Have you forgotten????????

Via I Love Jet Noise I think this is appropriate for people to see before the elections on Nov. 2. Never Forget I will never forget and I hope every American will never forget. we were attacked on Sep 11, 2001. We are in a war not of our choosing. We did not do anything to provoke this attack on our country. We must defeat these evil people. If they are in Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Palestine, or wherever they may hide we are going to root out the evil and make our country safer for the next generation. We can never allow these animals to live and attack our country again. WHATEVER IT TAKES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chilling Video

You can see some of the Azzam the American tape at Fox News.
The magnitude and ferocity of what is coming your way will make you forget all about September 11th. ... After decades of American tyranny and oppression, now it's your turn to die. Allah willing, the streets of America will run red with blood, matching drop for drop the blood of America's victims," the man, calling himself "Azzam the American," says on the tape.
I am hoping this is just a hoax, but it might be a clue to what Al Qaeda is doing. Let's let the CIA and the govenment go through the video and not get too upset about this. It is not like something like this would come out before the election. They are trying to effect our elections with this. But I thihk that it will only backfire. Bush will always do better on the foreign affairs over Kerry.

Can we trust the U.N. again?

I don't think so. The UN is a big disappointment. they are the biggerst bunch if anti-semites in the world. They only go along against everything the US and Israel do. It has lost its way in its true purpose. It was to find peaceful ways, but has gone along with tyranical dictators and anti-democracy govenments too long. This is a good editorial by Paul Greenberg on the subject.
There was a time when the United Nations' oil-for-food program was sold as the perfect compromise. The hungry victims of Saddam Hussein's dictatorship would get food in exchange for the oil that Saddam wasn't legally allowed to sell after his various violations of the peace began to pile up. Something had to be done, and there were those who thought economic sanctions would do the trick. Only now is the truth emerging about how the U.N. oil-for-food program became Saddam's oil-for-palaces program. And how various of the world's leading diplomats may have profited personally from it.

Stop and think

A very good editorial from Thomas Sowell at the Washington Times. This is the4 part that I like best about this editorial. this isn;t just about whow will only be president for the next 4 years. It is a crossroads of where are country wants to go. either we go along the lines of Kerry and the failed policies of the past Democratic controll of the government or we go with Bush and go forward into the 21st century. I think you know which one I will vote for.
It is about a country at a crossroads and closely divided as to which road to take — roads from which there may be no turning back for many years. We are talking about our future and the future of our children and grandchildren.

Anopther behaading in Iraq.

Via The Jawa Report. The terrorists have beheaded an Iraqi man. And they pledge their allegiance to Al Quaeda and Osama Bin Laden
Iraqi militants beheaded a man, presumably Iraqi, who said he worked for the US military in the northern city of Mosul for the past 10 months, a videotape posted on Islamic web sites showed. The killing was claimed by the Ansar al-Sunnah Army, a group that has taken responsibility for the beheading of a Turkish driver and Arab Shi'ite Muslim in two tapes that surfaced earlier this month and 12 Nepalese construction workers, whose killing was shown in a video posted on August 31.

War of Words

Via Captain's Quarters. Take that Kerry. Franks put you in your place. You have no clue on what happened in Tora Bora. I think Tommy Frakns has a better idea of what happened there than you. He was the commander of the forces there. If you would have just done a little investigation you would not have lied about this, as you do onmany othere things. Just do some onvestigation and you might have a better understanding of what the War on Terror is. If Kerr yis elected, I am going to be very scared of what is going to happen to this country. I know Kerry will try and do the best to protect outr country, but if he doesn;t even realize that the War on Terror is not just against Al Quaeda and Osam bin Laden, how is he going to be able to protect us. And what is this crap about 2 more divisions in the army. You know how long that will take to get up to speed. Maybe 10 years if done will an all voluntary force. If not he will have to try and pass the draft through congress. So much for Bush trying to get the draft. Kerry has been disregarding our allies that we have now. How i the world is he going to deal with England, Poland, Australia, Hingary, etc., etc., etc. As we have founf out in the Duelfer report, France, Russia and many other countries in the Security Council of th UN would never fully investigate anything in Iraq. they were gettiong bought off by the Oil for Food program. Sorry for the long post, but I have been away for a while watching baseball. the cards have to win the next 2 so, I might be incomuticado for the tomorow and Thurs. BUt I just had to get this off my chest. Kerry will brong harm to our country. He is dissing our allies that we have now and doesn't realize what the War on Terror is. Enough of this her is Tommy Franks:

War of Words

By TOMMY FRANKS Published: October 19, 200

President Bush and Senator John Kerry have very different views of the war on terrorism, and those differences ought to be debated in this presidential campaign. But the debate should focus on facts, not distortions of history.

On more than one occasion, Senator Kerry has referred to the fight at Tora Bora in Afghanistan during late 2001 as a missed opportunity for America. He claims that our forces had Osama bin Laden cornered and allowed him to escape. How did it happen? According to Mr. Kerry, we "outsourced" the job to Afghan warlords. As commander of the allied forces in the Middle East, I was responsible for the operation at Tora Bora, and I can tell you that the senator's understanding of events doesn't square with reality.

First, take Mr. Kerry's contention that we "had an opportunity to capture or kill Osama bin Laden" and that "we had him surrounded." We don't know to this day whether Mr. bin Laden was at Tora Bora in December 2001. Some intelligence sources said he was; others indicated he was in Pakistan at the time; still others suggested he was in Kashmir. Tora Bora was teeming with Taliban and Qaeda operatives, many of whom were killed or captured, but Mr. bin Laden was never within our grasp.

Second, we did not "outsource" military action. We did rely heavily on Afghans because they knew Tora Bora, a mountainous, geographically difficult region on the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan. It is where Afghan mujahedeen holed up for years, keeping alive their resistance to the Soviet Union. Killing and capturing Taliban and Qaeda fighters was best done by the Afghan fighters who already knew the caves and tunnels.

Third, the Afghans weren't left to do the job alone. Special forces from the United States and several other countries were there, providing tactical leadership and calling in air strikes. Pakistani troops also provided significant help - as many as 100,000 sealed the border and rounded up hundreds of Qaeda and Taliban fighters.

Contrary to Senator Kerry, President Bush never "took his eye off the ball" when it came to Osama bin Laden. The war on terrorism has a global focus. It cannot be divided into separate and unrelated wars, one in Afghanistan and another in Iraq. Both are part of the same effort to capture and kill terrorists before they are able to strike America again, potentially with weapons of mass destruction. Terrorist cells are operating in some 60 countries, and the United States, in coordination with dozens of allies, is waging this war on many fronts.

As we planned for potential military action in Iraq and conducted counterterrorist operations in several other countries in the region, Afghanistan remained a center of focus. Neither attention nor manpower was diverted from Afghanistan to Iraq. When we started Operation Iraqi Freedom we had about 9,500 troops in Afghanistan, and by the time we finished major combat operations in Iraq last May we had more than 10,000 troops in Afghanistan.

We are committed to winning this war on all fronts, and we are making impressive gains. Afghanistan has held the first free elections in its history. Iraq is led by a free government made up of its own citizens. By the end of this year, NATO and American forces will have trained 125,000 Iraqis to enforce the law, fight insurgents and secure the borders. This is in addition to the great humanitarian progress already achieved in Iraq.

Many hurdles remain, of course. But the gravest danger would result from the withdrawal of American troops before we finish our work. Today we are asking our servicemen and women to do more, in more places, than we have in decades. They deserve honest, consistent, no-spin leadership that respects them, their families and their sacrifices. The war against terrorism is the right war at the right time for the right reasons. And Iraq is one of the places that war must be fought and won. George W. Bush has his eye on that ball and Senator John Kerry does not.

Tommy Franks, a retired general and former commander in chief of the Central Command, is the author of "American Soldier." He is a member of Veterans for Bush.

Poll: Bush Doubles Support Among Blacks

Here is some good news. Finally the black vote is not just going along party lines. Yes Bush doesn't have that much of the black vote, but he has doubled it since 2000. That deos not bode well for the Kerry camp.
By GENARO C. ARMAS, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON - President Bush (news - web sites) has doubled his support among blacks in four years and Sen. John Kerry (news - web sites)'s backing among the key Democratic voting bloc is down slightly from the support Al Gore (news - web sites) won in 2000, according to a poll released Tuesday.

Former POW: Kerry Preyed on My Family

Kerry and his group should be ashamed of themselves for using people's families for thier own agenda. They were not against the war, they just wanted their relative back home. I think these people should be heard, just like all of the propaganda the MSM gives Kerry.
A former Vietnam War prisoner of war charges that as he was being tortured by his communist captors, John Kerry was preying on his family to denounce the United States..... In “Stolen Honor,” Warner says, “They showed me a transcript of testimony that my mother had given at the Winter Soldier hearing. I read her testimony; it was not particularly damning, but I wondered how did someone persuade her? Then they showed me a statement by John Kerry. I know that he did talk to her and my sisters. It is really a contemptible act to take a grieving old lady and prey upon her grief and manipulate her grief purely for the promotion of your own political agenda.”

Duelfer: 'A lot of material left Iraq and went to Syria'

Via Blogs For Bush Wow this is out of the blue!!!!!!!

The World Tribune Reports...

Charles Duelfer told the Senate Armed Services Committee earlier this month he could not rule out Saddam's transfer of Iraqi missiles and weapons of mass destruction to Syria.

Duelfer, an adviser to the CIA, said at the Oct. 6 hearing that a large amount of material had been transferred by Iraq to Syria before the March 2003 war.

"A lot of materials left Iraq and went to Syria," Duelfer said. "There was certainly a lot of traffic across the border points. We've got a lot of data to support that, including people discussing it. But whether in fact in any of these trucks there was WMD-related materials, I cannot say."

An army brat's case against John Kerry

Via Powerline This is a great speech by a army brat.
I am SO very proud to stand with you today, before our nation’s great capitol. Aren’t you awed by the power and the tone of the messages we’ve heard? I know many of you have similar stories of unbelievable valor and sacrifice, just like our speakers. If only America could hear you all.

I wasn’t in Vietnam, but I’ve been a military observer and participant all my life. Army brat, Marine wife, I worked also as a civilian journalist for a Navy newspaper in Pensacola. My brother was a CH-46 pilot in Desert Storm. I’ve been a widow for 11 years now, but, happily, there’s a Marine serving out there who’s on his way home to us this week, after more than a year away, so stakes are high for me personally when it comes to electing the next commander in chief. My earliest memories however are of you, our wonderful men and women of the U.S. armed services. I was that Army brat who waited for you – and then cried when you finally returned home after a long hitch overseas. It took awhile sometimes, for us to recognize you. You guarded my gates. Double-timed outside my schoolhouse window. You unfurled the American flag each morning. You played taps each evening. You decorated my parade grounds on all the special occasions, and delivered Santa Claus in your Hueys. When I fell off my bike, riding to the post school, you picked me up, brushed me off, and told me to carry on. For years, I thought captain was a first name, and I still hit the rack each night at bedtime.

I learned early to cherish the traditions of the service, and knew enough about the world to be very proud when my dad told me he was going to a place called Vietnam so other kids could be freed from the threat of communism. When Dad was gone on his first tour, he was already my hero. I’d imagine him giving Hershey bars to little kids – he said he always carried some in the leg pocket of his flight suit, because little girls like me didn’t always get enough to eat. He was a kind and decent person, even in war. And in spite of war.

I’m certain I don’t have to tell YOU how honor and service are revered in most military households. But for others listening I want to emphasize this -- when you grow up knowing the meaning of mottos like Ex Libre Oppresso and Semper Fidelis, when you learn as a kid that freedom is not free and you see the direct and sometimes tragic toll it takes on your friends and neighbors, people you know and love, you realize that intangibles like honor and duty and trustworthiness aren’t just from political speeches.

To military families, our honor is sacred. And when a tragedy happens, whether in combat or a routine training accident, sometimes our honor is all we have to hold onto. . . .My dad helped me to understand this. He was a career soldier, an aerial rocket artillery pilot. A quiet patriot, raised up on a cattle ranch at the foot of Mt. Hood in Oregon. His adventurous spirit took him to the Army, where he loved the flying and the men with whom he served as much as he loved his family. I think some of them are here today. . .

Black Bart, my dad, distinguished himself in the battle of the Ia Drang first in 1965, when he was Charlie Battery commander for the 2nd of the 20th First Air Cav. . . .Like so many of you, Black Bart volunteered for a second tour and served as Battalion Cmdr. of the 4th of the 77th 101st Airborne. Just before Thanksgiving, 1968, we learned he was shot down and reported missing while taking out an enemy gun emplacement. That dreaded knock on the door came during The Macy’s parade, the memory of that seared forever in my brain.

And speaking of SEARED, ironically, dad’s funeral was held almost the same time a young John Kerry was seeing the doc about a splinter, and requesting his first purple heart.

Please let me emphasize… there are worse things than losing your dad in a war. I soon realized that the myths and lies created by people with political agendas can be far more hurtful. It was bad enough to hear our dads criticized by those who hated the military, but to hear Kerry and his radical veterans distort the truth and tarnish every honorable action caused a righteous hurt and anger. Their lies dominated in the American dialogue, while your stories of valor went untold. Sound familiar?

What John Kerry and his political backstabbers did in the early ‘70s took no courage. It simply took a ringleader with access to Teddy Kennedy and the willingness to sacrifice truth and honor. More than any other person, that ringleader, Kerry, was responsible for the atmosphere of hatred and disdain you all came home to.

I believe you didn’t complain because nothing like this had occurred before you. Kerry’s traitorous testimony in ’71…was an unforgettable moment that cut deep through the ranks, as we’ve heard here today. But you all had lives to build, and so you did, putting the past behind you. You tolerated the lies and stereotypes all these years. But today, this guy has made it this far in the political process -- and we stand here to object.

Let’s remind Americans this is NOT a squabble between America’s veterans, as so many talking heads want people to believe. This is about the CHARACTER AND JUDGEMENT OF one man-- John Kerry. This is about holding him accountable for his actions, especially now in a time of war and when the well-being of our military is at stake. There is no statute of limitations when the honor of a generation has been grievously stomped upon.

While debates might rage about Kerry’s short tour of duty, we’re only concerned here with irrefutable facts. This is not my opinion….these are facts:

Donna Rowe saved a beautiful baby girl. Jim Warner overcame 6 years of captivity by the enemy. Some daddies didn’t come home. And Lt. John Kerry flew out of Vietnam after just a few short weeks in combat, Super 8 film in the can, and testified that those with whom he served were ALL murderers, rapists and criminals. That’s on the record.

We are not here to re-fight the Vietnam war or even defend it. We are here to tell America that John Kerry did not have to attack the warriors to protest a war. Whatever his motivations back then, he showed he believes the means justify the ends, and everyone else be damned. Is this the kind of president we need today?

And we’re here in solidarity with our newest soldiers. We don’t want them having to salute a commander in chief whose respect for the troops is proven to blow with the political winds. We need a leader, not a weathervane.

It’s worth repeating over and over. We are motivated by a deep concern for our country. We are NOT playing politics, but venting our hearts. . . .Here’s a man who claims to be pro-military, yet his life’s work has shown otherwise. It cannot be denied or spun or revised by journalists.

When Lt. Kerry left the battlefield and betrayed you, he chose his path – weak on defense, anti-military. And he carries on, alternately boasting and bashing, voting for and against. In fact, his lies about the troops are perpetuated even in his NEW book “Tour of Duty”, written just last year. Listen to this line, from page 211 that expresses his attitude towards Cobra gunship pilots: “It disturbed (Kerry) that even a few trigger happy American yahoos considered killing Vietnamese civilians a sport."

TRIGGER HAPPY YAHOOS, MR. KERRY? How could anybody who really understands our military, say that about these fine young pilots?

So the pattern is clear: Kerry is the architect and perpetrator of one of the largest continuing slanders against American troops. He smeared you then, he is smearing the Swiftees today, and he will call us all liars tomorrow. His deceit and vindictiveness are fact.

I want you to know, some of us never questioned the character of the Vietnam veteran. You are the protectors -- the heroes from everyday America who answered your country’s call. And you’ve earned your right to speak, even 35 years later.

When Kerry supporters say you should be silent, America should stand up for you. They owe you. They should stand up and say -- Kerry was wrong to abandon you, both physically and in spirit. Kerry was wrong to attack your honor based on lies and hearsay. Kerry was wrong to paint that horrid imagery for the entire world to feast upon.

Those of us lucky enough to know this new generation of warriors understand they’ve been strengthened by the sacrifices you all made both in Vietnam and later. It’s their reverence for your sacred honor, DESPITE the John Kerrys of the world, that calls them to duty. Their clarity was forged by images of 9-11. But their courage is inspired by you.

Video Shows Beheading Murder of Two Macedonian Hostages

Via the Jawa Report. Looks like 2 more behadings in Iraq. This time it is 2 Macsdonian men
DUBAI (Reuters) - A militant group in Iraq said it had killed two Macedonian hostages it accused of spying for the United States, Arabic television Al Jazeera reported Monday.

Al Jazeera said it had received a video tape showing the killing of the two men accompanied by a statement from the Islamic Army in Iraq stating it had seized the men a few days ago as they were leaving a U.S. base.

But Macedonian television, which aired footage of the men's passports also broadcast by Al Jazeera, said the hostages were among a group of three men kidnapped in August.

I think that Putin puts it plainly and I couldnt say it any better. International terrorists have set as their goal inflicting the maximum damage to Bush, to prevent his election to a second term. If they succeed in doing that, they will celebrate a victory over America and over the entire anti-terror coalition.

I know that the esame things happen here also. We need to get rid of all of this crap. It is not in America's best interest to have people like this running around. It ruins the elections and causes problems at the elections polls.
MAN GIVEN CRACK COCAINE TO REGISTER VOTERS ARRESTED IN OHIO Mon Oct 18 2004 13:26:03 ET October 18, 2004 The Defiance County Sheriff's Office arrested Chad Staton, age 22, of Stratton Ave., Defiance, on a charge of False Registration, in Violation of Section 3599.11 of the Ohio Revised Code, a felony of the fifth degree. The SheriffÕs Office alleges that Staton filled out over 100 voter registration forms that were fictitious. Staton was to be paid for each registration form that he could get citizens to fill out. However, Staton himself filled out the registrations and returned them to the woman who hired him from Toledo, Ohio. Deputies allege that Staton was paid crack cocaine for the falsified registrations. Defiance Deputies along with Toledo Police Department detectives conducted a search warrant of a residence on Woodland in Toledo, believed to be the home of the woman who hired Staton to solicit voter registration. Officers confiscated drug paraphernalia along with voter registration forms from the home. The occupant of the home, Georgianne Pitts, age 41, advised law enforcement, along with Ohio B.C.I.&I., that she had been recruited by Thaddeus J. Jackson, II, of Cleveland, to obtain voter registrations. Pitts admitted to paying Staton crack cocaine for the registrations in lieu of money. A business card provided by Pitts indicated that Jackson is the Assistant NVF Ohio Director of the NAACP National Voter Fund. The initial complaint received by the Sheriff's Office came from the Defiance County Board of Elections. The Board had received the 100 plus registration forms from the Cuyahoga Board of Elections that had been submitted to the Cuyahoga Board by the NAACP National Voter Fund. Developing...

Kerry is a bigger lier than I thought. He has got the jobless rate totally wrong. Jawa has a good post all about this. The more I hear about the lies that Kerry spouts out the more I get angry. Along with the DNC telling people to take pre-emptive strikes at the pols. It makes me never want to vote for a Democrat. It is just getting idiotic with the DNC. All they have is fear and lies about the Republicans.

W is for Women Is a picture worth a thousand votes? Posted by Hello Found at Slant Point

Chrenkoff has a good post about the "real alliances"

I gather from the above that for Kerry a real alliance is some sort of an international kick-ass rainbow coalition, a United Nations with their helmet on and a gun held firmly in their collective hand, linking arms and sharing the burden all the way with the USA. Alas, the truth of the matter is that in every conflict last century, save for the two world wars, the United States always provided the bulk of the fighting force and the resources, be it in Korea, Vietnam, the First Gulf War or in any of the smaller engagements around the globe. It's a fact of life that Kerry has great problems accepting. Having personal attachments to two members of the "unreal coalition" (Australia and Poland) I continue to find Kerry's denigration of America's current allies to be tiresome and disappointing, but most of all laughable. John Edwards talks a lot about "two Americas", but it seems that there also "two universes"; the one where most of us live, and the one inhabited by John Kerry. The Kerryverse is a surreal, looking glass world where concepts are inverted on their head and meanings get twisted into cosmic pretzels of nuance.

Some Mistatements by Kerry in the 3rd Debate

Here are just a few of the mistatements by Kerry during the third debate from Frotntpage mag.com
Spinning facts and figures is as old as politics itself, but last night, Sen. John Kerry marshaled a mountain of distortions in his indictment of the Bush administration.

Here’s the rundown, reserved for purposes of clarity and brevity to the areas of economy and jobs, health care, and college costs:

Economy and Jobs

- Kerry claimed that during the Bush administration, “1.6 million jobs [were] lost.” In truth, the figure is half that. Only 800,000 net jobs have been lost, and even that figure is widely expected to be revised downward to 600,000. Considering that 9/11 wiped out 1 million jobs right away, and 1.5 million within a year—all coinciding with the inherited recession and the stock market correcting its irrational exuberance—Bush’s record on this count is, in fact, impressive.

- Kerry: “He’s the only president to have incomes of families go down for the last three years.” According to official U.S. Commerce Department figures, per-capita after-tax income is up 6 percent since December 2000—and that’s not even counting the results from the economic growth of 2004.

- Repeating a populist—and untrue—line from his stump speeches, Kerry said, “The jobs the president is creating pay $9,000 less than the jobs that we’re losing.” This sounds like a devastating indictment, and it plays right into the urban legend that disappearing manufacturing jobs are replaced by burger-flippers. According to the nonpartisan FactCheck.org, “Higher-paid occupations, like managers (who can be in any industry) and health professionals, are growing faster.” This claim is largely based on Federal Reserve of Chicago study released last month.

- In perhaps the most flagrant lie of the night, Kerry charged, “Under President Bush, the middle class has seen their tax burden go up and the wealthiest’s tax burden has gone down. Now that’s wrong.” No, Kerry’s wrong. The average family of four earning $40,000 has seen an average reduction of $1,900 (Bush said $1,700 in the debate). Either way, that constitutes a staggering 90 percent reduction from their previous income tax burden. And with the creation of the new 10 percent bracket, every person paying income taxes has received a tax cut. With respect to the other side of the class warfare argument, the top 1 percent now pays a slightly greater share of the overall tax burden than before.

Health care

- Kerry stated flatly, “I have a plan to cover all Americans.” The nonpartisan Lewin Group (which was cited by Bush) calculated that Kerry’s plan would cover only 25.2 million out of 45 million uninsured Americans. As President Bush noted during the debate, the Lewin Group also found that the 10-year price tag would be $1.2 trillion, roughly double the cost estimated by the Kerry camp—which would cover barely half the number of people Kerry claims it would.

- Without batting an eyelash, a dour Kerry pronounced, “Health-care costs for the average American have gone up 64 percent.” It’s not entirely clear what constitutes “health care costs,” but it is clear that health insurance premiums have not risen anywhere near that amount. The worst-case statistic, as calculated by the ultra-liberal Families USA (an organ of Big Labor), health insurance premiums have risen by 36 percent since 2000.

- Pulling a page from the Clinton handbook, Kerry said, “Five million Americans have lost their health insurance in this country.” In fairness to Kerry, this is an accurate statistic—but also incredibly misleading. Because of population growth, the percentage of the population that is uninsured is the same as it was in 1996 (15.6%), and below the level it was in 1998 (16.3%).

- Although not challenged by Bush afterward, Kerry threw out an eye-popping—and grossly exaggerated—figure. The Massachusetts liberal, when discussing the provision in the Medicare prescription drug bill that prohibits Medicare from negotiating with the drug companies, charged that this would cause a “$139 billion windfall profit to the drug companies coming out of your pockets.” The accountants behind the Academy Awards, Price Waterhouse Coopers, found that the impact on drug companies’ profits would be negligible or even negative.

College Costs

- In rattling off a litany of problems allegedly caused by Bush, Kerry claimed, “tuitions have gone up 35 percent.” Actually, they’ve gone down. From a June 28 cover story in USA Today: “What students pay on average for tuition at public universities has fallen by nearly one-third since 1998.”

- In one of the unintentionally funniest moments of the debate, Kerry countered what he himself had said earlier about Pell Grants. First, he said, “They’ve cut the Pell Grants and the Perkins loans to help kids be able to go to college.” After Bush called him on the fib by pointing out that the number of kids getting Pell Grants has gone up, Kerry admitted, “[T]he Pell Grants have gone up in their numbers.” He quickly added that this was “because more people qualify for them because they don’t have money.” Actually, the real reason is that eligibility rules have been loosened in order to allow more kids to qualify.

Whether or not most voters will see the real John Kerry’s come Election Day remains to be seen. May these facts aid them in the process.

Ohio Democrats Score Major Coup for Vote Fraud

This is just amazing. You can go anywhere and vote if it is in your own county. So I can go to every polling place and vote at every polling site and vote. This is just great. Nothing like "Vote Early and Vote Often". What a bunch of crap. What is so hard about going to your county courthouse and asking where you are supposed to vote at. It is not that hard and will only take a few minutes out of your time. No wonder there is so much confusion during elections. I know exactly where I am suppose to go and vote. Ann if you move you get a notification in the mail to tell you where to go and vote. If you don't just ask a county official where your correct polling place is. tehn we should not have all of the confusion and lawsuits after the election.
"In a victory for the Democrats, a federal judge ruled Thursday that Ohio voters who show up at the wrong polling place on Election Day can still cast ballots as long as they are in the county where they are registered," the Associated Press reported.... P.S.: In the nation's other most hotly contested state, Florida, Democrats and their thuggish, increasingly violence-prone allies in Big Labor are urging the Democrat-run state Supreme Court (yes, the same court that abetted Al Gore's failed coup attempt in 2000) to issue a similar ruling.

Men save signs for Bush in stakeout

More people should do this. I don't think anyone should defame or steal anyone's political signs. I think that all the people soing this to Buss signs and Kerry signs are just childish and should be stopped. This is property and if anyone does anything to anyone's signs they should be prosecuted to the fullest.

It only took three hours. At about 10 p.m. Tuesday, a 25-year-old Mercer Island man walked to a grassy area along the 6700 block of Island Crest Way and began to pull up Bush signs installed by the two men, police said.

The amateur detectives burst out of the woods and confronted the man, who was apologetic. The men detained him until police arrived.

The man was arrested and released on suspicion of third-degree theft, a misdemeanor, said Mercer Island police Sgt. Lance Davenport.

Kerry Lesbian Remark Angers Cheney

What the hell aere Edwards and Kerry trying to do with this. I think it is try to get Christian Conservative Republicans to go away from Cheney becasue he has a lesbian daughter. This is just the lowest of the lows in any campaign. this is just disgusting. I think that Kerry and Edwards should apologize to Mary Cheney and the American people for this total pandering. It is way out of bounds for any candidate to use. It is totally direspectful and incalled for.
The vice president's wife, Lynne Cheney, called Kerry "not a good man" and his remarks about daughter Mary Cheney "a cheap and tawdry political trick." Meanwhile, Elizabeth Edwards, the wife of vice presidential candidate John Edwards, suggested in a radio interview that Mrs. Cheney might feel "a certain degree of shame" because her daughter is a lesbian.
Cheney told supporters at a rally Thursday in Fort Myers, "You saw a man who will do and say anything to get elected, and I am not just speaking as a father here, although I am a pretty angry father." He made no other reference to Kerry's remarks about his daughter.

Declaration Of War!

The Barking Moonbats are going to be shaking in their boots. The Secratary of War at Barking Moonbat Early warning System has declared war on J F Kerry

Memo From The Desk Of: The BMEWS Secretary Of War Date: 12-OCT-2004 23:59:59 ZULU Subject: Operation Hammer

In a secret meeting today at the BMEWS War Room, hidden deep beneath Cheyenne Mountain, our Benevolent Dictator signed an official Declaration Of War against John Forbes Kerry. Operation Hammer will commence immediately and will continue for the next three weeks. This will involve a relentless assault on the slovenly, retarded storm troops of the Democratic Party.

Our Benevolent Dictator made the following statement as he signed the official declaration at the start of hostilities .... “FUCK ‘EM ALL!”.

“El Supremo”, as he is now designated, has promised a full frontal assault on the enemy forces. Prepare for the barrage.

The Secretary Of War, a.k.a. “Rumsfeld’s Evil Twin”, was tasked with drawing up plans for the blizzard of attacks on the Slithering Slippery Snake Kerry and his Rabid Rodent Edwards. When El Supremo was shown the plans, he immediately tacked them to the wall and took target practice for the remainder of the day.

Stay brave, stay aware and stay armed, troops! You’re either with us or you’re against us, and El Supremo says if you fit in the latter category, you better be able to outrun a .45 caliber shot.

So it is written, on this 12th day of October, 2004 and signed in blood by the Secretary Of War and El Supremo.

Old school days long gone, but not forgotten: Congressman's streaking stunt exposed

Now I know the Democrats have lost it. This is just amazing. A College prank brought into an election campaign. You have got to be kidding me. How many of you know of someone who has done something like this. We all do stupid things in our youth. It is well in the past and has no direct bearing on how anyone will govern. Whenever I think the Democrats can't go any lower, they just go lower and lower.
Old school days long gone, but not forgotten: Congressman's streaking stunt exposed

DALLAS The gloves have come off in a tight election race between two Texas congressmen -- and every other article of clothing appears to be fair game as well.

Democrats are circulating old newspaper clippings of a 1974 college streaking stunt staged by hundreds of students at what was then called Southwest Texas State University.One of the participants was an 18-year-old freshman named Pete Sessions -- who grew up to become a conservative Republican congressman.A Sessions spokesman says the congressman's "old school days are long gone" and that he recognizes the streaking stunt was "an immature action."But the campaign of Democrat Representative Martin Frost is holding his rival's bare body to the fire, saying he "exposed himself to children and strangers."The two incumbents are battling each other in a new Republican-leaning district in the Dallas area. Frost, Texas' senior congressman, had his district redrawn by Republicans last year.

Bush's Timber Company?

Her eis an interesting tid-bit about the timber company that Bush owns. I never would have thoght of this one. Thanks to Free Will for this one.
Does Bush own a timber company?
A lot of search traffic is getting directed here on this point, so I want to add something: Factcheck.org says that Bush "forgot" he owned a tree-growing company, arguing that Bush owns 50% of LSTF, LLC, a timber concern, through his trust fund, the Lone Star Trust. They also point out that both Kerry and Factcheck.org were in error to claim the $84 came from LSTF, since the Lone Star Trust did not own it's piece of LSTF in 2001, as Kerry claimed. (This was, though, just an error, not a lie.) However, Factcheck.org forgot something very important and material to the question: The Lone Star Trust is something called a blind trust. Like many politicians, Bush's assets are organized into a blind trust to avoid conflict of interest. In a blind trust, the beneficiary (in this case, Bush) has no idea nor any control over where the funds are invested. Bush's disclosures would be handled by his accountants and the trustees. In other words, Bush was legitimately shocked to hear the notion that he "owns a timber company". At best, he indirectly owns part of a timber company through an organization that operates independently of his control, and Factcheck.org, at best, is being misleading to say Bush "forgot" it. You can't forget something you simply never knew. So there, Googlers, is your answer.

Middle Class Said To Pay Higher Tax Rate Than Heinz Kerry And Kerry

Middle Class Said To Pay Higher Tax Rate Than Heinz Kerry And Kerry Mon Oct 11 2004 10:22:17 ET Stephen Moore, president of the Club for Growth, writes in the WALL STREET JOURNAL on Monday: "According to the Kerrys' own tax records, and they have not released all of them, the couple had a combined income of $6.8 million in income last year and paid $725,000 in income taxes. That means their effective tax rate was a whopping 12.8%.... "Under the current tax system the middle class pays far more than the Kerry tax rate. In fact, the average federal tax rate -- combined payroll and income tax -- for a middle-class family is closer to 20% or more. George W. and Laura Bush, who had an income one- tenth of the Kerrys', paid a tax rate of 30%. ... "Here is the man who finds clever ways to reduce his own tax liability while voting for higher taxes on the middle class dozens of times in his Senate career. He even voted against the Bush tax cut that saves each middle-class family about $1,000." The Kerrys "have unwittingly made the case for what George W. Bush says he wants to do: radically simplify and flatten out the tax code. ... So before John Kerry is given the opportunity to raise taxes again on American workers, shouldn't he and Teresa at least pay their fair share?"

Bush campaign to base ad on Kerry terror quote

Another reason not to vote for Kerry. He still doesn't get it. they are not a nusanaces, they asre enemies.

''We have to get back to the place we were, where terrorists are not the focus of our lives, but they're a nuisance,'' the article states as the Massachusetts senator's reply.

''As a former law enforcement person, I know we're never going to end prostitution. We're never going to end illegal gambling. But we're going to reduce it, organized crime, to a level where it isn't on the rise. It isn't threatening people's lives every day, and fundamentally, it's something that you continue to fight, but it's not threatening the fabric of your life.''

No WMD Stockpiles in Iraq? Not Exactly ...

Teh media is still decieving the [ublic about hte WMDs. Look at this article.
The press hasn't made much of Saddam's 500-ton uranium stockpile, downplaying the story to such an extent that most Americans aren't even aware of it.

But it's been reported - albeit in a by-the-way fashion - by the New York Times and a handful of other media outlets. And one of Saddam's nuclear scientists, Jaffar Dhia Jaffar, admitted to the BBC earlier this year, "We had 500 tons of yellow cake [uranium] in Baghdad."

Surely 500 tons of anything qualifies as a "stockpile." And press reports going back more than a decade give no indication that weapons inspectors had any idea the Iraqi dictator had amassed such a staggering amount of nuke fuel until the U.S. invaded.

That's when the International Atomic Energy Agency was finally able to take a full inventory, and suddenly the 500-ton figure emerged.

Still, experts say Saddam's massive uranium stockpile was largely benign.

Largely? Well, except for the 1.8 tons of uranium that Saddam had begun to enrich. The U.S. Energy Department considered that stockpile so dangerous that it mounted an unprecedented airlift operation four months ago to remove the enriched uranium stash from al Tuwaitha.

Bremer: Bush Is Still Right About Iraq

Bremer puts the record straight.
Friday, Oct. 8, 2004 3:56 p.m. EDT

Bremer: Bush Is Still Right About Iraq

Apparently tired of how the media establishment and its pet John Kerry have distorted his recent remarks on Iraq, former administrator L. Paul Bremer III has a column today in the worst offender, the New York Times.

<>Among his points:

  • "The press has been curiously reluctant to report my constant public support for the president's strategy in Iraq.

    "I have been involved in the war on terrorism for two decades, and in my view no world leader has better understood the stakes in this global war than President Bush."

  • "The president was right when he concluded that Saddam Hussein was a menace who needed to be removed from power.

    "He understands that our enemies are not confined to al-Qaida, and certainly not just to Osama bin Laden, who is probably trapped in his hide-out in Afghanistan.

    "As the bipartisan 9/11 commission reported, there were contacts between al-Qaida and Saddam Hussein's regime going back a decade. We will win the war against global terror only by staying on the offensive and confronting terrorists and state sponsors of terror - wherever they are.

    "Right now, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, a Qaida ally, is a dangerous threat. He is in Iraq."

  • "Mr. Kerry is free to quote my comments about Iraq.

    "But for the sake of honesty he should also point out that I have repeatedly said, including in all my speeches in recent weeks, that President Bush made a correct and courageous decision to liberate Iraq from Saddam Hussein's brutality, and that the president is correct to see the war in Iraq as a central front in the war on terrorism."

  • ABCNEWS POLITICAL DIRECTOR MEMO SPARKS CONTROVERSY: BOTH SIDES NOT 'EQUALLY ACCOUNTABLE'

    No bias here.
    Halperin Memo Dated Friday October 8, 2004 It goes without saying that the stakes are getting very high for the country and the campaigns - and our responsibilities become quite grave I do not want to set off (sp?) and endless colloquy that none of us have time for today - nor do I want to stifle one. Please respond if you feel you can advance the discussion. The New York Times (Nagourney/Stevenson) and Howard Fineman on the web both make the same point today: the current Bush attacks on Kerry involve distortions and taking things out of context in a way that goes beyond what Kerry has done. Kerry distorts, takes out of context, and mistakes all the time, but these are not central to his efforts to win. We have a responsibility to hold both sides accountable to the public interest, but that doesn't mean we reflexively and artificially hold both sides "equally" accountable when the facts don't warrant that. I'm sure many of you have this week felt the stepped up Bush efforts to complain about our coverage. This is all part of their efforts to get away with as much as possible with the stepped up, renewed efforts to win the election by destroying Senator Kerry at least partly through distortions. It's up to Kerry to defend himself, of course. But as one of the few news organizations with the skill and strength to help voters evaluate what the candidates are saying to serve the public interest. Now is the time for all of us to step up and do that right.

    THE ARMY WINS

    Here is a great editorial from NY Post It makes my feel great to see how good our troops ant hte Iraqi security forces are doing in Iraq. This is just what Bush and Cheney have been talking about. I read a news story earlier in the day at work where it said that the Iraqi peopl were so happy to see their own come in and take over the city. There were brimming with pride that their own army is taking it to the terrorists. We do nont neeed more troops in Iraq, it will only make the Iraqis more wary of our intentions. They need to work for their own freedom. And there are starting to do that now. They are not backing away like they did a few months ago. And wee need to train them to protect their own freedom. I want to thank all of our fighting men and women and thier Iraqi conuterparts in doing a good job in Iraq. Do not believe everything the liberal media and Kerry and his ilk are saying about Iraq. We are winning and we will win the War on terror. It will take a long time, adn we shall never back down and let International Tests take control of our foreign policy.
    THE ARMY WINS By RALPH PETERS
    Email Archives
    Print Reprint
    October 5, 2004 -- IN a remarkable display of skill, elements of the U.S. Army's 1st Infantry Division and newly trained Iraqi national forces drove the terrorists from the city of Samarra last week. Killing over 100 of freedom's enemies and capturing many more, our troops lost a single soldier.

    The two-day sweep through Samarra incorporated lessons learned on the ground over the past several months — especially the need to win swiftly in urban settings. Our soldiers performed flawlessly under difficult conditions. Iraqi commandos, backed by our Special Forces, liberated two key mosques before a hostile media could intervene on terror's behalf. The city's population is glad that their oppressors are gone.

    Has Sen. Kerry acknowledged the performance of our troops? Has he thanked them? Of course not. The senator and his posse of defeatists resent American victories in the final weeks before our presidential election.

    We're supposed to lose, you understand.

    There's an enormous and troubling disconnect between the situation on the ground in Iraq and the portrait of disaster hawked by Kerry & Co. — abetted by the media. The victims of this disinformation campaign are our soldiers, the American people and the law-abiding citizens of Iraq.

    Indeed, the Dems have declared defeat so loudly and insistently that they've convinced much of the world that freedom's cause is lost in the Middle East.

    But let me tell you who isn't convinced: Our soldiers. Last week, I was privileged to speak to — and listen to — hundreds of U.S. Army officers and enlisted soldiers at the Land Combat Exposition in Heidelberg, Germany — the headquarters of our ground troops in Europe. Even I was surprised by the complete absence of griping. I did not hear a single criticism of our engagement in Iraq.

    WASHINGTON - Syrian President Bashar Assad is offering to make peace with Israel and says he is ready to cooperate with the United States in stabilizing Iraq, a former senior State Department official said Wednesday. "Something is going on in Syria and it is time for us to pay attention," said Martin Indyk, assistant secretary of state for the Near East and U.S. ambassador to Israel during the Clinton administration. In a three-hour meeting with the Syrian president last month in Damascus, Indyk said he detected a "clear change" in Assad's views on a number of fronts.

    WTF!!!! What the hell is Kerry talking about. If you are not registered to vote where you live at now, then you are not allowed to vote. If you are not sure call you local election board to see. what is so hard about that. It will take a few minutes to see if you are registered in the right place. it is ridiculous to not see if you are registered in the right polling place on election day. This is not intimidation, it is called common sense. Also why is is so wrong to ask people to show some form of ID when they vote. you have to show ID when you cash a check, get on a plane adn various other things. Why are the Democrats so afraid of this. Could it be all the fraud that they do every election. "Vote Early and Vote Often' Maybe they wouldn't be able to get away with that one if people actually had to prove who they were. And how about all the dead people and dogs that vote for Democrats every election. Should they count in Kerry universe. And tell me why in the world you have lawyers ready to discount military votes. They have a right ot vote also. In 200 if all the military voteds counted, Bush would have won by a lot more than he did. So shut the hell up about disenfranchising people Kerry. And get your attack dogs to stop violating the law and trespassing on Republican Headquarters.

    "In battleground states across the country, we're hearing stories of how people are trying to make it harder to file for additional time, or how they're making it harder to even register," Kerry told an enthusiastic congregation at East Mt. Zion Baptist Church.

    "We're not going to let that happen because the memories of 2000 are too strong. We're not going to allow 1 million African Americans to be disenfranchised."

    At a stop in Ohio earlier Sunday, Kerry told a voter concerned about ballots cast by military personnel overseas that Democrats are aware of voting problems and are concerned.

    "We're seeing efforts by the Republicans, unfortunately, in various parts of the country to suppress votes and intimidate people, to do things that bring back memories that are pretty bitter in the American mind from the year 2000."

    Police discover five decapitated Iraqis

    Police have found five decapitated bodies of Iraqis in northern Iraqi cities, police and hospital officials said.

    They said two decapitated bodies were found dumped separately in central Mosul on Tuesday, two days after another was discovered near a bus station.

    Two had been identified and the third was also believed to be an Iraqi.

    There was no immediate word on who had beheaded the three men or on the motives for the killings.

    In Kirkuk, Lieutenant Colonel Awaad Jibouri said the corpse and head of a former Iraqi army officer, identified as Ali Hussein, was found in a town south-west of the city.

    Mr Hussein had worked at a United States military base in Kirkuk.

    A second Iraqi, identified as Taha Abdullah, who worked at a US barracks near Baiji, was also beheaded and his body was found on Monday night, Lieutenant Colonel Jibouri said.

    Militant groups fighting US-led forces and the US-backed Iraqi interim Government have beheaded half a dozen foreign hostages and several Iraqis in recent months.

    Insurgents have frequently targeted Iraqis and foreigners working for US forces in Iraq, from truck drivers to laundry workers.

    Comic Rodney Dangerfield Dies at Age 82

    This is a sad day. Rodney was one of my favorite comedians. I loved him in Caddy Shack. And he was a great stand-up comedian also. I loved his Young Comics specials. Rest In Peace.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) - Rodney Dangerfield, the bug-eyed comic whose self-deprecating one-liners brought him stardom in clubs, television and movies and made his lament "I don't get no respect" a catchphrase, died Tuesday. He was 82.

    Dangerfield, who fell into a coma after undergoing heart surgery, died at 1:20 p.m., said publicist Kevin Sasaki. Dangerfield had a heart valve replaced Aug. 25 at the University of California, Los Angeles, Medical Center.

    Sasaki said in a statement that Dangerfield suffered a small stroke after the operation and developed infectious and abdominal complications. But in the past week he had emerged from the coma, the publicist said.

    "When Rodney emerged, he kissed me, squeezed my hand and smiled for his doctors," Dangerfield's wife, Joan, said in the statement. The comic is also survived by two children from a previous marriage.

    I think that Cheney did very good. I think that Checney won the debate. Edwards looked very outclassed by Cheney. Cheney looked like the more informed candidate and Kerry looked like he was in a debate calss in high school. Tell me what you think???? What deos Edwards mean by winning the peace. What the hell does that mean?????? When we went after Osama in Afghanistan we outsorced it tthe special forces along with the Afghans. I still want to know how they would be different in the Iraqi War. it seems they are just saying they would do the same as Bush, but better. How???????? How can anybody think that Kerry has had a consistant stance on Iraq. He has been all over the place. And when did anybody in the administration say that Saddam had anything to do with 9/11. Saddam ewas haboring terrorists and Bush has said he was going to go after terrorists and those who harbor terrorists.

Among the evidence found with the suspects were reconnaissance reports on major U.S. financial sites—including the New York Stock Exchange and the World Bank in Washington.

    But senior U.S. law-enforcement officials tell TIME they are continuing to follow the case closely and are learning even more disturbing details about what the group may have been plotting.

    Reports on the British investigation, now circulating among U.S. law-enforcement agencies, assert that the group was trying to construct a crude radiological dirty bomb. The arrests (which followed a yearlong surveillance operation, code-named Operation Spangle) turned up a cache of household smoke detectors, which the British suspect the group wanted to cannibalize for their minute quantities of americium-241, a man-made radioactive chemical.
