Patrick Buchanan Reflection

I'm leaving on business at the beginning of next week so I'll be "blogging lite" until next weekend. It's always nice to travel alone, meeting new people and seeing the United States from a different perspective.

With that said, I'd like to leave on a quote from Patrick Buchanan's new book, "State of Emergency," in which he talks about the current immigration issue. You can read all of Patrick Buchanan's articles here on his new website. He's quite the controversial politician and very outspoken, but he is a man of principles and very intelligent at that. Some are undoubtedly upset with him over his view of GWB and some administration policies but all in all, Buchanan is defending the conservative view and disagreements will occur.

The promised quote:

By 2050 there will be almost 2.5 times as many people here as in 1960: 420 million. The share of the population of European descent will be a minority as it is today in California, Texas and New Mexico. And that minority will be aging, shrinking and dying. There will be as many Hispanics here, 102 million, as there are Mexicans today in Mexico...

Happy Thanksgiving

I want to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving. I also want to remind everyone to thank God for all of the men and women that couldn't be at home with their families because they are fighting for our freedoms. Without them, we could not give thanks.

Thank you Lord for this great country and blessing us all.

New Members of BARC

I'd like to take this time to introduce two new members of "Bloggers Against Red China." They both cover the PRC issue in great detail and both blogs will be nice reads.

Dad29 has an extensive array of criticism ranging from our trading status with China to local Wisconsin politics. It is one of my daily reads and I've snatched a piece of his latest coverage on Red China:

Military buildup, spying on US defense secrets, IP theft, slave labor, murder-for-profit in body parts, brutal suppression of religious believers...

The 'Greatest Culture on the Planet,' eh?

Newt Gingrich and Bill Clinton still have to explain their MFN/PNTR concessions to this monster.

Read the entire post here: China Is Our Friend!! Part 489220.

More of Dad29's articles are listed below:

China is our Friend Part 49639
China is our Friend Part 385946
China is our Friend Part 45875

Now on to the second addition. St. Jimbob of the Apokalypse hosts the blog Shaking Off Sleep which also covers a variety of topics from his recent Catholic re-conversion to the perils of the communist regime. Here's a taste of his recent articles:

I'm really tired of seeing how Catholics are treated in China, and having people speak about how engagement is going to bring change. Ok, you want change? Here it comes:

I ain't buying anymore of their crap!

You can read the entire article here: Can We Buy their Freedom

Or this one:

Maybe it's time to start going for the companies that manufacture goods over there, and persuade them that while China may be cheapest, they're materially assisting the Maoist government in persecuting their people. If enough large companies start pulling out, or threatening to, the government may stop this kind of oppression. Any other suggestions?

More of St. Jimbob's articles are listed below:

Render Unto Mao...
Of Mice and Martyrs

Two great additions to the Blogroll. I recommend checking both blogs out as they're as entertaining as they are insightful.

Red China Threatening the Freedom of Taiwan

As expected, China is beginning to stockpile an arsenal aimed at Taiwan in an apparent effort to take back the country once under Chinese rule. The World Tribune reports:

China continues its planning to invade Taiwan and now has more than 900 missile targeted on the island, Taiwanese officials said last week.

"Despite China's impressive economic rise, it has become more authoritarian, posing a grave threat to our sovereignty and abusing human rights like never before," Taiwanese President Chen Shuibian said.

Mainland Affairs Council Chairman Joseph Wu also said in Taipei that China is a threat and has supported some of the world's most notorious violators of human rights.

Chinese missiles are located in five bases in nearby Fujian Province. Additionally, China now has 11 military satellites in orbit.

As mentioned before, this was totally expected but the bigger problem is our vow to the Taiwanese people. We've promised to protect their freedom at all costs and I'm curious to see what Red China intends to do about this. With the imminent battle ahead, does China give up a lucrative country like us to control a smaller area of land?

China has flexed it's muscles in the past but these types of military moves only shows their true intentions. We need the help of Japan, SKorea, and Australia to persuade China against this move.

In related news, Chinese President Jintao intends on helping Pakistan build nuclear power plants. Read the full Reuters article here.

Viva Las Vegas

I'm in Las Vegas for the week on "work" so I won't be posting or commenting until next weekend. I'll try and not have too much fun.

And all the Kings Men...

Well, there is some house-cleaning going on, some voluntarily and some not. This is probably going to go on for a while and sadly, we may see some good people leave. I for one am not happy about Rumsfeld's leave, as I thought he was doing a fine job.

Now, it is being reported that Ken Mehlman plans on leaving the top spot of the Republican National Committee. Apparently, "...Mehlman, whose party lost both chambers of Congress in the midterm elections, will step down from his post when his two-year term ends in January, GOP officials said Thursday." This comes as a surprise because not only was he a strong leader but also because of his close relationship to Rove.

This isn't quite a resignation but we all know it's coming. Bolton's appointment is looking quite bleak with the control of both houses switching to the Democrats. He was never appointed to the UN ambassador role but only had a temporary position granted by Bush until congress reconvenes. If the Democrats get their way, which they will, Bolton will be unemployed.

I think the pins will keep falling until Dean goes back on his word...

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

I did see this coming, I knew that this would happen, and I want to give some thanks to where it is due:

Thanks to the Republicans that sold their souls.
Thanks to the Republicans that didn't listen to their constituents.
Thanks to the "conservatives" that acted more like puppets.
Thanks to the Democrats that ran with no platform and still pulled it off.
Thanks to Michael J. Fox for lying through your teeth.
Thanks to all of the newly registered voters that went into '06 educated by the media.
Thanks to the media for keeping it "straight", especially on the war.

If it weren't for all of you, this might not have happened.

Now, how does that old line go... "But I digress...."

What's more important here is what Rush had to say today: "I feel liberated..." Limbaugh feels free from defending the RINOs and the pathetic SIG controlled Republicans and obviously, I couldn't agree more. The next two years should be an epiphany for us as conservatives to realize what we've jeopardized and that we really need to make amends for 2008. This isn't a loss for the Republicans, it's a loss for the conservatives that sold themselves.

This is a time for change.

On a positive note, all of the liars that tried tricking Wisconsin voters into voting "No" failed miserably. I'm glad you invested millions of advertising dollars into lies that didn't succeed. Wisconsites have agreed with a 60% majority that marriage is defined in Wisconsin as the union of a man and a woman. Even though my state re-elected a crook for governor and a new democratic house in the state, at least we have some morality left.

I apologize for the varying lack of images on my web page but apparently I've exceeded my allowed band width through my image provider. I'll need to replace all of the images onto a new site. This might take a few days. I apologize for the inconvenience, please be patient.


Iraqi Kurdistan Prime Minister Nerchivan Barzani
Speaks with Parents of Fallen U.S. Troops in Iraq


"CNN International and Al Jazeera are equally bad in their coverage of the situation in Iraq"

(ERBIL, IRAQ) - The Prime Minister of the Iraqi Kurdistan regional government met with the families of fallen U.S. soldiers today and he had a message for the news media: your coverage of the Iraq war is terribly biased.

"CNN International and Al Jazeera are equally bad in their coverage of the situation in Iraq," said Nerchivan Barzani, Prime Minister of Iraqi Kurdistan.

"When I was in the United States recently and read the negative news in the Washington Post, New York Times and in the network TV broadcasts, I even wondered if things had gotten so bad since I had left that I shouldn't return," said Prime Minister Barzani.

The comments came during meetings between the Prime Minister and the delegation of Gold Star Families who are on a historic trip to Iraq. These families lost a child in Operation Iraqi Freedom, and they are in Iraq now to see the progress being made that their children gave their lives for.

Yesterday they joined the people in Iraq in celebrating the GUILTY verdict handed down against the murderous former dictator of Iraq, Saddam Hussein.

These American families are on a 10-day journey to Iraq to see the land where their children died in the fight against terrorism. Never before has such a coordinated delegation of Gold Star Families visited Iraq, and their arrival comes amidst news reports that Saddam Hussein had a nuclear weapons program under development before Coalition Forces toppled his regime.

The trip is organized by the nation's largest grass-roots pro-troop organization, Move America Forward which was founded in 2004.

More Saddam Sympathizers

I've just grabbed the first few paragraphs of an article covering the Hussein trial that I noticed had a slant in favor of Hussein. This was reported on and was written by Ibon Villelabeitia and Ahmed Rasheed.

"BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Three years after he gave himself up to American soldiers without firing a shot, Saddam Hussein may be condemned to hang on Sunday if an Iraqi court finds him guilty of crimes against humanity."

I don't recall anyone 'giving himself' up; we caught him in a foxhole hiding. I'm sure he would've went down in a blaze of glory if he had remembered his AK-47.

"The final act of Saddam's year-old first trial, the verdict is the high point of a historic, U.S.-sponsored experiment in international justice intended to unite Iraqis in exorcising three decades of rule by the former president, accused of mass killing and torture to keep power over Iraq's disparate people."

I love the term they use here: "U.S.-sponsored experiment." Yes, we experimented to see what would happen if we ousted the 'butcher of Baghdad' from power. We're actually applying for a grant on this experiment.

"If convicted, Saddam faces death by hanging, a prospect Shi'ite Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, with some disregard for judicial independence, has said cannot come soon enough."

Considering what happened, I don't see any problem with the PM looking forward to this case being finalized. It's not uncommon for presidential denouncements to murderers.

This is just another case of sympathizers to the Iraqi cause. It's utterly repulsive to read this "news."

Shots fired in Turkey Pope protest

This is reported on and the whole article can be seen here. I've extracted the first few paragraphs which I feel are most important:

ISTANBUL, Turkey (CNN) -- Police say they have arrested a man who allegedly fired a pistol into the air outside the Italian consulate in Istanbul, then shouted slogans in protest of Pope Benedict XVI's upcoming visit.

The man, who was identified by police sources as Ibrahim Ak, according to CNN Turk, threw the gun on the grounds of the consulate shortly before his arrest on Thursday.

"I don't want him here, if he was here now I would strangle him with my bare hands," the suspect, who identified himself as Ibrahim Ak, 26, told a Dogan news agency television camera as he was detained by police, according to The Associated Press.

"I fired the shots for God," Ak said as he sat handcuffed inside a police van outside the consulate. "Inshallah (God willing), this will be a spark, a starter for Muslims."

"God willing, he will not come, if he comes, he will see what will happen to him Inshallah," Ak said.

If they need extra security, I'd be happy to fly over and assist in any "crowd control." This is that type of bees nest that you don't want to throw stones at.

John Kerry is the Enemy.

Well, well, well. This picture is splattered all over the internet and rightfully so. I'm glad that our troops are reacting to the remarks. However, it is disheartening to know that our troops overseas have to hear the anti-war rhetoric of traitorous politicians. They now have to fight a "two-front" war, one against terrorists and the other against Bush-haters.

On the other hand, I'm happy that even thousands of miles away, our troops have the ability to express their views of these "politicians." They can show their disgust to the remarks any way they see fit, in this case on an over-sized sheet with a can of paint. Don't forget, we too have this right to express our views and in this case, it should be at the polls.

Hopefully these remarks encourage all to get out and vote. Hopefully his asinine remarks help some realize the true face of the Democratic party. In my eyes, Kerry just won the election for the GOP. He just showed his true colors and the true colors of his party. Some rats are jumping ship but for the most part, they choose to support his anti-American rhetoric.

I firmly believe that any politician who feels this way about our troops does not belong in office.
