SNIPPET: "There are currently only three jihadi forums that are sufficiently active and well-connected to be of any interest whatsoever. Why we claim to be on the verge of defeating al-Qaida while simultaneously watching passively as they use these forums to regroup and regenerate is beyond me. These are the forums three: • al-Fidaa, a forum created by al-Qaida core. That it is directly linked to al-Qaida by definition moves it to the top of the list. Current membership: 2,462, all of whom can be considered "active" if only because they just joined the forum....

"This is a big f------ deal," Biden whispered to Obama, unaware his comments were audible. A quote by Rep. Joe Barton, R-Texas, angered many people. Barton made his quote as the White House was trying to fend off criticism over how it handled the massive...

    My new special – Politicians’ Top 10 Promises Gone Wrong – airs again tonight. One of their failed promises is that if government fosters home ownership, that will benefit most everyone. President Clinton even claimed: “Our homeownership strategy will not cost the taxpayers one extra cent.” Bush was on board: “We want more people owning their own home. It is in our national interest.” Most politicians agreed. But those conceits, like so many others, went horribly wrong. When the housing bubble popped and millions lost their homes many blamed greedy bankers. Senator Bernie Sanders complained that: “Outrageous greed, recklessness and...

The AFI jury (which included my EW colleague Lisa Schwarzbaum) also gave special awards to two films that were not eligible for the top 10: The King’s Speech (ineligible because it’s British) and Waiting for “Superman” (which couldn’t be considered because it’s a documentary).

    "We spent a fortune to elect Barack Obama - $60.7 million to be exact - and we're proud of it," Service Employees International Union (SEIU) President Andrew Stern proclaimed last year. Now he and other labor leaders want a full return on their investment. "A full return," more than anything else, means getting Congress, the executive branch and the courts to transform labor law and policy into vehicles for a massive expansion of union membership and bargaining power. That goal surely would have been realized were it not for dogged and principled opposition.

    The last few days have seen an extraordinary outburst of criticism of Arizona’s new immigration law.  In the nation’s elite media outlets, its most respected commentators are portraying the law as an act of police-state repression.  Many, if not all, of the specific criticisms can be refuted simply by reading the law itself, but others are more generalized criticisms of immigration enforcement.  In any event, it’s hard to choose the most over-the-top and wrongheaded commentary on the law, but here are ten choices, in no particular order.  (If you don’t know why a particular statement is wrong, you can check...

    Surprising to many, the Exxon Valdez spill is only the 34th largest oil spill ever. And while the Deep Water Horizon spill is a disaster by any means, it remains distant to this top 10 list (Hopefully it never makes this list). I decided to publish this list because I’ve heard a handful of people say it’s the end-of-the-Ocean/Gulf-as-we-know-it. While it will take time to cleanup the surrounding shores from this environmental disaster, there is no doubt the Ocean and Gulf of Mexico will continue. See Top 10 List...

    When one judge overturned the will of more then seven million Californians last week in Perry vs. Schwarzenegger, he listed 80 supposed “findings of fact” (FF) as evidence that Proposition 8 violates the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution. Many of those 80 findings are not facts at all. They’re lies or distortions. Before we address the top ten false “facts” asserted by Judge Vaughn Walker, there is one real fact in his opinion that defeats the entire case for his opinion.

See yesterday’s column here if you missed the first five false “facts.” 6. “No credible evidence supports a finding that an individual may, through conscious decision, therapeutic intervention or any other method, change his or her sexual orientation.” (FF 46) I guess thousands of ex-gays just don’t exist in Judge Walker’s special-pleading universe.

    The stunning decline of Barack Obama: 10 key reasons why the Obama presidency is in meltdown By Nile Gardiner The last few weeks have been a nightmare for President Obama, in a summer of discontent in the United States which has deeply unsettled the ruling liberal elites, so much so that even the Left has begun to turn against the White House. While the anti-establishment Tea Party movement has gained significant ground and is now a rising and powerful political force to be reckoned with, many of the president’s own supporters as well as independents are rapidly losing faith in...

    Ever since Obama started chastising the GOP for not coming up with "new" ideas, I've been wondering what "new" ideas could be originating from his administration... 10. Point out how our trillion dollar deficits meet the goal of avoiding gazillion dollar deficits. 9. Hire the first official White House chiropractor under the code name, "Dr. Obowma." 8. Make it crystal clear that the president TOTALLY opposes gay marriage....except in cases where the participants are straight (or gay)...seriously though...yuck... ;-D 7. Muslim outreach will include NASA putting Mars on hold until the president knows the effects of zero gravity on...

    Comment with your own additions! I always love what Freepers come up with :-) 10. Since they have the agenda we can't start until the teleprompters get here. 9.

    It's maybe a little soon for this one, but My last top 10 list was very well received I got amped up to make another one. Now that we have many of the primaries out of the way and the election landscape is taking shape, I wanted to help set the tone for it. Everyone knows how this works, if I missed any good ones let me know by commenting below! 10. Vote Democrat, dozens of MSNBC viewers can’t be wrong. 9. Betting all of your money on red, so we can drown in ink that's red, brought to...

    Everyone knows how this works, if I missed any good ones let me know by commenting below! 10. Didn’t know about the spill because the teleprompters were on vacation. 9. Someone challenged him to see how many rounds of golf he can play before people get pissed. 8. Didn’t want to act until his team created an oil spill graphic that incorporated his logo 7. Was too busy waterboarding Rahm Emmanuel for answers on why his cabinet calls him President Jenga. 6. Didn’t know where to go because “Caution Slippery Floor” signs wont stand on water. 5.

    It is hard to figure out which is the dumbest one so I will leave the particular order to you. Here is what the mighty Obama administration had to endure so far: - Closing Gitmo without closing it; - Shahzad making a dry run on Times Square practicing bomb planting; - AbdulMutalab lighting a bomb in his underwear on a plane despite the fact that his father spelled his name to the officials weeks before; - Nidal Hasan attending few of the Presidential Transition Task Force of the Homeland Security Policy Institute meetings and making Power Point presentation of...

    For the 19th consecutive year, the Labrador Retriever has held on to its title as America's "Top Dog," according to the American Kennel Club's (AKC) 2009 registration statistics. In a nod to watchdog breeds, the German Shepherd Dog overtook the Yorkshire Terrier to claim the spot of "second most popular pooch" for the first time in more than three decades. An American favorite since the time of Rin Tin Tin, the German Shepherd Dog became the number one breed of the 1920s, but then slipped in popularity until after World War II. The German Shepherd Dog isn't the only working...
