    Visit the Museo de la Revolución in central Havana, and two things about the museum’s photo displays will immediately capture your attention. First, it’s clear that the battle to control Cuba in the late 1950s was ultimately won by the cool guys. Young, bearded and ruggedly handsome, the rebel warriors of Fidel Castro’s 26th of July Movement look like Beat hipsters and rock stars—Fidel tall and imposing in his fatigues; Camillo Cienfuegos grinning under his broad-brimmed cowboy hat; Ernesto “Che” Guevara looking smolderingly photogenic in his black beret. By contrast, the U.S.-backed dictator Fulgencio Batista and his cronies look...

    In New York, U.S. District Judge Alvin Hellerstein has ordered the release of eight more grand jury transcripts from the famous 1951 spy case that led to the conviction of the husband and wife pro-Soviet spy team of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg. Reuters reports this story as if there is some cloud of doubt still hanging over the Rosenberg's conviction despite that their guilt is no longer debatable. Yet here is Reuters giving cover to those who stubbornly wish to cast doubt on the U.S. prosecution of the Rosenbergs. It also gives Reuters and U.S. detractors the opportunity once again...

    Perhaps the most reviled figure in American history is Senator Joseph McCarthy. "McCarthyism" has become the term of choice for false, destructive accusations. Yet a new book shows that Senator McCarthy was right in his allegations. Blacklisted By History: The Untold Story of Senator Joseph McCarthy and His Fight Against America's Enemies by M. Stanton Evans, chairman of the Education and Research Institute, shows that McCarthy was right about there being significant communist infiltration in government, his investigative methods were careful, thorough and of the highest standard, and his adversaries were the ones who practiced so-called "McCarthyism." It is McCarthy,...

    In a July 17 story, Jim VandeHei and Mike Allen of the Washington Post had to admit, in recapping White House statements about the Valerie Plame case, that White House spokesman Scott McClellan was usually careful to disavow involvement "in any illegal leak, though his public statements clearly left an impression of a White House aloof to the affair." This is the key to understanding White House statements about the case and the reported White House role. If you read the transcripts of McClellan's briefings, it is clear that McClellan had denied a White House role in a criminal disclosure...

    Hosts of ABC's "The View" Gang Up on Giuliani for Backing Bush Joy Behar ridiculed Giuliani for claiming that the first thing he said after the 9/11 attacks was "thank God" George W. Bush "was our President" and she insisted that "of course" Al Gore would have been just as "tough" on terrorism. Former CBS News correspondent Meredith Vieira, who participated Sunday in an anti-Bush march, seemed similarly ignorant, scolding Giuliani: "The implication is that if you disagree, I think, with the administration that somehow you are on the side of the terrorists.

    There is a  whine issuing from the political left these days that opponents of the Iraq war are unfairly characterized as “unpatriotic.” In our view this whine is a case of guilt and projection. We are not acquainted with any supporters the war who characterize all their critics as “unpatriotic.” We certainly don’t. But we do judge critics of the war on their merits and we are of the opinion that not all criticisms are alike. Consider those like Michael Moore who side with America’s enemies and promote their victory – and our defeat. These are not "critics" of America. They are enemies...

    For America's multimillion-dollar Superman industry, it's a serious problem. This is a guy who's from outer space — he was born on the planet Krypton, let's not forget — but he's also from another time. He debuted in the 1930s, when Americans liked their heroes like they liked their steaks: tough, thick and all-American. Nowadays we prefer our heroes dark and flawed and tragic. Look at the Punisher (wife and kids dead), or Hellboy (born a demon), or Spider-Man (secretly a nerd). Look at Batman: his parents were killed in front of him, and he dresses like a Cure fan....

A junior realist, I tended to read, instead, the British-produced, four-times-a-month Commando comics, which were generally set during the Second World War. Commando — whose fabulous titles included Hun Bait, Iron-Cross Yankee, Ghost Stuka, and the unforgettable Deserters Deserve Death! — abjured those pathetic ads one saw in...

The bullets always were fired at night, but the threats, curses and social snubs came at any hour of the day.

Founded in 1957 by Houston lawyer Ben G. Levy and a handful of supporters, the organization eventually made its mark in prison, civil rights and First Amendment litigation....

    <p>"If you want to send a message, call Western Union," said Hollywood pioneer Samuel Goldwyn to filmmakers and stars who sought to use their movie projects to advance some political agenda. Although the telegraph is a largely irrelevant alternative in this Internet age, the thinking behind Goldwyn's advice remains sane and solid: Political preachments, on or off camera, only interfere with the entertainment value of creative work by major Hollywood stars. Recent comments by some of the prime participants in the triumphal box-office hit The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King illustrate the uncomfortable implications of trying to impose timely messages on timeless fantasy.</p>

Dean, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, faced criticism from his party’s rivals for his comments following the Dec. 13 capture of Saddam. Since then, the national terrorism alert has been raised to orange and more troops have been killed in Iraq, he said at a town hall meeting in Nashua.

    <p>WITH THE HUGE amounts of money appropriated by Congress and additional billions pledged by international donors to address the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, it is now evident that if an issue has priority, money can be located. Without question, Iraq and Afghanistan must be rebuilt, but other pressing human needs cannot be forgotten. As World Bank President James Wolfensohn recently emphasized, the world devoted about $800 billion to military expenditures in 2002, compared with $56 billion in development assistance. To put it another way, UNICEF's annual budget is being spent on military purposes every 15 hours, even as 1.3 billion people, half of them children, live on less than $1 per day, in almost unimaginable conditions of deprivation.</p>

First up: Saddam's paid-up British anti-war activist, George Galloway: "This will not stop the Iraqi resistance. if anything, it may set the resistance free, if you like, from the cloud of Saddam Hussein, and transform it into a purely national resistance movement without the charge that it's being controlled from behind by the deposed president."

"But, I've since come to see you had understated the problem." The administrator's discovery process had likely been triggered six months earlier when I used the word "predatory" to describe the practices of activist-teachers who were using their positions of authority in the classroom to recruit children into their personal, political, social, and religious agendas. These "teachers" were using the classroom to promote activism, not academics. Worse, they...

Last Saturday, community activists convened at a small house on the west side of Ann Arbor, Mich., to witness video footage compiled by independent journalists of the police brutality at the Free Trade Agreement of the Americas conference in Miami last month.

    Has Hollywood Abandoned America? Where has Hollywood gone? Has Hollywood abandoned America? During the events leading up to Operation Iraqi Freedom, we heard the collective cries of the anti-war celebrities as their patriotism and loyalty was called into question. However, at a time when they have had ample opportunity to prove their critics wrong, Hollywood remains conspicuously absent. Hollywood has once again failed to support America in her time of need. This despite the fact that many celebrities enjoy the lifestyle afforded them due to the patronage of the American public. It's our money spent on movie tickets and DVDs...

    Nov. 28, 2003, 3:14PM Houston activist's court date draws attention By EDWARD HEGSTROM Copyright 2003 Houston Chronicle Well-known immigrant-rights activist Maria Jimenez goes to court Monday, accused of assaulting the executive director of the Harris County Republican Party. Jimenez, the head of the mayor's office of immigrant affairs, seems to be taking the matter in stride. When a police officer informed her of the misdemeanor assault charge during a protest at Harris County Republican Party headquarters Oct. 27, she responded: "Great! We couldn't have planned it better than this." Jimenez is accused of shoving a box of protest letters into...

They are keeping track of leftist profs on campus. The specter of McCarthyism has been raised. Oh the horrors!

    <p>Howard Dean is a mainstream candidate; he enjoys support across the broad mainstream of U.S. political opinion, from Greens to Republicans, between and beyond, who particularly appeals to metrosexual confederates. Many of his positions are consistent with those of traditional Conservatives and Libertarians.</p> <p>Howard Dean is not an ideologue; he bases his positions on the facts, and when the facts change he adjusts to the changes.</p>

    Ahhh, Those Lovable "Anti-War" Leftists in London.... The London StreetsWho are these anti-Bush people?By Amir Taheri LONDON — George W. Bush's visit to London this week will be historic for at least two reasons. He will be the first U.S. president to come to Britain on a state visit. He will also observe a bizarre political marriage: one between the remnants of the Marxist-Leninist Left and militant Islamists. Negotiated over the past two years, the "wedding," will be celebrated in a mass demonstration against Bush's visit. The demonstration is organized by a shadowy group called "Stop the War Coalition," part...

    Radio talk show host Laura Ingraham received a hostile reaction last week from crew on ABC’s daytime show, The View, to the premise of her new book, Shut Up and Sing: How Elites from Hollywood, Politics, and the UN are Subverting America. Other than Rachel Campos, one of three finalists auditioning to join the show permanently, the co-hosts were all appalled by Ingraham’s contention that elites on the coasts are out of touch with “the heartland.” When Ingraham argued “that the Democratic Party is not connecting with the people who are its logical constituents, from the South and from the...

    MRC analyst Jessica Anderson took down Ingraham's session on the November 4 The View. Star Jones: "Now, first of all, the title of the book is 'Shut Up and Sing.' Now, it's an explanation of how the 'elites' -- which I can't stand that word -- from Hollywood, Washington and the United Nations are subverting America. What exactly do you mean, Laura?" Ingraham: "We're supposed to have government of the people, by the people and for the people, and there are elites in this country who are Republicans and Democrats -- Hollywood just comprises one small section of that. The...

    Star Newspapers (Chicago) ^ | Sunday, November 9, 2003 | Michael J. Bowers
    Since Jayson Blair was exposed and fired on May 1, the New York Times has been performing atonement for partisanship and hubris. First came the long and painful front-page account of how management had been guilty of astonishing incompetence in failing to recognize Blair's deceptions. Next there was the establishment of the Siegal committee, which met for several weeks to recommend damage-control measures such as the appointment of an ombudsman for the first time ever. When this failed to end the storm, Publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr. fired Executive Editor Howell Raines and Managing Editor Gerald Boyd. (Sulzberger, a permanent boy...

    Columnists' Corner "The New Counterculture " By Gary Aldrich On Nov. 7, 1972, the New Left, also known as the “Counterculture,” suffered a major defeat at the polls when Leftist presidential candidate George McGovern lost 49 states to Richard Nixon. Nixon’s joy was short-lived. His re-election caused a furious counter-reaction by the emerging Hard-Left ideologues like Hillary Rodham Clinton. This movement, nurtured on the dreams of a Marxist-style revolution, had to settle instead for grown-up pragmatism that had as its basic tenet that to destroy the hated “system,” you first had to join it. They left the romantic Counterculture...

    I was happy to learn last week that a conservative student group at the University of Texas had published a "professor watch list" of instructors who "push an ideological viewpoint on their students through often times subtle but sometimes abrasive methods of indoctrination." I have long held that one of the most serious problems on our campus -- the largest in the country, with more than 51,000 students -- is that the student body is largely depoliticized. Given that lack of political engagement, I'm grateful for anything that gets students talking about politics, especially the role of politics in the...
