  • Peaceful Tomorrows, Leftist Todays

    A flood of anti-Bush headlines poured across the news outlets last week like a tidal wave: “Sept. 11 Families Disgusted By Bush Campaign Ads;” “Bush Ads Using 9/11 Images Stir Anger;” “Bush Exploiting 9/11;” and “Has Bush No Shame?” Morning and evening editions of national newspapers led with the story, and the major news television networks revisited the debate every half an hour like clockwork. The controversy arose from Bush’s presidential ad campaign, which depicts brief images of the World Trade Center after the tragedy of 9/11. Colleen Kelly, who lost her brother Bill Kelly Jr. in the attacks on...

    <p>Every time this newspaper runs a commentary exploring a possible uncomfortable nexus between Heinz Endowments disbursements and the presidential campaign of John Kerry (or some wild-eyed liberal, socialist or Marxist cause du jour), a nasty gram from the Pittsburgh-based endowments can't be far behind.</p>

    USA TODAY: 703.854.3400 Gwenn Foster - political editor. Mark Memmott - Judy Keen, writers Here we go again, FReepers. Finally, the NY POST did the story about the funding of PEACEFUL TOMORROWS. The POST told its readers about the funding which was ultimately tied to Teresa Heinz. I'm still waiting for the WASHINGTON POST and NY TIMES to set the record straight. Perhaps I shouldn't hold my breath. And now, we come to USA TODAY. Are they a wholly owned subsidiary of the DemocRATic Party? No. Do they do the bidding of the DemocRATic Party? It seems so. I spoke...

    Bush Ads in HeinzSightby Daniel Sargis08 March 2004Is President Bush really in a pickle over his recently released campaign advertisements?  The media would have you believing the issue has some traction.  As Reuters reported, “Families who lost relatives in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks pressed President Bush's re-election campaign on Friday to stop running political ads that use images of the devastated World Trade Center....”  Of course, there are “57 Varieties” of truth to this story. Almost without exception, the family members quoted in this and other similar stories are associated with pro-Kerry and/or, ipso facto, anti-Bush causes.  And, God forbid,...

  • The Bush Campaign Ads: Irrational Hatred and Phoney Outrage

    The Bush Campaign Ads: Irrational Hatred and Phoney Outrage March 8, 2004 by Edward Daley Once again the forces of extreme liberalism, moral ambiguity and pacifism have banded together to create the illusion of indignation over something that our president has done, and for obvious political reasons. I'm talking about the recent "outrage" over George W. Bush using images from 9/11 in two campaign advertisements released last week. (Video 1 | Video 2)When I first started hearing family members of certain victims of those horrific attacks saying that they were upset by the "unconscionable" use of those images by...

    <p>CHICAGO - Pittsburgh is home to a new liberal funding organization that lists its priorities as the local environment, land use and "sustainability." However, its affiliations raise questions about its real purpose. Known as the Tides Center for Pennsylvania, formerly the Tides Center for Western Pennsylvania, it is a creation of the Tides Foundation and Center, headquartered in San Francisco, and two Pennsylvania-based foundations -- the Vira Heinz Endowment and the Howard Heinz Endowment-- chaired by Teresa Heinz Kerry, heir to the Heinz food company fortune and wife of Democrat presidential contender Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts.</p>

    A Washington-based non-profit group called Americans for Gun Safety claims to take the middle ground on gun ownership. I question its neutrality. As a hunter, target-shooter and gun owner, I've been courted in the past by groups that claimed common-sense positions on firearms. These champions of "responsible use" recruit membership and money from both sides but typically lean hard to one side. At its Web site, AGS says it is "bringing a new voice to the debate over guns and gun safety, which for too long has been dominated by the far left and far right. Through legislative measures and...

    High and low tides put bounce into Britain By Roger Highfield, Science Editor (Filed: 29/11/2003) Parts of Britain "bounce" by four inches twice a day and the most wobbly counties are Devon and Cornwall, says a survey. The movement is caused as tides ebb and flow twice daily, according to the survey made using GPS (global positioning system) satellites, revealing tiny movements of the ground down to a few millimetres. The nationwide survey, by a team from the Ordnance Survey, Newcastle University and the Proudman Oceanographic Laboratory, Birkenhead, shows that the deformation of Earth's crust varies across the country. The...

    OSLO (Reuters) - Homes on the Arctic tip of Norway started getting power from the moon on Saturday via a unique subsea power station driven by the rise and fall of the tide. A tidal current in a sea channel near the town of Hammerfest, caused by the gravitational tug of the moon on the earth, started turning the 10-meter (33 ft) blades of a turbine bolted to the seabed to generate electricity for the local grid. The prototype looks like an underwater windmill and is expected to generate about 700,000 kilowatt hours of non-polluting energy a year, or...

    Date: Posted 5/30/2002 Columbia University Study Ties The Frequency Of Earthquakes To Ocean Tides A Columbia University scientist studying an active seafloor volcano in the Pacific Ocean has determined that there is a correlation between the hundreds of micro earthquakes she recorded and the ocean tides. Dr. Maya Tolstoy, Associate Research Scientist at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University, is publishing in the June issue of the journal Geology, research showing that earthquakes coming from the Axial Volcano on the Juan de Fuca Ridge, located off the coast of Washington and Oregon, are occurring during tidal lows when the...
