  • Safire: I Remember Muammar

    WASHINGTON — As American tanks began to roll through Iraq to overthrow Saddam, Libya's longtime terrorist, Muammar Qaddafi, came up with a strategy to avoid being next on the regime-change list: pre-emptive surrender. Nobody calls it that, of course. Diplomats and doves want to treat the dictator's epiphany as the result of patient negotiation stretching back for decades. Some Republicans claim he was softened up by a bomb dropped his way in the Reagan years. But three years after that, his terrorists murdered 259 people aboard Pan Am 103. Subsequent sanctions led to severe economic pain and the threat of...

    The newly organized Students of American Liberty at East Tennessee State University held a pro-peace and anti-war lecture Wednesday night titled “Obama’s Wars.” “I feel it’s a shame that since President Obama has been elected, all talk and speaking out against the war has stopped,” SAL President Matthew Adam Jeffers said. “It’s a shame because he is actually perpetuating the war by bombing Pakistan and sending 17,000 of our troops into Afghanistan. The featured speaker, introduced by Tennessee Libertarian Party Chairman Tony Walls, was antiwar.com’s editorial director Justin Raimondo. “When the illusion of Barack Obama, the great peacemaker, is finally...

    Denunciations of U.S. ‘imperialism,” which were a regular staple of Soviet TV, are back on the Russian version. ...recent guests on Russia Today have included Alexander Cockburn, “an American political journalist,” and Justin Raimondo, said to be “a top U.S. author.” Cockburn denounced John McCain as a warmonger, while Raimondo warned the Russians to investigate what’s on those humanitarian flights to Georgia. “I would check that out, if I were you,” he was quoted by Russia Today as saying. The Russian channel declared, “‘Say No to War’ has been Justin Raimondo’s slogan for over a decade―from the U.S. intervention in...

    The Defective Right   By William R. HawkinsFrontPageMagazine.com | Thursday, September 27, 2007 Last weekend, the John Randolph Club held its annual meeting in Washington, DC. It is a project of the Rockford Institute, a group with which I have been associated for a quarter century. The JRC was founded eighteen years ago to bring together traditional conservatives and right-libertarians for a dialogue on issues of common concern. As Rockford President Thomas Fleming noted in his opening speech, the libertarians don’t much attend the JRC these days. Unfortunately, they have been replaced by left-wingers (libertarian and Marxist) whose mission...

    Justin Raimondo has posted a very amusing and breathless account of the events in Kyrgyzstan — all worked around a hoax, an alleged memo purloined from the U.S. Embassy in Kyrgyzstan. Not only has it been disavowed by the U.S. Embassy, but the language is not that of a native speaker of English: F.Kulov shares and adheres to American concepts of freedom and democracy and can be viewed as a dubbing candidate for the presidency in case our main candidate Bakiev is defeated. Young people are most likely oriented to the West. Therefore we consider it extremely important to popularize...

Indeed, the request for evidence has earned yours truly the droll title of “Commissar Laksin” and the assertion that I’m engaging in libel. Now that’s touchy, even for a libertarian. For all his bluster, however, I’m happy to report that Justin has obliged. Just one problem: It doesn’t help his case. In fact, the September 2001 piece starts off...

    Justin Raimondo: An American Neo-Fascist By Stephen Schwartz FrontPageMagazine.com | March 15, 2005 Dennis “Justin” Raimondo is a minor celebrity in the U.S., thanks to a 10-year career as an amateur demagogue in the libertarian milieu of the San Francisco Bay Area, a political environment where anything goes and nothing matters. He has the familiar personality traits of the type: “sentimental formlessness, absence of disciplined thought, ignorance combined with gaudy erudition.”  He poses as a conservative but maintains a website at antiwar.com, that features anti-American cranks like Noam Chomsky and is hugely popular with the left – not surprisingly since it...

    SAUDI 'SOLDIER' BY STEPHEN SCHWARTZ IN Alexandria, Va., on Tuesday, a 23-year-old Northern Virginia man of Saudi Arabian background named Ahmed Omar Abu Ali was charged with conspiring to assassinate President Bush. Abu Ali and his accomplices are accused of plotting to kill the president by gunfire or a car bomb. The indictment also spells out such criminal activities as assisting and receiving support from Osama bin Laden's band of murderers. Abu Ali was extradited to Virginia after many months in a Saudi jail. What's most remarkable about this case is the degree to which this would-be assassin is a...

    The U.S. is engaged in a bloody war in Iraq for the purpose of eliminating the remnants of a terrorist regime, foreign terrorists, and bringing democracy to Iraq and the region. It is a big gamble that has put radical Islam on the defensive around the world. But shocking evidence demonstrates that controversial former U.S. Marine and former U.N. weapons inspector Scott Ritter, who now writes for the anti-American Arab "news" organization Al Jazeera, was involved in a controversial effort to stop the war by enlisting prominent personalities in a "peace" campaign.

    <p>By all accounts, Heinz is a remarkably successful company. However, for all the great wealth Heinz has bestowed upon the Kerry household, Mr. Kerry would do well to look in the gold-plated mirror before he seeks to further exploit the political gains he realized from the unfortunate rejection of Anthony Raimondo as the Commerce Department's new assistant secretary for manufacturing. The widely expected appointment was canceled after Mr. Kerry's campaign gleefully revealed that Mr. Raimondo, a Nebraska businessman, had laid off 75 of his U.S. workers in 2002 as he prepared to open a factory in China. Combined with the Kerry-induced hysteria over outsourcing, that was enough to scuttle the nomination.</p>

    Six months after promising to create an office to help the nation's struggling manufacturers, President Bush settled on someone to head it, but the nomination was being reconsidered last night after Democrats revealed that his candidate had opened a factory in China. Several officials said the nomination may be scrapped because of the political risk but said that had not been decided. Bush's opponent, Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.), has made job losses his chief point of attack, and some administration officials feared the nomination could hand him fresh ammunition. In late afternoon, the administration announced that the new assistant...

The controvercy arose Wednesday when Sen. John Kerry raised questions about Tony Raimondo's stance on shifting U.S. jobs to foreign countries. The Bush administration said Raimondo's withdrawal was related to Nebraska political issues and not the flap raised by the Kerry campaign.

    WASHINGTON -- Two members of a Virginia-based Islamic terrorism network pleaded guilty to weapons and explosives charges Friday and promised to help the government, Attorney General John Ashcroft said. Randall Royer and Ibrahim al-Hamdi, who entered their pleas in suburban Alexandria, Virginia., had ties to the Lashkar-e-Taiba group seeking to drive India out of Kashmir. A federal indictment said the Northern Virginia group also had broader goals of helping the al-Qaida network; Afghanistan's former ruling militia, the Taliban; and rebels in Chechnya. Both Royer, 30, and al-Hamdi, 26, pleaded guilty to using and discharging a firearm during, and in relation...

    NINE ISRAELI NATIONALS --- who CSIS suspects are possible foreign agents -- were arrested by Immigration and Ottawa police tactical officers last Friday, blocks from Parliament Hill. The nine have all been charged by Immigration for working in Canada illegally. All are in their 20s and were apparently selling art in Ottawa. The arrests follow similar takedowns of Israelis in Toronto and Calgary over the past few weeks. An Ottawa police source said police were told members of the group were possible agents from Mossad, Israel's spy agency, but given no further information by CSIS. CSIS declined to comment yesterday....

    The case of Christopher Hitchens is emblematic of so many things: how success can ruin a writer, how far an aristocratic British accent can get you on the American scene, how Trotskyism can morph into Rumsfeld-ism without any visible exertion. The former features editor of the Socialist Worker newspaper is today the Court Polemicist of the War Party, whose jeremiads now grace the glossy pages of Vanity Fair magazine. His evolution, more clearly and interestingly than any other figure, maps the progress of a new ideology, a political phenomenon unique to our time, one that is neither "left" nor "right."...

    WE HAVE A WINNER (OR LOSER, AS THE CASE MAY BE) By Stephen Schwartz The entire country, if not the world, has now seen the infamous image from San Francisco of two anarchists carrying a banner reading "We Support Our Troops When They SHOOT Their Officers." My first reaction to this item of despicable propaganda was, let me say, a bit offhand.

    Pat Buchanan´s new magazine, The American Conservative, has published an article by Rustin Raimondo about a Left-Right alliance against war with Iraq. I don´t really care what position he takes on the war, but Raimondo´s changing view on working with communists and leftists against the Bush policy deserves scrutiny. Raimondo, a libertarian and writer for antiwar.com, said last October that he was sick and tired of the communist Workers World Party (WWP) dominating the anti-war movement. He attended a rally in San Francisco and thought it was too anti-American and anti-capitalist. His column ran under the headline, "I Ain´t Marchin´...
