Red Sea Island off coast of Yemen wiped off world map by earthquake?

It’s a noble mission that the Canadian frigate HMCS Toronto was on as the world wakened to Monday morning today.  HMCS Toronto was conducting a search and rescue mission looking for nine missing soldiers, said to be the victims of a “catastrophic volcanic eruption”.

Bill O’Reilly: he’s not a racist; just a typical media elite

Fox News personality and radio talk show host Bill O’Reilly got himself into deep doo-doo a few days ago after he had a discussion about race with NPR’s Juan Williams on O’Reilly’s syndicated radio show. O’Reilly recounted (bragged?) about how he had lunch with the Rev. Al Sharpton at Sylvia’s, a black-run restaurant in Harlem.

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.

Collagen Producing Peptides For Wrinkled Skin

What made Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt, so attractive? Certainly being born beautiful wasn’t a hindrance for her seduction of Mark Anthony. But apart from having genetics on her side she knew that natural beauty could be preserved and augmented by the application of healthy emollients. Both Cleopatra and Poppea, wife of the Roman Emperor Nero, used a honey-and-milk lotion to keep them looking youthful. But what would Cleopatra and Poppea have done to get their hands on a new potion proven to reduce wrinkles up to 78 percent?

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.

Listening to Golden Oldies at Echos—where I want to be!

Right up there with investigative journalism and gourmet cooking, the allure of the Golden Oldies is my passion.

Tuning in to AM740 is the start of my every business day. The songs of Dean Martin, Fats Domino and Gerry Vale keep me going. They make all the difference in my overly busy life in front of the computer screen.

Sometimes I get to tune in to AM740 when not writing for Canada Free Press (CFP). Barring business emergencies, at 2 p.m. every Sunday, I put everything aside to hear Gene Stevens. I rate his Vintage Favorites; from 2 to 4 as the best radio show I’ve ever heard!

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.

Border Security: Fraud Risks in Managing Diversity Visa Program

Diversity visas provide an immigration opportunity to aliens from countries with low rates of immigration to the United States. Diversity visa applicants must apply online, be selected by lottery, be interviewed, and be determined to be eligible before obtaining a diversity visa.

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.

No-Waste Lawn & Garden

Minnesota’s motto reads L’Etoile du Nord—The Star of the North. Indeed to our American cousins it is known as the North Star State. If that is so, to judge by their website, surely one of the stellar organizations there must be the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA).

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.
