Scrappleface gets serious

Scott Ott of Scrappleface is a humorist who writes with a twisted but painfully true look at the days news.

But this exchange with an editor from the San Francisco Bay area is different, Scott gets serious.

selected bits:

In the immediate aftermath of Katrina, journalists sought someone to blame. They, predictably, found President George Bush was the best scapegoat. But in lashing out, yet again, at their favorite source of all discontent, they missed a bigger target. If anyone “out there” is to be blamed, it is the large, remote, centralized federal government which has become a surrogate father to so many millions of Americans.

....

No, the threat of this system is that it strips a man of what makes him a man, and turns him away from his inner resources, or the inclination to partner with neighbors to solve problems. It humiliates him, blinds him and ultimately cripples him.

....

Success stories are buried. Tragedy is blared from the housetops. It’s a self-reinforcing cycle that further deepens dependence upon the government, and further strips the dignity of the person.

....

The devastating impact of this mindset is the apparent withering of the individual spirit and of community cooperation which have been the hallmarks of this great nation.

Sorry, Gaddafi

Saddam has not been a prisoner of war for over 2 years. He was returned 'home' to the freely elected Iraqi government. And that elected government has tried and convicted him of mass murder.



Libya's Gaddafi says US, Britain must try Saddam


RIPOLI, Dec 29 (Reuters) - Saddam Hussein is a prisoner of war and must
be tried by Iraq's invaders, the United States and Britain, Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi said on Friday. "Saddam Hussein is a prisoner of war ... He's been overthrown by foreign invading forces, not by the Iraqi army or the Iraqi people," Gaddafi said. Iraqi officials said on Friday that Saddam may be hanged within hours, and the prime minister met U.S. officials to determine whether the execution could go ahead
before a week-long religious holiday.
"The countries that captured him should try him -- America or Britain -- because all Iraq is under occupation, including the judges and the lawyers," he told reporters in Tripoli.

Saddam's Last Desparate Chance

Via the AP



Hussein's lawyers filed documents Friday afternoon
asking for a stay of execution. The 21-page request was filed in U.S.
District Court in Washington before Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly.



Attorneys argued that because Hussein also faces a civil lawsuit in Washington, he has rights as a civil defendant that would be violated if he is executed. He has not received notice of those rights and the consequences that the lawsuit would have on his estate, his attorneys said.



"To protect those rights, defendant Saddam Hussein requests an order
of this court providing a stay of his execution until further notice of
this court," attorney Nicholas Gilman wrote.






One hopes the judge quotes Michelle Malkin and answers with "Boo Freak'n Who".



I will say it again: It will be a good thing for Iraq when Saddam swings.

UPDATE:

"Petitioner Hussein's application for immediate, temporary stay of execution is denied," U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly said after a hearing over the telephone with attorneys.

Things that Didn't Happen

Saddam to Swing before Year's End

According to many sources:
Saddam will die before 2006 ends.
Iraqi Prime Minister has signed the death warrant, and under Iraqi law there are no more appeals.

This may cause a brief surge of attacks. But in the long run, Saddam's death will be good for Iraq. It will allow all Iraqis to focus on the future.

UPDATE: Saddam has now died more times in a single day that Castro has in the past year.

the 4th verse

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war's desolation,
Blest with victory and peace, may the Heaven - rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, for our cause is just,
And this be our motto --"In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

A Reminder of What We Fight


We fight the evil in Islam.
We fight their inhuman treatment of women.
We fight to allow people to live their lives without fear.
We fight to allow people to choose their own beliefs.
We fight for freedom.

Merry Christmas, My Friend, Semper Fi

2006 in Review: Islam in a Perpetual Rage

So much for being a religion of peace.
Islam is a Death Cult,
Islam worships death and destruction.

See Michelle for the details of the raging 2006.

See my review below.

No Visuals of Muhammad

Great, then Muslims should not depict their Prophet.
But that restriction does not apply to non-Muslims.

I wish the press was as senstive to other religions.
When you consider the tens of thousands killed in the name of the Prophet, since 9/12/2001.
When you consider that most of those killed were INNOCENT men, women, and CHILDREN.

And now, the cry is: Muslims must be allowed to CENSOR the GLOBAL press or WE WILL KILL.

Europe, it is time to wake up and face the fact that these Muslims want to control the world. They want to force ALL to pray 5 times a day, or die.
They will tolorate no dissent from their edicts...They are Taliban...
They must be stopped

HamNation: FDR's Four Freedoms and Appeasement

Christmas Poem for the Troops

Christmas Poem

'Twas The Night Before Christmas,
He Lived All Alone,
In A One Bedroom House
Made Of Plaster And Stone.

I Had Come Down The Chimney
With Presents To Give,
And To See Just Who
In This Home Did Live.

I Looked All About,
A Strange Sight I Did See,
No Tinsel, No Presents,
Not Even A Tree.

No Stocking By Mantle,
Just Boots Filled With Sand,
On The Wall Hung Pictures
Of Far Distant Lands.

With Medals And Badges,
Awards Of All Kinds,
A Sober Thought
Came Through My Mind.

For This House Was Different,
It Was Dark And Dreary,
I Found The Home Of A Marine,
Once I Could See Clearly.

The Marine Lay Sleeping,
Silent, Alone,
Curled Up On The Floor
In This One Bedroom Home.

The Face Was So Gentle,
The Room In Such Disorder,
Not How I Pictured
A United States Marine.

Was This The Hero
Of Whom I'd Just Read?
Curled Up On A Poncho,
The Floor For A Bed?

I Realized The Families
That I Saw This Night,
Owed Their Lives To These Marines
Who Were Willing To Fight.

Soon Round The World,
The Children Would Play,
And Grownups Would Celebrate
A Bright Christmas Day.

They All Enjoyed Freedom
Each Month Of The Year,
Because Of The Marines,
Like The One Lying Here.

I Couldn't Help Wonder
How Many Lay Alone,
On A Cold Christmas Eve
In A Land Far From Home.

The Very Thought
Brought A Tear To My Eye,
I Dropped To My Knees
And Started To Cry.

The Soldier Awakened
And I Heard A Rough Voice,
Santa Don't Cry,
This Life Is My Choice;

I Fight For Freedom,
I Don't Ask For More,
My Life Is My God,
My Country, My Corps.

The Soldier Rolled Over
And Drifted To Sleep,
I Couldn't Control It,
I Continued To Weep.

I Kept Watch For Hours,
So Silent And Still
And We Both Shivered
From The Cold Night's Chill.

I Didn't Want To Leave
On That Cold, Dark, Night,
This Guardian Of Honor
So Willing To Fight.

Then The Soldier Rolled Over,
With A Voice Soft And Pure,
Whispered, Carry On Santa,
It's Christmas Day, All Is Secure.

One Look At My Watch,
And I Knew He Was Right.
Merry Christmas My Friend,
And To All A Good Night

Air Force
Army
Marines
Coast Guard
Navy


A Marine stationed in Okinawa Japan wrote this poem. The following is his request: PLEASE. Would you do me the kind favor of sending this to as many people as you can? Christmas will be coming soon and some credit is due to our U.S. service men and women for our being able to celebrate these festivities. Let's try in this small way to pay a tiny bit of what we owe. Make people stop and think of our heroes, living and dead,who sacrificed themselves for us. Please, do your small part to plant this small seed.

Senator Johnson suffers a Stroke

My prayers are with Senator Johnson and his family.



From the ArgusLeader:



Rep. Stephanie Herseth, at the conclusion of a Sioux Falls meeting with
board members of the Lewis and Clark water project, called the group
back together around 3 p.m. and announced Sen. Johnson had been taken
to a hospital.



In a shaking voice, she called on South Dakotans for their prayers.



Herseth said she believed it was a severe stroke.

I hope he recovers quickly and completely.

Death Watch: Cuba & Saudi

Pajamas Media is again reporting the rumors of the death of Fidel Castro. I think Fidel has been dead for a couple of months.

Plus

Captain Ed has noted the sudden departure of Prince Turki al-Faisal, Saudi Arabia's ambassador to the United States, flew out of Washington yesterday after informing Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and his staff that he would be leaving the post after only 15 months on the job, according to U.S. officials and foreign envoys. Captain Ed thinks this means that King Abdulllah is almost dead and that Prince Turki al-Faisal may soon be King.

Since death normally comes in threes: Chavez or Chirac? Darn, number 3 was Pinochet of Chile.

Blackfive: Paratrooper or Pilot?


Received this model of a P-51D from my client; makes one wonder whether Blackfive is a Paratrooper or Pilot...Hmmmmmm

Only Reason to Invade France

Must defend Melissa Theuriau.




Blackfive Debate on ROE

over at Blackfive there is a post from a non-commissioned officer (NCO) in Iraq about the Rules Of Engagement (ROE).

This NCO (Sergent or Petty Officer) is not happy with the current ROE his unit operates under. The rules are restrictive, they are in place to prevent casualties to innocent civilians. The rules have been designed to balance the need to destroy those opposed to the freely elected Iraqi government without annoying the civilian population too much.

These restrictive set of rules do increase the risks to our troops.

This Plan ACES the Test

http://ace.mu.nu/archives/207730.php


ACE has a truly realistic and workable plan for the Middle East.

A sample from the Plan:

The warplan should be the opposite of that suggested by Baker. Baker claims we must stop making fighting Al Qaeda the priority, and instead seek peace. That's quite wrong. We should refocus on killing Al Qaeda and Shi'ite militiamen who attack US troops, and let peace seek itself, through the brutal methods by which peace is usually ultimately had.

Go read the entire Plan.

http://ace.mu.nu/archives/207730.php


Now call your Congressman, and your 2 Senators, and tell the White House to back this truly realistic and workable plan.

Iraq Study Group Report

These old farts have forgotten history.

To secure peace in our time, Chamberlin appeased Hitler by surrendering land to Germany. A deal which created a lasting peace....NOT.

ISG recommends surrendering Israeli security for Iraqi stability.
ISG recommends appeasing Iran by allowing them to make nuclear weapons.

President Bush should take this study, piss on it, and flush it.

More Race Baiting in NYC

via Michelle Malkin.

>From Heather MacDonald, City Journal
http://www.city-journal.org/html/eon2006-12-04hm.html


"No, the Cops Didn't Murder Sean Bell
And here's what decent black advocates would say.
4 December 2006
New York's anti-cop forces have roared back to life, thanks to a fatal police shooting of an unarmed man a week ago. The press is once again fawning over Al Sharpton, Herbert Daughtry, Charles Barron, and sundry other hate-mongers in and out of city government as they accuse the police of widespread mistreatment of blacks and issue barely veiled threats of riots if they do not get "justice."
.....
1. "Stop the killing!" Since 1993, 11,353 people have been murdered in New York City. The large majority of victims and perpetrators have been black. Not a single one of those black-on-black killings has prompted protest or demonstrations from the city's black advocates. Sharpton, Barron, et al. are happy to let thousands of black victims get mowed down by thugs without so much as a whispered call for "peace" or "justice"; it's only when a police officer, trying to protect the public, makes a good faith mistake in a moment of intense pressure that they rise as vindicators of black life. (As for caring about slain police officers, forget about it. Sixteen cops-including several black policemen-have been killed since 1999, not one of whom elicited a public demonstration of condolence from the race hustlers.)
....
3. "The police work every day to save lives." If New York City murders had remained at their early 1990s highs, instead of dropping from 1,927 killings in 1993 to 540 in 2005, 13,698 more people-most of them black and Hispanic-would have been dead by last year. They are alive today thanks to the relentless efforts of the NYPD to bring the same level of safety to poor minority neighborhoods as to Greenwich Village and the Upper East Side.
....
After showing up in New York for his time in the Sean Bell spotlight, Jesse Jackson announced: "Our criminal-justice system has broken down for black Americans and young black males. We've marched and marched, bled too profusely, and died too young. We must draw a line in the sand and fight back." "

Go read her entire column at
http://www.city-journal.org/html/eon2006-12-04hm.html
The so-called civil rights leaders, Jackson and Sharpton, only want to be in the spotlight, They don't try to improve the minority nieghborhoods. They ignore 'black on black' crime, cause they must blame 'whitey'.
This problem starts in the homes, are the children raised to take responsibility for their own actions? No, they are trained to avoid their responsibility. (This also happens in rich, white families.)
Will Jackson and Sharpton ever address this? Will they ever place the responsibility on the minority youth and hold them accountable for their actions? I doubt it.
Jackson and Sharpton will continue to erode the authority/ability of the police to protect the innocent whenever an opportunity arises for Jackson and Sharpton to grab the spotlight.
I guess American police should simply stop enforcing the law in minority areas and allow 'black on black' crime to go unchecked.. No, they can not. American police work hard to protect the innocent in all areas.

Via Beth From iFilms



Has a very catchy tune.

Swearing in with the Koran

Congressman-elect Ellison (D-MN) intends to use a Koran for his swearing-in ceremony. He is a Muslim, the Koran is his holiest book.
Okay, fine, no big deal.
So long as Congress Ellison upholds his duty to "Protect and defend the constitution, from all enemies foreign and domestic".

Sixth Grader Tasered At Middle School

from WSBTV.com

Channel 2 was told the incident began after something happened at lunch to spark a verbal argument between two 6th graders. The verbal argument turned physical and a school resource officer with the Jonesboro Police Department says she had to resort to using a taser.
What this report leaves out is: this 6th grade boy weighs 200 lbs. So, this female resource officer (campus cop) had to taser this 200 lb boy to stop him from assaulting a 6th grade girl.
But the same parents who are now complaining about this officer using a taser on this very big kid, a taser which was used as a last resort to protect another student from assault.These will be the same parents who will complain about the lack of learning at the school.

Religion of Death

From the Koran:



SURA 9:29

Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allah, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.



This is a command to Muslims to force all other to submit or die.

Islam is not the religion of peace,

Islam is the religion of death.



To quote Patrick Henry: "Give me liberty, or give me death."



I will not submit.

I will not pay 'Jizyah' (tribute) to Muslims.

Muslims need to mature and learn to live in peace alongside other religions.

Muslims must quit demanding that all others pay homage to them.



Islam is the religion of death, Allah is Satan, Mohammad (Pigs Be Upon Him) is Satan's Prophet, speaking falsehoods.

Race Baiting Again

By Rev. Jessie Jackson



Jesse Jackson Urges Boycott of 'Seinfeld' DVD Box Set in Wake of 'Kramer's' Racist Rant



Monday, November 27, 2006








LOS ANGELES Black leaders on Monday
challenged the entertainment industry, including rappers, to stop use
of the racial slur that Michael Richards uttered in his tirade.

The Rev. Jesse Jackson and others said they will meet with TV networks, film companies and musicians to discuss the "n-word."

"We want to give our ancestors a present," Jackson said at a news conference. "Dignity over degradation."







QUESTIONS for the Rev. Jessie Jackson,

Why have you been silent on the use of the "N-word" by black artists for the last 40 years?

Why do you only complain about its use when a white person uses the term?

Why did you attack Bill Cosby for complaining about the language used by blacks?

When will you lead a boycott of black artist who use the "n-word"?

Rev. Jackson, you and Rev. Sharpton are the two worst racists in this nation. You have campaigned to keep the blacks oppressed.

You demand that all blacks conform to your way of thinking.

You encourage racists assaults on conservative blacks like Michael Steele.

You always demand standards to be lowered to allow more blacks to meet the standard instead of demanding the blacks work harder to meet the higher standard.

The finest fighter squadron in WWII was the all black squadron. They were the best pilots because they were determined to exceed any and all standards imposed by the Army Air Corp, not because they wanted the standards lowered.

They held themselves to a higher standard.



But Rev. Jackson you are a stupid race-baiting racist, determined to keep the blacks under your heel.

Rangel Stuck on Stupid

    "Suppose you were an idiot ... and suppose you were a member of Congress... but I repeat myself."- Mark Twain



Congressman Rangel Said that the only reason the young men and women volunteer to serve in the US Military was because they can not get another job.



Mr Rangel - You are stupid.



Representative Charlie Rangel "I want to make it abundantly clear:
if there’s anyone who believes that these youngsters want to fight, as
the Pentagon and some generals have said, you can just forget about it."



WRONG.

They volunteer because they want to serve.

They volunteer to get the educational benefits.

They volunteer because they are willing to fight to defend this nation and what it stands for.

They volunteer to become a US Citizen.



Those who do volunteer because they can not get another job...either do not qualify for enlistment or they do not make it thru boot camp.



When I served in the fleet in the '80's, yes, there were a few sailors who were not motivated and were consistent problem children, and the ships I served on, were not choice duty, so we have more than are fair share of these problem children,



BUT the vast majority of the sailors were highly motivated individuals who worked hard to improve themselves.

I wish I had more of these motivated individuals in the civilian workforce.

JFK Quotes

I hear it said that West Berlin is militarily untenable - and so was Bastogne, and so, in fact, was Stalingrad. Any danger spot is tenable if men - brave men - will make it so.

*****

In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger. I do not shrink from this responsibility - I welcome it.

*****

Israel was not created in order to disappear - Israel will endure and flourish. It is the child of hope and the home of the brave. It can neither be broken by adversity nor demoralized by success. It carries the shield of democracy and it honors the sword of freedom.

*****

Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.

*****

Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future.

*****

The path we have chosen for the present is full of hazards, as all paths are. The cost of freedom is always high, but Americans have always paid it. And one path we shall never choose, and that is the path of surrender, or submission.

#2 Michigan (11-0) at #1 Ohio State (11-0)

It doesn't get bigger than this, a national title on the line, but
The Game has been overshadowed by the passing of former Michigan coach Bo Schembechler.
Bo, 77 years young, had heart problems. I hope he and the late Ohio State coach Woody Hayes, enjoy The Game together.
Bo was a straight up guy, a Michigan Man to the core, but an honest coach who had winning records at Miami University and Michigan.

Everybody should note the grief and sadness his passing has caused in Columbus, Ohio at The Ohio State University. From The Ohio State University website:

Ohio State mourns death of Bo Schembechler

Beloved Michigan coach will be honored at Ohio State/Michigan game

Bo Schembechler, one of college football's greatest coaches, will be honored with a moment of silence at Saturday's Ohio State/Michigan game.bo schembechler
........

"This is an extraordinary loss for college football," said Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel. "Bo Schembechler touched the lives of many people and made the game of football better in every way. He will always be both a Buckeye and a Wolverine and our thoughts are with all who grieve his loss."

This is at the school where one wall of the locker room reads: BEAT MICHIGAN.

Respectful Rivals - Ohio State and Michigan, the way rivals should be.

Deny Islamists reward in Iraq

by William Shawcross:

George W. Bush, Tony Blair and John Howard are still right: a pullout would condemn the region to horror.

October 27, 2006

IRAQ'S Deputy Prime Minister Barham Salih made an excellent impression in London this week but he was surprised, if not horrified, by the level of hysteria and defeatism that he found in the media.

The bias in much of the coverage of Iraq - in Britain, the US and Australia - helps only those violent extremists who are trying to destroy the country.

It dreadfully discourages all those millions of Iraqis who need our support to build a decent society.

11/11/18 @ 11:11 am - The War to End All Wars Ended with an Armistice.

The War to End All Wars - too bad it became the war which gave birth to greater and more terrible wars.

But today, we thank those who have and ARE defending FREEDOM.
The men and women who risked their lives to protect ours.
My family has served between wars, myself included, but we served our nation.

To my fellow VETERANS.

The Pledge

MSNBC Poll: Should Bush be impeached?

This is what I posted to the comments at Hotair:

NSA Monitoring of Terrorists - LEGAL - Authorized by the AUMF in both 2001 and 2003. These are international calls. NSA can and should be monitoring them. (I can write a better decision than the biased judge in Michigan.)

SWIFT Monitoring of suspected financial transactions - LEGAL - the NYT admitted it was legal. This has stopped terrorism.

Lies leading to war. NONE - The US Senate has investigated and found there were no lies. This doesn’t even include the fact that Senators and Congressmen can request and receive more detailed briefings, they are supposed to provide oversight to our intelligence community. The lazy Senators and Congressmen did not bother.

President Bush has committed no crimes, But go ahead investigate, even go so far as to bring it to a floor vote in the House…It wouldn’t pass, Bush will not be impeached.

The investigations will simply prove Bush pushed the limits of his authority to defend this nation.

Marvin on November 10, 2006 at 9:18 PM

But 87% of the responders at MSNBC - want to impeach President Bush and welcome President Cheney.

The Democratic desperation to get 'payback' for the Impeachment of President Clinton, Who did commit Perjury, Who did have Sexual Relations with an Intern, Some Democrats want to Impeach Bush regardless of whether any crime has been committed or whether the impeachment investigations will increase the danger of a terrorist attack on US soil.

THANK YOU

USMC - 231 years young

Yep, 231 years ago, The colonies decided they needed some Marines. They immediately sent the recruiters to a nearby tavern. The Navy has had 'passengers' ever since.

I for one, am damn glad we have the Marines.

What to do? What to do?

Yes, the Democrats control Congress. but very narrowly.

It only takes 1 Democrat Senator to vote with the Republicans and VP Cheney gets to cast the deciding vote.

Many Democrats had to campaign as moderates to win, which means in 2 years, they will again have to campaign as moderates to hold their seats.

We need to contact our Congresscritters - all 3 of them (YOUR Congressman, and YOUR 2 Senators) Tell them what you want. Keep telling them. Make sure your friends and neighbors are also telling them what to do.

During this upcoming 'lame duck' session - it is vital to press for what we want.

Then in January, the real work begins.

IMO:
Make the Bush Tax Cuts Permanent - I don't want to see a 30% increase in my taxes, I bet your liberal neighbors don't really want to pay higher taxes.

Don't Increase the Minimum Wage - This will REDUCE the number of jobs, causing lower employment, INCREASING entitlement payouts, DECREASING profits, FORECLOSING Small Businesses, LOWERING Tax Revenues.......
A Recession or even a Depression, which the Democrats will try to blame on Bush.

Stay in Iraq, for as long as it takes - A major change in the number of US Troops - up or down - would be a mistake. The trouble in Iraq is concentrated in Baghdad. The SOLUTION in IRAQ will be created by the Iraqis, we must help them arrive at a solution. We must nudge them along in finding the solution, but it must be their solution.

Secure the Southern Border - This is the first step in dealing with illegal immigration. Deportation is a joke if our border is not secure. All other nations build walls/fences/barriers to secure their borders as required.

Airborne

Blackfive reminds us, that on 11/8/65, the 173rd Airborne was ambushed by 1200 Vietcong.
During a night of vicious close combat, 48 Americans lost their lives. (some 400+ Vietcong lost theirs)

I will raise a toast to 173rd Airborne tonight.

Therapy, Republican Style

Sorry Michelle, but therapy may be required.

Under the close supervision of a qualified range master, of course.

Therapy, Republican Style:

Take favorite Firearm(s),
Drive SUV to local gun range,
Expend 200 (or more) rounds,
Police your brass,
Clean your weapon(s),
Return Home,
Stow your Firearms properly,
Get kids out of house,
Seduce your spouse,
Pro-create, to your heart's content!

Now you should feel better,
If not, Pro-create again.

Therapy, Republican Style.

Damn

The GOP Lost.

Standby for impeachment hearings,
not that Bush, Cheney or Rumsfeld have committed any crimes.
Lack of criminal conduct,
Lack of facts to support impeachment,
Will not stop Rep. Rangel, He will never allow facts to stop him.

Standby for higher taxes - The Bush Tax Cuts will expire and
bam, a 30% INCREASE in Taxes.
Standby for higher unemployment, much higher,
Standby for a recession.

Standby for our DEFEAT in Iraq,
Standby to watch millions of Iraqis die,
Standby for oil prices to climb, if you thought $3 a gallon was too high,
just wait till it hits $5 a gallon.

Standby for a bloody world war against Islamists, this will be a war fought in the streets, a war against the western governments who will not defend against Sharia Law, first it was no drinks in the cab....

BUT this gloom and doom CAN BE AVOIDED.

Contact your Congressmen and Senators,
DEMAND they vote for making the Tax Cuts Permanent.
ASK them to SUPPORT FREEDOM in Iraq.
TELL them to not waste time on Impeachment.

Finally,
find a good person to be your next Congressmen.
Start now, to make it happen in 2008.

Mid-Term elections

We can not give up now.

The mid-term is local.

Is YOUR CongressCritter doing what you want them to do?
Is there a better choice on the ballot in YOUR district?

Democrats will 'cut and run' in defeat - destorying all the progress that has been made in Iraq. This will embolden terrorist to increase attacks on the US and our Allies around the globe. We are safer while Al Queda is fighting US in Iraq. To surrender and give them Iraq - would sentence the Iraqi people to Taliban style torture - would allow Al Queda to focus their resources on another '9/11' size or larger attack on Western Civilization.

Democrats will INCREASE taxes beyond just allowing the Bush Tax Cuts to expire. The increase in taxes will cause the economy to crash, which is what the Democrats want before the 2008 election, to improve their chances of getting back into the White House.

See the Lizardarian Manifesto

NPR pimping the Lancet studies

Right now, I am suffering listening to NPR here in Atlanta..They are promoting the Lancet studies - the over inflated numbers of deaths in Iraq, both studies the 2004 and 2006.

Disgusting attempt to sway the election.

Slow week recovering from surgery.

I am recovering from having my gall bladder removed last week. Sorta slows down the blogging.

Dim Media Plan

From ABC News:

Six Days of November Surprises

1. Glowingly profile Speaker-Inevitable Nancy Pelosi, with loving mentions of her grandmotherly steel .


This will encourage Republicans to vote - in droves.


5. Paint groups that run ads or do turnout for Republican candidates as shadowy, extreme, corrupt, and illegitimate; describe their analogues on the left as valiant underdogs, part of a People's Army (with homage to Rich Lowry).

6. Care more about voter disenfranchisement than voter fraud.

Democrats can not count on honest votes.

8. Drop any pretense of covering good news from Iraq (uhm&.) or good news about the economy, including some upcoming positive macro numbers .


Like the MSM ever presented an honest look at the great job President Bush has done for this country.

Republican Plan

Create new jobs - by lowering taxes. Increases tax base, Increases tax revenues.
95% employment.

Dow Jones over 12,000 - New record high.

Aggressively fight terrorism. Monitor international calls involving possible terrorists, monitor international banking transactions, hold dangerous persons at Gitmo, get information from them.

Democrat's have a Plan.

The plan is to Impeach both President Bush and Vice-President Cheney.

But will this leak derail the plan?

Who are Democrats?


Take a good look. This asshole is the new face of the new 21st Century Democrat Party. A party which has become a wholly owned subsidiary of George Soros' empire. If you are a Democrat who doesn't think this way and believe that you can take the Party back from the wackjobs like this then listen up.

YOU CAN'T.

There aren't enough of you. There weren't enough of you to keep a moonbat dilettante political beginner without a real hope of winning the general election from beating Joe Lieberman in the Democrat primary in Connecticut. If you don't hate Jews you don't belong in the Democrat Party any longer. If you don't believe that Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Saddam and Kim are all morally superior to George W Bush you don't belong in the Democrat Party.


Religion of Peace (not)


The photos at Little Green Footballs say it all.

LGF reader “Pawn of the Oppressor” says that’s not an AK-47, but a Persian Mauser—and this wasn’t an unusual event.

It was, and is, used in official Friday prayer ceremonies. The speaker is required to have ‘the weapon of the day’ by his side, according to the tradition of the Prophet (he apparently used a sword).

The speaker at Friday Prayers is required to pack a weapon, so they can preach their "Religion of Peace"? And this according to the tradition of the Prophet (Pigs Be Upon Him) .


Islam is a Death Cult

TSA Ad on YouTube

Fellow Pirate Dread Pundit Bluto is pissed about this appallingly ignorant spot.
Bluto is a former TSA Security screener.
The Ad mocks the "politically correct" screening procedures dictated from Washington DC. Procedures which are not focused on identifying real threats but only giving the impression of security. Procedures which forbid marking "Young Middle Eastern Men" as possible terrorists.
Procedures which force the airport screeners to treat an elderly lady as the same threat as a young Muslim person.
Bluto takes it personally that this ad makes the screeners look like idiots.

Back from Golden event.

A 50th wedding anniversary for my folks...

wow, Dad has put up with Mom for 50 years...
my Dad is very tough and doesn't talk much.

Attention Folks

The election is not, repeat not, a foregone conclusion.

Polls can be wrong....

Democrat Charlie Rangel has already spent the additional taxes that he intends to levy if the Democrats take control of Congress. By the way, these are additional taxes on top of the expiring Bush tax cuts.
Democrats want to destory the US economy, so they can blame Bush for the bad economy and con Americans into electing a Democrat President.

The most important thing is to vote. Don't sit the election out. Go vote, and choose the best of a bad lot.

Wednesday, October 11, 2006

Don't quit when you are winning!

The President and the Republicans in Congress have failed on several counts - border/immigration control, reducing the size of the federal government - but read the list of accomplishments:

I have copied the comment from
http://www.nicedoggie.net/2006/?p=1492#comment-51542

  • Comment by LC HOGHEAD
  • If you are like me, youre getting way past tired of President Bush being blamed for everything including yesterdays thunderstorm, and getting NO CREDIT for any accomplishments. To set the record straight, I give you a PARTIAL list of the presidents accomplishments.Please feel free to pass it on !!!!!!!!

    On Judges alone Bush and the GOP have done more for the Conservative movement then all the pseudos Conservative squealing pigs EVER will do. This list does NOT include the Fence Bill, the Detainee bill NOR the pending NSA Spy bill. It is a list of what Bush and the GOP have got done.

    Abortion & Traditional Values

    1. Banned Partial Birth Abortion � by far the most significant roll-back of abortion on demand since Roe v. Wade.
    ...
    8. Requires states to conduct criminal background checks on prospective foster and adoptive parents.

    ...

    Budget, Taxes & Economy

    1. Signed two income tax cuts, one of which was the largest dollar-value tax cut in world history.
    2. Supports permanent elimination of the death tax.
    3. Turned around an inherited economy that was in recession, and deeply shocked as a result of the 9/11 attacks.
    ...

    Character & Conduct as President

    1. Changed the tone in the White House, restoring HONOR and DIGNITY to the presidency. \
    ...

    Education & Employment Training

    1. Signed the No Child Left Behind Act, delivering the most dramatic education reforms in a generation (challenging the soft bigotry of low expectations). The very liberal California Teachers union is currently running radio ads against the accountability provisions of this Act.
    ...

    Environment & Energy

    1. Killed the Kyoto Global Warming Treaty.
    ...

    6. Part of national forests cleanup: Restricted judicial challenges (based on the Endangered Species Act and other challenges), and removed the need for an Environmental Impact Statement before removing fuels/logging to reduce fire danger.

    ...

    Defense & Foreign Policy

    1. Successfully executed two wars in the aftermath of 9/11/01: Afghanistan and Iraq. 50 million people who had lived under tyrannical regimes now live in freedom.
    ...

    3. Leader by leader and member by member, al Qaida is being hunted down in dozens of countries around the world. Of the senior al Qaida leaders, operational managers, and key facilitators the U.S. Government has been tracking, nearly two-thirds have been taken into custody or killed. The detentions or deaths of senior al Qaida leaders, including Khalid Shaykh Muhammad, the mastermind of 9/11, and Muhammad Atef, Osama bin Laden's second-in-command until his death in late 2001, have been important in the War on Terror.
    4. Disarmed Libya of its chemical, nuclear and biological WMD's without bribes or bloodshed.
    5. Continues to execute the War On Terror, getting worldwide cooperation to track funds/terrorists. Has cut off much of the terrorists' funding, and captured or killed many key leaders of the al Qaeda network.
    ...

    7. Killed the old US/Soviet Union ABM Treaty that was preventing the U.S. from deploying our ABM defenses.
    8. Has been one of the strongest, if not THE strongest friend Israel has ever hand in the U.S. presidency.
    ...

    13. Prohibited putting U.S. troops under U.N. command.
    ...

    5. Told the Congress and the world, "America will never seek a permission slip to defend the security of our country."

    Homeland Security, Border Enforcement & Immigration

    1. *See Government Reform above. Under President Bush's leadership, America has made an unprecedented commitment to homeland security.
    2. Has CONSTRUCTION in process on the first 10 ABM silos in Alaska so that America will have a defense against North Korean nukes. Has ordered national and theater ballistic missile defenses to be deployed by 2004.
    Judiciary & Tort Reform

    1. Is urging federal liability reform to eliminate frivolous lawsuits.
    2. Killed the liberal ABA's unconstitutional role in vetting federal judges. The Senate is supposed to advise and consent, not the ABA.
    3. Is nominating strong, conservative judges to the judiciary.
    4. Supports class action reform bill which limits lawyer fees so that more settlement money goes to victims.

    Politics

    1. His leadership resulted in Republican gains in the House and Senate, solidifying Republican control of both houses of Congress and the presidency.

    2. Signed an EO enforcing the Supreme Court's Beck decision regarding union dues being used for political campaigns against individual's wishes.

    Traditional Values, Compassion & Volunteerism

    1. Endorses and promotes "The Responsibility Era." President Bush often speaks of the necessity of personal responsibility and civic volunteerism. He said, "In a compassionate society, people respect one another and take responsibility for the decisions they make in life. My hope is to change the culture from one that has said, if it feels good, do it; if you've got a problem, blame somebody else � to one in which every single American understands that he or she is responsible for the decisions that you make; you're responsible for loving your children with all your heart and all your soul; you're responsible for being involved with the quality of the education of your children; you're responsible for making sure the community in which you live is safe; you're responsible for loving your neighbor, just like you would like to be loved yourself."
    9. Heeding the words of our own Declaration of Independence, the president laid out the non-negotiable demands of human dignity for all people everywhere. On January 29, 2002, he said, "No nation owns these aspirations, and no nation is exempt from them. We have no intention of imposing our culture. But America will always stand firm for the non-negotiable demands of human dignity." As stated by the President, they are a virtual manifesto of conservative principles:

    * Equal Justice
    * Freedom of Speech
    * Limited Government Power
    * Private Property Rights
    * Religious Tolerance
    * Respect for Women
    * Rule of Law

    Quit being depressed.

    The Economy is doing fine.....

    Yes, it is a struggle in Iraq. But the Iraqis control their future, thanks to US.

    Yes, Republican Senators failed on immigration..House Republicans have tried.

    Yes, North Korean nukes are a major danger - when/if they build a system that works. But, remember the choice
    http://www.captainsquartersblog.com/mt/archives/008265.php

    No more terrorist attacks on US soil, but the enemy is working a friendlier front

    Don't Surrender to Dhimmicrats

    As spineless as the Republicans have been...

    Democrats want to repeal all of Bush's Tax Cuts so they can spend even more than the Republicans. [Note the record Tax Revunues generated by an expanding economy which was created by the Bush Tax Cuts.]

    Democrats want to 'cut and run' from Iraq. They want the terrorists to win, so they can claim victory over President Bush. [Things are dicey in Iraq, but we are succeeding. And if the US stays, the Iraq people will succeed.]

    Democrats want to treat terrorism as a law enforcement problem. Wait till after the attack to investigate and track down the terrorists. [We are currently tracking down terrorists before they can strike again.]

    Democrats complain that we are going it alone in Iraq, ignoring the many other nations who have and are helping the Iraqi people. Democrats complain that we didn't go it alone with North Korea. [Hmmm, should we completely delegate our foriegn policy to the UN?]

    Democrats want to impeach President Bush as revenge for the impeachment of President Clinton. [Who had sex with a White House intern in the Oval Office, and then lied about it. Sorry, that was just his personal business...But when a Republican Congressman has improper communication with former Congressional pages, a congressman who resigned, who was sending these disgusting messages to former pages, these actions did not violate the law or House rules]

    Republicans may be bad, but Democrats are worse.
    Tis a sad state of affairs,
    but,
    Who do you trust to protect your family?
    Who do you trust to protect the economy?

    NoKorean Nuke

    Since North Koreans are only about 1/3 the size of normal, properly fed humans, their little test would equate to 1/10 the size of the Hiroshima bomb.

    Is North Korean TV limited to reruns of "The Mouse that Roared"?

    Banned on YouTube

    heh!
    First they came...

    From Michelle Malkin a stark reminder of the horror we are fighting.

    Early Halloween Fright - Democratic Congress

    Rep Pelosi dreaming of being Speaker - has announced her 100 hour plan.

    First note the short attention span - 100 hours, not 100 days, 100 hours.

    Now note the contradiction:

    Time remaining until 100 hours: Raise the minimum wage to $7.25 an hour, maybe in one step.
    ........
    "We believe in the marketplace," Pelosi said of Democrats, then drew a contrast with Republicans. "They have only rewarded wealth, not work."
    If the Democrats truly believed in the marketplace, they would repeal the minimum wage and allow the market to set the wages...instead of dictating the wage by government jackboots.

    Foley-gate

    Round and round it goes.

    Foley flees Congress...good

    Dems open attack on all Repubs...

    Does Foley need help..no question..yes! he does.

    But, Did Foley break any laws?
    Did Foley break anyHouse rules?
    Other than telling Foley to stop contacting the one page who complained, what should Hastert have done?

    When did the Democrats learn of this? Oct 05?
    http://msnbcmedia.msn.com/i/msnbc/Sections/NEWS/FoleyEmailExchange.pdf

    Liberal vs Conservative

    if a liberal - does an unlawful deed - the liberal blogs will not say a word about it, or they will defend the crime.

    if a conservative - does an unlawfull deed - the conservative blogs will jump all over the guilty and demand accountability.

    Republicans are being stupid. BUT

    Appeasement for the Taliban by Senator Frist.

    Lack of timely action on Foley. by all. Former Rep. Foley should have been confronted and forced to resign by the House leadership a long time ago.

    Lack of Immigration Control/no Border Control. by all.

    Failure to stop leaks. President Bush.

    Failure to get coverage of the positive actions completed by our troops in Iraq and Afganistan. SecDef.

    Failure to control spending. by all.

    Failure to get judges confirmed. by Republican Senators.

    B U T

    Democrats in power would be worse.

    If the Republicans maintain control of the House, but lose control of the Senate...might be a better situation in Washington, DC.

    and it would set-up a Republican victory in 2008.

    97 Reasons to Vote Republican

    from Investor's Business Daily

    However, (97) when it comes to which party has proved more capable in acting to defend and protect Americans from foreign enemies, there is only one choice. From Johnson to Carter to Clinton, virtually all the defense policies and decisions made by Democratic administrations have been unsuccessful. And in many cases, they have unintentionally but materially increased the danger to our national security and the safety of all Americans.

    Tuesday, September 26, 2006

    So what about this

    Over at Blackfive, Grim has posted an article about the budget dispute at the Pentagon. The Army wants more money/men/material.

    Read the comments over there.
    Everybody has gone so negative. "What's with those negative waves.."

    Blaming the Secretary of Defense for the problems in Iraq, calling for more troops in Iraq, saying are troops are at the breaking point, etc...

    1) the President makes the decision, that is the Commander in Chief part of his job description.
    2) the MSM attacks on Rummy, are really attacks on Bush. - Get Bush to fire Rummy, that hammer Bush for what Rummy did.
    3) I recall from history, LBJ did not like the way things were going in Vietnam, so he tripled the number of troops on the ground to 500,000. And the MSM still defeated the USA in Vietnam.
    4) We lost about a dozen soldiers a day in Vietnam. We are losing just over 2 soldiers a day on average in Iraq.
    5) the trouble spots in Iraq - are mainly in a few towns. Most of Iraq is doing okay.

    6) Staying the course - seems to be a good thing,

    but if you have a better plan - speak up.

    Is he Dead?

    A French Newspaper
    citing a 'secret' French report,
    which said Saudi intellegence agents,
    who say their source
    says Osama Bin Laden died on Aug.23rd.

    Since then, the Pakistani government announced a deal with the warlords, which then led to the Paki Army pulling back from the Afgan border regions.

    A leaked picture of a large Taliban funeral, from an armed drone, but the Rules of Engagement prevented the US from attacked the assembled terrorists.

    Is he dead?

    Islam is Death Cult


    Sheikh Abubakar Hassan Malin's fatwa:
    "Whoever offends our Prophet Muhammad should be killed on the spot by the nearest Muslim."

    Islam is not a religion of Peace.
    Islam is a religion of torture.
    Islam is a religion of Death.

    Allah is Satan.
    There is no other way to explain the brutal nature of Islam.
    There is no other way to explain the sentence of death for any who leave Islam.
    There is no other way to explain the worship of death.

    Prophet Muhammad (Pigs Be Upon Him) is a false prophet, speaking for Satan (Allah).
    His is the way of death.
    The demand to submit or die.

    Islam is a Death Cult.

    Remember that 1.2 billion Muslims means there are over 4 billion non-Muslims.
    Weapons are built by non-Muslims.

    This will not be a war between civilizations, because Islam is not Civilized.

    I Support Pope Benedict XVI

    His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI was speaking truth.

    Violence and religion do not go together.
    Especially, violence used to force conversions to your faith, and violence used to 'keep' the faithful.

    Remember, Islam is the only 'religion' which accepts conversions by force.
    And Islam is the only 'religion' which has the death penalty for those who leave the faith.
    That strikes me as Satanic.

    Prophet Mohammed speaks for Allah.
    Allah must be another name for Satan.
    Because only Satan would encourage such evil and inhuman acts of violence.

    I am not a Catholic. I disagreed with many preachings and actions of the Roman Catholic Church. But I do agree with the Pope on this point.

    Code of Conduct

    U.S. Military Code of Conduct

    Below I have posted the Code of Conduct for the U.S. Armed Forces.
    In the spirit of this code,

    I will not surrender to Islam. I have the means to resist. I will help any/all others resist surrendering to Islam. I believe in life, not death.

    *^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*
    The Code of Conduct for U.S. Armed Forces was first published by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in Executive Order 10631 in 1955. It was later amended by President Carter in 1977. It outlines the basic responsibilities and obligations of all U.S. service members to the the United States.

    I


    I am an American, fighting in the forces which guard my country and our way of life. I am prepared to give my life in their defense.

    II


    I will never surrender of my own free will. If in command, I will never surrender the members of my command while they still have the means to resist.

    III


    If I am captured I will continue to resist by all means available. I will make every effort to escape and to aid others to escape. I will accept neither parole nor special favors from the enemy.

    IV


    If I become a prisoner of war, I will keep faith with my fellow prisoners. I will give no information or take part in any action which might be harmful to my comrades. If I am senior, I will take command. If not, I will obey the lawful orders of those appointed over me and will back them up in every way.

    V


    When questioned, should I become a prisoner of war, I am required to give name, rank, service number, and date of birth. I will evade answering further questions to the utmost of my ability.

    Preaching with Swords

    I hope the old saying, those who live by the sword, die by the sword, will apply to Islam.

    Those who preach with the Sword, shall Die by the Sword.

    The inhuman evil of Islam has been known for centuries. (Pope Benedict quoting a 14th century emperor on the evils of Islam and conversion by the sword.)

    IslamicNazis and Democrats

    IslamicNazis scream "Death to those who insult Islam"

    Democrats scream "Death to those who insult Clinton"

    More Demands for Censorship

    from the Democratic Party's own website:

    A Despicable, Irresponsible Fraud <http://www.democrats.org/pathto911>
    Does a major national broadcast network want to stain itself by presenting an irresponsible, slanderous, fraudulent, "docu-drama" to the American public? "The Path to 9/11" mocks the truth and dishonors the memory of 9/11 victims to serve a cheap, callous political agenda. Help keep this propaganda off the air.

    Democrats Threaten ABC's Broadcast License

    from http://reid.senate.gov/newsroom/record.cfm?id=262624&&year=2006&
    Senator Reid's website, the letter sent to Disney concerning ABC.

    The text of the letter, signed by Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid, Assistant Democratic Leader Dick Durbin, and Senators Debbie Stabenow, Charles Schumer, and Byron Dorgan, is below.
    September 7, 2006
    Mr. Robert A. Iger
    President and CEO
    The Walt Disney Company
    500 South Buena Vista Street
    Burbank CA 91521
    Dear Mr. Iger,
    We write with serious concerns about the planned upcoming broadcast of The Path to 9/11 mini-series on September 10 and 11. Countless reports from experts on 9/11 who have viewed the program indicate numerous and serious inaccuracies that will undoubtedly serve to misinform the American people about the tragic events surrounding the terrible attacks of that day. Furthermore, the manner in which this program has been developed, funded, and advertised suggests a partisan bent unbecoming of a major company like Disney and a major and well respected news organization like ABC. We therefore urge you to cancel this broadcast to cease Disney's plans to use it as a teaching tool in schools across America through Scholastic. Presenting such deeply flawed and factually inaccurate misinformation to the American public and to children would be a gross miscarriage of your corporate and civic responsibility to the law, to your shareholders, and to the nation.
    The Communications Act of 1934 provides your network with a free broadcast license predicated on the fundamental understanding of your principle obligation to act as a trustee of the public airwaves in serving the public interest. Nowhere is this public interest obligation more apparent than in the duty of broadcasters to serve the civic needs of a democracy by promoting an open and accurate discussion of political ideas and events.
    Disney and ABC claim this program to be based on the 9/11 Commission Report and are using that assertion as part of the promotional campaign for it. The 9/11 Commission is the most respected American authority on the 9/11 attacks, and association with it carries a special responsibility. Indeed, the very events themselves on 9/11, so tragic as they were, demand extreme care by any who attempt to use those events as part of an entertainment or educational program. To quote Steve McPhereson, president of ABC Entertainment, "When you take on the responsibility of telling the story behind such an important event, it is absolutely critical that you get it right."
    Unfortunately, it appears Disney and ABC got it totally wrong.
    Despite claims by your network's representatives that The Path to 9/11 is based on the report of the 9/11 Commission, 9/11 Commissioners themselves, as well as other experts on the issues, disagree.
    Richard Ben-Veniste, speaking for himself and fellow 9/11 Commissioners who recently viewed the program, said, "As we were watching, we were trying to think how they could have misinterpreted the 9/11 Commission's findings the way that they had." ["9/11 Miniseries Is Criticized as Inaccurate and Biased," New York Times, September 6, 2006]
    Richard Clarke, the former counter-terrorism czar, and a national security advisor to ABC has described the program as "deeply flawed" and said of the program's depiction of a Clinton official hanging up on an intelligence agent, "It's 180 degrees from what happened." ["9/11 Miniseries Is Criticized as Inaccurate and Biased," New York Times, September 6, 2006]
    Reports suggest that an FBI agent who worked on 9/11 and served as a consultant to ABC on this program quit halfway through because, "he thought they were making things up." [MSNBC, September 7, 2006]
    Even Thomas Kean, who serves as a paid consultant to the miniseries, has admitted that scenes in the film are fictionalized. ["9/11 Miniseries Is Criticized as Inaccurate and Biased," New York Times, September 6, 2006]
    That Disney would seek to broadcast an admittedly and proven false recounting of the events of 9/11 raises serious questions about the motivations of its creators and those who approved the deeply flawed program. Finally, that Disney plans to air commercial-free a program that reportedly cost it $40 million to produce serves to add fuel to these concerns.
    These concerns are made all the more pressing by the political leaning of and the public statements made by the writer/producer of this miniseries, Mr. Cyrus Nowrasteh, in promoting this miniseries across conservative blogs and talk shows.
    Frankly, that ABC and Disney would consider airing a program that could be construed as right-wing political propaganda on such a grave and important event involving the security of our nation is a discredit both to the Disney brand and to the legacy of honesty built at ABC by honorable individuals from David Brinkley to Peter Jennings. Furthermore, that Disney would seek to use Scholastic to promote this misguided programming to American children as a substitute for factual information is a disgrace.
    As 9/11 Commission member Jamie Gorelick said, "It is critically important to the safety of our nation that our citizens, and particularly our school children, understand what actually happened and why - so that we can proceed from a common understanding of what went wrong and act with unity to make our country safer."
    Should Disney allow this programming to proceed as planned, the factual record, millions of viewers, countless schoolchildren, and the reputation of Disney as a corporation worthy of the trust of the American people and the United States Congress will be deeply damaged. We urge you, after full consideration of the facts, to uphold your responsibilities as a respected member of American society and as a beneficiary of the free use of the public airwaves to cancel this factually inaccurate and deeply misguided program. We look forward to hearing back from you soon.
    Sincerely,
    Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid
    Assistant Democratic Leader Dick Durbin
    Senator Debbie Stabenow
    Senator Charles Schumer
    Senator Byron Dorgan

    Democrats Demand Censorship

    How dare ABC air anything which makes Democrats, especially Bill Clinton and crew look bad? The Democrats cannot allow that.....So they want to censor the program.

    Which party is the greatest danger to our liberties as Americans? Read the links below.

    ABC issued a defense Thursday of its controversial miniseries "The Path to 9/11," which has come under fire from members of the Clinton administration.

    The network released a statement saying that the five-hour telefilm, which airs Sunday and Monday nights, is not meant to be a documentary but a "dramatization" of the events leading up to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. .....

    http://www.variety.com/VR1117949675.html
    Bill Clinton loyalists are demanding wholesale changes to the upcoming miniseries -- and while ABC is making some snips, the alterations, insiders say, may not please the Dems.
    But a bombshell decision may happen anyway: Sources close to the project say the network, which has been in a media maelstrom over the pic, is mulling the idea of yanking the mini altogether.
    As for specific criticisms -- and changes -- the original mini contained a scene in which then-National Security Adviser Sandy Berger declines to give the CIA authority to capture or kill Osama bin Laden, even when CIA operatives know where the al-Qaeda leader is. ....

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Amid an election-year debate over who can best defend America, U.S. congressional Democrats urged ABC on Thursday to cancel a TV miniseries about the September 11 attacks that is critical of former Democratic President Bill Clinton and his top aides.
    Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid of Nevada denounced the five-hour television movie, set to air in two parts on Sunday and Monday nights, as "a work of fiction."
    Reid and other leading Senate Democrats wrote to Robert Iger, president and CEO of ABC's corporate parent, the Walt Disney Co., urging him to "cancel this factually inaccurate and deeply misguided program."
    Chronicling events leading to the September 11 attacks, the movie suggests the Clinton administration was too distracted by the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal to deal properly with the gathering threat posed by Islamic militants. ....

    Thursday, September 7, 2006
    Washington, DC - Urging him to cancel the grossly inaccurate upcoming miniseries The Path to 9/11, the Senate Democratic Leadership today sent the following letter to Disney President and CEO Robert Iger. Disney's subsidiary ABC erroneously claims the misleading miniseries is based on 9/11 Commission report and is planning to air it on September 10 and 11. Shockingly, the network is also planning to use the program as a teaching tool through Scholastic, potentially misinforming thousands of children about the most important event in recent American history.

    Path to 9-11

    ABC has this 2 night special this weekend, a docudrama of the events leading up to the attack on America 9/11/01.

    The liberals are furious that ABC mentions that President Clinton had chances to capture/kill Bin Laden but opted not to. ABC will discuss the missle strikes on the empty terror training camps.

    If you doubt the accuracy of this program, Google has your answer. the new Google News Archive. YOu can find the headlines from 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000 - How President Clinton was concerned about Bin Laden and the ineffective attempts, including Sudan's offer to hand him over to the US.
