    The 9/11 rescue dogs: Portraits of the last surviving animals who scoured Ground Zero one decade on During the chaos of the 9/11 attacks, where almost 3,000 people died, nearly 100 loyal search and rescue dogs and their brave owners scoured Ground Zero for survivors. Now, ten years on, just 12 of these heroic canines survive, and they have been commemorated in a touching series of portraits entitled 'Retrieved'. The dogs worked tirelessly to search for anyone trapped alive in the rubble, along with countless emergency service workers and members of the public. Travelling across nine states in the U.S....

    CLAYTON, MO (KMOX) – Taking heat from Muslim groups upset with a coloring book about the 9/11 Attacks, a publisher says he’s been in contact with local police and the FBI. Wayne Bell, the Publisher of Really Big Coloring Books, Inc., says there’s been a negative backlash against the book “We Shall Never Forget 9/11: The Kids’ Book of Freedom.” “These are people from Al-Jazeera that have called in here numerous times, people from Iranian TV, people from Palestinian Hamas TV,” Bell said, “A lot of people from the Islamic community have called in here and said increasingly negative things...
  • The war book is ready (Israel prepares for war)

    Israel Matzav ^ | 8/27/11 | staff
    YNet reports that we were a lot closer to war last weekend than most Israelis realize. The war book is ready. When Defense Minister Ehud Barak arrived at the Defense Ministry Headquarters’ meeting room last Saturday, a thick war book titled “Operation South” was already awaiting his approval on his desk. In those hours, Israel was on the verge of embarking on war in the Gaza Strip. The book did not pertain to a limited operation. The selected targets would have certainly prompted a major flare-up, including difficult regional implications. Just like in Operation Cast Lead, the political leadership granted...

    New book "will make (DC) heads explode" _________________________________ From bit from an exclusive Drudge peek... "Cheney excoriates Colin Powell for standing by silently, knowing that his deputy Richard Armitage was responsible for leaking Valerie Plame's identity to the press." He's always been an odd duck, this Colin Powell... hard to see what makes him tick, and this certainly raises a few questions regarding the man's character. I always thought it was race or something -as it was for many in 2008- but perhaps he had his own reasons for endorsing and continuing to make excuses for Obama's serial mismanagement of this...

    Today/MSNBC/NBC News ^ | 8-247-11 | Scott Stump
    *snip* In the book, titled “In My Time,’’ Cheney addresses a broad range of topics, including the attacks of Sept. 11; a secret resignation letter he kept in a safe in case he experienced catastrophic health issues, and his thoughts about former President George W. Bush and ex-Secretaries of State Condoleezza Rice and Colin Powell. The 46th vice president discusses those topics and more in his candid, unapologetic interview with Gangel, and he’ll likely have more to say when he appears live on TODAY with Matt Lauer on Aug. 30, the day his book hits stores.

    So the News Journal got their copy of Troublemaker and true to form they set out on a campaign to not only destroy the book but to destroy the author. I was mad, REALLY mad, but just moments before I started writing this post, I read the following hit piece from Chad Livengood at the News Journal. It should have made me mad. Should have…but it didn’t. As I read through the piece, through the long list of backstabbers and second guessers. Through the list of names of people who campaigned for Mike Castle, who developed the “Kill the girl”...

    Right-wing fears come true in Dan Simmons’ ‘Flashback’ By Patrick Anderson Aug 14, 2011 02:27AM Dan Simmons’ Flashback is an abundantly entertaining, often outrageous right-wing fantasy about a weak, broken United States 20-odd years from now. The country is ruled by the Japanese, lives in fear of the Islamic Global Caliphate, and its citizens mostly spend their time stoned on a drug called flashback that lets them escape to a better past. Some of the events that have occurred between now and the early 2030s can be summed up thusly: U.S. Goes Bankrupt Israel Destroyed by Nuclear Attack Mexican Army...

    Dick Cheney’s publisher, media companies and readers are gearing up for the Aug. 30 release of the former vice president’s much-anticipated memoir. Simon & Schuster’s conservative imprint, Threshold, has released the cover image for “In My Time: A Personal and Political Memoir” and promises that Cheney for the first time “opens up about a life and career in politics.” Media companies are scrambling to land interviews with the former vice president. NBC news will do a multi-part sitdown with the author starting with a prime time Dateline interview on Aug. 29. That will be followed the next day by Cheney’s...

    Juan Williams on NPR: Elitist and white By: Keach Hagey July 21, 2011 07:39 AM EDT No single person has had a greater impact on National Public Radio in the past year than Juan Williams. The political wildfire started by his firing took down the media organization’s CEO, top news executive and top fundraiser, and sparked multiple votes on the floor of Congress to strip the public broadcaster of federal funding. As if this were not vindication enough, in “Muzzled: The Assault on Honest Debate,” a new book out next week, Williams details a decade of what he said was...

    New biography outs Israeli producer Arnon Milchan as man who purchased components for Israel's nuclear arsenal Could one of Hollywood's greatest Israeli producers have been a Mossad agent? In a new biography called Confidential: The Life of Secret Agent Turned Hollywood Tycoon Arnon Milchan,” authors Meir Doron and Joseph Gelman claim that the producer took part in secret Mossad operations. According to the book, Milchan supervised accounts and financed "the essential needs of Israel intelligence operations outside the country." Those "essential needs" include purchasing components for Israel's nuclear arsenal

    A favorite game among comic book geeks is to imagine–and argue about–which contemporary actors would play which superheroes and villains. Now with his new book I Am John Galt Donald Luskin has brought the game to Ayn Rand’s two towering works of fiction: The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged. And it makes for a splendid read indeed. Capitalists, libertarians and of course Objectivists, all those who believe in liberty and the power of free markets can all rejoice. There is plenty here for those sorts of people to agree on and enjoy. Here is a book that reveals Ayn Rand’s philosophical...

    Republicans, including Sarah Palin and Rudy Giuliani, made a "strategic blunder" by making a joke of Barack Obama's work as a community organizer, Newt Gingrich says in a new book about the radical ACORN group. It was "not helpful" for Palin and Giuliani to mock community organizing in their speeches at the 2008 Republican National Convention, Gingrich tells investigative reporter Matthew Vadum in his new book, Subversion Inc. The GOP's mockery "trivialized Obama and Obama is not a trivial person," Gingrich said in an exclusive interview with Vadum featured in the book:

    Bristol Palin, the single mom and reality TV star whose mother is toying with a run for the White House, will sign copies of her memoir at the Mall of America, officials from the Bloomington shopping center said Monday. Palin, 20, will appear from 6 to 8 p.m. June 29 at the mall's rotunda, bringing her back to the Twin Cites, where her family burst onto the national scene when her mother, Sarah Palin, accepted the No. 2 spot on the Republican Party's presidential ticket during the 2008 national convention in St. Paul. Bristol Palin's book, "Not Afraid of Life:...

    Democrats, watch out. The Republican Party and especially its Tea Party wing have just acquired a new weapon of mass destruction — and it has nothing to do with any of Congressman Wiener’s rogue body parts. If they deploy this weapon effectively in the next election cycle — a big if — then they have the biggest opportunity to move the country rightward since Ronald Reagan took the oath of office back in 1981. The Tea Party WMD stockpile is currently stored in book form: Reckless Endangerment: How Outsized Ambition, Greed, and Corruption Led to Economic Armageddon. By Gretchen Morgenson,...

    ... Mr. Mamet has written a book-length, raucous coming-out party: "The Secret Knowledge: On the Dismantling of American Culture." (If only the Voice editors had been around to supply a snappier title.) Hear him take on the left's sacred cows. Diversity is a "commodity." College is nothing more than "Socialist Camp." Liberalism is like roulette addiction. Toyota's Prius, he tells me, is an "anti-chick magnet" and "ugly as a dogcatcher's butt." Hollywood liberals—his former crowd—once embraced Communism "because they hadn't invented Pilates yet." Oh, and good radio isn't NPR ("National Palestinian Radio") but Dennis Prager, Michael Medved and Hugh Hewitt....

Mark Levin calls it a "must-buy and a must-read." Ann Coulter says "Get deprogrammed -- read Primetime Propaganda." David Limbaugh calls it the most incisive book ever written about the Hollywood community. Andrew Breitbart says, "For forty years, Hollywood has pretended that left-wing McCarthyism does not exist in the television industry. In Primetime Propaganda, Ben Shapiro blows that lie apart, proving over and over again that Hollywood stole the American narrative and...
