Jack Murtha’s sleazy political legacy.

From the Writings of David Horowitz: February 9, 2010


A democracy at war is faced with problems dictatorships find avoidable. Its citizens have a responsibility—as the Left never tires of repeating—not to abandon the freedoms they are defending, in order to defend them.

The Internet and Us: Who’s in Charge Anyway?


Earlier today, our very own David Swindle alerted me to this documentary Douglas Rushkoff directed for PBS’s “Frontline.” The subject: how the Internet is changing us.

Paul D. Ryan: A GOP Road Map for America’s Future – WSJ.com


In tonight’s State of the Union address, President Obama will declare a new found commitment to “fiscal responsibility” to cover the huge spending and debt he and congressional Democrats have run up in his first year in office.

Bin Laden: Bad Attention Is Better Than No Attention


Bin Laden has released a new audio tape to claim responsibility for the Christmas Day airline plot that Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab and Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula tried to carry out.
