    If you listen to terrestrial radio, and live in the San Francisco Bay Area, north of San Jose, you most likely have heard of KSFO AM. Last weekend, the managers of that radio station decided to fire weekend talk host Barbara Simpson suddenly and for most listeners shocklingly. Barbara was affiliated with that station for over nineteen years, since it's inception as a conservative leaning radio station. This was a few years after Rush Limbaugh show everyone that conservatives could appeal to a large portion of the population. Some local blogs, such as richlieberman 415media have been flooded with posters...

    Conservative talk radio is like a big pot of soup filled with chunks of carrots, potatoes, celery, tomatoes, corn and whatever other vegetables were tossed in. Each personality is different, but they contribute to the overall flavor. Liberal talk radio is a similar pot of soup with the same ingredients but it's been pureed. There are no lumps, and it all looks the same – bland with no personality. It's no surprise then that conservatives get attention and criticism from the political opposition, which doesn't like to be confronted with differing thoughts and ideas. Political correctness clashes with reasoned opinions....

    The Senate vote on immigration failed. The issue is dead. Or is it? No, it isn't – and Americans better not be complacent about it. The politicians will be back with another version, regardless of which party wins the next election. Locally, the same mentality prevails to circumvent law, logic and morals on the part of politicians, activist groups and churches and the media are cheerleaders. Example: Front page, Contra Costa Times in Northern California, July 11. Complete with intentionally emotional pictures, it described a 1.3-square mile area on one street in Concord with 91 apartment complexes housing some 38,000...

    Why am I not surprised? While Washington is roiled in the divisiveness of the immigration/amnesty bill, the pencil pushers are working on the building of "THE FENCE"! I'm talking about the fence that's supposed to be built along the Mexican border to cut down the number of illegal aliens sneaking into this country every day. Well, it's not really a fence, as any normal person would imagine. This is a new-fangled one. It's a high-tech "fence" that depends on towers, radar, cameras, video terminals, detectors and all kinds of technology – so much in fact, that Border Patrol agents will...

    We're in the middle of a domestic immigration war, and it's a classic. The blind are leading the blind. The selectively deaf are leading the selectively deaf. Their enemy is the electorate. They march onto the Washington congressional battlefield with the banner of their leader, George W. Bush, flapping in the wind.

    "DRIP on all politicians." That's the advice of my buddy and top, long-time, now retired, San Francisco talk host, Jim Eason. He said it for years, never changing his opinion. DRIP = "Don't Return Incumbent Politicians," – one term, and they're out. I'm there. In fact, I'm hard pressed to keep my language decent after watching people elected to protect this country work so hard to sell us out by trying to push through the deceptively named Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2007. No matter how it's painted, the proposed law is amnesty for people who came here illegally and...

Who knows what torment he endured before he died; he and two other soldiers were ambushed and taken prisoner May 12. His buddies are still missing. Pvt.

    The gaggle of senators announced the immigration compromise with glee. I feel I've been punched in the gut and that my country is being stolen from me by elected government officials. They say it will solve the "immigration" problem but it's amnesty, no matter how they sugarcoat it. If this abomination passes, the country as we know it is lost. It grants instant legal status to the 12 to 20 MILLION illegals in this country now; no one knows how many, and they're not all from Mexico. We have illegals here from more than one hundred countries, including Communist China...

Oriana Fallaci was outspoken, courageous, dedicated, talented, passionate and honest – in her personal life and in her writings as a journalist, reporter and novelist. And now she's gone. The call, early Friday morning, brought me the news I dreaded. Oriana Fallaci had died at 3 a.m. in a private clinic in the city of her birth, Florence, Italy. She was 77. She is survived by siblings and their children. I cried. I felt I knew her...

    If you were to believe the picture presented by the media, you would think South Africa is a political, economic, cultural and social utopia. After all, the media picture goes, apartheid is gone, Nelson Mandela is free, blacks are in charge and all's well. Things are as they should be. Well, not exactly. In fact, things in that physically beautiful and natural-resource rich country are pretty rocky, but so much is at stake in preserving the image of order and peace that the realities are ignored on the world stage, especially in the United States. But there may be a...

    What do people think about the rioting and destruction in France? It's hard to say because beyond some "good pictures" of torched cars and firemen and police trying to deal with an out-of-control situation, we aren't getting the whole – much less the real – story. For the third continuous week, a good part of France is in flames and wilding mobs in the streets have wreaked havoc on business areas and neighborhoods. The whole country is the victim of wanton violence and destruction. From a news-coverage point of view, what do we get? Not much – not much accuracy...

    Massive slaughter is old hat for Africa. Living beings mowed down for no good reason with automatic weapons or slashed with machetes. Rivers of blood and bloated bodies. This time, it's not dead people. This time, it's animals, beginning with big game. Since the usual reaction of the rest of the world to African bloodbaths is to ignore it or to '"tsk tsk" that nothing was done soon enough, it's not surprising that the current slaughter in Zimbabwe is virtually ignored in the media and the West. For lovers of African wildlife – giraffes, lions, elephants, hippos, antelopes, cheetahs and...

Where's the sense of urgency about protecting the security of Americans in this country from terrorists? In December, President Bush signed an updated intelligence law, which, among other things, tightens border security by requiring anyone entering this country, from anywhere, to have a passport. Two weeks ago, his administration announced the new guidelines. Then, last week, he said he "read in the newspaper about the need to have passports" and – we're told – he said, "What's going on here?" The comments were...

Her father, Robert Schindler, calls it "judicial homicide." It's more than that. If Terri's feeding...

    It must run in the family – it's genetic. Remember the "Read my lips, no more taxes" line delivered with political sincerity by the first President George Bush – and famously ignored with the same sincerity? Now his son, the president, has done the same thing. The question is, when a president says it, is it a lie? You decide. On Dec. 17, 2004, President George Bush signed the National Intelligence Reform Act. The law included the requirement that 10,000 Border Patrol agents would be added over five years – that's 2,000 per year. In addition, the legislation also...

It's a sure thing, this didn't just happen. I don't believe for a minute, this wasn't planned and executed with cunning to cause disruption in the military and in American minds. Like a cat toying with a mouse, I think we've been had. The issue deals with a 24-year-old Muslim man – a member of the...

    Let's stop beating around the bush. Why keep pretending we're a sovereign country? We are, of course – on paper. But in practice, despite the troops in uniform, the high sounding rhetoric of politicians and pundits, the flags on high and our history of defending liberty – we're giving it all away and no one seems to care. I'll take that back. I care and I'll bet most Americans care, but the powers that be, our elected officials, don't pay much attention to us. They only want our vote every two or four years and, of course, they want our...

    Not that they cared, but the barbaric Muslims, who wave the religious banner of Islam with each murderous act, took more than the life of Paul M. Johnson Jr. They brutally kidnapped, tortured and ultimately coldly – and no doubt with militant Islamic pride – slaughtered an innocent man. They don't care. Vice President Dick Cheney said we'll hunt the killers "one by one, and destroy them." Wrong. "One by one" won't do it, because it'll turn into a case of Islamic Terrorist Whack-A-Mole and death is their ticket to paradise. An al-Qaida website provided photographic proof: the bloodied body...

    I couldn't attend the Reagan ceremonies, so I did the next best thing: I watched the live TV coverage of the events honoring the life and death of former President Ronald Wilson Reagan. I wanted a variety of coverage. But I dropped the hope of "variety" quickly as I realized that mainstream media couldn't resist petty partisanship and historical revisionism. CNN went on about how Mr. Reagan really didn't have much to do with the fall of the Soviet Union. ABC's Peter Jennings reminded us that Simi Valley was home to the white police involved in the Rodney King scandal....

    I am sick of ridiculous federal court rulings and I'm angry. It's about abortion, unborn babies and court rulings beyond "wrong." I know. Nothing today is "wrong." Nothing is a "lie." Anything goes because limitations offend people. The "offendee" can force others to eliminate the "offense." In fact, offending someone is the worst sin of all. Oops. Sorry. No such thing as "sin" either. It's so hard to know what's right and wrong.Uh oh. Sorry, again. There is no right and wrong. If it feels good, sounds good and offends no one – do it. No one will stop you,...

    I'm proud to be an American? Are you? It's an appropriate question as we celebrate Memorial Day because this holiday honors our military men and women who gave their lives for their country. Our country. My country. It's an appropriate question every time we celebrate this holiday, but perhaps even more so this year as we're being racked by hateful rhetoric. It runs the gamut from derision of the president and his administration, to denunciation of the war in Iraq, to vilification of anything and everything this country stands for or has ever done. It's a wide range of hate...

    No apologies here because of a news story about a 16-term congressman that got national coverage – I'm glad it did since it was because of me, it became newsworthy and got media play! Between May 6 and 12, you heard about a California congressman who cussed out a constituent, who's also a staff sergeant in the California Army National Guard. The story started on KSFO radio in San Francisco, was then heard on Rush Limbaugh's syndicated radio program, seen on San Francisco area NBC-TV news and covered in local newspapers. Then it was reported on stations across the country,...

    Be honest: If I showed you those infamous pictures of goofing-off soldiers and naked men, what would you think? Be honest. You'd think it was a fraternity hazing, soft-porn joking around – maybe "dirty French postcards." Does that offend you – that people can have fun in soft-porn activities? It shouldn't. There are pictures equally as offensive in fashion magazines, in music videos, on cable television and certainly, in your friendly, neighborhood movie theatre. It's part of the culture – in fact, part of the world those young soldiers (male and female) inhabit. You inhabit it, too, even if you...

    > Karen Majewski, City Council President of Hamtramck, Mich., said, it has "very little to do with" the town. "It has to do with change." Uh oh. People of belief, especially Christians, are enduring "change" – with the intentional removal of every speck of prayer and religion from our schools, textbooks, courthouses, government, military, town squares, commerce, the media, entertainment, music – whatever and wherever it might be found. So how do you explain Hamtramck, Mich.? It's perfectly clear that no matter where it is, how it's portrayed or what its role, the very existence of belief sets atheist and...

Israel, 24x7."All the headlines about Israel are filled with attacks, injuries, deaths, Byzantine politics, treaties, conflict and controversy. But is that the real picture of the country and the people? It's a part of it, no doubt, but, like anything, headlines tell only part of the story. What would you do if you wanted to tell another part of the story? What would you do if you wanted to put...

    The tactic worked. They attacked the innocent – brutalized, killed and strung them up. No, this isn't the Crucifixion or "The Passion" movie. It's about Iraq's terrorists. They killed four civilian workers, burned them, brutalized their bodies and hung them before the cameras to be viewed around the world. They're doing it again, taking hostages and threatening death and mutilation. Now, it's an American civilian, Thomas Hamill, being threatened with torture and death. Kidnapped Japanese face threats of burning alive along with kidnapped Israelis, Italians and others. Threats, too, of cannibalism. The terrorists know what they're doing and what they...

    Col. J.C. Coleman, chief of staff for the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force in Iraq, said "We were going to roll in there all quiet like the fog." But they didn't. Col. Michael Walker, a Marine civil-affairs commander, said "Should we have sent in a tank so we could have gotten, with all due respect, four dead bodies back?" Damn right, they should have gotten those four dead bodies back. Those four dead bodies in Fallujah were the bodies of former military men, three Navy Seals and one Army Ranger. I guess they don't count because they were civilians. Col....

    It must be some form of insanity. In the year 2004, the U.S. Senate is defining what's growing in the uterus of a pregnant woman. And it did, in the Unborn Victims of Violence Act: "d) As used in this section, the term 'unborn child' means a child in utero, and the term 'child in utero' or 'child, who is in utero' means a member of the species homo sapiens, at any stage of development, who is carried in the womb." We knew that. When a woman is pregnant, she's going to have a baby. Not a puppy or a...

     Brutal, bloody and thin-skinned "The Passion of the Christ" I said, "is a Roman Catholic movie, made by Catholics for Catholics, presenting the distinctly Catholic view of Biblical record of the crucifixion. From its title, which is distinctly Roman Catholic, (no one else calls Jesus, "the Christ" except in the expression, "the Christ child,") to its content, emphasizing Mary's role, it is Roman Catholic."It is not possible to criticize this movie without it directly or indirectly criticizing Catholic doctrine or sentiment. Therefore, according to Roman Catholics, you are not suppose to criticize this movie, because that is, ipso facto, Catholic...

Nooooo – not that word! What they are full of is cynicism, anti-Christian bias, liberal politics, hatred of Catholics and their Church, and in many cases, atheism. They hate any religion. It's not usually so blatant, but this case has all the elements. Critics, reviewers and self-appointed spokesmen for groups have an agenda and they put it before integrity. You have to search for an honest review of Gibson's film and...
