Steve | Felipe Calderon, Illegal Immigration, Tom Tancredo

It's been a while since I've been able to post, but this one was too good to pass up. In the wake of Felipe Calderon's arrogance in coming to the US and lecturing us on our immigration policy, Sen. Tom Tancredo from Colorado publish an open letter to Calderon on his web site. I'll let the letter speak for itself.

President Calderon:


I was disappointed by misguided comments you recently made regarding U.S.-Mexico relations and U.S. immigration laws. Purveying misinformation and absurd allegations is hardly a positive step to building a constructive partnership.


According to the Associated Press you recently said, “You have two economies. One economy is intensive in capital, which is the American economy. One economy is intensive in labor, which is the Mexican economy. We are two complementary economies, and that phenomenon is impossible to stop.” Yes, both countries benefit by the 85% of Mexico’s manufacturing exports that come to the U.S., but people are not commodities. While I appreciate your concern for our joint prosperity, the economic and social ills that plague your country cannot be resolved by simply exporting your citizens to the United States.

As evidence has been showing for a long time, global climate goes in cycles - warming, cooling, warming again, cooling again, and so on (however, don't expect the global warming hype mongers at the Dead Fish Wrapper to own up to that any time soon).  This fact is demonstrated by a great graphic produced by Cliff Harris and Randy Mann at Long Range Weather (h/t Noel Sheppard).

Notice the nice cyclical movement of average temperature?  It's facts like these that the Dead Fish Wrapper would never publish.

If the founder of the Weather Channel spoke out in favor of the global warming hype, do you think the Daily Dead Fish Wrapper would publish it?  Heck, they'd be all over it like sticky on tape.  But, since John Coleman, the founder of the Weather Channel has come out against the hype, you can be certain it will be ignored.

As published at the ICECAP (International Climate and Environmental Change Assessment Project) web site:

Steve | Chicago Tribune, Howard Witt, Ignored Stories, Jena 6

I've already written about the truth behind the Jena 6, but now it's time for some more truth; the Jena 6 are just money hungry thugs looking to get famous, all because they were so manly, it took 6 of them to beat up one guy.  Now, Howard Witt at the Chicago Tribune has written about how the donated money that was supposed to be for their defense is disappearing.

Just weeks after some 20,000 demonstrators protested what they decried as unequal justice aimed at six black teenagers in the Louisiana town of Jena, controversy is growing over the accounting and disbursing of at least $500,000 donated to pay for the teenagers' legal defense.

Parents of the "Jena 6" teens have refused to publicly account for how they are spending a large portion of the cash, estimated at up to $250,000, that resides in a bank account they control.

Steve | 2008 Presidential Campaign, Eloise Harper, Hillary Clinton, Ignored Stories, Major Garrett, Planted Questions

Hello, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to yet another episode of "Cover for the Democrat", as displayed regularly by the Daily Dead Fish Wrapper.  Today's episode is about one of the Fish Wrapper's favorite people to protect, Hillary(ous) Clinton.  We already know that she is unable to answer a tough question without flip flopping more than a fish on a table, and when she is, her people whine that she is being picked on and asked "misleading" questions.

Now she shows how really afraid she is of answering tough questions.  Two times in the past week, it has been revealed that her campaign has been planting questions in the audience at campaign stops.  The first time was Tuesday (11/6/07), at a biodiesel plant in Newton, Iowa.

Steve | Child Pornography, Janie Har, Metro, Scott Ballo

It's time for another episode of "Cover For The Democrat", as displayed yet again by the Daily Dead Fish Wrapper.  Today's episode concerns Scott Ballo, a former spokesman for Ted Kulongoski, who was arraigned today for having child pornography on his state-owned laptop.

Ex-Kulongoski aide arraigned in child porn case

Scott Ballo, a former spokesman for Oregon Gov. Ted Kulongoski, was arraigned this week in Marion County Circuit Court on two counts of encouraging child sex abuse and one count of official misconduct.

Steve | Cesar Chavez, Front, Interstate Avenue, James Mayer

As the issue of renaming Interstate Avenue in North Portland for Cesar Chavez continues, so does the Daily Dead fish Wrapper's one side reporting.  The situation is that Commissioner Eric Sten, instead of sticking with his guns, is giving in to the whiner "activists" and voting for the renaming, against the wishes of those who actually live and work on Interstate Avenue.

There are a couple of things that stand out in this article.  The first is the way the Latinos (and the blacks who have joined them) try to get what they want; by whining about not getting their way, threats, and browbeating.

Steve | Editorials, Gabriel Brandt, Oregon DHS

By now, the story of Baby Gabriel Brandt is well known around Oregon.  Gabriel was put into foster care by the state when he was 4 months old.  His mother pled guilty to felony drug charges but then fled before sentencing, and is nowhere to be found.  His father, an illegal immigrant from Mexico, was released from Oregon prison last month after serving time on drug charges. He had also been twice convicted of attempted first-degree rape involving a child.  So the parental rights of both parents had been officially severed by the state, and Gabe had been given to Steve and Angela Brandt as a foster child.  The Brandts were told that they had a good chance to adopt Gabe.

Steve | Christian Right, Christianity, Opinion, Socialism, Tom Krattenmaker

In the Sunday Fish Wrapper, Tom Krattenmaker writes what is a typical opinion column for the Fish Wrapper - a lot of liberalism and bashing the Christian right wherever possible.  The thrust of his column is that  Christians should be more concerned about the liberals favorite public policy issues, and move more towards the political center, away from the values of the Christian right.

He starts out with the focus of the piece, a conference on Scripture and public policy.

Steve | Associated Press, Cancer, Front, Rudy Giuliani

On page A2 in the Saturday edition of the Fish Wrapper, they reprint an AP article that attempts to rebut cancer survivability statistics quoted by Rudy Giuliani in campaign ads.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Rudy Giuliani is defending the survival rates he quotes when talking about his prostate cancer, amid criticism he understates the figures and makes unfair comparisons.

In a radio ad running this week in New Hampshire, Giuliani says: "My chance of surviving prostate cancer, and thank God I was cured of it, in the United States: 82 percent. My chances of surviving prostate cancer in England: only 44 percent under socialized medicine."
