The evidence is still accumulating. But already we've learned that an overweening aim of the Bush administration has been to put its stamp on U.S. government far into the future. These people envisioned unchallenged Republican rule stretching toward perpetuity. Rough as it may sound, this had to mean not only defeating Democrats, but destroying them. GOP strategist Karl Rove has seemed agreeable to almost anything else. The charge that they've tried using federal attorneys for ... [full story]

A Democratic Congress is forcing a showdown with President Bush over who runs the war in Iraq: the constitutionally designated commander in chief or his hectoring critics on Capitol Hill. It's a confrontation Bush will win, as he certainly should. But that's only half the story. Beyond Congress' political gamesmanship lies the far more fateful issue of the American mission in Iraq, essential support for our troops on the battlefield and whether America's new motto ...

There are no winners or losers in tragedy - just victims. Everyone suffers - from the people displaced to the people left remaining. There's this haughty view out there that New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita has mountains and valleys, high ground and low ground. In south Louisiana, we know it's all low ground. That President George W. Bush failed to mention Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in his 2007 State of ... [full story]

Founder and chair of the American Civil Rights Institute scouts five to nine states for new anti-affirmative action initiatives Fresh from his most recent victory -- in Michigan this past November -- Ward Connerly, the African American California-based maven of anti-affirmative action initiatives, is preparing to take his jihad on the road. According to a mid-December report in the San Francisco Chronicle, Connerly said that he was "exploring moves into nine other states."   Ward Connerly During ... [full story]

To: President George W. Bush The White House Washington, D.C., 20500 Dear Mr. President: I am glad to see that you fired some U.S. attorneys. But you missed one: U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton, who prosecuted border guards Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean instead of a professional drug smuggler, and who prosecuted Texas Deputy Sheriff Gilmer Hernandez instead of a professional people-smuggler. Yes, you have the presidential prerogative to hire and fire U.S. attorneys for any ... [full story]

A common expression has it that the opposite of love is not hate but indifference. Unfortunately, that's exactly the message the GOP is sending to the residents of our nation's capital by its recent actions in trying to defeat the bipartisan DC Voting Rights Act on a procedural motion. The Republicans in the House, as well as advisers to the president - by threatening a veto - are in danger not only of indifference to ... [full story]

It has long been a bane of civic life in the District of Columbia - headquarters town for what we are pleased to call the greatest democracy on Earth - that some 570,000 residents enjoy very limited self-government. Roughly equal in population to at least a half-dozen states, folks in D.C. have no voting representation in Congress. Worse, a "District Committee" in the House of Representatives has long exerted more power over the city of ... [full story]

Wars are never won by the faint of heart. Iraq will be no exception. While defeatist Democrats in Congress push for prompt troop withdrawals and artificial timetables, President Bush favors further military and political efforts to achieve the mission's objective - a stable, democratic Iraq that can govern and defend itself. Whatever chance there is of accomplishing this mission, quitting now is a guarantee of failure and defeat. Recriminations over the many mistakes and misjudgments ... [full story]

The stealth dismissal of U.S. attorneys by the Bush administration carries echoes of the Nixon administration firing special prosecutor Archibald Cox in 1973. Now, as then, we may be witnessing criminal acts of obstruction of justice at the highest levels of government. If left to fester, they will poison our system. Cox was investigating White House misdeeds when Nixon told Attorney General Elliot Richardson to fire him. Richardson refused and resigned, as did Deputy Attorney ... [full story]

In 2003, the National Urban League undertook a more focused and aggressive approach to health issues in light of serious disparities in the physical well-being of blacks as compared to whites. It stands to reason that a healthier community means a more prosperous community - one with fewer sick days, higher productivity and lower health care costs. So, it pays to take preventive steps to stave off major illness for as long as possible - ... [full story]

San Diego's Scripps Institution of Oceanography has been involved in global-warming science for decades. The San Diego Union-Tribune's editorial board recently interviewed Scripps director Tony Haymet and scientist Richard Somerville. Q: In summary form, tell our readers what is the core message of the Summary for Policy-makers report of the Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change. Richard Somerville: I'll say at the start that I'm not speaking as a representative of the IPCC. I have been ... [full story]
