    Complete title: EPA To Require Power Plants and Refineries To Use Pollution-Reduction Technologies To Trim Greenhouse Gas Emissions ( -- The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced that to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the United States, it will decide which pollution-reduction technologies work best for power plants and refineries and will then set regulations over the next two years that require those industries to implement similar pollution-reduction technologies.However, the EPA acknowledged that it does not yet know how much greenhouse gas emissions will be reduced through its new regulatory plan.

  • Pete King's plan to grill Muslims is flashback to Joe McCarthy's Hollywood witch hunt

    Rep. Pete King's proposal to hold hearings on the "radicalization" of American Muslims is something straight out of the Bad Ideas Department. Make that the Worst Ideas Department. Just substitute the word "movie" for "Muslim" and you've got McCarthyism. As in Sen. Joe, who called in actors from Lucille Ball to Judy Holliday simply because they had had naughty liberal thoughts. McCarthy found nothing on Holliday, but ruined her life and scores of others in Hollywood. What's next, internment camps?

    Call it being a team player. If you’re a Republican House candidate flush with cash and poised to win, you can score points with leadership if you donate to competitive races. That cred could lead to good committee assignments down the line. Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) followed that model in 2006 and ended up with a prime spot in leadership. Now he’s advising candidates from South Carolina to Missouri to do the same, even suggesting which contenders are most in need of funds for new ads. In a great year for their party, some House Republican challengers are doing more...

    According to a Daily News report, Republican Fran Becker, candidate for U.S. Congress, is “surging” in the polls to unseat 7- term incumbent Democrat Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (NY-4). No surprise here. As Congresswoman, McCarthy has proven to be a spokesperson for the Obama, Pelosi agenda; whereas, as Nassau County Legislator, Fran Becker has proven to be a spokesperson for Nassau County. Less than two months ago, the Cook Political Report found District 4 a “solid” win for McCarthy in the November 2 election, today has the race within six points.

    More Lowry Silliness Rich Lowry should read some history before he comments on it. In his column today he tries to make the self evident point that Obama's politics are gutter politics (there's a real shocker.) He says "...when he (Obama) reflects on his closing arguments during this campaign he'll tell himself, "I'm McCarthy baby. I can play in the gutter." Lowry's appraisal of the stench of Obama's methods is of course correct, but why must he use liberal mythology, provably false, to compare it to? Is Lowry, or for that matter the whole Sarah Palin bashing, John McCain endorsing...

    Internal Poll Says Rep. Carolyn McCarthy's Got A Fight On Her Hands: Updated » By Celeste Katz Voters' favorable views of seven-term NY-4 Rep. Carolyn McCarthy have tumbled between June and October, according to an internal poll which suggests she'll have to work hard to defeat GOP challenger Fran Becker.

    With Congress back this week, Republicans need to get tough on taxes. That is, if the GOP hopes to prosper in November, party leaders need to get unambiguously with the American people -- and against the Obama administration -- in opposing tax increases. That is to say, they need to protect the soon-to-expire Bush-era tax cuts. Some are already there. Making the case forcefully are House Minority Whip Eric Cantor of Virginia, Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California and Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin. The three have co-authored "Young Guns," a policy prescription recalling the GOP's "Contract With America" -- which...

    Terry Jones, the Florida "minister" who threatened to burn the Koran on the anniversary of September 11, is as much a distraction from the real challenge facing America as was Senator Joseph McCarthy when it came to communism. Communism was (and remains in its Chinese incarnation) a real threat. But radical Islam -- rabid, advancing, intolerant, subjugating -- is potentially a bigger one and must be conquered. Various apologists for the Nazis and communists in the media, academia and religion are now mostly forgotten and that's the problem. Forgetting what happens when evil is accommodated leads to terrible consequences and...

This is a bit rich from a guy with blood on his hands -- and I don't say that figuratively, either. At a September 2 meeting sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor, Trumka claimed that "Palinism" was the "new McCarthyism" and warned that if she kept up her rhetoric she would be guilty of inciting her followers. "She can't use loose language that foments... that anger to hatred, or that action to violence," Trumka said... Read the rest at...

    The title of this post obviously alludes to Herman Kahn’s book, Thinking About the Unthinkable . Kahn is famous for his contributions to strategic thought at the onset of the age of thermonuclear war. With the G-string concealed bias one comes to expect there, the Wikipedia article about him suggests that his influence contributed to “the fallout shelters, evacuation scenarios, and civil defense drills now seen as emblematic of the paranoid 1950s”. Paranoia implies an irrational sense of threat and persecution. Yet given mid-twentieth century realities, the real madness (or is it wickedly calculated deception?) appears evident in the left’s...

And not because he can win, because that is by no means certain. We should thank Gingrich because he has crystallized the essence of our national-security challenge. Henceforth, there should be no place to hide for any candidate, including any incumbent. The question will be: Where do you stand on sharia? The former speaker of the House gets the war on terror.

In his book "The Grand Jihad: How Islam and the Left Sabotage America," McCarthy, the prosecutor of the Blind Sheik and a tough-minded realist, exposes the connection between the two groups and the danger they represent to most everything we hold sacred. This is not another book on the dangers of Islamic terrorism, but a wake-up call to Americans who might be...

That the History Channel's "Beltway Unbuckled" would yield new information about FDR, then, is illustrative of how media selectively protects the image of patron Liberals, while targeting what were once called mainstream Americans.

    McCarthy points out Reid was just one of many attacks we saw. Allowing Richard Reid to remain silent did nothing to prevent Flight 253. Instead of making that same mistake, President Bush had thousands of terrorists interrogated and dozens of attacks were prevented; not affording Constitutional rights to terrorists (besides Reid) prevented those attacks. Initially repeating a past mistake with Abdulmuttalab is not mitigated by the fact President Bush "did it" eight years earlier. McCarthy went on to write: That brings us to a third point Democrats would prefer to forget: “The Wall,” the internal regulations adopted by the Clinton...

"This will be a national election." To regain control of the House of Representatives, Republicans must pick up 41 seats. If they win big in the House next year, it will be at least partly because the party put McCarthy in charge of its recruiting efforts. It's the latest high-profile assignment for McCarthy, who...

    Our topic this week concerns enemy tactics against the United States and the urgent necessity to fight back. The occasion is the re-release of Blacklisted by History. Therein, author M. Stanton Evans — whose focus is Senator Joseph McCarthy — gives us a fascinating tutorial on the Soviet effort to undermine our country before, during, and after the "McCarthy era," and some lessons that can be learned as today we face an alliance of the hard left and the Islamofascist threat. At a private discussion late last year, the topic of internal security arose with a focus on the "political...

    NEW YORK, DECEMBER 5, 2009 — Several thousand protesters gathered at Foley Square in New York City to rally against Attorney General Eric Holder’s decision to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammad and 4 other 9/11 co-conspirators as civilians in federal court. Despite bitter cold, strong winds and heavy rain the crowd stayed through the 2-hour rally. The event was organized by the 9/11 Coalition to Never Forget and featured speakers representing 9/11 family members, first responders and our troops. See our full post-rally press release, plus videos, photograph and links to local and national news reports here at 911NeverForget.Us.

    National Review Online ^ | December 2, 2009 | Andrew C. McCarthy
    There is a lesson here. KSM & Co. do not have to be brought to the United States — a move that would make it significantly more likely that other Gitmo detainees, trained terrorists, would be transferred here. Similarly, KSM & Co. do not have to be given a civilian trial — a move that would make it far more difficult to justify military commissions for lesser terrorists. This is not a fait accompli. It is still possible to block these developments and to induce the Obama administration to reverse itself. But doing so will require the same two things...
  • Ex-foes Gillibrand, McCarthy team on gun bill

    Newsday ^ | November 24, 2009 | MATTHEW CHAYES Quick Summary Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and her former ardent foe, Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-Mineola), announced they were teaming up to sponsor legislation to combat gun trafficking. Talk about a thaw. In the latest example of politics making for the unlikeliest bedfellows, hugs, mutual praise and chitchat punctuated a news conference between Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, a former darling of the National Rifle Association, and her former ardent foe, Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-Mineola), the stridently pro-gun-control congresswoman whose husband was killed in the mass shooting aboard the Long Island Rail Road. Earlier this year, McCarthy had threatened to derail Gillibrand's upcoming...
  • Andrew McCarthy on federal 9/11 trials: ’struggle we’re in is a war, not a crime wave’

    Syndicated talk-radio host Mark Levin spoke with former Assistant United States Attorney Andrew McCarthy this evening about AG Eric Holder's decision to prosecute 9/11’s conspirators, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four lieutenants, in federal court a mere 6 blocks from Ground Zero. "The Cole bombing did not prompt a military war against al-Qaeda. It eventually resulted in a civilian indictment that is still pending. The Pentagon is the ultimate military target, and the attack against it spurred both the war we are now fighting and the implementation of military commissions to try jihadist war criminals. Yet, Holder has decided to give...
  • McCarthy was right, and my life proves it.

    On the day I born, June 9th, 1954, Senator Joseph McCarthy was asked the famous question; “Have you no sense of decency sir?”. Some members of the media who saw an opening, pounced on the opportunity, and never looked back. This would become the beginning of the end of the anti-communist mood in America. It would be the birth of terms like McCarthyism, Redbaiting, and Blacklisting. The heirs of this movement are much more numerous today than in 1954, and the true journalists have been replaced by mere actors, playing the part of journalists. We have gone from a nation...
  • ACORN Charges Republican McCarthyism

    ACORN CEO Bertha Lewis yesterday blamed the Bush administration for the organization’s woes and accused Republicans of “ACORN McCarthyism.” Lewis blamed Karl Rove for instigating the legal troubles the “community organizers” are facing. At this point, reports of ACORN illegal conduct have sparked a string of criminal investigations nationwide on charges of fraudulent voter registration activities.  Most recently, two young journalists caught ACORN staffers in a sting operation exposing tax and sex trafficking advice.  Both houses of congress have passed measures to de-fund the organization, Lewis was hosted by the National Press Club at a “Newsmaker” event yesterday where she...

    Every Sunday, after church, the 7-year-old boy would escape to Grandpa's basement. He'd never seen such a room -- trophies and game balls and jerseys and photos and videotapes, all at his disposal. He'd heard about a place called heaven, a magical place they raved about in Bible school, and he decided this had to be it. It had to be. Because his father was here. One of those trophies … his daddy won. One of those game balls … his daddy earned. One of those jerseys … his daddy wore. One of those photos … his daddy's face. Stacks...
  • BRINGING BACK THE HUAC. thoughts? ideas?

    Without being labled as "on a witch-hunt", or having the tables turned on us, could we initiate a resurrection of the HUAC? This was the House Un-American Activities Committee that operated from 1938-1975 as an investigative committee into Communist or generally un-American persons or groups in the US. There was also the Fish Committee of 1930 that was hitting the ACLU pretty hard at the time. Also the Dies Committee, which focused on Nazi influence in America. Surprisingly, many of these groups were started by prominent Democrats at the time. Ironically, prominent Democrats of today, would be some of the...
  • Killing Obamacare

    National Review ^ | 8/21/2009 | Andrew C. McCarthy
    Earlier this week, some of my National Review colleagues recoiled from Sarah Palin’s bracing allegation that Obamacare would foist government “death panels” on vulnerable Americans. I recoiled from the recoil, which I thought exemplified the same sort of “hysteria” the editorial in question, “Rationing and Rationality,” condemned. There followed a debate (see The Corner archives for August 17 and 18), largely a fine parsing of how — rationally, of course — the term “death panel” ought to be defined. As we went back and forth, I kept having this nagging thought: We could still blow this thing. (snip)Things may appear...

    McCarthy on Pelosi, the NY Times and the German National Socialists August 14, 2009 BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Are there any hate groups on the left? There are, right? Are they ever the subject of network news reports? Has Brian "The Repeater" Ross ever gone out there and done a report on left-wing hate groups? No! In fact, when we hear about left-wing hate groups and their work, we're supposed to marvel at the art. It may be offensive but we're supposed to marvel at the art. Southern Poverty Law Center, do you know how much these people are worth?...
