    Wednesday | Washington Times

    U.S. authorities say there's no specific "chatter" indicating an imminent terrorist plot targeting the American homeland, but intelligence and law enforcement officials are staying vigilant around Thanksgiving - which arrives just weeks after the Department of Homeland Security cited an enhanced threat of "lone" wolf attacks in the United States. One U.S. official, who spoke anonymously with The Washington Times on Wednesday, said that "the lack of chatter or an uptick in chatter is not necessarily an indicator of a threat" one way or another.

    Tuesday Nov 18 | Washington Times

  8. Nurses union calls on OSHA to mandate 'optimal' Ebola gearRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday Nov 18 | Washington Times

    National Nurses United said the Occupational Safety and Health Administration should flex its authority by mandating every hospital in America to provide "optimal" protective gear against the deadly virus that has killed roughly 5,000 in West Africa and infected two of the Dallas nurses who treated Thomas Eric Duncan , the Liberian man who flew to Texas and later died from Ebola. NNU co-President Karen Higgins said federal officials should follow the lead of California's occupational safety agency, which last week mandated that hospitals provide the type of equipment the union has been asking for since Ebola hit U.S. shores.

  9. Jonathan Gruber, Obamacare architect, recast as bit player amid uproar over remarksRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday Nov 13 | Washington Times

    For years, Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor Jonathan Gruber was deemed an architect of Obamacare and his economic modeling was cited regularly by the health care law's defenders on Capitol Hill and in legal briefs defending the Affordable Care Act in federal courts. But after tapes surfaced of the economist saying "stupid" voters needed to be bamboozled and the books cooked to get the legislation passed in 2010, Democrats are scrambling to reduce Mr. Gruber to a bit player - and raising questions about whether he needs to be expunged from their defense strategy as they face yet another Supreme Court review.

  11. Wes Pruden: Democrats working through the five stages of grief, still in denialRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday Nov 13 | Washington Times

    Washington usually lives up to its reputation as a place where time stands still when all people in all the other places want to move, if not at warp speed, faster than Congress will. The Democrats, still as addled as the famous duck hit on the head by the farmer's wife with a long-handled wooden spoon, are still trying to get through the famous five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.

  12. GOP must be rock steady to fight the spinRead the original story

    Thursday Nov 13 | Washington Times

    The American people better hope Obamacare covers Dramamine, given the furious amount of spin coming out of Washington since the midterm elections. The mainstream media, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Democratic Party, is working overtime to "interpret" the election to convince voters they didn't say what they plainly meant to say, in an election where the Republicans took over the Senate, increased their majority in the House, elected governors in deep-blue states and even scored historic victories in statehouses around the country.

    Wednesday Nov 5 | Washington Times

    Wonder Woman is home from the war on women, a "war" fought mostly in the fantasies of embattled Democrats, and she sounds like a Republican who looks a lot like Joni Ernst of Iowa. Or Elise Stefanik of New York, who at 30 will be the youngest woman to serve in Congress , or Mia Love of Utah, 38, daughter of Haitian immigrants and the first black Republican woman in Congress .
