Tuesday Morning Quick Comments (at least I think it's Tuesday)
UPDATE: Just saw this on Numbers USA.
NBC News said Tuesday it will air an hour-long documentary about illegal immigration in the Roaring Fork Valley of Colorado. The network said it spent eight months "reporting on the myths and truths about illegal immigration in this pristine stretch between Aspen and Vail," which has seen an influx of Hispanics, mostly from Mexico. "Tom Brokaw Reports: In the Shadow of the American Dream" is scheduled to air Dec. 26.
Since I don't watch NBC anymore, I would have missed this. You might want to put it on your calendar. I can scarcely wait to see the glossy spin NBC puts on this invasion of that formerly "pristine stretch" of land between Aspen and Vail. I have heard of this influx from Minutemen in Colorado, who are actively working to encourage the state and local government to crack down on this activity.
Hillary Clinton says she wouldn't have voted for the Iraq War. I must say, I have a lot of respect for people with firm convictions. No respect due here.
Europe is bracing for a terror attack during the Christmas holidays. Did it ever occur to anyone that the threat of terrorism is, in itself, terrorism?
Kudos to the Belize Police Dept. for "nabbing" fugitive homegrown U.S terrorist, 41 year old Ernest James Thompson, who, according to Leonard Hill, Deputy Chief of Mission, U.S. Embassy, “... was initially arrested in 2003 in connection with plots in the United States to poison water supplies and to do a number of other things. He subsequently pleaded guilty to charges dealing with Al Qaeda in Afghanistan and providing various types of material support to the Taliban as well in Afghanistan.”
Good catch and Thanx!!
UPDATE: There should have been a huge hat tip to Lance because this was actually his scoop! Lance, if I'd known, the hat tip woulda been there from the start!!
Lord Monckton, Would you like to serve in the U.S. Senate? Get this. In an open letter to Sen. Rockefeller (D-WV) and Sen. Snowe (R-ME), he wrote: "You defy every tenet of democracy when you invite ExxonMobil to deny itself the right to provide information to 'senior elected and appointed government officials' who disagree with your opinion." In case you missed this story, as did I, apparently, "Senators Rockefeller and Snowe released an open letter dated October 30 to ExxonMobil CEO, Rex Tillerson, insisting he end Exxon's funding of a "climate change denial campaign." The Senators labeled scientists with whom they disagree as "deniers," a term usually directed at "Holocaust deniers." Some voices on the political left have called for the arrest and prosecution of skeptical scientists." Isn't that just typical of the libs? They can't win on facts, so they just squelch those who disagree with their nonsense. Sounds kinda communistic to me. Hmmm...
Busy day ahead. Must dash! Cowgirl out.
