    House Democratic leaders are amplifying their calls for Republicans to take immediate action on President Obama's request for emergency funds on the southern border. Rep. Xavier Becerra (Calif.), chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, emerged from a closed-door meeting of the group on Wednesday to say there's “a general consensus” that Congress should pass Obama's $3.7 billion package immediately. “There's generally a sense that we need to act,” Becerra said, “and so we should try to act as quickly as we can.” Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, a Texas Democrat who recently visited the border, described dismal conditions among the young...

    Next week, the Obama administration is planning to unveil a climate action plan that it intends to implement without legislative approval. It’s a creative approach to governing, not unlike other executive actions President Obama has taken to bypass Congress. When lawmakers refused to pass cap-and-trade legislation, Obama announced there was more than one way to skin the cat. Through climate plans, executive orders and regulatory action, he directed his agencies to find ways to curb the country’s carbon dioxide output and commit to reducing greenhouse-gas emissions.

    With no major world power posing any kind of a threat to them, China is donning their war paint and swaggering towards conflict. On the eve of Joe Biden visiting Japan, China ratcheted up the rhetoric of war and militarily threatened Japan over China’s newly declared air defense zone. They boldly state they will ‘enforce’ new aircraft controls in a maneuver that amounts to a dare to Japan to step over this midair red line. Poke, poke, threaten, dare – repeat until something happens: Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman Geng Yangsheng accused Japan in a statement of “making trouble” and he...

    The European Union (EU) is apparently fed up with the lack of progress in peace talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA) and is threatening to take action against both sides if the talks fail. A senior EU official said Tuesday that the bloc was considering cutting its annual aid to the PA if the current round of talks fails to end in an agreement. The EU provides the PA with about 300 million Euros in aid per year. As well, the official was quoted by Israeli media as having said, the 28-nation bloc was considering reviving its plan...

Instead, the White House has suggested, they would be intended to punish Assad for the alleged gas attack in Damascus on Aug 21...

Beginning on Obama’s birthday, August 4, OFA will spend the month promoting the administration’s top issues ahead of the 2014 midterm elections: the benefits of enrolling early in Obamacare (August 4), immigration reform (August 5), climate change (August 13), gun control (August 21), and immigration reform again (August 31). “I’ve always said that running for office is not just...

    Over the course of the last month, while Americans were distracted with the threat of nuclear war on the Korean peninsula and the devastation wrought by the Boston bombings, President Obama was quietly working behind the scenes to craft laws and regulations that will further erode the Second Amendment. Congress, and thus We the People, may have unequivocally rejected federal legislation in March which aimed to outlaw most semi-automatic rifles, restrict magazine capacity, and force national registration, but that didn’t stop the President from ceding regulatory control over firearms importation to the United Nations just two weeks later. What the...

    Recognizing the time to act is now if we are going to stop any new gun control bills, Paul Valone of Grass Roots North Carolina sent out this alert last night. It says we need to meet the threat head-on. It proposes a three-prong approach consisting of contacting NC's Congressional delegation, conducting public education, and reframing the debate. Earlier alerts this week have discussed the ineffectiveness of the Gun-Free School Zone Act. The alert also gives contact information including phone numbers for the newly elected members of the North Carolina delegation. Given that they took a strongly pro-gun rights stance,...

    Some folks have said it’s like 1994 all over again. I disagree. There are many factors that are different. Some play in our favor, and some don’t. But the ones that do: * We have better access to the media than we did in 1994, such as this Dave Kopel article in the Wall Street Journal illustrates. * Back in 1994, the standard competition rifles were the M1A, the M1 Garand and M1 Carbine. If people owned a semi-auto, it was probably more likely to be a Mini-14 than an AR or AK. Today those have largely been replaced by...

    When it comes to becoming a physician, the academic rigors, years of schooling, and personal sacrifice common to the effort are well-known. This process is a sort of rite of passage, an intellectual marathon that only the best and brightest can complete. As such, medical schools should select candidates best-suited to excel throughout school and cultivate the skills that will allow them to practice in the best health care system in the world. The process by which these candidates are selected, however, may come as a shock. In examining documents made public by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC),...

He ran on irrelevancies like abortion and a fictitious Republican war against women. He didn't give his supporters any reason...

Johnson said that after reviewing a copy of the book, "No...

    It’s an Obama World… The Obama Department of Justice moved in this week to protect teachers with unacceptable English skills. Judicial Watch reported: Public school teachers with unacceptable English pronunciation and grammar are being protected by the Obama Administration, which has forced one state to eliminate a fluency monitoring program created to comply with a 2002 federal education law. Singling out teachers who can’t speak proper English in American schools—funded by taxpayers, no less—discriminates against Hispanics and others who are not native English speakers, according to the Department of Justice (DOJ). As a result it violates the Civil Rights Act...

    Late Thursday, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission announced that next year’s Playmate of the Year will be former White House press corps member Helen Thomas. The EEOC declared this its latestvictory in a never-ending quest for equality in the workplace. In a related story, shortly after the EEOC announcement, Hugh Hefner, 96, founder of Playboy Enterprises, died of a massive heart attack in his Los Angeles mansion. Uh, just kidding. I’m merely demonstrating that when we take social engineering to its logical conclusion, we get illogical results.

    This is going to be an easy one. Phones are jammed on the Hill. We are standing behind the tea party Republicans and to show our support we are mailing envelopes to President Obama and Harry Reid with labels of tea bags taped to the outside of the envelopes. When we sent tea bags before there was a problem with the string and bag that they might be bombs. This is harmless, just an empty envelope with a tea bag label taped to it. Makes a statement. They should receive hundreds if not millions. Obama keeps wanting to go in...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A Minneapolis mother is looking for the public’s help in finding a mob of teenage girls that she says assaulted her family. The attack happened Thursday afternoon inside Folwell Park on Minneapolis’ north side. Shawnee Twiet says she was in and out of consciousness when the attack happened. “As soon as I hit the ground, I just started feeling just everything coming from everywhere,” Twiet said. “I mean blows coming from the back of my head. I felt somebody grabbing the back of my hair.” She suffered a black eye, bruises all over her body and imprints...

    SEWELL, New Jersey-Mary Kay Coyne has just filed what she says is her 1,862nd job application since being thrown out of work three years ago. She is one of millions of Americans whose unemployment benefits have expired -- after 99 weeks in many states -- as the United States suffers its highest level of long-term unemployment since 1948. Coyne had to move in with a friend after benefit payments ran out last year. Now she gets by on Medicaid -- U.S. health insurance for the poor -- and food stamps, contributing what little she can to her friend's household costs....

    Clark County commissioners approved Tuesday the payment of $150,000 to settle a lawsuit by a former University Medical Center data technician diagnosed with claustrophobia, a condition that arose when she was forced to work in a cubicle. Jayne Feshold was a data technician hired by the county-run hospital in 1999. Her suit says she "worked without incident" until May 2007. Then the hospital's medical records department was moved to a new building and she was assigned to work in an area "consisting of a small cubicle workspace instead of a more open environment."

    A Tea Party protest will take place on August 11, 2011, starting at 8:00 A.M. in front of the Antrim County Michigan Courthoue, on M-88. The State of Michigan is trying to solve their deficit problem and insane spending by eliminating our Constitutinally created Township government. It is time to take a stand together and let these socialist see that we are not going to take their out of control actions, their 11 millions dollars of unfounded liability to Union members, when Antrim County provides no services to the people at large, and has no authroty to enter into any...

    Former half-term Gov. Sarah Palin has reportedly packed in her bus tour...halfway through. Real Clear Politics is reporting that Palin and her family have returned to Alaska from their "One Nation" bus tour, despite tentatively scheduled stops in Iowa and South Carolina. From Scott Conroy at RCP: Though Palin and her staff never announced a timeline for the remaining legs of her trip, aides had drafted preliminary itineraries that would have taken her through the Midwest and Southeast at some point this month. But those travel blueprints are now in limbo, RCP has learned, as Palin and her family have...

    First, let us start with a definition of a tech bubble.A tech bubble is the rapid inflation in the valuation of public and private technology companies that exceeds their fundamental value by a large margin. It is accompanied by the rationalisation of the new pricing, and then followed by a spectacular crash in value. (It also has the “smart money” investing early and taking profits before the crash.)Bubbles are not new; we have had them for hundreds of years (the Tulip Mania, South Sea Company, Mississippi Company, etc.). And in the last decade, we have had the dot.com bust and...
