    Volunteers take part Wednesday in a weapons-training session given by Libyan government soldiers at a military camp in Tarhouna. TRIPOLI—On a recent morning dozens of trucks filled with bulk food products coming via neighboring Tunisia were offloaded at the country's largest wholesale market outside the Libyan capital here. The goods, including bags of flour and rice, filled warehouses as well as trucks headed to other centers sympathetic to Col. Moammar Gadhafi such as Sebha in the south. Most food supplies used to arrive by sea at the ports of Tripoli and Misrata, Libya's commercial hub farther east. Imports have been...

    America’s progress is “impossible” if Hispanics keep lagging in education because their success is of “immediate and long term importance” to the U.S. economy, according to a new Obama Administration report that vows to enhance opportunities for the “Latino community.” Published this week by the Department of Education, the enlightening document ( Winning the Future; Improving Education for the Latino Community ) says that the success of Hispanics in education and in the labor market is crucial to the nation’s economy. The information comes as the president launches a full-throttle campaign pandering to immigrants and their liberal advocates. It...

    German police on Friday detained three alleged members of al-Qaida, federal prosecutors said, as a report said they had been plotting attacks in Germany. The prosecutor's office in the southwestern city of Karlsruhe said the trio had been taken into custody early Friday and would appear before a judge Saturday, when a news conference has been scheduled. It declined to provide further details. The daily Bild reported that the three were Moroccans living in the western German state of North Rhine-Westphalia and were caught with "large amounts of explosives". Citing security sources, the newspaper said they were suspected of plotting...

    President Barack Obama’s weekly approval rating remained at its all-time low for the second straight week, according to the Gallup poll. In the week of April 11-17 and again in the week of April 18-24, 43 percent of the Americans polled by Gallup said they approved of the job Obama was doing as president. That matched the all-time low for Obama’s weekly approval in the Gallup poll. Previously, Obama had earned a 43 percent approval rating in the back-to-back weeks of Aug. 16-22, 2010 and Aug. 23-29, 2010. Obama’s weekly approval rating peaked at 67 percent in the week of...

    Accuses 'the Donald' of engaging in 'malicious attacks on our president'A liberal activist group funded by philanthropist George Soros has reached out to some advertisers of Donald Trump's hit television show, "The Apprentice," claiming Trump is engaged in "malicious attacks on our president." On its Twitter feed yesterday, the Think Progress blog sent public messages to two companies that advertise on "The Apprentice" – Enterprise Rent-A-Car and Groupon.com. The blog asked each company, "Are you going to continue to sponsor The Apprentice and support Donald Trump + his malicious attacks on our president?" Think Progress is a project of the...

    Forecasts predict no economic improvement in 2011 The only thing dropping faster than President Obama’s poll numbers is America’s economic future. Only one in five believe the country is headed in the right direction, according to a Rasmussen Reports survey released Thursday. More than half of those responding to Gallup’s queries believe we are either in a recession or depression. The grim mood reflects growing disenchantment with administration policies that have sucked the life out of the economy. Reports piled up yesterday casting further doubt on the prospects for recovery. Just as many people stood in line last week to...

    White House senior advisor Valerie Jarrett said President Obama will not release his academic records, commenting a day after Obama put out his “long form” birth certificate and Donald Trump decided to press his luck by demanding Obama’s college transcripts. “We know this is nonsense,” Jarrett said in an interview on The Joe Madison Show on SiriusXM on Thursday morning.”He is almost 50 years old. And he is president of the United States and I don’t think anybody will debate his intelligence and so now we do need to get serious…let’s just get serious…get back to focusing on what’s important.

    TEHRAN (FNA)- Former Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki sees dim hopes for Barack Obama to win the next presidential election in the US, given the weak performance he and his administration have shown during his first term in office. "There would be no chance for Obama (to win) if elections were held today," Mottaki said on the sidelines of a press conference here in Tehran on Monday. He added that based on results of the latest opinion polls, Obama enjoys the lowest public approval compared with other US presidents. "He is entangled with the same problem that (former US President...
  • Budget tricks helped Obama save programs from cuts (spending cuts exaggerated)

    04/12/2011 8:04:55 AM PDT · by quesney · 62 replies
    WASHINGTON – The historic $38 billion in budget cuts resulting from at-times hostile bargaining between Congress and the Obama White House were accomplished in large part by pruning money left over from previous years, using accounting sleight of hand and going after programs President Barack Obama had targeted anyway. Such moves permitted Obama to save favorite programs — Pell grants for poor college students, health research and "Race to the Top" aid for public schools, among others — from Republican knives, according to new details of the legislation released Tuesday morning. And big holes in foreign aid and Environmental Protection...
  • Pentagon estimates Libya costs at $608 million (and counting...lots of angry comments)

    WASHINGTON – The Pentagon said Monday the military intervention in Libya cost the U.S. an extra $608 million in the first few of weeks of the operation. Spending is down significantly, though not as much as expected. Defense Department spokeswoman Navy Cmdr. Kathleen Kesler said it will take several weeks to tally exactly how much has been spent. But $608 million is the price tag officials have estimated through April 4 — or for 17 days of the mission, the most recent figures available. The estimate shows a large drop from what the U.S. spent in the early days of...

    Reading almost directly from Democrat talking points, the so-called "news" network MSNBC spent most of its prime time programming Friday claiming that if the federal government was shut down as a result of a budget impasse, it was because Republicans wanted to defund Planned Parenthood. Lawrence O'Donnell dutifully did his part in advancing this hysterical nonsense Friday, so much so that after reading a lengthy e-mail message from a poor friend of his that uses this organization's services, "The Last Word' host actually broke down in tears (video follows with transcript and commentary): LAWRENCE O'DONNELL: I’ve never visited a Planned...

    Re “Donald Trump Gets Weirder,” by Gail Collins (column, April 2): Even before Gail Collins was with the New York Times, she has written nasty and derogatory articles about me. Actually, I have great respect for Ms. Collins in that she has survived so long with so little talent. Her storytelling ability and word usage (coming from me, who has written many bestsellers) is not at a high level. More importantly, her facts are wrong! ...I don't need Ms. Collins's advice. There is a large segment of our society who believe Barack Obama, indeed, was not born in the United...

    When Donald Trump began testing the presidential waters in late February, it was easy to discard his efforts as nothing more than a public relations ploy. It seemed “The Don” was just looking for one more way to get the Trump name up in lights. Thus, like so many others, I was not impressed. Yet since that time, Trump has carved out a niche for himself politically and has not only proven his sincerity in considering a presidential run, but has also risen to the point of being the 2nd most popular candidate among possible GOP primary contestants. He has...

    The latest Pew Research Center national poll released today underscores how slender a beachhead President Obama has established among whites more than two years into his presidency. In his 2008 election, Obama ran well only among two groups of whites -- young people and white women with at least a four year college education, two groups that are generally receptive to government activism. In the 2010 GOP landslide, those groups stuck with Democrats relatively more loyally than the rest of the white electorate, but the party's support tumbled even among them. Figures provided to National Journal by Pew from the...
