    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.

    Sixty-four years ago today, a quick swipe of a pen by President Franklin D. Roosevelt forever changed the lives of tens of thousands of U.S. citizens. 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. (snip) In 1988, President Ronald Reagan issued an apology for the wrongful imprisonment of the 120,000 American citizens. Those incarcerated were issued $20,000, meant to compensate their losses.

Bush insisted he alone should decide who goes before such a military court, his aides tell Newsweek. The tribunal document gives the government the power to try, sentence -- and even execute -- suspected foreign terrorists in secrecy, under special rules that would deny them constitutional rights and allow no chance to appeal. ...

    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...
