Ruling: Telcoms Not Liable for ‘Illegal Spying’
Looks like the anti-Bushies lost another one this week when lawsuits against telecommunications companies claiming that they assisted the Bush administration in “illegally spying on Americans” were dismissed in San Francisco. Federal district judge Vaughn Walker ruled that Congress didn’t violate the Constitution by allowing the U.S. attorney-general to “certify privately to the court that the companies had been asked to co-operate in an antiterrorism | Read More »
Obama Comments On The Little Rock Arkansas Terrorist Attack
I’m done being nice. I’ll stay respectful though…… somewhat. On Monday, 1 June 2009 at 10:15 am local time, The United States was once again the scene of an attack by what some call ‘The Religion Of Peace’. It was the first such attack on US sovereign land since September 11th 2001. It took approximately 4 hours after a fatal shooting at a Little Rock | Read More »
Obama Silent on First Terror Attack Since 9/11
Those wondering how long it would take for the first act of terrorism to be perpetrated on American soil under President Barack Obama did not have to wait long. The murder of a U.S. military recruiter by a Muslim convert in Arkansas yesterday marks the return of the war on terror to America after just four months of the new Administration’s systematic dismantling of the | Read More »
Lefty Logic Fingers Democrat Leaders with Inciting Violence
The constant hate mongering by Democrat leadership and network sycophants most likely has played a very large role in the recent killing of a soldier just out of basic training.

Cheney Lost to Bush by David Brooks
Cheney Lost to Bush By DAVID BROOKS I always enjoy reading articles where I gain new insight. While I only agree with David Brooks 50% of the time, I always read his columns. Assuming that he has his facts right, he makes the case that there was a very serious & strong disagreement between George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. Then he goes into how | Read More »
How GITMO could save America
Cheney and Obama held their twin security/torture/GITMO speeches yesterday. Obama delivered his usual mesmerizing, self-centered speech, in which he complained about the “mess” that the previous adminstration had left him. As Politico points out, he’s given this type of speech before. In his speech, which had been booked weeks in advance, Cheney argued that the anger over waterboarding is “recklessness cloaked in righteousness”. But these | Read More »
Liz Cheney: no middle ground.
Another good bit from Liz Cheney: Visit msnbc.com for Breaking News, World News, and News about the Economy Allahpundit is a little surprised that Liz’s popularity with the base has risen so quickly; I’m not. For whatever reason, a full-throat defense of Bush’s decisions on how to fight the GWOT were few and far between during the Bush administration itself, and that grated with Republicans. | Read More »
Cheney V. Obama: The Mature Statesman & The Smug Elitist
Former Vice President Dick Cheney has re-emerged in recent weeks to remind us of the reason why Governor Bush selected him 9 years ago to serve as his number two. Cheney is a mature statesman unafraid to speak truth to power and to stand on his convictions no matter the cost to his reputation. He is a man who has decided that the protection of | Read More »
Zamboni vs Triple Salchow Championship Boxing Match
Neophyte politician Barack Obama met his match in Dick Cheney a mature, experienced statesman. Obama may think Rules for Radicals techniques will work on Dick, but he is dealing with a valiant, unmovable warrior. Obama is used to undying adulation and goes largely unchallenged in spite of providing minimal strategic policy details. Obama hasn’t a clue what he is doing and Dick Cheney is neither | Read More »
Bring On the Truth Commission
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) held a torturous press conference today to address charges that she raised no objections when informed in 2002 and 2003 about the Bush administration’s use of waterboarding and other enhanced interrogation techniques on terrorist detainees. Pelosi was out of the country last week, so perhaps she can be forgiven for not realizing that the narrative on this story had been | Read More »
The votes are in: No Gitmo terrorists in our backyards
Brothers Dan and Brian wrote earlier this week about the pushback the Obamanauts are encountering in their efforts to shut down Gitmo and ship the terrorists into the US. It seems that unbelievable assertions such as Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) blathering that terrorists should get the “same due process as our own troops” and that somehow trying to keep terrorists out of America is a | Read More »
Rahm Emanuel asks Israelis to abandon Israel and throw themselves into the ocean and die.
www.thepoliticalclass.com Rahm Emanuel asks Israelis to abandon Israel and throw themselves into the ocean and die. Well he didn’t say those exact words but he did demand that Israel make peace with the Palestinian leadership. Please note that I said Palestinian leadership as that is who represents all Palestinians. And seeing that Palestinian children learn geography from textbooks in which Israel doesn’t even exist then | Read More »
WE REPUBLICANS – CHANGE OR BE ETERNAL MINORITY PARTY
The headline is not hyperbole. We Republicans have failed to communicate our values and beliefs well enough to be elected to a majority. Without serious change in areas of our image and how we communicate to ALL Americans, we are not going to effect any real change that includes control of the three branches of govenment. In fact, unless we change quickly, our party will | Read More »
White House Stupidity Leads to Panic in New York
This clip is from the local Fox affiliate in New York today. New Yorkers seem to be very angry about having been chosen for what seemed to many a re-enactment of 9/11. Buildings were evacuated and people fled in fear of their lives. Some were injured trying to escape what they imagined to be a new terrorist attack. And all because the White House wanted | Read More »
