Ask and ye shall receive

Well, last week when President Bush resubmitted the name of Judge Charles Pickering to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, the cries of racist erupted from the Democrats. Their charge was mainly based on a 1994 cross burning case where Pickering sought a lighter sentence for a convicted cross burner because his cohorts -- including one who was definitely more culpable than the rest -- got off with zero jail time. The government sought a 7 1/2 year sentence for the cross burner. And the ringleader got off with nothing.

My question was: What happened with the Clinton Justice Department that was so soft on racism that they gave the ringleader no jail time?

Thankfully, National Review's Byron York has dug up the answer. The short version: They screwed up.

I'm also watching my tape of today's "Special Report with Brit Hume." Hume interviewed York on this very subject and brought up this very issue. Finally, this aspect of the issue gets out in the mainstream media.

And you read it here first.


In a just world, SB 918 and its New York counterpart would make the Supreme Court* say: "well, we tried to let you keep shall issue, but you morons just couldn't help yourselves, so now constitutional carry is the law of the land".

*Hopefully it doesn't need to go to SCOTUS.

New talking points just dropped in WaPo -- if that's the excuse for the raid, how does the FBI also justify letting Clinton skate when she also had docs "classified at the highest classification level"?

The most dramatic consequences of government intervention occurred in Sri Lanka, where a 2021 fertilizer ban led to a massive reduction in yields, sparking starvation and an economic crisis that brought down the government in July.
