LiveLeak.com - Whoopi Calls On Sharpton To Apologize To Duke Players

Look out Whoopi, your sidin' with the enemy!

I have to give credit where credit is due. It's so refreshing to hear what Whoopi Goldberg had to say about Al Sharpton and his comments about the Duke Lacross team.

She needs to be very careful, though. Like Dennis Miller, Ron Silver and me, once you cross the line, no matter what the reason, you ARE the enemy. I would be very surprised to hear her keep this level headed fact based commentary up for much longer. The reactionary kooks on the left are ready to attack.

Reid Urges Public To Complain To Clear Channel On Limbaugh Comments, By John Bresnahan - CBS News

Reid and 41 other Democrats continue to dive enthusiastically into foolishness.

They've had more than a week to get the facts straight and continue to enthusiastically dive deeply into stupidity by continuing to put forth a false argument about Limbaugh's attack on fake troops. As we all (except the Dems) know by now, Limbaugh attacked a soldier who was anti-war who wasn't a soldier at all. In fact he said he was in Iraq, when he was not, he claimed to be a Ranger when he was not and didn't even finish boot camp. He was dishonorably discharged after 44 days! How dare Rush attack that brave soldier! Ha!

The Democratic leaders continue to dig a hole they'll not be able to get out of. I believe it's the last gasp, "death throws" reaction to their entirely correct self assessment that they are politically in big trouble. They made the mistake that they could do the '60's thing and impune America at every turn. Fight the war, demonize the military and beat the Republicans. Unfortunately for the Dems this is not the '60's, and many of us who grew up at that time, and witnessed the incredible hypocrisy and political and cultural destruction are not allowing it to happen again. The Democratic leadership "misunderestimated" the silent majority who are not so silent anymore, and implemented a politically suicidal "strategery". I love it!

They no longer control science reports. Global warming is slowly, but increasingly being effectively questioned. They no longer control the media. Limbaugh is himself an example of that, as well as Fox News, Rathergate and about 10 gazillion Bloggers out there. They don't control even their own office holders, witness the City Council and Mayor of Atlantic City. The City Council has nearly1/3 of it's members in prison or awaiting sentencing. The Mayor has not been heard of since last Wednesday, when he was confronted with the falsification of his military service records. What a phony soldier!

Keep at it guys. Your defense of our enemies. Your attacking of honorable Americans, your lying posturing and manipulation of your offices is the most effective Republican campaign support we could possibly hope for.

Dissection of the Democrat Smear

Before you make up your mind - The facts of Dems fact-free smear of Limbaugh

It's incredible to me that the Dems use a story about a soldier who lied about his Army service to promote his anti-war opinions, as fodder against Limbaugh. The soldier lied, the Dems lied about what Limbaugh said, and the story that gets legs, is Limbaugh's comments about the lying former soldier. It's just amazing. So much so that it's difficult to comment on. If it didn't expose such outrageous dishonesty that is s0 seriously politically and culturally damaging, it would be funny.

As a former Democrat I have believed that my disagreements with that party's leadership are honest political and policy differences. I believed that these people aren't bad, they're not dishonest, they simply disagree. But I have since come to learn from their behavior that the Democratic leadership is dishonest. They are bad. They do put forth points that they know are false to forward political arguments. It's why I am no longer a Democrat.

I hope they keep it up. It invigorates the Conservatives. It makes the Dems look dishonest, desperate and foolish. The charges never stand because they no longer have a monopoly over the media, and the truth eventually gets out. God bless the new media!

Townhall.com::Six inconvenient truths about the U.S. and slavery::By Michael Medved

An Incredibly Unpopular, Refreshingly Reasoned Analysis of Slavery in America

Michael Medved does his usual level headed, historically accurate analysis of slavery in America. Unfortunately for Michael, he';s become the latest conservative racist kook. At least according to that rational, reasoned intelectual, Kieth Olberman of MSNBC.

MSNBC's Keith Olberman took Michael's analysis completely out of context and called it "A defense of slavery". It makes me wonder if he even read the article. Michael won Olberman's "Worst Person in the World" award. I would take that as a compliment actually. You can tell a lot about a person by his friends AND his enemies. Counting Olberman as an enemy says more good about Medved than almost any other honor he has won.

Another example of hysterical demonizing of those they disagree with by the main stream media. Keith, what do I have to do to win your award? Please, I deserve it!

A Tax Credit For Every Problem - Forbes.com

Taxes IS the Problem

Those hoping for our votes continue to try to buy them by giving our money back to us. It's a silly game, but apparently most Americans fall for it. Frederick Bastiat called it "legal plunder".

It goes like this:
Democrat: Vote for me! I'll give you some free money, even though you don't pay taxes. I won't give it to anyone else because I care so much for you.

Republican: Vote for me, I'll give you some of your money back in a way that's fair. But only if you are paying us your money in the first place.

Both are despicable; trying to buy votes with our own money, but it seems to me the Repubulican plan is a little more honest. Maybe that's why so many voters have a problem with them. They play the game a little more transparently.

Murtha may be forced to eat his words...

Federal judge orders Murtha to testify in Haditha defamation case - The Crypt's Blog - Politico.com

We all remember Murtha calling Marines accused of killing innocents in Haditha (that have since been found innocent themselves) war criminals and cold blooded murderers in a press conference some time ago. In this article analyzing the liable case against Murtha brought by one of those Marines, the author explains quite well why Murtha cannot be found guilty of liable in this case. Primarily it relates to having nearly complete immunity when speaking as a member of the Senate in performance of his duties. But just as Murtha may not liable or defame me as a computer consultant in a press conference , unless I am being debated in Senate or in reference to particular legislation in which I am involved, Murtha may not defame a Marine unless that case is before the Senate. It was not. Otherwise Senators may liable and defame anyone under any circumstances simply because it was done as the part of an official press conference or communique, as long as that press release or conference were done as part of his official duty and not a citizen. Regardless of the context or pertinence to the Senators duties. Defamation by Senator would then itself become part of the Senators official duties. Carried to it's logical conclusion, it is a circuitous argument that doesn't hold up.

Murtha's responsible and proper statement during his press conferences and TV appearances should have been something along the line of." I do not have any comment on the guilt or innocence of the accused military personnel. I will the allow appropriate legal system and Military investigators to do their jobs, and refrain from statements that might prejudice the outcome of the case. Any statement otherwise by a member of the Senate would be inappropriate and could damage the credibility and esteem of this office." He could then go on with the usual Bush and military bashing refrain without defaming anyone.

Unfortunately I think the author is correct and Murtha is likely to be found innocent and that Marine, as well as the other Marines involved in that case reputations' will be permanently soiled. The result of Murtha's victory in the lawsuit will only serve to set the stain in a court of law. The incredible injustice of that is difficult for me to stomach.

In an honorable world, his groundless attacks on those Marines would carry additional liability on his part due to the incredible power and weight of a Senators words. Murtha should suffer additional penalty because of his position not less. Murtha interfered with an investigation and prosecution in progress that prejudiced it.

I would argue that Murtha's comments were made not in the pursuit of his activities as a Senator, but during his attempts to undermine the troops and provide aid and comfort to the enemy. In a just world Murtha would be found guilty of treason and in violation of his oath of office while a US Senator. Those guilty of treason cannot be held immune to prosecution because of official immunity. Not even a United States Senator.

We live in a time in which, weak, spineless Government officials can get away with adulterous sex with interns and become near billionaires while in office at the expense of taxpayers. are able to destroy the reputations of truly heroic soldiers with complete immunity. I'm desirous of the old days of honorable duals. At least the libelous had to take into account the unlikely but entirely possible ultimate consequence of libelous public attack against another mans honor.

I believe that an aggressive public effort to expose Murtha should be undertaken against him. The flip side of his Senatorial immunity conferred on him by law, is the nearly as broad ability for voters and his opponents to attack him just as ruthlessly.

Let's hope the impossible happens and the courts agree with me. The fact that theMarine were found innocent in spite of the incredibly prejudicial media reports and political attacks proves miracles can happen.
