Disbarred, It's About Time

District Attorney, Mike Nifong has been disbarred. While this is long over due, it is only the beginning. Nifong will probably be facing criminal charges of obstruction of justice, conspiracy and a civil law suit. These young men, of course, will never get their good name back. I understand that one of their mothers was approached at the Nifong hearing and told by a woman that she would always believe that her son was a rapist. Of course, we have heard no apology from the Black Panthers, the college professors and the college president and what about Jesse Jackson who offered the false accuser a scholarship?

This is just a drop in the bucket of out-of-control prosecutors who mostly go after poor individuals who cannot afford to defend themselves and who receive public defenders who often do inadequate jobs defending their clients. It seems shocking to me how many cases where obviously innocent people, like Scooter Libby, are either convicted or spend years in the court system while obviously guilty parties, often child pedophiles and women who murder their own children, seem to avoid prosecution or are automatically made out to be mentally ill or abused.

Between activist judges and out-of-control prosecutors our entire justice system is in disarray beginning with the Attorney General, who is completely incompetent and unqualified for the position he holds. Don't forget President Bush wanted him to be on the Supreme Court. I do not believe for a second that the President did not have the right to fire the US Attorneys. They serve at the pleasure of the President and if he wanted them gone that is it. Where I'm coming from is that Gonzales has chosen to prosecute border patrol agents over drug smugglers, human traffickers, illegal sex offenders, employers who hire illegals, child rapists, gang members, murderers and people who vote illegally; and the list goes on and on. The US crime rate has risen under Gonzales and now we find out that there is even more abuse of the Patriot Act by the FBI than what was originally believed. We also have a complete failure of the Justice Department to communicate effectively with the press and the American people, which is a problem that plaques the entire Bush Administration.

While the Nifong verdict is a small step in the right direction, we still have very serious issues with our justice system and it is only going to change if we hold our elected officials responsible for the justices they nominate. We must also commit to keeping tabs on how our prosecutors and district attorneys execute the law and how they conduct prosecutions. This is another reason why we need to be vigilant on who we elect and why my wife and I support Mike Huckabee for President.

The NBA Finals Were A Complete Waste Of Time

Cleveland displayed the worst coaching I have ever seen in the finals. The team was off in all four games. The play calls appeared to be questionable. The team chemistry was off the entire time and LeBron James' ball handling skills were horrible. One thing that is very clear is that LeBron James does not have the killer instinct that Dwayne Wade has. He refused to drive to the paint and draw contact. When he got isolated he appeared to panic and throw wild passes to spots on the court more that to teammates. If he is going to develop into the player that Nike and the NBA has hyped him to be he is going to have to develop his ball handling skills and he has to develop a killer instinct.

Reaction To Huckabee's Interviews Today

My initial reaction to Huckabee's appearance on Sean Hannity's radio show and then on Hannity and Colmes is that he had his usual strong performance. It is definitely obvious that Sean Hannity is going to pull the same attack as the Democrats and try to reduce Huckabee to the funny candidate with a good sense of humor. Of course, Colmes stuck with the left attack of Huckabee being the religious guy. I feel by now these ploys are obvious to everyone so I won't go into any detail, but I do highly recommend you go to Kevin Tracy's blog and watch the video.

A Must Read

WorldNetDaily featured and article by Janet Folger, "Huckabee was right" Posted: June 12, 2007. This is a must read for conservatives and a learning opportunity for liberals. It is not just an argument for creation and a stand for Huckabee, it is full of facts and information we know and some I didn't realize.

Cleveland Gets Shafted

I am not a fan of either team. I am a dedicated Miami Heat and Milwaukee Bucks fan, but I was flipping back and forth between C-Span and the NBA Finals and with under 5 seconds left on the clock and down by 3 Lebron James was obviously fowled in the act of shooting a 3 pointer. The Spurs won on a bad no-call by the refs. I love the NBA, but these no-calls at the end of games are getting old.

Republicans In The House Stand Up For The American Voters

Redstate has all of the details, but it is nice to see Republicans standing up and trying to put an end to the massive earmark abuses. Apparently what is going on is the Democrats want the Republicans to vote on the Homeland Security spending bill before they inform them of what earmarks are in the bill and there are apparently over 30,000 of them. This of course goes back on all of Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi's, campaign promises to bring the pork out into the open. So if you are still up I recommend you turn on C-Span and click on Redstate to be brought up-to-date. Wouldn't it be nice if the RINO's in the Senate would do the same?

Hannity Has Been Colmsed Over

A lot lately, and especially the first hour of his radio show today, Hannity has gushed over Rudy Giuliani asking what part of his agenda is not conservative and adding except for abortion. He then goes on to make a point that all a president can do on the abortion matter is appoint judges. Well, that is not true, a president can set the agenda for a nation and if the U.S. will support abortion clinics overseas as part of our aide to various nations. They can also veto pro abortion legislation passed by the House and Senate.

We are also supposed to trust that Giuliani would appoint strict constructionists judges yet in the past Giuliani has praised Ruth Bader Ginsburg who is so far to the left I honestly believe that she is not competent to serve on the Supreme Court. Even though Hannity likes to gloss over it, there is also the issue of the Second Amendment and gay rights. These are all extremely important issues to the conservative base and should not ever be overlooked. Hannity has been rallying against the President's so-called comprehensive immigration reform for the last few weeks saying he doesn't understand why the President has betrayed his conservative principles. I agree with him on this, but I don't understand how he can chastise the President for abandoning his conservative principles and then turn around and tell us that there are only three candidates who can win the presidency and that we should support Rudy Giuliani, the most liberal of all of them.

The fact is there are not just three candidates in the race, as we all know and we do not have to settle. We have a tried and true conservative candidate in Gov. Mike Huckabee. The Blog Mike Huckabee President 2008 points out a new poll out of New Hampshire shows Gov. Huckabee at 5%. Gov. Huckabee's campaign has also improved considerably as they are constantly updating their website, doing new initiatives to get the grassroots personally involved in the campaign on a scale I have not seen from a candidate before. It alright, we will welcome Hannity back after Gov. Huckabee wins the presidency.

Huckabee Scores Big On Hardball

My theory was proven correct. There is no doubt in my mind now that his interview was bumped due to his strong performance. Chris Matthews came across as the arrogant, self-righteous left winger that he is. Especially when he constantly interrupted Huckabee and made inflammatory statements. Through it all Huckabee remained extremely calm and on message. All I kept thinking through the entire interview was if he can do this he can easily deal with the Washington Press Corps.

I also noticed during Thursday, Friday and Monday's episodes of Hardball Chris Matthews continually brings up Huckabee. My theory was that he considered Huckabee to be a real threat for the presidency. After finally seeing the interview I am convinced this is true he even stated "I see your appeal out there, you are a very popular fellow". I highly recommend that you watch the video, it is yet another example of why Huckabee is the best candidate out there. Can you imagine what this nation could have achieved over the last eight years if we would have had a president with the conservative values and the articulate nature of Mike Huckabee.

A Call To Action

I just read the most pathetic piece of trash a so-called award winning columnist could write titled "Counting Huckabee's Often Irksome Ways" By John Brummette. Normally I would ignore this type of trash, but that is the problem with conservatives. We never stand up when fellow conservatives are under attack. So I strongly encourage all of you to read the article and comment. There is only one comment so far, and that is mine. Please keep your comments appropriate as we would not want to sink to his level. After leaving your comment I would suggest you then go to Huckabee's site and make as generous of a contribution as you can afford.
