And Hillary Clinton -- to be known henceforth around these parts as Mad Madam Mim -- isn't happy.
She recently told the audience at a DNC Winter Meeting, "I want to take those profits and I want to put them into a strategic energy fund." Whatever that is. My guess is that it will smell an awful lot like bacon. And that 'boondoggle' will be an understated way of describing it.
According to news.com.au, "China's military is harvesting organs from unwilling live
prison inmates, mostly Falungong practitioners, for transplants on a
large scale - including to foreign recipients- according to a study." (emphasis added)
Well, at least those poor Falungong practitioners aren't locked up at Gitmo, where they would experience the truly savage inhumane treatment meted out by BusHitler's secret CIA torture squads.
Well ... it seems that House Speaker Nancy Peolsi, our own Grandmother Superior, is pressuring the
Bush Administration to give her unlimited personal access to military aircraft. One knowledgable source called it "carte blanche for an aircraft any time" ... including free rides for her congressional staff, her relatives, and members of the California delegation.
She's a millionaire, yet she can't be bothered to by a first-class plane ticket? Whoever said "there is no such thing as a free ride" apparently never met today's Democrat leadership.
ADDED: The Washington Times has an update on the story here:
The Bush administration has agreed to provide House Speaker Nancy
Pelosi with regular access to an Air Force passenger jet, but the two
sides are negotiating whether she will get the big aircraft she wants
and who she may take as passengers, according to congressional and
A congressional source said that Rep. John P. Murtha, chairman
of House Appropriations subcommittee on defense, which controls the
Pentagon's spending, has telephoned administration officials to urge
them to give the speaker what she wants.
Here is a link to the full text of the floor speech given by Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton on October 10, 2002, regarding her decision to vote in favor of a joint resolution giving President Bush the authority to use military force against Iraq.
Regardless of what she says today, or in the upcoming months, this speech outlines her original reasons for voting in favor of the resolution.
Here is the joint resolution passed by the 107th Congress in 2002 that authorized President Bush to use military force in order to remove Saddam Hussein from power.
There have been so many factual inaccuracies about the nature and content of this resolution that I believe it is necessary for me to provide yet another mirror website containing the full text of the resolution.
