    With two Pulitzer Prizes to her name, Dana Priest is one of the Washington Post’s most celebrated reporters. Until Monday, when the Post published the first installment of a bombshell series on post-9/11 intelligence industrial complex, national security blogger William Arkin was hardly known to the paper’s readers. But from a media perspective, Arkin’s role as co-author of the series might be the more important. It marks the first time one of the Post’s bloggers – lately the cause of controversy because they sometimes blur opinion and reporting — has had a byline in one of the paper’s big, investigative...
  • Siljander pleads guilty in Islamic American Relief Agency lobbying case

    07/09/2010 9:23:47 PM PDT · by Chet 99 · 5 replies
    Thursday, July 8, 2010 A former congressman pleaded guilty Wednesday to serving as an unregistered agent in Washington for a Missouri-based Islamic charity that the federal government said had ties to international terrorism. It was an odd outcome for Mark D. Siljander, who said he wanted to help bridge the gulf between Muslims and Christians. A Republican who attained one of Michigan's congressional seats from 1981 to 1987 with assistance from the Moral Majority, Siljander was outspoken about conservative social issues. Siljander confirmed in a Kansas City, Mo., court that he contacted members of Congress in an effort to lift...

    Bicycles instead of cars? Dense apartment clusters instead of single homes? Community rituals instead of churches? "Human rights" instead of religious freedom? The UN Conference on Human Settlements (Habitat II) which met June 3-14 [1996]in Istanbul, painted an alarming picture of the 21st century community. The American ways-free speech, individualism, travel, and Christianity-are out. A new set of economic, environmental, and social guidelines are in. Citizenship, democracy, and education have been redefined. Handpicked civil leaders will implement UN "laws", bypassing state and national representatives to work directly with the UN. And politically correct "tolerance"-meaning "the rejection of dogmatism and absolutism"...
  • Walter Cronkite Promoted a World Government-1999 Speech

    Speech on acceptance of the Norman Cousins Global Governance Award 1999 | October 19, 1999 | Walter Cronkite
    WALTER CRONKITE PROMOTES DEMOCRATIC FEDERAL WORLD GOVERNMENT (Received W.F.A.'s Norman Cousins Global Governance Award on 19 October 1999} I am greatly honored to receive this award for two reasons: first, I believe as Norman Cousins did that the first priority of humankind in this era is to establish an effective system of world law that will assure peace with justice among the peoples of the world; second, I feel sentimental about this award because half a century ago Norman offered me a job as spokesman and Washington lobbyist for the World Federalist organization, which was then in its infancy. I...

    As if Ron Paul's supporters needed any more motivation to storm the battlements and wreak havoc on the Republican presidential primary, now comes this: the feds are trying to take away their money. Federal agents on Wednesday raided the Evansville, Indiana headquarters of the National Organization for the Repeal of the Federal Reserve and Internal Revenue Codes (NORFED), an organization of "sound money" advocates that for the past decade has been selling what it calls Liberty Dollars, a private currency it says is backed by silver and gold stored in Idaho, with a total of more than $20 million in...

    The Heritage Foundation ^ | August 18, 2006 | Lee A. Casey and David B. Rivkin, Jr.
    Introduction Americans have pretty much always felt entitled to make law for themselves. As Virginia royal governor Alexander Spotswood complained 60 years before the Declaration of Independence, “by their professions and actions they [the colonials] seem to allow no jurisdiction, civil or ecclesiastical, but what is estab­lished by laws of their own making.”[1] That position was vindicated by the Revolution and remained unchallenged in any serious way for two centuries. Today, however, there is an advanced and determined movement afoot that—through the mechanisms of international law and super-national institutions—does challenge the right of the United States to define its own...

    The Texas segment of the NAFTA Super Corridor is moving rapidly toward approval. When built, the Trans-Texas Corridor, or TTC, will be a major super-highway with six lanes moving in each direction, twelve lanes across in total, described in the 4,000 page draft environmental study as including separate lanes "for passenger vehicles and large trucks, freight railways, high-speed commuter railways, and a corridor for utilities including water lines, oil and natural gas pipelines, and transmission lines for electricity, broadband and other telecommunications services." The TTC is expected to follow the current lines of Interstate 35, stretching from Laredo, Texas, on...

    Thursday, April 28, 2005 THE NEW WORLD DISORDER Free-trade pact a threat to U.S. sovereignty? Activists hammers idea to expand NAFTA throughout Americas Posted: April 28, 2005 1:00 a.m. Eastern By Ron Strom © 2005 WorldNetDaily.com Opposition is fierce, at least online, to the creation of the Free Trade Area of the Americas, with detractors saying such an agreement between Western Hemisphere nations would mean an end to U.S. sovereignty. First proposed in 1994, the pact would enlarge NAFTA, the North America Free Trade Agreement, to include all of the nations of the Americas except Cuba. FTAA supporters say the...

    The United States has proposed demanding passenger lists from all foreign airlines that fly over US airspace, even if they do not plan to land. The idea has angered European, Canadian and Mexican airlines, which will be most affected. At the moment, flights that take off or land in the US have to provide passenger lists. The measure was introduced after September 11 to help authorities keep track of the movements of people on terrorist watch lists. Now the Transport Security Administration is considering expanding the requirement to flights merely passing through American airspace. It says it is talking with...
  • Tulsa Talks process draws criticism

    02/14/2005 9:39:19 PM PST · by hedgetrimmer · 9 replies · 688+ views
    A controversial community process called Tulsa Talks is drawing a host of criticism because its purpose, backing and methods are misleading. The stated goal of Tulsa Talks is to form study circles of 10, each with a trained facilitator, to get feedback from the public concerning Tulsas education efforts. The goal is to have 10,000 Tulsans trained in 1,000 groups. Critics are saying Tulsa Talks is a thinly disguised effort to sway public opinion using the Delphi process, a strategy that invites input but dismisses it in favor of a predetermined line of thought. Study circles have been used in...

    The insanity that the title suggests is not new. Its apparently been around since the 1940's. "Within days of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, politicians, military leaders, scientists, and newspaper editors across the United States began the acrimonious debate over the future of the atomic bomb." ... "The issues immediately after the war revolved around the following questions : Should the bomb be placed under military or civilian control ? Should the United States relinquish the bomb and its secrets to an international commission in an effort to prevent an all-out war" ... "President Truman had expressed his support...

    THE LIBERTY COMMITTEE ^ | March 13th, 2004 | Dr./Rep. Ron Paul
    May 13, 2004 The United Nations' decades-old scheme to set up an international authority to tax Americans at the same time they take control of over 70 percent of the Earth's surface -- the Law of the Sea Treaty -- is getting a lot of attention in Washington. That attention is what we fought to achieve, and it is exactly what the internationalists behind Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) wanted to avoid. They hoped to sneak this flawed treaty through the Senate while no one was looking. Since our last update, March 16, 2004, both the Senate Committee on...

    The Bias Towards Brutality and Totalitarianism By Carroll Andrew Morse On February 29, the United Nations Security Council unanimously approved the deployment of peacekeeping troops to Haiti. Before Jean-Bertrand Aristide fled the country, supporters of foreign intervention disagreed about its proper goals. Senator John Kerry and a significant number of Congressional Democrats, for example, felt that it was appropriate to use military action to keep Aristide in power despite widespread and credible charges of anti-democratic intimidation and corruption. Other supporters of military action, led by the Bush administration and the government of France, saw no special value in protecting...

    But less positive than last year about U.S. image abroad PRINCETON, NJ -- Most Americans continue to believe that the United States should play at least a major role in trying to solve international problems, and a small majority believes the United States is viewed favorably by the rest of the world. But majorities also believe that President George W. Bush is not respected by foreign leaders and disapprove of the way Bush has handled foreign affairs. Overall, Americans are about evenly divided as to whether they are satisfied or dissatisfied with the position of the United States in...

    An editorial in last Thursday’s (November 13, 2003) New York Times offered President Bush some advice: “Transfer political authority to a newly created United Nations administration.” This, argued the Times, would be a “much better way to manage the process” of transferring governing authority to Iraqi officials; but it warned that “a rushed American withdrawal without an orderly handoff to the UN would leave Iraq open to just the kind of mixture of misgovernment and terrorism that the White House waged this war to prevent.” For many, the Times' prescription makes sense. Not only does it appeal to the visceral isolationism (that...
