    John McCain has just won a narrow but crucial victory in South Carolina's GOP primary, winning 33% of the vote against Huckabee's 30%, and adding further clarity to a race that has been a bit topsy-turvy. Call it "The Comeback RINO, part two" - McCain played his cards well in this evangelical and military-retiree heavy state. Meanwhile, out west, Mitt Romney won a decisive 51% win in the Nevada caucus, taking along with it more delegates than were at stake in South Carolina. So where is the race now? Duncan Hunter has officially dropped out today. Fred Thompson, who staked...

    DETROIT, Mich. -- Romney's scooping up some support in Michigan heading into the home stretch before Tuesday's primary. One intriguing get is the support of Dennis Smith, who heads up the Information Network for Christian Homes, which has supported home-schoolers in the Wolverine State since 1984. Smith yesterday circulated a letter in the state supporting Romney and denouncing many of the Republican candidates, including McCain, and explained in detail the rationale for his thinking. Of McCain, Smith writes: "McCain has been wrong on issues like campaign finance reform and immigration, has an un-presidential nasty temper, and I just don't like...

    A successful private-equity investor before he became governor of Massachusetts, presidential hopeful Mitt Romney claims a special expertise when it comes to economic issues. Business Editor James Pethokoukis chatted with Romney by phone yesterday evening as the candidate campaigned in New Hampshire. Since the Civil War, every presidential election with a recession has meant defeat for the incumbent party. If nominated, can you win in 2008 if we have an economic downturn? I actually think that in a setting like we have--where we face real competitive challenges, particularly from Asia and the weakened dollar and high energy prices--that people are...

    This is a links and activism-central thread to collect the information on the status and effort to defeat the Senate Immigration bill, especially the egregious Z visa amnesty program, in its second attempt at passage. The Vampire Strikes Back The nefarious back-room dealers in the US Senate announced on Thursday night that they were bringing the Senate Immigration bill, killed on a previous cloture vote, back from the dead.

    The current immigration bill being considered by the Senate is so large, complex, and full of legalistic 'gotchas', that there is no telling what unintended consequences will flow from its passage. There is however one thing we can count on: It will not in way solve our immigration woes. To critics of the immigration bill, this bill will irredeemably change America for the worse through the instant create of a new underclass. Whether it is called amnesty or another name, giving blanket legalization and citizenship to the 12 to 20 million illegal immigrants here in this country is the most...

    There are now 58 House Democrats elected in districts that voted for Bush in 2004. There are now only nine House Republicans elected in districts that voted for Kerry in 2004. Note the larger Bush Margins than Kerry margins. Those 58 Dem’s are in more difficult districts than the nine R’s. If in 2008 the R's only won those districts that performed 58% or more for Bush in 2004 they would pick up 18seats.If in 2008, the R's only win those districts that performed 55% or more for Bush in 2004, they would pick up 32 seats.Remember, when Bush won...

    Why People of Conscience Can’t Afford to Facilitate a Leftist Victory For months, we’ve been hearing about the sour mood of U.S, conservatives, with left-leaning activists and liberal commentators savoring (and promoting) the possibility that many of their opponents on the right will express their frustration by abandoning the GOP on November 7th. As Election Day approaches, however, the evidence accumulatesthat dissatisfied and restless Republicans have begun to come home, recoiling at the very real prospect of Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House and second in line to the Presidency. Nevertheless, those of us who travel in conservative circles...

I have been thinking of how to explain things simply to the next generation, ie my kids, and I have just been reading Bastiat's "The Law", a book that has clear and cogent thinking about how Government ought to work. Bastiat explained that Governments overstepped their bounds when they engaged in 'legalized plunder' which all forms of protectionism and socialism fall prey to, and that all errors in Governance flow from violation...

    Purging the Immigration CourtsPresently, the U.S. has a talented and experienced group of immigration judges. With few exceptions, they are dedicated to enforcing the law and perform a difficult job well. Most serve for life.  The Committee’s bill would change all of that. After seven years, all immigration judges—including the current ones—would step down. And it seems (the provision is very poorly drafted) that their replacements would have to be attorneys with at least three years’ experience practicing immigration law. Who meets that requirement? The same immigration attorneys who currently represent aliens in the immigration courts. These attorneys are considered...

    Within 72 hours, America faces the most important election choice in decades. Voters will determine where America and our civilization will go in the global war on terror and in leading the world. This election is about our fundamental national security and our nation's future. Why? WE ARE AT WAR. The central issue for America is terrorism; the central battlefield of terrorism today is in Iraq; and so the future of Iraq and the future of America is intertwined. In this war on terrorism (or more precisely,war on global Jidahist terrorism), we have a choice: 9/10 Senator versus a 9/11...

Since he is presenting to the people some thing other than who he really is, I think a summation, butt SO the challenge: Give me a bullet item, 100 words or less per item, that shows he is not a good man.

    BAGHDAD, Iraq - The U.S. military has arrested a "senior leader" in the network run by Jordanian terror mastermind Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, along with five others during overnight raids in the insurgent stronghold of Fallujah, officials said Saturday. American forces have stepped up operations in Fallujah in a bid to root out al-Zarqawi's terror group, Tawhid and Jihad, which is believed to operate from there. The group has been blamed in numerous suicide bombings and beheadings of foreign hostages, including recent twin blasts inside Baghdad's Green Zone, which houses the U.S and Iraqi leadership. The 1:30 a.m. raid in southern...

    I too have read some so-called inside dope on Bush Jr. that indicates he has some mental disorders. It occurs to me that there may be more than a sliver of truth to this. In fact it is possible Bush 'may' be suffering severe mental stress and unstability. This to the extent that Bush may truly be unfit by reason of deteriation of mental condition, not just his stupid, arrogant and blundering poor handling of every thing he has touched. Next, in steps the Republican big money. They have Dick Cheney to woefully, and with great regret, step up to...

    Jim Krane went after Bush before when he turned a US coup in capturing an Al Qaeda operative into questioning the war in Iraq: "A letter seized from an al-Qaeda courier shows Osama bin Laden has made little headway in recruiting Iraqis for a holy war against America, raising questions about the Bush administration's contention that Iraq is the central front in the war on terror." His bias was enough to make someone take notice. Now that terrorism heated up in Iraq, did Jim Krane write any words that said: "Spate of Car Bombings lays to rest questions that Iraq...

    Immigration fixes real and imagined: Nice carrot, Mr President, where's the stick? The Bush and Cornyn proposal to create a guest worker program does address one way to "solve" illegal immigration: Let them stay. The Bush guest worker proposal however doesnt address causes of illegal immigration and our failure at many levels to stop it. Nor does it ask or propose what level of immigration is in our best interests. We need a comprehensive policy that adresses those questions if we are even to know whether guest worker visas are an appropriate part of the best broader immigration policy. Yet...

    It never ceases to amaze that people are willing to have others do what they want, but seem less inclined to actually change their own behavior. The Onion satirized this impulse two years ago when they joked that: "A study released Monday by the American Public Transportation Association reveals that 98% of Americans support the use of mass transit by others." A good example of local life imitating satire is the results of the latest "survey" done by Envision Central Texas, where self-selected citizens responding to a questionnaire declared their preferences for how and where all of us in central...

    In the debate of whether to drill in ANWR, environmentalists are fond to point out that ANWR holds small promise as resource, a mere 3.1 billion barrels of oil (this is the USGS estimate, other estimates are higher) that could only supply our oil for 6 months. Instead they assert, let us save oil instead of getting more. But in money terms, 3.1 billion barrels is no insubstantial sum, it is a $60 billion pot of gold, or should I say, pool of oil. And powering our whole country for 6 months is far from insubstantial. Drilling in ANWR cannot...

According to this politically correct scenario, Christians have been brutally intolerant while Muslims have generally been quite benign (except in response to Christian provocations, from the Crusades to colonialism). Alas, the charge of Christian intolerance has a good deal of substance, though the historical record is not as ...
