DOMESTIC SPYING ? NOT ACCORDING TO FISA - THE SUNDAY COMMENTARY
First let us set the record straight. This is not nor ever has been a, "domestic spying, " program. The NSA is not the least bit interested in what you and I have to say in our private phone conversations. Their responsibility concerns the gathering of foreign intelligence that has the capability of threatening our national security so they have no interest in what Aunt Martha is cooking for this weeks family reunion.
Second this program IS legal based on certain statutes within the FISA, (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, ) instituted in 1978. The FISA act states that the President has the authority with the written under oath consent of the Attorney General to use electronic surveillance without a warrant against any foreign , "agent, " for up to one year as long as there is not a substantial likelihood that the intercepted intelligence does not involve a , "United States person." This is where the left has attempted to portray the President as breaking the law since the intercepts that were acquired did involve Al Qaeda operatives that were in the United States at the time. But as usual only half of the story is being released because they have neglected to state the definition of , "United States person." The FISA act states that a warrant in not needed as stated above IF the individual is an , "agent, " of a foreign entity whether within or without of the United States therefore they are considered a , "non - United States person." FISA describes a non United States person as one who " - act in the United States as an officer or employee of a foreign power, or as a member of a terrorist organization, Ã?‚Ã?Â§ 1801(b)(1)(A)
- act for or on behalf of a foreign power that engages in clandestine intelligence activities in the United States contrary to U.S. interests when (1) the circumstances of such persons' presence in the United States "indicate that such person may engage in such activities, or (2) when such person knowingly aids or abets any person, or conspires with any person to engage in such activities." 50 U.S.C. Ã?‚Ã?Â§ 1801(b)(1)(B). " Additionally FISA states that, "American citizens and permanent residents are "agents" if they knowingly engage in espionage for a foreign power or intelligence service, and such activities "are about to involve" a violation of U.S. laws--any criminal laws, not just espionage. Ã?‚Ã?Â§1801(b)(2)(B). " In accordance with FISA each of the above qualifies as a , "non - United States person, " and is subject to surveillance without warrant for up to one year. These FISA statutes give the President and the NSA the legal authorization to institute the Al Qaeda surveillance program and to continue it for national security.
Personally I believe that if the President HAD NOT authorized this vital program to intercept intelligence between Al Qaeda operatives over seas and in the US then he would have been guilty of an impeachable offense for failing to fulfill his first responsibility as President to, "preserve and protect. " Though this story continues to have momentum it will whither on the vine as other left wing orchestrated scandals against the President have. The real issue of this, "scandal, " is lost because of the lefts longing to hang Bush out to dry on falsely created scandals. Who leaked this national security secret vital to our countries protection to the New York Times and what business did the Times have in printing the story knowing the security risks that it created ? One can only hope that when the Justice Departments investigation is completed that these questions will be answered and prosecuted accordingly.

A response to the Roe vs. Wade issue
I, myself don't care about it anymore because of all the hysteria over the subject. I have found myself bored with the issue. But I have a possible solution.
We let you keep abortion, and San Francisco, and we get control of the tax code and the military. And Rob, don't be so paranoid. I hear its bad for you. Besides, IM sure next year, at this time, you will still be able to kill a baby if you want.
Sorry if this comes off a little rude, but can we get on to other issues( like terrorist)?
P.S. For all you libs, by terrorist, I don't mean Bush.

CANADIANS VOTE CONSERVATIVE

Bin Laden - "Praise be to God, our conditions are always improving and becoming better, while your conditions are to the contrary ......... The war in Iraq is raging, and the operations in Afghanistan are on the rise in our favor, praise be to God. "
John Kerry - ""Many people surmise that one of the reasons we haven't been attacked here, is because they are being so successful at doing what they need to do to attack us in Iraq and elsewhere."
War sometimes makes strange allies. Whether it is a concentrated effort on behalf of the left, which for their sake and the countries I pray is not the case or the extending of the politics of hatred for the President run amok this aid to the enemy is a dangerous road to take and will continue to hamper our ability to secure this nation and protect her people.

OSAMA BIN LADEN:SEEKING OFFICE AS A DEMOCRAT ? - THE SUNDAY COMMENTARY
Bin Laden - "US opinion polls, which indicated that the overwhelming majority of you want the withdrawal of the forces from Iraq, but he objected to this desire and said that the withdrawal of troops would send a wrong message to the enemy."
Although their are many polls that are negative against the war the majority do not favor a pull out. Yet John Murtha continually states that the American people are demanding that we immediately pull out and now Bin Laden agrees.
Bin Laden - " The war in Iraq is raging, and the operations in Afghanistan are on the rise in our favor, praise be to God. The Pentagon figures indicate the rise in the number of your dead and wounded, let alone the huge material losses, and let alone the collapse of the morale of the soldiers there and the increase in the suicide cases among them."
We have heard again from John Murtha that our military is in a shambles and that moral is terrible yet to hear the soldiers and military leaders speak just the opposite is the case.
Bin Laden - "Documents have recently showed that the butcher of freedom in the world [US President Bush]"
Harry Belefonte just called President Bush the worlds worst terrorist.
Bin Laden -"Jihad is continuing, praise be to God, despite all the repressive measures the US army and its agents take to the point where there is no significant difference between these crimes and those of Saddam. These crimes include the raping of women and taking them hostage instead of their husbands."
Ted Kennedy stated that the Abu Gharib prison just exchanged the atrocities of Saddam Hussein for those of the United States. John Kerry just recently claimed that our troops were terrorizing Iraqi women and children in the night.
Bin Laden - "In fact, reports indicate that the defeat and devastating failure of the ill-omened plan of the four - Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Wolfowitz - and the announcement of this defeat and working it out, is only a matter of time, which is to some extent linked to the awareness of the American people of the magnitude of this tragedy."
Howard Dean stated that to believe that we could win in Iraq was ridiculous. Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and countless other Democrats time and again have stated that we have no plan or, "exit strategy."
Bin Laden - "If Bush declines but to continue lying and practicing injustice..."
The Democrat agenda is that the president lied us into war.
If this does not prove that the agenda of political destruction at the expense of the country, our men and women in uniform and even our way of life all for political gain is giving aid and comfort to the enemy the I don't know what will. When the leader of that enemy uses the very words of political opposition to rally his followers and make statements against this country and our leaders then the descent and political rhetoric have gone way to far. This, "truce, " that has been offered is an attempt to appease the left into fervently pushing for ending this war before full victory and the completion of the mission is accomplished. Islamic law states that a truce is offered before the slaughter takes place. Additionally in any war those at the disadvantage speak of truce to give time to regroup and rebuild their forces. This proves that Al Qaeda is severely damaged and is on the run. Thank God that the President understands this and will continue to prosecute this war until the final defeat of terrorists.

MEMORIES OF PRESIDENT REAGAN - FAREWELL MR. PRESIDENT AND THANK YOU
He always referred to them as, "the "L" word", ("L" of course meaning liberal). They.... well they regarded him with disdain in many ways yet that disdain contained a great respect for a great man. They said," Oh he's just an actor." He said, "I don't see how you can be President without being an actor." He then became one of our greatest Presidents and possibly the greatest of the twentieth century. They said, " we have to accept communism and for our own safety live under it's threat." He said, "Mr Gorbechev tear down this wall, " and the wall came down along with the collapse of the, "evil empire," and those states held under its iron fist. They said, " we, as Americans must grow accustomed to a lesser way of life." He said, "America will always be a shining city on a hill," and we were once again proud to wave the flag and shed a tear as we sang of, "the rockets red glare." They said, "The answer to our problems is government expansion and more entitlements." He said, " Government is not the answer to the problem, Government is the problem!" With those words entitlements decreased, regulations relaxed, government intrusion in our lives lessoned and we as a country prospered. They said, "we'll pay for it with more taxes." He said, "give the people their money back and watch what they do." His trust and faith in the American people brought the largest tax cut, (up until that time), in American history and the people did not disappoint him. Millions of jobs were created, income grew at a record pace and the country recovered from the worst economy since the depression. He left office after eight tremendous years and they said, " his influence will fade." That influence only grew as we realized how much he meant to us. He then shared with his beloved America the fear and sadness of a failing mind due to a devastating disease. Even then his faith in us and his belief in America shined through the sorrow. As the years passed they said, "all of our problems come from the excess of the 80's ." On June 5, 2004 his long battle ended as he left his beloved America for the last time. On his behalf, the American people responded to them by the millions with an outpouring of love for this man from Dixon, Illinois who taught each of us how to be an American! Now he sits beside Lincoln and Washington as the guardian angels of liberty and freedom, forever reminding us that this, "shining city on a hill, " this country and this flag that we so dearly love will always be a beacon of hope to the world. Thank you and farewell Mr. President!......Ronald Wilson Reagan 1911-2004

THE REAGAN LEGACY AND TODAY'S REPUBLICANS - THE SUNDAY COMMENTARY
President Reagan was the father of the conservative movement and left that legacy as the true core of the Republican Party. When he took office January 20, 1981 America was in a sad state of affairs. His predecessor, Jimmy Carter had decimated the military and through his economic programs we were suffering an inflation rate of more than 20%. Throughout the world America was seen as weak and unable to defend our interests which gave rise to the Iran hostage crises which lasted throughout the last year and a quarter of Carter's Presidency. We as a nation under Carter had been told in speech after speech that the best days of America were behind us and that we must get accustomed to a lesser way of life and Soviet dominance in the world. Reagan neither believed nor accepted this. He brought with him a confidence and optimism in America that gave us as Americans the will to once again proudly wave the flag. His economic programs which centered around less government and giving the people their own money through tax cuts rebuilt a failing economy and we experienced what was up until that time the largest growth in the economy since WWII. He called the Soviet Union , "the evil empire, " and though highly criticized stood strong against communist expansionism and in 1989 the fall of the Soviet Union was the result.
Today's Republicans envolk his name and make claim to the Reagan legacy but do they truly follow his example ? From a military standpoint the answer is yes. Though there are times when some in the Republican Party are guilty of flip-flopping on defense as a whole the Reagan philosophy of a strong defense and using that defense to better our national interests and security is still at the core of the Republican Party. President Bush is very much in the Reagan mold when it comes to protecting our nation. Economically though is very much a different matter. President Reagan believed that government could not solve our problems because, "government was the problem." He understood that government was the servant of the people not the oppressor of the people. He believed in less government involvement and regulation and more incentive for business and the individual to shape their own lives with as little government intervention as possible. He believed in less spending, smaller government and tax cuts which created greater government revenue because as the people worked and spent the economy grew which in turn created revenue. The idea of tax cuts is still part of the Republican agenda but less government has fallen by the wayside. I will admit that in the last few months the majority and the President have come around somewhat but to emulate Reagan they still have quite a way to go. For President Bush and the House and Senate Republicans to follow the Reagan example then spending must decrease, entitlements are not and never will be the answer and the growth of government must be reversed. When it comes to government Reagan understood that less is more which is something that today's Republicans have forgotten.The, "shining city on a hill, " that President Reagan believed was America still exists though some of its glimmer is tarnished with out of control spending. Patriotism is strong and the belief that we are the true hope for liberty in a world filled with despots and dictators who oppress their land into submission is as true today as it was with Reagan and before. Does Reagan's America still work ? Of course it does. His legacy to us will always shine through each of us as we believe in who we are and never take for granted the freedom and liberty that make us the great nation that we are. He new as we all should that once freedom is taken for granted it is then that we lose it. President Reagan said it best, " Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom, and then lost it, have never known it again." Thank you President Reagan for everything!

How Reagan Changed my life
After the Carter administration, America needed strong leadership. The kind of leadership that would stare in the face of evil and not back down. America had some foreign policy matters that had been left unsolved in Iran. We also faced the tyranny of USSR. Not to mention an economy that had been left in shambles. Everyone at the time new it would take a determined and strong leader to take us in to the 1980's. And Ronald Reagan was the man for the job.
What I remember most about Reagan was his sense of humor. Even in the most dyer situations, he could always bring a smile to your face. To many of us in the 80's he served as a father figure. A man whom stood for what he believed in, and never backed down.
As a child I needed to see someone like this. My childhood was not the happiest, but I always knew that we were safe, the economy was well off, and by knowing that I could sleep at night without worry.
The biggest effect that Reagan had on my life, well that's hard to say. He stood for all the things I was taught in church and at home. He spoke like people in my hometown, (no big wig Washington talk) and when there was a big problem facing the country, He took it to the American public. Reagan represented the best America had to offer. He often said that America's best asset are it's citizens. You and me. I think that is something that the American people need to hear from politicians. It gives us hope for a better tomorrow. It give us the kind of confidence that helped to build our great nation.
I don't know if we will ever see another Reagan. But we all always looking for one. Every Republican since him has been compared to him, or has invoked his name during campaigns. I always hear people on the street (during campaign season) refer to his name when speaking about this guy or that guy. The effect Reagan had on this nation was a once in a lifetime event. Not only did he change the face of the Republican party, he changed the face of a nation. And for that we will always be grateful.

THE IRRESPONSIBLE MEDIA - THE SUNDAY COMMENTARY
This brand of irresponsible journalism began during the Vietnam War as the media turned against the war and through their reporting, leaving out facts and reporting only body counts and perceived American atrocities, (which since have been proven false in nearly all cases), turned the country against the war and the troops. Whether one was in favor of the war or not the agenda based media accounts of the war are directly responsible for the countries reversal and eventual loss of Vietnam. Another instance that gave rise to today's brand of journalism was Watergate. Although the Nixon administration did perform illegal acts and Nixon most likely would have been impeached had he not resigned, the media gained an overwhelming feeling of power as they realized that their reporting had the ability to bring down a sitting President.
Today's, "journalists, " are taking this agenda based unsubstantiated reporting to a new level of extremism that is not only irresponsible but dangerous to our national security. Their blatant attacks through their reporting of our troops, their Commander in Chief and selective reporting of the war gives rise to our enemy thinking that they are defeating the United States and emboldens them to further their terrorist activities. When a news agency has the ability to expose a national security program, (the NSA, Al Qaeda wire tap surveillance), as the New York Times has, then use this leak to promote the book of the reporter covering the story and be treated as hero's by the rest of the media and the left for threatening our security and this nation then irresponsible journalism becomes a danger and crosses the line of treason. When our Founding Fathers placed freedom of the press in the first amendment their intent was freedom with responsibility and with discretion when the security of the nation was at risk. This was widely practiced in WWII and other conflicts that involved the United States. Journalist were Americans first and reporters second and understood that they could risk our troops and our country by their reporting and as such used discretion as they reported wars and then reported the whole story and not one that supported a certain agenda. Today's out of control reporting would cause Edward R. Murrow to roll over in his grave were he to see what the media has become. Will it change, I think not. Unfortunately one day devastation will result because of irresponsible reporting and then who will the media blame!
