The Question That Didn't Get Asked...

From The Heritage Foundation:

Morning Bell: The Question That Didn’t Get Asked

Yesterday before President Barack Obama’s 100 days news conference, the Commerce Department released data showing that the U.S. economy shrank at an annual rate of 6.1% in the January-March quarter.

This comes on top of a report from the Bureau of Labor and Statistics released earlier this month showing that the U.S. has lost more than 1.2 million jobs since President Barack Obama was sworn into office.

Yet despite all this bad economic news Obama claimed that his stimulus $787 billion deficit spending stimulus package “has already saved or created over 150,000 jobs.”

While pressing Obama on a variety of national security questions, the White House press corps failed to ask:
“Mr. President, if your administration is already claiming credit for jobs created in this economy, when can the American people start holding you accountable for all the jobs lost?”

Obama’s desire to escape all accountability for his economic policies was also on display earlier in the day when he told a town hall in Missouri: “We inherited a $1.3 trillion deficit. That wasn’t me.”
Oh really?
The Associated Press fact checked Obama’s claim and reports:

"Congress controls the purse strings, not the president, and it was under Democratic control for Obama’s last two years as Illinois senator.

Obama supported the emergency bailout package in President George W. Bush’s final months — a package Democratic leaders wanted to make bigger.… He’s persuaded Congress to expand children’s health insurance, education spending, health information technology and more.

He’s moving ahead on a variety of big-ticket items on health care, the environment, energy and transportation that, if achieved, will be more enduring than bank bailouts and aid for homeowners.

The nonpartisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget estimated his policy proposals would add a net $428 billion to the deficit over four years, even accounting for his spending reduction goals. Now, the deficit is nearly quadrupling to $1.75 trillion."

The cost of Obama’s massive spending explosion is about to hit home. The Treasury Department announced yesterday that it is going to step up the issuing of 30-year bonds to cover the hundreds of billions of dollars the Obama administration is spending on bailouts and stimulus.

A special advisory committee to the Treasury then warned, “Treasuries will probably not receive the same favorable demand treatment from either source over the coming quarters.”

Translation: foreign and domestic investors are going to demand significantly higher interest rates in exchange for buying the avalanche of new bonds.
Higher interest rates will strangle our economic recovery.

Congress and the President should do the opposite of what they apparently intend: They should cut taxes on productive activities, not increase them. They should cut spending, not increase it.

And rather than increase government spending with new entitlements like a government-run health plan, they should reduce future entitlement benefits to give credit markets some confidence that U.S. policymakers have not entirely abandoned fiscal discipline.

Oh Annie! You Naughty Girl!

Without any pretense of an argument, which liberals are neurologically incapable of, the mainstream media are now asserting that our wussy interrogation techniques at Guantanamo constituted "torture" and have irreparably harmed America's image abroad.

Only the second of those alleged facts is true: The president's release of the Department of Justice interrogation memos undoubtedly hurt America's image abroad, as we are snickered at in capitals around the world, where they know what real torture is. The Arabs surely view these memos as a pack of lies.
What about the pills Americans have to turn us gay?

The techniques used against the most stalwart al-Qaida members, such as Abu Zubaydah, included one terrifying procedure referred to as "the attention grasp." As described in horrifying detail in the Justice Department memo, the "attention grasp" consisted of:

"(G)rasping the individual with both hands, one hand on each side of the collar opening, in a controlled and quick motion. In the same motion as the grasp, the individual is drawn toward the interrogator."
The end.

There are rumors that Dick "Darth Vader" Cheney wanted to take away the interrogators' Altoids before they administered "the grasp," but Department of Justice lawyers deemed this too cruel.

And that's not all! As the torments were gradually increased, next up the interrogation ladder came "walling." This involves pushing the terrorist against a flexible wall, during which his "head and neck are supported with a rolled hood or towel that provides a C-collar effect to prevent whiplash."

People pay to have a lot rougher stuff done to them at Six Flags Great Adventure. Indeed, with plastic walls and soft neck collars, "walling" may be the world's first method of "torture" in which all the implements were made by Fisher-Price.

As the memo darkly notes, walling doesn't cause any pain, but is supposed to induce terror by making a "loud noise": "(T)he false wall is in part constructed to create a loud sound when the individual hits it, which will further shock and surprise." (!!!)

If you need a few minutes to compose yourself after being subjected to that horror, feel free to take a break from reading now. Sometimes a cold compress on the forehead is helpful, but don't let it drip or you might end up waterboarding yourself.

The CIA's interrogation techniques couldn't be more ridiculous if they were out of Monty Python's Spanish Inquisition sketch:

Cardinal! Poke her with the soft cushions! ... Hmm!
She is made of harder stuff! Cardinal Fang!

So you think you are strong because you can survive the soft cushions. Well, we shall see. Biggles! Put her in the Comfy Chair! ...

Now -- you will stay in the Comfy Chair until lunchtime, with only a cup of coffee at 11.

Further up the torture ladder -- from Guantanamo, not Monty Python -- comes the "insult slap," which is designed to be virtually painless, but involves the interrogator invading "the individual's personal space."

If that doesn't work, the interrogator shows up the next day wearing the same outfit as the terrorist. (Awkward.) I will spare you the gruesome details of the CIA's other comical interrogation techniques and leap directly to the penultimate "torture" in their arsenal: the caterpillar.

In this unspeakable brutality, a harmless caterpillar is placed in the terrorist's cell. Justice Department lawyers expressly denied the interrogators' request to trick the terrorist into believing the caterpillar was a "stinging insect."

Human rights groups have variously described being trapped in a cell with a live caterpillar as "brutal," "soul-wrenching" and, of course, "adorable."

If the terrorist manages to survive the non-stinging caterpillar maneuver -- the most fiendish method of torture ever devised by the human mind that didn't involve being forced to watch "The View" -- CIA interrogators had another sadistic trick up their sleeves.

I am not at liberty to divulge the details, except to mention the procedure's terror-inducing name: "the ladybug."

Finally, the most savage interrogation technique at Guantanamo was "waterboarding," which is only slightly rougher than the Comfy Chair.

Thousands of our troops are waterboarded every year as part of their training, but not until it was done to Khalid Sheikh Mohammed -- mastermind of the 9/11 attack on America -- were liberal consciences shocked.

I think they were mostly shocked because they couldn't figure out how Joey Buttafuoco ended up in Guantanamo.

As non-uniformed combatants, all of the detainees at Guantanamo could have been summarily shot on the battlefield under the Laws of War.

Instead, we gave them comfy chairs, free lawyers, better food than is served in Afghani caves, prayer rugs, recreational activities and top-flight medical care -- including one terrorist who was released, whereupon he rejoined the jihad against America, after being fitted for an expensive artificial leg at Guantanamo, courtesy of the U.S. taxpayer.

Only three terrorists -- who could have been shot -- were waterboarded. This is not nearly as bad as "snowboarding," which is known to cause massive buttocks pain and results in approximately 10 deaths per year.

Normal human beings -- especially those who grew up with my older brother, Jimmy -- can't read the interrogation memos without laughing.

At Al-Jazeera, they don't believe these interrogation memos are for real. Muslims look at them and say: THIS IS ALL THEY'RE DOING? We do that for practice. We do that to our friends.

But The New York Times is populated with people who can't believe they live in a country where people would put a caterpillar in a terrorist's cell.


What a woman!
Thank you dear Ann!

Fred Thompson Calls Obama Arrogant, Naive, Inept...

From NewsMax.Com...

Fred Thompson: Obama Loosed 'Dogs of War' on CIA
By: Jim Meyers
Former Senator, TV star and presidential candidate Fred Thompson tells Newsmax that President Barack Obama is revealing his “naivete, ineptitude and arrogance” as he deals with matters of national security.

The Tennessee Republican, who now hosts a radio show on Westwood One along with his wife Jeri, also said the “dogs of war have been loosed” over left-wing attempts to single out Bush-era officials for prosecution relating to the treatment of detainees.

Newsmax.TV’s Ashley Martella cited the announcement that the Defense Department is going to release many pictures showing alleged abuse by U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, and asked Thompson what purpose that might serve.

“None, other than to serve as propaganda tools for our worst enemies,” Thompson said.

“This was set in motion when the president first decided to release” CIA memos on interrogation techniques used on terrorist suspects, Thompson told Newsmax.
“There was no purpose in doing that except to make him look good internationally and to the left wing here at home,” he said. “It did a lot of damage."

“In one stroke of a pen he declassified top-secret documents that people would otherwise go to jail for releasing. It gave al-Qaida and the Taliban a blueprint as to the outer limits of our interrogation techniques."

“We have to remember that [the techniques were used] in the aftermath of 9/11. Congress was briefed on these techniques. Some of them asked if they were really going far enough to get what they needed to get, and it was approved at high levels in the administration."

“They carefully crafted them as best they could to not go too far, and to provide safeguards when they were carrying out these admittedly rough techniques on these people who had this vital information."

“So now we’re really talking about a war crimes tribunal, which this country has never done. We’ve never brought to criminal court prior administrations in this country."

“Harry Truman could have been accused of war crimes, I suppose, for dropping the bombs. President Obama authorized the killing of those three [pirates] in the Indian Ocean not too long ago. Prosecuting these people under these circumstances is something you hear about in banana republics and third-world countries, not the United States of America."

“The president’s opened up a terrible Pandora’s Box and there’s going to be a price to pay before this thing is ended.”

Martella asked if the Obama administration was acquiescing to its far-left base when it released the CIA memos on interrogation techniques.

“I think in this case, in all probability, they thought that they could cater to their left wing, appease their demands, by releasing these memos and then it might not go any further,” Thompson said.

“Because surely they were able to see that this was bad for them the way it’s going to be bad for the country."

“This is going to have ramifications that are far-reaching. They thought they could put the genie back in the bottle after they opened it, and of course appeasement never works that way."

“There was a firestorm. The attorney general’s received 250 names in a petition to urge the appointment of a special prosecutor for this. The left-wing blogs went nuts. They started running television ads and so forth."

“And then after promising that there would be no prosecutions, [Obama] acquiesced and now opened the door for that. So I think it’s a case of naivete, ineptitude and unbelievable arrogance and lack of experience."

“We elected someone who didn’t have two minutes’ worth of experience with regard to matters concerning national security. Now he’s cast in this position and he’s making decisions that are going to have far-reaching ramifications not only abroad, and not only with our enemies, but in dividing our country even further here at home in ways I don’t think we’ve ever been divided before."

“We’re going to have members of Congress testifying against each other if they go down this road.”

Martella noted that Rep. Peter King of New York has said that if Democrats do go ahead and attempt to prosecute Bush administration CIA interrogation lawyers, the Republicans should “go to war” with them.

“That just gives you an example of the atmosphere on Capitol Hill today,” Thompson observed.
“People are angry. People are upset. You’ve got people on the left, you’ve got the Democrats talking about truth commissions, talking about investigations and Congressional hearings and urging prosecution. They’re fighting among each other on the Democratic side as to just how they should go and how far they should go.”

Some of these Democrats are “the same people who were briefed on these techniques back in 2002,” Thompson said, “including Nancy Pelosi, who’s not telling the truth now, who’s trying to parse words and trying to get around the fact that she knew what was going on, as others did back when this happened."

“That creates a new level of animosity like I’ve never seen before, and I served in the Senate for eight years. The dogs of war have been loosed in this country and I don’t know what is going to happen before we see the end of it. But none of it’s going to be good.”

Thompson’s radio show is heard on weekdays from noon to 2 p.m.

Brady Campaign And Lautenberg Unite To Mislead And Control--Again

More news about gun control...

Brady Campaign And Lautenberg Unite To Mislead And Control--Again
Friday, April 24, 2009

This week, in a typically misleading move designed to bolster their political agenda rather than reduce violent crime, the Brady Campaign released a report calling for background checks on "all gun sales in America, including at gun shows."

The Brady report was intentionally designed to correspond with, and bolster, a "gun show loophole" bill (S. 843) introduced this week by fanatical anti-gun Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ). In fact, the Brady report was released at the press conference Lautenberg held earlier this week.

Paul Helmke, President of the Brady Campaign, said in the group's press release, "We can do this. It will have no impact on any law-abiding gun owner in the country."

Of course, that is absolutely false—the proposal will ONLY impact law-abiding gun owners, including any law-abiding person selling a firearm to a law-abiding buyer.

Does Helmke really think that criminals, drug cartel members, and violent gang thugs are going to start legally purchasing firearms and submitting to a background check?

Law-breakers, by definition, break the law.
They are criminals; they are predatory, they operate outside of the law.

You know that, we know that, Lautenberg knows that, even Helmke knows that.
Lautenberg's new bill is essentially a re-introduction of the same bill he introduced in the 110th Congress—S. 2577.

And as before, S. 843 calls for massive new government powers to register gun show customers, register gun owners, retain information on people who pass criminal records checks when buying firearms, heavily tax both gun collectors and gun sales, and require gun show promoters to police gun show customers, as if they were agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

The bill is not about gun shows.

Rather, S. 843 is a solution in search of a problem; numerous government studies have determined that gun shows are an insignificant or miniscule source of firearms misused in crime.

For instance, a 2000 Bureau of Justice Statistics study, "Federal Firearms Offenders, 1992-98," found only 1.7% of federal prison inmates obtained their gun from a gun show. Similarly, a 1997 National Institute of Justice study reported less than 2% of criminals' guns come from gun shows.

In reality, gun shows are large, public events held in convention centers and banquet halls.

But S. 843 defines "gun show" so broadly that it would include a person's home. Merely "offering" to "exchange" a firearm at an "event" could be banned.

The National Matches at Camp Perry and your local gun club's Sunday trap shoot could be defined as "events" subject to the bill's provisions. Even talking about a gun at an "event" could be seen as an "offer" to sell a gun.

Even if you are not a dealer, but you display a gun at a gun show, and then months later sell the gun to someone you met at the show, you would be subject to the same requirements as if you had completed the sale at the gun show.

The restrictions and regulations S. 843 would impose upon real gun shows, and upon gun owners' personal activities that the bill would preposterously define as "gun shows" and "events," are unprecedented. S. 843 actually imposes restrictions on "gun show" transactions well beyond those required for firearms transactions at a gun store.

And running afoul of S. 843's numerous, far-fetched provisions could send you to prison for years.

Among other things, the legislation calls for:
Gun show customer registration: A person who attends a show, even without a gun, who even discusses the possibility of selling a gun, would be required to sign "a ledger with identifying information."

Gun show promoters would have to retain the ledgers indefinitely for inspection by the BATFE.

Absurd requirement on gun show promoters: Because a promoter cannot know whether a person who attends his show will discuss the sale of a gun, he will have to require every customer to sign the ledger, and check every customer's identification to verify the information required on the ledger.

Invasion of privacy: In addition to records kept on gun show customers, this bill would allow the FBI to retain, for 90 days, personal information about people who clear instant checks when buying guns.

Gun collector registration: If you are at home with a collection of fifty or more firearms, it would be a five-year felony to "offer" or "exchange" a single gun -- even between family or friends -- unless you first registered with the BATFE and paid a fee, the amount of which would be at BATFE's discretion.

The real objective of this legislation is to over-regulate gun shows out of business.

Rest assured we will continue to actively monitor the bill and will apprise you of any developments. Please be sure to contact your U.S. Senators and urge them to strongly OPPOSE S. 843!

9th Circuit Court of Appeals Holds That 2nd Amendment Applies To The States

The latest news...

9th Circuit Court of Appeals Holds That the 2nd Amendment Applies To The States
Friday, April 24, 2009

This week, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit marked a milestone in Second Amendment history by ruling that the Second Amendment applies to the states through the due process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

NRA has been involved in, and supportive of, this case for the past ten years and has filed several amicus briefs in the case.

"The historic Heller Decision was a major victory for law-abiding gun owners and recognized that the federal government and the District of Columbia cannot infringe on our Right to Keep and Bear Arms," said NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox.

"This week's decision, which applies to the states in the Ninth Circuit (Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington), ensures that the fundamental freedoms affirmed in Heller are not just limited to the residents of Washington, D.C."

In 1999, the Alameda County Board of Supervisors passed an ordinance that made it a misdemeanor to possess a firearm on county property, effectively banning gun shows.

This ordinance affected a local business, owned by Russell and Sallie Nordyke, which promotes gun shows throughout California. In an attempt to continue holding their gun shows on the Alameda county fairgrounds property, the Nordykes filed suit to strike down the ordinance.

The Ninth Circuit upheld the ordinance banning guns on county property, but found, consistent with the views of most Second Amendment scholars, that the Second Amendment protects the Right to Keep and Bear Arms for all law-abiding Americans.

"The NRA shares the Nordykes' disappointment with the ruling on the county ordinance, as gun shows should not be discriminated against by local government entities. The incorporation portion of the decision, however, is a major step forward in protecting our Second Amendment freedoms," said Cox.

"This decision brings us closer to seeing Heller applied throughout the land," concluded Cox. "After nearly 10 years of litigation, the hard work of the Nordykes, their attorneys, Donald Kilmer and Don Kates, and NRA's legal team has resulted in this week's historic decision."

I'd Rather Be Waterboarding!

Even though America suffered it's most traumatic, most devastating attack on the homeland back on Septembe 11, 2001, the Deomcrats are so angry with George Bush that they will say and do nearly ANYTHING to smear and defame the man!

The Democrats certainly do not have America's best interests at heart.

The current President has released many secret CIA documents that expose interrogation techniques to any future terrorist. It wouldn't be much of a stretch to believe that said terrorists are now training on how to resist those very techniques!

By Michael Ramirez

Stupid Liberals!

The current Speaker of The House has said she was not briefed on any of those techniques and she knew absolutely nothing about them.

Pelosi briefed on waterboarding in '02
Glenn Thrush at POLITICO
Nancy Pelosi denies knowing U.S. officials used waterboarding — but GOP operatives are pointing to a 2007 Washington Post story which describes an hour-long 2002 briefing in which Pelosi was told about enhanced interrogation techniques in graphic detail.

Two unnamed officials told the paper that Pelosi, then a member of the Democratic minority, didn't raise substantial objections.

Joby Warrick and Dan Eggen
In September 2002, four members of Congress met in secret for a first look at a unique CIA program designed to wring vital information from reticent terrorism suspects in U.S. custody. For more than an hour, the bipartisan group, which included current House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), was given a virtual tour of the CIA's overseas detention sites and the harsh techniques interrogators had devised to try to make their prisoners talk.

Among the techniques described, said two officials present, was waterboarding, a practice that years later would be condemned as torture by Democrats and some Republicans on Capitol Hill. But on that day, no objections were raised. Instead, at least two lawmakers in the room asked the CIA to push harder, two U.S. officials said.

UPDATE: A Pelosi spokesman passes along her response to the article when it first appeared, claiming that Pelosi's successor on the intel committee -- Yep, Jane Harman -- lodged a protest with the CIA when she learned waterboarding was in use.

"On one occasion, in the fall of 2002, I was briefed on interrogation techniques the Administration was considering using in the future. The Administration advised that legal counsel for the both the CIA and the Department of Justice had concluded that the techniques were legal.

I had no further briefings on the techniques. Several months later, my successor as Ranking Member of the House Intelligence Committee, Jane Harman, was briefed more extensively and advised the techniques had in fact been employed. It was my understanding at that time that Congresswoman Harman filed a letter in early 2003 to the CIA to protest the use of such techniques, a protest with which I concurred."

Lower down in the article, the authors and their sources acknowledge Pelosi & Co. were severely constrained in what they could do with the information — and had no way of knowing how the techniques would ultimately used or abused in a pre-Abu Gharaib era.

Congressional officials say the groups' ability to challenge the practices was hampered by strict rules of secrecy that prohibited them from being able to take notes or consult legal experts or members of their own staffs. And while various officials have described the briefings as detailed and graphic, it is unclear precisely what members were told about waterboarding and how it is conducted. Several officials familiar with the briefings also recalled that the meetings were marked by an atmosphere of deep concern about the possibility of an imminent terrorist attack.

"In fairness, the environment was different then because we were closer to Sept. 11 and people were still in a panic," said one U.S. official present during the early briefings. "But there was no objecting, no hand-wringing.

The attitude was, 'We don't care what you do to those guys as long as you get the information you need to protect the American people.'"

But what is the truth???

CIA Confirms: Waterboarding 9/11 Mastermind Led to Info that Aborted 9/11-Style Attack on Los Angeles
By Terence P. Jeffrey, Editor-in-Chief , CNS News
The Central Intelligence Agency told CNSNews.com today that it stands by the assertion made in a May 30, 2005 Justice Department memo that the use of “enhanced techniques” of interrogation on al Qaeda leader Khalid Sheik Mohammed (KSM) -- including the use of waterboarding -- caused KSM to reveal information that allowed the U.S. government to thwart a planned attack on Los Angeles.

Before he was waterboarded, when KSM was asked about planned attacks on the United States, he ominously told his CIA interrogators, “Soon, you will know.”

According to the previously classified May 30, 2005 Justice Department memo that was released by President Barack Obama last week, the thwarted attack -- which KSM called the “Second Wave”-- planned “ ‘to use East Asian operatives to crash a hijacked airliner into’ a building in Los Angeles.”

KSM was the mastermind of the first “hijacked-airliner” attacks on the United States, which struck the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Northern Virginia on Sept. 11, 2001.

After KSM was captured by the United States, he was not initially cooperative with CIA interrogators. Nor was another top al Qaeda leader named Zubaydah. KSM, Zubaydah, and a third terrorist named Nashiri were the only three persons ever subjected to waterboarding by the CIA. (Additional terrorist detainees were subjected to other “enhanced techniques” that included slapping, sleep deprivation, dietary limitations, and temporary confinement to small spaces -- but not to water-boarding.)

This was because the CIA imposed very tight restrictions on the use of waterboarding. “The ‘waterboard,’ which is the most intense of the CIA interrogation techniques, is subject to additional limits,” explained the May 30, 2005 Justice Department memo.

“It may be used on a High Value Detainee only if the CIA has ‘credible intelligence that a terrorist attack is imminent’; ‘substantial and credible indicators that the subject has actionable intelligence that can prevent, disrupt or deny this attack’; and ‘[o]ther interrogation methods have failed to elicit this information within the perceived time limit for preventing the attack.’”

The quotations in this part of the Justice memo were taken from an Aug. 2, 2004 letter that CIA Acting General Counsel John A. Rizzo sent to the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel.

Before they were subjected to “enhanced techniques” of interrogation that included waterboarding, KSM and Zubaydah were not only uncooperative but also appeared contemptuous of the will of the American people to defend themselves.

“In particular, the CIA believes that it would have been unable to obtain critical information from numerous detainees, including KSM and Abu Zubaydah, without these enhanced techniques,” says the Justice Department memo. “Both KSM and Zubaydah had ‘expressed their belief that the general US population was ‘weak,’ lacked resilience, and would be unable to ‘do what was necessary’ to prevent the terrorists from succeeding in their goals.’

Indeed, before the CIA used enhanced techniques in its interrogation of KSM, KSM resisted giving any answers to questions about future attacks, simply noting, ‘Soon you will know.’”

After he was subjected to the “waterboard” technique, KSM became cooperative, providing intelligence that led to the capture of key al Qaeda allies and, eventually, the closing down of an East Asian terrorist cell that had been tasked with carrying out the 9/11-style attack on Los Angeles.


The Democrats are weasels, plain and simple.

Chris Simcox For Senate(AZ)!

WOW! This is GREAT news!
At last a real Conservative American to challenge the RINO McCain!
Simcox is the past President of The Minutemen... The group of volunteers that protected our border with Mexico.

If I lived in Arizona, you could bet your life, for Senator, I'd be voting for Chris Simcox!

From his website:
It's time to help put Arizona and America back on the right track by electing Chris Simcox to represent the Great State of Arizona in the United States Senate. As a grassroots, border security activist and founder of the original Minuteman Civil Defense Corps (MCDC), Chris has done more to make Arizona a safer and better place to live than most of the sanctimonious career politicians in Washington, D.C.

The citizen volunteer Minuteman effort led by Chris Simcox over the pastseven years has had a dramatic effect in bringing attention to the unlawful entry of drug and human traffickers over our porous borders and coastal boundaries.

These relentless, grassroots volunteers not only helped force our government to increase the overall number of Border Patrol agents dispatched to the U.S. / Mexico border, they also helped win the fight to begin construction of a 700 mile border fence, assisted Border Patrol with the apprehension of aliens illegally entering the U.S. from all over the world and directly caused the confiscation of tons of drugs destined for communities across the United States.

Chris Simcox and the Minutemen have done more than anyone in bringing attention to the embarrassing and deadly disgrace our southern border has become. Chris will be an unwavering supporter of strong border security in the Senate.

Now, seven years after having established the MCDC Minuteman movement as a leading organization for increased border security and illegal immigration reform, Chris Simcox continues to lead the law and order charge.

Along with other noteworthy advocates, Chris has continued his work at our state capitol, having successfully advocated for passage of Arizona's Fair & Legal Employment Act Initiative in 2008.

The initiative prohibits employers from knowingly and intentionally hiring undocumented workers by requiring the utilization of the Department of Homeland Security and Social Security Administration's e-verify internet based system to electronically verify employment eligibility. This simple step helps create more jobs for hardworking Arizonans.

As the bread-winner for a young Arizona family, Chris Simcox is resolute that Washington, D.C. must adhere to a balanced budget just like Arizonans do each and every day. The bureaucrats and politicians need to stop the spending binge as their approach of choice to get our economy on the right track.

Chris believes that politicians need to get out of the way and let American ingenuity work to mend the economic problems that big government programs helped create. When government programs forced banks to loan money to people to buy a house when they could not afford to pay for them, the economic catastrophe began in earnest.

More bureaucrats and politicians trying to force outcomes will not fix this nation's economic problems -- it will only make matters worse.

Chris is the candidate who understands that bailouts are not the answer.The housing and financial crisis in America can be fixed, but not by borrowing money from foreign governments and saddling our children and grandchildren with the debt. Government needs to get out of the way and let America's great entrepreneurial spirit thrive.

Chris would consider some of the more creative solutions, like one bill introduced by a Texas congressman that would suspend individuals paying federal income taxes for the better part of a year. This approach would cost less than the so-called stimulus bill and would do more to stimulate the economy than government could do by putting money back into the hands ofthe hard-working American people who earned it in the first place.

More than 60% of the over $1 trillion "stimulus" money will not spend until 2011 and beyond, so it is not too late to stop the insanity by sending representatives to Washington who will fight to stop this reckless behavior.

If you elect Chris Simcox to the United States Senate, he will help get America back on the right track while looking out for the interests of Arizonans from all walks of life and cultural backgrounds.

Chris has proven to folks across America that once he sets his mind on a goal, he comes up with the right solution. Numerous private and public leaders from across the Great State of Arizona have encouraged Chris to run for the United States Senate in 2010. Sending a common sense, conservative leader to Washington, D.C., is what's desperately needed at this critical time in our nation's history.

I like it! Go Chris!
And for all of you folks from 'The Grand Canyon State', get to the polls and vote for Chris Simcox!

Here's what Ben Smith from Politico had to say about Mr. Simcox v. McCain:
McCain facing 2010 primary
Ben Smith's Blog
Social conservatives tolerated John McCain as the party's nominee, but never trusted him, and he now appears to be facing a serious primary from the right in Arizona next year.

Chris Simcox, the founder of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps and a prominent figure in the movement to clamp down on illegal immigration, will announcing tomorrow at an event on the Mexican border that he's resigned from the group to run in the 2010 Senate primary.

From a forthcoming release:
"John McCain has failed miserably in his duty to secure this nation's borders and protect the people of Arizona from the escalating violence and lawlessness," Simcox said. "He has fought real efforts over the years at every turn, opting to hold our nation's border security hostage to his amnesty schemes. Coupled with his votes for reckless bailout spending and big government solutions to our nation's problems, John McCain is out of touch with everyday Arizonans. Enough is enough."

McCain was forced to abandon his own immigration reform legislation during last year's Republican Primary, a move that may have cost him substantial Hispanic support to which his record could have given him access.
So he's basically getting it from both sides on this one.

Simcox, with a national base and a high profile on the right, is well positioned to give McCain a serious local headache. He'll find some allies among the conservatives who recently took over the Arizona Republican Party from McCain's allies, and he has a national fundraising base.

Ammo Shortage... Real or Imagined?

"The National Shooting Sports Foundation has received numerous calls regarding shortages of ammunition.

Many of these callers have expressed concern that the supply of ammunition is not able to keep up with the current demand.

In order to provide the best information possible on the issue of ammunition availability, NSSF interviewed ammunition manufacturers across the United States."

Here's what they found out...


Is there truly a shortage of ammunition?

The shortage of ammunition is real and is caused by several factors including:
- A significant spike in consumer demand
- Law Enforcement demand for training and readiness
- Department of Defense demand for training and readiness
- Higher prices from commodities

What calibers are in the highest demand?
- The high demand for ammunition extends across caliber lines. The increase can be seen in most handgun, rifle and rimfire ammunition and on certain shot shell products such as buckshot.

What are manufacturers doing to keep up with demand?
- In order to help keep up with demand for ammunition, manufacturers are working at full capacity (24/7).

- It is believed that any ammunition shortage is likely a temporary issue; however, it will take time for supply to catch up with demand.

How long will it take for supply to catch up with demand?
- While it is believed that supply will be increasing, the great unknown is what demand will be later in the year.

- Since there is no way for manufacturers to predict how long consumer demand will be sustained at its current, unprecedented level, it is impossible for manufacturers to forecast the timeline for when the current backlog will begin to improve.

So that's the latest!

So... Are You A Right Wing Extremist?


Last week the head of HomeLand Security, Janet Napolitano, issued a 10 page document called;
Rightwing Extremism:
Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment

In the document, she virtually accused anybody of being against abortion, against gun control, against open borders, against big government, against the bailouts as being a 'right wing extremist'!

And she particularly dissed our returning service men and women as 'threats' that should be watched!

What a crock!
And this person is supposed to be keeping the homeland safe?
From who? From what?

She needs to be replaced with someone who has a brain. Doesn't matter if it's a person with a big brain or a small brain... ANY brain will do!
ANY brain would be larger that hers!

Here's what Jonah Goldberg had to say about it:

(Right) Winging It at the DHS
What’s the real threat to our country?
By Jonah Goldberg

The Extremism and Radicalization Branch of the Homeland Environment Threat Analysis Division of the Department of Homeland Security issued a report last week.

It’s called “Right wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.”

I had no idea there even was an ERBHETAD of the DHS working on the RECEPCFRRR.

Who among us doesn’t feel safer already?

The problem with it is that it makes little effort to document or demonstrate its contention that “extremist” groups are resurgent, that they are right-wing, or that they may be formed from the ranks of “disgruntled military veterans.”

Worse, it’s very sloppy about what qualifies someone as “extremist” in the first place. Basically, it’s fancy bureaucratese for: We’re guessing bad people will do bad things because the economy is bad and the president is black. But we have no real evidence.

For instance, the report insists that returning “disgruntled military veterans” from Iraq and Afghanistan are recruitment fodder for extremist and terrorist groups.

But, if you follow the footnotes, as John Hinderaker of the Powerline blog did, you’ll discover that, according to the FBI, only 19 Iraq or Afghanistan war vets have joined the “extremist movement” (and some of them may have lied about their service).

More than half of America’s 1.4 million active-duty military personal have served in Iraq or Afghanistan (and there are roughly 23 million veterans in the United States).

Any way you slice it, 19 yahoos amount to statistical noise so faint you would need one of those UFO-hunting dishes to pick it up.

My objection to the DHS report — and DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano’s thumbless grasp of why the report bothers people — isn’t that the agency is concerned with domestic terrorists. It should be, even though it rankles a bit that this administration is so squeamish to describe Islamic terrorists as “terrorists” but is promiscuous with the T-word when it comes to right-wing Americans.

The evidence that al-Qaeda & Co. are terrorists is widely available, but Napolitano boasts that she calls attacks such as those on 9/11 “man-caused disasters.”
She says she doesn’t want to fuel “the politics of fear.”

But her own department dubs nebulous and ill-defined groups of Americans as terrorists even though DHS has “no specific information” that they’re plotting any attacks.

My real objection to this report is that its source material amounts to “everybody knows.”

Everybody knows the right is full of whack-jobs, hatemongers, and killers, and if we don’t remain vigilant, bad things will happen.

Just look at the coverage of these tea parties.
To watch CNN, you’d think these were beer-hall putsches, as if emulating the Boston Tea Party and demanding less government were straight out of Mein Kampf.

I wrote a book on fascism which tried to show that what everybody knows isn’t necessarily true.

The idea that soldiers will return from war and become right-wing militants? Well, that has its roots in Fascist Italy, where veterans returned as black-shirted shock troops of “Il Duce,” Benito Mussolini.

The only problem with this theory is that what they clamored for was socialism — the socialism of the trenches! — and their leader had earned the title “Il Duce” as the leader of the Socialist Party.

The idea that American “hate groups” are right-wing and bristling with vets got new life with JFK’s assassination at the hands of a disgruntled vet named Lee Harvey Oswald.

Everybody knew right away that Oswald was an agent of “hate” — and hate was code for right-wing and racist.

Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren summed up the instantaneous conventional wisdom when he blamed the “climate of hatred” for Kennedy’s death. Everybody knew that the Right was involved.

There was just one inconvenient truth: Oswald was a Communist who, according to the Warren report, had “an extreme dislike of the rightwing” and had actually tried to murder a right-wing former Army general.

When Hollywood filmed the Tom Clancy novel The Sum of All Fears, it changed the real villains from jihadi terrorists to a bunch of European CEOs who were secret Nazis.

Because “everybody knows” that’s where the real threat lies.

Sen. John Kerry belonged to an organization of vets that considered assassinating American politicians. (Kerry denied participating in those meetings.)

Barack Obama was friends with, and a colleague of, a terrorist whose organization plotted to murder soldiers and their wives at a social at Fort Dix.

A young Hillary Clinton sympathized with the Black Panthers, a paramilitary gang of racist murderers and cop killers.

Bring that up and you’re a paranoid nutcase out of Dr. Strangelove.

But if you’re terrified of a bunch of citizens who throw tea in the water and demand lower taxes and less government spending, well, that’s just a sign of political seriousness.

Because everyone knows who the real threat to the country is.

Yeah, we know Jonah...
Everyone needs to read Jonah Goldberg's book, "Liberal Fascism"!

Are You a Right Wing Radical?

The lastest development in this 'social democracy movement' in America is about DHS head Janet Napolitano, sending out a letter to all law enforcement agencies that Right Wing Radicals are out there and be on the lookout for violent behavior from them!

Federal agency warns of radicals on right
9-page report sent to police

The Department of Homeland Security is warning law enforcement officials about a rise in "rightwing extremist activity," saying the economic recession, the election of America's first black president and the return of a few disgruntled war veterans could swell the ranks of white-power militias.

A footnote attached to the report by the Homeland Security Office of Intelligence and Analysis defines "rightwing extremism in the United States" as including not just racist or hate groups, but also groups that reject federal authority in favor of state or local authority.
"It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single-issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration," the warning says.

The White House has distanced itself from the analysis. When asked for comment on its contents, White House spokesman Nick Shapiro said, "The President is focused not on politics but rather taking the steps necessary to protect all Americans from the threat of violence and terrorism regardless of its origins. He also believes those who serve represent the best of this country, and he will continue to ensure that our veterans receive the respect and benefits they have earned."

The nine-page document was sent to police and sheriff's departments across the United States on April 7 under the headline, "Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment."

So the liberals are trying to tell the world that anybody that disagrees with them or their principles should be labeled as right wing radicals!

These guys are scared to death! They're looking in the shadows for conspiracies just like the Clintons did in the 90s! What a hoot!

You Might Be a "Radicalized Right-Wing Extremist" If…
By Michelle Malkin
What and who exactly are President Obama's homeland security officials afraid of these days?

If you are a member of an active conservative group that opposes abortion, favors strict immigration enforcement, lobbies to protect Second Amendment rights, protests big government, advocates federalism or represents veterans who believe in any of the above, the answer is: You.

Department of Homeland Security Sec. Janet Napolitano has turned her attention away from acts of Islamic jihad on American soil (which she now refers to as "man-caused disasters").

Instead, her department is sounding the alarm over an unquantified "resurgence" in "right-wing extremism activity."

On April 7, DHS sent a nine-page warning memo to law enforcement offices across the country titled "Right-wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment."

The report includes a sweeping definition of the threat:
"Right-wing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely.

It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration."

You cannot ignore the context or the timing of this DHS report. It's no small coincidence that Napolitano's agency disseminated the assessment just a week before the nationwide April 15 Tax Day Tea Party protests.

The grassroots events organized by fiscal conservatives, independents, Libertarians and, yes, even some Blue Dog Democrats were fueled by the "current economic and political climate" of bipartisan profligate spending and endless taxpayer-funded bailouts.

The growing success of the loose-knit movement has invited scorn, ridicule and fear-mongering from Obama's supporters. Liberal bloggers have likened the Tea Party movement to neo-Nazis, militias and even Weather Underground terrorists.

These attempts to demonize the Tea Party movement come on the heels of widespread conservative-bashing over the recent shooting sprees in Pittsburgh and Binghamton, N.Y.

Taking Hillary Clinton's advice to "never waste a good crisis," left-wing pundits and analysts have blamed the tragedies on everyone from Rush Limbaugh to Fox News to the NRA.

The DHS spokespeople I talked to on Monday insisted that the report was not a politicized document and that DHS had done similar assessments on "left-wing extremism" in the past.

But past domestic terrorism reports have always been very specific in identifying security threats -- such as the Animal Liberation Front and the Earth Liberation Front -- and very specific in identifying their methods and targets, including repeated physical harassment, arson and vandalism against pharmaceutical companies, farms, labs and university researchers.

By contrast, the Obama DHS report is an overarching indictment of conservatives. "Right-wing extremist chatter on the Internet continues to focus on the economy, the perceived loss of U.S. jobs in the manufacturing and construction sectors, and home foreclosures," the assessment warns.

When I asked DHS spokeswoman Sara Kuban to explain who was responsible for this "extremist chatter," she could not and would not name names.

Moreover, the report relies on the work of the left-leaning Southern Poverty Law Center to stir anxiety over "disgruntled military veterans" -- a citation that gives us valuable insight into how DHS will define "hate-oriented" groups.

The SPLC, you see, has designated the venerable American Legion a "hate group" for its stance on immigration enforcement. The report offers zero data, but states with an almost resentful attitude toward protected free speech: "Debates over appropriate immigration levels and enforcement policy generally fall within the realm of protected political speech under the First Amendment, but in some cases, anti-immigration or strident pro-enforcement fervor has been directed against specific groups and has the potential to turn violent."

"Potential to turn violent"?
So did the hysterical fervor whipped up by Capitol Hill over the AIG bonuses, which prompted ugly death threats from across the country. No mention here, though. Not "right wing" enough.

Nor will you see Obama DHS warnings to police and sheriff's departments about self-proclaimed bank terrorists such as Bruce Marks of the aggressive Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America or the mob activists of ACORN who have committed burglary, stormed corporate executives' homes and vowed to conduct "civil disobedience" by "any means necessary" in response to the "current economic and political climate."

If you can redefine dissenting opinion as "hate," you can brand your political opponents as "extremists" -- and you can marginalize electoral threats. "Antigovernment"? "Pro-enforcement"? "Disgruntled"? Feeling taxed enough already and "recruiting" and "radicalizing" your friends and neighbors through "chatter on the Internet"?

We are all right-wing extremists now.
Welcome to the club.

Hell, they want to silence anybody on The Right! Soon, it will be dogs, water cannons, tear gas and bully clubs!

Stay safe out there!

Re-Affirm Your Oath To The Constitution!

"These are the times that try men's souls..."

There has been a great deal of concern about the direction our great nation is headed.

We have elected a Marxist as our President and many feel he is selling America's sovereignty to the highest bidder. He has begun to nationalize the auto industry, the banking industry and threatens ALL CEOs of ANY company that is in financial difficulty.

He will not allow the free market system to work, rather he wants the government to own private enterprise and control every aspect of our economy and our lives.

He has apologized for America on foreign soil, demeaning our country, and the office of The Presidency. He has shown his affinity for America Haters and has bowed to foreign kings.

He has thrown out The Constitution and has begun to threaten our very existence as a nation of individuals!

On April 15, there will be Tea Parties held to protest the government's handling of our current fiscal situation, in towns and cities nationwide.

Tea Party Info

Tea Party Map

Enough with the Bailouts! Enough with the taxes!

Stop The Spending!

And, many are concerned that our President does not have America's best interests at heart and will attempt to disarm it's citizens and destroy our fabric of life.

So, also in the month of April, on the 19th, You may want to meet with like minded individuals to Re-Affirm your oath to The Constitution. Re-Affirm your oath as an American, to protect her from enemies foreign and domestic!

Or you can go to Lexington Green and take the oath along with other Oath Keepers.

Here's a sample of the oath from Oath Keepers

Declaration of Orders We Will NOT Obey.

Recognizing that we each swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and affirming that we are guardians of the Republic, of the principles in our Declaration of Independence, and of the rights of our people, we affirm and declare the following:

1. We will NOT obey any order to disarm the American people.

2. We will NOT obey any order to conduct warrant-less searches of the American people, their homes, vehicles, papers, or effects - such as warrant-less house-to house searches for weapons or persons.

3. We will NOT obey any order to detain American citizens as “unlawful enemy combatants” or to subject them to trial by military tribunal.

4. We will NOT obey orders to impose martial law or a “state of emergency” on a state, or to enter with force into a state, without the express consent and invitation of that state’s legislature and governor.

5. We will NOT obey orders to invade and subjugate any state that asserts its sovereignty and declares the national government to be in violation of the compact by which that state entered the Union.

6. We will NOT obey any order to blockade American cities, thus turning them into giant concentration camps.

7. We will NOT obey any order to force American citizens into any form of detention camps under any pretext.

8. We will NOT obey orders to assist or support the use of any foreign troops on U.S. soil against the American people to “keep the peace” or to “maintain control” during any emergency, or under any other pretext. We will consider such use of foreign troops against our people to be an invasion and an act of war.

9. We will NOT obey any orders to confiscate the property of the American people, including food and other essential supplies, under any emergency pretext whatsoever.

10. We will NOT obey any orders which infringe on the right of the people to free speech, to peaceably assemble, and to petition their government for a redress of grievances.

— And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually affirm our oath and pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

Oath Keepers

And, you can learn rifleman skills at the AppleSeed Program...

The Appleseed Program

"The Appleseed Program is designed to take you from being a simple rifle owner to being a true rifleman. All throughout American history, the rifleman has been defined as a marksman capable of hitting a man-sized target from 500 yards away — no ifs, ands or buts about it."

It's time to take a stand America!

Throw the bums out!

We Surround Them!

Have you heard about this?

I've been watching this story for a month or so now.
It seems to be growing like a prairie fire!

It all started with this Glenn Beck segment.

And, he is right. People do feel as if they're all alone. Why wouldn't they? Our President is selling American values to the highest bidder and taking over private enterprise at an alarming rate!

To my surprise, I found We Surround Them groups on MeetUp, FaceBook, on the NING social network site and several other places on the web. And, nearly all are devoted to Glenn Beck and his 9-12 Project.

I happen to think it's a great idea!
I'm just not so sure it has a solid base.

I attended the 'We Surround Them' event to watch Glenn Beck on 3 /13.

I was impressed with the turnout!
I wasn't impressed with the crowd rapidly filing out of the building before we had much of a chance to meet each other, or discuss any observations about the program.

I even joined a local group that sponsored the gathering but wasn't very impressed with their efforts either... but, that might be chalked up to differences in personalities, or maybe they were just plain overwhelmed with the response?

There are other groups devoted to upcoming Tea Parties as well! Some of the same folks as a matter of fact.

But I believe Michelle Malkin began the Tea Party Idea.

Some Tea Parties have already happened. I believe they had a crowd of 4,000 in Cincinnati, 5,000 in St. Louis, and over 5,000 in Orlando. There have been other smaller ones too, but I believe the 15th of April is when there will be a National Tea Party!

Can You Believe It!
A National Tea Party! Isn't that a hoot?
Folks are finally getting up off their dead asses and protesting about their government spending their 401Ks!

Doncha think it's a little late America?! I mean, the time to protest was BEFORE the election, dumbasses!

Now, with Glenn Beck leading the lemmings against Republicans and Democrats alike, they're out for blood! They want every Congressman's head on a stick! And they want George Bush's head on a stick too! Most of them agree with Obama! George DID IT!

It's so sad to watch as these poor misguided souls wander around looking for leadership and finding none! They're pouring their hearts out on the web to anybody that will listen, and nobody can help them!

They don't seem to realize that Mr. Beck is standing with a megaphone, in the median of a 10 lane freeway, with Republicans and Conservatives zooming in one direction, and Democrats and Liberals zooming in the opposite direction!

As they are drawn to Mr. Becks call, they fail to realize the reality of just how dangerous the environment of national politics really is.

They're likely to just walk right out into traffic and get run over by one of the 'MACHINES'!

It gives new meaning to the phrase, 'look both ways'!

There are other groups as well. There's even a group planning to march on Washing on July 4th! It's called The March For Liberty!

I sure do wish these good folks all the best, but my gut feeling is that the well oiled Liberal Machine will chew them up and spit them out before they even get off the ground!

My advice to them was to protest in front of their Congressman's local headquarters at The State House. To raise hell at home. Vote the bums out of office! To turn out at the polls and VOTE THE BUMS OUT in 2910!

But they insist, 'time is short!', and, 'We must act now!'

I'm going to keep tabs on them and maybe even get more involved.
They all seem to be asking the same question... OK, Glenn, we watched your show and we listened to what you had to say and we joined these social gathering groups... so... What's Next?

I may have an answer soon...
Stay tuned!
