The "Fix" Is In

By Chuck Baldwin

Saturday, September 29, 2007

"Bush quietly advising Hillary Clinton, top Democrats." This is the title of a much under-reported news story, which appeared in The Examiner on September 24th. The Examiner opens the story by saying, "President Bush is quietly providing back-channel advice to Hillary Rodham Clinton, urging her to modulate her rhetoric so she can effectively prosecute the war in Iraq if elected president."

Anti-War Forces Haven't Won Battle for American's Heart and Minds

By Warner Todd Huston

Friday, September 28, 2007

In the run up to the 2006 midterms, all the media talking heads and political pundits were talking about how the GOP was losing because the country was "sick of the war" and there was a wide spread assumption that large scale protests were proof that the anti-war lot had won the debate for American's hearts and minds. After all, millions seemed to be marching in protest against the war the country over and the TV news frequently showed these giant bands of misfits parading the streets.

Still Selma after all these years

By Michael M. Bates

Friday, September 28, 2007

Jesse Jackson is getting some richly deserved criticism for charging Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) is "acting like he's white" when it comes to the racially charged incident in Jena, Louisiana. Since shooting his mouth off, Jackson's backed away, claiming he either doesn't remember saying any such thing or that his words were taken out of context, whichever excuse you'll buy.

Hate Crimes are a subset of Political Correctness

By Malcolm Hedges

Friday, September 28, 2007

Left-wing radicals are encouraging various government bodies to enact hate crime laws that are designed to restrict free speech and social intelligence.

Disbarred, convicted lawyer for terrorists to give "ethics" lecture at Hofstra

By Douglas J. Hagmann & Judi McLeod

Thursday, September 27, 2007

Lynne STEWART, the disbarred lawyer convicted of aiding terrorists will be giving a lecture on legal ethics at an upcoming law school ethics conference at Hofstra University. STEWART, who was found guilty of conspiring with terrorist Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, the Muslim terrorist convicted in 1996 of plots to bomb landmarks in and around New York City, is scheduled to give a lecture on October 16 at Hofstra Law School's "Legal Ethics: Lawyering on the Edge" at the Hempsted, NY University.

America: Land of the Ignorant, Home of the Spineless Quitter!

By J.B. Williams

Thursday, September 27, 2007

 

Has America given up on America? Have voters quit and left their nation in the hands of despotic politicians seeking power and fortune for themselves at the expense of America’s future?

 

Congress -- 11% Approval Rating!

By J.B. Williams

Wednesday, September 26, 2007

 

Oddly enough, in an increasingly strange world of American politics, this almost makes sense!

MoveOn's Misfire

By Nathan Tabor

Wednesday, September 26, 2007

It would be foolish to discount the political power of the Internet phenom known as MoveOn.org. After all, it claims 3.2 million members, and there's no denying that it has become a major player in the Democratic Party.

Bare Necessities: Hard to Attain for a College Graduate

By Nancy Salvato

Wednesday, September 26, 2007

Upon graduating from college, many twenty-somethings reconcile with living under their parents' roofs until they can find full-time employment, pay for housing, feed, and clothe themselves.

Chicago Columnist: Tobacco Bad, Abortion Good

By Warner Todd Huston

Wednesday, September 26, 2007

A columnist from a Chicago suburban paper has equated smoking to abortion in order to explain away her support of an abortion mill struggling to open in Aurora, Illinois. Saying that since smoking is legal, and it "kills" people, why shouldn't abortion be legal, we find her reasoning is strained and absurd.

Dobson Is Right About Giuliani

By Chuck Baldwin

Wednesday, September 26, 2007

As a conservative Baptist pastor for more than thirty years and a former executive director for the Moral Majority, my roots in the Religious Right run pretty deep. However, over the last several years, I have become a consistent critic of the Religious Right, as faithful readers of this column already know.

My Enemy's Friend is also My Enemy

By J.B. Williams

Tuesday, September 25, 2007

 

On a good day, the world is full of political and ideological complexities and competing interests. During times of international conflict and war, those complexities and competing interests can become a deadly gamble in the game of separating friend from foe.

When Hypocrisy is a Good Thing

By Selwyn Duke

Tuesday, September 25, 2007

Many leftist partisans are licking their chops over the revelation that Idaho Republican Senator Larry Craig solicited sex from a male undercover detective in a Minneapolis airport bathroom.

Femi-Nazis?

By Malcolm Hedges

Tuesday, September 25, 2007

Yup, it be true. It's a part of the Progressive agenda and it's alive and well.

Socialized medicine is not the solution

By Henry Lamb

Monday, September 24, 2007

Despite the claims of socialists, Democrats, and many others, there is no "right" to adequate health care. Rights are endowed by the Creator and are limited to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. All other so-called rights are manufactured by governments. Governments are not empowered to grant rights; governments can only limit, or extinguish rights. Governments can, however, bestow gifts upon its citizens. But in order to do so, governments must first take resources from those who have earned them, and redistribute those resources to others.

Does America Need Enlightenment from Mahmoud Ahmadinejad?

By John W. Lillpop

Monday, September 24, 2007

Wouldn't it be reassuring to know that America's institutions of higher learning are clamoring for the opportunity to explain free speech, democracy, basic human rights, equal rights for women and minorities, and other western concepts to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad?

If Hillary Is Elected...

Satire By John W. Lillpop

Sunday, September 23, 2007

Hillary Clinton Should the American people be foolish enough to elect Hillary Clinton to the presidency in 2008, the following events will surely ensure:

The 44th president of the United States will take the Oath of Office at the UN. She will place her left hand on the Koran, while swearing (in Spanish) at the U.S. Constitution, free markets, and Republicans.

US Has Helped Mexico But Tons of Drugs Continue to Flow

By Jim Kouri

Sunday, September 23, 2007

The overall goal of the U.S. National Drug Control Strategy, which is prepared by the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), is to reduce illicit drug use in the United States.

Racism in Government Schools

By Jim Kouri

Saturday, September 22, 2007

A growing number of Americans believe that the US government school system has declared war on white, male students. In fact, many believe that young boys are treated more harshly than teachers who sexually exploit children.

Is Hollywood filled with artistic cowards?

By Warner Todd Huston

Saturday, September 22, 2007

Hollywood loves to abuse young girls and routinely depicts underage and taboo breaking sexual encounters, not to mention its perennial depiction of extreme violence. So it is amazing that every year we are treated to Hollywood types decrying that the film industry is "afraid to take chances" in film.

Divestment Double Standard

By Malcolm Kline

Saturday, September 22, 2007

University administrators have long advocated pulling their endowment funds out of investments that benefit countries that the elites find odious yet while they have divested themselves of holdings in nations such as South Africa or Israel, they are reluctant to pull their chips out of Iran, no matter how many terrorist watch lists U. S. government agencies put the regime on.

'Lettuce' Consider Political Correctness and the Military

By Malcolm Hedges

Friday, September 21, 2007

I would suggest that there is no way for them to mix.

Political Correctness (PC) is a Socialist Scheme to control the populace and create artificial rules to discourage thinking.

Is Fred Thompson A Conservative?

By Basil Harrington,

Friday, September 21, 2007

There has been much discussion as to how liberal Fred Thompson may be. A blogger recently wrote: "Make no mistake about it, Fred 'CFR' Thompson is a neocon through and through. The only real conservatives in the race are Tancredo, Paul and Hunter."

Will Senator McConnell Take on the U.N.'s Seasick Lawyers?

By Cliff Kincaid

Thursday, September 20, 2007

America celebrates Constitution Day on Monday, September 17, as we find members of the Bush Administration and liberals in the Senate working feverishly to get the U.S. involved in another international treaty, the U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). This pact, which would further erode the sovereignty and independence of our nation, authorizes foreign bodies and judges to decide our fate on the oceans, determining who gets access to vast deposits of oil and gas and precious minerals. A Senate vote on this pact is coming up soon, perhaps by the end of this month.

Life, Liberty and Freedom: The Greatest Common Good on Earth

By J.B. Williams

Thursday, September 20, 2007

 

Throughout world history, people seeking dominion over other people have always claimed that their desire for ultimate power serves some greater common good. They sell the notion that their personal quest for power is justified by their need to save you little people from yourselves.

Recalling the Indispensable Senator No

By Michael M. Bates

Thursday, September 20, 2007

"Son, just so you understand, I don't care what The New York Times says about me. And nobody I care about cares what The New York Times says about me."

Solving Problems
Is what People do, Not Politicians

By J.B. Williams

Wednesday, September 19, 2007

 

I'm forty seven years old. Ronald Reagan was the first president I was old enough to vote for and it was an easy decision after a disastrous Jimmy Carter era. Reagan talked about solving our immigration woes, fixing a broken Social Security system, strengthening our military and national security, dealing with the evil empires of the world, which threatened our peace and prosperity, re-building traditional family values and returning America to its core principles of freedom, personal liberty and personal responsibility.

In the Midst of a Second American Revolution

By Nancy Salvato

Wednesday, September 19, 2007

Antonio Gramsci and Ayn Rand; each notable for their distinct yet conflicting views on the role of the individual in society, were both heavily influenced by the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia. Each denounced physical coercion employed by police and armed forces, or as Rand would say, by "communist thugs". Both wrote about the revolution's influence on their belief systems. That is where their similarity ends.

Rash of Taser Incidents Leave Me Disillusioned

By Felicia (Fee) Benamon

Wednesday, September 19, 2007

Complete disappointment, revulsion, and disbelief were the instant feelings that ran through me as I watched news of a story about a college student at the University of Florida being tased by police officers for only going over his allotted time in asking a question during a political forum.

Well here I am

By Malcolm Hedges

Tuesday, September 18, 2007

The nice crew at CFP has decided to let me mumble on their great venue.

Once again I am visiting Toronto. Way back some several years ago, I was in the city as an Electronic Test Engineer for about two weeks. Every minute of the visit was a nice experience--in spite of the tons of snow.

Why Fred Thompson

By J.B. Williams

Monday, September 17, 2007

 

Nobody is more surprised to see former Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson in the 2008 race for the White House than Fred Thompson himself. At age 64, with a successful acting career, a stable financial future, a second chance at family life, a bright beautiful young wife and two small children, running for President of the United States was likely not on his list of things to do.

Will Hillary Go Down in Corruption Scandals?

By Roger Aronoff

Thursday, September 13, 2007

The strange story of Democratic fat cat donor Norman Hsu is rich and revealing, but it certainly isn't the only controversy that puts the lie to the Democratic claim to have ended the culture of corruption. Other embarrassing developments include the fine assessed to Americans Coming Together, the group backed by Democratic donor George Soros; the New Jersey corruption scandal that has cast a wide net over state Democrats; and Democratic Senator Hillary Clinton's legal troubles with former donor Peter Paul.

Even Oprah can't save Obama

By Michael M. Bates

Wednesday, September 12, 2007

Oprah Winfrey can shill for Barack Obama. She can host glitzy events and collect cash for him. She can campaign with him, maybe even do some commercials for him. What she can't do is take a candidate who's clearly not ready for the big leagues and make him a president.

Obsessing over Jews

By Alan Caruba

Wednesday, September 12, 2007

With the advent of the two most holy days of the Jewish lunar calendar, Rosh Hashanah, the "New Year", followed in ten days by Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, it's a good time to visit the subject of why Jews are universally the subject of hatred and fear.

GOP Endorses Life-Long Bread Lines

By Tom DeWeese

Tuesday, September 11, 2007

I've been waiting for the disbelief and outrage to emerge from Republicans across the nation over the Republican Party's recent announcement. Incredibly, the RNC announced that it is endorsing the poverty eradication program of rock star Bono. There hasn't been any outrage yet from GOP rank and file. Is there nothing left of the old GOP?

One World Conspiracy or New World Think Tank?

Satire By John W. Lillpop

Tuesday, September 11, 2007

Because the format of the latest debate among Democrats was based on racial profiling and pandering to illegal aliens, hundreds of millions of decent American citizens were unable to understand the sound bits and propoganda that flowed from the 10 least qualified presidential candidates in U.S. history.

Democrat Sound Bites Translated into American

Satire By John W. Lillpop

Tuesday, September 11, 2007

Because the format of the latest debate among Democrats was based on racial profiling and pandering to illegal aliens, hundreds of millions of decent American citizens were unable to understand the sound bits and propoganda that flowed from the 10 least qualified presidential candidates in U.S. history.

Wide Stance and a Tap Dance

By J. Matt Barber

Tuesday, September 11, 2007

 

Heard the one about the U.S. Senator who walked into the toilet with an undercover cop on perversion patrol? 

Of course you have.  Everyone's heard it, but unfortunately, it's not just a bad bar room joke. 

Come Together During this 6th Anniversary of 911

By Felicia (Fee) Benamon

Tuesday, September 11, 2007

Allow me to emphasize how important it is that we come together as a family of Americans, on the 6th anniversary of Sept.11th.

Fundraising for Hillary and Other Felonies. Or "Whose Hsu" Is That?

Satire By John W. Lillpop

Monday, September 10, 2007

Idealistic American youth have a long history of joining political causes in order to participate more fully in the democratic process.

Adios Rudy, Welcome Fred!

By John W. Lillpop

Sunday, September 9, 2007

With his latest pronouncement, which holds that illegal immigration is not and should not be a crime, Rudy Giuliani has confirmed his reputation as a big city liberal, too far to the left of Hillary Clinton to be a Democrat, and too much like George W. Bush to be a Republican.

Thoughts On The Larry Craig Scandal

By Chuck Baldwin

Saturday, September 8, 2007

The recent bathroom sex scandal involving Republican Idaho Senator Larry Craig has become a political hornet's nest. However, to those who are privy to the real-life goings-on among the political elite in Washington, D.C., this comes as no surprise.

Thompson Officially in the Race
What's Next?

By J.B. Williams

Thursday, September 6, 2007

 

Those who have been patiently waiting for a formal campaign announcement from Sen. Fred Thompson were rewarded last night when Thompson used Jay Leno's Tonight Show to make his run for the White House official. It's official, he's in. Now what?

Wherever There Are Criminal Invaders and Moochers, There Is Mexico!

Satire By John W. Lillpop

Saturday, September 8, 2007

How utterly brilliant of Mexican President Felipe Calderon to remind the United States of his major political philosophy for running that corrupt hell hole.

Ted Kennedy Casts 15,000th Vote: Woe Be Unto America!

Satire By John W. Lillpop

Thursday, September 6, 2007

Over the past 45 years, Senator Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) has cast 15,000 votes, nearly all of which have been against the interests of the American people.

In retrospect, allowing Osama bin Laden to vote in Kennedy's place would have resulted in far less damage to America's democracy, economy, and freedom.

It is Hypocritical for Reid, Pelosi and Clinton to Condemn Iraqi Leaders When Congress Cannot Pass Immigration Reform or Rebuild New Orleans

By Christian Newswire

Thursday, September 6, 2007

Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense, releases the following and is available for comment:

Congressional leadership should be supporting and encouraging Iraqi political leaders in their struggle to build a free and democratic society.

Verbal blunders: Not just for kids

By Michael M. Bates

Thursday, September 6, 2007

Miss Teen South Carolina could have resorted to the typical beauty pageant ploy. You know, the one where the contestant simply restates whatever question she was asked and then shifts to a stirring call for world peace, a cure for AIDs, and an end to global warming.

Nancy Pelosi's Progressive Program to Fix Immigration

Satire By John W. Lillpop

Wednesday, September 5, 2007

For Immediate Release

(San Francisco)---The following press release was issued by the Office of Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the United States House of Representatives:

With the illegal alien protest marches still fresh in our memories, Speaker Pelosi believes that the American people need progressive ideas and leadership when it comes to the issue of immigration.

Neo-Con: Do You Qualify?

By J.B. Williams

Wednesday, September 5, 2007

 

The most popular political slur of our time is the term "neocon." Politically engaged people of several ideologies use the term regularly and although they mean different things when they use it, the term is always intended to be an insult, like the terms "neo-Nazi," and "fascist," also favorite slurs of the same ilk using "neocon."

Shut Up, Felipe Calderon!

By John W. Lillpop

Tuesday, September 4, 2007

Mexican President Felipe Calderon is supposed to be the leader of a third world nation that cannot feed, house, educate, or provide health care to it's citizens.

The demise of representative government

By Henry Lamb

Monday, September 3, 2007

Few people saw it coming. Many are still oblivious. But it is here, and growing: administrative government. What made America great was the creation of a government designed to exercise only the power granted to it by the people who are governed. The Declaration of Independence says it quite clearly: "Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed...."

Is the "Intent" of Larry Craig Good Enough? 

By John W. Lillpop

Sunday, September 2, 2007

Perhaps I am too cynical, but Senator Craig's resignation speech seems to include a bit of uncertainty.
