Hillary Rodham Clinton's Class Warfare


"I have nothing against rich people... but what made America great is the
middle class."
Most Liberals, depending on the venue, vacillate between their canned adoration of the middle class and the poor as they who built America. What a crock of crap. Americans of all economic levels built and made America great, and yes, rich people are included.

Class warfare as a political tool.

Clinton credited the union movement with building the middle class. She
said she thinks it should be easier to join unions and said she supports a
union-supported method of organizing called "card check."


The union is negotiating its contract with MGM Mirage, Harrah's
Entertainment and other casinos on the Las Vegas Strip. The group's presidential
endorsement is expected to be key to winning Nevada January 19 Democratic
caucus.


Using "card check" intimidation instead of the secret ballot is a great way to build the middle class. It is kind of like "You'll eat your spinach and like it" except my parents didn't use weapons and violence on me.

I'm sure that Senator Clinton knows these economic figures, but like all progressives she lies ignores them and feeds pablum to those just trying to make ends meet for votes. The top the top 20 percent of earners pay more than 74 percent of taxes while the bottom 50 percent of income earners, on the other hand, pay less than 5 percent of income taxes, but why not lie when you gain votes by making achievers look evil.

The real tax increase is the swelling federal and state budgets that now underwrite expenditures of seemingly everything and everyone except the middle class and the rich, but with her socialist style health/welfare system, Senator Clinton hopes to buy the votes of the middle class. The tremendous rise in medical and medicine costs can be directly pinned to the extraordinary rise in governmental regulation, legislation and interference and lawsuits filed or threatened.

It's as if there is a coordinated plan to increase the cost of necessities to allow for an increase of governmental oversight and bureaucracy which means more tax increases all to make the government more indispensable. This all comes at a cost of making citizens powerless to control all of this largess and the departments that control it. As an experiment, try reading and tracking earmarks or any state or federal department's budget. Begin there. If you can get the information.

The real issue of "class warfare" as a political tool is that when it is successfully used the losers are the middle class and the working poor and the only winner is government and the bureaucrats that run it. That includes senators and representatives.

Weegee









Arthur Fellig (June 12, 1899 - December 26, 1968)

Fellig got the name Wegee because he had the uncanny ability to photographing crime scenes minutes after the crime and before the police had arrived. Weegee is Ouija as in Ouija Board. His photography was a gritty and stark recording of NYC and its violence, its street life, and culture. I often thought of Weegee's work as a modern Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.

I will not show the more graphic photos, but for a more in depth look at his work go here and here.

Fire Ward Churchill Says UC Pres

DENVER — The president of the University of Colorado has
recommended that a professor who likened some Sept. 11 victims to a Nazi should
be fired, according to the professor and the school.

Ward Churchill, a tenured professor of ethnic studies, has denied
the allegations and threatened a lawsuit if he is dismissed.

CU President Hank Brown made the recommendation in a 10-page letter
sent to the chair of the committee that handles tenure issues. University
spokeswoman Michele McKinney confirmed published reports about the
recommendation Monday but said the school would not make the letter
public.

"I've got more faith in almost anything (than in the university
process)," he said. "A random group of homeless people under a bridge would be
far more intellectually sound and principled than anything I've encountered at
the university so far."
Ward " Strutting Bull" Churchill is a Tiny Goebbels.

39 Ways to Leave Your Lover

I was reading Sniper One, which I do everyday, and I came across his post on Azzam the American, aka Adam Gaddahn, who has posted some demands to America. It is a must read. I love the fact that this wackjob loves a band named Xenocide. In Sniper’s link to the source at Laura Mansfield I saw something else that is from 2003, but is posted periodically for any slacker jihadist needing a pep talk.

This was written by Mohammad Bin Ahmad Al-Salem:

39 Ways to Serve and Participate in Jihad
The only solution is the greatest jihad
World peace no longer suits us.
No peace with the enemies--this is the law
And the creed in each Muslim heart.

I arrived at this premise--that jihad is the Muslim community's only
option and its clear obligation--after consulting with one of the brothers. I
decided to write a book about the practical actions that anyone can take to
serve the jihad and those who fight it, advancing the jihad no matter how
insolent the aggressors become(1).



A couple of my personal favorites:

31. Hostility and Hatred of the Infidels
32. Trying to Ransom Prisoners
34. Electronic Jihad
36. Raising Children To Love Jihad and Those Who Wage It

and:

A failure to engage in and prepare for jihad is considered a sign of
hypocrisy. The prophet said, "Whoever has died without fighting and resolving to
fight has died on a branch of hypocrisy."

Feeling perky now? If not read the whole thing so when jihad comes to your neighborhood you’ll be up to date on how to be part of “Kill the Jews and Christians Day(s)”.

Fun will be had by all!

Shared Prosperity or Socialism by Hillary Clinton

America's most shrill voice of the Nannanista Movement, Hillary Clinton, has finally come out of the closet. Her form of government will be the engine of the economy, not business and industry. Her form of government will control all facets of our life and that of business for a governmental guarantee of "fairness".

We Are All in It Together, Clinton Says

"Fairness doesn't just happen. It requires the right government
policies."



If you read her talking points, they are eerily similar to the main assistance points that Cuba gave the Sandinistas after they seized Nicaragua.

Government health care
Government vocational education
Government industry building and control

With Bush on the ropes and all of the whining by Republicans and Conservatives it is hard for some people to see where politicians like Clinton, Pelosi, Edwards, BarACK, et al want to take our country.

Clinton using these talking points to garner support in a vocational school is just more of the same old Liberal use of class warfare for political gain.

That Nannanistas pander for votes is nothing new. After all they believe the idea of "mother knows best" is a good one, but in their version, "mother" is the government.

Didn't Uncle Joe try this?

UPDATE: Gateway Pundit has more!
As does Don Surber. Hill should share. Not the love. Please.

Environmentalists Plus Government Equals Empty Gas Tank

Why Not Build a New Refinery?

Financing, permits, environmental concerns and the securing of oil supplies are all substantial hurdles for any company to construct a new
refinery.

"Clean" refineries are expensive, and despite recent profits the refinery business has traditionally been low profit margin business. The last refinery was built in 1976 in Garyville, La.

Mistress Mansion Open for Madding Crowd

Beach Club for All

Built in the roaring 20s by newspaper baron William Randolph Hearst for Marion Davies, his blonde silent-film-star lover, the estate hosted stars like Cary Grant. Gloria Swanson and Clark Gable once roamed the 100 rooms of the Georgian revival mansion, and Charlie Chaplin enjoyed a splash or two in the 110-foot, Italian-marble saltwater swimming pool.


Today the swimming pool, along with the guesthouse known as the North House, are the only structures that remain of the jazz-age house of pleasure. But, with time and a lot of money, the site of the Marion Davies Estate will once again become a place of frolicking and fun, but this time not only for the elite.

Embezzling stripper off to jail in NASCAR case

Stripper gets 40 months for embezzlement

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - A former stripper was sentenced to nearly three-and-a-half
years in federal prison Friday for attempting to embezzle more than $1 million
from a bank to start her own NASCAR racing team.
Moonshine, strippers and NASCAR. Is America great or what!

NYT's Salute to the Troops on Memorial Day

As Allies Turn Foe, Disillusion Rises in Some G.I.’s


Oh, and as usual, the NYTs doesn't slant the news. I mean, be fair, they just report what they hear. When they actually show up and take the earplugs out. Eating good food and drinking good whiskey does cut into the work day. If one was an actual reporter.

This is a disgusting, even by their standard, ploy to shape the news they see fit to print to the slant they want.

They dishonor America's soldiers and they dishonor America's fallen soldiers.

They have no shame. The arrogant bastards.

EXTRA, EXTRA: FREYSINGER FOR PRESIDENT

The EU is aghast! Good. They're called the "old world" for a reason. And it ain't the art.

Swiss move to ban minarets
“We have our civil laws here,” insisted Mr Freysinger. “Banning minarets
would send a clear signal that our European laws, our Swiss laws, have to be
accepted. And if you want to live here, you must accept them. If you don’t, then
go back.”

...

"I think Swiss Muslims will be angry and bitter over this," said Reinhard
Schulze, professor of Islamic Studies at Berne University. "And we know that
anger and bitterness among a community can lead to radicalisation, even to
militancy."


Or as Charles Johnson at Little Green Footballs puts it:
Professor of Islamic studies Reinhard Schulze warns that any hint that Muslims
are not peaceful might result in violence.

Put another way, if you don't want rabid OSU fanatics who want the law to allow babies from Michigan to be eaten in your neighborhood, simple solution, ban all OSU games from TV, cable, radio and print. Problem solved. A Buckeye who can't watch, with almost religious hope, OSU beat Michigan into a pulp, will move out and other Buckeyes will not move in.

Simply put, Tressel is the imam and we answer to his call. No Tressel, no Shoe, no Buckeye.

Do you really think Fred Thompson would allow a minaret in his town? The first fatwah on any Americanism and he'd collapse it just by thinking it. Then his turban vision would set afire the fatwah issuer.

By chance, is Fred Swiss?

Memorial Day: A Day of Rememberance

BROADCAST FROM THE OVAL ROOM OF THE WHITE HOUSE, NATIONALLY, AND OVER A WORLD-WIDE HOOKUP
DECEMBER 9, 1941 -- 10:00 PM

...

And what we have learned is this:

There is no such thing as security for any nation -- or any individual
-- in a world ruled by the principles of gangsterism. There is no such thing as
impregnable defense against powerful aggressors who sneak up in the dark and
strike without warning.

We have learned that our ocean-girt hemisphere is not immune from
severe attack -- that we cannot measure our safety in terms of miles on any map
any more.

We may acknowledge that our enemies have performed a brilliant feat of
deception, perfectly timed and executed with great skill. It was a thoroughly
dishonorable deed, but we must face the fact that modern warfare as conducted in
the Nazi manner is a dirty business. We don't like it -- we didn't want to get
in it -- but we are in it and we're going to fight it with everything we've got.

I do not think any American has any doubt of our ability to administer
proper punishment to the perpetrators of these crimes. Your Government knows
that for weeks Germany has been telling Japan that if Japan did not attack the
United States, Japan would not share in dividing the spoils with Germany when
peace came. She was promised by Germany that if she came in she would receive
the complete and perpetual control of the whole of the Pacific area -- and that
means not only the Ear East, but also all of the Islands in the Pacific, and
also a stranglehold on the west coast of North, Central and South America. We
know also that Germany and Japan are conducting their military and naval
operations in accordance with a joint plan. That plan considers all peoples and
nations which are not helping the Axis powers as common enemies of each and
every one of the Axis powers.

That is their simple and obvious grand strategy. And that is why the
American people must realize that it can be matched only with similar grand
strategy. We must realize for example that Japanese successes against the United
States in the Pacific are helpful to German operations in Libya; that any German
success against the Caucasus is inevitably an assistance to Japan in her
operations against the Dutch East Indies; that a German attack against Algiers
or Morocco opens the way to a German attack against South America and the Canal.

On the other side of the picture, we must learn also to know that
guerilla warfare against the Germans in, let us say Serbia or Norway, helps us;
that a successful Russian offensive against the Germans helps us; and that
British successes on land or sea in any part of the world strengthen our hands.

Remember always that Germany and Italy, regardless of any formal
declaration of war, consider themselves at war with the United States at this
moment just as much as they consider themselves at war with Britain or Russia.
And Germany puts all the other Republics of the Americas into the same category
of enemies. The people of our sister Republics of this Hemisphere can be honored
by that fact.

The true goal we seek is far above and beyond the ugly field of battle.
When we resort to force, as now we must, we are determined that this force shall
be directed toward ultimate good as well as against immediate evil. We Americans are not destroyers -- we are builders.

We are now in the midst of a war, not for conquest, not for vengeance, but for a world in which this nation, and all that this nation represents, will be safe for our children. We expect to eliminate the danger from Japan, but it would serve us ill if we accomplished that and found that the rest of the world was dominated by Hitler and Mussolini.

So we are going to win the war and we are going to win the peace that
follows.

And in the difficult hours of this day -- through dark days that may be
yet to come -- we will know that the vast majority of the members of the human
race are on our side. Many of them are fighting with us. All of them are praying
for us. But, in representing our cause, we represent theirs as well -- our hope
and their hope for liberty under God.

Rosie O'Donnell. I Blame Ed McMahon

Which wag stated "Can you quote a yawn?"

Let's take a look at some Rosie moments that make all go fuzzy and warm all over, which, now that I think about that, makes me want to take a shower.
"You know what concerns me? How many Supreme Court judges are
Catholic?"

"You know, you can imagine in China it's like, 'Ching-chong, ching-chong.
Danny DeVito. Ching-chong, ching-chong-chong. Drunk. The View.
Ching-chong.'"

"There were 15 British sailors and marines who apparently went in to
Iranian waters and they were seized by the Iranians. And I have one thing to
say. Gulf of Tonkin. Google it."

"The British did it on purpose. (They went) into Iranian waters as the U.S.
military builds up on the Iranian border. We will be in Iran before summer as
planned."

"655,000 Iraqi civilians dead. Who are the terrorists?" She further
explained, "If you were in Iraq and another country, the United States, the
richest in the world, invaded your country and killed 655,000 of your citizens,
what would you call us?"

I do believe that it's the first time in history that fire has ever melted
steel. I do believe that it defies physics that World Trade Center tower 7 —
building 7, which collapsed in on itself — it is impossible for a building to
fall the way it fell without explosives being involved. World Trade Center 7.
World Trade Center 1 and 2 got hit by planes — 7, miraculously, the first time
in history, steel was melted by fire. It is physically impossible. To say that
we don’t know that it imploded, that it was an implosion and a demolition, is
beyond ignorant. Look at the films, get a physics expert here [on the show] from
Yale, from Harvard, pick the school — [the collapse] defies reason.

"Well, then, get away from the fear. Don't fear the terrorists. They’re
mothers and fathers."

"All right, but wait. When you go to war, we have the United–we have the
United Nations, and the United Nations is the one who says, as the world voice,
what they condone and what they condemn. And the U.N. had said we could not do it, and every other nation in the world, besides England, who’s on our side and
in our pocket, they said it was a bad idea. "

"I believe in state sponsored terrorism. I believe there is government
sponsored terrorism in every nation in the world, including ours."

"It was interesting to note that President Bush was flying to Virginia Tech
today and took him a week to get to ... Katrina to visit the victims [...] You
can’t pretend that it’s the same. How many people died in Katrina?"

"You are not allowed to own a gun, and if you do own a gun, I think you
should go to prison."

"It was always my dream to give an old, bald billionaire a boner."

"Eat me."


Not a snowball's chance in Hell Rosie. Not even if you had a billion. Not even if you weren't bat crap crazy. Which you are. You need help.

Oh, Ed McMahon's daughter told him about Rosie and he put her on his "talent" show. Shame on you Ed.

Al Gore slams 'trivialities and nonsense' in news media

Former US vice president Al Gore on Friday criticized the "trivialities and nonsense" of celebrity gossip in the media and called on people to focus instead on issues like Iraq and climate change.

Gore, who is promoting his new book "The Assault on Reason," made the comments at a book signing in New York, where he was treated to a rock star reception by more than 1,300 cheering and screaming fans.

"What is it about our collective decision-making process that has led us to
this state of affairs where we spend much more time in the public forum talking
about -- or receiving information about --
Britney Spears shaving her head or Paris Hilton going to jail?" Gore asked.

He lamented what he described as the "destruction of the boundary between news and entertainment" and said the United States was "vulnerable as a democracy to mass and continuing distraction."


The guy that sweats like a perp on Meth and jets his circus around the world to wow devoted groupies and pimps for a statue from the Hollywood crowd now wants to draw the line between news and entertainment?
That's Chutzpah the size of a pair of brass bowling balls. Somewhat like, "A boy, having just been convicted of murdering his parents, begs the judge for leniency because he is an orphan."

Memorial Day Weekend and The Troops

This is something I try to always do. When there is no drink or food involved, without making a big deal out of it, I shake hands and thank them for their service.

Instapundit said: Last night while hanging out in the bar with Rand Simberg and Dale Amon (of Samizdata), I saw some British soldiers at the other end. I had the waitress send them a round of drinks. She wasn't supposed to tell them who did it, but apparently those guys are good at extracting information and their CO came over to say thanks. He said that it meant a lot to his men: they don't get a lot of support from the public in Britain and that they like it when they're in the U.S. for training, etc., because the American public is more supportive. I thought that was kind of sad, actually, but I was glad to do something for them. When I'm out and see military folks I often try to pick up their tab anonymously; this is the first time someone's blabbed. I encourage InstaPundit readers to do the same if the mood strikes you. I think it's appreciated, and not just because of the free food or drink.

If you haven't yet done this, Memorial Day Weekend is as good a time as ever to start. Thank them for their mission too. That way you won't be mistaken for a "troop supporting" Democrat or Ron Paul Libertarian.

Ron Paul and My Mis-Spent Youth.

When I started in politics, I read, listened and studied everything and everybody I could. I read the Washington Post AND The New York Times. In my family they were referred to as the Uptown and the Downtown Daily Worker. I read The Economist religiously and still had until a year or two ago when they went south in the smarts department. I even went to hear Lyndon H. LaRouche Jr speak once. Well, it was before he went to prison.

I first heard Ron Paul on the radio. I think it was around 1975. I was working in Manhattan at the time, had little money and the library and the radio were free. Given my background there were some things I liked, such as Paul was a Doctor, he had served in the military and he was more Libertarian than Republican. In many ways Ron Paul reminded me of my father.It was pre-RR.

Unfortunately, Ron Paul has gone south.

I could state a few reasons such as problems with ghost writers and non-interventionist foreign policy, but the Greater War on Terror and Iraq alone are issues enough to state, "lights on, nobody's home". The world is a smaller place and getting more dangerous. I would prefer that my children do not have to fight this war on their home turf.

But, he had to say this:
They’re not attacking us because we’re rich and free, they’re attacking us
because we’re over there.


Huh? Oh, his followers will whine about how he's right, the Constitution, blah, blah, blah. Lookit young'uns, I have read the Constitution. I have also read about the Barbary Pirates, so can it.

The above statement from Paul is way to close to "You started it", "Uh-UH, you started it", "Did not", "Did TOO".

Ron Paul is lowering the importance of the War on Terror and the issue that these people want to come here and kill us to the level of two fifth graders?

No wonder Andrew Sullivan agrees with Ron Paul.

Take'm to the woodshed.

I'm Also Glad This Week Is Over.

Space Pimps For Mugger Murtha

5/17/2007
Space is leading freshman members of Congress in calling for a
comprehensive overhaul of the ethics oversight process. Space is advocating the
creation of a nonpartisan, independent entity that will vet, initiate, and
conduct possible investigations to eliminate the systemic problems of having
members investigate other members.

“But we need to do more. We need a new system to ensure such ethics
problems are a thing of the past," Space said. "We can no longer allow the fox
to guard the hen house. We must remove politics from ethics oversight as part of
this effort to restore America's faith in our elected officials.”

"Members of Congress must know that it they break the rules, they will be caught and punished. We have a sad history of members breaking House rules and federal law because they never believed they would be caught. That must change," Space said.


But

5/22/2007

The Murtha episode began when Mr. Rogers unsuccessfully sought to remove a $23
million “earmark,” or pet spending item inserted by a member, that Mr. Murtha
had tucked into an intelligence-spending bill. The money was to pay for a
drug-intelligence center in his hometown, Johnstown, Pa.

Mr. Murtha, the chairman of the defense subcommittee on the House Appropriations Committee, is not used to having his power questioned. He has been known to explain to members “the facts of life,” meaning that he will punish those who obstruct him.

So Mr. Murtha stormed across the House floor last Thursday and berated Mr. Rogers publicly. “I hope you don’t have any earmarks in the defense appropriations bills,” Mr. Murtha fumed. “You will not get any earmarks, now and forever.”

Whereupon Mr. Rogers filed the motion to censure Mr. Murtha, a motion that would have had no practical effect but might have made Democrats even more uncomfortable.
Next we have the vote to decide whether to go forward and debate censuring Mugger Murtha.

The motion was tabled (killed) by a vote of 219 – 189 with 13 voting “present”. The Space Avenger voted to table.

Congressman Zack is a quick learner (5 days from C-Span to the vote). Knowing that he’d never get funding for, say, The Space House Institute of Technology to be built in his district or any other project he wants, Space did the ethical thing and voted to support Murtha's lack of ethics.

You see, actually voting to support ethics in the House could have been hurtful to his district so his vote against ethics was actually ethical, you know, for the children.

My teacher was right. Space is a void.

Why The Immigration Bill Should Die

See Jane Mom has a Goth view of the Immigration Bill.

When in Rome.... Well maybe not.

Boehner Pungentry

Ben Keeler has a good story on Congressman Boehner's opinion of the Immigration Bill.

Edwards for President

My vote in the primary would have to go for Edwards. That is since Kucinich's thing isn't going anywhere.

Why?

Edwards know the quality of a good haircut, but hasn't a clue about any cost/benefits idea as long as it looks pretty. That, my dear people, just screams Congress and big government bureaucracy. What a pretty ménage à trois.

Edwards is a fast learner. In just a few years he has made Kerry's flip-flopping look small and using that cost/benefit thingy, Edwards has gold plated his flip-flops which makes them look prettier.

Edwards knows economics better than us. He blackmailed large corporations into paying his clients huge sums of money, got his beak wet channeling dead children for a part of the payoff and then invested it in off shore hedge funds which invested it in pirate loot making even more money. That is really understanding how an economy works!

Edwards understands the issue of poverty. For $55,000 he'll clue you in.

Edwards understands family values. Between the pools and the basketball court he has been able to grasp the real meaning of hearth and home. The indoor pool was just the right temperature. Edwards is modest enough not to reveal whether his grasp was grasped at the DC mansion or the one in NC.

Edwards has a fair tax plan for both Americas. He also has one for himself in the Cayman Islands with his pirate loot. To him that is fair.

Edwards will defend America best. To pay tribute to America's fallen soldiers he advises people to make signs with “SUPPORT THE TROOPS - END THE WAR” and display them along local parade routes for veterans. Oh, and take lots of digital pictures so he can display them on his website.

This is just a short list of why I support Edwards, Democrat, for President. He is our regular Joe Democrat. Just like his regular Joe Democrat peers in Congress, he's wealthy, a partisan hack, a flip-flopper extraordinaire, is better than us, knows more than us and is just pompous enough to explain our ineptness at understanding the American Dream.

If only Kucinich had had the foresight to screw people for his way to wealth, he now could rent Edwards as his Mini-Me, but, ah, there is still hope for an Edwards Kucinich ticket. I feel vapors coming on.

AN ATHEIST IN THE WOODS

An atheist was walking through the woods.
"What majestic trees"!
"What powerful rivers"!
"What beautiful animals"!
He said to himself.

As he was walking alongside the river, he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him. He turned to look. He saw a 7-foot grizzly charge towards him. He ran as fast as he could up the path. He looked over his shoulder & saw that the bear was closing in on him.

He looked over his shoulder again, & the bear was even closer. He tripped & fell on the ground. He rolled over to pick himself up but saw that the bear was right on top of him, reaching for him with his left paw & raising his right paw to strike him. At that instant the atheist cried out,

"Oh my God!"

Time Stopped.
The bear froze.
The forest was silent.

As a bright light shone upon the man, a voice came out of the sky.

"You deny my existence for all these years, teach others I don't exist and even credit creation to cosmic accident."

"Do you expect me to help you out of this predicament? Am I to now count you as a believer"?

The atheist looked directly into the light, "It would be hypocritical of me to suddenly ask You to treat me as a Christian now, but perhaps You could make the BEAR a Christian"?

"Very Well," said the voice.

The light went out. The sounds of the forest resumed. And the bear dropped his right paw, brought both paws together, bowed his head & spoke:

"Lord bless this food, which I am about to receive from thy bounty
through Christ our Lord, Amen
."

Iraq: A Rush to War

Cliff notes for Liberals

What was the environment that led President Bush to make war on the Iraqi government?

1991 - Post "Desert Storm"

UN’s Oil for Food program was corrupt and well known within governmental intelligence organizations

Illegal arms and military technology sales to Iraq by France, Germany, Russia, China and North Korea

UN mandated destruction of Iraqi chemical, biological, nuclear and long range missile programs

UN verification process begins

Enforcement of northern and southern no-fly zones in Iraq

1998 “regime change” authorization signed as law by President Bill Clinton

9/11

2001 – 2003

In his 2003 State of the Union address, Bush stated: “Some have said we must not act until the threat is imminent. Since when have terrorists and tyrants announced their intentions, politely putting us on notice before they strike? If this threat is permitted to fully and suddenly emerge, all actions, all words and all recriminations will come too late. Trusting in the sanity and restraint of Saddam Hussein is not a strategy, and it is not an option.”

Invasion of Iraq as part of the greater War on Terror

Introduction of a more moderate based democracy in the Middle East

Iraqi brutality and genocide on its own people

Iraq’s history of invasion and war with other countries

Iraq’s 12-year violation of the gulf war cease-fire (not surrender or a truce)

Escalation of terrorism by Islamic fanatics

Iraq’s ties to al-Qaeda

Iraq monetary and training support of terrorism

A long history of Iraq's violations of numerous UN resolutions (at least 17)

Worldwide intelligence confirms Iraq possession of weapons of mass destruction

Iraq refuses to allow UN verification program unfettered access.

Iraq's disarmament was supported by a majority of Congress, who passed the Joint Resolution to Authorize the Use of United States Armed Forces Against Iraq on the 11 October 2002.

In March 2003, about 40 nations announce the “Coalition of the Willing” to weigh military options and plans.

March 20, 2003 “Operation Iraqi Freedom” begins.

Monday morning quarterbacking is just as boring as office bitching. Neither accomplish anything good.

A Just God

Man's plot to kill girlfriend ends with his death

A CALIFORNIAN man who tried to kill his girlfriend by leaving her in a car
parked across railway lines was himself killed when an oncoming train hurled the
car into him as he fled.


I hope it was a Olds Delta 88. With a really big hood ornament. And an anvil in the trunk.

Do the Faithful Destroy Their Own Historic Religious Sites?





No. They are mere terrorists. What does this make the Imams allied with them?

Malwiya Minaret

Built in the time of the caliph al-Mutawakkil

The story:

R. Teygeler, "Malwiya, Samarra," in Iraqcrisis, online, April 4, 2005: "... it took me over 2 months to convince the occupying force[r]s in Samarra to retire the snipers on the minaret. ... Not soon after the tower got damaged by the insurgents. Let there be no mistake that this example shows that the insurgents are the ones who damaged their own 1100-year-old splendid ziggurat, a highlight of Iraqi cultural heritage." [actually, this isn't a ziggurat which was a Mesopotamian rectangular, terraced temple tower serving as a pedestal for a temple on top; this minaret (a tower connected with a mosque functioning a bit like a steeple of a church) is almost unique, the few other ones like it are imitations; some early European travelers did mistake it for the Tower of Babel (the ziggurat of Babylon), hence the paintings that use this form for the Biblical building; it may have been inspired by a type of Persian towers]; "Drs René Teygeler[,] former Senior Advisor [,] IRMO [Iraqi] Ministry of Culture"

Jimmy Carter, Worst President. Let His Words Speak For Him

Jimmy Carter, pot calling the kettle black and other useless thoughts about of the most worthless man to ever occupy the Oval Office.

Liar, plagiarizer, anti-Semite and terror apologist.


Carter’s new book belongs in fiction

December 17, 2006 Jimmy Carter has written a dreadful book about Palestine and
turned himself into the next thing to a shill for terrorists.

Carter as the Mufti proof reader and apologist.

Carter's Protocols have already, and quickly, found enough readers to make
it a best-seller. But Professor Kenneth W. Stein is not buying. Stein, an associate of Carter's for some 23 years, has now disassociated himself from Carter, citing the book's "factual errors" and "glaring omissions" and "invented segments." Stein adds
that the book's "one-sided nature" is "meant to provoke."

For some time, word circulated about a certain ex-president who actually
helped Yasser Arafat write his speeches in order to polish that mass murderer
into a more presentable figure for the American people. Americans couldn't
stomach Arafat's own kampf to "drive the Jews into the sea," so Jimmy Carter, it
was said, changed that - only the words, not the intent - to, "We want peace."

Many of us found that hard to believe about an ex-president "who builds
homes," and it is still difficult to prove, but now, with this book, we can
believe anything. The unintended subliminal message from the pages of this
updated Mein Kampf is that, with people like Jimmy Carter on the prowl, the need
for a strong Israel, supported by righteous Jews and true Christians, is more
urgent than ever.

That we Americans survived a man like this as president says much for the
strength of our country. Yes, we survived and so will Israel.

If you can't read Carter's book, read his lips, as I did on C-Span.

The man is an anti-Semite.

Outright lies by Carter to support his racist/terrorist subhumans

CARTER:
Page 197: Confessions extracted through torture are admissible in Israeli courts.

FACT:
Under Israeli criminal procedures when a person claims that his confession was extracted via torture, a "trial-within-a-trial" is immediately held (in Hebrew mishpat zuta) in which the prosecution must prove that torture or other illegitimate means were not used. If the prosecution is unable to disprove claims of torture the confession is thrown out. In addition, if it appears that other illegal means short of torture were used, the confession can be admitted, but only if the court finds that the interrogation did not prejudice the defendant’s free will. (See for example, The Right to a Fair Trial, D. Weissbrodt and R. Wolfrum, eds., Springer, 1997.) See more
details here.


Don't like Jews, join Jimmy's brigade of anti-Semites and don't forget to blame the Zionists.

'Too many Jews'

Posted: January 27, 20071:00 a.m. Eastern

"Too many Jews."

That was the comment former President Jimmy Carter scrawled on a memo
suggesting prospective members of the board of the Holocaust Memorial Council.

"Too many Jews."

That was the problem Carter saw with the names suggested by Monroe Freedman, executive director of the council, he revealed in a stunning interview with WND's Jerusalem bureau chief Aaron Klein this week.



Jimmy Carter may have Alzheimer's. He may just be stupid, because he is not ignorant. Jimmy Carter is probably just an anti-Semite, being the God fearing, bible thumping Baptist he is.

Shouldn't this scare his com padres at kos, this religious thing mixing with politics? Nah, they share the hate and the stupidity that makes their "religious" input acceptable. At least to them.

Carter's love for Yasser Arafat, unnatural in its self, is based on a shared love of National Socialism as practiced by Yasser's uncle when helping the Nazis and Sadaam's modeling of the Baathist Party.

I believe that Jimmy Carter should be charged with theft, because he steals, everyday, oxygen that could be used by authentic human beings.

British member of Parliament Lord Andrew Phillips

Lordy, Lordy, Lord Phillips. I guess you just don't think we can all be peers. Pretty snobby for a socialist. Pretty socialist for a Peer. Oh wait, you're a post WWII Baron. Uncle Joe and all, what.

“To hell with the Americans, frankly...”

“The roadmap has been a roadmap to nowhere. We have done absolutely nothing and the despair within Palestine, the sense of betrayal that they feel towards us in particular, the double standards and hypocrisy that they think we’re guilty of and which if I’m absolutely honest I can share that sensation.”

“I was impressed with Mr Haniyeh. He’s a moderate, he‘s doing his best, but he has no traction on that situation without legitimacy and some sign that the West takes him and his government seriously.”


Appears Andy, as a board member of BICC, may have some other reasons to dislike America in the Middle East.


About The British Iranian Chamber of Commerce

The BICC was created to develop trade, investment and business between the UK and Iran. It is the only body that exists solely to forward these aims and works closely in their achievement with its counterpart chamber in Iran (the Irano-British Chamber of Commerce, Industries and Mines). BICC’s Board has unrivalled experience of Iran and its business culture. BICC provides:

• business networking for Members, through meetings and events but also as
specifically requested
• a mechanism for promoting change in general UK/Iran trade and investment
practice
• business information on the two way economic relationship
• travel support services

You may be considering how to start your business activities in Iran; you
may already do business with Iran, but want to take stock or you may need
assistance in resolving a problem; you may want to find Iranian partners; you
may need assistance with government procedures; or you may wish to make new
contacts in government or business. If any of these propositions strikes a cord
in your mind why not talk to BICC for a fresh and informed view. Our aim is to
help you make significant progress with your business in Iran.

For over 340 years Parliament has proven the best reason for America's existence. Andy, who is on leave of absense as a lifetime peer, is a Sahib socialist for terrorists. Beats having to work for a living.

Frankly, to hell with Andy.

2008, Republican Backbone & Third Party Stupidity

This article from Riehl World View says better than I what I have felt for many years now, except for the third party idea that pops up when conservatives are feeling especially aggrieved.

Third party slates hurt Republicans (especially Conservatives) every single time. Do the history, do the math and it will tell you we get screwed. I am still hoping someday to run into Perot so I can look down on his pointy little head and ask him how his chart schtick is working for him now. "Ross for Boss", know what I mean?

The current immigration bill is just the symptom of the disease in the Republican Party. The disease is political deafness by party leaders and the esconsed politicians in their comfy seats in the clouds. The party cannot listen to their base anymore because they do not know who, what, or where their base is. That is how out of touch they are. The "Got a suburb? Send the direct mail, the TV, radio and door-to-door workers there and, viola, we win" advice that consultant/party "experts" have been handing out is wasting not just money, but hearts and minds. Oh, and elections.

To wit:


A Republican Landslide In The Making
Historically, the term landslide has meant a major victory by one political party over another. Republicans appear to want to re-define the term by embracing a position on immigration likely to cause the conservative land they've been trampling over for decades to give way.

Some have convinced themselves that the measure represents a good trade, i.e. amnesty for 12 million (which they privately acknowledge is the case) in exchange for beefed -up enforcement including a worker-verification system (assuming government can effectively design one with Democrats refusing to agree to data-sharing among relevant agencies), and an end to chain migration at some point in the future, i.e. when the big backlog on extended family members waiting for green cards is cleared up.

In the face of what became the Reagan compromise on immigration in the eighties, a compromise which produced nothing at all as regards managing immigration or the border, why some insist on trying to put a positive spin on this boggles the mind. All I can guess is that they've given up on any chance for serious change and are all too happy to go along for a ride that looks more like a death spiral for Republicans to
me.

Republicans were given a wake up call in 2006; they've opted to hit snooze. Were this truly a fringe issue, I'd likely accept any alleged wisdom in the move. But I don't believe it is a fringe issue. The majority of Americans appreciate a respect for law and order and want our borders controlled. The winning strategy debated too much too long ago, was, border security first and then a potential accommodation for existent illegals. That would ensure getting action from Washington on this issue for a change.

Republicans appear to have rejected that wisdom, opting for an ineffective compromise, instead. Fine. Let the Republicans tout their ineffectiveness in some next election. I'll be looking for a slate of third party candidates willing to do
what it takes to get a handle on the genuine problems facing America. Clearly
that isn't something the current Republican Party is willing to do.

Despite their '06 rejection, they're content to give us more of the same. Unfortunately, that isn't even close to what America needs. Is this
what McCain touted in the recent debate? No wonder his candidacy has been DOA.


Immigration reform doesn't just mean 12 million new votes for the Demos, it probably means 12 points leaving, or at least not caring anymore for, the GOP.

By showing some Conservative/Republican backbone starting now, even with another loss in 2008, the GOP could be well on its way to rebuilding trust with the people which will translate into victory down the road.

Just maybe, by immediately renting a pair and showing some backbone, the GOP could win in 2008. If it doesn't start with immigration we can plan on Alec Baldwin threatening to move back to America in 2008 and a Democrat in the White House.

May 19, 1910

President Warren Harding signs a restrictive immigration quota act which limits yearly immigration to a maximum of 3 percent of any nationality’s numbers in 1910.

A 1924 act reduced the limit to 2 percent of the number in 1890.
What is the 2007 percentage, 103 percent?

Here is the rope you asked for America

I have stated many times that Democrat/Progressives want open borders. That they do not care about US sovereignty and could care less about inter-racial struggles brought on by open immigration and the now proposed amnesty bill in the Senate is not a well kept secret.

Here is a great synopsis of the first step in their plan.

Cui Bono? [Mark Krikorian]
When Limbaugh calls the Kyl-Bush-Kennedy amnesty the "The Comprehensive
Destroy-the-Republican-Party Act," he's repeating what Democrats have been
saying for some time:

To get a citizenship bill through Congress, President
Bush and the Democrats probably need to convert a large bloc of anti-immigration Republican members, perhaps 40 in the House and 20 in the Senate. "Somehow,"
said a Democrat lawmaker who is trying to build Republican support, "we have to
convince them that voting for comprehensive reform does not amount to
'enfranchising their defeat,' " a reference to the likelihood that two of every
three new Latino voters would cast Democratic ballots. "Our problem," he
admitted, "is that we are hoping that the legislation will build the Democratic
electorate." ("Border Politics," National Journal, Feb. 10, 2007)

"As the number of legal Hispanics increases, the number of Democratic votes increases as well. ... Taking immigration off the table as a red-meat issue for conservative Republicans would be very helpful in a presidential year." (Democratic "insiders", National Journal Insiders Poll, April 14, 2007)

Top Democratic leaders and activists see Hispanic migration as a long-term opportunity for the party. The arrival of additional immigrant workers is "bad for blue-collars," Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, told National Journal late last year. But immigrants can help elect Democratic majorities, and "if [a Democratic Congress] were to significantly strengthen unions, then you would offset the negative effect on the income of workers," he said. ("Immigration Economics," National Journal, May 12, 2007)
05/18 03:45 PM

I must admit that I am stunned that Republicans would vote for this, even given their history of misreading campaign issues, but I am also stunned that all Americans are not up in arms over this illegal, immoral and destructive action against our country.

The Lies About Rev. Jerry Falwell

I took a few days to digest the news. Actually, I ended up taking a few days to digest the hate.

There has been and will be written massive amounts of things about Rev. Fawell's life. Most of it is crap. There is no need to recap.

I knew Rev. Fawell briefly in the mid-eighties. I was working on campaigns through out the south eastern region of the US where Democrats had reigned supreme since before I had been born. Much like today's blue staters, the then still alive Rockefeller Republican Party looked down on southerners as ignorant, backward and not to be listened to as people. We conservatives who had worked our way up the Republican Party ranks thought differently.

My boss and others on the team took our candidates and message into the community, churches included, even funeral parlors which I learned had held considerable sway for Democrats for years. A meeting had been set up with Rev. Fawell. I was chosen to go. I still believe I was chosen because everybody on the team thought it quite a humorous picture envisioning me with a cigarette in one hand, a scotch in the other swapping dirty jokes with the Rev. I was none the less flattered.

I have never been treated with such respect.

Here I went, an Ohioan in Virginia to talk about the southern strategy. The Reverend, his staff and I were to meet for approximately 45 minutes. We met for three hours. There was a political axiom that when promised 100 volunteers, plan on ten showing up. I was promised a hundred and got 500, all of whom were ready to work and they worked over time for months growing to thousands.

I spoke with the Reverend periodically and he asked pertinent questions, offered more help and advice and soon started teaching me. He taught me about people. He taught me about rural America. For once, I actually listened to the teacher.

Against all of the then current perceptions, we, as Republicans, won the south for the first time since reconstruction. As a team, we hooted and hollered and finally sat back exhausted. Yes, I had a cigarette in one hand and a very stiff scotch in the other. As I remember it was a long night.

After the election I saw Reverend Falwell a few times and each time he was gracious in his congratulations of work well done and remembered to ask about friends, family and goals I didn't remember mentioning. He not once took an ounce of credit for the elections he won for our team. He once did ask me if I had found the courage to quit smoking and drinking.

To you Reverend Falwell, I say thank you for entering my life and though you may not fully approve, last night in the quiet I raised a glass to you as I had the final smoke of the evening.

This poor sinner misses you.

The Real Goal of "Immigration Reform"?

Charles Truxillo suggests the “Republica del Norte,” the Republic of the North, is “an inevitability.”
He envisions it encompassing all of California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and southern Colorado, plus the northern tier of Mexican states: Baja California, Sonora, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nuevo León and Tamaulipas.

Al Gore is the most important man on the planet

The Last Temptation of Al Gore
Then, suddenly, Gore was laying American democracy itself on the couch,
asking why the U.S. has been unable to take action on global warming, why it has
made so many other disastrous choices—rushing into war in Iraq, spying on
Americans without search warrants, holding prisoners at Guantánamo Bay without due process.

As Time implies in the title, Al is as important, nee more important, than Jesus Christ, temptation being what it is today.

Me? The world is in flux with so many enormous issues and important decisions that have to be made immediately. We need decisive politicians to represent the Republic's good. When I think of Gore's impact on the planet and its sad inhabitants, I read, I listen and think. It's time to actupNOW and it tells me that Al is just so.........

Rice Krispies with bananas sound good and then some yard work before my real work.

Regularizing Illegal Aliens? Huh?

Republicans, still searching for the fastest way to continually shrink their base, are part of a Ted Kennedy plan to legalize illegals. That is to say retroactively make a crime not a crime. Think what this could do for the illegal drug trade.
Along with a border crackdown, Bush himself has advocated regularizing a large part of the illegal immigrants living in the United States. Anti-immigration politicians accused him of supporting amnesty for all illegal immigrants.

I fully understand the Democrats willing to fore go national security and sovereignty, they need to increase their voter base, especially since the dead aren't voting like they used to, but Republicans voting for this crap?

I've had enough of compassionate conservatism. Vote the law, enforce the law, including guarding the borders, enforcing immigration laws and acting like Republicans. Not losers Liberals.

I guess "regularizing" illegals is the new way of softening the illegality of legalizing illegals. No matter, it still won't help republicans that vote Liberal.

UPDATE: I've been advised that the last sentence should read;

"No matter, it still won't help republicans that vote illiberal."

Classic. Illogically so, but is it legal to illegalize the illegal? What? Huh?

Jenna Jameson Loves Hillary, Feels Better Porn Under Democrats

Jenna wants a better society and believes Hillary Clinton is just the woman to do such a thing.

PR.com: "Do you find that the climate of the adult industry changes when
there is a Republican administration versus Democratic?"

Jenna Jameson: "Absolutely. The Clinton administration was the best years for the adult industry and I wish that Clinton would run again. I would love to have him back in office. I would love to have Al Gore in office. When Republicans are in office, the problem is, a lot of times they try to put their crosshairs on the adult industry, to make a point. It's sad, when there are so many different things that are going on in the world: war, and people are dying of genocide...I look forward to another Democrat being in office. It just makes the climate so much better for us, and I know that once all our troops come home, things are going to be better and I think that getting Bush out of office is the most important thing right now."

I do not doubt for a minute that Ms Jameson wants Bill back in office, you know, to stop the genocide.

Another campaign booster is that Sharon Stone thinks Hillary is too sexy.

Infuriating Illegal Aliens

Fat Teddy Kennedy won't allow "earth saving" wind power generators near him, let alone common riff-raff Americans, but he wants to make all illegal aliens legal, plus their relatives. Maybe Teddy needs some new maids, what with the wife off doing things all day long and sometimes Teddy has to come home to a dark and lonely house.

Just like dear old Dad, Teddy believes for a mere exchange of dollars all one's illegal behavior can be wiped off one's record be it for running booze, prostitutes, guns, schmoozing with fascist dictators or a continual flaunting of US law, say, such as sneaking in the country and lying about it every day. One fee, one "Z" and everything is copacetic.


Oh, and some republicans seem to agree with a lot of Democrats and the White House. They don't want a debate because the majority in this Republic don't agree.

Teddy defies all political logic because he would be re-elected even if he was caught in bed with a little boy. A dead little boy. Massachusetts misses they royalty so they keep King Teddy around, but moderate Democrats and real Republicans have to go through the electoral process.

Choose wisely ladies and gentleman.

Nancy Pelosi Throws a Hissy Fit

The San Francisco Treat is po'd. She has been out thought, out maneuvered and is now out of patience.
After losing a string of embarrassing votes on the House floor because of
procedural maneuvering, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has decided to
change the current House Rules to completely shut down the floor to the
minority.

The Democratic Leadership is threatening to change the
current House Rules regarding the Republican right to the Motion to Recommit
or the test of germaneness on the motion to recommit. This would be the
first change to the germaneness rule since 1822.

In protest, the House Republicans are going to call procedural motions
every half hour.

It must be very frustrating for Mizzzzzz Pelosi, she thought she was the Queen, but a mere President, the House leadership and the Constitution all stand in the way of her "reality".

I think poor baby needs a time-out.

Immigrant Drivers License

A Polish immigrant went to the DMV to apply for a driver's license.

First, of course, he had to take an eye sight test.

The optician showed him a card with the letters:

'C Z W I X N O S T A C Z.'

"Can you read this?" the optician asked.

"Read it?" the Polish guy replied, "I know the guy."

Democrats, the Spineless, Terrorists and Terrorism's Victory

Maybe he can join Pelosi, Reid, Hagel, Schumer, et al for their next press conference.
Mohamad al-Janabi, a reputed al-Qaeda member in the nearby city of Salman
Pak, said in a telephone interview that he was unable to contact his comrades in
Mahmudiyah to determine whether they were responsible for the attack. But he
added: "I can assure you that we will start pressuring Bush in a new way at the same time he is facing pressures from the Democrats and the American people. And there will be no problem to sacrifice 10 soldiers in order to abduct a single American soldier and get him on television screens begging for us to release him."

Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom

I just heard about this story and I am outraged on many levels. First, the pain and suffering that these two young students had forced on them makes me physically ill, especially as I think of my two children. Second, the acts perpetrated on these two are incomprehensible. Third, the depravity, lust and hate these four people showed before, during and after the crime is absolutely inhuman. Fourth, we have suffered through celebrities and their sensational problems with no end, but do not hear about this.. Fifth, the news media is cowardly, agenda setting and arrogant. Sixth, where are those racists Sharpton and Jackson now? Hypocritical bastards.

The Truth About Who Suffers

Compare the attention given the Duke case with that accorded a far more heinous
crime, one whose victims have thus far failed to arouse the sympathies or even
the notice of those who found so much enjoyment in their condemnation of the
lacrosse players. Chances are, unless you live in Tennessee, you will not
recognize the names Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom. Christian, 21, and
Newsome, 23, both of Knoxville, were driving through that city together on the
night of January 6 when they were kidnapped and murdered. Newsome’s burned body was found along some railroad tracks on January 7. Christian remained missing for two more days until her body, stuffed in a trash can, was found in a home
not far from where Newsome’s was found. Police and prosecutors allege both
victims were raped before being killed. Yes, both. Three men and a woman have
been charged with the crimes in a 46-count grand jury indictment
handed down in Knoxville on January 31.

Everyone deserves a fair trial and if these charges are true, I hope all four die an excruciating death and a worse time in Hell.

George Tenet VS Richard Perle Slugfest

How the CIA Failed America

George Tenet and, more important, our premier intelligence organization
managed to find weapons of mass destruction that did not exist while failing to
find links to terrorists that did -- all while missing completely the rise of
Islamist fundamentalism. We have made only a down payment on the price of that failure.


I've got heavy money on Perle.

Tenet has no fire in the gut. He's just in the ring for the pay out, but before the 15th he's gonna be bloody. Real bloody.

Why has Jo Ann Davidson missed so many votes in the 110th, especially the important ones concerning Iraq?

movement,” Sheehan told APN in a phone interview.



Sheehan's apparent platform will be impeaching President Bush, presumably after he leaves office, and getting Dennis Kucinich named the Jester of Justice of the newly formed Department of Peace and Justice for Everything Else that progressives want formed immediately.

Rumors abounded in world capitals that support will be "a mile wide and an inch deep", especially in peaceful countries such as Iran and Syria. The still dead Yasar Arafat is already organizing door-to-door voter registration drives and told reporters that the coffee klatches were going "Weredi, weredi well. Allah be praised."

In Sheehan's home state, which ever one that might be, workers are busy getting her on the ballot(s) while reporters are stabbing each other in the back to get in on this scoop based on rumors that Sheehan will marry Hugo Chavez or the corpse of Fidel Castro.

Sheehan spokesperson, Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf, warned potential opponents that "God will roast their stomachs in hell at the hands of Cindy."

In other related news, Michael Moore is in the preproduction phase of "Cindy: An anti-misogynous march on the patriarchy" which industry wags have dubbed "Chicko".

Moore Blasts Bush Over Film-Trip Probe

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Filmmaker Michael Moore has asked the Bush administration to call off an investigation of his trip to Cuba to get treatment for ailing Sept. 11 rescue workers for a segment in his upcoming health-care expose, "Sicko."



A multimillionaire limousine liberal and pathological liar hopes to embarrass the Bush Administration by making an illegal trip to a country that gives whole new meaning to the phrase Potemkin Village to get "world class" health care reserved for communist officials and multimillionaires is an upset sicko.
