The Wisdom of Robert Bork
Wall Street Journal, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 12/19/2012 8:09:23 PM

Editor´s note: The former federal judge, legal scholar and solicitor general Robert H. Bork, who died Wednesday at age 85, was a frequent contributor to the Journal´s opinion pages. An editorial appears nearby, and below are some selections from his work: "The Unpersuasive Bakke Decision," July 21, 1978 The decisive opinion [in Bakke] was Mr. Justice [Lewis] Powell´s, because the remainder of the court split evenly for and against the racial quota used by the Davis medical school for admissions. Justice Powell´s middle position—universities may not use raw racial quotas but may consider race, among other

RUSH: We´ll start here in my adopted hometown, Sacramento, California. It´s Robbie. Great to have you. Hi. CALLER: Hi, Rush. Last week you were talking about why my generation doesn´t have hope. I´ve been thinking a lot about that, and it struck me that for thousands of years of human history, for almost all the history of the United States, human beings have understood that we have a choice about how our lives are gonna play out, and we have a way to overcome our backgrounds, if we come out of a rough background. But a movement has been mounting. You´ve talked

RUSH: Yes. The Drive-By Media today is apoplectic. All the news that´s going on out there, and the Drive-Bys are beside themselves that I might actually moderate a presidential debate. And do you know why they´re worried about it? The NBC political reporter Mike O´Brien gave it up. They´re worried that I might end up picking the Republican nominee and not them. That´s what bothers them. I mean, get this. H.R., he gets on the train on the way in to work today and he goes into his favorite coffee shop. It´s not a Starbucks, is it? (interruption) It´s a local

RUSH: The Washington Post says, "Obama Rodeo Clown Incident Illustrates Nation´s Continued Racial Divide." Now, the purpose of this story in the Washington Post is to show what a bunch of redneck, right-wing, racist hicks were at the fair. One of the most telling signs that there were a bunch of redneck, right-wing, racists at the Missouri State Fair was this: "The Wednesday crowd at the fair, which lasts 11 days in remote Sedalia, was overwhelmingly white. Some vendors played right-wing talk radio from boom boxes at their tents." Weeeeeeell, there you have it.

On Thursday, the Washington Post’s revelation of thousands upon thousands of National Security Agency violations of both the law and supposed privacy protections included this fascinating detail: A “large number” of Americans had their telephone calls accidentally intercepted by the NSA when a top-secret order to eavesdrop on multiple phone lines for reasons of national security confused the international code for Egypt (20) with the area code for Washington (202). .

In "Beyond Good and Evil," Nietzsche observed that "a man´s maturity consists in having found again the seriousness one had as a child at play." Such might be the credo of the professional clown. Yes, the professional clown. If it never occurred to you to think of clowning as a full-blown "profession," that makes two of us. Reader, prepare to be educated. The occasion for the lesson is the kerfuffle over the Missouri rodeo clown who became this week´s Emmanuel Goldstein of the left when he performed a skit while wearing a mask of President Obama.

The Military Epidemics That Aren´t

There is a growing presumption in the West that war dehumanizes those who experience combat, or, in more extreme expressions, even those who only serve in the military. In this country, for example, journalist Robert Koehler writes of war itself as a "disease," one that produces a nearly infinite variety of violent "symptoms." The wars of the post-9/11 era, particularly in Iraq and Afghanistan, might seem to reinforce the point—the Abu Ghraib scandal, for instance, or atrocities committed by U.S. soldiers like Staff Sgt. Robert Bales, who murdered 16 Afghan civilians in March 2012. Then there are the supposedly high rates




Obama Policies Turning
Egypt Against U.S.
Washington Free Beacon, by Bill Gertz    Original Article

The Obama administration support for Muslim Brotherhood Islamists in Egypt is driving the powerful military there against the United States and toward Moscow, according to U.S. officials and reports from the region. The pro-Muslim Brotherhood stance is undermining decades of U.S. policy toward the Middle East state and prompting concerns that the United States is about to “lose” Egypt as a strategic partner, said officials familiar with intelligence reports. Disclosure of the concern over the administration’s policy failure in Egypt comes as a security crackdown on pro-Muslim Brotherhood supporters in Cairo resulted in scores killed. “The Obama administration’s blatant Islamist support is risking

This morning President Obama announced that he is cancelling this year’s joint military exercise with Egypt, Operation Bright Star. It’s a symbolic gesture intended to show that, should the army continue to pursue its present course, the White House may eventually decide to suspend military aid. But cancelling Bright Star also underscores American impotence. The administration reportedly warned Egypt’s military regime against a violent crackdown, an admonition to which, with 638 now confirmed dead after yesterday’s nationwide confrontations with Muslim Brotherhood supporters, the army obviously turned a deaf ear.

RUSH: Yesterday we had the story in the New York Times about the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Library and Massage Parlor, and it was a New York Times story, and it raised a number of questions, and those questions were dealt with and analyzed on this program. One of the points made was this foundation is running incredibly high deficits while bringing in millions and millions of dollars in donations. I connected the dots, and I came to the conclusion that one of the points of the story was that somebody is making out pretty well here in the

A YouTube video featuring an interview with former Obama bodyman Reggie Love was removed after his comments surfaced in news reports highlighting some private details from President Obama’s life in the White House. The video, posted by the Artists and Athletes Alliance YouTube account, featured a July 18 interview with Love and Jim Newton, the editor-at-large of the Los Angeles Times, during a lunch hosted by the Alliance with UCLA’s Luskin School of Public Affairs. A promotional still in the video describes the session as “a private briefing on decision making in the Oval Office with Reggie Love” The video only shows highlights

RUSH: Now, let´s go to Egypt and get this out of the way before we get to the health care Stack, ladies and gentlemen. Grab sound bite number four, because back in February of 2011, when this whole thing started, I made a point, or I made an observation. And I want to play for you what I said.

CHILMARK, Mass. — President Barack Obama is calling for an end to the violence in Egypt a day after 525 people were killed in protests across the country. Speaking from Martha’s Vineyard Thursday, the president strongly condemned security forces going after supporters of ousted Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi. “America cannot determine the future of Egypt, that’s a task for the Egyptian people,” Obama said. “We don’t take sides." Obama said that, due to the violence, the United States will cancel its bi-annual joint-military exercise with Egypt next month. He added that Egyptians blaming the U.S. for the violence will not help Egypt

President Obama´s former personal aide said Wednesday that the president was so "irritated" by controversy over his birthplace that he wanted to hold an "impromptu press conference" when he discovered the long-form version of his birth certificate, only to be dissuaded by his advisers. Reggie Love, the former body man to the president, told UCLA´s Luskin School of Public Affairs that the delay in producing the president´s birth certificate was because when "your parents don´t live together (and) you travel all over the world, documents get lost." "He wanted to just have an impromptu press conference, just walk in to

Questions have been raised over financial dealings within the Clinton family charity that may cause problems for Hillary Clinton´s possible 2016 presidential run. New reports have revealed that the Clinton Foundation has been ´in the red´ for years even though the charity has raised hundreds of millions of dollars each year, showing the high cost of running the worldwide charity. Former President Bill Clinton called in a team of lawyers to help examine the charity´s financial standing over a year ago and they drew some unsettling conclusions. A scathing article in The New York Times tells how the ´rotating board

Oprah Winfrey and her co-star in Lee Daniels’ The Butler Forest Whitaker appeared on Anderson Cooper 360 Thursday night to promote their film. During the interview, Anderson Cooper asked Winfrey to relate the historical themes of the movie to the modern day struggles for African-Americans, including the Trayvon Martin case. Winfrey said she “loves” the film in light of the discussion on race, because it “brings context” to the conversation. She described how the film begins with a lynching scene and ends with walking into President Obama’s office, showing how much has “happened in the span of one man’s lifetime

There is no way to sugarcoat it: Egypt stands on the brink of a bloody, nasty civil war, and, at the very least, sustained civil unrest and sectarian violence. The current confrontation between the Egyptian military and radical Islamists — led by the Muslim Brotherhood — will not end well and the MB and its allies will not go quietly. The Brothers — the original modern Islamic terror group and the ideological source of both al-Qaeda and Hamas — are in no mood to negotiate or compromise. Think about it: After decades of patience, stealth, and gradualism,

Former Obama "body man" Reggie Love spoke with interviewer Jim Newton during a lunch at UCLA´s Luskin School of Public Affairs on July 18, 2013. Highlights of this interview were briefly posted on YouTube Wednesday (August 13) before being removed because the audio embarrassingly noted that Love and Obama played 15 hands of spades during the bulk of the raid on the bin Laden compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. Love also commented on the release of Obama´s long-form "birth certificate," as follows:

The former CIA contractor, who is currently in Russia with temporary asylum, handed over an internal audit and other top-secret documents detailing the illegal behaviour. Most of the infractions involved unauthorised surveillance of Americans or foreign intelligence targets in the United States, both of which are restricted by law and executive order, The Washington Post said. They ranged from significant violations of law to typographical errors that resulted in unintended interception of US emails and telephone calls, it said. The Post said the documents it obtained were part of a trove of materials provided to the paper by Mr Snowden

The only surprise here is the source. The details are all too familiar: Employers around the country, from fast-food franchises to colleges, have told NBC News that they will be cutting workers’ hours below 30 a week because they can’t afford to offer the health insurance mandated by the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. “To tell somebody that you’ve got to decrease their hours because of a law passed in Washington is very frustrating to me,” said Loren Goodridge, who owns 21 Subway franchises, including a restaurant in Kennebunk. “I know the impact I’m having on some of

Sandra Fluke, a former "reproductive justice" advocate at Georgetown Law School, has a new mission: getting more women to run for elective office. In a brief interview on MSNBC Friday morning, Fluke was asked if Republicans are remiss in not asking more women to run for office. "I think there are a variety of concerns about how we get women into office," she responded. "It´s not only about asking women, which is something we need to do -- but also about making sure that the party leadership and those in elected office are looking for women to succeed them."

Americans continue to harken to the call of the bodacious, idyllic, post-war, big-finned, fabulous ‘50s. Given a choice of any decade in the century, the public would most want to live in the 1950s, this according to a new YouGov/Economist poll. The 1980s comes in second - with some interesting partisan divides between Republicans and Democrats over the decades. And the numbers: 18 percent of Americans would live in the 1950s if they could go back in time; 20 percent of Republicans and 14 percent of Democrats agree. 15 percent of Americans overall would chose to live in the 1960s;

Climate change will lock the world into more frequent and severe heatwaves in the next few decades, researchers have claimed. They say there will be a ´several-fold´ increase in heatwaves up to 2040, regardless of how much carbon dioxide goes into the atmosphere, but future efforts to slash pollution could stem the rise in extreme heat events later on in the century. The last decade has seen an exceptional number of extreme heatwaves around the world, hitting the U.S. in 2012, Russia in 2010, Australia in 2009, and Europe in 2003 with damaging impacts on health, the economy, agriculture and
