    On September 23, Dinesh DíSouza will appear before a federal judge in Manhattan to learn whether he will do jail time for violating campaign-finance law. (He pleaded guilty earlier this year to charges of funneling $20,000 to a friendís Senate campaign via straw donors.) It will be the latest turn in a remarkable life that has embodiedóperhaps more than any otheróthe passions and commitments of the modern conservative movement. DíSouza leapt to prominence during his student days as editor of The Dartmouth Review, then emerging as a first-read for pro-Reagan provocation. Those were heady times for the youth corps of...

    Got into a discussion with a libtard family member recently. Here is the gist of what I was trying to drill into his dense liberal head. The more laws one has the harder it is to enforce all the laws equally therefore laws will not be enforced and this will lead to selective enforcement, selective enforcement leads to tyranny, tyranny will lead to revolution which most often leads to even more tyranny... As he was trying to tell me that all the Tea Party wants to do is "Get rid of all laws"... I kept trying to re-iterate that if...

    David Gregory walks free while Iraq vet was jailedItís been more than a week since police in Washington, D.C., opened an investigation into NBCís David Gregoryís possession of a ďhigh-capacity magazineĒ thatís prohibited in the District on on national TV. Metropolitan Police Chief Cathy L. Lanierís spokesman refused Monday to respond to whether Mr. Gregory had even been interviewed yet. This is a rather curious departure for a city that has been ruthless in enforcing this particular firearms statute against law-abiding citizens who made an honest mistake. In July, The Washington Times highlighted the plight of former Army Spc. Adam...

    My fellow Americans, who are "your people"? I ask because US Attorney General Eric Holder, who is black, used the phrase "my people" in congressional testimony this week. It was an unmistakably color-coded and exclusionary reference intended to deflect criticism of the Obama Justice Department's selective enforcement policies. It backfired. In pandering to identity politics and exacerbating race consciousness, Holder has given the rest of us an opportunity to stand up, identify "our people" and show the liberal poseurs what post-racialism really looks like. Herman Cain is my people. I've never met him, but we are kin because we are...

    The prostitution ring that ensnared New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer stunned officers at SAPD. For some, the big surprise wasn't that a federal wiretap captured a governor arranging to meet a call girl. No, the shock was how much prostitutes were charging: $1,000 to $5,500 per hour. "That's crazy," one cop said. "Who could afford that?" Court papers say a number of wealthy men met with Emperor's Club prostitutes in New York, Washington, London, Paris, Miami, and Los Angeles. Spitzer, an affidavit says, paid $4,300 in cash. "Amazing," said a second officer. "Makes you wonder what the girl did in...

    Topeka, KS (LifeNews.com) -- Kansas Attorney General Paul Morrison, who has been under fire from pro-life groups for dragging his feet on a probe into potentially illegal abortions at Planned Parenthood dropped all of the charges. He dropped some of the charges against Wichita late-term abortion practitioner George Tiller but kept others. The pro-life group Kansans for Life is disappointed and worries that political games may have been played. "Planned Parenthood in Overland Park was the site of political phone banking and letter stuffing (that was surely designed to help Paul Morrison defeat Phill Kline) on multiple dates prior to...

    CHRISTIAN PASTORS TAKEN TO COURT TO SILENCE CRITICISM OF ISLAM AUSTRALIA. Two Christian pastors have been taken to court by the Islamic Council of Victoria and three Australian Muslims after making critical statements about the Islamic faith on a website and at a seminar for Christians held in March last year. A complaint of religious vilification was made against the two Christian pastors, Danny Nalliah and Daniel Scot. The complaint deals with many issues, such as the nature of jihad, aspirations of Muslims in the west, and the connection between the laws of jihad and the treatment of non-Muslims under...

    Judge gives Limbaugh medical records to investigators By JILL BARTON Associated Press Writer July 06, 2005 5:42PM A judge Wednesday gave some of Rush Limbaugh's medical records to prosecutors, allowing their long-stalled investigation into whether the conservative commentator illegally purchased painkillers to move forward. Circuit Court Judge Thomas Barkdull III also returned some of Limbaugh's records to his attorney, Roy Black. Black had argued that the judge should limit the records prosecutors can review because they contain privileged, even embarrassing, details about medical procedures, symptoms and other issues that were unrelated to the criminal investigation. After a hearing on Wednesday,...
