Sheldon Adelson "Roved" Again?

Sep 18, 2014 7:16 AM PT

Just as a high stakes gambler in the wrong place at the wrong time might get "rolled" from time to time, Las Vegas casino mogul Sheldon Adelson appears ripe to get "Roved" yet again based upon reports he's "donated $10 million to a Karl Rove-backed outfit boosting Republican Senate candidates and promised a similar amount to an allied group focused on House races."

Adelson's political wingman Andy Abboud attempts to portray it otherwise but the timing and Rove's mid-term strategy doesn't really support his thesis.

Sep 18, 2014 6:07 AM PT

House Republicans continue to be split along mostly conservative and establishment lines, as they voted and passed the Mckeon amendment, a tougher, more restrictive bill that would arm and train the rag-tag and unknown Free Syrian Army rebels.

Republican leadership in the House of Representatives pushed the Rep. Mckeon's amendment in hopes that it would appease both Republican and Democrat concerns about giving President Obama blanket military  authorization to counter the ISIS threat in Iraq and Syria.

Georgia Confirms 25 Fraudulent Voter Applications

Sep 17, 2014 4:31 PM PT

A Georgia-based group investigating voter fraud says it has documented 25 fraudulent voter applications out of approximately 85,000. The numbers are fueling a war of words between two sides in the ongoing investigation.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Investigators backed away Wednesday from allegations a Democratic-backed group may have organized voter registration fraud, saying they can confirm 25 applications of more than 85,000 submitted to the Georgia Secretary of State’s office. 

Chief investigator Chris Harvey, however, said the office needed more information from the New Georgia Project to confirm no more fraudulent forms existed — already, it has identified another 26 applications as suspicious. The state has extended a deadline for the group to get investigations such information through Sept. 26.

Rush Limbaugh spokesperson  Brian Glicklich claims the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is "lying" about Limbaugh's recent remarks on sexual abuse in "a disturbing and cynical attempt to fund-raise from the serious problem of sexual abuse."

On Tuesday, DCCC Chairman Steve Israel sent a blast email asking supporters to sign a petition calling on Limbaugh's sponsors to pull their advertising from his program because of remarks he had made about rape. Israel characterized Limbaugh as saying, "…No" means "yes" if you know how to spot it…” The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee sent out a similar email on Wednesday.

Sam Harris: Obama is Sleepwalking Toward Armageddon

Sep 17, 2014 2:32 PM PT

Sam Harris had some harsh words for President Obama after his speech last week, the one in which he declared, "ISIL is not Islamic." Harris, one of the outspoken new atheists, wonders when, if ever, the truth about Islam will be spoken by our leaders.

As an atheist, I cannot help wondering when this scrim of pretense and delusion will be finally burned away—either by the clear light of reason or by a surfeit of horror meted out to innocents by the parties of God. Which will come first, flying cars and vacations to Mars, or a simple acknowledgment that beliefs guide behavior and that certain religious ideas—jihad, martyrdom, blasphemy, apostasy—reliably lead to oppression and murder? It may be true that no faith teaches people to massacre innocents exactly—but innocence, as the President surely knows, is in the eye of the beholder. Are apostates “innocent”? Blasphemers? Polytheists? Islam has the answer, and the answer is “no.”
