"Outraged 9-11 Victims" Tied to Kerry Campaign Directly

Political Commentary

By Jason Smith

"September 11 Families Say Bush Campaign Treading on the Dead . . ."

So reads the headline. It makes one think that Bush has enraged every member of every family who lost someone on September 11. It gives the idea that Bush has crossed the line and disrespected the victims of our nation's tragedy. . . .

. . . then you read "the rest of the story."

The article has quotes from some women like Rita Lasar, who lost her brother. Rita says, "Ground Zero is a sacred site . . . find some other way to run a campaign without stepping on the bodies of our dead." In passing it mentions that Rita is a steering committee member of the group, September 11 Families for Peaceful Tomorrows.

Then another article quotes Colleen Kelly as saying, "It's absolutely inappropriate . . . There are certain memories and certain images that I consider sacred." Colleen Kelly leads the group, September 11 Families for Peaceful Tomorrows.

Now just reading these articles leaves the average person with the feeling that these women would have no political agenda, they're simply mourning victims of a national tragedy who are voicing their heartfelt, personal feelings in reaction to a few ads supporting President Bush in the Presidential campaign. But let's take a closer look: Read More

Commentary on Constitutional Law and American Political Issues

By John Armor

How has homosexual "marriage" gone from a theory in the homosexual agenda to the performance of ceremonies of dubious legality in a number of jurisdictions on both coasts? It is notable that no such ceremonies have cropped up in fly-over country between the coasts. The source of all these is a single decision, by a 4 -3 vote, of the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts, the highest court in that state.

Admittedly, the problem is metastasizing because of the actions of mayors and city councils in other states. But without the example of the Massachusetts court I doubt that those local officials would have been emboldened to thumb their noses at the laws of their jurisdictions and authorize homosexual marriages elsewhere.

And though homosexual marriage is a large problem that reaches into all parts of the country, the underlying problem is much larger than that. First, why does a decision by a Massachusetts court present a national problem? That's due to the Full Faith and Credit Clause of the US Constitution, which requires all states to recognize the official acts of other states. And a marriage certificate from one state is clearly represents an official act, when that couple travels to another state. . . . Read More

My New Business: "Some Of My Best Friends Are Black"

Political Commentary

By Kevin L. Martin

I had some very interesting thoughts in the days after watching the exchange between Reverend Al Sharpton and Former Vermont Governor Howard Dean at the Black and Brown Debate in Iowa.

Sharpton called out Dean on the lack of Blacks and Hispanics in his cabinet during his 12 years as governor, and Dean had to admit that the charge was true. Just as true as was former President Bill Clinton's lack of minorities in his inner cabinet.

Dean and his handlers sought to downplay the impact of Sharpton's words the following day with Dean using the standard white liberal quote, "Some of my best friends are black." With Dean's words ringing my ears, my thoughts lead me to wonder if I should start a new business called "Some of my best friends are black." Read More

Is it Time for Bush to Consider Picking a New Veep?

Political Commentary

By Douglas Oliver

In the past week, Condoleezza Rice has been subjected to very unusual attacks in the national media. Some pundits have reported she may even be forced out by President George W. Bush because of the flap arising from his use of those "16 little words" in his State of the Union Speech. U.S. News reported on July 28th that some advisors are urging that she be allowed to resign. Of course, that Washington insider report waffled and made it clear that the rumors were not coming from White House sources.

I want to go on the record early and express my personal support for Dr. Rice. She is being attacked viciously and without good reason in my view. However, there are other reasons for these attacks. I state my opinions about what may have motivated them in detail below. But let me make my position crystal clear:

I believe "Condi" Rice would make a great Vice Presidential candidate to run with President Bush in 2004. . . Read More Special Report on Sex Slavery:
