GOP Debate Round-Up

I slept through the debate last night and as I hear, I didn’t miss all that much. Could someone please explain to me why Ron Paul-who has not won one primary-is still in the debates? Oh, and a vote for the Huckster is a vote for McCain. IMHO.

Let’s get down to the meat of the topic. I was over at Stop the ACLU, and they covered the debate for us. So did several others, and there are links to their sites. Here are some interesting ones:

Stop the ACLU: Focus Group Says Romney and Huckabee Score, Stop the ACLU: McCain Lies About Romney, Ace of Spades HQ: Debate Open ThreadUpdate: Romney Vs. McCain On Who Flinched Less In War’s Darkest Hour– Advantage, Surpisingly Enough, Seems To Be…Romney, Sublog: Hot Air: Hot Air » Blog Archive » McCain considered benchmarks in January 2007, Sublog: The GOP Front-Runner?, Macsmind: Thoughts on the Debate – Romney wins, McCain’s an ass, Captain’s Quarters: GOP Debate: Live Blog And Wrap-Up Show (Update: Romney Wins), Bill’s Bites: 2008.01.31 Politics and National Defense Roundup…, Blog-o-Fascists: McCain Lying On Tape, Webloggin: Update: Is McCain Anti-Business? Anderson Cooper: Moderator, Debater or Simply a Liberal Hack? and Stop the ACLU: McCain Wouldn’t Vote for His Own Immigration Bill.

I find this last one very disturbing, since just the other day he said he would sign the McCain-Kennedy amnesty bill. Oh my, that sure is some straight-talking for ya, eh? And they wonder why we do NOT trust them…

There are also several video versions so that you can decide for yourself. I choose not to waste my time, but that’s just me. Maybe I will later, but I’m just upset right now. We cannot a Juan McCain…

PS: I do not wish to give anyone the impression that I support Romney, because I do not. Now you can see my dilemna. I know enough him to make me sick. What a choice. Why is it that the largest state in the union gets stuck with the nuts? Oh well. I guess it’s to each their own. Just remember the most important thing. It is not your damn pocket. It is our men and women who are in harms way protecting your selfish butts from having your throat slit. Or have you forgotten already?

Today we are going to start the news with two posts from Iraq the Model (I recently found out there were two posts), Gregg Jackson’s articles about things we should know about Romney and some news from Stop the ACLU.

Omar is studying for his American degree (he is already well educated in Iraq), and he finally had a moment to write to us to let us know that both Mohammed and he are well. Oh my! I just went to get the permalink, and there is another post! (For those who are new to the term, ITM=Iraq the Model.)

Here is an excerpt from the second post:

One more important finding makes my suspicion stronger. Could it be a coincidence that the percentage that Libyan nationals make up of total foreign terrorists has spiked during 2007? According to recently captured documents that US military captured in Sinjar, a town west of Mosul, one fifth of foreign fighters who came to Iraq between in the year leading to August 2007 were Libyan nationals. Or could it be another coincidence that Libya covertly sponsored a satellite TV channel in Iraq that was going to launch in late 2006, the same time the Libyan “surge” started? This is a new and surprising figure that suggests that there’s an organized effort to recruit and send fighters from Libya to Iraq; an effort not easy to undertake in a repressive police state unless someone above the law is involved. [Continue reading.]

Gregg sends me e-mails often, and I lost one of those letters which I needed to make an arguement. So I asked him for a copy, and this is what he sent me: Family leaders call Romney ‘disaster’, and A Stern Warning to the “Conservative Elites” about Mitt Romney. These are powerful writings, and I would take heed to the advice.

Aha, but there is more. This one is from a different source. Massachusetts Healthcare Plan Costs Skyrocket, by Monisha Bansal. Ask yourself, “Do I want to become a slave?” That is just what happens when we give away our freedoms. The Trouble With Mitt Romney’s Pro-Life Conversion, by Deal W. Hudson. It is amazing how someone can support BOTH the adoption of frozen embryonic eggs AND the destruction of them for research. This one is surprising, “American Right To Life Rebukes Ann Coulter. Wow. They must be very strict, but who can blame them? The Truth must be made known to those who are too blind to see. Finally, Why I Don’t Trust Mitt Romney.

This last link answers many of the questions people may have about Mitt Romney. Full disclosure: that is, if you don’t trust him like I don’t.

This next article is about an amazing young man who started sending care packages to our Troops since the beginning of this war. His heart must be filled with gold, because his offerings to the Troops has blossumed! Please read the following:

Troops in the Spotlight – May 25th and 26th 2008
K-Mart Plaza Hyannis, MA

It is hard to believe that Troops in the Spotlight is just 4 months away!!! Plans are now under way but we can use your help. We are hoping that you can help get the word out – we are looking for businesses, schools, churches, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, community organization, and families to plan to do donation drives and/or fundraisers during the months of April and May; and then present their donations during Troops in the Spotlight. If you can help with this please let us know.

We are also looking for Airman, Army, Marines, Navy and Coast Guard personnel who would be willing to participate during Troops in the Spotlight. Last year we raised almost $20,000. in cash donations and over 80,000. worth of supplies were donated. This year the goal is to double those amounts!!!

We will have flyers, posters available within the next week or so and would be happy to send you some. We are also updating our drop off sites, and of course we are always looking for new drop off locations.

We are looking for representatives for each town that would help to get their towns involved. We will also be offering a raffle during this years event and are in need of raffle items.

We would love to hear any suggestions that you may have. We want to make this year’s event a huge sucess!!! So far, we have sent out over 2500 care packages to our troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, and continue to support several orphanages, schools and medical clinics in both countries. I made several visits to Bethesda Naval Hospital, and Brooks Army Medical Center. This year I hope to become more involved with our injured troops here at home, supporting not only our injured troops but also their families. Of course, I would like to send out another 1000 care packages by the end of the year!!! The goal for next year’s Christmas Care Packages is 200!!! This year we sent out 120.

Please mark your calendars now and plan to join us during Troops in the Spotlight. We really need a show of support during the event.

More information will be available next week on the web site www.capecod4thetroops.com.

Thank you again for all your support, Cape Cod Cares for the Troops has been so sucessful because of the support I have received from everyone.

PS Please feel free to forward this email to anyone who may be interested in helping to support our troops

Now for some news from Stop the ACLU. This first article is about who would be the best candidate on judges and standing up to the ACLU? Please feel free to pass these articles on to your friends.

Which Candidate Can We Trust on Appointing Constitutionalist Judges?

…For most people that think fighting the ACLU and judicial tyranny are high priorities, an important question is: who can we trust to appoint constitutionalist judges that don’t write laws from the bench?

Lets not forget that McCain led the gang of 14. Mark Levin reminds everyone:

McCain also led the Gang of 14, which prevented the Republican leadership in the Senate from mounting a rule change that would have ended the systematic use (actual and threatened) of the filibuster to prevent majority approval of judicial nominees.

This next one needs no explaination: “Gitmo Terrorist Lawyers Endorse Obama.” Imagine that.

Well, it’s already tomorrow, so I’m going to stop right here. See the next post for ACT! for America, American Congress for Truth, and many more. I’m almost caught up. Gosh, ya take one day to go to the doctor, and the e-mail overfloweth! lol. Have a great day everyone.

Today (since it is morning already) is going to be an open trackback day so I can continue catching up with everything. Have fun!

These are the posts I’ve linked to because, well, they’re just that good! lol Oh, I will be using Linkfest to find these posts.

Barack wiped the state of South Carolina with Hillary Clinton. He beat her with over 20 percentage points. He also beat her in almost every category. I LOVE IT! He may be wrong on many of the issues, but what an amazing Democrat. If we have to lose to a Democrat, I’d rather it be him.

Let’s face it. We have crap running for president. No, I will not vote for McCain just because the establishment believes he’s next in line. Have you ever heard of anything so ridiculous? We are not the Senate! LOL.

I will not vote for Mitt’s ‘hillarycare’, illegal alien policies, abortion forced into the ‘hillarycare’ on his way out of the door, and homosexual propensities. (Not him, his politics, so calm down.)

I would vote for Rudy. Why? Because I can trust what he says. I know he gets down in the streets and fights mean. I’M FROM NEW YORK. We all do. Iran, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Sudan, NK and China will all be afraid to have him as our president. That should tell you something right there.

He isn’t pro-life? No kidding. However he didn’t try to re-invent himself by lying to us about it, and he also promised to appoint constitutionally literate judges. That is the most we can do about the abortion issue right now, AND YOU KNOW IT. Sorry for that outburst, but I get tired of having to remind people that should these things.

PS. No, I have not lost my mind or my way. I’m just tired of RINO’s running the government we have fought too hard and too long for to watch another RINO give conservatives a bad name. We deserve better than that. I believe if we do lose, Sen. Obama will not try do to us what the Clinton’s did. You know, make us out to be evil, or have you forgotten? If we have to be ruled by Democrats, I’d much rather see it done by a true, good Democrat. Not some idiot RINO. They will not get the message if we keep giving them money, voting for them and they keep giving us crap…

Now for the Open Trackback. I suppose I am not doing it right. I am suppose to allow you to choose whether or not you would like share your material here. I’m also not suppose to use the ‘ping chooser’ at the same time I have an open trackback. I do not understand why, but if those are the rules of etiquite, then so it. Have at it, and have a nice weekend.

It’s a sad state of affairs

Anyone who knows me from My Newz ‘n Ideas, knows that I am a political junkie. It is sad, however, this situation I find myself in these days. As you may have noticed, I have not been writing about politics that often. There is a reason for this. I’m disgusted with the candidates we have. Plain and simple.

Duncan Hunter is out of the running because a bunch of sheeple listened to and believed the stupid people behind the microphones of talk radio (who have their own axes to grind or candidates they’ve been backing from the beginning) telling us that this person or that person is not electable. SHAME ON YOU FOR BELIEVING THEM.

We have now lost the only Conservative left standing. Who is going to build our fence now? Who is going to make Iran back down? Who is going to confront China? Who is going to throw all of the illegal aliens out of this country? If no one will, why do we even bother paying anyone to protect our borders? COME ON, SHEEPLE.

Well, there is one low-key conservative left. That would be Fred Thompson. You can say what you will about his performances. If you are looking for entertainment, turn on the tv and leave the politics to us grown ups.

Anyway, I didn’t start out with that rant. What is really bothering me is the talk show industry. Gee, I wish I would have had as much publicity when I decided to run for office. I’m seriously considering it again, just like my fried Chad T. Everson. He is running for office in Minnesota. That site is not his campaign headquarters! He is also the ideas-man behind Grizzly Groundswell. I have misplaced it temporarily. *oops*

The facts are, we don’t access to the press or talk radio programs. Know why? We did not play by ‘their’ rules. How do I know? I started running for a local office over 3 years ago. I was forced to drop out of the race. I could not gather enough ‘party support’ on the strength of my ideas. Apparently that didn’t even matter. Instead, it came down to ‘who’ I knew and ‘what’ I had for the party. I guess all of those years of volunteering (for free) to elect people to higher offices was nothing? You guys make me sick.

Well. That’s my rant. Sorry if it was boring, and I don’t even feel better…One more thought before I go. Remember when California had the recall to get rid of Gov. Grey Davis? Everyone wanted to vote for Tom McClintock, but we were told that he was UNELECTABLE. Funny thing, HE WAS A SENATOR! Hmm. I wonder how he got there if he was so unelectable? Well, now we have Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaarnold. The defecit is greater than when we recalled Davis! I VOTED FOR TOM MCCLINTOCK. I was not swayed by the big mouths. I voted for the correct person, the right candidate. I know, because now everyone is saying they wish they had, too. WELL, YOU HAD YOUR CHANCE. Don’t make the same mistake again. VOTE FOR FRED. Thank you.

This is the latest you can get it Sunday Nite Open Trackback. In order to participate, please go register at Linkfest. For those of you who really don’t want to do that, you may still trackback with your best article, news, cartoons, whatever. Just enjoy yourself. Oh yes, no porn is allowed on this site.

My head hurts

I woke up late, because I went to sleep around 8 am this morning. I woke up at 2 pm. I hate politics. Hillary apparently won in new hamphshire, and mccain won with the help of independents. Okay? It’s over there. Keep on moving. Nothing here to see. My head really hurts, so I think I’m going to lay down for a while and dream about Duncan Hunter…

Candidates views per Iran

As we all know, Iran is seeking to attain nuclear power. Some may argue that this power may be domestic only, while others suspect that it was desired for nefarious purposes. One of those purposes being nuclear weapons. Therefore the Israel Project asked each candidate for their position on this issue (Iran).

(Make sure you have enough room in your Windows Word Processor or you’ll get an error message, like I did. Grrr.)

For a partial list of statements by major Democratic candidates.

For a partial list of statements by major Republican candidates.

How do you we suppose Iran is interested in a nuclear weapon?

ElBaradei: Iran will have nuclear weapons in three to eight years.

The timeline for an Iranian nuclear weapon was three to eight years, Army Radio quoted IAEA chief Mohamed ElBaradei as saying in an interview with the French Le Monde Monday.

“I cannot judge their intentions, but I can assume that Iran is indeed interested in obtaining a nuclear bomb,” ElBaradei said. [Continue reading the Jerusalem Post article.]

How does he come to this conclusion?

Iran says has built new long-range missile.
Tue Nov 27, 2007

By Reza Derakhshi

TEHRAN (Reuters) – Iran said on Tuesday it had built a new missile with a range of 2,000 km (1,250 miles), a step analysts said could add more power to Tehran’s conventional arsenal when tensions over its atomic plans are rising.

Defence Minister Mostafa Mohammad Najjar did not say how the new weapon differed from the Shahab-3, a missile officials had previously said could hit targets 2,000 km away, far enough to reach Iran’s arch-foe Israel. [Continue reading the Chantix article.]

The Israel Project will be in Iowa and New Hampshire to keep these candidates informed about this issue.

To learn more about the Iranian threat, read the key facts about Iran.

To end this post for those of us who are not blind, I will use a quote from the president of The Israel Project: “The power of the purse should be used for peace– but time is running out as Iran is racing towards nuclear capacities that threaten the world,” said Jennifer Laszlo Mizrahi, founder and president of The Israel Project.

This is good news for Rep. Duncan Hunter. To have one of the most Conservative senators (in New Hamphsire, no less!) endorse you is a big deal. Vermont is the first state to actually vote as we know it. Many people believe that whoever wins or suprisingly comes close to winning will go on to become president of the United States. Below is a copy of that endorsement:

Dear New Hampshire Friends:

After spending several weeks listening to all of the candidates, I have decided to support Congressman Duncan Hunter for President. I do not take this decision lightly. There are a lot of fine men running for this office and I know that many of you may have already made your choice. Your vote in the “First in the Nation Primary” is a very precious and personal right. Your decision will likely determine who will be the next leader of the free world. What an awesome responsibility! I only ask that you give serious consideration to the points that I make in this letter of endorsement for Congressman Hunter before you vote.

The Republican Party, but more importantly our nation, needs strong conservative and inspirational leadership as we continue to face the threats to our liberty in the form of immorality, corruption, terrorism, a mountain of debt, border insecurity, loss of jobs and attempts to weaken our national defense. Here is why Duncan Hunter is that leader!

I am sure that you are aware that I fought the battle for the conservative cause in New Hampshire for over 20 years. It was not an easy battle. Conservatives pay a heavy price for standing up for their principles. I can speak from personal experience on that. The Republican Party has lost its majority in Congress because it slowly and steadily has walked away from the “core values” that have made it a great party for the past 150 years in America . Remember Ronald Reagan? Liberals and moderates worked hard to defeat him in the New Hampshire primary in 1980 but he prevailed in spite of them! He will be remembered as one of our greatest Presidents because he stood on principle, but also because we conservatives in New Hampshire gave him the victory that propelled him to the White House! When President Reagan came into the oval office in the morning, he knew exactly where he wanted to take the country. He did not need an inbox full of directions, consultants, polls or focus groups to tell him what his core values were. There will never be another Ronald Reagan but fellow Californian Duncan Hunter can pick up the Reagan torch and light the way for America to come back from the dangers we now face. Congressman Hunter is a moral man, an inspirational leader and a no nonsense conservative who will always put “principle above politics” in the image of the late great New Hampshire patriot Meldrim Thomson.

I had the enormous privilege to serve with Congressman Hunter for 18 years in Congress. He has been my personal friend for nearly 25 years. I can personally attest that he is a man of impeccable moral and family values, a great patriot and a leader. I have seen him fight even when others were prepared to give up. Congressman Hunter inspired me and many other young conservatives in the 1980s to continue the fight even when it was bleak. This has not been an easy campaign for Congressman Hunter. While he has been out on the campaign trail his son has been serving in Iraq and the Hunters lost their entire home in the recent fires in Southern California . He has been largely ignored by the pollsters and the media. I urge the people of New Hampshire to send a message to the pollsters and the Washington media elite. The people elect a President not the pollsters! You have the opportunity to do for the nation what you did when you elected President Reagan in 1980 by sending Duncan Hunter out of New Hampshire with a big win and on to the White House in January of 2009! Can you imagine listening to CNN and all of the talking heads trying to explain how they were wrong as Hunter claimed victory? Wouldn’t that be worth the price of admission? You can make it happen with your vote in January! Do not be intimidated by these spinmasters. You control the destiny of America and not them!

The American people need to take control of this country. We are a republic, not a democracy. We elect leaders to stand up for us as they make decisions. Duncan Hunter has proven that he can lead. He has been tested. If given the chance as President, he will inspire people, young and old, to rally to our nation in this time of need. Congressman Duncan Hunter for 25 years has stood up for the rights of the unborn, to balance the budget, to cut the pork out of the spending bills, to strengthen our national defense by supporting our troops and providing them the weapons they need, to seal off our borders by building a fence along the US/Mexican border and to keep American jobs in America. He is a known entity. You do not have to guess about what he might do on these critical threats to our security. Imagine President Duncan Hunter leading our nation and using the “bully pulpit” to lead on these issues! I am proud to support this great American patriot for President. If you really want to see change, then I urge you to vote for him. He is what American needs now more than ever! Thank you!

Senator Bob Smith
Tuftonboro, N.H. and Sarasota, Florida.

As I remember, for full disclosure’s sake, Sen. Smith did leave the Republican Party for about a month or two while he was running for president in 2000. Many people did not forgive him for that. I was one of them. At least for a while.

Why did I not forgive him? If you want change, if you want to help, then you should do it from within. That used to be my philosophy. I do not know what has happened to my party, but it certainly is not the fiscally responsible, pro-life, pro- all the Amendments – the Constitution – the Declaration of Independence, and just plain decency along with the will to fight for what is believed to be correct. I do not see this anymore, and maybe Sen. Smith saw this before I did. Either way, all is forgiven. How could it not when I am sitting here wondering where can I go?

Today is Samantha Burns’ OTA Weekend and Open Trackback Linkfest Haven Oasis. Please have a nice weekend, and please have a wonderful and safe Merry ChristMass. Please keep our men and women who cannot be at home during this season because they are protecting our liberties close to your heart. Also remember their families, the empty chair for Daddy or Mommy, keep them in your prayers. Maybe if you know someone like that, you may even bake them some cookies or see if there is a need. Come on. ‘Tis the season to give. Thank you.

If you are using haloscan, please understand that I will have to leave my trackback in your comments section. For some reason, haloscan has not been available to me for 3 days now. It does not appear as though the problem will be solved soon, either. I am so p***ed off! (lol) Please leave your comment section open. Thank you.

Politics 101

If you have no plans, no policies, no ideas, make up a big lie and have everyone including the press repeat it. Sooner or later they will give in and believe you. Rosemary

If you intend to run for office, have strong convictions, a way to easily convey your message, always remain true to your convictions, and be satisfied with the outcome. Rosemary

One of these quotes was written about the Left, one of them was written about Conservatives. It is up to you to decide which is which. If it takes you more than an instant, maybe you should do some soul searching and a lot more reading about the founding of our great country!

I have a few articles I would like to share with you in this post. The first one has to with an angry Senate who does not have the time to fund our troops, yet it can vote to hold in contempt Karl Rove, retired political advisor to President Bush, and Josh Bolton, President Bush’s Chief of Staff. Hat tip to Fox News.

Lawmakers of both parties say Congress shouldn’t threaten to cite someone with contempt and not follow through.

“I vote for the contempt citations knowing that it’s highly likely to be a meaningless act,” Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa., said. “In this context we have no alternative.”

Specter and Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, joined 10 Democrats to report the citation to the full Senate. All seven no votes came from Republicans. [Continue reading.]

Apparently the Congress would like to peek at privileged discussions about the firing of 8 US Attorneys, rather than do the work they were hired to do. If you ask my opinion, the president did not fire enough of them! Hey, do you think I can have a peek of Hillary’s notes taken by one her aides? Hmm…lol.

Next I would like to discuss my friend who happens to be a talk show host, Gregg Jackson. He was interviewed by Jan Mickelson because Gregg used to live in Massachusetts under Gov. Romney’s Commonwealth Care. There are many things the public has yet to learn about this man, and all you have to do is listen to Jan’s taped interview. The link for this the one which includes Jan’s name.

It is amazing to me how Conservatives can allow themselves to be led around by their noses just to remain in power. If we have no Conservative, I’d rather not be in office. At least that way, we would stop being blamed for all of these RINO’s. (Republican in name only.) I’m certain the Left feels as strongly about their candidates as I do. After all, we just have a difference of policy opinions. We are not enemies. At least I hope not.

For a change of venue, let us look at the House of Representatives. I don’t know if they are representing you and me, but they certainly are representing al Qaida! I love the way Jay puts it: “222 morons would rather have blood on their hands for following a moronic moral code that is politically popular than to do what’s necessary to save lives when it comes down to it. No matter, this bill’s final fate ends with the President’s veto pen. I have a feeling we will all soon be missing President Bush on some issue. Hat tip: Stop the ACLU.

This next one is an e-mail, and they don’t have a link for it. Therefore I am going to present it in its entirety, because it is that important.

Black Activists Condemn Philadelphia City Council’s Boy Scout Eviction.

Washington, D.C. – Black activists from the Project 21 leadership network are condemning the Philadelphia City Council’s decision to evict the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) from its regional headquarters after the city failed to reach a compromise with the Boy Scouts on a gay rights policy.

“I live close to Philadelphia and am aware of the problems plaguing the city,” said Project 21 member Jimmie Hollis. “The fact that the City Council is taking exception to the Boy Scouts is an outrage. With so much to fix, why are they so willing to instead hobble an organization trying to help people?”

On June 1, the BSA’s Cradle of Liberty Council will be forced out of the Bruce Marks Council Service Center because it will not rescind its policy of prohibiting homosexual members. City Councilman Darrell L. Clarke told the New York Times, “you cannot be in a city-owned facility being subsidized by the taxpayers and not have language in your lease that talks about nondiscrimination.” This date became final last week when the City Council broke off negotiations with the BSA.

BSA spokesman Gregg Shields told the Times, “we believe that open homosexuality would be inconsistent with the values that we want to communicate with our leaders.” This policy was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2000, when the Court ruled the BSA is a private organization that can set its own membership rules under the protection of the First Amendment.

The Marks Center was built by the BSA, but the half-acre parcel of land on which it is located is owned by the city. A city council vote last May struck down the ordinance that granted the BSA a special $1 a year lease. BSA leaders say they cannot pay the estimated market-value lease of $200,000 a year while continuing to serve their 69,000 local members, provide in-school training and after-school mentoring programs and send 800 needy children summer camp.

While the Cradle of Liberty Council was thought to be willing to enact a policy statement previously agreed to by the BSA’s New York chapters saying that “prejudice, intolerance and unlawful discrimination in any form are unacceptable” without dropping its homosexual prohibition, Philadelphia officials preemptively said that, if it did so, the BSA would still be violating the city law.

“If the Boy Scouts were anti-God, championed homosexuality and were anti-establishment, I would venture to say they would find themselves welcome in Philadelphia. It’s the fact that they stick to and seek to promote a responsible and reasonable code of ethics that makes them a target of the anti-family left that tends to dominate urban governments such as Philadelphia’s these days,” said Project 21 chairman Mychal Massie.

Project 21, a nonprofit and nonpartisan organization sponsored by the National Center for Public Policy Research, has been a leading voice of the African-American community since 1992. For more information, contact David Almasi at (202) 543-4110 x11 or David Almasi, or visit Project 21’s website at Project 21.

This just really makes me want to cry. Maybe if we chopped off a few heads they would stop bothering us? Cowards!!!

I have saved one of the best for last. Have you heard about what Pope Benedict XVI had to say about the hoax of climate change? It is wonderful to finally be on the side of science, where we started, and to have all the fearmongers on the on the humanist, irrational side. If you would care to read a well reasoned article, the link is right here. Hat tip: Sonnabend.

Well, that’s enough for now. I must be going. I still have several still to read. lol. Have a wonderful evening. 😉

    I will most likely go off deep end while writing this post, because people are idiots and it’s beginning to really bug me. I try to be a nice person. I try not to call people names. I try not to insult other’s intelligence. So don’t insult mine, okay?!

    I am going to list a number of issues that the National Intelligence Estimate leaves unanswered. (Scroll down to “Key Judgments”):

    1. In 1991, the CIA was not aware that Saddam Hussein was only 6 months away from completing his first nuclear weapon. They did not know this until it was discovered by the Inspectors. Mistake number 1.

    2. The CIA told us that there were WMD in Iraq, specifically, George Tenet. (Here is a Foreign Missile Developments and the Ballistic Missile Threat Through 2015.)

    3. The CIA told us there were no WMD. They also declared these weapons could not have left the country. Oh? What are they, psychic? I know a good psychiatrist for them!

    4. Then they went back to not knowing whether or not they had WMD, but we just haven’t found them yet. Could you rely on this type of information? I certainly wouldn’t! Especially after there is already troops on the ground. Whether or not Saddam was playing a game to fool his neighbors, he lied. You do not lie to the USA. And for you yahoos, you do not lie to the UN. Game, set, match.

    5. In 2005, the NIE declared that Iran had reconstituted its nuclear program after talks with the EU-3 plus the USA had failed. Which is it? Did they stop in 2003 like Ghadafi, or did they not?

    6. The NIC consists of over 20 different intelligence agencies, some of which we will never know the names of, unlike the CIA. Yes, CIA, that is a slap in your face. How can you be clandestine when you are always showing up on the front page of the NY Times with all of your leaks?

    7. From all of those agencies, only about 30 people decided which intelligence to go forward with and assess. I believe these to be intelligence people.

    8. This information then goes into the hands of the State Department. Does anyone who reads this site not know how I feel about the State Dept? I want it defunded and gone. Can I make it any clearer?

    Then about 3-6 take all the intel from all the agencies and determine what they are going to say. That is how we end up with crap like this. Negroponte should have been fired along Tenet in 2001. George W., I do not understand you.

    9. Iran claims they are working on them. ElBeirdi (sp?) says they have the 3000 centrifuges. Russia says they have a program (which Russia is helping them build), so they ought to know!

    So why did publish a 2 1/2 page summary of 187 classified report (which some of the departments do not agree with their conclusions) at this time? Could it be political? Yes. They are supposed to display facts. They are not supposed to make any conclusions. That is the job of the president. I only wish many more people would realize their place in public office, such as the Congress. When will they pay our Soldiers?

    Update: And one more thing. The onus is NOT on us. It is on Iran. They, after all, have been murdering us for 28 years. When are we going to stand up to these cowards?

    Today’s open trackback will be dedicated to the way President Bush almost stood up to those reporters. It would be nice if he would stop using the same words over and over again. Oh well…

    Clinton shows fear

    It isn’t bad enough that the dead news stations know we don’t trust them, but then they have to go out of their way to prove why. Tonight was the GOP Debate held by C(linton) N(ews) N(etwork) and YouTube. I am not saying that anyone shined, because I don’t think anyone did. Is Hillary so afraid of us that she had to plant a video and have the homosexual ex-general actually come to the debate to argue with the candidates? Hmm.

    If you would like the real scoop on this, please go to Stop the ACLU and Webloggin. They both have documents and proof of the fact that this homo is on one of Hillary’s steering committees.

    Funny thing happened to us on the way to the debate tonight dear…

    Simplified Mitt

    Gregg Jackson has written another wonderful article about some of the facts about Mitt Romney, candidate for president of the United States, in a very thoughtful and well researched manner. I shall attempt to simplify each of the 8 points into a single sentence. It is still better if you would go read the article in whole, since he lived in Taxachusetts and I did not.

    Romney: Secrets The Media Are Hiding From You.

    1. Mitt Romney was elected governor of Massachusetts on a pro-homosexual, pro-gun control and a pro-abortion agenda.

    2. Is he that liberal? He resided over the Big Dig which killed several people, yet he left it under democrat control, and he imposed a mandatory health care disaster only Hillary could love.

    3. What about pro-life? His health care plan covers abortions, and his record strongly supports his political leanings to pro-abortionists.

    *4. Well, family values are better? He not only signed into law the homosexual marriage law, but he went as far as to fire anyone whose religious beliefs contradicted with his ‘family values’ in the clerks office.

    **5. Okay. Maybe he’s a fiscal conservative? Health care premiums have doubled, and Taxachusetts now pays 75% of their income in taxes.

    6. What about judges? He passed over 27 of 36 conservative and/or GOP judges to place Democrats, independents and two homosexuals on the bench.

    7. But can we trust him? In a Pew Center Poll, only 12% of the people thought of Mitt Romney as being honest. Just ask Teddy Kennedy why…

    8. I will allow myself one quote from the article: ‘If pragmatic means “what works,” then what is it about Mitt that works? When most Americans wouldn’t vote for Mitt in spite of all the money he’s thrown out and all the media glorification, doesn’t that seem to be the opposite of pragmatism? Contrary to conservative talk radio common wisdom, Mitt is the un-pragmatic choice. If Mitt does to America what he did to the “Birthplace of American Democracy,” America will be in a nose-dive by 2012.’

    And we have run the gammit. Do you want to take a chance with someone who reminds me so much of Bill Clinton that it’s eerie? If not, you can help Duncan Hunter to rise to the top. It isn’t too late. All he needs is enough face time as they gave this loser.

    I’ll be honest with you. I do not like him. NO. It is not because of his religion, so shut up about that. He cannot use that to hide behind every time someone tries to show you the facts about his record. My God. We USE TO debate about issues. Do we need to walk on eggshells now because he chose to be a Mormon? I think not! What does everyone expect? Is it now just a beauty contest in these dangerous times we live?

    UPDATE: See what happens when you try to trim important news articles? I got it wrong.

    *”4. Romney never “signed” any same sex marriage bill. There is no law. That is the point. He ordered justices of the peace and town clerks to perform same sex marriage ceremonies or be fired, and also authorized changing the certificates from husband and wife to “partner A” and ‘partner B.” He actually broke the law by doing this since the Massachusetts Supreme Court ruling in Goodridge was only an opinion that it was “unconstitutional to ban same sex marriage.” But since court decisions are just opinions and not LAW, Romney illegally ordered that same sex marriage ceremonies be performed.”

    **”5. I never said in my article that Mass. citizens pay 75% taxes. I only wrote that they will – in the future – as his socialist Health Care plan raises costs.”

    It’s good to have him help me when I make a mistake or a misquote. I do not want anyone to think I never make mistakes. I do. I rely on all of you to help me to correct them as soon as possible! That is why I have always suggested you go directly to the source. 😉

    Gregg has also offered a very good site of someone who has covered this in depth. His site is BizzyBlog, and he is our (well, mine anyway!) economic advisor. (By reading his blog. lol)

    Sunday Evening Bloglines 11.18.2007


    On PTSD, or more properly, on Coming Home.

    There’s quite a bit about myself I’m not going to tell you, now or ever. I will tell you some things you haven’t heard before, to be sure, but I won’t tell you why I know what I know. Just see if it seems right to you. [Continue reading.]

    Uncle Jimbo at Blackfive’s:

    Sheepdogs in civilian society (more coming home).

    They became sheepdogs. Once you march to the sound of gunfire you are a different person and that matters. When you get back most people will have absolutely no idea what you feel like, where you have been, or what you have done. That is not a lick on you, if anything that is a flaw in their life experience. Is there a greater honor than to have served your country in wartime? [Continue reading “Sheepdogs in civilian society (more coming home)“]

    Deebow at Blackfive’s:

    More support for the troops.

    Once again, blind stupidity in the face of overwhelming evidence that our soldiers continue to make progress toward victory.

      As a result, he (Secretary Gates) said he is faced with the undesirable task of preparing to cease operations at Army bases by mid-February, and lay off about 100,000 defense department employees and an equal number of civilian contractors. A month later, he said, similar moves would have to be made by the Marines.

    [Among other things…] Troops will not get paid. [Continue reading]

    More on Redacted.

    I called the Dallas Mavericks front office today to express my displeasure at Mark Cuban’s funding of Redacted. I started the conversation by saying, “I hope this isn’t the only phone call you’re going to receive like this, but I am a soldier and I never raped nor murdered anyone.” The woman on the other end of the line said, “Why would you blame Mark?” When I responded, “Because he funded the project,” I found myself talking to dead air.

    This one I could not pass up from The Spirit of Man.

    Isn’t that adorable? LOL.

    Now for some politics. Gregg Jackson is both a Christian and an active participant in today’s political scene. He also shares a radio program with Kevin on Sunday nights from 7-10 pm EST (there’s also a streamline) and is a friend of mine. He brings us Romniacs ignore evidence against their messiah. This is a very good article which voters should read. Just so that you are armed with the Truth, not so that you will hate anyone. You know me, and I do not promote hate. However, I do promote truth, whether or not it hurts. After all, which do you value more? Truth? Politics? With Romney, you have to wonder about both, IMHO, and if you truly do stand with him. Read Gregg’s article. He used to be a citizen of Taxachusetts.

    Update: I have just read an amazing collection of articles combined in one post by This ain’t Hell, but you can see it from here titled, “Where’s the war? (UPDATED).”

    Reading the usual newspapers and wire services this morning, I was surprised to find that there’s no mention of the war in either Iraq or Afghanistan. D’ya think we’re weary of the war and that’s why the Washington Post doesn’t even have it’s usual link to the US casualties on the front webpage? Nope, I don’t think that’s the reason at all. The war is beginning to go the way it should have gone four years ago. [Continue reading.]

    This is a very good and easy read. He talks about politics, because politics is affecting his life, he also talks about several articles he has read. Please go give him a visit. He is fighting for your right to be free. It’s the least you can do. Oh, and leave a comment of encouragement, but only if you are sincere. There’s enough bullcrap going around. I’m quite sure he doesn’t need anymore. Thank you.

    For those of you who are first time visitors to this site or others who simply just don’t know, I do get much of my information from Milbloggers, Iraqis, Afghanistanis, Persians, Venezuelans, etc. If I relied on the news that is put out these days, I’d be writing about the demonrats talking points. No thank you!

    This first story is from Michael Yon. He is correct that many people got upset with his on the ground reporting, because I was one of them. It wasn’t because I didn’t believe him, it was because I did. I was angry that no one else was paying attention.

    The Perfect Evil: Coming to Roost.

    Iraq is looking better month by month. But at the current rate, surely we shall fail in Afghanistan:

      Opium Funding Afghan Unrest

      KABUL The top U.S. general in Afghanistan said yesterday he estimated that Afghanistan’s rampant opium poppy cultivation was funding up to 40 percent of the Taliban-led insurgency.

      Gen. Dan McNeill, head of the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force, added he had been told by an international specialist that his figure was likely low and could reach up to 60 percent.

      The cultivation of opium 93 percent of whose world supply comes from Afghanistan, according to the United Nations is undermining everything the government and its international allies were trying to do, he said. Afghanistan’s opium production grew by 34 percent this year, according to a U.N. survey.

    [Continue reading.]

    We also have an article from Michael that was printed in the New York Post on Sunday.




    Statistics in reports about faraway places can blunt the reality of what those numbers mean. But when it is a bomb in a road you are about to drive on, it takes on a whole new cast, as I found yet again when I spent most of May in Anbar Province.

    I visited a former labor camp nicknamed “Coolie Village,” or what remained of it, after a truck bomb locals attributed to al Qaeda had flattened it. Not surprisingly, the anger and frustration in response to this mass murder helped the villagers overcome their fear of the thugs who had taken hold of their community. [Continue reading.]

    This is a link to a video of Michael on CBN. It is encouraging!

    Next is an article from a talented young writer, okay, maybe not that young, but he certainly is talented. He has written many 10 questions…mostly to the candidates. This time he has written about Christianity. Preciously, to the Evangalical community.

    Is This the End of Evangelicalism in America?

    by Gregg Jackson.

    A disturbing sign of the state of American evangelicalism has appeared in the seventh year of the 21 st century in a Townhall.com article dated October 18,2007 entitled, “Why Evangelicals Should Support Mitt Romney” by Wayne Grudem. One of America’s most popular evangelical theologians, Grudem is trying to persuade evangelicals to vote a Mormon for president. Wayne Grudem’s “Systematic Theology” is the gold standard of evangelical doctrine and a sacred fixture in evangelical seminaries, pastor libraries and Bible studies.

    In it, he defines Mormonism as “clearly a false church.” He shows why Mormonism has never been included in the Christian Church: It contradicts major Christian doctrine regarding the person of God, Christ and His work and salvation plan. A cornerstone of the Mormon Church, Grudem writes, is the classic heresy of Saint Paul’s day – angel worship. In his book, Grudem insists that an orthodox Christian must practice the theology he reads. So why would he step forward to become part of the Mitt Romney propaganda blitz trying to mislead evangelicals into doing what would shock most evangelicals in American history: elect a Mormon for president? [Continue reading.]

    While some may find this contraversial, mainly those outside of the Church, there are many good questions in this article if you read it with an open mind.

    On the political side of the news, we have Congressman Duncan Hunter calling for the defeat of the Law of the Sea treaty (LOST).

    Hunter Calls on Congress: Kill the Law of the Sea Treaty.
    at RealTimeNews.

    Explaining the dangers of the treaty, Hunter detailed, “It is imperative that our nation does not surrender decision making power for military navigation or resource extraction, especially in this age of terrorism with technology and weapons proliferation. And adding a new set of UN bureaucrats with license to tax and adjudicate disputes is the last thing this country needs.” [Continue reading.]

    I also have a press release from the Nat’l Center for Public Policy Research, but I’d like to give you two other sources. One is from this organization, and she is a blogger (yeah!): Amy Ridenour’s National Center Blog: Law of the Sea: A Sinkable Treaty. Also, there is another article against this treaty which offers much information: The UN Law of the Sea Treaty.

    And last but not least, don’t forget to vote in the blogger awards this week.

    If you care to look around, I will have some more military articles for you in a while. Just not during Church time. 😉

    Update: I just received this news of legislation introduced to the House by Rep. Keith Ellison (D).

    Anti-Photo ID Legislation Would Promote Election Fraud, Says Group.

    “Representative Ellison’s proposal is fundamentally flawed and potentially harmful to the integrity of our democratic process,” said Project 21 chairman Mychal Massie. “Why invite that which can only lead to unimaginable fraud and corruption?” [Continue reading.]

    You will probably believe this, but I want the same treatment for airplane tickets, opening bank accounts, social security cards, work, etc. Then see what they have to say!

    Here is some news from Radio Free Asia (RFA).

    China Finds Tibetan Nomad Guilty Over Lithang Protest.

    A court in the southwestern Chinese province of Sichuan has convicted of subversion a Tibetan nomad who called for the return of the Dalai Lama at a horseracing festival in August.

    Ronggyal Adrak was tried at the Ganzi Autonomous Prefecture People’s Court in Dartsedo (in Chinese, Kangding) on Monday, Oct. 29, on charges of seeking to “split” the country and subvert state power during a public meeting Aug. 1 in Lithang county, sources in Lithang told RFA’s Tibetan service.

    Ronggyal Adrak told the judge from the dock: “When I shouted ‘Long live the Dalai Lama’ and called for the release of Tibetan political prisoners, I was detained and then formally arrested.” [Continue reading.]

    As you may know, I am supporting Rep. Duncan Hunter. Why? There are many reasons for my doing so, and here is one of them:


    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: November 2, 2007

    CONTACT: Gary Becks (619) 334-1655, Gary.

    San Diego, CA – – – Presidential candidate and current Ranking Member of the House Armed Services Committee, Congressman Duncan Hunter, today called on former Governor Mitt Romney to send a “clear statement” to the leadership of the company he founded, Bain Capital, to terminate a proposed business deal with a controversial Chinese corporation seeking to acquire U.S. defense contractor 3COM. Bain Capital is attempting to form a business arrangement with Huawei Corporation, a Chinese corporation founded by an officer of the Peoples Liberation Army of Communist China, which faces allegations of assisting Saddam Hussein in the targeting of U.S. aircraft and in helping the Taliban develop surveillance equipment.

    “I am extremely concerned that Governor Romney’s company would tout a highly suspect Chinese corporation as a strategic partner,” stated Hunter. “Forming a business partnership with a corporation known to have direct ties with terrorists and dictators while, at the same time, openly seeking to acquire a major U.S. corporation that performs vital cyber security work for the Department of Defense, can only be characterized as irresponsible.”

    A resolution has been introduced in Congress, H.Res. 730, which states; “The preponderance of publicly available evidence clearly suggests that as currently structured, the proposed transaction involving Huawei threatens the national security of the United States and should not be approved by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States .” A copy of this resolution is provided.

    Hunter stated in his letter to Governor Romney, “…while it is true that you no longer control Bain Capital, the contributions you have received from its principals as its founding member indicate that your influence within the company remains strong.

    “Further, while the Committee on Foreign Investment has yet to rule on the Huawei transaction, this corporation’s connection to Saddam Hussein, the Taliban and the Army of Communist China should clearly disqualify them from becoming, in the words of your former company, “a strategic partner” in acquiring a U.S. firm such as 3COM, which performs vital cyber-security work for the U.S. Department of Defense.

    “This letter is a request that you immediately issue a statement of policy that this transaction should be terminated on the grounds of national security. Please let me know what you intend to do.”

    A copy of Congressman Hunter’s letter, as well as two articles regarding Huawei acquisition efforts are provided. Media are encouraged to contact Gary Becks at (619) 334-1655 for additional information or to arrange an interview with Hunter.

    Will Romney answer the demand? Not if he believes Rep. Hunter has no chance of doing him harm. This is a sad situation, because there are many people who support Duncan. They are just being persuaded by the media and even radio talk show hosts who, after speaking to Duncan, really like him but are tied into ‘their’ candidate. That is why he cannot get his message out. If you would like to know more about Rep. Duncan Hunter, please visit his site or come here. Thank you, and have a nice day.

    I received this e-mail from a dear friend of mine, Gregg Jackson – author of Conservative Comebacks to Liberal Lies, and it is well worth sharing with my readers.

    This article by Ken Conner discusses the importance of us Christians not to sit out of this election because of the lack of respect we have been given. Remember, it was our lack of involvement that brought about the situation we find ourselves in today. Would you care to give the Communist Party 30-40 more years before you attempt to speak out again?

    Let me warn you, whatever we say after one term of them in power our speech may be considered a crime. They tried to slip into the emergency military funding HATE SPEECH. What will you do then? Hmm…

    Republican Debate Oct. 9, 2007

    There is going to be another debate which will be held at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center at the University of Michigan (Dearborn). It will hosted by the Michigan Republican Party. Congressman Duncan Hunter will be participating in this debate. As stated, it will be held on October 9, 2007.

    The TV coverage will not be for those of us without cable, but if you do have cable you may watch it on CNBC who will be broadcasting the two-hour debate beginning at 4:00PM. MSNBC will re-broadcast the event at 9:00PM the same evening. I do believe that is Eastern Standard Time, but you may want to check with your TV guide.

    Have a great time, and write about it. I wantt to know how it goes. Would someone please keep count of the number of questions Duncan Hunter is allowed to answer without being cut off? He is my nominee, and I am getting tired of everyone else getting all the face time. If only they could hear him, then the party would not need to be so annoyed.

    Duncan Hunter is the true conservative on this stage, and he has served his country, our country, not only in the Congress, but also as a Marine and a Ranger. Check him out! His son is also running for Congress: Hunter for Congress. At this moment he is unable to campaign however, because he is in Afghanistan on his third tour of duty! (You may still help his campaign with a donation.) Vote Hunter! (Both ways, both times, and often. lol)

    Update: Duncan Hunter was interviewed by The Philadelphia Jewish Voice. It is a good interview. You should read it if you would like make an informed choice. Thank you.

    Larry Craig is going to announce his resignation from the US Senate on Saturday, September 1, 2007, but he remains sturdy about his innocence. He will stay in the Senate until September 30, 2007. There will be a special election held in Idaho for his Republican seat. As it stands, the Republican governor will fill the seat with someone of his choosing. (I’m pretty sure.)

    After I listened to the taped ‘confession’ given by the senator, I was almost convinced he was telling the truth. Almost, however, is not a word that works well in the Republican Party when you screw up this badly. See ya!

    This is going to be an Open Trackback Weekend for all those lonely souls who have no place to go this Labor Day Weekend. I always thought, however, that LABOR day was a day when EVERYONE WORKED. Who knew? lol.

    I shall be here. Ho hum. Don’t worry, though. I like it wherever I am as long as I have my computer. 🙂

    Ah, as I was choosing the posts to backtrack to, I ran across MacBro’s Place. Apparently they do not like the kind of OTB’s where that’s all it is. I AGREE! HooYah! They are the most boring things I’ve come upon. So why is my post short? I plead NOT GUILTY! I have been posting my little fingers to the bone, and if you don’t believe me?

    There is fear in this African state where there has already been too much violence for any one people. The president, Ahmad Tejan Kabbah, is thinking about declaring a state of emeregence. So what is taking place?

    President Ahmad Tejan Kabbah of Sierra Leone, whose ruling Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP) faces the prospect of losing power in the second round of a presidential election, is threatening to impose a state of emergency, news agencies report.

    The BBC reported today that Kabbah warned, in a television address made yesterday, that he might declare an emergency after two days of clashes between rival parties.

    His warning came as the SLPP issued a statement complaining that supporters of the main opposition party, the All People’s Congress (APC), had “brutally assaulted” SLPP supporters.

    Kabbah was quoted as saying that “The government shall not hesitate for one moment to declare a state of public emergency if the current state of intimidation, molestation and violent acts is not stopped immediately.” [Continue reading.]

    Source: allAfrica.

    Here is more information from CNN (I know, but maybe they may say something that is correct. lol)

    Police declared a curfew in the eastern border region with Liberia on Monday, a center of the illegal diamond mining trade which fueled a 1991-2002 civil war, after dispersing more than a thousand demonstrators from rival political groups.

    The unrest spread to the suburbs of the capital Freetown late on Monday, where supporters of the ruling Sierra Leone People’s Party and the opposition All People’s Congress took to the streets with machetes, local radio said.

    U.N. sources said one person was believed to have been killed in the violence.

    “The people of this country have suffered long enough,” Kabbah said in an address broadcast late on Monday.

    “I’m deeply distressed by events at the weekend. … From henceforth the government shall not hesitate to declare a state of emergency,” he said.

    The polls in the West African country are the first since United Nations peacekeepers left two years ago following the civil war, a brutal conflict in which children were drugged and forced to fight and civilians were mutilated with machetes. [Continue reading.]

    All we can do is sit prayerfully and wait…

    Update: If you have any trouble with those links, ie. the site is no longer there, try this link for CNN, and this link for allAfrica. Thank you.

    Gregg has been thoughtful and gentle in his asking of these questions. What we would like to know is what the candidates truly believe, not what is politically correct. Many times what may seem correct can do much more damage to one’s soul than ever thought. Read the very simple first question:

    12 Questions For Pro-Same Sex Marriage Presidential Candidates
    GrassTopsUSA Guest Commentary
    By Gregg Jackson

    1. To those who say: “Banning homosexual marriage is a form of discrimination, similar to the banning of interracial marriages, which makes homosexuals into second class citizens.”

    Anti-miscegenation (interracial marriage) laws were struck down by the Supreme Court in 1967 (Loving v. Virginia) because they frustrated the core purpose of marriage in order to sustain a racist legal order. Since the decision didn’t change the fact that marriage was still between one man and one woman, how is banning “same sex marriage” discriminatory? [Continue reading.]

    Very simple, straightforward and no wiggle room. What do they believe? This is not a matter philosophy, for if it were there would not be so much ‘to do’ about it. Come on, candidates. Truth or dare. WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE AND WHY?

    John Kanaley has just come back from two tours in Iraq, and he is willing to continue serving his country. He is a remarkable man. While in Iraq, he earned the Bronze Star and an Iraqi Campaign Medal. I’d say that’s standing up not only for our district, but for our country.

    He went to public school in Long Beach, where he also grew up. Upon graduating from Long Beach State University, he joined the Military and has also bravely served our community in the Long Beach Police Department.

    Ladies, sorry. He is married to lovely lady, and he has three children. His stake in our community has deep roots. He is a Father, a husband, an Army Vet, and a police officer. He has always been serving us in one way or another.

    Let us reward him by giving him an opportunity to clean out Congress. Plus he will bring his experience with him. This is something most of those old foggies do not have.

    He has many endorsements. Some from people across the aisle. Here is a partial list:

      LB Police Officers Association, LA County Professional Police Officers Association, LB Business Journal, Gov. Pete Wilson, Congressman Dana Rohranbacher, Congressman Darrell Issa, Supervisor Mike Antonovich, Former Mayor Eunice Sato, Former Councilman Rudy Svorinich, Jr., Former Councilman Frank Colonna, Former Councilman Rob Webb, Community Leader Gwen Patrick and Community Leader Star Parker.

    John Kanaley serves his community as a police officer and served our country as an Army Lieutenant Colonel in Iraq. John’s commitment to our community is demonstrated and he will continue this service in Congress. John Kanaley has my wholehearted support.

    – Former Republican Congressman Steve Kuykendall

    I agree. He has my vote as well. Won’t you please help us? We only have four days left to campaign, and I’m sure he could use any help you could offer. PLEASE! I’m stuck with people all from the same party! Did I happen to mention he is a Republican? He’s handsome, too! Don’t hold it against him. LOL. Thank you.

    Confessions of a Recovering Democrat

    Have you ever read an article that you wished would go on longer? Many times I find myself wishing they were brief and to the point, but not this time. I want more evidence, more significant changes, actually reasons for the change. I want them so I could apply them when I speak to the communists amongst us!

    Mr. Burt Prelutsky has written this article over at TownHall.com. It is not long enough, yet he does cover some issues. Briefly.

    This article was brought to my attention by Stephen Frank, a great political mind over here on the Left Coast. He has his own site which you may subscribe to which is sometimes quite hilarious, sometimes quite serious. Either way, it is worthwhile reading. The name of the site is California Political News and Views. You may also get just the headlines by using this script: If you care to have it and you cannot get it from there, just email me or leave a comment. I’ll try to get the code to you.

    And for my next trick, I am going to have another open trackback! You guys are just so wonderful. I’ve decided that since I cannot decide who to add to the post after I’ve already finished setting everything up, I will not discriminate against anyone. If you leave a trackback, I will add you. However, I’ve noticed some of the sites do not send me a trackback. Hmm…I wonder what to do about those people? I will leave that for another post. LOL.

    A good friend of mine has written a very good article in which he invites any of the pro-abortion candidates to answer. I really like it. I hope you will to.

    10 Questions for all the Pro Abortion Presidential Candidates
    GrassTopsUSA Guest Commentary
    By Gregg Jackson

    1. To those who want to keep abortion safe, legal, and rare:

      How does one “safely” dismember and discard a living human being from the mother’s womb? If you are not actually killing a living human being, then why should abortions be “rare” especially if, as many assert, abortions prevent “unwanted” pregnancies “abuse” and “future crime“?

    [Continue reading.]

    He is also the author of the book you see, “Conservative Comebacks to Liberal Lies.” It is a very insightful and inspirational book. It is very easy to read, and he has alphabetized the issues from A to Z. Go to the book’s site, and check it out. Maybe you may even like to buy one. This book can be bought at Amazon.com for $13.57. Just a thought… 🙂

    Oh my. Yesterday we learned that at around 11pm (the day before), there was a vote taken for an agriculture bill. Why is our government in the business of agriculture? That’s a whole different story, but I do not like it either. Our government isn’t supposed to be in ANY business!

    What happened was this, as close as I can tell. The democrats have the majority in the house, so they are the ones who call the final vote after congress is done debating and then the vote is taken. The vote was 215-213 when the final vote was called. However, the man sitting as speaker pro-tem thought the count was 214-214, in essence considered a tie and the bill would lose.

    That was all they needed, on both sides, to bring out the teeth. (Finally! I hate it when people who hate each other lie to our faces by saying, ‘my good colleague, etc.’) The speaker pro-tem re-opened the vote! This has never been done. It is as if the voting polls were closed, the votes were counted, and someone didn’t like the outcome so they opened the polls again. This is not done.

    Then the democrats wanted to just wash away the vote as if it never took place, and so they did. That is when the republicans got up and walked out. It has been poisonous, so they say, ever since. (You could have fooled me. I thought it was poisonous before.)

    What was the bill actually about? It was a provision to deny all illegal aliens from gaming the system. No protection or access to benefits and housing by employers and landlords. In other words, the illegals would not be allowed to take jobs that American people WILL do. Democrats did not want that to happen, so they could keep the poor, well, poor. Dependent.

    The coming days should be very interesting. There is a bill that needs to be passed right away, but the democrats do not want anything to do with giving the president, the cia, our troops or anyone else…the tools necessary to fight this war.

    So. Are you proud of yourselves for the government you gave us?

    Update: This post is offering an open trackback. Please make sure that you also include my in your post, even if it is only a link back to here. Thank you, and have a great weekend. 🙂

    Hunter is on the Campaign trail!

    I have so many e-mails from the campaign that I really don’t know where to begin. I shall try to help you stay informed so that you, not the dinosaur media, can make up your mind as to whom you will choose for president in the upcoming election.

    On August 5th and 19th, Drake University will be the home of two of the presidential forums. They will be covered by ABC and ABC5/WOI-TV live. The Republicans will have their debate on the 5th, and the Democrats will have theirs on the 19th. George Stephanopoulos with additional questioning from David Yepsen of The Des Moines Register will be moderating the debates. They will begin at 8am CT and air across the country as a special edition of This Week with George Stephanopoulos.

    On another note, “Congressman Duncan Hunter will be the special guest speaker at the San Diego County Republican Party monthly meeting on August 13, 2007.” The meeting is to be held at the Town and Country Hotel, San Diego, California, at 6:30PM local time. Thank you.

    I found that I could not use a few of the links, so I did not include those articles. I may love Duncan Hunter’s principled stand on the issues, but I cannot support links that go nowhere! My God, it reminds me of that stupid bridge…

    Here is the email I received to alert me to this Conference that is going to take place in Washington, DC, at 2pm today. You may read more about it at Press Conference and Divestment from Iran.

    If you cannot attend this press conference, you can at least read through some of this research. Check it against your own or different sources. I always try to find more information than just one article. It is better if you can back up what you say. Have a great day.

    Yesterday Congressman Duncan Hunter (CA-R) testified in front of the Senate of behalf of Border Patrol Agents Mr. Compean and Mr. Ramos. He has sent out a press release for you to be aware of all he is trying to do to have these gentlemen released from prison for which they are in due to bogus charges and the word of an illegal alien drug smuggler. [Emphasis mine.]

    For immediate release:
    July 17, 2007

    Hunter testifies for border patrol agents.
    California Congressman seeks full pardon for Ramos and Compean (Washington, D. C.)

    United States Congressman Duncan Hunter took his fight to the nation’s capitol today (July 17) to convince President Bush to pardon two border patrol agents he feels were unjustly imprisoned. Hunter appeared before the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Terrorism, Technology and Homeland Security.

    The California Congressman testified that he strongly supports a Presidential pardon of former agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean because, “there is absolutely no justification for such unfair and excessive prison sentences.”

    The incident dates back to February 2005, when the agents tried to stop a van driven by alleged drug smuggler Osvaldo Aldrete-Davila near the Mexico border. According to court documents, a scuffle ensued between agent Compean and suspect Aldrete-Davila. The suspect broke loose and fled on foot.

    Agent Ramos says he believes that he saw a gun, a fact contradicted by the suspect. Both agents reportedly fired at Aldrete-Davila, who fell, then continued his escape across the border. Later, Ramos and Compean filed their official report listing the 743-pounds of marijuana they found in the van, but failed to mention the gunfire.

    A Homeland Security agent apparently heard about the episode and traveled to Mexico. According to court documents, the Homeland Security agent offered Aldrete-Davila immunity, if he would testify against Ramos and Compean.

    In his testimony today, Hunter took offense to that arrangement. “The U.S. government sadly decided to side with the drug dealer and prosecute agents Compean and Ramos for simply fulfilling their duties as border patrolmen.

    The drug smuggler walked away from the incident with only a wound in his rear-end, and the opportunity to attempt another drug run.”

    Hunter continued, “The men and women of the border patrol are certainly not above the laws they are empowered to enforce, but, they must also know that when they apply the necessary and appropriate level of force, their government will not work aggressively to ensure they are punished while lawlessness is rewarded.”

    U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton, a Bush appointee, prosecuted the agents.

    In March, a jury found them guilty of assault with a dangerous weapon, discharge of a firearm during a violent crime, obstructing justice, lying about the incident, and willfully violating Aldrete-Davila’s Fourth Amendment right to be free from illegal seizure.

    Because there was gunfire, the mandatory-minimum prison sentence the agents will serve is 10 years. The U.S. Probation Office in El Paso, Texas, had recommended 20 years for each of the two agents.

    Hunter reemphasized his belief that, “there is absolutely no justification for such unfair and excessive prison sentences.”

    Hunter’s congressional district is in southern California near the border with Mexico. He told the members of the subcommittee, “I represent the border communities, and have for more than 26-years. I have worked with the fine men and women of the U.S. Border Patrol to ensure they receive the support and resources they need to address the constant intrusion of drug and human smugglers across our borders. It troubles me to think that questionable testimony by a drug smuggler, who was granted immunity, and free medical care for his cooperation, was put before the two border patrol agents who willingly accepted this inherently dangerous responsibility.”

    Hunter noted, “The very day they surrendered to federal custody, I recommended that agents Compean and Ramos be segregated and was assured they would be removed from the general population and close attention was being paid to their personal safety.

    The attack against agent Ramos indicates concerns for his personal safety and protection were ignored.” On February 6, 2007, Hunter wrote to the President requesting that an investigation be conducted into the attack against agent Ramos.

    The letter also requested that Bureau of Prisons Director Harley Lappin be discharged from his position should it be ascertained that the proper precautions were not taken.

    Hunter concluded his testimony by emphasizing his belief that, “Pardoning agents Compean and Ramos is the only option available to correct this terrible injustice and, just as importantly, restoring the confidence of the border patrol and the American people that their nation is serious about enforcing its immigration and smuggling laws.”

    Hunter has said when elected president, his first order of business will be to pardon the agents. Hunter has led the national campaign for border security and immigration reform. He has been joined by scores of his fellow members, and several activist groups.

    He was the only Republican Presidential Candidate to attend Tuesday’s hearing.

    Observers believe that the subcommittee members sought Hunter’s testimony because of his long fight for a more secure border and his legislative initiatives.

    Hunter drafted legislation that was signed by the President to construct over 800 miles of fence on the southern border. Only a few miles of fencing have been completed. Hunter has charged that the department of Homeland Security has the money and the mandate, but “the administration has a ‘case of the slows’ in getting the fence built.”

    He has pledged that, “he will see that the fence is up within six month after he takes office as President.

    Opinion Journal has written a tremendous article about the new strategy that went into full effect on June 15, 2007. Today is July 11, 2007, and the Democrats have been decrying that this is a lost war. Have they spoken with the soldiers? No. Have they spoken with the generals who are on the ground? No. Have they read this article? I strongly doubt it. Why do I believe as I do? Because I have seen this movie before, as Sen. John McCain has put it.

    This is the Baghdad Security Plan, and its mission is to secure the people of Baghdad. Even so, commanders are not ignoring the outlying areas of Iraq. U.S. forces have killed or captured many important al Qaeda leaders in Mosul recently, and destroyed safe havens throughout northern Iraq. Troops are conducting counterinsurgency operations in Bayji, north of Tikrit. And Iraqi forces have “stepped up” to secure some southern cities. The Eighth Iraqi Army Division has been fighting Shiite militias in Diwaniyah, an important city halfway between Basrah and Baghdad. As commanders stabilize central Iraq, they will undoubtedly conduct successive operations in outlying regions to follow up on their successes and make them lasting. [Read the whole article.]

    I am so very proud of our brave men and women who are willing willing to wear the uniform of the USA and fight for our freedoms. They know what they are doing. They know the different between right and wrong, good and evil. Trust me, they have seen things no one should ever see. They know…and they continue to do the jobs that Americans won’t do…oh, wait a minute…they ARE Americans! How about that, President Bush? Is this not the most honorable and toughest job? Hmm. Just as I thought, but getting beyond that…

    Thank you, Military. All of you. You are in a class of your own, and you deserve to be there. That doesn’t mean we will treat you differently, because we know that is not what you want. We just want you know how grateful we are to have men and women such as you. Thank God!

    This is outrageous. In one county of Mississippi, there was flagrant voters’ rights denied, manipulated, paid off notaries public to illegally mark certain ballots, they imported illegal voters to run for office, they manipulated the registration rolls and so many other crimes that I’m surprised we haven’t heard from the high heavens ne’er a word about this.

    Here is one quote from Judge Tom Lee, “These abuses have been racially motivated.” Where is Al Sharpton? Where is Jesse Jackson? Anyone? Hmm. This seems unual. Let us read further. Maybe they do show up.

    The man who is in charge of local politics is Ike Brown. He does not appear to be related to any of the bigwigs in the north. Oh, he is also a two time felon. Judge Lee had this to say about Mr. Lee, “…being the majority race in Noxubee County, [he believes that the politians] should hold all elected offices, to the exclusion…” of all other races. There are 12,500 people that live in this county and the other race makes up 30% of all the people, yet they only hold 2 out of 26 seats in that county.

    Judge Lee went on to condemn the political party of Mr. Brown for not taking more agressive steps to stop this abuse.

    No. I don’t see mention of the usual northern clamering people. Oh well. Maybe next time?

    This is a great article, because it was written at all. It is a travesty of justice and it mocks our constitutional rights. I have not mentioned his race or party on purpose. Mr. Brown is a black man who believes that ‘his’ county’s political seats should be held only by blacks, no whites need apply. Yes, he is a member of the Democrats. So are 9 out of 10 people in the press. Is it any wonder why you haven’t heard of this travesty?

    You want to start talking about a fairness doctrine? I say, “Let us start with the press”.

    As you can read, Scooter Libby lost his appeal in court. I don’t know how, but he did. With all of Libby’s backers, I being one of them, we are very disappointed by Bush…again.

    Clinton gave Marc Rich a pardon, and here is a man who ripped off not only the IRS, but you and me. This is a very bad man who never showed any remorse. Clinton also gave a pardon to the FLAN. This is a terrorist organization from the ’70s. They never even asked for a pardon. Hmm. Was Billy a part of them? Makes one wonder…

    So. Bush cannot find it in his heart to undo this unjust decision? Forget you, Bush! You are a bigger disappointment than I ever could have imagined.

    So what lesson have we learned? Never trust a person who demands total loyalty, yet at the drop of a hat will feed you to the sharks. Shame on you, Mr. Bush. A man who will throw his friends to the wolves while he wines and dines those who are planning to take down the country and a member of the KGB who is president now of the beginnings of the old Communist state’s birth while Bush is temporarily in charge of the USA is no bigger a person nor is he as much worthy of the same that he demands of others.

    You are on your own, Mr. Bush.

    Update: Okay, so you figured me out. I’m a hot head. It is possible that Pres. Bush wanted to keep the appealate process work itself out all the way to the top. Possibly. We will find out at the end of his term if he pardons Scooter Libby. He did get my dander up, though. Sorry about that. 🙂

    It would appear that even after September 11, 2001, some people still do not understand that this is an ideologic war most of all. After all, who is doing most of the bombing of innocents and most of the blaming? I AM TALKING ABOUT THIS CENTURY. Good God.

    Maybe I should let someone else speak for a moment.

    How many more terror plots will we unravel before one slips through the net and is carried out again domestically? N.Y. City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said after the announcement of the arrests on Face the Nation, “Al Qaida is a philosophy now..it’s a movement.” Well, that is a good first step away from denial. It has only taken six years to get that baby step. But it is not Al Qaeda only. I pray it will not take another 6 years for Americans to comprehend that the philosophical problem is political Islam. The President’s lack of clarity and leadership in naming the ideology of our enemy, the inconsistency of Islamism with American pluralism, and the primary responsibility of Muslims not only to counter terror but to defeat political Islam will continue to give American Islamists the cover they need to grow under his watch with the stamp of approval of the Bush administration. Until we are willing to unravel the ideology which facilitates and apologizes for terror, we are ‘stuck in the mud.’

    On June 2, 2007, right after the announcement of the JFK Plot arrests, U.S. Attorney, Roslynn Mauskopf read a statement stating,

      “the defendants are charged with conspiring to bomb one of the busiest airports in the United States, located in the one of the most densely populated areas in the northeast…had the plot been carried out, it could have resulted in unfathomable damage, deaths, and destruction.”

    This last time the Islamists were driven by a hate for the Kennedy name, but it derives from the same hate for America which is a common manifestation of global Islamism. In the daily practice of medicine, it would be malpractice to have a disease smolder with such a predictable recurrence of acutely possibly fatal exacerbations over a prolonged period of time while a physician only treated the symptoms and ignored the primary cause—political Islam. That is, except in the case of the terminal hospice patient. An unending series of plots across the globe against liberal democracies is our long war against an ideology. That ideology is not terror. It is political Islam.

    Would you believe him if he were a Christian? A Jew? How about a Hindu?

    Mr. President, as a devout Muslim, I can tell you that the only way the United States can make progress in this war is to have your administration give anti-Islamist Muslims acknowledgement for the centrality of their ideas in this war of ideologies. We can defeat political Islam only if we engage it and marginalize Islamists while positively engaging spiritual Islam. It is time for the administration to set the parameters defining the ideology we are fighting and be critical of organizations which facilitate it. The words of encouragement and admonition to Muslim organizations to lead the charge against radicalism are too vague. The reality is that the priorities, ideologies, and minority politics of the current agenda of the Islamic organizations the administration has courted and which attended last Wednesday’s press conference are far from being on the right page in this conflict.

    Yes, he is a Muslim who has been speaking out against these Islamists for years, but who has heard him? Who will give him the time of day? The press?

    The informants and so many others have stepped up in connection with other foiled plots despite the pressures against them from Islamists and the MSM. MSM often feed into conspiracy theories about informants, by legitimizing the victimization of Muslims for being “coerced” as informants. The Denver Post made just such a claim as recently as May 18, 2007. Their report claimed that, “Arab-Americans and Muslims are concerned about FBI efforts to recruit them as informants and other tactics designed to prevent terrorism.” This story was, to no one’s surprise, picked up and widely distributed by the Islamist organizations, e.g. CAIR.

    And you wonder why CAIR is prevelant with only 1700 members? America had better wake up to real and true threat that we are all facing. If you would like to read his entire article, you will find it here. You may also reach him at his site: American Islamic Forum for Democracy. If you keep up with his writings and read his site often, you may learn a lot more than what the establiment is telling you.

    Before I end this post, I just want England and Scotland to know that I have not forgotten them, and they are in my prayers. I am gathering ‘news’ to try to determine what is really happening over there. I thank God, my Lord in Christ, that everyone is okay…this time. America, WAKE UP!

    Hat tip: Thank you, Mr. Jasser.

    JP’s McCain 2008 PRO & CON Analysis

    JP’s thoughts on McCain in 2008, the pros and the cons. He has done some analysis, and I am going to post them here for him. If you like them, I suggest you link to his site. He is a very good writer!

    JP’s McCain 2008 PRO & CON Analysis


    1. Has always been fiscally responsible, voting against pork, excessive spending, etc. He is currently working with Sen. Coburn to highlight each individual earmark.

    2. Has consistently favored higher defense spending, favors a forward-leaning defense posture, and is one of the strongest defenders and communicators of our Long-War & War on Terror strategy in Afghanistan, Iraq and the rest of the Middle East. He agrees that advocating democracy and freedom can increase our peace and security over the long run. He understands the “neo-con” view of the world, of which I subscribe. This view holds that from 1945-2001, we supported dictators in the Middle East, which linked the US with those dictators, and caused the people to slowly turn against us because of the inherent corruption, poverty & joblessness that always results from dictatorships. This bad economic, political and social environment then fostered hatred & intolerance.

    3. He has generally been pro-life, but much like my view, is not completely intolerant to the view that the woman should have control of her own person when there are mitigating circumstances. However, I believe strongly that states and the people within them should have the power to set their own laws when it comes to this issue and NOT judges, and he has recently said that he would sign the SD bill.

    4. McCain has become much more of a party-supporter over the last 2 years. He campaigned vigorously for the President and many colleagues in 2004, and will do so again in 2006. I believe he has learned that bucking the party only gains him Dem friends, and he’ll never be President without 85% of the GOP votes. It seems as though he has mended fences with the Bush administration and is also gaining in key-politicos and donor personnel. This will take time, but must be a focus.


    1. McCain voted against the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts in both the budget and separate votes. Although he supported the tax cuts in 2005, his view on this critical item is suspect and I demand more from a GOP Presidential candidate, especially when these cuts have been proven to both grow tax revenues and the economy over time. McCain may have some “evolving” to do on this issue, which it looks like he is trying to do, and this is critical for him to gain GOP votes. He has to get out in front of any potential tax reform efforts and lead to have any credibility, but CPR is possible here.

    2. Freedom of speech issues are a problem as well. The campaign finance reform issue was a big one for McCain, and I am fully against limiting individual contributions. However, McCain Feingold was a boon for the GOP in that it did double the hard-dollar limits. My view is that both corporate and union money should be banned completely, and that individual limits should be doubled again, but this will never happen. This issue is a problem for McCain, and I don’t see him fixing GOP opinion much here.

    3. Judges is the 3rd problem for McCain. He brokered the “gang of 14” which did help to confirm some of the blocked appeals court nominees, and ensured Alito and Roberts passage, but the agreement appeared to many GOP faithful to be another cave to the left. He needs to be a forceful advocate for “judicial restraint” and come out aggressively against any liberal judicial rulings over the next 2 years.

    4. Because he has bucked GOP orthodoxy so many times over the past 5 years, there is little trust in McCain from the GOP grassroots. This can be overcome, but must be a long-term effort that is consistent and visible.

    GOP Competitors:

    Rudy Giuliani has a shot, but McCain is much more socially conservative. Head to head, John would win 2-1.

    George Allen is a popular, gregarious fellow, but I think he’s probably just a bit too much like President Bush in personality & communication style. Now matter how much I like GWB, I think the broader electorate will probably be looking for something a bit different.

    Sam Brownback and Mike Huckabee are good conservatives but would need $1 Billion apiece just to get the Name Recognition that McCain already has. Both will lose to most DEMs.

    Governor & former Olympics coordinator Mitt Romney is probably the most likely competitor down the stretch, although he is also a bit unknown. However, his strong showing at the SRLC in Tennessee opened a lot of eyes. He is socially conservative, balanced a huge budget deficit in Massachusetts without a tax hike, and has pretty good organization already set. He is running, and I think will be the conservative challenger to McCain.

    Condi Rice or JEB Bush would be fantastic Presidents, both, but I believe neither are running. Both might be running for VEEP, and both would make fantastic running mates.

    Pataki and the rest of the also-rans should drop their thoughts of running. They don’t have a shot at beating any one of the above names. Oh I forgot Bill Frist, sorry. That should give you some idea of what I think of his chancesssssszzzzzzzz

    GOP Nomination Summary:

    I think McCain has the best shot right now at winning the GOP nomination in 2008. Independents love him, and he gain win back most of the GOP, if he works consistently & patiently over the next 2.5 years to show that he has both learned that some of his prior positions were incorrect and that he is a more Conservative politician than the GOP grassroots think he is.

    DEM Competitors:
    Hillary is most likely the nominee, but Mark Warner wil be her credible challenger from the “center-left”, Russ Feingold will be the competitor from the liberal quarter, and a DEM Latino governor from the southwest (New Mexico) named Bill Richardson gives me the willies, but it seems as though he is too disorganized and childish (read: Bill Clinton) to have a credible shot at anything but VEEP. Any one of these candidates will get 48% guaranteed in the General, and Hillary or Warner could get 49%. 2008

    GENERAL Conclusion:

    McCain will win if he runs a credible campaign, and could win by more than GWB in 2004. If Romney is the nominee, the race is closer, he has to run a perfect campaign, and any other GOP candidate could likely lose.

    Editors Note: I hope not! 🙂

    Mr. President: I told you so

    I have been reading about Mr. Sean Treglia who used to work at Pew Charitable Trusts. You would think the press would be all over this. They are not. You would think the bloggers would be all over this. They are not. Oh, some have written a few sentences here and there, but nothing like Rathergate. Why or why not?

    This is the feedback I wrote to them:

    “Good afternoon. I have been reading articles that are stating that Mr. Sean Treglia “broke the spirit of the law” (his words) while giving a speech at USC. Is this true?

    This has to do with the Philadelphia-based branch and campaign finance reform. I would like to have your side of the issue before I go to print. If I do not hear from you, I will assume the NY Post and the Opinion Journal are correct in their statements. I would be very disappointed if this is the case.

    Do you understand how much damage you have done? (If this is true.)

    I understand he no longer works there. Was he fired because of this? I look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible. It goes to print Tuesday evening.

    Thank you for your time.

    I told them I am from the Americans for Truth and Justice, which is true. I am for truth, and I am for justice. I am also very American! So what is the big deal I am talking about?

    Mr. Sean Treglia gave a speech at USC, and he virtually confessed to fruad. It was all intended for the 535 people in power in Washington, DC. He also did much damage to you and me.

    How did he do that? Ryan Sager of the New York Post online has obtained a video tape of a conference held at USC’s Annenberg School for Communication in March of 2004 about how he got away with scamming the Congress and Senate into voting for Campaign Finance Reform, otherwise known as Incumbent Security Reform. See for yourself:

    Charged with promoting campaign-finance reform when he joined Pew in the mid-1990s, Treglia came up with a three-pronged strategy: 1) pursue an expansive agenda through incremental reforms, 2) pay for a handful of “experts” all over the country with foundation money and 3) create fake business, minority and religious groups to pound the table for reform.

    “The target audience for all this activity was 535 people in Washington,” Treglia says — 100 in the Senate, 435 in the House. “The idea was to create an impression that a mass movement was afoot — that everywhere they looked, in academic institutions, in the business community, in religious groups, in ethnic groups, everywhere, people were talking about reform.”

    Well, well. How about that? Do you realize the FEC is going after bloggers’ free speech? Go ahead and sit pretty in your cubicles, but when that day comes and you’ve said and did nothing, I don’t want to hear it.

    So what can we do? We can have Congress investigate this? Yeah right. They already look like fools to me. How about having the President tell the Justice Department to look at it? Yeah right. He’s the one who signed it into law in the first place. I called so many times trying to reason with him, and he signed it anyway. No. We can’t even go to the IRS, because Treglia was careful enough to disclose to them what he was doing.

    So what now? We go to the Federal Elections Board? They are the ones trying to shut you and me down. I’m thinking, alright?! The next election is coming. We can make this a big issue. A law has been given, and a law can been taken away!

    Campaign only for people who promise to fight illegal aliens and to repeal the campaign finance reform law. We have to come together. I don’t believe Republicans or Democrats like being duped. Let us show the press that if they do not do their jobs, we will.

    If the press had investigated this, PEW would have been laughed out of DC. The PEW has/had no credibility in Washington, according to Mr. Treglia. That is why the people who ran the ads did not include the fact that the PEW Trust fund had financed them.

    This is illegal. This violates the transparency issues. Of $140 million dollars, $123 million was received from only 8 fundraising organizations. Yes, Soros was one of them. They want to silence us, so we must not let that happen. Keep this story alive. I want him behind bars. I’m pretty sure there will be updates to this.

    My friend Jack of Clubs has been doing a very good job on keeping everyone informed about this. He has a list of everyone he knows who has written an article about this. Please visit his site to get more ideas. Thank you, and keep on blogging!

    I wrote a about the Military Families Relief Bill on the 14 of March. I have linked it for you again, so you don’t even have to go looking for it. Please find your state to see if you can participate in the program for our troops with your tax refund or return.

    I know a great blogger by the name of Jack of Clubs who has provided many blogs who have written articles on this topic. This topic is about the scam that many and I have been screaming about: Incumbent Protection Reform, otherwise know as Campaign Finance Reform.

    It is a scam, and it finally hit the New York Post, of all places. As I promised him, I will be writing my own article on this issue. I just had to put in down for a while due to high blood pressure, which I never had before! I don’t have it now, I was just exaggerating.

    Look forward to my taking this article to heart, and taking these people whom I will name to task. I will also give us a channel to place our rage. You will have some, if you care about reading any blogs. You will have some, if you care about your free speech.

    The Republican Convention

    I have been hearing many good and bad things about how the Convention is going. Does anyone know where I can get a transcript of all speakers, including the women who were there who lost their husbands on September 11, 2001? I would appreciate it.

    As for the coverage, I don’t remember the MSM paying so much attention to the protesters at the Kerry Campaign, but then again, their whole platform sounded like a protest! I do not like negative people or people who think I swallow the party line. I do have a brain, and I use it to research the truth underlying what people say. If they (Kerry supporters) think I can be swayed by telling me something he did 35 years ago and then spend 26 seconds on his entire political life, they are wrong to think that there isn’t something fishy there.

    Why would he not talk about his achievements as Lt. Governor for Gov. Dukakus? Why would he not talk about his achievements as a US Senator? Could it be that he was too far to the left? Could it be that if he did, we would run to the Republicans? Why didn’t he talk about it? Didn’t he have any achievements? It makes one with a brain wonder…!

    Enough about Kerry. I hope that President Bush is not dilusional about the ILLEGAL ALIEN problem [Article I: Section 8-(3rd of the powers given to Congress) To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization, …Article I: Section 8-(14th of the powers given to Congress) To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions; Article IV: Section 4-The United States shall guarantee to every State in the Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; …)] that is so pervasive in the USA at this very perilous time in our history. Tell me, how can we have Homeland Security when our land on which our homes are built is not secure?

    I am exhausted with excuses of how Americans won’t do these jobs. What do you think I did as a teen? How do you think I worked my way through college? It wasn’t by sucking on the government teat! (Except for the grants and student loan which was paid back! Total disclosure.) Our young people need minimum wage employment to learn the “art” of working. This is the only way to learn a work ethic. I am not saying everyone will learn it, but you CANNOT learn it from a book. I know adults who have tried to get employment, but were turned away because they were not Hispanic. THAT is racist. I was one of them.

    If the President does not address this issue without offering amnesty (no matter what you call it!), then I am in fear of another attack. Whoever comes up with a way to allow our Border Patrol to do their job, deport all ILLEGAL aliens (I love all people, so leave your racist sensibilities for some real racism,) and find the sleeper cells-ah, they will surely win many votes.

    This is not a time for politics. We are at war. All 19 of the hijackers were illegally in this country. It is about time we got serious. I do not want another another September 11, 2001. There will be noone left to vote for anyone if they or you are dead. This is too unbearable to realize, and that is why everyone desires to move on as if it never happened. Please, God, make them take this seriously.

    Incumbent Finance Reform

    My, my, my. So you don’t like the 527’s after all, Sen. Kerry, Sen. McCain, and President Bush? HA HA HA. I don’t like government trampling on my first amendment right to free “political” speech! Do you know what I am talking about? Amendment 1. Congress shall make NO law…! It came back to bite you in your butt, did it John Kerry? Ha ha ha. Tough. It doesn’t control 527’s, so people can say what they like John McCain. Ha ha ha. Tough. If my father, whom I love, cannot shut me up, what makes you think you can? What gives you that right? These are God given rights, not government given. I thought I already made that clear, as did our Founding Fathers! President Bush, shame on you!

    Micheal Moore comes out, Kerry and you said nothing. Moveon.org compare our President to Hitler, Kerry and you said nothing. Al Gore goes off the deep end, Kerry and you said nothing. Sen. Kennedy calls you a liar on the Senate floor, Kerry and you said nothing. Now that we have a real debate about the record of Kerry, all of a sudden…everyone calls “foul?” You can’t have it both ways, gents.

    Are you aware that 87% of all $$$ raised went to Democrats? When the Swift Boat Veterens for Truth raised a couple hundred thousand $$$, everyone has a cow? Why?

    So now you want to go to court to shut us up, after you failed in May? Don’t you remember? Been there, done that? I remember! You tried to stop it then. By the way…where were you, Mr. Kerry, if you feel so strongly about getting rid of this money? Shame on Congress and you, Mr. President!

    Why don’t you just get rid of ALL campaign finance laws and let the people speak! WE HAVE THAT GOD GIVEN RIGHT! I am so angry at you, Prez. You haven’t even veto’d ANYTHING! For the first time in history, a president has not veto’d one stinking thing! This is one you should have. You don’t sign it into law and then expect the Supremes to pull your butt out of the frying pan!

    This article may be all over the map, because I can see red, but not the computer! My thoughts are all over the place, because I have held this in for a long time. Please forgive me if my points of contention are all over the place. Thanks. God bless us, forgive us, and save us!

    Sen Kerry, did you know?

    When a presidential candidate attacks the President of the United States for allegedly coordinating with a group whom he claims is lying about himself, he should make sure that the person standing behind him is not holding a sign that lies about the President! Check out this picture! This is how far the Democrats have been lowered, because they have a platform they cannot share with you, the public. Tsk, tsk, tsk. For shame. Sen. Kerry, I call on you to condemn yourself.

    Look at Sen. Kerry’s Senate Record

    I am so exhausted by all the talk of Viet Nam. Is it important? To the people he maligned, yes. It is also important to history, since it changed the course of how we fight wars and the birth of political correctness. But is it important to the voters who know very little, if anything, of that war? No. That is why it is very important that we look deep into the bowels of Sen. Kerry’s Senate record. What has he done since his return from Viet Nam? What has he done for the men left behind? How did he help/hinder President Regean during the Cold War (WWIII?) These questions need to be answered. Is he for or against the USA’s military strength? Does he contribute any of HIS money to charities? This question, in particular, will lead us to understand why some look to government as their “god,” while others look to personal responsibility. Do I have the answers to these questions? No. I am trying to change the dialogue.

    I know that Sen. Kerry was elected in Nov. 1982. There are many Congressional Records to look through. I know he tried to put a freeze on Strategic Defense Initiative. Fortunately for us, the USSR did not believe as Sen. Kerry did! Even though it wasn’t built, they didn’t know that, and that one program helped in ways we may never know to the collapse of the Soviet Union. Do you believe that Sen. Kerry would have the hutzpah to stand in front of the Eastern Bloc of American citizens and tell them that they should still be under the control of Communism? HA!

    Sen. Kerry believes, or so he says, that life begins at conception. Good. So do I. Does he vote his beliefs? Let us see. He has voted for every pro-abortion bill, and against every pro-life bill. HMMMM?! He even voted to kill a bill that would protect a mother who CHOSE to KEEP her child, but the child was lost at the hand of another through an attack. The bill would make the attacker guilty of murder if the child died, and guilty of 2 assault charges if the child lived. He also voted against a bill that would protect a child when, during a late term abortion the baby was “accidentally” born, the living child could not be left alone to die. And he believes that life begins at conception???

    How does he vote on gun control? There hasn’t been a bill that crossed his desk that didn’t restrict our Second Amendment Right to Bear Arms for which he wasn’t in favor! My, my. The First Amendment is thrown around when it comes to free speech (except political speech for which both parties are guilty of trying to take our voices out of the process of electing people!) as if it were a blanket for them to hide! Except, of course, if you want to express any form of religion. Are you aware that Congress used to buy Bibles for the Nuns who were teaching our children? Yes. The printing press was not around, I don’t think, so there were very few books! Imagine if the only book available today was a Bible! Would we be cast as the Taliban? You bet! How insulting. Christians helped free the slaves, hid Jews during WWII, fought for women’s rights, and many more things that go unmentioned, because we don’t make a lot of noise. Our glory will come in the after life. Just thought I would correct some history, though.

    Has Sen. Kerry fought to insure that we would have the best intelligence? Well, after the first attack on the World Trade Center where 6 people died and thousand were injured, Sen. Kerry proposed a $6 billion CUT in the Intelligence department! Not even Sen. Kennedy could go for that!
    I am going to try to find his voting record on many other issues, as well as these. I want to be accurate and precise. In other words, credible. Dates, bill number, etc. I am not looking forward to this! If anyone out there has any helping hints, I sure would be a might grateful! Thanks. Have a wonderful day, watch the Football game between St. Louis and *Kansas City, and God Bless you all.

    Sports versus Politics

    It appears that most of the comments I have received are for sports (which I love,) but no one seems interested, so far, in my political writings. That is fine. I am not complaining, just making an observation. I will, however, continue to cover politics.

    Well, American Football season has started, and the guys are at their perspective training camps. New coaches, old coaches, rookies, vets, and let us not forget the ever diligent reporters! I am so excited. They will play 4 training games before the official season starts. I hope they allow people-who don’t bother paying rip off cable fees-to see the games on regular TV. I want Oakland Raiders, Buffalo Bills, Philadelphia Eagles (I know, fat chance!), or Green Bay Packers to win this year’s Super Bowl. Hey, I can dream, can’t I?!

    I will have the results for every game in a format that I haven’t actually figured out how to do, yet, but have no fear! When it comes to football, there is always a way! Keep tuning in!

    We Won’t be Fooled Again

    The Democrat Party held their convention this week in MA. Many delegates, supporters, and family members attended. The theme: “Positive” and “Unity”. Sen. Kerry will deliver a message that is supposed be of hope, strategy, and a reason why we should support him rather than President Bush. Well, if the media would have covered the convention, we would have seen Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Michael Moore, and a number of other “main stream” people. These people not only were not positive, they lied about our President. If this is what Sen. Kerry considers “main stream,” he is more out of touch with reality than we had originally believed.

    To go back to the 2000 election and drag up the lies about how President Bush actually became President is absolutely divisive, inaccurate, mean-spirited, and demeaning. It was the Supreme Court of Florida who wanted to change the rules of the game after the game was over. Can you imagine if the ref.’s, after the Super Bowl, decided that a down was going to be 8 or 12 yards instead of 10, so they could favor the team they like? There would be absolute chaos and heads would roll!

    That is what happened when the news called Florida for Gore one hour before the polls were closed. The panhandle didn’t bother voting, were they disenfranchised or do you care? All across the USA, the Florida effect had people closing up shop, people from the get out the vote effort went home, because we were told it was over. Did Gore get 1 million more votes in California? Yes, and that is why. When you tell people the new president 3 hours before the polls close, what do you expect? That is not the point, though.

    The reason we have an electoral college is so that states with only one representative and 2 senators (all states only have 2 senators) can have a say in how this great country is governed. If we elected our president based soley on number of votes, period, these small states would never see a candidate, people would spend more time on the coasts, and the fly over states would be just that-flown over! That is not what the founding fathers had in mind, and they have done pretty well up to now.

    Now that I have explained that stupid lie AGAIN, let it go…!!! Get over it! We are facing WWIV, and we must be united. United we stand, divided we fall…and we won’t get back up this time.

    I understand there are some people who honestly disagree that war is ever the answer, but I respectfully disagree. There is a group known as ANSAR. Please stay away from this group, since they are backed by communist groups and jihadist groups.

    Communism is an evil and torturous form of government that controls every movement of its enslaved people and determines for you what you will be, where you live, how much you earn, how much they will allow you to keep instead of your money being your money-because it belongs to the state, etc. You have no freedom under communism. Just ask some of our friends from Russia, Poland, Armenia, East Germany, etc., who managed to escape while Russia was still the USSR and they are now proud Americans.

    I have now heard the Senator’s acceptance speech for nomination for candidate. Without going into too many details, it was not positive. He accused the President of taking our men to war without a reason-even though Sen. Kerry voted yes to the authorization to go to war with Iraq! He used President Reagan’s and President Bush’s lines in his speech, such as a shining hill (Reagan,) hope is on the way (help is on the way-Bush)and tries to claim them for himself! Does he believe we didn’t watch the last Republican Convention? They also used the usual “attack them for what you are doing, but they are not. This way you take the heat off yourself, and put it on them.”

    This was done in an effort so no one will notice that 66% of Sen. Kerry’s ads are negative ads against President Bush, while only 33% of President Bush’s ads are negative! Come on, gents, it is an election year. If you can’t stand the heat-get out of the race.

    The Democrats have been attacking President Bush, with the exception of about 2 weeks after the acts of war on NYC, the Pentagon, and a field in Pennsylvania. Please, give me a break. If only the Republican Party had a backbone,

    I might not be so upset with them, but you Democrats seem to get away everything, and the press is complicit. Where is the outcry for the Sandy Berger investigation? Where is the outcry for the appellate court judges that have been nominated-some 3-4 years ago, but have not been allowed an up or down vote because the Republicans can’t get cloture (cloture=it is a Senate rule that says any controversial vote must have 60 votes to bring it to the floor of the Senate for a vote, but any 40 Senators can get together and stop the Senate from moving forward on any legislation it doesn’t like.

    This tool has been and is being abused, since no judge has ever needed 60 votes to be confirmed. The Constitution requires a simple majority. The Democrats have also used this tool to block the Energy Bill, Tort Reform, Social Security Reform, etc.?) Hey, why don’t you take away the Democrats perks? They did it to you when Sen. Jeffords jumped ship!

    You just don’t know how to fight back, and I am tired of hearing about a new tone. This is the tone, so deal with it! Well, please excuse me, but I had to get that off my chest.

    Back to Sen. Kerry’s message, you can’t do anything because you’re too stupid. You need us to do everything for you. Elect me, and I will make all 283,000,000 of you happy, because you are too stupid to know that you are not happy now! No thanks. We won’t be fooled again.

    Update: Kerry denies Knowledge

    When Sen. Kerry was asked today whether or not he knew of Mr. Berger’s criminal investigation, he claimed to have no knowledge concerning that issue. That is all that was asked and said.
