    One of Trump’s most enduring and arguably most endearing campaign lines has been his promise to treat American vets better. When Trump dropped out of a Fox News debate in January he held a separate event at which he raised money for veterans. But three months later, Trump’s campaign adviser for veterans, Al Baldasaro, doesn’t seem too concerned about it. He told the Daily Beast, “I’m not concerned about it, because I know [Trump is] an honorable, honest guy… you guys just want to say, ‘gotcha.’”To be fair, Baldasaro is not a Trump staffer. The real problem is that...

    ... "I can see the bumper sticker now: “Vote Trump – Because there are jobs Americans won’t do.” Cruz and Rubio finally landed some blows against Trump in this debate; Rubio’s mockery was especially amusing (and unnerving for Trump), though my man Cruz’s attacks were more serious and grounded. But at this late date, the hits Trump took on his (lack of a) health care plan, tax returns, even Trump University, might not make any difference. But the whole point of his candidacy is that he’s a nationalist, that his first concern is for America and Americans; his (obviously unread)...

    Anti-government activists are reported to be planning to stage nationwide demonstrations against the ruling al-Khalifa family on 13 -14 February.

The gatherings are likely to focus on government buildings in the capital Manama, such as the interior ministry in the west of the city. Other potential rally venues are Exhibition Road, the Ras Ruman mosque near the Diplomatic Area in the north of the city, the US Fifth Fleet...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) President Barack Obama's proposed budget for fiscal 2012 will seek to cut the record federal deficit by $1.1 trillion over the next 10 years, White House budget director Jack Lew said on Sunday. Lew, speaking on CNN, said the president was also on track to halve the budget deficit by the end of his first term in office, which goes through 2012. But Republicans, who control the House of Representatives, said the spending cuts in the president's budget to be released on Monday were not enough. "We are reducing programs that are important programs that we care...

Recent reports claimed Marc walked out on Chelsea after a fight about starting a family.

    Hosni Mubarak had harsh words for the United States and what he described as its misguided quest for democracy in the Middle East in a telephone call with an Israeli lawmaker a day before he quit as Egypt's president. The legislator, former cabinet minister Benjamin Ben-Eliezer, said on TV Friday that he came away from the 20-minute conversation on Thursday with the feeling the 82-year-old leader realized "it was the end of the Mubarak era". "He had very tough things to say about the United States," said Ben-Eliezer, a member of the Labor Party who has held talks with Mubarak...

    Hey all! I was listening to Ramon Raquello and his orchestra (and who doesn't?) and just as they were playing "La Cumparsita", the program was interupted by a breaking news story from the Intercontinental Radio News with a bulletin on Mars. "At twenty minutes before eight, central time, Professor Farrell of the Mount Jennings Observatory, Chicago, Illinois, reports observing several explosions of incandescent gas, occurring at regular intervals on the planet Mars. The spectroscope indicates the gas to be hydrogen and moving towards the earth with enormous velocity. Professor Pierson of the Observatory at Princeton confirms Farrell's observation, and describes...

Tiger!) indicating the success of the surprise mission. By 1945 he had attained the position of the Imperial Navy's Air Operations Officer. When he heard about a bomb dropped on Hiroshima. He flew to investigate, then sent a grim report to the Imperial Command. On the same day, an American P.O.W. named Jacob DeShazer felt moved by the Holy Spirit to pray for peace. DeShazer...

    Mexico City - In the North American capital it was announced that the United States Dollar would be retired from circulation and replaced with a new currency, dubbed the "Amero". Pictured below, the currency will be phased in over time, much as the Euro was, with a cutoff date for its full implementation in 2010. "There is no need to be alarmed," a treasury source said. "If you find some dollars in the mattress after that date you can still exchange them for Ameros at a fair market rate. You just won't be able to spend them on the open...

    Must Use Every Resource Available to Create Jobs (Columbus, January 24, 2006) Secretary of State Ken Blackwell today announced a dramatic new plan to boost Ohios economy by leasing the Ohio Turnpike to private investors and creating the JOB Fund (Jobs for Ohio Businesses) with the proceeds. Based on recent similar leasing arrangements for the City of Chicago and the State of Indiana toll roads, Blackwells proposal should generate $4-6 billion for investment in economic development across Ohio. Recently published reports indicate Ohio has dropped to 47th nationally in job creation, said Blackwell. As our economy continues to falter, we...

More than 50 Australians are believed to be trapped in New Orleans and surrounding areas. Brisbane man Peter McNeil said his 22-year-old son John was stranded in New Orleans but had now moved with other foreigners out of the Superdome for their own protection. Violence...

    Mexico, U.S. must solve immigration problem Star Parker (archive) August 22, 2005 | Print | Recommend to a friend A Spanish-speaking academic friend tells me that the Spanish roots from which the name of my home state, California, is derived mean "hot as an oven." This is quite apt these days. California is a seething cauldron on the issue of illegal immigration. The Pew Hispanic Center in Washington reports that there are 10.3 million illegal immigrants in the United States today. More than half, 57 percent, are from Mexico. The largest concentration -- 25 percent of the total -- is...
