Closet Democrat Ann Coulter's Endorsement Of Hillary Clinton For President

Why has Ann Coulter endorsed Hillary Clinton for President tonight on Hannity & Colmes ?

While Barack Obama is the most Liberal member in the Senate, Hillary Clinton is not far behind, according to the National Journal 2007 Voting Ratings seen below.

Both Senator's have very similar voting records of the 267 bills they voted on in 2007 they only differed 10 times.

Two of a kind, many people see both Hillary & Ann as divisive figures---Birds of a feather flock together.

Update: Michael Savage Case Against CAIR

Islamic apologists are now running all over the place like Chicken's with their heads cut off subsequent to an Answer and a Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings, pursuant to Rule 12(C) Federal Rules of Civil Procedure that has now been filed in the matter under the caption of Michael Savage v. CAIR, et. al. Case No. CV 07 06076, USDC, N.D. California.

A little background, in November CAIR called on companies that advertised on the Savage Nation to express their outrage about Michael Savage and encourage advertisers to drop their sponsorship of his show in an effort to stifle free speech. Likewise CAIR on its website began running excerpts of his show, repackaging his comments was deliberately designed to obscure the specific message conveyed by Michael Savage. A law suit was filed against CAIR the apologist for Islamic Jihad and now their minions including the Flaming Lying Lunatic are all scurrying around saying, "see here, see here, look, look the Savage's case is frivolous and baseless."

Any Attorney that is worth their weight in salt defending a law suit will tell you that a Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings is very routine and this was anticipated.

The Standard of Review by Federal Courts in considering a 12(C) Motion is a fairly restrictive standard and to obtain a judgment on the pleadings, the moving party must establish that no material issue of fact exists and that it is entitled to judgment as a matter of law. Likewise the Court must view the facts presented in the pleadings in the light most favorable to the non-moving party.

For all of the minions falling all over themselves saying "see here, see here, look, look" they are reading way too much into a standard pre-trial motion and need to take a step back and take a breath, for this superfluous motion by CAIR will more than likely be Denied, as many others before.

So Long Barry Obama

Barry's lack luster performance in Florida, receiving only 33% of the establishment vote demonstrates his weakness as a Candidate for the Democratic Nomination. His support from voters under 30 whom Barry worked hard to recruit amounted to 10% His overall weakness as a viable candidate and his base of support should show voters that his likelihood to capture the nomination of the Democratic party is doubtful. Among Hispanic voters Clinton claimed 60% according to her web site.

Jewish voters do not trust him despite what he may say for his support for Israel, it could be that his association with Dr. Jeremiah Wright, minister of his church which honored Louis Farrakahn may have something to do with this? 53% of the Jewish vote went to Clinton while Obama received only 26%

Meanwhile Senator Obama received 80% of the African American vote in South Carolina, African Americans represent just over 50% of the population which calculates into only about 40% of the Democratic vote. The establishment Democratic base is not behind Senator Obama and to win an election, the first term Senator from Illinois must pull in more than just a majority of the African American vote.

Even though Senator Obama is doing remarkably well with Democratic African Americans, he still is only pandering to his small base and he must begin to appeal to the Democratic establishment if he expects to do well on Super Tuesday.

Senator Obama who only entered national politics but a few years ago now as a Junior Senator from Illinois, his time as a Illinois State Legislator and a Civil Rights Attorney, never prepared him for the real challenges as a world leader.

Priding his Liberalism which may help him to win elections in Illinois, will not resonate well with the overall General Electorate in November that consider themselves to be more Conservative and Primary voters are thinking about this when they go to the polls to choose their party candidate.

Democrats need to begin considering this much earlier on in the Primary Season and select a more centrist candidate than a true Liberal that has no real hope of winning in November.

Liberals simply do not do well in General Elections. If history is actually a good teacher, one only needs to step back and take a look how Democrats faired in recent elections.

Hubert Humphrey lost in 1968, George McGovern 1972, Jimmy Carter, 1980, Walter Mondale lost in a land slide to Ronald Reagan in 1984, Michael Dukakis lost in 1988 and John Kerry in 2000

While Super Tuesday may not decide for sure who the Liberal Democrat will be in November, it will likely demonstrate Senator Obama's weakness with the Democratic base.

Likewise whoever is the party favorite for the November elections, the Democrats will once again find themselves coming up short to win the White House in November. Liberal candidates such as Senator's Clinton or Obama can not win a General Election across the country.

Anti-Israel Week At University of Michigan

February 11-15 anti-Semitic organizers at the University of Michigan have planned "Palestine Awareness Week" which will coincide with "Israel Apartheid Week" at college campuses across the country.

The purpose at the events are to demonize Israel while condoning Islamic Jihad, providing a distorted view of the reality on the ground.

Israel does not practice apartheid. Today within Israel while Jews are a majority of the population the Arab population are citizens with full civil rights, voting rights and are represented within the government. Under apartheid South Africa, Black South Africans could not vote and were not deemed to be citizens of the country which they were the majority.

Arabs in the territories are permitted to work and enjoy freedom to attend schools and universities and are running many of their own daily affairs. If Israel was an apartheid state, the Arab minority would not be able to do any of those things.

Saudi Arabia, Iran and many other Islamic countries deny Equal Rights and opportunities to Women---where are the protests against Sharia Law?

Israel is the only free and democratic country in the Middle East, it is totally unfair to put Israel in the same category with odious regimes, ignoring the real abusers of human rights such as Iran which promotes fascism and genocide.

Margaret Truman Dies at 83

Seen here waiting to cast her ballot, Margaret Truman passed away today in Chicago following a brief illness.

The author of 32 books including one of her Mother Bess. In 2005 she authored "The President's House 1800 to Present" and reflected upon her own experiences while in the White House which she called the "Great White never feel at home in the White House...we made as much of a home of it as I think possible."

One night on a dare she slept in the Lincoln Bedroom which is believed to be haunted by the ghost Abraham Lincoln whose Son Willie is said to have died in the room on February 20, 1862---President Truman went searching for a Butler, planning to have him wear a top hat and knock on the door in the middle of the night. Unfortunately he could not locate the tall Butler he was seeking that had already left for the evening. Margaret Truman recalls that she never saw any ghosts the night she slept in the room.

Mary Margaret Truman-Daniel, was born February 17, 1924 and graduated from George Washington University in 1946 In 1949 she pursued a career in Music and had performed as a singer in Carnegie Hall.

Following a scathing review by Washington Post Music Critic Paul Hume that wrote about President Truman's daughter saying, "...can not sing very well." Harry Truman sent the reporter a letter which said, "...I have never met you but if I do you'll need a new nose and plenty of beefsteak and perhaps a supporter below."

In 1953 Margaret Truman moved to NYC and worked for NBC and in 1956 she married Clifton Daniel who was an assistant foreign news editor of the N.Y. Times who later went on to be the managing editor from 1964-1969 he passed away on February 22, 2000

Indicted Democratic Fundraiser Tony Rezko Bond Revoked Ordered Jailed

Tony Rezko who donated thousands of dollars to Democratic Campaigns, was ordered jailed today after it was learned that he accepted $3.5 Million Dollars from an Iraqi Billionaire after claiming that he was broke.

Federal Prosecutors said that Tony Rezko "...played a shell game and misled the Court about his assets..."

The Democratic fund raiser Rezko, was indicted last year for allegedly attempting to collect $6 Million Dollars in kickbacks from government deals and attempting to shakedown a Hollywood Producer for $1.5 Million Dollars in campaign contributions for Governor Blagojevich, D-Illinois

Rezko's trial is scheduled to begin on February 25 on charges of mail fraud, money laundering and attempted extortion---he is charged separately with swindling General Electric Capital Corp. out of $10 Million Dollars in the sale of a pizza restaurant business.

Barack Obama & Tony Rezko have been friends for more than 15 years when $60,000 in campaign contributions were raised for Barack Obama---after Rezko was indicted, Obama donated $11,500 to charity in an attempt to cleanse his soul?

Last week on MSNBC , Hillary Clinton denied knowing Tony Rezko who she called a Slum Lord and accused Barack Obama of having a long relationship with him.

Mitt Romney No New Taxes ???

Never a Tax Oh I mean User Fee that Mitt Romney does not like.

As Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts tax payers seen fees rise on everything from Marriage Licenses, Gun Registrations, Milk Dealer permits, Home Deed Registrations, increased fees on power meter inspections to Blindness Certificates---Oh My!

Now running for President Never a User Fee That I Did Not Like Mitt is promising to do to America what he done to the good people of Massachusetts. As President, Mitt promises to realign government and promises universal health care without raising taxes? Right...

This year the Commonwealth of Massachusetts is expected to exceed the budget for health care by about $245 Million Dollars and next years budget for the health care initiative is expected to balloon to more than $400 Million Dollars. "Cost of Health Care Up $400 Million" Boston January 24, 2008

When the legislation mandating that all residents of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts have health insurance was signed into law by Mitt Romney in 2006 the state under estimated the uninsured at 400,000---that number was off by a mere 250,000

While running for Governor, Mitt Romney pledged no new taxes but Governor Romney supported tax hikes on gasoline, corporate trusts, non-profit corporations, sales catalogs to campaign donations.

You name it and Mitt will tax it or should we say, Raise User Fees---just another name for a government money grab.

Mitt Romney
should fit right in well with the Big Spenders in Washington, a wealthy politician who knows how to better spend other peoples money.

Islamic Jihad Propaganda Cartoon

The official media authority of the Palestinian Authority under Mahmoud Abbas, continues to portray the United States as the merciless enemy of the Arabs.

Satellite Out Of Control Falling To Earth

A large spy satellite is out of control and will re-enter earths atmosphere either in February or March and will crash according to NASA.

The bus sized satellite can no longer be controlled may contain hazardous materials. Numerous satellites in the past have fallen out of orbit and have crashed harmlessly. In 1979 Skylab a 78 ton space laboratory fell from orbit and mainly fell into the Indian Ocean and Australia. In 2002 parts of a science satellite fell into the Persian Gulf, it is not known at this time where this satellite may strike.

The National Security Agency refused to comment if a missile may be used to destroy the satellite. China recently conducted such an operation to test a space missile system but other satellites had to be maneuvered into new orbits to avoid being hit by debris.

Hamas Planned Demolition Of Border Fence

Hamas officials have acknowledged that the demolition of the border fence separating Gaza and Egypt was not related to the stoppage of fuel shipments by Israel at all but that months of planning went into the demolition operation.

Hamas Terrorist Commander Abu Usama told the Times of London, that work on the demolition of the border security fence that runs along the Philadelphi Corridor between Gaza and Egypt had been going on for months and said that Popular Resistance Committee men have been using acetylene torches for months slicing through the fence. Hamas seen here using a bulldozer to complete the destruction of the fence.

Hamas Chief Khaled Mashael, ordered the preparations and timed explosive charges of the demolition to coincide with the Islamic Jihad Terrorist Summit that began in Damascus on Wednesday---organized by Iran and Syria, attended by dozens of Islamic Jihad Terrorist Thugs seeking the destruction of Israel.

Khaled Mashael delivered an address calling on Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to ignore calls by Israel to close the border as Hamas was asserting authority over norther Sinai.

With the border open, Hamas was able to transfer weapons and heavier arms into Gaza that had been smuggled in through a network of tunnels up until then. An estimated 350,000 Arabs have entered into Sinai since Wednesday according to Mossad and Israel Defense Forces have been placed on high alert as it is feared that Islamic Jihad Terrorist Thugs may attempt to kidnap Israel civilians and take them into Gaza.

David Saranga, Israel Consul for Media and Public Affairs said, "...that the protest is aimed to place the distress faced by Israeli's on the American and global agenda. To this day, all attempts to place this on the American media agenda have failed. Moreover, recently we saw increased coverage of the suffering of Gaza residents in wake of Israel's steps. We must stress to the world the suffering of Sderot residents to illustrate to the Security Council members, the ceaseless rain of Qassam Rockets and to call on the International community to stop ignoring wha is going on in Israel."

This evening in Israel, 5 more Qassam Rockets were fired by Islamic Jihad Terrorist Thugs into Sderot from Gaza.

Asteroid To Make Near Pass Of Earth

An asteroid at least 500 feet long will make a close pass near the earth next Tuesday but NASA says there is no chance of it striking our planet.

Known to Scientists as 2007 TU24 it is expected to whiz on by with its closest approach of 334,000 miles or about 1.5 times the distance of the moon. The night time approach should allow for those viewing with a medium sized telescope to get a glimpse.

Denny To Drop Out Of Presidential Race

Seen here Rep. Denny Kucinich, D-OH and his 30 year old wife Elizabeth, the Ohio Congressman has said that he will now be transitioning out of the race for President and resume his duties as a part time Congressman.

While campaigning for Congress and missing some 300 floor votes while collecting his $169,300 salary which members of Congress now earn after receiving their $4,100.00 pay raise this month, its time to get back to the job he was elected to do?

Facing a Democratic Primary challenge to his 10th District Congressional Seat by 3 other Democrats and Councilman Joe Cimperman who has been endorsed by Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson, 2008 may not be the year for Denny?

Hamas Propagandists Stage Fuel Crisis

Hamas photo-op staging a scene of darkness as Journalists were invited in to see Ismail Haniyeh along with his Ministers sitting around a table by candle light because of low fuel in Gaza---whats wrong with this picture?

Fuel supplies were not low and the meeting was held during the day, all the Hamas propagandists had to do was open up those curtains behind them but Islamic Jihad never wants to miss out on the opportunity to create an illusion of hardship to blame it on Israel. Hamas Staged Blackout Jerusalem January 23, 2008

Hamas in Gaza faked a fuel crisis to protest the stopping of fuel shipments by Israel---electricity was never shut off by Israel. Hamas shut off their own electricity to protest the suspension of fuel deliveries that they needed to shoot off Qassam Rockets from Gaza. Hamas faked the blackouts attempting to obtain empathy from the Western media.

It took Hamas some time to collapse the so called Apartheid Wall separating Gaza from Egypt The Times of London reported, the Islamist group that claimed responsibility had been involved with the endeavor for months cutting through it using acetylene torches which when explosive charges were set in 17 different places the wall fell down.

Residents of Gaza then flooded into Egypt to pick up basic necessities? Seen in the photo that blue box does not contain water but a new Toshiba television set. Markets Video Calling For The Destruction Of Israel

On line bookseller has defended it's decision to market a DVD calling for Israel's destruction.

Portrayed through the eyes of a Muslim, the DVD calls for the elimination of political independence for Jews the films web site reports, "It reaches the unavoidable conclusion that Western and Israeli misunderstanding of Islam is leading to a coming war, which will have devastating consequences for the West."

Islam rejects Israel and at the direction of Iran, Islamic Jihad is preparing for the coming war and Israel is the number one target.

Bin Laden's Son: My Father Is A Very Kind Man And He Is Very Sorry...

Even though Osama bin Laden terrorized the world on 9/11 his Son Omar bin Laden said about his father in an interview with ABC News, "...I don't think 9/11 was right personally but it happened...I don't think what is going on in Palestine [there is no such place as Palestine] is right. I don't think what is going on in Iraq is father is a very kind man and he is very sorry when he does something like September 11...he believes if he put two buildings down, maybe some people will die but millions others will be saved..." Rediff India Abroad, January 22, 2008

Unhealthy Censorship China Imprisons Internet Journalists Ahead Of The Olympics

Reporters Without Borders have once again urged the Chinese Government to release Zhang Jianhong who writes under the pseudonym Li Hong, so that he may be taken to a hospital and treated appropriately, he is suffering from muscular dystrophy and his health is in decline.

Li Jianqiang an Attorney representing Li Hong, received a letter in June from the authorities in which his client described his state of health. "...there is currently no effective medication or treatment. My health has worsened this last month and my muscles are atrophying. I can hardly move my arms anymore and this will extend to my legs. If it goes on, I will suffer the terrible experience of being completely paralyzed like the British Physicist Stephen Hawking."

Li was sentenced on the 19 March, 2007 to 6 years in prison by a Court in Zhejiang Province after he was convicted for writing articles defaming the Chinese government. On the 02 January, the Chinese government rejected the Internet Journalist second request to be released.

To maintain its grip on power, the Chinese government which has always controlled the news media has seen its influence erode due to the Internet. Victims of Internet censorship have been arrested and imprisoned by the Internet Police, as Chinese authorities have cracked down arresting more than 860 people last year. Human Rights groups have said that China is attempting to round up dissidents ahead of the Olympics.

Afghan Journalism Student Sentenced To Death For Humiliating Islam

A 23 year old Journalism student Sayad Parwez Kambaksh, has been sentenced to death for Blasphemy in Afghanistan.

On the 27 October, Kambaksh was arrested for distributing materials that he downloaded from the Internet, deemed to be offensive to Islam. Going on-line and discovering an interesting paper, Kambaksh printed it out for his class at Balkh University, to discuss it with his teacher and fellow students, the paper gets copied and distributed.

When Kambaksh goes on trial, he has no Attorney and a 3 Judge Panel decides that the Journalism student should be put to death because the paper that was distributed humiliates Islam.

Balkh province Deputy Attorney General Hafizullah Khaliqyar, threatened on Monday to arrest any Journalist who supports Kambaksh at a media briefing where officials defended the arrest of the student reporter. Islamic Religious Clerics have also called for the death penalty of Kambaksh. Arab Times, Kuwait, January 23, 2008

The United States Military currently occupies Afghanistan, after toppling the Taliban subsequent to 9/11---so far President Hamid Karzai nor the U.S. Military have made any comments.

It has been speculated that the Islamic Court real motive was not to protect Islam at all but to silence Kambaksh's brother Yaqub Ibrahimi, who is a Journalist and has written a series of articles reporting on the atrocities that have been committed by senior government officials in northern Afghanistan.

Mickey & Minnie Mouse Model New Clothes For Chinese New Year

Chinese New Years 4706 begins on February 7 and in China this is a special time of family reunions as families gather at each others homes for joyful visits and shared meals.

In the United States, many early immigrants arrived without families and discovered a sense of community through neighborhood associations. Many Chinese community organizations in the United States will host Chinese New Years Day celebrations and banquets.

Chinese New Years ends with the Lantern festival on the 15th of February, some of the Lanterns will be works of art, painted with birds, flowers and scenes from the past. People will hang their glowing lanterns at their homes and will carry them to an evening parade by the light of the moon. In many communities the highlight of the Lantern Festival will be the Dragon Dance and many communities have added parades and floats.

Seen here yesterday at Disneyland Hong Kong, Mickey & Minnie Mouse model their new clothes for Chinese New Years designed by Vivienne Tam.

What Would Martin Luther King Think?

Lei Yixin, with his clay model of Dr. Martin Luther King who said, "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."

Chinese Sculptor Lei Yixin, Director of the Human Sculpture Institute at Hunan Province, China received the contract to construct the Martin Luther King statue which will be unveiled in 2009 on the Mall in Washington, D.C. Lei is the winner of several prizes in China for his work of 20 years, his sculptures may be seen on display in Changsha Square, the capital of Hunan Province.

Unfortunately, Dr. King's dream in 2008 is not yet a reality. Lea Winfrey Young of King is Ours in Atlanta, complains that "outsourcing by U.S. companies and organizations to China has gone too far this time...that an African-American company or any American should have been picked for such an important project..." Washington August 15, 2007

The King statute will be the tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King. The Memorial will be between the Jefferson and Lincoln Memorials.

On October 28, 2007 the California State NAACP, ratified a resolution in support of the Atlanta based King is Ours movement which is protesting decisions made by the King Memorial Project Foundation, which has circulated a petition protesting a Chinese sculptor making the King statue.

The NAACP claims to be one of the most influential civil rights organizations "To promote equality of rights and to eradicate caste or race prejudice among the citizens of the United States, to advance the interests of colored citizens, to secure for them impartial suffrage and to increase their opportunities for securing justice in the courts, education for the children, employment according to their ability and complete equality before law."

Continuing prejudice in the USA by the NAACP---judging people not on their abilities but by the color of their skin. Oh My!

Islamic Law: Unequal Rights For Women

Members of the United Nations Women's Rights Panel sat aghast on Saturday as Women in a Saudi delegation testified. The January 20, 2008

Two years ago Fatima al-Timani, heard a knock on her front door, it was the local Police delivering news that a Judge had annulled her marriage in absentia, on the grounds that she had married beneath her. Under Sharia Law, Women need permission from their family to marry.

Under Sharia Law, Women are victimized daily, suffering severe restrictions they can not drive, they can not appear before a Court without a male representative or travel without their male guardian's permission.

Recently the Saudi Arabia King pardoned a 19 year old Rape Victim that had been sentenced to Lashes for being in a car with a man that was not a relative, after international attention spotlighted the case.

The U.N. Panel heard testimony of a man that testified about Polygamy and said, "...a man who is not confident about treating his women fairly should only marry one woman...Polygamy is humanitarian as it gives more women opportunities to marry and covers the expenses."

The U.N. monitoring group said, "...the Saudi delegation unmasked the pervasive discrimination against Women...the responses speak for themselves...Only when Women are free to make their own decisions...are they full citizens."
