China's nuclear arsenal poses the most serious "mortal threat" to the United States among nation states, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told the Senate on Thursday.
November's election made it quite clear that the people of the United States do not want to radically change our society in the name of global warming. Pretty much every close House race went to the Republicans, while the Democrats won all the Senate squeakers. The difference? The House on June 26, 2009, passed a bill limiting carbon-dioxide emissions and getting into just about every aspect of our lives. The Senate did nothing of the sort.
The Senate on Tuesday rejected a moratorium on earmark spending, in a test vote that nonetheless showed surging support for a ban and left foes of pork-barrel spending predicting that the end of the practice is near.
The Senate yesterday shot down an attempt to ban congressional earmarks by a 56-39 vote. At first this would appear to be a significant setback to the fiscal-responsibility movement building over the past year through Tea Party activism. A closer look offers hope that the message sent by voters in the midterm congressional elections may actually be sinking in. The prospects for a bit of change - real change, this time - are looking better than ever.
Democrats are in strategic retreat after falling short of the votes needed Tuesday to repeal the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" law that prevents homosexuals from serving openly in the armed forces. That's good news for the soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen who signed up to defend their country, not to participate in social experimentation. Many of these brave individuals were taken aback by the comments of high-ranking military brass at an August meeting of U.S. troops stationed in Germany discussing President Obama's proposed changes to military life.
The National Defense Authorization bill includes an amendment from Sen. Roland Burris that would strike language that bans nearly all abortions in military hospitals.
President Obama is not finding many allies in his latest call for bipartisan cooperation on new infrastructure spending and tax breaks, and even Democrats say nothing will get done in the two months before congressional elections.
A group of eight senior Republican senators on Wednesday called on the Obama administration to investigate whether national security will be compromised by the Chinese telecommunications company Huawei seeking to sell equipment to Sprint Nextel, which provides goods to the U.S. military and law enforcement agencies.
One of the ongoing pastimes inside the Pentagon is to speculate on the departure date for Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates.
