Cashill has part 3 in a series of articles about Sandy Berger posted at his site. The articles cover the reasons why Berger would steal documents from the National Archives, a possible cover-up of TWA FLT 800, and many other things involving government officials, including the 9-11 Commission.

It's helpful to read the previous two articles before reading this one, but if you start with this one, you'll want to read the others.

Joe Biden is doing his best to end any and all chances to win the White House in '08. Not that he had much of a chance, anyway. However, when statements like this fall out of your mouth, don't expect to be changing your address to 1600 Pennsylvania:

Mr. Biden is equally skeptical—albeit in a slightly more backhanded way—about Mr. Obama. “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” he said. “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”

Clean?? Ouch.

Aaron at LLP has more on Biden.

Biden responds to Obama comments:


"Each day after dawn, hundreds of Venezuelans gather outside the Spanish Consulate in Caracas, hoping to get papers allowing them to flee the South American country for Spain."

Life in Venezuela doesn't appear too promising to some. According to a Newsmax article, thousands are packing up their belongings and heading for the exits. Don't blame them.



Radio Patriots and Michelle Malkin are posting about the "Citizens Report on Iraq." I'm sure we can all agree this won't be reported in the MSM.

Fortunately, Andrea Shea-King will be discussing the report on today's show. Details at Radio Patriots.



"You must be single minded. Drive for the one thing on which you have decided. You will find that you will make some people miserable; those you love and very often yourself. And, if it looks like you are getting there, all kinds of people, including some whom you thought were loyal friends, will suddenly show up doing their Goddamndest, hypocritical best to trip you up, blacken you, and break your spirit. Politicians are the worst; they'll wear their country's flag in public, but they'll use it to wipe their asses in the caucus room, if they think that it will win them a vote."--General George S. Patton, Jr.

***In life, this quote rings very true. People sometimes will go to extraordinary lengths to slow you down. Some do it openly; some will operate against you behind the scenes. Some are envious of your accomplishments or of what you're going to accomplish; others have issues of self-confidence.

Then there's that "special" person who's in congress. Political gain is the goal and it will be reached at any cost. President Bush is all too familiar with the political creature who will do whatever it takes to impede his progress. No matter what he does, these people will most certainly do their Goddamndest to get in his way, to trip him up.

After watching Charles Rangel on O'Reilly last night, this quote came to mind.

I stole the cartoon from Dr. Sanity. It says it all. Since I ripped-off her 'toon, I suppose I should invite you to read the post that goes with it. She reminds us of the myths that are continually thrown at us, then she delves into the inner workings of a left thinking mind. Continue reading here.

Hat tip to "Hillary Needs A Vacation" for the video. It's of Hillary meeting with Code Pinko, where she explains why she's supporting the invasion of Iraq--supporting Bush. She was adamant about the threat Saddam presented--based on her "careful review" of intelligence, ect. At the end of the vid, the Pinkos turn on her, sending Hillary into her oh-so-familiar shrill mode. Now that the political winds have shifted, Hillary has adjusted accordingly. The woman is totally full of crap.

The Sandy Berger case is just too good. Can't leave it alone--too juicy. This story, I think, has all the makings of a full-blown scandal that has political consequences that could shake the foundations of Hillary's campaign, not to mention poor Bill's legacy. I'm just waiting for a dead body or two to show up.

Anyway, I've been holding out hope that this story would take hold somewhere in the media, spread, and force the Justice Department out of its slumber. To my surprise, that very thing could be happening right now.

The WSJ has an article about Berger's case and it appears that a group of republicans in congress have taken it upon themselves to force the Justice Department's hand:

"But the report did catch the attention of Rep. Tom Davis, the ranking Republican on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, who last month, while he was still committee chairman, finished his own probe of the Berger affair. This week he and 17 other top Republicans wrote to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales to detail the deficiencies the committee has found in the Justice Department's handling of the Berger case. They specifically asked him to administer the polygraph examination that Mr. Berger agreed to but was inexplicably never given."

Just when you thought things couldn't get any more dangerous, they do. From the NYT:

BAGHDAD, Jan. 28 — "Iran’s ambassador to Baghdad outlined an ambitious plan on Sunday to greatly expand its economic and military ties with Iraq — including an Iranian national bank branch in the heart of the capital — that will almost certainly bring Iran into further conflict with American forces who have detained a number of Iranian operatives here in recent weeks."

Last week, Newt Gingrich testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, which is chaired by Senator Biden. In his testimony, Gingrich discusses the problems we currently face in the war, problems that, he says, have been known for a couple decades but have yet to be addressed. And because of these breakdowns in our system of government, we face greater challenges in the war effort and will most certainly face even greater ones in the future.

Gingrich's testimony includes across-the-board criticisms of our government, media, as well as the president's current strategy. He points out 4 major threats against the United States, 3 weaknesses in the handling of the war and, more importantly, he lists 18 solutions that, in his opinion, need to be implemented before the machinery in Washington can expect to function at a level that will yield positive results in the overall war effort.

We, as consumers of news, are accustomed to people inside the beltway slamming this policy and that policy on a daily basis. But it's refreshing to have someone include a coherent list of solutions to these policy breakdowns. Refreshing, too, is having that list written in a manner that the average citizen can comprehend.

The inner workings of Washington are exceptionally complicated and political in nature; Gingrich goes out of his way to explain not only the problems but the solutions as well. Some problems, partisanship, are probably not going to be fixed given the political season we find ourselves in, however, they need to be pointed out.

If you're trying to understand the challenges we, as a Nation, face today, Gingrich's testimony is a must read. Here's the link.

Just a guess here, but I figure someone got their ass chewed real good for leaving the mic turned on.



The Democrats are in charge, the MSM are doing their bidding, so it's time for a chuckle, and a reminder. It's old but always good to see.

This story appeared Friday but soon went away. I found that rather odd since it's the type of story the MSM and the Dems love to point to when arguing that the mission in Iraq has fallen apart. Now, after some thinking, it's possible they are saving the story for when Pelosi and Murtha return from Iraq. Then they can hold a presser and point to this incident as a prime example of why we need to bring our troops home. From CBS News and AP:

(AP) "In perhaps the boldest and most sophisticated attack in four years of warfare, gunmen speaking English, wearing U.S. military uniforms and carrying American weapons abducted four U.S. soldiers last week at the provincial headquarters in the Shiite holy city of Karbala and then shot them to death."

"The security breakdown and the dramatic kidnapping and murder of four soldiers leaked out just as President Bush faces stiffening congressional opposition over his plan to flood Baghdad and surrounding regions with 21,500 more American troops. Two of Congress's most vocal war critics, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Rep. John Murtha, were in the Iraqi capital as the news broke."

Murtha is very good at "sounding retreat." Expect more of this when he returns.

It just doesn't seem like nine years have gone by since the Liar-in-Chief proved to America that he was indeed the Liar-in-Chief. But it has been nine years. So in honor of Mr. Clinton, Mrs. Clinton, and Monica Lewinsky...I bring you the moment the wheels began to fall off.



Glenn Beck is one of my stops during the day. Not the radio version but the CNN Headline News version. Great show, great host. Lots of talent--funny. I've watched his show since it first aired last year and, generally, I agree with him, but one time I found myself screaming at the tv. That was when he said that Tim Russert was one of the good guys. I figured they must be friends or something, because Russert is clearly not one of the good guys. He works for "them."

Anyway, ol' Glenn boy has gone and upset our fellow Muslim brothers and sisters by goin' off and doin' somthin' real tellin' it like it is--asking questions--making demands. Glenn has Arab groups climbing all over him for not accepting--not assuming--that Muslims are simply a peace-loving group looking for a better life here in America. Land of The Great Satan. Beck, while talking with Keith Ellison, had this to say:

"The groups said that Beck -- who's drawing strong ratings with his evening show on CNN Headline News -- has stated on his show that Arab and Muslim Americans are apathetic to terrorism. During an interview in November with Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, the first Muslim member of Congress, Beck asked him to "prove to me that you are not working with our enemies."

Because he asked Ellison to "prove" he wasn't working with our enemies, Beck now has several Arab-Muslim groups putting pressure on ABC TV in an effort to stop them from hiring Beck on Good Morning America. CAIR isn't listed as one of the groups protesting but they can't be far behind.

The original story about Beck comes from Newsmax. However, I've since learned that the Washington Post has a piece in today's paper about him. It's a "hit" piece. You don't have to read very far to know that, either. Start with the title.

So, with the WaPo coming out swinging, Muslim groups attacking his flanks, I wonder if ABC will fold under the pressure? It wouldn't surprise me.

***Also in hot water today would be Tom Tancredo. He pissed off some folks in congress (just the ones of color) so expect this story to continue. BTW, did I mention that Tancredo will be interviewed by Mark and Andrea? I didn't? Well, it's true. January 29th. Details here.

Further, if any Republican senator who votes for such a resolution is a candidate for re-election in 2008, I will not contribute to the National Republican Senatorial Committee unless the Chairman of that Committee, Senator Ensign, commits in writing that none of the funds of the NRSC will go to support the re-election of any senator supporting the non-binding resolution."

Are we at war? Well, I'm told that's the case. The president says it all the time. I'm sure he'll mention it several times during his SOTU speech this evening, too. However, here at home, I don't see our Nation on much of a war footing.

Here's my suggestion: After LTG David Petraeus completes his confirmation as the senior American commander in Iraq, give him two more stars and promote him to General of the Army. In times of war, we've always had a General of the Army. Let's get with the program and act like this is a war.

Last Sunday night, a caller to The Andrea Shea-King Show said his family in Lebanon was told to stay inside on Tuesday because "something" was going to happen. Looks like he was correct.

BEIRUT (AP) — Hezbollah-led opposition protesters paralyzed Lebanon Tuesday by burning tires and cars at major thoroughfares in and around the capital, sparking clashes with government supporters amid a general strike aimed at toppling U.S.-backed Prime Minister Fuad Saniora.

Looks like our good friends in Iran and Syria are working their version of the Middle East peace process via Hezbollah. No hand shaking going on here--lots of things burning, though.

Walid Phares will be on with Mark and Andrea today to discuss these developments.

Keith Ellison is the first Muslim elected to congress. Many said it's a big deal; many said it was no big deal. I think it was a very big deal that he chose to place his hand on the Koran during his "ceremonial" swearing in. So is this:

"On Feb.12, 2000, Ellison joined Bernadine Dohrn, one of the founders of the 1960s radical group the Weather Underground, and several other speakers at a fundraiser for recently arrested Kathleen Soliah, a.k.a. Sara Jane Olson."

No big deal? Read the article, then think again.



Last night's interview with Jack Cashill was beyond my expectations. After listening to an interview like that, it's difficult to remain positive, especially knowing that Hillary could be in the White House in a couple of years. Disheartened? Somewhat. Podcast is available. Cashill's site.

***Andrea had a caller who has family in Lebanon--said there's a warning in the area for residents to remain inside their homes on Tuesday because something's going to happen. Just caught my attention.

Last Friday, LTC Buzz Patterson was interviewed by Mark and Andrea regarding Jack Cashill's article in WND. In that article, Cashill describes the motivation behind Sandy Berger's trip to the National Archives and subsequent theft of top secret documents. Cashill also revisits LTC Patterson's position as an aide to then President Clinton. Enter--Operation Bojinka.

TONIGHT, ANDREA WILL BE INTERVIEWING JACK CASHILL. Cashill's article is of great importance--so is this interview. The Clintons will do whatever it takes to keep a lid on this story, to not have Bill's presidency marred, and most importantly, to not have anything connected to husband Bill spill over to Hillary and damage her run for the White House. The MSM and the Justice Dept don't seem interested, but writers like Cashill and Patterson are. Bloggers must involve themselves as well.

Andrea's show will be broadcast live via the internet on WDBO Orlando at 9 PM EST.

We'll probably never know exactly why Sandy Berger pilfered documents from the National Archives, but that will never stop folks from trying to figure it out. One thing's for sure: It has to do with Bill Clinton and terrorism. That much we can agree on, I think.

The suspicions of one writer are presented in an article at WND. In the piece, he brings up another situation that's never set well with me: TWA Flight 800. But to talk about that incident invites "debunkers" to enter the discussion and redirect the focus of the article (Clinton). Let's just say the handling of TWA 800 is similar to that of an incident in 1963, and not so much for what happened off Long Island but for what didn't happen afterwards.

Of note in the article is LTC Buzz Patterson--our man inside the White House. I'd love to hear his thoughts on OPERATION BOJINKA and how it relates to Berger. Go read. See what you think.


Continuing on the topic of terrorism is an OP-ED in the LA Times. The writer was on Tucker's show yesterday. The discussion is about the "left" and how they led us into 9-11. Whether you agree with that or not, the look back at history is important and interesting. Later Thursday, the author found himself on Glenn Beck's show. Beck was brutal with him and discounted the premise as ridiculous. I was surprised.

Bob Seger has always been a hard rock 'n roller; he's able to tone it down and do some nice ballads too. I got to know this band in the '70s--Monterey, Pacific Grove, Carmel.



The republican party has no superstar candidates waiting in the stable for a run at the White House in '08. Reagan was the last one. On the other hand, the democrats have two: Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama.

We all pretty much know everything there is to know about Hillary. She has a past. And then there's Bill.

Obama, well, we don't know that much about him except that he is fast becoming the darling of the democratic party, not to mention the MSM. He does, however, have a past. But it's a short one. Details of his voting record from Illinois are listed here.

Clinton and Obama seem to have something in common: The ability to raise huge sums of money. Clinton has proven herself to be a very successful fundraiser and Obama has done ok for himself as well. But it looks like Obama will be moving up to the big leagues in that category. Hollywood is readying itself for the Jr. Senator from Illinois with checkbook in hand.

With two superstar democrats raising mountains of cash, it would seem the two could end up on the same ticket in '08. Clinton--Obama would be a powerful ticket.

And the republicans have who?

I'm not a fan of the big polling companies or the polls they release to the public. As we all know, polls are easily manipulated. This Zogby poll simply states the obvious and I doubt they manipulated it.

"A Zogby International survey reveals many Americans long for leadership qualities similar to the kind shown by former U.S. presidents Ronald Reagan and Franklin Delano Roosevelt."

Actually, Reagan came in first, while FDR was a close second. At a time when our Nation needed great leadership, Reagan and FDR stepped up and delivered the goods. One can only speculate on how our history would read had these two men not been available to lead us.

Presently, we are seeking great leadership-a great communicator-to lead our Nation through the current crisis we face. Not only are Americans seeking great leadership, I think the world is as well.

For the most part, this political cycle features very little in the way of great leadership possibilities--on both sides of the aisle. However, I think we have the makings of a great communicator, a great leader, in Newt Gingrich. Newt speaks glowingly, as did Reagan, of the possibilities America has to offer. A future of great things to come--the best days are ahead of us. Of hope.

Many will say, as they have time and time again, that Newt has too much baggage. He has baggage, no doubt. But they all do. Name one who doesn't have something that the MSM won't pounce on, exaggerate, or exploit? You can't. I'm looking for great leadership, and Newt is where I begin the search. He has ideas, passion, and a vision. That's a good start. It could be he's not the man, but Newt is where my search begins.

Looking back on Greatness...

Before the games begin, it's only fitting to start with this:

Just in case the TRAITORS of this Nation have forgotten, that was our NATIONAL ANTHEM, and it has never been presented with such force and pride as it was on that day.



There's not much I can add about the speech last night that hasn't already been said. Froggy and Radio Patriots laid it out there as good as anyone could have.

The other day I posted about Loyal Opposition. I said to watch for the post-speech reaction. I never thought the democrats or the MSM would go this far, especially in a time of war. We always knew they worked together but the line that divides them is no longer visible. It's obvious, now, the two are one-in-the-same.

We're fighting two enemies here, maybe three, depending on how you view it. This is not good. Pray for us. And it's probably a waste of time, but you can contact these SOBs in Congress and let them know what you think.



So, when I get to feelin' this low I turn to the Chairman:

San Francisco is such a lovely, peace-loving town. Hey, if you don't believe me, just ask this all-male singing group from Yale what they think?

Well, you'll have to wait to ask this group member:

Didn't Bush graduate from Yale? No, that couldn't be part of this.

Do you think it could've been the provocative song they chose to sing? I think not. This is a peace-loving town, after all.

Thanks, Nancy. Lovely town.

The Committee on Oversight and Government Reform issued a press release regarding Sandy Berger's removal of documents from the National Archives. To sum it up for you: Berger got away with it. Period. Berger must have pictures of someone from inside the beltway with a farm animal. You and I wouldn't be in jail for doing this, we'd be under it. Here's a snip:

"Washington, D.C. – Oversight and Government Reform Committee Ranking Member Tom Davis (R-VA) released the following statement today on a committee report that sheds important new light on Sandy Berger’s theft of classified documents from the National Archives. The report makes it clear that the full extent of Mr. Berger’s document removal can never be known, and consequently the Department of Justice could not assure the 9/11 Commission that it received all responsive documents to which Mr. Berger had access."


“My staff’s investigation reveals that President Clinton’s former National Security Advisor Sandy Berger compromised national security much more than originally disclosed,” Davis said. “It is now also clear that Mr. Berger was willing to go to extraordinary lengths to compromise national security, apparently for his own convenience."

Enjoy the whole thing for yourselves.

After CPR ended on Tuesday, I was looking over Drudge's stories. Most of the day there had been 3 articles about the Malibu Fire. One of them was about Suzanne Somers' home being destroyed. Then, later, I noticed an additional (4th) article about Somers that mentioned Iraq in the blurb. So, naturally, I took a look.

At first I was astonished at what Somers said about Iraq, then I was confused. Not wanting to fall victim to a story being pulled, (Mark and Andrea) I saved the article and printed it. I kept reading it to get an idea of where she was coming from, because I wasn't sure if she was a regular Hollywood loon. Was she slamming the war? I wasn't sure. And then, within an hour or so, the article was pulled from Drudge's site. Who knew? The other 3 articles remained. Now I'm really re-reading it. (I did find it listed in Drudge's archives at 18:56:07)

Here's where it gets weird. This is what the 4th article quotes Somers as saying, and it's the same article that was pulled from Drudge's site after an hour or so:

In the wake of a devastating fire that destroyed her Malibu home, Suzanne Somers maintains a positive attitude.

In a statement to TMZ issued by her rep, Suzanne says, "My nature is to look at the glass half full. I don't have a son or daughter in Iraq. I haven't lost a loved one. We will rebuild, and I truly believe we will learn something great from this experience."

Suzanne and her husband were not in Malibu during the blaze.

Now, the original article about Somers' home being destroyed quotes her as saying this:

"My nature is to look at the glass half-full," Somers said in a statement Tuesday. "I truly believe we will learn something great from this experience."

Just slightly different, wouldn't you say?

Do you think she was slamming the war in Iraq? And why and how does this article get pulled from Drudge's site so fast? The differing quotes?

I'm not saying she's a loon or that she's slamming the war, but something's fishy here. If she's slamming the war, then I'll gladly fit her on my list. I have plenty of room.

In the 4th article, there is a video link but it wouldn't work on my machine. However, I'm told she does not mention Iraq during the taped interview, which leads me to believe she said it prior to or just after taping and someone wrote it down. BTW, the 4th article has over 200 comments--explosive on both sides. USA Today has no mention of the Iraq portion of her quote, either.

The L.A. Times has a 3rd version, but not completely in quotes:

Somers bit her lip before making a statement for microphones thrust in front of her. In proper Hollywood fashion, that statement was scripted.

It wasn't as though she'd lost a son or daughter in Iraq, she said.

"My nature is to look at the glass half full," Somers said, reading from a piece of paper. "I haven't lost a loved one. We will rebuild, and I truly believe we will learn something great from this experience."

A couple of sentences and we get 3 versions of it.

Share your wisdom with me. I'm lost.

Today, Dr. Jerome Corsi was interviewed by CPR's Mark Vance. The subject was "The North American Union." This morning, Pat Curley (Brainster) posted about Corsi--he used the term "Debunking" in the title of his post. Corsi read the post. Well, let's just say Corsi was a bit pissed off over Pat's use of that word.

Not long after the interview began, Corsi began to speak in less than glowing terms about Pat and his work. Then...Pat called the show to ask Corsi some questions.

That's when the fireworks started.

Corsi's interview will be rebroadcast tonight at 10 PM EST at this link. Don't miss it. (show begins at 9 EST)

P.S. Next time you guys have Corsi on, please do not mention my name or my blog!!! Please.

UPDATE: Brainster on that word--Debunking.



As the United States of America (the operative word being "United") there is nothing we can't overcome or accomplish. We, as a "United" people, have demonstrated this time and time again. When the very fabric of our Nation was put to the test during both war and depression, we came through. We regrouped, rebuilt, and established the greatest Nation in the history of the world. Without a "United" front, especially within governmental leadership bodies, there is very little we can accomplish.

Since the new congress took over in the first week of January, a concept that is rarely used these days is now in play: Loyal Opposition. This is a concept that comes from the United Kingdom but has a history of use in the United States as well.

"In the United States, the most common application of the term is to refer to the major political party, such as the United States Democratic Party or United States Republican Party, which does not hold the office of President during time of war, most notably the Republican Party during World War II, implying an obligation for said party to cooperate fully and without reservation in the war effort. It is rarely if ever used in the United States during peacetime."

This concept, today, is ignored for political gain, thus putting us in grave danger. A couple examples of ignoring this concept can be found here and here. The first example, I think, borders on the criminal. But it's from Joe Biden, so it's no surprise.

Wednesday evening, the POTUS will give a speech about his plans for the war in Iraq. Let's see what the "Loyal Opposition" decides to do after the speech. To not support the President is to put our Nation in danger, as well as the men and women who are already in harm's way.

Watch and learn.

Stew Magoo's home blog is Get Stewed, but he can be found co-blogging at The Right Place too. Just the other day Stew discovered plans by "certain individuals" to rewrite our constitution. Stew shares his findings at The Right Place. (btw, Anna is a co-blogger at The Right Place too)

BONUS: Dr. Sanity brings us the polling data wou will NOT see in the MSM. Trust me, you will not see it.



Ace of Spades posted about a rather unusual girl...or girls. Like Ace, I was trying to figure out if it was fake, but it appears real. Never heard of her...or them, before. Have you?

NATIONAL GUARD FORCED TO RETREAT... Arizona!! Nope, we don't have a problem down on the border. No problem.

You would think this story would be a HEADLINE in the Arizona papers...but it isn't.

MITT IN '08?

Mitt Romney seems to have it all. Comes from a good family, successful businessman, millionaire, Harvard educated, married, children, saved the Olympics in SLC--remember that one? Oh, and he's the governor of Massachusetts. (How did that happen, anyway?)

If you're planning to run for president, it helps to have a resume like he has. (His looks and hair don't hurt, either) However, there has been some talk about his religious affiliation--he's a Mormon. The Church of Latter Day Saints. Reminds you of JFK in 1960. A Catholic in the White House meant the Pope would be running the country. Of course this is all BS. I'm sure Romney's a good man, though I do have a problem or two with him on certain issues, but they're not quite deal breakers...yet.

I do, however, feel he has one big problem--it can be found in this post.

DEL REEVES 1933-2007

"Del Reeves, a Grand Ole Opry star who sprinkled his performances with humor and hit No. 1 on the country charts in 1965 with the song "Girl on the Billboard," has died. He was 73."

Looking back at his music.
