  • Report: John Kerry Cleared His Schedule to Discuss Arming Syrian Rebels

    Yahoo! News ^ | 6/9/13 | Abby Ohlheiser | The Atlantic Wire
    It looks like the U.S. government will give serious thought this week to arming Syrian rebel groups, days after Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces re-captured the key city of Qusair. Secretary of State John Kerry, according to an AP report, has pushed back his mideast trip this week because the White House is planning to discuss sending weapons to some rebel groups. Kerry was supposed to go to Israel and Palestine to hack away at a peace plan for the region. But, perhaps because Syria's situation became even more pressing this week, the Associated Press's sources say that reported trip...

    PJ Media ^ | 4/10/13 | Ian Smith
    Attorney General Eric Holder began his tenure by calling Americans cowards regarding racial issues. Newly released documents reveal that Holder’s schedule shows a preoccupation with racial issues: he spends an inordinate amount of time meeting with race-centered organizations. Recently, the Department of Justice began making Holder’s daily schedules available online. Although the schedules are far from complete and heavily redacted, the compiled summary below (links to documents provided) shows how much time and access the office of the attorney general allocates to ethnocentric lobbyists and race-based associations. For 2009, Holder’s first year as AG, over just a nine-month period (the...

    WASHINGTON – The White House on Monday rejected charges that President Obama is traveling on the taxpayer dime to campaign in swing states more frequently than any of his predecessors, saying a new study doesn't take into account that Obama "expanded the political map dramatically" in 2008 so that states not previously considered battlegrounds now are. White House spokesman Jay Carney argued that a Wall Street Journal study that showed Obama has attended 54 events in 11 battleground states over 42 days between Jan.1 and Nov. 17, 2011,

    Herman Cain wins the Florida straw poll, and, all of a sudden, his dance card is full. Next week will be a particularly busy one for the candidate.He’ll meet Monday with the Donald, only the third out-and-out candidate to do so. (Rick Perry met with him earlier this year and Mitt’s meeting with him today.) Why that should matter, I’m not quite sure, except that Donald Trump is adept at stirring media attention and also, just like Sarah Palin, must at all costs be dissuaded from a third-party run (which has always been a remote possibility for Trump, but a...

    citizen5408.com ^ | June 29, 2011 | Greg C.
    According to the White House, the President doesn't work all that much. During the month of May, which included 21 working days, President Obama claims he worked about 92 hours (91.95 to be exact). That's according to the White House schedule, posted on the whitehouse.gov Website. That equates to an exhausting 4.4 hours per day. Excluding his grueling G8 summit travels during the week of May 23 (when he was forced to endure eight hour work days!), Mr. Obama worked an average of 3.25 hours per day when at the White House in May. Indeed, the President's schedule is so...

Polling this week has been characterized by military officials as a “historic” moment for Iraq that, barring a catastrophic event, paves the way for the drawdown of U.S. forces from 98,000 to 50,000 before September. Asked in a news conference today if a potential balloting result exists that could change the pace of U.S. withdrawal, Army Maj. Gen. Terry A.

    Last update - 22:36 13/12/2005 U.S. to Israel: Bus convoys must start on schedule By Akiva Eldar and Gideon Alon, Haaretz Correspondents, and Haaretz Staff The American administration is demanding Israel implement an agreement it signed with the Palestinian Authority and allow bus convoys traveling between the Gaza Strip and West Bank begin on the agreed upon date. Israel Defense Forces Chief of Staff Dan Halutz said Tuesday that Israel would not allow the convoys until the PA cracked down on rocket fire from the Gaza Strip into Israel. "Israel has no intention of allowing passage to Palestinian convoys from...

    I just ran across this page from DirecTV, outlining their "upgrading" to XM over Music Choice. I must say, i am disappointed. i see little tanjible content difference, other than *2* talk channels: one sports channel, and one comedy disc jocky show... No FNC Radio, no OTR channel, no other talk channels... not even PBS or NPR... I *did* see some commercials on FNC, saying that it would be starting on XM in mid January.. But it made no mention of DirecTV. http://www.directv.com/see/landing/xm.html For me...this works out to be a non event..if this is all there is.

    A plan to shuffle the 2008 Democratic presidential calendar -- placing several states between the traditional Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary -- is gaining momentum on a commission studying the party's nominating process. A consensus is developing to recommend scheduling nominating contests in two or possibly three states in the days between Iowa and New Hampshire, according to some members of a Democratic National Committee panel looking at ways to revamp the nominating schedule. The commission is to make a final recommendation to the DNC at its Dec. 10 meeting. If such a recommendation were adopted, it likely...

    It's always shocking when the left unmasks itself — it's usually very brief but when it happens not only can't you turn away, it's actually important that you don't. While it would seem impossible, the left has found a new low, this time courtesy of both the Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times. On the same day, both newspapers published bizarre attacks on the most basic values of personal appearance and physical health of the president and those he supports. It's the newest indication of how frustrated and frenzied the left has grown in the face of an America...

    Hillary Clinton Schedule To Be In Ohio Monday POSTED: 4:13 p.m. EDT July 23, 2005 COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman will get a boost for his campaign for governor when he shares the spotlight with Senator Hillary Clinton and other Democrat heavyweights Monday. Coleman is playing host to a meeting of the Democratic Leadership Council in Columbus. The mayor's only Democratic opponent so far in the 2006 governor's race is staying away from the meeting. U.S. Representative Ted Strickland disagrees with the Democrat centrists on trade policies. Many influential party leaders have been invited to the conference, including...
  • Typical Daily Presidential Schedule

    05/15/2005 11:24:10 PM PDT · by Kermit Morningstar · 1 replies · 3,690+ views
    Does anyone have any idea about what a typical day for the President looks like? I'm writing a story about a fictional President, and I'm trying to figure out what a "normal" day for a President would consist of. Specifics would be nice (meetings, with who, how much time off, eating, etc.) but content is not necessary, since I'm really just looking for a generic day. I have some idea, mostly from West Wing, Tom Clancy, and a great interactive site from the Ford Library about a day in the life, but I figure at least some things would change...

    Tokyo -- Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said in an interview today that he will make public his daily schedule, a move that open government advocates say will provide an unprecedented look at how his administration determines public policy. The governor said he will release a complete calendar of his first year in office, including whom he met with. His comments came just days after voters approved Proposition 59, which seeks to strengthen open records laws and follows a formal request by a media law group to make his calendar public. Schwarzenegger said the decision was in keeping with a campaign pledge...
  • Request for information: Senate special session on climate change?

    In the article linked above, entitled "Arctic climate researchers welcome US efforts on global warming", I read this: "The US Senate is expected to devote a special session to climate change on November 16, Corell said." Given that the Senate is apparently reconvening on November 16, according to the Senate Web site, I figure that everyone would be too busy to pay much attention to a special session like this. Does anyone have "inside" information?

    In defense of Lt. Bush By Charles D. Youree, Jr. President Bush's military service is being unjustly vilified. I feel a sense of anger and frustration when I hear that instead of volunteering for Vietnam, Mr. Bush "hid out" flying fighter/interceptor jets in the Air National Guard (ANG) for four years. As a former Air Force pilot with 6,000 hours of flying time, including more than 3,000 hours in jet fighters, I know that whenever you strapped yourself into a jet fighter and took off, you were in harm's way. Your life was on the line. As fighter pilots, we...

    Three crucial debates loom large By Andrew Miga Thursday, September 2, 2004 NEW YORK - Next stop, the presidential debate stage. With the two-month battle to Election Day in full roar, President Bush and Sen. John Kerry are looking ahead to their three planned debate showdowns - events that both sides say could prove pivotal in the razor-close race. The first prime-time encounter later this month will be a good opportunity for both men to win over undecided voters who hold the key to victory in 2004. ``Many of these undecided swing voters in the middle are not going to...
