From the Writings of David Horowitz: May 24, 2010


From the beginning, McCain-Feingold was a political Trojan Horse. Its stated purpose did not reflect its actual purpose. Its stated purpose was to clean up politics by tightly regulating the amount of money political parties and candidates could accept from donors. Its actual purpose, to use [George] Soros’s words, was to curb the “use of [...]

Can Kevin Costner’s Oil Spill Fix Make Up For “Waterworld” Disaster?


For years, film buffs have been lampooning actor Kevin Costner for his 1995 flop Waterworld. However, Costner has also given us good movies such as the unforgettable 1987 film The Untouchables. He was even able to make JFK watchable, a 1991 film by Marxist propagandist Oliver Stone. Like most actors his career is riddled with ups [...]

Union Stance on Illegals About Money and Power


Liz Blaine’s excellent piece Sunday showed the tension between union members who see illegal aliens flooding the job market and driving down the price of labor, and union bosses who lobby for watering down immigration laws, obsessing over “migrant rights,” and boycotting Arizona.
And while Liz is right that this fits into the socialist mindset of [...]

Greek Premier: My Socialist Country’s Screwups Are America’s Fault


In order to distract from the grave fiscal crisis caused by Greece’s cradle-to-grave socialism, Greek socialist prime minister George Papandreou is threatening to sue American banks.
Like his father before him who was also prime minister, Papandreou is the leader of the political party PASOK, which is the Panhellenic Socialist Movement. He is also president of the Socialist International. [...]

To obtain the money he would need in order to get CCX of the ground, the company’s founder, Richard Sandor, turned to the Chicago-based Joyce […]

Lobbyists for ACORN’s largest and best-funded affiliate, ACORN Housing, which recently changed its name to Affordable Housing Centers of America, disclosed in a lobbying reporting form that they have been lobbying a federal agency that is reportedly probing ACORN Housing. Among ACORN affiliates, ACORN Housing has taken in the most taxpayer money over the years.

Greece’s Socialist Candy Jar Runs Out


It was Margaret Thatcher who observed that the problem with socialism was that eventually you run out of other people’s money.
Given my insatiable Sweet Tooth, I have a different spin on this economic principle: eventually there will be nothing left in the community candy jar.
We see it now in Greece, as Bill O’Reilly explained in [...]

“Pro-Aborts” Shut Down Abortion Industry Exposé


Today and yesterday, disconcerted emails were fluttering around the New York pro-Life community regarding an abortion industry exposé which was shut down by the pro-choice rabble in Albany, NY. Several of these emails wound up in my mailbox at the New York State Right to Life office which is located in the city. 
“The pro-aborts ran amok,” [...]

Glenn Beck Gives Obama The Silent Treatment


In a visually compelling format Glenn Beck heaped justified ridicule on one of the many false precepts of progressivism, to wit, that it is somehow “unfair” that some people have more money than others.
To do this, Beck gave President Obama (and his audience) the silent treatment on his TV show. (video link)
As a video clip showed the president [...]
