Therefore, if we want to eliminate the threat of domestic terrorism, and not just keep dancing around the problem, we must stop talking about assimilating Moslems and start talking about excluding and deporting them instead.

Urge lawmakers to cosponsor this major new pro-life bill.

What part of "Thou Shalt Not Kill" does she not understand? Since when is killing innocent, unborn babies something that is allowed by freedom of conscience? I wish they would read 1 Cor 11:27-30 "A person should examine himself, and so eat the bread and drink the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body, eats and drinks judgment on himself. That is why many among you are ill and infirm, and a considerable number are dying. If we discerned ourselves, we would not be under judgment; but since we are judged by (the) Lord, we are being disciplined so that we may not be condemned along with the world."

Florida bishop rebukes pro-abortion Catholics
He replies also to the accusations that politics is not the proper realm for churchmen, a criticism often accompanied by polemics about "separation of Church and State." "It is totally within our competence to say that one cannot be complicit in the injustice of denying the right to life of an unborn child or an invalid elder and still consider oneself a good Catholic," the bishop writes.

WMD Stockpiles
Gazi George, a former Iraqi nuclear scientist under Saddam's regime, told Fox News he believes many similar weapons stockpiled by the former regime were either buried underground or transported to Syria. He noted that the airport where the device was detonated is on the way to Baghdad from the Syrian border.
"I'm sure they're going to find more once time passes," he continued, saying one year is not enough for the survey group or the military to find the weapons.

Iraqi Nerve Gas, WMD Find Blows Away Pundits
We all know from the anti-war fanatics that there are no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq - the leftist media and pundits have pounded that assertion into the American TV fact file. We are told again and again that George Bush lied.

The recent discovery of nerve gas and mustard gas in Iraq is clearly proof that it was Saddam Hussein that was lying. Saddam lied about his weapons and has hidden more than one for future use.

A Very Dangerous Place
Monday's news confirms what [David] Kay reported to an indifferent Congress: "We know that terrorists were passing through Iraq. And now we know that there was little control over Iraq's weapons capabilities. I think it shows that Iraq was a very dangerous place. The country had the technology, the ability to produce, and there were terrorist groups passing through the country -- and no central control."

The 9/11 commission is accussing the Bush Administration of not getting enough intellegence to prevent the 9/11 attacks, but is going ballistic because military intelligence officers are doing too much to get information.

Dem Touts Abu Ghraib as Political 'Silver Bullet'
"We have so many people out there that are so concerned about the human rights of a bunch of people who are murderers and terrorists that I find it offensive," he told Sean Hannity."

The Jerusalem Post has this to say.
Iraq in perspective
"The attempt to compare prisons filled with alleged terrorists and other jihadis with gulags past and present is obscene and an insult to the victims of terrorists and dictators.

How can enlightened people, who claim to care about human rights, compare the real gulags that now exist in places like Iran and North Korea, in which thousands of innocent people are being killed and tortured far from the public eye, to the American incarceration of terrorist suspects?
Regardless of where one stands on the debate over how to fight terrorism, it is incumbent on all those who care about human rights not to debase this fundamental concept by conflating its exceptional violation by countries who believe deeply in it with its rampant trampling by those who do not. Nor should we in the West, because of lamentable but exceptional incidents, condemn ourselves and the world to much greater injustices by simply throwing in the towel in this war to defend our freedom and beliefs.
In Iraq, Saddam Hussein's henchmen would feed prisoners into shredders and shoot them for sport."

I wonder. How do liberals know when something is wrong? Imagine the terrorists saying, "Killing someone is not something I would ever do, but I don't want to impose my beliefs on anyone else." How can liberals judge the terrorists if they promote the killing of unborn babies? Partial birth abortion is as cruel as beheading Nick Berg.

Gary Bauer's comments:
Al Qaeda War Crime
"News is just breaking that a jihadist website is running a video that purports to show an American, Nick Berg of Philadelphia, being beheaded in revenge for the events at Abu Ghraib prison. But before we jump to any conclusions about this being retaliation, remember that our enemy has been beheading us (Daniel Pearl), desecrating bodies (early American POW's) and ignoring the rules of war (hijacking aircraft) long before any of them were being humiliated by American MPs! Why do I think that by tonight this atrocity, if true, will be blamed on Secretary Rumsfeld and President Bush rather than on the murderers who want to behead, poison or irradiate all of us? By the way, the media this morning was describing Berg's body as showing "signs of trauma." It is only now that we discover from his murderers he was beheaded. The press wants us to see every photo from the prison, but they try to hide the handiwork of our enemy."

"Here's another fact you won't hear tonight on the major networks. In February of this year, the parents of one of the accused soldiers wrote to 17 senators, including Hillary Clinton and Ted Kennedy, informing them of events at the prison. There is no record that any of those senators, among them the loudest critics of President Bush and Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld, took any action."

Same-sex marriage: Good for gays, bad for children
Of all the arguments against same-sex marriage, the most immediately compelling is that it is hurts children. If children have a right to anything, it is to begin life with a mother and father.

Death, divorce, abandonment, a single parent's mistakes -- any one of these deprives children of a mother or father. But only same-sex marriage would legally ensure that children are deprived from birth of either a mother or a father.

My oldest child, Kristen, is celebrating her 16th birthday today. This is a day I have dreaded for years. I'm taking off early today to take her for her driver's license test. I am filled with fear of losing her to an accident, yet I know I can't hold her back or over-protect her.

My mom once told me about a mommy robin that was pushing her babies off the top of her car. The mommy robin was trying to make her babies learn how to fly. I wish I could rejoice in the freedom my daughter wants from me, but I just can't help wanting to hold on to her. And I remember when she was a toddler my biggest worry was that she would fall down the stairs. Now the dangers are so much bigger and I'm shaking from fear. I'll be praying her Guardian Angel will follow her everywhere now. That's all I can do -- turn it over to the love and care of God and trust He will bring me through this.

I love you, Kristen! Happy Sweet Sixteen!

To her credit, Reno admits fault, even responsibility, for the failure of intelligence agencies to communicate with one another:
