Bejing Olympics Open To Stunning Ceremony


Here are some stunningly beautiful photo's.

Reagan/Carter -- McCain/Obama -- Nuance As A Default Position Is A Losing Position!

"Russia should immediately and unconditionally cease its military operations and withdraw all forces from sovereign Georgian territory,” McCain said in a statement to reporters shortly after his campaign plane landed in Iowa.

“The consequences of Euro Atlantic stability and security are grave,” he added.

He also called for “a truly independent” international peacekeeping force for South Ossetia, and said the United States should work with the European Union and the OSCE to pressure Russia to halt its military efforts.

McCain has been a sharp critic of the policies of the Russian government headed by Vladimir Putin.

In a statement sent to reporters, Barack Obama called for an end to the violence, but stopped short of assigning blame, or making strong demands on Moscow. “I strongly condemn the outbreak of violence in Georgia, and urge an immediate end to armed conflict," he said.

"Now is the time for Georgia and Russia to show restraint, and to avoid an escalation to full scale war.
Georgia’s territorial integrity must be respected. All sides should enter into direct talks on behalf of stability in Georgia, and the United States, the United Nations Security Council, and the international community should fully support a peaceful resolution to this crisis.”

Russia sent troops into the region Friday to defend South Ossetia from Georgian troops battling separatist forces there.

Edwards Admits Affair -- Stabs Media And Wife In The Back -- Media Forced To Finally Cover Story!

Former Sen. John Edwards has admitted having an extramarital affair in 2006. In a written statement today, the former Democratic presidential candidate said he "made a serious error in judgment and conducted myself in a way that was disloyal to my family and to my core beliefs." 
National Enquirer was right and the media covered it up, until they couldn't any longer.   This was really a disgraceful display by the media.

UpdateHot Air -- David Shuster: You know who else deserves an apology from Edwards? The media
After all they did to suppress the story for him, it’s really the least he can do. Tip via TV Newser, which neglects to mention the punchline here: Upon pronouncing the media a hapless victim whose blind trust was so cruelly exploited by Edwards’s aides, Shuster then turned around and pulled rank on the one press outfit that actually bothered to do some reporting. This one’s for you, Kaus.

If David Schuster knows politics more then all the people at MSNBC then they are really in trouble!

Pump Up Your Tires, Save The Planet -- How 'Bout You Try Doing What Americans Want For A Change?

RASMUSSEN: "Americans overwhelmingly believe there is an urgent national need to find new sources of energy, and this need is more important that reducing current energy usage, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. With energy issues taking center stage in the presidential campaign, 81% of Americans see development of new energy sources as an urgent priority. Only 9% disagree. For nearly two-thirds (65%), finding new sources of energy is more important that reducing the amount of energy Americans now consume. Twenty-eight percent (28%) think reducing current usage is more important."

Russia Invades Breakaway Georgian Region -- Georgia Says It Is At War!

Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili said today his country is under "continuous Russian bombardments" and that Russian tanks are moving in. He accused Russia of targeting civilian populations as tensions over the breakaway Georgian region of South Ossetia appeared to boil over into full-blown conflict.

Was Blair The First Obama Supporter In 1975 Or Are Obama-maniacs Saying 'Suck It'?

(I)f a Los Angeles creative agency gets its way, Sen. Barack Obama will see fans meet him with his own salute like the one above. "Our goal is to see a crowd of 75,000 people at Obama's nomination speech holding their hands above their heads, fingers laced together in support of a new direction for this country, a renewed hope, and acceptance of responsibility for our future," says Rick Husong,
Isn't that is just cult creepy and reminiscent of bad things in history?

That was a nasty gesture when I was in high school -- saying to the person it was aimed at to suck it! (As it is shown it would be as if someone up front were telling someone behind them to suck it).

However, I did find what could be one of the first photo's of Obama's O' sign from way back in 1975!  Former Prime Minister Tony Blair at college! 

Okay, maybe both Blair and Obama are just saying "Suck It," but I believe it is all for Obama man!

What'd I miss?

Everything you need to know to stay informed each day in 5 minutes or less!  Read your regular news and include this and you will be able to participate in most any current events discussion.
Governor Blagojevich says he is considering speed cameras on the interstates to ticket speeders.  The money is to be used to assist crime fighting measures in Chicago.  Interestingly enough just yesterday I saw a photo showing a speed camera ticket of a car being towed for service over the speed limit.  I am fundamentally opposed to traffic cameras of any kind.

A man was arrested for planning to assassinate Barack Obama.  He had also made threats against President Bush but you wouldn't see that in CNN's report.

In Los Angeles there is a proposal to require any big box home-improvement stores to build a heated and cooled shelter, and toilet, for day laborers who often hang looking for work.

"Suddenly being green is not cool any more -- As the credit crunch bites, environmental policies are being ditched. But oddly we are doing better at saving the planet."

A seven year old gets it -- tells Michelle Obama we should finish what we started in Iraq. Barack, there is your hope for America.


"You Read it Here First: We Won the War"

 Mathew Sheffield reported today that Liberals are more than 12 times likely to use profanity than conservatives on the Web.

"Islamic Group Warns Muslims to Keep Children Away From Olympics (Video) -- 'Do not stay on the same bus, on the same train, on the same plane, in the same buildings, or any place the Chinese are.;"

Senate Republicans Getting Into The Act -- Demand Harry Reid Allow A Vote On Energy Plan!

House Republicans have attracted most of the attention the last week in the rebellion that erupted after Nancy Pelosi adjourned the session without taking a vote on drilling.  Their colleagues in the upper chamber want to press the case as well.  Fifteen Republican Senators have a new video demanding that Harry Reid allow debate and a vote on a “balanced energy plan”

Hot Air -- Video: Senate GOP calls for “balanced energy plan”

House Republicans Continue Protest Fighting For Energy Relief For Americans!

“Republicans will not rest until we have an honest, up-or-down vote on the American Energy Act,” Boehner wrote in the memo written by Republican leaders. “To that end, we request that you contact the Whip’s Office and indicate any time you may have available to come to Capitol in the coming weeks. We specifically request that you indicate your availability for any days during the next two weeks, August 11th through 22nd, as soon as possible.”

Republicans began their protest on Friday, as the House went into its August recess. Through a handful of members, Republicans have been able to continue rounds of speeches on the House floor ever since.

The plan now seems to be to continue taking to the House floor every weekday until at least the start of the Democratic Convention, which kicks off on Aug. 25.
I still don't know if Congressman Manzullo stayed in DC or came home, but he did update his campaignM site with nice links to reports on this strong Republican reaction to a do nothing party that would rather you and I suffer just so they can get elected.

Several Republican members of Congress are asking constituents to send in their gas receipts, which will be presented to the vacationing Democrat leadership see the full report at Michelle Malkin.

Move On And The Far Left Really Are Ideologically Suicidal!

A series of new radio advertisements looks like they could backfire, big-time.

The liberal group is up with ads against six House Republicans attacking them for their support of offshore drilling. Problem is: most of the targets represent energy-rich districts where drilling is viewed favorably, to put it mildly.

One target, Rep. Mike Conaway (R-Texas), represents a west Texas district where the discovery of oil in the 1940s created wealth throughout the region, and the energy industry has since dominated the region’s economy.
“We wholeheartedly endorse this colossal waste of funds,” said NRCC spokesman Ken Spain. “Not only is’s anti-drilling position out of step with 70 percent of Americans, but a member like Mike Conaway who represents the Texas oil patch will probably see his approval rating surge upward as a result of these ads."
Politico -- The Scorecard

Why Are You Running For President Mr. Obama? Well, America Is No Longer What It Once Was...

“America is …, uh, is no longer, uh … what it could be, what it once was. And I say to myself, I don’t want that future for my children.”

Here he is in 2004 discussing his book:
"The Basic Outline of the government we possess and our civic religion as a people is such that potentially at least, we could create a society that is a model for the world, it isn't right now."

I wonder when he was proud of America, remember his wife is finally proud for the first time.  How about pre Civil War?  How about when schools and buses were segregated?

Someone needs to ask this man that question because I have done so to liberals who make this same claim and they cannot point out a time that meets their standards!  I addressed this in 2004 and came to the conclusion on Kerry that:
This man is anti-American and so is his party! Here is the key - they don't think they are anti-American because their idea of America is their utopian dream - not the reality of where America is (and the American people are)! In other words - they are in favor of what they want America to be - but they are definitely against everything America is currently. This is where they have been since the 60's!
This is how they can, with a straight face, demand apologies from anyone who would dare to question their patriotism. It is also why this is such a sensitive issue for them - see deep down they understand that this is really an un-American position.

Because of their hatred for the REAL America they would trust a murdering dictator over a Republican President. They would turn over control of our economy, our security, and our health to an international body that has a history of support for dictators and genocide but rabid hatred for democracies like Israel and America.

They are willing to sacrifice soldiers, civilians, national reputation, and national security in order to bring America down a peg or two because this is the only way they think they can accomplish their return to power. They believe that with that power they can remake the world in their Utopian image. 
Where on earth does this come from, this demand for utopia? This failure to accept the reality of where we are today?

I think it can be traced to this a dramatic perversion of this quote from the closest thing to a God the left has:

There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask why... I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?
Robert F. Kennedy
Now, just as Islam has been perverted by terrorists (who demand the destruction of civilization and the murdering of innocents as a means of accomplishing their conversion of the world) I believe this statement by RFK was also twisted from it's original meaning. A meaning that hearkened back to his brother John F. Kennedy where he admonished us:
And so, my fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.
John F. Kennedy
Instead of hunkering down and changing the world for the better the left has decided that there is nothing worth salvaging and that we must abandon all that is good about America and start from scratch. With America in a subservient position their goals will have been accomplished. These goals, according to the Lie-N-Hype'ers, are noble and patriotic!

Hot Air has a copy of Rush Limbaugh's response today:
LIMBAUGH: Alright, now here’s he’s brought it home. He had trashed his country in Germany, he has seen the result of that in his plummeting poll numbers. And now he does it again in Elkhart, IN. A 7 year old little girl. You’re running for President Sen. Obama, a little girl asks you a question, “Why did you start running for President?”

It’s a 7 year old Senator. Ya tell her because you love the country. You tell her because this is the greatest place on Earth. That we’ve got challenges, but you want to help the country through it. You don’t tell a 7 year old that her country isn’t what it once was. You do not lie to 7 year olds and tell them that your country sucks. You just don’t do it Senator.

America’s no longer what it could be? What it once was? How the Hell would you know Sir? Your experience has only been in one part of America. Elite, leftist academia.
Ace responded this way:
Unfortunately for Obama America has a fairly long history of rejecting African America, arrogant and liberal candidates who run down their country. Just ask Jimmy Carter how he enjoyed his second term or Walter Mondale, Michale Dukakis and John Kerry how they liked being President at all.
