“For richer, for poorer,…”

By ATWadmin On November 13th, 2006 at 10:16 am

We may have our own little immigration scandals, and some not so little; and sometimes the sordid results of such scandals come to light, but as the saying goes, ‘America always does it better!’

An Arlington, Virginia, District Circuit Court clerk grew suspicious when American citizens arrived, together with their future Ghanaian spouses  while arranging for marriages; when they seemed to be almost perfect strangers! They then returned shortly afterwards, to file for divorce, and the same mistakes kept cropping up in their paperwork!

He alerted police, and after a four-year long investigation, they closed the gate on one of the largest immimigration scams ever uncovered in Washington D.C., logging up an estimated 1,000 fake marriages!

Seems an early, legal arrival from Ghana (someone please tell me why it’s always Ghana, or Nigeria?) who had a real good job paying $112,00.00, got a little greedy and hatched the idea of persuading, with a cash bribe, American citizens to go through the civil marriage system with perfect strangers, mainly Ghanaians naturally (gotta’ keep it in the family), then after some coaching to remember their lines, arrive back a few months later to sue for divorce! The fake marriages are in the process of being purged from the records, and the Ghanaians, all of whom "only wanted to live in America" are being kicked out back to sunny Africa!

The Yankee’s do some things better than us Brits! If this had happened in Britain, they’d be allowed to stay, same as if they’d hijacked a jet from Afghanistan!

 

BUSH TO DESTROY THE BUSH DOCTRINE!

By ATWadmin On November 13th, 2006 at 7:26 am

This one is steaming right down the rail-lines and we may as well confront it now.

fr-james_baker_III.jpgAs you know, President Bush set up the Iraq Study Group under the tutelage of good ol’ boy James Baker and Lee Hamilton. Over the next few weeks, the conclusions of this group will become more clear but we have a fair idea of what it will say….

The proposals reportedly include an approach to Iran and Syria — a policy that Robert Gates, a member of the commission, has argued for. Rarely has a government report been more eagerly awaited than the one being prepared by former secretary of state James Baker and former congressman Lee Hamilton, an Indiana Democrat, about how the U.S. can leave Iraq.

 

Now given that Iran and Syria are both confirmed member of the axis of evil – it’s interesting that Baker and Hamilton are going to recommend sitting down and talking to them.  And what, exactly, will be discussed? This is Bush preparing to discard his own doctrine under the cover provided by this Report from Baker and Hamilton. The consequences will be severe – first and most importantly for the Iraqi people we will betray, but also for the GOP base – which was wanting VICTORY and is now being offered DEFEAT.

SYRIA APPLAUDS PELOSI….

By ATWadmin On November 10th, 2006 at 8:06 pm

Following on from Iranian congratulations, Syria has rushed to offer it’s sincere thanks to the US electorate…

"The outcome of the theses elections is a genuine punishment from the American people to President Bush’s administration that staged a war on Iraq because of incorrect and inaccurate stimulations," Syrian "Information Minister" Dr Mohsen Bilal said in an interview with al-Jazeera, according to the official Syrian news agency SANA. "Therefore the U.S. and British forces are in a mess there now," 

Bilal noted that incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi opposes the war in Iraq.

"This lady has made the word of the American people audible. And this is very comfortable."

Well, if IRAN and SYRIA are comfortable, I’m feeling pretty relaxed – how about you? Wonder how comfortable Israel is feeling? The vultures circle…

BYE BYE BOLTON….

By ATWadmin On November 10th, 2006 at 1:04 pm

john-bolton-un-bg.jpgI am saddened to read that John Bolton is due to be the next casualty of the Democrat victory. it’s an immense shame since he is an excellent Envoy who was confronting the corrupt United Nations. Responsibility for this lies entirely with the timid Bush, who lacked the guts to force through Bolton’s nomination when he had the chance and now, thanks to a REPUBLICAN Senator – Lincoln Chafee – Bolton will fall. Why does the GOP tolerate RINO’s like Chafee? Where has been the discipline and leadership on this vital nomination?

First Rumsfeld, now Bolton – the price of Bush hesitancy is very high. I’m sure Kofi Annan and his pals will be celebrating…

Yes, we all know this is the phrase used by Islamic killers as they commit their acts of vile barbarity.


It’s what Mohammad Atta shouted as he crashed into the Twin Towers, it’s what Zarqawi roared when he beheaded innocents in Iraq. And it’s what supporters of Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison screamed at his victory celebration.

A GOOD DAY TO BE AN AMERICAN CONSERVATIVE…

By ATWadmin On November 9th, 2006 at 11:30 am

swaraaj-American-Eagle-and-Flag-II-Print-C10055018-small.jpgI wanted to offer my congratulations to the US Democrats, who have now won both House and Senate, and whose candidates have pulverised the Republican Party across the United States.

Yes, I know I was grumpy about it yesterday but hey – I’m made of flesh and blood and I react like everyone else does when confronted with what was…unwelcome news! But I have calmed down. Honest.

You see, on reflection, yesterday turned out to be a GOOD day to be a Conservative in the USA. I say that because as other commentators have also been putting on record, the GOP can now renew itself because it HAS to renew itself ….or face President Hillary Clinton in 2008. There is no option to do otherwise.

This is going to be a momentous task and it will need huge change.

Most importantly, Leadership is required. Bush has comprehensively failed in this regard. He has stuttered  but never really started in his second term to give that which the American people want – dynamic articulate and confident leadership.  And his Party has now paid the severest price. Not that Bush is alone in the blame – I believe this must be shared across the current highest echelon within the Party. They have become complacent, smug, unfocused, corrupt…and unworthy.

So the American people were RIGHT to send them the momentous message that hit home yesterday. The American people were RIGHT to reject Bush and his hesitancy on Iraq. The American electorate have done us a favour by stopping the stumbling that has characterised this shambolic second term of the Bush Presidency. And make no mistake about it – the Bush Presidency effectively came to an end last night.  Again, that is good news because he has been going NOWHERE for the past two years and I, like so many others, am sick of it.

So, what can we look forward to?

Well, if 2008 is see revived GOP fortunes, then a Presidential big win by a Republican candidate is key. I favour Rudy Giuliani at this point. I believe that he would trounce Hillary and whilst he is too liberal on some social fronts for my liking, he IS  a man who has shown leadership, and an ability to articulate this when necessary.  That’s what is lacking at the moment and voters sense it. We need the GOP to retain the essence of the Bush doctrine, but make it  MUCH more aggressive and unilaterist, and then sell this to the American people who YEARN to see our troops WIN in Iraq. It’s high time that an all out attack on Big Government was made, and illegal immigration tackled head on by enforcing Borders. It’s also time that the United Nations was taken on – how about having a policy calling for the bozos on the East River to "up shop" and go to France or somewhere that does not cost Americans money? How about supporting Israel when it tackles the Jihadists in Hezbollah? There is SO much that a reinvigorated GOP can do – but it means strengthening core conservative principles, putting forward clear moral values, giving Americans a reason once again to cast their votes FOR the Republican Party.

So, I think a big thank you to the Pelosicrats. And above all, to the US electorate. It’s time for a Republican rising…..cometh the hour…

THE NEW FACE OF AMERICA….

Michelle Malkin calls it the Sheehanisation of America. Watch, listen and draw your own conclusions. This was taken yesterday – note the reaction to Rumsfeld’s resignation…good call, George.

MEET THE WINNERS…

By ATWadmin On November 8th, 2006 at 7:22 pm

I thought it might be useful to point ATW readers to a quick summary of some of those who have WON today, as the Democrats seize power again.

  • Let’s start with Venezuelan thug Hugo Chavez. On hearing the news that the Democrats were back he enthused…

"All this fills us with optimism."

 

I bet it does.

  • A joint statement of Socialist members of the European Parliament called our election results "the beginning of the end of a six-year nightmare for the world" and exults that the Bush administration is "seriously weakened."
  • Suleiman Hadad, a lawmaker for Iran’s terror-supporting client state Syria, happily comments that "President Bush is no longer acceptable worldwide."

ISN’T IT ODD HOW THOSE WHO DESPISE THE UNITED STATES EXULT AT THE DEMOCRAT VICTORY?

D- DAY!

By ATWadmin On November 8th, 2006 at 9:16 am

795151-540816-thumbnail.jpgI see that September 10th people prevailed in the US mid-term elections yesterday.

The Democrats have won control of House and we still await the final results for Senate, but the Dem’s look strong enought there too. This is a return to the time before 9/11 – that era of frivolity- and there will be consequences, with the Jihad MSM loudly proclaiming the "War in Iraq" was a key factor in GOP downfall. Is it too late to save Saddam, I wonder? Can we ask Hillary to put in a request for clemency before it’s too late? 

795151-540821-thumbnail.jpgNancy Pelosi will become Leader of House. Here are a few of her pronouncements for your consideration..

"Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process."

and then…after the Republican Party actually DID something about Saddam….

"The president led us into the Iraq war on the basis of unproven assertions without evidence; he embraced a radical doctrine of pre-emptive war unprecedented in our history; and he failed to build a true international coalition. "

 

I am disappointed that the Defeaticrats have prevailed – as they offer NOTHING. They are void of ideas other than bashing Bush for two more years. I am disappointed that too may Americans have forgotten the lessons of 9/11. I suggest a reminder will be coming their way from a freshly invigorated Islamistan.

But Bush is not beyond criticism here. The past few years have been nothing short of uninspiring. He has favoured Condi and US State, whilst sidelining Rummy and the more robust approach of Cheney. He has been hopeless at dealing with illegal immigration. He has failed to follow Conservative principles in too many areas. And there has been too much corruption in his administration, though you have to seriously wonder if the Dem’s are whiter than white. (See Nancy Pelosi’s endorsement of Alcee Hastings for the position of Chairmanship of the Intelligence Committee. The Democratic House voted to impeach Hastings from his federal judgeship in 1988 for conspiring to extract a $150,000 bribe from convicted criminals in return for lowering their sentences. Now that is all forgotten and he is to hold this key job!)

America is still at war today with the Islamofascists just as it was yesterday. Nothing has changed in that regard. But today, a white flag has been hoisted up the mast-pole and we will watch the response from those who sit in caves and plan our annihilation. Do you think THEY also will celebrate this morning?

The GOP has two years to revive itself, to awaken from the slumber of recent years. I trust that it will find the imagination, the courage and the resolve to win back support that has drained away. The further we get from 9/11, the stronger the siren voices of those who live in 10th Septemberland become. But follow them – and you will crash on the rocks, or something worse….
