Hillary Clinton backs NY Driver’s License for illegal aliens

After getting caught in a moment of doublespeak in last night’s Democrat debate, HRC today made a political calculation to fully endorse New York’s controversial proposal to issue Driver’s Licenses to illegal immigrants, handing the GOP a front-burner general election issue.

“Senator Clinton supports governors like Governor Spitzer who believe they need such a measure to deal with the crisis caused by this administration’s failure to pass comprehensive immigration reform,’” her campaign said.

Mrs. Clinton’s aides said her statement was intended to signal that she broadly supported Mr. Spitzer’s goal of awarding driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants. source

The issue of border security has galvanized conservatives, and is a hot-button issue in the Republican campaign. Just ask John McCain. For HRC to attach herself to amnesty for illegal immigrants, an issue that is favored by just 22% of voters, seems to me to be political suicide. Perhaps she figures she would rather take away the “double-speak” accusations from her Primary opponents, calculating that she can move back to the center in time for November 2008. If so, it is a risky strategy, and one that may prove to be more costly than she reckons.

Henh…in order for her to make risky moves, the LSM has to hold her feet to the fire, and we all know that ain’t gonna happen.
The one thing she can’t control or spin, like she has been able to do so far, is if she becomes the donks choice, she will have to do more serious in-depth interviews, and debate the GOP candidate several times, publicly and nationally. That’s what I’m waiting for, that’s when it gets really interesting for me.
She’s not gonna make the donks happy when that happens.

First we freely allow them to jump the border with no recourse and what does it lead to. None. What laws are typically broken.

1. Well, border jumping
2. Social Security Fraud
3. Theft of services such as medical and education.
4. Failure to register with the Selective Service. Yes, even illegal aliens are required to register.
5. Tax evasion
6. Driving without insurance. In most states it is required and is against the law to do so.

Not to mention “in state” tuition breaks even though they are here illegally.

Sure, give them a fricken license. Maybe Hill wants them to be able to drive to the voting both legally. Well, without insurance that is.

Rosenbaum’s Revelations: LAT sitting on DC sex scandal story?

You’ve just gotta read this….

So I was down in DC this past weekend and happened to run into a well-connected media person, who told me flatly, unequivocally that “everyone knows” The LA Times was sitting on a story, all wrapped up and ready to go about what is a potentially devastating sexual scandal involving a leading Presidential candidate. “Everyone knows” meaning everyone in the DC mainstream media political reporting world. “Sitting on it” because the paper couldn’t decide the complex ethics of whether and when to run it. The way I heard it they’d had it for a while but don’t know what to do. The person who told me )not an LAT person) knows I write and didn’t say “don’t write about this”.

If it’s true, I don’t envy the LAT. I respect their hesitation, their dilemma, deciding to run or not to run it raises a lot of difficult journalism ethics questions and they’re likely to be attacked, when it comes out—the story or their suppression of the story—whatever they do.


I asked Rosenbaum the following question
: You said, “The person who told me (not an LAT person) knows I write and didn’t say “don’t write about this”.”
Do you suppose that your acquaintance assumed you would write about it, or that you wouldn’t?
his response:
It’s a valid question and I can’t be certain, but I didn’t get the feeling there was calculation behind it; it came up casually in the course of a meandering discussion with two others present, not as if it was designed to achieve an objective.

So, RR doesn’t believe he was being set up to be the one who would break the story and give the pack an excuse to jump in….

Blogger Vince Foster has an interesting SWAG theory…

I’ve been getting a few emails from people who say they work in Washington and everyone “knows” about this relationship. Once again – this is just throwing this out there. It is about Hillary’s relationship with her “right hand woman” Huma.
Who is Huma? Read about her here:
For instance, I got an email from an government email address recently “usdoj.gov” who wrote:
I am close enough to both Hillary and Huma to know that it is an open secret on the campaign that those two are romantically involved. It is something you will never get them to verify though…

So… I’m just going to throw this out there as a wild hunch of why the LATimes is sitting on this story.

I do get a lot of viewers looking at that page on my website. Are they looking at that page because they are hearing about the rumor?

Makes as much sense as any of the other theories out there.

Stupid Congress Tricks

Not long ago, we blogged about the Chairman of the House Judiciary Commitee, John Conyers, and his decision to politicize the committee by deciding to ask for confidential whistleblowers to come forward if they had information regarding the Justice Department since 2001.

So what happened? TPM has the story…

…in an email sent out today, the committee inadvertently sent the email addresses of all the would-be whistleblowers to everyone who had written in to the tipline. The committee email was sent to tipsters who had used the website form, including presumably whistleblowers themselves, and all of the recipients of the email were accidentally included in the “to:” field — instead of concealing those addresses with a so-called blind carbon copy or “bcc:”. […]

Compounding the mistake, the committee later sent out a second email attempting to recall the original email; it, too, included all recipients in the “to:” field, according to a recipient of the emails.

Attaboy, John. You’re a Real Man of Genius……

It’s a catchy tune, and you can dance to it! Doug Ross takes off, check it out.

Red Sox Nation Celebrates

From AP

Sunglasses shielding his sleepless eyes, David Ortiz held the glittering World Series trophy aloft for Red Sox fans gathered outside Fenway Park.

“Man, we got it man,” Big Papi told reporters, his hands still on baseball’s ultimate prize.

“There was a lot of celebration,” Ortiz said. “I got to go. I am tired.”

The city is planning a rolling rally Tuesday from Fenway to City Hall Plaza. The parade will pause in three spots – Copley Square, the Boston Common and City Hall Plaza – so closer Jonathan Papelbon can dance his wacky Irish jig.

Here is exclusive video of Papelbon leading the team in the dance routine.

NY Sun: Rising in Polls, Huckabee Could Be GOP’s Dark Horse of 2008

“This is a guy who brought the house down at the Values Voter Summit, wins or comes close to winning every debate, shocked everyone by placing second in the Ames, Iowa, straw poll, and is now inching toward the top of the polls in the Iowa caucuses,” Charlie Gerow, a Republican strategist in Harrisburg, told the Pittsburgh Tribune Review.

Byron York in NRO: Huckabee: What’s true and what’s not

With his recent rise in the polls and improved fundraising, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee has become the talk of the Republican presidential race. With that new prominence comes new criticism, and Huckabee has taken a lot of it in the past week, mostly for his record on taxes, but also for his handling of a notorious case in which he pardoned a convicted rapist who then went on to commit murder.

Huckabee is getting his defense together. But in August, just before his strong showing in the Ames, Iowa straw poll, he sat down with Byron York for an extended conversation in which he gave his side of the story on the big issues. The article appeared on the cover of the September 10 issue of National Review, available for free to non-subscribers for the first time today.

Newt.Org: Leading the Majority

Last week on Leading the Majority, Rick and Vince hosted former Governor of AR and 2008 Presidential Candidate, Mike Huckabee to discuss his stance on the 5 great challenges facing America.

USA Today: Huckabee could have ’spirit of Reagan’

“At a time when GOP candidates are falling all over themselves to rekindle the spirit of Ronald Reagan in their party,” our Gannett colleague David Yepsen of the Des Moines Register writes in his column today, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee is “coming as close as anyone.”

The Nation: Thompson Tanks in Iowa.

Mike Huckabee, not Fred Thompson, is the Republican to watch in Iowa. A new poll released by the University of Iowa shows Huckabee jumping from 1.8 percent in August to 12.8 percent in October, putting him just behind Rudy Giuliani (13.2%) and ahead of Thompson (11.4 %).

Human Events polls conservatives

Human Events’ presidential preference poll of American conservatives found that former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson leads the competition for conservative support with 23% of the participants selecting him over the other candidates. Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee tied for second with 19%, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney came in third at 13% and Arizona Sen. John McCain — in what is probably a direct result of his stance on amnesty for illegal aliens — came in dead last at 2.1%

Got other headlines or articles of interest? Bring ‘em on!

Also: the campaign reports that it is within $80,000 of reaching the very ambitious fundraising goal for October. Please consider helping if you can…. $20.08 for 2008!

The right way for politicians to approach these issues is by putting the individual’s wallet ahead of Washington’s, an approach that puts property rights and incentives for hard work and growth ahead of government revenues. Understanding incentives has always been a key to the supply-side argument. It’s good politics and good economics. While the Party’s deep thinkers of today may dismiss it as hoodwinking, hijacking, crackpottery, or evil spirits, there was a time the Democrats were on the right side of the issue. Ask JFK. Our own prediction is that to the extent the tax issue drives the debate in 2008 — and we think it will be a big factor, though not the only one — the key point won’t be which candidate wins the votes of the economics faculties, but which one can show voters he or she understands it’s their money, and Washington should take as little as it possibly can.
That’s a mouth-full…and he’s right.

Nice piece on Mike Huckabee.

Hillary! Uncensored. It’s in the Times, so I guess it’s a story now….

This is a Special Truth-boating Post for all those who believe a “story” isn’t news unless it’s published in the New York Times, the following is an AP story from the Business and Financial section…..LINK
and Screenshot (in case they change their minds and take it down). hat-tip n2l

First came the Orwellian mash up YouTube video that portrayed Hillary Rodham Clinton as Big Brother. Then came a clip of her off-key rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Now, a stinging 13-minute video by a bitter Clinton foe is finding its own Internet audience.

The clip, a preview of a longer film by one-time Clinton donor Peter Paul, has scored more than 1.4 million hits on Google Video and about 350,000 on YouTube during the past week. Its popularity has driven it to the top spot on Google Video over the past two weeks.

Paul is a Hollywood entrepreneur, former partner of Spider-Man creator Stan Lee and convicted felon who has sued the Clintons in connection with a celebrity-packed fundraiser he helped organize for her 2000 Senate race. A California appeals court earlier this month ruled that Sen. Clinton should be dismissed from the suit.

But Paul has devoted a Web site to the case and his film, “Hillary Uncensored,” in recent days has been touring New England College campuses. On Tuesday, the film is scheduled to be screened at the Metropolitan Club in New York City.

The Clintons have long argued that Paul’s criminal record discredits him and in court pleadings have denied Paul’s claims against them.

“Peter Paul is a professional liar who has four separate criminal convictions, two for fraud. His video repackages a series of seven-year-old false claims about Senator Clinton that have already been rejected by the California state courts, the Justice Department, the Federal Election Commission, and the Senate Ethics Committee,” the Clinton campaign said in a statement.

Paul’s anti-Clinton effort is getting help from two technical producers who set up the Web site for Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, the 2004 campaign that went after Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry by raising questions about his decorated military service in Vietnam.

Robert Hahn and Scott Swett operate http://www.HillCAP.org, the Web site that Paul set up in 2005 to showcase court documents, videos and news articles related to his lawsuit. The video trailer “Hillary Uncensored,” and the schedule for the movie are prominently displayed on the site.

Among those featured in the video speaking in support of Paul is David Schippers, who served as chief investigative counsel for the House Judiciary Committee during President Clinton’s 1998 impeachment hearings.

In his lawsuit and in the film, Paul says he spent $1.9 million for the August 2000 Hollywood fundraiser that featured such stars as Brad Pitt, Diana Ross and Cher. Paul maintains he organized the event because President Clinton falsely agreed to assist him in a new venture with Stan Lee after leaving the presidency in January 2001.

Campaign reports filed with the Federal Election Commission estimated the cost of the event at about $500,000. An ensuing criminal trial of Clinton’s former national finance director, David Rosen, on charges that he lied to the FEC about the fundraiser resulted in an acquittal. At the time, Rosen’s lawyer said Paul concealed the actual cost of the event from Rosen, a claim Paul denies.

The film also includes a tape recording recently obtained by Paul of Sen. Clinton thanking him in advance for staging the event, which he says is proof that she illegally coordinated the fundraiser with him. The appellate court ruling that dismissed her from the case concluded the call did not amount to new evidence.

The complexities of the case are all fodder for the video clip and the movie, spiced with clips of Hollywood performers.

“Her abuse of her power as reflected in my case should make everybody pause about entrusting her with the reins of government,” Paul said in an interview.

Paul is awaiting sentencing on his 2005 guilty plea to charges of stock fraud involving Stan Lee Media, the company Paul had wanted Clinton to join. In the 1970s, he was convicted of cocaine possession and of attempting to defraud the Cuban government of Fidel Castro.

Swett, who is running Paul’s HillCAP Web site, said the video has helped drive more traffic to the Web site, but that the activity is far less frequent than it was on the site he operated for Swift Boat Veterans in 2004.

“Then it was in the final months before the election and we’re a year out at this point,” he said. “There’s a lot of complexity to the Peter Paul lawsuit. You have to read through some of the documents to get a handle on it. That was less the case with the charges that the Swift Boat Veterans and POWs were making against John Kerry.”

Well, hey….the lefties call it the “paper of record” or some such self-congratulatory term, so I guess there is no turning back from the info now.
Will there be cameras in the courtroom, when she and her hubbie, the Horny Hick, are sworn in as defendants and material witness?
/i think there will

Huckattack from the Left

US News and World Report was a favorite read of mine going back almost 40 years. I first discovered USNWR when going through the Readers Guide to Periodical Literature while doing some research for a current events paper while in Jr High. I loved it. And, when I could afford it, I became a subscriber. It was probably the last news magazine subscription that I let expire a few years back. I just never read it any more. By the time it came in, the stories were cold, and the opinions, sadly, predictable.

I still read occasional posts that show up on some of the internet forums that I frequent, like this one from Bonnie Erbe which takes aim at fast-rising Mike Huckabee.

Erbe recycles a couple of stories that have made the rounds over the past few months, and breathlessly asks…

Destroying records? Misusing mansion funds? Helping a convicted rapist? Would Clinton still be a viable candidate if she faced such stories? Would Rudy Giuliani? Methinks not.

Oh, please.

Erbe, who claims to have covered Washington politics since God was a baby should be aware of at least some of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s numerous “stories.” There are so many. Story after story during the Clinton Administration, as well as the “Greatest Campaign Finance Scandal in American History” from HRC’s first run for the Senate. Maybe Erbe was out of pocket when Norman Hsu’s dirty money somehow made its way to HRC’s campaign war chest. Perhaps the Chinese dishwasher money or the Milberg Weiss money that also made its way to Hillary’s campaign is just the product of Republican lies, like Ms Erbe told Linda Chavez,

“I expect insecure people and especially conservatives to lie and play games.”

I expect very little from PBSers and progressive journalists like Ms Erbe, and they seldom fail to meet my expectations. Why is it that people like Erbe seem to fit the stereotype of the burned out hippie who substitutes nasty cynicism for journalistic judgement? This quote taken from her Scripps-Howard column as it appeared in the Denver Rocky Mountain News:

“I have a confession to make: More than 25 years ago I used an illegal narcotic. I’m not running for President, nor any political office for that matter. And the statute of limitations has surely run out on my transgression. So it’s safe to come clean. I won’t make you guess about which drug it was. It was heroin. And here come the gory details. I snorted it — no, I didn’t inject it. I was caught up in the drug culture of the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, which I state as a reason, not an excuse. And, oh yes, prior to trying heroin I smoked a lot of different types of marijuana and hashish (yes, inhaling all the time) and took a wide variety of hallucinogens: mescaline, LSD, you name it. Well, I not only survived that stupor, I excelled at high school studies and extracurricular activities during it.”

I do hope the Clinton campaign is “salivating”, as Ms Erbe suggests, at the prospect of facing Huckabee in the general election. It will be more than interesting. And, as I mentioned in yesterday’s column, it will be vicious…

Long stymied by their self-imposed quagmire of Dixiephobia, the over-the-top rhetoric from the Left, and wildly exaggerated claims of “theocracy” serve only to unite Southern Christians. Left-wing interest groups frame their criticism around their pet issues, but these early attacks signal a growing fear of the potential generational loss of Judiciary favor. Their fear will serve to drive a form of rhetorical arson in the general election that will make the current anti-war silliness look tame by comparison.

Hillary’s dirty money: Part 3,209,830

This article is a week or so old. I can’t recall if it was before the Chinese dishwashers started making maximum contributions to Hillary, or after.

All the dirty money scandals with the Clintons start to blend together after a while, till it just seems like one giant stinkhole.

This is from the Miami Herald

Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign is raking in so much dough that it’s hard for her staff to keep tabs on all the donors. Consequently, some embarrassing checks have been cashed.

A bunch of them came courtesy of Norman Hsu, the natty schmoozer of high-level Democrats who was recently busted on fraud charges. Hsu raised about $800,000 for Mrs. Clinton, who has said she’ll give back that money to the individual donors.

Now comes the revelation that Mrs. Clinton and several other Democrats, including presidential candidates John Edwards and Joe Biden, accepted contributions from trial lawyers implicated in a sleazy kickback scheme.

The facts, as reported in The New York Times, make it difficult to believe that taking money from these characters was an innocent oversight. The scandal was already in full bloom, and well publicized, when the candidates banked the donations.

At the center of the case is the New York law firm of Milberg Weiss, which made billions in legal fees by initiating class-action suits against large, publicly traded corporations.

The firm’s approach was aggressive and effective. When a company’s stock dropped significantly, Milberg Weiss would quickly sue, having recruited a shareholder as a plaintiff.

Typically, the lawsuit accused executives of misleading or defrauding investors. More often than not, the company would settle the case for big bucks in order to avoid a trial.

Milberg Weiss soon became the leading class-action firm in the country, though its activities drew the scrutiny of federal investigators. In May 2006, the firm was indicted for fraud and bribery.

Prosecutors called it a ”racketeering enterprise,” and alleged that Milberg Weiss paid people kickbacks to act as plaintiffs in 250 cases. The law firm has denied all charges, but at least three former partners have pleaded guilty to conspiracy.

One of the lavishly bribed was Howard J. Vogel, 61, of Aventura. Prosecutors say he got $2.5 million under the table for acting as lead plaintiff in several Milberg Weiss class-action suits. Vogel and former Milberg partner Steven G. Schulman have pleaded guilty.

So has ex-Milberg partner William S. Lerach, a former fundraiser for Edwards, who is himself a trial lawyer. Lerach is also a buddy of Bill Clinton dating back to his White House days, and donated more than $100,000 to the Clinton presidential library.

The odor of the criminal probe has been hovering around Milberg Weiss for some time, but apparently many top Democrats don’t mind the stink. Twenty-six candidates, including Rep. Tim Mahoney of Florida, have accepted campaign checks from donors connected to Milberg Weiss since the 2006 indictments.

Edwards took $4,600 from Lerach this year. Biden collected $2,700. Hillary Clinton grabbed $3,000 from Lerach, and a total of $4,600 from two other former Milberg Weiss lawyers.

She has also accepted $4,600 from the firm’s co-founder, Melvyn I. Weiss, who stands charged with conspiracy and obstruction of justice. Surprisingly, a Clinton spokesman told The Times last week that Clinton doesn’t intend to return Weiss’ money. We’ll see.

Trial lawyers have traditionally supported Democrats with the same gusto with which oil companies and defense contractors have backed Republicans. Every party has its fat-cat interest groups who believe, quite correctly, that hefty political donations buy influence.

In this instance, the mystery is why Clinton and the other Democrats would take a nickel from anyone so prominently linked to such slimy allegations. There are plenty of reputable (and affluent) trial lawyers who’ve never been indicted for anything.

One possible excuse is that the candidates didn’t know about the Milberg Weiss scandal, which would mean they’d been living in a subterranean cave without the benefit of newspapers, TV or the Internet.

Another defense would be that they didn’t know about the Milberg Weiss donations, which seems farfetched considering the firm’s heavy connections to the party. After all, its lawyers kicked in $500,000 toward the construction of a new headquarters for the Democratic National Committee.

The final possibility — and the only believable one — is that the candidates knew all about the indictments and accepted the money anyway, hoping nobody would notice.

It’s not illegal for a politician to accept campaign contributions from a defendant in a pending bribery case, or from somebody who’s copped a guilty plea.

But it sure looks bad, not to mention hypocritical.

It also becomes extremely hard to position yourself credibly on the side of ethical reform, and to attack your GOP opponents for fostering a ”culture of corruption” in Washington, D.C.

There’s nothing worse than corrupting the justice system for profit, which is what Milberg Weiss is accused of doing. With the trials pending, the Democrats should have treated those campaign checks like an anthrax valentine.

Now it’s too late. All that is left to do is plead ignorance and sheepishly give back the money.

Especially if you’re Hillary.

Yeah, that’s going to happen

Hillary enjoys wide lead in poll

From Fox News

hillary.jpg Once again, Hillary Rodham Clinton leads in a poll. This time, she was top choice when people were asked which major 2008 presidential candidate would make the scariest Halloween costume.

Asked about costume choices, 37 percent in an Associated Press-Ipsos survey this month chose New York Sen. Clinton, the front-runner among Democratic presidential contenders. Fourteen percent selected former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who leads Republicans in national polls.

No other candidate exceeded 6 percent.

Clinton was the choice of four in 10 men and one-third of women. While a predictable two-thirds of Republicans picked her, she also was the choice of 18 percent of Democrats. Among members of her own party, that made her second only to Giuliani as the scariest costume.

About one-third of independents, nearly half of whites and just over half of conservatives selected her.

Flag-folding Recitation banned

From The Scrooge Report

Through thousands of military burials, Memorial Honor Detail volunteers at Riverside National Cemetery have folded the American flag 13 times and recited the significance of every fold to survivors of those being laid to rest.

The first fold, a narrator tells relatives, represents life, the second a belief in eternal life.

The 11th fold celebrates Jewish war veterans and “glorifies the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob.”

A single complaint lodged against the words for the 11th fold recently prompted the National Cemetery Administration to ban the entire recital at all 125 national cemeteries.

There are no words…….

First, click on this link from Snopes, concerning the flag folding ceremony.
The script that is mentioned in this story, is not official. Nontheless, it is often requested, and if it is at the honored’s request, or his family, it should be allowed. I can’t abide by some people being so easily offended, then expecting everyone else to jump through hoops to satisfy their beliefs, over everyone elses.

Charlie Waters, parliamentarian for the American Legion of California, said he’s advising memorial honor details to ignore the edict, even if it means being kicked out of cemeteries.

“This is nuts,” Waters, a Korean War veteran, said in a telephone interview from Fresno. “There are 26 million veterans in this country and they’re not going to take us all to prison.”

Yes, Snopes is a good place to check out facts, however, I have found them to have a liberal slant. If you read the flag-folding article as linked in no2liberals post you can see how hard they want to downplay the “religious” aspect of the flag-folding. However, it is good to know of the origin of the folding.

Huckabee: Life is good

“Center stage at the renowned Surf Ballroom, Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee gave the bass guitar all he had: Born to be Wild, followed by R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A. Tweens, meanwhile, snapped cell phone pictures of the 52-year-old candidate and occasional rocker. Huckabee laughed, his dimples deepening in his cheeks.” 1

His campaign is hot. Life is good.

In the face of the recent spate of attacks on his credibility and his record as governor of Arkansas , Mike Huckabee remains enthusiastic and optimistic.

“I must be doing well,” Huckabee said Saturday morning in response when he was informed of Romney’s comment.

Huckabee for the first time passed Romney in a national poll on Friday. The Rasmussen Reports, considered one of the nation’s most accurate polling firm, announced Friday that “for the first time ever” Huckabee moved into the top four.
[…]
“I guess I’d be coming after me too,” Huckabee said. “I’d also be crying, if I’d spent all that money.” 2

Time’s Karen Tumulty even says of the attacks, that the attention “is a good thing.” 3

I agree.

Long stymied by their self-imposed quagmire of Dixiephobia, over-the-top rhetoric from the Left, and wildly exaggerated claims of “theocracy” serve only to unite Southern Christians. Left-wing interest groups frame their criticism around their pet issues, but these early attacks signal a growing fear of the potential generational loss of Judiciary favor. Their fear will serve to drive a form of rhetorical arson in the general election that will make the current anti-war silliness look tame by comparison.

Critics on the Right, most notably John Fund and Pat Toomey are advocating for their own self interests. Claiming the mantle of pro-business and pro-growth, their opposition to the Fair Tax reveals them to be neither. They represent the status quo – not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Toomey, along with some $2 million in advertising from the Club for Growth, ran an unsuccessful campaign to unseat Arlen Specter. He left Congress in 2004 to become President of …wait for it… the Club for Growth. 4 Toomey spends most of his time criticizing other Republicans for not being as conservative as he is. If a $2 million advertising war chest wasn’t enough to convince Pennsylvania voters of his conservative bona fides, then perhaps his brand of conservatism is not mainstream.

Nor are the entrenched interests on Wall Street fans of Huckabee. Labeling him a self-absorbed populist who favors the interests of Main Street over Wall Street, Fund’s preference for Romney’s or Guiliani’s pliable brand of fiscal policy is certainly understandable. Huckabee left the Governor’s office with approval ratings in the high 60’s, a nearly $1 Billion budget surplus, and has taken the American’s for Tax Relief pledge, which Guiliani hasn’t signed. 5 His commitment to good governance and fiscal responsibility really isn’t an issue to fair-minded Republicans.

The one issue that unites all Republicans is National Security. It is the reason that there is still such a large number of ideologically diverse candidates in the Republican field. These are candidates who have differences on a range of issues. Sorting out those differences is what the Primary process is all about. And, while some factions within the party have decided on a candidate, the large Christian base of the party has not. Huckabee is still largely unknown nationally, but that is quickly changing. As the campaign money continues to roll in, the buzz becomes measurable, and momentum undeniable, for Huckabee, life is good, indeed.

Update: mydd compares the Huck on-line campaign to Dean ‘03. That, my friends is high praise.

Which is all the more baffling, as I wrote in the story back in early July. W told them he would veto it if they sent the bill they sent, and that he wanted them to work on it, and he also wanted the members of the Adult party in Congress to offer a serious alternative. That Mike offered such a weak statement could be explained by campaigning, but the reality is the donks are just as happy with the issue, as they would be with socialized medicine. They are of the Silly party, and don’t view good governance as anything other than there personal aggrandizement.
Maybe Mike doesn’t want to blast them for their silliness, but at least offer a stronger statement.

Saturday Open: Boiled Peanuts are good for you

LISTEN TO THE Georgia-Florida Game!!! FROM AM930: THE FOX

Dang, Who knew?

Boiled Peanuts help protect against illness.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – For lovers of boiled peanuts, there’s some good news from the health front. A new study by a group of Huntsville researchers found that boiled peanuts bring out up to four times more chemicals that help protect against disease than raw, dry or oil-roasted nuts.

Lloyd Walker, chair of Alabama A&M University’s Department of Food and Animal Sciences who co-authored the study, said these phytochemicals have antioxidant qualities that protect cells against the risk of degenerative diseases, including cancers, diabetes and heart disease.

“Boiling is a better method of preparing peanuts in order to preserve these phytochemicals,” Walker said.

The study will appear in Wednesday’s edition of the American Chemical Society’s Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. The other co-authors in the study are A&M researchers Yvonne Chukwumah and Martha Verghese, as well as University of Alabama in Huntsville researcher Bernhard Vogler.

Walker said peanuts and other plants use phytochemicals for things such as helping avoid disease and insect attacks.

“These things are not nutrients; at the same time they have health benefits to humans,” he told The Birmingham News. “The trick is to keep those health benefits, not to process them out of the foods.”

According to Walker, water and heat penetrate the nuts, releasing beneficial chemicals to a certain point. Overcooking the nuts destroys the useful elements.

Alabama is third in the nation in the amount of peanuts produced with a crop valued at more than $67 million last year.

Mississippi is number 1 in the nation in per capita consumption of boiled peanuts.

OK, I just made that up. Heh.

Here’s an open thread for Saturday afternoon, watching (or listening to) the world’s largest outdoor cocktail party.

Huckabee: The Real Deal

This week, Mike Huckabee successfully made the transition to become a serious contender with ideas and opportunities. Money is coming in, poll numbers are up, and to those who are paying attention, many are realizing that this former clergyman is the real deal.

And, that is the point. Most of the public is still not paying attention. So, there’s still time for the opponents to frame this upstart candidate in an unwelcome light, and to shade the issues in such a way that the larger population may yet be influenced against him.

It’s no great surprise, and is part of Primary politics. Several examples come to mind, but none stands out like the Willie Horton issue, which, unlike the Internet, was created by Al Gore some twenty years ago. It really wasn’t that effective for Al Gore, but I think that reflects more on Gore’s candidacy than on the issue itself. The Bush campaign certainly made good use of it in the General Election.

In this compressed Primary season, the campaign activists understand that their attacks must be pointed, their rhetoric sharp: hit the hot buttons, plant seeds of doubt, put away the bean bags, and turn up the temperature. That’s the way it goes.

Two of those pointed pontifications caught my attention today. One was in NRO, the other in the WSJ, respected journals who have been known to butt heads at times, none more memorable than during the recent immigration debate. You can read the Governor’s response to WSJ here.

Since both camps are in agreement that they don’t heart Huckabee, I think it’s safe to say that immigration is not their big problem with Mike Huckabee. I do surmise that since a large portion of their livelihoods and that of their readership is directly influenced by the Tax Code, Mike Huckabee’s advocacy for the Fair Tax understandably scares the H-E-double-hockey-sticks out of them.

“The best thing the government could do,” Huckabee says, “is eliminate any type of penalties on productivity and innovation. One of the reasons that I support the Fair Tax is that it turns all sectors of the economy loose.”

Build a better moustrap, and reap the benefits. That doesn’t sound like a socialistic, anti-growth policy because it isn’t. But, it would represent a dramatic change in the status quo. It is an idea that is worthy of serious consideration and debate. Further, embracing a pro-growth, pro-profit program like the Fair Tax does not make one a populist, either. But it is bandied about as a convenient label for those whose sacred cows would be gored by its passage.

As the Primary season heats up, I’m very pleased with the quality of candidates vying for the job. We Republicans have much to be grateful for, not the least of which is the fact that the testing and vetting of the Primary process will help to produce a strong candidate, much as gold is purified by fire. Conservatives are ready for a cogent and articulate presentation of the conservative message, And, as much as we appreciate the steadiness and focus of President Bush in defending the homeland, the fact is, the message has been lost. The American People want to be inspired. NRO’s statement that Huckabee should not be on the ticket was short-sighted. I think if Rudy or Mitt could bring a couple of Northeastern states along with them, then Mike Huckabee should give them serious consideration to joining him on the ticket.

AP has a different take

For the woman who has everything…the birthday gift that Hillary didn’t want

By Sharon Kehnemui Liss
Fox News

WASHINGTONOne gift that Hillary Clinton is unlikely to enjoy on her 60th birthday Friday is the premiere of “Hillary Uncensored,” a scathing documentary whose 13-minute trailer has been No. 1 on Google Video since Oct. 10, with more than 1.1 million views to date.

The film’s first full-length showing is scheduled for Friday night at Harvard University, followed by viewings at universities through the weekend and a wrap Tuesday at the Metropolitan Club in New York City.

Among the allegations summarized in the documentary:

— Bill and Hillary Clinton solicited cash from Peter F. Paul, an international lawyer and businessman, even after Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager told The Washington Post she would not take money from him;

— FBI agents and U.S. attorneys colluded with the Clintons to keep Paul, who was convicted of cocaine possession and fraud, tangled up in the criminal courts for years;

— The Clintons later made sure Paul was kept in a Brazilian prison for 25 months, including 58 days in a maximum security cellblock nicknamed the “Corridor of Death,” while the Justice Department waited to extradite him;

— Hillary Clinton still hasn’t filed reports to the FEC enumerating Paul’s excessive contributions to her 2000 Senate campaign.

Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign spares no kindness about its view of Paul, whose long arrest record, officials say, demonstrates his inherent deceit.

“Peter Paul is a professional liar who has four separate criminal convictions, two for fraud. His video repackages a series of seven-year-old false claims about Senator Clinton that have already been rejected by the California state courts, the Justice Department, the Federal Election Commission and the Senate Ethics Committee,” Clinton’s campaign said in a statement to FOXNews.com.

While it’s a coincidence that the film about the New York senator and Democratic presidential candidate is being released on her birthday, the movie’s producers say it is no accident the film’s trailer is getting such attention.

Douglas Cogan, a businessman-turned-associate producer and researcher for the film, said he’s made it his mission to expose what he calls “the greatest campaign finance fraud that ever has been committed.”

The Clintons think “they are truly above the law,” Cogan said. “My country has never seen anyone like Hillary Rodham Clinton.”

The allegations in the film are not new, although much of the video is. The film resurrects claims made by the thrice-convicted Paul that he unwittingly agreed to violate election-funding laws in exchange for a pledge from Bill Clinton to work with him in his new venture, Stan Lee Media, after Clinton left the presidency.

The documentary revisits Paul’s claim that, in exchange for Bill Clinton’s promise to promote Stan Lee Media overseas, for which Paul said he was willing to pay $17 million, he also agreed to produce an August 2000 fundraising gala in Hollywood for Hillary Clinton’s 2000 New York Senate campaign.

“My interest in supporting Hillary Clinton was specifically to hire Bill Clinton,” Paul told FOXNews.com in a telephone interview, noting that Clinton’s 2000 Senate campaign “concocted” the whole idea of the fundraiser.

Paul said he believed that in exchange for organizing the gala, “I had accomplished the hiring of the president of the United States to work with me when he left the White House.”

The gala cost $1.2 million, which was under-reported to the Federal Election Commission and led to the arrest of Clinton’s then-Senate campaign fundraising chief, David Rosen.

Rosen was found not guilty; a co-host of the gala, Aaron Tonken, was sentenced in a separate case to more than five years in prison for misappropriating funds for charity to pay for fundraisers featuring Hollywood celebrities.

Paul never got to work with Bill Clinton. Stan Lee Media filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in February 2001, long after it became apparent to Paul that Clinton wasn’t going to join the company and, Paul alleges, had stolen one of Stan Lee Media’s chief investors.

Paul writes off his convictions in the 1970s for cocaine possession and defrauding Fidel Castro of $8.7 million as part of an international anti-Castro effort gone wrong. He adds that the securities fraud plea that he agreed to cop in March 2005 was to get out of jail after 43 months in Brazilian and New York prisons. He still is awaiting sentencing on that plea despite being under house arrest since then.

As for the Rosen case, he calls that a farce aimed at getting a Clinton crony off the hook. The accompanying civil case, he said, also set a legal precedent Hillary Clinton later used to get out of being a defendant in his case against her and her husband.

“I am not the one-dimensional villain that I am portrayed to be, but I am the victim not only of the Clintons” but of their associates, who Paul says tried to steal his assets and wrap him up in a corrupt court system.

“Not only was the indictment and the trial (of Rosen) a scam, the judge … turned it into a referendum on the credibility of Peter Paul,” Paul said, also faulting the prosecutor for not objecting to Judge Howard Matz’s characterization of Paul as a con man during his instructions to the jury.

“You conclude either that the prosecutor is incompetent or, worse, that the prosecutor is dogging the case.”

Paul claims that while he has been prosecuted and marginalized by the Clintons, his video evidence proves his case against them — that the power couple defrauded him by falsely pledging the former president’s post-White House services in exchange for footing the bill for all the gala’s expenses.

That video documentation, however, may be worth only the revenue from copies sold. The California Court of Appeals last week upheld, 3-0, a lower court’s ruling to excuse Hillary Clinton as a defendant in that suit. The court also noted that the new video isn’t new evidence.

“In his motion to admit new evidence, Paul also seeks to admit the videotaped recording of the July 17, 2000, telephone call to demonstrate Senator Clinton had sufficient knowledge of Paul’s business enterprises and the president’s involvement with Paul such that it would not have been a ‘fishing expedition’ to depose her. While the recording itself may have only been recently obtained by Paul, the substance of the conference call is not new evidence,” reads the ruling written by Judge P.J. Perluss.

Nonetheless, the conference call with then-first lady Clinton is among the most compelling moments in the new documentary. The video, taken in Paul’s Beverly Hills office a month before the gala, shows on one end of a teleconference, Paul, Tonken and their business partner Alana Stewart, Rod Stewart’s ex-wife. On the other end is Hillary Clinton.

Clinton can be heard saying: “Whatever it is you’re doing, is it OK if I thank you? … I am very appreciative and it sounds fabulous. I got a full report from Kelly (White House adviser Kelly Craighead) today when she got back and told me everything that you’re doing and it just sounds like it’s going to be a great event. But I just wanted to call and personally thank all of you. I’m glad you’re all together so I could tell you how much this means to me, and it’s going to mean a lot to the president, too.”

Paul’s attorney, Colette Wilson, argues that Clinton’s conversation proves she was in violation of campaign finance rules preventing candidates from personally having a hand in coordinating fundraising events in excess of $25,000.

The appeals court’s ruling to dismiss Hillary Clinton as a defendant is flawed because “my evidence showed that this gala was coordinated between the candidate and Peter Paul,” Wilson said. “The whole basis of (Clinton’s motion to dismiss) was her right to solicit campaign contributions, so she admitted” she knew about the gala planning.

Wilson said that the appeals court also erred when it cited the lower court’s claim that they were on a “fishing expedition” by demanding to depose Clinton about her knowledge of the gala.

“I would attack that by saying that the case is defined as too broad [when it] is asking to take a lot of people’s depositions. A fishing expedition means you don’t have a clue whether the person has any evidence or not,” she said.

But Wilson acknowledged that it’s the court’s discretion to admit new evidence or not.

“They don’t have to allow it in. The cutoff is what was available during the lower court submission,” she said.

Wilson contends that several of the videotapes, including the would-be smoking gun, weren’t available to Paul because they were confiscated by the FBI when the securities fraud investigation began in 2001 and were withheld from Paul until April of this year, long after the lower court heard the case.

“They still have the originals,” she noted, adding that the FBI sent the videos to a vendor to be copied and sent to Paul.

Wilson said she’s not certain she wants to appeal for an en banc hearing of the entire appeals court or to ask the California Supreme Court to take the case because it could mean a delay of two years before they can return to the underlying case — the alleged fraud committed by the Clintons in pledging that Bill Clinton would work for Stan Lee Media.

Of that, Wilson and Paul claim to have plenty of evidence and still are able to depose Hillary Clinton as a material witness.

Paul said he also is prepared to keep open the case against the Clintons through other means. He is filing a new complaint with the FEC and is requesting that when Michael Mukasey is confirmed as U.S. attorney general, he investigate how the government could have prosecuted Rosen when authorities knew he did not commit a crime.

Cogan said he hopes the film also shines light on Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

“Hillary can no longer feign ignorance in what went on here,” he said. “I think she is absolutely an unthinkable commander in chief.”

I’d say everything she’s planned her whole life has gone according to plan. Maybe a few bumps in the road, but that doesn’t matter to her. Only POWER matters, and she is one step away from her ultimate goal. I hope and pray we can stop her.

Apples, and Leopards, and OSX (oh my)

Leopard, the latest update of the Apple Mac operating system OS X, goes on sale on Friday.

The release ends months of waiting for Mac fans, after Apple pushed back the launch to finish development on its much-hyped iPhone.

Early reviews for Leopard have been positive with veteran technology writer Walt Mossberg calling it “evolutionary, not revolutionary”.

Apple is hoping to build on recent strong sales of its Mac computers.

In the last three months, Apple sold 2.2 million Macs, up 400,000 on its previous best quarter.

The company is touting Leopard as a Vista-beater, pointing to new features not found in the new operating system (OS) from Microsoft that drives many PCs.

Aren’t you excited? I thought so.

So, as fires continue to burn in California, and authorities find a live grenade at the Mexican embassy in New York, and Feds warn of shoe bombers again, and the Daily Pos kids are advocating conversion to moon god worship, and so on, and so on……..
We come to another Friday, time for The World Famous Friday Open Thread: A Free Speech Zone.

WFFOT: Better thread than dead……..

Moonbat advocates converting to islam

I suppose we shouldn’t be too surprised. This is just a continuation of the “better red than dead” theme that the Left advocated some 30 years ago. From the Daily Pos, A Simple Way to End the War on Terror…..(h/t DogByte6RER)….

While it appears from more than one point of view that the War in Iraq and the War on Terror are situations from which we may never be able to extricate ourselves, from the mountains of Pakistan comes a very simple solution: convert to Islam.

Before we reject this out of hand, lets seriously consider it for a moment: Osama Bin Laden promised the wars would be over if Americans convert to Islam.

This may sound like a lot to ask from the most religious country in the industrialized world. But of all the Christians in America today who profess to be religious, how many of us are seriously devout?

How many of us are really just religious lightweights, happy to simply go to church every Sunday, attend church socials, knock back a drink or two every Christmas and not worry ourselves about the deeper implications of our faith?

Given the way most of us pay any real attention to the tenets of our faith, life really wouldn’t be that different if we were to exchange one faith for another. The prayers would be different, but we would recite them just as mindlessly as we do today. The sermons would in all likelihood be exactly the same, and we’d continue to snore through them.

Sure, there are a few people here and there who take religion seriously, but they are in such a small minority that their protests can be easily ignored. All in all, converting to Islam would be a small price to pay for an end to the killing and maiming of our sons and daughters, not to mention the billions of dollars we could put to better use than fighting this perpetual war. So let’s do away with our religious pretences, adopt Islam as our new faith, add a few extra holidays to our calendar, and get down to the real business at hand: pumping oil.

What a f*ing maroon.
