Good morning, Alas. C-Span just had Daniel Pipes and now they are talking to Jerome Corsi.
Morning AB and everyone. Thanks, as usual, for the thread.
Morning Bahbah. Pipes was good, as usual. Had to laugh when he refused to respond to that last caller who was trying to start an argument.
Anita. Another strong showing by the once, and future Queen. Dozens of formidable posts among which these jump out. #305. Because of this. There are 15 states in which unemployment came in below 4.0 last month. Eleven of those 15 states (73%) voted for George W. Bush in Nov. 2004. And three of the four remaining states - Maryland, Vermont, and Hawaii - have had Republican governors during the past three years. There are eleven Republican governors among the 15 states. #381. Other Media Nuggets ###### New York Times fourth-quarter net earnings plunge 41 percent, hurt by a weak advertising environment. ###### WB and UPN will be merged into one broadcast network and named CW. This is not like 2 successful businesses merge. Instead of closing the losing one, they are trying make it look otherwise. ###### Media General's (owner of Richmond Times Despatch, Tampa Tribune & 23 others, also 26 tv stations) 4thQuarter earnings plunge 32%. 399 As for others appearing on MSNBC, there was a joke floating around - "If Bin Laden want to be found nowhere, he should be on any of MSNBC show debating something. 6, 12, 13, 26, 36, 60, 72, 85, 98, 149, 208, 223, 210, 274 438, 475, 501,545.
Cboldt. Simply one of the best Freepers to read for Legal or Congressional analysis. Been utterly invaluable in tracking the Alito vote thru the entire process. Was the earliest and most consistent voice that there would be NO filibuster. A passionate critic of the Miers nomination,, Alito's confirmation this week was validation of all the hard work this Freeper did in making the case why the fight for the Court needed to be made. #461. "I have the anti-filibuster vote up to at least 62, by adding Snowe (in the Gang-of-14), Akaka and Dorgan. Notice that filibuster is not the talk of the town?" #500. "It's not foreign surveillance either. And to the charge of it being domestic, I think a good response is "So what? If the terrorists are in the country, should we stop listening" #536. "The President will do what he needs to, in order to protect the country, whether or not Congress is up to speed.Renewal of the Patriot Act is a Congressional activity, and whether or not it's renewed, do you think the President would modify the actions being taken to protect the country". 225, 296, 315, 333, 412, 574, 577, 625, 792, 821, 872, 999, 1054
Getting it all in this week since you will be "busy" next Super Bowl Sunday? Another awesome display by a perpetual top tenner. 332. find it hard to believe that anyone could be so anti-American, but w the socialistic influence that seems to have infiltrated the Dem party over the years and the absolute hatred of Bush by many of them, it would appear that they will do and say anything to get power back. National Security and the War are the big issues on which most Americans were/are supporting the President and which many think helped win the last election. While it's quite unfortunate, it seems that the Dims would rather lose the war so they can take that issue away from the Pres and Pubbies. Many are also still stuck in the 60's and Viet Nam and need to fast forward 40 years to this century to see how a war can be waged. They also did not learn the lessons of VN (if Congress and the American people don't support the war, the troops lose morale and the enemy feels empowered. As has been said,wars aren't lost on the battlefield, they're lost at home (especially when you have the Dims and the MSM spinning the news and only sharing the bad news and not all of the accomplishments). 573 Ah, for the days when EX Presidents kept their big mouths shut! I agree w you - not 1 nickel to Hamas either directly or through the UN - -it would just go the way of the Oil for Food Money and continue to fund homicide bombers. 789. True. Didn't catch the program on Jan 25, but did catch the email segment a day or 2 later on BOR in which people were commenting on his segment on Air America and how Glaser (Real Networks' CEO) was pouring millions into Air America. One said they were going to immediately remove Real Player from their PC. 993. According to capitaleye, McCain got a total receipt was $5k over 2 years from the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians. That said, he's a Sen from AZ, so I highly suspect he gets LOTS of $$$s from tribes. http://www.capitaleye.org/abramoff_recips.asp?sort=N. 1003. Sounds like Fla is doing better than WA state; however, we'll take whatever we can get. They just found about 11,500 dead voters on the registration and over 36,000 that were registered in 2 counties. 1068. All his opponents in the primary have to do is show pictures of McCain and Hitlery in ANWR and the voters will go screaming to his opponent. 1061. "Biden Silent on Reid Stepping Down" 1071. "Yes, they are just like Kerry, gifts that keep on giving." 476, 492, 497, 510, 533, 557, 573 800, 803, 860, 880, 873, 890,897, 902, 913, 921, 925, 926, 943, 944, 982, 993, 1062, 1065, 1094, 116, 1107, 1120. and dozens and dozens of others. A truly awesome Freeper Display!
Every Super Bowl Sunday the Sunday show hosts always ask their guests for a game prediction. They always give some lame ass political reason for their picks.
Thanks Alas Babylon & MNJohnnie.
Domestic Agencies Face Cuts Under Bush Budget ASSOCIATED PRESS via Fox News ^ | Saturday, February 04, 2006 | Associated Press via Fox News

WASHINGTON Domestic priorities like federal aid to schools and health research are squeezed under President Bush's proposed budget for next year, but funding for the Pentagon, the war in Iraq and anti-terrorism efforts get impressive increases.
Monday's budget tome will have a price tag of more than $2.7 trillion. The departments of Education, Commerce, Interior and Energy will see their budgets, on average, frozen or cut slightly below today's already austere levels.

Meanwhile, the New Hampshire bill (345) requiring photo identification to obtain a ballot to vote, is being ignored.
Kind of like looking at the guys left hand as he knocks you out with his right.
C-Span.org is not responding at the present so I can't post the programming-info from there.
Pipes was his usual matter-of-fact, rational self and answered all questions; except for the bigotted, anti-Israel, conspiracy-nut at the end.
Russert will probably pick the Bills.
Wow! Very good catch. Shows you which side of the political aisle NBC's Washington Bureau Chief sits on, doesn't it? Not that he's biased or anything!
Next week he'll probably have the voters for the NFL hall of fame on demanding to know why Thurman Thomas didn't get in.
On more occasions, AP spins the news as negative, and you just showed how conservatives should take or tackle it.
