Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul: "There is something rather amazing about the Internet .... I've been used to delivering a message very similar to what I'm delivering tonight for many, many years and not getting a whole lot of responses. And all of a sudden, there’s a whole generation of people now very excited about hearing about the message of freedom." [1]


"Republican presidential candidate Tom Tancredo announced Monday he won't seek a sixth term in Congress from Colorado next year, saying he has succeeded in making illegal immigration a national issue. But Tancredo said he will continue his long-shot bid for the White House and hinted that if that fails, he would consider running for the Senate."[2]


The liberal media are returning to Presidential candidate John McCain, declaring that "McCain still has a double-digit base of support" and has "seen modest upticks in New Hampshire polls" and "gained some ground in Florida and California as Giuliani's lead narrowed." McCain is scheduled to be on a Sunday news talk show for the third week in a row. [3]


The Left and the Term 'Islamo-Fascism' Human Events [4]
"Students at most universities are almost brainwashed into being leftist -- and the way they are taught to disagree with their political opponents is by using ad hominem attacks. Conservatives are described over and over as mean-spirited, war-loving, greedy, bigoted, racist, xenophobic, Islamophobic, homophobic, sexist, intolerant and oblivious to human suffering." "Such ad hominem labels are the left's primary rhetorical weapons. So when leftist students are actually confronted with even one articulate conservative, many enter a world of cognitive dissonance. That is one reason why universities rarely invite conservatives to speak: they might change some students' minds."

Veropedia presents quality articles taken from Wikipedia, but that totals only 3,768 entries! And to reach that total Veropedia had to improve those entries.


Is Republican Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee "a pro-life, pro-gun liberal"? This article in the Washington Times quotes conservative concerns about Huckabee.


More than 1 in 10 public schools are called a "Dropout Factory" because less than "60 percent of the students who start as freshmen make it to their senior year." [7] Atheistic schools at work.


A columnist for the liberal San Francisco Chronicle refers to "the hordes of easily terrified, mindless fundamentalist evangelical Christian lemmings" who he claims "have been bad for the soul of this country." But wait, his point is that the other products of public schools are even worse. "We are, as far as urban public education is concerned, essentially at rock bottom. We are now at a point where we are essentially churning out ignorant teens who are becoming ignorant adults and society as a whole will pay dearly, very soon ...." American kids, dumber than dirt; Warning: The next generation might just be the biggest pile of idiots in U.S. history


Seattle Times article reveals religious bigotry: "Tim Burgess is the ideal candidate for Seattle city politics. Except for one very big thing." He has faith in Jesus Christ. [8]


Protesters shout down anti-Islam speaker at MSU' Lansing State Journal
- "When British Nationalist Nick Griffin took the podium at a Michigan State University event, he tried to explain how Islam is a threat to Western civilization. Protesters wouldn't have it. Hurling obscenities and using chants to interrupt his address, rambunctious student organizations forced Griffin to abandon his speech and allow an informal question and answer session." No matter what his politics or positions on other matters, why is fascism, denial of free speech, only allowed to be practiced against non-liberal POV's? And here, they were not shouting down the speaker for his past Holocaust Denial, but for rightfully speaking out against Islamic fascists.

This was not an isolated incident, either. The same thing happened to Jim Gilchrist at Columbia University. [9]


There is a drug abuse epidemic at atheistic public schools:

  • Two students were busted for bringing crack cocaine to Case High School in Racine, Wisconsin. Asked if students were surprised, one replied, "I don't think it is a dirty secret. I think it is well known by the student population.” [10]
  • Omaha elementary public school teacher pled guilty to having heroin at school [11]
  • A Wisconsin school board has expelled four students for drugs in the first seven weeks of public school [12]
  • Public school coach sentenced to jail for giving cocaine to student, which caused her death. [13]

Christian Groups Claim Pro-Atheist 'Stealth Campaign' in Nicole Kidman Fantasy Film 'The Golden Compass' Fox News [14]
"'These books denigrate Christianity, thrash the Catholic Church and sell the virtues of atheism,' said Bill Donohue, president and CEO of the Catholic League."

Atheist Wrote 'Golden Compass' to Dupe Children The Conservative Voice
The Golden Compass is a book-turned-movie to open during the Christmas season (December 7). "It is an atheist’s apologetic for the Devil. Philip Pullman, English non-believer, wants to nix C. S. LewisNarnia influences by putting out this demonic enhancing trilogy, 'His Dark Materials."'

An atheist's 'Narnia' knockoff WorldNetDaily [15]
"We urge people of faith and values not to corrupt their children with the odious atheistic worldview of "The Golden Compass." Instead, there are plenty of good movies this Christmas, such as "Enchanted," that will build and not destroy values."

Far From Narnia 'The New Yorker
'"Peter Hitchens, a conservative British columnist, published an article about Pullman entitled 'This Is the Most Dangerous Author in Britain,' in which he called him the writer 'the atheists would have been praying for, if atheists prayed.'”


The Mother of All Tax Hikes on Small Businesses Townhall
"Small businesses are the engine of job creation in the economy." "The Rangel tax reform bill takes direct aim at America’s job-creators. It would raise the maximum marginal tax rate on all small business incomewages, distributions, capital gains, dividends." "In addition to the tax rate increase, the bill also eliminates several tax provisions small businesses rely on in order to remain competitive." "... it does nothing to prevent the expiration of the Bush tax rate cuts" "Small and closely-held U.S. exporters take a hit too. The Rangel bill would repeal the last export tax benefit in the tax code."
"The Rangel plan moves our tax code in the wrong direction, and it sends exactly the wrong signal to those firms who have made a decision to invest and create jobs in this country."


Where's the Freedom of Speech? The Conservative Voice
"Conservative speakers on American universities need security and often come under physical attack from the mentally unhinged mobs of the left." "Then there's talk radio, and more specifically Rush Limbaugh." "So if they can't get rid of one man why not get rid of all talk radio. Not only will they finally get rid of Rush Limbaugh, they will get Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, Laura Ingraham, and all the others by bringing back the 'Fairness Doctrine' which is fair only to the left."

Funding Global Warming Hysteria NewsBusters [16]
The Center for Climate Strategies coordinates the hysteria and "promotes onerous regulations, property rights infringement through smart growth initiatives, and new taxes and fees on fuels and utilities." "Several foundations on the global warming panic train: the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, The (Ted) Turner Foundation, The Heinz Endowments, the Energy Foundation, and many others."
Original article at the Seattle-Post-Intelligencer Be wary of climate policy development


After an overwhelming victory at the Value Voter Summit, Mike Huckabee's nationwide poll numbers move in front of Mitt Romney's according to the nation's most accurate polling service.[17]


Chemistry professor Homer Jacobson retracts 52-year-old article rather than let it stand as evidence for creation. Homer Jacobson, in 1955, published an article on the chemistry of the early earth. Now that creationists have cited his article as undermining the claim that life developed by accident, he suddenly has found "errors" in the article and wants to take it back. International Herald-Tribune. October 25, 2007.[18]

Congress Urged to Halt $300 Million in taxpayer funds to Planned Parenthood. More than 60 leaders from across the country called on Congress Thursday to suspend over $300 million in annual taxpayer funding to the nation's biggest abortion provider. According to a complaint filed in Kansas's Johnson County District Court last week, Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri is accused of 29 counts of performing "unlawful late-term abortions," 29 counts of "unlawful failure to determine viability for late-term abortion, 23 felony counts of "making false information and 27 counts of "unlawful failure to maintain records. Founded by a racist, many minority leaders have spoken out against Planned Parenthood's apparent racial infanticide.[19]


Poor Planned Parenthood? Human Events [20]
"As much as liberals decry major corporations that act as if they're above the law, there's always quiet when the subject is Planned Parenthood, America's No. 1 corporate provider of abortions."


Sen. Inhofe Slams Gore and Climate Alarmism in Historic Two Hour Speech[21]
Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla.), the Ranking Member of the Environment and Public Works Committee said, "... climate alarmism has become a cottage industry in this country and many others, but a growing number of scientists and the general public are coming around to the idea that climate change is natural and that there is no reason for alarm."

Republicans Have Reason to Smile Human Events [22]
"Defeating SCHIP and the DREAM Act, and good reports for Iraq could mean things are looking up for conservatives."


D'Souza: Debunking Atheists David Limbaugh on Human Events [23]
David Limbaugh says "My goal here is to convince as many of you as possible to read Dinesh D'Souza's compelling new book, 'What's So Great About Christianity.'"


Who was fooled by Senator Sam Brownback? He just came close to endorsing Rudy Giuliani for president. After meeting with Giuliani, Brownback says he is "much more comfortable now that I understand the mayor’s position." [24]


"40 percent of public high school students are the victims of crime every year" and "half-a-million incidents of violence occur every month."[25] Atheism at work with our tax dollars!

More nutty Liberal deceit: California infernos are Bush's fault!!
Democrat Senators Harry Reid (D-NV) blames Global Warming and Barbara Boxer (D-CA) Blames the Iraq War. Say what you will about Democrats, if significant human misery and loss of property is involved, they will always seek to score cheap political points by blaming the Bush Administration. Rather than coming together as Americans, to help other Americans during times of crisis, the first reaction of Democrats is to vent their pathological hatred of George W. Bush. So far, no leading Democrat has accused President Bush of actually starting the California wildfires. But they are no doubt working on that very angle, 24/7 now that the blazes have been ruled arson.[26] Talk about your Liberal Hysteria!


Liberal Deceit: Media Pushes Idea of Bad Economy - In Republican Administrations NewsBusters [27]
"The U.S. economy by most markers is performing admirably. According to the National Bureau of Labor Statistics, we have had 49 consecutive months of job growth. Unemployment is at a historic low of 4.7 percent, the average number of jobs created is holding steady at around 100,000 per month and real after-tax personal income has increased by 12.5 percent. Yet, according to a CNN poll [28], half of Americans think the country is in a recession."
Larry Elder writes at TownHall.com: [29], the reason can be found in the way that the media portray the economy. And that portrayal differs dramatically when a Republican is in office as opposed to a Democrat."
"Like so much else occurring under this Administration, the media cannot or will not report the good news, whether it be the dramatic drop in violence in Iraq, the success in bringing North Korea back to the bargaining table, the lack of attacks against this country since September 11, 2001 and the booming economy. The media , like much of the Democratic Party, has invested too much into the defeat of this Administration and the election of a Democrat to the White House to allow anything that might upset that program to see the light of newsprint."


Public high school dropout rates soar, with the rate in Detroit between "60 percent and more than 70 percent, depending on the method of analysis." But guess what? "It's easier for schools to let students drop out. They figure those students drag down their test scores and attendance rates ...." [30]


"Dumbledoring Down the Culture"[31]


Amnesty Bill (DREAM Act) fails, falling 8 votes short of cloture in the Senate.[32]


Liberal Antioch College "doesn't grade classes, encourages students to develop their own study plans and combines academic learning with experience through a co-op program in which students leave campus to work in various fields. ... In 2000, death row inmate Mumia Abu-Jamal, who was convicted of killing a Philadelphia police officer, gave a taped commencement address at students' invitation." The result? The college plans to close because of declining enrollment. [33]

October 26

Liberal Meltdown Human Events [34]
"They are flailing. And the amusing consequence is seeing them doing exactly what they accused Bush of doing: shutting down their own agitators and telling them to watch what they say."


Law of the Sea Treaty would swamp U.S. legal system Phyllis Schlafly at Human Events [35]
"This case is dramatic proof of why the U.S. Senate should not ratify any more U.N. treaties that put U.S. law in the noose of foreign tribunals."

Nobel Prize proves its liberal bias: the winner is Al Gore!
The Nobel Prize Committee, which awarded terrorist and homicide bomber sponsor Yassir Arafat the Prize in 1994, has awarded Al Gore [88] the honors for 2007.


The dishonest MSM is using the occasion to proclaim Gore's prize as yet another referendum on the 2000 election, and even U.S. Iraq policy! [89] Evidently the Nobel Committee didn't see the recent ruling by a United Kingdom judge, who said the film was riddled with inaccuracies. One of the problem areas included an assertion that the sea would rise up to 20 feet "in the near future" as ice in Greenland or Western Antarctica melts. The judge said this was an alarmist statement. He added that scientific consensus held that that kind of sea level rise would be possible if Greenland's ice melted, but that that melt would happen "after, and over, millennia". In what is a rare judicial ruling on what children can see in the class-room, Justice Barton was at pains to point out that the “apocalyptic vision” presented in the film was politically partisan and not an impartial analysis of the science of climate change. [90]This is more proof of Liberal Hysteria.

In a recent interview tied to the release of his new book, My Grandfather's Son, Thomas said that the treatment he received was really about abortion and the lengths to which the deceitful Liberal pro-choice lobby will go to keep a pro-life justice off the Court.
He writes that he had grown up fearing the Ku Klux Klan’s lynch mobs but “my worst fears had come to pass not in Georgia, but in Washington, D.C., where I was being pursued not by bigots in white robes but by left-wing zealots draped in flowing sanctimony.” Fox News Channel

President George W. Bush Condemns Burma Government

Ongoing pro-Democracy riots continue to grip Burma, with widespread involvement of the Buddhist Clergy. President George W. Bush Thursday condemned the Myanmar government's crackdown on protesters and urged China to use its influence in the region to find a peaceful end to the standoff.

"The world is watching the people of Burma take to the streets to demand their freedom, and the American people stand in solidarity with these brave individuals. We feel admiration and compassion for the Monks and peaceful protesters calling for democracy," President Bush said. The Bush Administration has reacted swiftly to support the growing demands for Democracy by passing tough trade sanctions and credit restrictions against the Burmese regime. President Bush called for all supporters of Democracy to offer prayers for the Burmese people.

Security forces swept through Myanmar's main city Thursday, killing nine people including a Japanese journalist, and arresting hundreds more in a brutal crackdown on anti-government protests.
