WMD Smoking Guns

Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld revealed that coalition soldiers from Poland have discoverd WMDs in Iraq. Bet you won’t hear it on television news, though. So read the source. RUMSFELD: Now what’s actually happened?  Right now you have the Iraqi Survey Group, which is a multinational group that’s out there reviewing documentation and looking at…

Garry Wills on Abortion and the Catholic Church

Here’s something worth reading and pondering. Hat tip to Professor Bainbridge. Too many Christians rely on the writings of modern scholars who, 200 years from now, may or may not be valid. We just don’t know. We do know, however, that Augustine and Aquinas remain valid. Trust the ancients for they have withstood the test…

The Seething Hatred of Maureen Dowd

In today’s New York Times, Maureen Dowd–as rotten a human being as she is a writer–rips George Bush for writing “Let Freedom Reign,” instead of “ring” on a note announcing the control of Iraq had been passed to Iraqi’s governing council. Maureen Dowd must be a joy. I hope I never meet her. Virtually the…

Something Big?

Do you get the feeling that something–really big–is about to happen? I do. Something tells me it will be something good and big. Capture bin Laden? Maybe, but I think that would be anticlimactic at this point. As the 9/11 Commission reported June 6, the US war on terror has all but crippled Al Qaeda’s…

Hillary Promises Dems Will Take What’s Yours

Yeah, we were all on pins and needles, weren’t we? Speaking in San Francisco, CA, the New York Senator affirmed the most basic belief of liberalism: educated elites know better what’s good for you than you do, and they will use the full power of the US government to force you to comply with their…

Gasoline & Traffic Signals

Even as gasoline prices continue to fall, I am furious about the synchronization of traffic signals in my part of the world. Once upon a time, municipalities synchronized traffic signals so that a vehicle moving at or about the speed limit would be stopped by a red light very infrequently, usually once while on that…

Iraq is a Nation Again

In a move designed to shock the American press and Iraqi terrorists, the new Iraqi government took sovereign control of that country this morning in a low-key ceremony in Baghdad. The US, British, Polish, Turkish, Czech, South Korean, Japanese, and other troops are now guests of the interim government. Just months ago, critics claimed that…

US Restores Full Diplomatic Ties to Libya

According to CNN.com: The United States has formally resumed diplomatic ties with Libya after a 24-year break, the State Department says. Oh, if only the al-Zarqawi story were true. Imagine, since taking office, George Bush’s State Department has overthrown Saddam and freed 25 million Iraqi prisoners, overthrown the Taliban and freed 25 million Afghan slaves,…

Breaking News: Al-Zarqawi Captured?

Econopundit is reporting, from a source listening to Iraqi radio, that Iraqi intelligence has captured terrorist Al-Zarqawi. If so, mark June 27 as the turning point in the Iraqi operation: the second deadliest terrorist in the world captured, and a democracy in the Middle East. Not to mention NATO capitulation to Bush and Blair and…

A Blow to the Drug War?

The 9th Circuit’s ruling held that the federal marijuana laws did not apply to medicinal use of marijuana in two specific cases. As you should know, the Constitution prohibits Congress from making laws on matters that lie outside its enumerated powers, which are very limited. One of those powers, though, known as the commerce clause,…

Goldberg Assails Moore

Jonah Goldberg’s piece on Moore is required reading. If you must have a review from a liberal who has seen the movie, read Christopher Hitchens’s piece from Slate. (link below)
