The Unbelieveable Press

When you read the text of questions asked of Scott Mclellan, the Press Secretary, please remeber that these are not Senate Democrats asking the questions, but members of the White House press who claim to be unbiased. Also keep in mind the backdrop to this conference is the false story published by Newsweek that led to riots and deaths in the Middle East. Powerline has a good list of the questions.

Remeber as well that before the election, the President held a press conference during which the media acted much like they did this time. The American people reacted negatively to such an obvious display of partisanship, and I suspect they will react the same way to this show.

Thye bad news is that so few people read newspapers or watch TV news that the temper tantrum thrown by the press will likely go unnoticed.

Radical Democrats, Dishonest Media and A Naive Newt

Three really incredible stories in the news. Barbara Boxer has put a hold on the Bolton nomination after it was sent to the floor of the Senate for a vote. The Democrats have decided that they will essentially overrule the results of the election by not allowing anything to happen in the country for four years. No judicial nominees will go through and no appointments will go through. Apparently the blocking of everything they disagree with is their idea of Democracy. SOrt of the same as their claim that conservative voices on PBS is against the law.

In another related story, CBS has once again lied to the American people to support claims by the Democrats. This time they have butchered a Ken Starr quote to make it appear that he stated that the Republican bid to end the fillibuster of judges is a radical step and an attack on the judiciary. Of course he said no such thing, in fact his meaning was almost the opposite.

The third story involves Hillary Clinton's attempt to get who she has called an "Arch-Conservative" and a man who many conservatives looked upon as a hero to basically endorse her for President in 2008. Apparently she is doing a very good job. Newt get a clue, she is using you like she has used so many others for political gain in the past. Hillary uses Newt, Bill uses Preesident Bush Sr. We have seen it all before.

The Democrats Go Further and Further Left

Two amazing stories that show clearly the Democrats natural tendancy is toward a socialist government that controls free speech. The first story involves DNC chair Howard Dean endorsing a Socialist candidate for Senate in Vermont.

The second and in some ways more incredible story is that two Democratic Congressman are calling for an investigation into the hiring practices of PBS. WHy? Because they recently hired conservative voices, which the Democrats say might be illegal. Conservative voices on PBS are illegal? The Democrats constantly cry that Republicans threaten free speech. Yet the Democrats want to regulate political speech on the internet, re-enact the Fairness Doctrine and have now claimed that it is illegal to hire conservative voices on PBS.

This is a developing story on Drudge.

President Bush In Georgia

I enjoy reading about and posting on the President's trips to Eastern European countries more than most other events. Most Eastern Europeans, unlike their counterparts on the other side of the continent, understand and appreciate the role America plays in keeping them free. They understand the strength it takes for a leader to fight the naysayers and lead people, through force or diplomacy, to greater freedom. Unlike the average American college student, young people in Eastern Europe appreciate the sacrifice it takes to become and remain a free peoples. The countries and the people of Eastern Europe will be among our greatest allies in the future, and we will owe their allegiance to great men like Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush.

More here.

It remains a truism that those who yearn for freedom continue to look to AMerica for guideance and hope, despite what the opposition party in this country might say.

The Anti-Choice Party

The Democrats often describe themselves as the party of choice, it has been their mantra for decades. They use the “choice” argument in an attempt to convince potential voters that they will free them from the shackles of the right wing fascists that make up the Republican Party. But the fact of the matter is time and time again, Democrats prove themselves to be the party of ever increasing government control, thus limiting the choice of average Americans. Are they pro choice on schools? No, they oppose vouchers which would give many parents the choice to remove their children from failing public schools. Are they pro-choice on guns? No, they in most cases oppose the right to bear arms, thus eliminating the choice to own a weapon. Are they pro-choice on Social Security? No, they oppose private accounts which would give younger workers the choice to open and maintain accounts with a small percentage of the money paid to Social Security. Are they pro-choice on smoking? No, Clinton started the war on tobacco which has now resulted in business being forced to eliminate smoking in their establishments. A private business owner no longer has the choice to allow smoking in a business he has invested his money and time in. Are they pro-choice in hiring practices? No, they have passed laws in state after state dictating who a manager can and can’t employee. If a person owns a business and a male employee decides that he will dress in women’s clothing and wear make-up, an employer cannot fire him, no matter the effect on his business. Are they pro-choice on the definition of marriage? No. State after state has voted down redefining marriage, yet the Democrats have rammed the issue through state courts and federal courts, in many cases overturning the choice of the majority with the opinions of a few.

On issue after issue the Democrats oppose you having any choice in your life. They rail against the Patriot Act because of the specter of government intrusion is private lives, yet they pass law after law, file lawsuit after lawsuit and oppose bill after bill that would take the government out of a person’s life. The only topic on which they are pro-choice is abortion. But the reality is that they are actually pro-abortion, not pro-choice. In Colorado they passed a bill that would effectively force all hospitals to provide abortion information to victims of rape, no matter the beliefs of the hospital. A Catholic hospital, although opposed to abortion, would be forced to give the patient the information on abortion no matter the fact that the founding principles of the hospital oppose abortion. The bill does not, of course, force the hospitals to provide information on other options such as adoption. The Republican Governor vetoed the bill, but it looks as if the veto will be overturned by the newly elected Democratic Senate and Congress. (Both elected by major hyper-donators from around the country that targeted the state). The Democratic State Senate in the state has also passed a smoking ban for every establishment in Denver. The Republicans managed to rewrite the bill to include only restaurants, thus saving decades old bars and Cigar bars from the ban, but the Democrats have now forced them back under the law.

The Democratic Party left unchecked would transform this country into a socialist state where every “choice” in a persons life would be made by the government. They are the anti-choice party.
