    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz earned the praise of some fierce Democratic detractors this week when he opted to stop at a Fort Worth demonstration and talk to those protesting. The group of about a dozen individuals toting signs critical of Donald Trump’s education secretary nominee caught Cruz’s attention as he made his way to catch a flight to D.C. Local Democratic Party leader Leah Payne said she was “surprised” by the conservative senator’s willingness to interact personally with protesters.
  • Glenn Beck’s Lie Could Blow Up Ted Cruz

    Glenn Beck has been one of Ted Cruz’s most high profile surrogates—but Beck’s support could become a little less desirable when he heads to court this summer for allegedly defaming a victim of the Boston Marathon bombing…… One of Ted Cruz’s most prominent supporters could be headed to court soon to defend his Islamophobic falsehoods about a victim of terrorism. “…But come this summer, it’s Beck who could face judgement. The radio talker currently faces a defamation lawsuit—because he doubled and tripled down on charges that a victim of a terrorist attack was actually the real terrorist. “… previously unnoticed...

    To: NATIONAL EDITORS Contact: Luis Miranda of Democratic National Committee, +1-202-863-8148 WASHINGTON, April 6, 2008 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean highlighted the reasons John McCain is not a strong candidate in interviews with George Stephanopolous on ABC's This Week and Bob Schieffer on CBS's Face the Nation this morning. Dean also discussed the Democratic Party's "extraordinary candidates" and delegate selection process. On John McCain "I don't think Senator McCain would be a good president either in terms of defense or certainly in terms of national policy where he's deeply out of touch with almost everything that Americans...

    Sir Mark Malloch Brown, who recently stepped down as deputy secretary-general of the United Nations, has been appointed vice-chairman of his friend George Soros’s hedge fund company.

    RALEIGH NC - - One of the chief campaign bloggers for Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards quit Monday after conservative critics raised questions about her history of provocative online messages. Amanda Marcotte posted on her personal blog, Pandagon, that the criticism "was creating a situation where I felt that every time I coughed, I was risking the Edwards campaign." Marcotte said she resigned from her position Monday, and that her resignation was accepted by the campaign. Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, demanded last week that Edwards fire Marcotte and a second blogger, Melissa...
  • Olbermann Links Bush to Racist Caning of Senator Sumner & Domestic Terrorism

    On Wednesday's Countdown show, MSNBC host Keith Olbermann used his latest "Special Comment" not only to demand that President Bush apologize to American troops over the Iraq War, but he also blamed Bush for inspiring acts of "domestic terrorism" against critics, a la King Henry and Archbishop Thomas Becket, and bizarrely chose to inject racism by making a comparison between Bush supporters attacking the President's opponents and the the 1856 caning of anti-slavery Senator Charles Sumner by pro-slavery Congressman Preston Brooks, at one point even mentioning charges of racist "fear of miscegenation" in the current Tennesee Senate race...

    Robertson: "Evangelicals in America stand with Israel in its struggle." Israel's war against Hizbullah in Lebanon is the free world's "struggle for freedom" against Islamic-Fascism, which will soon imperil the security of the same European countries that are now criticizing Israel's war in Lebanon, prominent American Evangelical Christian leader Pat Robertson said Wednesday. "I am here to say I love Israel and that Christian Evangelicals in America stand with Israel in its struggle for freedom against Islamo-fascism, which is directed against Israel and all civilized nations of the world" Robertson said at a Jerusalem press conference during his 96-hour lightning...

  • Sheehan: Other moms of slain 'brainwashed' Cindy labels them supporters of 'murder and mayhem'

    After calling the terrorists in Iraq who killed her son "freedom fighters," anti-Bush activist Cindy Sheehan now says other mothers of those slain in the conflict whose views oppose her own are "brainwashed." "I have been silent on the Gold Star Moms who still support [President Bush] and his war by saying that they deserve the right to their opinions because they are in as much pain as I am. I would challenge them, though, at this point to start thinking for themselves," Sheehan said. "How can these moms who still support George Bush and his insane war in Iraq...

    Cindy Sheehan, whose son Casey was killed in Iraq, and who's been intermittently camped outside President Bush's ranch in Texas demanding to meet with him for a second time, has been hailed as the public face of the antiwar movement. Maureen Dowd of the New York Times has declared that Sheehan's moral authority is "absolute." So in the interest of more fully tapping that moral authority, here's a collection of Sheehan quotes: "Thank God for the Internet, or we wouldn't know anything, and we would already be a fascist state." "Our government is run by one party, every level, and...
  • Warning from Gore on future -- Global warming called an emergency

    When former Vice President Al Gore gave a long list of doom-and- gloom statistics Saturday about global warming -- warning people that rising sea levels could drown out parts of Florida, Louisiana and Manhattan -- there were no loud gasps or headshakes of disbelief from a roomful of Bay Area environmentalists. At the World Environment Day conference in San Francisco -- a five-day U. N. gathering dedicated to adopting sound environmental practices for urban centers -- he was preaching to the choir. "To an audience like this, Al Gore needs little introduction," Randy Hayes, founder of Rainforest Action Network, told...
  • Communism and human nature (Bolshie Mod sez, Arise ye kittens of the earth!)

    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

    this site is whacked. The whole website claims to oppose somthing with one side of it's mouth and then goes around supporting basically the same thing. You all claim to oppose Islam but advocate the same things they do. You even worship the same god they do. You claim to support free speech and religious liberty but demand that the seperation of church and state that has protected religious freedom be torn down and anyone who says anything critical about Bush, Rush or any so called conservative thrown out. You claim to oppose media biased but are far more biased...

    Carville: Democrats Should Resist Bush's 'Dangerous Second-Term Agenda' By Jimmy Moore Talon News January 14, 2005 Democratic strategist James Carville is asking for a commitment from one million activists to "stand strong in the face of Republican" initiatives in 2005 to counter President George W. Bush's "bullying political tactics and his dangerous second-term agenda." In an e-mail to Democratic supporters on Thursday, Carville said he is looking at this new year and decided to have "a fighting spirit" to counter the "Republicans' malarkey." Carville said Republicans want people to think the recent presidential election was about a mandate from the...

    PITTSBURGH Teresa Heinz Kerry joked about being a loose cannon when she campaigned for her husband today at a Pittsburgh library.

"But when they do, watch out!" -- she joked.Heinz Kerry's appearance at the library, and a get-out-the-vote rally at Penn State's main campus tonight will wrap up a two-week swing through Pennsylvania for Senator John Kerry's wife.The tour wrapped up just as polls released by Quinnipiac (kwin-uh-PEE'-ak_ University and A-B-C News show that President George W.

    Freed Israeli nuclear spy Mordechai Vanunu said in an interview published today that Israel was behind the 1963 assassination of U.S. President John F. Kennedy, prompting some Israeli officials to hope aloud the far-fetched comments will hurt Vanunu's credibility. Vanunu, a former nuclear technician who was recently released from Israeli prison after serving an 18-year sentence for exposing Israel's nuclear program at Dimona to Britain's Sunday Times, has been barred from leaving the country, talking to the media or meeting with foreigners. But the London-based al-Hayat newspaper published an interview yesterday it claims is the first Vanunu has given, in...
