Truth, Justice, and the Un-American Way

Have you seen this story in the Hollywood Reporter? In the new movie “Superman Returns”, Superman does return alright; as a UN loving, dictator-appeasing, genocide-accepting, anti-American, we-are-all-people-of-the-world Euro-trash wuss. OK, that’s an exaggeration of the underlying point but the writers of the new Superman movie have decided to keep the Americanism out of the Superman character. He is no longer a patriotic hero but has instead, been written as an “international superhero”. He no longer fights for the “American way” because the writers felt it necessary to give credence to the people who view the United States as the new Evil Empire.

(
Hollywood Reporter) Michael Dougherty and Dan Harris (the screenplay writers) sought to downplay Superman's long-standing patriot act. With one brief line uttered by actor Frank Langella, the caped superhero's mission transformed from "truth, justice and the American way" to "truth, justice and all that stuff."

"The world has changed. The world is a different place," Harris says… We were always hesitant to include the term 'American way' because the meaning of that today is somewhat uncertain," Ohio native Dougherty explains. "I think when people say 'American way,' they're actually talking about what the 'American way' meant back in the '40s and '50s…
So, you play the movie in a foreign country, and you say, 'What does he stand for'? I think a lot of people's opinions of what the American way means outside of this country are different from what the line actually means (in Superman lore) because they are not the same anymore. And (using that line) would taint the meaning of what he is saying."

First of all, who gives a shit what people outside of the United States think the term “American way” means! And the meaning of the phrase is not “uncertain” to the average person. You don’t change the ideology of an icon who was meant to lift the spirits of our fellow countrymen and those who were in the armed services fighting against tyranny and oppression because some misguided moron hates our country now. It just so happens that we are again in foreign lands fighting against oppressing forces and sacrificing lives to free millions of people from the Taliban and one of the worst dictators in the history of the world; all in an effort to secure the country. And these writers don’t even have the decency to uphold the meaning of Superman because they don’t like the way we are detaining terrorists or the way the world views us…What is that about?

Since the war on terror is a war that many people in Hollywood feel the United States is the root cause of; they did not hesitate to take that phrase from the movie and skew it to match their own beliefs. They allowed their anti-war tendencies to manipulate one of the hero’s trademarks to make everyone who watches the movie feel comfortable (how sweet, huh?). And that’s not surprising because writers in Hollywood have more in common with terrorist-sympathizers and anti-American elements throughout the world than they do with real Americans.

Obama: Outing Secrets is the Media’s 'Job'

Barack Obama, the Democratic senator from Illinois, claimed on yesterday’s Hannity & Colmes, that it is the job of the New York Times to expose secret government programs. In an exclusive interview with Alan Colmes, Senator Obama responded to a question having to do with the President’s response to the New York Times article; An article in which they exposed the SWIFT financial tracking program. This was his advice to President Bush: "I would advise the president to be cautious about beating up on the press for doing their job. ... My attitude is, let the press do its job and that, you know, in fact a lot of the problems that have arisen in terms of leaks and so forth have to do with just the extraordinary unwillingness of the president and this administration to commit itself to any kind of oversight, from anybody. I mean, it's not just that they don't want the New York Times leaking stories about their activities. They also don't want to share it with Congress" -H&C Video-

Oh, so now it’s job of the mainstream media to make foreign policy decisions and provide viable intelligence to our enemies. I never knew that was the case but now I’m glad that I know how he views the seriousness of National Security. Honestly, that is probably one of the scariest statements I’ve heard from a Democrat in a long time. Let me clue you in on something Barack; it’s not the job of the New York Times or any other newspaper to expose secret programs, especially those that are completely legal and effective, to the public.


And they wonder why people view them as being weak on terror. Not only did Obama claim that newspapers have authority when it comes to American foreign policy but he tried to blame George Bush for causing the leaks in the first place. He’s basically saying that because the Commander-in-Chief wishes to keep a legal and effective secret-program a secret, he is forcing those people who wish not to keep the secret-program a secret, to expose it. That’s liberal logic for ya…

Furthermore, Barack dodged the opportunity to denounce John Murtha for his slandering of American Marines. He pretended as if he didn’t know anything about the story. When asked if John Murtha said it, (“it” means calling US Marines cold blooded killers), in the right way, this is how the Illinois senator reacted: "I don’t have the exact quotes in front of me. What I know is, here’s a guy who served our country… I would never second guess John Murtha. I think he’s somebody who knows in which he speaks." [And here I thought the Democrats were trying to paint Barack Obama as the big rising star of their Party. He looks like the typical Democrat to me…Blame Bush, praise treason, and support attacks on the military.]

A Side of Hypocrisy with that Treason?

It turns out that the outed top-secret banking program disclosed by the New York TImes and initiated by the Bush administration directly after 9/11, was the same program the Times called for on September 24, 2001. Wha-wha-whaaaaaaat?!? (NY Times, 2001) Organizing the hijacking of the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon took significant sums of money. The cost of these plots suggests that putting Osama bin Laden and other international terrorists out of business will require more than diplomatic coalitions and military action. Washington and its allies must also disable the financial networks used by terrorists.

The Bush administration is preparing new laws to help track terrorists through their money-laundering activity and is readying an executive order freezing the assets of known terrorists. Much more is needed, including stricter regulations, the recruitment of specialized investigators and greater cooperation with foreign banking authorities. There must also be closer coordination among America's law enforcement, national security and financial regulatory agencies.


Wait a minute…so the newspaper practically demanded the Bush Administration implement this type of policy, knowing how important it is to track the financial transactions of terrorists, but when it was politically convenient for them to do so, they said, “to hell with the country, we got some Bush-bashing to do.” -- So much for responsible journalism…

If they supported this program then why, all of a sudden, did they compromise its effectiveness? In the NY Times own report, they indicated how well the program worked and highlighted several cases in which it resulted in the capture of big time Al Qaeda members. Obviously, this can't be about the “public’s right to know” argument that was used by Bill Keller to justify the exposure.


There are not even any questions of this program's legality, let alone a need to know about it. And by the Time’s own reporting, both in 2001 and now, this was a necessary tool in our fight against terrorism. Given these simple facts and the history of the newspaper, it seems to me that this “must”-have effort by the Bush Administration to track financial transactions of Al Qaeda was leaked to undermine the war on terror. Hey, if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it must be an anti-war, left-wing newspaper that is engaging in political activism.

National Security vs. Right to Know

The debate between national security and the public’s right to know has been launched to the forefront of American angst in the last two years. With so many stories about NSA programs and CIA operations, it’s hard to not to wonder about the consequences of such actions and the disclosures of those actions. If viewed honestly, the situation we are currently faced with, i.e., the global jihadist movement to kill as many Westerners and Jews as possible while reestablishing the caliphate, is a situation that requires a delicate balance between our security and our rights as American citizens. It is with that honesty that I hope to approach this subject.

Terrorism is real! There is no turning back and there is no negotiation. We are entrenched in a new war against a new enemy that has global capabilities who is very difficult to see. The idea of placation in reference to the mentality of islmafascists is an idea that is severely misguided and extremely dangerous. And the tired quibbles about past discretions involving the geopolitical realities that sway the actions of every power, are useless in solving this conflict. In other words, understanding our enemies’ grievances, be they legitimate or not, is not the key to winning this war. That is not a realistic option; it’s not a way forward. Understanding Al Qaeda’s motivations will do absolutely nothing to stem their attacks; in fact I believe giving them credence only helps to embolden them. With that being said in hopes to avoid getting comments about how everything is America’s fault, we can move on to the issue at hand.

What rights do murdered people have? If you’re killed from a terrorist’s blast, your right to privacy is completely irrelevant. In the context of American life, one has to weigh the reality on the ground and the hopes of the dream. Are we able to accept limited-freedoms if that limitation is what keeps us alive? There are, of course, lines that can never be crossed and a police state is obviously unacceptable to most people. But outside of the police state, fear mongering argument, we can get to the root of the disagreements.

The government has an obligation to protect its citizens and the government has the obligation to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America. In that reality lay the problem. If the government, while protecting its citizens, hinders our constitutional freedoms, do we have a right to know about it? Before you answer, there is also a reverse argument to that. If the press, while exercising its freedom, endangers the freedom of others (to live and breathe) do we have the right to protect ourselves? This line of thinking can be seen in other issues as well. I have the freedom to smoke cigarettes but due to obvious health risks this particular freedom has on others, commonsense regulations are put forth to protect those who don’t smoke. So, where do the rights of one person end and the rights of another person begin?

The New York Times believes they have a right to expose top-secret programs to the American public. But I believe I have the right not to be put at risk by the likes of the NY Times. And I happen to believe my right to live and not be put in danger, outweighs the right of the Times to expose a program that deals in, for example, phone records. On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being “not at all important” and 10 being “extremely important”, phone records ranks about a 3 and my right NOT to be a victim of a suicide blast ranks about a 10.

So, is it OK to use technology to spy and track terrorists if there is the possibility of infringing on the rights of innocent people? The answer to that question is “yes”. It is fine to use such methods and technology. However, is it legal and morally justified to do so? These are general questions because different cases require different conclusions. One program’s legality may be in question while another effort is completely legal. But I think it’s important, with all of this political rancor, to keep in mind that we all have perspectives and we all have rights. Jumping to conclusions or blindly supporting one side or another is what’s really hurting this country.

Will Someone Please Shut Him Up

After slandering American forces, John Murtha has decided to take his bid for majority leader one step further. He is now going after his country and his fellow Americans by claiming we are worse than brutal dictators such as Kim Jong-Il and the Iranian regime. (Daily Star) American presence in Iraq is more dangerous to world peace than nuclear threats from North Korea or Iran, Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., said to an audience of more than 200 in North Miami Saturday afternoon…

According to Murtha, who happens to be a moron, the United States fighting Al Qaeda while trying to establish a democracy in the Middle East is more dangerous than Iran building nuclear weapons and North Korea about to test a long range ballistic missile? Either he truly hates his country or his rhetoric speaks to how beholden the Democrats are to the far-left.


He does know that the United States is responsible for more people being free than any other country on this planet, right? The only reason Taiwan hasn’t been invaded by China and put under communist dictatorship is because of the US. The only reason South Korea is free and currently prospering is because of the United States. Without the Untied States the entire European continent would be under Nazi or Communist Rule... But why let American sacrifice and its protection of millions of people get in the way of gaining support from the whacked left.

Come to think about it, I don't even understand his claim. A) World peace is an unrealistic notion that history and reality has proven to be impossible. Therefore, that premise automatically makes his argument unsound. B) If world peace was possible, which it’s not, the United States has, by far, been the catalyst for that possibility. Not to mention that the freedom to fight terrorism and depose brutal tyrants is, believe it or not, a testament to the notion of "world peace". Meaning the only way we would have no wars between nations is if the entire world was under one totalitarian rule.

Anyway, anti-war nuts are so simpleminded that they believe no war equals world peace. When in reality no war equals being content with tyranny, oppression, dictatorship and genocide. And so, in order to get their support, people like Murtha are willing to betray their country and the military. The far-left base of the Democratic Party is so out of touch that they don't care about what’s good for the country or what’s the right policy, they just want to hear high-ranking democrats say what Murtha is saying.

Triple Story Saturday

Patsy Ramsey Dead; Divine Justice?

ATLANTA (AP)Patsy Ramsey, whose 6-year-old daughter JonBenet's 1996 slaying has never been solved, died Saturday after a recurrence of ovarian cancer, her lawyer said. She was 49.

It was widely believed that JonBenet’s parents were in some way involved in the murder of their daughter. The case has yet to be solved and likely will never get the closure that it deserves. Maybe Patsy Ramsey was a recipient of “Divine” or “Poetic” Justice?



World Cup

I have played soccer since I was 5 years old and I currently play at the collegiate level. So I was disappointed when team USA was sent packing in the first round. However, I do lay some of the blame on the incompetent FIFA referees who gypped the United States on more than one occasion this year…and even in 2002. It’s been one bullshit call after another. From the Germany game in 2002, the two uncalled-for red cards vs. Italy, to the PK given to Ghana that decided our final game.

Anyway, my favorite international team is Argentina and my favorite player is Crespo. Obviously I would love for them to make it to the final game but I wouldn’t mind seeing other squads win the World Cup. Italy, Germany, merry ole England…they are the teams I’m rooting for. I hate Mexico, and it goes without saying that I hate France…



Republican Candidate Blames Satan

Republican congressional hopeful John Jacob of Utah is accusing the devil of trying to sabotage his campaign to beat incumbent Representative Chris Cannon by foiling his business deals. Since announcing his candidacy, Jacob has had numerous business deals tank, preventing him from contributing as much money to the campaign as he had planned.

Jacob tells The Salt Lake Tribune's editorial board that his misfortune can't be blamed on anything except Satan, saying, "I don't know who else it would be if it wasn't him. Now when that gets out in the paper, I'm going to be one of the screw-loose people."

Well, the crazy train has steam-rolled its way into Utah. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being bat-shit crazy (Pat Robertson), and 1 being mildly insane… this guy is about a 7.

Bush Gut-Checks Liberal Justices

Today, President Bush issued an Executive Order to limit eminent domain property seizures. WASHINGTON -- President Bush ordered today that the federal government cannot seize private property except for a public use such as a hospital or road. The move occurred on the one-year anniversary of a controversial Supreme Court decision that gave local governments’ broad power to bulldoze people's homes to make way for private development.

The majority opinion in the Supreme Court case involving New London, Conn., homeowners limited the homeowners' rights by saying local governments could take private property for purely economic development-related projects because the motive was to bring more jobs and tax revenue to the city.

If you recall, the Liberal Justices of the Supreme Court, with their socialist tendencies, disgraced the United States of America by expanding eminent domain to satisfy state governments’ ability to generate tax revenue. People have been forcibly removed from their homes to make way for shopping malls and other types of private development. This has been happening all across the country with virtually no press…except from Hannity & Colmes who have been on the forefront of pointing out this travesty.

Of course, we heard little to no outrage from Democrats over this Supreme Court ruling, which is a significant threat to the elemental foundations of the Constitution. They were too busy feigning outrage over necessary terror-fighting programs that pale in comparison to the fact that the government was given the power, by the Supreme Court, to seize your property for no good reason.


But as of now, President Bush has regained some of the respect that he, at one time, so fiercely garnered from me. He is showing a sign of his past self and this Executive Order does a lot to protect the rights of the American people. The President should be praised for this bold response to those who want to unjustly steal your property...

Down With the Dreadful Democrats

While the left is whining about Guantanamo Bay and the poor terrorists who are imprisoned there, captured US soldiers are having their hearts cut out and their genitalia ripped off and stuffed in their mouths. So my question is, where the fuck is John Murtha? Where the hell are these so called Human Rights groups who deride the United States because we put monsters like those who killed Kristian Menchaca and Thomas L. Tucker away at Gitmo? Where the hell are you! Not one little statement condemning the actions of those we are at war with.

Murtha, I’m waiting you blubbering, incoherent idiot. While you’re busy bashing the troops to look good for the anti-war nuts and saying we should redeploy from Iraq to Okinawa in order to fight the war on terror, you completely ignore the fact that we are at war with Islamofascists who want to kill us all; While they are chopping off the heads of Americans and mutilating the US forces they capture.

I’m getting tired of this and I’m getting tired of trying to play nice with leftist morons. Those of you who knew me from my first website on ModBlog are about to get some classic Opinionnation. The Opinionnation before I cared about trying not to offend people.

Listen up John Murtha, you piece of shit. You need to take your left-wing driven, anti-military rhetoric and shove it up your ass. I’m tired of people like you condemning United States Marines for no reason other than to make your tinfoil lefty-clan happy. You fuckin’ traitor! Always looking to score cheap-shot political points by calling US Marines cold blooded killers, eh. How many slanders is that from the left, Huh? “They [the troops] are Nazis, they’re the forces of Stalin, they operate Gulags, and they’re cold blooded killers.” Let me know if I forgot some…

The Democratic Party has devolved into in a pack of deranged hyenas. The Dems don’t care about anything other than regaining power. From outing CIA operations to sympathizing with terrorists; the left has become the party that supports our enemies. The party willing to throw their own country under the bus. The Party that from which nothing good can come…the party that is nothing. We saw them devolve…they started out by supporting the war, then to bashing Bush then to outing CIA operations, and when that didn’t work, they went after our forces in Iraq.

To Liberals: Stop Sympathizing With Terrorists

Two US soldiers went missing a few days ago and it was feared that they were in the hands of Al Qaeda in Iraq. An Iraqi witness and the terrorist group claimed they had captured the two soldiers but that report was not confirmed…until this morning. BAGHDAD, Iraq - The bodies of two U.S. soldiers reported captured last week have been recovered, and an Iraqi defense ministry official said Tuesday the men were "killed in a barbaric way." The U.S. military said the remains were believed to be those of Pfc. Kristian Menchaca, 23, of Houston, and Pfc. Thomas L. Tucker, 25, of Madras, Ore.

The director of the Iraqi defense ministry's operation room, Maj. Gen. Abdul-Aziz Mohammed, said the bodies showed signs of having been tortured. "With great regret, they were killed in a barbaric way," he said.


So let me get this straight. Al Qaeda does not treat captured US personnel according to the Geneva Convention? They don’t feed them three meals a day, provide them with Bibles, beds, housing, and exercise time? They don’t provide our American troops with the necessary services required for a comfortable living? Oh right, they torture and kill them and dump their bodies in the damn desert! You fuckin’ idiots

I guess the whole argument that if we treat captured terrorists nicely then they will, in turn, do the same for captured US soldiers is a bunch of crock. Maybe I should wait for the left to start blaming what looks to be brutal murders on the fact that we detain terrorists at Guantanamo Bay. I’m waiting for them to say, “If it weren't for Gitmo, these Al Qaeda operatives would have released them back to the US”. I’m waiting to hear “screw them” like when the Kos Clown said that after two American contractors were killed and their charred bodies were strung up on a bridge.


You tinfoil-hat wearing, terrorist sympathizing, anti-military, anti-American, liberal piece of shit pricks! Wake the Fuck up!

Opinionnation Definition: “Libocracy”

Libocracy- li*boc*ra*cy- li bokressee: The totalitarian beliefs of the leftist population whose main goal is to demolish the institutions of religion and censor any speech that is designated, by their perception, as threatening of their goal.

Their main weapon: activist courts such as the 9th circuit court of appeals.

Their main argument: the separation of church and state trumps freedom of expression, religion and speech especially public expressions of faith, e.g., banning high school team-prayers prior to games, under God out of the pledge of allegiance, and public displays of remembrance that incorporate religious symbols.

The Extremes: Groups such as the ACLU suing to have the name of the city of Las Cruces, NM changed because it means the crosses in Spanish or the removal of historic symbols such as the cross in the California state seal.

High School Shuts Up Their Valedictorian

Free speech is all well and good for groups like the ACLU…except, of course, if they don’t like what’s being said. Not only does the ACLU and like-minded people hate the first amendment but they actively support people who assist in the outright censorship of individuals who express opinions for which they disagree. For example, the high school valedictorian of Foothill High in Nevada was censored by her own school while she was giving a speech at their graduation ceremony. Brittany McComb’s microphone was cut in mid-speech for the simple fact that she wished to thank and acknowledge God and Jesus Christ. Her God-given and more importantly her protected right to free speech and expression was ripped away by the very same school that taught her the meaning of the Constitution.

(Review Journal) The decision to cut short McComb’s commencement speech Thursday at The Orleans drew jeers from the nearly 400 graduates and their families that went on for several minutes.

However, Clark County School District officials and an attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union said Friday that cutting McComb’s mic was the right call. Graduation ceremonies are school-sponsored events, a stance supported by federal court rulings, and as such may include religious references but not proselytizing, they said.

They said McComb’s speech amounted to proselytizing and that her commentary could have been perceived as school-sponsored.


Thanking God is proselytizing? That must be in the same ridiculous realm of banning high school football teams from saying a team prayer before the game. First of all, the separation of church and state was meant to stem the formation of an actual theocracy not to outlaw the first amendment. Secondly, as Stop the ACLU pointed out, the school could have easily used a disclaimer stating that the views of their valedictory speaker were not those of the school. Instead, they choose to cut this young girl off for no other reason but to prevent her from expressing her opinion; the same opinions that are specifically protected in the first amendment. However, I must point out that the school district has the 9th US circuit court of appeals on their side...but we know what the 9th circuit is; we all know it’s the most liberal court in the country.

It seems that a perceived promotion of religion, in the minds of some people including the school, outweighs the actual first amendment to the constitution of the United States of America. Oh, not to mention people like Jay Bennish, the high school teacher who was caught indoctrinating his students with leftist propaganda, and Ward Churchill have free reign to say what they wish. Leftist teachers indoctrinating young students, OK…thanking God in a speech, not OK, and worthy of censorship. Side Reference: The American Civil Liberties Union is weighing a ban on public dissent for its members. So much for that freedom they claim to be protecting -story-

Russert Points Out Murtha Hypocrisy

Representative John “our Marines are cold blooded killers” Murtha was spewing his cut and run argument on Meet the Press this morning. However, early in the interview Tim Russert pointed out the difference between John Murtha in 2004 and Murtha in 2006 in regards to his position on “immediate withdrawal”. -Video via ETL-

Murtha, 2004: A war initiated on faulty intelligence must not be followed by a premature withdrawal of our troops based on a political timetable. An untimely exit could rapidly devolve into a civil war, which would leave American foreign policy in disarray as countries question not only America’s judgment but also its perseverance.

Hmm, why the sudden change in rhetoric from the Pennsylvania Democrat? What’s the difference between then and now…? Could his calls for immediate withdrawal be based on a political timetable?

Pennsylvania Rep. John Murtha, one of the Democrats' leading anti-war voices, startled his party colleagues Friday by announcing he would seek a senior leadership position if the Democrats win control of the House in November… "If we prevail as I hope and know we will and return to the majority this next Congress, I have decided to run for the open seat of the majority leader," Murtha, a Pennsylvanian, said in a letter sent to House Democrats.

So, according to Murtha’s original position on pulling out of Iraq, he is basically accusing his new self of being willing to sacrifice American Foreign policy and undermining our country’s perseverance for a politically timed call for withdrawal. Thanks Johnny Boy, you saved me the trouble of having to point that out.

But what did the troop-basher have to say in the interview…it couldn’t possibly get any more ridiculous than that hypocritical position? Wait…this was Murtha's response to the idea that Iraq might become a stable Democracy in two years: I would hope that…but we’ve become the enemy…we all want the same thing, we want something to happen, we want a democratic government. But that’s not happening the way we're doing it…international diplomacy is the key and we have to restore confidence…the whole world looks at us like we're the bad guys.

Oh, he couldn’t help it could he? A) The world thinks we are the bad guys because they have no understanding of anything outside of the argument, “everything is America’s fault”. B) Any person who truly believes that international diplomacy is the key to a stable Iraq needs serious psychological treatment; for they are delusional. I think Murtha needs to be reminded that the “world community” was busy helping Saddam Hussein prior to the war and are now unwilling to help the Iraqi people in any real way. C) Iraq has a democratic government…I don’t know if he knows that. And Murtha’s argument that America has become the enemy of the Iraqi people must be why so many people on the political left love the man. Memo to Murtha and his tinfoil friends: The only reason Iraq is unstable is because of the terrorist-insurgent groups, not the United States.

Anyway, good luck with your bid for House Majority Leader. You sure have walked over a lot of dead bodies and stabbed a lot of Marines in the back to get it.

Oh, the Humanity!

The Pentagon has released over 100 documents of Iraqi prisoner “abuse” cases due to a freedom of information request filed by the ACLU. These documents reveal what so many people have feared over the last two years. The outrages and inhumane acts of the evil Republican Empire is brought to bare by the honorable and patriotic American Civil Liberties Union. I implore you, do not read any further if your have a weak stomach; for it is these types of atrocities that our brave men and women have been labeled “Nazis” and compared to the forces of Stalin.

WASHINGTON - U.S. special operations forces fed some Iraqi detainees only bread and water for up to 17 days, used unapproved interrogation practices such as sleep deprivation and loud music and stripped at least one prisoner, according to a Pentagon report on incidents dating to 2003 and 2004…The report concludes that the detainees' treatment was wrong but not illegal and reflected inadequate resources and lack of oversight and proper guidance rather than deliberate abuse.

Are you shocked? They were only fed bread and water…those evil Nazi bastards! How could they do that to those poor insurgents? And they played loud music…It’s like these prisoners were in hell on earth. [That’s sarcasm for my friends on the left]


The ACLU was fighting quite hard for the release of these documents in the hopes that they would contain human rights violations. They wanted these documents to have reports of prisoner abuse so they could use it as ammunition against the Administration and in particular the U.S. military. Unfortunately for them, and other anti-war groups, they found only cases of what some would consider slight mistreatment (what I consider perfectly fine).

If you recall, Senator Kennedy weighed in on the alleged prisoner abuse scandal that took place in Iraqi prisons. “We now learn that Saddam's torture chambers reopened under new management, U.S. management.” Ahh, don’t you love that ole, we support the troops but they're uncontrollable torturers line that liberals tend to use. We know you hate the troops Teddy; you don’t have to try to hide it.

This new story reminds me of the former Gitmo prisoner who
praised his American captors; When all of the fabricated hype of systematic torture came crashing down on those who wish to condemn the United States and its military. Prisoners here are in paradise," he says. "American people are very good. Really. They give us three meals. Fruit juice and everything!" -Abdul Hakim Bukhary. Admitted terrorist-fighter, former Gitmo Detainee-
Kennedy compares the military to the forces of Hussein; Durbin compared the US forces at Gitmo to the Nazis, John Murtha labels Marines in Haditha cold blooded killers, but a terrorist who was formally housed at Guantanamo Bay praised the American forces…go figure

Dems Make A Huge Mistake

149 House Democrats, including Nancy Pelosi, voted against completing the mission in Iraq and honoring the sacrifices of American forces in that country. House Resolution 861 says that since the removal of Saddam Hussein…"the terrorists have declared Iraq to be the central front in their war against all who oppose their ideology." It "honors the sacrifices" of U.S. and allied forces in Iraq and Afghanistan and "declares that it is not in the national security interest of the United States to set an arbitrary date for the withdrawal or redeployment" of U.S. troops from Iraq.

The resolution also "declares that the United States is committed to the completion of the mission to create a sovereign, free, secure and united Iraq," and it congratulates the new Iraqi prime minister, Nouri al-Maliki, and the Iraqi people for participating in the 2005 elections and forming the first democratic government under Iraq's new constitution.


Democrats voted against the Iraqi government, the mission, the troops and the importance of the war on terror…need I say more.

OK a little more. The Iraq timetable issue, which is being pushed by the Dems, is pure politics for the obvious purpose of rallying their far-left base for the midterm elections. It is likely that many of the 149 sellouts Democrats voted against this resolution simply to placate that base. Meaning, they sacrificed integrity, loyalty, patriotism, and the chance to honor American forces to make the tinfoil people at the Daily Kos and MoveON.org happy. And at the same time, they are deriding Republicans for forwarding the resolution, claiming it was a political stunt. Nice try.

And If they knew it was a “stunt” then they have to be the dumbest politicians on this planet because now their un-American stance is on record. It would mean they are so beholden to the crazy-left that they would risk alienating moderate and swing voters just to protest what they claimed was a stunt. No wonder they can’t win elections. Is it really that hard for Democrats to support the troops, the mission, and the war most of them wanted, pushed for, and voted for?

More Bad News For Democrats

Iraq's national security adviser boldly stated today that the Zarqawi strike and the subsequent “treasure” of intelligence found at the scene, is “the beginning of the end of Al Qaeda in Iraq”. BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - Iraq's national security adviser said Thursday a "huge treasure" of documents and computer records was seized after the raid on terror leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's hideout, giving the Iraqi government the upper hand in its fight against al-Qaida in Iraq.

"We believe that this is the beginning of the end of al-Qaida in Iraq," al-Rubaie said, adding that the documents showed al-Qaida is in "pretty bad shape," politically and in terms of training, weapons and media.

Since the Zarqawi killing, US and Iraqi forces have carried out more than 400 raids and have killed over 100 terrorist-insurgents. The raids, many of which were conducted by the Iraqis alone, also resulted in the capture of 759 insurgents. This is great news... except if you’re a Democrat. Especially one pushing for immediate withdraw [surrender] from Iraq.

Al Qaeda is being decimated in that country and their internal
documents along with their seemingly desperate war plans prove that. Unless, of course, you’re an anti-American newspaper with hopes of convincing your readers these documents are fake. This is how desperate the far-left is to prop up Al Qaeda and to attack the US. The Guardian website did report on the captured Intel but could not summon the journalistic integrity to report a positive story in favor of America.

(
Guardian) Analysts [who've seen the Zarqawi document] said the language differed from the vocabulary normally used in al-Qaida statements posted on the internet. It does not, for example, refer to the US as "crusaders" or use the term "rejectionists" when referring to Shias. [Uh, Al Qaeda websites are propaganda tools which use terms like crusaders and rejectionists to stir up anger against the coalition. Internal documents are not going to use unnecessary phrasing like the ones listed above…you morons.]

The document has also aroused scepticism because it appeared precisely tailored to suggest situations the US military and Iraqi government say they are hoping for. [When the left is desperate you can always count on them to make up some conspiracy theory. It’s like clockwork.]

Anyway, as I said, good news in Iraq means bad news for the far-left. Do you remember the reaction they had when the news of Zarqawi broke? They just can’t take it…Why I Hate the Far-Left

We Should Pull Out of America

The FBI is reporting that in the year 2005 there were nearly 17,000 murders in the United States and that violent crimes have increased. -story-

With the murder rate on the rise and an estimated 17,000 murders in the United States last year, and 16,137 in 2004, it seems our country is not worth fighting for. According to the Left’s mindset we should pull out of the United States. America can never be a democracy with so much violence on a yearly basis, can it?

Around 2,700 US service men and women have died in Iraq; meaning we should give up and let Al Qaeda win. Well, that’s what many Democrats have been pushing for, namely John Murtha. But if you think about it, we have been in that country (Iraq), where we have been fighting a war, and the numbers of American deaths are only a small fraction of citizen deaths inside America. So, since more Americans are killed in our own country than in Iraq, the Democrat's argument that we should immediately withdraw because it's too costly seems to be one that has no bearing in reality.

And the Democrat’s argument that American lives aren’t worth freeing millions of people should be irrelevant given that they never mention the number of deaths in the United States far out number those in a war zone. Maybe, it’s just the Bush factor that has them wanting to quit. Because obviously they care very little about U.S. citizens being murdered on our own soil; at least it seems that way based on the major media’s focus the last few years.

**In 2004 more Americans were murdered in California alone, than were killed in action serving in Iraq that year. In fact, in the year 2004, there were
2,394 reported homicides in California. Which means in the last 2 and a half years, more Americans have died in the Golden State than have died in the entire Iraq conflict. So, according to liberal logic, we should immediately withdraw from California and leave it to the criminal element…its’ not worth it, remember?

Democrats' Hopes Dashed on Rove News

Karl Rove seems to be cleared of any wrongdoing based on the announcement that he will not be facing any charges linked to the Valerie Plame case. (Washington Post) Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald has told White House aide Karl Rove that he does not expect to seek charges against him in connection with the CIA leak case, Rove's lawyer said today... In a statement this morning, Robert Luskin, Rove's attorney, said that Fitzgerald "has formally advised us that he does not anticipate seeking charges" against Rove.

This news comes at a time when both political parties are beginning to implement their strategy for the upcoming mid term elections. The Democrats were anxious to use the charge of "culture of corruption" against the Republicans and their main avenue of attack, before today, was to use Karl Rove as the poster child. Basically, Rove was the hinge that held together their swinging arms of hate. On one arm it’s attack President Bush and on the other arm was the phrase culture of corruption.

But as you well know, the Democrats have been mired in scandal for the past few months; making it more difficult to apply their election plans to retake the House of Representatives. And now with Karl Rove being cleared, it’s nearly impossible for them to effectively use him as a lightning rod. However, I’m sure that the opposition party will continue to placate their base by harping on the Plame issue and they will continue, despite the lack of evidence, to attack the president over the Rove/Plame issue. I say that I’m sure because Howard Dean has already tried to do exactly that. Upon hearing the news from Patrick Fitzgerald about the president’s top advisor, Dean said this, “If the President valued America more than he valued his connection to Karl Rove, then Karl Rove would have been fired a long time ago. So I think this is probably good news for the White House, but its not very good news for America.” -
Video-

Obviously, by Dean’s statement, the Democrats think that being innocent of any alleged misconduct is somehow bad news for America. Actually, what Dean really means is that Rove not facing indictment is bad news for him and his party. And the fact that “Bush’s Brain” will not be facing charges, leaves the Democrats with only one option; the same option that they have used for 5 years. That option is, of course, to relentlessly and incoherently bash President Bush.

Gitmo: Suicide an "Act of War"

It seems many people on the left are having trouble understanding how a Gitmo detainee committing suicide can be considered an act of war. But being the nice guy that I am, I'll try to explain it to them in simple enough terms so that even they can understand.

Hard-line members of Al Qaeda, such as those who killed themselves, use unconventional tactics in order to advance their efforts against the United States. That “asymmetrical warfare” as described by a US General stationed at the prison camp, is not uncommon for Islamic Extremists. For example, terrorists strap bombs to their waist and kill crowds of innocent people. They do this for several reasons and one of those reasons has to do with a propaganda strategy. And the last time I checked, blowing oneself up is considered suicide. Which means the argument that, “how can suicide be an act of war” is completely absurd.

This propaganda strategy was modified by these three detainees and is obviously working. The anti-war left was quick to attack the administration and the necessity of Guantanamo Bay. This was not an act of desperation as some anti-American elements in this country and the around the world want you to believe. AL Qaeda depends heavily on the far-left in America because they understand how to use them as tools; and that’s what they are doing now. What people seem to be forgetting, perhaps conveniently, is that many terrorists want to die and are more than willing to commit suicide to further their Jihad.

These three individuals were committed to their “God ordered” duty and happily gave their life for their cause. Luckily, they were captured and in a position to kill only themselves, not innocent people to push their strategy. That’s what’s great about Gitmo…it gives these terrorists no choice. And the left’s favorite excuse of "how do know if they were guilty", is not applicable in this case:

(
NY Times) "The Pentagon released a statement describing Mr. Ahmed, the Yemeni, as a "mid to high-level Al Qaeda operative" who was close to Abu al-Zubaydah, a senior figure for Al Qaeda who has since been captured. The statement also said that Mr. Habardi was a member of a terrorist group that recruits for Al Qaeda, and had been recommended for transfer to another country, presumably Saudi Arabia. The Pentagon said that Mr. Zahrani had been "a frontline fighter for the Taliban" and had participated in the prison uprising in 2001 at Mazar-i-Sharif in Afghanistan that resulted in the death of Johnny Micheal Spann, a C.I.A. operative."

If I Only Had A Brain

Have you ever had the feeling, when you’re arguing with a liberal on the net, that you’re dealing with some obnoxious twerp that was laughed at and mocked in high school? Well, now you know why I started calling the people at Daily Kos, the Kos Clowns.

(
Palm Beach Post) For all the bashing of the mainstream media at the YearlyKos convention, the bloggers in attendance clearly wanted to be taken seriously by the reporters covering the convention. Their blogs frequently quoted from mainstream newspaper articles, and they tried to have their photographs taken with the likes of New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd. [As if Maureen Dowd isn’t just as nuts as the Kos Clowns]

…But some started to worry about the image they were projecting outside the blogosphere on Saturday when some bloggers started an unusual contest - making the most original tinfoil hat.

Memo to Kos: Keep Your Supporters in the Basement


Just when a person has come to the conclusion that the liberal internet-folk cannot possibly be any more useless, they remind us all of how much we underestimate their absurdity. I have had to deal with people like the ones pictured above for some time now and I can assure you that I’m not surprised they would actually wear tinfoil hats at their blogger convention.

Those hats are what must keep logic and sound reasoning from influencing the left’s discourse.

Things You Won’t See on the Daily Show

Do you remember about a week ago when the news broke about Homeland Security cutting terrorism funding to New York and Washington DC. And do you remember when Chuck Schumer and Hillary Clinton plastered their faces all over the news proclaiming their outrage over the funding issue. Well, in typical liberal fashion it turns out that Hillary and Chuck Schumer both voted for cuts in terrorism money. (NewsMax) According to Newsday, the Democratic duo backed a $95 million cut last December in funding from the Centers for Disease Control for bioterrorism programs around the nation. Of that amount, approximately $3 million would have gone directly to New York City.

This is what Schumer had to
say about President Bush: Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., on Thursday said President Bush “should not come back to New York and stand with us” until his administration comes up with more money to keep New York safe. “This is wrong and unfair, but also outrageous,” Schumer said. “The bottom line is this is abandoning New York.”

And this is what Hillary Clinton had to
say about the funding cuts: “The Department of Homeland Security should ensure that our limited homeland security funds get to where they are needed... As we approach the solemn and tragic fifth anniversary of the September 11th attacks, we are sadly reminded that New York is on its own... These cuts demonstrate this Administration's continued failure to grasp the unique security threats that face New York. Our nation remains at risk and eliminating funding for areas most in need – like New York – demonstrates a pre-9/11 mentality that we should not tolerate.”

At least the two of them deserve an "A" for effort. Despite their constant lies and misleading rhetoric they always seem to come out unscathed. Rest assured this obvious hypocritical stance on terrorism funding will continue to go unreported. I say it all the time and I guess I’m forced to say it again: Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer are some of the worst political hacks known to man. It never ends…It's like when the Dems blamed Bush for them voting for the war in Iraq.

Hate The Troops; Love Al Qaeda

Well, you probably have heard about the 3 Gitmo detainees who successfully committed suicide. (Washington Post) Three detainees at the U.S. military detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, hanged themselves in their cells yesterday morning, the first inmates to die at the remote island prison since it opened in early 2002, according to military officials. Personally, I don’t have any sympathy for any captured terrorist that is being held abroad or in Guantanamo Bay. And I find their suicide to be a relief because they were unable to strap a bomb belt to their waist and were forced to kill only themselves. But that’s me not the liberal internet-folk. I’m sure you don’t have to guess what their reaction was to this story but I will post it anyway because it says a lot about them and their beliefs.

As you might have known, our friends on the left have really been disturbed by the suicides of the people with whom they have so much respect. The
Daily Kos Clown has an interesting take on the story. And by interesting I mean completely off-the-chart anti-American. This is what his site posted: Today's news is sad, but not surprising. When man manufactures hell on earth, it is not surprising that death becomes a tempting avenue of escape.

Oh, “Today’s news is sad”. Really, it’s sad? A terrorist is caught on the battlefield trying to kill American troops and when he commits suicide because he realizes the US isn’t going to bow down to misguided international pressure and release him, that’s sad? I don’t feel upset…but then again I don’t hate my country and the troops.


Next, the Daily Kos accuses man (the US Military) of making hell on earth. Meaning Guantanamo is a torture camp and these poor terrorists are being tortured in a prison reminiscent to Nazi Germany and Stalinist Russia. Of course that’s not true. The majority of detainees are not mistreated in any way. But don’t let reality get in the way of liberals and their America-hating.

“It’s not surprising that death becomes a tempting avenue of escape.” Right, because these detainees are in hell on earth and the only way to escape the evil clutches of "American hegemony" is not to renounce violence or stop being a terrorist, but rather not get caught. Because if you’re caught killing innocent people or fighting against American troops, God forbid you end up in Guantanamo Bay and be forced to kill yourself.

This is what Bill Goodman of the Center for Constitutional Rights, a New York-based advocacy group that oversees lawyers representing many of the detainees, had to say: "These are the latest victims and the most serious so far in the ongoing effort of this administration to impose a lawless system that denies justice... This is an act of desperation...A system without justice is a system without hope." -SFGate.Com-


These are the latest victims, eh? The latest victims are those who died in suicide blasts today. Blasts perpetrated by your beloved freedom fighters, not three detainees offing themselves. And dead terrorists sounds like justice and fairness to me-- Don’t you love Liberal America. Quick to condemn American Marines in Haditha and quick to sympathize with terrorist detainees.

Triple Threat Saturday

WASHINGTON -- The Army said Friday it surpassed its recruiting goal for May, marking the 12th consecutive month of meeting or exceeding its target.

That’s interesting isn’t it? I wonder why the major liberal blogs have not been reporting on this fact. I know they were all excited when the military was falling short of their recruitment goals. We heard about it 24/7…I guess when the military meets its goals they can’t use that to attack the administration or the war on terror.






Ann Coulter Slams Hillary

After Hillary Clinton attacked Ann Coulter for her remarks about four 9/11 widows and their political motivations, this is how Coulter responded. “Before criticizing others for being ‘mean’ to women, perhaps Hillary should talk to her husband who was accused of rape by Juanita Broderick and was groping Kathleen Willey at the very moment Willey’s husband was committing suicide”

If Hillary wants to go after someone she best think before she acts. Especially when her husband is Bill Clinton.





Kos Clowns Admit They Don’t Support the Troops

All this carefully calculated discussion of Zarqawi’s death is revealing just what a dialectical stranglehold the Right has over us right now. It’s great that a scumbag like that is dead, lord knows he deserves to rot in hell, but do we have to pour it on extra thick just to satisfy the Right’s bloodlust?... As far as wishing the soldiers a safe return, who the hell doesn’t want that? But when it comes to the day-to-day operations of occupation I can’t condone what’s going on over there and I won’t pretend I do."

Support No Troops: “Zarqawi felt my son’s breath on his hand as held the knife against his throat.Zarqawi had to look in his eyes when he did it. George Bush sits thereglassy-eyed in his office with pieces of paper and condemns people to death. That to me is a real terrorist.” —Michael Berg

Those who oppose the war in Iraq but who nonetheless feel compelled to express “support” for “our troops” might reflect that, without those troops, there would be no war. Simply put, if today’s troops would behave only as George II did during his own military service—that is, go AWOL—there would be no one available to prosecute the war.


Many people on the left just can't bring themselves to support the troops. They believe they are a force of the evil American empire. At least now some are willing to admit they never supported nor will they ever support the US service men and women who protect their freedom.

Why I Hate The Far-Left

It didn’t take long for some on the left to attack the United States and the President over the Zarqawi strike. It’s amazing how predictable some people can be. I’ll start with the elected officials and then move on to the major leftist blogs and end with their visitors comments.

(Washington Times) "This is just to cover Bush's [rear] so he doesn't have to answer"
for Iraqi civilians being killed by the U.S. military and his own sagging poll numbers, said Rep. Pete Stark, California Democrat.

Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich, Ohio Democrat, said Zarqawi was a small part of "a growing
anti-American insurgency" and that it's time to get out. "We're there for all the wrong reasons," Mr. Kucinich said.
So what the California Democrat believes is that George Bush purposely allowed Zarqawi to live while he murdered our troops, so that Bush could order him killed yesterday to distract the American people and raise his poll numbers.

Now to the websites and their reaction:

AmericaBlog: As Chris noted, we'll find out soon just how important Zarqawi was to all the violence. If the violence abates, Bush was right. If it continues, then we got fed another lie… Al Qaeda is - what? - like 10% of the total problem we're facing in Iraq? The Sunnis and the Shiites hate each other. Again, how does Zarqawi's death change that…? How's Osama doing?

Daily Kos: The Bush administration’s approach to this as a victory clearly shows the difference in cultures that is one major reason we’re in this mess in the first place. We have a system dependent upon leaders, Al-Qaeda has a system dependent upon brothers.
Fed another lie? Al Qaeda is only 10% of the problem in Iraq? Wow, their hatred for their country has really blinded them, hasn’t it? Needless to say the above statement from the Kos Clown's site is obviously madness.

And these are comments from the AmericaBlog article. I warn you they are from moonbats and you might throw up:
Link

-- "Could be true. Or the whole thing could be a "wag the dog" operation…”

-- "Could it have been a planned cover in case they couldn't make hay on gay marriage? I heard Zarqawi died long ago.”

-- "I, for one, am very happy for the simple reason the he's the one who killed Nick Berg.” [He doesn’t care about our troops?]

-- "I don't believe a word these bastards say. This bs is covering up for the fact that Bush cancelled investigations on wire-tapping."

Can anyone say Insane...

Dear Zarqawi, You're Dead Asshole!

BAGHDAD, June 8 --Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the mastermind behind hundreds of bombings, kidnappings and beheadings in Iraq, was killed early Wednesday by an air strike -northwest of Baghdad, U.S. and Iraqi officials said Thursday.

Zarqawi, a Jordanian-born high-school dropout whose leadership of the insurgent group al-Qaeda in Iraq made him the most wanted man in the country, was killed along with several other people -- including a woman and child -- near the city of Baqubah, the officials said.

U.S. warplanes dropped two 500-pound bombs on a house in which Zarqawi was meeting with other insurgent leaders. A U.S. military spokesman said coalition forces pinpointed Zarqawi's location after weeks of tracking the movements of his spiritual adviser, Sheik Abdul Rahman, who also was killed in the blast.




What a Beautiful sight

CIA Used Secret Prisons…Maybe

The Washington Post is reporting on theories from a European investigation that concluded the United States used secret prisons to house terrorists from around the world. These conclusions are admittedly based on no factual evidence but I’m sure they will aid greatly in the world sport of America hating.

(Washington Post) A European investigator concluded Wednesday that there are "serious indications" that the CIA operated secret prisons for suspected al-Qaeda leaders in Poland and Romania as part of a clandestine "spider's web" to catch, transfer and hold terrorism suspects around the world.

In addition, Dick Marty, a Swiss investigator working on behalf of the Council of Europe, the continent's official human-rights organization, said at least seven European nations colluded with the CIA to abduct and secretly detain terrorism suspects… "Even if proof, in the classical meaning of the term, is not as yet available, a number of coherent and converging elements indicate that such secret detention centers did indeed exist in Europe," Marty wrote.
“A number of converging elements", eh? First of all, I don’t believe anything any human rights organization has to say, especially from Europe. But I do believe the United States used “black sites” to detain and possibly extract information from suspected terrorists. I believe it because that’s what a responsible security agency should do to combat global terrorism and I’m proud that European countries, despite their politically motivated public opposition, are willing to assist the CIA in their clandestine efforts. This is a war in which rules matter less and quaint human rights laws are second to national security. And the more the so called human rights groups complain the stronger my support for these activities grow.

However, I am upset at one statement in the Washington Post report. The Post has not published the names of the East European countries involved in the covert program, at the request of senior U.S. officials, including a direct appeal from President Bush. They argued that the disclosure might disrupt counterterrorism efforts in those countries and elsewhere and make them targets of possible terrorist retaliation. Well gee wiz, how noble of you. This coming from the newspaper that illegally leaked the CIA program in the first place. This from the same paper that endangered the country and our allies to attack the Administration via the CIA. Self-righteous bastards!

Morons, Delusions, and O’Reilly

By now, I assume you and most other people have come to the realization that a certain type of person of a certain type of political persuasion, have in them, the ability to hate without sense or without reason. And it’s this type of person that tends to generate the most visitors to a website or success from a book, TV, etc. However, their success is really only due to the success of those they hate, not because of talent. For Example, Al Franken is a no-talent hack but since he attacks Bill O’Reilly and Fox, he automatically is a hero to the left and is made rich because idiots are willing to buy his books.

With that being said I will post an article from Newshounds:

Book Review - "Sweet Jesus I Hate Bill O'Reilly"

Hating Bill O’Reilly is not just a fad anymore. It’s a full-blown societal trend. Al Franken’s book Lying Liars, Robert Greenwald’s Outfoxed documentary, and other work laid the groundwork that blogs such as The News Hounds have been building on for nearly two years. MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann adds his personal vendetta against O’Reilly…

…Now, just in time for anyone hopping on board the Hate O’Reilly Express, there is Sweet Jesus, I Hate Bill O’Reilly – the book that will get you up to speed if you’re just now getting to hate Bill O’Reilly…

…Yet there is more. Sweet Jesus, I Hate Bill O’Reilly ((New York: Nation Books, 2006) also is highly analytical in its treatment of these greatest hits from the O’Reilly Life of Shame…

It has a lot more but I think you get the drift. What I find funny is that these people don't have anything if not for O’Reilly or Fox News. So I asked: “I'm just wondering why the same people who hate him are using him to make money. The only reason this blog site gets hits is because of Fox News; the only reason Al Franken is famous, among the left, is because of O'Reilly. So my question is why can't you (this site) and others create something original instead of using political rancor to gain visitors or like Franken, get rich. I'm guessing it's a lack of talent.”

Update: The Kos Clown has a Hate O’Reilly promo up: it’s a must see.

Insurgents Execute 21; No Outrage

BAGHDAD -- Masked gunmen methodically separated two busloads of passengers into Sunnis and Shi'ites before fatally shooting 21 Shi'ites yesterday, the latest attack in an ethnically driven campaign of violence that is systematically dividing the capital, one neighborhood at a time.

"They asked us to show our IDs, and then instructed us to stand in a line, separating the Sunni from the Shi'ite due to the IDs and also due to the faces," said Ismail, a wounded Shi'ite Kurd who told the Associated Press from his hospital bed that he survived by pretending to be dead.

The young man, who asked that his last name not be used, said the gunmen ordered the Shi'ites to lie down before they began firing. "On behalf of Islam, today we will dig a mass grave for you. You are traitors," he quoted one of them as shouting.



This massacre happened yesterday and is a clear-cut incident that requires no investigation to understand what happened. However, these killings, the horrible executions of almost two dozen innocent people has yet to garner the attention of the liberal internet-folk. I guess I can’t blame them; they are too busy being outraged at the US Marines in Haditha. They are too busy using that story as a way to attack the Administration. John Murtha is too busy using it to push his immediate withdrawal agenda and he just doesn't have the time to condemn our enemies...that's reserved for our troops

What really upsets me is how so many people (Democrats) are reveling in the allegations that US Marines might have murdered innocent people. It’s almost as if they are rooting for the United States military to be caught up in these types of investigations…scratch that, they are rooting for incidents like Haditha. The anti-war left believes the more accusations against their fellow Americans and the defenders of their freedom, the more likely we are to surrender to Al Qaeda in Iraq. The more likely it is for the evil American empire and its Nazi-like troops to be defeated and sent packing. The easier it is for them to hate Bush…

"Republicans Stole the Election"

I wasn’t going to post anything about the new, or shall I say, the regurgitated conspiracy theory that tends to only placate the awesomely delusional left-wing. However, since news outlets like CNN are more than happy to give credence to such ridiculous notions, such as those coming from Robert Kennedy Jr., I figured it was worth pointing out how sad and desperate the Democrats have become.

Robert Kennedy wrote an
article in Rolling Stone that outlined what he claims is proof that shows how the evil Republicans stole the 2004 presidential election. He provides absolutely no evidence but he does provide enough vagaries to convince the easily misled that John Kerry actually won the election and should be president. I’m not going to waste my time countering every argument made by Kennedy but you can read an article by John Hawkins that outlines how the charges from RFK Jr. don’t make sense. “This is same sort of thing that the moonbats who claimed the Pentagon wasn't hit by a plane used to sell so many books to liberals and Frenchmen. The point isn't to make solid arguments, it's to sling out countless accusations, true or false, from reputable sources or not, and then say that unless all your wacky claims are disproved -- then only a conspiracy could explain it! Meanwhile, any contrary evidence, no matter how devastating it may be to your case, is simply ignored as if it didn't exist.

To Kennedy, things like making sure that voter addresses match up to where they actually live and purging the voter rolls of people who no longer live in a district are nefarious acts while poorly handled elections in districts that are run from top to bottom by Democrats are clearly part of a Republican plot. It doesn't matter if it makes sense or not, the important thing is just to run up the number of accusations.”
RWN Story-

To me, this Kennedy conspiracy is like Hollywood trying to comfort themselves with shows like the West Wing and Commander in Chief. Liberals are so distressed that they are forced to create fantasy Democratic presidents in order to keep from having to face reality with a moral standard. In real life Liberals are so full of hate and rancorous politics that in order to fulfill the ideals they falsely claim they stand for, e.g., peace, tolerance, and understanding, they must create an environment in which they can enjoy a positive reinforcement of their own self-aggrandizing delusions. Kennedy cannot cope with the fact that his party lost the election so he created a fantasy world for himself and is now using it to elevate his stature among his self-righteous liberal brethren while attacking the GOP.

Master Jedi Bush


I felt like lightening the mood so here’s a video I promised a week ago. This is George Bush taking out Abe Lincoln and demanding he be brought some tacos. “Tacos Rule!”

Democrat To Use Draft as Scare Tactic

Well, they are doing it again. Representative Charles Rangel, the democrat from New York, has once again introduced legislation to reinstate the national draft in the United States. H.R.4752- Universal National Service Act of 2006 - Declares that it is the obligation of every U.S. citizen, and every other person residing in the United States, between the ages of 18 and 42 to perform a two-year period of national service, unless exempted, either as a member of an active or reserve component of the armed forces or in a civilian capacity that promotes national defense.

If you recall, the democrats used this scare tactic before. During the pre-invasion of Iraq, the same Charles Rangel who is currently pushing for the draft in 2006, introduced similar legislation in 2003. The purpose? To blame it on the Republicans. Do you remember during the Iraq war debate the left, with the assistance of the media, accused the White House of wanting to bring back the draft? It was an obvious attempt to scare Americans into thinking that George Bush was going to use the draft as a way to fight the war on terror. And it worked! People believed that the GOP was making an effort to force people to serve in the military when, in reality, it was none other than the Democrats calling for it. But that’s what they did. They introduced legislation they knew the American people would not like and then they accused the Republicans of trying to re-institute it. The media of course assisted the Dems in their propaganda…

That amazed me and this new attempt amazes me... It went unreported! The fact that the only people who were actually pushing for a military draft were the Democrats was never mentioned. So, look for the Dems in the mid-term elections to use the draft as a scare tactic. And don't forget, they will try to say that it’s the Republicans who are after this legislation; and the media will happily go along with this shameful ploy. It makes me sick...

Bill O’Reilly’s Talking Points Memo

"Predictably, the left wing press has run with the alleged massacre at Haditha, Iraq. Editorials are screaming about holding all those involved accountable; people like Congressman John Murtha are already convicting the military and the Bush administration.

As Investor's Business Daily put it, 'the press is salivating over the prospects of an Iraqi My Lai.' Why do so many rejoice when bad things happen to the USA? That's the key question, and the answer is that some Americans, including many in the press, honestly feel the Bush administration is evil and its policies have led to Abu Ghraib and now Haditha.

Most honest people acknowledge that the US military has performed heroically and humanely under extremely difficult circumstances in Iraq and Afghanistan. Since President Bush is the Commander in Chief and Donald Rumsfeld is in charge of military operations, don't the heroics of our service people reflect well on them? If you blame them for the bad stuff, shouldn't you praise them for the good stuff?

But we're not talking about fairness here; we're talking about media people and politicians saying 'I told you so' about Iraq. Every bad thing that happens there will be used by the left wing press and the John Murtha’s of the world to hammer home their mantra - 'Bush is a fool and the war is wrong.' So let's get this straight once and for all. If military people break the law or cover up crimes, they should be harshly punished. But there's no bigger picture here, at least not now. And anyone who uses the crimes in Iraq to besmirch this country is wrong and should be called on it. And trust me - they will be on this broadcast."



And you know what? Bill’s absolutely right. But I think I beat him to the punch and even took it one step further by explaining how and why the media is “salivating" over this story. Haditha and its Exploitation
