Post Date: 2010-12-12 14:01:51 by Skip Intro
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin began a tightly stage-managed visit to Haiti on Saturday in which she visited cholera clinics while avoiding crowds and the press. The 2008 vice presidential candidate was a guest of Rev. Franklin Graham, whose aid group works in the impoverished country. Haiti is facing a brutal cholera epidemic while struggling with an electoral crisis and reconstruction from the January earthquake. Palin, who traveled in part by helicopter, provided access on her tour solely to the U.S. cable network Fox News. Graham's organization, Samaritan's Purse, refused to discuss Palin's itinerary with other media and asked Haitian and ...

Post Date: 2010-12-12 13:38:21 by Skip Intro
NEW HAVEN, Conn. Christine O'Donnell's TV ad declaration "I'm not a witch" during her U.S. Senate campaign topped this year's best quotes, according to a Yale University librarian.

In the ad, O'Donnell was responding to reports of her revelations that she had dabbled in witchcraft years ago. "It was such a remarkable unconventional quote to be a part of the political discourse," Shapiro said. The quote by O'Donnell, a tea party favorite running in Delaware, tied for ...

Post Date: 2010-12-08 16:49:23 by WhiteSands
Computerworld - The main Web site of MasterCard was knocked offline today in a large distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack apparently launched in retaliation for the credit card company's decision this week to cut off services to WikiLeaks.

From the Fringe to the Mainstream How scandals of dubious validity or relevance end up attracting so much media attention. Orly Taitz is on the phone, peddling nonsense. "He cannot be considered a natural-born citizen," she says. "He has refused to provide his original birth certificate. It shows that he has a guilty mind, because he knows that if he did, it would not show him to be a valid citizen." Taitz, a lawyer and dentist in Orange County, California, is speaking about the president of the United States, Barack Obama. It's an old line, and Taitz has delivered it with conviction and enthusiasm again and again: Obama wasn't born in the U.S., ...

'Sarah Palin's Alaska' Ratings Plummet In Week 2
Post Date: 2010-11-23 12:59:10 by Skip Intro
"Sarah Palin's Alaska" set a TLC ratings record when it debuted to 5 million viewers last week, but the second episode showed a huge drop-off in viewership. Episode two of the Palin reality show averaged just 3 million viewers, down 40% from the previous week. Perhaps more troubling are the viewer demographics. The show averaged just 885,000 viewers in the advertiser-friendly 18-49 demo, and the median age of the show's viewer is a whopping 57 years old. According to The Live Feed's James Hibberd, that's 15 years older than TLC's median age of 42.

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) A military officer who heard from more than two dozen soldiers wounded during last year's deadly Fort Hood shooting rampage issued an initial recommendation Tuesday about whether an Army psychiatrist should stand trial in the attack. But the military is not releasing the report. Col. James Pohl, who oversaw the recent Article 32 hearing for Maj. Nidal Hasan, gave his report to another high-ranking Army official. If that officer believes that Hasan should be court-martialed, a commanding general still must make the final determination. Pohl's recommendation is not subject to public disclosure laws, Fort Hood officials said. Hasan's lead defense ...

Post Date: 2010-11-13 00:11:38 by Hondo68
Americans' view of Sarah Palin is more unfavorable now than at any time since she was the Republican vice presidential nominee. According to a poll released Friday, 52 percent now say they have an unfavorable view of the former Alaska governor, whose visibility remains high following her campaign efforts during the midterm election season.

Barack Obama: We Must Embrace Globalism And The Emerging One World Economy (NWO Bushbot)
Post Date: 2010-11-10 13:44:28 by Hondo68
Although it received very little coverage in the mainstream media, Barack Obama made some comments about globalism during his speech in Mumbai, India that were very eye-opening. As he was discussing the new realities of world trade in 2010, Obama warned against "those who see globalization as a threat" and he spoke of the "integrated world" in which we all now live. But is merging the entire globe into a one world economy, a one world financial system and a one world labor market really the best thing for the American people? For the past two decades, all U.S. presidents have been heralding the benefits of merging the American economy with the rest of the globe. George ...

A staffer for a congressional Democrat who came up short on Tuesday reports that a team of about five people stopped by their offices this morning to talk about payroll, benefits, writing a résumé, and so forth, with staffers who are now job hunting. But one of the staffers was described as a counselor to help with the emotional aspect of the loss and a section in the packet each staffer was given dealt with the stages of grief (for instance, Stage One being anger, and so on). It was like it was about death, the staffer said. It was bizarre. The staffer did say the portions about the benefits and résumé writing were ...
Tea Party Activity Leaves Some Republicans Bitter
Post Date: 2010-11-07 18:40:05 by Brian S
Tea party support helped elect Republicans nationally last week, but local members of both groups aren't sure whether they now want to build bridges or burn them. The GOP and the tea party share some principles -- particularly for smaller government, lower taxes and free markets. But the Hamilton County Republican Party chairwoman says the tea party is a clique of conservatives not willing to respect party procedures. "They've become exclusive and very elitist. Some of them are even cultish," Chairwoman Delores Vinson said. "About what they are good for is siphoning off votes from the Republicans." And Chattanooga Tea Party President Mark West says the local ...
Obama In India To Be Shielded From Monkeys (30ft towers, snipers, commandos)
Post Date: 2010-11-04 21:16:21 by Hondo68
President Barack Obama will undoubtedly employ top-notch security during his Indian travels this week, but there's one additional threat White House officials might not have previously considered -- New Dehli's infamous herds of stray monkeys. According to the Telegraph, Delhi's police force have opted to build 30-foot-tall towers not far from the exclusive ITC Mauriya Hotel, where the Obamas will be staying for two days, in order to shield the president and his wife from both potential terrorists and monkeys. The hotel's proximity to the capital's Ridge Forest means the menacing animals have relatively easy access. In addition to general daily mayhem, the ...

Obama's 60-mpg cars could cost up to $9,000 more (sophisticated gas-electric hybrid, O'mobiles)
Post Date: 2010-10-01 13:05:52 by Hondo68
Electric mini-ccars such as this Mitsubishi i-MiEV, due in the U.S. next year, might become commonplace if the federal government boosts the fuel-ecomp,y standard to 60 mpg in 2025, as advocates hope. Meeting that standard would mean that most cars would be advanced hybrids and battery electrics. Advocates and lobbyists say today the Obama administration will unveil a plan for fuel-economy standards on cars as high as 62 miles per gallon in 2025. Timing aside, the cost to you could be significant. The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), an advocacy group that favors the 60 mpg standard, says such a regulation would boost the price of a car an average $2,700 in today's dollars, ...

Claremont Institute Tells TPM O'Donnell's 2002 Resume Listed Oxford University One thing we know is true: Christine O'Donnell was a Lincoln Fellow at the Claremont Institute in 2002. The rest, as we've closely chronicled, is all a bit fuzzy. But TPM just spoke with a Claremont official who reviewed O'Donnell's 2002 application file. Ryan Williams, who oversees the Lincoln Fellowship program, told us that O'Donnell lists a certificate from Oxford University on her resume. "She did have a line about Oxford," he said as he looked at her file, which also included an essay and letters of recommendation. Williams told us the item on O'Donnell's ...
Educating Christine O'Donnell: LinkedIn-Gate, Lawsuits And Late Degrees Color Senate Hopeful's Resume

Educating Christine O'Donnell: LinkedIn-Gate, Lawsuits And Late Degrees Color Senate Hopeful's Resume Republican Christine O'Donnell is a perennial Senate candidate who seems to have enrolled in plenty of courses, certificate programs and think tank seminars to further her political ambitions. Her frequent television appearances have surfaced on perma-reel as she tries to win over Delaware voters, and now, so has her checkered educational history. It's all sort of cloudy, and without O'Donnell sitting down with the press to clarify things it's hard to know exactly what's real, what's exaggerated and what's all just a misunderstanding. So, after the ...

Another Christine O'Donnell embellishment: She misleadingly claims she studied at Oxford In another move that will raise further questions about Christine O'Donnell's embellishment of her education record, she claims she studied at the University of Oxford -- but a look at her actual record shows this is at best an exaggeration and at worst an outright falsehood. O'Donnell's LinkedIn bio page lists "University of Oxford" as one of the schools she attended, claiming she studied "Post Modernism in the New Millennium." But it turns out that was just a course conducted by an institution known as the Phoenix Institute, which merely rented space at ...
