    There are two bans on drilling–one by Congress and one by an White House executive order put in place by President Bush’s father. Why won’t the son revoke that order NOW if he truly believes expanding American oil production by increasing access to the Outer Continental Shelf is an urgent priority. I quoted the Institute for Energy Research last week: “Mr. Bush, Tear Up That Offshore Drilling Ban.”

    WASHINGTON — President Bush was set to act Tuesday on his State of the Union promise to sign an executive order directing federal agencies to ignore any future earmarks not voted on by Congress. Bush warned lawmakers he would flourish his veto pen if Congress does not rein in the number of congressional earmarks — money set aside for pet projects — that make it into law without a vote. As many as 95 percent of earmarks are inserted after Congress has voted on appropriations measures, and the pork is never seen by most lawmakers.

    The Bush administration will probably not issue an executive order canceling the 9,000 earmarks in the omnibus spending bill, the New York Times reports, as the White House does not want to have a war with Congress in 2008. Instead, they will review each request line by line and may demand support for each in writing from its sponsor, proving that the money actually got requested by its beneficiary and it will be spent as intended. This will disappoint many who saw this as an final opportunity for this administration and the GOP to reclaim some credibility on fiscal discipline:...

    Each presidential candidate should be asked if he supports English as our official language and whether he will rescind Executive Order 13166. In his last days in office, Pres. Clinton issued Executive Order 13166. This order is an unfunded mandate that directs any entity that receives federal funds to provide services in any of the over 200 foreign languages. With a stroke of his pen, Pres. Bush or his successor could rescind E.O. 13166.

    WASHINGTON - President Bush ordered Friday that federal agencies cannot seize private property except for public projects such as hospitals or roads. The move occurred on the one-year anniversary of a controversial Supreme Court decision that gave local governments broad power to bulldoze people's homes for commercial development. The majority opinion in the Supreme Court case involving New London, Conn., homeowners limited the homeowners' rights by saying local governments could take private property for purely economic development-related projects because the motive was to bring more jobs and tax revenue to a city.

Two months after the Dec. 7, 1941 bombing of Pearl Harbor, Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, ordering all Japanese-Americans living on the West Coast to move inland, fearing an uproar from their assumed loyalty to Japan.

    Late Friday afternoon, Governor Mark Warner quietly issued an amendment to an existing executive order that adds "sexual orientation" to the list of protected classes in state government. The Governor also included the language in his latest state budget. This action changes the long-standing public policy of Virginia and grants homosexual advocates a tremendous victory. The executive order takes effect immediately, and Governor-elect Tim Kaine has already indicated that he plans to continue the new policy after he is inaugurated. The General Assembly next year could pass legislation blocking the executive order, but it would take two-thirds of the lawmakers...

The men and women in the branches of our military service in Iraq and in Afghanistan believe strongly and see daily good from our presence in these once tortured lands. Our constitutional system allows wavering lines between the different branches of government and between the federal and state governments. There are few clear, unmistakable powers which any one part of our federal system can exercise, and even when those powers exist, the diffusion of accountability is so great...

Executive Order 13223 ended more than 30 years of increasing openness in government.

    "We don't know if that's going to affect (relations) with the Russian Orthodox church. The future will show," Interfax new agency quoted Patriarch Alexy II as saying. Metropolitan Kirill, a senior official in the Russian Orthodox church, attended the meeting with Benedict on Alexy's behalf. Alexy ruled out the possibility of inviting Benedict to Russia in the near future, calling on the new pope to address the proselytizing of Orthodox followers by Catholic missionaries that he alleges went on during John Paul's reign. These accusations led Alexy to block John Paul from visiting Russia in 2004, ending the late pontiff's...

    The late, revered President Ronald Reagan is being enlisted in an all-out campaign to lift President Bush’s restrictions on embryonic stem-cell research. Even before President Reagan died on June 5, fifty-eight U.S. senators signed a letter asking President Bush to remove those restrictions. Now many of those senators, from Democrat Dianne Feinstein (Calif.) to Republican Orrin Hatch (Utah), are pointing to Reagan’s long illness and death as the perfect justification for why such research is needed. But embryonic stem-cell research requires creating a human embryo and killing it. As President Bush recognizes, this raises profound moral objections. And what the...

In an executive order issued on Dec. 30, Bush called for a 1.5 percent across-the-board raise for civilian white-collar federal employees and a 0.5 percent increase in locality-based pay. Lawmakers would like to grant civil servants the same raise as uniformed military service members, but Bush has said that such an increase would be too costly...
