Rose Parade Has Thorns

Cindy Sheehan is coming to Pasadena, California. She will be demonstrating along with other anti-war and pro-impeachment nut cases that are drawn to events such as the Tournament of Roses Parade.

Sheehan, who is campaigning for Congress against Nancy Pelosi, is like a sore that never heals. Determined to contaminate any celebration with their minority psychotic opinions, she and her minions continue to plague society. At least now, she is also plaguing Nancy Pelosi.

What Really Happened?

An interesting article appeared in the New York Sun regarding the assassination of Benazir Bhutto.

It says the attack bore the hallmarks of a sophisticated military operation. It reports that Bhutto's armored limousine was shot by multiple snipers whose armor-piercing bullets penetrated the vehicle, hitting the former premier five times in the head, chest, and neck. Two of the snipers then detonated themselves shortly after the shooting.

Meanwhile, a
separate attack was thwarted at the local hospital where Bhutto possibly would have been revived had she survived the initial shooting.

Read the entire article for some intriguing speculation because the official Pakistani explanation is certainly hard to accept.

Scientists Scared To Study Border

Here's a report on how scientists are abandoning their projects on the Arizona-Mexico border because of the drug smugglers. Crackdowns on smugglers by the Mexican military, increased vigilance in the Caribbean Sea, new border fences, air patrols, a buildup of U.S. Border Patrol agents and a turf war between cartels all have contributed to smuggling in more remote areas.

According to the article, Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument stopped granting most new research permits in January because of increasing smuggling activity. Scientists must sign a statement acknowledging that the National Park Service cannot guarantee their safety from "potentially dangerous persons entering the park from Mexico."

It is depressing that our government will not protect our land and its citizens and openly acknowledges that fact. We can send American soldiers to do peacekeeping in foreign lands, but refuse to allow them to defend and protect their own nation's borders. What is wrong with this picture?

Benazir Bhutto Assassinated

This from FOXNews: Pakistani opposition leader Benazir Bhutto was assassinated Thursday, shot in the neck and chest at a campaign rally before a homicide bomber blew himself up, killing 20 others.

Get ready for the rioting and more violence.

Forget The Eye, Read The Lips

Thanks to Putin, Russia has reverted back to the days of the evil empire. Remember when our president remarked about Putin, "I looked the man in the eye. I found him to be very straightforward and trustworthy."

He's so trustworthy that he's now selling a sophisticated air defense system to Iran. He's so straightforward that his administration denied the rumors that this sale would take place.

Our president is a very poor judge of people. The growing military cooperation between Russia and Iran is a serious matter and pretending that Russia is no longer an enemy is a grave mistake. We need leaders who will take the threats of Russia, China, the Marxists of South America and the Islamomaniacs seriously.

We must choose well in 2008 or we may not be choosing at all by 2012.

Potential Targets

Sports Illustrated has a somber piece about how fans look like potential victims of terrorism to Jim McGee, former FBI agent turned college instructor. The players are also potential targets and security gaps are easy to find.

Many believe it's only a matter of time before another domestic or international terrorist attack targets a sports event.

Bill Flynn, head of Homeland Security's protective security coordination division, said stadiums and arenas are "a concern, something that we want to pay attention to. Why? Because we've seen attacks overseas in resorts, hotels and arenas, so obviously while al-Qaida and the terrorists have attempted to hit hard targets like refineries, soft targets and commercial facilities become more of a target of opportunity."

There will be another terrorist attack, it's only a matter of where and when.

Merry Christmas To All

Attrition Working In Arizona

The Tucson Citizen reports that the defeat of shamnesty (they call it comprehensive immigration reform) , law enforcement crackdowns, Arizona's new employer-sanctions law and a sluggish economy (meaning their are fewer jobs for Americans) have have created a climate illegal invaders no longer find hospitable. Many are leaving the state and the country.

So, attrition is working and we can solve the problem of lawbreakers taking up residence at will in our country. Wow, isn't it amazing what can happen when we follow the law. Once the sanctions law takes effect in January, even more illegals are expected to leave.

Rosendo Hernandez, president of the advocacy group Immigrants Without Borders said, "If people can't find work, they won't be able to pay their bills, so they will leave."

"That is the whole purpose of the (sanctions) law," said state Rep. John Kavanagh, R-Fountain Hills, "to not only stop people from coming, but to have these who are here illegally go back to whence they came. They shouldn't be here."

Amen, Congressman, amen!

Senate Sabotages Fence

Our sell out America Senate passed a spending bill Tuesday evening that strips one layer off the 700 miles of double-border fence that was originally mandated by the Secure Fence Act.

Under this new spending bill, the barrier erected along the Mexican border will be only a single line of fencing, rather than the double line of fences with a patrol road running between them, such as the barrier that has already been constructed in the San Diego area.

Cybercast News Service asked senators if they supported this reduction of the fence, but many seemed unaware of the reduction. Sen. Sam Brownback (R-Kan.) flatly declared the change was "unacceptable." Later that evening, Brownback voted in favor of the bill.Sen. Russell Feingold (D-Wis.) said he had not considered the issue. "I have not even thought about that. I will have to think about that." He voted against it. Sen. Gordon Smith(R-Ore.) said he was unaware of the proposal and that he does not support such a reduction. "I am for whatever amount of fence is necessary to secure our border. My preference is enough fence to make it work. I believe that's a double fence." He voted for the bill.

The truth is most of our senators are voting on bills they haven't looked at or don't completely understand. In addition, there is no desire on the part of most of them to secure and defend our borders and the American people. Encouraged by the president to turn a blind eye to the invasion of illegals they are knowingly complicit in the selling out of America.

The Clinton Fantasy

Bill Clinton's arrogance knows no bounds. What was he thinking when he said that Hillary would send him and Bush senior abroad to assure other nations that “America is open for business and cooperation again?” Does he believe his own nonsense so deeply that he thinks George H.W.Bush would through his own son under a bus just to make the Clintons look good?

In a statement sent to CNN Tuesday afternoon, former President Bush’s chief of staff Jean Becker said that he “wholeheartedly supports the President of the United States, including his foreign policy. He has never discussed an ‘around-the-world-mission’ with either former President Bill Clinton or Sen. Clinton, nor does he think such a mission is warranted since he is proud of the role America continues to play around the world as the beacon of hope for freedom and democracy.

“President Bush is excited about several of the excellent Republican candidates running for president, and looks forward to discussing their candidacy once the Republican nominee is determined.”

Clinton wants back in the White House so badly he is grasping at straws. Determined to mend his legacy of lies, adultery, perjury etc, he will do and say anything that might get Hillary nominated. Imagine if she does run and the race looks close. Bill will try to resell his soul to the devil to get her elected. You can't buy entertainment like this.

Unruly Neighbor

Mexico is complaining again. The problem this time is at the border near Tijuana. It seems Mexico thinks it's perfectly ok for its smugglers and gangsters to hurl rocks, bricks and bottles at American citizens and law enforcement. Sometimes they use ball bearings and slingshots.

The Border Patrol has responded with tear gas or pepper spray. This is because when Mexican authorities are contacted they take hours to respond if they come at all. They're probably waiting for their customary bribe.

Now, Mexico's acting consul general in San Diego, Ricardo Pineda, has the gall to insist that U.S. authorities stop firing onto Mexican soil. He should be thankful we're not using live rounds. Why do we allow these assaults on our nation to continue?

Boycott Bustamante

Watch out GOP! Jorge Bustamante, the UN's Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights of Migrants and friend of the ACLU is calling on Mexicans to boycott companies that donate to Republican candidates.

Why is another Mexican national interfering in the internal affairs of the American government? If he's so concerned about the rights of Mexicans, let him petition his own government to provide jobs, health care, education etc. etc. etc. He and the other Mexican fat cats can help by paying a larger portion of their wealth in taxes instead of wallowing in their greed and pushing their poor and homeless northbound.

This guy even has to come here to work as a professor at Notre Dame. You can see how ungrateful he is for the opportunity.

Lizzy In Another Tizzy

Elizabeth Edwards frightens easily. Her biggest fear is rabid Republicans. Even though she never met her neighbor, Monty Johnson, she was scared of him and said, "I wouldn't be nice to him anyway."

Monty said of John Edwards,
"I thought he was supposed to be for the poor people, but does he ever socialize with any poor people? He doesn't speak to me." Of course not, Monty, John is only interested in the politics of poverty, he doesn't want to get any on himself or muss that expensive hairstyle.

Meanwhile, Lizzy is frightened again by Republican demons.
"Republicans should scare us in a lot of ways," Edwards said as she was introducing her husband at a town hall in Dubuque, Iowa. Regarding Mike Huckabee, she noted he "doesn’t believe in evolution and has some nutty views about what it is we should do about ending violence in our inner city." She then went on to expound on her fear of the evil Karl Rove and "swift boating."

She summed up her ode to paranoia by asking us to believe that her husband John could take on the Republican attack machine. "We have to have a candidate who stands up, can take the punches and give it back to them."

If the Republican attack machine wants to have at John, they will have to look behind Lizzy's skirts.

Chinese Checkers

A Russsian paper has reported that China will export 24 J-10A fighters to Iran beginning in 2008. The J-10 is an air superiority fighter with capabilities and performance that resemble closer to those of F-15 and F-16 aircraft.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry has denied reports of the sale, calling them "irresponsible."

Considering China's miltary agenda however, the sale does not seem out of the question. Their goal seems to be stepping up threats to the US from Latin America, the Middle East and Asia.

Just last week, the chief of the US naval operations expressed concern about competition from China's ship building sector.

"The fact that our shipbuilding capacity and industry is not as competitive as other builders around the world is cause for concern," Admiral Gary Roughead told the House of Representatives Armed Services Committee.

Regarding China, he said: "They are very competitive on the world market. There is no question that their ship building capability is increasing rapidly."

China is turning out 5,000 commercial ships a year, against 300 by the United States, and an average of three submarines a year, to the United States' one.

China is also producing nearly five times as much steel as the United States.

We are losing our superiority and our government seems not to care.

Donkey Donnybrook

The Washington Post says the Democrats are blaming each other. If that's true the Donks finally got it right. Reid, Pelosi and the likes of Charlie Rangel and Barney Frank seem to be getting fed up with their partners in crime.

Isn't it amazing how the Democrats promised so much and delivered nothing. What happened to the full work week? What happened to honest and open government? Vows made by those devoted to treachery are best not kept anyway. These plotters and saboteurs of the left have no good intentions and the welfare of the Republic is not one of their priorities.

So, let them fight amongst themselves and let evil destroy itself from within.

Sharpton's Sharp Practices Investigated

From the New York Daily News comes word that the Feds have subpoenaed financial records and employees. They are demanding Al's financial records since 2001.

The FBI and IRS are investigating whether Sharpton improperly misstated the amount of money he raised during his 2004 White House run to illegally obtain federal matching funds, a source familiar with the probe said.

Sharpton, although forced to return $100,000 in matching taxpayer funds after an investigation two years ago, denied any wrongdoing at the time.

The feds may also looking into allegations of tax fraud, including whether Sharpton commingled funds from his nonprofit National Action Network with several of his for-profit ventures.

Al's lawyer , Michael Hardy, called it a federal fishing expedition. "I can't think of a time when the Rev. Sharpton wasn't under investigation," he said.

Gee, I wonder why.

Terrorist Fed Flicks

FOXNews reports that federal authorities say one of the men accused of planning an attack on soldiers at the Fort Dix army base gave another inmate in a federal detention center an Al Qaeda recruitment video and another wrote a note referring to the fight "we weren't able to finish."

How is it possible that these animals have sufficient freedom to pass videos to each other, let alone notes? If we are going to be stupid enough to jail these swine instead of standing them before a firing squad then we should make damn sure they have no ability to communicate with each other.

These pigs of the prophet say that the detention center has not allowed them adequate access to evidence in the case against them as they prepare for trial. So they have asked a judge to either allow them to be free on bail or come up with alternate arrangements to allow them to review materials for the trial, which is scheduled to begin March 24.

Allowing this scum to use our laws to subvert justice is bad enough, but if there is a judge so stupid as to set them free on bail then he should be hanged along with them.

China To Lease Air Base In Ecuador

Here's a thought to keep you awake at night. The US has an air base in Ecuador and the lease is up in 2009. The lease will not be renewed. Instead, the lease will be offered to China. According to Ecuador's president, Rafael Correra, this will be the "doorway" for China's entry into Latin America.

How convenient, then China can simply invade us through our open border that will still not be walled by 2009. Every day, in every way our government continues to fail in its duty to defend us.

What's Beneath The Surface?

Another tunnel for Mexican smugglers has been discovered by the Border Patrol in Tecate, California. An agent on routine patrol discovered the tunnel when his drug-sniffing dog reacted to the smell of marijuana several hundred feet away.

A news article states that few people have been prosecuted for activities related to the construction of these tunnels. However, a federal law enacted this year makes it a felony to design or build one, or to participate in smuggling involving it.

Although the primary purpose of these tunnels appears to be drug smuggling, it would be just as easy to use them to bring people and/or weapons into the US. Once again, the government shows itself to be lax and apathetic about the security of American citizens.

The Penn Is Crazier Than The Kucinich

The race for the Democrat presidential nomination is over. Sean Penn has endorsed Dennis Kucinich for president. Appropriately it was announced at San Francisco State University.

It is, at the very least, interesting to watch the looney birds begin to flock together. If you can stand the insane rantings of a madman run amok, go here to the full text of Penn's endorsement speech.

Kucinich and Penn are both big supporters of Hugo Chavez, the paranoid dictator of Venezuela. Kucinich wants Vice President Cheney impeached while Penn seems to be opting for a firing squad, an event in which he would like to include Bush, Rumsfeld and Rice.

Yes, the kooks for Kucinich are gathering and if nothing else, they are the comic relief in the campaign .

Why The Terrorists Must Die

Here's an interesting article about our Shia pals. I'll give you an excerpt and you can read the rest for yourselves.

On her first day at Basra University this year a man came up to Zeena, a 21-year-old Christian woman, and three other Christian girls and ordered them to cover their heads with a hijab, or Islamic headscarf.

“We didn't listen to him, and thought he might just be some extremist student representing only himself,” she said. The next day Zeena and two of her friends returned to class with uncovered heads.

This time a man in the black clothes of the Shia militia stopped them at the entrance and took them aside. “He said, 'We asked you yesterday to wear a hijab, so why are you and your friends not covering your hair?'. He was talking very aggressively and I was scared,” Zeena recalled.

The girls explained that they were Christians and that their faith did not call for headscarves. “He said: 'Outside this university you are Christian and can do what you want; inside you are not. Next time I want to see you wearing a hijab or I swear to God the three of you will be killed immediately',” Zeena recalled. Terrified, the girls ran home. They now wear the headscarf all the time.

Another example of why this terrorist scum must be hunted down and disposed of as quickly as possible. Like killing roaches that have infested any dwelling, it won't be easy, but it is absolutely necessary.

Where Are The Missing Iraqis?

The Washington Times reports that nearly a dozen Iraqi military and law-enforcement officials brought to the U.S. as part of special intelligence and training programs have run away and are seeking asylum in this country or disappeared altogether.

Representative Lamar Smith of Texas, ranking Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, says the national security implications are serious and the Bush administration must do more to ensure that those brought to the U.S. are properly accounted for. Really? Does he expect Bush to move on that with the same sense of urgency he has displayed securing our borders?

Smith has not received answers to questions he sent to Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff in December 2006. He asked who the Iraqi military and law-enforcement officials are, whether an investigation was being conducted and how many Iraqi nationals have fled from military installations in the U.S. So, a year after asking what seems to be a very straight forward and logical question, he is still waiting for a reply. Chertoff obviously seems to think he isn't accountable to the American people or he doesn't know the answers.

The documented failings of the government to control who enters this nation has to make you wonder how many instances there are that we are unaware of. No one trustworthy or even capable seems to be in charge.

What You Can Do, If You Try

Reluctantly or not, it looks like the government may finally be enforcing our laws. According to this article, Federal agents who track down fugitives on immigration charges arrested more than 30,000 people nationally in fiscal year 2007, nearly double the previous year's total.

Agents focused on people who hadn't appeared for immigration hearings, or who stayed in the country after being ordered to leave by an immigration judge.

They also prioritized cases, looking for those who had criminal records or were considered a threat to national security.

There were more than 30,408 arrests nationally in fiscal 2007, which ended Sept. 30, compared to 15,462 last year, ICE said.

ICE officials also said the backlog of fugitives was down by 38,000 to 595,000 for the new fiscal year.

Enforcing the law, what a concept!

Phoenix Policy Change

The mayor of Phoenix said on Monday that he no longer backed a Police Department order barring officers from routinely asking the immigration status of people it arrested and announced a panel to study a policy change. This comes after the shooting death two months ago of a police officer, Nick Erfle, by an illegal immigrant.

Law enforcement should be working together to clean up the mess politicians have imposed upon us. If we cannot count on those who represent us and those who are sworn to protect us, perhaps it is time for another revolution.

The Race Tightens

The Clinton camp must be concerned. Several Democrats up for election have distanced themselves from what could turn out to be reverse coattail syndrome. Mostly such feelings are kept quiet for fear of retribution from the Clinton machine.

Meanwhile Obama is proving to be a stronger candidate then anticipated. Now, Oprah has joined him and rallies are selling out.

Then, there are the campaign ads against Hillary that are coming from the "liberal activist" groups, one of which, Democratic Courage, has accused Clinton of making policy decisions on the basis of polls, not convictions. Their ad should launch today.

Hillary may have bitten off more than her canines can handle this time.

New Recruits For Terror

As if there isn't enough to worry about, the New York Daily News reports that the latest group of Al Qaeda recruits contains with white, Anglo-featured converts from Europe. These Europeans have been seen in Pakistan.

"Al Qaeda is attempting to recruit 'Western' individuals to better blend into European and American societies," a senior military officer who monitors secret reports on the region said. "It's a continuing concern for the intelligence community."

According to the article, the danger is that they may blend in back home or take advantage of the visa-waiver program the U.S. shares with its European allies that eliminates a key layer of scrutiny for travelers. The travel loophole allows 15 million people to enter the U.S. from 18 European countries without visas, including Britain, France, Germany and Norway.

All this means is we must be more wary and vigilant than ever and all precautions must be taken at all times. Those who complain about being inconvenienced should be doubly scrutinized.

More Peace And Tolerance

The religion of peace and tolerance has moved from cartoons, to piglet, to the pope, to the Teddy Bear. In Sudan, Gillian Gibbons was convicted of insulting Islam because she named a Teddy Bear Mohammed.

Following prayer meetings, Sudanese savages surged into the streets, thousands strong, demanding Gibbon's execution by firing squad. They carried swords, axes, clubs and knives. Pictures of Gillian were burned as crazy clerics in pick-up trucks chanted, “No one lives who insults the prophet.” I guess he's complimented by the violens carried out in his name.

A Sword-waving fanatic Yassin Mubarak raged: “What she did requires her life to be taken.” Islamic cleric Abdul-Jalil Nazeer al-Karouri ranted: “Imprisoning this lady does not satisfy the thirst of Muslims in Sudan.” That would be their thirst for murder and the blood of innocents.

Caught In Their Own Trap?

Listening to the braying Donks, Murtha being one of the main asses, you can tell their disappointment that the tide of the war in Iraq has turned. Now, they are saying the surge is working, but we need to retreat anyway. Hoping to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, Murtha said, “The fact remains that the war in Iraq cannot be won militarily, and that we must begin an orderly redeployment of U.S. forces from Iraq as soon as practicable.”

It seems the voters are showing much less interest in the war and if it can't be a political weapon for them, the Donks just want it to go away. After all, if the war is successful that means they've been wrong all along and then people might see them for the seditious simpletons they truly are. There are few things more enjoyable then watching liberals caught in snares of their own making. Stay tuned.
