Eric Holder on NBC - now THAT’LL be a softball show.
King, Shelby and Giuliani in a sea of blue.
The wiffle-ball media strike again!
Abbie, thanks for the thread and the ping.
Thanks for the warning, I'll take my blood pressure meds now to get ready.
Your welcome, er, Rockell!
Hiya AB, all....
Husband is still having a helluva time of it. Yes, he’s STILL in hospital. He is, however, out of ICU and I am filled to the brim with hospital horror stories.
Let’s just simplify and state right now that your health care is on YOU. Do not ASS-U-ME that the medicos know what they are doing. Do not ASS-U-ME that they are giving you your meds correctly, that they have schedule therapies correctly, that they even have your background correctly.
Keep eyes on everything cause it is your body.
Prayers are still welcomed and Happy Mother’s Day to all Moms.
Daughter and granddaughter spending weekend with me this weekend and it’s nice.
The discussion went to the AZ immigration bill.
Huck was advocating building more of the fence -- eventually completely across the border -- ‘like was done in Duncan Hunter's district in California’.
Huck has changed his tune since he was pro-amnesty, pro-open borders, pro-illegals governor. [I guess, if McCain can shape-shift into a conservative on border issues, Huck can, too.]
That seems to hint that Huck is thinking about another run in 2012.
Since Bennett in UT was endorsed by Romney, many in the Bennet-loses threads seem to think that will hurt Romney.
[Gag] That could mean that the MSM might start pushing Huck as the front-runner.
Thanks for mentioning that. I forgot to take my REAL BP meds this morning, because I slept late!
Your sarcasm was a lucky reminder to me!
Comment..Don’t waste your time listning to well rehearsed propaganda talking points. Better to relax go fishin or play Golf. Then take Mom out to dinner. ‘Sunday’ shows are just rehashing old stale psychobabble.
Just wondering if the “day one” mantra will be used again?
Radio says Mexican police officer was arrested for drug smuggling after bringing what is believed to be cocaine across the border in Arizona.
Has anyone checked lost-and-found?
This is the 2nd weekend in a row they both have missed.
Lieberman makes a poor substitute.
[The race in AZ seems to have tightened. A thread yesterday showed Rasmussen polling: McCain at 47%, Hayworth at 42%.]
Good morning, Alas.
Happy Mother’s Day, you dear moms.
I agree. I do not want to willingly sit here and be lied to by Obama’s agents.
Speaking of lying, I heard (just once) that there may be lawsuits against the CEO of GM for making the ad stating that GM had paid back their govt loans.
Theory: if the CEO can willfully lie about something so blatently untrue, what does that say about GM warranties, promises, etc. on any GM product.
Chris Wallace is doing his promo on F&F.
He said the Bennett defeat has sent shockwaves through the GOP.
[EXCELLENT! Maybe that will wake up the old geezers.]
We don’t have a new controversy, so the media is holding them in reserve. When things heat up about cap and trade or amnesty, they will have a balanced show with Schumer and Boxer on one side and Graham representing us.
Pffft. As far as I am concerned, Graham is being blackmailed. I wish he would come clean or resign. It is just so depressing to have him screwing things up at every turn.
I don’t want to hear anything about “the comity of the Senate.” I want people who will fight to defend the Constitution and the people of this country.
We need people with warriors’ hearts, not compromisers and milquetoasts. I can guaran-darn tee you that the democrats are not looking for people who will “reach across the aisle.”
Geezer time has passed. There are “only” 100 Senate seats, so it is ‘selfish’ for those nearing 80 to want to keep one of the seats. We need fresh minds.
Are you listening, McCain?
Will Guliani have the guts to even mention how WRONG it is to have a mosque next to the WTC area? Nope. I bet it doesn’t even get mentioned.
Your regime got lucky this time, just like they did with the airliner over Detroit at Christmas. We are stopping none of these attacks. How long can we continue blindly trusting to luck to keep us safe Mr President?
Past time your crowd of Progressive Fascists politicos in the Democrat party owned up to the harsh truth. The reason we keep getting lucky has more to do with the fact the the bulk of the highly trained Pre 09-11 terrorists are in graves in Iraq and Afghanistan then anything your regime is doing.
You are so right!
If you don’t have a significant other there with you at all times....Good Luck!
When my mom ( may her soul rest in peace...and I know it is) was in the hospital post surgery once, I would do middle of the night “spot checks”..ha! Once I showed up at 3 am and she hadn’t got her pain meds. I grabbed Mom’s chart and did a “chart review” with the charge nurse! Ha. They hated to see me coming, but things got done!
Hang in there! Prayers up!
I want people on our side who “reach across the aisle” with:
irrefutable debate-stopping facts, rapier wit, effective ridicule with cutting sarcasm, and the occasional b!+chslap!
Traveling thru Raleigh this morning, and the local buzz seems to be lots of incumbents lost this week's primaries in North Carolina....mostly Dems...substantially better Republican turnout that for Dems.
thanks for your loyal thread...
I see that I will need to get two chocolate donuts to handle this!
Holder? Maybe half a dozen donuts!
We don't need to get things done in DC. We need to get things undone.
Oh God bless you for your experience and verifying mine.
Going to mass this morning with NON-CATHOLIC daughter. This should be interesting.
Take care all....
If the NYers allow this, they deserve another attack and all the destrutcive RATs they've ever elected, including Clinton, Schumer, Rangel, Bloomingidiot et al.
Brennan looks like he’s strung real tight, and could have a hair trigger temper. Someone may just push him a little too far for his thin patience in all these shows .. he could have a little explosion.
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY, FREEPER MOMS !!!
Thanks for the thread, the guests look to be numbingly dull today, so I probably will sit it out.
I watched Brennan's confirmation hearings. My comment at the time was there is something very wrong about this man.
“Chris Wallace is doing his promo on F&F.”
yeah, I saw that - however, he also said that Bennett is one of the most conservative members of congress. tells you a lot about Wallace (as if we don’t all know). funny, BHO keeps blathering about being “historical” and his historical moments.
well, I pray this November will REALLY be historical. or I’ll be hysterical (as I was November ‘08). sorry, I just had to say that :-)
Thanks AB. Happy Mother’s Day to all those Moms out there
Amen, but not necessasarily in that order.
they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synaogues; Matt 23:6
Two years ago the Soviet State of Oregon had one of the first heretics burned at the stake of Global Warming. Our 16 yr State Climatologist George Taylor was forced to retire over his stand against the cult of GW. He spoke heresy when he said 2 yrs ago he wasnt convinced there was a connection between industrial emissions and CO2 levels in the atmosphere. This of course was right after egores movie which the entire liberalstablishment was googly eyes for and here was the leading State authority in the most liberal state in the union speaking against it.
I had the opportunity to interview him and asked him some questions about this conflict and how it was to be someone standing against groupthink inside academia. It is an interview that can be repeated in every issue liberals use the consensus argument when they dont have the facts. Oregon is one of the most strategic locations in the world for studying climate and weather since it sits right on the Pacific receiving all the weather coming from the SE Asian Tropics. This makes Oregon and the NW the directly affected by the Nino effects which are the primary weather factors worldwide and is his theory. There are direct correlations between temps of those oceans and rain and drought in America and worldwide.
His fall began when he read scientist Pat Michaels book, Sound and Fury which he stated you had to go where the data led you and in GW the data didnt lead you where the models said they were going. He found giant holes in the works and he too became a heretic to the warmists. George too began following the data he was collecting and noticed there was a lot of Cherry Picking of data and graphs which were being used to exaggerate or falsify results to promote their hoax. By simply following the data he uncovered the truth which is not allowed in science.
This came to a head when George was axed to debate the WA State Climatologist who was a High Priest in the religion of GW, Phil Mote. For the debate the group hosting it put an article in the Oregonian and filled the arena bringing all of Mainextreme Media to make a huge event, the Heretic against the High Priest. In attendance was Gov Kulingoski aide Alan Alley, the next day the Gov said he didnt want him for his Climatologist and eliminated the state position. He won the debate, but became a thorn at OSU where he worked with other Priests of the cult.
As he said, I would rather be an honest Pariah than a dishonest friend. Later that year he retired from his job and opened his own weather consulting firm. We spoke about the politics in science and how it has corrupted not only the results but the scientists themselves. He spoke of a Steven Schneider who said, It is more important to be effective than it is to be honest the right balance is between being effective and being honest. .....the warming cause is more important than getting the science right
When I asked him if he knew there was manipulation of data he said yes he had seen the data fudged or cherry picked for the last ten years. I then asked if since he knew and most everybody skeptical suspected it who didnt have access to the data, how could the actual GW scientists not know? He would not answer the question since he couldnt read their minds or speak for them, although it was pretty clear he suspected it strongly.
Then we spoke about what it is like to work in a field your entire life and know you were following the truth wherever it led only to be run out for it? He mentioned the book, Structures of Scientific Revolutions by Thomas Khun which goes through the history of science and how many times bad science was often proved wrong by lone heretics. Lone voices going against the group think which disproves the consensus, such as Continental Drift, El Nino, Acid Rain, DDT, the Ozone Hole, going back to evolution of man during Hitler which led to Eugenics. He said science doesnt have a very good history of always being right and GW will be one more example. He did say it was painful to lose his idealism that science was a constant search for the truth when in reality its been corrupted by politics. He is a victim of its corruption as he was burned at the stake during the heyday of GW and now we watch them desperately dancing their burning kite.
We spoke how it is far more a religion than a science. There is no science left to really prove what they are trying to prove. They are fabricating data from phony weather stations and ignoring everything counter to keep the lie alive. We talked about how the cultists are Fundamental in their belief and how he was an example of their refusal to listen to or consider opposing thought. They are so strident in their belief they wont allow skeptics to review their findings as one said, why should I let you see my data, youll only poke holes in it. Isnt that what science is supposed to do? If its the truth there will be nowhere to poke holes which is why they invented consensus. He finally said there is no voting on science, so consensus is a way to silence critics like him.
George is a great guy who has no regrets about what happened to him. He has a wonderful job working for himself and doesnt have to tiptoe around people who dont respect what he believes. He knows the fact he is a Christian was used against him as it made him less than a pure atheistic scientist and no longer has to worry about any of that. He leads a youth group in his church and has the satisfaction of knowing more about Oregon weather than any person in the state, he likely has the real explanation of GW and Cooling. After GW collapses from the truth he can know he didnt compromise any of his morals or beliefs while knowing his ex-colleagues corrupted all of theirs. His theory is still standing while theirs is crumbling around them. George Taylor is now one of a few honest scientists as sciences flaming kite is exploding into the Hindenburg crashing to earth.
Pray for America
Well, Eric Holder is telling us what a great job Elana Kagan has done as solicitor general. We all know how great Eric Holder’s judgement is.
LOL. Gregory brings of Napolitano’s comments last week. Holder’s blink factor goes into overdrive.
Brennen just said we have to kill terrorists.
He’s in our prayers Fish. Happy Mother’s Day to you and all the FRette Mothers.
Pray for America and Fish’ Husband
I wonder if Brennan is realted to Walter. They both spoke the same way and made the same amount of sense.
Oh lordy, Holder is looking into whether Shahzad was in any of the data bases.
Something that everyone here who is paying attention to this already knows all about.
The shine sure came off Holder in a hurry once he no longer had Janet Reno’s ample skirts to hide behind.
