COSTA MESA — U.S. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Huntington Beach) on Tuesday defended an unusual trip he made to Honduras with now-Costa Mesa Councilman Jim Righeimer. The trip was discussed in U.S. diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks and published in The New York Times . "I'm a senior member of the Foreign Affairs Committee, and I was there to make sure that I fully understood all the forces that were in place in Honduras, and also to give legitimacy to the government that had been elected there," Rohrabacher told the Daily Pilot.

Paul Clinton NEWPORT-MESA -- Unhappy about criticism of President Bush's foreign policy, Rep. Christopher Cox (R-Newport Beach) lashed back at leading Democrats this week. Cox aimed his comments most pointedly at Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle (D-South Dakota). "Sen. Daschle and the party he leads are moving dangerously close to a new, more virulent strain of isolationism that renounces America's opportunity and responsibility to lead the world," Cox said in the statement.

EDITOR’S NOTE: We asked Reps. John Campbell and Dana Rohrabacher about the disputed reelection of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in Iran this past weekend. If we are to make things better with Iran, this is a pivotal moment. The good people there who are now standing up against the mullahs need to know we are on their side and the mullahs need to know we are on the side of their opposition. It’s time for the mullahs to go back to their mosques and let democracy take its rightful place in Iran.

THE WAR ON DRUGS Calls the war on drugs "insane" and says it should be stopped immediately. "When I was young and there was a big, expensive government program that didn't work, people would call for ending it." GUN RIGHTS Criticizes incumbent Rep. Christopher Cox (R-Newport Beach) for his lack of support for gun owners. "He's very tepid in his support of 2nd Amendment rights." The Libertarian argues that gun control laws don't prevent criminals from accessing guns and that gun ownership benefits the weakest members of society.

Deirdre Newman Bombs exploded on the UC Irvine campus Thursday as part of a rally against a potential war in Iraq. The bombs only rained down flour, and the soldiers throwing them at civilians were only students in costume.. But the fact that the flour coated anyone who stood in their way was meant to illustrate how innocent civilians would die if the U.S. bombed Iraq. About 150 passersby witnessed the war simulation created by 14 organizations on campus -- including the Society of Arab Students, Campus Progressive Alliance and Amnesty International -- to protest a possible war in Iraq and to advocate for a comprehensive change in American foreign policy that champions freedom and democracy.

Deirdre Newman NEWPORT BEACH -- At 5:45 a.m. Tuesday morning, Newport Harbor High School teacher Phil D'Agostino's lesson plan for his U.S. history classes imploded in a cloud of smoke. Instead of discussing the settlement of colonial America, D'Agostino spent the day with his classes watching history unfold and discussing the dramatic and unprecedented terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C., that have left an indelible imprint on the minds of Americans everywhere.

GOP Sen. Chuck Hagel of Nebraska, a potential presidential candidate, recently said that some lawmakers are suggesting impeachment proceedings for President Bush partly in reaction to his war policy. "Any president who says, I don't care, or I will not respond to what the people of this country are saying about Iraq or anything else, or I don't care what the Congress does, I am going to proceed — if a president really believes that, then there are — what I was pointing out, there are ways to deal with that," Hagel said.

On Feb. 23, The Chicago Council on Global Affairs came out with a report by a task force, “Engaging Religious Communities Abroad: A New Imperative for U.S. Foreign Policy,” which examined the importance of religion in American foreign policy. “The success of U.S. diplomacy in the next decade will be measured in no small part by its ability to connect with the hundreds of millions of people throughout the world whose identity is defined by religion,” Chicago Council officials said in releasing the report.

OK, I know that generalizations usually don?t work. But I will generalize here and pose that the definition of a Republican is a person who wants more government in our private lives, and a Democrat is one who wants more government in the marketplace. On the other hand, libertarians mostly want less government in both places. In that regard, numbers of times after I became a libertarian in 2003 I heard many people from all different political persuasions tell me that they too in many ways believe they also are libertarians.

Alicia Robinson Here's one thing Rep. Chris Cox won't be watching on television -- the CBS miniseries on President Ronald Reagan that the network relegated to Showtime after complaints from conservatives that the program was biased and inaccurate. Cox worked as White House counsel under Reagan from 1986 to 1988. "It strikes at a very beloved president in the twilight hours of his fatal illness," Cox said of the CBS miniseries. "Worse yet, it strikes at Mrs. Reagan, who is very much aware of what's going on while she's caring for him."
