Republicans Abroad Radio

Expats living abroad have usually relied on the regular media to provide them with information of what happens back home. This "regular" media is usually slanted, and has failed to report the news in an unbiased and neutral way. Fortunately, the Internet is the new competition. As Rush Limbaugh says, "there is competition from other venues, such as Internet and satellite broadcasting. It is not an exaggeration to say that today, more than ever, anyone with a microphone and a computer can broadcast their views."

Check out Republicans Abroad Radio for their weekly broadcasts with interesting guests who provide the latest information regarding what's going on in the US.

He threatened "to bring a force of 10,000 Muslims to lay siege to the House of Lords" if it went ahead with an event at which the Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders would have introduced a screening of his controversial film "Fitna."

Britain's Home Secretary, Jacqui Smith, reacted to this by declaring Wilders persona non grata and having him arrested and returned to the Netherlands.

Smith is best known for an inspired change of terminology: last year she announced that henceforth Muslim terrorism (an unhelpful phrase) would be reclassified as "anti-Islamic activity." Seriously. The logic being that Muslims blowing stuff up tends not to do much for Islam's reputation – i.e., it's an "anti-Islamic activity" in the same sense that Pearl Harbor was an anti-Japanese activity.
