    Times On Line (UK) ^ | April 8, 2010 | Tim Reid, Washington
    The Obama Administration has taken the unprecedented step of authorising the killing of a US citizen, the radical Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, linked to the plot to blow up a US airliner on Christmas Day. The move to place Mr al-Awlaki, 38, on a hit list was taken after a White House review concluded this year that he had moved from inciting terrorist attacks to taking part in them. The decision is extraordinary not only because Mr al-Awlaki is believed to be the first American whose killing has been approved by a US President, but also because the Obama Administration...

    WASHINGTON — The third-ranking Senate Republican said Wednesday the Obama administration appears to be launching a Richard Nixon-like political strategy of making an “enemies list” of people who disagree with the president. Sen. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, who once worked in President Nixon’s administration, warned the White House that such a “street brawl” approach of attacking political opponents “can get you in a lot of trouble.” Alexander offered no evidence that Obama is developing an actual list, as Nixon famously created for his opponents. But, he said, “I have an uneasy feeling only 10 months into this new administration that...

    Fox News Behaving Badly? -- Jack Engelhard October 15, 2009 02:27 PM EDT The Obama administration has found the enemy and it is Fox News. The New York Times and CNN got it straight from the lips of White House communications director Anita Dunn who revealed that, “We’re going to treat them [Fox News] the way we would treat an opponent.” Hello Lady? The press is SUPPOSED to be an opponent! That’s why it’s called the Fourth Estate, to keep a sharp eye on the other three Estates, executive, legislative, judicial. Nowhere is it written that the press shall collaborate...

    Paging Jonah Goldberg! If this developing story did not smack of some twisted Orwellian nightmare then I might chuckle, but instead I am left wondering if this is the start of something bigger. In any event, I am not sure if there has been a precedent of this nature and I am holding the White House responsible. Unless of course if Secret Service calling up individuals because of what they post on the Internet is normal, then perhaps I am just over reacting.

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Supporters of Proposition 8 were publicly identified Monday after a judge decided last week that their identities could not be kept secret.A federal judge on Thursday denied a request to keep the names of donors to California's anti-gay marriage initiative secret, saying the public has a right to know who's giving money to state ballot measures. Supporters of the initiative, which was approved by voters in November, had sought a preliminary injunction to hide the identities of those who contributed to their campaign. They had asked the judge to block disclosure of late donors, who gave in...

    More than dozen people living in New Mexico and Texas are named in what appears to be a hit list from a Mexican drug cartel, law enforcement officials said. At least one police officer from southern New Mexico is among the 15 to 20 people named in the threat, said Arturo Baeza, a sheriff's captain in that state's Luna County. The list, thought to be a threat from one of Mexico's powerful and warring drug cartels, was provided June 12 to local authorities by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials, Baeza said. Drug cartels are waging a bloody fight for...

In addition, nine girls were also threatened with impending doom.

    Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger got off to a fast start in his annual September Veto Parade yesterday by saying he would reject state Sen. Sheila Kuehl's nonsensical, poorly drafted bill mandating that California adopt socialized medicine. It is a sad commentary on the Legislature that Kuehl's bill made it this far. Perhaps the governor next can tackle measures that are, respectively, anti-consumer, anti-common sense and pro-corruption. AB 2592, by Assemblyman Mark Leno, D-San Francisco, would allow car-rental companies to omit the cost of airport fees when advertising rental rates. How does Leno – who sees himself as a classic liberal do-gooder...

    2008 presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton said Monday that she's horrified over allegations that U.S. Marines executed innocent Iraqis in the town of Haditha last November after their convoy was hit by a roadside bomb - and she's vowing to expose any cover-up by Marine brass. "This is the kind of horrific allegation that has to be investigated, and we're going to start in the Senate doing just that," she told the New York Daily News, after marching in Chappaqua's Memorial Day parade. The comments by Clinton, who sits on the Senate Armed Services Committee, seemed to contradict remarks by committee...

"To imply that they might use something such as the independent regulatory process of the FCC to exact revenge against media organizations that they find to be enemies or not supportive of their cause is just astounding," Hyman told Fox News Channel's "Special Report with Brit...

    In three weeks, U.S. and allied forces launched a massive invasion of a thirty-year totalitarian regime, ousted its notoriously tenacious leader, and brought forth the genuine, albeit chaotic, liberation of a long-suffering populace. But as Iraq attempts to rebuild its infrastructure and government, yet another question remains: What about Syria? The home of Hamas, Hizbollah, and a new wave of ex-employees of the Hussein regime, terror-happy Syria would seem a natural target for invasion – if the idea of another U.S.-led incursion in the Middle East didn't send a special kind of shock and awe throughout much of the world....
