Zarqawi is dead, and the dimmicrats want us to cut and run now?

There's been a lot of talking heads on tv lately saying it's time to reduce troop levels in Iraq to prepare for our departure from there. Most if not all of them, referrence the loss of life and how we shouldn't be there etc. This all reminds me of a time a sitting US President listen to the polls and decided to cut our losses instead of making the tougher choice. Sure we all remember "Black Hawk Down" but there's more to the tale, lets look at Slick Willy Clinton and Somalia. Let's go in the way back machine and take a look at a timeline of events.

So while we are celebrating the death of a brutally sadistic terrorist in Iraq, let us not fall prey to the temptation to "cut and run" as so many dimmicrats will want. Now the region, and the rest of the world, are waiting to see what position the new government is going to take there on terrorism. Remember no attacks occured on US soil UNTIL Osama and his group of demons had a country to base themselves out of. Somalia is our lesson on why we can't cut and run from Iraq, I hope that when W is talking to his old man that they talk about these events.
 

Wind energy

So today I was catching up on some news and viewpoints over at hotair.com and while reading some of the dimmycrat responses to Ann Coulter and Zarqawi, I thought to myself, damn the left should be called "hot air"! Then of course I thought, "if only we could harness the wind outta the mouths of the left for good, we wouldn't need oil!". This made me go research some alternative energy info and I, in (dis)honor of Ted "can't drive 55" Kennedy started with wind power and came across this.

Report: Enough wind offshore to electrify America.

Seems that according to recent study we could generate up to 900,000 megawatts of electricity from offshore wind plants. Now don't get me wrong, I not an eco-nut, nor do I prescribe to Al "created the internet" Gore's viewpoints on global warming. However, recently I have been taking more of an interest in alternative energy, even going so far as to invest in a little company called Distributed Energy to put my money where my mouth is as well as make a little money. Nor am I proposing government mandates on utility companies to get a certain % of their energy from "alternative resources". I believe in free market capitilism and minimal govt interference. However I think that it's time we start looking at more things like this since technology and $70.00+ a barrell oil has leveled the playing field some. I also factor in that with events in the middle east and South America we need to get more energy on our own and less from despots and crackpots.
So, having said all the above I was looking into this wind energy stuff and it looks like there are some great opportunites off the New England coast, specifically up in Cape Cod. There was some press on this that Teddy Kennedy was trying to kill this plan for awhile but even he backed down (though no reports on whether he will sit by the wind farms and increase the output simply by doing his 2nd best thing, orating. [we all know driving is his best thing]). I think that projects like this one are damn good things with oil being so high and it's flow unsteady. Go "google" wind power and look things up, alternative energy isn't just something that tree hugging, tied died, sandal wearing hippies advocate anymore. Hell, if you see a good company that's making a profit on it, invest in it and make some money yourself.

Zarqawi's last message for all

Click the link, if it doesn't work go here. http://www.typepad.com/t/trackback/5054177
Achmed and Akbar have called, they are very proud and agree 100%
 

Guest audio bloggers

Occasionally 2 friends of mine will call in and post an audio blog. They are pretty busy guys being the only employees at a quiki mart they own. There is Achmed (he's the older guy who owns the business) and then there is Akbar (the shifty younger brother). They came here about 10 years ago and are citizens and speak the language as well as most dummycrats. Don't blame me for their posts but feel free to comment and I can reply with their comments back.

Shock and Awe-counter terrorism style

****update*****
40 more raids on the Zarqawi network, looks like that treasure trove of info is really being used!


Ok, so unless you've been living under a rock you know that our boys introduced al-Zarqawi the other day to the business end of 2 500lb bombs. Oh snap, I forgot, al-Zawahri has been living under a rock and sent out this statement praising Zarqi. Well what also is going on is the counter-terrorism version of shock and awe. Here's some other raids etc going on that you might not know about if you drink from the fountain of MSM.


These are just the things out there in the news now. You can darn well bet that there are other things cooking that won't be talked about until they are done. All in all some very real and positive movement in Iraq that goes in hand with their completing the appointments of the final minister positions. Of course some of the more unhinged dimmicrats and others out there in the press are already trying to lessen the impacts of these developments.
There are also talking heads all over the place saying that this isn't going to change much. Seriously Zarqawi was turned in by his own people, Iraqi's were dancing in the streets, and we conducted a buttload of other raids in conjunction with this cracking down on cells. Also Iraqi forces are conducting more and more raids on their own. This is all good, no change that, great news! There is a conspiracy going on out there, but it's not a right wing one like you might hear about but rather one by the left and the main stream press to portray things in the most negative light possible. Don Henley was right about Dirty laundry sells.

Ann Coulter and the victim spokepeople

Ok, if you aren't up to speed on this then where have you been? Her new book is out now and in it Coulter took a shot in a way only she can at some of the widows from 9-11 (among other things/groups she took shots at). I'm really torn here. I so TOTALLY get the message she's trying to put out there yet I worry about the tone drowning out the message. Look here for her interview with Matt Lauer.
I do see her point, the liberal left has been throwing up these spokespeople for their "cause" that are victims. They expect us to not combat them, to not criticize them because they lost someone and that the loss makes them above reproach and immune from criticism. Seriously folks, think about this, the BIGGEST bashers that the left has been trotting out over the last few years are
  1. Cindy Sheehan
  2. The "jersey girls" shilling for Kerry yeah this particular group of 9-11 widows
  3. Dick Murtha-marines are guilty cause I say so.
  4. Another Sheehan link cause she really pisses me off.

How come Howard Dean isn't all over the airwaves saying things exactly like these people are, what about Kerry or Kennedy? They don't because when push comes to shove they can't defend their positions, but they have these mouth pieces do it in hopes that we won't critique what they say due to their "victim status". I so totally get Coulters point. She's sick and tired of people not being able to say something about what these mouthpieces say because of some tragedy. Coulter is totally right about that. It's time that people stand up and say "Ok you lost someone, sorry for your loss, but that makes you a foreign policy specialist deserving to be on national TV how?". Seriously, I lost someone in 911 where's my shot on Hardball with Mathews? The fact that these people lost someone in the war or in 911 doesn't make their opinion any more sacrosanct then yours/mine or any other American citizen. We all have the right to critique and question their comments and motives.

However, having said all that I have to wonder if Coulter didn't go overboard with the rhetoric? I have such torn feelings on this. Maybe she was saying it the way she did so that she would get on more TV shows and in more newspapers to push these very important points to a wider audience? Maybe she was especially acidic just to sell more books? Hell maybe she hopes the controversy will generate more interest and more people will wake up to the "Culture of Victimization" that the democrats espouse?

I think that from what I have seen and read that she makes a lot of good points in this book and I will buy it (Hey Ann, if you read this send me a signed copy!!). I just hope that all the rhetoric doesn't drown out her message. Flame away, comment or just go click some of the links to people much wiser then I.

Here's a nice hot cup of STFU

Ok got some time to kill this morning before heading out to work so I did some reading of different blogs and articles while drinking my morning coffee. After reading some things I wanted to offer a nice hot cop of STFU to some people. Here's some recipients:
  1. The Main Stream Media. I saw this article and it called some things to my attention that I hadn't really noticed. Sammon's proves something I've been saying for awhile. Bush is doing a much better job and getting more done then the press gives him credit for and while I don't agree with him on immigration he's not getting any credit. History will remember him better then he's portrayed now provided the assault on higher education by the moonbats is repelled.
  2. Talk about "culture of corruption". This is the guy who started bitching about Bush bringing back the draft while HE was the one who proposed the bill. Now he's sucking at Castro's teat? On a side note, Atlas is hot, smart and a damn good blogger she's a must read imho.
  3. Thank god there is still some sense in California. Bilbray won in Cali. This is the race I blogged about the other day where the Dimmycrat contender was telling people they didn't need to be legal to vote. Of course the press is saying it's a narrow victory but the way I look at it is this, Bilbray won by 5% and there was 5% also going to someone from the Minutemen.
  4. Gay marriage. A lot of people have been saying this really isn't an issue to most Americans (and I was starting to believe them) but I came across this article ( and this one) that shows that a hell of a lot more people care about it then you would think. Personally I don't care and would be fine with it, but then I also think polygamy should be legal and I'm not even a mormon or really religous!
  5. Once again the press decides to smear/slant things. Maybe they should get a pot of STFU at this rate. Read this piece by Michelle Malkin. Yeah thats right another conservative hottie.
  6. Where the hell are the reports of daily rocket attacks at Israel? Personally I feel we need to take the handcuffs off Israel and let them do what they need to do to defend their country. God knows if someone was shooting rockets over our border all the time we would be responding pretty damn fast and harsh towards the aggressor.

Thats about all right now. Flame away, agree, or just say hi. No matter what open your eyes to what's going on out there. Evil wins when good men stand by and do nothing.

Say what part duh

Ok, there's an election going on in California today. The election has some dude named Brian Bilbray going against Francine Busby. Normally this isn't something I would be blogging about but the simple fact that Busby was caught on tape telling illegal immigrants they “You don't need papers for voting.” and that she's still in the running boggles my mind more then trying to figure out if John Kerry voted for something or didn't vote for something! I mean seriously, can you imagine the manic moonbat moans that would be coming outta the left if say, Frist said that? Imagine Jeb Bush telling people that during an election, it would of been headline news across the world. What the hell is in the water out there and can we bottle it? Either the dimmicrats are so confident that they can win no matter what that they can randomly try to encourage voter fraud, or they just think Californians are stupid. Some were saying this election would be a referendum on the Republicans..but I think that if Busby wins it's more of a referendum on California voters.

 

Say what?

Ok I saw this on Patrick Kennedy and I spit coffee all over my screen.
Fresh from rehab, Rep. Patrick Kennedy said yesterday he wants to be treated like an African-American from Washington if and when he gets charged for crashing his car on Capitol Hill.
Um say what? Wait, did you mean that you wanted to get tested for DUI, arrested and have your car impounded when you flunked? No this is what happened.

Police labor union officials said earlier that officers were told not to give Kennedy a sobriety test after the mishap. Kennedy said Thursday police drove him home afterward but that he did not "ask for any special consideration." Asked if he thought he got preferential treatment, Kennedy said, "That's up for the police to decide, and I'm going to cooperate fully with them."
The police incident report includes an observation that Kennedy appeared to have been drinking and his ability was impaired.
"At no time before the incident did I consume any alcohol," Kennedy said in a statement Thursday. Greg Baird, acting chairman of the U.S. Capitol Police union, has called for an inquiry into how the incident was handled. Capitol Police said Friday they were also looking into whether the evidence supports traffic charges against Kennedy.The incident report said Kennedy was cited for three infractions -- failure to keep a proper lane, unreasonable speed and failure to give full time and attention to the operation of a vehicle. According to the report, Sgt. Kenneth Weaver said he saw Kennedy's vehicle -- a green Ford Mustang convertible -- "traveling at a high rate of speed in a construction zone and also swerving into the wrong lane of travel" with its lights off.
WTF. Oh wait, Mr. Patrick Kennedy means AFTER all the preferential treatment he wants to be treated as a normal african american citizen! I mean seriously folks, if anyone who reads this blog had the same thing happen (and to put it in perspective here's what he was did)

Weaver said Kennedy's vehicle hit a curb and swerved back into the wrong lane. He said he was driving east and used "evasive maneuvers in order to avoid a collision" with Kennedy's car.
The officer said he turned around and pursued Kennedy, whose car did not stop but did slow, "finally stopping after colliding head-on with a vehicle barrier." The report said when Weaver approached Kennedy he noticed his "eyes were red and watery, speech was slightly slurred, and upon exiting his vehicle, his balance was unsure."
So let's think about this. He hit a curb, swerved into the wrong lane and a cop had to act like an F-16 pilot and engage in "evasive maneuvers in order to avoid a collision", then he refused to stop and pull over and only stopped after hitting a barrier! Then he got a ride home from the cops and was never had his blood alcohol level tested. Yet he wants to be treated like an "african american from Washington". Here's what else is in that article.

"If you are suspected of driving under the influence, you get arrested," noted Officer Quintin Peterson of the Metropolitan Police Department.
Kennedy, who has a history of substance abuse and depression, said that "10 of the 12 police officers said they did not smell any alcohol on my breath."
Know what that means, it means 2 officers smelled alcohol on his breath. Guess what happens if 12 officers show up at your accident and 2 of them smell booze on you...that's right go directly to jail, do not pass go. I think the cops wanted to do that but maybe he pulled his "get outta jail free card" on them. Maybe something like this happened.

Police Officer: Mr. Kennedy, your breath smells of alcohol and you hit a vehicle barrier. We have to take you in.

Patrick Kennedy: Duuude, I didn't drink much, only enough shots to chase my Ambien you can't take me in. I'm a sennnatur beshides my old man killed a chick while driving and he didn't get arrested.

Police Officer: Oh your that Kennedy, well have a nice night, lemme get one of these other officers to stop trying to catch criminals and drive you home.

Yeah he wants to be treated like everyone else. Sure, oh yeah. If you believe that then maybe you should go down to Washington and try it for yourself, bet the results will be much different for you.

Should we worry more about South America?

Saw this and wanted to update my previous post. Seems Garcia won, thank God (am I allowed to say that without the ACLU coming after me?). There might be hope for the southern continent yet.

Today I was reading this article and started thinking about the continent to the south of us and what the geo-political mess down there means for the United States. Too often we think of South America and we think of Mexico (Mexico is really part of North America) and the immigration problem. Occasionally we may think of Chavez and Venezuela when he does or says something nutty, but I think we are so focused on Iraq and the war on terror that we are missing some things down there that should be of great interest to us. First lets take a look at Chavez and what he's been doing lately.
All in all, we could look at this as just the rantings of another South American dictator and ignore his rantins, but if we do that I think we are really missing a much larger potential issue. Let's look at Chavez's neighbor and fellow socialist, Evo Morales. He went ahead recently and nationalized Bolivias national gas industry. However, Morales was really nice about it, he gave all the companies that spent millions down there 6 months to renegotiate with Bolivia before he just takes it away from them and he allows them to keep 18% of what they produce instead of the earlier agreed on 50% (swell guy isn't he?). What's also worrisome is this comment by Morales.
Morales said the gas fields were "just the beginning, because tomorrow it will be the mines, the forest resources and the land"
When you look at the map of South America, and factor in the amount of gas and oil reserves between the 2 countries you are faced with a potential for a very scary situation. Luckily others have seen this too and we can only hope that while our Governments attention is on the middle east we don't lose focus on areas much closer to home.

Other links
Now couple all this with the estimated 11million illegal aliens in our country (most in south western states), the Atzlan/MECHa/Reconquista movement. Mexico advising people on how to sneak into the country, and our Senates weak attempts at an immigration/border control bill and you have a larger picture of what could be a real messy situation on our southern borders.
