    NJC Library of Congress Su10The National Journalism Center is finishing up the second week of it’s summer program and is in high gear! After a few days of orientation in the nation’s capital, interns have settled into their placements, working for top newspaper, radio, television, magazine and online media organizations. During their time with NJC, interns have discussed topics pertaining to legislation, economics, and media mediums. For their first seminar, interns read The Law by Frederick Bastiat, gaining insight into the realm of philosophy, law and justice in legislation and the public arena.

    In just two weeks, numerous interns have captured bylines at their media outlets. Subjects ranged from opinions and debates on off-shore drilling, the “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” legislation, foreign policy, religion, political party movements, and recent events like the BP oil spill and Elena Kagan’s Supreme Court nomination. Here are a sampling of recent articles!

    Joel Gehrke, Washington Examiner - Presidential doublethink in the Bagram habeas corpus case

    • Guardian Apostate,You know what, I agree with you. I even agree that much of this post and the attendant terahd sounds like the work of a seven year old.Anyway, the extremists who are putting Europe in danger are the very people who are, actually, running the various countries of Europe. You are most certainly correct about that.Belgium and Brussels are the first ones that must go. I have a hard time believing that you Brits can not find a leader within your own existing parties. In America, we have many of the same problems that you have. However, the worst of your problems (the Muslims) is not nearly the problem for us that it is for you.Muslims only make up .6 percent of our total population.That is not to say they are not a threat. It doesn't take many Muslims to detonate a bomb, does it?Anyway, we have, within our existing parties, some politicians who actually understand the problems that exist. The best of these is John Bolton. John Bolton may very well end up being President. Probably not in 2008. But, in the future, when we have realized the true depth of this war, then we will look to a man like him.If John Bolton were to be elected, I think he might have to be elected from the platform of a new political party. Lincoln and his buddies had to form the Republican Party before the slavery situation could be dealt with. I believe, similarly, we will have to form new parties, in the Western world, in order to deal with the problem with Islamofascism.Are you sure you do not have any men like John Bolton in your existing parties?
