    CLEMSON - A group of students is challenging Clemson University's use of free-speech areas, saying they infringe on the students' civil rights. Clemson Conservatives were censured by the university in connection with an Oct. 30 protest held outside the areas. The group held a protest Friday to get signatures for a petition opposing the university's policies. Clemson officials said they are working on revisions to the policy and hope to have them ready by Jan. 1 for review by students, faculty and staff. "No public university should have the right to restrict, limit, or abridge this fundamental right," said Andrew...

    Following complaints that it was racist, owners of a minor-league basketball team in Buffalo, N.Y. have changed the logo of their team, the Silverbacks, from a gorilla to some sort of panther-critter, according to the Buffalo News. Members of Buffalo's black community were said to be upset with the previous logo — a red-skinned gorilla dunking a basketball — because they said bigots sometimes use terms such as "monkey," "ape" and "gorilla" as racial slurs against blacks. [Snip -- next story] A local council in England has told staff that it may not use the term "political correctness" at work...

Since Mexico's top electoral court rejected Lopez Obrador's allegations of widespread fraud in the July 2 vote, he has focused on a Sept. 16 convention where supporters will declare him leader of a resistance government. The plan is to block President-elect Felipe Calderon at every step, including his...

     As the fifth anniversary of the attacks on 9/11 approaches, Americans are once again facing the horrors surrounding this event, and the ominous portent it conveyed. Yet, for some reason, one group of citizens has chosen to commemorate this solemn occasion by protesting an ABC miniseries documenting the history of this calamity.As amazing as it might seem, the top brass in the liberal blogosphere’s “Netroots” have been frantically writing the past couple of days about “The Path to 9/11,” declaring to their readers that this docudrama is “a piece of fiction,” and that ABC’s airing it represents “gross negligence.” At...

Leftist legislators yelling for a recount of votes surrounded the congressional podium on Friday, leaving President Vicente Fox, wearing his presidential sash, standing at the door of the chambers with no choice but to hand in his annual, written report and leave.

    Gabriel Range is a documentary filmmaker, of whom few had heard until this week. His 2003 television production, The Day Britain Stopped, was a pioneering essay in the “fake documentary”, in which imaginary future events are synthesized in fine detail. He has now achieved fame, even before anyone has seen his new essay in that genre, Death of a President. It will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival, Sept. 10th, and then show on the British TV channel, More4. The fame, or more properly, infamy, is for his audacity in making a film about the assassination of a U.S. President...

Supposedly, five Iraqi delegates heard about their hunger strike and invited them...

Lieberman by sponsoring a fund-raiser, campaigning by his side and lending him one of her top political strategists. That strategist, Howard Wolfson, said Mrs. Clinton wanted to throw her considerable political weight behind Mr. Lamont because the national Republican Party “is clearly invested in Ned Lamont’s defeat.” “I think they are going to do what they can to see him defeated,” Mr. Wolfson said, adding that he was particularly concerned with “Bush-Cheney...

    THE RESOLUTION UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED FRIDAY by the U.N. Security Council calling for a "full cessation of hostilities" in Lebanon comes too late for the more than 1,000 people killed in the last four weeks. But its adoption — with the expected consent of Israel and Lebanon — is still a major achievement. If implemented successfully, it not only would prevent further loss of innocent life, but would address what President Bush called the "root cause" of this unexpected and unexpectedly bloody conflict: Hezbollah's creation of its own state within Lebanon. Hezbollah, a Shiite movement nurtured by Iran, proved that it...

Drawing on the work of psychoanalytic anthropologist Weston LaBarre, he posits that the left has become a “crisis cult” such as are found in societies whose bedrock assumptions break down in the face of the superior strength of foreign cultures impinging on their territory. Probably the most famous of the crisis cults are the cargo cults which developed in Melanesia. The Cargo Cults believe that manufactured western goods (‘cargo’)...

    It's usually best in the American context to keep one's criticisms of Israel polite and measured, but there are times when it's better to be blunt in the hopes of achieving clarity.

As if required by law to demonstrate perfect balance, the talk shows always find a Republican and a Democrat to discuss the war.

But if trends continue, the winner will be far-left Ollanta Humala, followed by Peru's disastrous ex-president, Alan Garcia. The unpromising pair will face off for a final round in May. Hard to say which would be worse. Humala's a verified human-rights violator who tortured peasants as an army officer in the 1990s. He's also an admirer of dictators, like Peru's last one, Juan Velasco, remembered in the...

    Stephen Simon was a successful Hollywood producer whose resume includes hits like "Smokey and the Bandit," "The Electric Horseman" and "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure." But one day four years ago he had what he calls "a crisis of conscience." He decided that most of his movies, while paying the bills, weren't doing much for the good of humanity. So he packed his bags and moved to Ashland, Ore., where he now lives. After fleeing Hollywood, Simon founded the Spiritual Film Circle, a DVD-of-the-month club that promotes the kind of movies he wants to see more of, little-known productions that...

    from "Hannity & Colmes," ... SEAN HANNITY...from San Francisco tonight, the board of supervisors here overwhelmingly voted to reject a plan last year that would bring the historic World War II Iowa battleship right here to San Francisco harbor, as a museum and tourist center.

GERARDO SANDOVAL: That's right... it's a warship and it's got guns on it. It fires things. You know, you can't deny...

    The (People's) Daily Cardinal ^ | 2/3/2006 | Ben Broeren
    Offers of discounted Venezuelan diesel fuel from CITGO to the Chicago Transit Authority have sparked speculation on similar offers being made to Madison Metro. The offer to the CTA would have given a 40-percent discount in return for reduced fares for lower income groups. Ann Gullickson, transit service manager of Madison Metro, wrote in a memo to general manager Catherine Debo that if a similar offer were made to Madison, it could provide “in excess of $1 million.” She noted the CTA refused the offer because of incompatibility of diesel fuel standards. According to Gullickson, the CTA and Madison Metro...

    Democratic senators took the Bush administration to task Friday for four years of domestic spying, while the president fought back with a planned embrace of the intelligence agency that is carrying out the effort. In preparation for Senate hearings, Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts noted that President Bush asserted in 2004 that "when we're talking about chasing down terrorists, we're talking about getting a court order before we do so." That Bush statement came at the same time the National Security Agency was engaging - at the president's direction - in warrantless eavesdropping on Americans. "If President Bush can make his...

    Michael Moore Statement on Canadian Election Michael Moore is currently in production on his next movie. As an avid lover of all things Canadian, he has issued the following statement regarding Canada's upcoming election on Monday: Oh, Canada -- you're not really going to elect a Conservative majority on Monday, are you? That's a joke, right? I know you have a great sense of humor, and certainly a well-developed sense of irony, but this is no longer funny. Maybe it's a new form of Canadian irony -- reverse irony! OK, now I get it. First, you have the courage to...

    Over the course of the eight months of the D.C. Chapter's Friday night demonstrations in support of our troops recuperating at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, we've been fortunate to be able to able to speak with many soldiers and hear their thoughts about the war and those who protest against it. Recently, one soldier shared his stories with us of his experiences with those opposed to the war. To preserve his privacy from vindictive leftists, I'm leaving out details that might help them identify him. The soldier told us of returning to a stateside civilian airport last year in...

    Mar del Plata, Argentina, Nov 4 (EFE).- A Nobel laureate and a leftist Bolivian presidential candidate - but not, as had been promised, an Argentine soccer icon - led a march of thousands of anti-U.S. protesters through the streets of this seaside resort city Friday, hours before the inauguration of the Summit of the Americas. Retired athlete Diego Maradona, who had vowed to lead the demonstration to "repudiate" the presence of U.S. President George W. Bush, was in town but did not join the vanguard of the marchers. The explanation provided was that the former captain of the national soccer...
