NewsMax.com: Inside Cover Story Most of the existing drafts of the White House's After-Action Millennium Plot Review were stolen from the National Archives and destroyed by former National Security Advisor Sandy Berger at least six months before the Sept. 11 Commission dealt with Millennium issues in interim staff conclusions and public hearings. Hopefully they will put him behind bars for this.

NewsMax.com: Inside Cover Story Very intersting poll here. Fifty-nine percent said they "are concerned" that Kerry "missed 70 percent of the votes in the Senate over the last two years." By a ratio of 51 percent to 31 percent, Massachusetts voters believe President Bush is "more decisive" than Kerry. Fifty-three percent say Kerry is "not a serious legislator" and more concerned about raising his national profile. By a better than 3-to-1 ratio, reponders think Kerry would raise taxes if elected president. By a margin of 70 percent to 15 percent, Kerry's constituents believe his running mate, John Edwards, "is more charismatic" than Kerry.

NewsMax.com: Inside Cover Story This is unbelievable. The 9/11 report believes what Clinton said. In its final report released Thursday, the 9/11 Commission said there was "no credible evidence" that the Sudanese offer had ever taken place – explaining that ex-President Clinton had "misspoken" when he described the offer in detail during a February 2002 speech. Then what about this: "I've been to Sudan. And I was in Khartoum and met with some of the higher-ranking people with the Sudanese government. They told me personally – I had heard that before – that they actually offered [him] up to the Clinton administration – that is, Osama bin Laden – if they wanted him." And this: But Sen. Shelby said Sudanese officials not only were prepared to arrest bin Laden, they were willing to "assassinate" him if necessary. "They thought it might be deemed an assassination if he resisted," Shelby said. "I think that would have been the right thing to do," he added. "We now know it would have been the right thing to do. If he's offered up, take him, because a year later, a year or so later, they blew two of our embassies up."

Please Pull the Janjaweed Out by its Roots

Please Pull the Janjaweed Out by its Roots It's suddenly hot topic number one among both the chattering classes and those who care about their fellow human beings: What to do about Darfur and the Janjaweed? In case you haven't been paying attention, Darfur is a region in the western part of the Sudan, and the Janjaweed, also spelled Janjawid, is not a weed (or a wid) but a group of homicidal Arab thugs right out of a Kipling novel, with a few improvements and refinements, such as mass rape and ethic cleansing. They are armed, roam about astride camels or horses, and go about the business of mass murder, rape and pillage and all of those other pleasantries that mark the depraved era in which we live. Where is the UN on this one. They should be doing something about this. Oh wait I am talking about the UN. They can't enforce any of their resolutions. IT took the US to finally put a stop to Saddam's terror in Iraq. The UN will just talk and nothing will happen just like in Rwanda. Milions got slaughtered there, but the UN was silent. Hoipefully someone wiull put a stop to these thugs. You can read the rest of Phil Brennan's column here.

QandO: 9/11 Commission Report: Iraq

QandO: 9/11 Commission Report: Iraq Here is some good post about the 9/11 report from Qando While Iraq is not central to the 9/11 Commission Report, I thought it could be interesting to see what they have to say about it. Holy crap. While certainly not conclusive evidence of extensive collaboration, the 9/11 report seems to give a great deal of weight to the charges that there were "ties" between Iraq and Al Qaeda. It also rains on the parades of one Mr. Clarke, who had claimed Iraq was a diversion, that there was "absolutely no evidence that Iraq was supporting al Qaeda, ever". In fact, it is quite devastating on that point, using Clarke's own words. We'll get to it. I've compiled all the (notable*) Iraq references in the report.... Readn the rest here

Blogs for Bush: African-Americans and the GOP

Blogs for Bush: African-Americans and the GOP: "Does the Democrat party take African American voters for granted? Is it a good thing for the African American community to be represented mainly by one political party? How is it possible to gain political leverage if the party is never forced to compete? Have the traditional solutions of the Democrat party truly served the African American community? Does blocking the faith-based initiative help neighborhoods where the only social service provider could be a church? Does the status quo in education really, really help the children of this country? Does class warfare -- has class warfare or higher taxes ever created decent jobs in the inner city? Are you satisfied with the same answers on crime, excuses for drugs and blindness to the problem of the family?" Takne from Blogs for Bush

WorldNetDaily: Teacher has kids tasting flavored condoms

WorldNetDaily: Teacher has kids tasting flavored condoms What the hell is going on with our schools. Having teachers go around and having 15 year olds to taste flavored condoms. It is just ridiculous. According to a report in the Santa Fe New Mexican, parent Lisa Gallegos said that when her 15-year-old daughter balked at putting a condom in her mouth, instructor Tony Escudero told her, "Come on, sweetie, have a little fun." What a great thing to say to a young girl. Also, Gallegos quotes her daughter as saying when a male student expressed his disgust with homosexual activity, Escudero said, "Never say never, because you never know. Someday you might like it that way." What if he would never like it that way "It had been investigated," Danfelser told the New Mexican. "There was no wrongdoing. I have no more comment. ... (Gallegos) may or may not agree with that, but that's her prerogative." Nothing like listening to the parents of students. If I was her parent I would take her out of that school right away. I would never want a teacher to teach students sex education like this. It is immoral. Found this story at Barking Moonbat Early Warning System

I also read a lot of other blogs, but these are the ones I read the most often. Here is another top 20 blog list from Cheese and Bacon.


News OK This is intersting. Yuo can write stuff that threatens other students, but you can't take an aspirin without a teacher watching you, even if it is for that time of the month and are embarassed to ask a male teacher. But you can write things like this: "I am Dark, Destructive, & Dangerous," one of his poems read. "I slap on my face of happiness but inside I am evil!! For I can be the next kid to bring guns to kill students at school. So parents watch your children cuz I'm BACK!!"

And to it's leak to the press. WHo cares when it was. I am glad that we know about it. People like Berger are not above the law and he should be punushed. And I hope that they had copies of the documents that he took out of there also.

Officer providing soccer gear to Iraqi youth

Officer providing soccer gear to Iraqi youth Here is a good story from Iraq that you waon;t see i the mainstream meadia. The project started in March while Fyfe was at a meeting with local mayors of villages surrounding Mosul. When asked about what his village needed, one mayor said his village could use sports equipment. Fyfe had often seen children playing soccer on dirt fields with bare feet and improvised balls. Seeing an opportunity to help, Fyfe talked to his high school soccer coaches and friends back in Rocky Point, N.Y., to see if they could donate some used soccer equipment. The response was overwhelming. What began as an inquiry to a few friends, spread through word of mouth until people he didn’t even know were sending boxes filled with uniforms, balls, shoes and school supplies for the children. After the story appeared in local newspapers and on television networks like FOX, the donations poured in. Found at The Patriette

Official denies nuclear arms found in Iraq - (United Press International)

Official denies nuclear arms found in Iraq - (United Press International) This is interesting. Official denies nuclear arms found in Iraq Baghdad, Iraq, Jul. 21 (UPI) -- A U.S. military official Wednesday denied a report of Iraqi missiles carrying nuclear warheads being found in a concrete trench northwest of Baghdad. The daily al-Sabah newspaper Wednesday had quoted sources as saying three missiles armed with nuclear warheads were discovered in a trench near the city of Tikrit, the hometown of ousted Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. A U.S. military spokesman in Tikrit told United Press International that the report was untrue. "Nothing's been found. The report is not factual," said Master Sgt. Robert Cowens, a spokesman for the 1st Infantry Division, based in Tikrit. The newspaper reported the three missiles were discovered by chance when Iraqi security forces captured former Baath party official Khoder al-Douri who revealed during interrogation the location of the missiles saying they carried nuclear warheads. Al-Sabah said that the missiles were discovered in a trench under six meters of concrete, designed to evade sophisticated sensors. A spokesman with Prime Minister Iyad Allawi's office told UPI that the report concerning the alleged missiles and warheads emerged "while gathering information for Saddam Hussein's tribunal" during the interrogation of a captured former official of Saddam's regime.

The Sun Is Responsible For Global Warming?

This is a good post on Right Wing News  
"While the established view remains that the sun cannot be responsible for all the climate changes we have seen in the past 50 years or so, this study is certainly significant," he said. "It shows that there is enough happening on the solar front to merit further research. Perhaps we are devoting too many resources to correcting human effects on the climate without being sure that we are the major contributor." Here's more along the same lines from conservationist David Bellamy... "Global warming - at least the modern nightmare version - is a myth. I am sure of it and so are a growing number of scientists. But what is really worrying is that the world's politicians and policy-makers are not. Instead, they have an unshakeable faith in what has, unfortunately, become one of the central credos of the environmental movement: humans burn fossil fuels, which release increased levels of carbon dioxide - the principal so-called greenhouse gas - into the atmosphere, causing the atmosphere to heat up. They say this is global warming: I say this is poppycock." Wouldn't it be a waste to cripple our economy with Kyoto if let's say, the sun, not human beings, is the main cause of global warming? "Global warming has finally been explained: the Earth is getting hotter because the Sun is burning more brightly than at any time during the past 1,000 years, according to new research. A study by Swiss and German scientists suggests that increasing radiation from the sun is responsible for recent global climate changes. Dr Sami Solanki, the director of the renowned Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research in Gottingen, Germany, who led the research, said: "The Sun has been at its strongest over the past 60 years and may now be affecting global temperatures. ...Dr Solanki said that the brighter Sun and higher levels of "greenhouse gases", such as carbon dioxide, both contributed to the change in the Earth's temperature but it was impossible to say which had the greater impact." Tell ya what, when they can accurately forecast whether I'm going to need to take an umbrella to work for an entire summer and how many days it's going to snow the following winter, then I'll start paying attention to their "surefire cures" for global warming. But, given how little we actually know and understand about how our climate works, I think it would be nuts to sign up for Kyoto based on the advice of a bunch of environmental "Ms. Cleos"...

This is scary

It is just scary that there are people outthere like this.
I'm going to have to move to Staten Island. I'll never leave my house because I'll have to care for these children. I'll have to start shopping only at Costco and buying big jars of mayonnaise. Even in my moments of thinking about having three, I don't think that deep down I was ever considering it. My immediate response was, I cannot have triplets. I was not married; I lived in a five-story walk-up in the East Village; I worked freelance; and I would have to go on bed rest in March. I lecture at colleges, and my biggest months are March and April. I would have to give up my main income for the rest of the year. There was a part of me that was sure I could work around that. But it was a matter of, Do I want to? Oh, my gosh, there are three heartbeats. I can't believe we're about to make two disappear I would do the same thing if I had triplets again, but if I had twins, I would probably have twins. Then again, I don't know.
This is what pro-choice means. I might not have the life I want so I am going to get rid of 2 of the triplets. This is why we need to elect Bush to the White House. So there is not abortion on demand. i know there are some times that abortions might be a medical neccesity, but there is no reason for this. I found this at A Small Victory. He found is at Michele Malkin's blog.

We need to get rid of all the pork that is going on in congress. IT is just amazing how much pork is still put into appropriations bills even with the Republicans in control. Thjis is totally against what conservatives are about. We want the government to slow down the spending and give back some of the money to the people. Not to spend all the pork and increase deficits to astounding heights. Hopefully more congressmen will be like Rep. Roscoe Bartlett, R-Md. He is my new hero.

Thie is great to see

It all began with a chance encounter at an airport, a glance, an offer, a quiet chat. What's your seat number, soldier? It's 23-B, sir, the soldier told the businessman. No, son, that's my seat. Yours is in first class. As more soldiers boarded, similar offers quickly came from the other first-class passengers. And eight soldiers heading home from Iraq for two weeks of R&R found themselves with their officers in the big seats up front instead of the center seats in coach. U.S soldiers fresh from Iraq were surprised but grateful for the first-class seats on Flight 866 from Atlanta to Chicago. That spontaneous act of good will transformed American Airlines Flight 866, from Atlanta to Chicago, on June 29. "The soldiers were very, very happy, and the whole aircraft had a different feeling," said Lorrie Gammon, one of the Dallas-based flight attendants working the trip. "There were 14 seats in first class, and there were 12 soldiers there. The other two first-class passengers wanted to give up their seats, too, but they couldn't find any more soldiers."

My Way - News I don't know what to say about this story. In a way I am happy, but I also don;t understand why this has happened now. The House voted 217-191 to remove $25,000 in the $19.4 billion 2005 foreign aid bill earmarked for Saudi Arabia. The funds were designated for military training but approval would have triggered millions of dollars in discounts on hardware and other military training, lawmakers said. I don't think we need to give aid to Saudi Arabia, but is now the time to be pulling this?? They finally started their War on Terror. They finally started to crack down on thier own imilitants. Arizona Republican Rep. Jim Kolbe, said the timing of the House measure "could not be worse." He acknowledged Saudi Arabia had not always been a model partner in the war on terror but said "we need all the friends and allies we can get."

NewsMax.com: Inside Cover Story From News Max Senate Intel Report: Saddam's Nuke Scientists Active Until War While the Senate Intelligence Committee concluded on Friday that Saddam Hussein didn't have much in the way of weapons of mass destruction, its conclusions on Iraq's nuclear weapons program weren't quite the clean bill of health that the media have suggested they were. For instance, according to the report's "Overall Conclusions" section, "Iraq was procuring dual use equipment that had potential nuclear applications." What's more, the Committee found that "Iraq had kept its cadre of nuclear weapons personnel trained and in positions that could keep their skills intact for eventual use in a reconstituted nuclear program." To be sure, the Committee managed to come up with alternative explanations for these developments, such as labeling Saddam's nuclear team "former nuclear scientists" who just happened to be working at "former nuclear facilities" while carrying out work unrelated to any weapons program. But nowhere in the Committee's conclusions is there any mention of the 1.8 tons of low-enriched uranium that Saddam managed to accumulate at his "former" nuclear weapons plant at al-Tuwaitha. Just last month the U.S. Energy Department transported that stockpile out of Baghdad to prevent terrorists from getting their hands on it. And neither does the Committee discuss the 500 tons of un-enriched uranium Saddam kept at the same facility - material that certainly could have kept those "former" nuclear scientists busy, especially if they were able to convert some of that "dual use equipment." Of course, critics of the war say fears about Saddam's uranium stockpile were overblown, that the massive cache of nuke fuel was kept under seal and inspected annually by the International Atomic Energy Agency - even after U.N. weapons inspectors were kicked out in 1998. That would be the same IAEA that did such a bang-up job of keeping tabs on North Korea's nuclear program for the last 10 years - right up until 2002, when Pyongyang announced, "Surprise, we have eight nuclear bombs."

NewsMax.com: Inside Cover Story From News Max. Quotes from Michael Moore’s book, "Dude Where’s My Country?” (Warner Books, 2003) regarding the United States support for Israel: # Moore dedicated his book "Dude, Where’s My Country?" to Rachel Corrie, an International Solidarity Movement volunteer who was killed March 16 when she climbed in front of a Caterpillar bulldozer that was destroying tunnels used by Palestinian terrorists to illegally smuggle weapons from Egypt into Gaza # "Of course many Israeli children had died too, at the hands of the Palestinians. You would think that would make every Israeli want to wipe out the Arab world, but the average Israeli does not have that response. Why? Because IN THEIR HEARTS, THEY KNOW THEY ARE WRONG, AND THEY KNOW THEY WOULD BE DOING JUST WHAT THE PALESTINIANS ARE DOING IF THE SANDAL WERE ON THE OTHER FOOT." # "Hey, here’s a way to stop suicide bombings – give the Palestinians a bunch of missile-firing Apache helicopters and let them and the Israelis go at each other head to head. Four billion dollars a year to Israel – four billion dollars a year to the Palestinians – they can just blow each other up and leave the rest of us the hell alone." # "Now I’m not just talking about your everyday anti-Semites. No, I’m talking about a perceived notion that we Americans are supporting Israel in its oppression of the Palestinian people. Now where did those Arabs come up with an idea like that? Maybe it was when the Palestinian child looked up in the air and saw an American Apache helicopter firing a missile into his baby sister’s bedroom just before she was blown into a hundred bits." # In 1987, Moore was honored by the American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee for his "courageous efforts in journalism." (ADC Times, January 1990, page 4) # In 1990, speaking before the American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, Moore announced that he would refuse to attend a screening of his movie "Roger and Me," which was being held in Jerusalem. He was quoted as saying that he would not attend until Israel ceased to occupy the West Bank and Gaza. (Arab American News, 1990) # Moore attended and spoke at a June 5, 1990, demonstration protesting the continued Israeli occupation at the Israeli Embassy in Washington, D.C. (Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, July, 2001) # In October 2003, Moore was honored by the Muslim American Public Affairs Council (MPAC) with a media award. (www.mpac.org) # In his book "Stupid White Men and Other Sorry Excuses for the State of the Nation," Moore proposed that Congress give Israel 30 days to end the bloodshed taking place in its name, and if Israel did not do so, funding to Israel should be cut. He also noted that while individual terrorism is bad, state-sponsored terrorism is truly evil. Moore also proposed that the Palestinians be given their statehood and receive twice as much economic assistance from the United States as Israel receives. # "In Liverpool, [Moore] paused to contemplate the epicenters of evil in the modern world: "It’s all part of the same ball of wax, right? The oil companies, Israel, Halliburton." (David Brooks in the New York Times, June 26, 2004) # Recently Moore had no comment when questioned about the rumor that members of Hezbollah had been involved in the distribution of "Fahrenheit 9/11."

NewsMax.com: Inside Cover Story

NewsMax.com: Inside Cover Story Goodness, what would "eugenics" fan Margaret Sanger have to say about this? Thanks to abortion, the one-child policy of China's communist dictatorship is causing a wholesale slaughter of females. "Researchers say China has millions fewer girls than it normally should, suggesting that many were aborted or killed after birth," the Associated Press reported today. If you don't know who Margaret Sanger is, she is the fonunder of PLanned Parenthood. She wanted all the lower class people to have abortions or get nuetered to make society better. What agreat person she was. She wanted only rich white people to have children and the lower class immigrants to not have children to make the world better. As you can see here it doesn't work out. It only harms society. Just like abortion on demand does. Kerry's wife was thankful she had the choice to abort her child becasue it might be deformed. That is no reason not to have an abortion. Many deformities can be surgically be fixed and the doctors arenotnalways right about how deformed or menatlly deformed a child is before it is born. A lot of them live a wonderful full life and are great for society.

NewsMax.com: Inside Cover Story "The civil-rights movement has historically been multicultural, and many of its founders, including those who established the NAACP, were in fact white," Paige wrote. "I long for the day when our nation's education policy will not be grist for the partisan mill - when we can work together, black and white, rich and poor, for the sake of our children." Ron Paige I don't think that the NAACP will ever agree with him on this one. And I am glad that George Bush decided not tgo go the NAACP Bush-bashing party. They are nothing more than a Democratic fund-raising group. The president has rejected an invitation to speak to the Bush-hating group, which has degenerated into nothing but a tool of John Kerry and other Democrats. As the Associated Press noted today, "The leaders of the NAACP have said they are committed to helping Kerry defeat Bush this year."

Marine Corps News> Iraqi translator's service to Coalition comes at high cost

Marine Corps News> Iraqi translator's service to Coalition comes at high cost Found at Right Thinking from the Left Coast. AL ANBAR PROVINCE, Iraq(July 11, 2004) -- Sally's children were taken away from her more than six months ago. Her husband beat her. Her brother threatened her life while holding a gun to her head. Her own father contracted her death with a $5,000 reward. Sally, an Iraqi translator working with Coalition Forces, lost everything by working to help Americans rebuild Iraq. Still, she feels her service with Americans is the right thing for her country "I lost everything I have, but I have gained so much," Sally said. "If I had to do it over again I would. I help the Americans, help my people." I am sure you won;t find this story in the "mainstream" media. This is a tragic story. "FoMy neighbors found out that I was helping the Americans and they beat my children," she said. "They threw rocks at my daughter and broke both arms on my son. They told me to watch out or I will be killed." It wasn't just her neighbors who harbored hatred for Sally's assistance to the Coalition. Her family was infuriated. "When my family came home from Turkey and found out, they told me to that I would be killed," she said. "They called me horrible names like 'bitch' and 'whore.' My brother put a pistol to my head and threatened to kill me." She lived only because her mother intervened. But it wasn't a measure of love, but family honor. "My mother stopped him by saying, she is not your real sister, and it's not your honor to kill her," she recalled. "She is not even my daughter, her real mother died when she was born."

KRT Wire | 07/15/2004 | Ditka won't seek U.S. Senate seat, blasts gay marriage

KRT Wire | 07/15/2004 | Ditka won't seek U.S. Senate seat, blasts gay marriage Ditka s not going to run now. I am just wondering who the Republican Party here is going to run now against the admitted coke addict Obama. We need someone who would be able to ge elected. Ditka would have hd a chance because many people in Chicago would have voted for him. But now I don't know who could run. A few years ago my uncle's friend ran and almost won. But he lost St. Claire county big-time. The only way a Republican can get elected in Illinois is if they get rid of all the shenanigans that go on in Chicago and St. Claire county. Chicago has dead people voting all the time, they even hace dogs voting in some places. And in St. Claire county they need to get rid of money for votes schemes and the drugs for votes schemes in East St. Louis. It is just amazing how much corruption is in St. Claire county. I was a poll watcher one time and saw many people geting paid for votes, but it was impossible to proove it because it was not in the polling place, it was outside and not in clear view. WE need to have the States Attorney 's office have officers at a lot of the polling places to get rid of this corruption.

Guess Who????

Found at JunkYardBlog. "You know, I have repeatedly defended President Bush against the left on Iraq, even though I think he should have waited until the U.N. inspections were over. I don't believe he went in there for oil. We didn't go in there for imperialist or financial reasons. We went in there because he bought the Wolfowitz-Cheney analysis that the Iraqis would be better off, we could shake up the authoritarian Arab regimes in the Middle East, and our leverage to make peace between the Palestinians and Israelis would be increased. At the moment the U.N. inspectors were kicked out in '98, this is the proper language: there were substantial quantities of botulinum and aflatoxin, as I recall, some bioagents, I believe there were those, and VX and ricin, chemical agents, unaccounted for. Keep in mind, that's all we ever had to work on. We also thought there were a few missiles, some warheads, and maybe a very limited amount of nuclear laboratory capacity. After 9/11, let's be fair here, if you had been President, you'd think, Well, this fellow bin Laden just turned these three airplanes full of fuel into weapons of mass destruction, right? Arguably they were super-powerful chemical weapons. Think about it that way. So, you're sitting there as President, you're reeling in the aftermath of this, so, yeah, you want to go get bin Laden and do Afghanistan and all that. But you also have to say, Well, my first responsibility now is to try everything possible to make sure that this terrorist network and other terrorist networks cannot reach chemical and biological weapons or small amounts of fissile material. I've got to do that. That's why I supported the Iraq thing. There was a lot of stuff unaccounted for. So I thought the President had an absolute responsibility to go to the U.N. and say, "Look, guys, after 9/11, you have got to demand that Saddam Hussein lets us finish the inspection process." You couldn't responsibly ignore [the possibility that] a tyrant had these stocks. I never really thought he'd [use them]. What I was far more worried about was that he'd sell this stuff or give it away. Same thing I've always been worried about North Korea's nuclear and missile capacity. I don't expect North Korea to bomb South Korea, because they know it would be the end of their country. But if you can't feed yourself, the temptation to sell this stuff is overwhelming. So that's why I thought Bush did the right thing to go back. When you're the President, and your country has just been through what we had, you want everything to be accounted for."

Man arrested with suicide note on flight to Minneapolis-St. Paul International

Man arrested with suicide note on flight to Minneapolis-St. Paul International We need to keep a look out for guys like this. Federal sources told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS the man was arrested last Wednesday at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. Sources in the Twin Cities and in Washington D.C. said the man arrived on a flight and was taken into federal custody. Along the way, customs agents found disturbing items in his possession. The U.S. Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement confirmed to 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS that Ali Mohamed Almosaleh is in federal custody in the Twin Cities. He was being detained on an immigration law violation, but federal sources confirmed there is much more than that to this investigation. Sources confirm Almosaleh was carrying a suicide when he was arrested. They say that note indicated a specific time and date for carrying out some sort of public suicide. He was also carrying CDs and DVDs, which federal sources say contained anti-American material. A source also confirms Almosaleh had something with him indicating a connection with at least one known terrorist.

DITKA: Well my platform would be what the people want. I hate to say that, that sounds so generic, but what do people want? You talk about banning smoking. Okay, why don't we ban abortion? Let's talk about things that are really important. You know you talk about, well, you think one thing can harm your health, the other one takes a life. Come on here, you know you're talking to a guy that is ultra-ultra-ultra conservative. So you know people who don't like that, you won't like me one bit. But I think I'm about what the majority of this people in the country are. I believe this country was founded under God. I think people who say it wasn't are crazy. But that's their biz; you know, that's me. What you see is what you're gonna get. You're not going to like all of it.

Top Ten Initiatives to Expect in Senator Ditka's First 100 Days

From Dumocrats.com I would love to see Ditka in their. He says what he means and would be a straight shooter, kinda like John McCain. It would be very interesting to see him run. He could get a lot of the vote in Chicago. Even the dead guys and dogs in Chicago might vote for him. Wouldn't that be interesting. 10. Unlike Dick Cheney, he won't tell other Senators to "fuck off", but he will hurl gum at them. 9. Will not vote for the latest education bill without a guarantee that all U.S. history books use an asterisk if they discuss the U.S. "losing" the Vietnam War. 8. He will insist that Pentagon war planners institute revolutionary new "46" defense. 7. His press secretary will hold news conferences while wearing headbands that say "Clinton" or "Kerry". 6. Will introduce a bill to get the US out of the UN...unless those international pansies start playing "real" football. 5. With his input in the planning, the 2008 Republican National Convention will feature Senators performing new rap hit: "Super Senate Shuffle". 4. Will vote to trade Guam, American Samoa and the Wake Islands to Japan for Takeru Kobayashi. 3. His constant threats will cause Wisconsin Senators Feingold and Kohl to employ bodyguards to ward off attacks from "Samurai Mike" Singletary. 2. He'll be a fearless leader. After all, working in the Senate is nothing compared to talking to your doctor about erectile dysfunction. And, the number one initiative to expect in Senator Ditka's first 100 days: 1. Suggests Israel replace their "illegal" wall with a more effective barrier: William, "The Refrigerator" Perry.

Yahoo! News - Bush: Kerry Brags About Abandoning Troops

Yahoo! News - Bush: "If anyone let down the American people, it's this president," Stupak said. "He took a little bit of questionable evidence, exaggerated it and led us to war." The left is still not reasing the report that came out. Bush did not lie to the Amerian people. he said what was passed on to him from the CIA. The CIA migfht have had some things wrong, but to blame President Bush for those failures is ridiculous. Anyway, the report still gives Bush alot of amunition to go to war with Iraq.

Some Stuff form the Democratic Underground

This is from A Small Vctory : The Dude Abides (from article) When Justin Hunt initially tried to join the Marines, the recruiters didn't have a scale that could weigh him. Instead, they estimated the hulking athlete just two years out of high school was more than 150 pounds too heavy to join the service. Hunt didn't let that stop him. He worked out, changed his diet and shed the pounds so he could enlist. Comments at DU: * Sounds like his motivation for weight loss was a death wish. the case could be made, I think. Stranger things have happened. * Sorry, but IMO, this just improved the gene pool. * Sounds like the poor kid was trying to please somebody*... "Hey look, Mom, Dad, everybody, I'm thin, I'm a patriot, I'm a Christian, and I'm a soldier. *Now am I okay?" * Because they are KILLERS Bums and Bullies . I knew guys like that in the service who loved to KILL, and loved to hunt other human beings. They are always with us. Between wars some of them assume the mantra of serial killers. Just buy or rent Platoon or Full Metal Jacket, to see a few examples. ANd KJohm Kerry has stil got a link to this website. Amazing that he would let theses people be associated wiht him at all. These poepl have no class or respect for anybody that doesn't agree with them. Yes I might make fun of people herea and there, but to say things like this to someone who joine dthe military voluntarily is just ridiculous. And by the way Platoon and Full Metal Jacket are movies. They are god movies, but don not portay real life. They are fiction. Kinda like Michael Moore's f9/11.

That is just rude and should never be allowed in a campaign rally or whatever they call it. They use hollywood to promote adn get out the vote. Hollywood has no values except to get as much money as they can and make movies that curtail to their political views. What BS, Kerry/Edwards values. "We need somebody in the White House who shares the values that most Americans believe in." He failed to note that the values of his hometown, and the rest of flyover country, are greatly at odds with his version of values and Kerry's version of values and Whoopi Goldberg's version of values.

Not So Fast, John Kerry; Survey Says President Bush Has Best Hair

Looks like Kerry lost this one. He will probably loose in November also. Not So Fast, John Kerry; Survey Says President Bush Has Best Hair: "STERLING, Ill., July 8 /PRNewswire/ -- May the best candidate win, but when it comes to the best presidential hair, George W. Bush has America's vote, according to Wahl Clipper Corporation's 2004 Grooming Survey and First Ever 'Index' on men's grooming habits. Despite John Kerry's recent claim that the Kerry-Edwards ticket has the best hair, Wahl's survey found that the majority of Americans overwhelmingly voted for Bush's hair over Kerry's (Bush -- 51 percent; Kerry -- 30 percent; neither -- 10 percent; don't know -- 9 percent.) 'Wahl isn't choosing sides politically, but when it comes to what we know best -- hair -- we're interested in what Americans think is a fitting hairstyle for their president,' said Pat Anello, Director of Marketing for Wahl Clipper. 'Whether you're running for president or running a busy schedule, Wahl has innovative, quality products that make grooming easy.' The truth behind these and other hairy facts have been tabulated to form Wahl's first annual Grooming Index, designed to benchmark the grooming behavior and habits of American men (age 18 and over). The survey, conducted by Opinion Research Corporation, is based on telephone surveys of 1,009 adults, 18 and over (including 512 men) conducted between May 6-9, 2004 with a margin of error among all adults plus or minus three (3) percent (and a margin of error plus or minus four percent among men)."

Haaretz - Israel News European sources said that on the basis of information available to them, the legal opinion would be "negative and critical" of Israel. Imagine that, the UN saying something bad about Israel. The only thing the UN does is critisize the US and Israel. It is a sounding board for all the totalitarian regimes to make the US and Israel look bad.

NewsMax.com: Inside Cover Story

NewsMax.com: Inside Cover Story United Nations officials are complaining that the U.S. Energy Department failed to consult with them before removing nearly two tons of low-enriched uranium from Saddam Hussein's sprawling al Tuwaitha nuclear facility last month. During the 1990s, North Korea had little trouble circumventing IAEA inspectors, developing its own fully operational nuclear weapons program in defiance of a treaty signed with the Clinton administration. The UN couldnt't figure out that North Korea was making nuclear bombs behind their backs and are mad that we took the nuclear material out os Iraq. WTF. Ivan Oelrich, a physicist at the Federation of American Scientists, said Tuesday that Iraq's low-enriched uranium could have yielded enough highly enriched uranium to make a single nuclear bomb - if it was the standard 3 to 5 percent enrichment level common in fuel for commercial power reactors.

Today in Investor's Business Daily stock analysis and business news

Today in Investor's Business Daily stock analysis and business news Found at Invetors.com. Kind seems like they want us to loose in Iraq doesn't it. Media Bias: We're looking at a Yahoo news page. The top story from Reuters is titled, "Suicide Bomber Kills Six At Iraqi Funeral." Alongside is a photo of George W. Bush (no mention in the story) grinning widely. No wonder the president doesn't find time to read or listen to what the media say about him. The coverage has gotten so unremittingly negative that he'd be a pretty odd duck if he did. It isn't just a Web page here and there. It's the nightly news, the weekly newsmagazines, the national newspapers, the global wire services. Even book publishers and film makers are going all-out to make him look as bad as they can. Then there's the foreign press. It could be our imagination. But to get a better feel, we reviewed the front page of one national newspaper — the Los Angeles Times — over the last month. Below are headlines that appeared over stories related to Iraq.

FrontPage magazine.com :: Over His Head by Ben Johnson

FrontPage magazine.com :: Over His Head by Ben Johnson Great article about Edwards as VP John Kerry chose John Edwards as his running mate because Edwards is political Viagra. He compensates for Kerry’s charisma-deficit and general unlikeability. Edwards’ also adds strong “populist” anti-trade rhetoric and a hardscrabble biography (before becoming a multi-millionaire trial lawyer). Selecting Edwards allows Kerry to campaign on Edwards’ domestic agenda and anti-business platform. (Expect every Kerry surrogate in the country to utter the word “Halliburton” every five-minutes between now and the elections.) This fall, instead of addressing the Islamist threat to America’s physical survival, Kerry will resurrect the domestic concerns that guided both their primary campaigns: nationalizing a greater share of the health care industry, raising taxes and squelching free trade. In short, Kerry has chosen to run Richard Gephardt’s campaign – which did not carry Iowa. And in place of Gephardt, he has chosen an inexperienced politician with no background in defense or foreign policy, because Edwards is more aesthetically appealing. Edwards’ lack of credentials vis-à-vis terrorism shows, not only does Kerry continue to view terrorism as “primarily an intelligence and law enforcement operation,” but he is prepared to leave his country without a competent successor in return for short-term political gain. Kerry’s choice shows both he and his running mate are unfit for the nation’s highest office. This is just the end of the article, read the rest to find out more about Edwards.

The Draft and Bush

Found at Disseminating Vast Right Wing Conspiracy Propaganda. If you've watched any sort of political show or have taken part in that many political discussions then you've probably have came across a mention of the reinstatement of the draft. Inevitably someone will say that they dont' want to vote for Bush because he will supposedly resurrect the draft and they'll be sent to war, I'm wondering where they got this stupid notion in the first place. Not only are the bills exclusively sponsored by Democrats but the Bush administration has came forward several times through Secretary Rumsfeld to speak against the concept of bringing back the draft as seen below: "I don't know anyone in the executive branch of the government who believes it would be appropriate or necessary to reinstitute the draft," Mr. Rumsfeld told a Washington gathering of members of the Newspaper Association of America, the American Society of Newspaper Editors and the Associated Press. That was his most recent statement regarding the draft. If you would like to follow the progress of the two bills (neither of which have seen any action whatsoever in over a year) then go to the links provided below. S.89 H.R.163 So if you ever get in a debate over the draft at least you'll have some ammunition. Another ploy by the left to get Kerry elected. But in fact it is only Democrats sponsoring the Bills for a draft.

TNR Online | Talk Down (print) Andrew Sullivan breaks down Kerry's speech superbly. It is a good read. GOOD CHOICE. BAD SPEECH. Talk Down by Andrew Sullivan Only at TNR Online Post date: 07.07.04 It was, I think, the right decision. John Edwards will make a great running mate for Kerry. But missed in the natural brouhaha is the actual speech John Kerry gave announcing his choice. It's perhaps the first national stump speech given by Kerry now that the primaries are long over and the national campaign is beginning. And it was dreadful. It failed on almost every count. It was tedious; it was vacuous; and it was hyper-liberal. Here's my textual criticism. John Edwards is ready for this job. He is ready for this job and there is something else about John Edwards that is important in this campaign and our country at this critical time. As you know, I am determined that we reach out across party lines, that we speak the heart of America, that we speak of hope and of optimism. And John Edwards will join me in doing that. As so many [applause] as so many of you know, throughout this campaign, John talked about the great divide in America--the two Americas that exist between those who are doing very well and those who are struggling to make ends meet in our country. That concern is at the center of this campaign. It is what it is all about. It is what the 35 years of my struggle have been about and I am so proud that together John Edwards and I are now going to fight to build one America for all Americans. This is a major statement. What it says is that the Kerry campaign is fundamentally not about the war on terror. It's about economic inequality. And the premise is that an unequal country is not truly a united country. It would be hard to find a simpler expression of paleoliberalism than that. As you know, as a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee and also a leader in fighting bioterrorism and understanding the threats we face, he shares my unshakable commitment to having a military that is second to nobody in the world but also to restoring old and rebuilding new alliances that make America stronger. Perhaps this paragraph is supposed to reassure those of us who worry that John Kerry's position in the war on terror is simply to call it off. Well, it doesn't. Notice the vapid formulation: Edwards wants a military that is "second to nobody" in the world. But the current U.S. military is so far ahead of all its competitors that the notion of its falling into "second place" is ludicrous. Who would overtake the hegemon? Germany? Russia? France? China? Please. Not for a very long time, if ever. So Kerry gets to sound tough on defense while saying something completely vacuous. Then the second plank: "restoring old and rebuilding new alliances." But for what? So far, the only actual mention of the Islamist enemy is another vacuous phrase: "the threats we face." Can you tell us what those threats are, senator? And shouldn't they determine to a great extent what our foreign policy should be? Nah. You get the impression that Kerry's notion of a successful foreign policy is almost defined by whether every ally supports it. It's all process and no point. In peacetime, this is a weakness. In wartime, it's a disqualifier. And there is also a great bonus--a great bonus--in having John on this ticket. He, like me, is blessed with a remarkable wife, a strong, brave woman, Elizabeth Edwards. And Teresa and I will be proud to stand with the Edwards family, with their daughter, Kate, who just graduated from college this year, and with their two little ones, Emma Claire and Jack. And anyone who knows them, and America will get to know them, knows that this is a family that loves each other and loves America. We--we are--Teresa and I have talked with John and Elizabeth this morning. We've invited them to come here to Pittsburgh tonight and [applause] we're going to spend the evening together, have a little chance to break bread, get a chance to talk. Our families will have a chance to meet and get to know each other well. And tomorrow morning, together, we all look forward to coming out and speaking to the nation for the first time as a team that will lead this country in a new and stronger direction. Well, that's nice for you all. And Elizabeth Edwards is indeed an impressive person. But please let us know when the group hug is over. In the next 120 days John and I and Elizabeth and Teresa are going to crisscross this country and fight for the nation that all of us know that we can be. This is about fairness; it's about fundamental fairness for all Americans; it's about people being able to go to work and actually getting the ability through a week's work and a month's work and a year's work to pay their bills, to live decently, to get ahead, to be able to be fair. This paragraph is so vapid, so empty of any meaning, it almost defies commentary. It's about "fairness." What unfairness is he describing? We don't know. But we do know that this candidate is very much in favor of people being able to go to work and pay their bills. I'm sure he's also in favor of afternoon naps, ice cream, and new cars. Then he says that his campaign is about people being "able to be fair." So now the government is not only in favor of fairness; it's in favor of fairness "ability." You can hack away at this kind of verbiage for a very long time and the weeds of blather just keep growing back. This is a fight about creating jobs in America that don't pay less than the jobs that we're losing overseas; this is about--this is about having a president who fights as hard for your job as he fights for his own job. This is about once and for all ending the shame of the United States of America being the only industrial nation on this planet--and the richest one at that--that doesn't yet understand--but it will at the end of this campaign--health care is not a privilege for the wealthy and the connected; health care is for all Americans. And we're going to fight for it. Shrummery. But important Shrummery. Notice all the "fights" and "fighting" in this speech. And look what we're "fighting" for. The key plank of Kerry's election will be Clinton's in 1992: government-mandated universal healthcare. And the current American choice to deliver healthcare primarily through private industry is "shameful." Not wrong or misguided: shameful. Again, there's a case to be made for government-mandated universal healthcare. And it's certainly a relief to see Kerry actually say something substantive. But it also highlights that the Republican charge that Kerry is a big government, moralistic paleoliberal has a good deal of truth to it. This is [chanting and applause] this [chanting continues] this is also a fight for common sense. And it's about the future, and children, and the future of children and ... who writes this crap? And [applause] and I can pledge you this: John Edwards and I would never think about sending young America's sons and daughters into harm's way anywhere in the world without telling the American people the truth. Now this is a big charge. Kerry is saying--but not saying--that the president lied to the American people when he explained on many occasions his own reasons for going to war against Saddam. So what was the lie? WMD? Does Kerry have evidence that this administration knew that Saddam had no such stockpiles and told the American people something else? Let him produce it. But all the evidence suggests a screw-up not a cover-up. Maybe the Bushies convinced themselves too easily of Saddam's arsenal. Certainly they can be criticized severely for their miscalculation. But observe Kerry's decision: not to call Bush an incompetent or a hysteric--but to call him a liar on one of the gravest matters imaginable, sending young men and women into danger. This charge is itself revealing of Kerry's political character. He's prepared to level the most serious allegations and not substantiate them. One other thing: Since the senator supported the war, he must believe that he was misled as well. A question then: On what issue did the president lie to him? Isn't a charge that grave worthy of actual evidence? And part of that common sense is pretty straightforward. God only gave us 3 percent of the world's oil reserves. Right? But the Middle East has 65 percent. I think it's smart for America to control its own destiny; I think it's smart for us to be able to know that our security is in our hands. I think it's smart for us to know that no young American in uniform will ever be held hostage to America's dependence on oil in the Middle East. We're going to liberate ourselves. That last phrase is an egregious slur on the liberation of the people of Iraq and Afghanistan. But put that aside. How does Kerry propose that we "liberate ourselves"? Presumably, he's referring to energy independence. But surely he knows that even the most ambitious project would not end the West's reliance on Middle Eastern oil for the foreseeable future. So in the meantime, what is Kerry's policy toward the Middle East? Does he support Bush-style democratization? Or a return to the realpolitik of Scowcroft? I think the absence of any analysis of the current war in the Middle East--except that the region would be better if we didn't have to be there at all--gives the answer. And as John learned in North Carolina and as both of us have heard all across this country, we've met too many parents who are forced to send their kids to a school that's overcrowded in its classes, that's lost its after-school programs, parents who feel frustrated that they just can't even get their kids the opportunities that parents live and die for. Well, when I'm president and with John Edwards as vice president, I promise you this: We're going to stop being a country that's content to build a prison and spend $70,000 a year or $50,000 a year to house a young person there for the rest of their life rather than invest $10 - $11,000 in Head Start, Early Start, Smart Start--give kids a chance to be full citizens. Again, a revealing pitch. Kerry's paleoliberal boilerplate: The only problem with education is that we don't spend enough public money on it. And if parents are "forced" to send their kids to bad public schools, the last thing you'd want is to give them an actual choice, like vouchers. And, according to Kerry, there's also a problem with putting criminals in jail, when they could have been in Head Start--and all would have been well. One obvious question: Is Kerry auditioning for a new Bush ad? Or is he just determined to throw a wrench into the difficult work that Bill Clinton did insisting that Democrats can be tough on crime and don't see all public problems as a function of not enough taxpayers' money being thrown at the issue? I'm afraid Kerry actually believes this. The NEA never found a more pliable front-man. So I ask you over these next days as we build this team and as we go forward in this race, we've got four months, four months, and I have you, you, right--you bet we do. And that's exactly the point that I want to make. Every generation in American history--think of your parents and your grandparents and go back and read your history books--every generation has had a chance to contribute to who we are as Americans. I love that condescension: Go read your history. And what would you find? That "every generation has had a chance to contribute to who we are as Americans." Duh. And when would that not be true? And how could that not be true? Kerry has the capacity to say something absolutely banal and to believe he's superior for saying it. It's a gift, I tell you. A gift. Teresa, who came from East Africa, a dictatorship, to become American and know the passion of being an American, who saw her father vote only for the first time when he was 71 years old, understands, as we all do, the blessings of this great country of ours. Now we know that Kerry really is a Scrowcroftian: The answer to foreign dictatorships is for people to leave them. But what makes this country great is our ability to come together like this in a square in a city and talk with each other and build a movement that rights our future. Can someone please pass a law forbidding politicians from saying the phrase: "What makes this country great is..."? It's a signpost for the bleeding obvious and, in this respect, Kerry doesn't disappoint. The important thing is to attend political rallies. Sheesh. We have the ability to be able to do these things. But we have to go out and make it happen. Make what happen in this great country of ours? More rallies? More ability to be fair? Fewer criminals in jail? More alliances? More money for public school teachers? More common sense? At this point, the listener might be growing a little overwhelmed by the possibilities. I [applause] I learned the great blessing of this country years ago when I fought for it. And I came together on a small boat in the jungles of Vietnam with five other guys from places as diverse as South Carolina, Arkansas, California, Iowa, Massachusetts. And you know what? When we were on that boat, folks, nobody worried about bank accounts and schools and backgrounds and religion. We covered for each other; we worked together; we were literally all in the same boat. And what we need is a president who understands that there aren't people who are powerful and special interests that you take care of in this country. We're all in the same boat. And when I'm president, we're going to have a country that reflects that; we're going to have a president who fights for all Americans, doesn't divide them; brings people together to solve problems. The boat. Oh, God. You can feel this metaphor emerging relentlessly from the depths like that "bridge to the future" that Clinton and Gore kept building and building and building. Maybe we should just surrender in front of it now. But the boat that Kerry was originally in was in a war; and the point of the boat was to take that war to the enemy. It was not to have a group self-esteem session. Who is our enemy today? What happened three and a half years ago? Who is trying to annihilate Western civilization? Kerry doesn't know and he hopes we've forgotten. But the boat sure is nice. I pledge to you that while we may be older and grayer now, those of us who served, we still know how to fight for our country and we're going to fight for our country. Translation: I fought in a war and George Bush didn't. Therefore all criticisms of my foreign policy are an assault on my patriotism. Back off, Republicans. Langston Hughes was a poet, a black man, and a poor man. Three reasons Kerry likes him. And he wrote in the 1930s powerful words that apply to all of us today. He said, Let America be America again; let it be the dream that it used to be for those whose sweat and blood, whose faith and pain, for those whose hand at the foundry--something Pittsburgh knows about--for those whose plow in the rain must bring back our mighty dream again. The use of this Langston Hughes line is now familiar. Like that boat, we're going to hear it again. But it's also vacuous. Does he mean that America is now not America? Or that the people who support the president are somehow un-American? Can you imagine the fuss if Bush said such a thing? But the wonderful thing about this passage is Kerry's unerring tin ear. For the first time in this dreadful speech, we actually get some poetry. So Kerry puts his clumsy boot in it with that priceless "something Pittsburgh knows about." What's poetry without a little pandering, after all? We've come here today to put a team together that's going to fight to bring back America's mighty dream. We're going out of here today to let America be America again. Let's go out and make it happen together. We're going out of here to fight for a mighty dream that will let America be America. If you know of any rallying cry more flatulently vapid, please don't let me know.

Iranian Car Bombs

Foug this at Captain's Corner Yesterday's revelation that US and Iraqi joint patrols had captured two Iranian intelligence officers with explosives and building car bombs sounded to me like important news. Here, after all, is proof that the so-called insurgency is not only supported by outside forces but contains active elements of official outside governmental agencies. As the Bush Doctrine states, any government engaging in terrorism or supporting terrorism against the US has made itself a target in the war on terror -- and this shows that Iran does both. But nothing on most US news media. Well, it looks like they finally found out about this. Found at Bush over Kerry I guess better late than never and buried deep in the web sites. CNN - CNN.com - U.S. removed nuclear material from Iraq - Jul 7, 2004 Washington Post - U.S. Removed Radioactive Materials From Iraq Facility (washingtonpost.com) Removed New York Times - The New York Times > Washington > Atomic Inspection: Radioactive Material Seized From a Nuclear Plant in Iraq Updated w/ Comment Strange that it is not being reported as coming from a nuclear power plant, just a nuclear program.

NewsMax.com: Inside Cover Story One potential problem: $1 million of Edwards' funds came from trial lawyers' wives, which were identified merely as "homemakers" in the campaign-finance filings. Ooops. If the cash Edwards accepted really belonged to the spouses of these so-called "homemakers," that could be illegal.

NewsMax.com: Inside Cover Story Seems to me that the Europenas "Allies" want Edwards to br the presidential candidate. # "Edwards has everything that Kerry doesn't: He is dynamic, young, charming - and he is driven by holy anger against the social injustice that there is in America," said what passes for a news article in socialist Germany's Sueddeutsche Zeitung. # "Transfusion of Charisma," trumpeted the headline in Italy's left-wing daily La Repubblica. # Edwards "has the charisma, the fresh face, the self-confident youthfulness that Mr. Kerry, nine years his senior, so clearly lacks," Britain's leftist daily Guardian sniped. # London's Daily Telegraph opined, "Where Mr. Kerry ... is wooden and aloof, his prospective vice president is a charismatic communicator who will appeal to independent voters in middle-ground states such as Ohio and Pennsylvania." # Spain's lefty El Pais clucked, "An extroverted southerner and much better communicator, Edwards is called to fill the appeal deficit that Kerry lacks in the South." # Denmark's Berlingske Tidende noted that Kerry had "chosen a vice presidential candidate who is a lawyer with a greater knowledge of how to seek legal compensation than foreign policy, where he has absolutely no knowledge." Yet it praised Kerry for "a wise decision ... because Edwards has all what Kerry has not: youth, charisma, the ability to captivate the attention of a crowd with his speeches and a clear southern profile that matches John Kerry's cool style."
