Let there be no doubt: Liberals side with terrorists by American Elephant

Democrats at Yearly KosNo, not all of them. Hopefully, not even most of them—although its getting seriously hard to tell, they’re so unreasonable. But either way, it’s far, FAR too many of them.

A couple of weeks ago, when President Bush commuted Scooter Libby’s extraordinary and partisan jail sentence (yes, it was extraordinary and partisan, any other American’s jail term would have been postponed pending appeal), the lunatics at Daily Kos were holding up his jury trial as fair, impartial and proof of his guilt.

Now that terrorist, Jose Padilla, has been found guilty by a jury of his peers, they call him an, “American Martyr to ‘War on Terror’ Padilla”. The scare quotes around “war on terror” are theirs. (HT/LGF) Yes, this is the same Daily Kos that all the Democrat presidential candidates just met with.

These people are insane. These people will destroy the country to get back in power if we let them. They so loathe President Bush, they are siding with terrorists and wishing for defeat in Iraq. And everyone needs to understand, as the Democrat presidential candidates showed us by all appearing at the Yearly Kos convention, and by enacting their agenda in Congress, these lunatics are running the Democrat party.



Thank God for Vice President Dick Cheney! by American Elephant

Vice President Dick Cheney

Yes, you heard me right. Such an unpopular sentiment these days, but it’s exactly the right one. Fortunately, our founding fathers—in their great wisdom—knew with such certainty that the majority is not always right that they made it a cornerstone of our republic. Now—just as with President Truman, and his even lower approval ratings—is precisely such a time.

And we are also very fortunate they knew with equal certainty that opportunistic politicians in Congress should have absolutely no powers to command war. Today is a perfect example. While Democrats are doing everything in their power, stooping to all manners of reprehensible new lows to get back in power, including undermining their country in war time for political gain, lying, leaking, and intentionally misrepresenting policy to the American people, (not to mention stealing top-secret documents, stuffing them in their pants and destroying them) —Vice President Cheney and President Bush are very busy doing everything in their Constitutional powers to protect the country and make sure another 9/11 never happens.

Thank God the adults are in charge!

The following is a portion of a must-read article by Stephen Hayes that gives a glimpse into the real Cheney, his essential work, and that lays bare the distortions and bald faced opportunistic lies of the reprehensible Democrats. Read the whole thing here.

Dick Cheney sat transfixed by the images on the small television screen in the corner of his West Wing office. Smoke poured out of a gaping hole in the World Trade Center’s North Tower. John McConnell, the vice president’s chief speechwriter, sat next to him and said nothing.Then, a second plane appeared on the right-hand side of the screen, banked slightly to the left, and plunged into the South Tower. “Did you see that?” Mr. Cheney asked his aide.

A little more than an hour later, Mr. Cheney was seated below the presidential seal at a long conference table in the Presidential Emergency Operations Center, better known as the bunker. When an aide told Mr. Cheney that another passenger airplane was rapidly approaching the White House, the vice president gave the order to shoot it down. The young man was so surprised at Mr. Cheney’s immediate response that he asked again. Mr. Cheney reiterated the order. Thinking that Mr. Cheney must have misunderstood the question, the military aide asked him a third time.

The vice president responded evenly. “I said yes.”

These early moments and all that followed from them will define Mr. Cheney’s vice presidency. He was aggressive in those first moments of the war on terror and has been ever since.

Mr. Cheney flew from the White House that night to Camp David, where he stayed in the Aspen Lodge, usually reserved for the president. It was his first night in the “secure, undisclosed location” that would eventually provide fodder for late night comedians. When he woke the next morning, Mr. Cheney asked himself two questions: When is the next attack? And what can I do to prevent it?

They were the questions on the minds of many politicians immediately following 9/11. “When, not if” quickly became one of many clichés to emerge from the national trauma of that day. Democrats and Republicans alike spoke of further terrorist acts on U.S. soil with certainty.

Sen. Bob Graham, a Democrat from Florida who has since retired but at the time was chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, described the intelligence after a CIA briefing days after 9/11. “There is evidence that Tuesday’s attack was the first phase of a multi-phase series of terrorist assaults against the United States, all under one umbrella plan,” he said. “It’s critical that we move with what capabilities we have today and strengthen those capabilities so that the next acts of this horrendous scheme against the people of the United States can be interdicted before it is executed.”

No wonder, then, that a Time/CNN poll, taken in September 2001, found that four out of five Americans believed another attack within a year was either “somewhat likely” or “very likely.”

That was nearly six years ago. To many, the threats no longer seem urgent. Critics speak of “the so-called war on terror,” and accuse the administration of exaggerating the threats. Zbigniew Brzezinski, a leading indicator of Democratic conventional wisdom, recently argued that the “culture of fear” created in response to the 9/11 attacks has done more damage than the attacks themselves.

But Mr. Cheney has not moved on. He still awakens each day asking the same questions he asked on Sept. 12, 2001. [read the rest]

August 15, 2007 — A surprising 94 percent of Americans say they are satisfied with their lives …The Harris Poll of more than 1,000 people reported the overall “satisfaction” level, defined as people who said they were either very or somewhat satisfied with their lot, was up 4 percentage points, from 90 percent two years ago. [read more]

This poll and others like it have been overwhelmingly positive for years now. The vast majority of Americans not only say they’re satisfied with their lives, but doing well financially to boot.

Home ownership is at an all time high, especially among minorities, wages are up, inflation and unemployment are historically low…worst possible thing anyone could do is vote Democrat.
