    Dems dispute report they are pulling back ad support for CarnahanBY JAKE WAGMAN Friday, October 8, 2010 1:58 pm Washington Democrats are disputing a report that indicates they have lost some hope in Senate hopeful Robin Carnahan. According to Hotline on Call -- a website run by the National Journal -- the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has canceled two weeks worth of ad buys in Missouri for the next two weeks. Hotline quotes two Kansas City television stations confirming the move. "Yes, the weeks of Oct. 12 and Oct. 19 have been canceled for the DSCC in our station," Sean...

    On September 24 the F.B.I. raided the homes of several leftist activists across the U.S.A. looking for links to foreign terrorist organizations. Most if not all of those raided or questioned were members of the "Fightback" faction of the Freedom Road Socialist Organization. Formed from several Maoist factions in 1986, Freedom Road split in the late 1990s two form two distinct organizations of the the same name. The "Fightback" group publishes a newspaper of that name and is strongest in Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin.

    Hundreds of Christians from a dozen nations joined together with 3,000 Israelis on Sunday evening in the small Samarian Jewish community of Revava to mark the end of the self-imposed Jewish building freeze in the so-called West Bank. The Christians were in Israel to participate in the annual International Christian Zionist Center (ICZC) Feast of Tabernacles celebration. The theme of this year’s feast was Genesis 22:17, where God promises Abraham that his “seed shall possess the gates of their enemies.” ICZC Director Jan Willem van der Hoeven thought it fitting that his group demonstrate their belief in that passage by...

    Palin support the kiss of death? August 21, 2010 It has been a summer of setbacks for Sarah Palin: Candidates she has endorsed have been suffering a recent string of primary election losses. The Republicans' 2008 vice presidential nominee promised a pack of "mama grizzly" candidates would rise up and defeat Democrats in November. But office-seekers she supported in Kansas, Wyoming and Washington state lost their primaries despite her high-profile endorsements. And Karen Handel lost her runoff contest for Georgia governor a day after sharing an Atlanta stage with Palin. Alaska's Senate primary on Tuesday may end up an embarrassing...

    LONDON (Reuters) – A leak of thousands of classified U.S. military documents has damaged the ability of foreign forces to gain the support of Afghans against the Taliban, a British military spokesman said on Thursday. Major-General Gordon Messenger told reporters the leak last month by whistleblowing organization WikiLeaks had not given Taliban insurgents a tactical advantage, but the documents' disclosure of Afghan contacts could deter further cooperation. "I think the damage that I would highlight is to the Afghans that were named. We rely upon very, very many Afghans who are prepared to nail their colors to the legitimate Afghanistan,...

    Gallup’s latest weekly compilation of polling data on President Obama’s job approval rating shows him at 85 percent among black Americans, down from a 94 percent approval rating among blacks as recently as March. Obama’s approval rating among Hispanics in the latest poll, 52 percent, is also his lowest rating among that group in Gallup’s weekly measurement. He was in the low-to-mid 60’s earlier with Hispanics earlier this year. Obama’s approval rating among whites is 38 percent, mostly unchanged from recent weeks but down a few points from the beginning of 2010.

He said that after a two-hour meeting with "the Jewish lobby" there were those who promised to tell Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to break up his coalition or declare his recognition of the two-state solution to the Arab-Israeli dispute.

At the Idaho State Republican Party Convention on Friday in Idaho Falls, a committee vetting resolutions criticized the federal government for not enforcing immigration laws and praised Arizona for taking up the cause. Arizona's law, which takes effect July 29, requires police to check the immigration status of anyone they think is in the country illegally. Violators face up to six months jail and $2,500 in fines. The Idaho convention panel urged the federal government "to protect the states...from foreign invasion." But...

    I believe it was Jean Giraudoux who first said, "Only the mediocre are always at their best." Barack Obama was supposed to be the best, the very best, and yet he is always, reliably, consistently mediocre. His speech on oil was no better or worse than his speech on race. Yet the Obammyboppers who once squealed with delight are weary of last year's boy band. At the end of the big Oval Office address, Keith Olbermann, Chris Matthews and the rest of the MSNBC gang jeered the president. For a bewildered Obama, it must have felt like his Ceausescu...

Sixty-one percent of Americans – and 64 percent of registered voters – said they favored the law in a survey of 1,016 adults conducted May 6-9. Strikingly, nearly half of Democrats like the law, under which local law enforcement officers are tasked with verifying people's immigration status if they suspect them of being in the country illegally....

    Democrats have deluded themselves into believing Americans will learn to love Obamacare now that it has passed. When Republicans promised to run on a platform of repealing Democrat's health care reform bill, President Obama actually said, "Go for it." In spite of the positive press and hoopla Obamacare received from the mainstream media last weekend and during President Obama's signing, there has been no polling bump. (see chart) More than fifty percent (pdf) of Americans oppose the massive government takeover of health care. Some of the good things Democrats claimed would take place this year have proven to be false....

    So, let’s get this straight: On a visit to Israel by Vice President Biden, a lower-level, Israeli government agency announces its intent to build more housing units in East Jerusalem and the Obama administration goes nuclear, condemning the announcement as though it was a violation of some sacred agreement between the two countries—which of course it wasn’t. The Israeli government, in turn, apologizes for the timing of the announcement but is told that this will not be enough. Israel now must, according to the administration, “prove” it wants peace. Now, shift to yesterday in Russia: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton...

Turkey’s “formerly Islamist” president, Abdullah Gul, in a weekend telephone conversation with his Iranian counterpart called for a deepening of bilateral relations and voiced support for Iran in international forums. Turkey is non-permanent member of the U.N. Security Council, the most important international body to have Iran on its current agenda.

Ex-president Bill Clinton, himself no stranger to humiliating and public exposure over his extramarital affairs, is also thought to have called to offer his support.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Supreme Court justices on Tuesday questioned whether a law that bars Americans from providing support to foreign terrorist groups violated constitutional rights of free speech and association. Some justices seemed concerned the law outlawed the provision to such groups even of advice about lawful advocacy, such as petitioning the United Nations or filing legal briefings in American courts. The hour-long arguments represented the first test to reach the Supreme Court after the September 11, 2001, attacks pitting First Amendment rights of free speech and association against government efforts to fight terrorism. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said verbal...

    2/8/2010 - SOUTHWEST ASIA (AFNS) -- To any other member of the 965th Expeditionary Airborne Air Control Squadron, the five Canadian airmen who work with them are a part of the team.

Their presence with the 965th EAACS; however, is part of an international partnership between the United States and Canada -- known...

    Conservative Examiner ^ | 2-3-10 | Robert Moon
    The RNC continues to spin the successes of candidates like Mark Kirk (R-IL) as the same kind of revolutionary citizen uprising that took Massachusetts by storm. Even the news media are already framing Kirk's likely victory in November as a sequel to Scott Brown. But Scott Brown was not a radically anti-gun, openly pro-abortion environmental extremist who voted for Cap-and-Trade...

    WASHINGTON, Jan. 8, 2010 – Discussions about the Army’s use of unmanned systems in the combat theater are likely to focus on bomb-detecting robots and ground vehicles able to navigate through hazardous terrain.

    It is my understanding that the tax laws governing campaign funds require that if a person holding office does not use up all of the money held in the campaign fund when that person ceases to hold that office must transmit all the remaining money in the campaign fund to at least one non-profit organization. Which means that if the office-holder sets up a new non-profit before quitting office, the remaining campaign funds can be channeled to the person's new non-profit tax-free (they were also tax-free to begin with). When Bob Dole left the Senate, I think he had a...
