Julian Bond's message to LGBTs: 'keep pushing on - victory is just ahead'

Reading Alvin's earlier diary (" From 'outside agitators' to 'wealthy gay activists' - Some of us black folks haven't learned a thing " bumped back up below this post), it's good to remind people that there are black folks who DO get it. Rev. Walter Fauntroy may have been director of the DC bureau of Dr. King's Southern Christian Leadership Conference, but that clearly didn't enlighten him to the fact that civil rights are human rights. He has hopped into bed with charlatan Bishop Harry Jackson. [more...]

Obama supports extending Patriot Act provisions

Orwellian in name, the Patriot Act, has long been at the center of controversy over the extension of powers it gives the FBI and the CIA. Even it’s supporters admit that it reduces peacetime liberties but argue that it is the price we must pay to fight terrorists. One of the problems with any act such as the Patriot Act is once it is implemented the government is always reluctant to give up it’s additional powers regardless of whether or not the original threat that prompted the act still exists.

AEI Interns’ Transcripts in Date Order: Their Own First Draft of History

First of all, I want to reemphasize everything Laurie just said. This is not a new threat, and this is not a threat we did not know about. Saddam Hussein has, in many ways, openly dreamed of mass death in the United States. He has shared his dreams with his nation and the world many times. We also know he has actively planned to do so many times, and Laurie’s book is a rather convincing argument that he is active and successfully implemented plans to do so as well. [more...]
