    MARINE CORPS RECRUIT DEPOT SAN DIEGO, Calif. (Sept. 2, 2005) -- Roughly 50 to 60 Marines stationed at the 8th Marine Corps Recruiting District, New Orleans, are relocating to other offices because of dangerous effects of Hurricane Katrina. A temporary headquarters command element is being established in the Fort Worth and Dallas area. Currently, a basic command capability is established at the Embassy Suites, Dallas, and operations will be directed out of Recruiting Substation Fort Worth. It is unclear when the command will be fully functional, but the relocating Marines are expected to regroup in Dallas by Tuesday, said Capt....

    LIMA, Peru, Aug. 19, 2005 – Peru has become a leader in confronting terrorism and narcoterrorism, but it's critical that the region's countries all work together to deal with the common threats they face, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said here Aug. 18 during a joint press conference with Peruvian President Alejandro Toledo. "The problems that our respective countries face of terrorism, ... narcotrafficking, hostage-taking (and) crime are problems that no one country can deal with alone," the secretary said in the Peruvian presidential palace. "It requires regional cooperation." Toledo called these challenges a "shared responsibility" among the South American community...

    Would you let you child go fishing alone with a known child molester? Why not? The answer is simple enough: because patterns of behavior are called “patterns of behavior” for a reason, and once someone does something once, they are likely to do it again. Evil people do evil things over and over. Over the last 50 years, the radical left has established a pattern of winning minor precedents from an activist judiciary system then slowly building on those precedents to warp the interpretation of the law and erode the fundamental foundations of our society. The original Supreme Court decisions...

    Terrorists win by just being there. It's the kind of sound-bite interviewers love. Short. Pithy. Seemingly profound. And, best of all, arresting: It paints terrorism as a frightening, irresistible force. There's no shortage of freshly minted "terrorism experts" spouting lines like this on the talk shows, but there's a problem. This view of terrorism is rubbish. Fact is, terrorists rarely win. True, they succeed at killing people -- murdering innocents, destroying property and creating misery -- but that's not their intended goal. Terrorism by definition is violence with a political purpose. And terrorists are terrorists not by choice, but by...

    It's correct that there is political commotion mounting in opposition to the Iraq war. It is important to distinguish between two kinds. One, which is gaining attention, centers on misrepresentations. The so-called Downing Street Memo is cited. This records an exchange at 10 Downing St. on July 23, 2002, at which, it is said, the representatives of Mr. Bush made it clear that the president had resolved to proceed against Iraq irrespective of what the United Nations might do. Rejecting that account, the Bush people have said that the invasion was not finally planned until after the appeal to the...

    I constantly hear liberals decry the policies of George W. Bush, using catch phrases like “out of the mainstream” and “dangerously irresponsible” to describe them. Apparently, if you repeat something often enough, using the same carefully crafted terminology, and applying to it with the same condescending tone each time, it magically becomes the truth... at least in the minds of leftists. And, of course, the primary policy target of left-wingers in Congress remains the war in Iraq, even though nearly all of them supported it initially. As recent polls show support for the war waning, liberals all over the country...

    New York's junior senator yesterday was sharper in her criticism of the Palestinian Authority than Israel's Likud prime minister at the annual policy conference for America's largest pro-Israel lobby. Before thousands of activists of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, Senator Clinton, a Democrat of New York, criticized Palestinian textbooks and other materials that "infect" young minds with anti-Semitism. "Using children as pawns in a political process is tantamount to child abuse," she said to cheers from activists. "And we must say it has to end now." By contrast, the main speaker at the conclusion of the Aipac conference, Prime...

    Today, rioting broke out throughout Washington DC as enraged Americans protested the alleged desecration of the holy Bible by Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Yemen Muslims. The unsubstantiated report of the Bible desecration, was initially aired by Al Jazeera two days ago, then quickly disseminated by the American MSM. Anti-Middle East protests are spreading throughout the city and government officials fear that the rioting will soon extend to other American cities. Thousands of fanatical Americans descended on Middle East embassies where flags were burned and Molotov cocktails were hurled. Major damage was done to virtually every Middle East embassy.

    Every day, the headlines scream with some new threat from the American Civil Liberties Union. I believe it's important to look behind the curtain and discover the origins of groups and organizations to better understand their activities. The ACLU was founded in the 1920s by Roger Baldwin and Crystal Eastman, described as a "progressive" and "the perfect feminist." Earl Browder was general secretary of the Communist Party of the United States from 1930 through its dissolution in 1944. When the party was reconstituted as the Communist Political Association later that year, Browder was chosen as its president. Browder proudly proclaimed...

    A statement posted by the purported deputy of al Qaeda in Iraq, Abu Abdel-Rahman al-Iraqi, very possibly may have completely redefined the War on Terror. It was such a slip of the tongue that one has to wonder whether or not Abu will be allowed to keep his after Abu Musab al Zarqawi gets his hands on him. Unintentional or not, the statement revealed the underlying motives of the Islamic terrorists’ full-blown jihad today. Al Iraqi’s statement, which was posted on a website sympathetic to radical Islamic terrorists, was intended as a public statement of support for Zarqawi and his...

    I find it hard to say this as a conservative, but the current Republican position on judicial filibusters is not in the long-term best interest of either the party, or our nation. And, unfortunately, our conservative leaders and pundits are demonstrating an almost incomprehensible myopia by advocating a procedural change that would prevent such a practice in the future. With those sentiments out of the closet, I can foresee e-mail messages flooding my inbox in much the same way as Obi-Wan Kenobi felt a shift in the force when Princess Leia’s home planet of Alderaan was destroyed by the Empire’s...

    Well now we know. The future and safety of the United States is dependent on the proliferation of freedom and liberty throughout the world. George Bush said so in his inaugural address. Thus the United States is now committed in some vague way to eradicating tyranny, evil, and authoritarian governments around the world. This is a big job. Perhaps when we have that task accomplished we can get to work eliminating sin. Must it be said again? George Bush is a good and decent man, honestly trying to make the world a better place.

Much of our common language is now censored in favor of "political correctness" and it probably will not be long before making any derogatory remark will be a federal felony.

Andy Stern, president of the 1.6 million-member Service Employees International Union, said at the convention two weeks ago that an effort to restructure organized labor could lose momentum under a Democratic administration.

This is an account of how gays deliberately manipulated the levers of power and influence in America.

    'Serious Moral Goals' Somehow this is more infuriating than all the idiocy spouted by all the Michael Moores and Susan Sarandons and Noam Chomskys over the past two years. From the London Daily Telegraph: The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, yesterday urged America to recognise that terrorists can "have serious moral goals." He said that while terrorism must always be condemned, it was wrong to assume its perpetrators were devoid of political rationality. "It is possible to use unspeakably wicked means to pursue an aim that is shared by those who would not dream of acting in the same...

    The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, yesterday urged America to recognise that terrorists can "have serious moral goals". He said that while terrorism must always be condemned, it was wrong to assume its perpetrators were devoid of political rationality. "It is possible to use unspeakably wicked means to pursue an aim that is shared by those who would not dream of acting in the same way, an aim that is intelligible or desirable." He said that in ignoring this, in its criticism of al-Qa'eda, America "loses the power of self-criticism and becomes trapped in a self-referential morality." Dr Williams...

    The U.S. Homeland Security Department yesterday warned that al-Qaeda has made the acquisition of weapons of mass destruction for future attacks a leading priority (see GSN, Sept. 2). In an advisory issued yesterday, Homeland Security said that al-Qaeda has so far not conducted a successful attack using weapons of mass destruction. The department warned, however, that obtaining and using such weapons remains “a top al-Qaeda objective.” “We believe it [al-Qaeda] continues to research more advanced CBRN [chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear] operations, including production of pathogenic organisms and toxins, as well as, high impact dissemination methods such as contamination of...

    The cease-fire and Performance-Based Road Map have proven to be a mere reenactment of the failed 1990s Oslo peace process. Oslo, initiated in 1993, was a step-by-step, five-year plan in which each stage was to build confidence and move the two sides toward a full peace agreement. The improvement made by the more recent plan was to ensure that we would know at the beginning if it was working. We now know it is not. During the seven years of the Oslo process there were reasons for both hope and doubt. But the problems along the way were not supposed...

  • SNIPER (TEAM?) ACCOMPLISHING THREE MAIN GOALS

    The sniper (and his team?) are accomplishing three main goals: First, instill absolute fear on the general populace in a given area. Second, cause the government to overreact and begin to set up for weapons confiscation from the general public. Third, undermine the confidence in the government by portraying it to be ineffective and useless to stop the killing. This indicates that the sniper is not a native (as some here on FR have mentioned). All of the action from the news that has been released seems to point to a very professional operation with goals beyond just killing someone....

    "From a strategic standpoint, the Palestinian suicide bombings may seem incompatible with the goal of attaining statehood. But when this tactic is viewed as a means toward achieving a transformation of the entire Islamic world, then the rationale behind it comes into sharp relief. And if this is the goal, then the Palestinians and al Qaeda are now serving each other's interests...."

"This is it—it's not going to get any better. In fact, it's probably just going to be a gradual but steady decline from here on."       Videk, who for years had...

The essence of the New World Order (NWO) or world management system is that it is management by social engineers, rather than government based on a written constitution. How you are affected by this management system depends on what the social engineers decide the system should do for you and require of you. The social engineers and system managers think of themselves as scientists applying the scientific method to the control of...
