Democrats say “Bush’s War” Oh yeh?

Posted on October 29, 2007 | Filed Under In My Opinion...

These cretins would have everyone believe that the idea Iraq had WMD’s was Bush’s idea. The entire premise of the Iraq war was not about removing a dictator and his psychopathic, murdering sons - but about Iraqs program of WMD’s. They claim - falsely - that NO WMD’s have been found in Iraq. In fact there have been stocks of chemical warheads found. Obviously much of the stuff was moved to Syria (satellite flyovers RECORDED truck caravans heading towards Syria) before the shooting started when Saddam realized he was going to get hit.

Now … the same Democrats, who saw the exact same intelligence as the President, and came to the exact same conclusion that Iraq was in fact conducting a WMD program NOW say Bush was wrong about the entire thing.

Bullshit. To coin a well known phrase, “

Now tell me whose full of shit.

The Dems “Income Tax Overhaul”

Posted on October 25, 2007 | Filed Under In My Opinion...

You just have to love those cretins.

Today, Charles Rangel announced the Dems sweeping overhaul of the federal income tax. Is it an overhaul? Does it fix the inherent inequities in the income tax system? Does it streamline, or in any way reduce the millions of dollars people spend every year trying to figure out the ever changing tax laws?

No. It increases taxes. Period.

Charlie Rangel is a race baiter in the mold of Jesse Jackson. The difference is Rangel plays his race game under the guise of law. The man who never misses the opportunity of playing one race against another - of the divisive politics of “economic equality” - once again plays to the “why should I work for a living - let someone else do it!” crowd of welfare cheats and multi-generational whiners who live off the work and success of others.

How typical - of both Rangel and the Democrat party. The link to Chairman McCrery’s statement is in the header as usual.

RE:

TO: Republican Members, Republican Staff
FROM: Ways and Means Committee Ranking Member Jim McCrery

My Friends,
At a bipartisan Ways and Means caucus last night, Chairman Rangel outlined his long-awaited “Mother of All Tax Hikes” legislation. The basics of the package are simple: This is the largest individual income tax increase in history.

In another blow to the Democrat party and their support for open borders-amnesty -Harry Reid’s attempt to push anotheramnesty bill through - the DREAM Act - has failed cloture. Could it be the morons are finally getting the picture here?

The DREAM Act was just another attempt to give amnesty and legitimize ILLEGAL aliens and their offspring through a back door - at our expense. Sure - the usual RINO’s showed us (again) where their loyalties lie (not to the USA, obviously), but surprisingly - a few Democrats bolted from their leadership and joined with the Republican minority in voting this sham down.

So for now - another ill-conceived amnesty bill has been stopped. But as others have said … CONSTANT VIGILANCE is needed to keep up with what the party of defeat is trying to push past the public - they will be back with yet another variation of an amnesty bill sure as hell. And if that bill is defeated - Reid and his traitorous cohorts will try again. And again. Note the RINO’s who voted in favor of this piece of shit - the same ones, over and over. Fuck’em - toss their asses out! Here is the Roll Call, with thanks to Michelle Malkin…

Seven Things to Know About the Clintons

Could you not see it coming? Is the Clinton march nearing the end of the road? Will we finally be rid of this blight on the American political landscape?

We can hope, can’t we?

WASHINGTON — This week, it was reported in the authoritative Capitol Hill newspaper, The Hill, that Don Van Natta Jr. and Jeff Gerth included some unsavory news about Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton in “Her Way,” their recent book about her. Hillary, during the 1992 presidential campaign, “listened to a secretly recorded audiotape of a phone conversation of Clinton critics.” Washington observers appeared shocked. Mein Gott, where have they been all these years? The Clintons have engaged in brute behavior for decades, much of it a matter of record. The Hill’s report moves me to list seven issues every American should know about the Clintons before 2008. Journalists should be particularly interested, as well as Democrats intent on avoiding a repeat of the Clinton 1990s.

Marine Barracks Lebanon remembered

Posted on October 23, 2007 | Filed Under In My Opinion...

It was 24 years ago today that Muslim fanatics - that wonderful “religion of peace” we’re always hearing about - launched a suicide attack on the US Marine Corps barracks in Beirut, Lebanon. 24 years, and we have apparently learned nothing. Ask anyone today “what is today the anniversary of?” and you will likely get answers similar to “gee … Britney Spears wedding to K-Fed?” That is the attention span of the average American. In the attack on the American barracks, the death toll was 241 American servicemen: 220 Marines, 18 Navy personnel and 3 Army soldiers. Sixty Americans were injured. This was the deadliest single-day death toll for the United States Marine Corps since the Battle of Iwo Jima (2,500 in one day) of World War II and the deadliest single-day death toll for the United States military since the 243 killed on 31st January 1968 — the first day of the Tet offensive in the Vietnam war. The attack remains the deadliest post-World War II attack on Americans overseas.

Narrative:

“On around 6:20 am, a yellow truck drove to , where the , under the of the , had set up its local headquarters. The truck had been substituted for a hijacked water delivery truck. The truck turned onto an access road leading to the Marines’ compound and circled a parking lot. The driver then accelerated and crashed through a fence around the parking lot, passed between two sentry posts, crashed through a gate and barreled into the lobby of the Marine headquarters. The Marine sentries at the gate were operating under their , which made it very difficult to respond quickly to the truck. By the time the two sentries had locked, loaded, and shouldered their weapons, the truck was already inside the building’s entry way.

The USMC barracks in Beirut

The detonated his explosives, which were equivalent to 12,000 pounds (about 5,400 kg) of . The force of the explosion collapsed the four-story cinder-block building into rubble, crushing many inside. It is said by a U.S. federal district court judge to have been the largest non-nuclear blast ever (deliberately) detonated on the face of the earth. According to in his history of the Marine landing force, “The force of the explosion initially lifted the entire four-story structure, shearing the bases of the concrete support columns, each measuring fifteen feet in circumference and reinforced by numerous one and three quarter inch steel rods. The airborne building then fell in upon itself. A massive shock wave and ball of flaming gas was hurled in all directions.”

Some of us will, thank God, NOT forget that attack on America and the deaths of 150 American Marines. We will not ALLOW it to be forgotten.

Please pause today for a silent prayer for all those Marines who lost their lives and others injured in this dastardly attack on America itself.

Just a few months after intense pressure from U.S. citizens triggered the rejection of President Bush’s comprehensive immigration plan, a compromise supported by Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass. – the DREAM Act proposal by Sen. Dick Durbin, R-Ill. – is being rushed through the Senate.
Durbin’s office refused to return a WND call requesting comment.

EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF FLORIDA IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
Thursday, January 10, 1963

Mr. HERLONG.
Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.

At Mrs. Nordman’s request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following “Current Communist Goals,” which she identifies as an excerpt from “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen:

CURRENT COMMUNIST GOALS

U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
Develop the illusion that total disarmament of the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.
Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.
Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.
Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)
Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
Do away with all loyalty oaths.
Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
Gain control of all student newspapers.
Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.
Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”
Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”
Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”
Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand.
Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use united force to solve economic, political or social problems.
Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.
Internationalize the Panama Canal.
Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction over nations and individuals alike.

During rendition of the national anthem when the flag is displayed, all present except those in uniform should stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. Men not in uniform should remove their headdress with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart. —

Turns out that isn’t the only way Barack Obama chooses to show he’s a different kind of Democrat.

Have a look at the photo from the October 1, 2007 edition of “Time.” It shows Obama, Hillary and Bill Richardson at the Steak Fry of Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) on September 17 in Indianola, IA during [according to the photo ] the National Anthem. Richardson and Clinton have their hands on their heart. But not Obama. Does he perhaps believe that, like wearing the flag pin, the hand on the heart isn’t “true patriotism”?

Seems Danny took exception to Fairplays jumping on his chest and dry humping his face, and thereupon tossed him over his head like a rag doll - his face planting itself on the floor and knocking out most of his front teeth.
Ho-hummm … got off easy, imo.

ITEM:
Atlanta, Georgia is almost out of potable drinking water. A few more weeks and it’s all gone. Same old story … Democrat mayor, Democrat state, no backup plan (ever heard of desalinization?) . I suppose we’re gonna see a rerun of NOLA here, with the Mayor demanding the feds step in to help. “By doing what?”, one might reasonably ask. “Well … I don’t know - but do SOMETHING!” Hell yeah - Lake Lanier is one of the primo bass fishing lakes in the country!
Ahem … God helps those who help themselves. These morons failed to do their jobs and now they will pay for it. Or rather - WE will, in the long run.

Algore hasn’t heard yet - he’s reveling in his Nobel “Peace Prize” - but he will soon enough. It’s O.V.E.R., fat boy.

Who knows - who cares! Stay out as long as you want. No big loss to society there.

ITEM:
“U.S. forces in Iraq discovered nearly 19 tons of explosives in a weapons cache north of Baghdad this week, one of the biggest finds of its kind”, the U.S. military said on Saturday. This according to Reuters. Apparently no US servicemen were killed that they could take glory in, as usual. When EOD blew the shit up, they should have waited until all the “embedded” media nitwits gathered around to take a good look. Oooh - that’s “hateful”, isn’t it!

Not a word from the ragheads since - until today. They now claim the jets were taken under fire, and “no damage” was done to the nuke chemical plant. Right. The Isreali fighter jocks are almost as good as our guys - if they dropped on those bastards they did damage. The word I got was the jets were in and out of that sand palace before they knew what the hell hit them. “Taken under fire” my ass.

ITEM:
New Yorks reprehensible fuckwad Governor Eliot “Never met a camera I didn’t like” Spitzer ordered state DMV officials to issue drivers licenses to ILLEGAL aliens last week. Today, Hillary said it was a “good idea.”
I guess we can have an idea what her immigration policy would be if, God forbid, she won the election.

ITEM:
Coming to you from the center of the “symbolism without substance” movement - The Peoples Republic of Kali-fornia - Los Angeles, San Francisco and Santa Barbara residents are being urged to switch off their lights for one hour on Saturday in the first such organized bid in the United States to promote energy saving. This is supposed to help conserve energy? I have a better idea … direct that bunch of self-important, bloviating, scumbags to shut the fuck up for a day. THAT would go a long way towards decreasing their “carbon footprint.”

Rush scores - Reid takes credit

Posted on October 19, 2007 | Filed Under In My Opinion...

In a well publicized slap at Harry Reid and his merry band of lefty traitors, Rush Limbaugh called their bluff and hosted an eBay auction for the actual signed letter from Reid, an autographed picture of himself holding the letter, and a letter of authenticity. In addition - he made the astounding announcement that he would MATCH whatever amount the auction pulled in out of his own pocket. The proceeds of the auction would go 100% to a charity for widows and orphans of Marines and law enforcement officers - a noble cause indeed.

Well, the auction ended this morning, and the winning bid was an unbelievable $2,100,000.00! Matched by Rush, that is $4, 200,000.00 going to this worthy charity.

So what happens later today? The despicable scumbag Reid takes the floor of the Senate and TAKES CREDIT for the money raised!

Limbaugh chastises senator for attempting to ‘horn in’ on charity effort

A final secured a letter from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid that demanded an apology from radio talk host Rush Limbaugh over his “phony soldiers” comment.

On his show today, Limbaugh announced the winning bidder was Betty Casey, a noted philanthropist and trustee of the Eugene B. Casey Foundation in Gaithersburg, Md. It was the largest bid ever in an eBay charity auction, breaking the $800,000 mark paid for a Harley Davidson motorcycle bearing the signature of “Tonight” show host Jay Leno.

“The Eugene B. Casey Foundation believes freedom of speech is a basic right of every citizen of this country,” the foundation said in a statement on the auction. “Their purchase of the smear letter was to demonstrate their belief in this right, and to support Rush Limbaugh, his views, and his continued education of us.”

Meanwhile, Limbaugh chastised Reid for taking credit for the money raised by the letter during .

Reid is trying to “horn in” on the effort, said Limbaugh, who pointed out the Nevada Democrat has not apologized for accusing him of smearing troops who opposed the Iraq war.

“Now he has the audacity to climb aboard this, praising the effort, saying he never knew it would get this kind of money,” Limbaugh said.

Directing his comments to Reid, Limbaugh said, “It wasn’t your letter that raised this money. It was your abuse of power that is responsible for raising this money.”

No surprise I’m a fan of the inimitable Ann Coulter - I just finished her latest book “If Democrats had any brains - they’d be Republicans”. A quick 2 day read. Similar to her last, “Godless”, “IDHAB-TBR” is a collection of anecdotes and snappy rejoinders sure to infuriate liberals. Which - after all - is exactly the point, according to Ann.

My latest read is Justice Clarence Thomas’ autobiography “My Grandfathers Son”. I heartily recommend this thought-provoking, extremely personal memoir. This is a must read for anyone who was revolted by the vicious personal attacks on Justice Thomas during his highly partisan and contentious nomination “hearings”.

Typical of the left. the so-called “hearings” were packed full of distortions and outright lies dredged up by liberal hitmen and flacks determined to keep a good and honorable man off the bench NOT because he had any skeletons in his closet (as they alleged), but because he would not follow the liberal standard for minorities as being beholden to the system long advanced by these liberals for his achievements. Achievements of his and his alone, gained not via the system but by hard work, perseverance, and integrity. They had to dredge up a lying feminist of his own race to try and make a last ditch effort to derail his nomination. The reasons for THAT should be obvious. It just wouldn’t do to have a white man or woman make obscene, uncorroborated allegations against a black man - that would leave them open to charges of racism! No - it had to be another black, and preferably a woman, since we know a woman would NEVER distort the truth for her own purposes. Except maybe (?) Hillary - but that’s another story. And of course a woman allegedly wronged has Ultimate Moral Authority and cannot be questioned. Except when allegations are made against a Democrat.

But Thomas would not bow to the lies and distortions of either his record or his integrity. He fought back, and eventually prevailed, and the Supreme Court is better for his presence and judgment.

Buy the book and read it. You will gain a newfound respect for this highly intelligent, humble, and dignified man.

Senator Tom Coburn, MD - The “real deal”

Posted on October 18, 2007 | Filed Under In My Opinion...

I’ve written about Senator Coburn before. He’s the real deal. He doesn’t yearn for higher office, and in fact has sworn to serve only 2 terms in the Senate. He has unmasked the hypocrisy of Newt Gingrich in his book “Breach of Faith”, and earned the wrath of Senators and Representatives from his own party because he puts principles above politics.

Well - the good Senator has pulled a fast one on his colleges. He came up with an amendment - S3358 - that put both parties between a rock and a hard place. An amendment they could not possibly vote against. Check this gem out!

Amendment 3358, which prioritizes health care for children over pork:

This amendment, “The Children’s Health Care First Act,” simply states that none of the funds appropriated or otherwise made available by this Act may be used for any congressionally directed spending item, or earmark, until the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services certifies that all children under the age of 18 years of age in the United States are insured by a private or public health care insurance plan.

Absolutely. Fucking. Brilliant.

Too bad this guy shuns higher office - I’d vote for him for POTUS in a heartbeat. How about a movement to draft him as, at the least, a Vice Presidential nominee?

Doesn’t matter that 60% of the American public think we are winning - or at least the outlook is brighter by the day. Nope - Fat-ass Murtha says we’re losing, so I guess we’re losing. can’t argue with an EX-Marine combat veteran who proclaims he has the Ultimate Moral Authority.

Hmmmm… maybe Murtha, Reid, and the rest of the lefty bloviators should have a chat with this guy, huh?

Ya think?

The only thing that annoys me is US forces only gave him a battalion coin as an award. At the least they should have found a fitting gong to hang on his chest. The guys a fucking HERO! Give him something to show off to others too timid to step up to  the plate.  Yes - I’m well aware a “coin” (token) is held in fairly high esteem within the military community as a symbol of “belonging”. But a representative gong would be even more respected by the Iraqi people at large. I think it’s rather unlikely that they know of the custom of unit challenge coins.

FORWARD OPERATING BASE KALSU, Iraq – A 72-year-old man stopped a suspected suicide bomber from detonating himself at a checkpoint in Arab Jabour Oct. 14.

The man approached a checkpoint where Mudhehr Fayadh Baresh was standing guard, but did not make it very far.

Baresh, a tribal commissioner and member of the Arab Jabour Concerned Citizens program, said he ordered the man to lift his shirt - using training received from Coalition Forces - when he did not recognize him as a local villager.

The suspect refused to lift his shirt. Baresh repeated the command again, and the suspect exposed his suicide vest, running toward the checkpoint.

Baresh opened fire which caused the vest to detonate, killing the suspect.

“I did it for the honor of my family and the honor of my country,” said Baresh, when he met with Col. Terry Ferrell, commander of the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division.

Lt. Col. Kenneth Adgie, commander of the 1st Battalion, 30th Infantry Regiment presented Mudher with a battalion coin for his valor Oct. 16.
