    Almost 60 House liberals, along with prominent lawyers, journalists, and retired officials and military officers, are lobbing an inflammatory charge--"war crimes"--toward a large number of the Bush administration's most senior current and former officials and lawyers. These critics accuse them of approving torture and other illegal interrogation methods. We are likely to hear a growing clamor for appointment of a special prosecutor, presumably by the next administration. And human-rights activists are already suggesting that their friends abroad should snatch and prosecute any former members of what they call the Bush "torture team" who dare visit Europe. These critics are right...

    'Greatest' legacy being destroyed By: RAY HAYNES - Commentary A lot of comments have been directed at this country's "Greatest Generation," those who suffered the Great Depression, fought World War II, and then rebuilt this country from the ruins of those catastrophic events. I remember, as my generation attended college and entered the work force, a lot of debate among my peers as to what we would do when we take over. We all thought we would "do it right," make this country a better place to work, live and raise a family. I think I can say, having inherited...

    Freedom is a fragile thing. A candlelight in a windstorm, if you will, requiring constant vigilance to preserve. It is never safe, as the old saying goes, as long as the California Legislature (or Congress, for that matter) is in session. That is because the ruling class, that is, elected officials, bureaucrats, and their allies in the private sector, get money, power and prestige from bigger government, and bigger government is an anathema to freedom. Therefore, those who are in charge of protecting our freedom, (i.e. government officials) have a vested interest in taking it away. Human nature being what...

    Sometimes, I think that I am repeating myself over and over again. It seems that my liberal friends in the Legislature keep doing the same things over and over again, and never realize that it is what they are doing that is hurting the rest of us. The latest thing is affordable housing. About a month ago, playing off of the theme of her husband’s presidential campaign, Senator Hillary Clinton said, “It’s the American dream, stupid,” obviously implying that Democrats should focus on making sure people can buy a home—the “American dream”. This has led to a lot of the...

    The California Legislature has been on a one month hiatus after six months of session. I have often compared the legislative process to a roller coaster ride, and following that analogy, the first six months of session are sort of like the part of the roller coaster where the ride takes the riders higher and higher with the chain underneath. Everyone on the ride knows that the higher the ride goes, the wilder the ride will be when the car finally goes into free fall. This year the roller coaster ride had a couple of interesting dips, the largest being...

Some conservatives are urging the state GOP to withdraw its endorsement of Schwarzenegger at next month's state party convention in San Jose.

    The latest attempt to grant driver's licenses to illegal immigrants in California cleared a Senate committee on Thursday but with provisions that restrict how the licenses can be used and what they would look like. The bill, by Sen. Gil Cedillo, D-Los Angeles, would bring California into compliance with federal law. The REAL ID Act, signed by President Bush last week, requires states to verify that people who apply for a driver's license are in the country legally. It also allows states to choose whether to issue driver's licenses to illegal immigrants as long as they have different markings —...

The Assembly and Senate Judiciary Committees both rejected an amendment offered by Republican Assemblyman Ray Haynes, who claimed the proposal would strengthen the intent of voters who approved a ballot measure five years ago that prevents the state from recognizing gay marriages performed elsewhere. Other laws bar same-sex marriages from taking place in California. Conservative groups immediately said they would try to gather the nearly 600,000 signatures required...

    Talk to anyone and they will tell you that our national borders are out of control. We are either unwilling or unable to enforce immigration laws. The result is billions of dollars in free government services paid to those who break our laws, a flagrant abuse of those laws, and a system that exploits those who try to enter this country illegally. My first observation about the problem is that I understand the motivation of those who want to come to this country. If I lived in abject poverty in a third world country, I would do whatever it takes,...

The translation, Ms. King explained in Spanish, was not exact enough. It would have to be redone. When the man returned, he would be eligible for a card bearing his photograph, date of birth, height, eye color and the words "Not Valid for Identification." Tennessee is one of only two states that issue two different driver's permits: a license, for citizens and permanent residents; and a certificate for...

The poll, cited on CNN's "Lou Dobbs Tonight" program yesterday, noted a huge majority – 81 percent – believes local and state police should help federal authorities enforce laws against illegal immigration. Only 14 percent disagreed. Voters were also asked, "Do you support or oppose the Bush administration's proposal to give millions of illegal aliens guest worker status and the opportunity to become citizens?" Only 35 percent gave their support, and 56 percent said no. "A majority opposed...

    Friday, May 06, 2005 - SACRAMENTO -- Stymied in his efforts to allow illegal immigrants to get driver's licenses, Sen. Gil Cedillo, D-Los Angeles, has found a backdoor way around the ban with a proposal that would exempt undocumented motorists from vehicle-impound laws. Under current law, for 30 days police can impound the vehicle of a motorist caught driving without a valid license. Cedillo's bill would exempt those who don't have a license simply because they are not legal U.S. residents. Cedillo said law enforcement resources should be dedicated to going after serious driving offenses such as drunk driving, not...

    <p>In 1992, Russia's first post-Communist leader, Boris Yeltsin, made a historic decision to open the nation's archives to Western scholars and historians. Yeltsin was anxious to expose the misdeeds of past Soviet leaders, and his decision opened the floodgates on evidence that proved profoundly discomfiting to apologists for the Communist system.</p>

    Republicans say Schwarzenegger's popularity with voters will strengthen their hand in Sacramento and reduce legislative bickering. SACRAMENTO — Hundreds of times in the five-year reign of Democratic Gov. Gray Davis, Ray Haynes has stood on the Assembly floor and spoken like the true conservative he is. Assemblyman Haynes has beseeched Democrats who dominate the Legislature to cut spending and free business from government's tentacles. More than 95% of the time, Haynes says, Democrats did the opposite.

    (CNSNews.com) - Republican gubernatorial candidate Arnold Schwarzenegger has created a rift among conservatives in California. While some are willing to accept the actor's liberal social views for a GOP victory, others fear he might damage the party's pro-family agenda. As voters prepare to cast their ballots Tuesday in the Golden State's recall election, conservatives remain divided between Schwarzenegger, who has moderate to liberal social views, and state Sen. Tom McClintock, a staunch conservative Republican. With the campaign winding down, however, some conservatives have come to grips with Schwarzenegger's views as long as he is able to defeat Democrat Lt. Gov....

    To my fellow conservatives: By now you may have heard that I have endorsed Arnold Schwarzenegger for Governor. I have received a variety of responses to that decision, some good, and some bad. I understand them all, and I believe each of you need to know the reason I made this decision. It was not lightly made, and the result of a lot of discussion, thought and prayer. I take my role as a conservative in the legislature seriously, and my endorsement means something to me. I don't give it away lightly, and I do so only when I believe...

    LEGISLATIVE ALERT By Senator Ray Haynes August 30, 2002 The Democrats are at it again. Another sneaky, underhanded trick is being played out even as I write this. The Assembly Democrats, with the blessing of Governor Davis, are attempting to triple the Car Tax! When the Assembly Republicans held firm against this tax increase in the budget, and polling showed the Democrats that this was a very unpopular tax with the voters, the Democrats backed off and suggested raising the cigarette tax instead. However, current information from the Legislative Analyst's Office indicates that the budget deficit has grown by another...
