Question for Hefley

Rep. Joel Hefley was on the radio today, and I figured I would try to get thru to ask him a question. Well I did, and I asked him for a statement... "This past week, Patrick Buchanan and WorldNetDaily founder Joseph Farah have called for the impeachment of Bush over the issue of illegal immigration and Bush's unwillingness to do anything about it"

Hefley replied that it is ridiculous and that this is partisan politics at its worst. Well, I guess you have to guide a congressperson moreso than I did. I should have also mentioned that both men threw their support behind Bush this past election, and both are conservatives. I guess I just figured that even the dimmer congresspersons would know Buchanan's name, and most of the rest would know Farah.

So yeah, it was a bit of a waste, but perhaps it will lead others to check out the reason why two conservatives are calling for impeachment of an allegedly conservative president.

Yesterday, Hu Jintao was named chief of the Communist
Party in China.

National Security Advisor with George W. Bush,
President of the United States.

Condi: Sir, I have the report about the new leader of
George: Great. Let's hear it.
Condi: Hu is the new leader of China.
George: That's what I want to know.
Condi: That's what I'm telling you.
George: That's what I'm asking you. Who is the new
leader of China?
Condi: Yes.
George: I mean the fellow's name.
Condi: Hu.
George: The guy in China.
Condi: Hu.
George: The new leader of China.
Condi: Hu.
George: The Chinaman!
Condi: Hu is leading China.
George: Now whaddya' asking me for?
Condi: I'm telling you Hu is leading China.
George: Well, I'm asking you. Who is leading China?
Condi: That's the man's name.
George: That's whose name?
Condi: Yes.
George: Will you or will you not tell me the name of
the new leader of China?

new leader of China. Get me the Secretary General of
the U.N. on the phone. I bet he knows.
Condi: Kofi?
George: No, thanks.
Condi: You want Kofi?
George: No.
Condi: You don't want Kofi.
George: No. But now that you mention it, I could use a
glass of milk. And then get me the U.N.
Condi: Yes, sir.
George: Not Yassir! The guy at the U.N.
Condi: Kofi?
George: No, milk! Will you please make the call?
Condi: Call who?
George: Who is the guy at the U.N.?
Condi: Hu is the guy in China.
George: Will you stay out of China?!
Condi: Yes, sir.
George: And stay out of the Middle East! Just get me
the guy at the U.N.!
Condi: Kofi?
George: All right! Light with sugar. Now get on the
(Condi picks up the phone.)
Condi: Rice here.
George: Rice? Good idea. And a couple of egg rolls,

Pastor Ted Haggard apologizing to a despot

At one time, and for quite a long time, I proudly called myself a "New Lifer." After all, New Life Church is where I came to know G-d, and there was always a flurry of activity that allowed fellow believers to fellowship. Obviously, I no longer feel the same way. Numerous theological issues kept popping up, some so slightly off that I am hard pressed to even identify them. More immediately noticable is how the focus has changed from saving souls to filling seats. But I digress.

Pastor Ted Haggard is also the president of the National Association of Evangelicals, and has stated that he may soon be running for Congress. In today's Gazette is an article on Pastor Haggard trying to apologize to the (tyrant) Venezuelan President, Hugo Chavez, for the assasination comment made by Pat Robertson. Robertson made a shrewd assesment of the situation, and one that should not be ignored, and certainly not apologized for.

Who is Chavez? Joseph Farah wrote an item on that today, stating "This is a man who, according to his former pilot, paid $1 million to al-Qaida after Sept. 11 – a kind of reward for a job well done.

He rigs elections in his country and has brought nothing but misery to his people – expropriating millions of acres of privately held land, jailing dissidents, banning civilian ownership of guns, bedding down with Colombia's narco-terrrorists, propping up Castro in better style than the old Soviet Union ever did, buying nuclear material from Spain and attempting to build a 2-million-man army in a country not threatened by any external forces.

The chances are excellent that some day – sooner or later – American troops are going to have to deal with Chavez.

To deal now, or to deal later? That is the question.

not really dead
