Islam: Religion of peace. 8:65 O Prophet (Muhammad)! Urge the believers to fight. If there are twenty steadfast persons amongst you, they will overcome two hundred, and if there be a hundred steadfast persons they will overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve, because they (the disbelievers) are people who do not understand.

Why Kevin McCullough Dropped Mitt for Fred

Why I dropped Mitt for Fred…

Posted by: Kevin McCullough at 12:13 PM

In the election cycle that has been underway this incredibly early part of 2007, I have had a chance to shake the hands and speak personally with all of the presidential candidates.

I have to say in the early going, and largely due to a few factors – his defense of marriage in Massachusetts, his stunning credentials and record of CEO success, and because of my good friend’s great book “A Mormon in the White House” by Hugh Hewitt – I was leaning strongly Romney.

Here on TownHall, Dean Barnett has challenged all of us to articulate clearly who we are supporting so that we have the most honest debate possible. He said so, and then immediately proclaimed his loyalty to fellow New Englander – Mitt Romney.

Matt Lewis has not fully endorsed John McCain but he has definitely been faithful to keep some of us more anti-McCain cranks honest about the facts of Senator Cranky.

Patrick Ruffini has openly admitted his connection to the Rudy 2008 campaign and in doing so is benefitting TownHall readership by giving us a perspective that would more than likely be absent were he not to do so.

I have never done so in a campaign cycle – certainly never this early – but I am proud to announce that today (really as of mid-day yesterday) I am an eagerly, enthusiastic, anticipatory supporter of Fred Thompson. I have leaned his direction ever since first hearing the possibility but had to tell myself that focusing on the declared candidates was the reality – everything else just speculation.

I believe Thompson will win for a variety of reasons. He understands technology, and the total scope of the blogosphere in a far more superior way to any of the rest of the candidates. But he has also not abandoned the gray hairs – of which there are far more of than ever before for an election cycle in America. He’s gone from last place to tied for first without spending any money – and behind the laid back calm gentile facade is a fierce defender of America.

So I figured – why hide it anymore. I’m a Fred-head. So yes – the Musclehead blog will have a Fred-bias to it – as the Hewitt blog has a Mitt-bias, and as the Medved blog as an Amnesty-bias. The important thing is that we are honest about the views from which we are coming from and allow you the TownHall reader to examine our rationale for itself.

So what pushed me over the edge? Well, Fred has had some bang-up speeches and television appearances. He’s written a weekly column for us here on TownHall bringing his common sense directly to us, and in doing so he’s eliminated a lot of the filters by which messages can usually get mangled. He also speaks so that everybody in the room can understand – and funny enough according to the poll numbers – they do. I do look forward to seeing Fred in the debates and when he arrives, look for him to shoo away the attacks of the others with the ease that he puffed cigar smoke into the face of Michael Moore.

But if you really have to know what pushed me from Mitt to Fred: National Right To Life 100% rating… and the rest of what he says in this video to the NRLC that met in Washington last night.

The video is here and on my VODPOD

Plain speak on life, culture, and terror… He is unequivocal – and none of the others are.

HOW REFRESHING!

The Leftinistra WILL not be like this because they CANNOT!

Pelosi Believes In Murder


This yet another card of a character that has not graduated from the school of the sane.

From One News Now:

Republican presidential candidate Sam Brownback is denouncing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for implying that God supports embryo-destructive research.

House Democrats recently celebrated passage of a bill that would expand federal funding of embryonic stem-cell research (ESCR). On the House floor, Speaker Pelosi (D-California) described research on embryonic stem cells as “a gift from God” and “biblical in its power to cure.”

WHAT?

“You destroy life to get these embryonic stem cells,” the presidential hopeful notes. “It’s like she avoids that portion of the discussion; and on top of that, we’ve just had even another breakthrough where they’ve been able to reprogram skin cells to act like embryonic stem cells …. we don’t have to destroy human life.”

Exactly so, Sir!

Pelosi has called on President Bush to reconsider his plan to veto the measure, saying that “with his cruel veto pen” last year, the president “dashed the hopes of many for the healing potential of stem-cell research.”

Pelosi is a moron. Pelosi is a murderer. Perhaps she should be euthanized?

From a commenter at the site:

Nancy Pelosi continually demonstrates that she has a huge mouth and an infinitesimal brain. She is constantly backing out-of-date ideas and erroneous concepts that tear at the very fabric of American life. Sam Brownback readily recognized, as did many of us, the false concepts that Pelosi espoused. Stem-cell research has accomplished much – but not thru the use of embryos! So why is she pushing ESCR? To waste more taxpayer money on the wealthy big PHARMA!

What gives Speaker Pelosi the right to use our tax money to visit other nations and governments? That’s what we have a State Dept. for! “Speaker of the House” does not mean “I speak for the nation” but Pelosi thinks she has free rein.

So, What’s the Deal?


Has there been some secret deal made someplace? My kids act this way from time to time.

From One News Now:

An immigration reform group says President Bush continues to refuse to listen to the American people. The organization is questioning why the president remains determined to pass what it considers a massive amnesty bill, despite the fact that it has already been soundly rejected by the American public.

We have all missed something here.

Trent Lott the Bonehead


He is another one that doesn’t get it. As I have posted previously here, Trent Lott needs a refresher class on what the United States Constitution says about how government is to serve “We The People” and NOT the other way around. He was whining the other day at The People’s House as were several others how some of us rallied together to defeat the non-amnesty amnesty for ILLEGAL immigration bill.

From the NYSlimes:

Comments by Republican senators on Thursday suggested that they were feeling the heat from conservative critics of the bill, who object to provisions offering legal status. The Republican whip, Trent Lott of Mississippi, who supports the bill, said: “Talk radio is running America. We have to deal with that problem.”

There are several phrases I would love to place here but I would not want my family to know how low I can go with my vocabulary…small children may run across this one day and it just would not be appropriate. Suffice it to say that Lott can kiss my ass. Who in the hell does he think he is? Some moron that has no intention of bowing to the will of the MAJORITY of Americans? Moron.

Miss Beth, a contributing author to this blog, and maintains her own blog here, and is eventually and apparently migrating to here, sent me a link to a blog that I have become very fond of in a very short period of time. The site has some very “interesting” takes on several subjects.

On Lott’s oratory exposing his utter contempt for the American People, the owner of the blog afore mentioned has a special post:

 

“Talk radio is running America. We have to deal with that problem.”

– Trent Lott (R-Mexico)

 

There! Dealt With!!

 

Short, sweet and to the point. The American People do NOT want this non-amnesty amnesty travesty.

I have this same post over at my other blog at Townhall. I haven’t closed down the comments area like I had planned and I may not. Especially since I get comments such as the one I am going to transplant in a moment. It is an all-telling comment and is indicative of the backlash Lott and others are experiencing…and they don’t like it. Too bloody bad.

So here is the comment from Take Our Country Back:

The Leftists C.N.N. STILL Doesn’t Get It


Go figure. The Communist News Network has a propensity to prove itself inept in every possible and conceivable manner. Roughly 12 hours ago, some meat whistle in the CNN Election Center 2008 wrote a piece and is being touted as self-intellectual. The article has the usual “see we told you so” bullshit overtones. It has some good points within the article due to the fact that it quoted true conservatives.

This particular entry, the very last one, I call questionable. Knowing how The Captain’s Quarters is and knowing what it represents, I highly doubt the inference CNN emotes is true to form of the Captain’s Quarters.

 

Said Morrissey: “I think that they are going to continue to support him on the war on terror. As for the rest of it, they are looking for ways to reshape the party agenda going into the next election. That’s a nice way of saying they are going to consider him irrelevant.”

No, we don’t consider GWB a lame duck. We ARE disappointed in the Amnesty For Illegal Aliens Campaign he so adamantly espouses. We ARE disgruntled that the southern borders are not secure. We ARE angry that the Border Patrol, when performing their duties, go to jail for performing those duties.

The article I am ripping into here is entitled “Conservative bloggers in full revolt over immigration”. Now…see what I mean about the bullshit overtones? How wrong can CNN be on a constant basis? That which we are in “full revolt” over is the AMNESTY for ILLEGAL immigrants. CNN – get it right. You are acting like the incompetent Senator Reid.

 

Different conservative blogs have different pet issues — government transparency, federal judges, Fred Thompson, to name a few.

 

But no issue in recent memory has united conservative bloggers like the debate over immigration. Their frustration has culminated in a full-scale revolt against the Bush administration and a Senate bill that activists say does little to solve the country’s border security problems.

Again…it is ILLEGAL immigration. And yes, we all have our pet issues and one of mine is the Leftinistra Communist News Network that couldn’t get a story straight if a Jihadist was cutting their heads off.

 

President Bush’s pledge to support $4.4 billion in additional border security funds has breathed new life into the bill, but the drumbeat against the legislation shows no signs of quieting. (Watch how senators revived the immigration bill Video)

And where in the hell is this money coming from? Why, it will be collected from all those ILLEGAL aliens coming forward and “paying their fines”. WTF? LSD. Has to be. Somebody slipped LSD into the beverage dispensers in the White House and in the Halls of CONgress. That is the only viable explanation I can come up with. My friend Boaz has a different explanation and he may be correct…something about bugs.

It’s increasingly clear from Web postings and interviews with top conservative bloggers that the immigration bill has done serious damage to the president’s credibility among the conservative netroots, the grassroots bloggers on the Web.

Erick Erickson, managing editor of the popular conservative blog RedState.comexternal link, says he receives between 800 and 900 e-mails a day from readers, most of whom are “enraged” by the White House’s immigration efforts.

“Of all the issues the president has picked to make his hill to die on, he has picked the one that has divided his base,” said Erickson, who lives in Macon, Georgia. “I am shocked by the anger and outrage out there … You’ve got war against the president within the Republican party.”

When details of an immigration compromise were announced this spring, conservative bloggers were immediately incensed. Michelle Malkinexternal link labeled it “a White House betrayal.”

Another popular blogger, Hugh Hewittexternal link, called the bill a “fiasco” and wrote: “this push for this bill is a disaster, Mr. President.”

OK. CNN gets a pass on that part. I beg to differ on a particular connotation but it is so minuscule it isn’t worth the effort.

Conservative bloggers make various arguments against the bill. Some say the bill grants amnesty to illegal immigrants who have already broken the law. Others say normalizing millions of new workers would depress wages and harm American workers.

Most conservative bloggers see border enforcement as the priority, an issue they say the president can enforce on his own without having to push a bill through Congress.

According to several top conservative bloggers, Bush simply has a credibility problem when it comes to border security.

OK. Here is where we part company with CNN. What is “The Why”? Glad you asked. It has something to do with American-Mexican relations and the United States having to ask Mexico if it is OK to protect our southern border. WTF is that all about? Who gives a rat’s ass what Mexico thinks? How do they address their illegal immigration problems? Morons. It also has something to do with the Compassionate Conservative part of GWB but no one has been able to tell me just what in the hell one of those is.

“The administration has not done anything to fix the border or the visa program,” said Ed Morrissey, the Minnesota-based founder of the blog Captain’s Quartersexternal link. “It’s a huge gap in national security. It’s been six years past 9/11 and the administration has done nothing to fix either one.”

Many bloggers said they are disappointed the president has pushed so hard for the immigration bill while letting the war and other issues conservatives care about fall by the wayside.

“The White House will go out and zealously promote Harriet Miers [the former White House counsel who Bush unsuccessfully nominated for the Supreme Court], defend [Attorney General] Alberto Gonzales, promote this bill, but will not take a firm stand on the war,” said Erickson. “I know people who are boiling with rage that the president has been beating up his own side over this bill but won’t take the bully pulpit to beat up Democrats over the war.”

BINGO. But the “BINGO” has been missed by CNN, as usual. CNN has “beat up” GWB about the GWOT and so have the Democrats. GWB had some makings of a “beat up the Democrats” over their bullshit about stabbing our troops in the back but it dwindled away. GWB should be now like he was right after 911, standing on that pile of rubble with the bullhorn in his hands. THAT is the GWB I voted for and NOT the illegal immigrant amnesty program.

Bush did little to help his relationship with bloggers on May 29, when he told a crowd in Glynco, Georgia, that critics of the immigration bill “don’t want to do what’s right for America.”

Kathryn Jean Lopez at the National Review asked, “Is the White House just not paying attention?”

The blog Ace of Spades HQexternal link called Bush “incompetent” and “embarrassingly dimwitted” and urged him to retire.

LOL! I remember that! Anger will do that to folks. LOL!! I was “Rather” incensed as well and so stated that it was proof positive that the lifers in DC no longer represent “We The People”. They represent “We The Special Interest Groups” or “We The Anybody But We The People” groups. I still feel that way. Reviving the AMNESTY bill is more proof of that. The Democrats DESPERATELY want citizenship fir the ILLEGAL immigrants for the voter pool.

 

That guilt-trip tactic of GWB didn’t work. I have a message for GWB. If and when Harry Reid gives YOU kudos for this bill, it is time to step back and ponder that.

Blogs and anti-immigration organizations used the Web to tap into the growing discontent over the immigration bill, using the Internet to organize phone and fax campaigns to urge senators to vote against the bill. It was a plugged-in show of force that would have been beyond comprehension a decade ago.

“The support for this issue has always been there, but the Internet is the platform the issue has needed to become a force in American politics,” said David All, a Republican online strategist based in Washington.

DUH!

When the bill was stymied by a procedural vote on June 7, the blogs claimed victory. A straw poll of conservative bloggers conducted by the Web site Right Wing News showed that 96 percent of bloggers surveyed were “pleased that the Senate immigration bill did not pass.”

 

Now that the bill is back for a second round in the Senate, Bush could have a difficult time making new friends online beyond a relative handful of the bill’s supporters.

 

“It will be very difficult for him to recover with conservative bloggers,” said Robert Bluey, director of the Center for Media & Public Policy at the Heritage Foundation. “When Bush is on to his next issue, I’m not sure if bloggers are going to be there to back him up.”

Which begs the question — is Bush a lame duck among bloggers?

On ILLEGAL immigration? You betcha! On the GWOT…we are behind that one.

This Is How I REALLY Feel About Reid


And this is how others feel:

Spree’s blog:

Bagdad Reid offers himself up as a punching bag by opening his big mouth time and again and showing the American people that we, the conservatives are right when we say:

#1. Democrats cannot be trusted on National Security.
#2. Democrats “claims” to support the troops are not followed up with their words and actions.

Democrats do not take Lieberman to task because Lieberman is RIGHT.

It is also nice to see a liberal website point out how weak Harry “Baghdad” Reid really is.
