    Harvard University has withdrawn the invitation given to Chelsea Manning to be a visiting fellow at the Institute of Politics at Harvard Kennedy School amid intense backlash over the controversial decision. In a statement issued at around midnight Friday, Douglas Elmendorf, dean of Harvard Kennedy School, admitted that naming Manning a visiting fellow for the fall semester was "a mistake." [Snip] "This decision now is not intended as a compromise between competing interest groups but as the correct way for the Kennedy School to emphasize its longstanding approach to visiting speakers while recognizing that the title of Visiting Fellow implies...

    Media Matters, the left-leaning media watchdog based in Washington D.C., is prone to employ the controversial and opinionated. Recently one of their senior fellows, MJ Rosenberg, was forced to step down based on a history of harsh, anti-semitic remarks. Now it appears the line has been crossed again. Senior Media Maters Fellow Eric Boehlert has seemingly mocked Patricia Smith, the mother of slain State Department employee Sean Patrick Smith, who recently blamed President Barack Obama for her son’s death.

    Occupy Wall Street protesters said yesterday that packs of brazen crooks within their ranks have been robbing their fellow demonstrators blind, making off with pricey cameras, phones and laptops -- and even a hefty bundle of donated cash and food. “Stealing is our biggest problem at the moment,” said Nan Terrie, 18, a kitchen and legal-team volunteer from Fort Lauderdale. “I had my Mac stolen -- that was like $5,500. Every night, something else is gone. Last night, our entire [kitchen] budget for the day was stolen, so the first thing I had to do was . . . get...

    RUSH: Remember, we had the audio yesterday, these teachers leading students in an anti-Walker chant, "Hey, hey! Ho, ho! Scott Walker's gotta go!" Can we get rid of the myth once and for all that school teachers, anymore, are these average, ordinary (as Obama wants to say), next-door neighbors who are just doing everything they can to further the educational experience of your children? That's not who they are. They are left-wing activists, active members of unions who are oriented first by a political agenda, second by their own well-being, and your kids come last. Can we just get that...

    Atheists push 'humanist' holidays By Karen Goldberg Goff April 25, 2008 Now that Earth Day is over, let the planning begin for the summer solstice and World Humanist Day in June. The Institute for Humanist Studies, an Albany, N.Y.-based nonprofit, is calling attention to its calendar of atheist holidays on its Web site, www.secularseasons.org. The group wants nonbelievers (or at least noncelebrators) to have a handy reference guide of the calendar of holidays honoring free thinkers, banned books and nature, among other themes. Matt Cherry, executive director of the Institute for Humanist Studies, says his group is trying to expand...

Guardsman Damion Pointin, from Abingdon, England and his pals braved continuing mortar fire to rush wounded colleague Lance Cpl. Karl Dobson to the medical centre within their camp.

    WASHINGTON, April 25, 2006 – Military "brats" are powerfully shaped by the culture they grow up in, and that culture makes a lasting impression, author Mary Edwards Wertsch said. Military brat Mary Edwards Wertsch is the author of "Military Brats: Legacies of Childhood Inside the Fortress." The book has been credited with recognizing the military as a home culture. Courtesy Photo  (Click photo for screen-resolution image);high-resolution image available. "It has everything to do with everything that's ever happened in my life," the St. Louis resident said.

    THE career of President Vladimir Putin of Russia was built at least in part on a lie, according to US researchers. A new study of an economics thesis written by Putin in the mid-1990s has revealed that large chunks of it were copied from an American text. Putin was labelled a plagiarist yesterday after a pair of researchers at the Brookings Institution, a Washington DC think tank, established that the Russian president’s academic credentials were based on a dissertation he had lifted in part verbatim from the Russian translation of a management study written by two professors at the University...

    CAMP HABBANIYAH, Iraq (Dec. 14, 2005) -- The majority of professional armed forces worldwide receive some form of standardized training in the operation and handling of the weapons they will use in combat. The fledgling Iraqi military and police forces didn’t receive this type of training until May 10, when instructors like Sgt. Michael Magallanez created the Iraqi Small Arms Weapons Instructor Course (ISAWIC) at the newly formed 2nd Marine Division Training Center (DTC) here. The 13-day course is the primary focus of the DTC and teaches Iraqi soldiers and American service members the fundamentals of marksmanship and the AK-series...

    <p>FBI agents monitored Web sites calling for protests against the 2004 political conventions in New York and Boston on behalf of the bureau's counterterrorism unit, according to FBI documents released under the Freedom of Information Act.</p> <p>The American Civil Liberties Union pointed to the documents as evidence that the Bush administration has reacted to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States by blurring the distinction between terrorism and political protest. FBI officials defended the involvement of counterterrorism agents in providing security for the Republican and Democratic conventions as an administrative convenience.</p>

    WASHINGTON - Accused of being insensitive to U.S. soldiers in Iraq (news - web sites) and their families, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld received a fresh endorsement Monday from President Bush (news - web sites), who called him "a caring fellow." "I have heard the anguish in his voice and seen his eyes when we talk about the danger in Iraq and the fact that youngsters are over there in harm's way," Bush said at a White House news conference. Congressional criticism of Rumsfeld has increased in recent weeks, with lawmakers of both parties accusing him of appearing indifferent to...

    The purpose of FreeRepublic.com's multiple message boards is to limit the topics for each board to particular topics. Posting the same message on all the boards defeats the purpose of multiple-boards for special topics. It is very annoying to see the same message on every bulletin board. PLEASE!

  • "A FUNERAL FOR THE LEFT" (An idea for Freeper activists)

    04/15/2003 3:09:20 PM PDT · by A_Conservative_in_Cambridge · 23 replies · 200+ views
    During the week of May 2 - 9, the sad remnants of the "peace" (i.e., "appeasement") movement are hoping to make a media splash by holding an event called "A Funeral for Democracy" on college campuses. The sponsor is an alleged "student" group called the Student Peace Action Network (SPAN), which appears to be a front for commie sympathizers (see Michael Tremoglie's article at http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/ReadArticle.asp?ID=5039). The "Funeral" arrangements can be examined at http://www.studentpeaceaction.org/act.html. In my humble opinion, this event may present a wonderful opportunity for freedom-loving folks to turn the left's silly message upside down and to speak the truth....
