Totally Disgusting

I have tried to sit here and express my thoughts regarding this tasteless act of vandalism. But each time I started, my rage and anger rose to such an extent I had to quit and restart. So without going into a rant on this, I am going to let you read it and come to your own conclusion. What I will say is, whoever conspired to commit this act should be taken out and hung up by their...

Vandals Deface Sign Honoring Soldier

CHESHIRE, Mass. - The family of a Green Beret who was one of the nation's first casualties in the war on terror in Afghanistan was outraged after discovering vandals had defaced a sign honoring the Soldier with anti-war graffiti.

"I felt like I was going to vomit," said Michael Petithory, the brother of Army Sgt. 1st Class Daniel Petithory.

9/11 Commish Bob Kerry sees Ties to bin Laden

Two years ago, the 9/11 Commission came to the premature conclusion that Saddam and Osama Bin Laden "had no operational relationship." Now from one of the members on the Commission, comes an eye opening remark, so listen up Democrats and those that "couldn't make the connection."

"This is a very significant set of facts," Kerrey told the New York Sun.

"I personally and strongly believe you don't have to prove that Iraq was collaborating against Osama bin Laden on the September 11 attacks to prove he was an enemy [of the U.S.] and that he would collaborate with people who would do our country harm," the Nebraska Democrat explained.

Hillary the Theologian

Queen Hillary's recent comments on the immigration bill going to the senate have aroused many in the blog world. Both republican and democrat alike. For the Democrats, they now think that religion should come to the front lines in their fight over immigration. With Hillary's comments "certainly not in keeping with my understanding of the Scriptures, because this bill would literally criminalize the Good Samaritan and probably even Jesus himself." ...leading the way. Where was this push for religion when the Ten Commandments issue was before the Congress? It seems that the democrats, a few years ago were all a-twittered about the illegal aliens and that the president was doing nothing about it. But as we know this was not true. The Democrats have done everything in their power to squash this bill and push a more liberal bill in its place.

Joseph Farah, founder and CEO of WND has placed a spetacular piece in the WND website that bears reading. It would seem that Queen Hillary has caught the "flip-flop-itist" that ran rampant in the Kerry campaign in 04. Changing her direction as we move closer to the election in November and possibly building her connection with the Hispanic community, is Hillary trying to gain votes for the 08 elections?

New Site For Carter Censure Petition

Senator Russ Fiengold has been on the rampage to get George Bush censured at the minimum, and possibly impeached. Most of his lackies have been staying away from this issue due to the fact that most Americans agree with the president on the matters of NSA and their secret wiretaps. However, I have yet to see the Democrats or the MSM step out to censure former President Carter.

Yes, Carter. Why should he be censured by the Senate? There is a mound of reasons, but to mention a few: support of President Chavez in Venezuela, Kim Il Jong of N. Korea, Fiedel Castro, making comments that are detrimental to the troops in harms way. Jimmy Boy had one of the worst presidency's in the history of the US. His failure to deal with Iran during his term concerning the hostages, was indeed the low spot in his career.

Carter has validated many elections in foreign countries. Elections that were illegal and smeared with ballot box stuffing, intimadation, violence and fraud. Elections in which the majority of the voters in the country came out in protest claiming that the numbers didn't match up. Yet there was Jimmy saying that everything was done in line of the rules and therefore he would validate them. His straight forward criticism of this president openly on foreign soil is outrageous. No other president has ever done this and was allowed to continue. But does Bush counter with a smear of the Carter adminsitration? No.

I urge all or go to this website set up with the help of Melanie Morgan. I would also encourage you to read her posts that highlights, to a great extent, in detail actions far worse than those even thought of by the Bush administration. If you want to censure Bush, then you MUST censure Carter, for he teeters on the brink of being a traitor.

Patriot Guard Riders Numbers Grow

The Patriot Guard Riders numbers have grown by leaps and bounds since their inception last year. At last count their numbers have reached over 20, 000 with riders and supporters across America, with 15,000 signing up in the last seven weeks alone, according to Kurt Mayer. As you know, the riders attend funerals of fallen heros to provide a safeguard against protestors, thus allowing the family and friends attending the funeral a little peace and privacy saying their last goodbyes.

Hats off to the Patriot Guard Riders and their efforts to support our troops and their families. If you would like to join this outstanding group, visit their website at You don't have to ride a motorcycle to be a member just provide what support you can for an honorable cause.

It Must be a Two Way Street

I have no problem with learning more about the Prophet Mohammad. I think that it would give a clearer understanding to what the Muslim teachings are all about. However, I wonder how willing the Muslim are to learn more about Christianity. Are they as willing to learn from us and then take their learnings back to the Middle East and help spread our ideology? If no, then there probably isn't much need to trying to indoctrinate those of the west. It must be a two way street. They too must come to the understanding of what our beliefs have taught us. We too come under a daily barage from the ACLU regarding the symbol of the cross on anything that might be considered governmental. From the Ten Commandments to the cross, christians face this belittling of their religon every day. Again, let them bring their religious knowledge, but let them learn as well, otherwise it will be a trip in futility and neither side will gain from the knowledge presented.

Top Muslims to press for educating West on Prophet

(Reuters)22 March 2006

MANAMA - Some 300 Muslim scholars and clerics will meet in Bahrain on Wednesday to formulate ways to educate the West about the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) after cartoons of the Prophet sparked outrage in the Muslim world.

In the first meeting of its kind since the furore over the cartoons erupted earlier this year, prominent Muslim leaders including Qatar-based Sheikh Youssef Al Qaradawi and Saudi Sheikh Salman Al Awdah are also expected to renounce violent protests in which at least 50 people were killed.

To Darfur or not to Darfur, that is the Question...

Queen Hillary Clinton wants President Bush to send help to Darfur. It would seem that since Slick Willie took no action on stopping the genocide in Rwanda, she is urging the President to do more than we have to stop the genocide taking place in Darfur. Claiming that she was misled regarding the intervention in Iraq, she wants a coalition of the willing to move into Darfur with ground troops and air coverage to form a "no fly zone."

Queen Hillary, says that Bush should meet with the UN, NATO and other world leaders to establish a plan for the region. Mrs. Clinton is citing Sen. Joe Binden's "expert military opinion" claiming that the "no fly zone" could be enforced with no more than a dozen to a dozen and one half planes and a few AWACs. Hillary is requesting this action in reference to UN Security Council Resolution 1591.

So basically what we have here is another failure of the Clinton administration, that the US would have to go into and clean up, under the guise of the United Nations. An organization that has already proved that they are a failure when it comes to enforcing their own resolutions without the backing of the US. Remember that the US is the one that has bailed the UN and NATO out of numerous situations in the past, including Bosnia, which the UN did not sanction while her hubbie was president.

Queen Hillary seems to be more enthusiastic about this infiltration into Darfur, but wait, wasn't she just as enthusiastic about the intervention into Iraq three to four years ago? Did she not stand behind the president supporting him? Claiming that she was duped into following the President into Iraq is pure hogwash. Why, for the simple fact that while her husband was in the White House, he had aspirations of striking against Saddam because of (can you guess what it is) Saddam's possible acquisition of nuclear material and WMDs. Materials that Clinton was sure that Saddam had acquired and was against the Security Councils resolutions dating back to Bush I. Queen Hillary had access to this information then and she herself believed the information being provided by the intelligence community.

Now consider if you will the following hypothesis. Sudan and Chad are muslim countries. Darfur is located along the borders of Chad and Sudan. The UN has, for the past seven or eight years, sent UN troops to this region to help relieve tensions in the region. This "relief" has proven more harmful than helpful, with vast reports of violations being committed by the "relief forces" including rape and pilferring. Now the United States is called upon to send forces into the region to assist. Knowing that the US is not the most liked or respected nation in the Middle East or Eastern Africa would this be a wise decision. After all look at the slams we are getting for being in Iraq. With claims that the war continues there BECAUSE of US presence. Then remember back to Somolia. Another UN led intervention in Eastern Africa. A simple food relief mission, turned totally disasterous. Why? Becasue the UN could not enforce its sanctions an relief efforts. Yes, US presence would be deeply appreciated in this region. Be it in the air or on the ground.

Also take into consideration the following facts. The "War in Iraq" also started with the simple "no fly zone". However, the continuation of our planes being fired upon and violations of the zone by Saddam led to far greater action being taken by the US. A no fly zone that Slick Willie was more than willing to enforce and if violated, actions were taken by the firing of missles on Iraq radar sites and other targets of opportunity. Now, she wants us to preform the same missions over Darfur. My opinion is that, if we take this action, what will happen the first time that American pilots are shot down by the waring factions in Durfar, and the pilot is captured, tortured and dragged through the streets as were the brave Marines in Mogadishu. I can tell you, with a no nonsense president like Bush, there would be a major escalation of troops on the ground and again the UN would do nothing to enforce its own resolutions. Where would that lead us? Either a total recall of forces or a total retaliation (as was Iraq).

The thing people seem to forget about Iraq is the fact that the War (Desert Storm) never really ended. There was an agreement reached between the Iraqi Government and the Coalition under the US. A truce if you will. But no end or victory was ever declared by the surrendering of Iraqi Forces or government. So in actuality, OIF was just a continuation of the first war. Why, for violations of numerous UN resolutions. Now we are being asked to come in a save the UN (Useless Nations) butt again. This with the Congress crying that our military is "stretched to far" and would be unable to handle any other disruptions that might occur else where in the world.

Queen Hillary's own words suggest or refer to the escalation of ground forces or other action, "...that continued international consideration of their grievances depends directly upon their immediate cessation of violence against civilians." What is even more striking is the following comment in her letter to Bush, "As you know, I and other members of the U.S. Congress recognized the genocide in Darfur in July 2004. In September 2004, then Secretary of State Colin Powell did the same. A few months later, in January 2005, a U.N. International Commission of Inquiry established by U.N. Security Council Resolution 1564 also found strong evidence of genocide in Darfur. In February 2006, Secretary of State Rice said that “genocide was committed and in fact continues in Darfur.” Even so, international agreement on the existence of genocide has little connection to the need or basis for action. Say what? If the existance of genocide is not what we would be going in for what would be? Saddam conducted mass genocide, on various occassions, and what did the UN do? Nothing. Who did? The US and the "coalition of the willing." The same outcome will take place in Durfar. The US will foot the bill and the UN will blame it all on us.

No, Queen Hillary, I don't agree with sending any troops or planes into this region until the UN can get its act together. We are providing humanitarian aide, money to keep the UN going and political support to the region. Unless the UN can guarantee the safety of the US Forces I don't see the need in taking other actions. Remember that the UN withdrew from Iraq because of one simple attack on their headquarters claiming that the region was "unsafe" for the continuation of their presence in the region. Since the US could not provide a "safe atmosphere" for the UN, they pulled out. So now the shoe is on the other foot, if they (UN) cannot provide for the safety of the US we shouldn't put ourselves into a situation that could escalate into a much broader intervention. Does this sound like 2003 all over again? With the UN whining about the proposed action of the US going into Iraq.

After all, what would Cindy Sheehan and her followers think of you (Hillary) if this action was carried out and more of our brave troops were injured or killed. And this time it would be at the beaconing of you and your cowering buddies on the HILL. After all your popularity with the Hollywood elite has sufferd terribly with you backing the war in Iraq.

OK, I did it again. I went on another ranting. Probably got twisted a little along the way with other remarks that may or may not have had anything to do with the title, but this ladies gull just really hit me at the wrong time. Most of the time I try to ignore her or just laugh it off as "you got to be kidding me". There is just something about her that when she makes requests like this, well, it just sends me into a total tail spin and I end up taking the downward plunge into self expression and not so much the facts. Anyway, there it is and the link below will take you to Queen Hillary's Senate Website for the actual letter that was sent to Bush. You decide. All remarks and or critisims are welcome. I have my IRON UNDERWEAR on for this one. Those who have served know what I mean about the IRON UNDERWEAR.

Reporting from the Field, not a Hotel Room Balcony

Hats off to Bill Hemmer, of Fox News, for going out in the "battle zone". Bill Hemmer did his daily report today from Camp Fallujah, outside the Iraqi city of Fallujah. As most know it is one of the hot spots in Iraq, located about fifty miles west of Baghdad. For some time now one of the major complaints from readers and viewers is that they (MSM) are not reporting fairly and are reporting from the comforts of their hotel balconies not in the field. When the War in Iraq started three years ago, it started with "embedded" reporters with the units going in to Iraq, giving live reports and updates about the march to Baghdad. However, since the fall of Saddam and his capture, most reporters do not go out with the soldiers on the ground. Although the reporters are free to go out with the troops, they would rather tell a partial story as relaid to them by other sources.

What most media's use for their reports are file footage, mostly from the invasion in 2003, which if taken for truth would implie that the soldiers are at war all the time. However, according to US Army Captain Dan Sukman, there are times that there is very little to do except sit around and watch DVDs. Yes, the troops still go out and patrol, but now they patrol with the Iraqi Police and soldiers. More and more of the patrolling functions are being done by the Iraqi's not the American soldiers. Captain Sukman has a Daily Diary that is published on the Fox News website. Sukman tries to bring forth a true light about what is taking place in Iraq by telling it from a soldiers view point and answering emails that are sent to him from viewers and readers.

In fact according to Captain Sukman, footage from or for the latest action "Operation Swarmer" was actually taken from the file footage from Operation Iraqi Freedom I. He stated that this was a major air assault, but what you saw in the pictures and on the media was tanks and trucks. Capt. Sukman sounded off with his displeasure that more live reports from reporters within the units is not now taking place.

But back to the hats off to Fox News reporter Bill Hemmer. For months now we (Bloggers) have been urging reporters to get off their rumps and go where the action is. The reporting is much more factual and accountable when this is done, plus you get to hear it from the troops themselves. Not really what Sen. Murtha would want you to believe. Grant it, there will still be the left twist on the reporting, but at least it will be LIVE and not second hand as passed down from God knows what kind of source. Fox has again stepped up where other News reporting sources have fallen off. Thanks to Captain Sukman for his Diary and to Fox for going the extra mile to bring you fair and balanced reporting. Wake up MSM, or you will become as the dinosaurs, EXTINCT.

The Reeling in of a President, or shut your mouth unless you have my permission

A roll back through time will remind all of us of the time that former President Clinton was in the limelight. His actions or failure thereof, were in the daily news papers on a regular basis and especially his infamous fling with Monica Lewinski. Remember how when this happened "Slick Willie" and the Democratic Party gathered around him to consoul him and offer support? Remember when Hillary put him on the couch because of his actions? Well, many have said that Hillary has "forgiven" him and all was right with the world. Or so it appeared.

Recently, "Slick Willie" was caught with his hand in the cookie jar again. Not with a woman, but the Dubai Ports Deal. While Hillary was throwing a hissy fit about Bush backing the ports deal, Willie was advising them how to "sell the deal". When the press and many bloggers caught wind of it they put it in their news review articles. Well, actually more bloggers than the news media. Anyway, when Hillary found this out she evidently gave Willie a tongue lashing. Slick is still in the dog house with Hillary over his affair and now it seems that Hillary is reeling in the leash that Willie is on.

Now more things are coming to light, according to the NY Daily News, March 20 edition, Hillary is really tightening the leash that her illfated husband is already on. Slick will no longer be able to do anything without Hillary's staff and her approving it. Hmmmm...I guess this means that Slick won't be making anymore speeches in foreign countries for money without Hillary writing the speech for him. I also assume that this will limit Slick's public appearances unless, according to the article, it is for Hillary's benifit. Hillary still plans on using Slick for fund raising events for her campaign efforts, but his personal appearances will deinitely be drawn closer to what Hillary wants.

To boost Hillary's Oval Office bid, Slick will be hosting several get-togethers around the country and is planning town hall meetings to talk about some of the success stories from what Hillary likes to call "our administration." But the tone of these meetings will be determined by Hillary or her staff. Amazing how a former president, one that was "loved and cherished" by so many for the eight years in office, is now on a leash. What ever happened to freedom of speech? Is Hillary now violating Slicks civil rights or better yet his Constitutional rights? It kind of makes you wonder what Slick's roll will be when/if Hillary makes a successful bit for the White House in 2008. Will Slick be swept under the carpet? Will he be reduced to redesigning the White House, as many presidents wives have done? Oh woe is me, what will become of the one-time most loved president? Hey Slick, stand up for your rights, with Hillary's approval of course.

A Very Important Letter to the Editor

I came across this interesting "Letter to the Editor" in the Stars and Stripes today. On a day to day basis we hear from the MSM of how our troops are loosing faith in our Pressident and feel the need to come home instead of stay the fight in Iraq and Afghanistan. Air Force Capt. Reuven M. Yatrofsky I think bests sums up some personal feelings regarding President bush, the War on Terror and Cindy Sheehan.

It strikes me that this AF Captain brings forth a truth that many have said in the past on Blogs and in certain Media outlets (mostly local newsgroups) but is usually lost in just a 5 second bit in the news. Please take a moment to contemplate the words and try to feel the "feelings" being presented by Captain Yatrofsky. I know that they are echoed many times over from many in the military. Maybe those of us (civilians), that don't wear the uniform need to take a closer look at what our fighting men and women are doing and show a little more appreciation.

Where are the flags on the front porches that were there after 9/11? I fly mine proudly in support of our troops and our president. Let's bring back that feeling of unity again. After all we are Americans aren't we?

Proud to serve under Bush

Are we fighting a war on terror or aren’t we? Was it, or was it not, started by terrorists who brought war to our shores on Sept. 11, 2001? Were people from all over the world, mostly Americans, not brutally murdered that day, in downtown Manhattan, across the Potomac from our nation’s capital and in a field in Pennsylvania? Did nearly 3,000 men, women and children die a horrible, burning or crushing death that day, or did they not?

Shall some continue to bury their heads in the sand and be blind, deaf and dumb to the truth and reason for this war? I am proud to be serving in the military, and if I die in the war, I do not want a “Cindy Sheehan” disgracing my support and love for protecting my home, family and loved ones in our America, by protesting the reason for my death. Everyone in the military had a choice to join and protect their country, or to remain a civilian and not put their life on the line for others. If they are in the military, it’s because they want to be and they knowingly pledged to fight for America and to protect her.

I am proud to serve under a commander in chief who upholds moral values and doesn’t turn and run, tail tucked, when terrorists come blasting through America’s doors. I will defend America until the day I meet my maker.

Air Force Capt. Reuven M. Yatrofsky, Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, Germany

Answer the question PLEASE!!!

Ok, the midterm elections are right around the corner. The Democrats are ranting and raving about how the Bush Administration has been a failure in the war in Iraq, the War on Terror, lied to America, spied on Americans illegally, ran up the deficit, failed on Katrina and pretty much has no plan anywhere to solve anything. Scandals have the republican party in turmoil and their leadership breaking away from the president. Really?

Ok, I'll go along to a certain extent that there are some lower rumblings coming from within the empire. But...what is the plan for the Democrats? What are they going to do to turn all this around? Many questions have been asked yet little to no response has been given, at least a responsible one. Dicki Durbin is more proof that the Democrats still can't get it together as a "team". During Durbin's visit to "Fox News Sunday", he was asked several times by host Chris Wallace what the Democratic Party's Plans were and how are they better than that of the Bush Administration.

With each question presented to Durbin regarding their (Dem's) plans, Durbin skirted the issues on each occasion by diverting to off the wall rantings ranging from again the presidents failures, being in a hard place to start with, to accountability with this president. But not once did he answer the question. In fact at the beginning of the show Durbin stated, "I'll be very specific," replied Durbin, D-Ill. "But I can tell you, to start with, failed policies such as the one we have in Iraq gives us few options. And we understand that. We've been painted into a corner in this situation." And the answer was?

Carter's national security adviser, Zbigniew Brzezenski, stated " his own party, of political desertion on Iraq. "Democratic leaders have been silent or evasive. They have not offered an alternative to the war in Iraq. It's easy to criticize," Dem's have been on dozens of talk show (Morning News Programs) and have yet to bring forth a clear and concise plan for winning in 2006 or 2008. The only thing that they can say is Bush this, this administration...that, and never getting around to answering the question. It would seem that the Dem's are or have taken lessons from Sen John "unfit for command" Kerry. Dip and dodge the question and when continually confronted on an issue change your mind on every other question about it. Yep, worked great for Kerry didn't it.

The honest truth is the Democrats don't have a plan. They just continually spin their wheels hitting the "Morning" Talk shows, trying to bash Bush and blame him for everything. By the way, have you heard that the Democrats can now positively link the Bird Flu to Bush? Yep, it is true. Bush is the originator of the Bird Flu and the Democrats can prove it. Just as they have "proven" everything else. The democrats are in such a stupor that they don't even realize that they had the Bush Administration on the ropes and the count stopped at 8. Why, because they have no plan. They keep bashing the Medicare program, social security, welfare, lack of funding, government failure in the Katrina response and the list goes on. But when confronted about their plan, what has been their answer? We will make our plan known in a few days, ...weeks, ....months...years. Do they really have one or are they planning on winning just on the Bush bashing alone. From the sounds of Sen Durbin, they have nothing to offer up on the table that would remotely show that they are a party willing to step up to the plate.

Durbin's wafflings are just more carry overs from the Kerry 2004 Presidential run. I will tell you what you want to hear, but understand that we really don't have a plan, so vote for us anyway. The elections are fast upon us. the Democrats thought they had taken the wind out of Bush's sails. But alas, as with all other attempts, they have failed to bring this administration to its knees. And as much as I hate to say it, we have given them pretty much a clean shot every time. So what happened? Complete and total lack of coordination in the party. Pelosi is stating remarks quite opposite of Howard Dean. Democrats aren't communicating with each other. They may make some gains in the battles, but their main objective shall fail as it did in 2003. After all, to succeed you have to have a leader. As of yet none have risen to the challenge with in the Democratic Party. Not even her Majesty, Queen Hillary. they like to flap and jab, but can present nothing to answer the leering question, "WHAT IS YOUR PLAN?"
