    Florida State’s Attorney Angela Corey has been indicted by a citizens’ grand jury, convening in Ocala, Florida, over the alleged falsification of the arrest warrant and complaint that lead to George Zimmerman being charged with the second degree murder of African-American teenager Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida. The indictment of Corey, which was handed down last week (see www.citizensgrandjury.com), charges Corey with intentionally withholding photographic evidence of the injuries to George Zimmerman’s head in the warrant she allegedly rushed to issue under oath, in an effort to boost her reelection prospects. At the outset of this case, black activists such...

    How can I safely create a Facebook account without risk of the following: Facebook’s use of software that enables it to track users’ online activity after they log off of the social-networking site came under scrutiny in Washington this week, with lawmakers and consumer advocacy groups demanding a federal investigation. In a letter to the Federal Trade Commission, Reps. Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) and Joe Barton (R-Tex.) wrote that Facebook’s use of “cookie” software should be investigated under the “unfair and deceptive acts” clause of the agency’s mandate. “When people log out of Facebook, they are under the expectation that...

    ]The 2012 outlook is improving modestly from a disappointing 2011. Economic growth picked up in the fourth quarter of 2011 to 2.8 percent and is expected to come in at 2.3 percent for 2012, up from 1.6 percent growth for all of last year, according to Fannie Mae’s (FNMA/OTC) Economic & Strategic Research Group. However, the year-end growth rate was due largely to a positive swing in business inventory growth, which is not indicative of underlying consumer demand or the overall health of the economy. Nevertheless, consumer spending improved modestly and manufacturing and services activity expanded at a strong pace....

    Attack on Arizona Congresswoman Giffords The attempted murder of Congresswoman Giffords and the tragic killing of six others in Arizona has again exposed the political left. Before the assailant’s weapon had cooled off, leftists from all corners were scrambling to try to connect the madman’s act to Conservatism, talk radio, the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, the Tea Party and Sarah Palin. They have since been exposed as misinformed at the best, liars at the worst; the gunman has been shown to be one of their own.

    Iran is accelerating its uranium enrichment efforts and Israel could have only six months to destroy Tehran’s nuclear capabilities or risk an Iranian nuclear attack, according to influential Israeli columnist Caroline Glick. “Just as Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has dropped nearly all pretenses about his intentions to achieve nuclear weapons, so too he makes it clear daily that he intends to use such weapons to annihilate Israel,” Glick writes in the Jerusalem Post. “With Iran speeding up its program, Israel may have as little as six months to launch a strike on its nuclear facilities before they can start churning...

    When the felonious Duke — that is, Duke Cunningham, former U.S. Rep from California's 50th District — left office last December, we had every reason to hope for something better, someone at least a little less criminal. We even had hopes for honesty! And things looked up. A candidate entered the running promising to cut back on pork. Candidate Brian Bilbray had been to Congress before, and he looked back on that time fondly, claiming to have been on the right side in 1995. "There's still more to do," he clarified in his recent campaign. He went so far as...

    For the past six months, I've been staring at a 30-pound box filled with court documents and what's left of a young man's life following one college night and a 5- to 15-second disputed sex act. That is, 5 to 15 seconds into the act of sexual intercourse, she said, "Stop." He stopped immediately. She claimed rape. Thus, before his 23rd birthday, Rich Gorman of Orlando, Fla., was locked behind bars in the Liberty Correctional Institute near Tallahassee, serving a five-year sentence for sexual battery.

    I was aghast to read Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle's response to a question from The New York Times columnist John Tierney, "How long will blacks vote for a party that opposes the voucher programs they strongly favor?" Doyle's response: "I don't think this is an issue that moves voters." The discussion took place in context of the Democrat governor's opposition to moves to expand the number of vouchers available in the immensely popular and successful school choice program in Wisconsin. In a recently released Zogby poll, only 3 percent of respondents, with barely any difference between Democrats and Republicans, listed...

    We had a neighbor when I lived in DC who was part of the secret service presidential detail for many years. His stories of Kennedy and Johnson were the same as those I heard from the guys who flew the presidents' plane. Yes, Kennedy did have Marilyn Monroe flown in for secret "dates," and LBJ was a typical Texas "good ole boy" womanizer. Nixon, Bush 41, and Carter never cheated on their wives. Clinton cheated, but couldn't match Kennedy or LBJ in style or variety. The information below is accurate: The elder Bush and current president Bush make it a...

    Mike Wallace could be barred by his own network from covering gun-related stories on CBS News. The "60 Minutes" showboat correspondent appeared at a birthday party for columnist Art Buchwald -- a party that was also a fundraiser for the Brady Center, a prominent advocate of gun control laws. At the event Wallace showed a 47-second video of a past "60 Minutes" segment that, by Wallace's own admission, cast former NRA President Charlton Heston in a less-than-favorable light. In introducing the video, Wallace called Heston the "self-righteous enemy of the Sarah and Jim Brady bunch," according to a CBS News...

    British Prime Minister Tony Blair is pressuring the rich nations of the world to give more foreign aid to Africa -- to the tune of $25 billion a year by 2010. The U.S. already gave $3.2 billion last year. In the wake of this pressure, we might ask ourselves whether it's foreign aid that Africa needs most for economic development. A standard myth is there's a "vicious cycle of poverty" that makes economic development virtually impossible for the world's poor nations. This myth holds that poor countries are poor because income is so low that savings cannot be generated to...

    Is the United States a superpower? For years, we've assumed this was true. It was an easy assumption to make based on the amount of money we spend on our military and the high-tech weapons we've developed, from stealth bombers to precision missiles to satellites that can read license plates. But to be a superpower means being able to impose your will, by force of arms when necessary. Clearly, if America can't defeat its enemies in Iraq – the remnants of Saddam Hussein's corrupt regime, al Qaeda “emir” Abu Musab Zarqawi, and suicide bombers eager for their 72 virgins in...

    When Republicans took control of Congress in 1994, it was widely hailed as a revolution. Now, 10 years later, it is looking more and more like a coup d’etat that only changed the leadership while leaving everything else unchanged. In particular, the problem of an “Imperial Congress” seems little different today than it did under Democratic control. It is almost forgotten now how powerfully concerns about an Imperial Congress aided the Republican takeover. Democrats had controlled Congress more or less continuously since 1932. This bred arrogance and a casual disregard for the rights of the Republican minority. Even many liberals...

    U.S. Attorney David Kelley of New York City, who has concentrated on prosecuting rich white-collar criminals, has been assigned to investigate the young Republican aide accused of reading confidential Democratic communications. Manuel Miranda, who formerly advised Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist on judicial confirmations, was fired after he uncovered Democratic plans to scuttle President Bush's nominations. Sen. Orrin Hatch, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Frist refused to support Miranda. Miranda, a young father and husband, is currently unemployed.

But Kerry and other Democrats never mention when they whine about the 2000 election that ballots from America's military -- 75 percent of whom vote Republican -- were disqualified in greater numbers than ever before in history. Unfortunately, things aren't looking any better for the disenfranchised military voters this year, Human Events reports. An Internet absentee voting system was cancelled due to security concerns.

    1. Why American Chaos Reigns in Iraq Chaos continues to reign in Iraq because of the State Department's meddling, NewsMax has learned. A high-ranking Reagan administration official, who has talked to several Americans working in liberated Iraq, says the situation “is chaotic, and remains more chaotic than the press is reporting.” The culprit for the troubles: the State Department. As has been described to us, there is not one interim U.S. authority in Iraq, but two, one with orders from Foggy Bottom liberals who oppose President Bush, and the other from the Defense Department. A few weeks ago, the New...

    Despite stiff and unexpected Iraqi resistance, the U.S. invasion of Iraq is likely to succeed in toppling Saddam Hussein -- and British Prime Minister Tony Blair, President Bush, the Republican Party and American neoconservatives. Wars have unintended consequences as well as unexpected developments. The White House, the Pentagon, our troops and the public were surprised that Saddam Hussein did not "collapse after the first whiff of gunpowder," as Richard Perle, the principle architect of the war, had optimistically predicted. The promised "cakewalk" quickly bogged down into a stalemate, and other major setbacks have occurred. The Pentagon has been sobered by...

    The New York Times reported Friday that a nationwide poll conducted Thursday evening found that more than two-thirds of Americans support President Bush’s handling of the Iraq crisis. The Times said “support for President Bush's policy in Iraq has surged” – jumping more than 10 points from a week ago to 70 percent support today. But the paper noted strong partisan divisions in the nation and claimed the situation is “reminiscent of the partisan divide that marked the later years of the Vietnam War.” “While 93 percent of Republicans said they approved of Mr. Bush's handling of Iraq, just 50...

    The headline in last Friday's (Oct. 25) Washington Times said,"Thank God, It's Over." Two suspects in the terror rampage that killed 10 people and wounded three may be in custody, but it's not over. It has only just begun. The Western diplomat murdered in Jordan on Monday is just the latest incident of targeted Americans. While the Beltway sniper suspects may have acted independently of any known terrorist organization, it is not necessary to be commissioned by a foreign national in order to effectively carry out the wishes of America's enemies. It is past time to stop worrying about political...

    Everywhere you turn these days, someone on the left is denouncing President Bush as Hitler, Satan, a terrorist or a tyrannical emperor. A Yale law professor said Bush is "the most dangerous man on Earth." A famous editor referred to Bush as "a lawn jockey" and "Pinocchio." Some of the angry rhetoric flirts with the fringe idea that the United States planned the terrorist attacks. A Purdue professor said "there is no ground to be certain" that America and Israel aren't behind the 9/11 attacks. A Columbia law professor compared 9/11 to the Reichstag fire in Nazi Germany -- Bush...

    On the Palestinians, the Israelis, and what now? Q: Given that peace is always better than war, why don't the Israelis just give the Palestinians what they want and be done with all this violence? A :It wouldn't end the violence. And what the Palestinians want is the destruction of Israel. Arafat and the Arabs/Islamists are pledged to it. The Arabs/Islamists have attacked Israel at least four times - the first time, notably, on the very day of Israel's creation as a state by the United Nations. Q: But all they want is their land back. Don't the Palestinians have...
