    Network coverage of the average, normal Americans, “grandparents,” “honor students,” “soccer moms,” “Republicans,” “Black and white, Democrat and Republican, young and old,” versus the reality of the angry, America-hating demonstrators which the networks ignored but which a writer for National Review Online was unable to avoid in the crowd.     He saw “Bush is the Real Terrorist” signs and discovered many were convinced Bush knew in advance of the 9-11 attacks. “It was like when Hitler burned down the Reichstag,” more than one remarked.

    4 state residents to look for peace on Iraq mission By Sarah Anne Wright Seattle Times staff reporter Four Washington residents, one from Seattle, are heading to Iraq on a mission of peace. The sponsor, Voices in the Wilderness, or Voices, as the group calls itself, opposes economic sanctions it says harm ordinary Iraqis. It has sent about 50 peace-delegate groups to Iraq since 1996.

Bill Frist will almost certainly be elected majority leader when the senate votes on a successor to Mississippi Sen. Trent Lott next month. The choice is a happy one for President George W.

    Enemies of the State by Timothy Rollins, Editor-in-Chief and Publisher December 6, 2002 With the recent news that the FBI is now on the lookout for special-interest terrorists committing crimes in the United States, it has been reported that those terrorists are not by any means limited to the likes of al-Qaeda and the lunatic fringes associated with them. The terms "special-interest extremism" or rather "eco-terrorism" are often used to better describe what are often called "tree huggers" - the Al Gore society, if you will. These people, who use Gore's book Earth in the Balance as a Bible of...
