    Disgraced former President Victor Yanukovych called for urgent action to resolve the ongoing separatist violence in eastern Ukraine in a statement from Rostov-on-Don on April 21. Yanukovych requested the “immediate removal of all Ukrainian Armed Forces from the east of Ukraine, sent there as a detachment of the so-called ‘national guard,’ dressed in military uniforms and armed with automatic weapons and grenades.” Yanukovych, who fled Ukraine on February 22 after being accused of ordering riot police to fire on activists demanding his removal from power, called for “the immediate commencement of peaceful dialogue with the leaders of the eastern regions.”

    The infighting has been particularly vexing for McCain, who took to the Senate floor Thursday, after senators had wrapped up their votes for the week, with an impassioned screed against his colleagues who are planning to vote against the aid package over the IMF provision. "You can call yourselves Republicans," McCain continued. "That's fine, because that's your voter registration. Don't call yourself Reagan Republicans. Ronald Reagan would never—would never—let this kind of aggression go unresponded to by the American people." snip McCain was later joined on the floor for a lengthy, heated exchange among several of his GOP colleagues, including...

    On Wednesday night, Egyptian television viewers were treated to the sight of a grown man live-debating a puppet. The doll in question – Abla Fahita – is the star of a new Vodafone commercial, and one of Egypt’s most recently accused spies. The commercial shows Ms. Fahita and her cloth-eared daughter as they search for the SIM card of a deceased relative. As Fahita chats away on her mobile, a radio anchor explains how to make "stuffed turkey" for Christmas. Vodafone officials have been questioned over accusations that the ad conveys a secret message to the Muslim Brotherhood, a movement...

    Washington Times ^ | 10/13/13 | By Stephen Dinan
    Immigrant-rights activists say New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie reversed himself Saturday and endorsed giving illegal immigrants in-state college tuition rates, and said he will try to get the issue through his legislature in a lame-duck session. Mr. Christie, who is up for re-election in November, is also seen as eyeing a bid for the GOP’s 2016 presidential nomination, but his support for in-state tuition could complicate that. “We need tuition equality for everyone in New Jersey,” the activists said the governor said in a speech to the Latino Leadership Alliance of New Jersey. Afterward, the activists said, Mr. Christie told...
  • Mark Levin Warns: Obama is Planning to Raise the Debt Limit Unilaterally

    (I'm paraphrasing, so I highly recommend listening to the podcast, beginning about half-way through.) In his 10/3/13 broadcast, Mark warns that, based upon Obama's inflammatory rhetoric regarding the debt ceiling, and the supposedly impending "default" on our debt, that Obama plans on acting unilaterally to over-spend the debt limit. Mark correlates a couple of facts. The first is that Obama is harping on "default." Most pundits are reading this as a means of "talking down" the economy, in order to blame the "Republican shutdown" for a weakening economy. But Mark believes that Obama is laying the groundwork for overspending the...

He’s playing with a few of his usual group of junior staffers - Mike Brush, Marvin Nicholson, and Joe Paulsen.

McCain stated that “we were probably too optimistic” about race relations in the aftermath of the election of the country’s first black president. “I think old prejudices die hard,” McCain said. ‘We have made significant progress, but I...

    Leading liberal Egyptian politician Mohamed ElBaradei has been named interim prime minister. He was appointed following crisis talks led by President Adly Mahmud Mansour - three days after the army removed Islamist leader Mohammed Morsi amid growing nationwide unrest. The move has in turn triggered mass unrest by supporters of Mr Morsi. Mr ElBaradei - a former head of the UN's nuclear watchdog - is expected to be sworn in later on Saturday. He and other party leaders attended a meeting called by Mr Mansour on Saturday. Mr ElBaradei leads an alliance of liberal and left-wing parties, the National Salvation...

    The White House is poised to release a cybersecurity executive order on Wednesday, two people familiar with the matter told The Hill. The highly anticipated directive from President Obama is expected to be released at an event Wednesday morning at the U.S. Department of Commerce, where senior administration officials will provide an update about cybersecurity policy. The White House began crafting the executive order after Congress failed to pass cybersecurity legislation last year. Officials said the threat facing the United States was too great for the administration to ignore.

"Complete the danged fence," McCain cracked in a widely publicized television spot. Less well known is the equally dramatic pivot by Marco Rubio, from 2010 candidate who dismissed McCain’s proposal as “amnesty,” to U.S. senator who on Monday championed reforms McCain said had “very little difference” from his previous plan, which became the blueprint for failed legislation in 2006 and 2007.

    RealClearPolitics has compiled a series of little previews of the First Couple’s interview with Barbara Walters, set to air on 20/20 tonight. Every clip is notable in its own way, but this wins the award for most candid. The president — who has alternately inspired, disappointed, reignited and flamed out — admits that, deep down, he’s a little bit lazy. He thinks it stems from growing up in Hawaii, where it’s always sunny and folks sit on the beach for sport, he said. Makes you think Obama’s constant accusations that Congress does nothing might actually be transparent projections of his...

Tigner’s childlike voice won her a recording contract with Cornerstone Records, who in 1964 released “Happy Day Express: Sing With Marcy.” Before that, she had put out two trombone records.Tigner’s involvement in the film “Teenage Diary” led to her friendship with ventriloquist and actress Vonda Van Dyke, who encouraged Tigner to study ventriloquism. She was more comfortable performing live in her childlike voice, and with...

Today Rupert Murdoch was "grilled" by the Leveson Inquiry on his relationship with British politicians, a key question thrown up by the phone hacking scandal at his now-defunct News of the World tabloid. Revelations of widespread illegal behavior at the top-selling Sunday newspaper rocked Britain's establishment with evidence of media misdeeds, police corruption, and too-cozy links between the press and politicians. Buffeted by the scandal, Cameron called for a public inquiry into media ethics, a move some observers said had angered Murdoch and prompted him to...

The sacrifice of Vladislav Surkov, branded the Kremlin's 'puppet master' by enemies and friends alike, is also a rare admission of failure for Russia's 'alpha dog' leader: Surkov's system was Putin's system. With irony worthy of Surkov's cynical novels, the Kremlin's 47-year-old...

We first learned of this controversy reading Sher Zieve who wrote in the Canada Free Press: "Obama is doing the bare minimum so that destruction will be at an all-time maximum...

    Of the many unflattering caricatures of Sarah Palin that litter the political landscape, the notion that she is a dummy or a puppet -- a mere figure for manipulation by a superior brain -- is probably the most prevalent. She has even been given a mock "endorsement," bestowed in a YouTube video by the so-called Ventriloquist Dummies of America Association, for her supposed likeness to an inert object of play. So let's just say this at the top: Palin is not anyone's puppet. It is not true for her, just as it was not true for George W. Bush, Ronald...

    In the brief time that has passed since Barack Obama burst onto the world political stage, he has been viewed as many things by many people. By taking Tom Daschle's advice to "run before you have a record that they can use against you," he was able to present himself not as a candidate with a past, but as a concept with a future. His potential election was viewed as historic -- for some because of his proclaimed status as "the first black president of the United States," by others as the fulfillment, fifty years later, of the interrupted promise...

And anecdotal evidence gathered by him — and me in my sojourns around New York and New Jersey — suggest that Hiz Honor’s emotional trajectory is fairly representative of a growing disenchantment among Jews who voted for Obama. The “falling out of love,” the term Mayor Koch used in an August commentary where he began expressing doubts, has been gradual. First there was the handling...

Lamar account executive Jeff Moore says the company takes a conservative approach in Colorado Springs. The city is known for its political conservatism, and some conservative Christian groups have headquarters in the city.

    How many trillions has Obama decided to spend? Who blamed Bush for spending millions? Obama of course! So, Obama decided to spend trillions to fix the economy and search for Osama. Nice plan! He is doing a better job than Osama! I never knew there were so many incompetent people (white and black) that would vote for such a paper mache man. Obama spent the most in world history on his campaign and fooled 54% of American voters. I knew the schools in America were bad but gee weez! A strong voice, millions of dollars and a teleprompter go a...

    Much has been made of President Obama's recent about-face on tax increases for the middle class. Obama says he is now "an agnostic." What this really means is that he has no conviction, no plan, and no blueprint, and he will increase taxes as long as somebody else tells him to do it. Obama's admirers will point to his ambivalence as "cool and detached." "Deliberate and thoughtful" are like-minded badges describing a powerful intellect making an agonizing choice among equally unattractive alternatives. This has been Obama's style in dealing with Iran, terrorist captives, and economic recovery. Don't be fooled. For...

    Thanks to a stimulus windfall, the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) has new funds to support an eclectic array of projects and organizations, from the American Samoa Council on Arts, Culture and Humanities to puppeteers across the country. Last year Congress allocated $50 million of the $787 billion stimulus bill — designed to stave off a second Great Depression — to the National Endowment for the Arts. Congressional Republicans opposed, charging that the funds would essentially increase the NEA’s budget of $145 million by 34 percent. The NEA divided its stimulus money in two: $19.8 million was given to...

    In blogs, interviews and e-mails, "birthers" around the country are reporting surveillance and visits from the U.S. Secret Service, whose agents have questioned – or, as some report, intimidated – them over their insistence that Barack Obama prove his constitutional eligibility to serve as president. As WND reported, Stephen Pidgeon, an attorney for Washington state plaintiffs challenging Obama's eligibility, grew suspicious in March when his wife and coworkers reported being shadowed by police and three, black SUVs. "We are definitely under surveillance and it's coordinated with Homeland Security," Pidgeon alleged. In November, Dale Laudenslager, a member of the American Grand...

    Of all the most dangerous aspects of the constitutionally ineligible Obama usurping the office of the Presidency, the prospect of blackmail is one of the most frightening. When a person owes his job to a cover-up and election fraud, he will do anything to keep it. And remember, if it wasn’t for the fraud, he would not have been on the ballot, and we would not be facing this prospect of treason from within. In my view, Obama has now crossed that line definitively.... Under this scenario, the United States is dragged into one conflict after another, or the resources...

    It is interesting that the man who cast aside the US Constitution like a rag, and imposes his own laws without consent, has agreed to allow an international police authority to overrule the US government. Barack Obama signed an Executive Order giving express permission for Interpol to supersede the laws and police authorities of the USA. Some have seen this as heralding loss of sovereignty. The truth is, the USA already lost it when it voted for Obama. Before the election he promised to hand over sovereignty to the UN, and this will indeed occur if the people allow him...

    A Minneapolis puppet show is caught up in the controversy over how some of the billions in economic stimulus dollars have been spent. Some members of Congress targeted the Heart of the Beast Theater as an example of wasteful spending. The theater, located on East Lake Street for 37 years, received a $25,000 economic stimulus grant. Kathee Foran, executive director of the theater, said the grant for which the theater applied had to be tied to a specific job. Foran said the money was used to save the job of their community program director--who duties include booking shows outside the...

    I have been having a nagging feeling lately that something is not quite right about Barack Hussein Obama. No, more than what I have written about in the past, and I am not suggesting that there is something wrong with the man, per se. And I am not talking about the crazy, even dangerous, policies coming out of the White House. No, lately, I have been wondering if Barack Hussein Obama is, in fact, the person who is actually functioning as President of the United States I mean, there’s no doubt that he fills the position of POTUS but is...
