Tweet I just happened upon this account of a Star Trek Movie press event attended by Dave Itzkoff of the New York Times.  J.J. Abrams was the host, and four clips from the upcoming blockbuster were shown.  This is the “meat” of what Itzkoff reported (spoilers):   1. The young James T. Kirk (played by Chris Pine) is drinking forlornly at a bar in 23rd century Iowa (where they still serve Budweiser). Without much success, he flirts with a young Starfleet recruit named Uhura (Zoe Saldana) and picks a fight...

Tweet John McCain, Cindy McCain, Miss Buffalo Chip , originally uploaded by thisiswar3005. As you may know, Senator John McCain made headline today because he suggested that his wife try out to be “Miss Buffalo Chip” before 50,000 bikers at the Sturgis Biker Rally in South Dakota. Here’s my video take on it: I read somewhere that McCain didn’t know “Miss Buffalo Chip” was a topless contest, but this photo shows that it’s possible both he and Cindy saw the t-shirt at the right, which...

Tweet Senator and GOP Presidential Candidate John McCain appeared on Bill O’Reilly’s show and let O’Reilly do the talking, and then agreed with him. This is what was said: Bill O’Reilly: But do you understand what the New York Times wants, and the far-left want? They want to break down the white, Christian, male power structure, which you’re a part, and so am I, and they want to bring in millions of foreign nationals to basically break down the structure that we have. In that regard, Pat Buchanan...

Tweet Ronald Kessler’s the person behind an example of the most irresponsible example of journalism ever seen. In a Newsmax article, Kessler claimed that Senator Barack Obama was “in the pews” for a “hate America” sermon, but in point of fact, at 1:30 PM EST and 12:30 PM CST Senator Obama was in Miami speaking at the National LaRaza event. For Senator Obama to make the speech, he would have to leave Chicago at 7 AM CST, making it physically impossible for Obama to be there. Kessler’s been...

Tweet Katharine Seelye a reporter for The New York Times wrote an article about tommorrow’s CNN / YouTube Debates where she links to two of my videos twice in paragraphs close to each other, but fails to identify me as the same person! This is both sad and funny. But it’s mostly sad and not that funny. Here’s the part of the article I’m writing about: “ Another asks the candidates if they would put their friends in important government jobs. “Or are you going to hire the best and the brightest?”...

Tweet I just read this path-breaking editorial in today’s New York Times which calls for the U.S. to get out of Iraq and lays out a time table in a sub section called “The Mechanics Of Withdrawl. President Bush should feel the walls closing in around him. Yes, he’s a lame-duck president, but one would think that he’d not use this “I can do what I want” status to, well, do what he wants to do and the public be damned. But that certainly is the way he’s behaving. Look, policy...
