Rush Limbaugh to Headline Historic Pro-Troop Effort

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 30, 2008

Rush Limbaugh made headlines in 2005 when he traveled to Afghanistan to meet with U.S. troops serving in the war on terror. As he reported to his huge listening audience, he witnessed first-hand the “awe-inspiring” jobs our troops were doing there.

Now Rush has signed on to help the pro-troop organization, Move America Forward to send the largest single shipment of care packages to U.S. troops in history. The drive will culminate in a June 26th 8-hour web-a-thon called “From the Frontlines” that will feature video reports from our troops serving in Iraq & Afghanistan – and Rush has agreed to participate in the program that will be hosted by Move America Forward Chairman, Melanie Morgan, and blogger extraordinare, Michelle Malkin.

More Information: Move America Forward
Live Stream Channel: From the Frontline

I will be hosting a live-stream of this event on this blog, so stand-by for more information as the time nears.

The Lost Geese

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 30, 2008


Geese in the Valley


Geese in a Grey Sky
I saw these geese circle the campus of Western Carolina University on my way to lunch. They flew from the north, paralleling NC107 on the west side of the campus, turning at the Ramsey Center, and flew back north along the east side of the campus.

When I worked in Maggie Valley, I saw the same sort of thing a lot…a formation of geese would fly by and wheel around and go back the way they came, sometimes repeating the path two or three times.

I wonder if they are lost, or just cruising?

Barack Obama and ACORN

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 30, 2008

What if Barack Obama’s most important radical connection has been hiding in plain sight all along? Obama has had an intimate and long-term association with the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (Acorn), the largest radical group in America. If I told you Obama had close ties with MoveOn.org or Code Pink, you’d know what I was talking about. Acorn is at least as radical as these better-known groups, arguably more so. Yet because Acorn works locally, in carefully selected urban areas, its national profile is lower. Acorn likes it that way. And so, I’d wager, does Barack Obama.

This is a story we’ve largely missed. While Obama’s Acorn connection has not gone entirely unreported, its depth, extent, and significance have been poorly understood. Typically, media background pieces note that, on behalf of Acorn, Obama and a team of Chicago attorneys won a 1995 suit forcing the state of Illinois to implement the federal “motor-voter” bill. In fact, Obama’s Acorn connection is far more extensive. In the few stories where Obama’s role as an Acorn “leadership trainer” is noted, or his seats on the boards of foundations that may have supported Acorn are discussed, there is little follow-up. Even these more extensive reports miss many aspects of Obama’s ties to Acorn.

An Anti-Capitalism Agenda
To understand the nature and extent of Acorn’s radicalism, an excellent place to begin is Sol Stern’s 2003 City Journal article, “ACORN’s Nutty Regime for Cities.” (For a shorter but helpful piece, try Steven Malanga’s “Acorn Squash.”)

Source: National Review

Commentary

The group ACORN is really a collection of nuts. They have been working in select urban areas to subvert our Republic, and have registered hundreds of thousands to vote, many of them fraudulently. Several of their members have been arrested for such activity.

KMOX–Eight ACORN Workers arrested for Election Fraud

Fraud in ACORN-led voter registration drives isn’t just limited to Missouri. “Idealistic” ACORN workers have been convicted of election-related offenses in Wisconsin and Colorado. What’s more, investigations have occurred in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Tennessee. In Minnesota, authorities found hundreds of voter registration cards in the trunk of a car owned by a former ACORN member suspected of registering voters twice so he could double his fees. A few disillusioned ACORN organizers admit that honesty was never a high priority in the organization. Loretta Barton, a former organizer in Dayton, Ohio, admits, “All ACORN wanted from registration drives was results.” Apparently, the group wasn’t too concerned about how those results came about. In 2004, for example, one Ohio ACORN worker was given crack cocaine in exchange for fraudulent registrations, which included underage, deceased or fictitious persons with names such as Mary Poppins, Dick Tracy and Jive Turkey. Nate Toler, an ACORN organizer, told the Wall Street Journal’s John Fund: “There’s no quality control on purpose, no checks and balances. The internal motto is, ‘We don’t care if it’s a lie, just so long as it stirs up the conversation.’” He added, “I may have my head chopped off for telling the truth.” Now that’s not nice.

Be sure and read the entire article by Stanley Kurtz in the National Review. The body-count of illegal and unethical behavior surrounding Obama is breath-taking. This is also another reason that the American people cannot vote this man in as President of these United States.

The Money Motive Behind Scott McClellan Book

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 30, 2008

A little background for those who have been under a rock lately:

Former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan has written a book in which he claims his boss (President George W Bush) lied to sell America on the Invasion of Iraq.

There has been much coverage of the book, his claims, and he is the current Golden Boy of the anti-Bush Media. They have neglected to probe a little deeper into motives and incentives for publishing the book.

Listen to this bit of audio from The Warroom with Quinn & Rose from just before the 8.30 am break this morning:

Quinn & Rose 05-30-2008

Scott McClellan’s Mother is Carol Strayhorn, who ran for Governor of Texas as an Independent.
