    The Wall Street Journal reports today that Rep. Solomon Ortiz has been contacted by House investigators who are looking into the use of overseas travel stipends, according to lawmakers who were also contacted. This follows the newspaper's reporting in March that stipends had been used for unauthorized purposes, and that some lawmakers were apparently ignorant of the rules governing use of the money. Congressional rules say the daily travel funds, called a per diem, must be spent on meals, cabs and other travel expenses. But when lawmakers travel, many of their meals and expenses are picked up by other people,...

    Today, the New York Times provided a report that confirms what a lot of people have suspected. Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz were among the 104 major league players listed as having tested positive for performance-enhancing substances in 2003, lawyers with knowledge of the results told The New York Times. The two were key members of the Boston Red Sox World Series championship teams in 2004 and 2007. The lawyers did not name the substances Ramirez and Ortiz tested positive for, The Times reported.

    Boston's erstwhile slugging duo reportedly on list of 104 According to lawyers who spoke to the The New York Times, and whose names were not revealed, David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez are on the list of 104 players who tested positive in Major League Baseball's 2003 survey testing for performance-enhancing drugs, testing that was agreed to and conducted only on the condition that the results would remain anonymous. Ortiz and Ramirez were members of the Boston Red Sox at the time and helped the club end an 86-year streak in which they hadn't won a World Series. Results from the...

    PORTLAND, Maine — Poor John McCain. Tonight was supposed to be republican presidential hopeful's night in southern Maine. A chance to make a blue state — Maine has voted for a democrat for president in the last four elections — a red one. But Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz, among a handful of the most popular human beings who reside in New England, needed to get some at-bats about five miles to the north at Hadlock Field, home of the Red Sox Double-A affiliate Portland Sea Dogs. And with Ortiz followed all of the local sportscasters, news anchors and...

    Congressman Tancredo (R-Colorado) joined Congressman Ortiz in Brownsville on Tuesday for a joint committee meeting regarding the proposed fence building to attempt to curb illegal immigration (amongst other things) in the area. Not surprisingly, Tancredo was met with a rather cold reception with his known favoritism towards building the fence. “It really isn’t a border to most of us who live down here” said Betty Perez local activist. No need to guess which side she’s advocating. Now, on the not so stereo-typical side, you’ve got me to give you some insight into uber minority: the endangered Republican Female Mexican American...

  • Man held in wife's strangling

    NEW YORK, March 19 (UPI) -- A New York City man is being held for allegedly strangling his 28-year-old wife, who was found dead in her bed by police. Segundo Aurelio Ortiz, 36, was arrested and charges are pending, the police said. Maria Graciella Calle, the mother of two, was found dead in her apartment Friday after her uncle broke down the door because she did not show up at work at a bakery, The New York Daily News reported Sunday. "He was a controlling guy," said the victim's brother, Carlos Cardenas. "He wouldn't let her go out. My sister...

    Like the exploits of 21st-century special operators – including U.S. Navy SEALs, Army Delta soldiers, Force Recon Marines, Air Force commandos, and CIA paramilitary operatives – stories of men like Ortiz are rarely gleaned from books, newspapers, and magazines. Their incredibly dangerous work often goes unseen and is thankless.
  • California's stem cell debacle

    06/07/2005 8:13:47 AM PDT · by thebiggestdog · 157+ views ^ | June 7, 2005 |
    In the elections last November, Californians overwhelmingly voted to spend over three billion dollars of taxpayer money for stem cell research. Celebrities came pouring out of the woodwork, (and the Betty Ford Center) to praise the initiative, and pump up the minions with unfounded claims about the potential for stem cell research. Christopher Reeves name was thrown out more than a few times, even though almost every doctor admitted that it would be extremely doubtful that stem cells could have prolonged his life. Reeves, and other people with debilitating illnesses like childhood Diabetes, MS, and Alzheimers may someday be helped...

    Congressman Solomon Ortiz of Texas testified this week during a House hearing on border security saying our southern border is under siege. Congressman Ortiz is co-chair of the House Border Caucus. ORTIZ: I am very dismayed, very discouraged, because we were led to believe that they were going to fund the recommendations given by the 9/11 commission. Now, they came up with 210 border patrol people, that doesn't even cover attrition rates in one border patrol sector. DOBBS: And you before your committee pointed out Admiral Loy's concerns about border security, specifically the threat of terrorism, al Qaeda linking up...
