DemoRATS Bring NEW Meaning To The Word Lowlife Scum


Transcript:

GRAHAM: …Are you really a closet bigot?
ALITO: I’m not any kind of a bigot, I’m not.
GRAHAM: No, sir, you’re not. And you know why I believe that? Not because you just said it — but that’s a good enough reason, because you seem to be a decent, honorable man. I have got reams of quotes from people who have worked with you, African American judges — I’ve lost my quotes.
Judge Higginbotham — I don’t know where they’re at. But glowing quotes about who you are, the way you’ve lived your life; law clerks, men and women, black and white, your colleagues who say that Sam Alito, whether I agree with him or not, is a really good man.
You know why I believe you when you say that you disavow those quotes? Because the way you have lived your life and the way you and your wife are raising your children.
Let me tell you this: Guilt by association is going to drive good men and women away from wanting to sit where you’re sitting. And we’re going to go through a bit of this ourselves as congressmen and senators.
People are going to take a fact that we got a campaign donation from somebody who’s found out to be a little different than we thought they were — and our political opponent’s going to say, “Aha, I got you!”
And we’re going to say, “Wait a minute. I didn’t know that. I didn’t take the money for that reason.”
And you know what? I’m going to believe these senators and congressmen for the most part, because that’s the way we do our business. We meet people here every day. We have photos taken with people — and sometimes you wish you didn’t have your photo taken.
But that doesn’t mean that you’re a bad person because of that association.
Judge Alito, I am sorry that you’ve had to go through this. I am sorry that your family has had to sit here and listen to this.

Wild Thing’s comment………….
Sen Graham’s voice cracked when he offered the apology to Mrs. Mrs. Alito, the man known as Kennedy that is grilling your husband is just a drunken pig with delusion of grandeur who murdered a young woman over 35 years ago. He is not fit to shine your husband’s shoes.
How Kennedy of all people can dare to be critical of anyone is beyond my comprehension. He should have been in jail many years ago.
I am SOOOOOoooooooooo done, so totally done with the left and their behavior, beliefs and treatment of others. Then add into that factor that I truly believe they need to be punished for their treason to America and to our Military.

F-16 Pilots Get New Ear Piece

From Blackanthem Military News
HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah, January 11, 2006

A new earpiece is set to be implemented among Hill’s F-16 pilots affording them better hearing protection and an improved mission focus.
The 4th Fighter Squadron’s “Fighting Fuujins” will receive the new Attenuating Custom Communication Earpiece System this month. The earpiece was developed at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base by the Battle Space Acoustics Department. The Department is part of the Air Force Research Laboratory’s Human Effectiveness Directorate.
“The new system should increase communication intelligibility for our pilots,” said Capt. Eydin Hansen, Aerospace physiologist with the 75th Aerospace Medicine Squadron. “Currently the pilots are using foam earplugs and headsets with speakers that offer 8-12 decibels of protection, while sacrificing communication intelligibility.”
Currently, pilots are having a hard time hearing tones, many associated with air traffic controllers and ground-based controllers. The new earplug system costs less than $600 per person and is made from deep ear canal impressions from the pilots. It has a speaker system giving the pilots something similar to that used with an iPod, ultimately providing better clarity while giving them 25 to 30 decibels of protection.
This technology was initially designed for the ground crews and then adapted for the state-of-the-art F-22A Raptor. Hill pilots are excited to be using the next generation of hearing protection and communications device in the F-16 Fighting Falcon.
Capt. Dax Cornelius, 4th Fighter Squadron Demo Team member, said that while performing he experiences violent negative and positive G-forces and most of the time his earplugs tend to fall out.
“We’ll be flying with one plug in and one out,” he said. “It can be very distracting to have the radio blast in one ear and not in the other,” said Captain Cornelius. “This new system is really going to allow us to focus on the mission rather than the peripherals.”

Democrats The Party of TREASON

“Congressmen who willfully take actions during wartime that damage morale and undermine the military are saboteurs and should be arrested, exiled, or hanged.”
—- Abraham Lincoln

From the Code Pink Website……………….

Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.) met with leaders of the anti-American group Code Pink last week at the anti-Operation Iraqi Freedom meeting in Arlington, Virginia hosted by Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.)
Code Pink posted pictures of the meeting along with a statement indicating they will be working with Rep. Murtha to deliver “kindness and support to the wounded soldiers” at Walter Reed.
Code Pink has given $600,000 to the terrorists in Fallujah, participated in war crimes tribunals against America and has called American soldiers “killers” on their website among many treasonous actions.
Text of Code Pink’s statement on meeting Rep. Murtha:
Thank You Congressman Murtha! CODEPINK co-founder Gael Murphy and DC coordinator Allison Yorra met with Congressman Murtha to thank him for his courageous stand on Iraq. We presented him with our pink badge of courage and pink flowers sent by CODEPINK members nationwide. Rep Murtha was very appreciative of these gestures and requested that we ask legislators to support H.J Res 73 (Murtha’s resolution). He also requested that we use additional donations for the wounded at Walter Reed. DC CODEPINK along with other peace groups involved in the weekly vigil at Walter Reed recently delivered baskets of goodies to the wounded at Walter Reed. Together, with Murtha’s office, we will be continuing this outpouring of kindness and support to the wounded soldiers from CODEPINK.
Terrorists Quote CODE PINK Propganda As Justification For Killing American Troops
In the recent article, “Tribal backlash against insurgents aids US in Iraq” by Antonio Castaneda reporting from Samara, Iraq published in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette Dec 3, 2005, you see the following revelation:
Last year, al-Qaida in Iraq, led by Jordanian terrorist Abu Musab Zarqawi, openly operated in Samarra, and the group’s black flags fluttered from rooftops until U.S. forces regained control.
U.S. soldiers heard some Samarra residents speak openly of the right of “legitimate resistance” to the American presence.
Where do terrorists get the concept of their “right of legitimate resistance” allowing them to kill not only American military personnel, but innocent women and children in hospitals, mosques and markets?
From Code Pink, an alledged peace group that continually tells terrorists that they have a right to kill Americans, as well as innocent Iraqi women and children.
Where has Code Pink told the terrorists that they have such rights? In the “Beirut Communiqué”, the “Declaration of the Jury of Conscience” of the World Tribunal on Iraq and on the CODE PINK website.
CODE PINK Endorsement of “Resistance” in the “Beirut Communiqué”
In Beirut, Lebanon, September 17-19, 2004, the meeting was titled “Where Next for the Global Anti-War and Anti-Globalization Movements?, An International Strategy Meeting”. The “CONFERENCE COMMUNIQUE” of the Global Anti-War Movement declared:
“We support the right of the people of Iraq and Palestine to resist the occupations.”
CodePink:Women for Peace co-founder Gael Murphy is listed as an endorser of the conference and communiqué.

CODE PINKS Endorsement of “Resistance” and “Acts of Desperation” at the WTI

In the summer of 2005, in Istambul Turkey, another such “people’s tribunal” called the World Tribunal on Iraq was held.
“Finding #11 of the “DECLARATION OF JURY OF CONSCIENCE” can be summarized as:
“When the armed resistance commits certain acts of desperation against the brutal occupying forces it is legitimate and justified.”
Click and page down slightly to see Finding #11 at this site
Here’s an excerpt of Finding #11 from the WTI Declaration:

11. There is widespread opposition to the occupation. Political, social, and civil resistance through peaceful means is subjected to repression by the occupying forces. It is the occupation and its brutality that has provoked a strong armed resistance and certain acts of desperation. By the principles embodied in the UN Charter and in international law, the popular national resistance to the occupation is legitimate and justified.

You can also go HERE and confirm that Code Pink, Veterans For Peace and United For Peace and Justice all “Endorse” the WTI and it’s findings.
Kill A Soldier, CODE PINK Is What Understands
Caught with their pink slips showing, Code Pink will deny that their endorsements include the killing of our troops. But make no mistake about it, Code Pink understood that it did in fact endorse killing. Another co-founder of Code Pink, Jodie Evans was a participant in the WTI. Her description of her participation during the WTI was posted at Code Pink, since removed but widely achived on left wing sites such as AlterNet.
Here is Jodie’s blog entry “Testimonials of Resistance” on how she could not kill a soldier herself, but when the terrorists do, she understands:

We must begin by really standing with the Iraqi people and defending their right to resist. I can remain myself against all forms of violence, and yet I cannot judge what someone has to do when pushed to the wall to protect all they love. The Iraqi people are fighting for their country, to protect their families and to preserve all they love. They are fighting for their lives, and we are fighting for lies.


As the photo below shows, DNC Chairman Howard Dean had no problem endorsing Code Pink by holding up their logo emblazoned t-shirts for all the world to see.
Wild Thing’s comment………….
“Code Pink has given $600,000 to the terrorists” andother link HERE.
I remember when they did this an even a fraction of that would finance IEDs to kill American forces or other innocents.
Funny ( NOT) that she can say this- “We must begin by really standing with the Iraqi people and defending their right to resist. I can remain myself against all forms of violence, and yet I cannot judge what someone has to do when pushed to the wall to protect all they love.”, but if GWB and his warmongering crowd (in which I proudly count myself!)do this to protect the American people, then suddenly we’re a bunch of baby killers. Go figure. They get to love their families and country but we’re not accorded the same belief. Oh, sorry!!! I forgot for a moment they’re socialists and don’t believe in allowing Americans the right of self defense and self determination
Never forget, about a year ago our soldiers on the ground in Iraq got tired of being picked off by the terrorists holed up in holy Fullajah and finally cleaned them out. Within days, Cindy Sheehan and her pals at Code Pink Cindy and her pals at Code Pink began to raise money for their “freedom-fighting heroes”.
And check this out while you are at it. In the first few paragraphs you will see of course the names of Cindy Sheehan and Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney but of course. sheesh! GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!
United States. Resolution 1368:

Calls on all States to work together urgently to bring to justice the perpetrators, organizers and sponsors of these terrorist attacks and stresses that those responsible for aiding, supporting, or harboring the perpetrators, organizers and sponsors of these acts will be held accountable.

From Article III, Section 3 of the United States Constitution:
Clause 1: Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.
Clause 2: The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.
And I repeat this……………

“Congressmen who willfully take actions during wartime that damage morale and undermine the military are saboteurs and should be arrested, exiled, or hanged.”
—- Abraham Lincoln

If all of this isn’t TREASON I don’t know what the fuck is! As Clause 2 states, Congress has the power to punish traitors to America and therefore our Representatives and Senators should most definitely be strongly prevailed upon to go after these individuals and their backers. This will contionue to have my blood boiling, that “Code Pink” and other such organizations are directly aiding those terrorists who are trying to kill our servicemen and women in Iraq without any consequences here at home other than negative publicity.
A very long time ago I read a book called……”A Man Without A Country”. It’s been a long time ago, but I remember reading of a man who declared he “hated his country”, in a court of law. He was then sentenced to life on a ship, never landing on land, and never having a country to claim as his own. It was an enlightening experience, and the man suffered unbelievably as a result. I’m sure there can be a lot of flaws found in this story, but it does makes one think a little bit more about what their country means to them and what are true criticisms, and what are selfish whinings.

“Breathes there a man with soul so dead,
Who never to himself hath said,
This is my own, my native land…”

Let’s Hear From People That Fought Alongside Jack Idema

Let’s call on the testimony of people Jack Idema fought alongside in the battle to rid Afghanistan of the Taliban and al-Qaeda. These are the men of the Northern Alliance (properly, the United Front), and to understand how they fit into Jack Idema’s story, it’s necessary to understand a little of their long and honourable history defending Afghanistan from Her enemies.
Much of this success can be attributed to one person, Commander Ahmad Shah Massoud. Though sneeringly described as a ‘warlord’ by MSM, Massoud was actually a highly educated and moderate man who believed passionately that the future of Afghanistan should be both democratic and free of fanaticism. Fortunately for the Afghan people, Massoud was also a military genius, responsible for inflicting a staggering 60% of the total casualties suffered by the Red Army during the Soviet occupation.
After the Russians were expelled, Massoud set up democratic rule in the regions of Afghanistan his forces controlled, spending the remaining years of his life struggling to remove first the murderous Hekmatyar, then the Taliban, from power.
You can read about Massoud’s life here, but what must be understood about this remarkable man is that he, as well as those who followed him, are exactly the kind of people we need on our side in the WOT.
Here’s Massoud on democracy:

The future government should be formed through elections by the people. Men and women should take part. The only form of government, which can balance the different ethnicities, is democracy.

Here is Massoud’s reaction to the Taliban’s demand that he leave Afghanistan after they seized power:

Is it just that when we were in Kabul leading the country, when we had the people’s consent, we promised to protect them, to defend our independence and to take care of Afghanistan and its people and now that these people are in great danger we would leave them? Is this really justice? I do not think it is justified. I will stay in this country until my last breath and resist. I am convinced that, God willing, Afghanistan one day will be free.

Commander Ahmad Shah Massoud, the Lion of Panjsher, was assassinated by al-Qaeda suicide bombers on 9th September, 2001.
Two weeks after that Jack Idema arrived in Afghanistan. He, and hundreds of other Special Forces soldiers, were under orders from coalition leaders to train and equip Northern Alliance forces in order to remove the Taliban. This, of course, was exactly the sort of work that Idema specialised in — After stints in Haiti, El Salvador, Thailand and Lithuania, he was one of the most capable men in the world at pulling ragged, ill-equipped armies together into crack fighting units. You can read press reports archived at SuperPatriots which detail some of the work Jack did with the Northern Alliance here, here, and here.
See, although MSM were chiefly interested in Idema during 2001, the Northern Alliance troops he trained and served alongside for three years deserve a hearing too. They’re brave soldiers, most of whom have spent their whole adult lives fighting for a free and democratic Afghanistan. What’s more, several of them were tortured, tried and imprisoned alongside Jack, Brent and Ed in September 2004.
One of these men, Major Ezmerai Amin, has this to say about Idema and the state of Afghanistan under Karzai:

Commander Massoud was right. But Massoud told us to follow his way, and I have dedicate my life to follow the way of Massoud because to save my country and the world. And my commander has too. This is why our people follow Jack, because he follow Massoud’s way. One time when I was still in Pulacharke I was very sad, and I said to Jack, fuck Massoud, because we follow Massoud’s way we are in prison. Then Jack remind to me that Massoud would never give up, he would keep to fight to make real freedom not freedom only for the rich people. We talked about how Massoud would not allow a road to be built to his village until all the country had roads. But this government, they buy rich cars and build roads to their villages while people are still starving and with no doctors.

Major Amin, like the other Afghans imprisoned with Jack, was released after their case went to appeal a year ago –Jack, Brent and Ed should have been freed at that point too, but the U.S. State Department and FBI put pressure on the Karzai government to illegally continue their detention. What’s worth noting, though, is that Major Amin pays Jack Idema the highest complement he can — He compares him to Massoud, modern Afghanistan’s greatest hero.
Then there’s Lieutenant ‘Zorro’ Rasuli:

Actually, Jack took me with him for just one month from General Atta, but I don’t know why he trust his life, his power, and everything on me, but I can say one thing; after the death of our leader Commander Massoud he will now be my commander on the rest of my life, and in any place I’m waiting for his orders.

Zorro means this. After he was released along with the other Afghans convicted with Idema, he elected to remain in prison until his three American compatriots are free.
So, question: if Idema were nothing more than a mercenary out to make a quick buck, why is it that he inspires such loyalty among Northern Alliance troops? The answer to this one should be obvious — The Afghan soldiers Idema trained and fought with see, in him, a similar commitment to rid the world of terrorism as the one they feel.
Here’s New Yorker writer, Jon Lee Anderson, offering us an insight into how this camaraderie played out during the war to remove the Taliban from power:

On the way down the mountain, Jack, who was armed and wearing full combat regalia, clambered onto one of the mujahideen tanks with a tin of white paint and a brush. He wrote, “N.Y.P.D.” on the tank’s green steel carapace. The mujahideen smiled obligingly and asked to borrow his paint. In lacy Farsi script they added the words “Dear Massoud, we will follow your way.”

Right now, three of men who fought that war are stuck in prison at the behest of the State Department. Meanwhile, just this week, President Karzai begged Taliban scumbag-in-chief Mullah Omar to ‘get in touch if he wanted peace’.
It’s difficult, not to conclude that something’s going badly wrong with a war in which we offer amnesty to the chief architects of 9/11, while imprisoning the men who risked their lives to bring these animals to justice.

Anyone reading this with their own blog can sign up for the weekly Free Jack Idema Blogburst by emailing Cao or Rottweiler Puppy for details. I’d urge everyone to do this.
If you want to know more about the story, Cao’s Blog has a large section devoted to Jack Idema. There’s also a timeline here, and, of course, a huge amount of information is available over at SuperPatriots, without whose work none of us would have learned about Jack’s story.

UPDATES ON: Insane Howard Dean Sunday Morning on CNN’s Late Edition With Wolf Blitzer

US Newswire

“There are no Democrats who took money from Jack Abramoff, not one, not one single Democrat. Every person named in this scandal is a Republican. Every person under investigation is a Republican. Every person indicted is a Republican. This is a Republican finance scandal. There is no evidence that Jack Abramoff ever gave any Democrat any money and we’ve looked through all of the F.E.C. reports to make sure that’s true…I know the Republican National Committee would like to get the Democrats involved in this. They’re scared. They should be scared. They haven’t told the truth. They have misled the American people, and now it appears they’re stealing from Indian tribes. The Democrats are not involved in this.”

Dean denies party ties to Abramoff
By Donald Lambro
THE WASHINGTON

Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean says that Democrats took no money from Jack Abramoff in the lobbying scandal, but a public-interest group official said yesterday that they did accept contributions from the lobbyist’s clients, who were trying to buy influence.
Mr. Dean has stepped up attacks on Republicans, charging, “Every person named in this scandal is a Republican.”
“Every person under investigation is a Republican. Every person indicted is a Republican. This is a Republican finance scandal,” Mr. Dean said Sunday on CNN’s “Late Edition.”
But Republican officials and a major public-integrity group counter his assertion with a growing list of Democrats who have received contributions from American Indian tribes represented by Abramoff, who has pleaded guilty to tax evasion and fraud in connection with his lobbying activities.
“What our list shows is that both Republicans and Democrats received contributions from Indian tribes that were represented at one time by Jack Abramoff,” said Lawrence Noble, executive director and general counsel for the Center for Responsive Politics.
“So the answer to Dean depends on how you define scandal,” Mr. Noble said. “I would say, broadly defined as a question of the tribes’ buying influence in Washington, it includes Democrats.”
The political news wire the Hotline has compiled a list of nearly three dozen Democrats who have received campaign contributions from Abramoff-related tribes. More than a dozen of them to date have refused to give back the money, saying that the contributions were legal.
Leading the list of Democrats is Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada, who has received $61,000 in campaign contributions from various donors with links to Abramoff. His office has said he will not return any of the funds because they “were part of lawful fundraising.”
Other Democrats listed who have refused to return Abramoff-linked money include Sens. Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas, Patty Murray of Washington and Ron Wyden of Oregon.
Some of the Democratic senators who have returned a portion of the money from Abramoff clients or donated it to charity include Max Baucus of Montana, Maria Cantwell of Washington, and Kent Conrad and Byron L. Dorgan of North Dakota.
A top aide to Mr. Dean defended the assertion that “as far as we know,” no Democrats were directly or indirectly part of the influence-buying scandal that is under a Justice Department investigation.
“Indian tribes are not criminals. Jack Abramoff is a criminal who did not give any money to Democrats,” said Karen Finney, the DNC’s spokeswoman.
But Mr. Noble said Abramoff may have had a hand in who received money from the tribes he represented.
“We assume that Abramoff gave the tribes a list of names of members [of Congress] who should receive contributions,” Mr. Noble said.

And take a gander at these :
An NRSC Report Shows That Nearly 90 Percent Of Senate “Democrats Have Taken Abramoff-Related Money.” “The NRSC has begun circulating among fellow Republicans new reports showing that all but five of the chamber’s 44 Democrats have taken Abramoff-related money. In addition, the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee have taken more than $1.2 million, according to records provided to The Washington Times.” (Charles Hurt, “Dorgan Returns Abramoff Money,” The Washington Times, December 14, 2005)
“If The Democrats Are Alleging That Republicans Are Guilty Of Any Wrongdoing, They’re Sitting In The Same Boat.” “Democrats have run two television advertisements in Montana, castigating Burns for his activities on behalf of Abramoff, but as the lobbyist’s taint spreads, its political impact may dissipate, said Brian Nick, spokesman for the National Republican Senatorial Committee. ‘If the Democrats are alleging that Republicans are guilty of any wrongdoing, they’re sitting in the same boat,’ he said. ‘It just becomes a nonstarter.’” (Jonathan Weisman and Derek Willis “Democrat On Panel Probing Abramoff To Return Tribal Donations,” The Washington Post, December 14, 2005)

Coffee An Aphrodisiac

Caffeine May Boost Female Sex Drive
By LiveScience Staff
posted: 09 January 2006
08:04 am ET

Caffeine motivates female rats to have more frequent sex, a new study suggests. But don’t start guzzling more coffee just yet.
Scientists gave 108 female rats a moderate dose of caffeine. The caffeine shortened the amount of time it took the females to return to males after a first romp, indicating they were more motivated to do it again.
Loading up on more caffeine is not expected to improve human sex drive in most cases, however.
“These rats had never had caffeine before,” said study leader Fay Guarraci, an assistant professor of psychology at Southwestern University. “In humans, it might enhance the sexual experience only among people who are not habitual users.”
The research could help scientists better understand sexual motivation, however.
“Understanding the circuits that control this behavior will help us understand how the brain works and what part of the brain mediates motivation because sexual behavior is a motivative behavior,” Guarraci said.

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R.-Ala.) Took Kennedy To Task

Kennedy Asserts Alito Is Racist….from Human Events Online

Among Sen. Teddy Kennedy’s many complaints about Samuel Alito, the one that caught the attention of Republicans today was his assertion that Alito is a racist.
“In Alito’s 15-years on the bench, Judge Alito has not written one single opinion on the merits in favor of a person of color who alleged race discrimination in the workplace.”
Moments later, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R.-Ala.) took Kennedy to task, leaving the liberal Massachusetts senator shaking his head.
Sessions cited three cases in which Alito demonstrated that “all Americans receive equal protection of the laws, regardless of race.”
Among them:
U.S. v. Kithcart: In this case, Alito said the Constitution doesn’t allow police officers to racially profile black drivers. His opinion, citing a violation of the 4th Amendment, stated: “The mere fact that Kithcart is black and the perpetrators had been described as two black males is plainly insufficient. … Officer Nelson could not justifiably arrest any African-American man who happened to drive by in any type of black sports car.”
Brinson v. Vaughn: Alito ruled that the Constitution don’t allow prosecutors to exclude black jurors. In his ruling, Alito granted the prisoner’s habeas petition. He said the Constitution guarantees “that a state does not use peremptory challenges to remove any black juror because of his race. Thus, a prosecutor’s decision to refrain from discrimination against some African-American jurors does not cure discrimination against others.”
Zubi v. AT&T: Alito authored the lone dissent in which he called for an expansive view of civil rights laws. In this case, the plaintiff sued his employer for firing him on the basis of race. While the majority ruled against the plaintiff’s claim based on the time it had taken him to bring his case, Alito rejected that argument. The Supreme Court later vindicated Alito’s view in a unanimous decision.

Acutally Kennedy asserted that a Mr. Alioto was a racist. The numbnut can’t even get his name right. Not only is Alito not a racist, but he wouldn’t leave a woman to drown so he could salvage a political career. love it when Sessions hands Kennedy his a$$ like this. Tah dah!

Money Connected To Harry Reid

From the Las Vegas Review Journal………….
Senator arranged for grant now involved in indictment of pastors

WASHINGTON — The money that led to the indictment this week of two Las Vegas pastors and the wife of one of them came from federal grants arranged by Sen. Harry Reid in September 2001, a Reid spokeswoman said Wednesday.
Moving to distance Reid from a possible scandal, aide Tessa Hafen said the senator sought the money on behalf of a nonprofit social services agency and not for the churches or persons who have been accused of mishandling the money.
“The money was administered by the Department of Justice, and it went to the agency in Nevada (Alliance Collegiums Association of Nevada),” Hafen said.
The Rev. Willie Davis, the longtime pastor of Second Baptist Church, and his wife, Emma, were indicted Tuesday on fraud charges with an associate minister, the Rev. McTheron Jones.
They are accused of spending $330,000 from federal grants on themselves although the money was intended for halfway houses for prison inmates in Southern Nevada.
The indictment identifies Willie Davis as president of the Alliance Collegiums Association of Nevada board of directors.
In late 2002, Emma Davis became executive director, and Jones was assistant director.
According to the indictment, a grant of $423,000 was approved for the alliance in September 2002.
The indictment charges the defendants of using the grant money to benefit themselves.
A Reid relationship with the Second Baptist Church surfaced in 1997, when the senator donated $250 to the church where Davis was and still is pastor.
The money came from John Huang, who was convicted of making illegal contributions to the 1996 re-election campaign of President Clinton.


hmmmm isn’t this MONEY laundrying?

At about the same time, Reid donated another $250 from Huang to the First African Methodist Episcopal Church in Las Vegas.
Reid said he made the contributions to the churches instead of returning the money to Huang because he did not think Huang deserved it.
Hafen said Reid has not made contributions to Davis or his church since 1997.
Reid has attended services at the Second Baptist Church “about three or four times” since 1997, Hafen said.
“He says hello to the pastor (Davis) when he goes to the church, but apart from that, the only other time he has seen him was in May when he met with about 30 or 40 ministers to organize a faith-based summit,” Hafen said.

Update from the Las Vegas Review Journal…. I am not going to post untruth’s abut keep it factual at all times..………..
CORRECTION ON 09/30/05 — A story in Thursday’s paper incorrectly said that Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., had not contributed money to the Second Baptist Church in Las Vegas since 1997. Reid gave the church $100 in December 1999, $500 in November 2002, $200 in September 2002 and $500 in February of this year from his campaign and political funds, as allowed by Senate rules. The story also mischaracterized the actions of a Reid staff member who discussed a federal grant that was tied to an indictment of church officials this week. Spokeswoman Tessa Hafen gave information about the grants in response to questions.

Wild Thing’s comment……
When Harry Reid goes to churches he does not contribute his own money. He contributes John Huang’s money.
Most folks I know contribute their OWN money. In some cases 10% of their income as the Bible asks. I guess the Dems just do everything different. Naw ya think? haha
Now let’s see it kind of breaks down like this………..
Republican money fraud=bad
Democrat money fraud=good
How to be a good A Democrat for Dummies 101 shall we say. sheesh!
And let me just for fun point this part out again. haha
The money came from John Huang, who was convicted of making illegal contributions to the 1996 re-election campaign of President Clinton.
Oh this is just to good to be true .. LOL!!

Military Wife Speaks Out To Cindy Sheehan

Taken from National Military Family Association Please look further down in this post at “Continued” for the entire writing or go to the link to read the entire statement.

The fact that my husband is on military deployment in Iraq does not make me unfortunate…….. there is a misconception that having my husband away on a military deployment makes me unfortunate. Please do not consider me unfortunate! Consider, just for a moment, that I might be incredibly blessed.
……….I’m on a journey that is unveiling a beautiful level of self-confidence. I believe that I am at a time in my life where God has my full attention to teach me what he feels I need to learn.
My circumstances may be demanding from time to time, yet I have never fallen from grace into a forgotten, subpar state of being. I, most definitely, am not unfortunate.

Wild Thing’s comments…………
There are wives and there are a-hem wives, and there are mothers and then there are breeders. Cindy Sheehan is a breeder. She shows no respect for her son. And I would bet she did not show him respect when he was alive.
This is so wonderful what this Military wife wrote. A woman like this stands along side her husband and knows he is making a difference in this world. He is a part of history, and she in being supportive makes the hardship of sacrifice a little bit easier for her husband. Cindy Sheehan will never understand that. She USES our Military to get her 15 minutes of fame. She uses her son’s service and death to draw attention to herself. Cindy is aiding the enemy with each breath she takes and every word she utters. What a difference in these two women.
