Robert Bluey of Human Events has written a story on what the nation can expect from incoming Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada) which includes this quote from yours truly, based upon my first-hand experience dealing with the man when I was living in Las Vegas: “This guy (Reid) will talk a good (bi-partisan) game, but he is as partisan as they get and just as mean. No one should be mistaken about that nice, quiet demeanor of Reid's. He can really lull you into a sense of security, but he'll turn around and bite you really fast."

“The Pentagon has agreed to warn military bases worldwide not to directly sponsor Boy Scout troops, partially resolving claims that the government has engaged in religious discrimination by supporting a group that requires members to believe in God. The settlement announced Monday is part of a series of legal challenges in recent years over how closely the government should be aligned with the Boy Scouts of America, a venerable organization that boasts a membership of more than 3.2 million members.”

“ABC Television broadcast a movie (“Saving Private Ryan”) during family viewing hours that contained more than 20 mentions of the 'F' word and nearly as many mentions of the 'S' word. There is no question that the show violated the federal indecency and profanity prohibitions… [The movie] contains so many sexual references, including repeated mentions of the 'F' word that it should have been scheduled after 10 PM, when FCC indecency and profanity laws do not apply. Or ABC could have used technology which it has to remove those references from the movie. No one would argue that the 'F' word is a central part of this epic film."

“...If the FCC does not enforce indecency law in this incident, its very enforcement authority will be undermined and the networks will challenge all future indecency/profanity rulings as arbitrary."

- Tony Perkins, Family Research Council


“Donald Wildmon, the leader of some group called ‘The American Family Association’ has decided that he is going to file complaints with the FCC over the showing of ‘Saving Private Ryan’ on Veteran's Day. . . . Donald Wildmon might be surprised to learn that our soldiers wading through withering German machine gunfire didn't yell ‘Golly!’ or ‘Gosh darn it!’ when they saw their friends fall. They didn't exclaim ‘Nuts!’ when caught in a German ambush.

“...No doubt Wildmon was prompted to take this action by the pathetic TV executives who decided that their stations wouldn't carry the showing of ‘Saving Private Ryan’ last week. When it came to defending the concept of free speech and standing up for the veterans of World War II, these men and women were AWOL. They are in the same league with Donald Wildmon.”

- Talk show host Neal Boortz

“Congressman Chris Cannon of Utah openly advocates for illegal alien migrants with his support of amnesty for illegals, Dream Act, Ag Bill and outright invitation to break the law. He requested for political contributions from illegal aliens during his campaign for Congress this year. He was celebrated by the Mexican-American Legal Defense Fund, which is one of the most anti-American, pro illegal alien organizations in America.

“To show you HOW out of touch with reality he is, I interviewed him by phone and he said the United States could hold at least a billion people. That is his plank—to grow the USA into one billion people. This shows his lack of knowledge of carrying capacity or what any farmer knows as the Tragedy of the Commons. The man lacks the collective intelligence of a patch of geraniums.”

- Author and columnist Frosty Wooldridge


(Note: The following is primarily for the benefit of Nevadans who are watching the ongoing witch-hunt against Republican state Controller Kathy Augustine, who was hit with three articles of impeachment last week over charges that her office staff did campaign work for her in 2002. It was sent to Nevada newspapers last week.)

Dear Editor:

With the impeachment of state Controller Kathy Augustine now official, perhaps this would be a good time to put things in a little historical perspective. Here's a sample of impeachments in American history:

* John Pickering, U.S. District Court for the District of New Hampshire: Impeached by the U.S. House of Representatives, 1803, on charges of mental instability and intoxication on the bench.

* West H. Humphreys, U.S. District Court for the Middle, Eastern, and Western Districts of Tennessee: Impeached by the U.S. House of Representatives, 1862, on charges of waging war against the U.S. government.

* President Andrew Johnson: Impeached by the U.S. Congress, 1868, on charges of violating the Command of the Army Act and libeling Congress.

* Mark H. Delahay, U.S. District Court for the District of Kansas: Impeached by the U.S. House of Representatives, 1873, on charges of intoxication on the bench.

* Harry E. Claiborne, U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada: Impeached by the U.S. House of Representatives, 1986, on charges of income tax evasion.

* Gov. Evan Mecham: Impeached by Arizona House of Representatives, 1988, on charges of obstruction of justice, filing false sworn statements and misuse
of funds.

* Alcee L. Hastings, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida: Impeached by the U.S. House of Representatives, 1988, on charges of perjury and conspiring to solicit a bribe.

* Walter L. Nixon, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Mississippi: Impeached by the U.S. House of Representatives, 1989, on charges of perjury before a federal grand jury.

* Kathy Augustine, Controller, State of Nevada: Impeached by the Nevada State Assembly, 2004, on charges of having office staff stuff campaign envelopes and mail out fundraising invitations.

Umm, does the phrase "doesn't rise to the level of impeachment" ring any bells here?

Censure? Maybe. But removal from office? Come on. Not even Bill Clinton was removed from office when impeached in 1998 after being caught dead-to-rights committing perjury and obstruction of justice. Indeed, it was Nevada Sen. Harry Reid who maintained at the president's trial that "the crimes alleged do not rise to the level of an impeachable offense."

And Augustine's do?
