    EXCLUSIVE: Michigan Cops Say Diva Michelle Obama "Won't Be Seen With Us, Allow Us in Her Presence" By Debbie Schlussel I thought that we were about to elect a President, not a queen.

    Hundreds of educators have endorsed a letter opposing the "demonization" of Williams Ayers – the domestic terrorist who helped launch Barack Obama's poliltical career, and whose relationship with the Democratic presidential candidate continues to be major controversy – arguing that frequent reports of his involvement in domestic bombings are "designed to intimidate free thinking and stifle critical dialogue." "We write to support our colleague Professor William Ayers, Distinguished Professor of Education and Senior University Scholar at the University of Illinois at Chicago, who is currently under determined and sustained political attack," reads the letter, available for endorsement at "The...

    It was extremely unlikely that Hillary Clinton was going to overcome Barack Obama's lead in delegates, states and total votes and take the Democratic nomination, but Obama's speech this morning -- graceful, thoughtful, nuanced, sweeping, challenging, unprecedented -- pretty much wiped out any chance at all. It was a speech Hillary could never have given -- really, few U.S. politicians ever could have given. I write this not just because I think this will dampen the Rev. Wright controversy. I write this because Obama did an extraordinary job of presenting himself as the candidate of "the better angels of our...

    Waterbury Republican-American ^ | February 6, 2008 | Editorial
    Historians credit left-wingers with coining "politics of fear" to belittle Sen. Joseph McCarthy's campaign against communists in the U.S. government. The phrase went into hibernation in the 1960s, a torpidity even warmonger-in-waiting Lyndon Johnson's daisy-girl ad couldn't disturb, only to reemerge in the 1980s to denigrate Ronald Reagan's Cold War-winning strategy. These days, the phrase has become the lefties' No. 1 rhetorical trump card against the war against Islamic terrorism. To them, Americans have more to fear from the Bush administration than from the terrorists who seek to bring America to heel. Sen. Barack Obama uses it in almost every...

    The true novelty of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's appearance Monday at Columbia University did not, as many critics would have it, lie in the fact that an august Ivy League institution had invited the Iranian president—a Holocaust denier, authoritarian leader, and sponsor of terrorism—to speak on its campus. The protests, the fury, the screaming New York tabloid headlines, the counterarguments about free speech—all that sort of thing we have seen before. No, the novelty of Ahmadinejad's appearance at Columbia lies in the fact that he wanted to make that speech at all. Though a blustering Columbia dean foolishly told Fox News that...

    When Americans evaluate today's political landscape, most feel something between impotence and disapproval. So, while citizens shake their heads or shrug at the mainstream media's “top tier” presidential candidates, it is extraordinary how many are becoming overjoyed about one lesser covered candidate. Tens-of-thousands have joined the appropriately named Ron Paul Revolution, joining groups, putting up signs, and crossing states to attend rallies. Congressman Ron Paul's genuine message and untarnished record of promoting individual liberty for everyone, a free-market economy of wealth and abundance, and a foreign policy of non-intervention, peace and free trade, has attracted vast support from diverse...

I watched some of Tuesday's House testimony by former CIA analyst and head Bin Laden hunter Michael Scheuer on C-SPAN. *snip* .. he made a vitriolic attack on your work on the secret prisons story. His basic viewpoint could be summed up as "people are trying to kill Americans -- we have to kill those people and if innocents suffer along the way, tough."

Now, filmmaker Robert Greenwald is releasing a documentary which argues that private companies helping to fight the war in Iraq don't have the nation's best interests in mind. "Iraq for Sale: The War Profiteers" debuts in limited release this week, and presents an assault on companies that provide the kinds of services in Iraq that the military once handled itself, such as supplying food, water and mail delivery for the reconstruction. In the film, former KBR/Halliburton water purification specialist Ben Carter is interviewed and says when...

    BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.

The academy’s governors approved a new process in judging foreign-language films, allowing New York-area academy members to participate in the selection for the first time, according to a statement issued last week. A shortlist of films from nine countries will be chosen by the same Los Angeles screening committee that has traditionally viewed the approximately 60 submissions. That shortlist will...

    The poem by seven–year-old Autum Ashante ”White Nationalism Put U in Bondage,” has caused quite a stir in some circles but it shouldn’t have. It is the truth and Blacks who read their history know it is. The fact that the Pikesville, N.Y. school system has banned this young child from performing without doing its homework, is an indication of how little history our children are learning in our schools about what really happened in this country from slavery days to the present. Autum, the daughter of a Nation of Islam poet and activist, is no stranger to the Black...

    The Demorats opposed supporting democracy in Vietnam and as a result the North Vietnamese made John Kerry one of their heroes, and then the Demorats elected this traitor as their standard bearer in 2004. Their mantra for Iraq is the same thing as it was for Vietnam, irrespective of the votes for the war that they now claim they would like to take back. Why do they want to take them back? Because Bush has no right to use their strong arguments against Saddam - of 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2002 - to...

    Three invited pro-military speakers were shocked last Friday when they arrived for a West Seattle High student assembly to confront a theater stage strewn with figures costumed as Iraqi men, women and children splashed with blood. It was a warm-up for the "Iraq Awareness Assembly" so no students except the actual actors saw the skit before the military guests complained to principal Susan Derse and she put a stop to it. And here comes the crucial part: no teachers or advisers were on hand or evidently even aware of the content although that part is one of several things still...

Protesters, organized by the anti-war group Not in Our Name, said they felt compelled to air their beliefs about Iraq and the leadership of a president they feel does not represent their interests. Another protest was planned for Jan. 20, the first day of the president's second term.

Bush "was our President" and she insisted that "of course" Al Gore would have been just as "tough" on terrorism. Former CBS News correspondent Meredith Vieira, who participated Sunday in an anti-Bush march, seemed similarly ignorant, scolding Giuliani: "The implication is that if you disagree, I think, with the administration that somehow you are on the side of the terrorists.

    Republican National Committee chairman Ed Gillespie blasted Democratic presidential frontrunner Howard Dean on Friday for suggesting that President Bush may have been warned in advance about the 9/11 attacks. "It's breathtaking that someone running for president in either party would float the notion that the president of the United States would have had prior information and knowledge of what was to come on Sept. 11 and did not act on it," the top Republican told radio host Laura Ingraham. "It is astounding to me," Gillespie added. "It's unbelievable, the kind of things that Howard Dean is willing to say." During...

    A ghoulish Internet video game challenging players to shoot down passenger jets before they hit the twin towers is a huge hit - outraging families of Sept. 11 victims. "My daughter was on one of the planes," Tom Roger, father of slain American Airlines flight attendant Jean Roger, told the Daily News. "To think people are making it a game is pretty bizarre. But there are a lot of sick people out there," he said. The game, New York Defender, was launched on the French Web site a month after terrorist hijackers attacked the World Trade Center. It has...

    LENIN is supposed to have referred to blind defenders and apologists for the Soviet Union in the Western democracies as "useful idiots." Yet even Lenin might have been surprised at how far these useful idiots would carry their partisanship in later years -- including our own times......

    Has Hollywood Abandoned America? Where has Hollywood gone? Has Hollywood abandoned America? During the events leading up to Operation Iraqi Freedom, we heard the collective cries of the anti-war celebrities as their patriotism and loyalty was called into question. However, at a time when they have had ample opportunity to prove their critics wrong, Hollywood remains conspicuously absent. Hollywood has once again failed to support America in her time of need. This despite the fact that many celebrities enjoy the lifestyle afforded them due to the patronage of the American public. It's our money spent on movie tickets and DVDs...

    Rockers Unite to Oust Bush Moby, Henley, Matthews ask fans to "get involved" Bruce Springsteen told a crowd of 50,000 New Yorkers on October 4th to "shout a little louder if you want the president impeached." Two weeks later, John Mellencamp posted an open letter to America on his Web site, declaring, "We have been lied to and terrorized by our own government, and it is time to take action." Meanwhile, Moby, Eddie Vedder and Michael Stipe are organizing a TV-ad campaign that will run anti-Bush commercials during the week of the State of the Union address in January; Dave...

    Straight talk It's not anti-Americanism, it's anti-Republicanism Zafar Sobhan I don't often find myself in agreement with much that pop stars have to say about the state of the world, but British singer Elton John's words at a benefit concert last month hit the nail right on the head. Dennis Miller the one-time comedian from Saturday Night Live who has bizarrely chosen to reincarnate himself as the Bush administration's court jester had just finished one of his typical sets in which he denigrated liberals, Arabs, Muslims, and non-Americans in general. Before he sat down to perform, John remarked, "This night...

We know Republicans are willing to politicize the attacks of September 11. Karl Rove explicitly told them to do so in the 2002 elections, and the Republicans even sold a September 11 picture of George W. Bush to raise money. But now the Bush attack machine has crossed the line again. The RNC has released an advertisement that questions our Democratic candidates' commitment...
  • A Plea For Equality In Media Coverage Of DC Sniper John Muhammed

    A brief plea for reality in coverage of the trial of DC sniper John Muhammad. Today, a jury did the right thing and recommended the death penalty for the man who brought death to so many others. Perhaps if we considered the terror he struck into the civic soul of those living near our nation’s capitol, there might have been an even worse sentence imposed. The problem of Mr. Muhammad’s repeated rampages is over, but the basic unfairness of the news coverage surrounding his killing spree continues. In virtually every report about Mr. Muhammad, the newscaster mentions that he is...

    LONDON — George W. Bush's visit to London this week will be historic for at least two reasons. He will be the first U.S. president to come to Britain on a state visit. He will also observe a bizarre political marriage: one between the remnants of the Marxist-Leninist Left and militant Islamists. Negotiated over the past two years, the "wedding," will be celebrated in a mass demonstration against Bush's visit. The demonstration is organized by a shadowy group called "Stop the War Coalition," part of the Hate-America-International, which has orchestrated a number of street "events" in support of the Taliban...

With your help, on Sunday, December 7th, we'll hold thousands of house parties across the country to screen the new documentary Uncovered: The Whole Truth about the Iraq War. The documentary clearly describes, in the words of experts and former intelligence officials, how President Bush and his administration manipulated evidence to take our country to war. We've been to a few screenings, and...

    One of the men accused of the Washington sniper killings has been found guilty of murder, terrorism, conspiracy and a firearms charge. John Allen Muhammad, 42, now may face the death penalty.

He may also face other charges relating to the killings, which left 10 dead and three wounded. Along with his alleged accomplice, 18-year-old Lee Boyd Malvo, he is also accused of three murders and three counts of wounding in the state of...
