The New Chief Justice: Standing Tall amidst the Dwarves

Posted by Mark on September 12, 2005

Great opening statement, done without notes. Not sure how many Democrats heard it in their rush to the cameras and microphones.

This is just weird. If you’ve ever had that dream where you are falling and falling, you’ll relate to this site…

Anniversaries: 9/9/04 Rathergate

Posted by Mark on September 12, 2005

No matter your political stripe, if you are a blogger, 9/9/04, and the days that followed were red letter days. Blogging came in to its own. Here are my posts for that period. Start on the 9th, and work your way up. Ah, those were the days…

Racist, Bigoted, Socialist Reporting

Posted by Mark on September 12, 2005

I had intended to post today on the Roberts hearings, and I’m sure we’ll spend alot of time on that. But this piece from The New York Times deserves mention today. (HT: Hugh Hewitt)

This “news report” from Elizabeth Bumiller illustrates as few can the bigotry and bias of The New York Times, and the MSM that echoes it. Here’s what she said about T.D. Jakes:

“I said, ‘Grab some black people who look like they might be preachers,’ ” said the supporter, who asked not to be named because he did not want to be identified as criticizing the White House.Three days later, on Mr. Bush’s next trip to the region, the president appeared in Baton Rouge at the side of T. D. Jakes, the conservative African-American television evangelist and the founder of a 30,000-member megachurch in southwest Dallas.

Bishop Jakes, a multimillionaire and best-selling author, is to deliver the sermon this Friday at the Washington National Cathedral, his office said, where Mr. Bush will mark a national day of prayer for Hurricane Katrina’s victims. The bishop’s style of preaching is black Pentecostal – he roars and rumbles in performances that got him on the cover of Time magazine as “America’s best preacher” in 2001. More important to Mr. Rove, he has become a vital partner in the White House effort to court the black vote.

Now, if you knew nothing about T.D. Jakes, what would you take from the above paragraphs? He’s a mulimillionaire, a Bush supporter, a “Black Pentacostal” (read “snake handler) and quite a performer. Oh, and he’s important to the evil Karl Rove.

Funny how the MSM would never dream of writing the above about Rev. Jesse or Rev. Al, both of whom are multimillionaires.

For some info about the ministry of T.D. Jakes, go here.

He’s not perfect, and has some significant flaws in his theology, but Rev. Jakes deserves far better than he got from The New York Times.

Blogger for Word

Posted by zaphriel on September 12, 2005

Blogger for Word

I just down loaded Blogger for Word last week, and boy does it same me some headache. It doesn’t do pictures yet, but if I have something to write about, I can and BAM, it’s online. Publishing from word is easy and almost just like Blogger. Ok so here is the downfall, it posts just like blogger. For the Beginner, that’s not bad at all, but for more advanced users, this is a real pain in the butt, just like blogger it adds it’s own extra tags and unnecessary stuff. That’s about all the headache though, a good idea from Blogger, with hopefully a follow-up that will be even better (You know like allowing pictures).

The Falling Man

Posted by Mark on September 12, 2005

We all saw the picture, if only once. This man represents an estimated 200 people who jumped to their deaths on 9/11. The MSM immediately shut these pictures down as too disturbing. Yet, now CNN threatens to sue for the right to show the bloated bodies of the dead in New Orleans. Bias, anyone?
