Letdown?


The Pittsburgh Steelers won a huge game last week on the road in Baltimore, beating the Ravens in the Blood & Guts Bowl 13-10 in a great defensive battle.  This week, they have to guard against a letdown at home as the 2-10 Cincinnati Bengals come to Heinz Field.  The Bengals have had a very […]

This Week in Government Failure

December 10, 2010 · Posted in The Capitol · Comments Off 

By Tad DeHaven

Over at Downsizing the Federal Government, we focused on the following issues this week:

  • Unfortunately, the president’s Fiscal Commission appears to have operated on the premise that the federal government should continue to do everything it now does.
  • Getting Rep. Jeff Flake on appropriations is a step in the right direction, but his appointment can’t be a token gesture.
  • A new study finds that policymakers needn’t fear spending cuts.
  • House Republican leaders’ support for “Prince of Pork” Hal Rogers to chair the chamber’s appropriations committee is a slap in the face of voters who demanded change in November.
  • Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, whose state’s unemployment rate is almost 13 percent, has advice for Washington on how to create jobs. No, it’s not April 1st.

DREAM Act update: Senate tables cloture vote, stalled another week

December 9, 2010 · Posted in The Capitol · Comments Off 

The Senate just voted 59-40 to table the DREAM Act illegal alien bailout cloture vote. It’s been “vitiated,” to use Senate parlance. They’ll take up the House-passed version next week.

Which means another week of open-borders agitation, radical ethnic triablism, and new Democrat euphemisms for illegal aliens.

It’s also another week for you to re-double phone calls, faxes and e-mails to Washington and demand that they put law-abiding American workers and students — and law-abiding immigrants and visa applicants — first.

DREAM Act vote scheduled this week

December 7, 2010 · Posted in The Capitol · Comments Off 

Marcos Restrepo of our sister site the Florida Independent reports that the U.S. House of Representatives is expected to take a vote on the DREAM Act this week, where it will likely pass. The problem, as always, will come in the Senate, where Republican leaders have vowed to block all legislation until they get the tax cuts for the richest one percent of Americans extended.

Egypt’s shark week: Mossad to blame?

December 7, 2010 · Posted in The Capitol · Comments Off 

Five
tourists have been attacked by sharks (with one killed) over the past week in
the waters off Egypt’s Red Sea coast, a vacation area especially popular with snorkelers
and scuba divers. And nobody knows what to do.

Despite the
frequent depiction of the
cartilaginous fish as terrifying man eaters, these kinds of attacks are
actually very rare. The Egyptian government has brought in experts from
around the world to help solve the shark crisis. So far no one has arrived at a
definitive conclusion, but possible explanations include over fishing in the
Red Sea, an excess of resorts along the coast, and the effects of climate
change
.

There’s
another theory floating around, though: Israel’s infamous intelligence agency
is behind the attacks. Ahram Online reports (and refutes):

Speaking on
the public TV program "Egypt Today" yesterday, a specialist
introduced as "Captain Mustafa Ismael, a famous diver in Sharm El
Sheikh," said that the sharks involved in the attack are ocean sharks and
do not live in Egypt’s waters.

When asked
by the anchor how the shark entered Sharm El Sheikh waters, he burst out,
"no, who let them in."

Urged to
elaborate, Ismael said that he recently got a call from an Israeli diver in
Eilat telling him that they captured a small shark with a GPS planted in its
back, implying that the sharks were monitored to attack in Egypt’s waters only.

"Why would these
sharks travel 4000 km and not have any accidents until it entered Sinai?"
said Ismael.

Earlier
today, General Abdel Fadeel Shosha, the governor of South Sinai, backed
Ismael’s theory. In a phone call to the TV program, he said that it is possible
that Israeli intelligence, Mossad, is behind the incident and that they are
doing it to undermine the Egyptian tourism industry. He added that Egypt needs
time to investigate the theory.

The shark attacks
have the potential to do some real damage to Egypt, where tourism is pillar of
the economy and an important provider of jobs. But the idea that Israel (which
is currently dealing with its own Nature Channel-worthy crisis) is
behind the attacks is pretty farfetched.
