    If the questionable legal charges levied against Dinesh DSouza by Obamas Justice Department for exceeding campaign finance laws were to quiet his criticism of the President, it is not working. Yet, one gathers from DSouza that he sees these charges as one more of the shameless ways this President is using the instruments of the state to attack his critics. With a new book, America: Imagine a World Without Her and a movie, America, coming on July 2, DSouza is a man with a message and he is on fire. His movie 2016 brought in 8 million viewers. His new...

    Full Headline = Sign of National Resentment for the American Way of Life: Kristof Angry About Private Generators During Sandy RUSH: Now, over the weekend, a columnist in the New York Times by the name of Nicholas Kristof wrote a piece. He's all upset about the electrical grid failing in the Northeast during Hurricane Sandy. But that's not what made him mad. What made him mad was the reliance that some people had on private generators. He was upset about that, that some people had them and other people didn't. Here's the short version, according to David French at National...

    Murder is the opposite of art: destructive, impoverishing, nihilistic. To discuss the act of a killer as if it had some relevance to a work of culture is to usher the age-old enemy of mankind into one of his citadels. So I will pass over the massacre in an Aurora, Colo., theater in a silence respectful toward its victims. But the film that was playing in that theater"The Dark Knight Rises"deserves to be loudly celebrated as a masterful and stunningly honest work of Western popular culture.

    The American Spectator ^ | 1/18/11 | Hal G. P. Colebach
    In the media frenzy surrounding Tucson, a potentially infinitely more significant event has been almost ignored. Obama has set the seal on his anti-British caste of mind by declaring that France is America's "greatest ally," and that "We don't have a stronger friend and stronger ally than Nicolas Sarkozy, and the French people." The first time I read this, I had trouble believing he was capable of such stupidity. To insult Britain so at this time (following up his earlier insult of returning the bust of Winston Churchill) is matches-in-the-powder-magazine stuff. For one thing, Britain has 10,000 troops in Afghanistan,...

    ZABUL PROVINCE, AFGHANISTAN -- Sitting on the dusty flightline at Forward Op erating Base Lagman in the Afghan hinterlands, what could make better leisure reading than the November issue of Inspire -- the English-language magazine of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula? The lavishly illustrated, 23-page PDF, is a "special issue" devoted to the attempted toner-cartridge bombings via UPS deliveries from Yemen. Besides a page taunting Yemen's president, the issue focuses on how the explosives were prepared, how difficult they are to detect and how economically the plot was accomplished. Of course, none of the bombs mailed to out-of-date addresses...

    In 1958, an English sociologist and Labour politician named Michael Young imagined a future in which the British establishment dissolved itself, abolished all forms of hereditary power, and created instead a meritocracy (a word Young invented) based on IQ. In Young's fable, the academically talented working class happily join the elite. But the less talented resent them even more than they did the old dukes and duchesses. By 2034, this resentment leads to the creation of a violent populist revolution, which sweeps the meritocracy away.To some, this story has always seemed like a warning to the United States. In 1972,...

    If you write a column, you get a lot of e-mail. Sometimes, especially in a political season, it's possible to discern from it certain emerging themes the comeback of old convictions, for instance, or the rise of new concerns. Let me tell you something I'm hearing, in different ways and different words. The coming rebellion in the voting booth is not only about the economic impact of spending, debt and deficits on America's future. It's also to some degree about the feared impact of all those things on the character of the American people. There is a real fear...

    The Olympics will not be held in Chicago. So has Obama failed Chicago? Not really: hosting the Olympics is a decidedly mixed blessing and this will be forgotten soon. Obama, however, has failed black America, and that failure may linger for a long time. The election of a black president, all other things being equal, is a good sign in American politics. All things, though, were not equal in the case of Barack Obama. He was not and is not wedded to the grand principles of American greatness. The blessings of citizenship are squandered on Barack Obama, just as the...

    The popular meme circulating throughout the unbiased media yesterday was: The original Tea Party was about taxation without representation but Americans HAVE representation and Republicans are just mad because they lost. The more I twist that in my head, the more absurd it sounds. What theyre really saying is: you are only allowed representation in government if youre the majority. Funny how that didnt seem to be the case in California when Prop. 8 passed. I dont remember any snide reporter telling a disappointed same-sex couple Hey, you lost, get over it. In fact, their protests have been covered by...

    Former White House adviser Karl Rove's bare-knuckled response to recent statements by Vice President Joe Biden has brought into public view a growing resentment on the part of Bush administration veterans over what they regard as repeated and unwarranted slams from the Obama White House. The current president and his team are being "gratuitous, slightly petty, and slightly obsessive in blaming Bush for things," one former White House adviser told me. "Completely gratuitous," said another. "Unfair," said a third. The hard feelings surfaced after an April 7 interview on CNN in which Biden recounted a visit with George W. Bush....

    Resentment is like taking poison and waiting for the other guy to die. The obit says he died because of the strain "of living in this unjust country. An avid atheist, he studied the bible and religion with more fervor than most Christians. He had strong political opinions and followed Amy Goodmans radio broadcast Democracy Now. Alas the stolen election of 2000 and living with right-winged Americans finally brought him to his early demise. Stress from living in this unjust country brought about several heart attacks rendering him disabled. But I expect its more what Will Smith said to his...

For many, the 3 million inhabitant city capital of Gansu Province is still a frontier town, and while the Games influence is hard to miss in the city center with flags on mass display in shops and cars, hardly a trace of the Olympics can be found in the citys Muslim quarters, where minarets tower over the roofs....

    HOTAN, China - There was no sign of dissent in the bazaar, where men wove through the crowd on motorcycles with freshly butchered sheep draped behind them. But a Muslim merchant pinched his lips together with his fingers to show he could not talk freely. "The Chinese are too bad, really bad," said Hama, who added that the Chinese had broken up a protest of about 200 people last month. He put his wrists together as if handcuffed. "I can't say more or I'll get arrested." As China grapples with protests in Tibet, it also faces unrest on its Central...

Whenever we see 'that kid', we get mad. When 'Great Leader' (Kim Il-sung) was alive, we received some gifts, free school uniforms, and food rations.

(story) "The so-called 'living-wage' ordinance that would have required mega-retailers here to pay their workers higher wages was successfully turned back Wednesday as supporters on the City Council could not muster enough votes to override Mayor Richard Daley's veto. Daley, who vetoed the ordinance this week saying it would cost the city jobs and hurt people who need those jobs the most, was able to convince enough aldermen who voted in favor of the ordinance in July...

    GRINNELL, Iowa - Sen. John McCain (news, bio, voting record) said Tuesday there is "lingering resentment" among some Republicans because of his primary fight in 2000 with George W. Bush. Those feelings may complicate his decision whether to seek the presidential nomination for 2008, said McCain, R-Ariz. "If I run, and we'll decide that early next year, there's a lot of work to do," McCain said as he began a two-day visit to Iowa, which traditionally holds leadoff caucuses in January of presidential election years. "Here in Iowa there are parts of the party where there's still lingering resentment over...

    China's poor pose threat to wealthy future By Chris Bowlby Analysis, Radio 4 Look at China from a distance, and those huge new skyscrapers in places like Shanghai may dominate the view. They symbolise rapid recent growth, glitzy cities and factories flooding the world with consumer goods. Look beyond, however, and another China comes into focus - where hundreds of millions still live in poverty, and where a communist government struggles with the contradictions of running a capitalist economy. Last week the Chinese premier, Wen Jiabao, warned the National People's congress in Beijing of "deep-seated conflicts" and promised to spend...

    MEXICO CITY (AP) - Hundreds of people lined up at Mexico City's main post office on Friday, some waiting hours to buy postage stamps featuring a black comic book character that U.S. leaders have called racist. The series of five stamps released Wednesday depicts the Memin Pinguin character, a hapless boy drawn with exaggerated features, thick lips and wide-open eyes. His appearance, speech and mannerisms are the subject of kidding by white characters in the comic book, which started in the 1940s and is still published in Mexico. The stamps have become a symbol of resentment that the United States...
