Skip to comments.AMERICA - The Right Way!! (Day 1676) [Remember the Trade Center!!]

We will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail!
Do not let the victims of the attacks on New York and Washington, nor the brave members of our Nation's military who have given their lives to protect our freedom, die in vain!!
A scientist that was on a Presidential panel looking into global warming quit because he said too many of the members preparing the report were wedded to the notion of human-induced climate change without looking into the science of the matter.
The "You Don't Speak for Me Cindy" caravan continues through California. Ultimately, it will head to Crawford, TX.
Though the Pentagon says there is no evidence Atta was named as the 9/11 attack leader before the attack, a second officer has come forward to challenge that assertion.
For AMERICA - The Right Way, I remain yours in the Cause, the Chairman.
Good morning all!
Thanks for the start, as always....yes, a second officer has come forward in the 9/11 affair...

Able Danger: Did they ID Atta Before He got Here Captain's Quarters blog
Why Gaza? Why Now? Mark Steyn
Sure wish we'd get some of your rain. We can't even get a sprinkle here.
Somehow I believe two military officers about Able Danger, especially considering that the National Geographic special on 9/11 had information about Able Danger.
I did not watch the special, but from what I have read here, I have to agree.
Good morning, everyone! Today is a babysitting day, so I am off to see my granddaughter. I will check in later this morning.
"Its a whole lot cheaper than starting a war ... and I dont think any oil shipments will stop. he said.
Good Morning Chair. Thank you for getting us started again today.
The heat wave has broken and taken the humidity with it. It feels like fall out there this morning.
You can have some of our lovely Georgia summer weather, if you'd like...
That is, if you enjoy alternating between 95F/100% humidity and severe thunderstorms...
Hey, my sister is rooting for the White Sox - like I USED to do - & we're getting along just fine!
Here's the link to the site which offers it for sale, in case anyone missed it...
We taped it both nights to watch soon!!
Ahhh. An early-morning Steyn and Pruden. Life is starting out good today! Thanks, Molly!
The temperatures are the same as here, but without the severe storms. The weatherman says our heat index will reach 105-107 today.
LOL, just copied and pasted these.
wonder how those out of state people are taking the heat in Crawford? It's suppose to be 100 up there today. Hope they like the heat!
I hope they don't.
They came back on a few moments ago. This is getting old...fast!!
I didn't know that you were an actor....which one was you? LOL!
Nothing is more frustrating than paying for cable and highspeed internet and not having access to either of them. Grrrrrrr.
How is your weather?
Those were funny, but nothing like the fellow in the Barbershop!
Sun's up now, but rain is forecast for today and tomorrow. I mowed yesterday...thank goodness, so when it does rain I'll be using the FloorMate on my floors....daughter, grandson, and friend are coming Thursday for daughter's birthday supper. Can you believe that they REQUESTED that I have meatloaf and creamed potatoes?! I'm adding broccoli w/cheese sauce, corn, deviled eggs, and hot rolls to that menu! No cake but maybe a lemonade pie w/1 candle (to grow on...LOL).
Won't be here much today, at least not until evening. Lots of teaching
Have a great day everybody!!!
>>which one was you? LOL!
I see that there is more news on Able Danger today. Good!
Beautiful day here...sunny, almost clear, and in the 70's. I am going to take my granddaughter for a walk in a little while.
Your birthday menu sounds delicious!!
Banner on FNC says that Rumsfeld claims the 9/11 Commission was informed about Able Danger.
Yup. Rumsfeld on FNC now. Don't know if he discussed it but assuming he did because the banner was huge under the FNC News Alert.
Get a live thread going...
Thread is here; press conference is over. Let's see if other freepers heard the entire press conference.

The republic of Iraq is an independent sovereign state with a system of government that is republican, parliamentary, democratic and federal.
Islam is the official religion of the state, and it is a main source for legislation. No law can be passed that contradicts the fixed principles of Islam's rulings. No law can be passed that contradicts the principles of democracy. No law can be passed that contradicts basic rights and freedoms mentioned in this constitution.
This constitution guarantees the Islamic identity of the majority of the Iraqi people, as well as complete religious rights for all individuals to freedom of beliefs and religious practice.
Iraq is a multi-ethnic and multi-religious country and it is part of the Islamic world, and the Arab people in it are part of the Arab nation.
The Arabic language and Kurdish language are the two official languages of Iraq, and the right of Iraqis to educate their children in mother tongues such as Turkmen and Syriac in government teaching establishments ... or any other language in private institutions is guaranteed.
Federal institutions and bodies in the Kurdistan region will use the two languages.
The law has sovereignty, the people are the source of authorities and their legitimacy, and they practise this via direct secret ballot and their constitutional institutions.
Rotation of power is practiced peacefully via the democratic institutions outlined in this constitution.
All bodies or practices are forbidden which use racism, terrorism, denouncing people as non-Muslim, sectarian cleansing or which incite, prepare, praise, promote or justify them, in particular the Saddamist Baath party in Iraq under any name, which cannot be part of political pluralism in Iraq, and this will be organised by law.
The state will combat terrorism in all its forms and act to protect its borders from being used for terrorist activity.
Iraqi armed forces and security forces will be made up of all components of the Iraqi people without discrimation or marginalisation...
Military militias cannot be formed outside the framework of the armed forces.
The Iraqi government respects and implements Iraq's international commitments preventing the spread, development, production and use of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons...
It is not allowed to detain or hold someone for questioning without a court order. All forms of physical or bodily torture or inhuman treatment are banned...
Parliament will sit for four years ... elections for a new parliament will be held 45 days before the end of the current session.
Oil and gas are the property of all the Iraqi people in all regions and provinces.
The federal government manages oil and gas from current fields with the governments of the producing regions and provinces, and the resources should be distributed in a fair manner appropriate to the population balance around the entire country, with specific temporary allocations for regions damaged and unfairly neglected under the previous regime...
Federal government and governments of producing regions and provinces will together draw the necessary strategic policies to develop oil and gas wealth for the good of the Iraqi people...
A legislative Federal Assembly comprising representatives of regions and provinces for viewing draft laws concerned with regions and provinces. Law will organise its formation.
I pray this works...in time.
Thanks for posting that. Seems quite reasonable for a first attempt.
I "CAN" complain about the weather now, given that we're haviing record breaking heat!
Send all your rain here please.
Don't do it Toby!!! That woman is a NUT case! You don't need a crazy hen!
I just saw her on TV - she went to the ditch where Cindy is/was living and made ridiculous remarks.
I am beginning to believe that LIBERALISM should be classified as a medical condition, along with the other mental disorders already on record.
Good afternoon! I'm here for a brief posting. The youngest worked for her generous grandfather this summer and with her earnings just bought a computer complete w/ printer! I'm setting it up for her and while setups are running I'm just checking in.
Cool....so is she going to let you play with it...:-)
As over the top Michael Savage can be...he named his book right..."Liberalism is a Mental Disorder."
An Ergon boat pushes barges up the Mississippi River Friday as the river's level falls below sandbars near the mouth of the Yazoo Diversion Canal. The river stage at Vicksburg was 1.9 feet, 41.3 feet below flood stage. The river has dropped steadily throughout the summer and was expected to continue at low stages until rain in the basin begins in the fall. Over the past several weeks, the lower water levels have affected some river traffic going into the canal, and the vessels of the Delta Queen Steamboat Company, which normally dock at City Front, have been forced tie up at LeTourneau Landing. In addition, fishermen and boaters who routinely use all of City Front for launching their craft, have had only only a ramp that extends into the mud. (Brian Loden The Vicksburg Post)
Our rivers are much lower this year, too.
