New Democratic Tape Warns Of Attacks 'Worse Than 9/11'...Oops...I Meant Hollywood Liberals...Damn it...I Mean Al Qaeda

The lines are getting blurry and rhetoric even more incoherent. Lately I have been having a hard time deciphering between Democratic campaign speeches, celebrity sound bites and new taped threats from Al Qaeda:

  • This is not a call for negotiations.
  • This war is lost and the surge is not accomplishing anything as indicated by the extreme violence in Iraq yesterday
  • You may or may not be aware of it but today, nearly four years after you hastily declared victory in Iraq, and more than five and a half years after you fell into the Afghanistan trap, things aren’t going too fact, things are going really bad.
  • In other words, you’re losing on all fronts and losing big time.
  • So stop wasting your time, and trying to save face with these futile maneuvers on Capitol Hill and start making some serious moves.
  • I not only think that they (U.S. leaders) are misguided, but I think they know exactly what they are doing and I think that they are men who are possessed of evil.
  • When I see an American flag flying, it's a joke.
  • You can't beat your enemy anymore through wars; instead you create an entire generation of people revenge-seeking. These days it only matters who's in charge. Right now that's us -- for a while at least. Our opponents are going to resort to car bombs and suicide attacks because they have no other way to win. ...I believe he thinks this is a war that can be won, but there is no such thing anymore. We can't beat anyone anymore.
The game for you is too figure out who's the enemy and who's supposedly our fellow patriots. Good luck and no Googling.

Funny, Because It's True

Just another reason why the Onion is America's most trusted news source:

Al Qaeda Also Fed Up With Ground Zero Construction Delays

What If The NY Times Covered The American Revolution...

I blatantly stole this picture from Doug Powers, because it beautifully conveys my feelings towards the press.

I Believe Hillary

Yesterday an internal Hillary Clinton memo was leaked to the press suggesting that she skip the Iowa caucuses to focus on other primaries. Shortly after that revelation, the Clinton campaign strongly refuted the memo and said they were committed to winning Iowa.
“It’s not the opinion of the campaign,” Mrs. Clinton told Radio Iowa on
Wednesday, referring to the memorandum. “It’s not my opinion.”

That's not political, face saving spin...that's the truth. When a Clinton says something, you can bank on it. Honest and intergrity are the back bone of a Clinton. It's about trust people. Clinton's aren't the type to simply tell people what they want to hear. They don't read opinion polls and change their beliefs just to pander to some hick voters. Hell no.

When Hillary says she's committed to winning Iowa that's enough for me. Nothing in her past or even her husband's past would make me question her honesty.

Quoted For Truth...

Des Moines Register columnist [probably about to be "former" Des Moines Register columnist] John Carlson has another one of those great letters from a soldier ripping the news coverage of the war.

***A word to our regular liberal readers [yes, I know you're there], you may want to stop reading now. The article doesn't have the usual liberal media spin, but instead has stuff like truth and honesty. I am afraid reading yet another US soldier telling you that all the negative war coverage is destroying morale and ading the enemy will fuck with your mypoic little world. I know how much you believe ignorance is bliss, so just stop reading now and pretend like this article doesn't even exist. Trust me, it will make it so you're still able to swallow your own bullshit.***

Carlson: Shift news to successes in Iraq, soldier urges

A tired and disgusted Iowa soldier fired off an e-mail a few days ago, telling
family and friends how things are going in Iraq.

A Blackhawk helicopter pilot, Chief Warrant Officer Jim Funk has flown more than 80 combat missions since he arrived there in October.

He described his Boone-based unit's successes after 5,000 hours of flying out of LSA Anaconda, a huge American base north of Baghdad. He talked about the tragedies he and his fellow Iowans have witnessed and his worries of becoming complacent as he goes on mission after mission.


"We're treading water," the Ames man told the
people closest to him. "We continue to kick butt on missions and take care of each other, even though we know the American public and government DOES NOT stand behind us.

Ohhhh, they all say they support us, but how can you support me (the soldier) if you don't support my mission or my objectives. We watch the news over here. Every time we turn it on we see the American public and Hollywood conducting protests and rallies against our 'illegal occupation' of Iraq."

His greatest frustration? The performance of the people who deliver the news to the American people.

I'll let him say it, in his own words, in the letter, which found its way to me:

"Hello media, do you know you indirectly kill American soldiers every day? You inspire and report the enemy's objective every day. You are the enemy's greatest weapon. The enemy cannot beat us on the battlefield so all he does is try to wreak enough havoc and have you report it every day. With you and the enemy using each other, you continually break the will of the American public and American government.

"We go out daily and bust and kill the enemy, uncover and destroy huge weapons caches and continue to establish infrastructure. So daily we put a whoopin on the enemy, but all the enemy has to do is turn on the TV and get re-inspired. He gets to see his daily roadside bomb, truck bomb, suicide bomber or mortar attack. He doesn't see any accomplishments of the U.S. military (FOX,
you're not exempt, you suck also).

"Let's give you an example. A couple of days ago we conducted an air assault. We lifted troops into an area for an operation. The operation went well and our ground troops killed (insurgents) and took several prisoners, freed a few hostages and uncovered a weapons cache containing munitions and chemicals that were going to be used in improvised bombs.

"The next morning I woke up and turned on AFN (Armed Forces Network) and watched the nightly news (NBC). Nothing, none of that reported. But the daily car bomb report was reported, and the file footage was not even from the event. There was a car bomb in the Sadr City area and your news report showed old car bomb footage from another part of town from some other time.

"So we really set the enemy back that night but all the enemy had to do
was turn on the news and be reassured that the enemy's agenda (objective) was
still going to be fed to the American public.

"We, the soldiers, keep breaking the back of the enemy. You, the media, keep rejuvenating the enemy.

"How hard would it be to contact the PAO (public affairs officer) of the 1st CAV, 36th CAB, 25th ID or the Marines and ask what did you guys accomplish today - good and bad? How about some insurgent blooper videos? Now that would be
something to show on the evening news.

"Media, we know you hate the George Bush administration, but report both sides, not just your one-sided agenda. You have got to realize how you are continually motivating every extremist, jihadist and terrorist to continue their resolve to kill American soldiers."

It's a punch in the nose to the news media from Funk, 39, a full-time employee of the Iowa National Guard.

Why did he write it?

"I am just tired of busting my butt over here and coming home every
night and turning on the TV (Armed Forces Network) and hearing how we are
failing miserably," he told me in an e-mail.

You may agree with what Funk has to say. You may not.

Many in my business certainly won't. But Funk is a soldier, fighting a war, who has earned the right to be heard.

The Des Moines Register: A Conservative Rag?

I fear the end of the world is near...for I agree with a Des Moines Register editorial. A strange sensation to be sure:

Harkin's shriek about Shrek doesn't help child-obesity fight

Shrek is fat. We wouldn't be surprised if he had a stash of candy bars and chips in his dressing room. The sweet-natured ogre's belly hangs over his belt. He's sickly green - a color inconsistent with a healthful diet.

Sen. Tom Harkin [pictured] wants him to clean up his act.

The Iowa Democrat said it's "totally irresponsible" for the producers of the new kids movie "Shrek the Third" to allow the character to promote sugary, unhealthful foods because it damages kids' health.

Uh ... maybe because he just doesn't look like the kind of guy who eats salads and sprouts for lunch. And American businesses are interested in making money. That means advertising with characters like Shrek to help sell products.

Last we checked, that was the way things worked in this land of the free.

Likewise, parents are free not to buy the products - or to oversee their consumption in moderation.
Now the Register believes that people are responsible for their own actions? Parents control their children's eating habits? My God, what the hell is wrong with this world? I feel like I am living The Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Who took my bleeding heart liberal Register editorial board? What about the government solving all the world's problems?!?! I am so confused.

What will the liberal, Iowa blogs do? The mother brain has officially told people to think for themselves. Oh the chaos...
