    Washington — U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder refused to answer pointed questions from Congressman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., about allegations the Obama Administration offered U.S. Rep. Joe Sestak, D-Pa., a high-ranking position in return for dropping out of the primary election against incumbent Sen. Arlen Specter. Mr. Issa wants the Justice Department to investigate the allegations which, if confirmed, could amount to three felony offenses for bribery and corruption.  On Thursday, with Mr. Holder testifying before the House Judiciary Committee, Mr. Issa asked why a special prosecutor has not been assigned to investigate the case. “The appointment of a special prosecutor...

    The current projectile-sweat-the-Republic-is-in-danger-of-collapse issue is whether the President will respond to subpoenas issued by the House and Senate Judiciary committees which would require (at a minimum) Karl Rove and former White House Counsel Harriet Miers to testify under oath about the firing of those eight previously unknown US Attorneys. SIDEBAR Let's be clear about this. The Democrats will spend some portion of their day, every day until 12:01 pm on January 20, 2009 trying to get Karl Rove to testify under oath about something so they can ask him about everything. As far as the Democrats are concerned, Karl Rove...

    I suppose certain puffed-up congressmen are feeling their oats since the election, but that’s no excuse for their unauthorized trips overseas to meet with leaders of foreign nations. This destructive practice must be stopped. Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson traveled to Syria and met with its president, Bashar Assad, without the authority and contrary to the wishes of the Bush administration, including the State Department. The well-known policy of the Bush administration is that the United States has limited diplomatic ties with the Syrian government because of its support for terrorist organizations Hezbollah and Hamas, its support of terrorism and ethnic...

    House Speaker-to-be Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) has pledged to take up a lobbying reform proposal that would impose new regulations on speech by grassroots organizations, while providing a loophole in the rules for large corporations and labor unions. The legislation would make changes to the legal definition of “grassroots lobbying” and require any organization that encourages 500 or more members of the general public to contact their elected representatives to file a report with detailed information about their organization to the government on a quarterly basis. The report would include identifying the organization’s expenditures, the issues focused on and the members...

    The White House says it is inappropriate for members of Congress to meet privately with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. VOA White House correspondent Scott Stearns reports, one senator visited Damascus earlier this week, and several others are planning visits to the Syrian capital. White House spokesman Tony Snow criticized Florida Senator Bill Nelson for meeting with President Assad Wednesday, saying it is neither helpful nor appropriate. "The point is that, even lending a further specter of legitimacy to that government undermines the cause of democracy in the region," said Mr. Snow. "The Syrians have been adventurous and meddlesome in Iraq,...

Now West Point has opened its first space dedicated to Muslims, a worship hall complete with a pulpit facing Mecca. The space officially opened Thursday. "I knew the Army had a policy of religious tolerance, but I didn't know it was to this extent," said first-year Cadet Ahmed Moomin, 20, from the Maldives. Until now, Friday prayers were held in an increasingly crowded first-floor office, said Imam Asadullah, the academy's Muslim cleric. The number of Muslim cadets jumped by...

    What drama! ABC has a five-hour miniseries coming up titled "The Path to 9/11." The first episode airs this coming Sunday night at 8:00 p.m. Eastern. This docu-drama is causing quite a stir in Washington ... and especially in the Clinton camp. The problem, you see, is that in this movie the Clinton Administration is portrayed as treating Islamic terrorism as nothing more than a law enforcement problem. There is one scene in the move where Intelligence officials are discussing an attempt to kill or capture Osama bin Laden. The Clinton administration is refusing to authorize the action. Permission denied....

    I am not sure if the general public truly understands the enormity of the events surrounding the upcoming docu-drama "Pathway to 9-11". The Democratic party reaction reeks of censorship, it reeks of absolute government control of the media, ala the Soviet Union or Red China. During the reign of the Soviet Union, how many people can remember when the news reported how television stations and networks were shut down only because someone dare criticize the government? Even recently, under Putin, stations and channels have been taken off the air for only one reason: they criticized the government or aired something...

    The Bush administration, seeking to limit leaks of classified information, has launched initiatives targeting journalists and their possible government sources. The efforts include several FBI probes, a polygraph investigation inside the CIA and a warning from the Justice Department that reporters could be prosecuted under espionage laws. In recent weeks, dozens of employees at the CIA, the National Security Agency and other intelligence agencies have been interviewed by agents from the FBI's Washington field office, who are investigating possible leaks that led to reports about secret CIA prisons and the NSA's warrantless domestic surveillance program, according to law enforcement and...

    WASHINGTON - The Justice Department has opened another investigation into leaks of classified information, this time to determine who divulged the existence of President Bush's secret domestic spying program. The inquiry focuses on disclosures to The New York Times about warrantless surveillance conducted by the National Security Agency since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, officials said. The newspaper recently revealed the existence of the program in a front-page story that also acknowledged that the news had been withheld from publication for a year, partly at the request of the administration and partly because the newspaper wanted more time to confirm...

    Thanks to a newspaper "scoop" last week, America is a safer place today for terrorists. Last Thursday the New York Times in a 3,600-word article exposed a top-secret program President Bush ordered shortly after the Sept. 11 attacks. The National Security Agency captures and turns over to counter-terrorist analysts phone calls and e-mails of countless U.S. and foreign citizens. The terrorist agents, who read the newspapers, will now change their ways and blind our intelligence agents. The damage to American safety ranks with the worst intelligence breaches of all time. "It is a shameful act for someone to disclose this...

    Ever since 9/11, the media and congressional critics have waged a relentless battle against President Bush for not doing enough to prevent the terrorist attacks. Now these same critics have begun a campaign against the Bush administration for doing too much to prevent the next attack. The latest example is the New York Times revelation that after 9/11, Mr. Bush authorized the National Security Agency (NSA) to intercept communications with an overseas nexus to uncover information about possible al Qaeda attacks. The fact that Mr. Bush bypassed the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), which lays out procedures for intercepting communications...

As reported by NewsBusters on Monday, an intricate international communications espionage network, codenamed Echelon, has been in existence for many years. Yet, a LexisNexis search of the word “Echelon” and the name “James Risen” produced only one result.

    A cynic might well be forgiven the indelicate observation that the two most salient, pervasive and persistent characteristics of American politics are hypocrisy and irony. Both, as usual, are prominently on display in the presidential campaign of 2004. Perhaps the most savory of all examples is the “controversy” over “outsourcing” broached in a deliciously “outraged” denunciation by the single wealthiest member of the United States Senate, plutocrat John Kerry, aristocratic “defender of the common man,” of “Benedict Arnold CEOs” who callously export jobs abroad while earning “obscene” salaries substantially less than the Senator’s annual dividend checks—the facts be damned. [For...

    John Forbes Kerry has harsh words for CEOs who ship jobs overseas. He calls them "Benedict Arnolds." It's hard to take such corporate-bashing seriously from a presidential candidate whose financial disclosure statement runs more than 460 pages long, and includes investments in several multinationals, such as GE, which have exported jobs overseas.But it's even harder to take seriously Ralph Nader, the presidential foe on Kerry's left (good thing Nader's reed thin, because there's not much room left over there) and the anti-corporate gadfly from whom Kerry coopted the idea. Nader questioned the patriotism of companies that send jobs offshore long...

    <p>To hear John Kerry tell it to the Wall Street Journal, his comment about "Benedict Arnold CEOs" who betrayed America by "shipping jobs overseas" was all just a big mistake. Not his, of course, but that of some overzealous speechwriter. In fact, the entire incident represents yet another example of Mr. Kerry's propensity to prevaricate.</p>

    For education and discussion only. Not for commercial use. Sen. John Kerry's ongoing denunciations of outsourcing by the "Benedict Arnold corporations" as a plot by George W. Bush and his administration is demagoguery. The truth is that the strongest proponents of transferring American industrial jobs abroad have included Democratic President Jimmy Carter and such left-wing leaders as Reps. John Conyers (D-Mich.) and Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.), all three of whom are supporting Kerry for president. Until now, Kerry has appeared to support the Carter-Conyers-Rangel policies for encouraging industrial outsourcing. Here's how it all began. Unlike President Carter, President Dwight Eisenhower was...

Outsourcing is particularly painful at this moment because we haven’t been creating jobs, and we haven’t been creating jobs to some measure because of the overhang of the 1990s,...

    Out: Kerry Panic; In: Iraq PanicPlus--"I meant 'Benedict Arnold' in a good way!"By Mickey KausUpdated Tuesday, May 4, 2004, at 2:59 AM PT Benedict Arnold is Flip-flopping in his Grave! In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, John Kerry has this to say about his campaign attacks on "Benedict Arnold companies": But the Benedict Arnold line applied, you know, I called a couple of times to overzealous speechwriters and said "look that's not what I'm saying."Benedict Arnold does not refer to somebody who in the normal course of business is going to go overseas and take jobs overseas. That happens. I support...

    IF DEMOCRATS believe anything these days, it is that it is wrong to question anyone’s patriotism. For John Kerry, this is a matter of sacred conviction. He calls the defeat in 2002 of former Georgia Sen. Max Cleland “the most craven moment I have ever seen in American politics,” because “the Republican Party challenged this man’s patriotism.” He routinely vows to fight back with a fearsome “message for those who try to challenge the Democrats and say to them ‘you’re unpatriotic.’” In Kerry’s book, only the desperate hurl such charges: “It’s curious to me how angry they get and how...
