Some Of You Have Been Wondering Where I’ve Been

Posted by Casey on September 28, 2007

No need to be concerned. I’ve been pretty busy lately with the station, and I am moving this weekend. I also just found out that my ‘minor’ knee injury was actually a fracture.

The knee injury happened at my gym … Striking Unlimited. We were working on the ground and pound, and getting the mount. I stepped over to get the mount, and my knee popped. It was loud, and very painful. The pain lasted about 5 minutes or so, and I was back to training.

My knees have popped on me for years, and I’ve been expecting to need surgery. Your body can only take so much football, and the Army caused its fair share of damage. Since popping was nothing new, and the pain went away for the most part … I figured it was nothing serious.

I continued to train the next couple of days with a brace on my knee, and limiting my knee strikes (once I found out that hurt like a bitch). I started to notice that my knee wasn’t feeling stable, and was constantly “crackling.” So I took a couple of days and rested before returning to the gym for an hour’s cardio. After that session … I knew something was wrong with my knee. I figured an MCL sprain.

I made an appointment for the doctor, he looked at it and sent me to get an x-ray and MRI. Once the tests were all done he called me to say that there was a problem. This is where things start to get weird.

My doctor isn’t a specialist with this sort of thing, but the x-rays and MRI came back with an ‘abnormality’ on my femur. This is strange since my pain was not in that region at all. He sent me to an orthopedic surgeon to figure out what exactly was wrong.

Now I went to the orthopedic surgeon’s office, and was put at ease in the waiting room. Frank Trigg was also a patient of my new doctor, and was in the waiting room with me. I talked with him for a little bit, but left him alone for the most part. I found out later that Trigg is making a comeback, and will likely be training at my gym … AWESOME!

The doctor came in and looked at my x-rays and MRI’s and found a couple of things wrong with me. He noted that I had a bruise on my bone, and a fractured knee. Naturally, I was stunned … as was he when he found out I’d been walking around for 3 weeks on a fractured knee. To make things more interesting … that ‘abnormality’ on my femur I told you about earlier turned out to be an old fracture I knew nothing about, and had healed on its own.

So, I not only fractured my knee and didn’t know about it, but at some point in my life I fractured my femur and didn’t know it. Crazy, I know. Anyway, the treatment is 5 weeks on crutches, no cast, and no training.

Note: I transfered my gym membership to my wife, and she’s kicking ass!

The doc is worried that my fracture may split and sever my ligaments so I’ve got to be careful … which I’m not, but that is another story that involves a NASCAR race.

In 5 weeks if it doesn’t look good … I have surgery to get the fracture pinned.

This couldn’t have happened at a worse time because I’m moving on Saturday, and I hadn’t budgeted for hiring movers which I now must do.

Things should settle down next week a little so I can update the blog more, but in the meantime enjoy the news feeds in the right sidebar. Don’t forget to check out the new merchandise I’ve made, and buy lots of it.

25 Democrats Refuse To Condemn ‘Betray Us’ Ad In Senate Vote

Posted by Casey on September 20, 2007


Hillary has been ducking, dodging and flat out refusing to respond to questions about the MoveOn.org ad taken out against Gen. Petraeus.

Today she had her chance to speak up with the rest of the Senate and condemn the ad … something that most Democrats have refrained from doing.

Amanda Carpenter:

Sen. Hillary Clinton (D.-N.Y.) would not criticize MoveOn.org on the campaign trail for an offensive advertisement the group produced to attack Army Gen. David H. Petraeus, but she sided with the anti-war lobby in a vote on Thursday.

Motivated by the full-page advertisement MoveOn.org published in the New York Times that accused Petraeus of betrayal, the Senate passed a resolution condemning “attacks of honor and integrity” on the general and other members of the Armed Forces.

The advertisement, purchased at a discounted rate, mocked Petraeus’ name as “Betray Us,” suggested he was “cooking the books” for the White House and characterized the general as a “military man constantly at war with the facts” who “will not admit what everyone knows: Iraq is mired in an unwinnable religious civil war.”

Texas Republican Sen. John Cornyn’s “sense of the Senate” resolution passed 72-25.

At least now we know which Democrats are so knee deep in MoveOn money they are willing to accuse a four star general of breaking the law, and violating his oath.

  1. Akaka (D-HI)
  2. Bingaman (D-NM)
  3. Boxer (D-CA)
  4. Brown (D-OH)
  5. Byrd (D-WV)
  6. Clinton (D-NY)
  7. Dodd (D-CT)
  8. Durbin (D-IL)
  9. Feingold (D-WI)
  10. Harkin (D-IA)
  11. Inouye (D-HI)
  12. Kennedy (D-MA)
  13. Kerry (D-MA)
  14. Lautenberg (D-NJ)
  15. Levin (D-MI)
  16. Menendez (D-NJ)
  17. Murray (D-WA)
  18. Reed (D-RI)
  19. Reid (D-NV)
  20. Rockefeller (D-WV)
  21. Sanders (I-VT)
  22. Schumer (D-NY)
  23. Stabenow (D-MI)
  24. Whitehouse (D-RI)
  25. Wyden (D-OR)

You can see the full role call here.

The following didn’t vote.

  1. Biden (D-DE)
  2. Cantwell (D-WA)
  3. Obama (D-IL)

You’ll notice that John Kerry voted against the measure to condemn the ad. This is odd given that he was one of only three Democrats to criticize the MoveOn ad shortly after it came out. Kerry is on record as saying the following:

WASHINGTON (CNN) – Sen. John Kerry, D-Massachusetts, criticized MoveOn.org Monday for taking an ad out in The New York Times criticizing Gen. David Petraeus. The general is testifying before Congress today about the situation in Iraq. (Related: Dems join GOP in slamming ad attacking Petraeus)

“I don’t like any kind of characterizations in our politics that call into question any active duty, distinguished general,” Kerry told CNN, adding “who I think under any circumstances serves with the best interests of our country.”

Gee, I wonder what changed his mind?

The GOP also asked the Democrat leadership to condemn the ad in an internal memo, but didn’t get many takers.

Today, Bush finally spoke out against the ad, and Democrats that support it, publicly for the first time. We have had reports that he was furious in private meetings.

In a press conference Thursday morning, President Bush told reporters he thought the advertisement was “disgusting.”

He also spoke candidly about Democrats who were reluctant to criticize MoveOn.org. “That leads me to come to this conclusion: that most Democrats are afraid of irritating a left-wing group like MoveOn.org, or more afraid of irritating them, then they are of irritating the United States military.”

“That was a sorry deal,” Bush said.

To top this whole thing off, Democrats have been running to hide under their desks to avoid having to go on record in support of the MoveOn ad. Dick “The Turbin” Durbin tried to block the vote from even happening.

Cornyn first offered his resolution immediately after the offending advertisement was printed on September 10—the day Petraeus was scheduled to make his first appearance to testify about progress in Iraq. When it was offered, Democratic Majority Whip, Sen. Dick Durbin (Ill.) used a parliamentary move–issued a point of order based on “germaneness”–against the measure to prevent the Senate from voting on it.

Make sure you don’t question their patriotism everyone.

Proof Syria & Iran Collaborate On Chemical Weapons

Posted by Casey on September 18, 2007

Hopefully you’ve heard about Israel (with the help of Turkey) attacking a nuclear cache in Syria the other day.

Now Jane’s Defense is reporting that a collaborative effort between Iran and Syria to make chemical weapons resulted in a severe accident.

Just so you know … Jane’s is the MOST respected source of its kind.

Proof of cooperation between Iran and Syria in the proliferation and development of weapons of mass destruction was brought to light Monday in a Jane’s Defence Weekly report that dozens of Iranian engineers and 15 Syrian officers were killed in a July 23 accident in Syria.

According to the report, cited by Channel 10, the joint Syrian-Iranian team was attempting to mount a chemical warhead on a Scud missile when the explosion occurred, spreading lethal chemical agents, including sarin nerve gas.

Anyone remember Iraqi General Georges Sada?

The John Kerry Taser Video

Posted by Casey on September 18, 2007

Funniest video ever!

You can see another angle here.

It turns out the student who got stunned is a bit of a prankster.

AP:

The student in the middle of it all, 21-year-old Andrew Meyer, had no comment after he was released on his recognizance on various charges following a night in jail.

But details from his online writings and videos raised the question of whether his harangue during the forum was genuine or some kind of stunt.

Meyer, a senior telecommunications major from the Fort Lauderdale suburb of Weston, has a Web site featuring several homemade videos. In one, he stands in a street with a sign that says “Harry Dies” after the latest Harry Potter book was released. In another, he acts like a drunk in a bar while trying to pick up a man dressed in drag.

The site also has what is called a “disorganized diatribe” attributed to Meyer that criticizes the Iraq war, the news media for not covering the conflict enough and the American public for paying too much attention to celebrity news.

Another site had pictures of Meyer licking a woman’s face and making a suggestive pose as he stood behind a fake cow. The site listed his activities as “getting wasted” and “being ridiculous.”

Whether he disrupted John ‘Baby Killer’ Kerry or not … he deserved to get tased.

Remember When Hillary Said Her Socialized Health Plan Wasn’t Socialized? Well, It Is.

Posted by Casey on September 18, 2007


Take the poll at the top right of this page …


UPDATE:

Will you be punished if you refuse to enroll in Hillary’s new socialist health plan?

Many of you will remember when Hillary was asked by black journalists about the negative effects of her socialized health plan on the black community … she responded by saying:

“I have never advocated socialized medicine. That has been a right-wing attack on me for 15 years.”

Yesterday, Hillary rolled out her new “American Health Choices Plan.” Well, it turns out that her ‘non-socialized’ health plan is very much … socialized.

To refresh everyone on what socialized and socialized medicine means, I have included the following definitions:

Socialized Medicine:

Socialized medicine can refer to any system of medical care controlled and financed by the government.

Socialize:

1. To place under government or group ownership or control.
2. To make fit for companionship with others; make sociable.
3. To convert or adapt to the needs of society.

There, now we are all up to speed on what we are actually talking about here.

On Hillary’s own website, you can read the summary of the plan in her own words.

Before we get started I’d like to point out that the idea you can increase the number of people insured, and increase the benefits while reducing the cost is absurd at best. Especially when you are talking about a minimum of 47 million new people.

This Plan covers every American – finally addressing the needs of the 47 million uninsured and the tens of millions of workers with coverage who fear they could be one pink slip away from losing their health coverage – with no overall increase in health spending or taxes. For those with health insurance, the plan builds on the current system to give businesses and their employees greater choice of health plans – including keeping the one they have – while lowering cost and improving quality. Specifically, the American Health Choices Plan will:

The language makes it sound good, but again you can’t increase the number of the insured, and provide more benefits for less cost. This is grade school math people.

The Same Choice of Health Plan Options that Members of Congress Receive:
Americans can keep their existing coverage or access the same menu of quality private insurance options that their Members of Congress receive through a new Health Choices Menu, established without any new bureaucracy as part of the Federal Employee Health Benefit Program (FEHBP). In addition to the broad array of private options that Americans can choose from, they will be offered the choice of a public plan option similar to Medicare.

A Guarantee of Quality Coverage:

The new array of choices offered in the Menu will provide benefits at least as good as the typical plan offered to Members of Congress, which includes mental health parity and usually dental coverage.

Notice that they will have a ‘public plan’ to choose from. That’s socialized medicine.

Americans who are satisfied with the coverage they have today can keep it, while benefiting from lower premiums and higher quality.

Again … not possible.

Reducing Costs:
By removing hidden taxes, stressing prevention and a focus on efficiency and modernization, the plan will improve quality and lower costs.

Strengthening Security:
The plan ensures that job loss or family illnesses will never lead to a loss of coverage or exorbitant costs.

End to Unfair Health Insurance Discrimination:
By creating a level-playing field of insurance rules across states and markets, the plan ensures that no American is denied coverage, refused renewal, unfairly priced out of the market, or forced to pay excessive insurance company premiums.

This is the part that people will roll with their emotions on. Certainly, no one wants to be denied insurance, and I’d support that provision by itself. However, to not allow an insurance company to set their premium based on the health of the insured is blatant socialism. Many small companies will go under because of this provision. I don’t believe people should not be able to get insurance, but I also believe that a company has the right to charge an appropriate premium based on the financial risk of the insured.

Relying on consumers or the government alone to fix the system has unintended consequences, like scaled-back coverage or limited choices. This plan ensures that all who benefit from the system share in the responsibility to fix its shortcomings.

This is damn risky! This allows the consumer influence over how a company operates. A company in a free market economy has the right to operate as it sees fit. Sometimes it works … sometimes not. That’s what the market is for. You do not let the customer tell the company how to do business.

Insurance and Drug Companies:
insurance companies will end discrimination based on pre-existing conditions or expectations of illness and ensure high value for every premium dollar; while drug companies will offer fair prices and accurate information.

Individuals:
will be required to get and keep insurance in a system where insurance is affordable and accessible.

Providers:
will work collaboratively with patients and businesses to deliver high-quality, affordable care.

Employers:
will help financing the system; large employers will be expected to provide health insurance or contribute to the cost of coverage: small businesses will receive a tax credit to continue or begin to offer coverage.

Government:
will ensure that health insurance is always affordable and never a crushing burden on any family and will implement reforms to improve quality and lower cost.

It doesn’t get more socialize than to REQUIRE that all people get health insurance. What if I don’t want health insurance? Maybe I have a medical savings account, or maybe I have enough money to pay cash for any medical issue that arises. Oh wait … I get it now. I am going to be required to pay into the system so that my money will help cover the cost of those that are unhealthy who now get a discount on their premiums. I’M BEING TAXED!

Go to Hillary’s site to read the last provisions of the plan.

At the very least, most Americans will now pay more money for their health care than they were before so we can provide lower cost insurance to people who have health problems. The plan is categorically unfair to those Americans that don’t want health insurance for whatever reason.

To top it all off … a very prudent question was asked about the plan that ‘requires’ all people to enroll. Will it cover illegals, or just American citizens?

Now Hillary has been working on this plan for over a decade now. You’d think she would have thought about this all important issue. Especially since illegals are such a massive burden on our medical industry. In fact, this could be the most important aspect of the plan’s success or failure. So what was her response?

Senior [Clinton] policy adviser Laurie Rubiner–-while acknowledging that undocumented immigrants are a “huge issue” in this country–-said, “That’s one we’re going to have to think through a little bit.”

“We have not dealt with every single detail with this plan,” Rubiner continued.

They haven’t even bothered to address the issue yet?

There is a couple of things to look at here. One of those being that illegals cost the medical industry about $35 billion a year. Which raises health care costs and premiums.

  1. If illegals are not required to enroll … will they still receive the same medical care as everyone else?
  2. If so, won’t premiums and costs continue to increase as the financial burden grows … as it does now?
  3. If they are required to enroll … will we then deport them as they come forward?
  4. If not, how can we confirm their income, and will their employers be punished?

If illegals are not required to enroll, but still receive the same benefits as Americans do you will see a backlash of which the likes have never been seen before.

I’m also wondering if abortion will be covered, but I think we all know the answer to that question.

Here’s The Deal …

Posted by Casey on September 16, 2007

For those of you who know who I am, you know that I have been one of the most prominent voices in proving wmd’s were found in Iraq. I have caved to the requests from my audience, and I am working on a book. All of this means nothing, and only serves as an introduction to those who don’t know who I am.

Every time I do a show about wmd’s in Iraq I get calls from military personnel who confirm my claims. They always seem to come out of the woodwork a week or so after I do a segment on it, and they often show up in person. They rarely have any proof, but describe what was found.

Today, an audience member brought a hard drive to me at the studio. He was a civilian contractor in Iraq for KBR. He was primarily stationed in al Asad and Anaconda. The hard drive is 100GB of pictures and video from Iraq.

On this hard drive are images of weapons … including wmd’s … loaded and ready to fire. These have not been seen by anyone other than his circle of friends, and he has given me free use of the photos.

No, they are not classified.

I am working on confirming the official designation of the weapons, and will be posting the images in just a few days on this site. If you know of any places I can go to look at pictures of wmd munitions so I can identify these … please let me know by using the “Contact Me” link at the top of this page.

Ethno-Sectarian Murders In Iraq Down 55% Since 2006

Posted by Casey on September 12, 2007

Another tidbit of progress for you to digest that you won’t hear anywhere in the MSM.

MNF-I:

The number of ethno-sectarian murders has declined significantly since the height of the sectarian violence in December 2006.

Iraq-wide, the number of ethno-sectarian deaths has decreased by over 55 percent, and it would have decreased much further if it not for the casualties inflicted by barbaric al-Qaeda bombings attempting to reignite sectarian violence.
