    Houston Chronicle ^ | Aug. 13, 2007, 6:55AM | KEVIN MORAN
    A bullet blasted through a Plexiglas window at KPFT radio early this morning, missing a woman's head by about 18 inches, said general manager Duane Bradley. The bullet was fired while another staff member was talking to three people at the station's front door, about 12 feet from the smashed window, Bradley said. The station is located in the 400 block of Lovett. No one was injured in the shooting, Bradley said. Bradley said the sometimes-controversial station airs blues, folk and other types of music as well as "alternative" programming about gay and lesbian issues and a program geared toward...

    Mayor Bloomberg says the city "acted appropriately" while arresting and holding thousands of people during the Republican convention. I beg to differ. I wasn't even a demonstrator - I was going for a drink with a friend when I was arrested - and my experience tells a different story. It was Tuesday, Aug. 31, about 8:30 p.m. when my friend and I saw a lot of cops running on 26th St., then up Park Ave. South. I saw a man being handcuffed who said he had done nothing. The cop was using a lot of force, and I asked him...

    NEW YORK - Out on the street with protesters, there are environmentalists, pacifists, even some capitalists - selling anti-Bush T-shirts, of course.      But to Republicans here, the great unwashed sweating in and blocking the streets, are defined in one word: Democrats.      ``Frankly it reminds me of why I left the Democratic Party,'' said former Bush spokesman Ari Fleischer. ``I used to be a Democrat and I turned instead to Ronald Reagan's upbeat optimism instead of the negativity and the liberalism and the protest movement of the Democratic Party. It wasn't my cup of tea.''      Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie...

    Burning Man, infamous for its drug-fueled debauchery in the wind- whipped Nevada desert, may seem like the last place to haul the kids for a family vacation. But the annual experiment in radical self-expression, communal living and massive interactive art is becoming something of a counterculture Disneyland as increasing numbers of Burners from the Bay Area and beyond are bringing their young ones to Black Rock City. To the uninitiated, a dry lakebed in the middle of nowhere -- plagued by dust storms and extreme temperatures and inhabited by no small number of naked people -- sounds like no place...

    Protesters have been targeting government and corporate websites for years. But when online activists strike at Republican domains during the G.O.P.'s convention later this month, the digital demonstrations might turn out to be more than symbolic, for once. In the past, activists have been able to shut down the website of, say, the World Economic Forum for a few hours. But the impact of such a takedown was nebulous at best: It's hard to argue the organization really suffered from a few-hour lag in posting its press releases online. In this year's presidential race, however, campaign websites have moved beyond...

An open promoter of violence, Watson declares there's "nothing wrong with being a terrorist, as long as you win."

    The Santa Cruz anarchists who rent basement space from the Resource Center for Nonviolence have been told to leave. The reason? A clash of philosophies, said Kyle Sirman, at the Anarchist Infoshop. Incompatibility, said Bob Fitch, a Resource Center official. The anarchists have ``been unable to create a continuity of safe and welcoming atmosphere,'' said Fitch, who manages the property. But Sirman said Fitch told the group there was too much traffic and not enough personal hygiene. Some of the complaints, Sirman quoted Fitch as saying, ``had to do with us smelling.'' The Resource Center sells books and bumper stickers,...

    Liberalism Is Unpatriotic Kyle Williams During the dead heat of this election year, sharp criticism is in the air against President Bush, and this being a post-war time, critics are out in further attacks over the legitimacy of the war in Iraq. In return, these critics are being attacked by conservatives and by the administration; thus an all-out political war is ongoing. These critics must concur with Hillary Clinton, who, in April 2003, shouted out to a group of supporters, "I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration somehow...

    ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The comedian David Cross once remarked that our country must be in trouble because we have to read other countries' newspapers to find out what is going on in our own nation. Last Saturday, community activists convened at a small house on the west side of Ann Arbor, Mich., to witness video footage compiled by independent journalists of the police brutality at the Free Trade Agreement of the Americas conference in Miami last month. The footage, and the lack of media exposure of what actually happened, is living proof that our country's media is currently divorced...

He will also observe a bizarre political marriage: one between the remnants of the Marxist-Leninist Left and militant Islamists. Negotiated over the past two years, the "wedding," will be celebrated in a mass demonstration against Bush's visit.

    WASHINGTON - Next week will see the second anniversary of the September 11 attacks on the United States, which also spawned a whole new branch in international anti-Semitism. A survey published this week by the Anti-Defamation League finds that "hateful conspiracy theories" - claiming that Jews and Israel were behind the attacks in which 3,000 people were killed - are still being disseminated. In fact, these theories are gaining strength rather than dying out. "The 9/11 attacks have fueled an entire new genre of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories leading to an environment where rumors about Jews are finding acceptance in the...

The latest comes courtesy of Condoleezza Rice, the President's national security chief and a woman who, in any other circumstances, would have been out on her ear, but in this clueless administration maintains a highly visible role. Speaking before the National Association of Black Journalists, her latest outrage is accusing critics of the President's war policy of "racism." Invoking the history of the civil rights movement, and the 1963 bombing of a black church in Birmingham, Alabama, Condi's rendition of Al Sharpton's race-baiting act was even...

The U.S. Department of the Treasury said in a March letter to Faith Fippinger that she broke the law by crossing the Iraqi border before the war. Her travel to Iraq violated U.S. sanctions that prohibited American citizens from engaging in "virtually all direct or indirect commercial, financial or trade transactions with Iraq."

It had been banned by station management in 1993, after a long, hard-fought pressure campaign to remove it.  Afrikan Mental Liberation Weekend typically includes claims that the Jews disproportionately participated in the slave trade and persecuted blacks; in the past, he responded to criticism by calling the regional director of the Anti-Defamation League a "psychotic, idiotic, European Jew."   He has regularly played tapes by Nation of...

The keynote speaker at the conference was Umar Ibrahim Vadillo, leader of the worldwide Muslim group known as Murabitun. The group is strongly opposed to capitalism.

    <p>Volunteers are needed to help support the Republican Party in New York for the upcoming Presidential Election. The lunatic fringe elements on the Left, who do not believe in the open discussion of ideas, will stop at nothing to disrupt the Republican Convention. We need good old fashioned Conservatives, the kind that believe in God, Country, and Family (the Mom and Dad kind), the kind that played football, baseball, and basketball, to help with security. This is totally separate from the organized Convention. We will meet the groups determined to disrupt the open discussion of ideas (the Convention) with a group of our own and battle them in the streets of New York if that's what it takes. We will get in their way and see if they have balls to move us. The republican convention, like the Democratic convention, is a 'Forum" for ideas. It is the democratic way of spurring debate in this Country. The protesters seek to eliminate that debate. They may state otherwise, but like everything else that comes from their filthy mouths, it's a lie. They say they merely wish to be heard. Then go out and get yourself some candidates and put together a Party...and be heard. Last I know, the "Green Party", "Environmental Party", and "Socialists' Party" are still alive and kicking. Why doesn't the Left just tell the Country (Honestly) what it stands for? Because they know that no one would vote for them. As always, the Left reveals the worst about itself at election time. The left is intolerrant. The Left is hateful. Look on any college campus and you will see how the Left feels about free speech...they don't like it. Volunteer for this worthy effort and I promise you will see some action. Are you ready to defend the right to free speech in this Country. The right for Conventioneers, who have paid the fees to gather and debate, to have that debate free of the anarchists and terrorists on the Left, than join with me in leading a defense against these marauding hordes. Let us meet them in the streets and show them who is Right!</p>

    July 4, 2003 | "Slander" is defined in Bouvier's Law Dictionary as "a false defamation (expressed in spoken words, signs, or gestures) which injures the character or reputation of the person defamed." The venerable American legal lexicon goes on to note that such defamatory words are sometimes "actionable in themselves, without proof of special damages," particularly when they impute "guilt of some offence for which the party, if guilty, might be indicted and punished by the criminal courts; as to call a person a 'traitor.'" So how appropriate it is that in the rapidly growing Ann Coulter bibliography, last year's...

    To the editor: "Whenever the nation is under attack, from within or without, liberals side with the enemy," writes Ann Coulter in her new book, "Treason," subtitled "Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terrorists." Wrong. Our nation is presently "under attack from within" by the group known as PNAC, the "Project for the New American Century,"[1] which now inhabits the Bush White House. Liberals are certainly not siding with this enemy. The progressive movement desperately is attempting to defend the U.S. constitution from this menace. Desperate because the White House and both houses of Congress have...

    The nature of conservative politics is very much of the status quo, the standards set by society for itself and which is harshly regulated by the establishment and by the right. Anything outside of the "normal" is to be destroyed, looked down upon, or forgotten. Only one culture is acceptable to the conservative and to the right, the culture, of course, of the that group. All others are unimportant and wrong. Look at the obviously pro-capitalist stance taken by most, if not all, conservatives. It is the viewpoint that only what is good for me and my own is good...

    A recent editorial in a local paper asked the question 'Why is peace a dirty word'? It was the usual leftist rant about freedom of speech should have no consequences.

He seems concerned with the rejection expressed by most Americans to the overtures of various “peace” protesters and can’t understand...
  • Sponsored By Communists? Did We Win The Cold War?

    As the coalition forces bring freedom and a government of the people to Iraq much light is being shed on some of the things that have taken place, and are taking place here in the United States. Some of the things being spotlighted in the media are the peace protests. They are relentless in their conviction to the movement although the reasons for their involvement are as personally disarrayed as anything that has ever been seen. They are a rag-tag group comprised of ex-hippies from the 1960's who are grasping at a piece of their youth to young college students...

    Second Thoughts By: William W. Lawrence 04/15/2003 We hear so much about young Americans -- teenagers and early 20s -- who give Americans a bad name. Then we watch our young GIs and our chest swells with pride.They were freeing an oppressed people while naked women, transvestites, dogs, dancers and singers joined Harry Belafonte in an antiwar protest to "praise the patriotism of the demonstrators" and condemn the military action in Iraq."We denounce governments that act with tyranny," Mr. Belafonte told the crowd. He was talking about our government, not Saddam Hussein's. Listen, there were always war protesters.I was a...

    Anti-War Groups Fear Loss of Momentum By JEFF DONN .c The Associated Press Anti-war groups are quickly reshaping their tactics for a postwar era, but they fear the huge movement they forged over the last several months will inevitably lose steam as the fighting winds down in Iraq. ``Everybody has paused for a moment,'' said Mary Ellen McNish, head of the Americans Friends Service Committee, a branch of the pacifist Quaker church. ``We're trying to make sure we're doing the right thing at the right time.'' With near unanimity, anti-war organizers say they will carry through with demonstrations already arranged...
  • The only good american is a dead one? You guys have to freep this site.

    In the thread, "Oil for White People! Woohoo, Dead Iraqi Children Now!", there is a poster whose name is "The Only Good American is a Dead One." I'm not kidding. Most of the other threads are filled with similar venom. If you don't want to bother, I understand as obviously these people are far beyond all hope but there don't seem to be too many, so I figured it could be fun to freep anyway.

    Who are the real, useful idiots? Brent Flynn Practically Rational So the Lenins of the world think the anti-war protestors are nothing more than unpatriotic, ill-informed stooges of brutal dictators everywhere. Useful idiot is the term commonly used by right wing ideologues to describe the naïve peaceniks that are supposedly giving aid and comfort to Saddam Hussein by opposing the impending invasion of Iraq. Instead of characterizing the marchers as ordinary, loyal Americans who decided to get off their duffs for once and speak out against what they see as an unprovoked invasion of a weak country, the marchers...

    Madison Isthmus | April 3,2003 | Charles J Sykes
    Last Thursday a “peace” rally in Madison drew 200 to 300 people, carrying signs that said “Sociologists for Peace,” and “Drop Bush, Not Bombs.” Apparently, it was peaceful until demonstrators began burning Army recruitment pamphlets outside a recruitment center. Afterward the protesters complained about the police use of pepper spray. In Iraq, soldiers were putting on chemical suits in a howling sandstorm. I’m reminded of the sign I saw the other day that said “Imagine Peace.” Reading it, I think: “Pretend Peace.” Some people pretend. Others make it happen. At last weekend’s protests, demonstrators staged die-ins, smearing their faces with...
  • Leftist Establishment Whitewashes Stalinists

    03/31/2003 2:25:52 PM PST · by Free ThinkerNY · 16 replies · 347+ views Monday, March 31, 2003 Leftist Establishment Whitewashes Stalinists The dire warnings in George Orwell’s "1984” are alive and well in the U.S.A. The leftist establishment is downplaying the word "communist” if not wiping it from the vocabulary. Having been embarrassingly wrong all along about Soviet and worldwide communist intentions during the Cold War, the "respected” pillars of academia and communications are ignoring communist pasts or prettying up the records of campus speakers and old hard-line leftists who die. In Sunday’s Washington Times, Arnold Beichman writes that Columbia University had invited Eric Hobsbawm, whom the university describes as a "noted...
  • Protests continue amid looming war **BONUS PHOTO ESSAY ON 'PEACE' RIOTS**

    Protests around the world, calls for peace, and arrests dominated anti-war demonstrations amid a looming U.S.-led war on Iraq. About 150 people rallied in front of the U.S. Capitol Monday to protest a possible war and a third of them were arrested. The demonstration was organized by the Iraq Pledge of Resistance, a coalition of groups and individuals who pledged to take part in civil disobedience to protest the possible war. Max Buszewski, a member of the Pledge for Resistance and the American Friends Service Committee, said that as a possible war draws near, additional civil disobedience was planned. He...

Some children involved are 7 to 9 years of age. Here is a letter written to a friend of mine from the Maine Army National Guard: "Thank you for your interest on this most troubling matter. Our Family Assistance Centers have reported cases from Aroostook County to Southern Maine. We are reluctant to give out specific schools and the individuals involved in the interest...
