Every single person in the White House and the Pentagon that has access to classified information has to have at minimum a Secret Clearance which involves an FBI background check and interview, yet members of Congress and staff are given clearance with no check whatsoever.
Any wonder how so many of national security documents are being leaked to the media. You have members of Congress like Jefferson and Hastings who couldn't even qualify for my position yet they are automatically cleared to view highly sensitive national security documents if they are on the right committees.
This has to be fixed. Chuck Muth has three great proposals to fix this very dangerous problem.

Well, once again this is unfortunately being proven true. In their first budget proposal since taking control, the Dems have proposed the biggest tax increase in American history (they broke their 1993 record, which is the last time they had control). Their budget will result in $393 Billion in new taxes over the next 5 years. Not only will this choke the economic growth of the last 4 years, it will reverse it.

In Chapter 9, Sec 1901, Part b it reads:
None of the funds appropriated or otherwise made available in this or any other Act may be used to deploy any unit of the Armed Forces to Iraq unless the chief of the military department concerned has certified in writing to the Committees on Appropriations and the Committees on Armed Services at least 15 days in advance of the deployment that the unit is fully mission capable.
Are you kidding me!!! That is the epitome of overstepping their Constitutional limits by telling the President and the military commanders that they must notify Congress 15 days prior to any deployment. You can't fight a war like that!!! Can you imagine if this passed? We receive intelligence on a target in Iraq and the best unit to carry out the operation is in Kuwait. They would have to wait 15 DAYS before they would be able to act on it. That is absolutely ridiculous.
They knew full well that by putting completely insane provisions like that in the bill it would never pass. This is the slow bleed strategy that they hope instead of having to vote to defund the troops they will try to delay funding as long as possible through political games. Very sad indeed!

First is the whole US Attorney non-scandal. The Constitution says in Article 2, Section 2:
The President shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for
The President has the right to fire anyone he appoints for any reason he chooses, even political ones. If they don't want him to have the power to do that for US Attorneys then they need to amend the Constitution to lay out the process of appointing them. Good luck with that. They know they could never pass that, so instead they will try and subvert the Constitutional separation of powers and demand who can and can't be fired. Intersting how they didn't care this much when Rumsfeld "resigned" for political reasons.
The next issue is DC getting a vote in Congress. Let's read the Constitution, Article 1, Section 2:
The House of Representatives shall be composed of Members chosen every second Year by the People of the several STATES
DC is not a state. Therefore it gets no vote in Congress. If the Libs believe they should then the process is to amend the Constitution. Oh wait...they tried that and it failed. So, instead of obeying the Constitution they think they can just re-write it to fit there desires being they know that a DC vote means one extra vote for them as DC votes nearly 90% Democrat.
And finally and the most dangerous of all is the Dems complete lack of respect for the President's Constitutional role as Commander in Chief. The only power Congress has is to approve military actions, which it did, and the power of the purse. However, being they know that if tried to cut off the funds like the wacky left wants, they wouldn't stand a chance, so instead they once again overstep their Constitutional authority and put a deadline for the President to remove troops. Even that they were only barely able to do that, 118-112 due to blackmailing Members by sending over $20 billion dollars in pork to districts in exchange for their vote. We have just become less safe, the enemy is emboldened further, and the Iraqi citizens will have even more reasons to not help us for fear of reprisals when we leave.

I bet they are just shaking with fear after that display of strength!

It was funny b/c during their rally Skye heard them announce several times for the crowd to move in towards the stage. This was to try and make the camera shots of the crowd look big. Due to the small numbers and the big field they were in, it made the already small number look even smaller.
Here are other bloggers who were either on the ground or have done wrap up posts based on what they have found on their own about the event. They also have links on their sites as well to great reports on the day. Not an exhaustive list by any stretch but names that are familiar in the comments here.
Always on Watch
Now on to the fun. Below you will find several posts with pics of the day along with my running commentary. Enjoy =)
There she is in all her Glory!!!
It really was a striking display the difference in the flags of the two groups. I've only given you a small sampling of what was there. Another one I saw that I wish I could have gotten a clear picture of but couldn't due to people in the way was an American flag, but in the place of the stars were corporate logos like Nike, Microsoft, Coke and others I guess to say we are no longer a country of states but of evil corporations.
Next up...can you please come up with something new???
John Kerry would have been proud...of course it is only the poor dumb kids that join the service...how about doing some research and see the true break down of our armed services...you might learn a thing or two and then you too can pass the test to join...well...that might be stretching it.
If you mean that the media is completely biased and only gives one thought process as opposed to a balanced view of ideas then I guess I'd have to agree with you on that one...too bad you are already too infected by their control...thank God for FoxNews and the blogosphere!!!
Finally some originality for a change...how cool would that be...you are a Islamic radical with your sniper rifle trained on a soldier and he just disappeared in the blink of an eye.
All in all I definitely wasn't impressed as the same old tried and true were out in full force chanting the same old tired sayings...can we please learn something new for next year?
Up next...who exactly showed up?
Speaking of socialist
That's more like it...told you they were against globalism
And last but not least the PETA contingent
Hope you enjoyed your walk through lefty world.
And finally a hodgepodge of the rest...
Wish I could have gotten a full shot of this b/c it had good stuff...after going through everything that has happened since 9-11...you know...Bush lied, torture camps, illegal wiretaps, etc...they ask you to ask yourself "if you feel free"...yes I do thank you very much for asking!
Now we switch gears and have a little give and take between leftys and Eagles:
Left's war strategy
Finally an honest lefty...we all know they want to cut and run...finally someone has the guts to say it.
The very real reality of what happens if we cut and run!
See how much fun ya'll missed. Well I'm glad I was able to represent so many Eagles that wished they could be here but couldn't. Until next time...Cajun Tiger over and out from lefty land.

Well, after a couple of fun exchanges with a couple of new libs in the comments section, I've decided to change my plans tomorrow morning and make a whole day out of it. Despite the forecast of snow and below freezing temps, I'll be there to join a whole list of other bloggers that have frequented the comments section on here. Among the ones I know as of now are: Skye (who will be posting live pictures to her site and if I can figure that one out I'll try to do the same), Grizzly Mama, Troll, and Always on Watch. And as I mentioned in the previous post, Mike will be blogging live and talking to us on the phone so swing by his site for the play by play. Stay tuned for what I'm sure will be very telling.
I'm also pumped that Rolling Thunder will be there as well. If you have never been in DC over Memorial Weekend, you are definitely missing out. It is one of my favorite holidays to be in DC. One of the highlights is the Rolling Thunder groups rally on usually the Saturday before Memorial Day. They come in from all over the country on mostly Harleys...hence the name Rolling Thunder. It is definitely a sight and sound to behold!
If anyone in DC wants to join me, give me a call so we can meet up tomorrow morning and go over together.

It is a great analogy of today. We have men and women in our armed forces who are bravely sacrificing so much so that we may continue to enjoy the freedoms we have in this country. To bad there are many Dems that are just like the traitor in the movie that would rather see us lose as opposed to a victory that would benefit President Bush and the Repubs.
The movie is definitely very violent and they unfortunately has a couple of sexually explicit scenes, but the courage and loyalty shown by the King and his men should serve as an example of what can be accomplished if we were united as a country against the same enemy faced over 2000 years ago by the Spartans.
