This man could have been President

Posted by Sal on December 6, 2005

Much has been made of the remarks of John Kerry on Sunday where he compared our troops to Terrorists. My sister, as insightful as always, sent me this:

Since no one watches CBS, and since John Kerry’s opinion on ANYTHING is about as newsworthy as a day in the life of pond scum, I wasn’t sure if you heard about this. Ahhhh I get it…supporting the troops is now defined as slandering the troops while they are in harms way. And 2+2 = 5. If these reprehensible lies are not considered aiding and abetting the enemy, then nothing is.

Also, take note of the eerie parallel shared between the smut he spewed on Sunday, and his 1971 remarks before the Senate Foreign Relations committee:

“They told the stories of times that they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in the fashion reminiscent of Jen-giss [sic] Khan, not isolated incidents, but crimes committed on a day-to-day basis with a full awareness of officers at all leveled of command.”

It looks like the swiftboat bashing bandwagon just crashed and burned. These remarks from John Kerry are not only unpatriotic, they are antiAmericann.

And 59 million people wanted this man to be President.

Tories United

Posted by Mike on December 6, 2005

David Davis has offered his congratulations to the new Leader of the Opposition. Davis’ words represent more than mere good sportsmanship. This is a dramatic shift for a party which has been hopelessly divided for over a decade. Margaret Thatcher AND John Major are on board.

Tony Blair has been a courageous leader and trusted friend to the United States. Unfortunately, he is not running again. As long as Labour is in power, there remains a risk that some socialist nutjob could take over their party’s leadership. This would undoubtedly harm the “special relationship” between the U.S. and the U.K. because leftists can’t stand a strong America teaming up with a strong Britain. The “special relationship” will remain as strong as ever if David Cameron becomes Prime Minister.

Liberals on Abortion: What Exactly Do They Mean by Mainstream?

Posted by Mike on December 6, 2005

I have always respected liberal law professor Jonathan Turley because of his intellectual honesty. He was one of the few liberals in America who refused to parrot Clinton’s spin during impeachment. Now the pro-choice Turley explains why parents should have the right to know if their child decides to have an abortion and why those who oppose such a reasonable restriction are the ones outside the mainstream.

An overwhelming majority of Americans favor parental notification requirements for children wishing to have an abortion. Remember Turley’s analysis the next time Chuckie Schmuckie Schumer tries to brand Judge Alito as “outside the mainstream” for dissenting in Casey. Judges like Alito are only outside the mainstream to those who are sitting on the far left bank.

David Cameron to Lead British Conservative Party

Posted by Mike on December 6, 2005

David Cameron has won the Conservative party leadership election. This will be a breath of fresh air for a conservative party which has more or less been humiliated in three consecutive general elections. Cameron will articulate a conservative vision acceptable to British voters and do it with a smile on his face. Look out Gordon Brown.

ETA Terrorism in Spain

Posted by Mike on December 6, 2005

Sky News reports that five bombs exploded in Madrid following warnings by the Basque terrorist organization ETA. Thankfully no one was injured.

In March 2004 when the Spanish responded to an Al Qaeda terror attack by giving the terrorists exactly what they wanted. Right now Zapatero is Spanish for Chamberlain but it is not too late for Spain to find its inner Churchill. Hopefully it will be sooner than later.

Limbaugh: Keeping Chafee a Mistake

Posted by Mike on December 6, 2005

The all-knowing Maha Rushie wonders why the Republicans would repeat the Specter mistake? Hopefully we won’t. Re-electing Lincoln Chafee will only cause problems down the road. Laffey for Senate! Chafee for Retirement.

Question About Fahrenheit 9/11

Posted by Mike on December 6, 2005

Since I would never pay money to see anything by Michael Moore, I never saw Fahrenheit 9/11. Someone told me there was a scene where he depicted Iraq under Saddam Hussein as a kite-flying paradise. My question is: did Moore include anything like this woman’s story in his movie?

Madam Secretary

Posted by Sal on December 6, 2005

Back from vacation and refreshed, I’ve begun my jump back into the news cycle. I must say it was a nice vacation not to pay attention to the MSM and news in general.

While catching up on the weeks news, I’ve been very impressed with the tough talk of Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Both on the War on Terror and the control of the Internet, Condoleezza has expressed in strong terms the interests of the United States. This is what a Secretary of State is supposed to do. Keep it up Condi!
