  • Rewriting History with The Butler

    Progressive liberals can never win in the arena of ideas so they choose to fight in a different battleground, popular culture. Why deal with pesky facts that your ideology has never worked and only led to misery and death for millions of people? To the progressive mind, if you can't beat your enemy, then change the very fabric of his culture. By doing so, you'll lose many a battle, but you'll win the war. This is why progressives have taken over Hollywood and education. Sadly, many people today gain their knowledge through tv, movies, and the internet. True education has...

    Back in the spring of 2011, House Republicans had refused to raise the nation’s debt ceiling unless the president first conceded to massive spending cuts—a gratuitous game of chicken that put the global economy at risk and defied decades of bipartisan Washington tradition. At the time, many Democrats, including Bill Clinton, were urging Obama to go it alone. I’d raise the debt ceiling on my own, “without hesitation,” Clinton told a reporter. “[I’d] force the courts to stop me.” But the White House insisted that unilateral action was “not an option.” Instead, Obama spent 44 days trying to forge a...

    Since it now appears that the first two presidential debates did very much indeed have a resounding effect on the state of the race, Team O can’t afford to take any chances with Monday’s foreign-policy debate. Unfortunately, the Obama administration’s narrative on the president’s foreign-policy record has long been that all of those drone strikes and the death of Osama bin Laden have vastly deteriorated the strength and coordination of terrorism in the Middle East, and the attacks on the consulate in Benghazi and the death of four Americans on the eleventh anniversary of 9/11 put something of a damper...

    Think. Candy Crowley and Obama colluded in the debate. It's obvious. How would Obama know to tell her to "Get the transcript!" unless they had planned a response ahead of time on the Benghazi issue? Then, Crowley enabled Obama's lie about the topic and cut Romney off. The next set of questions that must be asked must deal with the supervisors who knew that the collusion took place prior to the debate. Candy Crowley did not have the authority to use her firm's equipment to video conference with the Obama camp about debate topics/answers (had to have video conferenced to...

    At the Maldives' National Museum, smashed Buddhist statues are testament to the rise of Islamic extremism and Taliban-style intolerance in a country famous as a laid-back holiday destination. On Tuesday, as protesters backed by mutinous police toppled president Mohamed Nasheed, a handful of men stormed the Chinese-built museum and destroyed its display of priceless artefacts from the nation's pre-Islamic era. "They have effectively erased all evidence of our Buddhist past," a senior museum official told AFP at the now shuttered building in the capital Male, asking not to be named out of fear for his own safety. "We lost all...

    To understand John Locke one has to understand what was going on internationally. He was born in an era of ascendant Islam. On the eve of Locke’s birth the Ottomans Murad IV (r. 1623-40) was the ruler of the Ottomans. As a young man Locke may have heard stories about the reign of Sultan Ibrahim (r. 1640-48). But Locke’s major years saw Mehmed IV (January 2, 1642 – January 6, 1693) reigning a largest Ottoman empire. In 1658 Greek mainland and islands fall under the control of the Ottoman Sultan. The Turks were knocking on the gages of Vienna in...

    t's an article of faith for the secular and Religious Left that Western civilization is a pox upon the planet. According to this not-so-new mythology, the earth and its indigenous peoples were essentially good. But European civilization, corrupted by Christian Constaninianism, injected corruption, conquest and genocide into largely pristine cultures. In 1990, the National Council of Churches infamously denounced the impending quincentennial of Christopher Columbus' "invasion" of America, which brought only "slavery, genocide, theft and exploitation." In earlier years, the church council, whose chief denominations had helped found the United States, had celebrated American democracy. But the NCC's ideologues, like...

The museum, which draws millions of visitors, has been closed for more than two years for an $85 million facelift. It will reopen to the public Friday with a three-day festival. Once overlooked by some visitors as it hung near the museum entrance, the nearly 200-year-old flag that inspired the words of the national anthem is now the centerpiece of the reinvented museum.

    Today is the publication date of the new edition of his book Fugitive Days, and now that the election is over, Ayers has chosen to speak out in his own defense in the pages of a democratic socialist newsweekly, In These Times. By choosing this vehicle, Ayers is skillfully engaging in his own sanitized rewriting of history. His effort is to paint himself as just another honest dissenter, a man whose valiant socialist principles have caused the media to unfairly demonize him as a terrorist. All he did in his memoir, he writes, is to go back to those “exhilarating...

For me, at the end of the evening, looking at live shots of the throngs in Chicago's Grant Park, I flashed back to 1960 and how it felt, as a child, to see that the grown-ups had elected a Catholic president. I can't say we stood taller—we were Irish, we already stood tall—but yes, there was a wave of feeling: "What a country," "What a development!" The other day, when...

We do want to do it carefully.” This is obscene. This “mess”, as Congressman Frank so eloquently put it, is the fault of government pure and simple. And, it is the personal fault of Barney Frank.

In the video clip, translated by The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), the grandfather of a bunny says, "We used to live in the most beautiful place in Palestine…. This place was called Tel Al-Rabi, but the Zionists and Jews Hebraicized the name to Tel Aviv…. I have documents and proof. I have all the papers here. The documents...

    Whenever western governments mention weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and Muslims in the same breath, the western media immediately breaks into wild frenzy warning its people that a catastrophic event of epic proportions is about to unfold. Old European fables of Muslims spreading Islam by the sword are reinvented to convey the impression that Muslims are extremely dangerous, highly irresponsible and pay scant regard to human life. Hence the mantra of disarming Muslim countries of WMD has become the rallying cry of the West directed against the Muslim world. In some cases the arguments are extended to justify the West’s...

    With the Democrats' full-throated moralizing of late, I'm almost tempted to vote for them — although perhaps "full-throated" is the wrong phrase to use with regard to Democrats and sex scandals. The sudden emergence of the Swift Butt Veterans for Truth demonstrates that the Democrats would prefer to talk about anything other than national security. Unfortunately for them, the psychotic Kim Jong Il seems to be setting off nukes, raising the embarrassing issue of the Clinton administration's 1994 "peace" deal with North Korea. At least with former Rep. Mark Foley, you could say the Democrats' hypocritical grandstanding was just politics....

    IT IS THE prerogative of former presidents to write self-serving memoirs casting themselves in heroic terms. We don't begrudge Bill Clinton, who presided over an administration of significant accomplishments in many areas, a book-length (or even a two-book-length) highlighting of the ups, and a breezing-over of the downs, of his presidency. Yet Mr. Clinton's new book, "My Life," is also part of a long effort on its author's part to deny, and not just breeze over, his profound disrespect for the law when it inconvenienced him. In Mr. Clinton's alternate universe, in which many Democrats have also decided to live,...

    Will John Kerry ask Hillary Clinton to be his running mate? If not and Kerry loses, will Hillary run for President in 2008? And if Kerry wins this November (with or without Hillary on the ticket), will she run in 2012? Dick Morris, political consultant and New York Post columnist, speculates on all those possibilities in his new best-seller, Rewriting History (Regan Books, $24.95). Morris' book could easily be dismissed as, well, just another political screed hatched during an election year to gain attention -- which on one level it certainly is. Most of its 265 pages of text are...

    Just two weeks after its release, "Rewriting History" - Dick Morris' insider account refuting Hillary Clinton's autobiography "Living History" - has hit the New York Times bestseller list, debuting next week at No. 7. The success of "Rewriting History" defies conventional wisdom. It hasn't received the deluge of gushing press coverage that greeted, for instance, former Iraq ambassador Joe Wilson's book "The Politics of Truth," which has been touted in big media venues like "Meet the Press" and "Dateline," as well as CNN's "Larry King Live" and Comedy Central's "The Daily Show." Still, while publicity for Morris' book has been...
  • Morris: Hillary Paranoid about Secret Service

    New York Sen. Hillary Clinton distrusts the Secret Service so much that she once accused her bodyguards of "hating" her and her husband, longtime Clinton advisor Dick Morris reveals in his new book "Rewriting History." "They hate us," she railed according to Morris, after the Secret Service warned that a 1996 trip to Pittsburgh would require shutting down the railroad there for security reasons. "[They] will shut down the entire Eastern Seaboard just to embarrass us if we give them the excuse," the then first lady complained. "They're mainly Republicans," she raged. "They always take the most extreme option...

    [Hillary] has a disturbing tendency to concoct carefully revised "facts" about her past, her persona, her circumstances, and her experiences--in other words, she has a real problem telling the truth. Sometimes her deceptions are silly. At other times, they are deeply pernicious. But even the fluffier fabrications send us a warning not to trust her. Take an apparently innocuous example: her nutty claim that her mother named her after Sir Edmund Hillary, the first man to climb Mount Everest. Meeting Sir Edmund by chance at the Katmandu airport, Hillary apparently made up the story on the spot, telling reporters she...

    In her own book, "Living History," Hillary Clinton warmly praises Susan McDougal, the Whitewater witness who saved her co-presidency by going to the slammer rather than telling what she knew about the Clintons' fraudulent land deal. But in "Rewriting History," Dick Morris reveals that Hillary had a different opinion of McDougal behind the scenes. Before it was clear that Susan had decided to stonewall prosecutors, Morris says Hillary warned him about her former Whitewater partner. "She is such a liar. She worked for [the famous conductor] Zubin Mehta and stole his silver. She's crazy, unstable and totally dishonest. You can't...

    "An investigation, based on newly released documents, into President Truman's controversial decision to drop the A-bomb. Concludes that the real reason the U.S. dropped the bomb was to intimidate the Soviet Union." Several 'experts' explained that dropping the A-bombs on Japan were unnecessary [there were no dissenting points of view aired]. The announcer -- bearing an English accent -- explained that the reasons that Truman decided to bomb Hiroshima and Nagasaki were: 1. A raving desire for revenge on the part of the American people. 2. To use the opportunity to 'experiment' the new weapon on an expendable population. 3....

    In his new book "Rewriting History," longtime aide to Bill and Hillary Clinton, Dick Morris reveals that he's guarded a secret about the Whitewater scandal for nearly a decade that could have led to Clinton's removal from office. "What I was not talking about and have not for eight years is an incident that took place in 1996," he told Fox News Channel's "Hannity & Colmes" on Tuesday. Morris alleged that Clinton improperly influenced U.S. District Court Judge Henry Woods to dismiss Whitewater charges against then-Arkansas Gov. Jim Guy Tucker, who had threatened to go public about Hillary's involvement in...

    May 2, 2004 -- Political adviser DICK MORRIS was a first-hand witness to the two faces of Hillary Rodham Clinton during his tenure as Bill Clinton's confidante. In his new book, "Rewriting History," he offers a rebuttal to the New York senator's best-selling autobiography, showing the Hillary he knows - warts and all. LIKE the moon, she shows us the same face each time we see her. Sometimes, she displays more, sometimes less of her visage, but always it is the same carefully presented persona: friendly, open, giggly, practical, family-oriented, caring, thoughtful, unflappable, serious, balanced and moderate.

    Scholar to scrutinize JFK presidency By BETSY COHEN of the Missoulian Was John F. Kennedy really a great president? Allen Matusow, a scholar of U.S. presidents, will give his answer Monday night in the next installment of the University of Montana's President's Lecture Series. Matusow will discuss Kennedy's tenure in office, his political legacy and recently released documents that shed more light on his presidency. Although it has been 40 years since Kennedy was assassinated, there has been no president - no person - in the past 50 years who has grabbed the public's attention and held it like John...
