Latest Bush Items
President Bush has invested the bulk of his dwindling political capital to push through an unpopular immigration-reform bill, which is being seen as a last-ditch effort during his remaining 19 months in office to leave behind a domestic achievement.
THE WASHINGTON TIMES The Senate voted Tuesday to resurrect its immigration bill, overcoming opposition from conservative Republicans and setting up a week of showdown votes on amendments and passage.
ONLINE EXCLUSIVE / 4:50 p.m. President Bush challenged Muslim leaders to do more in denouncing Islamic terrorists during a speech today at the same Washington, D.C., mosque in which he said, six days after the September 11 attacks, that Islam is peace.
If you were a member of the U.S. Congress and you wanted to hand a victory to Fidel Castro, his authoritarian buddy, Hugo Chavez of Venezuela, and the international drug gangs, you could do so by voting to reject the U.S.-Colombia Trade Promotion Agreement. Improbable as it may seem, that is precisely what the Democrat leaders of Congress threaten to do.
Three Supreme Court rulings this week show the difference President Bush's two pivotal court appointments have made. It is easy to lose sight of the difference in the current political climate. With the appointment of Justice Samuel Alito in 2005 to replace the retiring Sandra Day O'Connor, a conservative majority became a working reality on a great many current and future issues.

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — A 6,000-strong army of young women wielding bamboo sticks and covered from head to toe in black is vowing to enforce the Islamist moral vision of their teacher, Abdul Rashid Ghazi.
Virginia lawmakers are establishing a commission to investigate the effects of illegal aliens on the state, as a result of their frustration with Congress' inability to agree on a comprehensive federal policy.
President Bush will challenge Muslim leaders to denounce acts of terrorism committed in the name of Islam during a speech today at the same Washington mosque he visited days after the September 11 attacks.
