Cindy Sheehan: Protest Backfired.

Well, well, this is very interesting for someone who said she had the pulse of the American Public. Not enough, Cindy. Read it and weap.


Apparently, 79% of those in an ABC survey said Sheehan's protesting and cursing did not affect their view on the war. Infact, about 10% were more pro-troops than not, thanks to Cindy. And about 9% said she helped turn them to the light......

Awww, Cindy made a difference.....

Too bad it was for the so-called warmongers, Sheehan.

Kicking Us While Were Down IV: RFK Jr. blames MS Gov for Katrina

Wanna guess what RFK Jr., rabid enviro freak and now nutcase, blames the Governor of Mississippi, Hailey Barbour for the storm. I guess there's no question of validity since RFK is a Democrat now Green Party guy, and Barbour is a GOP Republican. That's never an issue, right?

Well, RFK Jr. would have us all believe that we caused the hurricane. That our cars and trucks did it. Yeah, considering the whole world has a hand in it. RFK said we amount to 25% of the emissions. Love to know his source..... Well, Robby, who accounts for the other 75%?

Thank God your dad and uncle aren't alive. You and Uncle Ted are a disgrace to your families. If that's possible....

Pretty brave saying that San Fransicko, aka Sodom by the Bay.......

New Orleans Looting is Spreading

Martial Law was declared, but how is it enforced?

Not only are the looters stealing from someone else whose livelihood is in limbo, they are putting their lives at risk for some replaceable goods. And of course, will need to be rescued, when maybe someone who is literally dying, needs it..... Looting costs lives, and property. Lives most of all. Life from the property owner who was fleeced. Life from a looter, if shot. And life of the next of kin, not killed, but altered knowing their loved one got shot out of desparation.

Food is one thing, but you can't eat a dress or DVD player or a Rolex very well.....



Crisis Grows As Flooded New Orleans LootedAug 31 12:41 AM US/Eastern

By ADAM NOSSITERAssociated Press Writer
Helicopters dropped sandbags on two broken levees as the water kept rising in the streets. The governor drew up plans to evacuate just about everyone left in town. Looters ransacked stores. Doctors in their scrubs had to use canoes to bring supplies to blacked-out hospitals.
New Orleans sank deeper into crisis Tuesday, a full day after Hurricane Katrina hit.
"It's downtown Baghdad," said tourist Denise Bollinger, who snapped pictures of looting in the French Quarter. "It's insane."
The mayor estimated that 80 percent of New Orleans was flooded, while a countless number of residents were still stranded on rooftops.
Hospitals were running out of power and scrambling to find places to take their patients. At one clinic, broken glass littered some areas and patients and staff had fallen on floors slick with floodwaters.
"It's like being in a Third World country," said Mitch Handrich, a registered nurse manager at Charity Hospital, where nurses were ventilating patients by hand after the power and then the backup generator failed. Some 300 patients had yet to be evacuated, but the babies in intensive care had been flown out.
"We're just trying to stay alive," Handrich said.
Gov. Kathleen Blanco said that everyone still in the city, now huddled in the Superdome and other rescue centers, needs to leave. She said late Tuesday she wanted the Superdome _ with no electricity or air conditioning _ to be evacuated within two days.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency is considering putting people on cruise ships, in tent cities, mobile home parks, and so-called floating dormitories _ boats the agency uses to house its own employees.
Rescue teams were still picking up people throughout the city Tuesday, leaving them on island-like highway overpasses and on a levee to wait to be moved again. Eventually, they will end up in the Superdome, where 15,000 to 20,000 people have taken refuge, said Louisiana National Guard Maj. Gen. Bennett C. Landreneau. One person died at the Superdome attempting to jump from one level to a lower one.
Among the evacuees are 5,000 inmates from New Orleans and suburbs that need to be moved. Officials were trying to figure out how.
The historic French Quarter appeared to have been spared the worst flooding, but its stores were getting the worst of human nature.
"The looting is out of control. The French Quarter has been attacked," Councilwoman Jackie Clarkson said. "We're using exhausted, scarce police to control looting when they should be used for search and rescue while we still have people on rooftops."
As Sen. Mary Landrieu flew over the area by helicopter, a group of people smashed a window at a convenience store and jumped in.
At a drug store in the French Quarter, people were running out with grocery baskets and coolers full of soft drinks, chips and diapers. One looter shot and wounded a fellow looter, who was taken to a hospital and survived.
Only rooftops were visible in several neighborhoods and the occasional building was in flames.
On a grassy hill in the Carrolton neighborhood, a group of people watched the water quickly rising in the street, about a foot an hour by some estimates.
William Washington had gone to bed in dry house Monday night, well after the hurricane had passed. The water came up Tuesday after the levee broke, and by afternoon his home was flooded.
"We're trying to get to the Superdome," Washington said as he waited with neighbors. "We're waiting for the National Guard. The radio mentioned that they would pick people up."
With hundreds, if not thousands, of people still stranded in flooded homes, attics and rooftops across the city, rescue boats were bypassing the dead to reach the living, Mayor C. Ray Nagin said.
"We're not even dealing with dead bodies," Nagin said. "They're just pushing them on the side."
A few more feet of water could wipe out the entire city water system, said Terry Ebbert, the city's homeland security chief.
The intestates are impassable, the bridges may be unstable and no one knows if the buildings can withstand the damage brought by Katrina, the governor said after flying over the region.
"We saw block after block, neighborhood and neighborhood inundated," Blanco said, her voice breaking with emotion. "It's just heartbreaking."
Sean Jeffries of New Orleans had already been evacuated from one French Quarter hotel when he was ordered out of a second hotel Tuesday because of rising water.
The 37-year-old banker _ who admitted to looting some food from a nearby supermarket _ said the hotel guests were told they were being taken to a convention center, but from there, they didn't know.
"We're in the middle of a national tragedy," he said as he popped purloined grapes in his mouth. "But I know this city. We will be back. It may take awhile. But we will be back."

President Releases Oil Reserves

Some say not to release the emergency reserves. Well, I'd call Hurricane KAtrina an emergency. And since that area of the Gulf accounted for about 25% of US Oil Production and Refining, I'd say this IS AN EMERGENCY!!!!!




Wed Aug 31 2005 10:20:34 ET

President Bush is considering an address to the nation asking citizens to conserve energy, a top White House says. Bush ordered the release of oil from federal petroleum reserves to help refiners affected by Hurricane Katrina. Bush returned to Washington on Wednesday to oversee the federal response to the historic disaster. He plans to coordinate federal efforts, across more than a dozen agencies, to assist hurricane victims. "Still undecided is whether or not to call for a nationwide effort to reduce energy consumption during this emergency," a top Bush source explains. "It is seriously being considered." A second White House source says there are no plans for the president to address the country on gas. Developing...

Kicking Us While We're Down III: CNN blames Iraq War for Hurricane Difficulties....

CNN, I expect no less of the Crescent News Network than this. They say too many National Guard and reservists are in Iraq. What they forgot to say is how many in Iraq are not Rescue Ops types or medical or specialists.....

Some 6,000 National Guard personnel from Louisiana and Mississippi who would otherwise be available to help deal with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina are in Iraq.

Nice try, since we've got more NG and Reserves stateside, jackasses.....

Even so, Pentagon spokesman Lawrence Di Rita said the states have adequate National Guard units to handle the hurricane needs. He said about 6,500 National Guard troops were available in Louisiana, about 7,000 in Mississippi, nearly 10,000 in Alabama and about 8,200 in Florida.
The 1st U.S. Army, based at Fort Gillem near Atlanta, has 1,600 National Guard troops who were training to go to Iraq. They will be available to assist the states, if necessary.

And more rats are looking to pick flesh off the hurricane story.

CNN, we knew you were biased, but this is low even for you.......


Kicking Us While We're Down Part II: Oil Price Gouging

OK, President Bush, tap our reserves now, before the oil traders, speculators, and other parasites make more money off of us........

Oil reserves are for emergencies, so what do we call this?????



Energy Prices Surge on Pipeline SnagsAug 30 2:26 PM US/Eastern

By BRAD FOSSAP Business Writer

The shutdown of oil platforms, refineries and pipelines along the Gulf Coast drove energy prices to new highs Tuesday, all-but-guaranteeing a surge in pump prices in the days ahead. Oil prices briefly jumped above $70 a barrel.
The trading frenzy on futures markets reflected uncertainty and fear about the full extent of the damage Hurricane Katrina inflicted on key energy infrastructure, as well as the constraints being felt where actual shipments of gasoline, heating oil and jet fuel are bought and sold.
"This is an extremely serious situation," said Tom Kloza, director of the Wall, N.J.-based Oil Price Information Service.
Analysts said that even if Katrina did less harm than feared its effects would nevertheless tighten the availability of already scarce refined products, such as heating oil and gasoline.
In wholesale markets on the Gulf Coast, some gasoline was being priced as high as $2.85 a gallon and in the Midwest, prices were as high as $2.65 a gallon, Kloza said. Retail costs are typically 60 cents higher, meaning motorists in these regions could very well see pump prices in some markets exceed $3 a gallon.
Light sweet crude for October delivery rose $2.15 to $69.35 a barrel by afternoon on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Prices had reached as high as $70.85, a new high on Nymex, although still below the inflation-adjusted high of about $90 a barrel that was set in 1980.
September gasoline futures rose 29.94 cents, or 14.5 percent, to $2.36 a gallon on Nymex, where trading was halted briefly after the exchange's 25-cent trading limit was reached. Heating oil futures climbed by 12.12 cents to $2.03 a gallon.
Natural gas futures raced higher as well. Natural gas for October delivery traded at $11.75 per 1,000 cubic feet, an increase of 61.1 cents.
Analysts believe that the operations of natural gas processors and chemical manufacturers, who depend heavily on the natural gas as a feedstock, could be disrupted for days, if not weeks.
The runup in natural gas and heating oil futures may mean sharply higher home-heating bills lie ahead this winter.
In addition to refineries and oil platforms, critical infrastructure that remained out of service included:
_ the Louisiana Offshore Oil Port, the largest oil import terminal in the United States.
_ the Colonial Pipeline, which transports refined products such as gasoline, heating oil and jet fuel from Houston to markets as far away as the Northeast.
_ the Plantation Pipe Line, which transports fuel from refineries in Mississippi and Louisiana to consuming markets as far away as northern Virginia.
_ the Capline pipeline system, which transports crude oil from the Gulf to the Midwest.
"These are pretty challenging circumstances," Kloza said.
Companies are scrambling to assess damage to their platforms, pipelines and refineries _ a task easier said than done in some cases because, in addition to flooding, the Gulf Coast has been plagued by power outages.
Most energy companies still have not been able to visit their facilities and are relying on aerial surveillance for preliminary examinations.
Such is the case for Chevron Corp., which shut down its 325,000 barrel a day Pascagoula, Miss., refinery before Katrina's arrival. "We are hoping to get in there today, but that's the issue _ getting there," said company spokesman Michael Barrett.
Marathon Oil Corp. was also playing a waiting game to reach its 245,000 barrel a day refinery in Garyville, La. "We are trying to re- board and assess what, if any, damage has occurred and what work needs to be done before we can restart," spokesman Paul Weeditz said.
Others were able to identify some trouble by late Monday. Valero Energy Corp. said its St. Charles refinery in Norco, La., which has capacity of 260,000 barrels a day, might not be restarted for another two weeks.
Nymex oil futures settled at $67.20 a barrel Monday, easing from highs above $70 a barrel amid speculation that the Bush administration might loan crude from the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve to refiners that request it.
But some analysts on Tuesday said the impact of such a move would be minimal.
"The release of crude out of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve is not as critical as making sure that there is enough refined product supply and that there are refineries to process the crude," said analyst Victor Shum from Texas-based consultants Purvin & Gertz.
At least eight Gulf Coast refineries in the path of Hurricane Katrina shut down or reduced operations, taking out anywhere from 8-10 percent of production capacity, according to company and federal reports.
Katrina, which struck the Gulf Coast as a Category 4 storm, was blamed for at least 55 deaths and the evacuation of more than 700 offshore platforms and rigs. It slammed into a major oil production hub at a time when producers worldwide were already struggling to cope.
Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries secretary general Adnan Shihab-Eldin reiterated Tuesday that the group will supply extra barrels of crude oil to refiners if they want them. Previous OPEC pledges have done little to ease market fears over supply.
The U.S. Minerals Management Service said Monday that 92 percent of the region's oil output was out of service, with more than 3 million barrels of production lost since Friday. The agency said 83 percent of natural gas output was shut down, resulting in a loss of 15.5 billion cubic feet of lost production since Friday.
The Gulf of Mexico normally produces 2 million barrels of crude oil a day and about 10 billion cubic feet a day of natural gas.

Kicking Us While We're Down: Deutschen beaten ze Dead Global Warming Warning Horse.

Danke Schaen, Scheissekopfen!

Not only is New Orleans flooding worse, than when the storm hit, the German liberal ragsheet, Der Spiegel, is rubbing it in.......

Can't wait to see how the Germans will whine if they get flooded anytime soon......


Don't expect any help from Germany or anyone else, either. We helped out in the tsunami, and every other damn disaster, and we'll still get shafted. Some allies. And these are the ingrates and backstabbers you liberals love kissing up to.

Screw them and screw you.

Looters Will Not Be Tolerated: Said MS Governor

Well, the looting is starting, and so will any punishment......


Article: Reports of looting in New Orleans
Mon Aug 29 2005 22:37:31 ET

Police with automatic weapons were called to patrol a grocery store after looters went on a rampage, WWL-TV reports.

Police with automatic weapons were called to patrol a grocery store after looters went on a rampage there, grabbing groceries and ripping apart ATMs. The pharmacy was ransacked and merchandise was thrown all around the store. Mississippi

Governor Haley Barbour said looting will not be tolerated in his state. "I have instructed the highway patrol and the National Guard to treat looters ruthlessly," Barbour said. "Looting will not be not be tolerated and rules of engagement will be as aggressive as the law allows."

And by ruthless treatment, this is not cuffing and calling a lawyer. It's more like shoot on sight. Good.... These parasite looters deserve what they get exploiting the hurricane and whatnot.

Now, I wanna see them put their money where their mouth is, when prosecuting the price gougers, flybynight roofers, and of course certain oil companies that will overcharge.....

Who is Hugo Chavez?

Who Is Hugo Chavez?
New York Sun Staff EditorialAugust 29, 2005URL:
For all the fuss about Pat Robertson's suggestion that America assassinate Hugo Chavez, there's been surprisingly little focus on just what Mr. Chavez has done to prompt such a rumination.
There's Mr. Chavez's extremist stance against America in the war on Islamic extremist terrorism. He opposed not only the Iraq war but even the effort to destroy Al Qaeda in Afghanistan after the attacks on America of September 11, 2001.
There's Mr. Chavez's treatment of his neighbors. A protege of Mr. Chavez, Evo Morales, for example, led the June demonstrations in Bolivia that resulted in the resignation of the pro-American president, Carlos Mesa. In his recent trip to Paraguay, Defense Secretary Rumsfeld said: "There is certainly evidence that both Cuba and Venezuela have been involved in the situation in Bolivia in unhelpful ways." FARC in Colombia, which the American government has designated a terrorist organization for its activities including car-bombing a Bogota nightclub, is another favorite of Mr. Chavez.
And then there's Mr. Chavez's treatment of Venezuela's own citizens. The State Department's "Country Reports on Human Rights Practices" for 2004 writes that the human rights group Red de Apoyo reported that on January 10, 2004, nine men were rounded up and executed. On March 10, Juan Carlos Zambrano "died after being beaten by soldiers who had detained him." His girlfriend was raped by the same soldiers. "On March 30, eight soldiers were burned in a punishment cell ... two of the soldiers died of their injuries." The State Department reports further that the International Association of Broadcasters complained that Mr. Chavez forces outlets to air his speeches.
Freedom House rates Venezuela as only "partly free" and said that Mr. Chavez's "victory" in August's recall vote was marked by credible reports from independent observers of "voter harassment, including physical intimidation and the reassignment of thousands of voters to far-away polling stations, and vote tampering."
None of this amounts to justification for the American government to assassinate Mr. Chavez, though we certainly wouldn't shed any tears if he were removed from power by some resourceful Venezuelans. But the contrast between the left's loud fuss over Rev. Robertson's comments and their silence about Mr. Chavez's actions signals that whatever its motivation, the furor surely doesn't stem from an evenhanded application of principles of nonviolence or human rights.

Sheehan calls other war moms "brainwashed," says no compassion for them

Cindy Sheehan, you ignorant slut......

Now, she's lashing out at the Gold Star Moms and other war families, which support President Bush and our troops' mission. Sheehan is going to go to far, and I hope there's a camera when she's exposed for the bitter and vile shrew that she is....

Article link:

Sheehan thinks her grief, and her supporters choreographed tearworks are the only suitable ones. I guess that explains why thousands more came to Crawford to protest her sickening antics. Well, you know how Ted Kennedy rode a hearse into the Senate Seat all these years. Expect, Cindy Sheehan, if she ran, to ride her son's white cross into whatever riches and new job she gets. Talk about your ghouls.

Here's some of what the harpy had to say:

"I have been silent on the Gold Star Moms who still support [President Bush] and his war by saying that they deserve the right to their opinions because they are in as much pain as I am. I would challenge them, though, at this point to start thinking for themselves," Sheehan said.
"How can these moms who still support George Bush and his insane war in Iraq want more innocent blood shed just because their sons or daughters have been killed? I don't understand it," Sheehan stated. "I am starting to lose a little compassion for them. I know they have been as brainwashed as the rest of America, but they know the pain and heartache and they should not wish it on another. However, I still feel their pain so acutely and pray for these 'continue the murder and mayhem' moms to see the light."

OK, now it's time to pick this turkey apart. First, she asserts that the rest of the grieving families are brainwashed, and might as well have said STUPID. Nice way to get others to your cause, you heartless harlot. Also, nice condescending tone, in saying I hope they see things my way, tone..... There's your compassionate liberal for you. The only suitable grief, is theirs, as coached by and filmed by CNN. Sheehan's son is probably none too happy over this.

Although, there is the response from the other "brainwashed" and "stupid" pro-troops families.....

"What an elitist, arrogant [remark]," Hallie Lord writes in an online messageboard. "The fact that some of us mothers vehemently disagree with you does not mean that we have been brainwashed. We are perfectly capable of thinking for ourselves and forming intelligent opinions about this war. ... The more you belittle others the less likely they are to hear and respond to your message."

And speaking of commentary, here's some more......

"That's just outright mean and cruel, and ignorant," added Dan Kasun. "I hope the media picks up on this, as Americans may actually start to see how spiteful Cindy is, and therefore fully understand why her position is so incredibly wrong. That should help gain support for getting the job done right."
Another poster states, "Sheehan is opening up the Pandora's box here. She should look in the mirror before accusing others of being brainwashed. After this little tirade it is a free-for-all and no one is guilty of character assassination after her words."

Yeah, when will the media pick up on Sheehan's sniping at other grieving families. Should they all be bitter and mean spirited like her? No, and let's hope they do not start down her path of self-sorrow, and political tooling, and of course, using the grave as a soapbox for her personal rage and ranting.......

And there are plenty more of the brainwashed who agree with her.

How many of them really lost someone in Iraq? Or are they just leaching off this tragedy like they did, 9/11, Nick Berg's murder, and the current war.

No one is pro-war, or pro-death, like Cindy thinks everyone but her is. There is pro-troops and pro-victory, which is what the majority are for.

Cindy Sheehan, that Dorian Gray portrait of you is sprouting some large demon horns.

Anti-Gay Church Protests at GI Funerals

Aug 28, 12:06 AM (ET)By BETH RUCKER

SMYRNA, Tenn. (AP) - Members of a church say God is punishing American soldiers for defending a country that harbors gays, and they brought their anti-gay message to the funerals Saturday of two Tennessee soldiers killed in Iraq.
The church members were met with scorn from local residents. They chased the church members cars' down a highway, waving flags and screaming "God bless America."
"My husband is over there, so I'm here to show my support," 41-year-old Connie Ditmore said as she waved and American flag and as tears came to her eyes. "To do this at a funeral is disrespectful of a family, no matter what your beliefs are."
The Rev. Fred Phelps, founder of Westboro Baptist in Kansas, contends that American soldiers are being killed in Iraq as vengeance from God for protecting a country that harbors gays. The church, which is not affiliated with a larger denomination, is made up mostly of Phelps' children, grandchildren and in-laws.
The church members carried signs and shouted things such as "God hates fags" and "God hates you."
About 10 church members protested near Smyrna United Methodist Church and nearly 20 stood outside the National Guard Armory in Ashland City. Members have demonstrated at other soldier funerals across the nation. - these guys have long been disowned by the main Baptist churches and associations. And you thought regular Christians were extreme. These scum, DO NOT qualify as Christians....
The funerals were for Staff Sgt. Asbury Fred Hawn II, 35, in Smyrna and Spc. Gary Reese Jr., 22, in Ashland City. Both were members of the Tennessee National Guard.
Hundreds of Smyrna and Ashland City residents and families of other soldiers turned out at both sites to counter the message the Westboro Baptist members brought.
So many counterdemonstrators were gathered in Ashland City that police, sheriff's deputies and state troopers were brought in to control traffic and protect the protesters.
The church members held protesting permits, and counterprotesters in Smyrna turned their backs to Westboro Baptist members until time expired on the protest permits.
"If they were protesting the government, I might even join them," Danny Cotton, 56, said amid cries of "get out of our town" and "get out of our country."
"But for them to come during the worst time for this family - it's just wrong."

OK, here's what's bad, and it's gonna get worse.

New Orleans is a city of about 400,000 people. About 100,000 of them and many other tourists are stranded there.

New Orleans is about 12 feet below sea level. The storm surge could be about 20-25 feet high, and the city will more or less be flooded.

The Southeast tip of Louisiana and parts of Mississippi have refineries that accounts for about 25% of US domestic oil output. Prices are gonna go up, again........



Needless to say, prayers and thoughts to all of the citizens of New Orleans, Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi and any other soon to be hit areas.

Shut Up, Sheehan!

Now she's glorifying the Iraqi headcutters and their foreign goon squads. This woman needs to go to Iraq and see how many would truly agree with her. Better yet, let them give her a haircut from the neckup on Al Jazeera. See her change her tune, or maybe not.

She calls them freedom fighters. Sure, Sheehan, I bet the Nazis were just determined purists. And the Commies misunderstood socialists.

She said this wasn't about politics, and is about her son. WHAT A LIE. She's basically said for the Jews to leave Israel, US to leave the Middle East, and of course thinks the terrorists are the good guys.

Her grief is a sham. Her anger is the real thing.

Dorian Gray couldn't be a worse reflection of evil, than this tramp.

"Jesus wept...." said the Bible. No doubt, her son is weeping also.


I don't care whether you are for or against the war, this crap is low. Our wounded and maimed veterans are now going to be picketed. Yes, anti-war POS protestors are going to picket Walter Reed Army Medical Center in DC.

I take issue and extreme prejudice with this:

1. These wounded troops sustained their wounds so these ingrates can live and whine and contribute nothing to society. SCREW THESE SO CALLED COMPASSIONATE LIBERALS.

2. These protestors never served in a job, let alone their country. They have no place insulting men and women wounded in battle, when they'd be the first to jump ship and high tail it to Canada. BITE ME.

3. Real cowards is what these protestors are. Real big men protesting amputees and post traumatic stress syndrome sufferers. Take on a group of well and healthy troops and see how fast you get your asses kicked. GO TO F---ING HELL!

4. Veterans from past wars are there. I bet the old guys from WWII and Korea are pained seeing a generation of ingrates, and no doubt may just choose to die rather than see the miserable state this country is going towards. Thanks liberals, for euthanizing our vets. BASTARDS. Although, I imagine some of the more verile and older guys would crutch or walker their way over and kick some long-hair's ass. Go for it gramps! Knock them out!

Defend these asses all you want. I know certain trolls and posters will not have the guts address the sickening nature of the protestors. Instead, they will try to sidetrack and hijack the topic. Don't post here. I will erase your troop bashing crap right here.

BTK Killer Sentenced

BTK- Bind Torture and Kill, Killer was sentenced to 10 consecutive life sentences..... WTF? Doesn't Kansas have the death penalty? What stupid lawyer or judge made this possible?


At the least, the victims families got a chance to vent. I would have let them each have a bat, rusty knife, or claw hammer, and 5 minutes with him, but that's just me....

Oh wait, not just me.....


If this guy's prison stay is cushy, he'd better not expect an eternity in Hell to be any better. Bastard.

G'Day Mate?

Well, not if some snooty Australian politicians have their say....

Give me a frickin break.


Too Close for Comfort

Today, a US naval vessel, had rockets fired at it, while in the Jordanian Port of Aqaba....

No terrorism threat, huh Sheehan????

Al Qaeda doesn't exist, care to rephrase that Michael Moore?

Of course not.....


Pope Warns on Rise of Anti-Semitism

Well, well, pretty good for someone called a Nazi and a Jew baiter, huh liberals?

Here read, if you can....


Part of what he said:

With the shrill sound of a ram's horn and a choir chanting in Hebrew "peace be with you," Benedict became only the second pope to visit a synagogue, praying and remembering Holocaust victims.
"Today, sadly, we are witnessing the rise of new signs of anti-Semitism and various forms of a general hostility toward foreigners," he said.
Benedict said progress had been made, but "much more remains to be done. We must come to know one another much more and much better."
He did not elaborate on his warning except to call for more vigilance, receiving loud applause from the audience after his remarks.
Earlier, Benedict stood quietly with his hands clasped during a Hebrew prayer before a memorial to the 6 million Jews killed by Nazi Germany, and strode into the main hall as the choir sang, "Shalom alechem," or "peace be with you."
A shofar, or ram's horn, sounded as the pope sat down at the front. He then listened intently to the cantor's singing in the blue-domed Roonstrasse Synagogue, which was destroyed during the infamous Kristallnacht pogrom in 1938.

Chillingly, he said this during the aftermath of the Gaza Strip removal. This pope grew up during the height of Nazism and the Holocaust. It had an indelible effect. I wonder if any other Christians, and other self-ascribed humanists are upset over this next part of the Holocaust? The Nazis started with relocating the Jews. The Palestinians wanted that also. The Nazis did it, with Jewish help, ghetto police, KAPOS, and other traitors. The same is done, but at the order of the Israeli PM and his army. The next step, was "resettlement." And the German terms were more grave and more permanent....

Dare we wait and see what this round of anti-Semitism has in store for the Jews this time?


Unfrickinbelievable, well not really.....


Read the following:

The CIA's former Bin Laden desk chief revealed Thursday night that Clinton administration lawyers warned counterterrorism agents that Osama bin Laden had to be kept as comfortable as possible if they captured him during planned raids into Afghanistan."The lawyers were more concerned with bin Laden`s safety and his comfort than they were with the officers charged with capturing him," former Bin Laden desk chief Michael Scheuer told MSNBC's "Hardball.

And I bet Matthews was trying to backpeddal and help his lefty buddies. Hardball? More like Softballs or No-balls.

That would be like telling our Marines in WWII, capture them alive, no matter how many of you die doing it! Their lives are worth more than yours.... Same symptom of the yellow-bellied liberals....

Yeah his comfort was valuable, and we had to build an ergonomic chair to transport him in, if we caught him. Oh wait, Clinton never acted to catch him. Nice call, Bubba!

And there's more.....

"We had at least eight to 10 chances to capture or kill Osama bin Laden in 1998 and 1999. And the government on all occasions decided that the information was not good enough to act," he claimed.
Although sharply critical of President Bush's decision to go to war in Iraq , the CIA counterterrorism specialist put the blame for bin Laden's escape firmly on Mr. Clinton.
"In terms of which administration had more chances, Mr. Clinton`s administration had far more chances to kill Osama bin Laden than Mr. Bush has until this day," Scheuer said.

Well gee, I wonder who screwed up worse? Hmmmm. If you ask Jamie Gorelick, St. Cigar Stuffer Clinton never did any wrong. Ask Richard Ben Vereste who screwed up, and it was all George Bush.

Tell you what kids, re-read these documents, and then get back to us with the real truth.....

Otherwise, stop protecting the king of all f-up Presidents, yes worse than Carter, Bill frickin Clinton.

Cindy Needs to SHUT UP, NOW!

OK, Cindy Sheehan is now officially off the deep end...... as if she wasn't off the reservation already.....



CINDY UNLEASHED: 'THE BIGGEST TERRORIST IN THE WORLD IS GEORGE W. BUSH'Wed Aug 17 2005 21:51:56 ET"We are not waging a war on terror in this country. We’re waging a war of terror. The biggest terrorist in the world is George W. Bush!" So declared Cindy Sheehan earlier this year during a rally at San Francisco State University.

Sheehan, who is demanding a second meeting with Bush, stated: "We are waging a nuclear war in Iraq right now. That country is contaminated. It will be contaminated for practically eternity now."

Nuclear war, thank God her son isn't alive to see this guano. It'd kill him. GO TO HELL SHEEHAN!

Sheehan unleashed a foul-mouth tirade on April 27, 2005: "They’re a bunch of fucking hypocrites! And we need to, we just need to rise up..."

And kill, right Cindy? Kill, since you're sooo opposed to it. Why didn't the guy with the truck run her down also?

Sheehan said of the Bush administration. "If George Bush believes his rhetoric and his bullshit, that this is a war for freedom and democracy, that he is spreading freedom and democracy, does he think every person he kills makes Iraq more free?"

No Cindy, just the ones who are free. Saddam killed a million, you stupid whore....

"The whole world is damaged. Our humanity is damaged. If he thinks that it’s so important for Iraq to have a U.S.-imposed sense of freedom and democracy, then he needs to sign up his two little party-animal girls. They need to go to this war."

WHAT A BITCH! Now she wants others kids to get killed.

"We want our country back and, if we have to impeach everybody from George Bush down to the person who picks up dog shit in Washington, we will impeach all those people." END

Cindy Sheehan, tell you what, go off the deep end and take your liberals with you. And of you can enjoy HELL together....

OK, I am so dang tired of this crap, I could spit blood right now! Here it goes. This has been building up a while.... (cracking knuckles)

OK, first to the liberals who say they support our troops but then denegrate their actions and why they are there, F--- YOU! I am so sick of you talking out of both sides of your mouths or your faces, or whatever you mutants are. Either support them and back them up and keep your crap to yourself, or just say you don't support em and expect a lesser rant. At least you make it known early. Hiding and double-talk pisses me off to no end! Here's what General George Patton said on troops and leading:

Lead me, get behind me, or get out of my way!

Out of the way you liberal stinkbags, or don't be suprised by the tiremarks on your backs. Twits.

Second, I am sick of the so-called grieving families and other armchair experts on this war. If you grieve, grieve. Just stop doing it on camera. STOP adding you own anti-Semitic, anti-US diatribes to it. Your kid is gone, you're upset. Understandable. You go beyond upset and endanger the lives of your other kids and their comrades STILL IN IRAQ, not OK, and reprehensible. How many moms publically cursed FDR and Harry Truman for their kids death? Answer that one. How many were more ticked at their own country, than the aggressors and the enemy troops or terrorists that slaughtered the dear and departed? Where's your direction? Where's you sense of logic? It's been a year, and if your story changes, don't expect sympathy. And to Michael Berg, there is no forgiving for you, you parasite!

Third, to colleges and intellectuals and their wannabes. SHUT UP. Just shut up. You don't support the troops, what a shock. You hate the President, you're not alone, apparently, or so you say with all your little charts and factoids. However, how dare you flunk any student for being pro-American. How dare you deny tuition and GI Bill benefits to a veteran of this war. HOW FREAKING DARE YOU RUIN EDUCATION AND REVISE HISTORY! YOU ARE WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS COUNTRY, NOT US. So, kindly, retire, or shut up. Either way, I don't wanna hear from you anymore.

That's it for now.....

expect some editing later!

Texas Liberals Screw Vet on College Tuition

Back in 1944 or 1945, the US Government Created the GI Bill, and long ago before that or shortly after that, the State of College gave breaks on tuition to in-state residents (thank God). When a soldier fights, does their duty, and comes back and seeks education, they should get a fair shake or all of the rights becoming of the GI Bill, right?

Austin Community College, says, HELL NO!

Their Reason: W-w-well he s-s-served and lived out of the state for over a year.

Real Reason: He fought in Iraq, for the butt crack lint that denied his rightfull GI Bill expectations.

College is in Austin, WHAT A SHOCK!!!!


And of course, no comment or word from the college.

Governator Proposes Lifelong Tax on Sex Offenders


Well, thank God, Arnie came up with something substantial as governor of California....

The governor wants to prohibit registered sex offenders (search) from living near parks and schools. He also seeks to increase penalties for possession of child pornography, date rapists and using the Internet to lure minors for sex acts. "I'm sponsoring this legislation to give California the strictest laws and toughest penalties for the worst crimes," Schwarzenegger said at a news conference Tuesday. "We want to give greater protection for all Californians — especially our children — against sexual offenders."
If enacted, the legislation would give California some of the toughest laws in the nation for released sex offenders, its supporters said. Lawmakers in Florida recently adopted a similar lifetime monitoring requirement.

Well, Gov, that may help with the money problems you guys have. I hope the taxes aren't too substantial, if collected. If they get that much money, California has more to worry about than just earthquakes. Try all the sex offenders there.....

Go Arnie!

Wait, there's the usual opposition......

Schwarzenegger's proposal could face resistance in the Democratically controlled Legislature. Democrats in the state Senate rejected a bill in June by Sen. Jeff Denham (search), R-Merced, that would have required lifetime electronic tracking of convicted pedophiles.
The Legislature's annual session ends early next month, giving lawmakers little time to consider such a hefty bill, said Assemblyman Mark Leno, D-San Francisco, who chairs the public safety committee.
"I don't know how we digest a 52-page bill and give it the appropriate attention when we have as many things going on as we do," he said.

And if you try and defend this assinine move, you are worse than the pedophiles themselves. Do you have kids? Do you know kids, Mr. Leno? Or are you the typical perv that this bill is meant to punish?

Figures the Dumascraps are blocking protection.....

Leno said he had not had a chance to read the legislation but said placing all registered sex offenders under satellite surveillance for life would be enormously expensive. He estimated the governor's total package of proposed changes could cost as much as $500 million a year, a price he said included the satellite surveillance, additional jail time for some offenders and longer parole terms.
He also was concerned with placing limits on where registered sex offenders can live. Leno said he knew of someone who violated sex laws more than 30 years ago but who was never again in legal trouble. Nevertheless, that person could lose his apartment under the proposed ban on living near schools and parks, Leno said.
"Is this good public policy?" he said. "I think not."

Why the hell is this degenerate still in the State Legislature? Californians only answer this!

Expect the moonbats to defend the moron who loves his pedophiles.

There may be hope though.....

The legislation, formally titled the Sexual Predator Punishment and Control Act, would be amended into existing bills and is sponsored by state Sen. George Runner, R-Antelope Valley, and his wife, Assemblywoman Sharon Runner, also a Republican. George Runner said there are less than 100,000 parolees who would be required to wear a global positioning device (search) for the rest of their lives.
He said Democrats already have seen almost all the ideas included in the new legislation as separate bills that have been introduced previously. All of those have been rejected either this year or last, he said.
Supporters of Schwarzenegger's proposals decided to put all the changes into one bill and give the Legislature another chance. The issue will go to the ballot if they are unsuccessful this year, he said.
"We think the people of California deserve this," George Runner said. "Our thought was to give the Democrats one more shot and, if not, we've got it as an initiative."
He said the proposed ballot measure already is pending before the attorney general and most likely would be planned for the November 2006 ballot.
The Sexual Predator Punishment and Control Act is amended into Senate Bill 588 and Assembly Bill 231.

Mr. Runner, we wish you the best of luck. Lot of good that does you in California.... (spitting)

California, if you do not protect your kids, any future crimes or whatever you get, will fall on you!


Try and justify this crap, I dare you!

I don't care what right the Paleswineians think they have. Check out the PC nature the Israeli troops are using on THEIR OWN PEOPLE:;_ylt=Ar._tFbMC6dtg.BC0e9mjYMUvioA;_ylu=X3oDMTBiMW04NW9mBHNlYwMlJVRPUCUl

I dunno about you, but me, I'd be in cuffs along with them, if my home was up for being occupied by Johnny Come Lately and his bunch of Bomb-building buddies....

Heck, suprised more of the following, hasn't happened....

Israeli opens fire on Palestinians during settlement removals....,2933,165951,00.html

And of course, a protestor attempts suicide by burning themself.....

But expect our government to side with the idiots doing the dirty work.....;_ylt=AvjsVqZ03CMWoWS4hVK0TmIUvioA;_ylu=X3oDMTBiMW04NW9mBHNlYwMlJVRPUCUl

IRAQI PEOPLE: Pissed Off As Hell

And no, they're not pissed off at the troops and regular folks. They are pissed at their inept government. Proof that the timetable on leaving Iraq is fluid, to say the least.

Read this link:

Iraqi TV had the images of bus bombing that occurred earlier today, rather than be news as usual, like we did, even after 9/11, the Iraqis were allowed to vent and call in.

Wish we did that here.....

Oh wait, we do, it's Talk Radio, blogworld, and other areas......

Notice, that they are pissed at the terrorists. TER-ROR-ISTS!

Is "Blame Israel First" the Democrats' Message?

Contact: Matthew Brooks
Monday, August 15, 2005

“You get America out of Iraq and Israel out of Palestineand you'll stop the terrorism.”-- Cindy Sheehan, anti-war protestor in Crawford.
The front page of just about every newspaper this weekend noted the anti-war protest of Cindy Sheehan, the mother of a soldier who was killed in Iraq. The Democrats have jumped on board Ms. Sheehan’s protest – casting her and her message as heroic examples for the rest of the nation.
She has been heralded by Democrats such as Joe Trippi, campaign manager for Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean’s campaign for President, Michael Moore, and organizations such as,, True Majority, and Democracy for America.
While Democrats are busy making Cindy Sheehan their spokesman and avatar of their views, we see her as yet another example of how critics of Israel within the Democratic Party have taken control of the party's agenda.
If Cindy Sheehan’s ideas are what the Democrats have to offer, then more and more American Jews will continue to see that there is no place for them in the Democratic Party.
Take another look at the quote at the top of this letter. If only it were an aberration. Unfortunately, it represents only a tip of the iceberg of Ms. Sheehan’s world-view.
In a letter to Nightline, Ms. Sheehan wrote that the entire Iraq War was part of a neo-conservative plot to benefit Israel:
Am I emotional? Yes, my first born was murdered. Am I angry? Yes, he was killed for lies and for a PNAC Neo-Con agenda to benefit Israel. My son joined the Army to protect America, not Israel. Cindy Sheehan's letter And Ms. Sheehan, the voice of Democrat opposition to the war, reported what she would tell the President if she were to meet him (again):
You tell me the truth. You tell me that my son died for oil. You tell me that my son died to make your friends rich. You tell me my son died to spread the cancer of Pax Americana, imperialism in the Middle East. Is that where the Democrats are on the War in Iraq – and on US policy in the Middle East? The elimination of Saddam Hussein’s tyrannical rule is a victory for the oil companies and for American imperialism?
You know, as well as I, that Saddam Hussein launched scud missiles at Israel.
You know that he operated rape rooms and torture chambers.
You know that he launched chemical weapons at his own people.
You know that he housed terrorists as his guests in Iraq – terrorists such as Abu Nidal, who murdered Leon Klinghoffer on the Achille Lauro cruise ship.
You know that Saddam paid a bounty of $25,000 to the families of Palestinian homicide bombers.
You know that he was a threat to the stability of the entire region.
You also know that there were strong links between Saddam’s Iraq and Al Qaeda (for a new comprehensive summary of the latest evidence, check out

Munich Sellout Part II: Gaza handed to terrorists

1944- Jewish flunky is in dark coat, hat, pushes other Jews out of home, gets them onto the trains to Auschwitz. They ignore the cries and wailing, but get their fellow Jews to the Nazis, so they may live longer...... Those who do so are KAPOS.

2005- Jewish flunkies sell out majority of their own. Employ own troops to get them out of homes to Israel, but more or less a delayed execution at the hands of Hamas. They too ignore the wailing and crying of their fellow Jews. These are the reluctant IDF troops, but they too will be KAPOS.

What's the difference? Just hats and locations. These guys are doing the others dirty work for them.

"An appeaser is someone who feeds an alligator his own, and hopes he gets eaten, last."- Winston Churchill.

"If you get the Jews out of Gaza, the terrorism will stop!"- Cindy Sheehan, 2005.

"Peace in our time...."- Neville Chamberlain, 1938.

What the hell is going on?

First, Israeli PM Ariel Sharon is having the Israeli Army and police move Israeli settlers from territory it had been given since 1948. Now, they must move due to mounting pressure from the PLO, Egypt, Jordan, other Arab states, and shockingly The White House (once pro Israel) is pushing this initiative.


And now Sharon is sending in Israeli troops to yank Jewish settlers out of their homes. Wow, if this doesn't sound familiar, like World War II and the Nazis, what would be?

And of course, while some think this will quell terrorism, think again. Hamas chiefs said the war will continue regardless of the Jews being removed....

Good call Sharon! Good call Sheehan! Bush, and other so-called allies, again you never cease to disappoint, and this hurts worse. Didn't you once count yourselves as allies of the Israelis? Weren't you on the White House lawn and at 10 Downing echoing your support for the right of Israel's existence? Apparently no longer....

Were the 30 pieces of silver, or 30 million barrels of oil worth it, boys?

Washington Post chickens out of 9/11 Ceremonies

This from the so-called watchdogs of Democracy. Typical leftwing speed. 100% Pussy.


Here's their reasoning:

The Post has a code of conduct that says employees should avoid a conflict of interest or the appearance of a conflict of interest," said Rick Ehrmann, a Local representative for the Washington-Baltimore Newspaper Guild. "In this case The Post was sponsoring the
Pentagon's Freedom Walk, which ties the attack on Sept.... 11 to the Iraq war, and of course, The Post's reporters have proven ... that there is no connection between the two, that that link is false."
Ehrmann said, "The Post has made a very good decision in withdrawing from this event."

Nope, you did not prove a thing. All you did was parrot MoveOn's lines, you twit. Expect a subscription drop, you moron.....

Here's their code of conduct:

The Post backed out of the agreement after critics said the event, scheduled to take place four years after the attacks that hit New York and Washington and resulted in the crash of a commercial airliner over western Pennsylvania, would have a pro-war slant and that support of the event by the newspaper would compromise the Post's journalistic integrity.

And that stopped papers from reporting pro-war stuff in World War II, and Korea, how? Another ragsheet not worth letting my cats crap on.

And there's more, they don't dig a free concert hosted by a Bush supporter, Clint Black. Well, gee, Posties, I guess we oughta drag Clint Black out back and beat the crap out of him, huh? He's too patriotic, hisses these snakes. Here's their slant:

Critics of media support for the event also pointed to the free concert by Clint Black that is to take place at the end of the march route. Black's Web site,, features lyrics to his song entitled "I Raq and I Roll," including "Our troops take out the garbage/ for the good old U.S.A."

"If this is the person they're going to have representing American freedom, I'd say it's a political event," said Eric Hilton of the pop duo Thievery Corporation, who is part of a coalition that's organizing an anti-war protest concert on the Mall for later in September. Hilton said his concert will be political and he does not expect media sponsorship.

too bad Hilton is not related to Paris Hilton, she's actually smarter than this moron is.....

Also, Eric, there is media sponsorship.....

Read it and weep:

Other organizations scheduled to sponsor the Sept. 11 event included Stars and Stripes newspaper, Pentagon Federal Credit Union, Subway, Lockheed Martin, WTOP Radio Network, ABC/WJLA-TV Channel 7 and News Channel 8 and the Washington Convention & Tourism Corporation, according to the Freedom Walk Web site.

"As things stand right now we are committed to honoring our agreement to promote the event," said Stan Melton, director of creative services at WJLA TV and News Channel 8 in Washington.

However, this guy could waffle and drop a patriotic event like a hot potato.

"If we were to find out that it was meant to be a political event, we couldn't support it."

Yeah, like you guys weren't all backing Dan Rather for his political hack activities, but then decrying Fox for reporting differently than you. Bunch of vipers....

Presidential Reading List

Hardly the books usually read on a softie vacation. And one more thing, hardly the books, that a dullard or moron would dare to read:



Tuesday, Aug. 16, 2005 10:34 a.m. EDT
President Bush's Summer Reading List

Students who struggled with difficult summer reading assignments had company - President Bush took three intellectually challenging books with him for his vacation reading. Prominent among them was "Salt: A World History" by Mark Kurlansky, a chronicle of salt's incredible importance in world affairs in ways that oil occupies the world's attention today. According to the Los Angeles Times, the White House listed two other books on the president's summer reading schedule: "Alexander II: The Last Great Tsar" by Edvard Radzinsky and "The Great Influenza: The Epic Story of the Deadliest Plague in History" by John M. Barry.
All three books deal with history. "The president enjoys reading and learning about history," White House spokeswoman Dana Perino told the Times.
The Times took note of the striking analogies between salt and oil, explaining: "For most of recorded history, salt was synonymous with wealth. It established trade routes and cities. Adventurers searched for it. Merchants hoarded it. Governments taxed it. Nations went to war over it. More than four centuries ago, Queen Elizabeth I warned of England's growing dependence on foreign salt. France's salt tax, the gabelle, was one of the grievances that gave rise to the Revolution of 1789."
Salt lost its flavor as a precious commodity by the time of the 20th century, when refrigeration robbed it of value as a preservative and the world became aware that the stuff was everywhere.
"It seems very silly now, all of the struggles for salt," the book's author, Kurlansky, told the Times. "It's quite probable that some day, people will read about our struggles for oil and have the same reaction."
Kurlansky, a self-described "virulent" Bush critic, expressed surprise that the president is reading his work. "My first reaction was, 'Oh, he reads books?'" he told the Times, adding, "What I find fascinating, and it's probably a positive thing about the White House, is they don't seem to do any research about the writers when they pick the books."
The president's choice of Barry's book on the 1918-19 influenza pandemic that killed an astounding 21 million people worldwide, including 500,000 Americans, is not surprising. The author of "The Great Influenza: The Epic Story of the Deadliest Plague in History" has been frequently consulted by the administration on the potential for another similar pandemic striking the world.
Barry, another Bush critic, told the Times he has been investigating what steps public officials could take to lessen the severity of a flu pandemic. In his book Barry charges that the 1918 outbreak was worsened in America because of the government's attempts to minimize its significance, partly to avoid undermining efforts to win World War I.
"One lesson is to absolutely take it seriously," Barry told the Times. "I'm not a great fan of the Bush administration, but I think they are doing that. The Clinton administration I don't think paid much attention to it as a threat."
The third book the president took with him to the Crawford ranch, "Alexander II: The Last Great Tsar" by Edvard Radzinsky, is a history of the troubled reign of the tsar who ruled Russia from 1855 until he was assassinated in a terrorist bombing in 1881. Alexander was known as the "Czar Liberator," having freed 23 million Russian slaves in 1861, two years before Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation.
His reforms sparked violent reactions from both the left and the right, creating a leftist political movement that employed terrorism including a wave of killings and bombings.
"We, Russia, created the first great terrorist organization in the world," Radzinsky told the Times during a phone interview from Moscow. "We are the father of terror, not Muslims."
After surviving six attempts on his life, Alexander II was assassinated by a group of anarchists who tossed home-made bombs at him as he was riding in his carriage on the streets of St. Petersburg.
Radzinsky told the Times he assumed Bush had drawn the connection to the terrorists of today. "Very noble young people who dreamed about the future of Russia became killers, because blood destroys souls," Radzinsky said. "That for me is the most important lesson."
Peter Osnos, of the PublicAffairs publishing house in New York, told the Times that the books Bush took with him to Crawford represented a sophisticated reading list, even for an intellectually curious chief executive.
"It's a fair bet that George W. Bush is the only person in the entire United States who chose those three books to read on vacation," Osnos told the Times, adding that "There's nothing on that list that is a beach read, or even a busman's holiday."

Cost of Gas = Your First born child

Yeah, it will get that bad. Big oil says, "well, it's due to the market. Due to low output. blah blah blah...."

Be honest, you wanna pad your golden parachutes more, huh boys? Admit it, you're GOUGING US! Some of us drive four door sedans and we're feeling the pinch! Imagine how bad life is for a contractor who has to drive a duel truck all over creation!

Here's an article on why it's bad and why BIG OIL will make it worse:

I have a couple of solutions:

1. BUILD NEW REFINERIES! We haven't built a new petro refinery since the 1970s. A Generation has been born and grown up since the last ones were built. We need them, NOW!

2. TELL THE EPA TO TAKE A HIKE. Tell the EPA whackos, militant hippies, and other Leftwing whackjobs to shut up! Stop making it so hard to get the fuel out of the earth that WE NEED TO SURVIVE ON!

3. OPEC. Opec needs to just cease to exist. They are more or less the mafia and they are extorting everyone.

4. You put one here......

Japan on World War II: We're Sorry, sort of......

Well, if you wanna talk about split personality and revisionist history, look no further to two headlines from the Land of The Rising Sun.

First, Japanese PM, Junichiro Koizumi apologized for WWII Aggression, not getting too specific.;_ylt=Arkx3.ixWEqzLdJ.3uKRnqaUsLkA;_ylu=X3oDMTBiMW04NW9mBHNlYwMlJVRPUCUl

Second, in the Philippines, which Japan brutally occupied, the Japanese erected a kamikaze pilot statue where a US Air Base once stood.

Sorry? Over 10 Million Chinese slaughtered in Mainland China, since 1931-1945. Sorry. 25,000+ American and Philippino POWs killed on the Bataan Death March, out of 76,000 taken.
Over 100,000 ethnic Chinese slaughtered during The Fall of Singapore in 1942. Sorry, for Pearl Harbor.

How sorry were they really?

I guess we could respond and say, Hiroshima & Nagasaki, "Oops, man, sorry. We meant to hit um Tokyo!" British should also add, "oh so sorry about slaughtering you little Japanese chaps at Rangoon, but THAT'S FOR SINGAPORE YOU WANKERS!"

They say sorry and so do we.

Sorry we didn't make you feel a tad more remorse!

Ugliest Dog Wins

Bush's Neighbors Don't Like Protestors

Well, first let me say duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh! And second, it's CENTRAL TEXAS, you don't go to protest and rile up folks in Central Texas! It's like the twits in the ACLU who are suing in Georgia, or Alabama, or the South. Why? BIBLE BELT! Well, the neighbor said he was emptying a gun for dove hunting, but was already sick and tired of the protestors. His sympathy and curiosity wore away as traffic BACKED UP.



Mom's Protest Riles Gun-Toting Neighbor
By ANGELA K. BROWNThe Associated Press
Sunday, August 14, 2005; 10:57 PM

CRAWFORD, Texas -- Undaunted by counter rallies and even a neighbor's gunshot blasts into the air, a woman whose son died in Iraq said Sunday that she will continue her anti-war demonstration near President Bush's ranch for three more weeks.
"We can't give up, no matter hard it gets," said Cindy Sheehan of Vacaville, Calif. She started the protest Aug. 6 in memory of her 24-year-old son Casey, an Army specialist killed in Iraq last year.
Her makeshift campsite along the road leading to the Western White House has grown to more than 100, and hundreds more have stopped by for a few hours to show their support. Sheehan says she won't leave "Camp Casey" until Bush meets with her and other grieving families or until his monthlong ranch visit ends.
More than 350 war protesters rallied at the site Saturday afternoon, hours after some 250 Bush supporters waved American flags in a counter rally across the street, holding signs that said Sheehan was unpatriotic and was hurting troop morale.
While about 60 in Sheehan's group held a religious service Sunday morning, a nearby landowner, Larry Mattlage, fired his shotgun twice into the air. Sheriff's deputies and Secret Service agents rushed to his house but did not arrest him.
"I ain't threatening nobody, and I ain't pointing a gun at nobody," Mattlage said. "This is Texas."
Mattlage said he was initially sympathetic toward the demonstrators, but that they have blocked roads in the area and caused traffic problems. He said he fired his gun in preparation for the dove-hunting season, but when asked if he had another motive, he said, "Figure it out for yourself."
Sheriff's deputies have kept a presence at the demonstrators' site, and more than a dozen law enforcement cars flanked the edge of the camp Saturday to keep them and the pro-Bush rally separated. A few from each side got into heated verbal exchanges, but no one was arrested.
Sheehan, 48, said she was not concerned with her own safety but that she has told others to be aware that "this could get physical, even though we are peaceful."
"I think we knew of the risks when we came down here," she said. "I'm surprised we haven't had more of that since we're in Bush country."
Sheehan, who met with two top Bush administration officials on her first day of the protest, said some of her supporters have left the campsite but that others keep arriving from around the country.
Bush has said he sympathizes with Sheehan but has not said if he will meet with her.
Sherry Bohlen of Scottsdale, Ariz., drove with two friends to Crawford last week but didn't leave Sunday as planned.
"This is history in the making, and it's hard to walk away from that," said Bohlen, whose son Thor has been in Iraq for a month.

Sheehan: Israel Leave Palestine!

Sheehan is now aligning herself with the terrorists and their allies.....

Sheehan has gone beyond anger, into the abyss, and wants to take others with her.

If this doesn't show her true colors, what will?



XXXXX DRUDGE REPORT XXXXX AUG 14, 2005 08:02:39 ET XXXXX BUSH PROTESTING MOM CALLS FOR 'ISRAEL OUT OF PALESTINE'; VOWS NOT TO PAY TAXESAnti-war protestor Cindy Sheehan, whose soldier son Casey was killed in Iraq, is calling for Bush's "impeachment," and for Israel to get out of Palestine! "You get America out of Iraq and Israel out of Palestine and you'll stop the terrorism," Sheehan declares.

Sheehan, who is asking for a second meeting with President Bush, says defiantly: "My son was killed in 2004. I am not paying my taxes for 2004. You killed my son, George Bush, and I don't owe you a give my son back and I'll pay my taxes. Come after me (for back taxes) and we'll put this war on trial."

"And now I'm going to use another 'I' word - impeachment - because we cannot have these people pardoned. They need to be tried on war crimes and go to jail." The 48-year-old California mom remains tented up in a ditch along the one-lane road that leads to Bush's Texas ranch. As her protest entered its second week, hundreds of people with conflicting opinions about the war in Iraq descended on the area.

TIME mag reports in new editions on Monday: Sheehan gets support from her surviving son, Andy, in principle, but he recently sent her a long e-mail imploring her, "to come home because you need to support us at home." Developing...

Not too suprising, read.....



Texas Becomes a Majority-Minority State
Email this StoryAug 11, 7:50 AM (ET)By ALICIA A. CALDWELL

EL PASO, Texas (AP) - Texas has become the fourth state to have a non-white majority population, the U.S. Census Bureau said Thursday, a trend driven by a surging number of Hispanics moving to the state.
According to the population estimates based on the 2000 Census, about 50.2 percent of Texans are now minorities. In the 2000 Census, minorities made up about 47 percent of the population in the second-largest state.
Texas joins California, New Mexico and Hawaii as states with majority-minority populations - with Hispanics the largest group in every state but Hawaii, where it is Asian-Americans.
Five other states - Maryland, Mississippi, Georgia, New York and Arizona - aren't far behind, with about 40 percent minorities.
Public policy analysts said these states and the country as a whole need to bring minority education and professional achievement to the levels of whites. Otherwise, these areas risk becoming poorer and less competitive.
William Frey, a demographer at the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C., said lawmakers need to start with immigration reform, while striving to bring minorities' education and salary levels in line with Anglos.
"Immigration is good for the United States ... it's important for us to keep our doors open, but we need to keep an eye on the people coming in," Frey said. "While initially it will be a state problem, eventually it will be a national issue, and education is the best way to deal with it."
Complications from the cultural shift aren't likely to be exclusive to states that already have majority-minority populations, Frey said.
Nevada, for instance, has seen a massive influx of minorities in the last 15 years, reducing the percentage of Anglos since the 1990s from nearly 80 percent to about 60 percent. Such a rapid shift is likely to cause growing pains that include trying to balance the needs of a bigger and younger minority community with an aging Anglo community, Frey said.
"That's the kind of state that is going to have to deal with quick transition," Frey said.
Though some areas may never see this shift, the country as a whole is expected to continue the trend first noticed more than a decade ago.
The nation should be more than half minorities by 2050, said Steve Murdock, a demographer at the University of Texas at San Antonio.
"If you look in the 1990s, in every one of the 50 states, non-Anglo Hispanic populations grew faster than Anglo populations," Murdock said. "It's a very pervasive pattern."

Bush says Leaving Iraq a Bad Signal


Bush: Leaving Iraq Would Be a Bad Signal
Aug 11, 6:14 PM (ET)By NEDRA PICKLER

CRAWFORD, Texas (AP) - President Bush said Thursday he sympathizes with war protesters like the mother camped outside his Texas ranch demanding answers for her solider-son's death, but he said he believes it would be a mistake to bring U.S. troops home now.
Bush said he had "heard the voices of those saying, 'Pull out now.'" And he said, "I've thought about their cry and their sincere desire to reduce the loss of life by pulling our troops out. I just strongly disagree."
"Pulling the troops out would send a terrible signal to the enemy," the president told reporters between meetings with his military and foreign affairs advisers.
Outside his sprawling ranch, California mother Cindy Sheehan sat on the road with a growing group of war protesters who have pitched tents in shallow ditches. Sheehan's son, Casey, was killed five days after he arrived in Iraq last year at age 24.

Sheehan began her standoff on Saturday, declaring she would stay for the entire month that Bush plans to stay in Texas if he won't meet with her. Since then, dozens of other activists have traveled from across the country to join her, including at least three other parents who have lost children in the war.
"The president says he feels compassion for me, but the best way to show that compassion is by meeting with me and the other mothers and families who are here," Sheehan said. "All we're asking is that he sacrifice an hour out of his five-week vacation to talk to us, before the next mother loses her son in Iraq."
The protesters put a human face on Americans' increasing opposition to Bush's handling of the war. An AP-Ipsos poll early this month showed just 38 percent of respondents approved of his handling of Iraq. More than 1,840 members of the U.S. military have died since the beginning of the war in March 2003
"I sympathize with Mrs. Sheehan," Bush said. "She feels strongly about her position. She has every right in the world to say what she believes. This is America. She has a right to her position. And I've thought long and hard about her position. I've heard her position from others, which is, 'Get out of Iraq now.'"
"And it would be a mistake for the security of this country and the ability to lay the foundations for peace in the long run if we were to do so," the president said.

The White House put out an accounting of all the meetings that Bush has had with families of the war dead - 900 relatives of 272 people who have died in Iraq and Afghanistan. Sheehan met the president in June 2004 but said she deserves another visit since there have been so many revelations about faulty pre-war intelligence since then.
Bush said reports that the Pentagon may increase or decrease troop levels in Iraq next year are simply "speculation and rumors." He noted, though, that the United States had sent more soldiers to Iraq and Afghanistan before elections and was considering doing so again before another round of Iraqi elections in December.
Gen. George Casey, the top commander in Iraq, has said repeatedly that "fairly substantial" reductions are expected after the election if the political process stays on track, if the insurgency does not expand and if the training of Iraqi security forces proceeds as planned.
Bush said he would make any decision to remove troops based on recommendations by Casey, who gave a briefing by videolink during the president's ranch meeting with advisers.
"My position has been clear, and therefore, the position of this government is clear," Bush said. "Obviously, the conditions on the ground depend upon our capacity to bring troops home."

Bush said Casey reported that Iraqi security units were becoming more capable, although he acknowledged they were not ready to work alone without support from U.S. forces. He described the Iraqis' progress as improving from "raw recruit" to "plenty capable."
"I know it's hard for some Americans to see that progress," Bush said. "But we are making progress."
Bush reiterated that the United States sees no reason that an Iraqi committee working to draft a new national constitution cannot finish its work by a Monday deadline.
On another Mideast topic, Bush indicated that the new Iranian president will receive a U.S. visa to attend an annual United Nations gathering next month.
Bush said U.S. investigators still have not yet determined what role Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad may have played in the 1979 takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran. Six former hostages have identified Ahmadinejad as one of their captors.

Even so, Bush said, the United States has separate obligations to other countries as the host nation for the United Nations, which is headquartered in New York.
"We have an agreement with the United Nations to allow people to come to meet, and I suspect he will be here to meet at the United Nations," Bush said.
As host, the United States is obligated under U.N. rules to approve visas to foreign leaders irrespective of political considerations.
Bush said he welcomed the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency's warning to Iran about the consequences of its nuclear ambitions.
The International Atomic Energy Agency's 35-nation board of directors expressed "serious concern" Thursday over Iran's resumption of nuclear activities that could lead to an atomic bomb.
"That's a positive first step," Bush said.

Break's Over, It's Business As Usual Now.

Well, if you thought the Cindy Sheehan bit got old, here's an interesting wrinkle in this tapestry. Sheehan's own family is countering her vigil and protest against the war in Iraq. REFRESHER: Cindy Sheehan, lost 24 year old son Casey in Iraq in 2004. This year, 2005, she has decided to go on the warpath.


FAMILY OF FALLEN SOLDIER PLEADS: PLEASE STOP, CINDY!Thu Aug 11 2005 12:56:21 ETThe family of American soldier Casey Sheehan, who was killed in Iraq on April 4, 2004, has broken its silence and spoken out against his mother Cindy Sheehan's anti-war vigil against George Bush held outside the president's Crawford, Texas ranch.

The following email was received by the DRUDGE REPORT from Casey's aunt and godmother:

Our family has been so distressed by the recent activities of Cindy we are breaking our silence and we have collectively written a statement for release. Feel free to distribute it as you wish. Thanks Ð Cherie In response to questions regarding the Cindy Sheehan/Crawford Texas issue: Sheehan Family Statement: The Sheehan Family lost our beloved Casey in the Iraq War and we have been silently, respectfully grieving. We do not agree with the political motivations and publicity tactics of Cindy Sheehan. She now appears to be promoting her own personal agenda and notoriety at the the expense of her son's good name and reputation. The rest of the Sheehan Family supports the troops, our country, and our President, silently, with prayer and respect.

Sincerely, Casey Sheehan's grandparents, aunts, uncles and numerous cousins.



Expect the fur to fly on this one. Only a matter of time, before someone would speak out against this. Talk Radio doesn't need to, since her own family feels she is doing her son's legacy and his comrades a disservice.

How about yours?


OK, bloggers and bloggies, it's time to take a break, for today at least. Recently the political rhetoric and seething rage and emotions are hitting a high crest, and at any moment the wave will crash. Today, let's keep political crap out of the view. Let's just have a day to rest. After all, God took a day off after 6 days of Creation (which is up to debate and may be explained via various theories and scientific principles). Let's take off. I for one, am sick and tired of all the political arguing. I'm not budging in my positions, as many of your are dug in. So, we are at a standoff, or are we at an understanding? Today, let's leave the politics to the paid talking heads. Also, kind of tired from going to the dentist and getting a filling, so I am drained.....

Next, we will have an open thread or some fun topics.....

Maureen Dowd: The Bitch is Back

Why No Tea and Sympathy?

W. can't get no satisfaction on Iraq.
There's an angry mother of a dead soldier camping outside his Crawford ranch, demanding to see a president who prefers his sympathy to be carefully choreographed.

This is the same mom who changed her story from a year ago, Maureen, care to comment how that happened?

A new CNN-USA Today-Gallup poll shows that a majority of Americans now think that going to war was a mistake and that the war has made the U.S. more vulnerable to terrorism. So fighting them there means it's more likely we'll have to fight them here?

Polls taken from where, NewYork? The Left Coast? Those aren't a real representation of the cross-section of Americans, Maureen....

Donald Rumsfeld acknowledged yesterday that sophisticated bombs were streaming over the border from Iran to Iraq.
And the Rolling Stones have taken a rare break from sex odes to record an antiwar song called "Sweet Neo Con," chiding Condi Rice and Mr. Bush. "You call yourself a Christian; I call you a hypocrite," Mick Jagger sings.

We know who's gonna be a Stones groupie at their next concert. Maureen, please keep your top on. Saggage is not a pretty sight. Ughhhh. Dowd's funny. She called Christians a bunch of hypocrites for voting GOP, but herself slams other Christians and expects them to be forgiving of her. I think she ought to be more worried how God will say about slandering his Believers, hypocrites or not....

The N.F.L. put out a press release on Monday announcing that it's teaming up with the Stones and ABC to promote "Monday Night Football." The flag-waving N.F.L. could still back out if there's pressure, but the mood seems to have shifted since Madonna chickened out of showing an antiwar music video in 2003. The White House used to be able to tamp down criticism by saying it hurt our troops, but more people are asking the White House to explain how it plans to stop our troops from getting hurt.

NFL is about money. And they may shy away if enough Americans get SICK of people and artists getting preachy and taking up airtime when they prefer to see goal kicks, touchdowns, interceptions, and so forth. Shut up and sing, and shut up and play!

Cindy Sheehan, a 48-year-old Californian with a knack for P.R., says she will camp out in the dusty heat near the ranch until she gets to tell Mr. Bush face to face that he must pull all U.S. troops out of Iraq. Her son, Casey, a 24-year-old Army specialist, was killed in a Sadr City ambush last year.

The mom strikes again.....Pulling a Max Cleland.

The president met with her family two months after Casey's death. Capturing W.'s awkwardness in traversing the line between somber and joking, and his love of generic labels, Ms. Sheehan said that W. had referred to her as "Mom" throughout the meeting, and given her the sense that he did not know who her son was.

Eesh, Dowd, is not just humoring this venomous attempt at slander, she's now giving the person ammo. Why aren't reporters reporting the differences between last year's Sheehan and this year's? Why not ask this question: Why the sudden and noticable change? Answer: It would expose their agenda. As if ackward reporting doesn't.

The Bush team tried to discredit "Mom" by pointing reporters to an old article in which she sounded kinder to W. If only her husband were an undercover C.I.A. operative, the Bushies could out him. But even if they send out a squad of Swift Boat Moms for Truth, there will be a countering Falluja Moms for Truth.

FYI Maureen, Joe Wilson was a liar, and that investigation is deader than disco.

It's amazing that the White House does not have the elementary shrewdness to have Mr. Bush simply walk down the driveway and hear the woman out, or invite her in for a cup of tea.

Gee Maureen, do think maybe they're busy handling the Free World also?

But W., who has spent nearly 20 percent of his presidency at his ranch, is burrowed into his five-week vacation and two-hour daily workouts. He may be in great shape, but Iraq sure isn't.

Maureen, we haven't seen you hit the gym recently. Also, I don't call meeting with world leaders and holding PDRs and security conferences at Crawford a "vacation." That 20 percent is heavily laden with Michael Moore crap, may I suggest cutting the crap, Maureen? Wait, that may cut your WHOLE PREMISE....

It's hard to think of another president who lived in such meta-insulation. His rigidly controlled environment allows no chance encounters with anyone who disagrees. He never has to defend himself to anyone, and that is cognitively injurious. He's a populist who never meets people - an ordinary guy who clears brush, and brush is the only thing he talks to. Mr. Bush hails Texas as a place where he can return to his roots. But is he mixing it up there with anyone besides Vulcans, Pioneers and Rangers?
W.'s idea of consolation was to dispatch Stephen Hadley, the national security adviser, to talk to Ms. Sheehan, underscoring the inhumane humanitarianism of his foreign policy. Mr. Hadley is just a suit, one of the hard-line Unsweet Neo Cons who helped hype America into this war.
It's getting harder for the president to hide from the human consequences of his actions and to control human sentiment about the war by pulling a curtain over the 1,835 troops killed in Iraq; the more than 13,000 wounded, many shorn of limbs; and the number of slain Iraqi civilians - perhaps 25,000, or perhaps double or triple that. More people with impeccable credentials are coming forward to serve as a countervailing moral authority to challenge Mr. Bush.
Paul Hackett, a Marine major who served in Iraq and criticized the president on his conduct of the war, narrowly lost last week when he ran for Congress as a Democrat in a Republican stronghold in Cincinnati. Newt Gingrich warned that the race should "serve as a wake-up call to Republicans" about 2006.
Selectively humane, Mr. Bush justified his Iraq war by stressing the 9/11 losses. He emphasized the humanity of the Iraqis who desire freedom when his W.M.D. rationale vaporized.
But his humanitarianism will remain inhumane as long as he fails to understand that the moral authority of parents who bury children killed in Iraq is absolute.

Selectively humane? Being humane is something this witch would never know. She talks a great game, but I have yet to see her do anything better. Maureen Dowd, take the plank from your own eye, before inspecting the spec in George's. Oh wait, you don't listen to Christians. Well, how about this, what goes around comes around. Karma is a bitch, and apparently so art thou...


Please e-mail Maureen Dowd.


Coldplay Singer Chris Martin snubs Prime Minister Tony Blair

Ego the size of Picadilly Circus me thinks. What say you, Chris Martin?


Another whackjob musician on the political warpath and his own high horse.

Martin is said to have not wanted be photographed or be seen with Blair, since he is against Blair's war in Iraq and how he handles other policies. Is Martin another terrorist coddler?

Hell Pizza: Even Bush is TOO BAD for Hell

Nice tolerance the New Zealanders are showing.

The no-talent hacks had such slogans as:

Even Hell Has its Standards.

Hell: Too good for some Evil Bastards.

And of course, they had the slogans next to a demonized pic of President Bush. Wow! That's not childish or anything. Well, since they are judging and saying Bush is going to hell, couldn't we say those Kiwi Bastards are going to hell also? Since they're soooo knowledgable.

Yeah, once exec said, he knew it would cause a bit of a stir. Well, it did. So, prepare for a hellstorm, jerkwad.


Hotel Fined for Being "Too Patriotic"

Well, the liberals are working overtime to undermine our troops and country. Now, they want business that exhibit any patriotism to be fined. Nice free speech and free business they are for (coughing, BULLCRAP!)

Hillary's Spin Doctors trying to Re-Write History

If you did not recall your history, you'd have forgot that Bill Clinton was impeached by The House. Almost, by the Senate. And was the first ELECTED President to be impeached in either house of Congress. Although, that's not what The NY Daily News writes:

They are in overdrive to protect their benefactor, Hillary Clinton. The NY Daily News was skeptical of Jeanine Pirro as a threat to Clinton. However, Newsies, if Pirro is no threat, why are you lying and re-writing history? Why are you dredging up crap that her hubby did, that Clinton LIED to America for doing similiary in nature? Why are you derailing her, if Pirro won't register a blip?

Media makes a real good accomplice, huh?

Clinton wasn't impeached? That's like saying Michael Jackson didn't dangle a kid from a balcony. WE SAW BOTH ON TV!

Shuttle Lands Safely

Well, Thank God for the guidance and safety over our astronauts......

Hillary: Start Packing Your Carpetbags

I dunno what chance of winning this lady may have, but Jeanine Pirro will at least take out a few chunks of the Clinton fortress....

High-Profile Prosecutor to Run Against Clinton

Encouraged by New York Republican leaders and some White House officials, Jeanine F. Pirro, the charismatic Westchester County district attorney, announced yesterday that she would challenge Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton next year, and immediately accused Mrs. Clinton of using her post as a steppingstone to the presidency.
Ms. Pirro, a political moderate who supports abortion rights, gay rights and the death penalty, is seen by many Republicans in New York and Washington as their best hope of pulling off a big upset in 2006 by defeating Mrs. Clinton.
More realistically, Republicans say that Ms. Pirro's dogged style, sharp wit and telegenic presence will help them raise tens of millions of dollars and at least bruise Mrs. Clinton in advance of her possible 2008 presidential run.
In an interview, Ms. Pirro made it clear that she would elevate the Senate race into a national political event, as she criticized Mrs. Clinton's rumored presidential ambitions as much as her Senate record for the last four and a half years.
"Hillary Clinton is not running to serve the people of New York," Ms. Pirro said. "We are just a way station in her run for the presidency."
She added: "I think voters will choose the only woman who really wants the job. My full-time is a whole lot better than her part-time."
The prospect of a sharp-elbowed, well-financed challenger like Ms. Pirro, 54, is sure to intensify the national interest in the Senate race in New York, which is being closely watched by Republicans as a test of Mrs. Clinton's views and skills since her first run for the post in 2000.
Officials at the White House and the Republican National Committee have enthusiastically discussed the Senate contest with Ms. Pirro, who also met in Washington last week with Senator Elizabeth Dole, of North Carolina, the chairwoman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee. Ken Mehlman, the Republican National Committee's chairman, congratulated Ms. Pirro yesterday on entering the race, aides to both of them said.
Ms. Pirro also spoke with New York State party leaders. They made it clear to her campaign that they would help her raise $30 million.
"For national Republicans, this 2006 race is really about the presidency, but I don't think that's the case for the people of New York," said Celinda Lake, a Democratic pollster. "Clinton is so popular that Pirro can't say, 'She hasn't done a great job for New York.' The only thing you can say is, 'She can't continue doing a great job forever.' Talking about 2008 will help with fund-raising, but it's a pretty weak political argument."
Tracey Schmitt, press secretary for the Republican National Committee, said that the 2006 race would be an important opportunity to judge if Mrs. Clinton has changed her positions or tone on central issues with an eye toward 2008, and that a bold Republican challenger would hold her accountable.
"It's become very clear in the last few months that Senator Clinton is someone who is more concerned with the state of her national standing than the state of New York," Ms. Schmitt said. "It's obvious that her efforts to reposition herself as a centrist are the result of her political ambitions rather than principle."
While Ms. Pirro has been contemplating the race for months, a confluence of forces recently helped steer her toward a Senate bid and away from other races she was considering for 2006.
After Gov. George E. Pataki announced on July 27 that he would not seek a fourth term, several Republican donors and political allies urged Ms. Pirro to consider running to succeed him, according to party officials aware of the conversations. Not wanting to seem stubborn, Ms. Pirro gave it some thought, and even questioned the state party chairman, Stephen J. Minarik III, about such a bid, the officials said. By late last week, however, Ms. Pirro was again speaking to associates with renewed interest about the office that she seemed best positioned to win, state attorney general.
Yet through last week, state party officials say, Mr. Pataki and other Republicans told her that a challenge to Mrs. Clinton could reap the most rewards. If Ms. Pirro beat the current odds and won, she would become a national celebrity as a giant killer. Even in defeat, Ms. Pirro has told friends, her resulting fame could pave the way for another statewide office, or, perhaps, give her a greater role on television, where she has been a legal analyst for Fox News.
"Jeanine speculated with me last week about perhaps running for governor, but she never announced it," said Mr. Minarik, an early supporter of Ms. Pirro as a Senate candidate. "I told her that I thought she would be a great statewide candidate, but especially for Senate."
Ms. Pirro also settled on the Senate race only after concluding that the legal problems of her husband, Albert J. Pirro Jr., would not derail her; he was convicted of income tax fraud in 2000 and spent 11 months in prison in a case that involved tax returns that Ms. Pirro signed. Democrats have suggested that the Pirros' finances could be fair game, raising the possibility that the two candidates' husbands could become proxy issues in the political warfare. Yet Ms. Pirro's advisers also believe that in a Senate race, the candidates' husband issues could cancel each other out.
Republicans in Washington and New York have made it clear that they were confident they could help raise the $30 million or more to battle Mrs. Clinton, since there is still enough antipathy nationally toward the former first lady to make fund-raising "a walk in the park," as one Pirro adviser put it yesterday. Ms. Pirro's paid consultants, who stand to earn significant fees from a Senate bid, were also widely seen as supporting her entry into that race, Republican Party officials said, since they felt it was the one she originally wanted to join, instead of the races for attorney general or governor.
In three terms as district attorney, Ms. Pirro has built a national reputation as a hard-charging prosecutor of sex crimes and domestic violence cases and a proponent of Internet stings targeting suspected child molesters. Her articulate manner and appearance (she once made People magazine's most-beautiful list) have made her a frequent television commentator on Fox and other networks.
Yet she has some political obstacles to face in New York. In 2001, for instance, Ms. Pirro told an abortion rights group that she opposed a legislative ban on so-called partial-birth abortions - a position that could cost her crucial support from the state Conservative Party, said its chairman, Michael R. Long.
"Partial-birth abortion and gay marriage are deal breakers for us," Mr. Long said yesterday. "And without us, I don't think she can win for the Senate. No Republican has won statewide without our endorsement since 1974."
Three more conservative Republicans are also seeking to challenge Mrs. Clinton, including Edward F. Cox, a lawyer and son-in-law of President Richard M. Nixon, who has built the fullest political operation to date. Mr. Long praised Mr. Cox and the two others as sufficiently conservative on abortion and taxes. White House officials said yesterday that they were publicly neutral on the Republican primary race.
Ms. Pirro repeatedly declined yesterday to outline her positions on abortion, gay rights, Social Security private accounts and stem-cell research. When asked if she considered herself a Bush Republican, she declined to embrace that description, too.
"I'm going to be Jeanine Pirro - I'm not someone you can categorize as this, that or the other thing," she said.
Ms. Pirro also declined to say how she would fight back if her husband were attacked. In the past, Ms. Pirro has occasionally lost her cool defending herself or her husband, slapping her desk or shouting, and profanity is no stranger to her lexicon. Mr. Pirro's involvement in the race is not clear: he is a wealthy Republican donor, yet he is not identified in his wife's biography and on the more than 100 photos on her new campaign Web site (
"There's only one person's name who is going to be on the ballot, and that's Jeanine Pirro," she said.
While advisers to Mrs. Clinton were keenly awaiting word about Ms. Pirro's intentions, their official reaction was fairly muted yesterday, saying the senator would continue to focus on working for New Yorkers.
Mrs. Clinton remains the favorite to win and is widely liked in New York, while Ms. Pirro has seen her popularity decline in Westchester County. A Quinnipiac University poll last Wednesday had Mrs. Clinton leading Ms. Pirro by 63 percent to 29 percent. Yet the same poll also found that 60 percent of voters say Mrs. Clinton should pledge to serve her full six-year term if re-elected.
Hours after Ms. Pirro entered the race, state Republicans appeared to be rallying around her. Yesterday, Mr. Pataki called Ms. Pirro "an outstanding candidate," and he has told associates that she is the strongest kind of Republican to run against Mrs. Clinton - an ethnic Catholic woman from the suburbs who is moderate on social issues and espouses a hard-edged, zero-tolerance line on law enforcement and security issues. (Ms. Pirro is of Lebanese descent.)
A Clinton-Pirro race is one that New York Republicans have sought for months. In June, 46 of the 62 Republican county leaders signed a letter urging Ms. Pirro to challenge Mrs. Clinton. But Mr. Minarik emphasized yesterday that he was not sure if all 46 would endorse Ms. Pirro, and at least two Republican chairmen said they were seriously evaluating Mr. Cox. The state party hopes to settle on a Republican challenger by later this year to avoid convention and primary battles next summer.
