Gingrich the father of Anna Nicole’s Baby? — Fox News Alert

Update #4: “I told you so!”

NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) – Larry Birkhead is the father of Anna Nicole Smith’s baby, according to DNA tests, and the late reality TV star’s former boyfriend emerged from a court hearing Tuesday to proclaim that his daughter would soon be home.

Update #3: “The nude photospread at the link on the first Update will prove without a doubt the fact that I am speaking truth to power.” Blogger Nuke Gingrich’s latest comments come amid charges that his “denial” of being Anna Nicole’s Baby-daddy is in fact a cynical attempt to drive up traffic at his award-winning website. “That’s just ridiculous. There is no evidence to support those charges. I cannot imagine anyone using poor Anna Nicole like that. This photospread is proof positive that I am not the father of Danielynn. Do you see me in any of those photos? I rest my case”

Update #2: “Just give me what I want, and I’ll go away.” Right Wing Blogger Nuke Gingrich has reportedly changed his mind….”I want the house in the Bahamas.”

Update: Planck’s constant has a flicker photospread of anna nicole (sans clothing) in his sidebar. [Welcome WordPress Blog of the day — thank you readers. ]

Conservative blogger Nuke Gingrich came forward today and announced that he is not the father of Anna Nicole’s baby, Danielynn Hope.

“There is absolutely no truth to the rumor”, Nuke said, “And I have no idea how the rumor started. As a matter of fact, I didn’t even know it was a rumor.”

annanic.jpgAs the looming custody battle heated up, “ Smith’s mother flew to the Bahamas on Saturday to check on the child, but the big question — the identity of the baby’s father — will be decided in a courtroom.” Source

384433538_64963497cc1.jpgNukegingrich, known for his insightful news and comment, and his dry sense of humor, wondered aloud how such a rumor could get started. “Well, after n2l got two straight Top 50 Blog of the day posts, I guess I uhmm, somebody figured they had better do something to attract the search engine bots, this being such a hot story and the cable news networks are all Nicole all the time.”

Three on a match

threeonamatch.jpgThree stories today have served the purpose of jerking me out of my post election doldrums. While I’ve been spending valuable time and energy against our political opponents, I’ve completely taken my eye off of the ball, and allowed my dislike for the tactics of the political leftists to occupy my time.

I’ve also spent a lot of time over at NowPublic. That time spent has not been a total waste, as I’ve managed to post news stories of interest, as well as respond to many of the more ridiculous claims of the leftists. Interestingly enough, I’ve discovered that as a rule, the leftists are uncomfortable with being put in the position of having to defend the indefensible, and support the unsupportable. In that respect, it has been time well spent, and I encourage many of you to drop by NowPublic and join the fight. The opportunity to have an effect on the news of the day is something that I think is worthwhile, especially in the arena of politics, where public perception is the reality. The leftists must be challenged in this arena if we on the right can ever hope to get a fairer shake in the electronic media.

First, a print story from CNN :

At a recent debate over the battle for Islamic ideals in England, a British-born Muslim stood before the crowd and said Prophet Mohammed’s message to nonbelievers is: “I come to slaughter all of you.”

“We are the Muslims,” said Omar Brooks, an extremist also known as Abu Izzadeen. “We drink the blood of the enemy, and we can face them anywhere. That is Islam and that is jihad.”

Next, an analysis of jihad in Pakistan by Stephen Schippert, called Smoke of the Horizon, and posted over at Redneck’s Revenge.

It is believed that the Taliban-al-Qaeda alliance in Pakistan has amassed a force of fighters that is over 200,000 strong, organized principally around seven key terrorist leaders, including key local al-Qaeda commander Faqir Mohammed, who escaped the US strike in Bajur mentioned above.

With news that Afghani intelligence agents captured “one of the most high-profile Taliban spokesmen,” Mohammad Hanif (aka Abdul Haqiq), it is the latest indicator that the vast majority of captures and strikes against Taliban and al-Qaeda forces operating in or from Pakistan’s own territory have come from American, Afghani or NATO operations. With the September release of virtually all imprisoned al-Qaeda operatives by Pakistan, the Musharraf government is clearly loathe to restock its prison system with these who have clear designs on his demise and the establishment of an Islamic State of Pakistan, complete with the existing nuclear arsenal of the only nuclear-armed Muslim nation in the world.

And finally, one of the most powerful videos I’ve seen, UK Channel 4’s Undercover Mosque.

Update: 

Dr Mohammed Naseem, from Birmingham Central Mosque, said: “It is disturbing that Channel Four focuses on these extremists who do exist in all kinds of societies.

“If you look at areas of the extreme Christian right you will find similar views.” link UmmahNewsLinks

It’s Morning in America, AND it’s 9/10/01 all over again!

I got a great e-mail from pjalpha …(aka Mrs. Nuke)

“I feel so much better”…

“The Democrats new promise “A New Direction For America ”

The stock market is at a new all-time high and America ‘s 401K’s are back.
A new direction from there means, what?

Unemployment is at 25 year lows.
A new direction from there means, what?

Oil prices are plummeting.
A new direction from there means, what?

Taxes and interest rates are at 20 year lows.
A new direction from there means, what?

Federal tax revenues are at all-time high. A new direction from there means, what?

The Federal deficit is down almost 50%, just as predicted over last year.
A new direction from there means, what?

Home valuations are up 200% over the past 3.5 years.
A new direction from there means, what?

Inflation is in check, hovering at 20 year lows.
A new direction from there means, what?

Not a single terrorist attack on US soil since 9/11/01.
A new direction from there means, what?

Osama bin Laden is living under a rock in a dark cave, having not surfaced
in years, if he’s alive at all, while 95% of Al Qaeda’s top dogs are either dead or in custody, cooperating with US Intel.
A new direction from there means, what?

Several major terrorist attacks already thwarted by US and British Intel,
including the recent planned attack involving 10 Jumbo Jets being exploded in mid-air over major US cities in order to celebrate the anniversary of the 9/11/01 attacks.
A new direction from there means, what?

Just as President Bush foretold us on a number of occasions, Iraq was to be made “ground zero” for the war on terrorism — and just as President Bush said they would, terrorist cells from all over the region are arriving from the shadows of their hiding places and flooding into Iraq in order to get their faces blown off by US Marines rather than boarding planes and heading to the United States to wage war on us here.
A new direction from there means, what?

Now let me see, do I have this right? I can expect:
The economy to go South

Illegals to go North

Taxes to go Up

Employment to go Down

Terrorism to come In

Tax breaks to go Out

Social Security to go away

Health Care to go the same way gas prices have gone

But what the heck!

I can gain comfort by knowing that Nancy P, Hillary C, John K, Edward K, Howard D, Harry R, and Obama have worked hard to create a comprehensive National Security Plan, Health Care Plan, Immigration Reform Plan, Gay Rights Plan, Same Sex Marriage Plan, Abortion On Demand Plan, Tolerance of Everyone and Everything Plan, How to Return all Troops to the U.S. in The Next Six Months Plan, A Get Tough Plan, adapted from the French Plan by the same name and a How Everyone Can Become as Wealthy as We Are Plan.

I forgot the No More Katrina Storm Plan.

Now I know why I feel good after the elections. I am going to be able to sleep so much better at nights knowing these dedicated politicians are thinking of me and my welfare.”

Rep. Jefferson Re-elected in Louisiana

 

U.S. Rep. William Jefferson easily defeated his fellow Democratic opponent in a runoff election Saturday, despite an ongoing federal bribery investigation.

In complete but unofficial returns, Jefferson, Louisiana’s first black congressman since Reconstruction, received 57 percent of the vote over state Rep. Karen Carter, who had 43 percent.

“You Know What? We’re Winning”

After we we speculated Monday night as to the identity of the true author of the Rockefeller-Snowe letter to ExxonMobil, I happened to look at the site-tracking meter which tells me a little bit about who happens drops by NN&V.

We had visitors.

Following the trail back to the origin of one particular visit, I found none other than environmentaldefense.org. Environmental Defense was named in the Taranto editorial as one of the organiztions aligned against the global warming “deniers”. They are a determined group. Indeed, their legislative point-person, Melissa Carey has boldly declared, “2007 is the year we need to start making law. “

“The special interests who have tried to prevent global warming action have used scare tactics, warning of huge economic costs. They don’t want Congress to understand that if we fight global warming the smart way – by setting a national cap on pollution and creating market incentives for industry to innovate – we not only cut emissions, but we give businesses the opportunity and flexibility to do it efficiently and at a long-term net cost savings.

“And you know what? We’re winning.”

Sounds a little bit like our letter-writer doesn’t she.

I find it interesting that the same people who are most relieved to hear new Sec-Def Gates say that “we are not winning” in Iraq are so excited about the prospects of claiming victory, and ramming home this legislation, the Climate Stewardship Act. And, although I half-jokingly referred to the religious fervor of the global warming enthusiastists as the “GAS Crowd” (Gaiaist Apopcalyptic Syndrome), it is their arrogance self-righteousness that they must not be questioned which makes me want to push back and question them. And not only their science, but the motives behind their apocalyptic conclusions as well.

Fred Krupp, GAS President, in a website blurb made this comment:

Like other Americans, we reviewed our priorities after the September 11 attacks on the United States. We concluded that our job is to preserve a world worth defending.

Unlike Mr. Krupp and the rest of the GAS Crowd, we also reviewed our priorities after the September 11 attacks on the United States, and concluded that our first job is to preserve life and liberty. Without these, who will be left to preserve the world? In their blind devotion to a cause, Krupp and the GAS Crowd endanger the very world they claim to want to preserve.

Much more eloquently stated by Lord Nigel Lawson, (from The American Thinker)

The irrationality and intolerance of Eco-fundamentalism, says Lawson, regards the “questioning of its mantras” as “a form of blasphemy.” And he concludes with an apocalyptic vision of his own – and one far more devastating in its consequences than Climate Change: “There is no greater threat to the people of this planet than the retreat from reason we see all around us today.”

The Next Few Days …

Monday, I saw this headline:

“The future of the Middle East, certainly the future of Lebanon may well be decided in the next several days,” U.S. envoy to the United Nations John Bolton told BBC radio.

Bolton is not a man given to hyperbole. To say that he is direct is probably an understatement. His assessment of the situation in Lebanon and the Middle East in general is significant: he understands that the Democrat majority will most likely not allow him an opportunity to continue in his present position. He has nothing to lose by speaking frankly.
Yesterday, I read this assessment a The Adventures of Chester:

The next few days may be decisive in Iraq. Things to look for are:

-a collapse of the national government
-a mass exodus from Baghdad (Westhawk’s post points to evidence that 150 Baghdad residents are entering Fallujah daily)
-de facto partition lines in the city (geography would indicate the Tigris, but you never know)
-the declaration of shadow or oppositional governments…

Chester isn’t given to hyperbole either.

Here is how Michael Freund at Jerusalem Post sees it:

Without realizing it, we are standing at a defining moment not just for the Bush presidency, but for the future of the entire Jewish people and the Western world itself.

Enormous pressure is being brought to bear on the president to embrace diplomacy as the means for resolving the various crises in the Middle East. In recent months, the president has come under harsh criticism for the conduct of the war in Iraq. The results of the midterm elections earlier this month gave control over both houses of Congress to the Democrats, who will surely push for a more conciliatory approach.

And as The New York Times reported on Monday, the bipartisan Iraq Study Group headed by former US secretary of state James Baker will recommend that Washington engage rogue states such as Iran and Syria and open a dialogue with them. In other words, it is sounding more and more like 1940 all over again.

The daily tally of treasure is enormous, as are the sacrifices being made by our military and their families. And even though the number of days in this struggle has now exceeded that of WWII, the future uncertainty and the increasing sense of impending conflict makes me believe that we are much closer to the beginning of this struggle than to the end.

A Conservative’s Response to Michael Moore’s “Pledge”

Update: This is a Top 50 ,Top 20 WordPress Post of the day. Thank you readers.

tgiving.jpgHappy Thanksgiving. Our home is the center of an extended family gathering, full of the love of family and friends, things which give our lives pleasure and meaning. We have much to be thankful for, indeed.

And even though Michael Moore is of the opinion that our country is now in the hands of the Left, we take great comfort in knowing that the fate of our nation is in the hands of a much higher Power.

Last week, Mr. Moore extended an olive branch to the political Right which had all of the sincerity of a John Kerry apology. At first, I treated his missive with the same response that I usually give Mr. Moore’s work – I ignored it. But as different organs of Big Media gave greater exposure to his words, I changed my mind, and decided to respond as well as to reach out to others in the blogosphere. Their contributions are acknowledged in the last paragraph of this post. Mr. Moore’s sense of humor usually involves the ridicule of his target which is portrayed as high-minded social satire. Frankly, I think he is just plain mean. In this post-election victory dance, Moore reveals in addition, a stunning lack of understanding of many of the things that we on the Right take for granted as common knowledge.

Thus, here is “A Conservative’s Response to A Liberal’s Pledge To Disheartened Conservatives.”

1) We will always respect you. We will never, ever equate respect for a person with respect for another’s actions or ideas. When your actions are unpatriotic, we pledge to continue to bring it to your attention. When your words border on rhetorical arson, we pledge to continue to extinguish the fires which offer aid and comfort to our enemies.

2) We pledge to continue to marry whomever we want. We weren’t aware that we needed your either your permission or your blessing.

3) The Federal checkbook is balanced by either increasing revenues to the Treasury, or by decreasing outlays. Revenues have been increased to unprecedented levels because of tax-cuts and other incentives built in to the Tax Code. What reductions do you pledge to support in order to bring the equation into balance? And, just a reminder, cutting Defense expenditures won’t help you reach the stated concern for the fiscal security of future generations of Americans. Without National security, fiscal security for future generations is moot.

4) Our men and women who serve in the Armed Forces will continue to follow the orders given by the chain of command. And, until the Commander In Chief decides differently, your ‘cut and run’ pledge is just wishful thinking on your part. By the way, Lt. Kerry voted for (at least once) military action, and I’m quite certain that he was in the military (of course, until we see his 180, we can’t draw any conclusions). Are you saying that he did NOT serve? Have you seen his 180?

5) We welcome an honest debate on paying for the general health and welfare of our nation’s citizens. All options are on the table. Deal?

6) Since you have all the answers regarding global warming, how do you propose to end the causes which are natural and not man-made? Mother Nature isn’t too concerned about your legal team, and cycles of climate change aren’t affected by demagoguery. BTW, your side doesn’t want clean air and clean water any more than our side does. Where we disagree is on the means of achieving these goals. And, while we’re at it, can we at least consider the fact that allowing our forests to go unmanaged and unchecked by under-growth simply adds to the risk of serious wildfires? A uniform dense forest is a poor habitat for wildlife. (hint: Google-“Monarch Butterfly”).

7) We find it interesting that you still don’t consider OBL to be a terrorist. I remember your statements just after 9/11/01 that “There is no terrorist threat.” I take your pledge, “We will protect you,” with a great skepticism, developed after years of watching your actions rather than listening to your words.

8) We pledge to not to stick our noses, or anything else, into your bedrooms. But, it’s just not serious for you to put abortion into the same category with sexual preferences, unless your purpose is simply to obfuscate the issue.

9) We agree that you will never take away our guns. Now, enough with your silly gun phobias. Different firearms are for different purposes. We don’t need a 30-06 to do the job of a .22 rat shot round, and vice-versa, and there are times when we would definitely prefer a .357 or a .45 over a 9 mm. A 12 gauge and a .410 are also used for different purposes. We would no more dream of using the wrong firearm than we would try to chop down a tree with a spoon. You’ve already told us of your secret admiration of our tree-chopping abilities, so just expand your reasoning to understand that the correct choice of tools goes a long way toward successful completion of any mission. Plus, since infringement against our right to bear arms is unconstitutional, we are comfortable in knowing that this right has a greater degree of legal weight than certain judicially derived prenumberances.

10) When the minimum wage is raised, and it will be, can we acknowledge that it is being done to keep pace with inflation rather than to fulfill your noble political cause to improve the financial lot of women, and the working poor? Since we own most of the small businesses which will bear the brunt of your perceived largesse, please understand that wage and income are merely indications of a person’s value to an employer. It also has to do with negotiating skills, personal assertiveness, and an individual’s marketable skills.

11) We certainly pledge to continue to acknowledge the blessings of liberty, and the grace and blessings from The Almighty, although we understand that the definition of “blessing” has changed as our relationship with The Almighty has deepened. Some of the greatest blessings in our lives have presented themselves as problems, challenges, and crises. We’ve learned that we must not quit or retreat when confronted, lest we miss the blessings which inevitably follow to those who overcome.

12) We pledge to support you in your efforts to remove corrupt politicians from office, and we encourage your side to follow the example of Republicans who have been confronted with their mis-deeds: Resign. We would be happy to provide you with a short-list to prove your good intent, but the fact is, you know who they are. Let us see if your actions support your words.

I realize the presumptuousness of “speaking for” the political Right, and I would be remiss if I didn’t admit as such. But, whatever the future holds for our great Nation, we do understand the fragile nature of our liberty, the need to defend it, and the willingness to be governed by the consent of the voters. We may not wish you luck, but we do wish you well.

As far as the Frappuccino, thanks for the invitation, I’m looking forward to it. Perhaps we can get together here in Flyover Country, and you’ll see that we really aren’t the monsters that you fear us to be.

Eye of the Storm: The thumpin’ as seen from the Middle East

 

It may take months before the full impact of the mid-term elections on American foreign policy may be gauged. However, one thing is already certain: radical elements throughout the Middle East see the defeat of President George W Bush’s Republican Party as a victory for themselves.

source

Designating the US election as “the beginning of the end for Bush,” Ayatollah Imami Kashani told a Friday prayers congregation in Teheran that the Americans were learning the lesson the Israelis had been taught by last summer’s war in Lebanon.

“Faced with the resistance of dedicated martyrdom-seekers, the Americans are heading for the exits,” adds Ayatollah Mahmoud Khatami, a leading radical cleric.

Teheran decision-makers believe that the Democratic Party’s victory will lift the pressure off the Islamic Republic with regard to its nuclear program.

bushitler.jpgIt should come as no great surprise that the Islamists believe this, and recent comments from the incoming Democrat leadership has done nothing to cause them to believe otherwise.

The question that keeps recurring to me is this: If George W. Bush has established an Imperial Presidency, and is intent on setting up a fundamentalist theocracry by the Christian Taleban, then what difference does it make who controls Congress? Won’t Democrats be shipped en masse to Gitmo? Or, were those arsonic rhetorical charges simply expressions of patriotic dissent? If so, then why the calls for Bi-partisanship now? What about my rights of patriotic dissent?

No, the answer lies in the simple fact that Democrats view their political opposition in this country as a bigger threat than the Islamists. I don’t know how any thinking person can review the events of the past decade and come to that conclusion. Pity………………………………………………………………………………………………………..(photo credit:Zombietime News)

Pelosi, ‘Drain the Swamp’

pelosi_jefferson.jpgAs Nancy Pelosi stated her goals for honest government in Washington, she made this pledge in an interview with NBC:

Pelosi: “Drain the swamp” means to turn this Congress into the most honest and open Congress in history. That’s my pledge — that is what I intend to do.

Meanwhile, William Jefferson (D-LA) is still alive in his re-election bid, facing a December 12 runoff with Karen Carter (D-LA). The presumptive speaker needs to step up to the plate and demand that Jefferson withdraw from this race immediately. His case goes far beyond the oft-stated bar of “the appearance of impropriety”, and the entire country knows it.

It’s time for Ms. Pelosi to show what kind of leader she is going to be by beginning the swamp draining exercise within her own party caucus.

The Government We Deserve

liberty1ue5.gif

PierreLeGrand takes a look at the election results and says, “We Blinked”

After the Madrid bombings the Spanish people threw out the incumbents and voted in those who promised to “talk” to the terrorists. America laughed at such cowardice thinking how tough she has been in the past. Well…

No Madrid Bombing but we still voted in those who promised talk to terrorists instead of taking action against terrorists. Shall we attempt to blame the politicians who admittedly botched much in the last two years or shall we blame the American people? We got the Government we deserved as a people, we blinked in the face of terror. Excuses that the Main Stream Media misled us do not impress because it is possible to bypass the MS if you care enough to know. You can get the information to make informed decisions about politicians if you have the stomach to face the facts as they stand. But for many those facts are too bleak, and instead of facing them, we as a people have decided to believe that reality only exists if we admit to it.

 

Now pray that not too many of us die because it is inevitable that those we fight will have a statement. An opening bid in the “negotiations”. Unlike Spain we will be hit again and again as our enemies attempt to gain favorable responses from a party filled to the brim with people who believe talk is a substitute for action.

srv and bbk – the sky is crying; ain’t giving up on love; don’t lose your cool; pride and joy

RepDefender: (A simple how-to-get-rich scheme)

The mistakes you make can live forever, unless you hire somebody to clean up your mess.

That’s the concept behind the new startup called “Reputation Defender”.

Michael Fertik and his partners originally conceived of ReputationDefender as a way for parents to protect their children from potentially damaging postings to social networking sites like MySpace or Facebook.

“I don’t like the idea that kids and teenagers might suffer lifelong harm because of momentary mistakes,” says Fertik.

Using both site-scraping robots and good old-fashioned human detective skills, ReputationDefender promises to scour the internet — particularly social networking sites like MySpace, Facebook, Xanga and Flickr — for materials that could threaten the author’s employability once he reaches the professional world and its army of Google-savvy hiring managers.

ReputationDefender breaks its services into three categories: “My Reputation,” which is aimed at adults hoping to track down and eliminate those momentary lapses of reason; “My Child,” for parents who want to protect their children from errors of youth that may come back to haunt them later in life; and “My Privacy,” which helps to remove a client’s data from the web’s various data-brokering websites that store private information such as Social Security and driver’s license numbers, home addresses and phone numbers.

zotkerryironyio11.gifMembers pay a $16 per month charge for maintenance, and a $30 service fee for each instance of having material remove from the web. Also available in the “John Kerry” jumbo economy size.

I see a perfect match between this company’s business plan, and a blogger’s opportunity (namely, me) to make a few bucks without having to sell out to adsense or any of the other web advertising schemes.

So, here’s my first paycheck. I mean, if RepDefender is going to get $30 for taking down material protected by the First Amendment, then I ought to be compensated for taking it down. And, since this is vimto’s toon, he gets a cut too. So, RepDefender can have $10, I’ll take $10, and $10 to the v-meister. Fair is Fair.

The way I see it, I don’t have to do anything but keep posting this stuff, and RepDefender is going to make a cool living for me. I love it. John Kerry can be counted on to continue making a complete fool out of himself, and I’ll just act like Kerry “fly-paper” and post it all here. Capitalism — It’s the American way, after all.

Kerry’s Fate Hinges On Big Dem Win

Rove Weather Machine?

rove2.jpgSeattle: Helicopters and hovercraft were pressed into rescue service as Gov. Chris Gregoire declared a state of emergency Monday for 18 counties, authorizing mobilization of the National Guard and directing the state Emergency Management Division to coordinate assistance after more than six inches of rain fell in 24 hours in some areas.

(State College, PA) – Heavy rain and flooding in the Pacific Northwest continue today as voters head to the polls. Election Day began with rain moving through the Southeast and dry weather in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast; however, showers will arrive before the polls

A storm system moving across the Southeast is being fed by moisture from the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic. Rain has been falling from Georgia to the Carolinas; however, the Severe Weather Center reports the potential for severe weather will be limited today. There is enough instability for the development of thunderstorms from southern Georgia into Florida.

The showers and thunderstorms across Alabama will wind down by this afternoon as the storm system leaves the state. As the system heads to the northeast tonight, a few thunderstorms will rumble along the coast in Carolina and Georgia and across the Florida Peninsula.

Farther north, rain from this system will result in a wet Election Day across Indiana and Ohio, as well as Lower Michigan. Showers will move into the Northeast and the Mid-Atlantic States later this afternoon and a steadier rain will develop tonight.

For more on how the weather may influence voter turnout, visit the Election Day Special Report and News Director Steve Penstone’s interview with Penn State University Political Science Professor Michael Berkman.

Pelosi Agenda — Michael Kinsey agrees with Vimto

Michael Kinsey takes a look at the Pelosi Agenda.

He’ll tell you all about it, but he wants you to go and vote first. Why? Here’s what CQ has to say

Michael Kinsley, no friend to the GOP, decided to take a look at the suddenly-scarce Nancy Pelosi’s plan for governance if and when the Democrats take control of Congress. Kinsley expected a platform of reasonable competence, one he could promote — apparently in the final hours of the midterm cycle. Instead, he found it to be a rehash of the worst Democratic stereoptypes, full of euphemisms for surrender and a slew of spending initiatives to break the federal budget:

We could have saved Mike a lot of time. Instead of stewing over Nancy’s 31 page Manifesto, He could have just taken a quick look at what we’ve been telling him, courtesy of our own Vimto.

And, just for good measure, one more look at the demo standard bearer for ’04. Interesting article in today’s Washington Times talks about the impact of kerry’s “joke” on independent voters.

Philadelphia Phraud

Breaking: from Redstate:

In precincts 7, 19, 51 in Philly, PA, the crowds are going wild. Inside several voting locations, individuals have poured white out onto the polling books and the poll workers are allowing voters to go into the polls and vote without first registering. Several individuals are on hand demanding that voters vote straight Democrat.

RNC lawyers have headed to the scene of the incidents, which are occurring in mostly hispanic precinct locations. The District Attorney has also been contacted.

More from the ground: Reports of voter intimidation by son-in-law of Philadelphia City Commissioner in 19th Ward. Carlos Mantos is not allowing Republican poll watchers with valid poll-watching certificates monitor polling places.

Using the Hugo Chavez voter tactics. Probably have a bus outside taking these bastids from one precinct to another.

Maw, go fetch me my shootin’ iron.

Game Face

It’s been a long and difficult campaign season, full of negativity, manipulation, and downright dishonesty on the part of the opposition party. The war in Iraq, despite unreported progress, and despite the fact that the President has often repeated that “difficult times lie ahead”, has become difficult to watch as our own casualties mount. As the violence and destruction, and the golden opportunity for independence and liberty is seemingly slipping through the fingers of the Iraqi people like so many grains of desert sand, even the intelligence and bravery of our military men and women has become fair political game.

Our political opponents want victory so badly they can taste it, and if you believe the polling, they are well on their way to a victory the size of Gingrich’s victory in ’94. I well remember Peter Jennings’ “angry white male”, “temper tantrum” explanations for the ’94 results, and I’m sure that the talking heads have their talking points memorized and teleprompters ready to explain the ins and outs of the Democrat victory in tomorrow’s election. That is, of course, if you believe the polling. Captain Ed at CQ Blog has a look at some internal numbers by Pew Research that should make conservatives more than cautiously optimistic. I’ll post a link below.

bullelephant21.jpgPew Research actually confirms much of what I’ve thought regarding the overall mood of the electorate. It’s going to be an interesting night.

Evangelicals (which includes me) are pretty tired of being told that Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell, and whats-his-name Dobson from Focus on the Family are the exclusive faces and voices of Christian Republicans. I don’t give a hoot about their political opinions. Their job is to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus, and anything else they’re saying or doing is on their own time.

The latest round of “Preachers Gone Wild” is no different now than when Jimmy Swaggart, and Jim Bakker got theirs. Preachers are just men who are subject to the same temptations that all of us are, except when they fall, it makes a much larger and louder crash. Of course, our opponents on the left like to hold them up as shining examples of Christian hypocrisy, as if we need another reason to accept the fact that absent the grace of God, we are all a pathetic bunch. And, the fact that we can remember the times in our lives that we thought we were invincible, infallible men of our own creation, doesn’t give us any great satisfaction to see people in charge of churches fail miserably. Instead, it reminds us of where we were and what we were doing when God got our attention, even if He had to use a 2X4 as His tool of choice. Frankly, we’re tired of being held up for ridicule by the talking heads of the secular media because of our faith. The constant bashing we get from the left reinforces rather than discourages our political participation. Despite their best efforts to depress the Christian vote with gay-bashing, outings, and scandal mongering, Evangelicals will befuddle the left again with a large turnout, overwhelmingly for Republican candidates.

Another group of Republicans that will be there at the polls are the ones I call “9-11 Republicans.” They see quite clearly that their normal proclivity to vote Democrat would only ensure that the power of governance would be granted to the political party that just doesn’t “get it” with regards to National Security. They are concerned about social issues, but they rightly believe that staying free from the threat of islamic supremacism takes precedence over social concerns. They’ll be there, and vote Republican by a large majority.

Military families, Check. Michael Steele Republicans, Check. Ronald Reagan Republicans, Check.

As a matter of fact, the only ones that I’m not too sure of are the moderate Republicans, which, unless there is a scandal involved, are the only ones that seem to get any press. They are more likely to have a defeatist BDS attitude, and more likely than others to either stay home, or not enthusiastically support conservative candidates. But, they’ll be at the polls, if it doesn’t rain.

I could be totally wrong about this, and may even have to eat a little crow. I’m told it tastes like chicken. I don’t believe so. I believe instead, that I will be doing some crowing.

Here’s the link to the CQ analysis that I was talking about. Read it. Have faith. And trust that whatever the outcome, God will continue to bless this nation.

See you at the polls.

>>>Nuke

Update at LateThirty: The momentum continues with a fourth poll in recent days showing Republicans gaining ground on Democrats in the closing days of the election. James Carville and Stan Greenberg’s Democracy Corps poll (November 2-5) confirms the findings of three other polls released in the last two days that show Republicans gaining ground in their competitive district survey……Rove, you magnificent bastid

Yesterday’s NYT story about Saddam’s nuclear program has quickly changed from a political embarrassment for the Bush Administration to an apparent vote of confidence in his decision to change the regime in Iraq.

This response from Rep. Peter Hoekstra (R-MI) underscores his concern that the UN agency in charge of monitoring Saddam’s supposedly dormant nuclear program had been penetrated by Iraqi intelligence, as reported by Michelle Malkin:

“… my staff’s preliminary review of the documents in question suggests that at least some of them may be internal IAEA documents. There is a serious question of why and how the Iraqi these documents in the first place. We need to explore that carefully – I certainly hope there will be no evidence that the IAEA had been penetrated by Saddam’s regime.

Rep Hoekstra’s concern may have been discovered to be a legitimate one today. An partial translation of captured Iraqi intelligence document ISGP-2003-00020767   shows the intent of the Iraqi regime to penetrate IAEA headquarters in Vienna. Saddam was also intent on spying on OPEC, also headquartered in Vienna, as well as on the Austrian government itself. The independent translator, blogger jveritas, has translated a number of the captured documents downloaded from the FMSO website. Following is the translation of page 1 and page 6 of the above referenced document:

Foreign Ministry

The Office of the Minister

The Department of Research and Information Analysis

Date: 3/2/1997

Secret

To: The Embassy of Iraq/ Vienna

The Department of Research and Information Analysis/2

Included is the preliminary work plan to review it and work according to it and you will be provided with any changes in the future.

Please review…. With regards

B. Important Targets

2. Attempt to get the researches and studies that are done by OPEC and the Atomic Energy Agency.

End of partial translation

There are some 120 million captured Iraqi documents. To date, only 1% has been translated. One percent.

Thank you jveritas. Your work is important, and your contribution is invaluable.

NYT issues correction on kerry lie

Shame On Him

I posted a link to Mr. Ronald Griffin’s moving tribute to his son, Kyle in the previous thread. But, he truly deserves a thread of his own. You really must read it all.

It is in my mind the height of irony that John Kerry, a Yale graduate, would make two other Yale graduates the butt of his supposed joke. One we all knew as President Bush; the other is known mostly to those who have proudly served with and under him. On the day Kyle died, this gallant warrior was to take command of Kyle’s parent unit, the 519th Military Intelligence Battalion. Kyle was on his way to the ceremony when he and his buddies were killed. Here is a man who is the epitome of intellect, character and gallantry–an individual that Mr. Kerry does not believe exists.

John Kerry stands alone, to be judged by his words. He has given us the rare opportunity to look into the soul of a politician, and he has shown himself wanting, especially in view of the fact that he asked us to allow him the honor and privilege of leading our gallant military at a time of war. It is rare in life to be able to know the consequences of both sides of a decision. Mr. Kerry has clearly demonstrated what manner of president he would have been. Fortunately the American electorate denied him that high honor.

Mr. Griffin is the father of Spc. Kyle Andrew Griffin, a recipient of the Army Commendation Medal, Army Meritorious Service Medal and the Bronze Star, who was killed in a truck accident on a road between Mosul and Tikrit on May 30, 2003.

And, by all means, please view this touching presentation of Until Then. For Kyle.

A Pound of Kerry Flesh

Welcome to our guests from  Angel’s NYC Marathon Open Trackback. 

—————————————————–

Dad passed away one month before 9/11. As much as I’ve missed him since, a part of me is glad that he didn’t witness that awful day. I think I know what he would have done. After a few reflective days, he would have gone down to the sporting goods store and begun stocking up on ammunition and survival supplies. Just like I did.

Mom gave me his old leather jacket, and his shotgun, earthly treasures with a value steeped in sentiment and respect.

I’m missing him now as I write, in a way that I haven’t felt for some time.

He joined the US Navy at age 16, toward the end of WW II. I asked him once how long he served. He winked and said, “Long enough. Duration plus six months.” He served, all the while homesick for his family in Edwards, Mississippi, and missing his mother’s cooking. It’s really not fair to call Edwards a town. There are only a few dozen residents in that sleepy little hamlet, a few miles from Vicksburg. He was the youngest son in a family of three girls and five boys. All of his brothers served, all in the Navy.

In the last few months of his life, I saw something in his eyes that I had never seen before. I saw for a moment, a look of fear in his eyes. And, it was only for just a moment. He called on me to help him do something that I had seen him do hundreds of times. Perhaps what I saw was born more out of his frustration than fear. Frustration from the physical limitations put on his body by advancing years. But I recall these things, and I think of my uncles who served in two wars, my cousins who served in Vietnam, and I know in my heart that I am not ready to let go and move on from the simmering anger that I feel regarding John Kerry’s most recent insult to the men and women who serve.

If you’re not old enough to remember the Winter Soldier hearings, then you’ve probably seen the videos… the handsome young man, the articulate patrician soldier, speaking of the grisly atrocities committed by our own. Those speeches launched his political career, supported by the often reported myth that he spoke to Congress under oath, subject to the penalties of perjury.

He was not under oath. Nor were any of the Winter Soldiers who gave “testimony.”

He was free to promote the slanderous lies of Winter Soldier and the entire V.V.A.W. with the full knowledge and support of the media. And, that is exactly what he did. Just as Sy Hersch is doing today: undermining, maligning, and slandering our men and women who serve, for the sole purpose of doing political damage to George Bush. Kerry disgusts me. Hersch disgusts me.

I’m mad as Hell, and I’m not about to let go and move on.

“Reporting For Duty”… The Kerry Apology

Welcome BBC readers …………………………………………………………………………>>>return to BBC

Much of what we know about recent history exists in our own selective memories. Whether it has been shaped in part by the latest TV docudrama, or a full-blown cinematic production, things we know and commonly accept as true and verified comes from the research of then-current reports, as well as the reflective power of our own perspective. The reporting of current events leads inexorably to the commonly accepted version of events in history texts, true and accurate, or not. Throw in a dash of PC revisionism, and you have a recipe for the distortion of historical events of cartoonish proportions.

In a recent court deposition involving one of John Kerry’s fellow VVAW leaders, Kenneth Campbell, one of the first things he disclosed challenges the very heart and soul of the Vietnam anti-war movement past and present, as well as forty years of reporting by the mainstream media which was sympathetic to that movement then, and remains so to this day.

Campbell disclosed that the pre-trial deposition was the first time he had actually been put under oath in over 35 years of “testifying” about Vietnam “war crimes.” Neither he nor any of his fellow “war criminals” – Kerry included – had ever been sworn in at any hearings, not before the Senate, the House of Representatives, or anywhere.*

The recurring question that remains is simply, were Kerry and his fellow VVAW’s actually the Genghis Khan baby killers that they professed to be, or were they simply over-zealous liars.

All of the so-called “testimony” the mainstream media has trumpeted for nearly four decades — graphic, sickening and grisly “testimony” about savage atrocities committed by Vietnam veterans, “testimony” to which Congress and the media gave so much weight and credibility — wasn’t “testimony” at all! Just speeches told without limitation or fear of consequences, least of all penalties for perjury.*

For those who want to defend John Kerry’s “botched joke”, and simply cannot understand the visceral reaction to latest perceived anti-military swipe, to have your world-view challenged is discomforting. I am not trying to make you defensive. I am not writing these words to you at all. It’s not about you.

It is about the hundreds of thousands of men whose honorable service to our nation has been dishonored, and to this day, feel much left out of the mainstream of society, because of the version of history that they know in their heart, and from their experience is a vicious lie. To you, I say, “Gentlemen, it has been a long time coming. Well done. Thank you for your service, and most of all, Welcome Home.”

Kerry Remarks Fail Global Smell Test

Update: Welcome BBC Readers …………………………………………………………..>>return to BBC

Update: “Reporting For Duty”… The Kerry Apology

“Crazy” and “despicable” are the exact terms used by the junior Senator from Massachusetts to describe Republican critics of his self-described ‘botched joke’. If you’ve seen the tape or read the transcript, who are you going to believe, Kerry or your lying eyes?

Kerry then told the students that if they were able to navigate the education system, they could get comfortable jobs – “If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq,” he said to a mixture of laughter and gasps.

That how Cortney Fielding reported it in the Pasadena Star-News. She was there. She saw and heard it as it happened. There is no indication, at all, that this was a joke, nor did the reaction of those in attendance indicate that they were hearing a joke.

So, at least a few of Kerry’s own supporters must be both crazy and despicable. Or not. Maybe the “mixture of laughter and gasps” indicates that there are still a few democrats out there who understand that our bravest serving in the military are the only thing standing between our liberty and the designs of our enemies. It is still a dangerous world. That’s not crazy, that’s reality.

globaltestkit.jpgIn the 2004 campaign, Kerry said that his policy in fighting the War on Terror would be better, smarter, more sensitive, and would pass the global test. No one in the MSM ever got a specific answer to exactly what that meant — and, I don’t recall if he was ever even asked the question. You may recall that Kerry’s response to the ‘global test’ remark sounds eerily familiar to his response to his current situation:

Asked during a town hall meeting in Hampton to explain what he meant, the Massachusetts senator said, “It’s almost sad; it’s certainly pathetic, because all they can do is grab a little phrase and try to play a game and scare Americans.”

Perhaps now, the MSM will use this gaffe as an opportunity to find out what the dems actually propose to do regarding the serious issues of the day, instead of rushing headlong into giving Kerry yet another pass. Call me a dreamer.
