    House Bill 4681 continues a long, sad history of peacemaking attemptsBy Congressman Jim Marshall (D-GA) [Barf Alert]The tangled politics of Middle Eastern peacemaking has a rich history of unintended consequences. Nearly a century ago, a perceptive British officer familiar with Palestine offered this bit of irony about the treaties ending World War I: "After the 'war to end war' they seem to have been pretty successful in Paris at making a 'peace to end peace." And now, in support of Israel, U.S. House members passed a bill that Israel's most senior military leader believes will only make matters worse -...

    For a week, the killings of Richard “R.D.” and Jessie M. “Tiny” Shepard of Marshall have been described using words such as “violent,” “brutal” and “heinous.” But a probable cause statement filed in Saline County Associate Circuit Court over the weekend in conjunction with the arrests of three suspects takes the shocking nature of the crime to a new level - alleging the murders were planned in advance by a 16-year-old juvenile in cooperation with the two suspects named over the weekend, Spencer Tromont Anderson, 18, and Lyndale Devor Henderson, 17; that the trio, all from Marshall, planned who would...

    "The Iranian nuclear program crisis is currently presenting the greatest challenge to the national security strategy of the Bush Administration. Strategists, diplomats and policy makers are all hard at work trying to craft a course of action and an international coalition that will dissuade and/or prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons... So absent military action and the West’s acquiescence to a nuclear armed Iran, can Iran be deterred from proliferating nuclear weapons and associated technology? Can we be assured they won’t pass one to a proxy? The answer is no, at least as current US strategies are crafted..."

The Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 361 to 37. The Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act bans U.S. assistance to the Hamas-led Palestinian Authority, denies visas to its leaders and cuts off diplomatic contact with Hamas, which the U.S. has branded a terrorist organization. “I would question why anyone would vote against this bi-partisan stand against terrorism.

    The Thin Skinned CongressmanBy E. Goldstein(North Carolina) – It seems that Georgia Congressman Jim Marshall is a little peeved at me for publishing an excerpt from an editorial he wrote for the Atlanta Journal Constitution. When Robert Novak picked up on his quote he correctly reported that Marshall supports investigating the President at some time in the future. Novak made the mistake of reporting that Marshall had issued a statement to that effect, he had not. Marshall had just included the comments in a November editorial which can be read on his own congressional website. In his editorial Marshall wrote,...

    Robert Novak Political ReportGeorgia-3/8: This seat, re-numbered after the mid-decade redistricting of last year, is now in greater peril for Democrats than before. Rep. Jim Marshall (D) is tempting fate with his announcement that he favors investigations of the Bush Administration. Although few voters anywhere are big fans of Bush nowadays, they will not welcome this, and it will become campaign ammo for his opponent, former Rep. Mac Collins (R), who will try to link him to the growing impeachment movement on the left. Leaning Democratic Retention.

For that reason, we should expect that Iraq's leadership will direct that we modify our operations or withdraw -- just as soon as Iraqis have the institutional capacity to internally secure their country. Americans simply haven't the perspective to make that call.

    GA 8: Marshall, Collins Gear Up for Fight on Unfamiliar Turf Democratic Rep. Jim Marshall easily won a second term in 2004, trouncing the Republican who had nearly beaten him two years earlier. But Marshall is expected to face a much tougher contest this year. Marshall’s near-certain Republican opponent is former Republican Rep. Mac Collins (1993-2005), who is looking to rejoin Congress after he surrendered his House seat in 2004 to pursue a Senate campaign that failed in the GOP primary. Collins is expected to wage a more competitive campaign against Marshall than 2004 nominee Calder Clay, who lost by...

A press release from the diocese said: "If the resolution passes, and is approved by consecutive meetings of the Church's national convention, Episcopal churches will have the opportunity to celebrate May 17 as Marshall's feast day." On that date in 1954, Marshall, who was later to become the first black Supreme Court justice, won the Brown v. Board of Education school desegregation case. He...

    WALTHAM -- The chief justice of the state Supreme Judicial Court said yesterday that rhetoric about judges destroying the country and the suggestion that court decisions should conform to public opinion are threatening public trust in the judicial system, a cornerstone of democracy. Justice Margaret H.

Beginning Oct. 1, the airport will be known as Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. Republican Gov. Robert Ehrlich signed the bill as civil rights leaders and lawmakers looked on. "Our purpose is to honor a great mind who did the most to end legal segregation in America," said state Delegate Emmett Burns, a Baptist minister who introduced the bill.

Thurgood Marshall Baltimore-Washington International Airport -- the name proposed in legislation making its way through the Maryland General Assembly -- would, few dispute, appropriately honor one of Maryland's most revered sons. The change would cost the state at least $2.1 million, according to preliminary estimates.

    While news coverage tends to focus on developments in the White House and with Congress, most folks pay little or no attention to what happens on the Supreme Court. That's a shame, says constitutional scholar and former Reagan Justice Department official Mark Levin, since the Court wields so much unchecked power affecting the everyday lives of Americans, often in ways detrimental to the nation. Released today, Levin's new book "Men in Black" is nothing short of an indictment of the high court, detailing judicial abuses from its founding in 1801 right through modern day decisions on abortion and homosexual rights...

Marshall's contribution to the building of a free Europe was at least as great as Winston Churchill's, Jean Monnet's or Robert Schumann's. Pervading the event was the recognition that what flows from the U.S. -- which, with 5% of the world's population produces 25% of the world's wealth, and spends more on defense than the next nine nations combined -- is not raw power but an awareness of responsibility.</p>

    Hollings Stories Laud Racial Record, Skip Segregationist Work Washington Post and New York Times stories Tuesday, on the decision of South Carolina Senator Ernest Hollings to not seek re-election, lauded the Democrat for how, in contrast to what occurred in other Southern states, as Governor he had presided over “the peaceful” and “orderly desegregation” of South Carolina’s public schools. But in offering such a positive review of Hollings’ record on race, the newspapers skated over his role as a dogged defender of segregation who only gave in when he realized the fight was hopeless, a favor not afforded to Southern...
  • No, Sen. Santorum, Catholics aren’t a protected class

    No, Sen. Santorum, Catholics aren’t a protected classOkay, I think I get the idea. Republicans are very upset that Senate Democrats have held together enough to sideline three of President Bush’s most hard-line conservative judicial nominees. That unity anticipates similar steadfastness in the face of hard-line nominations to the Supreme Court if and when Bush gets the chance. And all that complaining about Democratic filibustering — whether justified or not — never caught on with voters. But that’s still no excuse for the ridiculous charges that Democrats are acting out of anti-Catholic bias or bigotry when opposing Alabama Attorney General...

    (Defense in advance: I'm an engineer, not a poli sci or other liberal arts graduate. Interest in things political, and historical, came late in life.) Reading Ann Coulter's book "Treason" this evening I came across the following (p.85) about the Marshall plan (which Marshall, it appears, did not support!): "The United States poured billions of dollars into Western Europe to jump-start their war-torn economies. By allowing non-Communist European nations to flourish, the Marshall Plan strengthened Western Europe, and immunized it from the allures of Soviet Communism." Once stated it's obvious. Even to me. But the question I have is (and...

    <p>When he was promoted to officer rank at eighteen, S. L. A. MARSHALL was the youngest shavetail in the United States Army during World War I. He rejoined the Army in 1942, became a combat historian with the rank of colonel; and the notes he made at the time of the Normandy landing are the source of this heroic reminder. Readers will remember his frank and ennobling book about Korea, THE RIVER AND THE GAUNTLET, which was the result of still a third tour of duty.</p>

    Peter Beinart, editor of The New Republic is my guest today, and I may be able to link up as well with Ralph Reed to discuss the retirement announcement by Zell Miller. (That announcement puts the GOP in the position of a huge, early advantage when it comes to the Senate races in 2004, which contributors will surely notice.) I will discuss with Peter the North Korean situation, hopefully more productively than I did with Josh Marshall of TalkingPointsMemo.com yesterday. Marshall, heir to Sidney Blumenthal's passion to defend the Clintons in all things at all costs, has taken to blaming...
  • Testing of Federal Air Marshalls - probing our 'defenses' - VANITY

    I recently had a conversation with a friend who is a federal air marshall. I was discussing with her the first flight I had taken since 9/11. The flight was to Chicago and several things occurred which really bothered me. I had taken notice, in my paranoia, that the plane had 7 or 8 Arab-looking men. One of the men had his family with him. During the flight from Houston to Chicago I observed that several of these men got up more than once. The man with his family kept having to get up to let them in and out...

    HUNTINGTON, W.Va. -- An assistant coach for Miami of Ohio was released on bail Wednesday after he was led off the field in handcuffs and charged with shoving a fan celebrating Marshall's last-second win. Defensive coordinator Jon Wauford was charged with battery, a misdemeanor. Robert Flaugher, a 36-year-old fan from Pickerington, Ohio, was treated and released from St. Mary's Medical Center early Wednesday, spokesman Dan Londeree said. Flaugher was among thousands of Marshall fans who stormed the field moments after quarterback Stan Hill scored on a 1-yard run with 5 seconds left to give the Thundering Herd a 36-34 victory...

    Clay, Marshall release dueling polls By Don Schanche Jr. Telegraph Staff Writer As Calder Clay III's pollster sees it, GOP candidate Clay is within 7 percentage points of catching up to his Democratic rival Jim Marshall in the race for the 3rd Congressional District seat. But Marshall's own pollster says Marshall has a 17-point lead over Clay. Less than three weeks from the Nov. 5 general election, both campaigns offered a glimpse of what their strategists know or believe about the likely behavior of likely voters. It began Wednesday morning when Clay's campaign released the cover letter to a poll...
