Cold Fury Says IT!!!

Nothing to add to this one! From Instapundit I clicked a link to Cold Fury and read the post that says it all! This is one of those that should be tattooed on the inside of Democrat's eyelids.

Cold Fury post/List Modified and extremely abridged:

1. Bush Administration did not lie!

2. Others including Clinton wanted Saddam removed.

3. There were other reasons for removing Saddam besides the WMDs.

4. The Iraq war is part of the War on Terrorism.

There was no “rush to war” Bush did not ignore the Europeans. 1-1/2 years were spent asking for enforcement of 18 different UN resolutions. They flatly refused, because of the Oil for Food scandal - ( see here for details).

The elections in Iraq WILL WORK!!!

Will the Excitement Ever End?

This one has me wondering how many people will be suffering from apoplexy as a result of Ted Kennedy's Cable Show - - Wonder if he will give readings from Old Mr. Boston - - Thanks to Michelle Malkin - - for the link and heads up -

Iraq Voting

Clicking on the title above "Iraq Voting" will take you to a left wing Canadian blog - - Anyone signed up (Reg. Req.) with them may want to post an opinion - - - Update 10APR06 - - Link to W-3 is now worthless - Check this page - Guardian Article - If it is no longer working and you are really interested I have saved it and might be able to email it to you...

The Independent - U.K. online edition has the article supposedly by an Iraqi woman that tells of atrocities by U.S. troops against Iraqi women


I am an Iraqi woman, and I am boycotting Sunday's elections. Women who do vote will be voting for an enslaved future. Surely, say those who support these elections, after decades of tyranny, here at last is a form of democracy, imperfect, but democracy nevertheless?

In reality, these elections are, for Iraq's women, little more than a cruel joke. Amid the suicide attacks, kidnappings and US-led military assaults of the 20-odd months since Saddam's fall, the little-reported phenomenon is the sharp increase in the persecution of Iraqi women. Women are the new victims of Islamic groups intent on restoring a medieval barbarity and of a political establishment that cares little for women's empowerment.

---------end quote-----

I just finished listening to Hugh Hewett's show and he broadcast from El Toro, CA where they have a polling place for Iraqi citizens in the U.S. - One of the people he interviewed was a young man whose mother is in Iraq. She is running for office. She hopes to be on the parliament that is going to shape the constitution for the future of there nation. He voted for his mom of course. He also said that it is required that every third person on the ballot be a woman! - - -

I thought the interview with the young lad sort of blew the article out of the water. I then wondered if it was some man that beats his wife that really wrote the Independent article.
So I ran a Google search on "Houzan Mahmoud", author of the article. - Hmmmm! This explains it!

Had to do a bit more research to figure this out. Came up with this -
from an ABC News article (Still makes it questionable in my eyes...)
- - - Women have much at stake in this race. That's why the rules guarantee at least a quarter of the 275 seats in the new parliament will go to women. -

Review of Hugh's book BLOG

Can you tell a book by it's cover? Well with Hugh Hewitt's book Blog : Understanding the Information Reformation That's Changing Your World the cover helps me tell which book in the pile is his each time I look for it. The bright orange really stands out and I must say this is the first book I've read that I didn't spend an equal amount of time searching for it as I did reading it.

This book is a must read for all people interested in blogs and blogging.

It will be interesting to see how someone who doesn't know Hugh reviews the book. Conglomerate has a blog that posts his opinion of the introduction. So far it seems he has a problem with Hugh's 'boasting' but perhaps he will see it for what I saw it as. I believe Hugh's opinion was, "If I and many others can do it you can too."

This may very well be the best thing to happen in the Continuing Chapters of the Book of Acts since the Ascension -



Well, I guess it will be a bit below Pentecost but it will be near up there with Luther nailing the 95 thesus on the door. The reformation is happening! (read Blog by Hugh Hewitt)

Hugh Hewitt suggested someone should hold a conference for Christian bloggers

Andy Jackson said, "Here am I Lord!" (to Jesus not Hewitt) and looks like God is gonna use him in a big way.

Support for this in "time, treasure and talent" I'm sure will be appreciated. -

Donate cash in advance if you can, as you can and when you can.

Must Read!

Thomas Foreman has an article in the Indiana Gazette that is a must read - Thanks to Instapundit for the link -

The part I liked in the article -
Here's the good part: It's not hopeless. Every Iraqi I talk to has hope. I've written several times on the power of hope, and right here is a living, breathing 24-million-strong testament to it. As long as some hope endures for the Iraqi people, my time here will not have been wasted.

It will not be perfect. This very well could be the most dangerous period we face while we are over here. There will be some violence against election workers, voters, even the candidates themselves. That precedent has been set already in the past few weeks.

We are ready. The Iraqis are ready. And we all know what we have to do to see this vital task through to its conclusion.

Although, as I said - It is a must read!!!

Clinton and Charlie Rose

Hugh Hewitt posted:
Bill Clinton, on stage with Charlie Rose, in Davos, Switzerland today:

"And most of the terrible things that Saddam Hussein did in the 1980's he did with the full, knowing support of the United States government. Because he wasn't Iran, and Iran was what it was because we got rid of their parliamentary democracy back in the '50's. At least that's my belief. I know it is not popular for an American ever to say anything like this, but I think it is true."

Applause from the Davos crowd.

Does Senator Clinton agree with this analysis?
Hopefully the audio will be posted soon at Radioblogger Check here often because it will be worth the download so you can clip it down to emailable sizes and send to friends and enemies. -

This would have been real funny stuff if it wasn't so sad. - An ex-president knocking down every past president (and present too!) back to FDR. Of course his time in office everything was done perfectly.

What I though was funny was that as he warmed up the crowd it was more and more like he was playing to the audience as opposed to being himself.

Oh! Wait. Playing to an audience is being himself...

Remember the laugh/two step tears at Ron Brown's funeral? Now that was good!

Homeless Count Equals Big Bucks

L.A. Times (reg. req.)has a story on the Homeless Count that is a nationwide event (Cinncinati Enquirer). (Also - Google - homeless count)
Times says, "In Los Angeles County, with about $53 million in federal funds for the homeless at stake, the canvass is one of the most ambitious in the country."

Most counts will be completed in one night and will be simple head tallies. But some larger areas, such as Los Angeles County, will count during several days and use "sophisticated sampling methods". (Quotes mine)

I have to wonder with so much money on the line how can taxpayers be assured these numbers will not be inflated. I'm wondering too what is being done to avoid duplicate counts? Don't get me wrong. I'm not against the homeless per se but I do question the accountability of programs that have been set up using our tax dollars.

Talking about it with a buddy of mine he (name withheld so activists won't protest in front of his house) suggested it would be cheaper to have the homeless come to a central point and count them. "Offer ten bucks a head and have them meet at, hmmm... Say the mayors inner office in each town and city."

My buddy hates mayors...

Punish Voter Fraud

Michelle Malkin has a post on voter fraud fiascos in Wisconsin and East St. Louis


Democratic Secretary of State Kevin Shelley is in trouble - allegations that he used millions of dollars in federal Help America Vote Act funds to boost his political profile and reward Democratic allies, [Shelley] also faces two state investigations and a federal probe into accusations he accepted campaign contributions from a political ally that had been laundered through a state grant. He's also been accused of accepting political donations in his state office - - - -

Cognitively Dissonant Has the link to the story about the 5 democrats that slashed tires on republican get-out-the-vote vans. - The sons of a first-term congresswoman and Milwaukee's former acting mayor were among five Democratic activists charged Monday with slashing the tires of vans rented by Republicans to drive voters and monitors to the polls on Election Day. - Sowande Omokunde, son of Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wis.), and Michael Pratt, son of ex-Milwaukee acting mayor Marvin Pratt, were charged with criminal damage to property, a felony. -----------
It seems that voter fraud is all over the place - How about a law that anyone convicted of committing voter fraud must serve their time doing community service?

In Iraq! -

They better figure out a way to really punish these rectal apertures or the next election will be worse. -

I have the punishments all figured out -

Defacing/removing bumper stickers from a car or truck
- Owner of the car or truck gets to run over the guilty party with same car or truck. (Dems beware, Republicans have all the SUVs which are heavier than Volvos and Saabs.)

Stealing a sign from a front yard
- Sign stake through the heart pinning the guilty party to the same spot the sign was stolen from. (This might appeal to Anne Rice fans)

Abuse of contribution funds
- Every bit of goods or property owned by the guilty party will be sold on eBay and the funds go to the opposing candidate. Guilty party will be given a shopping cart (with one bad wheel) to start a new career.

Fraudulent ballots / Stuffing the ballot box
- Persons culpable of this will be thrust into the ballot box and fed/watered through the slot until the next election.


Really I think we better start letting our elected officials know that we want to see some stiff penalties for perpretators of voter fraud. - We will know from their reaction how much they depend on it for their own re-election.

Good News for Iraq

I have long complained that I do not see the Muslims standing up and denouncing the activities of terrorists. From what I understand there were very few Muslim clerics that stood up and declared the attack on the twin towers was against Muslim law. They did so at the peril of their lives.

I will admit I am new to the blogosphere and previously got my news from MSM and mostly talk radio. Both are somewhat limited. One more so than the other.

Thanks to Instapundit for this link to Friends of Democracy which greatly heartens me. May I suggest putting this site in your favorites, visiting often, supporting and commenting often. Those who set up this site need our prayers.

Email the link to those you know are disheartened by the mainstream medias lack of coverage of good things happening in Iraq.

Mom With Righteous Indignation

Regarding the Yellow Ribbon on the university truck it seems the policy (not law) says, "No UNAUTHORIZED STICKERS are allowed on DAS owned vehicles." - So what is to stop Frohnmayer from authorizing them?

"But the the other groups will want their colored ribbons on their trucks!"

Great! Stop whining and put 'em on. Seems the other employees want to support or show awareness for breast cancer research or whatever let 'em...-

I received this email sent to the man himself from the same wonderful lady that wrote the wonderful poems (you still need to send the 3rd one Debbie) and whose son is currently in Iraq. (is that a run on sentence?) - What poems you say? See in my archives - Autumn in My Heart & For Seth - Pics of a wonderful father who was across the street from the mess hall explosion and each day is doing his part to set a nation free. A man I have never met but care deeply about. Keep the troops in your prayers.

-----------email follows------

To: President Frohnmayer
Subject: Political statement???

Excuse me! Since when did military service become a "political statement"? Our soldiers are providing defense against terrorism. Once again leadership has caved in to the whining of a select few rather than stand up for what is just. How DARE you ban this form of support for our military! You have just slapped the faces of all the families who have buried soldiers. That dictionary-defined idiot who called this a political statement seems not to understand that our soldiers are NOT making a political statement--our government is. Soldiers follow orders and those orders come from the president.
Get up off the carpet and brush off the whiner's footprints! It's time to develop real backbone and stand up for what is right. Set an example for justice for many to follow.
Debbie Weaver


As a side note when I use spell check it wants me to correct 'Frohnmayer' and make it 'frowner'. Hmmm.

University of Oregon Knows Best!

Kevin McCullough Was hosting for Hugh Hewitt today and presented this story (This is abbreviated -Please go to Kevin's site for the full story)
---------- quote
UNIVERSITY BANS SUPPORT FOR THE TROOPS: A truly disgusting policy is being carried out at the University of Oregon.

Magnetic Yellow Ribbons that say "Support The Troops" have been surreptitiously banned by the administration at the University of Oregon.

The origin of the policy was a complaint from a fellow employee and the claim was that the sticker was in fact a "political statement".

The employee who had the magnetic ribbons had put them on his vehicle months previous - but Friday a university employee complained.

The very least we Americans should be allowed to do is to support those who fight and too many times die to allow the rest of us to live free...

Office of President Dave Frohnmayer
PHONE HIM:541-346-3036
---------- end quote
Michelle Malkin has a great addition to the story from James Saker who links to lots of UofO ANTI WAR uses of taxpayer money.
prying1 sez -
- What is the mindset of these people that makes them so arrogant? Self centeredness is my guess. They are the only people smart enough to be able to express their opinion because everyone else is wrong.

- This from the same group that claims that everything is shades of gray and there are no absolutes. Hence, no real right or wrong. Unless they don't agree with it. Then it is wrong...

Hurrah For Hugh!

Went to Hugh Hewitts Blog today and found he had written an article for the Los Angeles Times
After reading his article and Hurrahing three times I noticed a button near the top right side that said 'contact us'. I clicked on it and wrote the following:
Thank you for allowing your critics to voice their opinions. I have personally been an outspoken critic of theTimes and have even told people at newstands to not bother buying it unless they like the Sports Section or need the Want Ads.
Hugh Hewitt's article (Jan 23, 05 - Cover the Terror War as a War) was right and I hope you take his suggestions to heart.
You and others in power at the Times may not appreciate what President Bush is trying to accomplish in Iraq BUT there are many potential readers who do. Your self centered and egotistical opinions of yourselves and the Utopian Idealism that runs through your ranks has caused people to turn away from your paper. Want to increase your readership, thereby profits and job security? (look at your circulation and then the number of people in L.A./Orange County) Open up your pages to the other side without the smearing adjectives.
I'd suggest you do the same with La Opinion too.

I have to wonder if they will get it? - I can only suggest that others reading the article will take a few minutes, go to the L.A. Times and leave a missive encouraging them to open their pages. I would love to have to apologize for yesterday's post.

Why can't they do their job?

MainStreamMedia Stinks - They know it but can't stop much less turn around. Will they ever just stick to reporting facts without their near libelous misrepresentations of people whose ideas, faith, political views, philosophies and ideologies they disapprove?


They will continue to go down the road they travel until they are out of business.

I guess it makes 'em happy...
