***updated here.*** Lots of blog buzz over MoveOn.org’s latest, noxious anti-war propaganda. First, check out the video here (in Quicktime). Notice this?

On Nov. 18, U.S. Magistrate Judge Valerie K.

To keep […]

But we mustn’t question the Left’s patriotism, right?
The “Main Street” Republicans, who I criticized earlier this month for sabotaging conservative House efforts to open up ANWR for drilling, have sent a letter accusing me of “libelous statements.” I’ve uploaded the letter from Danielle Graham, counsel for the Republican Main Street Partnership, here. (As you’ll see from the letter, it appears there are […]
