News Item: Bush “Just Won’t Listen” to Anything Blair Has To Say
Editor Fareed Zakaria ripped into Donald Rumsfeld this morning on ABC This Week. Watch it:
[If I were running against conservatives,] I would make up a campaign commercial almost entirely of Donald Rumsfeld press conferences, because the man is looking I mean, it not just that he seems like a bad Secretary of [Defense]. He seems literally in a parallel universe and slightly deranged. If you listen to what he said last week about Iraq, he is living in a different world, not a different country.
Last month the 9/11 Truth Movement held a seminar here in Los Angeles, in which they talked about what really happened on that day. In attendence was Charlie Sheen, and Alex Jones from Infowars.com Winter Patriot talks about it in Bradblog
They are sorry they killed 34 Children, and 56 civilians total, but hey, that is where a rocket was lauched that landed harmessly, except for a couple of rabbits in an open field. You kill 2 Israeli Rabbits they kill 34 Children, this is the Israeli idea of a fair trade off.
QANA, Lebanon - Israeli missiles hit several buildings in a southern Lebanon village as people slept Sunday, killing at least 56, most of them children, in the deadliest attack in 19 days of fighting.
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert expressed “great sorrow” for the airstrikes but blamed Hezbollah guerrillas for using the area to launch rockets at Israel, and said he would not halt the army’s operation.
The Lebanese Red Cross said the airstrike in Qana, in which at least 34 children were killed, pushed the overall Lebanese death toll to more than 500. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice postponed a visit to Lebanon in a setback for diplomatic efforts to end hostilities.
Of course Condi couldn’t do anything to help end the hostilities, because she (and bush) don’t want the hostilities to end. All War All the Time, and they all get rich.
4 More Marines, along with 2 “Militants”, and 2 civilians were killed yesterday in the never ending war of Bush. In other news The U.S. also killed 20 “Suspected” Taliban Agents in Afghanistan. As before, why bother capturing these “suspected” Taliban agents, and finding out if they are, and maybe getting some Information out of them. No, just kill them all.
Heeey The New York Times finally gets one right. They are backing the guy who is against the war that they helped start, by having their Bush shill Judith Miller lie, lie, lie about WMD’s About time you did something to help stop the tens of thousands of deaths you are partially responsible for.
Earlier this year, Senator Joseph Liebermanâ€™s seat seemed so secure that â€” legend has it â€” some people at the Republican nominating convention in Connecticut started making bleating noises when the party picked a presumed sacrificial lamb to run against the three-term senator, who has been a fixture in Connecticut politics for more than 35 years.
But Mr. Lieberman is now in a tough Democratic primary against a little-known challenger, Ned Lamont. The race has taken on a national character. Mr. Liebermanâ€™s friends see it as an attempt by hysterical antiwar bloggers to oust a giant of the Senate for the crime of bipartisanship. Lamont backers â€” most of whom seem more passionate about being Lieberman opponents â€” say that as one of the staunchest supporters of the Iraq war, Mr. Lieberman has betrayed his party by cozying up to President Bush….
But this race is not about rÃ©sumÃ©s. The United States is at a critical point in its history, and Mr. Lieberman has chosen a controversial role to play. The voters in Connecticut will have to judge whether it is the right one….
And there is a reason that while other Democrats supported the war, he has become the only target. In his effort to appear above the partisan fray, he has become one of the Bush administrationâ€™s most useful allies as the president tries to turn the war on terror into an excuse for radical changes in how this country operates….
This assault on pro-war democratic candidates by Anti-War Democrats will not be the last.
If Lieberman loses his primary it will be sending a message to other democrats who support the war. (I’m looking at you Hilary) That if you don’t start acting like a democrat, they you can go join the GOP. I read a story the other day that said the only reason Bill Clinton campainged for Lieberman is becuase it would cost him republican votes. Many Rebublicans like Lieberman (and why not) and would have voted for him, but now they won’t because they could NEVER vote for someone that Bill Clinton was for. Great work Bill. He’s a political genius
Bush says Israel has the right to defend itself, even it that means going into another country and killing civilians….
WASHINGTON - The Bush administration on Sunday urged Israelis to avoid civilian casualties in the fighting in Lebanon and expressed sorrow about the deaths of at least 56 civilians in a village in southern Lebanon.
But White House spokesman Blair Jones reaffirmed the administration’s insistence on reaching a sustainable cease-fire.
“We extend our condolences to the families of the Qana victims and to all the people of Lebanon,” Jones said. “This was a terrible and tragic incident.
But don’t worry Israel, we will continue to turn our backs on whatever atrocities you feel like committing. We will continue to allow you to rule our political process while we send you Billions of dollars a year in US Citizens Tax money. Don’t worry, its all cool.
Did you ever hear the phrase “You can’t argue with a sick mind” Here is why we are ruled by the simpleminded in this country. When a pastor gets up and trys to preach peace over war, tries to preach that The Church should stay out of politics, refuses to endorse republican candidates during his sermons, You know reasonable things like that. When the pastor of the large megachurces in rural towns does these things the congregants get up and leave and never come back.
The requests came from church members and visitors alike: Would he please announce a rally against gay marriage during services? Would he introduce a politician from the pulpit? Could members set up a table in the lobby promoting their anti-abortion work? Would the church distribute â€œvotersâ€™ guidesâ€ that all but endorsed Republican candidates? And with the country at war, please couldnâ€™t the church hang an American flag in the sanctuary?
After refusing each time, Mr. Boyd finally became fed up, he said. Before the last presidential election, he preached six sermons called â€œThe Cross and the Swordâ€ in which he said the church should steer clear of politics, give up moralizing on sexual issues, stop claiming the United States as a â€œChristian nationâ€ and stop glorifying American military campaigns.
â€œWhen the church wins the culture wars, it inevitably loses,â€ Mr. Boyd preached. â€œWhen it conquers the world, it becomes the world. When you put your trust in the sword, you lose the cross.â€
Mr. Boyd says he is no liberal. He is opposed to abortion and thinks homosexuality is not Godâ€™s ideal. The response from his congregation at Woodland Hills Church here in suburban St. Paul — packed mostly with politically and theologically conservative, middle-class evangelicals — was passionate. Some members walked out of a sermon and never returned. By the time the dust had settled, Woodland Hills, which Mr. Boyd founded in 1992, had lost about 1,000 of its 5,000 members.
H.L.s Take Well thats only 1 out of 5, which isn’t that bad, you have to figure 20% of any group are going to be non thinking trolls, but you know that the percentage of people in the church who disagree with the pastor but not enough to get up and leave must be more like 60%. If it was any less then that Bush would not be President today.
