Hat tip to Ace


Friday, June 27, 2008


After I get up in the morning, I begin the cruise for news and posts at my favorite sites. Usually I follow the same routine each morning.

When I hit the link in my blogroll for Atlas Shrugs, I leave the computer and go make coffee. With a cup of Joe in hand, I return to the computer to read Geller's site. I do this for a reason.

This has always been the single-most frustrating site for me to access, so I schedule distractions--making coffee, showering, reading a novel, 3-day road trip, etc--to avoid the irritation her site causes me while it loads. Normally, I wouldn't return to a site like this but her content is that important.

Apparently, I wasn't the only one experiencing the excessive load times--Geller took note of the problem (finally) and trimmed the site down to fightin' weight. Now ATLAS SHRUGS loads in a flash. Head over and take her for a spin!

How's your site?

Some say Carlin was way out there when it came to his observations of life in the U.S., or anywhere, for that matter. His routines could get edgy and uncomfortable--depending on where you stood on an issue. But overall, this guy was a comedic genius. I have one of his books, "Brain Droppings", and it's funny from start to finish. The bonus, though, was that his comedy often left you thinking, which is rare in the comedy industry. Thinking is good...or bad, as he observes in this routine about education: (since it's Carlin, language warning)

Funny? You bet. And if you have a brain, it should make you think. I posted something along these lines not that long ago. Of course, I didn't use the harsh language, but between you and me, I was thinking it.

One of my favorite Carlin observations:

"When you're born, you get a ticket to the freak show; when you're born in America, you get a front row seat."

Can't argue with that.

Recently, two stories came to light that are disturbing and dangerous. One we can do something about come November; the other we have to live with for quite some time. Many stories get reported by bloggers and just go by the wayside as newer, more shocking stories develop. However, these two stories are not going away. And, like I said, we can do something about one of them this November. If we lose the White House to Obama and congress to the dems, there will be little we can do about either of these stories. November is everything.

The first story (still developing) is about how Rep. John Murtha accused our Marines of murder in Haditha, labeling them as "cold-blooded killers." 7 of the 8 Marines originally charged in the "massacre" are no longer being prosecuted because the charges were either dropped or the cases ended in acquittal. Murtha knows full well he'll be held accountable for his treasonous behavior against these brave Marines; he's being challenged this November by William Russell and it's my hope many will $upport him. The cartoon below depicts the REAL story of the Haditha Massacre:

The second story is the Supreme Court decision allowing terrorists being held by the U.S. full rights under our court system--Justice Kennedy being the one who wrote the deciding opinion. Until we get some movement at SCOTUS (new blood), we're just stuck with this dangerous situation. The cartoons below say it all:

When it comes to high fuel prices, the airlines are dead in the water. But, as this airline CEO proves, all problems have a solution. Think outside the box, I say. Ace of Spades HQ has adopted this company as its "official airline", and for good reason.

Melanie Morgan's weekly commentary at WND--HOT TALK--is now published. I urge all of you to read it because it's one of Morgan's most important columns.
I bet some of you weren't aware that Morgan and others, including our own Andrea Shea-King, are making history right now. Troop Support History, that is. Come June 26, even more history will be made and each and every one of you can and should be part of it.

Now, here's Morgan's commentary, read it, pass it along, and make plans to join the effort in support of our wonderful fighting men and women:

By Melanie Morgan

Were there moments when your boss sent a nasty e-mail? Perhaps the car broke down while the kids were fighting in the back seat, or you felt overwhelmed trying to take care of elderly parents, or had the sinking realization that the 401k plan isn't living up to your expectations in this economy?

You don't know how lucky you are.

One-hundred eighty thousand of our brave troops are right now in Iraq and Afghanistan, on the front lines of the war on terror. While you sit here reading this column, temperatures in Iraq are soaring above 110-115 degrees. The night provides no respite from the oppressive heat that seems to suck the oxygen right from your lungs. Low temperatures for many cities won't even dip below 85-90 degrees. Now imagine enduring this heat while wearing more than 50 pounds of body armor and equipment, and even a shower (if you are lucky enough to get one) can't remove the grime that covers every inch of your body.

But that's not even the worst of it...continue reading.

In the coming days, many people will be posting about "From The Front Lines". You'll be hearing about it on tv and the radio. Do your part to get the word out.

I mentioned above that Andrea Shea-King is involved in this effort. She's included in the All-Star line-up that will be broadcasting "live" on June 26. Andrea's part in this effort was even mentioned in my local Sacramento paper.

Pictured below is Andrea. Because I work with Andrea, I often have her picture posted here at my site, and, I might add, she takes a good pic. But this time, I don't have her picture posted for you to see her; I wanted you to see the lady to her right. This is Mary Lou Wade from Florida's Space Coast and Andrea's very good friend. When it comes to supporting our military, few can match Mary Lou's passion.

For decades, Mary Lou and her family suffered with the loss of a loved one. That loved one was one of our military heroes. Loss is one thing, but not knowing is quite another--Capt Herbert Crosby, Mary Lou's brother, was MIA for decades. Last year he was finally brought home to his family and laid to rest at Arlington. Andrea attended and reported on it.

This kind of loss and suffering can jade and weaken even the strongest of families. It would be understandable. Mary Lou, however, hasn't been weakened. In fact, I think she's stronger than ever. Even after being pounded with grief year in and year out, she continues to think of our military. She's an inspiration and we could use more like her.

This past week, Mary Lou did something that made a difference. Did you? Some would say it's no big deal--but I think it is given what this woman and her family have been through. She went that extra mile in pointing out something we rarely consider as we go through our daily lives here in the States. And she did it with our military in mind.

I'm not at liberty to mention what she did and it's really not important that I do so, but if you read Morgan's commentary, Mary Lou's fingerprints are all over it. And, Morgan did a great job of painting the picture for us.

Whether it be time or money, it isn't important how large your contribution is to the support of our military; the important thing is that you contribute something and continue to do so when you can. Our military needs our help; they deserve our help.

Now, if you think Mary Lou's done for the week, think again. Go that extra mile, make a difference. Be like Mary Lou.

Rep. Murtha and Time Magazine reporter, Tim McGuirk, are about to pay the price for their dangerous and irresponsible actions against at least one Marine. LTC Chessani and his attorney are drawing up battle plans:

"In an interview with nationally syndicated radio talk host Michael Savage, the lead attorney for Lt. Col. Jeffrey Chessani said he and his client will look into suing Murtha and the Time magazine reporter, Tim McGuirk, who first published the accusations by Iraqi insurgents.

But the attorney, Brian Rooney, said nothing will happen immediately because he wants Chessani, described as a devout Christian and the father of six homeschooled children, completely "out of the woods" legally before any action is taken. The government, through Lt. Col. S.M. Sullivan, today filed a notice that it would appeal the case to the next judicial level."

Let's hope the appeal fails and Chessani gets his licks in on Murtha and McGuirk. Read the article.

Previous post. Call Rep Murtha for comment: 202-225-2065

LTC Chessani's legal team:

***THE THOMAS MORE LAW CENTER has more coverage. I encourage you to DONATE as well. These people are doing great work and should be supported.

CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. -- A military judge dismissed charges Tuesday against a Marine officer accused of failing to investigate the killings of 24 Iraqis.

Col. Steven Folsom dismissed charges against Lt. Col. Jeffrey Chessani after finding that a four-star general overseeing the case was improperly influenced by an investigator probing the November 2005 shootings by a Marine squad in Haditha.

Here's where we are now:

Of eight Marines originally charged in the case, only one is still facing prosecution in the biggest U.S. criminal prosecution involving Iraqi deaths to come out of the war.

Give Murtha a call at 202-225-2065 to see if he has a comment. Malkin has much, much more.

Cornering Jack Murtha for an apology:



Known as "The Daisy Ad," it was the most controversial political ad in the history of televised, presidential politics. The ad aired one time and had to be pulled. But its effects lingered (MSM replayed the ad on nightly newscasts) and LBJ won the White House going away in the 1964 elections. Tony Schwartz obit. (I bet this movie ending had everything to do with the making of this ad)



What qualifies Obama to be our next president? Good question. And it's one that we shouldn't have to ask at this stage of the presidential race. We should already be clear on this point, but we're not.

Recently, Byron York asked the same question and decided to go looking for answers. He traveled to Chicago and did a little background check on Obama's resume entry--"community organizer." Surely Obama's record of accomplishments as a "community organizer" will give us an indication as to why he's qualified to be our next president. You would think, anyway.

What York found was neither impressive or presidential. Read on.

Soon after I got up this morning, I found myself reading a story about trees in France. It didn't take long to get good and pissed off at the French again. But, on second thought, I'm not too sure I should be pissed at them.

Stories like this one are a sign of the times, both overseas and in Washington, that something is changing and there's not a goddamn thing you can do about it.

It makes me sick.

"The names “Thomas and Dorothy” were carved in the bark of one trunk. Another said “Bob and Carma”. Other trees were marked with soldiers’ home states - Iowa, Maine or Alabama - and several bore hearts and the names or initials of a wife or girlfriend.

The beech trees of Saint Pierre de Varengeville-Duclair forest bore a poignant testimony to the D-Day landings for more than six decades. Thousands of American soldiers stationed there after the liberation of Normandy spent their spare hours with a knife or bayonet creating a lasting reminder of their presence.

Although the trees grew and the graffiti swelled and twisted, this most peculiar memory of one of the 20th century’s defining moments remained visible - until now. Amid bureaucratic indifference and a dispute between officials and the forest owner, most of the trees have been felled, chopped up and turned into paper." --when you read the article, you'll see the "cigarette camps" mentioned. Learn more about them at the link below.

Yesterday was an important day for all Americans. It was not a good day, either. We learned two more things about the democrats.

First, they want you and me to continue paying high prices at the pump, and for anything else that's going up because of the price of oil. Yesterday, the dems stopped a bill that would allow drilling offshore. I ask you: if it isn't a good idea to drill off our coastlines, then why are the Chinese doing it? Enough is enough:

"A congressional subcommittee struck down an important bill, which could have opened up reserves worth billions of barrels of oil and trillions of cubic feet of natural gas, on Wednesday, Cramer said." Read the rest. Malkin has more.

Second, they want you and me to shut up. Democrats don't like this "free speech" thing too much, so they're fighting against a bill that would eliminate the "Fairness Doctrine." With the FD, talk radio becomes a thing of the past. The dems (and some Rs) would love that because the liberal media would control the flow of ALL information to you and me:

“Now [Democrats] have a new plan: if you can’t beat them, censor them,” remarked L. Brent Bozell III, president of the Media Research Center. Read about the Broadcaster Freedom Act.

Now get on the phone.

We're beginning to see some fallout from Hillary being thrown under the bus. One of Hillary's supporters has started his own website--HCSFJM.COM--and the site is getting huge traffic. Let's hope this catches on. Head over and pump his stats!!


I have a prediction: If Obama gets elected, Williams and Potfry go missing sometime in early '09.

He played young George Bailey in It's a Wonderful Life. Great movie filled with great actors. "George Bailey, I'll love you 'til the day I die."



We've seen enough stories about the selling of key American businesses as well as parts of America's infrastructure to indicate that, yes, America is for sale. Now, don't get me wrong. Doing business with folks is a good thing--investment is a good thing, but not transactions that involve key industries and infrastructures with national security implications.

The government tracks and reports on transactions involving foreign investment on a regular basis. Hell, the government tracks just about everything these days and these reports provide the public with some very important information. Maybe, too important.

Now, what I'm about to tell you is completely the fault of Americans like you and me. We've caused our government some problems by having the audacity to follow up on things we think are dangerous to our Nation.

At times, we wrote about it, emailed about it, phoned congress about it, even faxed about it. Need I mention Talk Radio?

For example: When we found out about the Dubai Ports deal and made our voices heard, the deal had to be scrapped. The aftermath of our stunt left those in Washington very unhappy.

Since then, our man at Treasury, Henry Paulson, has been running around the globe trying to drum up investments in America. Seems he's being met with some reluctance, thanks to loud mouth Americans like you and me:

"In May, during a four-day trip to the Middle East that included Saudi Arabia and Dubai, U.S. Secretary of Treasury Henry Paulson encouraged foreign investment in the United States, arguing the controversy over Dubai Ports in 2006 did not reflect an adverse U.S. attitude toward foreign investment."

After voicing our concerns about certain Nations investing in America, mainly Islamic Nations, those Nations are now trying to calm our fears:

"WND previously reported since the beginning of the year, Dubai and Abu Dhabi, two of the largest United Arab Emirate states, have been in discussions with the U.S. Treasury, offering reassurances that their investments in U.S. banks and security firms would not impose restrictions usually dictated by Islamic law, commonly known as sharia."

I feel much better, now. How you feeling?

PROBLEM SOLVED: By reporting on such deals as Dubai Ports (Duncan Hunter comments), we created some political roadblocks for the "Monty Halls" in Washington who purport to represent our best interests. So much trouble was caused that they came up with a very simple, yet effective, solution.

"Foreign investment in the United States is on the rise and key U.S. businesses and infrastructures such as roads and airports are being sold to foreign investors. Now comes word from the U.S. Department of Commerce the Bureau of Economic Affairs will stop publishing a key report tracking those foreign dollars." (my emphasis)

Read the story as reported by WND's Dr. Jerome Corsi.

**Here we go, again--another voice. If you're not careful, Washington's next "solution" might be shutting down the internet. After all, they have deals to make and we have our "assurances". Please, DO NOT WRITE about this subject anymore. Stop...before it's too late.

The news is all over the place...especially in Detroit!! In a related story, it's being reported that unemployment figures are expected to surge by at least Detroit.

Video found via WorldNetDaily. While you're at WND, check out this Obama--Clinton related story from the DC area. Great work, Alyssa Farah.

Obama at a loss for words (warning--painful to watch)



Veteran ABC sportscaster, Jim McKay, died Saturday at 86. McKay was one of the best sportscasters in the history of televised sports. His name and voice were known worldwide through his decades-long association with ABC's Wide World of Sports. The show's intro by McKay:

"Spanning the globe to bring you the constant variety of sport… the thrill of victory… and the agony of defeat… the human drama of athletic competition… This is ABC's Wide World of Sports!"

Human Drama: While covering the Munich games in 1972, McKay was suddenly thrust into the spotlight as he anchored "live" ABC News coverage of Arab terrorists taking Israeli athletes hostage.

The crisis stretched on for nearly 24 hours; at its conclusion, 11 Israeli athletes were dead--Munich Massacre. When McKay received on-air clearance, he turned to the camera and reported to the world, "They're all gone."--continue reading.

McKay's Munich report:

Members of the 1972 Israeli Olympic team, photographed just before their departure for Munich. The 11 team members taken hostage and subsequently murdered were: 1) wrestling referee Yossef Gutfreund (inset), age 40; 2) wrestling coach Moshe Weinberg, 33; 3) weightlifter Yossef Romano, 31; 4) weightlifter David Berger, 28; 5) weightlifter Ze'ev Friedman, 28; 6) wrestler Eliezer Halfin, 24; 7) track coach Amitzur Shapira, 40; 8) shooting coach Kehat Shorr, 53; 9) wrestler Mark Slavin, 18; 10) fencing coach Andre Spitzer, 27; and 11) weightlifting judge Yakov Springer, 51.

IT'S THE MEDIA, STUPID !!--updated

Last night, the primary season came to an end with Obama sealing the deal. The only unfinished business for the dems is what Hillary's role will consist of in the coming months. As of today, it's Obama v. McCain.

Nearly a year ago, McCain's political corpse was being lowered into the grave and Hillary owned the world as the presumptive nominee for the dems. The coronation, anyone? Today, McCain owns everything as the republican nominee and Hillary ends up $20 million in debt. Quite a reversal of fortunes, I'd say. How did this happen? Good question.

Short answer: the media. We didn't pick these candidates, the media did. In the case of McCain, I think it's obvious conservatives didn't pick him. In fact, we totally rejected him. Just a year ago his campaign was DOA. But he lives on.

In the case of Obama and Hillary, the media loved Obama, picked him and threw Hillary under that bus. Yes, she made a few mistakes along the way but nothing that would end a campaign. Now, Obama, that's another story. Any one of his problems would not only end a campaign, but a career. However, with the MSM working for you, anything is possible.

Look at these two men. McCain is being marketed to you as a conservative, which is a lie. Saying he's a republican is a stretch. Obama, now here's a guy who has no record. He accomplished very little in the Illinois Senate and absolutely zero in the U.S. Senate, with the exception of running for president.

Obama has so much baggage--TUCC, Rev Wright, Moss, Bill Ayers, Rezko, Michelle, Nation of Islam, Gaffes--that he has to haul it around in steamer trunks. McCain's baggage is his senate record--he's a liberal. One day he'll make a fine democrat. (did I mention Dr. Juan Hernandez?)

Btw, since the Fairness Doctrine isn't in place yet, Obama's problems are just beginning and will get bigger. I think the DNC miscalculated by not ditching him a couple months back for Hillary. By not doing so, they've essentially committed "OBAMACIDE"--Watch and learn.

If the MSM did its job the way it's supposed to--watchdog for the public--neither of these men would be running for president. Obama probably wouldn't be a senator. Yet, one of them will be living in the White House next January. But how can that be, you ask?

Well, just take a couple generations of Americans. Re-educate the first generation through our institutions of higher learning, then release them to the world to work and have kids. Turn the schools into full-blown, government operated indoctrination centers--K thru post grad--and churn the 2nd gen of kids through as well. Of course, "teach" them along the way, eventually releasing them to the world...and before you know it, you can market anything to these "enlightened" individuals--from products to politicans to socialism.

What have they learned? Entitlement, victimhood, and consumption. Got a problem?--see the govenment. To question, doubt, even attack, America. That GOD is not only illegal but insignificant. Most importantly, to always buy the bullshit the MSM is marketing to them. Don't think, don't ask, just buy.

I leave you with this. Try to think.

My comments on Obama taking the nomination will be posted later today. What a day, and it's still developing...


Sunday, June 01, 2008


Let's recap here: We have Obama's ongoing racist church fiasco...and we have the Florida--Michigan seating debacle. No matter how either of these are dealt with, some huge block of voters are going to be pissed off. The gal in this video is explaining how and why McCain will be the next president, and she's a Hillary supporter!! I'm tellin' ya, this a freak show--and it's FREE FREE FREE:

An article out of the UK is pointing out exactly what the woman in the video is talking about--a snip:

"There is also a growing fear that many of the women backing Clinton are turning against Obama. Clinton and her supporters have controversially accused their rival, and the media, of being misogynistic in the last few weeks of the race. A recent Pew Poll showed Obama's support among white women collapsing from 56 per cent to 43 per cent."

How come we're not hearing about this from the NYT or MSDNC? Maybe I missed it.
