    Moran probably dismisses CAIR’s links to Hamas, if he has heard about them at all, as something trumped up by the “right wing.” How many other politicians have Islamic supremacists bought and paid for?

    Despite what constituents outside of Washington might think, members of Congress are underpaid, a House Legislative Branch appropriator suggested Thursday. Virginia Democrat James P. Moran said he plans to highlight the injustice by introducing an amendment to the Legislative Branch bill during its full committee markup, and at floor consideration of the bill. Moran made the comments while the bill that funds member’s $174,000 salaries was being marked up in the Legislative Branch subcommittee. “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid,” Moran told CQ Roll Call. “I understand that it’s widely felt that...

    The Army is changing clothes. Over the next year, America’s largest fighting force is swapping its camouflage pattern. The move is a quiet admission that the last uniform — a pixelated design that debuted in 2004 at a cost of $5 billion — was a colossal mistake. Soldiers have roundly criticized the gray-green uniform for standing out almost everywhere it’s been worn. Industry insiders have called the financial mess surrounding the pattern a “fiasco.” As Army researchers work furiously on a newer, better camouflage, it’s natural to ask what went wrong and how they’ll avoid the same missteps this time...

    Democrats in House of Reps. joined J Street in supporting Obama administration's attempt to force Israel into making painful concessions Seventy-four Democrats in the House of Representatives have joined the dovish J Street organization in supporting the Obama administration's attempt to force Israel into making painful concessions to the Palestinian Authority. “In our view, support for a two-state resolution is inseparable from such support for Israel, its special relationship with the United States, and its very survival as a democratic homeland for the Jewish people,” the letter said. Seven Jewish members signed the letter, including Reps. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), John...

    Push to blame the Iraq war on "Jewish influence" sounds a familiar theme http://www.jewishworldreview.com | A few months ago, a great deal of tut-tutting and dignified outrage emanated from much of the civilized world over the broadcast of a series on Egyptian television which sought to dramatize the "truth" of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion. But, as the debate over President Bush's rightful determination to pursue war against the Iraqi regime of Saddam Hussein heats up, it looks like the dimwitted propagandists who write scripts for Egyptian potboilers have been sharing sources with prominent Washington pundits, leftist anti-war...

    Arlington County in Northern Virginia will try to maximize its population number in the 2010 Census by counting illegal immigrants, and part of the reason for doing so is to capture some of the $300 billion in federal funds distributed to local governments each year based on census numbers. That’s what local officials, Census Bureau officials and documents, and Rep. James Moran (D-Va.) indicated at a meeting on Wednesday. Moran and Census officials told CNSNews.com they are preparing to reach out to illegal immigrants by emphasizing that they have nothing to fear from the census because it does not differentiate...

    If whoever plays the Nazi-analogy card first loses, then Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) is a double loser. First, for having played the Bush = Hitler card, second, for lacking the courage to stick by his slander. Moran, a member of Congress' Out-of-Iraq Caucus, was a guest on this evening's Tucker. The eponymous host was hammering him over the fact that despite all their inflamed anti-war rhetoric, the Dems have folded like the proverbial lawn chair, caving to all President Bush's funding requests for Iraq. When Moran could take the taunting no longer, he resorted to the loser's strategy. But watch...

    When it comes to anti-war politics, Rosie O'Donnell is one bedfellow Chris Matthews would gladly do without. The MSNBC host made that crystal clear on this afternoon's Hardball. Matthews played a clip of O'Donnell's recent slanging match in which she unmistakably intimated to Elizabeth Hasselbeck that US troops are terrorists, responsible for 655,000 civilian deaths in Iraq [itself a grossly exaggerated figure in any case]. MSNBC HOST CHRIS MATTHEWS: While I generally sympathize with her point of view, her skepticism about this war, I do have a problem with her suggestion that we're the terrorists, which is clearly what the...

    Some U.S. House Democrats who want to close the Guantánamo Bay detention center are floating an idea to move captives to American military brigs on U.S. soil. Republicans are opposing the idea, with one Florida congressman issuing a press release, ``America's Most Wanted Terrorists Not Welcome in the Sunshine State.'' Rep. James Moran, D-Va., a member of the House defense subcommittee, said in a recent interview on Fox News Channel, ``I'm simply offering some options.

On December 15 the House of Representatives passed a resolution "protecting the symbols and traditions of Christmas" by an overwhelming 401-22 vote.

    New Democrats’ Growing Anti-Semitism Prior to the New Democrat left-wing contingent (specifically the Soros/Ickes “money-wing”) usurping the Democrat Party, the term liberal meant tolerant, generous, broad-minded and bountiful. Now, as has actually been placed into practice by the aforementioned group, the word means intolerance (of any and all differing ideologies including the religions of Judaism and Christianity), licentiousness, increasing mean-spiritedness and the zealous preaching of ignorance, want and the philosophy of lack. For example, one of the New Democrat leadership’s constant mantras is: ‘The reason you don’t have enough and will never have enough is because of those nasty conservatives...

    Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) has withdrawn her support of legislation that would reinstate the military draft, because she believes it would bolster the Bush administration’s ability to wage several wars simultaneously. Norton initially backed Rep. Charles Rangel’s (D-N.Y.) bill on the draft in January 2003. But a Norton spokeswoman said the legislator now believes the bill, if enacted, would force draftees to fight wars they might not support. The spokeswoman added that a draft would help President Bush’s “preemptive” war on terrorism. Rangel said last year that he introduced the bill to highlight the large percentage of minorities who...

Moran told police he pushed her in self-defense when she came toward him, but Mrs. Moran disputed that. There was no evidence of assault, and charges weren't filed. They divorced shortly after the incident." There is therefore irony in the following claim that Moran now makes on his website: "December 18 - Congressman Moran receives an award from the Korean Community...

    Rep. Jim Moran of the 8th Congressional District came to Falls Church for a town meeting last Saturday morning. As the floor opened, the first question was from a woman who addressed the issue of health care, one on the minds of many people in attendance. The question addressed the need for the federal government to cover prescription drugs under Medicare, an issue that Moran said "affects hundreds of thousands of Americans." Moran agreed that Medicare needs to cover prescription drugs and said that he was also opposed to using the Medicare surplus for other federal programs. Questions on health...

    Jewish organizations condemned Rep. James P. Moran Jr. (D-Va.) today for delivering what they said were anti-Semitic remarks at an anti-war forum in Reston, in which he suggested that American Jews are responsible for pushing the country to war with Iraq and that Jewish leaders could prevent war if they wanted. At the Reston forum, attended by about 120 people at St. Anne's Episcopal Church last Monday, Moran discussed why he thought anti-war sentiment was not more effective in the United States. "If it were not for the strong support of the Jewish community for this war with Iraq we...

    Jewish groups are furious at Rep. James Moran, D-Va., for saying, "If it were not for the strong support of the Jewish community for this war with Iraq we would not be doing this." In a speech March 3, Moran "blasted the Bush administration for its rush to war but saved some of his harshest criticism for Jewish leaders in the United States," the Connection Newspapers of northern Virginia reported Wednesday. "The leaders of the Jewish community are influential enough that they could change the direction of where this is going, and I think they should," Moran said. Ira...

    WASHINGTON, May 1 (UPI) -- Legislation to standardize state-issued driver's licenses across the United States, and to mandate that those licenses carry a computer chip and incorporate some kind of unique identifier such as a fingerprint, will be introduced in Congress on Wednesday. The Driver's License Modernization Act of 2002, sponsored by Reps. Jim Moran, D-Va., and Tom Davis, R-Va., also directs that the chip be capable of accepting software for other applications, including those of private companies. The objective of the legislation is to prevent identity fraud and enhance national security by making driver's licenses a better way to...

    Some years ago, I sent an intern to the Alexandria, Va., City Hall to take a look at the contributor filings of then-Mayor Jim Moran. The information the young man was seeking was supposedly available to the public, but as he went through it, he was grabbed from behind by hizzoner himself. Moran insisted on knowing why he was looking at the records. It was not a pleasant confrontation. The intern didn’t know what to do and beat a hasty retreat after having been yelled at by a mayor whom he described later as out of control. He didn’t go...

    Moran Under Fire. The silence among his colleagues about the questionable personal loans that Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) has received from various people with business before the Congress has finally been broken. Ways and Means Chairman Bill Thomas (R-Calif.) lashed out at Moran on Thursday with some harsh, highly personal words on the House floor after the Virginian introduced an amendment that would have cut $590,000 from the Joint Committee on Taxation's budget request. Moran, who was helping to manage the legislative appropriations bill, was trying to express dissatisfaction with the fact that the tax panel has been slow to...

    The Washington Post recently ran an article alleging that Congressman Jim Moran received a “favorable loan” from MNBA in exchange for his support for a bill the lender wanted passed. The article also cited some earlier “wrongs” of a similar nature allegedly committed by Jim Moran. In the article below, Kevin Appel, a former ACDC chair and longtime Arlington coordinator for the Moran for Congress committee, presents more information on the loan—and on its context—in an effort to give Arlington Democrats “the rest of the story.” by Kevin Appel In 1994, Jim and Mary Moran faced the tragic news that...

    Tempers Flare at Debate Congressional, board candidates trade accusations at League of Women Voters forum. Fighting Words After the debate was over last Thursday, campaign managers for Jim Moran and Scott Tate nearly came to blows outside the Central Library’s auditorium, as an argument over a Moran campaign flier escalated into a partisan shoving match. Republican Mike Lane, head of the Tate campaign, said that Moran had misused a campaign survey, part of what he said was "a long history" of dishonesty from the incumbent Democrat. In turn, Dan Drummond, Moran’s campaign manager, said that Tate’s supporters were just trying...
