US approves sale of F-35 Stealth fighter jets to Israel

The F-35 deal is valued at $15.2 billion and includes an option to buy 50 additional bombers in the coming years. Israel will be the first foreign sale of the advanced stealth fighter. Each plane is estimated to cost between $70 million and $80m and will be equipped with F-135 or F-136 engines by the IAF.

A Friend Walks 800 km Across Spain! El Camino de Santiago

A very close friend of mine whom I have known since the age of 10, just completed an 800 Kilometer walk through Spain in 32 straight days. We are very proud of his achievement! You can see the entire walk in an incredible series of 434 photos here. The trip started off badly as a commercial airliner crashed at the Madrid Airport while he was there to connect to a flight where his long march began in the South of France.
El Camino de Santiago is the 'Way of Saint James'. Although my friend is Jewish and a successful businessman, he wanted to take time off to experience this challenging pilgrimage, and can't say enough good things about the incredible scenery and warm people he met on this long journey.

Pelosi Kills Bailout Bill by Lying Through Her Teeth, and Failing to get over 90 Democrats on Board

Here is Nancy Pelosi blaming Republicans for the collapse of the Mortgage Market, claiming that they opposed regulations on the morgage markets which caused the collapse:

Here is the reality: Democrat after Democrat defending Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac against Republican efforts to clamp down and regulate against irresponsible lending:

It is just stunning that people of such low character sit in such high positions.

Hey Jennifer, Prosecute This You Witch


I hereby urge Missouri Prosecutor, the witch Jennifer Joyce to prosecute me for asserting the above loudly!

Prosecutor Jennifer Joyce, and other Missouri law enforcement personnel who have joined Obama's "truth squad" should themselves be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for voter intimidation, crude violations of the first amendment, and corrupt, abuse of their public office. This is a real jaw-dropper and a little jail time would send the right message to other public officials inclined to abuse their office in such a blatant manner.

These folks are clearly bucking for an Obama appointment should he win and have decided to abuse their public office to win favor with the presidential candidate. A blatant and unprecedented assault on the first amendment with police state-like tactics. They are clearly trying to intimidate voters and claim a monopoly on truth. That the Obama folks would ask them to do this is also beyond the pale and a real eye-opener as to what may be in store for free speech in this country should he be elected.

I certainly don't believe that being a member of the insane Reverend Wright's Church for 20 years qualifies anyone as a "Christian". A whitey-hating, Jew-hating bigot, maybe, but not a Christian. As for Taxes? Yes, Obama will raise your taxes if you earn under $250,000. Do you have a problem with me believing that and saying so loudly, Prosecutor? Bring it on witch.

PS: And yes, this is a public assault on your character because I believe that anyone who would use their public office to try to suppress free speech is a person of low character who shouldn't be anywhere near real power.

New York Times, September 30th, 1999:

Fannie Mae Eases Credit to Aid Mortgage Lending

Published: September 30, 1999

In a move that could help increase home ownership rates among minorities and low-income consumers, the Fannie Mae Corporation is easing the credit requirements on loans that it will purchase from banks and other lenders.

The action, which will begin as a pilot program involving 24 banks in 15 markets -- including the New York metropolitan region -- will encourage those banks to extend home mortgages to individuals whose credit is generally not good enough to qualify for conventional loans. Fannie Mae officials say they hope to make it a nationwide program by next spring.

Fannie Mae, the nation's biggest underwriter of home mortgages, has been under increasing pressure from the Clinton Administration to expand mortgage loans among low and moderate income people and felt pressure from stock holders to maintain its phenomenal growth in profits.

''Fannie Mae has expanded home ownership for millions of families in the 1990's by reducing down payment requirements,'' said Franklin D. Raines, Fannie Mae's chairman and chief executive officer (and current Obama advisor). ''Yet there remain too many borrowers whose credit is just a notch below what our underwriting has required who have been relegated to paying significantly higher mortgage rates in the so-called subprime market.''

Barney Frank's fingerprints are all over the financial fiasco

MSNBC is Married to Fannie Mae

PART OF THE PROBLEM: Yes, they don't just cover for each other, they actually sleep together: David Gregory and BETH WILKINSON. Wilkinson served as the bankrupt Fannie Mae's executive vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary from February 2006 until just a few days ago when things got too ugly. Beth Wilkinson and her lefty hubby, NBC's David Gregory. Yep, you can really tell they're looking out for you and all the little people. Don't they just look like they deserve to be bailed out by that tax paying pig farmer from Nebraska?

But don't worry, because David Gregory would never go on the air to report about this crisis without a disclaimer about his wife's role...oh wait....yes he would. and Oh yeah, financial records indicate that Beth Wilkinson has contributed $4,600 to Obama’s presidential campaign.

Is the McCain Campaign Hopless?

Where in the hell is the Reverend Wright? Obama called him his spiritual mentor, yet instead of the public understanding the 20 year marriage between Wright and Obama, all they are getting is the fantasy marriage between Bush and McCain. The McCain campaign are hopelessly weak. Treating this racist thug with kid gloves. Tony Rezko, William Ayres, Lewis Farrakhan... Hello? Anyone home at the McCain campaign?

Nazi-Like Law Enforcment "Truth Squads" for Obama

UPDATE: Missouri Governor Responds to Obama Nazi tactic:

JEFFERSON CITY - Gov. Matt Blunt today issued the following statement on news reports that have exposed plans by U.S. Senator Barack Obama to use Missouri law enforcement to threaten and intimidate his critics.

“St. Louis County Circuit Attorney Bob McCulloch, St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce, Jefferson County Sheriff Glenn Boyer, and Obama and the leader of his Missouri campaign Senator Claire McCaskill have attached the stench of police state tactics to the Obama-Biden campaign.

“What Senator Obama and his helpers are doing is scandalous beyond words, the party that claims to be the party of Thomas Jefferson is abusing the justice system and offices of public trust to silence political criticism with threats of prosecution and criminal punishment.
Law enforcement officials have been asked by the Obama campaign to prosecute anyone "not telling the truth" about Obama. A group of Public Prosecutors and Sheriffs who support Obama have announced that they will "go after" anyone calming that Obama is not a Christian and wants to raise your taxes if you earn less than $250,000. Claiming a monopoly on "truth" they intend to use the full wait of officialdom to "go after" those who dispute their "truth". There are simply no words. These folks themselves should be prosecuted for voter intimidation and misuse of their official positions.

'US delivers advanced high- powered radar system to Israel'

The U.S. Army's European Command deployed an early-warning radar system in Israel last week along with a 120-member support team, the weekly Defense News reported.

The move marks the first permanent presence in Israel of American military personnel. The high-powered radar system is meant to augment Israel's defenses against Iranian ground-to-ground missiles.

Dem Bailout Proposal Slips in Billions to Democrat Slush Fund ACORN

Noooo, the Democrats aren't playing politics with this massive bailout. They're just funneling billions in to their own slush funds hoping it will go unnoticed during this hour of desperation for the American people. Good lord! As reported today in the Wall Street Journal:

What we have here essentially are a pair of government slush funds created in July as part of the Economic Recovery Act that pump tax dollars into the coffers of low-income housing advocacy groups, such as Acorn.

Acorn, one of America's most militant left-wing "community activist groups," is spending $16 million this year to register Democrats to vote in November. In the past several years, Acorn's voter registration programs have come under investigation in Ohio, Colorado, Michigan, Missouri and Washington, while several of their employees have been convicted of voter fraud.

Along with other potential recipients of these funds, including the National Council of La Raza and the Urban League, Acorn has promoted laws like the Community Reinvestment Act, which laid the foundation for the house of cards built out of subprime loans. Thus, we'd be funneling more cash to the groups that helped create the lending mess in the first place.

Democrats Fight Demands for Regulations on Their Cash Cow Fannie and Freddie, Clinton Admits to Mistake

Notice at the end of the video how Bill Clinton acknowledges his mistake, and takes personal responsibility for failing to tighten up on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac when he was warned to do so by Republicans. He has just earned more credibility with me. People make mistakes, few people admit it. Watch as Democrats shamelessly oppose any restraints on their cash cow Fannie and Freddie:

First Impression: Slight Advantage to McCain. McCain Wins on Substance, Obama Wins on Style

Unfortunately, vast numbers of the American electorate vote on style. Here is McCain and Obama's exchange on Iran:

One thing that did bother me was when Obama described the current President of the United States as "Your President". I was hoping that McCain would have made an issue about that by asking obama "Don't you mean OUR PRESIDENT Senator Obama? You may disagree with our President on Policy but he is still OUR PRESIDENT, Show a little respect for the Office Senator." That would have been the stand out line of the night, the YouTube moment. Unfortunately, McCain let that slide.

Mystery surrounds hijacked Iranian ship, MV Iran Deyanat, Taken to Somalia

Long War Journal reports on an abducted Iranian ship off of the coast of Somalia, whose cargo apparently is causing sickness and death among the pirates who took control of the ship. Hmmmm.

An official Somali delegation secured contact with the captain and the engineer by cell phone and demanded to know the nature of the cargo, however, "they were saying different things to different people." Initially they said that the cargo contained "crude oil" but then claimed it contained "minerals."

In a strange twist, the Iranian press claims that the U.S. has offered to pay a $7 million bribe to the pirates to "receive entry permission and search the vessel." Officials in the Pentagon and the Department of State approached for this story refused to comment on the situation. Somali officials would also not comment on any direct U.S. involvement but one high-level official in the Puntland government told The Long War Journal "I can say the ship is of interest to a lot of people.

Palin to Peres: I'm a longtime friend of Israel

Israeli President Shimon Peres met Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin Thursday and the two exchanged some warm words. Peres was on hand to deliver a speech at an international conference organized by former United States President Bill Clinton.

Upon meeting the Israeli president Palin told him she has wanted to meet him and get to know him for years. She added that the only flag in her office, aside from the American flag, is the Israeli flag, stressing that she wants Israelis to know that she's been a longtime friend of the Jewish state, and will remain such.

In Honor of Sir Paul McCartney

Who defied direct threats to his life this week from Islamic extremists, and performed a smashing outdoor concert in Tel Aviv today in front of 50,000 screaming fans with a message of peace, love and tolerance.

It is rare that a performer shows no fear. The unpretentious McCartney mingled freely with fans, signing autographs and generously taking photos with regular people in the streets.

The "Jewish" Barbara Streisand canceled a show in Israel once because somebody threatened to fart.

Dems Responsible for Collapse of the Mortgage Market...Period.

IBD: Here's the lead of a New York Times story on Sept. 11, 2003: "The Bush administration today recommended the most significant regulatory overhaul in the housing finance industry since the savings and loan crisis a decade ago."

Bush tried to act. Who stopped him? Congress, especially Democrats with their deep financial and patronage ties to the two government-sponsored enterprises, Fannie and Freddie.

"These two entities — Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac — are not facing any kind of financial crisis," said Rep. Barney Frank, then ranking Democrat on the Financial Services Committee. "The more people exaggerate these problems, the more pressure there is on these companies, the less we will see in terms of affordable housing."

It's pretty clear who was on the right side of that debate.

As for presidential contender John McCain, just two years after Bush's plan, McCain also called for badly needed reforms to prevent a crisis like the one we're now in.

"If Congress does not act," McCain said in 2005, "American taxpayers will continue to be exposed to the enormous risk that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac pose to the housing market, the overall financial system and the economy as a whole."

Sounds like McCain was spot on.

Rep. Hastings (D-FL): “Anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks."

Ha, ha, very funny
A deeply sick and pathetic man who needs psychological help. A race hustler of the worst sort. Any Jew (or black) who falls for this type of sickness is a hopeless creature beyond persuasion. It is telling that Democrats in the room burst out laughing when he said it.

Gaff Machine Biden: When the Stock Market Crashed, Roosevelt went on TV to reassure people

Every single day brings multiple Biden gaffs. Imagine Palin or McCain goofing up every day like this. We would never hear the end of it. "When the stock market crashed, Roosevelt went on TV", good lord! Roosevelt was not President in 1929 when the stock market crashed, and of course, there was no such thing as TV. The man is a walking, talking train-wreck. And they have the nerve to talk about Palin's "readiness" or McCain's "age".

The gift that keeps on giving; Joe Biden contradicts his own running mates policy favoring clean coal power plants:

Dangerously Unprepared!
Holy smokes! Joe Biden is the Rambo of the US Senate!
"If you want to know where Al Qaeda lives, you want to know where Bin Laden is, come back to Afghanistan with me. Come back to the area where my helicopter was forced down....10,500 feet in the middle of those mountains. I can tell you where they are."

WOW!!! When I think of Biden, I'm thinking an inside the beltway, dapper slickster lawyer with fake hair who never served a day in his life. But now I'm going to have to rethink this... ah not really, the details are a little less spectacular. This is almost as heroic as Hillary dodging those bullets in Bosnia.

How Regular Folks View the Media

Dinesh D'Souza Moves Forward with George Obama Compassion Fund

I can proudly say with confidence that the Neocon Express was the first to introduce the idea of a fund to assist Barack Obama's brother, George Obama, who lives in abject poverty in Kenya. Obama has not lifted a finger to help his brother out of this horrible situation but purports to be ready to lift us all out of our financial crisis here in America. Meanwhile, Dinesh D'Souza has moved forward with the "George Obama Compassion Fund". I congratulate him for that:

So isn't it interesting that we keep hearing about Sarah Palin's peccadilloes while the major media continues to ignore the George Obama scandal? Here is a guy living in Third World poverty and his half-brother is the leading candidate to become the next president of the United States. Are the networks and major newspapers so exhilarated at the prospect of an African American president that they have become cheerleaders for the Obama campaign? Fortunately the McCain campaign is making the media an issue, and I hope the American people are smart enough to see through the news charade.

Here are the facts about George Obama. He’s in his twenties. He lives in a slum in a hut. He wants to become a mechanic but doesn’t have the money. He reports that he gets by on a dollar a month. He met George Obama in 2006 for a few minutes and said it was like talking to a “total stranger.” He said when people notice he has the same name as Barack Obama, he denies they are related because he is “ashamed.” The Democratic presidential candidate, who made $4 million last year, hasn’t lifted a finger to help his half-brother.

McCain Campaign: New York Times is an advocacy organization for Obama

This web site openly supports John McCain for President and anyone coming to this site should and will know that very quickly. I do this openly and loudly as a citizen exercising freedom of speech, and in that way I am no different from the New York Times. The only difference being that the New York Times advocates for Obama without admitting it. In other words they are deceptive and dishonest to the core:

Media: If you don't vote for Obama... There's a good chance You're a racist.

There they go again:
They just can't help themselves. Why are Obama supporters playing the race card at every turn? Has anyone heard the Republicans bring up race in this campaign even once? Once again, Media types are desperately trying to guilt regular folks like you into voting for the extreme left-winger, by calling you ugly names if you don't.

Of course, it was not you who went to a race-centric church for twenty years where hate-America, hate-whitey, anti-Semitic rantings were delivered on a weekly basis. It was barack Obama himself who did that. Non-the-less, the media ignores Obama's associations over a period of decades with some of this country's vilest haters, and put the race thing on you instead. How convenient.

Governor Sarah Palin's Speech that was denied by the Conference of Major Jewish Organizations: Ahmadinejad Must Be Stopped!

By Governor Sarah Palin:

I am honored to be with you and with leaders from across this great country — leaders from different faiths and political parties united in a single voice of outrage.

Tomorrow, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will come to New York — to the heart of what he calls the Great Satan — and speak freely in this, a country whose demise he has called for.

Ahmadinejad may choose his words carefully, but underneath all of the rhetoric is an agenda that threatens all who seek a safer and freer world. We gather here today to highlight the Iranian dictator's intentions and to call for action to thwart him.

He must be stopped.

The world must awake to the threat this man poses to all of us. Ahmadinejad denies that the Holocaust ever took place. He dreams of being an agent in a "Final Solution" — the elimination of the Jewish people. He has called Israel a "stinking corpse" that is "on its way to annihilation." Such talk cannot be dismissed as the ravings of a madman — not when Iran just this summer tested long-range Shahab-3 missiles capable of striking Tel Aviv, not when the Iranian nuclear program is nearing completion, and not when Iran sponsors terrorists that threaten and kill innocent people around the world.

The Iranian government wants nuclear weapons. The International Atomic Energy Agency reports that Iran is running at least 3,800 centrifuges and that its uranium enrichment capacity is rapidly improving. According to news reports, U.S. intelligence agencies believe the Iranians may have enough nuclear material to produce a bomb within a year.

The world has condemned these activities. The United Nations Security Council has demanded that Iran suspend its illegal nuclear enrichment activities. It has levied three rounds of sanctions. How has Ahmadinejad responded? With the declaration that the "Iranian nation would not retreat one iota" from its nuclear program.

So, what should we do about this growing threat? First, we must succeed in Iraq. If we fail there, it will jeopardize the democracy the Iraqis have worked so hard to build, and empower the extremists in neighboring Iran. Iran has armed and trained terrorists who have killed our soldiers in Iraq, and it is Iran that would benefit from an American defeat in Iraq.

If we retreat without leaving a stable Iraq, Iran's nuclear ambitions will be bolstered. If Iran acquires nuclear weapons — they could share them tomorrow with the terrorists they finance, arm, and train today. Iranian nuclear weapons would set off a dangerous regional nuclear arms race that would make all of us less safe.

But Iran is not only a regional threat; it threatens the entire world. It is the no. 1 state sponsor of terrorism. It sponsors the world's most vicious terrorist groups, Hamas and Hezbollah. Together, Iran and its terrorists are responsible for the deaths of Americans in Lebanon in the 1980s, in Saudi Arabia in the 1990s, and in Iraq today. They have murdered Iraqis, Lebanese, Palestinians, and other Muslims who have resisted Iran's desire to dominate the region. They have persecuted countless people simply because they are Jewish.

Iran is responsible for attacks not only on Israelis, but on Jews living as far away as Argentina. Anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial are part of Iran's official ideology and murder is part of its official policy. Not even Iranian citizens are safe from their government's threat to those who want to live, work, and worship in peace. Politically-motivated abductions, torture, death by stoning, flogging, and amputations are just some of its state-sanctioned punishments.

It is said that the measure of a country is the treatment of its most vulnerable citizens. By that standard, the Iranian government is both oppressive and barbaric. Under Ahmadinejad's rule, Iranian women are some of the most vulnerable citizens.

If an Iranian woman shows too much hair in public, she risks being beaten or killed.

If she walks down a public street in clothing that violates the state dress code, she could be arrested.

But in the face of this harsh regime, the Iranian women have shown courage. Despite threats to their lives and their families, Iranian women have sought better treatment through the "One Million Signatures Campaign Demanding Changes to Discriminatory Laws." The authorities have reacted with predictable barbarism. Last year, women's rights activist Delaram Ali was sentenced to 20 lashes and 10 months in prison for committing the crime of "propaganda against the system." After international protests, the judiciary reduced her sentence to "only" 10 lashes and 36 months in prison and then temporarily suspended her sentence. She still faces the threat of imprisonment.

Earlier this year, Senator Clinton said that "Iran is seeking nuclear weapons, and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps is in the forefront of that" effort. Senator Clinton argued that part of our response must include stronger sanctions, including the designation of the IRGC as a terrorist organization. John McCain and I could not agree more.

Senator Clinton understands the nature of this threat and what we must do to confront it. This is an issue that should unite all Americans. Iran should not be allowed to acquire nuclear weapons. Period. And in a single voice, we must be loud enough for the whole world to hear: Stop Iran!

Only by working together, across national, religious, and political differences, can we alter this regime's dangerous behavior. Iran has many vulnerabilities, including a regime weakened by sanctions and a population eager to embrace opportunities with the West. We must increase economic pressure to change Iran's behavior.

Tomorrow, Ahmadinejad will come to New York. On our soil, he will exercise the right of freedom of speech — a right he denies his own people. He will share his hateful agenda with the world. Our task is to focus the world on what can be done to stop him.

We must rally the world to press for truly tough sanctions at the U.N. or with our allies if Iran's allies continue to block action in the U.N. We must start with restrictions on Iran's refined petroleum imports.

We must reduce our dependency on foreign oil to weaken Iran's economic influence.

We must target the regime's assets abroad; bank accounts, investments, and trading partners.

President Ahmadinejad should be held accountable for inciting genocide, a crime under international law.

We must sanction Iran's Central Bank and the Revolutionary Guard Corps — which no one should doubt is a terrorist organization.

Together, we can stop Iran's nuclear program.

Senator McCain has made a solemn commitment that I strongly endorse: Never again will we risk another Holocaust. And this is not a wish, a request, or a plea to Israel's enemies. This is a promise that the United States and Israel will honor, against any enemy who cares to test us. It is John McCain's promise and it is my promise.

Thank you.

Thug for President: "Get in Their Faces!"

Obama bragged about being a product of "Chicago Politics" as evidence of his toughness. He then went further: "I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face."
When someone "gets in your face", that usually means he has no argument, Senator. McCain highlights Obama's thug problem:

Of course, McCain hasn't even mentioned the worst of Obama's associations...yet.

Democrats threaten to Kneecap Jewish Nonprofits

A Liberal's Worst Nightmere: "Dead Center"

Give yourself an hour to learn everything you really need to know about the current financial meltdown: Mark Levin breaks it down with mathematical precision.

His bottom line point is this: More than any other party, it is the US government that is primarily responsible for the financial breakdown. It was the US government through acts of Congress, that imposed through coercion, policies upon our private sector financial institutions to lend out large sums of government guaranteed money to those who were completely ill equipped to repay the loans. No money down loans with no verifiable collateral or source of income. Home ownership for minorities and other sectors rose substantially and politicians pointed to the new "ownership society" and celebrated. But there was a dark side to this good news that no politician was willing to point to. The dark side? Many if not most of these new homeowners were simply not in a position to repay their loans, they were over their heads from day one. Speculators also took advantage of the easy credit and purchased multiple homes on the religious belief that home values will rise forever. When their new assets were suddenly worth less than what they owed, they simply walked away leaving the banks holding the bag. The banks suddenly own a lot less cash and a lot more illiquid assets in the form of real estate that is now worth less than was lent out originally on the property. So banks are now desperately short on cash; are not in a position to lend out money, and many are on the verge of collapse. Even a tiny "run" on the bank at this stage will spell disaster for the entire US economic system and could trigger a global recession... or worse.

Since it was Government's political policy to ease credit standards to the point of disaster, it is only fitting, natural and correct that Government step in and bail out the system before it collapses completely. But people need to understand that the Government is us. Our elected officials (primarily Democrats) pursued these policies of low credit standards in order to benefit what they believed was their constituencies, and of course to benefit their cronies at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac who contributed millions to these same politicians and walked away with tens of millions each from those institutions. Some of these politicians should go to jail, but will instead certainly retire with comfortable taxpayer pensions.

Maybe it's Just Me?

"He was such a good kisser that I had to purchase a book which taught me how to kiss to keep up with him. Of course we had sex...he was not only good at kissing but good at everything."

Hell, he even balanced her budget.


"I met and began a romance with a Brazilian fashion model, and gloried in the envy of my friends," wrote McCain. "We danced on the terrace overlooking the bay until one o'clock in the morning, when I felt her cheek was moist."

"'What's the matter?' I asked.

"'I'll never see you again,' she replied.

"I told her that we would remain in town for eight more days, and that I would gladly spend as much time in her company as she would grant me. But she rebutted my every assurance with 'No, I can never see you again.'

"'Are you engaged?'


"'Look, I'm going to be down at the gate of the shipyard at one o'clock tomorrow afternoon. I'll be there, and I want you to be there, too.'

"She said nothing in reply, and an hour later she left the party with her aunt, who served as her constant companion and chaperone.

"The next afternoon, I left the ship at about twelve-thirty and waited for her at the place I had designated. An hour passed, and she had not arrived. Another hour and she still had not appeared. An hour after that, I forlornly prepared to abandon all hope. Just as I was preparing to return to the ship in a state of deep despondency, she pulled up in a Mercedes with gull-wing doors. She honked the horn, and I jumped in, ecstatic.

"I spent every free moment with her for the rest of my stay in Rio. She was very beautiful, stylish, and gracious -- common attributes in her wealthy and socially prominent family. She took me to dinners and receptions where I toasted my extraordinary good fortune in the company of cabinet members, generals and admirals, wealthy aristocrats, and, on one occasion, the president of Brazil.

"We spent my last evening on liberty together. She drove me to my ship the next morning. I emerged from under the open gull-wing door and kissed her to a chorus of rowdy cheers from my shipmates. I accepted their approval with an affected sheepish humility.

"When we returned to Annapolis, I had a few weeks' leave, which I used to fly right back to Rio to continue my storybook romance. By the following Christmas, the distance between us, and our youthful impatience and short attention spans, brought an end to our affair. But it resides in my memory, embellished with age, of course, among the happier experiences of my life."

McCain Offers New Choice: ‘Country First or Obama First’

I agree with this entirely. Obama is all about Obama. Moneybag-Obama has never served this country, not even for a moment. Other than his own campaigns to further his own career, he has run nothing in his life, not even a lemonade stand. An opportunistic politician of the worst sort.

Obama the Gaff Machine

Admittedly, this is a kind of snotty video; but imagine if McCain or Palin came even remotely close to these types of gaffs; And these aren't just little slips. They go to basic knowledge, like when Hugo Chavez came to power, when the march on Selma occurred, who liberated Auschwitz, or even how many States there are in the Union. Some of these occurred even with a teleprompter:

What I most appreciate about Obama, is even when he commits the most incredible gaff, he says it with such smoothness and confidence that if just goes right over the heads of the listeners.

ARLINGTON, VA -- Today, U.S. Senator John McCain issued the following statement on the "Stop Iran" rally:

"Throughout my political career, I have sought to rise above partisanship on critical national issues. Nowhere is this more true than on important matters of national security. Earlier this year, Senator Clinton, Senator Obama and I issued a joint statement on the genocide in Darfur and pledged to support efforts to bring it to an end. Earlier this month, Senator Obama and I put the campaign aside to commemorate the seventh anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on our country and talk about the importance of national service.

"Next Monday, the day before Iranian President Ahmadinejad is to speak before the United Nations General Assembly, several organizations will sponsor an event to draw attention to the importance of halting Iran's efforts to acquire nuclear weapons. Governor Palin and I share a strong belief that a nuclear armed Iran poses a grave threat to the security of Americans and to our allies. Iran is the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism. The risk that Iran would provide terrorists with a nuclear weapon is too great for the world to ignore. Iranian President Ahmadinejad has denied the Holocaust occurred and called Israel a 'stinking corpse.' A nuclear-armed Iran would destabilize the entire region. Preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons should be a shared goal of every American, not another occasion for partisan posturing.

"Governor Palin was pleased to accept an invitation to address this rally and show her resolve on this grave national security issue, regrettably that invitation has since been withdrawn under pressure from Democratic partisans. We stand shoulder to shoulder with Republicans, Democrats and independents alike to oppose Ahmadinejad's goal of a nuclear armed Iran. Senator Obama's campaign had the opportunity to join us. Senator Obama chose politics rather than the national interest."

Palin Disinvited From Anti-Ahmadinejad Rally By Jewish Group

The organizers of an anti-Iran rally Monday rescinded their invitation to Alaska Governor Sarah Palin after Democrats protested that her presence would turn the event into a political rally, McCain campaign and Jewish community sources said.

The Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations created a political tempest by inviting Palin to speak without clearing her invitation with the head of their other religion, Senator Hillary Clinton.
This is why the "organized" Jewish community is generally an embarrassment to itself. These are the same types of folks and organizations that stood silent during the Holocaust because it would have been politically incorrect and inconvenient to the Roosevelt administration. They should be ashamed of themselves. As a Jew, I would look to the likes of Palin to defend the Jewish people well before I would depend on wimpy American Jewish organizations.

Report: David Kernell Identified as the Scumball Hacker into Palin E-mail

DEMOCRAT VALUES: 20 year old Son of Tennessee Democrat State Representative Mike Kernell, David Kernell, has been fingered as the hacker who broke in to Sarah palin's private e-mail account and help splash it all over the Internet.
To quote Janeane Garofalo: "Democrats are fundamentally more decent people".

Fannie and Freddie: Obama is like Family

Keep in mind that moneybags-Obama received more money from these two failed institutions that control over half of all US mortgages, than any other Congressman other than Chris Dodd:

Oh yeah! Obama's really going to shake up Washington. In bed with credit lobbyists, never confronted a single Democrat on anything, the product of corrupt Chicago machine politics. Real "change" we can believe in.

Michelle Obama asked voters Thursday to make their choice on the issues, not because, "I like that guy" or, "she's cute."

Tony Blair's Whako Sister-in-Law: This Place is like Darfur or a Concentration Camp

the loony left-wing sister-in-law of former British PM Tony Blair, Lauren Booth, is stuck in Gaza. She arrived there illegally by boat and now can't secure entry into Israel or Egypt. So she has taken to talking to the media by phone, giving hysterical reports about how Gaza is like Darfur where people are starving to death in the streets and being chased down by imaginary evil Jews who don't even live there. She then described Gaza as similar to a German concentration camp. All of this rhetoric was given just after a visit to her local Gaza corner store....which also looks just like any corner store in Darfur or Auschwitz.

Biden: paying higher taxes is "patriotic"

Gaff-machine Biden calls on Americans to be more "patriotic" and pay higher taxes. Of course, the original patriots who founded this country rebelled precisely because of higher taxes. Biden did not mention if he considers military service a patriotic act... only taxes. Does this mean that Biden is challenging the patriotism of those who oppose higher taxes?

Democratic Leadership: "No One Knows What to do"

The Democratic-controlled Congress, acknowledging that it isn't equipped to lead the way to a solution for the financial crisis and can't agree on a path to follow, is likely to just get out of the way.

Lawmakers say they are unlikely to take action before, or to delay, their planned adjournments -- Sept. 26 for the House of Representatives, a week later for the Senate. While they haven't ruled out returning after the Nov. 4 elections, they would rather wait until next year unless Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke, who are leading efforts to contain the crisis, call for help.

One reason, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said yesterday, is that ``no one knows what to do'' at the moment.

Hillary Backer Donald Trump endorses McCain

Al Franken Steals From Children:

Like the Messiah, he too "cares" about the little guy.

Gateway Pundit has the scoop on Obama supporters hacking into Sarah Palin's private e-mail account and splashing her private communications all over the Internet,including private family photo's, private phone numbers, private e-mail address's. The deranged left: Keep'en it classy.

CAT FIGHT! Hillary Bolts From Large NY Anti-Ahmadinejad Rally Because of Palin

Hillary decided to bolt from a large rally being organized against the UN appearance of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in New York. Hillary was originally scheduled as one of the main speakers, but when she heard that Sarah Palin will also be speaking, queen Hillary bolted! God forbid that Hillary be upstaged by that ....little person from Alaska. At least now we know how committed and sincere she is to that cause. She is more concerned about an appearance with Palin than she is about the insane, nuke-seeking Ahmadinejad.

Biden: Many Americans are Just too Stupid and intimidated to Appreciate the deep Intelligence of Barack Obama

He stands by smiling as he is introduced by someone who calls his opponent Palin "a bucket of fluff". Keep it up guys. The voters will decide on election day who is unintelligent and a bucket of fluff.

Here is Biden justifying the war to topple Sadam Hussein:

Who Can Better Relate to the Average American?

From the folks that like to criticize Palin as "out of touch" and question how many houses McCain's wife owns:

Barack Obama's Multi-million dollar mansion in Chicago:
Joe Biden's Multi-million dollar mansion on the water in Delaware:
Al Gore's Multi-million dollar mansion in Tennessee:
Sarah Palin's first and only House, built by her Husband Todd:

I'm really struggling to get a feel for who's more in touch with the real America.

Moneybags-Obama Goes to Hollywood for a $28,000 per plate Fundraiser...And to complain About the Economy

Limosine-Liberals in Hollywood are so "concerned" about the little guy that they are fighting to secure a seat for themselves at a $28,000 per plate fundraiser for Moneybags-Obama... and to hear from him about how bad our economy is and how much he really really cares for the little guy.

BaBa has no time for Hurricane relief, but plenty of time for moneybags-Obama's fundraiser:

McCartney Ignores Death Threats, Will Perform in Israel

Debbie Schlussel has the story down cold, but generally speaking, McCartney is showing uncommon resolve in the face of public death threats:

"I was approached by different groups and political bodies who asked me not to come here. I refused. I do what I think, and I have many friends who support Israel."
Omar Bakri, an Islamic preacher expelled from Britain and now living in Lebanon, said McCartney's decision to perform as part of Israel's 60th anniversary celebrations has turned him into the enemy of Muslims worldwide.

"If he values his life, Mr. McCartney must not come to Israel," Bakri was quoted as saying. "He will not be safe there. The sacrifice operatives will be waiting for him." . . .

McCartney has also been pressured by pro-Palestinian groups to cancel the show, but has resisted.

Barack Obama is Talking Down the US Economy, Hoping for a Run on the Banks

As a matter of leadership and responsibility, McCain continues to express confidence in the fundamentals of the US economy; The Obama campaign on the other hand senses political advantage in trashing and talking down the economy to the maximum extent possible, and is ridiculing responsible discussion. Apparently obama sees political hay in spreading panic and causing a run on the bank.

RCP: Electoral Map Currently Shows Likely McCain Victory

Another Neocon Victory shaping up well. And when we say "Neocon" we mean it in a good way.

Assuming that McCain can hold the bulk of the 2004 toss-up states like Ohio, Nevada, Virginia, Colorado, Obama is toast.
