Homage to a great news source

| | Comments (6) | TrackBacks (0)

The thought just struck me that WorldNetDaily is a great news source, and I've never written a post to give it its props. Sure, they have to shill a little and sometime the news has an angle, but in the post-Dan Rather era, that cow has long left the barn.

In honor of this fabulous Web site, I am instituting a new category here, "Latest from WorldNetDaily," and I hope our other bloggers will take it upon themselves once in a while just to post a link to WND for any reason whatsoever.

To get the ball rolling, I'll link to a thought-piece on The candidate who can win in 2008, by WorldNetDaily commentator Rev. Jerry Falwell:


First, any presidential candidate who wishes to secure the evangelical vote, which is essential to victory for a Republican, must be a social and fiscal conservative. That's a given. While the mushy middle of the Republican Party will want a candidate to be nebulous on issues such as abortion, same-sex marriage and religious freedom, no Republican candidate can survive the primaries who is afraid of taking a stand on these critical social issues...

The construction of a 2,000-mile fence (which some estimate will cost $10 billion) across our southwest border, from San Diego to the Gulf of Mexico, guarded by enough of America's finest to stop the endless flow of scores of thousands of illegal aliens into this nation, must be the absolute commitment of our next champion. The bleeding must be stopped immediately.

Further, all illegal aliens who are convicted felons must be deported as a beginning. The remaining illegal aliens must be put into a lawful naturalization program with a reasonable time limit to learn English, meet the long-standing standards every legal immigrant has always met, pay taxes on all income (which they should be allowed to continue earning) and finally take the oath.


I have to say I disagree with Falwell here. First, I think immigration is a higher priority than "social issues" in deciding on a candidate for 2008. Second, I'm not sure at all about a "lawful naturalization program" that lets millions of people jump in line ahead of the people who have been trying to get in legally.

Nevertheless, Falwell's article is a valuable addition to the debate, and we at NOVA TownHall - like our brethren at WorldNetDaily - are nothing else if not open to free discussion, unlike so many institutions on the "progressive" side of the fence.

Certainly, deporting illegal immigrants is what Jesus would do.

So that your readers will know just what a great, reliable site World Net Daily is, and give them an insight where you're coming from, too, here are a few examples:

On Hurricane Katrina:
President Bush is not to blame for the rampant immorality of blacks. Had New Orleans' black community taken action, most would have been out of harm's way. But most were too lazy, immoral and trifling to do anything productive for themselves.
All Americans must tell blacks this truth. It was blacks' moral poverty – not their material poverty – that cost them dearly in New Orleans.

On Flight 93 and 9/11:
When all the evidence is lined up, it is highly consistent with a heat-seeking missile striking Flight 93, probably around 10:05:30. The evidence strongly infers that the terrorists did not fly that jet into the ground, at least not without help from an external event. The evidence becomes compelling when the federal government's factually false propaganda is factored in....Why would the president and his staff not admit the shoot-down?

On how Nazi Germany can serve as an example for solving the immigration problem:

Not only will it work, but one can easily estimate how long it would take. If it took the Germans less than four years to rid themselves of 6 million Jews, many of whom spoke German and were fully integrated into German society, it couldn’t possibly take more than eight years to deport 12 million illegal aliens, many of whom don’t speak English and are not integrated into American society.

Zimzo:

I saw no factual errors in any of those articles. Why you posted commentary pieces is beyond me -- we're dealing with FACTS here.

If you wish to dissuade us from believing WND, then you need to show a pattern of errors in their facts, as I have done with you.

Not sure what those links were supposed to prove except that WND has lots of different writers. It's still a very useful site. Alexander Cockburn used to write for the WSJ op-ed page.

Also, I advocate first cracking down on employers and building a fence. Make all companies play by the same rules. Then the illegal worker problem will take care of itself. Floating the idea of amnesty with no fence built is insane.

It's not insanity if you want foreigners to overrun the country.
