Start Your List!

Numbers USA, has posted a list of the chicken-livered
Senators who voted FOR cloture on the Dream Act
amnesty. They also posted the list of the last-minute
switch hitters. The TRAITORS among us.

Visittheir website, and do the right thing.

I sent faxes to my Senators to show my displeasure at
their having voted in favor of the bill. I asked them
whether they are representing the American people or the
Mexican government.

The problem is that MOST Americans only know how
to complain after the fact, and these seasoned politicians
know what short memories we all have . If enough of us
remind these DC freeloaders that they are representing
us, they just might get the hint, that if they don’t shape


Enough Already!!!!!!!

The desperate Democrats have still not let up
on the Iraq war "blame". I for one, am sick of
the over-blown exagerations of "being misled
into a war", and all the other crap that they
managed to fool the voters with.

Occasionally, I have to resurrect the following,
to remind these witless wonders of exactly who
said what, and when. The only difference
between the spineless Democrats of the Clinton
administration, and the Bush administration is
that Bush had the guts and balls to actually
do something. If Clinton had been half the man,
after the first attack on the US, there never would
have been a 9/11.

The Iraqi Threat: A Retrospective:

The question was never if Saddam Hussein posed
a threat; everyone agreed he did. The question
was who was going to do something about it.
"One way or the other, we are determined to deny
Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass
destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That
is our bottom line."- President Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998

"If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force,
our purpose is clear...We want to seriously diminish the
threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction
program."- President Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998

"Iraq is a long way from [the USA], but what happens
there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the
leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or
biological weapons against us or our allies is the
greatest security threat we face."-Madeline Albright,
Feb 18, 1998

"He will use those weapons of mass destruction
again, as he has ten times since 1983."- Sandy Berger,
Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998

"[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and
consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to
take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air
and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond
effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end
its weapons of mass destruction programs."-
Letter to President Clinton, signed by Sens. Carl
Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, and others Oct. 9, 1998

"Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development
of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a
threat to countries in the region and he has made a
mockery of the weapons inspection process."-
Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998

"Hussein has ... chosen to spend his money on
building weapons of mass destruction and palaces
for his cronies."- Madeline Albright, Clinton
Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999

"There is no doubt that ... Saddam Hussein has
invigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate
that biological, chemical and nuclear programs
continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War
status. In adition, Saddam continues to redefine
delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover
of a licit missile program to develop longer-range
missiles that will threaten the United States and
our allies."- Letter to President Bush, Signed by
Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL,) and others, December 5, 2001

"We begin with the common belief that Saddam
Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and
stability of the region. He has ignored the mandated of
the United Nations and is building weapons of mass
destruction and the means of delivering them."-
Sen. Carl Levin (D, MI), Sept. 19, 2002

"We know that he has stored secret supplies of
biological and chemical weapons throughout his
country."- Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

"Iraq's search for weapons of mass destruction has
proven impossible to deter and we should assume
that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in
power."- Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

"We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein
is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction."
- Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002

"The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October
of 1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains
some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons,
and that he has since embarked on a crash course to
build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities.
Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear
weapons..."- Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002

"I will be voting to give the President of the United
States the authority to use force if necessary to disarm
Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal
of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real
and grave threat to our security."-
Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002

"There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein
is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons
and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next
five years ... We also should remember we have always
underestimated the progress Saddam has made in
development of weapons of mass destruction."
- Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D, WV), Oct 10, 2002

"He has systematically violated, over the course of
the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that
has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical
and biological weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This
he has refused to do."-
Rep.Henry Waxman (D, CA), Oct. 10, 2002

"In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence
reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to
rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock,
his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program.
He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to
terrorists, including al Qaeda members .. It is clear,
however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will
continue to increase his capacity to wage biological
and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop
nuclear weapons."-
Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002

"We are in possession of what I think to be
compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has,
and has had for a number of years, a developing
capacity for the production and storage of weapons
of mass destruction."-
Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), Dec. 8, 2002

"Without question, we need to disarm Saddam
Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading
an oppressive regime ... He presents a particularly
grievous threat because he is so consistently prone
to miscalculation ... And now he is miscalculating
America's response to his continued deceit and his
consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction ...
So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of
mass destruction is real..."
- Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan. 23. 2003

Hat tip to J.R. Whipple, though some links are gone
(notably redacted from the Kerry site)

Anyone who ever believed the Democrats' claim,
that Bush got permission to invade Iraq by lying to
them, is either a total idiot, or a dyed-in-the-wool
Bush-hater. The Senate saw the exact same
intelligence that President Bush and his cabinet
saw. And oddly enough, though on opposite sides
of the aisle, there was an overwhelming consensus.

Only when it became convenient for them, did the
Democrats discover that they had "been duped".

I think that the Americans who voted for a Democratic
majority in the House and Senate, are the ones who
have been duped! I hope that we all don't have to
pay the price for their stupidity.


Another Slap to Reid's "Two-Faces"!

Numbers USA, a group that I am proud to belong
to, issued this online statement earlier................

"October 24) The Senate failed to obtain cloture
on the DREAM Act amnesty (S. 2205) earlier
this afternoon by a 52-44 vote, for which 60
YES votes were needed to prevent a filibuster.

At this time, leadership from both parties are
meeting to discuss further proceedings.
Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and
Assistant Majority Leader Dick Durbin (D-Ill.)
were attempting to bring this nightmarish
amnesty bill to the floor under Senate Rule
XIV without it ever having been debated in
committee. Earlier this morning, the Bush
Administration issued a statement opposing
the DREAM Act ..."

For a supposedly intelligent body, the
Democratic-controlled Congress just can't
seem to get it through it's collective head,
that the American people have had enough
of immigration....... illegal or otherwise.

It's bad enough that they want the approximate
12 million illegals who are already here, to stay,
they are tacking on provisions that will allow
them to send for their extended families, making
the true total more like 21 million. Add this
amount to the proposed increases in legal
immigration that the Dems have planned, and we
will soon be a country as populous as India and
China. Something that we do not need. But
bear in mind, the more "sheep" that qualify for
the voting booth, the better the Democrats do
in elections. Speaks reams!

The Democrats have attained their present
good fortune, mostly on the "exorbatant cost of
the Iraq war". Do they have ANY idea of what
the cost of their proposals would be? I doubt it,
because they will follow the old tried-&-true
method of "tax the American worker to death".

Well.............. the voters can't say that we didn't
try to warn them, can they? I hope that come
November, '08, they have gotten enough education
to make the right choice.


Will Democrats be Held Accountable for Their Lies?

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (John Shinkle)

I once heard the late comedian Redd Fox quip, “A Lie is as good as the truth if you can get some fool to believe it!” Yeah pretty funny stuff.

Little did Fox know that he wasn’t the only one who held that philosophical view. As a matter of fact, of late, that Foxtonian pronouncement seems to be employed quite a bit by politicians who have apparently come to believe that they have little accountability for what they say and do.

Take for instance California Democrat Congressman Pete Stark who was just using the same old Democrat hyperbole that has become a Democrat tactic against the war and President Bush for the last 6 years when he said:
"You don't have money to fund the war or children," Stark said on the House floor. "But you're going to spend it to blow up innocent people if we can get enough kids to grow old enough for you to send to Iraq to get their heads blown off for the president's amusement."
(See video below)

Truth is Democrats have been saying this kind of nasty stuff about the President for a long, long time (that’s why Stark did it) why all the fuss about it now? 89% disapproval ratings in the polls and a new Democrat publicity campaign to boost Congress’ image that’s why all the fuss. A Democrat lead Congress has nothing to show for their promises to end the war in Iraq, the reason why the American people elected them the majority in Congress, but broken promises and lies.

Democrats would now have you believe that they didn’t know how the Senate and the House worked. They didn’t know that they couldn’t just ride into Washington with guns a blazin’ and demand that “ol’ Black Bart” George W. Bush end the war with their bright shiny new “Majority in Congress” badges. Democrats didn’t end the war as promised; no instead they funded the war several times a war which they voted the President authority for ! (Which makes it a legal war because Congress give authority for this war Rep. Stark)

Listening to Democrats now they didn’t know that the Senate was controlled by the minority and they didn’t know that without building bipartisanship nothing could get done even though Democrats spent the last 12 years in the minority blocking everything the Republicans attempted to do.

Nancy Pelosi didn’t know that a slim majority in the House wouldn’t allow her to push forward all the promised Democratic agenda items.
She didn’t know? (Sounds a lot like Iraq intelligence) Does she honest expect you to believe that? Do you honestly believe that Pelosi didn’t know after 12 years of being in the minority how the House worked? And then all of those insulting promises made to the America people just to get Democrats elected:
Pelosi vowed that five-day workweeks would be a hallmark of a harder-working Democratic majority. So far, the House has logged only one. Lawmakers plan to clock three days this week.

The speaker has denied Republicans a vote on their proposals during congressional debates -- a tactic she previously declared oppressive and promised to end. Pelosi has opened the floor to a Republican alternative just once.

Pelosi set a high standard for herself when she pledged to make this "the most ethical Congress in history" [instead] [s]he put Rep. William Jefferson (D-La.), who had $90,000 in alleged bribe money in his freezer, on the Homeland Security Committee. And The Washington Post reported during the weekend that she is helping chairmen raise money from donors with business before their committees.
As for the Americans who think that Democrat’s promises to end the war should be kept Congresswoman Pelosi says:
Activists who want to target congressional Democrats for lack of action on the war are misguided, the speaker argued. "I think it is a waste of time for them to go after Democratic members.

They ought to just persuade Republican members who are representing areas that are opposed to the war," she said. "We said we would change the debate; we would fight to end the war. We never said we had the veto pen or the signature pen."
What? No you didn’t Ms. Speaker, Democrats promised unequivocally that if they were elected the majority in Congress they would end the war according to anti-war activist Tina Richards.
I attended the rally on Tuesday night where Speaker Pelosi and Leader Reid discussed how they were going to "end the war" and "bring our troops home" with the Levin-Reed Amendment.

When I asked if they meant all the troops, I was quickly told to, "shut up" and muscled aside by security. A fellow Marine Mom was treated in much the same manner and we couldn't get over how much like the Republicans the "Anti-Escalation" folks were acting.
Then when Senator Reid was asked directly about ending the war he danced around like he was a contestant on "Dancing with the Stars": (See below)

Ms. Pelosi to now say that the American people are fools and didn’t understand what you promised is absolutely outrageous.

You knew full well how the Congress operated when you made those promises Senator Reid and Congresswomen Pelosi the fact that you now can’t deliver on your promises is indicative of a lying and incompetence Democrat controlled Congress that said what it needed to say just to get elected. And don’t farther insult the people who elected you by telling them to go and persuade GOP lawmakers to end the war, that’s your job! That is why you were elected to the majority in Congress.

This is one insular isolated place where I agree with Cindy Sheehan, if Americans want change in our government the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid must be extricated from the hallowed halls of Congress and replaced by good Americans who place the well-being of this nation over games of political gotcha and pandering to radical hate groups like

Rep. Stark is only the first Democrat from which we should hear the apology, “I’m sorry for what I said.” In the pass eight years Democrats have said a lot about the war and the President some true but mostly political hyperbole meant to hurt and harm the presidency, the war effort and to get Democrats elected to office.

If you didn’t know now you know. Democrats will not have the same impunity that they enjoyed in 2006 where they skillful made all Republicans liars and corrupt and Democrats agents of change even though they were apart of the same culture of corruption in the House and the Senate.

We now know that both Parties live with in that same culture Ms. Pelosi!
