    You remember those, right?If you ever wonder where delusional left-wingers get their ideas that what is happening in the world, it's useful to know your history. They didn't just start believing crazy things when George W. Bush won the Florida recount, or when dastardly Republicans started criticizing Barack Obama. They've been this way for a long time.And as is so often the case, the insanity is influenced and often led by figures in pop culture. REM front man Michael Stipe provided a perfect example in a recent statement about why, back in the 1980s, he decided not to get tested...

    BRISTOL, VA (WJHL) - A Virginia newspaper reports a possible use for the vacant Virginia Intermont facility. As the country is faced with a surge in minors arriving on their own from Central America, federal Department of Health and Human Service officials are scrambling to find places to house the children. The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that U.S officials are in talks of temporarily sheltering unaccompanied immigrant children on the campus of shuttered Saint Paul’s College in Lawrenceville. Among the discussions, is the possibility of housing the children at Virginia Intermont College in Bristol. According to Richmond Times-Dispatch, federal Department of...

    U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia told law students at the University of Hawaii on Monday that the nation's highest court was wrong to uphold the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II, but he wouldn't be surprised if the court issued a similar ruling during a future conflict. Scalia was responding to a question about the court's 1944 decision in Korematsu v. United States, which upheld the convictions of Gordon Hirabayashi and Fred Korematsu for violating an order to report to an internment camp. "Well of course Korematsu was wrong. And I think we have repudiated in a later...

    Justice Antonin Scalia predicts that the Supreme Court will eventually authorize another a wartime abuse of civil rights such as the internment camps for Japanese Americans during World War II. "You are kidding yourself if you think the same thing will not happen again," Scalia told the University of Hawaii law school while discussing Korematsu v. United States, the ruling in which the court gave its imprimatur to the internment camps.

    There is one problem with the entirely justified if self-interested media squawking about the Justice Department snooping into the phone records of multiple Associated Press reporters and Fox News's James Rosen. The problem is that what the AP reporters and Rosen did arguably violates the letter of the law. The search warrant in the Rosen case cites Section 793(d) of Title 18 of the U.S. Code. Section 793(d) says that a person lawfully in possession of information that the government has classified as secret who turns it over to someone not lawfully entitled to posses it has committed a crime....

    Talk-radio icon Rush Limbaugh today suggested the existence of U.S. elections is now threatened by a move he expects President Obama to pursue – a mass amnesty for illegal aliens – following the passage of his massive health-care reform plan. "The next big push will be amnesty for ... millions of illegal immigrants who are here," he said on his radio program. "Obama's gonna need their votes in 2012. The Democrats are going to need their votes in every election from now on – if we have elections, and I'm not joking. "The Constitution has just been ripped to shreds,...

    Campaign recruiting for workers at 'civilian resettlement facility' An ad campaign featured on a U.S. Army website seeking those who would be interested in being an "Internment/Resettlement" specialist is raising alarms across the country, generating concerns that there is some truth in those theories about domestic detention camps, a roundup of dissidents and a crackdown on "threatening" conservatives. The ads, at the GoArmy.com website as well as others including Monster.com, cite the need for: "Internment/Resettlement (I/R) Specialists in the Army are primarily responsible for day-to-day operations in a military confinement/correctional facility or detention/internment facility. I/R Specialists provide rehabilitative, health, welfare,...

    The internment of the Japanese Americans of Washington, Oregon and California will never happen again. But our constitutional rights are always at risk when we believe we are under threat of attack, which is why the internment remains a live issue.In 1942 the federal government interned 112,000 ethnic Japanese, most of them U.S. citizens and most of them for the duration of World War II. The ostensible reason was that they could not be trusted. Most historians say it was done from hysteria and racial fear. That is also the view I heard from my Seattle family, and the...

    This is meant to protect them from the fighting between government forces and separatist rebels, says Jakarta JAKARTA - As fighting intensifies in Aceh, Indonesia's government plans to start rounding up thousands of civilians in tent camps and intern them for short spells as the military cleanses hot spots of rebel fighters. The programme could affect villages located within the Pidie, Bireuen and East Aceh regencies within a matter of days and be expanded into other areas in the troubled province according to need and the progress of the military crackdown. Senior officials explained interning villages would enable soldiers to...

    Billion SARS cases feared By Mary Papadakis 27Apr03 MORE than one billion people worldwide could be infected by the deadly SARS virus within a year, a leading UK scientist has warned. Dr Patrick Dixon, a specialist in predicting global trends based at London's Development Management School, said SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) had the potential to turn into a pandemic and infect more people than AIDS. The grim prediction comes as a Melbourne infection control specialist warned the virus could destroy Third World countries. Glenys Harrington, who flew to Manila yesterday to join the World Health Organisation's assault on SARS,...

    HUNDE, China — An hour south of Guangzhou, the Dongyuan animal market presents endless opportunities for an emerging germ. In hundreds of cramped stalls that stink of blood and guts, wholesale food vendors tend to veritable zoos that will grace Guangdong Province's tables: snakes, chickens, cats, turtles, badgers, frogs. And, in summer, sometimes rats, too.They are all stacked in cages one on top of another — which in turn serve as seats, card tables and dining quarters for the poor migrants who work there. On a recent morning, near stall 17, there were beheaded snakes, disemboweled frogs and feathers...

    PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -- A Brown University faculty member and a 2-year-old Minnesota boy are being monitored as possible SARS cases - both recent visitors to Toronto.

More than 250 probable or suspected cases have been reported in the Toronto area, with 19 deaths so far. The unnamed Brown faculty member in the division of biology and medicine has been asked to stay away from campus. Students who have been in contact with the professor have been informed, according to...

    4,000 Quarantined in Beijing as Suspected SARS Cases Climb EIJING, April 25 — At least 4,000 Beijing residents with exposure to a contagious respiratory disease are being kept in isolation, often in their own homes, health authorities said today, and a second major hospital was put under total quarantine, with virtually no one allowed to enter or leave. City education officials also revealed that 300 college students who had contact with infected people suffering the dangerous new disease, known as SARS, have been sequestered in a military training camp for two weeks' observation. As Beijing began a stringent new quarantine...

    When ninth-term Republican Congressman Howard Coble of North Carolina defended President Roosevelt's 1942 decision to relocate all Japanese-Americans from our three West Coast states, both the New York Times and the wire services broadcast the denunciation of Mr. Coble by the national executive director of the Japanese-American Citizens League. Congressman Coble, chairman of a house subcommittee on domestic security, said it had been appropriate to intern Japanese-Americans during World War II, because this was for their own safety to protect them from a hostile citizenry. "We were at war, under attack by a sovereign nation," he said. To which John...

    Mixed feelings over San Pedro film event NO SHOW: Insensitivity to Japanese-Americans is cited. Vets are stunned. By Donna Littlejohn DAILY BREEZE It was going to be a night to remember. Ushers dressed in World War II military uniforms, vintage cars pulling up to the curb, Pearl Harbor survivors and a recently restored 1940s military searchlight would be on hand Dec. 7 to greet the crowds at a special anniversary showing of “Tora! Tora! Tora!” at San Pedro’s historic Warner Grand Theatre. The 1970 film — a joint American and Japanese production — is considered one of the most accurate...

    CAMDEN, N.J. -- Harry K. Fukuhara spent half of 1942 in one of the internment camps where the United States government moved 110,000 Japanese-Americans after Japanese pilots bombed Pearl Harbor. He wanted out badly and got out, but only because he agreed to go to war defending the nation that had detained him because of his race. Fukuhara and thousands of other Japanese-American World War II veterans living and dead were honored Monday as defenders of the Constitution with the National Constitutional Center's "We the People" Award. About two dozen of the veterans, now in their 80s, attended the ceremony...
