    Progressive radio host and frequent MSNBC guest, Earl Ofari Hutchinson, appeared on MSNBC with Thomas Roberts on Tuesday where he dug into Republican efforts to deflect criticism that state-level voter identification laws are designed to disenfranchise minority voters. Hutchinson said that racially insensitive attacks on President Barack Obama appeal to the GOP’s base voters, personified by a rodeo clown who was recently criticized for wearing an Obama mask. “The relentless racial assault on Obama has been the one unyielding constant from the moment that Obama declared his presidential candidacy in 2007,” Hutchinson recently wrote on his blog. Asked to...

    This is the second of a three-part series on the redistricting process that was dictated by a Proposition voted by the residents of California to take the politics out of the process.Republicans believe that they were hoodwinked by the Democrats in the new redistricting process in California – principally because the Republicans played by the rules specified in the initiative. What they obviously didn’t understand was that the process itself – specifically, how the commission’s members were selected – undermined the Republicans from the outset. The first problem facing the Republicans was finding people willing to sit on the commission,...

    TEL AVIV – A staunch denier of the Holocaust who long served as the deputy of late PLO leader Yasser Arafat served on the committee that invented the military doctrine used by President Obama as the main justification for U.S. and international airstrikes against Libya. As WND first reported, billionaire philanthropist George Soros is a primary funder and key proponent of the Global Centre for Responsibility to Protect, the world's leading organization pushing the military doctrine. Several of the doctrine's main founders sit on multiple boards with Soros. The doctrine and its founders, as WND reported, have been deeply tied...

  • "Salvaging Our North Korea Policy" (Critiques Failed BUSH Admin. Approach) - JOHN BOLTON

    Salvaging Our North Korea Policy.... By JOHN R. BOLTON There are signs, albeit small ones, that the Bush administration may be reaching the end of its patience with the Six-Party Talks on North Korea's nuclear weapons program. These signs could prove illusory. But as it nears its end, the administration has a serious responsibility: It must not leave its successor with an ongoing, failed policy. At a minimum, President Bush should not bequeath to the next president only the burned-out hulk of the Six-Party Talks, and countless failed and violated North Korean commitments. Since they were conceived in spring 2003,...
  • North Korea coming off US terror list (according to North Korea)

    SEOUL (AFP) — North Korea said Monday that the United States has decided to remove it from a list of states sponsoring terrorism -- a crucial step towards the normalisation of relations between the two countries. The US decision came at a weekend meeting between the chief nuclear negotiators of the two countries in Geneva, a foreign ministry spokesman told the official Korean Central News Agency. "Both sides discussed the issue of taking practical measures to neutralise the existing nuclear facilities in the DPRK (North Korea) within this year and agreed on them," the spokesman said. "In return for this...

    For the last century, many "progressive" intellectuals responsible for shaping the way Americans think about guns, corporations, the legal system, sex, and even their very history have been completely fabricating the facts, according to new blockbuster book by award-winning writer and producer Jack Cashill. In "Hoodwinked: How Intellectual Hucksters Have Hijacked American Culture," Cashill shows that despite this massive fraud, the cultural establishment has "published, praised, promoted, and protected" these "intellectual hucksters" and their destructive fabrications. Cashill says he could not believe his good luck when "pseudo-Indian and fabricator par excellence Ward Churchill" first made the news. Cashill had been...
  • Black Democrats would like reciprocation of party loyalty

    Tallahassee Democrat ^ | Wed, May. 04, 2005
    Black Democrats complained today that their party demands loyalty from them without giving any back when it counts. It was the second spat this week underscoring the frayed nerves, weariness and pent-up resentments that often beset lawmakers in the final week of a 60-day legislative session. This time, the spark was a floor vote - which broke down on racial lines - confirming the ouster of former Broward County Supervisor of Elections Miriam Oliphant. On Monday, it was women objecting to abortion legislation. Both times, a proposal to take a "caucus position" on pending issues caused the rift. "I find...

    Fiedor Report On the News #317 ^ | 9-19-04 | Doug Fiedor
    Before the real news, there's a little interesting background news we should take care of. This comes from the "Be careful who you blame department," because everything is not always exactly as it looks. We've been hoodwinked. Yeah, you, me, all of us. It appears to me that there is a major scam afoot. It's kind of funny, in a sick sort of way; but it is a flimflam nonetheless. First, we know that Dan Rather and his cohorts at CBS have a major bias. Among other things, they "fixed" a certain "60 Minutes" program many years ago to pump...
  • New theory for Iraq's missing WMD: Saddam was fooled into thinking he had them

    New theory for Iraq's missing WMD: Saddam was fooled into thinking he had them Richard Norton-Taylor and Julian Borger in Washington Wednesday December 24, 2003 The Guardian British officials are circulating a story that Saddam Hussein may have been hoodwinked into believing that Iraq really did possess weapons of mass destruction. The theory, which is doing the rounds in the upper reaches of Whitehall, is the result of an attempt to find what one official source called a "logical reason" why no chemical and biological weapons had been found in Iraq.
