    Following our story on Rubio’s partying days and arrest in a known gay “hookup” site, the interwebs have lit up in his defense, but not quite from where you would expect. While CNN and Fox News have done all that they can to hide from the story, the liberal publication, the Daily Beast, has come out swinging from the trees like an angry orangutan to beat down anyone who whispers the words, “foam party.” The defense is surprising considering that Chelsea Clinton sits on the board of IAC, the parent company of the Daily Beast. Their tactic to protect Rubio?...

    Twenty-five years after its revolution of 1979, Iran has yet again become too big of a problem for Washington to play politics with. Fortunately, commencing his second-term, President George W. Bush is in a unique position of strength. On the one hand, he is less vulnerable to special interests in Washington seeking confrontation with Iran. On the other hand, his strong record on national security grants him enough political maneuverability to solve America's Persian puzzle once and for all by easing the increasingly costly and unsustainable policy of isolating Iran in return for an end to Iran's objectionable policies.

"It seems clear that a guilty verdict will set off catastrophic violence" and that a death sentence would be even worse, Clark told a Washington press conference. "It's hard to know how many Iraqis, dozens, hundreds, thousands, will die because of the sentence," he said.

An open letter, published on a Web site called ``Take Back the Memorial'' and purportedly signed by 14 family groups, urged the boycott.

    Witch hunts. Red-baiting. McCarthyism. Inquisition. Since the passing of the Patriot Act, the emergence of an enigmatic no-fly list and the galvanizing push to wage war on Iraq, critics have used the above terms to characterize the pro-war camp and its supporting press, both of which were seen as recklessly and manipulatively branding all dissenters as unpatriotic, and sometimes treasonous and traitorous as well. "100,000 march to give comfort and aid to Saddam," read one headline following the first large anti-war protest in the capital. Untold however, was the ironic story of a similar struggle within the anti-war camp, where...

    One of the leading “America bashers” on the political scene today has endorsed John Kerry for president. Speaking to reporters after a February 27 Washington press conference to rally support for Haiti’s Marxist President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, Ramsey Clark said he’s voting for Kerry because he would take U.S. foreign policy in a new direction. This is certainly the case. Kerry told the New York Daily News editorial board that he would have intervened “unilaterally” with U.S. troops if necessary to save Aristide’s corrupt regime from a popular rebellion. Aristide, who developed a reputation for brutalizing and killing his political opponents,...

    WASHINGTON -- The cry of "McCarthyism" has weakened America before her enemies. While a group called international A.N.S.W.E.R has organized (sometimes violent) appeasement protests throughout the nation leading up to and during the war in Iraq, there is no established committee in Congress assigned to investigate this group. Such a probe would not abridge anyone’s freedom of speech, but would determine if enemy forces are trying influence U.S. policy. There is no committee to follow up on documentation by hard-leftist-turned-conservative activist David Horowitz that ANSWER is "a front for the Communist Workers World Party with tentacles stretching around the globe."...

    View From The Left: Peace KooksBy Michelle | October 17, 2002 On Oct. 6, an antiwar movement seemed to have blossomed in New York. A sea of people -- newspaper estimates ran from 10,000 to 20,000 -- filled Central Park's East Meadow to protest a possible U.S. invasion of Iraq. And yes, there were the usual suspects, like the girl from the Revolutionary Communist Youth Brigade who donned a kaffiyeh and hurled red-faced imprecations against capitalist tyranny. But there were many more average people, the kind who don't usually spend their sunny Sunday afternoons demonstrating against government policy --...

    Iraqi-Americans converged outside the United Nations Wednesday to demand what they call the liberation of the Iraqi people from the regime of Saddam Hussein. A small group of demonstrators hoisted signs emblazoned with the words, stop Saddam's war on the Iraqi people, indict Saddam for war crimes, and Saddam is a criminal and my brother's killer. They also held pictures of victims of Saddam Husseins's mustard gas attack that killed 5,000 Kurds in 1988. Ten-year-old Huda al-Massiri held a picture of two men in her hands. "These are my two uncles. Saddam killed both of them," said Huda al-Massiri. The...

    <p>WASHINGTON - As we prepare to watch President George Bush give his State of the Union address on Tuesday, we think back to Jan. 18 when Saddam's surrogates were in town protesting any use of force against Iraq.</p> <p>In scenes reminiscent of the anti-draft, peace-at-any-price days of Vietnam, some 70,000 demonstrators rallied, marched and orated in Washington and as many again were doing the same in San Francisco. There were smaller efforts in other American cities, along with shows of even greater anti-American enthusiasm surging in some foreign capitals.</p>

    3/31 UPDATE ON APRIL 20 SCENARIO FROM A.N.S.W.E.R. COALITION Last Saturday, March 23, an agreement was reached between the principal coalitions calling anti-war demonstrations on April 20 to hold a unity rally that would be co-chaired and organized following the convergence of the respective marches on April 20.
