    James J. Kilpatrick, 89, a fiery advocate of racial segregation as a Richmond newspaper editor in the 1950s who became a sparring partner of liberals on the television show "60 Minutes" and a syndicated columnist who offered conservative views on subjects ranging from politics to proper use of the English language, died Sunday in Washington. Mr. Kilpatrick, who gradually distanced himself from his writings on race, became one of the most popular and eminent conservative writers of his generation. His prose style blended the erudite and the homespun, and he became one of the few conservatives syndicated in print nationally...

      Rep. Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick (D-MI) was defeated in a Democratic primary yesterday. Kilpatrick was one of six members of Congress investigated by the Office of Congressional Ethics and the House Ethics Committee for accepting a corporate-sponsored Caribbean junket in November 2008. I attended the event in St. Maarten before organizers had me detained by the Police Korps of St. Maarten. The investigations were launched on the basis of my photographs, audio recordings and other evidence of sponsorship by companies like Citigroup. The Ethics Committee admonished Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY), leading him to resign his post as Chairman of...

    Keith Ellison, widely hailed as America's first Muslim congressman, could more accurately be described as CAIR and Hamas' man in Congress. Congressman Ellison has been a regular presence at CAIR fundraisers and at pro-Hamas rallies in the United States. As a former member of Farrakhan's Nation of Islam , Ellison has enough anti-semitic and Islamist credentials to satisfy anyone, and had expressed openly anti-semitic beliefs in the past. Since Ellison got his start with CAIR , his attempt to provide support for Hamas is completely unsurprising. Both Hamas and CAIR are projects of the Muslim Brotherhood, which also helped...

    Wayne County Prosecutors say Kilpatrick is living large on what he should be paying to the city of Detroit in restitution. He spent $595 at a Gucci store and $158 at a nail salon this past June, Assistant Wayne County Prosecutor Athina Siringas said. Siringas also said $800 was spent at one point over the summer on Omaha steaks. Other transaction were made for golf and smooties, and one at a shop called "Nothing Bundt Cakes.'' "That's what you chose to spend the money on?'' Siringas asked Kilpatrick, who invoked his Fifth Amendment privilege several times during Monday's hearing.
