Malicious Attack on General Petraeus: An Insult Too Far?
To hear gushing members of the mainstream media and
arse kissing Clintoshills tell it, the Clintons represent a political
incarnation who can be described only by conjuring up a collective image
composed of the steely probity of George Washington, the democratic
brilliance of Thomas Jefferson, the biblical righteousness of Abraham
Lincoln, and the rough-riding progressiveness of Teddy Roosevelt. The
truth, of course, is that if you ask those shameless prostitutes to take
pencil and paper and specifically enumerate examples of the Clintons’
accomplishments you’ll find that the paper either remains pristine or has
its pure whiteness sullied by the worst kind of Clintobull.
The Islamist Trojan
BY YOUSSEF IBRAHIM
"We're fighting them there, so
we don't have to fight them here" has become a hymn for the American right
and an abominable lie to the left. But drowned out by all the noise is the
fact that "they" are here already, having landed a long time ago and
gotten very busy indeed constructing the American wing of jihad.
Grateful - You go, Dan!

In 2004, at
the height of the Dan Rather Memogate story, I wrote in National Review:
“Across the media universe the questions pour out: Why is Dan Rather doing
this to himself? Why does he drag this out? Why won’t he just come clean?
Why would he let this happen in the first place? Why is CBS standing by
him? Why ... why ... why? “There is only one plausible answer: Ours is a
just and decent God.” Well, God has not forsaken us. Dan Rather seems
divinely inspired to crash more times than a Kennedy driving home from an

bin Laden reappeared on the world's television screens on the sixth
anniversary of 9-11, commentaries focused on his newly blackened beard and
his changed message. But more important was the reaction of a Saudi
cleric. In an open letter, one of bin Laden's most prominent Saudi
mentors, the preacher and scholar Salman al-Oadah, publicly reproached bin
Laden for causing widespread mayhem and killing.

Last week, all Republican
politicians worth their weight came out blasting MoveOn.org for taking out
a full-page ad in the New York Times smearing Gen. David Petraeus on the
day he was scheduled to deliver his Iraq progress report to Congress. The
outrage among conservatives only grew as leading Democrats failed to
condemn the ad, Hillary Clinton questioned the general's honesty, and it
was disclosed that the far left group was given a drastically reduced
advertising rate in the New York Times.
