Zacarias Moussaoui may get death sentence

Zacarias Moussaoui. The “20th Highjacker”…

“His arrest on Aug. 16 poses one of the great what-ifs of the war on terrorism—the possibility, remote but tantalizing, that FBI agents working in Minneapolis might have discovered the Sept. 11 hijacking conspiracy before it happened.”….

AS NEWSWEEK.MSNBC.COM REPORTED on Oct. 1, the FBI’s own lawyers decided in early September that the evidence against Zacarias Moussaoui wasn’t strong enough to justify a search warrant and the investigation stalled. But this week’s sweeping federal indictment alleges that Moussaoui was indeed part of the hijacking plot—he was supposed to be the 20th hijacker, according to the Feds—and makes him the primary defendant in the U.S. attempt to convict Al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden before the court of world opinion.

Hillary is (apparently) concerned with what Jesus thinks (sometimes)

Democratic Sen. Hillary Clinton used Jesus to argue against a House immigration bill that would make illegal presence in the United States a felony.

“It is certainly not in keeping with my understanding of the Scriptures,” Clinton said, according to the Associated Press, “because this bill would literally criminalize the Good Samaritan and probably even Jesus himself.”

Clinton delivered her remarks as the Senate prepared to take up a version of the measure, which passed the House in December.

It’s interesting that she is now concerned about the teachings of Jesus since she has previously voted for pro-partial birth abortion rights. Did she always have WWJD on her mind?

Breaking News: Bush’s poll numbers DOWN!

Breaking news! (not really)

First there was CBS and their rigged poll a few weeks ago showing the president at 34%. Then some other outfit came out with a poll that showed the president at 39% and yet they said, “In his lowest performance numbers ever, the president today in a personal approval, the presidential approval number is 39%.”

From Rush Limbaugh (March 14, 2005):

Everybody said, “Wait a minute! Last week you said it was 34%.” Okay. Now you’ve got this CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll, and their poll says that the president is “the lowest he’s ever been rated,” 36%. Now, this is in their own polls. They don’t specify that, yet when that CBS poll came out, they all reported it. They couldn’t wait to report it. It was one of these stories that just got pounded and pounded and pounded, and as each company or network came out with its own poll that showed a different number, they automatically forgot the 34% CBS number and focused only on their own poll showing the president had “never been lower,” when everybody knew that you had just reported he was lower — and this is why there’s just confusion.
