Due to Presidential politics, former Mayor Rudy Giuliani is trying to portray himself as something different than he really is. Most notably, he praised the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the partial-birth abortion ban.
However, in the past he supported the vile practice and said the choice should ultimately be left to the woman, as it “affected her perhaps more than anyone else”. No, Rudy…it affects the baby more than anyone else! The woman can go on with her life, while the baby is DEAD!
Such hypocrisy is going to cause a lot of conservatives to look at their support for the guy and quit their support for him in droves, switching to Mitt Romney, John McCain or Fred Thompson (should he decide to run).
I am not supporting Giuliani for the Republican nomination, and this two-faced hypocrisy pretty much makes that decision look more wise than it already was.
Here’s a follow-up on the New Jersey Governor. It turns out that the SUV that he was traveling in was going 91 mph in a 65 mph zone. Yep…that’s right! The guy had his driver SPEED! Now, naturally I’m sympathetic for his injuries (he’s on a ventilator and a whole bunch of his body is busted up), but I’m less so for the cause of his injury.
Meanwhile, I haven’t heard whether they caught the hit-and-run driver that the GUV SUV hit, but I now believe that driver is not the one at fault. Note the following from the article:
The state trooper-driven sport utility vehicle was in the left lane with its emergency lights flashing when a pickup tried to get out of its way. Instead, it set off a chain reaction that resulted in the crash.
Not even the governor is above the law, and he and his driver ought to be prosecuted for this speeding incident, as much or more as the hit and run driver ought to be.
My condolences to the victims and families of the victims of yesterday’s Virginia Tech Massacre.
I will leave it at that, because commenting on it at this time would be inappropriate.
1.) Hillary (as many of us knew all along) LIED to cover her backside re: her vote for the war. She’s saying she voted for the war because President Bush deceived her, but now it turns out that she received the same briefing as the President did, AND THAT SHE DID NOT READ the resolution herself before voting for it. She is so not worthy to be our President, now and never!
2.) Congress is traveling all over the world, at the expense of you and me. Of course, this furor over this will last only a few days, but they will continue to shaft us with this kind of largess forever. I wish SOMEONE in Congress would get a backbone and crack down on this kind of nonsense, but it seems like the water there dissolves backbones once a person moves there. Shame on them, anyway, even if I can’t do anything else about this!
3.) Queen Christine Gregoire, ruler of Washington state, signed two bills into law recently, one of which I agree with, and one I have mixed feelings about. The one I agree with deals with people who do not choose a party in the primary when they vote. It counts their vote anyway if they choose candidates 100% from one party. The better way is to let people vote for anyone they wish, but at least this new law makes the current system more fair, though most people (like me), think it is a messed up system and should be overhauled completely. The other vote is to permanently enact the intermediate drivers license for drivers who turn 16. I’ve given this one a lot of thought, and I have to disagree with her and the other nannies leading our state. If a 16-year-old is qualified to drive, then they should be able to drive with all their rights in place.
4.) The controversy over whether a new stadium for the Sonics should be built in Renton isn’t going the way it should. Queen Christine is trying to gauge the support for the new stadium from the House and Senate. She should rather gauge the support from the TAXPAYING PUBLIC from the entire state. These lawmakers want to pay for a new stadium for a private…PRIVATE…organization using OUR MONEY. The vast majority of people in this state won’t support that, so that’s why Her Majesty is avoiding us.
Jon Corzine, governor of New Jersey, was injured in a hit-and-run accident yesterday while going to meet with ousted-talk radio host Don Imus. I looked up the seat belt laws for his state, and he was NOT required to be wearing a seat belt (having been in the back seat of an SUV), even though common sense dictates otherwise.
At first, I thought he only had a broken leg, but now it’s clear he’s had extensive injuries requiring surgery. According to one story,
“The governor’s femur bone was broken in two places, and it protruded through his skin. He also suffered a broken sternum, 12 broken ribs, a head laceration and a minor fracture on a lower vertebra, according to doctors at Cooper University Hospital in Camden, where he was flown by helicopter after the crash.”
Now, Jon Corzine is a Democrat whom I very likely disagree with on most points, but I hope he experiences a speedy recovery and get back to his job as soon as possible.
1.) Opio Sokoni
2.) Malik Shabazz (Black Panther leader)
These guys know exactly what they are doing. They do not care for the truth. They only care about spreading as much racial hatred as possible.
Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton need to work twice as hard to catch up to these guys!
*** UPDATE ***
Quoting JA6601 on Hot Air’s blog:
2005 US Dept of Justice Crime Statistics Report (published Dec 2006)
Just a couple exerpts to correct some of Shabazz’s LIES.
Race of Offender – Rape/Sexual Assault
32.8% – White
48.5% – Black
15.4% – Other
3.2% – Unknown (offender not caught or ID’d)
73% of Violent Crimes against a Black are caused by a Black Offender
80% of Robberies against a Black are caused by a Black Offender
72% of Assualts against a Black are caused by a Black Offender
Check out this video on Nancy Pelosi’s “visit” to Syria. I guess the left is freaking out about it, too!!! (according to Mary Katherine Ham, poster of this video). Good! Truth makes them uncomfortable.
For those of you who don’t think “Nasty” Nancy Pelosi shouldn’t be prosecuted under the Logan Act, read these two articles:
1.) First, this one from Barry Farber
Excerpt from this article:
If you actually say that, however, you’re saying to him, “Look. You’re smart enough to argue immigration and higher taxes and voting rights for released felons but you’re just not smart enough to understand the dangers of ‘just talking’!”
That makes you an elitist. And elitists lose. Elitists may command the respect of the European peasantry but not of the American Common Man.
2.) Next, this one from Geoff Metcalf
Excerpts from this article:
Many are comparing Nancy Pelosi to Neville Chamberlain, the infamous British appeaser. The comparison frankly does a disservice to Chamberlain.
Violation of the Logan Act is a felony, punishable with imprisonment up to three years. It is poorly written (probably intentionally) and is way broad in it’s stated purpose of addressing attempts of any U.S. citizen trying to conduct foreign relations without authority.
As far as I can find, there is no record of any prosecutions or convictions under the Logan Act . . . that is too bad.
Pelosi isn’t the first to violate the letter and intent of the Logan Act. However, if ever anyone qualified for having personified a Logan Act violation; for sure it is Nasty Nancy.
American power means freedom for America and others.
Anything that militates against that power is a joy to Naziism, communism, or terrorism, depending on which decade we’re talking about.
We hardly have time or room to deal with that ridiculous Muslim-looking scarf Ms. Pelosi wrapped around her Italian-American Roman Catholic head. That scarf, the symbol of feminine subservience in the Islamic world, sent a separate diseased message of its own.
It said, “I, a free woman from a free country, on this visit to your retrogressive vassal state, hereby signal that I consider you worthy of emulation.”
There is only one more thing to say: Prosecute! Prosecute! Prosecute!
Well, the democrat-controlled state House and Senate here in Washington gave in to their gay constituents and just passed domestic partnerships for same-sex couples. Queen Christine (the governor) is all set to sign it into law.
Here’s an excerpt from the story:
The bill would create a domestic partnership registry with the state, and would provide enhanced rights for same-sex couples, including hospital visitation, the ability to authorize autopsies and organ donations, and inheritance rights when there is no will.
To be registered, couples would have to be at least 18 years old, share a home, and not be married or in a domestic relationship with someone else. Unmarried, heterosexual senior couples would also be eligible for domestic partnerships if one partner were at least 62.
This is just the next step in granting full rights to gay couples, who really have no idea what marriage is all about. Neither do those legislators, either.
1.) Pelosi’s at it again: Plans a trip to Iran. Prosecute, prosecute, prosecute!
2.) The North Carolina Attorney General’s office may drop the remaining charges against the three Duke University lacrosse players. I say, it’s about time! I would never deny prosecution’s right and responsibility to nail bad guys, but this case was botched up from the beginning. I hope the three accused sue, and I believe they are going to…check here and here.
3.) Rebublicans say there is voter fraud, the Democrats say “the threat is overstated and have opposed voter identification laws, which they say disenfranchise the poor, members of minority groups and the elderly, who are less likely to have photo IDs and are more likely to be Democrats.” I say, why not err on the side of caution and do everything you can to prevent voter fraud?! The Dems want illegal voting because it helps them. They are not interested in maintaining the integrity of our system!
