Bush Refuses to Ban Waterboarding

March 8, 2008

Kudos to President Bush for not backing down on the issue of permitting terrorists to enjoy watersports:

President Bush said Saturday he vetoed legislation that would ban the CIA from using harsh interrogation methods such as waterboarding to break suspected terrorists because it would end practices that have prevented attacks.

“The bill Congress sent me would take away one of the most valuable tools in the war on terror,” Bush said in his weekly radio address taped for broadcast Saturday. “So today I vetoed it,” Bush said. The bill provides guidelines for intelligence activities for the year and includes the interrogation requirement. It passed the House in December and the Senate last month.

“This is no time for Congress to abandon practices that have a proven track record of keeping America safe,” the president said.

Look, no one here enjoys waterboarding. It’s an immoral, sinful pastime. But the terrorists enjoy the practice, and President Bush is making a perfectly valid point: in a nation where the deviant activity known as “snowboarding” is 100% legal, how can he be expected to ban its cousin? Why should worthless snow-Hippies get to damn themselves to Hell, but the CIA not be permitted to use similar sporting pleasures as leverage to extract information from terrorists?

You can’t have it both ways, America. Either you can ban all sinful demon-loving sports, or keep your awful mountain hobby and let the CIA keep their interrogation “carrot.”

Let Freedom Ring in Cuba!

February 19, 2008

Fidel CastroThe Evil One has chosen to end his disgraceful rule:

An ailing, 81-year-old Fidel Castro resigned as Cuba’s president Tuesday after nearly a half-century in power, saying he will not accept a new term when parliament meets Sunday.

The end of Castro’s rule – the longest in the world for a head of government – frees his 76-year-old brother Raul to implement reforms he has hinted at since taking over as acting president when Fidel Castro fell ill in July 2006. President Bush said he hopes the resignation signals the beginning of a democratic transition.

“My wishes have always been to discharge my duties to my last breath,” Castro wrote in a letter published Tuesday in the online edition of the Communist Party daily Granma. But, he wrote, “it would be a betrayal to my conscience to accept a responsibility requiring more mobility and dedication than I am physically able to offer.”

Adios, scumbag. Countless Commies are weeping their beady little eyes out right now, but real Christians are tallying up your victims and offering hosannahs to the Almighty!

Fidel Castro and Che GuevaraRedstate has a good post up on this subject.

The media, always willing to prop up a communist dictator, loves to talk about Castro’s survival. Next to Saddam Hussein’s electoral victories, it is one of the most fawning statements the media gives out to anyone.

Castro survived Eisenhower. Castro survived Kennedy. He survived Nixon, Carter, Reagan, Bush 41, and Clinton.

He won’t survive George W. Bush. For all you media types stopping by, let me repeat that so you can cry a little longer — Fidel Castro will not survive the reign of George W. Bush.

It is a sad day for America haters — the grand daddy champion of the champions of the underprivileged who don’t really care about the underprivileged has given up power in anticipation of meeting his maker on the short path to hell.

I couldn’t have said it any better myself.

President BushGeorge Bush’s Presidency has seen freedom spread from Afghanistan to Iraq, from Lebanon to Kosovo, from the Ukraine to Libya. Now our Southern neighbors are at the cusp of liberty, cleaning out an unpleasant cranny of Bolshevism in a back corner of our hemisphere. Fidel’s brother is a weakling whose power will fail. Fidel will be dead very, very soon. Cuba will join Christian world again in freedom and brotherhood.

God’s will be done! May God bless these United States!

UPDATE: An example of the sheer idiocy one would expect from the Left on this subject:

The history behind Cuba and the rise of Castro is complex, and I do not agree with him in any way that I am aware of, but I do have to admire the fact that he stuck it to the US for 49 years. With the way we like to go around and rearrange the world, the fact that he was able to stay that long is pretty interesting.

Hooray for Castro! He hated America just like the liberals do!

God, I hope when Cuba embraces democracy they let us expand Guantanamo and incarcerate these nuts in it. That couldn’t happen soon enough for me.

Update (by Psycheout): Apparently CNN sent an early morning email to its anchors ordering them to go easy on the communist dictator:

Smoking gun evidence about how the mainstream media and particularly CNN, which we have always referred to as the castro news network, is trying to sanitize castro’s legacy, EVEN NOW!

As if health care and education were a good enough excuse to violate human rights. We have to be fair now don’t we?

The shocking email is included in its entirety at the link.

Bush Toes the Line in the Sand Keeping America Safe

February 14, 2008

President George W. BushBush is telling those Hippies in Congress that he won’t take orders from the Hate and Ashbury Street rabble when it comes to keeping this country secure from Islamism:

US President George W. Bush plans to veto legislation passed by the Senate to bar the CIA from using harsh interrogation methods including waterboarding, a spokeswoman said Thursday.

“The president will veto that bill,” said White House spokeswoman Dana Perino.

“The United States needs the ability to interrogate effectively, within the law, captured Al-Qaeda terrorists.”

The Democratic-led Senate voted 51-45 on Wednesday in favor of a bill calling for the Central Intelligence Agency to adopt the US Army Field Manual, which forbids waterboarding and other types of coercive interrogation methods.

Acid BobIt’s heartening that America has 45 patriots in the Senate, including Senator Brownback. But the assembly is currently controlled by Harry Reid, who takes his marching orders from Nancy Pelosi, who takes hers from “Acid Bob,” some San Francisco lunatic who has way too much information about her personal proclivities. Acid Bob also has thousands of idiot Hippie friends, who are the kingmakers in the worthless state of California. A once-decent state was taken over by moonbat drug dealers, and suddenly idiots like Pelosi and Barbara Boxer got jobs. A cautionary tale for the rest of us.

However, the vote fell short of the two-thirds majority needed to overcome a presidential veto. The House of Representatives passed similar legislation in December.

Democratic New York Senator Charles Schumer said that if Bush “vetoes intelligence authorization, he will be voting in favor of waterboarding.”

Got Water?Good! God wants America to waterboard. It’s not torture; it doesn’t even drown these rats, much as they deserve it. It merely simulates drowning, much as Islam simulates religion. It is not torture; it’s a harmless prank, not unlike those encountered during fraternity hazings. Anyone who grew up with siblings has endured far worse pain and humiliation. Why, my brother Scott once told me I was the adopted offspring of an American sailor and a Cuban prostitute. The emotional pain he caused was far, far worse than the time he stuck a garden hose in my mouth and turned it on. I speak with substantial personal experience on these matters. Waterboarding is not torture, and the only people who’d say otherwise are worthless Hippie Kumbaya-singers and Islamists whose personal idea of a good time is sawing your head off just for setting foot in Arabia.

Asked by a reporter if Bush, who leaves office in 2009, would be labeled as the first US president who favored torture, Perino rejected the assertion and dismissed Schumer’s argument as “simplistic.”

“Across the board people will see, over time, that this was a president who put in place tools to protect the country against terrorists,” Perino said.

Amen, Dana. The first President who favored torture was Thomas Jefferson. His Democrat Party has tormented this country for the last 230 years.

President George W. BushAcross the waterboard, Americans will see their nation saved and valuable intelligence gleaned from worthless scum captives whose lives are worth less than a single pinky from one of their victims. The proof is in the pudding- not one single domestic terrorist incident since 2001. Bush has kept this country safe, but the lefties want to open up Guantanamo and let the terrorists have jobs in your town. They oppose putting water up someone’s nose, yet they favor letting terrorists infiltrate into American society. You can’t make these crazies up, folks.

“The president does not favor torture. The president favors making sure we do all these programs within the law,” she said, adding that “all the interrogations that have taken place in this country have been done in a legal way.”

Perino said the United States does not currently use waterboarding, a simulated drowning technique denounced by rights groups as torture, even though the CIA has admitted using the technique in the past.

She reiterated the administration’s assertion last week that it would not rule out the use of such techniques in the future.

“Currently under the law it is not (allowed),” she said. “As we said last week as well, we are not going to talk about what may or may not be lawful in the future.”

No ACLUHopefully, that will soon change. America needs waterboarding in domestic law enforcement. Too many crimes are effected under the cover of phantasmic “civil liberties” having no basis in rational Christian society. The Fifth Amendment has killed more innocent victims than any gun in the world. With waterboarding, the police could change all that. Non-coercive interrogation methods utilizing a substance already comprising 80% of your body structure would soon teach these criminals the meaning of justice. If you didn’t learn civic responsibility on your neighbor’s slip-and-slide as a juvenile, your local police department will teach it to you as an adult. Hopefully, President Brownback will make it so.

Perino said the intelligence community’s view is that the Army Field Manual sets an inappropriate standard for seasoned CIA interrogators who are working to extract information from sophisticated militant operatives.

“Today with this bill that they are sending to us they would basically repeal the terrorist interrogation program in favor of something that will definitely weaken our ability to protect the country,” Perino said.

“This Army Field Manual is something that is public for all to see, and we know that Al-Qaeda trains to resist interrogation techniques such as those.”

WaterboardingThat’s another good point. Al Qaeda is an organization of crazies who’d rather blow themselves to smithereens killing you than see you driving a car or buying groceries at the local supermarket. Are we really supposed to believe that loud music and uncomfortable seating arrangements are going to make these loonies crack? Get real. Even sticking water up their noses is barely enough to get a peep out of them; notice that not a one has told us where Bin Laden lives. Something harsher should be done, but nothing currently legal will suffice. Still, waterboarding has given us the intelligence we need to defend ourselves, even if we don’t gain the additional intelligence we need to pursue the enemy abroad. I’ll take defensive victories over shameful defeats any day. And so will the other 300 million Americans who want to live secure, happy, and free from terrorist incidents. Waterboarding is the wellspring of our nation’s security.

Coulter: America Deserves to be Run By Moonbats

February 8, 2008


Ann Coulter has a point, here. If the Democrats win, the American people will flock to the Party of God. As it is, 8 years of moral, sensible government have made the American people complacent, and ripe for the lies and distortions of a deviant candidate like Hitlery.

As usual, Coulter’s one of the smarter analysts out there. (I do wish she’d strap her chest down, but otherwise I also find her a very moral, and very alluring, woman.) Where I tend to disagree with her is her failure to endorse Brownback. I’m not sure America can stand 4 years of Hitlery, even if it’s followed by another 2 decades of Republican dominance. We’re still languishing under a recession caused by Bill Clinton; do we really want a Hitlery recession added onto that? We’ll be in the Great Depression in no time if we keep letting Democrats rule us.

I agree with Coulter about one thing, though: maybe America deserves to be run by Democrats. If we can’t elect God’s candidate, then Hell’s choice is our substitution.

Hooray for George Bush!

January 24, 2008

President George W. BushWe’re all about to get some money! Even the Communist News Network is celebrating!

American taxpayers would get checks of several hundred dollars from the federal government under a plan to stimulate the economy, sources said Thursday.

Congressional leaders of both parties were talking with their membership to sell the plan, sources said.

Sources on Capitol Hill and at the Treasury Department said congressional and White House negotiators agreed upon checks of $600 per individual and $1,200 per couple who paid income tax and who filed jointly.

People who did not pay federal income taxes but who had earned income of more than $3,000 would get checks of $300 per individual or $600 per couple.

President Bush, and Congressional Republicans, are giving me my free money back, just for being an American patriot. I’ve earned my money, and they want me to have it. Democrats tried to stall the bill, of course, but that’s why they’re Democrats.

To get to the agreement, Democrats dropped calls for increases in food stamps and an extension of unemployment compensation. Republicans agreed to allow people who pay Social Security taxes but not income taxes to get the checks, sources said.

Democrats talk about helping the economy, but when you cut to the chase they’re always Socialist to the core.

Thank God we have sensible policymakers in the White House! Thank God we have enough decent folks in the Congress to back them up when they take steps to save America!

Huckabee Reacts To the Bhutto Assassination

December 27, 2007

Benazir BhuttoToday’s assassination of former Prime Minister and Pakistani opposition leader, Benazir Bhutto, is an undeniable tragedy that has dominated the news today. It appears from media reports that she was shot in the neck before being targeted by a suicide bomb blast. Her enemies were taking no chances.

Mike Huckabee commented on the news today, noting that thankfully in The United States we vote “not with bullets but with ballots.” A reporter pressed Mike for further comment, but Huck wasn’t taking the bait. He resisted grandstanding or making any specific criticisms. That’s a smart move. It’s not his place to do so at this point in time.

I asked him what he would do right now if he were President to tackle the situation. He avoided taking a strong policy position, saying he would offer sincere sympathies to the people of Pakistan, and monitor who’s behind it.

That’s exactly what should be done. Pakistan has to deal with the situation. Injecting himself into the tragedy and to attempt to switch the focus to himself would be the wrong thing to do.

When asked what he thinks of the Musharraf government and how it has handled the security situation and aid from the US, he replied, “I think today is not the best day to comment on what the Musharraf government should or shouldn’t have done” though “we need a full accounting of that money.”

Again, criticizing Musharraf, our ally, would be a stupid thing to do without having access to all the relevant information which Huck, as a candidate, is not privy to. It’s up to President Bush to handle the situation. A Presidential candidate should not undercut or try to usurp the responsibility of a sitting President at such a sensitive time.

He was also asked if today’s news highlights why the next President needs to have foreign policy, which he lacks. His reponse: “I think it’s more important to have the right principles for the American people.”

Another good answer. Who has the right principles? Mike Huckabee. He is clearly a great communicator and is quite familiar with the religious and philosophical issues underlying the current struggle against radical Islam. This is obvious to his current supporters and will also become clear those future ones as the race progresses.

But making specific policy statements and attempting to speak on behalf of the U.S. Government as a candidate is something he is unwilling to do. Good job avoiding the media minefield, Mike. You didn’t take the bait. It demonstrates your wisdom. Mike Huckabee demonstrates that he is well-suited for the Presidency every time he speaks. People would be wise to listen.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Benazir Bhutto’s family and the people of Pakistan. I hope that those responsible are tracked down and caught. Justice must be served. Terrorism cannot be seen as a valid and effective political tool. The world will be engulfed in conflagration if cowardly attacks like this go unpunished.

Update: Running with a minor criticism in the CBS report, Jason Bonham uses the opportunity to attack Huckabee over what he said regarding “Marshall [sic] law.” (The original post included the phrase “in the throws of Marshall Law.” LOL!)

Huckabee: “what impact does it have on whether or not there’s going to be martial law continuing in Pakistan.”

When something is discontinued, it can be resumed (or even continued). I see nothing odd in that statement, although Huck might have been clearer for Jason’s sake, I suppose. But it’s far more important to attack Huckabee over word choice than to simply be concerned and express regret about what’s happening in Pakistan. Classy, Jason.

Update 2: Speaking of classy, Ron Paul places the blame for the assassination squarely on the United States.  Nuance!
