War On Terror
Richard Belzer is an idiot. Even Bill Maher, who is about as crazy as you can get (let’s not deny this fact folks) told him that he was crossing the line with his comments about the soldiers. While on Maher’s radical HBO show, Belzer complained and said the soldiers in Iraq aren’t scholars, he implied that most of them aren’t very bright.
Belzer also made the bogus claim that the soldiers are in Iraq under “false pretenses”, then he went onto to cuss at the congresswomen who appeared with him on the show. The third guest, I’ve no idea who she was, seemed to have the sanity to stay out of the insanity. Common stuff to claim that the war was based on a lie…especially stupid to make such claim now that the Saddam documents are being released, further proving what we already knew- that there’s no evidence whatsoever to claim Bush or anyone in the administration lied about anything to do with Iraq.
Here is part of Belzer’s comments with the congresswoman:
Belzer: “You think everyone over there is a college graduate? They’re 19 and 20-year-old kids who couldn’t get a job-”
Ros-Lehtinen: “Yeah, you know because you’ve been there and-”
Belzer: “What, I don’t fucking read!? Don’t do that!”
Maher, over Belzer: “Woe, woe, woe. Come on. Wait, wait, wait. That, don’t.”
Belzer: “Pardon my French.”
Maher: “That was over the line and now you’re going to lose-”
Belzer: “It’s this patronizing thing that people have about if you’re against the war everyone’s lumped together. You know, the soldiers are not scholars, they’re not war experts-”
Maher: “You’re going to lose even me like Michael Moore did when he came down on Charlton Heston in Columbine.”
Richard Belzer- comedian, actor, and military scholar. Genius. Guess who won’t be paying to see anything Belzer is in? These Hollywood idiots burn bridges everytime they get the chance. You have to ask the simple question- why?
Michelle Malkin, and others, are dicussing the “editor’s note” ABC News put on their webpage regarding one of the newly released Saddam docs that link him to bin Laden and his terror group…
The MSM is at it again…When Dan Rather uses a source who is a well-known Bush-hater, obsessed with attacking Bush, it’s fine and no “note” is needed. When the NY Times incorrectly identifies people in photos from abu gharib, there’s no note (not until their error is caught by ANOTHER news agency and they’re FORCED into retracting the information.)
I could go on, but we all know the MSM is fairly worthless anymore.
It’s time for the Democrats who called the president a liar to apologize. A semi-full list of those I demand an apology from coming later…
Okay…so far tonight on Hannity and Colmes- Alan Colmes has attacked Sean Allen, the 16 yr old who taped his insane high school teacher who said the US was the most violent nation on earth. He basically bullied the kid.
Next, he complained to Ann Coulter, supporting the fact that a former Taliban official was allowed into Yale, despite his terrorist-loving activities and the fact he only has a 4th grade education.
For some reason, I think that Colmes might be out of his mind. If these two segments, the first two of the show, are any indicator, he definitely HAS.

Check out the video of Sean Allen from Hannity and Colmes tonight. The comments go along with the content of the interview.
Alan Colmes and Michael Gross disgust me for even defending Jay Bennish…and they make it even worse when they gang up to attack Sean Allen, who is how old? 14? 15? I wonder if they better about themselves- especially Gross, who decided he had some God-given right to “lecture” Sean Allen, and whine and bitch that he taped the class.
In Gross’ mind- a teacher should be able to spout of nonsense to his freshmen high school kids that the USA is the most violent nation on earth, and that maybe we deserved 9/11 (he said something about the WTC and Pentagon maybe being considered military targets), etc…yet he has the audacity to attack a kid who taped the teacher ranting like a loon about all of this!
The two of them wanted to paint Allen as a snitch who is merely out to get this poor poor innocent teacher whose done nothing wrong- Colmes made that clear when he tried to imply that Allen never taped the whole class and Colmes made the absurd claim that the kid shopped the tape around to a conservative media outlet. Hannity and Colmes covered the story last night and the night before- does this make Colmes a conservative media figure since he’s actually talked to the kid the past two days?
This was absurd behavior- not surprising from both, especially not Gross, who I have seen many times on the show, and the guy is just out of friggin mind (I say that with the utmost seriousness.) Congrats to Sean Allen for not allowing the moonbats to intimidate him.
Just wanted to share the view of the Freak Cam from Glenn Beck’s Insider service.
$6.95 a month for mp3 downloads of the show, live webcam feed of the show (with the show audio, of course), a 30 day streaming webcam archive, as well as the 30 day audio streaming archive (the streaming audio has the music and breaks in it- the music isn’t allowed in the downloads due to copyright issues). You also get access to the forums, classic audio bits, and much more.
I sound like a commercial for the Glenn Beck Program, I know…but I just think it’s a great deal, that’s all. I’m enjoying it so far, tho I have yet to listen to any of the “after show shows.” Need to check it out soon just to see what it’s like.
Bill O’Reilly has a lot of inside content for his subscribers as well- I think his service is $6.95 as well, but I can’t say for sure.
Yale University is a shameful school.
They allow a Taliban leader with a 4th grade education to attend the school (yet, I, as an American citizen who has never violated the law, nor have I ever been part of a terrorist regime cannot get into the school). Two Yale graduates have a new plan to send fake fingernails to Yale- why, you ask? Well, the Taliban used to pull the fingernails off of women who had the audacity to wear fingernail polish. This man has never apologized for his work with that regime, or the terror that regime brought upon the people of that nation, especially women who were treated like animals, as they usually are in muslim nations (the religion of peace ADORES women, don’t ya know?)
You can send fake fingernails to Yale at the address below. I might go get a couple boxes of press-on nails and a mailing envelope myself.

The UN is a worthless organization. You can deny it, but it doesn’t change the fact. Get together a group of nations- most of which are run by brutal thugs or even sometimes outright murderers with democratically elected men and women with civil societies that live in relative peace and you have what? A bunch of disagreement, very little being done, major scandals, obscenely ridiculous debacles and worse.
Here’s just one more reason why the UN is completely worthless:
U.N. Report Card: Handful of Nations, Including Israel, Stand with U.S.
Exclusive from NewsMax:
The exclusive NewsMax annual feature “United Nations Report Card” reveals that when it comes to supporting the U.S. on key issues, almost every nation in the world body gets a failing grade.
NewsMax examined 12 key General Assembly votes taken on issues of critical importance to the U.S., and found that only four countries – Israel and the Pacific Ocean nations of Palau, Micronesia and Marshall Islands sided with the U.S. on most of the issues.
The rest of the U.N. members voted against the U.S. position the vast majority of the time, and dozens of countries voted along with America ZERO PERCENT of the time.
These nations include some of the biggest recipients of U.S. foreign aid, which in some cases amounts to hundreds of millions of dollars a year. [Editor's Note: Get our special UN Report Card report with our cover story on Maria Shriver FREE -- Go Here Now.]
Here’s a run down of America’s most ungrateful friends:
Turkey receives $1.007 Billion a year from the U.S., not including military assistance. Number of times Turkey voted along with the U.S. on the 12 key issues: 0 Percent.
Ethiopia receives $594 million. Number of times it voted along with the U.S.: 0 percent.
Colombia receives $524 million, Egypt gets $460 million, Jordan pockets $224 million and Peru receives $229 million. Number of times these nations voted along with the U.S.: 0 percent.
Even some of America’s closest allies voted against U.S. interests. France, Germany, Italy, Japan and South Korea, for example, all sided with the U.S. on just 8 percent of the votes.
The issues voted on included a resolution calling for the U.S. – which shoulders 22 percent of the total U.N. budget – to lift its embargo against communist Cuba, another seeking the immediate withdrawal of Israel from Palestinian territory, and a treaty that would ultimately call for the U.S. to dismantle its nuclear arsenal.
NewsMax Magazine will chronicle the General Assembly votes each year, exposing the “most ungrateful” nations – countries that take Americans’ tax dollars, then oppose the U.S. when voting on key issues.
The blockbuster NewsMax report also features a look at “The U.N.’s Great Follies,” including:
The U.N. voted to remove its forces from Rwanda in the early days of tribal conflicts there. Result: More than 900,000 Tutsis were slaughtered in April 1994.
The Iraqi people were defrauded of at least $1.8 billion in revenue from the oil-for-food program designed to alleviate civilian suffering resulting from sanctions against the Saddam Hussein regime. Alleged wrongdoers included the U.N. secretariat.
Sudan won re-election to the U.S. Commission on Human Rights in 2004 despite potentially genocidal atrocities in the Darfur region.
U.N. peacekeepers in the Congo allegedly used food and money to pay for sex with girls as young as 12.

Norm Coleman appeared on The Factor last night and talked about his new bill that would demand all ports be run by only American companies. I’m all for that personally. I think, from the little research I’ve done on the subject, that the port system has poor security to begin with, and there’s all sorts of changes that need to be made over time. Checking ALL containers for radioactive materials would be a good idea in my book- according to the information I found online, we only check around 37% of the containers for radioactive material (materials that could be shipped in to make dirty bombs), but I say we need to check 100% of containers for this sort of thing. 37% is basically pointless- it’s like going to the casino and the odds are very much against you- that’s not security, it’s foolishness.
Now, Coleman’s bill, I haven’t read it, I only heard his points on The Factor, would be retroactive- it would require all companies to be American-based, with background checks on all employees (this sounds like common sense, but from what he said- this isn’t even mandatory)…and there would be something in the law to give these companies time to hand over the reigns to American firms, deal with the economic issues involved, etc.
Picking on UAE, as was the case with this port deal in question, was a bad idea- the nation has allied with us in the war on terror, and as has been noted by so many- we need to ally with nations in the middle east and elsewhere to make sure we can get their cooperation in the war on terror. We need to make sure that we keep alliances in good standing in order for these nations to capture terrorists and gladly hand them over, share intelligence, and much more.
I think Coleman’s idea is a good one- let’s not offend allies, even if they’re not the best guys on the planet- if we screw over allies that aren’t so great, we run the risk of losing out on intelligence, the chance to grab terrorists found in these nations, and other vital aspects that will help us win the war on terror. All American companies running American ports works for me…some will oppose this idea because of the foreign capital coming in, or others will complain that we’re offending allies- but, in the end, this policy would be all or nothing. We won’t have to single out one nation or another, which might hurt our relationships with them- that’s a good thing in my book.
Maybe there are aspects to Coleman’s bill that would be a disaster in terms of the economy or other aspects…I can just say that from hearing what he had to say about the plan, it makes sense and sounds reasonable. But, this is only the start of many changes that need to be made and sooner rather than later.
