Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) has told the Associated Press that he will not seek reelection in 2014. “It’s just time to step aside,” Harkin, 73, told AP, noting that he would be 81 be the end of another term. Harkin’s decision makes him the third senator up for reelection this cycle to announce his retirement. Sens. Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.) and Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) have both announced they will not seek another term. Harkin is in his fifth term and has become one of the most outspoken liberals in the Senate in recent years. Over the past few weeks,

Others are flying in from Seattle, San Francisco and even Alaska. They will gather Saturday at the Capitol Reflecting Pool at 10 a.m. and will begin marching down Constitution Avenue toward the Washington Monument at 11 a.m.

SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco city officials preparing for the 49ers’ Super Bowl game against the Baltimore Ravens are hoping to avoid a repeat of the violence and vandalism that marred World Series celebrations last year. A total of 36 people were arrested during post-game celebrations in October after the San Francisco Giants’ World Series victory against the Detroit Tigers, 23 of them for felonies. Celebrants lit a number of bonfires in the middle of Mission Street, broke windows and, in one notorious incident, set a Muni 8X-Bayshore Express bus on fire at Market and Kearny streets.



Apes, Pigs, and F-16s

When Mohamed Morsi dehumanizes Jews as “the descendants of apes and pigs,” there’s an elephant in the room. We find it here: Those who incurred the curse of Allah and His wrath, those of whom some He transformed into apes and swine, those who worshipped evil — these are many times worse in rank, and far more astray from the even Path! You see, Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood mahoff–turned–president did not conjure up the apes-and-pigs riff on his own. When Morsi fulminates that Muslims “must not forget to nurse our children

Looks like it´s back to guns again this weekend. Any time California´s Sen. Dianne Feinstein shows up on two shows, that´s the giveaway. With a grab-me dose of "Women in Combat!" That´s the latest issue President Obama has churned up to keep Americans divided and arguing and not noticing what the Chicagoan is not doing about the economy and his numerous promises. It´s strictly a PC call by the Democrat.

The statement referred to the death of Mr Swartz, an internet activist who apparently killed himself in January.[Snip]"Two weeks ago today, Aaron Swartz was killed.

Islamic clothing is getting a bit more hip in Southern California. Home to one of the largest Muslim communities in the nation, the Southland has become fertile ground for a new generation of designers crafting clothes for women who are limited by faith and conviction from flashing too much skin. Although Muslim women have been dressing fashionably for years, many in the U.S. say they still face tricky challenges when getting dressed — and especially dressed up. "We are Muslim and we can still express ourselves, be fashionable, as long as we do it in a halal way"



Fetuses not people, Canon City
Catholic hospital says in court
USA Today, by Staff    Original Article

CANON CITY- A Catholic hospital in Canon City has argued in court documents that it is not liable for the deaths of two 7-month-old fetuses because those fetuses are not people. So far, courts have side with the hospital. But that defense contradicts church teaching that human life is sacred from the moment of conception. At least one prominent abortion foe called the hospital´s claims morally untenable. The issue of whether a fetus is a person was raised in a lawsuit filed by Jeremy Stodghill, whose 31-year-old wife, Lori, died in 2006 at St. Thomas More Hospital in Canon City.

Actor Burt Reynolds is in intensive care in a Florida hospital, where he went for treatment of flu symptoms, one of his representatives said Friday. Reynolds was dehydrated when he went to the hospital, and was eventually transferred to its intensive care unit, his representative Erik Kritzer told CNN. Kritzer declined to divulge what hospital the actor was in, saying, "He would like that (kept) private." "He is doing better at this time," Kritzer said late Friday afternoon of the 76-year-old actor. "We expect, as soon as he gets more fluids, he will be back in a regular room."

Cairo -- Egypt exploded in turmoil this weekend with at least 22 people killed in clashes over an unpopular court verdict Saturday following a day of politically charged violence throughout the country. The clashes in the northeastern city of Port Said came after a judge sentenced 21 people to death for their roles in a football game riot last year. Angry relatives of those convicted clashed with security forces outside the prison, leaving nearly two dozen people killed and more than 200 wounded, the Health Ministry said. Two police officers were among the dead, the head of Port Said

Hi, I’m Senator John Thune from the great state of South Dakota. With the recently passed fiscal cliff legislation, Congress enacted tax relief for 99 percent of Americans. Now that the tax part of the fiscal cliff issue has been dealt with, it’s time to address the real cause of Washington’s fiscal mess— out-of-control spending. Washington is addicted to spending your money.

WASHINGTON — Michelle Obama has a new look, both in person and online, and with the president´s re-election, she has four more years as first lady, too. That´s got many people wondering: What will she do with them? Take on a new cause? Travel more? Trace the path of another first lady and keep the Obama political brand alive by running for office? The answers are to be determined. The first lady is trying to figure out what comes next for this self-described "mom in chief" who also is a champion of healthier eating, an advocate for military families

Killing the American Dream

President Obama won re-election on the premise that he is defending the middle class. But that very assertion assumes, firstly, that the middle class needs "defending" and, secondly, that it is the function of government to defend it. Both assumptions are wrong. Basic to Obama´s thinking is the idea that the American middle class is endangered, and endangered not by government, but by capitalism. That belief has profound implications for all of society. It suggests, for example, that one´s individual efforts are futile. As the left sees, if an individual does succeed,

DENVER- A political generation ago, the West signaled the nation´s rightward swing - from the emergence of Ronald Reagan to the success of tax-limitation ballot measures in California and Colorado. But now the fabled expanse of jagged peaks, arid deserts and emerald coastlines is trending in a different direction. From Washington state - where voters in November legalized marijuana and upheld the legality of gay marriage - to New Mexico, once a hotly contested swing state that Republicans ceded to Democrats in the presidential campaign, the West has become largely Democratic terrain. There are, as always, exceptions.

Hi, everybody. Here in America, we know the free market is the greatest force for economic progress the world has ever known. But we also know the free market works best for everyone when we have smart, commonsense rules in place to prevent irresponsible behavior. That’s why we passed tough reforms to protect consumers and our financial system from the kind of abuse that nearly brought our economy to its knees. And that’s why we’ve taken steps to end taxpayer-funded bailouts.

Fox News offered Sarah Palin a new contract before she decided to part ways with the network where she has held forth as a commentator for the last three years.However, it would be hard to describe it as a generous contract.Palin was a hot property when Roger Ailes landed her in 2009, fresh off her colorful run for vice president, and paid her an annual salary of $1 million. Fox even built Palin a studio at her Wasilla home.But relations cooled between the two sides, and Palin was appearing on Fox less often—complaining on Facebook one night

Wealth in Washington, DC has surged to the highest median income in the United States, surpassing even tech mecca Silicon Valley, California. With a median household income of $119,134, the Census Bureau reports that Loudoun County, Virginia now occupies the number one spot for the highest median U.S. income. The number two position belongs to Fairfax County, Virginia at $105,797. Arlington, Virginia comes in third at $100,735. In fact, seven of the ten counties with the highest household incomes are in the Washington region. These and other eye-opening facts are evidence of a new Washington “aristocracy”

Four days after President Obama was sworn in for his second term, another large crowd hit Washington — pro-lifers who came by the busload to mark the 40th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade, which overturned two centuries of law and prohibited the states from banning most abortions. Each year at this time, this growing band of optimistic Americans marches in Washington, since that’s where the Supreme Court sits. But they might consider marching in New York next year. For America’s biggest city is also America’s abortion capital.

In his first term, President Obama passed two of the most sweeping expansions of federal power in history. (Snip) The second , his federal takeover of the financial system, may not fare as well. That law, Dodd-Frank, is being challenged in State National Bank of Big Spring v. Geithner. The lead plaintiff is a community bank that has had several of its business lines shut down by Dodd-Frank. Co-plaintiffs include the libertarian powerhouse the Competitive Enterprise Institute, the leading conservative seniors group the 60 Plus Association, and the states of South Carolina, Oklahoma, and Michigan.

For a dozen years, Paul Ryan and Mike Pence were Republican colleagues in the House of Representatives and fellow soldiers in the conservative movement. Last week, they parted ways: one toward temperance, the other toward extremism.Pence chose the sensible path. Elected governor of Indiana in November, he delivered his first State of the State speech Tuesday, describing his proposed budget that, though a fiscally conservative plan, increases funds for education, job training, transportation, veterans, child-protective services, and health care for the poor. (Snip)Contrast that with Ryan, the former vice presidential candidate, who, on the same day


Dangerous Times: Gimme a
General Who Won´t Fight!

It was Lincoln who said "Give me a general who will fight!" That was after the North was defeated over and over again by Robert E. Lee´s smaller and more agile armies. Lincoln´s first generals fought desperately hard, but not hard enough to win. In the upshot, the Civil War dragged out to became our bloodiest war ever, 600,000 dead -- mostly white folks. And yes, it was triggered by Christian Abolitionists who made slavery morally intolerable to half the nation. Lincoln was therefore forced to find generals who would fight, and he found Sherman and Grant, who wreaked terrible destruction

The coming collapse

Forty years after Roe v. Wade, a powerful shift is taking place within Big Abortion. What abortion advocates could not win through choice, they intend to impose through coercion. Even Time magazine recently acknowledged on their cover that, for those so inclined to celebrate Roe’s anniversary, the rejoicing over abortion on demand should be tinged with concern. On January 14th Time asked “What Choice?” and then answered their own question: “40 years ago, abortion rights activists won an epic victory with Roe v. Wade,” the cover noted and then concluded: “They’ve been losing ever since.”

A reader emailed earlier today to say that he and his wife recently moved to Washington State. His wife is a Canadian citizen who has a green card. Much to their surprise, she received in the mail a voter registration card issued by the county in which they live, informing her that “You are registered to vote.” Our reader writes: My wife is a Canadian citizen, has her green card, and just received her voter registration card in the mail. Not sure what’s up with that, she did not do anything to actively register to vote.

Fresh off re-election victories, President Barack Obama and his campaign-trail machine show no signs of slowing down. At all. On Jan. 18, Obama for America (later, Organizing for America) became Organizing for Action; on Jan. 24, the campaign’s former national field director, Jeremy Bird, launched the party’s plan to turn Texas into a battleground; and in the coming weeks, if successful, the president’s Department of Justice will begin the process of turning Louisiana blue. Just how would they go about doing that? Simple, really: The first step toward winning a state in the modern age
