The Senate is gearing up to ratify a Nixon-era U.N. treaty meant to create universal laws to govern the seas -- a treaty critics say will create a massive U.N. bureaucracy that could even claim powers over American waterways.

Comprehensive immigration reform - aka an amnesty for illegal aliens - is back. Yesterday, Harry Reid introduced S.9, the "Stronger Economy, Stronger Borders Act of 2009" ("SESBA"). What's there now is just a placeholder (link), however the remarks made by Patrick Leahy at introduction show exactly what it is. Those remarks and the list of co-sponsors are below. Note that this is a repeat of how...

John Kerry's "Campaign for Our Country" has started a new website called Truth Fights Back (truthfightsback.com), and it's pretty bad. For instance, consider the post "Barack Obama is not aligned with Weather Underground", which combines 3rd-grade-level writing with 3rd-grade-level thinking. This is the "smear" (truthfightsback.com/site/smear/200):
Republicans have repeatedly pushed a bogus story...

So, why didn't they discuss Bush's horrific scheme?
 At the time, Margaret Spellings was a domestic policy assistant; now she's Secretary of Education. You may have seen her losing on Jeopardy! in November.
Returning to the subject of John Kerry's Iraq comment, have President Bush and various GOP partisans undermined our troops and our war effort?
One of the arguments against the negative interpretation of Kerry's comment is that that comment gives comfort to al Qaeda, the Iraqi insurgents, and others. Those enemy forces can say something like, "even the U.S.
... Bush intentionally distorted John Kerry's earlier comments about Iraq. Yesterday, speaking at Pasadena City College, Kerry said this:
"You know, education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq."
The explanation is that he meant to say this:

The inspector general of the federal Legal Services Corporation has issued a report highly critical of California Rural Legal Assistance (CRLA), which is funded by LSC. He:

In any case, whether the study is accurate or not, it only reports on what supposedly happened in the past (and of necessity in a limited sample size). So, even if Hispanic immigrants have lost their native language in the past, that doesn't mean that they'll do it in the future....
... particularly intense, and if John Kerry had won a total of 127,014 more votes in New Mexico, Nevada and Colorado, states with burgeoning Latino populations, he would have carried those states and won the election.

Many of the aspects of the current immigration "reform" proposals are similar to the horribly failed past amnesties, and even some of the players - such as Teddy Kennedy - have been at this same game for decades.
There is, however, a major difference between now and then that politicians, pundits, policy makers, and even bloggers would be very wise to heed: the internet.
If you wanted to...
... unverified comment here says:
John Kerry on IMUS this morning claimed poeple wanted to deport 12 million Americans.
If anyone has a tape that would be great.
And, KFI-AM Los Angeles played a snippet of Harry Reid saying that hundreds of thousands of Americans had taken to the streets to protest for immigration "reform".
Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are proud to announced that Antonio Villaraigosa, the Los Angeles Mayor and former member of MEChA, will offer the Spanish-language response to Bush's State of the Union address on Tuesday Jan 31.
The former president of the UCLA chapter of the racial separatist group has previously admitted that his Spanish is a bit rusty. Seeing as he was born here and no doubt...
Considering all that's been going on for the past few years, you'd think the Dems would get a clue and be able to come up with a way to capitalize on things like Iraq, Katrina, massive illegal immigration, cronyism, corruption, indictments, etc.

Knight-Ridder informs us that "Top Democrats won't attend anti-war rally in Washington". (For the backstory, see "ANSWER, UPJ, Cindy Sheehan, Code Pink, MoveOn to protest at White House September 24".)
However, two lesser lights will be attending: Reps.
This week's Newsweek focuses on racial power, specifically White Power. They cover recent elections won by white people, and suggest that, while White Power is great, in order to win future elections whites need to reach out to other races.
Oh, wait! I got that wrong! This week's Newsweek features Black Power.
Ooops. I've been informed that was wrong too. The cover is actually called "Latino...

... figured out by now, I'm endorsing John Kerry to be president. I strongly urge all readers to consider the past four years, use that as a key to understanding what the next four years would be like under George Bush, and put their faith in divided government.
Two letters from the 10/21/04 La Canada Daily Sun discuss Political Human Sacrifice's David Dreier.
We Need Dreier:
David Dreier got $3 billion passed through Congress to help keep emergency rooms open in Southern California. As bad as the situation is now, imagine how much worse it would be if we hadn't gotten that money.
... the following:
It appears that John Kerry is working overtime to do or say anything to convince voters that he is a man. This week alone he (supposedly) killed a goose, in order to be seen as a he-man hunter... Does he not realize when he says things like this and when he dresses up in costume for a photo op, that at least half of America just laughs because he is so obviously phony?
... president and vice president slamming John Kerry for saying that he hopes America can eventually get back to a place where "terrorists are not the focus of our lives, but they're a nuisance." The idea that President Bush and Mr. Cheney would declare such a statement to be proof that Mr. Kerry is unfit to lead actually says more about them than Mr. Kerry.
... Rove in his first debate with John Kerry? That's the latest rumor flooding the Internet, unleashed last week in the wake of an image caught by a television camera during the Miami debate. The image shows a large solid object between Bush's shoulder blades as he leans over the lectern and faces moderator Jim Lehrer.
The president is not known to wear a back brace, and it's safe to say he wasn't...
