    More than 200 colleges and high schools across the nation participated in Young America's Foundation's 9/11: Never Forget Project. Students came together to establish an American flag memorial on campus consisting of 2,977 flags representing each person murdered in the terrorist attacks. Unfortunately, five student protesters at Middlebury College ripped the flags out of the ground before 3:00 pm. The 9/11: Never Forget Project has been an annual nonpartisan event at Middlebury College for the past ten years. By participating in the 9/11: Never Forget Project, students honor the victims of the attacks, as well as honor the American principles...

    Federal Bench: Yet another judicial nominee seeks to impose the "empathy" standard on the courts. He thinks judges should base rulings on a plaintiff's status, legislate from the bench and amend the Constitution. Indiana federal judge David Hamilton stands poised to be confirmed by the U.S. Senate to assume a seat on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals serving Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin. He's a former fundraiser for Acorn and a former leader of the Indiana chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union. He is also another in a series of activist judges who believe the U.S. Constitution is not...

    -- Vote could come as early as MondayHe has been called "extreme" by some. But to others, he's beyond extreme... he's a "Radical's Radical."  Whatever he is, he could become President Obama's next choice for the federal judiciary. This radical is Judge David Hamilton, and he's been nominated for a position on the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. Hamilton has made many political enemies on the right, seeing that his politics are to the far left of the political spectrum.  Oh yes, judges aren't supposed to be political, but this one has engaged in quite a bit of leftist activism....

    In August 2006, just a few months in advance of the midterm elections, 26 million citizens were logging on to the Internet to get information about the campaigns, according to a survey by the Pew Internet and American Life Project. ) That amounts to 13 percent of all adults in the country using the Internet as a tool to make informed political decisions.... And notably, since the inception of Google bombing seven years ago, political Google bombs have been predominantly a tactic of the Left.

The Dirty Dozen highlights the most bizarre and troubling instances of leftist activism supplanting traditional scholarship in our nation’s colleges and universities. The growth of these courses gobbles up tons of money and resources and ignores scholarship from conservatives. For instance, books and speeches from the...

    The parish nurse began to unravel the unusual pattern one Sunday in June when she went on the Internet and entered the title of that day's scheduled sermon at National City Christian Church. The Rev. Alvin O'Neal Jackson, a charismatic preacher and leader of the denomination, had chosen his subject and titled it "Sorry Mr. President, I Don't Dance." But the search engine Google revealed that a sermon with the same title had been delivered months earlier by the Rev. Thomas K. Tewell, pastor of Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church in New York City. The nurse, Kathy McGregor, then went to...

    Shamnesty International By William A. Mayer Last year on October 29, Irene Khan, Secretary General [why do these people insist on titles which sound like they were coined by Joseph Stalin?] of Amnesty International, made a speech regarding human rights violations. The location – Moscow. Just a few days previous, a squad of 50 Chechen Islamic terrorists took over a Moscow theater, holding 700 civilians hostage and eventually killing at least 90 of them before Russian Special Forces ended the siege. Yet in Ms. Khan’s 1,200 word declaration, precious little space was devoted to the theater atrocity – lip...
