    Everyone is asking the burning question: Why did The New York Times postpone its treason in publishing its NSA secrets when these leaks could have won the elections for their bosses, the Democrat Party?We certainly know it had nothing to do with any concerns about hurting our national security in the middle of a shooting war.Even The Times' own PR man felt obliged to (very publicly) upbraid his masters for this tragically missed opportunity, which we present courtesy of the New York Post [excerpted]: "Old Gay Gray Lady" publisher, Arthur "Pinch" Sulzberger Jr.Times' Own Ombudsman Rips 'Stonewalling' Paper By ANDY...

    U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the 2004 presidential election in which George Bush defeated John Kerry was invalid because none of the debates were conducted in Spanish. The ruling was hailed by former Mexican-American Legal Defense and Educational Fund attorney Thomas Saenz, who represented the plaintiffs. “Non-English-speaking voters must have the opportunity to participate in the entire electoral process, from beginning -- to end, in the voting booth,” said Saenz. The court cited the federal Voting Rights Act of 1965 as the basis for the decision. “We are a bilingual nation,” said Judge Susan Wynns. “Our elections...
  • Unliberal Left (Burt Prelutsky Chides Rich Democrats For Political Uncle Scrooge Miserliness Alert)

    I keep asking myself why, in spite of the encouraging reports out of Iraq, people such as Rep. Murtha want us to beat a hasty retreat, making the same sort of shameful exit we made out of Southeast Asia three decades ago, leaving our allies to the less than tender mercies of Pol Pot and the North Vietnamese. Why do these people seem to salivate every time an American soldier is killed doing his duty, as if hoping that when some magical number – 2,500? 3,000? – is reached, the American people will rise up and insist that we pull...
  • Kerry says he still wants to be president

    Senator John Kerry says losing last year's election hasn't soured him on wanting to be president. Asked if he wanted to run again in 2008, Kerry says it's too early to say. But he added: "Would I like to be president? Yes, obviously." Kerry made the comments today on C-N-N. The senator says he won't base his future presidential ambitions on whether other Democrats like Hillary Clinton join the race. During the interview, Kerry also said his vote authorizing President Bush to use military force was a mistake. He says he'd change his vote knowing what he does today.

    UPI ^ | November 3, 2005
    A formal complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission Thursday claims Sean "Diddy" Combs violated federal law during the U.S. presidential campaign. The National Legal and Policy Center, NPLC, claims Diddy violated the Federal Election Campaign Act and the Internal Revenue Service Code, when he rallied support of Democratic presidential candidate, Sen. John Kerry, reported. The NLPC alleges a Detroit rally conducted by Diddy's non-profit group, Citizen Change, included speeches from actor Leonardo DiCaprio and Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick urging the crowd to oust President Bush from office. The complaint asks the FEC to investigate whether Diddy used his...

    Do you think it’s easy being Teresa Heinz Kerry today? This is a sad weekend for the Beautiful People of Louisburg Square. Yesterday was the first anniversary of Sen. Liveshot Kerry’s grudging concession speech at Faneuil Hall, after he was narrowly defeated for the presidency by a mere 4 million votes. It’s been a sad year for the Kerrys and all their get-a-life, trust-funded supporters who refuse to remove the fading Kerry-Edwards bumper stickers. This week, New England Cable News reporter Alison King interviewed 67-year-old Mama T about life since the tragedy of Ohio. (They were robbed in the Buckeye...

    The tan-colored home in Shoreline shows signs of the times. A blue sign near the window reads, "Bush-Cheney." A large one near the front walkway declares, "Elect David Irons -- King County Executive." Ken Potts, a Vietnam War veteran and Shoreline resident, has become the target of vandalism aimed at his politics. An electronic display in an upstairs window scrolls these words in red: "Liberalism is a mental disorder." "That's a quote from Michael Savage," Ken Potts, the owner of the home, explains, referring to the strident talk radio personality. "He's a little right of me, but he comes up...

    October 5, 2005 -- THE producer at the center of last year's "Memogate" scandal at CBS News says she was derailed by a vast right-wing conspiracy. The producer, Mary Mapes, is one of four CBS staffers fired last January in the wake of the scandal. She is convinced she was the victim of a group of loosely associated Internet bloggers "with a harsh political bent" who pounced on CBS News minutes after the airing of the now-infamous Texas Air National Guard story on "60 Minutes 2" in September 2004... "Within a few minutes, I was online visiting Websites I had...

    As many of you might remember, the DUmmie FUnnies blog began with coverage of the DUmmie reaction to the forged Texas Air National Guard Memos presented on a the CBS 60 Minutes II show hosted by Dan Rather. At the time of the exposure, Dan Rather insisted the memos were really authentic. Rather kept INSISTING on the authenticity of those obviously forged memos even when it was proven beyond a shadow of doubt that they were fake. After Dan Rather retired was fired from CBS News, he changed his tune a bit by saying that even though the memos...

    I will vote against the nomination of John Roberts to serve as Chief Justice of the United States. I refuse to vote for a Supreme Court nominee who came before the Senate intent on demonstrating his ability to deftly deflect legitimate questions about his views, opinions and philosophy. If he is confirmed – and he may well be – the Roberts Court will shape the course of constitutional law for decades to come. It will decide dozens of cases that will define the depth and breadth of freedom in America – our commitment to civil rights, our dedication to civil...

    NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter) - Former CBS News anchor Dan Rather said Monday that there is a climate of fear running through newsrooms stronger than he has ever seen in his more than four-decade career. Rather famously tangled with President Nixon and his aides during the Watergate years while Rather was a hard-charging White House correspondent. Addressing the Fordham University School of Law in Manhattan, occasionally forcing back tears, he said that in the intervening years, politicians "of every persuasion" had gotten better at applying pressure on the conglomerates that own the broadcast networks. He called it a "new journalism...

    The Ohio secretary of state announced yesterday that a series of election-related constitutional amendments had qualified for the November ballot, including one intended to strip Republican elected officials of their control over drawing legislative districts. The amendments are sponsored by Reform Ohio Now, a coalition dominated by Democrats, unions and watchdog groups. It celebrated the announcement and said a statewide campaign to win approval in November had begun. "It's not like we're posting yard signs yet, but we're close to that," the campaign manager of Reform Ohio Now, Scarlett Bauder, said. "Right now the time is ripe for reform." The...

    Ten Good Reasons to Believe that the 2004 Presidential Election Was Stolen The question of what role election fraud played in determining the results of the 2004 Presidential election can be validly approached by consideration of either the total U.S. popular vote or the election results in Ohio. Ohio, because the addition of that state alone to John Kerry’s column would have given him an electoral victory. And the popular vote, because it is inconceivable that there was enough election fraud to switch the popular vote from Kerry to Bush without switching Ohio as well – given the relatively close...

Ed Morrissey and his legal consultant/reader Eric Costello shine renewed light on the Piquant buyout shell game here and here, previously explored by Leon H. at Macho Nachos. The Washington Times pounds the MSM and race hustlers' blackout in a new editorial today, "Air Scamerica." And in a fascinating little side development, a former Clear Channel official has been hired by...

    Canadians can put away those extra welcome mats -- it seems Americans unhappy about the result of last November's presidential election have decided to stay at home after all. In the days after President Bush won a second term, the number of U.S. citizens visiting Canada's main immigration Web site shot up sixfold, prompting speculation that unhappy Democrats would flock north. But official statistics show the number of Americans actually applying to live permanently in Canada fell in the six months after the election. On the face of it this is not good news -- Canada is one of the...
  • Dems in the Doldrums: The Party Still Hasn't Got its Act Together

    A meeting of the Democratic Leadership Council on Monday cast harsh light on the current crisis within the Democratic Party. It has at least four problems. One is that it lost the 2004 elections badly. The second is that its primary support organization, the labor movement, has just split. The third is that it has no obvious presidential candidate for 2008 and isn't showing much flair in trying to find one. The fourth is that, even though the Republicans don't have a presidential candidate yet either, they still present a relatively smooth phalanx in the field, based largely on their...
