What if "Hillary" was in charge?...


Investor’s Business Daily pointed out the report about another successful missile defense test that was ignored by the mainstream media. The mainstream has been quick to report\discuss the recent National Intelligence Estimate which “Estimates” that Iran stopped it’s work on Nuclear weapons approximately three years ago. But yet Iran has worked hard to develop missile technology to deliver some type of warhead in the near future…

"Advances in missile defense, like good news from Iraq, are things the mainstream media and Democrats ignore. So you may not have heard that an Air Force F-16 successfully destroyed a ballistic missile in its boost phase using an air-to-air missile.
One would think that those who think President Bush is once again trying to conjure up an excuse for war, this time with Iran, would embrace missile defense. The ability to shoot down an Iranian Shahab on a trajectory toward Israel would make a pre-emptive strike on Iranian nuclear installations less likely".

It is good news that the Iranians have stopped(?) their efforts to develop a nuclear weapon but what about their work to develop a missile system that could deliver a nuclear warhead given to them or purchased on e-bay?

"Democrats want us to think the recent National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) puts to rest the issue of an Iranian nuclear threat. But the operative word here is "estimate" and the first rule of estimates is that they are usually wrong. Like Hitler before him, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has announced his intentions".

"According to news reports, Monday's test at White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico involved an F-16 fighter that fired two modified AIM-9X missiles at the target, an Orion research rocket. The first missile hit and destroyed the target. The second recorded the intercept and was also on a trajectory to hit the target".

"But Democrats in Congress want to gut missile defense and have repeatedly slashed Bush's funding requests. If they don't want us to bomb Iran, do they at least want to defend America and its allies"?

Very good read at IBD:

"If 30 seconds is a full day, no wonder Congress has got a lot of work to do."


In a Monday morning Rose Garden statement on congressional priorities, President Bush taunted that "in a political maneuver designed to block my ability to make recess appointments, congressional leaders arranged for a senator to come in every three days or so, bang a gavel, wait for about 30 seconds, bang a gavel again, and then leave. Under the Senate rules, this counts as a full day.

"If 30 seconds is a full day," the president said, "no wonder Congress has got a lot of work to do."

"And now for a question from a undecided, independent, non-affiliated, voter"

It has been noted that the Democratic Party Presidential candidates have refused to participate in any debate moderated by FoxNews for fear of tough or “unfair” questions being asked of them.

This after it being discovered that “selected” campaign staff members or the likes have been inserted into Hillary Clinton events to ask the candidate favorable or “appropriate” softball questions of her. Look at what Clinton and her staff did to Tim Russert when he asked a simple question that “Stepped over” her line of comfort. Wolf Blitzer got his warning and was a good boy when the time came.

And then there was this past weeks CNN\YouTube Republican Party Presidential candidate debate where over 5,000 video questions were submitted for CNN to choose from. Robert Bluey from The Heritage Foundation has some interesting observations of the choices made by CNN:

“The network had nearly 5,000 to choose from -- plenty to get a good representation of a variety of issues. Instead, we heard three questions about guns, a question attacking trade, another about the North American Union, a question about The Holy Bible and two each on abortion and homosexuality. By the time Anderson Cooper got around to introducing a question about the Confederate flag, it was time to click off the TV“.

Unlike the Democratic Party candidates, the Republican Party candidates participated in a televised debate to give the voters of the United States to see their performance and understand the candidates positions on issues. Unfortunately CNN once again concentrated on the potential damaging questions in hopes of tripping up the Republican candidates instead of providing a forum for serious discussion.

“What was missing? There wasn’t a single question about America’s energy policy, the environment, entrepreneurship or education. Despite this being the most tech-savvy debate in terms of format, there were no questions on net neutrality or telecom policy. Most alarming was the complete omission of the single biggest public policy debate taking place in Washington today: health care“.

Fortunately the voters and citizens of the United States are viewing the true agenda of some mainstream media outlets like CNN and Clinton with her “stacking” the deck at her events…

Imagine if it was possible to get Hillary and the other Democratic Party candidates in front of a moderator that would ask the questions that the Citizens of the United States would truly like to hear? What would happen if there was a moderator who had the tough and appropriate follow-up question after the candidate had spun themselves out from under the initial question? Tim Russert is good, but imagine if he had the freedom to ask the questions the way he wanted?

I encourage you to post questions that you would like asked of the Democratic Party candidates at the next debate. It’s not going to happen but can you imagine?

Delegate Chris Saxman


Found a press release with comments made by Delegate Saxman about his possibility of running for the Virginia Senator spot being vacated by the retiring Senator John Warner. This was found on which is a very good site to get conservative and factual columns by some outstanding columnists.
