Dec 29,2006
One of this nation's premier journalists (also a friend of long standing) wrote a column last week that can only be labeled as "Bush bashing" writ large. E.J. Dionne Jr. writing in the Washington Post and Investor's Business Daily, wrote the following: "winning the war in Iraq was never the Bush administration's highest priority, saving its tax cuts was more important." Ugh! E.J., E.J., what's gotten into you, don't you read my columns, haven't you ... [full story]

"Auntie Pam, can only boys be president?" The question hung in the air, and then in my head, for days afterward. "Can only boys be president?" My great-niece repeated herself. I fumbled with the rearview mirror, messed with the radio knobs, stalling for time while an 8-year-old waited for a clear answer to a question she shouldn't have to ask. My gut told me a simple response "Of course not" was not enough to erase ... [full story]

Dec 22,2006
It was a bad week for advocates of amnesty and a guest-worker program. On Dec. 12, the Bush administration finally cracked down, 20 years late, on a few thousand of the hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants who are illegally employed in the United States. This crackdown on employers was promised by the Reagan amnesty of 1986 and now, 20 years later, the government is getting around to enforcing the law. The feds arrested thousands ... [full story]

Said Tayeb Jawad has been Afghanistan's ambassador to the United States since 2003. After being educated in Afghanistan and Germany, Jawad settled in the United States in 1986, earning a master's degree in business administration from Golden Gate University in San Francisco. He returned to Afghanistan four months after Sept. 11, 2001, to assist in the rebuilding of that nation following the U.S. invasion that toppled the Taliban dictatorship. He worked in a variety of ... [full story]

Hollywood could have used George W. Bush. He'd be perfect for those barroom scenes of the Old West - as the cautious card player who never could decide whether to hold 'em or fold 'em. You didn't have to be anti-Bush to wonder at the president's reaction to this Iraq Study Group. Here's a guy wallowing in what his father once would have called "deep doo-doo." Most of the Iraq war's early supporters have run ... [full story]

The double life of one of Bush's key links to the conservative Christian evangelical right  About a week before Karl Rove and Team Bush received its November Surprise, Pastor Ted Haggard got one of his own. As voters in Colorado were preparing to vote on ballot initiatives banning gay marriage, Mike Jones, a former gay escort, came forward and claimed that he had a three-year sexual relationship with Haggard, the founder and senior leader of ...

I'm writing this column with a very heavy heart at the passing on the night of Dec. 7 of one of America's greatest and most brilliant diplomats, my colleague and friend, former Ambassador Jeane Kirkpatrick. Indeed Monday of this week was a memorial service at our Presbyterian church in which I was privileged to give a eulogy. By the way, this is my first column after a 2 1/2 month hiatus as I recover from ... [full story]

David Kuo's new book 'Tempting Faith' confirms that the faith-based initiative is little more than part of a political-religious patronage system David Kuo may have lost his faith in the Bush Administration, but he has not lost his faith. These days, Kuo is at once profoundly disappointed and yet still extremely hopeful. He is disappointed that President Bush has not kept his promise to fully fund faith-based programs aimed at helping the poor. He is ... [full story]

News stories at this time of year sometimes deliver information about men's shopping habits, including that a surprising number postpone holiday shopping until Christmas Eve. But in many families, gifts that come from the mall aren't the best ones guys can give their loved ones. For tens of thousands of Oregon men who are addicted to alcohol, the most valuable gift they can give is the gift of sobriety. Call it The Gift of You. ... [full story]

As Christian evangelicals in the United States grow their support for Israel, conversion of Jews to Christianity continues to be a thorny issue for both Christians and Jews. The Southern Baptist Convention, the largest U.S. Protestant denomination, has made the conversion of Jews official policy, while the San Francisco-based "Jews for Jesus" exists solely to convert Jews to Christianity. Bill McCartney, a former University of Colorado football coach who co-founded the evangelical Promise Keepers movement ... [full story]

Nancy Scheper-Hughes opens her provocative essay entitled "Biopiracy and the Global Quest for Human Organs," with a scene taken from Stephen Frears' film "Dirty Pretty Things." Okwe, an illegal Nigerian immigrant doctor, framed in his homeland and forced into exile in London, discovers that the hotel where he works is one stop along the grisly trail of illegal body parts trafficking. In a late-January episode of the CBS television program "Numb3rs" -- a detective series ... [full story]

One of the many beauties of the American democratic system is that when we cast our vote on Nov. 7, we chose individuals, candidates who had his or her own line on the ballot. It wasn’t a vote for an institution or a political party (even if we voted a straight party line), our votes were for individuals. Whether we were voting for one person or against another doesn’t matter, only that we voted for ... [full story]

A GOP defeat could benefit conservatives, says New Right founding father and king of conservative direct mail, Richard Viguerie "In the early 1990s, they talked about a culture of corruption by the Democrats and how they were abusing their power. Lo and behold, that seems to be what the Republicans have engaged in. It's very, very hard to tell conservatives that there really is a significant difference on most issues between this crowd and the ... [full story]
