  • You Call This A Rally? (One Nation,Liberal Left Rally,Glen Beck’s Restoring Honor Rally Larger

    You call this liberal left gathering in Washington D.C. yesterday a rally? PLEASE. Yesterday’s “One Nation Rally”, which had been organized to help beleaguered Democrats who are getting ready for the upcoming November 2, 2010 mid-term elections, with the support of both unions and civil rights groups, had a gathering alright. But not the large numbers that was generated from the recent late August 2010 Glen Beck “Restoring Honor Rally” and the two major tea party rallies that met both in September of 2009 and 2010.

    Apparently out of a sense of loyalty to the man who plucked her from Alaska and put her in the national spotlight, McCain’s former VP running mate Sarah Palin has been campaigning in his behalf. (We grimace at this, but we can appreciate the loyalty…..maybe) In light of the revelations below, we hope she will reconsider. New Republican Senator from Massachusetts, Scott Brown, has also shown up in Arizona in McCain’s behalf, again out of loyalty for McCain’s support when Brown was still in “obscurity.” _______________________________________________ J.D. Hayworth is the true conservative opposing John McCain in the Arizona GOP primary...

    Have evangelicals abandoned the Religious Right for a more moderate center? Some say yes. ... Mr. McLaren says global poverty, destruction of the environment and increasing violence in the world must be addressed and calls for the church to "change its framing story" and to start trying to change public opinion in these areas.

    In human society, there are many elements of behavior and philosophy that contrast with one another. In this essay, the subject is an element I refer to as "faith in the future". That is not to say specifically faith in God, or faith in a philosophy, but faith in general. In this context, faith can be defined as a belief that there is something bigger, more important in the world than one's self, and that the future is something we should strive to make better. A lack of faith, therefore, is a belief that one is powerless and that things...

    The U.S. government has zero investment in retaining Paul Wolfowitz as president of the World Bank, but millions of poor people rely on the economic health and credibility of the institution. Wolfowitz is an impediment, a liability, who ought to be sacked if he is too dense and proud to quickly step aside. He is in trouble because he lied about getting his girlfriend a promotion and pay raises after she left the World Bank for a job at the State Department when he became president of the international lending organization. Over the weekend, the board of the 185-member World...

    Nikita Khrushchev remarked to the New York Times on Sept. 29, 1957 that "The press is our chief ideological weapon." So it came as no surprise when North Vietnam's leader Ho Chi Minh echoed Mao Tse-tung's truism that by using the "media and elitist peace activists, an enemy of America could convince the American people" that they couldn't win a war. The trick was not to defeat the military - they knew they couldn't - but rather to use the media and activists to break the will of the American people. And the beat goes on. Pulitzer Prize winning liberal...

    The events of September 11, 2001, were unique in American history, public tragedies so overwhelming that they altered not just the politics of the nation, but its entire cultural consciousness. Nearly five years later, the political consequences of that day are apparent, if far from resolved. The cultural effects, however, are just beginning to take shape. From a host of mediocre novels to TV shows like 24 and The Sopranos, the lingering effects of that day have brushed up against our popular culture. But until recently, the day itself remained sacrosanct, as artists and critics have struggled with how one...

    When Howard Stern begins his satellite radio career on January 9th, he may learn that he hasn't escaped the censors. Where terrestrial radio is sometimes disciplined by the FCC, satellite radio is governed by something far more malignant: The Orthodox Liberal-Left. At least, that was my experience with XM--the number one satellite radio service and rival to Stern's Sirius. I was aggressively sought by XM to do a show. But XM's left-wing programming officials' idea of what my views should be were far more restrictive than a governmental body properly trying to enforce decency in extreme cases. At XM, they...

    If it weren't literally a matter of life and death, it would be amusing. It literally came to a head when Pennsylvania Democrat John Murtha took to the floor of the House and told lawmakers (and the world) that US forces have done 'all that they could do' in the war against the Iraq insurgency and that it is time to withdraw the troops immediately. According to Murtha, US troops are the 'prime target' of the insurgency. He told lawmakers that he believed military officials when he visited Kuwait just before the war and they showed him where American forces...

    Though certainly not a surprise, it became official last Saturday: Former presidential candidate Howard Dean is now the chairman of the Democratic National Committee. Consequently, there were a lot more Republicans than usual in church pews the next day, thanking God for answering their prayers. After all, the conventional wisdom is that Mr. Scream is the gift that keeps on giving; his positions are consistently so far to the left that he can't possibly assist the Democratic Party in garnering enough moderate independent votes to be able to win back the Congress in 2006, or the White House in 2008....

    In the wake of the release of a preliminary report by the Paul-Volcker-led team "investigating" the relatively unimportant — to judge by the mainstream media coverage afforded it — "irregularities" in the United Nations Oil-for-Food program, it will be instructive to review the roles of some of the pivotal players in the above-referenced $US 20 billion ripoff. (Eastman Kodak Company, by comparison, earned about 2/3 that amount — $US 13.4 billion — in fiscal 2004.) What jumps out here is not only the enormity, as measured by its sheer dollar-volume, of a story I hope will be at some point...

    As a Bush re-election later this year looks increasingly likely, some left-wingers worry that Howard Dean is too risky a candidate to put up against a popular President. There is, of course, the obvious comparison to McGovern and the fear that a true believer may inevitably be a sure loser. There is also the worry that Dean may not in fact be so true a believer in the first place: he did support Newt Gingrich's Medicare reforms, after all, and has been a little too cozy with gun rights advocates; might he not betray the Left in order to appeal...

    With Alger Hiss dead and Gloria Steinem married, liberals were in desperate need of an "intellectual." Woody Allen was a possibility, as were Carter and Clinton, but they were all too cliché. The Left needed someone relatively unknown to the masses -- public opinion isn't good for liberals -- and someone who knew lots and lots of words. (The definitions were essentially irrelevant, but pronunciation was key.) They settled, at long last, on someone just as good as any Soviet apparatchik they could have ever found: Susan Sontag. Recently deceased at the age of 71, Sontag was to liberal elitists...

    Gay Marriage Opponents File Suit in S.F. 29 minutes ago By LISA LEFF, Associated Press Writer SAN FRANCISCO - Opponents of gay marriage went to court Friday to stop an extraordinary act of ongoing civil disobedience in which San Francisco has issued more than 150 marriage licenses to gay couples. Weddings appeared likely to continue through the long holiday weekend despite efforts by the Campaign for California Families and the Alliance Defense Fund to obtain a temporary restraining order that would prevent the city from granting more licenses. A Superior Court hearing was scheduled Friday afternoon. Around the country, gays...

    With his statements regarding the issue of gay marriage, President Bush has missed a golden opportunity to rid the political forum of some of the issues that seem to bog down the conservative movement, especially the Republican Party, during elections. The issue of gay marriage and whether or not homosexuals should be in the clergy are not issues of a political nature although the liberal-left would like them to be. They are moral issues that are questions for individuals meant to be made on an individual basis. If he would have greeted the gay marriage issue from this unique and...

It seems people like you and I have a lot on our minds these days.

    While the news media keeps everyone fixated on the probability of war in Iraq, the ever-benign stock market and the desperate need for duct tape and pre-measured sheets of plastic, I find it necessary to sound the alarm by reminding all of us who are fighting the good fight that THEY are re-grouping. They are dancing in clandestine glee as they prepare for their next strike while we, the responsibility burdened, focus on and do what needs to be done for the good of our nation. They live in the shadows and are hard to identify because they choose not...
