Again the left lies to the public in order to garnish sympathy and mislead the American public into thinking that the Bush policies in reguards to embryonic stem cell research are keeping America behind the rest of the world in this “essential” research.

Don’t let the facts hit you between the eyes!
Yep it has been proven, yet again, that the left’s hypothesis holds no water.

Falling Behind?
Another embryonic-stem-cell claim refuted.
By Yuval Levin

Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have made clear that overturning President Bush’s embryonic-stem-cell-research-funding policy will be high on their agenda when they take the reins of the Congress. So come January, it seems we are in for yet another performance of the great stem-cell drama on Capitol Hill.

Opponents of the president’s funding policy have by now repeated their lines in this drama so often that every observer has come to know them by heart: It seems 100 million people are sick (every third American?), only embryonic stem cells can help them (based on what proof?), and by insisting on withholding taxpayer dollars from newly derived lines of cells, President Bush is preventing progress and cures, and causing American scientists to fall behind their counterparts abroad.

This bizarre morality tale is told and retold ad nauseam, and has surely sunk in. But now and then, some fragment of fact breaks through the din and threatens the narrative, and for just a brief moment — before that fact, too, is pushed to the side — it seems like the story might fall apart.

The latest such troublesome truth has to do with what is usually the final piece of the great stem-cell narrative: that American scientists are falling behind foreigners because of the Bush-administration’s funding policy. That policy, let us recall, does provide (and for the first time) funding for embryonic-stem-cell research, but only for lines of cells that existed before the policy came into effect, not for those created after. That way, taxpayer dollars (more than $100 million so far) can advance the research, but without encouraging the ongoing destruction of human embryos.

Again the MSM doesn’t even mention the study.
Anything that is anti-liberal does not get reported.

Navy beat Army this weekend, which upset me, it is the fifth straight loss to the Navy by Army which really begs the question; why the hell is this coach still there? But, I digress…

The Navy has stood up to San Franfreako and their liberal politics!
I think all of the military should leave the SF area completely.

In fact, I think they should be left to fend for themselves.
Let the homos and other deviants of that city “defend” themselves.

I will never again visit that city, nor purchase anything that is developed in that city.
This veteran isn’t going to play their BS.

Way to go Navy! Go Navy beat San Fransisco!

Navy scuttles plan to commission warship here, citing local politics

Secretary of the Navy Donald C. Winter vetoed plans to commission the Makin Island, the Navy’s newest and most powerful warship, in San Francisco in 2008 because of a perception that the city is anti-military.

Retired Marine Corps Maj. Gen. J. Michael Myatt, chairman of a high-powered committee that was to support a commissioning ceremony for the Makin Island, said he has been informed that the ship would not be commissioned in San Francisco, as scheduled, but in San Diego.

Myatt said he had been told that the Navy was concerned about San Francisco’s refusal to provide a homeport for the retired battleship Iowa, which would be turned into a museum, and for the city school board’s decision to abolish junior ROTC training in San Francisco high schools.

One of the factors that turned the Pentagon against San Francisco, he said, was widely quoted anti-military remarks made by various city politicians. Some of the remarks got considerable attention, especially ones made by Gerardo Sandoval, a member of the Board of Supervisors, who was quoted on national television as saying national defense should be left to “the cops and the Coast Guard.”

“We Support Our Troops…When They Shoot Their Officers”

If there’s one slogan that’s come to represent the anti-war movement in its current incarnation, it’s one that appeared on a banner in a March 15 demonstration in San Francisco. It bore the message,“We Support Our Troops, When They Shoot Their Officers.” This banner has been seen around the world and cited in more than 400 publications.

You can see the creator of the banner in the photograph; he’s the one on the right wearing the black ski-mask (being assisted by activist Kevin Keating). He recently spoke with me about the mythology that’s grown up around it. As much as “Mike” would have liked to show the human face behind the ski-mask, he couldn’t allow his real name or any other personal information to be published because he’s going through a background check. (And if he passes, the system is definitely broken.)

Battleship Brouhaha

SEAN HANNITY, CO-HOST: As we continue “Hannity & Colmes” from San Francisco tonight, the board of supervisors here overwhelmingly voted to reject a plan last year that would bring the historic World War II Iowa battleship right here to San Francisco harbor, as a museum and tourist center.

We’re now joined by one of the supervisors that voted against that plan, Gerardo Sandoval is with us.

Welcome to the show. You just said something to me as we were coming on the air. You don’t want a symbol of war in the harbor. Is what you said to me.

GERARDO SANDOVAL, MEMBER OF SAN FRANCISCO BOARD OF SUPERVISORS: That’s right.

HANNITY: I guess this is just a difference in philosophy. That symbol of war that beat back the forces of fascism in imperial Japan and Nazism, that’s really a symbol of peace. Why would you see it as a symbol of war when it defended liberty and freedom?

There are plenty more examples of the anti-military shenanigans that this lousy city has done, just do the search.

Piss on SF.
