    Image that accompanied Abu Bakr al Baghdadi's audiotape announcing the creation of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant. The flag was originally al Qaeda in Iraq's banner, but has been adopted by other al Qaeda affiliated and associated groups. Image from the SITE Intelligence Group. The emir of al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI), Abu Bakr al Baghdadi (also known as Abu Dua), has announced a new brand for his organization's efforts: the "Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant." The new name replaces all previous brands used by al Qaeda's affiliates in Iraq and Syria, including the...
  • [Vanity] What if any OATH do employees of DHS swear?

    I am curious, perhaps concerned to know what if any oath the "officers" employed by DHS (Homeland Security) swear. I can readily read what our military enlisted and officer corps recite when they swear in. I can also read the same for the President. But to WHAT or WHOM do the 'officers' of DHS owe their loyalty and duty?

  • Justice Stevens Will Swear In Biden as Vice President

    Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, the oldest and longest-serving justice on the Court, will swear in Joseph Biden as Vice-President on Jan. 20, a source close to the inaugural planners has confirmed to Legal Times. Stevens, 88, was named to the Court in 1975 by President Gerald Ford. It is rare for a vice president to be sworn in by an associate justice appointed by a president of the opposite party, so this choice can be seen as a bipartisan gesture -- though Stevens is usually regarded as one of the most liberal justices on the Court.
  • Oh Say Can You Swear On A Koran ? (Is Dennis Prager's opinion About Rep. Ellision Correct ?)

    National Review ^ | 11/29/2006 | Eugene Volokh
    Oh Say, Can You Swear on a Koran? What’s correct. By Eugene Volokh The U.S. Constitution is a multiculturalist document. Not in all senses, of course: It tries to forge a common national culture as well as tolerating other cultures. But it is indeed multiculturalist in important ways. We shouldn’t forget that when we’re tempted to categorically condemn supposedly multiculturalist changes to our constitutional practices. Consider what Dennis Prager — - whose work I often much like — wrote in his most recent column: Keith Ellison, D-Minn., the first Muslim elected to the United States Congress, has announced that he...

    The purpose of FreeRepublic.com's multiple message boards is to limit the topics for each board to particular topics. Posting the same message on all the boards defeats the purpose of multiple-boards for special topics. It is very annoying to see the same message on every bulletin board. PLEASE!

    DERRY, N.H. -- Moments after praising his opponents in the Democratic presidential race as worthy running mates, Wesley Clark said, in no uncertain terms, how he would respond if they or anyone else criticized his patriotism or military record. "I'll beat the s--- out of them," Clark told a questioner as he walked through the crowd after a town hall meeting Saturday. "I hope that's not on television," he added. It was, live, on C-SPAN. The campaign's traveling press secretary, Jamal Simmons, was with Clark at the time. "If anyone tries to question Wes Clark's character, integrity or his commitment...

    As I was jogging through lovely Baltimore City today in my W'04 campaign t-shirt, I had an interesting experience. Now, I understand that this is a liberal town, but I was surprised when a large, mustached woman leaned out the window of her toyota camry and yelled "F--- you, Bush sucks!" As she drove off, I could see her car had been plastered with bumper stickers, mostly advertising "Peace." I saw a Attack Iraq? NO! sticker, along with a "War is not the Answer" one. There was also a sticker for some organization (FLRC?--couldn't make it out. . .) Since...
