Posted on 02/22/2006 5:48:52 AM PST by saveliberty
Tony Snow is back and better than ever! Tony's guests and topics on today's Tony Snow Show include:
Sensible People Object
What does it mean when sensible politicians like Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN), Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA), and Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) object to the port deal? Tony takes a close look.
Bush Comes Down Hard
The President came out strong on the port issue, saying he would veto any legislation to block the port deal. The President's protected us before; should we trust him this time?
So What's Really Going On at the Ports?
Intrepid reporter Griff Jenkins went on a tour of the Port of Baltimore, one of the ports slated to have its operations transferred to Dubai Ports World, to find out exactly what goes on there.

In the mid-1950s, General Motors displayed more at their auto shows than just cars. At one show in Miami, GM featured a display of a million one-dollar bills, as well as the Hope Diamond (the largest blue diamond in the world).
One afternoon a thunderstorm came through the city, lightning flashed, and the lights went out. Immediately truckdrivers with their flashlights rushed to the special display and formed a circle around the armed guards who were already there. The diamond and the cash were now safely guarded with two levels of security.
In John 10, Jesus described the security of His people: "I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand" (v.28). When we know Jesus as Savior, we're secure in His hands; we cannot lose our salvation. But there's another level of security. Jesus continued, "My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father's hand" (v.29).
The Hope Diamond and the large sum of cash were quite safe with their two levels of security. How much more are we eternally safe in the hands of Jesus and His Father, the Almighty God! Anne Cetas
Christ's work makes us safe; God's Word makes us sure.
Interesting bit of information from Fox & Friends this morning.
Brian Kilmeade reports that there was no opposition to the Port plan until Chuckie Schumer came on their show (and knowing Chuckie, every other show that would have him)last week and commented on the sale of the ports.
This all happen in November.
Chuckie really hit pay dirt on this one. It would be interesting to track the time line on this one.
Oh and this phrase may sound familiar but, "HE PLAYED ON OUR FEAR."
On the blessed port issue, something you might be interested in from Rich Galens Mullings website: http://www.mullings.com
This is a VERY important issue, but I hope you're going to talk about NEW facts. Otherwise, it's just a giant PR mess, even though we need to be doing it. I hope you can get someone like Don Rumsfeld or Steven Hadley on to talk about it.
Bush yesterday said he was conducting foreign policy with the UAE deal. Can someone please explain to the President that we have had quite enough of this nonsense. Open borders and now this debacle are glaring reminders that the President doesn't take border security seriously, and it will now include our port systems as well. DUMB!!
thanks for the ping.... I am here working hard.... on sono made...
(oy- I cannot believe I am now guilty of the sono mode)
Do you by chance have an extra suit my FRiend?
Waiting to see who won the lottery -- sounds like 8 guys from Con Agra Plant in Lincoln.
HMMM -- Lincoln, Ne birthplace of Dick Cheney. Is there something he isn't telling us??
Maybe some long lost distant relative?? Do they live on Old Cheney Road????
Maybe one of them will adopt me
And how do we know that some other competitor and/or foreign government interest is using the MSM and some of our pols to stick it to DPW?
I think we need to know a lot more about any other choices before we dump the baby out with the bath water. Who knows, the alternatives could make DPW look good...
I generally agree, but I gave Brenna 5 votes just go give her another chance. She was pretty nervous last night and if she gets it together she might be good. My wife and I are preliminary sold on Becky...
LOL! .. I was just thinking of when Gore screamed that
Good morning, everyone. Let it Snow!!!
Anybody got sound on the Fox link yet? I'm silent, got pix, no sounds......
LOL. I need one of those suites.
I'm not hearing anything....grrrrrr
DUMB is as DUMB does. You need some edjumacashun. Try listening to Tony's show for some enlightenment.
I think Dubya just cooked up the port thing to get Dead-Eye Dick off the front pages.
Is anyone else getting their Fox feed? I am hearing nothing.
Dead air on my end. Ruh roh.
me neither...guess I'll switch to the radio station online...??
rp, we can't hear you.
Becky? She's HOT...a 10 like Simon said. But her voice will not carry her.
I agree. I feel like I am watching a mob. No one wants to stop and ask intelligent questions, just rant.
WKRC is working.
This morning on Fox and Friends, Senator Mendendez of New Jersey said that maybe we should "incentivize" the company that runs the New Jersey port operation. Can you see him brining that pork home to N.J.?
Who Runs Dubai? Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum. He's a poet as well. Please read his lovely poem:
Example, his poem on the death of the Palestinian boy, Mohammed al Dura:
To the soul of the child martyr, Mohammed Al Durra
Pressed back, without supporter
A child defenceless, confronting aggression
Hiding, the bullets of tyrants
Have no mercy for a child, so young
Seeking shelter, slaughter him the criminals
Savages, whose tyranny never waned
Oh Mohammed, in Paradise of the eternal
Oh Mohammed, your voice reverberates throughout
Oh Mohammed, with you, the God of the Worlds
Whose mercy enfolds you forever
Oh Mohammed, who saw you grieved
And all, if we could, would sacrifice
A thousand million, the Muslims
All for you, Mohammed, fathers
Alas, where is the peace of the just?
The peace you seek is futile
Lost it, without doubt, the usurpers
When allowed their hatred to renew
And boiled the blood of Arabs, East and West
When Sharon visited the mosque
Oh Arabs, comrades for years
Bury that which passed, as became
Our greatest concern, to defend against aggressors
Who against Al Aqsa their aggression began
My nation, would that you unite
In lines, terrified then the enemies
Follow Zayed, the leader of the wise
Who called for unity and initiated
Oh Saladin, oh the greatest conquerors
Oh Omar, oh the dignified and the generous
The state of the nation allures the greedy
We seek naught but unity to satisfy
No sound here....
It worked fine when I tested it 10 minutes ago...
curse jar curse jar curse jar
I just want facts. I don't like the DUmmies taking our Right flank; I'm more than a little sad that the press operation out of the WH didn't prepare this (see the piece I posted from Rich Galen's mullings.com) in which he quotes the late H.R. Haldeman as saying 'T-L squared' Which was his shorthand for saying "too little too late". I am appalled that this deal -- which I really know will not harm American security -- and which I believe is being done essentially because the Government of the UAE (regardless of what we all think of some of their crazy inhabitants) has done good things for US forces. I don't believe Donald Rumsfeld at his age would put the US in danger. If it was a threat to security he'd have blocked it. But I don't know if this firestorm can be contained.
I am now on WKRC - got sound.
I wasn't getting it, so I switched to WKRC.
Well...lets see...Bush, Tony, Rush and now you....that makes 4 who support the dobbers.....you are making headway.(grin)
Well, I'd like to know who they think is going to do the port support if DPW's nixed and there's not a better alternative. Elves?
That is always possible. They would not have to be in the Middle East for that to happen.
Actually, just the opposite.
Cheney shot his friend to cover for some things he and W cooked up and tried to slide by the ever vigilant mainstream press. Unfortunately, the cover didn't last quite long enough and now W and the Evil Dick have been "caught again".
Okay, I am glad I saw your post before throwing my computer across the room. Switching now! GRRRRR!
What would keep them fro kidnapping the current management? Do you think kidnappers only operate in the Middle East?
Senator Feinstein said that ports should be "governmentally operated"
whatever that means. Is she talking about employment, ethics or efficiency?
If we let the Feds run the ports, the slowdown and inefficiency will help our end of the trade deficit.
I think the lottery winner from Lincoln must be a long lost relative of Cheney's --- the deal was rigged!!!
Sorry SR....it's just not working. It'll be back...you're the best!
