Reality vs. Photo Ops...

Wow! I wish I had more to add to this first video clip but it is simply the best explanation I've heard for why Obama has made a terrible decision to try KSM in a federal court.

Among other things, SEN. LINDSEY GRAHAM says: "If you're gonna prosecute anybody in civilian court, our law is clear that the moment custodial interrogation occurs, the defendant, the criminal defendant, is entitled to a lawyer and to be informed of their right to remain silent. The big problem I have is you're criminalizing the war, that if we caught bin Laden tomorrow, we have mixed theories and couldn't turn him over to the CIA, the FBI, military intelligence for an interrogation on the battlefield, because now you're saying he's subject to criminal court in the United States and you're confusing the people fighting this war."

Another reason this is a pathetic decision on Obama's part is that we will now give these terrorists a televised platform from which to spew their hatred.


On nearly the same day that the above clip was filmed, Obama was in Joe Cool mode with the fighting men and women. I'm not going to pretend he didn't pull off this line and get a respectable laugh. I'm not going to imply that the soldiers didn't feel flattered that he called them a photo op... I'm just saying that if a Republican leader were that glib about those we put in harms way while dithering about their mission, he or she would be excoriated. On a more serious note, I think this tone is foreshadowing of the fact that he is about to end his dithering about future deployments in the least combative way possible, and he will probably time his announcement to capitalize on the Holiday Season. That, too, will be well recieved at first....but then we will remember that this person is still in candidate mode...still candidating for something beyond what he has already gained...this person is the same candidate who would not wear an American flag lapel pin for years until a veteran at another photo op asked him to do so while the cameras rolled.

[In the above montage of photo ops is the one he authorized in NYC near the anniversary and site of 9-11 in which the public thought we were under attack, but hey, he got a nice photo of AF1 in front of the Statue of Liberty, and that's what counts.]

Meet Governor Rick Perry of Texas...


The tenth Ammendment reads as follows:

"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

Think about that in light of what Obama and Pelosi and Reid are trying to do right now. Never has the White House pushed more state governors into a serious study of the implications of the Tenth Ammendment.

When Unions Overstep

I did not know this about FedEx and UPS. Makes me want to use FedEx in the same way that I wish I could go buy a new Ford just to say "Thank you for not taking the bailout money and being the most successful US carmaker during these hard times."

In less than two minutes, this clip will teach you a lot about free enterprise, unions, and the government's power to play favorites with the thugs (and community organizers) that put them in office. We are seeing the birth of a new form of government that can "absolutely, positively guarantee that it can crush any business overnight." [And that goes for private health care providers, too.]

The Power of Seeing the Truth

Back in August, I speculated about why the state of Connecticut banned 3-D ultrasounds. This story confirms my theory to some extent. The director of this Planned Parenthood watched a 3-D ultrasound of an abortion in progress and suddenly understood the reality of her job with Planned Parenthood, the business ($) of abortion, and her need to become an advocate for life.

"Finally what happened one day was I actually was in the room when a different type of abortion procedure was being done. And that day I just thought, I can't do this anymore," said Johnson. Read full story here.
