Thank you, thank you…THANK YOU! Thanks in no small part to the generosity of so many News & Views readers, my wife Gia was the #1 online fundraiser for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in Baltimore yesterday. She shattered her $500 goal...raising well over $2,000. Thank you all for not only supporting a good cause, but supporting something so important to my better half.


If you still haven’t seen the “Stolen Honor” documentary on John Kerry’s anti-war activities and were disappointed at Sinclair Broadcastings decision not to air it in its entirety Friday night, you can now watch it FREE online at:


Another funny online animation making fun of both candidates set to the tune of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Catch it at:


Democrat (and some GOP) members of the Senate are attempting to strip provisions in the pending intelligence re-organization bill which would, among other things, prohibit the issuance of driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants...the kind of driver’s licenses used by the 9/11 hijackers to board those four planes that fateful morning. Another provision would, for example, provide for the speedy deportation of illegal alien gang members caught on American streets.

But big-time pressure by various open border groups is being brought to bear on congressional negotiators to scuttle these tough border and interior immigration enforcement measures. So please take a minute to urge the chief House negotiator not to cave in to demands to drop these important security provisions. Click here to sign this latest Brushfire Alert petition:


“According to polls taken this year, nearly 65 percent of the public doesn't know that Congress has banned partial-birth abortion. Seventy percent is unaware that a massive drug benefit has been added to Medicare. At least 58 percent say they have heard "nothing" or ‘not much’ about the Patriot Act, notwithstanding the enormous amount of coverage the controversial law has drawn. “…(W)e hear endlessly about the need to increase voter turnout. But more alarming than the tens of millions of non-voting adults are the tens of millions of adults who *do* vote despite knowing next to nothing about the candidates and the issues. . . . Widespread political ignorance poses a potentially lethal threat to our democratic freedoms. If we were smarter, we'd be worried.”

- Boston Globe columnist Jeff Jacoby


“Here they come -- the earnest exhortations to get out and vote. You'll be hearing it from television newscasters, MTV, newspaper ads, radio talk show hosts, weathermen, schoolteachers ... you get the idea. Everyone has a duty to vote, they will say. No they don't. If a person is utterly ignorant about matters of public policy, then he or she has a solemn obligation TO REFRAIN FROM VOTING.”

- Columnist Mona Charen


“My working theory is this: One of the two candidates will win enough states by a large enough margin so that the political pressures to call off the legal dogs will overcome the natural desire of lawyers to file paperwork and the natural desire of clerks of court to accept them, stamp them, accept the required filing fees, issue receipts and inform the media who has filed what against whom.”

- Rich Galen, “Mullings,” 10/25/04


“Who said, ‘If you hold your fire until you see the whites of his eyes, you will never know what hit you’? It was President Franklin D. Roosevelt, and he said it on May 27, 1941. It applies even more today. If you are going to go to war against terrorists in a nuclear age ‘only as a last resort’ and also only when it meets international approval, you might as well not bother. You could see a mushroom cloud before you see the whites of their eyes.”

- Columnist Thomas Sowell


“First and foremost, of course, is the fact that five days after we dug Saddam [Hussein] out of his hole in northern Iraq, Moammar Gadhafi, the leader of Libya, went public and announced he was giving up all of his nuclear materials. He had the uranium. He had the centrifuges to enrich the uranium. He had a design for a weapon. All of that is now under lock and here in the United States. He saw the wisdom of no longer pursuing those aspirations and contacted Tony Blair and President Bush. He didn't call the United Nations."

- Vice President Dick Cheney on the positive results of our liberating Iraq


“Earlier this week, Mr. Carter was on MSNBC's ‘Hardball with Chris Matthews.’ Mr. Matthews asked his guest if, as an amateur historian, he sees any parallels between the war in Iraq and the Revolutionary War. Mr. Carter: ‘Well, one parallel is that the Revolutionary War more than any other war until recently has been the most bloody war we've fought.’

“Stop right there. . . . (I)n the Revolutionary War which took place from 1775 to 1783 there were 4,435 American deaths. In a single battle in the Civil War (The Wilderness, May 5 to May 7, 1864), Gen. Ulysses S. Grant lost 17,666 men in two days.

“Wait, it gets worse: ‘I think another parallel is that in some ways the Revolutionary War could have been avoided. It was an unnecessary war.’ What could possibly account for this falsehood? Well, here's the rest: ‘Had the British Parliament been a little more sensitive...we would gotten our independence in a non-violent way...the British were very misled in going to war against America …’

“So, by Mr. Carter's revisionism, a shortage of sensitivity and bad intelligence led the British to wage an eight-year, ‘unnecessary’ war. Sound familiar?”

- Washington Times, 10/23/04


John Hospers, the Libertarian Party’s first presidential candidate back in 1972 and author of the first full-length book describing libertarianism, has penned a ringing endorsement for the re-election of George W. Bush over John Kerry. “When the stakes are not high it is sometimes acceptable, even desirable, to vote for a ‘minor party’ candidate who cannot possibly win, just to ‘get the word out’ and to promote the ideals for which that candidate stands” Hospers writes. “But when the stakes are high, as they are in this election, it becomes imperative that one should choose, not the candidate one considers philosophically ideal, but the best one available who has the most favorable chance of winning.”
