SEN. CORNYN ON SPECTER FIGHT [KJL]
From the Senate floor today:
And I want to say something to my constituents and the people who may be listening who have contacted my office in very sincere concern for what they have seen played out here on the Senate floor and in the judicial confirmation process. I want to say to all of them, I appreciate your passion. I appreciate your concern. I appreciate your interest in the instruments of the government that ultimately the people of this country control. And we are going to need the involvement, the attention, the passion of all of the people.Translation: They heard you. This is just one battle in a larger fight, and some good things came of it. And it's just warm up for much uglier battles to come.

BY THE WAY [KJL]
There's some important stuff in that Specter statement. Those Judicary Committee Republicans did some real work: --"I have already registered my opposition to the Democrats' filibusters with 17 floor statements and will use my best efforts to stop any future filibusters. It is my hope and expectation that we can avoid future filibusters and judicial gridlock with a 55-45 Republican majority and election results demonstrating voter dissatisfaction with Democratic filibusters. If a rule change is necessary to avoid filibusters, there are relevant recent precedents to secure rule changes with 51 votes."
And, important for FMA supporters: --"I have long objected to the tactic used in bottling up civil rights legislation in the Judiciary Committee when it should have gone to the floor for an up-or-down vote. Accordingly I would not support committee action to bottle up legislation or a constitutional amendment, even one which I personally opposed, reserving my own position for the floor."
Those committments would not have been made without people calling in and e-mailing. Good job, folks.

I WAS BETTER THAN W. ON TERROR [Michael Graham]
Here's the verbatim from Bill Clinton's ABC interview, airing tonight: "We had 9/11 style threats for the millennium and teh extent of our preparations and the work we did, and number of terrorists we brought to justice...the twenty Al Qaeda cells we broke up...if you look at all that and the fact that we apparently still came closer to getting Bin Laden than anybody has since, even though they had a lot more options, military options than we had, I feel, I wish I had gotten him."
The reference to coming closer to getting Osama is particularly offensive given that Clinton has three opportunities to capture or kill him and declined all three times. Uh, Mr. Clinton, that's not a terror-fighting success. That's a failure.

OUR EUROPEAN BETTERS [KJL]
Just got an interesting e-mail from a reader:
Yesterday the national soccer teams of England and Spain met in Madrid. England has several black players. Throughout the match the Spanish fans in, full voice and in vast numbers, made monkey noises every time a black player on the English team touched the ball. To those not familiar with European soccer this is a shock but the conduct is quite common in many cities in Europe during matches. It is so common that the European Football Association has a campaign in place to try and stop the practice. If you take a look at today's Guardian it has several accounts of the racist conduct during the match.

From another good reader:
In the days of Wild Bill Donavan there was very little bureaucracy; just enough analytical and clerical staff to get the job done. Further, every task taken on was executed with the approval of, and in support of the President and his policies. OSS had many successes in those days and very few failures. Also, they never "spoke out of school".

clifford...when i was in Cambodia in the mid-seventies, an 'attache' at the embassy approached me for info on what was going on out in the outlying towns...Battambang, Seam Riap and other places. i flew DC3's for a civilian airline hauling cargo, but why he asked ME, i didn't know until i talked to the chief pilot. he said those types were AFRAID to go out into the field, and needed grist for their reports back to Langley. i don't think it has EVER CHANGED IN THE LAST THIRTY YEARS. if you want to make it in the agency or state dept, i think you have to go along to get a leg up. you got 'em pegged.

WHY LABOR UNIONS LOSE MEMBERS [Jim Boulet]
Richard "Skip" Daly, business manager of the Laborers, Hod Carriers, Cement Workers and Miners Local Union 169, complains to The Nation:
They voted for a Republican who's got the biggest deficit spending ever; they voted against all of their self-interest. And the issue that came out in exit polling was "we voted on the moral values." What that says to me is, these people believe it's more important than their family's well-being that we don't have abortion. And, to me, that is an intolerance that we have not experienced in this country since we put into insignificance the Ku Klux Klan.Union leaders now think they have a right to impose the moral values of Massachusetts upon their red state members. Union membership continues to decline. There is a connection.
The student protesters of the 60's and 70's didn't all go to law school. Some joined the staffs of major labor unions. Soon, the unions funded by the dues of pro-American hard hats were pushing a McGovernite foreign policy abroad and political correctness at home. The hard hats lost interest. Wonder why?

GROUPTHINK WATCH [Andrew Stuttaford]
From an article in the New York Times reporting the stunning fact that Republicans are "outnumbered in academia" (who knew?):
One theory for the scarcity of Republican professors is that conservatives are simply not that interested in academic careers. A Democrat on the Berkeley faculty, George P. Lakoff, who teaches linguistics and is the author of "Moral Politics: How Liberals and Conservatives Think," said that liberals choose academic fields that fit their world views. "Unlike conservatives," he said, "they believe in working for the public good and social justice, as well as knowledge and art for their own sake, which are what the humanities and social sciences are about."
Somewhere, deep in the shallow, shallow mind of George P. Lakoff, ignorance and pomposity are fighting for control of his ideas. It remains unclear which will win.

I've gotten a few of these--they are evidently partially publicly funded, which, as this e-mailer points out, makes sense:
My admittedly rudimentary understanding of presidential libraries is that only the Archives aspect of the library is, in fact, publicly supported. For these libraries to be a legitimate destination for researchers, and any good at all, they incorporate the official government documents from the administration, and the archivests that go along with that. I don't think we would want the nation's archives doled out to a private group for whatever they might do with them.

Killing a prisoner in cold blood is one thing. Dealing with an adversary who does not recognize “the law of land warfare” is something else. This is an unfortunate incident but it is no war crime.

TAX REFORM [Ramesh Ponnuru]
I'd been hearing, even before the election, that the administration was looking at getting rid of the deduction for state and local taxes as part of its tax-reform package. I'm all for the policy: Why should low-tax states subsidize high-tax ones? Why should the federal government encourage states to have high taxes? But didn't tax reformers get their heads handed to them over this precise issue in 1985-86? Of course, there were more New York Republicans then to worry about.
The administration is also apparently looking at taxing employer-provided health insurance. Again, a good policy: that tax break has done a lot of damage to health-care markets over the years. And anyone who wants to get rid of the alternative minimum tax without swelling the deficit has to look at taxing health insurance: It's one of the few tax breaks that can generate the necessary funds. But again, there are obvious political risks here.

WHY WE LOVE BILL CLINTON [Michael Graham]
When it comes to Bill Clinton, some things never change. Today's Washington Post lead editorial is a reminder that the Clinton Library opening today was paid for, in part, by former-wanted-fugitive-turned-pardoned-millionaire Marc Rich.
The library cost $165 million to build, and as the WaPo notes, "we still don't know the sources of much of that money."
If you haven't read "Legacy" yet, this would be a good week to pick up a copy. The fact that President Clinton still can't (or won't) make a full disclosure of his actions while in office, and that his behavior has tainted even something as benign as a library, is the perfect memorial to his presidency.

MESA MISTAKE [Stanley Kurtz]
Here’s a remarkable ad from MESA, the Middle East Studies Association. According to this ad, MESA publications will not accept advertising “from defense and intelligence related agencies from any government.” So let’s get this straight. MESA’s members request and benefit from millions of dollars in federal subsidies under Title VI of the Higher Education Act. Higher education lobbyists have no problem telling Congress that our national security needs mandate ever higher subsidies. And Congress duly appropriates this money in an effort to stem the shortage of Arabic translators and area studies experts in our defense and intelligence agencies. Yet while taking this money on the pretext that it contributes to our national security, MESA members prohibit our defense and intelligence agencies from advertising in their publications. Then they try to pretend that they’re keeping out all defense and intelligence agencies, when it’s obviously the American government they’re trying to exclude. The public is getting taken to the cleaners by these professors. It’s time to wise up and reform Title VI.

RELIGION AT UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO [Stanley Kurtz]
The mail from yesterday’s posts on the University of Chicago seemed to center around the problems of the elephant and the glass. How you feel about the direction of the university depends a lot on which part of the elephant you’re touching. To libertarian leaning economists, the elephant feels pretty conservative. In many of the other social sciences, the elephant seems fairly uniformly leftist. Of course, the same is true at many universities. Then there’s the glass half full/half empty problem. One correspondent pointed to Jean Bethke Elshtain at the Divinity School as evidence that conservative scholars have a real presence at Chicago. A couple of other correspondent’s bemoaned the Divinity school as a place where actual believers are isolated and put upon by progressive skeptics. One of these pointed to Elshtain as the exception that proves the rule, arguing that she is in some respects marginalized. Here’s an interesting letter from a religious student with both an upside and a downside: “I completed an MA in social sciences at Chicago last year. If it's not enemy territory, I don't know what is. None of my friends were practicing any religion. Most were atheist or agnostic. Many were staunch followers of Saskia Sassen- in fact, she was their raison d'etre there. I can count the number of conservatives in my cohort on one hand. I think it was at a Paul Griffiths lecture that I realized something was deeply awry. A former U of C prof, now at UIC, Griffiths was speaking at the Div School on the benefit of having faith when teaching about... faith. The reaction was spectacular. As former colleagues could only spittle their disgust for this convert (he somehow found faith there and became a Catholic), he deftly handled them much as I would imagine C.S. Lewis handling atheists after a reading of Mere Christianity. There were walkouts. At the end of the year, one administrator whispered her faith to me, hoping I didn't deride her. When I told her I'm a practicing Catholic, she rejoiced, and then told me her boss always teased her about her "superstitions." I found one bright spot: the Catholic campus ministry, the Calvert House, run by Fr. Mike Yakaitis. A man with his theology doctorate, he can intellectually run with the big dogs. He's unusually (for a university) orthodox, which has won a following: he had to expand beyond his normal four masses a weekend to six this year, with an incredible freshman turnout. Not all hope is lost.”

MILITARY & THE NET [KJL]
One e-mail from a major:
1. Our professional military is extremely "wired". Staff officers are beginning to make use of the internet the way guys my age made use of our canteens.And another, which breaks your heart in parts:
Greetings K-LO!!! I served in the Sunni Triangle from July '03 untill April '04 with the Army Guard. I always knew the media was biased in the past, but it really slaps you in the face when you witness it firsthand. Let's get this straight: 1)Saddam was evil. 2)Iraqis lived in fear and with constant torture under Saddam. 3)Millions of Iraqis are incredibly grateful to the U.S. for removing Saddam. 4)Now those millions are working their butts off, and risking their lives to build a decent, modern society. These are all widely documented facts that I personally know to be true from my own experience. And yet, since I've gotten home, I am really shocked at how many people are completely unaware of these things. (maybe it's because I live in a blue state; MN) It disgusts me how many people honestly seem to think Saddam wasn't a big deal, or that we are killing more Iraqis then Saddam ever did. Many assume that since I was "Backdoor Drafted" through the Guard that I would not be proud of my service or the things we are accomplishing. How wrong they are. Actually meeting, and working with Iraqis convinces me more then anything else that they honestly are just normal human beings who have the capacity for peaceful governance, and prosperous industry like anyone else. Iraqi families DO deeply grieve for the million-plus that were murdered, tortured, or raped under Saddam's rule. It is wrong that our media so callously ignores that grief. There is such a huge contrast between actually being among a people,many of whom are missing limbs,or are covered in whip lashes, and yet have such a look of renewed hope and passion as they line up to volunteer to work for the coalition, compared to the medias' portrayal of Iraqis as bitter, and angry with Americans for upsetting their "security under Saddam". The contrast can literally make you sick. It has been my belief since I've returned home that the media really is our true adversary in Iraq. I'll support that statement: everyone admits that the terrorists in Iraq are not a serious military force, and that they simply don't have the strength to incur even a single military defeat on our forces. The only way they can win is through a political victory. They can win political victories by either forcing Iraq into sectarian civil war (which looks more unlikely with each passing day), or by the media's constant drumbeat of defeatism, and pessimism convincing a large enough portion of the U.S. that we are failing, forcing a premature evacuation. It is clear to me that the media's influence was by far the bigger of the two threats. However, I'm elated that our recent election has proven that the media has failed to persuade a majority of Americans into defeatism. This gives me true hope for the future, both in Iraq, and in America. Now, regardless of the fact that my friends and family seem to think I've been brainwashed by the military, and am secretly a paid employee of Haliburton, I can be happy about the direction our country is headed in, and proud of my service in Iraq. (By the way, I love the fact that they think I was "brainwashed", so much so that I carry a card in my wallet that proclaims me an Official Member of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy!!) Well, thanks for everything you guys are doing, and keep up the good work! You keep writing it, I'll keep reading it!!!

Peggy Noonan says "Ssssshhhhhhhh."
Peggy writes, "Conservatives have been angry with him for a long time and for good reason. They have expressed their unhappiness. They have made their point. Mr. Specter has been chastened and warned; the leadership of his party told him to fight for himself. He knows the Republican Party will expect him to support the nomination of judges free of a Roe v. Wade litmus test, or any litmus test, including a religious test. Many believe, and with reason, that a practicing Catholic isn't allowed to be a federal judge in America anymore. Mr. Specter will have to be more open-minded, more supportive, than he's been in the past. But he looks like a man who got the message, doesn't he? "
I agree, definitely, that he will probably be chairman if no further screw-ups on his part. And I take a chastened Chairman Specter as a partial victory for conservatism--but emphasis on partial. That said, conservatives, I think do have to be realistic. Specter is who he is, and the White House would be freer to be bolded, conservatively speaking, without him. That's just reality. One should not pretend otherwise. We would be better off if he were not chairman. That's reality, too, methinks.

Subscribing to the print edition--a completely different product, I should remind you, very little overlap is a way for you to financially support the whole NR enterprise, and get something in return--fortnightly, in your snail-mail box.

P.O.Y. PONDERING [Tim Graham]
Reuters is acting as Time's publicity agent on the Person of the Year selection process, noting in a story that their POY-picking panel includes "Time commentator Andrew Sullivan, NBC News anchor Brian Williams, activist Rev. Al Sharpton, Alessandra Stanley, television critic for The New York Times, and FBI agent Coleen Rowley, one of the 2002 Persons of the Year." Most of those are yes, Kerry-loving media liberals (this year including Sullivan), but...Al Sharpton? How on Earth does everyone have to include this guy in their little plans? Is he really an objective journalist at heart? No. He's still a Tawana-fraud-pushing, violence-urging, racial-ambulance-chasing embarrassment. Time should try a more reputable POY judge -- Anna Nicole Smith, or the host of "Fear Factor," or someone responsible for messing up the flu vaccine.
But the most amazing sentence in the Reuters story is this one, summarizing potential POYs Mel Gibson and Michael Moore: "Gibson was proposed for directing 'The Passion of the Christ,' a controversial film seen by many as anti-Semitic. Moore made 'Fahrenheit 9/11,' a film highly critical of the Bush administration which was a huge box office hit."
The real spit take in this sentence is that "Passion" was three times as huge as "Fahrenheit." So it really could be turned around this way: "Moore was proposed for making 'Fahrenheit 9/11,' a controversial film seen by many as anti-American. Gibson made 'The Passion of the Christ,' a film highly critical of the human sinner, which was a huge box office hit."
