    Dear Fellow Conservative, I'm working to retire John Kerry from the Senate and the national Democrats know I can succeed. Kerry's liberal friends in Washington will stop at nothing to keep him in the Senate. But I know I can beat him in November and bring change to Washington and I need your help to do it. The Democrats are scared of my candidacy. Last year I came extremely close to winning a special Congressional election; despite being outspent five to one in a Democrat-leaning district. The national Democrats poured millions of dollars into the Congressional race to defend what...

    SAN FRANCISCO, Nov 29 (OneWorld) - U.S. war veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan have announced they're planning to descend on Washington, DC this March to testify about war crimes they committed or personally witnessed in Iraq. "The war in Iraq is not covered to its potential because of how dangerous it is for reporters to cover it," said Liam Madden, a former Marine and member of the group Iraq Veterans Against the War. "That's left a lot of misconceptions in the minds of the American public about what the true nature of military occupation looks like." Iraq Veterans Against the...

    Here’s a burning question no one is asking: Whither John F. Kerry? He is his party’s most recent presidential nominee. He came tantalizingly close to winning. And yet no one is looking for him to put his stamp on the 2008 Democratic primary or wondering aloud who he’ll endorse — even though Al Gore campaign manager Donna Brazile says that in the early-state contests, “most of the voters would be thrilled to know who Kerry would back and why.” But the lack of an audible clamor for an endorsement by Kerry is more than a bit deceiving, as is the...

    Dashed White House ambitions, John Kerry has learned, can be humbling. The Massachusetts Democrat is the first failed presidential nominee since George McGovern in 1972 to return to his day job in the Senate, surrounded by White House wannabes. Kerry insists it hasn't bothered him to watch from the sidelines as current and former colleagues - including his 2004 running mate, John Edwards - gallop past in pursuit of the Democratic presidential nomination that was his four years ago. "Life goes on and people get too fixated on those kinds of things," Kerry, 63, told The Associated Press in an...

    Senator John F. Kerry blasted the leading Republican presidential candidates on foreign policy yesterday, saying "it should disturb all of us" that the GOP contenders are taking increasingly hawkish stances on national security issues like Iran and the Guantanamo Bay detention center. In a speech at Johns Hopkins University's School of Advanced International Studies, Kerry delivered a stinging commentary on what he described as the belligerent tone of recent Republican primary debates. "Most of the Republican candidates seemed almost eager to use nuclear weapons preemptively" against Iran, Kerry said. Several GOP candidates said at a debate last week in Manchester,...

    Former Sen. John Edwards campaign announced that he will skip the Nevada Democratic Party's planned August presidential debate, the latest fallout from the party's decision to have the Fox Network host the event. The move sparked an outcry, particularly among liberals and activist bloggers, who accused Fox of being too sympathetic to Republicans and demanded that the Democratic candidates boycott the forum. MoveOn.org, one of the nation's leading progressive organizations, gathered more than 250,000 signatures asking the Nevada Democratic Party to drop Fox as a debate sponsor. The group also created a web site -- www.foxattacks.com -- to highlight the...

    Just as baseball fans tend to be hooked on statistics -- and the more arcane the better -- political aficionados often look to historical precedents and analogous situations for clues of future events, whether truly applicable or not. All in all, it's not a bad thing, as long as one does not become a prisoner of history. But this presidential campaign might be so different that many past patterns will not apply or might be terribly misleading. Over the last 90 years, only two sitting U.S. senators have won the presidency -- Warren G. Harding in 1920 and John F....

    The World Economic Forum in Davos is a sanctuary for America-bashers. John Kerry was the star there yesterday. In case you missed it, Allah's got video and the lowdown. All I can say is: Thank God for the Swift Boat Veterans. Davos is getting feedback. LGF'ers are leading the charge. Matt at Blackfive notes that while Kerry schmoozed former Iranian President Mohammad Khatami, evidence of Iranian special ops orchestration of the horrific attack on US troops in Kerbala is building.
  • Al Qaeda Sends a Message to Democrats

    Brian Ross and Hoda Osman Report: Al Qaeda has sent a message to leaders of the Democratic party that credit for the defeat of congressional Republicans belongs to the terrorists. In a portion of the tape from al Qaeda No. 2 man, Ayman al Zawahri, made available only today, Zawahri says he has two messages for American Democrats. "The first is that you aren't the ones who won the midterm elections, nor are the Republicans the ones who lost. Rather, the Mujahideen -- the Muslim Ummah's vanguard in Afghanistan and Iraq -- are the ones who won, and the American...
