"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

Moon Bat of The Week Award!

Senator Russ Feingold (D-WI)
Senator Feingold is a third-term Senator from a swing state, who has all but announced his intention to run for the Democratic Presidential nomination in 2008. He was the first major Democrat to call for the U.S. to withdraw from Iraq. He is now calling for censure of President Bush. As a legal matter, Mr. Feingold's censure proposal is preposterous. The National Security Agency wiretaps were disclosed to Congressional leaders, including Democrats, from the start. The lead FISA court judges were also informed, and the Attorney General and Justice lawyers have monitored the wiretaps all along. Despite a media drumbeat about "illegal domestic eavesdropping," Mr. Bush's spirited defense of the program since news of it leaked has swung public opinion in support.
This is a prelude to impeachment if the Democrats win congress in the fall elections. Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) wrote four legal scholars late last year asking if the NSA wiretaps were impeachable.
John Conyers, the ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, has introduced a resolution calling for the creation of a "select committee to investigate the administration's intent to go to war before congressional authorization, manipulation of pre-war intelligence, encouraging and countenancing torture, retaliating against critics, and to make recommendations regarding grounds for possible impeachment."
The moon bat brigade is starting early, floating censure for possible impeachment. Voters would be wise to view Democrats as having only one plan if they gain control in congress. Other than embarrassing a war time President for using his power to protect America, Liberals have no plan.
