    (Vancouver, WA) Seven months after Rep. Brian Baird reported a telephoned death threat to the U.S. Capitol Police in Washington, D.C., more details have trickled out. It turns out it was an unidentified man in Kansas who left a message on Baird’s Washington, D.C., office phone last August advising him to “keep a close eye out for those Ryder rental trucks” after Baird made an ill-advised televised comment during the summer’s heated debate about health care reform. The Capitol Police turned the matter over to the FBI, which classified it as a “terrorist threat.” The FBI tracked down the caller...

    Another Washington State Democrat is throwing in the towel! This is not confirmed yet, but I just received an e-mail from a very reliable local source, who says Washington State Representative Deb Wallace is not only abandoning her campaign for Brian Baird’s US House seat here in the 3rd CD, she is not running for reelection to her State House seat in Olympia, either. Baird (D. Vancouver) announced he was not seeking another term just last month. Wallace was the only local Democrat running for Baird’s seat with any real legs in my view, and if she is backing out...

    Keith Ellison, widely hailed as America's first Muslim congressman, could more accurately be described as CAIR and Hamas' man in Congress. Congressman Ellison has been a regular presence at CAIR fundraisers and at pro-Hamas rallies in the United States. As a former member of Farrakhan's Nation of Islam , Ellison has enough anti-semitic and Islamist credentials to satisfy anyone, and had expressed openly anti-semitic beliefs in the past. Since Ellison got his start with CAIR , his attempt to provide support for Hamas is completely unsurprising. Both Hamas and CAIR are projects of the Muslim Brotherhood, which also helped...

    Pelosi surprised by Baird's decision to retireBy Charles Pope, The Oregonian December 16, 2009, 3:42PM WASHINGTON -- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday she was surprised by Rep. Brian Baird's decision to retire but remains confident Democrats will maintain control of the House after the 2010 elections. "Brian Baird, he didn't give me 72 hours notice,'' Pelosi joked, referring to Baird's unsuccessful – and persistent -- efforts to provide lawmakers at least 72 hours to review and understand legislation before voting. Like others who follow politics in the Northwest and beyond, Pelosi said she was surprised by Baird's announcement. "He...

    George W. Bush carried the current 3rd district 48%-46% in 2000 and 50%-48% in 2004; Barack Obama carried it 53%-45% in 2008. In other words, it voted pretty much like the nation as a whole. Baird would certainly have been the favorite to hold the district in 2010, but might have faced a tougher contest than he has since 1998 and 2000. He turns 54 in 2010, not old enough (one would think) to contemplate retirement but young enough to cash in on 12 years of incumbency. In any case, this national-average district must now be considered very much up...

David Hedrick had the fortitude to bluntly call Representative Brian Baird to account on several issues. Health care, the teaching of our children, and the upholding of one’s oath to the Nation, were among the issues this brave Marine took Baird to task for.

Let me back up a little: -- Baird opted not to hold public town hall meetings on health care. He made the decision because he was concerned about what he was seeing out there at other town hall meetings. Safety issues. -- Baird said part of his decision was based on some death threats he had received. -- He called some of the tactics he had seen...

    It seems that congress might have a new budding liar, if not a crook. (In other news, water is wet.) Brian Baird, a democrat representative from Vancouver, Washington, has claimed that he received a death threat because of his support of HR 3200. This threat, he claims, was made by some crazy right-winger in a desperate attempt to stifle the truth about the goodness and graciousness of HR 3200. This, he has implied, is the right’s desperation as they ratchet up the rancor - code words for, “the right are a bunch of dangerous neanderthals.” All of these bigoted notions...

    Congressman Brian Baird accepted an invitation to a living-room chat with a local Republican leader who volunteered Friday to be his bodyguard, and agreed to a national radio appearance with a conservative talk-show host. Baird was scolded for his choice of words in an ongoing political storm, and was both supported and criticized for holding a "telephone town hall" instead of an actual town hall meeting. And then there was the fax that the Vancouver Democrat characterized as a death threat. Friday added several new chapters to a story that started this week when Baird said he wasn't going to...

Those were among Baird's responses and introductory comments during a...

Baird said he's using the new system because he fears his political opponents may be planning "an ambush" to disrupt his meetings, using methods Baird compared to Nazism. "What we're seeing right now is close to Brown Shirt tactics," Baird, D-Vancouver, said in a phone interview. "I mean that very seriously."

Brian Baird, criticized after breaking ranks with his Democratic colleagues last summer over the war, says his most recent trip to Iraq confirms his view that the Bush administration's military surge is working. He thinks drawing down U.S. troops too rapidly would be "a profound mistake." Baird, a Vancouver Democrat, traveled to Iraq with four other members of Congress from Nov. 30 to Dec. 4. It was his third trip to Iraq in the past seven months. Immediately after his return, he flew home to survey the damage to his district from last week's...

I caught the spectacle - which came just short of a public flogging - on television. The crowd gathered at Fort Vancouver High School didn't want so much to hear why the charismatic Democrat is supporting continued troop strength in Iraq, but to tell him he is wrong. Unelectable wrong. Dead-in-the-political-waters wrong. Go-find-new-sign-wavers wrong. And Baird, though trying to be gracious, clearly got a bit peeved. I don't blame him. Most questions from the audience started...

The administration faces a September deadline for delivering a report on Iraq security to Congress....

    On May 6th, 2004, Judge W. Douglas Baird ruled Terri’s Law is unconstitutional. Baird wrote in his decision that Terri’s Law “is unconstitutional on its face because it is an unconstitutional delegation of legislative power to the Governor and because it unjustifiably authorizes the Governor to summarily deprive Florida citizens of their constitutional right to privacy. In both instances, these are pure question of law that require no evidentiary support under any conceivable circumstance.” The key word in Baird’s above assertion is “unjustifiably”. Fact is, every member of Florida’s Legislature upon taking their office, took an oath of office and...

Jeb Bush shouldn't be allowed to gather new evidence in the case because the judge has all the information he needs to decide if the law keeping Terri Schiavo alive is unconstitutional. The governor's attorney countered that questioning is needed because lawmakers were uncomfortable with Michael Schiavo's motives in wanting to withdraw food and hydration from his wife.

Jeb Bush to save the life of Terri Schiavo last October. Circuit Court Judge Douglas W.

Baird's announcement opens the door for the removal of the 40-year old brain-damaged woman's source of...

At issue is whether the Legislature violated the Florida Constitution by passing a new law that allowed Gov. Jeb Bush to force doctors to reinsert Schiavo's feeding tube Oct. 21. On Wednesday, attorneys...
