SAF Defends Miami reporter, says First Amendment important as the second

The Second Amendment Foundation today called the arrest of WPLG reporter Jeffrey Weinsier a “First Amendment outrage” that only subsequently focused on a concealed handgun he was carrying “simply to deflect public attention from the fact that Weinsier was arrested for doing his job.”

Why the Ron Paul Campaign is DOA

Although presidential candidate Ron Paul is a life long Libertarian, he has chosen to operate within the Republican Party. The Libertarian Party has never been able to get off the ground due to some of its extreme positions and Paul, like other Libertarians, eventually found a home in a broadened RNC.

Another Blow Against Vaccine Hysteria—or is it

The vaccine preservative thimerosal has jumped the safety hurdle. Again. So indicates a recent large epidemiological study in the New England Journal of Medicine. “Again” is the problem, though. One huge study after another has cleared thimersorosal as a cause of child developmental disorders, and specifically autism, but there is a powerful lobby that couldn’t care less.

Biotech Deaths May Already Total Millions

The global conflict over high-yield farming became even uglier last week when armed activists “for the landless” invaded a Brazilian biotech research farm. One activist and a security guard were killed and eight other people injured.

Unfortunately, the clash over modern farming technology has already had victims by the millions. New technologies that would save millions of lives every year are being held back by activist-scared regulators, using the excuse of “more testing.”

New Uses for the so-called “frivolous” Social Medias

One of the challenges some of us face as we try and introduce our friends and family to some of the new Web 2.0 applications is a very large brick wall. My best friend is insistent in her belief that “Twitter is gay” and refuses to report anything other than reports on a fictional cat named Tubby. But for many of us, we are slowly getting through.

Making “Disposables” ‘Angels of the House’

imageIt’s the flicker of hope that comes from seeing a hungry child eating a bowl of soup that keeps Diana Sanchez going on her longest days.  It’s a never-give-up kind of hope that the soup kettle will be full enough to feed all of the children who find their way to Fundacion Mundial tomorrow, and as on many days as possible after that.

Fundacion Mundial is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization that got up and running with the help of hundreds of neighours in April of 2004.  Too busy feeding hungry mouths on a daily basis, Sanchez is now counting on Canada Free Press’ partners at the Bogota Free Planet to get the word out that it is only the kindness of people that can keep the organization going.

Read Our Lips: NO New Amnesty!

To Harry Reid, most Democrats, all RINOs, and President George Bush:

We the people understand that the U.S. Senate is considering yet another idiotic attempt to grant amnesty to upwards of 38 million illegal aliens who have invaded the sovereign nation known as the United States.

Turks Set Cars Alight in Brussels

Tonight (Wednesday evening) heavy rioting erupted in Turkish quarters of Brussels, the capital of Belgium. Buses and trams were attacked. Several cars were torched and shops destroyed. Police forces were unable to restore law and order in the boroughs of Sint-Joost-ten-Node and Schaarbeek where since last Sunday the animosity among Turks is running high. Turkish flags are omnipresent. In some streets the Turkish crescent and star adorns almost every house.

Bowing to the Islamists

Last Thursday, a group of 80 people from 15 European countries, plus Israel, Canada and the United States, convened in a conference room on the seventh floor of the European Parliament building in Brussels for a “counterjihad” meeting.

Dispatch from the Eurabian Front: Riots in Amsterdam and Brussels

Europe’s no-go zones or SUAs (“sensitive urban areas”) are multiplying. These are areas where the police no longer dares to venture and where Islamists hold sway. Every night since the beginning of last week, immigrant youths have been torching cars and clashing with police in Amsterdam’s Slotervaart district.

Anti-War Media Change Focus

With President Bush and Vice President Cheney warning that Iran must not be permitted to obtain nuclear weapons, our media have shifted their focus from Iraq. The shift is apparent in the decision by many reporters to make a controversy out of the fact that Senator Hillary Clinton, the Democratic frontrunner, voted for a resolution declaring the Iranian Revolutionary Guards to be a terrorist force. The resolution states a simple truth, but it has been interpreted by the anti-war media and the far-left in the Democratic Party as war-mongering and saber-rattling.

Internet Taxes to Come on Halloween…

You want scary? Try the fact that the moratorium on government taxation of the Internet comes to an end on October 31st. And, in true fright movie fashion, it happens at midnight. One expects a crack and flash of lightning to occur over the Capitol just as the witching hour tolls. But, will there be a wave of villagers with pitchforks to stop it? That’s up to all of us.

Booze taxes for Toronto—bring them on!

Much like the Boston Red Sox, Toronto Mayor David Miller and the socialist hordes at city hall didn’t have any time to bask in their victory. While the Red Sox look towards tonight’s game after beating the Colorado Rockies 13-1in the opening game of the 2007 World Series, the city mothers are looking towards what new taxes can be imposed after passing the municipal land transfer tax and vehicle registration fee three days ago

Domestic Terrorism… California arson fires easier than hijacking planes

image Officials: Arson Behind Santiago Fire

CA Fires Exclusive—Fed Source: Look to al Qaeda and the Islamic enemy in the U.S.

Law enforcement officials will agree that arson is the most difficult of crimes to “prove,” especially in terms of identifying the perpetrator(s). The fires this week in Southern California have cost more than $1 billion in lost property and displaced more than a million people, the greatest evacuation California has ever seen. The origin of the massive Santiago Canyon Fire alone has caused an estimated $10 million in damage, burning about 20,000 acres so far and damaging or destroying about 30 structures. That cause of that fire has been officially declared arson, according to federal officials, who identified two separate “points of origin.” Currently, the FBI is involved in the primary investigation of the fires, including forensic collection and analysis and scene management.

Commemorating Alger Hiss Day

imageOn every October 24 since he’s been President, George W. Bush has issued a proclamation recognizing “United Nations Day.” Typically, Bush calls upon the people of the United States “to observe this day with appropriate programs and activities.” The appropriate thing to do would be to acknowledge the basic truth that communist spy and State Department official Alger Hiss laid the groundwork for the U.N. and became its first acting secretary-general, causing it to be dubbed “the house that Hiss built.” Hiss also advised President Franklin Roosevelt at the Yalta conference, which defined post-World War II Europe and betrayed Eastern European nations to Soviet control.

Some things never change.  The Los Angeles Times last week reported that in New York City Hillary Clinton brings fresh meaning to Chinese take out.  Her campaign’s hauling in bundles of cash from impoverished Chinese areas.  Dishwashers, waiters, street vendors, and other folks not normally considered fat cats are generously donating.

Tom Flanagan is full of crap

As a so-called “red meat conservative”, I find the shenanigans that our current “Conservative” government is engaged in dismaying.  Supposedly acting on the advice of Tom Flanagan, the Harper government has taken a sharp turn to the left in the belief that by behaving like Liberals, they will be able to engineer a majority mandate following the next election.
