May 30[edit]

Promoting Death: Analyzing the Language of Euthanasia, Suicide Advocates [1]
Even the most despicable ideas can be made palatable when euphemisms are used to spin them. That's why abortion advocates call themselves "pro-choice" rather than "pro-abortion." It's also why they talk about "terminating a pregnancy" rather than "killing a baby."
Proponents of euthanasia understand the power of language in shaping debate. They use euphemisms like "death with dignity" and "end of life choices" to sugar coat the reality of the killings they have in view.

Leftist actor Sean Penn, the president of the Cannes jury that will pick the best new movie, haplessly demonstrated Hollywood bias by admitting that "you would be surprised to see to what extent questions of a political nature are raised by each of the jury members relating to films or elements of films that on the surface do not appear to have them."[10] Sean Penn is famous for his realistic portrayal of a nitwit in "Fast Times at Ridgemont High."

Laura Ingraham interviews a liberal who protested giving an honorary degree to Phyllis Schlafly:

LAURA INGRAHAM: "...Which conservative, which prominent conservative do you think would deserve an honorary degree at Washington University? Why don't you name a few?"
JILL STROMINGER, PROTESTER, WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY: "Well, I absolutely think that's not the issue, Laura. ... Well, I mean, there are many fabulous choices, like Colin Powell [Note: Colin Powell is not a conservative] ...
STROMINGER: "Laura, you're completely mischaracterizing, you know, what happened and what we were standing against, which is actually part of the reason that we chose to protest Schlafly. Our problem was less her specific viewpoints but more the way that she expresses herself. The way that she mischaracterizes her opponents and how her style of debate changed the debate in such a way that it led people to be oppressed."
INGRAHAM: "Jill, do you or do you not believe in free speech on college campus?"
STROMINGER: "I absolutely believe in free speech, but there's a difference."[32]

The mere mention of "appeasement" apparently sets off paranoid tantrums amongst Democrats.

Walter E. Williams: If there is one clear basic function of government, it's to protect citizens from criminals. We hear calls for stricter gun control laws when what is really needed is more control over criminals. [43]

'Grantsmanship' Distorts Global Warming Science [44]
Scientists have learned therefore that they will be rewarded handsomely by identifying any tangential connection between their favorite studies and "global warming" alarmism. Like Pavlov's dog with a PhD.

With Kennedy as Hook, Couric Rues Inadequate Cancer Spending [45]
"In fact, National Cancer Institute numbers show a 4.4 percent overall budget increase since 2003" "while spending on 'brain & central nervous system' (Kennedy's plight) grew by 33 percent and spending on pancreatic cancer, which killed Couric's sister, rose 75 percent."

Carhart." [48]

White House Challenges NBC News on its Liberal Bias [52]
White House press secretary Dana Perino said the Bush administration is "fed up with the way that the President's policies are being mischaracterized, or the situations on the ground weren't being accurately reflected in the reporting." [53]
White House Counselor Ed Gillespie said "deceitful editing to further a media-manufactured storyline is utterly misleading and irresponsible." Gillespie also mentions the "blatantly partisan talk show hosts like Christopher Matthews and Keith Olbermann at MSNBC." [54]

Senator Edward M. Kennedy (D-MA) has received a grim diagnosis and even grimmer prognosis. The diagnosis: malignant glioma,[55], which is typically inoperable. The prognosis: between one and five years.[56]

Dr. Renato C. Nicolai says "Politically conservative parents have an even greater problem with today's schools that are totally in the grip of unions with a demonstrative leftist agenda. The terms multiculturalism, modernism, diversity, secular humanism, individual self-expression, moral relativism, and political correctness identify the secular-progressive."

Gay values? Jim McGreevey, the New Jersey governor who resigned in 2004 by stating that he is a "gay American," "owes a prior divorce lawyer at least $116,000 and has not paid his first ex-wife any child support this year," and now claims "he's too poor to pay alimony" to his second ex-wife. Yet "McGreevey earned $429,000 in 2006 and $185,000 last year."[77]

Congratulations to "Dr." Phyllis Schlafly. She said about the disrespectful liberals, "I'm not sure they're mature enough to graduate."

"Next week, an Ohio House committee will vote on a bill that will help stop women from being pressured or forced into a decision to have an abortion."[91]

California Supreme Court oversteps its authority:

  • "...a bare majority of this court, not satisfied with the pace of democratic change, now abruptly forestalls that process and substitutes, by judicial fiat, its own social policy views for those expressed by the People themselves. Undeterred by the strong weight of state and federal law and authority, the majority invents a new constitutional right, immune from the ordinary process of legislative consideration."

Media bullying continues to try to force Hillary Clinton out of the race, even though she trounced Barack Obama in the swing states and leads in the delegate count (including Michigan and Florida): the Rasmussen Polls will soon stop tracking the Clinton v. Obama race and simply pretend that Obama won it.[98]

In response to the California Supreme Court decision mandating same-sex marriage licenses, John McCain's campaign said he "supports the right of the people of California to recognize marriage as a unique institution sanctioning the union between a man and a woman, just as he did in his home state of Arizona. John McCain doesn't believe judges should be making these decisions." [99]

Given the recent release of the movie Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed, Conservapedia is making the Conservapedia atheism article the Conservapedia article of the year. Stay tuned for future developments in regards to Conservapedia's atheism article.

No academic freedom for Black women?

  • "A black employee of the University of Toledo (UT) was suspended on Friday after expressing offense at a local newspaper editor's comparison of discrimination against African Americans with discrimination against actively homosexual persons, noting that homosexual behavior is freely chosen in a way race is not." [121]
  • The author of the editorial she critiqued opposed the woman's firing: "The university operates in an atmosphere of idea exchange, and while I recognize the institution's desire to distance itself from her, this is a basic free speech issue and I am disappointed she has been punished for expressing her views." [122]

Professor values: "We are ashamed of the actions of this administration," declares more than 200 professors and students at a college less liberal than most, where President George W. Bush is scheduled to give the commencement address. [123]

...But in what could be a better set of professor values, one professor thinks Biblical stories are better than Greek mythology for psychotherapy: [124]

Oh, how liberals love their media icons. At Northwestern University law school, the commencement speaker this week is ... Jerry Springer! Outraged students expressed "'a deep sense of anger, embarrassment and surprise' that the speaker would be 'the sensationalist, ratings-seeking, instigator of daytime television.'"[125]

The Milton Friedman Prize for Advancing Liberty is awarded to 23-year-old student Yon Goicoechea, who has courageously opposed the autocratic policies of leftist Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez despite suffering violent assault and intimidation. [126] Congratulations, Yon!

Kay Bailey Hutchison

Texas Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison has proposed a realistic solution: the Domestic Energy Production Act of 2008. Her bill would permit exploitation of more than a trillion barrels of U.S. territorial oil and nearly 600 trillion cubic feet of natural gas – more than the combined hydrocarbon reserves of Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Nigeria, Venezuela, Libya and Iran. The measure would also streamline the process for building new refineries and clean, safe nuclear power plants, as well as funding to develop alternative fuels.

Sharpton's Baggage: Nearly $1.5M in Unpaid Taxes, Penalties [147]

Official confirmation of a Conservapedia insight of eight months ago, when we criticized the planned sculpture of Martin Luther King, Jr. for the D.C. mall: "The U.S. Commission of Fine Arts thinks 'the colossal scale and Social Realist style of the proposed statue recalls a genre of political sculpture that has recently been pulled down in other countries.'"[148][149]

More Hollywood values: "Three days after police arrested [rapper] DMX on May 6 for a January drag race caught on camera, the rapper was taken into custody again, this time on drug and animal cruelty charges." [150]

Another Conservapedia insight confirmed: girls are injured in sports at much higher rates than boys. A girl's soccer team "with 18 players, had suffered eight A.C.L. tears — eight — during her high-school years. ... The rate of concussions sustained by high school girls who play soccer is 1.5 times the rate for boys who play soccer." [151] See point #6 in liberal denial, under "more generally."

Conservapedia insight confirmed: On Jan. 27th, we criticized Harvard's decision to have J.K. Rowling as its commencement speaker shortly after she catered to the homosexual agenda. See Our Archives. Over three months later, the Harvard newspaper publishes a similar criticism: "A petty pop culture personality of questionable permanence will send us on our merry way, while figures of real substance wait in the wings." [157] "Our commencement speaker tricked parents into letting their kids read books filled with sex, murder, and homosexual role models."

Public school propaganda and indoctrination: a sixth-grade class writes half-angry, half-sobbing letters to a conservative think tank to say that the think tank's position on global warming is evil. Some of the kids expect to be dead in ten years, from what they write. And we thought school was a place to learn critical thinking. [158]

May 11[edit]

The lid has just blown off the scandal of pornography on Wikipedia. They not only have it on their site; they also celebrate editors who "make outstanding contributions" to this—er—area.[159]

UPDATE: Wikipedia has an image of a nude underage girl in its database. It is an obsolete album cover of an album that issued in 1976, a cover banned in the United States precisely because it suggests an incitement to statutory rape. The FBI is investigating the image and the circumstances of its hosting. Wikipedia could now face prosecution for hosting child pornography.[160]

FURTHER UPDATE: Wikipedia, true to form, has merely nominated the nude underage girl image for deletion. On this project the administration would act at once—but over there, the editors get to debate it, and some of their editors are comparing the FBI to jihadist Muslims to support their votes against deletion.

The Michigan Supreme Court upholds its traditional marriage amendment and prohibits Michigan from encouraging same-sex relationships by offering them benefits.[166]

Individuals with conservative ideologies are happier than liberal-leaners, and new research gives a reason: conservatives do not insist upon a mindless "equality". "Research suggests that highly egalitarian women are less happy in their marriages compared with their more traditional counterparts, apparently because they are more troubled by disparities in domestic labor."[167]

Professor values: "Texas university professors overwhelmingly favor Democratic candidates in their campaign contributions." [168] And Texas is a conservative state!

Hillary Clinton leads Indiana; Barack Obama takes North Carolina. Hillary did better with the late-deciding voters: "Late deciders backed Clinton in Indiana by a margin of 62 percent to 38 percent for Obama.

Materialists invite discrimination based on DNA and also waste taxpayer money by passing a national "DNA warehouse" bill, now signed into law. Only one congressman voted against it: Ron Paul. See [178].

Ben Stein Provokes the Liberal Wrath: The message of Stein's critics comes through loud and clear. They don't want anybody to challenge Darwinian orthodoxy or suggest that intelligent design might be an explanation of the origin of life [179]

The Yahoo search engine ranks Conservapedia's atheism article #4![180] The search engine AltaVista ranks Conservapedia's atheism article #4![181] Conservapedia's atheism article is certainly building up MOMENTUM as can be seen by the view counter at the bottom of the atheism article!

Darwin and Hitler: In Their Own Words [182]
All this doesn’t mean that Darwinism was the sole cause of Hitler’s barbarism. But it does make clear that Darwinism must shoulder its share of the moral burden, because the connection is undeniable.

Defending American Sovereignty and Culture Is NOT Racist [183]

Peter LaBarbera, the President of Americans for Truth is a conservative social commentator who has appeared on hundreds of radio and television programs such as CNN, Fox News, C-Span, National Public Radio in respect to the issue of homosexuality.[184] In addition, Mr. LaBarbera has been quoted by major United States newspapers regarding the subject of homosexuality.[185] Mr. LaBarbera has recently stated the following: "Anyone who has researched the subject of homosexuality knows that many of the most staunch advocates of homosexuality are those who hold a decidedly secular outlook. Conservapedia has an excellent article on atheism with 178 footnotes to many excellent sources. Conservapedia’s well worth reading."[186]

Conservapedian student success: a member of the original "Class of 58" that helped start Conservapedia has won a full scholarship to Liberty University. Congratulations!

Christian apologist and author Michael Caputo has recently stated that Conservapedia's atheism article "Offers enlightening, thorough and energizing facts against atheism". Michael Caputo is author of the 4 out of 5 star rated book at entitled, God Seen Through the Eyes of the Greatest Minds (Mr. Caputo has informed Conservapedia that the aforementioned book was the recipient of two awards).[187] Other Christian apologists (some of whom hold doctorates) are excited as well concerning Conservapedia's atheism article and please stay tuned for upcoming details.

Obama's Stealth Pro-Abortion Stance: America remains widely unaware of Senator Obama's explosive position favoring on-demand convenience abortions for minors, or his equally explosive view of babies as a "punishment." [188]

Europe is now the least Christian and the most secularized and socialized part of the world [189]

Conservative MP Boris Johnson is set to win the election for Mayor of London, ousting leftist Ken Livingstone. Rejoice! [190]

U.N.'s World Food Program Cried Poverty While Sitting on Cash Stockpile of More Than $1.22 Billion [191]

When Gasoline Reaches $5.00 per Gallon, blame the Liberals! [192]
Environmentalists have all but shut down domestic oil exploration and production for almost 40 years now. They have also outlawed the expansion of refining capacity for the same period, ever since Jimmy Carter was president.

The ACLU assembles a terrorist legal defense force that includes former Attorney General Janet Reno and former Federal Bureau of Investigation Director William Webster [193]

Rioters stop a speaker at Smith College from talking on the "Gay Gene Hoax." The gay agenda thereby advances in its attempts to censor free speech. [194]

DNA Similarities Don't Prove Evolution [195]
It is only fair that evidence supporting intelligent design or creation be presented to students alongside of evolutionary theory, especially in public schools which receive funding from taxpayers who are on both sides of the issue.

Hamas, ex-president Jimmy Carter's new friends, state that the Holocaust happened because the Jews themselves devised it to exterminate the disabled and handicapped among them so they wouldn't be a burden to the future State of Israel: [196]

While the longest-serving black political prisoner was being tortured in Cuba, Rev. Jeremiah Wright was praising his jailers: [197]

Professor values at Northwestern University: the school withdraws its offer of an honorary degree to Jeremiah Wright, but claims its decision is not based on his views! [198] Apparently that school does not think lying is wrong.

picture taken by a Conservapedian Wednesday afternoon of Columbia University

Conservapedia was at Columbia University in New York to hear Phyllis Schlafly speak on Conservatism, the ERA and feminism. (Administrators in attendance included Aschlafly, User:CPWebmaster and two others.)

Phyllis Schlafly spoke at Columbia University to around 60 students, responding to questions from a liberal moderator; then she took questions from the audience.

She started the Conservative movement with study groups when no one but Barry Goldwater was willing to call themselves a conservative. Getting him nominated to the Republican ticket is what brought about her first book. "Politics is a lot of tedious work, but conventions are fun." A book by an unknown Illinois housewife sold 3 million copies. This in an age of "me too" Republicans, what we call nowadays RINO (Republicans In Name Only).

She spoke against women in the military and gender norming. She said ERA would remove laws that protect women. She pointed out that "what women want" is not the same as what feminists want, e.g., abortion, ERA, gay rights, and universal daycare. She spoke against the idea that women are oppressed by this patriarchal society (mothers are expected to look after their babies) and that government should take this burden off their back.

She spoke of the change in the feminist movement when it embraced "the lesbians", to embarrassed student laughter. She spoke against gay marriage, pointing out its obvious (but denied) connection to ERA. She spoke against Ruth Bader Ginsburg's "wrong point of view" (her equality principle) by which she opposes the Mann Act but supports co-ed prisons; Ginsburg hates the word "dependent", which informs the Social Security system: a retired man's dependent wife gets 50% while he lives, then 100% on his death.

She denied the social construct view of sex differences, mentioning John Stossel's reports on the intrinsic differences between boys and girls, men and women.

Columbia University students were a class act, complimenting the speaker despite some fundamental disagreements. The students enjoyed several laughs with the speaker, such as this exchange: Student question: "Do you think a woman can be President? Answer: Yes, Margaret Thatcher was a fine leader. But it has to be the right woman. She has to be likable!"

The governors of all 50 U.S. states as well as the Virgin Islands have signed proclamations for the 57th annual National Day of Prayer on May 1. This day lawfully cherishes and respects the religious heritage of the U.S. and encourages all Americans to invoke God’s protection and guidance over the nation. [199]

Phyllis Schlafly's Advice to College Students: Don't Major in English [200]
English departments are the most radicalized of all departments, more so than sociology, psychology, anthropology, or even women's studies.

A Christian ministry in Canada is suffering the effects of the homosexual agenda. Now the ministry has to pay a former homosexual employee $23,000 in fines plus two years wages and benefits. The Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario also ordered that the organization abandon its Christian principles barring homosexual behavior and issued mandates that it begin requiring all employees to attend a homosexual oriented “human rights training program.” [201]

Conservapedia surpasses 56 million page views!!!

Sex education leads, through the treacherous sexual pragmatism of politicians and social "experts," directly to contraception, sterilization and abortion. Sex education must be replaced by education in marriage and family; love and truth must replace statistics and risks [202]

The State Department and the Department of Homeland Security has issued guidelines banning the use of "jihad", "mujahedeen" and other Islamic terminology with reference to Islamic terrorism. This move lays bare the ideological prison house of political correctness in which U.S. top policymakers reside [203]

Tempest in a teapot? Hurricane forcaster's global warming views come under fire: Dr. William Gray, a pioneering expert in hurricane forecasting and a tenured professor at Colorado State University was the target of criticism because he refuses to believe in the global warming nonsense: [204]

Cigarette smuggling is generating millions of dollars every year that can be reaching terrorist groups, including Hezbollah, Hamas and Al Qaeda, according to law enforcement sources. In a single case, $100,000 was sent to Hezbollah [205]

Christian apologists on YouTube have definitely taken a liking to Conservapedia's atheism article! A video in defense of Christianity prominently mentions Conservapedia's atheism article.[206] Another Christian member of YouTube has also taken a liking to Conservapedia's atheism article.[207]

The Supreme Court has upheld Indiana's law requiring voters to present government-issued picture identification at the polls, validating Republican efforts to impose a law they say will cut down on voter fraud [208]
No, it’s not racist, xenophobic, or unconstitutional to ask voters for valid ID [209]

Blame Clinton And The Greens For Gas Prices [210]
Big oil is not to blame for the high price of gasoline; the blame must fall squarely in the lap of the environmental extremists who use propaganda and fear-mongering to block the increases in the production of readily available fossil fuels.

"Professor" Barack Obama refuses to debate Hillary Clinton despite her calls for a Lincoln-Douglas style format. His supporters whined that the questions were too tough at the last debate. "Tough questions in a debate are nothing compared to the tough questions you get asked when you are president," Hillary Clinton replied. [211]

57 Unique Benefits of Homeschooling [212]

Christians Under Attack by Government School Bureaucrats [213]
These same school administrators, who rationalize their anti-Christian bias, would never prohibit open displays of Muslim holidays such as Ramadan. In fact, one school district in California has students dress in Muslim garb, pray Islamic prayers, and read the Koran while banning the Bible.
