It was requested of Tony that he post the audio of the interview on his web site, so perhaps you can hear it there.
Maybe some cleaver freeper (not me, certainly) who is able can clip the audio. I bet Mark hits it tonight. Republican Red sent it to him last night.
You can keep working on me...but you won't piss me off!
DID YOU SEE THIS!!!!!???
PASS IT ON!
THIS IS THE PLACE THAT SERVES OUR WOUNDED SOLDIERS FROM WALTER REED
The Battle for Fran O'Brien's
This past Friday night I was privileged to visit Fran O'Brien's steakhouse in the Capitol Hilton, Washington, DC. Every Friday night, Hal Koster, the restaurant manager and Vietnam Vet, invites our wounded soldiers convalescing at nearby Walter Reed Army Center to a free steak dinner and drinks. It was supposedly a "slow" night for our heroes as many were on a ski trip in Colorado. But I walked into an absolutely packed room of wounded soldiers and their families enjoying a minor but well-deserved recognition for their service to our country.
I've also discovered since then that the Hilton Corporation will not be renewing the lease. Apparently, there are too many "liability issues" in accommodating American heroes in wheelchairs. In fact , the lease (and therefore the dinners) will expire in a few short weeks. If America had responded as we would in the past, this would be inconsequential really. Obviously we have not and it is a tragic commentary on today's PC-ness.
Please read the attached e-mail with more of the details.

RE: SADDAM DOCUMENTS
THIS IS WHERE YOU CAN FIND THE TRANSLATIONS AS WELL
I got a good chuckle, no worries...
Hopefully all of us here and the New Media can tick off the Liberals and reveal this truth about those documents about Saddams WMDs that the MSM and Liberals seem not to want to talk about or let the public know the truth and that President Bush was RIGHT.
really appreciate your # 36. thanks
You are not going to get banned!
You are doing just fine...
people are just debating it. and there are strong feelings on both sides...
it is what FREEP is all about!!
WE LOVE YOU!
Yep I am with you. I am sending them to everyone I know that is not a FReeper.
Well you never know. Hard to tell who one might be arguing with! ;)
The core of the problem is within Mexico. Once they have a government that is responsible to the people, many would be happy to return home.
We just HAVE to figure out a way to convince the Russkies that a nuclear Iran is NOT to their interests any more than ours. A major source of funding for the Chechnyans and other Muslim extremists along their Southern periphery cannot be a good thing for Putin.
The Russians are just a weaker version of the USSR...I wouldn't consider a trusted ally.
Same here! I am sure that on the Big Things we are on the same side. We're just having a family discussion which in my family tended to be loud.
Even in our disagreement we have common ground. Nothing to pull a lever for a DUmmy over!
nah- you're fine...
I think it was at the CIA's request that the Fitz investigation began.
Oh I absolutely agree. The Russkies have been an opportunistic power for at least 500 years since Catherine the Great. Still, this one would ultimately be worse for them than their alliance with Nazi Germany. I don't think Putin understands how much of his internal problems are funded by the Iranian oil. Unless he's going along as a payoff (e.g., protection). In which case we've got to provide him the protection to prevent this. I saw Lawrence Eagleburger on Fox yesterday. He said if we ever let the Iranians go nuclear we will really regret it for a long time.
Check out the hot babe that Rush is dating NOW.

It is now being reported that the Hilton Chain will not renew O'Brein's lease.
This is an example of penny wise pound foolish thinking. There are 10s of millions in the Support the Troops network. Each of them is getting this email. They will now be actively telling people about Hilton's hostile, elitist attitude. You spend millions advertising. Now 10's of millions will be out there spreading the word to avoid the Hilton chain. Saving a few dollars on Liablity insurance will in no way compensate the business for millions in lost customers. I strongly urge you to seriously rethink this idea.
Rush is about to talk about CNN finally covering Conyers. here's the transcript. I'm loving it!!!
"""Our investigative correspondent Drew Griffin has the startling allegations in a story that first aired on CNN's "PAULA ZAHN NOW."
DREW GRIFFIN, CNN INVESTIGATIVE CORRESPONDENT (voice-over): Sydney Rooks says she had no idea , when she signed up as legal counsel for her boss, she would also be baby-sitting her boss' children, a lawyer required to baby-sit.
SYDNEY ROOKS, FORMER LEGAL ADVISER TO CONGRESSMAN JOHN CONYERS: Several times, he just brought them into my office and said: "Rooks, they're your responsibility for right now. I will be back later."
GRIFFIN (on camera): And how long was later?
ROOKS: Later could be a few minutes. Later could be hours. Later could be frantically calling around, trying to find him, because it was now 8:00 or 9:00, or later in the evening, and not knowing what to do with the children.
GRIFFIN (voice-over): For Deanna Maher, later turned out to be weeks. She says she was actually told to move into her boss' house, this house in Detroit, and be the live-in nanny while he was gone and his wife was away at school.
DEANNA MAHER, FORMER DEPUTY CHIEF OF STAFF FOR CONGRESSMAN JOHN CONYERS: He handed me the keys to his car and his house and said, "Take care of my child, Carl (ph), and everything" -- make sure, in other words, I had to stay at the house and take care of him. And that was for several weeks.
GRIFFIN: She says he left her, never telling her when he would be back, certainly, not that the baby-sitting gig would last six weeks.
(on camera): And this was not just, can you do this for this one time?
ROOKS: No. It was -- it was common. It was ubiquitous. And it wasn't just me. OK? I was the tutor, primarily, but I wasn't the only person who got stuck with the kids for the day. I wasn't the only person who had to take the boys to the bathroom, change a diaper, or anything like that.
We would also take them to doctors' appointments, other things, too. If they had to go, they had to go. Somebody had to take them. And there was no reimbursement for gasoline or anything like that.
GRIFFIN: Did you feel like a servant, like a house servant?
ROOKS: Many times, I frankly did, yes.
GRIFFIN: Why didn't they just complain to the company, report that their boss was making them do things that they thought were unethical, maybe even illegal? Well, they did complain to the company. Take a look at the company.
(voice-over): And who was the boss? This was the boss, 21-term liberal Democratic Congressman John Conyers Jr. of Detroit, the second most senior member of Congress and ranking member of the Judiciary Committee, and who was in no mood last week to talk with us about ethics, his children, and who baby-sits them.
(on camera): Congressman Conyers, Drew Griffin with CNN.
REP. JOHN CONYERS (D), MICHIGAN: Hi, Drew. How are you?
GRIFFIN: I have been trying to meet you for several weeks now to discuss these allegations by your former staff members. Ethics violations.
CONYERS: Oh, just a minute, sir. I've been told not to discuss them because we haven't examined them, and I have an attorney.
GRIFFIN: Well, can I just ask you...
GRIFFIN (voice over): As shocking as the allegations of using his congressional staff as servants is the fact that the allegations have been around for years, that a lot of people on Capitol Hill know all about it. In fact, members of John Conyers' staff filed several complaints with the House Ethics Committee. And CNN learned there was even an investigation launched in 2004 into staff complaints, but that investigation was abruptly stopped.
Melanie Sloan, who once worked for Congressman John Conyers on his Capitol Hill staff, thinks she knows why. She now heads the liberal watchdog group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, a group that mostly criticizes Republicans, but in the case of ethics, she says, neither conservatives nor liberals on Capitol Hill are held accountable.
MELANIE SLOAN, CITIZENS FOR RESPONSIBILITY: That's right. That's because there is an ethics truce. Both parties will deny this, by the way, but there is, in fact, a truce that's been in existence since 1998. And under the terms of that truce, nobody will file a complaint against a member of the other party.
GRIFFIN: The truce, among Democrats and Republicans, Sloan says, is a gentleman's agreement. I won't report you, if you don't report me. Still, according to Sydney Rooks, who was John Conyers' legal adviser after all, the rules as written are very clear, a congressman can't treat his staff as personal servants nor should taxpayers be paying for a congressman's chauffeurs, personal babysitters and errand runners.
When it came to Conyers, staff members said doing errands and babysitters were only the half of it. Conyers, they told CNN, regularly used his congressional staff to work on other politicians' campaigns. Chief among them, the campaign of his very own wife, Detroit City Councilwoman Monica Conyers, a charge Monica Conyers' spokesman says is just a lie.
SAM RIDDLE, SPOKESMAN FOR MONICA CONYERS: City Council President Pro-Tem Monica Conyers certainly denies that any of the congressman's staff helped her with her campaign. It simply didn't happen. These are disgruntled employees who couldn't cut it in the workplace.
GRIFFIN: Rooks says it not only happened, she complained directly to the congressman about it.
ROOKS: I was so opposed to the use of staff time for campaigning, I actually wrote the Congressman a memo, which I don't have anymore, but I also had a conversation with him. And I told him I thought this was wrong.
GRIFFIN (on-camera): When you complained, when you brought up these issues, you were told this is part of your job.
ROOKS: Well, I was told that doing whatever he wanted to have done was part of my job.
GRIFFIN (voice over): And, she says, she received regular raises, was assigned sensitive projects and, like others now filing complaints, was told she was doing a good job for the congressman.
After several weeks of phoning, faxing and mailing requests for an interview, including to his attorney, and being told by Conyers' staff that the congressman wasn't available, we decided to look for him ourselves and found him right outside a Capitol Hill committee room.
GRIFFIN (on-camera): You have required your staff members to babysit your children?
CONYERS: No, no, look. Did I...
GRIFFIN: Does that mean you have not?
GRIFFIN: May I say, I told you I could not discuss it. Now, this is not fair.
GRIFFIN: I just asked a yes or no question. Have you required your staff to babysit your children and at one point, babysit your children for six weeks?
CONYERS: Oh, come on.
GRIFFINS: That's what the allegation is in the ethics files, sir.
CONYERS: Can you do me a favor, sir? I thought you were going to...
GRIFFIN: I've been trying to talk to you through your staff for two weeks, sir.
(voice-over): Though rare, the House Ethics Committee does have the power to vote on starting an ethics investigation against members of Congress. In the case of John Conyers, that has not yet happened.
Drew Griffin, CNN, Washington.
Yes and that would be great, all I am saying is that is dealing with what we'd like to have as real as opposed to what is real.
Last night I was watching a show about Darwinists vs. Intelligent Design Christians in the first court challenge they cherry-picked a town in Tennessee...the DUmocrat playbook hasn't changed in 150 years!
I didn't know that the ACLU commies had been around since early 1900s! They've always been trying to undermine the founders intent.
Absolutely...(I reserve the right to vote for Zell Miller if he'd ever get the nomination).
Dream big....you can make big dreams happen. Many are putting blinders on to what COULD BE, and only concerned about hear and now rather than 20 years from now. We see how well the amnesty idea worked in the 80's....
The Socialist/Communist movement got it's impetus and have been pushing the DUmmies since at least the 1880s and William Jennings Bryan. They never got a great foothold here until WW I but they've been around. There was a LOT of Socialist support for Woodrow Wilson and even Theodore Roosevelt (because of trust busting).
oops...HERE and now. (must use spellcheck)!
ditto for me!
re: jveritas and the Iraqi documents
If you have the Fox news radio link they repeat the show... I think he should be on around 1 p.m. thereabouts.
Listen Live link.
I missed him earlier, so I will let you know when he comes on also.
Way to go RR. I am following you with my own emails. Maybe if they see Jveritas name enough they will get on this story!
William Jennings Bryan gave the "Cross of Gold" speech, yet it was Nixon who took America off the gold standard.
Dream? I would like to keep us secure, keep people from starving in our streets, keep folks from being subjected to the ever changing whims of despots. Yes I do dream. If and I am not sure how, maybe we need to pray that the next President of Mexico wants his people to stay home and then makes it possible for them to do so.
It's all in his mind,lol!!
That is a sad truth. Nixon was a brilliant foreign policy tactician but a lousy economist. Between that and wage and price controls which led inevitably to the Carter recession/inflation it's hard to justify Nixon's domestic policy. His foreign policy was inspired and he and Kissinger were masters of it.
People don't starve in the streets unless they want to. This is the only generous nation in the world. Name any other country that feeds the world.
Johnnie obviously has GREAT sway over eeevil!
Boxer makes my ears bleed.
Presidents of Mexico have been promising their people this for 150 years. Some how no matter who wins, it never happens.
Isn't Rational Democrat an oxymoron?
