Lately as the Democratic left has become emboldened with the rise of Obama, the Congress has increasingly become a Congress of Traitors, which this unbelievable clip from Democratic Congressman Delahunt makes all the more obvious. This isn't simply about opposing the War, it's about supporting the terrorists.
Congressman Delahunt endorsed Obama early on during the primaries as an anti-war candidate
Delahunt says America needs a dramatic change in foreign policy. "The Bush administration has not only divided us here at home, but has isolated America from much of the world. Barack Obama understands these challenges. He will not only bridge our divisions here at home, but will reach out and rebuild diplomatic ties with countries around the world.”
Obama of course praised Delahunt in turn as a voice for American ideals. Though it seems more like a voice for Al Queda ideals.
“Congressman Delahunt has been a leading voice in Congress opposing the Bush administration’s foreign policy that has diminished our credibility abroad and made us less secure,” said Senator Obama. “He understands the need to leverage not only our military might, but also the power of American ideals, as we work to rebuild our standing in the world. Congressman Delahunt knows that to bring the war to an end and to restore security and prosperity, we must fundamentally change the way we conduct foreign policy.
When challenged about it Delahunt lied and claimed that he had been misunderstood and that he had said that he was glad to watch Addison, a statement that makes no sense and which matches neither his words, nor Addison's reaction to them.
Michelle Malkin has more on Delahunt's presence, which was illegitimate and a product of Nadler the Waddler illegitimately permitting him to be there.
One of the most hostile and ignorant questioners was Rep. William Delahunt (D-MA)–who is not even a member of the subcommittee. When subcommittee member Steve King (R-Iowa) politely objected that Nadler had not followed the rules in obtaining unanimous consent for Delahunt’s questioning (King did not object to his presence, just the failure to follow House rules), Nadler obnoxiously acknowledged the point of order, regretting that he had been called out. Later, after King had left the hearing room, Nadler personally attacked King and snarked that he must not have cared about the rules enough to stay.
To protect Delahunt's comments and conduct, you can phone his office at 202-225-3111 or by email at email@example.com.
This is the faction of the Democratic party backing Obama and it is all the more crucial that the pro-terrorist wing of the Democratic party cannot be allowed to win the election.
Meanwhile the dirt on Obama's corrupt financial ties is just beginning to come out. The No Quarter blog has a Boston Globe expose that shows just how cynically Obama exploited the very people he was supposed to represent, especially minorities, by selling himself to the developers.
Campaign finance records show that six prominent developers - including Jarrett, Davis, and Rezko - collectively contributed more than $175,000 to Obama’s campaigns over the last decade and raised hundreds of thousands more from other donors. Rezko alone raised at least $200,000, by Obama’s own accounting.
One of those contributors, Cecil Butler, controlled Lawndale Restoration, the largest subsidized complex in Chicago, which was seized by the government in 2006 after city inspectors found more than 1,800 code violations.
Similar to Rezko, Cecil Butler is a developer who profited from the privatization of low income, public housing in Chicago during the 1990s. Butler is also not coincidentally a major supporter of Barack Obama whose low income tenements were ultimately seized by the government for multiple building code violations.
Lemon Lime Moon meanwhile tackles Obama's endless bus ride over everyone who stops being useful to him,
And why is Wall Street the only thing he says he considered outside politics? If he is so for the people why wasn't he an affordable lawyer for the poor? That applies to Mrs Obumpty too... for all their love of the "common" people these snobs don't work to help them really. If Obumpty was sincere he would have been working for legal aid or opening a law office that catered financially to those who most need it. No, both he and Mrs. Obumpty are multi-millionaires with privilege piled high and deep on their plates alongside the arugula that most American's cannot afford.
(I am reminded of doctors from poor third world nations who said they studied medicine to serve and help people yet they all come to the US rather than stay in their own nations to "serve" and "help" people. They are serving themselves a hefty pay check , that's what.)
It seems that if even a thousand years after slavery is gone from American shores, men like Obama and wife will continue to use it as a hammer to get their own way rather than working for it . It is the child's way of blackmail for what you want rather than hard work and good values. Most black Americans just work hard and never play a race card at all. Obama uses it as a club and tool.
Christmas Ghost meanwhile has a letter from a retired US Marine who tells it like it is
Yes, I'm questioning your patriotism. Your loyalty ends with self. I'm also questioning why you're stealing air that decent Americans could be breathing. You don't deserve the protection of our men and women in uniform. You need to run away from this war, this country. Leave the war to the people who have the will to see it through and the country to people who are willing to defend it.
No, Mr. President, you don't get off the hook, either. Our country has two enemies: Those who want to destroy us from the outside and those who attempt it from within. Your Soldiers are dealing with the outside force. It's your obligation to support them by confronting the AXIS OF IDIOTS.
America must hear it from you that these self-centered people are harming our country, abetting the enemy and endangering our safety. Well up a little anger, please, and channel it toward the appropriate target. You must prosecute those who leak national security secrets to the media. You must prosecute those in the media who knowingly publish those secrets.
Our Soldiers need you to confront the enemy that they cannot. They need you to do it now.
Maggie at Maggie's Notebook asks whether the UN will do anything to enforce its resolution on rape war crimes
The U.N. Security Council has now "resolved," through a "Resolution" to do something about rape in time of war.
One "action" the U.N. has woven into their "Resolution" is to "sanction" the offender. I'm certain all those victims of "gender" abuse feel better now, and those knowing they'll likely be a future victim, now know that their abuses will not go unnoticed.
If "Resolutions" had any merit within the U.N.-body, we would not be in Iraq, Saddam Hussein could not have stolen the food away from his own people under the august "Oil for Food" program, and Iran would not be on the nuclear track. Resolutions mean nothing to the U.N.
Meanwhile the New Centrist celebrates the Supreme Court decision on gun rights as a victory for individuals over collectives
Given the general failure of gun-control in urban areas I am wonder why so many clear-thinking people would stick to these policies. Much of it is fear, the notion that more guns in the community cannot lead to any positive outcome and will only result in more gun violence. Yet DC has had gun-control for three decades and regularly leads the country in incidences of violent crime. And when the “assault-weapons” ban ended in 2004, there was no spike in violence associated with semi-automatic rifles. I suspect similar results in DC.
Solominia meanwhile takes a look back at Pre-WW2 anti-war radicalism to discover that the anti-war campaigns of today are just rewinds of the anti-war campaigns of the past, with their own Cindy Sheehan.
Ted Belman rounds up the opposition to the release of Samir Kuntar, whom I have written about in the past. Citing Caroline Glick, IsraPundit posts;
“It is a stinging indictment of Israel’s political and media culture that the debate about these life-threatening deals has been dominated by the impassioned and tragic pleas of the hostages’ families. As Sharansky notes, if as the Schalit and Goldwasser fathers argue, issues of paramount national security are to be determined by the parents of soldiers, then no government can ever commit forces to battle. It is an abdication of national responsibility for Olmert to send the Goldwasser, Regev and Schalit families to his colleagues to beg them to vote in favor of these blood deals. And it is an abdication of responsibility by the media when they provide these terrified, victimized families with an open microphone to rail against our politicians for refusing to have mercy on them.
Due to Hizbullah’s and Hamas’s deliberate, evil designs, the Goldwasser, Schalit and Regev families find themselves set apart from the rest of their countrymen. And since their personal suffering is easier to understand than the general suffering of the public if the murderers go free, it is difficult, but not impossible to understand what is at stake.
Again, that the price is not clear is the fault of the media and the pandering politicians. Disgracefully, both have left the Israeli people as a whole unrepresented in this debate.

From my own post on Samir Kuntar a while back, a testimonial by one of Samir Kuntar's surviving victims.
"They held Danny and Einat while they searched for me and Yael, knowing there were more people in the apartment. I will never forget the joy and the hatred in their voices as they swaggered about hunting for us, firing their guns and throwing grenades. [Emphasis mine-SW] I knew that if Yael cried out, the terrorists would toss a grenade into the crawl space and we would be killed. So I kept my hand over her mouth, hoping she could breathe. As I lay there, I remembered my mother telling me how she had hidden from the Nazis during the Holocaust. "This is just like what happened to my mother," I thought.
As police began to arrive, the terrorists took Danny and Einat down to the beach. There, according to eyewitnesses, one of them shot Danny in front of Einat so that his death would be the last sight she would ever see. Then he smashed my little girl's skull in against a rock with his rifle butt. That terrorist was Samir Kuntar.
By the time we were rescued from the crawl space, hours later, Yael, too, was dead. In trying to save all our lives, I had smothered her."
