    FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. - The image on the brown T-shirt is simple, a colorful outline of the Southwest's craggy hills. The message under the picture — "New Mexico, Cleaner than Regular Mexico" — has galvanized thousands of Latinos, who are taking their protests from the streets to cyberspace. "I was born in Mexico, so when people make comments about Mexico I take it personally," said Carime Hernandez, 24, of West Palm Beach, Fla. Hernandez took action. She logged on to and fired off an e-mail message demanding the chairman of Urban Outfitters, the retail chain that sells the tops,...

    One Clinton jets to Alaska and Iraq with Republicans, and enthusiastically sponsors legislation with GOP lawmakers who impeached her husband. The other plays golf with former President George Bush and accepts assignments from the current one. All of this bipartisan snuggling by Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and former President Bill Clinton has some Democrats and Republicans questioning their motives. Is this calculated politics designed to get the former first lady ready for a presidential bid in 2008?

    LONDON (AFP) - The British army joined in a gay pride march for the first time, an army spokesman said. Troops in uniform joined the annual Gay Pride festival in Manchester, northern England, on the march through the city centre, with thousands of supporters watching from the sidelines. The army was out to attract homosexual recruits and show it can be gay-friendly. Soldiers gave out sweets as their float travelled along the two-mile (three-kilometre) course, following a float of muscular men in pink Lycra shorts dancing to music and blowing whistles. "We don't really care what sexual orientation you are...

    A front-page story concerning Iran in Tuesday’s Washington Post was clearly intended to thwart American efforts preventing that country from obtaining nuclear weapons, as well as to embarrass the Bush administration with more implications of faulty intelligence. In an article entitled “No Proof Found of Iran Arms Program”, Dafna Linzer states: Traces of bomb-grade uranium found two years ago in Iran came from contaminated Pakistani equipment and are not evidence of a clandestine nuclear weapons program, a group of U.S. government experts and other international scientists has determined. "The biggest smoking gun that everyone was waving is now eliminated with...

    Washington ( - The Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., the current home of hundreds of wounded veterans from the war in Iraq, has been the target of weekly anti-war demonstrations since March. The protesters hold signs that read "Maimed for Lies" and "Enlist here and die for Halliburton." The anti-war demonstrators, who obtain their protest permits from the Washington, D.C., police department, position themselves directly in front of the main entrance to the Army Medical Center, which is located in northwest D.C., about five miles from the White House. Among the props used by the protesters are...

    Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer said the small intelligence unit, called "Able Danger," had identified Atta and three of the other future Sept. 11 hijackers as al-Qaida members by mid-2000. He said military lawyers stopped the unit from sharing the information with the FBI. The commission investigating the Sept. 11 attacks left the Able Danger claims out of its official report. In an interview with Fox News Channel and The New York Times, Shaffer said the panel was not given all the information his team had gathered. "I'm told confidently by the person who did move the material over that the...

Debbie Argel Bastian, who last week watched as Capt. Derek Argel's remains were buried along with four of his comrades at Arlington National Cemetery, says the other memorials are an insult to her son's memory.

    A Chattanooga lobbyist has pleaded guilty on federal bribery charges saying he delivered kickbacks to two lawmakers. Charles Love is one of two lobbyists accused of delivering bribes from undercover agents to Senator Ward Crutchfield and Rep. Chris Newton in a sting coined "Tennessee Waltz". Both lawmakers are being charged with bribery and extortion. Prosecutors say Love took money to lawmakers on behalf of E-cycle, which was a fake company the F-B-I set up. Love is the second defendant to plead guilty in the case. Barry Myers told a judge he passed FBI bribes to Sen. Kathryn Bowers and Former...

    On MSNBC'S Countdown, tonight, Cindy Sheehan pretty much confirmed the view that she was only staging her Crawford act for a publicity stunt. It would be of no shock to anyone that the liberal host of Countdown floated the idea to Ms.Sheehan that, if her intention was to protest the war and President Bush, then it would be better if she and the President did not meet. Obviously, what the liberal host had in mind was the idea of keeping the story alive. And it was at that point, that Cindy Sheehan showed her real intentions. She agreed, indicating that...

And like a soldier he died, killed in April of 2004, in Sadr City, Iraq. Casey's mom, Cindy, doesn't quite get it. She is a mother who has lost her son to a war. Convinced she knows more about the costs of war than other parents who've suffered similar loss, she has parked herself outside President Bush's ranch in Crawford, Texas.

    Jacksonville, Fla.--- This morning, PETA sent an urgent letter to Jacksonville City Council President Kevin Hyde and his fellow councilors, urging them to follow the lead of more than 70 other jurisdictions across the country—including Orange County, Hollywood, and Dania Beach, Fla.—and ban or restrict the chaining of dogs. The appeal follows the reported August 3 discovery of two malnourished dogs abandoned in Jacksonville whose chains had become embedded in their flesh. Chained dogs are forced to endure weather extremes and spend their entire lives eating, sleeping, and eliminating in the same few square feet of space. Chained dogs are...

How dare you," roared Philip Goldson, 43, of New Haven at the protest organizers at Church and Chapel streets. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, a national animal rights group, posted giant photographs of people, mostly black Americans, being tortured, sold and killed, next to photographs of animals, including cattle and sheep, being tortured, sold and killed.

    This week's vicious attack on Judge John Roberts by the abortion lobby was not really a desperate effort to defeat him against overwhelming odds. Rather, it is part of an intricate game that not only determines the occupant of one seat on the Supreme Court but can set its ideological course for the next generation. The current hard count for Roberts is 60 senators. That would be more than enough to confirm him and barely enough to end a filibuster. But it is not enough to further the grand strategy for a conservative court. At least 70 votes for confirmation...

He is director of reserve operations at the National Security Space Institute in Colorado Springs, in charge of more than 40 full-time and traditional reservists. In the arrest affidavit, Denver police say Fecteau admitted to damaging several cars after police conducted a sting-operation to catch the anti-Bush vandal.

    Overwhelmingly, pro-lifers condemn violence against abortionists and their co-workers. However, it doesn't appear that feeling is mutual at Planned Parenthood Golden Gate (PPGG), who have posted an animated video that displays gross acts of brutality against those who wish to advance the messages of life and abstinence. In addition to its violence, the video also extends its own degree of tastelessness and disrespect. [Note: Due to some unfavorable attention, the video was removed from PPGG's site this afternoon (Tue. Aug. 9, 2005).] In the span of a few minutes, the Planned Parenthood video displays the following: ... A female "superhero...

    On Sunday, President Bush addressed a Jamboree of more than 30,000 Boy Scouts in Virginia. He stated, "through the generations, scouts have made America a stronger and better nation." Those critical of the Boy Scouts of America argue that the Boy Scouts' exclusion of gays, atheists and females makes America more divided and divisive. One side wishes to strengthen the Boy Scouts; the other wishes to destroy the Boy Scouts by forcing politically correct changes upon it. Over the past two decades, the Boy Scouts has been both a flash point and the ground of sustained struggle between traditional and...

    The American Center For Voting Rights Legislative Fund (“ACVR Legislative Fund”) today released the most comprehensive and authoritative review of the facts surrounding allegations of vote fraud, intimidation and suppression made during the 2004 presidential election. The ACVR Legislative Fund report, “Vote Fraud, Intimidation & Suppression In The 2004 Presidential Election,” finds that while Democrats routinely accuse Republicans of voter intimidation and suppression, neither party has a clean record on the issue. The report finds that paid Democrat operatives were far more involved in voter intimidation and suppression activities than were their Republican counterparts during the 2004 presidential election.

    (AgapePress) - A Masschusetts pro-family group is blasting the state legislature for overriding the governor's veto of a 70 percent increase in state funding for homosexual programs in public schools. Last month, Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney vetoed a $175,000 funding increase for Gay Straight Alliance clubs and school assemblies promoting same-sex "marriage." However, the state legislature, led by House Ways and Means chairman Robert DeLeo, voted to override Romney. Brian Camenker, who heads the Waltham-based group Article 8 Alliance, recalls DeLeo's influence in the matter. "The chief of staff of this guy [DeLeo] had a phone conversation with me [during...

    Two recent publications circulating at the United Nations demonstrate a growing focus on young people as a way of advancing the abortion agenda. The reports, one by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and another by a radical lobby group, both call for a greater focus on the "sexual and reproductive" rights of youth, a term that UN agencies frequently misinterpret as including abortion. Youth are defined in the UNFPA report as "aged 10 to 24 years." UNFPA's report, entitled "The Case for Investing in Young People as part of a National Poverty Reduction Strategy," states that "UNFPA's mandate [is]...

It is a story we mentioned in a recent Media Monitor, but much more has come to light. In one sense, it is another validation for the New Media, specifically the blogs; and for another, it shines a light on problems related to diversity in the newsrooms, when diversity strictly refers to skin color. It also spells potential big trouble for the Sacramento Bee editor, Rick Rodriguez, the new president of the American Society of Newspaper Editors (ASNE)....

    American women should be outraged. Not because of their supposed oppression over the years, but because American women have been starved of one of the greatest values available to them while living life on earth: masculine men. Before the malicious feminist revolution, women could enjoy not just men but masculine men. Popular actors included the masculine Paul Newman, the gentlemanly Clark Gable, the cool and confident Sean Connery. Women could line up military bases to watch their favorite men in uniform. Up until just before the women's liberation movement, women used to faint after seeing their favorite men in concert....

    SAN FRANCISCO — Anti-war activists submitted a ballot measure Monday that would put the city on record as opposing the presence of military recruiters in public high schools and colleges. The nonbinding "College Not Combat" resolution acknowledges that a ban would put schools at risk of losing federal funding. If the measure qualifies for the November ballot and is approved by voters, it would encourage city officials and university administrators to exclude recruiters — even if it means forsaking government dollars — and to create scholarships and training to reduce the military's appeal to youth.

    CHICAGO — A federal judge has ruled the Pentagon can no longer spend millions in government money to ready a Virginia military base for a national Boy Scout event typically held every four years, the American Civil Liberties Union announced Thursday. U.S. District Judge Blanche Manning's June 22 order stems from a 1999 lawsuit by the ACLU of Illinois that claimed the Defense Department sponsorship violates the First Amendment because the Scouts require members to swear an oath of duty to God. Justice Department spokesman Charles Miller said Thursday the government was still considering its options. The order doesn't cover...

    For many years, the military has been doing research into non-lethal weapons, mostly for crowd control and hostage situations. Liberals have often encouraged this research, as a means of restraining the use of firearms or other deadly force. Two private citizens in the 1990s started a company called Taser, which produces a gun-shaped device that shoots out two wires and a projectile that cause a strong stun sensation in a person, incapacitating him momentarily as an alternative to using a gun. In police training, the police officers themselves get shot by a Taser. After years of sincere effort - by...

    The Disturbing Link Between PETA and Domestic Terrorism By William John Hagan Houston Home Journal 06/29/2005 This week the organization People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) came up on the national radar screen. Two PETA employees, one named Adria Joy Hinkle, were arrested for disposing of dead animals in a shopping center's dumpster. The animals had been killed by PETA, which was astonishing given their incessant rhetoric about being the guardians of America’s pets. Police discovered 18 dead animals in the dumpster and 13 more in a PETA-owned van. It turns out that, unbeknownst to most Americans and...

    The Washington Liberals and terrorismBy Peter HuessyPublished June 28, 2005 The liberal press and its political allies are upset with Karl Rove. The president's key adviser said recently that liberals responded to the terrorist attacks of September 11 with calls for two things: Better understanding of why these enemies attacked us, and calling the police with indictments in hand to apprehend the terrorists and their terror masters.     Was Mr. Rove out of line? Remarkably, he probably understated the case. On Nov. 10, 1998, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright was asked what we should do about the declaration...

    "A solemn undertaking" by the Allies Monday June 30, 1919The Guardian The formal end of the world-war was reached at twelve minutes pat three on Saturday afternoon, when the German delegates signed the Peace Treaty in the splendid Hall of Mirrors, where the German Empire was proclaimed. The German delegates, led by Herr Hermann Muller, the Foreign Minister, signed first on the invitation of M. Clemenceau, and were followed by the representatives of 26 Allied and Associated nations in alphabetical order. The Chinese alone among the belligerent Powers withheld their signature from the treaty. Their request that the question of...

    FORT KNOX, Ky. (AP) - The recruits of Echo Company stumbled off the bus for basic training at Fort Knox to the screams of red-faced drill instructors. That much was expected. But it got worse from there. Echo Company's top drill instructor seized a recruit by the back of the neck and threw him to the ground. Other soldiers were poked, grabbed or cursed. Once inside the barracks, Pvt. Jason Steenberger says, he was struck in the chest by the top D.I. and kicked ``like a football.'' Andrew Soper, who has since left the Army, says he was slapped and...

Despite the lack of evidence that any of their goofy gun control laws have ever stopped a single murder, and despite their already having banned scary “assault weapons,” allegedly unsafe “Saturday night specials,” and the imaginary menace of “50 caliber sniper rifles,” they have dug deeper this year to...

    VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - A radical environmentalist who is one of the FBI's most wanted fugitives told an extradition hearing Monday he was being unfairly targeted by the U.S. government and should be allowed to remain in Canada. Tre Arrow, born Michael Scarpitti, is accused of taking part in the 2001 firebombings of logging and cement trucks in Oregon. The FBI also claims he is associated with the Earth Liberation Front, a group that has claimed responsibility for dozens of acts of destruction over the past few years. "I am being targeted by the U.S. government and the FBI,...

    Women's Combat Role on Front Burner June 27, 2005 Washington - With more than 200,000 women serving in the U.S. military, Americans have long been accustomed to seeing them marching in combat boots right alongside men. But none of that prepared the nation for the grim news that at least four female American troops were killed and 11 others wounded in Iraq late Thursday when a suicide bomber struck a Marine convoy near the insurgent stronghold of Fallujah. The bloodiest attack against American women in more than two years of war in Iraq, the incident highlighted the debate over women...

    A few years ago, the National Constitution Center surveyed teenagers and found that while only about four in 10 could name the three branches of the federal government fully six in 10 could name all Three Stooges. Everyone agrees we aren't teaching history well, but the direction of reform is controversial. Philadelphia's public schools have just announced they will mandate that all students take an African-American history course in order to graduate from high school. The theory is that the city's 185,000 public school students, two-thirds of whom are black, will finally become aware of their culture and gain self-esteem....

Mike Adams | June 27, 2005 For years, I have argued that anti-religious bigotry is a serious problem in higher education.

    TROUBLE SPEAK Ward Churchill backs fragging Controversial '9-11 prof' suggests rolling grenades under line officers Posted: June 26, 2005 10:39 p.m. Eastern © 2005 Prof. Ward Churchill University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill suggested to a forum on conscientious objection they might be more effective in opposing war if they supported the "fragging" or killing of line officers. In a Portland meeting on resistance to military recruiting, Churchill, famous for comparing Sept. 11, 2001, victims in the World Trade Center to "little Eichmanns," twice suggested anti-war activists should support those who kill their officers. "For those of you who...
