Conservative News, Views & Books - HUMAN EVENTS Keep in mind, all of these revelations appeared in HUMAN EVENTS, but were virtually ignored by the regular media... True or False: "The GOP is the party of Big Business." (Answer: false. Fortune 500 now give more money to the Left by a factor of 14.5 to 1)

Exposed: the Hollywood hypocrites who drive most of the way in from Malibu in Lincoln Navigators … but arrive on camera at the Academy Awards in hybrid, eco-friendly Priuses

45% of British Muslims believe the U.S. and Israel planned the 9/11 attacks. (This clearly does not square with the media view of Islam as a gentle, rational faith.)

Liberals claim that "political correctness" on campus a figment of conservatives' imagination - but a recent national survey found that Democratic professors outnumber Republican professors 3 to 1 in economics, 28 to 1 in sociology, and 30 to 1 in anthropology

American companies recently did $1 billion worth of direct business with Cuba. (This story gets no play because the press want you believe a "cruel U.S. business embargo" is the cause of Cuban poverty.)

The segment of the American public most devoted to unlimited abortion rights is young women, right? Wrong. Surveys reveal that young single men aged 18 to 34 favor unlimited abortion more than any other segment

"Sharia Chic" - how the European fashion industry is featuring outfits inspired by Islamic dress, including clothing worn by jihadists, to rich fashion-conscious Westerners

High energy prices are NOT all bad. (For the first time in 15 years, the number of new U.S. oil wells drilled tops the 1,000 mark -- and exploration is up 35% over last year.)

The Kyoto Treaty can't alter climate -- period. (That's what treaty backers admit. Nevertheless, the global press bends over backwards to cover this up.)

The North Korean missile launch was helpful -- for Red China. (Chinese military leaders got a detailed look at U.S. missile defenses -- sea, air and land-based detection systems and frequencies used.)

Since 9/11, Islamic jihadists have perpetrated not 500, not 2,500, but more than 5,000 terror attacks. (Liberals hush-up this number, claiming the truth would provoke "reprisals" by "violent" Americans against "peaceful" Muslims.) Now, does all this make you feel as if the real "endangered species" these days are truth and common sense? Good! That tells me HUMAN EVENTS will be a welcome breath of fresh air for you. And that you will find yourself eagerly looking forward to some of the most eye-opening reporting to be found in any media today. A few more intriguing samples... The Ethanol Scam: Politicians and Big Agriculture would have you believe that encouraging the use of grain-based ethanol in gasoline is the key to energy independence. But as HUMAN EVENTS revealed, not only do all the ethanol-related tax breaks, subsidies and mandates harm consumers in many ways - driving up the cost of food and other goods, including gasoline itself - but the process of making and transporting it uses more energy than the end product yields!

Looking for a fun night out? Try Gitmo! HUMAN EVENTS reported that, in a new outbreak of Muslim "outreach," the Bush Administration announced plans for "movie nights" at the terrorist defense facility at Guantanamo Bay. Yes, your tax money is now paying out for some of the detainees to chill out to a flick - but only movies that won't offend their Muslim sensibilities, so United 93 and World Trade Center are out.

America's "Inconvenient Fraud" - he's the environmental activist whose 20-room mansion and pool house devour nearly 221,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity a year - more than 20 times the national average. His name - Al Gore, the Academy-Award winning producer of the pro-global warming fraud, "An Inconvenient Truth."

"House Democrats Top 100 Broken Promises" - our report highlighting a string of broken pledges from the new Democratic majority, and showing how Democrats have tried to weaken national security, retreat from the War on Terror, impose the largest tax hike in U.S. history, create slush funds for earmarks, avoid addressing the looming Social Security crisis … and more.

"HillaryCare" is Back - with a Vengeance. And it's not just the usual liberal suspects pushing a Canadian-style "single-payer" (socialist) system - now, Big Business is behind it too. But while America is heeding the siren call of "free" health care, Canadians are experimenting with free-market reforms to fix the nightmarish problems plaguing their system - which include months-long (sometimes years-long) waiting lists for care that sometimes result in permanent health damage, even death.

"The Top 10 Worst Amnesty Provisions of the Senate Immigration Bill" - our just-in-time-to-help- kill-it report on how that seriously flawed legislation would have granted massive benefits to illegal immigrants who have willfully violated U.S. laws, while denying those benefits to immigrants who played by the rules - and sometimes even to U.S. citizens.

Our report on the terrorist-surveillance flap. Liberals cry "Bush is an eavesdropper!" - but HUMAN EVENTS reveals that Democrat presidents, including FDR, Truman and Carter, all conducted electronic surveillance without warrants - and the courts always ruled in favor of them.

How Europeans, freed by America for generations from the burden of defending themselves and by socialist governments from the responsibilities of adult life, have lost the will to survive against a surging Islam.

Women's rights, Muslim style. HUMAN EVENTS reported that as many as 75% of the women jailed in Pakistan are there because they were raped - and judged to be fornicators since rape is almost impossible to prove in courts following the laws of Mohammed.

Hillary's strange "hurricane relief" plan. The would-be Madame President pushed for $75 million for counseling in the wake of Hurricane Katrina - for residents of New York.

Good sex as a government entitlement. HUMAN EVENTS uncovers why states must pay for Viagra and other "ED" drugs. The Clinton Administration ordered them to. That seems right, doesn't it? (But why did Bush keep the policy in place? We're working on it.)

Our report on immigrants. How America-hating multi-culturalists who encourage immigrants and their children to retain their native cultures are destroying the "Melting Pot," stripping us of a common language and Balkanizing the nation.

Evolutionists haven't won - yet. HUMAN EVENTS reveals that even liberal polls show only 10% of Americans believe in evolution as taught in schools, despite massive public school indoctrination over many decades.

When the Joe Wilson-Valerie Plame "conspiracy" story fell apart, the Washington Post lamented that "far too much attention was paid" to the bogus tale. By whom? That would be the New York Times and, lest we forget, the Washington Post, of course.

If Iran's nuclear facilities are ever destroyed, it will likely be by Israel, not the U.S. The Israelis, reports HUMAN EVENTS, are ready with a plan to take out sites manned by scientists, engineers and military officers who are developing the next round of Holocaust weapons.

California's tough new environmental laws (Gov. Schwarzenegger should hang his head in shame) are a farce. Under the deal, businesses can buy, sell and trade "emissions credits" with other companies. Bottom line: A phony market will be created where real money buys meaningless "credits" while the emissions continue unabated. See the difference? The reporting in HUMAN EVENTS pulls no punches and bows to no form of political correctness. This fearless approach has won us the antipathy of the establishment media - along with some rather ominous threats from other quarters. Recently, Robert Spencer - our resident expert on Islam who writes our "Jihad Report" column received a message from al Qaeda, the essence of which was - "convert to Islam or die." Mr. Spencer responded to the terrorists as follows: "While I appreciate that becoming your "brother in Islam" might afford me a measure of personal security, some things are more important than that. I cannot and will not give in to personal intimidation, and I don't want to live in a society that bows to such intimidation." Bravo, Robert Spencer!

So whats this? Advertisements for conservative news in the pub. Esentially, that's exactly what it is. You made no real statements or arguments, you merely replicated a website in the pub. I'm fairly positive that if people here wanted conservative news, they'd seek it out on their own.

No it's not "advertisement, read the topics, I dare you too read for once. It is not a radical site at all, only facts that you never hear about, nor a hate site.It must be too far above you to know more than the media is telling you. truth that dems-liberals are affraid of, and the disgusting media that is supposed to "report" but only puke out info to make people hate repubs, and the same for the 7 year brainwashing to "get the anti Bush vote out". That is the only reason, media elected, not from votes, and with all the good things going on in Iraq, but not even 10 reports in 5 years. "Liberals claim that "political correctness" on campus a figment of conservatives' imagination - but a recent national survey found that Democratic professors outnumber Republican professors 3 to 1 in economics, 28 to 1 in sociology, and 30 to 1 in anthropology" And you wonder why USA is getting sooooo messed up, then accuse me of allways bashing liberals, well at least I can back it up why you kids are so brainwashed. Thats only one, see the rest and try and debunk it, cuz you can't.

Quetron;4344853Conservative News, Views & Books - HUMAN EVENTS Keep in mind, all of these revelations appeared in HUMAN EVENTS, but were virtually ignored by the regular media...

And I wonder why? Maybe because they are pretty obviously extremely biased/colored? Or do you believe in some sort of plot that the media conspires against conservatives and they all hope to erect some sort of hippy world or something?

True or False: "The GOP is the party of Big Business." (Answer: false. Fortune 500 now give more money to the Left by a factor of 14.5 to 1)

Not sure exactly how the statement of "the republican party is the party for big business" and "the top ranking businesses are left winged" relate to each other. It says nothing. First of all how do you decide the political view of a company/busniness? A company normally doesn't publically promote a party (they may sponsor one or more partys though in various ways). Do they look at what the CEO's voted for? And if the CEO's all voted on left winged candidates what does that say? Nothing really since it's a person voting for which party they support for the best overall plans/vision in their personal opinion. This does not have to reflect what is the "companies" vision at all, and neither does a CEO have to vote with purely economic things in mind (read: vote on the party who is best for his company, rather then the company that he or she considers the best overall). So I would like to see a good explination to expand on this "link", what it's mean to illustrate and some clear facts that support this.

When looking at the political compass and business, it's the most beneficial for a company to have as much freedom as it possibly can have. So as less goverment involvement as possible. The political spectrum that favours these views is the liberalist spectrum (generally central and right winged parties). Left winged parties are generally in favour of more goverment influence, social laws and other things that companies have to deal with which would mean more restrictions to them. So you would expect a company to support liberalist/right winged parties when it comes to ecomomic views. Again, the CEO's might not just care about making the most profit thought but support goverment influence (social security and such) to one extend or the other. More over, a CEO hopefully also looks at other views of a party/candite when voting such as international views, education views and many many other views.

Exposed: the Hollywood hypocrites who drive most of the way in from Malibu in Lincoln Navigators … but arrive on camera at the Academy Awards in hybrid, eco-friendly Priuses

Prove? I guess that a certain part (no clue how much I really don't care) of celebs are hypocrits who say one thing (to gain the publics/fans support) and do an other. But what does that prove other then that those celebs are assholes and hypocrits? Does this mean that the views they advocate are wrong? That driving a hybrid or being eco friendly is wrong? no...

45% of British Muslims believe the U.S. and Israel planned the 9/11 attacks. (This clearly does not square with the media view of Islam as a gentle, rational faith.)

Evidence? I find it hard to believe such an absurd poll and it sounds like it wasn't objective at all. But assuming that it was, evne then, so what if they would be sceptic about 9/11 and believe in some conspiracy? And what about other groups of people? How many people in general believe in such a 9/11 conspiracy?

And does this mean that these 45% denies 9/11? Doesn't dissaprove of the events? Hates the USA/israel? No, none of that. So there is not really a point to be made with this stastic either...

Liberals claim that "political correctness" on campus a figment of conservatives' imagination - but a recent national survey found that Democratic professors outnumber Republican professors 3 to 1 in economics, 28 to 1 in sociology, and 30 to 1 in anthropology

So because the liberals (well the left wingers actually but let's not fight over what liberal/liberalist means ;) ) say that "political correctness talk on universities is a rumor by the right wingers" (evidence please supporting this claim??) is something absurt because most proffersors are left winged? Ever considered that the support of the left wing is build up from a group much much more extensive then proffesors? And that their are more fields then the ones you mentioned? How about the ratio in those groups? And overall? And if a majority of all proffesors and other educational staff would be left winged would this mean that the views of the much much larger left wing electorate general opinion would have to be flawed? No. And did it ever accurare to you that the right wing electorate might have a colored vision (aswell) because they somehow would think that the majority of proffesors would support or evnepromote liberal views or even propaganda while such a link can not be made without hard evidence? They may very well shout/accuse of politcall corectness were there is none at all. And f there is or would be, aren't those proffesors meant to make neutral statements which could thus be seen as PC?

I don't really see the point in your argument here either...

American companies recently did $1 billion worth of direct business with Cuba. (This story gets no play because the press want you believe a "cruel U.S. business embargo" is the cause of Cuban poverty.)

Some evidence plese? And if they did, does this somehow prove that the embargo doesn't harm Cuba? What could the trade have been without embargo? If they made 1 billion with the embargo but 10 or more billion without an embargo there clearly would be evidence of Cuba suffering under the embargo. Not to mention that the cubans can suffer under the embargo in other ways as well (it's not all just about money, other factors like having access to one thing or an other has to be taken into account, not to mention influences on things like healthcare and whatelse not...).

Quoting wikipedia here:

Criticism

Many Cubans oppose the embargo, arguing that it attacks the economic resources of Cuba's people rather than its government.[11] Economic damage resulting from the embargo is probably at least partially responsible for endemic food shortages and transportation difficulties in Cuba.[11] Food imports from the United States have increased in recent years despite the embargo, resulting in slight improvements in this situation.[12] Academics outside of Cuba have also criticized the embargo for its effects on food, clean water (see [13]), medicine, and other economic needs of the Cuban population. It has also been linked to shortages of medical supplies and soap which have resulted in a series of medical crises and heightened levels of infectious diseases.[14][15] It has also been linked to epidemics of specific diseases, including neurological disorders caused by poor nutrition[16] and blindness[14]. Travel restrictions embedded in the embargo have also been shown to limit the amount of medical information that flows into Cuba from the United States. [13] Malnutrition and disease resulting from increased food and medicine prices have affected men and the elderly in particular due to a rationing system which gives preferential treatment to women and children.[15]

Source: United States embargo against Cuba - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

As you can see, an embargo is about more then just money that is made... it's about the final effects it has and how that influences the well being of the population.

The segment of the American public most devoted to unlimited abortion rights is young women, right? Wrong. Surveys reveal that young single men aged 18 to 34 favor unlimited abortion more than any other segment

What exactly would be "unlimited abortion rights"? It implies favouring the most extreme versions of abortion such as aborting a child that is about to be born or something... it would be more accurate to say "people who support abortion up to the Xth week". In addition, assuming those figures would be correct (again, evidence please??) , what would the point here be? What would be wrong with a majority of men (single or not) supporting abortion? If anything I would see it as a good thing for supporting women who share these views. It would be a shame if (single, maried or whatever) men wouldn't form an opinion (and thus support or fight for or against) on a topic because it doesn't directly affect them (their body).

"Sharia Chic" - how the European fashion industry is featuring outfits inspired by Islamic dress, including clothing worn by jihadists, to rich fashion-conscious Westerners

So some (what portion??) of of European use inspiration from other cultures. A good thing I would say not to limit yourself to classic works but to broughten their horizon. Making cloths more multicultural doesn't harm anybody, hell it enriches culture if anything... I won't evne comment about extremist wearing those cloths... one might just as well bring up that a lot of extreme right winged people wear jeans, trying to argue that jeans are a bad thing... (which clearly would just be silly).

High energy prices are NOT all bad. (For the first time in 15 years, the number of new U.S. oil wells drilled tops the 1,000 mark -- and exploration is up 35% over last year.)

Energy prices and all other prices should be at a fair level, taking into account request and demand aswell as additional costs due to laws, indirect costs and such. Only if prices are high or low without any jutification at all is there an issue...

But I wouldn't be too happy about expanding the number of drill sites (depending on were is drilled and how much is drilled and in which manner) this may only harm the enviroment. So if higher energegy prices means more drill sites it would be a bad thing... :lol: Though I would figure higher energy costs would promote looking into new (clean or cleaner) energy sources, which is a good thing.

The Kyoto Treaty can't alter climate -- period. (That's what treaty backers admit. Nevertheless, the global press bends over backwards to cover this up.)

Evidence? Anyway, the Kyoto report an attempt not to let the climate get out of hand. Thanks to Bush among others the Kyoto treaty hasn't been signed by enough countries, not to mentioned that it is far from flawless due to consessions that had to be made. If they made a treaty that would on paper be the most effective for the enviroment it would never be acknowledged due to economic interests. However it's a start and hopefully more effective treaties and pacts can be made later on. One has to start somewhere.

The North Korean missile launch was helpful -- for Red China. (Chinese military leaders got a detailed look at U.S. missile defenses -- sea, air and land-based detection systems and frequencies used.)

Erm so? You spy on them and they spy on you, what's the big deal?

Since 9/11, Islamic jihadists have perpetrated not 500, not 2,500, but more than 5,000 terror attacks. (Liberals hush-up this number, claiming the truth would provoke "reprisals" by "violent" Americans against "peaceful" Muslims.) Now, does all this make you feel as if the real "endangered species" these days are truth and common sense?

No? I do fear that somehow some people justify violence and hatred again muslims in general though. Not to mention the consequences of that (radicalising neutral muslims and thus expanding radicalists and such!).

Good! That tells me HUMAN EVENTS will be a welcome breath of fresh air for you. And that you will find yourself eagerly looking forward to some of the most eye-opening reporting to be found in any media today. A few more intriguing samples...

huh?

The Ethanol Scam: Politicians and Big Agriculture would have you believe that encouraging the use of grain-based ethanol in gasoline is the key to energy independence. But as HUMAN EVENTS revealed, not only do all the ethanol-related tax breaks, subsidies and mandates harm consumers in many ways - driving up the cost of food and other goods, including gasoline itself - but the process of making and transporting it uses more energy than the end product yields!

The sideeffects of the (early) seed fuels are well known. It's clear that we can replace all classic fuels (oil) by seed fuel. However, bio fuel made from resources that do no have a negative effect on things such as food resources is a good thing.

I recall some topic on the flaws in the newspaper about this some time ago and the improvements that have been made and discovered to counter (stop) the flaws. I can't recall the details but I agreed with it's end conclusion: We must find alternatives to classic fuel and that bio fuel can contribute to this. Too fully replace all the energy needs however we must also expand other energy resources. If done right the classic fuels can be replaced overtime without negative effects such as extreme food prices or something. I can't quote any facts, but the point I am trying to make us that implying that replacing classic fuels is a bad thing is flawed.

Looking for a fun night out? Try Gitmo! HUMAN EVENTS reported that, in a new outbreak of Muslim "outreach," the Bush Administration announced plans for "movie nights" at the terrorist defense facility at Guantanamo Bay. Yes, your tax money is now paying out for some of the detainees to chill out to a flick - but only movies that won't offend their Muslim sensibilities, so United 93 and World Trade Center are out.

Ever realised that most people are there without trial? That many rights have been violated? Any prisoner deserves a minimal level of respect: A propper prison, acces to a lawyer, a swift and fair trial etc. etc. Not all of these minimums are met and that is very very bad. Now if they would be cuddling convicted criminals (terrorists) and giving them some kind of exclusively rich treatment that would be bad. But last time I checked those people (if trialed and convicted to begin with... ) do not have acces to some kind of villa and all sorts of luxery... But I guess that stripping people, people you merely suspect of some very evila acts, of all human rights si acceptable?

America's "Inconvenient Fraud" - he's the environmental activist whose 20-room mansion and pool house devour nearly 221,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity a year - more than 20 times the national average. His name - Al Gore, the Academy-Award winning producer of the pro-global warming fraud, "An Inconvenient Truth."

Sad indeed but does this mean his movie can't be trusted? No. does ths mean we shouldn't try to follow it's advice? No.

"House Democrats Top 100 Broken Promises" - our report highlighting a string of broken pledges from the new Democratic majority, and showing how Democrats have tried to weaken national security, retreat from the War on Terror, impose the largest tax hike in U.S. history, create slush funds for earmarks, avoid addressing the looming Social Security crisis … and more.

Too bad "all" (well actually some politicians from any camp) politicians can not complete all their promises due to changed facts, impossibilities, misjudgements, consesions etc. etc. Having said that, if they broke a promise that they could have completed, but broke it for no good reason at all that is bad. But I would like to see a list of all broken promises fo all parties in the last decade or so.. And I doubt the democrats willingly and knowlingly endanger national security and such. Got some objective prove for that? SOund slike a silly conspiracy about democrats tring to harm the USA.. :uhoh:

"HillaryCare" is Back - with a Vengeance. And it's not just the usual liberal suspects pushing a Canadian-style "single-payer" (socialist) system - now, Big Business is behind it too. But while America is heeding the siren call of "free" health care, Canadians are experimenting with free-market reforms to fix the nightmarish problems plaguing their system - which include months-long (sometimes years-long) waiting lists for care that sometimes result in permanent health damage, even death.

Not "free" , it's called public healthcare and it isn't free. It's about setting up a social healthcare system that is fair and distributes the costs more fairly between those who need healthcare and those with bigger wallets. And that Canada makes some ajustments to their system doesn't mean that the system as a whole (public healthcare that is) is flawed and doesn't work. so there is n reason to panic, unless you see politicians saying they want to 100% copy a system including any known flaws that harm the nation. I can't see that happening, they will look at other nations (canada) and adopt the good parts though... public healthcare works if it's done right.

"The Top 10 Worst Amnesty Provisions of the Senate Immigration Bill" - our just-in-time-to-help- kill-it report on how that seriously flawed legislation would have granted massive benefits to illegal immigrants who have willfully violated U.S. laws, while denying those benefits to immigrants who played by the rules - and sometimes even to U.S. citizens.

I guess flaws have been around, correct them and make sure the system is more fair in the future so that immigrants and US citizens neither get screwed over and neither get to abuse a system.

Our report on the terrorist-surveillance flap. Liberals cry "Bush is an eavesdropper!" - but HUMAN EVENTS reveals that Democrat presidents, including FDR, Truman and Carter, all conducted electronic surveillance without warrants - and the courts always ruled in favor of them.

I think that's too generalising. I doubt many people question wanting to improve serveillance / security but they may question some of the details on how to improve them.

How Europeans, freed by America for generations from the burden of defending themselves and by socialist governments from the responsibilities of adult life, have lost the will to survive against a surging Islam.

Defending ourselves? Are you talking about WW2 here (a joint allied effort, not a one mans victory)? And should this mean european countries would be in debt to those allied nations for ethernity? I think not. And since when have our European "socialist" goverments approved of turning into some islamic state (which is implied)? Those goverments are open to people from any background and do protect the rigths and acknowledges the wishes of many people from a certain background. There isn't anything wrong with respecting cultures and trying to ensure your nation is a harbour for people of all backgrounds, approving of multiculturarism rather then being afraid from everything that is "different" then the classic culture. The world changes, it's called globalisation. That doesn't only mean that other nations should be open to western culture (coca cola =p) but you should also be open to foreign cultures. If you aren't willing to accept that you shouldn't approve of globalisation in the first place. Or is globalisation only good aslong a "western" values and culture are spread out??

Women's rights, Muslim style. HUMAN EVENTS reported that as many as 75% of the women jailed in Pakistan are there because they were raped - and judged to be fornicators since rape is almost impossible to prove in courts following the laws of Mohammed.

And what does that say about Islam? Nothing, it says a lot about Pakistan though but that's it... what is said here is just as absurd as saying "Human rights American/western/christian style: XX % of terrorist suspects are innocent and from an islamic background"

Hillary's strange "hurricane relief" plan. The would-be Madame President pushed for $75 million for counseling in the wake of Hurricane Katrina - for residents of New York.

This is a bit confusing, what are / were her plans then?

Good sex as a government entitlement. HUMAN EVENTS uncovers why states must pay for Viagra and other "ED" drugs. The Clinton Administration ordered them to. That seems right, doesn't it? (But why did Bush keep the policy in place? We're working on it.)

I would have to see these laws (which drugs are effected by it) and the reasoning behind it.

Our report on immigrants. How America-hating multi-culturalists who encourage immigrants and their children to retain their native cultures are destroying the "Melting Pot," stripping us of a common language and Balkanizing the nation.

Multi culturalism is a good thing, it's all about respecting all cultures and find a good balance between them. Or should there only be one single dominant culture, and people from different backgrounds fully abandon their roots and being forced to accept every aspect of the one super culture? Sure, "american hating" is to be dissaproved of but there is no link between multiculturists and hating america... Multiculturalism, respecting and adepting to the every changing mix of cultures, that is the melthing pot! People who believe in that aren't out to destroy the English language or some silly plot like that... :uhoh: Multicultarists encourage people to both accept/adopt part of the nations culture (intergration) while also keeping parts of their own culture. At the very least this means respecting American laws and such. When you move to a nation far abroad with a totally different culture I doubt you strip yourself of everything that links you to your home nation.

Evolutionists haven't won - yet. HUMAN EVENTS reveals that even liberal polls show only 10% of Americans believe in evolution as taught in schools, despite massive public school indoctrination over many decades.

Evidence please? If only 10% max would believe in darwanism it would have been outlawed a long time ago. Only when the majoirty of people accept a certain view will it be seen as the right/best view. But I guess there is a good conspiracy going on here somehow that wishes to spread the BS of science and destroy christian views (which obviously must be the one and only truth and 90% of the people will tell you so... ) or something...

When the Joe Wilson-Valerie Plame "conspiracy" story fell apart, the Washington Post lamented that "far too much attention was paid" to the bogus tale. By whom? That would be the New York Times and, lest we forget, the Washington Post, of course.

What is this all about?

If Iran's nuclear facilities are ever destroyed, it will likely be by Israel, not the U.S. The Israelis, reports HUMAN EVENTS, are ready with a plan to take out sites manned by scientists, engineers and military officers who are developing the next round of Holocaust weapons.

Any hard evidence that Iran plans to start a war against israel? No. Any evidence that they plan a second holocaust? No. Iran doesn't trust Israel and would prefer to see it gone (it's not their land they say) bt that doesn't automatically prove that Iran is going to destroy Israel.

I do not like the Irany goverment but that doesn't mean they are pure evil or something. I don't trust Israel either for that matter (they don't really respect the nations an people around them eiher... it's rather complicated but pretty much all authorities their have a clean soul/hands, there are no saints).

California's tough new environmental laws (Gov. Schwarzenegger should hang his head in shame) are a farce. Under the deal, businesses can buy, sell and trade "emissions credits" with other companies. Bottom line: A phony market will be created where real money buys meaningless "credits" while the emissions continue unabated.

If executed correctly, it's not more phony then money. These credits are worth actual money, there is a clear value for this credits (people agreed to accept these credits, just as they agree the green paper in your hand called money is worth something) . It's the kyoto treaty in a smaller scale. One should be proud of Gov. Schwarzenegger adopting internationally accepted treaties/systems such as these emission credits.

See the difference? The reporting in HUMAN EVENTS pulls no punches and bows to no form of political correctness.

Is it implied here that "left winged views" somehow equal "political correctness" ? :lol:

This fearless approach has won us the antipathy of the establishment media - along with some rather ominous threats from other quarters. Recently, Robert Spencer - our resident expert on Islam who writes our "Jihad Report" column received a message from al Qaeda, the essence of which was - "convert to Islam or die." Mr. Spencer responded to the terrorists as follows: "While I appreciate that becoming your "brother in Islam" might afford me a measure of personal security, some things are more important than that. I cannot and will not give in to personal intimidation, and I don't want to live in a society that bows to such intimidation." Bravo, Robert Spencer!

Shouldn't he have written back something along the lines of him not wanting to convert to islam and them having to accept that and not treathening to kill him since that is against Islam? Islamist must convert people but if they are no treath then on believers can not be killed. Or perhaps Mr. Spencer only is an expert on certain parts of the Islam? Anyway, I don't see the point here either since religions can live side by side just fine. Too bad extremists of any religions and from any side will abuse (and betray) religion to kill eachother.

I have to conclude that this "human events" is a joke. Sounds like a good magazine for those who want a good laugh on how uninformed people can be. :lol: ;) They might as well have called it "Guideline to ignorantism for those who value the perfect culture" (and some nice motto to go with it that points out the irony of extremists from other cultures who have a very strange look on global events...

Having said that, it's good to read various sources to get a more brought perspective and all. But I hope that you see that tis "human events" is pretty damn flawed and far from objective.

Not flawed, that is Newts page, and I am 100% sure everything is backed by facts. But you miss the overall picture. If you take all those examples add them all together, and NOT report on any of it. Means that all the people are hearing-knowing is NOT from the real - true facts.Hence election is all a big farse, media is a farse, and peoples views have no bearing on how the dems-liberals are leaving out tons of there own flaws but yet neither being told to the general public. So it looks like all because Newt is a republican you fall into the same mis informed crowd as the maases have been duped by the mainstream media. Your going to tell me if a liberal profeesors out numbering conservatives by such a large ammunt has no ! effect, keep kidding yourself. The point of abortion is the pro abortion arguement is an idealistic one, not somthing the people would totaly want, more misleading info. Since the woman are the supposedly ones who have the "rights" why isn't that the highest group for pro abortion. WHY? because of the liberal "agenda" and not why anyone would want a so called right. I can explain every point that you don't understand, it's the same thing as bashing foxnews, but yet they have way over the top viewership. So you and many would conclude that all things foxnews is-does is automaticaly a big farse, but no proof of it. All the while other news orgs openly admit they are rooting for Obama, talk about bad press and 100% not the funtion of reporting. It is supposed to be NEWS not all that Bush bashing agenda like the way they do it. If you need all this proof, you would need o goto the website. But he has like a thing of ten items, each item has 70% of the peoples polling for what he says. He critisizes his own party, along with many other things.But just like the stigma of someone hearing "foxnews" or ANY OTHER repub, you all write them off keeping yourselves ignorant.

Evolutionists haven't won - yet. HUMAN EVENTS reveals that even liberal polls show only 10% of Americans believe in evolution as taught in schools, despite massive public school indoctrination over many decades.

Massive public school indoctrination :lol:

Actually there are a lot of good points in that article. A few are hard to believe, but most of them are believable.

I find it complete pathetic of Quentron to do nothing but lick a political party's butt without questioning the one he supports. Liberal this, liberal that, blah blah blah...

Sedistix;4345122So whats this? Advertisements for conservative news in the pub. Esentially, that's exactly what it is. You made no real statements or arguments, you merely replicated a website in the pub. I'm fairly positive that if people here wanted conservative news, they'd seek it out on their own.

Are you going to say something useful, or just contradict yourself? No doubt you would be congratulating Quetron on the "good find" if this was liberal news. He posted it to stimulate debate, stop bitching and start debating. Most of those points are true to my knowledge, though I find a few difficult to believe. Some sources would be nice.
