• Dems Gut Fence Spending To Give To Illegal Immigrant Defense Lawyers

This better make somebody angry. I don’t even have a lot to say for this except that it speaks for itself.

Wash Times

Congress last night passed a giant new spending bill that undermines current plans for a U.S.-Mexico border fence, allowing the Homeland Security Department to build a single-tier barrier rather than the two-tier version that has worked in California. …

“The fact that this was buried in a bloated, 3,500-page omnibus speaks volumes about the Democrats’ unserious approach on border security and illegal immigration,” said House Minority Leader John A. Boehner, Ohio Republican. “Gutting the Secure Fence Act will make our borders less secure, but it’s consistent with the pattern of behavior we’ve seen all year from this majority.”

The 2006 Secure Fence Act specifically called for “two layers of reinforced fencing” and listed five specific sections of border where it should be installed. The new spending bill removes the two-tier requirement and the list of locations.

House Republican Whip Roy Blunt of Missouri said the bill is full of “misguided” policy decisions: “On one page, for instance, you will find a set of new restrictions on the construction of our security fence along the border; on another, $10 million in ‘emergency’ funding for attorneys of illegal immigrants.

What the hell? This is apparently the “New Direction” for the left. Ignore Homeland Security by keeping the borders open, then allow criminals who have no rights in the US to get a defense for their crimes and completely ignore the fact that some statistics say that 80% of the US feels that closing the border is the most important issue of our time.

• Harry “Poopy Pants” Reid Angry At McCain For Quoting Him Correctly

Old Harry “Poopy Pants” Reid is just mad as all tarnation at John McCain for basically correctly quoting him in a radio ad running in South Carolina. He apparently can’t grasp the fact that what he said was disgusting and shows his lack of ability to grasp the basics of being the people’s represative when he said, and I quote, “The War IS Lost” Video of him saying it is below.

 Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) is not at all pleased with a new radio ad being run by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in South Carolina.

According to CNN, McCain’s new ad blasts Reid for saying the “war is lost” earlier in the year. McCain has been one of President Bush’s biggest backers on his Iraq war policy.

“‘Seven months ago, Democrat majority leader Harry Reid said the war in Iraq was lost,” the ad begins. “Well, he was wrong,'” CNN reported.

CNN also noted that “Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, McCain’s most prominent booster in the state, speaks for the majority of the spot, saying ‘the troop surge is working’ and that ‘we need a president prepared to win.'”

Reid is very unhappy with McCain new radio ad, and a Reid aide fired right back at the Arizona Republican tonight.

“While I understand that Senator McCain is fighting to revive his failed presidential campaign, his remarks are at odds with the vast majority of the American people, who are demanding a responsible end to this war,” said Jim Manley, Reid’s spokesman. “These kinds of attacks — and his consistent support of a failed strategy that has kept our troops mired in an endless civil war in another country — will only undermine Senator McCain’s credibility with voters.”

Manley added: “Democrats have given the troops a pay raise, increased funding for veterans and most importantly have fought to give our soldiers what they deserve — a strategy for success. We will continue to oppose Bush Republicans like Senator McCain who are committed to a failed war strategy and to standing in the way of critical needs at home.”

• Old Granny Pelosi Sucks… Yes, in the San Fran Way. (Updated)

Updated With Video! From Gateway Pundit! Click to watch

pelosispeech.jpg

House Speaker (D) San Fran Gran Nancy Pelosi disgraced herself, the Democratic Party which she represents and the job she was elected to do. In a statement made to the press today she said

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is drawing heat for suggesting her political opponents are fond of the war in Iraq.

“The grassroots are justifiably disappointed and I am too that we could not do something to end this war,” Pelosi said at a press conference today. “The assumption that I made that the Republicans would soon see the light and listen to their constituents was not an accurate one.”

She continued: “They like this war. They want this war to continue. We thought that they shared the view of so many people in our country that we need a new direction in Iraq. To affect that we need redeployment of our troops with a goal of a year to do that. But the Republicans have made it very clear that this is just not George Bush’s war, this is the war of the Republicans in Congress.”

Asked to clarify her use of the word “like,” Pelosi backed off her statement of moments before.

“When I say ‘like,’ I shouldn’t say they ‘like’ the war. They support the war, the course of action that the president is on and they are not questioning in terms of his implementation of the war, the execution of the war.”

For this worthless piece of San Fran crap to stand in front of the American people and pretend to profess that she knows what the American People want is disgusting and quite frankly belittling. She’s completely worthless and if nothing hindering to the American People. Go home and roost you chicken shit Nancy Pelosi. Go back to where it’s actually a good thing to suck, San Fran.

• 19 Democrats vote NO to Christmas! (Updated)

Christmas. Or should I say the “War On Christmas!” The “War On Terror” is just a bumper sticker but the “War On Christmas” is now a legislative reality.

Yesterday on Capital Hill there was a vote, actually several votes regarding observances of several religious holidays.

Excerpts from three recent House resolutions regarding religious observances:

RAMADAN
HR 635: “Acknowledges the onset of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting and spiritual renewal, and conveys its respect to Muslims in the United States and throughout the world on this occasion.”
Approved 376-0

DIWALI
HR 747: “Acknowledges the onset of Diwali and expresses its deepest respect to Indian Americans and the Indian Diaspora throughout the world on this significant occasion.”
Approved 358-0

CHRISTMAS
HR 847: “Acknowledges the international religious and historical importance of Christmas and the Christian faith.”
Approved 372-9

Whoa, wait a minute… What was the vote on that last one? This couldn’t be right… 372-9?

Surprise surprise, several Democrats drew the line at recognizing Christmas.

Nine Democrats voted No – Ackerman, Clarke, DeGette, Hastings (FL), Lee, McDermott, Scott (VA), Stark and Woolsey.

10 Democrats and 1 Republican voted “Present.” – Conyers, Frank (MA), Holt, Payne, Schakowsky, Schwartz, Wasserman Schultz, Welch (VT) and Yarmuth (Which to ME is the same as voting no).

This is interesting because of this group 17 of the 18 D’s above voted FOR the resolution honoring Ramadan!

What the hell? This vote wasn’t to get extra days off, or to funnel government funds into buying Christmas trees or more ornaments for the White House Christmas tree, it was simply to recognize that Christmas is important to CHRISTIANS! I find it hard to believe that the Democrats listed above could possibly represent the people that they were elected to represent. The people in their districts should be outside of their offices pelting the buildings with ornaments and fruitcakes. The left is constantly misrepresenting the people of this country and the idea that anyone could vote against what is obviously the holiday observed by the majority of Americans is INCONCEIVABLE!

Update:
To prove that my comment was true that this is “nothing more than a branch of the Bush-Derangement Syndrom Tree. Hate the right no matter what. Hate Christians because they live their lives by the word of God not the word of the government.” From the Seattle PI

McDermott said the resolution was a Republican tactic designed to draw attention from pressing issues in Congress, including legislation to boost funding of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program, or SCHIP. President Bush vetoed a bill Thursday that would have expanded the program.

McDermott supported House resolutions this fall to recognize the Islamic holy month of Ramadan and the festival of Diwali, celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs and Jains. He drew the line at Christmas, he said, because the resolution only stated “obvious facts” that Christianity was the predominant faith in the U.S. and that many Christians and non-Christians celebrated Christmas.

“It’s Christmas time. There’re lots of Christians in the U.S. Hurray for Christmas. It’s ridiculous,” McDermott said, giving his take on the resolution.

Rather than “wasting time on this stuff,” he said, people should be protesting Bush’s vetoes of expanding health insurance for children.

“We’re talking about Christmas, and we do not care about kids in the state of Washington,” McDermott said.

• Nancy Pelosi & The Democrats: A Study In Cowardice & Ignorance

It came to light a few weeks ago that the CIA/Men In Black had used water-boarding to extract information from 3 al-Qaeda suspects. Those suspects being Khalid “Shake Shake Shake” Mohamed, Abu Zubaydah and a third as-of-now unnamed suspect. Zubaydah, the first high-ranking al-Qaeda member captured after the September 11 terrorist attacks, broke 35 seconds after he was subjected to the technique, said John Kiriakou, who served as a CIA interrogator in Pakistan. After that Abu Zubaydah began providing interrogators with information that led to the disruption of “maybe dozens” of planned attacks, Mr Kiriakou said.

Mr Kiriakou said he was given a detailed description of the waterboarding by fellow team members. The next day Abu Zubaydah told his captors he would tell them whatever they wanted, Mr Kiriakou said. “He said that Allah had come to him in his cell and told him to co-operate, because it would make things easier for his brothers.”

Yeah right. the only thing that came to him in the middle of the night was his yellow streak and it’s one thing all of them have in common. They’re all cowards. But the real question is who are the people who are publicly chastising the GOP for using these techniques and why now? This is all stemming from the public being told that tapes of these interrogations had been destroyed. This is about 50 blog posts worth of info so I am just going to say this, the CIA had permission from it’s lawyers to destroy those tapes and to be honest with you, good for them. The lefty media would have just leaked it and shown our enemies exactly what to expect should they be captured. So burn away. You can go to Hot Air for more details. More importantly who knew about this torture and for how long? I’ll tell you who… Congress, specifically, Nancy Pelosi.

In September 2002, four members of Congress met in secret for a first look at a unique CIA program designed to wring vital information from reticent terrorism suspects in U.S. custody. For more than an hour, the bipartisan group, which included current House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), was given a virtual tour of the CIA’s overseas detention sites and the harsh techniques interrogators had devised to try to make their prisoners talk.

Among the techniques described, said two officials present, was waterboarding, a practice that years later would be condemned as torture by Democrats and some Republicans on Capitol Hill. But on that day, no objections were raised. Instead, at least two lawmakers in the room asked the CIA to push harder, two U.S. officials said.

“The briefer was specifically asked if the methods were tough enough,” said a U.S. official who witnessed the exchange.

Individual lawmakers’ recollections of the early briefings varied dramatically, but officials present during the meetings described the reaction as mostly quiet acquiescence, if not outright support. “Among those being briefed, there was a pretty full understanding of what the CIA was doing,” said Goss, who chaired the House intelligence committee from 1997 to 2004 and then served as CIA director from 2004 to 2006. “And the reaction in the room was not just approval, but encouragement.”

I highlighted her name, San Fran Gran Nan. She knew about this and had no objection to it. That is until now. Why now? What has happened between then and now? Hmmm… Could it be the new poll numbers show a favorable outlook on Iraq? Naw, they wouldn’t do that would they? Damn right they would. Blame Bush is their motto and this is a rather poor attempt to do so in light of the fact the the war is turning around and they are all being made to look like cowards and quitters. So how do you turn your 11% favorability rating around? You use the oldest trick in the book… Nothing up my sleeve, nothing up my other sleeve…

Cowardice & Ignorance is the name of this post and it couldn’t be more fitting. You voted them into power and look who’s paying the price for it. The lefty’s credibility (if they ever had any), our soldiers in the field and politics as a whole. How could you trust these cowards, liars and all around dick-holes? But then again, anybody but Bush right? Because he’s a liar right? Yeah right.

• (Video) The left… Disrespecting 9/11…

These are the people who want to take our government over. These are the people the left listens to. These are the people who are allowed to continue living in our great country. I swear if I saw someone treating our flag like this or speaking in front of me like this a violent side of myself that I keep well hidden would slowly come to life. I swear they would meet me in the middle of the night and they would be fed the flag they desecrate. Wake up America. This will be your voice if the left is allowed to come to power more than they are now.

• Jackassery + Douchbaggery = Sh*t Sandwich

Sorry my minions I’ve had to take a few days away from here to get some things in my real life straightened out, so here is my first shot across the bow…

I am from Minnesota, I know Minnesota, I have friends in Minnesota. For God sakes will someone tell this a-hole that he is not going to win in Minnesota? If any of my friends are reading this and they have been thinking to themselves, “Hey, that Franken guy seems alright…”, I will kill you.

• Pelosi… WTF?

UPDATE 11/20 Below Story

How could an elected official who is payed to represent our needs and wants be so completely out of touch with us? This isn’t like it’s the first time we’ve seen the “woman” behind the curtain. It seems that all of

their attempts to wrangle the immigration issue is coming from another planet. How long will it take for the public who vote for people like Pelosi to understand that when she and other democrats are seemingly ignorant to the people’s wishes and come out saying that the people just “don’t understand the issue” are just calling them stupid? Some polls say that 80% of America want something done about illegal aliens. What do they want done? Certainly not this…

Nancy Pelosi tries to force the Salvation Army to hire people who can’t speak English.

It’s been less than a week since New York’s Sen. Hillary Clinton and Gov. Eliot Spitzer had to climb down from their support of driver’s licenses for illegal aliens. Now House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has moved to kill an amendment that would protect employers from federal lawsuits for requiring their workers to speak English. Among the employers targeted by such lawsuits: the Salvation Army.

• Winners Never Quit / Quitters Never Win!

When will they get it? When will they stop acting like they have the moral high-ground? I know, they won’t stop until their Bush-Derangement Syndrome has somehow proven him wrong. Their children will hopefully see them for what they are. Disgraces.

Democrats controlling the House of Representatives will try again to bring American combat in Iraq to an end when it debates legislation this week tying new war funds to troop withdrawals, Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday.

The legislation, similar to a bill President George W. Bush vetoed earlier this year, “gives voice to the concerns of the American people” over a war that is now in its fifth year and “with no light at the end of the tunnel,” Pelosi, a California Democrat, said.

As early as Friday, the House will debate the plan that would give Bush only $50 billion of the $196 billion in new funds he has asked for to continue fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. Most of the money would go to Iraq.

The House repeatedly this year has passed legislation aimed at ending the Iraq war, only to see it die in the Senate or killed by Bush.

Congress is expected to consider the rest of the funding sometime next year.

Pelosi said the money would fund the war for another four months. But as they have done in the past, House Democrats will try to attach conditions requiring the Pentagon to immediately begin withdrawing some of the 169,000 troops in Iraq and with the goal of completing the withdrawal by December, 2008.

Pelosi sidestepped a reporter’s question on whether congressional support for the idea has grown enough to overturn an inevitable veto by Bush.
