  • American paranoia and Bowe Bergdahl (Here it comes)

    The Taliban prisoner swap for Bowe Bergdahl might do some good, but fear and anger are getting in the way of a realistic appraisal.Richard Hofstadter opened his 1968 essay, "The Paranoid Style in American Politics," with this line: "American politics has often been an arena for angry minds." He continues, "Behind this I believe there is a style of mind that is far from new and that is not necessarily right-wing. I call it the paranoid style simply because no other word adequately evokes the sense of heated exaggeration, suspiciousness, and conspiratorial fantasy that I have in mind." One wonders...

    Incredibly, President George W. Bush told French President Jacques Chirac in early 2003 that Iraq must be invaded to thwart Gog and Magog, the Bible's satanic agents of the Apocalypse. Honest. This isn't a joke. The president of the United States, in a top-secret phone call to a major European ally, asked for French troops to join American soldiers in attacking Iraq as a mission from God. Now out of office, Chirac recounts that the American leader appealed to their "common faith" (Christianity) and told him: "Gog and Magog are at work in the Middle East. ... The biblical prophecies...

    Have you seen this delicious little quote from Pennsylvania Democrat Congressman Paul Jankorski? Why it would seem that Mr. Jankorski is admitting that the Democrats lied about what was going on in Iraq during the 2006 mid-term elections? Here's his quote: "I'll tell you my impression. We really in this last election, when I say we ... the Democrats ... that if we won the Congressional elections we could stop the war. Now anybody who was a good student of government would know that wasn't true. "But you know ... the temptation to want to win back the Congress ......

    The Daily Mail ^ | 1st December 2006
    The BBC triggered outrage yesterday by calling for the views of extremists and fundamentalists to be given the same weight as those of mainstream politicians. The corporation's head of television news, Peter Horrocks, said groups such as the Taliban and the far-Right BNP need more airtime - at the expense of moderate opinion. He said all views need to be treated with the same respect, describing his proposals as 'radical impartiality'. But his comments prompted furious reaction, critics labelling them 'political correctness gone insane'. Mr Horrocks came under fire in his former role as BBC2' s Newsnight editor - for...

    By Amanda Crissup Marietta Daily Journal Staff Writer MARIETTA - America's image as a Lone Ranger cowboy figure troubles former Democratic U.S. Sen. Wyche Fowler Jr. "If we're the superpower, if we have all the cards - why can't we be like John Wayne and walk into town and talk first before we shoot?" Fowler said. Fowler, an Atlanta native and former Marietta resident who served as U.S. ambassador to Saudi Arabia from 1987 to 1992, addressed the Marietta Rotary Club on Wednesday about America's international image. "America isn't acting like America," Fowler said. As chairman of the board of...

    LONDON (EJP)--- Prominent British film director Ken Loach has called for a boycott of state-sponsored Israeli cultural institutions in response to Israel’s actions in Lebanon, and has encouraged others to follow suit. The 69-year-old winner of this year’s Palme d’Or award at the Cannes Film Festival has also refused an invite to attend this year’s Haifa Film Festival in protest against Israel’s actions during the recent hostilities in Lebanon. He said: “I support the call by Palestinian film-makers, artists and others to boycott state sponsored Israeli cultural institutions and urge others to join their campaign. “Palestinians are driven to call...

    An astonishing thing has happened. Despite the fact that the Mideast fighting between Israel and Hezbollah has taken center stage in the news, head KOmmie KOs (Markos Moulitsas) has boldly asserted that he WON'T be discussing this conflict as you can read in his KOs STORY titled, "Why I won't write about Israel/Lebanon/Palestine fighting." As you will see, KOs gives us a really DOPEY explanation for his ostrich-like evasion of this topic. Of course, the REAL reason is that KOs, like so many other leftists, favors the Hezbollah terrorists but doesn't want to find himself drawn into a position...

    Little Green Footballs notes one of the New York Times' "memorable photographs," which was taken by Times photographer Joao Silva. Silva was in the room with a “Mahdi Army” sniper who was trying to kill American soldiers: The Times' commentary on the photo, by Assistant Managing Editor for Photography Michele McNally: "Right there with the Mahdi army. Incredible courage." We have written before about the wire services' use of Iraqi stringers who appear to be members of, or at the least friendly with, terrorist groups. This is a step beyond that, as Silva isn't just an anonymous stringer, but is...

    Group Authoring Fatwa Has Links to Bin Laden Ally By Sherrie Gossett July 29, 2005 (CNSNews.com) - Thursday's religious edict condemning terrorism was authored and issued by the Fiqh Council of North America, an association of Muslim jurists who interpret Islamic law. The edict was signed by 18 council scholars. The Fiqh Council of North America traces its origins to the early 1960s and the Religious Affairs Committee of the Muslim Students Association (MSA) of the United States and Canada, according to the council's website. This Religious Affairs Committee evolved into the Fiqh Committee of the Islamic Society of North...

    Intervene and Protest Against IR Regime's Illegal Ballot Boxes On US Soil SMCCDI (Urgent Action) Jun 10, 2005 Dear Iranians, Dear Freedom Lovers, The Islamic Republic (IR) regime has scheduled tens of illegal ballot boxes on the US soil. Such policy is nothing else than an illegal and desperate effort in order to legitimize its sham Presidential elections planned for June 17, 2005. Lacking of inside popular support and legitimacy, clerics are hoping that any outside participation can become an additional propaganda tool and an exchange token for their political survival that can give them a higher hand in their...

    SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico -- Four British citizens released from Guantanamo Bay filed a lawsuit Wednesday against the United States seeking $10 million each in damages for abuse they allegedly suffered at the U.S. military outpost in Cuba, attorneys said Wednesday. The suit on behalf of Shafiq Rasul, 26, Asif Iqbal, 22, Rhuhel Ahmed, 22, and Jamal Al-Harith, 37, was filed by the Center for Constitutional Rights and a Washington-based law firm. The four were released to British authorities in March after nearly three years at Guantanamo Bay. They were detained in northern Afghanistan on Nov. 28, 2001, by the...

    The Age ^ | 5-6-04 | David Bernstein
    Abusing the most emotive of Jewish symbols is deeply offensive, writes David Bernstein. The decision to remove the offensive anti-Israel art display in Flinders Street has, inevitably, rekindled the freedom of speech and art debate that erupted over Andres Serrano's equally offensive Piss Christ a few years ago. There was never any doubt that the exhibit - which superimposed a series of outrageously distorted "facts" about Israel's mistreatment of the Palestinians on a huge Star of David - was going to enrage the local Jewish community. For obvious and understandable reasons. In the first place, the use of the Star...
