    This is the "president" who refused to acknowledge or have any part in what had become the national day of prayer. (promoted by Christians - honored by other presidents)! To all the ‘clueless’ Obamamaniacs who brought this man to power, making the greatest mockery of the office of President of United States of America since Jimma Cahta – shame on you for helping bring America dangerously close to being a third world country. (well, that was the plan, after all!)

    A Fox News reporter wrote, during Obama's campaign, that he views our society not as static and the same is true of the law. He, along with many liberals consider the Constitution to be a living and breathing document and that "the law and the justices who interpret it have to understand that.” Obama criticized Justice Thomas, a conservative member of the court,as not a strong jurist or legal thinker. He voted against both Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito, two appointees of President Bush who vote with Thomas on many issues. World Net Daily reported Obama believes the Constitution is flawed because it fails to address wealth redistribution, and says the Supreme Court should have intervened years ago to accomplish that. "The empathy to understand what it’s like to be poor, or African-American, or gay, or disabled, or old," he said, "is the criteria by which I’m going to be selecting my judges.” Obama also committed himself to respecting the Constitution but said the founding document must be interpreted in the context of current affairs and events. According to many, especially liberals, America already has rejected the Constitution,

    Yes, it absolutely is. Don’t try to muddy the waters of logic by throwing in that mythology that Bush was a fraudulent president and suits filed by some who hung on hope that Gore was the Real president is not equivalent to the suits filed against DNC and Obama’s ineligibility even to be a candidate for President of the US. The judges threw out most of them on a technicality, saying they had no standing. By now citizens should be aware that the courts are the last resort the democrats use in their attempt to hold untrammeled power forever. The greatest danger for our Republic is that the citizenry is so indifferent or ignorant about the laws embedded in the Constitution, not least of which is who can legally hold the highest office in the land. Not Pearl Harbor nor 9-11 was the greatest threat to our nation....but the enemies within...and one of those is contempt for the rule of law. Where are the Patrick Henrys when we need them?

    Once the insurgency began to take a toll on American lives,the mainstream media conspired with the democrats to question President Bush's reasonable concern about Iraq's program to develop WMDs (given the history of Saddam's denial and evasion of specific locations for inspection, the evidence from US intelligence as well U.N. weapons inspectors who went to the Tuwaitha nuclear facility 30 miles outside of Baghdad to see if all the uranium inventoried during the last inspection in February was still there.) The facility was left unguarded in the early days of the war, and many officials say villagers looted much of the property.

    The arrival of the team - whose members were not weapons inspectors - marked the first time since the Iraq war began that representatives from the U.N.'s International Atomic Energy Agency returned to the country. "Inspectors showed there was plenty of evidence to suggest they had weapons," a senior official told Fox News, refering to intelligence that the Iraqis were moving things around in preparation for a coming war. " You don't move things around and disperse them if you don't have them."

  • McCain Pushes 'Cap-And-Trade' Plan to Fight Global Warming

    There are many scientists who have written to the UN and objected to false claims/false science about source of climate change. It isn’t possible to stop climate change, but as in the past if the free market is allowed to operate,research and development can rise to the challenges brought about by it. Contrary to the impression left with that UN Group, and environuts like Gore, Obama, McCain, warning that waters and temperatures are rising due to gashouse emissions, the rate of warming and cooling today is about the same rate as the last 10,000 years.

    John McCain is using the idea of global togetherness to promote “a cap-and-trade system” to battle climate change. He said “Americans and Europeans need to get serious about substantially reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the coming years or we will hand over a much-diminished world to our grandchildren.”

    McCain’s Cap and Trade system would allows for gradual reduction of emissions would control business production and create more bureaucracy to issue permits...require more accountability of govt to meet goals and deadlines.This is 1 step short of nationalizing businesses.

    After they go after the big boys, Cap and Trade will be applied to you...you will be tracked as they drive down your standard of living.

    McCain’s continual parroting the global wamers, professing he will promote Cap & Trade to reduce carbon dioxide emissions,put cuffs on capitalism’s free market, push ahead alliances with other countries to build a better Kyoto, without which he warns the planet cannot survive, should convince everyone that this man is not a conservative, is a lib in sheeps clothing and will do all he can to maximize a centralized gov’t that will seek more regulation, no drilling for oil, no nuclear power...just the same plan Obama, Hillary and the Environmentalist King lobbyists in Congress are bent on.
    Will our constitutional republic survive? Not with any one of these 3 in charge of the WH. We’re in BIG trouble!

    There is something very 'fishy' about Obama's disclaiming any knowledge of his carefully selected spiritual mentor of 20 years using his pulpit to incite racial hatred against whites and rant damnation against the United States for bringing on 9-11 by our 'terrorist' policies. Obama and his family sat under this man's race baiting teaching for 29 years...how could this demogoguery not have made them uncomfortable unless a harmonious chord was struck with the Obamas? Impossible....and it belies Barak Hussein's claims of being a 'uniter' of all America! This guy almost makes Hillary seem like a politician of integrity , (which we all know she is not.)

    In 1999, the French government granted Sifaoui political asylum after he received death threats both from Algerian Islamists and the military. In Paris, Sifaoui works at the French weekly Marianne. Between October 2002 and January 2003, he infiltrated an Al-Qaeda cell in France in order to research his book, "My assassin brothers: How I infiltrated an Al-Qaeda cell." A former intern at Le Figaro and The Weekly Standard, interviewed him in Paris on September 12, 2007, after meeting him at a 9-11 ceremony on the Champ de Mars.

    Have the faint of heart capitulatd? In light of the quandry many republicans are in ‘to vote or not to vote’. Shall cynicism rule the day?
    Was it the pressure of the establishment blue-blood country club republicans to clear the path for McScamnesty that caused Mitt to ‘suspend’ his campaign? or was it his family all concerned about their inheritance? Either way, I’m disgusted. Why give up on something you thought important enough that you would invest so much?

    The Republican party has just taken a step down the road to morphing into the demonsocialists....McCain is well instructed and very adept at ‘reaching across’ the great divide (that once was) to bring republicanism into ‘harmony’ and ‘submission’ to the liberalism ballyhooed by the opPRESSive’ drive by media’.
    This is the result of the moderate Republicans willing to give up on Republican core values in order to be ‘good guys’ and get the public to love them.Rush says these Republicans want amnesty not just for the illegals here, but also for democrats.
    I guess the party potentates (read my lips) have agreed with all the naysayers that “the era of Reagan coalition is Dead”.
    Can Republicans win based on a fear and criticizing Billary - or worse, Obama? Rush says that would be suicide because it would be categorized as anti-black, or woman hatred. But where is there leadership? The people who have made a mess of the Republican party are those who wanted to expand the party (to be a big tent) so as to marginalize the conservatives. That makes more sense than any other motivation I can see in the Establishment Republican tactics - in order to get power back from the grass roots they have despised for so long. (retribution for their embarrssment) It is the establishment republicans who have not supported conservatives, now pushing a candidate who has demeaned the base, not cooperated when Republicans tried to get legislation through the senate - in fact, joined the most liberal democrat senators to create his legislation.

    Have we the intestinal fortitude to hold our nose while voting for the disengenuous Mcmaverick? We’ll see.

    Bravo for placing these socialist ‘Christians’in the appropriate context -the Book of Revelations which prophesizes the ‘falling away’ of the false church(s). This exposure of the leftist ‘evangelicals’(aka liberation theologians) Ron Sider and his counterpart Compolo and the liberalized Fuller Seminary professors, et al whose sole intent is to smear true Christians who take the Bible as the Word of God and attempt to live in the Spirit by which it was created. I’m glad to learn of David Chilton’s book which turns the light on those who serve up Christianity under the socialist-marxist cloak, pushing that version of the meaning of Jesus’life and teachings, “proving that Sider understands neither the Bible nor economics when it comes to his conclusions about profits, taxes, foreign aid, and Western guilt for the Third World poverty.” (from book review)

    I disagree with Captain Ed caution against pointing the finger at Clinton admin for failing to protect us against the 9-11 attack orchestrated by OBL and al-Quaida. I refer him to an NRO interview with Richard Miniter, a Brussels-based investigative journalist, whose book, “Losing bin Laden: How Bill Clinton’s Failures Unleashed Global Terror “ evaluates the run-up to the war on terror.
    http://www.nationalreview.com/interrogatory/interrogatory091103b.asp

    Miniter debunks a myth about the Clinton years that no one knew about bin Laden until Sept. 11, 2001. In fact, the bin Laden threat was recognized at the highest levels of the Clinton administration as early as 1993. What’s more, bin Laden’s attacks kept escalating throughout the Clinton administration; all told bin Laden was responsible for the deaths of 59 Americans on Clinton’s watch.

    On this side of the internet debate going on as to Clinton’s culpability, refer you to a post on http://rhymeswithright.mu.nu/archives/237859.php
    pointing out that Tenet’s strategic planning system to deal with counter-terrorism was offered less than two months before 9/11, at the specific orders of George W. Bush and Condolezza Rice.

    It concludes:
    “..seems pretty clear where the failure occurred — not under President Bush, but under President Clinton. Given the failure of leadership and vision that dated back at least three years before Bush became president, there can be only one conclusion about failures to protect the US. Captain Ed says that it is “not healthy” to point at WJC, but Lifelike Pundits points out that this report demonstrates how Bill Clinton and Madeline Albright lied to the American people when they claim that they left a detailed plan for the Bush Administration...”

    The health of our nation depends on no more Clintons in the WH failing to protect America and then lied about it afterward.

    It all comes down to passing the buck. Jay Rockefeller blames Bush administration policies for inability to capture bin Laden, but it was Clinton who rejected the offer from Sudan to hand over the infamous terrorist because he wasn't sure the US had enough 'evidence' to hold him. Tenant personally sounded the alarm before Congress, the military and policymakers in a now well-known 1998 memo, he declared, "We are at war."

    The trouble, the report said, was follow-up, and that represented failure within the agencies limited covert-action capabilities, it's reliance on "a group of sources with questionable reliability" and its reluctance to seek authority to assassinate bin Laden.

    The drug smuggler shot was given a free pass to cross the border, and acquaintences have revealed a prvious drug delivery in TX. Following the immunity given him by our government, he delivered another large load of drugs.

    One reviewer of this article said he Mother of Osvaldo Aldreto-Davila has friendship with a high ranking Bush Cabinet member, possibly in homeland sec. That is why the border agents are kept in prison. The Drug smuggler has freedon to roam the USA whenever he wants. If true, what is our government doing making 'deals" with Mexican drug smugglers? The obvious travesty here is the excessive punishment by the judge, and Johnny Suttons protesteth too much.

    I spent many hours faxing, phoning and emailing up through midnight - so I’m wondering if our efforts are bearing fruit right now. Do we have a voice in our governing...will we cease to be the land of the free and brave? Our ‘conservative’ senators who voted closure on this giveaway amnesty bill offer little hope or encouragement that our voice means anything to our elected representatives. But GrassTops/Grassfire today sent this challenge which may help buck us up:
    (Remember, a week ago we only had about 27 firm votes in the Senate against amnesty... a couple of days ago we reported that we only had 32-33 votes against amnesty and on Tuesday, 35 Senators voted to kill this bill.)

    We are gaining ground. We have momentum and we MUST NOT give up. But time is short. WE MUST ACT NOW!

    24 Republican senators had the chance to vote according to the wishes of the American people and kill amnesty for 12-20 million illegal aliens once and for all. They chose otherwise. As early as Thursday, they will have another chance.

    Use the hyperlink below to send your urgent and personalized 24 Blast Fax Messages to the Members of the United States Senate who voted against the wishes of the American people. A shift of only FIVE votes can kill this amnesty legislation!

    As senators meet secretly to trade amendments for amnesty, the majority of citizens continue to demand answers that forthrightly address the growing problems of who will pay the costs of massive illegal immigration and the attendant social/political upheavals attendant on repeating a 1986 Amnesty bill, many questions need to be answered such as does prohibiting the states from recognizing "anchor babies" born in the United States to illegal immigrants as U.S. citizens upend the constitution? Will they continue to drive chain migration that has led to the mess we are in that has been so long ignored by our government? We are the only country in the world that recognizes the children of illegal immigrants as citizens. Does the 'reformed comprehensive' immigration bill contain federally-mandated benefits such as health care and public education, and a policy allowing undocumented college students to qualify for in-state tuition rate...something not provided to our citizens?

    Would that be the bridge to nowhere, (except to a tiny islet where 38 people live)earmarked by congress to tune of $223 million to the taxpayers? Isn’t that what the present ‘debate’ amounts to .... horse trading between thieves and pirates in Congress where everyone passes around the wampum until they get what they want (again at the taxpayer’s expense)?
    Why so cynical? I heard a preview of Dick Morris’s book, “Outrage”, and I think we can get more quickly to the nub of this obscene Machiavellian cabal being hatched in the backrooms of the Senate if we get more insights into the major players. Morris will do that nicely. (lots of experience)
