    The biggest news yesterday came before General David Petraeus or Ambassador Ryan Crocker uttered a single word in the hearings on progress in Iraq.And it came in the form of a newspaper ad, paid for by The ad, which accused Petraeus of "cooking the books for the White House", was roundly condemned by Republicans who time and again in the hearings held up the ad in the New York Times and called on Democrats to condemn it. The statement from RNC spokesman Mike Duncan was typical of the rhetoric: "Will Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and the rest of the...

    Anti-war activists vowed they will have long memories about the deal Democratic leaders struck with the Bush administration this week on Iraq war funding, warning that they will exact retribution from lawmakers in both parties in 2008. Enraged by what they considered capitulation by Democrats, anti-war leaders vowed to redouble their efforts at defeating the next funding request when it comes up as expected in September. The group, which previously had been an ally of the Democratic leadership on the war issue, in a statement raised the specter of "in-district advertising and recruitment of primary challengers" as punishment for...

    The most outspoken critics of the $124 billion wartime spending bill in the House are facing withering support in their fight to defeat it. California Democratic Reps. Maxine Waters and Lynn Woolsey said that many of their liberal colleagues were caving under pressure from Democratic leaders who, according to at least one congressman, have threatened to block requests for new funds for his district. They also cited's endorsement of the measure Monday as a blow to their efforts. "This is the process: people who feel strongly about this issue hold out as long as they can," said Waters. "A...

    Anti-War Groups Seek Breakthrough Moment Next Monday marks four years since the United States attacked Iraq. Anti-war groups are planning to protest the conflict over the next several days, at events in Washington, D.C., and around the country. But the anti-war movement, while enjoying broader support than anti-war protests of the Vietnam era, is struggling to reach mainstream America. Activists are organizing Web campaigns to pressure members of Congress. And Move On, a leader in the anti-war movement, has its own political action committee. Apparently, marching on the Pentagon with flowers is considered to be passe.

    Nevada Democratic Party officials said Friday they were canceling a presidential debate co-sponsored by the Fox News Channel, following a joke chairman Roger Ailes made about Democratic candidate Barack Obama. In a letter sent to Fox News, Nevada State Democratic Party Chairman Tom Collins and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Ailes "went too far" with comments made the night before. The letter makes no reference to a crusade by the liberal activist group to boycott Fox, which it calls a "right-wing mouthpiece." Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards dropped out of the debate Thursday, citing in part Fox's participation....

    Bill Would Remove Grounds for Impeachment, Bush Critics Suggest By Susan Jones Senior Editor September 19, 2006 ( - A bill now pending in the Senate would make the Bush administration's enemy wiretapping program more practical and flexible, removing all doubt about its legality. But that worries some of Bush's fiercest critics. According to one anti-Bush group, the bill "would pardon President Bush for breaking the law by illegally wiretapping innocent Americans without warrants."'s political action committee has accused Sen. Arlen Specter (R-Pa.) of caving in to pressure when he introduced a bill that "justifies everything the president...

Ned Lamont wins and the next day Republicans are politicizing a terror threat with outrageous comments.

This week newspapers will print letters to the editor about last week's terror threat. If thousands of us write letters we can remind the public that five years after 9/11...

    Democrats lost the evangelical vote decades ago. As the last election showed, they are now in danger of permanently losing Catholics. But the left has devised an ingenious technique for winning back disaffected Catholics – insult their Church and its leader. And they thought of this all by themselves? As part of the campaign to defeat the Republican push to end the judicial filibuster, on May 17, 2005,, PAC ran an ad appealing to anti-Catholic paranoia. The broadside was an altered photo that showed Pope Benedict XVI standing outside the Supreme Court’s chambers. The pontiff appears to be holding...

    Billionaire currency trader George Soros, in his quest to unseat President Bush, has given millions of dollars to a coalition of anti-Bush organizations whose nationwide voter-registration drive has been targeted by state and federal authorities for possible widespread fraud. Working under an umbrella organization known as America Votes, the coalition's registration drive — described by election officials as the largest in U.S. history — focused on potential voters in 14 so-called battleground states.

    Last weekend's hatefest in New York City, in which John Kerry endorsed the vicious attack of Hollywood hacks on the Commander-in-Chief, provides a sad portent of things to come. Leftist hate group announced last week that it has enlisted the help of the Hollywood elite in its partisan campaign to smear the president and stigmatize America’s War on Terror.

Bush with what appeared to be cocaine on his upper lip and nose. It sold bumper stickers with sayings like "GWBush, Not a Crackhead Anymore!" and "GWBush, Born with a Silver Spoon Up His Nose."

    There was always something quaintly old-fashioned about the way Americans embarked on the long process of choosing their next president: the town hall meetings, the closed-door caucus, the chase for state party delegates. Now, with nine Democrats vying for the job of challenging George Bush in November 2004, the process has been brought bang up to date with the arrival of a potentially revolutionary new tool: the online primary. Yesterday was the second of two days of voting at a political website of growing prominence called Proclaiming itself as a new model for grassroots activism - which is to...

    A leading anti-war group is touting a recent speech by U.S. Sen. Robert Byrd, who once belonged to the domestic terrorist group the Ku Klux Klan; an organization that waged a violent decades-long jihad against black Americans, Jews and Catholics. In a full-page ad in Sunday's New York Times, the group praised the Klansman-turned-top Democrat as "one of the most respected United States Senators" and urged that Americans needed to take his words to heart. MoveOn was referring to the senator's words about a possible war in Iraq, and not his past comments decrying blacks as "race mongrels" and...
