Atta played the Gov’t in 2000

As much as I read news, I can't keep up! I never heard of what Mark Steyn talks about hereWITH hindsight, the defining encounter of the age was not between Mohammed Atta's jet and the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, but that between Mohammed Atta and Johnelle Bryant a year earlier. Bryant is an official with the US Department of Agriculture in Florida, and the late Atta had gone to see her about getting a $US650,000 government loan to convert a plane into the world's largest … [Read more...]

Bill Moyers another old Dem hero bites the dust

Pregnant widow of PFC must deal with scum

UPDATE: Seems these flags were used to light up the car, but not as a political statement. Just plain stupidity. I stand corrected.I'm sorry, I don't use the word scum often, so if I am using it now, you know it is not being used lightly. There are no words:FAIRFIELD - American flags, lining the lawn of the mother- and father-in-law of fallen U.S. Army Pfc. Timothy Hines Jr., were heaped in a pile early Saturday and burned under a car parked in front of the home - less than 24 hours after … [Read more...]

Ed Morrissey has the last word on Nadagate

Or, in a sane world, it would be the last word. But there is little that is sane, or intellectually honest in 21st Century American political discourse.Nevertheless, Captain Ed - wearing his Daily Standard Cap - seems quite in his wits, with this piece, and one can only add please God, make someone - anyone - on the left stand up and say, "yes...this overblown story is absurd."I'm not counting on it, though. Meanwhile, Greg Pierce notes - sigh - more double standards in how the press deals … [Read more...]

Democrats out another gay guy

One of the reasons I had to leave the Democrat party, after a lifetime, was because I couldn't stomach the double-standards anymore. Just as I couldn't stand to hear that the lesbian seduction of a 13 year old girl in the play The Vagina Monologues was considered a "good" rape (the play has now re-written the girl's age to 16, but it's still "good"), I cannot stand it when the supposedly tolerant left outs a gay person. There is never a good reason to invade someone's privacy like that. You … [Read more...]

The Get-Bush-Scandal 12 Step Dance

Betsey Newmark has very cleverly thought through the process of an incipient "heh-heh-we've-got-Bush-now" Democrat/Media scandal, and she's broken them down into 12 easy steps:1. Something comes out in the press that looks terribly damaging.2. The media goes into overdrive hyping the story and focusing on it monomaniacally.3. The lefty bloggers start drooling in glee.4. Democratic politicians make somber, seemingly heartsick speeches denouncing the administration in increasingly … [Read more...]

Democrats blame US in oil-for-food scandal

I'm gonna have a heart attack and die from this big surprise!Senate Democrats Fault U.S. in Iraq Oil ScandalThe United States did not do enough to curb corruption by American companies involved in the United Nations' oil-for-food program in Iraq, say Democrats on a Senate committee investigating abuses in the program.A report by the Democrats released late Monday said the State Department and the United States Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control had taken … [Read more...]

Is this the tipping point?

In Rumer Godden's exquisite little gem of a book, In This House of Brede, a Benedictine Abbot and Abbess are conversing about the changing times. The abbot complains that some of his monks want to shorten the hours of the Divine Office (the liturgical prayer that is the "work" of the monastic) in order to work on their farm or their printery. The abbess confesses that some of her nuns want the same. The abbot, in frustration, says, "contemplatives want to do the work of active orders, active … [Read more...]

Bush is a Loser? And Harry Reid is, what? A winner?

Ms. Newmark shakes her head in disgust at Harry Reid's unfathomable stupidity and his nasty, quite wrong, undiplomatic, extremely partisan and hapless (considering the US President is on foreign soil) remarks. Then she reminds us of some of his other nasty, quite wrong, undiplomatic, extremely partisan remarks.Ms. Newmark suggests that Reid is a dim bulb who should try shutting his yap, sometimes. I concur. And I cannot help but counter Reid's assertion that President Bush is "a … [Read more...]
