    One of the fiercest gun-control advocates in Congress, Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.), pounced on the shooting massacre in Tucson Sunday, promising to introduce legislation as soon as Monday targeting the high-capacity ammunition the gunman used.

    Complete title: EPA To Require Power Plants and Refineries To Use Pollution-Reduction Technologies To Trim Greenhouse Gas Emissions (CNSNews.com) -- 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. Also, the American Petroleum Institute criticized the EPA's action...
  • 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?
  • Safe Republican Candidates Earn Cred Giving To GOP Contenders

    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...

    Our 9/11 war dead are not “shaheeds”October 27, 2010 3:40 P.M. By Andy McCarthy   Out of respect for our men and women in harm’s way, I have tried, since an exchange late last year with Pete Hegseth, to pipe down about our increasingly dubious overseas contingency operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. I have often enough repeated my reservations about them, and my purpose is not to belabor that here. Nevertheless, I am constrained to react to a post by Max Boot at Contentions.Mr. Boot wrote to dispute Fouad Ajami’s Wall Street Journal essay, which expresses deep misgivings about about the...
  • Fran Becker Poised for a Win (NY-4)

    Political Blog ^ | October 26, 2010 | Raquel Okyay
    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. On September 20 the National Republican Congressional Committee announced Fran...

  • More Lowry Silliness

    10/13/2010 7:52:53 AM PDT · by eliperl · 3 replies
    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. As The Daily News' Ben Lesser reported last month: "McCarthy got thousands of dollars in campaign checks from a lobbyist and his son who've since been charged with funneling illegal cash to politicians. At the same time the money was pouring in, McCarthy sponsored millions of taxpayer dollars in congressional...

    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...

    For his Labor Day weekend trick, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka leveled the charge of McCarthyism at former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. 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...

    Loyal to Liberty ^ | August 23, 2010 | Alan Keyes
    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...

    Non-Muslims are barred from entering the cities of Mecca and Medina — not merely barred from building synagogues or churches, but barred, period, because their infidel feet are deemed unfit to touch the ground. This is not an al-Qaeda principle. Nor is it an “Islamist” principle. It is Islam, pure and simple.

    The 2010 midterms have not happened yet, but the 2012 campaign is under way. For that we can thank Newt Gingrich. Not because Gingrich is a candidate, though he almost certainly is. 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. For one thing, he refuses to...

    "They couldn’t have been spies, look what she did with the hydrangeas." Jessie Gugig, age 15 The FBI ended a seven year investigation with the arrest of ten people in Yonkers, Boston and northern Virginia suspected of being part of a Russian espionage ring. The spies lived in deep cover, assuming false identities with the intention of penetrating American “policy making circles”. Mocking our immigration policies, the SVR, successor to the KGB, code named the program “The Illegals”. Substituting high tech communications for the now passé Venona cables , the operatives managed to gain access to a government employee working...

    Glenn Beck has beseeched us not to compare him to McCarthy. He accused Anthony Weiner of using Joe McCarthy “tactics” when Weiner launched his unsuccessful and short lived smear campaign against Beck’s sponsor, Goldline. Beck, like too many commentators who ought to know better, has long spewed the entirely false narrative about Senator Joe McCarthy. Until his recent McCarthy Awakening. Liberals have been embarrassing themselves for decades with this McCarthy business. Point out an unsavory association, and they squeal like stuck pigs about the scourge of McCarthyism.

    Andy McCarthy is no conspiracy theorist, but that doesn't keep him from recognizing and warning us about the common goals of the Islamists and the hard left, both of whom pose a serious, active threat to America's freedom. 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...
