    Secretary of State John Kerry spoke to his Iranian counterpart, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, at least five times Tuesday while U.S. Navy sailors were in Iranian custody, a senior State Department official told reporters Wednesday. In the course of his conversations, the official said Kerry told Zarif: "If we are able to do this the right way, we can make this into what will be a good story for both of us" and would be a way for Iran to prove it can act in a responsible manner in this type of situation. The calls, which took place over...

    Hot off the heels of releasing a guide on how to properly handle sex slaves, the Islamic State (ISIS) has begun distributing a handbook titled Sister’s Role in Jihad, designed to teach women how to properly indoctrinate their children to fully commit to the cause of jihadist terrorism. The guide, discovered and translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), instructs jihadist mothers to start young, lest the child grow older and less susceptible to a full commitment to the Islamic State. The guide specifically calls for teaching children the importance of waging jihad “while they are babies” because...
  • Big Fish Stories Getting Littler {Then and now WOW}

    For generations, tour boats have been collecting fishing enthusiasts in Key West, Fla.: taking them for a day of deep sea casting; providing them rods, bait, companionship; and then, when the day ends, there's a little wharf-side ceremony. Everyone is invited to take his biggest fish and hook it onto the "Hanging Board"; a judge compares catches, chooses a champion, and then the family that caught the biggest fish poses for a photograph. The one up above comes from 1958. Notice that the fish on the far left is bigger than the guy who, I assume, caught it; and...
  • Bill Clinton: Obamacare Will 'Empower People to Have Better Life Stories'

    Bill Clinton: Obamacare Will 'Empower People to Have Better Life Stories' September 4, 2013 - 12:42 PM By Susan Jones ( - Former President Bill Clinton said Wednesday that the role of government is to “empower people to have better life stories” by working with the private sector, NGOs, and citizens, and Obamacare helps achieve that goal. "I have believed all my life that the role of government was to work with the private sector and non-governmental groups and communities and ordinary citizens, essentially to empower people to have better life stories. And that's what this whole issue is about,"...

    Alliance, Nebraska Newspaper Jobs Right after getting my bachelor’s degree a friend of mine found a job for me in beautiful Alliance, Nebraska. It was selling advertising for the local newspaper, which basically revolved around walking around town and talking the local merchants into buying advertising in the newspaper. Alliance was at that time, a pretty boring town. Most of the railroad workers spent their waking spare time in one of the bars, like “Wonderbar” or “The Iron Horse”. There was also a combination bowling alley, strip joint bar. You just walked through a door from the bowling alley and...

    That's what he says has been his greatest problem as our President. Therefore, it must be true.President Obama's plight is a sad one, because he has done an historic and truly remarkable job in every other respect. Due to my post-partisan concern for his continued success, I have thought long and hard about this, his greatest problem, and have tried to help him. It is now clear that he has simply had story-tellers' cramp and that he needs only more stories as models for his own. Here's one that should help. It's a story I heard in Venezuela from a...

    SALT LAKE CITY -- Two members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints running for President. A hit Broadway musical called "The Book of Mormon." Mormons have held the spotlight this year. But across our state milestones have been marked for many faiths that make up the religious background of Utah. From politics to arts, many throughout the country dub this "The year of the Mormons." Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney was on the cover of Newsweek in June, his head atop the body of a dancing missionary actor from "The Book of Mormon" Broadway musical, which won...

    As NewsBusters reported Monday, the broadcast network news outlets of ABC, CBS and NBC ran a total of 84 stories on the sexual harassment allegations against Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain in the week following Politico publishing its hit piece. That is more coverage than they gave to Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama's connections to domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, convicted real estate developer Tony Rezko, or America-hating Rev. Jeremiah Wright throughout the entire campaign. According to LexisNexis, from February 2007 when Obama announced his candidacy to Election Day 2008, ABC ran 20 stories on Ayers, CBS did thirteen, and NBC...
  • Rick Perry is not much different than Lyndon B. Johnson.

    I guess I don't have a heart by posting this, eh ? Mark my words, this guy is not a conservative. He did more to defend the legacy of Lyndon B. Johnson last night than promote Goldwater-Reagan conservatism. When my mom was born in the 1960s, the United States had been enjoying a time of great economic prosperity under the leadership of John Kennedy and Dwight Eisenhower. A tragedy in Dallas left the country into the hands of Texan who may have been a good dad to his daughters, but he was a nightmare that is still haunting the USA....

    The State of Texas has set up a website to collect and post the stories real victims of Barack Obama’s non-enforcement of border policies have to tell. The stories these real Americans tell need to be heard and acted on if we are ever to gain control of our southern border. Here are some of the witness accounts posted on the site: “[W]e do have lots of drugs and humans crossing the ranch and we did feel that our lives were in danger. On several occasions, we had illegal immigrants trying to break into our house. I had to hold...
  • The 10 Biggest 'Non-Story' Stories of 2010 (What the media should have reported but did not)

    American Thinker ^ | 01/03/2011 | George Scaggs
    No doubt, 2010 was a historic year. While it's not unusual for Big Media's undeniable bias to lead them to miss, if not intentionally ignore, certain stories, in terms of volume, 2010 seems to have offered a banner crop. Granted, no single story in 2010 compares to the biggie they missed in 2009: the ascendancy of the "Tea Party" movement. After the better part of a year, the mainstream press finally caught up in 2010. Oh, sure, they're still miscasting and criticizing the phenomenon, but they no longer deny its existence or impact. The delightful irony in Big Media's year-long...

    Top 6 most covered Tea Party news stories of the yearAlex Pappas--the Daily Caller Tue Dec 28, 1:26 am ET Tea Party activists often say the media ignored them when the movement burst onto the political scene in 2009. They can’t say the same thing about 2010. Thousands of articles were written over the last 12 months about Tea Party activists, whether it had to do with Scott Brown’s election to the Senate, President Obama’s health-care bill or the year’s midterm elections. As we look back on those articles, here’s our list of the top 6 of the most covered...
  • True stories of bloggers who secretly feed on partisan cash

    daily caller ^ | 8/23/10 | Jonathan Strong
    Katie Couric once described bloggers as journalists who gnaw at new information “like piranhas in a pool.” But increasingly, many bloggers are also secretly feeding on cash from political campaigns, in a form of partisan payola that erases the line between journalism and paid endorsement. “It’s standard operating procedure” to pay bloggers for favorable coverage, says one Republican campaign operative. A GOP blogger-for-hire estimates that “at least half the bloggers that are out there” on the Republican side “are getting remuneration in some way beyond ad sales.”

    It was the moment of greatest peril for then-Sen. Barack Obama’s political career. In the heat of the presidential campaign, videos surfaced of Obama’s pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, angrily denouncing whites, the U.S. government and America itself. Obama had once bragged of his closeness to Wright. Now the black nationalist preacher’s rhetoric was threatening to torpedo Obama’s campaign. The crisis reached a howling pitch in mid-April, 2008, at an ABC News debate moderated by Charlie Gibson and George Stephanopoulos. Gibson asked Obama why it had taken him so long – nearly a year since Wright’s remarks became public –...
