    HARTFORD, Conn. -- A Navy officer who was dismissed last month as commander of a Connecticut-based nuclear submarine faked his own death to end an affair he was carrying on with a mistress, investigation documents show. Navy Cmdr. Michael P. Ward II was relieved of his duties aboard the USS Pittsburgh a week after taking command of the attack submarine. Investigators found that Ward sent his mistress an email from a fictitious person named "Bob" in July, saying that Ward had died unexpectedly, according to a report obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press through a Freedom of Information Act...

    Notice the title of his book here!!!Perhaps a more accurate title would have read - Juan Williams Canned by NPR "National Public Radio" for "Anti-Muslim" Remarks... ON FOX NEWSLiberal commentator, Juan Williams, has been terminated by NPR for remarks made on Fox News's The O'Reilly Factor.  The Dem-apologist - who has made great strides in recent years toward a permanent move to the Right  - made comments regarding post-911 travel and was unceremoniously bounced from publicly funded radio.  Tax payer dollars at work right?  Free Speech in action? You can see the comments at the center of the firing below....
  • Fired Miami-Dade Transit Director Speaks Out (Parallels Bush Prosecutor Firings!)

    CBS4) MIAMI Miami-Dade’s former Transit Director is going public with his side of the story. Last week, Mayor Carlos Alvarez fired Roosevelt Bradley, one of the county’s highest African-American administrators. Bradley has been in charge of the transportation department for the last 4 years, but has been with department for more than 20 years. Alvarez defended his actions saying Bradley was fired for a number of performance and personnel issues, including violating the county’s nepotism rule. He denied it was racially motivated as some have claimed.

The vote at Gallaudet University came after a daylong closed-door meeting that followed a month of protests by students and faculty members. Jane Fernandes, the school's former provost, had been selected in May to take office in January.
  • Schwarzenegger Gives Up - His effort to reform Sacramento? Terminated.

    Arnold Schwarzenegger is following the wrong script. After taking over as governor in 2003, he was expected to vanquish business-as-usual politicians in Sacramento--and pull California from the brink of fiscal ruin. Instead, he has decided to put his own political future ahead of the economic survival of his beloved Golden State. How else to interpret his recent move to join ranks with his opponents in Sacramento to put a pork-heavy $37 billion bond infrastructure proposal on the November ballot? --snip--

Yet the Supreme Court thre out sodomy laws in all 50 states and recognized the right of government to seize land for any reason. And you couldn't pass your Social Security changes could you? Sorry, that was your last shot. Come November, we're going to start seeing more Democratic faces in the House. It's the end for you guys. You guys are celebrating when Bush's numbers go *up* to 45%.

    Bush’s giant Right Wing Noise Machine (RWNM) loves to preach about the Bush economic miracle. In fact, the RWNM’s current thinking is Bush doesn’t spend enough time talking about his economic triumphs. If only he did, then everyone would fall in line and believe in the great Bush economic miracle. There is one problem with this argument: it’s a lie. Any way you look at the Bush economy, it comes up short. Today, I want to compare Bush’s job creation record with other economic recoveries. As usual, Bush comes up way short. The national Bureau of Economic Research has identified...

    Stanley Tookie Williams executed Crips gang co-founder put to death for 4 murders Tuesday, December 13, 2005; Posted: 3:38 a.m. EST (08:38 GMT) SAN QUENTIN, California (CNN) -- Convicted killer and Crips gang co-founder Stanley Tookie Williams was executed early Tuesday at the California state prison at San Quentin. The execution went ahead as scheduled after the U.S. Supreme Court late Monday rejected a last-ditch appeal. The high court's ruling followed California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's decision to deny clemency for Williams, 51, who received a lethal injection at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday (3:01 a.m. ET).

    THE MOST DIFFICULT DECISION a governor ever has to make is whether to grant clemency to a condemned convict. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger made such a decision on Monday. He made the right call when he refused to spare the life of Stanley "Tookie" Williams. We do not say that blithely. Frankly, we cannot imagine having to make such a call. But we also cannot conceive of telling the family members of the dead that Williams had somehow redeemed himself by writing some children's books. Williams' case became national news because while in prison he has worked to steer children away...

    There is no such thing as a fusion candidate, no such thing a bipartisan campaign or non-partisan issue, and come election night, there are just two parties, one at the GOP HQ and one at the Dem HQ. There's a winner's party and a losers' party. Last night you were speaking to the losers' party. I didn't go. Why bother? The polls had shown for a few days that only Prop 75 had a chance (the measure to stop public employee unions from deducting political dues from their members' paychecks without prior authroization), and besides, most of your people aren't...

    SACRAMENTO Climaxing a record-breaking $300 million special-election upheaval, California voters all but crushed Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's “Year of Reform” package Tuesday, except for his adopted measure limiting union dues' political use that was narrowly failing. With 60 percent of precincts reporting, Schwarzenegger's reform centerpiece, the Proposition 76 spending limit, was rejected 60 percent “no” to 40 percent “yes,” plunging next year's political and budget battles into greater uncertainty. Schwarzenegger downplayed the unfavorable outcome, saying now “we are going to go and find common ground” with special election enemies. “We need more bipartisan cooperation. I promise I will deliver that,” Schwarzenegger...

    The Guardian has terminated a reporter's one-year training contract after a blogger revealed the writer was a member of a extremist Islamist political party and had not declared his interest to the newspaper when he wrote for its comment pages after the July 7 attacks. The Guardian's move - according to the newspaper, taken after reporter Dilpazier Aslam refused to resign from the party, Hizb ut- Tahrir - echoes recent media oustings in America, but is the first time a British journalist has been forced to step down after coming under fire from bloggers - independent web diarists.

    Attention California RECALL voters. In L.A. County only about 1700 polls will be open, compared to the normal 4900 in a regular election. It will be the same thing in other countries. If you go to your polling place and your name is not on the rolls ----- make sure you ask for a PROVISIONAL BALLOT. You will then be able to vote. You will need two forms of I.D. (Or as Handel described it: you will need two forms of I.D. unless you are Hispanic, don't speak English, and arrived at the polls with 14 others in a van.)
