By Kay C. James (President of The Heritage Foundation) ~ Like many Americans, I watched in disbelief Wednesday as an angry mob stormed our U.S. Capitol.

By Alan Caruba at Warning Signs Consider this. Germany’s voters have turned away from socialism. So have Italy’s. The French elected a president who defeated a socialist opponent. The British are about to rid themselves of the Labour Party, a proponent of socialism. Even China, while still governed by its communist party, has embraced capitalism […]

By Nancy Morgan Its now official. I’m a racist. No less than a former president of the United States has declared that if I oppose the takeover of 17% of our economy under the guise of health care reform, I hate black people. According to President Carter, U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson’s objection to a ‘misstatement’ […]

Washington Protest – Jimmy Carter, And Spin

I mentioned in an earlier post that the Washington DC protest was news here in Australia, but really only of a minor nature. The reason for that was that Australian media does not have large dedicated feeds of their own in the U.S. and any news that they take from the U.S. (in the main) […]

September 18, 2009 by

By Lachlan Markay from NewsBusters After systematically ignoring the outrageous and offensive signs used by leftist protesters at anti-war demonstrations journalists and bloggers are now devoting an immense amount of attention to a small minority of Tea Party protesters carrying signs far outside of the mainstream. Brian Williams and Chris Matthews think the Tea Party […]

By Tom McLaughlin TonyfromOz prefaces ….. Tom makes the point perfectly here. The people who were protesting were just ordinary people, people who have never come out to protest before. These are not radicals. These are not ‘Rent A Crowd’. Just average people who have finally had enough and are not willing to take it […]

By John Armor How many people still listen to NPR (National “People’s” Radio) and take it seriously? Apparently that list doesn’t include the editors and reporters for NPR.
