The Bridge to Nowhere: Obama, Biden Voted to Fund It Twice

Democratic Vice Presidential candidate Biden has been taunting Governor Palin over her initial support for the bridge to nowhere. A couple of his more notable comments reported by CNN are listed below.

“I got also a bridge I got to sell you here, and guess what, it’s in Alaska, and it goes nowhere,” Biden mocked Palin on the campaign trail last week in Maumee, Ohio. And in Canton, Ohio, he tied it to McCain.

That’s pretty funny.

“If you look at it John McCain’s answers for the economy, and we’re in such desperate shape, is the ultimate bridge to nowhere. It’s nowhere,” Biden said. “It takes you nowhere.”

Ouch! That’s another good gotcha for Senator Biden.

Well, guess what? According to CNN, “Although Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden routinely mocks his Republican counterpart, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, for her onetime support of the infamous “Bridge to Nowhere,” Biden and his running mate voted to keep the project alive twice.”

That’s right, Obama and Biden voted twice to approve funding for the infamous bridge to nowhere.

And now, the only thing left unsaid to Biden and Obama is….GOTCHA!

RACE BAITER! Florida Democrat Alcee Hastings Attacks Palin

Washington, D.C. 9/23/2008

During a panel discussion hosted by the National Jewish Democratic Council, Florida Democratic Congressman Alcee Hastings, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, told the group, “If Sarah Palin isn’t enough of a reason for you to get over whatever your problem is with Barack Obama, then you damn well had better pay attention. Anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks. So, you just think this through.”

First of all, it’s important to understand what race baiting means. Many Americans frequently hear the words, but perhaps don’t truly understand the meaning of the expression. Here’s a brief definition.

Race baiting is an act of using racially derisive language, actions or other forms of communication, to anger, intimidate or incite a person or groups of people, or to make those persons behave in ways that are inimical to their personal or group interests. This can also be accomplished by implying that there is an underlying race based motive in the actions of others towards the group baited, where none in fact exists.

Now, you make the call. is the Democratic Congressman Hasting a race baiter, or not?

At a time when America need to unite, democrats continue, in both words and deeds, to divide the nation along political, racial, religious, and gender lines.


Troopergate: The Invesitigation of Governor Sarah Palin

Some facts about the “independent investigator” Mr. Stephen E. Branchflower indicate he may not be as independent as the Troopergate Committee claims. Nor are the democrats leading/participating on the committee. The main power players in Troopergate are Senators’ Kim Elton, Hollis French, Bettye Davis, and Johnny Ellis. And in the photograph below, it’s not difficult to figure out who they support in the 2008 presidential election.

Now, getting back to the so-called “independent investigator”, documents on the Anchorage Municipal website revealed Troopergate investigator Stephen E. Branchflower’s wife, retired Detective Linda J. Branchflower, served as an officer and later as a detective in the Anchorage Police Department (APD) from about 1985 until December 2001.  Linda Branchflower and Walter Monegan served together in the APD for almost the entire 16 years.

Walt Monegan joined the APD in 1974 and was promoted to APD Chief of Police in February 2001. He served as chief until his retirement around September 2006.

Anchorage Resolution No. AR 2001-364 indicated Detective Linda J. Branchflower was recognized for her almost 16 years of service in the APD by the Anchorage Assembly during the December 18th, 2001 regular session.

In his resume on aksenate.org, Mr. Branchflower indicated that he also enjoyed a close relationship with the APD, as a co-founder of the APD Homicide Response Team in 1985, and was commended for his work with the Homicide Response Team by the 16th Alaska Legislature in May 1989.

While the level of personal and professional relationships between Mr. and Mrs. Branchflower and Mr. Monegan has not been determined, the possible conflict of interest should be investigated before  Mr. Branchflower continues with the Troopergate investigation of Governor Sarah Palin.

On September 18, 2008, in an effort to verify the integrity of the independent investigation, a Freedom of Information Act request was initiated for “all documents pertaining to the Alaska State Legislature inquiry” into the Monegan matter, including all documents related to the hiring of Stephen Branchflower and the evaluation of any other candidates for the position; all communications between Mr. Branchflower, Mr. Monegan, Senators Kim Elton, Hollis French, and other members of the Legislative Council; all documents relating to communications between the parties and PSEA officials relating to the inquiry; all documents relating to communications between the parties and representatives of the Obama campaign; and all documents relating to communications between the parties and Andrew Halcro.

Vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s private Yahoo e-mail account was hacked, and some of its contents posted on the internet Wednesday.

The internet griefers known as Anonymous took credit for the intrusion, and screenshots of e-mail messages and photos belonging to the Alaska governor have been published by WikiLeaks. Threat Level has confirmed the authenticity of at least one of the e-mails.

“This is a shocking invasion of the Governor’s privacy and a violation of law,” Rick Davis, McCain-Palin campaign manager said in a statement. “The matter has been turned over to the appropriate authorities and we hope that anyone in possession of these e-mails will destroy them. We will have no further comment.”

FBI spokesman Brian Hale said, “The FBI is aware of the alleged hacking incident involving Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and is coordinating with the United States Secret Service on the matter.”
