I won't insult your intelligence by suggesting that you really believe what you just said.
William F. Buckley, Jr.
Westchester County District Attorney Jeanine Pirro blasted Senator Hillary Clinton on Wednesday for failing to obtain enough homeland security funding for New York State, saying Clinton's performance on 9/11 issues would be a key target of her campaign.
"I walked Ground Zero the day after 9/11 with a friend who was looking for her husband," Pirro told ABC Radio host Sean Hannity. "I know what can happen in New York and all of the trauma that comes from the problem with homeland security and the fact that we don't have enough money to defend ourselves the way New Yorkers need to."
Pirro vowed in the next breath: "Make no mistake, I will attack [Hillary's] record. Her record is going to be a target of my campaign."
Pirro also zeroed in on Mrs. Clinton's economic policies, saying:
"Here's a woman who came to New York and she said, 'I'm going to promise 200,000 upstate jobs for upstate New Yorkers.' She didn't deliver on that promise - and we're going to hold her to that."
"You've got a woman here who wants to tax New Yorkers," Pirro added. "She thinks that taxes are good for New York."
Though the press has portrayed Clinton as a Senate workhorse, Pirro said her record of real accomplishments is thin. "You don't submit seven bills and say, 'OK, I did my job' - even though they all died in committee," the Westchester Republican fumed.
While Mrs. Clinton's failures on homeland security and job creation would be fair game, Pirro vowed not to practice the politics of personal destruction, saying, "This is not going to be about personal attacks, because this job is too important."
I have the solution for the prevention of hijackings, while at the same time getting our airline industry back on its feet. Since men of the Muslim religion are not allowed to look at naked women, we should replace all of our female flight attendants with strippers. Muslims would be afraid to get on the planes for fear of seeing a naked woman, and of course, every businessman in this country would start flying again in the hope of seeing a naked woman. We would have no more hijackings and the airline industry would have record sales. Now why didn't Bush think of this? Why do I still have to do everything myself?
In case we find ourselves starting to believe all the
and negativity about our government
and its policies, we should remember
England's Prime Minister Tony Blair's words to his own people.
During a recent interview, Prime Minister Tony Blair of Great
Britain was asked by one of his parliament members as to why
he believes so much in America ...
and does he think America is on the right track?
"A simple way to take measure of a country is to look at how
many want in ... and how many want out."
Clinton Charging $15,000 for Poverty Conference
If you want to attend ex-President Clinton's upcoming conference on solving global poverty, you better not be poor yourself.
The web site for the so-called "Clinton Global Initiative" - set for Sept. 15-17 in Manhattan - is hawking tickets for $15,000 a-piece. For that princely sum, "participants will play a role in deciding on the programs that the Initiative will fund throughout the year."
"This nonpartisan conference will bring together a diverse and select group of current and former heads of state, business leaders, noteworthy academicians, and key NGO representatives to participate in a series of dynamic interactive workshops," the web site claims.
"The group will strategize on the best methods to reduce poverty; use religion as a force for reconciliation and conflict resolution; implement new business strategies and technologies to combat climate change; and strengthen governance."
The ex-president himself - who used to say he was obsessed with getting Osama bin Laden - says he's found a new obsession.
"In my life now, I am obsessed with only two things," he now insists. "I don't want to anybody die before their time and I don't want to see good people spend their energies without making a difference."
Attendance at the CGI is supposedly by invitation only. But for those willing to pony up the $15 large, Mr. Clinton is apparently willing to make an exception.
The CGI web site notes:
"If you have not received an invitation and would like to see if you are eligible to attend, please complete this form and a representative of the event will contact you."
Great food, terrific ribs, huge portions, killer fries. Our waitress supplied us with an endful supply of moist towelletes to clean up after the perfect hot wings, the delicious ribs and any other messes anyone made. The only complaint I can muster is about the pipsqueak water glasses. The desserts were yummy too. The triple chocolate cake was good as well as huge. Good thing I was sharing it with a hottie. The fries were crunchy and good....maybe they were double fried or something. The relaxed atmosphere which included big screen tvs playing sports events prompted a number of outstanding philosophical discussions. Phil's gets a high rating on my system. I would even return.

Clinton: Impeachment Not Serious
Ex-President Bill Clinton said Monday that he had to assure world leaders that there was nothing seriously wrong with America after the Congress impeached him in 1998.
"During that time, a lot of world leaders would ask, 'What is going on? Is this serious?'" he told New York magazine. "I kept assuring them that nothing bad had happened to America," he recalled, "but that we periodically went through spasms."
Interviewed while traveling in Africa, the ex-president claimed, "Africans saw [my impeachment] for exactly what it was: an abuse of power."
"They got it here," he insisted.
The magazine noted that "seven years later, the ordeal of his impeachment still has a vibrant, ever-present life in Clinton's mind."
...AND THAT'S NOT ALL...THERE'S MORE FROM THE TRUTH-CHALLANGED CLINTON...SOMEBODY TELL HIM THAT HISTORY IS ETCHED IN STONE...YOU CAN REVISIT IT...BUT YOU CAN'T REVISE IT TO CREATE A LEGACY...IT IS WHAT IT IS...HISTORY!
...AND THEY WANT ANOTHER CLINTON ADMINISTRATION...

Clinton Lawyers: Mohamed Atta Off Limits
A year before the 9/11 attacks, lawyers at the Clinton White House told a group military intelligence officers that information they had developed on 9/11 ringleader Mohamed Atta could not be shared with the FBI, saying of Atta himself: "You can't even touch him - it doesn't matter what information you have."
Rep. Curt Weldon, who helped develop the military intelligence group code-named "Able Danger," delivered the bombshell revelation in an interview Thursday with WABC Radio host Sean Hannity. WELDON: In September of 2000 we tried on three occasions to take the information we had developed and pass it along to the FBI so they could follow up and take action against this [al Qaeda] cell and perhaps bring in Atta and question him and do whatever else was necessary.
Three times we were turned by lawyers in the administration.
HANNITY: We're talking about lawyers in the Clinton administration.
WELDON: Yes, it was the Clinton administration. Lawyers said there were two reasons why you can't do that. And they even put stickies over the face of Mohamed Atta on this chart they had. They said, "He's here legally. He's either got a green card or he's got a visa. So you can't even touch him - it doesn't matter what information you have." [END OF EXCERPT]
Moments later, Weldon said he was determined to find out who it was who ultimately gave the order to protect the lead 9/11 hijacker.
WELDON: The American people need to have answers. They need to have answers about who made the decision to stop our military intelligence from sharing information with the FBI, and how high up the ladder that went.
Did it stop at DoD? Or was the Justice Department involved in that decision? Or was the White House involved in that decision?
Ex-president Bill Clinton said Sunday that he tried to warn Hillary Clinton that marrying him was a bad idea because it would spoil her own political career.
Speaking to the London Times, Clinton recounted the conversation he had with Hillary before their 1975 marriage: "You know what? You shouldn't marry me because you're as good at this as I am. It would be a terrible mistake."
But Mrs. Clinton, he said, wouldn't listen.
"Oh no," she replied. "I'll never run for anything. I don't have the patience for it."
Mr. Clinton said that 25-years later, he was relieved when his wife decided to embark on her own political career.
"I felt a load had been lifted off my shoulders because I always felt I had robbed the American political scene of the most gifted person I ever knew," he told the Times.
To no one's surprise he gave his wife's public performance so far high marks, telling the paper: "Gosh, she's done a brilliant job in the Senate and I'm really proud of her."
But the ex-president had some words of warning for his spouse as she ponders a 2008 presidential run.
"The only thing I worry about her now is she works too hard. Every mistake I ever made in my life - personal and political - every significant one, I made when I was too tired. So I just want her to pace herself."
