Hillary's Poisoned Fruit

Shillary the socialist, like her Democrat opponents Obama and Edwards, is already proposing to raise taxes on upper-income Americans. "It's time for a new beginning, for an end to government of the few, by the few, and for the few, time to reject the idea of an ‘on your own' society and to replace it with shared responsibility for shared prosperity," she said. "I prefer a ‘we're all in it together' society."

If any of these economy killing Donk dolts manages to get themselves elected, we will all be in it together, it being the biggest manure pile of stagnation and economic depression this country has seen in a long, long time.

What's Right For America ?

According to our president opponents of his illegal amnesty legacy which was conjured up in secret, out of sight of American citizens, "don't want to do what's right for America."

Yet, we are to believe that a bill to benefit foreign lawbreakers, that tramples on our laws and sovereignty and is against the wishes of a vast American majority is good. Someone give this man a reality pill.

Bush says, "The fundamental question is, will elected officials have the courage necessary to put a comprehensive immigration plan in place." I beg to differ, Mr. President. The fundamental question is why have you and your bevy of fellow betrayers not had the courage to enforce the laws already on the books? Why do you pick and choose those laws you want obeyed?

What's good for America is the enforcement of our existing laws, the securing of our borders and the deportation of everyone that has no legal right to be here. Now, for once, have the courage to go and do your job as outlined by law and by your oath of office.

The Chavez Fairness Doctrine

This is why Hugo is a hero to the fringe left like Danny Glover. He just forced a television station critical of his leftist government off the air, accusing it of "subversive" activities and of backing a 2002 coup against him. He also accused the station of violating broadcast laws and "poisoning" Venezuelans with programming that promoted capitalism. Chavez says he is democratizing the airwaves by turning the network's signal over to public use.

Yes, the left loves Hugo because he is a the kind of despot they can support.

Is Jon Kyl Feeling The Arizona Heat ?

Jon Kyl sits by a pay phone.
Could he be awaiting his next instructions from Teddy Kennedy?

Jon Kyl said his office has been swamped with angry, sometimes vitriolic, reaction. He estimated that sentiment is running "10 to 1" against the Senate legislation.

"At the fringe, there are some folks who should remember what their mother told them on how to act," Kyl said during a meeting Friday with the editorial board of The Arizona Republic.

If Jon's mother or father ever taught him anything about integrity, perhaps he could do us all a favor and remember that. People tend to get upset when you deliberately mislead them about your intentions and betray their trust. There are no words too pejorative to describe a Judas like you, Jon.

During the last election Kyl stood with a group of Arizona sheriffs and condemned his opponent for supporting the 1986 amnesty. Now, he supports the biggest shamnesty of all time. Again, Jon, there are no comments too disparaging to describe you. The backlash has not yet begun.

Kennedy And Kyl Opening The Floodgates

While the quislings Kennedy and Kyl laugh it up in Washington over their bill of betrayal, events in Mexico give us a good idea what we may anticipate if this abomination is made law.

Let's begin
here. Earlier this month a pre-dawn attack by dozens of heavily armed men in the town of Cananea, only 20 miles south of Arizona, left four police dead. Two other officers were found severely beaten. Sonora's governor revealed that police in Cananea and Agua Prieta (another border town) were being investigated involving corruption allegations.

Also this month, a police commander in the wealthy Monterrey suburb, San Nicolas de los Garza, was killed by gunmen wielding automatic rifles. The leader of a state investigative police team was killed in Hermosillo, the Sonora state capital. Gunmen also killed the chief of criminal investigations in the Gulf coast state of Tabasco

A newspaper in the northwestern Mexican state of Sonora announced it will shut down temporarily amid continued criminal attacks and threats. Recently, unidentified assailants tossed a hand grenade from a passing car at the offices of the newspaper, located in the Sonoran capital of Hermosillo, following a similar attack in April.

Earlier this year, Hector Ayala, chief of police in the wealthy town of San Pedro Garza Garcia outside Monterrey, was killed when a car overtook his vehicle and opened fire. Four hours before that happened, Sabinas Hidalgo police chief Javier Garcia was abducted by armed assailants, bound and shot in the back of the head. His body was found alongside a highway outside the farming town of 30,000, about 50 miles north of Monterrey and 80 miles south of the U.S. border at Laredo, Texas.

While the list goes on and on showing what danger lurks at our borders , those with no integrity, like our lying Senator Jon Kyl here in Arizona, continue to plot against us.

Out From The Shadows, One Illegal At A Time

Out from the shadows now, another illegal was found doing the work Americans won't do. From AP comes this little story of imported crime.

In Mission, Texas police say the jingle of an ice cream truck meant pot-sickles. Elementary school students tipped them off to an ice cream truck driver who was apparently selling $5 and $10 bags of marijuana from the truck.

I guess the kids weren't familiar with the sanctuary, politically correct, liberal handbook on how illegals are to receive special tratment.

Raymundo Flores, a 40-year-old illegal immigrant from Mexico, was arrested Thursday on charges of possession of marijuana. His customers were mostly in the third, fourth and fifth grades.

Why We Need To Win

Ayman al-Zawahiri, the deputy leader of Al-Qa'ida, has told his terrorists in Iraq to extend their "holy war" to other nearby nations. He claims they are defeating US forces and tells his mob of murderers to expand their threat of terror.

I wonder if he got this impression by listening to the Democrats, Queen Hillary and her flying legions of surrender monkeys. They seem to be just fine with al-Zawahiri's psychotic vision of an Islamic hell hole fashioned from the remains of Lebanon, Palestine and Syria. Wouldn't that stabilize the Middle East?

Do You Think?

A CNN on line poll asks. "Do you think China's military growth should worry the United States? 22% of those responding said no. When I checked that was 17,667 likely Americans who think we have nothing to fear from the Chicoms. If this is not enough to show what ignorance, apathy and the scourge of liberalism have wrought upon our nation, I'm not sure what would be required.

Do none of these people remember that Chinese Major General Zhu Chenghu said China would be prepared to attack the United States with nuclear weapons if U.S. forces intervened in a confrontation with Taiwan?

Are they unaware that China is currently spending two to three times more than the $30 billion per year publicly announced as its defense budget? That is a
Pentagon estimate and all that money has gone into building a modern military with the ability to fire nuclear missiles from submarines anywhere in the Pacific Ocean.

Do they not know that the city of Shanghai has
constructed a million-square-foot underground bunker complex capable of sheltering 200,000 people from a nuclear attack?

Did they miss the report that China has not only developed, but actually
deployed missiles that give it second-strike nuclear capability?

Do they care that the FBI has named China as the biggest espionage threat we face?

Does anything faze these people? God help us, I truly fear for my country if this many among us are oblivious to the evils we face.

Chertoff Secures The Mosques, America Is Safe

The Department of Homeland Security that tells us we can't deport all the illegals, that we can't control our borders, that we can't catch aliens who've overstayed their visas...can give money to mosques to upgrade their security.

Michael Chertoff, who accuses people against amnesty for illegals of wanting the death penalty for them, seems to have no issue with spending American tax dollars to secure the least likely places of worship the islamomaniacs will attack.

Are we to trust this imbecile and his fellow flock of fools to implement a new immigration bill successfully? It is doubtful Chertoff could catch anything more dangerous than a cold and he certainly has no stomach for any real challenge.

Folks, we can't allow these incompetents to continue to endanger us. We must demand that our money be spent to secure this nation and not on coddling those who hate America.

A special thanks to Anna, who got me on the ball about this one.

Navarette Nonsense

Ruben Navarette, the resident Hispanic bigot encouraged by CNN, has words of advice for lower class whites and blacks. "Grow up. Stop complaining. And go get more skills. Then you won't have to suffer the humiliation of being driven out of the market by folks with a sixth-grade education who are here illegally and don't even speak English."

I would like CNN to give a column to a white or black person that is allowed to say "Grow up. Stop breaking the laws of the USA. And go fix your piece of crap country. Then you won't have to suffer the humiliation of sneaking in where you don't belong and aren't wanted."

Navarette needs to change his citizenship and go live in Mexico where he would be more comfortable than having to rub elbows with the white devils. It's bigots like him that are ruining this nation.

Bill Richardson Striking Out Again

Fantasy plagued Bill Richardson, although seemingly cured of his bout of baseball unreality has unfortunately succumbed to pretend time again. Believing himself to be a viable candidate for the White House team, he has thrown his cap into the on deck circle and waits anxiously to be called on to hit.

Speculation is that because there have been many great baseball talents of Hispanic descent, Bill thought he could feign his fame in that arena. Now, because immigration is an issue he is trying to ride his Hispanic roots to notoriety once again. Unfortunately for Bill, being part Hispanic is not enough and talent is required, an area in which Bill is sorely lacking.

Back to the minors Bill!

Many thanks to Moonbattery for the picture of Bill missing a high hard one!

Jimmy Carter Says, Depends

Former President Jimmy Carter said Monday his remarks were "careless or misinterpreted" when he said the Bush administration has been the "worst in history" for its impact around the world.

Well, which one is it you dementia ridden old fool? Either get your crap together or shut the hell up.

Security, Jimmy's loose in the hallway again! Bring a mop.

Out Of The Shadows

From NewsMax comes a report that an illegal alien has been charged with shooting a Wisconsin sheriff's deputy in the face and killing him.

Ezeiquiel Lopez was charged in the death of Kenosha County Sheriff's Deputy Frank Fabiano. According to the article, Lopez admits to drinking tequila on the night of the murder and doing cocaine. But he told investigators that he doesn't remember shooting anyone.

Lopez's prior criminal record includes:

2001: arrested in Utah for lewd and lascivious conduct.
2003: arrested in Texas on a gun charge.
2003: picked-up in Missouri for drunk driving.
2004: arrested on charges of domestic battery, disorderly conduct, bail jumping.

He was never deported, but he is out of the shadows now.

"We can find no record of having had contact with this individual before or having had him referred to us by another law enforcement agency," Tim Counts of Immigration and Customs Enforcement stated.

So, the failure of law enforcement to do the right thing resulted in the death of one of their own. Playing politically correct, liberal politics pays a high price.

Now, what makes any rational person think when the Shamnesty is passed things will improve? Is anyone naive enough to believe that a government that won't protect its borders will do a good job of enforcing new legislation? Prepare America.

The Shadow Knows What Evil Lurks

I can't listen to President Bush talk about illegals. Whoever came up with the phrase "come out of shadows" should first be kneecapped, then flayed alive and finally have salt applied to their wounds with steel wool.

People are only in the shadows because they have broken the law and have something to hide. Bank robbers, drug dealers, pedophiles all operate in the shadows. Shall we legalize their desires so they can come out into the light of day?

The Senate of the United States put this travesty of an amnesty bill together in the shadows, behind closed doors. If it's good enough for Teddy Kennedy, it's good enough for the illegals.

Lofgren Preps The Whore House For Business

While the Senate quislings have been conducting cabals behind closed doors to formulate the betrayal of the American public, the traitors in the House have been busy as well. Representative Zoe Lofgren, D-San Jose, chairs the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration, Citizenship, Refugees, Border Security and International Law. The Senate pimps have their madam.

Back in January, I warned about this illegal lover from California. Next month she and her jackals will create their own immigration monster bill, probably a rehash of
Luis Guttierrez's STRIVE Act which allows guest workers after 5 years, $500 and English and American history classes (why bother?) to apply for citizenship. They will then move to conference with the Senate and a bill will go to Bush who will sign away the deed to America.

The idiots in Congress don't seem to get it. The illegals don't want to become Americans, they don't even like Americans. They just want to use this nation for whatever they can beg, borrow or steal from it and then return to their country of origin.

He's Got No Brains To Help Him Talk

Whoever is doing Jimmy's assisted living, please be advised he's off his meds again. Forgetting his own failed and disgraceful one interminable presidency, Carter says Bush's administration is "the worst in history" in international relations. Does the Iran debacle not haunt your every breathing moment, malaise man?

Jimmy babbles on, "The overt reversal of America's basic values as expressed by previous administrations, including those of George H.W. Bush and Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon and others, has been the most disturbing to me." Well, Jimmy you are disturbed, there's little doubt about that.

It's time to put Carter in an "I love myself" jacket and send him back to the weenies gone wild ward.

Shamnesty Strikes

Putting their heads together to make a complete ass of themselves are Homeland Absurdity's Emilio Gonzalez and Michael Chertoff. They are busy pretending to fix our out of control borders while the quislings in Washington prepare to pimp Lady Liberty to millions of illegals.

Contact your senators and tell them to kill the shamnesty bill !

Hat tip to Debbie Schlussel for the Shamnesty sign created by Bob McCarty.

Madman McCain

John McCain, premier graduate of the Alec Baldwin anger management clinic, reached for the four letter word of enthusiasm recently according to the Washington Post. Actually John has given the big FU to conservatives and Americans across the nation with his arrogant amnesty attitude regarding illegals.

The Post article says things erupted when Republican Senator John Cornyn of Texas started voicing concerns about the number of judicial appeals that illegal immigrants could receive. McCain complained that Cornyn was raising petty points and used the words "chicken s***" to describe Cornyn's objections.

Then Cornyn accused McCain of being too busy campaigning for the presidency to take part in the negotiations, which have gone on for months behind closed doors. "Wait a second here," Cornyn said to McCain. "I've been sitting in here for all of these negotiations and you just parachute in here on the last day. You're out of line."

"F*** you! I know more about this than anyone else in the room," shouted McCain at Cornyn. This is typical loose cannon McCain in action. Obviously, we do not want him for president and I am ashamed he represents my home state. Hopefully after another unsuccessful attempt at attaining the White House he will just fade away.

The Loser Lopez Lament

Why wasn't the media offended by George Lopez and his rant over losing his show? According to the LA Times, crybaby Lopez had this little tantrum, "TV just became really, really white again."

What is this crap? The next time an Hispanic gets a show or a special what would happen if a white person said TV is getting browner now? They would get the Imus shuffle, but Georgie gets a free pass on his racist remark.

I've watched Lopez on and off during his career, I don't find him nearly as funny as Carlos Mencia. And, I tried watching his show, but it just wasn't that good. This outburst sounds more like the anger of a sober drunk who still wants to blame the world for his problems. No thanks, George, here's one guy who won't be making your audience a little whiter.

Becoming Complacent

In an exclusive NewsMax interview, FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III says Osama bin Laden and his group desperately want to obtain nuclear devices and explode them in American cities, especially New York and Washington, D.C. He also says the Bureau believes the terrorist leader continues to communicate with al-Qaida cells, some of which remain in the U.S.

Mueller states the threat of a nuclear attack is so real he sometimes wakes up in the middle of the night worrying about that possibility.

Perhaps the most troubling statement is
that Mueller worries that "we are in danger of becoming complacent."

"Al-Qaida is tremendously patient and thinks nothing about taking years to infiltrate persons in and finding the right personnel and opportunity to undertake an attack.

"And we cannot become complacent, because you look around the world, and whether it's London or Madrid or Bali or recently Casablanca or Algiers, attacks are taking place."

Mueller adds the U.S. must remain vigilant. He says our security efforts must "adapt to the new threat landscape."

He then adds: "We are going to be hit at some point. It's just a question of when and to what extent."

The Democrats and their leftwing supporters are responsible for much of the complacency, but the Republicans must shoulder some of the blame also. Those who have failed to secure our borders and want amnesty for illegals all will be responsible if al-Qaida succeds in another attack on our nation. I only hope, if it happens, that the people rise up and drag these traitors from their plush offices and deliver justice on the spot.

This is a group that is supposed to promote economic progress and environmental protection in the world. Zimbabwe is probably the most mismanaged economy in the world with an inflation rate above 2000%.

The only thing more mismanaged than Zimbabwe is the UN itself. Why are we still continuing to support this thirdworld playground for terrorists and madmen?

Baltimore Bozo And Sun

In Baltimore, a Department of Public Works Employee displayed how the left embraces censorship and vandalism all in one outburst. Adding to the mix is the local newpaper showing how the media defends such bad behavior when they agree with the act.

The employee, Robert Murrow, in a pathetic bid at humor, described a paint attack on a Rush Limbaugh billboard by saying, "It looks like they took globs of paint and threw it on his face. It looks great. It did my heart good."

This article in the Baltimore Sun attempts to pass it off as some kind of faux pas, a gaffe they call it. Yet, there is no social blunder here. This is a public employee taking glee in the destruction of someone's property because they differ politically. The newspaper, however, would pass this off as a harmless little quip since it was not one of their precious icons that was offended.

Murrow needs to be disciplined and as for the newspaper, hopefully cancelled subscriptions will take their toll.

Sanctuary City Equals Sleeper Cell

From Fox News comes word that thanks to the "sanctuary cities" concept the three brothers charged in the Fort Dix terror plot were able to live here 23 years illegally. Even though they accumulated 19 traffic citations among them, law enforcement never reported them to Homeland Security.

It took a store clerk to trip them up and I wouldn't be surprised to see him condemned by the ACLU for invading the terrorists' "privacy." The FBI described the scenario as "dodging a bullet." One individual who decided to get involved and not be politically correct saved us from a tragedy.

Why do the majority of Americans need to continue to be endangered so the liberals can feel good about themselves with their sanctuaries for illegals? We need a federal law that will allow us to prosecute those who choose to abet these lawbreakers that threaten the security and sovereignty of our nation. We need government, federal, state and local that will protect American citizens.

In a fit of liberal exaggeration, Barack Obama increased the number of tornado victims in Kansas by 9,988. There were twelve victims, but 10,000 sounded so much more impressive to Obama. Had George Bush made this error the level of press sarcasm would have gone off the charts, but media darling Barack got a pass for being "caught up in the fervor of a campaign speech."

Liberals love victims, even if they are imagined. Their fantasies play better when fueled by the aroma of death and despair. Obama's speech about the National Guard in Kansas and the war in Iraq would be so much more moving if there were thousands of dead bodies waiting to be recovered. The Democrats will stand on corpses to make themselves look taller and obviously Obama is not ashamed to make the climb.

We Can't Create Life In Order To Destroy It, Unless

Rudy Giuliani has me confused. Not really, he is a typical politician and seems to have no problem with ethical contradictions.

During the Republicans' first debate of the presidential campaign, he said it would be OK if the Supreme Court upheld its landmark ruling on abortion rights.

"I hate abortion" and encourage adoption, the former New York City mayor said but added that he "would respect a women's right to make a different choice."

However, on the issue of embryonic stem cell research he said, "As long as we're not creating life in order to destroy it, as long as we're not having human cloning ... there is plenty of opportunity to then use federal funds."

The way I read this is if a woman gets pregnant even though she has no intention of birthing a baby and opts for abortion that's OK. This, despite the fact that she created life with the intention of destroying it. Yet if a scientist does it, that's not OK. Excuse me? No wonder we can't get a simple and fair tax code from these idiots.

Palestinian Politician Prays For Genocide

From The Jerusalem Post comes a story about Sheik Ahmad Bahr, acting Speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council. During a sermon at a Sudan mosque he ranted that America and Israel will be annihilated and called upon Allah to kill Jews and Americans "to the very Last One." His prayer ended with, "Oh Allah, vanquish the Jews and their supporters. Oh Allah, count their numbers, and kill them all, down to the very last one. Oh Allah, show them a day of darkness. Oh Allah, who sent down His Book, the mover of the clouds, who defeated the enemies of the Prophet, defeat the Jews and the Americans, and bring us victory over them."

This is the kind of lunatic Pelosi and Reid want to sit down and talk to so they can find some common ground. What nonsense. It is people like the sheik that we are at war with and they will not let us stand down. They are in this for as long as it takes and we must find leaders with the backbone to fight and eliminate them by any and every means possible.

Unconfirmed Reports

At CNN there are unconfirmed reports that Abu Ayyub al-Masri, the Al Qaeda leader in Iraq has been killed in fighting between rival militant groups.

"We received intelligence reports of al-Masri getting killed in clashes between al-Qaeda in Iraq and other militant groups, at dawn today, in al-Niba'ie in Taji, north of Baghdad," Brig. Gen. Abdul Karim Khalaf said.

According to Khalaf, the reports are based on "very strong intelligence," but he added al-Masri's body has not been seen and stressed that the reported battle was an internal fight between rival militant groups -- no Iraqi troops were involved.

If the vermin have turned on each other so much the better. However, similar reports in the past have, unfortunatley, turned out to be false. Let's wait and see.
