    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...

    To parents concerned about public education leftist bias: here is the exact content of an email I just sent to my kid's freshman History teacher. I welcome any comments in case I receive a backlash from the principal, to whom I cc'ed in on the message, and possibly the teacher himself:Hello Mr. ____: I am ____ ____'s mom. He shared some things from your class presentation today that concerned his father and me. He said you stated, upon displaying an image on the overhead projector of a person crying, that the man was reacting to the assasination of a Kennedy...

    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...

    Mom of fallen airman calls cross memorials insulting The mother of a Lompoc Air Force officer killed in Iraq is demanding that crosses bearing her son's name be removed from Santa Barbara's Arlington West memorial and from an impromptu display outside President Bush's Texas ranch, where the mother of another fallen soldier sits in vigil. 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. "They have erected crosses out there, and Derek is out...

    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...
  • Cindy Sheehan Indicates to MSNBC That She Would Rather the President Not Meet With Her.

    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...

    Casey Sheehan was a re-enlistee with the Army's 1st Cavalry. He knew he was going to fight. He understood that. He embraced it. He fought like a soldier. 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. Full of judgment and hate, calling him "selected," not elected, blaming...

    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...

    NEW HAVEN — A two-hour animal rights demonstration on the Green Monday sparked outrage instead of sympathy from the public. "This is the most racist thing I’ve ever seen on the Green. 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...

    Police say he's responsible for thousands of dollars in damage on at least 12 cars. Lt. Colonel Alexis Fecteau, 42, of Colorado Springs, turned himself in to Denver police Friday. 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. "It was pretty good police work," said Denver Police spokesman Sonny Jackson. He said his department took this case very seriously. "You...
  • Media is Silent on Violent Planned Parenthood Video

    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...

    Hello ladies. I am writing to initiate negotiations for a legal settlement that I think will be in the best interests of ASU feminists. When I saw your website, I felt immediately sexually harassed as I read the following quotes: "A woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle." - Gloria Steinem "Whatever women do they must do twice as well as men to be thought half as good. Luckily, this is not difficult." - Charlotte Whitton "Sure God created man before woman. But then you always make a rough draft before the final masterpiece." - Anonymous

    Cindy Sheehan (snip) said yesterday on CNN that a private meeting with President Bush last year was offensive, insisting, "He acted like it was a party ... he came in very jovial, like we should be happy that ... our son died for [the President's] misguided policies."But just after that 2004 meeting, she gave a very different account, (snip) "I now know [the president is] sincere about wanting freedom for the Iraqis. I know he's sorry and feels some pain for our loss. And I know he's a man of faith." (snip)
