Matt Maupin Is Coming Home...

Image
... at last.
“Matt is coming home. He’s completed his mission"his father, Keith Maupin, said.

Army Sgt. Keith Matthew Maupin had been listed as Missing-captured in Iraq since April 9, 2004, after his convoy was ambushed.






A week later the Al-Jazeera tv network aired a videotape showing Sgt Maupin sitting on the floor surrounded by masked men holding automatic weapons.
Then in June, another tape was aired that purported to show a U.S. soldier being murdered. The tape was dark and grainy, showing only the back of the victim's head.

Nearly four years after his capture, Sgt Maupin has been found in Iraq.
The U.S. Army notified the Maupin family that Matt had been identified through DNA.

Lest we forget: 3 U.S. soldiers remain listed as Missing-Captured.

The Mini-Me Clinton

Chelsea, the Mini-Me Hillary, has had a tough week.

First, while campaigning for Mom in Indiana, she was asked about the version of the Tuzla-run for cover from the snipers-story (lie) Mom has been telling, and has (thankfully) at last been called on.

"Well sir, I think that my mother’s on record as having talked about this and I support what she said. I mean, I was there as well and I’m so honored that I was there."A truly Clintonesque* answer.
Watch and Listen here

Then at another event, she was asked whether her mother's credibility had been hurt during the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
"Wow, you're the first person actually that's ever asked me that in the, I don't know, maybe 70 college campuses that I've now been to and I do not think that's any of your business", responded Chelsea.The question was regarding Mom's credibility which absolutely is our business, if she wants to be POTUS.
"Sorry to pile on, but listen up, hon. Seriously. “No…

Hillary's Fantastical Adventure

Image
Fantastical: conceived or seemingly conceived by unrestrained fancy; so extreme as to challenge belief
"I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base."
--Hillary Clinton, speech at GW University, March 17, 2008.Liar.

The Washington Postdoes not remember it that way and here's the picture of the greeting ceremony that Hillary claims didn't happened:


The Post reporter:
"Had Hillary Clinton’s plane come “under sniper fire” in March 1996, we would certainly have heard about it long before now. Numerous reporters, including the Washington Post’s John Pomfret, covered her trip. A review of nearly 100 news accounts of her visit shows that not a single newspaper or television station reported any security threat to the First Lady. …Far from running to an airport building with their heads down, Clinton and her party were g…

Army Spc. Monica Lin Brown, a 19-year-old medic from Texas became the first woman in Afghanistan and only the second woman since World War II to receive the Silver Star, the nation’s third-highest medal for valor.Spc Brown, of the 4th Squadron, 73rd Cavalry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, was part of a four-vehicle convoy patrolling near Jani Kheil in the eastern province of Paktia on April 25, 2007, when a bomb struck one of the Humvees.Spc Brown used her body to shield wounded comrades as she ran through insurgent gunfire and mortar shelling.“I did not really have time to be scared,” Brown said. “Running back to the vehicle, I was nervous (since) I did not know how badly the guys were injured. That was scary.”The military said Brown’s “bravery, unselfish actions and medical aid rendered under fire saved the lives of her comrades and represents the finest traditions of heroism in combat.”
Bravo Zulu = Well Done!

Wright and Wrong

From Robbie Cooper at UrbanGrounds:
Barack Obama Shucks and Jives His Way Through Racism Speech
... If Barack Obama wanted to preach the story of unity and racial harmony, perhaps he should have started with his own Reverend (Wright) and his own wife...
From Barack’s own mouth today: “Did I ever hear him make remarks that could be considered controversial while I sat in church? Yes.
Contrast that with his words from just a few days ago when he lied to the American public, “I have never heard Rev. Wright preach hatred of America.”
So what else is wrong?
How about this Hypocrisy ...
Obama 1st WH Contender to Call for Imus' Firing Over Racial Slur

"I understand MSNBC has suspended Mr. Imus, but I would also say that there's nobody on my staff who would still be working for me if they made a comment like that about anybody of any ethnic group. And I would hope that NBC ends up having that same attitude." Barack Hussein Obama to ABC NewsIt is my humble opinion that someone s…

Fallen Hero: Major Alan Rogers

Image
From Field Notes:
WASHINGTON – Army Major Alan Rogers had no family of his own, so his friends became his family, and scores of them turned out Friday to say good-bye to him.Rogers was killed Jan. 27 by a roadside bomb in Baghdad. He was buried with full military honors at Arlington National Cemetery.

An Army band led the procession down Bradley Road to Rogers' grave site, followed by a horse-drawn caisson and all of those friends – civilian and military, young and old, black and white, one of whom he contacted just hours before his death.""He just said he missed us and he couldn't wait to come home."

The Audacity of Hate

Senator Barack Hussein Obama has tried to distance himself from his "Mentor", but onlysincethe furor that erupted last week.


The Autonomist tells it:
Now that his racist, America-hating pastor Jeremiah Wright is finally in the spotlight, Barack Obama is making the media rounds denouncing Wright's controversial statements. However, there's strong evidence that Obama isn't being exactly truthful in his denunciations.

Presidential candidate Barack Hussein Obama preaches on the campaign trail that America needs a new consensus based on faith and bipartisanship, yet he continues to attend a controversial Chicago church whose pastor routinely refers to "white arrogance" and "the United States of White America." In fact, Obama was in attendance at the church when these statements were made on July 22.

. . . Wright's strong sentiments were echoed in the Sunday morning service attended by NewsMax Wright laced into America's establishment, blaming t…
