    Herman Cain's former Iowa state director, Tina Goff, has signed on to Rick Santorum's presidential campaign. Goff is one of three Iowa staffers that resigned from the Cain campaign in June, citing Cain's unwillingness to make a serious effort in the first-caucus state ahead of the Ames Straw Poll. "Senator Santorum has shown a tremendous commitment to Iowa and the principles our nation was founded upon. I have worked for several presidential campaigns, but none have the organization, passion, and focus of the Santorum campaign," Goff said in a statement. "This is a refreshing reminder of what voters require of...

    U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan's open defiance of Speaker John Boehner's efforts to solve the debt-ceiling crisis could cost the Urbana Republican his safe seat in next year's election. Two Republican sources deeply involved in configuring new Ohio congressional districts confirmed to The Dispatch today that Jordan's disloyalty to Boehner has put him in jeopardy of being zeroed out of a district.

    The fact that someone could go through -- at government expense -- an undergraduate education with ROTC, then medical school at a US military institution, and remain a traitor to the United States is a significant warning. A very significant warning that the idea of Political Correctness has consequences we can't afford. Corruption of the Legions is one danger the Republic cannot endure. The Legions remain faithful; but for how long when their officers are no longer faithful? Hassan had been through ROTC and a US armed forces medical school as a commissioned officer. Why was his failure of loyalty...

    The federal government is budgeting funds for an anticipated “hot summer” of domestic unrest. “With the likes of Limbaugh, Santelli, Cramer and others stirring up trouble with their repeated expressions of disrespect toward the President, we’ve got to be prepared,” said the President’s Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs. “We cannot tolerate any destabilizing demonstrations of disloyalty during these times of severe economic crisis.” Gibbs warned that “the army has been training assiduously for this sort of contingency since day-one of this Administration. There is an old saying from World War II that ‘loose lips sink ships.’ Well, we cannot afford to...

    Republican Sen. John McCain, a staunch defender of the Iraq war, on Tuesday faulted the Bush administration for misleading Americans into believing the conflict would be "some kind of day at the beach." The potential 2008 presidential candidate, who a day earlier had rejected calls for withdrawing U.S. forces, said the administration had failed to make clear the challenges facing the military. "I think one of the biggest mistakes we made was underestimating the size of the task and the sacrifices that would be required," McCain said. "Stuff happens, mission accomplished, last throes, a few dead-enders. I'm just more familiar...
  • Thune Says He'd Distance Himself From Bush

    Thune Says He'd Distance Himself From Bush Jul 19 1:06 PM US/Eastern By MARY CLARE JALONICK Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON Freshman Sen. John Thune, the Republican hero two years ago for ousting the Senate Democratic leader, said Wednesday that if he were running this year, he'd distance himself from President Bush and his agenda. In 2004, the White House political operation recruited Thune to challenge Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle. He dealt the Democratic Party a major blow, edging Daschle in South Dakota as Bush captured a second term. Thune, a conservative who rarely breaks with the GOP or Bush,...

    OK, it's time to vent my spleen. I'm so disgusted with the Democrat and Left in this country...American men and women have been dying at terrorists' hands since WTC-1 in 1993 (if not before), and the damn Democrats, and their surrogates like MoveOn and the ACLU can do nothing than undermine the President and the GWOT. These bums like Kerry, Pelosi, Reid, Kennedy, et al, don't give a damn about fighting terrorists. They have forgotten Sept 11. All they care about is opposing anything the President is for - and all just to regain power so they can pass THEIR...

Where does the enemy get his information -- information that can put you, and has put your comrades, adrift on an open sea: information that has lost battles and can lose more, unless you personally, vigilantly, perform your duty in SAFEGUARDING MILITARY INFORMATION? THERE ARE TEN PROHIBITED SUBJECTS 1. Don't write military information of Army units -- their location, strength,, materiel, or equipment. 2. Don't write of military installations. 3.

  • Democrat's Great Escape

    05/24/2005 5:03:35 AM PDT · by ShelleyAa · 18 replies · 823+ views
    The Great Escape Democrats today can wipe the sweat off their brows, thanks to a small group of RHINO Republicans (Republicans In Name Only). Be assured, neither Media Elite nor their party with “honesty” in hand will speak of this near-death-experience, but in truth they were going down due to their own actions or lack there of. Most understand that Democrats last hope, with loss after loss at the ballot box, is to control the judiciary, allowing only liberal, ideologically activist judges on the bench. Without votes needed, a saving-of-face, the survival of the do-nothing, obstructionist’s party were given another...

    Top strategists with John Kerry's presidential campaign are blaming his crushing defeat last week on bad advice from Clinton operatives who took over the campaign after Labor Day. "When [James] Carville and [Stan] Greenberg tell reporters that the campaign was missing a defining narrative, they forget that they were the ones insisting we had to keep beating the domestic-issues drum," complained David Thorne on Thursday. Thorne - a brother-in-law from Kerry's first marriage to Julia Thorne - was one of Kerry's closest advisors throughout the campaign. Thorne told political gadfly Arianna Huffington that because of the misguided Carville-Greenberg strategy, "We...

    Ron Reagan's Pere Pressure By Richard Cohen Thursday, July 15, 2004; Page A21 ... Let's leave aside the implied accusation that Bush is publicly religious not out of conviction but "to gain political advantage" and question the appropriateness of the statement -- at the burial and citing the dead Reagan. And let us also concede that if Ron Reagan were not his father's son, not only would he not have been at that funeral -- by virtue of what achievement? -- but no one would have paid him any attention. He had, as he well knew, expropriated his father's fame...

    <p>It will be interesting to see whether the liberal media, having slobbered all over former Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill's "red meat" attacks on President Bush, will pay as much attention to the fired Cabinet official's follow-up remarks.</p> <p>Interviewed yesterday on NBC's "Today" show, O'Neill said that despite the harsh criticism of his former boss, he will "probably" vote for Bush in November. "I don't see anyone who is better prepared or more capable," he said.</p>

    Muslim Agent Refused to Record Fellow Muslim, Agent Says Perhaps most astounding of the many mistakes, according to Flessner and an affidavit filed by Wright, is how an FBI agent named Gamal Abdel-Hafiz seriously damaged the investigation. Wright says Abdel-Hafiz, who is Muslim, refused to secretly record one of al-Kadi's suspected associates, who was also Muslim. Wright says Abdel-Hafiz told him, Vincent and other agents that "a Muslim doesn't record another Muslim." "He wouldn't have any problems interviewing or recording somebody who wasn't a Muslim, but he could never record another Muslim," said Vincent. Wright said he "was floored" by...
