And the hypocrisy continues...

And the hypocrisy continues...

I read about sexism at Michelle Malkin’s blog.

Well, after listening to a local radio broadcast and to Glenn Beck’s radio show today, the attacks are beginning on Sarah Palin.

And the surprising thing is that they are making statements against things that they tend to argue for.

I have heard the sexual references and the chauvinistic remarks… FROM DEMOCRATS!!!!!!!!!

Furthermore, on Beck’s program I heard two calls from WOMEN who expressed “concern” about Palin’s ability to handle the job of Vice President while maintaining her responsibility as a wife and mother, and as a mother of a special needs child.

How ridiculous!

Democrats saying disparaging things about a career woman? What’s next? Are they going to start expressing concern about federal dollars being spent of feminine hygiene products?

Get over it, libtards! Your hypocrisy seems to grow exponentially with your ignorance!

McCain-Palin 2008

It's been confirmed by the McCain camp that Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has been picked as John McCain's running mate.

I think that this is actually a very smart move in terms of a national election.

Sarah Palin, VP Candidate

However, I am concerned about a few things…. Even beyond some of the controversy she is currently facing in Alaska (Thanks, Syrin).

Well, about that controversy. I wonder how accurate it is since she is now the pick. I can’t imagine that the McCain team would pick someone with a bunch of potentially damaging baggage knowing that the campaign could be derailed.

Beyond that, I am wondering about this choice being able to shun off the “inexperienced” retorts from the Obama camp. It would be logical for the dems to play that card since it was rightfully played to them.

I am also concerned about her ability to stand up to Biden in the debate. Truth is truth and facts won’t lie… and what I have seen from Palin’s communication skills is impressive. But Biden’s experience, albeit liberal, may mean more to the electorate.

My main concern is that Sarah Palin is 100% valuable up to and on Election Day. The elements she brings to the ballot are overwhelmingly great for McCain. But is she truly the one to be ready to assume the Oval Office should the need arise?

Over all, I give the McCain camp and Governor Palin herself a thumps up!

Is he going to be the maverick again?

John McCain is set to announce his VP pick today at 12 noon Ohio time. Most of the speculation is around Sarah Palin right now. This is based on a plane that came in from AK where the pilot gavea possibly could be ID to Palin and her family.

Will this be the new McCain/Palin campaign ad?


In a post HRCN wrap up email, I made some appreciative remarks and then shared how I came upon Blog Talk Radio. One of the recipients of that email said I should blog the remarks regarding Josh Allem and the JPA Live Show. So, here is my tribute to Joshua P. Allem.

I would like to say a few words about Josh.

I first was introduced to Joshua Allem when I was starting to campaign for Fred Thompson. I was looking for audio and video clips to use and I came across this clip where I swore it was Andy Griffith talking about Fred Thompson. And once I started to listen I half expected to hear a connection between Fred Thompson and a “funny lookin’ little punkin” on a cow pasture. Don’t believe me? Compare the voices in the following:

Anyway, once I got used to the idea that it wasn’t actually Andy a gittin ready to `splain sumthin to Barney, I really got into it. And this guy was poignantly topical and even very funny about the whole thing. I especially liked his bit about the generic senator telling someone what time it was.

Well, I didn’t want to take anyone’s thunder and so I found Josh’s email and told him I wanted to post it at my MySpace blog. He responded in a very humbled way and told me it was fine. You can view that MySpace blog here.

The next thing you know, Josh and I are emailing back and forth and I had discovered his outstanding blog.

Then in February of this year, I started listening to the JPA Live Show.

Had I known about it sooner, I probably would have listened sooner. I remember that Skye and Snooper were on and I think Doug and Wild Phil as well. Then one night I decided to call in and tell his show about my concerns over the national security issue of windfarms at our borders.

Once that ice was broken, I have been harassing his show and its listeners ever since.

Further more, he has a new show regarding the Bible, FOUNDING WORD.

Then I realized there was a whole BTR community of people who, for the most part, felt the same way I did about God and Politics. I started to listen to Political Pistachio, ATW, Halls of Valhalla, Jungle Politics, and Media Lizzy among others. And I really feel welcome no matter where I call.

But it all started with this guy who had this great Texas drawl with whom I had one thing in common. Whether we realize it or not, we do reach people and as long as we do it with integrity and honesty, our BTR family will continue to grow!

Thanks, Josh!

The Speech That Changed Me Forever

During the Heading Right Convention Night, I was given a very humbling introduction by Danger Girl.

In that intro, she mentioned a speech by Ronald Reagan that changed forever the way I looked at politics. That speech is below.

It was 23 years ago and I was 16. My dad, who was still active duty military at the time, had a friend who was the logistics coordinator for the military aircraft used by the President and Vice-President, and he was able to get my dad two tickets to the Prelude to Independence celebration going on in Williamsburg, Virginia. I still have that ticket.

Prelude to Independence ticket

My dad could have taken my mom or even another friend, but he checked with my school and was able to have this counted as a field trip, as long as I would write about it for my history class.

So, on Thursday morning, May 30th, 1985, my dad and I put on coat and tie and drove from our home in Poquoson, VA to Colonial Williamsburg. I was overwhelmed by the security. I remembered about the attempt on Reagan’s life in DC, but I never really expected to have to be screened in such a way. I had to show my military dependent ID and my student ID. I had to let them frisk me and run the wand around me to ensure I wasn’t dangerous. As a 16 year old, whose thoughts were normally on rock and roll and the fairer sex, I was getting a bit agitated. But there wasn’t a way I could tell my dad to get us out of there.

Mind you, my parents have always been conservative in their politics. They never really talked about who they voted for but mainly about the issues of the day. At that time, I was discovering my love for practicing and performing music and was starting to set my goals in that direction. My dream was to replace Doc Sevrinsen on the Tonight Show. So Politics and politicians never really spoke to me….at least I never really wanted to hear them. Then along came Ronald Reagan. With him as President, I began to see a love of country and pride in what America could do. Yet I was still too young to vote so I just went along with the good feeling.

Back to Williamsburg in 1985. It was a warm and sunny morning and in my coat and tie, I was sweating. We got there early and had been seated and waiting for over an hour. My dad did his best to engage me with conversation about things of family and school but I was getting impatient. Then the announcement came and President Reagan took the dais.

Ronald Reagan spoke of his tax proposal for this new term. There were points made that inspired pride and points that brought laughter. He was the great communicator after all.

As I stated above, I was to write something for my history class. Well, taxes weren’t inspiring me much. After all, my measly after school and weekend yard work job was under the table, so I never saw anything taken away from me yet. I worked hard and was paid.

Then President Ronald Wilson Reagan said something that struck me to my core. In fact, I heard his words and they echoed around my noggin again and again. I still remember those words to this day:

“Our forefathers fought a revolution for two reasons: to give liberty to a naturally independent people and to secure, in the words of a Burgess who met here, ‘...Prosperity in the Community and Security to Individuals.’ The idea of freedom impelled them; it intoxicated them. And it is freedom that impels us still.”


Taxes started to mean something to me; politically, historically, and PERSONALLY!

I had a new respect for what my dad did and that he was working hard to not only support his family but to have his money taken away from him to support the government as well.

I realized then that republicanism was for the PEOPLE and liberalism was for the government. I knew what I wanted to write for school. I don’t remember exactly what it was but it started with the quote above and continued with the history of federal taxation. And I believe my final statement was something on the order of: Prosperity and security have to go hand in hand in America. This nation can only survive and succeed if we take them as equals and not sacrifice one for the other by over taxing the population.

From that moment on, I knew that I was a conservative when it came to politics. I knew that when I went into the ballot box for the first time in 1988, that my vote wasn’t just for me but for the nation and for America’s place in the world.


Remarks at the "Prelude to Independence" Celebration in Williamsburg, Virginia
May 30, 1985

Thank you, ladies and gentlemen, Governor Robb, Senator Trible, Mayor Walker, and distinguished members here of the Williamsburg Foundation, the officials of that organization, and you ladies and gentlemen.

It is very good to return to this city which is so closely associated with the birth of the American Republic. Boston is called the Cradle of Liberty, Philadelphia is where the Liberty Bell first rang, but Williamsburg, too, has an honored place in our history and our hearts. Because, as you have been told, here a practical plan for American self-government and a declaration which became the basis for the Bill of Rights of our Constitution were written, endorsed, and sent out to the world by the Virginia Legislature.

Here the arguments against unjust taxation rang out like a firebell in the night, and the chief arguer, Patrick Henry, gave our movement for independence the one thing it needed to become a revolution -- he gave it passion.

And here, through long hours of great debate in the capitol behind me, the people of the colony evolved irresistibly from British subjects to American patriots.

And so, I'm happy and honored to speak in Williamsburg today. For I, too, mean to speak of liberty and a practical plan to increase its measure in our country. I wish to speak also of the philosophical underpinnings of that plan, for whatever happens to it, I mean for it to be understood.

Two nights ago I unveiled our proposal to revolutionize the Federal tax code. I spoke of the system as it is now, and as we wish it to be. But just for a moment today I want to note how our modern tax system evolved from a modest attempt to raise modest revenues to the behemoth to which we are currently beholden.

The Federal income tax only began in 1913. At that time some strange things happened. When it was being debated in the Congress one man spoke prophetically -- or I should say, very honestly when he said, ``We don't need this tax for government's needs. We need it for government's wants.'' And he was pretty prophetic, but there was another man that was almost laughed out of public life and public office, a Senator who said, ``If we pass this amendment, we may very well see the day when the government could think it could take as much as 10 percent of a person's earnings.'' [Laughter] They thought that was a pretty ridiculous statement.

Well, this income tax was instituted because the Federal Government needed more money to operate because there was a widespread feeling that the rich ought to contribute to the system that made their riches possible. It was a system aimed almost exclusively at the wealthy, a class tax, as opposed to a mass tax.

The first tax rates were low. The 1913 income tax imposed a top personal rate of 6 percent. And you had to report an income of more than a half a million dollars a year to pay it. The poor and the middle class paid nothing. The personal exemption was $3,000. Now you know why they're called ``the good old days.'' [Laughter]
During the First World War tax rates were increased, but they were relaxed again during the 1920's. Right up until the eve of World War II, the Federal income tax was still a tax limited to the wealthy. It affected only 4 or 5 million people, and their taxes yielded, in all, less than 20 percent of the Nation's revenues.

But during and after the war a great change came -- tax rates were increased, exemptions were reduced, and inflation brought more people into the tax structure. Withholding was introduced for the first time, and suddenly just about every working American was paying the Federal income tax. And the tax suddenly was the largest single component of government revenues.

What followed, we know too well -- the tax system began to grow and grow, rates were pushed higher, more and more people found themselves paying more and more money. Ironies abounded. As the tax system grew bigger and more powerful, it also grew more incompetent. And as it demanded more to pay for programs to better our lives, it became more heartless.

Seventy-two years after its inception, what is our Federal tax system? It's a system that yields great amounts of revenue, yes, but even greater amounts of discontent, disorder, and disobedience. It's a system in which the top personal tax rate rose to 94 percent. And it only came down from those heights when a young man named John Kennedy decided some time back that while it's all right for the Federal Government to be your partner, it's not quite fair that he be your boss.

It's a system from which no full-time wage earner is exempt. Now, almost everyone, no matter what their circumstances or their special needs, must pay. In fact, so many pay so much that someone has figured out that it takes the average taxpayer until almost May every year before he starts working for himself. Up till then, he's working for the government.

It's a system that allows an exemption of barely over $1,000 a year for each child born into a family, an exemption so utterly out of touch with the realities of everyday life that it serves as a metaphor for exactly how ridiculous the entire structure is.

It's a system that increasingly treats our earnings as if they were the personal property of the Government, with decent citizens called before the Internal Revenue Service to answer for their income and expenditures and show their papers and their proof in a drama that is as common as it is demeaning. Wasn't there a line a couple of hundred years ago about being safe in your books and your records?

Well, it's a system so utterly complex and ultimately inexplicable that half the time the tax professionals themselves aren't sure what the rules are -- a system that even Albert Einstein is said to have admitted he couldn't begin to fathom. You know, it's said that his hair didn't look that way until after he experienced his first tax form. [Laughter]

It's a system that is antigrowth and antiproductive for it discourages the very virtues that make a man and woman valued contributors to society. You know this if you've ever worked overtime to pay for your child's braces. The money you earn is taxed at so high a rate as to render your extra efforts almost totally without point or profit.

It is, finally, a system whose most serious sin may be its most subtle for it seems so rigged, so unfair, that it corrupts otherwise honest people by encouraging them to cheat.

Thirty and forty years ago you didn't hear people brag at social get-togethers about how they got their tax bill down by exploiting this loophole and engineering that credit. But now you do. And it's not considered bad behavior. After all, goes this thinking, what's immoral about cheating a system that is itself a cheat? That isn't a sin, it's a duty.

Our Federal tax system is, in short, utterly impossible, utterly unjust, and completely counterproductive. It's earned a rebellion, and it's time we rebelled.

We must move and move now for all the reasons I've named and more. The current system just doesn't work anymore. The underground economy and the cult of cheating prove that this is so. What to do? Well, we took our first step toward a second American revolution in 1981 when we lowered tax rates for every individual in this country. This increased our economic freedom and sparked one of the greatest economic expansions in our nation's history.

But now is the time to take the second step, the historic step for America's tax plan. Now is the time to turn our tax system around once and for all and make it more just, more equitable, more comprehensible. Now is the time to create a tax system that will encourage and not penalize the creation of wealth and jobs. Now is the time, in short, to get the Federal Government off our backs and out of our way.
You're familiar with our plan. We propose to simplify the rate structure down to just three rates -- 15, 25, and 35 percent. We propose to increase the personal exemption by almost a hundred percent, from just over $1,000 to $2,000 for every taxpayer and dependent with a provision to increase it still more if inflation occurs. We propose to end unproductive tax shelters so that no one will be able to hide in the havens that privilege builds. But we will retain those few tax advantages that speak directly to how Americans live their lives and how the American economy operates. For instance, the mortgage interest deduction stays for the house that you own and live in, and along with that, no less than $5,000 in other interest expenses would still be deductible.

We propose to lower the top corporate income tax rate from the current 46 percent to 33 percent, and we've proposed a new minimum tax to deal with those corporations and individuals that have managed not to pay any tax at all.

Now, you might see the present tax structure as a hornet's nest. Our plan is an attempt to burn away the webs and the nest and let the Sun shine in to start new, start clean, and start over. Is this long overdue reform revolutionary? I believe it is, but we conservatives don't launch revolutions lightly. There must be a clear and compelling need, and the reform that's proposed must bear within it the promise to better the lives of all of our citizens, and the reform must be achievable.

Well, our tax reform plan of 1985 satisfies those requirements. Beyond that, it will go a long way towards satisfying America's hunger for justice, thirst for opportunity, and search for freedom. By lowering the highest tax rates on individuals and businesses, we encourage the growth of our economy. Lower tax rates, of course, increase the after tax wages for additional work. And so, people will be able to profit once again from working overtime or at a second job. Lower tax rates will also increase the aftertax return on savings and investment. And so, people will tend to save and invest more. This will provide the money the economy needs to build additional factories or buy more machinery.

These are not just economic facts. What I am speaking about is a profound public good. For when a society has high levels of economic growth, most everyone benefits, especially the poor. More jobs are created, there's more money to spend on medical care and education, the standard of living increases, and all of this enhances the quality of life.

By simplifying the rate structure itself and by eliminating the devices by which the powerful evade their responsibilities, we ensure that people in the same circumstances will pay the same levels of tax. We'll ensure that those now earning lower incomes will not find themselves paying a greater percentage of their income in taxes than those earning higher incomes. We'll ensure that from the hard streets of the cities to the soft green hills of the suburbs the people of America will pay their fair share and no more.

So, I believe the virtues of our proposal are clear. You'll know that your neighbor is paying roughly what you are, that no one will be able to rig the system to his benefit. You'll know that the tax rates themselves won't creep up and mug you just as you start to succeed in the world. And we'll all know that those least able to pay will pay little or nothing.

But what is the broader purpose of our tax proposal? Well, I'm glad to be standing in front of the House of Burgesses as I address that question. The members who spoke in this capital said no to taxes because they loved freedom. They argued, ``Why should the fruits of our labors go to the Crown across the sea?'' Well, in the same sense, we ask today: Why should the fruits of our labors go to that Capitol across the river?

You know, we have a saying among some of us there in Washington: We're going to stick to it. If I sound like I'm talking about government as something else, I am. When we who are now there start talking about government as ``we'' instead of ``they'' we've been there too long. [Laughter]

When you read our tax code you realize that somehow we got lost along the way. Somewhere along the line, we stopped understanding that people worked not for the government, but for themselves; that they get up every morning and go out into the world to earn their bread, not to support a government, but to support their families. We, the citizens of the United States, have got to get public law back in line with private imperatives.

I see all of you out here and I'm sure that most of you have a wallet in your pocket or your purse. Just think of what you have in that wallet, how you earned it, and what you want to spend it on. That's your money. That's your effort. That's your freedom there. The disposition of that money belongs, by rights, to you.

I want a tax system that keeps as much of that money in your wallet as possible. The primary reason is moral. It's your money, after all. But the secondary reason is practical. You'll do more for the economy with it, and you'll do more to benefit your fellow citizen with it than the government will.

Now, I'm going to be speaking a great deal about tax reform over the next few weeks and months. And I expect it to be challenging. It's a shrewd turn of the American people that, when you announce a plan to help them, they stand back and scrutinize it and approach with a question: Now, how are you going to hurt me this time? [Laughter] Well, this is not an unreasonable question. So many times the American people have been promised better and been delivered worse. But I tell you from the bottom of my being, this is a plan that's going to help our country by helping every individual in it.

Our tax proposal will not increase the deficit; it is revenue neutral. It is not a tax increase; in fact, it's designed to be the first step toward lower tax rates in the future. When you simplify a thing, make its lines clear and clean, you make it much less vulnerable to quiet mischief and selfish tinkering. So, if some Congress of the future gets it in its head to increase taxes -- to raise the lowest personal tax rate from 15 percent to something higher -- the public will immediately see what is happening and understand what is happening. And they will rise up and resist, and they will be heard.

In a way what I'm trying to say is an unclean, unsound structure is vulnerable to mischief. When the house is a mess and everything's chaos, you're not likely to notice when something is missing. But when the house is clean and designed with balance you tend to notice if somebody tries to cart off the furniture. [Laughter]

Our forefathers fought a revolution for two reasons: to give liberty to a naturally independent people and to secure, in the words of a Burgess who met here, ``. . . Prosperity in the Community and Security to Individuals.'' The idea of freedom impelled them; it intoxicated them. And it's freedom that impels us still.

History's not a static thing. History moves; it never stops. And the American Revolution continues as we continue to push back the barriers to freedom. We, like the patriots of yesterday, are struggling to increase the measure of liberty enjoyed by out fellow citizens. We're struggling, like them, for self-government -- self-government for the family, self-government for the individual and the small business and the corporation.

And so, we offer this tax proposal of 1985 in the name of growth and fairness. We offer it to ensure generations of economic power for the citizens of this free and vital nation. We're doing it in the name of our children, and we're doing it in the memory of those towering souls who walked these streets and met in this capitol and together wrested justice from the heart of oppression. We offer this plan in memory of the patriots who took a handful of demoralized little colonies and invented a nation. We're doing it to continue their work.

I ask for your help. Without it, nothing can be accomplished; but with it, everything is possible. And so, in the truest sense, this great effort -- America's tax plan -- is in your hands. And for that I'm truly thankful. And I can only urge: America, go for it!

Thank you. Thank you, and God bless you. And thank you for inviting me. It's been wonderful to be here.

Thank you very much.

Note: The President spoke at 10:36 a.m. at the Colonial Capitol Building. The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation sponsored the celebration.

"The Hope of Choice" - Transcrips of my HRCN speech

The following is my speech from the Heading Right Convention Night on August 26, 2008. You can listen to both segments at the links below:

I was honored to receive a very humbling introduction by Tara, AKA Danger Girl and her comments start at about 28:00 minutes into the JPA Live segment of the convention.

The Hope of Choice

Good evening ladies and gentlemen. It is my distinct honor and privilege to speak to you tonight.

First I would like to praise and thank God Almighty and pray to give Him the ultimate honor and glory in the following words.

Tonight I want to talk to you about hope.

Hope is defined in two ways: As a noun, it is the feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best. As a verb, it is to look forward to with desire and reasonable confidence. In its origin, some etymologists even connect hope to the word hop…as in leaping to expectation.

But right now, in America, hope has been bantered around so much that its meaning has been disconnected from the American heart. Hope is currently in use as a campaign slogan. Furthermore, this slogan is indicative of the candidate it represents. You see, to the Democratic party, hope is an empty word that they want us to believe in because that would mean that this great nation isn’t the best and hasn’t been worthy of our loyalty.

But to me, and many of my fellow conservatives, hope has become more than just a campaign slogan from the opposition. It has become a klaxon, a red alert, a call to arms. In 1775, Patrick Henry spoke, “it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts.”

You see, I believe this nation has been, is and will be the greatest nation this world has ever known. The “great experiment” that was born 232 years ago has long shown true success. By God’s grace, we have survived so very much, much more than other, longer-lived nations could. And that is what gives me hope. Not hope to change everything at the expense of the fruition of our greatest strides or even our tremendous struggles. But hope to continue the great successes we have had, hope to venture into and conquer he unknown and hope that we can and will improve upon those things in which there is always room for improvement.

In this year’s election we can secure prosperity and security by doing our duty at the ballot. And because prosperity and security are potentially so untenable if the liberals gain the white house, it is imperative for every Conservative and Republican to cast a vote for Senator John McCain.

I will choose and trust John Sydney McCain. I absolutely trust him over Barack Obama in two key areas.
1. McCain has promised to nominate Supreme Court judges that will respect the constitution, and not legislate from the bench.
2. McCain will deal with the war on terror in a way that will keep America safe. Of the two candidates, if such a horrific situation arises, John McCain is the only one who has had the life experiences to handle another surprise terrorist attack similar or worse to 9/11.

Barack Obama has placed himself in the light as a deity of destiny. Yet like Fortuna, the goddess of fate, Barack Obama is worshipped as a symbol of blessing by some but in truth is a capricious demagogue with a life surrounded by dark and evil people.

As with most demagogues under the banner of liberalism, the issues are again ignored in favor of an idol. It seems that more and more people tend to think that as long as the idol gets the power, the issues will be resolved. Consequently, the only time that happens is in totalitarian governments. And the result is the loss of liberty and even life.

Look at how great America truly is. This great country has again and again risen to greatness because of how its people dealt with the issues of their respective times. It has been about how individuals rose up to meet obstacles head on with a singularly AMERICAN determination to make the fight matter for the country and its future.

The democrats want increasing power to manage the government, the states, the counties, the towns, the homes…and even the individual. Barack Obama and his liberal contemporaries not only want you to look to the government for all of your answers but also want to make sure that you will not have any non-governmental resources to access…. including yourself.

You see, my friends, we do have the hope of choice right here and right now. And that hope can only be answered by casting a vote for John McCain.

There are some conservatives who think this nation will be better served by not voting or voting for a third party candidate so that the next election around, Conservatism will again be a rallying cry that will be answered. However…

We’re not talking about doing that during a peace time where the threat to American security is non-existent or even minor. And we are also not talking about a democratic candidate like Mondale, Hart, Gephardt, Bradley, Kerry, Edwards or even Gore.

Were talking about a time when American security and prosperity are at the precipice of remaining strong or falling to the whims of the most liberal senator on record should he become president.

This is Barack Hussein Obama we’re really talking about. And there is too much at stake in the safety and security of American lives to allow the election of a Marxist as president to prove a point. To me, proving the point to the voters that a left leaning government is a bad thing should not be at the risk of the very lives of those voters.

Barack Obama, the true Obama would show who he really is as president: a man who was raised with the teachings of Islam, a man who was mentored by Marxists, a man who thinks that evil dictators can be convinced to behave, a man with the most liberal voting record in American history.

In other words, a vote for a third party candidate or not voting at all may send a message to Republicans that they need to return to and embrace the conservative tenets that this country does need. But those choices would essentially also be an immediate and resounding vote:
- FOR Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong-il, and Hugo Rafael Chávez Frías
- FOR abortion on demand, the eradication of traditional marriage and family, and the elimination of freedom of religion
- FOR a weak national security and defense
- FOR a healthcare system that will kill more people that it will truly and fully help
- FOR further American dependence on other nations for energy and resources and a cessation to utilizing the guaranteed resources we already have.
- FOR a maliciously permanent change in the right of citizens to bear arms
- FOR a realistic resurgence of communism as a potential form of government in this country

John McCain DOES understand executive leadership by the constraints of the Constitution. He DOES have a proven understanding of what it means to act as commander-in-chief. And he DOES believe that a republican form of government is the best hope for America.

Alexander Hamilton said, “A nation which can prefer disgrace to danger is prepared for a master, and deserves one.” And if we choose disgrace on election day by letting Barack Obama win, then a master IS what we will have in the white house.

Like him or not, want him or not. John McCain is still a far better choice than risking the loss of what the founding fathers died for by electing a candidate who has promised to destroy it by his proposed executive actions and decisions.

We do have the hope of choice, not because of hope itself, but because the choice we make will truly determine the hope of America.

Thank you and May Almighty God be forever praised as He blesses this great nation and its people. Good night.

Grand Poobah Graham Responds....finally

Senator Lindsey Graham

I finally received a response from Senator Lindsey Graham to my letter regarding the “Gang of Ten”

It is safe to say that I am not very satisfied with the letter, however, I will note that Senator Graham has been and is on the campaign trail for John McCain and may not have had time to specifically address my concerns. I just hope he doesn’t continue that attitude around election time.

Here is the letter he sent:
Graham Response page 1

Graham Response Page 2

The text of the letter follows:

Dear Scott:

Thank you for contacting me with your concerns on rising gas prices I appreciate the opportunity to hear from you on this issue.

I understand the burden that the price of gas is having on American families. The price of gas has changed the every day lives of many South Carolinians by raising the cost of everything from buying groceries, commuting to work and summer travel. As a nation we need to produce more oil, consume less, and explore the next generation of vehicle fuel.

The first step we must take is to drill for more domestic oil and end our dependence on foreign oil. I am a co-sponsor of S. 3202 which allows coastal states the option to explore for oil and natural gas offshore and lifts a federal moratorium on oil shale in western states. It also provides incentives for plug-in electric cars and trucks so that we no longer need to use as much gasoline to power our vehicles. I am frustrated that a vote on this common sense bill to lower gas prices has been repeatedly blocked from consideration by my colleagues on the other side of the aisle.

Partisan bickering will not help South Carolinians pay for high gas prices. That is why I am working with a bipartisan group in the United States Senate in order to address the rising cost of energy. We recently proposed a plan called the New Energy Reform Act of 2008 which contains provisions on offshore drilling, spent nuclear fuel recycling, promotes new technologies and conservation, and requires the oil companies to pay fair market prices for oil leases and drilling rights. Our proposal is not perfect, but it is a bipartisan start on the road to a comprehensive energy strategy leading our nation to independence from foreign oil.

Consequently, I voted to stay in session during the Senate’s August recess in order to consider energy policy, however, this resolution was not agreed to. Congress should not be on vacation while Americans continue to suffer from escalating gas prices. I believe that the Speaker of the House and the Senate Majority Leader should reconvene the House and Senate to deal with this issue.

Conservation is another cornerstone in our efforts to lower gas prices. I have joined 26 senators to introduce legislation, S. 339, that would reduce our dependency on foreign oil by 10 million barrels per day by 2031 by utilizing alternative energy sources and expanding conservation programs. S. 339 sets targets for manufacturers to produce flexible fuel vehicles, alternative fueled vehicles, hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and fuel cell vehicles or other qualified vehicles.

In the long term we must invest in new technologies like hydrogen. I created the Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Caucus in the United States Senate and believe that with increased investment, hydrogen holds the potential to power the next generation of automobiles.

We have already authorized over $3.5 billion to mobilize our national laboratories, universities, and the private sector to research and develop new hydrogen technologies. This funding has led to major gains but much more work needs to occur before the technology is ready for the market.

I am working hard to enact a comprehensive solution to high gas prices. Only through this type approach can we reduce the burden on hard working American families. If I can be of service to you or your family in the future, please do not hesitate to call on mc.

Doesn't anyone besides me remember this???

I guess 20 years is enough of a buffer time to claim memory loss, but....

Joe Biden has already run as a Democratic presidential candidate (1988 election year), formally declaring his candidacy in 1987.

He received incredible attention as the man for the job even sometimes over the front runners of that cycle.

But in September 1987, the campaign ran into serious trouble when he was accused of plagiarizing a speech by Neil Kinnock, the leader of the British Labour Party at that time. Though Biden had usually credited the original author in all speeches but one, the one where he failed to make mention of the originator was caught on video. (I’m still looking for it)

It was also discovered that as a first-year law student at Syracuse Law School, Biden had plagiarized a law review article in a class paper he wrote. Though the dean of the law school in 1988 as well as Biden's former professor played down the incident of plagiarism, they did find that Biden drew "chunks of heavy legal prose directly from" the article in question. Biden said the act was inadvertent due to his not knowing the proper rules of citation, and Biden was permitted to retake the course after receiving a grade of F.
So far I see a logical choice for Obama to pick Biden:

Biden also released at the same time the record of his grades as an undergraduate which were C's and D's with the exception of two A's in physical education, one B in a course on English writers and an F in ROTC during his first three semesters. His grades improved later in his undergraduate career but were unexceptional.

Further, when questioned once about his grades in law school Biden had claimed falsely to have graduated in the "top half" of his class, (when he actually graduated 76th in a class of 85) that he had attended on a full scholarship, and had received three degrees. In fact he had received two majors, History and Political Science, and a single B.A., as well as a half scholarship based on financial need.
Based on the criticisms the dems have had for Dubya, doesn’t it seem odd that they would tout change and yet pick a guy whose academic record seemingly imitates that of the guy dems hate most?

Faced with these revelations, Biden withdrew from the nomination race in September of 1987, saying his candidacy had been overrun by "the exaggerated shadow" of his mistakes.

Oh, my! Barack Obama has really gone after change with Biden. I am still waiting to see how “hope” comes into play with this one.

so, Biden it is

Okay, folks,

I am really getting miffed at the major TV news outlets as they have covered the great revelation of Biden as Obama’s running mate.

The coverage can be compared to how Groundhog Day is treated. The media awaits a rodent to emerge from his hole and thus predict the seasonal weather for the next six weeks. On Friday, August 22, 2008, the American people were forced to watch images of the various veep candidates’ homes as they awaited the announcement to report.

I thought watching a white Ford Bronco on the L.A. freeway was boring but this was ridiculously sleep inducing. Was the Obamessiah’s decision and selection THAT important?

The way things were going, I was really hoping Puxatawny Phil was going to come out of Biden’s door, flip the bird to the cameras and go back inside for four more years of the GOP.

The tallies are in

Although I couldn't find any report other than on cable tv or, Joseph Biden has been selected as Obama's Running Mate.

Now if this is just a hoax to stir the pot, then I sincere;y apologize for reporting incorrectly.

Go get `em, Lizzy!!!

It's time for an Angry one

I hope to God that we still have some military commanders who have this attitude about our nation’s role in the world. I realize that Dr. Strangelove is a dark comedy, but this does apply:

Read the dialog below the video:

"Well, boys, I reckon this is it — nuclear combat toe to toe with the Rooskies. Now look, boys, I ain't much of a hand at makin' speeches, but I got a pretty fair idea that something doggone important is goin' on back there. And I got a fair idea the kinda personal emotions that some of you fellas may be thinkin.' Heck, I reckon you wouldn't even be human bein's if you didn't have some pretty strong personal feelin's about nuclear combat. I want you to remember one thing, the folks back home is a-countin' on you and by golly, we ain't about to let 'em down. I tell you something else, if this thing turns out to be half as important as I figure it just might be, I'd say that you're all in line for some important promotions and personal citations when this thing's over with. That goes for ever' last one of you regardless of your race, color or your creed. Now let's get this thing on the hump — we got some flyin' to do." – Slim Pickens as B-52 pilot Major T. J. "King" Kong in Dr. Strangelove

So why is it so hard for our leaders here at home to stand strong about Vlad the Invader and the current Rooskie threat that has started in Georgia.

Again, The American people do not have to know any details. But if our president doesn’t appear strong, and take an initiative to show just how steadfast we are for the promulgation of liberty and democracy in this world, then soon, there will not be a country on this planet that will follow our lead. Because AMERICA has NOT lead, but followed in political landscapes in the last 20 years, we are weakening our own nation and our future.

In 1975, the rock group Styx released a song called Suite Madame Blue. This was written as their thoughts about the upcoming bicentennial. Ronald Reagan brought us out of those doldrums. But we are right back there today. When will America once again rise with pride to be that “shining city on a hill” that inspires the rest of the world to strive to reach that same level of greatness? When will we realize that no matter how bleak things seem to be, that with God’s grace, we are still the best hope for the world. We are blessed to live in this nation now and our best days are still ahead!

Lyrics below:

Time after time
I sit and I wait for your call
I know I'm a fool, but what can I say
Whatever the price I'll pay for you,
Madame Blue

Once long ago
A word from your lips and the world turned around
But somehow you've changed
You're so far away
I long for the past and dream of the days with you,
Madame Blue

Suite Madame Blue, gaze in your looking glass
You're not a child anymore
Suite Madame Blue, the future is all but past

Dressed in your jewels, you made your own rules
You conquered the world and more …………..heaven's door


Red white and blue, gaze in your looking glass
You're not a child anymore
Red, white, and blue, the future is all but past
So lift up your heart, make a new start
And lead us away from here

The world is crying for true leadership that gives a crap about what is right and what is wrong, that makes a stand against evil and tyranny, that leads by example and not by following trends, and that is respected by the rest of the world for its might and its generosity.

President Bush has an opportunity right now to show that the United States of America has and angry one with two big brass companions!!! The genius of strength in the world is that the majority of it is due to perception. As long as the world sees us as weak and flaccid, then that is what we are.

I am not endorsing an unmitigated military solution, mind you. But I do believe that a show of strength is incredibly important in this day and time. We have to STOP and DEFEAT evil. We cannot battle evil on one front while letting it go unchecked on another. And as we know from experience, battles on different fronts can be fought in different ways.

America needs to get out of the recliner, turn off the golf channel, change out of Bermuda shorts, grab a rifle and defend the freedom we brag so much about!

Obama looking at major celebrity for veep position

"Amnesty, abortion, acid and appeasement"

Sources say that Barack Obama has added Barney, the big purple dinosaur to his short list of V.P. candidates. This would mark the entrance for Barny into the political arena.

It is really not that far off that a political novice could be considered and even shows Obama’s confidence in his own value to make a move like this.

Some of us are probably wondering what Barney would bring to the ticket.

Well, it really doesn’t matter since Obama would bring enough hope and change to the presidency and nation that a vice president wouldn’t really be needed. It could be this Barney, Barney Frank or even Barney Fife and it wouldn’t matter. However, Barney has always espoused a liberal, and some would say Marxist, doctrinal teaching in his television program that it simply seems a perfect match. Obama would utilize the big purple dinosaur as a national mascot to sing songs and dance around as a distraction from what the president, soon to be called chancellor, and would be doing while in office.

A spokesperson for Barney neither confirmed nor denied the political rumor but did state this: I love you, you love me…


Of course I am being ridiculous….BUT SO IS THE REST OF THE SO-CALLED PRESS!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just read an article, rather a blog, where John Kerry is now a veep consideration.

Paraphrasing, the author stated that America does love a comeback kid, like Nixon 40 years ago.

Okay, let’s look at this. Obama picks Kerry, the guy who wanted and still wants the top job; the guy who picked the adulterous ken doll for his veep; and the guy who considered the current GOP opponent for his veep.

Anyone else smell the dirty diapers yet?

It seems that as long as this veep pick can be the top news, people won’t start to see the truth: Obama is so shallow and flimsy that his V.P. pick actually matters to people who want him to win.

Outside of the last 25 years, can anyone easily bring to mind the losing veep candidates? As much as I love politics, I have to rack my brain to think of them.

Obama has the unfortunate distinction of needing a vice president who will make a difference in either the way a state or demographic votes and yet it won’t. In reality the person he needs, unless it is someone with less experience than he, is someone who should be running for president with BHO as V.P. But Biden or Richardson just couldn’t inspire enough HOPE or CHANGE in the libtards of this nation. Nor could they portray that Hitleresque homage in Europe the way Obama did.

Obama, in his vice presidential pick, will effectively assassinate that person politically worse than McGovern’s veep picks (Can you name them both and why there were two?). He might as well pick Barney.

What happens when a gorilla...

... hears about Obama economic plans.

wut dat smell like!? (gorilla fart)

World War III or Cold War II... maybe sooner than we think


Yes, there are ethnic and cultural considerations that go back hundreds of years where people are being wronged by both current governments. However, more that this, RUSSIA is asserting its imperialistic traditions. These traditions go back in time beyond anything instigated by the Soviets. Russia has always been an expansionist power and it seems that those tendencies are going to again snarl through the teeth of the bear.

I have heard from various sources that Georgia instigated this invasion by Russia. However, Georgia hardly seems capable to do this on practically any level. Russia wants Georgia just as it did Czechoslovakia back in 1968.

There are people in South Ossetia who have a cultural bond with the Russians right across the border Putin is using that. In North Ossetia, the majority is culturally bonded with the Georgians, who believe themselves to be the direct descendents of Japheth, the son of Noah.

There is oil in Georgia and Russia wants control of it.

There are other resources that Russia wants control of as well.

Secretary of State Rice made a statement that show America’s position:

I am still waiting to see how she will outline our actions in backing Georgia up…. But at least it is a start.

The left wing nuts have resorted to using a fox news video of a 12-year old girl to claim that Georgia is the evil instigator.

This girl, who happens to be from the San Francisco Bay area, couldn’t really describe anything about the warlike conditions other than her fear. DUH! She’s a 12 year old and why would she pay attention to any details about what kind of ammunition did what to what. However, she did have to interrupt to make sure that she stated that it was Georgians bombing them and that the Russian military was helping everyone. Then her aunt, who was obviously from Ossetia started in on the politics of the issue.

I do not doubt that this family believes that the current Georgian government is the aggressor and from their perspective, I can see it as well. But since cultural grudges go back so far and Ossetia, as well as two other provinces want independence from Georgia, it would tint their perspective as well.

I have no problem with those provinces wanting independence. I do have a problem with the Russians feigning assistance when their ultimate goal is to control those provinces as a part of their empire.

Saakashvili should find a way to work this out instead of letting Russia cause this much turmoil. But that is not where we are at anymore.

I am still stating for the record that I believe this could turn out to be another Yugoslavia, full of potential ethnic, cultural and religious turmoil. Furthermore, because of the proximity of Georgia to muslim nations and because oil is a resource, this could very easily be a new hotbed of terrorist activity. And the Russians for sure don’t know how to deal with that other that total oppression.

That is why it is so very important for the west, and America in general, to show solidarity with Georgia as a nation who espouses liberty and democracy. We show Russia and the world that we won’t tolerate communist style aggression. If we don’t, then Russia will build up again… just like Germany did after World War I. Georgia or the Ukraine may very well be this century’s Poland. A new world war and even a new holocaust may be right around the corner.

I felt like rambling and ranting

It’s 3am, the phone is ringing, Did Jesse Jackson actually get Obama’s onions?


The country Georgia is not quite at technologically advanced as the US state Georgia. So, no matter what Russia says, Georgia couldn’t have instigated a Russian attack.


Oil companies who have oil derricks but refuse to use them are doing so because of liberal and green intervention, and not because the companies would make “less” profit. Anytime a profit CAN be made, it would be RETARDED for them not to. Oil is a world commodity and as long as it can be drilled, money can be made. And I challenge anyone to find a company who has proportionately equitable profit margins on every one of their products and services. Wal Mart and Piggly Wiggly pay the same amount for a can of peas and yet they charge a different price. So, the profit for Wal Mart is different than that of Piggly Wiggly. And that would mean the proportional profit, after the total cost of expenditures, that each store would make would very likely be different than that of a tube of toothpaste. Stop buying what the news loons feed ya. They are the ones making the highest profit at the cost of truth.


Greta Van Susteren is just way too infatuated with scandalous murder. This is only proven by the fact that she went on Space Ghost Coast to Coast to talk about lawsuits.


The Virginia Governor is obviously trying to get that Veep job. He gives total credit to Obama for the cease-fire in Georgia. He may be right as there really isn’t any cease-fire there. Obama will probably call for a cease-fire if there is another terrorist attack against us, when war breaks out between Monte Carlo and Andorra, and the Super Bowl.


And yet again, McCain just can’t seem to truly want the conservative vote. Tom Ridge is a good man and a valuable member of the GOP, However, his pro-choice stance has no place on the McCain ticket if Republicans are to win. Jonny Boy needs to stop reading pop culture polls and start truly listening to his “voting” constituents.


From Sean Hannity to WorldNetDaily, there is just too much fascination with the weird and the paranormal. I really don’t think you can put a conservative light on some of it when you aren’t trying to disprove it. I’m not saying that conservatives are always supposed to be the skeptics, but these folks are letting the sensation of the story be the draw, rather than the facts known. STOP IT! It’s starting to chafe my hind parts.


And, you sooper dooper Oompa Loompelosi........ After all the ungodly stuff you support and let pass into law, I can’t take you seriously when you give Christ credit. And if Christ already saved the planet, why do you insist that you still have that job to do? Honeychild, you gotta get over yourself….soon!


And stop posting news reports that totally refute the headline….FOX NEWS, CNN, AP!!!!! I am going to write an article where the headline reads that Carter Insists that McCain Should Get the Presidency. And then have the actually story talk about Officer Dave Carter, an NYPD sergeant is supporting McCain. Colin Powel for Obama? His business but at this point we have Hillary supported who support McCain….so who cares?


And why is John Edwards still getting press at this point? Well, of course it’s to detract from any negativity Obama may get. But facts have born out. Edwards is NOT a candidate for anything at this point. He did commit adultery and he did lie about it. I really don’t care about the kid being his. The story is over, drop it.


Finally, if you aren’t already, you need to be listening to Heading Right Radio on

Vote this!!!!

Vote McCain
To the tune of “Walk This Way” by Aerosmith
(Words by Scott from SC)

Backroom dealers
Actin’ like big wheelers
Still I talked to the Speaker, she say
She said she wanted a vacation
To hell with the nation
Then she turned around and walked away

I met a young moonbat
Who hated all in combat
At the troops she would spit and hiss
She protested war
With other Code Pink whores
So I gave her a great big diss, like this!

Abortion on demand
Oil from other lands
Throwin’ white flags up in the air
Appeasement dribble
From the DNC liberals
They’re lyin’ and they just don’t care

So I’m gonna take a stand
Instead of throwin’ up my hands
I’ll do my part on Election Day
Not voting helps Obama
And that terrorist Osama
And our country will decay
So I’m going to

Vote McCain, vote McCain
Vote McCain, vote McCain
Vote McCain, vote McCain
Vote McCain, vote McCain
Let freedom ring… like this!

Liberal Judges
Who hold liberal grudges
Makin’ laws from the bench
For criminal invaders
For gun and bible haters
It gives off a nasty stench

Taxes on the rise
And a congress full of lies
Just the thought of it gets me pissed
Because I know the truth
I’ll go vote in that booth
Conservatives I will assist, like this!

Abortion on demand
Oil from other lands
Throwin’ white flags up in the air
Appeasement dribble
From the DNC liberals
They’re lyin’ and they just don’t care

So I’m gonna take a stand
Instead of throwin’ up my hands
I’ll do my part on Election Day
Not voting helps Obama
And Chelsea’s lefty mama
And our country will decay
So I’m going to

Vote McCain, vote McCain
Vote McCain, vote McCain
Vote McCain, vote McCain
Vote McCain, vote McCain
Let freedom ring… like this!

10.1.2008 = American Energy Freedom Energy Day

From SC Senator Jim DeMint and TX Representative Jeb Hensarling

Sunday, August 10, 2008


… I do NOT care how much another nation or population likes our president. This isn’t the vote for Miss Congeniality in a beauty pageant. I will NEVER base my vote on how much I personally like a candidate. I have a democrat uncle who blames Republicans for almost everything. He is one of the nicest and funniest men I know, we get along fine and I love him very much but would NEVER vote for him for anything

I’ll state it again:

I do not have to like him/her, but the president I want is one who will command respect, and in some cases fear, in the world. One who when another nation or power considers striking against us, they think three and four times about it first because they recognize that our Commander-in-Chief will fight back hard. I want a president who will respect and adhere to the constitution who will defeat measures by Congress and the Supreme Court when they choose to bypass the constitution. I want a president who will stand by the convictions by which he or she is elected and not compromise to appease any person or group, domestic or foreign.

I don’t want a president who will worry about his or her popularity…so stop asking my why I don’t like Obama. I do NOT know the man personally so I cannot give an honest answer. And stop asking me why I don’t like McCain for the same reasons.

My vote is not based on who I think is going to be my best buddy. If that were the case, I’d vote for my dog, Thor.

I am voting AGAINST Obama and that is all there is to it!

My Letter to the Gang of Ten

After House Republicans showed the American people that we were being looked out for in Congress this past week, five Republican and five Democrat senators decided to undermine the American people by seeking a compromise on the issues of energy where one was not desired or needed. These ten senators are known as the ”Gang of Ten”

You can listen below to a recap of Friday’s (8/8/08) activities from conservative blogger and BlogTalkRadio host, ”Joshua P. Allem”

“After an awesome week of Republicans successfully standing up to Democrats, RINOs led by Lindsey Graham came out from under the toilet seat to muck things up. We'll play a few clips from today's noon episode of American Truth Warriors where Congressman Frank Wolf angered us with suggestions of compromise. We'll then play first reactions from Sonlit Knight, Snooper, Media Lizzy, myself and Rush Limbaugh.” – JPA Live show description for August 8, 2008.

This was an outstanding show full of interviews and conservative opinion.

I listened to most of terrestrial and BlogTalkRadio about this issue on Friday and my blood pressure had risen so high I had to step away and get myself calm again. Then I began to compose a letter to those five Republicans, including one of my state senators….LINDSEY GRAHAM!

At first I ranted and rambled with vitriol and ire that really wasn’t courteous at all. I then had to start over and present something a little more professional. Below is that letter:


The Gang of Ten are WRONG

I won’t waste your time with telling you that there are those of us conservatives who are extremely upset at where this congress have gotten us in terms of gas prices and the future of energy in America.

I won’t waste your time by telling you that you and the other four Republican Senators in the so called “gang of ten” have been a huge disappointment to us regarding your “leftist” actions in the Senate.

I won’t waste your time by telling you that the American people, your constituents, WANT an up or down vote on the American Energy Act currently in the House.

I won’t waste your time by telling you that you are playing right into the Democrats’ hands by undermining what the House Republicans have been doing this week.

And finally, I won’t waste your time in telling you that it gives the appearance that you five want some sort of glory and are willing to kowtow to the liberals and their special interest groups to get that glory to promulgate your political legacy.


Senator, you are the reason that Democrats have taken the majority in Congress from the Republicans. You, as well as others, have continually voted WITH liberals on several affective issues that compromise conservative values and beliefs. Stop it.

I have heard from some of the five Republicans and several congressional supporters of your desire to reach across the aisle to expeditiously get something or anything done. Stop it.

You have been listening to several liberal leaning congressmen who have continually, yet ignorantly, stated that they believe the American people want compromise in this. Stop it.

You seem to superfluously feel that you five can simply and compromisingly achieve an end result, no matter what that may be, while sacrificing on what the American people want and need. Stop it.

And you presume that by compromising through concession after concession to the left that you will be re-elected to do it all over again. Stop it!

As a voter and constituent of Senator Lindsey Graham in South Carolina, I am imploring you to stand firm on the values I voted for. Stand by your fellow Republicans in the House on this issue and others. Forget about trying to appease your fellow senators and actually represent what the people of this great nation actually want and need. Forget about trying to build a legacy for your office and yourself. Stop working with the opposition and work to achieve conservative and Republican goals.

If you turn around on this issue and show America what a solid conservative Republican can do to strive for the nations success, I and other conservative bloggers and BlogTalkRadio hosts like me will openly and unswervingly promote you and your associates. However, continue on this path and your actions will draw ire and contempt from your constituents and no matter how hard any of us opine for you, it just won’t matter. If you continue down this slippery slope of liberal voting, the Democratic candidates you face will appear more conservative than you. And the 2006 election has shown that seemingly conservative Democrats won over moderate Republicans again and again.

It’s time for Republicans to stop being buddy-buddy with liberal Democrats on the respective floors of Congress and actually stand up for your constituents and your party.

Although I won’t hold my breath for anything other than a generic response telling me how congress and the real world works, I really would appreciate a response, a conservative Republican response, that I can post to show that you truly care more about your constituents than compromise.

With sincerest regards,

Scott from SC

CNN Fabricates Lack of McCain Support


Where is the Red? - a group dedicated to telling the truth about the alleged youth vote- reported about a CNN story which widely questions McCain's ability to appeal to young voters. The story quotes an Eric Perlmutter, "a Republican and student at the at the University of Southern California," making disparaging statements about McCain's lack of popularity on campus compared with Obama.
(CNN story can be found: here.)

However, 'Where is the Red?' asserts this source was fabricated. Their announcement is as follows:

Yesterday, CNN released a story claiming that no young voter would support John McCain for President. They spoke to one Eric Perlmutter, a "College Republican" at the University of Southern California, who said, "We try to get people out to our College Republican meetings, but we can't seem to get the same amount of support."

The only problem? None of CNN's reporting is true, and we called them out on it.

Ben Myers, the president of the USC College Republicans, has never seen Perlmutter in his life. He said, "As far as I know, he could be a Democrat." In fact, this whole story could be phony. No Eric Perlmutter is affiliated with the USC College Republicans, though there is a CNN producer named Bruce Perlmutter. Even worse, some of Perlmutter's quotes are taken directly from a story in the Washington Post! (The blog CitizenSugar has the whole story.)

While the mainstream media publishes fiction about fake College Republicans, four real College Republicans are working their way across America telling the truth about the youth vote.

Fox and Hounds Daily, a site dedicated to "keeping tabs on California business and politics," published a story by Michael Antonopoulos, Chairman of California Students for McCain. Antonopoulos states as follows:

Yesterday morning, I awoke to concerning news – someone claiming to be linked to Students for McCain and the USC College Republicans had been quoted by CNN as stating that McCain does not appeal to youth, Republicans included, and will struggle to carry the youth vote on both sides of the aisle. The CNN story was one of the top headlines on their website, and even made the front page of Yahoo.

Later in the day, CNN posted a video clip of the interview, showing supposed College Republican Eric Pearlmutter elaborating on how Senator McCain was far less appealing to young voters, and as a result, how the College Republicans at USC were having trouble getting students to even attend their meetings.

Right off the bat, something seemed a bit off – given the fact that USC is currently not in session, it was strange to have a College Republican commenting on meeting attendance, and I hadn’t ever met the individual in the CNN article and video despite working closely with leaders at our USC chapter in the past.

Confirming our suspicions with two of our contacts at the campus, USC College Republicans Chairman Ben Meyers and California College Republicans Chairwoman Cheyenne Steel (daughter of F&H Blogger Michelle Steel), we found that Mr. Perlmutter was not, and had never been, a member of the USC organization. No one affiliated with the chapter that I spoke with had even heard of him prior to the publication of the CNN article, and there was no record of him ever attending a College Republicans meeting.

Students for McCain’s California youth effort has so far been a huge success, with our membership growing every week. I do concede that Senator Obama has an obvious appeal to a good portion of the youth vote. However, Students for McCain, throughout the state and at our USC chapter, has proven that there is active and growing support in the youth electorate for Senator McCain as well.

We chose to respond yesterday afternoon by issuing a press release to media outlets throughout the state -- as seasoned veterans of the press along with a handful of political bloggers took note of the obvious discrepancy and began to investigate, a lot more was revealed.

Theories began multiplying at a startling pace -- They ranged from standard accusations of CNN carrying a liberal bias to an investigative claim that Mr. Perlmutter was in fact a relative of a CNN producer who was used to fabricate quotes for the purpose of the story. Although it is too premature to speculate on CNN’s motivations in this matter, the bad press forced them to ‘admit an error’ via the Los Angeles Times Political Blog and invite the Students for McCain Chair at USC to tell his side of the story on an upcoming edition of their morning show.

I don't think the real question is why they chose to fabricate a source to hurt McCain's campaign. I think the real question is how shameless CNN intends to be in promoting their political agenda over actual factual reporting.

Old Testament 'proof': Royal seal discovered from WND

Old Testament 'proof': Royal seal discovered

Archaeologists unearth ancient relic from prince mentioned in Jeremiah

A team of archaeologists in Israel has unearthed what's believed to be the royal seal of an Old Testament prince who is said to have tossed the prophet Jeremiah down a well.

Royal seal bears name of Gedaliah, a prince to Judah's King Zedekiah, mentioned in the Old Testament Book of Jeremiah. (courtesy Dr. Eilat Mazar)

The stamped engraving, known as a "bulla," was discovered earlier this year about 600 feet south of the Temple Mount, but is just now making headlines.

Team leader Dr. Eilat Mazar of Jerusalem's Hebrew University says the imprint was found in clay, astonishingly well-preserved, bearing the name of Gedaliah, the son of Pashur.

"How absolutely fantastic and special this find is can only be realized when you hold in your hand this magnificent one-centimeter piece of clay and know that it survived 2,600 years in the debris of the destruction, and came to us complete and in perfect condition," Mazar said.

Gedaliah is mentioned by name in Jeremiah 38:1 as he served Judah's King Zedekiah in the final days before Jerusalem was conquered by Babylon's King Nebuchadnezzar in 586 B.C.

The prophet's writings tell of the actions that Gedaliah and his fellow princes took against him:

"Then took they Jeremiah, and cast him into the dungeon of Malchiah the son of Hammelech, that was in the court of the prison: and they let down Jeremiah with cords. And in the dungeon there was no water, but mire: so Jeremiah sunk in the mire." (Jeremiah 38:6)

The prophet was rescued after an Ethiopian eunuch pleaded with the king on Jeremiah's behalf, saying, "he is like to die for hunger in the place where he is: for there is no more bread in the city." (38:9)

The king then ordered 30 men to hoist up the prophet before the city fell to the Babylonians.

A 19th century Bible depicts the prophet Jeremiah being lifted out of a well.

The letters on the seal are in ancient Hebrew, and Mazar told WND the relic was recovered through a wet-sifting process. She says the method was learned after the "illegal excavations" by the Waqf, the Islamic custodians of the Temple Mount, who have been dumping debris in huge mounds.

"The wet sifting that we did for the destruction debris from our excavations indeed allowed us to uncover hundreds of different kinds of small finds such as tiny fish bones, Phoenician glass beads, Hebrew, Babylonian and Egyptian bullae and seals, pits and seeds, hematite and limestone weights, arrowheads, figurines, jewelry and more," she said.

Dr. Eilat Mazar

This is actually the second recent discovery of an ancient bulla from the time of Jeremiah.

In 2005, Mazar found another seal with the name of Jehucal the son of Shelemiah, who is mentioned twice in the prophet's book. That artifact was found in a stone structure Mazar believes was part of King David's ancient palace.

She added, "It is not very often that such a discovery happens to archaeologists in which real figures of the past shake off the dust of history and so vividly revive the stories of the Bible."

Call Congress back

It’s time for us to take action. Now there is a way for us to do just that:


Gas prices are out of control. House Republicans have a plan to lower gas prices, a plan that has the votes to pass.

Speaker Pelosi refuses to allow a vote. In fact, she just shut down Congress for a five-week paid vacation.

House Republicans took the floor demanding a vote for an energy plan to lower gas prices. Pelosi turned off the lights, the microphones, and the tv cameras.

House Republicans refused to give up.

With the cameras off, and no television audience, these Republicans spoke passionately for their belief that Congress must not wait to do something about skyrocketing gas prices that are causing families to suffer.

Democrats in Congress have done nothing to lower your gas prices. They have refused to allow a vote and now they have decided to take a vacation.

It is truly ironic that, in a year when many American families are canceling their vacation plans because of high gas prices, House Democrats are taking theirs before doing anything to lower those gas prices.

(to the tune of Bad Moon Rising by CCR)

I see the moonbats arising.
I see trouble on the way.
I hear them bitchin’ and whining.
I wish they’d just go away.

They may be on the rise
But don’t fear for you life,
We’ve got your back here on the Right.

Don’t fear those traitors in Code Pink.
Don’t fear
Don’t fear morons in the DNC.
Resist all those liberal Borg.

All right!

Hope to your bibles and guns you’re clingin’.
Hope you are ready to attack.
Conservatism is what we’ll be bringin’.
It’s time to take our country back!


Revolution....It's about TIME!!!!!!!!

Revolution 2008
Words by Scott from South Cackalacky
(To the tune of Revolution 1 by the Beatles)

Well now you’ve got a revolution
Well you know
All we want is cheaper gas
By the rules of the Constitution
Time to vote
Up or down, fail or pass
But all you wanted was a vacation
You killed the lights and tried to shut us out
Don't you know we’re gonna finish the fight
Alright, gonna fight, alright

You won’t listen to our solution
Well you know
We’re right, but you just don’t care
Now we’re after retribution
Well you know
So now you better beware
And now you want money for a book that people hate
All we want to do is continue the debate
Don't you know there’s gonna be a fight
Alright, a fight

You’re calling for Bush’s execution
Well you know
You can’t blame him for your mistakes
You belong in an institution
Time to go
You and all the liberal flakes
The winds of change are coming, you will regret
The day you could’ve done something but you just left
So now there’s gonna be a fight
Alright, a fight

It's the Oompa Loompelosi

Come with me – And you’ll be…
In a world of pure imagination!!!!!

The Oompa Loompelosi

Oompa loompa Pelosi doo
I've got another puzzle for you
Oompa loompa Pelosi dee
If you’re a fool you'll listen to me

Why did you stay on the house chamber floor?
I left long ago on my whirlwind book tour.
I don’t care if we need cheaper gas.
The America people can just kiss… my… ass!

I am al-ways better than you!

Oompa loompa Pelosi dare,
If you're not smart then you just will not care.
You will live in ignorance `cause,
The Oompa Loompa Pelosi does!

Dems decide to "kick it" while we still have outrageous gas prices

So, you still think the Democrats are looking out for you? I for one will NEVER be convinced of that now…

After a few weeks of the US House of Representatives discussing and passing bills regarding minutiae releventiae, the Democratic leadership decided to kick it for a few weeks while leaving the current energy act discussion dangling with nowhere near as much importance as those hanging chads of 2000. While apology and reparations for slavery and keeping lead out of toys have made the USHOR “plays of the week” in the main stream media, oil prices are still too high and something has got to be done about them NOW!

In other words, things have been accomplished in the house, but just like the SNL character Velvet Jones romance book title, I feel like I’ve been kicked in the butt by love.

However, just when it seemed that the House would yet again walk out the door with token victories and superfluous accomplishments, the energy debate took the forefront.

At noon, on August, 1 2008, the Democrats turned out the lights, shut down the cameras and headed home for the month. But some fifty Republicans insistent on enacting legislation to address skyrocketing oil prices remained on the House floor for more than five hours, swiping, sniping and griping at the democratic majority and making grand and patriotic speeches which garnered cheers from the gallery.

Rep. Thaddeus McCotter, R-Mich. Said, "This is the people's House, This is not Pelosi's politburo."

Democratic aides were furious at the GOP members' refusal to leave and kicked out reporters from the Speaker's Lobby.

House GOP members are incensed by Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's moves to block voting on a plan to reduce dependence on foreign sources of oil. Republicans claim that there are enough votes that include support from a significant number of Democrats.

The Republicans wrapped up their “chamber tea party” at 5:05 p.m. by singing "God Bless America," and left the chamber with the crowd chanting, "USA! USA!"

Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, and other GOP leaders opposed the motion to adjourn the House, at 11:23 a.m. Because Pelosi refuses to schedule a vote allowing offshore drilling, the American economy will continue to suffer and our national security will continue to be threatened.

At one point, the chamber lights and microphones were turned off, but then returned while Rep. John Shadegg, R-Ariz. was speaking.

C-SPAN, which has no control over House cameras, stopped broadcasting after the official adjournment.

Apparently, Republicans tried to prevent Capitol Police from removing the press from their gallery above the floor. GOP leaders tried to find other Republicans to rotate in for Blunt so reporters would not be forced to leave.

Blunt's office sent out a message saying: "Although, this Democrat Majority just adjourned for the Democrat 5-Week Vacation, House Republicans are continuing to fight on the House Floor. Although the lights, mics and C-SPAN cameras have been turned off, House Republicans are on the Floor speaking to the tax payers in the gallery who, not surprisingly, agree with Republican Energy proposals. All Republicans who are in town are encouraged to come to the House Floor."

Congress is set to adjourn at the end of September and will take most of August off for recess.

Now is the time, folks, to be a part of this process. Remember that it is supposed to be OF the people as well as by the people and for the people. Join us in the blogosphere and contact your representative, no matter what party they represent and give them a reason to stay on the job for you. Let them know that you will not support someone who ignores the needs of the American people. You can reach members of the House and members of the U.S. Senate by calling 202-224-3121. The official House website contains web pages for all members and includes e-mail addresses for most. The official Senate website also contains web pages for all members and includes email address for some.

I am pleased to congratulate and give kudos to the House GOP members for finally showing some backbone and doing the kind of things we elected them to do. Stay vigilant in this as we need you to represent us, not just show up in D.C. to work at a job.

I hope my rekindled confidence in you will not be shunned by this merely being a token political act. But I do have faith that you will do the right thing and maybe even inspire some of the opposition to see the light.
