  • DUmmie FUnnies 03-15-07 (DUmmies Speculate About What Happened To Chuck Hagel)

    Take a look at the pic above of Senator Chuck Hagel at his press conference last Monday. Gone is his normal know-it-all shmuck demeanor to be replaced by a sad looking bleary-eyed soul who announced in a hesitant voice that he hasn't made his mind up yet whether he will run for President. To get the full effect of the astonishing change in Hagel, one needs to watch the VIDEO of his non-announcement. His whole body language speaks of utter defeat. So what happened? Some in the press have speculated that Hagel is such an incredible egomaniac that he...

    All of this Democratic hand-wringing and knee-jerking is poisonous to this country, and I want no part of it. Only by rejecting these tendencies, did the United States become the military, industrial, economic, and technological superpower that it remains today. Only by rejecting these tendencies every time we confront them, will we continue to remain a free nation. History, not Congressman Chuck Hagel (R-NB) will be the judge whether the addition of 20,000 plus troops was the the most dangerous foreign policy blunder since Vietnam. Nor will history look favorably upon the naysayers in either party, once the consequences of...
  • De-authorizing Iraq (Robert Novak on the US Senate)

    The Patriot Post ^ | February 26, 2007 | Robert Novak
    WASHINGTON -- Democratic senators this week will face trouble trying to cleanse themselves of the stain left by voting for President Bush's Iraq war resolution. Republican senators who have turned against U.S. military intervention in Iraq are not interested in bailing out Democrats by approving their proposal to repeal the 2002 authorization passed overwhelmingly by Congress. As Congress returns this week from the year's first recess, authorization repeal is supposed to be attached to the bill containing homeland security recommendations by the 9/11 commission. But Sen. Norm Coleman, who has become prominent among Republican critics of Bush's war policy, told...

    The Rockefellers and Iran: Jay Rockefeller’s Reversal and the Iranian-American LobbyBy Fedora In 1979, Rockefeller representatives launched an unsuccessful operation to lobby the Carter administration in support of the Shah of Iran, who was seeking safe haven in the wake of a coup by Islamic revolutionaries. Codenamed Project Alpha, the operation was spearheaded by Chase Manhattan Bank Chairman David Rockefeller and former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, with support from oil lobby lawyer John McCloy. Although Project Alpha won the support of National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski, it met opposition from Secretary of State Cyrus Vance and failed to win...

    Hagel for President No, that's not an endorsement. Sunday, February 4, 2007 12:01 a.m. EST No, we don't mean this as an endorsement. The Journal doesn't endorse candidates, and on the big issues of the day we don't much agree with Chuck Hagel in any case. But with the Nebraska Republican loudly agitating for a rapid withdrawal from Iraq, we think it's time the Senator tested his ideas somewhere other than the Sunday talk shows.

    A month ago the idea that Sen. Chuck Hagel would make a serious run for the Republican presidential nomination would have been a non-starter. As an outspoken critic of President Bush on Iraq and other issues, Hagel's way was blocked. His best hope was nomination by a quixotic third party in an online convention. It's a measure of the step change brought about by the Nov. 7 elections that Hagel is now seriously exploring a GOP presidential bid. The Republican blowout, he says, reflected a "breakdown of confidence and trust in governance" and opened the way for what he believes...

    The documents seized in the FBI raid on the offices of Rep. William Jefferson (D-LA) remain unread by Justice Department investigators, pending a federal Appeals Court ruling scheduled for August 27. Jefferson is anxious to overturn the ruling of federal Judge Hogan of the Washington, DC federal District Court, who allowed the raid. One can only surmise that the seized documents contain material even more embarrassing than the discovery of $90,000 in cash in Jefferson’s freezer. But we already know a bit about the charges and some of the alleged partners of Congressman Jefferson. Two people have pleaded guilty to...

    Omaha world herald ^ | 7-9-2006 | Rick Ruggles
    Protesters against illegal immigration stated their case Saturday on west Omaha streets. Organizer Tim Narducci estimated that 175 people gathered in the vicinity of 114th and Davenport Streets for a two-hour demonstration. Narducci said there were no incidents or problems in this, the third such protest. The group's primary message encourages Congress to seal the Mexico-United States border with a fence or wall and more manpower. Congress currently is struggling to determine what to do about the millions of people who are in this country illegally. The Senate has passed a bill requiring stiffer border security and an opportunity for...

    Cato Institute ^ | May 30, 2006 | Daniel T. Griswold
    The debate in Washington over reforming America's immigration laws has produced not only heated rhetoric but a few fantastic claims. Few are wilder than a prediction from a well-known think-tank that the reform bill just passed by the Senate will result in 103 million legal immigrants to the United States during the next 20 years. In a "Web Memo" from the Heritage Foundation, author Robert Rector claims that the Hagel-Martinez immigration bill (S. 2611) would unleash a flood of chain migration that would overwhelm America's capacity to absorb so many people. He calculates that the bill would not only allow...

    The sordid tale now making the rounds in the "mainstream" press of a rogue Pentagon intelligence operation has all the elements of an urban legend: heavy breathing, a secret basement office "down by the ramp" and government officials who form a hidden alliance based on long-ago ties to an obscure but influential university guru. Only the work of a few good men with the courage to face up to this "cabal" - and a few crusader-journalists to help them - can make the demons scatter and scare the dark ones into the light. Or so the story goes on those...
