  • Truth and Consequences: Will we still have security after Senator Leahy’s commission stunt?

    The Judiciary Committee chairman has not had much to say about the Obama administration’s decision to release Binyam Mohammed, the al-Qaeda jihadist who was planning to carry out mass-murder attacks in American cities, who is now free and clear to live and plot in Londonistan. Leahy did, however, make time last week to conduct a hearing on his banana-republic scheme for a “non-partisan” — also non-elected, non-accountable — sideshow that would conduct an inquisition into the Bush administration’s counterterrorism policies. His model, he has explained, is South Africa’s “truth and reconciliation commission.” Let’s roll that around the brain, shall we?...

    HOUSTON -- Grammy-winning Tejano singer Emilio Navaira's survival was in doubt Monday after the tour bus that police said he was not licensed to drive crashed on a freeway, leaving him with serious head injuries."There is a chance he may not make it," said Dr. Alex Valadka, director of neurotrauma services at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center and vice chair of neurosciences at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston."Everyone needs to understand that right up front. That's how bad it is."Navaira, 45, known to his fans simply as Emilio, was removed from the bus that wrecked before dawn...

    IN THE CURRENT by GOLDA SHIRA By . (06/15/2007) President George Bush is my hero. No, this is not another Bush joke. The truth is that I have come to see him as a man of rare integrity. What a guy! No, I wouldn't have said those things seven years ago. I certainly wasn't keen on the mechanics of his election. And I wasn't voting for a guy who started out not too interested in international involvements, certainly not in the Middle East. Yet he has risen to the challenges presented during his presidency with courage and enormous self-sacrifice. So...

    One of the biggest advantages Senator Clinton enjoys as she launches her presidential bid is the vast web of politically active Democrats who worked in the federal government under her husband, President Clinton. But not everyone who served during the Clinton years is promoting a reprise. A handful of top Clinton administration officials and a smattering of lower-ranking ones have taken up with Mrs. Clinton's rivals for the Democratic nomination. Most cite pre-existing personal or professional loyalties. In some instances, however, the Democratic activists seem to have concluded that they will have more of an impact in the leaner ranks...

    I occasionally wander over to the left side of the blogoshere to have a look-see. Not too many surprises. Hate,rage,disgust,arrogance, and mockery disguised as cynicism and reality-based thinking. It makes you wonder: if President Bush were as evil as they imagine, and were as hell-bent on installing a theocratic dictatorship as they claim, then why haven't they taken up armed revolt against this unjust government? One reason may be that the members of their group who would have had the courage to take such a stand are no longer voting for Democrats. And, until the Democrats are willing to seriously...

    IN the 1960s, my sister was part of the Free Speech Movement at Berkeley. She was arrested in a civil rights sit-in. Naturally, she was a lifelong Democrat. Today, she is a “9-11 Republican.” She is not alone. My sister is no less committed to civil rights than before. But she believes that not being murdered by Islamist terrorists is also an important civil right. She is not sure that the Democratic Party completely agrees with her. For 9-11 Republicans, this is the most significant political issue. The GOP “gets it,” while the Democratic Party doesn't. Many recent former Democrats...

    Bush's Democrats Some Democratic members of Congress who have been trashing President Bush, including several African Americans, arrived at the House up to 45 minutes ahead of President Bush's State of the Union address in order to get aisle seats for his speech. When Bush walked in shortly after 9 p.m., the Democrats on the aisle were as eager as the Republicans opposite them to shake hands with the president. African-American Democrats Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick of Michigan and Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas engaged in hugs and kisses with Bush. He shared a joke that caused Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones,...

    One of President Bush's most reliable allies in defending the war in Iraq and the global war on terrorism is writer/pundit Christopher Hitchens. The Vanity Fair columnist and former socialist would almost be a card-carrying libertarian if it weren't for his hawkish, interventionist foreign policy. I talked to him by telephone from his home in Washington, where he's starting work on his next book, "God Is Not Great."

    Capitol Hill (CNSNews.com) - Stage and screen actor Ron Silver, in Washington for President Bush's State of the Union address Wednesday night, credited left-wing celebrities -- particularly filmmaker Michael Moore -- with helping to re-elect George W. Bush. "The celebrity backlash helped," Silver said. "Michael Moore, I think, was a big factor --a really big factor," Silver told Cybercast News Service in the U.S. Capitol's Statuary Hall, following Bush's speech. Silver's acting credits include the television series "The West Wing," and "Chicago Hope" as well as the movie "Reversal of Fortune." He also is a co-founder of the Creative Coalition,...

The Miami Herald review goes against Internet-fed rumors questioning whether there was a conspiracy against Sen. John Kerry in those counties. Kerry won in much of South Florida, where voters vote on touch-screen machines that can't be checked.

Some wondered whether Florida's tally was corrupt, with one Internet site writing: "George W. Bush's vote tallies, especially in the key state of Florida, are so statistically stunning that they border on the unbelievable." Last week, The Miami Herald went to see for itself whether Bush's steamroll through North Florida was legitimate. Picking three counties that fit the conspiracy theory profile - staunchly...

    On Nov. 2, I did something I’ve never done before and may never do again — I voted a straight Republican ticket. I wasn’t the only Galveston County voter to do so. In fact, for the first time in history, more Republicans voted a straight ticket than Democrats, nearly 30,000 of them. So, President Bush carried Galveston County by a wide margin. In two out of three countywide races, Republicans won. In the sheriff’s race, the popular incumbent Democrat Gean Leonard won a surprisingly close victory over a Republican who wasn’t widely known in the county. In the past, I’ve...

But strikingly, a fairly significant number of Jews switching from Gore in 2000 to Bush, somewhere in the order of 12-13%," said David Harris, AJC's executive director, who examined data, which he stressed was not scientific.

    The election season is always hellish for people who fancy that they live by political principles, because at such a time "politics" becomes, even more than usually, a matter of show business and superficial calculation. Ever since 1980, when I bet the liberals of New York that Reagan would win easily (and didn't have to buy my own lunch for months afterward), I have sympathized with the "prisoners' dilemma" that faces liberals and leftists every four years. The shady term "lesser evil" was evolved to deal with this very trap. Should you endorse a Democrat in whom you don't really...

    Former Democratic New York Mayor Ed Koch advocated the re-election of current President George W. Bush in a speech at Steinhardt Hall yesterday. "I am a Democrat ... and don't agree with George W. Bush on a single domestic issue ... but I'm voting for Bush because all issues are trumped by the single issue of international terrorism," Koch said. Labeling the current war a "war of civilizations," Koch supported Bush's aggressive policy and steadfast demeanor in dealing with the ramifications of a post-Sept. 11 world. Americans "are in the middle of a war ... [and] John Kerry is not,...

    Miller said that he's never voted for a Republican for president. Starting with Adlai Stevenson in 1952 through Al Gore in 2000, his votes in presidential elections went to Democrats. That string will change next month. He likened the Kerry-Edwards campaign to "Dorothy skipping down the Yellow Brick Road to the far side of the moon." "I have never seen a presidential candidate so out of touch with the average American than John Kerry," he said. Miller chided his party for putting partisanship before people in his first book, "A National Party No More: The Conscience of a Conservative Democrat."...

    "But as I sat down and read everything I could get my hands on about and by Bush and Kerry in the last few days, I tripped over something that made up my mind for me. It was from Kerry's interview in "Rolling Stone," and in it he says, as a part of a longer answer regarding Iraq and Vietnam: "...that's what I'm trying to offer America right now -- a realistic way to get our troops home, with honor, by achieving our goals but by sharing the burden and risk." "Kerry's goals, as he consistently expresses them, are defensive...

    YOUNGSTOWN, OH – Democrat Youngstown Mayor George McKelvey today issued the following statement regarding John Kerry's hunt earlier this morning in Youngstown, Ohio: “The new camouflage jacket that supposed ‘avid’ hunter John Kerry wore today can’t hide him from a voting record that has earned him the distinction of being named the most liberal member of the United States Senate. “John Kerry can’t apply camouflage to his record, and it’s a record that is out of touch with all the mainstream values and priorities of the people of Ohio. “As a Democrat who supports President Bush, I’m confident that the...

    Sarah Baxter is a life-long Labour voter in Britain and a registered Democrat in the United States. So how come she wants George W Bush to remain president? It was the kind of glittering occasion at which John Kerry and his wife would feel at home. There were millionaires in tuxedos with their Botoxed and bejewelled wives, graceful daughters with flawless skin in evening gowns, members of the Kennedy and Hearst dynasties and, because this is New York high society, there were artists surrounded by their patrons and benefactors. So here I am in deep Kerry territory, surrounded by designer...

    I'M THE Democratic mayor of Youngstown, a city that traditionally gives 60 to 75 percent of its vote to the Democratic presidential candidate. Growing up with the legacies of FDR, Harry Truman, and JFK formed my core Democratic values. They had the courage of their convictions, their word was their bond, and the entire world knew it. They made me proud to be a Democrat. Fast forward to 2004. John Kerry stands on the stage of Radio City Music Hall, acknowledges a group of Hollywood leftists and elitists, and characterizes them as representing the heart and soul of America. Senator...
