WILL THE WOLF SURVIVE?

By ATWadmin On May 16th, 2007 at 8:45 am

I’ve been meaning to comment on the ongoing efforts of the Euro-left and others within the World Bank to get the head of US nominated Bank President Paul Wolfowitz. The latest example of this is played out in The Times this morning with the suggestion that there has been "a shift" in the stance of the White House and this may lead to Wolfowitz having to leave his post, so securing a victory for the Bush -haters. If you want a rather more informed background to this charade being played out in the media – try Christopher Hitchens here.

We know no spectacle so ridiculous," wrote Macaulay about the vilification of Lord Byron, "as the British public in one of its periodical fits of morality."

Change the word "ridiculous" to "contemptible," and the words "British public" to "American (And Euro press..DV) press," and you have some sense of the eagerness for prurience, the readiness for slander, and the utter want of fact-checking that have characterized Paul Wolfowitz and Shaha Riza as if they were not only the equivalent of Byron seducing his half-sister, but as if they were financing their shameless lasciviousness out of the public purse and the begging bowls of the wretched of the earth.

Killing of Intruder Called Justifiable

By ATWadmin On May 15th, 2007 at 9:05 pm

That’s right…social justice.  Lousiana-style.  

From The Times-Picayune:

“A 61-year old Avondale man shot and killed an apparent burglar he said entered his home Sunday night, the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office reported.

Ronnie Wells, 34, Avondale, was killed in the shooting at 297 Capitol Drive shortly after 11 p.m., said Col. John Fortunato, a spokesman for the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Cornelius Sims told deputies that while he and his family were sleeping, he heard loud noises coming from his garage. Sims said he armed himself with a handgun and went to investigate the noises.

When he entered the kitchen, Sims saw a man standing in the shadows, he told deputies. Sims fired several shots at the man, who then fled the home. Wells was found dead by deputies in a side yard near the home.

The shooting has been ruled a justifiable homicide by the Sheriff’s Office, Fortunato said.”

I’ll bet they don’t have much crime in Avondale.

 

rudi hit by foot-in-mouth disease

By ATWadmin On May 12th, 2007 at 10:20 am

rudi%20pointing%20at%20someone%20anyone%20else.jpgI see that GOP front-runner Rudi Giuliani’s run for the pole position at the primaries has been blind-sided by an "own goal" on the baby front!

Once a  firm and committed opponent of "Roe v. Wade" the epochal Supreme Court decision allowing abortion in the United States, he has trimmed both his sails and his stance in an attempt to shore up crumbling support both State- and Nation-wide. He has tried to say what people on both sides of the abortion debate want to hear; in an attempt to mend the greatest number of crumbling fences, but unfortunately, once a politician is seen to prevaricate, or hedge, or do anything alse than come out strongly for or against any particular problem, it’s seen as the kiss of death for that particular politician’s chances. With the arguments over abortion being the American equivalent of the "Third Rail" in political life, Rudi is gonna’ have to do some pretty slick verbal waltzing around this ‘Maypole’, especially if he wishes to remain a viable candidate for President.

Seeing as the firm stance of many Republicans is that anything short of a firm "Nix" on a woman’s right to choose is akin to a statement that ‘anything goes’, our Rudi does seem to have dug his own little hole in the ground. Trouble is, the advice he might be receiving is one of "Stop digging!", but every time he gets within fifty feet of a reporter, out come the questions regarding "Roe.." and almost like a deer frozen in the spotlight, poor Rudi has to say something, and every time, for someone; it’s the wrong thing!

 

US FOREIGN POLICY “LIKE THE THIRD REICH”….

By ATWadmin On May 11th, 2007 at 6:43 am

Did you see that Russian thug-in-chief Vladimir Putin has ratcheted up the anti-American rhetoric that little bit further by  obliquely comparing the foreign policy of the United States to the Third Reich in a speech on Wednesday commemorating the 62nd anniversary of the defeat of Nazi Germany. Putin did not specifically name the United States or NATO but used phrasing similar to that which he has used previously to criticize American foreign policy while making an analogy to Nazi Germany.The comments marked the latest in a series of sharply worded Russian criticisms of the foreign policy of the United States – on Iraq, missile defense, NATO expansion and, broadly, the accusation that the United States has striven to single-handedly dominate world affairs. It strikes me that Putin needs put in his place, and that the ongoing indulgence of Russia in the G8, for example, should cease. I also think that Euro-reliance on Russian gas will end in tears as Putin is demonstrating time and time again that Russia is NO friend of the US, and that it is increasingly characterised as being a tyranny, run by KGB-trained Putin. It’s close links to Iran are also worrying, and this is one bear that needs caged.

Dr. Evil = George Soros

By ATWadmin On May 11th, 2007 at 5:33 am

The  5/9/07 Wall Street Journal article entitled “Axis of Soros”  reports that the  soon-to-be Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, is an “ally” of  George Soros. Unless you are a card carrying member of the far-left, this is not good news.  Soros  believes in a stong centralized international government, correcting the “excesses of self-interest” and  all of the other tenets of the "progressive" far-left.  Soros hearts the nanny state.

George Soros who?   

George Soros became famous when he shorted the English pound in 1992 – he made a BILLION  (!?!) pound profit  and seriously damaged the British economy in the process. Soros is the 80th richest man in the world, a Hungarian Jew and  an anti-semite.  German Nazis took over Hungary when Soros was 13; he survived by pretending that he wasn’t Jewish, disquised as the son of a non-Jewish neighbor.   He studied at the London School of Economics and he made his money trading, primarily hedge funds.

George Soros hates George Bush and he hates America, and  he has  in recent years devoted much of his fortune to bringing down Bush and  to bringing down America.

He gave $23.5 million dollars to  “527” groups (lobbying groups) in order to defeat George Bush in 2004. (Thereby inadvertantly proving that money really isn’t everything.)

Presently, he channels money to Moveon.org,  Center for American Progress, Open Society Institute, Democracy Alliance, Tides Foundation, and Media Matters. All of these groups work to promote the far-left political agenda, to influence the media and to defeat the Republicans.

According to the New York Times, anti-war lobbying groups, spearheaded by Soros’  Moveon.org, have a conference call   EVERY morning with Democratic law makers in Washington D.C.  George Soros has cleverly found a  legal way to buy direct access  and influence in Washington.  

Hyscience.com links to a Fox news report with Bill O’reilly which goes into depth about Soros’s influence in Washington.

The fact that Gordon Brown is an ally of George Soros is not good news for England or America.

Viva La France!

By ATWadmin On May 7th, 2007 at 3:56 pm

Isn’t it funny how often political analysts and pundits are wrong? And isn’t it grand that they were wrong about France? Publius Pundit THinks so:

 

“Whodathunk?

 

After all, isn’t France the country that four years ago was branded ‘cheese-eating surrender monkeys’ for its opposition to the U.S. war in Iraq? Wasn’t France solidly socialist to the bone? Weren’t there a lot of analyses out saying that the French abhorred change, couldn’t lift itself from its cafes, hated globalization and definitely didn’t want a wild man like Sarkozy as president out wrecking the country? It’s just amazing how mistaken so many observers were. There’s a whole different country out there that none of them, neither enemy nor familiar, really seemed to know…

…There’s no doubt Sarko wants change. But he wants it for different reasons than leftists often do. Leftists want to create a New Man. Sarko wants to save France so that it can be France, not turn it into another cookie-cutter Berkeley or Ann Arbor, as has been happening. Sarko’s a flag-waver. He’s extremely passionate and energetic, and he will make a difference. His proposed economic programs to keep France powerful and competitive, will do just that, as French voters read it, because that’s a big issue that resonated.”

 

 

Happy Meal

“Remember "Freedom Fries"?
When France refused to participate in the war against Saddam Hussein in 2003, many Americans were angry with the French, and showed their displeasure by renaming French Fries as "Freedom Fries."

But now with the May 6 election of new French President Nicolas Sarkozy, a leader who is strongly pro-American, the French have once again shown that they are America’s allies, and have reached out their hands to us in friendship.

In that spirit, I recommend that everyone who ever referred to their French Fries as "Freedom Fries" now change the name once again, this time to a more appropriate moniker that shows our appreciation for our long-standing frères the French. Henceforth, I suggest that French Fries be renamed…"

Oxford Union Hearts America!

By ATWadmin On May 3rd, 2007 at 6:58 am

I’m happy to see that historic debating society, the Oxford Union, has rejected a motion stating that “the House regrets the founding of America…”

The motion, expressing the ubiquitous and predictable anti-American bias present throughout Britain, comes as no surprise.

And the hefty dose of  British self-loathing inherent in the statement borders on the pathological.

In an article for the BBC, Matt Frei  recognizes the folly of such self-hate and  sings (reluctant) praises to America:

We Europeans created America and to regret this is to engage in a colossal act of self-denial verging on self-mutilation. We have a stake in its survival and its success and we ought to nurture it, not bring it to its knees or delight in its misfortunes. We can criticise its leaders without regretting its existence.

As a proud American patriot, one not suffering from pathological self-abnegation, I would like to add:  

God Bless America!    And for that matter, God Bless the United Kingdom!

America Beware: The Thief is at the Door

By ATWadmin On May 1st, 2007 at 12:49 pm


Americans, your Christian leaders didn’t know about the HR254 bill when Catch the Fire pastors from Australia, Danny and Danny, came to the U.S. a couple of months ago to warn you. Your leaders gasped in horror as they were informed about this draconian law which would see them put in jail for life for saying something deemed (arbitrarily)to be offensive to, say, a Muslim or a homosexual. Has it gone away? CHECK THIS OUT

The Federal Hate Crimes Bill, H.R. 1592, is headed to the House, a vote is soon expected. This bill poses the greatest threat to our freedom that we have ever witnessed in the history of this nation. This piece of legislation if passed into law will give homosexuals above the law status that will create an atmosphere where homosexuals will able to harass and intimidate those who disagree with their lifestyles, leaving most Americans defenseless against the tyranny of the far fringe left.
Freedom of Speech, and of the Press will be limited under these laws, I expect a great backlash against the homosexual community if this passes, and they start prosecuting people for exercising their Constitutional rights.
We must contact Congress and tell them emphatically NO!
NO! to H.R. 1592, The Federal Hate Crimes Bill

We can’t afford to lose our vigilance now as the noose is tightening. It’s either fight or lose our liberty right here at home.
It’s happening in America and you can be sure it will happen everywhere else.

WHAT IS SADR THAN A DEMOCRAT?

By ATWadmin On April 30th, 2007 at 6:59 am

al sadr.jpgWonder how the eight Democrat US Presidential hopefuls feel about the fact that Shia thug "cleric" Muqtada al-Sadr now quotes them when he attacks President Bush?

Radical Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr launched a strong attack Saturday on President George W. Bush, calling him the “greatest evil” for refusing to withdraw American troops from Iraq. Al-Sadr’s statement was read during a parliament session by his cousin, Liqaa al-Yassin, after the U.S. Congress ordered U.S. troops to begin leaving Iraq by Oct. 1. Bush pledged to veto the measure and neither the House nor the Senate passed the measure with enough votes to override him. “Here are the Democrats calling you to withdraw or even set a timetable and you are not responding,” al-Sadr’s statement said

 

As I have said before, it was a serious calamity to permit this little Shi’ite monster to remain this side of eternity. But now he and the Dem’s have the same objective – TROOPS OUT!
