    Former President George W. Bush today cheered on the “progress” in pushing comprehensive immigration reform through Congress. “The legislative process can be ugly,” Bush said with a chuckle in an interview aired today on ABC’s “This Week.” “But it looks like they're making some progress.”

    A group of Republican leaders including the vice-chair of the Republican National Committee say they will try in January to pass a resolution accusing President George Bush and congressional Republican leaders of embracing "socialist" policies. Pretty blunt. (having some trouble accessing the website since it was put up on Drudge Report)

    Both presidential candidates took a few days to get their bearings and talking points in order after the beginning of the wild week on Wall Street. McCain McCain's quick comment: Fire Chris Cox, Chairman of the SEC. That effort to find a convenient scapegoat misses the mark and is also unfair. Cox has responded with a ten-point rebuttal pinpointing specific SEC actions — including strengthened investor protections, targeting fraud, emergency orders against naked short-selling involving Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac, "sweeping" and "landmark" enforcement actions, etc. It is understandable that McCain wants to distance himself from President Bush. That does...

    Anti-Bush Richard Immerman, the assistant deputy director of national intelligence for analytical integrity, has written a journal article harshly critical of President Bush and his administration for what he charges is their role in the "politicization" of intelligence. The article echoes liberal academic criticism of the president and his advisers, but with one significant difference: Mr. Immerman is now the top U.S. intelligence official in charge of checking politicization within 16 U.S. intelligence agencies. The appointment of Mr. Immerman as the analysis' "ombudsman" is raising questions among intelligence analysts about whether the office of Director of National Intelligence Michael McConnell...

    One of the things that surprises me so far in the race for the White House is that none of the Republicans is positioning himself clearly as the anti-Bush. I think there is a yearning for such a candidate among the Republican electorate. Here's some evidence. For some time, Strategic Vision, a polling company, has been asking Republican voters if they see George W. Bush as a conservative in the mode of Ronald Reagan. Not only did very few Republicans view Bush that way when the question was first asked last fall, but the number has fallen to the level...

Tear gas was used to disperse the crowds. Several people were injured, including a number of police officers. The violence came hours after Mr Bush pledged to reform controversial immigration laws, during two-day talks with Mexican President Felipe Calderon.

    Columbus, Ohio (AP) -- Gov. Ted Strickland said he would welcome Iraqi refugees to Ohio, clarifying his comments last week were meant to express frustration with President Bush instead of the people displaced by the war. The Democrat told The Associated Press last week he was not inclined to accommodate any refugees because doing so would help bail out the president. "I am sympathetic to the plight of the innocent Iraqi people who have fled that country," he said. "However, I would not want to ask Ohioans to accept a greater burden than they already have borne for the Bush...

    WASHINGTON - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (news, bio, voting record) contended Friday that President Bush is rushing new troops to Iraq and betting that Congress won't cut off funds once they're in battle. The White House called her assertion "poisonous." In an exchange of harsh rhetoric that underscored the intensity of the political fight, Pelosi, D-Calif., said the war should not be "an obligation of the American people in perpetuity." "The president knows that because the troops are in harm's way, that we won't cut off the resources. That's why he's moving so quickly to put them in harm's way,"...

    To get a feel for the new political atmosphere in the wake of the Democrats' takeover of both houses of Congress, I've been listening to Neil Young's most recent album, Living with War, recently, which was released earlier this year. As you may be aware, especially if you've seen the superb Saturday Night Live parody of it, the album is a collection of retro-1960s-style "protest" songs opposing the Bush administration and the American public's sheeplike acceptance of his many atrocities (ooops—overtaken by events, Dude!). A sympathetic appraisal of one of the most talked-about songs on the album, "Let's Impeach the...

They again called for the closure of the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, where hundreds of foreign terrorism suspects are being held, alleging continued violations of international law on torture and arbitrary...

The 2nd US Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in favour of Zachery Guiles, who through his parents claimed his free speech rights had been violated. School officials made him put duct tape over parts of his T-shirt that showed a Bush image surrounded by cocaine, a razor blade, a straw and a martini. Guiles, who as a seventh grader in 2004...

    Mr. Bush has lied to us about many important issues, he has entered us into a pre-emptive war for the first time in the history of our country, and has no exit strategy. He refuses to accept any responsibility for anything he does, and only appoints friends of his, usually totally unsuited for the job, to high positions in the administration. This alone should be impeachable, and the fact that he believes himself to be above the law has been repeatedly shown as well -- warrantless wiretaps are just one example. Impeach this incompetent man before he does more harm...

    COUNTERTERRORISM has become a source of continuing domestic and international political controversy. Much of it, like the role of the Iraq war in inspiring new terrorists, deserves analysis and debate. Increasingly, however, many of the political issues surrounding counterterrorism are formulaic, knee-jerk, disingenuous and purely partisan. The current debate about United States monitoring of transfers over the Swift international financial system strikes us as a case of over-reaction by both the Bush administration and its critics.

    On his triumphalist tour of India and Pakistan, where he hopes to wave imperiously at people he considers potential subjects, President Bush has an itinerary that's getting curiouser and curiouser. For Bush's March 2 pit stop in New Delhi, the Indian government tried very hard to have him address our parliament. A not inconsequential number of MPs threatened to heckle him, so Plan One was hastily shelved. Plan Two was to have Bush address the masses from the ramparts of the magnificent Red Fort, where the Indian prime minister traditionally delivers his Independence Day address. But the Red Fort, surrounded...

Organizers estimated the crowd at about 4,000 people, many of whom beat makeshift drums, clanged pots and pans, blew whistles or just screamed as Bush's speech was broadcast live -- without sound -- on a giant video screen.

    We all remember high school and how awkward it was to break up with someone you had been seeing. You rarely just told someone it was over. Usually you just drifted away, often hiding from the other person, until they got the message and left you alone. Though, it seemed easier at the time, I’m sure it was actually far more difficult, lasted longer and created far more damage to both parties. And so it is in adult

    There are three reasons why the liberal media and liberals themselves – with the notable exceptions of former senator Zell Miller and current senator Joseph Lieberman – are so consumed by rage that they are literally incapable of acting civil, refraining from vicious invective, veering even a millimeter from their tired talking points, and, most important, putting their country before their own impoverished political agenda and ongoing lust for power. ▪ Liberals have never recovered from the 2000 election of George W. Bush to Al Gore, the successor to their hero, Bill Clinton. As demonstrated by their behavior over the...

    WASHINGTON — The National Security Agency has conducted much broader surveillance of e-mails and phone calls — without court orders — than the Bush administration has acknowledged, The New York Times reported on its Web site. The NSA, with help from American telecommunications companies, obtained access to streams of domestic and international communications, said the Times in the report late Friday, citing unidentified current and former government officials. The story did not name the companies. Since the Times disclosed the domestic spying program last week, President Bush has stressed that his executive order allowing the eavesdropping was limited to people...

    DENVER (AP) - The Air Force Reserve plans to discharge a lieutenant colonel accused of defacing cars that had pro-Bush bumper stickers, the military said Friday. Lt. Col. Alexis Fecteau, a pilot with 500 combat hours in the first Persian Gulf war and the Balkans, is charged with criminal mischief for allegedly using paint stripper to write a profanity about Bush in 18-inch-high letters on cars at Denver International Airport. The cars had bumper stickers supporting President Bush and conservative talk-show host Rush Limbaugh. Jim Miller, a spokesman for the Air Force Reserve Command at Robins Air Force Base, Ga.,...
  • Living Things suffer from lack of life in concert (Bush- bashing band)

    For a band that’s made its reputation with controversial stage shows and radical politics, the Living Things sure seemed tame Monday. A lackluster show at T.T. the Bear’s Place did nothing to bolster the St. Louis-bred rockers’ buzz. It certainly didn’t help that lead singer Lillian Berlin’s vocals were inaudible for the entire set. The problems weren’t solely due to the woeful sound. The Berlin brothers, who are at the core of the Living Things, seemed to be mailing this show in. There was none of the band’s usual antics: no burning of President Bush photos, no dominatrix dancers masquerading...

    Mar del Plata, Argentina, Nov 4 (EFE).- A Nobel laureate and a leftist Bolivian presidential candidate - but not, as had been promised, an Argentine soccer icon - led a march of thousands of anti-U.S. protesters through the streets of this seaside resort city Friday, hours before the inauguration of the Summit of the Americas. Retired athlete Diego Maradona, who had vowed to lead the demonstration to "repudiate" the presence of U.S. President George W. Bush, was in town but did not join the vanguard of the marchers. The explanation provided was that the former captain of the national soccer...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The uniform of a San Francisco police officer caught fire after a Molotov cocktail was hurled near as an anti-Bush protest Wednesday afternoon in downtown San Francisco. A large crowd made its way from the Civic Center down Market Street, blocking traffic during the afternoon commute. "My partner and I are standing here monitoring the crowd and all of a sudden I heard glass breaking, and the bottle apparently hit right there and gasoline spilled and the next thing I know my shoulder is on fire," police officer Gary Constantine told television station KRON. Just when...

    I just received an email at work that says The New York City World Can't Wait Committee (an anti-President Bush group) will stage a protest march on November 2, 2005 starting from Union Square at 2:30 pm. They should arrive in Times Square via Broadway between West 40th St and West 42nd St at approximately 3:30 pm. They are to remain there until about 5:30 pm. Event organizers say they expect up to 5,000 people but also have said that number could be well overestimated.

    A message from Cindy Sheehan Civil disobedience becomes a sacred duty when the State becomes lawless and corrupt. Mahatma Gandhi Unfortunately the 2000th American death in Iraq is tragically coming up too soon. In addition to the wasted young lives in Iraq, 246 of our brave men and women have been killed in Afghanistan. Our troops and the war in Afghanistan get even less attention than Iraq, if possible. I am in Washington, DC now and along with a coalition of peace groups and local activists, we will be holding vigils at the White House for the rest of the...
