Posts from around the Blogroll
Here are a few posts from around the blogosphere that I found interesting:
Captains Quarters has a couple of posts that should both be must reads..
The First is Kerry’s Magic Veep: Remember the rumors and speculation in 2004 about John McCain becoming the running mate of John Kerry? Apparently Kerry said in an interview with Jonathan Singer that it was McCain who approached the Kerry campaign about the mythical John John ticket.
Captain Ed points that Kerry has a tendency to fabricate facts and spin reality to put himself in a more favorable light… remember his (Christmas in Cambodia) speech. Lets just say that the source of this claim is less than credible…
In another post The UN Hid North Korean Counterfeits, the Captain blogs about the NY Sun article about UN Officials aiding and abetting Kim Jong Il in the operation of a criminal enterprise…
The last Paragraph of Captain Ed’s post is an absolute gem: (emphasis is mine)
It would be an insult that we cannot afford to let pass. If the UN does not immediately fire everyone involved in this scandal and revoke their immunity, then we must cut off all funds for the UN and create a timetable for withdrawal from this thoroughly corrupt organization. We have no need of a debating society whose members transform refugee camps into seraglios, who stuff the pockets of dictators with money meant for those they oppress, and who actively assist other nations in undermining our currency. If the UN fails to cooperate, it’s time to push Turtle Bay into the water and bid adieu to the last of the Cold War anachronisms.
The UN building would make great condo’s too…
From my Blogging buddies at Hang Right Politics Kathy has this post discussing Chuck Schumer and the media circus surrounding the firing of some Federal Prosecutors. Kathy accurately and elloquintly points out that without the media driven bash Bush agenda Schumer would would not be holding hearings on the issue..
If there was no cooperation by the media, there would be no story. Even a preening Schumer can do the math. Clinton fired the same amount of prosecutors nine times over. There was no investigation then, and no call for one in the press. The Constitution is the ultimate victim here. Prosecutors serve at the pleasure of the President. Period.
Someone turn off the cameras, and watch, Schumer will just go home.
Read the whole post Democrats: The Conflict of Interest Party… on a bit of a side note… Wasn’t it Chuck Schumers aid who committed Identity Theft to aquire Michael Steele’s Credit Report in the 2006 campaign season? Somehow I don’t think Chuck will be demanding congressional investigations into that… But really What did Chuck Know and When did he know it?
And finally from my fellow Milblogger BlackFive, whose post about Ringside Harry Reid’s threat to cut off funding for troops in Iraq had me rolling on the floor laughing. Here are the last couple of Paragraphs:
I take heart from the fact that the left has so much juice with the Dems that they have started to believe they won a mandate for immediate withdrawal. They completely mistook America’s MTV length attention span and On Demand mentality for a defeatist, hate America mind set. This will offer a serious eye opener when Harry has to openly declare his party’s position that we have lost the war and must cede the battlefield and the victory to Al Qaeda.
Hey you could have Code Pink and Move ON hold a Defeat Parade to celebrate our loss and the subsequent inability to act as a deterrent to bad guys anywhere. YEA!!!!!!!!!
So do it Harry, C’mon don’t ‘ya feel lucky……punk!
