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...

    1) Greece is a leftist hellhole: Over there, if you're not a Socialist, you're a Communist, and that country is still capitalist in spite of herself. 90% of Greeks hate us, and they're set on making the lives of our athletes a living hell: Booed, heckled, jeered, being yelled at on the street, and being general assholes towards the US athletes. Conversely, many of the Games spectators will come from the assorted European Socialist reichs, so it will compound to the general misery our athletes would have to endure. 2) Greece hasn't got its act together in regards of security....

    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...

    Islam’s Nazi Connections By Serge Trifkovic | December 5, 2002 An essay adapted by Robert Locke from Dr. Serge Trifkovic’s new book The Sword of the Prophet: A Politically-Incorrect Guide to Islam. 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...

    Horse-race polls based on national samples continue to show the presidential election a tossup. But the first attempt to systematically poll the battleground states -- the ones that hold the key to the outcome -- suggests that if the election were held now, Sen. John Kerry would win a crushing Electoral College victory.Pollster John Zogby has launched a project to follow 16 battleground states -- eight that Bush carried in 2000 and eight that were carried by Democrat Al Gore. The first sounding, taken May 18-23 and published in the Online Wall Street Journal last week, had Kerry ahead in...

    Regular Army soldiers in Iraq sleep in fortified accommodations while National Guard troops are in unprotected tents and using filthy showers, according to e-mail messages from several North Carolina soldiers. Staff Sgt. Roosevelt McPherson of Raeford said in a series of e-mail messages from Forward Operating Base McKenzie near Samarra that the National Guard soldiers have nowhere to seek shelter from almost daily mortar attacks, The News & Observer reported Wednesday. McPherson serves in the Monroe-based B Battery of the 1-113th Field Artillery. "The regular Army troops have bunkers, hangars or fortified connexes," he wrote. "It is only by the...

    Former Vice President Al Gore was to call for the resignation of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and several other Bush administration officials in a scathing attack on the president’s foreign policy Wednesday, people familiar with the speech told The Associated Press. In a speech at New York University, Gore was to argue that several officials, including National Security Adviser Condoleeza Rice, CIA director George Tenet and a top military leader should step down because the situation in Iraq is out of control. He was expected to place blame for the Iraqi prisoner abuse scandal directly on the Bush administration officials,...

    In Portland, Ore., two shock-jock disc jockeys, Marconi and Tiny, were fired by radio station KNRK. On their May 12 morning show, they played the audio portion of the beheading of American Nick Berg, laughing and joking after hearing Berg's screams, as these crazed Islamic terrorists threw him on the floor and one of them used a large knife to cut off his head. These two unbelievable creatures repeated the audio several times – as the station was flooded with phone calls and e-mails of understandable rage. At the end of the program, they were fired and apologized for, on...
