    FRIDAY, APR 9, 1999 How will George W. Bush -- and the GOP -- confront the whispers about his past? JAKE TAPPER Prodigal Son ~snip~ Gov. Bush himself has acknowledged some trouble in his past. In statements recalling then-Gov. Clinton’s admission to have “caused pain” in his marriage, Bush has said that he did “some irresponsible things when I was young and irresponsible,” but that’s been about as specific as he’s gotten lately. He wasn’t always so circumspect about his reputation for womanizing. Ten years ago, at the 1988 Republican Convention, Hartford Courant associate editor David Fink struck up a...

    could go back to President George H.W. Bush's New World Order-UN speech to identify its beginnings in modern times. He told us that we were going to be taken over by it and assured us – strongly – that it would be a successful takeover. I heard his speech when he was giving remember feeling cold chills running down my back and a sense of strongly impending malevolence as I heard his words. I knew, then, that something had changed in the world and that this change was going to be to the extreme detriment of humanity. Since just...

    WILMINGTON, Del. — On the eve of the primary that would end his electoral career, Rep. Mike Castle was in a reflective mood. He seemed calm and confident, yet almost everything he said sounded valedictory as he offered a prescient analysis that explained in advance a defeat that echoes through the nation. A genial and courtly man in the manner of the elder President Bush (who held a fundraiser for him in Kennebunkport), the nine-term congressman was mourning the decline of both the conciliatory style of politics that animated his career and the moderate Republican disposition that the Tea Party...

Bush made the tandem jump from 10,500 feet with Sgt. 1st Class Mike Elliott of the Army's Golden Knights, who guided them to a gentle landing on the lawn of St. Ann's Church.

But why should we trust you when experience proves we could not trust the judgment of President Reagan (who gave us Justices O'Connor and Kennedy) or President George H.W.

    Conspiracy Conspiracy fans can have a field day if Sen. John Kerry wins the Democratic nomination for president, as it appears at this time he will. Conspiracy buffs can say that, once more, the Establishment has won.

    A Strategy for Kerry January 29, 2004 After the first President Bush betrayed conservatives by raising taxes, in spite of his promise never to do so, many conservatives didn’t bother voting for him in 1992. This was one of the reasons he lost to Bill Clinton, who re-energized the conservative movement and brought about a Republican takeover of Congress in the 1994 elections. In the meantime, Clinton’s ambitious national health-care plan flopped. Principled conservatives should hope that history repeats itself in 2004. If John Kerry wins the presidency, Republicans may start acting a bit like conservatives again. Under the current...

This is stonewalling and a cover-up. The president, at his recent news conference, referred to his daily intelligence briefings and said, in his own muddled way, that if they were made public, the people who prepared them would somehow be inhibited in preparing future intelligence briefings. That is so illogical it beggars reply. These briefings are written in summary form. It's not as if they quote Serge,...

    Road To Darkness I really don't understand George Bush. Why can't he say: "I was convinced that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction but apparently our intelligence was faulty. I'm sorry to have misled you, but getting rid of Saddam is still a good idea, etc., and so forth"? No, there is apparently something in the Bush genes that forbids ever admitting to having made a mistake. Such arrogance cost his father a second term, and it could do the same to the son's political ambition. In the father's case, he refused to apologize to the American people for breaking...

    Finally, The Real Reason We Invaded Iraq Has Been Revealed By Chuck Baldwin Food For Thought From The Chuck Wagon September 26, 2003 Initially, the invasion of Iraq was sold to the American people on the premise that Iraq posed an immediate risk to the safety and security of the United States. We were told that Iraq had amassed Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) and if we did not attack first, we were sure to be victimized by terrorist attacks from Iraq. Americans were also told that there were significant ties between Iraq and Al Qaeda. It was even propounded...
  • Dan Frisa Examines Bush's "Compassionate Caving"

    Compassionate Caving Dan Frisa Thursday, Sept. 11, 2003 Throughout the 2000 presidential campaign, candidate George W. Bush defined himself and his policies under the mantle of “compassionate conservatism.” Upon assuming office in 2001, President Bush spoke of changing the tone in Washington, urging a new civility in public debate on the issues of the day. What he didn’t say – ever – was that he would compromise conservative values in some slick Karl Rove–inspired effort to co-opt the Democrats’ leftist agenda, thereby depriving the opposition of many of its key issues and paving the way for a smooth re-election in...
  • Farah Explains "How to Become CIA Director" (in the Clinton Administration)

    How to become CIA director Posted: September 9, 2003 1:00 a.m. Eastern © 2003 For years I've been wondering how someone as sensible as James Woolsey ever became Bill Clinton's CIA director. A new book, getting much acclaim on other points, "Why America Slept," by Gerald Posner, finally answers the question. Indeed, from Posner's account, it seems like it was a mistake. The story is fascinating for what it says about the Clinton administration's priorities and policies. Woolsey was a conservative Democrat, former Rhodes scholar and attorney who served as undersecretary of the Navy in the Carter administration. He...

    Phyllis Schlafly Aug. 27, 2003 Federal court decisions about the Pledge of Allegiance and the Ten Commandments, and the specter raised in Lawrence v. Texas that marriage may no longer be defined as the union of a man and a woman, show that the time has come to curb the Imperial Judiciary. Not only did one federal judge overturn a nearly 60 percent majority of California voters who passed Proposition 187 in 1994, but another single federal judge in Sacramento is at this moment threatening to cancel the California recall election! Alexander Hamilton wrote in the Federalist Papers 78, 81...

    The message in the Baghdad bombing? Posted: August 25, 2003 1:00 a.m. Eastern © 2003 Creators Syndicate, Inc. If terrorism is the murder of innocents for political ends, Aug. 19 was the Day of the Terrorist. In Jerusalem, a suicide bomber blew up a bus packed with Orthodox Jews. In Baghdad, a terrorist drove a truckload of bombs into the hotel-headquarters of the United Nations. Forty perished in the two attacks, 20 are still missing in Baghdad, over 200 were wounded. Both were acts of pure terror, massacres of noncombatants. But as the World Trade Center attacks bore a message...

    Griffin ^ | 01-15-01 | Droleskey, Thomas A
    Sandra Day O’Connor, Part Deux by Thomas A. Droleskey January 15, 2001 “The Court, the Court, the Court.” That mantra was invoked by all manner of well-meaning people during the late presidential campaign. “We can’t waste our vote on Buchanan. We have to vote for George W. Bush. He’s going to reshape the Supreme Court with his appointments. The Court, the Court, the Court.” I was viewed as something of a nine-headed troglodyte for simply reciting the simple truth that as governor of Texas the man who is now president-elect appointed four pro-aborts to the Texas Supreme Court, each of...
