Obama’s Greenbacks from Code Pink

IF THE MEDIA WERE COMPETENT, THE NAME JODIE EVANS would be as well-known as Jeremiah Wright. According to Ralph Nader’s Public Citizen, Evans has bundled “at least $50,000” in donations for Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign. “Bundling” is a process in which people turn over a large number of “individual” political contributions as a group, in the hope of exerting greater influence if their candidate … [Read more...]

Dancing with the Devil

IF NOTHING ELSE CAME OUT OF YESTERDAY’S SPEECH AT THE UN, we now know what is on Venezuelan proto-fascist Hugo Chavez’s reading table. “Noam Chomsky, and this is one of his most recent books, Hegemony or Survival: The Imperialist Strategy of the United States,” he said, hoisting the tome aloft at the podium. “I will just leave it as a recommendation.” His Chomsky citation merely proves what … [Read more...]

The Fifth Column’s Return to Iraq

TO FIND PEOPLE WHO HATE AMERICA AS MUCH AS THEY DO, the Fifth Column Left had to go halfway around the world to meet with Iraqi political leaders who call terrorism “honorable national resistance” and say foreign jihadists “are guaranteed Paradise” – and at least one of whom has ties to militia leader Muqtada al-Sadr. By the end of the trip, the American leftists would echo these … [Read more...]

Valerie Plame’s Laughable Lawsuit

Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame – who claims she “risked her life for her country” – filed suit on Thursday against Vice President Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, and Scooter Libby, charging them with violating their First and Fifth Amendment rights; endangering their children’s lives; making them targets of terrorist attacks; ending her CIA career; ruining other financial opportunities; launching a … [Read more...]

The Capitol Police Slap Back

THE FAR-LEFT HAS BEEN GIVING THE CAPITOL POLICE A BEATING, literally and figuratively. This week, the good guys finally stood up for themselves – and the law. The “confrontation” between Rep. Cynthia McKinney, D-GA, and a Capitol policeman grew out of the police force’s kid gloves treatment of another left-wing protester. Although the media focused on her inappropriate attire, police … [Read more...]

Cheapening Coretta Scott King’s Legacy

IF LAURA INGRAHAM WRITES A FOLLOW-UP BOOK, IT SHOULD BE TITLED, SHUT UP AND MOURN! Yesterday, the Left again chose division over reconciliation, bitterness over harmony, and the transient over the transcendent at the funeral of Coretta Scott King. For the third time in as many years, leftists politicized a funeral service. And the most outspoken partisans present were a failed former president and … [Read more...]

Run, Cindy, Run!

MORE THAN A YEAR AGO, MOVEON.ORG BOASTED IT “BOUGHT” THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY; now, apparently, Cindy Sheehan is delivering its marching orders. First, John Murtha jumped on her unilateral surrender bandwagon. Now Dianne Feinstein is delivering Sheehan’s juridical demands. Two weeks ago, Senator Dianne Feinstein, D-CA, had emphatically ruled out filibustering Samuel Alito. On “Face the Nation” on … [Read more...]

Et Tu, Cindy?

The Left’s increasingly unhinged blog DailyKos launched into a scathing rant objecting that Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito dared pay homage to late American hero Rosa Parks: Just a quick question here. Why is it that — from "standing atop the pile" in New York, to the Republican National Convention with a stage explicitly designed to invoke the rubble of the WTC, to the "support the troops" … [Read more...]

The Mayor Who Failed His City

IT’S OFFICIAL: THE AMERICAN LEFT NOW BELIEVES GEORGE W. BUSH IS GOD. Bellowing leftists such as Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Cindy Sheehan have blamed Hurricane Katrina – something insurance companies classify as an act of God – on President Bush’s “killing policies” (and, in RFK Jr.’s case, those of Mississippi’s Republican governor, Haley Barbour). Former Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal also penned … [Read more...]

American Nazi Idol

LAST NIGHT THERE WERE 1,500 CANDLELIGHT VIGILS FOR CINDY SHEEHAN AND ONE BURNING CROSS. Sheehan has become the poster girl for the antiwar Left, because her status as a grieving mother renders the 48-year-old Vacaville, California, native more sympathetic than Medea Benjamin, Ramsey Clark, or Michael Moore (whose website hosts Sheehan’s blog). However, neo-Nazis, Klansmen, and racist … [Read more...]
