    During an emotional moment at the Dallas Women's Museum, Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison praised Hillary Rodham Clinton for "keeping a confident face" during the 2008 presidential campaign when "you were getting so many disappointments." "You were completely devastated and you never let it show on your face," Hutchison said during the forum. "That character is why you are secretary of state today."

    Kay Bailey Hutchison cautious in praising Sarah Palin ST. PAUL, Minn. Ė Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison contrasted the full-throated defense of Sarah Palin by some in her party and lowered the bar Wednesday by offering her own statesman-like, cautious praise for the vice presidential nominee. Asked if Ms. Palin is ready to be vice president, Ms. Hutchison said that "she offers a lot to the ticket. We'll see in the coming weeks how she does, where she goes. And I think she's going to do fine."

    BROWNSVILLE ó Some conservatives are labeling U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison a traitor after she slipped an amendment into the federal budget bill passed last month that some say effectively kills the border fence. The conservative radio world and blogosphere has been buzzing with outcry that the amendment ó which removed the requirement under the Secure Fence Act for a double-layered fence and gave Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff flexibility in its placement ó did just that. Nationally syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin decried the "incredible shrinking border fence." Others called Hutchison "Benedict Arnold" and said the Texas Republican used the...

    The Evening Bulletin ^ | 1/02/2008 | Joe Murray
    In a quiet act of defiance, the Senate approved a $555 billion omnibus spending bill that removed legal requirements mandating the federal government fund 854 miles of a double layer border fence spanning America's southwestern border. The funding requirement was codified into law when Congress passed, and President George W. Bush signed, the Secure Fence Act (SFA) in 2006. When the spending bill, which combines appropriations for a number of federal agencies, reached the Senate, Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Tex.) attached S.Amdt. 2466 to the measure in order to silently gut the SFA's spending requirement. The Hutchison amendment reads, "Nothing...

    Captain's Quarters ^ | Dec. 18, 2007 | Ed Morrissey
    Congress has apparently misinterpreted the call to shrink the federal government. While our Representatives and Senators have included over 9,000 earmarks in the omnibus spending bill under consideration today, and while they continue to add more and more federal spending, they have shrunk the border fence passed by the 109th Congress last year. It removes the requirements for specific construction and location, leaving the project in limbo (via Michelle Malkin and Memeorandum): Congress last night passed a giant new spending bill that undermines current plans for a U.S.-Mexico border fence, allowing the Homeland Security Department to build a single-tier barrier...

    WASHINGTON - A Senate plan to build 700 miles of border fencing hit a snag Tuesday when Texas' senators said the Department of Homeland Security and border communities ó not Congress ó should decide where the fence is built. The objections by Republican Sens. Kay Bailey Hutchison and John Cornyn complicated plans by Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., to win passage this week of a bill intended to showcase to voters the GOP's commitment to border security. The House passed an identical fencing bill last week, with specific locations for the fence, such as a segment from Laredo to Brownsville....

    WASHINGTON Ė With Congress at a stalemate over immigration, Texas' two senators took different tacks this week in hopes of breaking the logjam and getting a bill to President Bush's desk. Sen. John Cornyn and fellow Republican Jon Kyl of Arizona on Monday urged the president to make a bold move and demand that Congress immediately free up nearly $4 billion for hundreds of Border Patrol agents, immigration inspectors and border fencing. Doing so, they said, will convince Americans that the federal government is serious about enforcing immigration law Ė and could increase support for a broader bill that includes...
  • Omnibus Bill Includes Border Fence-Gutting Amendment (This is outrageous!!!)

    Business Wire ^ | 12/17/2007
    MAXWELL, Iowa--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The omnibus Consolidated Appropriations bill includes a little-known provision that guts the major provisions of the Secure Fence Act of 2006. This provision -- buried on page 123 of Division E of the Consolidated Appropriations Act - contradicts the Secure Fence Actís specific mandate of a double-layer fence covering 854 miles of the U.S-Mexico border. Grassfire.org has been tracking this provision which was first introduced quietly by Sen. Hutchison this summer as S.Amdt. 2466 to H.R. 2368 (the DHS appropriations bill). ďThe Hutchison amendment gives DHS virtually total discretion over how and where the fence is built,Ē says...

But the budget bill now in a conference committee contains the Hutchinson amendment, and Elliott says it simply would drop the requirement for the security project. ďAfter the Secure Fence Act of 2006 was...

    Do you know the story of the Incredible Disappearing Border Fence? It's an object lesson in gesture politics and homeland insecurity. It's a tale of hollow rhetoric, meaningless legislation and bipartisan betrayal. And in the run-up to the Iowa caucuses, it's a helpful learning tool as you assess the promises of immigration enforcement converts now running for president. Last fall, Democrats and Republicans in Washington responded to continued public outrage over border chaos by passing the "Secure Fence Act." Did you question the timing? You should have. It's no coincidence they finally got off their duffs to respond just before...

    Establishment Republicans are always mystified when they embrace Democratic Party policies and get hammered for it, particularly, as is frequently the case, when those programs don't work particularly well. "It was everyday moms who shamed the Republicans into abandoning Common Core," syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin averred at the Conservative Political Action Conference. "There are three reasons why Jeb Bush failed: his last name; his support for amnesty; and his cheerleading and cashing in on Common Core."

    Constitutional conservatives don't like it. Trade unions abhor it. Obama critics hate it. Environmentalists despise it. Outside the Beltway bubble, a broad coalition of voters from the left, right and center opposes the mega-trade deal getting rammed through Congress this week by the Republican establishment on behalf of the White House. Here's why. The Obama administration, House GOP leader John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have sold out American sovereignty. Their so-called Trans-Pacific Partnership Commission will have sweeping authority over trade, immigration, environmental, labor and commerce regulations. As alert watchdogs U.S. Sen.

    Whoa. Sorry to say this, but I have a negative article to post about Donald Trump today. Donald apparently had a dust-up with Michelle Malkin recently. Michelle Malkin. Worse it appears Donald started the dust-up. Although it appears both got involved. Very bad move, Donald. I'm going with Michelle Malkin, 100%, on this. If you had any sense Donald, you would apologize to the lady, and admit you were clearly out of bounds. On this, and her. Just my opinion. Donald, apologize to the lady! She's right, and you're wrong. I'm serious. You messed up this time.

    A Canadian judge ruled this week that Omar Khadr poses no public safety threat. Tell that to the children of Sergeant First Class Christopher J. Speer and the surviving American soldiers who valiantly fought Khadr on the battlefield. In 2012, Khadr pleaded guilty, guilty, guilty, guilty and guilty to five charges related to the killing of Speer, a 28-year-old medic with the U.S. Special Forces. This young American hero died in Afghanistan in 2002 during an ambush by al-Qaida operatives. Just days before he gave his life, Speer had fearlessly walked onto a minefield to rescue two wounded Afghan children....

    Last week, Jeb Bush was in New Hampshire, pressing on with his sordid campaign to delude conservatives into swallowing Common Core and massive, unfettered immigration policies. He has fashioned himself a champion of the American worker, even as he pompously pushes Gang of Eight amnesty as the ďadultĒ plan in the room. And he has fashioned himself a champion of ďschool choice,Ē even as he zealously crusades for failed Fed Ed rackets and data-mining schemes masquerading as ďhigher standards.Ē The condescending Bush attitude is familiar to grass-roots activists and parents in Florida and across the country who have fought Club...

    COLORADO SPRINGS -- From the liberal media's coverage of my beautiful adopted hometown, you'd think we live in a KKK-infested hotbed where every person of color fears for his or her life. Take a look at these ominous headlines: --"Bombing of NAACP headquarters harkens to bad old days" -- MSNBC --"Colorado Springs explosion recalls violence against NAACP" -- The Washington Post --"NAACP Bombing Evokes Memories of Civil Rights Strife" -- Time magazine --"Explosion outside NAACP office could be a hate crime, officials say" -- Los Angeles Times Let me and my brown skin assure you, America: Bull Connor is not...

    Allow me to unite Americaís Left, Right, and Center in just three words: No, Jeb, No! Former GOP Florida governor Jeb Bush made the obvious official this week when he announced on Facebook and Twitter that heís ďactively exploringĒ a 2016 White House run. Of course heís running. Thatís what inveterate politicians do. Well, I hate to break it to Jeb, Inc. Thereís no popular groundswell for Bush Part III. None, zip, nada. Independents, progressives, and conservatives are all weary of the entrenched bipartisan dynasties that rule Washington and ruin America. Only in the hallowed bubble of D.C. and New...

    In his 967-word statement to the nation about the Ferguson grand jury decision on Tuesday night, President Obama devoted precisely one sentence to the risks and sacrifices police officers make to keep the peace. One. Obama delivered a tepid, obligatory acknowledgement that "our police officers put their lives on the line for us every single day." But he sandwiched it between a finger-wagging admonition that cops need to "show care and restraint" and a pandering discourse justifying the "deep distrust" that "communities of color" have toward law enforcement because of the "legacy of racial discrimination in this country." Note: Multiple...
  • The Spectacular Self-Immolation of Wendy R. Davis

    Wendy Russell Davis is on fire. And I don't mean that in a good way. I mean it in a five-alarm, set-her-own-skirt-aflame, billowing-human-torch kind of way. To say that Davis is smokin' hot is not a compliment. It's a campaign incineration status update. The Democratic darling of the Hollywood Left and glamour gal of abortion thought her path to the Texas governor's mansion would be a pink-sneakered walk in the park. Instead, her single-issue campaign has combusted. The high point of Davis' career came last year when she flamboyantly opposed state restrictions on late-term abortions in the wake of Philadelphia...
