Associate attorney general under Clinton: President had legal authority to OK taps...
When many were counting the mainstream media irrelevant, the New York Times proved its ability to frame the political debate, undermine national security, and possibly force Americans to lose the War on Terror. The Gray Lady held a story about the Bush administration’s authorizing the National Agency to wiretap international phone calls involving al-Qaeda agents, even if one of the parties lived in the United States[note citizenship not the operative term], for more than a year, releasing the topic to promote a book written by Times reporter James Risen. This – happily, from the NYT’s point of view – coincided with the weekend the Senate was to debate the Patriot Act, resulting in a Democratic filibuster. Although the Bush administration appears to have done nothing illegal (see Ben Johnson’s story on that topic in this issue), the Times has teamed up with the American Civil Liberties Union to keep this story alive by adding a “new” story: the ACLU claims the Bush administration is spying on American leftists.

1st Amendment 'doesn't create church-state wall of separation'Court whacks civil-liberties group, OKs Ten Commandments display
A U.S. appeals court today upheld the decision of a lower court in allowing the inclusion of the Ten Commandments in a courthouse display, hammering the American Civil Liberties Union and declaring, "The First Amendment does not demand a wall of separation between church and state."
Attorneys from the American Center for Law and Justice successfully argued the case on behalf of Mercer County, Ky., and a display of historical documents placed in the county courthouse. The panel voted 3-0 to reject the ACLU's contention the display violated the Establishment Clause of the Constitution. (more)

Judge rules against 'intelligent design' Pennsylvania case among biggest since 1925 Scopes trial --Associated Press
Text of Dover 'intelligent design' statement:

"The Pennsylvania Academic Standards require students to learn about Darwin's theory of evolution and eventually to take a standardized test of which evolution is a part.
"Because Darwin's theory is a theory, it continues to be tested as new evidence is discovered. The theory is not a fact. Gaps in the theory exist for which there is no evidence. A theory is defined as a well-tested explanation that unifies a broad range of observations.
"Intelligent design is an explanation of the origin of life that differs from Darwin's view. The reference book, 'Of Pandas and People,' is available in the library along with other resources for students who might be interested in gaining an understanding of what intelligent design actually involves.
"With respect to any theory, students are encouraged to keep an open mind. The school leaves the discussion of the origins of life to individual students and their families. As a standards-driven district, class instruction focuses upon preparing students to achieve proficiency on standards-based assessments.

Left-Leaning Media?
The majority of mainstream media tilts to the left... that according to a revised study by UCLA, set for publication next week. Among the findings: The Wall Street Journal, despite its conservative opinion pages, is the most liberal outlet, followed by CBS' Evening News, The New York Times, and the Los Angeles Times.
In fact, of the 20 major media outlets studied, 18 of them scored left-of-center. Programs ranked among the most centrist news shows include The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer and ABC's Good Morning America. Fox found the most centrist.
The study examines U.S. media coverage over the last 10 years, comparing individual news outlets with individual lawmakers. Lawmakers were scored on the basis of votes and speeches, while media organizations were scored on their references to think tanks and policy groups.
Hurricane Hit All
Nearly as many wealthy people died in New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, as did poor people, according to an analysis by the Los Angeles Times. While many of the bodies remain unidentified, findings show that of the 528 bodies recovered from identifiable addresses throughout the city, 230 came from middle and upper class neighborhoods the city's poorer areas accounted for 298 bodies. The analysis discounts claims that low-income residents were hit hardest by the hurricane.
Research conducted by Tulane University geographer Richard Campanella, who is quoted by the Times, suggests that New Orleans' predominantly white districts were just as vulnerable as predominantly black districts. A spokesman for the Louisiana Population Data Center associates Katrina's widespread effects with the city's diversity.

A global survey released today from Freedom House shows that the Arab Middle East saw a modest but significant increase in political rights and civil liberties this year. The survey — dubbed Freedom in the World — shows the number of countries rated as “Not Free” dropping from 49 to 45, the lowest number in over a decade.
And freedom grew worldwide with 27 countries showing gains and only 9 countries experiencing setbacks. Arch Puddington, director of research at Freedom House says, "The global picture thus suggests that 2005 was one of the most successful years for freedom since Freedom House began measuring world freedom in 1972."

The Media’s Top 10 Economic Myths of 2005

GOP Congressman to Fox: 'Shut Up'
by Robert B. Bluey
Posted Dec 15, 2005

U.S. Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R.-Ariz.) said Thursday that Mexican President Vicente Fox should “shut up” about his opposition to a proposed U.S.-Mexico border fence.

Fox on Wednesday called the idea of a fence “disgraceful and shameful.”

“I’m going to step away from diplomatic rules and offer President Fox some straight talk: President Fox should shut up,” Hayworth told HUMAN EVENTS. “He should shut up about all of this because he is only fanning the flames of poor relations between our two nations. He needs to cease and desist.”

Hayworth continued: “What’s disgraceful is President Fox presuming to lecture the United States on how best to protect itself against an invasion -- an invasion that has his wholehearted advocacy. . . . He needs to stop his advocacy of an invasion of his countrymen into our nation. What’s shameful is that, as the president of the Republic of Mexico, he does nothing to stem this invasion. He actively endorses it.”

Jon Stewart Is No Newsman

According to an ABC News/Time magazine survey of 1,700 Iraqi citizens, released in advance of historic parliamentary elections on Thursday, “surprising levels of optimism prevail in Iraq,” according to ABC’s polling director, Gary Langer. “Despite the daily violence there, most living conditions are rated positively, seven in 10 Iraqis say their own lives are going well, and nearly two-thirds expect things to improve in the year ahead.”

Of course, those optimistic Iraqis don’t watch ABC, CBS and NBC every night. A new Media Research Center study of network evening news coverage of Iraq during October and November found the networks maintained the same negative approach our team found during a review of Iraq news during the first nine months of 2005. In spite of a successful constitutional referendum in October, the start Saddam’s trial for mass murder, successful U.S. offensive campaigns along the Syrian border and the return of a number of cities and town to full Iraqi control, the networks continued to offer mainly downbeat coverage of the situation in Iraq
If they do this to Iraq, imagine the influence their negative reporting has on US citizens concerning domestic issues.

Morgan Freeman Blasts Black History Month

Morgan Freeman says the concept of a month dedicated to black history is "ridiculous."

"You're going to relegate my history to a month?" the 68-year-old actor says in an interview on CBS' "60 Minutes" to air Sunday (7 p.m. EST). "I don't want a black history month. Black history is American history."

Freeman notes there is no "white history month," and says the only way to get rid of racism is to "stop talking about it."

Amen Mr. Freeman, amen!

The angry democrats originally supported a
war against Saddam when Clinton used it to fend off
Impeachment Hearings for his illegal acts in
office, and now they undermine the war against
terrorism and our troops, and they fight for the
so-called "rights" of the imprisoned muslim terrorists
and have gone so far at to dispatch their former
Democrat Attorney General, Ramsey Clark, to
defend Saddam Hussein in court ... and they do this as
America's sons and daughters are dying on the
battlefield, literally giving their all to prevent
another 9-11 on American soil.

Murtha, Kerry, Kennedy, Durbin, Pelosi, and the
rest of their allies in the mainstream liberal
media should be very proud of themselves …

John Kerry and his mentor, Ted Kennedy, along
with the rest of the conspirators, led the charge to
gut America's intelligence community and defense
establishment for the years leading up to 9/11.
In the final analysis, it is very accurate to
conclude the liberal agenda Kerry, Kennedy, Clinton,
and company pursued resulted in the atrocities
that were 9/11. And they now seek to sabotage the
war against terrorism and turn it into another
"Vietnam" in the Middle East, which would surely
plunge the world into a new Dark Age … and,
unfortunately, they appear well on their way to
achieving their goals … at least if you believe the
propaganda being spewed on the popular talk shows and

But regardless of what the partisans may say or
what polls emerge in the weeks and months ahead,
I trust President Bush will continue to pursue
the muslim terrorists, and continue to present
messages of faith, hope and encouragement, and never
let us forget that Freedom isn't free, and some
things are worth fighting and dying for!

Make no mistake, we are in the fight of our
lives, not only for ourselves, but for the last
vestiges of a civilized world beyond our shores.
This period in our history, in many ominous ways,
resembles the final years of the Roman Empire ...
and as history tells us, the loss of Rome ushered
in the age of the muslim barbarians, which was
appropriately dubbed the "Dark Ages."

Merry Christmas ... and may God bless America!

Hillary Clinton is an extraordinarily successful senator. Everybody says so - including New York voters, 61 percent of whom report in the latest Quinnipiac survey she's doing either a "good" or "great job." However, in the literally hundreds of mainstream media reports touting Hillary's Senate performance, seldom are any of her accomplishments ever listed.

A review of her actual record, however, yields very little evidence to support the "good job" claims.

Simple Question on Iraq Dumbfounds Democrats
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) claimed this week she had not heard the stated position of Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D.-Md.) that it would be a disaster for U.S. troops to withdraw from Iraq—a position that sharply contrasts with her own call for U.S. troops to be removed within six months.

In a written statement released November 30 following President Bush’s speech on the Iraq War at the U.S. Naval Academy, Hoyer said: “I believe a precipitous withdrawal of American forces in Iraq could lead to disaster, spawning a civil war, fostering a haven for terrorists and damaging our nation’s security and credibility. I still believe we can—and that we must—achieve success in Iraq.”

The stark difference between Hoyer’s position and Pelosi’s has been noted in a front-page story in her hometown newspaper, the San Francisco Chronicle, as well as in the Washington Times, the Washington Post, on CNN and on ABC.

But when I asked Pelosi directly to comment on Hoyer’s remarks, she claimed to be ignorant of them, and retreated behind the Democrats’ latest catchword on Iraq: “redeployment.”
