    The Republican-controlled Senate will begin hearings Jan. 9 on Judge Samuel Alito's appointment to the Supreme Court, spurning President Bush's call for a final confirmation vote before year's end. "It simply wasn't possible to accommodate the schedule that the White House wanted," Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa., chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said late Thursday. He outlined a schedule that envisions five days of hearings, followed by a vote in committee on Jan. 17 and the full Senate on Jan. 20. Bush nominated Alito on Monday to fill the seat of Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, who has often held the...

    Palestinians Close to Deal on Disarming Hundreds of MilitantsBy Ali Daraghmeh Associated Press Writer Published: Jun 23, 2005 NABLUS, West Bank (AP) - Palestinian officials said Thursday they reached a tentative agreement to absorb about 700 gunmen in this West Bank city into the Palestinian security services, pushing forward with a campaign aimed at disarming rogue militants. The program of offering government jobs to militants in exchange for giving up their weapons has been a centerpiece of Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas' efforts to impose law and order in the chaotic West Bank and Gaza Strip. Israel has said the tactic...
  • DeWine: Compromise Caveat (If "extraordinary circumstances" unfounded Nuke Option Still on Table)

    This is important. Sen. Mike DeWine (R-OH) during the press conference: Some of you who are looking at the language may wonder what some of the clauses mean. The understanding is – and we don’t think this will happen – but if an individual senator believes in the future that a filibuster is taking place under something that’s not extraordinary circumstances, we of course reserve the right to do what we could have done tomorrow which is to cast a yes vote for the constitutional option.

    TWO MEN are being put on trial by the military this week because they answered their consciences. Pablo Paredes and Kevin Benderman refused to accept the lies they were told about the U.S. war on Iraq. Refused to accept the racist dehumanization of the Iraqi people. Refused to participate in the violence of the most lethal military machine in the history of the world. Refused to go to war for oil and empire in Iraq. Paredes, a third class petty officer, refused to board his Navy ship bound for the Persian Gulf, bringing 3,000 Marines to the battlefield--to kill and...

    A Comment on Campos from David Allen White Ph.D. Author of The Mouth of the Lion In the late 1980s, Bishop Antonio de Castro Mayer of the diocese of Campos, Brazil, realized that his days with his flock were drawing to a close. Pope John Paul II had forced him into retirement when the Bishop had reached the age of 75, but he had remained a strong and guiding presence as Rome's newly appointed Bishop, Carlos Navarro, sought to stamp out the Tridentine Mass, and thus the Catholic Faith, in the diocese. Bishop de Castro Mayer made arrangements with Archbishop...

    ot even clear, declarative sentences--"I will hunt down and kill the terrorists wherever they are"--have saved John Kerry from the perception that he is too weak to fight the war on terrorism. An Annenberg poll released last week found that, by a 14-point margin, respondents trusted President Bush more than the Massachusetts senator to protect the nation from Al Qaeda. And it's not just Kerry's strength that is in question--it's his judgment. David CowlesWhen Kerry accused Bush of "diverting [his] attention from the real war on terror" against Al Qaeda by invading Iraq, the president's surrogates shot back that Kerry...

    LONDON: A group related with Al Qaida said it would continue to attack Europe after a three-month truce apparently promised by terrorist leader Osama bin Laden ends July 15, reports said here. A group called Abu Hafs al-Masri Brigades sent a letter to a Britain-based Arabic language newspaper saying: "To the European people... you only have a few more days to accept Bin Laden's truce or you will only have yourselves to blame," Xinhua reports. "Muslims in the West should leave for Muslim states if they can," the Asharq al-Awsat newspaper quoted parts of the letter said to be from...

    NATO leaders moved on from bitter rows over Iraq today and turned to tough talks on reshaping their alliance for new security threats. "A period of distance between Chirac, Schroeder, Blair and Bush is over and a new period of collaboration has begun," declared Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi after a dinner in Istanbul for the leaders of NATO's 26 nations. NATO Secretary-General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer cited the alliance's plans to widen its peace mission in Afghanistan as proof it can project stability far from national borders. The leaders will also agree to train the insurgency-beset security forces of...

    Spain's problem with terrorism is Europe's: It does not want to defend itself.MadridBETWEEN MARCH 11, when terrorists linked to al Qaeda killed 191 Spanish commuters with bomb attacks on four trains, and March 14, when Spanish voters shocked the world by removing José-María Aznar's pro-war Popular party (PP) from power and electing the Socialist (PSOE) candidate José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, the world's attention was riveted on Spain. But soon dozens were arrested, and on April 3 another 7, believed to be the ringleaders, killed themselves with a bomb when their apartment in the Madrid suburb of Leganés was surrounded by...

    Spain's vote Sunday was a cry of anguish. Almost eight of 10 voters turned out to deliver an upset victory to the opponents of the war in Iraq. Some Spanish voters were angry that Spanish soldiers had joined the American-led coalition. Many were furious that their government would blame Basque separatists for last week's train bombings when all signs really pointed to al-Qaida. And all of Spain was still in shock and mourning over those terrible attacks. But this should be understood, too, in Spain and across the rest of the free world: The Spanish people have sent a dangerously...

    I read an interview with a North Vietnamese general in which he stated that North Vietnam was close to giving up when the United Sates suprised them by capitulating. I'm not sure if this was on Free Republic or not. I've searched here and the internet with no luck. This has obvious connections to Kerry if he played a part in the US capitulating and abandoning South Vietnam to the aftermath. This ring a bell for anyone?

    QUEER AMERICA by Timothy Rollins, Editor and Publisher November 27, 2003 I wrote a column earlier this year by the name of 'Queer Nation' in reference to our Canadian friends and the perverted action taken by the Ontario Court of Appeal as it pertained to same-sex couples and allowing 'so-called' gay couples to 'marry'. Why is it perverted from this perspective? Simple. Because marriage has been from the beginning of recorded history - regardless of what belief system you may ascribe to - the union of men and women. It wasn't Adam and Steve nor was it Madam and Eve...

    On Sunday afternoon, the 25th of May 2003, the State of Israel ceased to exist. It became, by its own action and consent, a protectorate of the United States of America. Prime Minister Ariel Sharon presented the cabinet with the “Road Map”, the plan that calls for the creation, in Eretz Yisrael, within five years, of a sovereign state for the Arabs who call themselves “Palestinians.” Israel gives up the right to enter “Palestinian” cities in pursuit of terrorists and terrorist organizations that attack and murder her citizens; commits herself to desist from “targeted assassinations,” which is what the world...

    Which brings us -- believe it or not -- to the subject of Senator Trent "I Put My Foot In My Mouth Again" Lott. The notorious 'Thee-Stooges-In-One' Senator decided to use the occasion of Senator Strom Thurmond's hundredth birthday to condemn Americans for not having the wisdom to elect this once-stalwart Southern racist as President when the dedicated Dixiecrat-Democrat ran for president on an independent ticket dedicated to preserving racial segregation and rolling back the civil-rights reforms of Republicans and fellow Democrat Hubert Humphrey. If only Americans had voted for Strom in 1948, Senator Lott seemed to be saying, all...

    WASHINGTON -- With a trip to Mexico set for later this week, President Bush on Tuesday urged the Senate to act quickly to allow thousands of foreigners to seek legal residence even though they are in the United States illegally, saying such action would demonstrate America's compassion. But Senate scheduling conflicts and strong opposition from a senior Democrat make the chances appear slim that the Democratic-controlled chamber will comply with Bush's wishes. As a result, the president apparently will be deprived of a popular initiative to tout Friday while attending an international aid conference in Monterrey.Rest of the Story
