How We Keep Terrorists Out

Many people are worried about terrorists coming into our country through our "porous borders," and they are right to be so concerned, according to this report in World Net Daily: "WASHINGTON – Half of the 91,516 illegal aliens from terror-sponsoring countries and those of 'special interest' apprehended at the border between 2001 and 2005 were released into the U.S. population, according to a report by the inspector general's office of the Department of Homeland Security". This is how our government keeps potential terrorists out of our country. If you are afraid that terrorists might be living in this country while plotting to destroy it, be afraid . . . be very afraid. How the hell do we hope to keep terrorists out if we "apprehend" them and then let them go? It's INSANITY! When will they "wake up?" When we start dying in this country? We haven't had an attack in this country since 2001, but that's no credit to this government. (World Net Daily)

Cops Kill Innocent Person --Again

In Atlanta, the cops burst into the wrong house, which was occupied by a "nice old grandmother" who had a gun to protect herself against neighborhood thugs [She had a permit. -RT]. What she didn't know is the "thugs" breaking into her house [They weren't in uniform. -RT] were the cops, and she "opened up" on them. So they shot her to death "like a dog," according to her niece. Never mind they were in the wrong house. If ANYBODY "opens up" on the cops, they'll KILL them, and they did. This is not an uncommon occurrence. Recently in Denver, Colorado, they broke into the wrong house and killed Ismael Mena, an old man they CLAIM had a gun and was firing at them. Only problem is, he was asleep, and was shot through his bedroom door. Also, ALL the bullet holes in the door and the wall next to it were fired INWARD. But no one can prove that because the door and that section of wall have mysteriously disappeared. In addition, the last two shots in this man were fired DOWNWARD through his body, into the floor. The gun they SAY he had was untraceable and looks suspiciously like the "throwdown" guns many cops carry in case of a "wrong shooting" to make IAD think it was a "good" shooting. No info on whether or not the gun had actually been fired. But then, the same cops are in charge of the evidence, aren't they? Then there was the sick old man in a second-floor bedroom of a house they were entering to arrest someone else. A cop came up a ladder and entered the room via a window, shooting and killing the man, who was holding a pop can. "LEBANON, Tenn. (AP) -- A 61-year-old man was shot to death by police while his wife was handcuffed in another room during a drug raid on the wrong house. " I'm not a "cop-hater." There are many good, dedicated cops out there doing a hard, thankless job. Unfortunately, there are also cops like these out there who are committing murder under the cover of law. Yes, mistakes are made. But there are far too many such mistakes being made and innocent people, not the cops involved, are paying the price. (Toronto Star,)

William Buckley: From Both Sides

The Left: "Conservative author, essayist, columnist, pundit, smug asshole, gadabout, secret spook, and blue-blooded creep William F. Buckley is dead. Buckley, 82, suffered from diabetes and emphysema, though his cause of death is not yet known. And with him died respectable, intelligent, genteel-but-cut-throat New York Conservatism." I don't think so. What about the magazine he founded that has thrived after his retirement from its helm? What about the "conservative juggernaut" he spawned that resulted in Rush Limbaugh, Shawn Hannity, and others, who are no longer afraid to speak out? What about the "right-wing conspiracy" Hillary is so afraid of? " The Right: I was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of William F. Buckley, Jr. today. For over 50 years Bill Buckley made an enormous contribution to American culture and politics. He will be remembered as the father of the modern conservative movement. Thankfully, his legacy will continue in the National Review, the recognized standard bearer he founded over 50 years ago."(The Corner)" The liberals and the socialists (one in the same) would like to bury conservatism with Bill Buckley, but they're never going to be able to do it. Buckley himself said it: "We'll be around long after you've written my obituary." When Buckley started, he was very much alone. But he gave budding conservative writers a place for their writings and that spawned other sources, sources which will continue to spread the word about individuality, rather than collectivism, until individuality triumphs.

Farrakhan Likes Obama

Which is all I would need to know to vote against Obama, even if I weren't already opposed to him being elected because he is a dedicated socialist. Another thing that worries me is, if Obama is elected president, will he be influenced by the likes of Farrakhan? Maybe he'll take Obama up to "The Mother Ship" for indoctrination? Or is Farrakhan secretly against Obama and wants to torpedo his candidacy? He couldn't do a better job of it than by "endorsing" him. Farrakhan says, "This young man is the hope of the entire world that America will change and be made better," he said. "This young man is capturing audiences of black and brown and red and yellow. If you look at Barack Obama's audiences and look at the effect of his words, those people are being transformed." Farrakhan compared Obama to the religion's founder, Fard Muhammad, who also had a white mother and black father." Frankly, I don't want to have a president who is like Fard Muhammed OR like Farrakhan. Even if I were leaning toward Obama (which I am NOT), Farrakhan's "endorsement" would cause me to turn in the other direction. Further he says, " 'A black man with a white mother became a savior to us,' [Not even. -RT] he told the crowd of mostly followers. 'A black man with a white mother could turn out to be one who can lift America from her fall.' " America is NOT in a "fall," no matter how many times Farrakhan and other liberals say it is, they can't make it so. Notice even Farrakhan talks about "change" without defining it. Does he really think he can sway the average American by "endorsing" Obama and speaking in generalities, as do other politicians? Sheesh! (News Max)

Gun Used to Keep Pro-Gun Student Out

"Captain's Quarters tells the story of Tony Scheffler, a student at Hamline University that dared question the ban of concealed weapons on his campus after receiving an email from the school offering extra counseling and assistance for students coping with the VA Tech murders. The schools reaction? David Stern, reaching back to the grand tradition of the Soviet Union, decided that dissent had to involve some sort of psychological disturbance and bounced Scheffler out of Hamline. Rather than wait to the end of the semester and then invite Scheffler to continue his education elsewhere, though, Hamline treated him like a psychotic and barred him immediately from campus until he got psychological help. Thank you, Comrade Stern. Glad to see you're looking out for your students. Scheffler obeyed the campus ban and didn't go to class, but his classmate, Kenny Bucholz, told him a police officer was stationed outside the classroom. 'He had a gun and everything,' Bucholz says. Dean Julian Schuster appeared at the beginning of class to explain the presence of the cop, citing discipline problems with a student [a patent lie -RT] Although Schuster never mentioned Scheffler by name, it didn't take a scholar to see whose desk was empty." Talk about a "totalitarian regime!" To brand a good student as "a discipline problem" and in need of "psychological help" because he disagreed with the school's "pronouncement" stinks to high Heaven." (Find the Boots)

Just One Week

"Many Islamofascist activities get lost in the welter of 24/7 news. But when viewed together in one place, the threats, intercepted attacks, real attacks, diplomatic maneuvers or inaction all confirm radical Islam's unity of intent. Here, in no particular order and excluding the war in Lebanon, is a sampling from the densely packed events of one week in "06: " (Investor's Business Daily,)

Kerry Scares the Hell Out of Me!

It especially frightens me that this guy came within a "whisker" of becoming our president. "Bui Tin, the North Vietnam army colonel who accepted South Vietnam's surrender in 1975 and later left for exile as a dissident against the communist Hanoi government, called the anti-war movement Kerry and Fonda helped lead in the U.S. in the early 1970s 'essential to our strategy.' " And Kerry has been doing everything he can ever since to oppose us in every policy originated by a Republican, even if that opposition causes many deaths. The Democrats, too.

Iranians May Be Getting Smarter

While Americans just showed their collective ignorance by giving majority power in the Congress back to Democtrats, Iranians, who made a similar mistake when they voted Ahmadinejad into the presidency of Iran, are showing signs of a return to intelligence: "While trying to project his image as a world leader offering an alternative to "American hegemony", President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of the Islamic Republic of Iran may be heading for his first major political defeat at home. In fact, some analysts in Tehran expect his defeat to be so decisive as to puncture the super-inflated image created by his friends and foes, albeit for different reasons." Will that make him shut up? Doubtful. Only being "thrown out" of office MIGHT do that. He thinks he's the most important individual in Iran. He even thinks he can put the story of 6 million Jews being murdered by the Nazis "up for debate," just because he said so. Six million Jews who died, and their relatives, might have something to say about that. (Arab News,)

Clinton to Garnish Wages for Universal Health Care?

Hillary Screams
That sounds about as idiotic as anything I've heard her, or anybody say. Where the hell does she get the idea a president can just "garnish" people's wages to pay for her political dreams, whether or not they want the "snake oil" she's selling? Does she expect to be elected dictator? Wages are garnished when you don't pay a bill you owe, not when the president thinks you should pay for her flights of fancy. (As far as that's concerned, I hope she never sees the chair behind the desk in the Oval Office again, except as a visitor) If she ever gets elected and carries out this threat, I promise to quit whatever job I have and send her the finger in a "nice note." Oh, by the way. I'll probably also sue the government because such an action would be patently unconstitutional. But the best way to handle her is to make sure she never gets near that office.

Jihad Updated

The terrorists aren't just beheading people and blowing them up any more. Now they're actively looking for people able to crack the most well protected computers to create "cyberterror." They don't care how they kill people, they just want to kill people ("people" being all who don't agree with them). "CBP (Customs and Border Protection) is in charge of securing our borders from terrorists and any WMD they might smuggle in to launch a crippling attack. The Secret Service protects the president and Cabinet members, and plays a key role in investigating money laundering and identity theft -- two crimes that support terrorist activity. 'Worms have already crashed the CBP network that operates anti-terror screening systems at airports. Last year, a virus knocked out electronic watch lists for several hours at JFK, LAX, O'Hare and Miami International, as well as other major airports around the country. CBP agents had no emergency backup system and had to process foreign visitors by hand using hot sheets, delaying flights and thousands of passengers. The virulent worm reportedly got through the firewall protecting the DHS main servers in Northern Virginia." How bad can that be, you ask? Picture terrorists hacking airport control computers and crashing airplanes in wholesale numbers. What if YOU were on one of those airplanes? And that's only ONE scenario.

Castro Quits (?)

Castro at one of his 3-hour speeches in 2004
Does anybody believe that will make any difference to the citizens of that "island prison" called Cuba? Will his political prisoners be released? Will he let Elian Gonzales out of his "island prison?" Will Cuba's government renounce communism or collectivism? (same thing, different name) I'll believe things will change in Cuba when his entire regime is overthrown and he and his brother are dead (maybe soon). Then only when I see a real capitalist society emerging. Resigning the presidency means nothing if you're Fidel Castro. Especially with your brother sitting in the seat formerly held by you. Does he really think his "enemies" will back off on their enmity because he "says" he's quitting? Is "communism dead in Russia?" Not even! Are the same people who "used to be communists" still running things in that socialist state? It didn't happen in Russia and it won't happen in Cuba until Fidel and all his communist friends are dead or thrown out of the country (I prefer the former rather than the latter because as long as they are alive somewhere, they're a danger to freedom.).

"Anonymous" wrote a criticism of my "Hillary Is A Menace!" post in which he /she said, "Does JFK's statement, 'Ask not what your country can do for you, ask instead what you can do for your country?' Mean anything to you? There seems to be a glitch at work in my system preventing an answer in the usual place. So I'll answer here. Frankly, I think he/she's confused. He/she says, "What if everybody only thought of numero uno? Where would we be now?" The answer is, we'd be much further than we are now, with so many people wanting what belongs to others without the bother of EARNING it. JFK's statement referred to what YOU could do, not what THE GOVERNMENT could do. What Hillary wants is to get people to let government (her) do it for you, with other people's money) It is INDIVIDUAL INITIATIVE that BUILT this country, not socialism, and that is where Hillary would take us. Socialism is what is running most other countries. Countries that rely on the US to bail them out of what their socialist policies have led them to. We have bypassed every other country in the world in about 250 years because of our capitalist (individualist) economy, while other countries have had THOUSANDS of years of socialism and failed. JFK was a liberal, but liberalism then would be criticized as "conservatism" by today's liberals, who are frankly blatant collectivists (socialists). In fact, JFK was one president who, despite his other errors, did one thing that was VERY conservative: he LOWERED taxes, and therefore INCREASED the "tax take." Maybe if "Anonymous" would use his head a little more, he might not have to hide behind the "Anonymous" moniker when commenting. I probably shouldn't even bother, but his comment was so completely confused, I thought it best to set things straight. (Just common sense)

Way to Go! (I Thinkl)

The Immigration "service, now known as "ICE," whose name was changed (Who knows for what reason) some time ago, raided six plants owned by Swift & Co. in as many states, hoping to capture many illegals using stolen identification. Good for them! Not so good for them is their timing, just before Christmas, and their action in refusing to give ANYBODY any information about where they took those (said to be about 200) they took away in tinted window buses (so nobody could see how many they took), or what was going to happen to them. Their families and their children (now left without parents) are very worried, and the "jack-booted thugs" who won't tell them anything don't seem to care. I thought only dictatorships, which are "all-powerful," could just "disappear" people. This kind of heavy-handed action is something we just don't expect in the United States, where law enforcement is supposed to be "transparent." Seems to me President Bush ought to send out an Executive Order to force them to tell people where these people are, what is going to happen to them, and when. That's the way we do things in America. (My Way,)

From Winning to Losing

"How did we go from winning the war in Iraq to losing overnight? Was this decided by the same committee that changed 'Peking' to 'Beijing'?" The liberals like to maintain that we're "losing" in Iraq because we haven't yet gotten a handle on the former Saddam loyalists who are killing not only us and the Jews, but each other. Actually, we WON the war in Iraq in the first week when Saddam was ousted and made to hide in a hole in the ground to keep from being killed. That was our main goal in Iraq: to get rid of Saddam as a "power" and remove at least one major "sanctuary" for terrorists in the Middle East. The other goal would take more time because most denizens of the Middle East just don't understand a representative government and are easily swayed by the "usual suspects," their Imams, to whose lies they've been listening for eons. Yes, the killing continues in Iraq. Mostly because the killers are much harder to identify and eliminate than in a "standard war." They don't attack "hardened" military targets. They instead attack shopping centers where their victims are not prepared to fight back and where their attacks are completely unsuspected. All they care about is killing. They don't care who they kill, as long as they are killing. Their target base is large, because it is EVERYBODY who does not believe the same way they do. (Syndicated columnist Ann Coulter,)

Vegetarian Study: "Vegetarians Are Smarter"

A recent "study" by vegetarians says vegetarians are smarter than "meat-eaters." (Surprise, surprise!) "Liz O'Neill, of the Vegetarian Society, said: 'We've always known that vegetarianism is an intelligent, compassionate choice benefiting animals, people and the environment. Now, we've got the scientific evidence to prove it.' " Really! A closer look at the results show that children who were ALREADY smarter, but who BECAME vegetarians REMAINED "smarter." But there are no figures to show how children who were ALREADY smarter, but who did not adopt vegetarianism, fared. They did not "study" that. In any case, I suspect results from a "study" sponsored by ANY group that says THAT group is better. Frankly, I could live without meat in my diet. Some vegetarian meals are quite tasty. But I see no reason to completely ELIMINATE meat, even after this slanted study. (This Is London )

"Dirty Politics?"

Che Guevarra on Obama's Wall
That's what the Obama folks will call it, but I'm not really surprised to find a Che Guevarra picture on Obama's office wall, knowing he is at the very least, a socialist. Che was a major representative of another socialist (communist) regime, in Cuba. One that is still operating due to the money sent them by yet another communist regime in Venezuela, headed by another dictator, Hugo Chavez after the communist regime in Russia could no longer buy Cuba's entire sugar crop or sell them ALL the gas and oil they needed (they could not produce any themselves). It is the assistance of such communist dictators that has "propped up" the Castro regime all these years. Democrats in America still love Castro, so it's not a surprise that Obama has his picture on his wall. He won't wear an American Flag on his lapel, which tells me he disdains his own country in an effort to convince the gullible he is "neutral." I don't buy it. (Breitbart)

Romney Quits

Mitt Romney, who has consistently placed better than Huckabee, is "giving it up." I thought it was silly for Huckabee to suggest that he pull out, the other day. But it looks like it's going to happen. Not that we're better off with Romney gone, and we would not be with Huckabee gone. Even while he's pulling out, I hear it said that "Mitt Romney is the conservative's conservative." What a load! There ARE no conservatives in the race on the Republican side, and certainly not on the Democrat side. Romney can't even say it! He says he's "suspending" his candidacy ('till next election, I guess). In quitting, he said that he didn't want his candidacy to allow a victory for the Democrats, who have shown that they want to "cut and run" from those "17th-century rag-heads" that we're beating now. The only real conservative in the race (Fred Thompson) couldn't get any support from the "elite Republicans" and pulled out a long time ago. It looks like we're going to have to suffer another four years (maybe eight, if voters are stupid enough) of Democrat incompetence in the White House, AND in the Congress (even if McCain wins). The only hope I have is that it won't be our "Evita Peron," Hillary Clinton. She thinks the presidency is hers by default. I'd like to see her disabused of that notion. If she gets elected, watch for an attempt to make her "President for Life," with BIll as either vice-president or Secretary General of the United Nations. If I'm lucky, I won't live to see that if it happens. Obama's not much better, since his record shows he's a "committed socialist," whether he (or anybody else) either realizes it or admits it. If Hillary gets elected, I'm going to buy a big gun, because I'm going to need it when the Islamic terrorists get here, as they will when she surrenders and creates policies (as her husband did) to cripple our intelligence services and our military.
