a while. Here is a Tom Tancredo article that nails it.
When Tony Rezko held a reception at his home for Iraqi-born billionaire Nadhmi Auchi on April 3, 2004, White House hopeful Barack Obama and his wife were also there, Stuart Levine testified just now at Rezko's trial.
Auchi is the man who provided Rezko a $3.5 million loan that Rezko did not disclose to the court -- resulting in his January arrest.
"Mr. and Mrs. Obama were there, were they not?" Rezko lawyer Joseph Duffy asked.
"Yes, sir," Levine said.
Obama and his aides have said Obama has no recollection of ever meeting Auchi.
Let me see.... Hussein has a buddy named Rezko who obviously made it possible for him to buy a house by purchasing an adjoining lot that the seller said must be sold at the same time the house was..... Now Rezko has a buddy from Syria who made a loan of $3.5 million that he illegally concealed and got him arrested...
And of course Hussein can't remember being there. Of course he couldn't remember anything his Reverend of twenty years said until the tapes were produced...
Follow the money, dear chums. Follow the money.
This is getting "gooder" and "gooder" and "gooder."
I snatched the picture from Denny Wilson at Grouchy Old Cripple in Atlanta. It just absolutely describes my feelings. If I had wanted snow and sleet on April 14 I would have stayed in Denver.
But I must admit that all the doomsayers were right:
Meteorologists disagree about the cause and the extent of the cooling trend… but they are almost unanimous in the view that the trend will reduce agricultural productivity for the rest of the century. Newsweek- April 28 1975
They were just 32 years, 11 months and 14 days early.
Before I came over here I thought we (the Australian Army) were pretty…hot….. was I ever wrong!….The Yanks (I hope you don’t mind me using that word) are so professional from the top to the bottom that it is almost embarrassing to be in their company,.....
If nothing else, coming here has taught me that the Americans are a truly great Nation and a truly great bunch of people…..Let’s face it they don’t HAVE to be here, they could stay in America and beat the shit out of anyone who threatened them, BUT THEY ARE HERE because they believe they should be here, and the Iraqis would be screwed if they weren’t here…..When I come home, you and I we are going to the US, we will buy some bikes and we are going riding….
Read all of the Australian soldier's comments.
Compare that to what our anti-war Left thinks.
Protesters burned an American soldier in effigy at a peace rally in
Portland, Oregon, on March 18.
"Bye, bye, G.I., in Iraq, you're gonna die!"
"Build a bonfire; build a bonfire; put the soldiers on the dock; put
the fascists in the middle, and we'll burn the f-----g lot!"
Did you get a good look at the video? Note the concealed faces?? What courage, eh? They can't even burn a dummy without being afraid to show their faces.
§ 953. Private correspondence with foreign governments.
Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
This section shall not abridge the right of a citizen to apply himself, or his agent, to any foreign government, or the agents thereof, for redress of any injury which he may have sustained from such government or any of its agents or subjects.
Okay, that's the law.
WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter said he feels "quite at ease" about meeting Hamas militants over the objections of Washington because the Palestinian group is essential to a future peace with Israel.
Several State Department officials, including the secretary, Condoleezza Rice, criticized his plans. Carter said he had not heard the objections directly, although a State Department spokesman said earlier that a senior official from the department had called the former president.
The State Department says it advised Carter twice against meeting representatives of Hamas, which Washington lists as a terrorist organization.
"I think that it's very important that at least someone meet with the Hamas leaders to express their views, to ascertain what flexibility they have, to try to induce them to stop all attacks against innocent civilians in Israel and to cooperate with the Fatah as a group that unites the Palestinians, maybe to get them to agree to a cease-fire — things of this kind," he said.
Now. It is obvious that Carter, he no longer deserved to be called ex-President, has broken the law. SecofStatde Rice has specifically asked him not to do this, yet he will.
No one is above the law. And it is impossible for any government to carry on foreign policy when a third party, especially an ex-President, becomes involved.
He should be arrested, indicted, tried and if convicted, punished as law specifies.
