New Anti-Terrorism Caucus Formed in U.S. House

A good idea, in theory. But where are you going to find a democrat with a backbone?

Today at a press conference in the U.S. Capitol, U.S. Representative Sue Myrick (R-NC), along with Representatives Bud Cramer (D-AL), Kay Granger (R-TX), and Ben Chandler (D-KY) formally announced they have formed a new bipartisan Congressional Anti-Terrorism Caucus. Myrick, Cramer, Granger, and Chandler are the co-chairs of the new caucus.

The Caucus mission statement states that it “serves to educate Members of Congress, their staff and the general public about the threats to our country that are fueled by extremist ideologies. The Caucus recognizes that terrorism is not a Democrat or Republican problem; it is a critical issue for all Americans. To this end, the Caucus will facilitate an educational process and healthy exchange of ideas in a bipartisan setting.”

Focus on the threat from “extremist ideologies” is much-needed and long-overdue. The new Caucus will meet in the coming months to hear from leading experts on issues such as terrorist financing and their use of the internet.

  1. You mean a Democrat that issues an opinion before he/she consults the polls? Inconceivable!

  2. Yeah, good idea. As for the Dhimmis, we could always shove a 4130 chromoly tube up their exhaust to stiffen them up. I’m more concerned with the orientation of their brain.

  3. Hey Swampie, where is Marianna, Fl.(sp?)?
    Anywhere near you?
    That was a rough night they had.

  4. A psychoanalyst’s perspective on Her Royal Thighness.
    Hillary Typical of Abused Women – Not Fit to Lead.

    And this is what she will do as commander in chief. She will take her limited repertoire of emotional responses and her craving for approval to the world stage, where she will chat with Ahmadinejad and chat with the Joint Chiefs. And when they ignore her, or give her their word and then cheat on her behind her back, or embarrass or hurt or demean or enrage or confront her, she will do what she is still doing with Bill – nothing.

    /that’s gotta hurt

  5. Nuke asked the question a few weeks ago, ‘can we question their patriotism now?’
    There’s no need, with the WAPO article yesterday(linked in the below piece) showing us what they really think of our military. And now this shiite from the leading toilet paper dispenser in the world, the NYSlimes.
    Outrage! New York Times Posts Video and Pictures of Dying US Soldier!!
    Yep, without reading it, that caption tells you what they did. Read the article to find out the sickening details of their actions to demoralize our nation, and give aid to the enemy.
    Sickening, that our troops protect these cretins and their 1st amendment rights.

  6. Nope, it’s on the opposite side o’ Florida from me. That was a terrible thing.

  7. There you go, N2L. My feelings always have been that if she is not strong enough to kick Bill to the curb and strike out on her own with all the resources she possesses, then she is not strong enough to be President.

  8. See, we have been saying the same thing all along, the only difference is this is what I thought, and this is what you feel.

  9. Feeeeeeelings, whoa whoa whoa feeeeeeeelings….

  10. We missed you last night Swampie, it became a one man chat fest.
    Sorry, I can’t stay now. Just here feeding ma’boy and checking emails.

  11. Yep, I’m finishing up one shift here, and will be working hard (not hardly working) tonight.

  12. The job search thing so I can have a semi-normal schedule is on hold until the knee is repaired/healed.

  13. Hang tough, gal!
    In the meantime, have you heard about the Silky Pony’s new house?
    More on the Edwards House!

  14. I saw Silky Pony’s new house photo last week. I think he clear cut about 30 acres of forest for a 28,000 sq. ft. mansion.

    Talk about a hypocrite, check out my obit to Molly Ivins today on I will hit 40,000 views today. I’m catching up with Nuke.

  15. Yeah, I was vastly amused at Edwards shedding large tears at the plight of the poor. I was shocked, SHOCKED that he would earn so much money out of the misfortunes of his poor clients that he would be building such a monstrosity of a house, but perhaps he intends to do something about the poor in that county by hiring them all to be house maids and gardeners.

  16. SwampWoman, aren’t you a little scared about how dumb America is to even get candidates like Edwards? Another reason I will never step foot in North Carolina again.

  17. Yes I am, Mick, and I’m surprised that people will put up with the patronization bullshit.

  18. Mick, uh, I’m even more concerned about the voters and the peoples’ representatives from California (shudder) and Massachusetts (running screaming for the door).

  19. I’ll let N2L comment on the candidate from New York via Arkansas.

  20. hellor to you too Hillari.

  21. I enjoyed your page. Keep up the good work! Feel free to visit my page. It\’s cool too.%
