Please check out Phsstpok’s EXCELLENT Sunday Talk Show PRE-Thread. It’s a great way to hear analysis on why the DBM picks the guests, what they’ll probably discuss, and other pertinent facts. Also, check out his blog!

Thanks AB & Good Morning to EveryOne! Congrats to last week's topsters!

Clintonhris Wallace was on Cavuto's show bragging about Hillary's "overwhelming" support among "hispanics" and he predicted a Hillary-landslide among them in elections.

Just one problem - More than half of Americans, 52% won't vote for Hillary Clinton according to a new national poll by Mason-Dixon.

Poor Wallace.

There’s another problem too, anita. It’s totally untrue— there is not a monolithic Hispanic vote, as demonstrated by the attached by Fausta Wertz. She links to her Pajamas Media article and it’s worth it to follow the links.

Couple of interesting things to note. Did you know our “Journalists” lump Iraqi Police/Military casualties in with Iraqi Civilian deaths?

After reading the below did you know US Military casualties were down almost 20% in June after peaking in April and May?

Of course not. Why? Because the Democrat noise machine pretending to be "Journalists" merely change the way they report the casualties figures to give a false perception. So when monthly causalities totals go down, they change to reporting quarterly casualty counts rather then report the decrease. Then if casualities go up in July, they will go back to reporting monthly totals. The decisive factor in which factoid they decide to use is which will paint the bleakest picutre of the situation in Iraq. The more you watch the US "News" media in action, the more you come to realize they are propaganidsts, not Journalists. This link gives you the raw casualties data.

Civilian deaths decreasing (In Iraq)

CentralDaily.com ^ | 07-01-07 | By Mike Drummond

Posted on 07/01/2007 4:49:30 AM CDT by MNJohnnie

BAGHDAD — Iraqi civilian deaths in Baghdad dropped significantly in June, a possible indication that recent American military operations around the country and raids on car-bomb shops in the “belts” ringing the capital are starting to pay off.

But June also marked the end of the bloodiest quarter for U.S. troops since the war began in March 2003.

BAGHDAD — Iraqi civilian deaths in Baghdad dropped significantly in June, a possible indication that recent American military operations around the country and raids on car-bomb shops in the “belts” ringing the capital are starting to pay off.

But June also marked the end of the bloodiest quarter for U.S. troops since the war began in March 2003.

Unofficial figures compiled by McClatchy Newspapers’ show 189 Iraqis, including police and government security forces, were killed in the capital through Friday, a drop of almost two thirds since this year’s high in February, when 520 were killed. The average monthly death toll of Iraqis in Baghdad was 410 from December through May.

The downturn in civilian deaths in Baghdad, should the figures hold, could arm Lt. Gen. David Petraeus, the top U.S. military commander in Iraq, with the kind of results he needs to forestall pressure to set timetables on troop withdrawals. He is scheduled to deliver a progress report on the war to Congress in September.

Securing the capital remains the U.S. military’s top priority.

The trade-off for the decline in civilian deaths in Baghdad may be high U.S. casualties. The Web site icasualties.org tallied 101 U.S. soldiers killed in June, one of the deadliest months in Iraq for American forces. This raised to 330 the number of U.S. troops killed in the past three months.

The U.S. military, having added 28,500 additional forces, are now at full “surge” strength of 150,000 and are engaged in high-profile military campaigns to pacify the country.

U.S. commanders warn a higher body count is in the offing, as forces step up fighting this summer. Forty-four of the U.S. casualties in June occurred in Baghdad, caused mostly by roadside bombs — five of them Thursday in an attack involving a roadside bomb, gunfire and grenades in Baghdad’s southern Rasheed district. Seven soldiers were wounded, the military said.

But the same U.S.-led surge that is taking the fight to insurgents in Iraq is apparently still placing civilians in the crossfire.

At least 22 Iraqi citizens have died, mostly outside the capital, during U.S. clashes with Sunni insurgents and Shiite militia during the past eight days, according to Iraqi police reports. The U.S. military does not disclose the numbers of Iraqi civilians killed by American troops, despite repeated requests from McClatchy.

Civilian deaths seemingly are inevitable in urban guerilla warfare that pits U.S. forces against fighters who live among the population. U.S. military officials say they are sensitive to potential backlash that could enflame anti-American opposition here.

But civilian deaths occur. U.S. military officials said two pre-dawn raids Saturday in Shiite-dominated Sadr City in eastern Baghdad killed 26 “terrorists” and captured 17 fighters with links to Iran. U.S. forces said they opened fire on fighters detonating roadside bombs or firing guns and rocket-propelled grenades from buildings and from behind parked cars.

No U.S. casualties were reported.

U.S. forces “were in the middle of multisided firefight engaging enemy fighters,” in Sadr City, said U.S. Army spokesman Lt. Col. Christopher Garver. “We saw no evidence of any civilian casualties.”

Iraqi police, however, reported late Saturday that four Iraqi civilians were killed, and six injured during the American-led attack.

Sadr City is the sprawling stronghold of anti-American Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, where residents widely regard his Mahdi Army militiamen as freedom fighters.

Iraq Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, who has openly criticized the U.S. military for previous civilian deaths, demanded an explanation of the Sadr City attacks. He also said U.S. and Iraqi forces need to seek the government’s permission to launch raids in Baghdad.

Garver said U.S. forces attacked because the targets were members of a “secret cell network” linked to Iran, “not because of their affiliation with a militia or whatever.”

It’ll be interesting to see how much time Russert spends asking Leahy about the terrorist threat in the UK since the only reason he was booked was to bash Cheney and the White House.

It is still a long way to the general election.

On any given day by the evening network news cycle, any candidate could have a deaniac scream or macaca moment that ends his/her political career.

Just yesterday Hillary was attacking Fred Thompson over some comment related to Castro’s terrorists.

It is only July. It is going to be a long election year (and a half).

FACE THE NATION (CBS): Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Media.

FACE THE MILITARY & SOLDIERS, Mr.Lugar.

Iraq's June civilian death toll down sharply.

We have heroes like this and this

and then RINOS like Richard Lugar & Voinivich. Shameful.

It would also be interesting to see if Russert asks him about his previous leak of classified material and then his subsequent removal from the intelligence committee.

I think Leahy would borrow a line from Mark McGwire and tell Tim that, “I’m not here to talk about the past.”

Great post John, a little follow up as well, here:

http://frontpagemagazine.com/

Seems the surge is just getting underway and it may well have been designed much better than anyone thought, though the writer Frederick W. Kagan admits it may not be a slam dunk, it does bode very promising. All those who have poo-pooed the surge in the past may well have to eat their words.
I consider this piece a must read.

After watching and listening to our Senate the last couple of weeks, I had a thought. Is there any way we can demand mandatory, random drug and alcohol testing of this gang and their allies in the House? I mean, let’s face it, these people don’t seem to live in the same reality that we do.

1. There is no proof that this was terrorism. With Blair gone, there IS no more terrorism in the UK. This was obviously just someone's car, probably belonging to a nail salesman, who kept a lot of samples in his car. He was on his way to a barbecue, of course, which explains the propane. And he needed the extra gas, too, because - hello! - he was driving a gas-guzzler (instead of a hybrid, which is really mean-spirited). So in effect, this was some right-wing, global warming-enabling carpenter on his way to char little animals for his own gratification.

LOL!

IMHO the attacks in Scotland and the UK both point to just how important border security really is. They also point to how Willy nilly immigration policies can easily come back to bite many countries on the butt time after time!! When will Sweden, the UK, and the US to name just a few get it. After all Jack Bauer can do only so much and Bruce Willis is not getting any younger(anybody see Live Free or Die Hard-it was awesome!)

As a Brit I find it almost obscene this long drawn out election it cannot be helpful to the actual running of government with everyone watching what they say or do because of the 2008 elections.

We thought our last campaign in the UK was a long one when it was approximately 6 weeks I cannot imagine a year and a half.
