Jeez...what kooks!

This from the waffle man's wanna be First Lady...they are all delusional...

Aren't conspiracy theorists supposed to be kooks on the fringe? First Lady material...I don't think so.

Thank God for Laura Bush...a woman who just exudes class.

Iran...

Is anybody else out there as worried about Iran as I am. The insurgents in Iraq may have our tit in a ringer for the moment but for my money Iran is just scary as hell. If or when they aquire nukes not only do we need to worry about them being Iraq's neighbor and trying to destabilize what is hopefully a fledgling Republic but then we've got Israel who will be bristling like a startled alley cat. Jeez....this is not good.

Do you believe this...

Kerry actually said today, "I have only one position on Iraq, only one position." HAAAAAAHAAAA!!! Who does this guy think he's kidding? If any of you has seen the Documentary "Kerry on Iraq" (if you haven't it's a must, go to www.kerryoniraq.com) he has taken at least 20 positions on Iraq. Nobody knows who this guy is, I don't even know if he does. It's scary that this guy is even in the running to be the President of the United States. Contrast Kerry to Bush's Speech at the UN today. Here's the link. http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2004/09/20040921-3.html

That's what a real leader acts like. He doesn't pull punches just because of who's in the audience. He does the right thing no matter what opinion polls say. People who support Kerry really can't tell you what excites them about Kerry the candidate...all they know is they HATE Bush. For the life of me I don't understand this mentality or lack thereof.

Some excellent stuff

There is some truely excellent stuff out there about the goings on in Iraq from some of those who are there.

Go to http://www.thegreenside.com This stuff needs to be read.

Also, Hugh Hewitt has a letter from a Marine Major who tells it like it is.

When is the old media gonna learn? They just can't get away with only telling us what they want us to know anymore. Gotta love the net and the other sources of alternative media.

Rather admits he's a Kerry hack!

Finally he tell us what we've known from the start.

"STATEMENT FROM DAN RATHEREXCLUSIVE // Mon Sep 20 2004 11:58:02 ETLast week, amid increasing questions about the authenticity of documents used in support of a 60 MINUTES WEDNESDAY story about President Bush's time in the Texas Air National Guard, CBS News vowed to re-examine the documents in question—and their source—vigorously. And we promised that we would let the American public know what this examination turned up, whatever the outcome.Now, after extensive additional interviews, I no longer have the confidence in these documents that would allow us to continue vouching for them journalistically. I find we have been misled on the key question of how our source for the documents came into possession of these papers. That, combined with some of the questions that have been raised in public and in the press, leads me to a point where—if I knew then what I know now—I would not have gone ahead with the story as it was aired, and I certainly would not have used the documents in question. But we did use the documents. We made a mistake in judgment, and for that I am sorry. It was an error that was made, however, in good faith and in the spirit of trying to carry on a CBS News tradition of investigative reporting without fear or favoritism. Please know that nothing is more important to us than people's trust in our ability and our commitment to report fairly and truthfully."

Thank you to Drudge.

Will post more later.

Very good George Will column...a must read as they say.

You go Bob!

Statement by Former Senator Bob DoleFri Sep 17 2004 00:39:35 ETARLINGTON, VA -- Former Senator Bob Dole issued the following statement: "As Chairman of the Bush-Cheney Veterans Coalition, and as a veteran, I call on John Kerry to demand that MoveOn.org take down their ad depicting a defeated American soldier. It's one thing to debate whether we should take the fight to the terrorists, but depicting an American soldier in effect surrendering in the battle against the terrorists is beyond the pale. I cannot believe that John Kerry, who reminds us daily of his Vietnam service, would possibly approve the disgusting and demoralizing portrayal of American soldiers fighting for us in Iraq, Afghanistan and around the world. John Kerry has raised doubts about our troops' ability to maintain security as well as Iraqi's ability to decide their own future through elections. He has called the allies in Iraq "window dressing." This is all reminiscent of his appearance before a Senate Committee in 1971 where he suggested with nothing but second hand information American GIs were committing atrocities and war crimes of the worst kind in Vietnam. This defeatist attitude undermines the great progress and sacrifices of our men and women in the military and the contributions of our allies who are fighting against terror and standing up for freedom around the world. The politics of pessimism that is being pursued by John Kerry and the extreme liberals demonstrates they are consumed by the past with nothing to offer but attacks on the President's agenda for creating a safer world. John, say it isn't so and denounce this latest effort to divide Americans"

Bob Dole, a Real American Hero!

You gotta love this

This is the worst economy since the depression say the Demacrats.

Here's more good information.

The American economy grew at a strong pace of 4.2 percent during the first quarter of 2004 - well above the historical average. Economic growth over the last three quarters has been the fastest in nearly 20 years, at a 5.5 percent annual rate that would double the size of the economy in 13 years.
President Bush's Actions Are Helping to Fuel Our Economic Recovery
The President's Jobs and Growth tax relief package helped fuel the strong improvement in our economy. It raised the level of economic activity and productivity, which will result in higher incomes and living standards for American workers. Recently released data confirm that the economy is strong and growing stronger.
March's increase in employment was the largest in almost four years. 308,000 new jobs were created in March - the largest monthly increase since April 2000 - and 759,000 jobs have been added over the last 7 months. Additionally, there was a cumulative upward revision of 87,000 jobs for the previous two months, showing that more jobs were created in January and February than initially thought.
The household survey puts the increase in employment even higher at 978,000 over the last 7 months.
The national unemployment rate was 5.7% in March - far below its peak of 6.3% in June 2003, and below the average of the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s.
Over the past year, the unemployment rate has fallen in 44 of the 50 states.
Initial unemployment claims have remained at levels consistent with strong job growth.
American companies are reporting historic levels of growth
Productivity grew from 2000 to 2003 at the fastest 3-year rate in more than 50 years. This has bolstered profits and will lead to significantly higher real wages for workers.
More manufacturers are reporting increased activity and new orders than at any time in 20 years. The ISM Manufacturing employment index in March was at its highest level since 1987.
Household spending continues to be strong. As a result of the President's 2001 and 2003 tax cuts, personal consumption levels have risen significantly. Real after-tax incomes are up by 10% since December 2000 - substantially better than those following the last recession.
Retail sales other than motor vehicles in the first quarter of 2004 increased 11.6 percent, more than double the average annual rate of growth over the last decade.
Consumer confidence is at its highest level in 3 months and is rising. The Conference Board said its index of consumer confidence increased 4.4 points to 92.9 in April, from 88.5 in March. Consumers' expectations about employment are at their highest level in nearly 20 years.
Housing construction in March surged to levels near those of December 2003, when they were at their highest levels in almost 20 years.
In the first quarter of 2004, the national homeownership rate remained at a record high of 68.6 percent, originally set in the fourth quarter of 2003.
Minority homeownership set a new quarterly record of 50.8 percent in the first quarter, up 0.2 percentage points from the fourth quarter and up 1.5 percentage points from the first quarter of 2003.
Inflation remains restrained, with the core CPI rising only 1.6 percent and the core finished-goods PPI rising only 0.7 percent over the last 12 months.
Mortgage rates remain near historic lows, making homebuying easier and more affordable.


Why people are so pessimistic is beyond me.

Bush Blowout!

Drudge reports "Gallup Shows Bush Blowout: 14 Point Lead Over Kerry" Did I tell you? Once voters finally started seriously start paying attention they see just who and what John Kerry stands for. The extreme left liberal views of America. The average American simply doesn't fall on the extreme left or right. In my opinion most American's fall a little more to the right but I don't have any data to back that up at the moment, just a feeling I have.

Dan is finished, but hey, I could be wrong....I don't think so, but I could be.

Here is something on the aftermath of the Beslan massacre in Russia.

http://www.nzherald.co.nz/storydisplay.cfm?storyID=3591951&thesection=news&thesubsection=world

I tend to agree with the Russians on this one. Russia has every right if no the obligation to go after the bastards who did this and make them pay. If I lost my child is Beslan, I'd be signing up for the Russian Security Forces right now. Here's something I wrote about how I felt about this a couple of weeks ago before I started the blog.

So it’s come to this. Wantonly and maliciously targeting and murdering children in cold blood. More than 150 children slaughtered by Islamic Jihadists…terrorists…cowards. The massacre in Beslan, Russia should serve as a reminder of just who we are dealing with in our war on terror. What kind of savages murder children to advance a cause?

Those that didn’t get it before, I pray understand now, just who this enemy is and what he is capable of. You can’t negotiate with terrorists who would turn a school full of innocent parents and children into a slaughter house. You can’t turn a blind eye and hope they leave you alone and you can’t buy them off. The only solution is to root them out where they hide and kill them. That’s all these cowards understand. This is war. A war not of our choosing but a war forced on us. It doesn’t matter if you’re a Republican or Democrat, Liberal or Conservative, black or white, rich or poor and now, apparently, it doesn’t even matter if you’re an adult or a child. They want us dead, every one of us. For the average American it’s tough to wrap our minds around that because that’s not who we are.

Those that believe our battle in Iraq is creating more terrorists just don’t get it. Iraq is but a battle in the larger war against Islamic terrorism. These groups have been at war with us for years; it just took an event like 9/11 to make us realize it. There are those who will tell you that the terror threat is hyped and is being used as a scare tactic. Over 150 dead children in Russia and over 3000 of our countrymen dead on 9/11; that’s not a scare tactic, that’s the reality of the danger we face today. Everyday I thank God that we have brave men and women who willingly put their lives in harms way, taking the fight to these monsters, instead of waiting for them to hit us again. It is a debt we will never be able to repay. Those of us who remain here must be steadfast and resolute in the face of rising casualty figures; we owe our fighting men and women no less. Every American lost in this war on terror is a tragedy and we are right to cringe every time we hear of another countryman’s death. But what is the alternative? Do we wait for them to hit us again, and again, and again? Do we wait for another 9/11 or Beslan? Or do we continue taking the fight to them? In this epic struggle there is no middle ground.



That's all for now.

One last thing...

for tonight. If you haven't been fortunate enough to hear the genius that is Glenn Beck you must familiarize yourself. This man and his producer Stu are political comedy geniuses. Go here http://www.glennbeck.com

Kick this off!

Just wanted to kick off my new blog! This will mostly be a political blog about the news and happenings of the day with my opinions intermixed....I hope I will not be the only one reading them because then...what would be the point? Anyway, here goes!

Let's start with Rathergate! I am predicting Rather is out the door in a month or less. I simply do not understand how CBS can continue to defend this tripe in the face of mountains of evidence and certified document experts saying there is simply no way these docs are legit. Go to http://hughhewitt.com for all the latest and a much more in depth look at this. Hugh also hosts a very fine radio program...check out his site for details.

The Bush lead...I'll keep this short. This lead will only grow in the weeks ahead...it's over for the Waffle man...this won't even be close.

That'll do it for now...go stuff to do. Hope somebody looks at this...let me know what you think.
