  • The Miers Testimony (WSJ/James Taranto)

    Wall Street Journal ^ | 10-13-2005 | James Taranto
    President Bush last week expressed his confidence in the constancy of Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers, saying that "20 years from now she'll be the same person, with the same philosophy," as she is today. White House aides making the case for Miers, meanwhile, have been insisting that she is a reliable conservative. Since she has no judicial record and has had little to say about constitutional law, we can only guess at what her judicial philosophy might be, if indeed she has one at all. But if she is a political conservative, then she has not remained constant over...

    U.S.: Miers Won't Withdraw Top Court Nod Oct 13 3:31 PM US/Eastern Email this story WASHINGTON The White House on Thursday dismissed the possibility that Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers might withdraw if she encounters heavy fire in her Senate confirmation and suggested her nomination was becoming embroiled in "side issues like religion." Asked if there were any circumstances under which she would ask that her name be withdrawn, presidential spokesman Scott McClellan told reporters: "No one that knows her would make such a suggestion." "And no one that knows her record and her qualifications would make such a suggestion,"...

    Oct 12, 2005 — WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President George W. Bush's job approval rating has fallen to a new low of 39 percent in an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released on Wednesday. Bush's approval rating dipped in the poll below a mid-September ranking of 40 percent. The survey also found only 28 percent of respondents believed the country was headed in the right direction, NBC reported. Bush's political challenges have been piling up in recent weeks, from criticism over his handling of Hurricane Katrina, to growing unease over rising gas prices to conservative discord over the nomination of Harriet...

    White House Pours More Gasoline On The Fire It's either feast or famine at the White House with the Harriet Miers nomination. Given the chance to lay out a positive, substantial case for her nomination to the Supreme Court, the Bush administration has remained largely silent. However, given an opportunity to smear the base that elected them, the administration has seized practically every opportunity to do so. The latest comes from the normally classy First Lady, who again promoted Ed Gillespie's barnburner accusation of sexism among the ranks of conservatives: Joining her husband in defense of Supreme Court nominee Harriet...

    WE ARE REPUBLICANS AND CONSERVATIVES who supported the election of George W. Bush in 2000 and 2004. Today, we respectfully urge that the nomination of Harriet Miers to the United States Supreme Court be withdrawn. The next justice of the Supreme Court should be a person of clear, consistent, and unashamed conservative judicial philosophy. The next justice should be a person of unquestioned personal and political independence. The next justice should be someone who has demonstrated a deep engagement in the constitutional issues that regularly come before the Supreme Court — and an appreciation of the originalist perspective on those...

    U.S. immigration officials refused Tuesday to allow Robert Fisk, longtime Middle East correspondent for the London newspaper, The Independent, to board a plane from Toronto to Denver. Fisk was on his way to Santa Fe for a sold-out appearance in the Lannan Foundation’s readings-and-conversations series Wednesday night. According to Christie Mazuera Davis, a Lannan program officer, Fisk was told that his papers were not in order. Davis made last-minute arrangements Wednesday for Amy Goodman, host of Pacifica Radio’s daily news show, Democracy Now!, to interview Fisk via satellite from a television station in Toronto. He appeared on a large screen...

    The outrageous coverage of Hurricane Katrina here in Austria and Germany has included many references to “third world” similarities.  See, for example, Ray’s blog posting concerning Stern magazine’s editorial, “Somalia in America’s South.”   The sneering arrogance, the gruesome Schadenfreude and the completely over the top moralizing reminded me of something that occurred two years ago in the United States, which also elicited “third world” references.  You will recall that on August 14, 2003, an enormous power failure occurred across a huge chunk of the United States and parts of Canada.  On September 5, 2003, I made the following blog entry...

Sheehan, whose son Casey was killed while serving in Iraq last year has been camped outside of Bush’s ranch in Crawford Texas and is vowing to stay there (or follow him to Washington) until he meets with her again. Sheehan wants to ask Bush what noble cause her son died for.

It proceeds with the lead-footed deliberation of its 1950s predecessors to give us an alien invasion that is malevolent, destructive and, from the alien point of view, pointless. They've "been planning this for a million years" and have gone to a lot of trouble to invade Earth for no...

    NARAL, the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League, immediately lashed out at President Bush's nominee for the Supreme Court. "If Roberts is confirmed to a lifetime appointment, there is little doubt that he will work to overturn Roe v. Wade," a NARAL statement said Tuesday night. "As deputy solicitor general under the first President Bush, he argued to the Supreme Court that 'Roe was wrongly decided and should be overruled,' " NARAL also claimed. Abortion will likely be the most contentious issue surrounding Judge Roberts and his nomination. When Bush nominated Roberts to the D.C. Court of Appeals in...

Like CBS, USA Today used those bogus documents to discredit President Bush's National Guard service. But Paulson managed to exercise a form of damage control because CBS used the documents first and put them on TV. Paulson acted as if the scandal was confined to CBS. Many in the...

The American people have lost trust in Bush's trust and integrity "because his administration is playing politics with our national security," Dean said in a press release. "The president must keep his word and put patriotism ahead of partisanship," the former governor of Vermont continued, adding that Bush "must demonstrate that he values protecting CIA operatives fighting on the front lines in the war on terror over...

A Republican National Committee official said the former first lady was "part of today's angry and adrift Democrat Party," while a spokesman for one of her potential 2006 Senate rivals said she was guilty of "insulting the president." "At a time when President Bush and most elected officials are focused on the security of our nation, Mrs. Clinton seems focused on taking partisan jabs and promoting her presidential campaign," added New York's...

    In not untypical fashion, the faithfully left-leaning National Council of Churches (NCC) has issued a poisonous little July 4 greeting to the American people. The statement from the NCC Governing Board is not a celebration of two centuries of American democracy and religious liberty, with gratitude to God. It is instead a screed against the "dishonorable" war in Iraq. "It has become clear that the rationale for invasion was at best a tragic mistake, at worst a clever deception," the statement generously opines. Although comprised of denominations totaling over 40 million mainstream Americans, the NCC has for 40 years been...

    LONDON - Is Coldplay trying to tell us something with that multicolored symbol on the cover of their new album? Cubelike images adorn the packaging, both on the cover and the liner notes, of "X&Y," the British band's much-anticipated third album that was released Tuesday. New Music Express asked a number of top art experts to figure out what the geometric figure on the cover means. They've concluded that it's a 19th-century telegraphic code known as the Baudot Code, or The International Telegraph Code Number One. It was used in teletype machines in the late 1800s.

Sgt. Keith Maupin, 21, has been missing since April 2004. Terrorists in Iraq don't take prisoners. They fight to kill.

Heady with the multimillions pouring into their coffers, with a monopoly on an old media that historically and unfailingly back leftists, and by mistaking their candidate's verbal contortions for substantive policy, they deluded themselves into thinking that the Oval office – as well as the Congress, Senate and a good many governorships – were theirs for the taking.

Democrats refuse to convene a hearing citing their “outrage” over rules changes that could protect Republican Congressman Tom DeLay from investigation.

    Secretary Bolton's intimate understanding of these subjects has caused him to have strong views about them. On occasion, he has expressed those views forcefully and with a measure of rhetorical hyperbole. While some have seized upon his choice of words to disqualify Mr. Bolton, he is indisputably correct in arguing that the UN has rarely been united in the way and for the purposes its founders envisioned. He is also correct in noting that the international community has generally proven most effective in dealing with international crises when led by the United States. It would serve U.S. interests well to...

Post reporter Ceci Connolly found a volunteer at an Indian office who said about Bush, "I don't feel he cares about the American Indian people." This is a classic case of a manufactured story designed to make the president look bad. Connolly, a contributor to Fox News, wrote that "The reaction to Bush's silence was particularly bitter given his high-profile, late-night intervention on behalf of Terri Schiavo, the brain-damaged Florida...

    It was interesting to see the crude oil prices spike again recently. It reminded me of the way in which lemmings run off of cliffs in a rapture that only they could ever understand. Somebody said they thought the prices could reach $110 per barrel and everybody that could jump on that did. I really have to wonder why that is. One would think that after the good ole dotcom con that people would be a little more cautious about such advice. Apparently not. The per barrel price began to drop within a week. That was but a sideshow to...

    Every once in a while I stumble across an opinion article that's so irrational, hate-filled and hypocritical that I feel compelled to comment on it, and New York Times writer Paul Krugman's most recent column is no exception. Titled "What's Going On?", this rambling op-ed is filled with more unprovoked attacks on religious minded people than any other I have had the misfortune to read, and I've read more than I care to remember. http://www.nytimes.com/2005/03/29/opinion/29krugman.html?n=Top%2fOpinion%2fEditorials%20and%20Op%2dEd%2fOp%2dEd%2fColumnists%2fPaul%20Krugman Mr. Krugman begins his piece by attempting to impress upon his readers the dangers of extremism in democratic countries, quickly focussing his attention on the...

    October 2000, Place de la République in Paris: the first of what would become an endless series of ambiguous pro-Palestinian demonstrations welcomed the snake of anti-Semitism into its heart. “Death to the Jews” rang out loud and clear that day as policemen stood by, journalists watched with apparent indifference, and the mass of demonstrators thronged and thrust as demonstrators do. 8 March 2005, Place de la République: a thousand young toughs pierced the heart of a student demonstration and unleashed their rage…not against the police but against the “privileged classes” in their own age group—the protesting lycée students. Operating in...

    Terri Schiavo has been suffering from fatal dehydration for the past week and liberal anti-life crusaders have been relishing in every moment of it. That is, of course, despite last-ditch efforts by President Bush and the Republican party-poopers in Congress to have Terri’s feeding tubes restored. Amid all the fuss, the left’s latest rationalization for starving poor little Terri to death is this: There may have been political motives behind the Republicans’ endeavor to save Terri’s life! President Bush signed a bill on March 21 that would transfer jurisdiction of the Terri Schiavo case to a U.S. district court. This...

    Cynthia McKinney is the six-term representative to Congress from the 4th District of Georgia. She has publicly claimed the Bush administration had prior knowledge of the events leading up to 9-11, saying the administration allowed the events to occur in order to reap huge profits from the invasions in Afghanistan and Iraq. McKinney recently spoke at the sparsely-attended Chicago Anti-War Rally. She said that war is about the only option available when the real motive is to steal natural resources that belong to someone else. McKinney’s rant continued with, “The militarism we see today is nothing new. Bush tells...
  • Free speech is threatened - (Bruce Kesler on McCain-Feingold, implications for internet sites)

    Settled jurisprudence was fairly settled against prior restraints on free speech, except for "shouting fire in a crowded theater" immediate causes of grave harm. Then, along came the McCain-Feingold electoral reforms. McCain-Feingold's supposedly greater interest of restricting the role of big money in campaigns allowed legal and donor restrictions on campaigning. The media is exempt from restrictions. Critics of McCain-Feingold called it an incumbent protection act to reduce the resources of challengers. Realists said McCain-Feingold would result in contributions flowing some way anyway. Opponents of McCain-Feingold warned it restricted free speech, and this could increase. If free speech is surrendered...
  • Republicans Hate You

    Republicans Hate You This diary on DailyKos gives a historic perspective on how the Republican Party, the party of organized money, has hated working people since 1932. Every time they tried to rally support to end Social Security, they were overwhelmed by the popular mandate to keep it. Even today, with the propaganda machine going full-tilt, with computerized, rigged elections making sure that they face less of a threat from the unwashed masses, they still have trouble suckering any more than their cult minority into dismantling a program that keeps millions of people out of poverty. If you ask me,...

    SLAIN AGENT: I DON'T BELIEVE U.S. VERSION-COMMUNIST LEADER (AGI) - Rome, Italy, March 5 - "A day that was supposed to be happy changed into pain and anger. I don't believe a word of the American version. It's clear that they are trying to hide what really happened. The Americans deliberately shot at the Italians. It's huge," said the secretary of the Italian Communist Party, Oliviero Diliberto, commenting on what took place after the liberation of the journalist Giuliana Sgrena. Diliberto said that "the entire centre left (in Italy) should ask the withdrawal of our troops in Parliament. Enough...

    Weekly Standard writer Paul Belien has an article about Beligium's latest anti-American salvo. In the offices of Belgium's Vice Prime Minister, the urinals are decorated with stickers that show an American flag and the head of George W. Bush saying, "Go ahead. Piss on me." While I typically care less about the lives of Belgians than I do about the lives of dust mites, I think this is an obvious slap in the face to both our President and the U.S. as a whole. It's unfortunate that Bush didn't drop his drawers while speaking in Belgium and piss on Prime...

    The anti-Bush Americans, to their eternal disgrace, are somehow paralyzed. They cannot find voice to attack the Iraqi insurgents EVEN THOUGH those insurgents have done history a favor by frankly admitting – no spin – that they hate democracy and think democracy is an "American lie"! Wouldn't you think Sen. Ted Kennedy or some other – or ALL other – Democratic legislators would find a way to take a breath, then a sip of water, and then rail out against the democracy-hating insurgents? There's great hand-wringing over the "impossibility" of bringing democracy to the Middle East. They say there's "no...

    After spending 10 days in London with friends who were outspoken about their disdain for President Bush's policies, Berns Rothchild came home wishing she had a way to show the world she didn't vote for him. "I sort of felt ashamed, and didn't really want to be associated with being an American," said Rothchild, who lives in New York City and voted for John Kerry. Her mother had a suggestion: bracelets, inspired by the Lance Armstrong Foundation's popular "LIVESTRONG" bands, that would signal opposition to Bush. Thousands of miles away, two women in Idaho had the same idea. So did...

    Sir Elton John is famed for his outbursts and diva-ish tantrums. So when he was invited to a presidential reception, hosted by George W Bush, the organisers must have been praying the Rocket Man would not explode. Two weeks ago Sir Elton hit out at the US president, saying he was "the worst thing that has ever happened to America". "I just wanna scream," he said. "It's a nightmare. These idiots think they can get away with anything ... it enrages me that people can just smirk their way through it." But the 57-year-old entertainer managed to keep his cool...

    "Hopefully Bush will get put on trial for war crimes right now. There was a feeling that he was gonna get re-elected anyway, just because Kerry wasn't a very strong opponent. "There's a small percentage of those people in the south that still wave the Confederate flag. I think George Bush is more of a threat to the freedom of America than (ousted Iraqi dictator) SADDAM HUSSEIN ever was."
