The Keyes to Reno

Ambassador Alan Keyes addressed several hundred attendees of the Conservative Leadership Conference being held in Reno, Nevada on Friday night, October 12th. Ostensibly, he was there to explain why he was running for president of the United States but it soon became obvious that he was there far more for a cause separate from a simple run for the White House. Ambassador Keyes was there no less to rejuvenate the Republic and if mere passion could turn back the tide of anti-Constitutionalism, Alan Keyes would be the dynamo powering that effort.

Death of a Messenger

Don’t kill the messenger! You’ve heard that saying before and it has as much relevance today as in the past. Ages ago before the wondrous technologies for long distance communication were available; the means of sending messages between individuals over great distances fell to the responsibility of the humble messenger.

Will Al Gore Win the Triple Crown

As of mid-October, 2007 has been a very good year for Albert Gore, former Vice President of the United States. And it may get even better before 2007 has ended.

The Old Man and the Law of the Sea Treaty

It’s always fascinating to watch tenured faculty members leaving their ivory cocoons where they lecture to impressionable teenagers and 20-somethings to come face-to-face with skeptical middle-aged men. Such an encounter occurred last week in one of the few hearings the U. S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee deigned to hold on the Law of the Sea Treaty, the U.N.-generated pact that many fear would cede control of the oceans to that international body.

Conservatives Congregate in Reno—CLC Report

What is it you see in your mind when you think of liberal activists? Is it large groups gathered together to complain or protest? Perhaps. On the other hand, what is it that comes to mind when you hear about conservative activists? Is it a large group of folks coming together to advocate for change? Or do you more often think of a lone guy trying to stand in the way of change? I’d wager it is the latter.

Here comes Al Gore

In February of this year I wrote a piece that talked about the flawed Presidential campaigns of the two Democratic frontrunners, Hillary Clinton and Barak Obama.  Hillary has too much baggage as well as stratospheric negative perception ratings and Obama plainly has too little experience to be considered anything but a lightweight.

Should Gore Run in ‘08?

Sharing the Nobel Prize with the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has given rise to a lot of talk about yet another Al Gore run for the White House. Nobody looked more uncomfortable Friday morning than Hillary Clinton, the current front-runner for the Democrat nomination, who clearly saw her own star fading fast as Al accepted the highest honor offered any international leftist.

Gore’s Nobel Prize Could Sideline Hillary

It is being widely reported that Al Gore’s winning of the Nobel Peace Prize could propel him into the presidential race, but the award is tainted and the former vice president received it shortly after a British Court issued a ruling alleging numerous errors in his film on global warming. In short, Gore’s prize is a joke, something that should be fodder for late-night comedians.

Spinal-vacuous disorder hits U.S. Senate

Call your Senators (202) 224-3121) and ask each of them for their position on the Convention on the Law of the Sea.  Ten-to-one says that a young, well- tutored voice will say something like: “we don’t have a statement on that,” or “the Senator has not taken a position yet,” or the Senator is still studying the issues.”

So, How Many Nobel Peace Prizes Has Hillary Won

—Satire

Former Vice President Al Gore’s efforts to save the planet finally paid dividends when he was able to triangulate a phony non-issue into a Nobel Peace Prize, a mockery of science that Gore shares with a UN panel.

Why Al Gore Should Run for President

About a month ago, I was on my way to the Old South Meeting House to see former Nixon White House counsel John Dean speak.  As I approached the entrance, a man standing outside the door asked me if I wanted to sign a petition to draft Al Gore to run for the White House in 2008.  I ignored the man, walked inside and laughed to myself.

President Bush Defends Rapist-Murderer To Appease Mexico

It seems President George W. Bush will stop at no lengths to appease Mexico and place the United States under international authority. His latest fiasco, however, twists logic, mocks justice, and defies decency.

Tears for the passage of time

American SoldiersLike many, I have been struck by the images contained in Ken Burns’ The War.  But I am most disturbed by the contrasts found in our pursuit of a multi-theatre war to victory then and the defeatism and rancor rampant in our current simpering left, as we try pursue a far less globally destructive but just as vitally important a conflict against a similarly determined fascist foe today.

In early 1945, our troops began to liberate elements of the concentration camp system, horrible places like Dachau and Mauthausen, where unburied bodies numbered in the tens of thousands and the crematoria were still warm, and where we were met by its survivors, who put up posters welcoming our boys to those dreadful compounds.

The Congressional Black Caucus is shortchanging poor and minority energy consumers

The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation recently hosted its annual legislative conference in Washington. A keynote session—billed as an “energy braintrust”—promised a lively three-hour discussion by top executives from oil companies, associations, government agencies and universities. It would “transform dialogue into action” and “bolster the relationships between the energy industry and African-American community.”

General Sanchez Rips The Media

If ever there was a clearer example of selective reporting and bias by the media, here is the best example to date.

The left is translating and selectively quoting LTG (Ret) Ricardo Sanchez’ comments during the October 12 Military Reporters and Editors Luncheon in Washington D.C. “Former top general rips Bush’s Iraq policy” is not exactly what happened here, yet if you were to accept their editorializing, that’s what many are going to come away with.
