Obama Marched With Farrakhan, Zombie Photos From Berkeley Patriots Rally: I'll Be Back One Week From Monday

I'll be spending the rest of the day packing, resting and spending time with family, as I'm headed to Dulles Airport early tomorrow to catch a plane for a business trip. My computer time will be extremely limited over the next week, so I'll be back online a week from tomorrow.

But before I go, here's some interesting items which caught my eye this evening.

Barack Hussein Obama talks about attending Louis Farrakhan's Million Man March, in this December 1995 article from Chicago Reader linked on Little Green Footballs.
"Obama took time off from attending campaign coffees to attend October's Million Man March in Washington, D.C. His experiences there only reinforced his reasons for jumping into politics.

"What I saw was a powerful demonstration of an impulse and need for African-American men to come together to recognize each other and affirm our rightful place in the society," he said. "There was a profound sense that African-American men were ready to make a commitment to bring about change in our communities and lives.

"But what was lacking among march organizers was a positive agenda, a coherent agenda for change. Without this agenda a lot of this energy is going to dissipate. Just as holding hands and singing 'We shall overcome' is not going to do it, exhorting youth to have pride in their race, give up drugs and crime, is not going to do it if we can't find jobs and futures for the 50 percent of black youth who are unemployed, underemployed, and full of bitterness and rage.

"Exhortations are not enough, nor are the notions that we can create a black economy within America that is hermetically sealed from the rest of the economy and seriously tackle the major issues confronting us," Obama said.

"...This doesn't suggest that the need to look inward emphasized by the march isn't important, and that these African-American tribal affinities aren't legitimate. These are mean, cruel times, exemplified by a 'lock 'em up, take no prisoners' mentality that dominates the Republican-led Congress. Historically, African-Americans have turned inward and towards black nationalism whenever they have a sense, as we do now, that the mainstream has rebuffed us, and that white Americans couldn't care less about the profound problems African-Americans are facing."
Earlier in the article, Obama the Divider also said:
"The right wing, the Christian right, has done a good job of building these organizations of accountability, much better than the left or progressive forces have. But it's always easier to organize around intolerance, narrow-mindedness, and false nostalgia. And they also have hijacked the higher moral ground with this language of family values and moral responsibility."

Finally, our friend Zombie has posted another great photo essay from the rally in support of the Berkeley Marine Recruiting Station

Have a great week and weekend! See ya next Monday!

Non Political Music Break

For a little music break, here's Birthday Boy Eric Clapton, doing his rendition of B.B. King's "Every Day I Have the Blues."

Algore To Ride To Democrats Rescue?

London's The Telegraph, (via Gateway Pundit) is reporting that "Chicken Little" algore is being looked upon by many Democrats to be the savior of the party.
"Plans for Al Gore to take the Democratic presidential nomination as the saviour of a bitterly divided party are being actively discussed by senior figures and aides to the former vice-president.

The bloody civil war between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama has left many Democrats convinced that neither can deliver a knockout blow to the other and that both have been so damaged that they risk losing November's election to the Republican nominee, John McCain.

Former Gore aides now believe he could emerge as a compromise candidate acceptable to both camps at the party's convention in Denver during the last week of August.

Two former Gore campaign officials have told The Sunday Telegraph that a scenario first mapped out by members of Mr Gore's inner circle last May now has a sporting chance of coming true."

I'm not buying the idea that algore will make everything right for the Democrats. True, this could be one election Gore may be able to successfully steal. Even so, I don't count on the Hildebeast to go quietly. This was supposed to be her coronation. She was entitled to be the Democrat nominee and the President after putting up with her in-heat hubby and living among those "sh*tkickers" in Arkansas whom she looked down her nose at. Even if she is pushed aside for Gore, I wouldn't be surprised if she goes Tanya Harding on him. Remember how there was no love lost between the Clintons and Gores.

Likewise, many of Obama's supporters will resent him having to step aside for Gore.

Liberals for years have decried the "lack of civility" in politics. The Clintons and their acolytes have been the biggest practitioners of this. They've spent the last fifteen years dividing the nation among racial, economic and partisan lines, all while blaming the "vast right wing conspiracy" for the divisions they, the Left, polished like a fine piece of wedding silver. Now, it's come back to bite them, as they're dividing their own party.

More chips and salsa, please!

Rev. Wright's Million Dollar Home In A "Typical White Neighborhood"

As with most Left wingers, the alleged Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Barack Hussein Obama's Minister of Hate, is an example of do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do hypocrisy.

The web has been ablaze with the revelations that the racist preacher who railed against "white folk's greed" is having a $1.6 million home built for him (Gateway Pundit).

But wait, there's more! Sweetness & Light has discovered through Wikipedia that Wright's new neighborhood in Tinley Park, Ill., is only 1.92% black!
Demographics
As of the 2000 census[4], there were 48,401 people, 17,478 households, and 12,793 families residing in the village. The population density was 3,236.9 people per square mile (1,250.0/km²). There were 18,037 housing units at an average density of 1,206.2/sq mi (465.8/km²). The racial makeup of the village was 93.16% White, 1.92% African American, 0.13% Native American, 2.38% Asian, 0.02% Pacific Islander, 1.11% from other races, and 1.27% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 4.13% of the population.

The top five ancestries reported in Tinley Park as of the 2000 census were Irish (25.5%), German (23.1%), Polish (19.7%), Italian (14.3%) and Dutch (5.3%).[5]

The median income for a household in the village was $61,648, and the median income for a family was $71,858. Males had a median income of $50,595 versus $34,401 for females. The per capita income for the village was $25,207. About 1.1% of families and 2.5% of the population were below the poverty line, including 2.5% of those under age 18 and 3.6% of those age 65 or over.

S&L also notes that this is in contrast with the Black Values System which Obama's race-obsessed "church" is based on.

Typcial liberalsm, one set of rules for the "masses," which don't apply to the "elites."

Berkeley Protests = $210,000 In Police Overtime; Vets Boycott Berkeley Golf Course For Golf Tournament

That's as reported on Inside Bay Area.com today (additional commentary in parenthesis).
"In the last six weeks, the city of Berkeley has spent more than $210,000 on police overtime to try and keep the peace during protests at the U.S. Marine Corps recruiting center and Old City Hall, a police official said Thursday.

Police spokeswoman Sgt. Mary Kusmiss said police department overtime from Feb. 12 to March 22 was $210,814.13. The city spent roughly $93,000 Feb. 12 during an all-day protest at Old City Hall that drew about 2,000 (so-called) anti-war protestors and military supporters, she said.

Since then, CodePink, The World Can't Wait: Drive out the Bush Regime and other (Communist front) groups have continued to hold weekly protests at the Marine recruiting center.

Police have continued to monitor those protests, which in recent weeks have become increasingly raucous. Kusmiss said anywhere from three to 80 officers have been working overtime during the various rallies, with the most officers on Feb. 12.

On Monday, police arrested four CodePink protesters during a rally to mark the 4,000 U.S. troop death in Iraq."


Notice the MSM never informs the public who is really behind these groups. One more question for the media, if these groups are so "peaceful," how come they do things that get themselves arrested?

Then it gets really upsurd, when Susie "Medusa" Benjamin was interviewed.
"On Thursday, Medea Benjamin, co-founder of CodePink, said there is no a need for so many police in front of the recruiting station. "It's a bit of an overkill," she said. "I don't know who they are protecting."

...Benjamin said the weekly protests will continue until the recruitment center leaves town. "If people are concerned they should put pressure on the (recruiting center) landlord to break the lease," Benjamin said. "The recruiters are the ones who should have never come in to Berkeley. If whomever in the city wants to stop the protests, they should encourage the recruiters to leave. Democracy comes at a price."

Spoken like a true Stalinist!

Just who in the Hell do you think you are, Susie, telling the Marines to leave? This isn't Castro's Cuba, which you think is "Heaven." For your information, it's the Marines and other military members who pay the price every day, fighting for the freedoms we enjoy and your skanky group of pinkos abuse every day!

And while were on the topic of money and Berkeley, I saw where participants in the pro-Marines rally last weekend handed the Berkeley Chamber of Commerce a note stating $25,000 was spent in neighboring cities. Now, a group of veterans is looking elsewhere to put on their annual golf tournament.
"Meanwhile, a group of golfing war veterans is so miffed at the Berkeley City Council for taking a swing at the Marines that they are relocating their annual fundraising golf tournament outside Berkeley.

The Lafayette War Veterans Golf Committee will move its third annual golf tournament from Tilden Park Golf Course in Berkeley to a still-undecided location, the group announced Thursday."

Keep up that economic boycott! Let's still push hard in lobbying for the "Semper Fi Act" in Congress.

Move America Forward Asks US Attorney To Investigate If Berkeley CA Is Impeding Work Of Marine Recruiters

This comes from Melanie Morgan and Move America Forward:
"A law firm representing a pro-troop organization has sent a letter to the U.S. Attorney in San Francisco asking the federal government to investigate whether the Berkeley City Council’s official anti-Marine position and encouragement of anti-war groups to “impede” the work of Marine recruiters constitutes a breach of law. If the City Council violated the law, the letter asks the U.S. Attorney to prosecute the perpetrators.

The letter was drafted by the attorney for pro-troop organization Move America Forward, which is the nation’s largest pro-troop grassroots nonprofit.

The correspondence also voices concerns that the Berkeley Police were unresponsive and negligent to public safety during a protest the group organized in Berkeley on Feb. 12, 2007. The original copy has already been mailed and an additional copy will be hand-delivered Monday morning with a press conference immediately following.

'We will explore every avenue to ensure that Marine Corps personnel are not harassed for simply doing their jobs, especially not by a city government,' said Catherine Moy, Executive Director of Move America Forward."

Melanie also writes:
"It is long past time for the US government to involve itself in finding, arresting, and prosecuting those people responsible for attacking our service men and women involved in recruiting efforts to protect our country.

...It is our fervent hope that other government entities will do take action in jurisdictions where assaults, battering, slapping, and other civil rights infringements have taken place."

Yes! It is about time these series of coordinated attacks by the Left against military recruiting centers come up for investigation. And it isn't just recruiting centers the Left is attacking. Another war memorial, this time, a memorial to a St. Louis man killed in the Iraq War, can be added to the long list war memorials attacked over the last few years. (from Gateway Pundit).

And for those of you who think throwing paint bombs and rocks (as what happened last week in Washington DC) or a bunch of terrorist sympathizers like World Can't Wait chaining themselves to the door at the recruiting center in Berkeley is "free speech," think again.

From Title 18, Part 1, Chapter 115, Section 2388 of the United States Code:
"(a) Whoever, when the United States is at war, willfully makes or conveys false reports or false statements with intent to interfere with the operation or success of the military or naval forces of the United States or to promote the success of its enemies; or Whoever, when the United States is at war, willfully causes or attempts to cause insubordination, disloyalty, mutiny, or refusal of duty, in the military or naval forces of the United States, or willfully obstructs the recruiting or enlistment service of the United States, to the injury of the service or the United States, or attempts to do so— Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both. (b) If two or more persons conspire to violate subsection (a) of this section and one or more such persons do any act to effect the object of the conspiracy, each of the parties to such conspiracy shall be punished as provided in said subsection (a)."

To put it bluntly, the Left's reign of terror against military recruiters, war memorials, now church services and violence against pro-military supporters needs to be stopped now and punished severely!

Let's hope this letter and action by Move America Forward bears fruit which will protect our recruiters.

FLASHBACK: December 1998, Congressman Elect Mike Thompson Supported Clinton's Bombing of Iraq

Mike Thompson, one of Saddam Hussein's Three Stooges whose propaganda trip to Iraq for purposes of opposing the Iraq War originally supported action against Iraq.

In December 1998, that is.

In a December 17, 1998 Santa Rosa Press Democrat article where current Out of Iraq Caucus member Lynn Woolsey sounded like a hawk when it came to Bill Clinton's bombing against Iraq, then Congressman Elect Thompson express similar support.
"Congressman-elect Mike Thompson, a St. Helena Democrat who will succeed Riggs in the House, issued a statement supporting the attack. 'Diplomatic pressures have clearly been exhausted,' he said."

Apparently, National Security is only a priority when a Democrat is President. When a Republican is President, Democrat's strategy is to undermine the war for the purposes of political destruction. They will even take money from enemies of this nation to embarrass a Republican President.

That's why the Democrat Party is the Party of Treason, and also why Reps. Thompson & McDimwitt should be expelled.

Napa Valley Democrat's 2002 Iraq Trip Paid For By Saddam Hussein

Napa Valley Democrat Congressman Mike Thompson had a 2002 propaganda trip to Saddam Hussein's Iraq paid for, by the Dictator Saddam Hussein.

From AP, via Yahoo news:
"WASHINGTON - Federal prosecutors say Saddam Hussein's intelligence agency secretly financed a trip to Iraq for three U.S. lawmakers during the run-up to the U.S.-led invasion.

An indictment in Detroit accuses Muthanna Al-Hanooti of arranging for three members of Congress to travel to Iraq in October 2002 at the behest of Saddam's regime. Prosecutors say Iraqi intelligence officials paid for the trip through an intermediary.

In exchange, Al-Hanooti allegedly received 2 million barrels of Iraqi oil.

The lawmakers are not mentioned but the dates correspond to a trip by Democratic Reps. Jim (a.k.a. "Baghdad Jim") McDermott of Washington, David Bonior of Michigan and Mike Thompson of California. There was no indication the three lawmakers knew the trip was underwritten by Saddam."

No indication the three knew the trip was paid for by Saddam? Yeah right! These members of the Party of Treason knew damn well who their master was and all willingly served as Saddam's Three Stooges, who stood on enemy soil and denounced President Bush as a liar.

Need more proof on how Congressman Thompson is a traitor? He, along with another treasonous Democrat from California, Anna G. Eshoo, introduced the bill to ban waterboarding on his friends, the terrorists.
"It’s time to make a clear statement for the world to hear and understand, and for the Bush Administration to obey: Waterboarding is torture and Americans will not participate in it," Thompson said.

Hey Rep. Thompson, why are so screaming so loud on behalf of the people who want to kill Americans? I didn't hear a peep out of your mouth when Americans were getting their heads sawed off by the same al-Queda terrorists you want to protect.

If Nancy Pelosi really meant to keep her promise of the "most ethical House," McDimwit and Thompson would be expelled from the House, charged with treason and jailed. But just like William "Cold Cash" Jefferson, she needs as many votes as she can get. That's why "Do Nothing Nancy" will go down as the worst Speaker of the House in U.S. History.

That's also why the Democrat Party is the Party of Treason and should be voted out of the majority this fall.

Video Of Violent Peace Thug Slapping Female Blogger Released

Our good friend Melanie Morgan, who was the first to break the story of a violent attack on a female blogger in West Chester, PA, has a link to the video of the attack on her site.



This is the creep who attacked blogger Skye at MidnightBlue, John Meicht of West Chester, PA, part of the Peace-In-Name-Only crowd (PINO). Look at the mean snarl on this bully's face. Doesn't resemble a person of peace, or act like one.

Meicht also taught a class at Widener University in Spring 2007 which can only be described as a typical "blame America first" class (hat tip tgslTakoma), which is listed on page 10 of the course descriptions.

The American West Settlement vs. Genocide (New)
Monday,
9:30
Instructor: John Meicht
(10 weeks)
A clash of cultures existed in the United States from 1803 to 1890. America was transformed from an agrarian society into an industrial one during the Industrial Age. Emphasis for this course will be the time period from 1865 to 1890. Decide for yourself—Is it “America the Beautiful” or “America the Ugly”?

In West Chester's local paper, Karen Porter of the PINO group is in full spin mode, claiming their poor friend Johnny was provoked.

"Porter said she wasn’t there when Saturday’s incident occurred but was told a woman in the victory movement group put a camera in the face of a peace protester, and the peace movement protester pushed it away."

Karen Porter must have taken lessons from the "O.J. Simpson School of Blame The Victim, The Perpetrator's Innocent." Skye's video proves Porter is a liar, as the camera was clearly out of the moonbat Meicht's face. Poor little Johnny just couldn't handle the truth about being accurately called a traitor and exploded.

I got news for you, John Meicht. Real vets don't stand against America, just like real men don't hit women.

Mecht should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for his unprovoked assault on Skye. Nothing justifies a bully like that creep hitting a woman. These violent assaults by the PINO crowd need to stop and stop now!

Marin Appeasment & Injustice Coalition Member Refers To Islamofascist Terrorists as "Freedom Fighters," Likes Obama's Racist, anti-American Preacher

Every now and then, I take a look at the Marin Independent Journal online to see what's happening in the area which (until almost 6 years ago) I called home for 11 years.

True to form, the IJ wrote an editorial on the fifth anniversary of the start of the Iraq War, "Five Years of War - When Will It End?" It is an indicator that, among liberals, freedom isn't worth sacrificing for or defending. It would have been nice for the IJ Editorial Board to condemn the hostile and violent treatment by the Peace-In-Name-Only crowd (PINOs) toward Staff Sgt. Jason Eck, an Army recruiter in Marin County. But that would have been expecting too much of a paper which has looked down on those who join the military as simply without other career options.

So, on the IJ comments section, I made references on how Marin County should quit emboldening the terrorists with premature talks of withdrawal and get behind our troops, who should be allowed to complete their mission and return home victorious. I also took on the rantings of a paranoid tin-foil hat loon.

It appears I'm missed in Marin County by the loony Left. Enter Jim Geraghty, known to his PINO comrades at the Marin Appeasement & Injustice Coalition as "Jimmy Justice," but known here as "Jimmy Injustice." Here's his response.
"Mooned in Marin (what?????)

Leader of the print more money moonbat Marinites:

Whoops, a little mistake, we already found out that it was not the Iraqis that attacked us, it was the House of Saud. But, you never mention the reason why they attacked. Which was U.S. terrorism in the Middle East. Minor details, nothing to worry about. If Fox news didn't cover it it wasn't important for the "useful rightwing idiots" to consume.

But like Obama's minister, Jeremiah Wright, said we don't like to talk about those things in polite company, so we keep burying our heads in the proverbial right wing sand pits of delusions and attack anyone who dares mention the fact that the US foreign policy is a charade, and our history is based indigenous genocide and slavery.

But hell, who's paying attention to those minor details. Run up another false flag, declare mission accomplished and keep sending our youth into battle.

Pretty soon Mooned, you won't have a place to hang your aluminum hat. After the Bear Sterns' recent run, how far away could a total collapse be, the fed doesn't have enough printing presses to keep up, the house of cards is...broken under your hero's watch...dumb da dumb dumb!

Keep banging those drums though, you flock needs you now, more than ever."

Followed by (and pay attention to the second paragraph):
"WoW Mooned, since moving to the Washington area you got much better with your spin. Maybe the glow of Rovarian rhetoric is rubbing off on you.

I believe it was Bush's invasion of Iraq that emboldened the Middle Eastern Freedom Fighters. What would you do if a foreign country invaded here, thank them and give them flowers? Lol, you are a funny old man.

Let's just bring our boys home, Chevron is making enough money, and Halliburton will be sending bills for the next twenty years. Bush is staggering around like a deer caught in the headlights, lets just put him out of his misery and IMPEACH.

He has failed at everything: war, economy, deficit energy, health care, jobs, predatory lending You name it and he failed at it. the biggest joke this country has ever seen.

The only thing he was any good at was the Washington Press Corp Dinner roast! Then Colbert tore him a new one. lol"

I won't take time to write out a rebuttal to Jimmy Injustice's fallacious rants. My time and energy are better suited towards other pursuits. In reality, actually got a good laugh out of his unintelligent (and nonsensical) critique of the Bush Administration, America and that evil concept to him and his comrades known as capitalism. I'm sorry to disappoint him, as since arriving in the DC area, I've yet to meet Karl Rove. If you're reading this Karl, because you make the liberals so unhinged, lunch is on me.

But there were two items I had to point out that further illustrate how the so-called Peace movement isn't about "peace." It is a movement based solely on hating America and sympathizing with America's enemies as "victims" rather that perpetrators.

"Bush's invasion of Iraq that emboldened the Middle Eastern Freedom Fighters." Like Mama Moonbat, Cindy Sheehan (fatboy Michael Moore called them "The Minutemen"), Jimmy Injustice is calling al-Queda terrorists in Iraq "freedom fighters." Did al-Queda free Iraq from Saddam Hussein and his evil sons? No. America liberated the Iraqi people from the tyranny of a brutal dictator (no thanks to Democrats and the PINO crowd). The so-called "freedom fighters" want to take Iraq back to an oppressive Taliban style government. Don't forget, Jimmy and the MPJC bunch honored Osama bin Laden on their website by naming a book club after him, after their favorite "freedom fighter" listed his favorite bash-America books.

That brings up Obama's Minister of Hate, the alleged Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who is loved by Jimmy and his buds in the loony-Left for preaching the Gospel of Hating Whitey and America. There's only one problem. If America is such the racist nation that the alleged Rev. Wright (and Jimmy Injustice concurs) they why did we fight a Civil War to liberate African Americans who were held in slavery? How could a racist nation liberate over 50 million Muslims in Afghanistan & Iraq from extreme fundamentalism and oppression? I thought liberals hated religious fundamentalism.

If Wright were a real Christian minister, he would see no difference between a black racist and a white racist. Both are equally as evil under God's eyes. However, Wright is a bigot, as is his fellow phony minister and America-hater: Fred Phelps of the Westboro Inbred Cult.

Just as the above ministers are phony, the so-called "peace movement" is a sham, a fraud grown from the garden of white lies. It's a collection of pro-Communist, America-haters and military loathers who resort to violence in many instances and then scream that they're the victims. I've seen it all before, and they don't fool me.

Finally, Jimmy, to clarify one point I'm a patriot. If you want to see a moonbat, may I suggest you walk over to the nearest mirror and take a look.

Blogger Assaulted By So-Called "Peace" Activist in West Chester, PA

My blood pressure is really high right now, after reading what happened to fellow blogger Skye at Midnight Blue this past Saturday.
"A beautiful day for a rally that turned ugly when a peace protester crossed the line from ugly remarks to violence. Snarky retorts, name calling and mischaracterizations by the CCPM (Chester County [PA] Peace Movement) are common place events in my 7 month documentary of this rally. Yesterday crossed the line, when I was struck twice by a peace protester. I can deal with all the above, but will NOT tolerate any form of violence against my person. I am consulting legal advice on this matter."

Here's a photo of the attacker, an angry piece of pond scum named John who claims to be a Vietnam Vet (maybe an NVA vet for all I know).

I have a message for you, John, you little punk ass coward:

"REAL MEN DON'T HIT WOMEN!"

You wouldn't even last one second face to face with someone your own size, because you'd be too busy hauling ass out of there (and soiling your britches at the same time) in fear.

The Peace-In-Name-Only crowd at CCPG also posted a video on YouTube from Saturday, and is spinning one lie after another, claiming poor little John was "harassed and provoked," while calling Skye a "provocateur." Note that they conveniently left out the footage of this coward's assault on her. Probably so they can spin more lies about police brutality.

This has gone too far! The recruiting station attacks, police here in DC pelted with paint bombs (and told to stand down by their politically corrected police chief), a Catholic Easter Mass is attacked by phony blood squirting Iraq War protesters and this assault. This movement is not about "peace" and I refuse to label it a "peace movement." Law enforcement at the local and federal level needs to do something about these fifth columnists and prosecute their acts of assault, sedition and sabotage when they occur.

I wish Skye the best in her legal efforts against this creep and she can count on this blog (as well as many others of us out there) for friendship and support.

US Killed In Iraq Hits 4,000--Media and Liberals Shamlessly Celebrate

UPDATE: Note to Mike Belgrove. I didn't post your comment because I see you've spent all day littering other blogs with the exact same statement of how you're "sick at your stomach" that 4,000 soldiers have been killed fighting terrorists in Iraq. You say you're a member of the Army, why should I take your word for it? Unless you prove otherwise, I have my doubts, as the Left has been known to employ one lie after another in attempts to aid the terrorists. How do I know you're not some phony soldier like Jesse MacBeth or Scott Beauchamp? The soldiers I've talked to who've actually served want victory, not forced retreat. They know who the enemy is and it sure as hell ain't George W. Bush!

Nuff said.
****

The Associated (with Democrats) Press (via Yahoo news), as they have every time the casualty rate goes up, is reporting this morning how the milestone of 4,000 US soldiers have been killed in Iraq.

"The overall U.S. death toll in Iraq rose to 4,000 after four soldiers were killed in a roadside bombing in Baghdad, a grim milestone that is likely to fuel calls for the withdrawal of American forces as the war enters its sixth year."The number is different, but the reaction among liberals is the same

Even before the number of casualties hit 4,000, some brain dead little Leftie posted a comment here a couple days ago about how Bush supposedly led more Americans (soldiers) to their deaths than were killed on 9/11.

For a more realistic view of the casualties in previous wars, see this great post by Gateway Pundit, who shows how the number of casualties in Iraq over five years is lower than previous battles throughout American history.

"Iraq War (5 years)-- 3,990, Batan Death March (one week)-- 10,000, Battle of Guadalcanal (186 days)-- 7,099, Battle of Guam (20 Days)-- 3,000, Operation Market Garden (9 days)-- 3,664, Battle of the Bulge (41 days)-- 19,276, Battle of Iwo Jima (39 days)-- 6,821, Battle of Pusan Perimeter (61 days-Korea)-- 6,706

Did you know also that 5,119 soldiers were killed during the Clinton years? GP also points that out. Yesterday, after a nice Easter service, my family and I went with my father-in-law to an old cemetery in a small Northern Virginia town where a relative was buried. In the cemetery also was a memorial with several graves of Civil War dead, a war which 600,000 Americans on both sides were killed.

The bottom line, Democrats, liberals and the MSM have no respect for the sacrifice our men and women in Iraq and Afghanistan have made overseas. It becomes another number to state, "this is bad, we should get out." Using that mindset, not only would slavery never been ended, the United States might have never been reunited after the Civil War. Islamofascism wouldn't exist today, because Imperial Japan and Nazi Germany would exist in its place. Why? The United States would have surrendered after the Battle of Guadalcanal, because more Americans had been killed in fighting there than were killed on December 7th at Pearl Harbor. And just why did FDR invade North Africa to go after Field Marshall Rommel and the Germans in November 1942? Germany didn't bomb Pearl Harbor, Japan did.

That's the flawed logic of a liberal, they've taken the freedom they love so much for granted they aren't willing to pay the price to defend and keep it.

If that's the case, get used to heavy chains around your ankles, because the white flag liberals will lead this nation to slavery.

"America Was Brought To Berkeley"

That was an astute observation by one Bay Area FReeper who was one of many patriots who stood in support of the United States Marines Recruiting Station which has been under a town sanctioned attack by Code Pinkos and other anti-military organizations.

The San Francisco Chronicle has more, including the three photos posted below.
"Berkeley hosted a decidedly different kind of protest today when about 400 flag-waving, leather-clad, pro-troops bikers roared into town to show their support for an often besieged Marine recruiting center in the city.


"I'm here because I support my Marines," said Steve Bosshard, a retired San Francisco police officer who came from Santa Rosa. "I don't like what Berkeley's done. They don't realize the effect it has on the troops."
...Today's demonstrators, most of whom are military veterans, said they were protesting the Berkeley city council decision in February to waive the amplified-sound permit fees and provide reserved parking in front of the Marines' office for Code Pink, an anti-war group that stages protests at the recruiting center.

...The group that organized today's protest, Eagles Up, had to pay for their permit.

What a slap in the face to people who served their nation in peace and war to have to pay for the right to free expression, while these Leftist, America-hating scum don't pay one red cent.

To all patriots there today, I say from the East Coast, Great Job!

UPDATE: My friend Syncro over at FreeRepublic has a great after action report, along with more photos from the rally yesterday.

Portland "Peace" Marchers Hold Banner Calling for "Fragging" Of Military Leaders

Last year, it was defecating on a burning American flag, burning an American solider in effigy and marching with a banner reading "F**k the Troops."

Well, Portland Lefties who claim to "support the troops but not the war" marched with this sign, "Put the gun down or turn it around" (pulled off Indybay).
Essentially, they're calling for soldiers to "frag" or kill their officers.
And these people claim to represent "peace?"

Eagles Up! To Defend Berkeley Marines

One week after the positive and successful rally and march in Washington DC to show support of our troops overseas, Eagles Up! will be in Berkeley, CA to show support for the Marine Recruiting Station at 64 Shattuck Square.

As you recall, the Marines have been the target of a sabotage campaign by Code Pinkos and the Revolutionary Communist Party front group World Can't Wait, endorsed by the anti-American/anti-military Berkeley City Council.
From their website:
"We expect a massive crowd to send a message to the city of Berkeley, Code Pink and any other anti-military group that Americans are sick and tired of their hateful, dangerous behavior,” said Doug Lyvere, Eagles Up organizer.

Melanie Morgan, popular radio personality and chairwoman of Move America Forward and Catherine Moy, MAF’s executive director, will address the crowd assembled Saturday to show support for the Marine Corps officer selection office that “peace” protesters have attacked. Move America Forward is the nation’s largest pro-troop organization and has been on the frontlines against the anti-war crowds harassing our Marines in Berkeley.

"We encourage all American patriots to stand with Eagles Up and the Marines,” Morgan said. “I hope to see Move America Forward’s supporters at the muster to show our love and support for our troops.”
Here's wishing I had a plane ticket to be back in the Bay Area for this! But I'll be keeping a close eye on this as accounts come in. If you're anywhere near Berkeley around noon tomorrow and want to show support for the Marines, by all means ( I urge you) go!

Also, if you haven't yet done so, please go over to WorldNetDaily and read Melanie's excellent column "Happy Liberation Day" about the Left's protests on Wednesday which were nothing but violent anarchy, as garbage was strewn in front of the Berkeley recruiting center and the DC recruiters were violently attacked with rocks and paint bombs (excerpts below).
Instead of condemning the violence against recruiters and peaceful patriots, the Democrats' top contenders, Clinton and Obama, joined in the radicals' cries to get out of Iraq.

"I will end this war," Obama said of one of his first acts if elected president. "It is the right thing to do." Clinton said the country "needs a commander in chief who will end the war in Iraq and bring (the troops) home."

And they call themselves leaders? Their policies would reopen the rape rooms of Iraq and lead to slaughter of thousands upon thousands of Iraqi people who now see hope for the first time since Saddam Hussein ruled with an iron fist. A premature withdrawal would significantly jeopardize American security as well.

...The lesson of March 19 is that the "peace" movement is desperate and so are its sad-sack leaders, Clinton and Obama. The lefties are resorting to violence where they once had thousands of dopes to follow their white-flag brigade.
Well said!

Troop Haters Dump Red Paint On Alaska Veterans Memorial To Protest War

As part of the Left's temper tantrum on the fifth anniversary of the start of the Iraq War, Leftist scum dumped red paint on a Veteran's Memorial in downtown Anchorage, Alaska.From Anchorage Daily News:
"Vandals dumped a bucket of red paint on a downtown veterans memorial this morning, the fifth anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, in what police suspect was a symbolic act of protest. Passers-by spotted the blood-toned paint on the Anchorage Veterans Memorial, in the Delaney Park Strip off I Street, during the morning commute and reported it to police. The soldier's helmet was blood red, with the paint dripping down to the ground below."
Police say they are investigating the vandalism as a crime, and the responsible party could be facing charges of malicious destruction of property or felony criminal mischief, depending on what it cost to clean up the paint, he said."
This was also posted on Military Families Voice of Victory, who also listed attacks on recruiting centers across the nation yesterday. In one response, someone claiming to be from DC Police Department is in CYA mode over Chief Lanier's order to do nothing to protesters who attacked a DC Recruiting Center.
"The Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) must enforce local law and the rights afforded to every person under the United States Constitution. The law allows MPD personnel to make arrests only when there is probable cause to do so. The MPD cannot arrest every peaceful demonstrator for the sake of a few rowdy participants. There has not, and will never be a directive from Chief Cathy Lanier or a member of her command staff to do nothing when the law is being broken -MPD Public Information Office on March 20th, 2008"
Let DC Police Chief Cathy Lanier know (phone number is (202)727-4218 e-mail is cathy.lainer@dc.gov) that throwing paint and rocks is not "peaceful protest." It is vandalism and it's also assault, especially when it hits police officers/the public. She needs to do her job and protect the public, the officers she leads as well as the men and women of our Armed Forces from these violent anarchists of NewSDS, Funk The War and International ANSWER.
Is this what the Left calls "supporting the troops?" Recruiting stations and war memorials across America are vandalized or destroyed. They always remind us how they "support the troops, but not the war." Yeah, they're really full of it!

Obama's Racist Preacher Guest At Clinton White House

Ben Smith on The Politico blog writes about a photo produced by defenders of Obama's racist church showing that the Sanctified Racist Rev. Jeremiah Wright was a White House guest of then-President Bill Clinton.


Keep in mind that this was during the Monica Lewinsky scandal, after Clinton admitted to (in Wright's words) "ridin' her dirty."

Then there's this video making the rounds on the Internet of Rev. James David Manning of ATLAH World Ministries, whom I posted last year talking about Obama "having a white mama." Here, he calls Obama a "mack daddy" and uses slang term for a woman's breasts (from the pulpit) to describe where he first saw Obama's name.

This is going to be interesting, I've got the snacks ready to enjoy watching the Democrat Civil War.

Iraqis Celebrating 5th Anniversary of Iraq Invasion Thank Bush & America--Democrats Still Invested in Defeat

"And one of the guys just said hey, if it wasn’t for God and Mr. Bush, we wouldn’t even have this conversation in this bus. We’d either be in jail, persecuted, so that brought a while entire silence. Afterward there was a laughter because it was true.”

Those were the words of Ali Al-Faham, an Iraqi who is living in Everett, Washington describing a debate on a bus during a visit to Iraq a few months ago, in an interview with Seattle station KIRO-TV.
"Iraqis living in Everett told KIRO 7 Eyewitness News this five-year anniversary is actually a time for them to celebrate the future of their country.

Local Iraqis told KIRO 7 ...that five years ago when the war began they danced in the streets. They celebrated again when Saddam Hussein was arrested. On the fifth-year anniversary they’re not dancing in the streets, but they said the emotions are just as strong."

Another Iraqi, Rabab Alali, told the station she thought the war was a mistake at first, but has since changed her mind.

"We can vote, we have a government we can vote for, and we can go anywhere, do anything we want,” Alali told KIRO. “I would say that to all Americans we never forget their help. Like even the future, the history will say that America came to Iraq and helped the people get their freedom."

Meanwhile, the two Democrat candidates, Hillary Rotten Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama, refused to acknowledge the success of our troops and the "Surge," playing to their base who were in the streets yesterday attacking recruiting centers and protesting the removal of Iraq's totalitarian regime.

Leftist Bastards Attack DC Recruiting Center, Again--Officers Told By Police Chief To "Do Nothing"

From FreeRepublic.com, tgslTacoma writes that the 14th and L St., NW recruiting station has come under attack by anything-but-peaceful Leftist protesters today, in response to the fifth anniversary of the Iraq War's start.

"Cops are clearing the street of cars so the violent radicals can march down the street to the recruiting center unencumbered.

Crowds have been throwing rocks, paint bombs in GLASS bottles, water bottles, and anything else they can throw.

MPDC Chief Cathy Lanier was there before the attacks, ORDERING HER OFFICERS to DO NOTHING if the station was attacked."

Photos below were taken off the FR.thread.

Police officers were assaulted with paint bombs by the scum.

This is absolute crap, when the police chief handcuffs her officers and prevents them from doing their job. The DC officers (who are a great bunch, we met so many of them Saturday) deserve better than a leader who bows to political pressure and lets anarchists run the city.

Where is the FBI and Homeland Security? I see also that another recruiting station in Milwaukee was attacked. The Indymedia leftist are bragging about that, while some in the Bay Area media who have their head stuck far up their gluetous maximus think it's just a misguided few.

This needs to stop!

Mass MSM Obasms Over Obama's "Race" Speech

I didn't watch "the Speech of the Century," meaning Barack Hussein Obama's speech on race and distancing himself from his America-hating racist preacher, Jeremiah Wright. I did read transcripts though and don't see anything there that tries to bring racial unity and claim he does not endorse his minister's bigotry.

But the liberal MSM, desperate for the next Democrat rock star candidate was convinced. In the process, there was massive Obasms in the liberal media over Obama's speech.

Examples of MSM Obasms:

The Boston Globe:


"After a year of speaking of racial reconciliation in mostly hopeful, uplifting terms, Barack Obama today offered a fuller, deeper, and more personal testament to the nation's tormented racial history and how to begin to overcome it.

...Like Mitt Romney's address on his Mormon faith last year, Obama's speech was delivered in a presidential setting -- in the very shadow of Independence Hall -- and invoked common values and historic truths; it showcased Obama more as a national teacher, a role that particularly flatters him, rather than simply an eloquent speaker.

As such, it added gravitas to a candidacy that some have found superficial; and it also served to quell the controversy-of-the-moment over Obama's long association with Rev. Jeremiah Wright, the pastor whose statements Obama condemned in no uncertain terms while offering a reasonable explanation for why he's sticking by his church and its former minister."


US News & World Report:


"Political strategists today were quick to parse how Democratic Sen. Barack Obama's sweeping speech about race and the American experience may affect his campaign to become the nation's first black presidential nominee.

But among African-American scholars and leaders, the post-speech talk wasn't of polls and focus groups but of witnessing history. Obama's words—about slavery, black anger, white resentment, and the imperative to move forward—harked back, they said, to those of Martin Luther King Jr. and Abraham Lincoln, and they deserve a similar place in history.

"This was his kairos moment," said the Rev. Alton Pollard, dean of Howard University's School of Divinity, using the ancient Greek word that characterizes moments that can alter destiny. It was, he said, Obama's particular "moment in time," and one that required him to lead."


Then there's the paper al-Queda loves to read, the New York Slimes, and their editorial:
"There are moments — increasingly rare in risk-abhorrent modern campaigns —when politicians are called upon to bare their fundamental beliefs. In the best of these moments, the speaker does not just salve the current political wound, but also illuminates larger, troubling issues that the nation is wrestling with.

Inaugural addresses by Abraham Lincoln and Franklin D. Roosevelt come to mind, as does John F. Kennedy’s 1960 speech on religion, with its enduring vision of the separation between church and state. Senator Barack Obama, who has not faced such tests of character this year, faced one on Tuesday. It is hard to imagine how he could have handled it better.

Mr. Obama had to address race and religion, the two most toxic subjects in politics. He was as powerful and frank as Mitt Romney was weak and calculating earlier this year in his attempt to persuade the religious right that his Mormonism is Christian enough for them."

There you have it. Obama has been compared to some of this nation's greatest leaders and even called a "Profile in Courage."

Why is that? I don't see courage or leadership in Barack Hussein Obama. I see a slick, liberal politician who has been caught in an episode that could cost him his political career and he'll do anything he can to save it. Last Friday, he claimed he knew nothing about his minister's hate speech and then today said, "Did I ever hear him make remarks that could be considered controversial while I sat in church? Yes." At the same time, he wants to claim these were just cherry-picked snippets of Wright's sermons.

Who does Obama think the American people are, a bunch of fools?

I have no doubt that not only did Barack Hussein Obama sit in some of those controversial sermons, he agreed with them.

What more can be said when he accused our military of killing civilians in Afghanistan last year? Obama refuses to wear a the American flag pin on his suit coat lapel. Then there's the infamous photo below, how he did not hold his hand over his heart during the National Anthem.



Is this disrespect towards America influenced by Jeremiah Wright? I'd bet on it!

Obama has a New Black Panther party page on his website (notes Gateway Pundit). What does that have to do with healing the divide among the races? Far from being a uniter on race, Sweetness & Light writes how Obama was one of the first to call for the firing of Don Imus for the idiotic comments he made last year.

If Wright's words offended Obama, why didn't he leave the church? Would you attend, get married at, baptize your children and give money to a minister and a church that didn't promote the values you believe in? I'll speak from recent personal experience. My family and I visited a church near our new home in the Herndon, VA area. After one visit, I didn't care about going back because several of the church's Left wing political views were obvious. That desire to never return was strengthened when I learned Congressman Jim Moron told people at the church for an anti-Iraq war rally in 2003 the only reason the US was invading Iraq was for Israel. His anti-Semitic comments were not condemned by the minister or others in attendance that night.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a great civil rights leader because he did not come from resentment, but hope. He rightfully looked beyond color and dreamed that one day we would judge people "by the content of the character not the color of their skin." Unfortunately, resentment has replaced Dr. King's message of hope. Jeremiah Wright, Barack & Michelle Obama are part of those foisting resentment and division among races. America does not need a continuous reminder about slavery or to be told that slavery is our "original sin." I nor anyone else I now, have never owned a slave, Senator. We fought a civil war, passed laws and fought a supposed "war on poverty" to overcome slavery and Jim Crow. But that hasn't satisfied the resentful race hustlers like Rev. Wright, who look for racism in hurricanes, crack addiction and the prison population.

No, Barack Hussein Obama doesn't offer hope. Instead, it's more of the same old division game liberals have played either by class, gender or race. The only reason America seems, as the New York Slimes says, wrestle with race, is because liberals keep bringing topics like race and gender up!

To show the difference between the MSM coverage of Obama and George W. Bush, read what Gateway Pundit also notes on how Bush was continuously skewered over speaking at Bob Jones University, and Bob Jones wasn't even Bush's pastor.

Need More Proof The Wilson / Plame Controversy Was Contrived For Partisan Purposes?

Hillary Rotten Clinton showed up at a campaign event in Philadelphia to talk about preemptive surrender to Islamic terrorists in Iraq with some key advisers, according to Sweetness and Light.

Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame Wilson.

Is there any more evidence we need to show how the Plame/Wilsons were as phony as a three dollar bill? The whole "my wife the covert CIA agent was outed" was a bunch of crap. Both of them were committed liberals, not the innocent whistleblowers trying to expose the supposedly corrupt Bush Administration. This phony scandal was contrived by Democrats for purely partisan reasons and the Liberal MSM went along as willing accomplices. The Wilson's rode this bull for all the 15 minutes they could milk out of it.

If there was any justice, Joe Wilson and his wife would be in jail for perjury and "Scooter" Libby would have been vindicated. Unfortunately, this whole mess is another example of when the Bush Administration decided to play nice with the Democrats, who use this phony scandal for all the political mileage they could get.

One Final Thought About Marin County Recruiting Story...

I have one final thought which occured to me today which I wanted to share about the Marin County recruiting story I blogged on yesterday.

A couple of years ago, there was a state proposition (Prop 85) that would have required parental notification for minors to get an abortion. In far-Left Marin County, the measure was opposed by 76.2 percent of the voters. In other words, these Marin voters think teenage girls who get pregnant are smart enough to make an important decision that affects not only them, but the life they are carrying inside them. However, if a young man or girl near or at adult age is interested in joining the military, these same liberals do everything they can to try and discourage that person (in many cases, with the aid of local school districts) from serving their nation during a dangerous time.

Does anyone else see the hypocrisy?

So much for "choice" that liberals love to lecture the rest of us about.

Marin County's Disgraceful Contempt For Military Recruiters

For all it's wealth, as well as their talk of "diversity" and "democracy," people in Marin County, California sure take the freedoms they claim to embrace for granted.

Just look at how they treat the people who defend their freedom, the military. The Contra Costa-Times (& Marin IJ) details Marin's contempt for military recruiters in a story I found upon reading my Marin blogging friend, Bookworm Room.

"Staff Sgt. Jason Eck has been flipped off, cussed at and told to get out of town for doing his job.

The abuse hasn't deterred the two-time Iraq war veteran from donning his uniform, sliding behind the wheel of his government-issued Chevy Malibu and hitting the road almost daily in search of new soldiers.

"...We're fighting to give the Army a good name in Marin County,'' said Eck, a 27-year-old Brooklyn native. "It's really tough.''

Just 53 Marin County residents enlisted in the armed forces in 2006, giving the affluent and famously liberal county of 249,000 people the lowest enlistment rate of any county its size in the nation. For that matter, it had the lowest rate of any county with more than 50,000 residents.

...In the North Bay, when the academic year began in the fall, Eck braced for little to come of his recruiting efforts at the two Marin County high schools in his territory.

After all, he said, none of last year's seniors had expressed even the slightest interest in enlisting. Many teachers and administrators at best had seemed to tolerate his presence on campus, he said.

Elsewhere around the county, Eck had received "tons of dirty looks'' while driving or walking. One passer-by yelled "get the hell out of here'' and punched Eck's car on a downtown San Rafael street.

"A lot of people just don't believe in the (Iraq) war,'' Eck said. "So, they pretty much are going to try to avoid a recruiter -- like I have leprosy or something.''
So much for the "diversity" Marinites brag about! One of the reasons I'm so glad to be out of that cauldron of hypocrisy and anti-Americanism. Marin's liberals are so contemptible they have more sympathy for a treasonous Johnny bin-Laden from Fairfax, CA than the people who preserve their right to be idiots.

The problem with Marin County isn't just the 1960's mindset, it's that the true believers of that failed ideology are running local governments and the school systems, making Marin government schools nothing but Leftist re-education camps. Go to elementary school and you get multiculturalism training and global-warming skits performed in class. In Marin secondary schools, activists from the local anti-military hate groups bring military deserters into schools for one-sided lectures against joining the military (in violation of US Federal Code Title 18, Chapter 115, Sec. 2388). Others across the county allow students to hold supposed "anti-war" rallies during class times. Don't forget how Marin County's Public Schools developed a blame-America first curriculum on the first anniversary of 9/11.

Private schools aren't much better, Marin Academy has teachers take students to rallies held by hate-America groups, as well as presentations by Angela Davis, who aided in the killing of a Marin County Judge.

Given this kind of hate towards this nation and the military being pumped into these impressionable youngsters, is it any wonder why Marin ranks even below San Francisco in rates of recruitment?

Who are Marin's liberal politicians (when they're not speaking at anti-America rallies or condemning ICE agents) gonna call if (God forbid) al-Queda decided to attack the Golden Gate Bridge or their luxury homes in Tiburon and Sausalito?

Marin liberals prove once again to be what I always thought they were, a bunch of selfish, ungrateful hot-tubbers who take but give nothing back to a nation that has given them so much.

On a sidenote, at the so-called "peace rally" held in Marin on Saturday, I wonder how many "9/11 Was An Inside Job" signs or "Arab Sympathizer" stickers (as reported here last year) the Marin IJ ignored in their coverage.

Jeremiah Wright's New Parishioner(?), Cindy Sheehan

Barack Hussein Obama's "spiritual leader," the alleged Rev. Jeremiah Wright may have a new parishioner willing to drink his Kool-aid of bigotry, none other than Mama Moonbat, Cindy Sheehan.

The fading star of the anti-America movement took time out of her busy campaign schedule (meeting with the Muslim Brotherhood & posing with white supremacists) to write a screed praising Wright's treasonous sermons on the loony Left's AfterDowningStreet website, reports Sweetness & Light (excerpt below).
"....Let’s parse the Rev’s statement.

“We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye.”

Yes, on December 7th, 1941 (another day that will live in infamy), a US Naval base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii was attacked by Japan. On that day, 2338 American service personnel were tragically killed, but there was little of what our Pentagon calls “collateral damage,” civilians killed. As a matter of fact, during WWII, Japan killed very few American civilians. However, the US military command in the Pacific killed hundreds of thousands of Japanese civilians in aerial bombings and with the use of the new WMD; H-bombs. General Curtis LeMay informed future Secretary of Defense, Robert McNamara (who was under LeMay during WWII), that if the US had lost they would have been tried as “war criminals.” The loss of innocent life in Japan was numbered in the hundred of thousands and I don’t hear Senator Obama denouncing those acts of cowardice.

....I sit here behind my computer screen in solidarity with Rev. Wright. Not only do I not denounce him, but I support him in telling the truth. I wish Senator Obama would recall how he once stood for truth. A desk in the oval office that has been corrupted by years of calumny is not worth selling ones soul for."

As does her new found spiritual mentor, Mama Moonbat shows no understanding of history. Why were the atomic bombs, as horrible as they were, dropped? Simple, to save millions of American and (yes) Japanese lives!!!! As we came closer to Japan, the fighting grew deadlier out of desperation, especially on Iwo Jima and Okinawa. Civilians would kill their families because Japanese propaganda falsely claimed they would be eaten by the invading Marines. There were suicide attacks on soldiers and Navy vessels. What would have happened if the Allies had invaded the Japanese islands? Casualties in the millions on both sides and the war would have been prolonged. As horrible as using the atom bomb was (and it was not an H-bomb, Ms. Cindy) it prevented the loss of those millions of Japanese as well as American lives and President Harry Truman was 100 percent correct in making that difficult decision.

Sheehan and Wright also fail to realize that Japan had also been working on secret chemical weapons to send over to cities on America's West Coast by balloon. If we had not used the atomic bombs, there's no telling what Japan might have been able to do.

The idea of war is to win, not play nice with a brutal enemy. Our nation was attacked on December 7th, as we were on 9/11. So, we had an obligation to protect our people by ending the war with victory as swiftly as possible. We didn't wake up one day and decide to incinerate hundreds of thousands of Japanese just for the hell of it. Anyone who believes we did is a complete idiot and doesn't have any understanding of history.

Wright and Sheehan are obviously blind to the supposedly innocent Japanese and their brutal Rape of Nanking or the wanton murder at least 250,000 Chinese civilians suspected of aiding Jimmy Doolittle's Raiders in April 1942. America treats captured prisoners of war much better than the Japanese did the American soldiers in the Bataan Death March, or the untold numbers of Allied POW's who were beheaded with a swing of a sword.

But then, facts are lost on the Sheehans and Wrights of the world.

Good News From Tacoma WA, Patriots Outnumber WCW Commie Crowd!

Remember a couple of days ago when Michelle Malkin posted a warning being circulated about protests against military recruiters in Takoma, Washington?

Well, today the patriots showed up in force to defend the recruiters!

From KING 5 News:
About 150 people -- those opposed to the Iraq War and those supporting it -- gathered noisily outside a Tacoma Mall office building on Saturday.

A group known as World Can't Wait (founded by the leader of the Revolutionary Communist Party) had organized an anti-war protest to mark the coming fifth anniversary of the Iraq War. But long before their protest was scheduled to begin, counter-protesters arrived.

The counter-protesters surrounded an office building that houses military recruiting offices, which anti-war protesters had said they planned to "shut down." They shouted "God bless our troops" and waved American flags.

As the two groups faced off, dozens of police officers, including some in full SWAT gear, served as a buffer zone. They formed a human line to divide the groups. But there were no arrests or injuries.

"They don’t appreciate our soldiers and what they do for our freedom," said Cheryl Ames.

...Protesters held up photos of Iraq detainees tortured at Abu Ghraib prison in Baghad. (because WCW sympathises with al-Queda scum, M.I.M.) They also laid out 281 pairs of shoes on the sidewalk in front of the building, including 81 pairs of combat boots that carried tags bearing the name of a U.S. military member killed in Iraq who listed Washington as his or her home state.

The protesters said the 200 pairs of shoes represented the 200-to-1 ratio of the Iraqi-to-American death rate (where'd they get those numbers???). But the act was met with a volley of insults.

Warnings for military families to avoid the mall had been circulating for days, since some recent protests, including one at the Port of Olympia, have seen increased violence."
Score another one for the good guys!

One of the people protecting the recruiting center wrote on FreeRepublic.com:
"What a pathetic turnout the anti-military protesters had. They at best had 50 people, all college age punks, probably from Evergreen State Col the most liberal campus on the west coast. The Support the Troops side had at least 3 or 4 times their number, including about 25-30 of the coolest leather clad bikers I ever saw.

At The mall it was business as usual, full of shoppers stimulating the economy with their hard earned dollars. If the protesters goal was to interrupt commerce, they failed miserably. They also failed to shut down the recruiting office. The office they were in front of was closed anyway. The Army recruiter around the corner of the building was open for business, and even gave out donuts and coffee for the Support the Troops people. And for the military being ordered to stay away? No Way! There were many many young men walking around with military haircuts, many of who walked over and thanked us for what we were doing, several even staying with us. Many more of their families honked as they drove by our line of flags. And the Police did a fantastic job keeping the anti-war goons confined to a small area near the recruiting station, making sure they could not block access to the opened office or cross onto Mall property.

My message the anti-military punks is this: Tacoma is a Military town, and damn proud of them. Go protest some place else you losers.

Great job there! Just like here in DC today (coverage below), the message is being sent to these terrorist sympathizing leftists like WCW & Code Pinko, never again will you get away with disrespecting those who serve our nation.

Gathering Of Eagles & Others Rally & March For Troops In DC

It was a great sight on a beautiful Saturday afternoon as hundreds of patriots from around the nation gathered in Washington DC to show support for our troops and to say "never again" to the Left's attempts to smear our troops and use violence against them.

Marching up Constitution Avenue, towards the Capitol Building.

A sea of Red, White and Blue...
And then ending on the Mall.
The day started at the base of the Washington Monument, as members of Gathering of Eagles, Eagles Up, Move America Forward and others came up to the microphone.

Melanie Morgan, chairperson of Move America Forward, spoke about the investigation into the Left's escalating violence towards military recruiters, saying they've also alerted the Justice Department, Homeland Security and others to who are threatening and also perpetrating violence on recruiters.

"We will confront Code Pink, International ANSWER, Funk the War, World Can't Wait anytime, anyplace in America," she said. "This is not 1968 it's 2008."

Gold Star Mom Debbie Lee also spoke and asked other Gold Star Family Members to come up and be recognized.

One of those Gold Star Family Members was Laura Youngblood, whose husband Travis was killed in Iraq on July 21, 2005. He was killed when a terrorist hiding in a mosque set off an IED. This was while Laura was 7 months pregnant, in addition to raising a five-year old son. Also, Laura noted she lost an uncle on 9/11 who was a firefighter.
"He wasn't going to let his five year old son fight a war that he (Travis) could win," she told the crowd. She closed by saying, "I'd rather be the widow of a hero than the wife of a coward."

A Marine who just returned from Iraq....
...as well as an Air Force member also spoke to the crowd, thanking them for the support and that the men and women fighting the war on terror appreciate it very much. The Air Force member said, before his return to the United States, he was in a hangar with a bunch of Marines. None of them, he said, wanted to go home until the mission is finished.

Did you hear that Harry Reid? Nancy Pelosi? Hillary Rotten Clinton? Barack Hussein Obama?

Other sights and signs from the rally...
"Never again" was a rallying cry heard often throughout the day.
This man played patriotic music on his accordion (and did a great job too).

The start of the march. Even a busload of schoolchildren from Bakersfield, CA came and joined in the march.
A not-so subtle message to three traitors who make a habit of undermining our military.

The groups are planning another rally in April to show support for Gen. David Petraeus as he comes to Washington to give testimony before Congress. Those in attendance were urged to come and bring more people with them.

And that we will do!

Jonn from This Ain't Hell was there also, unfortunately, our paths didn't cross.

UPDATES BELOW - MAF Releases New Ad, Chronicles The Violent Sedition & Sabotage Of So-Called "Peace" Protesters

Our friends at Move America Forward have released this new television ad, illustrating the violence of supposedly peaceful anti-military, anti-America hate groups who claim to "support the troops but not the war."



And no, these are not isolated incidents either. MAF has also chronicled a long list of attacks on military recruiters and the violent activists behind them.

CNSNews has more on this topic at their site. Melanie Morgan writes about these attacks on military recruiters at WorldNetDaily.

Our law enforcement officials need to get serious and start cracking down on this sabotage. The refusal to do anything about it will only embolden these groups, and their actions will become more outrageous in their efforts to hand a victory to al-Queda by defeating us at home.

****
UPDATE - Proving how true the MAF report is, a few Code Pinkos decided to disrupt the press conference today and harass several of the participants. In disrupting the event, these Pinkos show how much disdain they have for free speech.

And to illustrate how disconnected the liberal MSM is, we have Josh Richman who claims to have "dissected" the MAF report and thinks it's no big deal.
"Those who commit civil disobedience, vandalism, arson or bombings should be prosecuted, but painting everyone with the words or actions of a demented few is idiocy. Sometimes cretins at either end of the political spectrum say too much, but that’s the freedom we enjoy here — deal with it, embrace it, revel in it.

All of this “debate” — really just empty rhetoric — from both sides during the height of the Berkeley recruiting flap is just a distraction. Substantive discussion about foreign policy has been eclipsed by silly semantics.

When I was out there covering the protests outside Berkeley City Hall on Feb. 12, I saw a few moments in which people on the two sides actually started talking to one another and listening to what each other had to say. That’s what we should be striving for, not the blustery crap documented in MAF’s report or contained in some of the comments on this blog."

Uhhh, yeah, right! I have a news flash for Josh, it's more than "a demented few" who are attacking recruiting centers and they're more than just isolated incidents. Let me provide him with a little education from my times on the trenches in the Bay Area. Show up with a group to counter-protest at one of these hate-America rallies and a swarm of people come up you to screaming obscenities, spitting, throwing things and tearing signs out of your hands. These are some of the things I've seen and experienced with other Bay Area patriots as we've stood up for our troops and our nation. We've also seen these "peace demonstrators" carry signs with anti-Semetic rhetoric as well as violence towards our troops and Commander in Chief.

Has Josh taken the time to scour the web and find out about the people behind these so-called "peace groups," their history of anti-Americanism and sympathies to extremist causes?" I'll bet he didn't know Code Pinko's co-founder, Susie "Medea" Benjamin, once said living in Castro's Cuba made her feel like she'd "died and gone to Heaven." I'll let Josh go to Google and find out who Code Pinko gave $600,000 to back in late 2004. After that, he can look up the extremist history of those who founded World Can't Wait.

Or, maybe he'll just shrug and think that's no big deal either. Anyway, the gauntlet is at his feet.

More On Barack Hussein Obama's Bigoted Minister

Here's a clip making the rounds on the web of Barack Hussein Obama's "minister" Jeremiah Wright of Trinity United Church of Christ. As you know, Trinity is a "church" that is "Unashamedly Black" and urges " a non-negotiable commitment to Africa" (not America).



From ABC News, via Hot Air.

"The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing ‘God Bless America.’ No, no, no, God damn America, that’s in the Bible for killing innocent people,' he said in a 2003 sermon. 'God damn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is
supreme.
'

In addition to damning America, he told his congregation on the Sunday after Sept. 11, 2001 that the United States had brought on al Qaeda’s attacks because of its own terrorism.

'We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye,' Rev. Wright said in a sermon on Sept. 16, 2001.

'We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards. America’s chickens are coming home to roost,' he told his congregation."

No wonder Michelle Obama has never been proud of her country. No wonder Barack Hussein Obama accused American troops last year of murdering civilians in Afghanistan. That is how they think because their so-called spiritual leader is a frothing racist who preaches sermons of hate. Would you want to take your children to a church where the pastor takes the Lord's name in vain and also exclaims how "God's sick of this shit" during one of his anti-American rants?

And this is the possible Democrat nominee for President?

Jeremiah Wright is an insult to the pulpit and the title of Reverend. Instead, Wright is like Fred Phelps, nothing but a bigoted, America-hater whose message is far removed from anything in the Bible.

Some In MSM Cover For Switzer, Saying It's "Human Nature"

Yahoo News has linked this evening to an absolutely absurd story about the downfall of former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer from the Philadelphia Inquirer, "A Costly Date for Spitzer, But Not So Surprising, Scientists say."

The gist of the story-it's not Eliot's fault he cheated on his wife and has a $4,000 hooker habit, it's just human nature.
"Why would someone as rich and powerful as Eliot Spitzer put his family, his job and his promising future on the line for an alleged $4,000 date with a prostitute? Is this pathological or inherent in human nature?

Scientists says it's more likely to be the latter. They attribute this kind of behavior to natural promiscuity combined with opportunity - along with a risk-taking personality common to men like Bill Clinton and John F Kennedy. It's what makes them seek office and what makes us want to vote for them.

Psychologist Christopher Ryan, author of "Sex in Prehistory," says the desire for sex with more than one person has always been there - for leaders and followers alike. "The desire is not a function of status or power - it's a question of availability."

What's relatively new to the human race, he said, is the ability to exercise power and the connection between power and sex.

That's because, for most of human existence, there was only so far a man could coerce others when food was essentially free and hard to hoard. And until relatively recently, sex with multiple partners was the norm. "It would have been very unusual 100,000 years ago for a person to have one sexual partner for 30 years," said Ryan in an interview from Barcelona."

This article is another example of the typical hand wringing and excuse-making by the MSM and liberal elites when a politician of their background preys like a tomcat on interns, state & federal employees, or prostitutes. I heard it so many times when I've listened to the radio the last couple of days from several callers. "What's the big deal? What he does in his private life is his own business."

Not when it's breaking the law.

Unless I'm wrong, I don't think the caveman era was "relatively recently." This author and the reporter seem to not grasp the fact that, for centuries, it was the norm that couples lived in monogamous relationships and didn't behave like animals in the wild. Part of that has to do with the development of a code or morals over the existence of mankind to create order, instead of anarchy. The Ten Commandments, for example, states that one should not commit adultery. Our wedding vows for centuries use the phrase "forsaking all others." They don't include the phrases "as long as it's convenient" or "until human nature takes over."

There's a lot more involved also than just a desire for sex. In several of the cases mentioned in the above article, (JFK, Clinton and probably Spitzer) its not just "human nature" that they cheated on their spouses. I believe sex addiction is an explanation. Not just because of the "risk," but also as a drug to cover up insecurities, etc which they refused to have treated by a professional. A common phrase used by people in recovery programs is that an addict is an "egomaniac with an inferiority complex." So, they reach out for alcohol, drugs, food, money, sex anything to make them feel better. Except it ends up becoming a bottomless pit. Lives are destroyed, families and reputations are ruined because the addict selfishly puts his needs above everyone else and acts in insane ways to get them met. Paying $4,000 for a prostitute (and almost $100,000 over a number of years) is pure insanity, never mind that it's illegal and also risky from a health standpoint. That's as crazy as the rock star or athlete who made a fortune over his lifetime and either shot, snorted or drank it all away.

I'm not trying to make excuses what Spitzer did either. What I'm saying is there comes a time when he should have been an adult and taken some personal responsibility for his life and sought help if he had a sex addiction problem or maybe gone to counseling if he had a marriage problem. But that's difficult to do when the media and pop culture are too busy rationalizing such behavior, as well as promoting our oversexed society. We saw it when the MSM downplayed B.J. Clinton's sexcapades as "it's his personal business, or covered up JFK's affairs with several women, including the mistress of a mobster.

And all that excuse making for Eliot Spitzer by the MSM only enables that kind of behavior to continue in others.

Negative War Reporting Encourages Terrorist Insurgency in Iraq

Whenever the MSM or a member of the Democrat Party has gone on a rampage against the war, declared it lost, or attacked members of the military as war criminals, many of us have openly accused them of aiding and abetting our enemies.

Well it's true! A paper written by a couple of Harvard economists has found evidence that proves al-Queda "insurgents" in Iraq have been emboldened by negative war coverage.

From USNews & World Report, via Yahoo News:
"The paper "Is There an 'Emboldenment' Effect in Iraq? Evidence From the Insurgency in Iraq" concludes the following:

--In the short term, there is a small but measurable cost to open public debate in the form of higher attacks against Iraqi and American targets.

--In periods immediately after a spike in "antiresolve" statements in the American media, the level of insurgent attacks increases between 7 and 10 percent.

--Insurgent organizations are strategic actors, meaning that whatever their motivations, religious or ideological, they will respond to incentives and disincentives."

This is similar to what happened during the Vietnam War. An August 1995 Wall Street Journal interview with former NVA Gen. Bui Tin credited the anti-military, anti-America "peace" crowd with the Communist victory over South Vietnam. Here's an excerpt from that interview:
Q: Was the American antiwar movement important to Hanoi's victory?

A: It was essential to our strategy. Support of the war from our rear was completely secure while the American rear was vulnerable. Every day our leadership would listen to world news over the radio at 9 a.m. to follow the growth of the American antiwar movement. Visits to Hanoi by people like Jane Fonda, and former Attorney General Ramsey Clark and ministers gave us confidence that we should hold on in the face of battlefield reverses. We were elated when Jane Fonda, wearing a red Vietnamese dress, said at a press conference that she was ashamed of American actions in the war and that she would struggle along with us.

Q: Did the Politburo pay attention to these visits?

A: Keenly.

Q: Why?

A: Those people represented the conscience of America. The conscience of America was part of its war-making capability, and we were turning that power in our favor. America lost because of its democracy; through dissent and protest it lost the ability to mobilize a will to win.

Think about that the next time the New York Slimes leaks more classified info or a Democrat leader downplays the success of the surge and claims the war can never be won.
