    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...

  • Town Hall Outrage? Media cooperated in disruptions at GOP events

    American Thinker ^ | 14 August, 2009 | William Tate
    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...

    Left-wing performance artist Medea Benjamin of Code Pink (shown at left in above photo) appears to be settling down here in the nation's capital, at least for now. 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. Benjamin gets kudos because unlike...

    CAIRO, Egypt – Pulitzer-prize winning author Alice Walker, who wrote "The Color Purple," is traveling to Gaza along with other female activists to highlight the devastation of the Israeli offensive on Gaza's residents.

"I love people, and I love children and I feel that the Palestinian child is just as precious as the African-American child, as the Jewish child." Walker is part...

Because, had it been Mr. Saddam Hussein you would be carrying a different plaque by now. Number 2, in our country, I know that people have told you that showing shoes at someone is an insult. But, it is a bigger insult to the host; in our culture anyone who insults a guest is insulting the host. So in our culture we believe that what Mr al-Zeidi...

    ALAN COLMES, CO-HOST: President-elect Obama made it very clear in one of his debates that he would meet without preconditions with leaders of rogue countries, like Iran and Syria, and while many blasted him for this comment, our next guest probably welcomed this diplomatic approach. Now liberal antiwar group Code Pink is concerned the soon-to-be president is shifting too much to the center and even points to some of his cabinet picks as being too hawkish. Joining us now from Code Pink is Medea Benjamin. Is that an accurate summation, Medea, of your position? MEDEA BENJAMIN, CODE PINK: Yes. Yes,...

    It turns out a protest aimed at disrupting events at last week's Republican National Convention had a Fort Wayne connection. 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...

    How does the pro-terrorist group Code Pink infiltrate closed events where the U.S. Secret Service is in charge of security? One way is with fake press credentials made by a diarist at the Daily Kos.Code Pink has made a habit of infiltrating events and getting close to officials under the protection of the U.S. Secret Service.Yesterday Code Pink member Desiree Farooz rushed the stage and came dangerously close to President Bush at Monticello. The weekend before she rushed John McCain. Last fall she got close enough to Condoleeza Rice to place her hands around the Secrtary of State's head.At the...
