Amnesty International "is accused of 'duping' the singers Christina Aguilera and Avril Lavigne, who have both made statements against abortion and are among contributors to an Amnesty CD released to raise money for survivors of the atrocities in Darfur."[1] Rock for Life, pictured here, also complains about being misled. More liberal deceit?

480px-Alberto Gonzales - official DoJ photograph.jpg

Alberto Gonzales resigns, after months of political witch-hunts on the part of deceitful liberals. President Bush said he reluctantly accepted the resignation of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, whose "good name was dragged through the mud for political reasons." It is customary for top officials (e.g., Karl Rove, Tony Snow) to leave at this time to obtain top private-sector positions.[3]

Is Fidel Castro dead? With so much liberal deceit, it would not surprise anyone if Cuba is lying about even his death. Miami Police "Chief John Timoney said, 'Two nights ago, the head of the FBI called me, at about 11 o'clock at night and said the chatter is stronger and more frequent than usual, so, there is something there.'"[7]

The New York Times' computer system was the source of the pre-election smear on Republicans and Tom DeLay at Wikipedia, calling him the "Grand Dragon" of the Republican Party just prior to the November 2006 elections. How many other liberal smears of conservatives come from the New York Times?

Operation Tiger Claw was my first attempt at leading a protest against the apathy and leftism running rampant at my school. It all started on Friday, May 14th with a small act of conservative pride. My socialist history teacher was on another kick about how articulate Noam Chomsky was, when I finally reached my limit." The pictures tell this story.

School News

  • Public school officials name a new school using the wrong name for a president. But no one is fired, fined, or even reprimanded for this humiliating misnaming of an entire school, which was supposed to be named after James Madison. Instead, it was incorrectly named "James A. Madison." [27]
  • Back to college news: "New safety precautions will greet college students returning to some campuses this fall — part of the legacy of the Virginia Tech massacre in April."[28]
  • Back to school sports news: these states feel compelled to randomly test high school athletes for steroid use:[29][30]

Do parents really think their kids are learning in public schools???

More evidence that Wikipedia allows (if not encourages) smears, libel, and general misinformation and bias in its articles:

"...somebody from a computer traced to Democrat HQ edited a page on conservative American radio host Rush Limbaugh, calling him 'idiotic', 'ridiculous' and labeling his 20 million listeners as legally retarded.'" [41]

"Police said Cornell and Sturtz had long been fascinated by the April 1999 Columbine massacre in Littleton, Colo., in which two students armed with guns, knives and bombs killed 12 classmates and a teacher before killing themselves. Cornell, 18, pleaded no contest to conspiracy to commit homicide, possession of explosives for unlawful purposes and possession of a short-barreled shotgun. Sturtz, 18, pleaded no contest to conspiracy to commit homicide. Netwal, 19, pleaded no contest to conspiracy to damage property with explosives."[45]

Ever wonder why Wikipedia entries are filled with so much junk? This recommendation has been telling people to add lots of filler to entries so that people won't notice the harmful stuff.[49] Is it any wonder that intelligent editors are moving to higher quality sites?


An illegal alien from Peru is charged with the cold-blooded murder of three peaceful youngsters aged 18 to 20 who were "listening to music at the schoolyard."[50]
"Three of them -- Terrance Aeriel, 18, Dashon Harvey, 20; and Iofemi Hightower, 20 -- were forced to kneel against a wall and were shot execution-style."


Ever wonder why schools cost so much? The University of Florida's "student-run speakers bureau, Accent, has offered Jack Kevorkian $50,000 to speak at the university. Kevorkian, an advocate of physician-assisted suicide, has accepted the offer, according to his attorney." Notice how that Ocala news link doesn't tell you that Kevorkian just got of jail a few months ago after serving an 8-year prison sentence for murder...[51] Our school tax dollars at work!

Did Rupert Murdoch take conservatives for ride??? Fox News seems less conservative now, and its ratings have been dropping.[76] Neoconservatives rather than conservatives seem to be running it.[77] Murdoch's New York Post endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2006. Will he do so again in 2008?

Current enrollment in American Government 101 fall free course:
29 students and growing. Begins September.


The most-often reversed court, the Ninth Circuit, won't be reversed this time: In Hurd v. Hansen, it rejected an appeal by a seventh-grade parent unhappy about a grade of "C" in Phys-Ed. The parent alleged that schoolteacher Julie Hansen had violated Brandy Hurd's substantive due process and equal protection rights by giving her a racially biased grade.
More school news:

  • A public school violated a student's free speech rights by disciplining him for creating a parody of his high school principal on the internet. Layshock v. Hermitage School Dist. (W.D.Pa.)
  • A high school student's ten-day suspension for writing about a "dream" she had of shooting one of her teachers did not violate her free speech rights under the First Amendment. Boim v. Fulton County School Dist. (C.A.11 (Ga.)).
  • Four college-bound students were shot execution-style at an elementary school wall, three die.[87]

Prayers welcome for the above. Before Engel v. Vitale, schools, like churches, inspired respect.

GOP 'Obstruction' Highlighted in 'Harry Potter' Video. In a YouTube video promoted by the liberal organization Campaign for America's Future (CAF), "White House advisor Karl Rove is "Lord Rovemort," scheming to undermine the efforts of Senate Majority Leader Harry Potter - er, Reid - to highlight Republican 'obstruction' in Congress". CNSNews story YouTube Video
When the Democrats practiced obstruction in President Bush's first term in office, the liberals at MoveOn.org defended their position: "labelling filibusters as anti-democratic ignores the fact that on some occasions, a minority of senators may actually speak for the majority of the populace, making filibusters a stop-gap against policy-making that does not represent these interests". The Liberals message is a double standard: In 2003 when Republicans are in power, It's ok for the Democratic minority to obstruct, but in 2007 when the Democrats are in power, how dare the Republican minority object.

The case Michael Moore didn't show from Canada: Lindsay McCreith was told by his Canadian universal health care system that he had to wait 4 months for a simple MRI to determine if his brain tumor was benign or malignant. He traveled to Buffalo instead, had the MRI done quickly, found the malignancy, and had an operation to save his life. He'd be dead now if he stayed within his Canadian health care system. Now he's suing to end this injustice in the government-controlled system that Michael Moore praised. See here.
