  • Statement by the Vice President on the Passing of Tom Menino

    The White House
    30 Oct 2014 | 12:05 pm
    Jill and I were saddened to hear of the passing of our good friend, Boston Mayor Thomas Menino. Tommy was our friend for a long, long time, and he was without a doubt one of the finest Mayors this nation has ever seen. His heart was always as big as the city he loved. And he was, to his core, the very definition of Boston Strong. Unyielding. Absolutely committed. The poet R. G. Ingersoll could have been describing Tommy when he wrote: “When the will defies fear; When duty throws the gauntlet down to fate; When honor scorns compromise with death - - this is heroism!”   In the…

    Michelle and I were saddened to hear of the passing of Tom Menino. Bold, big-hearted, and Boston strong, Tom was the embodiment of the city he loved and led for more than two decades.  As Boston's longest-serving mayor, Tom helped make his hometown the vibrant, welcoming, world-class place it is today.  His legacy lives on in every neighborhood he helped revitalize, every school he helped turn around, and every community he helped make a safer, better place to live.  I had a chance to speak with Tom’s wife, Angela, yesterday, and today our thoughts and prayers are…

    A year ago I went with four MPs to a spot of land south of Jerusalem. It lies on the lands of the neighbouring Palestinian village of Beit Safafa. Nearby is one of the mega-Israeli settlements, Gilo. To the south is Bethlehem, where the wall imprisons the city of the birthplace of Christ. To the east is Har Homa, one of the most recent of the Jerusalem-area settlements. It is a thicket of concrete, designed to separate Jerusalem from Bethlehem and indeed from the southern West Bank. But only months before, this plot of land had been designated for a new Israeli settlement, Givat HaMatos.

Politicians caught having affairs preach family values. A series of presidents who have admitted to drug use in college oversee prosecutions that punish people for doing the same.

  • Did our energy future just come and then leave for China without anyone noticing?

    Daniel Steward
    13 Oct 2014 | 11:22 am
    Dear Mr. President, This past week a truly remarkable event transpired in the field of energy production that has gone completely unremarked in the mainstream media. This event was the independent verification of a device about the size of a ten inch piece of broom stick that over the course of 32 days produced a net energy out of 1.5 MWh, about the equivalent of burning a fifty gallon barrel of gasoline. The fuel was about 1 gram (half the weight of a penny) of a proprietary nickel powder that was not changed or added too during the test and was not completely consumed during the test. This…
