    According to a congressman's wife who attended a Republican women's luncheon yesterday, Karl Rove explained the rationale behind the president's amnesty/open-borders proposal this way: "I don't want my 17-year-old son to have to pick tomatoes or make beds in Las Vegas." There should be no need to explain why this is an obscene statement coming from a leader in the party that promotes the virtues of hard work, thrift, and sobriety, a party whose demi-god actually split fence rails as a young man, a party where "respectable Republican cloth coat" once actually meant something. But it does seem to be...

    ( - Weeks after accusing President Bush of "shameful" behavior over the imprisonment of two Border Patrol agents who shot an unarmed suspected drug smuggler along the U.S.-Mexico border, a federal lawmaker turned up the heat further Wednesday, suggesting the president should be impeached if either of the two men is murdered in prison.

    “Murder and graffiti are two vastly different crimes,” Rudy Giuliani once said. “But they are part of the same continuum, and a climate that tolerates one is more likely to tolerate the other.” Good point, Rudy. Now, what about a climate — not to mention a Republican presidential candidate — that not only tolerates, but allows unelected judges to legalize the practice of delivering a child until only its head remains within its mothers womb so the child can be killed by sucking out its brains? What about a climate where same-sex couples are given the same legal status as...

    Bush to Welcome 10,000 Saudi Students to American Schools --Foreign Student Visas, Easy Avenue for Terrorists Entry to US Directly following the monstrous attacks of 9/11, the US government took a step back from the routinely lightly vetted approvals for student visa applications, especially from Saudi Arabia. Previous to 9/11, Saudi citizens were also offered quick entry to the USA with a policy called "visa express" where their applications routinely escaped close scrutiny and were easily rubber stamped ahead. Three of the 9/11 hijackers took advantage of this easy access. After 9/11/01 the quick visa approval slowed. It was also...

    Victory has a thousand fathers, but defeat is an orphan, said a rueful John F. Kennedy after the Bay of Pigs. George W. Bush knows today whereof his predecessor spoke. For as he prepares to "surge" 20,000 more U.S. troops into a war even he concedes we "are not winning," his erstwhile acolytes have begun to abandon him to salvage their own tattered reputations. Case in point, the neoconservatives. As the Iraq war heads into its fifth year, more than half a dozen have confessed to Vanity Fair's David Rose their abject despair over how the Bushites mismanaged the war...

    "Are there even any real conservatives left in America?" recently asked the one eager for knowledge. "There are," responded the wise man, "but they are often called paleoconservatives." What are paleoconservatives? Well, as Russell Kirk once said, they are the only real conservatives left in America. The whole "conservative movement" has moved so far to the Left, or rather has been "neoconned," that many so-called conservatives are "conservative" in name only. What do paleoconservatives believe? Like mainstream conservatives, paleos are often religious, or at least reverent of religion. They are opposed to secularism, opposed to "gay marriage," opposed to the...

This is a man who won a very good election. I'm proud of the Mexican people for conducting an election that is -- was open and honest. We've spent a lot of time talking about vital issues. I have made it very clear to the President-elect that Mexico is a priority of this administration. I know a fair amount about Mexico; after all, I was the governor of Texas. I assured...

    Okay history fans, if Bush is to be compared to Lincoln then maybe he ought to do what the embattled Lincoln did to first War Secretary Simon Cameron in 1862 when his Congress was under fire: Accept Rumsfeld's resignation. Supposedly, the Don of the Pentagon offered it on two occasions, according to the source himself and it is apparent that a change in the tactics of fighting a losing war are now needed. Rumsfeld went against the advice of sound judgement from generals such as Shenseki and others who urged him to invade with at least as many boots on...

    U.S. President George W. Bush met with Muslim leaders living in the United States and a group of diplomatic representatives from Muslim countries on Tuesday for a Ramadan fast-breaking dinner, known as iftar, at the White House. Bush started his iftar speech with the traditional Ramadan greeting of “Ramadan Karim” when he praised Islam as a religion that brought hope and peace to more than a billion people worldwide. “You know that the majority of the victims of the terrorists have been innocent Muslims, and many of you have seen terrorist violence in your own cities and your streets,” Bush...

"Fox News Channel told Move America Forward that they had decided under no circumstances would they allow the organization to broadcast the ad," Debra Argel Bastian, the group's military outreach coordinator, said.

    Rudy Giuliani, a contender for the presidency in 2008, is receiving an inordinate amount of positive attention. That's quite understandable since Rudy is charismatic, did a great job on the campaign trail for President Bush in 2004, and his phenomenal performance after 9/11 was much appreciated. However, likeable or not, having Rudy as the GOP's candidate in 2008 would be a big mistake. Here's a short, but sweet primer on some of Rudy's many flaws. Rudy's Strong Pro-Abortion Stance As these comments from a 1989 conversation with Phil Donahue show, Rudy Giuliani is staunchly in favor of abortion: "I've said...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-CO), Chairman of the 104-Member House Immigration Reform Caucus, condemned the White House’s plan to actively campaign against the House’s strong stand on border security leading up to the midterm elections. National Journal’s Congress Daily reported this morning, “President Bush and top deputies will wage an aggressive campaign in coming weeks to sell their comprehensive approach to immigration, trying to overcome the stubborn resistance of House Republicans who want to address only border security.” Administration officials said that they are trying to get invitations to the House’s summer field hearings on immigration to “rebut[]...

    Presidential press secretary Tony Snow today defended his boss' level of commitment to border security, saying President Bush is "cognizant" of the fact terrorists may be entering the U.S. illegally. "The president has made his views on border security well-known," WND told the spokesman, "and my question: Would the president make border security a higher priority if he were convinced it was being used as an entry point by terrorists like those who are part of Hezbollah and al-Qaida?" Responded Snow: "Think of it this way. The president committed as much money to the borders already as the House of...

    Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice should stay home if her mission is to go to the Middle East in an attempt to tell Israel to stop the war against Hezbollah. President Bush's message that Israel should use "restraint" in dealing with Hezbollah is equally off the mark. In his first term, President Bush understood the use of pre-emptive war as a necessary national security strategy designed to deal effectively with terrorists. Would President Bush refrain from going to war if Hezbollah sleeper cells launched a terrorist attack in the United States? Hezbollah committed an act of war when terrorists crossed...

    Bush says Muslim welcome to head UN (AFP) 11 July 2006 WASHINGTON - US President George W. Bush said he did not oppose the idea of a Muslim being the next UN Secretary General as long as they were willing to “blow the whistle” on human rights abuses. At the same time, he told a small group of reporters on Monday, two days before leaving for Germany and a group summit in Russia, ”we’re really looking in the Far East right now” to find a successor to UN chief Kofi Annan. But asked whether he would oppose a Muslim in...

    White House political strategist Karl Rove said Tuesday that the highly charged immigration debate has "clouded" the views of some Americans, leading them to dismiss the importance of immigrants and their contribution to the nation's success. "Everything that this country is, everything that we have achieved, everything that we hold, everything that we promise, is because we are a nation of diversity, brought together by immigration, and sharing a common dream," Rove told members of the nation's largest Hispanic civil rights group, the National Council of La Raza. Rove ticked off enforcement elements of the president's proposal, but added, "All...

    Bush's disconnect on illegal immigration -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Posted: July 10, 2006 1:00 a.m. Eastern © 2006 "We cannot kick people out who have been here for awhile." That's what President Bush said last week. And he means it. That is his policy toward those who have broken into our country, defied our immigration laws, cheapened our way of life and driven a stake through the heart of what it means to be an American. This is amnesty, no matter what the president says. If we "can't kick people out who have been here for awhile," then we have no alternative...
