Hillary’s Ultra-Left Campaign Speak

By Amanda Carpenter

"Hillary Clinton denies that she’s a Marxist, but she sure talks like one.

While campaigning for the Democratic nomination for President, Clinton has said “something has to be taken away from some people” to advance her political goals and lauded billionaire investor Warren Buffet as a “patriot” because he wants to pay more taxes.

Clinton strives to maintain a moderate image in public appearances, but she’s prone to making an occasional unscripted remark that reveals her true nature as a hard-line liberal ideologue."

Do the Clintons Now Support Jail Time For Perjurers?

By Dick Morris and Eileen McGann

"Former President Bill Clinton and Senator Hillary Clinton are absolutely outraged that President Bush granted executive clemency to Scooter Libby, recently convicted of making false statements under oath. They obviously believe that Libby should serve his thirty month sentence.

Does that mean that they now think that perjurers should go to jail? Or have they simply forgotten about Bill Clinton's own plea agreement in the last hours of his presidency — for making false statements under oath? Some people would call that perjury.

One would have thought that Hillary and Bill Clinton wouldn't touch the Libby executive clemency issue with a ten-foot pole — for lots of reasons.

After all, Bill Clinton has a well-earned reputation as the king of pardons — granting 140 of them during his last minutes in office — with many going to terrorists, people who had paid Hillary's brothers to arrange for pardons, contributed money or key support to Hillary's Senate campaign, given the Clintons expensive personal gifts, and/or made large contributions to Bill Clinton's Presidential Library. One of the pardons went to Bill's own brother, Roger, while another went to Susan MacDougal, who kept quiet about Clinton during the Whitewater trial.

That's really cronyism, Hillary.

Given the disgraceful Clinton record on pardons, most reasonable people would have kept quiet — especially when Libby's offense was so similar to Bill's own criminal conviction. But the self-righteous former first couple couldn't resist. Once the clemency was announced, Hillary immediately attacked President Bush, saying, 'This commutation sends the clear signal that in this administration, cronyism and ideology trump competence and justice.'

Hey, Hillary, do you understand what cronyism really means?"

Is Corporate Socialism’s Trojan Horse Running Lame?

By Nick Nichols

"While many of us were celebrating our nation’s hard won sovereignty, the United Nations (UN) was orchestrating a summit meeting of Global Compact leaders at its Geneva, Switzerland headquarters. The UN describes the seven-year-old Global Compact as “an international initiative that would bring companies together with UN agencies, labor and non-government organizations to support universal environmental and social principles.” In fact, The Global Compact appears to be an attempt by the UN to capitalize on the Corporate Social Responsibility movement and circumvent the sovereignty of its member nations.

Corporations that sign the Compact’s dotted line must subscribe to ten principles that are derived from: "

The Revolt on Illegal Immigration


"After the utter collapse in the Senate last week of a comprehensive immigration bill, Washington insiders are blaming everyone and everything.

The Real Islam

"Is our fight against terrorism or against Islamic fascism? To wit, is Islam peaceful, or intrinsically fascist?

The answers couldn’t be clearer. Terrorism is not an enemy; it’s a tactic. Muslim examples aside, terrorist tactics have been adopted by groups as varied as Northern Ireland’s IRA, Colombia’s FARC, the Shining Path of Peru, West Germany’s Baader-Meinhof Gang, Italy’s Brigate Rosse, Spain’s Basque ETA, and our homegrown Symbionese Liberation Army. Mostly separatists and leftists, none of these groups viewed terrorism as an end in itself, but as a means to another, political end.

Unlike terrorism, Islam is an ideology bent on territorial expansion and political domination. These traits, along with iron-fisted socioeconomic controls, are the essential characteristics of fascism."

Passport outrage

Official who caused the crisis set to be promoted

"During a contentious Senate hearing last week, State Department consular chief Maura Harty took personal responsibility for the backlog of two million passport applications -- leading to wait times of 12 weeks or more -- that has wreaked havoc on honeymoons, family getaways, and business trips.

She was hailed by many for her contrite performance. Unfortunately, though Harty was apologetic, she was not entirely honest. Not only that, the Senate did not learn the full extent of her personal culpability in creating the passport mess with a series of blunders.

And on the heels of creating a backlog of two million passport applications and then misleading Congress about it, Harty is poised for a promotion. Unless the White House acts to stop it, Harty could soon ascend to one of the top positions at the State Department."

Can you trust Al Gore's scientific claims ?

Writing an op-ed piece in Sunday's New York Times, Algore

Consider this tale of two planets. Earth and Venus are almost exactly the same size, and have almost exactly the same amount of carbon. The difference is that most of the carbon on Earth is in the ground--having been deposited there by various forms of life over the last 600 million years--and most of the carbon on Venus is in the atmosphere.

As a result, while the average temperature on Earth is a pleasant 59 degrees, the average temperature on Venus is 867 degrees. True, Venus is closer to the Sun than we are, but the fault is not in our star; Venus is three times hotter on average than Mercury, which is right next to the Sun. It's the carbon dioxide.

However, the atmosphere on Mars is 95% carbon dioxide, a tad shy of Venus's 96%, as pointed out by George Reisman. And what is the average temperature on Mars? Eighty-one below zero. So much for that theory, Al.

Hat tip James Taranto.

Meanwhile, Taranto identifies Agence France-Presse as they report:

Scientists who probed two kilometers (1.2 miles) through a Greenland glacier to recover the oldest plant DNA on record said Thursday the planet was far warmer hundreds of thousands of years ago than is generally believed.

"If scientists have such difficulty predicting past weather, surely we should be skeptical about politicians' predictions of future weather," quips Taranto.

Food Cops Cheer Over Rising Food Costs

"Last week's issue of TIME magazine featured an endorsement of America's rising grocery prices. Yes, an endorsement. Claiming that obesity is the residual price of affordable food, TIME reporter John Cloud concludes that 'it actually would be good if food cost a great deal more.' But growing grocery bills won't bring shrinking waistlines, because personal preferences drive dietary choices more directly than pocketbook concerns." Read on.

Not only this but, I have heard it argued many times, the poor in the U.S. are also overweight because they have less money with which to buy groceries, and therefore end up purchasing cheaper, less healthy, high-caloric and fat-laden food items.

Using this argument, will this not then be an unintended (and harmful) consequence that will affect an even larger segment of the population? Or am I just being too logical?

Inconvenient Truths about Stem Cell Policy

By David Davenport

"Stem cell research policy requires the balancing of moral, scientific and social questions. Shallow sound-bites, such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi saying President Bush's stem cell policy "ignores the will of the American people" or Senator Clinton's claim that "as president I will lift the ban on stem cell research" are not helpful. Here are some facts about stem cell policy to keep in mind:

First, there is no ban on stem cell research. What is banned is federal funding of research on newly destroyed embryos.

Second, there is plenty of stem cell research available right now--with state and private funding, existing embryonic lines, amniotic fluids and adult lines.

And third, new research possibilities are opening up that don't cross moral barriers.

The president's policy is a careful balancing of interests, informed by scientists and ethicists--and his recent veto was the right thing to do."

The Forgotten "A" Word: Assimilation

Independence Day Messages From John Adams

“A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their virtue then will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.”
--Samuel Adams--

American by Choice

—By David Aikman

Across America on this Fourth of July, there will be parades and flags and fireworks. It's a grand holiday to honor America's original declaration of independence from Great Britain back in 1776.

For Americans who were born in this country, the holiday is as American as the hot dogs served on the Fourth in millions of backyards throughout the land.

But for those of us who are Americans by choice, like myself, Independence Day has a deeper resonance. It means more than just freedom of opportunity to succeed. Since Abraham Lincoln's day, America has always been the last best hope of freedom on earth. For many of us, this is the America we really love, the nation that strives to be a beacon of freedom, justice and peace to all nations. Do we always succeed? Of course not. But Lincoln's "last best hope" is that we keep on trying.

HeavyHanded wishes you all a Happy Independence day.

Tuesday, July 03, 2007

James Taranto at Best of the Web Today points out:

    "In August 1999 President Clinton granted executive clemency to 16 members of FALN, the Puerto Rican terror group behind some 130 bombings, including one that killed four people at New York's Fraunces Tavern in 1975."

    He further notes that "even the ultraliberal New York Times looked askance" at this decision by President Clinton:

    To be sure, an American President has an absolute power to pardon. But that does not relieve him of the obligation to defend any and every decision to intervene in the criminal justice system. Indeed, this President's rare use of the pardoning power makes it all the more important for him to reveal his reasoning. Of more than 3,000 applications for clemency filed since 1993, he has granted only 3. The suspicion is rampant that his motivation was a political effort to please the Puerto Rican community that is crucial to Mrs. Clinton's hopes in the coming Senate race from New York.

    Taranto writes that "the House voted 311-41 for a nonbinding resolution "expressing the sense of Congress that the President should not have granted clemency to terrorists." All 41 of those voting "no" were Democrats, as were 71 of the 72 members who voted "present" (the other was a self-styled socialist who abjured formal membership in the party)."

    Nancy Pelosi did not vote, but only because she showed up too late to vote as the Congressional Record reveals:

    Ms. PELOSI. Mr. Chairman, on the last vote, H. Con. Res. 180, I was detained in traffic while returning to the Capitol. Had I been present, I would have voted "no."

    Pelosi could not bring herself to stand opposed and was not willing to criticize the president, more than likely due to the fact he was from her own party, when he pardoned and set free terrorists who had been "convicted of such crimes as seditious conspiracy, possession of unregistered firearms and interstate transportation of a stolen vehicle." Yet Pelosi was able to put out this dribble:

    The President's commutation of Scooter Libby's prison sentence does not serve justice, condones criminal conduct, and is a betrayal of trust of the American people.

    The President said he would hold accountable anyone involved in the Valerie Plame leak [sic] case. By his action today, the President shows his word is not to be believed. He has abandoned all sense of fairness when it comes to justice, he has failed to uphold the rule of law, and he has failed to hold his Administration accountable.

    Taranto says, "we're just happy that a good and patriotic man won't have to go to prison as a sacrifice to the Angry Left." and asks, "By the way, what about the real "leaker" of Plame's "identity," Richard Armitage? Is he ever going to face "justice"?

    HeavyHanded thinks not.

Huckabee's Record: Anything But Conservative

Former Arkansas governor and GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee wants to be seen as — in his own words — an "authentic" conservative, but his governing record shows he does not live up to the image.

“In its main features the Declaration of Independence is a spiritual document. It is a declaration not of material but spiritual conceptions. Equality, liberty, popular sovereignty, the rights of man—these are not elements which we can see and touch. They are ideals. They have their source and their roots in religious convictions. They belong to the unseen world. Unless the faith of the American people in these religious convictions is to endure, the principles of our Declaration will perish. We cannot continue to enjoy the result if we neglect and abandon the cause. If all men are created equal, that is final. If they are endowed with inalienable rights, that is final. If governments derive their just power from the consent of the governed, that is final. No advance, no progress can be made beyond these propositions. If anyone wishes to deny their truth and their soundness, the only direction in which he can proceed historically is not forward, but backward toward the time when there was no equality, no rights of the individual, no rule of the people. Those who wish to proceed in that direction cannot lay claim to progress.”

“Somewhere in our growing up we began to be aware of the meaning of days and with that awareness came the birth of patriotism. July Fourth is the birthday of our nation. I believed as a boy, and believe even more today, that it is the birthday of the greatest nation on earth... In recent years, however, I’ve come to think of that day as more than just the birthday of a nation. It also commemorates the only true philosophical revolution in all history. Oh, there have been revolutions before and since ours. But those revolutions simply exchanged one set of rules for another. Ours was a revolution that changed the very concept of government. Let the Fourth of July always be a reminder that here in this land, for the first time, it was decided that man is born with certain God-given rights; that government is only a convenience created and managed by the people, with no powers of its own except those voluntarily granted to it by the people. We sometimes forget that great truth, and we never should. Happy Fourth of July.”

What I Learned in Senate School This Week

By Michael McBride

"As I have written before, politics is no longer about good legislation, it is about politicking. Our DC based legislative processes have evolved into a frenetic, self-absorbed, narcissistic tango of Beltway ricocheting that produces products not designed to yield a better functioning country; but designed only to preserve the contact between ours legislators’ abundant behinds and their opulent leather chairs.

And nothing could make that plainer than the wandering, and eventually fruitless machinations that will forever be the hallmark of the Kennedy-McCain Immigration bill. In the fallout of the debacle that was, lie some important lessons for the week." Read on.

The Return of Fidel Castro and Post-Fidel Cuba: Newsroom: The Independent Institute

By William Ratliff

"We finally have tolerably good evidence that Fidel Castro is really alive and at least to some degree recuperating after ten months and several surgeries. The key event was a fifty-minute pre-recorded interview broadcast on Cuban National Television in early June, in which Castro, still clearly weak, aimlessly reminisced and at times appeared a bit incoherent.

The only people who had seen Fidel since he disappeared from public view (besides medical personnel) were, reportedly, his international revolutionary heir apparent, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, high level Asian communist officials and assorted crony bureaucrats and political lap dogs. Reportedly he recently met with the top leaders of Vietnam, Venezuela, Bolivia and Nicaragua.

Chavez told Ahmedinejad that he wants to form an alliance of states to oppose U.S. policy, Reuters reported.

Federal Cigarette Tax Hike Proposed to Fund Medical Care

(CNSNews.com) - Two senators have proposed increasing the federal tax on tobacco to fund the reauthorization of a program that pays for children's medical care, a move the tobacco industry says would be unfair and unreliable. Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) and Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) released a statement in June supporting an increase in the tobacco tax to fund the State Children's Health Insurance Program (S-CHIP), which is due for reauthorization this year. Kennedy and Hatch were the original sponsors of the program when it was created in 1997. The federal government has spent nearly $40 billion on S-CHIP since its inception, according to the Congressional Budget Office. The program serves approximately 6.6 million children and about 670,000 adults. Full Story

"Raising the minimum wage is one of the most important steps we can take to lift working families out of poverty and into the middle class," said Edwards, who also wants to index the minimum wage and tie it to the national average wage. "No one who works full-time should have to live in poverty," he added. "If a job takes you away from your family every single day - or for many low-wage workers, all through the night - it had better pay you enough to support them."

Fairness Doctrine: The New Totalitarianism

The talk about imposing a "fairness doctrine" on radio and TV has now migrated from the fringes of the far left to some of the senior Democrats on Capitol Hill--including Senators Feinstein, Durbin and Kerry.Believe it or not, these legislators appear to be serious about abusing the power of the federal government to control the political programming private companies would be allowed to broadcast, and to prevent the public from choosing stations that sounded "too one-sided" to bureaucrats.This chilling prospect reflects the totalitarian temptation at the heart of today's so-called "progressive" agenda. Leftists trust bureaucrats to determine the cars you're allowed to drive, the guns you're allowed to own, the terms of employment you're allowed to negotiate and the sort of political messages you're allowed to receive. Conservatives prefer free-market solutions and open competition--in mass media and elsewhere--because we trust the people more than the regulators.
