    "To be clear: Barack will support a filibuster of any bill that includes retroactive immunity for telecommunications companies." —Obama spokesman Bill Burton, Oct. 24, 2007 That was then: Democratic primaries to be won, netroot lefties to be seduced. With all that (and Hillary Clinton) out of the way, Obama now says he'll vote in favor of the new FISA bill that gives the telecom companies blanket immunity for post-9/11 eavesdropping. Back then, in the yesteryear of primary season, he thoroughly trashed the North American Free Trade Agreement, pledging to force a renegotiation, take "the hammer" to Canada and Mexico, and...

    WASHINGTON -- The terrorist attack foiled by British authorities prompted a battle of words yesterday between a pair of presidential contenders from Massachusetts, with Governor Mitt Romney lashing out at Senator John F. Kerry for suggesting that the war in Iraq has harmed the nation's security. Kerry, the Democrats' 2004 presidential nominee, seized on news of the disrupted plot as a ``stark reminder" that Osama bin Laden remains at large and said it shows that Al Qaeda has ``grown in strength" since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. ``Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda have succeeded in isolating the United...

Instead the Church made up that story to discredit her. What can I say to her? Controversy over the identity of St. Mary Magdalene has continued since the early Church. In the Gospels, there are three particular "characters" involved in the controversy: Mary Magdalene, a follower of our Lord (Jn 20:11-18); the anonymous penitent woman (Lk 7:36-50); and Mary of Bethany, the sister of Martha and...

In order to clear up much of the misunderstanding, the following twelve rules are offered: 1. Public school students' written or spoken personal expressions concerning the religious significance of Christmas (e.g., T-shirts with the slogan, "Jesus Is the Reason for the Season") may not be censored by school officials absent evidence that the speech would cause a substantial disruption. 2. So long as teachers are generally permitted to wear clothing or jewelry or have personal items expressing their views...

    Separation of ACLU and State By Monty Rainey February 2, 2005 For over 150 years after the drafting of the First Amendment, only a select hand full of cases found their way before the Supreme Court. That all changed radically in 1947 with the the now infamous Everson v. Board of Education case in which Justice Hugo Black et. al. wrongly construed Thomas Jefferson's "Wall of Separation" metaphor and the Court offered its first ever comprehensive interpretation of the constitutional pronouncement on church-state relations. In Black's opinion, all of the privileges and immunities of of citizens recognized in the Bill...

    MEXICO CITY - A U.S. warning about violence along the border in Mexico created unexpected friction with a crucial neighbor Thursday, just as new Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice (news - web sites) and other new members of President Bush (news - web sites)'s team are starting to take office. The blunt warning was issued because of an upswing of killings and kidnappings linked to battles between drug gangs in towns along the Mexican side of the border, but Mexico's top Cabinet officer, Interior Secretary Santiago Creel, insisted that the warning "went too far." -- snip -- U.S. State Department...

    NEW YORK (CBS.MW) -- For all its flaws, faults and flops, one reassuring characteristic of the American press is that it tends to learn from its ethical lapses and major factual mistakes. So it has been with the fallout till now from the messy story of how CBS covered President Bush's service in the National Guard during the Vietnam War some 30 years ago. The sorry tale of journalistic flop is bound to be examined for decades or longer in city rooms, in schools of journalism and in the press itself. Already, important journalists and scholars are drawing lessons, some...
  • (Vanity) Should we sabotage the efforts of our fellow conservatives?

    Should we be sabotaging our fellow conservatives by pasting their entire articles/news pages? A single story from CNN or Newsweek is one thing, but to steal the exposure, the hit, and the pittance of ad revenue by copying full articles from conservative websites to here instead of routing people there seems to go against the grain of our general views.

    Nashville TN Davis-Kidd Bookstore (Green Hills) | 8-19-04 | self
    This evening at approximately 6:15 CDT time here in Nashville I went to the Davis Kidd Booksellers at 4007 Hillsboro Road in the Green Hills section of Nashville. My wife had been by two days ago and reserved 2 copies for us of UNFIT and was told that the store would have them yesterday. I had planned to stop then but was too busy. When I went to the front desk I was told to go to the back counter where they hold reserve books. I went up to the bespectacled young lady and asked "Where are ya'll hiding Unfit...

    As U.S. elections near and al Qaeda threats abound toward Europe, speculation about the next al Qaeda attack is rife. However, much of the process involved in predicting the next major target appears to be based on a faulty underlying premise -- that al Qaeda's primary goal is to damage or destroy the United States. This misunderstanding of motives not only can lead to confusion over al Qaeda statements and actions, but also trigger false conclusions about the root cause of al Qaeda's prolonged inaction. The idea that al Qaeda hates the United States and sees it as its primary...
