It's a long way to the Republican nomination, no matter how the Media may paint it.



Americans like horse-races and sporting events.

That's why our ratings and advertising supported media are treating each caucus and primary as if it were vital to the overall race to take on President Obama in the fall for the presidency.

Do not believe media hype that the Republican nomination belongs to Romney. Mitt Romney has won at least 10 delegates after a strong first-place finish in Nevada's caucuses. With votes from 71 percent of the precincts counted, Romney has 48 percent, while Newt Gingrich has 23 percent, Ron Paul has 19 percent and Rick Santorum 11. That gives Gingrich at least four delegates, Paul three and Santorum two. Eight are still to be determined
.  

More than 1,100 delegates are needed to win the Republican nomination. Romney has collected 97 so far.

This year's presidential and Congressional election has far greater stakes than the media reports, or most people think. It will impact the courts for decades to come. A second term for President Barack Obama would allow him to expand his replacement of Republican-appointedmajorities with Democratic ones on the nation's appeals courts, the final stop for almost all challenged federal court rulings. Despite his slow start in nominating judges and Republican delays in Senate confirmations, Obama has altered the balance of power on four of the nation's 13 circuit courts of appeals. Given a second term, Obama could have the chance to install Democratic majorities on several others. The next president, whether it's Obama or a Republican, also has a reasonable shot at transforming the majority on the Supreme Court, because three justices representing the closely divided court's liberal and conservative wings, as well as its center, will turn 80 before the next presidential term ends.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is calling for "friends of democratic Syria" to unite and rally against President Bashar Assad's regime.Speaking Sunday in the Bulgarian capital of Sofia, the day after Russia and China blocked U.N. Security Council action on Syria, Clinton said the international community had a duty to halt ongoing bloodshed and promote a political transition that would see Assad step down.

Previewing the possible formation of a group to coordinate assistance to the Syrian opposition, she said the "friends of Syria" could work together to promote those goals. Such a group could be similar, but not identical, to the Contact Group on Libya, which oversaw international help for opponents of the late deposed Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi.





The commander of a force of rebel Syrian soldiers says they have no choice now but to fight to free the country of President Bashar Assad's regime after Russia and China vetoed a U.N. resolution aimed at resolving the crisis. The commander of the Free Syrian Army says that the veto was a "strike against the Syrian people."

Egyptian officials say 43 NGO workers, including 19 Americans, have been referred to trial before a criminal court for allegedly being involved in banned activity and illegally receiving foreign funds. The decision on Sunday by investigating judges is likely to further sour relations between Egypt's military rulers and the United States, the Arab nation's chief western backer for more than 30 years. Beside the 19 Americans, there are also five Serbs, two Germans and three non-Egyptian Arab nationals among the 43.  The Americans include Sam LaHood, the head of the Egypt office of the Washington-based International Republican Institute and the son of  U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. A date has yet to be set for the start of the trial.

Queen Elizabeth marks 60 years on the throne tomorrow. Today, bundled in a brown coat and matching fur hat, the queen braved cold and snow to attend church on the eve of her Diamond Jubilee anniversary. Elizabeth ascended to the throne when her father, George VI, died on Feb. 6, 1952. She is the longest-serving monarch after Queen Victoria, who reigned for more than 63 years.

 At 25  a young actor published a story in the London newspaper, a work of fiction that later grew into "Oliver Twist". He became one of the greatest novelists of all time, and was deeply insecure.  He wrote constantly and quickly.  And he created nearly 1000 individually-named characters. He wrote fast, often in one draft, with edits hand written in later.  He traveled all the time with a supply of paper and a portable quill pen. He survived in a fatal train crash, after saving his mistress, her mother, several passengers and in a harrowing rescue of his final novel, from a train car hanging off a bridge over a ravine. He died of a stroke at the age of 58. The bicentennial of Charles Dickins birth is this Tuesday Feb. 7. 

LDS (Mormon) voters made up over quarter of  Republicans who turned out to give Mitt Romney a decisive victory in the Nevada Caucus's. Romney has now won three out of the first five contests, but is not as far ahead as most media presents when you look at electoral votes. The candidate move on to Colorado for Tuesday's caucus.

Talks on renegotiating Greece's privately held debt are supposed to be in their final stretch. Private banks are being asked to swap their bonds for paper worth less than half what the investors paid.  It will be hard to swallow...but the alternative is a chaotic Greek default when that debt comes due next month. At stake is the fate not just of the Euro, but of the Eurozone.

It will be hard to get Greeks to swallow more austerity measures even as the country remains on life-support through bailout loans. Unemployment has doubled in Greece in the last two years, nearing 20 percent.  And there are many Greeks with jobs who might as well be unemployed -- they haven't gotten paid for months. Some still show up for work every day, hoping that things will take a turn for the better. The employees of a struggling private TV station simply took over the station and are broadcasting demands for their money.  

The UN Security Council failed yesterday to pass a resolution aimed at stopping the escalating violence in Syria.  China and Russia vetoed the resolution despite days of high level negotiations - including behind the scenes efforts by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the US Ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice.  

Mobs attacked the Syrian embassy in the Australian Capital of Canberra. Australia has a large Muslim population due to trade relations with its neighbor, the worlds largest Muslim country, Indonesia.

Churches in New York City, which have held worship services in public schools, have one week left to find other spaces before a federally court ordered ban goes into effect.  The court last year ruled this use of school property violated the separation of church and state. Church groups can still rent the facilities but will not longer be able to hold a religious service of any kind. The common practice of church services in unused schools on Saturday or Sundays has gone without interruption for over 300 years, until now.

Last year, the oil rich Gulf nation of Qatar quietly purchased a painting by Paul Cezanne for more than 250 million dollars...the highest amount EVER paid for a work of art. The middle eastern oil country is quietly building a collection to rival Paris, New York and the great art collections of the world.
