    Could this be the end of Monument Syndrome? Across the country, ordinary Americans are rising up in revolt against the old Washington tactic of closing public parks and memorials during selective government “shutdowns” to score political points. Tax-paying tourists are tossing off the orange traffic cones and “Barrycades.” Enough is enough. The movement started with waves of World War II veterans who flew to D.C. last week as part of the Honor Flight Network. (The nonprofit group brings our surviving heroes to visit the memorials that honor their service and sacrifice.) The vets and volunteers breached the fences last week,...

    I received yet another email request for funds from the Tea Party "Patriots" Citizens Fund. Here is the maddening segment of Jenny Beth Martin's reasons for her request for funds. 2) We need to bombard targeted Senators with ads. The constituents of every single wishy-washy “Republican” need to understand what is at stake. We just don’t yet have the funding we need to buy these ads.  Someone this stupid has no business being in the business of fighting the Establishment. As far as I am concerned, she is essentially an antidisestablishmentarian.  Hey, maybe I'm overly sensitive, but am I wrong...

    For nearly 15 years, the Pulliam Hall clock tower on the campus of Southern Illinois University has played Christmas carols. But this year, after a few complaints, the bells have been briefly silenced while the school tries to expand its melodic tradition to include a more diverse selection of music. “We took the music off the clock tower as a result of some complaints we received that religious music was offensive to non-Christians,” SIU Chancellor Rita Cheng told KFVS. The local CBS affiliate reports that SIU administrators agreed Friday to start playing “secular holiday songs” until a more “multi-cultural mix”...

    A group of pensioners are so fed up with yobs and drug dealers on their estate, they have set up a hi-tech surveillance operation to catch them. The members have spent £15,000 on the latest equipment such as high-range scopes and night-vision lenses to film the criminals. They claim to have pictured more than 100 offenders dealing drugs, carrying weapons and assaulting other people, and post the footage on their website and YouTube. ‘All of the group apart from myself is made up of retired elderly people, who are scared out of their wits about what is happening,’ said Albert...

    A brewer criticised for making what it claimed is Britain's strongest beer has unveiled an ale with a 1.1 per cent alcohol content, which it has called Nanny State. BrewDog said it launched Nanny State in response to the outcry caused after launching Tokyo* with an 18.2 per cent alcohol content. In July health experts said a high-alcohol percentage can cause as much damage as drinking to excess. A 330ml bottle of Tokyo* contains six units of alcohol - twice the recommended daily limit. BrewDog, based in Fraserburgh, Aberdeenshire, said the stronger beer will help change the country's binge-drinking culture...

Waltham Forest is treating this as mass truancy and says parents could be dragged into court, fined and forced to sign parenting contracts. But these aren't the usual feckless mothers and absentee fathers content to let their children bunk off school. They are deeply moral and religious people who object to their children being force-fed homosexual propaganda in the classroom. As such, they exercised their right to withdraw their sons and daughters from...

    After blasting Republicans for an endless string of missteps last week, I concede the GOP finally got one right. Electing the former Lieutenant Governor of Maryland, Michael Steele, to chair the Republican National Committee is a smart move for the GOP and a warning for Democrats. I have spent hours with Steele at the Fox News studios, and in dozens of TV encounters, and at dinners. Steele is a friendly, formidable, and very partisan man who should not be underestimated. He has a disarming and gifted television personality and an uncanny ability to make the most unreasonable arguments sound rational....

The Central Florida chapter of the United American Committee, a nonprofit group that seeks to educate Americans on the threat of Islamic extremism, is raising money to purchase a six-month contract to display the billboard, which the group hopes will awaken the public to discussing the full extent of Islamic law.

    A Frenchman suspected of involvement in a wave of attacks against speed cameras near Paris had both hands blown off this morning when his home-made bomb exploded in his flat. Police said his condition was critical. Interior minister Michèle Alliot-Marie said “multiple clues” pointed to the 41-year old postal worker being linked to the Nationalist Revolutionary Army Faction (Fnar), a shadowy “guerrilla” group which has claimed responsibility for destroying dozens of speed traps. Investigators say the man exclaimed: “I am from the Fnar” when firemen arrived at his flat in Clichy-La-Garenne, west of Paris.

Limbaugh said, "I feel liberated, ladies and gentlemen, because I feel like I don't have to carry the water for people that I think don't deserve to have their water carried." Limbaugh's success as a talk-radio host comes from his incredible talent at analyzing the lay of the land, breaking down the issues of the day for his audience and seeing things that most people miss when sizing up...

The films show balaclava-clad white British men brandishing guns, knives and clubs, calling on all Muslims to leave Britain or be killed. One appears to be a soldier who has served in the Gulf. In one film, a man tells Muslims to "go home" or risk being burned alive. He threatens, "I'll cut your head off", and claims to have "comrades" across Britain who have "had enough".

    AL ASAD, Iraq (August 20, 2005) -- “I watched it happen. I felt helpless. My friends and I wanted to help out, but I couldn’t go because the fire department, where I’m a volunteer fire fighter, was on stand by. I had to go with the fire department if they went.” This is the beginning of Lance Cpl. Michael Sprung’s story of what became his journey to becoming one of the few and the proud. Sprung, a 29-year-old truck driver with Transportation Support Company, Combat Logistics Battalion 2, 2nd Force Service Support Group (Forward), recalled what happened that fateful September...

    A would-be robber got a hard lesson at a beauty school in Shreveport Tuesday: Don't mess with a class of aspiring hair stylists. The man went into Blalock's Beauty College in the 5400 block of Mansfield Road around noon intending to rob it. Instead, he wound up on the receiving end of fists, curling irons, a table leg and a 2-by-4 when the 18 women and two men in the class fought back, beat him up and held him until police arrived. "He walked into a hornet's nest," Police Officer E.J. Swartout said. The students said the man had ordered...

    Last night, Minutemen supporters gathered privately at the Women's Civic Club of Garden Grove (in O.C.) to hear a discussion lead by James Gilchrist, the founder of the Minutemen Project. About 300 protestors, charging that the Minutemen are a racist group, gathered outside to protest the meeting. When the Minutemen supporters tried to leave the event, at least two of their cars were attacked by dozens of protestors. The protestors hit the vehicles with placards and other objects until one of the drivers gunned his car to get away from the crowd. He was arrested, though I'm not sure what...

    Tell George Bush to nominate a new UN Ambassador!4/27/2005Dear Friend, On April 19th, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee met once more to consider the nomination of John Bolton as UN Ambassador. In the light of many serious allegations against Bolton that have emerged over the past few weeks, I along with the other committee Democrats urged Chairman Lugar to hold off on a final vote until these allegations could be fully explored. Most observers expected our efforts to fail, figuring that committee Republicans would steamroll Democrats on a party line vote and ram Bolton's nomination through, sending it to...

    A woman is slowly starving to death in a Florida hospice. She is under armed guard to ensure that no one offers her water to drink or food to eat. This is all happening under court order. Not a congressional act or the personal intervention of the president of the United States has been able to help her. Is America broken? How could this happen in this country, as the whole nation, the whole world, watches? Oh, the lawyers have their excuses. The high priests in black robes claim to have sympathy but say their hands are tied. This is...

    BAGHDAD—Ordinary Iraqis rarely strike back at the insurgents who terrorize their country. But just before noon yesterday, a carpenter named Dhia saw a group of masked gunmen with grenades coming toward his shop and decided he had had enough. As the gunmen emerged from their cars, Dhia, 35, and his young relatives shouldered their own AK-47s and opened fire, the police and witnesses said. In the fierce gun battle that followed, three of the insurgents were killed and the rest fled just after the police arrived. Two of Dhia's nephews and a bystander were injured, the police said. "We attacked...

    United Nations peacekeepers have gone on the offensive against a militia group in Congo, deploying helicopters and killing nearly 60 people in the biggest battle fought by the world body in more than a decade. But criticism of the operation was mounting yesterday when it emerged that up to a third of the dead could have been civilians used as human shields by the group that was the attackers' intended target. The latest hostilities began when a battalion of Pakistani soldiers advanced on the militia base in the Ituri district, the scene of some of the worst atrocities in the...

    Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley and his wife told a crowd of reporters today that they have a faithful, loving marriage, after the mayor accused agents of Maryland Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s administration of spreading false rumors that he had an extramarital affair. "It is difficult to express the kind of anger a father feels in not being able to protect his children from the lies," said Martin O'Malley, a Democrat. "It's hard to defend against this without giving aid to the people trying to push this." Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley and his wife Katie O'Malley hold a press conference...

    SACRAMENTO (AP) - California's cotton and rice farmers, who receive more than $500 million a year in federal farm subsidies, are preparing for a fight over President Bush's proposed subsidy cuts. The president proposed a $587 million budget cut in farm subsidies nationwide. That would most affect the state's farmers of cotton and rice, which have a combined acreage of about 1.2 million acres throughout California. Bush proposed a 5 percent reduction in support payments, a new $250,000 ceiling on payments to individual farmers and an end to loopholes that allow some farmers to claim multiple owners of their farm...

    Iraqi insurgents resume deadly attacksTONY EASTLEY: In Iraq insurgents have returned to their grizzly trade, killing more than two dozen people, including two US Marines. In the deadliest attack insurgents ambushed a bus and killed 12 Iraqi army recruits. It ended the relative calm that existed during the election last weekend. Election officials meanwhile have released the first results of Sunday's historic election, but have cautioned against attempting to extrapolate nationwide totals from the small numbers. The ABC's Middle East Correspondent, Mark Willacy, is in the Iraqi capital,  Baghdad. Mark Willacy, we've heard reports about the high voter turnout, but...

    Poor President Bush, so hated by "the world" and yet so incredibly popular at home. We all know why he's popular - he's a man of his word, he doesn't bend with political winds, he's willing to take the hard road and he means what he says. There's one other president in our hemisphere who resembles him, a man in the middle of another terror war whose inhumanly vicious enemies have tried to assassinate him two times in the past week, adding to a long string of other efforts. And his response has been like President Bush's - to defy...
