Then stop responding to me. But as long as you did again. Protecting our borders is as important a security risk as there has ever been. Do you have any idea how many Americans have been murdered at the hands of illegal aliens? Rapes? Child rapes and molestations? Robberies? And on and on it goes. And you think that has nothing to do with terror?

Don't respond and that will be the end of it. However.....

He is a man who needed applause for something right now and judging by the reaction he just got I pray he will take more of a fight to the scumbags who have helped destroy his presidency.

CNN: Bush speaking beore Conservative think tank

I was listening to Bush's speech today at the 'Heritage Foundation', but divisive CNN knew very well how to make sure [in their titling of: speaking before a conservative think tank] that Bush's war on terror is not collective?, Are liberals' lives not at stakes at the Islamofascists' was on the 'infidels'?

It seems that today, "Conservative" is a "bad word" in liberal dominated media.

We are on the offensive on every front. We will not stop, quit or retreat until this threat to civilization has been removed.

As long as we stay on the offense, they will be on the defense. Al Qaeda is being eradicated throughout the middle east. They are on the decline

Love to hear him talk like this!

They have not destroyed his presidency. The only one who can do that is the president himself (witness Clinton)

This president is a man in the truest sense of the word. He has conviction and purpose and unlike the average and greater majority of politicians is not swayed from them by public sentiment ginned up by biased polls. Clearly he is fighting for this country’s very existence and despite the pathetic power mongers on the left he will see his plan through until he leaves the job. It is his leadership that so infuriates the media and the spineless on the left because they see in him someone they could never hope to be, a principled and totally dedicated individual.

His legacy will not be written for many years yet and I have no doubt as to how good it will be. Compare this to what that of the former president is shaping up to be.

Why are foreign wars the only things Bush comprehends when it comes to fighting terror? Why isn’t he announcing new proposals to secure the borders, and denouncing Elliot Spitzer for attempting to subvert American security? I agree with him on Iraq, with the exception of the degree of force (we have been far too gentle), but it seems to me he has little clue when it comes to the homefront.

President Bush has given many excellent speeches throughout his presidency which echo these themes today.

Paleo conservatives and liberals commonly bemoan his lack of legitimate rhetoric. These claims are demonstrably false.

President Bush has done an awesome job on the WOT. It is ridiculous that those of us who support the President are subject to left right radical bashing.

Islamofascism does seek to kill both Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich. Freedom of speech makes it necessary that we suffer their rhetoric as if it is reasonable. Withdrawal and isolation are at best slow suicide strategies.

I find the “finally he speaks out” meme intriguing.

He has consistently said these things, but paleos and anti war radicals deny it for various reasons.

Thank you President Bush for your awesome leadership.

I said “helped”. I am well aware of the damage this man has done to himself by being silent, spending too much, never using his veto pen, illegal immigration etc...but the world view has been tainted not by his actions per-say but by those who have spent nearly a billion dollars since he took office trashing him and making him into the next Hitler.

Code Pink and MoveOn.org are threats to national security and it is about time he called them out by name.

I wonder if this was announced in advance. I would have loved to be there to hear the president. I have not agreed with him on every issue but I have admired his tenacity and willingness to continue to fight the enemy even if it has brought him tremendous scorn. I expect to make the trip to DC for the Veterans Day ceremony at Arlington Cemetery next week in the hope that GWB will speak, though there is no guarantee he will be there. Any other FR members going to attend? I went in 2005 when VP Cheney spoke and it was a great event.

I agree in spades! Seemingly, some are so juvenile that they have to spam every thread with their favorite causes, and it really is out of place and EXTREMELY tiresome.

The government must be doing something right because we have not been attacked on our soil since 9/11. That is huge because al Qaeda would attack us if they could.

First off, AQ plans it's major operations over a period of several years and when they do launch it's usually in a series of four or five in sequence just like Sept. 11th. There is ample evidence that planning for the Sept 11th attacks began in 1994 after their first failed attempt.

Also I differentiate between the government and the administration. Politicians spin events to make themselves look good. But it's the Jack Bauers of our intelligence and special ops communities that truly are the heroes who keep us safe. If they feel torture is necessary to prevent an attack, I say God Bless 'Em! Everynight before they go to bed, the terrorists check their closets to make sure Jack Bauer and Chuck Norris aren't present.

President Bush met with President Joseph Kabila of the Democratic Republic of the Congo this morning in the Oval Office. (Transcript)

Later, in the White House Roosevelt Room, President Bush again urged Democrats to stop dragging their feet and send him an appropriations bill:

“October the 26th is the latest date in 20 years that Congress has failed to get a single annual appropriations bill to the President’s desk.”

The president also spoke about the overall incompetence of this Congress, mentioning their continued efforts to expand SCHIP (the House has passed a second and even more expensive bill than the one President Bush just vetoed), the stalled confirmation of Michael Mukasey as the next Attorney General, as well as Congressman Rangel’s plan to raise taxes by trillions.

This morning President Bush spoke to business owners at the 2007 Grocery Manufacturers Association/Food Products Association Fall Conference in Washington.

“One of the reasons I’ve come by is to remind you how important you are to our economy… my philosophy is,I don’t believe the role of government is to try to create wealth. It’s to create the environment in which people are willing to risk capital, to expand their businesses”(Transcript)

The president again took this opportunity to urge Congress to “stop playing politics” and get back to work. The pressure seems to be working: Democrats have finally scheduled a confirmation vote for Attorney General nominee Michael Mukasey next Tuesday, November 6. (He was nominated in September.)

Open Borders in Dangerous Times
an article by Mark Silverberg

With all our attention focused on the millions of illegal, undocumented Mexican immigrants pouring over our southern border each year, we have paid scant attention to those who have chosen to hide in their midst; those who seek entry into the U.S. not to pursue the American dream…….but to destroy it.

FBI Director Robert Mueller, in a House Appropriations Committee hearing on March 9, 2005 said he was aware that individuals from countries with known Al Qaeda ties had entered the U.S. under false identities. The matter concerned former Homeland Security Deputy Secretary James Loy enough that at one point, he wrote: "Recent information from ongoing investigations, detentions and emerging threat streams strongly suggest that al Qaeda has considered using the Southwest border to infiltrate the United States. Several al Qaeda leaders believe operatives can pay their way into the country through Mexico, and also believe illegal entry is more advantageous than legal entry for operational security reasons." In other words, the less we know about them and their entry into this country, the more dangerous they become.

So, when the 9/11 Commission Report notes that Lebanese nationals sympathetic to Hamas and Hizbollah have been smuggled into the United States with the assistance of "corrupt Mexican officials in Beirut, Mexico City and Tijuana to facilitate their travel"; when, in November 2005, Rep. Sue Myrick (R-N.C.) tells the Charlotte Observer that three al Qaeda terrorists had been captured at the U.S.-Mexico border; when evidence surfaces that former al Qaeda operations chief Khalid Sheikh Mohammed encouraged aspiring "dirty bomber" Jose Padilla to enter the United States by way of Mexico in order to carry out attacks on U.S. targets; when the Washington Times reports that al Qaeda has allied itself with organized Mexican crime groups (such as the notorious Mara Salvatrucha gang, also commonly known as 'MS-13') to facilitate the entry of al Qaeda operatives into the United States via Mexico; when American intelligence confirms a growing al Qaeda-Hezbollah interest in the Arab communities of the tri-border area of central South America (a lawless, crime-ridden area where Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay intersect) as a staging ground for future attacks on American soil; when the Brownsville Herald reports that persons with possible terrorist ties have been captured just after entering the U.S. from Mexico but are being released into the American interior due to lack of detention space at the border; when a Los Angeles radio station reports that Middle Eastern men with al Qaeda links are adopting Hispanic names, acquiring fake Mexican ID cards and are mixing with the stream of illegals coming across our southern border;

1 when KGBT-TV in Harlingen, TX catches Border Patrol agents dropping off a van load of illegal immigrants at a local bus station; when the Tombstone Tumbleweed (June 13, 2004) reports that American border patrol agents arrested one hundred and fifty-eight illegal aliens in Cochise County, Arizona, fifty-three of whom were overheard speaking Farsi (Iranian) and Arabic in the back of the detention vehicle;

2 when Colorado Congressman Tom Tancredo releases a report revealing that some illegals from terrorist nations are paying as much as $50,000 to be smuggled into the U.S. and notes that "they're not paying that kind of money simply to work at a 7/11"; and when bin Laden's biographer Hamid Mir writes that several tactical nuclear weapons and enough uranium to build others have already been smuggled over the U.S.-Mexican border for the purpose of launching catastrophic radiological attacks in our major cities……there are significant danger signals emanating from our southern border that America has more to be concerned about than the economic ramifications of Mexican illegals seeking a better life for themselves.

Based upon al Qaeda documents seized by British MI-6 intelligence during recent raids in Pakistan, it is now known that al Qaeda has established strong South American links with the Colombian terror group FARC, the Shining Path in Peru, thousands of Muslim students in the Dominican Republic, the Hugo Chavez government in Venezuela and with Mexico's Popular Revolutionary Army (EPR). The documents reveal that al Qaeda sees these groups as facilitating the entry of al Qaeda operatives into the United States through the porous Mexican border.

The Venezuela terrorist connection is especially disturbing. The Washington Times recently quoted Thomas A. Shannon, assistant secretary of state for Western Hemisphere affairs that "Cuban intelligence has effectively cloned itself inside Venezuelan intelligence" and that the Chavez government is providing shelter for organizations with ties to unspecified "terrorist organizations in the Middle East" notably Hezbollah.

3 Venezuelan identity cards are also being distributed to foreigners from Middle Eastern nations, specifically Syria, Pakistan, Egypt, and Lebanon - cards that are then used to obtain legal travel documents and passports to the U.S.

In the post 9/11 world, these events represent significant warning signals. According to former FBI consultant Paul L. Williams, thousands of al Qaeda agents have already infiltrated the U.S. over the Mexican border with the mission of carrying out what he terms the "American Hiroshima" plan.

4 These "sleepers" were provided with phony identifications (mostly bogus matricula consular ID cards that are indistinguishable from Mexico's official ID cards and are accepted in the U.S. to open bank accounts and obtain driver's licenses). Bin Laden's goal, according to Williams, is to kill at least four million Americans, two million of whom must be children. Only then, (bin Laden says) would the crimes committed by America on the Arab and Muslim world be avenged. Thus, the issue of illegal immigration across the U.S.-Mexican border is as much if not more a national security threat than an economic one.

For years, a dangerous loophole has existed in our border security system - one that separates "illegals" into two groups - those who are automatically turned back at the border, and those from countries other than Mexico who are allowed into the U.S. pending deportation hearings. These "other than Mexicans" (OTMs) come primarily from other Latin American countries although an undetermined number come from countries designated by our government as countries of "Special Interest (SI)" because of their known al Qaeda presence - countries that include Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Egypt, Pakistan, Yemen, Qatar, Algeria, Somalia and Malaysia.

5 According to reports issued by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and a September 2005 Congressional Report, the numbers of OTMs released on their own recognizance in this country for fiscal years 2002 (5,775) and 2003 (9,139) was far surpassed in 2004 when 32,782 were released pending their hearings. In 2005, another 63,494 were released and these figures are considered low.

6 Although the number of known Special Interest (SI) OTMs entering the U.S. through undocumented channels are very small (1,615 apprehensions between 1999 and 2004), the security threat arises from the fact that of the 70% of OTMs known to have been released on their own recognizance once they have entered the U.S., less than 30% actually show up for their deportation hearings. They simply disappear into the American interior......and it is the fear of what these SI-OTMs may be planning that keeps DHS and FBI agents up at night.

The so-called "catch and release" policy exercised at our southern (and northern) border is due to the lack of federal detention facilities. Rather than detaining OTMs until a deportation court hearing or deporting them outright, they are released on their own recognizance. On June 8, 2004 border agents at the Las Cruces, N.M. border station apprehended three illegal Pakistanis.......and promptly released them. The same day, guards at Texas' Uvalde station released a Bosnian wanted on an Interpol warrant and at the McAllen Border Patrol Sector of Texas more than 42,000 OTMs were released in 2005. Law-enforcement authorities told the Washington Times that al Qaeda is well aware of these loopholes.

Nor is the southern border the only porous border. Despite the projected increase in expenditures for additional border guards provided for in the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004, the Canadian border also continues to operate like a sieve. Most of Canada's one hundred and sixty land and maritime border crossings are guarded by a lone staffer.

7 Heather MacDonald, a contributing editor at the Manhattan Institute's City Journal produced a scathing report in mid-December 2004 on U.S.-Canadian border security. She noted that the alien-smuggling trade was the "sea in which terrorists swim" and indications are that the trade is thriving primarily due to fears of offending the race and civil rights lobbies. She noted that, each week agents at the U.S. border patrol's Swanton sector catch Middle Easterners and North Africans sneaking into Vermont. “And every week, they immediately release (them) with a polite request to return for a deportation hearing because the Department of Homeland Security has failed to budget enough funding for sufficient detention space…….. In May 2004, Swanton agents released illegal aliens from Malaysia, Pakistan, Morocco, Uganda and India without bond. Since these aliens chose to evade the standard visa process, none has had a background check by a U.S. consular official that might have uncovered terrorist connections." All are now at large in the U.S.

8 The 9/11 Commission Report cataloged the "failures of imagination, policy, capabilities and management" that enabled Islamic terrorists to kill over 3,000 Americans. We have clearly not learned the lessons of 9/11. Unfortunately, what happens at our borders never stays at our borders. By not securing our northern and southern flanks, we continue to expose our country to catastrophe. As Richard Shultz, an international security expert at Tufts University's Fletcher School in Medford, Mass. has acknowledged: "We believe there is an international Salafist jihadi movement with a goal to attack....... the U.S. These terrorists are smart. They study these issues and learn from one other. And one way (into America) is right through the southern security perimeter."

[end]

Our WOT does include open borders. You don't like the connection-too bad. It's there. So, if Bush wants to talk about fighting the WOT, when the fence gets built he was serious about it. Otherwise it's only for a sound byte.

I thought it was sure great of the President to choose the Heritage Foundation as a location for his speech. But I think he kind of missed the main point. We are not at war with a nation, or with "terror", but with radical RELIGIOUS fundamentalists who are motivated by a radical Jihad. Until the President and the rest of America realize this, we won't have effective resolve. Take a look at how radical this Muslims are: Their Own Words posts English translations of radical Jihadists who promote hate on public television and radio in radical Middle Eastern countries.

Too bad he didn’t mention those two clowns by name.

This president is a man in the truest sense of the word. He has conviction and purpose and unlike the average and greater majority of politicians is not swayed from them by public sentiment ginned up by biased polls. Clearly he is fighting for this country’s very existence and despite the pathetic power mongers on the left he will see his plan through until he leaves the job. It is his leadership that so infuriates the media and the spineless on the left because they see in him someone they could never hope to be, a principled and totally dedicated individual.

His legacy will not be written for many years yet and I have no doubt as to how good it will be.

Right on, right on! His leadership, resolve and class will be missed for quite some time in the WH. Men like President GWB don't come around all that often...and even less into such positions as he is in now.

God bless him and his family.

We should also take solace in the fact that this POTUS takes his job very seriously and still has well over a year left.....He will continue to lead and continue to take the fight to our enemies until his last minutes in office. Those that think politics or the 08 elections will get in the way......Don't understand this man.

Dimocrat candidates have to say many things to garner the votes needed to be elected to office. Once in office, after receiving a complete briefing on the intel and information on the WOT, they will quite likely act differently. We’ll see if one of the Dims gets elected if they do the right thing, or pander to their base.

It is not the government who is protecting us, it is God who is! We all should be on our knees thanking God for His protection. By His grace we have been kept from chaos. Praise YOU, God, and Thank YOU!

Not an immigration thread. Let us not hijack it, okay?

I don't see anyone talking about immigration on this thread. If you and others like you don't understand the difference between immigration and ILLEGAL immigration and you can't see the connection between our wide open borders and the WOT, then you are hopelessly naive.

Few do understand him and those are the ones who think he MUST do everything they want him to do or else he is a “bad” conservative. They forget that from the beginning he called himself a ‘compassionate’ conservative.

He has done things I am not happy with (immigration) but my satisfaction with him in other areas outweigh any disappointment in the area of immigration. In the WOT and it’s prosecution, we could not have invented a man more qualified and determined then is this man, George W. Bush.

From your first site:

A portion of the website is entitled “Islam is Not the Enemy.” There they will find pro-Western, pro-American, pro-democracy and even pro-Israel statements and opinions from Muslim leaders and scholars. On this portion of the site, for example, you’ll hear a Saudi mufti exhorting Saudi youth not to engage in jihad. On all parts of TheirOwnWords.com, we have used the best translators that we could find, and we openly invite scrutiny. In our TV spot, we expect that we will be accused of taking some of the quotations from Jihadists out of context, so we provide the context. In other words, for each of the 5 to 10 second quotations we feature in the TV spot, we provide a link to the longer, two minute to twenty minute speeches or remarks from which the quotations were drawn. We have yet to receive a single charge that the translations are inaccurate or slanted, or that the TV spot features misleading quotations – and that’s after having received over half a million hits since the site was established just a few months ago. Whether in response to Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week or just in your general interest in being an informed citizen, you owe it to yourself to visit TheirOwnWords.com, and then to invite your friends, especially your politically-correct liberal friends, to do the same.

Yada yada yada. That tripe ain't gonna work on me. Here's a little explanation of islam and what it holds in store for me and mine if it can.

"The answer is that the Koran is mostly one long, harsh, belligerent diatribe against infidels. According to the Koran that person who does not accept God's supposed revelations to Mohammed (i.e. the "unbeliever") will be damned by God to endless suffering in a fiery hell. It is a constantly recurring theme appearing on nearly every page. And God does not only punish the "unbeliever" but he takes great delight in watching him writhe in anguish. The God of the Koran is a God of vengeance and spite. The Koran is a book filled with venom --- venom against all non-Muslims but especially against Jews and Christians.

The words of the Koran are supposedly the words of God himself spoken through the Angel Gabriel. The Koran is repetitious in the extreme, very boring, and very deficient in anything profound. It is not what one would expect of a religious book. God's malice toward the unbeliever, i.e. the non-Muslim, pervades from cover to cover. The attitude projected is that the infidels (meaning Christians, Jews, all non-Muslims) are detested by God; that they are evil; that they are excrement, scum, the filth of the earth. According to the Koran all non- Muslims are rejected of God, damned by God, evil, worthless, fit only to be destroyed. The Koran abounds in explicit references to Christians and Jews. All are condemnatory. The spirit that the Koran projects is one of belligerence, anger and hatred towards the non-Muslim. The Koran repeatedly commands the Muslim to make no friends with the non-Muslim. Do we find an emphasis on such things as kindness, love your neighbor, peaceableness, forgiveness, judge not, etc. in its pages (such as what we find in the teachings of Christ and Christianity)? No. Not at all. Nowhere. The Muslim attitude is "an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth." The Koranic concept of right action is to mercilessly and cruelly slaughter the infidel --- to eliminate them. That is right and meritful action in the eyes of the Koran. As one reads the Koran one cannot help but notice all the harshness, meanness and cruelty that is found on almost every page. It is a book of harshness, meanness and cruelty."

I'm an infidel and a woman that's a double whammy where islam is involved. 9-11 taught me all I need to know about islam.
