Daughters of Iraq and Other Good News

The Daughters of Iraq, a U.S. financed paramilitary force like the Sons of Iraq, but with girls, is being deployed against the counterinsurgency. The 21 women recently graduated from a weapons certification program will conduct searches of women and girls at checkpoints and similar duties. They will join the estimated 1000 other Iraqi women on the Police Force, but they will be armed with AK-47s with authorization to use them.

Al-Qaida and other lunatic Muslim terror groups have been using female suicide bombers of late because they've just about run out of male jihadis willing to blow themselves to smithereens, or the men left are all gay and have no use for the 72 virgins in paradise.

Iraq's Presidency Council has ratified a long awaited law opening the way to the first provincial elections held in four years. About two weeks ago, parliamentarians agreed to a draft proposal to submit to the Council that includes Iraqi President Jalal Talabani and two deputies. The main point of contention was the fate of the city of Kirkuk and the distribution of oil wealth which has yet to be resolved, but officials have promised to take up the issue again next year.

The Council has yet to officially sign the bill. Parliament will be asked to reinstate the provisions guaranteeing the representation and rights of Christians and other minorities. The law is also considered a major step to return underrepresented groups, especially the Anbar Sunnis, to the national political fold.

Joe Biden demanded at the VP debate last Thursday night to know what a John McCain/Sarah Palin administration would do differently than the Bush Administration has done in Iraq. Biden said McCain had been "dead wrong" on Iraq and that his policies on the Middle East, Afghanistan and Pakistan were no different from those of President George W. Bush. Gov. Sarah Palin then said the Obama/Biden plan for Iraq was to raise "a white flag of surrender".

I can't imagine why, with this much positive action taking place by the Iraqi government and people, would anyone want a different plan. Except, maybe to destroy the U.S. and relegate this country to the scrapheap of history. Barack Obama, who is not a Muslim, couldn't possibly want that.

US, France Kicked Hezbollah From Lebanon

We, the U.S. and France, kicked Hezbollah out of Lebanon. Did you know that? Joe Biden knows it. He even said so on camera during the Thursday VP debate, live and in front of God and everybody.

Here’s what the president said when we said no. He insisted on elections on the West Bank, when I said, and others said, and Barack Obama said, “Big mistake. Hamas will win. You’ll legitimize them.” What happened? Hamas won. When we kicked—along with France, we kicked Hezbollah out of Lebanon, I said and Barack said, “Move NATO forces in there. Fill the vacuum, because if you don’t know—if you don’t, Hezbollah will control it.”

Now what’s happened? Hezbollah is a legitimate part of the government in the country immediately to the north of Israel.
Has Hezbollah got the memo, yet? They'd be mighty interested, I'm sure, to know they have been "kicked out" if Lebanon by the U.S. and France because Hezbollah is still in Lebanon and since their arrival, have never left, by choice or by force.

Or, maybe we did and now they're back. Hey, it could have happened and no one noticed.

It's a pretty far-fetched conjecture, though, that France would cooperate in a military operation with the U.S. against a pro-Palestinian/anti-Israel entity. Never mind getting all of NATO involved in a non-Euro nation, but ...

Thusday Night - Who Survived and Who did Not

Sarah Palin more than survived the VP debate with Joe Biden.

Millionaire adventurer Steve Fossett did not survive his last flight a year ago. His wreaked plain and possible remains found in California.

I'm too tired to type more, so I'll watch the rest of Survivor Gabon. Kota's weak link, Paloma, voted off the continent. Sugar found the immunity idol.

I'm off to dreamland after barely surviving the day.

Senate Passes the Financial Crisis Bailout Package

...proving you can have your cake and eat it, too.

Around the cake (1962)

"Heroes are really important in our society," said Thiebaud, "but really the things that matter most are family and home, whether it's your daily cup of coffee or a warm bathrobe. ... The simple pleasures are really important in life. Wouldn't it be great to have a society where you didn't need heroes?"

Sarah Palin Interview with Hugh Hewitt

Gov. Sarah Palin was interviewed by Hugh Hewitt Tuesday afternoon. I hope she does many, many more of interviews like this.

Hewitt: Governor, you mentioned the people who are struggling right now. Have you and your husband, Todd, ever faced tough economic times where you had to sit around a kitchen table and make tough choices?

Palin: Oh my goodness, yes, Hugh. I know what Americans are going through. Todd and I—heck, we’re going through that right now even as we speak, which may put me again kind of on the outs of those Washington elite who don’t like the idea of just an everyday working class American running for such an office. But yes, there’s been a lot of times that Todd and I have had to figure out how we were going to pay for health insurance. We’ve gone through periods of our life here with paying out of pocket for health coverage until Todd and I both landed a couple of good union jobs.

Early on in our marriage, we didn’t have health insurance, and we had to either make the choice of paying out of pocket for catastrophic coverage or just crossing our fingers, hoping that nobody would get hurt, nobody would get sick. So I know what Americans are going through there. And you know, even today, Todd and I are looking at what’s going on in the stock market, the relatively low number of investments that we have, looking at the hit that we’re taking, probably $20,000 dollars last week in his 401(k) plan that was hit. I’m thinking, “Geez, the rest of America, they’re facing the exact same thing that we are.”

We understand what the problems are. It’s why I have all the faith in the world that John McCain is the right top of any ticket at this point to get us through these challenges. It’s a good balanced ticket where he’s got the experience, and he’s got the bipartisan approach that it’s going to take to get us through these challenges. And I have the acknowledgement and the experience of going through what America is going through.


Our stocks, you know, they took a hit yesterday. And then of course, just the same thing that other Americans are asking themselves today. We’ve got three teenagers. How are we going to pay for their college education? How are we going to make sure that we’re investing wisely today? We’re putting a lot of faith in other people who are using our money as investments. We have to count on the federal government to be overseeing these agencies and entities, making sure that we’re not going to get screwed on this deal, and that our savings are safe.

So there again, John McCain’s got some great ideas on granting authority, for instance, to the FDIC, making sure that our deposits are insured. He wants to increase that deposit insurance cap of all of our money, our savings, from $100,000 dollars up to $250,000 dollars, so that families like mine, so that we don’t have to worry about our money being safe or not under FDIC.


Hewitt: Last question, governor. Have you and Todd heard from your son? And how is it on your nerves having your son deployed?

Palin: That little stinker, I guess he’s called his girlfriend a couple of times, but can you believe he hasn’t called his momma yet? He’s over there. They were just leaving Kuwait heading into Iraq, and I am just so extremely proud of Track, my son, and all of the men and women, of course, serving in the military. I’m proud that my son made this independent and very wise decision as such a young man at 18, deciding—you know, he realized there’s something he can do to help, to contribute, to help protect our nation, and I couldn’t be more proud of him and all those who choose to serve in our military. They’re serving for the right reasons. God bless them, God love them.
The interview with Sarah Palin by Hugh Hewitt is only 10 minutes, but she said more in that short time than she was able to say with ABC's Charlie Gibson and CBS's Katie Couric combined. It's amazing what can be said when not being baited with gotcha questions.

Obama and the Children

Barack Obama and the little children are going to change the world.

Obama and the little children will change the world with a Civilian National Security Force just as strong and as well funded as the National Military Force. He wrote a book, The Audacity of Hope, telling how how hard his early life had been and how he will change the world. And he gave a speech in Berlin. Few are truly hearing the words.

Many years ago, another national leader had a similar idea for a National Socialist Peoples Youth Defense Force. That leader also wrote a book, My Struggle, telling how hard his early life had been and how he would change the world. He also gave many speeches in Berlin. Few are truly hearing the words.

The world paid a heavy price for that idea, and has yet to learn to read and listen.

Some people who have not learned from the past are condemned to repeat the past and are hellbent on dragging the rest of us along for our own good.

How high a price is the world willing to pay this time?

Obama's Character Judgement Sucks

John Hawkins at Right Wing News scored an interview with author David Freddoso. author of The Case Against Barack Obama.

J.H.: So, here is the question: how is it that Obama has ended up associated with so many shady characters? Typically politicians tend to stay away from people like that, don't they?

Freddoso: ...The most charitable interpretation of this situation is to say that Senator Obama's judgment is very bad. We criticize President Bush now, and rightly so, for saying he looked into Vladimir Putin's eyes and saw his soul, and saw a friend, when in fact, Putin wasn't the sort of man who could be trusted.

If you look at his political history, Barack Obama looks in every shady character's eyes and basically says,
"I can trust this guy or there's nothing wrong here." There's nothing wrong with attending a church for the better part of 20 years that subscribes to this garbage theology of James Cone with a pastor who's constantly throwing bombs. Don't tell me Barack Obama didn't know about Jeremiah Wright. The very first sermon he heard him give, Wright blamed white people for world starvation.

Obama Storm Troopers Threaten TV Stations Over Gun Ads

Senator Joe Biden, (remember him?) Vice-Presidential running mate to Barack Obama, recently told a southwestern Virginia United Mine Workers of America crowd and reported at the Huffington Post, liberal rag extraordinaire, that if Obama
"...tries to fool with my Beretta, he's got a problem... I guarantee you Barack Obama ain't taking my shotguns, so don't buy that malarkey... Don't buy that malarkey. They're going to start peddling that to you."
This may have happened too fast for Slow Joe. The Obama peeps are threatening TV and radio stations in Pennsylvania to prevent anti-Obama ads from airing, especially target ting NRA ads. Bob Bauer, no relation to Jack Bauer, Obama's campaign general council is seeking to censor the PA TV and radio station ads.

"Unlike federal candidates, independent political organizations do not have a 'right to command the use of broadcast facilities.' ...[Moreover, you have a duty] 'to protect the public from false, misleading or deceptive advertising.' ...This advertising is false, misleading, and deceptive... We request that you immediately cease airing this advertising."
The NRA claims Obama's goons are issuing the "intimidating cease and desist letters" to cable and broadcast television stations threatening to revoke the FCC licenses if the ads are run.

Further, the National Rifle Association charges Obama and the DNC with
"using strong-arm tactics reminiscent of Chicago machine politics to try and cover up the truth and silence NRA by forcing the stations to assist them in hiding Obama's radical anti-gun record."
"Strong-arm tactics" or Stormtrooper tactics. Before the Third Reich was established, gun rights were abolished. Before the Stalinist pogroms were carried out, gun rights were abolished. Saul Alinsky told radicals, "A guy has to be a political idiot to say all power comes out of the barrel of a gun when the other side has the guns."

Solution - disarm the other side. Joe, keep you Beretta handy and loaded, because Barry's coming for your guns.
