    Myanmar's ultra-nationalist Buddhist monk Wirathu has called the UN's special rapporteur for human rights in Burma a "whore" during a public address in Yangon. The leader of the controversial 969 nationalist movement hit back at Yanghee Lee for an earlier comment in defence of the stateless Rohingya Muslims, who are persecuted in the country's western Rakhine state. "We have already made public our Race Protection Law, but without even studying it, this bitch [kaungma in Burmese] keeps on complaining about how it is against human rights!" Wirathu shouted. "Can this whore really be from a respectable family background?" he asked...

    The pictures shown on television in August and September '07 were clear, despite the efforts of the Burmese police to restrict coverage: Hundreds of saffron-robed Buddhist monks marched in front of an even larger number of mostly young men. Repeatedly they were challenged by security forces and dispersed, first with batons, then tear gas and rubber bullets, and finally gunfire. -- snip -- As it turns out, George Soros and his Open Society Institute contracted with professional trainers to instruct Burmese dissidents. -- snip -- According to the Soros mentality and political theory, the invasion of Iraq to depose the...

    BEIJING - China vowed Saturday to ramp up a campaign requiring Tibetan Buddhist monks to denounce the Dalai Lama and declare their loyalty to Beijing. But resentment over "patriotic education" has ignited protests that have left eight people dead in recent days in a southwestern province and could fuel future unrest despite a massive security presence aimed at quelling the demonstrations. The Tibet Daily newspaper reported Saturday that the government pledged to "strengthen patriotic education" especially among young monks to help them "become patriotic, religion-loving and law-abiding." "We should strengthen patriotic education so as to guide the masses of monks...

    Human beings are conditioned to do what they get rewarded for. The Burmese government seems to understand this well. They get power and unlimited perks when they shoot any people that step in their way. Hence; the guns go blazing. As several thousand Buddhist Monks lay dead, and the bodies are being loaded onto trucks and dumped in the jungle, the UN has sent a special envoy to chat with the fascists. This should make for scintillating conversation. The UN has arrived to negotiate on behalf of an aggrieved party that has been slaughtered in detail. Perhaps the UN can...

    Clerics say liquor companies should not be permitted to raise funds from the public on local stock exchange More than 5,000 Buddhist monks staged a protest outside the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) yesterday and condemned Thai Beverages Plc, producer of Chang beer and Mekong whisky, for its plan to list on the exchange. It was one of the largest demonstrations by Buddhist monks in recent memory, prompted by what they consider an “immoral act”; alcohol-related business, they said, should not be allowed to raise funds from the public through listing on the exchange.

    Borrowing a page from President Bush, New York Sen. Hillary Clinton told a Boston audience this week that prayer has always played a meaningful role in her life - though accounts from her days as a student radical suggest that's probably not true. "I've always been a praying person," Clinton told a crowd of more than 500, including many religious leaders, at Boston's Fairmont Copley Plaza. According to the Boston Globe, the newly religious former first lady "invoked God more than half a dozen times" as she urged society to accommodate religious people who "live out their faith in the...

    On the eve of President Bush's second inauguration, New York Sen. Hillary Clinton is blasting him as the "fear factor" president who tries to sell his irresponsible agenda by scaring the voters. "The fear factor has become the overriding strategic approach that this administration uses," Clinton complained to the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle. The likely 2008 presidential candidate told the paper that Bush has used scare tactics to rally public support on issues ranging from U.S. policy in Iraq to privatization of Social Security. On Iraq Clinton griped that Bush had even botched the election process, saying that regional balloting...

The administration has put forth an energy policy that we couldn’t get through that Republican leadership that my opponent is part of. We need a new Congress. I was pleased when the president did release some oil from the reserve. So we have work to do and it needs to be led by Democrats who understand that we shouldn’t be beholden to big oil. Source:...

    NEW YORK, January 12, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Abortion crusader and New York Senator Hillary Clinton condemned US President George W. Bush Tuesday, claiming his withdrawal of funding from organizations that commit or promote abortions is harming women. Speaking at an International Women's Health Coalition-sponsored dinner, Clinton claimed that "reproductive health care and family planning service is a basic right," and said this was based on decisions reached at the 1994 U.N. Population Conference in Cairo, as well as the 1995 U.N. women's conference in Beijing, where Clinton gave a keynote address. She argued that the Bush administration has failed to...

Hillary Rodham Clinton has sent an early fundraising appeal that, while directed toward reelection, reads like a trial run for a White House bid.

She says her task is made more difficult by "the Republican attack machine out to distract me...

Hillary Clinton surely hopes that history isn't repeating itself with the raid conducted by...
