I agree with the editors of the National Review — The White house should revoke the New York Times’ White House press credentials because of the Times’ bad habit of revealing secret National Security programs. And they should search out and prosecute the disgruntled leftists in the government who seek to undermine the President and the war on terror by leaking this secret information.
This is from the article:
“New York Times executive editor Bill Keller concluded that “the administration’s extraordinary access to this vast repository of international financial data, however carefully targeted use of it may be, is a matter of public interest.”
It is a matter of interest mainly to al Qaeda. The terrorists will now adapt. They will find new ways of transferring funds, and precious lines of intelligence will be lost. Murderers will get the resources they need to carry out their grisly business. As for the real public interest, it lies primarily in safety — and what the Times has ensured is that the public today is less safe.”
I like what White House Press Secretary Tony Snow said about it:
“The NEW YORK TIMES and other news organizations ought to think long and hard about whether a public’s right to know in some cases might override somebody’s right to live.”
We should be thankful that the folks currently running the New York Times were not in charge during World War II. They probably would have revealed exactly when and how our troops were going to hit the beaches on D-Day. And then defended their actions by saying, “The public has a right to know!”
Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney punches a police officer and gets away with it. As Tina said on her blog:
“There was a time when whites could get away with assaulting blacks because nothing would be done. Now, apparently, prominent blacks won’t be prosecuted for assault because if anyone dares to, the race card will be pulled. Martin Luther King must be spinning in his grave.”

This is from a column by Tom Harris:
“Scientists have an independent obligation to respect and present the truth as they see it,” Al Gore sensibly asserts in his film “An Inconvenient Truth”, showing at Cumberland 4 Cinemas in Toronto since Jun 2. With that outlook in mind, what do world climate experts actually think about the science of his movie?
Professor Bob Carter of the Marine Geophysical Laboratory at James Cook University, in Australia gives what, for many Canadians, is a surprising assessment: “Gore’s circumstantial arguments are so weak that they are pathetic. It is simply incredible that they, and his film, are commanding public attention.”
But surely Carter is merely part of what most people regard as a tiny cadre of “climate change skeptics” who disagree with the “vast majority of scientists” Gore cites?
No; Carter is one of hundreds of highly qualified non-governmental, non-industry, non-lobby group climate experts who contest the hypothesis that human emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) are causing significant global climate change. “Climate experts” is the operative term here. Why? Because what Gore’s “majority of scientists” think is immaterial when only a very small fraction of them actually work in the climate field.”

Just think…..this guy was less than 1,000 votes from being President. That’s scary!
An article in the National Review listed the 50 greastes conservative rock songs, and it is quite interesting. I had never thought of some of these songs as conservative songs.
Read the article HERE.
The number one song? “Won’t Get Fooled Again” by The Who. This is from the article:
“The conservative movement is full of disillusioned revolutionaries; this could be their theme song, an oath that swears off naïve idealism once and for all. “There’s nothing in the streets / Looks any different to me / And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye. . . . Meet the new boss / Same as the old boss.” The instantly recognizable synthesizer intro, Pete Townshend’s ringing guitar, Keith Moon’s pounding drums, and Roger Daltrey’s wailing vocals make this one of the most explosive rock anthems ever recorded — the best number by a big band, and a classic for conservatives.”
