NEWS FLASH!

It’s over. I feel for Ms. Miers but it’s time for President Bush to ram a hard-line conservative down the Democrats’ throats. Paging Robert Bork. Judge Bork, you have a call from the White House on line 4 ....

WASHINGTON (CNN)

President Bush on Thursday accepted the withdrawal of Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers after weeks of opposition from both liberals and conservatives, who questioned her qualifications and record. In her withdrawal letter to the president, Miers said she was “concerned that the confirmation process presents a burden for the White House and its staff and it is not in the best interest of the country.”

In a statement, Bush said he “reluctantly accepted” her withdrawal. The White House said Miers had to withdraw over concerns that senators wanted documents of privileged discussions between the president and his top lawyer.

“It is clear that senators would not be satisfied until they gained access to internal documents concerning advice provided during her tenure at the White House—disclosures that would undermine a president’s ability to receive candid counsel,” Bush said in the statement. Bush vowed to fill the vacancy “in a timely manner.”

“Harriet Miers’ decision demonstrates her deep respect for this essential aspect of the constitutional separation of powers—and confirms my deep respect and admiration for her,” Bush added. Bush’s decision to nominate Miers, 60, White House counsel and a longtime adviser, had divided his supporters, many of whom wanted a nominee with a clear record of opposition to abortion and solid views on other legal issues important to conservatives.

The White House learned from a key Capitol Hill ally Wednesday night that opposition to the nomination was building, CNN’s Ed Henry reported. In a blunt assessment, Republican Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, Miers’ main advocate in the Senate, told high-level White House aides that the nominee faced stiff opposition from conservatives, and Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist called White House Chief of Staff Andy Card to tell him that Miers did not have the votes to be confirmed, sources told Henry.

However, Ed Gillespie, a Republican strategist heavily involved in Miers’ nomination and the previous one for Chief Justice John Roberts, maintained that the nomination process forced her to withdraw, not opposition from conservative activists. “I don’t think there was a mistake, and we’re not red-faced at all,” Gillespie said. “She, I think, rightly and in a principled manner came to the conclusion that there was about to be a conflict between her role as nominee and the principle she’s espoused as White House counsel and counsel to the president.”

GREED!

$9.92 BILLION Profit In One Quarter

imageimageExxon Mobil Posts New Record for Profit
IRVING, Texas (AP)

Exxon Mobil Corp. had a quarter for the record books. The world’s largest publicly traded oil company said Thursday high oil and natural-gas prices helped its third-quarter profit surge almost 75 percent to $9.92 billion, the largest quarterly profit for a U.S. company ever, and it was the first to ring up more than $100 billion in quarterly sales.

Net income ballooned to $9.92 billion, or $1.58 per share, from $5.68 billion, or 88 cents per share, a year ago. Excluding certain items, earnings were $8.3 billion, or $1.32 per share, versus $6.23 billion, or 96 cents per share, in the 2004 quarter. Analysts polled by Thomson Financial, on average, predicted earnings excluding items of $1.38 per share. Revenue grew to $100.72 billion from $76.38 billion in the prior-year period.

Howard Silverblatt, equity analyst at Standard & Poor’s, said both the net income and sales figures are all-time records for publicly traded U.S. companies. The hurricanes slashed Exxon Mobil’s U.S. production volumes by 50,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day, down nearly 5 percent year-over-year, costing the company $45 million before taxes. The company said total daily production slipped to 2.45 million barrels of oil equivalent from 2.51 million barrels.

“Following the hurricanes, Exxon Mobil maximized gasoline production from all of our refineries which were operating in the U.S., and increased imports from overseas affiliates to meet U.S. demand,” said Chairman Lee R. Raymond. Earnings from U.S. upstream operations increased by $498 million to $1.67 billion, while U.S. downstream earnings jumped $548 million to $1.11 billion. In the U.S. and abroad, income from the company’s chemicals segment declined by $537 million to $472 million, as raw materials costs squeezed margins.

The company cautioned that reduced volumes and higher costs will also hurt the fourth quarter. Shares of Irving-based Exxon Mobil rose 56 cents, or 1 percent, to $56.76 in early trading on the New York Stock Exchange. The stock has traded in a 52-week range between $48.25 and $65.96.

Quote of the Day

The Salt Lake Tribune has a wonderful quote from First Lt. Bruce Bishop, who explains that he plans to re-enlist in the Utah National Guard:

“because as I look around at the state of this nation and see all of the weak little pampered candy-asses that are whining about this or protesting that, I’d be afraid to leave the fate of this nation entirely up to them.”

Go get ‘em Bruce!

Apologizing For Christianity?

I am stunned! I am outraged! I am speechless! What happened to the America I grew up in? The land where people weren’t afraid to go to church or to admit it? The land where Judeo-Christian morals and beliefs were the bedrock of our legal system? The land where the Boy Scouts was considered a decent organization? The land where the military was respected and supported?

Have I been transported to another dimension where things are all haywire?

In this strange new dimension I find myself in, students in California schools are forced to take classes in the Islamic religion, the homosexual lifestyle is celebrated and encouraged and now finally, a professional football player goes to a school to help motivate students and give the students a presentation on morality and decency .... only to find out he has to apologize for having talked about his Christian faith and how it has helped him avoid drugs, rape and other seedy vices that so many professional athletes are into. Two things to take note of here: (1) this happened in New Jersey and (2) The ACLU is involved.

imageimageApology Follows Christian-Themed Assembly
NEWARK (AP)

The principal of a public high school apologized to parents for allowing a Christian-themed assembly that featured two pro football players, saying he was misled about what the presentation would cover. Newark High School Principal Emmanuel Caulk wrote in a letter that he expected the talk by Philadelphia Eagles players Tra Thomas and Thomas Tapeh to focus on “values, choices and challenges that adolescents face in today’s society.”

He said promotional material used the name “Tra Thomas Promotional Tour,” and that he did not know Thomas was founder and spokesman for Athletes United for Christ. A projection of that organization’s logo was shown throughout Tuesday’s assembly, and the athletes urged students to attend an upcoming rally and concert at a Philadelphia-area Christian center. Some students and parents complained.

“As a parent of a child in a public school, I am uncomfortable with the fact that an evangelical organization can come into a public assembly that is a promotional event for an evangelical Christian concert,” Becky Ashley told The (Wilmington) News Journal. Thomas said he assumed everyone knew his promotional tour was connected to his organization but that he has heard similar complaints after speaking at other public schools.

“What we’re trying to do is to help the kids make better decisions in life. I guess I understand,” why some people objected, he said, “because you have other religions there. But we’re not preaching to the kids.” Promoter Angela Brown said she had made it clear what Thomas would be talking about and the organization with which he was affiliated. Caulk disputed that.

Drewry Fennell, executive director of the Delaware chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, said such miscommunications reflects a nationwide trend. “Organizations like this one across the country are gaining access to schools through the famous people and entertainment value and then using those opportunities to proselytize,” she said. “These organizations sometimes take advantage of the schools’ desire to provide compelling experiences for their students.”

Thomas said he’s just trying to help. “I’m just trying to get them to identify with me, the person, rather than just Tra Thomas, the football player, so we can relate to each other better,” he said. “And my Christianity is a big part of what I am.”

Kerry Wants To Start The Clock

Senator John Kerry (who served in Vietnam, in case you haven’t heard) has decided to start the clock ticking in Iraq. He wants to set a timetable for troop withdrawal before the insurgents are put down and the Iraqi army is prepared to take over. As usual, Kerry is in a big hurry to go nowhere. First he can’t decide whether he wants to or not, then can’t decide whether to spend money on it, then suddenly is preparing for premature withdrawal. If Kerry’s sex life follows the same pattern, Teresa must be very unhappy ...

imageimageKerry Urges U.S. to Start Withdrawal From Iraq
Senator’s Timetable Specifies 15 Months
(WASHINGTON POST)

Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) yesterday called for the withdrawal of 20,000 troops from Iraq by year’s end as the first step in a proposal that would significantly reduce U.S. military forces in the region over the next 15 months. Kerry offered a middle ground between those advocating an immediate drawdown of the more than 150,000 U.S. troops stationed in Iraq and the Bush administration, which has declined to set a timetable for a decreased U.S. military presence.

“The way forward in Iraq is not to pull out precipitously or merely promise to stay ‘as long as it takes,’ “ Kerry said during an address at Georgetown University. “We must instead simultaneously pursue both a political settlement and the withdrawal of American combat forces.” Kerry, the Democratic presidential nominee in 2004, is the highest-profile figure in either party to back a timetable for withdrawal in Iraq. Kerry’s decision to announce his proposal comes amid a crop of national opinion polls showing the war growing increasingly unpopular among Democrats, independents and even Republicans.

Kerry is not the first Democratic senator to call for a phased pullout. In mid-August, Russell Feingold (Wis.) set December 2006 as the end date for a significant U.S. military presence in Iraq. Both Kerry and Feingold are weighing presidential runs in 2008. Sen. Carl M. Levin (Mich.), ranking Democrat on the Armed Services Committee, recently suggested developing a timeline for a contingent withdrawal plan designed to give Iraqis more incentive to take control of their country. His counterpart on the House Armed Services Committee, Rep. Ike Skelton (D-Mo.), has similarly suggested bringing U.S. troops home as Iraqi forces build.

Under Kerry’s plan, the first wave of U.S soldiers would leave after Iraq’s planned Dec. 15 parliamentary elections, with the “bulk of American combat forces” withdrawn by the end of 2006. Bush administration officials and military commanders have strongly resisted the idea of setting any timetable, in part because the insurgency has remained active and large swaths of Iraq remain insecure. Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld has said any withdrawal will be “conditions-based,” relying on the success of the Iraqi government, the status of the insurgency, and the strength of the Iraqi security forces.

Sweep!

After 88 years, another curse is finally over. The Chicago White Sox won the World Series last night in a four-game sweep over the Houston Astros. There is now only one curse left to be lifted in Major League Baseball and it’s on the north side of Chicago ...

image


HOUSTON (MLB)

This victory belonged to the entire city of Chicago and a nation of euphoric White Sox fans. Sure, the White Sox 1-0 whitewashing of Houston on Wednesday completed the 19th four-game sweep in World Series history and gave the franchise its first title since 1917. And team chairman Jerry Reinsdorf and vice chairman Eddie Einhorn were able to hoist the championship trophy for the first time in their 25-year ownership reign.

But Wednesday’s effort had far greater ramifications than simply what was played out on the baseball field. It was a victory for the grandparents and great grandparents, who first came into the world when manager Pants Rowland led a group of players named Buck, Swede, Chick, Happy, Red, Nemo and “Shoeless Joe” to the White Sox last World Series title some nine decades ago. It was for the parents who took their kids to Comiskey Park, old and new, U.S. Cellular Field, and heck, even Wrigley Field, hoping against hope that one day they could talk about that special championship season in Chicago.

The win even was for the kids, who have no idea what baseball misery is really all about, having waited only four, five or six years, in some instances, to watch one of their baseball teams celebrate greatness. And this just in for the doubters, the skeptics who didn’t believe the White Sox would get to the playoffs, let alone advance. Ozzie Guillen’s crew is pretty darn good. As postseason success goes, they are almost unparalleled. With Wednesday’s win, the White Sox finished the 2005 playoffs at 11-1. This mark ties the South Siders with the 1999 Yankees for the second-best postseason winning percentage of all time. They only trail the 1976 Reds (7-0).

“We know about the 11-1 record, and we would have liked to go 11-0,” said White Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski, drenched in champagne, but still able to flash a mischievous smile. “But we won enough games, and that’s all that matters.” “A lot of people doubted us in Spring Training,” added White Sox pitcher Mark Buehrle, who started Game 2 of the World Series and saved Game 3. “Kenny [Williams, GM] and Ozzie obviously knew what they were doing, and it paid off.”

Chicago also won 16 of its final 17 games, dating back to Sept. 28 in Detroit. And they didn’t lose a road game during the entire postseason, covering six games. Simply put, it was utter domination—even if the final scores didn’t always support the description in theory.

It Never Ends

Israel pulled out of Gaza strip and turned the whole strip of land over to the Paleswinians. In return the Paleswinians decided to forgo further violence against Israel, no more suicide bombings and peace reigned in the Middle East ... well, it was a good dream while it lasted. Does anyone out there still believe the Paleswinians and their Islamofascist sponsors will ever stop this mindless murder spree?

Suppose they kill all the Jews? What difference does that make to you and me since we’re not Jews? Why not just let the bloody Islamofascists murder all the Jewish men, women and children? Why should we care about the Jews?

“When Hitler attacked the Jews I was not a Jew, therefore I was not concerned. And when Hitler attacked the Catholics, I was not a Catholic, and therefore, I was not concerned. And when Hitler attacked the unions and industrialists, I was not a member of the unions and I was not concerned. Then, Hitler attacked me and the Protestant church—and there was nobody left to be concerned.”

-- Reverend Martin Niemoller, German Protestant Pastor, 1892-1984, speaking before the US Congress in 1968
(Congressional Record 14 October 1968, page 31636)

Any more questions?



imageimageBombing at Israeli Food Stand Kills Five
HADERA, Israel (AP)
October 26, 2005, 11:28 AM EDT

A Palestinian suicide bomber standing in line at a crowded falafel stand blew himself up Wednesday in this central Israeli town, killing five people and injuring 21, police and rescuers said. The bombing—the first suicide attack in nearly two months—eroded hopes that Israel’s Gaza pullout would revive peace talks. Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for the blast, saying it was in retaliation for the killing of a top militant leader by Israeli troops earlier this week.

“This is another link in the murderous chain of terrorism served up by the Palestinian Authority, which continues to do nothing to stop these terror attacks,” said Israeli government spokesman David Baker. “The Palestinian Authority should once and for all disarm and dismantle the terror organization.” Ambulances rushed to the scene after the explosion at the falafel stand, which was next to the central bus station. Rescuers treated the wounded in a nearby field.

“Body parts reached all the way until my apartment building. The damage is really great,” witness Eidan Akiva told Channel Ten TV, saying he lived 100 yards from the blast. “All the stalls alongside just fell apart. The windows are all broken. It looks like a war was here,” he said. “This is a very crowded place, very central place. We never expected that this would happen. We thought our world was good but apparently we were wrong.”

Israel’s withdrawal from the Gaza Strip last month has raised hopes for a return to Mideast peacemaking after five years of bloodshed. However, the sides have failed to capitalize on the pullout’s momentum, and Wednesday’s bombing appeared to hurt prospects for a return to talks.

Iranian Insanity

Meanwhile in Iran, the Mad MOOS-lims are rattling sabers and foaming at the mouth over ... Israel. The President of Iran is violently angry at Israel for oppressing Arab people, bombing mosques and .... wait a minute, none of that happened. He’s calling for jihad against Israel simply because .... Jews exist. What a piece of work these asshats are. Listen to this incredible crap from the “Religion of Peace” ...

Iranian Leader: Israel Will Be Destroyed
TEHERAN (AP)

Iran’s hard-line president called for Israel to be “wiped off the map” and said a new wave of Palestinian attacks will destroy the Jewish state, state-run media reported Wednesday. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad also denounced attempts to recognize Israel or normalize relations with it.

“There is no doubt that the new wave (of attacks) in Palestine will wipe off this stigma (Israel) from the face of the Islamic world,” Ahmadinejad told students Wednesday during a Tehran conference called “The World without Zionism.”

“Anybody who recognizes Israel will burn in the fire of the Islamic nation’s fury, any (Islamic leader) who recognizes the Zionist regime means he is acknowledging the surrender and defeat of the Islamic world,” Ahmadinejad said.

Ahmadinejad also repeated the words of the founder of Iran’s Islamic revolution, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, who called for the destruction of Israel. “As the Imam said, Israel must be wiped off the map,” said Ahmadinejad, who came to power in August.

Ahmadinejad referred to Israel’s recent withdrawal from the Gaza Strip as a “trick,” saying Gaza is part of the Palestinian territories and the withdrawal was meant to make Islamic states acknowledge Israel.

You can thank Jimmy Carter for the bulls**t coming from Iran. Thanks to the Peanut President, back in the 1970’s, these jerks took over Iran and now we’re having to pay for Carter’s stupidity.

Warfare In The Senate

Things are getting a might nasty on the Senate floor as Democrats and Republicans duked it out uesterday over the Valerie Plame (did you know she was a CIA agent?) kerfuffle. Democrats put forth a bill to strip Karl Rove of his security clearance and Republicans responded by offering their own bill to strip Democratic Senators Harry Reid and Dick Durbin of their clearances. Both bills failed as cooler (?) heads prevailed. However, the war goes on, fueled by protestors outside the building and hate-mongering groups like MoveOn.org pushing for Rove’s resignation. Are we having fun yet ...?

Rove Fight Escalates
WASHINGTON (THE WASHINGTON TIMES)

The partisan fight over Karl Rove exploded onto the Senate floor yesterday, with Democrats trying to strip him of his security clearance and Republicans retaliating by trying to strip the chamber’s two top Democrats of theirs. The moves, which came as amendments to a spending bill, both failed, but not before each side blamed the other for “juvenile” behavior and for poisoning a well of good feelings they said had existed in the past few weeks.

Some senators said the entire exercise was wrong. “There might be a contest between which of these amendments is more poorly drafted,” said Sen. Jeff Sessions, Alabama Republican, who voted against both amendments. “We should not be doing this. This is exactly why the American public holds Congress in such low esteem right now,” said Sen. Susan Collins, Maine Republican, who also opposed both.

Meanwhile, former Ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV, whose wife, Valerie Plame, and her identity as a cover CIA employee is the central issue, came to the Capitol to call for President Bush to fire Mr. Rove. “I believe it is time for Karl Rove to go and time for this president to live up to his promises that anyone involved in this leak would be fired,” Mr. Wilson said during a press conference with Sen. Charles E. Schumer, New York Democrat, steps away from the Senate floor.

A former CIA covert agent who supervised Mrs. Plame early in her career yesterday took issue with her identification as an “undercover agent,” saying that she worked for more than five years at the agency’s headquarters in Langley and that most of her neighbors and friends knew that she was a CIA employee. 

“She made no bones about the fact that she was an agency employee and her husband was a diplomat,” Fred Rustmann, a covert agent from 1966 to 1990, told The Washington Times.

Majority Leader Bill Frist, Tennessee Republican, called Democrats’ amendment “purely a political amendment” and then submitted his own. It would have stripped clearance from federal officeholders who make “reference to a classified Federal Bureau of Investigation report on the floor of the United States Senate, or any federal officeholder that makes a statement based on a FBI agent’s comments which is used as propaganda by terrorist organizations thereby putting our servicemen and women at risk.”

The former is a reference to Mr. Reid, who mentioned the FBI file of one of Mr. Bush’s judicial nominees, and the latter is a reference to Mr. Durbin, whose comparison of U.S. interrogation techniques at Guantanamo Bay to Nazi and Soviet regimes was cited in Middle Eastern press, including Al Jazeera. Mr. Frist’s amendment failed 64-33, with 20 Republicans joining Democrats and one independent in voting against it, while Mr. Reid’s amendment failed on a party-line vote, 53-44.
