Last week, the world was told that Syria’s President Bashar Assad is poised to use chemical weapons against his own people in a last-ditch effort to retain power despite his growing unpopularity.[SNIP]In fact, there has been a story around since 2006 that Syria inherited a large chemical weapons stash from its neighbor Iraq when Hussein tried to rid his country of evidence of WMDs just before the 2003 invasion that toppled him from power.That story has received blessed little attention over the years in large part because it would have given credence to the claims of the Bush White House
Comments: Assad equals Saddam equals Morsi equals Khadafy equals Khameini equals madman. No matter which side we are on in the Middle East we are on the wrong side unless we stand with Israel.
An entire industry was built around the "Bush lied, people died" fabrication propagated by the Democrats and their media court eunuchs. In this myth, we learned that Arab dictators are innocent victims of bloodthirsty Republican cowboy-presidents, victims who would never dream of stockpiling WMDs or hiding them from UN inspectors. The people who spread these lies are now in charge of national security. I believe 0% of what they say.
I´m not going to worry about Syria´s WMDs until I see Chemical Ali surface there.
Bush has been vindicated on lots of things.If we had an honest media,his blame for the economy wouldn´t even exist.When you have morons claiming 4.5% unemployment was a failed policy or tax cuts don´t work,only government leeches who don´t want to work believe it.
Now,the more people who get shoved into permanent unemployed status,it actually drives Obama´s approvals up.
Up here in MA we have a retired colonel(?)Hunt who has stated unequivocally that those weapons in syria are NOT saddam´s. His reasoning? If they were saddam´s, Pres. Bush would have told us. No one did a follow up question to ask him what all those caravans leaving iraq were carrying.
Some years ago I read a book written by someone whose name I have forgotten but it must have been Gen Sada because the author had been in the Iraqi air force, had defied orders to execute, just as Sada says, and described the planes flying to Syria with weapons of mass destruction. If all this was not known, it should have been known. I read the book and I certainly do not have access to any information unavailable to our government.
In September, 2012, the U.S. government made a special request at the U.N. for help in dealing with Syria´s possession of WMDs (various forms of chemical weapons) that the Zero administration said had been moved to Syria from Iraq just before the Iraq war. President George W. Bush listened too closely to the critics on Iraq, kept postponing the invasion, waiting for UN sanctions, and apporval for the invasion. That gave time for Saddam Hussein to send the weapons to Syria. I suspect that the Bush administration didn´t say anything about the WMDs after the invasion because it would have made them look bad for delaying the war.
I watched a program, again with cspan and the weapons to be used on the USA is in the form of sarin - you cannot smell or taste it but it will kill you in minutes. It can be disguised completely and the mooslims do not care if they die for allah. We need to move them out and quit trying to be chummy with our enemies.
I remember seeing videos of the caravans moving stuff from Iraq to Syria...may on the Hannity and Combs show, or elsewhere. I would puyll my hair out when the media said Bush was lying....no the media was lying and they still are!! Why can´t we sue them? God Bless you W!
I think it was the Swedes that released the video of the conga line of trucks going from Iraq to Syria before the war started. The video disappeared extremely fast. Never seen the media move so quick on that one.
The left in this country will never ever be able to admit that Bush was correct. There is not enough duct tape in the country to keep their heads from exploding. I suspect they would vote tea party before admitting that Bush was correct on WMD´s.
C? Swati tolja. and tolja and tolja. Sada said it, and Loftus and others said that the Russians helped Saddam get WMD out of Iraq, and a third author stated that, at the time of our invasion, Saddam´s sons transported weapons from a site north of Baghdad across the border to al Qaim in Syria, where there were transhipped to - I believe- the Bekaa valley.
Shame on the naysayers and the sheep who believed them. Shame on the liberal press and the Democratic swine who were willing to smear George Bush. Someone will pay the butcher´s bill.
I would like to join in too. G. W. Bush was a great president that kept us safe, rich and fully employed. For eight years he kept the Democrats away from redistributing us away to the undeserving freeloaders.
Merry Christmas W. and Laura Bush, and many thanks.
Remember my long repeated motto..."We´re surrounded by idiots"!
Couple that with a lamestream lefty media that lies on a daily basis...("the daily drumbeat from dawn until well after midnight") and you have a bunch of idiots following closely and believing a bunch of liars. Then top that with an administration run by a thug liar Muslim-loving Alinsky Marxist and his demented old idiot buddy and there you have it! The perfect scenario for this story to have legs! Get it?
I´ll never stop respecting GW for what he said and what he did, and I´ll NEVER believe a word written about him from the ass-press liars! They lie and swab the rump of Obama because they´re his lap dogs--Liberals who hate people just like US!~
Gee, I seem to recall a President named Bush whose administration stated that Iraqi chemical weapons had been moved to Syria. This was pooh-poohed by the omniscient infallible in the media. Is it just possible that the media were mistaken?
Check with the military . Many weapons were destroyed, but in comabt recording those events was not feasible. Chemical weapons in Syria? Yeah and rubber necklace kommerade willy and mandella are Baptist who love America.
Ala-Akbar yaw´all taxedpayers (sic) and Hail de curtsying queer bar queen Ø´blow the blamer´s imam of choice moochamad ahmadinejad. Dis bees ara seasons greetings from your feral gummyt bureaucracy and media pterodactyls
Bush didn´t lie, but the MSM said he did, and the low information voters are too dumb to know the diffence.

Not only were chemical/biological weapons moved from Iraq to Syria, our troops in the first Gulf War also were exposed to some of these weapons. I know of more than one Gulf War veteran who has given birth to children with handicaps caused by Saddam´s chemicals. Furthermore, troops were making pre-war sperm donations in case they were exposed to chemicals which cause birth defects. Sadly, some handicapped children were not diagnosed until after a younger child was born, and military parents had more than one handicapped child. I also know of Gulf War vets who had serious post war health problems caused by chemical/biological exposures. Saddam sowed what he reaped.
My concern is that Assad and others are willing to use chemical weapons on American soil as well, hence Obama´s three week vacation to Hawaii. Obama is "getting out of Dodge" for the apocalypse date -- may we ask WHY???
Climate change is going to kill your grandkids? You might want to take that “science” with a grain of salt — literally.Some of you probably missed it, but the Centers for Disease Control announced earlier this month that consuming reasonable amounts of salt is not dangerous at all, despite decades of “science” claiming that salting up your steak and potatoes was tantamount to a death sentence.[SNIP] Which brings us back to global warming, also known as climate change. Every day there is some story about how horrible life on Earth is now
Happy birthday to me—if I have lived that long.[SNIP] I’m supposed to turn 58 today,which is not very significant for most people,but when I read so many obituaries for so many other people who didn’t make it to 58, I am definitely willing to get a little excited about good health, good cheer and good luck,as I rev up for the big push to 60.And as the world around me seems to be spinning out of control, I am also pondering the nature of good and evil and what responsibility I have in the few years left to me.
The so-called “comprehensive immigration reform bill” is just the latest turn of the screw in the ongoing campaign to fundamentally transform America into a socialist republic.Sadly, it may just be a matter of time before Congress surrenders its responsibility to protect our country and passes this bill, almost certainly resulting in a new America that will be less affluent, less secure, less educated and less relevant, but certainly more international in character. What’s funny — ha-ha funny in a sick humor kind of way, but also rather peculiar funny — is that our Congress doesn’t seem to give a damn
“Let me assure you that the trifling problem you brought us today is already put safely to bed... The memorandum itself is now being thoroughly and plausibly denied by its authors and blamed on an overzealous local bureaucracy somewhere in the barren Midwest.” If the government were running surveillance on itself rather than the AP, this quote could almost have been taken from a wiretap at IRS headquarters in Washington, D.C., just after word of the agency’s targeting of Tea Party conservatives hit the street. [SNIP]Actually, the quote is from Glenn Beck’s 2010 thriller, “The Overton Window”
Have the terrorists already won? Did the enormity of 9/11 somehow short-circuit our brains so that we now view smaller levels of political violence as somehow acceptable? Or are we being intentionally conditioned to excuse terrorism as a legitimate means of effecting social change? [SNIP] The evidence is overwhelming that, whether intentionally or not, Western society has become habituated to violence that in previous generations would have spurred not just outrage but immediate action.Call it the terrorist’s best friend —the ultimate reason why terrorism is effective in the first place— a sort of Stockholm syndrome response to violence.
On Monday May 6, I stumbled across an Internet news story in the Washington Times about a threatened cyberterror attack that was scheduled to occur on Tuesday, May 7.According to this story by Shaun Waterman, the Department of Homeland Security had sent a bulletin to “the private sector” [SNIP] I am not a bank, a major corporation or a government agency, so although I found the story interesting, I promptly put it out of my mind—at least until I woke up the following morning, May 7, and discovered that my Internet service was down
“The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars,/But in ourselves, that we are underlings.”—Shakespeare, “Julius Caesar” (Act I,Scene ii.)The ambiguity of Shakespeare’s famous tragedy about the end of the Roman republic and the onset of dictatorship teaches us that no matter how much we yearn for clarity, there is always an element of uncertainty in the fate of nations.Motive is subjective. Intention is debatable. Facts are elusive.[SNIP]But when you get right down to it, the fault for the nation’s general ignorance about the Benghazi coverup does not belong to the media;it belongs to ourselves.
I got an e-mail from Democratic lobbyist John Podesta last week that began “Dear Friend,” so I knew it had arrived at my inbox by accident. Podesta was the last chief of staff during the Bill Clinton presidency, and is currently the chair of the Center for American Progress, which as you can tell by the name is one of those groups trying to undermine our nation’s values and traditions under the guise of marching us into the 21st century’s version of “1984.” (Are we there yet?) One of the best levers the progressives have found to muscle us
On Friday, we were warned by Sen. Chuck Schumer not to “jump to conclusions” about “the events in Boston” or “to try to conflate those events” with the immigration reform bill hammered out by Schumer and the other seven senators who have appropriately identified themselves as gangsters. Schumer, a N.Y. Democrat, and the bipartisanly incorrect “Gang of Eight” unveiled their massive, 844-page immigration “reform” bill last week and hoped to rush it to a vote before anyone even knew what was in it.[SNIP] so let’s call it what it is: The Illegal Immigrant Legalization Bill.
Before the rise to power of the Nazis in Germany — which was arguably Europe’s most civilized country — there were approximately 9.5 million Jews living in Europe. As a result of Hitler’s genocidal policies, two out of three Jews were killed over the next 20 years. [SNIP]Which brings us to the carpet under which the contemporary world is sweeping the remains of murdered Christians, along with their living cousins — the falsely imprisoned, persecuted, and tortured — who survive for now among an increasingly hostile Muslim population in the Middle East and elsewhere.
When I was a kid, women were demanding “Equal Pay for Equal Work.” Somewhere along the way in the last 50 years, that has been conveniently truncated to “Equal Pay— Period.”At least, that SHOULD be the slogan — if truth in advertising laws could be applied to political posturing — because Equal Pay Day, which falls on Tuesday, April 9, is not about equal pay for equal work, but just about increasing women’s pay arbitrarily as a form of Marxist social engineering.The press release I got from the (George Soros-funded) National Partnership for Women & Families lamented
Last week, I somewhat audaciously proposed a “Restoration Amendment” to free the U.S. Constitution from decades of judicial precedent and neglect and return it as much as possible to the original intent of our nation’s founders.Many readers were grateful for the effort and pitched in with their own ideas for how the federal leviathan could be tamed, but many others were dismal and dismayed — certain that any honest effort to reform the nation was already a lost cause, and that the Constitution was already good enough if only people would follow it. Probably all of us who are concerned about
FORNEY, Texas - George Zimmerman, the former Florida neighborhood watch leader cleared of all charges in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, was pulled over for speeding in North Texas on Sunday, CBS DFW reports. According to the station, Zimmerman was armed when officers pulled him over on Highway 80 in Forney, east of Dallas. (Snip) The officer reportedly did not recognize Zimmerman, who was driving a Honda pickup. Zimmerman told the officer he was armed and was then told to put the weapon in his glove compartment, according to the station.
Arizona Sen. John McCain was the Republican Party´s 2008 presidential nominee and he still wants the keys to the Oval Office. But he is beginning to sound more like a fan of likely 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. "She´s a rock star," he said in a newly released interview. "She has, maybe not glamour, but certainly the aura of someone widely regarded throughout the world," he added in a reference to her work as secretary of State. McCain, reportedly trying to win back his reputation as a GOP maverick, was asked by the New Republic
President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that
Gotta figure her lead would be even bigger without Joe Miller in the field here. Her nomination for the taking? Alaska should be a top tier pick up opportunity for Senate Republicans next year…but their top choice of a candidate is Sarah Palin. 36% of GOP primary voters in the state say they’d like Palin to be their standard bearer against Mark Begich to 26% for Mead Treadwell, 15% for Dan Sullivan, and 12% for Joe Miller.
Embattled Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner and an attorney in the Federal Election Commission’s general counsel’s office appear to have twice colluded to influence the record before the FEC’s vote in the case of a conservative non-profit organization, according to e-mails unearthed by the House Ways and Means Committee and obtained exclusively by National Review Online. The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,
Sen. John McCain — a Democrat? There was confusion Wednesday after the Arizona Republican mistakenly strolled into President Obama’s meeting with Senate Democrats at the Capitol. The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.
The former commander of special operations in Northern Africa told a closed-door briefing today that he was largely detached from events the night of the Benghazi attack as he was traveling at the time. The testimony of Col. George H. Bristol, USMC, Former Commander, Joint Special Operations Task Force-Trans Sahara, Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command Africa, had been eagerly anticipated by members of Congress. Originally, lawmakers had been told by the Defense Department that he had retired — the actual date is Aug. 1, an “administrative error” according to the Pentagon — and that they didn’t have
In an interview on National Public Radio (NPR), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said her new agenda for women will give mothers access to day care so they can “earn without carrying the burden of child care.” During the interview, aired on Weekend Edition Sunday, Pelosi spoke about her newly announced agenda, which is on her website, and is titled, “When Women Succeed, America Succeeds: An Economic Agenda for Women and Families,” a plan that includes universal pre-school and access to day care for working women, and an increase in the minimum wage.
Karl Rove and more than one hundred Republican donors sent a letter to Republican members of Congress on Tuesday, urging them to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill that would include, among other provisions, granting "legal status" to illegal aliens who meet certain criteria. Anticipating that lawmakers will face resistance to the bill when they go home for the August recess, the letter marks the escalation of a campaign in which Republican leaders and donors are pressuring House Republicans to act on an immigration reform bill.
Mark Levin, who hosts one of America´s top radio talk shows and is considered by supporters to be the people´s pundit on the Constitution, is rallying his 8.5 million-strong audience to demand an historic convention of state governments to halt the "oppressive power" of the federal government. The author of two New York Times bestsellers on the threats to the Constitution, Levin hopes his latest, "The Liberty Amendments," out mid-August, will spark the state lawmakers to tap a rarely used Constitutional provision to institute measures that would brake President Obama´s use of executive orders, bar thousand-page laws and
No matter how much you may hope for it, it seems unlikely that you´ll be using the phrase "Senator Sarah Palin" with any great regularity in 2015. A new poll indicates that the former Alaska governor is about as popular in the state as Barack Obama — which is to say, not very popular at all. But even more surprising, while the former vice presidential candidate has made Alaska a central part of her public image, the state´s residents split on the question of whether Palin is all that Alaskan. Conducted by Public Policy Polling,
In her first speech since taking over the Environmental Protection Agency, Gina McCarthy came out swinging Tuesday and promised to ramp up the aggressive climate change agenda laid out by President Obama.(snip)“Can we stop talking about environmental regulations killing jobs? Please, at least for today,” she said during remarks at Harvard Law School. “We need to cut carbon pollution to grow jobs. We need to cut carbon pollution to strengthen the economy. Let’s talk about it positively. Let’s approach this as an opportunity of a lifetime. There are too many lifetimes at stake.”
