Sometimes, for those who pay attention, the stars align and produce spectacular effects in the cosmos and on earth. A similar effect can occasionally be produced through journalism.On June 26, the Washington Post featured three stories on its World News page that should teach a lesson to anyone who wishes to pay attention. The top story was headlined, "Olmert Makes 'Gesture of Goodwill': At Summit in Egypt, Israeli Leader Pledges to Seek Release of 250 ... [full story]

Rev. Donald Wildmon's three-decade old American Family Association develops sophisticated 'godcasting' network to activate its community of 'first responders' It has an annual budget of close to $17 million, net assets of more than $32 million, owns and feeds programming to nearly 200 radio stations, employs about 100 at its home-base, operates the Center for Law & Policy, a high-powered conservative legal enterprise, and has developed one of the most sophisticated communications networks in all ...

At the recent Take Back America Conference in Washington, 3,000 grassroots progressives were in a joyous, euphoric mood.  For a quarter-century they had been on the periphery of American politics, but not now.  Having led opposition to the Iraq War, liberal Democrats have the most to crow about as their party basks in dreams of winning the White House and electing a filibuster-proof Congress next year. Think how far they had come from the Reagan ... [full story]

A little over a year ago, a very disturbing case in New York City grabbed national headlines and provoked much controversy. It was that of a white man named Nicholas Minucci accused of attacking a black man with a bat while uttering an ugly racial epithet. His defense was that the N-word had become so mainstream and so common in its usage that it was no longer a derogatory term. Now, he's behind bars for ... [full story]

I recently saw a sneak preview of Michael Moore's new movie "Sicko," and I can tell you honestly that the movie is both funny and poignant. Some of the stories Moore tells of Americans who have been caught up in the bureaucracy of the American health system are truly heart-wrenching. The insurance company bureaucrats he exposes are cruel and capricious. There is no doubt that Michael Moore is a skilled filmmaker and an effective propagandist, ... [full story]

The bipartisan Border Tax Equity Act, or H.R. 2600, has just been introduced by Reps. Bill Pascrell Jr., D-N.J., Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., Michael H. Michaud, D-Maine and Walter B. Jones, R-N.C. The purpose is to correct border-tax inequities that cost U.S. producers and service providers $379 billion a year. The goal of U.S. post-World War II trade agreements, such as the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade and the World Trade Organization, was to lower ... [full story]

Ronald Reagan said famously, "The trouble with those on 'the left': if they see something move, they'll tax it, if it keeps moving, they'll regulate it, and if it stops moving, they'll subsidize it." We would add, as longtime "tax cutters," that unfortunately, all too often, that phenomenon is also occurring on "the right." Sens. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Max Baucus, D-Mont., are co-sponsoring a bill to tax private equity firms that go public, as ... [full story]

The Bush administration's announced goal for Israel and the "Palestinian people" has been two states, living side by side in peace. The administration is two-thirds there. There are now two states - one in Gaza, headed by the militant Hamas organization, which shot its way to power; and another in the West Bank headed by accused Holocaust denier Mahmoud Abbas. Unfortunately for Israel, there is no peace, which should not surprise those who have been ... [full story]

The globalists are making a new attempt to circumvent and weaken a right explicitly recognized in the U.S. Constitution: Americans' exclusive ownership of their own inventions. Fortunately, Sens. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., and Sam Brownback, R-Kan., have exposed this mischief and called on Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa., to slow down and discuss the proposed legislation before making costly mistakes. As ... [full story]

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg was never really a Republican; neither was he really a Democrat, the political party he previously left. From DINO (Democrat in name only), he became a RINO (Republican in name only) and now I guess one might call him, what, an UNO (unaffiliated in name only)?Actually, Bloomberg is to party affiliation what some New Yorkers are to their baseball teams - when they're winning they're all for them, but ...

The U.S. Senate has decided there's a chance for that immigration bill, after all. Under way, therefore, is a second phase of the only truly important debate that's likely to ensue in the 110th Congress. This may also revive some of the nastiest talk heard in our land since the civil rights debate raged nearly 50 years ago. It would be comforting to feel immigration reform can be addressed without resort to mass slander of ... [full story]

It pays to be friendly with the majority party in Congress.  The proof is in the new energy bill that just passed the House during the Democrats’ “100-hour” agenda. The CLEAN Energy Act of 2007, a contrived political acronym for “Creating Long-Term Energy Alternatives for the Nation,” has been portrayed as ending preferences for so-called Big Oil - a familiar victim on the left-wing's whipping post. In truth, what the bill does is raise taxes ... [full story]
