  • Mother Mary Lange, foundress of the First Black Religious Order in the USA

    Mother Mary Elizabeth Lange, OSP     The early years of Mother Mary Elizabeth Lange, the foundress of the Oblate Sisters of Providence, have been delineated more by oral tradition than by anything else. Elizabeth was born in the 1780s, a native of the Caribbean where havoc was constantly being created by both weather and the will of man. Her country of birth is not documented but oral tradition says she was born in Haiti and moved with her family to Santiago, Cuba.  She received an excellent education and in the early 1800s Elizabeth left Cuba and settled in the United States. By 1813, Providence directed her to Baltimore, Maryland where a...

    ‘David Frum’s Diary in National Review ^ | January 17, 2005 | David Frum
    -snip- The story is going around Washington that Senate Foreign Relations chairman Richard Lugar handed Condoleezza Rice a list of names of “neocons” he wanted blacklisted from the Department of State — and that Rice assented. If the story is true, you can see how it might signal unscrupulous present and former CIA officials to go even further — even to the extent of jeopardizing secret missions. In the first term, administration policymakers again and again failed to agree on a coherent policy, failed to explain that policy to the public, and failed to impose it on the bureaucracy. Disunity...
  • Dems Fear DeLay Blacklist For K Street Jobs and DeLay's Sizzling Response to "The Hill" Story

    The Hill ^ | 11/16/04 | Geoff Earle
    Scores of soon-to-be-unemployed Democrats fear that their party’s electoral defeat could hinder their ability to find work on K Street, a traditional safe haven and source of employment for Capitol Hill staff. At a time when many Democrats are anxious about their ability to earn a living, some even fear that a conspiracy to blacklist aides to certain Democrats, such as Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle (D-S.D.), could be afoot. Daschle, who is reviled by many congressional Republicans for his efforts to stop GOP initiatives and judicial nominees in the Senate, was defeated in this month’s election by former Rep....

    A former professor at Monroe Community College says he was fired because he showed his support for President Bush.  Dr. Michael Filozof says he was fired from his job as a political science professor after he was harassed by a predominantly left wing department.  Monday morning he filed suit against MCC and now he wants a pay back. "It was an American flag.  I didn't think it was too controversial but apparently at MCC it was."  Filozof says his colleagues at MCC attacked his political views.  It came as quite a shock considering many professors decorate their office doors with...

    SUPPORTING President Bush is not just socially suicidal in this town — it can endanger your career and cost you big bucks, as one cabby discovered the hard way. Haitian-born Etzer Jerome was fined $500 and had his license suspended three weeks — a loss of some $5,000 — simply because, he says, he committed a new kind of infraction: Backing Bush While Black. "I'm a Bush man," Jerome, 49, told me while recounting a story that couldn't happen anyplace else. [snip] Elizabeth Grainger asked for a ride to 116th Street.

  • Ron Silver says his GOP activism has cost him in Hollywood

    For years, Ron Silver was a partisan Democrat. But everything changed for Silver after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Now he calls himself a "9/12 Republican." A strong supporter of Israel and the war in Iraq, Silver spoke at the Republican National Convention and is featured prominently in a new documentary, "Fahrenhype 9/11," a searing indictment of Michael Moore's blockbuster film. Silver says his political change of heart and outspoken support of President Bush has exacted a high professional cost in Hollywood, where Republicans are a decidedly rare breed. "It's affected me very badly. I can't point to a...

    For years, the actor Ron Silver was a partisan Democrat - a one-time president of the Actors' Equity union and co-founder, with colleagues like Susan Sarandon and Christopher Reeve, of the Creative Coalition, which encouraged left-leaning political activism among celebrities. His best known screen role may be that of Bruno Gianelli, the Machiavellian political consigliere to Democratic President Jed Bartlet on TV's popular series "The West Wing." Everything changed for Silver after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Now he calls himself a "9/12 Republican."

    NEW YORK - Veteran recording and movie star Pat Boone advises politically conservative and religious young people seeking a career in show business not to hide their worldview. At the same time, the 70-year-old crooner charges that there is an unwritten Hollywood blacklist against conservatives. "Definitely, I've been a victim of it for years," he told in an interview. "There have been many roles, movie roles and TV things that I was really ripe for. And if I was considered at all, I was immediately shut out because of the liberal mind-set of the guys who hire and fire."...

    Actor Ron Silver got a much warmer welcome at the convention Monday night - but will his speech get a chilly reception in Hollywood? Even though Silver made it plain in his address that he disagrees with President Bush on domestic issues, he claims he is catching it for hailing the war on Saddam. "I've already been feeling it socially," Silver tells us. "[Democrats] don't want to engage in any real conversation about post-9/11 security. They are so blinded by their Bush hatred." After chiding Tinseltown Kerry supporters in his speech, Silver says, "The Hollywood Reporter headline read, 'Actor Silver...

    IS there a growing cadre of closet conservatives in Hollywood? In an exposé on secret Hollywood Republicans in its upcoming September issue, Details magazine unmasks a host of stealth celebrity conservatives, including Adam Sandler, Freddie Prinze Jr., Jessica Simpson and Shannen Doherty. According to Details, the Republican National Committee has been quietly circulating a list of GOP-supporting Hollywood celebrities in the hopes of offsetting the Democratic Party's A-list star power, which includes liberal luminaries such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Julia Roberts and Leonardo DiCaprio. But many on the Left Coast are reluctant to come forward with their conservative convictions. Rather than...

    Dead Stalinist honored Posted: June 22, 20041:00 a.m. Eastern By Joseph Farah © 2004 When actor John Randolph died last February, I didn't write a word about the man's life or death. I didn't mention that all of the major media obituaries withheld critical information about the character actor. There are so many important issues to write about, even with a daily column, it's hard to keep up. I was tempted to expose the truth about him then. I didn't. But the tributes to this un-American symbol of Hollywood subversion just don't stop. The latest was held in New York on...

    Information you should know...... Just now on MSNBC, Lawrence O'Donnell was relating the following anecdote: A few months ago, he had to visit the offices of the Screen Actors Guild in order to fill out some paperwork. The place is covered in photos of past presidents of the union, and some even had statues of themselves. Except for Ronald Reagan. O'Donnell said he went all over the building and could find no sign that Ronald Reagan ever even existed. He was disgusted and amazed by it, especially since Reagan is the only president of a union to become President of...

    WASHINGTON, May 18 (Reuters) - The United States plans to remove Sudan from a blacklist of nations failing to help its war on terrorism, in a sign Africa's largest nation has taken some steps to fight militants, U.S. officials said on Tuesday. But Sudan has not gone far enough to persuade the United States to remove it from a second list that bans U.S. trade in arms with the country, because it has yet to show it has stopped sponsoring terrorism organizations, they added. Acknowledging the apparent contradiction in keeping Sudan on only one blacklist, a State Department official said...

    AUSTIN -- A Web site for doctors that blacklisted patients who file medical malpractice lawsuits has vanished from the Internet. The site's sponsors posted a farewell message posted this week, saying that DoctorsKnow.Us had drawn attention to malpractice litigation, and the sponsors hoped it resulted in "changes that are equitable to both patients and physicians." With Texans' access to medical care remaining a contentious issue, the Web site had prompted protests. "It was unethical. It was an immoral Web site that was arbitrarily blacklisting innocent patients, many in Texas," said Dan Lambe, director of Texas Watch, a statewide consumer research...
