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.

Democracy v Federal Republic...Which Are We?

~Snooper~

This is my take...I am just an old warrior, a grunt...

This post herein is a repost of two pieces I penned many moons ago at my Townhall blog, then the Wordpress blog and, finally, at the Blogspot blog, since merged with A Newt One. I have elected to combine the two pieces into one in preparation of the posting at Digital Journal. I have also taken the liberty, as the originating author to make the appropriate changes and corrections to the pieces in the process of combing the original piece as posted here.

Feel free to correct me, if you are able and/or leave comments...I am all ears...

What is democracy? What is Liberty? We hear all kinds of references to both these days, don't we? The terms get thrown away and I fear that the majority of Americans haven't a clue, really, what either term means. We won't even get into the terms Federal Republic or Democratic Republic and related terminology, at this point. According to the Webster's Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary, democracy has been given the definition as "government by the people; especially: rule of the majority", among a few others. What does majority rule mean and why is that an important aspect of democracy? Is majority rule relevant? If so, then, why? According to the same dictionary previously mentioned, majority rule has been given the definition as, "a political principle providing that a majority usually constituted by 50% plus one of an organized group will have the power to make decisions binding upon the whole." Wow; such a gaggle of words. We can gather from the definitions of Democracy and Majority Rule that the principles derived from them pertain to a tool whereby decisions can be made and applied or enforced.

With that in mind, is Democracy a good thing or a bad thing? Consider this; you like strawberry milkshakes but the majority has voted and taken the decision as to whether you should like strawberry milkshakes under consideration. The majority votes that it will be vanilla milkshakes and the strawberry milkshakes will no longer be available. The same process can be applied to every aspect of your life. Is this good or is it bad? For you, the strawberry milkshake drinker, it is bad. You are in the minority so you lose that particular choice. The decision process has been removed from you. For the majority, there is no more issue. Vanilla milkshakes it is. That "sounds" a little like tyranny, doesn't it? Does this mean that Democracy is a form of tyranny?

Yes, it is. However, this form of tyranny is an elected type of tyranny. What then, is tyranny? It is back to the dictionary for a definition, "oppressive power exerted by government." Really? We just had an election and the majority voted for vanilla milkshakes. The majority rules in a Democratic society so why is this considered to be tyrannical? This issue isn't as simple as some would lead us to believe.

The Father of our Constitution, James Madison had this to say about a pure Democracy, "there is nothing to check the inducement to sacrifice the weaker party or the obnoxious individual." Truer words have rarely been spoken. So, then, we may gather that a Democracy, in its purest form can lead to tyranny. So, is Democracy good then? Ask John Adams. He had this gem to express, "Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There was never a democracy yet that did not commit suicide."

Other wise men have made observations about democracy and several have compared democracy to a republic and have determined that the differences between the two are similar to the differences between chaos and order...Anarchy to be more precise. Isn't that a wondrous commentary to ponder? People of the world and world leaders prattle on about Democracy and all they want is tyranny, chaos and order? This can sound rather contradictory can it not? Why would other peoples want this?

You see, our Founding Fathers were really smart men. They had lived through various forms of government and watched many come and go. They knew the pitfalls and the snares and the traps. Unfortunately, our modern leaders have lost their way.

Our Founding Fathers had every intention on protecting the people of the new Nation of America. They did not want a tyrannical form of government. They did not want a king. They did not want a dictator. They intended to create a republican form of government, not to be confused with a republican political party. We will need to define this form of government so, it is back to the dictionary: "a government in which supreme power resides in a body of citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by elected officers and representatives responsible to them and governing according to law." This is a far cry from Democracy is it not?

Personally, I don't know why our politicians in this country as well as others make a big deal over Democracy. It is certainly superior to Socialism or Communism but we will discuss those issues another day. Would it not be better to spread our Founding Fathers' dream and experiment? Yes it would. However, we would have to return to it in order to proclaim it and spread the good news around.

That brings us to Liberty. What is Liberty? It is the "freedom to do as one pleases (anarchy) and quality or state of being free and free from arbitrary or despotic control." Our form of government as envisioned by our Founding Fathers was a Federal Republic, ruling over the "various states" and ensuring continuity and protection from foreign and domestic enemies.

It was a combination of Democracy, Tyranny, Republican, Anarchy and Liberty. Combine them all into one form and you achieve a Federal Republic where the PEOPLE govern and the politicians carry out the demands of the PEOPLE, not the other way around. The people are free to CHANGE the government at will (remember that). Combining these five elements and deriving law and order, a healthy society will emerge.

Today, in America, the politicians have become the governing body and "We The People" are their serfs. We have become a form of government our Founding Fathers feared the most. The people are no longer the ruling body.

It is time to Take Our Country Back.

I have read on the blogs at Townhall and elsewhere, where several terminologies are either being exaggerated, abused and/or misrepresented.

I have been hearing we are a "Democratic Republic". I have been hearing that we are a "Democracy". I have been hearing that we are a "Republic". It all started when an author posted the "Atheist Democracy" article. That was a good article, by the way.

With that being said, I will post here a bit of data that will explain in not so much boring detail, the gist of what a Federal Republic is, in laymens' terms.

The United States was founded as a Federal Republic. This means that is was to be a representative form of government. Many people do not know what this entails.

There are three forms of "representation".

First, there is the Trustee form. This is where the elected official, theoretically, listens to the constituents and is trusted to use their best judgments to make decisions for or, in the stead of. (not a good plan)

Second, there is the Delegate representative who votes the way their constituents would want them to vote, whether or not the representative agrees with the majority of the constituents. (majority rule)

Third, there is the Politico representative which, flip-flops between the Delegate and Trustee forms of representation, depending on the issue(s). (not a good plan)

It is the Delegate form the Framers had intended and it worked that way up until FDR. From FDR and on, our representation went to hell in a hand basket and hasn't recovered yet. This form is what creates accountability in politics and we have not had much of that in decades, have we? Are we currently being represented by Delegates? In my estimation, most certainly not.

The Trustee form is what lazy and uninterested sheeple choose to live under and their "rights" can be stripped away because the Elected One "hears" them but tends to "ignore" them, thereby deciding as the Trustee so deems what is in the best interest of his constituents regardless of how the majority may or may not feel. Tyranny is the result. Trustee representation invites a degree of indecision on the part of the people and are seemingly incapable of correcting any wrongs the trustee may have accomplished. The Trustee form of representation has a tendency to become untrustworthy.

The Politico form is a mish-mash form of socialized "keep-them-in-the-dark and feed them fish eyes" representation. There is ZERO accountability. The Politico does as he or she pleases with no threats of retaliation for not representing his or her people.

The Federal Republic was making a come back during the Reagan and Bush years but was reverted back to the socialistic ways of FDR when Clinton gained control of the American Helm.

This MUST be reversed before it is too late. Should a Leftinistra (a member of the socialist liberal) gain the Throne of American politics, we will be very close to another American Civil War. I make this statement because our country has not been this split since 1861. And, look what that bred.

Amazing: Democrats Can't Tell Which Way The Wind Is Blowing

~Snooper~

While the Democrat Leadership is reinventing a device to detect wind direction, the Conservative Tsunami will sweep them into the Abyss of Obscurity. The sooner the better. Has someone cloned Stupid while no one was looking?

The headline: US presidential candidates struggle to gauge public mood on Iraq

Judas Priest. Are they really that thick in the skull, or what?
Now that violence in Iraq is abating and other issues are consuming more of the presidential debates, political activists are wondering if the war will prove to be the defining issue that Democrats have long assumed. [...]
Read the above as follows; The political activists, namely, the anti-Americanist groups such as the communist advocates of the Che Gueverra proponents of the non A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition, Code Pepto Dismal, the World Can't Wait and other similar drivel and hate filled groups, are no longer listened to because they are insignificant and useless to the Democratic Party Leaders now that we are winning the war. [...]


Read the rest of the article and you will witness for yourself how irrelevant the moonbats in the passe Fruit Loop Brigades are.

The defining tenet in the article is as follows...please follow closely:
[...] "George Bush is on the ballot in 2008," Emanuel said. [...]
Is that rich or what? Therein is the downfall of the campaigns amongst the Leftinistra candidates of Presidential Aspirants. Their moonbat base will think that GWB is running again. So sad to be that dumb.

The Trumped Up Charges Against Rumsfeld Dismissed

~Snooper~ (catch the wave at memeorandum)

Logic and jurisprudence won the day, again. The report came over the wires via Reuters some time ago and it is sure to tweak the teets of the Leftinistra the globe over. Wishful thinking and rhetoric were tossed out of court, rightly and justly so. Especially since it was a foreign court. Since when is the United States under the jurisdiction of foreign courts, while we are prosecuting a war? Are these people that brought the suit, without merit, daft?

As a friend of mine, Hawk, stated:
[...] What kind of a world do we live in where our national leaders can't conduct operations during a war without some whackjob organization taking it upon themselves to sue them for it? [...]
Exactly so. One World Socialist morons need not apply.


First off, since when do non US citizens qualify for United States Constitutional Rights? I would like to see the chapter and verse for that one. As for the Geneva Convention(s), I would like to see chapter and verse where terrorists are afforded protections under the Conventions. Terrorists are scum of the earth. They are murderous trash. They are Jihadi wastes of human flesh that murder in the name of their godless moors.

There are some terrorists whining at Club Gitmo about their religious rights being trounced. In my opinion, they have no rights. They get three squares a day, they get free health care, they get all their murderous teachings of the Koran so they can learn to hate and learn to kill all infidels, they have bathing facilities...hell they have it better off at club Gitmo than they did sleeping with their damn goats in some friggin' cave someplace.

Screw 'em. And while we are at it, screw the idiots that think International law trumps the sovereignty of the United States.

Hillary: The Sickness of The Beguiled

~Snooper~

The Budding Leninist, Czarina, the Modern American Progressive, is a Clear and Present Danger to the very survival of Traditional America. Traditional America is under attack by these budding Leninists, calling themselves "Progressives". If one carefully examines the mantra of said same, one will see that which they prattle and yammer upon is Socialism with a smattering of Communism, disguised as "progressive".

What are these "progressives" progressing towards? No one on "their" side of the aisle, whichever that side might be, has explained their talking dulls satisfactorily, have they? Does anyone even know? I have performed a scientific study and I do believe that our team has discovered the ailment causing the sickness that "progressivism" is. It is kind of scary and without further ado, we provide a CT Scan of a "progressive' we found wondering aimlessly around SE Texas, incoherent, inaudible and in dire need of a rubber room.


And there you have it. We call it Hillaroncasinseptocacka. Like the Sci Fi Borg technology, the human brain was injected with this nanoprobes and this victim of this tragic attack fought the assimilation to their ultimate peril. It deteriorated the thought process to the point that the victim actually drowned in its own drivel. The recorded dying words were, "Bush did it".

The nanoprobes disintegrated immediately following death.

In other news, we find that the Hillaryscare Campaign is in a tizzy over their stature in Iowa. It seems as though that damn Obama character is actually pulling ahead.

Naturally, her apparent falling from grace could be a direct result of the criminal activity she has conveniently side-stepped and her money-bag and emotional standard bearers are charlatans.

Some are saying that her woes are catching up with her now that Czarina is making a play to The Big House...woops...The White House.

As the Czarina expresses her feigned caring drivel towards our troops, we are reminded how our troops think of her. As for her sexual inclinations, I really don't care but the rumor is still out there and I am with Don...it is just a rumor at this point and it really should be left well enough alone.

With her woes in Iowa making the road ahead indeed troublesome, her paperwork is being held hostage someplace and is due to be released but the delay-game is "Rather" irksome. I would rather see these documents that are sure to pin-point her qualifications to be CIC...without them, what is her justification?

The Dema Sutra positions of the Budding Leninist, as intriguing and hard to track and keep up with are "Rather" typical of a liar, charlatan and someone with something to hide, I find her inability to maintain eye contact all too revealing.

Her ever "evolving" and "progressive" (whatever that means) pseudonyms for whatever position she takes with whatever the prevailing winds are at the time, is always so evasive and unclear to the minds of the intellectually sound. With the continuing scandals surfacing, I find it interesting that she even shows herself in the public eye. The Clinton machine pathway is littered with the bodies of those that know the Real Deal.

What should serve as an adequate wake-up call to the American People is being shunted to ground and her supporters include terrorists and their moppets.

Carl Rove says she can be beat but the road to defeat for the Czarina would be an easier path if her drones would wake-up to smell the coffee and to call into question her patriotism or better yet, ask the question as to what she is actually patriotic towards.

Stupidity At The KOSmonoffs Cannot Go Unanswered

~Snooper~

Mission Accomplished. Here we go with this totally and completely retarded and stupid rhetoric...again.

The moonbats at the Daily Stupid place are pretty much the singularly most retarded of them all. No wonder their numbers are dwindling. Here is an example of this pathetic moonbat-bot's stupidity:
Baghdad today, day 1675 since mission accomplished was declared in Iraq: [...]
The rest of the piece is equally inane. Let us remind everyone what the statement of "Mission Accomplished" was directed towards at the time it was uttered. This particular idiot moonbat would be well advised to actually read the text of the "Mission Accomplished" speech BEFORE it repeats the ignorant stupidity of ITS handlers. Only a fool, after reading the text, doesn't know what the message was/is.

Where in this speech does the president say the war is over?
Where? The Leftinistra. Morons that cannot read, hear, understand, comprehend. So much for their holier than thou crap.

To the idiot troll jerk at the Daily KOSmonff, mcjoan...can you not read or think for yourself?

Where Has Reid Got With Dumb-Dumb?

~Snooper~

As many of us have now been saying for a very long time, one of these days, the once Main Stream Media is going to stop ignoring good news. This is such the case with the Times of London. More and more European countries and news outlets are seeing the light. And, it is about time.
[...] When it comes to foreign policy the next US president has to remember that America is most effective when the world's only policeman is seen as strong, as in the immediate aftermath of the Iraq invasion. Libya disarmed. The Khan nuclear exchange programme was exposed. Syria withdrew from Lebanon. Problems multiplied when America looked unwilling to commit necessary troops to finish the first battles of the War on Terror. A weak America, tied down by donothing multilateralists, is the last thing our dangerous world needs.

AMEN!!

Catch this wave of chatter at memeorandum.

Check out why the Leftinistra are so totally useless here at The Astute Bloggers.

As for Reid...well, he is just worthless on top of being useless and dumb-dumb. Sometimes, when I am really tired, I think Murtha is smarter than Reid.

The Defeatocramps Just Disgust This DAV

~Snooper~

From Yahoo! News...
AP - The Democrats' flagship proposal on Iraq is aimed at bringing most troops home. Yet if enacted, the law would still allow for tens of thousands of U.S. troops to stay deployed for years to come. [...]
"Flagship" proposal? You mean the sinking into the Abyss of Obscurity "Flagship"?

[...] This reality - readily acknowledged by Democrats who say it's still their best shot at curbing the nearly five-year war - has drawn the ire of anti-war groups and bolstered President Bush's prediction that the United States will most likely wind up maintaining a hefty long-term presence in Iraq, much like in South Korea. [...]
And, Germany, Japan, Kosovo...oh...wait...we aren't allowed to bring up or even to mention Kosovo. Bill Clinton said we would be out of there in a year...what, 8 years ago? Morons.


As we have been saying for seemingly an eternity, this latest quagmire...self-induced...of the Democratic Party Leadership is their last ditch effort to overrun the CONgress and the White House. Their efforts have failed. They tried, once more, to appease their fruit loop fringe anti-Americanist base and it has finally caught up to them. They know it. Their lackies know it. And now, you know it.

We have also said that this is an effort of the DementedRats to lay claim to troops being pulled out of Iraq. This has ALREADY been decided LONG ago as the Surge was building up. I guess the idiots they cater to are just plainly that dumb.

Get over it. We have been in Korea since the early 1950s. We have been in Japan and Europe since the late 1940s. We have been in the Philippines for longer than that. We will be in Iraqistan and Afghanistan for even longer.

Morons.

On This Day of Thanksgiving...

~Snooper~

Catch the wave at memeorandum...

Let us remember those in Harms Way that are ensuring the security for those of us Stateside. I want to bring to the fore, the good News that has transpired since January 2007. First and foremost, I wish to thank General David Petraeus for his insight, character and tenacity. In a recent article in the WSJ, he spells things out quite clearly and it is all too obvious how oblivious and back-handed the Democratic Party Leadership is. It seems as though they they are setting things up to take credit for actions already in the works. Click the link and read for yourselves. Placing snippets here will not render due justice to the piece. The article is entitled "This Is Not a Light Switch".

As we consider those away that understand what Thanksgiving means in Afghanistan, we can know for a surety that the Good News there is shared by many.

Let us be thankful that the ever vigilant arms of those that know are keeping one step ahead of our enemies.

Let us be forever grateful and thankful that the foreign fighter influx into Iraq has been halved since the Surge that wouldn't or couldn't make a difference has made a major difference and, the flowing gains the Defeatocrats said would never happen has happened...
**Violence in Iraq is down by 50%.
**Civilian casualties in Iraq are down by 60%.
**Baghdad casualties are down by 75%.
**Basra violence is down by 90%.
**Terrorist attacks in Iraq are down by 80%.
**IED attacks down by 55%.
**Average daily attacks down by 42%.
**Foreign insurgent flow into Iraq down by more than 50%
**Suicide bombings down 70% since March
Let us be eternally thankful that our troops are having such a devastating affect on the enemy that the Iraqis in Syria will be transported home by the droves.


As Political Vindication so appropriately states, let us be thankful that our troops are kicking ass.

We should be thankful for men like Jules Crittenden, Michael Yon, and organizations like IBD Editorials. They, among others, bring us unabashed and verifiable data...the Good News that the Lame Stream and Defeatocrats cringe upon when heard.

I am thankful for men like Brig. Gen. James C Boozer, Jr.

We should all be grateful for Good News that the Leftinistra abhor...it exposes their agends(s). We should be thankful that men such on Don Surber keeps the ball rolling on tracking the polls that shows the Leftinistra for what they are...anti-Americanists. Don says the Leftinistra are Galluping into obscurity.

We should be thankful for bloggers such as The Van Der Galiën Gazette that bring us a different slant from a different land. Redstate, Chicago's Ray, Macsmind, Gateway Pundit, Wake Up America, Amy Proctor the Army Wife, all bring us their perspectives with their individualized conclusions, unlike the lock-step "sillitudes" we find amongst the Leftinistra.

The Captain's Quarters brings us reasoned and factual presentations. Our troops leave no stone unturned to root out the snakes from under their rocks. We see that the War Is Lost In Iraq mantra from OBL and our troops are beating down the enemy in Afghanistan., the forgotten war.

We should be thankful that because General Petraeus was right, he has been selected to bring up the new Leadership in the United States Army. We should be thankful that bloggers such as The Astute Bloggers remind everyone of the media bias that exists in regards to Victory In Iraq.

The Jawa Report, Blackfive, Q and O, The Weekly Standard, Hot Air, bring us cutting satire and true grit wit to cause folks to pause and dwell upon that which they believe.

We should be thankful that AQ's networks are being dismantled one Jihadi at a time to the degree that they are running from Iraqi and American Forces.

We should be thankful that neither Al Gore of John Kerry are Presidents. We should be thankful that Iraqi Shiites have condemned Iranian violent influences within Iraq. We should be grateful to heroic actions by our Fighting Men and women.

We should be thankful that all of the recent anti-Americanist Hollyweird movies have "udderly" tanked into the sewer from which they were spawned, especially Cuban's Retarded, I mean Redacted.

Yes, we as a nation have so much to be thankful for yet, the Leftinistra would have us believe that this is a day of mourning. It really must suck to be such a pathetic blog of crap as they.

Support The Troops With Move America Forward!

~Snooper~

ATTENTION TO ORDERS!

HEAR YE! HEAR YE!! HEAR YE!!!

Starting Monday, November 26th, Move America Forward will wage a huge, cross country pro-troop holiday tour called "Honoring Heroes at the Holidays Tour."

We'll have pro-troop rallies and events in 40 cities across America for the next three weeks, and at each event we'll collect signed Christmas, Hanukkah and holiday greeting cards that we'll deliver to our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan . We're collecting over 100,000 cards in this effort - and given the current rate the cards have been coming in to our headquarters at Move America Forward we could well exceed that goal.

I have a request to make of you: can you please help us spread the word of this effort and a link to our tour route so patriotic Americans all across the nation can do their part to show their support for our troops who will be serving more than 7,000 miles away from their families, friends and homes during the holidays.


When the "Honoring Our Heroes at the Holidays" national pro-troop tour ends on December 16th (in New York City), Move America Forward will then have a delegation fly to Iraq and hand-deliver the final batch of cards to our troops on Christmas Day.

We want to bring out great crowds to these events and collect huge numbers of Christmas/Hanukkah/Holiday cards for our troops.

PLEASE HELP GET THE WORD OUT!

Complete details can be found online at: Move America Forward

Thanks a bunch,

Ryan Gill - Move America Forward

You can also visit Operation America Rising and send the items requested to them. They will be meeting up with the MAF Caravan in NYC.


OAR is proud to be assisting with two projects this winter. First, in conjunction with the Honoring the Heroes at the Holidays tour of Move America Forward, we are proud to announce Operation Joy to the troops.

Operation America Rising will be collecting Holiday Cards for our Troops stationed overseas. We welcome you to be a part of this noble cause.

Get your local schools, churches, businesses, and civic organizations involved. All you have to do is collect holiday messages of Joy for the Troops and mail them to:

P.O. Box 2345
Franklin, NC 28744.

We will then deliver the cards to Move America Forward's "Honoring Heroes at the Holidays Tour!"

This will be a nationwide tour starting November 26th and ending on December 16th. OAR will deliver the messages of Joy on Wednesday December 12, 2007. It is time to send holiday joy and praise to the men and women that defend our freedom. If you would like more detailed information email me.

Happy Thanksgiving Day Everyone...UPDATE

~Snooper~

UPDATES are below...

I have received the following in my email and thought it blog worthy...enjoy.

Hi everyone. I just wanted to tell each of you how great there are those who care about our founding fathers and remember our start as a colony. All of you are part of what I'm thankful for this coming Thanksgiving Day and although I don't write here much, I do remember each of you. So, keep in mind as you're eating tomorrow, that the most important thing to be thankful for is God creating this nation and all our moral leaders out there who care about the moral compass of our nation and it's future. They're the ones who really deserve a thanksgiving and praise. As for the others, they need prayer because they're lost. So, I'm most thankful to God for having all of us born as well as our nation.

Thank you from da Penguin. :)

Snooper Gives Thanks To The Democratic Party Leadership

~Snooper~

As I sit in my Death Chair pondering the years past, I cannot help but chuckle to myself, a disdainful chuckle - a chuckle of utter contempt - a chuckle of disgrace - a sorrowful and an ashamed chuckle - as I read posts from across this land and others in foreign lands; reflecting on the absolute Loser Mentality as expressed by the once great Democratic Party. They may or may not realize what they have become.

They have become the Party of Corruption, the Party of Disgrace, the Party of Charlatans, the Party of Double Standards, the Party of Double Talk, the Party of Ignorance, the Party of Liars...The Party of Shame.

In April of 2007, as the "Surge" in Iraq was beginning to build up, a change of direction that the Democratic Party and a slew of others demanded, President Bush said these words, among others:
[...] "No matter how frustrating the fight in Iraq can be, no matter how much we wish this war was over, the security of our country depends directly on the outcome of Iraq," Bush told an audience at East Grand Rapids High School, vowing to keep troops in Iraq until the job is done. [...]
The Democratic Party Leaders wet their pants:

[...] Reid, D-Nev., fired back at Bush, saying "no one wants us to succeed in Iraq more than Democrats."

"We heard the same old story from the president today because his strategy calls for more of the same. It's a failed strategy for our troops in Iraq, it's a failed strategy for our security at home and it's dangerous that the president refuses to recognize the reality on the ground in Iraq," Reid said from the Senate floor. [...]
See what I mean? The Party of Double Speak. They speak with a forked tongue. If they want us to succeed in Iraq, how would that be possible by removing the troops? As it has turned out like the vast majority of Americans knew it would, the "Surge" has been a remarkable success, faster then anyone had anticipated. Have they apologized for trying to crush the morale of the troops as well as the country as a whole? No, they have not, being the cowards that they are.


Read the rest of the referenced article and compare it to the news we have today, and you tell me who has the insight and who does not. You tell me who has the "can do" attitude and ability and who does not.

As we at A Newt One proclaim and will continue to do so, the Party of Defeat, the Democratic Party Leadership, are so heavily invested in defeat for political gain, they cannot bring themselves to admit that they were indeed wrong. We have been saying this for well over three years now and in the light of the evidence of Victory at hand, they still try to hand that victory to our enemies...at any and all costs.

This is not the 1960s or the 1970s anymore and we will not sit idly by as that generation did and let these defeatist fools destroy this country. The defeatists have become irrelevant, insignificant and bothersome; like pesky gnats on a hot summer day - to be swatted and crushed.

The Republican Senate blog has several entries that I find interesting and some that are flat out FUBAR. However, they do have this one dead nuts on track. They have listed the words of the defeatists along with verifiable links and references...something alien to moonbats...where we can all read to bring to the fore that which they once stated, securing their positions on the wrong side of this issue. The entry is in two sections, like a before and after type of thing...pretty craftily done.

This last ditch effort to save their worthless political skins by the political shenanigans of funding the troops is the straw that broke the camels' back. They have signed their own political death warrants. America is waking up. America is rising.

Murtha...A Terminal Case of Beltwayitis

~Snooper~

Murtha. The very epitome of an empirical ignoramus. Where does one begin to reveal the "udder" stupidity of the "man"?

From the socialist blog Think Progress, aka Think Like An Ass: posted 11/17/07
Today marks two years from the day that Rep. John Murtha (D-PA) boldly called for a timetable for redeployment of U.S. forces out of Iraq. "The war in Iraq is not going as advertised. It is a flawed policy wrapped in illusion," Murtha said, adding that his call for withdrawal was motivated by deep concern for the state of the military: [...]
Obviously, the pathetic authors at Think Like An Ass do not pay attention to the FACT that we ARE winning this war, thanks to the "change of direction" orchestrated by General Petraeus. To repeat over an over the erroneous diatribes from a blithering idiot such as Murtha is all too telling.


Another socialist blog, Snakes and Snails also whines about "talking bad about" the fraud, liar Murtha. They have a link up where Rep Schmidt trounces the troll Murtha.

As it has been shown in recent time, Murtha politicized the Haditha Incident for his own political gain and it has backfired in a large way. Right Voices brings us a story where the Toad Troll Murtha is trying to not face the music of his trollish ways.
Lawyers for Rep. John P. Murtha will appeal a recent ruling advancing a defamation lawsuit brought against the Pennsylvania Democrat by a U.S. Marine under investigation for killing Iraqi civilians. Justice Department lawyers representing Murtha on Nov. 16 filed notice that they planned to appeal a federal district court judge's Sept. 28 ruling allowing the lawsuit to proceed and ordering Murtha to give sworn testimony in the case.

If the court determines Murtha indeed was acting in his official capacity, the U.S. government could be substituted as the defendant - a move that would effectively neuter the case because the federal government cannot be sued for libel.

But Wuterich's lawyer, Mark S. Zaid, said Monday that the deposition now likely will be delayed, pending a determination from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. The court will have to determine whether it has the jurisdiction to hear Murtha's appeal at this stage or if it should wait until a lower court determines the fate of Wuterich's lawsuit.
Wow. Like Allahpundit says:

if that defense flies, then Dollar Bill Jefferson really was just keeping his cash cool.
From Macsmind:

This ass-wipe is beyond reprehensible, he's calling the Pentagon despicable because he and other democrats are holding our troops hostage over funding the war - since January no less.

Yet the jerk porks his own district and calls our marines liars and murderers and when the evidence comes in that they didn't do what he - beforehand - said they did he doesn't have the balls to apologize.

Get the f-k out of government you worthless piece of cow-shit, you are a hemorrhoid on America's ass.
He cannot apologize. The Leftinistra never do anything wrong...just ask one. And, another thing. Just yesterday, the poor slog was telling some folks that we cannot trust or believe the Pentagon, unless, naturally, one can slander Marines...wasn't Murtha's source for Haditha in the Pentagon?


Just curious.

From Right Voices; Murtha: 'We can't win militarily' Reid & Pelosi Agree
That would be a quote from today. This man needs to be removed from the House!


"Look at all the people that have been displaced, all the [lost] oil production, unemployment, all those type of things," said Rep. John P. Murtha, chairman of Appropriations defense subcommittee. "We can't win militarily."

The Pennsylvania Democrat conceded violence was down dramatically and some normalcy restored on Iraq's streets, but he said U.S. victory remains unattainable as long as Baghdad fails to pass national reconciliation laws.

"To change the political law, it doesn't seem to me you need the military stability," Mr. Murtha told reporters on Capitol Hill.

The dim view of U.S. military progress in Iraq and a resolve to force a pullout have been echoed by the two top Democrats on Capitol Hill - Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California.
All three of their futures depend on failure in Iraq. This is the Worst Congress Ever! Hell, they couldn't even deliver the defeat they promised their liberal base!
Exactly so. This is yet another last ditch ever to cover up the fact that Murtha and his ilk of cowards and political turds have been on the wrong side of this issue for political gain from the get-go.

Polipundit: John Murtha: Babbling Idiot
I just love how the goalposts keep moving for these clowns, House Democrats' point man in the war-funding showdown with the White House today dismissed U.S. military gains in Iraq and vowed to tighten the purse strings until President Bush accepts a pullout plan. [...]
They will be the death of us all. Head over to Hot Air for some choice words about Murtha the Turdtha as well as the ramblings as witnessed in the video therein.


From Fishwrap, we find these choice words from the Moron and Defeatist Murtha...
Even if the "surge" in Iraq is working, says Rep. John P. Murtha, the war is still hopeless. S.A. Miller reports: (check out Drudge)
What a slap in the face of the sacrifices made. This poor excuse for a man really does need to be wrapped in fish. Ace of Spades comments:
Isn't it funny that when the military situation is improving far more than anyone could have anticipated, Murtha's suddenly decided it's entirely irrelevant?
It is a common distraction technique for the benefit of their clueless and moronic anti-Americanists that sniff the very seats the Leftinistra fart upon while they figure out how to backstab the people in the military that they hate.

Better question: If U.S. military success in Iraq is important news, why are the big papers burying the story?
A note of caution: Watch out for a "Tet offensive" in Iraq.
Wow. As in the Tet Offensive, did they not get encouragement from the Jihad Janes and crews in those days? Is it any wonder that the Jihadis favor our own Leftinistra...peas in a pod, as it were?


Catch this video and spread it around at will...



Yes, the Leftinistra Are subversives. Be sure to visit Fishwrap for several videos as Murtha implodes.

Blue Star Chronicles has an excellent commentary...a snippet here:
[...] How despicable is that??? Chairman of the House defense subcommittees for appropriations and he declares that the United States is INCAPABLE OF WINNING A WAR AGAINST A BUNCH OF INSURGENTS!!!!

House Democrats' point man in the war-funding showdown with the White House today dismissed U.S. military gains in Iraq and vowed to tighten the purse strings until President Bush accepts a pullout plan.

So this disgrace to our country says he admits we are winning, but since he's in charge of the purse strings he's going to deny funding for our Soldiers. [...]
More about John Murtha.

Yid with Lid says Murtha is dumb as toast.

The Hot Joints says that apparently Murtha hasn't been able to find any Marines to accuse of murder today. John Murtha, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid, represent a trifecta of stupid.

Wake Up America offers some alternatives to Murtha.

And the political games heat up as pointed out at Hot Air and here.

More good posts on this: All American Blogger, California Conservative, Sword At-the-Ready, Murtha Must Go, Jammie Wearing Fool

Treasonous, subversive, seditious...and no one in authority calls this clown on his crap.

From Sister Toldjah:

Before Congress' #1 Defeatocrat Rep. Murtha made a statement in which he tried to spin the House's defeatist war funding plan earlier today, he started off with the following "greeting" of sorts:

This week, around our Thanksgiving tables, there will be two families: One who say they support the troops, and they do, but they have sacrificed very little. They haven't had their taxes raised, they haven't been drafted, and they don't really participate in the war. The other are military families who have husbands and wives, sons and daughters, mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters in the war theater. It's them who shoulder the burden of the President's Iraq policy. America owes them our thanks in this Thanksgiving weekend.

It's always so classy to take cheap shots at your political opponents during the holidays, isn't it?

What the Defeatists fail to remind their Moonbats of the Fruit Loop Brigades is this...they signed onto the Iraq War Resolution. I wonder if Murtha will redeploy to that elevator again...
