ACORN, Obama, and the Mortgage Mess

ACORN, Obama, and the Mortgage Mess

Townhall.....for complete article

by Mona Charen

ACORN attracted Barack Obama in his youthful community organizing days. Madeline Talbott hired him to train her staff — the very people who would later descend on Chicago’s banks as CRA shakedown artists. The Democratic nominee later funneled money to the group through the Woods Fund, on whose board he sat, and through the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, ditto. Obama was not just sympathetic — he was an ACORN fellow traveler.

Now you could make the case that before 2008, well-intentioned people were simply unaware of what their agitation on behalf of non-credit-worthy borrowers could lead to. But now? With the whole financial world and possibly the world economy trembling and cracking like a cement building in an earthquake, Democrats continue to try to fund their friends at ACORN? And, unashamed, they then trot out to the TV cameras to declare “the party is over” for Wall Street (Nancy Pelosi)? The party should be over for the Democrats who brought us to this pass. If Obama wins, it means hiring an arsonist to fight a fire.

Obama.... dirty, dirty, dirty politics-as-usual.

Rofl! Today Rush called Obama a little squirrel!

Squirrels love ACORNs, don't they?? heh heh Good one for ElRushbo.

A past quote from 2007 buy Obama:

"I’ve been fighting alongside ACORN on issues you care about my entire career. Even before I was an elected official, when I ran Project Vote voter registration drive in Illinois, ACORN was smack dab in the middle of it, and we appreciate your work." — Barack Obama, Speech to ACORN, November 2007

Obama, during his four-year tenure in Chicago as a community organizer, worked as a trainer for the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now — the infamous ACORN, whose affiliate, Project Vote, is known for voter fraud — the same ACORN from which a mighty mortgage mess has grown.

Upon his return to Chicago after Harvard Law School, Obama provided legal representation for ACORN and for Tony Rezko (recently convicted of bribery and money laundering), who was Obama’s main money man during his years in the Illinois State Senate. Rezko had helped the Obamas purchase a home in Chicago’s politically correct Hyde Park. Obama sat on the boards of the philanthropic Woods Foundation and the Joyce Foundation, both of whom funneled millions of dollars to ACORN.

Karl Rove Blasts Pelosi as Most Vicious Speech

Karl Rove said Democrats were already talking about how they were going to use the vote to attack Republicans before the votes were even counted. He blasts Speaker Pelosi for one of the most vicious speeches in US House history.

Congress Floor Monday - 9/29/08 Nancy Pelosi

The videos have a fuzzy thing to them but it does not last, it is not from this blog or YouTube, it is from the original filming of them. I jsut wanted to let you know what to expcet. LOL Maybe it is the Pelosi the witch that zapped them. hahaaha -- Wild Thing

$700 billion a staggering number but only a part of the cost of the failed Bush economic policies to our country."

Pelosi #2 "anything goes mentality"

Wild Thing's comment...........

Poor Nancy due to her NON leadership in Congress it has the lowest rating of any Congress as far as I know. And she did soooo promise it would not be corrupt too. We keep hearing about Bush's failed Presidency and yet Nancy has failed much more, turning off the lights and locking the door when her own voters back home were paying high gas prices along with the rest of us. Did she care? Heck no!

She had to have her own plane so she could haul herself and her family and friends back and forth and around our country as OUR expense.

What would be reallly great is if this next election she would lose her leadership bipity bop and the Democrats would lose being in the majority.

'Cow patty,' Booze the Metaphors and Analogies on House Floor

'Cow patty,' booze denote mess on House floor

USA Today

Here's a sampling of some metaphors and analogies that made their way into the rhetoric on the House floor, both in support and against the $700 billion bailout package. The measure, and the market, ultimately took a nose dive:

• "This is a huge cow patty with a piece of marshmallow stuck in the middle," Rep. Paul Broun, R-Ga., said of the package. "I'm not going to eat that cow patty."

• "We don't have a perfect bill," said Rep. Paul Kanjorski, D-Pa. "We do have a perfect storm."

• "We have individuals who are drunks and regulators who are pouring the drinks," said Rep. Gregory Meeks, D-N.Y., as he attempted to compare the faltering economy to drunken drivers. "We have to clear the highway."

• "Like an explorer in uncharted territory, none of us in this body have any good judgment or insight into what happens if we don't pass this bill," said Rep. Spencer Bachus, of Alabama, the top Republican on the House Financial Services Committee.

• "The golden parachutes have been exchanged for camouflage parachutes," said Rep. Peter DeFazio, D-Ore., of the proposal's goal of limiting executive compensation.

• "We are watching one domino after another fall, that are the pillars of our financial system in the United States," said Rep. Adam Putnam, R-Fla., a member of the House GOP leadership team.

House, Senate Democrats Derail Package of Tax Cuts

House, Senate Democrats derail package of tax cuts

The Hill

A blowup between the Senate and conservative House Democrats has derailed a package of tax cuts, including tax incentives for renewable-energy production, which Democratic leaders hoped to count as a major accomplishment.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) bluntly told Democratic Senate leaders to show some backbone and stand up to Republicans who oppose the House version of the tax package, which includes offsets.

“We’ve been willing to compromise on everything, but not on fiscal sanity. That is why we ask Senate Democrats to stand up to the Republican minority,” said Hoyer.

But Senate Democrats fired back at their Democratic colleagues in the House, accusing them of taking too adamant a stance in the face of overwhelming opposition.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) pleaded with House Democrats to understand his difficult position: a slim majority, procedural rules that empower minority opposition, and the regular absence of three members of his caucus.

“I do not have the strength and the power — legislatively, procedurally — that they have in the House,” said Reid on the chamber floor.

“My majority is extremely slim, 51-49, when everybody is here,” he said. “I just beg my House colleagues to understand, this isn’t something that we are trying to surprise them with.”

House Democrats, led by Hoyer and members of the conservative Blue Dog Coalition, flatly rejected a Senate package that included energy tax relief extensions, business tax relief extensions and an extension of Alternative Minimum Tax relief.

Senate negotiators combined those tax breaks with disaster relief, mental health parity legislation and a bill to help rural schools.

The unexpected hard-line stance taken by House Democrats caught their Senate counterparts by surprise. Most painfully for Democratic leaders, the flare-up threatens renewable-energy tax breaks, which they hoped to count as a significant achievement of the 110th Congress.

“It’s unthinkable to leave town without renewing the tax extenders for renewable energy,” said Sen. Byron Dorgan (N.D.), chairman of the Senate Democratic Policy Committee.

A Democratic lobbyist said leaders had hoped their candidates would be able to tout the renewable-energy tax breaks on the campaign trail.

“They want to go home and campaign on that,” said the lobbyist.

A victory on taxes would have helped offset the loss they suffered on offshore drilling.

Congressional leaders this weekend sent to President Bush a $630 billion stopgap spending measure that lifted the congressional moratorium on offshore drilling.

Conservative Democrats balked at the Senate-crafted package because it failed to offset the cost of many of the tax-relief extensions, said a senior Democratic aide. The Senate bill would cost $107 billion over 10 years.

Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), a member of the Senate Finance Committee, said House Democrats should accept the Senate package because it passed by an overwhelming vote in the upper chamber and Bush has promised to sign it. He noted that Bush has vowed to veto the House alternative package.

House Democrats wanted to help pay for the proposals in their package by closing what they call tax “loopholes” for hedge fund managers.

“That’s why we ask Senate Democrats to stand firm against the Republicans insisting on the principle that we must finance tax cuts with debt,” Hoyer said.

The derailment of the tax package also threatens to subject tens of millions of Americans to higher Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) rates next year, a scary political scenario for many Democrats who represent higher-income areas of the nation, such as the Northeast, that would be the hardest-hit.

Sen. Jon Kyl (Ariz.), the Republican whip, told The Hill that Republicans would not support AMT relief legislation if it were separated from the larger package.

Senate Republicans have refused to consider any alternative to the carefully negotiated package of tax cuts that it sent to the House early Monday.

Reid told his House counterparts that, otherwise, he would accept their proposal to break the tax package up into smaller pieces.

“If it were up to me, I would accept this in a second,” said Reid.

But House Democrats are getting sick of the Senate’s hardball tactics.

Citing an attempt earlier in the 110th Congress to force House Democrats to accept a Senate-drafted surveillance bill without changes, Hoyer said his colleagues are not going to let themselves be jammed again.

“We’ve seen it before. Some of you remember FISA — the message was the same, ” said Hoyer, in reference to an overhaul of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. “Legislation by blunt force is not the way, as I said, we ought to proceed.”

Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.), chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, said that House Democrats may be more open to compromise in the wake of the defeat of a $700 billion Wall Street bailout package, which sent the stock market plummeting more than 700 points.

Economic experts warn that millions of Americans could lose their jobs if a rescue plan doesn’t pass.

Baucus predicted that House Democrats would be more amenable when faced with the prospect of letting tax breaks expire while the nation’s economy teeters on the brink of recession.

“There are more dynamics in play now,” he said, speaking of how the bailout would affect negotiations on tax cuts. “Things are related.”

Wild Thing's comment...........

Cannot quit laughing — The Dem Majority wants them to stand up to the Minority. What am I missing here?

The Blue Dogs are panicked... they're worried about the election. They just helped to shoot down the socialist bailout.

I thought Obama was uniting the libs. They can’t even stand each other. Wow, a bill without any money for a new highway? That might be a first. LOL

You got to laugh. Laugh or go insane. I choose laughter.

Republicans just need to run ads highlighting their experiment with the Democrat Majority has failed miserably and provide the examples.

Americans who earned what they have, are tired of poor decisions by people who default on their mortgages and by the poor decisions made by businesses that lent them the money and we want to save the country from socialism

Obama and His Team Believe He Can Win By A Landslide

Barack Obama's team believes he can win by a landslide

Barack Obama's senior aides believe he is on course for a landslide election victory over John McCain and will comfortably exceed most current predictions in the race for the White House. for complete article

Their optimism, which is said to be shared by the Democratic candidate himself, is based on information from private polling and on faith in the powerful political organisation he has built in the key swing states.

Insiders say that Mr Obama's apparent calm through an unusually turbulent election season is because he believes that his strength among first time voters in several key states has been underestimated, both by the media and by the Republican Party.

Mr Obama has come under fire from within Democratic ranks over his message and his tactics. Critics say he has failed to connect with the blue-collar workers seen as crucial to winning the election, and too reluctant to make direct attacks on Mr McCain.

But his aides are convinced that he has a strong chance of winning no fewer than nine states won by George W.Bush in the closely contested 2000 election, including former Republican strongholds like North Carolina, Virginia and even Indiana, which have not voted Democrat for a generation.

David Axelrod, Obama's chief strategist, said last week that Obama had "a lot of opportunity" in states which Mr Bush won four years ago

Wild Thing's comment...........

"he believes that his strength among first time voters in several key states has been underestimated"

First no one will know till the votes are all in and secondly the "first time voters" does not mean they will be reliable and vote when it is time. It is one thing to get tons of new voters registered and another for them to follow through.

We know they are very organized, so much so that I have never seen anything like it. The teenagers going door to door in neighborhoods telling people to vote for Obama and his Camp Obama's and all the other things.

But we have a tremendous draw with Gov. Sarah Palin, she is awesome and real. Conservatives are not known to sit home when they have a conservative to vote for especially.

Either way this will be one exciting and scary and nervous Nov. 4th and I pray we win.

Liberal Outrage: A Pro-McCain March In Manhattan

"A Pro-McCain march on the Upper West Side in Manhattan on Sunday, September 21, 2008. A group of McCain-Palin supporters dare to march through the Upper West Side - infidels in the liberal Mecca. Local "progressives" boo, jeer, and flip fingers at them with a rage they never display even to this country's enemies. We would like them to take a look at themselves in this video and maybe learn a few things about the human condition that the academia has obviously left out. "....from the person that did the video.

haha Liberals invented the definition of what rude means. I have heard in the news that Obama followers and they are followers not just voters, have stolen McCain/Palin yard signs, spray painted on garage doors the word in huge lettering ' OBAMA", keyed cars, and other things.

C-Span NOW Has Debate!! Call Your Rep.'s Tell Them To Stop This Socialism from The Left

Conservatives Come Out Strong against Bailout Bill

Roll Call

As the House kicked off three hours of debate on the $700 billion bailout package Monday morning, conservative Republicans wasted no time expressing their opposition to the massive government support of the financial sector.

Before the debate began, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) requested that the House adjourn without taking up the bailout package "so we don’t do this terrible thing to America."

Gohmert temporarily delayed debate by seeking a 15-minute vote to establish a quorum on the floor.

Rep. Jeb Hensarling (Texas), chairman of the conservative Republican Study Committee, said he "cannot in good conscience" vote for the package because it "socializes losses," and he called for spending more time reviewing other proposals.

"I believe that this plan is fraught with unintended consequences, would force generations of taxpayers to pick up the tab for Wall Street losses, and could permanently and fundamentally change the role of government in the American free enterprise system," Hensarling said.

The RSC chairman said Congress rushed through the issue and "did not adequately discuss or investigate potential alternatives that would have constituted a work out and not a bail out."

On the other end of the spectrum, some progressive Democrats are opposed to the bill over its lack of foreclosure provisions and for handing over so much money to the Bush administration.

"Why are we willing to even make available $700 billion to this administration?" asked Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-Calif.)
President Bush and Secretary Paulson have been wrong from the start on just about everything,” said Woolsey. "If you think they'll be responsible with this money, think again. I, for one, will be in eminent opposition of this bailout."

Financial Services Chairman Barney Frank (D-Mass.) warned members that not passing the bill could have dire consequences.

"If we defeat this bill today, it will be a very bad for the financial sector in the American economy and the people who will feel the pain are not the top bankers and the top corporate executives, but average Americans," Frank said. "Pain averted is not a basis on which you get a lot of gratitude, but that is what is coming if we do not do something today."

Wild Thing's comment........

"and could permanently and fundamentally change the role of government in the American free enterprise system," Hensarling said."

Please if you can call your Rep. and tell them NO and to stop this insanity. This Bill will keep us permanently enslaved to the government. It is socialism.

C-Spam LIVE Stream video

I have both C-Span on and Rush and Rush said it was designed to fail and Dems are demanding that the GOPers go along. So far most speaking are saying NO to this ( on C-Span) the ones saying yes are kissing up to Barney Frank this makes me physically ill watching anyone kiss up to Frank. But I want to see what and if there are any good guys saying NO way.

Oh my God, what happened to John Boehner, he is giving a speech on why they have to vote YES, has he lost his mind. Has he been threatened with something. I don't get this at all.

Well he just got kicked out of MY FOXHOLE that's for damn sure.


Pelosi needs a certain amount of GOP votes for this to pass. She needs 100 votes.

195 FOR - 220 AGAINST!

TIMES UP, why is it still tallying?!?!


206Yea...........227 Nay.........To Non votes 2

If I understand this right, It's over, it is defeated. It looks like the Bailout bill has FAILED!

Now the dems are as Rush just said " brow beating 11 of them to change their vote."

FOX Business said they will hold the vote open a few hours to twist arms and change votes.

Wall St is having a hissy fit.

We struck back at Socialism and live for another week or so until the “refined” bill comes back to the House.

John McCain: "Sarah Palin's the best, forget the critics"


Victoria Sahadi, 7, dressed up as the Alaska governor/Republican vice presidential nominee.

John McCain: Sarah Palin's the best, forget the critics

NY Daily News
John McCain had a message Sunday for critics of his veep pick Sarah Palin: buzz off.

Palin has been blasted for appearing to be in over her head following a choppy, and at moments unintelligible, recent interview with CBS' Katie Couric. Some conservative Republicans have demanded she be yanked from the ticket.

McCain is having none of it.

"They can complain. I'll rely on the American people. They have responded in a way that is positive. She's brought a kind of excitement that makes you think that campaigns can be an exciting trip," McCain told ABC's "This Week."
"I'm so excited by the reaction that she has gotten across the country. She knows how to communicate directly with people. ... They respond," McCain added.

But polls show Palin's popularity waning as she has struggled to answer questions about foreign policy in the few interviews she has granted to journalists.

With even Republicans wincing over Palin's difficulty explaining the importance of Alaska's proximity to Russia in the Couric interview, McCain's camp was quick to note the many mistakes of the Democratic ticket's No. 2, Joe Biden.

Wild Thing's comment.............

I saw the interviewi with McCain Sunday morning on This Week, and McCain laughed when it was suggested Palin step down. He genuinely thinks the world of her.

I Say Unleash Both Of Them!

How McCain Wins


New York Times

(snipet from the article)

With respect to his campaign, McCain needs to liberate his running mate from the former Bush aides brought in to handle her — aides who seem to have succeeded in importing to the Palin campaign the trademark defensive crouch of the Bush White House. McCain picked Sarah Palin in part because she’s a talented politician and communicator. He needs to free her to use her political talents and to communicate in her own voice.
I’m told McCain recently expressed unhappiness with his staff’s handling of Palin. On Sunday he dispatched his top aides Steve Schmidt and Rick Davis to join Palin in Philadelphia. They’re supposed to liberate Palin to go on the offensive as a combative conservative in the vice-presidential debate on Thursday.
That debate is important. McCain took a risk in choosing Palin. If she does poorly, it will reflect badly on his judgment. If she does well, it will be a shot in the arm for his campaign.
In the debate, Palin has to dispatch quickly any queries about herself, and confidently assert that of course she’s qualified to be vice president. She should spend her time making the case for McCain and, more important, the case against Obama. As one shrewd McCain supporter told me, “Every minute she spends not telling the American people something that makes them less well disposed to Obama is a minute wasted.”

Wild Thing's comment.........

I agree with this above, this makes me very happy, let Sarah be Sarah! She’s a kick butt conservative. Don’t try to rein her in. Her conservatism and patriotism will shine through. When she started she was doing great, if they have been trying to reign her in like they want McCain to do I am agsint that for either of them.

McCain too is at his best when he lets his passionate side shine through.His debate at Saddleback was his best and that night he did not hold back. I liked this last debate but he could have said more, hit harder and maybe he was holding back too.

The best ads McCain ran that we all loved where the hard hitting kind too.

In my opinion this is not the normal election, we are up against a man that is the most evil from the left running for President and we need to have the take no prisoner attitude with the left always.

Bush wasn’t a Conservative and we all knew that, but he did, and tried to do, some good things. He just refused to fight and/or articulate his positions to the American people. Palin will fight, turn her loose and let her do what comes naturally.

SARAH PALIN DID JUST FINE ...then "they" thought "they'd" HELP her....DON'T FIX WHAT ISN'T BROKEN PEOPLE!
LET HER BE HERSELF!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bailout from The Good (House Republicans) and The Bad and The Ugly Democrats

Nancy Pelosi and Bailout Plan

Republicans React to Bailout Plan

Elmer Fudd Barney Frank Reacts to Proposed Bail Out Bill

Statement by the President on Bipartisan Agreement on Economic Rescue Legislation

The White House

"Today, a bipartisan group of Members of Congress, working with my Administration, reached agreement on economic rescue legislation that is urgently needed to address a crisis in our financial system that threatens the entire U.S. economy.
I appreciate the leadership shown by Members on both sides of the aisle, who came together to write a very good bill. This bill provides the necessary tools and funding to help protect our economy against a system-wide breakdown. The bill will help allow access to credit so American families can meet their daily needs and American businesses can make purchases, ship goods, and meet their payrolls. And this plan sends a strong signal to markets around the world that the United States is serious about restoring confidence and stability to our financial system. Without this rescue plan, the costs to the American economy could be disastrous.
Many Members of Congress contributed important ideas to improve the legislation my Administration proposed. I appreciate the negotiators considering those ideas and incorporating them in this agreement.
Members of Congress will vote on this legislation soon. This is a difficult vote, but with the improvements made to the bill, I am confident Congress will do what is best for our economy by approving this legislation promptly."

Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) referred to the bill as a “crap sandwich” according to two sources in the room.

Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) outlined the troubling unconstitutional aspects of the financial rescue plan.

"‘There seems to be no real appreciation of the Constitutional Boundaries’

Wild Thing's comment............

Well this is horrible!!!!!!!! Not a happy camper here at all.

In my title I said, Good House Republicans because I am grateful to those I saw trying to fight back and keep this from being as bad as it was at the beginning. I am big on giving kudos, and yes it is not all I wished for in anyway. But still I am glad we had some that did speak up, how sad is that there were so few though.

This whole mess is because of Democrats, it started with Carter then Clinton and well you all know the rest. I truly believe if Republicans were in the majority this bill would not be what it is, no way. I truly can't stand being at the mercy in numbers of Reid and Pelosi when it comes to voting in our government on things.

This is why it is so important to vote and keep Republicans in the majority even if all they resemble are warm bodies imo. haha Not sure how else to put that.

The guilty, the criminals being put in charge of this bill and then bragging about it and acting like they are saving our country makes me sick.

During an interview on Fox News Channel, Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) outlined the troubling unconstitutional aspects of the financial rescue plan. Heritage’s legal scholars yesterday outlined the constitutional infirmities that remain.
Video at website

Anyway about the Bailout, well first I thought ACORN is out as it was listed before.......BUT if you look at section 106, in the pdf file below, ACORN got through but in a sly way, and now the Treasury can give that 65% of the 20% of the money from the sales of the troubled assets to ACORN as loans to people who can't make their payments.

Draft of the Bailout

Source for information below:

The QandO Blog Free Markets, Free People


. DEPOSITS.Not less than 20 percent of any profit realized on the sale of each troubled asset purchased under this Act shall be deposited as provided in paragraph (2).
2. USE OF DEPOSITS.Of the amount referred to in paragraph (1)
1. 65 percent shall be deposited into the Housing Trust Fund established under section 1338 of the Federal Housing Enterprises Regulatory Reform Act of 1992 (12 U.S.C. 4568); and
2. 35 percent shall be deposited into the Capital Magnet Fund established under section 1339 of that Act (12 U.S.C. 4569).

REMAINDER DEPOSITED IN THE TREASURY.All amounts remaining after payments under paragraph (1) shall be paid into the General Fund of the Treasury for reduction of the public debt.

20% right off the top is siphoned off and 65% of that goes to the Housing Trust Fund. Where does ACORN come in?

The Heritage Foundation picks it up from there:

"Just like any organized crime group, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) has a long and established history of using fraud, deceit and intimidation to achieve its goals. ACORN uses intimidation to shake down corporations for operating funds, deceives its own employees into supporting causes they don’t believe in, and cheats the entire country by submitting fraudulent voter registrations.
ACORN is also adept at co-opting government power to fund and legitimize a criminal enterprise. It has been winning federal money since the Carter administration and routinely receives millions of dollars in federal grants from the Department of Housing and Urban Development. In the 1990s, it began shaking down local business communities and has established local “Housing Trust Funds” in more than 300 states, counties, cities and towns. The funds funnel money through groups like ACORN to produce new homes and refurbish existing ones. The key to these trust funds is securing a dedicated source of public funds.
The Holy Grail for ACORN has been the establishment of a National Housing Trust Fund. During the brief economic downturn in 2001, ACORN pushed the fund as an economic stimulus. From 2003 through 2006 it pushed the fund as a solution to housing prices that were too high. Now liberals in Congress have included the National Housing Trust Fund in the latest housing bailout bill, arguing it’s needed because housing prices are too low."

McCotter Rejects 700-pound Billion Dollar Bag of Dung

Let me put this in the simplistic terms for people like me to understand. Now the Wall-Street crony capitalist have put a 700-pound billion dollar bag of dung on taxpayers doorsteps, rung the bell, and expect you to thank them when you answer it. I think the American people will think otherwise.

Wild Thing's comment..........

That’s an incredible delivery. I expect most R’s in Congress will vote against this bailout bill, but since the Dems are in the majority control - we’re gonna have to eat it.

Just saw a Ohio Dem Rep on cspan - Mary Something. She was pissed. Said negotiations were going on behind locked doors and the very people negotiating the bailout are the ones responsible for the mess. She says no deal. It appears dems are not unanimous on this one.

I couldnt believe these words came out of a dem mouth.

So typical of DC to say “it’s over we win” when they know it isn’t. They only do this crap in hopes that people will stop calling and writing their congressmen.

Details Have To Be Worked Out But Deal Reached On Financial Markets Bailout Minus ACORN

(AP Photo/Lauren Victoria Burke)


WASHINGTON (AP) - Congressional leaders and the Bush administration reached a tentative deal early Sunday on a landmark bailout of imperiled financial markets whose collapse could plunge the nation into a deep recession.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the $700 billion accord just after midnight but said it still has to be put on paper.

"We've still got more to do to finalize it, but I think we're there," said Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, who also participated in the negotiations in the Capitol.

"We worked out everything," said Sen. Judd Gregg, R-N.H., the chief Senate Republican in the talks.

Congressional leaders hope to have the House vote on the measure Monday. A Senate vote would come later.

The plan calls for the Treasury Department to buy deeply distressed mortgage-backed securities and other bad debts held by banks and other investors. The money should help troubled lenders make new loans and keep credit lines open. The government would later try to sell the discounted loan packages at the best possible price.

At the insistence of House Republicans, some of the program's $700 billion would be devoted to a program that would encourage holders of distressed mortgage-backed securities to keep them and buy government insurance to cover defaults.

The legislation would place "reasonable" limits on severance packages for executives of companies that benefit from the rescue plan, said a senior administration official who was authorized to speak only on background. It would affect fired executives of financial firms, and executives of firms that go bankrupt. Some of the provisions would be retroactive and some prospective, the official said.

The proposed legislation also calls for the financial sector to help make up the difference if the government does not recoup its investment in five years, the official said, but details were unclear.

Also, the government would receive stock warrants in return for the bailout relief, giving taxpayers a chance to share in financial companies' future profits.

To help struggling homeowners, the plan would require the government to try renegotiating the bad mortgages it acquires with the aim of lowering borrowers' monthly payments so they can keep their homes.

The measure's main elements were proposed a week ago by the Bush administration, with Paulson heading efforts to push it through the Democratic-controlled Congress. Democrats insisted on greater congressional oversight, more taxpayer protections, help for homeowners facing possible foreclosure, and restrictions on executives' compensation.

To some degree, all those items were added.

At the insistence of House Republicans, who threatened to sidetrack negotiations at midweek, the insurance provision was added as an alternative to having the government buy distressed securities. House Republicans say it will require less taxpayer spending for the bailout.

But the Treasury Department has said the insurance provision would not pump enough money into the financial sector to make credit sufficiently available. The department would decide how to structure the insurance provisions, said Sen. Kent Conrad, D-N.D., one of the negotiators.

Money for the rescue plan would be phased in, he said. The first $350 billion would be available as soon as the president requested it. Congress could try to block later amounts if it believed the program was not working. The president could veto such a move, however, requiring extra large margins in the House and Senate to override.

Despite the changes made during an intense week of negotiations, the heart of the program remains Bush's original idea: To have the government spend billions of dollars to buy mortgage-backed securities whose value has plummeted as hundreds of thousands of Americans have defaulted on their home loans.

Senate Majority leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said Saturday that the goal was to come up with a final agreement before the Asian markets open Sunday night. "Everybody is waiting for this thing to tip a little bit too far," he said, so "we may not have another day."

Hours later, when he and others told reporters of the plan in a post-midnight news conference, Reid referred to the sometimes testy nature of the negotiations.

"We've had a lot of pleasant words," he said, "and some that haven't always been pleasant."

"We're very pleased with the progress made tonight," said White House spokesman Tony Fratto. "We appreciate the bipartisan effort to deal with this urgent issue."

It was not immediately clear how many House Republicans might vote for the measure. With the election five weeks away, Democrats have said they would not push a plan that appeared sharply partisan in nature.


The Bush adminstration in 4/2001 raised red flags, the 2002 budget requests decalres Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac "Potential problem.. and can cause strong repercussions in the financial markets"

In 2003 the White House upgraded the warning to a systemic risk that could spread beyond the housing sector.

John Snow Treasury Secretary called for Regulations & Supervision of GSE's.

Barney Frank (D-MA) denied there was any problem " Fannie Mac & Freddie Mare are not in Crisis"
Encouraging the government to do more to get low income families into homes, Ultimately blocking the regulation.

Allan Greenspan , 2/17/2005 spoke about the dangers of Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac "enabling these institutions to
increase in size -and they will once the crisis in their judgement passes-we are placing the total financial system of
the future at a substantial risk

Charles Schumer (D-NY) 4/6/2005 ..."I think Fannie & Freddie have done an incredibly good job, and are an intristic part of making america the best housed people in the world....if you look over the last 20 or whatever yrs. Theyve done a very, very good job.

McCain (R-AZ) 5/25/2006 For years I have been concerned about the regulatory structure that governs Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac... and there sheer magnitude of these companies and the role they play in the housing market...the GSE's need to be reformed without delay."

That bill ( FEDERAL HOUSING ENTERPRISE REGULATORY REFORM ACT) made it out of the senate banking committee with a party line vote all the democrats voted against it.

Senator Obama did not weigh in on the bill !!!! The Muslim communist, marxist, creep!


Frank's fingerprints are all over the financial fiasco

Boston Globe ..for complete article

'THE PRIVATE SECTOR got us into this mess. The government has to get us out of it."

That's Barney Frank's story, and he's sticking to it. As the Massachusetts Democrat has explained it in recent days, the current financial crisis is the spawn of the free market run amok, with the political class guilty only of failing to rein the capitalists in. The Wall Street meltdown was caused by "bad decisions that were made by people in the private sector," Frank said; the country is in dire straits today "thanks to a conservative philosophy that says the market knows best." And that philosophy goes "back to Ronald Reagan, when at his inauguration he said, 'Government is not the answer to our problems; government is the problem.' "

In fact, that isn't what Reagan said. His actual words were: "In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem." Were he president today, he would be saying much the same thing.

Because while the mortgage crisis convulsing Wall Street has its share of private-sector culprits they weren't the ones who "got us into this mess." Barney Frank's talking points notwithstanding, mortgage lenders didn't wake up one fine day deciding to junk long-held standards of creditworthiness in order to make ill-advised loans to unqualified borrowers. It would be closer to the truth to say they woke up to find the government twisting their arms and demanding that they do so - or else.

The roots of this crisis go back to the Carter administration. That was when government officials, egged on by left-wing activists, began accusing mortgage lenders of racism and "redlining" because urban blacks were being denied mortgages at a higher rate than suburban whites.

But his fingerprints are all over this fiasco. Time and time again, Frank insisted that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were in good shape. Five years ago, for example, when the Bush administration proposed much tighter regulation of the two companies, Frank was adamant that "these two entities, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, are not facing any kind of financial crisis." When the White House warned of "systemic risk for our financial system" unless the mortgage giants were curbed, Frank complained that the administration was more concerned about financial safety than about housing.

Now that the bubble has burst and the "systemic risk" is apparent to all, Frank blithely declares: "The private sector got us into this mess." Well, give the congressman points for gall. Wall Street and private lenders have plenty to answer for, but it was Washington and the political class that derailed this train. If Frank is looking for a culprit to blame, he'll find one suspect in the nearest mirror.

Gov. Blunt Statement on Obama Campaign’s Abusive Use of Missouri Law Enforcement

Matt Blunt was elected as Missouri's 54th Governor

Gov. Blunt Statement on Obama Campaign’s Abusive Use of Missouri Law Enforcement

Gov. Mo.Gov.


Gov. Matt Blunt today issued the following statement on news reports that have exposed plans by U.S. Senator Barack Obama to use Missouri law enforcement to threaten and intimidate his critics.

“St. Louis County Circuit Attorney Bob McCulloch, St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce, Jefferson County Sheriff Glenn Boyer, and Obama and the leader of his Missouri campaign Senator Claire McCaskill have attached the stench of police state tactics to the Obama-Biden campaign.

“What Senator Obama and his helpers are doing is scandalous beyond words, the party that claims to be the party of Thomas Jefferson is abusing the justice system and offices of public trust to silence political criticism with threats of prosecution and criminal punishment.
“This abuse of the law for intimidation insults the most sacred principles and ideals of Jefferson. I can think of nothing more offensive to Jefferson’s thinking than using the power of the state to deprive Americans of their civil rights. The only conceivable purpose of Messrs. McCulloch, Obama and the others is to frighten people away from expressing themselves, to chill free and open debate, to suppress support and donations to conservative organizations targeted by this anti-civil rights, to strangle criticism of Mr. Obama, to suppress ads about his support of higher taxes, and to choke out criticism on television, radio, the Internet, blogs, e-mail and daily conversation about the election.
“Barack Obama needs to grow up. Leftist blogs and others in the press constantly say false things about me and my family. Usually, we ignore false and scurrilous accusations because the purveyors have no credibility. When necessary, we refute them. Enlisting Missouri law enforcement to intimidate people and kill free debate is reminiscent of the Sedition Acts - not a free society.”

Wild Thing's comment.............

Thank you Governor Blunt! What a great statement, and I wish it would make the national news!

So those who would prosecute are themselves breaking the law and violating their oaths of office.

If Obama wins this election he would bring about atrocities that we have never imagined happening in our Country.

Also I went HERE and clilcked on the E-mail: Constituent Services and sent a note to thank him.

A little something about Gov. Blunt:

Governor Matt Blunt was born on November 20, 1970 in Strafford, Missouri. In 1993, he graduated from the United States Naval Academy with a Bachelor of Science in History. He went on to serve as an Engineering Officer aboard the USS JACK WILLIAMS (FFG-24) and as the Navigator and Administrative Officer on the USS PETERSON (DD-969). Lieutenant Commander Blunt was mobilized to Commander Naval Activities in the United Kingdom in October of 2001 in response to the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States. Gov. Blunt served six months in Operation Enduring Freedom and is the only statewide official in Missouri history called to active military duty in wartime. While in the Navy, he received four Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals as well as numerous other awards.

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

Phony Obama Attacks McCain in Ad Over Not Saying " Middle Class" Yet Obama Ignores Hut Dweller Brother!

I wonder how George Hussein Onyango Obama' s half brother of Barack Hussein Obama feels about Obama being a phony with his pretending to care about the middle class.

George Hussein Onyango Obama is living in a hut in the "tough" town of Huruma on the outskirts of Nairobi.


Wild Thing's comment............

Obama's campaign quickly produced an advertisement criticizing McCain for never uttering the term "middle class" in the debate. Campaign manager David Plouffe held a conference call with reporters where he called McCain's efforts to paint Obama as inexperienced on foreign affairs "sophomoric."

When I was growing up my Father would discuss politics a lot and the differences in the political parties.

One of the many differences was how those on the left insist on labeling people.
Young vs. Old
Rich vs. Middle Class
Rich vs. Poor
Healthy vs. Sick
Black vs. White


Labels are important to the left, it separates people it divides a population into little tidy boxes for the left to use as a tool in their agenda. It is NEVER we are all Americans in the left thinking. They are the ones with the hyphen not those of us on the right.

I could care less if McCain mentioned the middle class in the debate. I could care less if Obama did. What the hell does that have to do with Foreign policy and what the debate was supposed to be about.

Obama's mentality of the workers of the world unite BS makes me sick! I have met enough of those kind of people in my life to know when I see them coming I know I am going to hear the " I hate the rich" mantra from them as they point their index finger as close to your nose as possible, and then shake it at you to try and intimidate you as best they can.

I have seen Nicholas stop these @#$%&#*@ in their tracks by simply saying one thing to them they cannot refute........
" Well I never worked for a poor person! ".

I swear they NEVER can answer back with that one. They can't because they know there is no comeback.

Obama is like many that have financially done well but are communists like those we hear from in Hollyweird and non Hollywood people that have been blessed to do well in life but hate the rich. Go figure that one out. hahaha Like hating the hand that feeds them or something. It is the way of thinking that comes along with being a good communist.

If Obama cared so much about the poor or even the middle class having to be mentioned then he certainly does not show it. His campaign put that Girl Scouts leader through the ropes that I posted about as she was just trying to get a few free things from his campaign for the girls. McCain 's camp gave freely. And Obama has a lot more money in his campaign then McCain does.

Obama could care less about his half brother living in a hut, or his black grandmother as well. I mean wouldn't you think a man that had become the Democrat candidate for President would have proudly had his WHOLE freaking family in Denver. Blacks and whites and PAID their way there and introduce them or something to the crowd??????

After the debate McCain headed back to Washington to work on the economy bailout thing. What did Obama do?????? He headed out to do another campaign rally.

Obama's Marxist's Indoctrination Camps

“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set,” said Obama on July 2. “We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”-Barrack Hussein Obama

This camp has no campfire sing-alongs, no marshmallow roasts, no knotty-walled log cabins to sleep in. Instead, campers spend their days inside a drab office building, with walls adorned with maps.

Barack Obama is inspiring a new generation of people to come in, and a lot of people have not been involved in the political process before," says Hans Riemer, national youth vote director for the Obama campaign.

"We are training them, teaching them how to be effective, showing them what their role is in our strategy to win the election ... We're taking people from raw enthusiasm to capable organizers."
"The most important thing is that they understand they are an important part of our strategy to win the election. This is not for show, this is not to feel good; this is to get trained and help us to win this election."

Obama Youth

The Obama Supporters have stooped to a new low!

This video is a reminder how Adolf Hitler exploited the young people of Germany as members of The Hitler Youth!

No Presidential Candidate in our history has caused this effect on families to enlist their children to this kind of exploitation!

The first part of the video are things from the past in history, but keep watching if you have time and about half way through it shows the children of today and it absolutely turned my stomach to see this happening.

Susan shares her story with fellow campers at the National Camp Obama in Burbank, California.

These camps are all across our country in various States. MA, N.Y.Nevada, etc. I think in every State.

The story telling exercises are the foundation of the model being used at Camp Obama. But they are not the end goal of the training. After a day of story telling, then came the nuts and bolts: training and exercises on how to function as an effective team, skills training for volunteer recruitment and voter contact and review and explanations of field plans for Georgia, South Carolina and the rest of the South.

The teams, which were organized by Congressional districts, were guided through a process of setting goals and making a plan to achieve them. While still at the training, thirteen different teams scheduled thirteen different volunteer recruitment meetings back in the districts--and picked up their cell phones to get 284 commitments to attend from friends and neighbors. Getting those immediate results fired everyone up and the closing ceremony, in which every participant received a certificate, was incredibly high-energy and emotional.

This handful of Camp Obama teams are supposed to be just the beginning of the Obama organization in their Congressional districts. The goal they are carrying back with them is to establish parallel teams of five to eight people to be responsible for cities and neighborhoods all the way down to the precinct level.

If Obama wins the election much of this will be continued after he is in the White House.


Wild Thing's comment...........

I have posted about the Obama camps before but that was during the primaries and I thought he would have stopped them once he became the Democrat candidate for President. But he continues then and like I found out will continue something like this after he is in the White House if he wins the election.

Obama is going to cause a civil war in this country. This is the indoctrination into the Saul Alinksy method, channeled by Obama. It is, indeed, a fearful time for America.You know, it really is not hyperbole to compare this to Hitler Youth. Seriously though, this man is truly terrifying. The more people like us try to point out Obama’s fascist tendencies and the almost religious devotion that his followers have, the more the “moderate” liberals and the MSM deride us. To their peril.

There is so little opposition to the things Obama says or does; at best, they wish he used even more ruthless fascist tactics. Between now and November 4, it is our duty to let all those we know that this is not merely another election, that Obama is not just a tax-and-spend liberal, but that—like Hitler—he is attempting to use democracy to destroy it.

We need more conservative/republican teachers in our schools and universities , these mush brains have been taught by dedicated liberals so far to the left that communism is their god. Obama IS the ONE THEY have been waiting for just as his other followers have been as well. I include in this the majority of the media and the politicians on the left also. The Code Pink people that are known communists rejoice for the ONE to lead them into the land of socialism. communism and Marxism.

Here are a few more glaring facts:

1. Obama thugs attempting to get a Chicago Talk radio program shut down because the host interviewed an author critical of Obama.

2. The Democrats in Congress speaking about a reintroduction of the Fairness Doctrine.

3. The signs that have been banned on public ground at an Obama rally in Virginia today.

4. What Obama is attempting in St. Louis, MO (use of law enforcement to shut down free speech that the Obama camp calls lies). This has the Governor publishing statements and looking into Civil Right’s violations.

5. Obama himself telling his throngs in Nevada to get in people’s faces, argue with them, harass them etc...

6. Obama’s lawyers threatening the NRA with legal action for an ad they have running about Obama’s views on the 2nd Amendment.

And I’ve no doubt the list goes on; not to mention the massive voter fraud that is happening in one of Obama’s pet organizations, ACORN. A corrupt vile blight on the American public that the Democrat majority in Congress wish to fund in their socialist bailout of Wall Street.

Did you catch Jim Lehrer’s slip during the debate Friday night when he said, “One of these men will be the next man to RULE the country?”

Turbulent times bring great men to the fore.

Churchill said, “We will never surrender!” He reminded the world that Nazism was so horrible that even if the world succumbed to its initial might, the very human spirit would one day rise up against it and defeat it.

Actor Paul Newman Dies at 83

Newman, who had been battling cancer, passed away on Friday, at his home, Newman's Own Foundation said in a statement from Westport, Connecticut.

Newman was half of one of the most successful showbiz marriages -- to Joanne Woodward, whom he married in 1958. He observed that just because he was a sex symbol there was no reason to commit adultery.

"Why would I go out for a hamburger when [I] have steak at home?" he asked.

Newman's daughters said described him as a devoted husband, a loving father, an adoring grandfather and a dedicated philanthropist.

"Our father was a rare symbol of selfless humility, the last to acknowledge what he was doing was special," they said in a statement. "Intensely private, he quietly succeeded beyond measure in impacting the lives of so many with his generosity.

"Always and to the end, Dad was incredibly grateful for his good fortune. In his own words: 'It's been a privilege to be here.'"

Paul Leonard Newman was born on January 26, 1925, in Shaker Heights, Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland. His father owned a successful sporting goods store, but young Paul was taken with his mother's and uncle's interest in the arts and started acting while still in grade school.

"I wasn't running toward the theater but running away from the sporting goods store," he said later.

In recent years, Newman talked about doing another film with his friend Redford, but the two couldn't settle on a script. In 2007, Newman said he was retiring from acting, saying he'd lost confidence in his abilities. Still, he marveled at his own resilience.

"You can't be as old as I am without waking up with a surprised look on your face every morning: 'Holy Christ, whaddya know - I'm still around!' It's absolutely amazing that I survived all the booze and smoking and the cars and the career."

The Verdict - ( 1981)

Hud - An Unprincipled Man

From the movie The Hustler (1961) this scene is the final game

Paul Newman enlisted in the U.S. Navy on Jan 22, 1943, having attended college at Ohio U., in Athens. Sent to the Navy's V-12 program to become a pilot, they found he was color blind. So he was made into a radioman , where he qualified as a radioman/gunner in the TBM "Avenger" torpedo bomber, and was sent to the Pacific. While there, his pilot took ill, and Newman was grounded while his squadron suffered heavy losses during a kamikaze attack on his carrier. Operating off the Hollandia, Newman was about 500 miles from the explosion at Hiroshima, then was discharged the following January. He received the American Area Campaign Medal, the World War II Victory Medal, and the Good Conduct Medal. He attended acting school at Kenyon College on the G.I. Bill.

Wild Thing's comment............

He may well be a diehard liberal but he could sure act and drive a race car. He was one of the great in regards to acting and picked well on is movie choices to act in and be a part of .

His politics were not mine, but he did things well, including living far from Hollywood, staying married to the same woman for 50 years, raising a family that’s by show biz standards pretty normal, creating a real business (then giving profits to charities).

McCain Stars At First Presidential Debate in Oxford, Mississippi

These are some of McCain's responses I really liked.

McCain-......" I’m not going to set the White House visitors schedule before I’m president of the United States. I don’t even have a seal yet."
ROTFLMAO!! OH my gosh that should be on a t-shirt or a sticker!!!!!!!!! Holy cow, he’s smacking him down.

"There are some advantages to experience and knowlege."

“I don’t need on the job training.” LOL

“I looked into Putin’s eyes and I saw three letters; a K, a G, and a B”.

Obama's one liners:

“I’ve traveled and met with veterans.” - OBAMA ( hey Obama there is one standing right next to you!)

More notes:

OH my gosh! What a total jerk Obama is. First Obama butts in then McCain tries to say his piece and Obama tells Jim, lets move on! While McCain is talking!! Obama just said “Let’s Move on...” Who the hell is the moderator? Apparently freaking Obama. LMAO, Obama is debating and moderating, too.

LOL ....Now McCain isn’t letting Obama interrupt him. Too funny.

Arrogance, elitism..Obama, he’s got the total package.

Obama just used McCain own words “walk the walk, talk the talk” what a loser!

Not ONCE did 0bama mention Israel. Obama has not mentioned supporting Israel, defending Israel, sharing a common interest and history. NOT ONCE. McCain gave him openings to mention at least 3 times, but Obama’s OMISSION of Israel in his speech and silence on any support for Israel by the US demonstrates once again how oh he will side with his PLO buddies.

I’m loving the way McCain is rattling off the names of places, people, and important strategical points in the Russia-Georgia-Ukraine situation. He’s on top of it, and all Obambi can say is “we have to rebuild the Georgian economy.”

I just realized he’s only said “my friend” once, if I’ve counted correctly. McCain’s staff must be working on getting him to limit his use of the phrase.

McCain started out slowly but is heading into the home stretch appearing more seasoned and more experienced than Obama which of course he is.

-- Wild Thing

From the debate last night, here are THREE critical foreign policy & security issues on which I believe Obama has made himself (and potentially our nation) extremely vulnerable. --- Wild Thing

(1) MISSILE DEFENSE: Obama lied (or flip-flopped without admitting it) on his position re missile defense. Tonight he claimed he supports it, when he is on video giving a left-wing rant calling for termination of funding for "unproven" missile defense:

Obama will Gut the Military

(2) RUSSIA-GEORGIA CONFLICT: Mis-Represents his own position on Russia-Georgia as it "evolved".... he did NOT take the position on Russia-Georgia on the FIRST day of the conflict that he eventually took by day 3.

3) PRESIDENTIAL SUMMIT WITH IRANIAN LEADERS, NO PRE-CONDITIONS: Obama mis-represents Henry Kissinger's position on Iran in order to pretend that Kissing agrees with the Obamanation. If a Republican candidate in a Presidential debate had just grossly mis-represented the position of the most famous living diplomat on an issue of such vital importance, in order to claim non-existent support for his own position (which position itself is in the midst of major flip-flops), the media would flay that candidate alive and the election is over. It is a measure of the depth and breadth of media bias that this will not even be a blip on the screen, or if they do feel any need to address it they will do so as apologists for the Obamanation.

Kissinger is TICKED and discussed this immediately after the debate!

The Weekly Standard Exclusive: Kissinger Unhappy About Obama


Henry Kissinger believes Barack Obama misstated his views on diplomacy with US adversaries and is not happy about being mischaracterized. He says: "Senator McCain is right. I would not recommend the next President of the United States engage in talks with Iran at the Presidential level. My views on this issue are entirely compatible with the views of my friend Senator John McCain. We do not agree on everything, but we do agree that any negotiations with Iran must be geared to reality."

(3a) PRESIDENTIAL SUMMIT MEETINGS: re: follow-up to (3) above, not only is Obama mis-representing Kissinger's position, but he is LYING (or flip-flopping without ackknowledgement) about his own pledge to hold direct meetings with leaders of Iran, Syria, Venezuela, etc..... (now says he does expect "preparations" etc. - trying to backpeddle on what he actually did say in Democrat debate in July 2007).

Obambi Said YES that HE as President would meet with "leaders of Syria, Iran, Venezuela...." during his first year in office ... no preconditions


Here's the beginning of the blowout if only the MSM could be forced to report it - Obama is LYING about his previous position on meeting with leaders of Iran, etc.:

"Asked if the candidates would be willing to meet “with leaders of Syria, Iran, Venezuela" during their first year in office, Obama immediately said yes and added, “the notion that somehow not talking to countries is punishment to them — which has been the guiding diplomatic principle of this administration — is ridiculous.” These are 3 different vitally important foreign policy issues on which Obambi stumbled, crumbled, fumbled, and/or LIED about his past positions/stands.

This election would be OVER if we actually had a professional, unbiased, competent media.

More on original context for Obama's position on Presidential direct negotiations with the world's worst regimes:

Obama on Meeting With leaders of Iran, Syria, Venezuela, etc.


"The question was a simple one but it elicited one of the few differences between Sens. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama so far in the race for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination:

"Would you be willing to meet separately during the first year of your administration, with leaders of Syria, Iran, Venezuela and others to bridge the gap between our countries?"

"Obama said he would be willing to have such meetings."

"The notion that somehow not talking to countries is punishment to them — which has been the guiding diplomatic principle of this administration — is ridiculous," explained Obama."

Obama Truth Squad ~ Obama Prosecutors will "prosecute you for "lies" about Obama"

Missouri pro-Obama prosecutors will prosecute you for "lies" about Obama

Obama campaign cracks down on misleading TV ads

The Barack Obama campaign is asking Missouri law enforcement to target anyone who lies or runs a misleading TV ad during the presidential campaign.


This video should shake you to your core. Obama supporters in Missouri are blatantly announcing that law enforcement will be used to prosecute you if you are part of campaign ads that tell, in their opinion, "lies" about Barack Obama.

And we thought the Clinton machine was bad? This is frightening. When will the lies be prosecuted about Palin, McCain, and Limbaugh? The answer is, they won't.

Is the Obama campaign sending the law after critics?

National Examiner

Have I gone insane, or is KMOV in St. Louis, Missouri, actually reporting that "Senator Barack Obama's presidential campaign is asking Missouri law enforcement to target anyone who lies or runs a misleading television ad during the presidential campaign"?

The report goes on to say that "prosecutors and sheriffs from across Missouri are joining something called the Barack Obama truth squad."

Look, politicians are all about lies. It may be annoying (I find it entertaining), but that's for their opponents and good-government groups to counter -- not law enforcement. That's especially true since whether or not criticism is "misleading" is open to debate. What's being said may be simply a different interpretation, a bit of spin -- or a better version of the truth than candidates and their friends like.

Even if the officeholders joining the "truth squad" are nominally stepping out of their official roles in order to put on their (political) party hats and play politics, it's inappropriate. They wield too much power to use it to wag their fingers at people who say un-nice things about political hopefuls. Prosecutors and sheriffs are, after all, normally thought of as people with the clout to put their targets behind bars.

Somebody, please drop me a note to tell me that the station has it all wrong.

By the way, if the report is accurate, it fits all too well with the legal threats the Democratic candidate's campaign is leveling against TV stations that run NRA ads critical of Barack Obama.

It is not only in this one State of Missouri look at this....................

Obama-Biden Campaign Rolls Out Pennsylvania Truth Squad

Obama-Biden Campaign Rolls Out Pennsylvania Truth Squad
Collection of leaders from around the state will give the facts in the face of McCain’s lies

Today the Obama-Biden campaign is putting the McCain campaign on notice by rolling out the Pennsylvania Truth Squad — a group of 19 elected and community leaders from around the state who will be proactive in letting Pennsylvanians know the truth in the face of the distortions by the McCain campaign.

In Philadelphia, Gov. Ed Rendell, Mayor Michael Nutter and other members of the Truth Squad will kick off their efforts today with a press conference on Independence Mall.

In Harrisburg, AFL-CIO President Bill George, SEIU Executive Director Eileen Connolly and Secretary of the Department of Environmental Protection Kate McGinty will hold a press conference on the steps of the Capitol building.

The mission of the Truth Squad will be to respond quickly, forcefully, and aggressively when John McCain or his allies launch inaccurate claims about Barack Obama, or when they distort John McCain’s record or plans.

Judging by how much the McCain campaign has lied and distorted over the past 2 months, the Truth Squad is expecting to be deployed regularly over these final 6 weeks. The full list of “Pennsylvania Truth Squad” members will be released today.

Event Details:
WHAT: Press Conference
WHO: Gov. Rendell and Mayor Nutter
WHEN: 2 p.m., Monday, September 22, 2008
WHERE: Free Speech Zone
5th and Market, Philadelphia, PA 19106

WHAT: Press Conference
WHO: AFL-CIO President Bill George, SEIU President and Eileen Connolly, Exec. Director of SEIU
WHEN: 1 p.m., Monday, September 22, 2008
WHERE: In front of the Capitol, Harrisburg


Wild Thing's comment..........

Obama has big ears and an ugly bump on his face. next to his nose. LOL Take that you jerk! You can take that commie, Muslim Hussein Obama.

Back in July, the Obama campaign said it opposed the “Fairness Doctrine”.

They are trying to scare people into silence.

This is about intimidation and suppressing the truth about Obama. I don’t think they believe they can make it stick, but they are counting on people being intimidated into silence.

You can guarantee that they define a “lie about 0bama” as anything negative about him. I don’t see how they can even conceive of this, it is so illegal. If he wins our freedoms are gone. But right not he has NOT won the Presidency.

TV stations, radio stations and newspapers hear threats like this all the time. It will not intimidate them for one second. Some individuals might be afraid to write a letter to the editor, but the news will not stop.

Thomas Jefferson said........

"When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation."

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,

That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

Amazing 2004 Video of Hearing With Dems Attacking Regulations for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac

Democrats in their own words Covering up the Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac Scam that caused our Economic Crisis.

At a 2004 hearing see Democrat after Democrat covering up and attacking the regulations to protect Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (their Cash Cows) that are now destroying our economy because the Democrats let them cheat.

Wild Thing's comment............

Wouldn't it be great if they showed this on ALL the networks. In another world another time, it might make a difference but I think most of the people that vote for these democrats don't love America or care about what happens to our country.

Nina Easton on McCain's Good Debate

I think Obama ran out of answers or something............

Wild Thing's comment........

Nina is a democrat as far as I know so this was a pleasant surprise to hear her take on the debate.

I have a question, did anyone that saw the debate notice something in Obama's ear? I have talked to a few others that said they said it too. I have to wonder if he was being fed information while he was on stage. I was kidding that it was his teleprompter in his ear, but maybe one of his advisors for the topic for last night was giving him input.

300 Retired Generals And Admirals Endorse John McCain For President

300 Retired Generals And Admirals Endorse John McCain For President


U.S. Senator John McCain's presidential campaign today announced that 300 retired generals and admirals from around the country are endorsing John McCain for president. The retired generals and admirals announced their support with the following letter:

"We have had the honor and privilege of serving as career officers in the United States Armed Forces, and of serving shoulder to shoulder with so many of the fine young men and women who are the backbone of America's Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard. It is that experience that informs our judgment that John McCain is the presidential candidate best suited to serve as America's Commander-in Chief from the day of his inauguration.
"Our next president will confront national security challenges as significant as those faced by any administration in at least a generation. Success will require a leader with proven tenacity, judgment and courage. It will also require a leader with detailed knowledge of our military and other instruments of national power, and with years of experience dealing seriously with foreign leaders.
"John McCain's entire life has been devoted to the service of America. Throughout a long and distinguished career in the military and in Congress, he has repeatedly displayed the courage and integrity to place America's interests first -- regardless of personal cost. And he has demonstrated the experience and wisdom to lead America -- and, importantly, our allies -- in effectively dealing with complex and vitally important national security challenges around the world.
"We unequivocally endorse him to continue his service to the country as the next President of the United States."

Wild Thing's comment.......

I guess Obama has a list like this of community organizers, thugs, terroriosts like Ayers, etc.

I’d love to see a short TV with a number of these retired officers saying why they support John McCain.

As ech one speaks, tey could flash that person’s name and rank below their picture.

I think it’d be a powerful ad.

Republican Leadership Stakeout ON Economic Rescue Package

Posted by Wild Thing at 04:40 AM | Comments (4)

September 26, 2008

Are You Dizzy Yet? The Debate Is Back On.

The debate is on. McCain heading to Mississippi

Fox News

The statement from McCain’s campaign:

John McCain’s decision to suspend his campaign was made in the hopes that politics could be set aside to address our economic crisis. In response, Americans saw a familiar spectacle in Washington. At a moment of crisis that threatened the economic security of American families, Washington played the blame game rather than work together to find a solution that would avert a collapse of financial markets without squandering hundreds of billions of taxpayers’ money to bailout bankers and brokers who bet their fortunes on unsafe lending practices. Both parties in both houses of Congress and the administration needed to come together to find a solution that would deserve the trust of the American people. And while there were attempts to do that, much of yesterday was spent fighting over who would get the credit for a deal and who would get the blame for failure. There was no deal or offer yesterday that had a majority of support in Congress. There was no deal yesterday that included adequate protections for the taxpayers. It is not enough to cut deals behind closed doors and then try to force it on the rest of Congress — especially when it amounts to thousands of dollars for every American family. The difference between Barack Obama and John McCain was apparent during the White House meeting yesterday where Barack Obama’s priority was political posturing in his opening monologue defending the package as it stands. John McCain listened to all sides so he could help focus the debate on finding a bipartisan resolution that is in the interest of taxpayers and homeowners. The Democratic interests stood together in opposition to an agreement that would accommodate additional taxpayer protections. Senator McCain has spent the morning talking to members of the Administration, members of the Senate, and members of the House. He is optimistic that there has been significant progress toward a bipartisan agreement now that there is a framework for all parties to be represented in negotiations, including Representative Blunt as a designated negotiator for House Republicans. The McCain campaign is resuming all activities and the Senator will travel to the debate this afternoon. Following the debate, he will return to Washington to ensure that all voices and interests are represented in the final agreement, especially those of taxpayers and homeowners.

Wild Thing's comment.........

Please Senator McCain, please, please, please, please expose these Rats for the lying, corrupt bastards that they are. PLEASE call them out on this on LIVE NAT’L TV! I beg you!

McCain exposed and then killed the backroom deal the Rat leadership tried to cut with some second eschelon neocon republicans that would saddle every man woman and child (legal or not) with over 3K of debt. Killing that left McCain in the catbird's seat.

The ball has been moved considerably closer on a deal that is better than what the rats were trying to back room deal and shove down the tax payers throats. McCain came across as presidential for doing what he did and it exposed Obama as the fool he is.

Personally it would have been good if McCain had raised the stakes and stayed in Washington. But I am no expert at things like this. The fact that Obama made a fool of himself is something McCain can use and I hope he does.

If they are nto moving fast enough in Washington then McCain might as well do the debate since this is a subject he knows a lot about. That is another way to look at this too.

I am not trying to cover both sides of this but trying to understand it. hahaha One thing it very well could mean is that some kind of deal has been reached in Washington and the clean up is what is going on now with the conservatiuve Republicans and the evil democarts. We will have to wait and see.

I just hope McCain wipes the floor with HO-bama tonight in the debate!!!!!

Other then that good Lord this is the craziset time to be living in, but thank God we are all living in it even if we shake our heads and our blood is boiling most of the time.

What Happened in the Cabinet Room.....

( This was reported last night very late so wording of this below is in relation to that as well ) -- Wild Thing

What Went Down in the Cabinet Room ( Obama started screaming)
email from McCain camp

To address our current financial crisis, John McCain suspended his campaign and returned to Washington, D.C., today to help build a bipartisan consensus for a proposal that would protect the American taxpayer.

Despite today's news reports, there never existed a "deal," but merely a proposal offered by a small, select group of Members of Congress. As of right now, there exists only a series of principles, including greater oversight and measures to address CEO pay. However, these principles do not enjoy a consensus in Congress.

At today's cabinet meeting, John McCain did not attack any proposal or endorse any plan. John McCain simply urged that for any proposal to enjoy the confidence of the American people, stressing that all sides would have to cooperate and build a bipartisan consensus for a solution that protects taxpayers.

However, the Democrats allowed Senator Obama to run their side of the meeting. That did not work as the meeting quickly devolved into a contentious shouting match that did not seek to craft a bipartisan solution.

At this moment, the plan that has been put forth by the Administration does not enjoy the confidence of the American people as it will not protect that taxpayers and will sacrifice Main Street in favor of Wall Street.

The bottom line is that as of tonight, there are not enough Republican or Democrat votes for the current plan. However, we are still optimistic that a bipartisan solution will be found. Republicans and Democrats want a deal that will protect the taxpayers.

Tomorrow, John McCain will return to Capitol Hill where he will work with all sides to build a bipartisan solution that protects taxpayers and keeps Americans in their homes.

Wild Thing's comment........

I sure can believe Obama yelled he did to that old woman at his Townhall meeting for her just asking a question about terrorists. I posted that a few days ago.

Pelosi and Reid threw it to Obama since he wants to be President and he could not handle it. He got frustrated LOL probably and that is why he started screaming. Obama must be completely frustrated because it’s clear to him he has to actually perform. Until now, every so-called “achievement” has been the result of affirmative action. Now, when he doesn’t get his own way he doesn’t know how to handle the situation.

From what I have read all over the net in articles, McCain found out about the ACORN bs. McCain spent hours on the phone with Republicans and they agreed this is a no go at this time.

I would have loved to hear McCain yelled back at Obama but we don't know if he did or not.

I coudl care less who yelled but in Obama's yelling imo is not from anger but from fear. Fear of not knowing what to do, what to say, and his not being able to handle the responsibility and leadership. THAT is what makes a difference.

McCain has also managed to unite his party behind him, in a way that Obama never could have dreamed. The Republicans and McCain are working hand in hand right now. Thanks to his pick of Gov. Sarah Palin!!!!

The Obama camp is still trying to decide what to wear to a debate that might happen if McCain says it can go forward.

Barney Frank, Reid, Pelosi and Dodd are insane, but they know they have the power of the media on their side.

Rep. McCotter's Forceful Rebuke of Bailout and More Notes!

Rep. McCotter's (R-Mich) Forceful Rebuke of Bailout Plan on House Floor

Congressman Thaddeus McCotter

Before I was elected to Congress we used to hear that when faced with a crisis, members of Congress would invariably soil themselves, throw money at the problem and hope that it went away.

Unfortunately, in these dysfunctional economic times, we find that this process has continued.

As Americans face a potential meltdown of the financial sector, we have seen what I believe to be an inappropriate response starting with this Administration.

From the time we were informed that a potential financial meltdown was going to occur, this separate equal branch of government which is the U.S. Congress was told that we had but one alternative and that if we did not pass it quickly — in the time specified *by* the executive branch — that our economy would be severely damaged.

It has been my opinion that we were elected, by the sovereign people of the United States, to make important decisions on their behalf, to do it with the due diligence and devotion that is due and to come up with a positive solution to their situation.

Last night, I was struck by the fact that again we were told [by the President] that again if we did not give unlimited amounts of money and unlimited powers to the Executive Branch that *we* were failing in our due diligence and responsibilities to the American people.

I heard the President of the United States say that we do not understand the need to act.

That statement is false. We understand the need to act.

We heard from the President of the United States that we did not care about American families.

That statement is false. We care very much about American families.

What we did not hear was a recognition that a three-page document that gives to the Treasury Secretary and the Chairman of the Federal Reserve powers — the likes of which Stalin and Mao killed people for — was not an acceptable response to give to this separate, equal branch of government.

Today, we are told that House Republicans are standing in the way of a $700 billion use of your tax dollars to bail out the very people who caused this problem!

Guilty as charged!

House Republicans believe there is an alternative.

The Administration tells us that their first, last, only resort is to go to the taxpayers and bail out Wall Street. We fundamentally disagree with this!

Wall Street should bail out Wall Street.

House Republicans believe that the toxic assets clogging up our economy should first attempt to be recapitalized by the very people sitting on the sidelines with their money waiting for you the taxpayer to be fleeced and put it in so they are “confident that the market will work”.

We can not re-inflate the bubble.

The people who on Main Street invested and saved and had good credit their entire lives should not be asked to go back in to help cowboy capitalists who shot themselves in the foot.

I have supported the President when he has been correct.

But he is in err now.

House Republicans stood and supported the Patreus surge.

Today House Republicans oppose the Paulson splurge so we can have prosperity in America in the long run.

We will not engage in a rush to judgment that destroys the possibility of the free market and prosperity for decades to come.

We will not walk out of this room after a forced vote waving a piece of paper in our hands claiming “fleeced in our time.”

We will the job we were entrusted with.


Wild Thing's comment.........

I have posted about Rep. McCotter before, he is another one of the awesome conservatives on OUR side, yep a Republican but a conservative and that is what seperates the males from the MEN! saw Thaddeous McCotter several weeks ago on C-SPAN, he was speaking about the Republicans on the floor after Nancy Pelosi shut the lights out. He was awesome then too.

“What we did not hear was a recognition that a three-page document — that gives to the Treasury Secretary and the Chairman of the Federal Reserve powers the likes of which Stalin and Mao killed people for — was not an acceptable response to give to this separate, equal branch of government.”


Rush said that they let Obama take command at the meeting and he was a complete disaster! The Dems deferred to Obama, who ripped the Republican proposal. It disintegrated into a partisan shouting match. That's why he ran out the back door and then appeared on Fox News to act like he was in control of the situation. Talk about “take your kid to work day!” The Dems wanted to brag that Barry was the savior of the meeting. Good luck with that.

They asked Shelby if it was true 20% was going to ACORN.Shelby said it is absolutely true.

THANK GOD McCain came to town and had this ACORN funding derailed!

ACORN written in this deal.
They want more of the same, while socializing.

$140 Billion of this bailout to benefit voter fraud

According to several news and political sources, ACORN is set to make off with $140 Billion (with a B) from this bailout deal, more specifically according to Senator Graham, Section 5 of the Dodd counter-proposal to the Paulson Plan would set aside 20% of the profits from the Treasury’s sale of assets to The Housing Trust Fund and would benefit ACORN.

ACORN is a corrupt organization that has been accused and convicted of voter fraud in 13+ states. Some of their tactics have ranged from registering dead people to disrupting the testimony of General David Petraeus and Federal Reserve hearings, to trading cocaine for illegal ballots in Ohio back in 2004.

Lindsey Graham on Greta: Fox News

“And this deal that's on the table now is not a very good deal. Twenty percent of the money that should go to retire debt that will be created to solve this problem winds up in a housing organization called ACORN that is an absolute ill-run enterprise, and I can't believe we would take money away from debt retirement to put it in a housing program that doesn't work.”

Republican ....... John Boehner on Fox News:

“We will not agree to a Bill at taxpayer’s expense just to bail out Wall Street.” Congressman Roy Blunt spoke as well. Boehner took some questions and told the press that he’d been in conversations with the administration and the Speaker of the House all week. There was nothing that was put on the table yesterday that the Speaker, the Secretary of the Treasury or the President didn’t already know about. Conversations have been going on at that level, and I don’t know what games were being played at the White House yesterday...a gang-up on Boehner, but if they thought they were rolling me, they were kidding themselves.”

“Paulson and his team have not acted in good faith for this President or the administration for which they serve,” says a House Republican leader who was not present at the White House meeting, but who instead is part of the team hammering out the House GOP alternative. “We keep hearing about how Secretary Paulson is working with Democrats on this or that, yet he never seems to consider working with the party that essentially hired him. Perhaps he’s auditioning for a Democratic administration job. Our proposal didn’t just spring forth fully formed; we’ve been working on this for several days, and Treasury staff has known about it.”

Run down:

1. Paulson is a Dem and a buddy of Schumer.
2. Paulson is undermining Bush and helping the Dems...Paulson and other dems incl Quisling want McCain in Washington.
3. As Rush said, the reluctant astronaut, Barack goes to Washington.
4. In reality this was supposed to show off the "leadership skills" of Obama.
5. Obama tries to chair the meeting with PREZ there...Obama blew up the White House meeting
6. Dems now lie about the proceedings, saying McCain messed it up.
7. The concerns of the HR GOP are raised, and McCain backs up their concerns
8. Seeing what is going on, McCain goes to the debate. People are puzzled.

These Dems are NOT FOR THE SUCCESS of citizens of this country. They are for the success of SOCIALISM!!!!

Neither McCain nor Obama have approved of this plan. I guess Obama was upset too about his preciouis ACORN being exposed that it was part of the bill.

Senator Quisling Harry Reid: No votes Friday night to avoid ‘excuses’

Reid: No votes Friday night to avoid ‘excuses’

Las Vegas Sun

It won’t be votes in the Senate that keep Republican presidential candidate John McCain away from Friday night’s debate.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said today :

he would not be scheduling any votes to “make sure there’s no excuses to not go forward with the debate.”
“If ever there was a time in the history of our country … American people need to hear this.”

Republican National Committee spokesman Bill Riggs said:

“It’s clear that Harry Reid and Barack Obama would rather score cheap political points with Washington parlor games than do the business of the American people and find bipartisan solutions.”

Wild Thing's comment..............

Mccain and the Republicans care about the Country...the Dems and Obama care about is winning the election.

Harry Reid and his ilk would burn the country to the ground for a chance to score a political point.

After this poor excuse for humanity said that we have lost in Iraq, with our soldiers in harms way, he might as well have a stamp on his forehead makring him as a TRAITOR !

Obama Trying To Silence NRA Latest Ad Campaign




Barack Obama’s campaign is trying to silence the National Rifle Association’s latest ad campaign using strong arm tactics by threatening them with possible legal action if they run the ads:

Failure to prevent the airing of “false and misleading advertising” may be “probative of an underlying abdication of licensee responsibility” Cosmopolitan Broad. Corp v. FCC, 581 F.2d 917, 927 (D.C. Cir. 1978).

So basically, stop running NRA’s ads, or your broadcast license could be in jeopardy. They detail the WaPo’s repetition as proof. This is Chicago politics at its finest folks. If you can’t win fair, win dirty. This is not how a free society is supposed to function. This is not the kind of man I want leading my country.

Besides, every bit of what NRA claimed is true. It’s the Obama campaign and the news media that’s lying. The ads are based on a real, proven record.

Wild Thing's comment........

Communists can not allow opposing poits of view. What is encouraging is the NRA ads must be hitting the mark to draw this reaction.

What a thug Obama is, maybe we should call the ticket.....Thug and Plugs.

Some Notes On Yesterday's $700 Billion Bailout Meeting

White House meeting ends on sour note


A high-profile White House meeting on Treasury’s $700 billion Wall Street rescue plan ended Thursday on a sour, contentious note, with no joint endorsement by the two presidential candidates, Sens. John McCain and Barack Obama.

Democrats complained of being “blindsided” by a new conservative alternative to the plan first put forward by Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson. And the outcome casts doubt on the ability of Congress to move quickly on the matter, even after leaders of House and Senate banking committees reached a bipartisan agreement Thursday on the framework for legislation authorizing the massive government intervention.

It was McCain who urged President Bush to call the White House meeting attended by House and Senate leaders as well as Obama, his Democratic rival.

But the candidates left without commenting to reporters outside, and the whole sequence of events confirmed Treasury’s fears about inserting presidential politics into what were already difficult negotiations.

Frank, a strong Paulson ally, feels the secretary is being undercut in front of the president.“McCain and the House Republicans are undercutting the Paulson plan, talking about a wholly different approach,” Frank said prior to the meeting. And this was very much the line of attack at the White House: “This is the presidential campaign of John McCain undermining what Hank Paulson tells us is essential for the country.”

Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, the ranking Republican on the House Budget Committee and one of the authors of the conservative alternative, said that McCain had yet to sign onto the proposal. But Ryan confirmed that he and other House Republicans had met with the Arizona senator on the issue prior to the White House meeting in the offices of House Minority Leader John A. Boehner (R-Ohio).

“Our goal is not to derail. Our goal is to break the logjam. It’s a Plan B if Paulson can’t pass,” Ryan said. “This is such a crisis I’m not going to draw some line in the sand. We can’t leave without doing something, but we don’t think the votes are here for Paulson.”

Prior to the White House meeting, Sen. Bob Bennett (R-Utah) predicted legislation could be finalized in time for Congress to act this weekend. Sen. Judd Gregg (R-N.H.), who continued to represent Senate Republicans Thursday night and has close ties to the White House, conceded that portions of the package won’t be to Treasury’s liking, but the agreement was a step forward.

Senator Richard Shelby told reporters outside the White House that he did not believe there was an agreement and that the proposals by US Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson constituted a "bad plan".
"It will not solve problems, it will create more problems, we're rushing to judgment, that we do have stress in our market, but this is not the best way, we ought to look at alternatives," Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Alabama, said after emerging from a meeting at the White House with President Bush, congressional leaders and the presidential candidates.

from Dodd, Dow Jones Newswire:
“Meeting was contentious”
“Nothing more than a rescue plan for John McCain”
“Paulson needs to choose who’s side he’s on”
“I won’t be going back to the White House”

Chris Dodd being interviewed by Wolfie Blitzed. Dodd was NOT HAPPY. Said the Pubs had some different "principles" than what "we"--the Dims--had agreed upon.

Sen. Dodd throws gasoline on fire

Republican American

As a member and later chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, Sen. Christopher J. Dodd shoulders a good deal of the blame for the collapse of the national housing market, the subprime-mortgage-market meltdown and the latest convulsions on Wall Street.

Reams of legislation he has written or advocated affecting the housing, lending, insurance and securities industries have drained hundreds of billions out of the economy, ballooned the federal debt, cost tens of thousands of people their jobs and driven hundreds of thousands of homeowners into foreclosure, bankruptcy or both. For his efforts, Sen. Dodd has been rewarded in the 2008 election cycle with $7.65 million in campaign contributions — he took in $11.7 million in all — from the securities, insurance, real-estate and commercial-banking industries, according to his latest Federal Election Commission filing posted at
Sen. Dodd's list of donors reads like a who's who of who's in the stew: Citigroup, $310,294; SAC Capital Partners, $282,000; United Technologies, $263,400; AIG, $224,678; Bear Stearns, $205,600; St. Paul Travelers, $205,400; Royal Bank of Scotland, $203,750; Goldman Sachs, $175,600; Morgan Stanley, $155,000; Credit Suisse, $154,550; Merrill Lynch, $134,950; JPMorgan Chase, $129,150; Lehman Brothers, $128,400; KPMG, $113,100; General Electric, $108,250; Deloitte Touche, $108,000; USB, $101,900; Hartford Finance Services, $101,500; The Hartford, $94,350; Bank of America, $91,300.
With $165,400, Sen. Dodd also tops the list of members of Congress who took campaign cash from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac since 1989. Sen. Barack Obama, the self-styled agent of change, is a distant second at $126,000 and Sen. John Kerry is third at $111,000. In the top 20 are Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Long after the horses had left the barn, Sen. Dodd now pledges to "continue to work on solutions to help Americans weather this storm, including strengthening the housing sector, developing a second stimulus package and restructuring the regulation of the financial sector."
To which we say: Haven't you done enough damage?

Barney Frank As Chair of Financial Services Committee

The New Chair of the Financial Services Committee, Barney Frank, talked about his agenda with Politics TV

Barney Frank, the first day of the 110th Congress, first day, January 4th, 2007.

video source Limbaugh show

Barney Frank:

We can't continue to have economic growth that is concentrated in the hands of a few. In America we are becoming more and more unequal. Some inequality is necessary for a capitalist system but we've gone way beyond that, and the average working person, we're talking 80% of the population has seen an erosion in his or her economic position rather than advance. Specifically, I hope to deal in part with the housing crisis, by the way. The committee that I'll be chairing that has jurisdiction over housing and we hope very much to do an increase in the housing stock, so housing becomes affordable both for low-income people but also for people in the moderate income range.
I do believe that it's time for us to rein in these outrageous corporate CEO settlements in the hundreds of millions of dollars. It's reached a point where it's not simply envy that makes us upset about them. When Lee Raymond retires from ExxonMobil and gets $400 million and then that company stiffs its pension fund, we're talking about a real economic consequence. You cannot pay a handful of people so many billions of dollars and not have it impinge on what's available for other people. We'll be addressing that.

Wild Thing's comment...........

He wants to increase housing stocks, is that what I heard him say? Cookie had a rush job on this audio. We didn't have time to transcribe it all. But here you go. "I hope to deal with the housing crisis so that housing becomes affordable for low-income people." This was his goal. What has happened was his goal, meaning getting a bunch of people into houses who couldn't afford the mortgages.

Barney Frank on the first day of this Congress laid out the agenda, and he's got it! He's got his collapse.

Victor Davis Hanson is right. You keep sending these same people back there, you deserve 'em.

Just like in New Orleans what did they do? They re=elected NAGIN. Helloooo!!!!!!


"This was all caused by Democrats in government! If there were a Republican to blame, he would have been found and he would be in jail, or his life would be ruined as the result of never-ending congressional hearings. We have to continue to identify, to expose and punish the politicians who are responsible for undermining the market with political demands for risky loans to risky borrowers -- and they used the power of their positions to force this. "

"In the first place they were created and they were hailed as a way of helping people buy homes who didn't have the income to buy homes. Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton took credit for this when they did it but they are evading responsibility for it now, and the house of cards has collapsed and Clinton's even out there on Good Morning America (while dropping neutron bombs on Obama, by the way) suggesting that he did everything he could to get this whole thing fixed. He's the architect of this! And it must be said over and over."--- Rush Limbaugh quote

Noah Craft and Michael Fratkin Play Doctor in Vicious Obama anti-McCain ad

McCain has already released 1,173 pages of medical records!!!! - Wild Thing

CBS News for complete article

The details of McCain's health are contained in 1,173 pages of medical documents spanning 2000 to 2008 that his campaign made available to the Associated Press to make the case that he's healthy enough to serve as president, as well as to counter the notion that he's too old. McCain will turn 72 in August and would be the oldest elected president.

Among other medical issues outlined in the reports, McCain is praised for his cardiovascular fitness, described as "considerably younger physiologically" by a doctor after his performance on a heart stress test this year.
CBC's Henry Champ said the report is good news for McCain.
"All in all, I would say at a minimum that is an 'A' grading," Champ said, "and most people will be content to accept that he is healthy for the job."


Wild Thing's comment..........

Yes they are doctors but I would not go to a doctor that did not examine me and then put out some kind of a press release or video like this about my health. So Yesss to me they are BS doctors and dangerous as well to any patient that would even go to people like this.

Would someone remind me about the health records we got on “I never had sex with that women” Bill Clinton I don’t remember his ever showing anything to the public in 8 years.

How about records of Hillary’s health?

HOW ABOUT OBAMA'S?? The presidential candidate who hasn’t released his medical records is Obama, not McCain so I’m not sure why this guy is calling out for his medical records to be released. Does he have long-term effects from hard drug usage in past years?

Way to go, Ploufe and Axlerod! Imply that anyone over 70 has one foot in the grave, or (at least) Alzheimer’s.

That line of attack ought to play REALLY WELL to the gray panther set.

Oh, and don’t forget that seniors have one “affliction” that the youngsters don’t seem to be bothered with... they VOTE consistently.

I think McCain’s 96 year old alert, sharp mom, should smack the crap out of this guy.

What a pathetic attempt to attack an honored Veteran of the USA.

Now let's check out this Noah Craft, M.D. shall we.

Let's start first with his website

Noah Craft, M.D.

So he is a doctor at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.

This idiot doctor diagnosed a patient without actually seeing, talking to, or examining that patient. Or without the blood tests and CAT scans or MRI’s.

Medical Board Certification: Dermatology, American Board of Dermatology, 2005

Soooo this doctor has forgotten that he’s only a dermatologist!

The Geffen connection is interesting. ( he is gay and has made his money in Geffen records,, American record executive, film producer, theatrical producer and philanthropist.etc)

The “Gay Mafia” is rather quietly playing a larger and larger role in Democratic politics.

They were one of the earliest groups behind Kerry, not because Kerry was gay, but because they saw him as the most gay-friendly of the dem candidates.

They were rather quietly, but hugely behind Hillary.

And Obama and his wife have catered big time to them and to their causes.

Typical Race-baiting Perp Jailbird and Impeched Rep.Alcee Hastings and Anti-American

Florida congressman points to Palin to rally Jews to Obama

Rep. Alcee Hastings denounced hunters and gun owners as racists and anti-Semites, and by implication beer-swilling NASCAR-watching pickup-truck-driving redneck white trash. This is consistent with Obama's own description of Pennsylvanians as "bitter" small down people who "cling to guns and religion," and the common reference to working people as "white trash" on Obama's own Web site.

Rep. Alcee Hastings told an audience of Jewish Democrats Wednesday that they should be wary of Republican VP nominee Sarah Palin because “anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks.”


Rep. Alcee Hastings told an audience of Jewish Democrats Wednesday that they should be wary of Republican VP nominee Sarah Palin because “anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks.”
“If Sarah Palin isn’t enough of a reason for you to get over whatever your problem is with Barack Obama, then you damn well had better pay attention,” Rep. Alcee Hastings of Florida said at a panel about the shared agenda of Jewish and African-American Democrats Wednesday. Hastings, who is African-American, was explaining what he intended to tell his Jewish constituents about the presidential race. “Anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks. So, you just think this through,” Hastings added as the room erupted in laughter and applause.
After telling attendees that the most important thing Jewish and African-American Democrats could do to support one another was to get Sen. Barack Obama elected president, Hastings had one more message: “For those of you like me that supported Sen. Hillary Clinton, she lost! Get over it!”


Alcee Hastings Impeached Federal Judge

Congressional Rep. Alcee Hastings was a federal Judge.

In 1989 Democratic Rep. John Conyers served as the chairman of the House Judiciary subcommittee that investigated Hastings who was charged with taking bribes.

Conyers and the subcommittee unanimously recommended that Hastings be impeached. The charges were heard by the House and they voted 413 to 3 to impeach Hastings.

Conyers went on to serve as one of the House impeachment managers who successfully argued before the Senate that Hastings should be convicted and removed from office.

Hastings was stripped of his position as a federal judge for conspiring to extort a $150,000 bribe in a case before him, repeatedly lying about it under oath and manufacturing evidence at his trial.

In 1992 Hastings was then elected to serve in the same Congress that impeached him.

In 1999 he made a run for Governor but didn't get very far.

Wild Thing's comment........

OOPS on Hastings...... He must have forgot.........Joe Biden having stated he owns at least two shotguns for Hunting is a RACIST and ANTI-SEMITE???

LMAO this guy is nuts and soooo filled with hate it just oozes out of his ugly ass face. Hey Hastings you are such a GREAT example of the kind of low life that supports B. Hussein Obama.

ILLEGAL Aliens and The Mortgage Mess


New York Post

by Michelle Malkin

AS panicked politicians prepare to fork over $1 trillion in taxpayer funding to rescue Wall Street, they've fingered regulation, deregulation, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the Community Reinvestment Act, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, both Bushes, greedy banks, greedy borrowers, greedy short-sellers and minority-home-ownership promoters for blame.

But there's one villain that has slipped notice: how illegal immigration, crime-enabling banks and open-borders Bush policies fueled the mortgage crisis. It's no coincidence that the areas hardest hit by the foreclosure wave - Loudoun County, Va., California's Inland Empire, Stockton and San Joaquin Valley, and Las Vegas and Phoenix - also happen to be some of the nation's largest illegal alien sanctuaries. Half of the mortgages to Hispanics are subprime. A quarter of all those subprime loans are in default and foreclosure.

Regional reports across the country have decried the subprime meltdown's impact on illegal-immigrant "victims." A July report showed that in seven of the 10 metro areas with the highest foreclosure rates, Hispanics were at least one-third of the population; in two of those areas - Merced and Salinas-Monterey, Calif. - Hispanics comprised half the population. The National Council of La Raza and its Development Fund have received millions in federal funds to "counsel" their constituents on obtaining mortgages with little to no money down; the group almost succeeded in attaching a $10 million earmark for itself in one of the housing bills passed this spring.

For the last five years, I've reported on the rapidly expanding illegal-alien home-loan racket. The top banks clamoring for their handouts as their profits plummet, led by Wachovia and Bank of America, launched aggressive campaigns to woo illegal-alien homebuyers. The quasi-governmental Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority guaranteed home loans to illegal immigrants.

The Washington Post noted in 2005: "Hispanics, the nation's fastest-growing major ethnic or racial group, have been courted aggressively by real-estate agents, mortgage brokers and programs for first-time buyers that offer help with closing costs. Ads proclaim: "Sin verificacion de ingresos! Sin verificacion de documento!" - which loosely translates as, 'Income tax forms are not required, nor are immigration papers.' "

Fraudsters also have engaged in house-flipping rings using illegal aliens as straw buyers. Among many examples the FBI cites: a conspiracy in Las Vegas involving a former Nevada First Residential Mortgage Company branch manager who directed loan officers and processors in the origination of 233 fraudulent Federal Housing Authority loans valued at over $25 million. The defrauders made and submitted false employment and income documentation for borrowers; most were illegal immigrants from Mexico. To date, the FBI reported, "Fifty-eight loans with a total value of $6.2 million have gone into default, with a loss to the Housing and Urban Development Department of over $1.9 million."

It's the tip of the iceberg. Thanks to lax Bush administration policies allowing illegal aliens to use "matricula consular cards" and taxpayer-identification numbers to open bank accounts, mortgage fraud has grown. Money-lenders still have no access to a verification system to check Social Security numbers before approving loans.

In an interview about rampant illegal-alien home-loan fraud, a spokeswoman for the US General Accounting Office told me five years ago: "Considering the size of Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Houston and other large cities throughout the United States known to be inundated with illegal aliens, I don't think the federal government is willing to expose this problem for financial reasons as well as for fear of political repercussions."

The chickens are coming home to roost. Law-abiding taxpayers are going to pay for it.

Wild Thing's comment.........

And the American taxpayers are forced to subsidize the support of illegal aliens once again!

Illegals weren’t the sole cause but they damned sure were a warning sign and some of us screamed loud and often about it. We were called racist, nativist, socialists, conspiracy theorists, and anti capitalists.

And where are the name callers now?

Screaming that the world will end if we don’t give these banks money to pay for the disaster that wasn’t going to happen.

The saddest thing about the entire bailout is that the history is being ignored, how we got here is ever so important!

The illegals/and lending to those who had no right borrowing, are a huge part of it as is the fact that several times the rats voted down bills to solve the problem earlier. But, no on will talk about it.

Illegal aliens - The gift that keeps on giving.

GREAT Ann Coulter Article

They gave your mortgage to a less qualified minority

by Ann Colulter

Ann Coulter .com

On MSNBC this week, Newsweek's Jonathan Alter tried to connect John McCain to the current financial disaster, saying: "If you remember the Keating Five scandal that (McCain) was a part of ... He's really getting a free ride on the fact that he was in the middle of the last great financial scandal in our country."

McCain was "in the middle of" the Keating Five case in the sense that he was "exonerated." The lawyer for the Senate Ethics Committee wanted McCain removed from the investigation altogether, but, as the New York Times reported: "Sen. McCain was the only Republican embroiled in the affair, and Democrats on the panel would not release him."

So John McCain has been held hostage by both the Viet Cong and the Democrats.

Alter couldn't be expected to know that: As usual, he was lifting material directly from Kausfiles. What is unusual was that he was stealing a random thought sent in by Kausfiles' mother, who, the day before, had e-mailed: "It's time to bring up the Keating Five. Let McCain explain that scandal away."

The Senate Ethics Committee lawyer who investigated McCain already had explained that scandal away – repeatedly. It was celebrated lawyer Robert Bennett, most famous for defending a certain horny hick president a few years ago.

In February this year, on Fox News' "Hannity and Colmes," Bennett said, for the eight billionth time:

"First, I should tell your listeners I'm a registered Democrat, so I'm not on (McCain's) side of a lot of issues. But I investigated John McCain for a year and a half, at least, when I was special counsel to the Senate Ethics Committee in the Keating Five. ... And if there is one thing I am absolutely confident of, it is John McCain is an honest man. I recommended to the Senate Ethics Committee that he be cut out of the case, that there was no evidence against him."

It's bad enough for Alter to be constantly ripping off Kausfiles. Now he's so devoid of his own ideas, he's ripping off the idle musings of Kausfiles' mother.

Even if McCain had been implicated in the Keating Five scandal – and he wasn't – that would still have absolutely nothing to do with the sub-prime mortgage crisis currently roiling the financial markets. This crisis was caused by political correctness being forced on the mortgage lending industry in the Clinton era.

Before the Democrats' affirmative-action lending policies became an embarrassment, the Los Angeles Times reported that, starting in 1992, a majority-Democratic Congress "mandated that Fannie and Freddie increase their purchases of mortgages for low-income and medium-income borrowers. Operating under that requirement, Fannie Mae, in particular, has been aggressive and creative in stimulating minority gains."

Under Clinton, the entire federal government put massive pressure on banks to grant more mortgages to the poor and minorities. Clinton's secretary of housing and urban development, Andrew Cuomo, investigated Fannie Mae for racial discrimination and proposed that 50 percent of Fannie Mae's and Freddie Mac's portfolio be made up of loans to low- to moderate-income borrowers by the year 2001.

Instead of looking at "outdated criteria," such as the mortgage applicant's credit history and ability to make a down payment, banks were encouraged to consider nontraditional measures of credit-worthiness, such as having a good jump shot or having a missing child named "Caylee."

Threatening lawsuits, Clinton's Federal Reserve demanded that banks treat welfare payments and unemployment benefits as valid income sources to qualify for a mortgage. That isn't a joke – it's a fact.

When Democrats controlled both the executive and legislative branches, political correctness was given a veto over sound business practices.

In 1999, liberals were bragging about extending affirmative action to the financial sector. Los Angeles Times reporter Ron Brownstein hailed the Clinton administration's affirmative-action lending policies as one of the "hidden success stories" of the Clinton administration, saying that "black and Latino homeownership has surged to the highest level ever recorded."

Meanwhile, economists were screaming from the rooftops that the Democrats were forcing mortgage lenders to issue loans that would fail the moment the housing market slowed and deadbeat borrowers couldn't get out of their loans by selling their houses.

A decade later, the housing bubble burst and, as predicted, food-stamp-backed mortgages collapsed. Democrats set an affirmative-action time bomb, and now it's gone off.

In Bush's first year in office, the White House chief economist, N. Gregory Mankiw, warned that the government's "implicit subsidy" of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, combined with loans to unqualified borrowers, was creating a huge risk for the entire financial system.

Rep. Barney Frank denounced Mankiw, saying he had no "concern about housing." How dare you oppose suicidal loans to people who can't repay them! The New York Times reported that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were "under heavy assault by the Republicans," but these entities still had "important political allies" in the Democrats.

Now, at a cost of hundreds of billions of dollars, middle-class taxpayers are going to be forced to bail out the Democrats' two most important constituent groups: rich Wall Street bankers and welfare recipients.

Political correctness had already ruined education, sports, science and entertainment. But it took a Democratic president with a Democratic Congress for political correctness to wreck the financial industry.

OH and one more thing I just saw this photo of Ann, I thought you might like to see it.

Wild Thing's comment..........

"A decade later, the housing bubble burst and, as predicted, food-stamp-backed mortgages collapsed. "

I love how she puts things .

Ann coulter BRILLIANTLY (again) lays out the facts that it was DEMOCRAP policies that caused this mess.

Obamarama should be SCARED S***LESS that this will be made public.

I wish they would READ this on FOX and put it on the front of every newspaper!!!!

Reid to McCain: Don't Come Back to Capitol

Reid to McCain: Don't Come Back to Capitol

abc news

A Democrat tells ABC News that, in a phone call late this afternoon, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., told Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., that it would NOT be helpful for him to come back to Washington, D.C., to work on the Wall Street bailout bill.

McCain this afternoon suspended his campaign and said he would skip the first presidential debate in order to return to Capitol Hill to work on the log-jammed Bush administration legislation, which, as of Wednesday afternoon, was in peril.

McCain had phoned Reid to ask about the prospects of him, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., and others to sit down and work together on hammering out a bipartisan proposal.

"Sorry," Reid said to him, a Democrat close to Reid says.

Reid then read McCain the statement he had just put out:

"This is a critical time for our country," says the Reid statement. "While I appreciate that both candidates have signaled their willingness to help, Congress and the administration have a process in place to reach a solution to this unprecedented financial crisis. I understand that the candidates are putting together a joint statement at Sen. Obama’s suggestion. But it would not be helpful at this time to have them come back during these negotiations and risk injecting presidential politics into this process or distract important talks about the future of our nation’s economy. If that changes, we will call upon them. We need leadership; not a campaign photo op. If there were ever a time for both candidates to hold a debate before the American people about this serious challenge, it is now.”

Wild Thing's comment...............

McCain is a sitting senator!!!! What right does this Harry Reid character to tell McCain he shouldn’t come back. It was the Dem’s who caused all this in the first place!

Red is ticked, his vacation plans are being messed up.LOL

McCain could always remind Reid that McCain, Obama, and Biden are all accepting paychecks for doing the work of the Senate.

Hey Harry they need you in Las Vegas they are bankrupt!

McCain has really smoked all of these jerks out. They don’t lead. They follow and nip at other’s heels.

Uh Um Uh Candidate aka Obama Told To Report To The Principal's Office

President Bush called Obama directly to invite him to the meeting, White House press secretary Dana Perino said. An Obama spokesman said the senator would attend.


Wild Thing's comment.........

Obama hates Bush, speaks disparagingly of him every day. It was reported on Fox that McCain is the one that told GWB to call Obama. It was McCain's idea, that tells me he has something up his sleeve. No way does Bush want to screw McCain or the Republicans, there is something we don't know.

Democrats Are To Blame For This Mess

This video from Fox news just came out yesterday, and it is an EXCELLENT report on the origins of this mess.

This is a Democrat-made mess.
by Rush Limbaugh

The headline in the New York Times today: "McCain's Aide's Firm was Paid by Freddie Mac -- One of the giant mortgage companies at the heart of the credit crisis paid $15,000 a month from the end of 2005 through last month to a firm owned by Senator John McCain's campaign manager," Rick Davis.

The McCain people are livid. They have put out a response on their website that refutes all of this.

This is not even bias. This is propaganda. It is false, it is provably false, and what it ignores is that Obama -- and they don't even mention it! -- Obama received $109,000 from Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae, one of the two. In just two and a half years in the Senate. It took Chris Dodd about nine years to accrue $120,000 from Fannie Mae. Obama did it in less than two years. How the hell does that happen? What the story also does not mention, ladies and gentlemen, is that it was John McCain who authored and cosponsored legislation to make stricter regulation oversight of both of these things, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, going back to '05 and to '06.

McCain is the one guy -- a lot of Republicans, the president, a lot of Republicans -- who came in and said, "You guys are out of control in there and this is going to lead to a major problem," tried to set up new regulations. The Democrats blocked it at every turn. I'm at a loss to explain this, other than to describe it as simply the New York Times as willingly, openly, and in-front-of-the-world decided to become an official arm of the Obama campaign. This is an unpaid ad is what this is. This is an unpaid campaign ad filled with propaganda that is designed to destroy McCain.

Guess what, folks. Paul Begala was also a consultant here. Not a lobbyist, he was a consultant here.

He was a paid consultant to Freddie Mac until this month, and who is Begala for in this whole race? Look it, the bottom line in this damn thing is this. It was constructed and run by Democrats. It is filth. It is raw sewage sulking around in there, and it's of their making, and it has presented a crisis to the US economy, and it was all based on liberalism. Liberal, socialist ideas created Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and then raped them and distorted their original purpose, when the Democrats turned this thing into nothing more than a personal piggy bank for each other and their party.

How Democrat Thieves Looted Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac

by Rush Limbaugh

Now, let's review a little history here. Long before the subprime crisis, the Bush administration not only warned of impending calamity, they had a plan to avert it. Fannie Mae, under the leadership of Clinton appointee Franklin Raines, who's now an Obama insider, economic advisor, and Freddie Mac, had issued over one-and-a-half trillion dollars in loans, but their accounting was in shambles. The agency that Congress set up to monitor them had failed to rein 'em in, so on September 11, 2003 -- this is five years ago -- President Bush proposed the agency that Congress set up to monitor them. He proposed what the New York Times called the most significant regulatory overhaul in the housing finance industry since the savings and loan crisis. The New York Times called it that. Central to Bush's proposal was creating a new agency to oversee Fannie and Freddie.

Franklin Raines, a hundred million dollars over I think seven years working at Fannie Mae while running it into the ground. He was also OMB director working for Clinton, making his usual $150,000 a year. That's chump change. These people go to Washington, and they siphon stuff. all of these programs are fraudulent. How many congressmen have we heard about, these stories, they arrive with nothing and they leave with a net worth of millions. There's only one way this can happen, and that is deals with contributors, lobbyists. So it's the largest stash of money that's just waiting to be taken in the form of legitimate grants, commissions, personal fees for what have you. It's just waiting there to be grabbed. And guess where liberals gravitate? Washington, DC. You know, we conservatives look at Washington as someplace we want to be smaller. We don't target our lives to take control of government. We target our lives to try to limit its size and influence. Liberals, government is God, government is religion, government is their nirvana. They seek jobs there for the purpose of infesting the place with each other in lifetime-appointed positions so as to forever control as much of life in this country as possible, and when they can, grab a little from the till. And they do it.

Even though Bush proposed a new oversight committee, the Democrats said no way. They cried foul. Barney Frank said these two entities, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, they're not facing any kind of financial crisis.

Barney Frank, "They're not facing any kind of financial crisis." Melvin Watt, Democrat, North Carolina, he agreed. He accused Bush of wanting this oversight committee so he could weaken the bargaining power of poorer families

So this was nothing more than Barack Obama-type cynicism and racism, Melvin Watt accusing Bush of weakening the bargaining power of poor families. So, Democrats did not pay any attention to any of the problems going on, they looked the other way. In fact they made the problems even worse by extending loans to people in greater numbers who couldn't pay them back. So, instead of solving the problem, Democrat insiders kept using Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac as personal piggy banks, Clinton-era policies fueled the giveaway that is now in the famous words of Jeremiah Wright, coming home to roost. Democrats fought every effort, every reform, and now they're rewriting history. It's just a sitting duck. It's just a sitting duck issue.

Next we have Daniel Mudd, 2005 on Capitol Hill, Fannie Mae, Interim CEO.

From an old Tape on Mudd ....this is his interim swearing-in ceremony, Daniel Mudd. He's phrasing the Congressional Black Caucus for helping save Fannie Mae.

MUDD: I am humbled to come here today to reaffirm the friendship and the partnership between Fannie Mae and the Congressional Black Caucus. Fannie Mae is determined to keep tearing down the barriers to deliver on the American dream and that means we need to work together with the CBC.

Rush: He's phrasing the Congressional Black Caucus for helping save Fannie Mae. This is all about Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, out of control. They had a regulatory agency looking over their shoulder, they had no authority, they were in trouble starting all the way back in 1997.

I know Obama's running around blaming Bush and the Republicans and so forth, which is typical, but this is a sitting duck issue for McCain and Palin to blame the real culprits here, and that is Democrats in Congress.

I'm telling you when it comes to this stuff, whether it's Hurricane Katrina and the aftermath, I don't care whatever problem you talk about, all roads lead to Congress, in this case the Democrat Congress back in the nineties. Congress writes the laws. Congress sets up the way these government-run institutions, even with so-called private sector involvement, are going to operate. And then when the excrement hits the fan, guess who gets to act like they were clueless and had no idea what was going on and they get to investigate? The very people who messed it up, set it up in the first place. The very people who create the problem then investigate it as though they were innocent bystanders and spectators and then they give themselves even more control of the mess they made ostensibly out of benevolence to fix it. And remember all this chatter during campaign finance reform that money in the electoral process was corrupting good people, and I never thought that was the case.

I never thought that our electoral system and campaign contributions and donations was corrupting in and of itself, but I'll tell you, that large stash of money sitting around waiting to be looted by people in Washington, various degrees of power, I am telling you there is a level of corruption in that town with people thinking that all money is theirs, what you end up with is what they decide you should have. They do not realize that that big pile of money is produced by one thing, the collective work and productivity of the American people. If the American people didn't work and produce and weren't paying confiscatory taxes, that big pile of money wouldn't be there. These people create nothing; they produce nothing. They gum up the private sector, they clog it you with all kinds of things, then they act like they had nothing to do with it, then they come in and fix it and appoint themselves an oversight role that gives them even more power over the so-called fixed situation.

The point is, this problem started back in the nineties with the Clintons demanding the end of redlining. That's really where this starts, the end of redlining. Redlining was a bogus charge that lending institutions would look at the race of the applicant and just refuse on the basis of race, not on the basis of anything else, it was racist, redlining was racist, and I don't doubt that it happened in some cases. So the fix for it, always an overstep, it's always an overreach. So to extend the American dream to everybody, they said, "Get rid of redlining and loan money to people that can't pay it back. That's the way we're going to fix it." It's sort of like affirmative action.

We lent more money to people that can't pay it back than any company in history. And that money is now gone! And, by the way, we're not a company; we are a government-run outfit. This whole notion that Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac are private sector things with little government ownership, you can't have any government ownership in a private sector entity and still call it private sector.

So here this guy, MUDD, is, he's showing up, this is after Frank Raines, all this corruption, this is 2005, and this guy shows up and he falls on the sword for the Congressional Black Caucus, you're our hope, you're our dream, you are the people who kept us together and this and that, you are our family. I humbly ask you to help us and to help me. Now, what the hell does this tell you that the root of the problem is?

More of what MUDD said is played by Rush with Rush interjecting throughout the playing of the audio tape:

MUDD: We will work hard inside our company to resolve the serious matters before us, to put our house in order, and to forge a new future.

RUSH: That really worked.

MUDD: And all the while, you will see Fannie Mae reaching out and listening to the caucus.

RUSH: Yeah.

MUDD: Over a century of endeavor you have earned the reputation as the conscience of Congress.

RUSH: Don't make me gag.

MUDD: In many ways, I want to tell you today you're also the conscience of Fannie Mae.

RUSH: Well, now we know.

MUDD: -- keep us on course to serve those who need serving the most.

RUSH: There you have it, all roads lead to Congress. I mean I have never heard somebody kiss ass in public like this in my life. I mean I may have. I just don't remember it. But I mean this guy, is he still around, or is he sick with anal poisoning? Daniel Mudd, anybody seen Daniel Mudd lately? This, ladies and gentlemen, identifies the el problemo, for those of you in Nevada, Florida, Colorado, and Nebraska listening to Obama ads.

RUSH: By the way, we found out where Daniel Mudd, by the way, he's Roger Mudd's son, of CBS fame. This is Braden Keil at the New York Post from just three days ago. "As more than a million US homeowners face devastating mortgage foreclosures, ousted Fannie Mae CEO Daniel Mudd continues to live in an opulent Washington, DC, mansion replete with expansive gardens, servants' quarters and a home theater. Mudd, whose former company," Fannie Mae, don't call this a company "is being bailed out by billions in taxpayer dollars, calls home a 22-room Colonial mansion on Newark Street in tony Cleveland Park, built on the former property of President Grover Cleveland. The eight-bedroom, eight-bath pad includes large public rooms with fireplaces, a home theater, a gym, a wine cellar, a solarium, servants' quarters, a terrace off the master-bedroom suite, and a gourmet kitchen. The gated, landscaped property also features a pool, fountains, gardens and a guesthouse.

"The property is so lavish that some company employees dubbed it 'Mudd Manor.' And they're furious that the executive at the helm of the ship as it sank into profound crisis has surfaced relatively unscathed, at least for now. 'Hey, he lost his limo and corner suite [at the office], but Mudd Manor is not a bad place to contemplate your next move,' said a bitter Fannie Mae employee who requested anonymity. 'Most Fannie Mae employees are reeling from their employee stock-option-plan account balances' going to cents on the dollar.' Mudd, the son of former newsman Roger Mudd and descendent of Dr. Samuel Mudd, who treated Lincoln's assassin, John Wilkes Booth, did not return calls for comment." Now, by the way, something else you need to know here. "Under the terms of his employment contract, Daniel Mudd," who you just heard bowing down and kissing the rear of the Congressional Black Caucus in 2005, "Under the terms of his employment contract, Mudd could collect $9.3 million in severance pay, retirement benefits and compensation, as long as his dismissal was 'without cause.' His salary last year was $900,000, although in a radio interview last month, he didn't deny reports that he raked in a total of $43 million in stock options, bonuses and overall compensation through the years."

So you add this to Franklin Raines' 100 million and Jim Johnson, what he ever got out of it, and Jamie Gorelick's part of the group that got $75 million out of Fannie Mae, and you see precisely what this was. It was indeed a Democrat Party piggy bank disguised as a lending agency for people who couldn't afford anything. Now, the piece de resistance. "Democratic Sens. Barack Obama, Chuck Schumer, and Jack Reed have written to Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson to object to golden parachutes for Mudd and ousted Freddie Mac Chairman Richard Syron, saying it would be 'a gross violation of the public trust.'" Yeah, they had to do that. Obama already got his money out of there in the form of campaign contributions and so forth.


Wild Thing's comment..........

I realize this is a LONG post and I am so sorry, but this is so important to get these facts. Rush has links at his site to back up everything he said and played on this show.

Enough of the lies from the left blaming Bush, McCain and what the heck Palin. This above is from facts, the in your face to the democrats facts that we should know about.

What is the difference in Democrats and terrorists? The terrorists want us dead. They both want to destroy our country, they both have an agenda to take over our country, they both lie, and they BOTH destroy everything they are involved with. Like the way the terrorists destroyed the beauty and wonderful farms the Israeli's kept in Gaza, the terrorists went in and burned and destroyed them.....and this was AFTER Gaza was handed over to the evil terrorists!!!!

The same thing with the democrats they get into our politics and destroy commerce, busiiness ( small and large), want to tax we the citizens to death, lie, cheat and steal. Are the most corrupt of both parties and are the enemy within our country. They keep us from drilling where we should and could be for oil that we have in abundance. They could care less if their own voters are paying big money for gas and with winter coming.

Regarding the military both democrats and terrorists are on the same side imo. I am speaking of the democrats of today and for the last 50 years.

They mess up and then blame those that kept warning that things were going wrong and needed to be fixed. Well I am sick of it!!!!!!

Marine Plans To File Slander Suit Against Murtha


There's a two and a half minute video at link...HERE........ with the below story


Former Marine lance corporal, Justin Sharratt, files suit against Congressman John Murtha

Second defamation suit to be filed by a Marine who Murtha said "murdered innocent civilians in cold-blood". Sharratt is a constituent of Murtha in Pennsylvania's 12th District. Press conferences tomorrow.

Marine Plans To File Slander Suit Against Murtha

WASHINGTON, PA (KDKA) ― A local Marine cleared in the deaths of civilians in Iraq says Congressman John Murtha made public comments that were unproven, untrue and unfair.

Now, Lance Corporal Justin Sharratt is planning to file suit in federal court against Murtha on Thursday morning.

The suit accuses the congressman of slander and violating the Marine's right to a fair trial and due process.

Sharratt was one of eight Marines charged after 24 Iraqi civilians were killed in Haditha. He was charged with three counts of unpremeditated murder.

It's alleged in the lawsuit that before the outcome of the case, Congressman Murtha made slanderous comments.

Three years after the deaths, seven of eight Marines have been cleared, including Sharratt. There's now a website,, to let the world know that he has been cleared.

The eighth Marine is still waiting for his day in court.

KDKA contacted Murtha's office for comment on this suit but there's no word back from them yet.

Wild Thing's comment...........

OUTSTANDING!!! I hope there are six more lawsuits lined up and ready to go.
Jack Murtha, you are truly treasonous scum. I hope more news like this brings Murtha's detestable, treasonous words and actions back to the forefront of voters' minds.

And let's not forget Lt. Col. Bill Russell's who is running against Murtha!

"We now know that Congressman Jack Murtha's long, public indictment of American Marines was factually wrong. Instead of "cold blooded killers," court rulings reveal a dramatically different story of personal courage under fire. True heroism.
Lt. Col. Bill Russell's grassroots campaign is setting the record straight. By standing up for fellow veterans, military personal and average taxpayers, he's taking on one of Washington's most entrenched powerbrokers in what columnist Michelle Malkin calls a "David versus Goliath" contest.
A survivor of the September 11, 2001 attacks on the Pentagon, Bill's campaign is a call to conservative reform and patriotic action."

McCain Campaign Launches Coalition to Protect Coal Jobs

The Coal Miner

McCain Campaign Launches Coalition to Protect Coal Jobs

ARLINGTON, VA -- U.S. Senator John McCain's presidential campaign today launched the Coalition to Protect Coal Jobs. The coalition, a nationwide group including members of Congress, state government and other influential leaders, will spread the message about the importance of clean coal technology and the advantages of tapping the country's vast coal reserves. The group will also speak out to protect critical coal jobs when they come under attack from the most anti-American energy ticket in history.

In addition to providing domestic energy, the coal industry is a critical part of the economy in several states. As part of John McCain's "all of the above" energy plan, the Lexington Project, clean coal will be a key component of the drive to energy independence.

John McCain's support for clean coal technology is in sharp contrast with both Barack Obama and his running mate, Joe Biden. Earlier this year Barack Obama said, "What we ought to tax is dirty energy, like coal" and just last week, Joe Biden claimed to be a "hard-coal miner" on his trip to Virginia, saying that it was "nice to be back in coal country." Yet a few days earlier in Ohio, Senator Biden said he wants "no coal plants here in America" and that he and Barack Obama are "not supporting clean coal."

Obama's Legislative Record Shows He Has Opposed Coal:

In 2007, Obama Voted Against Mandating The Production Of Six Billion Gallons Of Clean Coal-Derived Fuels. "Bunning, R-Ky., amendment no. 1628 to the Reid, D-Nev., substitute amendment no. 1502.

The Bunning amendment would mandate that 6 billion gallons of clean coal-derived fuels' be produced by 2022. It would define these fuels as having 20 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions than gasoline and being produced by facilities that capture 100 percent of carbon dioxide emissions." (H.R. 6, CQ Vote #213: Rejected 39-55: R 39-6; D 0-47; I 0-2, 6/19/07, Obama Voted Nay)

Obama: "The Bunning amendment would have been premature in requiring the production of billions of gallons of coal-to-liquids without providing strong environmental safeguards to ensure that this new fuel alleviates, not worsens, our climate crisis."

(Sen. Barack Obama, "Obama Statement On Coal-To-Liquid Fuel Proposals," Press Release, 6/19/07)

In 2007, Obama Voted Against Authorizing Funds For Coal-To-Liquid Fuels. "Inhofe, R-Okla., amendment no. 1505 to the Reid substitute amendment no. 1502. The Inhofe amendment would expedite the permitting process for the expansion of refinery facilities and authorize funds for the development of coal-to-liquid and cellulosic biomass fuels." (H.R. 6, CQ Vote #210: Rejected 43-52: R 43-2; D 0-48; I 0-2, 6/13/07, Obama Voted Nay)

The article is very long and has several comments, you can go HERE to read the entire article or scan it.

Wild Thing's comment..............

This whole Obama thing is not pro working class.

Battle ground states currently; NM, CO, PA, VA, WV, OH

All produce coal. Obama and Biden have given statements that they want to end coal burning. Coal mining will suffer.

Joe Biden claimed to be a “hard-coal miner” on his trip to Virginia, saying that it was “nice to be back in coal country. Yet a few days earlier in Ohio, Senator Biden said he wants “no coal plants here in America” and that he and Barack Obama are “not supporting clean coal.”

Raving Lunatic Al Gore Urges 'Civil Disobedience' Toward Coal Plants

Al Gore Urges 'Civil Disobedience' Toward Coal Plants

Fox News

Al Gore called Wednesday for "civil disobedience" to combat the construction of coal power plants without the ability to store carbon, Reuters reported.

The former vice president, whose efforts to raise awareness of global warming have made him the most prominent voice on that issue, made the comment during a session at the fourth annual Clinton Global Initiative in Manhattan.

"If you're a young person looking at the future of this planet and looking at what is being done right now, and not done, I believe we have reached the stage where it is time for civil disobedience to prevent the construction of new coal plants that do not have carbon capture and sequestration," Gore said, according to Reuters.

It wasn't clear what specific action he intended by "civil disobedience," which calls for the intentional violation of laws deemed to be unjust.

Wild Thing's comment..........

More proof that democrats are insane...good grief!

He’s a raving lunatic, but calling for attacks on coal plants is taking it to a new level.

This idiot is still ticked off that the Americans turned him down for the Presidents Office. He’s trying to punish the United States and his followers don’t even realize they are being sucked in and making him millions.

Interfering with power plants is a felony. Good luck, Albore, hope to see you in jail.

McCain Suspends Campaign to Help With Bailout

McCain Suspends Campaign to Help With Bailout

Fox News

John McCain announced that he will suspend his presidential campaign on Thursday to return to Washington to help with bailout negotiations. He urged his opponent Barack Obama to do the same.

The Arizona senator also asked the Presidential Debate Commission to postpone Friday’s scheduled debate with Obama so that he can work on the financial crisis bailout plan now on Capitol Hill.

“America this week faces an historic crisis in our financial system. We must pass legislation to address this crisis. If we do not, credit will dry up, with devastating consequences for our economy. People will no longer be able to buy homes and their life savings will be at stake. Businesses will not have enough money to pay their employees. If we do not act, ever corner of our country will be impacted. We cannot allow this to happen,” McCain said.


I just checked my email and had this from the McCain / Palin campaign:

John McCain's Remarks on the Economic Crisis
New York, NY
Wednesday, September 24, 2008

"America this week faces an historic crisis in our financial system. We must pass legislation to address this crisis. If we do not, credit will dry up, with devastating consequences for our economy. People will no longer be able to buy homes and their life savings will be at stake. Businesses will not have enough money to pay their employees. If we do not act, ever corner of our country will be impacted. We cannot allow this to happen.
Last Friday, I laid out my proposal and I have since discussed my priorities and concerns with the bill the Administration has put forward. Senator Obama has expressed his priorities and concerns. This morning, I met with a group of economic advisers to talk about the proposal on the table and the steps that we should take going forward. I have also spoken with members of Congress to hear their perspective.
It has become clear that no consensus has developed to support the Administration's proposal. I do not believe that the plan on the table will pass as it currently stands, and we are running out of time.
Tomorrow morning, I will suspend my campaign and return to Washington after speaking at the Clinton Global Initiative. I have spoken to Senator Obama and informed him of my decision and have asked him to join me.
I am calling on the President to convene a meeting with the leadership from both houses of Congress, including Senator Obama and myself. It is time for both parties to come together to solve this problem.
We must meet as Americans, not as Democrats or Republicans, and we must meet until this crisis is resolved. I am directing my campaign to work with the Obama campaign and the commission on presidential debates to delay Friday night's debate until we have taken action to address this crisis.
I am confident that before the markets open on Monday we can achieve consensus on legislation that will stabilize our financial markets, protect taxpayers and homeowners, and earn the confidence of the American people. All we must do to achieve this is temporarily set politics aside, and I am committed to doing so.
Following September 11th, our national leaders came together at a time of crisis. We must show that kind of patriotism now. Americans across our country lament the fact that partisan divisions in Washington have prevented us from addressing our national challenges. Now is our chance to come together to prove that Washington is once again capable of leading this country. "


Wild Thing's comment............

Obama will debate by himself...with his teleprompter. Sorry I could not rssist.

This move is genius. Palin is doing all the campaigning anyway. McBrilliant is doing it again! I think right now all senators should be back at their posts in Washington.

It smacks of a gutsy move albeit a gamble. His campaign’s theme is country first. I think he should simply state, “I was not willing to lose a war to win a campaign and I am not willing to win a campaign to ignore the crisis that the economy is in.”

McCain is smart now.

Obama is in a box.

Blamed if he doesn’t go back to Congress as a “care-nothing about real Americans”

Blamed if he does go back to Congress because he would be following “McCain’s lead.

This smacks of statesmanship. He is putting his country before his own ambition. This is the old, veteran statesman and war hero reporting for duty to put his country first.

He is also forcing 0bama's hand to put a vote on the record on this issue, thus making it impossible for Zero to use it as a campaign issue.

This is widely considered to be the biggest financial crisis since 1929. McCain is making the right choice here, and returning to do what he was elected to do.

And, moreover, as a political statement the timing is impeccable. Obama cannot complain about the request to postpone the debate without showing himself to be unconcerned about the problem.

Now he's either going to have to suspend his own campaign and follow McCain back to DC (a great ad); or he will not suspend his campaign, and will open himself to criticism about his inability to identify real problems (an even better ad, because his response to the Russia/Georgia mess is of the same gormless type).

Just by doing the right thing, and acting like a grown-up, McCain will score big points against Obama, just as a happy side-effect.

It’s a direct challenge to Obama, not only on economic issues, but a challenge to the 3am phone call. McCain has picked up the phone and made decisions, will Obama pick it up or let it ring off the hook?

Obama is remaining on the campaign trail.

Haha! "You can take my beretta, Senator Obama, WHEN YOU PRY IT FROM MY COLD, DEAD HANDS!"


I think it is marvelous and right on!

Obama is the one that is a clear and PRESENT danger to the US.

Gaffe-a-day Joe Biden

Joe Biden is known for not holding back and, in an exclusive interview with Katie Couric, he talks candidly about the upcoming debate and the attack ad against McCain he thought was "terrible."

Biden, in his interview with Katie Couric, was copying off the wrong classmate’s exam again. “When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the princes of greed. He said, ‘look, here’s what happened.’” Two problems here: Television did not exist in 1929, and FDR was elected in 1932.

TRANSCRIPT from Rush Limbaugh show

Katie Couric talking to Joe Biden. She said, "Are you disappointed with the tone of the campaign and 'lipstick and the pig' stuff, some of the ads? You guys haven't been completely guilt free, making fun of John McCain's inability to use a computer."

BIDEN: I thought that was terrible.

COURIC: Why did you do it, then?

BIDEN: I didn't know we did it, and if I had anything to do with it, we'd have never done it, and I don't think Barack -- you know, I mean I just think that was, uh --

COURIC: Did Barack Obama approve that ad? He said he did, right?

BIDEN: Yeah, the answer is -- I -- I don't think anything's intentional about that. (rimshot) They were trying to make another point.

Then Biden caught himself because the commercial ended, "I'm Barack Obama, and I approved this message.

BIDEN: Part of what a leader does is to instill confidence, to demonstrate that he or she knows what they're talking about and communicates to people. If you listen to me and follow what I'm suggesting, we can fix this. (rimshot) Stock market crash, Franklin Roosevelt got on television and didn't just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed, he said, "Look, here's what happened."

From RUSH Limbaugh: There was no TV in 1929! Nobody was on TV in 1929, is the first gaffe. The second gaffe is that FDR wasn't president in 1929. Herbert Hoover was! Biden, the third gaffe is blowing a chance to blame Republicans for the Depression back in '29 for Herbert Hoover and saying, "Bush and McCain are the new Hoovers."

And then September 17th, this is five days ago, six days ago now in Ohio during a rope line visit, Senator Biden shaking hands and environmental activist Carolyn Auwaerter says, "Wind and solar are flourishing here in Ohio, so why are you supporting clean coal?"

RUSH: Okay, so an environmentalist comes up, "Why are you doing coal?" "We're not doing coal! Screw you! The ChiComs are doing coal. They're building two or three of these coal plants a week. They're killing people. They're polluting America! No more coal plants in the United States." Really? Hey, Joe, do you realize where a lot of coal miners in this country work. Do you realize what state they're in? It's West Virginia. It's called a state that you need? By the way, Obama has an ad that says he is for clean coal. Here it is.

OBAMA: I'm Barack Obama, and I approved this message.

MAN: (sappy music) Barack originates from Chicago, but he came to southern Illinois and seen the devastation and the loss of the jobs in this coal industry. War-shington, DC, is not listening to us. Barack understands us.

ANNOUNCER: In Illinois and the US Senate, Barack Obama helped lead the fight for clean coal, to protect our environment, and save good-paying American jobs.

RUSH: There's a graphic in this ad that says, "The Obama record: $200 million for clean coal." That ad has just been thrown under the bus by Joe Biden. Listen to sound bite number seven again. I think it's number seven. I put it away. Yep, you just heard the Obama ad on the record, $200 million for clean coal, clean energy, get rid of oil. We're going to go coal all the way, baby. And here's Biden, September 17th, with an environmentalist wacko shouting at him, why are you supporting clean coal?

BIDEN: We're not supporting clean coal! Guess what? China's building two every week, two dirty coal plants. And it's polluting the United States! It's causing people to die! The first guy to introduce a global warming bill was me, 22 years ago. The first guy to support solar energy is me, 26 years ago. Came out of Delaware. But guess what? China's going to burn 300 years of bad coal, once we figure out how to clean their coal up because it's going to ruin your lungs and there's nothing we can do about it. No coal plants here in America, build 'em, if they're going to build them over there, make 'em clean, because they're killing you!

RUSH: Now, put yourself in the Obama campaign headquarters. You're David Axelrod in there and you're writing Obama's next speech and you're writing the next answers to his next questions. And the phone rings, and someone says, "You know, Biden just said that you guys ran a really cruel ad on McCain; if he'd have had anything to do with it, he wouldn't have run it." "He said what?" "Yeah, that's what he said." Then the phone rings again: "Biden's out there saying no more clean coal plants in the United States when Obama has pledged $200 million to build more clean coal plants." (laughing) You see why I'm giving some of this stuff credence that the theory is have him just say all these off-the-wall, wacko things that they just can't abide anymore? We're not through. We're not through.

Yesterday in Baltimore at the National Guard Association conference, Senator Biden again.

BIDEN: If you want to know where Al-Qaeda lives, you want to know where Bin Laden is, come back to Afghanistan with me. (rimshot) Come back to the area where my helicopter was forced down, a three-star general and three United States senators at 10,500 feet in the middle of those mountains. I can tell you where they are.

RUSH: He's speaking to the National Guard. So he didn't say he was "shot down," but when you say that you're in a helicopter with a general and two other senators and you are "forced down" and you're in a military helicopter, what in the world does he want people to think? He wanted them to think it was mechanical or that they got shot down. So they went and asked John Kerry about this, the haughty John Kerry (by the way, he served in Vietnam) 'cause he was on the trip, and I think Chuck Hagel was there, too. I forget who the other senator was. And Kerry -- who was probably clueless about the context -- "Oh, snowstorm. Nobody predicted it. It came outta nowhere. We barely got down there, and had some troops come rescue us. It wasn't a bad place to be, but snowstorm that forced us down." Now, remember, this is the new snipper fire (sic), because Hillary was fired on in the green zone and I think Biden said he got fired on in the green zone, right? Hillary's dodged snipper fire in the green zone. (laughing) These guys, the transparent badge of courage.

We got one more. On the Today Show today, Matt Lauer talking to The Messiah, and Lauer says, "Look, as part of this whole economic picture, the AIG situation? On Tuesday night the Fed decided to bail 'em out, huge amount of money.

That morning, prior to the bailout, John McCain said that the federal government should not bail out AIG. You chastised him," and then Lauer added this. Cut nine.

LAUER: Three minutes later, in an interview with Meredith Vieira, Joe Biden, your running mate --

OBAMA: Right.

LAUER: -- was asked the exact same --

OBAMA: Right.

LAUER: -- question --

OBAMA: Yeah.

LAUER: Should the federal government bail out AIG?

OBAMA: Yeah. Yeah.

LAUER: And he said no.

OBAMA: Well, then I -- Yeah.

LAUER: The federal government should not bail out AIG.

OBAMA: And I think -- and I think -- and I think, uh, uh, that in that situation I think Joe should have waited as well.

RUSH: You know, if Sarah Palin had said half the things that Biden is saying, what do you think the media would be doing to her? What do you think they'd be doing to her? Folks, do you realize it may be time for a brand-new Operation Chaos? I don't know if we'd call it Operation Chaos, maybe call it Operation Save Joe Biden. The operation's objective would be to keep Biden on the ticket, if for no other reason than programming assistance for this program.

RUSH: We found another one. We don't have any audio on this, but we found another one. Now, keep in mind Biden told Katie Couric last night that he's gotta be careful about what he says 'cause Republicans are going to jump on every word. (laughing) So he's being careful! (laughing) This is Biden disciplined. This statement was made on September 20th, three days ago. It's an MSNBC story. He was in Castlewood, Virginia, and at a campaign event the question of gun control came up. Biden said, "Barack Obama...." (laughing) "Barack Obama ain't taking my shotguns, so don't buy that malarkey. If he tries to fool with my Beretta, he's got a problem." Did the Secret Service call Biden and say, "Did you just threaten a presidential candidate?" (laughing) Folks, folks, we have a new program, SOB: Save our Biden -- Operation Sling Blade. (laughing) I begged them! I begged them. (interruption) No, it's from MSNBC! I've got it right here. Biden: "Don't Fool with My Beretta," by Carrie Dann from NBC/NJ's Mike Memoli.

RUSH: I've got the link right here. I just read it off the computer, and it's The MSNBC First Read website, like ABC's The Note. All right. "Castlewood, VA -- Joe Biden took on an even folksier tone than usual as he campaigned in rural southwest Virginia this afternoon." This is September 20th, a Saturday. "Though his focus was again on economic issues, he deviated from script to talk about an issue not often discussed by the Democrats: guns.

The Delaware senator predicted that Republicans would seek to sway voters by threatening that Obama would take away guns. Biden, claiming to be a gun-owner himself who likes 'that little over and under,' called that notion bogus. 'Barack Obama ain't taking my shotguns, so don't buy that malarkey,' he said. 'If he tries to fool with my Beretta, he's got a problem.'

I wonder if the Secret Service called Biden and said, "Did you just threaten...?"

Anyway, at this little rural place in Virginia he decided, off the cuff, that he'd better get into gun control. Kerry went into someplace in Ohio or Indiana, Illinois, somewhere, "Is this where I get me a hunting license?"

They have this impression of people in rural areas, so Biden thought he would score some points by talking about gun control, and he said, "Barack Obama ain't taking my shotguns, so don't buy that malarkey. If Obama tries to fool with my Beretta, he's got a problem." Well, this jogged Mr. Snerdley's memory. We went back to the audio archives, July 23rd, 2007, Charleston, South Carolina, during what we all remember the CNN/YouTube debate where viewers sent in their questions and the on-the-spot editors at CNN chose the ones that would be used. And I'm sure that CNN chose this one because they wanted to make Republican rural voters look like hayseed hicks. The viewer in this case, Jared Townsend, and his question to all the candidates: "Tell me your position on gun control. As myself and other Americans really want to know if our babies are safe," and he held up his gun. "This is my baby, purchased under the 1994 gun ban." He held up his rifle, "Please tell me your views. Thank you." Anderson Cooper said, "Senator Biden, are you going to be able to keep his baby safe, meaning his guns?"

BIDEN: If that's his baby, he needs help. (rimshot) I don't know that he's mentally qualified to own that gun. I'm the guy that originally wrote the assault weapons ban. Look, we should be working with law enforcement right now to make sure that we protect people against people who don't -- are not capable of knowing what to do with a gun because they're either mentally imbalanced and/or because they have a criminal record.

RUSH: Okay, so a guy holds up his gun, loves his gun, "You gonna protect my baby?" And Biden, this guy's insane! He's not mentally qualified to own the gun. If that's his baby, he needs help. Saturday, Joe Biden: "Barack Obama ain't taking my shotguns, don't buy that malarkey. If he tries to fool with my Beretta, he's got a problem." Again, folks, a new Operation Chaos, it's called SOB, Save Our Biden, Operation Sling Blade. We need to keep this guy in the campaign.

Wild Thing's comment........

LMAO I love how he put this together.

That was a transcript from the Rush Limbaugh show. LMAO I love how Rush does so much homework for his show, he excells and this is one of the reasons. I love how he listed some of the latest gaffe's and how they came about.

Thank goodness Rush is on our side. And thank God Biden is NOT. hahahaha

I sure hope Obama does not change his VP. That would be horrible for many reasons.

If you look up the definition of “loose cannon” in the encyclopedia, iti would be Joe Biden's picture is in the entry.

5th Grader Suspended For Anti-Obama Shirt

5th Grader Suspended For Anti-Obama Shirt

My Fox Colorado

AURORA ( - An 11-year-old in Aurora says his first amendment rights are being trampled after he was suspended for wearing a homemade shirt that reads "Obama is a terrorist's best friend."

The fifth grader at Aurora Frontier K-8 School wore it on a day when students were asked to wear red, white and blue to show their patriotism.

The boy's father Dann Dalton describes himself as a "proud conservative" who has taken part in some controversial anti-abortion protests. Dalton says the school made a major mistake by suspending his son for wearing the shirt.

"It's the public school system," Dalton says. "Let's be honest, it's full of liberal loons."

According the the boy's father, the school district told the student, Daxx Dalton, that he had the choice of changing his shirt, turning his shirt inside out or being suspended.

Daxx chose suspension.

"They're taking away my right of freedom of speech," he says. "If I have the right to wear this shirt I'm going to use it. And if the only way to use it is get suspended, then I'm going to get suspended."

Daxx's dad agrees with him and is encouraging his son to stand his ground. "The facts are his rights were violated. Period."

Aurora Public Schools would not talk about the case but said the district "Respects a student's right to free speech, such as the right to wear specific clothing," but administrators say they review any situation that interrupts the learning environment.

Paperwork submitted by the school district says Daxx Dalton was not suspended for wearing the shirt, but for willful disobedience and defiance.

The boy's father says he intends to pursue a lawsuit against the district.


Now let's contrast this to the story above:

LANSDALE, Pa., Dec. 13, 2005

CBS news

A Pennsylvania student is off the hook after the American Civil Liberties Union defended his right to wear a political T-shirt to school.

Chris Schiano's T-shirt said "International Terrorist" and had a picture of President Bush.

A security guard at his high school north of Philadelphia told him to take it off. He refused.

Schiano says he's well versed in the First Amendment. He says he "knew right off they had no legal footing to stand on."

The principal says after hearing from the ACLU, school officials realized that the shirt, while potentially offensive, didn't violate the school's dress code. It had no references to sex, drugs, ethnic intimidation or explicit language.

Schiano says he's now wearing the shirt to school and no one's given him a hard time.

In February 2003, school officials ordered a 16-year-old in Michigan to either take off a T-shirt emblazoned with the words "International Terrorist" and a picture of President Bush or go home, saying they worried it would inflame passions at the school where a majority of students are Arab-American.

The student, Bretton Barber, chose to go home. He said he wore the shirt to express his anti-war position and for a class assignment in which he wrote a compare-contrast essay on Mr. Bush and Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.

Wild Thing's comment..............

Obama has been endorsed by Hamas, Hezbollah, Farrakhan, Ahmedinijad, and Castro. And he is a close associate of his (Ayers) bombed the Pentagon while a member of a terrorist organization.

The writing on the kid’s T-shirt is entirely accurate.

So do you think the ACLU will come stand up for this kids rights, like they did the second story?

Obama Tells Followers To Crash and Create Chaos at MCain Palin Events.

Obama is telling his followers to crash and create chaos at MCain Palin events.

Obama's website where they are instructing their followers to do such a thing. Also it is easier to read at the site due to size.

Protest the McCain/Palin appearance in Media, PA (Organizing)
Anti-McCain Protest: Media, PA Stop The Lies! Hosted by: Greater Media Nether Providence PA Team Where: Delaware County Courthouse When: Monday, Sept 22nd, 3:00 pm

The rally event Monday that McCain and Palin did had a new addition to it that was not seen much before.

The people who had been in attendance mentioned that there were Obama supporters there staging a protest. Some that attended mentioned that the Obama people there and they were loudly chanting Obama's name during McCain and Palin's speeches. Others reported that they were shouted at by the Obama people as they left the event venue.

A Democrat Committee Person from Franklin Township, PA named Mark Ungemach posted an "event" announcement on Barack Obama's campaign website for this protest.

Obama cannot claim to be innocent on this, because he did instruct his people to "to "get in their faces"!.

Democrats' 'Kill Drill' Bill ~ Remember This On Nov.4th !

Congressman Don Young urges the opening of ANWR and the development of American Energy Sources. His bill, HR 6107, the American Energy Independence and Price Reduction Act, would open ANWR and use the approximately $200 billion in federal revenue generated to develop Alternative Energy sources.

Rep Don Young Urges Producing American Energy & Opening ANWR

The one time H.R. 6107 got out of the Senate, President Bill Clinton vetoed it because it would take 10 years before it produced. That was 13 years ago.

Young tells the House, "your friends and allies are filing suits so that we cannot drill." Rep. Young's energy bill H.R. 6107 to open ANWR has passed the house floor 12 times. It won't get a vote this year.

This video is from last July of this year.

Update to today:

The Democrats' 'Kill Drill' Bill

September 23, 2008

Investor's Business Daily

Energy Policy: With nearly 70% of voters demanding more domestic oil, the Democratic Congress is about to sneak a new drilling ban into a must-pass government funding bill — while claiming it supports drilling.Energy Policy: With nearly 70% of voters demanding more domestic oil, the Democratic Congress is about to sneak a new drilling ban into a must-pass government funding bill — while claiming it supports drilling.

Earlier this month, Rasmussen Reports found that 69% of voters support offshore oil drilling. That's no wonder, with fuel prices still painfully high and widespread concerns that America is becoming dangerously dependent on oil-rich foreign nations with ties to Islamic terrorists in the Middle East and hostile regimes like that of leftist Hugo Chavez in Venezuela.

The do-nothing Democratic Congress may not have passed an appropriations bill all year long, but it's now in a position in which inaction would actually serve the public good.

At the end of this month, the quarter-century-long ban on oil and gas leasing on most of the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) expires. With 97% of our offshore lands sitting unleased, the United States is in the dubious position of being the only industrialized country in the world that restricts access to so much of its offshore resources.

Considering public outrage over high prices at the pump, you'd think the people's representatives would be eager to carry out the public will and let the outdated ban expire — especially since in the 21st century the exploration and extraction of oil is no longer the dirty, ecologically risky business it once was.

Wind, sun, corn, hydrogen — these forms of energy are obviously in our long-term future as substitutes for petroleum. But Democrats refuse to accept that the desperately needed remedy to our short-term and intermediate-term energy woes is more of our own oil and gas — now.

And so they are using the massive, end-of-the-fiscal-year "continuing resolution" to try to get Pelosi's "Kill Drill" legislation enacted into law. By attaching it to a must-pass budget measure, they hope to force President Bush to sign, convince voters that Democrats have "done something" about drilling, and thus neutralize the biggest political issue of the year for John McCain and congressional GOP candidates.

It won't wash. Pelosi's "Comprehensive American Energy Security and Consumer Protection Act" actually bans drilling in places where we know the oil and gas are. It prohibits drilling within 50 miles of our coasts.

The measure's provisions for utilizing oil shale reserves in Western states are tepid at best. The legislation does nothing to encourage more use of nuclear power. Yet it will raise oil prices by taxing oil companies to the hilt to pay for subsidies and tax breaks for research into green alternatives to oil that are too expensive and still at the drawing-board stage.

With Congress scheduled to take yet another recess later this week for final campaigning before Election Day, defeat of this latest attempt to pass a drilling-bill-that-isn't would likely mean the matter is being handed on to the next Congress — and the next president. That is to be fervently hoped for, because what Sen. Reid and Speaker Pelosi are trying to do is pretend they are responding to the people's demands for more domestic oil when they actually are doing the opposite.

The voters will have to elect a far different Congress this November to see a real drilling bill become law.

More on energy: :

September 23, 2008

Dems will give up the the moratorium on off-shore drilling. Starting on October 1, states will have no federal restrictions on oil production! They have surrendered! You can definitely thank the Republicans for staging protests and bringing the issue to the national spotlight!

"Democrats have decided to allow a quarter-century ban on drilling for oil off the Atlantic and Pacific coasts to expire next week, conceding defeat in an months-long battle with the White House and Republicans set off by $4 a gallon gasoline prices this summer.
Appropriations Committee Chairman David Obey, D-Wis., told reporters Tuesday that a provision continuing the moratorium will be dropped this year from a stopgap spending bill to keep the government running after Congress recesses for the election.
Republicans have made lifting the ban a key campaign issue after gasoline prices spiked this summer and public opinion turned in favor of more drilling. President Bush lifted an executive ban on offshore drilling in July. “If true, this capitulation by Democrats following months of Republican pressure is a big victory for Americans struggling with record gasoline prices,” said House GOP leader John Boehner of Ohio."

I just have to say I am a HUGE fan of Rep. John Boehner. I wish so much he was our Rep. here in Florida. That would be a dream come true. God bless the people in Ohio for having the brains to vote for this man.

I give him a lot of credit because he lead the way on fighting back at Pelosi and the rest of the democrats about drilling and our energy problem created BY THE DEMOCRATS!!!!!!

Here is a great sample of of his reaction when the dems ( Pelosi) tried to pull a fast one!!

Rev.Al Sharpton and His the “Not This Time” Tour

Sharpton: 'We will never have this opportunity again'

Final Call

We’ll never have this opportunity again,” said the Rev. Al Sharpton, taking to the streets for what appeared to be an emergency cross country tour in September.

He hopes to rejuvenate the Obama excitement that some say has waned since the Democratic National Convention last month.

“What we’ve got to tell people is what’s at stake; that we’re dealing now with the new unemployment. Unemployment is higher than it’s been in four years, we are seeing the education and health care of our people as worse than it ever was. We cannot afford to not vote,” Rev. Sharpton said in an interview with the NNPA News Service.
“On top of that, we’ve never been this close. As African Americans we’ve never been this close to a qualified African American who represents the right thing. If he didn’t represent the right thing and he wasn’t qualified, there wouldn’t be anything to be excited about. But, we will never have this opportunity again in our lifetime and we can’t flow with being complacent.”

Rev. Sharpton took that message on a bus tour campaigning for voter turnout in Black communities of key swing and battleground states—including Ohio, Missouri, Michigan, Florida, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina.

In North Carolina alone, more than a half million qualified Blacks are not registered to vote, Rev. Sharpton said.

“I think we could lose it. When you see 600,000 unregistered in North Carolina and when you look at about the same in Georgia, the amount of those voters registered and turning out could turn those states,” he said.

In America’s Electoral College system, the presidential candidate who gets the most votes in a state wins the state and electoral votes assigned to the state.

“We could, by not coming out, cause the electoral votes to go to McCain and he could become the next president,” said Rev. Sharpton.

Perhaps the best example of this was the fight over Florida’s 25 electoral votes in the 2000 election. Al Gore had more popular votes. But, with the Supreme Court’s decision to give George W. Bush the win in Florida, he took the presidency with more electoral votes.

Rev. Sharpton, calling his tour the “Not This Time” voter education and registration campaign, said his aim is also to eliminate voter fraud.

Going into the Democratic Convention, Sen. Obama was running well ahead of Sen. McCain.

Some polls showed him fluctuating between five-seven percentage points ahead of the GOP nominee. However, Sen. McCain’s nomination of vice presidential running mate Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, a charismatic speaker, added fire to his once dry campaign. Polls numbers remain extremely tight.

“I think that the dynamics of the campaign has changed and there needs to be a lot more of a grassroots effort. A lot of the excitement seems to have waned,” said Rev. Sharpton. “And I think that there must be some real efforts from the bottom up to energize the base and bring the base out.”

Rev. Sharpton said he will not get into personalities or partisanship on the road. Rather, he will mainly stick to a message about the issues as he travels through grassroots communities.

Yes Al you may never get another chance to elect a Marxist, race pimping, power hungry, part black man that throws his mom under the bus, limp wristed democrat, I sure pray you never get that chance!!!!

Anti-Iran Rally Turns Into Anti-Obama Rally

A woman holds a "Where is Sarah?" sign at an anti-Iran rally outside United Nations headquarters during the 63rd General Assembly in NYC. Activists from Jewish organizations demonstrated Monday against Iran at UN headquarters in New York

Anti-Iran Rally Turns Into Anti-Obama Rally (We Want Sarah!)

Jewish Groups Furious That Protest Against Ahmadinejad Was, At Times, A Pro-Palin, Bash-The-Dems Affair

Politics and diplomacy were not a good mix at Monday's protest rally against Iran at the United Nations.

Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin didn't participate in the "Stop Iran Now" rally and there were a lot of hard feelings about it.

It was a simple sign that read "We Want Sarah. Shame On The Rally Organizer."

Howard Webber from Brooklyn held it.

"As important an event as this is, you needed a unity of Democrats and Republicans to show Ahmadinejad that we're not going to accept a nuclear Iran."

Buddy Macy of Little Fells, N.J., felt much the same way.

"I'm so disappointed, upset," Macy said. "She would have brought 10,000-20,000 more supporters of Israel. People who were curious were stopped because of partisan action."

The brouhaha started after Clinton pulled out after she learned Palin was invited. Three organizations supporting the rally threatened to pull out unless Palin was disinvited. She was but organizers didn't stop there.

They were furious Monday about the political signs brought by some at the rally, like an anti-Obama sign that said, "Jews Against Obama & Ahmadinejad."

"I am upset by the sign because this is a non-political event," said Janice Shorenstein, president of the Jewish Community Relations Council. "We are here today to cry out against Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, not political. American elections are not part of this event."

Congressman Anthony Wiener disagreed.

"I think this is a classic political event in the best sense of the word. Politicians from all corners come here to speak out against Iran," Wiener said. "I think it would have been fine for Sarah to speak. We just needed someone of equal stature from the Obama campaign to speak."

The question is what are the political repercussions not to have politicians speak at the rally?

"Republicans benefitted more than the Democrats did," political consultant Hank Sheinkopf said. "Why? Sarah Palin wanted to be there, but it looks like she was purposely told not to and rejected. It gives her standing, particularly among those people who are thinking about voting Republican anyway."

Wild Thing's comment..........

"Jewish Groups Furious That Protest Against Ahmadinejad Was, At Times, A Pro-Palin, Bash-The-Dems Affair"\

LOL tuff! The only Jewish people that would be THAT ticked off about Sarah Palin's name being mentioned would be Democrats. Democrats that voted for Kerry. Gore, Bill Clinton and now will be voting for Obama.

Sarah Palin has the Israel Flag in her office in Alaska, does Obam have a flag of Israel anywhere? NO he has Che poster on one of his campaign offices walls. He wants to sit down with the President of Iran and have a touchie feelie meeting of how wonderful the Islam calll to prayer is to him. The Obama campaign supports Ahmedinejad, the Hams and the PLO.

There are amazing and wonderful Jewish people and they are also conservatives and are excited about Palin and were upset that she was disinvited to this rally at the UN. Those that demanded to disinvite Palin, every one of them was a Democrat for Obama. And they disgust me !

"this is a non-political event," said Janice Shorenstein, president of the Jewish Community Relations Council."

This woman is an idiot!!! Oh Ms. Shorenstein, politics have everything to do with the support of Israel. Obama is not and will ne ver be on the side of Israel! Janice Shorenstein thinks putting her head under the covers will make the bogeyman go away. Sadly, there is a pattern here.


BIDEN TOLD ISRAEL: Joe Biden, told "senior Israeli officials behind closed doors that the Jewish state will have to reconcile itself to a nuclear Iran."

Liberals Say If Obama Loses It Will Be Due To Democrat White Racism

Rhett Butler to theh Liberals! heh heh .........................

Liberals Warnings About Obama Loss May Prove Self-Fulfilling


by Dennis Prager

If Barack Obama loses the 2008 election, liberal hell will break loose.

Seven weeks before the 2008 presidential election, liberals are warning America that if Barack Obama loses, it is because Americans are racist. Of course, that this means that Democrats (and independents) are racist, since Republicans will vote Republican regardless of the race of the Democrat, is an irony apparently lost on the Democrats making these charges.

That an Obama loss will be due to racism is becoming as normative a liberal belief as “Bush Lied, People Died,” a belief has generated intense rage among many liberals. But “Obama lost because of white racism” will be even more enraging. Rage over the Iraq War has largely focused on President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney. But if Obama loses, liberal rage will focus on millions of fellow Americans and on American society.

And it could become a rage the likes of which America has not seen in a long time, if ever. It will first and foremost come from within black America. The deep emotional connection that nearly every black American has to an Obama victory is difficult for even empathetic non-blacks to measure. A major evangelical pastor told me that even evangelical black pastors who share every conservative value with white evangelical pastors, including pro-life views on abortion, will vote for Obama. They feel their very dignity is on the line.

That is why the growing chorus -- already nearing unanimity -- of liberal commentators and politicians ascribing an Obama loss to American racism is so dangerous.

Andrew Sullivan of (set ital) The Atlantic: (end ital) “White racism means that Obama needs more than a small but clear lead to win.”

Jack Cafferty of CNN: “The polls remain close. Doesn’t make sense … unless it’s race.”

Jacob Weisberg of (set ital) Newsweek and Slate: (end ital) “The reason Obama isn't ahead right now is … the color of his skin. … If Obama loses, our children will grow up thinking of equal opportunity as a myth.”

Nicholas D. Kristof of (set ital) New York Times: (end ital) “Religious prejudice (against Obama) is becoming a proxy for racial prejudice.”

Gerald W. McEntee, president of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, in a speech to union workers: “Are you going to give up your house and your job and your children's futures because he's black?”

Similar comments have been made by Kansas’s Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, a Democrat, and by writers in (set ital) Time (end ital) magazine. And according to The Associated Press: “A poll conducted by The Associated Press and Yahoo News, in conjunction with Stanford University, revealed that a fairly significant percentage of Democrats and independents may not vote for Sen. Barack Obama because of his race.” If you read the poll, it does not in fact suggest this conclusion. The pollsters assert that any person with any negative view of black life means that the person is racist and means that he would not vote for Obama. Both conclusions are unwarranted. But “Obama will lose because of racism” is how the poll takers and the media spin it.

Why do liberals believe that if Obama loses it will be due to white racism?

One reason is the liberal elite’s contempt for white Americans with less education -- even if they are Democrats.

A second reason is that it is inconceivable to most liberals that an Obama loss -- especially a narrow one -- will be due to Obama’s liberal views or inexperience or to admiration for John McCain.

The third reason is that the further left you go, the more insular you get. Americans on the left tend to talk only to one another; study only under left-wing teachers; and read only fellow leftists. That is why it is a shock to so many liberals when a Republican wins a national election -- where do all these Republican voters come from? And that in turn explains why liberals ascribe Republican presidential victories to unfair election tactics (“Swift-boating” is the liberals’ reason for the 2004 Republican victory). In any fair election, Americans will see the left’s light.

If Obama loses, it will not be deemed plausible that Americans have again rejected a liberal candidate, indeed the one with the most liberal voting record in the U.S. Senate. Liberals will explain an Obama defeat as another nefarious Republican victory. Combining contempt for many rural and middle-class white Americans with a longstanding belief in the inevitability of a Democratic victory in 2008 (after all, everyone they talk to despises the Republicans and believes Republicans have led the country to ruin), there will be only one reason Obama did not win -- white racism.

One executive at a black radio station told me when I interviewed him on my radio show at the Democratic National Convention that he could easily see riots if Obama loses a closely contested election. Interestingly, he said he thought blacks would be far more accepting of a big McCain victory.

I pray he is wrong on the first point. But it does seem that liberals are continuing to do whatever they can to increase anger at America, or at least at “white America.” For 40 years, liberals have described the most open and tolerant society on earth as racist and xenophobic. If Barack Obama loses, the results of this liberal depiction of America may become frighteningly apparent.


And there is also this......................

AP's Racist Poll: If Obama Loses It's Because He's Black


Are you getting tired of the mainstream media meme that if you're white and you don't vote for Barack Obama it's because you're a racist? Or that if John McCain wins, it's because he's white and Obama isn't?

Well, on Saturday, the Associated Press and Yahoo News released results of a new poll, and the major take by AP writers Ron Fournier and Trevor Thompson was that if Obama loses, it's because of "[d]eep-seated racial misgivings" held by "one-third of white Democrats."

Sadly, like most polls this year claiming to deal with how racism is impacting this campaign, no questions were asked to determine how deep-seated racial misgivings of black Democrats are guiding their choice for president

Deep-seated racial misgivings could cost Barack Obama the White House if the election is close, according to an AP-Yahoo News poll that found one-third of white Democrats harbor negative views toward blacks — many calling them "lazy," "violent," responsible for their own troubles.

More than a third of all white Democrats and independents — voters Obama can't win the White House without — agreed with at least one negative adjective about blacks, according to the survey, and they are significantly less likely to vote for Obama than those who don't have such views.

Such numbers are a harsh dose of reality in a campaign for the history books.

I’m not too concerned about the Lib elite inciting blacks to riot if they loose. Nothing I can do about that — if the blacks riot, they riot.

But what DOES concern me is that we need to win this by a healthy margin, or the Libs are going to flood close states with thug lawyers to try to tie this up in court, with the goal to steal the election.

This is a pile of BS about it being a black thing. The Democrats have proved this with Clarence Thomas, Michael Steele and others that are black and they could have cared less. They HATED these blacks because of what they stand for, what their beliefs are and their high charater. What the left did to these two fine men is unforgivable!!!

Will blacks riot if Obama does not win? There may be some, but it's really going to backfire on those perpetrating the violence; I recall the burning and looting of South Central after the Rodney King verdict, just how stupid and crazy Blacks were to destroy businesses and homes owned by other minorities simply because they didn't want to risk getting arrested and/or shot at in the San Fernando and Simi Valley's, or Beverly HIlls, Pacific Palisades anywhere else that was not heavily a black area. I also recall Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) encouraging the rage.

The various law enforcement agencies around the country (especially those in the major Blue cities) are probably already planning to be prepared to keep it to a minimum.

Once again with all of this and I bet we hear more of it before Nov. 4th, is that this is a form of a threat to anyone that will not vote for their anti-American B. Hussein Obama.

....Thank you Mark for the article.

Tancredo Get's It! We Need Leaders Like This!

Jihad Prevention Act Proposed to Protect US Courts

right side news

Tancredo Proposes Anti-Sharia Measure in Wake of U.K. Certification of Islamic Courts

Friday, 19 September 2008

Tancredo's website

“Jihad Prevention Act” would deny U.S. visas to advocates of ‘Sharia’ law, expel Islamists already here.


Amid disturbing revelations that the verdicts of Islamic Sharia courts are now legally binding in civil cases in the United Kingdom, U.S. Representative Tom Tancredo (R-Littleton) moved quickly today to introduce legislation designed to protect the United States from a similar fate.

According to recent news reports, a new network of Sharia courts in a half-dozen major cities in the U.K. have been empowered under British law to adjudicate a wide variety of legal cases ranging from divorces and financial disputes to those involving domestic violence.

“This is a case where truth is truly stranger than fiction,” said Tancredo. “Today the British people are learning a hard lesson about the consequences of massive, unrestricted immigration.”

Sharia law, favored by Muslim extremists around the world, often calls for brutal punishment – such as the stoning of women who are accused of adultery or have children out of wedlock, cutting off the hands of petty thieves and lashings for the casual consumption of alcohol. Under Sharia law, a woman is often required to provide numerous witnesses to prove rape allegations against an assailant – a near impossible task.

“When you have an immigration policy that allows for the importation of millions of radical Muslims, you are also importing their radical ideology – an ideology that is fundamentally hostile to the foundations of western democracy – such as gender equality, pluralism, and individual liberty,” said Tancredo. “The best way to safeguard America against the importation of the destructive effects of this poisonous ideology is to prevent its purveyors from coming here in the first place.”

Tancredo’s bill, dubbed the “Jihad Prevention Act,” would bar the entry of foreign nationals who advocate Sharia law. In addition, the legislation would make the advocacy of Sharia law by radical Muslims already in the United States a deportable offense.

Tancredo pointed to the results of a recent poll conducted by the Centre for Social Cohesion as evidence that the U.S. should act to prevent the situation in Great Britain from replicating itself here in the United States. The poll found that some 40 percent of Muslim students in the United Kingdom support the introduction of Sharia law there, and 33 percent support the imposition of an Islamic Sharia-based government worldwide.

“We need to send a clear message that the only law we recognize here in America is the U.S. Constitution and the laws passed by our democratically elected representatives,” concluded Tancredo. “If you aren’t comfortable with that concept, you aren’t welcome in the United States.”

Wild Thing's comment..........

Yep he gets it and he takes a lot of flack for doing so, yet, he keeps at it. I wish he would stay in office. I heard this is Tancredo’s last year in office...he’s quitting. Duncan Hunter is rather strong on the same issues as well.

Like every other leftist ideal it leads to nothing but the destruction of our civilization as we know it. And if they do not do something now, not a few years from now that would be too late. Our politicians in Washington are too worried about being PC with the Muslims and this will destroy us and our country.

According to some of the CAIR-sponsored legislation now being proposed in Congress, Tom Tancredo’s words would constitute a defamation of Islam and be a form of hate speech.

....Thank you Tom for sending this to me.

If It Was Up to Obama, This Woman Would be Dead

Gianna Jessen of on Hannity & Colmes

If It Was Up to Obama, This Woman Would be Dead


No, I’m not talking about Sarah Palin, I’m talking about Gianna Jessen.

If it was up to the abominable Obama, the to-be-aborted little baby, Gianna Jessen, would have been turned into worm dirt 31 years ago. Thankfully, Mr. Change and Mr. Hope wasn’t around back then to lay his liberal legislative death-dealing pen to Ms. Jessen’s fate—and the world is a better place for it.

So, who is Gianna Jessen?

Gianna is an abortion survivor. Yep, she kicked death’s butt and survived against all odds. Her medical records state that she was “born during a saline abortion,” and if Barack Obama would have had his way, she wouldn’t be here.

Barack Obama voted four times against affording these “born alives” their most basic human right. Chilling, eh? How progressive of you, liberals. Hitler would be proud, and I’m sure Satan is just giddy with your creative ways to slay that inconvenient little baby even if it survives your initial assault.

Jessen, with a Pit Bull spirit, survived being burned alive in saline solution for eighteen hours. Eighteen hours, ladies and gents! FYI: This is not the same saline solution you use to clean your contacts but a lethal cocktail of death intended to cook the unborn kid from the inside out.

Weighing in at 2 lbs at birth with cerebral palsy (thanks to the effects of the witch’s brew she stewed in), the gloomy doctors said little Gianna would never be able to hold up her head, sit up, crawl or walk.

God had different plans.

Not only did she hold her head up, sit, crawl and walk, but she has run in two twenty-six mile marathons and has spoken all over the world, on TV, in churches and on college campuses about the power of God and the sanctity of life. Put that in your stupid pipe and smoke it, all-wise and all-knowing doctors.

Liberals love being painted as the defender of the underdog. Yeah, if you feel like you are being abused, oppressed, preyed upon, neglected, entitled to something or endangered in any way . . . do not fear! The Dems are here! Their protection extends not only to the human victim, but also to the translucent hair lice, the gargling nut warbler, a warming globe, a rare venereal crab, and a whooping crane’s egg.

Yep, the liberals will ramp up to Mach2, set their hair on fire, and fight, yell, picket, protest and blog their fingers bloody for animal rights and for your rights—that is unless, of course, you’re an unborn child.

It is with the unborn baby that the “protectors of the weak” morph into the party that wreaks havoc upon the truly helpless. It’s interesting to see misty-eyed liberals go quasi-Talibanic for the little animal while they have absolutely no qualms whatsoever endorsing the snuffing out of the life of a tiny unborn human.

One of the reasons the barbaric left uses to convince themselves that they’re right on the issue of killing that inconvenient “little bugger” (as one of their own calls it) is that it is not yet a person.

Something that is really wrecking the “protectors of the weak” BS campaign of killing unborn kids, however, is ultrasound imagery (Oops. Didn’t see that coming, now did you?). These pics and videos are screwing up things for the pro-choicers. Back in the day when they were selling us on the “fetal blob” stuff, all we had at our disposal to contradict their nonsense was common sense and a very grainy 2D sonogram.

With the use of ultrasound imaging increasing daily, how a person can say that an unborn baby is not yet a person and can be killed at Mommy Dearest’s discretion is barbarically beyond me. I guess the left and the pink conservatives callous their hearts to the unborn by rejecting a proposition central to Judeo-Christian thought regarding life and death: namely, that human life (beginning at conception and lasting until the person naturally croaks) is intrinsically good and thus sacred—not just instrumentally good.

In contrast with the secular “elite,” the “stupid,” “non-elite” and “archaic” Judeo-Christian constituency believes that all people—from the embryo to the elderly, including severely developmentally disabled, people in comas and everyone in between—have dignity and value. As Robert George said, “Their significance is not based upon what they can do, or how they make us feel or whether or not we approve of their quality of life, but principally because they live.”

And yet, these secular barbaric “tools” see human beings as tools; and if they don’t somehow fit instrumentally within the secularists’ Darwinian, utilitarian utopia, they get tagged as “inconvenient” and are relegated to the “very expendable” list. That’s why abortion is no big deal, and neither is taking the life of a so-called defective child, or suicide, or “mercy killing” a helpless senior. But God help you if you should ever run a boat’s prop over a manatee’s back! They’ll get pissed!

Not only does Obama’s Party of Death (as Ramesh Ponnuru calls the libtards) advocate the death of the unborn and the inconvenient, but they also want your tax dollars to pay for their death wishes, for all parents to butt out of their teenage daughter’s abortion plans, and for the US to continue to stay left of Europe when it comes to abortion on demand. Consider all the above when you cast your vote in November, those of you on the left and the right who cherish the unborn more than a sea cow.

For all the 411 on Gianna Jessen and what she’s up to, go to Send her money, watch her videos, play her radio spots and help her wake our nation up to Barack’s barbaric beliefs.

Wild Thing's comment........

Gianna Jessen is tangible, irrefutable proof of the viability and value of human life, both before and after birth (what’s the difference between a baby one day, week, month before being born and one minute after?). She stands as a stark reminder to the left of what abortion really is, and this enrages them.

There is also this at WND:

Obama ad goes to war with abortion survivor
Video slams woman for ‘despicable lie’


In the increasing flurry of this election season’s negative political ads, the Barack Obama campaign produced a TV commercial that not only attacks Republican rival John McCain, but also takes aim at an unusual target: a 31-year-old woman who was born alive after her mother’s botched abortion.

Obama’s commercial predictably takes shots at the GOP campaign, calling McCain’s ads “the sleaziest ever, truly vile.” But when the screen shows clips of abortion survivor Gianna Jessen and the ad she made asking Obama to reverse his stance on born alive infant protection legislation, the Obama ad calls Jessen’s appeal “a despicable lie.”

Here is Obama's ad

What's Obama's problem with free speech?

What's Obama's problem with free speech?

This story appeared in the Antelope Valley Press

Sunday, September 21, 2008

We're newspaper people, so you won't be surprised to learn that we hold the First Amendment dear. We value the freedom of expression.

So when word exploded on the national scene that Gov. Sarah Palin was a "book banner," well, by golly, we paid attention. Can't have smalltown mayors or anyone else going around banning Harry Potter.

Turns out Palin never banned any books. It was all Internet nonsense from people suffering from PDS - Palin Derangement Syndrome. The Harry Potter books Palin was supposed to have banned hadn't even been published yet when she was mayor of Wasilla, Alaska.

But it turns out there is a candidate in the presidential field who actually has tried to stifle free speech. His name is Barack Obama.

Right about the same time those false and defamatory Palin messages were filling e-mail boxes around the nation, Obama was trying to silence a conservative writer named Stanley Kurtz, who was investigating the Democratic senator's ties to William Ayers.

Ayers is a former member of the domestic terrorist group, the Weathermen. He spent several years on the FBI's Most Wanted list. Obama often points out that Ayers' radical activities - the group bombed the Pentagon and the Capitol, you know, little things like that - took place when he, Obama, was just 8 years old.

That is true, but Ayers has never repented and, in fact, in 2001 said that he regretted not having done more.

All of that aside, how many of you make friends with people who've been on the FBI's Most Wanted list?

In the 1980s, Ayers and Obama were colleagues in something called the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, which was supposed to improve Chicago's education system but can offer no evidence of having done so, $100 million later.

Writer Stanley Kurtz - unlike, it seems, anyone else in the national press - was curious about exactly what this group did, how it spent its money and just how close Obama was to the terrorist Ayers.

Legitimate questions, we'd say. To whom did they give grants? What grant applications were rejected? What, if anything, did the group accomplish?

Obama was the director of this project, his sole executive experience. Don't voters have a right to know how he did?

The Chicago Annenberg Project's papers were on file at the University of Illinois Library. Stanley Kurtz made an appointment to see the papers, but mysteriously, that appointment was suddenly canceled. Permanently.

Through Freedom of Information requests, the papers were finally released, and Kurtz and others are culling them.

We have no idea whether Obama or his campaign had anything to do with the sudden revocation of Kurtz's permission to see the files. But we do know what happened when Kurtz was scheduled to go on WGN radio in Chicago to talk about it.

When the station sought an Obama campaign spokesperson to give the other side, the Obama campaign declined.

The Obama campaign then put out an "action alert" to all the supporters on its e-mail list. They called on supporters to flood the station with phone calls. "Tell WGN that by providing Kurtz with air time, they are legitimizing baseless attacks from a smear-merchant and lowering the standards of political discourse."

The Obama campaign lied to its supporters, as well, claiming they had no chance to rebut the claims when, in fact, they'd been invited on.

The dutiful Obama supporters did as asked. The radio host, Alan Rosenberg, asked one caller, a young woman, to refute what Kurtz was saying rather than just toss insults and say that Kurtz should not even be on.

The young woman admitted that she didn't know anything about the affair and was just calling in because Obama told her to.

Failing to keep Kurtz off the air, the Obama people sought to turn the show into a circus by encouraging callers to, rather than ask questions and engage the guest, simply say that he shouldn't be on and that the interview should be stopped.

Ironically, WGN is, according to Chicago insiders, largely a liberal station, with most of its hosts openly supporting Obama.

Even the liberal Los Angeles Times called the Obama campaign's move "a surprising attempt to stifle broadcast criticism of its candidate."

Well, it's only surprising if you don't see through Barack Obama as a candidate who says one thing and does another. If this attempt at suppressing free speech is what Obama does as a candidate, just think what he might do as president.

Wild Thing's comment.............

Obama’s a commie rat. Commie rats don’t like free speech.

What's Obama's problem with free speech?

Answer: With free speech people are allowed to ask questions.

Obama supports HIS free speech. The proletariat is to be silent and listen to his wisdom!! ( YUK! )

The Size of Palin's Crowd Of 60,000 In The Villages Causes Global Warming ~ heh heh

Look how it looks like the baby Trig is saying his Mom is #1 , I love it. Arriving in Orlando on Friday , the Palin family spent Saturday at Disney World. Before Sarah's speaking at the rally on Sunday afternoon.

There was a bi-plane flying in circles over the site carrying a banner that said, "The South is Palin Country".


Mike Tucker, a local fire marshal, estimated 60,000 And this came with such short notice, they only knew she would be able to do this rallly when the RNC in Florida was notified on Thursday...........unlike “Ceaser’s Roman forum spectacle”.


Joining Palin at the sun-scorched rally was members of her family, including husband Todd Palin; daughters Piper and Willow and son Trig.

Piper Palin started it off by saying, "Thank you for letting us be here."

Huge big screens for those who won’t be able to get inside the gates.


Please CLICK photo to enlarge

Palin draws crowd of 60,000 in The Villages

news ....for complete article

Tens of thousands inched along roads into the picturesque town square of the complex, where they stood in sweltering heat for about four hours . Many Military Veterans were there and the crowd was all ages, of young and senior citizens.
"Sa-Rah! Sa-Rah!" they chanted at every mention of her name, applauding loudly and waiving tiny American flags that were distributed -- along with free water bottles -- by local volunteers. The fire chief estimated the crowd at 60,000.
Admiring throngs mobbed the Palin family's arrival and departure, snapping souvenir pictures. Autograph seekers thrust campaign signs, caps with the McCain-Palin logo and copies of magazines with her face on their covers, and the Palins responded warmly.
In a theme Palin would pound home, GOP Chairman Jim Greer Greer said Obama and his running mate, Delaware Sen. Joe Biden, have records of voting for higher taxes and have said on the campaign trail that they would increase regulation of financial markets.
"John MCain and I are going to take our case for reform to every voter in every background and every party, or no party at all," said Palin. "We're going to Washington to shake things up."
She said "John McCain warned Congress that we needed to do something before these problems became a crisis," but that Washington -- including Obama and Biden -- did not act for months as financial giants teetered and toppled.
"Americans are caught in kind of a perfect storm between high taxes, high gas prices, greed on Wall Street and a shortage of courage in Washington," she said. "But we need new leadership in Washington -- we need serious reform on Wall Street."
Palin, whose son shipped out for Iraq this month, made a point of asking veterans and military members in the crowd to raise their hands for a round of applause.
Then she recalled that McCain took an early, unpopular stance in support of the Iraq troop surge, a policy shift now widely credited with stabilizing Iraq. "That's the kind of man I want as commander in chief," she shouted, as applause and whoops rose in the town square. "John McCain is the only great man in this race."


From CNN:

Though the audience was one of the Palin’s largest to date, the actual size of the crowd could not be verified. According Mike Tucker, the fire chief of The Villages who was made available to the press by the McCain campaign, 60,000 people crammed into the streets to see Palin speak.
“There were people down the side streets, people down in the parking areas, people who couldn't quite make it around to the main areas,” Tucker said, adding that many people were let into the rally without tickets, making the crowd count impossible to verify.
The enthusiastic crowd welcomed Palin with shouts of “USA!,” and she chanted back along with them. As in many of her speeches, Palin promised that hard-working Americans will dig the country out of its economic woes, and she laced her remarks with fulsome praise for the nation's spirit.


And this from FOX News

Palin Draws Crowd of 60,000 in Florida

Sunday, September 21, 2008

Sarah Palin played it safe Sunday on her first trip as John McCain’s running mate to the battleground state of Florida, drawing a massive crowd of 60,000 people.

The visit drew a few contrasts between Palin and Obama running mate Joe Biden.

The largest was the crowd — an estimated 60,000 according to the fire chief. Some people had to wait in line about 90 minutes just to park their cars. Biden’s largest crowd during a visit earlier this month was about 2,000.

Tyler Deeds, 19, who made the drive from Auburndale 90 miles away and waited more than 5 hours to see Palin. “I couldn’t even tell you who the governor of Alaska was.”

But Deeds, who plans to enter the Navy soon, said he “tends to cling to my guns and religion” and he quickly grew excited about Palin’s candidacy.

Joan Guay, 81, dabbed bottled water on her arms as she waited for Palin in the broiling heat. She said she previously supported Democrat Hillary Clinton.

“This country needs a woman up there,” Guay said. “I like her background, I like her family. It’s a family that does things together. And I like her work in the community.”


After her Speech:

They are playing background music as she leaves and is signing autographs......

"Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I'm Yours) "music heh heh is playing

Willow Palin

Someone handed her a giant mockup of a lipstick tube to sign LOL Sarah just put her autograph on it!


My NOTES about the rally:

These crowds are reacting to the most exciting thing to hit politics since Ronald Reagan—they sense that she has the stuff of greatness and she does!

Some had to leave they could not take the heat, so there were people there with golf carts that were helping them get the 2-3 miles walk back to their cars.

No one would expect a VP candidate to draw 60,000 people to a political rally. So I am sure those that had to leave due to the heat can understand that this was planned on such short notice that no one had any idea the crowd would be so huge and the parking and walk so many miles from the event. I have not heard any complaints from those that were able to go.

It is unprecedented in American history.

Piper and Willow were both giving autographs. Piper’s was HUGE! ( giggle sooooo cute)

Sarah was dripping sweat as was everyone there. It was really insane to have this event outside in the middle of the afternoon. I’m told one hundred fifty people were carted off on stretchers from heat exhaustion.

There were women holding signs “Pumas for Palin”

Sarah said that Barack the Unabama merely voted ‘present’ on this week’s bill to save the financial institutions.
She quotes from McCain about the fiscal crisis. Going after Obama.

Obama voted present about 130 times; this week he voted present on the financial problems of today (paraphrased)

WOW! I love the line — This is about Obama’s poor judgement!

She’s nailing Obama on how he told people to get in their face. I am so glad she called Obama out on telling his minions to “get in their faces”!! She is leaving no stone unturned.

She used PAPER Notes...... not teleprompter!


Maybe if he (Obama) had been a Governor of an Energy Rich state he would get it!

That was a great double slam against obam! He don't know energy, and he ain't got no Governor-level experience.

Crowd yelling Sarah! Sarah again!

Sarah owns the Republican party now. It is her party. Our connection with her is a 20 megaton nuke in the world of politics. There is no substitute and no defense against it if you are on the other side.

Michelle Obama Coming to Pennsylvania

Michelle Obama coming to Pennsylvania

Chicago Tribune

Democratic campaign officials say the wife of presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama will be coming to Pennsylvania this week.

Officials say Michelle Obama will host a roundtable discussion with military spouses on Wednesday in Allentown. Later that afternoon, she is to attend a rally in Philadelphia.

The Obama-Biden campaign says Jill Biden, wife of vice presidential nominee Sen. Joe Biden, will also attend both events.

Wild Thing's comment........

What on earth can Michelle Obama tell military wives, hmmmmm let's see is she going to tell them how mean America is , and that there’s a hole in our national spirit which only the Obambi can fix.

A round table with military spouses — give me a break. Only spouses I can think of would be Reserve or Guard because there is not a military installation near Allentown thatI know of. There is Tobyhanna Army Depot but that is near Scranton. PA. Maybe the Reserve or Guard ???? I think there are two Reserve Units in Allentown.

There is Willow Grove, but has been scaled down to just the Naval Air Base and does not have on base housing. At least that is my understand.

Where ever they are from this is going to be a hand-picked group. 99% of military spouses support McCain and our troops.

I cannot stand this couple and their pandering to the military who they despise.

Despicable Democrats On SNL Stoop To New Low

NBC jokes: Todd Palin has sex with daughters

'Saturday Night Live' skit suggests Sarah's husband guilty of incest


A week after a high-profile send-up of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin on "Saturday Night Live," the NBC comedy show returned to making fun of the Alaskan governor in a skit where New York Times reporters sought to probe the possibility Palin's husband, Todd, was having sex with the couple's own daughters.

"What about the husband?" asked a Times reporter during a mock assignment meeting for the paper. "You know he's doing those daughters. I mean, come on. It's Alaska."

The assignment editor for the Times, portrayed by actor James Franco, responded: "He very well could be. Admittedly, there is no evidence of that, but on the other hand, there is no convincing evidence to the contrary. And these are just some of the lingering questions about Governor Palin."

The skit featured a photo of one reporter and an on-screen message that stated, "In 2009 [reporter] Howland Gwathmey Moss, V was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for his Times series on unproven, yet un-disproven incest in the Palin family. Sadly, he was to die 3 months later, run over by a snow machine, driven by a polar bear."

The final shot showed an image of a New York Times page, with headlines that included:

"While No Direct Evidence of Incest in Palin Family Emerges, Counter Evidence Remains Agonizingly Elusive" and "In a Small Alaska Town, Doubts Still Linger."

The sketch seemed to be designed to mock how out of touch journalists from the Big Apple are when it comes to their knowledge of Alaska, with left-leaning, Manhattan-dwelling reporters mistaking a snowmobile for a "baptizing machine," a crucifix and a NordicTrack exerciser in photographs held up for them.

Some viewers expressed outrage.

"It is time the Palin family brought out the big guns. They need to sue General Electric, NBC, 'Saturday Night Live,'" said Al Barrs of Bascom, Fla. "This is clearly criminal and defamation of character of an entire family and state. All the above needs to be taken to their knees big time once and for all."
"What if somebody did one with this kind of humor on Obama and his daughters?" asked Jim Cash of Chattanooga, Tenn. "What an uproar there would be. This line of humor is tasteless and moronic and about as low as they could go. There simply must be an uproar over this. We cannot let this just pass."

But others, such as Ana Jimenez, believe the episode was all in good fun, since the program is a comedy show.

"Anyone that watched Saturday's show and believed the skit in which it was suggested that there was incest in the Palin household needs to have [his] head examined," said Jimenez. "The purpose of the joke (tacky and crude as it was, I did not care for it at all by the way) was to show how out of touch journalists are – not an attack on the Palin household. Sheesh, get a grip!"

NBC's website for "Saturday Night Live" normally contains video clips of the show's comedy routines, but, interestingly, the clip of the incest sketch was never posted online.

Wild Thing's comment.................

I could care less if they were attempting in their skit to strike out at the MSM for their reporting. And USING Palin to do so. What they did was wrong!

SNL got their idea from KOS,DU, and various newspapers. And it is NOT funny! They could have done the same thing and just said Palin was a space alien or somerthing. They did not have to cross the line, that was uncallled for.

The skit can be described as employing satire as a COVER and a VEHICLE for getting a sick political message out to the public.

A carefully-drawn, vivid picture of incest within the Palin family was deftly designed to be IMBEDDED in the minds of the lumpen masses. It was carefully drawn.

Indeed, the "satire" of these types of skits are and will be laughed at uproariously and winked at because "I got it, the rest of the thin-skinned, easily offended dummies in this country don't get it at all. The sick portrayal is really not aimed at the Palin family, it's aimed at the liberal media"........(sure it is).

What's next, skits about sex with animals, cannabalism, gang rapes, the sex slave trade......each, of course, woven into a "satirical" skit about the Palin's?

Well, why not??? This incest one was such a hoot, why not a ditto next week??? We'll ostensibly aim it at the Washington Compost and Air America this time.

Whether the amoral Al Franken wrote this skit or not is irrelevant. SNL writers are undoubtedly all of the same stripe.....or they wouldn't be working there, or anywhere in their field. We have to realize that these leftist comedy writers are propagandists of the very same ilk as the serious Goebbel's types except they employ comedy as their vehicle for evil.

Between now and election, SNL's cleverly-disguised attacks will continue and intensify while the masses will yuk it up thinking they're being entertained, not brainwashed into voting for "change".

They could have used the jet sale, or the bridge as the subject. They were having “fun” by saying a really nasty thing about someone they don’t like. Incest is not a fit subject for humor, whatever the purported purpose, any more than rape would be. They were being vicious.

Thanks Mark for the article about this.

Hasselbeck May Leave "The View" For Friendlier Network

Elisabeth Hasselbeck May Leave "The View" For A Friendlier Network

New York, NY (CNS) - Elisabeth Hasselbeck may be saying goodbye to "The View" and hello to Fox News. Hasselbeck co-hosts ABC's "The View" along with Barbara Walters, Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg and Sherri Shepherd.

Hasselbeck has been a co-host on "The View" since 2003. Rumor has it, however, that Fox News is courting her to come over to their network. Hasselbeck, who has faced challenges on the talk show from Behar, and former co-host Rosie O'Donnell, is said to be considering it.

Hasselbeck, who graduated from Boston College and appeared on the CBS reality show "Survivor: Australian Outback," is conservative and that's where the problems arise. Fox is said to favor conservative Republicans so maybe it will be a better fit.

Celebrity News Service wouldn't be surprised to hear if Hasselbeck left "The View" in favor of more hospitable surroundings. An insider has reportedly said she is tired of defending herself in her current hosting job.

One thing Hasselbeck, a mother of two, has shown us from her days on "Survivor," is that the girl is tough. She has her opinions and sticks with them. Only time will tell if she finds a new television home, but that same insider has reported that Fox loves Hasselbeck and their ratings increase whenever she is on the show.

Heck Al-Jazeera would be a friendlier network for Elisabeth Hasselbeck than The View has been.

All I can say is it is about time. I never watch that demon fest. She needs to leave and let the demons be left to themselves. Without a “conservative” on the view, the View becomes that goofy left “radio” program that had Al Franken(was it air america?). And we know how long that lasted. Yep, the little cannibals will turn on each other without someone to pick on.

She's smart and conservative. Its ridiculous, that “The View” needed 3 left wingers vs her - that they increased it to 4 left wingers vs her.

Obama Is So Out Of His Element Running For President Example He Yells and Scares Elderly Iowa Voter

Annenberg’s, hardly a right-wing organization, has this to say about Obama’s new ad, in what they call Scaring Seniors:

A new Obama ad characterizes the “Bush-McCain privatization plan” as “cutting Social Security Benefits in half.”

This is a falsehood sure to frighten seniors who rely on their Social Security checks. In truth, McCain does not propose to cut those checks at all.

The ad refers to a Bush proposal from 2005 to hold down the growth of benefits for future retirees. Compared to the buying power of benefits paid to today’s retirees, that would not have been a “cut” for anybody. It would have been a “cut” of half only in relation to benefits now promised to retirees who have yet to be born. And for average workers, that “cut” in 2075 was projected by one of Obama’s own economic advisers to be 28 percent, not “half.”

The ad also says McCain voted “in favor of privatizing Social Security.” The term “privatizing” could give the wrong impression.

Obama's Social Security Whopper
He tells Social Security recipients their money would now be in the stock market under McCain's plan. False.
In Daytona Beach, Obama said that "if my opponent had his way, the millions of Floridians who rely on it would've had their Social Security tied up in the stock market this week." He referred to "elderly women" at risk of poverty, and said families would be scrambling to support "grandmothers and grandfathers."

That's not true.

Wild Thing's comment.............

This video is from last November but it still pertains today maybe even more since we getting close now to Nov. 4th and time to vote.

That is about as presidential as you could expect from a communist street agitator, oops, I mean “Community Organizer”.

The Unabama has neither the intellect nor temperament to be President. This is so typical of this POS Obama in a town hall venue. He is very uncomfortable which is one reason why he refused to do the town hall schedule with McCain. If you watch BOs body language he is constantly rubbing his forehead and his hand gestures turn into sweeping arm gestures.

This is how Obama talks to a typical white lady. Obama has issues. BIG ISSUES when it comes to white people!

My translation of his reply to the woman:

"If you think you're going to call my friends in the Middle East terrorists, and you think you know more about them than I do, and you think I'm not going to reveal a sampling of my wrath whenever anyone dares disagree with me, you've got another think coming."

Sarah Palin's Anti-Elitist Charm

Our Sister Sarah Palin's Anti-Elitist Charm

by Ralph Peters

New York Post

I KNOW Sarah Palin, and so does my wife.

Neither of us ever actually met the governor of Alaska, but we grew up with her - in the small-town America despised by the leftwing elite.

One gal-pal classmate of my wife's has even traveled from New York's Finger Lakes to Alaska to hunt moose with her husband. (Got one, too.) And no, Ms. Streisand, she isn't a redneck missing half her teeth - she's a lawyer.

The sneering elites and their mediacrat fellow travelers just don't get it: How on earth could anyone vote for someone who didn't attend an Ivy League school? And having more than 1.7 children marks any woman as a rube. (If Palin had any taste, her teenage daughter would've had a quiet abortion in a discreet facility.)

And what kind of retro-Barbie would stay happily married to her high-school sweetheart? Ugh. She even kills animals and eats them. (The meat and fish served in the upscale bistros patronized by Obama supporters appears by magic - it didn't really come from living things. . .)

Palin has that hick accent, too. And that busy-mom beehive 'do. Double ugh! Bet she hasn't even read Ian McEwan's latest novel and can't explain Frank Gehry's vision for a new architecture. She and her blue-collar (triple ugh!) husband don't even own a McMansion, let alone an inherited family compound on the Cape.

And she wants to be vice president?

The opinion-maker elites see Sarah Palin clearly every time they look up from another sneering article in The New Yorker: She's a country-bumpkin chumpette from a hick state with low latte availability. She's not one of them and never will be. That's the real disqualifier in this race.

Now let me tell you what those postmodern bigots with their multiple vacation homes and their disappointing trust-fund kids don't see:

Sarah Palin's one of us. She actually represents the American people.

When The New York Times, CNN, the NBC basket of basket cases and all the barking blog dogs insult Palin, they're insulting us. When they smear her, they're smearing every American who actually works for a living, who doesn't expect a handout, who doesn't have a full-time accountant to parse the family taxes, who believes in the Pledge of Allegiance and who thinks a church is more than just a tedious stop on daughter Emily's 100K wedding day.

Go ahead, faux feminists and Hollywood deep thinkers: Snicker at Sarah America's degree from the University of Idaho, but remember that most Americans didn't attend Harvard or Princeton as a legacy after daddy donated enough to buy his kid's way in.

Go ahead, campaign strategists: Mock Americans who go to church and actually pray. But you might want to run the Census numbers first.

And go right ahead: Dismiss all of us who remember how, on the first day of deer season, our high school classrooms were half empty (not a problem at Andover or Exeter).

That rube accent of Palin's? It's a howler. But she sounds a lot more like the rest of us than a Harvard man or a Smithie ever will.

Why does Sarah Palin energize all of us who don't belong to the gilded leftwing circle? Because she's us. We sat beside her in class. We hung out after school (might've even shared a backseat combat zone on prom night). And now she lives next door, raising her kids.

For the first time since Ronald Reagan, our last great president, we, the people, see a chance that one of us might have a voice in governing our country.

Speaking of Reagan (Eureka College, Illinois), every chief executive we've had since the Gipper snapped his final salute as president has had the imprimatur of an Ivy League university. And we've gone from bad to worse:

* George Herbert Walker Bush: Yale.

* William Jefferson Clinton: Georgetown, Oxford, Yale Law.

* George W. Bush: Yale and Harvard Business School.

The first lacked the sense to finish the job in Desert Storm; the second lacked the guts to go after al Qaeda when it was just a startup - and the third, well, let's just say he disappointed our low expectations.

Now we have the Ivy League elite's "he's not only like us but he's a minority and we're so wonderful to support him" candidate, Sen. Barack Obama (Columbia and Harvard Law).

Our country can't afford another one of these clowns. Harvard isn't the answer - Harvard's the problem.

So here's the message Palin is sending on behalf of the rest of us (the down-market masses Dems love at election time and ignore once the voting's done): The rule of the snobs is over. It's time to give one of us a chance to lead.

Sen. John McCain's one of us, too. He raised hell at Annapolis (quadruple ugh: military!), and he'll raise the right kind of hell in Washington.

McCain's so dumb he really loves his country.

Sarah Palin's dumb that way, too. How terribly unfashionable.

Wild Thing's comment............

Wonderful piece on how Sarah is one of us and the media and leftist elites just don't get it. Peters hits the nail squarely on the head regarding her popularity and how the elites sniff at her as they peer down their bony noses at us all.

"When they smear her, they're smearing every American who actually works for a living, "

Out of the park, Ralph Peters!

Go, Sarah. Show the world who really lives and works in the USA and keeps things humming along.

Pakistan Marriott Hotel Bombing Death Toll Rising

A massive bomb blast has hit the Marriott Hotel in Pakistan's capital, Islamabad, killing at least 40 people.


VIDEO's at website

The hotel's owner said the explosion occurred when a lorry, which was being checked by security staff and sniffer dogs blew up at the hotel's entrance.

The blast created a 20ft (6m) deep crater, and destroyed the entire front section of the hotel.

President Asif Ali Zardari condemned the attack and vowed to "continue to fight terrorism and extremism".

In a statement, he said: "Such dastardly acts cannot dent the government's commitment to fight this menace.

The explosion - a suspected suicide bombing - is thought to have been caused by more than a tonne of explosives and police are warning that the hotel could collapse.

The BBC's defence and security correspondent, Rob Watson, says that the attack bears the hallmarks of al-Qaeda, given the scale, the target and what would appear to be the careful political timing involved.

The attack came just hours after the newly elected President Zardari had given his first speech to MPs, vowing not to allow Pakistan's territory to be violated by terrorists or foreign powers fighting them.

Our correspondent says the attack is without doubt the most serious in the Pakistani capital to date and will spark fears about the country's stability in the face of a growing Islamist insurgency.

The Marriott is the most prestigious hotel in the capital, and is popular with foreigners and the Pakistani elite.

The hotel is located near government buildings and diplomatic missions, so security is tight, with guests and vehicles subject to checks.

The Marriott has previously been the target of militants. Last year a suicide bomber killed himself and one other in an attack at the hotel.

And this...........................

Senior CIA officers were target of Islamabad blast

Islamabad , Sept 20 (ANI): Several senior officers of Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) who are reported to be currently visiting Islamabad were the target of the blast at the Marriott Hotel which took place here tonight.

Well placed sources said that Marriott Hotel is usual hotel choice of the US officials and it seems that militants tipped off that certain high level US intelligence officers were currently staying at the hotel.

While no confirmation was available but Pakistan sources said it was clear that the explosion was aimed at specific targets based on a tip off.

Wild Thing's comment..........

Fox News channel was saying that it happened around dinnertime and many were in one of the five restaurants in the hotel ending their fast at the close of Ramadan.

Fox news reported that the president and prime minister of Pakistan were scheduled to have a dinner at the hotel at the same time....BUT THE PLANS WERE ALTERED AT THE 11th HOUR!! How Convenient!!

Bloomberg reports 3 American citizens killed

"``The suicide bomber tried to enter from the main gate and blew up his truck,'' Sadruddin Hashwani, who owns the Marriot, told reporters. ``Gas pipelines exploded because of the blast, causing the fire. Some people are still stuck, and we're trying to evacuate them.'' Close to Parliament
A Danish diplomat and three U.S. citizens were among the dead, Dawn News television reported, without saying where it got the information. Four Germans and six Saudi Arabian citizens were injured, the broadcaster said.
The hotel, which has been bombed at least once before, is in the city's high-security zone, less than a kilometer from the parliament building, the President's House and the diplomatic enclave.
The explosion shattered an adjacent government building, shredded trees and smashed more than 40 cars parked near the hotel. More than one ton (2,200 pounds) of explosives was used in the bomb, GEO TV reported, without saying where it got the information. "


US Marines may have been target of Marriot attack: Officials

Islamabad, Sept 20 (IANS) US Marines staying at the Marriott Hotel may have been the target of Saturday’s suicide attack that killed more than 60 people, security officials said.They said that about 30 Marines were staying at the hotel and were scheduled to leave for Afghanistan early Sunday morning.

One official said that the American security personnel were in Pakistan for the just-concluded visit by the Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Michael Mullen.

But another source said that they had come to Islamabad Friday and were scheduled to leave for Afghanistan on Sunday morning.

“We believe that they can have been the target of the suicide attack,” a senior security official told IANS. Otherwise, “we don’t find any other reason for such an attack”, he added.

The sources said that soon after the blast, US embassy officials reached the spot and were seen looking for the Marines who, according to the sources, were staying on the fourth floor of the hotel which was among the worst affected as the entire hotel turned into a blazing inferno with orange flames and thick smoke billowing out of its windows.

Besides the Marines, the staff of Saudi Airline and a number of foreigners was also staying at the Marriot.

Palin Will Meet With Karzai, Kissinger, Uribe

Fox News’ Hunter Ryan has learned that Sarah Palin’s meeting with Karzai will be on Tuesday. On the same day she has also scheduled separate meetings with Henry Kissinger and Colombian President Alvaro Uribe.

Palin will meet with Karzai, Kissinger, Uribe

Fox News

Sarah Palin will meet with Afghan President Hamid Karzai next week in New York, according to a senior advisor to Palin. The meeting coincides with the opening of the United Nations General Assembly.

Palin’s lack of foreign policy experience has been criticized since John McCain selected her as his running mate. The meeting with Karzai is an effort to boost Palin’s foreign policy credentials and show her ability to hob knob with foreign leaders.

We reported earlier in the week that Palin would travel to New York during the UN’s General Assembly, which meets every year and attracts leaders from all over the world.


Wild Thing's comment.............

I admire McCain in is his willingness to unselfishly groom Palin. He certainly must notice that Palin at times overshadows him, but instead of getting angry he gives her more responsibility and exposure. He wants the best I can see that, and he got that with Sarah Palin, and he wants to give her every chance as his VP.

I’m glad they’re paying attention to Uribe. Colombia is very important and I noticed today that Bush is trying to get Congress to go ahead with the trade bill for Colombia. The Dems hate Colombia because it’s the one success story in Latin America, getting rid of Marxist terrorists and building itself up again.

I think Sarah Palin is John McCain’s legacy !!!!

I would love to see her meet with Amanutjob with a shotgun in her hands!

I could see that...Sarah shaking his hand giving him that smile...How you doing Mr. amaahddii.....So, you have a problem with the U.S. (click)...did I tell you my Son is in the army (load)...Yah! Thats right the US OF A.....ARMY....YOU LIKE TO DANCE?.....SURE YOU DO....LET ME SEE YOU DANCE!

Joe Biden ~ "You need to work on your pecs"

Meanwhile, the Other No. 2 Keeps On Punching

New York Times


As the economy reels, Senator Joseph R. Biden Jr. — the Other Running Mate — has been absolutely butchering Senator John McCain across the Rust Belt this week. It is not clear who has noticed.

“John is so out of touch, he just has no idea,” charged Mr. Biden, the Democratic vice-presidential nominee, who called his “old, dear friend” someone who “just doesn’t think,” who is behaving in a repugnant manner and who is peddling “Republican garbage,” and malarkey.
The older woman who introduced him at a rally here called Mr. Biden’s Republican counterpart, Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska, a “bucket of fluff,” and he rewarded the woman as he took the microphone with an “I love you” and a gentle kiss on the head.
“If I sound angry, it’s because I am angry,” Mr. Biden told a few hundred people gathered at a high school football field. Yes, he sounds angry, yelling through his stump speeches, flailing his arms and telling a (supportive) member of the audience to “Shush up, will you?” (“I’m kidding,” he added, but did not sound it.)

But the reality for Mr. Biden is that while running mates are second-fiddlers by definition, the phenomenon of Ms. Palin has rendered him something of a fourth or fifth fiddle. It is not like last month, when reporters swarmed Mr. Biden’s Delaware home and delegates swooned at the Democratic convention. He is now trailed by just a few national reporters, and struggling to break through in a race marked by historic firsts, political celebrities and charismatic newcomers — none named Joe Biden.

The Obama campaign was hoping to reintroduce Mr. Biden this week as running mate attack dog. But his penchant for verbal rambling ensured that much of the attention he drew was unwanted: he said wealthy Americans had a “patriotic” duty to pay more taxes, a remark the McCain campaign mocked relentlessly.

Yet Joltin’ Joe has also become a fascinating Off Broadway spectacle in his own right. He is a distinctive blend of pit bull and odd duck whose weak filters make him capable of blurting out pretty much anything — “gaffes,” out-of-nowhere comments (pivoting midspeech to say:

“Excuse my back!” to people seated behind him), goofy asides (tapping a reporter’s chest and telling him, “You need to work on your pecs.”)

Mr. Biden’s role is red-meat serious: to pulverize Mr. McCain, lend foreign policy heft to Senator Barack Obama and be his campaign’s main ambassador to two at-risk constituencies: former supporters of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton and blue-collar Democrats. He speaks to working-class voters in the harsh language of their economic trials, and summons easy rage at ear-splitting volumes.

“John said that the economy can have a ‘psychological effect,’ ” Mr. Biden said at a twilight rally in Media, Pa., on Tuesday. “Let me tell you about the psychological effect,” he said, describing his family’s economic struggles when he was young. Mr. Biden might seem like an afterthought on the national airwaves, but he can clearly resonate close up.
“People got to wake up, because these guys in Washington are raping this country,” said Dave McLimans, a steelworker from Coatesville, Pa., who attended the rally in Media. “Joe Biden talks in a way that can wake people up.”

Mr. Biden’s venues are, in many cases, economically challenged areas of swing states. His crowds are up-and-down in number and enthusiasm — some loud and in the thousands, others sleepier and small. But his reviews are generally good from voters, some who came in unconvinced about Mr. Obama.

“Biden is a guy who I really believe, who really seems like he is going to help us out,” said Sheryl Kline, a loader for the United Parcel Service who attended a rally in Maumee, Ohio. “He sounds like someone who knows how we’re struggling.”

Despite his hard words, there is also a joy to Mr. Biden’s pursuit. On Monday, he walked into a Ford plant in Macomb County, Mich., jumped behind the wheel of a red Mustang convertible and let loose with a few satisfying vroom-vrooms of the engine.

“I know I’m not supposed to like muscle cars, but I like muscle cars,” Mr. Biden said as clusters of autoworkers whooped around him. “I tell you man, this is nice,” he said, giving a few extra revs of the engine for good measure, and his Senate cuff links clicked on the side of the car as he jumped out to more applause.
In an interview, he rejected any notion that his message was not being heard. “I just don’t get that, I don’t see any evidence of that,” he said in the back office of the Maumee Elks Lodge.
He barely mentions the Alaska governor in speeches; in the interview, he described her as “a very attractive political personality” who can “really deliver a political message.”

Mr. Biden, 65, has been part of the national political furniture for decades. Like most senators, he thought he could be president, and he made runs for the job twice. Then Mr. Obama picked him for a job he said he never wanted.

Mr. Biden retains his regal senatorial bearing even in gritty settings of the campaign trail. On Wednesday, he wore a pressed blue blazer with a hanky folded smartly into the breast pocket. His skin is perma-tanned, and his smile is shiny white. He has his own big entourage now — own bus, own plane. He conveys the giddy sense of a man who has won a political lottery, or been plucked from an elite purgatory.

In Mansfield, Ohio, on Thursday, Mr. Biden made an improvisational stop at a diner, shook a bunch of hands and walked out into the sun holding a vanilla ice cream cone. “I’m dripping here, man,” Mr. Biden said to a well-wisher as he headed across the street to a carousel.

“Am I too old to get on it?” he asked no one in particular, then headed back to his campaign bus.
“Anyone need a ride?” he asked some people standing nearby. “I’ve got a nice bus.”

Mr. Biden’s tone turns somber when he discusses Mr. McCain, a colleague of over two decades. The tenor of this campaign has tested a friendship that has been close even by Senate standards, where everyone claims to be “my good friend.”

“That guy I used to know, he’s gone,” Mr. Biden said of Mr. McCain at the campaign event in Maumee, shaking his head. “It literally saddens me,” added Mr. Biden, who tends to used the word “literally” about a dozen times per speech (literally).

Mr. Biden recalls that after Mr. McCain came under heavy attack from George W. Bush in the 2000 race for the Republican presidential nomination, he called Mr. McCain and offered to “go anywhere in the country and testify to his character.” Now, Mr. Biden asserts, Mr. McCain has embraced the same tactics he once criticized.

“I tried to talk to John,” Mr. Biden said in the interview. When both men were at Columbia University last week on the Sept. 11 anniversary, Mr. Biden had a staff member try to arrange a dressing-room visit with Mr. McCain. But Mr. Biden was told not to come, he said.
“I walked down anyway,” Mr. Biden said. “And who the hell is going to stop me?” Mr. McCain looked up and was “like, what is this about?” Mr. Biden said. Mr. McCain hugged Mr. Biden’s wife, Jill, and the two senators shared a quick handshake, but there was no time for any discussion.

Leaving the Elks Lodge in Maumee this week, Mr. Biden threw his arms around volunteers, posed for photos, and said he was flattered about the attention.

“Remember, no one decides who they’re going to vote for based on the vice president,” he said. “I mean that literally.”

Pathetic, Jealous and Hateful Sandra Bernhard

Sandra Bernhard apparently can't stand a woman that is Pro Life, has class and is prety and a good person.
But she is a commrade of B. Hussein Obama , you know that guy that is William Ayers friend.

Her vocabulary is limted so she uses words like words like “shiksa” and “goyische” - not to mention “whore” and “bitch” - and no one in the media expresses any negative judgment.

She also goes on ( not on this video) to say:

Sandra warns Sarah Palin...." not to come into Manhattan lest she get gang-raped by some of Sandra’s big black brothers."


God bless you Sarah and keep you safe!

Democrat Charles Rangel Insults ALL Disabled People

The Democratic Party is beneath contempt.

Charles Rangel in his sick attempt to insult Gov. Sarah Palin by saying she is disabled has not only insulted Palin but he has insulted every single disabled person!!!!!!

And also by saying this, he has insulted one of their own Franklin D. Roosevelt. He is too stupid to even realize that.

And this will be yet another of the left that will get away with this. That makes all of this even worse that there is such a horrible double standard and too few speak up and tell him his UGLY face.

Rangel should be removed from any position of power and run out of Congress. Then he should be prosecuted for tax evasion.

Rangel is the chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, but he has gone into default on his taxes. Of course, the Dems are being hypocritical and allowing him to keep his spot. Jay Leno makes fun of his inability to understand the law he himself writes:

The cocky arrogance of the left rears it’s ugly head over and over. These people must be defeated November 4!!!

Sarah and precious Trig.

I cried when I heard what Rangel said, I know he said what he did because he and the rest of them are afraid of Sarah and what she believes in, that she is a conservative and they hate conservatives especially. But I still cried, just a little, I hate when people are so mean like that to innocent people, children and babies. By saying what he did he lumped everyone that is disabled into that statement. I sure hope this comes back to bite him in the rear big time.

On the other way of looking at it, the more they keep reacting this way to Sarah Palin the more it shows to the world what kind of people are on the left. We all knew it already, but it shows those that have had their head in the sand something they chose to ignore for a long time. The left is a disgrace to our country and do not love America at all. They can never convince me otherwise and all of this proves it.

13,000 Welcome McCain-Palin In Minn.

13,000 plus welcome McCain-Palin

John McCain and Sarah Palin brought their campaign back to Minnesota Friday, appearing before thousands of roaring supporters in a cavernous hangar at the Anoka County-Blaine Airport.

At the same hour, Barack Obama's backers were at Peavy Plaza in downtown Minneapolis .

The lipstick motif Palin has injected into the campaign -- "Read my Lipstick" read placards at each rally.

"Our opponent points the finger of blame, but has he ever lifted a finger to help?" Palin asked.

"NO!" the crowd responded.

When she talked about the need to diversify the nation's energy supply, Palin was greeted by the "Drill, Baby, Drill" chant that had rocked the Republican convention.

Palin condemned Iran's attempt to develop nuclear weapons. "Iran should not be allowed to acquire nuclear weapons -- period!" she said.

The crowd is yelling “NObama, NObama, NObama!!!

They played Dolly Parton’s “Straight Talk.”

There was someone in the crowd with a poster of the Statue of Liberty wearing bright red lipstick.

The McCain campaign estimated the crowd at 13,000, citing the Transportation Security Administration. And not all of them fit in the hangar.


Road to Victory tour hits Blaine, MN

Gov. Sarah Palin ..... Part 1

Gov. Sarah Palin ..... Part 2

Sen. John McCain Part 1

Sen. John McCain Part 2

Report from a friend that was there:

"We left for the rally at about 8:30 this morning, as most of us had kids we had to get off to school, but didn't actually get into the hangar until after 10:00. We managed to get out of the looooong line of cars that were trying to get in the lot by the hangar, and found a smaller lot about a mile away. We hoofed it. There were about 7 protesters standing by the entrance to the airfield, but they were just standing there with their signs. They were Minnesota-nice moonbats, I guess. LOL. One of the signs was “The Disasta from Alaska”, and I just laughed out loud when I read it.
We had to go through the metal detectors, and they confiscated all the cans of soda and the apples my friend had in a small cooler. They let her keep the granola bars, crackers, and water that she had. Thank goodness! Periodically, people were asked to drink out of their water bottles. We didn't have to do that.
After we kind of “nestled in” to our spot, people were handing out large hand-painted signs, “Hockey Moms for McCain/Palin” (or just Palin), and “Palin Power”. We had the latter. They also handed out the campaign printed, “Country First” signs. I proceeded to put lipstick marks on all of ours—gave it that personal touch so-to-speak.;^)
I looked around and noticed quite a few younger people, which was so nice to see. There were groups with the same tee shirts. One group had red shirts with "Obamunisms" on them.
There were pro-life signs and shirts. One sign that I particularly liked said, "I already have a Savior, I am looking for a president!" There were lots of special needs signs and shirts as well. The rally started right around 11:00 with Mary Pawlenty (the Governor's wife) introducing the color guard. The pledge was recited, the star spangles banner was sung, the prayer invoked (which was NO wimpy prayer--thank you, Pastor Steve!) and the rally kicked off! Some of the speakers were Congressman John Klein, Senator Norm Coleman, a dem woman (local rep, I think) for McCain (thinking PUMA here), Ron Sherrer (sp?), who is a local television personality , and Michelle Bachmann who mostly introduced Governor Palin, stressing her support for drilling in ANWR! (I think this is perfect cover for McCain to "change his mind, after seeing it for himself") When Governor Sarah Palin and Sentor John McCain were introduced, the crowd erupted. There was so much energy in that place, it was palpable.
Her speech was great, and with just a few of the lines repeated from the convention, she actually had a lot of new material--she talked about how three years ago, John McCain stood in the well in the Senate and warned about the Fannie/Freddie impending disaster, but the Dems fought him.
The crowd absolutely loved her. But they clearly loved McCain as well. When he was introduced the crowd went wild. He talked about his warnings of the financial situation, Biden’s “taxes are patriotic” bonehead comment, and spent time talking about his promise to the troops. He asked for those that served our country to raise their hands, and for the rest of us to give them a large round of “sustained” applause. We complied. There were a LOT of raised hands in that building. It was very humbling.
I really couldn't see, but it didn't matter. I really feel that I was witnessing history being made. We all felt that way. There was just so much energy and excitement. It makes me feel hopeful for this blue state.
Just this, McCain and Palin made me come away with the same feeling... they are real, genuine people. He looks you straight in the eyes when he speaks to you and shakes you hand. One of my friends a Vet was able to get near the front and shake hands with both of them. He said McCain has a good handshake and not a let me do this and move on to the next person kind. He thanked my friend for his service and Palin did too. "


Regarding Obama:

Sadly, the Obama thugs are forcing states to register voters (college kids) who may also be voting in their home states. Areas of Ohio will give out ballots without any ID!

There is just too much voter fraud going on already & it's nothing like we've seen before, there is a Strong-Arm bunch behind BO and they are doing their job well!

Joe Biden: Paying Higher Taxes Is Patriotic

While Barack Obama tries to call John McCain a “liar” for saying Obama will raise taxes on a wide swath of Americans, Joe Biden tells America that paying higher taxes is … patriotic? The Democratic VP told Good Morning America today that “it’s time to be patriotic” and start allowing Uncle Sam to take even more of your paycheck:


BUT look at this...... he not only said it in his interview he said it when speaking at one of his rallies. And the idiot people applauded. Soooooo I was sort of kind of thinking about alll those morons that just LOVE taxes, why don't they pay all of ours. Just a suggestion.

The word Patriotism just does NOT belong in the vocabulary of a liberal, no way. And I resent it when they use the word. But to Joe Biden he things paying taxes is all it takes to be patriotic and respecting our American Flag is NOT!

SCREW YOU Joe Biden!

Sarah Palin and Margaret Thatcher

This was the second night of the interview that Hannity did of Sarah Palin. She mentions Margaret Thatcher so I am putting it with this article.

Sarah Palin Interview w/ Sean Hannity Day.2 pt.4
September 18, 2008 Hannity Colmes

Can Palin Follow Thatcher’s Footsteps?


Parallels abound between Gov. Sarah Palin’s quest to be a heartbeat from the U.S. presidency and Margaret Thatcher’s rise to power in Great Britain.

Thatcher broke the glass ceiling in her country, where no woman had ever risen to such a top leadership position. The arguments against her were plenty: She had no experience in foreign policy, defense or national security matters. Most of her expertise was in domestic issues such as education. The old-boy network was united against her, but she took on the leadership in her own party.

In addition, the intellectual and political establishment disdained Thatcher. They looked down on her lower-middle-class background in a small town and her religiously strict background. She sparked the ire particularly of the academic left who called her “Attila the Hun in a skirt.”

Thatcher, who along with Ronald Reagan won the Cold War, slashed union-written restrictions and regulations to revive Britain’s sagging economy into the strongest in Europe. Winston Churchill II said Thatcher, along with his grandfather, were “the greatest British prime ministers in history.”

Thatcher, also against environmentalist protests, pushed oil drilling offshore in the North Sea in the northern extremity of her country, North Scotland. Scots enthusiastically embraced the drilling and pipe-laying that brought new prosperity to the region.

Similarly, Alaskans applauded their governor, Palin, who now is Republican vice presidential candidate for her support of oil and gas exploration.

Other similarities abound between Palin “the Barracuda,” which was her basketball nickname, and Thatcher, known as “the Iron Lady.”

Thatcher, like Palin, was not an accommodating or compromising politician. Her most famous phrase was: “This lady’s not for turning.” Her cabinet did not want her to rescue the Falklands from the grip of Argentinean Dictator Leopoldo Galtieri, but she did.

In Alaska, Republican leaders tried to stop Palin from going after corruption in her own party. Her intransigence upset the don’t-rock-the-boat Republicans in control.

In Britain, after a late Cabinet meeting, where most of Thatcher’s ministers had opposed cuts she proposed, she took them out for dinner at a trattoria near Ten Downing Street. The waiter approached her and the 10 men and started to read the specials.

Thatcher stopped him and said, “We’ll have the pasta.” The waiter nodded and said, “What about the veggies?”

“They’ll have pasta, too,” Thatcher replied.

Thatcher once said,

“Some things are right; some things are wrong. Life is ultimately character, and that character comes from what you make of yourself. You must work hard to support yourself, but hard work is even more important in the formation of character.”

Palin has uttered much the same thing about her own life. It is not surprising that both grew up with the same small-town, middle-class, church-attending, hard-working values.

Thatcher was the youngest girl on the field hockey team when she was 11, and eventually became its captain. She later said, “It was not the playing that gave her pleasure, but the competition and winning.”
Similarly, Palin developed her zest for fighting to win in sports.

When Thatcher was elected to a Conservative Parliament in 1959 at age 34, the Conservatives under Harold Macmillan held office. But the old-boy network gave her only minor sub-Cabinet positions. She voted against abortion and voiced opposition to easing laws against gays for sodomy with minors.

Thatcher would win respect for her hard work and her speeches against waste and big spending.

In 1974, Conservative Prime Minister Ted Heath lost to Socialist Harold Wilson, mostly because he appeased the unions in a national strike. There was a move to challenge Heath for the leadership of the Conservative Party. Thatcher announced her candidacy for the leadership position. She was not given a chance; her rivals had served in posts such as foreign secretary, defense minister and chancellor of the exchequer in previous Conservative governments. They also were part of the upper-class establishment that had ruled the Conservative Party.

Thatcher, a grocer’s daughter, could boast of no posh prep school background, but her principal opponents, Willie Whitelaw, Sir Geoffrey Howe and James Prior did. One Conservative member of Parliament said they “wondered whether a woman could represent the country internationally dealing with defense and foreign policy matters thought to be provinces of men.”

Although her only Cabinet position had been a minor one in education under Heath, Sir Alec Douglas-Home, the foreign secretary under Heath, had said at the time that “she’s smarter and tougher than all the rest of the Cabinet combined.”

Conservative leaders did not know how to deal with Thatcher. As her biographer, Chris Ogden of Time magazine, observed, her rivals’ experience with women was limited to aristocratic wives and demure and acquiescent females.

But Thatcher would tell election groups in England, as Palin would later in Alaska, “In politics, if you want something said, ask a man; if you want anything done, ask a woman.”

In Britain, Margaret Thatcher struck a resonant chord with Conservative Party constituencies and won the party leadership. Still, the party establishment was uneasy with her unapologetic free market programs and tough anti-communist policies. Shortly after she assumed the leadership post, the Conservative Central Party office approached me and asked whether I would draft a speech for the coming campaign in 1975 that was a softer, folksier approach.

When Thatcher read the draft, she remonstrated, “Haven’t you ever read ‘The Road to Serfdom’ by Friedrich Hayek?”

“Yes”, I replied.

“Well it doesn’t show it,” Thatcher said, ripping up the speech.

The fact was that I wrote the draft I was asked to, but the Conservative office had been afraid to risk her wrath by writing such mush.

The only time Palin has ever said “mush” was to Eskimo sled dogs. Like Thatcher, she is tough talking and outspoken. Palin’s actions speak louder than her words.

In 1979, Thatcher’s plain speaking on Conservative plans to cut taxes and regulations on business galvanized the party’s base and she was elected prime minister. Her vision of “a man’s right to work as he will, to spend what he earns to have the state as servant not master” inspired her country.

Three decades later, Palin has likewise energized her party and has become a rallying point. Would a Vice President Palin be a future Margaret Thatcher?

Wild Thing's comment...........

This is such a great article, well worth reading and it is a feel good article too in the comparisons of Palin and Thatcher.

Sarah Palin To Speak At The Villages......

Sarah Palin To Make Appearance At The Villages

The VIDEO is GREAT too

People lined up Friday to get their tickets to see the vice-presidential candidate.

The line wrapped around the square about three times, with people waiting as early as 7 a.m. Friday for tickets to see Sarah Palin at The Villages this Sunday.

At The Villages 16,000 tickets were handed out, but that only accounts for half of the crowd that's expected for the vice-presidential candidate's Sunday appearance. Thousands of tickets were also handed out in other parts of Florida.

Annie Marie Delgado, president of the Greater Ocala Republican Club, said the last estimated turn out she got was over 30,000.

As preparations began, so did the excitement in the crowd of people waiting for Palin tickets.

“She can see what needs to be done, what changes need to be done and she's not afraid to do it,” Villages resident Beverly List said.

The gates open at 1:30 p.m. Sunday. Event organizers are urging people to show up early because there will be standing room only. They said things like chairs and umbrellas should be left at home. Organizers believe that this event will bring more people to The Villages than even an appearance by President Bush.

Also this article ................

Palin’s first stop in Florida — The Villages


When GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin makes her first trip to Florida as John McCain’s running mate, it will be to The Villages.

The McCain-Palin campaign officially confirmed the Sunday-afternoon appearance here by the Alaska governor on Thursday afternoon.

“There is a lot of excitement about Gov. Palin’s historic visit to Florida and to The Villages. She has energized the base, as well as former Hillary supporters,” McCain/Palin 2008 Southeast Regional Communications Director Mario Diaz said.
“Ever since John McCain showed the world that he was truly ready to bring change, the McCain Web site and the phones at the (campaign) offices have been flooded nonstop with e-mail and phone calls as to when Floridians would get the chance to see Gov. Palin,” Diaz said.

As of Thursday press time, The Villages was the only stop in Florida for Palin that the campaign would confirm.

Palin’s campaign rally is slated for 4:30 p.m. Sunday at Market Square in Lake Sumter Landing.

Here in The Villages, the news of Palin’s Sunday-afternoon visit has generated plenty of excitement.

Alice Briggs, a native of Boston who now makes her home in the Village of Country Club Hills, heard about Palin’s visit and knew that she wanted to volunteer and help out.

“I like the fact that she is a woman. I like the fact that she is independent. John McCain made a brilliant choice by choosing her. She’s fearless,” Briggs said.
“I have two sons retired form the military. I have a granddaughter in the Navy and a grandson in the Navy who just got back from Iraq. Another grandson recently retired from the military intelligence. I say they aren’t warriors — they are peace makers,” Briggs said.

Briggs is also serving as the coordinator for the phone banks for the Lake County Republican Women for John McCain.

Ellen Hoffman, Sumter County Republican Executive Committee, said the outpouring of volunteers to help with the Palin visit has been overwhelming.

“There is lots of enthusiasm. People are extremely excited about her visit,” Hoffman said.

She said that it’s clear that Palin has excited the party from the national level down to the grassroots level.

“Of course, women and especially mothers identify with her because she has had to balance work and family. She has also shown herself as a highly impressive speaker with a great level of intelligence,” Hoffman said.

The McCain-Palin campaign already has developed a familiarity with The Villages.

McCain held a town-hall style rally at Savannah Center in The Villages on Jan. 27. It was attended by several thousand people. Two days later he went on to win the Florida Primary.


Wild Thing's comment............

When we were at the Republian headquarters this last Tuesday I asked if there was going to be a rally with Sarah or McCain and Sarah Palin and they said only McCain would be speaking in Tampa on Wednesday. That there was nothing planned with Sarah at that time.

This was such a wonderful surprise even though announced late on Thursday and I just found out about it at 3:10 this morning. haha

I am gonig to call and see if they have any tickest left....I know dream on..... or if I can be one of the volunteers. So I am keeping my fingers crossed.

Being new to Florida I have never heard of The Villages, so I asked Nicholas and he said it is about 80 miles from us. He said it is a retirement place.

This is so exciting, and I guess even though the event said it can only handle 16,000 they are expecting 30,000 or more. A man on TV last night a dem of course said interest in Palin is sinking fast. Nicholas and I sat there and just laughed, they are trying so hard to lie and lie and use their propaganda for the people that might believe them.

Tony Snow’s parents live in The Villages. I wonder if they will be there.

Learning the Ropes at the Hanoi Hilton

By Henry Mark Holzer

The Obama campaign has recently ridiculed John McCain for his supposed unfamiliarity with computers, and his alleged inability to type. Whatever the truth of this not-so-thinly veiled attempt to portray the Republican candidate as a fossil out of touch with the contemporary scene, the Democrats have yet again denigrated McCain’s (and other POWs') suffering in Hanoi, which was the cause of most of the Senator’s physical ailments.

Much of that suffering was caused by a torture treatment called “the ropes.” It is pictured below.

As Erika Holzer and I wrote in our book “Aid and Comfort”: Jane Fonda in North Vietnam: “Perhaps the worst torture the North Vietnamese inflicted was “the ropes.”

One POW, Larry Guarino, described it this way:

"Let me try to tell you what it really feels like when they tightly bind your wrists and elbows behind your back with nylon straps – then take the strap and pull the arms up, up your back, to the back of your head. * * * Well, imagine this with both arms tied tight together – elbow to elbow, wrist to wrist – and then, using the leverage of his feet planted between your shoulder blades, with both hands, he pulls with all his might, ‘til your arms are up and back over your head down between your feet, where your legs are between iron bars. The pain is literally beyond description. . .
Besides the pain itself, you are tied up so tight that your windpipe becomes pinched and you breathe in gasps. You’re trying to gulp in air, because your wind passage is being shrunken. Your throat, in a matter of 30 seconds, becomes completely dry. . . .
After about 10 or 15 minutes in this position, tied up so tightly, your nerves in your arms are pinched off, and then your whole upper torso becomes numb. It’s a relief. You feel no more pain. . . . The breathing is still difficult, but the pain is gone. You’ve been anesthetized. However, when they release the ropes, the procedure works completely in reverse. It’s almost like double jeopardy. You go through the same pain coming off the ropes as you did going in."

And so in the freedom and security of hotel penthouse suites the effete Obama camp sips their lattes and nibbles on their stilton, ridiculing McCain, Guarino and their fellow POWs because they don’t know how to use computers and can’t type.

Well, maybe they can’t. And maybe, just maybe, it’s because at the Hanoi Hilton they were busy learning something else: the ropes.

....Thank you Mark for this article.

Michelle Obama: Don't vote because 'she's cute'

Michelle Obama: Don't vote because 'she's cute'

North Country Times

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Michelle Obama asked voters Thursday to make their choice on the issues, not because, "I like that guy" or, "she's cute."

Might she be talking about Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin?

"I'm talking about me," she said with a smile.

Barack Obama's wife, however, is not on the ticket in the presidential election. Palin is.

Michelle Obama's remarks came at a women's roundtable on the economy. She told the audience of 600 that her husband is the only candidate focused on equal pay, health care, affordable college, teacher recruitment and other issues of concern to women. She said that's what the election should be about.

"People shouldn't make a decision this time based on, 'I like that guy' or 'she's cute,'" she said.

The line won a big round of applause. Before it subsided, she interjected: "And I'm talking about me."

Wild Thing's comment............

The most critical part of Michelle Obama's admonition is that she is telling voters to vote based upon their "self interest," rather than in the interest of the country.

‘Everybody’ Gets Credit for No New Terrorist Attacks Since 9/11, Says Pelosi

‘Everybody’ Gets Credit for No New Terrorist Attacks Since 9/11, Says Pelosi

You can see the VIDEO HERE...............

Sen. Bob Casey Jr. (D-Pa.) evaded the question, saying instead that the anniversary of 9/11 was a day of remembrance and “renewal.” Casey made his remarks following a congressional September Remembrance Ceremony held on the steps of the Capitol on Sept. 11, 2008. Pelosi spoke with at a news conference that same day.

“Well, I think today is really a day to think about what happened on September 11th and what we’ve lived through since then,” said Casey. “It’s a day when we renew our commitment to our country.”

“I think there’s a basic commitment from both parties about keeping the country safe,” he said. “There’s a lot of consensus on keeping the country safe in the midst of some disagreements about how to get there.”

Rep. Sue Myrick (R-NC) said the threat of terrorism still exists. “Well, I think our whole apparatus of security in this country has improved from what it was but it is a false security,” she told

Pelosi said that “everybody” deserves credit for no attacks in the United States. “Well, I think everybody deserves credit for that – our first responders in local areas,” she said. “Some of the things that have been headed off have happened because of first responders or other law enforcement officials.”

She also said the war in Iraq has not made America safer.

“It has undermined our military’s capability to respond to threats to our security wherever they may occur,” she told “It has diminished our reputation in the world to have the diplomatic alliances to keep the world a safer place.”

"The War in Afghanistan has been intensified,” said Pelosi, adding that it is the “real war on terror.”


Wild Thing's comment...........

You just know my blood is boiling about this. Harry Reid and his press conference to announce how HE had stopped the Patriot Act that time. Pelosi, Murtha, Reid, Kennedy, Kerry and the rest of the low life fighting Bush and our Generals every step of the way. Holding back support for our troops, for funds and holding press conferences to tell the world how we are doing a terrible job in Iraq, how we lost and should come home.

What???? Everyone Nancy????? E-V-E-R-Y-O-N-E ??

Did she drive a humvee down those streets in Iraq to check on IED's and see her fellow soldier get blown up right before her eyes? Did she ?

Did she know the feeling of her heart pounding out of her chest, holding her breath not sure if just on the other side of the doorway was an insurgent waiting to take out all his men and himself in the blink of an eye? Did she?

And then the feeling of being safe and winning that battle for the hour, not day, not week , by hour by hour, minute by minute. Has she known that feeling?

That fighting for freedom is a feeling like none other, something Pelosi will never have a clue about not the taste, smell or feel of it. But even worse she cannot put herself in the emotional place of a soldier how it feels to be fighting for his/her country and have those back home trashing all he does. Demanding ROE's that are so politically correct that mistakes can be made from being too concerned with the safety of the insurgent and what the media will say back home instead of doing what he was trained to do and is dam good at it.

She doesn't have to know any of this, there are many that don't. BUT they don't do and say things that put our troops in harms way like Pelosi and the rest of the dems have done with their aiding the enemy against us in their verbiage and actions.

Pelosi makes me sick with her taking credit and handing it out like candy at Halloween when she is part of who the enemy of our land is and very much part of the problem.

Like hell Pelosi! You and your terrorist supporting, support base have done everything possible to ensure another 9/11.

That this woman is two heartbeats away from the Oval Office is more frightening than Mahmoud Ahmadinejad with his finger on the big red button - and tantamount to the same thing - the destruction of the America as we know it.

The Story Behind The Palin e-mail Hacking

The story behind the Palin e-mail hacking

Michelle Malkin .....Michelle has the full text of how they did it and about the place the person posted the emails.

Here's the short version:

there is a site called It is an image posting site based on a popular Japanese site. The site contains multiple boards, each of which is dedicated to a particular subject. The most notorious of these boards is called /b/. /b/ is the board dedicated to random images. /b/tards, as its denizens are called, are interested only in their own amusement. Their sense of humor runs the gamut from sick to cruel to merely strange. Lolcats, as made famous by, originated on /b/. A lot of memes start there. There is a lot of racist humor -- pictures of excited and happy black people in proximity to fried chicken abound. There is a lot of pornography. Sometimes it's child pornography, although posting that is moderator grounds for banning -- no, it's not a pedophile ring; /b/tards post it because they think doing so is funny
4chan does not log participants. Most people don't use or have usernames, and post instead as "Anonymous." And every so often, a number of /b/'s anonymous denizens decide to make somebody's life hell. Sometimes it's a random person who offends /b/'s sense of propriety. Sometimes it's a forum dedicated to a serious topic. Sometimes it's Scientology. And Tuesday, it was Sarah Palin. Or it would have been.

Sarah Palin's email account was hacked by one person. Not a group. Here is what the person said that was telling how they did it:

"Earlier it was just some prank to me, I really wanted to get something incriminating which I was sure there would be, just like all of you anon out there that you think there was some missed opportunity of glory, well there WAS NOTHING, I read everything, every little blackberry confirmation… all the pictures, and there was nothing, and it finally set in, THIS internet was serious business, yes I was behind a proxy, only one, if this shit ever got to the FBI I was fucked, I panicked, i still wanted the stuff out there but I didn’t know how to rapidshit all that stuff, so I posted the pass on /b/, and then promptly deleted everything, and unplugged my internet and just sat there in a comatose state."

Wild Thing's comment..........

When they catch the person that did this I want that person punished. I want to see the media upset about this as if it had been done to Obama and not a Republican. The media can't keep excusing things that are vile that are done to Sarah Palin just because it is not their candidate.

..... Thank you Brad for the link.

O'Reilly's Calling FBI On Palin Hackers & Lib Blog Posters

O'Reilly's Calling FBI On Palin Hackers & Lib Blog Posters

Hackers break into Sarah Palin's e-mail account


Hackers broke into the Yahoo! e-mail account that Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin used for official business as Alaska's governor, revealing as evidence a few inconsequential personal messages she has received since John McCain selected her as his running mate.

"This is a shocking invasion of the governor's privacy and a violation of law. The matter has been turned over to the appropriate authorities and we hope that anyone in possession of these e-mails will destroy them," the McCain campaign said in a statement.

The Secret Service contacted The Associated Press on Wednesday and asked for copies of the leaked e-mails, which circulated widely on the Internet. The AP did not comply.

The disclosure Wednesday raises new questions about the propriety of the Palin administration's use of nongovernment e-mail accounts to conduct state business. The practice was revealed months ago—prior to Palin's selection as a vice presidential candidate—after political critics obtained internal e-mails documenting the practice by some aides.

One person whose e-mail to Palin apparently was among those disclosed, Amy B. McCorkell, declined to discuss her correspondence. "I do not know anything about it," McCorkell said. "I'm not giving you any comment." said McCorkell later confirmed that she did send the e-mail to Palin.

Another of the e-mails apparently revealed Wednesday was an exchange in July with Alaska Lt. Gov. Sean Parnell discussing a talk show host who had been critical of Parnell. Parnell declined to discuss the matter.

Palin herself used "gov.sarah" in one of her e-mail addresses, but the hackers targeted her "gov.palin" account. Her husband used "fek9wnr" in his address. "Fe" is the representation for iron, and "k9" is an abbreviation for canine. Todd Palin was the winner of the grueling Iron Dog snowmobile race, and "fek9wnr" also is Todd Palin's vehicle license tag in Alaska.

It wasn't immediately clear how hackers broke into Palin's Yahoo! account, but it would have been possible to trick the service into revealing her password knowing personal details about Palin that include her birthdate and ZIP code. A hacker also might have sent a forged e-mail to her account tricking her into revealing her own password.

McCorkell was appointed by Palin to an advisory board on issues involving alcohol and drug abuse. One of the leaked e-mails suggested McCorkell wrote to Palin on Sunday to say she was praying for Palin. "Don't let the negative press get you down!" the message said.

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

Palin Disinvited From Iran Rally

Palin disinvited from Iran rally


The organizers of an anti-Iran rally Monday rescinded their invitation to Alaska Governor Sarah Palin after Democrats protested that her presence would turn the event into a political rally, McCain campaign and Jewish community sources said.

The Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations created a political tempest by inviting Palin to speak without clearing her invitation with another speaker, Senator Hillary Clinton. Clinton promptly dropped out of the event, saying it would be seen as unduly political. The McCain campaign then pressed Senator Barack Obama to join Palin on the stage in a show of unity against Iran.

The Obama campaign in turn offered to send Congressman Robert Wexler of Florida .

But the appearance that the non-partisan group was aligning with the Republican ticket put the group and its president, Malcolm Hoenlein, under heavy pressure from Jewish Democrats, including members of the conference, members of Congress, and the liberal group J Street, not to give Palin a platform, sources said. Hoenlein told the McCain campaign that he would have to rescind Palin's invitation or cancel the rally.

The organizers, I'm told, have formally disinvited all elected and political officials, but the move was about Palin.

"In order to keep the focus on Iranian threats and to ensure that this critical message not be obscured, the organizers of the rally have decided not to have any American political personalities appear," the Stop Iran Now coalition said in a statement. "This issue, opposition to a nuclear-armed Iran, is one which enjoys bipartisan support and the backing of the American people across the political spectrum. On this, all Americans stand together. We acknowledge and deeply appreciate those American political leaders who have been and remain prepared to stand with us as we collectively address the dangers of Iran's nuclear program and its support for terrorism globally."

Wild Thing's comment........

So, it was not “unduly political” when Hillary was going to show up by herself - but it is when Sarah is invited? Do the Dems have ANY idea how stupid they look?

Meanwhile, Iran thanks Hillary for toning down the important voices against it, and can’t stop rolling on the floor laughing at the stupidity of those who “supposedly” oppose it. Some of these organtizatikons that plan rallies and yes like this one they are not as dedicated as they appear.

The best support for Israel comes from Republicans, NOT Democrats. The Clinton's had Arafat visit them and they snubbed Netanyahu.

Before the flap, they had invited DEMOCRAT HILLARY CLINTON, who is on the campaign of Barack Obama.

So how did “Adding Sarah Palin”, who is Governor of Alaska, make it into a “political event”? It was already a “political event”.

This is just great NOT, what a thing for Achmedenijihad and his boys to see happening. This is beyond disgusting!

Obviously for some the chants, "Death to Israel" and " Death To America" have been forgotten and politics has been replaced with wanting a country to unite against terrorists.

Vandals Strike GOP Sarasota, Florida Headquarters

Vandals Strike GOP Sarasota Headquarters

Sarasota Herald-Tribune

Published: September 17, 2008

Vandals sprayed the word "Obama" on the Republican Party of Sarasota's office on Tamiami Trail near the intersection with Stickney Point Road on Tuesday night.

The culprits also tore up campaign signs, party Chairman Eric Robinson said.

Robinson estimated the damage at $900 and chalked up the incident to growing election fever.

"It just shows that people get very worked up about these races," Robinson said. "Especially the presidential ones. People take it very personally."

Robinson attributed the incident to heightened emotions surrounding the election.

Robinson contended that such incidents do not play well with voters.

The spray paint is not the worst problem the office has endured.

Copper thieves broke in three times over the summer and stole $1,500 worth of air conditioning parts.

Wild Thing's comment...........

Besides this being horrible, it is also weird. Nicholas and I were there that same day, this last Tuesday ( Sept. 16th. ) we got a Veterans for McCain/Palin t-shirt and some stickers.

It is just so typical as can be that Obama people would do something like being vandals. Thanks Obama for the low lifes you have in your realm. They fit right in with Ayers and the rest of his tripe.

Today 50 years ago Nicholas ( Angry Old Salt ) entered his career as a stuntman and actor. He went into this career after he finished serving in the US Navy and his first job was a show called " Rat Patrol" starring Christopher George.

His specialities were explosions ( being the person inside in the explosion and set on fire) , car chases, high falls, fights, helicopter stunts hanging from the chopper, goiing from one chopper to a plane, dragged by horses, running on top of moving trains, stunts in water and motorcycle stunts, stair falls and many other things.

He used his first and middle name in his career since the last name is too long and hard for some people to pronounce. haha

His Bio and list of some of the work he has done.

He has had 11 operations each one on his knees, and elbows over the years. He still goes to the gym 3 days a week and it now takes him about 45 minutes to get as he puts it the ole body able to move in the morning.

During his 50 years as an actor and stuntmen there were 2 years where work was slow so he joined the carpenters union and worked building sets at the studio's.

Some of his favorite people he worked with and became good frieinds with over the years were Elvis ( they also played football together on a football team that a lot of the guys were in at one of the parks in the Los Angeles area. James Garner a really great guy, Dean Martin from his work on Matt Helm and several others.

He was a double for action actors Sean Connery and William Smith among others.

He later became a regular in many of Arnold Schwarzenegger's films, and doubled for the one arm man in the big screen version of "The Fugitive" movie with Harrison Ford.

I have no idea who does these things but when I typed Nick Dimitri into google tons of pages came up. I showed it to Nick and he was amazed that people did things like that about stuntmen/actor.

I wanted to do something on here for Nicholas for this special day. Thank you all for this little time out on a special day. ---- Wild Thing

The Rat Patrol ( intro theme ) TV series in the 60's

They filmed most of The Rat Patrol at Edwards Air Force Base in Calif. And several other locations in Calif.

The series was supposed to appear set in North Africa during World War II, this series chronicles the adventures of a 4-man team of commandos within the Long Range Desert Group

This one is a TV show called " Norliss Tapes" with Roy Thinnes and Angie Dickinson . Nick plays the husband of Angie and he is an artist that goes over the deep end seeking a way to stay alive forever. giggle So he creates a monster and that has to have blood. Kind of a scary movie back then and Nicholas said he had a lot of fun with the part he played.

From the classic horror film The Norliss Tapes, this scene is the finale, where the Demon Sargoth comes to life, only to be trapped in the blood circle of fire. You can see that he is very bummed.

They had contacts on his eyes that made it almost impossible for him to see, so when they broke for lunch, Angie lead him to the lunch wagon and helped him pick out his lunch. haha

Nick kids that the way they had him made up made him look like a Democrat. heh heh

The Final Fight from the movie of 1975, ¨Hard Times¨, starring Charles Bronson

Charles Bronson as Chaney, a street fighter who travels to Louisiana during the Great Depression to make his living in illegal boxing matches. This kind of fighting for money in streets and warehouses was done a lot during that era during the Depression.

Steven Seagal in Out For Justice, Bar Scene!

" 48 Hours"

Nick is the cowboy that is sitting at the table that tells Eddie Murphy off.

The Fall Guy ( TV show series )
Angry Old Salt did several of the stunts on the into and also worked most of the shows

This was funny when he did this ad ( he is on the left). Nicholas has never smoked.Only in this ad. haha

Lady Rothschild takes down Wolf Blitz! A MUST SEE

CNN's Wolf Blitzer with Lynn Forester De Rothschild on the Dem Ticket and why she is supporting McCain. "You're the elitist, not me."

Wild Thing's comment..........

This is what I was mentioning yesterday in my post about Lynn Forester De Rothschild and her decision to vote for McCain/Palin. I saw this when it happened and am so glad it is at YouTube. hahahahaha

LOL Andrea Mitchell said these women were “uneducated.” . I don't agree with Rothschild on abortion but it is soooooo marvelous to see her take Wollf down several notches. hahahaha

More and more women are beginning to understand how the democratic party keep them in line with the abortion issue. This lady was articulate and clearly knows what she wants and will take her money with her and her influence on the campaign trail. The Obamanators must be panicking to see this plus the whole PUMA phenomenon.

And you know what I bet Hillary is smiling so big from this. heh heh Obama must need some of those stomach pills for upset tummies. Wolf looked a bit astounded and confused. That is good. She has set him off his game and thrown his neuron pathways into a tizzy

And she quotes Ronald Reagan at the end, "I did not leave the Democratic party. The Democratic party left me." Perfect.

This is indeed a uniquely weird but oh so exciting election.

Remember how Lynn Cheney did a number on Wolf too when she went on his show and told him off about his showing the snuff film of one of our soldiers being killed.

Palin can change the culture. That’s why the left hates her more than Bush. Just like with Reagan, Palin makes being a conservative cool again and I love it so much.

There is something very special about her. She has an infectious optimism... just like Reagan!

We need to pray daily for Sarah.

Obama The Uniter??? He Tells Supporters " Get In Their Face"

Obama mocks McCain in Nevada stops

SF Gate

Barack Obama sharpened his attacks on John McCain and mocked the Republican's recent calls for reform in two stops in Nevada on Wednesday after days of listening to nervous supporters fret about the Democrat's chances of taking the White House.

In Elko, Nevada, Obama tried to anticipate his critics and called on the crowd of about 1,500 to sharpen their elbows, too.

"I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face," he said.
"And if they tell you that, 'Well, we're not sure where he stands on guns.' I want you to say, 'He believes in the Second Amendment.' If they tell you, 'Well, he's going to raise your taxes,' you say, 'No, he's not, he's going lower them.' You are my ambassadors. You guys are the ones who can make the case."

Wild Thing's comment......... long do any of you think it will be before Obamatons get so desparate that they begin beating up or killing Republicans and/or Independents? I think this is dangerous what Obama is telling his supporters to do. Keeping in mind the type of people that are voting for Obama they already are radical and many are from violent backgrounds.

Why did the term “Nazi youth” come so quickly to my mind? Is this what he did as a “community organizer” ?

NY Post article CONFIRMED ~ More Proof Obama Is UNFIT to Be Commander In Chief!


SACRAMENTO) -- Move America Forwards political action committee, MAF Freedom PAC, today condemned Barack Obama for putting his own political objectives ahead of the safety of U.S. military personnel in Iraq.

Iraqi government sources have revealed to the New York Post that Presidential candidate Barack Obama demanded Iraqi officials stop negotiations with the Bush Administration to withdraw U.S. troops from Iraq. Fearful that the success in Iraq would harm his political aspirations, Obama sought to keep U.S. troops in Iraq so he can continue attacking the Bush Administration for not imposing a timetable for withdrawal.

If these allegations prove to be true, it should be the end of the Obama campaign, asserted MAF Freedom PAC Chairman, Melanie Morgan.

Obama should have the decency to recognize that he lacks the moral character to serve as Commander-in-Chief, and he should withdraw from the ticket. I have never heard of any candidate deliberately trying to get Americans killed to prove their point.

According to the New York Post story, not only did Obama seek to get the Iraqis to stop negotiating with Americans on the troop drawdown, he also tried to bully General David Petraeus to agree to a hard withdrawal date.

The hypocrisy of Barack Obama to say in the United States that he wants a speedier troop withdrawal date, while telling the Iraqis to stop negotiating is appalling. Even supporters of a quicker U.S. withdrawal must be sickened by his conduct in Iraq. If there was ever a candidate who has demonstrated the lack of character and leadership to represent the United States in foreign affairs, it is Barack Obama, Morgan concluded.

MAF Freedom PAC is the political action arm of Move America Forward , the nations largest pro-troop organization. The patriotic group is led by San Francisco pro-troop activist and renowned radio & television personality, Melanie Morgan.

And this by Rush Limbaugh

Obama Pressured Iraq to Delay Troop Withdrawals

Obama Campaign Confirms Effort To Delay Troop Pullout In Iraq

Obama Pressured Iraq to Delay Troop Withdrawals

Despite his insistent demands for a rapid withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq, Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama secretly urged Iraqi leaders to delay an agreement that would lead to a draw down in troop numbers.

A blockbuster expose in Monday's New York Post by Amir Tahiri revealed that Obama made his demand for the delay a key theme of his discussions with Iraqi leaders in Baghdad in July, Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari told The Post.

"He asked why we were not prepared to delay an agreement until after the U.S. elections and the formation of a new administration in Washington," Zebari said in an interview with The Post.
Zabari recalled that Obama insisted that Congress should be involved in negotiations on the status of U.S. troops, and that it was in the interests of both sides not to have an agreement negotiated by the Bush administration in its "state of weakness and political confusion."
"However, as an Iraqi, I prefer to have a security agreement that regulates the activities of foreign troops, rather than keeping the matter open," Zebari said.

Obama says he wants U.S. troops out of Iraq by 2010, a development that would be impossible if the status of forces agreement were delayed as he asked the Iraqis.

In addition to his backdoor approach to the Iraqis, The Post said Obama also sought to persuade U.S. commanders, including Gen. David Petraeus, to suggest a "realistic withdrawal date," a request they refused.

The Post noted that, "to be credible, Obma's foreign-policy philosophy requires Iraq to be seen as a failure, a disaster, a quagmire, a pig with lipstick or any of the other apocalyptic adjectives used by the American defeat industry in the past five years."
"Yet Iraq is doing much better than its friends hoped and its enemies feared," The Post stated, adding that "the United Nations mandate will be extended in December, and we may yet get an agreement on the status of forces before President Bush leaves the White House in January."


NY Post article CONFIRMED!

Obama-Biden Reservations Confirmed

The Obama campaign spent more than five hours on Monday attempting to figure out the best refutation of the explosive New York Post report that quoted Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari as saying that Barack Obama during his July visit to Baghdad demanded that Iraq not negotiate with the Bush Administration on the withdrawal of American troops.

Instead, he asked that they delay such negotiations until after the presidential handover at the end of January.

The three problems, according to campaign sources:

* The report was true,
* there were at least three other people in the room with Obama and Zebari to confirm the conversation,
* and there was concern that there were enough aggressive reporters based in Baghdad with the sources to confirm the conversation that to deny the comments would create a bigger problem.

Instead, Obama's national security spokeswoman Wendy Morigi told reporters that Obama told the Iraqis that they should not rush through what she termed a "Strategic Framework Agreement" governing the future of U.S. forces until after President Bush left office.

In other words, the Iraqis should not negotiate an American troop withdrawal. According to a Senate staffer working for Sen. Joseph Biden, Biden himself got involved in the shaping of the statement. "The whole reason he's on the ticket is the foreign policy insight," explained the staffer.


And this.................


New York Post for complete article ( it is several pages long so I will just put a little of it here.

IN Monday's Post, I discussed how Barack Obama, during his July trip, had asked Iraqi leaders not to finalize an agreement vital to the future of US forces in Iraq - and how the effect of such a delay would be to postpone the departure of the US from Iraq beyond the time Obama himself calls for.

The Obama campaign has objected. While its statement says my article was "filled with distortions," the rebuttal actually centers on a technical point: the differences between two Iraqi-US accords under negotiation - the Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA, to set rules governing US military personnel in Iraq) and the Strategic Framework Agreement (SFA, to settle the legal basis for the US military presence in Iraq in the months and years ahead).

The Obama camp says I confused the two. It continues: "On the Status of Forces Agreement, Sen. Obama has always said he hoped that the US and Iraq would complete it - but if they did not, the option of extending the UN mandate should be considered.

"As to the Strategic Framework Agreement, Sen. Obama has consistently said that any security arrangements that outlast this administration should have the backing of the US Congress - especially given the fact that the Iraqi parliament will have the opportunity to vote on it."

If there is any confusion, it's in Obama's position - for the two agreements are interlinked: You can't have any US military presence under one agreement without having settled the other accord. (Thus, in US-Iraqi talks, the aim is a comprehensive agreement that covers both SOFA and SFA.)

And the claim that Obama only wanted the Strategic Framework Agreement delayed until a new administration takes office, and had no objection to a speedy conclusion of a Status of Forces Agreement, is simply untrue.

Here is how NBC reported Obama's position on June 16, after his conversation in the US with Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari: "Obama also told Zebari, he said, that Congress should be involved in any negotiations regarding a Status of Forces Agreement with Iraq. He suggested it may be better to wait until the next administration to negotiate such an agreement."

In other words, Obama wanted a delay on the Status of Forces Agreement, not on the Strategic Framework Agreement - as his rebuttal now claims.

Continue reading here for the other 4 pages GREAT article!

Taheri's article concluding remarks:

The real news I see in the Obama statement is that there may be an encouraging evolution in his position on Iraq: The "rebuttal" shows that the senator no longer shares his party leadership's belief that the United States has lost the war in Iraq.

He now talks of "the prospect of lasting success," perhaps hoping that his own administration would inherit the kudos. And he makes no mention of his running mate Joe Biden's pet project for carving Iraq into three separate states. He has even abandoned his earlier claim that toppling Saddam Hussein was "illegal" and admits that the US-led coalition's presence in Iraq has a legal framework in the shape of the UN mandate.

In his statement on my Post article, Obama no longer talks of "withdrawal" but of "redeployment" and "drawdown" - which is exactly what is happening in Iraq now.

While I am encouraged by the senator's evolution, I must also appeal to him to issue a "cease and desist" plea to the battalions of his sympathizers - who have been threatening me with death and worse in the days since my article appeared.


Wild Thing's comment...........

In another time and place with an honest media....this would sink Team Obama.

So let me see if I have this correct,
first he Denied it,
then called Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari a liar, then admitted to it ..... sort off.

And he wants to be Commander in Chief... he can not even talk with out a TelePrompter....Lord help us!

Barack Obama - Putting his own political and personal interests ahead of our nation's interests.

Fannie Mae CEO Says Obama and Dems Are the "Family" and "Conscience" of Fannie Mae

Explosive Video, Fannie Mae CEO calling Obama and the Dems the "Family" and "Conscience" of Fannie Mae

The Banking Failures are because of the Housing Crisis, which was caused by mortgage lenders handing out bad loans and the biggest offenders: Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac

The Democrats have been taking PAYOFFS from Fannie and Freddie to look the other way FOR DECADES!

NOW VIDEO FOUND of the CEO of Fannie Mae in 2005 explaining the "FAMILY" connection with Democrats

And specifically Barack Obama and the Congressional Black Caucus .

In 2005-- Senator John McCain partnered with three other Senate Republicans to reform the government’s involvement in lending, after an attempt by the Bush administration died in Congress two years earlier. Democrats blocked the reform.

In 2005-- Barack Obama and the Congressional Black Caucus met with Fannie Mae for a "family" event. In 2005 Democrats also blocked reform of Fannie Mae:

This was before Fannie Mae started filling the pockets of Barack Obama with political donations. The junior Illinois senator collected more money from Fannie Mae than any other Washington politician except Senator Dodd in the last decade. Obama was able to accomplish this feat in just 3 years.

This video shows Fannie Mae CEO talking to members of the Congressional Black Caucus:

The Democrats have been taking PAYOFFS from Fannie and Freddie and have looked the other way FOR DECADES!

They've blocked reform.

Wild Thing's comment..........

Blocked reform. Took their money. Where I come from that's corruption. Thats being on the take.

Prominent Clinton Backer and DNC Member To Endorse McCain

Lynn Forester de Rothschild

Prominent Clinton backer and DNC member to endorse McCain



Lynn Forester de Rothschild, a prominent Hillary Clinton supporter and member of the Democratic National Committee’s Platform Committee, will endorse John McCain for president on Wednesday, her spokesman tells CNN.

The announcement will take place at a news conference on Capitol Hill, just blocks away from the DNC headquarters. Forester will “campaign and help him through the election,” the spokesman said of her plans to help the Republican presidential nominee.

Forester was a major donor for Clinton earning her the title as a Hillraiser for helping to raise at least $100,000 for the New York Democratic senator’s failed presidential bid.

In an interview with CNN this summer, Forester did not hide her distaste for eventual Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama.

“This is a hard decision for me personally because frankly I don't like him,” she said of Obama in an interview with CNN’s Joe Johns. “I feel like he is an elitist. I feel like he has not given me reason to trust him.”

Forester is the CEO of EL Rothschild, a holding company with businesses around the world. She is married to international banker Sir Evelyn de Rothschild. Forester is a member of the DNC’s Democrats Abroad chapter and splits her time living in London and New York.

More about Lynn Forester de Rothschild

Her Portfolio

The American entrepreneur—and friend of the Clintons and the Blairs—talks about India, telecom, Conrad Black, and her marriage to Sir Evelyn Rothschild.

When 67-year-old British banking scion Sir Evelyn Rothschild first set eyes on 44-year-old Lynn Forester at the 1998 Bilderberg conference—the matchmaker was none other than Henry Kissinger—she was already a woman of major means.

A corporate lawyer and telecommunications entrepreneur, the sparkly blond ex-wife of former New York politician Andrew Stein had made more than $100 million from the sale of cleverly acquired wireless broadband licenses. She was also sexy, charming, and dazzlingly well connected. Two years later, after the smitten Sir Evelyn divorced his second wife, Victoria Schott, the mother of his three children, Forester became the third Lady Rothschild. After marrying in November 2000 at a London synagogue, they honeymooned at the White House, guests of Lynn's good friends Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Today the New Jersey-born Lady de Rothschild—the flashiest hostess in London—is mates with Tony and Cherie Blair, among other topflight Britons. She's also mistress of the former John Singer Sargent home in Chelsea and of Ascott House, the 3,200-acre Rothschild family estate in Buckinghamshire, and the chief executive of E.L. Rothschild, the holding company that she owns with her third husband to manage investments in the Economist and various enterprises in India. Those include FieldFresh, a startup that will grow and export Indian fruits and vegetables for markets in Europe and Asia, and a soon-to-be-announced retail venture aimed at the exploding Indian middle class.

In July, Sir Evelyn completed the sale of his stake in the centuries-old English branch of the Rothschild banking empire (for a reported $600 million)—which frees up a lot of capital for them to be major players in the Indian business world.

This week, Lady de Rothschild talked exclusively with about business, pleasure, politics, and society—especially her devotion to the idea of President Hillary. "I'm very comfortable in brand-new spaces," she says. "I'm very comfortable with a blank sheet of paper. In fact, I've made my money by doing what people have never done before."

Wild Thing's comment..........

Member of the Democratic National Committee’s Platform Committee”

Wow, I wonder if that has ever happened before.

She was for Hillary and now if going to vote for McCain/ Palin.

heh heh what timing! She was just now on MSNBC and Nick was going through the various news channels as I was posting this. They were interviewing her and when the woman asking her questions got done she made a nasty face like she was not one bit happy with Lynn Forester de Rothschild's decision. LOL I bet she isn't happy about it since she is a news person at MSNBC and obviously a dem for Obama. haha

Joe Biden Tells Us How Very Smart He and Obama Are ~ Heh heh

1988 Road to the White House with Sen. Biden

In this 1988 Road to the White House, Sen. Joe Biden (D-DE) about his plans to run for president and outlined his political agenda. He was also asked about his academic record.

The reporter asks Biden what Law school did you attend and where did you finish in your class?

Biden gets ticked off by the question and.......................

LMAO I love old movies, and as I watched this video of Joe Biden it reminded me of a very old movie I have always liked. " The Man Who Came To Dinner" and Jimmy Durante sings a song , 'Have you ever had the feeling that you wanted to stay....' ....that sounds just like Biden with his

I bring these two videos up because of what Joe Biden said at a rally in Flat Rock, Michigan on Monday.
(September 15, 2008):

Joe Biden declares Obama too smart for some voters:

"The Republican party and some of the blogs and others on the far right, are trying very hard to paint a picture of this man, they’re trying the best as they can to mischaracterize who he is and what he stands for.
"All this stuff about how different Barack Obama is, they’re not just used to somebody really smart. They’re just not used to somebody who’s really well educated. They just don’t know quite how to handle it. Cause if he’s as smart as Barack is he must not be from my neighborhood."

LOL If the ‘One’ is so smart, then he wouldn’t mind releasing his college transcripts.

A few of Barack’s Bloopers:

Obama thinks he visited 57 States.

Obama saw dead people in his audience on Memorial Day.

He can't pronounce the state “Massatusitts”.

Obama claims he did not know the true nature of ‘Reverend’ Wright, Tony Rezko, William Ayers and ‘Father’ Pflager, yet “knows” that Sarah Palin lacks experience.

Obama thinks his granny is a ‘typical white person’.

Obama and his advocating a Breathalyzer for asthmatic children

Obama’s idea of a good vice presidential candidate is...Joe Biden.

No Biden, you slug, we fear Obama because he is a Marxist, racist, Communist. The man hasn’t a brain, he is a drone.

My Name Is Barack Obama and I Am A Teleprompter Addict



Obama's teleprompter hits the trail

CNN politics

It appears Barack Obama's teleprompter is hitting the campaign trail.

The Democratic presidential nominee has never tried to hide the fact he delivers speeches off the device, though normally he doesn't use one at standard campaign rallies and town hall events.

But the Illinois senator used a teleprompter at both his Colorado events Monday — making for a particularly peculiar scene in Pueblo, where the prompter was set up in the middle of what is normally a rodeo ring.


Wild Thing's comment.............

If Obama is elected, I wonder if he will have a teleprompter when he sits down with foreign dignitaries. I’m sure he doesn’t want to say too many “ums” and “uhs” in front of Ahmadinejad. He will have to travel with it every place he goes, every country, every State dinner, everywhere.

Obama, when asked a question during the debates:
“Uh..uh... Jim, can you please load up teleprompter script number 23?”

$9,000,000.00 Change Obama Can Believe In !

Guests arrive at the Greystone mansion in in Beverly Hills, Calif., for a fundraiser for Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama D-Ill. Tuesday Sept. 16, 2008.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Barack Obama partied with Hollywood celebrities Tuesday night and with the help of Oscar-winning singer and actress Barbra Streisand raised an eye-popping $9 million for his presidential campaign and the Democratic Party.

The night was split into two glitzy events, a reception and dinner costing $28,500 each at the Greystone Mansion, followed by entertainment by Streisand at the nearby Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel. About 250-300 people were expected at the dinner and about 800 at the entertainment, which cost $2,500 a ticket.

Dinner guests seen by reporters, or noted by waiters, included Will Ferrell, Jodie Foster, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Lee Curtis and DreamWorks founders Steven Spielberg, David Geffen and Jeffrey Katzenberg.

Obama spent more than an hour before dinner getting his picture taken with guests. He said later that people had encouraged him to be tougher and had questioned why he was so calm in a close race against Republican John McCain.

"I'm skinny but I'm tough," he said. "I'm from Chicago and we don't play. Just keep steady."

"If we can cut through the nonsense and the lipstick and the pigs and the silliness, then I'm absolutely convinced that we are going to win," Obama said, referring to some of the offbeat charges raised against him.

"The reason I'm calm ... is I've got confidence in the American people," he said. "I really think they want to see us do better." Standing in the courtyard of the palatial estate, he said his campaign was dedicated to people who need jobs and health care and worry about their pensions and sending children to college.

"It's about those who will never see the inside of a building like this," Obama said.

He said the economic turmoil in recent days had been sobering for America. "It's reminded people that this is not a game. This is not a reality show, no offense to any of you," Obama said to laughter. "This is not a sitcom."

It was a day of contrasts for Obama. Earlier in the day, the Democratic presidential candidate spoke about the public's deepening economic anxieties and portrayed Republican challenger John McCain as out of touch with the needs of hardworking people.

Then he flew to California for a night of hobnobbing with Hollywood notables.

Wild Thing's comment..........

LOL Well see Obama has got to pay for those styrofoam Greek columns.

It’s enough for 500 - 600 teleprompter systems. heh heh

Gov. Sarah Palin Rally in Golden, Colorado

Sarah Palin Speech, at The Jefferson County Fairgrounds, Golden, Colorado on Sept 15, 2008

Republican vice presidential candidate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin shakes hands with Denver police officers before getting on her airplane in Denver, Monday, Sept. 15, 2008

from a Veteran that attended the rally.....
"I was one of the first that she met and I asked her to sign my boonie hat. I gave her my marker and she signed my hat and asked if she could use the marker to sign someones ticket. I told her that she could keep the marker."


VIDEO of her speech....Parts 1 and 2

As far as how many attended the video site says 5,000. I also heard more then that, so not sure.

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, addressed the problems with the U.S. economy during a campaign stump in Golden, Colorado Monday morning.

Governor Palin was met with loud cheering and applause. She was very upbeat and forceful in speaking about the economy. She said she and McCain believed that the regulatory laws needed to be reformed, and that she was glad to hear that the Fed refused to bail out another financial institution at the expense of the American taxpayers. She spoke about the connections between Alaska and Colorado, and of course introduced her husband Todd. She spoke about support for the vets, and made several new statements on issues facing this nation.
“This crisis is an issue of real concern for the people across this great country. It’s taking a toll on this economy...I’m glad to see that in this case the Federal Reserve and the Treasury have said “no” to bail out another one — this time Lehman Brothers,” said Palin.
“This crisis happened for several reasons, which have to be addressed right now. Our regulatory system is outdated and it needs a complete overhaul. Washington has ignored this. Washington has been asleep at the switch,” said Palin.
“John McCain and I are going to put an end to the mismanagement and abuses in Washington and on Wall Street that have resulted in this financial crisis. We are going to reform the way Wall Street does business,” said Palin.

As I watched these videos, it occurred to me how many times she would stop in the middle of her speech to applaud her audience. I can't remember seeing that done quite like that before. She seems to appreciate her audience, in a way that other politicians don't.
When she asked to acknowledge the military members in the crowd, ( second video ) she not only clapped for them, but she also joined in the “USA” chant with the group. She didn't seem ill at ease or impatient to resume her talk. She just sort of slips in and out of being the crowd.

Sarah Palin just loves people. You get the feeling she really is in this for nothing more than service to country.
God bless McCain/Palin 2008!!!!!

God bless America!!!!

Obama Is ‘owed’ The Presidency - If He Loses It's Whitey's Fault

Lena Horne - Stormy Weather (1943)

The Big 'What If'

The hopes of black America ride on his shoulders. But the outcome's way up in the air.

Washington Post .......... for entire article it is two pages

By Randall Kennedy

( Randall Kennedy, a Harvard University law professor, an African American and an Obama supporter)

If Obama loses, I personally will feel disappointed, frustrated, hurt. I'll conclude that a fabulous opportunity has been lost. I'll believe that American voters have made a huge mistake. And I'll think that an important ingredient of their error is racial prejudice -- not the hateful, snarling, open bigotry that terrorized my parents in their youth, but rather a vague, sophisticated, low-key prejudice that is chameleonlike in its ability to adapt to new surroundings and to hide even from those firmly in its grip.
If Obama is defeated, I will, for a brief time, be stunned by feelings of dejection, anger and resentment. These will only be the stronger because the climate of this election year so clearly favors the Democrats, because this was supposed to be an election the Republicans couldn't win, and because in my view, the Obama ticket is obviously superior to McCain's.
But I hope that soon thereafter I'll find solace and encouragement in contemplating this unprecedented development: A major political party nominated a black man for the highest office in the land, and that man waged an intelligent, brave campaign in which many millions of Americans of all races enthusiastically supported an African American standard-bearer.
I hope that I'll take to heart the wisdom offered by two of my students. "Obama losing," one wrote, "would be hurtful, but it still spells substantial progress. . . . Change WILL come -- the wheels have been set in motion." Declared the second: "Sometimes you have to believe in the change before it comes (and in the face of its apparent defeat) for the change to be possible."

Wild Thing's comment.........

Yo, Randall, he be losing cuz he be a Commie. Can you dig it?

OK well how about this.......I'm voting against the half-white part of him that is an asshole. heh heh There that settles that! hahaha

This idea that the Democrats and a black man are owed the presidency is highly insulting. Especially considering that Obama is an awful candidate who insults the voters as bitter and most always sounds angry when giving a speech.

All HO-bama has going for him is race and his mastery at manipulating the weak-minded to support him on this basis. And this writer of this article is a racist!

The truth is that rather than bridge and heal the racial divide, Obama and his supports in particular, have made the racial divide worse, far worse.

I had a conversation at the gym with a left winger who said blacks will riot if Obama loses. He expected me to be scared.

Fine with me I said, it won’t be the first time. I moved to Florida from the Los Angeles area I know all about blacks and their riots and killing people and burning businesses in their own neighborhoods. If rioters come to my neighborhood and threaten our homes, we’ll shoot then down like dogs.

He hadn’t thought of that. lol

When the riots happened in Los Angels, they were spreading as far as Las Vegas where the blacks there were also trying to start things up. The casino's had some " friends" that stood across one of the main streets in the black area, long coats and big guns and they made an announcement to the possible rioters not to even THINK about it. hahaa It worked.

I will never forget that week, it lasted for almost 5 days of fires and horrible things we saw on TV. If we drove on the freeways we could see smoke and flames from all the fires the had started. And guess what Obama's friend, Oprah did. She invited some of the gang members on her show so they could tell about how ruff their lives were and why they deserved to be upset and do what they did. I will never forget that as long as I live. I had never seen her show and have not seen it since that one day. We watched it that one time to see what on earth she wanted them on her show for and we sure found out.

One gang member told about how he asked a man passing him on the sidewalk for a match or light for his cigarette and after the man gave it to him he shot him and then put his smoke out on his chest as the man laid there dying. Apparently there was some kind of deal made with Oprah's show that these gang members could talk and not get arrested with anything they said or something.

I remember a few years ago Randall Kennedy complained that when he and a white colleague approached a check-in desk at a hotel at the same time, the clerk addressed the white guy first. This is a guy who has a paranoid delusional concept of racism. An illustration of how emotional intensity distorts perceptions and judgment. And he's a Harvard law professor, passing this crap on to a bunch of soon to be lawyers. Good luck America.

So here is how this stupid formula works:

You are white + You don’t vote for Obama = You are racist.

It doesn’t matter that you’re a Republican and also didn’t vote for Carter, Dukakis, Clinton, Gore or Kerry. If you’re white and you don’t vote for Obama, then you are a racist.

It doesn’t matter that you’re a conservative and wouldn’t dream of voting for a left wing liberal. If you’re white and you don’t vote for Obama, then you are a racist.

It doesn’t matter that you don’t like the idea of a presidential candidate belonging to a church where the minister shouts “G. D. America!” from the pulpit; having a too-close association with a former and still-unrepentent flag-stomping terrorist; and doing real estate deals with a sleazy slumlord. If you’re white and you don’t vote for Obama, then you are a racist.

It doesn’t matter that you think Obama is wrong on national defense, wrong on taxes, wrong on abortion, and a long list of other issues. If you’re white and you don’t vote for Obama, then you are a racist.

If this is how Harvard University law professors like Randall Kennedy think, then they are even stupider than I thought they were.

False Prophet, Cult Leader Deepak Chopra Is Afraid Of Sarah Palin

Deepak Chopra on Palin: Don't Elect Another Reagan

Sources :
newsmax ...for complete article

Huffington Post

Holistic-health hawker Deepak Chopra has joined far-left Sarah Palin bashers, writing that Palin’s conservative views reverse “40 years of feminist progress,” and admonishes voters not to “elect another Ronald Reagan.”

Chopra, in an article entitled, “Obama and the Palin Effect” in The Huffington Post, says that Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin appeals to base emotions, “exhorting people to obey their worst impulses.”
He writes that Palin lurks as an anti-Obama “shadow” and says she appeals to the part of the psyche that counters virtues with negative qualities, such as “fear, anger, violence, selfishness, and suspicion of ‘the other.’”
Citing Palin’s successful small-town appeal and growing values-voter appeal, which have been hugely effective in garnering women voters, Chopra says “she can add mom to apple pie on her resume, while blithely reversing 40 years of feminist progress.”
And in a slam to Republican standard-bearer Ronald Reagan, Chopra advises voters that “it would be a shame to elect another Ronald Reagan, whose smiling persona was a stalking horse for the reactionary forces that have brought us to the demoralized state we are in.”

Part of his contempt for the Alaska governor derives from Chopra’s interpretation of Palin’s values.

He writes that her “small-town values” are “a denial of America’s global role, a return to petty, small-minded parochialism.”

This is what he says Sarah Palin stands for:

"Look at what she stands for:
--Small town values -- a denial of America's global role, a return to petty, small-minded parochialism.
--Ignorance of world affairs -- a repudiation of the need to repair America's image abroad.
--Family values -- a code for walling out anybody who makes a claim for social justice. Such strangers, being outside the family, don't need to be heeded.
--Rigid stands on guns and abortion -- a scornful repudiation that these issues can be negotiated with those who disagree.
--Patriotism -- the usual fallback in a failed war.
--"Reform" -- an italicized term, since in addition to cleaning out corruption and excessive spending, one also throws out anyone who doesn't fit your ideology."

Palin reinforces the overall message of the reactionary right, which has been in play since 1980, that social justice is liberal-radical, that minorities and immigrants, being different from "us" pure American types, can be ignored, that progressivism takes too much effort and globalism is a foreign threat.
The radical right marches under the banners of "I'm all right, Jack," and "Why change? Everything's OK as it is." The irony, of course, is that Gov. Palin is a woman and a reactionary at the same time. She can add mom to apple pie on her resume, while blithely reversing forty years of feminist progress.
It would be a shame to elect another Reagan, whose smiling persona was a stalking horse for the reactionary forces that have brought us to the demoralized state we are in. We deserve to see what we are getting, without disguise.

Wild Thing's comment.........

A false prophet backs a false messiah.

This guy is a major-league charlatan and fraud. Hey Deepak....there's a Community in India that needs organizing.....go back.

What is greater than the love of God, Family, Country that Sarah’s life demonstrates or the qualities that are exhibited by Obama’s friends...Racism, Class envy, Violence, Arrogance, Deceit?

It is good to know this guy's opinion. He also claims you can prevent and reverse cataracts by brushing your teeth, scraping your tongue, spitting into a cup of water, and washing your eyes for a few minutes with the mixture.
Chopra and Obama are both in the false hope peddling business.

He remiinds me of Jim Jones as well as his followers the same kind of brain dead people walking this earth.

He’s got it exactly backwords. Gov Palin represents optimisim, American exceptionialism, and the belief that our country is the greatest beacon of freedom in the free world. The Obamessiah is the shadow. He represents the metastasizing scourge of our nation that says America is the cause of every ill on the planet and that she deserves to be brought to her knees and subjugated to tinpot dictators, fascists and extremists.

I pray the majority of Americans have clearer vision than Deepak Chopra and his benefactor, rascist Oprah Winfrey.

1. Small town values — a nostaligic return to simpler times disguises a denial of America’s global role, a return to petty, small-minded parochialism. 2. Ignorance of world affairs — a repudiation of the need to repair America’s image abroad.”

Oh boy. I think he should stick to scamming people with his “enlightenment” routine. LOL And for 15G a weekend, Deepak will help you “get in touch with your higher self”.

LMAO ....Hey Chopra, have you met Joe Biden yet????


....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

Obama Tried To Stall GI's Iraq Withdrawl

Obama and General Petraeus

Obama Tried To Stall GI's Iraq Withdrawl

NY Post

WHILE campaigning in public for a speedy withdrawal of US troops from Iraq, Sen. Barack Obama has tried in private to persuade Iraqi leaders to delay an agreement on a draw-down of the American military presence.

According to Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari, Obama made his demand for delay a key theme of his discussions with Iraqi leaders in Baghdad in July.

"He asked why we were not prepared to delay an agreement until after the US elections and the formation of a new administration in Washington," Zebari said in an interview.

Obama insisted that Congress should be involved in negotiations on the status of US troops - and that it was in the interests of both sides not to have an agreement negotiated by the Bush administration in its "state of weakness and political confusion."

"However, as an Iraqi, I prefer to have a security agreement that regulates the activities of foreign troops, rather than keeping the matter open." Zebari says.

Though Obama claims the US presence is "illegal," he suddenly remembered that Americans troops were in Iraq within the legal framework of a UN mandate. His advice was that, rather than reach an accord with the "weakened Bush administration," Iraq should seek an extension of the UN mandate.

While in Iraq, Obama also tried to persuade the US commanders, including Gen. David Petraeus, to suggest a "realistic withdrawal date." They declined.

Obama has made many contradictory statements with regard to Iraq. His latest position is that US combat troops should be out by 2010. Yet his effort to delay an agreement would make that withdrawal deadline impossible to meet.


Iraqi leaders are divided over the US election. Iraqi President Jalal Talabani (whose party is a member of the Socialist International) sees Obama as "a man of the Left" - who, once elected, might change his opposition to Iraq's liberation. Indeed, say Talabani's advisers, a President Obama might be tempted to appropriate the victory that America has already won in Iraq by claiming that his intervention transformed failure into success.

Maliki's advisers have persuaded him that Obama will win - but the prime minister worries about the senator's "political debt to the anti-war lobby" - which is determined to transform Iraq into a disaster to prove that toppling Saddam Hussein was "the biggest strategic blunder in US history."

Other prominent Iraqi leaders, such as Vice President Adel Abdul-Mahdi and Kurdish regional President Massoud Barzani, believe that Sen. John McCain would show "a more realistic approach to Iraqi issues."

Obama has given Iraqis the impression that he doesn't want Iraq to appear anything like a success, let alone a victory, for America. The reason? He fears that the perception of US victory there might revive the Bush Doctrine of "pre-emptive" war - that is, removing a threat before it strikes at America.

Despite some usual equivocations on the subject, Obama rejects pre-emption as a legitimate form of self -defense. To be credible, his foreign-policy philosophy requires Iraq to be seen as a failure, a disaster, a quagmire, a pig with lipstick or any of the other apocalyptic adjectives used by the American defeat industry in the past five years.

Yet Iraq is doing much better than its friends hoped and its enemies feared. The UN mandate will be extended in December, and we may yet get an agreement on the status of forces before President Bush leaves the White House in January.

Wild Thing's comment..........

This is huge (and serious) -- Iraqi Foreign Minister says Obamessiah tried to interfere with negotiations about the status of forces agreement and impending US troop withdrawals to try to push everything later..... he claims he wants troop withdrawals but he interfered to try to prevent any progress before the election.

Report is that Obama tried to derail impending decisions on troop withdrawals and status-of-forces agreement, obviously to benefit his own political prospects!!!! If this is not treason it is the first cousin of treason. Working privately to try to derail official US govt. negotiations in a WAR zone over such highly sensitive and important matters.

"Obama insisted that Congress should be involved in negotiations on the status of US troops "

Oh, dear God help us. He's got absolutely no clue about the separation of the executive and legislative branches, and which one is actually the commander-in-chief. We CANNOT let this bozo Obambi get into power. His stupidity is simply overwhelming.

Another paragraph in the article sums up what is going on, although of course Obama will try to deny it:

"Obama has given Iraqis the impression that he doesn't want Iraq to appear anything like a success, let alone a victory, for America. The reason? He fears that the perception of US victory there might revive the Bush Doctrine of "pre-emptive" war - that is, removing a threat before it strikes at America."

The Logan Act makes it a felony and provides for a prison sentence of up to three years for any American, “without authority of the United States,” to communicate with a foreign government in an effort to influence that government’s behavior on any “disputes or controversies with the United States.”

I cannot express the seething rage I feel right now towards that arrogant little parasite.

There is also this:

Face to face with Iraq's leaders, Barack Obama gained fresh support yesterday for the idea of pulling all U.S. combat forces out of the war zone by 2010. But the Iraqis stopped short of actual timetables or endorsement of Obama's pledge to withdraw troops within 16 months if he wins the presidency.

Obama was over there directly undermining the White House's current negotiations:

The White House expressed unhappiness about Iraqi leaders' apparent public backing for Obama's troop-withdrawal plans and suggested the Iraqis may be trying to use the U.S. presidential election as leverage for negotiations on the United States' presence and future obligations in the country.
“We don't think that talking about specific negotiating tactics or your negotiating position in the press is the best way to negotiate a deal,” White House press secretary Dana Perino said after al-Maliki was quoted in a magazine article supporting Obama's proposed 16-month troop withdrawal timeline. Al-Maliki's spokesman, al-Dabbagh, initially appeared to try to discredit the magazine report but yesterday expressed anew hopes that U.S. combat forces could be out of Iraq by 2010.
The Bush administration has refused to set specific troop-level targets but last week offered to discuss a “general time horizon” for a U.S. combat troop exit.


Obama Plans Trip Pre-Election Day Visit to Iraq and Afghanistan

Among the issues being discussed with the two presidential candidates is the long-term security accord between Iraq and the United States. While the Bush administration would like to see an agreement reached before the summer’s political conventions, Mr. Obama said today that he opposed such a timetable.

“My concern is that the Bush administration, in a weakened state politically, ends up trying to rush an agreement that in some ways might be binding to the next administration, whether it’s my administration or Senator McCain’s administration,” Mr. Obama said. “The foreign minister agreed that the next administration should not be bound by an agreement that’s currently made.”

Obama doesn’t deserve to have a shack on a city dump with this kind of Traitorous Behavior, Obama is SCUM! Trying yet to bring DEFEAT TO IRAQ solely for HIS SUCCESS! Obama, who’s name we dont really know, and who’s citizenship we are denied knowledge of is a DISGUSTING, PERVERTED, RADICAL MUSLIM TERRORIST!!!

This has been on Drudge, Rush talked about it and also Rush mentioned possible Logan Act violation, Mark Levin talked about it as well, Fox News, and online Fox news has it, and Fox and Friends and in the links I have posted in the above information. It's also on Yahoo as the most ‘blogged story’ !!! GOOD! The power of the internet and conservative talk shows and some at Fox too.

I hope it gets more legs and not put aside but brought out more and more into the open. I know, no, we all know how the media will stand by Obama no matter what. But there are stilll some holdouts that have character and love America and we all know that too. Those are the ones we need to hope and pray make this what it is HUGE news.

Could this be even beyond The Logan Act if it’s about an ongoing war? Why not treason?

Oba,a's camp denial. They are blaming the Iraqi for misunderstanding BO! ( Politico ) SHEESH in the article they bring up McCain and he has absolutely NOTHING to do with this story at all.

Obam Denial posted at Fox

Obama camp calling Iraqi FM a liar.... by implication (or else Taheri got it wrong?)..... boy, I hope Taheri has his ducks in a row, that the Iraqi FM stands by the statement, that this story does simply melt away in a "he said, he said" cloud.

Rush transcript

On Summer Trip to Iraq, Obama Tried to Delay US Troop Pullout

RUSH: Amir Taheri today in the New York Post, a damning piece, but typical. This tells us everything we want to know about The Messiah, Barack Obama, the Lord, the Most Merciful One. "While campaigning in public for a speedy withdrawal of US troops from Iraq, Sen. Barack Obama has tried in private to persuade Iraqi leaders to delay an agreement on a draw-down of the American military presence. According to Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari, Obama made his demand for delay a key theme of his discussions with Iraqi leaders in Baghdad in July." Mike, grab One Night in Baghdad from the parody archive songs from Shanklin. Let me know when you've dug it out there. "'He asked why we were not prepared to delay an agreement until after the US elections and the formation of a new administration in Washington,' Zebari said in an interview. Obama insisted that Congress should be involved in negotiations on the status of US troops - and that it was in the interests of both sides not to have an agreement negotiated by the Bush administration in its 'state of weakness and political confusion.' ... Obama has made many contradictory statements with regard to Iraq. His latest position is that US combat troops should be out by 2010. Yet his effort to delay an agreement would make that withdrawal deadline impossible to meet. ... According to Zebari, the envisaged time span is two or three years - departure in 2011 or 2012. That would let Iraq hold its next general election, the third since liberation, and resolve a number of domestic political issues. Even then, the dates mentioned are only 'notional,' making the timing and the cadence of withdrawal conditional on realities on the ground as appreciated by both sides."

Now, you might be saying, "What's the big deal about this?" Well, two things. Number one, Obama has been clamoring for these troops to get out of there now, now, now. Obama was part of the cabal that wanted defeat of the US military this year. He wanted defeat of the US military this year. He wanted them out this year. He wanted to hang defeat around the neck of George W. Bush and run against that. Now all of a sudden he wants a delay in the withdrawal of troops so that he can say he did it and fulfill a campaign pledge to the kook fringe. What does this remind you of? Here we have a genuine October Surprise story. Remember when they falsely accused George Bush 41 of going over to Paris to make sure the Iranians kept the US hostages until after the November election 1980 so that Reagan would get the credit. There was never any basis for that story, just the seriousness of the charge, there was never any basis to the truth of that story and yet here's Obama doing exactly what Democrats accused George Bush 41 of doing in 1980. What a slimeball! You people on the left, do you understand your guy wants troops in Iraq until at least 2012 now, if out then, so that he can be the guy in charge of saying "I got 'em out." I guess now we know what Obama did One Night in Baghdad.

We knew that Obama's summer trip was bad, but we had no idea he was playing games with our troops for his benefit. So he goes to Berlin, he trashes the country, skipped a visit to wounded soldiers when he was in Berlin, let's not forget this. And now we found out he's playing games with the lives of our troops, maybe even a Logan Act violation, going there and asking the Iraqi guy, as a mere senator, "Hey, can't you delay your political action here?" That trip overseas was a disaster. It was beginning of the end of the bloom coming off the rose. This is not experience, this is not judgment, this is change, but it's breaking a law and his faith with his followers and our troops. Barack Obama asking the Iraqi foreign minister to keep US troops longer than the commanders on the ground think they are needed. Stop and think of that!


McCain Responds to Obama's Reported Undermining of the Commander-In-Chief During Wartime

The McCain Campaign has issued a statement responding to the report from Amer Taheri that Sen. Obama secretly negotiated with the Iraqi government regarding U.S. withdrawal from Iraq. McCain spokesman Randy Scheunemann stated as follows:

At this point, it is not yet clear what official American negotiations Senator Obama tried to undermine with Iraqi leaders, but the possibility of such actions is unprecedented. It should be concerning to all that he reportedly urged that the democratically-elected Iraqi government listen to him rather than the US administration in power. If news reports are accurate, this is an egregious act of political interference by a presidential candidate seeking political advantage overseas. Senator Obama needs to reveal what he said to Iraq's Foreign Minister during their closed door meeting. The charge that he sought to delay the withdrawal of Americans from Iraq raises serious questions about Senator Obama's judgment and it demands an explanation.

Rangel Being ( Maybe) Being Told To Step Down From Committee Chair

Pelosi Asks Rangel To Step Down From Committee Chair

New York Post

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi yesterday privately pushed Rep. Charlie Rangel to give up his chairmanship of the influential House tax-rules committee amid explosive revelations that his personal tax filings were riddled with errors and omissions, a wellplaced source said.

Rangel, the Democratic chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, has been resisting growing calls to step down from the high-profile leadership role since The Post reported the Harlem congressman failed to disclose rental income from his Dominican Republic beach home.

Rangel subsequently admitted owing at least $10,000 in back taxes and became a target of Republican political attacks.

One member of the New York congressional delegation who supported Pelosi's decision said, "You have to have one standard - you can't have one for [Republicans] and one for us."

Rangel himself remained mum on his sitdown with Pelosi after exiting a later, separate meeting with fellow Democratic committee members.

"I am unable to say anything," he said before bizarrely rattling off his name, rank and serial number from his Korean War days. "Do to me what you want, I'm not talking."

The 76-year-old politician smiled when asked if he was still chairman of the powerful tax panel.

Pelosi later denied through spokesperson Nadeam Elshami that she has asked Rangel to step aside.

And a committee member, Rep. Sander Levin (D-Mich.), asked if Rangel was still in charge, replied, "You're damn right he's the chairman."

But in an indication that Rangel may have to fight to keep his position, he scheduled an emergency meeting with the New York delegation today, a source said.

Meanwhile, Rangel was still using his leadership position as an inspirational tale for kids at Harlem's Democracy Prep Charter School yesterday.

"It was that education that took a 23-year-old high-school dropout to the Ways and Means Committee," he said.

Rangel's lawyer said the congressman would hire a forensic accountant to review his tax filings over the past 20 years.

He also may have to account for why he didn't properly disclose the sale of a Washington, DC, home in 2000, the various values he placed on his former Sunny Isles, Fla., condo, and the wild fluctuations he recorded for his personal investments.

Wild Thing's comment..........

Rangel stepping down? I'll believe it when I see it.

What crooks the dems are if even the NYSlimes points it out. And whatever happened to William Jefferson, D-Freezer, and his 90K graft money?

Culture of Corruption.

Most Ethical Congress in History.

Right, Queen Nancy?

And speaking of corruption I wonder when will Reid have the courage to fire Senator Dodd from the banking committee? He received sweetheart loans from banks over which he supposedly had oversight. He received hundreds of thousands in campaign donations—more than any other senator— from Fannie Mae and Fannie Mac. He needs to leave that committee. The corrupt son of a corrupt father.

Another Of Obama's Bill Ayers Associations

Who is Mike Klonsky?

Mike Klonsky, an Obama supporter and former associate of the radicals who formed the terrorist group the Weatherman, received a $175,000 grant from the William Ayers/Barack Obama-led Annenberg Challenge to run the Small Schools Workshop.

Klonsky belonged to the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) and was best friends with friends William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn who later became famous for their acts of terrorism.
This was at his blog on the Obama website:

How these people work their lies:
On May 12, 1969, Klonsky and four other SDSers were arrested at the organization's Chicago national headquarters for assaulting a police officer, interfering with a firefighter, and inciting mob action[/b]. A prank call to a local police station said there had been a shooting at SDS' offices. When the police arrived, Klonsky and the others were convinced it was a ruse to gain access to SDS' offices.[1] Klonsky convinced the police everything was fine, when a second prank call brought local firefighters to the scene. When the police attempted to force entry to the offices, Klonsky and the others resisted. Convinced state repression of SDS was coming, Klonsky told a national television audience on CBS' "Face the Nation" that police repression of the New Left was being planned by the U.S. Department of Justice.

In late 1969, Klonsky founded the October League, a communist party which in 1977 became the Communist Party, Marxist-Leninist. He was elected the party's chairman. The group opposed Gay Liberation and supported the regime of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, Shah of Iran. Klonsky made several trips to China beginning in July 1977, where he was warmly received by government and Communist Party of China officials and treated to state dinners.

Meet Obama's new Bill Ayers associate

Ex-communist leader tied to terrorist eliminated from campaign website

wnd ....for complete article

The official campaign website of Sen. Barack Obama has completely scrubbed a series of user-generated blog postings on the candidate's site by a former top communist activist who is an associate of former Weathermen terrorist leader William Ayers.

The move has raised questions regarding Obama's relationship with the deleted blogger, Mike Klonsky, who runs an education organization that was founded by Ayers and that received a substantial grant from a group directed by Obama.

Obama's official site allows registered users to form groups and post content in online "community" blogs. The site boasts tens of thousands of such community blogs. Obama's spokesmen previously have stated the campaign does not monitor all content posted on the blogs, but it promptly removes any content brought to its attention that is deemed inappropriate or hateful.

Klonsky posted several blog pieces on Obama's site on education policy that did not contain what can be described as hateful material, but his postings were entirely deleted in June after several independent bloggers noted Klonsky's connections to Obama and Ayers.

Klonsky is director of the Small Schools Workshop, an outreach program founded in 1991 by Ayers with the stated goal of providing support for teachers who want to create smaller learning environments. Ayers reportedly recruited Klonsky to head the Workshop.

Klonsky served with Ayers and Ayer's wife, former Weathermen terrorist Bernadine Dohrn, in the Students for a Democratic Society group.

In the 1970s, Klonsky became a top communist activist and leader of the Marxist-Leninist Communist Party.

He reportedly identified as a Maoist, and traveled in 1977 to Beijing, where he held friendly meetings with the Chinese leadership.

In a brief conversation with WND yesterday, Klonsky would not state whether he is still a communist. He did not deny his associations with Ayers or his communist activism in the 1970s.

Klonsky's blog postings were removed from Obama site during a period the presidential candidate has been repeatedly questioned about his relationship with Ayers, who is currently a professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago and was a member of the Weathermen group, which sought to overthrow the U.S. government and took responsibility for bombing the U.S. Capitol in 1971.

Ayers has admitted to involvement in the bombings of U.S. governmental buildings in the 1970s.

Ayers told the New York Times in an interview released Sept. 11, 2001, "I don't regret setting bombs. I feel we didn't do enough." He posed for a photograph accompanying the piece stepping on an American flag.

Last week, Ayers wrote on his blog he still feels not enough was done to oppose the Vietnam War, although he clarified, "I don't think violent resistance is necessarily the answer, but I do think opposition and refusal is imperative."

Wild Thing's comment........

Obama and his campaign have been allowing these people and many others like this Mike Klonosky to have their community blogs at his campaign website. And this so called man wants to be President of the USA? God help us all if he wins.

We will see these kinds of people staying in the Lincoln bedroom, walking in the halls of our White House and dining on our tax dollars at State dinners. Then add in their influence on Obama that he obvioulsy sees nothing wrong in associating with them.

Mike Klonsky - Communist leader...and along with Bill Ayers, promoter of American terrorism, created a school workshop that received a grant from the Annenberg Challenge, the Chicago branch created by Bill Ayers and had Barack Obama as president and chairman, and now Klonsky gets his own little blog on Obama's offical website...

Very conerning to know about these things and why on earth people do not want to wake up and see how Obama is imo the enemy of our country.

....Thank you Mark for sending this article to me.

"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity.
The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property - either as a child, a wife, or a concubine - must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen: all know how to die. But the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world.
Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytising faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science - the science against which it had vainly struggled - the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome.”

- Winston Churchill


Revealed: UK’s first official sharia courts


ISLAMIC law has been officially adopted in Britain, with sharia courts given powers to rule on Muslim civil cases.

The government has quietly sanctioned the powers for sharia judges to rule on cases ranging from divorce and financial disputes to those involving domestic violence.

Rulings issued by a network of five sharia courts are enforceable with the full power of the judicial system, through the county courts or High Court.

Previously, the rulings of sharia courts in Britain could not be enforced, and depended on voluntary compliance among Muslims.

It has now emerged that sharia courts with these powers have been set up in London, Birmingham, Bradford and Manchester with the network’s headquarters in Nuneaton, Warwickshire. Two more courts are being planned for Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Sheikh Faiz-ul-Aqtab Siddiqi, whose Muslim Arbitration Tribunal runs the courts, said he had taken advantage of a clause in the Arbitration Act 1996.

Under the act, the sharia courts are classified as arbitration tribunals. The rulings of arbitration tribunals are binding in law, provided that both parties in the dispute agree to give it the power to rule on their case.

Siddiqi said: “We realised that under the Arbitration Act we can make rulings which can be enforced by county and high courts. The act allows disputes to be resolved using alternatives like tribunals. This method is called alternative dispute resolution, which for Muslims is what the sharia courts are.”

The disclosure that Muslim courts have legal powers in Britain comes seven months after Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury, was pilloried for suggesting that the establishment of sharia in the future “seems unavoidable” in Britain.

In July, the head of the judiciary, the lord chief justice, Lord Phillips, further stoked controversy when he said that sharia could be used to settle marital and financial disputes.

In fact, Muslim tribunal courts started passing sharia judgments in August 2007. They have dealt with more than 100 cases that range from Muslim divorce and inheritance to nuisance neighbours.

It has also emerged that tribunal courts have settled six cases of domestic violence between married couples, working in tandem with the police investigations.

Siddiqi said he expected the courts to handle a greater number of “smaller” criminal cases in coming years as more Muslim clients approach them. “All we are doing is regulating community affairs in these cases,” said Siddiqi, chairman of the governing council of the tribunal.

Jewish Beth Din courts operate under the same provision in the Arbitration Act and resolve civil cases, ranging from divorce to business disputes. They have existed in Britain for more than 100 years, and previously operated under a precursor to the act.

Politicians and church leaders expressed concerns that this could mark the beginnings of a “parallel legal system” based on sharia for some British Muslims.

Dominic Grieve, the shadow home secretary, said: “If it is true that these tribunals are passing binding decisions in the areas of family and criminal law, I would like to know which courts are enforcing them because I would consider such action unlawful. British law is absolute and must remain so.”

Douglas Murray, the director of the Centre for Social Cohesion, said: “I think it’s appalling. I don’t think arbitration that is done by sharia should ever be endorsed or enforced by the British state.”

There are concerns that women who agree to go to tribunal courts are getting worse deals because Islamic law favours men.

Siddiqi said that in a recent inheritance dispute handled by the court in Nuneaton, the estate of a Midlands man was divided between three daughters and two sons.

The judges on the panel gave the sons twice as much as the daughters, in accordance with sharia. Had the family gone to a normal British court, the daughters would have got equal amounts.

In the six cases of domestic violence, Siddiqi said the judges ordered the husbands to take anger management classes and mentoring from community elders. There was no further punishment.

In each case, the women subsequently withdrew the complaints they had lodged with the police and the police stopped their investigations.

Siddiqi said that in the domestic violence cases, the advantage was that marriages were saved and couples given a second chance.

Inayat Bunglawala, assistant secretary-general of the Muslim Council of Britain, said: “The MCB supports these tribunals. If the Jewish courts are allowed to flourish, so must the sharia ones.”


Wild Thing's comment.............

This is a bad, bad thing. Rule Britannia. Not. Rue Britannia. Adios, England. It was jolly good while it lasted. Good Bye to a once great nation, and may the chains of enslavement rest lightly. However once the chains are about your shoulders, the master without fail will tighten the chains of power and your great nation will cease to exist.

"The rulings of arbitration tribunals are binding in law, provided that both parties in the dispute agree to give it the power to rule on their case."

A person would have to be a serious moron to submit to Sharia rather than British law.

It is wrong to put temptation in the path of any nation,
For fear they should succumb and go astray;
So when you are requested to pay up or be molested,
You will find it better policy to say: --

"We never pay any-one Dane-geld,
No matter how trifling the cost;
For the end of that game is oppression and shame,
And the nation that pays it is lost!"

'Hard-core Democrat' Jilll Greenberg Photographer Boasts Tricking McCain For Horror Pic

Magazine photographer shoots McCain to look like monster

'Hard-core Democrat' boasts she tricked candidate into horror pic


When the Atlantic sought a portrait of GOP presidential nominee John McCain for the cover of its October 2008 issue, the magazine called self-described "hard-core Democrat" Jill Greenberg, who took the opportunity to purposefully make McCain look bad, including snapping a shot in which the candidate looms like a horror-movie monster.

Photo of Jill Greenberg

"Some of my artwork has been pretty anti-Bush, so maybe it was somewhat irresponsible for them [The Atlantic] to hire me.” - Jill Greenberg

Greenberg, whose website – – advertises her heavily retouched photography style, told the editors of Photo District News that she chose to omit even a standard, complimentary retouching of McCain's photos.

"I left his eyes red and his skin looking bad," she said.

According to a report in PDNPulse, a professional photography blog by the editors of Photo District News, Greenberg tricked McCain during the photo shoot in early August into thinking he was lit by a modeling light, when in reality, the lighting was rigged from below to make McCain look awful.

The lighting effect caused by a strobe positioned below McCain cast large, dark shadows on the wall behind him, and the camera angle made him look more like actor Boris Karloff in the black-and-white movie Frankenstein than a presidential candidate.

"He had no idea," said Greenberg in the PDNPulse interview.

Ultimately, the Atlantic didn't choose the Frankenstein photo, opting for a different cover shot, but Greenberg proudly displays the monster shot on her website and reportedly is hoping to license it to another magazine.

And look at this............................

Photo District News

After getting that shot, Greenberg asked McCain to “please come over here” for one more set-up before the 15-minute shoot was over. There, she had a beauty dish with a modeling light set up. “That’s what he thought he was being lit by,” Greenberg says. “But that wasn’t firing.”

What was firing was a strobe positioned below him, which cast the horror movie shadows across his face and on the wall right behind him. “He had no idea he was being lit from below,” Greenberg says. And his handlers didn’t seem to notice it either. “I guess they’re not very sophisticated,” she adds.

The Atlantic didn’t select the diabolical looking McCain for its cover.

Greenberg is hoping to license that image to some other magazine (she negotiated a two-week embargo with The Atlantic so she could re-license images from the shoot before the election).

Warned that the image is just the kind of thing that will stir up the anti-media vitriol in the conservative blogosphere, Greenberg said, “Good. I want to stir stuff up, but not to the point where I get audited if he becomes president.”
That said, she goes on to explain that she’s thought about replacing McCain’s mouth with bloody shark teeth and displaying the image on a billboard with the message that the candidate is a bloodthirsty war monger.

Given her strong feelings about John McCain, we asked whether she had any reservations about taking the assignment in the first place.

“I didn’t,” she says. “It’s definitely exciting to shoot someone who is in the limelight like that. I am a pretty hard core Democrat. Some of my artwork has been pretty anti-Bush, so maybe it was somewhat irresponsible for them [The Atlantic] to hire me.”

There are more photos at this LINK ....just scroll down, they enlarge when clicked on. Totally sick!!! She adds shark teeth and fake blood and another one of an ape going to the bathroom over McCain's head. disgusting!


Wild Thing's comment.........

It was impossible for Jill Greenburg to set aside her political fanaticism just long enough to be a professional photographer. It's one thing if she wants a photo to turn her political view on like many of us do with graphics and images all the time. It is another thing to be hired for a job and disrespect that job and the advertisers with the magazine in what she did.

Thank God she was not asked to take Sarah Palin's photo. I hate to think what she would do with that assignment.

At her site it was very weird. Why on earth would people want photos of crying babies. Adorable precious babies crying,. That is so horrible to me, to make a child cry like at anytime, and it appears she did it just for a phoptograph???? GRRRRRRRRRRRR

Charlie Gibson is the New Dan Rather

L.A. Times rebukes ABC for distorting Palin remarks

Charlie Gibson misquotes governor, assuming she saw U.S. in 'holy war'


The Los Angeles Times was among the news outlets crying foul after ABC's interview yesterday with Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, her first since Sen. John McCain named her his running mate.

The Times took Charlie Gibson to task for distorting statements Palin made about the Iraq war at her former Assemblies of God church in Wasilla, Alaska.

A well-circulated video shows Palin asking the congregation to pray that the nation's leaders would send troops to Iraq "on a task that is from God." But Gibson, apparently getting his information from an Associated Press story, frames the question with the assumption Palin is contending the U.S. was sending troops to Iraq on a mission from God.

"Are we fighting a holy war?" Gibson asked.

Palin disputed the characterization, pointing out she was paraphrasing Abraham Lincoln, who said, "Let us not pray that God is on our side in a war or any other time, but let us pray that we are on God’s side."

The Times said Gibson "went on to take a second part of her comments out of context. Palin had asked the group to pray 'that there is a plan, and that plan is God's plan.'"

But Gibson dropped her reference to praying, the Times said, and instead quoted Palin as saying the war was God's plan.

He asked if she believed the country was sending her son on a task from God.

"I don't know if the task is from God, Charlie," she responded, adding that she was proud of Track for "serving something greater than himself."

New York Times TV critic Alessandra Stanley said that during the interview, Gibson, who "sat back in his chair, impatiently wriggling his foot," had "the skeptical, annoyed tone of a university president who agrees to interview the daughter of a trustee but doesn’t believe she merits admission."

The McCain campaign also criticized ABC's characterization of Palin's statements.

"Gov. Palin's full statement was VERY different from the way Gibson characterized it," McCain spokesman Tucker Bounds said in a prepared statement.

"Gibson cut the quote — where she was clearly asking for the church TO PRAY THAT IT IS a task from God, not asserting that it is a task from God," he said.

"Palin's statement is an incredibly humble statement, a statement that this campaign stands by 100 percent, and a sentiment that any religious American will share," Bounds wrote.

Much was made by many pundits of Palin's apparent inability to recognize the term "Bush Doctrine."

But columnist Dan Froomkin of the Washington Post said he's "not sure anyone is entirely clear on what the Bush Doctrine is at this particular moment."

Mike Rappaport of the blog Right Coast called Gibson's approach "bad form and bad journalism," asking whether she agrees with the doctrine, without defining it. Rappaport pointed to Wikipedia's entry on the Bush Doctrine, which documents that it's a phrase associated with several different foreign policy positions and strategies.

For the rest of the article........... LINK HERE


Wild Thing's comment...........

Gibson should just admit he was acting as a surrogate for Obama. This is media bias at is worst! They tried hard to do a deliberate deception.

To their dissapointment I am sure they still failed at making Sarah look like an airhead. They failed at getting what they wanted... even in the edited interview she still came across as calm, likable and knowledgeable.

And this will not be the end of their dirty tricks. The debates are coming and the emphasis in the debates will be how to destroy McCain and Palin.

Obama is a total coward and so far will not meet McCain in a Townhall meeting. COWARD OBAMA!!!!!!!

If Republican candidates on any level continue to do taped interviews which I am totally against.......then Republican politicians need to go into these interviews with their own video crew. Even if it’s just an Aide with a video camera and they need to document every minute of it. Then when the press pulls this they need to release their own version of the interview. The press has gotten away with this stuff for too long.

Otherwise ONLY do LIVE interviews period!

ABC also not only edited the interview for content, but, they also blatantly edited the visuals by using using jump cuts.

I sent an email off and will put the LINK HERE in case anyone else would like to too.

The show I sent it to was 20/20

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

Palin Power Comes to Big D ~ Oct. 3rd


Sarah Palin to visit Dallas on Oct. 3

WFAA Dallas / Fort Worth channel 8

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is scheduled to visit Dallas on Oct. 3 for a fundraiser and possibly a public rally.

Since becoming the Republican nominee for vice president, Ms. Palin has electrified the GOP base and helped John McCain surge in the polls. Local Republicans on Thursday were ecstatic that she’s coming to town.

“It’s a huge opportunity for Palin to be introduced to the people of Dallas who have seen her on television,” said Jonathan Neerman, chairman of the Dallas County Republican Party.

Ms. Palin will participate in a lunchtime fundraiser at the Fairmont Hotel. Tickets will cost $1,000 a plate. The top level being asked for host committee is about $57,000.

The money is being raised for the Republican National Committee.

Mr. McCain has opted for public financing for the general election campaign and does not have to raise campaign funds.

Mr. Neerman said he would try to get Ms. Palin to attend a separate event to introduce her to county Republicans who are not donors.

“We want her to do something with our grass-roots activists,” he said.

The Oct. 3 event, which will be one day after the vice presidential debate, would be Ms. Palin’s first trip to Texas since attending a Republican Governors Association meeting in Grapevine last April.

This has a tiny bit more information:

Palin to Stomp in Dallas at October Fundraiser

MY Fox Dallas Fort Worth

The Dallas Morning News reported in its online edition Thursday the Alaska governor will attend a lunchtime fundraiser at the Fairmont Hotel on Oct. 3, a day after the vice presidential debate.

The fundraiser benefits the Republican National Committee.

Jonathan Neerman, chairman of the Dallas County Republican Party, said it's a huge opportunity for Palin to be introduced to the people of Dallas.

Neerman hopes he can get Palin to attend a separate event for county Republicans who are not donors.

It will be her first Texas trip since she attended a Republican Governors Association meeting in Grapevine last Ap

Wild Thing's comment.........

Fingers are crossed here they do the grass-roots rally too, that would be sooo awesome! If they do, ( and my guess is they will ) they would have such a huge rally in that area.

I lived in Dallas for 5 years and that is where I met Bob Hope. So Dallas will always hold a very special place in my heart and all the other things I loved about Texas.

Obama Put On Hot Seat After Girl Scout Troop Told NO

A penny saved is another penny wasted by the O campaign ...what a total waste this bs was that wanna be god like Obama insisted on having for his sick speech

Obama campaign patches up goof with Naperville Girl Scouts

Chicago Tribune

After some prodding, staff donates items for 2nd-graders' political lesson

Jon Yates | What's Your Problem?
September 10, 2008

Michelle Walsh wanted to teach her 2nd-grade Girl Scout troop about the presidential election.

What the Naperville mother got was a lesson about the rough-and-tumble world of political finances.

Walsh said she called both campaigns and asked for free trinkets she could give the 7-year-olds to help them learn. If they did well, she explained, each Scout would earn her "Ms. President" patch. The tchotchkes would provide added incentive.

A representative for John McCain responded immediately, sending Walsh a box filled with stickers and signs.

The Barack Obama camp wasn't quite so generous, Walsh said.

The troop leader said she called Obama's Chicago campaign headquarters and explained why she needed the curios. Walsh said she was directed to Obama's Web site—where she could buy all the buttons and posters she wanted.
On the Web, a packet of 50 stickers that say "Obama '08" goes for $5; a yard sign is $8. "Got Hope?" bumper stickers are $3 each, or two for $5.

Walsh found the prices a bit exorbitant her small group.

She said she asked Obama's campaign worker again if she could get a few items for free. She pointed out that McCain's camp had agreed to send a box and, well, her 12-member Scout troop runs on a very small budget.
Walsh said the woman at Obama's headquarters put her on hold. After a few minutes, she returned with the same answer. The woman told her that she sympathized, but the Obama campaign needs every penny it can get, Walsh said.
"She said, 'We're up against the machine and we just can't hand anything out for free,' " Walsh said. "She was very nice . . . but I wasn't getting anything."
The woman then directed Walsh to another spot on Obama's Web site where she could print out pages for the girls to color on, she said.

Instead, Walsh e-mailed What's Your Problem?

"I was very surprised," Walsh said. "I thought this was a no-brainer. Especially since McCain's camp responded without a thought."

How, Walsh wondered, could a campaign that has raised roughly $400 million be so stingy?

Walsh said she was determined to remain impartial. "My whole point was I did get something from McCain. I can't even hand out the McCain items without something from the Obama side as well," she said.

The Problem Solver called Obama spokesman Justin DeJong.

Within days, an Obama employee personally delivered Walsh a box of pins, magnets and bracelets with the slogans "Hope" and "Obama."

DeJong said that whoever took Walsh's call at the campaign headquarters misspoke.

"Each day, we go out of our way to accommodate requests for signs, stickers and other items," DeJong said. "We're unsure who took Ms. Walsh's call."

The spokesman said Obama's Illinois campaign staff has also offered to meet with the Girl Scout troop to talk to them about the importance of the election.

Walsh said she declined the invitation because she would then feel obligated to bring in someone from McCain's campaign as well. That seemed a tad much for 7-year-olds, she said.

Included with the box of trinkets Obama's campaign gave Walsh was a letter from Obama wishing the girls good luck working on their "Ms. President" patches.

The woman who delivered the materials to Walsh's house was extremely nice, Walsh said.

Still, Walsh questioned why Obama's campaign didn't just send the materials when she first asked.

"I thought it was a little ridiculous," Walsh said. "I guess I don't understand what the problem was."

Wild Thing's comment..........

"DeJong said that whoever took Walsh's call at the campaign headquarters misspoke."

Is it only me or is anyone else sick of the new llingo of the use of the word "misspoke". WTF

Let's see how about this.......I HATE the left..... oh dear I must have ( holding my fingers in the air as quotation marks ) "misspoke " ........I mean I find they are not on my A list of people I like and want to dine with.


The truth is they got caught! hahaha

The Money Quote:

Walsh said the woman at Obama's headquarters put her on hold. After a few minutes, she returned with the same answer. The woman told her that she sympathized, but the Obama campaign needs every penny it can get, Walsh said.

Proof Obama Does Not Honor Free Speech

Media takes a hit from Obama - Silencing the Loyal Americans

Obama states that Washington doesn't listen to the people but then turns around and censors out the voices of Americans on his Youtube account that don't praise him or serve his race card.

Wild Thing's comment..........

It is one thing to have a blog as a private citizen and need to censor spam comments. It is another thing to be a Presidential candidate and not allow the American people to leave a commnet, ask a question, rant or cheer at one of the Candidates sites.

Very tellling! B. Hussein Obama will ONLY allow the kiss up''s to leave a comment.

Listen up America this is a good example of what would be in the future for American citizens if this man of low class, void of character is voted in as President.

Jonah Goldberg

The day after 9/11, as part of its "get tough" makeover, the Obama campaign is mocking John McCain for not using a computer, without caring why he doesn't use a computer. From the AP story about the computer illiterate ad:

"Our economy wouldn't survive without the Internet, and cyber-security continues to represent one our most serious national security threats," [Obama spokesman Dan] Pfeiffer said. "It's extraordinary that someone who wants to be our president and our commander in chief doesn't know how to send an e-mail."

Can ALSO be seen at Obama's website

I guess it depends on what you mean by "extraordinary." The reason he doesn't send email is that he can't use a keyboard because of the relentless beatings he received from the Viet Cong in service to our country. From the Boston Globe (March 4, 2000):

McCain gets emotional at the mention of military families needing food stamps or veterans lacking health care. The outrage comes from inside: McCain's severe war injuries prevent him from combing his hair, typing on a keyboard, or tying his shoes. Friends marvel at McCain's encyclopedic knowledge of sports. He's an avid fan - Ted Williams is his hero - but he can't raise his arm above his shoulder to throw a baseball.

In a similar vein I guess it's an outrage that the blind governor of New York David Patterson doesn't know how to drive a car. After all, transportation issues are pretty important. How dare he serve as governor while being ignorant of what it's like to navigate New York's highways.


From Forbes, and Ace of Spades

In certain ways, McCain was a natural Web candidate. Chairman of the Senate Telecommunications Subcommittee and regarded as the U.S. Senate's savviest technologist, McCain is an inveterate devotee of email. His nightly ritual is to read his email together with his wife, Cindy. The injuries he incurred as a Vietnam POW make it painful for McCain to type. Instead, he dictates responses that his wife types on a laptop. "She's a whiz on the keyboard, and I'm so laborious," McCain admits.

Wild Thing's comment.........


That is the sound of Obama's campaign hitting the windshield of the StraightTalkExpress.

What a colossal backfire for the Obama camp!

While HO-bama is renting football stadiums and handing out free beer, McCain has been dissecting him with sharp witty internet ads! Much of this campaign has been fought on YouTube, Bar-ack... And guess what? That old geezer you deride for not being able to send an e-mail has been kicking your tail all over not just YouTube, but cyberspace in general. Givce it up, Zero!

In one week Obama has managed to alienate half the women in America with his lipstick on a pig comment and now he is taking a shot at a war hero's disabilities.

The Obamanation is out of touch with the Internet function we call “google”. Ha! PRICELESS!!!

This insulting ad pretty much puts a fork in Obama’s vapid campaign. Obama is Insulting a disabled POW war Veteran and Veterans and servicemen and servicewomen of this country!!!!

Remember when the dems made fun of Dole holding a pen in the hand and arm he cannot use because of his war injuries?

I swear the left comes from a place beneath hell, that even hell is too good for them.

This ad serves to illuminate the state of the Obama campaign. They are falling apart at the seams.

The left has no class at all, none. They are violent, mean and cruel and could care less about out military and our Veterans.

Classic Rock ‘n’ Roll Band Visits CAB, Rocks Camp Taji

By Sgt. 1st Class Brent Hunt
Combat Aviation Brigade, 4th Infantry Division


In an effort to increase morale and bring the gift of music to Soldiers serving in Iraq, a rock ‘n’ roll band comprised of top-notch acts from the ‘70s and ‘80s visited Soldiers from the Combat Aviation Brigade, 4th Infantry Division, Multi-National Division – Baghdad, and performed a live concert on Camp Taji, Sept. 11, 2008.

The members of Big Noize, a band consisting of members from Deep Purple, Rainbow, Ozzy Osbourne, Quiet Riot and AC/DC, were provided first-hand knowledge during the day on combat aviation operations throughout MND-B by Soldiers from the CAB.

Later that evening, the band provided everyone working and living on the camp first-hand knowledge on how to rock.

“I got this project together, named Big Noize, and this is a perfect mixture of guys,” said Joe Lynn Turner, lead singer for the band who also sang for Deep Purple and Rainbow. “This is something we wanted to do – to help the guys [service members stationed in Kuwait and Iraq]. Also, we wanted to show the people back in the U.S. and the whole world all the great things going on over here.
“This is a life-changing experience for us, and we want to let people know all the sacrifices you are making for world peace,” he said. “Most people don’t realize – ‘To have world peace, you have to make sacrifices.’ With all the rebuilding going on in this country, it is unbelievable. You are doing a great, great job. You guys are the real rock stars.”

During the day’s events, the band was escorted to the Camp Taji Airfield where Soldiers from the 1st Battalion, 4th Aviation Regiment, showed off one of the AH-64D Apache attack helicopters.

Then after spending more than an hour taking turns sitting in the cockpit and being shown how the combat aircraft operates, the band was whisked to the Apache helicopter simulator, where each rocker took turns flying combat missions in the high-tech piece of equipment.

“This [the simulator] is way harder than I thought it was going to be,” said Carlos Cavazo, lead guitar player for the band who also was one of the founding members of the ‘80s rock band Quiet Riot. “There is so much to think about when you are flying in the simulator.
“I’ve always wanted to be an Army guy, and being here for ten days gives me a brief chance to do that,” said the head banger, whose classic songs include “Metal Health” and “Come on Feel the Noize.” Quiet Riot was an American Band whose success in 1983 and 1984 contributed to launching the glam metal scene during the ‘80s.

During their visit, Big Noize visited service members stationed in Kuwait and Iraq for ten days and they put on five electric guitar-pumping shows. The band consists of Turner’s lead vocal talents, Phil Soussan, who played bass guitar for Ozzy Osbourne, Cavazo and Simon Wright, who played drums for AC/DC and Ronnie James Dio.

Camp Taji was the last gig on the bands world wind tour, where the group belted out heavy metal classics to a crowd of more than 300 screaming Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and civilians working on the dusty camp surrounded by Iraqi farmlands.

Some of the hits performed by the group were “Crazy Train,” originally sung by Osbourne, “Smoke on the Water,” originally performed by Deep Purple, “Hells Bells” originally performed by AC/DC, and “Holy Diver,” originally sung by Ronnie James Dio.

“I grew up on classic rock, and this concert is the biggest morale booster since I’ve been here,” said Pfc. Johnathan Shufeldt, 23, Company G, 2nd Bn., 4th Avn. Regt., CAB. “My favorite songs they performed were by Ronnie James Dio. They rock, and I love Dio. These types of events definitely help you blow off steam from the long work days.”

Wild Thing's comment.........

Thank you to Sgt. 1st Class Brent Hunt for a great write up and photos.

I just love how the bands talked about our troops and what it meant to them ( the bands) to be able to go there and meet our soldiers. There are some wonderful quotes on how they felt about it that mean a lot.

God bless our troops!

Gov.Sarah Palin Interview with Liberal Charlie Gibson Parts 1 and 2

Sarah Palin Interview with Charlie Gibson Part 1 of 2

Sarah Palin Interview with Charlie Gibson Part 2 of 2

Palin had a very brilliant answer when responding to Gibson's charge that she thinks the Iraq war is God's plan. She said:

"The reference there is a repeat of Abraham Lincoln's words when he said -- first, he suggested never presume to know what God's will is, and I would never presume to know God's will or to speak God's words.

But what Abraham Lincoln had said, and that's a repeat in my comments, was let us not pray that God is on our side in a war or any other time, but let us pray that we are on God's side.

That's what that comment was all about, Charlie."

Lou Dobbs on how Sarah Palin did: " I think Joe Biden better start hitting the books"

Wild Thing's comment............

Sarah Palin came across as smart, courageous, sophisticated, competent, prepared, and savvy.

Gibson came across as a Democrat Party partisan hack and a very ugly, nasty one at that.

Sarah Palin stood her ground. She did not allow this man to bully her--though he was trying to do so.

Sarah handled herself beautifully.

Charlie Gibson did not. Sarah Palin was authentic and real.

Charlie Gibson, on the other hand, blew his chance to have a meaningful interview and to explore who this woman is. It was nothing but a string of mostly meaningless 'gotcha' questions - all of which Sarah handled quite well.

Gibson is an elitist and he spent the whole interview looking down his nose and patronizing her.

What foreign policy experience does the Muslim Messiah have and why haven’t these slimeball reporters asked him those questions.???? IMO, Charlie Gibson is a biased horrible person who is showing his true Liberal colors! I’m disgusted by all these slimes. None of these buffoons are questioning the “community organizer’s” experience.

Charlie just didn't seem to get it. Terrorists bad, Charlie, once again, terrorists are bad. Those who fight terrorists and evil are GOOD. Did you need to ask Charlie or did you really not know?

You could see by her body language and the way she squinted her eyes that she was on to Gibson re the “gotcha” kind of questions. Sarah did not seem to let Gibson intimidate her. She sidestepped each and every one while wearing that smile on her face. You could see it in her eyes that she knew that he was trying to set her up and cause her to make a sound bite gaffe. It didn’t work out.

I think she did a great job.

Bottom line this was not an interview it was an interrogation!

This interview is supposed to air ABC Evening News, 20/20 on Friday ( tonight)

Just one more thing , this interview was done on the very day that Sarah and Todd's son was deployed. So adding that too to how she handled herself, it tells me Sarah can handle stress under pressure when it calls for being present and accounted for. FANTASTIC!

The following GOVERNORS have been elected PRESIDENT:

Thomas Jefferson
James Monroe
Martin Van Buren
Grover Cleveland
Theodore Roosevelt
Franklin Delano Roosevelt
James Polk
Andrew Johnson
Rutherford B Hayes
William McKinley
Woodrow Wilson
Calvin Coolidge
James Earl Carter
Ronald Wilson Reagan
William Jefferson Clinton
George Walker Bush

Charlie Gibson Past Interview Of B.Hussein Obama

Just to show the difference in how Gibson did his interview with Sarah Palin and how he did his interview with B. Hussein Obama. Careful Charlie your treatment of women is showing and it isn't pretty. Add in to that I guess Charlie can go pick up his good Commrade medal now from the communist/ socialist Democrat party any time now.

OH Charlie you are just soooo obvious! This video is a perfect example of a double standard....the tone...the attitude....Charlie’s smiles....body language.

Gov. Sarah Palin Son Track to Deploy To Iraq

Now 19, Private First Class Palin enlisted last year and is assigned to the 1st Stryker Brigade's Delta company. That's in Palin's home state. The Army says his being posted there was luck of the draw.

1st Stryker Brigade Combat Team

“He’s just like any other infantry soldier here,” said Army Col. Burt Thompson, who heads the 1st Stryker Brigade Combat Team at Fort Wainwright, Alaska. “He tries to remain as anonymous as he possibly can.”

In military parlance, Palin is a “dismount.” He and other soldiers operate armored vehicles called Strykers. Their job is to ensure brigade commanders and their communications remain protected as they move around the country. The Stryker is an eight-wheeled truck that weighs 19 tons. “They’re the secret service for the brigade commander,” said brigade spokesman Maj. Chris Hyde.

Republican vice presidential candidate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, is escorted by Col. Edward Daly, deputy commander of the U.S. Army in Alaska, after she spoke to the troops and families during a deployment ceremony for the 1st Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division at Fort Wainwright in Fairbanks, Alaska Thursday, Sept. 11, 2008. Palin's son Track Palin is a member of the brigade being deployed to Iraq.

911 - Ground Zero tribute - Sen. McCain vs. HUSSEIN Obama

Wild Thing's comment...........

The differences between McCain and Obama at ground zero marking the 7th anniversary of 911.

Obama threw his flowers into the reflecting pool and both John and Cindy McCain respectfully placed their bouquets.

McCain was accompanied by his charming wife, Cindy.

I also noticed that afterwards as the two were glad-handing the crowd, McCain talked to both the cops and the second liners in the crowd . One of the police or firemen not sure which gave a pin to John and Cindy and pined the pin on each of them. Many of the first liners pulled McCain close and whispered something in his ear. There was NO pin given to Obama and I am glad. With the comments he made after 911 the day after it happened I would not give him a pin either if I was a policeman or a firefighter.

There was also Obama’s rude behavior toward 3 of the 4 people who were standing in a receiving line. While Senator McCain and his wife and the mayor was greeting the 4 people and shaking their hands, Obama spent a lot of time speaking with the first woman; he gave her a pat or a nudge on the shoulder, as if in support.

And then he completely ignored the remaining 3 people: a woman, a man in a firefighters hat/cap, and a workman in a hardhat. They were standing there, expecting to shake his hand as he walked past them, but and he made an obvious detour to avoid them. It didn’t appear to be that he even made eye contact.

It was very embarrassing to watch.

Obama hasn’t the slightest idea of proper courtesy or protocol. He is a jerk.

The graciousness of both John and Cindy is in stark to Barack Hussein Obama. He needs to get some coaching from his left wing liberal friends. And the realness of the Mccains shaking hands, engaging the folks on the sidelines just proves the point again olf why John and Cindy belong in the White House and NOT the trashing America Obama couple.

McCain always looks people in the eye to speak with them and has that look of interest in what they are talking about. I notcied Obama does not, he does not have that look of really listening only the how do I respond to this next look instead.

Obama isnt worthy of shining John McCain’s shoes! and that is just a true fact! John must be ready to throw up having to deal with the POS! Obama must NOT BE ELECTED!

Obama was in NY since yesterday, and appeared on Letterman last night. This morning John McCain was in Shanksville, Pa. and spoke at the memorial. And what did Obama do? He met Bill Clinton for lunch at his Harlem’s office to plan campaign strategy. He spent more time with Bill Clinton working out campaign plans, than he did at Ground Zero. My take on him is that all the time he was there, he was thinking about getting it over with so he could move on to more important things. He wasn't very reverent, and acted flippant, like it was an inconvenience for him to be there...preoccupied.

Why am I making a big deal about the flower being thrown? Because everything matters......everything when a person is a public figure, when a person is running for President of our United States of America! Everything.

McCain is physically disabled to a certain degree, and yet he made every attempt to lean down as best he could and with shoulders not allowing much movement at all he reaches out to carefully and respectfully lay the flower down.

Obama who is NOT disabled in any way except his BRAIN made his choice to throw the flower like one would do if tossing a pebble in a pond or lake. That would not be bad except this was about showing respect and his actions simply did not.

If the media is going to give Obama a free pass as they have been doing on all things Obama then by God I will make sure I point the things out he does that should be brought to the front.

Obama should have organized a community ETIQUETTE class!

From Obama's book , "Audacity of Hope" : ’I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."

God is in the details.

Michelle Obama Missing From 9/11 Commemoration Ceremony In New York

Why Wasn't Michelle Obama at the 9/11 Ceremony?

Barack Hussein Obama was without his wife Michelle at the 9/11 commemoration ceremony yesterday in New York City.

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., was accompanied by his wife Cindy.

Where was Michelle?

Wild Thing's comment..........

The Obama campaign responded that Michelle was back in Chicago with her daughters Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7, since this is the first week of school.

I feel if her husband is running for President her place is next to him especially on something like this. They could afford someone to be with the children for a day when they got home from school.

I mean, here she is with this controversy surounding her comment “For the first time in my life I am proud to be an American...” and now she is conspicuously absent from the 9/11 memorial ceremony?

It makes you wonder what she was feeling on the morning of 9/12/01? Was she proud to be an American that day? And if so, where is she today?

I think people would have wanted to see her being proud to be an American at Ground Zero today. At best a lost opportunity in my worst, something far darker.

Cindy McCain Takes The Wheel In Her Own Race

Jack McCain, left, shown with his father, John, this past December, helped get his mother, Cindy, involved in drift racing.

Cindy McCain takes the wheel in her own race

ESPN sports special

There is also a VIDEO AT THIS LINK ........just CLICK TO SEE VIDEO

Cindy McCain doesn't remember all the details. It might have been six years ago. Maybe seven. But this much, at least, McCain recalls with perfect clarity: She was watching television with her oldest son, Jack, when footage flashed across the screen of race cars skidding sideways as though they were on ice.

Looks kind of cool, McCain thought to herself, but how'd they do that?

Drift racing, or "drifting," refers to a style of racing in which a driver intentionally skids the back of a car through turns, as shown in this 2006 drifting exhibition at the Toyota Grand Prix on the streets of Long Beach, Calif.

For most people, the curiosity probably would have ended there. But McCain, the wife of the Republican nominee for president, Sen. John McCain, is anything but ordinary. Although a wide swath of the public views her as reserved and distant, she is actually quite the opposite in private. When Cindy McCain, 54, encounters something that intrigues her, she embraces it with the zeal of a toddler on Christmas Eve.

And so McCain began to learn as much as possible about this mysterious driving technique. It turned out it was called drifting and had origins tracing back to the mountains of central Japan in the early 1990s. Months after first seeing drifting on television, McCain traveled to Japan with Jack, now a senior at the Naval Academy and an avid fan of motorsports, to take drifting lessons with a top instructor.

"I love it," McCain said, though she described herself as a below-average drifter. "I'm probably a little too cautious with it because it is abnormal from what you're taught when you're taught to drive. You're taught to keep control of your car. Everything you were taught in driver's ed, forget. That's what drifting is about."

For people who have never seen it, drifting occurs when a driver intentionally skids a car sideways through a turn on a road or a marked course, usually at speeds that exceed the legal limit. It's known among pockets of auto-racing enthusiasts in about 15 countries, and to anyone who has seen the movie "The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift."

The difference between driving and drifting through a turn is dramatic. When a car on a highway approaches a sharp left turn at, say, 75 mph, the driver slows down and turns the wheel to the left.

"But that's not what happens in drifting," said Justin Gardiner, a British journalist who covers the auto industry from Japan and has drifted numerous times. "First, a drifter must have a powerful rear-wheel-drive car, something like a Corvette. When they head into a left turn, they pull the wheel sharply to the left and mash the accelerator, which would get the back end of the car to slide out. Then they quickly turn the steering wheel [all the way] to the right." With the wheels pointing to the right, the car then slides sideways through the left turn before proceeding normally again.

Some drifters employ the emergency brake; others rely more on the clutch. But every method requires lots of practice, not to mention a modicum of chutzpah.

When told that McCain was into drifting, Gardiner was speechless for a few moments. "It's … absolutely … incredulous," he said. "If you look at Sen. McCain, he looks like the archetypal grandfather. And to find out that his missus is into drifting is, frankly, astounding."

Here's another fact many might find surprising: Cindy McCain, an heiress to a multimillion-dollar fortune, has had a passion for racing nearly her entire life.

Her father, the late James Hensley, was known for founding one of the largest Anheuser-Busch distributors in the United States. But he also loved cars and first took McCain, raised as an only child, to the Indy 500 when she was about 12 years old. That inspired her in high school, when she took a class in auto mechanics and regularly attended drag races with friends.

"I'm a gearhead," McCain said with a smile in an interview last month in Phoenix.

McCain's love of sports carried into adulthood. In 1986, six years after marrying John McCain, she got a pilot's license and bought a small plane so she could fly him around Arizona in his first U.S. Senate race, which ended in victory. She owns a small percentage of the Arizona Diamondbacks, finished a half-marathon in 2005, regularly attends NASCAR races, and participates in water sports with her husband, who is 72, and the four children they have together.

"She has a spirit that's very difficult to keep down, and she's always looking for something new to do, something new to get into," said Jack, who generally doesn't speak to the media but recently granted "E:60" an exclusive interview. "And whatever it is, she always excels at it."
And what does John McCain think of his wife's passion for racing? "Oh, he loves it," Cindy McCain said. The McCain campaign, however, did not make the senator available for an interview.

In April 2004, just one day after returning home to Arizona after one of her many trips to Japan to drift with Jack, Cindy McCain's spirit was put to the test. She collapsed while having lunch with friends and couldn't talk or walk. At the age of 49, McCain had suffered a mild stroke and was hospitalized for four days.

Cindy McCain suffered a stroke in April 2004. After she left the Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph's Hospital in Phoenix, she began a course of physical therapy.

Six weeks later, McCain was still limited physically and, she said, mired in depression. Jack knew exactly what type of therapy was needed. As a 50th-birthday gift, he bought her a four-day course to the Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving in Chandler, Ariz.

Driving? Six weeks after a stroke? McCain thought the idea was crazy.

"I don't think I can do this," she recalls telling Jack. "And he said, 'Mom, yes you can.'"

The course was called Executive Protection. Students learned to ram parked cars, perform 180-degree spins and handle perilous situations such as drive-by shootings and hijackings.

For McCain, the course offered all that and more. It helped restore her confidence and improve certain skills, such as coordination and concentration.

"I remember her wanting to build up that driving skill set again," said Danny Bullock, her instructor at Bondurant. "I think she was a little nervous that she wouldn't be able to react in time with the car if she needed to make a turn." He added: "She did exceptionally well."

In fact, McCain did so well that, a year later, in May 2005, she returned to Bondurant to hone her drifting skills. She and Jack then rebuilt a Nissan 240SX, installing a tricked-out engine and other parts conducive to drifting (the car is not street-legal). They even competed in amateur drift competitions in the U.S. as a mother-son tandem, finishing as high as second place.

Yes, drifting is more than just a driving technique. It has become a sport, albeit one on the fringe and not sanctioned by the FIA, the governing body for motorsports worldwide. A professional drifting circuit in Japan has existed since 2000. The governing body for drifting in the United States, Formula Drift, was formed in 2004. It hosts about 10 competitions a year, with winners receiving $5,000.

The competitions are held nationwide, but the sport is most popular in Southern California. Although drifting fans in this region relish the sport's cult status, Formula Drift now has a handful of recognizable sponsors, from Mazda to Circuit City to BF Goodrich. There are even technological signs of growth. Tens of millions of people have gone to YouTube to watch drifting. And gamers can drift from the comfort of their sofa using Nintendo's Wii steering wheel.

About 50 professional drifters are listed on Formula Drift's Web site, including Tanner Foust, who won a gold medal in rally car racing at the 2007 X Games. They compete, sometimes two at a time, on small, often curvy portions of standard racetracks. Winners are determined not by who finishes first but by who gets higher marks in a variety of categories, including form, speed and style. Judges seem to have a soft spot for screeching sounds and smoke from burning tires.

"We are kind of a hybrid between action sports and motorsports because drifting is the only motor sport in the world that's actually subjective," said Ryan Sage, a co-founder of Formula Drift. "It's not how you get from Point A to Point B, which most motorsport fans find difficult to swallow at first."

There are other obstacles that have prevented drifting from going mainstream. Amateur drifting has taken place on public roads, which is dangerous and harmful to the sport's image. According to Gardiner, the auto journalist, police in Japan have cracked down on reckless drifting, putting video cameras on notorious roads. Authorities in Saudi Arabia reportedly have installed speed bumps to discourage street drifters.

By all accounts, the best way for racing fans to explore drifting is to take lessons, then enter amateur competitions. McCain has done both. But what would happen if a drifter suddenly found herself living in the White House as first lady? Would she be able to maintain her penchant for drifting? It's a scenario most aficionados of the sport never imagined possible.

"Camp David's got a lot of space," McCain said, laughing. "The only thing I can say is that if we are lucky enough to be able to represent the United States of America, I'll do it the best I can. And I also want to have some fun, too."


Wild Thing's comment...........

I LOVE it this is awesome. This is so great Cindy and Sarah and how they do so many things. I just love it.

It is always so fantastic to see people do things they want to do if they possibly can . I know from experience it is always worth it, taking that dream and making it real. The main thing is never give up the dream .

....Thank you Tom for sending this to me.

McCain/Palin Rally in Fairfax, VA

OMG LOOK at this, Todd and Sarah's daughter Piper has a Fan Club. This is absolutely adorable!!!!!!!

More of the sweet children

This made me cry.....someone has a sgin for Track , Sarah and Todd's son that will be deployed today.

sources :

wizbang blog

The rally was held at Van Dyke Park in Fairfax, VA. Attendance, as at their other recent campaign stops, was massive and enthusiastic. Former Rep. Tom Davis, and Former Sen. Fred Thompson introduced them.

When McCain and running mate Sarah Palin appeared this morning at Van Dyck Park, in the city of Fairfax, Virginia, the people spilled out of the natural amphitheater, over the sides, out the back, and nearly all the way to the Old Lee Highway. The rally had originally been scheduled for Fairfax High School, but some school board members objected. With controversy brewing, the McCain campaign moved the event to the park. It was a good idea; the high school facility could handle 6,500 people, which would have been a huge crowd in pre-Palin days. But today, the school wouldn’t have been nearly big enough. After the rally, McCain officials told me 23,000 people had been there.

Everybody else seemed to think the same thing. I approached a woman named Carolyn, from Arlington, who told me she helped found the Independent Women’s Forum several years ago. “I am so proud of what she represents,” Carolyn said of Palin. “I wish my friend Barbara Olson were here to see this, because she would be thrilled. This is an incredible moment.”

NOTE from Wild Thing....Barbara Olson was killed in Flight 93 on 9-11

Carolyn’s friend, Colette, was standing nearby, nodding. “I’ve been a member of Feminists for Life for 25 years,” she told me. “I am the mother of seven, including twins — six girls — and I am just so proud today for all women. Sarah Palin is showing that a certain segment does not speak for women, that we have something else to say.”

With an audience primed like that, it almost didn’t matter what Palin said. When she appeared onstage, dressed in black, the crowd whooped it up with chants of SAR-AH! SAR-AH! SAR-AH! It wasn’t quite as loud as the O-BA-MA! chants two weeks ago at Denver’s Invesco Field, but it was pretty big. When Palin reached the microphone, she hit all of the main points from her speech at last week’s convention. And while her performance was a little rote, she seemed to put something extra into the section of her speech devoted to energy. She clearly knows a lot about the oil and gas business, and it shows when she speaks. Whatever the other hoopla about McCain’s choice of Palin, the fact is, in the midst of an election dominated by concerns about energy, he picked someone with real knowledge of energy. Not a bad idea.

As for McCain himself, he does appear to be jazzed by the Palin pandemonium that he has set off. When he began to speak, he got right into it: “My friends, the Commonwealth of Virginia is a battleground state, and we must win it,” he said. “We will win it.” When McCain is feeling good on the stump, there’s none of that weak, sing-song delivery that creeps into his big speeches. Here in Fairfax, he was making his points quickly and clearly.

And this........................

Overflow crowd, scattered over a plane the size of a football field, with hills surrounding it and packed with people. I’d put it closer to 30,000 people, none with seats. Young, old, newborn babies, ladies with walkers, veterans, Hillary-types, and a smattering of Obama lunatics across the street.

Cindy McCain in a green dress, John McCain was filled with energy and all smiles , a sporty looking Todd Palin and THE star of the show, Governor Palin, who was radiant and sophisticated in a black dress and gold broach. She is stunningly beautiful in person, and the crowd hung on her every word.

There was a massive bottleneck to exit Van Dyke Park, but timing is everything. As we reached Old Lee Highway, the secret service stopped traffic and here came the motorcade. Two or three SUV’s with real serious looking secret service, and suddenly, the Straight Talk Express bus emerged.

When it got about thirty feet from our curb, it suddenly stopped and McCain got out and shook hands. I couldn’t believe my fortune. I didn’t get close enough, but he got back in and stood in the sunlight through the windshield, both he and Cindy waving to the raptuous street scene.

Wild Thing's comment.........

Thank you God! There is so much joy and happiness and confidence too. And yesss hope for America the best country in the entire world.

God bless our troops and Sarah and John and their families.

Does anybody else notice the contrast between the people you see at McCain/Palin rallies and the ones for Obama?

I see smiling, happy and energetic people at McCain/Palin rallies.

Whereas, the Obama's crowds look like they could have been background extras in “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest.” They look miserable and if they aren't before his rallies they would have to be when he is done talking to them or Michellle is done talking to them how horrible America is and how they can't do anything without the government helping them.

Remembering September 11th, 2001


For the WTC Jumpers
He came back,
This time for me.
On the 110th floor I was so close to God
I could almost grab his beard.
Never before has heaven been this close to hell.
I can feel its fire on the floors below
Raising ash and paper and smoke
Thick as Satan’s laughter.
At the window, shattered,
I look for salvation and he tempts me,
Dares me to jump,
Whispering a psalm in my ear
He spits as he speaks:
“He will bid his angels watch over you.
With their hands they will support you.”
I mumble “Amen,”
Close my eyes and sense the rush of air.
I cannot breathe until I finally feel
Those hands of angels
Hard as cement against my face.
......................By Doug Seubert

Those delivering death and destruction, the terrorists

"I don't think you can overstate the importance
that the rise of Islamic fundamentalism
will have to the rest of the world in the
century ahead-especially if, as seems possible,
its most fanatical elements get their
hands on nuclear and chemical weapons
and the means to deliver them
against their enemies." --Ronald Reagan

McCain vs.Obama on TAXES ~ How Do They Compare



There is no opinion or propaganda here.... the following information is purely factual.



0% on home sales up to $500,000 per home
(couples). McCain does not propose any change in existing home sales income tax.


28% on profit from ALL home sales.
How does this affect you? If you sell your home and make a profit, you will pay 28% of your gain on taxes. If you are heading toward retirement and would like to down-size your home or move into a retirement community, 28% of the money you make from your home will go to taxes.

This proposal will adversely affect the elderly who are counting on the income from their homes as part of their retirement income.)



15% (no change)


39.6% - (How will this affect you?

If you have any money invested in stock market, IRA, mutual funds, college funds, life insurance, retirement accounts, or anything that pays or reinvests dividends, you will now be paying nearly 40% of the money earned on taxes if Obama becomes president.

The experts predict that 'Higher tax rates on dividends and capital gains would crash the stock market, yet do
absolutely nothing to cut the deficit.')



(no changes)
Single making 30K - tax $4,100
Single making 50K - tax $8,845
Single making 75K - tax $15,094
Married making 60K- tax $8,198
Married making 75K - tax $11,438
Married making 125K - tax $23,938

Single making 75K - tax $23,250
Married making 60K - tax $16,800

Married making 125K - tax $38,750
Under Obama, your taxes could almost



0% (No change, Bush repealed this tax)

Many families have lost businesses, farms, ranches, and homes that have been in their families for generations because they could not afford the inheritance tax. Those willing their assets to loved ones will only lose them to these taxes.


New government taxes proposed on homes that are more than 2400 square feet. New gasoline taxes (as if gas weren't high enough already) New taxes on natural resources consumption (heating gas, water, electricity)

New taxes on retirement accounts, and last but not least....New taxes to pay for socialized medicine so we can receive the same level of medical care as other third-world countries!!!

2008 Presidential Candidates' Tax Proposals

Regarding a comparison of Obama and McCain tax proposals, the Chicago Sun-Times put together its figures in June, 2008.

By their estimates, for example, a person with taxable income of $19,000 or less would pay $597 less under Obama and $19 less under McCain.

A person with taxable income of $19,000 to $38,000 per year would pay $892 less under Obama's plan and $113 less under McCain's.

A person with taxable income between $112,000 and $227,000 would pay $2,300 less under Obama and $3,200 less under McCain.

A person with taxable income of $227,000 would pay $23,000 more under Obama and $15,000 less under McCain.

The eRumor says that the inheritance tax was repealed under George W. Bush, which is not true, although there have been numerous attempts to repeal it.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times article, McCain would seek to lower the inheritance tax while Obama would raise it on estates more than $3.5 million.

Obama wants to stick It to the rich and take big portions out of things he shouldn’t have his paws on. The Tax Policy Center “estimates the Obama plan would cut taxes by $2.9 trillion from 2009-2018. McCain would reduce taxes by nearly $4.2 trillion. Obama would give larger tax cuts to low- and moderate-income households and pay some of the cost by raising taxes on high-income taxpayers. In contrast, McCain would cut taxes across the board and give the biggest cuts to the highest-income households.”

....Thank you Brad for sending this to me.

Biden: Clinton would have been a better VP

OOPS! Biden might be sorry he said this! I don't know for sure if he was kidding or not. But if we go by his past gaffe's I would say it is for real and not a joke.

Sometimes thinking out loud while giving a speech may not be such a good idea if one is a total idiot. LOL
heh heh

McCain / Palin Campaign Stop at Lancaster, PA

Traffic heading to Franklin and Marshall College on the Harrisburg Pike is backed up almost to U.S. Route 30.

Outside, long lines wrap around the Alumni Sports and Fitness Center Field House waiting to go through the security screenings required for entry into the event.


Pittsburgh Tribune Review


and Google, Yahoo and Reuters sites for photos
and additional notes from news sources


It's official, Sen. John McCain's crowds are now Obama-sized.

The event was sold out with 7,500 tickets distributed within 48 hours. According to a Pennsylvania State trooper, they have an over-flow section in the parking lot for an expected 4,000 more.

Karen Miller, 50, of Lancaster, was in line with her husband, Tom. A registered Democrat, she voted for Sen. Hillary Clinton in the Pennsylvania primaries.

"Palin is a strong woman going after the big boys in Washington" said Miller, "she has made the McCain ticket a powerful one and one of reform."
Husband Tom, 54, said he didn't need Palin to persuade him. He was already on board with McCain after Hillary lost: "McCain is not afraid to buck the Republican Party he belongs to, he belongs to the people."

Three hours before the event was to begin, the line of cars stretched over a mile from the exit off of the Lincoln Highway to the event site at Franklin and Marshal College. A line a few thousand deep wrapped it's way around F&M college.

Supporters of Republican vice presidential candidate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, hold up campaign signs of her as ' Rosie the Riveter' as they wait in line to see Republican presidential candidate Sen., John McCain, R-Ariz., and Palin, Tuesday, Sept. 9, 2008, at a campaign rally at Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, Pa

Amish are usually apolitical, but this election is special and my thinking is they are very aware of the kind of person McCain and Palin are running against. And also the kind of person especially that Sarah and McCain are with their stance on abortion too. The Amish were big supporters of Dubya in 04. I think the presence of Sarah Palin on the ticket will bring out millions of deeply religious people who might otherwise have stayed home. People that believe in religious freedom, family, and moral values.

Huge American flag with lights reflecting on and behind it. Also music played setting the mood perfectly.

Matt Goss Band playing "Raisin' McCain."

Also on hand for entertainment are the band and cheerleaders from nearby Hempfield High School.

There were women that that wore pink "Hot Chicks Vote Republican" buttons; one hoisted a McCain placard bearing a hand-scrawled message: "Guns, God, Lipstick."

McCain-Palin enthusiasts begin filling the floor of Franklin & Marshall's Alumni Sports and Fitness Center Field House prior to this afternoon's Republican rally in Lancaster.

Photo of the bitter,religious, gun clinging people in Pennsylvania..... take that Obama freakazoid!

With electricity in the air of excitment and the audience like a roar........ Palin and McCain were introduced.......

"Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome the next President and Vice President of the United States!’

A local minister who asked the crowd to pray for President Bush, Vice President Cheney, the Republican candidates and U.S. troops. Conspicuously absent from the prayer requests were Obama and his running mate, Sen. Joe Biden.

The biggest cheers have come each time Palin's name is mentioned, underscoring her popularity with the Republican base.

The Hempfield cheerleaders took the stage a few minutes ago to lead the crowd in a cheer of "When I say John, You say McCain" and "When I say victory, you say now."

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, center with her husband Todd Palin, reacts to cheers from supporters during a campaign rally at Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, Pa.

McCain stepped up to the microphone and said:

‘I am privileged to have been introduced to you by Sarah Palin. But I am looking forward even more to introducing Sarah Palin to Washington D.C.’

… at which point seven thousand south-central Pennsylvanians lost their composure, and the cheers and applause were (literally) deafening. Once the din subsided, a powerful chant of ‘Sa-rah! Sa-rah! Sa-rah!’ filled the hall.

Palin's speech is long on praise for McCain the veteran and former prisoner of war, and short on policy. Speaking with McCain beside her, flanked by her husband, the "First Dude" Todd Palin, the vice presidential nominee praises McCain's "determination, resolve and sheer guts," reminding the crowd several times of McCain's military record, because "he won't say it on his own behalf."

"There is only one man in this election who has fought for this country," she said.

Palin also seeks to reinforce McCain's image as a maverick and an agent of change, saying the senator, who has been in Washington since he was elected to Congress in 1982, "doesn't run with the Washington herd. He's willing to shake things up."

Several lines of her speech were familiar to those who watched her acceptance speech at last week's GOP convention

"We prefer candidates who don't talk about us one way in Lancaster and another way in San Francisco," she said, subbing Lancaster for Scranton in her referring to Obama's oft-quoted comments about bitter voters clinging to guns and religion.

"There are candidates who use change to promote their careers and those like John McCain, who use their careers to promote change," she said.

McCain got big cheers at all the expected places -- "Drill here, drill now"; "I would rather lose a political campaign than see America lose a war"; "All you ever ask of government is to stand on your side, not in your way."

But without a doubt, the biggest reaction came when he told the crowd, "I can't wait to introduce (Palin) to Washington." That brought a thunderous ovation, followed by a loud chant of "Sarah, Sarah, Sarah."

McCain proclaimed the surge in Iraq a success, promised to drill offshore and to build nuclear power plants, pledged to reach across the aisle to get things done and promise to veto pork-barrel spending.

McCain spoke and shook hands outside, Palin and her husband signed autographs and posed for photos with supporters inside, who pressed against the barriers on the floor to try to get closer.

Palin also made a stop at the outside overflow area to shake hands and sign autographs.


Wild Thing's comment.............

It is reported that more than a thousand were turned away.

This is an absolute political Tsunami that is going to engulf and wash away the Obama presidency aspirations.

I caught a shot of McCain about a month ago from the side and thought he looked old and tired and kind of hunched. It surprised me because looking at him straight on you get a different impression. But ever since he made the Palin announcement he seems to be reborn. He looks healthy and energized and more than ready to take on Obama!

McCain’s choice of Sarah Palin and the manner in which he has conducted himself since he chose her speaks so highly of his character as a leader. Good leaders want other leaders around them, and are not threatened by the abilities of those leaders. McCain is energized by Sarah Palin’s leadership abilities, and it shows.

On the other hand, petty tyrants are petrified of the abilities of others, and so the character of B. Hussein Obama is seen in his choice of VP candidates. He could never chose a running mate who might steal any of his limelight.

They also made a special place along the railing in the front for those in wheelchairs and there were a lot of Veternas there wearing VFW hats adorned with a buttons and medals. I could not find any photos of this but one of the write ups online mentioned this and it touched my heart, because they thought of everything for the crowd attending the rally.

I got this below late in the evening after the rally, from one of Nicholas's cousins that lives in Maryland. It is from a frieind of his he works with and I thought you might like to see it too.

"Got to tell you my story. Sunday I got an email from the McCain camp about the rally in Lancaster. I immediately got on the horn with my friend and asked if she wanted to go. YES!!! was the answer, so we zipped up to Gettysburg to get tickets for us and another friend.

This is the first political rally for any of us, and that is something since I am 72 and my younger friends are in their 60's.

Well,we can't go to any more rallies since this one was perfect. We got there at 10:30 and found a spot right near the building. We got in line with great people: registered Democrats, and women holding the "Rosie the Riveter" pic. Media were everywhere, we got to speak to Molly H from Fox.

We were allowed in the building at 12:30 and found places right in front of the Speakers stand. We got great pictures, got to shake John's, Sarah's and Todd's hands, and got my "Sarah for VP" button signed by Sarah.

My friends and family are so excited for me. Such a fantastic day, great excited crowd. great people.

Something we both noticed too, Johon McCain has a genuine respect and admiration in which he appears to hold Sarah Palin. It was extraordinarily obvious today on the speakers' platform.

And I know it isn't important, but Sarah is more beautiful in person than on TV. Molly H from Fox is a tiny little thing. And I tell you, John McCain was fantastic and looked great.. Can you tell I'm pumped!

GREAT Story! Family With Down Syndrome Child Meets John McCain And Sarah Palin


RUSH: Kurt in Pittsburgh, hello, sir. Nice to have you on the EIB Network, and how about the Steelers defense?

CALLER: How about those Steelers, huh?

RUSH: How about that?

CALLER: Hey, listen, Rush, long-time listener, first-time caller, one of those Bible, family, gun clingers from western Pennsylvania.

RUSH: Thank you.

CALLER: And I wanted to share a story with you. A week ago last Saturday we went to the Palin-McCain rally in Washington, Pennsylvania, was the day after he announced her, and we have a five-year-old daughter with Down syndrome, and we made a sign that said: "We Love Kids with Down Syndrome." So when they pulled in their bus the sign did catch their, McCain and Palin and the rest of their family, it caught their eye, we could tell, they gave us a thumbs-up from the bus, so we were all excited just by that --

RUSH: Wait, wait, wait. Who gave you the thumbs up, McCain and Palin?

CALLER: McCain, Palin, Cindy McCain, we could see them from the bus. We were in a position where we had eye contact with them --

RUSH: Oh, cool!

CALLER: My wife was holding our daughter.

RUSH: Very, very, very cool.

CALLER: It was really cool, Rush. I was like, "Wow, that's awesome," because I love Governor Palin and so I thought that's really neat. So then we moved around as the bus was getting ready to pull out, we kind of positioned ourselves so we could just wave them on and a Secret Service agent came up to us and said, "Hey, can you come with us?" I was like, "Do we have a choice?"

RUSH: (laughing) You shouldn't have worried. It's not the Clinton administration.

CALLER: Right. So we accompanied them up the hill, we went right to the bus, where it was, and Governor Palin, Senator McCain, Cindy, Todd Palin, they're all standing there. We're in this inner circle with just us and them, and the Secret Service agent, and they came right up to us and thanked us for coming out, said they loved our sign, and Governor Palin immediately said, "May I hold your daughter?" and our daughter Chloe, who's five, went right to her, and I have some pictures I'd love to send you maybe when I'm done here, but Governor Palin was hugging Chloe, and then her little daughter brought their baby Trig who has Down syndrome from the bus, he was napping, and Chloe went right over and kissed him on the cheek, and my son Nolan who's nine, he thanked her.

RUSH: This is amazing.

CALLER: I will send you all the stuff, Senator McCain was talking to my son, and he thanked him for his service, and he asked my son if he wanted to see the bus, and we were hanging out and it was very surreal. I felt like we could have had a pizza and a beer with them, they were so warm.

RUSH: You know what? I want to put you on hold. I want Snerdley to give you our super-secret, known-only-to-three-people here, e-mail address.

CALLER: I will send you everything, Rush.

RUSH: And then could you send us these pictures? Would you mind if we put them on the website?

CALLER: I would be honored, and my main thing is they are warm, kind, genuine people, and they represent the best of this country.

RUSH: That's right. And when you send these pictures, make sure you identify them. I mean, we'll know Palin and McCain, of course. Identify yourselves.

CALLER: I will, I will identify everybody in the picture, Rush, and God bless you for being a beacon of hope and truth in this country.

RUSH: Oh, no, no. It's nothing, it's nothing. You're doing the Lord's work.

CALLER: Well, we're very blessed and I want people to know what a blessing it is to have a child with Down syndrome. These kids, they're angels.

RUSH: That's the thing. There's always good to be found in everything that happens. It may be a while before it reveals itself.

CALLER: Absolutely.

RUSH: Right, and when she hugged my daughter I said, here's the difference, this candidate embraces life and all it's limitless possibilities.

RUSH: All right.

CALLER: That's what she is.

RUSH: Terrific, okay, I gotta run here but I'm going to put you on hold.

CALLER: Thank you, Rush.

RUSH: Thank you, Kurt. I really appreciate it.

Wild Thing's comment..........

What a beautiful family Kurt has.

Beautiful, moving and very touching! That's what we need in this country more of. I'm proud of our ticket! And I am proud of Rush too.

I heard the caller today on Rush and was hoping to see the pictrues. Rush got right on it and his web guy. Rush always keeps his word and he love things from the heart like this too.

I have to say because it is so very true too. This is a nightmare scenario for libs. This is they type of child the work so hard to abort and Obama worked hard to re-abort, if the killing didn’t work the first time. And look at the McCain/Palin families taking them on and loving them.

This girl is adorable.

God bless all three of these families.

Joe Biden Latest Attacks On Sarah Palin

Joe Biden Attacks Sarah Palin on Abortion, Calls Her "Backwards Step for Women"

Washington, DC ( -- In a potential preview of the lone debate between the vice-presidential hopefuls that will take place this fall, pro-abortion candidate Joe Biden is attacking Sarah Palin on abortion. In an interview, Biden said it would be a "backwards step for women" if Palin becomes the first female Vice President.

During a campaign stop in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, a local television reporter asked Biden, "Do you think, if she does win, that would be a step forward for women."

Biden, a Delaware senator who is Barack Obama's running mate, disagreed and pointed to Palin's pro-life views on abortion as the reason why.

"Well look, I think the issue is what does Sarah Palin think? What does she believe?" he said.
"I assume she thinks and agrees with the same [pro-life] policies that George Bush and John McCain think," Biden added. "And that's obviously a backward step for women."

Dorinda Bordlee, a prominent attorney who is the senior counsel of the Bioethics Defense Fund, told she was flabbergasted by Biden's remarks.

She said she is not surprised that a man like Joe Biden, who has a long pro-abortion voting record, would attack Palin.

By saying pro-life policies are a "backward step for women," Biden is apparently "completely unaware of the mountain of evidence showing abortion's traumatic impact on women's physical and psychological health," she explained.


And this one............................

Joe Biden Slams Sarah Palin on Down Syndrome Son, Stem Cell Research

Joe Biden, Barack Obama's pro-abortion running mate, is coming under fire for comments he made today attacking vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin. After attacking her on abortion, Biden then slammed Palin on the birth of her son, who has Down syndrome.

During her acceptance speech last week, Palin promised the parents of disabled children that she would be their advocate in the White House.

Biden questioned that commitment by attacking Palin's stance on the issue of embryonic stem cell research, which has never helped a single patient.

"I hear all this talk about how the Republicans are going to work in dealing with parents who have both the joy, because there's joy to it as well, the joy and the difficulty of raising a child who has a developmental disability, who were born with a birth defect,' Biden said.
"Well guess what folks? If you care about it, why don't you support stem cell research?" Biden asked, questioning Palin's commitment.

The McCain campaign released a statement to on Tuesday responding to Biden's accusation and saying Biden's comments on stem cell research were "offensive."

"Barack Obama's running mate sunk to a new low today launching an offensive debate over who cares more about special needs children," McCain spokesman Ben Porritt said. "Playing politics with this issue is disturbing and indicative of a desperate campaign."

Marjorie Dannenfelser, the head of the Susan B. Anthony List, a pro-life women's group, also took strong exception to Biden's "caustic" comments.

"Biden outrageously implied that Americans who refuse to sacrifice innocent human life in the name of unproven, desperate attempts to cure our nation’s ills through embryo-destructive research somehow don't really care about children," she told
"I am a mother of five children, one with a mental disability. The fact that Joe Biden questioned the compassion of parents like me – Governor Sarah Palin, among them – makes me sputter in disbelief," she added.


Wild Thing's comment.........

Obama-bin-Biden are running against Motherhood, Apple Pie, love for special needs children, everything AMERICAN.

They are in full-bore self-destruct mode.

Barack HUSSEIN Obama Obsessed with Lipstick, Pigs and Fish

“You can put lipstick on a pig,” he said as the crowd cheered. “It’s still a pig.” “You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called change. It’s still gonna stink.”

Obama Says McCain Is Offering Fake Change: 'You Can Put Lipstick on a Pig, But It's Still a Pig'

ABC news


"That's not change," Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., said of what Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., is offering.

"You know, you can put lipstick on a pig," Obama said, "but it's still a pig."

The crowd rose and applauded, some of them no doubt thinking he may have been alluding to Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's ad lib during her vice presidential nomination acceptance speech last week, "What's the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? Lipstick."

"You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called 'change,'" Obama continued, "it's still gonna stink after eight years.
"We’ve had enough of the same old thing! It’s time to bring about real change to Washington. And that’s the choice you’ve got in this election."
Obama added that "it is not going to be easy ... John McCain has a compelling biography, you know Sarah Palin is an interesting story."

The crowd booed.

"No, she’s new!" Obama said. "She hasn’t been on the scene, you know, she’s got five kids and my hat goes off to anybody who’s looking after five. I’ve got two and they tire Michelle and me out!"

Wild Thing's comment...........

Obama is a crass, crass man.

He's panicking at the poll numbers and the direct hits by McCain/Palin. If Obama were President, I honestly believe that he'd come unglued at the wrong time and we, as a country, would be in deep doodoo.

He is no man, he is a limp wristed coward that hides behind his race and he is going to find that his affirmative action is running out when November comes.

He does not belong in government on any level.

Obama to Palin: 'Don't Mock the Constitution'

Obama to Palin: 'Don't Mock the Constitution'

Washington Post


Sen. Barack Obama delivered an impassioned defense of the Constitution and the rights of terrorism suspects tonight, striking back at one of the biggest applause lines in Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin's speech to the GOP convention.

It was in St. Paul last week that Palin drew raucous cheers when she delivered this put-down of Obama:"Al-Qaeda terrorists still plot to inflict catastrophic harm on America and he's worried that someone won't read them their rights."

Obama had a few problems with that.

"First of all, you don't even get to read them their rights until you catch 'em," Obama said here, drawing laughs from 1,500 supporters in a high school gymnasium. "They should spend more time trying to catch Osama bin Laden and we can worry about the next steps later."

If the plotters of the Sept. 11 attacks are in the government's sights, Obama went on, they should be targeted and killed.

"My position has always been clear: If you've got a terrorist, take him out," Obama said. "Anybody who was involved in 9/11, take 'em out."

But Obama, who taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago for more than a decade, said captured suspects deserve to file writs of habeus corpus.

Calling it "the foundation of Anglo-American law," he said the principle "says very simply: If the government grabs you, then you have the right to at least ask, 'Why was I grabbed?' And say, 'Maybe you've got the wrong person.'"
The safeguard is essential, Obama continued, "because we don't always have the right person."
"We don't always catch the right person," he said. "We may think it's Mohammed the terrorist, but it might be Mohammed the cab driver. You might think it's Barack the bomb-thrower, but it might be Barack the guy running for president."

Obama turned back to Palin's comment, although he said he was not sure whether Palin or Rudy Giuliani said it.

"The reason that you have this principle is not to be soft on terrorism. It's because that's who we are. That's what we're protecting," Obama said, his voice growing louder and the crowd rising to its feet to cheer. "Don't mock the Constitution. Don't make fun of it. Don't suggest that it's not American to abide by what the founding fathers set up. It's worked pretty well for over 200 years."

He finished with a dismissive comment about his opponents.

"These people."


Wild Thing's comment.........

He is just breath-takingly stupid. These people are not covered under the constitution. The problem is the far left keeps trying to apply the constitution to any breathing person.

It was in St. Paul last week that Palin drew raucous cheers when she delivered this put-down of Obama: "Al-Qaeda terrorists still plot to inflict catastrophic harm on America and he's worried that someone won't read them their rights."

Nope. The Washington Post misquotes Governor Palin. That wasn't a statement, it was a question. It read: "It was in St. Paul last week that Palin drew raucous cheers when she delivered this put-down of Obama: "Al-Qaeda terrorists still plot to inflict catastrophic harm on America and he's worried that someone won't read them their rights?"

Mocking the constitution? When I ask did liberals ever care about that? They don’t just mock it they systematically try to go around and undermine it by whatever means possible.

Terrorists should have no “rights” under the Constitution because they are foreign, non-combatants and thus should not be afforded the same protection as U.S. citizens.

Get this too, regarding Obama's two rallies in in the same day.1500 people , 250 people earlier today. That’s two rallies in MICHIGAN of all places, and Obama pulls in less than 2000 people.

John McCain is a political genius (what did Rush call him...”McGenius.”) He has the Democratic Presidential nominee on the defensive, but not against the Republican Presidential nominee, but against the VP candidate. Doesn’t Obama get the fact that this diminishes his so called “political stature.” Why does it take Hillary, Biden, and Obama to all face off Sarah Palin??? heh heh

The Founding Fathers of the United States of America DID NOT WRITE the U.S. Constitution for a bunch of Islamofascists killing Americans and trying to destroy OUR country! If Obama had spent more time in the United States and less time in Indonesia, who would know that.

The guy is a walking contradiction. On the one hand he says, "Take them out" which, by his standard, would be violating the terrorists habeus corpus "rights" and then on the other hand, if you don't kill them but catch them, they are to be considered innocent until proven guilty. That is if we kill them they were guilty but if captured they are innocent until proven guilty. Of course Obama ignores the legal reality that illegal combatants that wear no uniform and belong to no national government are not to be given the same rights under the Geneva Convention that identified members of a military force of a recognized nation are to be afforded.

This guy is flailing around without any use of logic. Obama is, himself, a walking, breathing affront to the Constitution. His view that federal judges are there to do whatever they think is right, rather than to understand and apply the Constitution, is an assault on the very concept of having a written Constitution.

Obama is also trying to stifle free speech by trying to get the justice department to go after The American Issue Project for running a Ayers add.

Sarah Palin and Interview Planned To Be Done By ABC's Charles Gibson

McCain plans new Palin rollout


Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will speak at her son’s Army deployment ceremony on 9/11 and spend two days with ABC News crews later this week as part of a McCain campaign plan to increase Americans’ comfort with her as a leader.

Campaign and network officials had said on Sunday that her first television interview would be a sit-down with Charles Gibson of ABC’s “World News.”

But it turns out that she is spending much of Thursday and Friday with Gibson — at the ceremony in Fairbanks, Alaska, and at her home in Wasilla, Alaska.

Campaign aides said the anchorman will get extensive, repeated access to Palin throughout her first trip home since becoming the nominee.

“ABC News will have plenty of time to question her and examine her and spend time with her,” a campaign official said. “They’ll do multiple interviews over two days. No topics are off-limits – there are no ground rules. There’s tons of time to talk to her about every topic.”

The remarkable rollout reflects new confidence in Palin by her handlers, who initially had suggested it would be a while before she did interviews. Now, there will be several.

Until now, Palin has been "sequestered," as Sen. Joseph Biden (Del.), her Democratic counterpart, put it on NBC's "Meet the Press" — delivering rousing speeches, but not giving interviews or holding news conferences or answering questions on the fly. She was the only one of the four national candidates not to appear on a Sunday show this weekend.

“Once you start, you don’t stop,” a Republican official said with a chuckle. “That doesn’t mean you run the faucet on high. But once you turn it on, you don’t really ever turn it off.”

The official said Gibson will have the chance to “speak to her on 9/11 about her ideas for keeping America safe in the future; to speak to her as she goes back to Wasilla, where she grew up, about her life and her views and her vision for the country.”

Two interviews with Gibson are planned for Thursday, including a conversation about her support for a natural-gas pipeline – a key applause line in her convention speech. Then on Friday, Palin will talk to Gibson in Wasilla and Anchorage, the official said. She will fly into Anchorage and then drive to Wasilla.

Palin riveted last week’s Republican National Convention with a witty, rousing speech, and has injected huge excitement into the party’s ticket in the 10 days since Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) named her as his surprise pick for running mate.

“People don’t understand how to cover women politicians in a way that is completely fair and enlightened yet,” the official said. “And somehow, she has managed to transcend that.”

Sarah was a point guard , which means she does even better when the pressure is on.

When she gave her speech at the convention, the teleprompter was not working so she had to wing a lot of her speech and it was marvelous. Sarah is a person who is comfortable in her own skin. I have total confdidence in her for this interview or any interview and any debates as well.

Muslim Lover Obama: Terror groups have 'legitimate claims'

Obama: Terror groups have 'legitimate claims'

Asserts U.S. needs foreign policy that 'looks at the root causes of problems'



The Hamas and Hezbollah terrorist organizations have "legitimate claims" that are being "weakened" by the violence the terror groups carry out, Sen. Barack Obama recently stated in largely unnoticed remarks in the New York Times.

Speaking in May with columnist David Brooks, Obama said the U.S. needs a foreign policy that "looks at the root causes of problems and dangers."
The presidential candidate compared Hezbollah to Hamas, stating they both need to be compelled to understand that "they're going down a blind alley with violence that weakens their legitimate claims."

Brooks was speaking to Obama for clarification on an earlier statement the Illinois senator made implying Lebanese militias should be tempered with enticements.

Regarding Hezbollah, Obama earlier declared:

"It's time to engage in diplomatic efforts to help build a new Lebanese consensus that focuses on electoral reform, an end to the current corrupt patronage system, and the development of the economy that provides for a fair distribution of services, opportunities and employment."

Brooks took issue with that statement, writing it has the "whiff" of "appeasement."

Is Obama naïve enough to think that an extremist ideological organization like Hezbollah can be mollified with a less corrupt patronage system and some electoral reform?" asked Brooks, who said he called Obama today to clarify his remarks.

Obama immediately affirmed Hezbollah is "not a legitimate political party." Instead, "It's a destabilizing organization by any common-sense standard. This wouldn’t happen without the support of Iran and Syria."
He continued by stating Hamas and Hezbollah violence weakens the groups' "legitimate claims."

Hamas' official charter calls for the murder of Jews and destruction of the Jewish state. It also calls for Muslims to "pursue the cause of the Movement (Hamas), all over the globe."

~ snip ~

Obama previously was embroiled in controversy regarding Hamas after Ahmed Yousuf, the terror group's chief political adviser in the Gaza Strip, said in an interview in April with WND and with WABC radio that he "hopes" Obama becomes president.

"We like Mr. Obama, and we hope that he will win the elections," said Yousef. "I hope Mr. Obama and the Democrats will change the political discourse. ... I do believe [Obama] is like John Kennedy, a great man with a great principal. And he has a vision to change America to make it in a position to lead the world community, but not with humiliation and arrogance," Yousef said, speaking from Gaza.
If your opponents are looking for your destruction it's hard to sit across the table from them," but, he continued: "There are rarely purely ideological movements out there. We can encourage actors to think in practical and not ideological terms. We can strengthen those elements that are making practical calculations."

Obama's comments about "legitimate causes" of terror groups and "root problems of causes and dangers" seems to echo little-noticed remarks the presidential candidate made eight days after 9/11 in which he said the attacks were carried out because of a lack of "empathy" for others' suffering on the part of al-Qaida, whose terrorist ideology "grows out of a climate of poverty and ignorance, helplessness and despair."

Obama went on to imply the Sept. 11 attacks were, in part, a result of U.S. policy, lecturing the American military to minimize civilian casualties in the Middle East and urging action opposing "bigotry or discrimination directed against neighbors and friends of Middle-Eastern descent."
"Even as I hope for some measure of peace and comfort to the bereaved families, I must also hope that we, as a nation, draw some measure of wisdom from this tragedy," Obama wrote in a piece about 9/11 published Sept. 19, 2001, in Chicago's Hyde Park Herald.

~ snip ~

"We must also engage, however, in the more difficult task of understanding the sources of such madness. The essence of this tragedy, it seems to me, derives from a fundamental absence of empathy on the part of the attackers: an inability to imagine, or connect with, the humanity or suffering of others. Such a failure of empathy, such numbness to the pain of a child or the desperation of a parent is not innate; nor, history tells us, is it unique to a particular culture, religion or ethnicity. It may find expression in a particular brand of violence, it may be channeled by particular demagogues or fanatics.
"Most often, though, it grows out a climate of poverty and ignorance, helplessness and despair.
"We will have to make sure, despite our rage, that any U.S. military action takes into account the lives of innocent civilians abroad. We will have to be unwavering in opposing bigotry or discrimination directed against neighbors and friends of Middle-Eastern descent. Finally, we will have to devote far more attention to the monumental task of raising the hopes and prospects of embittered children across the globe – children not just in the Middle East, but also in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe and within our own shores," he wrote.


Wild Thing's comment..........

Obama is just a stupid as every other leftist who thinks all terrorist groups really want is a group hug. BUT the difference is HE is the one running for President,

He continued by stating Hamas and Hezbollah violence weakens the groups' "legitimate claims."

The following are some of their “legitimate claims”, right out of the Hamas Charter, visible in all its glorious splendor at this link.

“Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.”

“There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavors.”

Hamas, Hezbullah et al. are salivating at the feast they see before them if Hussein Obama is elected.

Code Pink founder Jodie Evans, one of Obama's top 500 fundraisers, known to Obama by her first name, recently said in an interview that Osama bin Laden had valid reasons to attack the USA on 911, citing the presence of US bases in Saudi Arabia.

How about we send Obama to the Hamas, Hezbullah and he can be their Community Organizer.

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

Hillary's Visit To Tampa, Fl. She Refuses To Criticize Palin

Sen. Hillary Clinton greets supporters after speaking during a "Change We Can Believe In" rally Monday in Tampa.

In Tampa Visit, Clinton Refuses To Criticize Palin

The Tampa Tribune

In her first appearance in Tampa since losing the Democratic presidential nomination, Hillary Rodham Clinton strongly endorsed Barack Obama Monday, but refused to criticize the newer woman on the presidential campaign scene, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

"Barack and I may have started on two separate paths, but we are on one journey now," Clinton said.

She reprised lines from her speech at the Democratic National Convention two weeks ago saying, in effect, that anyone who supported her ought to support him.

Referring to her 35 years working in politics and public policy issues, she said, "I haven't done that to see us squander this opportunity. This is bigger than any one person – it's way bigger than Barack and me."

Clinton spoke to a crowd estimated by organizers at about 2,300 at the All People's Life Center in East Tampa.

Several times, she declined to discuss Palin, chosen by John McCain as his running mate, who has been criticized as lacking experience. Instead, she shifted the discussion to differences between Republicans and Democrats and the errors she said Republicans including President Bush have made during the past eight years.

When an audience member shouted out during her speech, "Tell us about Palin," she responded, "I don't think that's what this election is about,"

"This election is about the differences between us and the Republican Party. Anybody who believes that the Republicans, whoever they are, can fix the mess they created, probably believes that the iceberg could have saved the Titanic."

Asked by reporters after her speech whether she considers Palin qualified to be president, she again declined to answer directly.

"I'm going to stay focused on the issues and I'm going to keep talking about the issues because I think that's what matters to the American people," she said.

She added that having Palin on the ticket is "a great milestone for our nation."

"The Democrats did it in 1984; it took a while but the Republicans got around to doing it this year," she said. But, she added, "That's not the determinant as to who should be our president."

But Clinton also couldn't help referring to her own quest for the nomination, and to the fact that Florida was one of her strongholds.

When an audience member shouted, "I love you Hillary," she responded, "I love you too -- I especially love Tampa and Hillsborough County for supporting me in the primary."

Cindy Bauer, a lifelong Democrat from Tampa, said she was "very disappointed" by Clinton's loss. "It took a few days, but I got over it. … There's too much at stake for the future of our country," she said.

Bauer said McCain's choice of Sarah Palin only solidified her decision to support Obama. "Anyone who tells me that I shouldn't get an abortion if I choose to, that's it," she said.

But not all Democratic women who supported Clinton have boarded the bandwagon.

Julie Harris, a longtime local Democratic Party activist who worked in Clinton's campaign, wasn't at the rally, but said in an interview Monday she's backing McCain

Clinton, however, said she's not concerned that significant numbers of her backers won't get behind Obama.


Wild Thing's comment......

It looks like Hillary is just going through the motions of demonstrating party loyalty.

Bauer said McCain's choice of Sarah Palin only solidified her decision to support Obama. "Anyone who tells me that I shouldn't get an abortion if I choose to, that's it," she said.

Abortion, abortion, abortion. Is killing babies all these "women" care about?

Hillary just doing her job, Obama can't ask for more. He really should be doing his own campaigning.

The Loony Left Hemisphere by Russ Vaughn

The Loony Left Hemisphere

James Lewis in his September 6th posting, ‘The End of Boomer Weirdness,” sent me scrambling to Wikipedia to find the meaning of the term hebephrenic. What I found there led me to this:

A form of schizophrenia in which affective changes are prominent, delusions and hallucinations fleeting and fragmentary, behavior irresponsible and unpredictable, and mannerisms common. The mood is shallow and inappropriate and often accompanied by giggling or self-satisfied, self-absorbed smiling, or by a lofty manner, grimaces, mannerisms, pranks, hypochondriacal complaints, and reiterated phrases.

Upon reading that, the first light bulb that popped on was, Alan Colmes! followed closely by, Ellis Henican and Bob Beckel!” But then with further reflection, I realized that many, if not all, of these diagnostic terms could be applied fairly to far too many of the liberal spokespersons we see on television, in particular the references to self-satisfied, self-absorbed smiling, or by a lofty manner, grimaces. Just think of all the smug, smarter-than-thou, liberal talking heads those words describe: Olbermann, Matthews, those View broads, all through the major networks, ad infinitum. And consider how the self-satisfied smile usually comes at the end of a successful rattling off of a string of memorized DNC talking points. The lofty manner and grimaces accompany the rebuttals from their conservative counterparts.

Think about what you’ve been watching for the last few years and tell me I’m wrong.

Now he’s not one of my favorite talk show hosts because of his bombastic style but, to his credit, Michael Savage has been saying for several years that Liberalism is a mental disorder. I believe I’m beginning to agree with him. Suddenly, expressions like Loons on the Left and Kool Aid Drinkers are beginning to take on new meaning. Lewis, in his AT article cites Polish scientist and author, Count Alfred Korzybski who coined the term unsanity to describe this sort of collective, unhinged behavior by entire segments of society. By the Count’s accounting, they may not be certifiably, committably insane but they are definitely operating with far too many screws loose. That’s not the Count’s medical terminology, by the way, but mine.

When I talk to family members and friends who are readily sucking up Obama’s version of Jim Jones’ purple, Flavor-Aid cocktails, I am aware that no amount of reasoning is going to sway them from their feelings that Obama is The One. What does provide a ray of hope and sanity is that those truly unsane are still in the minority and suddenly an antidote has arrived for those only minimally afflicted: Sarah Palin.

The Glamorous Gov, possesses an oft-noted, naughty librarian look that conceals an iron-willed political competence that when they get glimpses of it in her public pronouncements is turning the unsane on the left totally insane. Just when Us magazine, with their frothing denunciation of McCain’s butt-kickin’ BatGirl thinks they have her teetering on the edge of the topmost floor of the New York Times Building, they look down and its their own toes they see tottering feebly on the edge of the abyss. Holy Palony, Pinch!!! What mystical powers are we up against???

And Pinchy Boy’s New York Times, which is the institutional exemplification of full-blown, beyond treatable hebephrenia, has deployed a battalion (or is it a brigade? Libs have problems with math and military terms, you know) of investigative reporters to the Far North to dig up dirt on the Gov which could explain their lack of manpower to send any investigative reporters to Chicago to conduct any sort of professional journalistic probe of the nefarious Daly Machine which has seemingly produced a presidential candidate out of thin air with an even thinner résumé. All of which leaves me to ponder:

Has the whole damned world gone crazy? Nope, just the freakin’ Left Hemisphere.

Effects of Bovine 'Burps' on Global Warming ~ Udderly ridiculous!


Argentine scientists are strapping plastic tanks to the backs of cows Photo: REUTERS

Cow farts collected in plastic tank for global warming study

Scientists are examining cow farts and burps in a novel bid to combat global warming.

Experts said the slow digestive system of cows makes them a key producer of methane, a potent greenhouse gas that gets far less public attention than carbon dioxide.

In a bid to understand the impact of the wind produced by cows on global warming, scientists collected gas from their stomachs in plastic tanks attached to their backs.

The Argentine researchers discovered methane from cows accounts for more than 30 per cent of the country's total greenhouse emissions.

As one of the world's biggest beef producers, Argentina has more than 55 million cows grazing in its famed Pampas grasslands.

Guillermo Berra, a researcher at the National Institute of Agricultural Technology, said every cow produces between 8000 to 1,000 litres of emissions every day.

Methane, which is also released from landfills, coal mines and leaking gas pipes, is 23 times more effective at trapping heat in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide.

Scientists are now carrying out trials of new diets designed to improve cows's digestion and hopefully reduce global warming. Silvia Valtorta, of the National Council of Scientific and Technical Investigations, said that by feeding cows clover and alfalfa instead of grain "you can reduce methane emissions by 25 percent".


Greenhouse gassy cows - LOL

But ......but that's not all........why no there is more ...........look at this........

UN says eat less meat to curb global warming


Or ..Fight Global Warming One Steak or One Cheeseburger at a Time ....LOL --- Wild Thing

People should have one meat-free day a week if they want to make a personal and effective sacrifice that would help tackle climate change, the world's leading authority on global warming has told The Observer

Dr Rajendra Pachauri, chair of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which last year earned a joint share of the Nobel Peace Prize, said that people should then go on to reduce their meat consumption even further.

His comments are the most controversial advice yet provided by the panel on how individuals can help tackle global warning.

Pachauri, who was re-elected the panel's chairman for a second six-year term last week, said diet change was important because of the huge greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental problems - including habitat destruction - associated with rearing cattle and other animals. It was relatively easy to change eating habits compared to changing means of transport, he said.

However, he also stressed other changes in lifestyle would help to combat climate change. 'That's what I want to emphasise: we really have to bring about reductions in every sector of the economy.'

Pachauri can expect some vociferous responses from the food industry to his advice, though last night he was given unexpected support by Masterchef presenter and restaurateur John Torode, who is about to publish a new book, John Torode's Beef. 'I have a little bit and enjoy it,' said Torode. 'Too much for any person becomes gluttony. But there's a bigger issue here: where [the meat] comes from. If we all bought British and stopped buying imported food we'd save a huge amount of carbon emissions.'

Tomorrow, Pachauri will speak at an event hosted by animal welfare group Compassion in World Farming, which has calculated that if the average UK household halved meat consumption that would cut emissions more than if car use was cut in half.

The group has called for governments to lead campaigns to reduce meat consumption by 60 per cent by 2020. Campaigners have also pointed out the health benefits of eating less meat. The average person in the UK eats 50g of protein from meat a day, equivalent to a chicken breast and a lamb chop - a relatively low level for rich nations but 25-50 per cent more than World Heath Organisation guidelines.


Wild Thing's comment.........

LOL but the Aussies will save the day. hahahhahahahha
Look at this......

Kangaroo farts could ease global warming

AUSTRALIAN ....scientists are trying to give kangaroo-style stomachs to cattle and sheep in a bid to cut the emission of greenhouse gases blamed for global warming, researchers say.

Thanks to special bacteria in their stomachs, kangaroo flatulence contains no methane and scientists want to transfer that bacteria to cattle and sheep who emit large quantities of the harmful gas.


Even farmers who laugh at the idea of environmentally friendly kangaroo farts say that's nothing to joke about, particularly given the devastating drought Australia is suffering.

See now we have nothing to worry about. LOL Sheesh these people are totally nuts.

The One Who Didn’t Get The Vetting Right Was Soros ~ Obama’s Muslim Past Dogs Campaign

He trys to correct himself via Stephanopolous’s suggestion, but he didn’t say “muslim connections”, he said, “my muslim faith”. Very much “possessive”.

This is a longer version that I posted yesterday, a better one that starts off with his complaining about McCain and right off the bat Stephanopolous’s corrects Obama that the McCain campaign has never said anything about it. LOL Obama caught in another lie. If Stephanopolous’s had not corrected Obama it would have stood as fact what he said about the McCain/Palin campaign. -- Wild Thing

Obama’s Muslim Past Dogs Campaign


Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama has launched a tirade against John McCain, claiming he and his campaign are behind reports tying him to the Muslim faith.

Obama, a committed Christian today,was born to the Muslim faith and raised as a Muslim in his early youth, though he did not actively practice his religion.

Obama began his broadside last Friday at a campaign stop in Scranton, Pa.

"When they say this isn't about issues, it's about personalities, what they're really saying is, 'We're going to try to scare people about Barack. So we're going to say that, you know, maybe he's got Muslim connections, or we're going to say that, you know, he hangs out with radicals, or he's not patriotic,'" Obama told his audience.
McCain’s campaign chairman quickly responded to Obama, calling his comment "a cynical attempt to play the victim."

On Sunday, Obama again tried to connect McCain to questions being raised about his faith.

"These guys love to throw rocks and hide their hand," Obama said on ABC's "This Week."
He then claimed McCain's campaign is working behind the scenes, saying the Islamic talk is "being promulgated on Fox News ... and Republican commentators who are closely allied to these folks."
"What I think is fair to say is that coming out of the Republican camp there have been efforts to suggest that perhaps I'm not who I say I am when it comes to my faith," Obama said, which he described as "my Muslim faith" in apparent verbal gaffe.

Obama's campaign clearly is concerned about the persistent discussion of matters involving him and Islam, and it even has paid search ads on Google when words like "Obama Muslim" are plugged in. One Obama search ad is headlined "Barack Obama Muslim Myth" with the following statement: "Barack Obama is a Christian. Get the facts at his official site."

Obama's media offensive over the Muslim issue suggests he wants any discussion of his religious past taken off the table as the campaign enters its most heated period after the convention.

Obama's Ties to Islam

Obama's ties to Islam are hereditary. His father was a Muslim, though Obama claims he was nonpracticing. According to Islamic law, Obama was born a Muslim, as religion is passed paternally. (Judaism, for example, passes religious identification maternally.)

Apparently in deference to his father, his full name, Barack Hussein Obama, is an Arabic name. The name Barack is a derivation of "Barak" -- the horse that took the prophet Muhammad on his flight into heaven.

Though Obama’s biological father disappeared from his son’s life soon after he was born and returned to his native Kenya, he was raised by his Kansas-born mother and her second husband, an Indonesian who was also a Muslim.

Obama has described his mother as a Christian, but Newsweek recently noted she had eschewed her parents’ faith in favor of secular humanism.

Obama’s mother and her Indonesian husband moved with young Barack from Hawaii to Jakarta, Indonesia’s capital, in 1967. Obama lived there from ages 6 to 10.

Reports dating back as far as early 2007 held that Obama was educated at a radical Islamic school in Indonesia. Such reports are false. He never attended such a school.

In fact, Obama first attended a Catholic school for almost three years. However, his mother registered him in the school as a Muslim. As such, he was required to spending time each week praying with Muslim students and studying the Koran.

In the wake of the controversy over Obama's Muslim upbringing, The Los Angeles Times sent a reporter to Jakarta to ferret out the truth.

The Times report, published on March 16, 2008, revealed:

A close boyhood friend of Obama, Zulfin Adi, said Obama "was a Muslim. He went to the mosque."

Obama's first-grade teacher at a Catholic school, Israella Dharmawan, said: "Barry (Barack's nickname) was Muslim. He was registered as a Muslim because his father was Muslim."

In the third grade, Obama transferred to a public school, where he was also registered as a Muslim. At the school, Muslim students attended weekly religion lessons about Islam.

Some of these details have been confirmed by Obama himself. In his autobiography, "Dreams From My Father," Obama mentions studying the Koran and describes the public school as "a Muslim school."

Going by what Obama calls a right winger........Someone better tell that Libyan leader Mu'ammar al-Qadhafi is a 'right-winger'
Qadhafi goes on to mention that Obama should be proud of his African, Muslim dentity.

Earlier this year, Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs claimed: "Senator Obama has never been a Muslim, was not raised a Muslim, and is a committed Christian."

His campaign Web site hosts a page titled "Fight the Smears" -- which is dedicated to fighting what his campaign says are false claims about Obama and Islam.

The web page states categorically: "Senator Obama has never been a Muslim, was not raised as a Muslim, and is a committed Christian."

But the facts suggest that his campaign's statements are not exactly true.

Middle East Forum director Daniel Pipes wrote on that his research led him to conclude that "Obama was born a Muslim to a nonpracticing Muslim father and for some years had a reasonably Muslim upbringing under the auspices of his Indonesian stepfather."

After The Los Angeles Times conducted its own investigation, Gibbs amended his previous statement on behalf of Obama, telling the Times: "Obama has never been a practicing Muslim," the key word being "practicing."

The Times and other outlets that have reviewed the facts relating to Obama's upbringing as a Muslim have come under withering criticism from Obama and groups that support him.

But Pipes insists the facts are indisputable, with several pro-Obama sources confirming his ties to Islam though downplaying the intensity of his faith.

“The campaign appears to be either ignorant or fabricating when it states that ‘Obama never prayed in a mosque,’" Pipes argues.
"In sum: Obama was an irregularly practicing Muslim who rarely or occasionally prayed with his stepfather in a mosque," Pipes writes on his blog "This precisely substantiates my statement that he 'for some years had a reasonably Muslim upbringing under the auspices of his Indonesian stepfather.'"

Indisputable also is the fact that Obama says in the early 1990s he converted to Christianity after attending services at Chicago’s Trinity United Church, whose pastor was the Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr.

Obama’s campaign is clearly worried that his ties to Islam could become a major problem for swing voters.

Wild Thing's comment........

Did I mention that his middle name is HUSSEIN. But you’re not supposed to mention that, so I won’t.

"The name Barack is a derivation of "Barak" -- the horse that took the prophet Muhammad on his flight into heaven."

Listen, my children,
And you shall hear
Of the man, Barack,
A horse's rear...

Seven of 8 of Obama’s great-grandparents were muslim. When Barak (real spelling) went to school in Indonesia his mother registered him as a muslim and the school required all muslim’s to go to prayers and study the Koran at least once a week.

Barak (real spelling) himself speaks of changing his religion to Christianity approximately 20 years ago. Barak is 46 or 47 years old so for the first 26 or 27 years of his life he was not a Christian.

He was born and raised as muslim. Barak may have not practiced his muslim faith often when he became a young man, but he certainly didn’t formally renounce it either until he started attending Rev. Wright’s church at any rate.

I am just as concerned about his Marxist connections as I am his Muslim connections.

In 1997, Obama sponsored a bill in Illinois for setting aside an Islamic Day and requiring Islamic food inspections:

It did not pass:

90th General Assembly Summary of SR0110
Senate Sponsors: Obama
Short description: 11/1/97-ISLAMIC DAY
Synopsis of Bill as introduced: Declares November 1, 1997 to be South Shore Islamic Day.

What does one do on "Islamic Day" anyway? Blow up buildings?

And anolther bill:

Also Obama sponsored Illinois Senate Bill 750 creating the "Halal Food Act," providing for inspections by the Department of Agriculture to REQUIRE that all food labeled Halal is prepared according to Islamic law.
"Halal Food Act"

In his book he said he would stand with the Muslims if the political winds shifted.

Hey Hillary, leave the gun, take the canolies ~ Obama and Bill Clinton to Hold Summit

Here's what the meeting will look like between the Clinton Crime Family and the Chicago Syndicate.

Obama and Bill Clinton to Hold Summit

New York Times

Senator Barack Obama and former President Bill Clinton plan to meet for lunch on Thursday at Mr. Clinton’s offices in Harlem, their first extended face-to-face encounter after more than a year of tense relations, aides said Sunday.

The current plan is for Mr. Obama and Mr. Clinton to have lunch at the Clinton Foundation headquarters on West 125th Street in Harlem with one close aide each. There have been discussions about the men possibly then doing a walking tour of the neighborhood, but that has not been settled.

Thursday is the seventh anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and Mr. Obama will be in New York for a memorial ceremony at Ground Zero that morning with his Republican presidential rival, Senator John McCain, an event that both candidates say is intended to be non-political.

When Mr. Clinton learned that Mr. Obama would be in New York on Thursday for two appearances, he invited him to lunch at the foundation offices, aides said.

The terms of the Clinton-Obama meeting have been negotiated warily for weeks through a veil of mutual suspicion. Mr. Clinton has felt for months that Mr. Obama has not paid him the proper respect as a former president and many close to Mr. Obama believe that Mr. Clinton dealt dismissively with him during the campaign.

The icebreaker may well have been Mr. Clinton’s effusive speech at the Democratic National Convention, in which he – for the first time – declared Mr. Obama fit to be president. During the long primary season, Mr. Clinton, speaking on behalf of his wife, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, repeatedly questioned Mr. Obama’s experience and qualifications for the presidency.

In his convention speech, however, Mr. Clinton heaped praise on Mr. Obama, the new leader of the Democratic Party, and promised to do everything he could to get him elected. He acknowledged with a smile, however, that he would have preferred that Mrs. Clinton were preparing to accept the nomination.

Mr. Clinton and Mr. Obama have spoken several times on the telephone since Mr. Obama nailed down the nomination in early June, but aides described those conversations as generally businesslike, even at times frosty.

The two men spoke the Friday before the Democratic convention about Mr. Clinton’s speech and the campaign ahead, but there was no resolution of several issues, including the Obama campaign’s desire to see a copy of Mr. Clinton’s speech well in advance of its delivery the following Wednesday. Mr. Clinton did not share a draft of his speech until a couple hours of before taking to the podium in Denver.

Mr. Clinton has privately complained that Mr. Obama has courted major figures in the Democratic Party, including Senator Edward M. Kennedy, New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson and former North Carolina Senator John Edwards, while making little effort to seek Mr. Clinton’s support or guidance.

But aides said that both men are now focused intently on the fall election and have put aside whatever resentments or rivalry they may feel.

The lunch will be private and it is not known whether Mr. Clinton and Mr. Obama will have any statement afterward. But Mr. Obama and Mr. McCain have agreed to suspend all negative advertising aimed at each other on Sept. 11 and it seemed unlikely that Mr. Obama and Mr. Clinton would use their meeting for overtly partisan purposes that day.


Wild Thing's comment.........

The Clintons must be loving every minute of Obama crawling on his belly to them, kissing up for their support now.

What will be their price? Will Bill Clinton tell Obama to put some ice on it?

I think Bill Clinton will hate Obama with the heat of a thousand suns forever and ever. There is nothing Obama can do now to change that.

I’ve been watching the talking heads and everytime someone brings up the pumas they get shot down and the pumas are dismissed. If I were them watching, I’d be getting ticked - first dismissed by Obama and now laughed at and dismissed by the media.

B. Hussein and the DNC hierarchy stole the nomination from their Hillary. And they are mad as heck and they’re NOT backing down. 30% of Hillary’s 18 million voters say they’re voting for McCain.

McCain/Palin Speak at Huge Rally in Colorado Springs, Colorado

From a friend that was there.....

" Chrissie, We got up at 6am, drove to the event before 7:30am. The line of cars went back for 2 miles in 4 directions. We had to walk 25 minutes to the line. The line was 2 miles long. I have been to KISS concerts and The Who which were shorter lines. It took over an hour to get to the event in the line. Finally we got inside around 9:45am, and we were FAR in the back of the large crowd. The count of tickets for the event EXCEEDED FIFTEEN THOUSAND!! And people were still trying to get tickets and get inside around 11am while the local candidates were speaking. Finally, they just began to let anyone in, even if they did not have a ticket. These photos do NOT do justice, as you cannot really judge the depth or width of the hanger space."

McCain - Palin Rally in Colorado Springs, Colorado

Rally today in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The rally will began at 11:00 AM local Mountain time.

Here are my notes from the Rally.............................

Retired U.S. Army nurse Anne Lucas holds a shirt reading "Pitbulls for Palin" at a campaign rally with U.S. Republican presidential nominee Senator John McCain (R-AZ) and Republican vice-presidential nominee Alaska Governor Sarah Palin in Colorado Springs, Colorado September 6, 2008.

Cheerleaders from local schools leading crowd in chants...Blue red and White...Fight Mccain Fight

Campaign staff say more than 10,000 people are expected to crowd into and overflow out of an airplane hangar at the Colorado Springs airport. They began lining up as early as 5:30 a.m., even though doors for the event didn’t open until 9 a.m.

Palin is scheduled to start speaking at 12:30 p.m., followed by McCain.

By the time doors did open, traffic jammed for miles around the airport and the line of people waiting to get in wound for several hundred yards around large hangars.

“We wanted to be here for this memorable day,” explained Patricia Strawser, who left her Denver house with her husband, Tom, at 5 a.m.

They arrived at the airport at 6 a.m. and found 50 people already in line ahead of them.

“I’ve never done anything like this before,” said Tom Strawser, who wore a cowboy hat adorned with little American flags. “Nothing.”

The crowd was made up of both veterans of political rallies and first-timers.

The reporters on earlier said there were far more people trying to get in to the event than they had room for. The crowd was estimated at more than 11,000.


They passed out the flags that the Dems just decided they would throw away - veterans passing out the flags to the crowd. OMG I love this!

They announced that they are distributing flags that were thrown away at the DNC. The man speaking named a man who had rescued the flags. He apologized that there were many flags that were unsaveable, but they saved what they could.

The discarded flags now waving proudly!!!!!!!!!!!! They were really waving when Lee Greenwood's song "I'm proud to be an American" was sung.

I have goosebumps and tears watching this.

McCain was criticizing Carter’s decision to ban the reprocessing of nuclear fuel and said there is now a pro-American President of France “which just proves if you live long enough anything is possible!”

McCain attacking

Talking about Obama not voting to condemn General Betray Us ad! Good job, Mac.

Palin is adding new material into every speech. There were two new sections today. That’s smart. Repetition is how people learn. They must keep drilling many of the same points home in every speech, and mix in a few new sections with each event. The lines she is delivering are so good, and delivered so well, people look forward to hearing her say them even if they’ve seen them on TV before.

Fox News reporting that Obama camp states that flags were stolen. Obama is such a jerk.

UPDATE this evening about this rallly:
The Colorado Springs Police Department declined to provide an estimate of the crowd size, but a campaign spokesman, Tom Kise, said 13,000 had gone through security checks.

Michelle Obama Disses Palin and Promises Gay Adoption rights

Michelle Obama disses Palin, promises gay adoption rights


While Sarah Palin was speaking to the Republican National Convention Wednesday night, Michelle Obama was hitting two Hollywood fundraisers, giving subtly different messages to different audiences.

Patrick Range McDonald of LA Weekly, who covered the events as the designated pool reporter. Here's his description of the first stop of the night:

Dressed in a purple tank top with a purple floral skirt and black high heels, Obama first addressed a largely gay and lesbian audience at the home of Bryan Lourd, managing partner of Creative Artists Agency (CAA), and Bruce Bozzi, Lourd's companion.

The event was described by the Obama campaign as an "LGBT Reception." Approximately 300 donors attended the fund raiser, which took place in the wealthy, Los Angeles neighborhood of Holmby Hills. Minimum contribution for a guest was $1,000 to get through the door. Supporters who raised $25,000 were given access to a VIP room, where Obama met with them and briefly spoke. All money went to the Obama Victory Fund.

Speaking at the fundraiser, Mrs. Obama insinuated that she doesn't think Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is very bright:

Obama then moved on to politics, where she first brought up her husband's vice-presidential choice.

"I think it was a really good pick--Senator Joe Biden," she said, and later added, "People say they have amazing chemistry, and it's true."
Obama continued with talk about Biden when she said, "What you learn about Barack from his choice is that he's not afraid of smart people." The crowd softly chuckled.

Later, she spoke about gay rights:

Mindful of the audience in front of her, she then touched up gay and lesbian issues. "In a world as it should be," Obama said, "we repeal laws like DOMA (the Defense of Marriage Act) and 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell.'" She also said an Obama Administration would "recognize" gay adoption rights. Both lines received loud applause. Later that evening she spoke at a fundraiser at the home of Samuel L. Jackson:

Located in the gated community of Beverly Park Estates South in the city of Beverly Hills, approximately 300 people attended the event. Minimum contribution for a guest was $2,300, with VIP access for supporters who raised $25,000. All money went to the Obama Victory Fund. Another star-studded crowd was on hand. Among the celebrities were actor Denzel Washington, actress and singer Barbra Streisand, actor and Streisand's husband, James Brolin, former Lakers star Magic Johnson, actress Scarlett Johansson, actor Ryan Reynolds, and former California governor Gray Davis.

Guests gathered poolside in the backyard of Jackson's home and drank red and white wine. Golden shallot pancakes with brie and fig preserves and grilled vegetable torte bites with roasted pepper sauce were served. Bread & Butter Catering provided the food at both fund raisers.

she spoke about gay rights:

"Mindful of the audience in front of her, she then touched up gay and lesbian issues. "In a world as it should be," Obama said, "we repeal laws like DOMA (the Defense of Marriage Act) and 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell.'" She also said an Obama Administration would "recognize" gay adoption rights. Both lines received loud applause."

Even in front of a presumably gay-friendly, left-wing Hollywood audience, part of her earlier remarks were omitted from the second appearance:

Obama did not mention anything about gay issues, but much of the rest of the speech was the same.

Wild Thing's comment.........

Michelle will not learn her lesson. Here she goes again mouthing off and attacking Palin this time. Now we are supposed to do what, keep quiet and let her think she can get away with that kind of thing? I think not!

I had to look LGBT up in Google. hahaha I lived all those years in Malibu, Calif. and had no idea what LGBT was.

Not pretty YUK here is what it is.....

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender = LGBT

And they are also at Obama's campaign website

Obama continued with talk about Biden when she said, "What you learn about Barack from his choice is that he's not afraid of smart people." The crowd softly chuckled.

Yeah, flap your jaw you Affirmative Action Poster Child.

She calls Sarah stupid, I hate to inform you Michelle but here it goes........Gay adoption rights will go over like a lead balloon with 60-70% of the electorate.

"Guests gathered poolside in the backyard of Jackson's home and drank red and white wine. Golden shallot pancakes with brie and fig preserves and grilled vegetable torte bites with roasted pepper sauce were served."

I would still be hungry and have to go by the drive-through on the way home. heh heh I mean I have eaten like that and I can tell you it does not last long. haha

"In a world as it should be," Obama said...

There's that phrase again. These two are really full of themselves, aren't they? They'd be laughable if their Marxist vision for this nation "as it should be" weren't so chilling.

Speaking at the fundraiser, Mrs. Obama insinuated that she doesn't think Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is very bright:

Why? Because she didn’t get an Affirmative Action pass to Princeton and Harvard Law ? Because she wasn’t promoted to a $320K/year job when her husband got elected to high office? Just how is it Mrs. Obama doesn’t think a woman who got herself elected Governor of a state isn’t very bright ?

Can you imagine the furor if Todd Palin commented about Michelle at a fundraiser?

Now that Michelle has injected herself into the Palin mix, the gloves can come off with her too. Leave family outta it, my ass, Barack.

Can't wait to see Palin smack this b!tch down. Just get a copy of her thesis and read from it. We'll see who 'isn't intelligent' enough.

"Obama Administration would "recognize" gay adoption rights"

OK, this is something that really tiicks me off. I am adotped and if it would have been possible to ask me do you want to be adopted by two men or two women? A-hem I would have yelled out....No effing way! ..... as I came out of the womb.

I mean it, please this is soooo against all things Godly. I mean it! There is NO way Michelle and Obama are Christians NO WAY!

Wittle B. Hussein Obama At Bon Jovi Event: 'We Won't Be Bullied'

Obama At Bon Jovi Event: 'We Won't Be Bullied'

Presidential Nominee Vows To Fight Back Against Character Attacks Better Than John Kerry Did In '04

Democrat Barack Obama turned Friday to rock legend Jon Bon Jovi for help.



Bon Jovi and his wife, Dorothea, hosted more than 100 people for dinner on their mansion lawn by the Navesink River in Middletown, N.J. The price was $30,800 a person, to be divided between the Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

"When I look at Barack, I see an old man," Bon Jovi said in introducing his guest. Obama is 47, Bon Jovi is 46.

Obama spoke for about eight minutes before greeting guests individually. He vowed to fight Republican attacks on his character and background more fiercely than John Kerry did in his losing campaign four years ago.

"We're not going to be bullied, we're not going to be smeared, we're not going to be lied about," Obama said. "I don't believe in coming in second."

Earlier in the evening, Obama attended a $2,300-per-person reception at the nearby home of veteran party fundraiser Phil Murphy. About 200 people, including the Bon Jovis and New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine, attended.

“I hope you guys are game,” he said, “because I haven’t been putting up with 19 months of airplanes and hotel food and missing my babies and my wife –- I didn’t put up for that stuff just to come in second. I don’t believe in coming in second. The American people can’t afford for us to come in second. We’ve got to win this thing and we’re going to win it with your help.”
Obama said that the assignment of his Republican opponents is “to see if they can snuff out that spirit in this campaign and to knock me down more than one peg,” he said. “The reason that events like this are so important, we’ve got to have the resources and the energy and the determination to say ‘No’ to that. To say ‘enough.’ We’re not going to be bullied, we’re not going to be smeared, we’re not going to be lied about. We’re not going to resort to the same tactics, but we are going to confront them.”

And this one..............

Don’t Believe in Coming in Second,’ Obama Tells Bon Jovi Fundraiser
September 05, 2008 10:18 PM

NEWARK, N.J. — Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., hit a couple swanky Garden State fundraisers this evening, starting at the house of Democratic National Committee treasurer Phil Murphy and his wife Tammy.

“Are you guys fired up?” bellowed Gov. Jon Corzine to the $2,300-per-person crowd. “You better be, because I think you’re liquored up!”

Obama again said that the GOP convention didn’t discuss solutions to problems facing ordinary Americans, unlike the Democratic gathering.

“The Republicans had a different approach to their convention,” he said. “They had a different theory, which was that ‘We are just sarcastic. We spent a lot of time talking about John McCain’s admittedly compelling biography, and we spent a lot of time lying about Barack’ — that, somehow that’s a political philosophy or an economic theory.”

Obama told the appreciative crowd, “They don’t have a record to run on, so what they’re going to do is they’re going to try and just tear me down. Because it worked four years ago, and it worked eight years ago, you can’t blame them for trying it again, but I don’t think it’s going to work this time.”


Wild Thing's comment.........

Is that mean governor from Alaska picking on you Hussein??

re: “we won’t be bullied”

oooooh, Obama’s scared of a g-i-r-l

LOL Waaaa Waaaa! This kid beat me up at school and her name was Sarah!!!! Waaaaaaa!

They wont be bullied? After the savaging these animals have given Sarah Palin? Yo Hussein, fewer and fewer people are buying the garbage you are peddling.

Doesn’t he see how defensive he’s become? it’s funny to watch... this is part of the unraveling of terrorists associator.

The self proclaimed champion of the common man goes to a $30,000 a head fund-raising dinner and sees no irony whatsoever in hanging out with a rock star! LMAO I tell you. hahhaha

Obama is the manipulator and bully and race card peddler.

Crowd Enthusiastic About McCain-Palin Rally In New Mexico

McCain, Palin wow supporters with a big entrance in Albuquerque


Republican presidential nominee John McCain was introduced Saturday night by Hollywood actor and Oscar winner Robert Duval at the Albuquerque Convention Center. But Duval wasn’t the biggest surprise of the night.

That came in the way McCain entered the convention center: in an entrance worthy of any rock star, the Straight Talk Express drove straight into the convention center, emerging from a smokescreen to ignite thousands of supporters.

“We must win New Mexico,” McCain said to the crowd after his introduction. “There is no doubt we are going to win New Mexico,” McCain added to a cheering crowd that waved McCain/Palin signs and small American flags in the air.

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who joined McCain in his latest visit to New Mexico, received a rock star’s welcome as well, fresh off her performance at the Republican National Convention. The crowd chanted “Palin! Palin! Palin!” numerous times during the rally – even when she wasn’t speaking. Palin also continued her role as the “pit bull with lipstick” in attacking Obama.

“There are those candidates who use change to promote their careers,” Palin told the crowd. “And then there are candidates like John McCain who use their careers to promote change.”

She attacked Obama and praised McCain by saying, “He’s the only man in this race who’s got what it takes to lead this country” and “There is only one man in this election who has ever really fought for you.”

One teenage Palin fan beamed as she showed off her autograph from Palin on her hand.

Wild Thing's comment.......

Great responses and another 'packed house' as they say. Thank God because we cannot let Obama win!!!

The left is really throwing everything they can come up with at Sarah Palin. I never saw anything like it in my life. Honestly if they keep this up the Republican party is going to have to get some big guns out to speak out about Obama on Ayers, Hamas endorsement, PLO fund raisers for Obama and his saying the most beautiful thing he ever heard was the Islam call to prayer.

I have no idea who their big guns would be but someone that can get on the talking head shows and fight back. There is stuff out there I will not post here, gossip type of things that I will not post at my blog.

Obama is the one with the associations that are terrorists and law breakers and America haters and known racists. NOT McCain and Palin.

Obama is the one that has a wife with an ugly soul that dishes out her not being proud to be an American. And both she and Barack with their bringing race into things. NOT McCain and Palin.

This election is life or death for America and she looks to her Patriots to defend her and keep her the land of the free. With Obama America will take on a whole new meaning and represent something ugly and sick just like Obama is in what he thinks and wants to do to our country.

McCain Camp ‘Rescues’ Flags From Obama Rally

McCain Camp ‘Rescues’ Flags From Obama Rally

On August 29th, I post ...... Democrats Trash Old Glory, and YES Democrats Are NOT Patriotic! ..... I shared with you how the Democrats were given our American Flag to have for their Convention. Once the convention was over the Flags were found on the ground with the rest of the trash to be thrown away. -- Wild Thing

I was shocked and posted about it. I was angry and this was just another thing the Democrats have done to prove and I do mean PROVE they are NOT Patriotic and could care less about our Flag and our country. --Wild Thing

A worker at Invesco Field in Denver saved thousands of unused flags from the Democratic National Convention that were headed for the garbage. Guerrilla campaigning. They will use these flags at their own event today in Colorado Springs with John McCain and Sarah Palin.

Before McCain speaks today, veterans will haul these garbage bags filled with flags out onto the stage — with dramatic effect, no doubt — and tell the story. The flags are on their way to a McCain Palin rally in Colorado Springs where the Boy Scouts and Veterans of Foreign Wars will distribute them to the GOP faithful.

From Fox News

McCain supporters, claiming they rescued 12,000 miniature American flags from the site of Barack Obama’s nomination acceptance speech last Thursday, redistributed the orphan flags to audience members ahead of a McCain rally in Colorado Springs on Saturday.

McCain supporters said the flags were discovered by a vendor at Denver’s Invesco Field after the conclusion of the Democratic National Convention. The vendor supposedly found trash bags full of flags in and near garbage bins, and turned them over to the McCain campaign.

Boy Scouts were sorting through 84 bags of flags in Colorado on Saturday, before a McCain supporter had veterans distribute them to the audience.

“We want to find good homes for these flags,” radio host Dan Caplis said at the rally, adding that whatever flags remained would be placed at memorials throughout Colorado.

Audience members, who booed when Caplis announced that the flags were left in Denver, waved the flags and chanted “U.S.A” before McCain arrived at the rally with his running mate, Sarah Palin.

Damon Jones, spokesman for the Democratic National Convention Committee, released a statement saying McCain should applaud the fact that thousands of American flags were “proudly waved” at their convention.

“But instead his supporters wrongfully took leftover bundles of our flags from the stadium to play out a cheap political stunt calling into question our patriotism,” he said.

Obama has faced attacks on his patriotism since the beginning of the Democratic primary race and has set up a Web site specifically designed to fight such charges.

The McCain campaign has denied questioning Obama’s patriotism, and even released a statement Friday calling Obama’s most recent comments on the matter “hysterical.”

Wild Thing's comment.......

To Democrats American Flag's are is merely "props". "Props" that had served their purpose and were now to be discarded along with the styrofoam Greek columns. AMERICAN flags discarded like so much used Kleenex.

Libs HATE the flag - that's why they burn it so often. I am only surprised that so many of them were willing to hold them long enough for the cameras to capture that historic moment.

To the Democrats, this election is not about the country, it's about the Democrats. To Obama, it's about Obama. Love of country, in their order of priorities, comes somewhere after ‘free’ government money and the latest edition of the stupid horrible Oprah show..............way after.

McCain, Palin Fire Up Cedarburg, Wisconsin


Note the sign that says...... Read my Lipstick!


Here is a local news report on the rally held by John McCain and Sarah Palin in Cedarburg, Wisconsin, September 5, 2008.

The reporter says State Troopers estimate that a crowd of 20,000-30,0000 turned out to greet them, far more than the expected .

This video has me crying. Remember how Obama had that rock group play before he spoke .They were a socialist communist rock group and played anti-government songs.

Here in this video is what America is to me. The National Anthem and people loving Americia with all their hearts and wanting the best for our country. -- Wild Thing

McCain, Palin fire up Cedarburg crowd Cedarburg - At a packed street rally here this morning, Republican John McCain used his first post-convention stop to promise a war on special-interest influence and excessive partisanship in Washington, D.C.

"We're going to start to work for the people of this country," McCain shouted. "It's over for the special interests. It's over!"

The Arizona senator joined Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, his vice presidential pick, in front of an ice cream shop on a well-preserved main street the city says is virtually unchanged since 1900.

Without mentioning specifics in a brief address downtown, McCain said the duo would visit small towns across America to talk about real change.

Palin drew the loudest cheers and chants of "Sarah! Sarah! Sarah!" Both repeated popular lines from their convention speeches.

~ McCain, Obama tied in TV audiences!! ~

McCain, Obama tied in TV audiences



As a television draw, John McCain was every bit the equal of Barack Obama.
The GOP presidential candidate attracted roughly the same number of viewers to his convention acceptance speech Thursday as Obama did before the Democrats last week, according to Nielsen Media Research.

It marked the end of an astonishing run where more than 40 million people watched political speeches on three nights by Obama, McCain and Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin. The Republican convention was the most-watched convention on television ever, beating a standard set by the Democrats a week earlier.

Three times in two weeks, political speeches were watched by more people than the "American Idol" finale, the Academy Awards and the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics this year.

"It clearly suggests that a great number of Americans think that who will be the next president is important and worthy of their time," said Tom Rosenstiel, a former political reporter and director of the Project for Excellence in journalism.

Television ratings throughout the primary season had already indicated an intense interest in the election, but viewers clearly were more fascinated in the Democratic contest between Obama and Hillary Clinton than the Republican nomination fight.

This week's ratings, with an average of 34.5 million viewers watching the GOP convention over three days, proved people are becoming more interested in what the Republicans have to say. The Democrats had an average audience of 30.2 million over four days, Nielsen said.

"No one really thought they had it in them in terms of pulling off this amazing convention," said Jay Wallace, vice president for news and editorial at Fox News Channel. But Hurricane Gustav pulled people into the news networks over the weekend, he said. People were also intensely curious about McCain's pick of Palin as a running mate, he said.

Nielsen said that 38.9 million people watched McCain accept the GOP nomination Thursday on either ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, Fox News Channel or MSNBC. PBS, which has a more imprecise estimate based on samples in a few big cities, said 3.5 million watched on its network.

Last week, Obama's speech in Denver was seen by 38.4 million on 10 different commercial networks, and an additional 4 million on PBS.

Add it up, and that's McCain, 42.4 million, to Obama, 42.4 million.

No one can really tell who truly had the biggest audience, since C-SPAN also showed the speeches, and Nielsen doesn't measure the cable channel's viewers. But if the presidential vote is this close on Nov. 4, it will be a long night.

McCain may have caught a break Thursday when the opening NFL game between the New York Giants and Washington Redskins finished a couple of minutes before the Republican took the stage, Wallace said.

More men (17.9 million) watched McCain speak than watched Obama (16.2 million), Nielsen said.

"The storylines this year have been so amazing," Wallace said. "It really got started with Hillary and Obama—that got everyone in middle America watching. They got caught up in the drama of it."

The numbers put to rest the thought that politics has been a turnoff and death for ratings, which has long been gospel at the TV networks, Rosenstiel said.

That has particularly applied to convention coverage, which broadcast networks have backed away from over the years because executives saw them as stage-managed events. ABC, CBS and NBC each added an hour this year to convention coverage, but it didn't halt one trend: Viewers are just as likely to watch the conventions on cable news networks.

Fox was the most-watched network all three nights of the GOP convention, duplicating its feat from the 2004 GOP convention. CNN was the most popular destination for Obama's speech.

Fox had 9.2 million viewers for McCain's speech, followed by NBC—which aired the football game—at 8.7 million. ABC, CBS, CNN and MSNBC followed in order, Nielsen said.

Joe Biden Using the old Muhammad Ali “rope a dop” On Palin

Joe Biden on CNN Predicts Sarah Palin Will Win the Debate

Sarah Palin vs Joe Biden CNN interview

John Roberts quizzes Joe Biden for his views on Sarah Palin's great speech and he mentions the future debate with her.


Wild Thing's comment..........

He has Barracuda Phobia haha

Governor Palin has him shacking in his boots. Can you sense the fear in him of having to go up against her? He just witnessed what she did to Obama. She will soon be setting her spotting scope on him.

He can’t win unless she falls apart, and that isn’t going to happen, so I think he is covering his bases ahead of time. He is no nice guy this is all to protect his butt. And he is setting her up. Biden is a stuffed shirt liberal but he isn’t stupid. He knows that he loses if he comes off mean or condescending to Palin. So he finds himself in the position of playing down the debate, chastising the media on her behalf, and setting expectations for her very high.

The game is all about beating expectations. There’s been too much hype over her speech - if she doesn’t blow Biden out of the water, it will be viewed as a failure. it is all strategy. he is over building her up (too much). he is building up excessive expectations. japanese would say “kadai hyouka”`....then the whole mass media chorus will say, “disappointment" and they will go on and on how she is not up for being a VP.

We all know she can do it, but they are giving too much rope......I don't like it. Even the man asking Biden the questions points this out. Biden tries to laugh what he says off but he knows John Roberts is saying the truth about what he ( Biden) is donig.

Heh, it’d be cool if Palin could work this into her campaign speeches and thank Biden for the vote of confidence but that she prefers to actually have the debate before declaring a winner. hahaha

Yes he's being smart, but she is smarter. This is just another transparent attempt to set a trap for her. I doubt that he’s ever really trapped anything in his life and she’s probably set many a trap line with Todd. There’s just no substitute for a home grown Alaskan upbringing.

Personally I think she'll have him for lunch.

Alaskans to media: Bring it on !

Alaskans to media: Bring it on

Republican delegates confident Palin has nothing to hide


ST. PAUL, Minn. – Alaska delegates heading home after a giddy week here watching Sarah Palin enter the world stage as John McCain's running mate will face a bevy of reporters probing every nook and cranny of their popular governor's life and work, but their attitude is: Bring it on.

"Let 'em come," said delegate Dave Lewis an operations analyst in Eagle River, Alaska. "I don't think their digging is going to do anything more than present a picture of who Governor Palin is, what she has done and where she can take us."

Palin, along with her husband, Todd, joined John and Cindy McCain on stage last night at the Republican National Convention after the Arizona senator formally accepted his nomination in a speech highlighting his career in the Navy, five years as a POW in Hanoi and 26 years in Congress.

McCain told the delegates last night he had "found just the right partner to help me shake up Washington."

The delegates voted earlier in the evening to make official the convention's nomination of Palin, whose own speech, Wednesday night, fired up the GOP faithful and drew widespread praise.

"It's been surreal for us," Lewis said, summing up the week. "When do you ever get a chance to come from a small state where the next vice president of the United States is your governor? It is just great."

Lewis said Alaskans are "looking forward to the rest of the country and the world understanding what a fine governor we've had, what a fine person, and how much she can contribute not only to the ticket but to changing the things that Sen. McCain talked about tonight."

Responding to the harsh media spotlight on Palin, Alaska delegate Mead Treadwell, a venture capitalist in Anchorage who has worked with the governor in numerous capacities, argued it's possible to "find things about anybody if you tell half the story."

'"But when you see the full story, I don't think they are going to lay a glove on her," he said.

Among the issues raised is Palin's firing of Alaska's public safety commissioner, Walt Monegan, who claims he was let go because he refused to dismiss the governor's brother-in-law, a state trooper going through a messy divorce with her sister. Palin denies any wrongdoing.

If Palin raised some questions about a trooper, it was to protect her family," Treadwell said.

Other members of the state's delegation contend it's clear Monegan should have fired the trooper for gross misbehavior, such as driving drunk on the job and Tasing a young teen.

Treadwell sees the personal issues brought up against Palin – such as unwed daughter Bristol's pregnancy – as off-limits, noting his mother was in Bristol's shoes, and he wouldn't be around if she had taken a different course.

Questions have been raised about whether the campaign properly vetted Palin, but McCain staffers contend they were aware of the matters raised by media and fierce critics of the new vice presidential candidate.

Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah noted in an interview with WND at the convention that Palin was vetted by former White House counsel Arthur Culvahouse.

"He's one of the best attorneys in the country, one of the toughest guys. You don't get by him with anything," Hatch said.

The Washington Post reported Tuesday that an in-depth interview meeting with Culvahouse didn't take place until Aug. 27, one day before McCain decided on Palin. But campaign advisers said they had collected information about Palin before the meeting, including details of the firing of the safety commissioner, Monegan.

In his speech last night, McCain praised Palin as a leader with "executive experience and a real record of accomplishment."
"She's tackled tough problems like energy independence and corruption," McCain said. "She's balanced a budget, cut taxes and taken on the special interests."
McCain said Palin "knows where she comes from, and she knows who she works for. She stands up for what's right, and she doesn't let anyone tell her to sit down."
"I'm very proud to have introduced our next vice president to the country," McCain said. "But I can't wait until I introduce her to Washington. And let me offer an advance warning to the old, big-spending, do-nothing, me-first, country-second Washington crowd: Change is coming."

While Palin's "Washington outsider" image resonates as a campaign theme, for even many of her supporters it underscores the question of whether she is qualified to handle foreign policy issues.

Treadwell – who has worked with Palin on international relations and environmental and energy issues – said the governor is very bright and repeatedly has demonstrated she's a quick study who does her homework before confronting any issue.

"I think it's going to be great that we have a vice president who knows and understands people," he said. "People say a "heartbeat from the presidency." She's got the heartbeat of America."
Treadwell said he did not support Palin in her run for lieutenant governor, and "I've learned the hard way not to underestimate this woman."

He has worked with her on numerous diplomatic endeavors, including one on energy two weeks ago with Arctic parliamentarians. Treadwell said he also has teamed with Palin on U.S.-Russia relations and talks with the president of Iceland on geothermal resources.

The governor conducts sessions such as these like any other meeting, according to Treadwell.

"She does her homework, she comes into the meeting, she says, 'How can we make a deal, what's in our common interest?' And we move on."

Treadwell said he was with Palin in another meeting to help elect an Alaska senator.

"I had read something that morning, I passed it across the table, and she said, 'Yeah,'" acknowledging she had digested its contents," Treadwell recalled. "It was one of the more obscure policy wonk things that you might get in the mail in Washington, and she'd been up to it."

Treadwell called her "a student of politics and a student of what's right."

She has challenged oil companies when they don't produce, but her approach is to help them become more competitive, he said.

Also, her attempt to lower health care costs, instinctively, was to say let's be more competitive, he pointed out.

Treadwell, who serves on the board of a small airline in Alaska, said Palin's challenge to the airline industry in the state is, "You guys can't have a monopoly."

"Now that's a refreshing kind of Republican," he said. "That's a Teddy Roosevelt Republican. And I think you're going to find Sarah Palin is a very, very good colleague."

As the convention wound down last night amid popping balloons and confetti-strewn aisles, former House speaker Newt Gingrich summed up the mood. Speaking to the Fox News Channel's Greta van Sustren, he said he's been to seven conventions, and this one was the "happiest," because of Palin.

"I think the very audacity of Palin has given everyone a sense that McCain is the real thing," Gingrich said, "and we're going to go out and fundamentally change Washington, and we're going to do it with energy and courage."

I love it!

One of the radio talk shows requested for only people living in Alaska to call and they would put their calls through right away. One after the other called the host to tell him ( Bill Bennett) how he or she and their entire State loved Sarah. How they referred to her as.... Sarah. How their son played Hockey with her son. How they would see her at the grocery store and visit like any of us would, all the things that so many politicians soon forget when they are elected to office including Gov.'s of a State.

It was so refreshing to hear each called share how they knew her and some moment that they could share to let others have a glimpse into Sarah Palin.

This article touched me the same way. I love how the delegates feel the way they do like a real team. I love things like that.

Sarah Palin: it's go west, towards the future of conservatism

Sarah Palin: it's go west, towards the future of conservatism

Times Online

Her thrilling convention speech showed that the Governor of Alaska is a force to reckoned with. But she might be more than that.

The best line I heard about Sarah Palin during the frenzied orgy of chauvinist condescension and gutter-crawling journalistic intrusion that greeted her nomination for vice-president a week ago came from a correspondent who knows a thing or two about Alaska.

“What's the difference between Sarah Palin and Barack Obama?”

“One is a well turned-out, good-looking, and let's be honest, pretty sexy piece of eye-candy.

“The other kills her own food.”

Now we know, thanks to her triumphant debut at the Republican convention on Wednesday, that Mrs Palin not only slaughters her prey. She impales its head on a stick and parades it around for her followers to jeer at. For half an hour she eviscerated Mr Obama in that hall and did it all without dropping her sweet schoolmarm smile, as if she were handing out chocolates at the end of a history lesson.

There's a powerful danger in the sheer thrill that has followed her astonishing performance that we could get carried away with John McCain's running-mate. Some of the coverage has a hyperbolic tone to it. Not since Paris handed that apple to Aphrodite has a man's selection of a woman had such implications for the future of our civilisation.

So let's stipulate one obvious and important piece of wisdom about US elections. The choice of a vice-presidential candidate rarely makes much of a difference. The pundit class waxes historical in the excitement of the moment but usually the vice-presidential choices go back to playing second banana. However mawkishly we dwell on the mortality of the presidential contenders, it is they who determine the voters' decision.

This one, to be fair, could be different. For at least the next few weeks the press will follow Mrs Palin's present and dig deeper into her past, still hoping for some morsel of stupidity or evidence of cupidity to doom her. But in the end, barring such a discovery, this is still an Obama-McCain contest.

But let me try to explain why Mrs Palin, whatever impact she might have in November, may be a figure of real consequence in our lives.

It's partly about what she represents and partly about what she has already done, but mostly about where she and her ilk might take the Republicans - and possibly America.

It never ceases to amaze me how the Left falls again and again into the old trap of underestimating politicians whom they don't understand. From Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher to George Bush and Mrs Palin, they do it every time. Because these characters talk a bit funny and have ridiculously antiquated views about faith, family and nation, because they haven't spent time bending the knee to the intellectual metropolitan elites, they can't be taken seriously.

So the general expectation was that Mrs Palin would stumble on to the stage in high heels, clutching her sprawling, slightly odd family (five children! how weird), mispronounce the name of the Russian Prime Minister, mutter a few platitudes about God, and disappear for ever to a deafening chorus of sniggers.

No one paid much attention to the fact that she had been elected governor of a state. Or that she got to that office not because, unlike some politicians I could mention, her husband had been there before her, or because she bleated continuously about glass ceilings, but by challenging the entrenched interests in her own party and beating them. In almost two years as Governor she has cleaned out the Augean stables of Alaskan Government. You don't win a statewide election and enjoy approval ratings of more than 80 per cent without real political talent.

Never mind all that. She didn't have a passport! She was a former beauty queen! It was so axiomatic that she was a disaster that I was told by lots of savvy men - with deliciously unconscious sexism - that the real problem was what the choice said about Mr McCain and his judgment: cynical, irresponsible, clueless. It was as if Mrs Palin wasn't really a human being at all, but an article of Mr McCain's clothing that showed his poor taste, like wearing brown shoes with a charcoal suit.

So here's why she matters.

First of all she offers an opportunity for an ailing Republican party to reconnect with ordinary Americans. She's conservative, but her conservatism is not that of the intolerant, uncomprehending white male sort that has so hurt the party in recent years. She is much closer to a model of the lives of ordinary Americans - working mother, plainspoken everywoman juggling home and office - than any Republican leader in memory.

The contrast with Mr Obama is especially powerful. The very fact that Mrs Palin didn't go to elite schools but succeeded nonetheless - the very ordinariness with which she so piquantly jabbed Mr Obama on Wednesday - is what will make her so appealing to Americans. And as a pro-life conservative she debunks in one swoop the enduring myth that all women subscribe to the obligatory nostrums of radical feminism.

But there's more to it than that.

The Republicans have decided that they are not going to make the mistake Hillary Clinton made and run against the effervescent Mr Obama on the premise of experience.

Experience hasn't got Americans into a very comfortable place. They want change. Before he signed up to some of the less attractive Republican attitudes this year, Mr McCain's career had embodied that change - the anti-establishment candidate running against his own party. Now he is joined by a woman who, in her short career, has done the same thing.

Democrats think that Mr McCain, with the social conservative Mrs Palin, will launch an old-fashioned culture war at them, using her appealing manner to drive a populist assault on the familiar Republican issues of God, guns and gays.

Perhaps this Manichean interpretation will prove true. But I suspect that it misses the real appeal of the Republican team. The opportunity for McCain-Palin is not reaction, but reform - a reform rooted in a distant conservatism that could be due for a comeback

Hailing from Arizona and Alaska, the Republican ticket has a chance to rekindle a western conservatism different from the old Yankee paternalist sort or the Bible Belt version. They like their guns out there (some still kill their own food) and they are pro-life and deeply pro-America, of course. But at a time of grave challenges, the themes of economic freedom and opportunity, the resistance to the idea that government holds all the answers, could resonate with voters.

This is an election, as the Democrats have realised all along, about an America on the cusp of change. With the moose-hunting, establishment-taunting Mrs Palin at his side, Mr McCain might represent a bigger change than the one that his opponents are offering.

Rudy Giuliani Full Speech at the RNC

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani at the 2008 Republican National Convention.


Wild Thing's comment........

In case some of you missed Rudy's speech at the RNC convention. He gave one heck of a speech. LOL And I love how he zaps the left. hahaha He did it in such a wonderfully mocking way. It couldn’t have been more perfect if he had just sat there laughing every time Obama’s name came up. They (libs) hate humor, and they hate being belittled. Rudy did both in such a wonderful way.

He had the Convention electrified. I didn’t think his speech could be topped...and then right after his speech Sarah Palin gave hers and she brought the house down. What an awesome night that whole evening was.

Obama Calls Penn State The "Nittaly Lions"

Wild Thing's comment........

This guy is an elitist intelligentsia moron! 57 states; “Nitally” Lions; breathalizers for asthma sufferers. Can this guy be more clueless? No resume, no accomplishments, no experience, no original ideas, no understanding of how the economy works, no understanding of how the world works, no balls, nothing but abstract empty rhetoric devoid of real substance.

Rush Limbaugh played this on his show today.

The hell with Obama! The realization that they are fighting a lost cause just smacked the dems and their surrogates across the face.

Their “Change” theme has just been usurped by people who actually have accomplished something.

Keep wowin’ ‘em in Pennsylvania!

And a few days ago he called Governor Palin’s home town Wasilly, instead of Wasilla.

Just one more thing. If Obama really cared about Americans he would take more care in knowing who he was talking to and talking about, more care in where he was and for God's sake how many States there are.

He is stupid, he could care less, he just uses this country. Go the heck back Kenya jerk and take your wife with you.

Hey Obama we don't forget and we won't let you forget what you said :

"And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."

Obama Enlists Clinton To Help Counter Palin

Obama enlists Clinton to help counter Palin

Star Tribune

Rapid-response team of female surrogates is being readied to take on the Republican ticket.

Sen. Barack Obama will increasingly lean on prominent Democratic women to undercut Gov. Sarah Palin and Sen. John McCain, dispatching Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton to Florida on Monday and creating a rapid-response team to deploy female surrogates to battleground states, Obama advisers said Thursday.

Clinton's campaign event in Florida, her first for Obama since the Democratic convention, will include a forceful response to the searing attacks and fresh burst of energy that Palin injected into the race with her convention speech on Wednesday, Obama aides said.

With the McCain-Palin team courting undecided female voters, including some who backed Clinton in the Democratic primaries, Obama aides said they were counting on not only Clinton but also Democratic female governors to criticize Palin -- and, by extension, McCain. Those governors include Janet Napolitano of Arizona and Kathleen Sebelius of Kansas.

Within the Obama campaign and among Democratic officials nationwide, talks are well under way about how the party should treat Palin in the campaign -- and what Obama and his running mate, Sen. Joseph Biden, need to do to regain the offensive after the Republican convention.

Some Democrats were urging Obama's campaign not to underestimate the potential power of Palin's speech.

On liberal talk-radio shows and on left-leaning blogs, some Democrats said the Obama campaign should fight back hard to avoid being caricatured as Sen. John Kerry was four years ago when he ran against President Bush. Some party strategists warned that Palin's personal narrative as a "hockey mom" with a special-needs child would appeal to some undecided women.

"What McCain has done with Governor Palin's nomination is aim right at a demographic that Obama needs to address quickly: noncollege-educated women," said Mike McCurry, a former spokesman in the Clinton White House.

Advisers to Obama predicted that the buzz over Palin would fade and that the race would quickly turn back into a contest between McCain and Obama, despite the McCain campaign's efforts to compare Obama's experience unfavorably to Palin's. At the same time, even as Democratic researchers pore over Palin's record in Alaska, the rapid-response team is settnig up in Chicago to dispatch female surrogates around the country.

David Axelrod, the Obama campaign's chief political strategist, said Obama would not raise questions about Palin's experience. Axelrod said the campaign would work instead to impress upon voters the seriousness of the race and continue to try to link the McCain-Palin team to Bush.


Wild Thing's comment........

A what? A who? hahaha Rapid-response team of female surrogates to fight off Palin. hahaha This is rich!

They know they’re in trouble. WOW my very first thought is here is a man that wants to be President and he is sending our WOMEN to fight his battles for him. LMAO

Yeah, c’mon girlie-boy, show us how you’ll stand up to Iran by taking on the GOP.

I realize they are going up against a woman and that is the reason or part of it, but still. This is just too funny. Actually the contrasts between Sarah and Clinton will be striking. I think it was Rush that said Sarah is what guys want as a wife while Clinton reminds them of their ex wife. I’d say for females, Sarah would be someone they want to be friends with while Clinton is a woman at work they can’t stand. heh heh

So what is Hillary Clinton supposed to say in Florida ?

1.. She’s not as experienced as Obama....
2. She has not given us her full background...
3. She hasn’t released her birth certificate..
4.. She’s married and has 5 children, that’s not very Feminist...
5. Barack and Joe are the right team to lead America even though i was well qualified too...Darn !!

Sen.Obama, Served on Behalf of Philip Berg, Esq. Re: Natural-born Citizen or Not

Lawsuit questions Obama's eligibility for office: citenship claim at issue

Pennsylvania's former deputy attorney general and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton supporter Philip J. Berg has filed a lawsuit in federal court in Pennsylvania accusing presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama of lying about his U.S. citizenship, which would make him ineligible to be president.

Mr. Berg is one of a faction of Clinton supporters who haven't heeded the party's call for unity, filing the suit just days before the opening of the Democratic National Convention, which will nominate Mr. Obama as the party's presidential candidate.

The suit, filed in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia last week, also names the Democratic National Committee and the Federal Election Commission and says Mr. Obama´s mother went to Kenya late in her pregnancy and ended up giving birth there. It also claims that later in life, Mr. Obama declared himself a citizen of Indonesia.

The Obama campaign has firmly said the Illinois Democrat is a natural-born citizen. Last month, the campaign posted on Mr. Obama's Web site a copy of his "certification of live birth." It says he was born in Honolulu on Aug. 4, 1961, two years after Hawaii was named the 50th state.

Mr. Berg said he was contacted about filing the lawsuit by a member or associate of the group PUMA, which was formed to support Mrs. Clinton shortly after she withdrew from the race. Its mission includes denouncing the Democratic Party and Mr. Obama's nomination.

"I really do not believe he is a natural-born citizen," said Mr. Berg, adding that he is not connected with Mrs. Clinton or her campaign.

Wild Thing's comment........

There was a question as to McCain and Obama being citizens. McCain was cleared long ago but not Obama. Puma has been going after this like crazy ever since the votes were stolen from Hillary and it looks like it is starting to be taken seriously. Maybe , maybe not, this legal stuff is always confusing to me.

Nobody threw the suit out about Obama, the judge simply delayed it until Obama could be served. Well, now he is served, and whether it goes anywhere or not, it will shake up the game.

I wonder how the server got through the secret service? Maybe when Obama said he would do the interview with O'Reilly or was that taped and done awhile back , not sure.

Just out of curiousity, if the candidate had to remove himself from the race at this point, how would they choose another candidate?

OK I just checked with some research and found this:

Per the Rules of the DNC:

“Filling a Vacancy on the National Ticket: In the event of death, resignation or disability of a nominee of the Party for President or Vice President after the adjournment of the National Convention, the National Chairperson of the Democratic National Committee shall confer with the Democratic leadership of the United States Congress and the Democratic Governors Association and shall report to the Democratic National Committee, which is authorized to fill the vacancy or vacancies.”

I doubt though this is going anywhere other then to upset Obama and throw him off balance for awhile. My thinking is this particular suit could be thrown out since Berg ‘claims’ the RNC has the source documents proving the claim. Since Berg doesn’t have them he really doesn’t have any hard evidence.

BUT if the ‘claims’ are true and the RNC does have the hard evidence could be a different ballgame later.

Too much drama for me. I like things a lot cleaner. See the enemy, aim and shoot. Feel the recoil and clean the gun. hahaahahhaa Sorry could not resist only kidding , but all this drama is just too much. LOL

I haven't posted on this because it all seems like a soap opera and not real. His mom was a citizen so wouldn't that make him a citizen too. (?)

Also Obama is a guy who wants GIs to read foreign terrorists captured abroad their Miranda Rights. He doesn't want to monitor terrorist communications. He wants to end enhanced scrutiny of visa applicants from Muslim countries. He is a ZERO in the War on Terror. That to me ranks higher on the food chart. Besides I would rather run against Obama then Hillary. I want us to win and I think we can now going up against Obama. Also Hillary has too many dead associations in her life. Yikes ( eyes rolling here) haha

Palin's hometown crowd: "She thumped 'em"

Palin's hometown crowd: "She thumped 'em"


Scott Myers led the cheering section Wednesday as Sarah Palin, the hometown girl, accepted the Republican vice presidential nomination at the GOP convention.

Myers, holding two small American flags, shouted, "Go, Sarah! Yes, Sarah! Go Sarah! Yes, Sarah!" as more than 100 people crowded the Tailgaters sports bar and grill to watch the late afternoon speech.

Myers, 70, said Palin is family, and she takes care of the people of Wasilla like her own.

He said she's hardworking, just like his mother, she's juggling two jobs, and she can take whatever is dished out.

"She's a true blue, dyed-in-the-wool honest person and everyone is scared to death of her," said the resident of nearby Palmer who described himself as a conservative Republican. "Now I've got someone to root for again."

Myers wasn't alone in his unabashed enthusiasm for Palin during her speech.

Minor Smith, 57, a North Slope worker from Wasilla, who was baptized in the same church as Palin and knows her husband, Todd, said he wasn't worried that Sarah Palin would crumble under the pressure. In fact, he said, it's just the type of fight she likes.

"She is perfectly able to defend herself. She's a little tiger," he said of the woman he got to know at church picnics. "She loves this stuff. This is what she lives for."

Palin was born in Idaho, but moved to Wasilla as an infant with her parents, Chuck and Sally Heath.

The giddy crowd flashed their McCain-Palin shirts - what they call "Sarah wear" - and swapped stories about the Palin and Heath families they all had heard a thousand times before.

When Palin took the stage, they leapt to their feet like the hometown team was taking the field for the Super Bowl.

Carol Bearman, 42, said she was visting from the Prince William Sound community of Valdez to go moose hunting. Bearman said Palin was tough, like every Alaska woman.

Bearman noted that many pundits predict that Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden will have no trouble dismantling the green Palin during debates.

"They all say Biden is going to eat her up and spit her out. I think the opposite is going to happen," Bearman said after Palin's speech.

The crowd cheered at just about every sentence during Palin's speech, and frequently jumped to their feet, singing a chorus of "Go girl! and "Yes, Sarah!"

Some of the biggest responses came when Palin introduced her family and when the camera stayed on her parents.

She also drew wild applause when making jabs at presidential candidate Barack Obama and other Democrats and when she defended the people that come from small-town America.

"They love their country in good times and bad," Palin said, prompting Myers to jump to his feet, clapping and yelling, "Yay!" while others cheered wildly.

She also got a loud laugh when making the joke about the only difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull - lipstick.

Smith - who showed up at the bar to watch a Los Angeles Dodgers baseball game - said he wasn't surprised that Palin was the picture of confidence during her first national speech.

"She believes this stuff. It's Sarah being Sarah," he said.

Mike Swanson, 53, and J.P., his 51-year-old wife, both donned "Go Sarah" T-shirts to show their support. J.P. said she remembers teaching 18-year-old Sarah Palin how to do telephone repair work and said she was impressive even then.

However, she said she can't help worrying about her just a little bit, like a mother, she said.

"She'll be all right. We're damn proud of her," she said.

Her husband added it won't be long before the rest of the country gets to know the real Sarah Palin, too.

"I'm sure the rest of the country will be proud of her, too, real quick," he said.

At the end of Palin's speech, the bar crowd jumped to their feet and gave her standing ovation.

"She thumped 'em," Myers said.

Wild Thing's comment...........

What a great write up, so many good things they say about Sarah Palin. I love it. It is wonderful when a good person gets a high five.

It is just so great to be able to post about all these people that love America too , and appreciate Palin and what she has meant and will continue to mean to our country.

Sen. McCain's 2008 Nomination Acceptance Address

Just a few parts of his speech......

"My fellow Americans, when I’m President, we’re going to embark on the most ambitious national project in decades. We are going to stop sending $700 billion a year to countries that don’t like us very much. We will attack the problem on every front. We will produce more energy at home. We will drill new wells offshore, and we’ll drill them now. We will build more nuclear power plants. We will develop clean coal technology. We will increase the use of wind, tide, solar and natural gas."

"I’ve been an imperfect servant of my country for many years. But I have been her servant first, last and always. And I’ve never lived a day, in good times or bad, that I didn’t thank God for the privilege.

Long ago, something unusual happened to me that taught me the most valuable lesson of my life. I was blessed by misfortune. I mean that sincerely. I was blessed because I served in the company of heroes, and I witnessed a thousand acts of courage, compassion and love."

"A lot of prisoners had it worse than I did. I’d been mistreated before, but not as badly as others. I always liked to strut a little after I’d been roughed up to show the other guys I was tough enough to take it. But after I turned down their offer, they worked me over harder than they ever had before. For a long time. And they broke me.

When they brought me back to my cell, I was hurt and ashamed, and I didn’t know how I could face my fellow prisoners. The good man in the cell next door, my friend, Bob Craner, saved me. Through taps on a wall he told me I had fought as hard as I could. No man can always stand alone. And then he told me to get back up and fight again for our country and for the men I had the honor to serve with. Because every day they fought for me."


"I fell in love with my country when I was a prisoner in someone else’s. I loved it not just for the many comforts of life here. I loved it for its decency; for its faith in the wisdom, justice and goodness of its people. I loved it because it was not just a place, but an idea, a cause worth fighting for. I was never the same again. I wasn’t my own man anymore. I was my country’s."

"I’m not running for president because I think I’m blessed with such personal greatness that history has anointed me to save our country in its hour of need. My country saved me. My country saved me, and I cannot forget it. And I will fight for her for as long as I draw breath, so help me God."


Wild Thing's comment.........

The whole speech was very sincere, thoughtful and well-spoken. Not fire and brimstone. It was a humble speech and combined with Sarah Palin’s line in her speech about having a “servant’s heart” shows that this ticket knows who they are without guile or pretension.

He told of his stay in the Hanoi Hilton, and how that experience shaped him. I liked when he told from his heart about how America saved him and how he went from a self, and the all about me looking for excitement kind of guy to a man that wanted to serve the country that saved him........ that touched me and when the camera panned again to the Vets once again I looked into their eyes. As I watched the faces of the Veterans they are most important to me, more then anything, and it was very moving. Tears in their eyes and upon their cheeks, eyes that held untold stories and some shared, but memories and the never to be forgotten depth in them. McCain is a MAN and a hero, he is a man of deep conviction. And a man of passion and will fight back. He will fight back if we are attacked again, being a wimp like Kerry and Obama is foreign to him.

McCain as we know is against waterboarding, but after hearing him speak I understand better why. One time months ago Jack said on here that his being against waterboarding might be due to his being a POW and what he went through. I think he is right and soooooooo I am offering to be in charge of the torture of Islamists and waterboarding. Then McCain won't have to think about it and we can still get information we need. There that is settled then, if he would only take me up on it.

Obama bragged on how he gave up a job on Wall Street, McCain in sharing with us when he was a POW ....and with his voice getting a bit choked up he said, “And they broke me.”

McCain told us who he is and how he thinks about his country...our country and I believe him. He spoke from his heart and his heart loves America.

Some of his politics I don't appreciate, I disagree with and I have posted about it, I can never forgive him regarding the POW MIA Senate Hearings with Kerry and his comment about the Swifties . His stand on amnesty is very upsetting, but I have to be honest, I have posted more then most blogs I have seen about the illegals and how upset about illegals I am and the amnesty. I worked hard both times to get them not to pass the Bush, Kennedy, McCain, amnesty bill under Bush. My thought on this is that before Bush won his first term, when I worked very hard to get him elected, in rallies,etc. ( sidenote: we were not living in Florida back then during his first run for Pres.) I knew very well that Bush favored illegals and amnesty. That was a huge issue with me. It still is today but the reality is that I voted for Bush both times and campaigned for him both times knowing how he felt about illegals.

My point is.... here I am once again hoping a man wins that is for illegals and will surely push his amnesty if elected. I don't know the answer and I am not asking a question. hahaha I just need to say it out loud because I realize we may never have someone to vote for that is against amnesty like we are here at this blog and many other blogs.

One thing for sure after this speech he gave I will not question his love for his country. His thinking on some things, yes, and his past actions yes, but in comparison it's an implicit contrast with Obama, who puts himself first. Who is a totally dangerous man for America not only about illegals but in every way. McCain has proven he has walked the talk on many other things then those things I disagree with.

And who knows with Palin as his VP she may influence him to be more conservative. One can hope anyway and I do so love looking at the glass half full, how can we not! We live in America and we are so blessed to be Americans.

The last five minutes was fantastic. The ending, where he continued to talk while the delegates were cheering ever louder, was inspiring. AWESOME!!!!!

God bless the McCain family and God Bless the Palin family. Both families have sons serving our country.

Sarah Palin Speech Highlights


Wild Thing's comment.........

This is GREAT, they have taken some of the best things she said and put them all on one video. I am so glad they did this.

Posted by Wild Thing at 01:55 PM | Comments (3)

Sarah "Barracuda" Palin , you have rocked our world

One of the many highlights:

"But when the cloud of rhetoric has passed, when the roar of the crowd fades away, when the stadium lights go out, and those Styrofoam Greek columns are hauled back to some studio lot…when that happens, what exactly is our opponent’s plan? What does he actually seek to accomplish, after he’s done turning back the waters and healing the planet? The answer, the answer is to make government bigger, and take more of your money, and give you more orders from Washington, and to reduce the strength of America in a dangerous world."

On her experience as a public servant:

"I had the privilege of living most of my life in a small town. I was just your average hockey mom, and signed up for the PTA because I wanted to make my kids’ public education better. When I ran for city council, I didn’t need focus groups and voter profiles because I knew those voters, and knew their families, too. Before I became governor of the great state of Alaska, I was mayor of my hometown. And since our opponents in this presidential election seem to look down on that experience, let me explain to them what the job involves. I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a ‘community organizer,’ except that you have actual responsibilities."

On why she is going to Washington, D.C.:

"I’m not a member of the permanent political establishment. And I’ve learned quickly, these past few days, that if you’re not a member in good standing of the Washington elite, then some in the media consider a candidate unqualified for that reason alone. But here’s a little news flash for all those reporters and commentators: I’m not going to Washington to seek their good opinion - I’m going to Washington to serve the people of this country."

On energy policies that the McCain-Palin administration will implement:

"Our opponents say, again and again, that drilling will not solve all of America’s energy problems - as if we all didn’t know that already. But the fact that drilling won’t solve every problem is no excuse to do nothing at all. Starting in January, in a McCain-Palin administration, we’re going to lay more more nuclear plants...create jobs with clean coal...and move forward on solar, wind, geothermal, and other alternative sources. We need American energy resources, brought to you by American ingenuity, and produced by American workers."

On John McCain:

"Here’s how I look at the choice Americans face in this election. In politics, there are some candidates who use change to promote their careers. And then there are those, like John McCain, who use their careers to promote change."

Piper, she is so adorable and loaded with personality.


Wild Thing's comment.........

Sarah is a seriously silky smooth stiletto assasin. Obama is bleeding and he doesn’t even know it yet. Warm. Charming. Composed. Witty. Bright. Personable. Real. All of those things, while at the same time landing body blows all over BHO. With a smile on her face she took Obama/Biden to the woodshed again, and again, and again.

Fred Thompson the night before was awesome, and then the others tlast night, Mitt Romney did a great job too and even Huckabee a none favorite of mine had a few swipes at Obama.

I haven't seen anything like this since Reagan.

God once again has smiled down on America and blessed us with Sarah Palin. God is showing us He does does not want a Marxist elected either.

McCain is like a stealthy ninja, he has struck the Obama campaign a deadly blow with his choice of Sarah. The fawning Obama worshiping media looks completely flummoxed and frustrated that she brushed aside their character assassination attempts, and preceded to drop atomic elbows off the top rope on Obama during her speech.

Howard Wolfson commenting on Fox afterwards looked stunned, he had nothing but praise. He said she stuck a knife in Obama and twisted it with a smile on her face. The only thing he could say was he didn’t agree with her policies but that she was going to be real trouble for the dems.

Krauthammer said she didn’t just throw red meat out, she slaughtered a small cow at the podium.

Mort Kondracke: "brilliant"

Bill Kristol: "terrific"

Fred Barnes: "Look out Joe Biden!"

Chris Wallace: "A star was born tonight"

Laura Ingrham said on Fox that she thought it was one the best political speeches she has ever heard.

Obama has just been out phenomed. If she debates half this well, Biden is toast. Wolfson also noted Biden had better bring his A game or he’s lunch.

This was an historic night. I am mega excited about McCain/Palin and can’t wait to see them win the election!!

Howard Wolfson Reacts To Gov. Palin's Speech At RNC

Chris Wallace questioning Howard Wolfson and how Howard Reacts To Gov. Palin's Speech At the Republican National Convention.

Wild Thing's comment........

LOL I am enjoying this. We have waited for this for such a long time if you count the 8 years of the left attacking Bush and calling him a nazi and all the other attacks from the left.

Right about now, Obama and Biden probably feel like the dressed out moose.

Obama the Friend of Ayers and Rezko, to Appear on Egomaniac O'Reilly Factor Tonight

Barack Obama will appear on Fox News with conservative Bill O'Reilly on Thursday, the same night John McCain gives his acceptance speech at the Republican convention here. What a coincidence!

The first-time appearance by the Illinois senator on O'Reilly's show will likely be a ratings draw, although it will not go head-to-head with McCain's speech.

Obama's interview will air at 8:00 p.m. EDT, while McCain's speech will air after 9:00 p.m.

O'Reilly will sit down with Obama Thursday in York, Pa., where he plans to question Obama on his "political career, domestic issues and foreign policy in Iran and Iraq," according to a statement by the network, which is owned by News Corp.,

Wild Thing's comment.......

Light weight O'Reilly has no class nor shame. He brags about being an independent, fine. I could care less. But this interview he has literally been BEGGING for from Obama does not have to be the same night as the closing night of the Republican Convention. And O'Reilly the creep knows it.

More and more lately O'Reilly has been defending Obama, it really is sickening. I am sure it was his way of kissing up to Obama to try and get the interview. But good grief O'Reilly is so obvious about it. LOL

O'Reilly wants the left to like him. ah poor baby....NOT!

Rush ( my favorite) says he prefers when the left doesn't like him, he always says it means he is doing his job. And there are an awful lot of people that don't like Rush and most of them are on the left.

Palin squashed the cockroach and O'Reilly is throwing him a lifeline.

O'Reilly wants to be loved as a star, not respected as a journalist. He has lost a ton of respect from many conservatives with his kissing up to the left like he does in his interviews. The one he did with Michael Moore was totally disgusting.

Give him a mirror and he could preen and talk about looking out for himself....oops the people.... yeah the people.
O'Reilly's interview is about O'Reilly. It is not to get the facts he says he wants for the American people--although this is what he tells himself and believes. However I know he will throw him many softballs and if he doesn't and asks some hard questions he will let him off on his answers. Why? Because O'Reilly is more focused on his resume than realizing he is stepping all over the RNC's final day.

O'Reilly has a badly inflated sense of his interviewing skills. He misses obvious follow-up questions and lets interviewees get away with vague non-answers. Not as bad as Larry King yet, but there's time.

Rush Limbaugh is KING no one comes close, but there are many others that are really good too such as Laura, Mark Levin, and Glenn Beck. All these I named are ten times better then O'Reilly.

Sure I will tape it to watch later after the convention is over tonight, just to see if Obama says something about Palin's speech...... oh wait....that would be.......Uh....Palin....I mean uh.....uh....uh.....uh.....Sarah uh....uh.....ah.....ah.....uh....... her speech.

Why Obama Can't Close the Sale ~ He Wants To TAX you to Death!

Why Obama Can't Close the Sale

The Wall Street Journal


Even before John McCain shook up the presidential race by tapping Gov. Sarah Palin to be his running mate, polls weren't showing the late-August lead that Barack Obama (and many Republicans) expected. Why so?

It's not because of the brilliance of the McCain campaign. Rather we believe that -- despite the media's best efforts to exempt Mr. Obama's policies from critical examination -- American voters aren't sheep. They pay attention to the candidates and positions and make wise decisions about who should lead the country.

True, Mr. Obama enjoys several advantages. Republicans are struggling nationwide in head-to-head contests. Democrats lead in voter registration, and have a well-funded presidential candidate.

Yet Americans have not committed to Mr. Obama. Why?

Clearly, Mr. Obama's weakness on foreign policy is a factor. He has a knee-jerk preference for diplomacy with China, Europe and Russia over the security of the American people and our closest allies. He hasn't explained his shifting positions on Iraq and Iran, among other hot spots. And he felt compelled to make up for his experience gap with Mr. McCain by picking Sen. Joe Biden to be his running mate.

But here's the thing: It's not that Mr. Obama hasn't been specific enough in his governing plans. To the contrary, he has been very specific about his tax policy, health-care and energy proposals. It's that voters are paying attention and appear not to like what Candidate Obama is saying.

Mr. Obama has proposed a massive tax increase on investors, business owners, and the "wealthy." At a time when the American people rate the economy as the central issue of the campaign, a tax hike doesn't make a lot of political sense. Voters know that a tax hike won't help the economy.

Moreover, Mr. Obama's tax plans would directly or indirectly harm U.S. investors by raising the capital gains and dividend taxes. More than half of U.S. households are equity owners, so Mr. Obama's proposal risks alienating half the population.

Mr. Obama claims to offer a tax cut to moderate-income families, but a significant portion of Mr. Obama's tax plan is a welfare giveaway costing more than $648 billion over 10 years, according to the Tax Policy Center.

How so? He would authorize a hodgepodge of refundable tax credits covering everything from education, mortgage payments, child care and other items for people who do not pay income taxes now.

About 38% of U.S. households pay no income tax today. Under a President Obama (whose policies would shave 15.3 million households off the tax rolls) that share would grow to nearly half of all American households.

We have been repeatedly told that everyone should pay their fair share. So this sounds grossly unfair and like a return of tax-and-spend liberal economics. No wonder there is a lot of doubt about the wisdom of the junior senator from Illinois.

Mr. Obama's health-care proposal is not quite HillaryCare, but it comes close. A national health insurance, heavily subsidized by taxpayers, would be offered to the currently uninsured. Mr. Obama's instincts on health care are always to move more people onto rolls of government-paid and government-mandated insurance, while depriving the marketplace the oxygen it needs for greater innovation, life-saving cures, and efficiency.

Americans have heard the refrain for government-provided health care before and know an expensive government giveaway when they see it.

Mr. Obama's energy policy is to drill less, consume less, tax more, and spend more. With barely a nod to nuclear energy -- the only meaningfully large, carbon-free source of domestic energy -- he is promising a massive increase in domestic, noncarbon-based energy from sources that produce only a fraction of our energy now.

He has also proposed massive tax increases on U.S. oil and gas companies while continuing to cut off vast swaths of U.S. territory to drilling.

Again, Americans are wiser than they are given credit. They know that if you restrict supply and tax production, prices go up.

The economic wisdom of Americans should not be doubted. They can see through Mr. Obama's proposals. They know that they will have to pick up the bill if Mr. Obama sends checks to people who already don't pay taxes; they know a centralized government-controlled health-care system will be more expensive, less efficient, and less friendly to patients and doctors. They know that the most effective way to bring down energy prices is by keeping all our energy options open, including more drilling in the U.S.

And they know that if a candidate has spent his entire career taxing more and spending more, that's what you'll get -- and more of it.

Mr. Obama is wondering why he can't shake Mr. McCain. His problem isn't his plans for the campaign. It's his plans for governing the country. Americans just aren't buying into them.

Wild Thing's comment.........

B. Hussein Obama = SOCIALISM

Whenever someone asks an Obama representative to explain ANY of Obama’s policies, they ALWAYS tell the questioner to go to the Obama website for the information. Obama nor his handlers can speak for themselves or explain any policy. It’s all smoke and mirrors.

Taxes on companies are also back door taxes on individuals. McCain should make this very point and challenge Obama to be a man about it and be upfront with the American people!

This will also effect charities too.

The Dems have nominated an amateur, and a not very talented amateur, at that.

Republican Convention 2008 Tuesday Night

Representative Michele Bachmann, has 23 Foster Children. She was one of the speakers.

Missouri delegate puts her hand over her heart on day two of the Republican National Convention (RNC) at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota

They played this music too with photos of our troops. I LOVE "Thunder" it is so perfect for showing our military. The audience LOVED it and every time it came to the part it says THUNDER, the audience would yell it out. OH yesssssssssss !

Boehner has a wonderful speaking vocie.

They had several prayers and even Bible verses were mentioned,. WOW What a difference in the two conventions. It is like one , the Democrats was held in Hell and this one, ours is held in our fantastic America.

After watching the Democrat convention last week, it felt like I was coming home to be able to see the Republican Convention last night ( Tuesday). Like a breath of fresh air.

Not living in la la land yes there were a couple of things I would have changed or left out like the Raza guy that is McCain's friend had to speak. AUGH.

BUT all in all it was a wonderful , feel good evening with a lot of people that truly show they love America and our troops and our Veterans. The audience was packed with Veterans. Once during the night they were told would everyone that has served our country in the military please stand. YEOW! I loved that part, it had to be 75 to 80 percent of the audience.

Jon Voight was in the audience and Gary Sinese narrated the video of Medal of Honor winner NAVY MA2 MICHAEL A. MONSOOR . Video showing the SEAL’s put their tridents on the coffin. Wow! Also showing President Bush crying .

Sister of Michael Monsoor sitting with Cindy McCain. As the crowd was giving them a standing ovation you could just sense that the sister was saying to herself, "I'm gonna be strong, I'm not going to cry".

Then they had the Congressional Medal of Honor recipients stand that were in the audience and more applause. Whew lots of kleenex needed by me.

Thank you God for making America the greatest country in the world

Newt Gingrich Nails It About Palin To MSNBC Jerk

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich stands up for Sarah Palin.

This happened last evening on the convention floor in St. Paul when MSNBC's Ron Allen said to the former Speaker, "But to be fair, her resume is not something we're familiar seeing with presidential candidates."

This didn't sit well with Gingrich who strongly replied :

It's stronger than Barack Obama's. I don't know why you guys walk around saying this baloney. She has a stronger resume than Obama. She's been a real mayor, he hasn't. She has been a real governor, he hasn't. She's been in charge of the Alaskan National Guard, he hasn't. She was a whistleblower who defeated an incumbent mayor. He has never once shown that kind of courage. She's a whistleblower who turned in the chairman of her own party and got him fined $12,000. I've never seen Obama do one thing like that. She took on the incumbent governor of her own party and beat him, and then she beat a former Democratic governor in the general election. I don't know of a single thing Obama's done except talk and write.

Newt then challenged Allen:

I'd like you to tell me one thing Sen. Obama's done.

With that, Allen retreated, and said:

Thanks very much, Mr. Speaker. I'm going to leave it there. I'm not going to argue the case. Thanks very much.

Wild Thing's comment...........

LOL Gingrich took them to pieces, he was awesome! Obama is worthless!!

The best part of the video is watching the “reporter’s” grimace as Newt starts tearing him apart limb by limb. Absolutely smashing!

Nothing Less Then Awesome Speech by Fred Thompson at Convention 2008

Former Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson's speech at the 2008 Republican National Convention.


RAW DATA: Fred Thompson’s Speech at GOP Convention

Fox News


Well, my friends, as — thank you very much. As has been mentioned, our thoughts are still with our friends and fellow citizens in the Gulf Coast. And our special thanks go to those who have worked so hard to keep them safe. There can be no more important work than that. But…


But what we’re doing at this convention is also important to our country, because we’re going to nominate the next president and vice president of the United States of America.


We do so while taking a different view of our country than that of the other party. Listening to them, you’d think that we were in the middle of a great depression, that we’re down, disrespected, incapable of prevailing against challenges that face us.

Now, we know that we have challenges, always have, always will.

But we also know that we live in the freest, strongest, most generous and prosperous nation in the history of the world, and we’re thankful for that.


Now, speaking of the vice-presidential nominee, what a breath of fresh air Governor Sarah Palin is.

Now, she’s from a small town with small-town values, but apparently that’s not good enough for some of the folks who are out there now attacking her and her family. Some Washington pundits and media big-shots are in a frenzy over the selection of a woman who has actually governed rather than just talked a good game on the Sunday talk shows and hit the Washington cocktail circuit.

I say — I say give me a tough Alaskan governor who has taken on the political establishment in the largest state of the union and won over the Beltway business-as-usual crowd any day of the week.

But it’s pretty clear the selection of Governor Palin has got the other side and their friends in the media in a state of panic. And no wonder: She’s a courageous, successful, reformer who’s not afraid to take on the establishment.

Sound like anybody else we know?

She has run a municipality, and she’s run a state. And I think I can say without fear of contradiction she’s the only nominee in the history of either party who knows how to properly field dress a moose…


… with the possible exception of Teddy Roosevelt. OK.
When she and John McCain get to Washington, they’re not going to care how much the alligators get irritated. They’re going to drain that swamp.


But tonight, my friends, I’d like to talk to you about the remarkable story of John McCain. It’s a story about character.
John McCain’s character has been tested like no other presidential candidate in the history of this nation. He comes from a military family whose service goes — to our country goes back to the time of the Revolutionary War. The tradition continues.
As I speak, John and Cindy McCain have one son who’s just finished his first tour in Iraq and another son…


… going back for his second one on Christmas Day, I understand. And another…

And another son who’s putting his country first in attending the Naval Academy.

Now, we have a number of the McCains in the audience tonight. And I just want you to know, I understand they’ve been introduced, but I understand — I want you to understand how proud we are of you and how much we thank you for what you’re doing for your country.


Cindy is here with all the children. All the children are here, I believe.

John is also — also here tonight is John’s 96-year-old mother Roberta.

THOMPSON: All I got to say is if — is if Ms. Roberta had been the McCain captured by the North Vietnamese, they would have surrendered.


Now, John’s father was a bit of a rebel, too. In his first two semesters at the Naval Academy, he managed to earn 333 demerits. Unfortunately, John later saw that as a record to be beaten.


A rebellious mother and a rebellious father, I guess you can see where this is going. In high school and the Naval Academy, John earned the reputation as a troublemaker. But as John points out, he wasn’t just a troublemaker; he was the leader of the troublemakers.


Although — although loaded with demerits like his father, John was principled even in rebellion. He never violated the honor code.
However, in flight school in Pensacola, he did drive a Corvette and date a girl who worked in a bar as an exotic dancer under the name of Marie, the Flame of Florida.
Now, the reason I’m telling you these things — the reason I’m telling you these things are that apparently this mixture of rebellion and honor helped John McCain survive the next chapter in his life.
John McCain was preparing to take off from the USS Forrestal for his sixth mission over Vietnam when a missile from another plane accidentally fired and hit his plane. The flight deck burst into a fireball of jet fuel, and John’s flight suit caught fire. He was hit by shrapnel.
It was a scene of horrible human devastation. Men sacrificed their lives to save others that day. One kid, who John couldn’t identify because he was burned beyond recognition, called out to John to ask if a certain pilot was OK. John replied, “Yes, he was.” The young sailor said, “Thank God,” and then he died.
These are the kind of men John McCain served with. These are the men and women John McCain knows and understands and loves. If you want to know who John McCain is, if you want to know what John McCain values, look at the men and women who wear America’s uniform today.


The fire on the Forrestal burned for two days. Twenty planes were destroyed; 134 sailors died. John himself barely dodged death in the inferno and could have returned to the states with the ship.
Instead, he volunteered for combat on another carrier that was undermanned from having lost so many pilots, stepping up, putting his country first.
Three months later, John McCain was a prisoner of war. On October 26, 1967, on his 23rd mission over North Vietnam, a surface- to-air missile slammed into John’s A-4 Skyhawk jet, blowing it out of the sky.
When John ejected, part of the plane hit him, breaking his right leg, his right knee, his left arm, and right arm in three places. An angry mob got to him when he fell to the ground. A rifle butt broke his shoulder. A bayonet pierced his ankle and his groin.
They took him to the Hanoi Hilton, where he lapsed in and out of consciousness for days. He was offered medical care for his injuries if he would give up military information in return. John McCain said no.
After days of neglect, covered in grime, laying in his own waste in a filthy room, a doctor attempted to set John’s right arm without success and without anesthesia. His other broken bones and injuries were not treated.
John developed a high fever and dysentery. He weighed barely 100 pounds. Expecting him to die, his captors placed him in a cell with two other POWs who also expected him to die. But with their help, John McCain fought on. He persevered.
So then they put him in solitary confinement for over two years, isolation, incredible heat, beating on a tin roof, a light bulb in his cell burning 24 hours a day, boarded up cell windows blocking any breath of fresh air.
The oppressive heat causing boils the size of baseballs under his arms. The outside world limited to what you could see through a crack in the door.
We hear a lot of talk about hope these days. John McCain knows about hope; that’s all he had. For propaganda purposes, his captors offered to let him go home. John McCain refused.
He refused to leave ahead of men who’d been there longer. He refused to abandon his conscience and his honor, even for his freedom. He refused, even though his captors warned him, “It will be very bad for you.” They were right; it was.
The guards cracked ribs, broke teeth off at the gums. They cinched a rope around his arms and painfully drew back his shoulders. Over four days, every two to three hours, the beatings resumed. During one especially fierce beating, he fell, again breaking his arm.
John was beaten for communicating with other prisoners. He was beating — beaten for not communicating with so-called peace delegations. He was beaten for not giving information during interrogations.
When his captors wanted to know the names of the other pilots in the squadron, John gave them the name of the offensive line of the Green Bay Packers.


Whenever John was returned to his cell — walking if he could, dragged if he couldn’t — as he passed his other fellow POWs, he would often call out to them. He’d smile, give them a thumbs-up.
For five-and-a-half years, this went on. John McCain’s bones may have been broken, but his spirit never was.


Now, being a POW doesn’t qualify anyone to be president, but it does reveal character. My friends…


… this is the kind of character that civilizations from the beginning of our history have sought in their leaders.


Strength, courage, humility, wisdom, duty, honor. It’s pretty clear there are two questions that we’ll never have to ask ourselves: Who is this man? And can we trust this man with the presidency?


He’s been to — he’s been to Iraq eight times since 2003. He went seeking truth, not publicity. When he travels abroad, he prefers quietly speaking…


… he prefers quietly speaking to the troops amidst the heat and hardships of their daily lives.
And the same character that marked John McCain’s military career has also marked his political career. This man, John McCain, is not intimidated by what the polls say or by what is politically safe or popular.
At a point in time when the war in Iraq was going badly and the public lost confidence, John stood up and called for more troops. And now we’re winning.



THOMPSON: Ronald Reagan — Ronald Reagan was John McCain’s hero. And President Reagan admired John tremendously.
But when the president proposed putting U.S. troops in Beirut, John McCain, a freshman congressman, stood up and cast a vote against his hero because he thought the deployment was a mistake. My friends, that is character you can believe in.


For years, members of Congress, Republican and Democrat alike, have gouged the taxpayer with secret earmark spending. Well, he has never sought an earmark.
I’ve experienced John’s character…


I’ve experienced John’s character firsthand. In 1993, when I was thinking of running for the Senate, I went to John for advice. He convinced me I could help make a difference for our country. I managed to win that election. And with Republican control of Congress, we reformed welfare, we balanced the budget, and we began rebuilding our military. And what I remember…


And what I remember most about those days is sitting next to John on the Senate floor as he led battle after battle to change the acrimonious, pork-barreling, self-serving ways of Washington.


Now, the United States Senate has always had more than its share of smooth-talkers and big-talkers. And, obviously, it still has.
But while others were talking reform, John McCain led efforts to make reform happen, always pressing, always moving for what he believed was right and necessary to restore the people’s faith in their government. Confronting when necessary, reaching across the aisle when possible, John personified why we all came to Washington in the first place.
It didn’t always set too well with some of his colleagues. Some of those fights were losing efforts; some were not. But a man who never quits is never defeated.


Because John McCain stood up, his country is better off. The respect he’s given around the world is not because of a TelePrompTer speech designed to appeal to America’s critics abroad…


No, it’s not that. It’s not because of that, but because of decades of clearly demonstrated character and statesmanship.
There has never been a time in our nation’s history, since we first pledged allegiance to the American flag, when the character, judgment, and leadership of our president was more important.


Terrorists, rogue nations developing nuclear weapons, an increasingly belligerent Russia, intensifying competition from China, spending at home that threatens to bankrupt future generations, for decades, an expanding government, increasingly wasteful and too often incompetent, to deal with these challenges, the Democrats present a history-making nominee for president, history-making in that he’s the most liberal, most inexperienced nominee to ever run for president.


THOMPSON: Apparently, apparently, they believe that he would match up well with the history-making Democrat-controlled Congress, history-making because it’s the least accomplished and most unpopular Congress in our nation’s history.


Together, they would take on these urgent challenges with protectionism, higher taxes, and an even bigger bureaucracy, and a Supreme Court that would be lost to liberalism for a generation.
This is not reform, and it’s certainly not change. It’s basically the same, old stuff they’ve been peddling for years.


America — America needs a president who understands the nature of the world we live in, a president who feels no need to apologize for the United States of America.


We need a president — we need a president who understands that you don’t make citizens prosperous by making Washington richer, and you don’t…


… and you don’t lift an economic downturn by imposing one of the largest tax increases in American history.


Now, our opponents tell us not to worry about their tax increases. They tell you they’re not going to tax your family. No, they’re just going to tax businesses. So unless you buy something from a business, like groceries or clothes or gasoline, or unless you get a paycheck from a business, a big business or a small business, don’t worry, it’s not going to affect you.


They say they’re not going to take any water out of your side of the bucket, just the other side of the bucket.


That’s their idea of tax reform. My friends, we need a leader who stands on principle. We need a president and vice president who will take the federal bureaucracy by the scruff of the neck and give it a good shaking.


And, my friends, we need a president who doesn’t think that the protection of the unborn or a newly born baby is above his pay grade.


The man who will be that president is John McCain.


In the days ahead — in the days ahead at this convention, you’ll hear a lot more about what John will do as president, what he’ll do with regard to the economy, on energy, on health care and the environment. It’s not my role tonight to explain that vision. It’s my role to hopefully help remind you of the man behind the vision.
Because tonight our country is calling to all of us to step up, and to stand up, and put country first with John McCain.


Tonight we’re being called upon to do what is right for our country, what is right for our country. Tonight we’re being called upon to stand up for a strong military, a mature foreign policy, a free and growing economy, and for the values that bind us together and keep our nation free.
Tonight we’re being called upon to step up and stand up with John, just as he has stood up for our country.


Our country is calling. Our country is calling.
And John McCain can’t raise his arms above his shoulders. He can’t salute the flag of the country for which he’s sacrificed so much.
Tonight, as we begin this convention, we stand with him, and we salute him. We salute his character and his courage, his spirit of independence and his drive for reform, his vision to bring security and peace in our time, and continued prosperity for America and all of our citizens.
For our own good, our children’s, let us celebrate that vision, celebrate that belief, that faith, so we can keep America the greatest country that the world has ever seen.
God bless John McCain, and God bless America.


Wild Thing's comment...........

Nick and I watched the Convention last night on C-Span. I like it better because they don't keep cutting away to the talking heads on the networks. Also you get to see more of the speechs and music and the videos they show on the huge screen.

Fred Thompson was absolutely awesome!!!! He was jaw dropping fantastic!!!

Gov. Sarah Palin On The Issues and Guns

Have Gun Will Travel Paladin

Rush Limbaugh says of Palin choice:

“It’s an inspired choice… this is absolutely fabulous.” “We’re the ones with the babe on the ticket.” “And this is a real Republican woman. This woman hunts moose.” “She is a total maverick. babies, guns, Jesus. Hot damn!"

Sarahh Palin on Gun Control

Hunts and fishes, as did her father. (Aug 2008)
Hunts as much as she can; freezer-full of wild game. (Aug 2008)
Supports ending D.C.'s 32-year-old ban on handguns. (Jun 2008)
Lifelong NRA member & champion of right to bear arms. (Feb 2008)
Supports Constitutional right to bear arms. (Nov 2006)

Her father shot the grizzly bear whose hide is now draped over the sofa in her office.

Supports ending D.C.'s 32-year-old ban on handguns

Governor Sarah Palin today lauded the U.S. Supreme Court's landmark decision upholding the right of Americans to own guns for self-defense, hunting and other purposes. The high court's 5-4 ruling in District of Columbia vs. Heller affirmed gun rights by striking down the District's 32-year-old ban on handguns.

"This decision is a victory for all Alaskans and individual Americans. The right to own guns and use them responsibly is something I and many other Alaskans cherish," Governor Palin said. "I applaud the Court for standing up for the Constitution and the right of Americans to keep and bear arms."

The state of Alaska in February joined a multi-state amicus brief written by the state of Texas in support of the Second Amendment right of individual Americans to bear arms.

Lifelong NRA member & champion of right to bear arms

Governor Sarah Palin announced the State of Alaska will join the multi-state amicus brief authored by the State of Texas in support of the Second Amendment right of individual Americans to bear arms. The Texas amicus brief in the case Washington, D.C. v. Heller will be filed by February 11, 2008.

Governor Palin, a lifelong member of the National Rifle Association, has long been a champion of the constitutional right to bear arms, as well as a proponent of gun safety programs for Alaska's youth.

"I am proud to join the State of Texas in support of the Second Amendment," Governor Palin said. "We need to send a strong message that law-abiding citizens have a right to own firearms, for personal protection, for hunting and for any other lawful purpose."

Biden and Obama the Duo Gaffe Machine~ LOL

Biden: Now is the Moment for me 'as a US Senator Running for President' to Put Aside Politics

ABC News blog

At a Scranton, Penn., Italian festival this afternoon, Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del. standing on the side of a black Suburban, took the microphone to address the downtown crowd and explain why Hurricane Gustav precluded his campaigning today.

"I will be back, I'll be back to campaign in earnest," Biden said, "but today is not the moment for me to campaign. Today is the moment for me as a United States senator running for president to put aside the national politics and focus on what's happening down there" in the Gulf Coast.

Biden has still spent more time this election cycle campaigning for president than he has running for vice president.

McCain Speaks About Gov. Palin in Interview

McCain: Gov. Palin Is A Partner Who Inspires Me

Posted by Wild Thing at 05:48 AM | Comments (2)

American Girl Proud of Her Country ~ Cindy McCain

Cindy Hensley McCain has been disparaged as a trophy wife, a Barbie, an heiress with fancy purses, even the Paris Hilton of politics. But there's more to the picture than meets the eye.

After her Dad died she became involved with his beer distributing firm and Is now the chairwoman. Sales have doubled since she has taken over from her father.

Yes, Mrs. McCain is the perfectly coifed blonde standing dutifully behind the senator during his speeches. And yes, she wears stylish clothing and carries a Prada purse. And it's true she doesn't say much. But feminist critics who write her off as a "stand-by-your-man" shrinking violet are selling her short. In many ways, Cindy McCain stacks up sturdier than Hillary Clinton or Michelle Obama. And she'd make a more impressive first lady.

While Obama's wife has been hating America , complaining about the war and undermining our troops serving in Afghanistan , McCain's wife has been worrying about her sons who actually are fighting or planning to fight in the war on terror. One, in fact, was until a few months ago deployed in Iraq during some of the worst violence. You don't hear the McCain's talk about it, but their 19-year-old Marine, Jimmy, is preparing for his second tour of duty. Their 21-year-old son, Jack, is poised to graduate from Annapolis and also could join the Marines as a second lieutenant. The couple made the decision not to draw attention to their sons out of respect for other families with sons and daughters in harm's way.

Cindy also says she doesn't want to risk falling apart on the campaign trail talking about Jimmy who was so young when he enlisted she had to sign consent forms for his medical tests before he could report for duty and potentially upsetting parents of soldiers who are serving or have been killed.

Meghan and her sister Bridget

During a visit to Mother Teresa's orphanage in Bangladesh, Cindy noticed a dying baby. The orphanage could not provide the medical care needed to save her life. So she brought the child home to America for the surgery she desperately needed. The baby is now their healthy, 16-year-old daughter, Bridget.

Cindy McCain is active with 'Halo Trust' - to clear land mines, provide water and food in war ravaged and developing countries.

Though all seven McCain children including two Sen. McCain adopted from his first marriage are supportive of their father, they prefer their privacy to the glare of the campaign trail. Another daughter, Meghan, 23,helps him behind the scenes.

Cindy McCain not only cherishes her children, but also her country, which in an election year filled with America-bashing, is a refreshing novelty. She seethed when she heard Michelle Obama's unpatriotic remarks that she only recently grew proud of America . "I am very proud of my country," Mrs. McCain asserted.

She also may be tougher than the other women in the race. While Hillary thinks she's come under sniper fire on mission trips abroad, Cindy has actually seen violence. She witnessed a boy get blown up by a mine inKuwait during a trip with an international group that removes land mines from war-torn countries.

Mrs. McCain also is a hands-on philanthropist. She sits on the board of Operation Smile, which arranges for plastic surgeons to fix cleft palates and other birth defects. She also has helped organize relief missions to Micronesia

Cindy McCain and her daughter Meghan McCain (2nd R) tour on June 19, 2008 a local hospital in central coastal Nha Trang city where US Operation Smile's doctors treat local children suffering from facial deformities. Cindy McCain joined Operation Smile's Board of Directors in April 2005.

During a scuba-diving vacation to the islands, Mrs. McCain took a friend to a local hospital to have a cut treated. She was shocked, and saddened, by what she saw. "They opened the door to the OR, where thesupplies were, and there were two cats and a whole bunch of rats climbi ng out of the sterile supplies," she recalled. "They had no X-ray machine, no beds. To m e, it was devastating because it was a U.S. trust territory." As soon as she returned home, she arranged for medical equipment and teams of doctors to be sent to treat the island children.

Michelle Obama may contribute to CARE, which fights global poverty and works to empower poor women. Cindy sits on its board.

While the Democrat women talk about helping the poor and needy, Cindy McCain actually rolls up her sleeves and does it.

Wild Thing's comment.......

What a difference in Cindy McCain and Sarah Palin compared to the unhappy, not proud of America, chip on her shoulder Michelle Obama.

The difference has nothing to do with their upbringing imo, nor finances, it has to do with what they are made of on the inside. There are a lot of people that have had similar upbringing like Michelle and they don't have a chip on their shoulder. I remember once after the Gulf War hearing a SSgt. speak , he was a black man and he gave one of the most powerful positive speeches I have ever heard. He spoke of his upbringing and it was not pretty, it was ruff and hard and he came from a place that did not encourage service to ones country but made it more important to join local gangs instead. He made a difference in this world and Michelle could too but it has to come from within.

Cindy McCain and Sarah Palin, two women that are making a difference each in their own unique way. Not because they want to be important and elitist, and above anyone else or worshiped. No, they are the way they are because they have to do what they do, it is in their DNA and character and a passion in their souls to follow their hearts in things that interest them to do things they feel strongly about. They take risks, doing new things they have not done before, meeting new challenges, getting involved, and they put themselves out there in full.

And yes they make mistakes, no one is perfect. But they learn from their mistakes and even that as Cindy has said about her pain pill addiction. She wants others to know about it might help them in some way.

They are moms and worry like other military mothers about their sons and daughters. Taking pride in their child serving our country but also having that part of them far away and in danger, the silent prayer for his/ her safety like other moms feel.

I am so proud of both Cindy and Sarah, they truly are American girls that love our country. God bless them both and their families.

Have A Great Labor Day Everyone! Life Is Good, God Bless America!

A lot is happening today. It is Labor Day, the Republican Convention begins today and Gustav is coming to our shores.

Thank God for this wonderful country we live in, and for our troops and Veterans that have made it possible for all of us.

Prayers for those in Gustav's path and keep them safe and their homes safe too for their return when the storm is over.

And prayers for Sarah Palin and John McCain and their families and keep them safe.

Have a great day everyone, we have a chance to win this election and the dark side, the enemy within can't stand the happiness of the conservatives and the cheers from the growing crowds that have been happening since last Friday with the announcement of Palin for VP.

Republican Convention

As of writing this post I am not sure the final decision of what the plans are. As you know I posted the schedule last week but things have changed due to Gustav. -- Wild Thing

This is the latest as of 6:20 this morning.

Delegates Supportive of GOP Convention Changes

Fox News

As delegates descended upon Minneapolis amid reports that the GOP convention would be altered in response to potentially catastrophic Hurricane Gustav, few, if any, voiced opposition to the changes.

Organizers of the Republican National Convention canceled all speeches and program activities for Monday beyond the official procedures that are required under party rules.

“It’s definitely appropriate,” Mississippi delegate Michael Cravens told “We know that while the convention is extremely important to our nation, there is nothing more important than the safety of the people affected by the hurricane.”
“When there’s a conflict between governance and politics, you have to choose governance. Neither Bush nor Cheney is on the ballot this year so I think it’s perfectly appropriate for them to be where they need to be, which is with the folks in the affected areas,” said Trey Grayson, a delegate and secretary of state from Kentucky, who agreed with President Bush’s decision to skip out on the convention and instead spend opening night Monday with evacuees and emergency responders in Texas.
"What most people don’t realize is that legally we have to have a convention. We have to nominate John McCain and Sarah Palin otherwise there’s no election in the fall,” Greyson said.

McCain / Palin Rally in Missouri Gets Enthusiastic Reception

KMOV reported on the Missouri rally: McCain spotlighted Palin at the suburban St. Louis rally -- giving her the clean-up speaking spot on a stage erected over the ballfield's home plate.

She got an enthusiastic reception from the crowd that filled the infield bleachers and spread from the dirt base paths into the outfield grass. At various times, they chanted, "Sarah, Sarah."

The ball team's president said the stadium holds about 15,000 for such concert-style events. Republican consultant John Hancock, who served as master of ceremonies for the event, estimated there were about 20,000 people

Wild Thing's comment............

They didn’t even have to throw a free concert to get people there like they do at a lot of Obama's speech's. The size of McCain's crowds have increased now since Palin is on board.

The Hostess With The Moosest by Mark Steyn

The hostess with the moosest


Over in the Frumistan province of the NR caliphate, our pal David is not happy about the Palin pick. I am - for several reasons.

First, Governor Palin is not merely, as Jay describes her, "all-American", but hyper-American. What other country in the developed world produces beauty queens who hunt caribou and serve up a terrific moose stew? As an immigrant, I'm not saying I came to the United States purely to meet chicks like that, but it was certainly high on my list of priorities. And for the gun-totin' Miss Wasilla then to go on to become Governor while having five kids makes it an even more uniquely American story. Next to her resume, a guy who's done nothing but serve in the phony-baloney job of "community organizer" and write multiple autobiographies looks like just another creepily self-absorbed lifelong member of the full-time political class that infests every advanced democracy.

Second, it can't be in Senator Obama's interest for the punditocracy to spends its time arguing about whether the Republicans' vice-presidential pick is "even more" inexperienced than the Democrats' presidential one.

Third, real people don't define "experience" as appearing on unwatched Sunday-morning talk shows every week for 35 years and having been around long enough to have got both the War on Terror and the Cold War wrong. (On the first point, at the Gun Owners of New Hampshire dinner in the 2000 campaign, I remember Orrin Hatch telling me sadly that he was stunned to discover how few Granite State voters knew who he was.) Sarah Palin and Barack Obama are more or less the same age, but Governor Palin has run a state and a town and a commercial fishing operation, whereas (to reprise a famous line on the Rev Jackson) Senator Obama ain't run nothin' but his mouth. She's done the stuff he's merely a poseur about. Post-partisan? She took on her own party's corrupt political culture directly while Obama was sucking up to Wright and Ayers and being just another get-along Chicago machine pol (see his campaign's thuggish attempt to throttle Stanley Kurtz and Milt Rosenberg on WGN the other night).

Fourth, Governor Palin has what the British Labour Party politician Denis Healy likes to call a "hinterland" - a life beyond politics. Whenever Senator Obama attempts anything non-political (such as bowling), he comes over like a visiting dignitary to a foreign country getting shanghaied into some impenetrable local folk ritual. Sarah Palin isn't just on the right side of the issues intellectually. She won't need the usual stage-managed "hunting" trip to reassure gun owners: she's lived the Second Amendment all her life. Likewise, on abortion, we're often told it's easy to be against it in principle but what if you were a woman facing a difficult birth or a handicapped child? Been there, done that.

Fifth, she complicates all the laziest Democrat pieties. Energy? Unlike Biden and Obama, she's been to ANWR and, like most Alaskans, supports drilling there.

Sixth (see Kathleen's link to Craig Ferguson below), I kinda like the whole naughty librarian vibe.

I am looking forward to seeing her in the debates. She is a nautral and will do well . She discusses ANWAR, drilling and other thing's........excellent.

One of the things I love and it is a very noticeable and important characteristic that gov. palin has in common with President Reagan is her incredible optimism and faith

She doesn't dance the questions, she actually fully and clearly said what she believes and would support without rambling on and on with a non answer like Obama is famous for and no UH's and stammering. It is so refreshing.

Captain Ed "Too Tall" Freeman Tribute

Congressional Medal of Honor recipient Ed Freeman of Boise died, he was 80 years of age.

Freeman, who was born in November of 1927 in Mississippi, received the Medal of Honor for heroic actions he took as an Army helicopter pilot on Nov. 14, 1965, in Vietnam.

As a flight leader and second in command of a 16-helicopter lift unit, he supported a heavily engaged infantry battalion at Landing Zone X-Ray in the la Drang Valley. He flew 14 separate rescue missions, providing life-saving evacuation of an estimated 30 seriously wounded soldiers.

Freeman has lived in Idaho for the past 30 years.

Citation: Captain Ed W. Freeman, United States Army, distinguished himself by numerous acts of conspicuous gallantry and extraordinary intrepidity on 14 November 1965 while serving with Company A, 229th Assault Helicopter Battalion, 1st Cavalry Division (Airmobile).

As a flight leader and second in command of a 16-helicopter lift unit, he supported a heavily engaged American infantry battalion at Landing Zone X-Ray in the Ia Drang Valley, Republic of Vietnam.

The infantry unit was almost out of ammunition after taking some of the heaviest casualties of the war, fighting off a relentless attack from a highly motivated, heavily armed enemy force. When the infantry commander closed the helicopter landing zone due to intense direct enemy fire, Captain Freeman risked his own life by flying his unarmed helicopter through a gauntlet of enemy fire time after time, delivering critically needed ammunition, water, and medical supplies to the besieged battalion.

His flights had a direct impact on the battle's outcome by providing the engaged units with timely supplies of ammunition critical to their survival, without which they would almost surely have experienced a much greater loss of life. After medical evacuation helicopters refused to fly into the area due to intense enemy fire, Captain Freeman flew 14 separate rescue missions, providing life-saving evacuation of an estimated 30 seriously wounded soldiers -- some of whom would not have survived had he not acted.

All flights were made into a small emergency landing zone within 100 to 200 meters of the defensive perimeter where heavily committed units were perilously holding off the attacking elements.

Captain Freeman’s selfless acts of great valor, extraordinary perseverance, and intrepidity were far above and beyond the call of duty or mission and set a superb example of leadership and courage for all of his peers.

Captain Freeman’s extraordinary heroism and devotion to duty are in keeping with the highest traditions of military service and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit, and the United States Army.


"We Were Soldiers"

In the movie We Were Soldiers Ed "Too Tall" Freeman was played by Mark McCracken.

Moore: You're a pilot?

Freeman: Yes, sir. "Too Tall".

Moore: I can see that.

Freeman: You call, we haul.

And this from the book, " We Were Soldier's"

From the book "We Were Soldiers Once ... And Young" ... p 108

"Captain Ed Freeman, thirty-six, fought on Pork Chop Hill in Korea as an enlisted man and won a battlefield commission there. At six feet six inches, Freeman was four inches taller than the maximum height limit for Army pilots at the time he went to flight school, hence his nickname: 'Too Tall to Fly.' Crandall and Freeman had been a close team for years, sharing flying duties over some of the world's toughest terrain. Together they had flown the Arctic, the deserts of the Middle East and North Africa, and the jungles of Central and South America on mapping missions for the Army. The only thing the two of them were ever known to argue about was which of them was the second-best helicopter pilot in the world. Pop Jekel describes the Too Tall Ed of that era as 'a good old shit-kicker whose poker winnings could pay off half the national debt.'"
...p 109
"We started receiving heavy fire on our approach [into the emergency LZ]. I [Crandall] notified Big Ed and he calmly came back with: 'Roger. What do you want me to do about it, Snake? I kind of thought this might happen.'"

"To~Tallʼs internment Saturday, who ever put it together did a fine job. There were around 200 give or take a few. All the services were represented in the honor guard. The Air Guard did the missing man Fly over with four Apache Gunships. General Hal Moore was there also. The Press Tribune had a story about some of the visitors who came to See To-Tall in the Hospital, quite a few were men he rescued form the Battle in the Ia-Drang!! Agood send off for a good man!!! "
