Is this a Presidential Picture?

I shudder when I think that this picture could be hanging in all government buildings, all Federal courthouses, etc.

Just -- YUCK.

McCain Loses Presidency

As if he ever had a chance, this dope lost it when he voted "aye" for cloture on the Amnesty Bill today.

I hope he wrangled an invitation to Hyannis, because he won't be sleeping in the White House. Note to John: Don't drive with Teddy.

The Immigration Bill in PLAIN ENGLISH

If you are not afraid, VERY AFRAID, of what can happen if this terrible bill passes, please read this great article by John Shadegg, Congressman from Arizona. Shadegg has obviously READ the bill (can Voinovich say that?) and clearly states the consequences if it passes.

Can you say "dirty bomb"?

Build The Fence, Deport Illegals who are Arrested, and Fine Employers who Hire Illegals. It really is that simple.

BTF DIA FEHI Good bumper sticker material.

I Fear that It Is So

Re: Re: Lugar [Andy McCarthy]

I don't mean to be harsh regarding Senator Lugar. He is hardly a singular voice here. Unlike the foreign policy establishment, however, I have spent many years dealing with real live jihadists. Fact: They really do think they can and will win. They don't need a lot of hope to carry on — people willing to kill themselves in order to kill you are already pretty motivated. But they derive great hope from what they (rightly) see as our surrenders and our ambivalence — compared to their own great certainty and confidence.

I am not a fan of how the war has been directed, and I believe expending our time and effort on the democracy project rather than on defeating our enemies in Iraq and elsewhere will go down as one of history's great blunders. But with all that said, I note with the heartache of one who has seen it all too many times before: We will rue the day we leave Iraq without routing radical Islam. What we have not killed, we have made stronger.

This day in History -- 20 years ago today

"Mr. Gorbachev, TEAR DOWN THIS WALL".

One of the all-time greatest speeches, June 12, 1987. Watch and listen here.

I was in Berlin in the spring of 1990, just after the wall came down. The Berliners were all grateful to Reagan for leading the way.
