    America's annual door into summer, Memorial Day, is found at picnics and cemeteries. Spring's brief flowers dance in the same soft breezes that move the Memorial Day flags so many families have planted at the graves of those they love. Families grow stronger, nourished by sensations sweeter and more sour than hotdog relish. This sacred secular holiday, like the drinking glass ritually broken under foot at Jewish weddings, reminds us that joy and sorrow are seasons that come and go and come again in every human life. In Europe, the red poppies are in bloom once again, as they were...

    Growing up on Southern California’s fault line, I learned to love the tremors that as elementary school children we felt every week. Earthquakes were terrifying and destructive, but each quake also carried an important lesson — the material possessions we traded life’s precious hours for and looked to as a security blanket could be destroyed at any instant. As I write this under a blood red rising moon, smelling acrid smoke with every breath, I’ve begun to ponder the lessons to be learned from living on this fire line that by one estimate this week turned 900,000 Californians into evacuees....

    Earlier this month in a Washington Post Op-Ed article Jimmy Carter blamed the current violence in Lebanon and Gaza on Israel, which had purportedly violated “key U.N. resolutions…by occupying Arab lands and oppressing Palestinians.” He got through an entire article without ever mentioning that Lebanon had failed to comply with the 2004 United Nations Security Council Resolution 1559, which called on Lebanon to disarm the terrorist group Hezbollah whose members now sit in its legislature and cabinet. Last February 20 in another Washington Post piece Mr. Carter attacked Israel for withholding tax revenues from the new Palestinian Authority government following...

While the U.S. Constitution enshrines the right to religious freedom and the prohibition against a state religion, when it comes to the rights of religious enclaves to impose communal rules, the dividing line is more nebulous. Can U.S. enclaves, homeowner associations, and other groups enforce Islamic law? Such questions are no longer theoretical. While Muslim organizations first established enclaves in Europe,[1]...

    Katie Couric’s politics "are apparently even further to the Left and more partisan Democratic than Dan Rather’s,” commentator Lowell Ponte writes. "For this reason, she is unlikely to restore CBS’s credibility or redeem CBS’s well-deserved reputation for left-wing bias.” If Couric’s previous work is any indication, she could bring to CBS not only her liberal bias but also her penchant for making potentially inflammatory comments. In November 1997, Couric asked a jilted bride on "Today”: "Have you considered castration as an option?” Critics noted that if any male interviewer had even jokingly proposed sexually mutilating a woman, he would have...

    Europe's botched civilization, perverted by socialism and lost faith, seems to have lost the will, the passion to sustain itself. If it continues to practice today's multiculturalist leftism, Europe's demographic doom will be sealed. Some harbingers: In Brussels, Belgium, the most popular name for baby boys is now Mohammad. Sustaining the population of a nation requires that on average each couple gives birth to 2.1 children. The average European couple now has fewer than 1.4 babies, compared to 3.6 babies born to the average Muslim immigrant couple in Europe. Across Western Europe 16 to 20 percent of babies are being...

    Michael Moore and his agitprop film "Fahrenheit 9/11" were nowhere to be found on the lists of Academy Awards nominees released last week. And despite his commercial success, the Writers Guild omitted Moore from consideration for its first list of documentary writing award nominees. The only award Moore received was from a gun rights group highlighting his hypocrisy after a bodyguard for this maker of the 2003 Academy Award-winning anti-gun "Bowling for Columbine" got arrested in New York City for carrying a handgun not licensed there. Hypocrisy is nothing new for Michael Moore, nor the Hollywood Left. But Hollywood makes...

Who is this gaunt and haunted, French-looking apparition nicknamed "Ichabod" by his preppy classmates? And what could America expect from a John...

    “STEALING THE SHOW” IS A TACTIC now used not just in show business, but also in sports, culture, commerce and politics.  The weapon most often used to do this is shock. The aftermath is often disorientation, distortion and a degraded society. On Sunday, for example, singer Michael Jackson’s sister Janet stole the biggest show in sports, with the biggest riveted male audience – the Superbowl – with a halftime show that featured white singer Justin Timberlake simulating rape by tearing off her clothing to reveal a bare breast. For any who missed it, Matt Drudge enterprisingly provided a closeup...

    PONTEFICATIONS“AN AMERICA THAT BELONGS NOT TO THE PRIVILEGED, not to the few, but to all Americans.” That was what the winner of the New Hampshire Primary promised Tuesday night in his victory speech. But, paradoxically, if Senator John Kerry becomes the Democratic nominee and is elected this November, the White House for the next four or eight years will belong to a man born to enormous wealth and privilege. Kerry as a boy was raised and educated mostly in Europe. He fluently speaks, and thinks in, French. He preferred to marry wealthy women of foreign orientation. He believes that...

    WILL COMMUNIST VIETNAM BE AMONG THE BIGGEST behind-the-scenes bankrollers of the Democratic National Convention this July 26-29 in Boston?  It already has been, via a de facto intermediary, thanks to the Massachusetts boy and friend of Hanoi now likely to be nominated there as the Democrats’ presidential standard-bearer.Senator John F. Kerry has a long political career, distinguished by his willingness to go farther Left in politics and lower for money than most other American politicians would dream of going.  He has been largely unnoticed outside the liberal Northeast and the approving pages of leftist magazines and newspapers. But now, with...
  • Rice vs. Red-ucation: Who is the "illiterate"-Condoleezza Rice or Marxist dictator Hugo Chavez?

    Rice vs. Red-ucationBy Lowell PonteFrontPageMagazine.com | January 14, 2004 CONDOLEEZZA RICE IS A “TRUE ILLITERATE,” said a patronizing Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. This Marxist thug added that he had asked his comrade Cuban dictator Fidel Castro to mail America’s National Security Advisor samples of Cuban books now being used to teach Venezuelan children literacy to “see if she learns to respect the dignity of the people and learns a bit about us.”Apparently President Chavez is both a racist and a puny macho sexist to make such stupid remarks. His stunted manhood is threatened by criticism from this powerful woman....

    "RACE, GUNS, GOD AND GAYS.”  HOWARD DEAN, the frontrunner for the 2004 Democratic Presidential nomination, in November told a Tallahassee audience that Southerners must stop basing their votes on these four issues. But when he campaigns this week in South Carolina, whose primary vote comes February 2 immediately after New Hampshire’s, Dean plans to bring Jesus into nearly every speech.   Dean made it clear, however, that he would be discussing his Christian faith only in Southern states, the states he stereotyped two months ago as being full of rednecks with Confederate flags on their pickup trucks. The reasons for Dean’s...

    (Dude, Where’s My Country? By Michael Moore, Warner Books 249 pages, $24.95) MILLIONAIRE LEFTIST MICHAEL MOORE lives in an America different from yours and mine, and not just because wealth has given him an insular life of privilege on liberal Manhattan’s Upper West Side. In Moore’s myopia, the America he sees in Chapter 9 of his latest bestselling book Dude, Where’s My Country? is populated by Leftists like himself. In this "Liberal Paradise" 57 percent of his fellow citizens believe that abortion should be legal "in all or most cases," 86 percent say they agree with the "goals" of the...

    The Art of Religious War By Lowell Ponte FrontPageMagazine.com | December 5, 2003 "RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION MUST DISAPPEAR FROM THE SCHOOLS…. The man who is tied to the dogmas of the Churches need look for nothing from us in the future.” Thus declared the Nazi inspector of Munich city schools in Germany, June 1939. His words appear in the July 1945 U.S. Office of Strategic Services (OSS) study “The Nazi Master Plan,” available online in pdf format in four parts from the “Nuremberg Project” at Rutgers University and the Rutgers Journal of Law and Religion. “Implementation of this objective started with...

Boasting of their role in these horrors are Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaeda and a Turkish terror group linked to it. These bombs killed Jews at...

Clark could be seen on the Cable News Network as a “military expert” criticizing the Bush Administration. A quick victory in Iraq “was not going to happen,” he told viewers on March 25, shortly  before the quickest blitzkrieg victory of its size in military history occurred.  But his words doubtless brought comfort to the fans of...
