Russia orders halt to fighting in Georgia

TBILISI, Georgia (AP) - Russia ordered a halt to military action in Georgia on Tuesday, after five days of air and land attacks that sent Georgia’s army into headlong retreat and left towns, military bases and homes in the U.S. ally smoldering. Georgia insisted that Russian forces were still bombing and shelling.

Despite the pledge by Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, Russia launched an offensive Tuesday in the only part of Abkhazia still under Georgian control. An Associated Press reporter saw 135 Russian military vehicles driving through Georgia en route to Abkhazia’s Kodori Gorge - and Georgian officials said their troops in the gorge were being attacked by Russians.

Abkhazian officials claimed their forces - not the Russians - were carrying out artillery attacks in the Kodori Gorge. Fleeing Georgians said the entire population of the gorge, some 3,000 people, had abandoned their homes - some so quickly they didn’t even grab food or water.

“It feels like an annexed country,” said Lasha Margiana, the local administrator in one of the villages in Kodori.

Russia orders halt to fighting in Georgia

I am going to try and simplify this for a few folks that just don’t seem to grasp what is happening in Georgia and South Ossetia.

Both were part of the Soviet Union and Georgia was exercising some degree of control over South Ossetia. They didn’t like it and many of their citizens wanted to go back under the umbrella of Russia and whatever it was that Russia offered them. Georgia didn’t like that idea and it came to blows between Russia and Georgia over the fate of South Ossetia.

This is a business as usual for the folks in that region of the world, and the Russians have more political savvy than most so-called political scientists in THIS nation. The Russians KNOW that we have a powerless, no warfighting MORON in the White House, they KNOW that the U.S. military has been stretched really hard by the *WAR* in Iraq, they know that Iraq has bled us almost to the point that Afghanistan bled them a few years ago.

Bush 41 began the *Destruction of America*, Clinton and the BITCH brought most of it to fruition, and now Jr has all but destroyed the AMERICA I was raised in.

There is NOTHING we can do for Georgia, we don’t have the whereto at this time, and NATO, well, NATO is US, if the U.S. wasn’t paying the bills NATO and the U.N. would cease to exist.

In other words, NATO is a toothless tiger, the goddamned Europeans and the Balkans have always rolled over and gave in to ANY attacker, that’s the way it rolls in that region. Russia has been quietly and patiently rebuilding, because they SAW what we have running the USA, they SEE the libtards that would STILL dismantle our military and Intel services if allowed to. And Russia is doing the only thing they can do, they acted, in what they believe to be THEIR own interest.

Until Great Britain and the USA BOTH grow a set, that’s how it’s gonna go down again.

And as far as growing a set is concerned for the USA, that won’t be happening ANY time in the next 4 years either. We have a Mexican loving POTUS that won’t defend OUR borders and 2 candidates that can’t find their asses with both hands and a set of directions, yet some folks feel we need to step up and defend Georgia??  

WE now have the government that WE allowed to come to power, see what happens when you don’t DEMAND the very best and you settle for the *lesser of the evils*?

Number of illegal immigrants declines by 1 million, study finds

July 30th, 2008 . by TexasFred

By CLAY ZEIGLER / The Dallas Morning News

The number of illegal immigrants in the United States may have dropped by more than 1 million over the last year, according to a report issued Wednesday.

The Center for Immigration Studies in Washington said it estimates that the number of illegal immigrants nationally was 11.2 million in May, down from a peak of 12.5 million in August 2007.

Its numbers are estimates, the center said, based on data collected monthly by the Census Bureau on the number of foreign-born adults living in the U.S. The latest such data is from May.

The estimates are also based on the assumption that the “overwhelming majority�? of immigrants in the U.S. illegally are Hispanics who are younger adults with relatively little education. That assumption, the report said, is based on “a large body of research.�?

I want to clear something up, I have said this before, on numerous occasions, but apparently some of those folks suffering from a lack of reading comprehension skills have either missed it, misunderstood it, or, choose to ignore it as a matter of convenience.

I am NOT, in ANY way, against LEGAL immigration, I am the grandson of an immigrant, a LEGAL immigrant, a man that became an American, swore his allegiance to America, paid his taxes, raised his family to be good Americans.

His sons served this nation in the military. Most of his grandchildren have served, or, are still serving this nation in the military. His great grandchildren are serving this nation either in the military, law enforcement or both.

Legal immigrants have made this nation what it is, the greatest nation on earth, and a true melting pot of people and ideologies.

My gripe is with those that seek to destroy this nation by their illegal status, their refusal to become Americans, those that swear their allegiance to Mexico while living here, making their living, sending money to Mexico, and in many cases, not even paying taxes in this nation.

Those that denigrate America while living off of the fruits of this great land are the ILLEGALS I am so vehemently set against, those that will rape this nation, take and take and take, and give NOTHING in return, those that place a tremendous burden on ALL us, you and me, the LEGAL tax paying citizens of this great nation, those of us of ALL colors, races, religions and beliefs.

Anyone that can’t understand this is NOT the well educated Republican Conservative they claim to be. In my opinion, they are nothing more than a faux Conservative, one that embraces the beliefs of the libber left, and although their posts, on their own sites say one thing, their accusations against many others, in the comments sections of other blogs, speaks volumes to the statement of FAUX Conservatism being a FACT!

Faux Conservatives and RINOs? Stirring up as much hate and discontent in the blogosphere as possible. A short translation you say?? Blog Trolls.

Mexican drug cartels target bystanders

July 30th, 2008 . by TexasFred

GUAMUCHIL, Mexico - The three teenagers started their big weekend singing “Happy Birthday” to the parish priest.

The next day, they prayed for hours with their church youth group, then went on to a quinceañera, Mexico’s archetypal 15th-birthday celebration. As the party wound down, they talked their parents into letting them go for a late-night cruise down the main drag in Guamuchil, a Saturday night ritual in this sleepy market town, friends and family say.

During that cruise, investigators believe the teens inadvertently blocked drug cartel assassins in hot pursuit of their enemies. Once police arrived in the wee hours of July 13, the assassins were gone but the three teens and a 12-year-old girl who was riding with them lay dead in their cars. Four others — another teenager and three adults — were dead in nearby cars. There were 539 bullet casings on the ground.

The killings here — a massacre of eight people who were not suspected of drug-trafficking ties — punctuated a vicious turn in Mexico’s drug war, a savage conflict between rival cartels and the federal government that has taken more than 7,000 lives in the past 2 1/2 years.

Mexico’s drug cartels target bystanders

I am of the opinion that it is only a matter of time until this violence spills over to our streets right here in the USA.

The gangs are in place, our borders are wide open and the invaders and gang members are still pouring in, more and more every day. Basically unimpeded.

I’m an America 1st kind of guy, I believe in protecting this nation, OUR nation, and I am of the belief that we MUST close our border with Mexico, seal it. I also believe that we MUST place troops along that border, National Guard troops, and we must allow those troops free reign. *Shoot to KILL*, anyone crossing that border at anything other than a legal border crossing.

And I make no apology to ANYONE for taking that stance.

But because OF that stance I am called a racist, a NAZI, a hate monger, and an extreme right winger by a contributing writer at Real Clear Politics.

I want to make this VERY clear to all the folks that have been reading here from the link at Real Clear Politics, if my beliefs as to the way we need to protect America offend you, click the *X* up there at the top right of the screen and LEAVE. And don’t come back. I don’t NEED, nor do I want your kind of patronage.

If my wanting to protect this nation from the hordes of invaders offends you, if it makes you think I am a racist, then YOU are not a person I care to be associated with in any way. LEAVE, and don’t come back to this blog. I am NOT about to change my beliefs to suit YOU or any RINO, faux intellectual, over educated, under employed, career frustrated, so-called professor at some 5th rate community college.

Aztlan wants about 1/3 of this nation as theirs, not as a part of the USA, but as a nation of Aztlan, not the United States. They feel it is owed to then, that it was stolen from them by the Gringos, and they want it back.

We can fight now, or we can fight later, if there’s any of you out their that have the balls to fight and defend your homes.

The USA is our home, and if some of us don’t have the balls to stand and defend her, we won’t be long in losing our home, and anyone that doesn’t have the fortitude to stand and defend this nation can kiss my assumed to be racist, NAZI, hate mongering, and extreme right winger ass.

Does that spell it out well enough for you Donnie?
