    And Ruth Benn, a coordinator of the National War Tax Resistance Coordinating Committee, who is also threatening to withhold taxes as a way of protesting Donald Trump. These are movements designed to disrupt government, which in some case can be a noble effort, but not this time. This time it is immature, short-sighted and ultimately self-serving.

    On March 20th, 2009, Army Ranger 1st Lieutenant Michael Behenna was sentenced to 25 years in prison for killing Ali Mansur, a known Al Qaeda operative while serving in Iraq.

During the return of Mansur, Lt. Behenna again...

    Being confirmed Attorney General of the United States of American is a tricky thing. It's a little like playing poker. You gotta hold your cards close to the vest. In AG Eric Holder's situation one had to hold seven cases, which he was involved doing legal work for terror detainess, close to the vest and out of view of the Senate committee that was considering confirming him to the position of Attorney General. (not that it would have mattered anyway.) (see article)

    WASHINGTON - Presidents don't have indefinite veto power over which records are made public after they've left office, a federal judge ruled Monday. In a narrowly crafted ruling, U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly invalidated part of President Bush's 2001 executive order, which allowed former presidents and vice presidents to review executive records before they are released under the Freedom of Information Act. By law, the National Archives has the final say over the release of presidential records and Kollar-Kotelly ruled that Bush's executive order "effectively eliminates" that discretion. It allows former presidents to delay the release of records "presumably indefinitely,"...

    WASHINGTON – One of the architects of the Reagan Revolution is calling on fellow conservatives to withhold support of the Republican Party establishment – including most GOP incumbents in Congress this year. In "Conservatives Betrayed: How George W. Bush and Other Big Government Republicans Hijacked the Conservative Cause," Richard Viguerie, the man who invented the idea of using direct mail as a means of going over the heads of what he considered to be a biased establishment press, says it's time for radical action to save the Republican Party from itself. His plan includes the following actions, which would spell...

    WASHINGTON, Sept. 24 — U.S. anti-war activists launched a national advertising campaign on Wednesday urging Congress to withhold new funds for Iraq unless the White House agrees to transfer authority to the United Nations. Tom Andrews, a former Democratic representative from Maine and director of the Win Without War coalition group, said the television and print advertisements were designed to force lawmakers to address public unease over the U.S. role in Iraq.

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Nearly one in three doctors reports withholding information from patients about useful medical services that aren't covered by their health insurance companies, and the number may be on the rise, a study reports. Study authors say their work offers the first empirical evidence for what many have long suspected: that coverage limitations imposed by managed care are infiltrating doctor-patient communications. ``Patients aren't getting the whole story,'' said Matthew K. Wynia, director of the Institute for Ethics at the American Medical Association and lead author of the article being published in the journal Health Affairs. Wynia and his...
