When mere political
rhetoric was for sissies

Washington Times, by Wesley Pruden

We’re almost there. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney have inflicted maximum damage on each other. Campaign wise men have slipped into the pooh-pooh mode, pooh-poohing the other side’s claims of good news. The dainty and delicate, afraid of the sight of blood, can relax, have a cookie and sip a nice cuppa tea (herbal recommended). As American campaigns go, this one has been lively but not particularly vicious, unless you’re Mitt Romney and accused of dooming. He was accused of dooming one woman to death by cancer, and plotting to doom a young unmarried law student

The federal government raked in a record of approximately $2,472,542,000,000 in tax revenues through the first eleven months of fiscal 2013, which ran from Oct. 1, 2012 through the end of August, according to the Monthly Treasury Statement for August. That is up about $285 billion from the approximately $2,187,527,000,000 in taxes the government took in through August of fiscal 2012. Despite these record tax revenues, the federal government still accumulated a $755 billion deficit in the first eleven months of fiscal 2013. Totally federal spending through the first eleven months of the fiscal year was $3.228 trillion. At the end of last

Deputy Attorney General James Cole told Congress this week that although the Justice Department did consult with federal, state and local agencies on marijuana legalization in Colorado and Washington State, "we should have reached out to them one more time before we made the decision" not to challenge those state laws. Cole testified before the Senate Judiciay Committee on Tuesday afternoon, Sept. 10. That very morning, Cole said, he and Attorney General Eric Holder met with various federal, state and local groups for over an hour -- to apologize and ask their forgiveness for not offering "one more opportunity for them

The State Department through its Bureau of Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs plans to spend $450,000 to create green jobs in Morocco. “Morocco has set the goal to become one of the world’s largest sustainable economies by 2020, with an emphasis on creating green jobs in: renewable energy, sustainable agriculture, environmental and natural resource management, and improvement in environmental technologies,” the grant announcement said. “Morocco’s green growth strategy focuses on three major areas that include: energy security, food security, and environmental security. This includes solar and wind power, energy efficiency, intensive and communal sustainable agriculture, and solid waste and greenhouse

Military Action in Syria is Unjust

One of the often forgotten precepts of the Christian Just War Theory is that "Before war is entered upon there must be a reasonable belief that such an action will be successful." This is to guard against a futile waste of life and destruction - even if the cause for action may be just. Some will maintain that President Obama´s request for military strike on Syria does not constitute a war. Quite simply, however, barring legal technicalities any attack on a sovereign nation is a de facto act of war. The outcome of any war is unpredictable because of unforeseeable variables. However,

Measuring Putin for Mount Rushmore

But ridding Syria of its chemicals won’t be easy If you’re reading or listening in the wrong places, you might think they’re already measuring a place for Vladimir Putin on Mount Rushmore, sandwiched between Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. That’s where Barack Obama, who may have to give Mr. Putin the Nobel Peace Prize he won for doing nothing, expected to rest one day. Before the sculptors with their chisels board a train for Rapid City, the euphoric legion should stop to figure out just how Mr. Putin and his client, Bashar Assad, intend to dismantle the stocks of chemical weapons.

The unprecedented gesture came as his incoming number two, the Vatican´s newly-nominated secretary of state, said that the rule that priests should be celibate was not "a dogma of the Church" and could be open for discussion. Francis, who has won praise for spontaneous and unusual moves during his six month papacy, wrote a lengthy letter to a newspaper, La Repubblica, which the Italian daily printed over four pages, including page one, under the simple byline "Francesco". "God forgives those who obey their conscience," he wrote in the unprecedented letter, the latest example of the markedly different tone and style from his

KABUL - Suspected Taliban militants in Afghanistan on Thursday shot dead an Indian woman whose memoir about marrying an Afghan and life under the Islamist militia was made into a Bollywood movie, officials said. The killing of Sushmita Banerjee was the latest in a string of attacks on prominent women in Afghanistan, adding to fears women´s rights in a country where many are barely allowed outside the house will recede even more after U.S.-led foreign forces fully withdraw in 2014. The militants arrived before dawn at Banjerjee´s residence in eastern Paktika province, which lies in Afghanistan´s east — a region where the

It is hard, if you´ve got a head and a heart, to come down against a strong U.S. response to Syria´s use of chemical weapons against its civilian population. This is especially so if you believe that humanity stands at a door that leads only to darkness. Those who say, "But Saddam Hussein used chemical weapons—the taboo was broken long ago," are missing the point. When Saddam used gas against the Kurds it was not immediately known to all the world. It was not common knowledge. The world rued it in retrospect. Syria is different: It is the first obvious,

Ahead of a day of prayer and fasting for Syria on Saturday, called for by Pope Francis, a Christian charity working in the country said church leaders there are appealing for help, not military intervention. “As U.S. President Barack Obama rallies support for a military strike on Syria, Christian leaders from the country have called on Western nations to focus their efforts instead on providing aid to help meet the ‘dire need’ of the suffering people,” said Barnabas Fund. In a letter Thursday to G20 leaders meeting in Russia, Pope Francis urged them to “lay aside the futile pursuit of a military

September is National Preparedness Month, and in a news release urging everyone to be mindful of potential terror attacks, natural disasters, and pandemics, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said the federal government is ready to help: "While our federal family is becoming better prepared to support the nation, we know that being truly resilient requires the whole community coming together," she said. "Simply put: bystanders can’t stand by. We’ve seen countless times that bystanders are truly the first responders. They save lives. Each of us must be ready to help others when every minute counts."

Al Qaeda-Linked Rebels Attack
Christian Village Where Aramaic--
Language of Christ--Still Spoken

DAMASCUS, Syria — The sound of artillery reverberated Thursday through a predominantly Christian village north of Damascus as government troops and al-Qaida-linked rebels battled for control of the mountainside sanctuary. The hit-and-run attacks on the ancient village of Maaloula, one of the few places in the world where residents still speak Aramaic, highlighted fears among Syria´s religious minorities about the growing role of extremists among those fighting in the civil war to topple President Bashar Assad´s regime. The fighting came as President Barack Obama´s administration pressed the U.S. Congress for its authorization of a military strike against the Assad regime, while

For some time we have been hearing, and in my case believing, that the United States of America is headed for a train wreck of gigantic proportions. Fiscally, socially, politically, and now President Obama has added militarily to the list among other things. The USA has always had the resiliency of a rubber band, but events of the last five years have all but taken away our ability to snap back. A rubber band can only stretch so far before it breaks. It is said that one definition of insanity is continuing to do the same thing over and over and expecting

In comments likely to enhance his progressive reputation, Pope Francis has written a long, open letter to the founder of La Repubblica newspaper, Eugenio Scalfari, stating that non-believers would be forgiven by God if they followed their consciences. Responding to a list of questions published in the paper by Mr Scalfari, who is not a Roman Catholic, Francis wrote: “You ask me if the God of the Christians forgives those who don’t believe and who don’t seek the faith.

If you think the Obama health law is only for the uninsured and you won´t be affected, you´re in for a surprise next time you go to the doctor. Be prepared for questions unrelated to why you are seeking medical help — questions that you don´t want to answer. Whether you´re at the dermatologist or the cardiologist, you´ll likely be asked: "Are you sexually active? If so, do you have one partner, multiple partners or same-sex partners?" Doctors are being turned into government agents, where they´re pressured financially to ask questions … and violate their Hippocratic Oath ...

After 4 1 / 2 years of reminding Americans to eat their vegetables, Michelle Obama is turning her attention to what’s in their glasses. On Thursday, she and her staff will begin to ask Americans to drink more water. “Let’s Move,” meet “Drink Up.” In an all-out effort, Obama will fly to Watertown, Wisc. (Get it?) Actress Eva Longoria is expected to accompany the first lady. While there, Obama plans to ask cities all over to make their town a Water-town.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) hinted that he might be serving his last term in office, admitting that he does not want to become “one of these old guys that should’ve shoved off.” McCain, a 27-year veteran of the Senate and former presidential candidate, made the admission while speaking about his relationship with President Obama. “The president and I, he´s in his last term, I´m probably in mine, the relationship we have had over the past three years is quite good,” McCain told The Wrap in an interview. “Quite good." The 77-year-old´s current term is up in 2016. When asked if this would really

The principal of Concord Carlisle High School in Boston issued an apology Wednesday after a Muslim poem was recited over the intercom on the 12th anniversary of 9/11, and the Pledge of Allegiance was not.

Republican Rep. Tom Graves and 42 House cosponsors introduced a budget plan Thursday to defund Obamacare without forcing a government shutdown, placing pressure solely on the shoulders of Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Graves’ Security, Stability, and Fairness Resolution is a continuing resolution budget bill that offers a fiscal year 2014 budget that keeps the government open but does not fund Obamacare. The Obama administration has already delayed the law’s employer mandate until 2015, after the 2014 midterm elections. The “Defund Obamacare” campaign spearheaded by Republican Sen. Ted Cruz has repeatedly been accused of seeking a government shutdown if

Those skeptical of the degeneration of America’s royal line need look no further than Robert Kennedy Jr. His grandfather bedded Gloria Swanson. His father scored Marilyn Monroe. He mounts any rando who passes by. Like the Spanish Habsburgs or the Royal Tennenbaums, Camelot ain’t what it used to be. The diary of Robert Kennedy Jr., detailed in the New York Post this week, begins by announcing the pregnancy of his wife. By its conclusion, the 2001 journal references 37 women other than its author’s wife with whom he messed around that year. Slightly less than half of the women he physically

A perplexed Ed Schultz on Friday couldn´t fathom why Americans don´t simply "love Obama." the MSNBC anchor highlighted a new poll showing that the President only has a 45 percent approval rating. Schultz marveled, "I just cannot believe this number. Seriously." The confused host sputtered, "It amazes me that people don´t love Obama. It amazes me that the conservatives who are seeing the stock market go through the roof." [MP3 audio here.

Miss Kansas is not in Kansas anymore. And the Miss America pageant has never seen anyone like her. First off, Miss Kansas Theresa Vail is a sergeant in the U.S. Army, only the second contestant ever to be on active duty. "Nobody expects a soldier to be a beauty queen," Vail told People magazine. “But I´m all about breaking stereotypes." Second, Sgt. Vail has big tattoos. Two of them. One, the insignia for the U.S. Army Dental Corps, is on her left shoulder, while a massive version of the Serenity Prayer runs down her right side. And when she struts her stuff in

RENO, Nev.– It´s an obituary like you´ve probably never seen before. It’s about a woman who died and is survived by her children who, according to the obituary, spent her lifetime torturing them in pretty much every way possible. The obituary goes on to paint a picture of children who are grateful that their mother, Marianne Theresa-Johnson Reddick, is dead. The Reno Gazette Journal President & Publisher John Maher tells News 4 the obituary was sent in via a self-service online submission. The obituary appeared in the print edition of the newspaper today, September 10th. The on-line version of the obituary

They were getting worried, they told her, as they watched her slip in the polls and struggle to respond to attacks. The participants, including Mary Ann Tighe, the real estate executive, and Diana L.

In an interview on 106.7 The Fan in Washington, Goodell, who grew up in the region as a Baltimore Colts and then Redskins fan, said, "I think what we have to do though is we have to listen." “If one person is offended, we have to listen," he said.
