  • Poll: 33% Of NFL Fans Say They Purposely Stopped Watching This Year

    An interesting result, as it raises a question that isn’t often asked about declining NFL ratings. How many people are boycotting because they *agree* with the player protests? SEE ALSO: Julian Assange may be stuck in the Ecuadorean embassy… forever To think, 33 percent of NFL fans missed out on one of the worst quarterbacked playoff games of all time this past Saturday in Jacksonville. If there’s any doubt that Kaepernick’s exile from the league is due partly, or even mostly, to politics rather than ability, go watch game film of Jags/Bills and ask if either team wouldn’t have benefited...

    WASHINGTON — More than 700 people have left the Environmental Protection Agency since President Trump took office, a wave of departures that puts the administration nearly a quarter of the way toward its goal of shrinking the agency to levels last seen during the Reagan administration. Of the employees who have quit, retired or taken a buyout package since the beginning of the year, more than 200 are scientists. An additional 96 are environmental protection specialists, a broad category that includes scientists as well as others experienced in investigating and analyzing pollution levels. Nine department directors have departed the agency...

    Joe Biden's unique trait as a politician is -- and always has been -- his honesty. Sometimes that honesty gets him into varying degrees of trouble. Sometimes it makes it seem as though he's the closest thing to a real person you could possibly hope for in politics.

    ......"There is no more serious issue in a presidential campaign than trust," Obama told a rally of 11,000 people in Florida. "Everything he's doing right now is trying to hide his real positions in order to win this election." That argument was laid out by Obama in Monday night's debate with repeated accusations that Romney has shifted numerous policy positions since the Republican presidential primaries, when he was targeting his party's conservative base............

    Barack Obama had no national primary challengers in his second nomination race in most states, including Kentucky. Who knew it would still be a tough choice for voters? Kentucky voters in the Democratic primary preferred the empty slot to the empty suit, apparently: About two out of every five Democratic voters in Tuesday's presidential primary in Kentucky chose "uncommitted" instead of voting for President Barack Obama. "I'm at a victory celebration for 'uncommitted' who performed admirably" said [state GOP chair Steve] Robertson. "I've never met the guy but know that he highly embarrassed Obama."Robertson contended that the Democrats who vote...
  • In one month, Bush memoir sells as many copies as Clinton's did in six years

    Washington Examiner ^ | December 26, 2010 | Mark Hemingway
    Former U.S. President George W Bush's memoir has sold an astonishing two million copies since it was released in early November - and it's not even in paperback yet. 'Decision Points', published both in hardcover and e-book form, is flying off the shelves, the Crown Publishing Group says. By contrast, former president Bill Clinton's memoir, 'My Life', has logged sales of 2.2million copies since it was first published in 2004. A spokesman for Crown called the performance remarkable. He claimed he could not think of any other hardcover nonfiction books in 2010 tha

    Enough with the Lincoln analogies; Reagan is the president that Barack Obama is most closely modeling himself after. Ronald Reagan inherited stagflation, a defeat abroad and a nation at its nadir in morale. Through the sheer force of his personality as much as his policies, four years later, it was "Morning in America," the theme of his 1984 re-election campaign when he won 49 states. Obama isn't president yet, but his determined calm and orderly transition pace appear to be soothing the financial markets, producing the first sustained gain in stocks since the mid-September meltdown. On Jan. 20, Obama will...
  • Ron Paul Explores Presidentian run in 2008

    Rep. Ron Paul has been hailed by many as the "only true conservative" left in the U.S. Congress, and he perhaps has one of the largest grassroots followings of any U.S. Representative. Rep. Paul has now formed an exploratory committee to seek the GOP nomination for President of the United States in 2008. There is an unconfirmed rumor around the net that he will tap Tom Tancredo to be his running mate. Some conservatives say this could be the "dream team." Both men have very large grassroots support and both oppose the third-world invasion of the United States. A paleolibertarian...

    Fears of federal authorities rounding up illegal immigrants also spur drops in attendance at churches. Fears of illegal immigration crackdowns in Tulsa have led to the cancellation of a major Cinco de Mayo festival this weekend as well as shrinking attendance at Hispanic churches. "The rumor is very strong about immigration (authorities) picking up people," said Blas Gaytan, coordinator of the Cinco de Mayo event at Expo Square. The rumors are unfounded, officials say, but the fear created by them is still affecting public gatherings. Anticipating weak attendance at the Cinco de Mayo event, Gaytan and Expo Square officials decided...

    NBC White House correspondent David Gregory ate a little crow Sunday on this "Meet The Press," apologizing for his arrogant behavior during White House press briefings dealing with the shooting of a hunting companion by Vice President Cheney. Reacting to the storm of criticism leveled by the public at the Washington press corps for complaining that they were not told immediately about the incident, leaving the job of reporting it to a small-town Texas newspaper, Gregory apologized for his boorish behavior. "I think I made a mistake,” he told host Tim Russert. "I think it was inappropriate for me to...

    Cross posted at Huffington Post Amid the scandal about the President’s secret spying on law abiding Americans, I asked Professor Harvard Law Professor Laurence Tribe, the most respected legal scholar when it comes to constitutional questions, for his opinion. You can read his entire letter to me in plain text in the extended entry below, but – as first reported by the Wall Street Journal – his analysis confirms my suspicions that this is an utterly lawless and unconstitutional act. My reading of his letter: from the perspective of legal scholarship, the Administration’s justifications don’t pass the laugh test. To...

    That clearly was the intent of White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove in leaking to a reporter that former Ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV's wife, Valerie Plame, was a CIA agent. To try to conceal the fact that the president had lied to the American public about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program, Rove attempted to destroy the credibility of two national security veterans and send an intimidating message to any other government officials preparing to publicly tell the truth. Rove's lawyer now says that Rove didn't break the law against naming covert agents because he didn't know...

The contest involves using pages from the Muslim holy book to create papier-maché pigs. Jon Alvarez's site also gives links showing how to get a free copy of the Koran and how to make papier-maché.

    New York -- The New York Times Co. lowered its outlook for second-quarter advertising revenue on Thursday and predicted that earnings would come in below its year-ago results. The newspaper publisher, which also owns The Boston Globe and the International Herald Tribune, said advertising has improved over a year ago but continues to be "uneven" across categories. As a result, the company predicted that ad sales will grow by low to mid-single digits, instead of the mid-single digit growth previously forecast. "While advertising revenues in the second quarter have exhibited modest year-over-year improvement, the ad market remains uneven across categories...

    Rush Limbaugh sounds off on controversy as many urge boycotts, firing of president An apology by PepsiCo's president who likened the United States to a middle finger is apparently doing little to calm outrage caused by her remarks. In the wake of WorldNetDaily's coverage of Indra Nooyi's commencement speech to graduates at Columbia Business School in which she compared the U.S. to the middle finger with both positive and negative connotations, consumers are vowing to boycott the company, and the topic is being widely discussed on talk radio.
