Iran's President wrote a letter to all Americans

In his open letter to America on November 29th Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad urges the American people to demand the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq and reject what he called the U.S. government's "blind support" for Israel and its "illegal and immoral" actions in fighting terrorism. Jihad Watch so eloquently put it:

"The Thug-in-Chief devotes most of his letter to trying to convince us that, hey, we're not all that different, a theme also present in his letter to Germany's Angela Merkel.

But note the ending, which contains the familiar call for conversion (required prior to waging war in Islamic law, per Sahih Muslim 019.4294), plus a slap at Christianity in "any partners they ascribe to him": "But those who repent, have faith and do good may receive Salvation. Your Lord, alone, creates and chooses as He will, and others have no part in His choice; Glorified is God and Exalted above any partners they ascribe to Him" (28:67-68)." Source: Jihad Watch

Bacon, Anyone?

The Democrats promised during the pre-election era that they would return the USA to fiscal responsibility.

The Republicans seem to have learned the wrong message sent by the voters, once again, when it comes to fiscal responsibility. Who is right?

To be fair, the Democrats have not yet regained the keys to the American purse. This will occur in January 2007.

Are the Republicans trying to get what they can before they become the minority, or is it a free-for-all (except the taxpayers, of course)? You decide.

View this list of pork projects for the FY 2007.

There are more details about this article that may be found at The Heritage Foundation.

Originally written for America's Victory '08.

The Real Solution to the Middle East

There have been several attempts to persuade Israel to ‘make peace’ with her neighbors, while the rest of the Middle East is about to go nuclear. This is the wrong approach.

In the ME, they do not respect peace. Not yet, anyway. If one is to plan to ‘help’ a foreign region, they should at least understand said region.

Most dictators (and a majority of the people of the ME) have lived for a very long period of time under the rule of strength over sense. Common or otherwise. Americans cannot imagine this, even though it was indeed a part of our own history.

America needs to stop all dialogue with Iran and Syria. We need to send a strong message to all nations in the region that any of its citizens caught hurting or murdering an Iraqi or American can expect to be brought into the war.

First, bomb that dictator’s home, then bomb the places of known terrorists (which we should be doing anyway). Until they surrender, we do not stop. Total victory should be our only goal, and untie the hands of our Military.

This is a real war, no matter what Pelosi may think. We must fight to win. If not, do not send our men and women to die for your half-measures.

Most countries will not take this seriously because up until now, we have done nothing when they cross the line. This has to stop. The first country that dares to cross that line, the line does not move. It is not flexible. The bombs start flying.

Congress has to understand that it is their responsible to declare war against countries who openly attacks the USA. This would make Congress just as responsible for any decisions made today AND tomorrow.

There have been enough discussions, diplomacy, study groups and going to that wasteland of dictators known as the UN. (That is a different issue, but one to be brought up at a later date.)

Either you are with us or against us. The line was drawn on September 20, 2001, and it has been moved in the name of cooperation. It needs to be put back in its rightful place.

We are obligated to only the USA. Someone should read the Constitution again. Does it say, “Congress is responsible for giving everyone social programs” or does it say, “Congress is responsible for the common national defense of this country”? (…general Welfare does not include a welfare state. If it did, there would have been one.)

Stop talking about it. Decide. Do it. There is nothing left to say to people who laugh at you everytime you try to ‘make peace’ with them. They would much rather kill you. Much worse, they would much rather kill me. So do your correct job now.

Originally written for America's Victory '08.

They're Pushing Back

Many conservatives are fed up with being taken for granted, told that we are racists-heartless-greedy-mean-etc, even by the people they have elected. Enough is enough, as the old saying goes. They have left.

They have decided to start their own grassroots effort to bring bright, articulate, talented, conservatives who can go toe-to-toe with the best of the Democrats. Even still, with the best of the Republican’s in name only (RINO’s).

They are a strong majority and challenge any public official to try to get elected without their support. They have principles and are tired of being thrown overboard for the good of the party. Answer one question. How does this make them better?

If the candidates do not have a coherent message that is pursuasive, then they deserve to lose. Now it is the conservatives turn.

In 2008, the conservatives shall be prepared. If you are a conservative and would care to join, please contact Big Dog at America’s Victory ‘08 to find out what and how you can contribute and work together with real conservatives for a successful America. Thank you.

How to Avoid Getting Grinched


Online Shopping GraphicHappy "Cyber Monday!"
We hear the Monday after Thanksgiving is now one of the busiest days—if not the busiest day—of the year for online shopping. That's why some retailers are calling it "Cyber Monday" or even "Black Monday."

And that’s why we’d like to start your online shopping off right with some words to the wise.

Here's our specific advice for shopping safely on the Internet:

  • Do your homework on the web retailer. Make sure you're buying items from a reputable and legitimate company. Don't judge the business by its website. Make sure the site has a physical address and a working phone number. Check consumer websites for information about the company.

  • When using your credit card for purchases, make sure the website is secure. Look for the tiny padlock icon that symbolizes (but doesn’t necessarily guarantee) a higher level of security. Also, check out the site’s security or encryption software.
  • Be very cautious when responding to special offers (especially those that come via unsolicited e-mail) and when dealing with companies or persons outside the country.
  • If you’re participating in an Internet auction, read the fine print. Before you bid, learn as much as you can about how the auction works, what your responsibilities are as a buyer, what the seller’s obligations are, and what actions the website takes if a problem occurs. Learn as much as you can about the seller. And don’t give out your social security number or driver’s license number to the seller.

Also, make sure your computer has a firewall and the latest anti-virus software. And we can’t repeat this enough: don’t open unknown e-mail attachments, including those contained in recent messages that appear to come from the FBI.

What should you do if you think you've been scammed? Go online and file a complaint with the Internet Crime Complaint Center run by the FBI and the National White Collar Crime Center. You can also file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission and contact your local police. We also recommend that you file a complaint with the retailer.

Maine Teens Apprehend for Wal-Mart Bombing

Courtesy of one of the Hannity Forum members who brought the late breaking information to my attention.

Seems like the police in Skowhegan, Maine, had a break in the case. CBS Channel 4 News, Boston, reported that two teenage boys were arrested late Saturday night and charged with setting off 2 acid bombs at the local Wal-Mart. (2 Acid Bombs Detonated at Wal-Mart)

Because this story is an Associated Press (AP) news feed, you should go to CBS Channel 4 News Boston to read the AP copyrighted story.

The media reported that apparently the teens parents recognized their kids form a news story and contacted the Skowhegan Police Department.

This may bring a whole new topic of conversation to the table. Should the parents have gone to the police? Do we have any control over our children? What on earth would possess to teens to do such a thing? Is it a problem created by a liberal society? Should this be handled as a Juvenile Detention Issue? Should this be called Domestic Terrorism? It this, "Boys will be Boys?"

Apparently the teens had placed other bombs around town. The details are still sketchy and more will be forth coming. It will be interesting when more information becomes available.

I wonder if taking parental authority away from parents, as activists and left leaning courts have done for the past 10 - 15 years could be helping to cause this phenomena that is striking down our children?

2 acid bombs go off in Maine Wal-Mart

Courtesy of National Terror Alert Response Center: 2 Acid Bombs Set Off In Wal-Mart

The explosion of two homemade bombs inside Wal-Mart Saturday afternoon sent a store full of holiday shoppers scurrying for the exits.

Two acid bombs detonated in two separate aisles as the store was crowded with shoppers around 3:15 p.m. on Saturday, said Sgt. Joel Davis, fire investigation supervisor for the State Fire Marshal’s Office. One of the bombs detonated in the pet area. The second was in the store’s toy section, Davis said.

Early reports indicate that three or four people suffered minor injuries, mostly limited to ringing ears caused by the blasts, but last night investigators could still not rule out that someone may have suffered more serious injuries that had not yet been reported.

The store was evacuated following the explosions and by 6:30 p.m. employees who had been waiting in the parking lot were told to go home for the evening.

The store is expected to reopen today, said Dale Brann, store manager.

Two individual have been identified from the stores security cameras, one of whom is seen talking to the store’s greeter, as persons of interest. Davis stopped short of describing the young men in the video as subjects, but the video suggests they might at least have seen something relevant to the investigation.

“We’d at least like to talk to them,” he said.

An acid bomb is most frequently made with household products that are poured into a plastic container, Davis said. The chemicals react to form an acidic substance while simultaneously expanding, causing the plastic to expand to the point of explosion. The formula can be downloaded from the Internet, Davis said, but the ease with which the bombs are built belie their danger. A similar bomb in another part of the state seriously injured a police officer, Davis said. Saturday’s explosion was less destructive.

“It could have been a lot worse,” Davis said. “They’re simple but very dangerous.”

The devices did not appear to be attached to timing devices, Davis said, and there were no notes or messages associated with the bombs.

Fire, police and ambulance crews from Skowhegan were the first to arrive on scene, Davis said. Davis was joined by five other investigators from the fire marshal’s office, in addition to a team from the State Police Bomb Squad. Teams checked the air quality to ensure no dangerous substances had been released into the atmosphere, Davis said. Investigators then conducted an aisle-by-aisle search for other devices and collected evidence.

Investigators and other emergency workers remained at the scene until after 9:30 p.m.

Brann described a chaotic scene with people screaming when the bombs first exploded.

“I was extremely pleased nobody was injured,” he said. “I think everyone in the community did an amazing job.” Source -Kennebec Journal

Bosun's comments: We may have to eventually prepare ourselves for what happens in Israel on almost a daily basis. Although this has not been tied to international terror groups and may have only been directed against Wal-mart, problems may be on the horizon. I am concerned because according to the news article, a similar bomb was detonated in another part of the state and injured a police officer. Folks we have to stand by for the inevitable.

I can only hope that the police solve this domestic terrorism act quickly. This could be a sick teenage prank, union retaliation, or maniac hatred against a store that has done so much for the America consumer. God Bless Wal-marts and the injured customers, and those who were affected by this maniac hatred that persons unknown have inflicted upon our society.

Explosive toys discovered in Nablus

Courtesy of Israel Today Y Headline News (Emailed to me from a friend.)

Doll Bomb From The Religion Of Peace. A raid conducted by Israel Defense Forces and the General Security Services in the West Bank city of Nablus Saturday morning revealed a laboratory used by terror groups to produce an array of explosives and bombs in various forms, including stuffed animals and bomb belts. Among the materials found inside the lab, the forces found stuffed dolls with wires attached to them, apparently ready to be used to hide a bomb, 40 liters of hydrogen peroxide used for explosives, a hollow jacket used to hide explosives, three empty belts intended to carry explosives as potential bomb belts similar to belts used in the past during suicide bombings.

The forces also found an empty gas tank, twenty light bulbs used to activate explosives, a gas mask, syringes, test tubes, pipes, and a box of talcum powder intended for the use of explosive devices and several other items used for the manufacturing of explosives. Other unidentified materials found in the lab were taken for examination by IDF and police examiners.

After the raid was completed, IDF sappers detonated the lab in a controlled manner without causing any injuries in the surrounding area.

An IDF Spokesman statement said that the IDF will continue to operate against terrorist infrastructure in the northern West Bank, and employ all means at its disposal in order to uphold the security of the citizens.

Bosun's Comment: This is another example that the left and liberals in the United States are misguided and the apologists and appeasers of the world community are also misguided.

They give the PA and Hamas a free pass for the homicide bomber maniacs of Gaza.

This is another despicable act by those who want to destroy Israel.

US Citizen Terror Suspect Flees US: Calls FBI to Say He is Gone

According the Seattle Post Intelligencer, a Seattle area Rainier Beach man, who federal agents allege made his barber shop a kind of "anti-American training ground for Muslims" where children were taught "how to shoot and fight the Americans", fled the United States for Somalia.

This man was released from federal custody on plea agreement pre-sentencing release. The man called federal authorities from Somalia to inform them he was not coming in for sentencing. I wish I could have heard how that conversation really went.

Perhaps it went like this

him - "hi, so i decided that i'm just not going to come in to face those terrorism charges"
officer - "...i'm sorry, what?"
him - "yeh. i'm in
officer - "...are you serious?"
him - "yeh. but its ok, because i called." (from a Hannity Forum Member)
him : "by the way, tell the judge, 'thanks for my freedom'."

The judge who released the man ordered that he surrender his United States passport after his release. But, of course the man did not comply with the judge's order and fled. "Alleged" Islamos don't give a damn about American laws.

Folks, we are loosing our grip on freedom from terrorism because of liberal politically correct blunders like this. Michael Savage is correct when he says that we are going to be destroyed from within by liberal wackoism.

After the fact, the U.S. Attorney's Office is apparently going to review the practice of allowing people out of custody before they surrender their passport.

The Dumbass Award goes to the US Attorneys, federal courts, and everyone else involved in this travesty of justice.

Write your congressmen and senators about this folks. Don't let this story get buried on page 26 or the mainstream media. This traitor to our country will join other American-Born Al Qaeda Members, such as, another federal fugitive, Adam Gadahn, who aspires to terrorize America and install an Islamic Caliphate from sea to shining sea.

2 Cups of Coffee

Forwarded to me from a good blogger friend, Jerry W.

When things in your lives seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and the 2 cups of coffee.

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.  The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was. The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous "yes." The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed.

"Now," said the professor as the laughter subsided, "I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things--your family, your children, your health, your friends and

Your favorite passions---and if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house and your car. The sand is everything else---the small stuff."

"If you put the sand into the jar first," he continued, "there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all

Your time and energy on the small stuff you will never have room for the things that are important to you. "Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your spouse out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal. Take care of the golf balls first---the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand."

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented. The professor smiled. "I'm glad you asked. It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there's always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend."

Please share this with someone you care about. I JUST DID

Jerry, Thank you for sharing that story with me.  To the readership, I have a good day.

Lebanon's Minister Pierre Gemayel's Assassinated

Minister of Industry Pierre Gemayel was assassinated today. Witnesses say that a car slammed into the back of his car where the assassin got out of the second car and shot him to death at point blank range.

Gemayel was the youngest legislator who was voted into power in 2005 after the Syrians were forced to leave the territory, and Lebanon was given their freedom. Gemayel was one of the majority of people that were anti-Syrian.

He has a rich political history. His father was the former President Amin Gemayel between 1982 and 1988, and his grandfather was "the late Pierre Gemayel, led the right-wing Christian Kataeb Party that fielded the largest Christian militia during the 1975-90 civil war between Christians and Muslims."
Gemayel is the fifth figure to be assassinated in the past two years in Lebanon. Former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri was killed in a massive car bombing in February 2005. The journalist and activist Samir Kassir and former Communist Party leader George Hawi were killed in separate car bombings in June last year in addition to lawmaker and newspaper manager Gibran Tueni was killed in a car bombing in December.

Saad Hariri, leader of the anti-Syrian parliamentary majority, broke off a televised news conference after hearing that Gemayel had been shot. In an interview with CNN later, Hariri hailed Gemayel as "a friend, a brother to all of us" and appeared to break down after saying: "we will bring justice to all those who killed him."
This is breaking news at The Daily Star in Lebanon. There are suspisions that Hizbollah was behind this assassination. There are tension at this time, because "Hezbollah has threatened to topple the government if it does not get a bigger say in Cabinet decision making."

Keep your ears and eyes opened to this. Has anyone noticed we have never received the report of who assassinated PM Hariri yet? Hmm...

If this link is no longer available, try this one.

Update: If you feel so inclined to express your condolences, you may call, email or fax the Lebanon Embassy. Here are some numbers and addresses you may use:
    Embassy Directory.
    Embassy of Lebanon
    2560 28th Street, NW

America's Victory '08: 11/20/2006

Today is the first day that America's Victory '08 will be available for your readership. This is a collection of serious conservatives who refuse to support candidates who do not fulfill the conservative agenda at least 80% of the time.

For the most part these candidates were elected due to these people who worked very diligently to 'get out the vote,' stuff envelopes, place phone calls, call radio talk shows, and all of this was done without pay. These people are believers in their principles, and they do what they believe is the right thing to do.

What is that old saying, "Put your money where your mouth is"? They did. The elected officials did not listen to them in order to garner new votes. Okay. These elected officials spent money at a greater pace than Democrats! The party of limited government, strong national defense, constitutionalist judges and balanced budgets apparently has lost it's way.

Is it somewhere out in the wilderness? Only they can speak for themselves. Their actions are speaking very well for them to be judged as out of touch with their base. These up and coming conservatives are not about to wait around for failure. They are planning to take back the House of Representatives, the Senate and the White House in 2008.

Please visit this new site. It is going to be rather interesting for the next two years. I may not be able to write all the news you will need, but they have several contributors from whom you may choose to read. Please leave nice comments and if you find you cannot say something nice, at least be polite. Thank you.

Am I the Only One?

It appears that many talk show hosts were very busy carrying the water for politicians for whom many people are tired of their lack of new and fresh ideas. Some people are tuning out, while others are tuning in to vent their frustrations. No one else listens anymore.

Many people are Democrats, many people are Republicans. Some people are Liberals while some are Conservatives. There is something special, however, about we the people. The very best thing about us is the fact that all of us are Americans. I am proud to stand by this label.

Read the whole article.

Operation: Love from Home-Update

Need everyone's help getting the word out about this! We currently have a total of 3,259 holiday cards for troops so far, and have until 11/30 to collect as many as we can.

After chatting with a Major buddy of mine in Afghanistan a few minutes ago, I'm upping the goal to 5,000 or more cards. IF I can get a total of 5,000 cards, I'll have enough so that EVERY AMERICAN SOLDIER (2,500, more or less) at this one particular base will get at least one Christmas card. I also have a newly-adopted Marine in a very bad, harsh area with not much by way of "comfort/luxury" items... in addition to the HELL they are living through on a moment-by-moment basis... I'd like to have enough so I can send his platoon extra, as well.

Anything y'all can do to help get the word out about this would be GREATLY appreciated!! For convenience's sake, I've copied the info about "Operation: Love From Home" below.

During this holiday season, let's show our troops we love and support them!!!! From September 30 to November 30, I will be collecting holiday cards for troops stationed in high-combat areas in Iraq and Afghanistan. Being away from home and living in harsh conditions during the holiday season is especially difficult ~ they need to know we have not forgotten them!!! Mail from home helps to keep our troops' morale strong, making a very real difference in their lives.

Send your signed, unsealed holiday cards to:

    Mrs. Kathy Orr
    Operation: Love From Home
    P.O. Box 1660
    Loganville, GA 30052
The cards can be handmade or store-bought... for that matter, they don't even have to be cards; a hand-written or typed letter is just as wonderful! This is a great opportunity to get your Scout troop, school, church and other civic organizations involved in doing something to show support for our troops.

If you wish to send an email greeting (which will be printed off and mailed along with the holiday cards), please send an email to:

**IMPORTANT GUIDELINES: This is not a "dating service" of any type. Please do not send suggestive or otherwise inappropriate cards or materials. Please also refrain from making political statements of any nature. I will be reading and screening every card received to ensure that the above guidelines are adhered to. Remember: This is strictly to let the troops know that we love them, we are proud of them and that we HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN them! If you have any questions, please contact me at

This is an ongoing Christmas gift of love for our men and women being done by Kathy. She is a very special lady, and we have a lot of remarkably special young men and women protecting our country. Let's help in any way we can. You don't have a card? Send money! However the card would be more special. It would show you took the time give thanks.

Thank you to everyone who participates. God bless you.

Coulter's Latest Commentary Rips Media over Pelosi Fawning

In Ann Coulter's latest column, that was posted at WorldNetDaily, the take-no-prisoners commentator rips into the media for their ceaseless gushing over Rep. Nancy Pelosi becoming the first-ever woman speaker of the House.  Coulter correctly points out that President Bush has been appointing women and minorities to high posts for years.  But then again, the Dems have been shaky with accepting the truth.

Writes Coulter: "The media yawned when Condoleezza Rice became the first black woman secretary of state (and when Lincoln Chaffee became the first developmentally disabled senator)."

On the Bush Cabinet, Coulter humorfully points out, "The whole place has been lousy with women since the first Bush term, including Gale Ann Norton, secretary of the interior, Ann Veneman, secretary of agriculture, and Margaret Spellings, secretary of education. For a while there, it looked as if Bush might become the first president whose entire Cabinet's menstrual cycles were synchronized."

The no policy platform democrats are successfully bringing back a cut-and-run national security strategy, tax-and-spend domestic policy and a no-enforcement immigration policy, and is in their minds apparently ushering in a return to feminist milestones.

Gaze Extremism Flourishing

[Gaza] Following continual rocket attacks by Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip, the Israeli army launched a seven-day military operation.   

If the Palestinian government does not want Israel to launch defensive intrusions into Palestinian territories, it should prevent the launching of rockets into Israel.  The world community goes out of its way to give Hamas, Hezbollah, and other extremist organizations a pass for bad behavior and stacks condemnation on Israel.   For the rest of the story, Click Here

Abizaid, New Dem Leader Clash on Iraq Timetable

Note from the Bosun: Folks, the Dems just do not get it.  I doubt that they (Pelosi, Murtha, Reid, et al) are capable of seeing the big picture on Global Terrorism and Islamic Jihad.  Now, General Abizaid weighs in. 

The top U.S. commander for Mideast testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee and indicated that he is optimistic that U.S. forces can stabilize Iraq. 

General Abizaid's testimony  has put him in contradiction to the newly-empowered Democratic leadership.  Senator Carl Levin (and his apologist and appeasing cronies in the most liberal party) appears to be predispositioned and has his mind made up when he (Levin) commented that he thinks U.S. troops need to start pulling out of Iraq.  Link Here

Ahmadinejad: Israel will cease to exist

(Courtesy of Drudge Report)

Netanyahu: Ahmadinejad is preparing another Holocaust...

"It's 1938 and Iran is Germany. And Iran is racing to arm itself with atomic bombs," Netanyahu told delegates to the annual United Jewish Communities General Assembly, repeating the line several times, like a chorus, during his address. "Believe him and stop him," the opposition leader said of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. "This is what we must do. Everything else pales before this."

While the Iranian president "denies the Holocaust," Netanyahu said, "he is preparing another Holocaust for the Jewish state."


The  first cracks in the united front over Iraq between Tony Blair and President Bush appeared last night as the Prime Minister offered Iran and Syria the prospect of dialogue over the future of Iraq and the Middle East.


Senior (American) Democrats have begun talking openly about the prospect of bringing troops home within six months, while others have urged the president to negotiate a diplomatic solution with Iraq’s neighbours.

We are in a world of shit, Folks.  It sure looks to me that the apologists and appeasers of the world will eventually sell out Israel.  What do I know, I'll let you decide for yourself.

At least 105 U.S. forces died in October, the fourth highest monthly toll of the war.

God bless our Veterans

I seem to remember an old saying. It went something like this: Praise the Lord, and pass the ammunition. How is it possible to have two diametrically (seemingly) opposing statements come together? Simple. We are at war.

I cannot express how much I admire and honor our men and women in the Military in words. So I will continue to pray for each and every one of you. I will also pray for your families, friends and other loved ones; that God will watch over them and keep them from harm and hardship.

You have done so much on my behalf, and I could not ask more of you. I thank you so very much. May God bless you and watch over you all the days of your lives.

The Republican Purge Continues as Dems Assume Leadership Role

Senators Poised to Kill Bolton U.N. Nomination


President Bush resubmits nomination, but Senate Democrats and key Republican say they will block confirmation.  For the rest of the story: Here

Message from Bos'un: It is not over by any means.  The sting will be felt in many ways in the coming months.  For people who did not vote or voted for the other guys because they hatred of our president, perhaps, they should watch out for what they wished for.  Ambassador Bolton was a fine man for the United Nations; About the only one who stood up for former American values.

The fat lady sang, its all over folks;  We now have a weak country, weak foreign policy, weak executive and legislative leadership, and a lame duck president.

Technorati tags: john Bolton, un, united nations, democrat purge, retaliation, pay back, donk Lefti

Those who politically inclined will understand that in most states the absentee ballots will not be counted for at least 10 days, if at all. There must be enough ballots to cover the diffeerence between the two candidates, or they just get thrown out. How does it feel to know you've been disenfranchised?

Regardless, Congratulations to everyone who won this election. Let us now hope that since the Democrats finally have some responsibility, they use it wisely for the sake of our country.

They still have not laid out any specific plans, except for raising minimun wages. This will cause people to lose jobs, but as long as it feels good, right?

In my opinion, it was not that the Democrats won. The Republicans lost due to open borders. I hope they weren't expecting any help from the Democrats on this issue. The border fence that passed this year is now not going to be funded, but hey? You conservatives got your revenge, right?

Let's just pray that North Korea and Iran and Syria and the terrorists (who know they are at war with us) do not get a pass. Democrats, you are now a wartime Congress. Please remember this.

Now if we could all just take a deep breath, settle down, become more civil and give the Democrats an opportunity to prove that they have the capacity to lead the Congress. If they cannot, there's always 2008.

So, now we move on

Perhaps the Republican Party will actually learn something from this loss, that while not a landslide, was still painful. When you lose to people who have absolutely nothing to say then you have a problem. That problem is that Republicans forgot why Americans sent them to Washington in the first place. We sent you there to be Conservative. If we wanted more spending, if we wanted ILLEGALS coming in unabated, if we wanted corruption, we would have kept Democrats in charge back in 1994. You failed to deliver conservatism and you failed to deliver a message that people could hold on to. And quite honestly, some of you deserved to lose.

The idea of Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House is vile, disgusting and repulsive. But the fact is, she will fill that slot unless the donks decide that someone else should do it. Republicans have no say in that matter and they need to be figuring out what latrine their offices will be in. This country will be weaker and more vulnerable not only because Democrats are in charge of it but because Republicans were negligent in their duties. As much as the Democrats will have responsibility for the disasters ahead, Republicans will share in that blame because they failed in their duties.

I don’t like the idea of Democrats in charge because I know what they will do. I know what kind of liberal twaddle Pelosi will bring and I know that right now the big winners are the Terrorists who endorsed the Democratic Party. I only hope that should they attack here again, the only people affected are the ones sitting in the Capitol. Innocent people should not pay for the stupidity that takes place in DC.

The idea of Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House is vile, disgusting and repulsive quote from Big Dog, November 8th, 2006

I don’t much like the idea that we lost but I have found a few bright spots in the loss. First of all, I am a Second Amendment believer so I will always be safe. It will be more important now than ever to be armed to prevent government tyranny and to protect our homeland from the people who will come here to do us harm. Second, now it is my turn to play the blame game. For a long time, no matter what happened Republicans were blamed because they were in charge. Now, I get to blame everything on the Democrats. They are in charge, their fault. I can now sit around like the idiots at Kos and write about every time Pelosi farts. I can point out every time they lie, cheat, or steal, and everything will be their fault. I think that is the best bright spot. One other thing that is good about this is that it might actually make Republicans aware of what they should really be standing for and what Conservatism is all about. They might just get their acts together to take back control, but if history is any indicator, it will be a long time.

One other thing that this might actually do is make George Bush govern. It is easy to be the leader when you party is in control but when there is opposition it gets tougher. Bush might actually have to dust off his veto pen and show he knows how to use it. There will be gridlock for at least the next two years but that might not be all bad. The Dems are in charge but not in a position to throw weight around. They have just enough power to really screw things up.

The real draw back is that his will make that idiot Howard Dean look like a genius.

Those of us on the right do not cry when we lose. We suck it up and move on. Unlike the left who crawl under their beds when they lose, Republicans know that we still have work to do and we will roll up our sleeves and get it done. It is a dark day for America but we have been through dark times before.

Congratulations to the Democratic Party and their supporters. You ran on absolutely no platform and won. Now you actually have to show you know what you are doing. I hope you are up for the challenge.

Is CNN Bias?

According to an article in World Net Daily, Nerchivan Barzani, the prime minister of Iraqi Kurdistan in a meeting with Gold Star Families visiting U.S. troops in the Middle east, discussed with the families how our news media coverage of Iraq is shameful. Barzani met with a delegation of Gold Star Families each of who lost a child in Operation Iraqi Freedom. It is disturbing to me that our America news media organizations have downplayed the historic visit. The Gold Star Families trip was sponsored by Move America Forward. It appears to me that if it isn't Cindy Sheehan and her radicalized friends spouting the left wing agenda, it is not news for our bias mainstream media.

Iraqi Leader: CNN International, Al-Jazeera 'Equally Bad'

by Matthew Sheffield, November 7, 2006

CNN International is in some prestigious company now:

A government leader in Iraq's Kurdistan region has told Gold Star Families visiting U.S. troops in the Middle East that the news media's coverage of the situation in Iraq is terribly biased.

"CNN International and Al Jazeera are equally bad in their coverage of the situation in Iraq," said Nerchivan Barzani, the prime minister of Iraqi Kurdistan.

"When I was in the United States recently and read the negative news in the Washington Post, New York Times and in the network TV broadcasts, I even wondered if things had gotten so bad since I had left that I shouldn't return," he said. read more

'Confederate Yankee' interviews MP's in Iraq

Bob of Confederate Yankee has shared with us his wonderful interview with SSG Oliver and SPC Kimberly MCGuiness. You will find this typed over at his site.

If you have a site, please help us to spread the word. Many of the Coalition people only hear when bombs go off, and this is by far a great distortion. It is a disservice to the men and women whom are fighting to keep all of us free. It upsets me greatly, so spread the news around by commenting wherever you go, letting others know about his site, e-mail your friends, etc. I would really appreciate it.

If you have any trouble, I did make a copy just in case. You will find that here, but ONLY if you can no longer reach his site. PLEASE! :)

Also, he has some other wonderful articles he has penned. You may want to check them out as well. Have a great day!

Soldiers in Iraq say, "Mistake to leave now"

Imagine that? Everything you have been spoonfed by the media, and it still hasn't worked. What are they going to have to do? Dress up in Democrat garb and come out of the closet to convince you that it was a mistake to go into Iraq?

Maybe this Washington Post article will explain why the Soldiers know that you who believe that leaving Iraq right now are wrong. Don't listen to me. Listen to them. I do believe they have earned the decency of at least that.

Media Lied, Heroes Died


It has often been believed that you never encourage your enemies. You do not let them know what you know about them, you just don't talk about OUR country's secrets.

It appears as though this is no longer the ethos of modern day media who are against the GWOT. There is a magnificent article in the Wall Street Journal (online) today that tackles these issues, one by one. It is rather lengthy, so get a cup of whatever, cuddle up, and read it.

I have been so disappointed in the dinosaur media for such a long time now that I cannot even write an adequate summary or article on my own. I'm just too disgusted.

One thing I will add, however. Because of the media's hatred for the Military and our president, they have allowed these lies to invalidate their papers. Never do they apologize. I am still waiting for the apology about the non-existent Kor'ans that were never flushed down any toilets. And that's only one lie.

Do you know how many died because of that lie? I want to say over one thousand, but I do not have the data to back that statement. Therefore I will not claim it as a fact. Unlike the NY Times...

When the media lies about our Military, it shows up on al-Jazeera. We are not the only ones who suffer losses by emboldening the enemy to strike again but hey? It doesn't matter to them as long as they get their little plastic trophies. They forget we are not the only ones there.

Thank you, Coalition, for your bravery, your help, your expertise, your shared responsibiliy, and your sacrifices. God bless them and you all. Have a great day.

PS. Since you in the media are still living the Viet Nam war era, I have a recommendation for you. Why don't you pack up everything and move there?

Arabian Gulf: Iran Missiles Will Cover Gulf and Strait of Hormuz

Courtesy of Russian News and Information Agency Novosti

TEHRAN, November 3 (RIA Novosti) - Iran has test-launched three new models of anti-ship missiles during an exercise in the Persian Gulf, Iranian television reported Friday.

"The range of these missiles covers the Persian Gulf, the Sea of Oman and all the Strait of Hormuz," a senior Revolutionary Guards official said on television.

The anti-ship C-802 Noor, TL-10 Kowsar, and TL-6 Nasr missiles have an approximate range of 120 kilometers (75 miles) to 170 kilometers (106 miles).

Iran has already successfully launched several dozen long-range missiles during large-scale military exercises, codenamed Great Prophet, which are taking place November 2-12 in southern Iran, and involve ground units, the Air Force, Navy and Basij (militia) forces.

Iranian television said the first day of the exercises was notable for the successful launch of Shahab-2 and Shahab-3 long-range ballistic missiles, as well as of Scud-B, Fateh-110 and other missiles. It added that Iranian specialists had designed all of the missiles.

On Wednesday, Commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps General Yahya Rahim-Safavi said the main aim of the maneuvers was to demonstrate the might of the Iranian people and their determination to defend the country from all threats.

He added the exercises do not pose a threat to neighboring countries, but on the contrary are meant to improve security in the region.

Iran is believed to possess one of the largest ballistic missile forces in the developing world, and is reportedly running an ambitious missile development program. Many countries likewise suspect it of developing nuclear weapons through its uranium enrichment program.

Iran Test Fires Three New Missiles

Iran has successfully test-fired three new models of sea missiles in a show of force to assert its military capacities in the Gulf.  For more on this Associated Press news feed, please visit CBN: Test Fire Missiles

Where is the Strait of Hormuz?

The Strait of Hormuz (Arabic: مضيق هرمز‎, Persian: تنگه هرمز‎) is a narrow, strategically important stretch of ocean between the Gulf of Oman in the southeast and the Persian Gulf in the southwest. On the north coast is Iran (Persia) and on the south coast is the United Arab Emirates and Musandam, an exclave of Oman.

The strait at its narrowest is 21 miles wide, having two 1-mile-wide channels for marine traffic separated by a 2-mile-wide buffer zone, and is the only sea passage to the open ocean for large areas of the petroleum exporting Persian Gulf States. Some 20 percent of the world's oil supply passes through the strait every day.  (Wikipedia)
