I have four words about this:

With those words, Rudy Giuliani formally ended his presidential bid Wednesday afternoon, having flown clear across the country so he could share a lectern at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and throw his support behind John McCain.
The announcement was timed for maximum exposure: hundreds of reporters and photographers had gathered here to cover the suddenly-shrinking debate.
I predicted this last night. I guess I got lucky.
Tuesday, January 29, 2008
That could be a very smart move. It might set him up as a possible Vice-Presidential candidate if McCain gets the Republican nomination for President.
The Plot Thickens!!!!
Stay tuned for further developments. I will post more on this tomorrow evening.
Rudy Giuliani has not dropped out of the Presidential race as of 8:31pm CST this evening. If he does drop out, it could come later this evening or tomorrow.
He is speaking live in Orlando, Florida and praised his fellow Republican candidates for their campaigns, including Ron Paul.
He received 15% of the vote in the Florida primary.
I think he will still be a factor in this election, no matter whether he stays in the race or not. The question is, if he drops out is, "Who will he back and throw his support behind?"
NEWS FLASH 8:19pm CST
Rumors are circulating that former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani may be dropping out of the Presidental race as early as tonight or tomorrow.
This could be a good thing or a bad thing depending on how you look at it. I will keep listening and post updates as the become available.
Monday, January 28, 2008
I will be watching and will post my thoughts at a later time.
Take care and see you soon.

As Super Bowl 42 approaches, I look forward to the commercials. I watch the game, but do not get caught up in it like most of the people I know. Don't get my wrong, I LOVE sports. What red blooded American male doesn't. But the Super Bowl has turned into a week long party, with endless hours of broadcasts about anything related to everything football. After a while, it becomes too much.
But I watch the game to watch the commercials. They are some of the best of the year. Texas Truth has found a video with five shorts clips of possible Budweiser commercials that may be aired during the Super Bowl. You can view them below.
Watch and enjoy. Please leave your comments about what you think of them.

Kidnapping scams, such as people staging their own abductions, are common in Mexico and authorities say they now appear to be popping up in Houston.
Such kidnapping are so common in Mexico that there is a term for them, autosecuestro, which basically translates as "self-kidnapping."
These people, illegal or otherwise, don't want to become Americans. They don't want to obey our laws, learn English or salute and defend our flag like the immigrants did from Europe. All they want to do is "Bleed" the American taxpayer and the American economy and infrastructure and send OUR dollars back into Mexico.
In addition, they want to bring their low life culture to our country and prey on their own. People who do this to their own families are lower than scum (whatever that is).
This is what happens when you invite 10-20 million illegals into your country. The culture of their corrupt country follows them wherever they go.
It does not matter if any of the people who perpetrate these crimes are legally the the United States or not. The fact is the country has enough home grown human trash. We do not need to import more.

What will be the major issue in the Presidential election in 2008?
Here are the results:
Iraq War: 29 votes, 49%
Immigration: 29 votes, 49%
Global Warming: 1 vote, 2%
Education-No Child Left Behind: o votes, 0%
Drugs: 0 votes, 0%
Death Penalty: 0 votes, 0%
Corruption: 0 votes, 0%
I feel that both the Iraq war and immigration will be the major issues in the upcoming Presidential election.
Check back for the next Texas Truth Poll.

Rush Limbaugh stated this past Monday, "I can see possibly not supporting the Republican nominee this election, and I never thought that I would say that in my life. You don’t have a genuine down-the-list conservative” among the GOP candidates.
Michael Savage says he has not endorsed any candidate "at this time."
Mike Gallagher says, "I definitely dislike Huckabee. He is very much a fiscal liberal, wrong on illegal immigration, and he loves big government." But Gallagher, again, doesn't have one candidate he's backing.
I also have not decided whom to back. As I have repeatedly stated, none of them are the true Conservative like Ronald Reagan was. They all have liberal leanings. Some are merely RINOs and are no different that Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, or John Edwards.
One think I do know is that I WILL vote for the lesser of two evils. Even a RINO is better in the White House than any of those three Democrats that are running.

My question is WHY?
This guy is a singer...a performer...a celebrity. What does he know about global poverty and Africa?
I cannot ever understand why celebrities think they are experts in areas in which they have no education and training.
If he is so worried about global poverty, why is he not spend his own money to help the problem.
This is ridiculous.
Bono: You need to stick to singing . I guess I will have to add him to my "Dancing Monkey Syndrome" List.

Clemens claimed to have been injected with Lidocaine and vitamin B-12. Dr. George Blackburn, director of the Center for the Study of Nutrition Medicine at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center has some interesting answers for those questions.
You can read the article by clicking here.
I have talked to people in the medical field and most have said they could see no reason for him to take those injections.
They added there is a chance that they could be beneficial, but it would be in extreme cases.
I stick with my assumption that he DID take steroids and is now trying to cover it up.
The plot thickens. I will keep abreast of the coming testimonies before Congress and post more later.

They want us to believe that they can take our country back to the times of Reagan, where the United States was respected and feared in the same sentence. Back to the times when Reagan stood eye to eye with the Soviet Union; daring them to blink.
I remember the Reagan Presidency. He was like your wise old grandfather, taking about how we could be great again after the four-year debacle know as the Jimmy Carter Administration.
When terrorists blew up a discothèque, frequented by American troops in Berlin, Reagan stated when he found out who was behind it; he would take severe and decisive action against them.
Muammar Quaddafi of Libya was behind the attack. When that fact was found out, Reagan sent planes to bomb Libya. If memory serves me, he attacked one of the known locations of Quaddafi headquarters. Quaddafi was not there, but one of his young sons was. He died in the attack. After that, we heard nothing out of him. Quaddafi did absolutely nothing. Why? Because he knew, Reagan was serious.
When Reagan came up with the idea of building the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI), the Soviets shook in their boots. They complained that it would upset the balance of power and would give the USA a first strike weapon.
Reagan responded after the technology was developed, he would share it with them. Its existence would make conventions atomic and nuclear weapons obsolete.
The Soviets were afraid of Reagan. They knew he was serious and would not allow the United States to take a back seat to anyone when it came to being a super power and defending the world against the evils of Communism.
Many chastised Reagan at the time and some to this day hate his memory. They cannot find one good thing to say about him and his administration.
So why it is that the candidates of today want to align themselves with his image? I see it as an attempt to gain support for their Presidential bid. The question I have is “Do they really think people will believe that they can be the kind of President Reagan was?”
Growing up, I remember how my parents revered John F. Kennedy. They though he was the best thing to come around since sliced bread. I, too, was caught up in the Kennedy mystic. I event had a bust relief picture of his in my room.
As I got older, I studied, read and found out how the Kennedy Presidency was not very memorable. It was a group of people who were caught up in this handsome young man and his wife’s run for the White House. It sort of sounds like the Clintons and the Obamas.
I equate Kennedy’s run in 1960 with the Obama run today and the Clinton’s run in 1992, 1996 and today. All talk and no substance. They talk of change without telling anyone what that change is.
The Republicans need a candidate who truly is a pupil of Reagan. The Republicans need a person who emulates the best traits and insights of The Great Communicator. Not only do the Republicans need it, the United States of America need it.

I wish I could have been there to see it. I have always wanted to be present to see a building imploded in person.
There should be a web site to keep people posted on such things. You can view the video clip below courtesy of the Houston Chronicle.
Both campaign camps called N9NE Steakhouse at the Palms minutes apart Friday for a food delivery.
Chef Barry Dakake and Jenna Morton, wife of N9NE co-owner Michael Morton, delivered around $200 worth of food, including two Kobe burgers, two organic chicken sandwiches and one order of Dover sole, to Obama in a conference room at the Las Vegas Signature Terminal.
The Clintons' tab came to $1,530 and included entrees of nine steaks, three chicken, three salmon and three Maine scallops, two lobster pappardelle, salads, sashimi, rock shrimp, and various side dishes.
The Clintons, who spent the week in a Bellagio villa, also had a big order delivered from N9NE on Monday.
Do either of these people have ANY finicial responsibility? Obama pays $200 for 2 burgers, 2 chicken sandwiches, and a fish platter, while Hillary pays $1530 for her meal.
After doing some research, I found that N9NE advertises their average price of a meal is $25-$35. That would come out to serve Obama's group six to eight meals. He ordered five entrees. Not very excessive, but a bit above the average person's meal expenditure for a dinner for five people.
As far as Clinton, I count her ordering 20 meals, along with various side dishes.
With the meals averaging $25-$35 dollars, that comes to about $500-$700. But she spent $1530.
I guess it is different when you are spending other people's money. Money that people donated to help you campaign, not to eat "high on the hog."
That is one of the problems I have always had with Democrats. They are more than willing to spend excessive amounts of someone else's money, but never willingto part with their own, no matter how it was earned.
To quote George C. Scott as General George S. Patton in the movie "Patton": "Alright, now you sons-a-bitches. You know how I feel."

A state arrest warrant was issued on January 12, 2008, in Onslow County, North Carolina, after Laurean was charged with murder. That same day, Laurean was charged federally with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution by the United States District Court, Eastern District of North Carolina, Wilmington, North Carolina, and a federal warrant was issued for his arrest.
The FBI is offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading to the location and arrest of Cesar Armando Laurean.

So here goes. My first "greatest" post. It is, without a doubt, the greatest movie car chase of all time. If you know movies, you know what I an talking about.
Here is a clip. Enjoy it. I know I do every time I view it.
Don't you just love it. Nothing can compare with the sounds of those two cars.
Thank you Steve McQueen....for being cool enough to pull it off in "Bullitt"
A manhunt for Laurean began last week after authorities said he fled the state and left a note in which he admitted burying the body of Lance Corporal Maria Lauterbach, who had accused him of rape. Laurean said in the note that she committed suicide.
What a piece of trash. If he gets to Mexico and they won't extradite him because he might face the death penalty, I say hire some good old boys to go to Mexico and bring him back. But they better be careful. Remember what happened to Duane "Dog" Chapman.
Another thing they could do is offer some illegal immigrants a chance for full American citizenship. If they go home, bring him back in one piece, I would support their receiving citizenship, along with a big, fat reward.
In the immortal words of Captain Renault in "Casablanca" "Major Strasser has been shot. Round up the usual suspects."

"I don't know, Mr. Simpson, what the heck you were thinking, or maybe that's the problem — you weren't," Clark County District Judge Jackie Glass lectured as she doubled his bail to $250,000. "I don't know if it's just arrogance. I don't know if it's ignorance," she said. "But you've been locked up at the Clark County Detention Center since Friday because of arrogance or ignorance — or both."
Hell yes it was arrogance. OJ thinks he is invincible and can do whatever he wants.
I wish she would have left his sorry butt in jail until the trial.

Now it comes to past the proof that Couric is not a serious journalist.
From MyDamnChannel.com comes a gem: Katie Couric yukking it up with CBS News production staff off-the-air on primary election night in New Hampshire. You can view it below.
Some of the facts that come out:
1) Couric admitting she doesn't know much about Huckabee
2) Couric talking about how she thinks she creeped out Cindy McCain because she couldn't stop staring at her eyes.
3) She is heard to say "I'm always like oh shit, oh shit, oh shit, oh shit, oh shit"
4) "Give me one interesting exit poll, please!"
5) "Oh shit, I have seven seconds. [shrieks]"
You can't expect Couric to keep her persona perfect every simple moment she is off-air. However she should know that being a public figure, her appearance and demeanor are a reflection of her job, career, and employer.
It's the second time since her stay at CBS that such off-air video has made it to the Internet. The first time, she was mocking predecessor Dan Rather.
How can one trust her to deliver the news if she acts like that. But I expect no less from Couric. She is a middle age face who thinks she is so much more than she really is.
I have to admit, I do watch her broadcast occasionally. It is interesting to see her present the news. No wonder CBS trails all other major network news programs.
I will stick with Fox News, as I always have.

I guess the UFOs are back in Texas.
I have never seen one myself, but I know people who claim they have. I would LOVE to see a UFO.
I hope the military is on top of this. It might be some terrorists or illegal immigrants have found a new way to enter the USA.

I would be willing to bet he is headed to Mexico. If I were the authorities, I would be staking out all bus stops on said bus's route.
It is a matter of time until this homicidal rapist is caught. This is a guy that I bet the police hope would resist.
Onslow County (North Carolina) Sheriff Ed Brown,said earlier that evidence in the case "leads us to believe that he would be a dangerous and violent person if put in a corner."
I hope they quickly get this animal and give him what he deserves.
Saturday, January 12, 2008
They need to catch this animal FAST and punish him severely. I wonder how many other skeletons this guy has in his closet. I do not believe this was an "act of passion." His wife may also be involved.
What a piece of trash. He is hiding out like the chicken little puck he is. If he was such a man, why is he hiding?
For months after a pregnant 20-year-old Marine accused a colleague of rape, her family says, she continued to work alongside her attacker and endured harassment at Camp Lejeune.
As authorities recovered Maria Lauterbach's remains Saturday from a fire pit where they suspect Laurean burned and buried her body, her family asked why authorities didn't treat her case with greater urgency.
My question is why her superiors allowed her to remain in such a hostile environment? It seems to me the Marines should have removed her from to a more secure environment and possibly arrested Laurean a bit sooner.
A great number of people need to answer questions on the tragic death of this young woman.
But he suspects the man who later called him was a private eye who had tapped Simpson's phone because it's the only way he'd know about the message.

fucking asshole. I'm tired of this shit. Fed up with mother fuckers

He already got away with two murders and now things he can run roughshod over anyone he chooses. I do not know how innocent this conversation was, but it does sound to me like he was trying in intimidate Stewart.
Various news sources are reporting that OJ Simpson's bail as been revoked and he is being transported back to Las Vegas.
A judge revoked Simpson's bail and he is apparently headed back to a Las Vegas jail, according to news reports. Simpson was arrested in September on robbery charges. He is flying from Miami to Las Vegas with a bail bondsman. Simpson reportedly had to surrender his passport.
District Court Judge Jackie Glass stated that the district attorney believes Simpson is in violation of his bond, and he will be required to appear in court Wednesday morning.
He was flying today from Miami to Los Angeles and was expected to arrive in the early evening, according to Fox News.
He was reportedly taken in custody by Miguel Pereira, a bail bondsman of You Ring We Spring Bail Bonds
One has to love the name of the bonding company: "You Ring We Spring Bail Bonds."
While campaigning for support in Las Vegas, she was at a rally in a Mexican restaurant, a man stood up and hollered "My wife is illegal." She responded, "No woman is illegal."
My question is "If she is in the United States illegally, why is she not illegal?" I guess the meaning of the "illegal" must be explored, juts list the meaning of the word "is" was with her husband.
This untruth must be added to the long list of Hillary lies, fibs, and prevarications listed below.
- Her claim to be named after Edmund Hillary, the first man to climb to the summit of Mt. Everest. "So when I was born, she called me Hillary, and she (my mother) always told me it's because of Sir Edmund Hillary."
- Hillary is at a race-relations conference in Boston with some teenagers, and she claims that she was on the soccer team, and a player from the opposing team told her that she hated her kind, and Hillary said- 'you don't even know me,' to which the girl replied- 'I don't have to know you to know I hate you.' An attempt to try to make the kids believe she knew exactly where they were coming from, and from personal experience at that! Too bad this is almost surely a lie, since there were no girl's soccer teams at her high school in the 1960's when this supposed event took place.
- Hillary claimed that her daughter Chelsea was in danger on September 11, claiming that her daughter went for a jog down to the towers themselves, and when the planes hit, she saw the buildings right there and was nearly in peril. Too bad again, since Chelsea totally debunked her mother's phony story in a magazine article. She was really on the other side of the city, and was woken up with a phone call telling her to watch the news- and she never got anywhere near the towers, instead she was staring shocked at the TV screen most of the day.
I will post more on this subject as it becomes available.

The gangling New Zealander devoted much of his life to aiding the mountain people of Nepal and took his fame in stride, preferring to be called "Ed" and considering himself just an ordinary beekeeper.
"Sir Ed described himself as an average New Zealander with modest abilities. In reality, he was a colossus. He was an heroic figure who not only 'knocked off' Everest but lived a life of determination, humility, and generosity," Clark said in a statement.
As he and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay descended from the May 29 attempt on the mountain, Hillary told fellow climbers: "We knocked the bastard off."
He was one of the people I looked up to as a child and teenager. He was a man's man and accomplished one of the most remarkable feats ever achieved.
Rest in Peace, Sir Ed! You will not be forgotten.

The current election has been the most "vocal" event I can remember. I first voted in the 1972 Presidential Election. I stood in line for three hours to cast my vote. I recall it as if is yesterday. I voted for Richard Nixon. Yes, I admit it. I voted for Nixon. Even as a first time voter in 1971, I was already a conservative, even though I was not as conservative as I am now. I guess you could have called me a moderate.
This comes from a person who was raised in a Democratic home. My mother switched party affiliation when I was in high school to support the Republicans. My father, however, remained a Democrat until the day he died.
I never could understand why he was a Democrat. He was very conservative in his views, even going so far as not to allow my brother and me to have long hair. I guess it was his upbringing. His parents were Democrats; his grandparents were Democrats, so he was a Democrat.
Bill O'Reilly stated on his radio shows yesterday that he was a registered independent. I guess I could be called an independent, but I do not see any of the ideals of the Democrats that I support.
Would I vote for a Democrat if he/she were the best choice. My answer is yes, I would. I just do not see any views of the democrats that I support.
The Republicans however need to get on the ball and start to build a strong base for the election. I do not see any one of the candidates who has all the same views as I. Nonetheless, I still hope for one of them to jump out there and gain the support they need to defeat the Democrats. If this does not happen, I see Obama or Clinton moving into the White House and our country heading into one of the worse periods we have ever endured. God help us if that happens.
Tuesday, January 8, 2008
Well, on to the next state.
This is a surprise, but I think the "tearing up" clip of Hillary may have had a part in it.
Well, time will tell.
One can only hope it continues. Obama is giving her a good fight, but I think it will come down the the convention.
No matter who they (the Democrats) nominate, it will not be good for the country. The only chance we have is if a Republican gets elected.
I still have not decided whom to support. I will keep researching and looking for a candidate.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney won the Wyoming Republican presidential caucus on Saturday, taking seven of the state's 12 delegates with nearly all precincts reporting, according to a state party official.
Former Sen. Fred Thompson of Tennessee won two delegates and Rep. Duncan Hunter of California won one, said Amy Larimer, executive director of the Wyoming Republican Party.
Larimer said two delegates remained undecided while officials counted all the votes. A final tally was expected later in the day.
The victory gives Romney supporters something to tout as the focus of the U.S. presidential election shifts to Tuesday's New Hampshire primary. Romney suffered a setback earlier this week in the Iowa caucuses where former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee soundly beat him.

She said she hadn't intended to mislead the contest sponsor but got caught up in helping her daughter "realize her dream of seeing Hannah Montana."
My response: YEAH...RIGHT!!!
Cebellos read a statement on NBC's "Today" show Friday morning, stating, "Please accept my heartfelt apology and please do not punish my child for my mistake." Ceballos apologized specifically to the military and military families for falsely claiming the girl's father died in a roadside bombing in Iraq.
"I just wanted to help my daughter write a compelling story," she said. "There is no more compelling story than the struggle and sacrifices of our military and their families. I meant no disrespect. I just made a bad decision which I sincerely regret."
This sounds like famous line of Rhett Butler to Scarlett O'Hara in Gone With The Wind - "You're like the thief that isn't sorry he stole, but is very, very sorry that he got caught."
This woman is trying to cover her tracks and do spin control. It is obviously on the advise of her lawyer. She was attempting to steal something by using false statements to get it.
She is only sorry that she got caught. If she had not got caught, does anyone think she would have come to the realization she had done anything wrong? I THINK NOT!
Some comments on my previous posts on this topic state that we should not criticize the child as it was the mote hr that instigated the act.
I agree 100 percent. The child is not at fault. Children do what they are told and taught. I know the mother set this up and used her daughter as a tool in this fraud.
The daughter deserved a better mother than this. Some say this has been blown way out of proportion. I say it has not. What she did was reprehensible. She deserved to be charge with fraud and at the very least deserves some sort of penalty for her fraudulent actions.
Her appearance on television was not an apology. It was an explanation in an attempt to do spin control. She is not sorry. She is afraid she may get charged with a crime, possibly convicted, and at the very least, get the crap beat out of her.
I guess that smirk on her face is being wiped off by public indignation and scorn.

In a news conference Deanna Favre, wife of Brett Favre announced she will be the starting QB for the Packers this coming Sunday. She claimed she is qualified to be starting QB because she has spent the past 16 years married to Brett while he played QB for the Packers.
Here are the official results obtained from Politico.com:
1. Huckabee 34.29%
2. Romney 25.32%
3. Thompson 13.37%
4. McCain 13.13%
5. Paul 9.99%
6. Giuliani 3.46%
7. Hunter 0.44%
8. Cox 0.00%
1. Obama 37.54%
2. Edwards 29.71%
3. Clinton 29.43%
4. Richardson 2.12%
5. Biden 0.92% (withdrew from race on Janaury 4, 2008, right after the caucus)
6. Dodd 0.04% (withdrew from the race late on Janaury 4, 2008)
7. Kucinich 0.00%
8. Gravel 0.00%
The Democratic caucuses attracted an estimated 220,000 voters; the Republicans, nearly 115,000.I did correctly predict the Obama victory, but figured Romney would have a better showing. Giuliani campaigned very little in Iowa after his brief illness, so I was not surprised at his placing. Fred Thompson's finish was eye-opening, as I did not fell he would finish that high.
Hillary Clinton's showing is surprising. Garnering 29.43% of the voters means that 70.57% of Iowa democrats rejected her bid for the White House. Is this a preview of the future? Only time will tell.
Texas Truth is yet to pick a candidate to support. Time will also help with that decision.

This humble writer takes what CNN (Clinton News Network) publishes with a grain of salt. However, this article did grab my attention and I felt compelled to expound on it.
One source as stated if Hillary Clinton is elected to the White House, she may appoint Bill Clinton as a Supreme Court Justice. I have to believe that would fit right into the Clinton's goal of total control in the United States.
That is all we need. A disbarred lawyer in control of the law who married a woman who became President after failing the bar exam in her first attempt.
Just another reason to jump on the Sean Hannity's "The Stop Hillary Express."
Wednesday, January 2, 2008
Texas Truth has not decided whom to support, but I can tell you one thing, it will not be a democrat. With that said, I am going to predict the following outcome of the Iowa caucuses.

4. John McCain
5. Duncan Hunter
6. Fred Thompson
7. Ron Paul
8. John Cox
1. Barack Obama
2. Hillary Clinton
3. John Edwards
4. Dennis Kucinich
5. Bill Richardson
6. Joseph Biden
7. Chris Dodd
8. Mike Gravel

With bitter temperatures and a steady snowfall many of the players and fans alike will get a reminder of what it was like growing up and playing on frozen ponds and lakes alike.
While there is the novelty of playing outdoors both teams will be sure to remember that it is a regular-season match-up and with the Penguins standing at 20-16-2 (42 points.) and the Sabres at 19-16-2 (40 points.) and the Eastern Conference sporting nine teams with 40-45 points the outcome is still important.
I was flipping from channels from bowl game to bowl game and came across this on NBC. I just have to watch. This is a GREAT event. I LOVE IT!!!!
I am not into hockey, but I do attend an occasional Houston Aeros game when I am in Houston. This is just too good to pass up. Life is a journey, and since I cannot be there to witness this event firsthand, I will view it on television.
By the way....GO PENGUINS!!!!
