    ation state--and a state involved in "ethnic cleansing." Pure propaganda! This is a brazen Big Lie. The largest practitioner of both gender and religious apartheid in the world is Islam or Islamism. Religious apartheid exists when the dominant state religion allows no other religion to exist and flourish. For example, Muslim countries do not allow churches to be built, Christian insignia to be displayed; Muslim mobs and governments destroy existing churches or convert them into mosques. Today, living Christians are persecuted, tortured and murdered in the name of Islam all across the Muslim world......Afghanistan was once a mainly Buddhist country...

    As Belgium and Europe mourned and condemned the senseless terrorism in Brussels, some officials in Moscow seem to be gloating. The first outcome of new terror attacks in the heart of Europe will be a more severe stance on the migrant crisis, a fresh debates over EU border controls, in particular those in the Schengen zone as well as a further rise of ultra-right parties in the EU countries. The extreme right wing politicians have already seized the opportunity to push anti-Muslim sentiment and this discourse divides Europe even more. The atmosphere of fear and division will also worsen social,...

    Washington (AFP) - US President Barack Obama on Thursday called on Middle Eastern leaders to stand up to "violent extremism" and stop proxy wars that fuel the rise of terror groups. "The notion that the West is at war with Islam is an ugly lie," he told the final day of a conference on combatting extremism. "And all of us, regardless of our faith, have a responsibility to reject it." Obama challenged Middle Eastern powers to stop actions that he claimed have stoked the rise of Islamic State, Al-Qaeda and others. Fighting between Sunnis and Shia "will only end when...

    If the scales of justice are unbalanced then they are no longer scales of justice but rather a measure of injustice in our legal system. If the Lady of Justice is not blind and impartial then she may be sighted and partial or prejudiced reflecting a deep rift in our social fabric. Justice was not done in Sanford Florida yesterday. A jury of six women, no Afro-Americans and no males, acquitted George Zimmerman of 2nd degree murder and manslaughter. This was a trial that may never have been heard since the Sanford Police Department released George Zimmerman February 2012 after...

But we reject the belief that America must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future," Obama said. They...

    There's a good reason why O was opposed to classifying the mandate as a tax. Once it's a tax, it's subject to all sorts of equal protection clauses. IOW, DHS cannot willy-nilly issue waivers for non-compliance to favored political groups, etc. It's not to say that waivers & exceptions cannot be issued. They can, but they must come from specific actions undertaken by Congress. Consider how non-profits are treated under present income tax laws. Their preferred tax treatment is not determined by the executive/IRS, but rather specific laws passed by Congress. How about differences in form/type of income/wages? Are Senators...

The chiefs told the attorney general that having to determine whether a person is in the United States illegally will break down the trust that police have built in communities and will divert law enforcement resources away from fighting crime. If that happens, "we will be unable to do our jobs," said Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck. "Laws like this will actually increase...

Intensely worried about their personal finances and medical expenses, Americans nonetheless appear realistic about the time Obama might need to turn things around, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll. It shows most Americans consider their new president to be a strong, ethical and empathetic leader who is working to change Washington. Nobody knows how long...

Recently, we are being confronted with the bizarre phenomenon of defenders of Western freedoms, including Jews, being demonized as ďNazis,Ē while subsequently Nazi methods are used to eliminate them.

But a big part of that history is being concealed. Hundreds of pages of memos and correspondence involving the healthcare plan of the early 1990s have been withheld, leaving a gap in a historic period when Clinton undertook one of the most ambitious domestic policy forays ever attempted. Some of the records kept from public view are memos from the early 1990s that White House aides wrote to Clinton about members of...

    Democrats are wielding a heavy hand on the House Rules Committee, committing many of the procedural sins for which they condemned Republicans during their 12 years in power. So far this year, Democrats have frequently prevented Republicans from offering amendments, limited debate in the committee and, just last week, maneuvered around chamber rules to protect a $23 million project for Rep. John P. Murtha (D-Pa.). On Wednesday, Democrats suggested changing the House rules to limit the minority's right to offer motions to recommit bills back to committee -- violating a protection that has been in place since 1822.

    It is said that a big lie can work if it is repeated often enough. For weeks, leading Democrats have been hammering away at the Big Lie that George W. Bush lied about weapons of mass destruction in Saddam Hussein's Iraq. Starting on Veterans Day, Bush, Dick Cheney, and others in the administration embarked on a "pushback," arguing that Bush--and many leading Democrats, including some now part of the Big Lie campaign--accurately characterized the intelligence at the time. Bush, Cheney, and the administration have the truth on their side. Exhaustive and authoritative examinations of the prewar intelligence, by the bipartisan...

    Vice President Cheney: "What we're hearing now is some politicians contradicting their own statements and making a play for political advantage in the middle of a war. The saddest part is that our people in uniform have been subjected to these cynical and pernicious falsehoods day in and day out. American soldiers and Marines are out there every day in dangerous conditions and desert temperatures Ė conducting raids, training Iraqi forces, countering attacks, seizing weapons, and capturing killers Ė and back home a few opportunists are suggesting they were sent into battle for a lie. The President and I cannot...

    Senator Flip-Flop's Response: 11/11/2005 John Kerry Responds to George Bush's Veterans Day Political Attacks John Kerry issued the following statement from Boston, where earlier today he participated in a Veterans Day tribute to America's veterans and active duty armed forces. "I wish President Bush knew better than to dishonor America's veterans by playing the politics of fear and smear on Veterans Day. Instead of trying to salvage his slumping political fortunes, the Commander in Chief should honor our men and women in uniform with a clear strategy for success in Iraq. But this Administration abandoned that path long ago,...
  • Jimmy Carter: Gore beat Bush in 2000 (Uber Barf and Sore Loser Alerts)

    Five years after the controversial 2000 presidential election, ex-President Jimmy Carter now says he's certain Al Gore defeated George W. Bush. "Well I would say that in the year 2000, the country failed abysmally in the presidential election process," Carter told a panel Monday at American University in Washington, D.C. "There's no doubt in my mind that Al Gore was elected president."

    Karl Rove? Please. I couldn't care less. This week finds me thousands of miles from the Beltway in what I believe the ABC World News Tonight map designates as the Rest Of The Planet, an obscure beat the media can't seem to spare a correspondent for. But even if I was with the rest of the navel-gazers inside the Beltway I wouldn't be interested in who ''leaked'' the name of CIA employee Valerie Plame to the press. As her weirdly self-obsesssed husband Joseph C. Wilson IV conceded on CNN the other day, she wasn't a ''clandestine officer'' and, indeed, hadn't...

  • Fittingly, Kerry Campaign Ending on a Big Lie - And It Will Be His Downfall

    How fitting is it that the Kerry campaign is going to crash and burn in this last week because they made a huge deal out of an outright lie by the New York Times and CBS in an effort to defeat the President? Really, it just couldn't have happened any other way. There's an old saying about stuff like this. We're not sure if it's Buddhist, Confucianism or what, and it goes something like this - "Karma's a Bitch". For the last 2 years or so the left wing America-haters have been spouting lie after ridiculous lie about George Bush....

    QUINCY, Fla. ó Many of Florida's 1 million black voters still feel cheated that their votes weren't counted in the state's flawed election four years ago. But for some, such as those here in rural Gadsden County, that bitter memory has elicited a surge of activism in the 2004 presidential race. The Panhandle county, overwhelmingly Democratic and nearly 60% black, has its first African American elections supervisor traveling to schools and churches to demonstrate new ballot-reading machines. County officials have added 10 polling locations and will send a sample ballot to the home of every registered voter, rather than just...

    The New York Times September 28, 2004 Prewar Assessment on Iraq Saw Chance of Strong Divisions By DOUGLAS JEHL and DAVID E. SANGER WASHINGTON, Sept. 27 - The same intelligence unit that produced a gloomy report in July about the prospect of growing instability in Iraq warned the Bush administration about the potential costly consequences of an American-led invasion two months before the war began, government officials said Monday. The estimate came in two classified reports prepared for President Bush in January 2003 by the National Intelligence Council, an independent group that advises the director of central intelligence. The assessments...
