DeLay Atty Has Beaten Earle

“I represented Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison 12 years ago, and to me this seems like what Yogi Berra said: ‘It’s deja vu all over again.’ That was a political prosecution. This is a political prosecution.”

Speaking is Tom DeLay’s attorney, Dick DeGuerin, which suggests this alternative headline:

DeGuerin DeFends DeLay Against DeBum.

Tuesday’s Vote On Pres. Bush

Tuesday’s special election to select the GOP candidate to fill Chris Cox’s vacated OC seat is setting up as a referendum on the President. There are 17 candidates, but only two that matter.

In this corner, John Campbell, who Hugh Hewitt listeners know as “the smartest man in Sacramento.” Campbell is pretty much a Bush man, although he’d like to see a stronger stand on immigration — as would most of us. AP quotes him:

“Of the leading candidates, I’m probably with the president on more issues than anyone else.”

And in the other corner: Marilyn Brewer, perhaps even better known in the District than Campbell. She’s a well-liked but liberal Republican, supporting abortion rights and stem cell research. She’s also been talking a green streak, if you catch my drift. She discounts Bush with a shrug:

“If the election was this year … he would not be re-elected.”

My office is in the District as is part of our local cable franchise service area, so I’ve been watching the race develop. There have been hard-hitting attacks on Brewer from Campbell, going after her more for absenteeism than positions. Brewer’s been pretty mum, but I’m out of town in the final days before the election, when she’ll probably be hitting back.

My bet’s on Campbell and the president, but the beach cities, while Republican, aren’t as conservative as the inland cities, so it’ll be an interesting race to watch.

Intelligent Intelligent Design Op/Ed

Blogger Gary Bourque at Both Worlds got a bit excited about an op/ed slamming Intelligent Design in his local paper, so he wrote a rebuttal which … surprised? … was never published.

So he published it on Both Worlds, and it’s worth reading, from its whimsical lead …

A blogger friend of mine once wrote that intelligent design opponents see intelligent design advocates the way Elmer Fudd sees Bugs Bunny, as wascally wabbits trying to pull one over on the west of us.

… to its provocative close:

Bookman [who wrote the anti-ID piece] would suppress teaching that evidence on the thin ground that it happens to benefit the faith of its advocates, which is another way of saying the best science is science that pleases only atheists.

Bookman has one valid point–lying to promote truth is counterproductive. But focusing on irrelevancies in order to avoid a more important point is a form of lying.

So which is worse, advocating the teaching of a scientific fact which happens to benefit a particular faith, or suppressing that fact because of, well, whatever motives evolutionists have, which nobody ever bothers to question?

Jennings Estate And Lib Journalism

Oh, the hardscrabble life of the journalist:

Peter Jennings left a fortune worth more than $50 million to his wife and two children, according to the ABC News anchor’s will, the Daily News has learned.

Well, OK, let’s not begrudge him his bucks for clawing his way to the top. But as a Lib, surely he gave a lot of his wealth back to the people, right?

Jennings, 67, left the bulk of his estate in trust for his two children, Elizabeth, 25, and Christopher, 23, from his marriage to writer Kati Marton, according to the will, filed Wednesday in Manhattan Surrogate’s Court.

He left his Central Park West apartment to his widow, Kayce Freed, whom he wed in 1997, as well as a portion of his estate, as laid out in a prenuptial agreement the couple signed before their wedding.

Oh. Well, then, surely he lived a frugal life, out of understanding of the poor and oppressed people for whom he cared so deeply, right?

Jennings, who died last month after battling lung cancer, reportedly earned as much as $10 million a year during part of his tenure at ABC. His will lists $50 million in personal property and $3.5 million in real property in New York.

$10 million a year and a $50 million estate to show for it — this guy must have been spending money like a drunken fleet of sailors!

Sheesh.

The Meathead-Moonbeam Ticket

What a nightmare. Carl Reiner is apparently set on a run for CA gov, and the police and fire unions are pushing hard for Jerry Brown for attorney general.

Like Schwarzenegger, Reiner has successfully led a statewide initiative — on preschooler programs — and he’s itching for a bigger playground in which to tinker with his old lib toys.

And Atty Gen Moonbeam? That would prove what I thought was unprovable: No one could be a worse Atty Gen than Bill Lockyer.

Maybe Incredible Wife and I can pick up something cheap somewhere along the Gulf Coast ….

Hellerstein: Three for Three

Fed. Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein was new to me when I heard about his order that photos and films of Abu Ghraib abuse cases be released, but he’s been on the case for quite some time.

In August 2004, according to Cooperative Research:

After an oral argument in the US District Court for the Southern District of New York, Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein orders the Pentagon and other government agencies to comply with the Freedom of Information Act and provide the American Civil Liberties Union and other civil rights groups documents about detention and interrogation activities regarding prisoners in Afghanistan, Iraq, Guantanamo, and elsewhere. The government must comply by August 23, the court orders.

And a few months later, in December:

Five agencies, under an agreement worked out by US District Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein, release approximately 9,000 pages of internal reports, investigations, and e-mails containing information about prisoner abuse in Cuba, Iraq, and Afghanistan. The massive disclosure marks the end of a more than 13-month long effort (see October 7, 2003) by five human rights groups to access the documents under the Freedom of Information Act. The documents demonstrate that the abuses were far more widespread and systemic than previously acknowledged by the government. The documents include information about numerous abuses, such as threatened and mocked executions, thefts of private property, physical assaults, shocking detainees with electric guns, the use of dogs to intimidate prisoners at Guantanamo, shackling detainees without food and water, and murder. In many of the cases, the Army chose to punish offenders with non-criminal punishments rather than court-martial them. Reporting on the disclosure, the Washington Post notes, “The variety of the abuse and the fact that it occurred over a three-year period undermine the Pentagon’s past insistence … that the abuse occurred largely during a few months at [Abu Ghraib], and that it mostly involved detainee humiliation or intimidation rather than the deliberate infliction of pain.” [Washington Post, 12/22/2004]

This is a man who has seen the results of his actions — rioting, death, US soldiers at risk — and that’s all just fine with him.

Born in the mid-thirties in New York, educated entirely at Columbia, appointed by Clinton: Can you say “out of touch liberal?”

Update: Hellerstein is also handling a lawsuit brought by 9/11 families against Boeing, an airport security firm, the World Trade Center and others. He’s behaving the same way on that case:

On December 20, 2004, Hellerstein said he would deny a government request to delay a review of whether certain CIA internal files related to Iraq should be made public. [1] Judge Alvin Hellerstein’s comments marked a victory for the ACLU and other groups seeking information about the treatment of detainees at Guantanamo and in Iraq. (source)

Talkin’ With Hugh About ESA

It was a pleasure talking this afternoon on-air with Hugh about the Endangered Species Act. It is semi-exhilarating to have a decent ESA bill clear the house, but only semi, because the Senate looms dark and foreboding ahead.

Hugh thinks Lincoln Chafee will be an brick wall, a Republican in Dem clothing in the all-powerful Environment and Public Works Committee. Hugh suggests funding the heck out of Chafee’s primary opposition which is a good idea.

Also targeted is DiFi. She’s seen the benefits of habitat conservation plan in her hard work to reach the Headwaters (timber) and Cal-Fed (water supply) agreements. And she’s also seen how underhanded and self-interested the enviros can be.

She’s also seen their money and gotten their votes.

It’ll be a tough fight, but the stakes are high — nothing short of our life in the West. The hardcore environmentalists are using ESA to attack our water supplies, our power supplies, our schools, our roads. Their mission is to depopulate the west, or at least keep it from growing.

That means they’re against my kids and future grandkids. And that means I’m against them.

UN Will Not Get Control Of Web

The US thumbed its digital nose at the UN today, telling them to keep their hands off the Internet. AP reports:

“We will not agree to the U.N. taking over the management of the Internet,” said Ambassador David Gross, the U.S. coordinator for international communications and information policy at the State Department. “Some countries want that. We think that’s unacceptable.” …

One proposal that countries have been discussing would wrest control of domain names from the U.S.-based Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, or ICANN, and place it with an intergovernmental group, possibly under the United Nations.

Gross dismissed it as unacceptable.

“We’ve been very, very clear throughout the process that there are certain things we can agree to and certain things we can’t agree to,” Gross told reporters at U.N. offices in Geneva. “It’s not a negotiating issue. This is a matter of national policy.”

It’s hard imagine a scenario worse than putting the globe’s emerging economic engine into the hands of as corrupt and selfish despots, oppressors and enemies of free speech as those who sit on the floor of the UN General Assembly.

Or put more simply, it’s our ball. Play our way, or go home.

Roberts Confirmed; AP In A Snit

Oh, those little words that tell so much.

In reporting on Roberts’ strong showing in the Senate — 78 for, 22 pro-abortion fanatics against — AP slipped in a bit of prejudice. Way down in paragraph 10, AP couldn’t fully hold back its liberal displeasure with the nomination:

“With the confirmation of John Roberts, the Supreme Court will embark upon a new era in its history, the Roberts era,” said Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., whose 55 GOP members unanimously voted for the multimillionaire judge. (emphasis added)

What in the world does that have to do with anything? When DiFi was questioning Roberts, did AP refer to her as the “multimillionaire senator?” And I wonder why the reporter, Jesse J. Holland, didn’t bother to include this:

At least 40 of the 100 US senators are millionaires, some many times over, according to financial disclosure filings submitted last month. Republicans on the list outnumbered Democrats by a narrow margin of 22 to 18. However, Democratic senators hold the top five spots on the list and eight of the top ten, according to an analysis of the forms by CNN.

Well, Holland is left to slip in his little invectives while we get a strict constitutionalist for life. Not a bad deal.

Greenies In The Green

The other day, I mentioned that the Center for Biology Absurdity … uh, Diversity … makes big money in legal cost reimbursements. A friend emailed me the actual amount: $718,569 in 2003.

The Center brings easy-to-win critical habitat lawsuits against the US Fish & Wildlife Service, racks up hours in filing, defending and settling the lawsuits, and is reimbursed at a rate of approximately $300 an hour. It pays its eight eager young attorneys considerably less than that – the group’s entire G&A expendures for the year were just $227,287.

Even before grants (more federal money) and contributions, they’re using litigation to generate a profit of almost $500,000.

This is one reason why it is important to amend ESA, and one reason why the Center is foaming at the mouth about the proposed changes. There is no reason why a federal law should be a printing press to print money for radical greens.

If you haven’t done so yet, go to SaveHCPs.org and send a letter to your representative in support of HR 3824. If you live outside California, by noon today PST there should be a letter up on the site that has a non-Californian slant.

With Obama winning the presidency by seven percent, we can't blame the media. Their laudatory coverage and refusal to extensively probe into Obama's background and [lack of] experience was at best responsible for five percent of his vote, the pundits tell us. Here is a compilation of over 100 significant instances of pro-Obama/anti-McCain bias during the 2008 campaign.
