    The new political drama Lee Daniels' The Butler takes its cues from a Washington Post article about a black servant named Eugene Allen who worked in eight presidential administrations. That part of the story is essentially unchanged. The rest of the film, a movie stuffed with politics, historical re-creations and presidential imitations, is rife with inaccuracies that should be corrected. Note: Some story spoilers ahead ... President Ronald Reagan was indifferent to the suffering of people of color. Breitbart News reported this week that Reagan biographer Craig Shirley shredded this notion by detailing the president's legislative achievements and personal outtreach...

    SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - Earl Taylor has spent 31 years teaching that "the Founding Fathers have answers to nearly every problem we have in America today." Only in recent months has he found so many eager students. On a recent Saturday, he held the rapt attention of 70 of them. The eight-hour seminar held at a roadside inn here was one of half a dozen "Making of America" sessions nationwide that day, all sponsored by a little-known organization based in Idaho. Two years ago, Taylor, president of the National Center for Constitutional Studies, made about 35 trips to speak to small...

    Family Guy is an animated sitcom that airs on the Fox Network. I am guilty of watching this show. So, before any Liberal thinks this is another Conservative bashing a show he has never seen, SHUT UP. I will admit the while show makes me laugh, there are more times than I can count when I am offended by the bigoted content of the show. That is why I have stopped watching the show since its infamous time travel episode where Brian the Dog and the Baby Stewie went back in time to Nazi Germany. On top of that, the...

    Report says that more than $45 billion of the estimate is either in error or undocumented. The State Auditor's Office this morning released a report challenging the validity of almost half of a purported $86 billion shortfall in Texas transportation funding over the next generation, and cautioning that the gap estimate "may not be reliable for making policy or funding decisions." That $86 billion figure has been cited repeatedly by Texas Department of Transportation officials and some legislators as a major reason for the state's increasing need for new toll roads. The number is a compilation of estimates from local...

    FROM WND'S JERUSALEM BUREAU By Aaron Klein © 2006 WorldNetDaily.com TEL AVIV – With almost all votes counted from yesterday's national elections, Kadima leader Ehud Olmert is set to become Israel's next prime minister as results showed his party won the most Knesset seats by a slim majority. During his victory speech last night, Olmert made clear his administration will immediately seek to "evacuate Jews" from most of the West Bank. Kadima officials also have stated the party would seek to give parts of Jerusalem to the Palestinians to form a state. "The people have spoken clearly, they want Kadima,"...
  • It’s "Their Land" RE: Palestinian Claims to Israel

    Note: This article may seem pedantic, but it is aimed at those who are not “insiders” on the history of the Middle East.I keep hearing the phrase, “It’s their land,” regarding Palestinian claims to Israel. Terrorist groups like Hamas and Islamic Jihad publicly assert that their aims are to reclaim every inch of Israel as part of a proposed Palestinian homeland. Unfortunately, these ownership claims are echoed by “activist” groups like the International Solidarity Movement and the Palestine Solidarity Movement, both with throngs of naïve followers on U.S. and European college campuses. The followers are too eager to take these...
  • Jon Stewart, 'You Magnificent B*stard!' I Read Your Book - (Truth or Entertainment?)

    Dear Jon, So “America (the Book)” was named Book of the Year by Publishers Weekly. More than successful, it’s a cultural phenomenon. I had to see what all the shouting’s about. If your goal was money and self-promotion, congratulations. If you had a higher goal, close but no cigar. Begin with the Foreword “by” Thos. Jefferson. Ol’ Tom was one of the greatest political thinkers in history. I’m not going to pick on deliberate falsehoods or fake quotes. Nor brevity, nor attempts at humor. Just flat-out, factual errors. You have Jefferson say “we” composed “the Declaration and the Constitution.” You...
  • Lies, Inaccuracies, Misstatements And Misquotes…. Kerry Wins.

    Snap polls of viewers by many news outlets right after the debate began to reveal that those polled thought that Kerry "won" last night's debate... As this debate is further reviewed, any “victory” bestowed on Mr. Kerry may be found to be premature. If the number of lies, misquotes, factual inaccuracies and misstatements used by each candidate is any indicator of "victory", then Kerry was clearly the big winner in a shutout. In a debate, even in a "question/answer" format as in last night's event, if the facts and information that you use to undermine your opponent or advocate your...

    Damn, I hate it when I've been had and I've been had big time. In 1982, while I was working for Congressman Manuel Lujan of New Mexico, a man came up to a me during a gathering in Albuquerque and introduced himself as Terrance J. Wilkinson. He said he was a security consultant and gave me a business card with his name and just a Los Angeles phone number. A few weeks later, he called my Washington office and asked to meet for lunch. He seemed to know a lot about the nuclear labs in New Mexico and said he...
