KEN STARR PLAYS FOR THE OTHER TEAM
There is an old saying that, if you have a reputation for
being an early riser, you can sleep until Noon.
Kenneth W. Starr, who served in the Justice Department under
Presidents Reagan and George H. W. Bush, has a totally undeserved reputation
as a Constitutional conservative.
It was Starr who recommended the appointment of Sandra Day
O’Connor to the Supreme Court, failing to disclose to President Reagan her
consistent pro-abortion record as a state senator and feminist activist in
It was Starr who misdirected the investigation of Bill
Clinton during Congressional consideration of impeachment and conviction.
Clinton owes his exoneration from conviction as much to Starr as to anyone
There are other examples of Starr’s role as an establishment
conservative, always available to sell out our cause to the powers that be.
The latest example of this is the unconstitutional proposal
to grant voting representation to the District of Columbia in the U.S. House
Starr, who is a former Federal appellate judge and former
independent counsel, says he has analyzed the D.C. vote bill and believes it
to be Constitutional.
Personally I prefer the plain language of the Constitution
to the slanted opinions of Kenneth W. Starr.
Here is what the Constitution has to say:
Article I. Section Two. "The House of
Representatives shall be composed of Members chosen every second Year by the
People of the several States".
Article I. Section Eight. "The Congress shall have
Power…To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such
District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of particular
States, and the Acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of
the United States".

JOHN SCHROTE WAS A COURAGEOUS AMERICAN PATRIOT
I lament the passing of my beloved friend, John E. Schrote,
who served as my principal assistant when I was Director of the United
States Office of Economic Opportunity (OEO) in 1973, and in the previous two
years when I functioned as Special Assistant to the Director and Associate
Director of OEO for Policy Review.
John was a principled and courageous conservative who made a
difference wherever he worked.

GENERAL PACE IS CORRECT: HOMOSEXUAL CONDUCT IS IMMORAL
Congratulations to General Peter Pace, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of
Staff, for his courage in stating frankly that, in his opinion, homosexual
conduct is immoral.
It is a tragedy that this statement of the truth has put General Pace in
the eye of another storm with criticism being directed against him by
homosexuals and homosexual sympathizers in politics, in the media, in the
arts and entertainment world, and elsewhere.
It is hard for the Vice President of the United States to defend General
Pace, given Cheney’s approval of the homosexual lifestyle of one of his
Every one of us should drop a note to General Pace thanking him for his
courageous statement based on God’s truth.
In an interview with the Chicago Tribune, General Pace said that
his upbringing taught him "certain types of conduct are immoral" citing
adultery, as well as homosexuality.
According to The Washington Times (3/14/07), more than 100 lawyers
have signed on to a bill that would allow homosexuals to serve openly in the
military, but according to General Pace "Saying that gays should serve
openly in the military, to me, says that we, by policy, would be condoning
what I believe is immoral activity."
Virginia Senator John Warner who himself has led an immoral lifestyle in
certain respects rebuked General Pace saying "I respectfully but strongly
disagree with the Chairman’s view that homosexuality is immoral".
Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates rebuked Pace by saying "personal
opinion really doesn’t have a place here".
Senator John McCain, in a wimpish observation, told reporters in
California that the General "should be given a chance to explain himself".

MAX HUGEL WAS A CONSERVATIVE PATRIOT
During the 1980s, I worked closely with Max Hugel, a
businessman who helped guide Ronald Reagan’s 1980 Presidential campaign in
New Hampshire and then briefly served as Deputy Director of the CIA in 1981.
Max died February 19 at his
home in Ocala, Florida.
