AmericaBlog Upsets Its Fringe Readers

In case you don’t know, AmericaBlog is a major whacked-left website that represents the utter nonsense that is typical of what I call extreme liberalism. However, the administrators of that blog, who are horridly insane themselves, were undoubtedly shocked when their readership went nuts over a post asking a very fair and legitimate question. It was as if these people were so dependent on reading extremist diatribes launched at Republicans, George Bush and Israel that when they barely glanced at a moderate view of the current conflict between Israel and Hezbollah their heads exploded.

The article posted was about the 34 dead civilians that were killed at Qana purportedly by an Israeli air strike. (As of now it looks like the evidence of this incident points to it being a legitimate target where Hezbollah purposely launched rockets and used civilians as human shields for propaganda purposes; which worked by the way). Anyway, the AmericaBlog article written by John in DC

So here's the ethical question of the day. Someone is firing hundreds of missiles at your citizens each day, and launching them from civilian areas because think they think you won't hit back (or hope you do, and thus kill civilians, causing a storm of bad publicity). As for the civilians, it's an open question whether they are helping harbor the guys with the missiles or not, i.e., whether or not they have a say in telling Hezbollah to take a hike (and if they do have a say, would that change your answer)?

So the question is this, under those circumstances, what do YOU do as the leader of country that's receiving 100 rockets a day raining down on your cities? Second question, which I've posed before. At what point does a local citizenry become responsible for the crimes it supports?

Those are fair questions, right? Well, at least to the non-deranged they are fair questions; questions that should be asked. But not to the their readers. To their readers that very moderate post is a “Church of Liberalism” sacrilege aimed at the very heart of the foundations of extreme liberalism. So naturally, came the denial; the denial that Hezbollah uses human shields…which is classic leftist. Then came the attacks on John: -Link- Out of the nearly 600 comments only a handful actually made sense. And When the extreme left is no longer extreme enough for the fringe left; you know this world is totally backwards. Here is one of my favorites: -John jumped the shark one this one....Inexcusable puppet that he is… JOHN YOU ARE ONE SUCH TERRORIST…. Now it's time to call on your spo[n]sors to pull ou[t] of this blog.

Roy Williams' Greatest HITS

It Doesn't Get Better Than Roy Williams

I don’t know about you but I’m ready for some damn football.

UN Whines about Being Targeted

Israeli Defense Forces successfully struck up to six UN observations posts recently. The strikes have caused widespread outrage and even Kofi Annan has spoken out. He claims that the IDF attacks were deliberate because the UN allegedly made several distress calls to the Israeli force indicating that they were being bombarded with artillery rounds and Laser Guided Munitions. Israel, as of now, is denying any deliberate attack on the observation posts but that seems unlikely if the reports of warnings are accurate.

So how do I feel about it…Let’s see. The UN actively works against America’s interests. They are notoriously anti-Semitic. They are horridly ineffectual when it comes to major world crises. By working against countries like the United States and Israel, the United Nations puts itself on the side of terrorists, or as they call them, “freedom fighters”. The UN props up dictators like Saddam Hussein and allows countries like North Korea and Iran to build nuclear weapons. They empower rogue entities like Iran, Cuba, China, and others. And the UN has very much endangered the lives of the American people and the US military…

Given that I have no condemnation towards Israel if they indeed purposely hit these UN stations. It’s possible they could have been assisting members of Hezbollah and or their sympathizers. I do, however, regret that individual peacekeepers were killed in the air strikes. But again, this is a war. So if the UN wants to be involved in this war and continues taking sides against Israel and their efforts to defend itself, then the UN should not be surprised if they are targeted.
Update, Friday: Killed UN observer's e-mail contradicts Kofi Annan
UN and Hezbollah side by side.

The Front Line in the War on Terror

The Iraqi Prime Minister spoke to congress this morning and reiterated the fact that the war in Iraq is the central front in the war on terror. He also denounced groups like Al Qaeda for “perverting the Islamic faith”. WASHINGTON (AP) — Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki insisted Wednesday that his country is a front line in the war on terrorism and said those behind the rampant violence there are perverting the Islamic faith. "I know some of you question whether Iraq is part of the war on terror," al-Maliki told a joint meeting of Congress.

A quick review has President George W. Bush, Osama Bin Laden and the Iraqi government all in agreement: Iraq is the key front in this long war against global terrorism. Now all we need to do is get those pesky partisan Democrats to understand that Iraq is vital to this worldwide conflict (easier said than done, huh?). Because as I pointed out before; their party has a dilemma. If we win in Iraq the Dems view it as a Bush victory not an American victory. That means that they view a loss in Iraq as a Bush loss not an American loss.

And guess what happened as the leader of the new constitutionally elected Iraqi government began to speak for his country? Yup, an anti-war protestor
interrupted him mid-sentence yelling, “stop the occupation send them home now, stop the occupation send them home now”. Yeah, it makes me want to throw up too. I’m not even sure how to take that outburst because basically she happens to be yelling at Iraqi freedom. I doubt someone as dense as this protestor understands that screaming at a man that is trying to establish a freer and more peaceful existence for his country, who was duly elected by a historical government, is advocating either terrorism or Saddam Hussein over their struggle.

Another side note: Nancy Pelosi and Chucky Schumer, along with others, threatened to boycott Mr. Maliki’s speech to Congress because of his position on the Israel-Hezbollah conflict. So much for free speech…

Nobel Prize Winner Wants Bush Killed

NOBEL peace laureate Betty Williams displayed a flash of her feisty Irish spirit yesterday, lashing out at US President George W. Bush during a speech to hundreds of schoolchildren. "I have a very hard time with this word 'non-violence', because I don't believe that I am non-violent," said Ms Williams, 64. "Right now, I would love to kill George Bush." Her young audience at the Brisbane City Hall clapped and cheered.

That’s not very peaceful of her now is it? And you thought I was kidding about the affects of indoctrination around the world. But when a room full of schoolchildren cheers a deranged activist for wanting to kill the President of the United States, you can no longer deny it. We are in a world in which terrorism is excused and America is attacked. We are in a world where independent students are
derided for exposing teachers like Jay Bennish and their indoctrinating practices; we’re in a world where teachers like Ward Churchill have free reign to manipulate impressionable students. When I think about it…this is more important than terrorism. I have come to believe that the left-wing media cabal is more dangerous to America’s sovereignty and our interest than the terrorist group Al Qaeda is. I do not say that lightly either.

One of the first articles I posted here at Blogger was called,
“Let’s Reward Idiots”. It was about an underreported story on Harold Pinter, a recent Nobel Prize winner. He is also a rage-filled anti-American that I quoted saying, "I found that to emerge from a personal nightmare…- the nightmare of American hysteria, ignorance, arrogance, stupidity and belligerence; the most powerful nation the world has ever known effectively waging war against the rest of the world”. It’s the typical view being spewed from the typical skewed logic that has infected many people across the world. Read his article “The American administration is a bloodthirsty wild animal” and you’ll understand how misguidedly sadistic and wrong these people can be.

Allow me to explain something, If I may, to those unfamiliar with how the “world community” works. Peace, to these people [the world community] is measured by one thing; the use of the American military. To these types of people the barbarity of terrorism and dictatorship is very much acceptable but when the “evil” America uses force to stop the “peace” that is in actuality genocide, it’s unacceptable. That's just the basic qualifications of being "honored" with a "peace" prize

Kerry: Diplomacy + Jihad = Peace

John Kerry gave a speech yesterday and claimed that he, the almighty liberal, would have prevented the current Mid East conflict between Israel and Hezbollah. "If I was president, this wouldn't have happened," said Kerry during a noon stop at Honest John's bar and grill in Detroit's Cass Corridor. "The president has been so absent on diplomacy when it comes to issues affecting the Middle East," Kerry said. "We're going to have a lot of ground to make up because of it."

Senator Kerry made the claim at a bar and grill… I guess that explains it, he must have been drunk. He said because President Bush focused on Iraq, it created the Middle East tensions we are seeing today. Of course, Kerry was
pushing for the war in Iraq long before Bush was in office and actually voted for it, so I think he was focused as well. But don’t tell him that; it’s practically a sacrilege on Kerry’s part to remind America that he and his fellow Democrats wanted this war just as much as Dick Cheney.

I don’t even know what that statement means. He along with 'diplomacy' would have prevented what exactly? What tensions was he going to subdue? Kerry must be thinking of the magical wand of appeasement that I referred to last week. Or does he have connections with Hezbollah? How was he going to stop the actions of a terrorist group? Wait a minute…my mistake. I’m actually thinking in logical terms. I have to think in lefty terms. OK, I get it now. Everything is Bush’s fault…just him not being here would solve everything. Wow, that is a lot easier to do than trying to think.

**Anyway, this goes to the heart of the difference between rational and responsible leadership and to what’s known as liberal leadership. I mean, yeah Democrats may be great on the environment but when it comes to combating terrorism there is no way they should be trusted. Democrats want the terrorist enemy to be appeased because they think that conflict is bad. Republicans want the terrorist enemy destroyed because we think that conflict is the reality. Democrats think a cease fire is peace while Republicans think a cease fire will only help the enemy. Democrats think negotiation is possible with the unreasonable and genocidal and Republicans know that it's not. Democrats believe that Hamas, Hezbollah and Al Qaeda are capable of seeing the error of their ways, while Republicans know that these groups will soon attack a major western city with nuclear, biological, or chemical weapons. Democrats think that terrorists can be reasoned with and Republicans know that the only good terrorist is a dead one. See the difference…

Sure you can end the current hostility by coming to a cease-fire agreement but you can’t end the jihad. In fact all a cease fire would do right now is allow for Hezbollah to regroup, reorganize, re-equip and will send the distinct message that they can deliver as mush damage as they wish because the world will sooner rather than later, force Israel to stop. It shows weakness.

ACLU Demands U.S. Be Condemned

The ACLU posted a message on their website proclaiming to be encouraged by the United Nations Human Rights Committee questioning the US government on several issues concerning human rights. The HRC wants answers from the United States on specific incidents including the militarization of the border, Hurricane Katrina, warrant-less spying on ordinary Americans and the indefinite detention, rendition and torture of non-citizens. The examination was at the behest of the ACLU which provided the UN council a report in which it claims details the expansive violations of the United States. GENEVA, SWITZERLAND — A United Nations human rights body expressed grave concerns today about the record of human rights in the United States. The American Civil Liberties Union with a delegation of 10 and working with a broad coalition of other groups is in Geneva to monitor the examination of the United States the U.N. Human Rights Committee (HRC).

I'm not surprised the ACLU would turn to the most corrupt organization on the planet to draw out a report that they can, in turn, use to solidify their own anti-American and corrupt self. That’s how the game works. It’s like the left-wing media creating credibility for groups such as Amnesty International so that when Amnesty International makes bogus charges against the United States the media can turn around and use that to push their agenda. It can basically be seen as an international cabal based on a set of similar beliefs all of which can be described as not pro-American. And what is ironic about all of this hoopla is that the UN HRC is comprised of some of the worst human rights violators in the world; Cuba, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and China all aid in setting policy.

As for the heart of the story and the possible human rights violations…what can I say? Has the United States violated core human rights in the past? Yes. Did America violate human rights under Democratic administrations? Yes. Has every other country in the world done the same? Yes. Is America at the top of the list of worst offenders? No. Are some of the worst offenders on the actual Human Rights Committee? Yes. Is America the country that has provided more Freedom for oppressed people in modern history than any other country? Yes. Should we fight the war on terror with the UN or the HRC in mind? No. Should we stop tracking terrorists via the NSA or should we stop detaining terrorists indefinitely because the so called “world community” (the community largely made up of terrorist-sympathizers, anti-Semites, anti-American, anti-capitalist, anti-Republican) whines about their beloved freedom fighters? No.

It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s the Infidel!

Muslim Readers Fear Superman
I woke up this morning and read a story that really made me laugh and at the same time, made me very worried. The story is about an advertisement in the newspaper 7Days based out of Dubai. They ran a special about the new Superman Movie where they had the man of steel being seen flying over Dubai and over Luxor in Egypt. Of course Superman is a fictional character but don’t tell some Muslim readers of the 7DAYS that.

The newspaper was forced to post a disclaimer about the advertisement because it received enough phone calls from freaked-out readers who thought there was a real American named Superman actually flying over the Middle East.

Disclaimer: 7DAYS would like to point out that the four-page ‘Daily Planet’ supplement carried in yesterday’s paper was an advert for the release of the new movie ‘Superman Returns’. Superman has not really been spotted flying down Sheikh Zayed Road nor has he been seen swooping over Luxor in Egypt. 7DAYS would like to thank those readers who thought otherwise for their concerned telephone calls.

Yeah, it’s hilarious just thinking about some person pissing their pants at the thought of a flying infidel but it’s also pretty scary to know that some people are so contemptuous or paranoid of America that they could come to believe that Superman is real and might threaten their beliefs. I don’t know if it speaks to a middle ages mindset or if it’s a product of a systematic indoctrination in the Arab world…maybe both. Either way it is outright funny. -Superman, the new secret weapon of the Americans that was conjured up with the help of Satan... and he's comin' for your oil!

LA Times Blames Bush for Zidane Headbutt

Most people believe that the Italian player, Marco Materazzi, instigated Zidane’s reaction by cursing his mother and sister. According to the Times of London, Materazzi called Zidane the “son of a terrorist whore”.

So naturally, at least in the mind of the LA Times, that quote means all the blame should be placed upon President Bush. Yes, it’s all Bush’s fault that he head-butted the Italian player. (
Pat Morrison LA Times) NOW WE KNOW why France's team captain lost his cool in the World Cup finals and France lost the trophy to Italy --Terrorism. That's pure trickle-down politics. From the White House to the soccer pitch, "terrorist" has "cooties" and "your mother wears combat boots" flat beat as the top playground potty-mouth slur for the 21st century.

Who's surprised? The Bush administration has been scattering the word like ticker tape on a Manhattan parade. Old McDonald left the farm for the NSA, and now it's here a terrorist, there a terrorist, everywhere a terrorist.

Hey, who am I to disagree with that type of liberal logic. The president accurately pointing out that terrorism exists and we are war with those who practice the barbarity of terrorism has made the word "terrorist" into a “potty-mouth playground slur”. And it was that mindset that somehow caused Materazzi to degrade Zidane’s family, which in turn, forced the head-butt…I guess when Bush is to blame for everything, from creating stronger hurricanes in order kill the black people of New Orleans to the Sago mine accident, it’s not too much of a stretch to blame him for the Zidane incident. –When will it end?

I guess it just irks me to know that so many of the media ilk have the power of persuasion over the millions of easily mislead youths in America and in Europe. Look how effective they can be. People actually believe that Bush is evil, and hates gay people, hates black people, wants a theocracy, had a part in 9/11…millions of people truly believe all of that crap. And what’s even more frightening is that they believe it to the point where they tense up when they are met with reason and rational opinion.

Dave Chappelle as Howard Dean

I watched the new Chappelle show episode last night and nearly passed out from laughter when I saw this. I was hoping someone recorded it… BYAAAAH!

Dave Chappelle as Howard Dean. Damn, This is Hilarious!

So This Is Their Party Chairman?

Howard Dean made himself look like an idiot again yesterday by using the escalating violence in the Middle East to attack President Bush. Yeah, big shocker there, huh? In an insane rant about how Bill Clinton and the Democrats would have prevented all of the current bloodshed Dean said this, “If you think what's going on in the Middle East today would be going on if the Democrats were in control, it wouldn't, because we would have worked day after day after day to make sure we didn't get where we are today. We would have had the moral authority that Bill Clinton had when he brought together the Northern Irish and the IRA, when he brought together the Israelis and the Palestinians.”

Ah, yes the great Billy Boy Clinton and his magical wand of appeasement sure did a lot for the Middle East. Wasn’t he the one who called for Hamas, when the terrorist group gained power, to be respected
saying, “[Hamas might] acquire a greater sense of responsibility, and as they do we have to be willing to act on that. One of the politically correct things in American politics ... is we just don't talk to some people that we don't like, particularly if they ever killed anybody in a way that we hate.” Wow, Bill was sure on top of that…just look how well Hamas has done capturing and killing Israeli soldiers, effectively creating the situation we are seeing today. And great example, scream machine Dean; the moral authority of Bill Clinton…Ha

The DNC Chairman also went on to imply that we should strike Iran and North Korea. Did the liberal base of the Democratic Party realize this? Your spokesman seems to be calling for war with Iran and North Korea. Here I thought he was the “anti-war” candidate. “You know, people say the Republicans are tough on defense. How can you be tough on defense if five years after 9/11, Osama bin Laden is still at large, the Iranians are about to get nuclear weapons, North Korea's quadrupled their nuclear weapons stash. . . . Explain to me how it is that this president is tough on defense?”

Well, given the fact that President Bush has assembled a huge diplomatic mission that has brought together the European Union to put pressure on Iran and has created a six party negotiating system to deal with North Korea, Howard Dean must be implying that we should have already engaged these countries militarily. Unless, he is just using blame-Bush rhetoric to rally his base…yeah, maybe that’s it…either way, he doesn’t make sense. Oh, I almost forgot to mention the fact that it was the policy of the Clinton administration that allowed North Korea to build nuclear weapons. I Also can’t leave out the
moronic idea of Bill Clinton to hand nuclear bomb blueprints over to the Iranians. That was gold.

But thanks for the laughs Howard. And let me clue you in on something Mr. Chairman. Creating a fa├žade in an attempt to cover the absolute bullshit of pretending, as the Clinton Administration did, that Islamic Extremists or radical dictators are primed for compromise, is what gets us in these types of messes in the first place. All that Clinton did was appease the enemy which only helped them build in strength. Not a success Dean; an utter failure.

Triple Story Saturday

-Coaches Torture Boys with Screws-

Two coaches at a local gym could face criminal charges for harming young athletes. Seminole County investigators said the coaches used drywall screws to discipline gymnasts... Seminole County sheriff's investigators said Coach Mike Turner and another coach repeatedly stabbed one of the boys and a brother with dry wall screws, breaking the skin on their buttocks, leaving permanent scarring. -Story-

Imagine if this happened at Gitmo. The world would catch on fire with anti-American protests calling for the prison to be closed. All hell would break loose.

-Kos Clown Wishes Israel Destroyed-

Imagine a world without Israel:
-Muslims, Jews, and Christians could live in peace without fear of mutual destruction.
-We could bring down the Wall, send prisoners home, and families could be reunited.
-We could dismantle checkpoints, open crossings, and pull down barbed wire fences.
-There would be no more settlements or armed settlers because the people would be united.
-No more suicide bombers or sniper fire, and no more dead civilians.
-No more targeted killings and hell-fire missiles, or systematic demolitions.
-Palestinians and Jews could live together and the world could address other issues.
-What a simpler place this world would be if there was no need for a Jewish majority - where there would otherwise be none.

Here we have someone from the Daily Kos lamenting the fact that Israel still exists. They actually think that if Israel was destroyed or would somehow disappear, peace would automatically follow. Jews and Muslims could live side by side with no more terrorism or violence. That is the classic anti-Israel pro-“freedom-fighter” mentality in a nutshell.

WHITE SANDS MISSILE RANGEThe pre-dawn art show was the result of the third of five tests planned at White Sands Missile Range to determine the effectiveness of THAAD — Terminal High Altitude Area Defense missile. And military officials said the test went better than they could have hoped... The test demonstrated the THAAD's ability to "completely destroy that warhead so that no chemical or nuclear residue would contaminate areas" below the explosion, Driessnack said.

I live right by White Sands Missile Range in the great city of Las Cruces where we get the privilege of not only being near a key instillation for national defense technology but we get to see Stealth fighters and bombers without having to worry about being bombarded. Near Las Cruces and White Sands is the actual home of the F-117A Nighthawk Stealth Fighter. So we get to see them training all the time. In fact, just two days ago around the time of the major strikes against Lebanon, I saw two Fighters running a training mission…coicidence; are we getting prepared?

The Shit Has Just Hit the Fan

“War” has broken out in the Middle East and Israel is now on the offensive after the kidnappings and acts of aggression perpetrated by the terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah. Israel has struck targets in Lebanon including Beirut’s airport and military instillations as well as initiated a blockade on Lebanese air and sea interests. They have also struck Hezbollah headquarters and are now threatening to take out known residences of members of the terrorist group.- Bombing continues and will likely continue as long as these terrorist organizations refuse peace.

Breaking: It is now being reported that Israeli intelligence is suspecting Iranian Revolutionary Guard in a missile attack that has hit Haifa. Again, not a rocket but an actual missile has damaged the city and was likely launched by the Iranian special forces located in Lebanon; forces who happen to be partners with Hezbollah. If true it will likely further escalate what now seems to be a regional war.

Iran has provided material support and controls large sects of Hezbollah and is effectively waging military action on Israel via that group, as now seen. So what happens if this conflict escalates and Iran involves itself directly as might be the case with the missile attack? What would be the consequences of any such action? The United States has an obligation to protect the state of Israel and President Bush has rightly vowed to do so against any aggression. It is now, once again, up to the United States of America to stem what might become a full scale war between Iran, Syria, and Israel. But is it possible?

Will our help work or will this turn into something that we all know has been brewing for decades? Should the US even try to stem the violence, effectively weakening our hard-line stance, or should we support Israel militarily in their efforts to defend itself? Remember that Iran wants to destroy Israel and remember that they are currently developing nuclear weapons. So, if we step in to stop the violence we only strengthen their hand when they go on the offensive the next time. And imagine if Iran had nuclear weapons now; during this conflict. They would have the upper hand while we would be limited in our action. Given that, maybe now is the time. Strike Syria, strike Iran and unleash the full force of the Israeli Military! Perhaps the United States should use this opportunity to annihilate the government of Iran as well as every military target and nuclear facility they can. This war will happen now or later; and if it happens now, Iran and Syria will not have the nuclear capability.

I say that since this current conflict was not initiated by the Israelis they have the right to inflict as much damage as they see fit to defend themselves. However, the anti-Semitic elements in the UN including France are blaming Israel and condemning them for retaliating against Lebanon and Hezbollah. The United States was forces to veto a UN resolution condemning Israel for their reentrance into Gaza.
Update, 12:17pm Friday- Hezbollah leader calls for all out war

More Heartbreaking News for the Dems

It turns out that Robert Novak found out the name of Joe Wilson’s wife not by a source but by looking it up in Wilson’s own entry in “Who’s Who in America” (pdf). And her status as a CIA analyst was inadvertently brought up in a long conversation and was only confirmed as true; it was never leaked to Novak in an attempt to out her name and status for political revenge.

My Leak Case Testimony: ‘I learned Valerie Plame’s name from Joe Wilson’s entry in ‘Who’s Who in America’… Published reports that I took the Fifth Amendment, made a plea bargain with the prosecutors or was a prosecutorial target were all untrue… My primary source has not come forward to identify himself… Bill Harlow, the CIA public information officer who was my CIA source for the column confirming Mrs. Wilson’s identity… I answered questions using the names of Rove, Harlow and my primary source… I considered his wife’s role in initiating Wilson’s mission, later confirmed by the Senate Intelligence Committee, to be a previously undisclosed part of an important news story. I reported it on that basis.

We heard the left whine, we heard them cry, and we heard them call for the head of Karl Rove. And after all that whining what was accomplished? Well, nothing relevant was accomplished but it did provide another partisan hate fest on the part of Democrats and their liberal base. There were calls for Rove to be fired, claims of treason, and the drum beat of a Republican conspiracy of political revenge. But as usual, the evidence and investigations contradict the outrage of the far-left and has made them look like the fools they were born to be.

Maybe an honest liberal can now truthfully answer this question. Given that there was no actual leak and no conspiracy to out Valerie's CIA status, you must obviously now admit that the outing of secret programs by the NY Times, which significantly endangered the country and hampered our ability to combat terrorism, is far worse than the Plame case and since you wanted Rove to be fired you now wish for the editor and writer of the treasonous articles to be prosecuted, correct? I’ll just take it as a yes, I don’t want you to look like hypocrites or complete idiots.
Update- Novak: No Bush Administration Effort to Discredit Joe Wilson

Pacifism is objectively pro-Fascist

"Pacifism is objectively pro-Fascist. This is elementary common sense. If you hamper the war effort of one side you automatically help that of the other. Nor is there any real way of remaining outside such a war as the present one." -George Orwell-

I found this quote long after I wrote an article titled, Peace Groups: Anti-War, Pro-Brutal Dictatorship. The point of the post was to point out how hypocritical it was for people here in this country and indeed abroad to rally around the notion that going to war in Iraq was somehow breaking the “peace”. Many pacifists, I believe, are of the mindset that peace is only achievable by an absence of military action or governmental force. The quaint phrase, “violence only breeds violence” comes to mind when I think about how they view the world. Of course, that argument is shattered by its fundamental flaw; the fact that non-violence hasn’t the power to prevent the pre-occurring violence already taking place. As I have said before, being anti-war does not actually mean you are truly for peace. It means only that you are content with the status quo prior, in this case, to American military action. And the status quo was not peace but a tyrannical dictatorship that was headed by one of the worst tyrants in history.

The more realistic of people hold to a different view of the world. That view happens to hold strength, i.e., American military might and economic superiority as the key to live in a MORE peaceful world. And we understand the fact that these problems; the problems of rogue nations and the real possibility of nuclear advancement among these states and its willingness to transfer materials to extremists, will not go away by being nice to them. For example, during the Clinton administration president Clinton was willing to take the pacifist approach, or as I know it, the appeasement approach with the country of North Korea. They signed a nuclear deal that was foolishly hoped would prevent Kim Jong-Il from accruing nuclear weapons. But, as you now know, North Korea has up to six such weapons… all thanks to peace. Another example is Iran. For years, over a decade, the US government took a back seat to European methods in dealing with the terrorist state and as you can see, they are well on their way to building weapons of mass destruction… all thanks to non-violence.

The point is that so-called diplomacy or peaceful negotiations does not work when the nation you happen to be negotiating with is completely unwilling to keep its word, and is only using the diplomatic process to bide time to develop the technology they want. Pacifism in many cases, especially the war on terror, like in WW2, only helps our enemies. "True peace is a phantom ideal that only leads the weak to the slaughter." -Anthony Tafoya-

The Border, Abortion, Gay-Marriage, and Iraq

This blog has been denounced as a Right Wing Neocon blog simply because of my disdain for the liberal agenda and the Democratic Party. So I have decided to lay out my positions on some of the most devisive issue in America today because I happen to think I am a very moderate Republican. In fact if the Dems would have nominated Dick Gephardt as their candidate in 2004, I might have voted for him over my man GW.

Abortion: Against abortion in principle but I am pro-choice if the person is of adult age and the abortion takes place within a limited amount of time. I’m against all late-term procedures and vehemently against any underage females using groups like Planned Parenthood to receive any such procedure. All persons underage must have legal guardian consent in order to have any surgery or any procedure of the magnitude of an abortion. Not only do I feel parental consent is required but all underage persons who choose to terminate a growing life should be forced, by the state, to take at least a short term counseling program that helps with the psychological aspects of making such a choice.

Gay Marriage: I am for gay marriage if it is voted into law by a state legislative process; by the people. I am against gay marriage being made legal though the Supreme Court or any Bill or amendment passed at the federal level. I am also against an amendment banning same sex marriage but am against gay-marriage in general. However, I am strongly in favor of Civil Union legislation because I believe that same sex couples should be recognized by the state and have similar financial and medical rights as married couples.

The Border: I don’t mind giving amnesty to illegal immigrants that are already in this country but they must register within 90 days of any such announcement. I don’t mind allowing these people to stay, not only because they have been here and likely have children who were born in this country, but because it is logistically impossible to deport 20 million people. Although, any amnesty given to any illegal alien must only come when the southern border of the United States is completely secured and a very stringent screening process is in place. After a wall is constructed in strategic places and the Border Patrol agency is significantly increased and a screening process or guest worker program is operational, any illegal alien caught thereafter must be jailed and immediately deported…no questions and no exceptions.

The War in Iraq: I strongly support the effort in Iraq and the decision to remove Saddam Hussein from power and the attempt to establish a Democratic State and the process of creating a foothold in the heart of the Middle East. However, I do not agree with the way this war has been handled by the DOD, specifically Donald Rumsfeld. I strongly disagree with the “hearts and minds” strategy and feel that the Powell Doctrine should have been implemented. I think that President Bush should immediately fire Donald Rumsfeld for gross incompetence on the Iraq front and beg General Powell to return or replace him with someone who can win this war. In other words, we need to take the damn gloves off!

Evidence: Gitmo Suicides a Broader Plot

New evidence indicates that the three Gitmo detainees who recently committed suicide used letters to coordinate their efforts with each other. By using notes that were intended for confidential communications between the detainees' lawyers and themselves, they were able to keep these messages from the prison guards. The notes passed along seem to indicate that a broader goal was in mind than simply killing themselves out of desperation as many anti-war and anti-Bush elements were hoping for.

(Washington Post) Three suicides at the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, may have been part of a broader plot by detainees who were using confidential lawyer-client papers and envelopes to pass handwritten notes their guards could not intercept, according to documents that government lawyers filed yesterday in federal court.

Detainees could apparently hide documents in their cells -- including instructions on how to tie knots and a classified U.S. military memo regarding cell locations of detainees and camp operational matters at Guantanamo -- by keeping the materials in envelopes labeled as lawyer-client communications… In an affidavit filed with the court, Rear Adm. Harry B. Harris Jr., the facility's commander, said the Naval Criminal Investigative Service has information that suggests the suicides "may have been part of a larger plan or pact for more suicides that day or in the immediate future."

Not only does this cast doubt upon the "desperation" claim,
which frankly was a ridiculous argument in the first place, but it also points suspicion at some of the lawyers for the detainees as well. NCIS is planning to investigate the possibility of third-party assistance in these deaths and has implied that lawyers may have acted improperly with regards to their attorney-client privileges. Of course, this behavior is not unprecedented for terrorist-sympathizing lawyers as seen with Lynne Stewart who was convicted of aiding and abetting terrorists in their efforts to kill innocent people abroad and even Americans here at home.

However, the community of attorneys that are defending the suspected Al Qaeda members at Guantanamo Bay are claiming that the idea of them playing a part in this incident is outrages and claimed this is only a conspiracy to keep their clients isolated. Barbara Olshansky of the Center for Constitutional Rights, which represents most of the Guantanamo detainees, said the allegations that lawyers could have played a role in the suicides are "patently offensive" and "outrageous." She said the government is again trying to make it difficult for lawyers to represent the 450 detainees held there.

Ah, but I don’t for one second, take that argument seriously. And do you know why? Because that claim is coming from the Center for Constitutional Rights, “which represents most of the detainees”. And guess who
vigorously defended the convicted terrorist enabler Lynne Stewart…yup, the Center for Constitutional Rights. So we have terrorist-enablers, and the defenders of those enablers, defending terrorists against an Administration they hate, making statements that clearly show sympathy for Al Qaeda while painting their own country as the bad guy...damn they're a vile group. By the way, don't be surprised if some people get upset about this evidence and start claiming its spin form the military. That will be the typical response to this news because they already have their mind set on believing what they want to believe.

Biden: Give Me My Damn Slurpee, Ganish!

Senator Joe Biden gave us one of those moments when a Democrat tries to be funny but it only comes out as overly awkward. In a conversation with what seems to be an Indian supporter, Biden likened immigrants from India to 7/11 workers and doughnut makers. Can anyone say, "liberal tolerance"?

BIDEN: In Delaware, the largest growth of population is Indian Americans, moving from India. You cannot go to a 7/11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking.” -Video via ETL-
And you can’t go to jail without seeing a black man.
And you can’t go to China Town without seeing some chinks.
And you can't go to San Francisco without having to see some hyper-fag drag queens.
And you can’t go to Washington without having to see some moron like Joe Biden.
Ain't that right Joe. Hey, some populations grow for the better and some populations grow for the worse, what can you do?

But I am glad to know that the Delaware Senator feels that the peak of Indian advancement in his state, is working at the Kwik-E-Mart. Let me give you some advice for your next campaign Mr. Biden. Many Indians, especially women, are very skilled doctors and surgeons. Try using that as an example, and not the 7/11 line. But if you feel compelled to use a racial slur as a joke, which I don’t mind, at least make it funny or over the top like my hyper-fag drag queen joke.

Can't We All Just Hate Each Other

I’ve been reminded of something about people on the left that was highlighted by a blogger who recently commented on my site. He kept insisting that I am an ignorant, hate-filled person who is basically causing the erosion of intelligent debate. However, while at the same time he was on his high horse lecturing me about how negative my politics can be, he kept attacking me personally and calling me names. He literally would contradict himself in nearly every paragraph he worte. This type of hypocritical behavior is not new so I’ve come up with a model of some of the typical contradictory arguments we hear from Liberals

Tell me if this sounds about right:
-We should all love and embrace each other- you fuckin’ idiot!
-Why can’t we all get along- you stupid neocon warmongering Nazi!
-We are all people of the world and we all deserve respect- God I hate religious Jesus-freaks
-We liberals are intellectuals- hey, get the pie ready, we’re gonna throw it at Ann Coulter
-People hate too much in politics- yeah, especially those gay bashing toothless rednecks. Man those stupid rednecks hate too much.
-We want a civilized debate- Too bad the corporate shills and evil fear-mongering Nazi rethuglicans who oppress minorities and contribute to the war machine, don’t.

What I find funny is that they will say these types of things and never recognize the irony of it. And I just want to make one more point: Yes, we know you hate Bush, we know you hate the military, we know you hate Republicans, we know you're intolerant of opinions and positions that differ from yours, we know you're a bunch of bitter and desperate human beings searching for something that can make you feel better, we know that. Just let it go...Gore lost, Kerry lost…get over it.

Peace Activists go on Hunger Strike

First Gitmo detainees, then Saddam Hussein, and now the far-left…why am I not surprised? I guess it’s just another example of how much peace groups and members of Al Qaeda have in common.

It was
reported today that several Hollywood actors are joining Cindy Sheehan in a day long hunger strike. The strike is being used as a protest to the war in Iraq and to draw attention to the anti-war cause. Cindy herself is planning to go without food until Sept. 1st and the co-founder of Code Pink, Diane Wilson, claims she will not eat food until all American troops come home from Iraq. So naturally the question I have to ask is, “Is it OK for me to hope they starve to death”?

I did, in a way, hope that those activists who went to Iraq as human shields were hit by a 500 lb bomb. Unfortunately, the human shields fled upon finding out that Saddam Hussein wanted to place them at military targets to discourage air raids. It was funny because they actually believed Saddam was an individual that cared enough to place them in low risk areas…that’s how stupid anti-war nuts can be.

Anyway, some of the actors that have joined this protest are, of course, Susan Sarandon, Sean Penn and the Castro-lover Danny Glover. Yup, the good ole boys of Hollywood are back and dumber than ever!

All of them are setting examples for the world to see. I mean, a whole day without food. My God! The agony caused by this deep sacrifice must be remembered for all time, don’t you think? Forget about Reagan’s face on Mount Rushmore; I say we nominate Sean Penn for President just to put his head atop that tribute to the great American presidents. And I know how much flying in private jets to their many mansions can really make them hungry…it’s just so hard to be rich.

The Destiny of History

On this day, July 4th, we celebrate the radical idea of freedom. We celebrate the day the world changed. We gather in remembrance of those who fought and died for the American spirit. The spirit that can never be matched; a spirit that gave life back to the world. We salute you.

--We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--

I leave you with words of wisdom that can guide us through our current struggles.

There are cases which cannot be overdone by language, and this is one. There are persons, too, who see not the full extent of the evil which threatens them; they solace themselves with hopes that the enemy, if he succeed, will be merciful. It is the madness of folly, to expect mercy from those who have refused to do justice; and even mercy, where conquest is the object, is only a trick of war; the cunning of the fox is as murderous as the violence of the wolf, and we ought to guard equally against both.

-Thomas Paine, December 23, 1776-

Liberal Fascism Drives Lieberman Away

We have all come to know how the left-wing of the Democratic Party operates. They threaten their own candidates in order to force them to adhere to their simpleminded agenda goals. Noncompliance of any sort, having to do with that agenda, results in large scale smear attacks and the propping up of robot candidates that can be controlled via political donations and internet assistance.

Due to these smears, the internet force of the Democrats have convinced its vast and easily mislead reader-base, to hate and even loath senator Joe Lieberman. Most people, both moderate Democrat and moderate Republican, view Lieberman as a fair and respected individual. However, what did him in with the so-called netroot campaigners like the Daily Kos, is his continued support for the Iraq war. When a candidate has a principled position, in this case removing a brutal dictator, and refuses to change that principled position despite political pressure, that makes you an enemy to them. Basically, you have to become an anti-war, Bush-hating nut job or be attacked and overthrown…that’s how they operate as clearly seen with Lieberman and even Hillary Clinton.

HARTFORD, Conn. -- Facing a stronger-than-expected Democratic primary challenge and sagging poll numbers because of his support of the Iraq war, Sen. Joe Lieberman said Monday he'll collect signatures to run as an unaffiliated candidate if he loses next month's primary.

Once a Democratic stalwart and the party's 2000 vice presidential nominee, Lieberman has fallen into disfavor from some Democrats for his support of the Iraq war and his perceived closeness to President Bush… Lieberman is being challenged by businessman Ned Lamont…Lamont has put more than $1.5 million of his own money into his campaign, calling Lieberman a Republican lapdog and accusing him of straying from his Democratic roots.

Notice the phrase “Republican lapdog” and “straying from his roots”. Those are key phrases that were given to Lamont, by liberal activist groups, for him to say. If you follow the Daily Kos and their undying
support for Lamont and their campaigning to get him elected, those words come as no surprise... And if you want a good laugh, check out how AmericaBlog covered the Lieberman announcement. It’s not WE abandoned Lieberman and forced him out because we’re crazed far-left zealots, but it’s the other way around: Lieberman Abandons Democrats. Of course, the Daily Kos posted a smear of Joe on their website. You can find that here.

Dems: Geneva Convention Not Important

In a new Opinion Dynamics poll, the majority of Americans feel that newspapers like the New York Times should be prosecuted for outing secret programs designed to catch terrorists. 66% of Americans feel news outlets, that make it easier for terrorists to operate by publishing secret programs, should face criminal charges. Only 27% of those polled felt the opposite way.

**Another interesting question had to with our treaty commitments and if we should honor those commitments if it meant releasing terrorists from Guantanamo Bay. Do you think the United States should honor its international treaty commitments to other countries, even if that means releasing dangerous enemy fighters from Guantanamo Bay?

54% of Americans said “no” we should not honor certain treaties if it meant releasing gitmo inmates. Surprisingly, the majority of registered Democrats agreed with that position. 47% of Dems said “no” we should not adhere to certain treaties in this case and 36% said “yes” we should honor those commitments even if it meant releasing terrorists.

Sometimes it’s hard to remember that moderate Democrats still exist; especially when the liberal internet-folk have hijacked their party. kudos...

However, the question I really loved was the one that asked respondents to weigh which side these leaks helped; the public or our enemy: The Bush administration asked the New York Times not to publish information about the secret government program tracking terrorist financing. The New York Times went ahead with the story and says it decided it was in the public interest to do so. By publishing the story, do you think the New York Times did more to help the American public or more to help terrorist groups like Al Qaeda?

60% of Americans felt that the New York Times aided Al Qaeda and only 26% felt the published leak helped Americans. It’s interesting because the Democrats polled were evenly split at 42% over which side the leak helped. Yet Independents and Republicans overwhelming saw the outing of this program as helping Al Qaeda.
