  • Kentucky Senate Election Looms Largest

    23 Oct 2014 | 10:22 am
    Barack Obama lost Kentucky in 2012 by 23 points, yet the state remains closely divided about re-electing the man whose parliamentary skills uniquely qualify him to restrain Obama's executive overreach. So, Kentucky's Senate contest is a constitutional moment that will determine whether the separation of powers will be reasserted by a Congress revitalized by restoration of the Senate's dignity.

    23 Oct 2014 | 2:30 am
    Democrat Wendy Davis said Wednesday she would welcome President Barack Obama campaigning for her in Texas after largely keeping distance from him throughout her underdog run for governor. Still trailing by double digits in some polls with less than two weeks until Election Day, Davis is no longer so cautiously staying at arm's length from Obama, who has gloomy approval ratings in Texas but still packs the ability to boost turnout among Democratic voters.

  • Hambycast: These nerds can elect almost anyone

    24 Oct 2014 | 5:25 am
    There's an entire industry in American politics built around finding and mobilizing voters, largely constructed by Democrats who have been innovating in the field for more than a decade. The nerd science of campaigning — sifting through data, analyzing behavior, modeling segments of voters and persuading people to cast ballots — is one reason President Barack Obama's team flabbergasted Mitt Romney's overconfident numbers-crunchers in 2012.

    3 Oct 2014 | 11:17 am
    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.

    Obama is still asking for election-year patience on immigration reform. He still doesnt understand the human cost of delayWashington is a town known for its contradictions. 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…

Our sewer systems are overloaded by the smallest amounts of rainfalls There appeared to be a need for a nation wide rainwater harvesting system. This is a mammoth undertaking that could prevent future energy, environmental and economic issues for our country. . . Location: Pennsburg PA 18073
