A Murderer’s Memorial Plaque in Minnesota and Other Maudlin Tributes

In another example of the upside down nature of our nation today, a man who murdered his ex-girlfriend and then killed himself is getting a nice memorial plaque in a Minnesota kid’s ballpark because his love for the kids was “greatly appreciated.”

One Less Good Man

By Joseph A. Kinney

In a few short days, General Peter Pace, the first Marine to Chair the Joint Chiefs of Staff, will be leaving his post and the Corps that he has served for 40 years.  For a Marine Corps in search of a few good men, they will have one less when Pace leaves.  In fact, they will be losing a giant of a man who has asserted moral leadership in the face of enormous pressure just when it was needed.

Sicko Studies

Look for the latest documentary from self-described gadfly Michael Moore to make the rounds of American college campuses in the not-so-distant future. From Roger & Me to Fahrenheit 9-11, college administrators and professors have routinely made Moore’s cinematic output available to students, either for their extracurricular edification or, not infrequently, as required viewing.

Nancy’s prayers

Nancy Pelosi  The only one whose knickers are bound to be in a twist over the grandiose gesture of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi “praying” for U.S. President George W. Bush, is opponent Cindy Sheehan.
  Pelosi rang George W. to tell him she is praying for him and praying that he would change his mind and sign a children’s health insurance bill, which expands a federal insurance program by $35 billion over five years—far in excess of Bush’s own proposal.
  Catholics are taught that they should never pray for money, but as far as most politicians go, money from the public purse is only taxpayers’ money anyway.

Pelosi Refuses to Denounce Hateful Anti-Christian Ad

Concerned Women for America (CWA) broke the story on Tuesday about an anti-Christian promotional advertisement put together by organizers of San Francisco’s partially taxpayer funded and Hedonistic Folsom Street Fair—sponsored by Miller Brewing, Co.—which will take place this Sunday.  Over 400,000 people are expected to attend.  The ad replaces Christ and his Disciples with homosexual sadomasochists in a twisted portrayal of Da Vinci’s The Last Supper.

Why Won’t the AP Describe the Taliban as Terrorists?

This AP report is a perfect example of how the western media hasn’t the temerity to call things as they are, a perfect example of how it soft-sells the truth for fear of violating those vaunted codes of politically correct conduct—and why we could lose this war with a radical Islam that isn’t afraid of how they are perceived by their enemies.

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

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.

The Only Way to Win the Immigration Battle

It’s hard to think of a battle that has been won by being defensive. You may be most skilled at blocking and slipping punches, but if that is all you do, sooner or later your opponent will land a few and enjoy victory. This occurs to me as I watch the latest amnesty battle.

Still Selma after all these years

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.

Land of the Ignorant, Home of the Spineless Quitter!

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?

CBS Can and Should Beat Dan Rather

Former CBS News anchor and reporter Dan Rather sent shockwaves through CBS and the mainstream media with his dramatic lawsuit against his former employer. On CNN’s Larry King Live this week, Rather seemed shaken and very emotional, fighting back tears on several occasions. His legal claims are even shakier.

Is It News or Chinese Propaganda?

There has been study after study proving the leftward tilt of the American media establishment, so the constant denials by that same media sounds increasingly absurd and hard to believe. But, it is one thing to have people who truly believe their own ideology is the best guide for the future and base their honest actions on that belief and quite another to act unethically in pursuit of their professions. Unfortunately, there seems far more of the latter these days than the former. And here is just another example of the latter to dishearten all of us.

Mark my words

Kaavya Viswanathan, a 19-year-old Harvard student, created quite a stir in literary circles when her novel, for which she had received a reported $500,000 advance from publisher Little, Brown, turned out to contain plagiarized passages from two books by Megan McCafferty.

Why Zeke can’t take Shorty to the fair

Zeke lived with an FFA teacher because he had no other home. He worked for his room and board; he fed the pigs and chickens, and helped with the milking. The summer between the 8th and 9th grades, Jasper, the FFA teacher, took Zeke to a neighbor’s ranch and let him pick out a day-old Hereford bull for his first FFA project. The deal was that Jasper would pay for the calf, and for the feed, and Zeke could repay Jasper when the calf grew to become the Grand Champion Steer at the state fair, and sold at the fair’s annual auction.

Petraeus IED’d in the House

As we commemorate the sixth anniversary of 9/11/01, Washington Democrats prove just how far they are willing to go to politicize a war that must defend America against events worse that 9/11…
