By John Jalsevac NEW YORK, June 25, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) – One of the most liberal newspapers in the country, the New York Times, has run an op-ed piece that argues that by standing immovably by the “pro-choice” position, the Democratic party and presidential candidates are alienating the fundamental voter demographic that might ensure the party victory in 2008.

Australian PM Bans Aboriginals from Porn in Effort to Stem Societal Collapse

By John Jalsevac SYDNEY, Austrlia, June 22, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) – For decades now Australian officials have become increasingly aware of what has been termed a devastating societal breakdown within Australia’s aboriginal communities. Earlier this month, a report came out entitled Little Children are Sacred that documented the evidence for the continuing collapse of the aboriginal communities, including widespread and ever increasing alcohol and other substance abuse, gambling and violence, amongst other things.
