John Howard's smart move: "Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi has welcomed Australia's decision to dispatch 450 more soldiers to Iraq to protect Japanese troops and keep order in Muthana Province. ''We welcome and laud the decision,'' Mr Koizumi said at his office. Chief Cabinet Secretary Hiroyuki Hosoda and Foreign Minister Nobutaka Machimura made similar remarks earlier in the day. ''The Japanese Government greatly appreciates, welcomes, and rates highly [the Australian deployment]," Mr Hosoda said. The Australian troops will be based mainly in the provincial capital of Samawah, where nearly 600 Japanese troops are stationed for humanitarian and reconstruction work".

There is an amazing NYT article here. More Africans have now come to America voluntarily than came as slaves. And, as we all know, immigrant blacks (Colin Powell, anyone?) do much better than American-born blacks. Present-day American blacks have been spoiled by welfare and the Democrat-sponsored culture of grievance. Immigrant blacks haven't.

Harvard professors still trying to destroy their own reputation as scholars: "In a rare second faculty meeting in a week, set for Tuesday afternoon, critics of Harvard University President Lawrence H. Summers are expected to excoriate him again for his leadership style and recent remarks about women in science and engineering". Interesting that it seems to be the students who strongly support Summers. They KNOW the ideological rigidity in what is taught and don't like it

Democrat racism: "The most powerful African-American member of the House of Representatives is calling on Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean to apologize for a racially insensitive joke he told Friday during an address to the Congressional Black Caucus. Asked on Tuesday if Dean should apologize for suggesting during his address that minorities usually work as servants, Rep. Charles Rangel told ABC Radio's Sean Hannity, "If he offended anybody, he certainly should." Critics say Dean crossed the line when he told the CBC, "You think the Republicans could get this many people of color in a single room? Only if they had the hotel staff in here." .... Lt. Gov. Michael Steele, who is Maryland's first black to hold that office, joined with former Rep. J.C. Watts yesterday to demand that Dean apologize, and expanded on his complaint last night. "I think it is rather presumptive [for Dean] to presume that the staff in the hotel is African-American," Steele told Fox News Channel's "Hannity & Colmes." Steele said the DNC chairman's remark was further evidence that the Democratic Party takes the black vote for granted. "If I or another Republican had made a statement like that, it would be all over the place," Steele added. "And so the reality is for me, when I read that and hear it, it's offensive, because what it says is you don't see me in any other role.""

Dick McDonald comments: "Doug Wead, part of Bush I's administration, has released tapes he secretly made of George W. Bush before he became President. Forgetting that he is selling a book, betraying a friend, and "not doing it for money", Wead has released a tape that the leftwing MSM has jumped all over that proves George W. Bush tried marijuana. This leaves the MSM in a quandary. By criticizing Bush, they criticise Gore, Clinton and the deliriously high editorial room at the NYT. By publishing the story, the author's book will reach a greater audience and that means the author's evaluation of Bush as a very important historical figure will be advanced. Dems won't like that".

Anti-democratic Democrats nabbed: "On 24 January 2005 five Kerry-Edwards campaign staffers were arrested for slashing the tires of 25 rental vans hired by the Republican Party to shuttle voters to the polls. If convicted, the suspects face a possible three-and-a-half years and $10,000 fine on each count of criminal damage to property. Those charged include Michael Pratt, 32, Sowande A. Omokunde, 25, Lewis G. Caldwell, 28, and Lavelle Mohammad, 35, all of Milwaukee; and Justin Howell, 20, of Racine. Among the Black defendants are the sons of prominent local politicians. Michael Pratt is the son of Marvin Pratt, who became acting mayor of Milwaukee when Mayor John Norquist stepped down in January 2004. Pratt lost the spring mayoral election under allegations of financial shenanigans, denying him the opportunity to be Milwaukee's first elected Black mayor. Pratt's wife famously blamed the loss on "White racism," calling Milwaukee "redneck America citifed." Sowande Omokunde is the son of Gwen Moore, a former state senator who last November became the first Black elected to the U.S. Congress from Wisconsin. The tire-slashing spree took place in the heart of her district - U.S. House District 4. At the foundation of Moore's campaign was a promise to prevent "voting rights violations." Yet she had 'no comment' when asked to explain her son's apparent desire to prevent elderly and handicapped Republicans from reaching the polls - a civil rights violation".

My latest posting on MarxWords shows what a feminist Marx wasn't. My latest posting on "A scripture blog" looks at Romans 1 & 2 and the Day of Judgment.



That power only, not principles, is what matters to Leftists is perfectly shown by the 2004 Kerry campaign. They put up a man whose policies seemed to be 99% the same as George Bush's even though the Left have previously disagreed violently with those policies. "Whatever it takes" is their rule.

Leftists are phonies. For most of them all that they want is to sound good. They don't care about doing good. That's why they do so much harm. They don't really care what the results of their policies are as long as they are seen as having good intentions.

The Big Lie of the late 20th century was that Nazism was Rightist. It was in fact typical of the Leftism of its day. It was only to the Right of Stalin's Communism. The very word "Nazi" is a German abbreviation for "National Socialist"
