    A large part of the greatness of this Country has always been our ability, and willingness, to "see" the other guy's point of view. To be fair and just and considerate. From our politics to education, from our finance sectors to our industries, from our Congressional districts all the way down to the placement of our bus stops in our Cities and Towns. Words like fair, equal, good of the people, needs of the Country.. have always been used to help us make our decisions, and describe us and our actions. We have always been able to find and make...

    WASHINGTON - The American Civil Liberties Union is seeking information from the FBI on why bureau task forces set up to combat terrorism also looked into anti-war, animal rights and environmental groups. Dozens of organizations have been subjected to scrutiny, according to the ACLU, which was filing Freedom of Information Act requests with the FBI on Thursday to try to find out why. "We think it's clear that the public is interested in the possible return of FBI spying on political and religious groups," said Ann Beeson, the ACLU's associate legal counsel. The FBI denies singling out individuals or groups...

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer ^ | 26 November 2004 | Kery Murakami
    In downtown Seattle, they light a big Christmas tree for the holidays. But in Fremont, they're going to light up -- what else? -- the big statue of Vladimir Lenin. Lenin will be lighted at 5 p.m. Dec. 3 at the corner of Fremont Place North and North 36th Street. (It's the intersection with the big statue of Lenin.) The monument will be bedecked with garland and lights -- and probably not just red ones. It will be the first time the 18-foot bronze statue has been lighted since it came to the Center of the Universe in 1995 by...
  • NYP Book Review: AN 'INNOCENT' SOVIET SPY re: ALGER HISS'S LOOKING-GLASS WAR (LIFE OF A SOVIET SPY)

    New York Post ^ | November 14, 2004 | Eris Fettmann
    ...[T]here is no greater Cold War icon than Alger Hiss, the once high-ranking State Department official who went to prison for denying that he'd passed government secrets to the Soviet Union. Nearly 60 years after he was exposed before Congress by Whittaker Chambers, a communist underground operative who later became a senior editor at Time magazine, belief in Hiss' complete innocence remains an article of faith for the political left. For anti-communists, Hiss remains the prime example of how the Kremlin infiltrated the highest ranks of the U.S. government.... Over the years, Davis remained unpersuaded by new evidence of Hiss'...
  • Cheney says if Kerry had been president, Soviet Union likely would still exist

    The Soviet Union might still exist and Saddam Hussein might control the Persian Gulf and possess nuclear weapons had Democrat John Kerry been president when the United States faced those regimes, Vice President Dick Cheney said Saturday. "I think it's a good thing that he wasn't in charge," Cheney said. Kerry asserted Friday that had he been president during the war in Afghanistan, terrorist leader Osama bin Laden would be in captivity or dead. The Democratic nominee has long criticized President Bush for abandoning the pursuit of the alleged mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks so that U.S....

    HAVANA, Cuba (CNN) -- President Fidel Castro fell, possibly breaking his leg, after giving a graduation speech Wednesday in the central Cuban city of Santa Clara. Sending a buzz through the crowd, the 78-year-old leader appeared to trip as he was walking away from the podium. In an effort to calm the crowd, Castro took the microphone after a few minutes, saying: "Just so that there won't be any speculation, it seems that I broke my knee." He apologized for any concerns he may have caused for those who care about him and then joked how his spill was likely...

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Christine Iverson 202-863-8614 Washington, DC--The list of foreign leaders supporting John Kerry became slightly less mysterious today when the Associated Press reported that the head of the communist movement in Nicaragua and Sandinista Leader Tomas Borge announced his support for John Kerry."The cloud of mystery surrounding John Kerry's support by foreign leaders lifted a little over the weekend. Since Senator Kerry won't tell us who they are we will continue to monitor New York's fine dining establishments hoping to glean some insight into the other still-mysterious foreign leaders supporting John Kerry," said RNC Communications Director Jim...

    You know things are getting bad when a conference sponsored by seemingly mainstream groups like the Ocean Conservancy and the Pew Charitable Trusts includes a panel on "direct action" featuring the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society's "Captain" Paul Watson. An open promoter of violence, Watson declares there's "nothing wrong with being a terrorist, as long as you win." Yesterday he told the self-described "seaweed rebels" at the conference on ocean health: "We can no longer afford to eat any seafood." After announcing that Sea Shepherd is "proudly a pirate organization," Watson insisted: ... we have got to cease and desist and...

    Already praised by the Communist Party USA and the Revolutionary Communist Party, Michael Moore's hit film "Fahrenheit 9/11" has a new honor – great notices in the today's edition of the Socialist Worker, the newspaper of the International Socialist Organization. "Millions upon millions of people in the U.S. are terrified at what George W. Bush has in store for them if he wins another four years in the White House," the story reads. "This is the secret of the success of Michael Moore’s 'Fahrenheit 9/11' – a documentary film that exposes the crimes of the Bush presidency, from the war...

    The Sunday Telegraph (UK) ^ | July 4, 2004 | By Kevin Myers
    It would be simply impossible to gather from all the gushing press coverage last week about Corin Redgrave's Lear at Stratford what a truly terrifying influence he had in British theatrical circles for 20 years or more. As the most powerful member of the Trotskyite Workers Revolutionary Party within the actors union, Equity, he helped create political cells throughout the acting profession. Central to this was the nature of the WRP: it was less a conventional political movement than a fully-fledged cult, which monopolised the time, energy and financial resources of its members. At one level, the WRP was plain...

    Oscar Honors a Nazi March 1, 2004 Hitler’s favorite propagandist has finally been rehabilitated. At Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony, Hollywood gave Leni Riefenstahl its kosher seal of approval. As it does every year, the Oscars ceremony paid homage and tribute to all of the great actors, directors, composers, and other showbiz types who passed on in the previous year. But along with recently deceased legends like Bob Hope, Gregory Peck, Donald O’Connor, Robert Stack, Buddy Hackett -- and even John Ritter, Ms. Riefenstahl was so honored. Incredibly, the Hollywood audience in attendance gave loud applause in response to the televised...

    If you're like me, that means you've locked yourself inside your home all day in a bid to avoid roving parades of indigenous lesbian organic women farmers burning McDonald's flags while singing folk songs berating the imperialist economy. Painful herstory demonstrations and protest marches aside, though, you would think that the symbolic day would at least be an opportunity for the world's feminists and human rights advocates to highlight some of the real oppression that women face--especially in Islamic countries where burkas and headscarves are still the order of the day. But you would be quite wrong. Instead of using...

    Hollywood's Longest Blacklist By David Horowitz FrontPageMagazine.com | February 10, 1997 At a time when its latest heroes are a fascist (Eva Peron) and a misogynist (Larry Flynt), it is perhaps not surprising that Hollywood is experiencing a crisis of conscience in finding a place in its heart for a patriot like Elia Kazan. Last month, the Hollywood establishment, in the form of the American Film Institute and the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, denied Kazan a lifetime achievement award, thereby continuing to shun one of its most accomplished artists. Even the subsequent defenses of the filmmaker that appeared in...

Now the sorry Republicans are trashing Kerry for being friends with Jane Fonda. Kerry could care less what you clowns think of him.

Another 88 students were abducted from a school in Pujyatala village in Achham district, 360 kilometres west of Kathmandu on Friday, a village official said.
