Retired Sen. Jesse Helms Publishes Memoir - Yahoo! News

- Yahoo! News:

"'I reject that criticism because this is indeed another kind of holocaust, by another name,' he wrote. 'At last count, more than 40 million unborn children have been deliberately, intentionally destroyed. What word adequately defines the scope of such slaughter?'

Helms, 83, writes that when 3,000 people died on Sept. 11, 2001, 'the American people responded with shock, sadness and a deep and righteous anger — and rightly so.

'Yet let us not forget that every passing day in our country, more than three thousand innocent Americans are killed' through abortion."

Not much more to say.

Ambassador Bolton’s Very Exclusive Reception

Arianna - Yahoo! News:

"So John Bolton had a reception at the U.N. ambassador's private residence in the penthouse at the Waldorf Astoria last night. The Washington Times, Fox News, and various other conservatives were invited, but some of the people who weren't included Colum Lynch from the Washington Post and Warren Hoge from the New York Times, both of whom cover the U.N. for their respective papers. If you thought the Bush administration’s cowardice about facing anyone not completely on board was confined to Crawford and the campaign trail, think again."

Good idea, Bolton. Wonder why the rest of the politicians don't do this. Why invite an enemy behind your lines?

Introducing Africa to the West


"Mr Donlan's plan is to create game reserves of a quarter of a million hectares or more in the Great Plains of North America, and populate them with a mixture of native American and alien animals. If returned to grassland (not a stupid idea, as the government now pays farmers large sums not to grow crops on quite a lot of them) the plains could support both grazers and their predators. Beginning gradually on small, private reserves, wild horses, asses and camels would be introduced and biologists could study their effects on the ecosystem. Later, if all had gone well, elephants would be added and finally, to provide predators, big cats. If everything worked on a small scale, the large public nature reserves envisaged as the plan's culmination would then be created. Mr Donlan reckons that the whole process would take about 50 years. “It is important”, as he puts it, “to realise that we're not advocating backing up a van full of cheetahs and kicking them out the door.”"

Ok... Sounds interesting. I should be something that the people in those states should decide, and there should be some limited hunting.

Rocket Fired at 2 U.S. Navy Ships at Port in Jordan

Rocket Fired at 2 U.S. Navy Ships at Port in Jordan - New York Times: "AMMAN, Jordan, Aug. 19 - A rocket was fired early today at two American naval ships docked in southern Jordan, killing a Jordanian soldier and marking the first attack on American military ships in the region in five years, American and Jordanian officials said.
Skip to next paragraph
Abrahan Farajyan/AP

A rocket was fired at the same time from apparently the same area at an airport in a neighboring Israeli port, hitting a stretch of road and wounding a taxi driver, news agencies reported, citing Israeli officials and witnesses. A third projectile was fired at a Jordanian hospital around the southern port of Aqaba but did no damage.

The attack today on the American vessels, the Ashland and the Kearsarge, took place around 8:44 a.m. and missed two naval ships at dock in Aqaba, said Capt. Ryan Fitzgerald of the United States Air Force, a spokesman for the American military command in the Middle East. The tocket flew over the ships and landed on a warehouse at the pier, he said."

And thats about all thats worth reading in the article...

Wonder where they got the mortar.

Editors Ponder How to Present a Broad Picture of Iraq

- New York Times:

"the editors realized that some questions were impossible to answer. For example, she said, the editors understood that it was much easier to add up the number of dead than to determine how many hospitals received power on a particular day or how many schools were built."

Wouldn't it be just an administrative detail to located the new power areas, and the number of new schools? Seems like sitting around, waiting for more American deaths so you can rush out and tell the world that the americans are dying, and this raises questions abut the Bush strategy is easier. Instead of being proactive, the want to be reactive and wait for the death reports.

Hiroshima, Nagasaki & Christian morality

WorldNetDaily: Pat Buchanan

Good Column, but wrong.

In the bible, when the Hebrews entered a land of evil, they obliterated everything, including the Men, Women, Children and livestock. Thats essentially what the Atomic bomb did, just much quicker. And keep in mind that the Japanese initiate the war, not the United States. Comparing the Atomic bombs to the terroists attacking without provocation is simply idiotic.

Radical cleric banned from Britain

Guardian Unlimited

"The radical Muslim cleric Omar Bakri Mohammed was today excluded from Britain, the Home Office said."

He was recieveing state benifits, then they revoked them, so he packed up and left, leaving his wife and kids behind.

"Inayat Bunglawala, of the Muslim Council of Britain, said: "Omar Bakri is unlikely to be missed by the vast majority of British Muslims. With his often very offensive remarks, he has contributed towards the demonisation of British Muslims.""

NARAL Falsely Accuses Supreme Court Nominee Roberts

NARAL Falsely Accuses Supreme Court Nominee Roberts - FactCheck.org:

"An abortion-rights group is running an attack ad accusing Supreme Court nominee John Roberts of filing legal papers “supporting . . . a convicted clinic bomber” and of having an ideology that “leads him to excuse violence against other Americans” It shows images of a bombed clinic in Birmingham , Alabama .

The ad is false."

Yes, Quite simply, it is false. An ad that is just as accurate can be found here.

hehehe... Its just more slander from the left, I think we should be used to it by now, but it still is a shock.

Parent-trap snares recruiters

Parent-trap snares recruiters:

"Jason McCamey, 19, got support from his family when he told them he wanted to join the Marines.

His dad, Don, 46, who had served in the Navy from 1983 to 1986, joined the Pennsylvania Army National Guard shortly after his son enlisted. Jason's younger brother Sean, 17, a high school student, has joined the Army Reserve.

'I taught my boys you should serve your country,' Don McCamey said.

But McCamey is an increasingly rare kind of parent these days.

Jason McCamey said, 'I tried to get a friend to come down [to the Marine recruiter] with me, but his dad wouldn't let him.'"

Apparently the biggest challenge the recuiters face is getting parents to allow their kids to join up. I wonder what the biggest challenge was in the past, or if this is just a recent thing.

Iran to remove seals at atomic plant

Aljazeera.Net -

"Iran is to remove seals placed by the UN nuclear watchdog at a key atomic plant, allowing it to operate at full capacity and raising the stakes in a stand-off with the international community.

The move, on Wednesday, comes as the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) meets in an emergency session to decide on a resolution after Iran resumed uranium conversion activities at the plant on the outskirts of Isfahan."

Iran isen't even trying to be sneaky with this. Its like they have no fear of the UN or the IAEA. I wonder why!

Biblical Pool of Siloam Is Uncovered in Jerusalem


``Scholars have said that there wasn't a Pool of Siloam and that John was using a religious conceit'' to illustrate a point, said New Testament scholar James H. Charlesworth of the Princeton Theological Seminary. ``Now we have found the Pool of Siloam ... exactly where John said it was.''

A gospel that was thought to be ``pure theology is now shown to be grounded in history,''"

News: "Bush was upbeat in his weekly radio address a day after the Labor Department reported the U.S. economy added 207,000 jobs last month, a stronger-than-expected gain.

'Recent economic reports show that our economy is growing faster than any other major industrialized nation,' he said from his ranch in central Texas. "

What are we worried about china for?

London braces for possible 3rd

News | This is London:

"British Transport Police have been targeting specific ethnic groups for 'intelligence-led' stop-and-searches as part of their heightened security measures.

BTP Chief Constable Ian Johnston said that his officers would not 'waste time searching old white ladies'."

Ah, finally someone got smart. Why we search 73 year olds and take the GI Joe gun away from an 8 year old is beyond me. This is how it should be done in the US.
