Reuters: "School was out in Chicago on Monday and parents scrambled for child care after public school teachers staged the first strike in a quarter century over reforms sought by Mayor Rahm Emanuel and endorsed by President Barack Obama's administration. Some 29,000 teachers and support staff in the nation's third-largest school district were involved, leaving parents of 350,000 students between kindergarten and high school age to find alternative supervision."

Martin Sheen Narrates New Film on the Chinese Threat to the U.S.
By James Hirsen
A new documentary is focusing attention on an issue that has frequently been raised by the Mitt Romney campaign and also remains of paramount concern to real estate mogul and reality television star Donald Trump. “Death by China” is a movie based on a book that was co-written by filmmaker Peter Navarro, who is also a business professor at the University of California, Irvine.

Radical Islam at the DNC
By Al Fadi
Time and time again the Qur’an, the Muslim’s Holy Book makes it very clear that the ultimate purpose of Islam is to make the religion supreme and dominate over all other beliefs (including Atheism). However, despite clear evidence in the Islamic text, and despite the many incidents by its radical followers to fulfill this dangerous purpose of religious domination, many on the left are completely oblivious to this clear and present danger, which has been vividly expressed - not only by Islamic researchers and scholars, or former Muslims, but even by moderate Muslims as well.
The latest incident in North Carolina, allowing the Muslim Friday (Jum’a) prayer to take place in a public park on the Friday preceding the 2012 DNC convention, is a classic example of such ignorance on the left’s part by not realizing the hidden religious messages sent by the radical Islamic community to those around them. It is true that the U.S. Constitution permits the freedom of religion without any favoritism to one religion over another, yet lately it seems that the liberal camp is showing more favoritism to the religion of Islam over and above what is considered tolerable, especially when such favor is granted to the radical followers of Islam who are intolerant of others.
