The Democrats Are Liars Part VI

The Democrats have been attempting to lay the entire blame for the War in Iraq at President Bush's feet. That fact prompted me to write this series of posts to show that many leaders, including several prominent Democrats, sought strong action against Saddam Hussein long BEFORE President Bush took office and early on in his term. Now these same Democrats have been crucifying President Bush over the Iraq War for years. I have already covered Democrat's Al Gore, Bill Clinton, John Kerry, and John Edwards. In part VI, I will take a look at what the incredible phony, Senator Hillary Clinton had to say pre Iraq War. Most recently I saw that impostor, Hillary Clinton at the Obama Campaign rally in Unity, New Hampshire. Clinton made a statement to the crowd about getting our troops out of Iraq to resounding applause. Well here is what that impostor had to say on October 10 2002; "In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including Al Qaeda members, though there is apparently no evidence of his involvement in the terrible events of September 11, 2001. It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons. Should he succeed in that endeavor, he could alter the political and security landscape of the Middle East, which as we know all too well affects American security." I thought the Dems wanted us to believe that there is no connection between Iraq and Al Qaeda and that the Iraq War had nothing to do with the War on Terrorism. So here it is another quote that can be easily read and verified by each and every American. Why then is there so much applause for the impostors when they slam the Republicans about Iraq. I respect that many of my American Brothers and Sisters disapprove of the War in Iraq, but instead of applauding for the impostors they should say "Hey Democrats you are equally to blame".

Oil Soars, Crickets In Washington

The national average price for a gallon of gas has now reached $4.08, according to the motorist group AAA. Gas prices have risen 2.9% in the last month and are almost 38% higher than where they were a year ago. Oil reached a new record high today of $143.67 per barrel, but retreated a bit to close at a mere $140. Meanwhile on Wall Street, stocks have taken a beating for the month of June. Most other economic indicators stink as well. Now for the good news. OK, you got me, there is no good news. There is however an abundance of worse news. Congress has managed to do little to aid our ailing economy, much less to bring relief for the soaring price of oil. I know that the inaction of Congress does not surprise you, after all we have come to expect so little from our Legislative Branch. Things are heating up in the Middle East and I fear that that will really send the price of oil skyrocketing. Iran has now threatened to cut off the Strait of Hormuz, one of the main oil passageways in the Persian Gulf. Iran made this statement in light of the speculation about an attack on their nuclear facilities by Israel. The Middle East is like a powder keg in a world full of sparks. I have said it many times before that we could be close to World War Three. An attack on Iran by Israel could very well be that spark or even the high price of oil itself. Eventually the price of oil may hit a mark that Americans can not endure, and cause a suffering that Congress can no longer ignore.

Obama Picks Up Gadhafi Endorsement

So Democratic Senator and Presidential Nominee Barack Obama has now picked up the Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi's endorsement of his campaign for the Presidency. A much sought after endorsement for sure, and somewhere Republican Nominee John McCain must be silently sobbing. Obama can now add the Gadhafi endorsement to his long distinguished list which includes, Hanoi Jane Fonda, The Castro Brothers in Cuba, PLO leader Rashid Khalidi, other known terrorists, and many more shady characters. In a recent speech Gadhafi referred to Obama as; "our brother, the Kenyan with American nationality." How Sweet, it's always good to pick up an endorsement from another known terrorist. Gadhafi went on to say that "all Africa" is behind Obama's bid for the Presidency. I am at a loss for words. To be fair, Gadhafi also roundly criticized Obama for his recent speech in support of Israel (of course), but Obama has his election time pandering to do just like any "non change" politician must do. It's comforting to know that despite this Gadhafi still considers Obama to be his "brother". Hey I've been all over this stuff for the last few hundred posts. Americans have to make up their own minds about Obama. Just one question; how many terrorist and anti-American endorsements does a candidate have to acquire before we come to the realization that something is amiss?

Thank You For A Safer World

The Bush Administration has taken a lot of heat over the last eight years for well, everything and anything. Bush bashing is in vogue especially among the Democrats. I have long held the belief that the Dems gripes with the President have less to do with policies and more to do with the bitterness of losing so many bids for the White House. Just look at what Senator Clinton said in her appearance at yesterdays Obama Campaign rally. Clinton complained that the Democrats have only won three elections in the last forty years. If you ask me that means the Democratic Party is out of step with the American People. The Bush bashing is not limited to the Dems. The liberal media has done a lot more than just report the news during Bush's term, they have made it an eight year opinion editorial of his Presidency. So having said all of that, it's unlikely that President Bush will receive much credit for the recent developments in North Korea. Yesterday the North Koreans demolished the 60 foot tall cooling tower at the Yongbyon Nuclear Center, in a major first step towards ending it's nuclear program. Let me tell you something, at that moment, the World became much safer. With all of the nuclear proliferation around the globe, I admit that I was pleasantly surprised to see some positive news for a change. The destruction of the nuclear cooling tower was only part of the deal. North Korea also made a 60 page declaration of its nuclear capabilities in a unprecedented move for disclosure. North Korea also committed to destroying, under international monitoring, the remaining parts of the nuclear plant. Absolutely great news! So where is President Bush's praise for a job well done? After all, this was an amazing piece of diplomacy. All we did was take North Korea off of our State sponsors of terrorism list and lifted some sanctions. The North Korean's really are not terrorists anyway. So in return we made the World safer and have verifiable results unlike Clinton's bum deal with North Korea back in 1994. Don't think Bush deserves the credit? Remember his State Of The Union Speech from a few years ago? He called out North Korea and Iran including them in his "axis of evil". I hope no sane person would debate the threat posed by Iran, and now years after Bush spoke tough about North Korea, we have positive results. It reminds me of President Reagan calling out the "Evil Empire" back in the 1980's. Say what you want about President Bush. I think that Bush lead us through eight of the most difficult years in recent American history with flying colors. We have been safe since 9/11, the terrorists are on the defensive, and North Korea is ending its nuclear program. Oh I almost forgot, Lybia ended their nuclear program a few years ago too. Since the mainstream media will not say it, I will. Thank you Mr. President for a job well done.

Obama And Clinton

I tried not to enjoy the Obama Campaign rally featuring Hillary Clinton today, but I must confess that I did, just a little. The banter between the two former rivals was funny and seemed spontaneous. Clinton poked fun at her age by highlighting her many years of public service suggesting that somebody should say that that she did appear that old. The Obama rally was symbolically held in Unity, New Hampshire. Unity is just what the Democratic Party is seeking, and exactly why Hillary Clinton appeared with Obama at the rally. Polls and pundits alike agree that the Dems have a long way to go to achieve that unity. Many former Clinton supporters say that they are still going to vote for John McCain this fall. I think that Clinton speech today will go a long way towards bringing many of her supporter holdouts into the Obama camp. Undoubtedly, this will not be her final effort to help Obama, as Clinton will likely be very visible in the coming months. She seemed genuinely upset when she told the crowd that there have only been three Democrats elected President in the last forty years. Two of those were her hubby Bill Clinton. Where was good old "Slick Willy" anyway today? He probably still can't come to terms that Obama derailed the Clinton machine and won the Nomination. Obama and his wife symbolically donated 2300$ to the Clinton Campaign to help offset the millions that her campaign is in debt. Obama also promised to help Clinton with much more of the financial hole she is in, which should be worth a few stump speeches by her, on his behalf. Seeing the way Clinton has been over the last few months has really got me thinking. Clinton herself must also realize the fact that if she was loose and natural like she has been of late all along, she would be the nominee. I still would not vote for her though.

Heston Would Be Very Happy

The Supreme Court ruled today that Americans have the right under the Constitution to own and keep handguns in their homes for self defense. Believe it or not, it's the first time the Supreme Court ever made a ruling on the meaning of gun rights under the Second Amendment. The Court voted 5-4 and struck down Washington D.C.'s ban on handguns. Writing for the majority opinion, Justice Antonin Scalia said; The Constitution does not permit "the absolute prohibition of handguns held and used for self-defense in the home." Scalia added that the handgun is Americans' preferred weapon of self defense because "it can be pointed at a burglar with one hand while the other hand dials the police." Back in April when legendary actor and long time President of the National Rifle Association Charlton Heston passed away, I wrote the article; "Champion Of The Second Amendment". It was part homage to Heston and part hysterical rant. To me the issue could not be more simple; Americans have a Constitutional right to own firearms, period. This fact is not, nor should it be, open to interpretation. How do I come to this conclusion? The answer is simple; I CAN READ! The Second Amendment of The Constitution reads "A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." We the People......that's us.
What part of "the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed", do the dissenters fail to understand. Is it that they fail to understand or simply do not care and want to remake America to suit their own agenda? In a dissent, Justice John Paul Stevens wrote that the majority "would have us believe that over 200 years ago, the Framers made a choice to limit the tools available to elected officials wishing to regulate civilian uses of weapons." Why is this moron even on the Supreme Court? That's exactly what the Framers of the Constitution sought to do, limit the power of elected officials and permit THE PEOPLE to retain that power you jackass! Justice Stephen Breyer wrote a separate dissent in which he said, "In my view, there simply is no untouchable constitutional right guaranteed by the Second Amendment to keep loaded handguns in the house in crime-ridden urban areas." Sure let the criminals have all of the guns in "crime-ridden urban areas" and leave families in their homes defenseless. Well that will sure help......THE CRIMINALS you $%#%#!!!! My blood pressure is spiking so I will calm down..Whew. What gets me going is the fact that the issue is really simple at heart and some still refuse to get it. Take for example, District of Columbia Mayor Adrian Fenty. He said "More handguns in the District of Columbia will only lead to more handgun violence." That is just plain crazy talk. The criminals are going to do whatever the hell they want. They are not waiting around saying "well I guess we will not knock over the liquor store today with that ban on handguns in place". The criminals will get their weapons illegally. Here is a crazy idea; let's work to get the guns out of the hands of the criminals and leave licensed gun owners alone. Well in spite of the narrow minded morons in this Country, today was still a victory. Good old Charlton Heston would have a big grin on his face right now, God rest his soul.

Tougher Sanctions For Iran

The European Union Nations approved new sanctions against Iran on Monday. The EU imposed additional economic and travel restrictions on a some Iranian companies and diplomats. The sanctions included measures against Iran's largest bank. This in response to the growing nuclear threat that Iran poses to the world. Someone who I have become a fan of, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, said that a nuclear armed Iran was "unacceptable". It is doubtful that this latest round of sanctions will have any effect on curbing Iran's nuclear ambitions. The World needs to get together right now and totally isolate Iran economically or the consequences will be dire. Only that level of commitment from the World will avert disaster. It is being widely reported that Israel is gearing up for a strike against Iran's nuclear facilities sometime in the near future. While I understand and support that action, I am also aware that it carries the danger of plunging the region and perhaps World, into a war. It's time for the United Nations to get serious on Iran and prove that they are still relevant today.
