This Blog Is Moving

Greetings. After this weekend, this Take Our Country Back Blog will be moving to the new web site. Too many conservatives are getting zapped by the intolerant dweebs of the Obama Goons and seeing that this editing platform is a free site, Blogger can do pretty much what it feels like doing. Hence, I now have a paid site and will be migrating the last 1400+ posts shortly.

So, one day, you just may click this page somewhere and it will show up as "private". It has been fun but the intolerant Czarbie Goon Squads are brain dead idiots. They can come play at the new site which I OWN outright.

The Leftinistra Blink...AGAIN!!

One supposes that perhaps at a 3% approval rating, the Democratic Party Vaunted "majority" is in severe damage control.

From Slate

The Washington Post leads, and the Wall Street Journal tops its worldwide newsbox, with the Senate's last-minute approval of a Republican plan to overhaul terrorist surveillance laws, following a bitter row between the White House and Democratic lawmakers. The LA Times leads, and the New York Times off-leads, on heightening tensions on the Hill, as Democrats wrestle with stalled legislation and struggle to contain the fallout from allegations of vote-stealing. The NYT leads on the stock market's continuing woes amid fears that ailing mortgage and debt markets could take a toll on the wider economy.

The new spy laws approved yesterday by the Senate would expand the government's authority to eavesdrop without a court order on overseas phone calls and emails. Democrats initially said the legislation was too sweeping, and accused the White House of trying to wreck an existing deal; President Bush warned that he might seek to keep Congress in session until they passed the legislation. Senators eventually caved in, earning swift condemnation from privacy campaigners who predicted the laws would be used to eavesdrop on US citizens. Senate majority leader Harry Reid accused Republicans of rubber-stamping a flawed proposal, but noted that the measure would need to be re-approved in six months' time. The LAT and the NYT both note that the House is expected to pass an identical bill later today.

Congress starts to listen

As well they should. This DAV is Sick and Tired of the CONgress Critters putting life-time election cycles ahead of National Security and the GWOT.

Not unlike J.P. Morgan locking the nation's key bankers in a room and refusing to let them leave until they fixed the Panic of 1907, President Bush yesterday forbade the Democratic Congress from leaving Washington on August break until it damn well did something about wiretap protocols.

It looks like it did the trick. After a night of acrimonious debate, the Senate voted to give Bush for six months the eavesdropping power he had sought, with permanent fixes to be decided over that time. The House is set to take up the matter today.

It's preposterous that things come to this at all, given the assessment of U.S. intelligence professionals that we should consider ourselves on elevated alert. Given, for that matter, the urgent warning from National Intelligence Director Mike McConnell that all-too-hamstrung government listening posts are "missing a significant portion of what we should be getting."
