  • Condoleezza Rice says Trump asking Ukraine to investigate Biden is 'out of bounds'

    Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who has largely remained silent on issues concerning President Donald Trump, said Monday that the President's efforts to get Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden were "out of bounds" and called the administration's shadow foreign policy in Ukraine "deeply troubling." "The call is murky, it is really murky. I don't like for the President of the United States to mention an American citizen for investigation to a foreign leader. I think that is out of bounds," Rice told CNN's Becky Anderson during a conference in Abu Dhabi, referring to Trump's July 25 phone call with...
  • This candidate isn't clowning around: SC clown running for Congress

    The State (Columbia SC) ^ | March 27, 2018 08:26 AM | Bristow Marchant
    This clown wants your vote for Congress. In this case, that isn’t a negative description. Steve Lough, a candidate for Congress in South Carolina’s 5th District, is a former professional clown for the Ringling Brothers circus. Lough is leaning into his unusual resume, appearing in clown makeup in a promotional photo and registering the domain name “They joke that the president and Congress are all clowns,” Lough said in announcing his candidacy. “Well, in my professional opinion, they are the worst clowns I’ve ever seen.” A Democrat, Lough says he wants to use his clowning to promote universal access...

    One of my ongoing political passions is the California US Senate race. For the greater part of my life, I have lived in a state languishing under two of the more liberal and/or worst US Senators in modern history. Dianne Feinstein, the senior senator by a few months, won her latest reelection by 30 points. She had deftly refused to debate her last opponent, arrogantly confiding to one reporter: “I’m running my own campaign.” Feinstein is barely tolerable compared to her ultra-liberal, retiring counterpart. Junior US Senator Barbara Boxer, a progressive figurehead, claimed that a “baby is a baby when...

    I want to like Ted Cruz. He has all the right views from Obamacare to taxes to amnesty to Federal spending. He’s a gifted speaker, his speech yesterday was given without a teleprompter. He appeared genuine, frankly it appeared as though he had written the speech himself. The left hates Cruz, which of course makes him all the more likable. John McCain has called him a wacko bird, which again makes Cruz more likable. Anyone who annoys McCain must be good. Lost in the euphoria conservatives are having over Cruz is an objective look at whether Cruz will actually make...

  • Colin Powell: ‘Elements’ in GOP ‘Demonize People Who Don’t Look Like the Way They’d Like’

    Appearing on MSNBC, former Secretary of State Colin Powell savaged the Republican Party of which he says he is still a member for catering to “elements” that are overtly hostile to people of other races or nationalities. Powell told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell that there are groups within the GOP who “demonize people who don’t look like the way they’d like them to look.” He added that, for this reason, he believes the GOP needs him more than the Democratic Party needs him. He said that even senior-level Republicans continue to make “statements about women” and “minorities” that make the party...

In the police report, an investigator said Smith stated "he kept the weapon in the vehicle for the carjackers. He stated that he had the gun with him on the day of the incident, but stated that he did not present it to the protestors." He "stated that everyone was lying on him in an attempt to get him into trouble."

    Remember the Powell doctrine? Elaborated by Colin Powell back in 1990, during his tenure as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, it consisted of a series of questions identifying the conditions that should be met before committing U.S. military forces to battle. The questions were: 1. Is a vital national security interest threatened? 2. Do we have a clear attainable objective? 3. Have the risks and costs been fully and frankly analyzed? 4. Have all other nonviolent policy means been fully exhausted? 5. Is there a plausible exit strategy to avoid endless entanglement? 6. Have the consequences of our...

    The tattoo on his face says, “Kill Whitey” in block letters, and cops say the gun he carried was loaded and unlicensed. But that didn’t stop Maruse Heath — head of the Philadelphia chapter of the New Black Panther Party — from claiming that he’s really all about charity and outreach as he was arraigned on a gun-possession charge in Manhattan last night. “It is my understanding that the New Black Panther Party is the functional equivalent of the KKK,” Assistant District Attorney Christopher Ryan countered as Heath, 41, was ordered held in lieu of $75,000 bail for getting busted...

Some of Hugo Chavez's totalitarian methods: ... protesters were kidnapped while returning from an anti- Chavez rally. They were blindfolded, tortured and shot execution-style. Some of the victims were witnesses of a previous pro-Chavez political killing... Chavez is cooperating with the dangerous Islamic fanatic regime...

    Cops shot a knife-wielding maniac dead on a packed Midtown street yesterday after several officers drew their weapons and chased him at gunpoint through Times Square. “Shoot me! Shoot me!” the armed madman shouted at a crowd of more than 20 cops, who had followed him for several blocks and blasted him with pepper spray before cornering him on Seventh Avenue near West 38th Street, according to witness Robert James. The furious 51-year-old finally lunged at the officers with his 11-inch butcher knife, leading two cops to blast him in the torso, groin and arms at about 3 p.m., police...

    On Saturday, Carbonite CEO David Friend released a statement on his company’s website declaring that Carbonite had decided to “withdraw” advertising from Rush Limbaugh’s radio show in the wake of his controversial remarks involving Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke because it will “ultimately contribute to a more civilized public discourse”: Even though Mr. Limbaugh has now issued an apology, we have nonetheless decided to withdraw our advertising from his show. We hope that our action, along with the other advertisers who have already withdrawn their ads, will ultimately contribute to a more civilized public discourse. However, it hasn’t done much...

    Hulk Hogan isn't buying into Obamamania anymore. The wrestling legend appeared on “Fox and Friends” on Thursday and explained why he’s no longer a fan of the president. “I was a big Obama supporter and kinda, like, believed everything he said he was gonna do,” said Hogan. "But now that nothing’s happened,” he said he's had a change of heart. Hogan also said he was bothered when Obama borrowed his theme song, “Real American,” to make his entrance at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner earlier this year. (While the song played, an image of Obama’s birth certificate flashed on screens...
  • Toby Keith weighs in on gay marriage, military

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Toby Keith says gay marriage doesn't bother him and trying to stop it wastes time and money. The country superstar tells "CMT Insider" airing Saturday on CMT that he doesn't see the reason behind getting into people's personal lives. He says refusing a marriage license to people because they are gay won't stop them from living together, so it accomplishes nothing. Keith also weighed in on the military's now-repealed "don't ask, don't tell" policy that banned gays serving openly in uniform. He says that anyone with the training and passion should have the right to defend...

    While many were celebrating his death, at least one person was not, using graffiti to honor Osama Bin Laden. The memorial to the slain terrorist was first reported by the Orange County Register. It was found early Monday along the 405 Freeway, just south of the Springdale exit in Westminster. The graffiti read, “R.I.P. Osama …Forever,” accompanied by an upside down American flag and the word, “un-American.” The message was removed Monday morning by Caltrans.
  • Do We Really Need Black History Month? In 2011 America, there’s no need for anything like it.

    To feel that something is tired in the idea of Black History Month isn’t, despite what one might hear from some quarters, racist. When Carter G. Woodson founded Negro History Week in 1926, he hoped that the need for such a celebration would gradually recede. For the week to morph into a month did not exactly bear out his wishes, and today, even black people brandish an array of objections to Black History Month. Actor Morgan Freeman wonders why the history of his people must be relegated to a single month. Others more recreationally inclined consider it suspicious that February...
