  • Why Everyone Should Be Terrified By The GOP’s Abortion Bill Debacle (must read!)

    The Federalist ^ | 1-22-15 | Mollie Hemingway
    Today marks the 42nd anniversary of the Supreme Court legalizing abortion on demand throughout pregnancy. The pro-life movement commemorates this day with marches, worship services and lobbying for bills to protect unborn children. Pro-lifers were promised by the Republican leaders they just helped elect and re-elect that the House of Representatives would pass a bill today banning most abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, a point after which infants can feel pain and survive if born prematurely. The legislation has been passed by the House in the previous Congress and is extremely popular in national polling. “One of the clearest...

    Canada, were being played for a patsy on the oil sands. It’s being orchestrated by an unholy alliance headed by U.S. President Barack Obama, aided and abetted by American Democratic billionaires, hypocritical Canadian and U.S. environmentalists and Canada’s opposition parties. While Obama acts like Hamlet on approving the Keystone XL pipeline, and while the rest of the usual suspects rail against the Northern Gateway pipeline, or Keystone, or both — proxy fights for the real issue, which is the development of Canada’s oil sands — Obama is upping U.S. fossil fuel production like stink. And no one among the usual...

    The Hill ^ | Alexander Bolton
    National Security Adviser Susan Rice’s comments that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl served with "honor and dignity" has amplified GOP criticism of President Obama's prisoner swap and undermined Rice’s credibility on Capitol Hill. Independent experts have cast doubt on Rice’s judgment, given questions about whether Bergdahl was captured by the Taliban after deserting his post in Afghanistan. Even allies of the White House are suggesting she stay off the Sunday talk shows. “When I saw her on TV making that honor and distinction comment it just seems so phony to me,” said Andrew J. Bacevich, a professor of history and international relations...

    (AFP) – Mar 25, 2011 WASHINGTON — The United States fired 16 new Tomahawk cruise missiles at Libyan targets on Thursday and Friday as part of the US role in the UN-mandated mission to protect Libyan civilians, the Pentagon said. The new missile launches brought the total number of Tomahawks used by US and coalition forces to at least 170 as they enforce a UN resolution to set up a no-fly zone over Libya to stop air attacks by the forces of Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi. Pentagon officials said 16 new missiles were fired in the 24 hours to 0500...

    A woman named Rice in a top administration job, ambitious to move up to secretary of state, hitting the Sunday talk shows to aggressively promote a Middle East narrative that’s good for the president but destined to crumble under scrutiny. Accusations that intelligence on Al Qaeda links in the Middle East was cherry-picked by American officials to create a convenient reality. A national security apparatus that becomes enmeshed with the political image-making machine. Sound familiar? Last time it was Condoleezza Rice helping her war-obsessed bosses spin their deceptive web, as they recklessly tried to re-engineer the Middle East. This time...

    Timothy F. Geithner has been misidentified as a former Wall Street insider from Goldman Sachs so many times since he became the Treasury secretary that he and his advisers had taken to joking about it. Then the joke backfired. Earlier this month, Mr. Geithner had breakfast in Manhattan with Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and Robert Steel, a deputy mayor and former Treasury official in the Bush administration who had previously worked at Goldman. Facetiously, a Geithner aide said Mr. Steel and Mr. Geithner knew each other from the investment bank. Later that day at a public event, the mayor in...

    Energy: Interior Secretary Ken Salazar announced Monday that his agency would look into drilling for oil in the Atlantic soon. It sounds good. But a glimpse at the strategy suggests Salazar's real aim is to block drilling. Ordinarily, even a little motion from federal bureaucrats to open America's offshore to domestic drilling is welcome news. But in a speech before Platts Energy Podium Monday, the interior secretary took back as much as he gave, announcing that the government would look into drilling in the Atlantic, but only after walking the whole process through a long regulatory gauntlet that will be...

    “War Is Peace.” “Freedom is Slavery.” “Ignorance is Strength.” These slogans are spoken in Newspeak, the fictional language of George Orwell’s twisted utopia in 1984. By removing meaning from words and increasing state control over speech—and thought—Newspeak is designed to manipulate those who hear it. In California, Newspeak is now spoken fluently by those who seek to advance a political agenda in healthcare by avoiding scrutiny. Under the guise of “access to primary care,” the Regents of the University of California have been conducting an experiment on women in Concord, Los Angeles and San Diego.

    It took more time than it should have, but on Tuesday Barack Obama firmly rejected the racism and paranoia of his former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr., and he made it clear that the preacher does not represent him, his politics or his campaign. Senator Obama has had to struggle to explain this relationship ever since a video surfaced of Mr. Wright damning the United States from his pulpit. Last month, Mr. Obama delivered a speech in which he said he disapproved of Mr. Wright’s racially charged comments but said that the pastor still played an important role in...

    Congress is poised to give the President a $516 billion omnibus spending bill that would downgrade previous mandates for a double-layered border fence to be built along the southern border. The Secure Fence Act of 2006 required “two layers of reinforced fencing” be constructed in five separate areas, but Texas Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R.) slipped a provision into a fiscal year 2008 spending bill that weakens the law. Hutchison and fellow Texas Sen. John Cornyn (R.) believe Border and Customs Enforcement should have more freedom to build fencing where they see fit instead of having to follow exact requirements...

Republicans outside the negotiating team are asking that Graham's amendment, as well as a few others, get a floor vote before a cloture is attempted on the bill. "If they want the bill to have a chance, that's what has to happen," said Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., who said he is willing to vote for the first cloture motion to proceed to the bill to allow...

    Key Republican and Democratic senators, working to attract more support for President Bush's stalled immigration bill, huddled Wednesday with Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff to discuss tougher border security and workplace enforcement. At a Capitol Hill meeting, the bipartisan group continued talks aimed at cobbling together enough backing from skeptical Republicans to quickly revive the measure that would grant legal status to as many as 12 million unlawful immigrants. A day after Bush fielded criticism from Republicans whose opposition derailed the bill last week, the White House said it would be open to changes to the delicate bipartisan deal. Architects...

    For a long time now, the political Left has been a source of widespread puzzlement. Many people instinctively suspect its insidiousness, but are uncertain of its precise nature. The confusion is further compounded by the apparent incongruence between the Left’s flowery rhetoric and the detrimental effects of its actions. Unable to grasp its nature, many have followed with uneasy apprehension its growth into a powerful force whose seemingly inescapable influence has been increasingly felt in virtually every sector of our society. Duplicitous by disposition, the Left indeed does not lend itself to easy analysis. Although its corrosiveness has been intuited...

Any effort to pretend that the Bush Administration is the first one to have come up with the concept is wrong. Ridiculously wrong. And even beyond the traditional nature of the demand for six-party talks, they make sense. If you don't have six-party talks, then North Korea will try to push South Korea out of the diplomatic equation altogether and will be able to avoid getting any...

Gnassingbe Eyadema, 69, who died of a heart attack on Saturday, came to power himself in a military coup and led his tiny, impoverished country - just over two-thirds the size of Scotland - for 38 years, making him the world’s longest-serving ruler after Cuba’s Fidel Castro. He was one of the last of Africa’s so-called "Big Men". A general when he...

The controversy that erupted over the president’s reference to Iraq’s quest for uranium is one example of how his opponents have misrepresented what the president has actually said. Recall that in his State of the Union address, the president said the British told us that Iraq had been seeking to purchase uranium in Africa.

    It’s disgusting to see people apologize for doing nothing wrong, especially to wrongdoers. On July 14, Miami-Dade County mayor Alex Penelas spoke at the NAACP’s national convention in Miami Beach and apologized for protests of Nelson Mandela during his June 1990 visit to Miami. Why did these protests occur? Maybe it had something to do with the former South African president’s affection for mass murderers. Sentenced to life imprisonment in June 1964 for armed resistance to the apartheid regime, Mandela was released in February 1990. In May he visited Libyan tyrant Muammar Qadhafi and received the “International Qadhafi Prize for...

    The corrupt Saudi leadership has a vicious "tiger by the tail" named al-Qaeda, a beast that they assiduously cultivated without compunction. The heart of the matter is this - there is a palpable belief among many Americans that the ruling Saudi royals are a duplicitous bunch that cannot be trusted. And, despite Saudi Arabia's public relations endeavors, there's a sense that Saudi royals are profoundly entrenched in extremist ideology and in league with al-Qaeda and other terrorist organizations as money trails have demonstrated. That said, even prior Saudi funding of al-Qaeda is indicative of complicity in heinous deeds, including the...

    The Troika Of Duplicity By William A. Mayer Now that Saddam’s regime has been pounded back into the desert sand – brought about by what is likely the most stunningly effective use of military power in modern history - an awesomely updated lightning war - it is becoming clear that aside from ending Iraq’s participation in the Islamic terror network, the key prize that is emerging is intelligence - detailed and verifiable - on the inner workings of this nebulous, world-wide irregular army of fanatics, tacticians, planners, arms merchants and financiers. Indeed, hard copy evidence is now becoming available,...

    FRANCE gave Saddam Hussein's regime regular reports on its dealings with American officials, documents unearthed in the wreckage of the Iraqi foreign ministry have revealed. The first Iraqi files to emerge documenting French help for the regime show that Paris shared with Baghdad the contents of private transatlantic meetings and diplomatic traffic from Washington. The information, said in the files to have come partly from "friends of Iraq" at the French foreign ministry, kept Saddam abreast of every development in American planning and may have helped him to prepare for war. One report warned of an American "attempt to involve...
