Statement On The Passing Of Statesman Henry Hyde

The passing of former Congressman Henry Hyde is a great loss to the pro-family movement in America. Rep. Hyde was a giant in the battle to defend the right to life of unborn children. He was the author of the Hyde Amendment, which to this day forbids federal funds from being used for abortions! He also passionately fought for a ban on partial-birth abortions.

CNN’s GOP Debate Becomes Democrat Showcase

image
The CNN YouTube debate was a sham with planted Democrat operatives posing as “spontaneous” YouTube questioners—one of them being an official Hillary Campaign operative—and a post debate coverage full of apologies and further spin against the candidates all of which ended up being a showcase for CNN’s leftism placed on full display. It isn’t called the Clinton News Network for nuthin’ it appears.

The great climate change extortion racket

Anyone who still believes that the Kyoto Accord is about actually reducing so-called greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere is in dire need of therapy.  Kyoto is now and has always been about redistributing wealth.  Recent statements by countries such as Brazil and India have confirmed this to be the case as developing nations are taking the position that climate change was caused by industrialized countries and should therefore be remediated by those countries.

People poaching – it’s the Canadian way

An editorial in the upcoming issue of the Canadian Medical Association Journal goes after Shoppers Drug Mart. The Canada-wide drugstore chain is accused by the journal of “poaching” pharmacists from South Africa. According to the editorial, about 75 per cent of pharmacy positions in the province of KwaZulu-Natal remain vacant while the drugstore company actively recruits and helps pharmacists emigrate to Canada. This practice does not bode well for a country where AIDS and other diseases are rampant among the population.

10 Steps to Understanding Liberal Thinking

—Satire—

The liberal brain does not collect and process information in a logical, reasonable, and objective manner. Rather, liberal thinking is dominated by an obsession with power, and use of that power to preserve elitist advantages.

Ancient Earth not matching up

Everyone loves a good mystery. There’s nothing quite as good as sitting down, and trying to work out whether it actually was the butler, or if poor Jeeves was simply framed. But mysteries come in all shapes and sizes, as can be attested to by researchers from the University of Michigan and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Speed Racer in front of the Green Screen

Many of you will be well aware, and maybe just a little smitten with the late 60s cartoon series, Speed Racer. Some of you may have encountered it as it made its way to screens from Japan; others will have encountered it in subsequent re-runs on the Cartoon Network.

A Change in Government and Policy

Being an Australian citizen has been a tough time recently. I mentioned last week that my great country was only a few days away from a general election. I mentioned the embarrassment that friends had felt upon hearing that only we and the United States were Kyoto Protocol holdouts.

Durbin toys with a new idea

Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) is really, really concerned these days about toy safety.  So, as the Dickster is wont to do when he’s really, really concerned, he brought his massive intellect to bear in reaching a solution.  This was plainly a time for creative, original, innovative, out of the box ideas.  Think, think, think.  By Jove, he’s got it!  More money for a government agency.

The Squared Circle

It was last Friday at Las Staple Centre where 29-year-old Ricardo Mayorga out machoed veteran Fernando Vargas and sent the tough super middleweight into an early retirement after a very tough, 12-round majority decision. Both pugilists showed a noticeable animosity towards each other, which culminated in a pier-six brawl at a prefight press conference.

Exploiting Justice O’Connor’s Tragedy for Political Points

I have to say, this little L.A.Times editorial really takes the cake for insensitivity. It should receive some sort of award for being one of the most gauche pieces I’ve seen from the extreme leftists masquerading as “journalists” for a long, long time.

Planned Parenthood Ottawa denies local charity drive freedom of choice

Planned Parenthood Ottawa (PPO) is trying to make a Tree Raffle, launched Monday by the wives and girlfriends of the Ottawa Senators NHL hockey team, their business.

  The Senators’ “Better Halves” launched a holiday fundraising campaign and one of the organizations set to benefit from the money raised is First Place Pregnancy Centre.  The Centre is an Ottawa-based organization that advertises it “wants you to be empowered to make your choice”, but will not provide women facing an unplanned or unwanted pregnancy with referrals to abortion services.

New York Times hopes for SCOTUS Gun Grab

The “paper of record” once again makes like a broken record with another prosaic call to take away guns from the average American. The New York Times again displays its complete disregard of the Constitution in an editorial titled, “The Court and the Second Amendment”, claiming our founding law is out of date and doesn’t “confront modern-day reality.”

Will Californians Face Social Chaos Imposed by Politicians?

“I shudder to think how millions of California children will be led astray, how marriage will be destroyed, and how immorality will step on the neck of morality if Arnold Schwarzenegger signs five anti-family bills into law. The ‘Terminator’ has less than two weeks to sign or veto very bad bills!” said Randy Thomasson, president of Campaign for Children and Families.
