Another Dem Attacks the Military

Take DemiFlu.

The Nazi,
Pol Pot,
Forces of Stalin,
Cold-Blooded Killer way to wake up refreshed to slander the military and have a good morning medicine!

Charlie Rangel, the New York Democrat who has been pushing for a military draft the last few years, came out yesterday and gave us a little bit of the old fashion slurring we so often see from our new Democratic leaders. Rangel claimed that our brave patriots who join the armed forces have no will to fight and only join the army because they're too dumb to have “decent careers”.

I want to make it abundantly clear: if there’s anyone who believes that these youngsters want to fight, as the Pentagon and some generals have said, you can just forget about it. No young, bright individual wants to fight just because of a bonus and just because of educational benefits. And most all of them come from communities of very, very high unemployment. If a young fella has an option of having a decent career or joining the army to fight in Iraq, you can bet your life that he would not be in Iraq. -Video-

He wants to make it abundantly clear that his contempt for our fighting force can no longer go without mention. And he said if a ‘young fella has an option of having a decent career’, he would never join up to fight for his country. I suppose making millions of dollars in the NFL like Pat Tillman, is not a decent career?

Casino Royale

I saw Casino Royale the first night it opened and I was going to post a little review that night but never got around to it. I’m glad I put it off for a while because now I’ve had a couple of post-turkey lazy days to reflect on this film and what I view as the new trend in Hollywood.

First, the Movie! It wasn’t what I expected in that it was more of a dramatic thriller than the typical formulaic stride designed purely for popcorn entertainment. The beginning fight scenes of pre-007’s career were reminiscent of the great and realistic hand-to-hand combat of the Bourne Supremacy. Although, too much time is spent watching Bond play poker against La Chiffre (the super villain) amid the not-so-good storyline of stopping a terrorist by beating him in poker.

All in all, Daniel Craig gave us the great new Bond in a gritty film that can be viewed as on of the best, if not the best, movies in this storied franchise.

As for the new trend that I mentioned: It started with Batman Begins and moved to Casino Royale and will likely be seen more and more in the coming years. It’s the trend of going back to the dark basics after a long run in mediocrity. It’s a taking back of the story by the story-tellers from the hands of corporate giants who fear change and who will always sacrifice greatness for revenue. Many movie lovers have been waiting for this for a long time. We want movies and characters how they were meant to be… we don’t want market researched bullshit!

Annan: I Failed Saddam Hussein

I finally read the AP story on Kofi Annan’s comment about the United States being stuck in Iraq. I noticed the “Trapped in Iraq” headline from several news sources on my Google Homepage this morning but decided to skip it because it sounded like that typical bullshit. But since I had time this evening, I reluctantly gave the article a read. And it wasn’t the Trapped comment that I cared about but it was what he named as his biggest regret that caught my attention.

NewsMax) Annan, whose term ends as the head of the global body on Jan. 1, said the war in Iraq, and the failure of the U.N. Security Council to prevent the invasion by U.S.-led forces, was the biggest regret he had from his 10-year tenure. "I firmly believe that the war could have been avoided," he told reporters at the United Nations in Geneva. "The inspectors should have had a bit more time."

His failure to keep Saddam Hussein in power is his biggest regret? Wow! His biggest regret is not uh, let’s see, DARFUR! His biggest regret is not that he allowed Saddam Hussein to violate every Security Council resolution or the fact that the UN was at the helm of one of the biggest scandals in history? His biggest regret is not that the UN has consistently legitimized rogue nations like Iran or Cuba?

And he said that he firmly believes the war could have been avoided. All I have to say to that is: Yes Kofi... it could have been avoided if the UN enforced its own resolutions, wasn’t busy aiding Hussien’s regime with the Oil For Food Scandal, wasn't moving to lift sanctions, and was willing to stand united against such tyrants. -- But they sure did try, didn’t they? After all, avoiding action against dictatorial regimes is what the UN does best.

Who Gives a Shit about Keith Olbermann

A lot of liberal rejects think Olby is some kind of God (naturally, because he uses nonsensical attacks against George Bush)

A lot of big Republican bloggers like to spend time making fun of Olbermann and pointing out how retarded he is.

But frankly, I don’t give a shit about Keith Olbermann. And I’m getting tired of visiting certain big time Republican blogs and having to see some post about this jackass. Who the fuck cares about this guy?

Stop talking about Keith Olbermann- You fuckin’ Morons

Sometimes, I Almost Feel Sorry for Him

In the context of his failed presidential run, his botched joke/attack on the US military and the Dems recent big midterm election win, this photo speaks symbolic volumes.

Abramoff Implicates Dirty Harry

After Abramoff announced yesterday that he had contact with 6-8 seriously corrupt democrats he came out today and implicated ole culture of corruption himself, Harry Reid. (ABC News) As convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff reported to federal prison today, a source close to the investigation surrounding his activities told ABC News that Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) was one of the members of Congress Abramoff had allegedly implicated in his cooperation with federal prosecutors.

A source close to the investigation says Abramoff told prosecutors that more than $30,000 in campaign contributions to Reid from Abramoff's clients "were no accident and were in fact requested by Reid."

The Associated Press reported earlier this year that Reid wrote at least four letters helpful to the tribes that had contributed money to his campaign… The AP also reported that Abramoff's billing records showed extensive contact with Reid's office over a three-year period in which Reid collected more than $68,000 from Abramoff's firm, partners and clients.

This news comes shortly after the AP
caught Harry Reid making unethical transactions with some of his mafia connected friends in an effort to acquire $1.1 million in a shady property deal.

And I assume because so many Democrats called for Republicans who had connections with Jack Abramoff to resign, they will not hesitate to now call for the resignation of the soon to be majority leader. It’s not like the Democrats are hypocrites or anything… right?

Elton John: I Would Ban Religion

Elton John has publicly displayed his contempt for organized religion by calling for it to be banned and claiming it promotes hatred towards homosexuals. “I think religion has always tried to turn hatred towards gay people,” John said in the Observer newspaper's Music Monthly Magazine. "I would ban religion completely. Organized religion doesn't seem to work. It turns people into really hateful lemmings and it's not really compassionate." -Story-

Personally, I agree that religion has been used to create a growing hatred towards gays but I would not go as far as calling for it to be banned. Although, I happen to think that his call for the banning of religion was more of an exaggerated statement than an actual belief or want.

He also brought up an interesting point by mentioning the lack of leadership from the Church in regards to promoting understanding and compassion. There has been virtually no movement forward from top church officials on this issue. Like most things organized religion is full of contradictions and hypocrisy and unfortunately it uses fear-based indoctrination to create a sense of homophobia, among other things.

I’m not against individual people of faith but I do share Elton John’s contempt for the obvious wrongs of the dogmatic system. I’ve even lost some conservative readers because my views on gay marriage are based on the concept of a Republic (I’m for gay-marriage if voted in by a state’s populace but against court mandates making same sex marriage legal). And I’m almost sure I lost some readers because of my recent post: “To Hell with Organized Religion”.

But if they feel put off because of my opinions… Fuck ‘em! I hate religious nuts almost as much as I hate liberal nuts.

UK: Al Qaeda Seeks Nuclear Kit

LONDON (Reuters) - Al Qaeda is trying to acquire the technology that would enable it to use a nuclear device to attack Western targets including Britain, a senior British official said on Monday. "We know the aspiration is there. We know attempts to gather materials are there, we know that attempts to gather technology are there," the senior Foreign Office official told reporters.

The Foreign Office official, asked whether there was any doubt that Al Qaeda wants to gather nuclear material for use against Western targets, said: "No doubt at all."

There is no doubt that Al Qaeda wishes to acquire nuclear material in the hopes of using it against the United States and British targets. Interestingly, Osama Bin Laden in 2001 claimed that his terrorist network did have nuclear and chemical weapons. – These are the stakes; catastrophic attacks on US cities are the stakes we are faced with.

So it's important to remember that those among us, who want to “
kill” the patriot act, secure the rights of terrorists, who want to hinder the NSA, who are against coercive interrogation, and want us to withdraw from the battlefield, are all fighting against our national interest. And it just so happens that America just voted these types of people into leadership positions in both the House and the Senate.

We will be attacked with nuclear or chemical weapons in the near future and we do have to prevent terrorist-sponsors like Iran from building nuclear weapons by any means necessary. Unfortunately, for some, this threat won’t be understood until we are hit with unconventional weapons.

Was The Dems Win Good for the GOP?

I’ve been hearing the argument from different sources that the Democratic victory this midterm election was not necessarily a good thing for them. The point some politicians and political pundits are making is that because they took control of both the House and the Senate, they will make it easier for Republicans to win in ’08. - I don’t know if that is true or not, you tell me.

Conservative pundits, even before the election, were trying to spin a win for the Democrats as a not-so-bad outcome because it would help the GOP retain the White House and take back control of both houses. At the time I didn’t really buy that line of thinking; I just thought it was a partisan attempt to minimize the damage. But now I’m not so sure that this type of logic wasn’t just partisan politics.

Terry McAuliffe, the former Democratic Chairman, made an interesting observation, as reported by the Guardian, which got me thinking about the consequences of his party controlling half the power in Washington. He said, “The voters have ‘reluctantly given us the keys,’ adding that the Democrats would have to prove themselves very quickly. It is easier said than done.”

Honestly, the democrats are in a very tough position. They basically have two years to prove worthy of the American people, who despite the failures in Iraq, only 'reluctantly' gave the Democrats some control. The problem for them is that after the next two years they can no longer be solely dependent on blaming republicans for everything. And the fact is the American people don’t want an overall change in foreign policy. They voted because of their discontent with the Iraq war and basically decided to punish the GOP for its poor performance.

***You see, Dems view the Iraq situation, be it right or wrong, as a sinking ship. Well, in their Armani suits and with their celebratory bubbly, they just boarded the Titanic with the rest of us. And in 2008 they will be shit out of luck. Their blame-bush lifeboat will have sailed and they will have no more excuses. Underneath all of the rhetoric they still voted for this war, they still pushed this war, they still have no reasonable alternative in this war and in two years, as the leftist David Corn put it, they will no longer be among the rebels but will be part of the Empire.

US 'Suburbs More Violent Than Iraq'

Are some urban areas of the United States more dangerous than Iraq? According to Australian filmmaker George Gittoes, they are. More fighting goes on in parts of suburban US than Iraq, according to an Australian filmmaker who has just finished a documentary set in Miami. Gittoes' latest feature contrasts life for a family living in the blue-collar community of Brown Sub, Miami, with ongoing fighting in Iraq. "It is much worse in Miami than it is in Baghdad," he said. "Even left-wing Americans...don't want to recognise the mess they've got in their own backyard.” -Story-

The fact is, from an American perspective, some states in this country are far more dangerous than Iraq. I outlined this in June when I did an article called “
We should Pull out of America”. It sarcastically pointed out that the logic of withdrawing from Iraq because troops are dying was somewhat hypocritical to use because more Americans were murdered in California in just two years than in the entire war.

-Number of US Troops killed in Iraq (a war zone): 2,800
-Number of Americans murdered in California alone from 2003 to 2005: 7,302
-Violent Crimes reported in California in the past 3 years: 4,227,716
-Number of Americans murdered in 2005: 17,000

So should we pull out of Iraq because its dangerous and people are being killed? -- I don’t know, should we pull out of violent US neighborhoods because more Americans are being killed there than in Iraq? The point is that there are dangerous places all over the world including in our own cities (My brother was shot and was nearly murdered in front of his home… by an illegal alien no less). It doesn’t mean that we run and hide or pull out of a war because it’s bloody and disheartening. Iraq, despite its countless failures, can still be a stable and more prosperous country.

Democrats Take Control; Allahu Akbar!

Just Days After leading terrorists endorsed the Democratic Party; They took control of the House and maybe the Senate

-But will I claim they cheated? -- No. I’m not a Democrat; that's what they do
-Will I call Nancy Pelosi THEIR Speaker instead of OUR Speaker? -- No. I’m not a Democrat
-Will I whine and cry because the American people voted for something I dislike? -- No. I’m not a Democrat.
-Will I work to undermine our national interests because I happen to carry disdain for liberal members of Congress? -- No. I’m not a Democrat

I do however, expect them to grow up and behave responsibly. Because now that they have regained some power they can focus less on hurting our country for political gain and more on developing alternative ideas of governance.

And because I’m not like a hate-filled liberal I can sincerely say: Congratulations to the Democratic Party for a hard fought campaign and I can understand the frustration the American people have had with the way things have been handled.

Gears of War

Every so often a commercial comes along that is simply perfect

And I find it kind of funny,
I find it kind of sad,
The dreams in which I'm dying, are the best I've ever had

Abu Ghraib to Hit the Big Screen

Kerry Lover and MoveOn Contributor Set to Direct Lefty Porn
A new movie about the Abu Ghraib ‘scandal’ that is meant to “examine” the abuse and so-called torture of suspected terrorist inmates, is in development by Sony Pictures and is being directed by the Oscar winning filmmaker, Errol Morris. Morris’s last documentary, “The Fog of War” won an academy award in 2003; it occasionally airs on HBO if you care to watch some of his previous work to judge his perception of world events. -

Films of this nature can be skewed in many different ways but it can be expected that this documentary will not focus on the fact that abuse such as the type reported is relatively non existent and not reflective of the military as a whole, but will likely be a platform of sympathy for our enemies and a not-so-ambiguous condemnation of the current administration. Also, it will likely not examine the reported success of some of the interrogation techniques implemented at Abu Ghraib; techniques that have saved thousands of lives on the battlefield and in America.

Given that likelihood I felt it necessary to post something about the upcoming film. With all of the narratives of the war on terror, it’s interesting in this day and age, that an isolated and really over hyped incident like the abuse scandal can take precedent over stories of heroism or the political process of Iraq. Or for that matter, the real torture Saddam Hussein inflicted on his people inside this particular prison.

And it’s interesting that independent producers and directors like Raphael Shore and Wayne Kopping are creating great documentaries like “
Obsession”, which focuses on the real and growing threat of radical Islam, but are getting virtually no press. I guess the question I’m heading towards is: Why? There is no real reason to create a film based on a situation that slandered the military and aided our enemies… unless of course the reason is to further alienate the US forces in Iraq and bring about a greater feeling of anti-American sentiment.

Praise Allah if the Dems Win

News Alert

Several key terrorist leaders spoke with World Net Daily and gave a ringing endorsement of America’s very own, Democratic Party. It seems that the opposition has gained some admirers for their defeatist goals in regards to Iraq and the overall war on terror. And as of now, the DNC has ‘no comment’ on their new supporters. - Democrats: 'No comment' on terrorists' endorsement-

"Of course Americans should vote Democrat," Jihad Jaara, a senior member of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terror group, told WND. "This is why American Muslims will support the Democrats, because there is an atmosphere in America that encourages those who want to withdraw from Iraq…
Jaara and others told WND that they believe if the Democrats come into power because of the party's position on withdrawing from Iraq, that ensures victory for the worldwide Islamic resistance.

Muhammad Saadi, a senior leader of Islamic Jihad in the northern West Bank town of Jenin, said the Democrats' talk of withdrawal from Iraq makes him feel "proud." -- "As Arabs and Muslims we feel proud of this talk," he told WND. "Very proud from the great successes of the Iraqi resistance. This success that brought the big superpower of the world to discuss a possible withdrawal."

Abu Ayman, an Islamic Jihad leader in Jenin, said he is "emboldened" by those in America who compare the war in Iraq to Vietnam.

It comes as no surprise that our enemies want the democrats to win the upcoming November election and more importantly the presidential election of 2008. We have been pointing out that they have been playing into the hands of Al Qaeda and others for years now. -- Europe believes that George Bush is more of a threat than Kim Jong-Il and leading terrorists endorse the Democratic Party… can it be any clearer?

Bush Biggest Threat to World Peace?

In a new opinion study of Britain conducted by the newspaper “The Guardian”, President Bush is ranked as the biggest threat to world peace over tyrants such as Kim Jong-Il of North Korea and crazy man Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of the terrorist-state Iran. I don’t necessarily doubt the numbers; hence the subtitle of my blog, but it goes to show you how effective an anti-American sentiment mixed with skewed reporting can be on a weak minded European.

So who is actually the bigger or biggest threat to world peace? Well, of course, that depends on what your definition of “world peace” is:

If world peace to you is doing nothing relevant as rogue regimes like North Korea commit genocide on its own people; placing many innocent victims in torture camps and starving the rest of the population to death while building and testing weapons of mass destruction, then yes: George Bush might be considered a bigger threat.

However, if you subscribe to the notion that tyrants who slaughter their own people, support terrorism, threaten allies, and are building nuclear weapons can in no way be considered “peace”, then you understand that it’s not George Bush that is the biggest threat but it’s people like Kim Jong-Il and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Many people fit in the “
Pacifism is Objectively Pro-Fascist” category. This was recently seen with Hans Blix whose philosophy basically is: It’s better to be dying brutally in acid baths, torture chambers and by chemical weapons under Saddam Hussein than it is dying in a struggle to establish a democratic and a more free country… especially if that struggle is led by the United States.

Shock: Dean Bashes Bush in Speech

Okay, enough of John Kerry… What other idiot can we talk about? Hey, just in time: It's Howard Dean giving us some of his patented bullshit during a speech last night in which he compared President Bush to former President Nixon. -Story-

The “Scream Machine” led off with a little Bush-Bashing: "I think George Bush is the most incompetent president we've had in our lifetime. I mean, nobody would accuse President Nixon of being incompetent." -- But given that Dean is inarguably a complete jackass; I would have to say that calling him the most incompetent President ever, is a compliment. Since I’m sure the good doctor considers himself to be competent, we can logically assume that his competent-meter is shot to hell.

After the bash fest, the Vermont Democrat tried some of the, “Bush administration is spying on little old ladies because they hate your civil rights” crap that seems only to work on the mentally challenged liberal voter base: They're both [Bush/Cheney and Nixon/Agnew] using the IRS for political purposes. They're both spying on people they don't like and not just terrorists, but also American citizens. Neither one of them particularly believes in judicial rights. They've both been dishonest with the American people."

It's yet another slew of overused mischaracterizations that when coupled with the statement, they have been dishonest with the American people, makes the hypocrisy-hairs on the back of my neck go woo-woo-woo.

And here I thought the Dems had finally muzzled Dr. Dean. I wonder what it feels like to be a moderate Democrat and know that your party has turned into one of the most hilariously pathetic and reflexively retarded political sideshows in the history of American offense. But you can always show your discontent by sending your so-called leaders a message and support local Republicans this week.
