    After being elected twice as a Republican to the position of county attorney in Anderson County, Kan., Fred Campbell decided following the Nov. 2 elections to drop his Republican Party affiliation in favor of the Libertarian Party, saying the GOP has abandoned the idea of minimal government. Campbell was re-elected in November with no opposition. He has been a Republican for years, primarily because he's "always been in favor of less government rather than more," he said. "I've always thought that the Republican Party was the major party that went along with that philosophy," Campbell explained. "But in the last...

    Six Navy SEALs filed a lawsuit against the Associated Press and one of its reporters yesterday, saying the news organization revealed their identities, compromised their security and invaded their privacy by publishing personal photographs in a Dec. 4 story.     The complaint says AP reporter Seth Hettena used about 40 images from the personal photo-storage Web site of a Navy SEAL wife. [snip] The images were picked up by the Arab press, including Al Jazeera, and have made their way onto a billboard outside U.S. Naval Base Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, where detainees from the war on terror are being kept.

Res. 419, introduced by Representative John Conyers (D-MI). Click here for the link. The language concerning “religiously intolerant remarks” amounts to censorship of Christian, as well as other beliefs. The resolution is a knee-jerk reaction to Lieutenant General William “Jerry” Boykin’s exercise of Free Speech and Freedom of Religion in his own church. Proposing such a bill is the worst kid of appeasement to a group that is aggressively intolerant to non-Muslims around the...

There’s a man wedged into every corner. There’s a man in every chair. The air is dense with cigarette smoke and with the staleness of packed troops and sour wool. “Don’t think I’m sticking up for the Germans,” puts in the lanky young captain in the upper berth, “but…” “To hell with the Germans,” says the broad-shouldered dark lieutenant. “It’s what our boys have...

    Across the nation, public officials will strike somber poses and shed television-friendly tears and bow their blow-dried heads in memory of the victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. They'll hold hands, light candles and pass around a plateful of platitudes: "Never forget," they'll intone. "Let's roll," they'll thunder. "God bless America," they'll warble in perfect harmony. They'll assure us that they are committed to fighting terror and securing our borders and doing whatever it takes to protect the homeland from another horrific mass murder at the hands of freedom-hating fanatics.

Some were prearranged calls to contacts using public pay phones. The records, obtained by The Sunday Times, show that the terrorist leader made more calls to Britain than any other country in the two years that he used the phone. He stopped...

Because emotions of pleasure and pain etc, have a tendency to hard wire a learned fact. It is called the law of effect, and it is the enemy's strategy that aims at bypassing reason.

I've marched in my share of peace demonstrations - in university, and after I joined the real world. And like many good people around the world, my gut initially questioned the U.S.-led drive to oust Saddam Hussein. Did all those clever cynics crowing about how it was really Bush's "Daddy's war" and "all about oil" have a point? Was there really a 9/11 connection or was Saddam just a stand-in for the...

    Democrat Political Attacks Democrat insinuations that the President and Administration had prior knowledge of the September 11th tragedy is an outrageous political attack on the Commander-in-Chief during wartime. Principled dissent and disagreement are at the heart of democracy. However, principled dissent should not be confused with the political gamesmanship and partisan attacks being launched by Democrats. The insinuation that President Bush had prior knowledge of the September 11th attacks is nonsensical but not without precedent. Conspiracy theorists have long accused FDR of having prior knowledge of the December 7, 1941, surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. Conspiracy theories are as American...

Army Radio's Amit Segal reported yesterday that Ha'aretz has experienced a wave of subscriptions cancellations, and that the paper has provided a list of special instructions in order to give the newspaper's sales representatives tools to respond to readers who want to cancel their subscriptions. The list includes answers to questions...

    Europe to Israel—Drop Dead Why self-defense by the Jewish state is verboten. BY DAVID GELERNTER ISRAEL IS IN BIG TROUBLE with nearly the whole enlightened world—European "peace activists" and Arab diplomats and Zbigniew Brzezinski and all sorts of mainstream American journalists—for not allowing Palestinian terrorists to kill its citizens with impunity. The Europeans rushed to the West Bank town of Ramallah to surround and protect the world's best-loved terrorist—that kindly old grump Yasser Arafat, hero of his people, idol of Europe, Nobel laureate, ripper-up of Jewish children. No Israeli would dare shoot Arafat if there were any risk of harming...

    The United States wants to give two teams of Canadian snipers the Bronze Star, a decoration for bravery, for their work in rooting out Taliban and al-Qaeda holdouts in eastern Afghanistan, but Canadian defence officials put the medals on hold, the National Post has learned. The five snipers spent 19 days fighting alongside the scout platoon of the United States Army's 187th "Rakkasan" brigade last month, clearing out diehard fighters from the mountains near Gardez in eastern Afghanistan. The Americans were so impressed by the Canadian snipers that they recommended them for medals after the battle. Sources told the Post...

    RINCETON, N.J., April 18 — Family members of the passengers on United Flight 93, which crashed in rural Pennsylvania after being hijacked on Sept. 11, listened today to the plane's cockpit voice recorder and said it further confirmed their belief that their loved ones behaved heroically in thwarting the terrorists.A transcript that was projected on a screen as families listened to the voice recorder revealed that the hijackers, apparently holed up in the cockpit, said in Arabic of the passengers, "They're trying to get in," said family members who spoke on the condition of anonymity.In English, a shout of...

    Police arrest Scott LoBaid, 38, after he used an ax to behead an effigy of radical attorney Lynn Stewart in a one-man protest outside her office on Broadway in New York on April 17, 2002. Stewart and three followers of Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman were indicted April 9 on charges that they helped the Muslim cleric direct his al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorist group from his federal prison cell. LoBaid, an artist, said he was expressing himself and that Stewart was a "terrorist". REUTERS/Peter Morgan

    'They're coming' Alan W. DowdPublished 4/2/2002      "Let's roll." By now, Todd Beamer's two-word battle cry is as much a part of our national lexicon as Franklin Roosevelt's "date of infamy," John F. Kennedy's "bear any burden," or Ronald Reagan's "tear down this wall." Mr. Beamer's words, captured by a cell phone as he led Flight 93's passenger revolt on September 11, have inspired and redefined a nation. They have been quoted by presidents and prime ministers, reproduced on bumper stickers, plastered on the side of buildings, emblazoned on fighter-jets and stenciled on bombs.      But as new FBI transcripts remind us,...

    Demonstrators from all points of the activist compass plan to take their varied causes to the streets of downtown Washington next weekend for what is shaping up to be a massive display of multi-purpose protest. At least four demonstrations are set for April 20 in the heart of the capital, and organizers say they expect crowds to number anywhere from several thousand to tens of thousands, though no one can say exactly how many. Protests are also planned that Friday, Sunday and Monday. As a counter-protest, the national conservative group Free Republic is organizing the "Patriots Rally for America" on...

    4/8/02AARWarm enough not to complain.No harassments on the train-ride into the enemy’s domain. A few of the TERRORISTS were actually on-time, though most showed up after 5:45. They are really getting boring with the same old chants, even though they get stuck in my helpless brain for hours afterward. There wasn’t a big showing of Israeli/Jewish support in position this time, but fellow Freepers seamole, and jonatron were on-hand to witness the TERRORISTS in action. “Hey hey...ho ho...the occupation’s got to go.” There was little heckling on the good side of the street, but some passersby got a little overheated...
