CNN Shows It's Hand, Again

Is anyone really surprised by all of this? Have we already forgotten this story? And FoxNews is supposed to be the biased one.


Never let it be said that I don't care. I've gotten a few complaints that the red background/yellow text has hard to read. I agree. I liked it and no problems, but I understand that some may have. So, I've changed it to something that should be a little easier on the eyes. Let me know.

Sgt. Antwan L. Walker
Sgt. Antwan L. Walker
22 years old from Tampa, Florida
2nd Forward Support Battalion, 2nd Infantry Division
May 18, 2005

Sgt. Antwan Walker was excited about coming home from Iraq to celebrate his 23rd birthday with his family and friends. His mother, Andrea Pringle, was busy planning the party when an Army official unexpectedly came to her house.

She said he told her Thursday that her son was killed the previous day by a bomb blast in Ramadi. The Department of Defense hasn't publicly confirmed his death.

Sgt. Antwan Walker, known as Twan to his friends and family, joined the Army in 2000. Pringle said her son joined to earn money for college.

"Twan had a lot of goals in life," She said. "He was very ambitious and very smart."

Sgt. Walker had been in Iraq for about a year. He called his family often but didn't want to talk about war. Instead, he talked about starting a real estate career and his three children.

"He was such a good dad," his mother said. "All he wanted to do was make a good life for his kids."

In April 2005, Walker wanted to talk about the fighting. He told his mother five soldiers he was traveling with were killed. His phone calls became more frequent after that.

Pringle said she had days when she couldn't eat or sleep because of her worries. But she never forgot to give her son her support.

"I always told him I'm proud and be safe".

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.

A Joint Operation

Mexican Drug Smugglers And Islamic Terrorist Work Together To Attack A Military Base In Arizona
Fort Huachuca, the nation's largest intelligence-training center, changed security measures in May after being warned that Islamist terrorists, with the aid of Mexican drug cartels, were planning an attack on the facility.

Fort officials changed security measures after sources warned that possibly 60 Afghan and Iraqi terrorists were to be smuggled into the U.S. through underground tunnels with high-powered weapons to attack the Arizona Army base, according to multiple confidential law enforcement documents obtained by The Washington Times.

"A portion of the operatives were in the United States, with the remainder not yet in the United States," according to one of the documents, an FBI advisory that was distributed to the Defense Intelligence Agency, the CIA, Customs and Border Protection and the Justice Department, among several other law enforcement agencies throughout the nation. "The Afghanis and Iraqis shaved their beards so as not to appear to be Middle Easterners."
So much for the argument that terrorists haven't crossed the border.

Who We're Dealing With

In case anyone is still wondering who we're dealing with in the war.
Meanwhile, horrifying new details emerged last night of the attempt by suicide bombers to kill Ms Bhutto on her return home from exile last month.

Investigators from Ms Bhutto's Pakistan People's Party said yesterday they believed the bomb, which killed 170 people and left hundreds more wounded, was strapped to a one-year-old child carried by its jihadist father.

They said the suicide bomber tried repeatedly to carry the baby to Ms Bhutto's vehicle as she drove in a late-night cavalcade through the streets of Karachi.

TXT The Troops

While everyone sits down to their turkey dinners with their families today, please remember that there are brave men and women who aren't able to do the same because they out risking their lives for the cause of freedom. But, thanks to America Supports You, you can send a TXT message to the troops thanking them for everything that they do. But, as you can see, today is the last day to do so. So, before everyone bellies up to the bar, so to speak, pull out your cell phones and take a couple of minutes to thank the men and women who help make it possible.

Spc. Roger G. Ling
Spc. Roger G. Ling
20 years old from Douglaston, New York
Company C, 1st Battalion, 34th Armor Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team
February 19, 2004

When Spc. Roger G. Ling's Humvee was struck by a homemade bomb in October of 2003, he survived the attack and he worked to keep his superior officer, Lt. Matt Homa, alive. Spc. Ling was riding in the backseat of the Humvee when it was hit. It destroyed Lt. Homa's door.

"It almost killed me. From what I've been told, Roger helped keep me awake until my medic arrived." said Lt. Homa. "Ling was a good kid. You could count on him to do anything."

Spc. Ling was killed, along with Second Lieutenant Jeffrey C. Graham of Elizabethtown, Kentucky, when their unit came under fire from insurgents in Khalidiyah, Iraq. Only two miles from where he'd survived the attack just four months earlier.

Leona Ling said she was grateful her brother came home in August of 2003 just before leaving for Iraq.

"He had to have his tonsils taken out," she said. "It was a blessing in disguise because we got to see him again."

In phone calls home, the soldier spoke wistfully of returning to New York and going to college. "He wanted to hear about what was going on at home and all the latest family gossip," Leona Ling recalled.

Survivors include his father, Wai Ling, a U.S. Army veteran.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.

Ron Paul. The New Fuhrer?

American Thinker has a great piece up that talks about extreme hate groups, their support for Ron "Summers Eve" Paul and his campaign's unwillingness to denounce or even try to separate themselves from them. This is something everyone should read. Even his "normal" supporters seem to be okay with it.

Ignoring Is Bliss

Next will may just see the 10,000th attack by Muslim terrorists and FrontPage Magazine believes that Big Media will ignore this. I would have to agree. The media doesn't like to shine a negative light on Muslims. That would be racists and intolerant.

Women Aren't Real People, Part IV

Our good "friends" the Saudi's have a system of harsh punishment in their country. So, if you ever decide to vacation in Saudi Arabia, make sure you're not the victim of a crime. Because you could get 200 lashes and six months in jail for being gang raped.

The Kids Aren't Alright

A group of Boy Scouts in Cambridge, Mass. had the boxes they set up to collect donations for American troops taken away because one sorry softbrain complained that it sent a "pro-war" message.
"We contacted the law department, and it was determined that the best course of action would be to remove the boxes," Weinerman said.
No. The best course of action was to tell this jerk to shut up and let the Boy Scouts to continue to help the heroes.

Star Trek Movie News 13 has the first pictures of Zachary Quinto in full Spock makeup on set of the new Trek movie. Now, if you're a Heroes fan, like I've become over the past month, you're just going to see Sylar dressed as Spock so hopefully he's been able to nail the voice and mannerisms of Nemoy or it might not work.

The Future Looks Bright

Students at NYU say they would be willing to sell their vote in next years election for a price. What is the going price for a vote today? $1 million, a year's tuition at NYU and a brand new iPod.

Cpl. Jordan M. Moehnle takes time out of leading his squad in a patrol through Fallujah's Nazaal district to spend some time interacting with local children. Moehnle, who is on his second tour in Iraq, said the changes he has witnessed since he was last here in 2006 have been dramatic. "The city was like the Wild West, we'd put our heads and and drive down (the middle of Fallujah) and hope not to get shot," he said. "Since we've been here (this year), we can stop and shoot the breeze."

Politics & Endorsements

It's inevitable. With every election cycle different groups and people who think they're important will endorse a candidate. Hollywood will be split on the Democrats, Pro-life groups endorse Thompson, unions endorse Hillary and Obama and, much to just about everyone's surprise, Pat Robertson has endorse Rudy. I guess Robertson may actually realize that abortion isn't the only issue out there. But do endorsements really mean anything? Question: has an endorsement ever affected the way you vote in an election?

No. Endorsements are dumb, in my opinion. They mean nothing more than someone backing someone else with the same views. Except Robertson that is. I couldn't care less who's supported by what group or person.

Star Trek Movie News 12

A site called JFX Online has the first photos from the set of Star Trek. They're all extras, no stars, and they're all in the parking lot covered with long blue coats to conceal what they're wearing. So we have no idea what their uniforms look like. Will they be the bright colored shirts and black pants from TOS or will they be something between them and the overalls worn by the cast in Enterprise? Don't know. What I would like to see is it start out with something in between then go to the classic TOS uniforms near the end of the picture.

Hollywood's Iraq Is A Flop

"Rendition". Bomb.
"In the Valley of Elah". Bomb
"The Kingdom". Bomb

It seems that Hollywood hasn't had good luck when it comes to attacking the military lately.
"These movies have to be entertaining," Harris told AFP. "You can't just take a movie and make it anti-war or anti-torture and expect to draw people in.
Or maybe, just maybe, people are sick and tired of Hollywood's hatred for the military and America. Just a thought.

More Crap With Immigration In This Country

Two Dozen Illegal Immigrants Arrested Using Fake Badges to Work at O'Hare International Airport
One affidavit from a temporary worker who cooperated with authorities said Benitez told him to look through a box containing about 20 airport security badges and to pick one with a picture that resembled his own face.

The affidavits allege that Ideal Staffing told workers they needed to have identification, but that the documents did not have to be legitimate, and also accused the company of supplying some workers with deactivated badges issued in other names.
However, ladies and gentlemen, the immigration situation in America a big enough concern for our government to do anything but talk about how it needs to be fixed. Just because it's dead simple for an illegal alien to get a job at an important hub of travel like O'Hare doesn't mean we have anything to worry about. Before law makers can address this they have to make sure everyone has gone green. That's more important. A terror attack is only a possibility. Being killed by rising water because of CO2 is guarantee. It's called priorities.

Army Spc. Eric S. McKinley
Army Spc. Eric S. McKinley
24 years old from Corvallis, Oregon
Company B, 2nd Battalion, 162nd Infantry Regiment, Army National Guard
June 13, 2004

An avid outdoorsman, Spc. McKinley worked as a baker at Alpine Bakery in Corvallis, Ore. Upon his return from Iraq, he hoped to open a juice bar in the college town to provide a drug and alcohol-free environment for young people. Friends and co-workers remember Spc. McKinley as a quiet, caring young man who dyed his hair, sported several tattoos and loved ska and rock music. His senior yearbook picture showed a grinning young man with spiked hair dyed red and green. In other 1998 yearbook pictures, he has purple and blue hair in a mohawk.

Spc. Eric McKinley was killed when a roadside bomb north of Baghdad detonated destroying two vehicles and wounded four other Oregon soldiers. They were identified as Staff Sgt. Phillip Davis, 23, of Albany; Sgt. Matthew Zedwick, 23, of Bend; Cpl. Shane Ward, 23, of Corvallis and Pvt. Richard Olsen, 23, of Independence.

Almost 500 people attended the memorial service for Spc. McKinley at Starker Arts Park in Corvallis. There was a mix of people dressed in either military or punk attire — including McKinley’s six-year-old cousin, who, in tribute, wore his hair in a bright green mohawk.

Coventry Pacheco, McKinley’s fiancee, sat in the first row at his celebration-of-life service. They hadn’t set a wedding date, but were planning to get married.

He was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star for meritorious service, a Purple Heart and the Oregon Distinguished Service Award. U.S. and Oregon flags were presented to his parents, Tom McKinley of Salem and Karen Hilsendager of Philomath.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.

Can anyone really be surprised? I mean, this is the home of Keith Olbermann and the former home of Phil Donoghue. MSNBC is the home of far-Left hate so Rosie would be a perfect fit. I would say that it would be a miserable failure, but we've seen Left-wing hatred on the rise in this country so a Rosie with an Olbermann lead in would be a dream for these idiots.

Talk Show Double Standard

By now you've all heard about what happened at Oprah's school in Africa. But I wonder how many of you have caught the double standard people have about this story. If you'll remember back a few years, talk show host Kathi Lee Gifford got into some hot water over her clothing line using children to make the clothes. She was ripped apart by the media and people in general. Some still make jokes about it today. And yet, Oprah has received nothing but sympathy. Why is this? Well, I have two theories. What are the two differences between Oprah and Gifford?

1) Oprah is a Democrat and Gifford is a Republican. Could this play into it? Maybe, but not to the extent as I think the second reason does.

2) And that second reason is that Oprah is black and Gifford is white. That's what I think the main reason is. People don't want either be seen as racist or feel like they may be racist so they sympathize with Oprah and wonder how she doing. Will she be all right? Can she overcome this tragedy? There have been jokes and comedy skits about Oprah. But those were in good fun. People don't want to do anything that would give appearance of an attack.

Bush Derangement Syndrome At Dem Debate

Hey, Democrats. News flash, Bush isn't running.

47 times they brought up his name at their debate. Yes, the Dems actually had a debate on Oct. 30. But don't feel bad about not seeing it. It was on MSNBC, so no one saw it.

Media Study

A new study done by the Project for Excellence in Journalism and Harvard's Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy has found that the media is biased towards Democrats.
Democrats are not only favored in the tone of the coverage. They get more coverage period. This is particularly evident on morning news shows, which "produced almost twice as many stories (51% to 27%) focused on Democratic candidates than on Republicans."

The most flagrant bias, however, was found in newspapers. In reviewing front-page coverage in 11 newspapers, the study found the tone positive in nearly six times as many stories about Democrats as it was negative
In a related study, The Center For The Obvious has found that more people tend to wear coats during the Winter months than during the Summer months and that humans tend to buy more CD's than dogs.

Suck On That, Fred Phelps

A judge in Maryland has ordered that the Westboro Baptist Cult must pay the father of a fallen Marine $10.9 million for protesting at his son's funeral.
As far as their picketing goes, they want to do it in front of a courthouse, they want to do it in a public park, I could care less. But I couldn't let them get away with doing this to our military," Al Snyder said
Damn right. I saw something on FNC that's not in this article. They were interviewing the father, Al Snyder, and Fred Phelps said that if his appeal fails he'll just declare bankruptcy and he, Snyder, will never seen any of that $10.9 million. Either way this asshole pays.
