World Newswatch June 7, 2007 A.D.

It is comforting to know that the most powerful countries in the world are going to do something about the climate change. I am sure if all the politicians just shut up, all that hot air they won't be releasing will help more than anything else mere humans can do. It is the height of arrogance to think we can change the climate by anything we do. One volcanic eruption will undo all of our efforts, one shift of the jet stream can wreak havoc, in one area things can be beautiful and in another, like the end of the world. Who's to say that the most optimum climate temperatures for humankind are not coming into being with a little warming? I guess it's easier to worry about something you can't do anything about than to worry about the things you can do something about. Little does the world know, all we really need to do is take the hurricane/typhoon/tornado/ earthquake machine away from Bush. That will solve all our problems, right? Just as simple as turning down the earth's thermostat.

Well, here we have another banner for the old double standard. Clinton's perjury and Libby's were about the same, but Clinton got a pass. And he was found to have purposely "misled". Libby was also convicted but with no crime committed he was really entrapped. The president should pardon Libby when the litigation dust settles. It probably will not happen since the President is gunshy and gets castigated in the press for every move and deed. Not that everything this President does is correct in my eyes or even beneficial to our country, like the next topic.

D.O.A. is the way this should have ended. Our President and Senators have let US down. I can only think it is for big business. Why else would they want all these low paid unskilled migrants to become citizens and drain our already overburdened social safety nets? Is it payback for votes? Campaign contributions? All I can say is when the politicians livelihooods are undercut will they see why people like me detest their pandering. Let an infusion of third world politicians invade and work for half of what they (current politicians)need to financially survive and I think their voting would be different. Industies are being decimated and it is the very presence of all these unassimilated foreigners who do not speak our language that is driving away Americans that would do these jobs everybody says they won't do. I would never want to work where I was a minority on the crew and could not understand the language being spoken when I was in my own country. It is no wonder American kids don't want to go out and do construction work anymore, they are a minority in their own country. I guess if we are just going to worship the almighty dollar, this is where it will end up. Our border should mean somethin, our national language should mean something. We are Americans and we live in America.

Whoever can invent a fuel that will empower the world economy will be richer than 100 Bill Gates'. I tell my kids that often, that is why they should study hard. And not just for the riches, but think of the good for the world an alternative fuel would provide. Although then all the fighting would be directed toward a different subject.

"Don't forget about me", says Kim Jong Ill. It must be difficult to try to rejoin the fraternity of Nations when a temper tantrum is the only way you get noticed.

Definitely an important world changeing event. Paris is burning.

Sooner or later Mushaaraf will go and then there will be Hell to pay.

I agree on the point that to many foreigners do harm a country rather than help. It's important to let poor people in and help them. But if it comes to a point where there are just to many foreigners so the own population is afflicted with it politicians should think about letting them all in much more wiser. The point is it does not help the foreigners either being in a country that cannot handle such a situation. Just look at France how they seem not to be able to be organised properly with all the immigrants. And I truly believe such immigrants will even have a harder life living in such conditions than if they lived back in their country.

Hi: You have an excellent blog.

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin with troops at Ft. Wainwright

Dear Californian:

On June 21 (Thursday) I sent the following e-mail to a noted conservative author regarding as column he'd written about what seems to many "the inevitability of President Hillary Clinton." I urge you to read it and take the action I suggest.

Dear Dan:

A growing number of bloggers have been working hard to build up support for conservative Gov. Sarah Palin (Alaska) for the vice-presidential slot on the Republican ticket. Dan, I noticed you had a column in TH today that said the Republicans needed to nominate a "good candidate" like Fred Thompson to beat Hillary.

Dan, with all due respect, Fred Thompson (age 65 now), running with another older white guy (and I'm an older white guy) on a traditionally "balanced ticket" is NOT going to defeat Hillary Clinton. For all his strengths as an individual, Fred is not the kind of dynamic, high-energy candidate that, on his own, can defeat a ticket headed by Mrs. Clinton.

We might wish that were not true, but "if wishes were horses, beggars would ride." Even Rush Limbaugh has admitted that it's very likely that, given the current crop of Republican candidates, the next President will be Mrs. Clinton.

Clearly, we need to take decisive actions to change the dynamics of this campaign, and the best way to do that is by focusing on the vice-presidential slot.

I've spent many hours working to sign up bloggers and other supporters for Sarah. Take a look at the material on my blog ( about Sarah -- and check out what some of the other Bloggers 4 Palin (links on my site) have said about her.

My point: Running a conventional campaign with conventional candidates isn't a winning strategy. A Fred Thompson-Sarah Palin ticket would have a chance and so, I believe, would other tickets including Sarah.

Many surveys of recent elections show the Republicans have problems with women voters, especially those working as teachers, lawyers, doctors, nurses, and journalists. Since 2004, we've also had trouble with younger voters -- and, in 2006, even with evangelical Christians.

Sarah is a professional (journanlist), a dedicated Christian, a lifetime member of the NRA, a wife and a mother of four. She can reach out to several groups where we desperately need support. She's a charismatic figure who, in the last election, defeated the best-known Republican in the state (Frank Murkowski) and then polished off the best-known Democrat (Tony Knowles). She's very feminine in appearance, but she's a tough cookie (as Murkowski and Knowles discovered).

Sarah is the person who should be the first female vice-president. After that, about 2012 or 2016, she could be the first female President. If that scenario doesn't hold, then the nation's initial female President will be Hillary Clinton.

We Republicans have NO other female alternative than Sarah, whose approval rating in Alaska has been 80%-plus.

To reiterate, we need to take a different approach in this election. If we don't, then we had better get used to eight years of President Hillary Clinton. The choice is just that stark.

I hope you'll agree with me on the key points -- and that you'll join the Bloggers 4 Palin. Let me know your decision either by return e-mail or by leaving a comment on my site at Thanks for your consideration.

P.S. I firmly believe the time to act is now -- and not when the "iceberg" (one of Mrs. Clinton's nicknames) looms right in front of us. Yes, our "ship" may go down, but only if we allow it to.
