This is a story that has been dead for awhile but has now resurfaced with the release from jail of one of the key players, New York Times reporter Judith Miller. If you can recall several months ago the press went wild over the possibility of, "catching," White House Chief of Staff Karl Rove in a scandal involving the alleged outing of the wife of a Democrat mouth piece and former ambassador Joe Wilson. His wife Valerie Plame a former CIA covert operative was involved with the intel for the investigation of Iraq's WMD program. Although she had been outed by the CIA and a book written by Wilson several years before the accusation that was leveled at Rove was that he, in a conversation with Miller and a fellow reporter from Time Magazine Matthew Cooper over the phone, was the source of the outing of Plame, (I've still never been able to figure out how one can out an agent that has already BEEN outed!). Cooper readily testified before a Grand Jury that Rove was his source and Miller refused to divulge her's thus was sent to jail for contempt of court and has been there for the last three months. Now we that have followed this story from the beginning know that Rove actually informed both Miller and Cooper that they wanted, "nothing to do with this story, " and that both reporters made the called to Rove to question him concerning another subject then shifted gears to the subject of Plame. This was followed by the false accusation that Rove illegally outed an," acting," CIA operative which of course was not the case. Today Miller testified before the Grand Jury that her actual source was Lewis, "Scooter, " Libby the Chief of Staff to the Vice President. Now she is being labeled as a hero and a martyr for the cause of the first amendment for going to jail rather than reveal a source, a source that EVERYBODY already knew as such and who was accused in the same false manner as Rove. These false accusations of Rove and Libby are just another of several attempts by the libs to bring down powerful members of the Bush administration and Congress to derail the conservative agenda. Tom DeLay is the latest of the falsely accused that have been caught up in this political witch hunt that is designed to destroy the President by eliminating one by one those who serve under him. The hate that the left has for Bush has caused them to loose all sense of responsibility and sanity and not only does it disrupt the important issues that need to be addressed, it also in the long and short run damages the nation and we the people. This political grand standing and character assassination accomplishes nothing except to prove that the Dems have no ideas or conscience much less leadership to address the issues of the day. They have become a disfunctional corrupt party that only has obstruction and discord as its agenda and hatred of this country as its creed. They will lie and cheat and destroy anything in their path to fulfill their greedy lust for power and attempt to reclaim the White House, Senate and House. They see their hold on the activist judiciary dwindling with the confirmation of Chief Justice Roberts and will sacrifice our troops, our freedoms and liberties and the very people that they are sworn to serve for this mad lust for power. The very things that they continually accuse the conservatives of are those deeds that they themselves are actively involved in. They cannot see the truth if it hit them in the head and will not tell the truth for any reason. This is the pulse of the left today and of course they always claim to , "speak for the American people." Well they don't speak for me and rest assured they do not speak for the vast majority of America. This is why they do not win and cannot win at the ballot box. They don't get it and their intellectual arrogance will always prevent them from understanding that their leftist, socialist and immoral agenda is NOT what we the people want now or ever!

House Majority leader Tom DeLay (R) Tx, was indicted today on a felony charge of conspiring with two Texas state legislators in a campaign financing scheme. That is at least how the liberal media, (who have been swarming on this story all day like bees on honey), have reported the Grand Jury indictment as it was handed down today. Now my question is how many on the left including House Minority Leader Nancy Polosi and other Democrat, "leaders," have actually read the indictment, (click on this post's title to read the three page indictment). Texas prosecutor Ronnie Earle has been attempting to charge DeLay with," something," in a witch hunt that has lasted for the last ten years and has made a career of indicating Texas Republican office holders including Texas Senator Kay Bailey Huchinson. To date all of the indictments that this partisan Democratic prosecutor has issued in this political witch hunt have been thrown out and NEVER come to trial. In the indictment several state legislators are mentioned and specific charges are stated for each yet DeLay who is the most prominent in the order is only mentioned ONCE without specific charges and only as an, "intentional conspirator," in a scheme to more or less launder campaign donations to bypass a law in Texas that does not allow corporate donations in the final 60 days before an election. I am not the most savvy individual when it comes to the full legalize of the law but have noticed that when a conspiracy charge is filed that two things exist on the part of the prosecutor. One, no real evidence exists and two, conspiracy is nearly impossible to prove, which helps in legitimizing the idea that this is a political witch hunt against Tom DeLay. Never the less the libs are rejoicing today because in accordance with House rules DeLay had to step down from his leadership position until this is settled, which is what the Dems have wanted all along for DeLay is a powerful leader and has been VERY successful in pushing the conservative agenda through the House. This is once again a case of the seriousness of the charge syndrome that rules the Democrats in Congress. Unfortunately this time it has at least momentarily succeeded in reaching into the leadership of the Republican Party leaving a wound that the press and the Dems will continue to bleed for the near future!

The irresponsible reporting by the press and the emotionally charged reaction by local officials during the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Katrina along with the debacle that the city and state of Louisiana caused are now finally being revealed as the truth, as it always does, becomes known. As the waters were rising in New Orleans the rumor mill that always appears in the wake of such devastation was being reported without confirmation of the truth and Mayor Ray Nagin and other city and state officials were compounding this by blatantly telling of these exaggerated stories in numerous press conferences in the days after the storm. False report of babies being murdered and raped in the Convention Center and Superdome were rampant. Reports of the evacuees living with hundreds of dead bodies and murders taking place by the minute were headlines and none of these stories were being confirmed, just reported as they were heard then being touted as the truth! When doctors arrived at the Superdome when the building was cleared they came expecting to carry away hundreds and found only ten, eight of which died of natural causes, one was a suicide and the tenth died elsewhere and was brought to the Dome . One week after the flooding members of the Arkansas National Guard reported 30-40 bodies in a freezer at the Convention Center and this too was widely reported, yet when the body count from the Center was revealed the total was four. Now this does not take away or diminish the chaos that the city was in after Katrina nor the fact that city officials did not have any control or handle of the situation. For instance more then 200 city police officers are being investigated and will be brought up on charges of desertion and derelict of duty as they ran from their posts during the chaos that followed. The blatant irresponsible reporting by the press and the exaggeration and out right falsehoods expressed by city officials not only added to the panic that the city was in but I dare say may have cost lives as the situation worsened and officials were too busy looking for a camera to complain to instead of doing their job while reporters looked for the sensational rather than the truth!

I was waiting for this to hit the news from the moment that I saw the first commercial concerning this show! Tonight, ( a show I won't watch because I can't stand her politics), Gina Davis stars in the new ABC series, "Commander In Chief." The story basically sets up Davis as Vice President then because of the death of the President, Davis becomes the Prez! Hildabeast fans see this as a prelude to the future as Davis portrays a Hildabeast wannabe and the premise of the fan worship is that this show will reveal to the world what a Hildabeast Presidency would be like. Much in the same way that, "The West Wing," was supposed to be like her husband Bubba and the Movie, "The American President, " was Rob Riener's idea of what he saw as the Bubba Presidency...Yeah right to all of the above. Leave it to liberal television to mask campaigning as a television show. I can hear the talking heads and the morning shows, oh yes and Oprah too, praising this as the way things ought to be after the Hildabeast wins election in 2008. Go ahead and dream on libs, even you are allowed your fantasies and a fantasy is all that they will remain! The Hildabeast watch continues.

I realize that this is yesterday's news and I purposely did not post anything about it when it happened because I am tired of this woman's exploitation of her son and her ridiculous lies and intentional exaggerations concerning the President and the war and the continual talk about her adds credibility in some circles. Yet as I listened to talk radio and the news services the realization that she is still a story demanded that I make at least a small comment. First no one deserves arrest more than Cindy Sheehan. Her anti - American rhetoric is an act of sedition for she undermines the war and insults the brave service of our troops as well as boosting the enemy by calling these sadistic murderers, "freedom fighters." Second, maybe now that she has spent time in the slammer this lunatic will realize that her son deserves more than being paraded around the country as a symbol of everything that he was against and the sacrifice of his life helped to pay the price of the liberties that Sheehan attempts to degrade and degenerate by her actions and her disgusting mouth. I doubt that her arrest will shut her up, but maybe, just maybe the press will stop following her like she is royalty and we won't have to hear the shrill of her insulting attitude again!

Stating today that,"diversity is one of the strengths of the country," the President hinted that the next Supreme Court nominee may be a woman or a member of a minority. As the President looks for the replacement of retiring Justice Sandra Day O'Connor he is receiving pressure from all sides to pick a woman or minority. Yet as we found with the nomination of John Roberts, Bush chooses his nominees based on their qualifications to sit on the High Court. Nearly every expert agrees that Roberts is one of the best qualified nominees to ever be appointed to the court. Two thirds of 100 Senators have already indicated that they will vote to confirm Judge Roberts thus making his confirmation a near certain probability. Even though the vote crosses party lines there is still some opposition to Roberts by the left so his confirmation is not yet absolute, but most agree that he will be on the court when the next session begins October 3. In a related story, (\Nation\archive\200509\NAT20050926b.html) , the Bush administration has requested that the Supreme Court reinstate the federal ban on partial - birth abortion. The case is expected to be on the court docket in November which will be one of the first cases presided over by Judge Roberts if he is confirmed. The left is shaking in their boots over the possibility that a more conservative court will over turn Roe vs Wade so I'm sure that this case will attract a great deal of attention when the court hears it especially with a Chief Justice Roberts on the bench!

Once again the left is depending on Hollywood to express their agenda. "Global Warming Expert," Barbara Steisand was actually taken seriously in an ABC interview with Diane Sawyer as she claimed that Hurricanes Katrina and Rita are the result of global warming. Despite evidence to the contrary provided by a true expert Max Mayfield of the National Hurricane Center, Ms. Streisand not only claims that these hurricanes are a result of global warming but that the Andes mountains no longer have ice caps and that the United States will once again experience the dust bowls and droughts that were experienced in the mid 20th century. This of course she blames on the US not participating in the Kyoto Treaty which puts her in line with other, "experts, " such as Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Today on the Saun Hannity show he once again stated that our non participation with Kyoto was a direct cause to global warming and that the hurricanes were a result guessed it global warming! Once again when faced with evidence to the contrary by Hannity stating that the intensity and frequency of hurricanes was actually more in the first half of the 20th century than the second half Kennedy stuck to his agenda. Just as with Babs, RFK Jr. ignored the evidence and continued regurgitate the political agenda! Liberals are never interested with proof or evidence when it disagrees with their political agenda and these two leftist enviromentalists whacos are no exceptions!

The second devastating storm to hit the Gulf Coast in less than a month, Hurricane Rita, has now moved inland and forecasters are still not quite sure where she will go. Rita came ashore as a category three storm with a 15 foot storm surge and torrential rains. Some locations received more than a foot of rain with flooding wide spread throughout the region. Yet despite the devastation and the problems caused by Rita the once category five storm lost some of its punch before land fall and did not leave a path of destruction that compared to that left by Hurricane Katrina. Governor Kathleen Blanco who failed miserably in the aftermath of Katrina and now dealing with a second land fall in her state actually made some sense in a press conference that I caught the replay of last night on CSPAN. The Governor in order to minimize red tape has requested that Rita and Katrina be treated as one event therefore simply adding the areas affected by Rita that were not affected by Katrina thus expediting the relief effort. It seems that the heat that she received after Katrina has caused her to wake up and act instead of the terrible hesitation that she was plagued with after Katrina. Lake Charles was hardest hit in Louisiana and New Orleans is under water again. Texas reacted in a very timely manner. Despite the complaints that were leveled during the major traffic jams during evacuation, the Lt. Governor stated that Texas declares a state of emergency whenever a storm actually enters the Gulf and goes on the assumption that Texas will be affected. This causes all emergency services to kick in well before the storm. The Mayor of Galveston opened the city back to residents as of 6 AM this morning warning that it's not going to be comfortable with the power and many other services out but, "ya'll come home!" Some of the more hardest hit cities such as Port Arthur and Beaumont have dawn to dusk curfews and despite the damage Port Arthur had water service back on within a few hours after the storm. Reports of damage to two Texas refineries should not cause large disruption of the flow of gas from the region and with the advent of the Congressional commission to investigate price gouging the oil companies are going to be very cautious about raising prices . The President was in Texas throughout the storm personally over seeing all disaster related efforts and insuring, by his presence and authority that the debacle that occurred after Katrina would not be repeated! All in all Rita has proven to be less than expected but still leaves quite a bit of cleanup and recovery for everyone in her wake. God bless everyone in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama recovering from the storms.

Hurricane Rita is pounding the coast of Louisiana and Texas as this post is being written. First our thoughts and prayers go out to the people in the path of this powerful storm. Yet even as the winds blow and the rains continues to fall the race card once again shows its ugly face in the path of Rita as it did with Katrina. A Fox News story covering the plight of the black and Hispanic population in the Houston area stressed that those ethnic groups because of poverty didn't have that same opportunity for evacuation as did those with better financial means. Now don't get me wrong my heart goes out to ANYONE who remains in the path of a powerful hurricane, but let's face facts. Every hurricane regardless of where it makes land fall effects poverty stricken areas and communities with less diversified ethnic groups such as black and Hispanic. Yes, means should and are made to evacuate those who do not have the means and personal responsibility is also a factor in any evacuation but since the aftermath of Katrina and the scenes that were played over and over again in New Orleans this seems to have become one of the lead stories in hurricane coverage. Hurricanes do not discriminate according to race or income nor do they specifically choose an area that has more or less poverty, yet since Katrina the press is obsessed with both and race has now become a factor in hurricane coverage. With Katrina it has become such a force that much of the suffering that took place has been over shadowed and hardly covered. The Mississippi coast suffered FAR more damage and physical devastation than New Orleans, yet the focus of 80% of the coverage and the fund raising events that followed have been toward New Orleans because of how poverty and race were played out in the aftermath thus leaving others effected by the storm left out in the cold. This is not to say that other parts of the coast are not being helped but knowing from experience how donated monies are allocated if the donation is specified for a certain area or need THAT is what that money is used for! With all of the emphasis on New Orleans for the reasons mentioned above, New Orleans and its residents have received the lions share of the assistance which can cause shortages to others who deserve it just as much. With the race card beginning to show its face in the coverage of Rita let's hope that it fades as the storm diminishes in strength. Recovery from a hurricane is difficult enough without ones ethnic background playing into the equation. Everyone affected in the storm is an American and as an American should be treated equally regardless of who he/she is. This emphasis on race and financial means must not continue to be a factor in the future or we will soon find ourselves knit picking in an evacuation in order to be politically correct and one of these storms will leave thousands dead in its wake.

In a follow up to a post written here on Thursday concerning a Presidential run between the Hildabeast and Mr. Excitement, Al Gore, the Daily Kos Blog ran a poll to find the pulse of the far left and their Presidential preferences. With her more centrist move to garner votes, (yes votes not her true beliefs), the Hildabeast has lost ground with the left in her own party, ironically the very people who can supply the campaign funds and give her the nomination for the Dems. The Kos poll of 10,000 readers gave the nod to Wesley Clark, (34%), with Russ Fiengold, (19%), and John Edwards, (10%), following, the Hildabeast received only 8% in the poll which was down by 2% from the last poll taken in June. Although the poll is not scientific it is significant since those who participated in the poll are readers of a VERY left wing blog therefore their opinion does represent a prominent position within the Democrat Party and it would seem that the Hildabeast is continually loosing their support. How does this shape up for 2008 ? Without the support of the far left of the Democrat Party Hillary does not stand a chance in receiving the nomination. First, the campaign donations from within the party will dry up since the far left IS the money and they too control the 527's which played a very prominent roll in the election of 2004 and stand to be an even stronger force in 08. Second, even though many of the elected member's of the party do not associate, (at least publicly), with the far left, they control the party platform and thus the pulse of the party. For example, when the Dems were looking to replace McAuliffe as party chair speculation was that a more moderate individual would take his place. The far left would not hear of it and when the votes were tallied, Howard Dean was the result a true spokesman for the left! It is well known that he and the Hildabeast are not the best of friends. One of two things will begin to take shape over the next year. Either Hillary will continue with her false moderate look or she will realize that she cannot win the nomination unless she shows her true colors and begins courting the left wing of her party. Either way she looses. If she stays centrist, she looses party support. If she shows her true liberal colors she looses moderate support which she needs for the general election. This should be very interesting to watch! The Hildabeast watch continues.

3,413,850 barrels each day. That is the total output of refined oil that the refineries in the Galveston, Texas area produce each day, slightly more than the daily output from the refineries in the area effected by Hurricane Katrina. The futures speculators are already throwing a panic into the market by raising the price of a barrel of oil by $10 today. Unfortunately for the last two years the futures market has driven the price of oil creating a false bubble that has consistently kept prices much higher than the supply and demand market actually warrants. For instance when King Fahad of Saudi Arabia died recently the futures market went up $4 a barrel because of fear that a new King, "would change oil production, " in Saudi Arabia. Now more than two years ago Fahad had a stroke and his brother took on the duties of King and then upon his death became King. Nothing changed during the preceding two years and nothing changed after Fahad's death, yet the $4 price hike did not correct itself as has been the case since the out of control futures market began fear speculating at the beginning of the Iraq war. In an interview that I heard last week with Steve Forbes, he stated that the bubble will burst forcing the market to correct itself. That is the way a free market economy works. Forbes believes that this correction will take place in the first six months of next year and the price of a barrel of oil will drop to between $30 and $40 per barrel dropping the price at the pump to below $1.50 a gallon. Even with all of the over speculating by the futures market the loss of oil because of Katrina and Rita, approximately 29% of all oil production in the United States, once again stresses the problem that the left and environmentalists have created by forcing legislation that has prevented domestic oil finds from being harvested and new refineries being constructed. The last new refinery was built in the early seventies and as we all know oil consumption in the States has increased many times over since then. The time has come to force the issue and quit bowing to the left's agenda especially when it comes to energy consumption in this country. This is also a National Security issue. Suppose a terrorist took out one or more refineries. The recovery would not be as swift as it has and will be after a hurricane! There is NO excuse for a natural disaster to cause the panic over oil that Katrina created and that I'm sure Rita will repeat, especially since the loss of production is so preventable by harvesting our on oil and increasing our refinery capabilities. Until the Congress gets the guts to finally stand up to the left and the environmental nuts, we the people will continue to pay the price from our pocket books to the pump!

"Her Mouthness," against," His Dullness! " Now that would make for a very interesting primary run for the Democratic Party. Al Gore has been in the news quite a lot lately and there is speculation that," his dullness," is positioning himself for another run at the Presidency ! His main obstacle of course is the Hildabeast. Political analyst believe that one advantage that Gore has over Hillary is that he was the first prominent Democrat to come out against the war and Hillary has been backing the war and voting for war related legislation. This is a policy that doesn't sit well with the leftist anti war crowd in the Democratic Party and this fringe is actually more the core of the party and the DNC Chair Howard Dean agrees with them. An additional advantage to," his dullness," is that this anti war voice in the party controls most of the campaign donations and the 527's which will back any anti war candidate and the Hidabeast, at least at this point does not have their full support. Comparisons are already being made to the political comeback that Richard Nixon made in 1968. After virtually years of political obscurity Nixon rebounded into the Presidency and many believe the Gore has that same comeback capability from about the same time in political obscurity. Can," his dullness," defeat the Hildabeast ? A very distinct possibility. Can," his dullness," wing his way to the Presidency. Gore was not any more popular in the red states than Kerry and I don't believe that this fact will change much over the next several years. The Hildabeast watch continues.

There have been numerous articles and news reports stating that the recent rash of killer hurricanes are a result of global warming, a theory that has not been proven, which suggests that man, (especially the United States), is responsible for climate changes. These same people also claim that global warming is melting the polar ice caps, a theory too which has not been backed with proof. First, a proven fact is that seasons which produce numerous hurricanes go through cycles which appear approximately every fifty years the last of which began in the late forties and ended in the early sixties. Every hurricane expert agrees that global warming is not the cause of Katrina, Rita and the extensive number of hurricanes over the last few years. Second, there have been numerous reports of quite a bit of activity on the Sun which is sending a great deal of radiated heat our direction. Coincidently the planet Mars is experiencing much of the same climate changes as the Earth. The Mars rover has revealed that the polar caps on our closest neighbor are shrinking, ironically the same claim that the global warming whiners say is happening to Earth. Now if man is causing the climate changes on Earth then WHO pray tell is causing the climate changes on Mars ? Could it possibly be that the same source that supplies heat to BOTH planets is the cause as the Sun goes through a heating cycle, a cycle that the Sun has experienced MANY times in the past ? Maybe H.G. Wells was actually a fortune teller and The War of the Worlds was an encyclopedia of Earths doom. Personally I believe that the latter is more likely than the former and that the global warming whiners are full of hot air and our beloved planet is just going through changes like it has since God created it.

When I heard this yesterday I initially thought it was a joke then I discovered that not only is it NOT a joke there is actually a marketing campaign to get these items distributed. The Clinton legacy has finally been revealed. A Chinese firm is, "honoring," (yes honoring), Bubba with a brand of heavy duty condoms named after him. The companion product which is marketed as not quite as strong are named after Clinton's White House companion, Monica Lewinsky. The Clinton is a twelve pack which sells for $5.00 and the Lewinsky for $3.00. I'm sure that this is yet another thrill for the Hildabeast, especially with her aspirations for the Presidency. When you look at the big picture though it is yet another of a long line of embarrassments that William Jefferson has brought upon this country. A former President will have his name distributed worldwide on a package of prophylactics! The moral disintegration that Clinton brought upon this nation during his eight years in the White House have now become the joke of the world. First Bubba trades weapons secrets with the Chinese and now China reciprocates with a prophylactic in his honor. He was a joke as President and his legacy is an even larger joke. We still are paying for his disastrous policies and now the world laughs at our expense!

Former Al Gore political consultant Donna Brazile, a key member of the campaign that tried to defeat Bush in 2000, has come out publicly backing and praising the President concerning the Katrina recovery program and effort. I listened to part of an interview with Brazile yesterday on the Shaun Hannity radio program and was somewhat skeptical about how true her support was. As I listened to the interview and her reasons for backing the President I began to change my tone. It turns out that New Orleans is her home and she has a great deal of family effected by the storm. This usually leftist partisan political babe actually praised Bush for all that he has done and for the reconstruction program that has been proposed. She said that she was proud of the President and offered her support by stating, "Mr. President, I am ready for duty. Let's roll up our sleeves and get to work." For the racists who have claimed that Bush let the blacks in New Orleans suffer, Donna Brazile is black and condemns those who choose to play the race card. One could only wish that her political cronies would follow her example but alas liberals don't have it in their agenda to put aside partisan politics to be an American and not just a Democrat, Ms. Brazile is the exception and good for her.

As a conservative you got to love Howard Dean. This guy has done more to boost support for the Republican Party than many conservatives who support the RNC agenda. Dean has one gear when it comes to his mouth wide open and full of lies. This one is no exception. The Deaniac now claims to be the, " savior," of the Democratic Party. In an interview he claimed that the party was going in the wrong direction, (a statement that I can't disagree with but not in the same way as Dean), which of course is a slap in the face to,"The Punk," Terry McAuliffe and last years candidate John,"I served in Vietnam," Kerry. Dean said that the reason that Kerry lost was because he didn't have the backbone to defeat the President. Once again a liberal can't accept that the electorate rejected their agenda and continue to blame it on the candidate and not getting their message out! Granted Kerry WAS a sorry candidate but the Democrat agenda was worse and still Dean can't accept this. Personally I think that Howard Dean is insurance that Republicans will remain in control of the White House, the Senate and the House. Dean has successfully moved and already whacked out agenda even further left and every time he opens his mouth he irritates voters. So keep up the good work Howard even the Hildabeast can't overcome your ridiculous rhetoric and lies!

Talk about stabbing someone in the back. President Bush appointed Bill Clinton along with his father as fund raisers for the recovery effort for Hurricane Katrina. So how does Bubba repay the favor ? He stabs the President in the back in an interview by blaming the Bush Administration' s policies of, "tax cuts for the rich, " for the rampant poverty in Louisiana and the fact that that poverty is disproportionate with blacks. Has he forgotten 60 YEARS of corrupt DEMOCRAT leadership in Louisiana ? How about EIGHT YEARS of DEMOCRAT leadership in the White House in HIS administration during which the Louisiana problem grew ? Maybe his convenient memory has neglected to remember 40 YEARS of DEMOCRAT leadership in Congress which failed to quell the Louisiana poverty ! Remember the only way that a Democrat can insure a vote is to keep the individual dependent on promises of a better life. If the Democrat's ever lived up to their promises they would be out of a job. Unfortunately much of the African-American community has bought into 40 years of liberal lies and Bill Clinton in his interview continued that expression. I am sick of the race card being played in the wake of Katrina. Those who claim that they are not racists, namely the left, seem to be the only people playing the race card and the only people who see the victims of the hurricane by their color and not as fellow American's who need our help to recover. Now who's prejudice ? Certainly not the President nor those who are lending their money and their hand in the recovery. The racists are those who are whining about race!

I guess, "Meet The Press, " couldn't find anyone for the show yesterday so they went to their old standby ,"Bubba!" His wife the Hildabeast is running for re-election in New York and polls show that 60% of New Yorkers want her to pledge NOT to run for President before they will vote for her. Bubba's advice, "baby don't take the pledge!" Many experts believe that her Presidential run will begin BEFORE her second term in the Senate begins, providing that she wins re-election and the people of New York don't want an absent Senator, (I thought that's what they already had!). When Bubba ran for re-election for Governor in Arkansas he made the pledge to complete his term and less than one year later announced for the Presidency. So the advice to the Hildabeast is, "don't do as I do, do as I say!" I guess that the two of them are such prolific liars that telling the truth about any subject is determined by poll numbers and not by conscience. Of course when one has no conscience, which the Clinton's have proven the case many times over, falsehoods come easy! The Hildabeast watch continues.

This is one Senator that needs to be gagged and officially censured and removed from the Senate. In an interview with the Chicago Tribune," Mouthing," Mary said that she stands by her threat to, "punch the President," and even though the Secret Service takes this crime as a joke, Landrieu made it clear that she is serious. In the same interview she then changed faces and praised Bush for his, "innovative and bold, " plan for the Gulf Coast recovery. If this had been a Republican Senator threatening harm to a Democrat President all you no what would take place. I lived in North Carolina several years ago and I remember the flack that then Senator Jesse Helms caused when Clinton was planning a visit to the state. Helms said that Clinton should bring protection if he planned to visit NC, (Bubba was VERY unpopular in NC). Not only did the press go nuts but Helms, who didn't really care anyway was officially censured by Tom Daschle and the Democrat majority for his remarks, yet Landrieu actually personally threatens TWICE to slug the President and nothing is made of it. I am an old school advocate of treating a lady like a lady. I still open doors and believe that a lady should never be hit. Well first Landrieu has proven she is no lady and her mouth tends to make one forget that they are a gentleman!

You will love this one. In his attempt to be a global statesman, (now that's a laugh in itself), old William "Bubba" Jefferson Clinton conducted the, " Clinton Global Initiative Summit," last week. During Friday's session Alastair Cooke representing the British Conflicts Forum suggested that terrorist groups like Hamas and Hezbollah should be engaged through political means, (in other word negotiation and surrender), or the risk is promoting the existence of more radical organizations. When will these idiots realize that talk has and will never work with terrorists. They are dedicated to fear and death and even while they are talking they are sizing up how to kill you. Then Billy Boy dropped the big idea. He actual suggested they, " consider setting up some sort of insurance structure where, for a modest fee, an entrepreneur could participate in pooled insurance so that if something happened because of a terrorist act they could be made whole. " Now if memory serves, this sounds a lot like the way that organized crime gets, "protection," money from a business in their territory in order to guarantee that the business doesn't get hit. So now add, "Godfather," to the Clinton legacy. He has an, "offah dat yoose can't refuse !" Thank God that these stupid summits don't make global policy and especially United States policy.

On Thursday evening the President out lined his plan and initiatives for the recovery of the Gulf Coast from Hurricane Katrina. These programs are going to run into the billions and the first question out of the mouths of the liberal media, talking heads and even some conservatives was a concern about tax increases to pay for it. The President ruled tax increases out yesterday and instead proposed cutting government spending to cover the cost. This in itself was good news since one of the things that I have disagreed with Bush about is the rampant spending, (excluding the War on Terror), that has taken place during his administration. There have been many comparisons of this recovery program to FDR's, "New Deal, " and LBJ's , "Great Society." On the surface these comparisons can be made because each program consisted of large government spending to off set a problem that this country was trying to solve. Then as you look deeper into Bush's proposal the comparison to these two huge Democrat programs end. The New Deal was a massive program that brought about entitlements such as Social Security, Welfare and government building projects that all have been proven to actually have lengthened the duration of the Depression rather than quell it and have become a thorn in our side ever since all designed to increase dependence on the Federal Government. The Great Society was a massive welfare assistance program to give government control over the poverty stricken of the nation thus forcing continual dependence on the government. What the President is proposing first is a recovery from a natural disaster the likes of which we have never seen before, huge spending is something that ANY President would do in this situation, the difference is the approach. Second the programs proposed are not designed to increase dependency on the government but rather to actually allow the individuals effected to stand on their own feet and prosper by their own means once the recovery is complete. The programs come directly from the conservative play book of Ronald Reagan. The President stressed the importance of entrepreneurs in building businesses throughout the effected area. He also stressed home ownership as opposed to government housing and enterprise zones designed to boost the economy of what used to be impoverished areas. This is not a welfare assistance program but one that gives the individual the incentives to rebuild his/her life and then move on to be a prosperous member of society and NOT depend on the government. Sure the initial outpouring of funds to rebuild is an assistance program from the government but this is what the Federal Government was created for, to assist in an emergency and then allow the individual to go on with their life in a timely manner and by their own means once they have recovered. One of the ironic twists that has come out of all of this is that the President in proposing this conservative style rebuilding program actually has Bill Clinton raising money from his liberal buddies to help pay for it. The left has tried to blast the proposals but they are in the position of looking like fools if they attempt to derail this because so many of their constituents are effected. The President mentioned on Thursday that, "The Crescent City, " will rise again. If the programs that he has proposed are successful and the area rebuilds based on the individuals ability to control their life and not government dependency then we will truly see a new region that will far out shine the one that has been destroyed !

Throughout the day yesterday and also on Tuesday one of the top stories in the news was that Louisiana Governor Kathleen, "Let My People Die", Blanco was lamblasting FEMA and the President for not recovering the bodies in New Orleans quick enough. This despite the fact that when FEMA, (who is normally NOT responsible for this terrible task), offered to help with the recovery, the Governor's office turned them down and then proceeded to complain that the Feds were not helping! Well yesterday evening her tone changed when she spoke to the state legislature and took, "full responsibility, " for the Louisiana evacuation and recovery fiasco. Now why would this corrupt Democrat bureaucrat suddenly accept responsibility when just the day before she had played the blame game and in the few days after the storm went on the whining circuit to complain about how the Feds were not there and her people were suffering as a result. Well in between television interviews the hapless Governor was having a discussion with her press secretary and did not realize that her mike was still on and admitted that she blew it! "I really should have called for the military," she was heard to say, "I really should have started that in the FIRST call !" Prior to this accidental admittance of her blunder Blanco had been steadfast in her condemnation of the President then after this revelation went public in her home state the liberal Governor had nothing but praise for the President, "I want the people of Louisiana to know that we have a friend and a partner in President George W. Bush. I thank you, Mr. President." It is absolutely amazing how the truth finally comes out and how a liberal Democrat always blames someone else for their blunders.....that is until they are caught ! The transcript of her accidental admittance should be the lead sentence in her impeachment papers. Let's hope that this Governor is in her final days and that the corruption under Democrat leadership that has ruled the state of Louisiana for 60 years, since the days of Huey Long which is being revealed in the aftermath of Katrina will come to an end. But alas corrupt Democrats have a way of rebounding and running for the Senate in New York and cruising the world to get millions for speaking and building a legacy of lies......oh sorry wrong Democrats but same idea!

Once again Madame Hildabeast is making her future political aspirations obvious as she used a Manhattan campaign fundraiser as an opportunity to blast the President for the Katrina response. Screeching in her usual shrill voice Hillary claimed that the Bush administration's response to the storm , " has made a deep and lasting scar that we have to look at honestly." In a blatant reference to 9/11 the Hildabeast said , "we have had four years to fix our emergency response." I guess she has conveniently forgotten the embarrassment and moral degradation that the eight years that her husband was in office caused this nation and the world. Scars that we are still suffering from to this day, IE: Clinton's lack of response to any terrorist attack and the moral decline that shows in all aspects of our society ! She has also forgotten how slow her husband responded to disasters during his administration. It was five days before he showed his puffed out lip look in Oklahoma City and the response to Hurricane Floyd in 1999 was highly criticized. I served disaster service for the terrible flooding that trapped more than 2500 homes in my own home county here in South Carolina after Floyd and it took Clinton TWO WEEKS to even declare my state a disaster area so that Federal assistance could arrive despite several requests by the then Democrat Governor of South Carolina. But the Hildabeast, as we all know, only cares about anything that she thinks will gain her political favor and votes rather than the TRUTH ! The Hildabeast watch continues.

As if threatening to punch the President and claiming that it was Bush's fault that New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin didn't use the school buses for evacuation wasn't enough, mouthy Mary Landrieu, (D) LA, is now saying that the resignation of former FEMA director Mike Brown is not enough. Trying to intensify her unjustified criticisim of the Bush administration and the recovery from Hurricane Katrina in her home state Landrieu is demanding that the White House needs to be held responsible, this despite the fact that yesterday the President said HE was responsible for the failures at the Federal level! Landrieu has repeatedly ducked any type of criticism toward her own state and local officials in Louisiana and the criminal neglect that has and continues to be reported on both before and after the storm hit. Even when asked a direct question about the failures at the local level this liberal and corrupt Senator refused to direct any of the fault anywhere except the President as was the case with the lack of use of New Orleans city buses for evacuation purposes. I suppose she thinks that Bush should have traveled to Louisiana and driven the buses himself. Senator Landrieu, you need to look in your own back yard before you continue your finger pointing. ALL the evidence concerning the lack of preparedness before the storm points to Louisiana and much of the aftermath trouble points in the same direction. As always when has a liberal concerned themselves with evidence ? It's always, "the seriousness of the charge, " regardless if the evidence proves otherwise. Her own state is struggling and her response is to hit the news circuit and get her name in the news blaming the President. Come to think of it in all the visits that Bush has made to the area I remember seeing the Alabama and Mississippi Senators in the effected areas but never Landrieu in Louisiana ! It's that great liberal compassion once again, all mouth and no action.

From day one the blame game has been played by everyone involved and not involved with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina with one exception....President Bush. Throughout this catastrophe he has been the voice of encouragement and optimism and has continually stated that finger pointing does not solve the problem and the victims of this storm and taking care of their recovery was most important. The left has continually claimed that the President was at fault and many African - Americans have leveled the race card toward him. From the beginning he has as he has throughout his Presidency displayed the true traits of a good leader. Today is no different. The last man to actually carry blame for the debacle that has taken place during the recovery now says as Harry Truman said, "the buck stops here!" The President today took responsibility for the short comings of the Federal response to Hurricane Katrina, stating that, "Katrina exposed serious problems in our response capability at all levels of government. To the extent that the Federal Government didn't fully do its job, I TAKE RESPONSIBILITY." Even as failures were revealed by many levels from the City of New Orleans through the State of Louisiana and FEMA the President accepted the blame and I would hope shutting the trap of his critics who wish his destruction and who seem to be rejoicing in the misery that is taking place on the Gulf Coast in order to take political advantage of the President. This recovery has crossed all political, financial and racial barriers for Democrats and Republicans, rich and poor and ALL ethnicities have suffered yet to listen to the left, President Bush and the Republicans are to blame for the storm and the suffering of the poor and black in the aftermath. All of this of course is ludicrous and still the true leadership of the President shines as he takes responsibility. As we conservatives all know this will not stop the left. Rather than recognize true leadership they will jump on this as admitting that Bush is a failure and unfit for office, a claim they have tried to make since 2000. Just as he has done in the past the President will rise above the criticism and continue to do the job that we have elected him to do. Yes there are policies and decisions that I have disagreed with but President Bush has proven time and again that he is a true leader who not only has turned this country around from the destruction of the Clinton years but despite the most bitter hatred by an opposing party toward an elected official Bush stands tall in the face of his opposition and gets the job done for the greater good of the nation and the American people.

This has to be the epitome of the inept way that the evacuation and recovery was handled preceding and in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Doctors in a hospital in the New Orleans area injected patients with high doses of morphine to, "put them down" because they could not get the means to evacuate these patients ! I have heard the phrase, "put them down," used for animals but never for a human being. Euthanasia is illegal in Louisiana yet these doctors felt that this was their only option while the Mayor and the Governor were whining on television about how no one was helping. These patients should have been a priority of the city and the state even if the incompetent Mayor and Governor had to leave their comfortable surroundings and personally assist in this evacuation! This is absolutely tadamount to murder by the local officials who left medical personnel with what they believed was their only option. This while more than a thousand buses were left to the flood waters. Buses that BEFORE the storm hit could have been used for medical and individual evacuations. I am sick of listening to Mary Landrieu the moronic Democrat Senator from Louisiana defend this lack of preparedness by her state and from her own family members, (the Lt. Governor is her brother), and continue to blame the Bush administration and the Federal response. The key word here is RESPONSE ! The Feds respond to a disaster AFTER the Governor requests assistance. The sole responsibility of evacuation of all citizens falls in the lap of city, county and state officials. This incident with the patients re-emphasizes the absolutely criminal actions, or should I say lack of action on the part of Mayor Nagin, and Governor Blanco. People are not left to be , "put down," unless you live in Louisiana. I'm sure that somewhere down the line before all of this of over and this story begins to leak out further that someone will say that the President hates senior citizens and personally called the doctors and ordered them to, "put down, " these patients. This is just as absurd as the charges of race causing the, "slow" government response. Well let's put the ball now in the court where it truly lies. The Governor of Louisiana and the Mayor of New Orleans hate African- Americans and the elderly for their inept lack of planning and response after the storm caused the murder of these patients and the suffering in New Orleans. Take that liberals and see how the TRUTH sets with you!

Toady is Remembrance Day a day set aside to remember those who we as a nation lost on Tuesday September 11, 2001. Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the victims and their families. On Friday I shared my thoughts about this day and linked to a very moving remembrance of that awful and dreadful morning. Please look at the link and remember what we stand for as a nation, what we believe as a people and why we fight to preserve who we are. God bless the survivors and God bless America!

It has been four years, yet the images are just as fresh and real in our hearts and minds as if it were yesterday. It has been four years, yet the feeling of loss still leaves an empty place in the pit of our stomach. It has been four years and the faces of the heroes that ran into those trembling buildings as others ran out remind us of the greatest and best that America is. It has been four years and even in the midst of the devastation along the Gulf Coast we remember the heroes both surviving and fallen, the heroes who said, "let's roll," and prevented the nightmare on that day from becoming even more unbearable, the heroes who sacrificed in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania, though they did not choose and whose lives we mourn even unto this day. It has been four years and the skyline of Manhattan still looks lonely as the majestic towers that once were, leave a ghostly image as our minds eye still see them standing. Life has continued, much has been replaced and repaired. The tears have subsided except when we look back and remember and maybe that is our failure that in our anger and need for retribution we as a country have placed that feeling of loss and sorrow into a hidden place in our collective conscience that we have forgotten why we must fight and why we must stand for what we believe in and what we know are our blessings of liberty and freedom. Those that carried out that which we have lost still seek to destroy all that we are and prevent all that we can be. They still seek each day to try to take away as they did on that dreadful day in September the safety and security that we have always known because we are Americans. They seek to make the sacrifice that so many made on that day and still continue to make on the battlefields that exist to prevent such a day from happening again, a sacrifice that is in vain as they attempt to destroy this, "shining city on a hill." Yet despite their despicable attempts we still exist, freedom still shines and the light of liberty still shines in the harbor as a beacon overlooking and protecting that sacred place of sacrifice. Why ? Is it because we are a super power unmatched in history ? Is it because we have a resolve and determination that can overcome even the most bleak of circumstances ? Is it because we have an almost righteous purpose to preserve who we are ? Yes it is all of this and much more. Yet more than all it is because we are free and there is no power on this earth whether it is extremists who seek to kill us or storms which destroy that can take that freedom from us. It is our birth right as Americans given to us by the collective wisdom of our Founding Fathers and instilled within us through a Divine spark that all men are created equal and free and this nation embodies that and that is why we fight and that is why we die and that is why we must remember and never forget those images of that terrible day. Never forget those who gave their life both on that day and the many days that Americans have died protecting our freedom. As we remember on this fourth anniversary let us not take their sacrifice for granted. Let us replay those images in our mind and in the public forum so that we remember why we fight and why we must defeat the despicable terror. But most of all let us as one stand firm in our resolve and commitment to the memory of each sacrifice, of each heroic act of each who have shed their blood fighting for our liberty to live our life to fulfill the immortal words of Abraham Lincoln,"that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom, and that Government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the face of the earth."

Nine months before Hurricane Katrina three Louisiana Homeland Security officials were indicted for obstucting an audit of monies directed for flood prevention, IE: the levees. News has come out today from many different sources that the Bush administration has pumped 1.5 BILLION dollars into the Louisiana levee program to up date and prepare the levees to PREVENT the disaster that has occurred. These funds have been appropriated into the Louisiana coffers over the entire 5 years of the Bush Presidency, more money than to ANY other state in the Union! Yet the levees were not fixed and the flood happened with the blame directed toward the President and not the corrupt Louisiana state government. The money was used for other state projects that garnered more votes for state and federal politicians and not to protect the citizens that lived behind the levees. Even Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu (D) used an emergency appropriations bill for the Iraq war funding by tacking on a last minute amendment to order the Civil engineers to re-evaluate a study that stated that the levees around New Orleans were in disrepair and needed to be upgraded to prevent a disaster. This amendment was to delay the distribution of the flood prevention funds by the feds in order to give the state the opportunity to use it for pork barrel, vote getting projects. Levees don't buy votes! In a related story Bill O'reiley and Shaun Hannity have revealed a Fox News report that proves that the means to get water and food to the people in the Convention Center and the Superdome were available through the Red Cross BEFORE the flood began and the state of Louisiana officials denied them entrance stating that these sites were shelters, "of last resort" and if the people were helped they would want to stay and the state did not want that. So Louisiana CHOSE to allow their own citizens to starve and die in order to keep them from staying. This is criminal!! The state of Louisiana has much to answer for and I believe that murder in the second degree is not to harsh a charge. Officials beginning with the Governor intentionally let their people suffer and even allowed this to happen through corruption within the government long before Katrina hit the coast. If the libs want to investigate what happened they need to start in their own back yard and look straight in the face of a Democrat controlled state that has for the past 60 years been the most corrupt in the nation. Katrina revealed how liberals, who claim to be the party for the minorities and care with great compassion for the individual through their own corruption killed their constituents! When the ax falls and it will those responsible on all levels in the state should pay the piper for their neglect and illegal activities that caused this outrage!

In our continuing saga that we here at The Liberal Lie have titled, "The Hildabeast Watch," Hillary once again attempting to keep her name before the public thus politically taking advantage of the Katrina disaster, made the talk show rounds today beginning with the liberal bubble at the Today Show. She is calling for an independent commission to, "investigate," the federal response and an overhaul of FEMA. When asked why she's doing this, (no not the reasons that we conservatives know, brownie points with voters), Hillary claimed, "it's actually time to show that the government is competent," (leave office, that would prove it), and then blasted Republicans for attacking her for this attempt to garner votes by saying, "this is not a game!" Yes Madame Hildabeast this is not a game. You are not a Senator from ANY of the effected states and there are many more constructive ways to help those devastated by this storm than calling for an investigation. Contrast this with another possible Presidential candidate, Ruddy Giuliani who when asked if he would consider taking over the response said, "I don't know that I'd want, at this point to be a've got to get yourself out of the emergency first." Now this is a man who realizes that first things are first, take care of the emergency THEN clear up the problems to prevent them from happening in the future! In a related story, (, the mouth of the DNC, Howard Dean in a Katrina fund raising letter blasted the government by claiming that the federal response was directly responsible for, "the loss of American lives!" Great fund raising tactics, raise money for the relief while slandering those who are providing the effort and money to make this mammoth recovery happen! The Hildabeast and the, "Foaming Mouth," of Dean make a great combination for the Democrats. One is using every opportunity to look presidential before the American people which in itself is creating one of the great political lies of our time, while the other consistently opens his trap and proves that the libs care for nothing except the restoration of power and telling every imaginable lie to get that power back! Thank God that we the people are smarter than they give us credit for and are not buying into this load of garbage that the left tries to call, "speaking for the American people!" The Hildabeast and liberal watch continues!

Mayor Ray Nagin announced today that the 7th street levee that has been flooding New Orleans for more than a week has been repaired and the pumps are beginning to drain the city, which is just the beginning of the rebuilding of this vital Louisiana city. The Hildabeast, (who always has to get her two cents in when something that may buy her votes is concerned), is demanding that the President create a commission to investigate the slow response. Bush is calling for an additional 40 billion in hurricane relief, Senators from BOTH parties are screaming for blood and Kathleen Blanco Governor of Louisiana is quiet! I know she's busy but this Democrat has a mountain of things to answer for. After the city of New Orleans, the state is the next step in disaster response and in every aspect Gov. Blanco failed in her responsibility to the citizens of her state. The entire area was forwarned as long ago as 2003 that this type of devistation was possible. Yet they took NO action to correct an inexcusable problem! Even as late as last Friday President Bush met with Nagin and Blanco to try and force the issue for evacuating the remainder of the city and other needs that were demanding to be addressed and the President had to remove himself with Blanco from the meeting in order to lay the law down concerning the offering of federal assistance and her response was that she needed 24 HOURS to decide and give the President an answer! People were dying and their Governor needed 24 hours to decide on whether she would accept help! This according to a television interview with Nagin this morning. The President was following his Constitutional duty by allowing the state to take first steps and offering federal assistance which states usually jump on! Take for example the devistation in Florida last year. I don't remember Jeb Bush wringing his hands in anquish asking 24 hours to make a decision ! He jumped in with both feet at the state level first and then requested federal help and everything went smooth! When all of the rescue operations are over and the state of Louisiana begins to rise from the ashes left by Katrina then all of the investigations begin to bring to light the inept job performed by Kathleen Blanco, the state legislature should reply in only one manner. IMPEACH the Governor for high crimes and misdimeanors in neglegting to protect her citizens when it was in her power to do so!

Over the last several days the left has been playing the blame game for the slow response to the Hurricane Katrina disaster. Not surprising the blame has been focused toward the President and the Federal response. In a post that was written on the site last Friday, (, I broke down how any emergency response is coordinated beginning with the initial response as the responsibility of the local and state authorities who then, if needed, request Federal assistance. The truth is beginning to filter out showing that failures that were exposed last year in the New Orleans response to Hurricane Ivan, ( ), were not corrected since then and the failures were repeated in an identical fashion with Hurricane Katrina. In addition Governor Kathleen Blanco did not declare a state of emergency until Wednesday a full 48 hours after the disaster occurred, ( The President declared a state of emergency Saturday August 27 TWO DAYS BEFORE LAND FALL! This allowed, at the Governor's request the IMMEDIATE release of any Federal assistance needed. The Bush administration also submitted a request last Friday of a Federal take over of the New Orleans evacuation to hasten the matter and the Governor rejected that request! Yet to listen to the leftist media the President and Federal Government are the problem. If you look at what is happening now with the Feds in charge as opposed to what happened with the City and State in charge the difference is a condemnation to the Mayor of New Orleans, Ray Nagin, and Governor Blanco for the shameful lack of response and the neglect that THEY not the President gave to their own citizens! The death toll is still mounting and will not be known until all the flood waters are gone. I wonder if Governor Blanco and Mayor Nagin can sleep at night thinking of all the city residents who have died because of the response ? No I guess they are to busy blaming the Feds to accept any of THEIR responsibility!

Before returning to visit the devastated Gulf Coast this morning, the President announced the nomination of Judge John Roberts to succeed William Rehnquist, (who died Saturday), as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. This comes as somewhat of a surprise since there are two others, Scalia and Thomas who have seniority on the court and are conservatives. With two vacancies on the high court the President is actual shuffling paper work and changing Roberts nomination to succeed Rehnquist rather than Sandra Day O'Conner who announced her retirement earlier in the summer but said she would serve until a replacement is found. This swift move also signifies that the President is moving quickly to fill both vacancies and to try to insure little or no disruption in the work of the court. More significantly it also shows that Bush is reshaping the court and building a more conservative coalition with the nomination of Roberts as Chief. Roberts like Rehnquist could serve more than thirty years on the court but the difference is that Roberts would be chief throughout his term. Look for the libs to delay this nomination and the hearings for several reasons, not the least of which is that even with O'Conner staying on until her replacement is confirmed, the balance of the court as it stands at this moment leans more left which is exactly what the libs want so they might push there agenda through the high court while the opportunity presents itself. Senator Edward Kennedy has already eluded to this on Saturday immediately after the passing of Chief Rehnquist when he demanded a delay in the hearings, "so that the Senate and the Administration could concentrate" on the Gulf Coast recovery in the aftermath of Katrina. When has Kennedy ever concerned himself with anyone who is drowning or stranded in the water! Other Democrats have mentioned delaying the hearings along with Kennedy. The Supreme Court will begin its new term on October 1 and any delay will keep the court leaning to the left. The government does have the capability of performing both the hurricane recovery and confirmation hearings at the same time and incidentally I don't see Kennedy or any of his cohorts physically helping in the clean up efforts preventing them from their duties in Washington! The President's nomination of Roberts as chief is going to make this confirmation process one of the if not THE most interesting in the history of the nation!

A truly remarkable man and one of the great Americans of history has passed away from throat cancer at the age of 80. Chief Justice Rehnquist served nearly 33 years on the high court, one of the longest terms in United States history. Click on this title to read a biography of this amazing American!

President Bush - "It's a tremendous loss for our Nation"


The Neo Con Blogger is an interesting conservative site that tackles the issues. Check out the article demanding Wolf Blitzer, the mono tone dull lib from CNN to apologize for playing the race card about the Katrina disaster! Good reading!

Chief Justice Thomas?

With the Death of William Rehnquist last night, we are about to see yet another fight on Capitol Hill. Ill bet the finest swimmer in the Senate's (Kennedy) history already has his Bork playbook, and is reviewing his notes. He is doing this no less for Roberts, but should another white judge come before him, he will be ready to imply that they are racist. The talking heads are already throwing Alberto Gonzales around. But that seems to be a hot potato at the moment, so I don't think that will happen. I believe that another unknown will emerge in the following weeks, followed by ads funded by NARAL and Move On. It is almost to easy to predict what the left will do. I gets boring at times. Well, to my point.
Clarence seems to be the clear choice for chief Justice. Why, you may ask? Even though Mr. Scalia may be more qualified, in my opinion, Thomas is the perfect political play. He is black, he is conservative, and this would give the Democrats the opportunity to insult an African American once again for the world to see. I think we will see an announcement on this in coming weeks. Followed by the insults, the slurs, the Jim crow America, blah blah blah. Like I said, these lefties are lulling me to sleep.

Shocking---Buses that could have been used by Louisiana officials to save people---

Email I recieved---Lewinski and Kaczynski poems for The Washington Post Style section

Third place:

There once was a gal named Lewinski
Who played on a flute like Stravinsky
Twas Hail to the Chief
On this flute made of beef
That stole the front page from Kaczynski.

Second place:

Said Clinton to young Ms. Lewinsky,
We don't want to leave clues like Kaczynski,
Since you made such a mess,
Use the hem of your dress
And please wipe that stuff off of your chinsky.

And the winning entry:

Lewinsky and Clinton have shown
What Kaczynski must surely have known
That an intern is better
Than a bomb in a letter
When deciding how best to be blown.

The truth about racism-------

Rapper Kanye West pulled the race card last night at a fundraiser for Katrina victims. AT the end of his rant he said, "Bush doesn't care about black people." No I have a response for him. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton don't care about white people. And they hate Jews. Now I am sure most lefties would say this is absurd. But try something for me. Has any white person ever walked into a Black night club. I have. I almost didn't walk out. The real racist in our society in the last 30 years have been blacks if anyone. And their racist behavior is hidden behind the wrongs of the past in order to excuse it. Here in the south, I know, and have met many racist people. And George Bush is not one of them. Now Robert Bird, that's another story. This guy gets away with anything he wants because he is a Democrat. But no one ever ask about his days as a former Klan-Leader in West Virginia.
In the last days, we have seen many looters on our Television screen. A lot of them have been getting food for thier families. I would have done the same thing. On the other hand, I wouldn't be in a city that below sea level with a Cat. 4 hurricane heading my way. No matter WHAT I had to do to get away from there.
So I have a good one for you jew hating race baiters out there. IM including you in on this Kanye. Bush accessed the V-Chip in every Blacks head in Louisiana, and made sure that they wouldn't leave during the storm.

P.S. How come CNN hasn't picked up on the fact that they let all the prisoners out when the flood waters came in. Everyone knows it but them. Oh, that might make a Democrat look bad.

Liberal talk show host Randi Rhodes is not only encouraging the residents of New Orleans to loot but actually giving them advice as to where to loot. Her advise? Avoid stores like Walmart and concentrate instead on higher end stores so that the stolen goods are of better quality! This is liberal justice. It's OK to steal as long as you steal the more expensive items. I guess this is her idea of the modern day Robin Hood, the poor stealing from the rich and giving to themselves! Get real Randi Rhodes. If this was a joke, it was in poor taste just like the skit that you aired about assassinating the President. If you meant this sick idea then you need to have your head examined. This not only will NOT help the people devastated in New Orleans but will add to the lawlessness that is preventing much of the rescue and recovery efforts. As always the libs have the wrong answer to everything!

I have listened for the last several days to the blame and criticism that the media and the left have tried to place on the President concerning Hurricane Katrina and the aftermath. Today when New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin went on television and with great vulgarity ripped the President for the, "slow" response to this terrible disaster, I felt it was time to put things in perspective and see where some of the blame falls. I can look at this situation from the voice of experience having lived through eight hurricanes and served disaster relief with The Salvation Army in more than a dozen more storms. I have seen first hand the emergency response and the route that ALL response takes according to contingency plans that are in place long before any storm is even formed. There has been much criticism for the federal response with the necessities of life, food, water and clothing. The wheels of the federal government are slow because of the many levels that any response has to travel through. That response NEVER arrives until the fourth or fifth day after the storm has passed. The amount of the response and the evaluation of the numbers of personnel take at least 48 hours then mobilization and finally travel to the stricken area. First response in emergencies such as Katrina is dependent on The Salvation Army, the Red Cross and other private relief organization who bare the responsibility throughout the recovery of feeding and housing all survivors. This includes all of the basic necessities as well as feeding relief workers. None of the private participation is allowed into the stricken area until all the disaster event is through. In New Orleans the disaster actually began AFTER Katrina had passed and continued for several days therefore first responders were not allowed into the area! For the government to take over this responsibility required a reworking of the existing plans and then getting the flow of necessities into National Guard hands for delivery. The chain of response needs to be considered also for it is not automatic. After a Presidential emergency proclamation, ( which Bush proclaimed two days before landfall ), the local community takes first responsibility then requests state assistance who then in turn requests federal. The National Guard is ordered by the Governor of the state who then has to request mobilization from neighboring states if needed. The President would have to federalize the Guard to order them in which is usually done ONLY in case of war! Why then the anarchy that took place in New Orleans. Well much of that blame rests in the Mayors hand for releasing ALL city and county inmates when the waters began to rise, who then looted weapons and then anything else they could find. More than 20% of the New Orleans police force, first line of order in a disaster, turned in their badges at that time. Imagine what your community would be like if all of the jails were emptied at once! Then the second fault lies with the Governor of Louisiana, Kathleen Blanco. She waited until Tuesday to mobilize the Louisiana National Guard. This in itself takes several days because the Guard has to arrive at the mobilization point then load up and deploy. None of this problem is caused by the President or any portion of the federal government. This is the largest and an unprecedented disaster and instead of playing the blame game it's time to unite, stop politicizing this and help those in need and begin the slow process of rebuilding lives, rebuilding New Orleans and the coastal areas of Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana. Blame accomplishes nothing. Action accomplishes everything and action is taking place in the largest and most comprehensive response in our nations history. The survivors and all local state and federal officials undertaking this massive recovery deserve our help and support!

Which Presidents Took the Longest Vacations?

Jesse Jackson Jr. today claimed that President Bush was coming of a record long vacation. Once again, a Democrat is either dumb, or just lying.

For example, look at James Madison. By the end of his term in office, the War of 1812 was over and he was tired of serving the country and eager to get away from it all. So he packed his bags and slipped out of Washington in June of 1816 and didn’t return until October, and didn’t do a lick of presidential work the whole time he was gone—a four-month vacation that earns him top honors for having taken the longest vacation of any president. Second prize goes to John Adams, a founding father who is believed to have made greater sacrifices on behalf of the revolution than most of his contemporaries. In David McCullough’s biography of Adams, the author notes that Thomas Jefferson skipped town and went home during a particularly critical moment for the Continental Congress while Adams remained to fight the good fight. His wife Abigail put up with long absences for most of the revolution. But in the summer of 1798, Abigail fell ill and Adams raced home to be with her, right at the height of our undeclared war with France. He stayed at home in Massachusetts with his wife for seven months, while his enemies scoffed and joked that perhaps he had abdicated. It wasn’t a vacation, per se, but no other president in history stayed away from the capital as long as Adams. Adams is closely followed by his third-place rival, Thomas Jefferson, who never liked to be away from Monticello if he could help it, president or not. In 1805 he decided that he had had enough of being away from home, so he left the capital in mid-July and did not return until October. Jefferson had practiced well for this long vacation, because as vice president, in 1799, he had remained away from the capitol for ten months.

Wal-Mart Commits Additional $15 Million to Katrina Relief

Thursday, September 01, 2005


The left has spent the last several days blaming Global Warming, "man's destruction of the environment," (like that's possible!) for Katrina. But ultimately the left has blamed the President for the horrible suffering and devastation in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. As preposterous as this liberal blame game is and as angry as this verbal and written attack makes us, facts are facts and the liberals have NEVER been known to base anything on facts. Below is one of the best descriptions that I have found to counter the left with facts and directly from one who has lived in the devastated area. Recommended reading!

Katrina and Disgusting Exploitation
James K. Glassman
August 31, 2005

A profound tragedy is unfolding in New Orleans, the most beautiful city in America, with the richest cultural history and the most wonderful style of living. I lived in New Orleans for seven years. I was married there. My children were born there. I have many friends there.

My daughter, her husband and their little baby managed to get out of the city ahead of the flood on Sunday, driving 14 hours into Texas with the few belongings they could stuff into their car. They have no idea what has become of their house and their possessions, not to mention their friends, their pets, their jobs, their way of life.

Tragedies happen, and my daughter and her family are happy just to be alive. Their losses and those of hundreds of thousands of other innocents deserve mourning, prayer and respect.

That is why the response of environmental extremists fills me with what only can be called disgust. They have decided to exploit the death and devastation to win support for the failed Kyoto Protocol, which requires massive cutbacks in energy use to reduce, by a few tenths of a degree, surface warming projected 100 years from now.

Katrina has nothing to do with global warming. Nothing. It has everything to do with the immense forces of nature that have been unleashed many, many times before and the inability of humans, even the most brilliant engineers, to tame these forces.

Giant hurricanes are rare, but they are not new. And they are not increasing. To the contrary. Just go to the website of the National Hurricane Center and check out a table that lists hurricanes by category and decade. The peak for major hurricanes (categories 3,4,5) came in the decades of the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s, when such storms averaged 9 per year. In the 1960s, there were 6 such storms; in the 1970s, 4; in the 1980s, 5; in the 1990s, 5; and for 2001-04, there were 3. Category 4 and 5 storms were also more prevalent in the past than they are now. As for Category 5 storms, there have been only three since the 1850s: in the decades of the 1930s, 1960s and 1990s.

But that doesn't stop an enviro-predator like Robert F. Kennedy Jr. from writing on the Huffingtonpost website: "Now we are all learning what it's like to reap the whirlwind of fossil fuel dependence which Barbour and his cronies have encouraged. Our destructive addiction has given us a catastrophic war in the Middle East and - now -- Katrina is giving our nation a glimpse of the climate chaos we are bequeathing our children."

Or consider Jurgen Tritten, Germany's environmental minister, in an op-ed in the Frankfurter Rundschau. He wrote (according to a translation prepared for me): "By neglecting environmental protection, America's president shuts his eyes to the economic and human damage that natural catastrophes like Katrina inflect on his country and the world's economy."

The bright side of Katrina, concludes Tritten, is that it will force President Bush to face facts. "When reason finally pays a visit to climate-polluter headquarters, the international community has to be prepared to hand America a worked-out proposal for the future of international climate protection."

He goes on, "There is only one possible route of action. Greenhouse gases have to be radically reduced, and it has to happen worldwide." In other words, thanks to Katrina, we'll finally get Kyoto enforced. (He might start at home, by the way. Europe is not anywhere close to reducing CO2 to Kyoto standards. In fact, the U.S. is doing much better than many Kyoto ratifiers.)

Ross Gelbspan, in a particularly egregious, almost giddy piece in the Boston Globe that was reprinted in the International Herald Tribune, wrote that the hurricane was "nicknamed Katrina by the National Weather Service Katrina, [but] its real name was global warming." He also finds global warming responsible for droughts in the Midwest, strong winds in Scandinavia and heavy rain in Dubai. The reason for all this devastation, of course, is that the Bush Administration is controlled by coal and oil interests.

And the Independent, a widely read British newspaper, reported today that "Sir David King, the British Government's chief scientific adviser, has warned that global warming may be responsible for the devastation reaped by Hurricane Katrina." King contended that "the increased intensity of hurricanes is associated with global warming."

The Kyoto advocates point to warmer ocean temperatures, but they ought to read their own favorite newspaper, The New York Times, which reported yesterday:

"Because hurricanes form over warm ocean water, it is easy to assume that the recent rise in their number and ferocity is because of global warming. But that is not the case, scientists say. Instead, the severity of hurricane seasons changes with cycles of temperatures of several decades in the Atlantic Ocean. The recent onslaught 'is very much natural,' said William M. Gray, a professor of atmospheric science at Colorado State University who issues forecasts for the hurricane season.'"

An article on TCS quoted Gray last year as saying that, while some groups and individuals say that hurricane activity lately "may be in some way related to the effects of increased man-made greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide,Â?there is no reasonable scientific way that such an interpretationÂ?can be made."

Indeed, there is no evidence that hurricanes are intensifying anyway. For the North Atlantic as a whole, according to the United Nations Environment Programme of the World Meteorological Organization: "Reliable dataÂ?since the 1940s indicate that the peak strength of the strongest hurricanes has not changed, and the mean maximum intensity of all hurricanes has decreased."

Yes, decreased.

Not only has the intensity of hurricanes fallen, but, as George H. Taylor, the state climatologist of Oregon has pointed out, so has the frequency of hailstorms in the U.S. (see Changnon and Changnon) and cyclones throughout the world (Gulev, et al.).

But environmental extremists do not want to be bothered with the facts. Nor do they wish to mourn the destruction and death wreaked on a glorious city. To their everlasting shame, they would rather distort and exploit.

"How Gas Prices Work"

I found something interesting on the internet today. Gas Price information. Right now gas prices are up to $3.21 for regular unleaded. Did you no, that if we eliminated the taxes on one gallon of gas that price could be around $2.25. In times like these, I think it is time for the state and federal government to do what is right for it's citizens. But will they?
