New Poll--Congress Rates as Low as Bush

Washington, DC (TLS). A brand new poll just released on Friday indicates that public approval of Congress has slipped to equal that of President Bush.

As Bush reels from some of his lowest approval numbers ever, apparently the public has seen enough of the Democratic-controlled Congress to conclude that Congress is just as disappointing as Mr. Bush.

Perhaps Mr. Bush can at least take some comfort in the fact that not only is the public's ire ignited toward him, but they have quickly concluded that this Congress is just as inept as the last one.

This does not bode well for incumbents in either Party.

Giuliani: 'Never Again'

Washington, DC (TLS). The quote of the day comes from Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

During a major campaign speech the former New York City Mayor stated, 'Never again will we be caught on the defensive in the fight against terrorism. We must stay on the offensive against those who are seeking to kill us.'

Regardless of what one might think about some of Rudy's views, there is no doubt that he is a natural-born leader. He has proved this time and again in the wake of the 9/11 attacks.

Giuliani inspires confidence in troubled times. For that we can give him truckloads of credit.

Gag Order in Ware Shoals-Jill Moore-Jane Blackwell Case

Ware Shoals, SC (TLS). A Greenwood County court has issued a gag order which will amount to a total news blackout in the Jill Moore-Jane Blackwell-Ware Shoals High School cheerleader sex scandal. The order comes in the wake of the airing of a videotape on a local TV station, showing Jill Moore's interrogation by Greenwood County Sheriff's officials.

The content of the portion of the video that was shown on TV directly involves former Ware Shoals High School principal Jane Blackwell and what she may have known about the activities of former cheerleader coach Jill Moore.

Moore was charged with giving alcohol and cigarettes to minors and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

But it was allegations of sexual misconduct that led to the investigation into Moore's activities, which eventually led to a charge of obstruction brought against Blackwell.

State's attorney Jerry Peace stated that the airing of the video that shows law enforcement interrogation of Moore severely compromises the case and that a change in venue may be necessary. In an effort to drastically reduce the likelihood of further compromises, the Court issued the gag order.

This is not the first time that a local television station became part of this story in Ware Shoals. When Principal Jane Blackwell gave testimony before the Ware Shoals School Board, a local TV station refused to shut off its cameras during the testimony as requested. This led to the meeting going behind closed doors, which angered the 200 or so attendees who were then deprived of hearing Blackwell's testimony.

With today's gag order, a television station or a news source that compromises the integrity of the case will result in legal action by the court.

Show Me the Money--Campaign Funds Raised So Far

Washington, DC (TLS). The Liberty Sphere has reported many times that each candidate for President will need a campaign war-chest of at least 100 million dollars by January 1, 2008 in order to mount a competitive campaign.

Let's see who has the most money thus far, in order of their rank in total funds raised:

Over 20 Million, but under 30 Million
--Hillary Rodham Clinton
--Barack Hussein Obama
--Mitt Romney

Over 10 million, but under 20 million
--Rudy Giuliani
--John Edwards
--John McCain

Over 5 million, but under 10 million
--Bill Richardson

Under 5 million
--Chris Dodd
--Joe Biden
--Sam Brownback
--Tom Tancredo
--Ron Paul
--Mike Huckabee
--Duncan Hunter
--Dennis Kucinich
--Tommy Thompson
--Jim Gilmore
--Mike Gravel

As you can see by these official rankings, the three candidates who are well on their way to raising the necessary funds by Jan. 1 are Hillary Rodham Clinton, Barack Hussein Obama, and Mitt Romney. Those who are lagging a bit behind but are still easily within reach are Rudy Giuliani, John Edwards, and John McCain.

It is our opinion that anyone who at this point has less than 10 million dollars on hand in campaign cash is going to have a very tough time raising the amount needed by that all-important deadline.

For example, in order for Bill Richardson to have 100 million by Jan. 1 he will have to raise at least 14 million bucks PER MONTH between now and Dec. 31, 2007. That is roughly twice as much per month as the TOTAL he has raised thus far.

By anyone's estimation that is an exceedingly tall order.

This is why with each passing day I am growing more and more pessimistic about the prospects of a viable candidacy out of anyone who has raised less than 5 million by now. This bodes ill for candidates such as Duncan Hunter, Ron Paul, and Mike Huckabee, I am sorry to say.

Yet this is not an entirely impossible scenario. If a dark horse candidate catches on with a large segment of the electorate, the campaign cash will come rolling in in fairly short order.

But the time is growing short. We can thank the almighty intellects at the helm of both Parties for this sorry state of affairs. Jan. 1 is way too early to start primaries. But the Parties all moved up their primary dates in the name of attempting to be 'the very first one.'

As much as I hate the scenario they have created with primaries taking place as early as January, this is the reality we must face. And reality dictates that in this election cycle a candidate is going to need 100 million by January 1 in order to be competitive in those early primaries.


Washington, DC (TLS). Now that the identities and the religious affiliation of the 'Fort Dix Six' terrorists have been thoroughly and irrefutably documented, there is now absolutely no doubt that CAIR (the Council on American-Islamic Relations) is a disgraced and totally discredited organization.

Most thinking people knew this already. But Democrats in Congress have been playing cozy with them. So have the mainstream media.

When the story broke about the Fort Dix Six, the Muslim terrorists who planned to murder hundreds, if not thousands of U.S. soldiers on our own bases, CAIR launched a major blitz to 'instruct' the media not to refer to the terrorists as Islamic.

In fact, CAIR is on record as stating that the terrorists are not Muslim at all and that their planned attacks had nothing to do with their religious affiliation.

This was in spite of the fact that all six are, indeed, Muslim, and that they used Al Qaeda training tapes to get ready for the attacks. They also referred to Osama bin Laden as their hero.

CAIR has just shown the entire world its true colors.

As we have stated repeatedly here at The Liberty Sphere, CAIR is nothing but a terrorist front organization. The fact that they would attempt to influence the manner in which the foiled terrorist plot was reported, when everyone knows the terrorists are Muslim, only points to their sordid, underhanded mode of operation as an apologist organization for terrorism.

And remember, my friends, the Democrats in Congress consult with these people on a regular basis.

It will be interesting to see how long it takes, if ever, for the Democratic leadership in Congress to totally disavow itself of any connection to CAIR.


Washington, DC (TLS). Americans should be celebrating right now. Not only that, but they should be singing the praises of the Bush Administration. In less than one week, two major terrorist plots on our own soil have been foiled.

Somebody is obviously doing their job and doing it well.

Earlier in the week a terrorist cell operating in America's heartland, in St. Louis, was busted after information surfaced concerning Muslim Palestinian immigrants who were planning to use grenades, mines, and other heavy fire-power to launch attacks against American citizens.

The Liberty Sphere reported on this thwarted attack this past Sunday.

Then, just days later the FBI announced that it had foiled a major terrorist plot to murder hundreds of U.S. soldiers in major military bases around the country. The Muslim extremists were caught just in time.

My friends, these are major successes that should call forth congratulatory words from citizens all across the country. Had the President and his Administration not been doing their jobs, there is no way to ascertain the mass carnage that these two plots would have produced.

The Battered 'Dubya'

Washington, DC (TLS). President Bush has really taken a beating of late as there has been little good news to celebrate, with the exception of a roaring economy that boasts the strongest stock market in history, the fact that in less than one week the government has foiled two terrorist plots on our own soil, and that since 9/11 there has not been one single terrorist attack of great consequence against Americans.

With all of this terribly bad news it is easy to see why Mr. Bush would be so battered.

Seriously, it is, in fact, easy to understand why 'Dubya' was been taking a beating in the news. ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine, and Newsweek are all making certain that all you hear is the bad news.

Yes, the Leftwing monopoly on the news is still alive and well--and very powerful.

Thus, in spite of the strongest stock market in history, a unusually low unemployment rate, a very low rate of inflation, no terrorist attacks against Americans, and two foiled attempts at terrorism in one week, the President is still viewed with disdain by the mainstream media, and it does all it can to portray him in derogatory terms.

To show you just how powerful and influential the mainstream media still is, consider this: they have managed to turn Americans against the War on Terror and the War in Iraq, in spite of overwhelming support early-on.

Yet they claim we need to bring back the 'fairness doctrine' because some conservative commentator on the radio hurt their itty-bitty feelings.

So, the Left wants to take it over too. They want it all, not just mainstream TV, but they want conservative talk radio as well.

Granted, Dubya has made some mistakes along the way. All Presidents do. Hindsight is 20/20. And there have been times I have been very angry and disappointed with the President, especially over the Border Patrol debacle and the unfair prosecution and imprisonment of two honorable Border Patrol agents.

Yet, I like Mr. Bush. I always have. I believe that deep inside he is an honest man of honor. He has tried to keep his word, even to a fault. He has stuck to his guns, even when it cost him support. This is called leadership.

If the President has one fatal flaw when it comes to politics, it is in one of his greatest strengths. His ability to be decisive and then stick to his guns come thick or thin can easily turn into stubbornness. And in this business one cannot afford to be bull-headed. Flexibility is sometimes in order.

The President is in dire need of some irrefutable good news....not just the good news one expects to hear from Wall Street or conservative talk radio, but good news that the mainstream media cannot ignore--such as the capture or killing of Osama bin Laden.

It is not simply that Mr. Bush needs the good news for the sake of political fortune, but for his own personal sake. The President has appeared tired of late, a far-off look of sadness and longing in his eyes that one is not accustomed to seeing in Mr. Bush. It is clear that being a 'war-time President' in an era of unprecedented danger has begun to weigh heavily on him.

The President needs to know that many of us out here wish for some good news to come his way every bit as much as he does.

Stupid Questions

Washington, DC (TLS). Everyone knows that Chris Matthews of NBC is a partisan, biased, Leftwing nutcase. He has never attempted to hide the fact. He was seen recently on a late-night talk show using expletives to describe Republicans. He has done this before.

But the questions Matthews issued to the Republican candidates during their first debate cannot be described in any other way but 'stupid.'

'How would you feel about Hillary Clinton in the White House?'

'Well, ah, gee whiz there, Chris, I would just LOVE it if Hillary were in the White House! After all, that's why I'm running for President, you IDIOT!'

I wish someone had had the guts to answer the stupid question in that manner.

However, now it is Mike Wallace's turn to ask the stupid questions. In an upcoming 60 Minutes interview on CBS with Mitt Romney, Wallace reportedly asks Romney if he and his wife 'ever had premarital sex.'

Excuse me, Mr. Wallace, but with all due respect this is an IDIOTIC question that demeans your entire distinguished career.

So does it all come down to this? I suppose the start of it all was the question put to Bill Clinton in 1992, 'Boxers or briefs?'

The news business has reached a very low ebb. Not only do they think we want to know what type of underwear the candidates wear, but they have the unmitigated gall to ask an opponent what he/she thinks if their rival wins the White House. DUH!

And who cares if Mitt Romney and his wife had premarital sex!

We can only hope that with Fox News sponsoring the next debate, we will get some questions that are worthy of a serious dialogue concerning the nation's future. It would be hard to imagine Britt Hume or John Gibson asking the candidates such blatantly mindless questions that have nothing to do with their ability to be President.

No wonder none of the Democrats want to face Fox News reporters asking the questions!

But, since apparently the Dems have insisted that only so-called 'mainstream' news organizations sponsor their debates--you know, the ones that want to know about premarital sex--I have come up with a few stupid questions the mighty heavy-weights of ABC, CBS, NBC, and CNN could ask the Democrats.

'Mrs. Clinton, are you presently taking prescription hormonal therapy for post-menopausal women? And could this medication impair your decision-making?'

'Mr. Obama, which brand of smokes do you prefer? Winstons? Benson and Hedges? Would you offer Hillary a smoke if you were to light up after the debate?'

'Mr. Biden, are you standing there lusting after Hillary while waiting for your next question? And would you describe Hillary as an attractive woman or more of a bulldog?'

'Mr. Dodd, have you ever engaged in cross-dressing?'

'Mr. Edwards, if elected, would you disclose just who it is that does your hair? Chris Matthews and others of us want to know.'

'Mr. Kucinich, how many more times do you think you will have to position yourself to be photographed with President Bush before people remember who you are?'

'Mr. Gravel, do YOU even remember who you are?'

And finally.....

'Mr. Richardson, since you served in the Clinton White House and are friends of Bill (and we all know Bill talks)....tell us what all of America wants to know...does Hillary wear thong panties?'

Washington, DC (TLS). Virginia Attorney-General Robert McDonnell is warning New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg that if he continues to send undercover investigators into Virginia to try to catch gun dealers in illegal sales, he will be charged with a felony.

Bloomberg contends that gun dealers in Virginia are responsible for illegal guns winding up on the streets of NYC.

Thus, the Mayor, ignoring the separation of powers and limitations of jurisdictions, has been sending in the undercover cops to Virginia.

Has Bloomberg ever stopped to notice that he has no power outside New York City?

The fact that Virginia's gun rights laws are more in line with the U.S. Constitution than NYC's bigoted, anti-gun hysteria gives the Mayor no right to ignore the boundaries of jurisdictions. And if he persists in this idiotic practice, he just may wind up in handcuffs.

As a matter of fact, given that Bloomberg has already been engaging in activity that could land him in legal hot water, The Liberty Sphere would encourage the Virginia Attorney-General go to ahead and charge Bloomberg with a felony.

This is the only way we are going to get some of this anti-Constitutional activity in this country stopped.

Ron Paul on the Move

Washington, DC (TLS). A dark horse Republican candidate for the Presidential nomination, Ron Paul, is apparently on the move in the polls. Late-breaking surveys are showing that the U.S. Representative from Texas has surprisingly gained much ground since the Republican debate in California.

The Liberty Sphere had picked Mitt Romney, Duncan Hunter, Mike Huckabee, and Jim Gilmore as the ones who helped themselves the most by their performance in the debate. Although we did not feel that Ron Paul made a particularly strong showing in the debate itself, his views certainly are attracting quite a bit of attention--and support.

Paul may well turn out to be the dark horse candidate to watch in this race.

The real key is fundraising. Although The Liberty Sphere picked Duncan Hunter early-on as our favorite, we have frankly been worried of late concerning his ability to raise the necessary funds to compete next year. And that goes for most of the candidates.

In order to mount a competitive campaign in the Winter and Spring of 2008, each candidate will need 100 million dollars in their coffers. So far, only Mitt Romney has shown that he can raise that kind of money.

Thus, if Ron Paul or any of the others are going to emerge as strong candidates to go head-to-head against Hillary or Obama, they are going to have to start reeling in the cash.


Washington, DC (TLS). According to official statistics of the U.S. military, fully 88% of Kansas' National Guard troops are stateside and capable of being deployed in the aftermath of the Greensburg tornado disaster.

This means that Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius lied.

The Kansas Governor has been in a war of words with President Bush ever since she used the tornado disaster as a platform to bash Bush and criticize the war. Sebelius, almost immediately after the disaster, claimed that National Guard troops were not available because 'most of them had been deployed to Iraq.'

This is a complete fabrication and barefaced lie.

In fact, Guard troops are available from a variety of sources, including neighboring states. Only a fraction of National Guard personnel have been deployed to Iraq.

The fact that Governor Sebelius immediately began the blame game after the tornado struck is highly suspicious. But it is a part of a national trend ever since Hurricane Katrina. Blame Bush for all death and injury in the wake of a natural disaster.

This was the modus operandi of the Democratic machine in Louisiana after Katrina. The Louisiana Governor, a U.S. Senator, and the Mayor of New Orleans, all in unison, blamed Bush for the aftermath.

In actuality, had the state of Louisiana and local New Orleans officials following official, written protocol and mandatory disaster policies, most of the residents of New Orleans would have been evacuated before the hurricane struck. Official policy states that school buses are to be deployed as evacuation vehicles in the event of a major disaster. Government officials in Louisiana knew several days in advance that New Orleans would take a hit.

Yet the school buses remained parked in the lots.

And when the storm waters rose, thousands of buses were sitting there flooded under several feet of water--buses that could have been used to save thousands of lives.

At present, there are truckloads of lies being perpetrated by Democrats and Leftists on a variety of issues. Yet to date, no source within the mainstream media has taken them to task.


Barack Hussein Obama claimed this week that Osama bin Laden was responsible for 10,000 American deaths.

Ahem. Senator, actually, it is less than 3000.

Yet the mainstream media grants him a pass as they always do Democrats. If this had been President Bush, the gaffe would have been blared all over the airwaves, complete with endless jokes by the late-night comedians.

But when Obama does it, nary word.

Who, then, is going to confront Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius about her lies?

Don't hold your breath.

Who Is Ron Paul?

Washington, DC (TLS). Although polls show that former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney came out the winner in the first Republican Presidential debate, another name has surfaced among the eight announced candidates as one who is gaining some support. His name is Ron Paul from Texas.

Ron Paul serves the U.S. House, representing the 14th Congressional district of Texas. Since 1997 he has served the district with distinction as one who never compromises his principles and as an unwavering advocate for upholding the tenets of the U.S. Constitution.

Trained as a medical doctor, graduating from the Duke University School of Medicine, Dr. Paul served his country as a flight surgeon in the U.S. Air Force during the 1960s. He subsequently practiced medicine in Brazoria County, Texas for a number of years as a gynecologist/obstetrician.

Dr. Paul entered politics in the late 1970s and served in the U.S. House until 1984, when he voluntarily relinquished his seat in order to return to his medical practice. He returned to the House in 1997 and has carved out a solid reputation among his colleagues and constituents as a principled man of character who exhibits strong libertarian values. Those values include low taxes, small government, gun rights, strong defense, secure borders and immigration control, and a commitment to the pro-life position.

It is Dr. Paul's views on the Iraq War, however, that is causing the great stir among potential supporters. He has consistently said that the war is illegal according to the U.S. Constitution. His votes have portrayed that conviction. Paul voted against the Iraqi invasion and has repeatedly called for the war's end. He has even been known to say that President Bush should be impeached for sending troops to war.

Polls have shown that many who watched the Republican debate were impressed with Dr. Paul. The reason, I believe, is not simply the Iraq War. Politicians like Ron Paul are rare in America today. He does not jump on anyone's bandwagon, and proposed legislation is always put to the test of the Constitution.

Does the Constitution allow this sort of legislation? Is it consistent with the Founders' original intent?

The sudden interest in the candidacy of Ron Paul may be a signal that a significant portion of the American population is taking a new look at the Constitution as the basis for all law. Perhaps they are tired of big-government socialism AND big-government conservatism.

IF it is really true that the vast majority of the country wants 'change,' as many polls suggest, it is hard to conceive of anyone else in politics today who more fully embodies a complete change in the way government is viewed than Ron Paul.

The majority of candidates in both Parties represent business as usual, the same-old, same-old, a rehashing of old, failed ideas of an ideology that claims big government can solve the nation's ills.

One of the most solidly socialistic nations of Western Europe, France, recently showed the world that European styled Socialism does not work. For the first time in nearly 50 years, a conservative was elected as President of France. This speaks volumes.

To varying degrees ALL of the Democratic candidates are European-styled Socialists. And while the Republicans cannot be lumped together with them, they have their own baggage to carry as purveyors of 'big government conservatism,' which the Bush Administration, I am sorry to say, perfectly portrays.

Ron Paul has been a voice crying in the wilderness in the midst of both Democrats and Republicans, calling them back to the founding principles of small government and fiscal conservatism.

But Paul's philosophy is actually nothing new. It is called 'Constitutional Republicanism,' and it was embraced and espoused by the Founders of a nation called the United States of America.

Palfrey's List Under Tight Wraps at ABC News

Washington, DC (TLS). Never in the history of tabloid news has a news organization paid so much for exclusive rights to a story for so little in return. ABC News somehow mysteriously became the only recipient of the now-infamous Palfrey's List--the 'DC Madam's' list of high-profile clients--only to report days later that it may not be 'appropriate' to disclose the names to the public.

Now wait just a minute here. There is nothing 'appropriate' about this story in the first place. ABC obviously planned on using the information, or else they would not have made such a public display of the fact that they were in possession of the dreaded 'list.'

This only leads to a few fairly obvious conclusions. ABC News saw that the names on that list are not exclusive to the ones it intended to put on display as examples of the 'culture of corruption' among Republicans. Obviously, there are probably Republicans on the list, but you can bet your sweet box of condoms that there are Democrats on the list as well...some who are very powerful.

Immediately after ABC hinted at who was on the list by claiming that there is another Bush Administration official and the head of a conservative think-tank, suddenly and inexplicably ABC went silent. This can only mean one thing. They found some names on that list that would be very embarrassing to Democrats and Liberals.

Why, GASP!, there may even be some ABC News execs on that list! And what if.....oh my....

What if there are some high profile REPORTERS on the list?

My friends, this is the ONLY plausible reason I can think of as to why ABC News would suddenly get an attack of conscience. Suddenly, out of the blue, they 'want to do the right thing.'

Methinks there's something rotten here, and it sure ain't in Denmark.

At this point, it would be highly problematic to place any credence on any disclosures ABC News made concerning the list, given that they have had plenty of time to cull through it and remove the names of those they wish to protect.

Sorry, guys, but you blew it.


Washington, DC (TLS). A sworn affidavit by an FBI informant, who worked on the plan to thwart a terrorist plot in the making against U.S. soldiers on our own soil, shows beyond any doubt that the men who were arrested were, in fact, Muslim extremists intent on carrying out the Jihad.

In spite of CAIR's insistence that Islam had nothing to do with the terrorist plot, including demanding that news outlets avoid connecting the terrorists to Islam, The Smoking Gun has the goods that prove just who these men are.

A link is provided below that will take you to the website of The Smoking Gun. There you will find a 20-page sworn affidavit, provided by the FBI, that shows that the men who planned to kill in cold blood 'as many U.S. soldiers as they could,' are Islamic Jihadists.

It is entirely irrelevant that the men may not be connected directly with Al Qaeda or any other international terrorist organization, as if this makes them any less Muslim or any less terrorists.

In fact, the document you will read below provides details of the six men using Al Qaeda tapes and other materials by Osama bin Laden as sources of training to carry out this particular part of the Jihad. Whether or not they are actual members of Al Qaeda is a moot point. They nonetheless consider themselves as part of the Jihad, and obviously consider Osama bin Laden as a hero who models for them exactly how to conduct terrorist attacks against the West.

Be sure to read the entire document. It is a real eye-opener. And it erases any doubt that the terrorist plot uncovered by the FBI on Tuesday was, in fact, the work of Islamic terrorists.

Click here for the Smoking Gun document:


Washington, DC (TLS). The infamous Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) claims that the terrorist plot foiled by the FBI on Tuesday was in no way connected to Islam.

CAIR has plenty of influence in American politics with Democrats who control Congress, including helping Muslim Keith Ellison (D-MN) get elected to the House.

But CAIR is known by its detractors as a terrorist-front organization. Many point to the fact that CAIR demanded that the City of Los Angeles remove a billboard naming Osama bin Laden as a terrorist, just after 9/11, because, as CAIR put it, 'The message was offensive to Muslims.'

Here is the complete the story on CAIR's comments concerning the six MUSLIM EXTREMISTS arrested by the FBI on Tuesday:

'( - The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) Tuesday said it was pleased that the FBI had foiled a plot to attack U.S. military bases but urged media organizations and public officials not to link the case to Islam. Six men arrested in New Jersey on suspicion of planning to attack military bases in or near New Jersey with the intention of killing service personnel are being described by officials as Islamic radicals. Four are Muslim ethnic Albanians from the former Yugoslavia, and the other two are originally from Turkey and Jordan, according to law enforcement officials. In a statement, CAIR said it was "repeat[ing] the American Muslim community's condemnation and repudiation of all those who would plan or carry out acts of terror while falsely claiming their actions have religious justification." The group also asked "media outlets and public officials [to] refrain from linking this case to the faith of Islam. The council asked mosques and Islamic institutions in New Jersey and nationwide to report any incidents of anti-Muslim backlash." CAIR said in the statement that it has issued "innumerable condemnations of terror." Critics of the organization have long noted its consistent refusal to denounce Hamas and Hizballah, two groups on the State Department's list of foreign terrorist organizations. They also point to the involvement of some individuals evidently linked to CAIR in terror-related activities. CAIR denies the accusations.'

FBI Says 'Muslim Extremists' Planned to Kill Hundreds

Washington, DC (TLS). The FBI is reporting today that the men who were arrested on Tuesday for attempting to carry out a terrorist plot to kill hundreds of U.S. soldiers were 'Muslim extremists.'

Using covert surveillance for over a year the FBI tracked the movements and plans of the Islamic Jihadists as they planned a major terrorist attack on our own soil, at some of our largest military bases.

According to the FBI, 'Today we dodged a bullet.'

Feinstein Scandal Won't Go Away Despite Media Blackout

Washington, DC (TLS). The Dianne Feinstein conflict of interest scandal that led to her husband's pocketing of millions of dollars' worth of government contracts is not going away, say government watchdog groups.

In spite of the mainstream media blackout of the story, and the Democrat-controlled Senate's attempt to hide it, this scandal just keeps building steam.

According to California law, the funds that went to the spouse of Senator Feinstein are considered to be hers as well as her husbands, according to a legal statute known as 'community property law,' which maintains that all benefits, assets, and profits accumulated by one partner in a marriage is considered the joint property of both spouses.

This means, in short, that by channeling government contracts to her husband's companies, not only was Feinstein helping her husband's businesses, but she was helping herself...a clear conflict of interest.

The Fred Thompson Speech to Lincoln Club of Orange County, California

Washington, DC (TLS). Former U.S. Senator Fred Thompson chose the setting of The Lincoln Club of Orange County, California, to give a major speech on a variety of issues concerning public policy, in anticipation of his upcoming announcement as a candidate for the Republican nomination for President.

The former Tennessee Senator was unusually low-keyed in this address in comparison to his normally energetic and engaging persona. However, this address was not about fluff. This was heady stuff.

Thompson's 30-minute address touched on everything from the War in Iraq to globalization to immigration control, and everything in between. One might think that nothing of great substance could be conveyed in such a short speech that covered so many topics. However, the Senator proved that a few carefully-chosen words can convey great substance.

Lincoln himself proved the point in the Gettysburg Address.

Rather than recapitulate the speech here, we feel it is best that you read it for yourself. You will see that it was, indeed, a powerful speech of great national significance.

Advocacy Group Tells Illegal Aliens Not To Cooperate with Authorities

Washington, DC (TLS). A Maryland-based illegal alien advocacy group is advising illegals caught in raids not to cooperate with U.S. law enforcement authorities.

This is yet another perfect example of U.S. citizens committing outright felonies, in the open, by the aiding and abetting of illegal aliens, which is designated a felony by the United States Code.

From politicians to businesses to religious denominations to advocacy groups, a certain segment of today's America population is showing the rest of us that it couldn't care less about the rule of law in this country.

The so-called 'path to citizenship' for illegals is a joke. There is ALREADY a path to citizenship in this country. It is called THE LAW. U.S. Law provides the exact guidelines for those wishing to become citizens.

Why are we giving a pass to those who break the law? It simply makes no sense.

And it is clear that those who help them break the law are just as guilty as they are.

N.C. Teacher Resigns in Same-Sex Scandal with Student

East Flat Rock, NC (TLS). The Henderson County, North Carolina town of East Flat Rock is the scene for the latest teacher sex scandal to hit the news wires. Julie Culbertson, who had taught at East Henderson High School in this N.C. mountain town, resigned her position after being charged with engaging in sexual activity with an under-age female student at the high school.

Henderson County law enforcement officials state that both the student and her parents are fully cooperating with their investigation.

Meanwhile, a group of students who support the popular Culbertson, staged a rally to urge school officials to rehire the teacher. School officials informed the students that the matter is entirely out of their hands, given that Culbertson resigned and is under investigation.

A court hearing for Culbertson's arraignment is scheduled for June.

The Liberty Sphere will provide updates as needed...


Washington, DC (TLS). Liestoppers is reporting a legal bombshell of a story concerning corruption among North Carolina District Attorneys, which apparently has reached a fever pitch.

The D.A.s publicly scorned Durham District Attorney Mike Nifong several months ago in an apparent attempt to save their own carcasses that were on the line as Nifong exhibited for the entire world what is wrong with the North Carolina system of justice, District Attorneys in particular.

As you will see in the Liestoppers article below, that move was only a ruse. The N.C. D.A.s have now shown their true colors by lobbying the state legislature to make legal the nifonging of innocent citizens! The D.A.s wish to legalize the withholding of vital evidence from defense attorneys, just as Nifong did in the Duke lacrosse rape hoax.

The Liberty Sphere has been very concerned for quite a number of months now about the burgeoning corruption that is growing like a cancer within the entirety of North Carolina state government, including the Department of Social Services. If what we are seeing in DSS and among the D.A.s is any indication of the state of North Carolina government, then it is clear the citizens are getting shafted big-time.

SHOCKER! Liberal Professors Begin to Support Gun Rights

Washington, DC (TLS). As they say, politics often makes for strange bedfellows. Who would have thought that liberal law professors in some of the top law schools in America would now be supporting gun rights?

For years the prevailing wisdom at Harvard, Yale, Princeton, and other bastions of legal liberalism was that the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution only preserves a 'collective right' rather than an individual right. In other words, many legal scholars maintained that gun rights refers only to society as a whole in maintaining a militia rather than protecting an individual's right to own a firearm.

Apparently a few significant members of the leftwing intelligentsia have seen the light and taken note of the entirely illogical basis of that position within the context of the Bill of Rights, which specifically protects individual rights.

Professor Lawrence H. Tribe of Harvard, who for years held that the Second Amendment pertained only to a collective right, stated that his earlier views on the subject were shaped by consensus and political preference rather than a serious consideration of the amendment's text, history, and place in the structure of the Constitution.

By considering these key, crucial components of understanding the intent of the Constitution, Tribe states that he came to embrace the Second Amendment as an individual right.

'My conclusion came as something of a surprise to me, and an unwelcome surprise,' said Tribe. 'I have always supported as a matter of policy very comprehensive gun control.'

How could a group of men so thoroughly revered be so thoroughly wrong?

The key to understanding the transformation is in Tribe's own words. Earlier in his career, taking a serious look at the text itself, the history of the text, and its place in the construction of the Constitution, was not considered important. The only two issues of utmost importance were consensus of legal opinion in the present, and one's own political bias.

In that one sentence alone, Tribe has shot to bits the contention on the part of many liberal law professors at some of the nation's top schools that they do, in fact, consider original intent as the most significant component of Constitutional interpretation.

Obviously, someone is lying.

Tribe has openly admitted to the fact that his NEGLIGENCE in considering the text itself, its history, and its place in the construction of the Constitution is the thing that led to his earlier conclusion that gun rights do not apply to individuals. Only when he seriously considered original intent did he come to the conclusion that he had been very wrong, and that the Second Amendment protects an individual's right to own a gun.

Of course, those of us who have studied Constitutional law for years knew all along that Liberal law professors discount original intent. This is the ONLY explanation for their blatant disregard for the words of the Founders on the subject of firearms, and for their propagation of an interpretation of the Second Amendment that was so totally foreign to the mindset and convictions of the men who penned those words.

Professor Tribe, and others like him, are to be heartily commended for having the courage and integrity to admit the errors of their youth and to publicly embrace the fact that the Second Amendment refers to individual rights just as surely as does the First Amendment.


Washington, DC (TLS). This is a major Liberty Alert. For months we have been alert to rumblings among politicos in the Beltway that Democrats may revive the Fairness Doctrine from the 1940s as a means to silence conservative talk radio.

What started as rumor and whispers has now become reality in the form of a bill entitled, 'The Media Ownership Reform Act,' and is sponsored by Leftist Democrat Rep. Maurice Hinchey of New York.

Hinchey has made no attempt to hide his agenda in sponsoring this bill. At a forum entitled the 'National Conference for Media Reform,' which is funded by atheist Democrat billionaire George Soros, Hinchey blasted Limbaugh, Hannity, O'Reilly and other conservatives for being responsible for leading America into war.

Under his bill, he said, their voices would be removed from the airwaves.

'All that stuff will end,' Hinchey stated.

The Democrats and the Leftwing in America have suffered ever since the advent of conservative talk radio. For the very first time since the invention of electronic media, the Left has steadily lost its monopoly on the news. CBS, ABC, and NBC totally dominated the airwaves with a liberal slant on news stories for nearly 50 years.

It is interesting that during this era the Left enjoyed some of its greatest success. The forces that control the media get to determine content as well as which news stories get air time. The Democrats have been exiled from their perch as kings of the hill with the advent of conservative talk radio and Fox News.

They are determined to regain their lost position of power.

The problem is that the left-leaning media did not go away. It is still there in all its glory. ABC, CBS, NBC, and now CNN are all still giving us their leftward spin on news items, as always. But for the Liberals this is not enough, particularly in light of the fact that these news organizations have been losing viewers.

Thus, using the ruse of 'the Fairness Doctrine,' the Democrats want Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, and others forced off the air by insisting on equal time for opposing points of view.

Of course, this demand does not apply to CBS, ABC, or NBC news programs, for as always, the Liberals vehemently deny any bias. In their minds it simply does not exist. The Left views ABC, CBS, CNN, and NBC as totally fair and unbiased sources of news.

And thus, with the Fairness Doctrine forcing conservative talk radio off the air, once again the Democrats and the Left will hold a complete monopoly on the news.

This is a George Soros-inspired scheme from start to finish. Soros' philosophy is that it is essential to control the news outlets as a prelude to introducing sweeping reforms in society, essentially turning the U.S. into a socialist nation.

My friends, this is a call to action. It is now time to contact your lawmakers in Washington to tell them that you vehemently oppose the Hinchey bill, 'The Media Ownership Reform Act.' And don't let them convince you that this bill is simply aimed at preventing monopolies from forming in the media, as some of them will surely try to do. Actually this bill does exactly the opposite. It will CREATE a leftist monopoly, meaning that Liberals will completely control the dissemination of news.

In the Senate, Leftist, Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont is the point-person for this bill.

So, don't waste precious time in putting off contacting your representatives in Washington, both in the House AND Senate. We MUST stop this push to silence conservative talk radio!

Washington, DC (TLS). A major terrorist operation, based out of St. Louis, Missouri, has been busted by U.S. law enforcement officials who seized massive amounts of fire power, including hand grenades and mines.

The terrorists who have been arrested were described in the local St. Louis press as 'Palestinian immigrants,' which of course is a catch-word for Muslim extremists who are Palestinian.

Obama Caught Red-Handed

Washington, DC (TLS). On the campaign trail, Barack Hussein Obama has played a game of deftly tweaking his remarks on the Israeli-Palestinian problem to fit the particular audience he happens to be addressing. On the surface this is no great sin, for it is a tenet of public speaking that the speaker address the issues that are of particular interest to the group that is being addressed.

With Obama, however, the problem goes far beyond that.

Obama has clearly taken two opposite positions. When speaking to a Jewish-friendly crowd, he clearly portrays himself as a friend to Israel. But when addressing Arab-Muslim-Palestinian-friendly audiences, he blatantly takes an anti-Israel stance.

Atlas Shrugs has the goods on Obama with a videotape of the candidate, caught red-handed in the midst of outright lies.

Surprise! France to Elect U.S.-Friendly President

Washington, DC (TLS). Last-minute polling in France's important Presidential elections show that the country is set to elect its first admittedly pro-American President in many years. French voters will go to the polls today to elect a successor to Jacques Chirac, who is retiring.

French-American relations have been strained, particularly as a result of the Iraq War. Chirac certainly made no friends in the U.S. by condemning Americans for the war, charging that we were invading Iraq 'only for the oil,' when it was Jacques Chirac himself who had been making under-the-table deals with Saddam Hussein for his oil.

Even more damaging was the revelation that Chirac secured Saddam's oil by giving him the capability of developing nuclear power. France provided Iraq with its very first nuclear reactor under the leadership of Chirac.

All polls indicate that conservative Nicolas Sarkozy will beat Socialist Segolene Royal in a landslide.

This political campaign bears at least some significance for the upcoming U.S. election cycle. Hillary Clinton is a Royal-styled European Socialist who even uses some of the same rhetoric Royal has unleashed on the campaign trail, referring to windfall profits of private enterprise as opportunity for government to pad its coffers.

Royal has, in fact, demonized private enterprise in France. While Hillary Clinton has not used quite the same acerbic terminology of Royal, she has yet repeatedly pointed to the profits of the oil companies, claiming that 'we will take that money and put it into a national resource for funding alternative sources of energy.'

The French, however, have obviously grown weary of Socialism and will for the first time in several generations elect a solid conservative who views close ties to the U.S. as a virtue and not a vice.

In spite of the fact that Socialist candidates in France get the backing of the less popular Communist Party, this will still not be enough to stem the tide that is breaking in Sarkozy's favor.

Perhaps with this encouraging change in Europe, there will finally be some realistic, hard-hitting proposals for dealing with the near-civil-war-like conditions that exist in France at the hands of Muslim extremists.

We can only hope that Mr. Sarkozy will join the U.S., Great Britain, Australia, and the Eastern European block in the fight against global terrorism. This would be the best news to come out of Europe in many a day.
