Pelosi's first smart move

House Speaker-elect Nancy Pelosi has decided that impeached judge Alcee Hastings isn't the person to chair the House Intelligence Committee. For those interested on some more background on Hastings, check out this report by National Review's Byron York on the impeachment inquiry led by Democrat Rep. John Conyers.

The (impeached) judge

When it became apparent that the Democrats had taken control of the House after this month's election, Democrat leader Nancy Pelosi stood in front of the cameras pledged to make this next Congress "the most honest, ethical, and open Congress in history." The "honest, ethical" formulation was last uttered by President-elect Bill Clinton, who then […]

The border fence

Earlier this week President Bush signed the Secure Fence Act which would build 700 miles of fence along the U.S.-Mexico border. In response, Mexican President Vicente Fox said: It is an embarrassment for Mexico. The fact that our northern neighbor has to build a fence to try to keep our people out is a sign […]

Because the American people are stupid

Yep, that's what this whole New York Times disclosure of the Terrorist Finance Tracking Program is all about -- the stupidity of the American people. Today's San Diego Union-Tribune editorial page boldly steps forward and defends the the Times' disclosure of the program because -- well, apparently because journalists have to stick together. The Times […]

Cut and run

It really should come as no surprise that to many Democrats Iraq is little different than Vietnam. Sen. John Kerry, demonstrating that his "plan" for Iraq when he ran for president in 2004 was nothing of the sort, earlier this week joined the Democrats' cut-and-run caucus. Kerry, who voted to give President Bush authorization to […]

Look at the good side

Today's ruling by the European Court of Justice to bar airlines operating from Europe to the United States from disclosing their passenger lists to the Department of Homeland Security may mean that we'll have fewer snooty French tourists to deal with. Europe's highest court struck down an anti-terrorism agreement that allows the European Union and […]

You're kidding me, right?

Mexico is threatening to file lawsuits in U.S. courts if the National Guard does any law enforcement-type duties. I'm sorry, but this is mad. I understand that the President can't nationalize the National Guard and then put them to work doing law enforcement duties domestically because of the Posse Comitatus Act. However, the Mexican government […]

Brief thoughts on immigration

I watched the president's speech last night and was moderately unimpressed. We'll see shortly if the government -- including the congress -- is really serious about staunching the flow of illegal immigrants. Like they say in Missouri, show me. I was happy to hear that the so-called practice of catch-and-release would be coming to an […]

We know that to be inaccurate

I'm going to take issue with one line in today's Union-Tribune editorial on the NSA phone database. Earlier this year, when it was disclosed that the NSA was intercepting calls to and from foreign countries, the president told the nation that the program did not cover calls within the United States. We now know that […]

House Democrat conspires to boost Bush ratings

It looks like at least one, unnamed House Democrat will be making an effort to turn the public's focus once again on the NSA surveillance program if Air Force Gen. Michael Hayden is named to succeed Porter Goss at the CIA. According to Time magazine, the anonymous Dem (and there's no reason given for granting […]
