    Bush will deliver a "major speech" speech Thursday on the progress of the war in Iraq and the broader conflict against terrorism, the White House said Wednesday. Bush will deliver his remarks at 10:10 a.m. "Over 30 percent of the Iraqi troops are in the lead on these offensive operations. We've got troops embedded with them, and that's an important part of the training mission," he said. Bush to give greater detail White House press secretary Scott McClellan characterized Bush's planned remarks Thursday morning as a "major speech" that will address the connection between Iraq and the broader war against...

    There are just a few more things that I want to address you on regarding the nomination of Harriet Miers to be an associate justice of the United States Supreme Court, and we can couple this with this fun little exercise that I want to present to you today to help illustrate a point. Now, the Supreme Court this morning heard oral arguments in a big case. This is a case about the assisted suicide law in the state of Oregon. The people of Oregon have twice voted by pretty substantial margins for assisted suicide, letting the medical community "off"...

    Saudi security forces appeared to act expeditiously when Friday night, June 18, hours after the decapitated body of the American engineer Paul Johnson was found in Riyadh, they killed his purported murderer, Abdulaziz al-Muqrin in a shoot-out in the capital. Not surprisingly, Al Qaeda quickly denied the death of the most prominent of their Saudi leaders. In a statement released over their affiliated Web sites, they accused the Saudis of lying. In the execution of Paul Johnson, Usama bin Ladens group took its savagery to an unprecedented extreme. After performing this atrocity, they published three horrendous photographs -- one showing...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - President Bush offered a glowing tribute to former President Clinton on Monday as the White House unveiled the official portraits of the 42nd president and his wife, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton. Bush rode into office on a promise ``to restore honor and dignity'' to the White House after eight years of Clinton, and he was bitter at Clinton for defeating his father in the 1992 presidential contest. But on Monday, Bush delivered a lengthy, forceful defense of his predecessor, and welcomed dozens of Clinton administration officials back into the White House.

    AUGUSTA - Six months into a ban on smoking at Maine bars, the president of the Maine Restaurant Association says business at some establishments is down by 30 percent, especially at bars near the New Hampshire border. "Business is off big time," Dick Grotton said. "The law continues to be a source of extreme irritation." Jibryne "Gubby" Karter, owner of Waterville's Bob-In, said he paid nearly $10,000 for a heated outdoor patio after a very slow January. "Without the smoke deck, I'm sure business would be off 20 percent," he said. But supporters of the smoking ban, which outlawed all...

One of the good things one can truthfully say about Islam is that there has never been any love lost between Moslems and Marxists. Sadly, the opposite end of the totalitarian political spectrum is quite another matter. SS chief Heinrich Himmler was known to remark that he regretted that Germany had adopted Christianity, rather than "warlike" Islam, as its religion, and there is a disturbing amount of...

These two unbelievable creatures repeated the audio several times – as the station was flooded with phone calls and e-mails of understandable rage.

According to the Drudge Report today, John Kerry's campaign has settle on the words "Let America be America Again" as their campaign theme. There's only one problem. Kerry plagiarized the phrase from a poem written by black writer Langston Hughes.

Now the German producer-director has helmed a new disaster flick, "The Day After Tomorrow," which opens at the end of the month. It is little more than election-year political propaganda. "Ten-thousand years ago, one storm changed the face of our planet," proclaims the film's slickly produced trailer. "On May 28 it will happen again." Indeed, the picture opens with the collapse of an Antarctic ice sheet, which causes a massive change in ocean currents, which shuts down the...

    Recent moves toward legal recognition of same-sex marriage in two Canadian provinces and Massachusetts, as well as the issuance of same-sex marriage licenses by the City and County of San Francisco, have confused the picture for employers trying to understand their legal obligations under California's broad new domestic partnership law. Domestic partnership is not a marriage. It is an alternative to marriage. In general, employers whose employees marry same-sex partners in Canada (which currently allows same-sex marriage) and Massachusetts (which may soon) will not have any legal obligations as a result. The federal Defense of Marriage Act, like the laws...

    <p>An AT&T Broadband employee who was fired after refusing to abide by company rules that he said violated his religious beliefs about homosexuality has won a federal court case. Judge Marcia S. Krieger of the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado awarded Albert Buonanno of Denver $146,269 for lost salary, loss of 401(k) matching contributions and compensation for emotional distress in a Friday ruling released this week. The judge found that although there was no direct religious discrimination against Mr. Buonanno, AT&T Broadband failed to show it could not have accommodated Mr. Buonanno's beliefs "without undue hardship" to the company he had been with for nearly two years. Mr. Buonanno objected to language in a new employee handbook issued in January 2001 that said "each person at AT&T Broadband is charged with the responsibility to fully recognize, respect and value the differences among all of us," including sexual orientation. He was fired after refusing to sign a "certificate of understanding" acknowledging that he agreed to the policy. The Civil Rights Act requires employers to reasonably accommodate the religious beliefs of employees unless the employer can show it will create an undue hardship on the company to do so. Mr. Buonanno felt his Christian beliefs prevented him from valuing or agreeing with homosexuality, which he views as a sin, but he pledged not to discriminate against or harass anyone, said John W. Whitehead, president of the Rutherford Institute, the group that represented Mr. Buonanno. "This issue is about more than an objection to homosexuality," Mr. Whitehead said. "It concerns the freedom of conscience — the right of individuals to object to something they believe is wrong, especially when it contradicts their religious beliefs, whether it is war, abortion, homosexuality or a number of other issues." A spokesman for Comcast, which owns AT&T Broadband, said, the company "is disappointed in the court's ruling," which they said appears to ignore attempts by companies "to foster diversity and nondiscrimination in the workplace." The spokesman, who asked not to be named, said the company is reviewing the case and might appeal the ruling. Mr. Buonanno did not ask the court to reinstate him as a quota specialist, instead seeking monetary compensation. He now works for Mental Health Corporation of Denver as a counselor. The ruling could embolden other Christians or religious people to challenge similar policies, said Mr. Whitehead, who expects court challenges to the "sensitivity training" companies sometimes require, which he said often aims at training workers to accept and value diversity, including homosexuality. "I think Buonanno is just the tip of the iceberg," Mr. Whitehead said. Mr. Buonanno wasn't asking anything that would unduly burden the company — such as granting him every Wednesday off for religious purposes, Mr. Whitehead said. "All he was saying that he couldn't agree that he would value the homosexual lifestyle ... which as a fundamentalist Christian he sees as a sinful lifestyle," said Mr. Whitehead. But AT&T made "no attempt to even reasonably accommodate him," and they couldn't show undue hardship would occur if they did. In the ruling, the judge listed several things the company could have done to avoid the situation, such as communicating better, getting more details about Mr. Buonanno's concerns, clarifying what the company intended by the language in question, accepting his pledge not to discriminate, or even rewriting the language to make it less ambiguous.</p>
