    OTTAWA — Justin Trudeau caused uproar in the House of Commons today after he called Federal Environment Minister Peter Kent a “piece of s---” during a heated question time debate over the Kyoto Protocol. The Liberal MP for Papineau immediately apologized, admitting he “lost his cool” after Kent questioned why NDP environment critic Megan Leslie had not attended last week’s climate change summit in South Africa. Canada officially withdrew from the Kyoto accord on Monday, drawing pointed criticism from overseas signatories to the pact. Trudeau became incensed after Kent suggested that Leslie should have been in Durban for the UN...

    George W. Bush's return to the spotlight has resulted in big sales for his memoir, "Decision Points." His publisher, Crown, said Wednesday that the former president's book has sold more than 1.1 million copies since hitting shelves two weeks ago, The Associated Press reported. More than 135,000 copies were sold as e-books, according to the publisher. Bush kept a low profile after leaving office last year, declining interviews and avoiding comment on his successor and politics in general. But he emerged this month to promote the book, appearing in interviews with Oprah Winfrey, Jay Leno, Matt Lauer, Sean Hannity and...

    Following on the heels of the humiliating half-full arena with thousands of empty seats he shared yesterday in Cleveland with Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden this evening made his final 2010 campaign appearance in his home state of Delaware to a paltry crowd of 200.The AP reported on the rally:Biden headlined a Democratic rally in downtown Wilmington on Monday evening that drew about 200 people. In contrast, the Delaware News Journal reported that Republican Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell headlined a Tea Party Express rally also in Wilmington on Halloween that drew 1,000 people--five times the number Biden attracted the...

    Berlin - Chancellor Angela Merkel said Germans had for too long failed to grasp how immigration was changing their country and would have to get used to the sight of more mosques in their cities, according to a newspaper. (Snip) "Our country is going to carry on changing, and integration is also a task for the society taking up the immigrants," Merkel told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung daily. "For years we've been deceiving ourselves about this. Mosques, for example, are going to be a more prominent part of our cities than they were before," she added.

    Live now on Fox Rubio is framing the contrast very well. Excellent debate and criticism of Florida Governor Christie's support of the stimulus plan. Rubio: "We need someone who can stand up to Obama" Rubio on partisanship: "Lower the corporate tax, lower thwe capital gains tax, reduce the obstacles that make it increasingly hard to do business in America, and I'll be happy to cooperate....but what the Obama administration is attempting to do is fundamentally change America, and we can not cooperate on that."

    CNN poll: 52% say Obama doesn't deserve reelection in 2012 By Michael O'Brien - 02/16/10 01:35 PM ET 52 percent of Americans said President Barack Obama doesn't deserve reelection in 2012, according to a new poll. 44 percent of all Americans said they would vote to reelect the president in two and a half years, less than the slight majority who said they would prefer to elect someone else. Obama faces a 44-52 deficit among both all Americans and registered voters, according to a CNN/Opinion Research poll released Tuesday. Four percent had no opinion. The reelection numbers are slightly more...

  • Lawrence Solomon: Wikipedia’s climate doctor-Wikipedia’s green doctor rewrote 5,428 climate articles

    ... All told, Connolley created or rewrote 5,428 unique Wikipedia articles. His control over Wikipedia was greater still, however, through the role he obtained at Wikipedia as a website administrator, which allowed him to act with virtual impunity. When Connolley didn’t like the subject of a certain article, he removed it — more than 500 articles of various descriptions disappeared at his hand. When he disapproved of the arguments that others were making, he often had them barred — over 2,000 Wikipedia contributors who ran afoul of him found themselves blocked from making further contributions. Acolytes whose writing conformed to...

    So let us now turn our attention to an item in yesterday's Daily Times Herald in Carroll, Iowa entitled "Carroll woman's answer to highly visible Obama: Selling her televisions." A 78-year-old Carroll woman says she's so tired of seeing President Barack Obama on the airwaves that she's selling her television sets - two of them. Deloris Nissen, a retired nurses' aide and former Kmart employee who was raised on a farm near Audubon, placed a classified advertisement with The Daily Times Herald for Friday's paper. In the $5.50 ad, Nissen tells readers she has two television sets for sale. The...

    H.R. 1728 passed the House by an overwhelming majority in a record three days time. Now it’s in the Senate and is widely expected to pass quickly as well. Why the rush? Is AIG planning to hand out zillions in bonuses again? My guess would be that our elected representatives and their banking benefactors would prefer that we don’t know anything about it. Consider this scenario: You own a house. You want to sell it. Someone wants to buy it. You decide to sell it to the person who wants to buy it and carry the paper yourself for whatever...

I also saw my friends from my local Catholic parish, Dr. Pxxx and Lxx Sxxxxxx and their four kids. Overall, the "party" was very well attended (probably 700 to 850 people), "We the People" were very civil and well-behaved, and our signs were for the most part hand-made, and...
  • Barack Hussein Obama is a committed Marxist -- what are Americans going to do about it?

    On Nov. 5, 2008, Americans woke up to a very real Marxist coup — although most didn't realize it. I sat down and cried while a huge crowd gathered and were cheering. I intuitively knew something was very wrong. After watching Barack Hussein Obama aggressively pursue his agenda as president, I now understand why. Most Marxist coups rely on deception — and that was certainly true of this one. Just about everything Obama said during the campaign was a calculated lie. His handlers and key supporters were equally willing to lie and deceive to gain advantage. Once Marxists seize power...
