Missing radioactive material worries officials, National Post
OTTAWA -- A record number of low-level radioactive materials, the kind terrorists could fashion into dirty bombs, have gone missing in Canada this year, raising concerns about the effectiveness of federal controls over nuclear materials. (continue reading)Wall Street is betting on a recession, Peace and Freedom II
Investors in stocks and bonds are paying prices that indicate they believe a snowballing housing crisis and worsening credit crunch will soon tip the U.S. economy into a recession, analysts said. Many economists, including leaders of the Federal Reserve, don’t think things will get that bad, but some say the risk of a serious downturn has risen in recent weeks. (continue reading)
“We’ll Do It Again” - al Qaeda Speaks Through Al-Fajr, Stormwarning's Counterterrorism Blog
Addressing the upcoming Annapolis meetings, al Qaeda, speaking through its Al-Fajr Media Center calls the conference a media circus, ridicules the Sept. 11th conspiracy theorists. Then, calling the World Trade Center the “Metropolis,” warns that they hope that they will learn a lesson before Dubai’s ‘Burj al-Arab’ becomes the next World Trade Center.” (continue reading)
Bush: America Must Make "Difficult Compromises" with Al-Qaeda, Debbie Schlussel
Well, actually, President Bush did not say that achieving peace with Al-Qaeda "requires difficult compromises." We would never compromise with this group that murdered 3,000-plus Americans worldwide. We're fighting them on several fronts.
No, last night at a State Department dinner, Bush told Israel and its spineless, dishonest Prime Minister Ehud Olmert that achieving peace (with the Muslim world--but he didn't specify that or with whom, since HAMAS, Iran, and Hezbollah ain't there) "requires difficult compromises."

Targeting The Elderly, Right Wing Sparkle
It just occurred to me that Hillary's campaign is like watching a play. The entire thing is scripted.
Remember a couple of weeks ago in the Democratic debate where Hillary ended with a touching story about the elderly women she meets? She said that she has shaken hands with 95 year old women who tell her: “When I was born women were not able to vote. I want to live to see a woman in the White House.” (continue reading)
It's Alive!!!, Conservatively Speaking
That phrase, "It's alive!" brings to mind the crazed Dr. Frankenstein announcing that his experiment was a success. As we know, though, that creation went on to terrorize and torture those in the surrounding areas. That monster was ultimately the undoing of the good doctor.
Our Supreme Court, seated with activist judges, has made that same proclamation in regards to our Constitution. What they have created is no less a monster than the one Dr. Frankenstein created. It, too, is destined to be the undoing of us all. (continue reading)
Trannies Go Wild, Bear Creek Ledger
Hold the pickles, hold the lettuce and you better not anger transvestites at a Memphis, TN McDonalds. This would be amusing if it weren’t in Memphis which is about the worst run city in the country aside from Washington D.C. (continue reading)
The Resurgence of Small Government Conservatism?, American Power
I've been marveling over the diversity among Republicans of late on the question of which set of conservative values will prevail in the post-Bush era. The current ferment has got me thinking: Is Reagan the model, as he's often mentioned in the debate over the conservative future? (continue reading)
On global warming, uh, er, climate change, um, the church of Al Gore ...
On November 12, former vice president Al Gore announced he is joining a venture capital firm that seeks to cash in on global warming alarmism.
Also on climate change, (global warming, um, gerbil warming): "The Man With His Finger In The Hole"
After mocking the green revolution by always referring to Global warming as “Gerbil Warming” And always thinking that Richard Gere had cornered the market on this activity I have stumbled upon the fact that Gerbil Warming is real and widespread, and happening now, as we speak. (continue reading)
