    President Obama is coining a new campaign slogan for a three-day western campaign fundraising tour, along with executive action that would not need Congressional approval on some mortgage and student loan relief. “We Can’t Wait” is the battle cry he takes first to Las Vegas, where the president intends to stand on the front porch of a home and announce that his administration will ease the rules for homeowners who want to renegotiate their federally backed mortgages. In Las Vegas, one in every 39 homes is in foreclosure, the worst rate in the nation.

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — It sounds like a horror movie: Biting ants invade by the millions. A camper's metal walls bulge from the pressure of ants nesting behind them. A circle of poison stops them for only a day, and then a fresh horde shows up, bringing babies. Stand in the yard, and in seconds ants cover your shoes. It's an extreme example of what can happen when the ants — which also can disable huge industrial plants — go unchecked. Controlling them can cost thousands of dollars. But the story is real, told by someone who's been studying ants...

    Anwar al-Aulaqi (AP/Muhammad ud-Deen) U.S. officials have given Anwar al-Aulaqi a newly elevated designation on the day of his death by drone strike, describing him as “chief of external operations” for al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Yemen. The new title, cited by officials at the White House and the CIA, reflects Aulaqi’s evolution from Muslim cleric to alleged terrorist plotter, as well as a desire by American officials to persuade the public that the extraordinary killing of a U.S. citizen overseas was warranted. U.S. officials also disclosed what they said were new details about Aulaqi’s operational role, saying that he personally had...

    In the thick of the debate over President Barack Obama’s health care reform bill, administration officials ignored warnings that one of its most controversial provisions was financially unsustainable and could leave taxpayers on the hook for billions of dollars. According to a report released Thursday by a working group of congressional investigators, officials inside the Department of Health and Human Services ignored numerous red flags about the Community Living Assistance Services and Supports program (CLASS) — and in some cases the officials went to work figuring out how to hide them. Now, those same officials are scrambling to come up...

    ....The image of Rick Perry and Barack Obama that has been circulating is worth 300, at most. The above “side-by-side comparison,” tweeted by David Limbaugh, has torn through the Internets of late. It’s supposed to be a “side-by-side comparison.” True, Obama is not actually 22. He’s 20. From a 20-year-old’s perspective, this is a tremendous and unbridgeable gap, but to everyone else it’s a case of potato, potato. But let’s take this as a comparison. What can we learn upon analyzing this photo? Perry accessorizes with airplanes. Obama accessorizes with very, very ill-advised hats. Perry gets a cool fighter...

Cops raced to the Mosman home of the 18-year-old victim, who is part of one of Sydney's wealthiest families, after she raised the alarm. A senior police officer has described the device as a 'collar bomb' and it's believed a ransom note has been attached to the girl's neck.

    The House and presumably the Senate have finished a last-minute deal to increase the debt limit.  While it doesn't provide structural reform or much in the way of spending cuts, we think it is otherwise a better-than expected outcome for financial markets.    It should strengthen the dollar temporarily, lift equities and start the process of moving bond yields up toward more normal levels.  U.S. GDP growth and developments in Europe (particularly EU steps to counter the procyclical interaction between short selling, derivatives and ratings downgrades) are important remaining variables in the strength of the asset reallocation from bonds to equities.    Good outcome for...

At a Senate committee’s request, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) on Tuesday issued an analysis of proposed renewable (RES) and clean-energy standards (CES). The federal government has grown so large that it’s actually studying how to spend money to make electricity more expensive. In fact, it’s a White House priority. In his State of the Union address, President Obama called for 80 percent of America’s electricity to come from windmills and solar panels by...

    Update: Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) proposed a "contingency" plan for raising the debt ceiling Tuesday afternoon. Saying the "Senate will absolutely not be a party to a default," McConnell described a procedure allowing Obama to formally request a debt ceiling increase, for Congress to consider with a "motion to disapprove." Only one-third-plus-one votes in the both houses would be needed to raise the debt limit under the plan. McConnell said spending cuts would not necessarily be a part of the deal, which would raise the debt ceiling by $2.5 trillion in three tranches before the 2012 election.

    The Obama administration is set to begin formal contacts with the Muslim Brotherhood, a group dedicated in its own words to “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within, and sabotaging its miserable house.” This news came in a Reuters report Wednesday, quoting a “senior U.S. official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.” Why this official felt it necessary to speak on condition of anonymity is a mystery, given the fact that Barack Obama has never made a secret of his solicitude for the Muslim Brotherhood. Even though the Brotherhood was still outlawed in Egypt at that time, he made a...

    President Barack Obama's guarantee on $1 billion of Egyptian Eurobonds is poised to reduce the country's borrowing costs, helping the transition to democracy after six decades of autocratic rule. The support that Obama pledged last month may cut yields on the five-year debt by 200 basis points, or the equivalent of $100 million, according to the median estimate of five fund managers surveyed by Bloomberg. Yields on Egypt's one-year bills jumped to the highest level since November 2008 following the uprising that ousted President Hosni Mubarak in February. The country last sold international debt in April 2010. "The American backing...

    WASHINGTON — When President Obama emerged from spending talks last Thursday night, he went before cameras to insist that an agreement was needed to avoid a government shutdown that he warned would damage the country. What he did not do was make a public case for what should be in the agreement itself. During a week of budget brinkmanship, the president who signed the largest stimulus spending program in American history largely left it to his Senate allies to respond to the sharp clarity of the Republican austerity message rather than outline a clear vision of what the role of...

    I have no idea how else to introduce this latest Obama quote – from our erstwhile CiC – during his stop in El Salvador: And that’s why building this international coalition has been so important because it means that the United States is not bearing all the cost. It means that we have confidence that we are not going in alone, and it is our military that is being volunteered by others to carry out missions that are important not only to us, but are important internationally. And we will accomplish that in a relatively short period of time. [emphasis...

    The Politics of Picking an FBI DirectorBy Evan Perez March 16, 2011, 12:11 PM ET. For a job designed to be apolitical, there’s plenty of politics to consider as the Obama administration picks the next director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Mark Filip, deputy attorney general during the Bush administration, said one reason FBI Director Robert Mueller has many admirers in both political parties is that he’s viewed as honest and non-political in handling sensitive national security and criminal investigations. Mr. Mueller’s 10-year term ends in early September. Among the candidates being discussed, according to U.S. officials, are James...

    MADISON, Wis. -- Wisconsin's Democratic state senators will have votes they cast in committee counted and other penalties imposed against them will be rescinded after they returned to the state on Saturday. Republican Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald said Tuesday that assurances he received from Democrats that they will participate in future Senate sessions and votes allowed him to rescind finding the Democrats in contempt.

    1)RECKLESS Indifference to or disregarding the consequences; foolhardy; careless unconcern RECKLESS is a perfect adjective to use to describe Obama, as a poor steward of the public purse. It avoids accusing him of being misguided, which leads to excusing Obama for his actions or the charge of incompetence which leads to white guilt or the counter-accusation that Palin is also incompetent. Calling Obama incompetent is a losing proposition imho. Instead Palin should craft her narrative to look at Obama's record and not his motives or intentions. Like a driver who drives a car at hundred miles an hour in a...

    The trouble began, Theresa Smith said, shortly after she bought a hamster for her 9-year-old son. A few months later, the hamster, Princess Stephanie, was playing in its exercise ball on the floor of their apartment in Bushwick, Brooklyn, when an older son, who is 25, flew into a rage. “He kicked it deliberately, the ball flew across the room, the hamster flew out of the ball, and it died,” Ms. Smith said. After he had calmed down, the older son felt terrible, she said. “He was very remorseful,” Ms. Smith said. “He bought my son three more hamsters.” This...

    Sick of carving up my hands as I wrestled with those ubiquitous clamshell packages, I bought a super duper package opening tool which promises to make this chore easier, but I nicked my skin on the clamshell packaging as I struggled to get to it. In that minor sense, my experience mirrored Obama's week, where everything domestic and international that he touched upon only further wounded him. The Gallup and Rasmussen polls reflect only a continuing well-deserved slide in his and his party's standing among voters who have taken good measure of his consistently rotten performance. Over There As the...

    From the proposed law: 'Prenatal murder' means the intentional removal of a fetus from a woman with an intention other than to produce a live birth or to remove a dead fetus; provided, however, that if a physician makes a medically justified effort to save the lives of both the mother and the fetus and the fetus does not survive, such action shall not be prenatal murder. Such term does not include a naturally occurring expulsion of a fetus known medically as a 'spontaneous abortion' and popularly as a 'miscarriage' so long as there is no human involvement whatsoever in...
  • DC judge rules in favor of ObamaCare

    The split opinion of judges all over the country continue. D.C. Federal District Judge Gladys Kessler has ruled the health care law to be constitutional. In her ruling, Kessler says: First, this Court agrees with the two other district courts which have ruled that the individuals subject to § 1501’s mandate provision are either present or future participants in the national health care market. See Liberty Univ., 2010 WL 4860299, at *15 (“Nearly everyone will require health care services at some point in their lifetimes, and it is not always possible to predict when one will be afflicted by illness...
