"Having sharpened their knives on Charles Pickering and D. Brooks Smith, Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee turn [today] to Priscilla Owen, President Bush's nominee for the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. The accomplished judge had better wear her battle armor," the Wall Street Journal says.

Get ready to lose another of Bush's appointees, folks.
..........couldn't find anything there in his Biography. I guess FAITH is not an important guiding principle in his life.
She has voted leftist (pro-abortion) Democrat her entire life and will continue to do so. Because the Democrats are "for the little guy" (her words). She was a teenager in the Depression, so I guess that explains some of it. And in her eyes "they're [politicians] all alike".
Moral relativism works for Democrats, because moral relativism always works in favor of the immoral.
Twelfth on the list of "Herod's Heroes" is the Democratic senator from Vermont Patrick Leahy. As an ally of satan through his uncompromising pro-abortion stance, he is enabling lucifer to "destroy both soul and body in hell." Through his actions he has become an enemy of God and the Roman Catholic Church. This is not a political statement on Leahy, but rather a moral statement; one he and his bishops should take very, very seriously.
Senator Leahy, born in Montpelier, Vermont in 1940, has a long history of Catholic education from his early years to St. Michael's College in Colchester, Vermont and then receiving his law degree from the Jesuit Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. Evidently his classmate Bill Clinton's ideology influenced him more than the Catholic Doctrine he should be upholding.
He is now in his fifth term as Vermont's Senator and we call on him to come to his senses. Here is a man, who has worked passionately to fight breast cancer and introduce The Innocence Protection Act of 2001. With that kind of agenda, you would think he would be solidly on the side of Pro Life. But, noooo, he would rather subscribe to his party's culture of death. Don't you see a paradox in his causes? We would hope he will see the obvious link to increased breast cancer and abortion. We would hope he cares just as much for the innocent child in the womb as he does about the hardened criminal.
As one of the senior members of the Senate and his party, Leahy could do so much good, yet there have been no fruits because, through his action and record, he has steadily shown a disdain for the teachings of the Catholic Church and her mandate of upholding life in all stages. Though he voted to ban partial-birth abortion, he has still shown an alarming consistency in voting for and legislating pro-abortion measures that empower the culture of death. He will have to answer to God for these transgressions against Christ's innocent ones as Jesus says in today's Gospel in Matthew 25: 45, "'Amen I say to you, as long as you did not do it for one of these least ones, you did not do it for Me.' And these will go into everlasting punishment, but the just into everlasting life."
This group is trying to get Leahy excommunicated...they have an on-line petition.
NOW Opposes Nomination of Priscilla Owen To Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals
July 19, 2002
"Texas Supreme Court Justice Priscilla Owen's penchant for judicial activism may have earned her Bush's nomination to the Fifth Circuit, but it should not win her a seat on the Court of Appeals," said National Organization for Women (NOW) President Kim Gandy. "NOW and other supporters of a fair court system are calling on the Senate Judiciary Committee to reject Owen's nomination."
"We've seen Judge Owen use the courtroom to further her narrow beliefs and ideals, going so far as to virtually re-write laws rather than fairly interpret them. The last thing the Fifth Circuit needs is more judges who can't leave their political ideologies at the door," Gandy said. "For example, Owen supports 'stricter interpretation' of the Texas law requiring girls younger than 18 to inform their parents before obtaining an abortion. In every case that came before the Texas Supreme Court last spring in which a young woman sought a bypass of the parental notification law, Judge Owen voted against granting the bypass."
"Even White House Counsel and former fellow Texas Supreme Court Justice Alberto Gonzales referred to Owen's extremist position in a reproductive rights case as an 'unconscionable act of judicial activism,'" Gandy said. "Owen has been described as being on the 'far right wing' of the Texas Court, even more to the right than Bush's own appointees to that court when he was governor. A judge whose political zealotry prevents fair application of the law has no place on the federal bench."
"In addition to disdaining women's rights, Owen has demonstrated a commitment to money over morality," Gandy said. "In 1994, Enron endorsed her and contributed $8,600 to her successful Texas Supreme court bid. Two years later, she wrote the majority opinion that reduced Enron's school taxes by $15 million, and according to Texans for Public Justice that court ruled in Enron's favor in five out of six cases. Now a household name for corruption, Enron contributed more money to Owen than any other corporation."
"Women's rights supporters across the country will be contacting the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee via phone, fax and e-mail to demand they reject the Priscilla Owen nomination," Gandy said. "NOW is keeping tabs on how every Senator votes on judicial nominations--and their commitment to women's rights will surely be reflected in women's votes."

Hey Doc, are you FRench?! Yer waaaay too quick to surrender!! LOL!!
Do you really think Pro-Abortionists have a winning issue Bashing a State Parental Notification Law/Ruling?! Nawwww...it's time fer the Right to put our fists down the throats of these anti-American Leftist pantywaists!!!
GRASS-ROOT PITCHFORKERS...UNITE!! NO RETREAT!! NO SURRENDER!!!
Hahahahahaha...........No! Just chronically pessimistic towards this aspect of the Republican agenda.
The quesion I have is where is the pre-Hearing PR by the Bush administration?
They just can't keep sending people up there to get slaughtered by this bunch of bolcheviks without some planning and forethought.
Don't go cynical all me now...this is the first time in over 50 years the GOP has controlled the Executive Branch and the House of Representatives simultaneously going into a mid-term election!! If we can get the House to set a basic, Conservative Agenda of what will occur were the GOP to Retake the Senate and Retain the House this November, and then defend that Agenda vigorously, we can put a whuppin' on the RATS this Fall!!
Lib'ralism's DEAD!! Now it's time to start riddin' the Guv'ment of Lib'rals!!
"The question I have is where is the pre-Hearing PR by the Bush administration?"
Good point...I saw one or two articles the last few days, but obviously we cannot match the Networks' immediate volume on the issue. Still, when you get down to it, the Left is hinging its argument being virulently anti-Parental Notification!! It behooves the Right to take a stand on this issue, and I believe they will.
"They just can't keep sending people up there to get slaughtered by this bunch of bolsheviks without some planning and forethought."
Agreed...where is the next generation of Lee Atwaters when we need them?!
You got that right. Hypocrisy? Who, little 'ol us in the New York Times or AP? P'shaw!
Mount up and ride toward the sound of the guns!
In a nutshell, you've nailed it, my FRiend...Left's overplayin' its hand...MUD
Yep...Grassroots Activism Shall Win--or lose--This November's Election!! That's why Dubyuh and the GOP need to give us RadicalRightWingWhackos sumthin' to vote FER!!
I say a "Contract With America II" would be Right on time just about now...MUD
Nothing personal against Dubyuh, but that sort of response would be spineless in an election year!! Dubyuh's Right on this issue and ought to be willing to bloody his knuckles a tad...what good's being Right if you ain't willing to defend yer position?
Obviously, that's something I must remedy over time...)8^D.
"It's a shot across the bow that he's going to get what he wants."
Winning the Hearts and Minds of the American Sheeple will require that we take strong stands and vigorously and publicly defend those stands so that even the Vast, LeftWing Medyuh Whore'd's Network pee-ons can't spin the Truth!! A recess appointment would avoid a debate I believe this Nation needs to undergo, my FRiend.
Are you sure you aren't a dem?
I have two words for you Tom Daschle
Yep...Dubyuh and the GOP's unrestrained spending (Education Bill, Farm Bill, etc.) needs to be curtailed or winning elections will become a exercise in futility. The GOP needs to get strongly behind Education Vouchers, Medical Savings Accounts, Social Security Personal Savings Accounts, and any other domestic legislation that disempowers the Federal Leviathan while transferring $$--and accountability--to States, Localities, and Individuals.
"Are you sure you aren't a dem?"
Dem's fightin' words, OldFriend.
"I have two words for you Tom Daschle."
Sure, there are many who are content with voting AGAINST the RATS, but I believe we need to do something with the Power the GOP gains this November, and declaring a RightWing Agenda will give us the mandate to do just that!!
free the southland,sw
GO ROGER GO!!
That was EXACTLY the name I couldn't think of...you are 100%Right, Chaffee's the Penultimate RINO...MUD
LOL...why can't Pennsylvanians rid themselves of this shiftless character?! Then again, Virginia's got RINO Gentleman Jawn Wahnah, so who am I to talk?!
