The Clintonesque Ethic

Clintonesque: 1. shaded by deceit 2. Having Clinton-like qualities (Classless, arrogant, dishonest, shameless, corrupt, secretive, vicious, vengeful, elitist, and intoxicated by political power. ) 3. In matters of speech, to parse the English language at a direct question so as to avoid responsibility for your own actions. In matters of conduct, to be more interested in self, instead of the greater good.

Remember all that money (almost $900,000) that the Clinton campaign was going to return and/or donate to charity because it was tainted by scandal?

Well, Hillary wants it back.

The Clinton campaign will try to get most of the donors to give the money back right after the refunds, said a senior Democratic strategist and one of Clinton’s campaign advisers. “That’s the plan.”

Ms Clinton is running for president on her White House experience in the 1990s, a time when both Clintons were often photographed with people whose money was funny, like Johnny Chung

Charlie Trie .

Ah, yes, the Clinton Follies. Eight years of demanding dollars for the honor of having your photo taken with the Hill-Billy Clintons (Oh, wait, he's still charging for that), or sleeping in the Lincoln Bedroom.

Did it cost extra to jump up and down on the Lincoln Bed like those twits Markie Post and Linda Bloodworth-Thomason, or was that included in the $150,000 'donation'?

Note to Hillary: Just because your lying, cheating co-president got away with slimey campaign fund tactics (like White House coffees, demanding dollars for photo ops, and selling overnight stays in the Lincoln Bedroom) doesn't mean you will.

Advisers say Hillary is more worried about containing the political damage than furious about the scandal.

Yet she doesn't want to appear to be greedy or ethically challenged.

Not that she isn't, she just doesn't want to appear to be so.

This is the Clintonesque ethic at work.

"The Clintons represent the worst in modern American politics: ruthless ambition over a desire to serve; preoccupation with political funding over a fair system; opportunism over principle; betrayal of any cause or policy over taking a stand; and a desperation to gain and keep office over any obligation to honor its responsibilities." --

The Streets of San Francisco

The United States Marine Corps wanted to film their spectacular Silent Drill team on the city streets on the anniversary o
f 9/11 for a recruitment commercial.

The request was denied by Stefanie Coyote, Executive Director of the SF Film Commmission.

The reason?
"Traffic control was the issue," explained Ms Coyote.
The Marines would have shut down just one lane of California Street for a few minutes at a time.

Captain Greg Corrales,
SFPD Traffic Bureau, who works with film crews shooting commercials, TV shows and movies in the city,
points out the Film Commission often approves shoots for rush hour.
"If they want to get the job done, they find a way to get it done."
The city also allows street demonstrations, anti-war protests and other events which snarl traffic, such as Critical Mass, when 'self-propelled' commuters -bicyclists in particular- take to the streets en masse.

Captain Corrales, a Marine veteran whose son is serving his third tour of duty in Iraq, says:
"Ms. Coyote's politics blinded her to her duty as the director of the Film Commission and as a responsible citizen."
Ms Coyote would only allow the USMC production crew to film on California Street if there were no Marines in the picture. They filmed the empty street and will have to superimpose the Marines later.

The Marines were also denied permits to shoot on the Golden Gate Bridge that same morning, ostensibly because of similar traffic concerns.

This is just another insult to the American military, along with the city blocking the USS Iowa from docking there, the banning of the junior ROTC from high schools, and trying to ban the yearly Blue Angels air show.

When the jihad comes to your city, Ms Coyote, I hope that all 800,000 of you liberal idiots and illegal immigrants and chronically homeless will welcome whoever it is that comes to pull your sorry asses out of the fire.

The Clintons vs Freedom of the Press

On January 20, 1993, William Jefferson Clinton took the oath of office as the 42nd president of the United States of America and swore to "preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States" from enemies both foreign and domestic.

Is there an expiration date on that oath?

Because ex-president Bubba surely isn't doing anything to preserve, protect, and defend the rights of Josh Green.

Green wrote an article for GQ Magazine about infighting within Hillary's campaign, which was sure to be vastly embarrassing (for her) and entertaining (for the rest of us).
So, Bill Clinton's spokesman, Jay Carson, offered GQ's editors a choice: Kill the piece, or lose access to planned December cover-boy Bill Clinton.

GQ editor Jim Nelson wussed out and bowed to the Clintons' demands. The 'offending' article was dumped.

Note: Josh Green is not a particular favorite of the Clinton campaign. He authored an unflattering profile in the November 2006 Atlantic Monthly, which concluded that the junior Senator from New York is, more or less, a calculating political hack. He wrote:

“Clinton offers no big ideas, no crusading causes — by her own tacit admission, no evidence of bravery in the service of a larger ideal. Instead, her Senate record is an assemblage of many, many small gains.

Her real accomplishment in the Senate has been to rehabilitate the image and political career of Hillary Rodham Clinton. Impressive though that has been in its particulars, it makes for a rather thin claim on the presidency. Senator Clinton has plenty to talk about, but she doesn’t have much to say."

GQ will probably name Bully-boy Bubba the 'Man of the Year'

What a shame and a sham.

The Idiot(s) at Columbia

More erudite people than I have written about Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's visit to the US this week. But here's my three cents worth:

I personally think the two-faced little Monkey-Man dictator should never have been invited to speak at Columbia University, nor should he have been allowed in this country for any reason in the first place.

Most, if not all, of those 700 Columbia University students in attendance at Monkey-Man's 'lecture' will never serve their country in the military. Fortunately for them, they have that choice.

But others made the choice to do so, and some of them are now in harm's way.

Whether you are for the war or not, whether you are a Wingnut or a Moonbat, our husbands and wives, our sons and daughters and our brothers and sisters are being killed and maimed by RPG-29 rocket-propelled grenades, 240 mm rockets and armor-piercing roadside bombs known as explosively formed penetrators (EFPs), provided by the terrorist state of Iran.

What disturbs me the most about the whole thing is that some of those Columbia University students actually applauded the little shit.

For Americans to applaud the leader of a state that sponsors terrorism and is providing weapons and materials that are killing Americans is just not right.

What is wrong with those people?

“There is no significant need for the United States.” -- Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

Bill Clinton - Giving America the Finger

With Bill Clinton, the truer the accusation, the greater his indignation.

And the more his finger wags in our faces.

The second time ex-President and known liar Bill Clinton gave America the finger on national television was one year ago today on Fox News Channel's Chris Wallace's interview show.

From behind the 'aw-shucks', good-ol-boy fa├žade, the real Bill Clinton emerged, the man those who have worked for him know – the angry, sarcastic, arrogant, self-righteous, bully boy.

Clinton, never one to let truth or his draft-dodging, anti-military past get in his way, portrayed himself as a tough, anti-terror president, with conservatives criticizing him for obsessing about bin Laden during his presidency.

With his finger wagging in America's face (again), the ex-president told Wallace,
"I worked hard to try to kill him. I authorized a finding for the CIA to kill him. We contracted with people to kill him. I got closer to killing him than anybody has gotten since."

Clinton snarled,
"And you've got that little smirk on your face and you think you're so clever. But I had responsibility for trying to protect this country. I tried and I failed to get bin Laden. I regret it. But I did try. And I did everything I thought I responsibly could ..."

Michael Scheuer, head of the CIA’s Osama bin Laden unit during the Clinton Follies, said the al-Qaida leader "is alive today” because Clinton and his top aides refused to kill him. His unit was ready and willing to go into Afghanistan and hit Osama's camps, but the order never came from above.
"He defames the CIA ... and the men and women who risked their lives to give their administration repeated chances to kill bin Laden."
The first noteworthy time Clinton gave America the finger was January 26, 1998, on national television, when Bubba, looking straight at the camera, wagging his finger in America's face, said:
"I want you to listen to me. I'm going to say this again. I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky. I never told anybody to lie, not a single time, never. These allegations are false. And I need to go back to work for the American people."


Not only did he have sexual relations with that woman ... he was:
  • the first US president to be ordered to give a blood sample for DNA evidence;
  • the only US president ever impeached on grounds of personal malfeasance;
  • the first US president sued for sexual harassment;
  • the first US president accused of rape;
  • the first US president to establish a legal defense fund;
  • the first US president to be held in contempt of court;
Bill Clinton left a stain on the U.S. Presidency as well as on Monica's blue dress.

So, watch out America. When Bubba's finger is wagging and his lips are moving, he's lying again!

"If a President of the United States ever lied to the American people, he should resign." --Bill Clinton, July, 1974

Hillary Shows Her True Colors

Hillary Clinton wants to be POTUS, which
means she would also be Commander in Chief of America's armed services.

Since formally announcing her presidential candidacy, Hillary has been portraying herself as a pro-military supporter of our men and women in uniform.

Well, that requires "the willing suspension of disbelief".

Hillary showed her 'true colors' as self-proclaimed 'co-president': she did not want uniformed military personnel in the Clinton White House.

When that didn't work out, she wanted uniformed military personnel to leave the room when she came in.

Hillary had uniformed military personnel serving canapes at White House functions.

There was a story about how she commanded a young White House Marine to fetch her another cup of coffee, and when he refused to leave his post, she threw the remains of her coffee in his face.

As a Senator she has consistently voted against funding the troops.

Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), not one to shy away from forcing Democrats to go on record, sponsored an amendment to the defense authorization bill which gave senators "a chance to distance themselves from the notion that some group has them on a leash, like a puppet on a string."

Yesterday's Senate vote condemning for a newspaper ad it ran last week attacking General David Petrae
us passed overwhelmingly 72-25.Hillary voted NAY ... her choice was not to support the amendment ... not to support our troop commander.

(Actually not one of the Democratic presidential candidates supported it, although Obama voted minutes earlier for an alternative resolution by Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif.)

Apparently the money provided by is more important to Hillary than actually supporting America's men and women serving their country. Those same men and women whom she wan
ts to command.

Hillary has showed her true colors again.

See how your
Senators voted on Amendment Number: S.Amdt. 2934 to S.Amdt. 2011 to H.R. 1585 (National Defense: Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008)

Not Forgotten: National POW/MIA Day

Congress has set aside the 3rd Friday of September in each year as National POW/MIA Recognition Day.

It is a time to remember those who never came home and to remind us that, while we enjoy the privileges of freedom, somewhere there are soldiers who have not been accounted for and may, in fa
ct, be held against their will by the enemies of Freedom.

Three American soldiers from the Iraq War remain POW / MIA:

Since April 9, 2004:
Keith Matthew "Matt" Maupin, Sgt, United States Army.
Since October 23, 2006:
Ahmed Altaie, Iraqi-American Army Specialist and Linguist,

Since May 12, 2007:
Byron Fouty , age 19, Army pvt:
Alex Jimenez, age 25, Army Spc:

You are NOT Forgotten!!

An Enormous Crime

September 21, 2007
National POW / MIA Recognition Day

It is a time to remember those who never came home and to remind us that somewhere there are soldiers who have not been accounted for and may, in fact, be held against their will by the enemies of Freedom.

At the end of the Vietnam War, there reportedly were
2,583 unaccounted-for American Prisoners missing or killed in action/body not recovered.

As of April 11, 2007, there are 1,786 Americans still missing, over 90% of them in Vietnam or in areas of Laos and Cambodia where Vietnamese forces operated during the war.

The enormous crime is the deliberate abandonment of 700 US POWs in Vietnam and Laos back in 1973 — and the continued cover-up of the existence of these men.

Former North Carolina Congressman Bill Hendon spent the last 25 years digging into intelligence files in an effort to learn what really happened to those POWs:

..."right at the end of Operation Homecoming, the men were released in groups and when the last group was ready to come out, Watergate crashed down on Nixon. That was the beginning of the end for Nixon and the beginning of the end for the unreturned prisoners.

The Vietnamese were going to release them once they got their money. We promised to pay that $4.75 billion. They gave us half of our guys back and when they didn't get the money they kept the other half. The money was never even appropriated by Congress.

Back on Jan. 26, 1981, the North Vietnamese signaled to the new Reagan-Bush administration that they would "sell" living U.S. POWs for $4 billion."
The book is titled "An Enormous Crime; The Definitive Account of American POWs Abandoned in Southeast Asia", written by former Rep. Bill Hendon and Beth Stewart, published by St. Martin's Press.

John Kerry 'Swiftboats' POWS

Friday, September 21st, is National POW/MIA Day.

Since John Kerry is in the news again, I thought a memory re-freshening might be in order.

On April 22, 1971 John Forbes Kerry, aka Hanoi John, as a leader of Vietnam Veterans Against the War, gave his infamous war-bashing
Testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, declaring -under oath- that he and many other veterans of that conflict were war criminals, and insisting that the United States had a definite obligation to make extensive economic reparations to the people of Vietnam.

Kerry mentioned that while in Paris about a year earlier, he had meetings with "both sides" of the Paris Peace Talks.

No doubt he meant the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong sides.

U.S. Veteran Dispatch noted in 1996:
“Kerry's testimony, it should be noted, occurred while some of his fellow Vietnam veterans were known by the world to be enduring terrible suffering as prisoners of war in North Vietnamese prisons. Kerry was a supporter of the ‘People's Peace Treaty,’" a supposed ‘people's’ declaration to end the war, reportedly drawn up in communist East Germany. It included nine points, all of which were taken from Viet Cong peace proposals at the Paris peace talks as conditions for ending the war.”
One of those points was a provision offering to set a date for the return of U.S. prisoners of war in exchange for the Americans setting a date for complete, unilateral military withdrawal from Vietnam. In other words, America could have her POWs back only if we would agree we lost, surrendered, and set a date to leave.

Kerry blatantly advocated the enemy's position while hundreds of captured American fighting men suffered as prisoners of war in North Vietnamese prisons.

Robert J. Caldwell October 24, 2004, San Diego Union-Tribune:
"Virtually all of America's former Vietnam prisoners of war also believe – with good reason, as North Vietnam's army commander has since said publicly – that the anti-war movement Kerry helped lead in the early 1970s encouraged Hanoi to fight on despite the odds - and prolonged the imprisonment of American POWs."
... Skip ahead 20 years ...

Senator John Kerry was named chairman of the Senate Select Committee on POW/MIA Affairs in 1992.

Kerry repeatedly praised his former enemy during committee visits to Vietnam.

Kerry and his committee determined in a 500-page final report that American POWs were left alive in Vietnam after the war but felt none were still alive. It made NO attempt to identify those left behind, how they died, who killed them or where their remains might be located.

The Upshot: In 1991-1992, Senators John Kerry and John McCain hijacked the U.S. Senate Select Committee on POWs in southeast Asia to pave the way to normalizing relations with Hanoi by writing off American POWS and POW/MIA families who wanted definitive answers as to what happened to their men.

After Kerry declared to the world, “President (GHW) Bush should reward Vietnam within a month for its increased cooperation in accounting for American MIAs", Vietnam announced it had granted Boston-based Colliers International the right as the exclusive real estate agent representing Vietnam. The company was positioned to rake in multi-millions of dollars in future contracts to upgrade Vietnam’s ports, railroads and other infrastructure.

C. Stewart Forbes, chief executive officer of Colliers International, is John Forbes Kerry’s cousin.

Ironically, Kerry 2004 presidential campaign's Web site stated:
“When John Kerry returned home from Vietnam, he joined his fellow veterans in vowing never to abandon future veterans of America’s wars. Kerry’s commitment to veterans has never wavered and stands strong to this day."

"I apologize to no one." -- John Forbes Kerry

Maddie the Mouth Is Still Hurling

Madeleine Albright, known liar, is still
hurling 'em right and left (mostly Left).Campaigning for Hillary Clinton in Iowa, Ms Albright characterized Clinton as `a caring person who understands the problems of real people`.

"There has been an attempt to portray her as a cold fish, and she is not. She's really a good friend and somebody who reaches out."
Yes, Hillary cares ... about herself and her ambitions.
Yes, Hillary reaches out ... for your money, for your vote, for whatever it takes Hill to get what Hillary wants.
Yes, Hillary is a good friend ... as long as you play by her rules.

Hillary understands nothing about the problems of real people because she hasn't been a real person for a really long time.

But I digress.

Albright was the first female Secretary of State, serving during the Clinton Follies, and as such was caught lying to Congress about intelligence regarding the North Korean underground nuclear facility at Kumchang-ri.

She maintained all was well, that 'the Agreed Framework* had frozen North Korea's dangerous nuclear weapons'.

In August 1998, US Intel became public that showed suspicious site activity and later reports said samples of bark, leaves, soil, and waste water collected from around the site tested positive for traces of radioactive plutonium, thereby leading to further speculation that the site contained or produced plutonium.

Albright told frustrated Senators at a Senate committee hearing that she hadn't known until later in July. The head of the Defense Intelligence Agency interrupted her, "Madame Secretary that isn't correct".

She had been told months earlier.

Ms Albright visited Pyongyang 2000, when she drank champagne with the North Korean tyrant Kim Jong-Il and praised North Korean nuclear & missile programs.

Maddie the Mouth's latest remarks:

"I believe that Iraq is going to go down in history as the greatest disaster in American foreign policy. That means that I am acknowledging it is worse than Vietnam."
Vietnam with 58,000 American dead, turned into a politically correct war run by idiot Washington politicians and the CBS Evening News. We didn't 'lose' Vietnam, no matter what Hanoi Jane Fonda, Walter Cronkite, Hanoi John Flip-Flop Kerry, and those drug-addled '60s flower-children-hippie liberals might think.

And as far as the 'greatest disaster in American foreign policy', that title goes to the eight years of Bubba Clinton's administration, in which Ms Albright played her part.

The inept Clinton foreign policy boiled down to "anything for peace", selling out to the Chinese and the North Koreans, ignoring the growing threat of Islamic terrorism, thinking 'sweet-talk' diplomacy solved all problems ... while the Chinese, North Koreans and Islamic terrorists laughed up their sleeves.``````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````

"What a blast it is to be here with Michael Moore."
-- Madeleine Albright
*Agreed Framework: Oct 1994; NK promised to freeze and eventually dismantle its nuclear program, to remain part of NPT ; to allow some IAEA inspection, although a full account of its weapons programs was put off; In exchange - the US would build light-water reactors for the North & deliver 500 tons of heavy fuel oil (it is against US law to sell nuke reactors to countries in violation of NPT, so the Clinton administration planned to subcontract work to allies) AND, according to the Agreed Framework, the only inspections North Korea must adhere to are IAEA inspections at specified facilities at the Yongbyon nuclear complex. Thus, North Korea is not obligated to permit inspections of Kumchang-ri.

(Who's the genius that came up with this?)

Hildabeast and the Three Stooges

It's like a Brothers Grimm Fairy Tale,
only true,
and grimmer.

It has been reported (not in the MSM, no surprise) that Hillary Clinton has been relying on a triumvirate of senior officials from her co-presidency days.

Stooge # 1
Sandy “Docs In My Socks” Berger
(National Security)
Clinton National Security adviser who managed to pretty much get away with stealing and destroying classified documents from the National Archives. These documents were relative to the Clinton administration’s anti-terror efforts and went
missing right before Bill Clinton’s testimony to the 9/11 commission.
Stooge # 2
Richard Holbrooke (Foreign Policy)
Clinton administration US Ambassador to Germany (1993-94), Assistant Secretary of State for European and Canadian Affairs (1994-99), and UN Ambassador (1999-2001); A little known chapter in Holbrooke’s career in the US government is his complicity in Indonesia’s campaign of genocide against East Timor.
 Stooge # 3 Madeleine Albright
The Clinton Follies Secretary of State who LIED to Congress about intelligence regarding underground nuclear facility at Kumchang-ri; Then praised the North Korean nuclear and missile programs while drinking champagne with Kim Jong-Il, another known liar.
Apparently Hillary wants to get a head start on creating new Clinton scandals.
"Nothing is so admirable in politics as a short memory." -- John Kenneth Galbraith

Welcome to Washington, General Petraeus

It's a sad, sorry state of affairs in this country when a principled, decent man does his job, does it well, and is blasted by a bunch of narrow-minded, hypocritical idiots (aka Congress) before he has a chance to speak one syllable.

Welcome to Washington, General Petraeus.
In the two days of hearings on Capitol Hill that you sat through, you were a helluva lot more impressive than the congressional idiots who had already made up their minds not to accept anything you might have to say.

These Congresspeople were elected to represent the American people.
The majority of them do not. They represent their own self-serving interests.

You probably didn't change any of their minds but at least your dignity and honor remained intact.

Even before the hearings began,, in the great tradition of liberal politics, accused General David Petraeus ("Betrayus") of "cooking the books" and charged him with 'betraying the American peoples' trust by spinning the facts so as to support the White House.

Our country is being betrayed alright, but not by our military ... By the damned liberal politicians and liberal organizations like and Code Pink-o. Barking Moonbats all.

General Petraeus' response to all the hubub:
“Needless to say I disagree with the message of those exercising the first amendment that so many generation of soldiers have fought and died protecting ...”
Congresspeople, especially you Lantos, Reid, and Clinton, take note: That was class.
"Patriotic dissent is a luxury of those protected by better men than they."

Hillary and Funny Money, Part $$$

Hillary REALLY, REALLY wants to be president.
So much so that she's giving back money, a lot of it, to avoid yet another Clinton scandal -
$850,000 raised by Democratic fundraiser Norman Hsu, one of her top fundraisers.

Hillary had previously planned to give only $23,000 to charity, but since the FBI is now investigating Hsu for allegedly violating election laws, the campaign
will now return a much larger wad of the funny money.

Hsu, regarded as a top party fundraiser, has raised and donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Democratic Party groups and federal candidates since 2004. ... until recent reports surfaced that he was wanted on a warrant in California in connection with a 1991 grand theft charge, and may be looking at other federal charges. (Oops!)

The Clinton spin machine goes into overdrive.
The Clinton campaign has announced it will vigorously review its fundraisers, including thorough criminal background checks, in the future.

Hillary's campaign has never bothered to check where the money was coming from before...

Ms Clinton "simply didn't want to have to keep answering questions about a bundler whose background is now clearly in question," a senior adviser said, speaking only on condition of

Hillary wasn't concerned about the origin of the money, she just didn't want the inconvenience of

Clintonian Fool: David Tarbell

David Tarbell, director of the Defense Technology Security Administration under Clinton-Gore, ordered the mass shredding of Pentagon records that could have documented some of the most serious Chinagate allegations against the Clinton-Gore administration.

When the DTSA moved its offices, Tarbell, a Clinton holdover at the Pentagon, told subordinates that the new facility couldn't accommodate the documents.

These documents included top secret intelligence reports on foreign weapons programs and front companies, and memoranda documenting Pentagon decisions to allow U.S. companies to sell advanced technology directly to Russian and Chinese military facilities.

Much of the secret material was so highly restricted that documents had to be signed out when viewed. At Tarbell's direction, even those access logs have been destroyed, erasing any paper trail that might show who handled the super-sensitive records.

The entire record of what happened over the past eight years is gone.

"Dave Tarbell bears personal responsibility for giving the Chinese military everything they need to fight the next war. He has been highly successful -- in giving away our military technology." --Stephen D. Bryen, a DOD official under Reagan/Bush.
Bryen created DTSA in 1985 as part of President Reagan's effort to deny the Soviet Union access to advanced Western military technology. He has been a vocal critic of the Clinton administration's decontrol of sensitive technology, testifying before Congress repeatedly on the importance of maintaining controls on U.S. military exports to slow China's military modernization.

"Tarbell endorsed the Clinton administration plans to decontrol supercomputers, which have all gone into the Chinese nuclear-weapons and missile programs. He backed the release of hot-section technology, which has enabled the Chinese military to build new combat jet engines. He promoted the decontrol of military-grade Global Positioning System technologies, which the Chinese are now using to guide their nuclear missiles. He ought to be fired and find another job."
He damn well ought to go to prison.

Not Forgotten: September 11, 2001

The mass murder of 3,000 innocent people on American soil was a declaration of war by an insidious enemy determined on destroying our society, our culture, and all those of us who resist.

They'd like nothing better than for our memories to fade.
Which they have.

They are depending on our divisiveness.
Which we are.

They are counting on us being hopeful of some diplomatic "solution."
Which some deluded politicians are.

They are infiltrating our country while they plot and prepare their next assaults, likely far worse than the ones they have already committed.

I remember the images of the planes being flown into the WTC towers and imagining the horror of the people on the planes and those in the towers.

I remember the images of people jumping from the Twin Towers — head first, feet first, solo, hand-in-hand, to escape the inferno of burning jet fuel. What an absolutely unimaginable choice that must have been.

I remember watching the towers collapse and then seeing that nightmare cloud of dust, filled with god knows what, billowing down the street between buildings, overtaking people. It was like something out of a Sci-Fi movie. Only this was not fiction.

I remember the images of the Pentagon, on fire, walls collapsing.

I remember the image of the aircraft outline burned into the Pennsylvania field and thinking that if anything ever deserved a Hollywood ending, Flight 93 did. But this was real life with real people, and the ending was all too real.

I remember how our enemies cheered.

I remember how Americans came together, political ideologies forgotten (except for the lunatic fringe).

I remember how patriotism became a good thing again and how our military was truly supported.

Americans have notoriously short memories.
But our enemies do not.

They are watching and paying attention; when a politician declares that the war on terror is just a 'bumper sticker', they are listening.

Make no mistake, we are at war, and will be at war for a long time. We are facing enemies who seethe with hatred for America and our way of life, and these enemies are willing to die to bring death and destruction to America.

Despite anti-war rhetoric, the war in Iraq is a part of the overall war on terrorism. It is a war we must win; if we fail to prevail, we will sooner or later be fighting them in America.

We are in a battle to the death, ours or theirs.

Let's make it theirs.

This American Flag was recovered from the smoking rubble of the WTC.

Tag, You're Not It!

The classic schoolyard game of Tag (You're it!) is now not allowed on some school playgrounds.

Apparently some wussy kids complained that they were 'harassed' or 'chased against their will' during recess.

So their wussy parents and wussy teachers, people raising and teaching kids that will no doubt be unable to cope with the real world, placed tag
on the Politically Correct Banned List.
"It causes a lot of conflict on the playground,"
said Cindy Fesgen, assistant principal of the Discovery Canyon Campus school.
When will these children be allowed to experience conflict so they can learn how to deal with it?

Apparently never, if their Politically correct idiot parents and teachers have anything to do about it.

But running games are still allowed as long as the kids don't chase each other.

Hey, Football is a running game and involves chasing and being chased.

Try doing away with football and see what happens.

Talk about conflict.

We're Kicking Ass ... Our Own

When president Bush was recently asked about Iraq, he told the Australian Deputy Prime Minister, "We're kicking ass".

Not only the enemy's ass, but apparently our own as well...

Phil Brennan of NewsMax reports that the Thomas More Law Center charged today that The Secretary of the Navy has punished three top combat officers for reasons of political expediency.
"Despite the exoneration of Marines actually involved in "kicking the enemy's ass" in the fighting in Haditha on November 19, 2005, three senior Marine officers -- Maj.Gen. Richard Huck , Col. Robert Sokoloski, and Col. Stephen Davis -- have been administratively censured by the Secretary of the Navy for their involvement in the Haditha events."
According to Richard Thompson, president and chief counsel of the Thomas More Law Center,
“The Secretary of the Navy has sacrificed three senior, combat-experienced warriors on the altar of political expediency to appease anti-war politicians and the liberal media. These Marines, who have dedicated their lives in defense of our country, deserve better. It’s insanity; it will turn combat commanders into ‘paper pushers’ and will have far-reaching deleterious effect on the fighting spirit of Marines on the ground.”
Brian Rooney, an attorney at the Law Center and a former Marine officer and veteran of the bitter combat in the second battle of Fallujah:
"These men all concluded that a formal investigation was not required. However, it is odd that the Marine Corps has decided to publicly censure these good men who have dedicated their lives to the service of their Corps and country when the recent Article 32 facts are turning out to be what these men on the ground believed them to be — a hard fought battle — not a massacre. The Secretary of the Navy is essentially censuring these men for not investigating a crime that never occurred.”
The decision to launch a criminal investigation of the November 19, 2005 Haditha incident was made three months after its occurrence as a result of a Time Magazine news lead, which military commanders in the field knew was instigated by terrorist propaganda.

The Law Center noted that the censure letters, do confirm that there was no ‘cover-up’ by any of the officers involved.

Added Thompson,
“This action is especially inappropriate considering Staff Sgt. Wuterich is in the middle of his Article 32 Hearing. We have always said that the Marines acted appropriately on November 19th — within the rules of engagement. Cpl. Sharrat has been officially exonerated, Cpl. Tatum has basically been as well, and Capt. Stone, too. The question must be asked: 'Why, now that the facts are coming out in favor of the Marines, has this action been taken?'”
Why indeed?

It's time for politicians and anti-military liberals to realize that we cannot win a politically correct war.

It's time for our troops to be allowed to do what they have been trained to do, "Kick the Enemy's ass" !!

Hillary's 35 Years of (Dubious) Experience

"Change is just a word if you don't have the strength and experience to make it happen. I bring 35 years of experience to make the changes I think we need to make in America."
Changes like bigger government, socialized medicine, inept cronyism and less national security?

Let's take a look at some of Hillary's 35 years of experience:

Yale student Hillary was recruited by leftist professor Tommy The Commie Emerson to monitor the murder trial of The New Haven Nine (Black Panthers) for the ACLU; Hillary also helped edit the Yale Review of Law and Social Action – a left-wing journal which promoted cop-killing and featured cartoons of pig-faced police.

She was appointed by President Goober in 1977 to the Legal Services Corp, a federally-funded non-profit organization; she oversaw a $90 million-$321 million budget, which she wielded to try to defeat California tax-cutting proposition 9; to support to legal efforts in Michigan to give standing to 'Black English/Ebonics' as a separate language movement;
and doled out $260 million to various liberal causes.

Hillary chaired the New World Foundation, a public charity, through which she granted $15,000 to Grassroots International, which funneled the money to the Union of Palestinian Working Women's Committee & the Union of Palestinian Medical Relief Committees (both branches of the PLO).

In her years with the Rose Law Firm in Arkansas, there were the Cattle futures, Whitewater and Castle Grande scandals.

Co-President Hillary's effort for comprehensive health-care reform, aka H
illarycare, was a total debacle.

Once Hillarycare went down in flames, her main focus in the administration became scandal defense and avoiding indictment for perjury and obstruction of justice. Every non-sexual scandal associated with the Clinton White House had Hillary's fingerprints all over it.
(Travelgate, Filegate, Fostergate, Chinagate)

She did garner some experience with program development: WHO DB, a $1.6 million taxpayer-funded database that contained: vital statistics, SS #, ethnicity, political associations, sexual preference of MORE than 350,000 members of Congress, state and local officials, journalists, supporters and donors from the lists of the DNC and officials from the Reagan and Bush 41 administrations;

Let's not forget a favorite Clinton ploy - wielding the IRS as a personal weapon (targets included Juanita Broaddrick, Katherine Prudhomme, Kathleen Willey, Paula Jones, Billy Dale, Pat and Glenn Mendoza- any of these sound familiar? All were audited).

Hillary decided to run for the Senate and extended her experience in scandal. Bubba pardoned the FALN terrorists to get Latino support in New York, and the New Square Hassidim to get Jewish support. (Pardongate)

The Clintons left the White House with $400,000 worth of furniture & gifts belonging to the White House, not them. (Lootgate)

As a Senator, Hillary has done nothing of note except to raise massive sums of money for herself and her colleagues and making a lot more money writing and selling her memoirs.

Her efforts on behalf of New York post-9/11 have been exposed as largely belonging her colleague's, Chuck Schumer, for which she took credit.

Hillary has passed no important legislation, except for 20 bills renaming post offices and courthouses and congratulating Alexander Hamilton, Shirley Chisolm, Harriet Tubman, the American Republic, and the Syracuse men's and women's Lacrosse team on their respective accomplishments.

Oh, and her vote for the Iraq War .... it wasn't her fault ....
By her own admission, Hillary didn't bother to read the National Intelligence Estimate on Iraq before voting to authorize President Bush to use force in 2002.
Apparently she was briefed by her staffers who were misled by faulty intelligence.

Is this the experience upon which her candidacy is based?

CNN anchor Bernard Shaw: "Now wait a minute now, this woman brings a lot of strength."

Newsday columnist Jimmy Breslin: "What strength?"

Shaw: "Don’t you agree that she brings a lot of strength to what she is trying to do?"

Breslin: "No, I think that the strength comes from a lot of people on television or in newspapers that just write drivel."

Hillary and Funny Money, Part $$

Hillary Clinton and funny money go together like Bill Clinton and anything with big boobs.

The California Court of Appeals, Second Appellate District, will hear arguments about whether Hillary Clinton should be a defendant in a lawsuit brought by Hollywood mogul Peter Paul. An earlier ruling dismissed Hillary Clinton from a previous lawsuit under a statute that protects politicians from harassing or frivolous lawsuits. Paul's legal team argues the statute does not apply to a political figure who violates the law.

Attorneys for each side will also debate the inclusion as evidence of a videotape in which Clinton can be heard agreeing to plan a fund-raiser, which was later determined to be illegal by the Federal Elections Commission (FEC).

This videotape "captures the very commission of a crime, namely, that of knowingly soliciting, coordinating and accepting federal campaign contributions far in excess of the legal limit of $2,000."

This harks back to Galagate, an August 2000 Hollywood event that was titled the "Bill Clinton Farewell Tribute" but was in fact a fund raiser for Hillary that took in $1.5 million for Hillary's Senate campaign.

After failing to properly report the money raised, Clinton's campaign finance director, David Rosen, was accused of lying to the FEC and the Clinton Senate campaign paid a $35,000 fine to the FEC.

Paul said:
"Everything I complained about in 2001, and she denied, was supported in the Rosen trial and the FEC. Only her direct knowledge continues to be denied, and the tape contradicts that. Hillary's obstruction is worse than Nixon's obstruction in Watergate."
In a written declaration for the California court filed on April 7, 2006, Clinton said that she did not remember discussions with Paul about the fundraiser.
"I have no recollection whatsoever of discussing any arrangement with him whereby he would support my campaign for the United States Senate in exchange for anything from me or then-President Clinton. I do not believe I would make such a statement because I believe I would remember such a discussion if it had occurred."
(Hillary, the 'smartest woman on earth' apparently has convenient memory lapses)

If Clinton helped to plan the event, it could legally constitute a direct hard money donation to her Senate campaign, and if that is the case, the donation from Paul would be more than a thousand times the legal limit for an individual donation.

Knowingly soliciting an individual contribution of $25,000 or more is a felony punishable by up to five years in prison.

Be still my heart.
"The Clintons represent the worst in modern American politics: ruthless ambition over a desire to serve; preoccupation with political funding over a fair system; opportunism over principle; betrayal of any cause or policy over taking a stand; and a desperation to gain and keep office over any obligation to honor its responsibilities." -- Christopher Reed, in the Los Angles Times

Whoopi, Another FOOL

I don't always agree with what Susan Estrich writes, but she happens to be absolutely right about the following:
"Whoopi, a woman who is clearly at her best delivering lines written by other people, used her first day on “The View” to insult every dog-loving American from the South.

You know, that region of the country where it’s part of the culture to torture dogs, and drown them and hang them if they don’t run fast enough to please you.

According to Whoopi’s defense of the disgusting criminal named Michael Vick, abusing dogs “is part of his cultural upbringing."

Cultural upbringing? Is this how Whoopi raises her family?

"For a lot of people, dogs are sport. Instead of just saying he is a beast and he's a monster, this is a kid who comes from a culture where this is not questioned."

What is wrong with this woman? Torturing dogs, putting them on a “rape stand” to force them to breed, hitting them with sharp sticks to make them run faster, and then executing the ones who don’t, doesn’t fit any definition of “sport” I’ve ever heard of, at least outside of concentration camps.

Michael Vick is a 27 year-old multimillionaire, not a “kid” who deserves anyone’s sympathy or understanding.

I don’t know what “culture” it is where this kind of behavior is “not questioned,” but wherever it is, federal authorities should be investigating it.

Why would any semi-sentient person want to listen to this woman’s “views?”
Why does she get a megaphone to spread vile?

Ms Goldberg spent her 2nd day on 'The View', denying she ever defended Michael Vick, saying the media misunderstood when she said she could see how Vick could get into dogfighting growing up in the South.Why should growing up in the South be an excuse for abominable behavior?

Because Southerners are ... what?
Please give me a clue, Ms Goldberg.
Oh, wait, you don't have one.
And couldn't that "part of his cultural upbringing" remark be considered just a bit, well, racist?

If a white person had said that, Whoopi and Brothers Al and Jesse would have been all over it like flies on dog poop.

I'm fed up with these celebrity idiots and political fools and every dimwit in between who whine about all the problems in this country and continue to say and do things which just keep fomenting all the same damn problems.

Seems to me like 'The View' has replaced one big-mouthed idiot Fool with another big-mouthed idiot Fool.

I won't be watching this one either.

Hillary's Clintonesque Math

Hillary Clinton thinks that her political negatives are a positive, a "fortunate blessing" even.

I can just imagine a certain portion of the American public nodding in agreement.

If the 'smartest woman on earth' says so, it must be so.

I may have only a state university education, not Wellesley or Yale, but I do know that 'political negatives' do not add up to a 'fortunate blessing' no matter what formula you use.

It must be Clintonesque math.

What are her political negatives anyway?

She's a woman.... This isn't necessarily a negative. I think a woman could be president, and I'd vote for a woman, just not HER.

She's scripted.... Hillary won't/can't answer an unrehearsed question. She relies on her 'handlers' to get questions before-hand so they can review and refuse them if necessary.

She's unlikeable.... Unless you like cold, ambitious, angry, arrogant, corrupt, duplicitous, paranoid, ruthless, and elitist people.

She's a socialist.... No matter how times in how many ways she tries to reinvent herself, she's a socialist.
"We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good."
All that 'it takes a village' to raise a child crap?
No, it does not. It takes parents.

Hillarycare was socialized medicine all dressed up as 'universal health care'.

Earlier this year she promised that a third Clinton administration would seize oil company profits and use the money for government projects.

Google 'Saul Alinsky', the subject of her locked-away Wellesley thesis.

She monitored the Black Panther trial at Yale for 'Tommy the Commie' Emerson, her leftist law professor and mentor; summer of 1972, she interned at the Berkeley office of attorney Robert Treuhaft, a hard-line Stalinist who quit the Communist Party in 1958 only because it was losing members and was no longer a good platform for his activism and who dedicated his entire legal career to advancing the agenda of the Soviet Communist Party and the KGB.

She's a liar.... as First Lady she:

* obstructed justice by keeping her billing records, a document sought under subpoena, in the White House residence.
* lied to investigators about her knowledge about billing records.
* lied to investigators about her involvement in the Castle Grande land scam.
* lied to investigators about her involvement in the firing of Travel Office Employees.

She's a flip-flopper.... For the war, then against the war but for the troops, but not for funding the troops.

Clinton's vote for the war wasn't her fault....
she didn't bother to read the National Intelligence Estimate on Iraq before she voting to authorize President Bush to use force in 2002.

She now claims she was misled by faulty intelligence she never read, but rather was briefed by staffers.

She's polarizing.... Love her, hate her. Despise her.

She's got baggage....

Cattlegate. Whitewater. Travelgate. Filegate. Chinagate. Galagate.
Vandalgate. Lootgate.

She's got bigger baggage....

His name is William Jefferson Clinton.

Some deluded people think he's a positive.

He's a ZERO.

"I think Elizabeth Moynihan, Senator Moynihan’s wife, had it right when she told me that Hillary is "duplicitous." Hillary acts as though she is chosen by God, and that gives her the right to use any means to justify her ends." -- Edward Klein
