    Acting Homeland Security Deputy Secretary Ken Cuccinelli was publicly harassed Wednesday by Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley when the two ran into each other at a bar in Washington, D.C. They crossed paths at an Irish pub, The Dubliner, where they were both attending an event for graduates of Gonzaga College High School. Rather than being able to enjoy his Guinness, however, Cuccinelli was subject to a “passion-laced and shame-invoking tirade” by O’Malley over the Trump administration’s immigration policies.

    Britain’s 90-year-old monarch has made a rare foray into political affairs, being caught on film characterizing Chinese officials as “very rude” in their dealings with British counterparts during a state visit last year. Queen Elizabeth II made the unguarded comments Tuesday while talking to a senior police officer at a rain-soaked garden party on the grounds of Buckingham Palace. With uncharacteristic bluntness — rarely if ever heard in public — the queen said the Chinese had not dealt properly with Barbara Woodward, the British envoy to China. “They were very rude to the ambassador,” Elizabeth said. …
  • Who has the standing to call Putin's actions in Ukraine - nekulturny?

    At the end of WWII the Russian army raped and pillaged as they pushed the Nazis back into Germany [that barbarian nature that they have - yet are so sensitive about]. One thing that would cause them to pause [halt their knee-jerk barbarism] was being called nekulturny. No matter how uncouth and barbaric a Russian is by nature, they are very sensitive to being called on it. Someone with authority [which leaves out Obama and Kerry] needs to paint Putin as being nekulturny - UNCULTURED! Kerry did exactly this when he said Putin was acting so 19th Century, not like...

    I am amazingly tolerant and can discuss, debate, and disagree with anyone about anything and still respect them in their wrong-headed beliefs. Every American has a right to be wrong. However, today I am shamed as an American by our crop of leaders (who can’t lead) who are daily embarrassing this once-great nation. Obama (call him President if you choose, I won’t) blackened and besmirched his office and this nation when he told an interviewer, “Well, that’s a bullsh—er, I can tell,” referring to his opponent, Gov. Mitt Romney. I even blush using the word in a disguised form. Not...

    Sen. Arlen Specter, Pennsylvania Democrat, said part of the reason that he left the Republican Party last week was disillusionment with its health-care priorities, and suggested that had the Republicans taken a more moderate track, Jack Kemp may have won his battle with cancer. Mr. Specter, responding to a question from CBS' Bob Schieffer over whether he had let down Pennsylvanians who wanted a Republican to represent them, said he thought his priorities were more in line with those of the Democrats. "Well, I was sorry to disappoint many people. Frankly, I was disappointed that the Republican Party didn't want...

    "Bush, a hateful (edited) himself, nominates a hateful (edited) to the Supreme Court, even as his circle of hateful (edited) narrows under indictments" Samuel Alito. This is the guy Bush chose to replace the Bob-Dylan/birdwoman Harriet Meiers. Alito's record shows he supports HUGE restrictions on civil rights. Here is how a well-known law journal summed up his views on minorities and women: "Alito has a disturbing record in cases involving discrimination based on race, disability and gender. Under his judicial philosophy, victims would face near-impossible burdens to..." The AP reported today that Alito was going to the Capitol Rotunda with...

    Putin: Ally or Terrorist? by William F. Jasper Counting Vladimir Putin as an ally against terrorism ignores his career in the murderous KGB/FSB and his ongoing support for terrorist regimes and organizations. ‘‘Lena Goncharuk, aged 38, said that she was the only one to survive out of a group of six who were ordered out of the cellar where they had been hiding and shot at point blank range. Resting in her hospital bed, her voice barely rising above a whisper, she said she had survived only by pretending to be dead." So reported Paul Wood from the Chechen border...
