    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that his friend and fellow partner on several Chicago community organization boards and in whose home he launched his political career, William Ayers, was an infamous and unrepentent radical leftwing terrorist who boasted about planting bombs and killing people in this country. Obama either didn't know or didn't care that his close friend, Frank Marshall Davis, whom he wrote about with such admiration in his book "Dreams Of My Father" was a radical member of the Communist Party USA, an ardent Stalinist and a outspoken supporter of the 60's Black-Power movement. Obama...

    Barack Obama Was Wrong - The Surge Worked In Iraq: * US casualties are down almost 80%, violence is down even more to the lowest levels since the war started and it's directly due to the troop surge that John McCain was among the first to support. The surge worked, Al Qaeda In Iraq is being neutralized and stability and cooperation is growing among Iraqis. Barack Obama was wrong to oppose the surge and was wrong when he said it wouldn't work and was wrong when he said that it would make the violence worse. And now, faced with the...
  • Interesting Look At Democratic Primary Results

    We all hear how "close" the Democratic Primaries are and how much Obama is so dominant in the hearts and minds of the average everyday Democratic voter. Well if we looked at the Obama v. Clinton match-up in terms of the electoral college - we'd see a very different outlook. Presidential elections are won or lost based on Electoral College votes, not based on "delegates", "superdelegates", party caucuses or total popular vote. States that hold Primary Elections allow the VOTERS to choose their candidate, as opposed to states that hold caucuses in which voters don't go to the polls...

    Just to refresh your memory, seeing as how the media has so absolutely and completely dropped ANY interest in this story (it's not like either one of them was a blond co-ed vacationing in Aruba): Pfc. Thomas L. Tucker (age 25) and Pfc. Kristian Menchaca (age 23) Captured June 16, 2006 by subhuman savages in Iraq, these two young soldiers were found three days later along a roadside decapitated, hearts cut out, testicles cut off, penises cut off and stuffed in their mouths, arms and legs broken and mutilated, bodies burned and eyes gouged out. Their bodies and faces, pulped...

    Illegal Immigration - A Convergence Of Concerns If you asked 10 people what they thought were the major problems or threats facing America today, you'd probably get 15 different answers - which goes to show there are MANY domestic problems that American think need to be urgently addressed. Crime, threats of terrorism, shortages and high costs in the health-care system, overcrowded and underperforming schools, skyrocketting federal and state spending, high taxes, low wages... the list can go on. Is there one issue though that is entwined with nearly all these challenges facing America today? Of course you know the answer:...

    In the 1943 landmark Supreme Court decision of 'West Virginia v. Barnette', while America was fighting for its very existance in WWII and the American people were united as ever in that cause, the Supreme Court abandoned "mainstream" public opinion and sided with the much-maligned Jehovah's Witnesses who refused to recite the pledge allegience and salute the flag. Writing for the Court, Justice Robert H. Jackson rightly stated, "The very purpose of a Bill of Rights is to withdraw certain subjects from the vicissitudes of political controversy, to place them beyond the reach of majorities..." Ironically, today we have Senators...

    Four Years Ago Today:A gaping hole in the hull of the USS Cole testifies to the force of the suicide terrorist bombing that killed 17 sailors as the U.S. Navy vessel was docked in Yemen on October 12, 2000. Counterterrorism officials later concluded that the bombing was carried out by al-Qaeda. Four Years Later: "We have to get back to the place we were, where terrorists are not the focus of our lives, but they're a nuisance." Hanoi-John Kerry, October 10, 2004.

    The Vietnam Veterans Against The War (VVAW) sent their own delegation to Paris to meet with the representatives of the National Liberation Front (also known as the "Viet Cong") in 1971. The NLF was our ENEMY during the war and John Kerry, leader and spokesman of the VVAW, was actually meeting with THEM to discuss and help coordinate VVAW's activities here in the USA. This photograph is from the book "The Winter Soldiers", by Richard Stacewicz, page 284: Caption: First peace meeting between VVAW and the NLF, Paris, 1971.

    . In April 1914, nine Americans were mistakenly arrested as they docked in the Mexican port of Tampico during a time in which (unknown to them) martial law was being imposed by the Mexican leader General Huerta. Two Americans were actually taken off their ship by Mexican forces. The U.S.S. Dolphin and an American whaling boat were docked at the time and were flying American flags when Mexican soldiers boarded the boat and arrested the unarmed men. An hour and a half later, orders were received from the commander of the Huertista forces at Tampico for the release of the...

    Why is there so much more congressional outrage and demands for answers and immediate ACTION over the Abu Ghraib prison than there is over the horrific beheading of an innocent American citizen at the hands of our enemies or the inhuman mutilation and ghoulish display of American corpses in Fallujah? Why is there so much more congressional attention, grandstanding and partisan, election-year rhetoric over what amounts to basically stupid or obscene college-fraternity hazing-pranks conducted on enemy combatants and terrorists than there is over the REAL inhuman atrocity waged against Mr. Nick Berg who was savagely beheaded by these very same...

      ...MUSLIMS (surprise!) "Peace Through The Medium Of War" Muslim pirates operating in the Mediterranean from Tripoli, Morroco, Tunisia and Algeria (the Barbary States) had been terrorizing European and early American merchant ships for hundreds of years. They attacked and pillaged any and all ships along trade routes, stole all cargos and held crews hostage for ransom which, if not paid, resulted in the crews being sold into slavery. European states got so accustomed to these attacks that they actually paid regular "tributes" which were in effect blackmail "pre-ransom monies" to avoid having the crews of their ships seized.

Back in the early summer of 1996 (heading towards the election) , First Lady Hillary Clinton told Time Magazine journalist Walter Isaacson in an interview that she and the President are "hoping to have another child" and they are "talking about it (adopting a baby) more". Regarding she and the President adopting a baby, Hillary said at the time, "We'd obviously wait to get serious about it until after the election... I hope that something will come...

    Appeasement: The Global "Battered-Wife" Syndrome. There's a sickness in wanting to get violent men to like you or speak well of you. Like weak-willed flunkies who do the bidding of tough-talking bullies in school, many submit to their bullying, subconsciously desiring approval from those who appear stronger than they. They gain self-esteem by siding with those who would otherwise speak and act harshly against them and, just like in the schoolyard, the enemy of the bully becomes the enemy of the flunkies - all for the approval of the bully. They fool themselves into thinking they have found a way...
