    Looks like Barack Obama really made an impression on the Congressional Black Caucus this weekend — but not the one he intended. Maxine Waters tells CBS that she’s not sure exactly who Obama thought he was addressing, and claimed that the CBC has worked a whole lot more on unemployment than the President has, without whining about their critics. But Waters goes one better by telling CBS that Obama wouldn’t have dared telling a couple of other identity groups to stop griping: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VI0drr-F-2U&feature=player_embedded

    It seems that every other day, one hears of another "crisis" that must be dealt with immediately -- by government expansion. Examples include everything from swine flu to global warming to the rising cost of health care. We are warned that we need the government to protect us. We are asked to sacrifice. We are told that there is no time to think, and we must act immediately -- Washington will do the thinking for us.

    The more I observe U.S. politics, the more I am sickened by racial politics. Don't get me wrong; this is also an observable trend in Europe. The fact is that race and nationality have always been explosive issues. Politicians and political interest groups know this and use it to damage or completely discredit the opposing ideology. Liberals in the U.S. would have you believe that conservatism or rightist politics is the source of all racist thought in America. To believe this, one would have to ignore history completely and the fact that many of the most brutal racist policies the...

    Russian president may have halted operations, but Russia could still 'defend' itself against Georgian armed resistance. While Russian President Dimitry Medvedev might have called a halt to operations he deliberately left open the possibility of combat by allowing his forces to "defend themselves" from Georgian armed resistance. In characteristically blunt style, Russia also used a show of military force to warn Georgia against taking strategic advantage of Moscow's decision to end hostilities. Within an hour of the order to halt action, the Daily Telegraph witnessed Russian helicopter gunships launch missile strikes deep inside undisputed Georgian territory. The attacks, which were...

    Red diaper baby Barack Obama's collectivist beliefs go way back. We dug up an enlightening old article, "What Makes Obama Run?" (by Hank De Zutter, Chicago Reader, Dec. 8, 1995) that offers more insight into what Obama, the Democrats' presumptive presidential candidate, thinks about America and traditional American values. The short answer: not much. In it Obama, at that time a candidate for the Illinois Senate, criticizes individualism as what intellectual John Ralston Saul has called the cult of the Hero: "In America," Obama says, "we have this strong bias toward individual action. You know, we idolize the John Wayne...

    Rugged American individualism could hinder our ability to understand other peoples' point of view, a new study suggests. And in contrast, the researchers found that Chinese are more skilled at understanding other people's perspectives, possibly because they live in a more "collectivist" society. "This cultural difference affects the way we communicate," said study co-author and cognitive psychologist Boaz Keysar of the University of Chicago. The study, though oversimplified compared to real life, was instructive. Keysar and his colleagues arranged two blocks on a table so participants could see both. However, a piece of cardboard obstructed the view of one block...

I believe more African-Americans spent this season reflecting on the birth of Christ than some phony non-Christian holiday invented a few decades ago by an FBI stooge. Kwanzaa is a holiday for white liberals, not blacks. It is a fact that Kwanzaa was invented in 1966 by a black radical FBI stooge, Ron Karenga, aka Dr. Maulana Karenga.

The Respect MP, whose Bethnal Green and Bow constituency includes the site of at least one of the bomb attacks, said the attacks were "despicable". But he told MPs it was the US-led coalition's actions in Afghanistan, Iraq and Guantanamo which had inflamed hatred of the West in the Muslim world. In response, minister Adam Ingram accused Mr Galloway of "dipping his poisonous tongue in a pool of blood". The armed forces minister added that Mr Galloway's comments were "disgraceful".

"I like women, but I've fallen in love with Chavez," Argentina's former World Cup winning captain told reporters after having lunch with the Venezuelan leader at the presidential palace. The two embraced afterward. The 44-year-old soccer celebrity, considered one of the greatest players of all time, is also an ardent admirer of Fidel Castro, the Communist President of Cuba where Maradona has lived since 2000 while fighting cocaine addiction.

    A Churchill By Any Other Name By Robin Mullins Boyd February 9, 2005 Ward Churchill shares his surname with one of the pre-eminent figures in world political history, Winston Churchill. That is where the similarities end. The media has been in an uproar since Ward Churchill was "disinvited" to speak at Hamilton College in NY. The invitation was retracted after the public was made aware of the professor's anti-American screed about the September 11 tragedy. The University of Colorado has since started proceedings to evaluate whether Churchill should continue in his tenured position at the university. The uproar centered on...

    Ward Churchill, the University of Colorado professor who prompted a national furor by condemning 9-11 victims as "little Eichmanns" and praising the terrorists for their "gallant sacrifices," went to federal court today to challenge the school's cancellation of a speech he was scheduled to give tonight. On Monday, CU administrators announced they had canceled Churchill's planned speech because of security concerns, reported the Denver Post. Earlier this month, Hamilton College in upstate New York canceled a speech by Churchill because of death threats against the professor and its administrators. Regardless of what the judge decides, students of Churchill, an ethnics...

    Boulder -- A University of Colorado professor under fire for comparing the victims of the Sept. 11 attacks to Nazis went to federal court Tuesday challenging a decision to cancel his speech. On Monday, Colorado administrators announced they had canceled the speech by ethnic studies professor Ward Churchill for Tuesday because of security concerns. Earlier this month, Hamilton College in upstate New York canceled another speech by him because of death threats against the professor and its administrators. The dispute over the professor is one of several controversies that have roiled the Boulder campus. In his filing Tuesday in Denver...

    Activism A Seattle Central Community College campus antiwar group, Students Against War, is in hot water after students chased U.S. Army recruiters off the SCCC campus during an Inauguration Day anti-Bush rally. Nobody was hurt in the incident, in which students ripped up recruiting literature and verbally confronted recruiters. Right-wing bloggers and radio talk shows across the country have gotten hold of the story and are besieging SCCC administrators with demands to discipline the students. The upshot, says Pete Knutson, the students' faculty adviser, was a letter from the administration demanding that the students apologize by Thursday or have their...

    BOULDER, Colo. -- The University of Colorado said Thursday a professor who compared the victims of the World Trade Center attacks to Nazis doesn't reflect the views of the school but that he has a right to express his opinion. Also Thursday, a Colorado congressman called the comments "outrageous" and urged the professor, Ward Churchill, to resign while the brother of a man who died at the World Trade Center called Churchill a "nut case." Churchill, chairman of the ethnic studies program at CU, has been invited to speak next month at Hamilton College in Clinton, N.Y., where news of...

    Disgruntled conspiracy filmmaker Michael Moore blasted the Democratic Party on Thursday, saying its field of candidates for 2008 are "a lot of wimps and losers." "The Democrats are going to have a very hard time winning the next election," he told London's Channel Four. "The Republicans have a number of star players and the Democrats have a lot of wimps and losers." Only last month Moore was calling Hillary Clinton a Democratic Party star who had a good chance of winning in 2008. But her widely reported move to the center has apparently turned him off. Moore was particularly irked...

    Are we facing the threat of fascism? By Elizabeth Schulte, Janury 21, 2005 Faced with the prospect of four more years of George W. Bush, some on the left claimed that fascism was on horizon if Bush was re-elected. “We should not gloss over the reality that the Bush team has neared some elements of fascism in its day-to-day operations - and forces inside the Bush administration would be well-positioned to move it even farther to the right after 2004,” left-wing columnist Norman Solomon warned. “We don’t want to find out how fascistic a second term of George W. Bush’s...

    Tune in and listen to all the speakers spout "That Good Old Commie Melody" regardless of what group they respresent. Isn't this supposed to be a protest against BUSH right? These guys hate AMERICA, you can see and hear they say so. Take the speaker's name and search for that name and "COMMUNIST" and see what drops out. The Himmler looking Brian Becker won't admit to his WWP Secretariat credentials on his resume.
