President George W. Bush talks with his father, former President George H.W. Bush during the Inaugural Parade in Washington, D.C., Jan. 20, 2001.

In the time-honored Navy tradition, Dorothy “Doro” Bush Koch will give the order to “man our ship and bring her to life!”


(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – The Navy’s newest nuclear-powered aircraft carrier George H. W. Bush will be commissioned Saturday, Jan. 10th, 2009, during an 11 AM EST ceremony at Naval Station Norfolk, Virginia.

President George W. Bush will deliver the principal address. Dorothy “Doro” Bush Koch, daughter of the ship’s namesake, is the ship’s sponsor. In the time-honored Navy tradition, she will give the order to “man our ship and bring her to life!”

The lastNimitz-class aircraft carrier is named to honor World War II naval aviator and America’s 41st president George H. W. Bush. Born on June 12, 1924, in Milton, Mass., Bush began a lifetime of service to America when he joined the Navy on his 18th birthday as a seaman. He became the youngest pilot in the Navy at the time, receiving his commission and naval aviator wings before his 19th birthday.

Bush flew the Avenger torpedo bomber in combat from the carrier USS San Jacinto. During an attack on enemy installations near Chichi Jima in September 1944, his plane was hit by enemy fire while making a bombing run. Although the plane was on fire and heavily damaged, he completed a strafing run on the target before bailing out of the doomed aircraft. Bush parachuted into the sea and was later rescued by the Navy submarine USS Finback. He was later awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross and three Air Medals for his Navy service in the Pacific theater during World War II.

After his time in the Navy ended in September 1945, Bush held a number of public service roles that included two terms as a U.S. congressman from Texas, ambassador to the United Nations, chief of the U.S. Liaison Office to China and director of the Central Intelligence Agency. He then served two terms as vice president under the late President Ronald Reagan before being elected himself as President of the United States in 1988. As commander-in-chief, Bush led the United States and a coalition of nearly 30 other nations during Operation Desert Storm, which ended Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait and liberated the people of the Persian Gulf nation.

    I have been searching for a link for this quote:

    President-Elect Obama’s chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, recently said: “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” Emanuel–

    Compare that to the quotes from the euobserver article:

    She said that hopes that out of the economic crisis, governments can construct a new architecture for managing global capitalism.

    “Our response [to the economic crisis] must be more than a few rules,” she said. “The crisis is an opportunity to create an international architecture of institutions.”


    The centre-right German leader also warned businesses there was no returning to laissez-faire approaches by governments once the crisis has passed.

    “Once everything is going better, the financial markets will tell us: ‘you politicians don’t need to get involved because everything is working again’,” she said, according to the Guardian. “I will stay firm, we must not repeat the mistakes of the past.”

    Hi, katy!

    Here’s one article quoting Emanuel:


    But now that we have the equivalent of an economic 9/11, much of the same crowd sees its chance to lock in ideas that would be unthinkable during saner times, this time in the name of “economic security.”

    As Rahm Emanuel, President-elect Barack Obama’s incoming chief of staff, said last month, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste; it’s an opportunity to do important things that you would otherwise avoid.”

    So much for “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”

    Yesterday, a caller on Rush Limbaugh’s show referred to Obama as a “turtle on a fence post”. I also have wondered who put him there and why.
    Perhaps better questions are: who has the power to carry him to the post and put him on top, and why him?

    From Phil Berg:

    01/09/2009: PRESS RELEASE – Berg states U.S. Supreme Court has “not” made a public decision regarding Berg vs. Obama U.S. Supreme Court Case

    (Lafayette Hill, PA – 01/09/09) – Philip J. Berg, Esquire, the Attorney who filed suit against Barack H. Obama challenging Senator Obama’s lack of “qualifications” to serve as President of the United States and his case, Berg vs. Obama, [is in the U.S. Supreme Court with two (2) Conferences scheduled on 1/09/09 & 1/16/09] announced today that the U.S. Supreme Court has “not” made a public decision yet regarding his case.

    Berg said, “I am making these remarks because of the ‘wrong’ statements circulating that the case of Berg vs. Obama in the U.S. Supreme Court has been dismissed. We checked with the U.S. Supreme Court on Friday afternoon, January 9th and “no” decision has been made. We will have to wait until at least Monday for the decision regarding what took place at the Conference on January 9th.

    Please wait with us. Hopefully, the U.S. Supreme Court will grant our Writ of Certiorari as there is nothing more important than “our” U.S. Constitution.”

    Berg continued, “We are committed to continuing litigation until the truth of Obama being “not qualified” for President comes out. The Obama candidacy is the biggest “HOAX” every put forth to the citizens of the United States in 230 years.

    In addition to the current case in the U.S. Supreme Court, we have or will have:

    1. A case filed two [2] months ago captioned Berg vs. Obama, said case “under seal” so I cannot comment further;

    2. The case of Hollister vs. Barry Soetoro a/k/a Barack Hussein Obama, filed last week in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia; said case being an Interpleader case with the Plaintiff a retired Colonel from the U.S. Air Force who is questioning whether to obey or disobey an order if Obama recalls him, based upon whether or not Obama is a “qualified” President; and

    3. If Obama is sworn in as President, we will file a Petition for Writ of “Quo Warranto,” a case that will challenge Obama as being ineligible to serve as President because he is “not qualified.”

    Nonie Darwish: “The non-Muslim World Must Have No Illusions.”


    Author Nonie Darwish on Gaza and on the “Terrifying Global Implications of Sharia Law.

    How can a Muslim leader or individual avoid the hundreds of Quran and Hadith commandments to Muslims to kill Jews and Christians? How can a Muslim leader face his devout Muslim subjects with a decision of friendship and peace with Jews when the mosques all over the Middle East recite Mohammed’s commandment to Muslims: “The Hour [Resurrection] will not take place until the Muslims fight the Jews, and kill them. And the Jews will hide behind the rock and tree, and the rock and tree will say: Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, this is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!” (Sahih Muslim 41:6985, also Sahih Bukhari 4:52:177).

    This Hadith, issued by Mohammad was issued in the 7th century, not after the 1948 creation of the State of Israel. It is not a response to modern-day grievances; it is a permanent commandment.

    This is the real basis of the Arab/Israeli conflict: not a conflict over land or occupation, but a divine Muslim obligation to destroy neighboring (non-Muslim) Israel, where Jews are no longer dhimmis but are free to rule themselves. We cannot ignore the root of the problem in Muslim scriptures. That is the true force behind the hate and propaganda Jihadist machine against Jews in the Muslim world.

    Some Muslims tell me that they don’t believe in Sharia and question why am I making a big deal about it. My answer is that Sharia is the law of the land in 54 Muslim countries and many Muslim groups are demanding Sharia in the West. In 1990, 45 Muslim countries signed the Cairo Human Rights Declaration which stated that Sharia has supremacy over the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

    The Muslim world must look within to its sacred laws, scriptures, sermons, teaching and preaching, and reform the obstacles for peace that have condemned them to a permanent state of jihad. The non-Muslim world must have no illusions.

    This website,, is owned by Thomas Goldstein, who has contributed $4,400 to Barack Obama. It has no ties to SCOTUS. The only listing that they have for Phil Berg is the October 31 filing. In other words, DO NOT list this biased site as resource for cases that SCOTUS will hear.
    If it were legit, then they would have had all of Berg’s pleadings.

    Thomas Goldstein also donated $2,300 to the Markey committee, which is strange because the Markey Committee is a Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming. How is it possible to “donate” money to a Congressional hearing?

    I had nothing to do with that, Polarik. It has been my contention for quite some time that we’re not going to find a piece of paper that says “born in Kenya.” If it existed, it’s long gone.
    However, I’m convinced documents exist, very conclusively, that point to Obama Jr’s UK/Kenyan citizenship as well as Commonwealth status. In other words, if not a BC, the very next best thing…

    I know that, and I suspect that BHO sent his goons out to scrub anything they could get their hands on. BHO’s trips to Hawaii were fact-finding missions — or should I say, fact-squashing missions.
    Is there anyway to track down the whereabouts of Stanley and BHO Sr. at the time of Jr.’s birth? Does the INS (now USCIS) keep records of passports and I-94’s issued that far back?

    Rose, along the lines of you above 7:46pm, I’ve trying to understand the dhimmi argument that it is only “radical Isalm” that is the problem, not “moderate Muslims”. The link below explains in more detail.

    “”So if the Muslim is actually your friend, then in that moment he is not Islamic. But there is another possibility. Mohammed repeatedly told Muslims to deceive kafirs when it would advance Islam. So the friendship may be deception.””

    Thanks for the link, sdee!

    I believe there are differences. I don’t paint Muslims in India with the same brush as Muslims in Gaza, for example.

    Let’s not forget, these people elected Hamas to lead them.

    But if anyone knows Gaza and Hamas, it’s Nonie Darwish (see comment above.)

    I initially became opposed to Obama after I learned of his embrace of Raila Odinga in Kenya.

    Raila Odinga signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Muslim leaders in Kenya which provided for the supremacy of sharia in Muslim-dominated regions of Kenya.

    Fortunately, Odinga lost.

    The spread of sharia is something all women everywhere should fear.

    Back in my college days, I remember seeing a Greek play where the women collectively decided no more sex until you stop fighting whatever war it was they were fighting.

    Maybe that’s something Gazan women should consider!

    “Mysterious document”

    Dick Durbin throws roadblock in Burris’ path to U.S. Senate

    Legislator shrugs off court’s ruling, says signature required by history,011009paperwork.article

    Mysterious document

    Wright, Burris’ attorney, later came forward with a document signed by White certifying that Blagojevich’s appointment had been filed by the secretary of state’s office.

    Wright told a news conference he already had sent the document to the Senate along with an attached Blagojevich letter saying he had appointed Burris.

    “The secretary of the state of Illinois has certified the appointment of Roland Burris,” Wright told reporters. “We have the signatures.”

    “There’s nothing they (the Senate) can do to reverse this,” he said.

    Actually, the paper with White’s signature on it appeared to be a certification that the secretary of state’s office had registered the arrival of the appointment.

    David Druker, a White spokesman, said that form, available to anyone for a $2 fee, was different from the official U.S. Senate forms White has refused to sign.

    Nathan Maddox, senior legal adviser to White, said White’s letter registering Blagojevich’s message “is not the official Senate appointment document.”

    On Capitol Hill, senior Democrats said they wanted to wait and see before offering any opinion on what the newfound document from White’s office meant.
