  • Koskinen and Lerner Accused in Criminal Conspiracy. (Misleading fake headline)

    If you do a web news search with the term "criminal conspiracy", the first hit shows Scott Walker's picture accompanied by a news story about the partisan attack on the Governor of Wisconsin. The fact that the case went nowhere and is completely FALSE is not displayed in the search results, therefore the end result is that the person reading it ASSUMES he is guilty of something and the liberal media has, in effect, successfully smeared their intended target. This is my attempt to fight back. It is my hope that when an LIV does a search of criminal...

    A day after he questioned President Obama’s decision to unwind a major tenet of the health-care law and said the nation’s capital might not go along, D.C. insurance commissioner William P. White was fired. White was called into a meeting Friday afternoon with one of Mayor Vincent C. Gray’s (D) top deputies and told that the mayor “wants to go in a different direction,” White told The Washington Post on Saturday. White said the mayoral deputy never said that he was being asked to leave because of his Thursday statement on health care. But he said the timing was hard...

    WASHINGTON (AP) Just two weeks after President Barack Obama saw his Democratic Party put up an unyielding front against Republicans, his coalition is showing signs of stress. From health care to spying to pending budget deals, many congressional Democrats are challenging the administration and pushing for measures that the White House has not embraced. Some Democrats are seeking to extend the enrollment period for new health care exchanges. Others want to place restraints on National Security Administration surveillance capabilities. Still others are standing tough against any budget deal that uses long-term reductions in major benefit programs to offset immediate...

Roughly three out of 10 registered Ohio voters live in Franklin, Hamilton and Cuyahoga counties.

    Voters in Venezuela have stopped President Hugo Chavez from obtaining the two-thirds majority the Socialist leader said he needed in the National Assembly to effortlessly pass what he calls critical reforms. According to incomplete returns released Monday, Chavez's United Socialist Party on Sunday won at least 94 of 165 seats, while his most ardent foes took 60. The rest of the votes had either not been determined or went to a small leftist party, Father

    Many voters in the eastern Nebraska city of Fremont supported a ban on hiring or renting property to illegal immigrants, according to preliminary results from Monday's special election. With votes from seven of 20 precincts counted, 58 percent of residents were supporting the measure the latest proposal in a series of immigration regulations taken up by communities around the country. Full results were not expected until later Monday night. The town has watched as its Hispanic population surged in the past two decades, largely due to the jobs available at the nearby Fremont Beef and Hormel meatpacking plants. The...

  • Brewer launches weak beer named 'Nanny State'

    The Telegraph ^ | 29 Sep 2009 | staff reporter
    A brewer criticised for making what it claimed is Britain's strongest beer has unveiled an ale with a 1.1 per cent alcohol content, which it has called Nanny State. BrewDog said it launched Nanny State in response to the outcry caused after launching Tokyo* with an 18.2 per cent alcohol content. In July health experts said a high-alcohol percentage can cause as much damage as drinking to excess. A 330ml bottle of Tokyo* contains six units of alcohol - twice the recommended daily limit. BrewDog, based in Fraserburgh, Aberdeenshire, said the stronger beer will help change the country's binge-drinking culture...

    Are the Clinton secret police back on patrol? It looks like they may be making a late campaign comeback. In a week-end column, Robert Novak alleged that agents of Hillary Clinton are spreading the word that she has scandalous information about Barack Obama, but decided not to use it. (How considerate of her!) Obama has come out swinging, accusing the Clinton campaign of trying to swift-boat him and demanding that Clinton either release the information or admit that there is none. The Clinton camp is shocked that anyone would ever think that it would use such tactics! Clinton campaign Communications...

    LONG: These are excerpts By Gary J. Schmitt, Reuel Marc Gerecht Posted: Thursday, November 1, 2007 EUROPEAN OUTLOOK,AEI Online, November 1, 2007 (snip) Two waves of terrorist attacks, the first in the mid-1980s and the second in the mid-1990s, have made France acutely aware of both state-supported Middle Eastern terrorism and freelance but organized Islamic extremists. The attacks in 1985 and 1986 were probably Iranian-inspired, carried out as payback for France's military and financial support of Saddam Hussein. The attacks in the 1990s, however, in part an outgrowth of the Algerian civil war, clearly revealed to French security officials that...

    ...Richard Nixon, amid a similar low ebb of popularity with Vietnam, gave a famous speech in 1969. This was the year after the Tet offensive, which caused Walter Cronkite's famous Hagel-like throwing in of the towel. In that speech Nixon described a "great silent majority" in America. The idea, of course, was that the daily media attention commanded by the antiwar movement was missing a class of Americans who sat home seething at the behavior of the protesters. Today, because of the Internet, no one has to seethe in silence, as wired activists in both parties proved in 2004's high-tech...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - To the uninformed, this weekend gathering here may have seemed like a church revival, full of zeal and fervor. But worshipping God was most decidedly not part of the agenda. The attendees of the "All Atheists Weekend" gathered to discuss what they call the rise of fundamentalism in the U.S. and the blurring of lines between church and state. Attendees also took time to view documentaries that question the historical accuracy of the Bible - and to hear lectures about the dangers of religious icons on public property and problems with President Bush's so-called "faith-based initiative,"...

    Collier County property rights advocates knew they had to do something. A convoy dubbed the Sawgrass Rebellion had set out for Naples, all the way from Oregon and Ohio, in a show of unity against Everglades restoration and a new Collier County growth plan. Plans to cap the road show with a big, celebrity-studded rally had fizzled. Into the breach stepped the Property Rights Action Committee. The group announced Friday that it plans to throw a block party Oct. 18 in Golden Gate Estates to welcome like-minded farmers and ranchers from the West and Midwest. The committee applied for a...
