Sen. Bob Corker preps for
leadership role on foreign policy

Tennessean [Nashville, TN], by Paul C. Barton

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/14/2012 10:26:30 AM

WASHINGTON — Illustrating his emerging role among Senate Republicans, Tennessee’s Bob Corker seemed anxious last week to take on the Democratic presidential ticket himself in a foreign policy debate. Before the dust had settled from Thursday night’s nationally televised skirmish between Vice President Joe Biden and GOP vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan, Corker pounced on Biden’s remarks about the recent slaying of four American diplomatic personnel in Libya. Not true, Corker charged about Biden’s statement that the Obama administration didn’t know almost

The article states, “Lugar is part of the foreign policy establishment and hasn’t challenged it for many years. Candidly, the committee has had very little influence recently.” Prior to that paragraph, the article says Corker does not have the samew `gravitas`, (I hate that word), as Lugar. Really, then why laud Lugar when he has done nothing?

Thank goodness that old coot is out of our hair.

HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. - Karl Halverson Pierson was the Arapahoe High School student gunman who shot a student inside the school while seeking "revenge" on a staff member, the Arapahoe County Sheriff confirmed Friday night. Pierson, 18, went into the school armed with a shotgun looking for the school´s librarian, Tracy Murphy -- who was head of the school´s debate team and who had recently kicked Pierson off the team, sources told the CALL7 Investigators. "We were just in the library doing some work and we heard a loud bang. I thought it might have been someone dropping something, but

Steve Harvey Interviews Obama,
Avoids Politics, Defends Presidential Selfie

Steve Harvey got the chance for a one-on-one interview the President of the United States this week, a rare opportunity for a journalist let alone a comedian. Harvey made one item clear up front about his exclusive chat--he didn´t ask President Barack Obama any political questions. With that messy business out of the way, Harvey threw Obama a series of holiday-themed softballs according to the comedian´s recap of their Q&A. Later, Harvey described the interview to the press and even defended Obama from taking a "selfie" at a great leader´s memorial service, an action so tacky even Jon Stewart said it

White House´s Obamacare
tweet goes awry

#GetCovered? More like #GetReal. When the White House posted a tweet about Obamacare featuring the president holding a sign, it probably didn´t expect the kind of reaction it got. The message, which was posted last night on the official White House Twitter feed, was simple enough: "Nobody should go broke just because they get sick." It urges people to #GetCovered under Obamacare. The photo in the tweet shows the president holding the sign with the message, but the sign contained ample space for people to create their own messages with Photoshop or other editing software. And create they did. Some were

CENTENNIAL, Colo. — An armed student looking for a teacher shot and injured another student at Arapahoe High School here shortly after noon Friday before turning the gun on himself. Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson said the shooter was found dead of what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound in the school building. The gunman’s name has not been released, but his parents have been notified, the sheriff said. “He was looking for an individual teacher that he identified by name,” Sheriff Robinson said. “The teacher began to understand that he was being looked at and exited the school.”

The Rev. Billy Graham is near death, and it won’t be much longer before he succumbs to old age and goes “home to be with the Lord,” his grandson, Will Graham, said this week. “I wish [God] would give him strength, but I don’t think he needs strength anymore,” Mr. Graham said, to the Christian news site, Assist News Service. “It’s time to go home.” Mr. Graham, who’s spread the gospel around the world — and to the highest political offices in the nation — just turned 95 on Nov. 7, celebrating with a North Carolina party that included more

Saturday is the one-year anniversary of the horrific murders at Sandy Hook Elementary, which means it is also the anniversary of a shameless media attempting to exploit those murders into restrictions against our Second Amendment civil rights. Everywhere today you can see the elite media licking their wounds over this humiliating defeat. What has to be especially bitter is a new poll that shows the National Rifle Association is twice as popular as anti-gun extremist Mike Bloomberg. According to a new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll, the NRA is viewed favorably by 39% or those polled, while only 31% view the

Spirit Airlines is at it again, riffing off a current event for one of its promotional ads, this time using the Obama selfie flap to good advantage. While in South Africa to pay tribute to Nelson Mandela at the official memorial service last Tuesday, President Barack Obama captured a moment with British Prime Minister David Cameron and Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt, seated near him in the stands at FNB Stadium. Taking selfies is a new trend, thanks to improved cameras on smartphones these days. Oxford Dictionary even named "selfie" the international word of the year 2013.

Despite recent pushes by the Obama administration for immigration reform, a new poll released Thursday by Gallup shows that a majority of Americans are far more concerned with other issues such as healthcare, the economy, and a general sense of dissatisfaction with the government. Twenty one percent of respondents said that the most important problem facing the United States was dissatisfaction with government, while 19 percent said the economy in general was the most important problem. Rounding out the top three responses was healthcare, which 17 percent labeled as the most important issue. Immigration was second to last with three

New Yorkers have long endured other people’s celebrations. On St. Patrick’s Day, they know to stay out of the pubs in Midtown if they do not want to be overwhelmed in a sea of semiconscious green. They avoid driving into Manhattan at all costs during the Puerto Rican Day Parade. Fashion’s Night Out is an occasion to stay in if you live in SoHo. And New Year’s Eve? Amateur hour — unless an out-of-town visitor drags a native kicking and screaming to Times Square. Now, a new contender has emerged for the event that many New Yorkers love to hate:

KATHLEEN KANE, Pennsylvania´s attorney general since January, is now considering a run for higher elected office. The Scranton native is not planning to enter the crowded 2014 Democratic primary election for governor, as many speculated. Instead, Kane is eyeing a 2016 run for the U.S. Senate against Pat Toomey, a Lehigh Valley Republican. Three sources close to Kane confirmed that she is very interested in a 2016 Senate run. "I think she sees it as a good opportunity," one of the sources said. "I think it´s something she´s seriously looking at." No decision has been made, according to a second

Federal Judge: Mt. Soledad
Cross Must Come Down

A cross atop Mount Soledad in California is an unconstitutional religious display on government land and must come down, a federal judge in San Diego ruled late Thursday. U.S. District Judge Larry Burns ordered the cross, which honors veterans, must be removed within 90 days -- a decision that could result in the case being sent back to the U.S. Supreme Court. Burns immediately stayed his order pending an expected appeal. The original lawsuit was filed in 2006 by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of the Jewish Veterans of the United States of American and several other Southern

In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended

The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed.

Fox News host Megyn Kelly has made herself the center of a racial controversy by declaring that Jesus Christ and Santa Claus are white. On Wednesday night, Kelly was responding to an article by Slate writer Aisha Harris, who wrote an article entitled “ Santa Claus Should Not Be a White Man Anymore .” The popular news host told viewers of “The Kelly File,” her hit FNC program, “When I saw this headline, I kinda laughed and I said, ‘Oh, this is ridiculous.

Columnist Charles Krauthammer attacked new Obamacare rules unveiled by HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in a late Thursday conference call, saying the Obama administration is “approach[ing] banana republic lawlessness” by issuing the decrees. Krauthammer spoke with Fox News’ Bret Baier on a panel with Juan Williams and Judge Andrew Napolitano, as the three reacted to Sebelius’ new directives for insurance companies. “This is exactly a reaction to a deep understanding among Democrats that [Obamacare] is a train wreck,” he said. “And it’s a panic reaction. As the judge said, this is utterly lawless. This now approaches banana republic lawlessness.

Views of the tea party are at all-time lows in a new poll, as primary challenges to establishment Republicans continue to heat up Washington. Just 30 percent of Americans view the tea party favorably in a new Gallup poll released Wednesday, the movement’s lowest point since Gallup began polling about it during its rise in 2010. Also in a first, a majority of Americans had an unfavorable view of the tea party, at 51 percent. Similar numbers of respondents described themselves as proponents or opponents of the tea party: Twenty-two percent identified themselves as tea party supporters, while 24 percent said they

The parents of Trayvon Martin met with publishers this week to shop a book about their son, the unarmed black teenager who was shot and killed in Florida in 2012. According to two publishing executives who participated in meetings, Mr. Martin’s parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, said they intended to write a book that gives the full picture of their son while tracing their own experience of shock and sorrow. The meetings were described as somber and moving by publishers who were present. Ms. Fulton and Mr. Martin were accompanied by Jan Miller, their Dallas-based literary agent.

WASHINGTON – It’s not exactly a ringing endorsement of the budget deal.“Embrace the suck,” House minority leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi told fellow Democrats Thursday morning, a source told Politico.“We need to get this off the table so we can go forward,” she added. It’s a way of telling her colleagues the budget deal negotiated with Republicans is the best they can get. Democrats are fuming that the bipartisan budget deal doesn’t extend unemployment benefits for more than a million Americans. One of Pelosi’s top lieutenants, Rep. Chris Van Hollen, the top Democrat on the House Budget Committee, said Thursday it

Fearing that many people will think they have health insurance coverage when they do not, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is "urging" insurance companies to "give consumers additional time to pay their first month´s premium and still have coverage beginning Jan. 1, 2014." Insurance companies should cover people who haven´t yet paid, in other words. With just a few weeks to go until Obamacare takes full effect, Sebelius announced additional changes on Thursday, some that tell insurance companies how to run their business and others that "strongly" encourage insurance companies to waive their rules -- on premium payments,

THE Internet has been abuzz over the spectacle of President Obama and the prime ministers of Britain and Denmark snapping a photo of themselves — a “selfie,” to use the mot du jour — with a smartphone at the memorial service for Nelson Mandela in South Africa on Tuesday. Leaving aside whether it was appropriate, the moment captured the democratization of image making that is a hallmark of our gadget-filled, technologically rich era. Manifestly undemocratic, in contrast, is the way Mr. Obama’s administration — in hypocritical defiance of the principles of openness and transparency he campaigned on — has systematically tried

If you go down on the ice today you´re sure of a big surprise - a rare glimpse of 20 polar bears gorging on a bloody midnight feast. These photographs show a rare cluster of males, females and cubs all dining out on the remains of a whale carcass. They spent a night and a day stripping every last morsel from the mammoth sea creature. Usually Polar bears are solitary and would never tolerate being so close to each other. But with food in plentiful supply and bellies dragging on the floor they seem too lethargic to fight.Wildlife photographer Michal

Does MSNBC know that one of its hosts is receiving large amounts of money form an interest group whose political activities he covers? Does the network have any journalistic ethics guidelines at all? Elisha Krauss of truthrevolt.org presents the results of a search of Department of Labor archives showing the amounts of money Schultz has received from politically active organizations he covers: Schultz received at least $177,000 from labor unions in 2012; the average median income for an American family is around $44,000 a year. This year alone the DOL shows Schultz has been paid $75,000 by the AFL-CIO; just yesterday AFL-CIO Richard
