A Deplorable October Surprise

Susan Estrich, the national campaign manager for the failed presidential candidate Gov. Michael Dukakis, rips the LA Times in their own paper.

What the Times tried to do is incredibly transparent. This sort of gotcha journalism speaks volumes for the level of media bias and hatred of Republicans at the LA Times.

Weak communists and cute secretaries are Italy's main strengths: Berlusconi

Why invest in Italy? Their Prime Minister rattled off a couple of reasons, then laid on these whoppers:

"Another reason to invest in Italy is that there are much fewer communists than before, down from 34 percent to 16 percent today."

"We also have gorgeous secretaries, superb girls."

'Freedom Rides' Tout Immigrants' Cause

The perversion of the civil rights movement of yore continues.

With that history in mind, Ngouy boarded a bus Tuesday, joining some 900 others on a cross-country ride to raise awareness about undocumented immigrants and labor issues in the United States.

Even the media perverts the language, debasing themselves with bias in the national discourse. These people are not undocumented immigrants. They are illegal aliens. They have no basis for being here. They need to be shipped out.

By working in the US, illegal aliens take away jobs from people who obey the law. By working those jobs that are considered menial or loathsome at minimum level wages, illegal aliens are subverting the free market by accepting lower wages than what it takes to legally gain the services of a willing and able worker.

Illegals ought to be rounded up and shipped out.

Court Reinstates Oct. 7 California Recall

An 11-member panel of the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a decision by its most liberal members that would have postponed the Oct. 7th recall election. They ruled unanimously.

What were those three judges thinking when they postponed the vote? Is that something that liberalism and the Democratic Party want to be associated with, namely, the suspension of the rule of law and the constitution of the state of California?

Why is the recall a "constitutionally infirm election" if using punch card ballots when the vote that reelected Gov. Davis was conducted why the same hardware?

This ruling corrects a travesty.

BBC leaves Gilligan out in the cold

The BBC reporter Andrew Gilligan was left isolated at the Hutton inquiry yesterday when he was forced to retract key elements of his controversial Today programme report while the corporation's head of news denounced his journalistic standards.

The hacks at the BBC have hung reporter Andrew Gilligan out to dry. He is the whipping boy, the sacrificial lamb offered to atone for their sins of commission.

Both admitted it was a serious error of judgment for Gilligan to email members of the foreign affairs committee (FAC), suggesting questions they might ask of Dr Kelly and effectively outing him as the source for reports by the BBC Newsnight journalist Susan Watts.

Perhaps their judgment was clouded by their political biases and hatred for the Blair and Bush governments.
