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.

On Changing Directions and General Petraeus

~Snooper~
A Democratic senator on Saturday accused President Bush and congressional Republicans of hindering his party's attempts to chart a new course in Iraq even though U.S. troops are fighting violence "they cannot possibly resolve." [...]
That Democratic Party Senator (read Defeatist Troll) would be the Dishonorable Senator Bob Casey, D-PA. His "party's attempts to chart a new course in Iraq" is a defeatist course and is unacceptable to the vast majority of the American People and certainly not the course The United States Armed Services wants, needs or desires.

This same ignoramus also said the following:
[...] "They will face hatred they did not create and sectarian violence they cannot possibly resolve," Casey said. "They are doing a remarkable job, a heroic job, but the Iraqi leaders are not holding up their end of the bargain." [...]
Let us take a look at some developments that this fool and others like him cannot admit to and keep up with, shall we?
[...] Violence has fluctuated widely since the 2003 U.S. invasion. But analysts say recent improvements may continue because of more effective U.S. tactics and a rebellion against al Qaeda in Iraq by Sunni leaders in Anbar province.

Roadside bombing incidents have fallen by more than half since March. U.S. military deaths in October were at their lowest level since March 2006, and Iraqi civilian deaths were down about two-thirds from a 2007 high in January.

O'Hanlon said he believed the less violent conditions are likely to endure until Bush leaves office, despite the planned withdrawal of 20,000 U.S. combat troops by next July. [...]
The Defeatists are demanding troop withdrawals and the silly imps don't even know that this has already been planned. I sure wish they could keep up. I suppose that this is not an example, one of several hundred, that this is violence "that they cannot possibly resolve", eh? it seems that what the Defeatists are in fear of is that GWB was right after all and they, once again, are on the wrong side of this all so important issue. They are also in fear of a Victory in Iraq and we must ask ourselves why that is...exactly.

If you have been following our articles/news on the 101st Airborne, you will find this Good News that the Defeatocrats ignore. An occurrence such as this as well as many others could not take place as easy as it has without the cooperation of the locals that are overwhelmingly coming to the aid of coalition forces.

And, yes, I do question their patriotism as I do, have and, always will question these fools at Sadly, NO!'s patriotism. It is fools such as these that the Defeatocrats cater and pander to. One of these days, the Defeatocrats will figure out these trivial and insignificant trolls of their moonbat base is not representative of the vast majority of Americans. If they were, why do they have so much trouble changing course from victory to defeat? And, if this war is so illegal and so unconstitutional, why then, haven't charges been brought up seriously? The last attempt was shear bluster on the part of Kucinich.

The distraction techniques the Defeatocrats use are the epiphany they so fear. It marks forever their inability to lead. The Defeatocrats also do not understand the phrase God and Country.

From Q and O: Is the Cone of Silence on Iraq beginning to lift?
Yesterday I posted about Michael Yon's latest. I included the usual lament about lack of mainstream media coverage, as I have other times I've posted one of his dispatches. I've been referring to it as the "cone of silence" for a while, calling back to the old Get Smart television series that most of our readers are probably too young to remember.

I'm certainly not the only one who has noticed a dearth of coverage. Just yesterday, Investor's Business Daily said:
Which makes it all the more curious why major newspapers and network TV news programs can lead with a barrage of news out of Iraq when things there go bad, but can't seem to find the space or time when things turn good. As the bad news dries up, their interest in the good remains nil.

It takes people like Yon ... to tell us what's going on - not the highly paid prima donnas whose past reporting has made them so invested in defeat that they can no longer afford to tell us the truth.
However, this time one of our commenters, "glasnost", took me to task on the cone of silence assertion. His initial, and strongest, evidence consisted of three stories just yesterday in the New York Times. [...]

The Leftinistra thrive and lust for Bad News...it sooths the void that once was a home for their soul.

With Iran lending less and less help in Iraq, our troops are doing better at winning seeing that the proxy war with Iran is on hold for the time being. This is also bad news to the Defeatocrats.

One should also be able to conclude from the evident stupid actions of the Defeatocrats in recent days that the Good News flowing from the bowels of Iraq are simply too overwhelming for the cretins to accept and absorb into their collapsed cranial synapse pathways.

Michael Yon has several recent fantastic reports on previously thought to be impossible to take place. This Good News reporting comes on the heels of the Petraeus March To Victory. These reports can be found here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here.

Other Good News reports that totally frighten the likes of the Defeatocrats can be located here at The Victory Caucus.

At A Second Hand Conjecture, they have this to say about the likes of ReidCo:
[...] As the situation on the ground in Iraq continues to brighten, and a light begins to appear at the end of the war tunnel, is it the brightest thing in the world to starve the military at this juncture? Anti-War Democrats constantly harp on how Pres. Bush has "broken" the military. Do they feel any responsibility when they pull purely political stunts like this? I'm guessing not. [...]
Truly amazingly simple when you sit back and cut through the dross of distraction. Harry Reid and his kind cannot, will not, won't ever take responsibility for their own defeatist BS...his approval rating is 2 points below his nemesis GWB.

Petraeus Becoming Increasingly Important
Astute Bloggers
[...] The Petraeus Surge is working.

No greater proof of this is the fact that the MSM has virtually stopped reporting on the war there because almost all the military news is good.

The question remains for some critics: did it come too late, and why didn't it come earlier - as if Bush could gave done so in 2004 or 2005 or 2006. [...]
Very well stated...

Where The Netroots Have Everything All Wrong

~Snooper~

I wasn't going to give the KOSmonoffs the time of day over the socialist KOS going over the the Leftist Rag Newsweek until I read this piece. Let the Leftist spin begin...

We already know that the latest pathetic maneuver of blustering is to give the hallucination that ReidCo has a spine. He does but it is made of jello. This equally pathetic piece by a known Leftinistra outlet is grasping at straws...

Talk Left:

Newsweek's newest political contributor, Markos of Daily Kos, has his first column up about the war funding bills and how Democrats so far have failed to keep their promise.

It's the second most widely read article on Newsweek's site. Go on over and read it. Besides being really good, it'd be great to push him to Number One. A snippet:

If Reid and Pelosi stand firm they will finally fulfill one of their key 2006 campaign promises, proving they have the courage to stand tough for what they believe, while giving the vast majority of the American people what they want.

If they yield they will reinforce perceptions of Democratic weakness. Worse, they will be siding with an unpopular president and an unpopular Republican Party over an unpopular war, and their own popularity will suffer as a result.

The options to those of us outside of the Beltway are so obvious it's truly unfathomable that we are still left wondering which path the Democrats will take.

Congress is now on a two week break. The Senate returns December 3 and the House on December 4.

Really good? OMG! Sad, actually that seemingly intelligent types could be so easily swayed by ignorance and stupidity.

First of all, as I have previously stated on many a post and comment, if anyone EVER says that there is Ever a popular war, I will show you a complete fool.

Secondly, the "vast majority of American people" these idiots always refer to are non-existent. Not once have these poor Children of The Corn ever presented any substantiation for that piece of ignorant rhetoric. The obvious escapes the oblivious. If the VAST majority of Americans believed as these GOMERS did, the ReidCo Clan would not be having the problems they are having. Period. Dot. Com.

Thirdly, the "perceptions of Democratic weakness" is not a perception at all. It is a fact...a grim reality these sad sots cannot accept.

Fourthly, the Democrats "failed to keep their promises" because they lied and they are lying now and these idiots keep falling for their lies. Let me explain something to these poor deluded wonders. It can all be seen in an earlier posting today, right here at A Newt One.

The funding for the War In Iraq has already been previously funded PRIOR to the recent "monkeys humping a football" quagmire called debate in the House and Senate. All this dog and pony show was to give the illusion that ReidCo had a spine. He doesn't. He is a milquetoast, a fraud and a phony patriot. He is a liar. He has a sniveling pie hole and it needs to be stuffed with concrete.

Fifthly, if the Leftinistra allow this latest tom foolery to go on, approximately 100,000 folks are going to have a pretty pathetic Christmas, most of which are union voters. Well done.

Sixthly, the path the Democrats will take is the primrose path to that Abyss of Obscurity that the Conservative Tsunami is going to sweep them into.

Mona Charen Assails Ronniev Pauliev

~Snooper~

And, rightfully so. The guy is a fruit loop and if his voice gets any higher he could play a part in the young boys choir. The guy is a flake. It seems as though some Paultards, Pauliacs, fellow membrane dissolvers were writing (read that spamming) Mona and this is her reply:

Up at RCP:

[...] Ron Paul is inconsistent. Though he calls himself a man of principle and is apparently admired as such by his ardent fans, his principles seem somewhat elastic. He rails against the Bush administration for its supposed assault on civil liberties, yet when he was asked at one of the debates whether Scooter Libby deserved a pardon, he said no. [...]

Ron Paul is historically challenged. He argues that by embracing isolationism, he fits within a Republican tradition stretching back to Eisenhower "who stopped the Korean War" and including Nixon "who stopped the war in Vietnam." Let's recap. Eisenhower threatened to use nuclear weapons against China. It was the Eisenhower administration that had a hand in toppling Iran's Mohammad Mossedegh (an intervention that Paul has elsewhere cited as causing the U.S. grief 25 years later when the Islamists took power.) Eisenhower also intervened in Guatemala, Cuba (planning for the Bay of Pigs began during his tenure) and Lebanon. [...]

Ron Paul is unserious. Suggesting that you will eliminate the IRS, the CIA, the FBI and other government agencies within weeks of taking office is ridiculous. These are bumper stickers, not serious reform proposals.

Ron Paul is too cozy with kooks and conspiracy theorists. As syndicated radio host Michael Medved has pointed out, Ron Paul's newspaper column was carried by the American Free Press (a parent publication of the Hitler-praising Barnes Review). [...]

[...] Ron Paul is the favorite candidate of a number of racist, neo-Nazi and conspiracist websites. [...]

[...] Moreover, Paul seems to be playing a sly game with his conspiracy-minded fans. He does not explicitly endorse the crazier theories out there, but he hints at dark forces in the U.S. government threatening our liberties, he inveighs against the "neo-cons" (shorthand for Jews in some circles) and he gives aid and comfort to the paranoid by appearing on their favorite radio shows.

No, Ron Paul is not my candidate. Not for president. He might make a dandy new leader for the Branch Davidians.
You'll have to go read the rest by clicking the link. The tid-bits I placed here really doesn't do the article any justice. Suffice it to say, the vast majority of Americans think Ron Paul needs serious mental help.

How Does One Spell "Democratic Party"?: D.E.F.E.A.T.I.S.M.

~Snooper~


Seeing that the Presidential Elections are less than one year away, the Desperadoes of the Defeatist Party are under the illusion or dellusion that the far-left kook fringe of their "party" is Main Stream America.

This bluster before the holidays of Thanks Giving and Christmas reeks of bluster to this DAV. They cannot be this dumb. Can they?

Notice to the Defeatist Party...you are out of touch not only with the vast majority of Americans, you are suffering from the Vietnam Era Hippy Fest Stress Syndrome. This isn't the 60s/70s anymore and President Bush is not on the ballot for 2008. Neither is VP Dick Cheney. Hello? Is anybody out there?

Redstate:
I completely missed this in my first reading of Harry Reid's cowardly refusal to either fund our troops properly, or else face a showdown once and for all: [...]

[...]

I know that you don't give a damn about the troops, Harry Reid: but even for the Democrats, this is low. These unions are some of your most loyal supporters; they pay for your Party's activities. And this is how you repay them? By taking away their Christmas? For what? Whatever extra cash you can shake down from the antiwar movement? Wasn't wrecking thousands of staffers' Thanksgiving plans enough for you?

You vile, petty, little wretch of a man.

AMEN!!

Snakes and Lizards: these pathetic and blatant Leftinistra have everything all back-asswards.

Senate Dems gave the GOP an opportunity, but they rejected it.

The Senate on Friday blocked a Democratic proposal that would have paid for the Iraq war but required that troops start coming home.

The 53-45 vote was seven votes short of the 60 needed to advance. It came minutes after the Senate rejected a Republican proposal to pay for the Iraq war with no strings attached.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said the only way to get troops the money was to approve the restrictions outlined by Democrats.

"Our troops continue to fight and die valiantly. And our Treasury continues to be depleted rapidly, for a peace that we seem far more interested in achieving than Iraq's own political leaders," Reid said.

John Aravosis captured the situation perfectly: "[T]he Democrats were ready to give George Bush $50 billion for Iraq today and the Republicans killed it because they don't want to provide any oversight whatsoever. The Republicans think the war in Iraq is going great, and to prove it they just took $50 billion away from our troops."

Is that all askew, or what? These defeatist and moronic sore losers had better be more careful. It's not that I'm sayin'...I'm just sayin'.

The Defeatocrats don't give a rat's ass about the troops, not one damn bit and no matter their pathetic and transparent spin, we can see right through their intellectual idiocy. Especially that idiot, dunce and libtard ReidCo. Go back to your land fraud deals, ya little cretin.

Yahoo! News:

AP - Nearly a year after anti-war voters put them in power, congressional Democrats remain unable to pass legislation ordering troops home from Iraq. [...]

And that is because the American People want a victory and the Defeatists LIED to their far-left kook-fringe morons and anti-Americanists.

Wake Up America: Democrats Finally Being Honest: We Don't Support The Troops

[...] The bill demanding withdrawal from Iraq that the House passed on Weds, was rejected in the Senate today, making this 41 failed attempts to surrender in Iraq.

Also rejected was the motion to get the funds needed to our troops for munitions, food and other things needed by our troops, in a time of war.

Finally the Democrats are being honest enough to let the American people and our troops know they do not support them.

"We'd rather see the Department of Defense, the military planners and our troops focusing on military maneuvers rather than accounting maneuvers as they carry out their mission in the field," Fratto said. "I think Congress should send this money, allow these troops to get the equipment they need. There is no reason why they should not get the money. This isn't like this is a last-minute effort and call for funding."

He said the president sent his budget to Congress back in February last year. Along with that was the supplemental request for more than $145 billion for the global war on terror. The request last month was an augmentation to that request, but they've known that funding is needed, Fratto said.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Thursday that unless Congress passes funding for the war within days, he will direct the Army and Marine Corps to begin developing plans to lay off employees and terminate contracts early next year.

Gates, who met with lawmakers on Wednesday, said he does not have the money or the flexibility to move funds around to adequately cover the costs of the continuing operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.

"There is a misperception that this department can continue funding our troops in the field for an indefinite period of time through accounting maneuvers, that we can shuffle money around the department. This is a serious misconception," Gates told reporters at the Pentagon.

As a result, he said, he is faced with the undesirable task of preparing to cease operations at Army bases by mid-February, and lay off about 100,000 defense department employees and an equal number of civilian contractors. A month later, he said, similar moves would have to be made by the Marines.
I much rather the Democratic politicians do it this way, because it takes the illusion they have been trying to dupe the public with, away, and shines a light right on the fact that they are weak on defense and that they do not now, nor have they, really supported the troops in the field.

Actions are louder and more truthful than words. [...]
And that right there is a bloody mouthful! But, wait! there's more.

Doug Ross:
Whether it's trying to cut off funding for the troops...or declaring the "war is lost" just weeks before the war was won...or simply demoralizing the U.S. military, Harry Reid's mission is clear:


Fortunately, today's Democratic leadership is so unpopular and so incompetent that their chances of achieving defeat are roughly equivalent to the odds that Reid will be hit by an asteroid while accepting an Oscar. [...]
Clarification: apparently, this how the coward ReidCo perceives himself and we all know what perceived reality leads to...schizophrenia.

Apparently, my gut call was correct in that the transparency of this "bluster" is all too obvious. With that said, read this from The Weekly Standard:
The debate over the administration request for funding for the Iraq war in 2008 is growing increasingly complex. As we've covered here, Democrats wrote a Department of Defense funding bill which specifically authorized the Bush administration to borrow funds from regular accounts to conduct the Iraq war for several months, at least. It was clearly the intent of House Democratic leaders to make a show of 'defying the White House' on Iraq funding for several months, secure in the knowledge that they had already acted to prevent any crisis in Iraq funding. The House has now passed Iraq supplemental funding legislation that is dead on arrival, and Congressional leaders assure the White House that no money will be forthcoming until they change course.

It's almost certain that this is just bluster. After all, if Congressional leaders really intended to play a game of chicken, why give the White House a way to access Iraq funds in the defense bill? If they truly intended to blackmail the Pentagon--change course, or else--then why make sure to give DoD the funds it needs to continue the war?

The only logical conclusion is that Congress intended to head off for Christmas and New Year's, bragging to their constituents that they've not given in; that they'll force the White House to come around. Then they could cave after the holidays--perhaps in February, when all attention is focused on the primaries. [...] (emphasis mine)
Bingo. Surely, if this is what the liars of the Leftinistra Cabal of the likes of ReidCo want the illusion to be, and Union jobs are lost just in time for Christmas, then, there goes a herd of voters. When one loses a job just before Christmas and knows ahead of time that which is about to be, the memory sticks don't get erased.

This headline won't set well with voters. Gateway Pundit: Congress Denies Troop Funding- Army & Marines Will Plan Layoffs

This is quaint from SFGate:
[...] Schumer, D-NY, had told reporters that unless Bush accepted the restrictions, the Defense Department would have to eat into its core budget.

"The days of a free lunch are over," he said. [...]
Free lunch? Is this guy a complete moron? Wait. Don't answer that one.

From Right Voices:
Michelle linked to this story and says: "Enjoy your Thanksgiving turkey, Harry"

The Senate on Friday blocked a Democratic proposal to pay for the Iraq war but require that troops start coming home.

The 53-45 vote was 15 votes short of the 60 needed to advance. It came minutes after the Senate rejected a Republican proposal to pay for the Iraq war without strings attached.

The Republican measure failed by an identical vote.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said the only way to get troops the money was to approve the restrictions outlined by Democrats.

"Our troops continue to fight and die valiantly. And our Treasury continues to be depleted rapidly, for a peace that we seem far more interested in achieving than Iraq's own political leaders," said Reid, D-Nev.

So Iraq doesn't want peace?

ACTION ALERT!! Move America Forward

~Snooper~


ATTENTION TO ORDERS!

The Following was received in an email message from Move America Forward (Mary Pearson).

SHAME ON THIS WOMAN:
FOR SHUTING DOWN THE BOY SCOUTS EFFORTS TO SUPPORT OUR TROOPS!

Meet Marsha Weinerman, a city official from Cambridge, Massachusetts.

She's made news recently because she decided to shut down the Boy Scouts care package collection boxes. You see, the Boy Scouts were sending care packages for our troops to enjoy at the holidays. But Marsha Weinerman said the Boy Scouts actions are 'too pro-war' and ordered law enforcement to remove the care package collection boxes.

The Boy Scout's troop leader is outraged:

"We have never seen anything like this decision in Cambridge before," Patterson wrote. The city is changing for the worse if decisions like this are allowed to be made."

Contact Ms. Weinerman and let her know that it is our troops' service that protects the rights of all Americans-including our freedom to vote: mWeinerman@cambridgema.gov

Or call Ms. Weinerman's office at: (617) 349-4363

You can show up Ms. Weinerman and those opposed to our troops by sponsoring a Christmas/holiday care package for our troops-and we'll be more than happy to send it over to Iraq and Afghanistan with love and appreciation:

And here's more on this story:

Melanie Morgan's got more on the story here:

Complete report at Move America Forward's "Daily File Blog"

Melanie Morgan also references this in her brand new WorldNetDaily column here:
[...] While these teenage troublemakers and their graying pony-tailed elders chant protests and go home to a warm house and a hot meal, they cannot be bothered to send a care package or a note of thanks or a Christmas card to the troops who they claim to support.

In Cambridge, Mass., the Boy Scouts were even ordered to remove collection boxes that gathered items for care packages for our troops.

Local city official Marsha Weinerman accused the Boy Scouts of being too "pro-war". (Those of you who wish to accuse Ms. Weinerman of being too anti-American are invited to do so by e-mailing her at mWeinerman@cambridgema.gov - be sure to let her know that, unlike her, most Americans are determined to show our troops we love and support them during the holiday season.)

Perhaps Marsha Weinerman and the city officials of Cambridge would be more interested in checking out the current calendar of Code Pink, which lists efforts to shut down military recruiting centers with "Breastfeeding/Playgroup for Peace" and "Circus Acts: Juggling for Peace." Here's their calendar for subverting victory. [...]

101st Airborne Screamin' Eagles Update

~Snooper~

They are on the prowl folks. We present these in the hopes that if any of our readers have loved ones in the mix, they can be spotted here via the pics and vids. These stories, pics and vids are brought tom us by DVIDS.

Baghdad - Operation Marne Courageous kicked off in the early morning of Nov. 16 with more than 600 coalition forces and Iraqi army soldiers moving into two villages near the border of Anbar province to drive out al-Qaida in Iraq, and lay groundwork for a sustained coalition presence.

Soldiers of the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), were joined by about 150 Iraqi army soldiers in the air assault on the Sunni villages of Owesat and al Betra, west of the Euphrates River and approximately 15 miles southwest of Baghdad.

Troops were transported in four helicopter lifts across the Euphrates, utilizing two CH-47 Chinook helicopters and eight UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters. A Marine reconnaissance platoon, as well as Soldiers of the 1st Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, stationed in neighboring Anbar province, secured the landing zone.

Once on the ground, the U.S.-Iraqi force was supported by an air weapons team of Apache and Kiowa helicopters, while approximately 70 Iraqi Concerned Local Citizens assisted in securing the outlying perimeter.

While U.S. and Iraqi forces moved through the villages, other troops set to work constructing a bridge across the Euphrates to allow for the transport of materials and supplies to build a patrol base in the area. The base will allow for a sustained coalition presence in the area of Owesat, part of Baghdad’s southwestern "belts."

No enemy fighters were killed or captured during the assault.

Prior to the air assault, U.S. F-16 fighter jets dropped two 2000-pound bombs on an island in the Euphrates that was believed to be used by AQI as a staging ground for attacks. The bombardment was part of a "terrain denial" strategy, cutting off a potential AQI escape route and denying the enemy a location to regroup.

Marne Courageous' main strategic thrust is to clear AQI extremists from the area of Owesat, establish a coalition presence, and develop a concerned citizens program in the area as a bulwark against further enemy activity.

Army Col. Dominic Caraccilo, commander of the 3rd BCT, 101st Abn. Div., described the mission to journalists Nov. 11. "We're going to put a footprint there. We're going to establish a forward operating base," he said. [...]

[...] We have no money. We have no products. We have no records to even know what was ordered or what you are owed. We have nothing but the will to push forward and overcome this massive assault on our liberty and our right to have real money as defined by the US Constitution. We should not to be defrauded by the fake government money. [...]
Apparently, by the verbiage transmitted in this letter, they were getting ready to distribute Ron Paul money...funny money. Is that legal?

I have been monitoring several news outlets for a Breaking News Story from Fox News in regards to Coalition Forces (read that SO) finding 40(+) biological/chemical (and nuclear) masks in a "insurgent" safe house and torture house in Diyala Province, Iraq.

I wonder what this Emir was up to?

Spree has a story running on this as well. We will keep y'all updated as the story unfolds.
I just heard it on the news and I will link when it hits the web but they are reporting that 40 biological and chemical warfare masks have been found in a torture house where al-Qaeda was executing people.

The possibilities at this point are two-fold.

1st: They were expecting to be attacked by biological or chemical weapons and had the masks to protect themselves.

#2: They were planning to use biological or chemical weapons and had the masks so it would not affect them.

They also found substantial weapon caches at that location.

As more news come out I will provide the links and more information.

Developing....

It could also be a stash that has gone undetected until now, in preparation for use against the US and others in the Free World.

Intel Reports: Saddam Could Have Had Nukes By 2007
[...] Saddam may not have had nuclear weapons in his arsenal in 2003, but if the United States would have bowed to international pressure and backed down from Saddam rather than invading, then the intelligence is overwhelming that he would have become a nuclear power in 2007; today. This isn't supposition or reading tea leaves either. It’s where this week's news stories come to the forefront. [...]
Great article over at Flopping Aces...go read it. Political Vindication has a good piece as well.

Ray Robison reports the same conclusions as does Ace and Newsbusters. There is more at MRC and macsmind. The Newsbusters coverage is outstanding.


[A Newt One UPDATE]

Fox News FINALLY comes up with video and a story to actually read. Spree and I have been following this closely and this is from Spree...
[...] [Update] They are now saying the house was also being used as a bomb making factory at one time.

[Update #2] The house was in Diyala Province, Iraq. [Once an al-Qaeda stronghold]

[Update #3] They are now announcing that Iranian arms and ammo has also been found in the torture house.

Flashback: Remember that back in March they were reporting that Chlorine attacks had been repulsed, in March that was the eighth attack of that kind.

Still waiting for links to hit the web to show you.

As more news come out I will provide the links and more information.

Developing....

Snooper at A Newt One is also all over the news on this too with some interesting links.

[Update #4] Finally a link online to the story:

BAGHDAD — Coalition troops in Iraq found a torture house with five skeletons and 40 nuclear, biological and chemical weapons masks, a U.S. general told FOX News on Thursday.

Brig. Gen. James Boozer said forces found execution equipment and chains in the house in the Diyala River Valley, an Al Qaeda stronghold north of Baghdad, as he touted progress in bolstering Iraqi security forces and said Iran seems to be holding to a commitment to thwart the flow of weapons into Iraq.

• Click here to view video.

"I think we're at here an historical point in the history of Iraq," said Boozer, commander of Multi-National Division-North in Iraq.

Boozer said it appears Iran is keeping its promise to Iraqi leaders to helping stop the flow of roadside bombs into Iraq, which has contributed to a decrease in attacks.

"We've seen no increase in or any indication that the Iranians have stepped up the influx of arms or weapons into Iraq. It looks like they are holding up to their agreement," he said.
This is the second time we have seen reports about a decline in Iranian weapons coming into Iraq... thats a good thing.

More to follow as others begin reporting...

If the idgits at Salon knew what they were talking about, maybe someone would take them seriously.
The Republican will to power remains ferocious. It will take a dauntless Democratic leader to win back the White House and restore dignity to the Constitution. [...]

Hillary sinks her own boat before she can release her three-step plan to end the War In Iraq...

Tally Now: 0 and 41 (White Flaggers Lose...Again)

~Snooper~

I wonder how the likes of PelosiCo and ReidCo sleep at night or, do the voices in the head of Kucinich speak to them?

Catch the wave:
Secondary Wave:

mm.com:
[...] Just about an hour ago, the Dems passed their Iraq withdrawal bill, tying $50 billion in war funding to a demand that President Bush start bringing troops home in coming weeks (never mind that it's already starting) with a mandated timetable of ending combat by December 2008: [...]
NYSlimes:
The House on Wednesday approved $50 billion of the nearly $200 billion that President Bush had requested for military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan but attached many strings to the measure, virtually guaranteeing that Senate Republicans would block it. [...]
And, seeing that the Democcrats thrive for defeat, this too, should make them happy...it has no chance of passing muster. I wonder if they know that they are actually prolonginig this war with their aiding and abetting the enemy..

Think Like A Horse's butt:
Tonight, the House of Representatives voted 218-203 to pass a $50 billion funding bill for Iraq that would require withdrawal of most U.S. troops from Iraq to begin within 30 days of the bill's enactment, with a completion goal of Dec. 15, 2008. The AP reports: [...]
Read the rest for a clear understanding of the Enemies Within...

The Politico:
[...] Update - White House Press Secretary Dana Perino just issued the following statement on the House vote: "Today the House of Representatives passed on a largely party-line vote legislation that would only partially fund our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, but fully embolden our enemies. Once again, the Democratic leadership is taking this debate down a well-worn path that calls for arbitrary withdrawal from the battlefield, despite the gains our military has made over the past year. These votes, like the dozens of previous failed votes, put the interests of radical interest groups ahead of the needs of our military and their mission. If legislation comes to the President in this form, he will certainly veto it." [...]
And, after the veto and the veto is sustained, the Wasters of Time And Money will go down in flames...again thus, having the infamous score card of 0 and 41 for defeat.

On the very verge and edge of total victory, the White Flag Cowards and Defeatocrats wish so very desperately to hand the terrorists a victory. Truman, Roosevelt and Kennedy are turning in their graves.

Victory and Good News; Victory and Good News; time and time again, and these camel vomit eaters called Democrats cannot fathom victory. Why? It will signal their demise and end once and for all. Notice to the Defeatocrats...your end is nigh. Bank on it.

Move America Forward: Roots of Patriotism

~Snooper~


As we have been saying for quite some time, True American Patriotism is on the rise. I received this email today and, as Spree said in her email, help me spread the word please:

The subject in the email states: Shhh! Don't let Code Pink or MoveOn See This Patriotism!
On Tuesday, November 13th, Move America Forward hosted the first event in what will be a 40-city cross country pro-troop tour to rally the American public to support our troops and their missions.

Along the way we're asking the public (including you) to help us collect and send over 100,000 Christmas, Hanukkah and holiday cards to our troops. The media coverage we got from our first event was outstanding - some of the best reporting you'll see about our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Please spread the word on these reports below. And help us collect those 100,000 cards for our troops during the Christmas and Hannukah holiday season.

The Angry Little "Profit", Ron Paul, Loses Honor In His Home State

Via Wake up America by request from Snooper.

Ron Paul is having trouble in his home state of Texas. In September, Paul finished third in a straw poll of 1,300 Texas Republican activists who had been delegates to recent Republican conventions, according to The Hill.

The congressman corralled just 17 percent of the votes cast, trailing California's Duncan Hunter with 41 percent.

This outcome says Texas Republicans aren't terribly concerned about viability. Otherwise, one of the national front-runners like Rudy Giuliani or Mitt Romney would have beaten these long-shots. But if they were willing to "waste" their votes on Hunter, why didn't most back a fellow Texan? The truth is that Ron Paul, the angry prophet, has little honor in his own land. He's about to lose his congressional seat.
They also point out the problems for his next reelection chances in his home state:

Zoom ahead to this election cycle, almost four years later. Recent polling by another Texas Republican pollster confirms that Paul's electorate doesn't appreciate the increasingly leftish libertarian bent of Paul's voting record. In the eyes of voters, Paul is now also wrong to oppose the Patriot Act, off base on energy policy that affects Texas enormously, and to be faulted for knee-jerk opposition to the fight against terror in the Middle East.

The difference this time is that Paul's critics have a bona fide challenger lined up: Chris Peden, a mainline social conservative who has distinguished himself opposing the tax hijinks of local elected officials. If Paul files to run for both Congress and the presidency by the Jan. 2 deadline, he'll likely lose to Peden on March 4. That'll be OK, though. Dr. Paul can just move to New Hampshire where the libertarian Free State Project might try and elect him their first governor, leveraging the boost in name ID and image that his presidential bid will have wrought. Good riddance.
The author of that piece is David Hill and is the director of Hill Research Consultants, a Texas-based firm that has polled for GOP candidates and causes since 1988.


Coming in behind California's, Duncan Hunter by 24% shows that the good state of Texas has had it with Paul shenanigans and there is a window of opportunity for Texans to boot him out at his next election.

Follow up with some more interesting figures and facts about Ron Paul here.

Catch the wave.

ACTION ALERT For A Newt One Readers

~Snooper~

Grassroots rallying point: Alec Rawls has contacted us here at A Newt One via email; message follows:

Dear John and Snooper: Several bloggers are posting a letter to Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne today, trying to bring him into the loop on the Islamic and terrorist memorializing features of the planned Flight 93 memorial. They are asking their readers to click an email script, paste the letter in, and send it to Kempthorne and Tancredo, but they are just posters. They aren’t set up for activism like you guys. Any chance you could ask your readers to send this along? Tancredo has been a great help, asking the Park Service last week to scrap the crescent design entirely. We have their attention now, and the letter to Kempthorne is to try to broaden the circle amongst people who can actually do something about this. It also lets Tancredo’s people know that we are on it an are backing him. My post is at: Error Theory I am pasting a copy of the post below, and the HTML below that. Keep up the great work, Alec Rawls

A Newt One gladly accepts the awesome responsibility to see this issue through to the bloody end. We have had Alec on the America Truth Warriors Show a few times and we join in this effort with Tom Tancredo.

Please join us and many of our fellow Conservative bloggers to crush the effort to memorialize terrorists...our enemies...by the United States Parks Service. The letter to copy and paste and send is here:

Dear Secretary Kempthorne:

Please heed Congressman Tom Tancredo's call to completely scrap the present design for the Flight 93 Memorial. The original Crescent of Embrace design would have planted a bare naked crescent and star flag on the crash site:


The memorial plaza that sits roughly in the position of the star on an Islamic flag marks the crash site. (Click pics for larger images.)

All the redesign did was add some trees to the west of the original crescent:


Aside from the re-coloring of the site-plan image, the only actual change in the design is the additional arc of trees to the rear of a person facing into the original crescent.

The Park Service promised Congressman Tancredo in 2005 that Islamic iconography would be removed from the memorial. Instead, this iconography has only been very slightly disguised. Every particle of the original Crescent of Embrace design remains completely intact in the redesign.

The giant crescent points to Mecca
In September 2005, a half dozen different bloggers verified that a person facing directly into the original Crescent of Embrace would be facing almost exactly at Mecca. That makes the crescent a mihrab, the central feature around which every mosque is built.

Face into the crescent to face Mecca:


Left: mihrab from the Great Mosque in Cordoba Spain. Right: Crescent of Embrace also faces Mecca. The green circle is from the Mecca-direction calculator at Islam.com. When it is placed over the original Crescent of Embrace site plan, the Mecca-direction line (the "qibla") almost exactly bisects the crescent.

You can plant as many trees around a mosque as you want and it will still be a mosque. But this isn't just the world's largest mosque. The planned memorial is also full of terrorist memorializing features.

Please hear my voice along with those of Congressman Tancredo and Tom Burnett Sr., who is refusing to allow Tom Jr.'s name to be used in the crescent design. The memorial to Flight 93 should not be a terrorist memorial mosque.

Sincerely


(Add your name accordingly)

Secretary Kempthorne's phone number is 202-208-7351

Snail-mail:

Hon. Dirk Kempthorne, Secretary of Interior
Office of the Secretary
Rm. 6156, ms7229-MIB
1849 C St, NW
Washington, DC 20240-0001

The Park Service has a history of keeping the Secretary of the Interior in the dark about the decisions it makes in his name. It is likely that Secretary Dirk Kempthorne has never been told about the many warnings of Islamic symbolism in the planned Flight 93 Memorial. Please help bring Dirk into the loop by pasting the following letter (or one of your own) into an email for him.
