    While attending an event billed as "open to the public", conservative blogger Adam Sharp was harassed, roughed up and forcibly removed. His "crime"? Someone at the Washington University at St. Louis thought Sharp worked for Fox News, and didn't like the questions he was asking Van Jones - the main speaker at the event. Gateway Pundit reported that "several university officials harassed the citizen journalists at the event. One university thug even roughed up Sharp and grabbed for his camera." Van Jones was recently ousted from his White House position as the so-called "green jobs czar" after his admitted communism...

    On October 19 outside the venue where a candidate debate was about to be held between Arizona’s Democratic Representative Gabrielle Giffords and her Republican challenger Jesse Kelly, a MoveOn.org-style, left-wing activist physically accosted a lone conservative that had the temerity to yell back and challenge the leftist’s outrageous claims. The violence prone leftist, a distempered fellow named Fred Highton, was whining about Republicans with an electric PA system outside the University of Arizona. Highton was there with a whole cadre of comrades to protest “Rpublicorp” Republicans. After listening to Highton’s blather, a conservative in the audience began to yell back...

    The United States is emerging as the prison guard of the world, Angela Davis told a UW-Madison audience Thursday. Between the prisoners the U.S. is holding in Iraq and Afghanistan and in secret CIA prisons, the county is promoting strategies of incarceration based on torture, said Davis, the former Black Panther Party member who now is chair of feminist studies at the University of California-Santa Cruz. The evidence of torture in military prisons only highlights what is already going on in domestic prisons, she said. "We have not even begun to talk about the people who are the victims of...

    MILWAUKEE — A U.S. lawmaker's son and three Democratic campaign workers were sentenced Wednesday to four to six months in jail for slashing tires outside a Bush-Cheney campaign office on Election Day 2004. The men pleaded no contest in January to misdemeanor property damage. A fifth worker was found not guilty. "This case had to be a public example of what can happen when you interfere with voters' rights," said Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Michael Brennan, who rejected prosecutors' recommendation of probation for the four men. The Wisconsin state Republican Party had rented more than 100 vehicles to give rides...

    Highland Heights, KY -- A Northern Kentucky University professor who destroyed a pro-life display against abortion and encouraged her students to vandalize it as well is defending her actions.

    Days ago, Cynthia McKinney was a heroine to local Democrats because she was standing up for disenfranchised voters everywhere. The controversial congresswoman from Georgia was even worthy of taking center stage at a rally at one of area's most identifiable events: the Sarasota Film Festival. But that was before McKinney was accused of striking a Capitol police officer and became this week's target for late-night comedians. Now, Democrats are doing everything they can to distance themselves from McKinney, including canceling the rally. It wasn't public pressure that caused the cancellation, said Democratic Party Chairman Henry Bright. It was the fact...

    Greenpeace has accused the Japanese whaling vessel Nisshin Maru of deliberately ramming its boat, the Arctic Sunrise, in the Southern Ocean before steaming off at high speed. The anti-whaling activists say they tried to contact the Japanese whaling boat shortly before they clashed. Greenpeace says none of the 25 crew on board the Arctic Sunrise were hurt and the boat is still seaworthy, despite receiving some damage. However, a statement from the Japan's Institute of Cetacean Research says the Nisshin Maru was deliberately rammed by Greenpeace. Greenpeace expedition leader Shane Rattenbury says his captain tried unsuccessfully to contact the captain...

    Los Angeles - In a move that could test free-speech rights, the city attorney charged animal rights activists with illegally menacing government employees during protests that included acts of vandalism and a bomb scare.

City officials allege that activists calling themselves the Animal Defense League have used increasingly aggressive tactics in the last year to put pressure on City Hall to stop euthanizing animals in city shelters.

No, not to count her blessings — but to rant against conservative journalist Bob Novak, author Ann Coulter and the Fox News Channel. She didn’t have anything better to do for Thanksgiving? Accessorized by a permanent scowl (hard to believe she was once considered a comedienne), Garofalo accused conservatives of having “an anger management problem.” Without a trace of irony, the frowning Garofalo griped about “right-wing partisan hacks” who “are always on the verge of punching...
