    Sen. John McCain is right. Code Pink protesters are low-life scum as he called them Thursday morning when the group disrupted a Senate hearing to protest former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. Saddam Hussein, Ayatollah Khamenei, Fidel Castro, Raul Castro, al Qaeda in Mesopotamia, al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, Hamas, Hezbollah, the Muslim Brotherhood and the Taliban. These are some of the terrorists and state sponsors of terrorism Code Pink has given political, financial and/or material aid to since the group’s founding in late 2002. All that time Code Pink has also worked with and funded the Democratic Party,...

    For Immediate Release October 8, 2013 Federal Reserve Board Issues Redesigned $100 Note The Federal Reserve on Tuesday began supplying financial institutions with a redesigned $100 note that incorporates new security features to deter counterfeiters and help businesses and consumers tell whether a note is genuine. Distance, demand, and the policies of individual financial institutions will influence how quickly the redesigned notes reach businesses and consumers around the world. “The new design incorporates security features that make it easier to authenticate, but harder to replicate,” said Federal Reserve Board Governor Jerome H.

    N THE AFTERMATH of September 11, more than several former national security and intelligence officials fashioned new careers as critics of the Bush administration's war on terror. Among the more prominent of these former officials is Daniel Benjamin, who worked for the National Security Council from 1994 to 1999. Benjamin's criticism flows from his belief that prior to the war in Iraq, as he wrote in Time magazine earlier this year, "there was no pre-existing relationship between Baghdad and al-Qaeda." Still worse, the invasion of Iraq has made us "less safe" and "above all, the invasion and occupation of Iraq--have...

    A new video showing police inaction in the face of Arab rock attacks has caused anger among residents of the Binyamin region north of Jerusalem. The video was taken as an Arab gang attacked Israeli drivers who were stuck in traffic. A massive traffic jam forms daily between the Adam junction, just minutes north of Jerusalem, and the Hizme checkpoint at the entrance to the city. “We just sat there and got hit,” related one of the drivers. “We had no way to respond.” The video showed that it was not only the drivers who found themselves silent in the...

    As American post-conflict combat deaths in Iraq overtook the wartime number, the administration counseled patience. "The war on terror is a test of our strength. It is a test of our perseverance, our patience, and our will," President Bush told an American Legion convention. National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice embellished the message with what former White House speechwriters immediately recognize as a greatest-generation pander. "There is an understandable tendency to look back on America's experience in postwar Germany and see only the successes," she told the Veterans of Foreign Wars in San Antonio, Texas, on Aug. 25. "But as some...

    Brent Benjamin booted Justice Warren McGraw off the state Supreme Court Tuesday. With 1,616 of 1,965 precincts reporting, he outpolled the incumbent Democrat with 307,165 votes to 279,103. Benjamin said he will dedicate his 12-year term "to following the law of West Virginia" and "making certain everyone has a fair and equal opportunity for justice with no favoritism for any one group or individual." Benjamin rode to victory on the crest of an unprecedented wave of negative ads financed largely by Massey Energy Chief Executive Officer Don Blankenship. Blankenship estimated today that he dumped between $3 million and $3.5 million...

    A horde of the pink unwashed descended on Fox News' headquarters in New York City yesterday afternoon to hold a "Shut-up-athon" against the number one cable news outlet in America. Led by Code Pink, the leftist feminist group founded to oppose the war on Iraq, about a thousand demonstrators filled the sidewalk in front of Fox's building on 6th Avenue at 48th Street. Police were everywhere to keep order, which they did with great success. FReepers Coleus, Laserlock, ELS, Trueblackman, kristinn and two lurkers held a counter-demonstration there to support Fox News and to educate the public about Code Pink's...

    This year marks 225(older, but timeless article) years since our Founding Fathers gave us our National Birth Certificate. We continue to be the longest on-going Constitutional Republic in the history of the world. Blessings such as these are not by chance or accidental. They are blessings of God. On July 2, 1776, Congress voted to approve a complete separation from Great Britain. Two days afterwards — July 4th —the early draft of the Declaration of Independence was signed, albeit by only two individuals at that time: John Hancock, President of Congress, and Charles Thompson, Secretary of Congress. Four days later,...

    <p>ALBANY, N.Y. -- Michael Benjamin, a former Wall Street trader seeking the Republican U.S. Senate nomination, charged Tuesday that Gov. George Pataki and state GOP Chairman Alexander Treadwell are trying to block his candidacy, possibly because he is Hispanic. The little-known Benjamin made the charge in a news release that carried the headline: "Sign at GOP headquarters in Albany: Hispanics need not apply." In two telephone interviews with The Associated Press, Benjamin provided no evidence to support the anti-Hispanic claim, but argued "there is no other reason for them not to sit down with me."</p>

    November 10, 2003 He's Spoiling for a Chance to Take On Schumer By RAYMOND HERNANDEZ n New York Republican circles, Michael Benjamin has become a bit like the kid on the basketball court begging the other players to pass him the ball. Even as the party has all but given up any hope of finding a candidate who can beat New York's well-funded senior senator, Charles E. Schumer, next year, Mr. Benjamin has been trying to convince the party's leaders that he is the man for the job. Mr. Benjamin, 33, has put more than 40,000 miles on his Ford...

    BENJAMIN CALLS SCHUMER FAILURE TO OPPOSE PARTIAL-BIRTH ABORTION DISGRACEFUL New York, NY- United States Senate candidate Michael Benjamin (R-NY) today called Senator Charles E. Schumer's support of the barbaric partial-birth abortion procedure disgraceful. "I find it shocking and appalling that a senator from New York would support a procedure tantamount to infanticide," stated Benjamin. Partial-birth abortion, a procedure whereby a developed baby is partially delivered from the womb feet first, leaving just part of the head still within the mother, thus allowing an abortionist to thrust steel scissors into the back of the baby's head, removing the brain and collapsing...

    October 1, 2003 What the War Revealed By David Quinn In the run-up to the recent Gulf War, I received a letter from a reader of the Irish Catholic, for which I was at that point still editor, declaring that if I kept up my support for the United States’s position with regard to Iraq, I would find myself automatically excommunicated from the Church. I had previously heard of Catholics who supported the war being described as dissidents, but to say that such people could consider themselves excommunicated was to take things to a new level entirely. My reader’s reasoning...

    Ben Franklin comes to us almost too neatly packaged in a series of indelible images and unforgettable vignettes. He's the fellow on the hundred-dollar bill or the man Americans remember for flying a kite in an electrical storm. But recent scholarship, reflected in several new biographies and a well-received PBS special, reminds us of a richer, more complicated story behind the schoolbook images; more surprising, it makes a powerful case that Franklin was probably the most indispensable of the Founding Fathers. Begin in 1723, when the strapping, Boston-born apprentice arrives penniless in Philadelphia at age 17, having torn loose from...

    MICHAEL BENJAMIN CALLS ON SENATE ETHICS COMMITTEE TO INVESTIGATE SCHUMER CAMPAIGN FUND-RAISING PRACTICES. New York, NY - In a letter to the United States Senate Select Committee on Ethics, Republican Senate candidate Michael Benjamin today requested a formal investigation into the campaign fund-raising practices of Senator Charles E. Schumer of New York. This request stems from recent newspaper reports indicating a pattern of questionable fund-raising activities by Senator Schumer, as well as the massive fine imposed on him by the Federal Election Commission for taking illegal campaign contributions. On January 27, 2003, Senator Schumer accepted $47,000 from 30 employees of...
