    The Hill ^ | June 8, 2012 | Julian Pecquet
    Donald Rumsfeld is returning to Capitol Hill next week to testify against the United States joining the United Nations's Law of the Sea treaty, pitting him squarely against the military brass that he used to command as former President George W. Bush's secretary of Defense. Rumsfeld's testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee is especially relevant because he was former President Reagan's emissary against the treaty back in 1982, when international momentum was for it. Proponents of the treaty have been trotting out former Reagan officials — former Secretary of State George Shultz, former Deputy National Security Adviser John Negroponte...
  • Meese: Obama Administration 'as Close to a Monarchy as Since Days Of George III'

    Former Attorney General Ed Meese says the Obama administration’s “disdain for Congress” and its efforts to consolidate power within the executive branch through the use of “czars” makes it “as close to a monarchy as since the days of George III.” “In what was purported to be the most transparent and the most law abiding administration in history, as the president said when he was inaugurated, has now sunk into the least transparent and the most disdainful of the Constitution as we’ve ever seen,” Meese said during a panel discussion Tuesday sponsored by the American Action Network

    There is arguably no more influential conservative in America today than former Reagan Attorney General Edwin Meese. To paraphrase an old marketing slogan, when Ed Meese talks, people listen. Rarely has such attention been more warranted than now, as President Obama prepares to select a new Supreme Court nominee whose views on national security and the law may have enormous bearing on the prospects for our victory in this War for the Free World. After all, as Gen. Meese observed in a major policy address before an American Bar Association audience last Thursday: “In four major cases, the Supreme Court...

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (Legal Newsline)-Frivolous lawsuits filed by the nation's trial lawyers are a drain on the economy, former U.S. Attorney General Edwin Meese III said Thursday night. Meese, who served in Ronald Reagan's California gubernatorial and U.S. presidential administrations, said lawsuit abuse is a "silent drain on the economy" and "a stealth threat to businesses and consumers."
  • Obama’s Version of Cold War ‘Simply Untrue,’ Says Reagan Attorney General Ed Meese

    Edwin Meese III, former U.S. attorney general and adviser to President Ronald Reagan, says he disagrees with President Barack Obama's recent explanation of the way the Cold War ended. In his address at the New Economic School in Moscow earlier this month, Obama told students that the war had not been won by either side. “Make no mistake: this change did not come from any one nation alone,” he said. “The Cold War reached a conclusion because of the actions of many nations over many years, and because the people of Russia and Eastern Europe stood up and decided that...

    Would Rudy Be Good for the Courts? Well, Meese was good for the courts, and Giuliani didn’t think much of him. By Robert Alt After a disappointing performance in the first Republican presidential debate, Rudy Giuliani walked away from last night’s debate as the clear winner. Not only did he play to his strengths, reclaiming the mantle of America’s mayor by shaming Ron Paul for his “blame America first” comments, but he finally appears to have settled on a more politically palatable answer to the abortion question by emphasizing a reduction in the frequency of abortions. (An answer which, by...

    May 16, 2007 The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea: The Risks Outweigh the Benefits by Edwin Meese, III, Baker Spring and Brett D. Schaefer WebMemo #1459 The Bush Administration has renewed its 2004 request that the Senate ratify the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). While UNCLOS contains provisions that would be marginally beneficial to the U.S. Navy, other provisions of the treaty, such as those regarding the settlement of disputes, royalties on the exploitation of resources on the deep seabed, and the empowering of an additional U.N.-affiliated international bureaucracy, pose far...

    Moose warnings ineffective You can see them all over Norway, those ubiquitous, triangular signs warning that moose may try to cross the road. They're popular with tourists, but studies show they don't help much to reduce collisions. "All these moose signs," sighs Bjørn Iuell of the national highway department called Statens vegvesen. "They don't work at all." Iuell should know. He spends most of his time tracking the risks for collisions between motorists and wildlife, and how to reduce them. Iuell told Aftenposten's weekend magazine A-Magasinet that research shows that motorists neither reduce their speed nor change their driving pattern...

    A moose chase that began in Stamford yesterday morning came to a tragic end when the animal collided head-on with a car on the Merritt Parkway. Advertisement The driver, a 51-year-old New Hampshire woman driving alone, was rushed to Norwalk Hospital shortly after the accident at 3:48 p.m., according to state police on the scene and the state Department of Environmental Protection. The driver was responsive when rescuers pulled her from the Subaru Impreza wagon, said state police Sgt. Ron Nihill, the public information officer for Troop G in Bridgeport. The extent of her injuries was unknown last night. Police...

    Small mirrors hung alongside a major highway in Oppland County are proving highly effective at keeping wildlife off the road and preventing accidents. Moose aren't the only animals being spared. Moose wander onto roadways in Norway much too often, as do other forms of wildlife. The use of mirrors has been so successful at eliminating collisions between animals and cars, reported newspaper Adresseavisen this week, that the national railroad agency Jernbaneverket is interested in adopting the practice to keep wildlife off train tracks. The mirror idea came from Mentz Skjetne, who drives emergency vehicles himself and knows the financial, human...

    The following speech was delivered on November 30, 2006. Our topic is "Can We Rebuild the Reagan Coali­tion?" The short answer is yes. It is possible if we look at how the Reagan coalition was built and the lessons that he taught us on how to put together and sustain a coalition over the years and then use that coalition to accomplish something important. That's certainly what he did. Particularly since President Reagan passed away two years ago, I'm often asked by people, "What was he really like?" I would have to say -- something that I think is a...

    Moose couldn't survive dramatic rescue operation Two 12-year-old boys out making ski tracks over the weekend ended up freeing a young moose that had gotten itself stuck in ice on a river. The stricken moose, however, failed to survive its ordeal. These boys spent Sunday afternoon trying to rescue a young moose from an icy death.

    This is the fifth in an occasional series of exclusive articles in which leading conservatives who served in the Reagan Administration explain how they believe the principles of Reagan conservatism ought to be applied today and in the coming years. This week, Edwin Meese, who was Reagan’s first presidential counselor and then attorney general, addresses immigration. What would Ronald Reagan do? I can’t tell you how many times I have been asked that question, on virtually every issue imaginable. As much as we all want clarity and certainty, I usually refrain from specific answers. That’s because it is very difficult...

I think she's been sipping too much schnapps and told her so. Am I out on a limb here? A: Way out, and not that you probably care about this, but that sound you hear is wood cracking. It's very possible your mom saw a moose because, according to officials with the joint Idaho/Washington Alarming Moose Statistics Information Bureau, moose numbers have "exploded" through...

    State wildlife biologists are hoping an aggressive moose hunt this season will help cut in half the number of animals in the Northeast Kingdom where the population has far exceeded the ability of the land to provide for them and moose conflicts with people are increasing, officials say. The season is off to a good start. After the first two days, the number of animals reported killed statewide exceeded the number taken during the same period last year by about 40 percent. "The hunters seem pretty happy about that," said Forrest Hammond, a wildlife biologist with the Vermont Department of...

    "We got 70 phone calls from people who were afraid of the moose. Because there were several of them. At least three moose had strayed into the city. Unfortunately one of these had to be put down by the wildlife committee, near the Skien Library," operation leader Åge Halvorsen of the Telemark police told news agency NTB. "It's unusual for three moose to be downtown at the same time," Helge Røssaker told newspaper Varden after felling the moose. "It is important that people keep their dogs leashed, you can't be reminded of that often enough. And a moose in the...

Arne Foss found out he was not the only one up early."Less than 30 meters (100 feet) away from me, in the private day care centre next door, there were four moose, one adult female, two yearlings and a two-year old. They wandered calmly down the street. Then the cow went all the way up the neighbor's...

    Swedish family is being plagued by a fairly common Norwegian problem, the drunken moose. Laila von Scheele no longer dares let her children out of the house, for fear of an unfortunate encounter with the plastered visitor that frequents their garden. "I am terrified. It can be dangerous when it's drunk," von Scheele told Swedish newspaper Expressen. The last five nights in a row the same moose has entered their property in Ekerö, west of Stockholm. It helps itself to the fallen fruit from the family's ten apple trees. As frequently is the case in Norway, the decomposing fruit have...
