  • You quoted the 10th Amendment. Why? It cannot possibly be made relevant, except by the addition of "or its enclaves". I know what quotation marks mean, but some of our fellow posters have track ...
  • BS. The legal concept of bias is NOT that the judge cannot have, or express, an opinion on the broad social issue that a case arises from. The reason is that the courts are concerned with ...

    ... that Thom has also said that if you are mainly using the 24-85mm range you are doing it wrong.  The reason he has given is that mid-range focal lengths tend to produce dull photographs, and ...
  • You guys have been pursuing this and other stories for years, and not a single instance of anything resembling dishonesty or corruption has been exposed. There is always evidence that is about to be ...
  • The Constitution does not contain the words "or to its enclaves". And your addition is irrelevant: the "exclusive" power to legislate "in all cases whatsoever" in DC is reserved to the Congress ...
  • The phrase "all cases whatsoever" covers marriage; if the founders had intended it not to, they would have added, "except marriage". The only agenda it carries is insistence that the actual, real ...
  • It is obviously absurd to suggest that judges cannot have opinions about an issue like same sex marriage.  The issue - as it is for potential jurors - is whether they can put aside their opinions ...
  • Mr Blumenthal is not a Government employee.  He is a guy who worked on Hillary's campaign in 2008 and moved on to doing business in Libya. He had contacts there and they sometimes told him things ...

  • Replied in Another lie.
    The story has no source other than Mohammad Daoud Oddeh, known as Abu Daoud.  He said in 1999 that the Munich attack was his idea, but that it was not planned to involve bloodshed and Abbas ...
  • John McCain is also foreign born - which is why the birthers kept quiet until after the election in 2008.
  • The Robb-Silverman Commission was expressly forbidden from considering how policy-makers used the intelligence they received - whether the administration lied. So Silberman has no more basis than ...
  • Then answer the question.

    Well, if you call the US Senate's report on intelligence about the war "popular buzz", sure. It documents in detail that repeated CIA and DIA reports found that Saddam and al Qaeda had no material ...
  • The decision to invade Iraq was approved by Congress, but not the decision to ignore Afghanistan, which is its twin. Where I am it is behind a pay wall. I ain't paying to read the Wall Street Journal.
  • The fact that the administration, with the connivance of the media, was able to create a climate in which it was politically difficult to dispute the WMD claims, and very few politicians had the ...
  • In March 2003 the UN weapons inspectors said that "... the numerous initiatives, which are now taken by the Iraqi side with a view to resolving some long-standing open disarmament issues, can be ...
  • The fact that Saddam once had WMDs  - and used them - is not in dispute.  So pointing to intelligence reports saying he did given to Clinton is irrelevant.  There was no intelligence suggesting he ...
  • Replied in Original sin.
