    Code Pink is on a mission in Afghanistan this week to undermine support for the war on terror and to bring pressure to bear for a precipitous U.S. withdrawal from the former home of al Qaeda and the Taliban regardless of the consequences.There's just one problem, Code Pink is finding it impossible to gin up the propaganda needed to make their case.On this thread posted a few days ago, I noted how the photos Code Pink posted of Afghan women and girls proved the wisdom of President Bush's decision to liberate Afghanistan after 9/11. They were free to work, study...

    A special spot in hell is reserved for the media whose shameless hypocrisy has sunk to new lows with their feigned indignation over health care town hall protests. Even as they currently bluster about 'astroturf' and shout down guests about shouting people down, these same Obama sycophants refused to condemn orchestrated disruptions aimed at the Bush administration, and, in some cases, may actually have conspired to execute them. According to Dante, the eighth circle of hell holds those who have committed conscious fraud or treachery -- such as the Media wing of the Democratic Party has been perpetrating. Perhaps most...

The ultra-leftist subversive, who years ago said moving to Cuba made her feel "like [she] died and went to heaven," bought a home on Capitol Hill, according to District of Columbia records: Note that Benjamin's address has been redacted -- even Code Pink crazies deserve some privacy.She must feel that it's important to be here to lobby her friends on Capitol Hill and in the Obama administration.

Fort Wayne realtor Annie Eckrich says her stolen identification was used by operatives to illegally gain entry onto the convention floor. Eckrich, who was an alternate delegate to the Republican Party extravaganza in Minneapolis- St. Paul, says she didn't know anything about what happened until a reporter called her, asking if she'd handed over her credentials to protesters. The story has gotten national attention on several political blogs. One of those blogs has displayed a picture of a simple badge...

They unzipped the bags in front of Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi's house, dumped the shoes on her lawn, and went on to arrange loafers, pumps, and pink glittery sandals like hawkers at a yard sale. Anchoring their display was a pair of combat boots, placed on Pelosi's doorstep. The boots, like the other shoes, had been pulled from a dead body in Iraq—the body of Casey Sheehan, in fact, whose mother, Cindy, is running as an Independent...

The arrests landed Benjamin's and Wright's names in an FBI-run database, the National Crime Information Center, which Canada also relies on to screen visitors. When the two women visited the country in August, they were told they would have to apply for "criminal rehabilitation" and pay $200 if they wanted to visit again. Neither did.

    Pillars of the Hate America Left, who have taken great pains to aid the enemy in every American military venture for 20 years, just returned {in January) from Iraq, where they delivered more than half-a-million dollars in aid to “the other side”– with the full knowledge and consent of left-wing Congressman Henry Waxman, D-CA. Waxman signed a letter allowing radical leftist Medea Benjamin and a dozen of her cohorts – some of whom had lost relatives in the Iraq War – to slip the $600,000 of cash and supplies into camps housing refugees from Fallujah, with less outside scrutiny of...

    Cindy Sheehan, Tom Hayden, and the Hate America Left meet with pro-Ba'athist members of the Iraqi parliament to discuss “peace.” TO FIND PEOPLE WHO HATE AMERICA AS MUCH AS THEY DO, the Fifth Column Left had to go halfway around the world to meet with Iraqi political leaders who call terrorism “honorable national resistance” and say foreign jihadists “are guaranteed Paradise” – and at least one of whom has ties to militia leader Muqtada al-Sadr. By the end of the trip, the American leftists would echo these sentiments. Somehow most of the media – occupied with interminable coverage of Hurricane...

Instead they were presented as legitimate players in the debate on the war and Clinton's candidacy.Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin was on The O'Reilly Factor opposite a Democratic consultant. Host Bill O'Reilly praised Benjamin for answering his softball questions about Code Pink's lobbying...

    Code Pink was founded in 2002 as a women-run, women-led peace organization with a creative approach to protest. There are at least 250 chapters, mostly in this country; in recent months, the groups' focus has coalesced around lobbying Congress to end the Iraq war. In March, Code Pink started renting a group house so women descending on the District would have a place to stay. SNIP "We're trying to change the culture and say, 'Listen, these are not your hallowed halls of seclusion,' " says Murphy, 53, who served in the Peace Corps and used to work for the U.S....

However, Capitol Police prevented the taping of a drawn donkey to the wall. Code Pink members were crying outside Pelosi’s office. When asked why, Rae Abileah, 24, said she was crying out of...

    This January, three Methow Valley residents will defy U.S. government restrictions and travel to Cuba. Despite the U.S. embargo against Cuba, an estimated 80,000 Americans travel to the island each year to experience Cuba’s culture, music and food. But the three visitors from the Methow have a different destination than most: Guantánamo Bay. Dana Visalli and Anaka Mines plan to fly to Cuba (via Mexico) and then travel to Guantánamo City. There, they will meet up with other peace activists and participate in a conference focusing on the "illegal detention and torture" of people at Guantánamo prison, according to an...
