CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. – Navy Cmdr. Valerie Overstreet wanted to start a family. But her job as a Navy pilot and the fact that she and her husband, also a naval officer, were stationed in different parts of the country made it complicated. So she decided to take advantage of a fledgling Navy program that allowed her to take a year off and return to duty without risking her career or future commands. Now, three years later, she´s got a 2-year-old daughter and a 9-month old son, she´s back at work at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., and

CNN Chief Jeff Zucker might not be very good at getting ratings for his Nielsens-challenged network, but he’s great at hurling insults. On Friday, Zucker tried to diminish both the Republican Party and Fox News by alleging that the GOP is being run out of Fox. RNC Chairman Reince Priebus was having none of it, firing back at Zucker to let him know that Fox News is not the GOP´s mouthpiece. "Hey Jeff Zucker, we´re the Republican Party and we speak for ourselves, pal," Priebus tweeted. "Have a great weekend." At a Television Critics Association event on Friday, Zucker alleged

Some of the world’s most famous people became such by challenging conventional wisdom. Who does not know the name Galileo? He was scorned as a heretic in his day. Or what American does not know of Jonas Salk, who developed a nonconventional process and saved the world from the dreaded polio disease. Now comes along a man challenging conventional wisdom. The subject is not as lofty as curing polio or defining the center of the universe, but it challenges an accepted orthodoxy that has been beaten into our brains for decades. Though campaign finance reform dates back to 1867 when Andrew

Hillary Clinton: Clock ‘turning

Politico, by Katie Glueck    Original Article

Hillary Clinton warns in a new book that the “clock is turning back” on women across America and offers a passionate argument for prioritizing the advancement of women and girls. Clinton, the former secretary of state and possible presidential contender, is one of a slew of high-profile contributors to a new report set to be released Sunday compiled by author and activist Maria Shriver and the liberal Center for American Progress. “[Fighting] to give women and girls a fighting chance isn’t just a nice thing to do,” Clinton writes in “The Shriver Report: A woman’s nation pushes back from the

Well, there is some sanity in this world, it would seem. A bill making its way through the Colorado legislature, if passed, would prelude food stamp recipients from withdrawing EBT cash inside pot dispensaries. A no-brainer if ever there was one: Food stamps for a pot brownie? Colorado lawmakers want to make sure that doesn´t happen. A bill proposed by several Republicans would add marijuana dispensaries to liquor stores, gun shops and casinos as places where recipients of public assistance payments and food stamps can´t use their electronic benefits cards to access cash. There haven´t been any reports of public EBT cards being

A LEADING American divorce mediator will visit Washington this week to offer members of Congress advice on ending the "tiresome bickering" between Republicans and Democrats. If US tabloids are to be believed, she may need to visit the White House first. Michelle Obama´s extended absence from Washington and a flurry of renewed speculation about the state of the first couple´s marriage are threatening to overshadow her 50th birthday party at the White House on Saturday. Not for the first time in their 22-year marriage the Obamas are approaching what should be a happy family milestone under a cloud of rampant tabloid innuendo, summed

GLAAD needs a makeover. Their Queer Eye for Straight Guy Phil Robertson blew up in their face. Just ask A&E. Not since the young Vito Corleone persuaded landlord Signor Roberto to “walkback” his decision to evict the poor widow and her dog (“of course the dog stays, right?”) has a business decision been reversed as abruptly, awkwardly or hilariously. We can only wonder what Phil Robertson’s version of “of course the dog stays, right?” Sounded like to the hat-holding and stuttering A&E executives. “Who put a book by that filthy f*ggot on my shelf!” snarled Che Guevara (subject of a History Channel

Mahmoud Abbas said in a speech to supporters that he will not recognize Israel as a Jewish state and will not sign a peace deal that does not include eastern Jerusalem as the capital of a Palestinian state. The Palestinian Authority president made the inflammatory remarks on Saturday during a visit by hundreds of Palestinian activists to his Ramallah headquarters in the West Bank, the Associated Press reported. He also said that he would not negotiate beyond the original nine-month deadline set by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry for the U.S.-backed negotiations, to end in a final status deal. After the

By his third year as chairman of the Alabama Republican organization, Mike Hubbard believed his party had just about everything it needed to win control of the State Legislature. He had a plan: an 88-page playbook for the 2010 campaign, with detailed, district-by-district budgets and precise voter turnout targets. He had candidates: doctors, lawyers and small-business owners, most of them political novices recruited with an eye toward the anti-establishment fervor roiling the country. What Mr. Hubbard did not have was enough money. Alabama law barred corporations, deep-pocketed natural allies for state Republicans, from giving more than $500 to candidates and parties —

YOU get to know all the old people. This is what no one tells you when you live in New York City and decide to work from home, but it’s true. One generation’s “off-peak hours” is another’s “hours.” There they are, walking their rickety dogs at 10, doing their laundry at noon, checking their mail at 3, asking you if you know how to operate a VCR machine at 6. You can be ill at ease with this, seeing it as a premature separation from your rightful generation, or you can choose to embrace it. Marilyn helped me embrace it. She

Radio’s Mark Levin on Friday evening excoriated House GOP leadership, particularly House Speaker John Boehner, Majority Leader Eric Cantor and Budget Committee chairman Paul Ryan, for their immigration policies that will end up aiding an increased welfare state. We’ve talked about Obama and his economic record, which is worse than Jimmy Carter’s. Now, what are we going to do about it in this country? They have a new idea. In addition to increasing unemployment compensation, or I should say extending, in addition to more food stamps and more disability insurance—in other words, expand the welfare side of the state rather

Reagan spokesman Larry Speakes buried Friday,

Larry Speakes, 74, who was thrust into the White House press secretary’s job after former President Reagan and his spokesman Jim Brady were shot in 1981, died Friday and, in an unusual move, was buried the very same day. Speakes had a long bout with Alzheimer’s disease and died in Cleveland, Miss., where he was born. A spokesman for the Cleveland Funeral Home said he died at about 3 a.m. and his family, in Cleveland, had made prearrangements for a swift burial.

The warnings are out in force. Yellow plastic tripods. Big metal signs. “CAUTION: Falling Ice.” They cause a flash of unease — what to do? Look up and get a plummeting icicle in the eye? Look down and hurry past, hoping for the best? That’s what most pedestrians do. And wasn’t there some tragedy? Years ago. Someone killed on Michigan Avenue? Yes there was. The accident dwells at the periphery of mind for many Chicagoans, a place of half-remembered horror, like an urban myth except, of course, it actually happened 20 years ago.

He was in high school and quite brilliant. The kind of kid who didn´t pick up a book all year and aced all of his honors and AP tests -- in complex subjects like Physics. He was also musically gifted. But he couldn´t stop smoking weed. The school and his parents did all they could; he even took up sports so he wouldn´t go home after school and smoke. The more he smoked, the more he slacked off, the less frequently he attended class, did his work, and participated in class. They finally expelled him. He was last seen walking on 101

It is ironic that just as Washington, D.C. and New York City–the two centers of cluelessness in American life–are convulsed with a mini-scandal involving lane closure on a bridge, two more major Obama administration scandals have come to light. The first is Obama’s nomination of Debo Adegbile to head the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. We might have guessed that Obama couldn’t do worse than Adegbile’s predecessor, Tom Perez, but we would have been wrong. Adegbile is a race hustler who is best known as the mouthpiece for guilty-as-hell cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal. The “free Mumia” movement is one of the

Change course. Like bloodwork results for a weak, wheezing patient, Friday’s jobs report confirmed that deeply serious ills plague the U.S. economy. Across the country, the private and public sectors combined to add a meager 74,000 jobs, the lowest monthly total in three years. The unemployment rate fell, but for the worst possible reason: An increasing number of Americans dropped completely out of the workforce, so they were no longer counted as unemployed. Pushed by the growing number of people who are claiming disability benefits, the labor participation rate has sunk and sunk and sunk some more. It is now on par with

The U.S. military is like the highly skilled, gadget-toting contractor who promises to give your kitchen a nifty makeover in no time whatsoever. Here´s the guy you can count on to get the job done. Just look at those references! Yet by the time he drives off months later, the kitchen´s a shambles and you´re stuck with a bill several times larger than the initial estimate. Turns out the job was more complicated than it seemed. But what say we take a crack at remodeling the master bath? That pretty much summarizes the American experience with war since the end of

It’s hard to believe some think U.N. resolutions and the Peace Corps. actually bring peace to anyone. Wiser students of history know that the U.S. military has done more for peace than nearly anyone else. It’s not as politically advantageous for the left to admit this, so you won’t see stories of gratitude like the one told by Iraq War vet and amputee J.R. Salzmann about a chance encounter with a cab driver in Texas.

Paging Auntie Zeituni… If only Barack Obama would spend more time with his beloved relative in South Boston, perhaps he would better understand the ever-growing welfare state he so zealously presides over. Last week he was pushing for yet another extension in unemployment benefits, dismissing the argument that “it will somehow hurt the unemployed because it saps their motivation to get a new job.” His audience, gathered together in the middle of what used to be called a “work day,” cheered wildly. “That really sells the American people short …” Auntie Zeituni’s nephew said. “I can’t name a time when I met an American

Earlier this week, there was a spring in conservatives’ step. That was because Chris Christie was in deep doo-doo. His career seemed to be imploding, over Bridgegate. Conservatives hadn’t been so happy since the Obamacare rollout (which wasn’t that long ago). The end of Christie’s career would not be a good thing — for New Jersey, for the Republican party, for conservatism, or for the country. He is a valuable conservative, one of the most talented politicians in America. We are lucky to have him on our side — general side. Lately, I have been more and more impatient with 100-percenters —

While he was waiting for the gas company to turn his heat back on, I offered him a spot near the fireplace and some libations to warm him up. He´s a professor of journalism at Whackadoodle School here in the District of Columbia, a place that attracts ambitious, earnest young people who "want to make a difference" without working too hard at it.

Goodbye to a Legendary Warrior

The death of former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon is the final curtain on a long sad drama that began in 2005 when he was felled by a massive stroke. He was a legendary warrior for Israel against its enemies and a genius of tactics and strategy. Arguably it took eight years in a coma to wring the vitality from him. He was a giant and an exemplar for those who believe, as I do, that the Jewish state is a benign democratic outpost of civilization in the Middle East. For all those who think that area of the world

Portland pimp sues Nike for $100

A 26-year-old Portland pimp has filed a $100 million lawsuit against Nike, claiming the shoe manufacturer is partially responsible for a brutal beating that helped net him a 100-year prison sentence. Sirgiorgiro Clardy claims Nike should have placed a label in his Jordan shoes warning consumers that they could be used as a dangerous weapon. He was wearing a pair when he repeatedly stomped the face of a john who was trying to leave a Portland hotel without paying Clardy´s prostitute in June 2012. Jurors early in 2013 found him guilty of second-degree assault for using his Jordans -- a dangerous weapon

With media attention focused on Chris Christie and Bridgegate, it was easy to miss a more important Washington story last week. The other shoe dropped on the Obama presidency. Still battered at home by the ObamaCare debacle and the permanently sluggish economy, the last thing the White House wanted was bad news on foreign policy. But that’s exactly what it got, and then some, thanks to the shockingly scathing book by Robert Gates. The former defense secretary offers the most devastating critique to come from an Obama insider. He paints the president as estranged from the very Afghan military surge he ordered

Ariel Sharon—a man whose deeds as soldier, general, cabinet minister, and prime minister were decisive in the history of modern Israel, a soldier-statesman of true historical significance, a larger-than-life figure whose like we´re unlikely to see again—dies, and Barack Obama issues a statement that would be appropriate if one were recognizing the death of a pedestrian functionary who had routinely served as the insignificant leader of a random country. Here is Obama´s complete statement: "On behalf of the American people, Michelle and I send our deepest condolences to the family of former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and to the people
