Spain Faces Terrorism Despite Fleeing Iraq

Posted by Thunder Pig on January 19, 2008

The Civil Guard detained the suspects in Barcelona as part of a joint operation with Spain’s National Intelligence Centre (CNI).

Several premises were searched and, as the operation is ongoing, more arrests have not been ruled out.

Spain suffered at the hands of Islamist militants in 2004 when 191 people were killed in the Madrid train bombings.

Shortly after the 2004 Madrid Bombings, the Spaniards elected a Lefty, and they fled the field of battle. Not surprisingly, the terrorism has continued, putting the lie to the claim by Lefty Democrats, and Lefty Ron Paul Supporters that if we just leave Iraq, the terrorists will be okay with that.

Riiiight!

I have said time and again that this is a World War, and I have called it World War IV for several years. The objective for the Muslim Terrorists is control of the Earth. Since we don’t have any moon bases or colonies on Mars, that kind of leaves us with no where to go, doesn’t it?

I’ve always believed that the best defense is a good offense. And we civilians should do what we can to clear the decks for our leaders in the government, and in the the military, by exposing the harmful politicos in our own system, and getting them out of office.

First, we should identify, and get behind candidates who support our war effort, and elect them instead of Quislings [1] [2] and Dhimmis [1] [2] who are either in league with, or are afraid of the enemy.

Here are the candidates in the Presidential Race I feel are best suited for such a thing as taking the fight to the enemy:

  1. Fred Thompson
  2. Duncan Hunter
  3. Mitt Romney
  4. Rudy Giuliani

There are no others beside them. The rest are cowards, or worse.

Our Judicial Despotism

Posted by Thunder Pig on December 29, 2007

As this year comes to a close, I find myself waxing philosophic.

Who we choose as our next President will be crucial in determining whether or not we can walk the dog back from the Living Constitution back to the Written Constitution.

If it is true that a construction of the Constitution by the Supreme Court, no matter how spurious or absurd, no matter how damaging to the organic life of the country, is eo ipso “the law of the land,” unchallengeable even by a law made by the people’s representatives…then, where, in all candor, are we?

If a judicial interpretation of the Constitution is, by definition, the Constitution, why then we are in the grips of a judicial despotism.

L. Brent Bozell,Warren Revolution” pp 110-112

Thus began the Republic’s Second Great Crisis, the first having been the Civil War.

I can guarantee one thing: If Ron Paul recognized the danger posed by The Third Great Jihad, and supported our efforts at stopping it over there before it comes over here, he would be the next President of the United States. His refusal to acknowledge that threat keeps 60% or more of the GOP vote away from him, and unreachable.

This is truly sad, and a great tragedy for the Republic.

At this point, my only option is to support Fred Thompson or Duncan Hunter.

Video–Hunter Out-Performs Field in Dearborn

Posted by Thunder Pig on October 11, 2007

I am going to have bite the bullet, and get a Satellite System just so I can watch this stuff…

The FReeper Thread that led me (eventually) to this video.

Right now, I view (in alphabetical order) the best candidates as Huckabee, Hunter, Romney, and Thompson.

Why Fred Thompson is Possible

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 31, 2007

I have watched this earliest of Presidential Election Cycles with interest, and with growing dismay as the Media has focused almost exclusively on the “Big Three: GOP candidates, none of whom can claim they are conservative without eliciting a belly laugh from me.

Arizona Senator John McCain may have been a conservative at one time, before I started paying attention to politics, but he is not now. My biggest beef with him is the unconstitutional McCain-Feingold Campaign Finance Reform. That criminal piece of legislation has Congress restricting the First Amendment, and so far, the Supreme Court has provided an amen chorus. My second biggest beef with him are his incessant attempts at collaborating with Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy on “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” a piece of legislation that seeks to “legalize” illegal behavior, and would, if passed, cause vastly more harm to this country than McCain-Feingold.

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani has never been a conservative. Some of his views may coincide with conservatism, and other views have undergone the playdough oven treatment to dress them up for the Primary.

My biggest beef with Rudy is his support for Abortion. The Playdough Oven Treatment has transformed this into, “I support a woman’s Right to Choose; but I will appoint Justices that will limit that Right to Choose.” The Cognitive Dissonance on that one issue is enough to threaten a rip in the space-time continuum.

His position on the Second Amendment is similar. He supports the Right to Keep and Bear Arms; but not in a “Big City” like New York City, where the rules of normal space-time do not apply. As someone who has possessed, and used, firearms in a major city, I can assure you that group of armed citizens can, and will, do a better job of policing their neighborhood than the police ever will.

Former Governor of Massachusetts Mitt Romney is not a conservative. Many in his faith are, he is not, unless he has experienced a genuine change of heart.

My biggest beef with him is his support of the Mandatory Universal Health Insurance signed into law by him while Governor.

I am one of the “43 million” uninsured Americans. I am uninsured by choice. I do not play lotteries, nor subscribe to the reverse lottery of Health Insurance that only pays if you lose, and then pays someone else from a common pool. No.
I have used money that would have gone toward premiums, and have invested that money, along with money for my retirement since 1986. When big expenses come, I trade some of my investment for money, then pay for my own care.

That one issue is enough to remove the governor from my short list.

There is one conservative running for the GOP nod, and that is California Representative Duncan Hunter. If he were given the same coverage as the Three Princesses of the GOP, there would be no contest, and no need for Former Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson to be “drafted.”

I am told he is charismatic, and “of the Reagan Mold.” He also has played a character on Law & Order. I am probably one of twelve people in America who has never seen a complete episode of that show. I dislike lawyers, and “courtroom dramas” even more. I also believe that people who watch Court TV of their own free will should be shot as a service to humankind.

The Media have overplayed the candidates that are not palatable to the rank and file of the Republican Party. A candidate like Fred Thompson cannot be ignored by the media, and the charisma factor is necessary to make up for the biased media coverage. The Media played along, and vastly underestimated the man who became the 40th President of the United States, and may fall for it again.

My personal Preference is for Duncan Hunter, with a big possible for Newt Gingrich, who has been playing coy with getting in the race. If Fred gets in the pool with the others, Newt will have zero chance. I’ll have to support Duncan Hunter in the hopes that a strong showing will get him the Veep slot beside a Presidential Fred Thompson. I guess I should order those Thompson/Duncan bumper stickers now.

Like it or not, I’ll have to start covering the 2008 Race as more than something of a diversion.
