    The White House President Geroge W. Bush ^ | June 19, 2008 | Office of the Press Secretary
    Three decades ago, a mysterious and terrifying plague began to take the lives of people across the world. Before this malady even had a name, it had a fierce opponent in Dr. Anthony Fauci. As the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases for more than 23 years, Tony Fauci has led the fight against HIV and AIDS. He was also a leading architect and champion of the Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, which over the past five years has reached millions of people -- preventing HIV infections in infants and easing suffering and bringing dying communities...

    Looks can be profoundly deceiving. At first glance, Tracy "Trace" Sargent could easily be a high-powered corporate CEO or lead a marketing firm. This petite Georgia blond with a commanding presence and the charisma and intellect to match, looks like she would fit elegantly at the head of a boardroom. You certainly don't envision this refined, vibrant woman with a sweet Southern drawl to be out enthusiastically hunting lost persons, getting dirty, crawling through rubble, or chasing down fugitives by moonlight. Yet that is exactly what she has been doing with her K9 partners for over 20 years, gracefully shattering...

    Recently, I was elected treasurer of my local SAR chapter, the older male equivalent of the far better known Daughters of the American Revolution.Thus, I was appalled to learn what a partly rate of interest our existing bank paid on a recently matured CD (0.06%!) and refused to renew it, asking them to deposit it into our checking account instead.Accordingly, I am now actually shopping for another bank our credit union willing to offer a fine, patriotic organization such as our better rates and service. My retirement money, for example, is with Charles Schwab, where I can earn 2.3% (annualized)...

    CLEMENTE: “No, there is a way. We certainly have ways in national security investigations to find out exactly what was said in that conversation. It’s not necessarily something that the FBI is going to want to present in court, but it may help lead the investigation and/or lead to questioning of her. We certainly can find that out.

    I have received many emails and have heard much talk about the U.S. breaking into two countries ‐ one Constitutional Republic built on a foundation of Judeo-Christian principles consisting of the Mountain, Central and Southern states (essentially a Second American Republic), and a Marxist‐Socialist‐Atheist confederation consisting of the Pacific Coast states, the Upper Midwest (IL, MI, WI) and the New England states. While it is sorely tempting to think about drop‐kicking the liberal states and going our separate ways, the reality is that this would be a MASSIVE mistake, and would almost certainly set in motion a chain of events...

    I live within the New Madrid fault zone, so when a "big one" hits we here in Southern Illinois pay close attention to the news. We all know that what we're watching could someday be us. The city of Christchurch, New Zealand, was hit on Feb. 22 by a 6.3-magnitude earthquake that was a deadly aftershock of an even larger quake that shook the country last September. Forces combined with the location of the epicenter of the quake, the terrain and the time of day to lay devastation and death upon the city...

    The next time you do your banking, be sure you don't do anything out of the ordinary. If you do, you may end up caught in the crosshairs of a government program designed to target terrorists and money launderers. According to critics, innocent American bank customers who are doing nothing more than conducting their honest financial transactions are being vicitimized by Suspicious Activity Reports, or SARs. A SAR is a secret filing, triggered by any financial activity the government deems unusual. Specifically, any group of transactions totaling $5,000 or more that "is not the sort in which the particular customer...

    Helicopter technology is coming to a point of near perfection. But the current generation of Helicopters do not have the speed (300 mph vs 200 mph) and cargo capability of the V-22 Osprey. SAR is Search and Rescue. Speed and cargo capacity can mean the difference between life and death. The V-22 could contain an emergency medical facility plus arrive at the scene 50% faster than a heliocopter. Let us assume there is an emergency 120 miles from the position of a helicopter and V-22 -- taking off at the same time. The V-22 will get there in 24 minutes....

    (CNN) -- One member of a U.S. special operations reconnaissance team missing in Afghanistan since Tuesday has been rescued, a U.S. official speaking on condition of anonymity told CNN. The team member "evaded the enemy and was successfully rescued by U.S. forces," the official said. No other details are being released because the search for other missing members of the team continues, the official said. A military helicopter crashed Tuesday while bringing reinforcements to the team, killing all 16 service members aboard. The U.S. military believes the chopper was downed by a rocket-propelled grenade. It is the worst single-day death...
