    The problem with the healthcare debate is that it’s really not even about healthcare anymore. It has evolved. What was once a debate about the Utopian goal of covering millions more people with better care at less cost---a quixotic errand if there ever was one---has given way to the real show: will Obama crack if he fails? The healthcare debate has evolved into a test of wills between a petulant child trying to get his way long after his exasperated parents have said NO. Our young narcissist-in-chief gave a good speech last night, but no less was expected. He gives...

    The shadowy internet group known as Anonymous has hacked into the prime minister's website to protest over proposed internet censorship reforms. An Attorney-General's Department spokesperson confirmed to ninemsn the Prime Minister's website was taken down at 7.25pm last night, but said the site was operational again "within minutes". "Visitors to the site received a service unavailable error," the spokesperson said in a statement. "There was no unauthorised access to site infrastructure." The Australian Communications and Media Authority's website was also affected. A message posted on the Inquisitor website by Anonymous stated that the action was in response to a federal...

    As I watched the tea party protests and crowded town halls, I couldn't help but think of President Reagan. For millions of us, the dismal Carter era sparked a similar political awakening, and Ronald Reagan was the key. He wasn't the source of our new vision, but he knew the source and pointed the way. He understood the trials ahead, and regularly explained them to us. Back then, most young Americans – like so many today – didn't understand what had happened to our country. We didn't fully realize the nature of "liberalism" (especially those of us who were Democrats)...

    Tens of thousands of refugees are fleeing a vicious civil war that threatens to turn the key Arab peninsula state of Yemen into a terrorist stronghold and to suck the US into another sensitive conflict zone. Yemen's Zaidi rebels, allegedly shows members of the group, that is also known as al-Huthis. The Yemeni government is to try to subdue a rebel Shia army in the north of the country. Its assault is meeting fierce resistance, with the Yemeni air force staging desperate forays to pound the rebels into submission. International observers fear that even if the US, long-term ally, can...

    Hillary Clinton is said to be frustrated with her lack of authority as secretary of state and resentful of the glacial pace of the White House vetting process. President Obama's picks fly in even if they didn't pay their taxes. But her picks take forever," noted one Democrat. "Plus, she has no real clout over Holbrooke or Mitchell. Richard Holbrooke is Obama's "special representative" for Afghanistan and Pakistan. George Mitchell is "special envoy" to the Middle East. Clinton is said to be considering quitting to retake her old US Senate seat now held by Kristin Gillibrand-- or running for governor,...

    Deputies and cadaver dogs searched the area thoroughly Tuesday night but found no other body parts at that time. Homicide and coroner's investigators were checking missing persons reports, among other things, to identify the person. The remains were found near a middle school, but Whitmore says there's no reason to be believe there's any connection and students and their parents should not be concerned.

    It is almost irresistible for conservatives to snicker as Democrats in Massachusetts hold hearings and seek ways to justify an attempt to change the law in Massachusetts to allow the Democratic governor of the Commonwealth to appoint a Democratic senator--presumably available to vote for President Obama's initiatives. It was just a few years ago when Senator John Kerry was running for president and the governor was a Republican that the Democratic state legislature thought it imperative to change the law to prevent governors from appointing senators. It is just too delicious, the hypocrisy too obvious, for conservatives to ignore. Yet...

    The press questioned Thursday whether military force should have been used to rescue a journalist held hostage in Afghanistan, after his assistant, two civilians and a British soldier were killed. And the death of a soldier in the raid sparked anger in the army here, the Daily Telegraph said, after claims Farrell brushed aside security advice by venturing into a Taliban stronghold. "When you look at the number of warnings this person had it makes you really wonder whether he was worth rescuing, whether it was worth the cost of a soldier's life," a senior army source told the Telegraph.

  • 'Gay' man sues Bible publisher for 'mental anguish'($10 million- negative toward gays)

    A homosexual man is suing a third national Bible publisher for "mental anguish" after he says the company published Bibles with a negative connotation toward homosexuals. Bradley LaShawn Fowler of Canton, Mich., alleges William Tyndale Publishing manipulated Scripture when it published Tyndale’s New Living Translation Holy Bible and the New Life Application Study Bible by using the term "homosexuals" in a New Testament passage, 1 Corinthians 6:9. "One Bible dictates homosexuals will not inherit the Kingdom of God, while the other is completely void on the issue altogether," Fowler wrote in a statement on his blog.

    After all the rhetoric is put aside, one principle ran through President Obama’s speech tonight: that increased government involvement in health care can solve its problems. Many Americans fundamentally disagree with this idea. We know from long experience that the creation of a massive new bureaucracy will not provide us with “more stability and security,” but just the opposite. It's hard to believe the President when he says that this time he and his team of bureaucrats have finally figured out how to do things right if only we’ll take them at their word.

The United Kingdom's The Sun newspaper reported on Tuesday that the Croatian Football Association is apparently behind the fascist rabble-rousing. According to The Sun, some of the most inflammatory songs by neo-Nazi rocker Marko Perkovic as well as World War II slogans of the Nazi-allied Ustashe regime are chanted by soccer fans at Croatian home games. The national team's manager was said by The Sun to...

    American Thinker ^ | September 09, 2009 | David G. Muller, Jr.
    The classic 20th-century political spectrum is gravely flawed as a depiction of the range of philosophical opinion. The Traditional Political Spectrum The common depiction of the political spectrum traditionally shows communism at the left end, fascism at the right end, and less extreme political systems at various points in between: This depiction of the spectrum, and its nearly universal acceptance as a self-evidently accurate framework, has had a number of adverse corollary effects on political thinking and discourse. Because tyranny is found at the extremes of the spectrum, the socially and politically comfortable place to reside is near the center....

    Human Rights Watch's employment of a man who trades and collects Nazi memorabilia as its "senior military expert" is a "new low" for the organization that frequently criticizes Israel, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's policy director Ron Dermer said Wednesday. Netanyahu's policy director,... "I thought that nothing could top a human rights organization trying to raise money in Saudi Arabia, but I was apparently wrong," said Dermer, referring to HRW's fundraising efforts in the kingdom earlier this year, using its reports against Israel as a sales pitch.
