Ramsey Clark, one of the key leaders of A.N.S.W.E.R has gone to Baghdad to defend Saddam. Hate to say I told you so, but... Here is the story. This guy has a history of defending dictators. Anti-war activists should distance themselves from A.N.S.W.E.R after this. Here is more on Ramsey Clark.

Finally the GOP has made an ad that shows the statements the Dems have been making for years about the threat of a WMD-armed Saddam Hussein. My favorite is Pelosi, "There is no question Saddam has chemical weapons." www.GOP.com has the video. Click on "Play" and then "Democrats: Dishonest on Iraq."
I just found out I received an award last year from Free Republic. Thanks to those who decided to bestow this honor upon me. It means a lot coming from some of the most dedicated and hardcore conservatives in the country!! COLLEGIATE - The annual Free Republic Network "Collegiate" Eagle Award is given to a student who had completed his or her twelfth grade level of education prior to the awards year. During the awards year they will have been enrolled in and attended college, have shown that they possess good character and an understanding of conservative values, and have exhibited the leadership skills that would help spread those traits across their peer community. Bstein80, Brendan Steinhauser, is the author of an incredible book aimed at college students called “The Conservative Revolution - How to Win the Battle for College Campuses”. He is the former Executive Director of The Young Conservatives of Texas at UT-Austin. Brendan and his group received national media attention with their very successful Support the Troop rally(s). His book is filled with practical suggestions on how to further the conservative movement on campuses and is one I will be using on the campus of our local college as we set up a chapter of Students for Academic Freedom. He mentions the good work of FreeRepublic.com several times in his book.

WHY THIS WAR IS STILL WORTH THE FIGHT Marine Corporal Jeffrey B. Starr, 22, of Snohomish, Washington Died May 30, 2005 near Ar Ramadi, Iraq Below is an excerpt from a a letter he left behind to his girlfriend. "Obviously if you are reading this then I have died in Iraq. I kind of predicted this, that is why I'm writing this in November. A third time just seemed like I'm pushing my chances. I don't regret going, everybody dies but few get to do it for something as important as freedom. It may seem confusing why we are in Iraq, it's not to me. I'm here helping these people, so that they can live the way we live. Not have to worry about tyrants or vicious dictators. To do what they want with their lives. To me that is why I died. Others have died for my freedom, now this is my mark."

Congressman Hinojosa, I am writing to urge you to vote against setting an arbitrary deadline for troop withdrawals from Iraq. Now that we are there, we should leave the time and manner of withdrawal up to our General officers in the field. Please do not vote to support the proposal to set deadlines. This truly will embolden our enemies. Al Jazeera has a headline on its website that sends the Arab world the wrong message; a message of weakness. Please send a message of strength and resolve.

I received this email today from a soldier in Iraq who heard about our efforts here to counter-protest Leftists that despise the military... I'd love to go [to the protest] man, but im in Iraq right now. Yell at those hippies for me, and I hope everything goes well. Here is a little something you can tell them: My friend was in a city [not to be named, for security reasons] and a woman came up to him and asked if he could take her and her daughter home with him to America. He told her he wanted to but couldn't, and then she proceeded to take her daughter and force her into his arms and said at least take my daughter. Again he said he could not, and she understood, and thanked him profusley for being there and offered him dinner from her home. Tell those hippie Leftists that the reenlistment rate is through the roof over here...EVERYONE is reenlisting that has the opportunity, because we have the first-hand knowledge of what is REALLY going on, and it is not what CNN tells everyone. Now, I wanna thank you guys for doing what you are doing. It helps us realize there are people back home who are willing to stand up to what's wrong. They protest and the more they protest, the more they make the sacrifice my buddies and I have made in vain. It is just not right. So, do what you guys do best....Give'em hell boys. Ryne

Want to know why you should support the war for Iraqi Liberation? President Clinton knows why: http://tinyurl.com/mms3 There is no more clear example of this threat than Saddam Hussein's Iraq. His regime threatens the safety of his people, the stability of his region and the security of all the rest of us... In 1995, Hussein Kamal, Saddam's son-in-law, and the chief organizer of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program, defected to Jordan. He revealed that Iraq was continuing to conceal weapons and missiles and the capacity to build many more... If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program. We want to seriously reduce his capacity to threaten his neighbors. Clinton sounds like a neocon, eh?

The definitive piece on the case for the Iraq War by Norman Podhoretz in Commentary Magazine. I submit this to my anti-war friends so that they might repudiate the arguments Podhoretz makes. I have been making the same arguments for over two years now.

Texas is up 49-0 on Kansas in the second quarter. Vince has 4 touchdown passes today. There is no one more deserving of the Heisman trophy than Vince Young. Alabama got ROLLED by LSU. Guess that ends their already weak argument that they belong in Pasadena come January.

The Soldier It is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. It is the soldier, not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial. It is the soldier, who salutes the flag, who serves under the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag. By Charles M. Province ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I will be delivering copies of my anti-anti-war rally to soldiers tomorrow night.

I recently made some claims that many of the organizers of the anti-war rallies were really revolutionary communists and totalitarians. I was challenged by Christina to provide sources. I did so, but she was not satisfied. Well, here is a report from inside the most recent rally in San Francisco. If this doesn't prove my point to you lefties who are in denial about this, nothing will. Upon this report, I rest my case.
Recently, members of Congress began talking about a “windfall profits” tax on “Big Oil.” Due to pressure from consumers, these legislators are beginning to point the finger in the direction of oil companies, claiming that the companies are gouging consumers in the wake of the hurricanes. I cannot comment on the motivations of oil CEO’s, since I do not have access to their meetings. But I can comment on the idea that “excess” profits should be taxed and redistributed to consumers. This redistribution of wealth scheme is anti-free market, anti-growth and even anti-American. Profits are rewards for sound business judgement in the free market. Pursuing profit is what drives individuals and corporations to competition, innovation and lowering their prices. Installing burdensome taxes, regulations or price controls have the opposite effect. We should not be in the business of punishing success, by taxing profits. Rather, we should be lessening the regulations on both “Big Oil” and on small businesses who are competing to provide the best product at the lowest price. Ultimately it is the consumer who benefits the most.

I guess all those people who tried to say V-Tech was in the same league as USC and Texas were wrong after all. Hate to say "I told you so" but.. Marcus Vick is nowhere close to being on the same level as Vince Young or Reggie Bush.

Here is the story. Marauding youths torched nearly 900 vehicles, stoned paramedics and burned a nursery school in a ninth night of violence that spread from Paris suburbs to towns around France. Youths in the eastern Paris suburb of Meaux prevented paramedics from evacuating a sick person from a housing project, pelting rescuers with rocks and torching the awaiting ambulance. There is no excuse for these barbarous acts. Reminds me of the looting in New Orleans. The lefties are trying to blame unemployment and poverty, but I am starting to notice a propensity for violence in certain religions.
The story is here. An excerpt: Chavez was joined by Argentine soccer legend Diego Maradona, who carried the flag of communist Cuba and wore a T-shirt emblazoned with a picture of Bush under the words, "War Criminal." These South American communists are almost as violent and crazy as their North American brethren. As my video shows, the totalitarian left is anything but peaceful. Another excerpt: Many in the region feel Washington meddled too much in the past in economics and politics, then ignored the region to focus on the war on terrorism. Um, how about you left-wingers make up your mind!! Do you want us to meddle or not? Should we provide foreign aid to your coup-prone governments or allow you to stagnate in poverty and failed socialist policies?

Although the MSM won't report this, I'll say it anyway. Last Friday a couple of friends and I followed Cindy Sheehan into Walter Reed to see if we could get a picture with her. Admittedly, my friend's intention was to give her the finger as I snapped the photo, so we weren't entirely being upstanding citizens that night. But, our plans were thwarted, because Cindy didn't spend more than 5 minutes in the facility. We followed her down the elevator, and to the latrines. We watched her enter the ladies' room as her bodyguard/handler or whatever he was stayed outside and eyed everyone who walked by. Cindy came out of the bathroom, walked straight up the stairs and out the door. We were stunned. Not only had she not met with any soldiers, she didn't even seem to try to make it seem as though she did. AND she had her face covered by a scarf the whole time she was inside. What a phony! No one should believe any reports that say Cindy delivered cards and candies to the soldiers, because all she seemed to have time for was to... well, I won't even say it... If someone is going to pretend that they care about the soldiers and the other victims of war, then that person should at least take the time to talk with them, instead of using them as political pawns in their sick addiction to a self-absorbed 15 minutes of fame.
