WASHINGTON (AP) – Fearful of damaging his own party in next week’s elections, Sen. John Kerry apologized Wednesday to “any service member, family member or American” offended by remarks deemed by Republicans and Democrats to be insulting to U.S. forces in Iraq.

Lets get real here, this wasn’t an apology, this was a case of Lurch covering both his and the democrats collective asses. Full story available here

Here is what those in uniform had to say about his apology:

Alot has already been made of this, and Kerry claims it was a joke that went bad. Whatever the reason for him saying this, he is now paying a heavy price for his comment. Good to see.

Documents reveal ‘shadow government’

About 1,000 documents obtained in a Freedom of Information Act request to the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America show the White House is engaging in collaborative relations with Mexico and Canada outside the U.S. Constitution, says WND columnist and author Jerome Corsi.

“The documents give clear evidence that the Bush administration has created a ‘shadow government,'” Corsi said.

The documents can be viewed here, on a special website set up by the Minuteman Project.

Hopefully no one is surprised by this. For those in the dark about whats actually in store for us, I would ask that you go to this government website and do some research: SPP.gov

Military Commissions Act of 2006

Full text of this horrendous law can be found Here.

Great commentary provided on the MCA 2006 provided by Keith Olbermann

There has already been enough discussion about how this law totally destroys habeas corpus, so I thought I would point out just a few of the other dangerous sections of this pile of crap.

First up: Section 950j (b)

PROVISIONS OF CHAPTER SOLE BASIS FOR RE12
VIEW OF MILITARY COMMISSION PROCEDURES AND AC13
TIONS.—Except as otherwise provided in this chapter,
and notwithstanding any other law (including section
2241 of title 28, United States Code, or any other habeas
corpus provision), no court, justice, or judge shall have
jurisdiction to hear or consider any claim or cause of action whatsoever, including any action pending on or filed
after the date of enactment of this chapter, relating to the
prosecution, trial, or judgment of a military commission
convened under this section, including challenges to the
lawfulness of the procedures of military commissions
under this chapter.

What this effectively does is forbid any judge in any court from challenging this law or the legality of it. AG Alberto “Mecha” Gonzales has already warned federal judges not to interfere.

Section 948a (7)

UNLAWFUL ENEMY COMBATANT.—The
term ‘unlawful enemy combatant’ means an individual determined by or under the authority of the
President or the Secretary of Defense

“(A) to be part of or affiliated with a
force or organization—including but not
limited to al Qaeda, the Taliban, any international terrorist organization, or associated
forces—engaged in hostilities against the

United States or its co-belligerents in violation of the law of war;
“(B) to have committed a hostile act
in aid of such a force or organization so engaged; or
“(C) to have supported hostilities in
aid of such a force or organization so engaged

This effectively gives the President & Sec. of Defense the power to delcare anyone and everyone an enemy combatant without providing any evidence whatsoever.

Heres an interview with Constitutional Law Professor Jonathan Turley to further prove this point:

One could go on and on about how detrimental this “law” is to the Constitution but just remember this: They also said the Patriot Act wouldnt be used in cases that didnt involve terrorism. How would they explain this or this ?

Bush Signs U.S.-Mexico Border Fence Bill

•October 27, 2006 • Leave a Comment

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Bush signed a bill Thursday authorizing 700 miles of new fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border, hoping to give Republican candidates a pre-election platform for asserting they’re tough on illegal immigration.

Election time politics? If Bush was serious about securing the border, he would’ve wanted the entire 2,000+ mile border secured, not just 700 miles. Lets get real here, they couldnt care less if our borders are secured or not. If they actually did care about the future of this nation, they would make this the single most important issue and do everything they possibly can to make our broder secure. Obviously the federal government has failed us once again.

DHS worker says he was punished for reporting illegal immigrants

OKLAHOMA CITY — A state Department of Human Services worker says he was punished for trying to report illegal immigrants who were applying for state benefits.

It’s almost like they want these illegals to continue to steal our tax dollars…

What in the hell is this for?
