Update: Michelle has a link to the indictment.

via Michelle Malkin: remember that Mohamed hasn’t been in the US very long – since January, I believe. I’m adding some additional info below. Mohammed was also brought into the mix by the as yet un-identified individual said to have returned to Canada right...

Around We Go

Tony Snow set to go on September 14 – not an unexpected development.

Tommy Franks as a VP? Interesting.

I agree, historians will be much more kind to Bush than the media has been.

Gift Just Keeps On Giving

New York City’s Department of Education gave its supervisors cell phones with a lot of neat features … including GPS. Then they used the GPS module to see if they were at work when stamped time cards purportedly documented they were working. A judge has recommended firing one guy who was...

Now Here’s A Man Bites Dog Story

August 31, 2007

Well, it’s actually more of a police chief bites two male patrolmen story – after they got drunk and passed out. Is there a shortage of public restrooms in this part of Texas? Meanwhile, Senator Craig may be resigning today.

ALTON — Alton Police Chief Jose Luis Vela was suspended Thursday after...

Politics Is Important, Right?

August 31, 2007
By

I imagine many political bloggers, including me, occasionally tell themselves they follow politics because it matters – it’s substantive and important in the grand scheme, somehow.

Then I click over to Memeorandum which has been all Senator Craig all the time for two days, along with Feministing talking about Obama,...

Thompson To Announce He’ll Announce?

By

I don’t know, folks. If Fred has anymore hitch in his git along, he’s going to have to hitch a ride back to Tennessee and git any hope of becoming President out of his head. But there is still time. What’s going to matter is what happens right out of the...

Playing Politics With Terrorism And War

August 30, 2007
By

While Hillary Clinton continues to take some flak for playing politics with terrorism, will there be a sound about the obvious playing of politics concerning war, given these quotes below from a WaPo article on the leaking of a draft GAO report designed to undermine support for the war in...

Hey, It’s Only Art, Right?

h/t Instapundit — I’m not really down with Osama being portrayed as any religious figure, let alone Jesus. But if it’s all about sparking debate, how about my entry which starts the conversation with Osama as John the Baptist, instead.

Last night, the Uniting Church minister who chairs the Blake Society...

Great News, I’m Going To Stop Raping Your Wife!

August 29, 2007
By

Pardon the unreal politik here, but if someone tells their army to stand down from killing you for a rest, isn’t it an admission that they were doing that very thing, and as good a reason as any to wax their butt? Actually, this has to be a desperation play by...

Fund-raising Vets For Truth?

August 29, 2007
By

But will it be enough to sink Hillary?

In the following timeline, we will see apparent evidence of Hillary Clinton’s Senate campaign understating over $750,000 in contributions to her 2000 Senate campaign, from one Peter Paul.

Evidently, Hillary’s campaign initially denied even knowing Peter Paul, and then later, admitted meeting him but...

Suggestions Anyone?

August 29, 2007
By

I hope to get back to blogging regularly once we get past August. In the meantime, I’m looking into a new lap top and a video recorder for my blogging, if anyone has any thoughts.

No thoughts? Feel free to hit the tip jar, this stuff costs! Whew! ; )

Anyway, if things...

Sorry Traveling

August 27, 2007

Sorry, no posts for a bit – doing some traveling and looking at some very interesting potential plans for things, including me and the blog. I don’t have my PC available and won’t try to blog without my bookmarks and such – but you can take a look at Memeorandum.

A New Low: MSM Gets All Dhimmi-toonish

August 26, 2007
By

Sad doesn’t come close to being the appropriate word to characterize the behavior of our allegedly freedom loving media this time out. It seems it doesn’t need a Muslim government, or sharia law to cause it to cower in the face of any potential threat from radical Islamists.

Note to...

The War Against Al Qaeda

August 25, 2007
By

A long but required read in Newsweek regarding Bin Laden, the Tribal Areas and our general efforts in that regard. Interesting that on pages two and three it mostly asserts that it was General Tommy Franks who decided to not put more forces on the ground in and around Tora...

Now HuffPo Has A Real Problem

August 25, 2007

So, I’m reading this silliness about Pace removing Bush as Commander in Chief:

General Pace – you have the power to fulfill your responsibility to protect the troops under your command. Indeed you have an obligation to do so.

You can relieve the President of his command.

Not of his Presidency. But of his...

From DailyKos on January 4, 2006:

Draft James Webb Effort Heating Up!

I just received the following e-mail from "Draft James Webb." The bottom line is that it looks like the Draft James Webb effort is really starting to heat up in the cold early days of 2006.

Whoops on the knox vs nash bit! But the winner is!   Congrats Bill.

Not Really, Allah

August 24, 2007

Allah is usually spot on when he writes headlines for HotAir’s We Pick, You Click news items, but I think he missed the point on this one: NJ Cops Already Looking for excuses not to comply with state AG’s immigration order.

It links to a New York Times piece. I saved the...
