taking the fight to them...

in order to properly express my outrage at the illegal immigration problem, i'm going to cancun for a long weekend... there, i feel better already..

para inglés presione dos

this week we've heard the alarms being sounded from democrat governors in the border states concerning illegal immigration.. bill richardson (d, nm) first sounded the alarm - soon followed by arizona's governor. (we'll get to her later) so, finally, we've sounded the alarm that there is a problem. there is growing criticism of the bush administration for the lack of focus on the borders.. some of us in border states have been highly critical of the president for his permissive policies for some time.. but it struck me today, as the gaza withdrawl continues on the other side of the world, are we facing the same situation in the united states today ? are we not in fact ceeding the american southwest to illegal mexican immigrants ? thus far it hasn't been an armed takeover, but it is a takeover. the demographics of the border states are changing dramatically. texas is now a minority majority state. arizona and california are completely over run.. recently, on a trip to california - while driving through santa cruz, the day labor force literally took over every corner of the street. it was as if we were driving through monterrey, not a somewhat nice surfing town just south of san fransicko. and if you talk to anyone in california, they will tell you the impact illegal immigration is having on the infrastructure of the state. the story is the same in arizona, new mexico, and texas. just outside of my building in downtown dallas, i can pick up enough day labor to attack the alamo again.. so are there some parallels to be drawn with the giving away of land in israel to the current land grab going on here in our own country ?? something to think about.. appeasing one part of the population for peace in israel, for votes in the usa.

now, back to arizona's governor - janet napolitano. she has followed bill richardson's lead (nm) in crying foul on federal immigration policy. she came out recently with highly critical statements of the administration and their policy on immigration. while i agree with her assessment of the federal policy, her own policy is nothing short of dismal. if ever there was a case of throwing stones in a glass house - let's look at her record as governor. janet has vetoed bills denying in-state tuition and day care for illegal aliens.. she has vetoed legislation allowing law enforcement to enforce immigration law. she also vetoed a law making english the official state language - which would have saved the state millions by not having to have documentation in 2 languages. she also vetoed legislation that would have banned the use of the matricula consular - an easy to forge identification document from mexico as official in the state. so needless to say, janet has a ways to go to be tough on immigration.. i'm guessing this is a politically expedient experiment that she is going to take on.. the democrats may have found the republican's achiles heel.. if they actually act tough on immigration, they will steal votes from the republican party..

freedom of depress

as i make my rounds through the mainstream media, i seem to have difficulty finding any coverage on 2 issues.. 2 issues that should the shoe be on the other foot, would be covered in 2 completely different manners. first, we have media whore cindy down in crawford.. making quite a scene for herself, fueled by the continuing, almost natalie holliway-like, coverage of her plight.. i thought to myself, where are the 1000's of families who are proud of their family service in the military.. where is the voice of the majority of the military on this subject. the latest polls i've seen show that 80%+ of all military families support the action in iraq. where is the voice of the majority in all of this coverage.. we all know where it is.. it's buried, ignored. those voices do not push forward the agenda of the major media outlets.. i look at people in my generation, they are now excited to have their own 'vietnam.' they get fed, day after day, lies and hyperbole from the lefty media to fuel their hatred of their own country.. while they happily protest, call names and (apparently) not go to work.. yet, this group slides farther and farther in to the minority.. almost unaware of the people surrounding them who disagree.. but should the shoe be on the other foot, and a family were to go have a vigil supporting the war, would they get the media circus ? would they get the support and free airtime ? absolutely not. the bias cannot be more thinly veiled.

and then there is the coverage of the able danger 'coverup' by the 9/11 commission. let's think back to how quickly cbs jumped on the forged documents on president bush.. let's remember how quickly newsweek ran with the gitmo torture (false) information.. yet, you cannot find a peep about this absolutely huge development. the 9/11 commission may have purposely buried material information about what caused the events of 9/11 ?? are you kidding me ?? that can't make the news ?? if newsweek can lead with bad information and 60 minutes can have a whole segment on a forgery, cannot the able danger information warrant a peep ?? apparently not. again, it's clear what happened when the shoe was on the other foot, but when the story is beneficial for this administration, the story is buried. fortunately, the american people see through this nonsense.. the declining viewership, sinking subscription numbers and falling advertising revenue tell the story.. yet, the lefties still deal in their own skewed world view, highly averse to the truth and oh so very loud with their mouths..

the end of an era..

moment of silence please.. calcutta is banning the rickshaw.

cindy sheehan update..

news flash: apparently cindy's antics have created some more domestic tremors - her husband of 28 years has filed for divorce.. details here

happy birthday, it was nice knowing you..

70 years ago we gained social security.. since then, the car, the airplane, the television have all improved. yet social security remains the same... i'm reasonably certain no one in my generation has any hope that social security will be around for our retirement.. but then again, most people in my generation won't be around for our own retirement..

do you know me... ?

you've probably heard her name bantered about in relationship to the 9/11 commission or the 'wall' her memo erected between the fbi and the cia.. but did you know that there now looks to be a purposeful relationship between the two ?? when jamie gorelick was placed on the 9/11 commission, many around the country cried foul.. how could this clinton insider, responsible for creating the wall of communication between agencies, be invited to be on this all important 9/11 commission. it's turning out that there were some pretty specific reasons she was chosen afterall. rep curt weldon, r-pa, has found some very disturbing oversights by the commission.. it turns out that the defense department, as a part of operation 'able danger' had identified mohammed atta along with 3 of his sidekicks back in 1999. as it turns out, some of the staffers on the 9/11 commission didn't find it neccessary to pass that on to the commission.

so let me get this straight - we had identified 4 of the hijackers in 1999, and that information was not deemed worthy to put in front of the commission ?!? but wait.. it turns out the information DID make it in front of the commission and they just ignored it. now why in the world would a commission ignore such information.. commission moutpiece al felzenberg first said the commission never saw this information, and that weldon was a crackpot. then, when that wouldn't float in the face of the truth, he changed his mind to say that well, maybe we did hear this name mohammed atta.. and now it's just that the information they had did not match the timeline they had constructed for themselves.. so, intelligence that conflicted with a commission of political partisans is just discarded.. neat.

let's examine a few things that have gone on since then - we had sandy burger (former clinton national security advisor), panties and bra full of papers sneaking out with classified documents.. (sandy, who was in the pocket of the chinese and the ultimate clinton insider) we have gorelick on the 9/11 commission - and we could infer, with no proof yet, that she tried to cover up this information because of this wall she constructed between intelligence organizations back in 1995.. and how does all of that roll up ?? well, we've got burger, arranging a campaign finance deal with china and gorelick puts the wall up to, in effect, put an end in to investigations in to those 'illegal' campaign contribution issues.. and with all of the kicking and screaming from other attorneys across the land, it became policy and we end up with the infrastructure that prevented the intelligence exchange that led to... but i digress.. and we could even possibly infer a little bit more on the china side - as they have just fielded their own AEGIS warships with 'stolen' (aquired from a front company that the navy did business with during the 92-00 timeframe) technology from the usa. just what was sandy getting out of that document repository anyway ?? so we maybe, could, possibly infer that there is something more to this than a simple oversight. the defense department has these terrorists under observation for 2 YEARS and can't pass the information to the FBI due to the gorelick wall. (not only couldn't pass it, there were lawyers who became involved and told them to put sticky notes over their faces.. to forget that they even know anything about them)

this has the potential to flare up nicely, however, i don't think we'll get much mainstream media coverage as it doesn't fit as nicely in to the news directors agenda.. keep an eye on curt weldon from pa., i have a feeling he's not going to let this go.. and where it ends up, well, it could be quite interesting.

today begins the forced removal of jewish settlements in gaza. this is the first give away of jewish land since israel first became a state in 1948. unfortunately, this action will do nothing but validate terrorism in the region. israel has held this land since 1967, after the 6 day war.. and now, caving in to international (and some internal) pressure, israel is giving up the gaza strip. this withdrawl is going to result in even more terrorist attacks, even more international pressure and even more jewish land given away. this is a disasterous policy for the jewish state. they will be squeezed more and more and their borders will eventually become indefensible. the palestenains, hiding behind their desire for an equal and separate state, truely hope for one thing - the eventual destruction of the jewish state altogether. there is no desire for an on-going dialog or relations. as a matter of fact, it's already been stated no jews can live in the new palestenian state, even if they chose to do so.. yet palestenians are welcomed in to israel to do business and commerce.. stopped only due to the ongoing suicide bombings. now, as israel forces out settlers, who have come from the four corners of the earth, all of the terror groups in the region are celebrating. hundreds of supporters of the militant islamic jihad group celebrated in gaza city on sunday, with gunmen firing in the air, and teens setting off firecrackers and distributing candy. the violent hamas group organized special midnight prayers of thanks at gaza mosques.. that right there should tell you all you need to know. the terrorists are happy.. and yet another bad day for the only democracy in the middle east.. unfortunately, one of what is destined to be many bad days for israel.

this entire cindy sheehan publicity stunt is leaving me thrououghly sick to my stomach.. this woman, disgracing her son's death for her own personal political ego.. shameful indeed. the veil of her 'greiving mother' act is transparent to say the least.. and now, as if her demands to meet with g-dub AGAIN weren't enough, she's now splashing her political opinions out for all to see.. first it was the president killing her son (note the first person implication) and now it's the damn jews who killed her son.. her statement:

"Am I emotional? Yes, my first born was murdered. Am I angry? Yes, he was killed for lies and for a PNAC Neo-Con agenda to benefit Israel. My son joined the Army to protect America, not Israel. Am I stupid? No, I know full-well that my son, my family, this nation, and this world were betrayed by a George Bush who was influenced by the neo-con PNAC agenda after 9/11.
We were told that we were attacked on 9/11 because the terrorists hate our freedoms and democracy...not for the real reason, because the Arab-Muslims who attacked us hate our middle-eastern foreign policy. That hasn't changed since America invaded and occupied fact it has gotten worse.You get America out of
Iraq and Israel out of Palestine and you'll stop the terrorism"

well now we've got it, she not only hates america, she hates the dadgum jews too. now how can the only democracy in the middle east be to blame for this ? she joins the ever growing group of people who think the jews have taken over the government and are running the usa. oh, and also responsible for 9/11 and everything else.. next, cindy will be burning books and gassing folks. truly amazing.. and if that wasn't enough, more of these folks with no jobs and a furvent hate for america are showing up in crawford.. so much that the president's neighbor decided to practice up for dove season and send the peace loving jew haters scrambling for cover.. (i hear they all chipped in to hire lawyers to keep him from shooting guns on his own property.. ok, maybe i made that up, but don't be surprised if it happens..) besides, i can't think of anything much better than a bunch of lefty peaceniks hanging out around rural texas for the opening of DOVE SEASON. so appropriate.

i'm curious where the mainstream media coverage is of all the families (including her own) that support the president and support the war and support what is going on in iraq. as a matter of fact, here is an IRAQI who is telling her to shush it.

oh, and lets not forget the statements from her family:

Sheehan Family Statement:
The Sheehan Family lost our beloved Casey in the Iraq War and we have been silently, respectfully grieving. We do not agree with the political motivations and publicity tactics of Cindy Sheehan. She now appears to be promoting her own personal agenda and notoriety at the the expense of her son’s good name and reputation. The rest of the Sheehan Family supports the troops, our country, and our President, silently, with prayer and respect.
Casey Sheehan’s grandparents, aunts, uncles and numerous cousins.

so, the most important thing here is to understand where sweet cindy is coming from -- she wants to progress her political agenda with the blood of her poor son. sickening & shameful.. she has championed the 'stealing of the election' in 2000 cry from the left.. she is actively involved in john conyers impeachment campaign against president bush.. read her open letter to president bush:

“It has been seven months since your ignorant and arrogant lack of planning for the peace murdered my oldest child. It has been two days since your dishonest campaign stole another election…but you all were way more subtle this time than in 2000, weren’t you? You hardly had to get the Supreme Court of the United States involved at all this week...”

“... You feel so proud of yourself for betraying the country again, don’t you? You think you are very clever because you pulled the wool over the eyes of some of the people again. You think that you have some mandate from God…that you can “spend your political capital” any way that you want. George you don’t care or even realize that 56,000,000 plus citizens of this country voted against you and your agenda. Still, you are going to continue your ruthless work of being a divider and not a uniter. George, in 2000 when you stole that election and the Democrats gave up, I gave up too. I had the most ironic thought of my life then: "Oh well, how much damage can he do in four years?" Well, now I know how much you have damaged my family, this country, and this world. If you think I am going to allow you another four years to do even more damage, then you truly are mistaken. I will fight for a true vote count and if that fails, your impeachment. Also, the impeachment of your Vice President...”

“...George, I must confess that I and my family worked very HARD to re-defeat you this time, but you refuse to stay defeated. Well, we are watching you very carefully. We are going to do everything in our power to have you impeached for misleading the American people into a disastrous war and for mis-using and abusing your power as Commander-in-Chief.”

having met with her once already, (when her tune was considerably different) - why would a president want to meet with someone like this again ?? and frankly, what makes her voice any more valid than the 1000's of others in the same shoes that disagree completely with her point of view ?? her son, who volunteered to be a brave soldier, would be saddened (to say the least) to see what should be a legacy of heroism marred by the misuse of his name to champion the causes he went to defeat..

don't be fooled by her outward stance, on the keith olberman show on msnbc (total audience 4) she said that she actually didn't want the president to meet with her.. what ?!

transcript: (and thanks to the laura ingraham show for bringing this to my attention)

Keith: “It’s pure politics, the nature of the media coverage you’re getting now…From the perspective of your protest there, in a way isn’t it really better if President Bush doesn’t meet with you?”
Sheehan:I would think so, yeah.. I think it’s great. If he were to come out right now, I think it would diffuse the momentum, but I don’t want to give them any hints. And, I think that’s something they’ve probably already thought about. But, we’re here, we’re committed and we’re staying. In fact, we’re staying here the whole month of August…..”

she now doesn't want the president to meet with her ?? so why is she in crawford again ?? publicity stunt, media whore.. ok, i remember again..
