    Fifty years ago today, the life work of Alger Hiss came to fruition. Hiss, a US State Department official, served the United Nations as its acting Secretary General during its founding conference in the spring of 1945. On October 24, 1945 the United Nations Charter became effective as a majority of the countries that had signed it ratified their signatures. Several years later, Hiss went to a federal penitentiary for committing perjury when testifying that he was not a Soviet agent. His personal career was over, but his most important work, the United Nations, lived on. Globalists everywhere are today...

    BANGKOK, Thailand - A Russian dubbed the "Merchant of Death" for allegedly supplying weapons to Africa's bloody conflicts over power and diamonds was arrested Thursday in Thailand on suspicion of conspiring to smuggle guns to Colombia's leftist rebels. Viktor Bout, 41, whose dealings reportedly inspired a 2005 movie about the illicit arms trade, was arrested at U.S. request in his hotel room in Bangkok, said police Lt. Gen. Pongpat Chayapan. Bout had eluded arrest for years and was finally seized after a four-month sting organized by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. In New York, federal authorities unsealed a criminal complaint...

    Paying for their promises Next governor's programs will carry a gigantic cost By John Cheves HERALD-LEADER STAFF WRITER FRANKFORT - There's nothing wrong with Kentucky that a billion dollars couldn't fix. That's the unspoken message behind the campaign promises of Republican Ernie Fletcher and Democrat Ben Chandler, self-described fiscal conservatives running for governor in Tuesday's election. The Herald-Leader added up their promises -- including higher pay for teachers, more tax breaks for businesses and safer streets -- and estimated the price. Fletcher would need $495 million in his first year to "Restore Hope." Chandler would need $816 million to put...

    'From the folks who brought you preemptive war, here comes preemptive peace." So writes American Prospect editor-at-large Harold Meyerson, in a Washington Post op-ed warning of the perils the US will soon face in Iraq. "The decision to run postwar Iraq as an adjunct of the Defense Department may prove even more fateful than the decision to go to war... It fairly begs the world to view us as occupiers rather than nation-builders." Plenty more blood may yet be shed before the US and UK declare victory in Iraq. Yet just as dire forecasts were made of a conflict that...
