    Six former members of Congress to hear space alien testimony By Justin Sink - 04/29/13 11:29 AM ET Six former members of Congress have signed up for a week of congressional-style testimony on the existence of space aliens. The hearing, which will occur this week at the National Press Club, will feature some 30 hours of testimony on the possible existence of extraterrestrials and be recorded for a documentary film. Around three dozen researchers and academics are expected to testify. Participants will include ex-Sen. Mike Gravel (D-Alaska), and ex-Reps. Lynn Woolsey (D-Calif.), Rep. Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick (D-Mich.), Darlene Hooley (D-Ore.),...

Cheeks Kilpatrick, a member of Congress from 1997 to 2010 and mother of former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, will join five other former members of Congress to interview witnesses who claim a...

    Speaking at the National Press Club in late September, black pastor Bishop E. W. Jackson unapologetically said it was time for black Americans to take a stand for what is right and called for a mass exodus from the Democrat Party due to the "irreconcilable conflict" between what the Democrat Party represents and their faith in God. Regrettably, the Democrat Party has drawn a line in the sand forcing Christians of all colors to decide whether they will stand for their faith or against it if they stay in a party that blasphemes God when giving standing ovations for...

    Herman Cain may be the only presidential candidate in history to actually benefit from a sex scandal. Just hours after Politico broke a story about accusations of sexual harassment against Cain, the former Godfather's Pizza CEO killed it during a luncheon speech at the National Press Club. And then to top it all off, he SANG. After very little prompting to reprise his "Imagine There's No Pizza" performance at the Omaha Press Club, Cain launched into a surprisingly beautiful rendition of the Christian hymn "He Looked Beyond My Faults" — an interesting choice given the sex scandal.

    That's what Barack Obama told the nation over the weekend. "I do not have time for this silliness." The "silliness" he was talking about is the question of his own eligibility for the presidency. Yet, there he was Saturday night at the White House Correspondents Association Dinner spending more time in a soliloquy about just that issue. Which is it? Does he have time for it? Or doesn't he? Does he have time to prepare and deliver remarks about the controversy? Or doesn't he? Does he have time to obsess over it? Or doesn't he? Or is it a matter...

That is the supposition, based on developing information, at the New York Daily News, the Anchoress, and Strata-sphere.Here are the key grafs from the Daily News: The Rev. Jeremiah Wright couldn't have done more damage to Barack Obama's campaign if he had tried. And you have to wonder if that's just what one friend of Wright wanted.Shortly before he rose to deliver his rambling, angry, sarcastic remarks at the National Press Club Monday, Wright...

    Of course, a modern day Christ would have simply referred to Judas as a "distraction". Obama said he heard that Wright had given "a performance" and when he watched news accounts, he realized that it more than just a case of the former pastor defending himself. "His comments were not only divisive and destructive, I believe they end up giving comfort to those who prey on hate," Obama said. Newsflash, your majesty. Your pastor is the one who prays preys on hate and his flock are the ones offering him that comfort. Nice projection though. I'm pretty sure if Jesus...

    Scroll down for press conference blogging… What, pray tell, could Barack Obama possibly say now to undo the damage of his two decades of bad judgment about Jeremiah Wright? Will he weigh in on black liberation theology? Wright's phrenological discourse? How about Wright's defense of his comparison between the Roman soldiers who killed Jesus and the US Marine Corps? Inquiring minds want to know. Maybe we'll find out: Obama was asked about Rev. Jeremiah Wright just now by a woman in Winston-Salem who tells the audience to watch his PBS interview, which will quell their concerns. "I'm going to be...

    Asked at the National Press Club's luncheon on Monday “what do you see as the future vision for CNN now that Fox is gaining in market share and popularity?”, CNN founder Ted Turner leaned into the microphone and, prompting laughter and applause, produced a loud sputtering sound as he blew air through his lips with his tongue sticking out slightly -- aka "blowing a raspberry" or issuing a "Bronx cheer." "... the right-wingers have every right to have a network of their own and they've got one.”

    Guest of President Ahmadinejad Michael Rubin We live in a time when journalists want to be news, rather than report it. It wasn't too much of a surprise, then, when head table journalists at the National Press Club wanted to stand up and be recognized by name prior to the Ahmadinejad speech. What was a bit surprising was that one head table member, Kaveh Afrasiabi, was introduced as Ahmadinejad's guest. Hmm. Afrasiabi has contributed several op-eds to and published several letter in the New York Times. Each has forwarded the canard that if only Washington were more generous with the...

    Excerpt - Iranian Intelligence agents have entered the United States to spread disinformation, according to the Iran Policy Committee, a group composed mostly of former U.S. government officials who are lobbying the Bush administration for regime change in Teheran. The agents, who reportedly flew into the United States from Toronto, Canada, using Dutch and British passports, held a news conference at the National Press Club in Washington Monday -- except no press showed up. When opponents of the Tehran regime who were present took photos and videos, the agents tried to have security officers confiscate the films and tape. The...

    Tin SoldierAn American Vigilante In Afghanistan, Using the Press for Profit and Glory By Mariah Blake In April 2004, a former U.S. Special Forces soldier named Jonathan Keith Idema started shopping a sizzling story to the media. He claimed terrorists in Afghanistan planned to use bomb-laden taxicabs to kill key U.S. and Afghan officials, and that he himself intended to thwart the attack. Shortly thereafter, he headed to Afghanistan, where he spent the next two months conducting a series of raids with his team, which he called Task Force Saber 7. By late June, he claimed to have captured the...

    The recent slip of the lip by ole Teddy Kennedy about "waterboarding" during the confirmation hearings must have taken him back in time to Chappaquidic Creek, yeah, it was not funny...he kept a straight face. The smiles of others in the crowd told the story. On C-span airing of the National Press Club he really hit his stride in liberal rant. During the speech he advocated 'cradle to the grave' healthcare, raising the minumum wage, and other ideas to let your gov't take care of you. If the Democrats lost, it was because of (tax and spend)their philosophy - gov't...

    WASHINGTON, Sept. 28 - George Soros, the billionaire philanthropist who has given $18 million to Democratic advocacy groups to defeat President Bush, is preparing to spend millions more because he fears that Senator John Kerry might lose. Mr. Soros announced on Tuesday that he was sending himself on a $3 million 12-city tour to argue that keeping Mr. Bush in the White House would endanger the nation's security, economy and values and continue "the vicious circle of escalating violence in Iraq." By mid-August, Mr. Soros had given more than $15 million to advocacy groups like America Coming Together. At that...

Traitor, friend of anti-American dictators everywhere, founder of Communist-front International Action Center (IAC), former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark spewed his usual slanders against our great and good country and its great and good military and President. Clark had previously spoken these lies at numerous of the antiwar protests organized by IAC-offshoot Communist-front International Action Now to Stop War and End Racism (ANSWER).

Just kidding. Sort of. I can't tell you how moved I have been at the overwhelming support I have received from newspapers throughout the country in these past few days. I hold no illusions that all of these journalists agree with me on my views against the war. While the journalists' outrage at the cancellation of our appearance...

    ABC's Peter Jennings sees an ominous new threat in the world. Not weapons of mass destruction or terrorism, but another vast right-wing conspiracy at home, specifically, the supposedly "well organized and aggressive efforts to make life very difficult for celebrities who speak out against the war." Jennings ended Tuesday's World News Tonight with this plug for Wednesday's show: "That is our report on World News Tonight. Tomorrow on the broadcast, the well organized and aggressive efforts to make life very difficult for celebrities who speak out against the war. I'm Peter Jennings. Have a good evening, and good night." I...

    Actor/Director Tim Robbins hates free speech. So does his long-term partner, Susan Sarandon, as well as Janeane Garafolo, Martin Sheen, The Dixie Chicks, Mike Farrell, Sean Penn, Michael Moore, Harry Belafonte, Ed Asner, Danny Glover, Chrissie Hynde, and other ''anti-war'' celebrities. They only love free speech when they are using it to bash the military, President Bush, and America, both in our own media and overseas. However, when the American consumer, offended by their blame-America first rhetoric, reacts with petitions and boycotts, the words ''blacklist,'' ''undermining free speech'' and ''suppressing dissent'' are used by these celebrities. Hollywood is scared, because...
