Fourteen states have yet to apply for Early Learning Challenge

Fourteen States have not yet declared their intent to apply for the Early Learning Challenge, a $500 million Federal grant program, according to The Washington Times.

The Oslo discord

Last Friday afternoon, the monotonous buzz of liberal mendacity, gender bias and racism was shattered by the roar of a terrorist attack in Oslo, Norway. Once it became apparent that the perpetrator was not striking a blow for Muhammad, I started counting the moments until someone tried to link the actions of some fruitcake in the land of the midnight sun to the Tea Party.

Obama could face primary challenge from own party

Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is calling for a Democrat to challenge President Barack Obama in a primary election. Sanders told radio talk show host Thom Hartmann that the President has been able to move too far to the right because no Democrat has stood up to him.

General warns that deep defense cuts could hurt national security

President Barack Obama’s nominee to be the next chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff has warned against cutting defense spending too much.

The beginning of World War I

At 11:10 a.m. on July 28, 1914, Count Leopold von Berchtold, the Austro-Hungarian Minister for Foreign Affairs, sent a telegram to M.N. Pashitch, the Serbian Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs. The message read:

The Royal Serbian Government not having answered in a satisfactory manner the note of July 23, 1914, presented by the Austro-Hungarian Minister at Belgrade, the Imperial and Royal Government are themselves compelled to see to the safeguarding of their rights and interests, and, with this object, to have recourse to force of arms. Austria-Hungary consequently considers herself henceforward in state of war with Serbia. –COUNT BERCHTOLD

Thus began World War I.

Do the Boehner and Reid bills actually make trillions of dollars in cuts?

Both the upper and lower houses of Congress are currently considering bills to increase the debt limit and cut spending. The one in the House is sponsored by House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), and the one in the Senate is sponsored by Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.). Both bills have come under fire from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) for not actually delivering their respective amounts of promised cuts.

Tea Party leaders: Boehner should go

Tea Party activists Wednesday began advocating the removal of House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, saying he is capitulating to the status quo in Washington. Tea Party Nation leader Judson Phillips called on Boehner to leave and be replaced by a “Tea Party speaker of the House” in a blog post Wednesday, The Hill reported. Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of the Tea Party Patriots, said her organization was exploring the same idea.

Britain admits freeing Lockerbie bomber was a mistake

Britain’s foreign secretary Wednesday condemned the last government’s release of the Lockerbie bomber, who turned up at a pro-Gadhafi rally in Tripoli. Sending jailed Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi home to Libya was a “great mistake,” William Hague said, and the medical advice used to justify it as “pretty much worthless.”

Boehner to GOP: ‘Get your a** in line’

As the Aug. 2 deadline for raising the debt limit approaches, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) is attempting to martial Republican support for his bill. After originally presenting the bill on Monday (seeking a vote today), the Speaker has since moved the vote on the bill to Thursday, needing time to make changes after the bill was poorly received by the Congressional Budget Office.

Battleground state polls paint dismal picture for Obama re-election

Obama’s national poll results have not been stellar. According to Gallup, his job approval rate is currently around 46 percent, and in an election against a generic Republican candidate, Obama loses by 8 percentage points. However, according to one columnist, it’s Obama’s poll numbers in battleground states that should be keeping the incumbent up at night.
