Will the Mainstream media reject science in favor of their abortion-driven politics? Joe Bottum of First Things asks precisely that, in the wake of the confirmation of the nuclear reprogramming technique for getting embryonic-like stem cells from ordinary human skin. The Wall Street Journal. [2]

Is Wikipedia®'s fundraising drive a massive failure, or do people give to a smear machine? Initially Wikipedia was exceeding 1000 donors per day,[3] but since then donations have fallen to less than 800 per day. In the past its average donation has only been $25, suggesting this drive won't make budget. Recommendation to Wikipedia: you'd attract more donors if you weren't so anti-Christian and anti-American.

UN Coming After Your Wallet to Solve Global Warming U.S. to pay $40 billion

Nuclear reprogramming: The stem cell research field may be revolutionized by a procedure called “nuclear reprogramming.” When genes are inserted into fibroblast skin cells, they lose their specialization. They enter a “pluripotent state,” and can transform into any of 220 cell types found in the human body. The Stanford Daily See embryonic stem cell research.

The United Nations ranks Iceland as the best place to live, knocking the United States down to 12th, even though the economic freedom in the United States gives it the highest per capita income of any large nation. [5]

Conservapedia v Rush on Alexa.png
Conservapedia surpasses Rush Limbaugh in traffic. [7]

Wikipedia editors sabotage the entries of the co-hosts of Fox and Friends because they criticized Wikipedia. Don't think for a moment that those Wikipedia editors believe in free speech. [8]

Think atheistic, elite professors should have more power? A tenured Ivy League professor just admitted that he killed his wife, and then falsely made it look like a burglary. The article did not disclose his religious views, but did say he will receive a light prison sentence "of no more than seven years" for his crime. [9]

U.S. Senator Trent Lott of Mississippi, the No. 2 Republican in the Senate, will announce his resignation effective this year. [10]

"Wikipedia lies to exaggerate the credentials of atheist Richard Dawkins." See Bias in Wikipedia. Rather than donating to Wikipedia, perhaps atheists should give money directly to Dawkins!

Wikipedia seeks donations for a budget that includes $509,000 for the "Office of the Executive Director." [16]

Latest Iowa poll: Rudy Giuliani drops to fourth, while Mike Huckabee surges in popularity:

The Libel Tourist: Silencing Free Speech [26]
The Saudis are trying to squash First Amendment freedom in the US by suing American authors in British courts. It’s called “libel tourism.” In America, someone suing for libel has to show that the statement -- or article or book -- is false. In Britain, it’s just the other way around. The defendant has to prove that what he said or wrote is true.

ACLU deceit in its "'talking points' in case Uncle Harry asks why the ACLU hates Christmas so much: Tell him 'we work year-round to ensure that everyone in America has the freedom to practice their own religion (or no religion) and to keep the government out of religion.'" [27]
In fact, the ACLU destroys "the freedom to" pray in the classroom, and its "keep the government out of religion" means atheism at the expense of overwhelmingly religious taxpayers.

One cannot exaggerate the moral and scientific importance of a breakthrough that allows for research on stem-cell related cures to go forward without destroying human embryos, says the director of a Catholic think tank Father Thomas Berg. [28]

Pilgrim Edward Winslow described the Pilgrims' Thanksgiving in these words: "Our harvest being gotten in, our Governor sent four men on fowling [bird hunting] so that we might, after a special manner, rejoice together after we had gathered the fruit of our labors. They four in one day killed as much fowl as ... served the company almost a week ... Many of the Indians [came] amongst us .... And although it be not always so plentiful as it was at this time with us, yet BY THE GOODNESS OF GOD WE ARE... FAR FROM WANT." [32]

Seattle public schools want a side of political correctness served on your Thanksgiving table [33]
The liberals in Washington State's largest school district sent letters to teachers and other employees suggesting Thanksgiving should be "a time of mourning" for its Native American students.

The Reality of Thanksgiving [34]
"The Pilgrims’ triumph over hunger and poverty at Plymouth Colony can be traced to something more than the charitable gestures of a few local Indians. Rather, it involves their courageous decision to replace a failed, socialistic agricultural system with one informed by the free-market principle of private ownership of property"

Unbeknownst to many Americans, Thanksgiving is yet another legacy of the Biblical heritage that shaped American law and culture over the centuries. The Biblical Roots of Thanksgiving

On November 19, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln inserted "under God" into an already-prepared Gettysburg Address and declared, "That we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain-that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom-and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."

"A new poll released by the Pew Research foundation finds that less than half of African Americans believe life will get better for them. Dr. Alveda King, the niece of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., says that hopelessness found in the black community is because of how abortion is adversely affecting it. ... 'If African Americans feel that life will not get better, I have to believe that abortion is feeding into that hopelessness,'" she said. [39]

"It's cute. It looks like their parents are dragging them to church," Maryland Judge Nichols said about the public school children ordered to appear in court on Saturday to receive the Hepatitis B vaccine,[40] which researchers have found increases the risk of multiple sclerosis threefold.[41] Hepatitis B is not contagious in school, and teachers are not required to receive this vaccine.

History Professor Donald Critchlow's new book, The Conservative Ascendancy, receives a good review by today's New York Times: "The right revived the fortunes of the postwar Republican Party, offering ideas, institutions and grass-roots organization to create an effective coalition, while the radical left, from the 1930s on, has been a burden to the Democratic Party. Coming after Reagan, Bill Clinton captured (and kept) the White House by banishing the far left and moving his party to the right." [42]

Al Gore is like Jim Jones, and we're drinking his Kool-Aid; editorial in the Tennessean by Phil Valentine [44]

"Extreme environmentalists, led by gurus such as Al Gore but supported by a majority of liberal Democrats in Congress, support the goal of radically reducing our use of carbon-based energy. Yet this ban on human industry, transportation, and home-heating would not reverse current trends toward global warming."
"What will reverse them, inevitably, is nature’s own cycle of climate change. Over the course of the earth’s history, there have been innumerable periods of warming and cooling" Climate Change 2.0

Liberal Education Values: New York University (NYU) students would sell their votes! [45]
That's what NYU students said they'd do, a recent survey found. The class - "Foundations of Journalism", taught by left wing Journalism Dept. Chair Brooke Kroeger - polled more than 3,000 undergrads to assess student attitudes toward voting. 20% percent said they'd exchange their vote for an iPod touch! 66% said they'd forfeit their vote for free tuition to NYU. And half said they'd give up the right to vote forever for $1 million! Yes, Liberals are certainly committed to Democracy as much as Conservatives. Not!

McCarthyism: The Rosetta Stone of Liberal Lies [102]
Ann Coulter on Human Events: "Ironically, for all of their love of conspiracy theories -- the rigging of the 2000 election, vote suppression in Ohio in 2004, 9/11 being an inside job, oil companies covering up miracle technology that would allow cars to run on dirt, Britney Spears' career, etc., etc. -- when presented with an actual conspiracy of Soviet spies infiltrating the U.S. government, they laughed it off like world-weary skeptics and dedicated themselves to slandering Joe McCarthy."
"Then as now, liberals protect themselves from detection with wild calumnies against anybody who opposes them. They have no interest in -- or aptitude for -- persuasion. Their goal is to anathematize their enemies. Blacklisted by History removes the curse from one of the greatest patriots in American history."

"As long as liberal programs can be separated from their consistently disastrous consequences by a sufficient period of time, the perpetrators stand a chance of pointing fingers of accusation at one straw dog or another, thereby escaping culpability for the disasters they helped create."
"Thus the abject failures of America's 'education' system are blamed not on the 'politically correct' agenda of the ultra-liberal National Education Association, but on 'insufficient funding.'

Update on that outrageous University of Delaware program teaching that all whites are racist: the President of UDel has stopped the program completely pending "review" in light of all the bad press it has received. Of course he fails to mention that the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education threatened to sue the school if they didn't stop the program. WorldNetDaily. [134]

According to a new study, those MSM organizations which hold themselves up as the most neutral and professional -- big newspapers, the broadcast networks and taxpayer-subsidized National Public Radio -- are actually producing campaign stories that are the most tilted in favor of Democrats and Liberals, while online news and talk radio have actually been the most balanced. The study, released Monday from the Project for Excellence in Journalism (PEJ) and Harvard's Shorenstein Center, found newspapers and broadcast TV outlets devoted far more time to covering the Democratic candidates than the Republicans and that the tone of those stories was much more favorable to the Democrats. If you think you missed the coverage of this important study, don't worry, you didn't. Another glaring example of Liberal Deceit. [144]

The University of Delaware tells students: 'All whites are racist!' That is one of many "lessons" that UDel Resident Assistants (RA's) are trained to beat into the heads of on-campus resident students. (George Orwell, call your attorney! UDel might be guilty of plagiarism.) That might be why most UDel students live off-campus. The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education is investigating and threatening legal action--and they'd have a significant Supreme Court precedent on their side. WorldNetDaily. [146]

Mike Huckabee defends his record as a conservative:
"BLITZER (CNN): Phyllis Schlafly is critical of you and she's a conservative -- very conservative. You are being criticized by the conservatives, by the liberals, but she said this in The Wall Street Journal on Friday: "He destroyed the conservative movement in Arkansas and left the Republican Party a shambles, yet some of the same evangelicals who sold us on George W. Bush as a compassionate conservative are now trying to sell us on Mike Huckabee." Does she have a point as far as your record in Arkansas is concerned?

HUCKABEE: You know, I love Phyllis Schlafly. In fact, her book, "It's a Choice, Not an Echo," was a great influence on me when I read it as a teenager. And I'm not going to say anything unkind about this lady who has been such a stalwart in the conservative movement. Rather than say, hey, you know, I think Phyllis is wrong, I think Phyllis has just been misinformed. Because she's a good and decent lady who is very principled.
But here's the fact. When I came into office as governor, we had 11 House members out of 100 who were Republican. By the time I left, we had had 30. We had appointees all over the place. We had elections that were won. My PAC that I established gave more money to Republican candidates in Arkansas than did the state party. You know, I worked hard for the party. It's a tough environment. I've been against the headwinds of a very tough, Clinton-led political machine in this state.
But you know what I've done that no other Republican running for president has done? I've beat that political machine of the Clintons, the Democrat Party, not once, not twice, not three times, but four times in statewide elections, something nobody else has been able to do.
The Clintons campaigned against me every time I ran, always cordially and respectfully, but they campaigned against me, and I still won in a state that is overwhelmingly, maybe outfitted, if you will, with Clintonistas."
