Isn't it interesting that the Iraqi people celebrate the demise of one mad mass murderer by cheering another.
CNN says, that as the noose was tightened around Hussein's neck, one of the executioners yelled "long live Muqtada al-Sadr," referring to the Shiite religious leader.
Sadr and his islamomaniacs have attacked US troops and he is wanted in the death of Abdel Majid Al-Khoei, a pro-American cleric who was murdered in April of 2003. His fanatical followers are also thought to be responsible for the death of another cleric and political leader, Ayatollah Mohammed Bakir al-Hakim, murdered in September of 2003.
Just like Saddam, Sadr likes to murder his rivals. They may need a winch and a hoist to get his immenseness on the gallows, but it will be just as well deserved as the execution of Hussein.

The middle class is disappearing, the government is overspending, there is an adverse balance of trade, a segment of the population is subsisting on starvation wages because of having to compete with the wages of illegals and now the military will be populated with an increased amount of foreigners. How long before the barbarians penetrate the gates? Like Rome, America is about to fall.

If the Senate immigration bill had become law, illegal aliens, who broke our laws, would have been able to avail themselves of free legal assistance and a path to citizenship, all paid for by American taxpayers. Think it won't happen? With the new Donks teaming up with the RINOs left in Congress, just wait and see your money used to reward those who sneer at our laws, language, customs and country. November 7th, 2006, another date that will live in infamy.

This is the man that Jimmy Carter admired so much he said of him, "He was the father of the modern Palestinian nationalist movement. A powerful human symbol and forceful advocate, Palestinians united behind him in their pursuit of a homeland."
He also eulogized that Arafat provided "indispensable leadership to a revolutionary movement" and played a key role in forging a peace agreement with Israel in 1993, he was excluded from negotiations in recent years.
"My hope is that an emerging Palestinian leadership can benefit from Arafat's experiences, be welcomed to the peace process by (Israeli) Prime Minister (Ariel) Sharon and (US) President (George W.) Bush, and be successful in helping to forge a Palestinian state living in harmony with their Israeli neighbors," Carter said.Sure, Jimmy, and the elections in Venezuela were a wonderful example of democracy which America should emulate. How long must we suffer this foolish old windbag and his lusting after leftist lunatics like Arafat, Castro and Chavez?

Illegals will not have to leave the country and the funds for the fence will be withheld thus assuring that the supply of criminal invaders will remain uninterrupted.
The article makes it abundantly clear that our politicians are unconcerned about the nation and are driven only by self-serving motives. What are their reservations about such a bill? "The House Democrats are concerned about protecting newly elected moderate and conservative Democrats, some of whom had campaigned against legalizing illegal immigrants,"states the Times. There is no mention about concern for protecting the integrity and sovereignty of these United States.

The American military is holding at least four Iranians in Iraq. According to the administration among them are Iranian senior military officials. They were apprehended in raids aimed at those suspected of attacking Iraqi security forces.
Two Iranian diplomats were also detained, but were turned over to the Iraqi authorities and released.
There is a lot more going on here. The Iranians are in this bloodbath up to their eyeballs and this may be the evidence with which to confront their doomsday demagogue.

They called it "racial profiling" of Hispanics, because many of the 1,300 illegals apprehended in the December 12th raids at meatpacking plants were from latin America. I guess there wasn't enough European, African and Asian representation to meet the diversity requirements.
"We are demanding an end to these immigration raids, where they are targeting brown faces. That is major, major racial profiling, and that cannot be tolerated," said Rosa Rosales, president of the League of United Latin American Citizens, at a news conference.
"This unfortunately reminds me of when Hitler began rounding up the Jews for no reason and locking them up," Democratic Party activist Carla Vela said. "Now they're coming for the Latinos, who will they come for next?" Hopefully, some mental health professionals will come for you, Carla, since you obviously need to be restrained until your psychotic episodes are eliminated.
This group includes LULAC, the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund, the Hispanic National Bar Association, and the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials. What a pack of self serving morons.

From ABC comes word that Al Qaeda has sent a message to leaders of the Democrat party that credit for the defeat of congressional Republicans belongs to the terrorists.
In a portion of the tape from al Qaeda No. 2 man, Ayman al Zawahri he has two messages for American Democrats.
"The first is that you aren't the ones who won the midterm elections, nor are the Republicans the ones who lost. Rather, the Mujahideen -- the Muslim Ummah's vanguard in Afghanistan and Iraq -- are the ones who won, and the American forces and their Crusader allies are the ones who lost," Zawahri said.
He calls on the Democrats to negotiate with him and Osama bin Laden, not others in the Islamic world who he says cannot help.
"And if you don't refrain from the foolish American policy of backing Israel, occupying the lands of Islam and stealing the treasures of the Muslims, then await the same fate," he warned.
The terrorists are planning on riding their newly acquired beasts of burden to victory. That braying you will be hearing from the halls of Congress come January heralds the beginning of their domination of America courtesy of the Dhimmicrats.

In typical liberal fashion he lied to reporters saying that federal immigration authorities do not want state troopers to be involved in immigration enforcement. "I also understand, by the way, that INS isn't interested in sharing their enforcement powers," he stated.
But, when a federal immigration official said that ICE backed the agreement, an aide to the future governor had to say, "The governor-elect misspoke when he referenced the INS." How vague and meaningless is that? Do they mean he misspoke because he doesn't know the INS is now called ICE? Or were they referring to his outright lie about the feds not backing the agreement?
Yes, Deval is another fine addition to the Donks new era of open, honest and ethical government. I'm sure they're grooming him for Congress.

After completing his morning route on Thursday, Kenneth Mott said his supervisors called and demanded that he take off his Santa hat.
Mott said he was told that a parent of a child complained to the district about his headgear, saying that their child doesn't believe in Santa Claus and therefore was bothered by the hat. If that's true then let the little looney be driven to school by the parental unit(s) that encourage such antisocial behavior and allow the rest of the children to enjoy themselves.
"I said, 'What, are you kidding me?,'" Mott recalled. "I thought it was a big joke."
He resolved to keep his hat on that afternoon.
"Nobody is going to tell me what I can do and can't do," said Mott, who added that he doesn't pretend to be Santa Claus while driving, nor does he play Christmas carols or decorate his bus. "This is America. I'm not hurting anybody." Amen, Mr. Mott, amen!
It seems the dispute turns out to be a big misunderstanding, as is always the excuse when the secularist politically correct cretins get caught with their legal pants down. Those who tried to intimidate Mr. Mott will escape unscathed and try to ruin someone else's good time down the road.

Here's a shock, France is retreating again. She plans to withdraw her 200 special forces troops from Afghanistan. This decision to pull the troops would, of course, have nothing to do with the recent increased Taliban strength and engagement. Reportedly, France has balked at sending its 1,100 member NATO contingent outside the relatively safe Afghan capital, Kabul. "There is a general reorganization of our (troops)," Defense Minister Michele Alliot-Marie said during a visit to Afghanistan. I'll bet, Michele, a reorganization others call retreat.
Among the planned changes is a "withdrawal of special forces from Jalalabad in the coming weeks," she said. Despite the pullout, Alliot-Marie said that France intends to maintain its air power "which has backed up coalition forces numerous times" and is adding two helicopters in the advanced zone between Jalalabad, in the southeast, and Kabul. The French will continue to observe the action through heavy lenses.
Alliot-Marie also said that France plans to train Afghan special forces "because it appears important to us that the Afghans see that it is their own forces which are retaking the theater" of war. I can see it now. Raise your hand if you've been trained by the Americans. Raise both hands if you've been trained by the French.
More than ten years ago, in 1995, Congress enacted legislation which calls for the United States to move its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The move can be postponed, by the president, every six months for national security reasons. Every six months for ten years this has happened and George Bush has just postponed it again. Despite that, Bush said in a memorandum to the secretary of state on December 15th, "My administration remains committed to beginning the process of moving our embassy to Jerusalem."
What is the national security issue and why after ten years has it not been addressed?
An article in Reuters quotes a White House anonymous official, "Moving our embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem now would complicate our ability to help Israelis and Palestinians advance toward peace and the president's two-state vision."
Can anyone in this government tell the truth straight up? Oh yeah, John Bolton, but he's resigned. I wonder why?

A teacher at a western Louisville elementary school was told to change a Christmas tree bulletin board about two weeks ago after another teacher complained that it might offend some non-Christian students.
The Christmas tree at Brandeis Elementary was made out of construction-paper cutouts of children’s hands. Above it, it said: “Santa’s Helpers,” principal Servita West-Jordan said. West-Jordan said she asked the teacher to remove the word’s
“Santa’s Helpers” because she agreed that students in the class who were Indian or Muslim might be offended because they don’t necessarily believe in Christmas or Santa Claus.
West-Jordan said the teacher removed the entire display
about a week and a half ago, replacing it with a note that said the Grinch had stolen the bulletin board.
The teacher put the tree back up the next day with the words “Happy Holidays” above it.
“Everybody seems pleased with the outcome and we’ve moved past it,” West-Jordan said.
Aukram Burton, the Jefferson County Public Schools’ multi-cultural expert said, the district’s policy calls for holiday displays that don’t favor one religion over another.
“We want to include everyone and not to exclude anyone,” he said.
Burton said West-Jordan made the right decision by allowing the
Christmas tree to stay but requesting more inclusive words to go along with it.
From The Courier-Journal.
One of the many problems with this multi-cultural expert is he thinks he's including by excluding. If you censor my religion you have chosen to exclude me. If someone is offended, they have chosen to exclude themselves. And, no, Principal West-Jordan everyone is not pleased, far from it.

On this date in 1925, Army General William "Billy" Mitchell, the man many consider to be the father of the US Air Force, was found guilty of conduct prejudicial to the good of the armed services.
Eventually vindicated, he was promoted and awarded the Medal of Honor 20 years after his death.

Abbas has said he will call for early elections and in what amounts to a protest in Palestine, Hamas encouraged its followers to march (riot) across Gaza resulting in the wounding of eighteen Palestinians.
Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh says call for new vote were "inflammatory."I guess, but what isn't inflamatory to these madmen? In recent violence, three children of a Fatah security official were shot dead and this was followed by the execution of a Hamas judge.
It is certainly understandable why Israel would be reluctant to see a nation with this culture of killing established on their doorstep. It would be like building your dream house and then having someone erect an unsecured home for the criminally insane right next to it.

The ACLU wants copies of any agreement between ICE and the sheriff because "Sheriff Jones has already demonstrated hostility towards the Hispanic population in Butler County," ACLU of Ohio Staff Attorney Carrie Davis said. "It is important to review the document and discern what he can and cannot do under this agreement and ensure he stays within those boundaries."
What is it about enforcing our laws that so infuriates the ACLUnatics? Why do they interpret law enforcement as racist?
In Warren County Commissioners Mike Kilburn, Pat South and Dave Young have agreed to pursue the same powers. Kilburn said that he thinks it's ridiculous that wanting to enforce laws is often criticized as mean-spirited or racist. Your right, Mr. Kilburn, but that's not the way the ACLU wants to spin it.
Kilburn states it as it is. "Look, this is the United States of America. We welcome immigrants. We welcome people from other countries who want to come here. But we expect them to do it legally," he said. "Folks that are here illegally are going to be escorted out."
Sheriff Jones just wants to be the escort service and I thank him for it.

Meanwhile, Senator Bill Nelson, Democrat Florida, a member of the Armed Services and Foreign Relations committees, met with Assad of Syria even though the State Department said that it disapproved of his trip. The Donk's continue to display their absolute inability to show a united front in wartime.
Nelson was named to the Senate Intelligence Committee this week and said he was on a fact-finding mission to the region. Would you like to know what fact he discovered? Assad "clearly indicated a willingness to cooperate" in controlling the border with Iraq, he told reporters. Nelson reported this startling revelation to embassy officials and plans to brief other committee members as well. This guy should team up with Silvestre Reyes and they can become the "Dumb and Dumber" duo of DC.

On Monday, I wrote about William Jefferson's reelection, despite his pending indictment. This is just the beginning of a series of trials and tribulations for Nancy Pelosi as she tries to play politics as usual and still convince the public she is ushering in a new era of openess, honesty and integrity.
According to Pelosi, Jefferson will not return to his spot on the Ways and Means Committee, but nothing has been mentioned about another member, James McDermott, who was recently admonished by the House ethics committee for violating ethics standards by giving reporters access to an illegally taped telephone call involving Republican leaders a decade ago. It may be that in the eyes of the Donks this isn't really an ethics violation but good political practice.
Then there is Representative Alan Mollohan of West Virginia, who is in line to become chairman of an Appropriations subcommittee that oversees the FBI. Mollohan must answer questions about personal business deals.
Jefferson also holds a seat on the House Budget Committee and no one has indicated if he will retain that position, but the Washington Post writes that a source close to Pelosi indicates that she is more likely to place him on a lower-profile committee and hope the controversy dies down. We must try to make sure she doesn't get away with that strategy.
Nancy will have to do some mighty fancy stepping to keep the appearance of ethical, honest and open government while running business as usual politics.

CNN brings us this insight into the Democrat strategy to outdo the Republicans in leaving America unprotected. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, caring naught for what's best for her country, but focused on her dislike for Representative Jane Harman Democrat from California, chose Silvestre Reyes of Texas to head the Intelligence Committee satarting in January.
Reyes has his own shady backround that makes him fit the pattern of "open, ethical and honest" government that Pelosi seems intent on foisting upon us. Also, he is not an advocate of securing our borders. However, here is the clincher. Every member of Congress should know who our enemies are and as much about them as possible, especially a representative who has served on the intelligence panel since 2001.
Pelosi described Reyes as having "impeccable national security credentials" (whatever that means to her), and said, "When tough questions are required, whether they relate to intelligence shortcomings before the 9/11 attacks or the war in Iraq, or to the quality on intelligence on Iran or North Korea, he does not hesitate to ask them.'' He may ask them, but he certainly isn't remembering the answers.
When asked by CQ National Security Editor Jeff Stein whether al Qaeda is one or the other of the two major branches of Islam, Sunni or Shiite, Reyes answered "they are probably both," then ventured "Predominantly... probably Shiite." WRONG!
This would be hilarious if it weren't so typical of our government in general. He also could not answer questions put by Stein about Hezbollah, a Shiite group on the U.S. list of terrorist organizations that is based in Southern Lebanon. Asked to describe the Lebanese militant group, Congressional Quarterly said Reyes responded: "Hezbollah. Uh, Hezbollah," and then said, "Why do you ask me these questions at five o'clock?" I guess the terrorists all clock out and go home at 5PM, just like Reyes' brain.
Calls from CNN to Reyes' office asking for reaction to Stein's column have not been returned. They're probably clueless as to where the ringing is coming from. If it were a cash register they would respond.

There is a case before the Federal Appeals Court in Washington DC that bears watching by those of us who have bemoaned liberal groups and activist judges twisting and distorting the intent of the constitution.
Attorneys for the District of Columbia are arguing that the Second Amendment, the right to bear arms, applies only to militias. They are trying to defend the city's ban on handguns.
"We interpret the Second Amendment in military terms," said Todd Kim, the District's solicitor general, who told the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit that the city would also have had the authority to ban all weapons.
"Show me anybody in the 19th century who interprets the Second Amendment the way you do," Judge Laurence Silberman said. "It doesn't appear until much later, the middle of the 20th century."
Indeed, the right of Americans to own firearms has long been a tradition, an accepted right and a personal freedom.
If the courts decide that the right to bear arms refers exclusively to a well regulated militia, does the lack of need for a militia void the right to bear arms? There is something even more sinister at play here and it reveals itself in the statement by one of the plaintiffs' attorneys. "That's quite a task for any court to decide that a right is no longer necessary. If we decide that it's no longer necessary, can we erase any part of the Constitution?"
I can hear the murmuring from the depths of liberal hell welling up as I write. Is this another opportunity to subvert the intent of the Founding Fathers? While feigning love for the constitution, this, like freedom of religion, is a right the liberals love to hate.
If this case makes it to the Supreme Court and they are willing to hear it, it could be more significant than any abortion or death penalty case. If the government finally decides to remove the weapons of the law abiding citizens of our nation then the Liberty Bell can be used to toll the death knell of American freedom.

From the SunHerald comes this gem.
Kevin Pugh, 20, of Cedar Bluff, has been fined $279 for tossing a pig over the counter at the Holiday Inn Express in West Point on Nov. 12.
Pugh pleaded guilty Tuesday in city court to a charge of disturbing the peace.
West Point Police Lt. Danny McCaskill has said Pugh didn't know the employees of the hotel. There was no evidence intoxication was a factor.
No one was hurt, including the pig, officers said.
"This was the silliest thing I've ever seen," McCaskill said. "Almost every officer we had was involved because the incidents kept happening at different hours."
McCaskill said Pugh was accused of walking into the hotel and throwing the 60-pound pig over the counter.
"He said it was a prank," McCaskill said. "It must be some redneck thing, because I haven't ever heard of anything like it."
McCaskill said there have been four late-night incidents involving animal-tossing at West Point businesses. Twice a pig was tossed and two of the incidents involved possums.
All four of the disturbances took place between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m., McCaskill said.
Pugh is accused in a second animal-throwing incident at a Hardee's restaurant. He has pleaded innocent to disturbing the peace in that case and will appear in city court on Dec. 19.

An American Airlines flight from Washington to Texas landed at Nashville airport, Tennessee, after passengers alerted the crew to the smell of burning sulphur.
Lynne Lowrance, a spokeswoman for Nashville International Airport Authority said all the passengers and their luggage were taken off the plane and searched.
A very unlucky canine team was brought in to sniff the aircraft for explosives.
After questioning by the FBI, a female passenger admitted to lighting matches on board the aircraft to conceal her gas, Ms Lowrance said.
“For a long time she did not admit to striking matches and I think that was just out of embarrassment,” she said.
The unidentified woman was not charged, but “American Airlines did ban her from flying on their airline for a very long time,” Ms Lowrance said.

From the Calcutta News comes this recent piece exemplifying the role John Bolton took at that world body of corruption called the United Nations.
Bolton was furious over the adoption by the General Assembly of a resolution which said the assembly regretted the deaths of 19 civilians in an attack by the Israeli military in the town of Beit Hanoun last week and delivered a scathing attack on the UN.
"Many of the sponsors of that resolution are notorious abusers of human rights themselves, and were seeking to deflect criticism of their own policies," he said.
"This type of resolution serves only to exacerbate tensions by serving the interests of elements hostile to Israel's inalienable and recognized right to exist."
"This deepens suspicions about the United Nations that will lead many to conclude that the organization is incapable of playing a helpful role in the region," Bolton continued.
"In a larger sense, the United Nations must confront a more significant question, that of its relevance and utility in confronting the challenges of the 21st century. We believe that the United Nations is ill served when its members seek to transform the organization into a forum that is a little more than a self-serving and a polemical attack against Israel or the United States," he said.
"The Human Rights Council has quickly fallen into the same trap and de-legitimized itself by focusing attention exclusively on Israel. Meanwhile, it has failed to address real human rights abuses in Burma, Darfur, the DPRK, and other countries," Bolton charged.
"The problem of anti-Israel bias is not unique to the Human Rights Council. It is endemic to the culture of the United Nations. It is a decades-old, systematic problem that transcends the whole panoply of the UN organizations and agencies," he continued.
This is a voice of truth that will be greatly missed.

Ali Bardakoglu, who heads Ankara's Directorate General for Religious Affairs, thinks that when the pope visits Turkey next week, he should say he believes Islam, like Christianity, to be a religion of peace. "I think the attitude the Pope should take is that neither Islam nor Christianity is a source of violence," he stated. I read this right after finishing an article that told of hundreds of schools in southern Thailand that will close because of attacks by Muslims against teachers and schools. Inspired by their "peaceful" religion, attackers shot a school principal on Friday, and then set his body on fire. It was Ali Bardakoglu who called criticism of Islam a serious threat to world peace. Why would that be? Is Islam peaceful as long as everyone tiptoes around it? That does not even appear to be true.
In a previous statement Ali said of the pope, "I do not think any good will come from the visit to the Muslim world of a person who has such ideas about Islam's prophet. He should first of all replace the grudge in his heart with moral values and respect for the other." This must be because of the respect and tolerance accorded to others by the prophet's psychotics. Remember, this is the country that banned Piglet from their cartoons. Sure, we all believe you're a rational, peaceful lot because you say so. When pigs fly!

Fatma Najar, 57, was a grandmother. On Thursday afternoon she approache IDF soldiers in Gaza with an explosive device strapped to her and carrying an M-16 assault rifle. She died, becoming the second thwarted suicide terror attack against the IDF in Gaza in the past month.
On a video released by Hamas, the woman read out a statement saying said she wanted to dedicate her death to Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli jails and to Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh of Hamas. "I offer myself as a sacrifice to God and to the homeland," she said.
"I am very proud of what she did. Allahu Akbar," said one of her sons.
Hamas targets the innocent, uses human shields and now recruits grandmothers to commit homicide by suicide. These people may be the most craven swine known to mankind. Still, they find supporters and collaborators throughout the Western world. Obviously we have our own suicidal element working against the survival of our civilization. Both enemies need to be dealt with, quickly and decisively.

This whole Michael Richards news event is turning out like a Seinfeld episode. First we had the two ridiculous "reverends" Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton brought into the script and now ambulance chaser Gloria Allred has written herself into a scene. The two men upon whom Richards launched his verbal assault want some money for their pain and suffering (no one expects to be insulted in a comedy club). "It is not enough to go on television and say ‘I'm sorry,'" Allred said. (Of course not where's the money, publicity and entertainment in that?)
"We are issuing a challenge to Michael Richards." That would require Richards to meet face-to-face with the two men in front of a judge. "We want the retired judge to make a recommendation on how much Michael Richards should pay to compensate our clients," Allred said.
Al Sharpton, being the kind of "reverend" he is won't accept an apology. Way to go and glorify God with your Christian forgiveness there Al! By the way, exactly what religion and/or church is Al a reverend for?
We're dealing with cartoon characters come to life, from Richards right on through to Allred. I hope this comedy doesn't get renewed for another season.

BEWARE! Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has announced that House Donks will hold a forum on Iraq next week. Here is the beginning of the end. Maj. Gen. John Batiste, Ambassador Richard Holbrooke, and Dr. Zbigniew Brzezinski will join Democrat lawmakers on Dec. 5 to discuss a way "forward" in Iraq. "The war in Iraq is one of the most critical issues confronting our nation, and the American people have clearly called for a New Direction in Iraq," Pelosi said. "We know that 'stay the course' is not working, has not made our country safer, has not honored the commitment to our troops, and has not brought stability to the region. I look forward to hearing from our distinguished group of experts as House Democrats discuss the deteriorating situation in Iraq."
The Donks "New Misdirection" is what Pelosi is talking about. How does she know our country is not safer; How does one empirically test that? What commitment to our troops has not been honored? And I find it hard to believe that anyone is naive enough to believe stability in that part of the world is achievable that quickly.
If another terrorist attack happens, during the Donk control of Congress, count on them to disavow any responsibility and still try to blame it on Bush. But, come January, Nancy and her boys have ownership and we shall see what this "distinguished group of experts" do to improve national security.

King Gyanendra of Nepal has been branded a criminal and Nepal’s prime minister has hinted that criminal charges are possible.
A government commission has found him responsible for a brutal crackdown on the protesters who forced him to give up direct rule in April. He has since been stripped of his powers, command over the army, and immunity from prosecution.
The king of Nepal is traditionally regarded as an incarnation of the Hindu God Vishnu, but Maoist rebels are pushing for the 240-year-old monarchy to be abolished.
In 2004 Gyanendra said “On the living-god thing, let me interpret it this way: we were given the personification of Vishnu. But I’m a pragmatic person. I’ve never said I’m God” How right he was or we might be seeing God in the dock.
According to an article in the The Times of India, Jack the Ripper was short, stocky and about 30 years old "frighteningly normal" according to a profile of the notorious Victorian-era killer published on Monday using state-of-the-art technology.
Laura Richards, head of analysis for the Metropolitan Police's Violent Crime Command, has drawn up what is believed to be the most accurate portrait of the murderer after analysing evidence from the case using modern police techniques. She claims that the evidence from 118-years ago shows that the ripper was between 25 and 35 years old, had a stocky build, and stood between five feet five inches and five feet seven inches tall.
"We can name the street where he probably lived and we can see what he looked like; and we can explain, finally, why this killer eluded justice," Richards said.
Doesn't it seem these efforts could be put to better use on cases where the killers might be less than 150 years old?

John Kerry not only lies to others, he lies to himself as well. On Sunday, he stated his "botched joke" that intimated if you're uneducated and/or stupid you could wind up in the military, would not undermine his White house bid in 2008.
Kerry said he decided to keep a low profile at the end of the last election. "Since we had very close races, I made the decision to make certain that I didn't distract. The results speak for themselves," he said. Of course John, in your mind the Donks did well because of your actions when, in truth, they succeeded in spite of your bufoonishness.
"Since we had very close races, I made the decision to make certain that I didn't distract. The results speak for themselves," he said. Of course John, in your mind the Donks did well because of your actions when, in truth, they succeeded in spite of your bufoonishness.
"Not in the least," Kerry, the clown, said when asked if the uproar over his comment had caused him to reconsider his 2008 run. "The parlor game of who's up, who's down, today or tomorrow, if I listened to that stuff, I would never have won the nomination."
Then he donned his wig, big red nose, baggy pants and oversized shoes, climbed into the tiny car with a dozen other Donks and they drove out of the big Democrat tent as the calliope music crescendoed.

found Taliban commanders and their fighters recuperating in the Pakistani city of Quetta last week and moving freely around parts of the city.
"In the northern suburb of Pashtunabad, more than 30 Taliban were recovering from the bloodiest fighting in Afghanistan since their regime was ousted," the report said.
Dressed in neatly pressed robes with the black turbans and kohi-rimmed eyes typical of the Taliban, they lounged on cushions, sipping green tea and sucking at boiled sweets while laughing at NATO reports that they have sustained heavy casualties.In the safe house in Quetta, several regional commanders were present and confirmed they used Quetta to relax and study out of reach of NATO. Although the men said they were regularly "shaken down" by the police, a bribe of as little as 2 pounds usually resolved the issue.
Pakistan is going to be a major obstacle for us in the War on Terror. They are more a part of the problem than the solution and the fact that they are a nuclear power is disturbing. Someday in the not too distant future we will see those weapons pointed in our direction.
Anyway, Strossen indicated that in some ways the Clinton administration was just as bad as the Bush administration when it came to civil liberties. She said that after the Oklahoma City bombing of 1995, President Bill Clinton and other members of his administration moved to restrict the rights of Americans, which "vastly reduced their due process rights."
Of course, in Nadine's view and that of the ACLU its so much better to have potential terrorists and anarchists running amok protected, than protecting the security of the vast majority of American citizens. Still, there is one politician she loves, Vermont Senator-elect and self described socialist Bernard Sanders, I-Vt. She admired his efforts on legislation to keep the government out of the country's public libraries and called him "a national leader." His work on those issues has been "fabulous," Strossen said. Fabulously, subversive, Nadine, just like your ACLUnatics. Sanders is the co-founder of the Congressional Progressive Caucus a confederacy of misfits and malcontents of the worst order.
I don't know if it's the water or the gene pool, but Vermont needs help.

Khalid's excuse? "When I made the assignment, I was upset and angry about a story I recently saw on the news. If any message appears, it is more of a message to myself, not to my students. I never meant to hurt or upset any students or parents," Chahhou said. If "destroy America" is the message you're sending to yourself then you're going to upset some Americans, pal.
By the way, a search for Khalid comes up with this little mention from August at Canada.com. Khalid's seems to be a busy little bigmouth.
Speaking at a pro-Lebanon rally a stone's throw from the White House Saturday, attended by thousands, Khalid Chahhou, from North Carolina, said Bush's comments do not promote the U.S. government's fight against terrorism."All those people here are against terrorism and we are against fascism also, so to classify Muslims and fascists, that's unfair and unjust, and it doesn't make America in the eyes of many Muslims respectful," he said. "If Mr. Bush means by 'fascists' terrorism, then we are all against terrorism." Really, Khalid, and where does the "destroy America" part fit into that?

Bush tried to act like everything was ok, saying he and Roh have a mutual desire to "effectively enforce the will of the world." That's about as sincere and effective as George's effort to secure our borders.
Let's get our troops out of there and maybe the South Koreans can recall who it was that saved their country in the "police action" of the early 1950's. Perhaps a few decades under the thumb of "Dear Leader" will give these appeasers a taste of reality.

According to the Detroit Free Press, Sisayehiticha Dinssa, a 34-year-old Dallas man, was arrested at Detroit Metro Airport on Tuesday, carrying $78,883 in cash and a laptop computer containing mysterious files about cyanide and nuclear materials.
A U.S. citizen who was born in Ethiopia, Dinssa was arrested after getting off an airline flight from Amsterdam. It seems he had spent four months in Nigeria on unspecified business. That business needs to be investigated.
When agents asked him whether he had any cash to declare, he said he had $18,000, authorities said. But when agents checked his luggage, they found an additional $60,883. When they scrolled through his laptop, they said they found the mysterious files. Dinssa told agents he was interested in learning about cyanide and nuclear materials. I wonder what drove his interest.
This will be a case to watch.

Mexican officials are upset that U.S. Border Patrol agents crossed the border into Mexico without permission while chasing drug smugglers last week. The truck they were using had been stolen in El Paso.
The city of Juárez issued a statement "condemning that authorities from other countries enter a national territory without respect for sovereignty." How's that for chutzpah? Since when has Mexico ever valued the national territory and sovereignty of the USA?
City official Jorge Alvarez Compeán said Mexico should formally complain to the United States.
Even though the intent was to stop drug smuggling, "The end does not justify the action,"he said. In other words, nobody paid him to let this happen.
The Border Patrol admits the incident took place. So what? Mexican military, police, smugglers and illegals violate the border hourly. Where's Jorge's indignation over that? If "the end doesn't justify the action" then that also applies to his countymen who break our laws and violate our sovereignty as a national pastime.

Here's some not unexpected, but still distressing news from The Arizona Republic. If you fly into the United States from a foreign country you'll have your picture and fingerprints taken and your passport examined so officials can make sure you are who you say you are. So far, so good. But, if you return home chances are no one will even know.
Five years after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, this government still hasn't developed a system to track whether foreigners have left the country when their visas expire. Add to that their complete failure to secure our northern and southern borders and our ports and you have evidence of gross malfeasance on the part of the President and Congress.
"I don't think most of the Congress understands that the problem of unauthorized migration is one that occurs beyond the Southwest border," said Deborah Meyers, a senior policy analyst at the Migration Policy Institute. "If they were to pay more attention to that, I think they would be more interested in the exit system."
Well, it's my perception that Congress neither understands, nor cares. The most depressing part is I'm starting to wonder if the citizens do.
Continuing the Democrats' "new misdirection" by focusing on corrupt leadership, Nancy Pelosi is pushing for Jack Murtha as House majority leader. But, Jack has been caught saying that the rules governing congressional ethics, proposed by Nancy Pelosi, are "total crap."
Appearing Wednesday on MSNBC's "Hardball' Chris Matthews asked Murtha to clarify his remarks. He asked Murtha if it was " . . . total crap to tell people you can’t take a lunch from somebody? Where do you draw—where is your position on ethics right now?" Murtha tried to say that the "crap" he was talking about "is the crap that people have violated the law, the crap that the kind of things that have happened with Abramoff, the kind of things that have happened with some of the members." (Murtha should talk about the kind of things that happen on FBI sting tapes.)
But, back at the interview, Mathews was not about to let Murtha lie his way out so easily. "But that’s not what you said," Matthews shot back. "Didn’t you say it was total crap, what she was proposing?"
Murtha lies again: "What I said was . . . it is total crap that we have to deal with an issue like this when we’ve got a war going on and we got all these other issues - $8 billion a month we’re spending . . ."
This, then, will be the direction the Donk leadership will be taking; the same old pattern of lies, corruption and deceit. I guess they're practicing for when a Clinton is in the White House again.

So, the Donks begin their "new direction" for our country by naming "Dirty" Harry Reid as Senate Majority Leader. However, their little pledge says "With a firm commitment to honest leadership" and to even suggest that Reid meets that requirement is asking the average citizen to abandon all discernment.
Let's do a brief review. Harry had to amend his ethics reports to correct where he deliberately failed to account for a land deal that allowed him to collect $1.1 million for property he hadn't personally owned for three years. He used campaign donations instead of his personal money to pay Christmas bonuses for the support staff at the Ritz-Carlton where he lives. He accepted free ringside tickets from the Nevada Athletic Commission to three professional boxing matches while that state agency was trying to influence him on federal regulation of boxing and lied about the ethics rules.
And just recently, he backed funding for a bridge between Nevada and Arizona that could affect the value of property he owns nearby. "Senator Reid's support for the bridge had absolutely nothing to do with property he owned," said the statement from his office. "Senator Reid supported this project for one reason only - his continuing efforts to move Nevada forward." Still, if you're going to espouse honest, transparent leadership shouldn't you eschew all semblance of impropriety? I guess not, if you're a Democrat. Yet, this is the same guy who promised to bring more openness to the practice of earmarking. I'm sure!
The "new misdirection" of the Donks is to take us down the same old road of dishonest and corrupt leadership just that this time it's called Democrat instead of Republican.
President Bush gave Martinez his blessing at a meeting in the Oval Office, calling the Cuban-born senator an American success story.
"He's going to be an excellent spokesman for the Republican Party," Bush said. "He'll be a person who'll be able to carry our message as we go into an important year in 2008." What message would that be, the same one that got us a thumpin' last election day?
Refusing to comment on how Republicans went wrong November 7th, Martinez said, "I am not going to do a post-mortem." It would be helpful, however, to know what the new party chairman thinks needs to be corrected. Something like actually protecting the nation's borders, stopping the reckless spending or weeding out the corruption within the party.
No, we just get the usual load of manure, "It's not an easy time for our party. It's time for us to come together and pick ourselves up and look to the future and be the party of hope and opportunity that we've been in the past." Hold your arms above your head, maybe you can save your watch.

Three plaintiffs had contended the city government of Las Cruces had violated the First Amendment because of the three crosses on its logo. To them this meant that the city was endorsing a religion. Nevermind, that the city name is "the crosses," that means nothing to the Americans United for Separation of Church and State and the other looney toons who have nothing better to do than create controversy where they should be none.
However, at this point, a federal judge has dismissed the lawsuit saying the city's use of the crosses is secular. U.S. District Judge Robert Brack wrote, "When there is no evidence of the original purpose for adopting a practice, the government may propose possible secular justifications for the challenged practice."
Paul F. Weinbaum, one of the plaintiffs said, "I told Judge Brack a while back ... that no matter the outcome we will appeal and this case will be appealed.," He has sued the Las Cruces schools on similar grounds, and that case is set for trial Nov. 27.
Note: The other two plaintiffs are Martin J. Boyd and Weinbaum's daughter Olivia, but it is Weinbaum who seems to need this cause to vent his anger at life in general.

Mizanur Rahman was one of the 300 islamomaniacs that carried placards calling for non-Muslims to be “annihilated” and “beheaded” outside the Danish Embassy in London on February 3. All this because of cartoons of Mohammad in a Danish newspaper. Later they were reprinted in, believe it or nor, France, and also Spain and Germany.
Rahman was caught on film with two palcards, reading “Annihilate those who insult Islam” and “Behead those who insult Islam”.
He was also caught on film addressing the crowd with these little hate gems. “We don’t want to see them in Baghdad, in Iraq any more. We want to see them coming home in body bags. “We want to see their blood running in the streets of Baghdad. We want to see the Mujahidin shoot down their planes like we shoot down birds.” He told the crowd: “We want to see their tanks burn just like we burn their flags. We want to see them and their freedoms destroyed. We want to see all of them removed from our Muslim lands.” He went on: “They don’t deserve to live, they don’t deserve anything in this world. Oh Allah, we want to see another 9/11 in Iraq, another 9/11 in Denmark, another 9/11 in Spain, in France, all over Europe. Oh Allah, destroy all of them.”
“There is only one God Allah, Muhammad is his messenger. Bomb bomb France, bomb bomb France, nuke nuke France, nuke nuke France.”
The jury convicted Rahman of stirring up racial hatred. Now, he can really get carried away.

Rep. Bennie Thompson, Mississippi Democrat, told reporters this week that he expected to "revisit" the issue when he becomes chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee in the 110th Congress.
Mr. Thompson said the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) new border enforcement program, known as the Secure Border Initiative or SBI Net -- which includes monitors, cameras and other integrated surveillance systems -- is a viable alternative to fencing.
"We might do away with it, or look at [integrating it into] SBI Net," he said. "A virtual fence rather than a real one."
A "virtual fence" will assure access across our borders to "virtually" anyone and provide the politicians with more opportunity to waste taxpayer dollars and idulge in graft and kickbacks. William Jefferson will need a deep freeze to hold his ill-gotten gains and "Honest" Harry Reid may soon have more money than Las Vegas and Reno combined.
Why bother with a fence at all when it is obvious we are going to have amnesty for everyone and the only people who will be punished are the loyal American citizens? How long before we grant dual citizenship to every country in the Western Hemisphere and finish driving this great nation into the thirld world cesspool.
Keep watching the donks you elected, the show is about to begin!
WILL HARRELL, TEXAS ACLUnatics Director
The Dallas News reports that the Farmers Branch City Council, on Monday, will vote on whether to make English the city's official language, enroll police officers in a federal training program that will essentially make them immigration officials, and enact an ordinance to prohibit landlords from renting to illegal immigrants. Local laws like this are being passed around the country because the Federal government continues to be derelict in its duty to enforce existing laws.
Here in Arizona, voters just passed four propositions that deny bail to illegal immigrants charged with serious felonies; block illegal immigrants from obtaining punitive damages in lawsuits; prevent them from benefiting from state-subsidized programs for adult education, child care and other services; and make English the state's official language. It sure doesn't sound like the public is in favor of the Bush amnesty and John McCain's banana.
But, wait here comes the ACLUnatics! Will Harrell, executive director of the ACLU of Texas has teamed his demon legion with the Mexican American Legal Defense Fund and The League of United Latin American Citizens. Notice how these groups identify themselves as Americans, but take the side of aliens breaking American law.Their allegiance is completely based on ethnicity and is as racist as any Klan gathering. And, just like all other racists, intimidation is the weapon as Harrell threatens the elected city government with hundreds of thousands of dollars in court costs. Even the mayor's home was vandalized this month when someone spray-painted "Viva Mexicos" on his house. Yes, this what what the tolerance loving liberals unleash in their quest for unbridled power over the majority of American citizens.
Harrell then has the nerve to call others bigots. "My understanding is that some bigots on the City Council in Farmers Branch are fiscal conservatives. ... We hope whatever moves them, that reason will prevail," he said. "We fully anticipate, frankly, that their lawyers – without even getting into what their ideological perspective is – will tell them you simply cannot do this in a way that will not wind up in court."
Hopefully, if it goes to court it will wind up in defeat for Harrell and his pack of racist jackals. Give 'em hell Texas, it's where they belong.
Neil Abercrombie represents the first congressional district of Hawaii. This last election he was returned to office one more time. So what does he bring to the "new direction" the donks have in store for us?
He is no friend of Israel and seems to have quite the soft spot for terrorist groups like Hamas and Hezbollah. (read this).
He did manage to support Planned Parenthood 100% in 2006 and NARAL 100% in 2005. You can't get more pro abortion than that.
He supported the interests of the ACLU 100% in 2005-2006 and the NAACP in 2005. Those are frightening statistics.
He has received a rating of F by the NRA.
He supported the interests of CURE 80% of the time. You'll love this group, they call criminals "errants". Enough said?
He supported the Secular Coalition for America 80% of the time. This group wants "under God" removed from the pledge of allegiance.
This leftwinger's looney credentials are too numerous to list entirely, but I think you get the picture. Oh, by the way, he gets an absolute ZERO from the American Security Council which means he useless in helping to keep America secure. (even Nancy Pelosi managed an 11). Don't forget this guy is a member of the House Armed Services Committee. He also serves on the board of Amnesty International. Isn't that somehow a conflict of interest?
Abercrombie is married to a feminist author Nancie Caraway who recently was caught swiping an Ed Case campaign sign from a community garden and stowing it in her in her car. With the gift of liberal spin and deceit she tried to pass it off as protecting the environment. Go here to see her letter attacking Evangelical Christians.
So, this is the "new direction" we're taking thanks to the last election. I am going to continue highlighting the new congress so you all can see what we have wrought. Anyone who would like to have me feature their congressman or add information about their representative please leave me a comment. And anyone who would like to link to this information, knock yourself out. The country needs to know what the "new direction is and what it means to the destruction of life as we now enjoy it.
Ok, everyone, try to contain your disappointment. Russ Feingold will not be the next president of the United States. I know, it's hard to believe, considering the way America just voted itself a giant step toward becoming the next great socialist power in the world.
Wouldn't comrade Feingold have made a fine commissar for the Democrat People's Party of United Socialist States? Feingold has decided against seeking the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination, saying he wants to focus on his work in the Senate. The continuing work of subversion he has been engaged in for the last fourteen years is what he means. The fact that this guy keeps getting elected means there must be hallucinogenic mold on much of Wisconsin's cheese.
UPDATE: Here's one of the tinfoil mad hatters' comments at topix.net responding to this post:
For the last 6 years progressive democrats have heard the republicans say "get over it," referring to the loss of elections. The shoe is now on the other foot. Get over it.
Feingold is not the enemy. Imperialism is, and the blindness of die hard republicans that fail to realize that the nation has taken a hard right toward fascism. I do not like the idea of any party being in control of all three branches of government Yes, I am a democrat. I am a democrat because they were the viable opposition party to Bush and his henchmen. I will keep any eye on them as closely as I watched the republicans.
I fault you republicans that failed to realize the dangers of this imperial presidency and continued to support and promote the ideals of the administration. Feingold recognized the dangers and fought to curtail the abuse.
May a pox find you all for not recognizing the dangers you placed this nation in. Iraq was not involved in 911.
You cannot win a war against terrorist by declaring war on terrorism any more than you can curtail drug use by declaring a war on drugs.
Politics is not a sport that deserves blind support and loyalty to a team. Residents of the world are all on the same team and until such a time as self interest stops trumping global concerns we are doomed to repeat history.
Democrats were told to get over it, not because they disagreed with Bush or his policies, but because they kept saying the elections were rigged. Notice, now that they finally won one in a row we hear nothing about voting machines, long lines, chads, etc. That's because Republican's, for the most part, act like adults and do not wish plagues upon their opponents. (EXAMPLE: "May a pox find you all for not recognizing the dangers you placed this nation in.")
