Remembering What’s Important

As we wait for the inevitable resignation of Dennis Hastert this week, let’s try to put the world in perspective, shall we? Sex with Congressional pages is a minor scandal, compared to, say the violence in Iraq. Here’s a reminder:

“The number of U.S troops wounded in Iraq has surged to its highest monthly level in nearly two years as American GIs fight block-by-block in Baghdad to try to check a spiral of sectarian violence that U.S. commanders warn could lead to civil war.

Last month, 776 U.S. troops were wounded in action in Iraq, the highest number since the military assault to retake the insurgent-held city of Fallujah in November 2004, according to Defense Department data. It was the fourth-highest monthly total since the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in March 2003.

The sharp increase in American wounded — with nearly 300 more in the first week of October — is a grim measure of the degree to which the U.S. military has been thrust into the lead of the effort to stave off full-scale civil war in Iraq, military officials and experts say. Beyond Baghdad, Marines battling Sunni insurgents in Iraq’s western province of Anbar last month also suffered their highest number of wounded in action since late 2004.”

If you look at the front page of the major newspapers today, they’re still covering Mark Foley. Not good news for Hastert and the Republicans. They’ve been unable to get the media off this story. As poll numbers decline, Hastert will have to leave. I’m going to try to coax my Washington analyst Charlie Baysal to join us sometime this week. He worked in both the House and the Senate for a decade and knows all these players. We’ll try to get his insights.

Meanwhile, Sam Blakeslee on Monday, Ernie Dalidio on Tuesday, Anderson vs. Gibson on Wednesday, John Ewan on Thursday and Christine Mullholland on Friday. Also hope to have an update on the mess in Atascadero.

Have a good week.

    DAVE,
    DID YOU NOT THINK THAT IRAN WOULD UP THE ATTACKS AND SUICIDE BOMBINGS A MERE 30 DAYS BEFORE THE ELECTIONS TO HELP YOU DEMOCANTS GET ELECTED? THE DEFEATOCRATS HAVE BEEN IN CAHOOTS WITH IRAN FROM THE BEGINNING…THIS IS ONLY IRAN’S FUTILE ATTEMPT TO HELP YOUR MORALLY CORRUPT POLITICIANS GET A SEAT IN EITHER HOUSE! WHILE WE (THE GOOD GUYS…THE PATRIOTS…THE SOLDIERS, THE REPUBLICANS) ARE FIGHTING TO KEEP YOU SAFE AND FREE YOU ALL CUDDLE UP WITH THE ENEMY TO CUT SOME SORT OF DEAL TO SAVE YOU NECKS.
    AS I HAVE SAID BEFORE, HATING BUSH WILL NOT GET ANY OF YOU DEMOCANTS ELECTED. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE CAN SEE RIGHT THROUGH YOU. IF I WAS WRONG, AND 65% OF AMERICANS WANT OUT OF THE WAR, THEN WHY ARE ALL THE POLLS SHOWING DEMS AT BEST TIED OR LOSING TO THE REPUBLICANS! YA KNOW WHY? IT’S SIMPLE. WE ALL HATE WAR BUT YOU CAN’T MUSTER MORE THAN 45-48% AT THE POLLS! YOUR PARTY HAS LOST ITS SOUL. IT HAS NO PLAN, YOU ARE ALL MORALLY CORRUPT, AND YOU ARE ACTING LIKE A 13 YR OLD GIRL WHO WAS TOLD TO STAY HOME ON FRIDAY NIGHT! GROW UP! BETTER YET GROW “A PAIR”!
    BUT THEN IN JUST 30 SOME ODD DAYS THIS WILL ALL BE OVER…AND I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE WHAT ALL YOU NAMBLACANTS WILL BE BITCHING ABOUT THEN…BUT IT WILL BE SOMETHING WE KNOW THAT FOR SURE!
    Q: WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A PUPPY AND A DEMOCANT?
    A: A PUPPY STOPS WHINING WHEN IT GROWS UP!

    “Brilliant post Jerry, you really illustrate what Dave posted about.”

    Of course you say that the party of “Not Republicans” is “in cahoots with Iran”; a tired refrain from the mindset that morphed triple amputee Vietnam Veteran Senator Max Cleeland into the picture of bin Laden during the elections in 2002 because the Senator thought Congress was ceding too much power to the executive branch. The very same reason that that campaign was able to exist is the very same reason the polls are so close now; the Republicans spend way more than the Democrats, and you have many more voices in the media; yes, Rich, I understand that there is the belief that all of the media is liberally slanted, but with so many people believing that Fox is news, and Rush and Sean and Bill having so many listeners, and having a former Faux News personality as the official Whitehouse spokesperson, there is not a balanced message in the current media. Jerry, is your spell-check program something that can be downloaded from the Republican website? Or have you simply gone through and “taught” it to spell words like “Democants”? I think I am done responding to your comments for awhile, unless you can get through one whole individual comment without using inflammatory name calling. Grow a pair indeed; how about you simply grow up?

    Bob: The news is reported fairly from news reporters. The pundits are commentary. Opinion. The right has embraced that commentary because for eons, we had the opposite shoved up our you know what, and to be honest, folks like me got a little fed up with that. So to hear a conservative espouse a common belief via editorial comment on what the other side is up to is refreshing. What the hell is the difference between Hannity and Olberman? O’reilly and Matthews?
    What is wrong with having Tony Snow as your PIO? he has experience as a speechwriter, radio show call in host, TV commentary. He’s intelligent and conservative. He never gets flustered or angry. If your side was in office, wouldn’t your side pick the equal but on the liberal side of the fence, like George Stephanopolous? C’mon Bob, you have to admit that. Tony Snow is not the wicked witch here, he is an appointed position, and tries to control the unruly spoiled brat media, an impossible task. One of the biggest reasons the media HATES the Bush administration is because it is not press friendly. Oh well.
    I know FOX pisses you guys off, but it does provide some counterweight from the same old stuff with NO opposing view. The mainstream media IS liberal, Bob, decidedly so. Even their own people admit that. David Gregory for instance, and even old Helen down in the front row. Can’t they just ACT LIKE they are unbiased? If they did, FOX would not be the success that it is, which is why they are overtaking Olberman and Matthews and all the rest at a rapid pace.
    Much of the written media is also failing, largely due to their liberal leanings. The NYT didn’t endear themselves to a vast number of Americans who think their editorial staff should have gone to jail for treason. MOST of their editorials are far left. The same from coast to coast with only a few exceptions. Oh there are folks who say it’s because of the internet. Yeah, right.

    More of Bob making mountains out of molehills. Redneck, George Stephasnufflilufucis or however his name is spelled, was the direct of communications for the Clinton White House, but of course liberals think that life began on earth the day Bush 43 was elected president. There grasp of history is suddenly very limited. Anyway, Fox News is but one of 7 major television outlets. The rest are either left of center or just plain liberal. There are ZERO conservative print papers in America and only a handful of conservative magazines. The editorial staffs fo the WSJ and Wash Times may be conservative but the reporters are definately liberal.

    Dave, why is Hastert’s resignation a foregone conclusion? You cannot point to ANYTHING that says that Hastert 1) tried to cove it up, 2) was totally ignorant of Foley’s proclivities. Haster was made aware of e-mails, addressed the appearances with Foley, told him to stop and then when Foley didn’t, Hastert forced him out. The IMs are three years old, held in secret by someone (probably a Democrat or their operative) and are of uncertain authentisity to begin with. I know what you are thinking, Dave: Republicans hold thenmselves to a higher standard by being the “family values” party and since other Speakers were forced to resign, therefore Hastert should resign. What is amazing that Democrats are perfectly cool with their own people actually doing immoral, unethical and illegal things and then rallying around them. Studds, Reynolds, Clinton, Jefferson, Byrd just to name a few. New Democrat Party slogan: Democrats – The Party of the Double Standard, and Happy with it!

    Brett,

    I heard you on the show the other day talking to Dave Romero. I felt you were totally out of line telling him he was incorrect. Why in the hell should Mr. Dalido pay for the entire Prado Road overpass unless his stores are the sole use for it. It also concerns me that you seem to feel it is the right of you and your environmental nutcases that should decide what someone can do with their own property. By the way, you are a total fool to think that the property cannot be built on without the city’s assistance. Quit reading notes from no on J and use your brain.

    Dude, you sounded as much on the edge as Santa Maria Bill! Instead of worrying so much about Jerry, why don’t you think of some intelligent things to type here. YOu were totally disrespectful of Mayor Romero, consequency causing me to disrespect your no on J position.

    Thank You.

    For all of you that don’t know, North Korea probably just opened up a new front on the War Against the Axis of Evil by testing a nuclear device. This just proves what I have thought for quite some time, that as a diplomat, Jimmy Carter is a good carpenter. Way to go!! It was stupid to give the North Koreans ANY kind of nuclear technology in 1994 and it remains to be a mistake with potentially catastrophic consequences. Oh and hats off to Bill Clinton for okaying the deal and Maddy Notbright for choosing to dance with the North Korean toad instead of advocating something that might have looked like action. Of course, it will be blamed on George Bush for choosing to bomb the Iraqis and the Afghanis instead of bombing Yongbyong and Pyongyang back to the stone age. Whatever. The “Dear Leader” of North Korea and Bill Clinton’s incompetence is ensuring that Bush will firmly cement his legacy as the first three-front wartime president in U.S. history. Way to go, Bill!

    Slo Travis. You need to learn to listen. He was incorrect. The Traffic Impact Fees- TIF that the City collects from new development was going to be used to pay for the City’s portion. Those monies are supposed to be used to mitigate traffic impacts that occur due to specific projects throughout the City.

    I didn’t say that Dalidio should pay for all of the overpass. I only spoke about how the City of SLO was going to pay for the City’s share. The developer was also going to be given back 50% of the net sales tax revenue to pay part of his portion.

    I suggest you take some time and go back through all the information regarding the funding of the Prado Rd interchange it’s on the City’s website. Do a search.

    After you become knowledgable on the subject then come back here and call me a fool.

    You tell me how the Prado Rd. overpass is going to funded?. The cost estimates are 2x’s what was estimated only last year. The new cost is in the mid $40 million range. Caltans, despite Mayor Romero’s comment, isn’t going to fund the overpass.

    Do you believe that RWQCB will issue a wastewater discharge permit for the project?. How is the project going to be able to meet fire flow requirements. How about potable water. The list goes on and on. Measure J is just a way for the developers to try and get the project annexed into the City.

    The community has a say in how the property is developed because the community is impacted by the development and public services are needed for the development to be built. That is why the public has a say.

    Do you even know me or know anything about me?. Environmental nutcase?. That’s a pretty strong statement to make given you don’t know me.

    There is a ways to go yet, and ya’ll on the left ought not to start salivating and planning a new tax code. Apparently someone sat on the Foley folly for 3 yrs..who? voters aren’t dumb. If the DOJ investigators find out someone sat on it for political gain…OOPS. That won’t look so good. And,why would Hastert protect Foley’s seat? doesn’t make sense, when he could have flushed him 3 yrs ago, and recovered. For that matter, why would Hastert protect Foley? they aren’t buds. Foley is not a “man’s man” sort of guy who hangs with the big boys, and may have been protected by a ring of gay staffers throughout the house…we shall see. It will all come out. In the meantime, FOLEY IS GONE IN DISGRACE! Voters will not give a damn in a few weeks. My bet is that Hastert will stay, that the GOP will get back on message and point the press to an investigation in progress for Foley-gate, effectively shutting them down. Come November 7, conservative voters envision Charlie Rangel in charge of Ways and Means, and Speaker Pelosi, and amnesty, and a host of other crap, and they will not stay home to avoid voting to punish the GOP. Between now and then, a lot can and will happen that will solidify the base. It ain’t over till its over.

    Hey Rich maybe this time since W is the lame duck he won’t take any crap when the finger pointing starts, (and it will), and he will just lay out the facts, tell the history of it. The guy is just too nice, has too much class. He should have slapped Carter at the King funeral…just walked up and slapped the worthless peanut eater, then turned to the camera and just birded it. These people on the left, I tell ya, we need to give it back to ’em. This is a joke Bob…slow breaths now…this is Red’s humor.
    So now we will have two of the axis countries that the useless u.n. will be calling for “sanctions” on before they nuke one of us (I guess because it was just a little nuke, not a big one). If it is ever a big one though, they are gonna get PISSED, and sock them right in the stomach.
    This is gonna get interesting. Maybe we will be lucky today, and Bill and Jimmy and Madeline will weigh in (sorry Maddy, no offense intended) on CNN and give W. some advice on how to be an effective war time leader!
    This will speed up Japan’s hawkish agenda to arm their military (sounds dumb doesn’t it?)which if they stay our ally, a good thing, no?

    Rich: The news from Korea is truly depressing, what with hostilities on the North/South border and the reporting of the test detonation, it is not good news at all. I am not going to try and cover for any action that may or may not have taken place under Clinton concerning nuclear technologies, but I do seem to remember that Pakistan was rumored to have been dealing nuclear information with N. Korea. Regardless of how they acquired their technology, does it really help matters to engage in a blame game now?
    Getting back to the issue of the original post, especially Iraq, link here to see a plan put forth by the Iraq Study Group suggesting a plan to divide Iraq up into three different regions, which according to the person in charge, James A. Baker III is a way to avoid a “cut and run” or a “stay the course” approach. I am hopeful that some sort of change will come about; thinking back to that link I posted recently from the ABC site featuring the letter home from Iraq, I really respect the job our troops are doing. They are following orders, doing what they signed up to do. I believe that anyone of them would be upset if I said that I felt sad for them being there since most of them have volunteered to be there. Link here for a look at what some of the troops are feeling and writing about. Rich, I know it pisses off those on the right, especially those who are active duty or recently discharged, but it is the direction or lack of direction by the military command, and the civilian leadership that I have a problem with, not the troops. I heard said before that if you don’t support the mission you are not supporting the troops; I can understand how you believe that, but I really would like for the troops to get everything they need, and because they are not getting good enough equipment, the best armored vehicles, the wounded apparently don’t always get the best treatment when they get back home, I do find fault with those in charge. Based of the performance of those in charge now, how can I believe that they will do the best thing in the future? You may want to say that the administration knows what it is doing, but through my not-military-trained eyes, it sure doesn’t seem like it.

    Oh, so now you don’t want to play the blame game with N. korea, but you and the rest of you libs couldn’t wait ten seconds to start blaming Bush and Rumsfeld for Iraq. Nope. It’s all the Clinton Administrations fault. Fact: A.Q. Khan started peddling his nuclear wares during the Clinton Administration. Fact: Jimmy Carter advocated and Clinton approved giving N. Korea a light water reactor. All Clinton’s fault.

    The problem with carving up Iraq is that the Iraqis don’t want to be carved up. Just ask them they will tell you.

    By thea way all, check out my new blog. I have begun posting my policy issues as a start for creating a road map for different solutions to our problems.

    Rich: The agreements that Carter hammered out for Clinton back in ’94 also required that there be monitoring of the nuclear program that N. Korea was undertaking. Seals, locks and video camera links were all installed so that the progress was verifiable. According to those records, there was no recorded progress in enriching plutonium during those years (94-2001). After the Bush Administration came in and walked away from all of the agreements that the Clinton Administration had put in place, the seals were removed, the locks destroyed and the cameras and video feeds disconnected. So let’s do a play a blame game if you want to; no new weapons development during Clinton’s term, and unbridled development since Bush has been office and named N. Korea as one of the axis of evil. I am sure glad we have a big strong tough leader to protect us, especially since he won’t negotiate with anybody, like walking away from the talks of the eight nations that was making progress with N. Korea.

    North Korea Nukes Clinton Legacy

    Charles R. Smith

    Asian Arms Race Result of Appeasement Policy

    The leftist media spin is that the current crisis in North Asia is the result of George W. Bush calling Pyongyang a member of the ‘axis of evil.’ In reality, the soft-line appeasement policy taken by Clinton against North Korea and China is what has led us to this point.

    For example, former Clinton adviser Paul Begala, now serving as a talking head on CNN, claimed that the Clinton administration contained the threat from North Korea. Clearly, Mr. Begala missed the 1990s.

    Of course, Mr. Begala simply forgot that Clinton’s military chief of staff testified in 1998 that North Korea did not have an active ballistic missile program. One week later the North Koreans launched a missile over Japan that landed off the Alaska coast.

    During the early Clinton years, hard-liners and so-called conservative hawks advocated a pre-emptive strike to halt North Korea’s nuclear weapons development before it could field an atomic bomb. Instead of taking the hard line, President Clinton elected to rely on former President Jimmy Carter and decided to appease the Marxist-Stalinist dictatorship.

    Carter met with North Korean leader Kim Jong-il in Pyongyang and returned to America waving a piece of paper and declaring peace in our time. Kim, according to Carter, had agreed to stop his nuclear weapons development.

    The Clinton appeasement program for North Korea included hundreds of millions of dollars in aid, food, oil and even a nuclear reactor. However, the agreement was flawed and lacked even the most informal means of verification.

    In return, Kim elected to starve his people while using the American aid to build uranium bombs. The lowest estimate is that Kim starved to death over 1 million of his own people, even with the U.S. aid program.

    Axis of Evil and Friends

    North Korea was not left all alone in its effort to obtain nuclear weapons. North Korea relied heavily on China, its closest ally, to assist in its all-out effort to obtain the atomic bomb.
    (REMEBER WHN CLITTON SOLD CHINA ALL THOSE SUPER COMPUTERS?)
    Beijing elected to covertly aid its North Asian ally by proliferation. China allowed Pakistan to send nuclear technology purchased from Beijing to North Korea in exchange for No Dong missile technology.

    Beijing provided Pakistan with its nuclear weapons technology, including an operational atomic bomb design. Pakistan is now providing North Korea with equipment and engineering to assist in its bomb-making efforts.

    The fact remains that North Korea acquired some key equipment for its nuclear weapons program from Pakistan in 1998. The key equipment, including a working gas centrifuge used to enrich uranium, was shipped to Pyongyang in the coffin of the murdered wife of a North Korean diplomat.

    Beijing’s indirect assistance includes allowing Pakistani C-130 cargo flights over China to Pyongyang that carry key equipment for nuclear weapons production. The flights return to Pakistan with North Korean No Dong missile parts.

    Missiles for Nukes

    Pakistan also benefited from the trade in weaponry. The missiles-for-nukes trade gave Pakistan an operational means to deliver its atomic bombs.

    Pakistan has since successfully test-fired and deployed its own version of the No Dong missile, called the Ghauri. The North Korean-designed missile has a range of nearly 900 miles and can cover virtually all of India, Pakistan’s rival in Southwest Asia.

    The ultimate irony here is that the North Korean No Dong and Tae Po Dong missiles are based on technology given to Pyongyang by China. In 1994, the Wall Street Journal revealed that Chinese-made CSS-2 missile technology had found its way into North Korean hands.

    China has also allowed North Korea to ship SCUD missiles through its territory for Middle Eastern customers. According to a Canadian undercover operative, North Korean agents moved dismantled SCUD missiles through China into Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iran.

    The allegations proved to be correct because U.S. satellites were able to follow Chinese-made M-11 missiles bound for Pakistan over the same land route in 2000. The illegal export of M-11 missiles brought swift sanctions against Beijing by the Bush administration.

    In recent months China has been much more overt about assisting Pyongyang with its nuclear weapons program. In 2002, China sold Pyongyang a large shipment of tributyl phosphate, a key chemical used to extract plutonium and uranium from spent fuel rods for atomic bombs.

    U.S. Pressure on Asian Allies

    In contrast, the U.S. repeatedly told India, South Korea, Japan and Taiwan that they should not develop nuclear weapons. The U.S. position was that the no one had the right to bring a new arms race to Asia.

    The U.S. also backed up this policy by placing severe restrictions on the export of nuclear and ballistic missile technology to India, Taiwan, Korea and Japan. The trade agreements also had teeth built into them in case U.S. technology was abused.

    For example, when India developed and tested its nuclear bomb, the U.S. responded with hefty sanctions and a diplomatic freeze that is just now beginning to thaw.

    Compared to the strict U.S. policy, China did not discourage its client states, North Korea and Pakistan, from developing nuclear weapons. Instead, China has overtly and covertly assisted both nations to develop and deploy active weapons upon working delivery systems.

    Nature abhors a vacuum, especially in the case of nuclear weapons. The whole equation of Asian defense has changed overnight. As a result of China’s nuclear proliferation, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan may now have to follow Pyongyang’s lead and begin their own atomic weapons programs. That decision will be made in Tokyo, Seoul and Taipei, not in Washington.

    It should shock no one, including the China lobby and DNC apologists, that Beijing will continue to support North Korea’s nuclear weapons program.

    However, some fools continue to be suckered by Beijing’s obvious ploy to dominate Asia. The fools’ hope that China will restrain Pyongyang continues to echo off the lips of the leftist media, as if by simply wishing it were true will make it so.

    The fact remains that Bill Clinton’s legacy is an unstable world filled with hungry dictators and nuclear weapons. The result of the Clinton appeasement policy toward China is a new arms race.

    AND YOU WANT THE SEXOCANTS BACK IN OFFICE? HAHAHAHA! GO BACK TO YOUR SITCOMS AND SUSHI!

    Anonymous, Nancy, Bob, and…

    Let’s say for argument/debate’s sake that the Democrats win both houses. The reason for that will be that the Republican status quo is being punished by voters, for the reasons of _____________. You can fill it in, whether real or perceived, it is news media driven, and they are like hounds on a coon – relentless. The story grows ever more complicated, with twists and turns now going down endless rabbit trails of who said what and when.

    My point is this. In some states, a bipartisan effort has been made to get real. Democratic governors have listened to their conservative constituents and signed legislation that lowers taxes and does not redistribute wealth to a host of entitlement programs, as just one example.

    Will Pelosi and Rangel keep the mad dog charge to reverse everything that has been done (that effort will be vetoed) and show the voters what their agenda is? If they do, conservatives will clean house, snap their collective heads outta their you know whats, move a LITTLE to the middle, and win everything back.

    I am not so sure now that with all of the rhetoric being thrown out by the Pelosi camp that it is not already taking a toll! Hallelujah.

    We shall see when their criticism mounts for how we handle the N. Koreans. The pack smells blood.

    Is it just me or has anyone noticed that after every major event, Bill Clinton claims to have had a plan to solve it? What I want to know is why he didn’t? Would it have put a crimp on his plans to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian crisis? Or would China have cutoff his faucet of campaign cash? Or, more than likely, is Clinton just lying again to make himself look good, or at least what looks good to liberals? Liberals do not respect action so the formation of a plan is better than actually executing a plan. Just like his claim he “tried” to get bin Laden, “tried” to give the American middle class a tax break, “planned” to bomb North Korea. I think Bush should find this supposed plan, be a bigger, better man than Clinton and then execute Clinton’s plan for him.

    Bob, you should check out my blog What Right Looks Like. If you liked my tax plan, see what else is in the mind of the Man from Paso. It is just a start, but I am curious what someone on the Left thinks about some of the things I have come up with.

    In 2002, the venerated (by the left) New York Times said that North Korea announced it had a nuclear bomb that it had been working on for “several years”. Since several is more than a couple, we can only assume that the nukes were developed on Bill’s watch, therefore it’s all his fault.

    NEWS FLASH:

    John F’n Kerry said when asked if he could take a trip to New Hampshire and kill two birds with one stone by Bill Mars I think, and Kerry replied he could go to 1600 Penn Ave. and kill one bird with a stone!

    WHat do you think of this? I heard this last night and it has not hit drudge yet? Do you think this is appropriate? Should the Secret Service Investigate? I think so!
