A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Speaking of criminal lawyers: Lawyer Lynne Stewart, who was convicted of numerous terrorism-related charges is quickly becoming a cause celebre among leftists terror-supporters.

The National Lawyers Guild -- a bunch of America-hating lawyers -- is sponsoring a "National Day of Outrage" Thursday.


We will use this national Day of Outrage to both express our condemnation of the Lynne Stewart verdict and to draw attention to the government’s ongoing attacks on legal professionals who represent unpopular clients and causes. We urge chapters to use these actions as a call for more sustained, long-term action.


Stewart was convicted, among other things, of smuggling messages out of prison on behalf of a sheik terrorist (in violation of an agreement with the federal government) that instructed his followers to kill Jews.


Ms. Stewart was convicted on two counts of conspiring to provide material aid to terrorists, by making the views and instructions of Mr. Abdel Rahman available to his followers in the Islamic Group, a militant organization in Egypt with a history of terrorist violence. She was also convicted on three counts of perjury and defrauding the government for knowingly flouting federal prison rules that barred Mr. Abdel Rahman, a blind Islamic cleric from Egypt, from communicating with anyone outside his federal prison except for his lawyers and a wife.


Stewart faces 20 years in prison. She should be facing a firing squad.

You know that civil liberties in America are safe when groups like the National Lawyers Guild have time to protest the conviction of terrorist-enablers.
