CNN Caper Diabolic scheme tried to put reporter in unsafe situation

September 29, 2010 politisite 0

From Abbie Boudreau I’ve been a reporter for nine years. My first official day on the job was on 9-11. I was the bureau chief in Dubuque, Iowa, working as a one-man band. I shot my own video, set up my own live shots, and edited my own stories. I would bring home the police scanner to make sure the nights were quiet in this modest town along the grand […]

Haley poised to win South Carolina Governor Race, DeMint solid win

September 13, 2010 politisite 0

In an environment where Republicans seem to be favored over Democrats nationally, the same appears to hold in South Carolina, Republican Gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley has gained over Democrat Vincent Sheheen for 49 to 35 percent in the previous poll to 52 to 36 percent in the latest poll performed by Rasmussen Reports. The spread has increased as well from 14 to 16 percentage points.

Don't look for the Teachers union Label for School test-score analysis

August 16, 2010 politisite 0

As someone who ran call centers for fifteen years, I can attest to the necessity of objective measures in analyzing performance and mission success.  For tasks where direct and constant supervision is impossible, the development of performance metrics is critical to determine whether an organization accomplishes its tasks regularly and reliably, and which employees succeed or fail individually.  This applies in education, perhaps especially, where teachers inevitably make the determination […]

Obama Vacation stunt to Gulf lasts a full 27 hours

August 13, 2010 politisite 0

President Barack Obama is finally doing what he’s been telling Americans to do all summer: He’s spending time with his family on the Gulf Coast. His toe-dip of a visit is less a relaxing, presidential vacation than it is an all-inclusive business trip. In fewer than 27 hours in Panama City, Fla.

Government of the Courts, by the Courts, and for the Courts? – Judge says Prop 8 advocates have no standing to appeal

August 13, 2010 politisite 0

Every legal expert in America knows that the battle over marriage has just begun–everyone, it seems, but Judge Vaughn Walker. Now that he’s overturned Proposition 8, Walker says our side has suddenly lost their standing to appeal. To people familiar with the courts and the appellate process, that statement is totally absurd. If the proponents of Prop 8 didn’t have standing, there wouldn’t have been a trial in the first place! A judge can’t strip away a group’s standing when it’s convenient for him. As an open homosexual, I’m sure that Walker would like nothing better than to say, “Case closed!” But that’s not the way our legal system works. If a team of attorneys has standing to defend Proposition 8, then surely they have a right to appeal a ruling abolishing it.

Video: Soros invested in Petrobras days before Obama invested Billions, Special Prosecutor Needed?

June 21, 2010 politisite 7

The U.S. is going to lend billions of dollars to Brazil’s state-owned oil company, Petrobras, to finance exploration of the huge offshore discovery in Brazil’s Tupi oil field in the Santos Basin near Rio de Janeiro. Brazil’s planning minister confirmed that White House National Security Adviser James Jones met this month with Brazilian officials to talk about the loan. Apparently, Barack Obama’s pal George Soros has invested heavily in Petrobas. […]

Supreme Court: You must speak up if you want to remain silent

June 1, 2010 politisite 0

The big surprise to this decision is that it came down to a 5-4 split, with Justice Anthony Kennedy providing the deciding vote.  The Supreme Court overturned a ruling from the appeals court that threw out a confession and a conviction in a murder case where the suspect provided monosyllabic answers to questions for three hours before finally admitting guilt, but did not explicitly invoke his right to remain silent.  […]

Elena Kagan puts ‘innocent life’ in Quotes? Clues on Abortion stance?

May 12, 2010 politisite 0

So why did Kagan put Innocent life in quotes?  what does this tell us about her?  In 1980 following the wins for the Republican party, Kagan wrote, “victories of these anonymous but Moral Majority-backed [candidates] . . . these avengers of ‘innocent life’ and the B-1 Bomber . . .” By putting the Term ‘innocent life” in quotes is more then telling, she is alluding that the unborn are not […]
