    Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas did not announce his walkout from the negotiations with Israel or directly turn down the package of far-reaching Israeli concessions which US Secretary of State John Kerry assembled with Binyamin Netanyahu early Wednesday, April 1. He simply turned his back on the commitment he made ahead of the talks to refrain from unilateral applications to UN bodies while they were in progress. As soon as the US Secretary flew off to Brussels, he sent out applications for “the independent Palestinian state” to join 12 UN agencies as members. This was after the Palestinian leader upped his...

    DUBLIN (AFP) — A US presidential poll victory for Barack Obama would be "phenomenal," former UN chief Kofi Annan said Thursday, adding that whoever wins needs to learn the lessons of the last eight years. Speaking at a conference on hunger in Ireland, he underlined the need for the United States to work in "partnership" with the rest of the world. When asked if the United States and the world was ready for a black US president, he said: "I think it would be a phenomenal change for the US and for the world. "It would introduce a new dynamics...

    It is hard to believe that within the civilized world in the 21st century we would still need to talk about actions used by the Nazi party in Germany to enforce civic conformity to the Nazi ideal. Unfortunately, this is exactly what is taking place in Germany today, and home-schoolers are the targets. On Feb. 1 Melissa Busekros, a home-schooled 15-year-old from Bavaria, was forcibly removed from her home by a team of 15 SWAT officers. She was placed in the psychiatric wing of a Nuremberg clinic and her parents were not allowed to see her. She was deemed to...

    American journalism is under assault. The Telecommunications Act of 1996, with its encouragement of media consolidation and homogenization, has provoked a marked decline in the diversity and quality of broadcast news. The latest round of print media mergers and acquisitions is putting newspaper writers out of work at an unprecedented rate. The people who own the nation's communications combines are, for the most part, so risk-averse and so obsessed with their bottom lines that they are making it impossible for serious reporters to do their jobs. These are fundamental, structural and rapidly expanding threats. Equally serious is the threat posed...

    Actor George Clooney has spoken of the horrors he witnessed when he visited the Sudanese region of Darfur, saying the area urgently needs peacekeepers. The Hollywood star told the BBC that the levels of murder and rape convinced him ethnic cleansing was occurring. At least 200,000 people have died in the region and some 2.5 million are homeless after three years of fighting. The sharply deteriorating security has led to the withdrawal of 250 relief workers, leaving many vulnerable. Pressure Mr Clooney told the BBC's Laura Trevelyan, in New York, that everyone he met in Darfur told of several family...

    A federal judge yesterday struck down a new D.C. law that tied the cost of patented prescription drugs sold in the District to wholesale prices in foreign countries. The Prescription Drug Excessive Pricing Act of 2005 sought to permit civil sanctions against drug companies if patented drugs were sold for more than 30 percent above prices in Australia, Canada, Germany or the United Kingdom. U.S. District Judge Richard J. Leon yesterday ruled in favor of two trade groups that sued the District in October to block the law.

In one of those inversions of reason that only the U.N. can manage, it is now at war with free Iraq in a way it never was with Saddam's bloody despotism. Having chosen to leave Saddam undisturbed despite more than a dozen "compulsory" resolutions, the U.N. cannot forgive George W.

    WASHINGTON — Some of my colleagues in the pundit business have become unhinged by the election results. The always diverting Maureen Dowd of The New York Times wrote the other day that "the forces of darkness" are taking over the country. The voters' confirmation of Republican-led government brings with it "a scary, paranoid, regressive reality," Dowd said, with "strains of isolationism, nativism, chauvinism, puritanism and religious fanaticism." After a campaign of "blatant distortions and character assassination," Republicans have returned to Washington bent on "messing with our psyches" and punishing "society's most vulnerable: the poor, the sick, the sexually different."

If John Kerry is elected President of the United States, he along with the Democratic Party, the courts and the liberal media will unleash a brutally dark future for America.

And with election lawyers for both parties crawling all over Florida, Ohio and other battleground states, both parties assume it will be tight. But stop for a moment and think about it. That this election may be as close as the last is a stunning fact. How can two elections that have been nothing alike produce such a comparable result? How could two campaign seasons that focused on such radically different issues leave the electorate just as evenly divided?

    Commentators are scratching their heads, but it should not be a mystery why Kerry made a comment about Vice-President Cheney’s daughter in the recent debate. With nothing substantive to talk about, Kerry and his camp intend to divide America - to pit us against one another based on race, gender, and anything else they can think of. Kerry’s comment about Cheney’s daughter is part of this calculated strategy. Indeed, we have recently seen blatant examples of this tactic. For example, Kerry has threatened that President Bush will institute a draft. He has also argued that Bush will take away social...

    Whew! What a FReep! John Kerry jetted in from Tampa to Orlando tonight and gave a rather short speech (for him). I didn't see any other FReepers there but there were several like minded people. Here is how it went. This was an outdoor event at Barnett Park adjacent to the Orlando Fairgrounds in the Pine Hills area. Upon arrival I parked across the street from the fairgrounds where a woman acosted me immediately and said I wouldn't be able to park there. I notice she had a big "W" sign and quickly let her know I was a Bush...

    Dulles, Virginia – Next month, the United States will have the distinction of having joined the elite club of countries like Sierra Leone and Sri Lanka whose elections are scrutinized and critiqued by international election monitors. It is a national disgrace that is openly advocated by leftist activists and a group of congressional Democrats. After UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan turned down a request from ten Democrat Congressmen to send poll watchers (he said the petition had to originate with the executive branch of government) the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) gleefully accepted a similar invitation channeled through...

    The Two Johns: So What Do You Want for Lunch? (election levity) Written by Gregory Borse Sunday, October 17, 2004 A new reality television series is being launched by Al Gore's fledgling cable channel. Titled ''The Two Johns,'' the series will capture the riveting behind-the-scenes action as two rich, white liberals plot their run for the White House during the 2004 presidential campaign. While the series is still in production, a special screening of previously filmed footage was made available to the press for review. Here's a snip: John: ''So what do you want for lunch?'' John: ''You know, we...

    Debate Score: Bush 3, Kerry 0 Written by Gregory Borse Saturday, October 16, 2004 Senator Kerry’s nuanced (read hypocritical) foreign policy record includes politically opportunistic votes on the idea of war (he’s for it when it’s politically expedient, or supported by Clinton, and against it when Howard Dean proves that it’s politically expedient in the Democratic Party to be against it). But Kerry has also voted against military funding every time the issue has been brought to the floor of the senate. Kerry’s foreign policy position in a time of war includes attempting to co-opt Ronald Reagan in Wednesday night’s...

    'NUISANCE' NUANCE: KERRY'S TERROR PROBLEM October 16, 2004 --     Regarding Dick Morris' column, a bee sting is a nuisance ("'Nuisance' Nonsense," Opinion, Oct. 12). A toothache is a nuisance. A hangover is a nuisance. Liberals are a nuisance. But terrorism is not a nuisance. God help us if John Kerry is elected. Ray Monahan Howell, N.J.     I don't see how anyone can consider terrorism a nuisance, as Kerry evidently does. The Khobar Towers, the USS Cole bombing, the first World Trade Center bombing and all the other attacks were great tragedies, not nuisances. What does...

    LONDON - America's reputation around the world is hurting, according to a series of coordinated polls published Friday from 10 countries, including many of the United States' closest allies. In eight of the countries where the surveys commissioned by major newspapers were conducted, more people said their view of America had worsened in the past two to three years than improved. That question was asked in nine countries. By big margins, those questioned said the war in Iraq (news - web sites) did not aid the global fight against terrorism. And in eight out of 10 nations, those polled said...

    Two weeks before the U.S. election, hostility toward President George W. Bush has reached new heights internationally. A joint poll taken by 10 newspapers worldwide reveals that most of those surveyed oppose Bush's policies, want to see him defeated, and paint his influence on the global situation in the gloomiest colors. Israelis, perhaps not surprisingly, are alone in their support of the American president. While in other countries, 60-80 percent of those asked said they believed the war in Iraq to have been a mistake, in Israel most thought it justified. While more than half of those polled elsewhere stated...

    45 minutes to go. If there is already a live debate thread go ahead and delete this. I understand posting a live thread has become a somewhat of a political ordeal here, when it shouldn't be. So to take the pressure off, I'm posting this anyway. Do I dare? LOL!
