    The New York Sun ^ | By BRIAN McGUIRE
    WASHINGTON — At least two Republican senators are poised to call on the White House to withdraw the nomination of Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court, a highly placed Republican Senate staffer told The New York Sun. The news came amid stepped-up criticism of Ms. Miers by conservative groups and Senator Schumer. The conservatives said they were upset by the emergence yesterday of two speeches in which Ms. Miers said that self-determination should guide decisions involving religion and the law, and in which she cited conservative bêtes noires Janet Reno and Justice Ginsburg as female role models. Mr. Schumer, the...

    Just before my last exchange with George Galloway, which occurred on the set of Bill Maher's show in Los Angeles in mid-September, I was approached by a representative of the program and asked if I planned to repeat my challenge to Galloway on air. That challenge—would he sign an affidavit saying that he had never discussed Oil-for-Food monies with Tariq Aziz?—I had already made on a public stage in New York. Maher's producers had been asked, obviously by a nervous Galloway, to find out whether I had brought such an affidavit along with me. I replied that this was not...

    I was prevented from attending a meeting last weekend that I organized in the U.K. on "How to Combat Terror Financing." Had I gone, I would have been in jeopardy due to British libel laws. I have been sued for libel in London by the Saudi billionaire Sheikh Khalid bin Mahfouz because my book, Funding Evil, documents how his charity, the Muwafaq Foundation, “transferred at least $3 million, on behalf of Khalid bin Mahfouz, to Usama bin Laden, and assisted al Qaeda fighters in Bosnia,” according to testimony of former National Security advisor Richard Clarke. Bin Mahfouz sued in London,...

    Six-year-old Aisha loves the orange blouse and jeans given to her by the kind woman who rescued her from the chaos of the Kashmir earthquake. She snuggles up to her, trying to forget the devastation of her village home and the deaths of her parents 15 days ago. What Aisha does not know is that the woman, Kausar, is a prostitute who has bought her from relatives for 50,000 rupees (£500) and plans to put her to work in the sex trade as soon as she reaches puberty. Aisha is not alone. According to welfare agencies, many of the hundreds...

    A smuggler arriving from Sydney has been caught at a New Zealand airport with almost $US1.3 million in counterfeit notes. Mustafa Yousif Ibrahim was arrested at Auckland International Airport as he came off a flight from Sydney last night. Ibrahim was born in Sudan but is believed to have been made a New Zealand resident in the early 1990s after arriving as a refugee. A police summary of facts, presented in the Manukau District Court today, said the counterfeit money was found by customs officers as they searched Ibrahim's bags before he came through the entry gate at the airport....

    BARRETT BREAKTHROUGH? [Byron York] In the Senate tonight, a major development in the struggle to make public the final report of Independent Counsel David Barrett, the man whose investigation of former Housing Secretary Henry Cisneros began in 1995. The Senate voted to cut off funds to Barrett's office -- he has spent about $20 million on the investigation -- but more importantly, lawmakers required that Barrett's report be released to the public within 60 days of final passage of the law. The report has been finished since late last year, and its release has been delayed by lawyers for Clinton-era...

    Washington, DC ( -- A pro-life group that monitors corporate donations to Planned Parenthood says it wants Phillip McGraw, Ph.D, better known as Dr. Phil, to stop promoting the nation's largest abortion business. Dr. Phil's opinion on abortion is unclear the group says, but Life Decisions International is calling on him to stop touting the abortion business. LDI points to a recent Dr. Phil television program in which two viewers expressed opposing view on distributing condoms in school. Dr. Phil asked the guest who opposed condoms if she was persuaded by the view that teenagers will have sex anyway. The...
  • Why Clinton Wouldn't Call Out the Saudis: Not just the presidential library–also the '96 election

    Former FBI director Louis Freeh writes movingly of his disappointment that President Bill Clinton did little or nothing to intervene with the Saudi monarchy to let his agents question the accused perpetrators of the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing. But he is at a loss to understand the president's conduct. In an earlier terror attack, the Saudis had cut off the heads of the suspected terrorists before the FBI could question them. To avoid a repeat, Freeh went to the president and emphasized the importance of intervening with the Saudis to allow questioning. The Saudis, of course, didn't want the FBI...

    The Washington Post ran a story on September 16 about oral sex being prevalent among teens, citing a new study by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). The story by Laura Sessions Stepp quoted Kristin Moore of a group called Child Trends as saying, "If a substantial number of young people are having oral sex, as these numbers indicate, this is a big concern." But why was this happening? It just so happened that a former U.S. president by the name of Clinton was in the news at the same time, hosting a "Global Initiative" featuring media top brass...

    Tiny Dots Show Where and When You Made Your Print San Francisco - A research team led by the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) recently broke the code behind tiny tracking dots that some color laser printers secretly hide in every document. The U.S. Secret Service admitted that the tracking information is part of a deal struck with selected color laser printer manufacturers, ostensibly to identify counterfeiters. However, the nature of the private information encoded in each document was not previously known. "We've found that the dots from at least one line of printers encode the date and time your document...

    Random thoughts on the passing scene: Neither the depth of despondency nor the height of euphoria tells you how long either will last. We are so easily deceived that many people think that the Senate Judiciary Committee is acting nicely if the Senators wear a genial expression while asking insulting questions or smile while they are lying about the nominee. Virtually no idea is too ridiculous to be accepted, even by very intelligent and highly educated people, if it provides a way for them to feel special and important. Some confuse that feeling with idealism.

    <p>In this memorable ending sequence from this 1979 Al Pacino film, Pacino as a defense attorney tired of the system, gives a great, over-the-top performance in this final scene. After learning the truth about the client he is defending, he turns on him in his opening remarks, which are wonderfully scripted. He discovers that this man, who holds a public office and is supposed to stand for something, did actually rape the woman. "The prosecution is not going to get that man today ... cause I'm gonna get him!" "That man should go to right to f***ing jail!" The whole courtroom erupts and as the judge admonishes Pacino saying "You're out of order", Pacino delivers one of his most famous lines "You're out of order! He's out of order! This whole trial is out of order!" "If this man walks free, then there's something really wrong going on here." It's a powerful and stunning moment revealing a man who couldn't take the deceit and deal-making of being a defense attorney and defend the guilty, and because of Pacino's incredible star power, it makes the scene even more memorable.</p>

    A TOBACCO chewing, horse-riding, cowboy boot wearing politician called George could be the Republican party’s choice for president in 2008. With George W Bush in political freefall, speculation is intensifying about his successor. The rising star among conservatives is George Allen, senator for Virginia and former governor of the state. The son of a famous American football coach, Allen is a minor figure compared with prominent rivals such as Senator John McCain and Rudolph Giuliani, the former mayor of New York, but he is more politically mainstream and potentially acceptable to Republican stalwarts. Bruce Allen, general manager of the Tampa...

    Washington—Harriet Miers was brazen and defiant, not asking President Bush to withdraw her nomination to the Supreme Court despite sharp criticism from some of Bush’s conservative allies, practically telling conservatives to go take a flying leap. Bush’s bold, religious decision to nominate Miers—his White House counsel and a longtime adviser for the Supreme Court—has divided his supporters, many of whom wanted a nominee with a clear record of understanding of the Constitution, as well as abortion and other lame conservative issues. Miers left no clues to her position on abortion or any basic understanding of Constitutional law when she served...
