With Giuliani out, Texas Governor Rick Perry Endorses McCain

Texas Governor Rick Perry today endorsed U.S. Senator John McCain for the Republican presidential nomination, a day after the governor's first favorite candidate, Rudy Giuliani, dropped out of the race.

I have four words about this:

Giuliani Drops Out of Race; Throws Support to McCain

"Today I am officially announcing my withdrawal as a candidate for President of the United States.”

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.

More on this later.

PREDICTION: Giuliani Will Drop Out of Race on Wednesday

I think, after hearing Rudy Giuliani speak tonight, he will drop out of the race sometime tomorrow (Wednesday) and throw his support behind John McCain.

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.

Giuliani Still in the Race (For Now)


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?"

More on this later.

Giuliani To Drop Out Of Presidential Race?


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.

State of the Union Address 2008

President George W. Bush give what could be his final State of the Union address tonight. I say "could be" because, if he desires, could give another prior to leaving office on January 20, 2009.

I will be watching and will post my thoughts at a later time.

Take care and see you soon.

Super Bowl 42 Possible Budweiser Commercial Clips

I felt like posting something light today. I am so burnt out watching the news channels and the constant bickering among the talking heads. So I though I might go in a different direction with today's post.

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.

Mexican Kidnapping Scam Finds Its Way To Houston

The Houston Chronicle has posted a story about fake kidnapping that occurs quite frequently in Mexico has found its way to Houston.

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

Here are the results:

Iraq War: 29 votes, 49%

Global Warming: 1 vote, 2%
Education-No Child Left Behind: o votes, 0%
Drugs: 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.

Talk Radio Hosts Undecided as to Presidential Candidates has a story about the major conservative radio talk show hosts have not decided whom to support in the upcoming Presidential race. You can read it by clicking here.

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.

Bono meets Pentagon chief to discuss poverty

It has been reported by Reuters that U2 lead singer Bono visited the Pentagon today to discuss Africa and the fight against global poverty with U.S. Defence Secretary Robert Gates.

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.

Reasons Clemens Might Be Injected With B-12 and Lidocaine

The Boston Globe has a story raising questions about legitimate medical reasons for the treatments that Clemens claims?

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

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.

What The Country Needs Is Ronald Reagan

Some of the Republican candidates for President are trying to align themselves with the legacy of Ronald Reagan. They are attempting to portray their platforms as similar to Reagan’s during his eight wonderful years as President.

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.

Hotel Montagu Imploded In Houston

This morning, demolition experts imploded the historic Hotel Montagu in downtown Houston.

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.

Clinton, Obama Spend Others Money Like It Is Not Theirs!!!

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and her camp ate a little higher off the hog than her rival Barack Obama during their week of campaigning in Las Vegas.

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."

The GREATEST Movie Car Chase of All Time

I have lately been viewing old movie clips on YouTube. It is amazing what one can find if they just look. All the time people are making list of the "greatest" or"best" something. I LOVE old movies.

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"

Laurean Headed to Mexico?

Marine Corporal Cesar Armando Laurean, suspected of killing a pregnant comrade, told friends that he would flee to Mexico to avoid being convicted of raping her, and investigators said Wednesday that they are working with Mexican authorities to track him down.

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."

Judge Doubles O.J. Simpson's Bail

Hands cuffed at his waist and a defeated expression on his face, O.J. Simpson listened to a judge blister him Wednesday for "arrogance or ignorance or both" for breaking bail terms in a robbery case.

"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.

Katie Couric Shows Her True Self

When Katie Couric took the anchor chair on the CBS Evening News, I knew that she was not a serious journalist. The post I wrote on December 6, 2007 can be read here.

Now it comes to past the proof that Couric is not a serious journalist.

From 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.

UFO Reported over Stephenville, Texas

Several dozen people, including a pilot, county constable and business owners, in Stephenville, Texas have reported seeing a large silent object with bright lights flying low and fast. Some reported seeing fighter jets chasing it.

Yahoo News has an article about it. You can access it by clicking

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.

Murderer/Rapist Cesar Laurean May Be Headed for Texas

The Houston Chronicle is reporting that Marine Corporal Cesar Armando Laurean, who is the key suspect in the brutal slaying of Marine Lance Corporal Maria Lauterbach was spotted in Louisiana and could be headed into Texas.

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.

Arrest Warrant Issued in Maria Lauterback Murder

An arrest warrant has been issued for Marine Corporal Cesar Armando Laurean in the death of Lance Corporal Maria Lauterbach. Laurean is charged with first-degree murder. Authorities have positively identified the remains found in a shallow pit in Laurean’s back yard as Lauterbach’s.

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.

Even More Information on O.J. Simpson Bail Revocation

The New York Post has published an article giving more information on O.J. Simpson and his latest brush with the law. Below is the article by Jennifer Fermino dated January 12, 2008.

The bail bondsman who received an expletive laced voicemail from OJ Simpson thinks the mysterious stranger who threatened to tell authorities about the phone rant worked for Ron Goldman's family.

Miguel Pereira, the owner of You Ring We Spring, also said the Juice owes him more than $18,750 for handling his $125,000 bail back in September.

Pereira ended up passing along the Juice's incriminating voicemail to the Clark County DA's Office, who ordered the Heisman Trophy winner to jail.

"I don't want to be held liable for it," Pereira told The Post, adding he said he thought that the mysterious stranger who knew about the voicemail worked for the Goldman family, who for years have been engaged in a bitter lawsuit with Simpson.

"I believe he's working for the Goldman family. He was asking a lot of specific questions," Pereira said.

But Fred Goldman said yesterday he knows nothing about Simpson's latest problems. "I'd like to tell you that is accurate but I don't think it's true," he said. "I wish, but unfortunately, no."

Pereira said he didn't think much of Simpson's message when he first heard it in November.
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.

"I believe that somebody was listening to Mr. Simpson's conversations," said Pereira.

When Pereira told Simpson why he passed the message along, he said the gridiron great groused, "Everybody's out to get me."

Pereira on Friday escorted Simpson from his home in Miami to jail in Las Vegas.

"Mr. Simpson was relaxed on the flight," said Pereira. "We were talking throughout the flight. He was expressing his concerns."

One of those pressing concerns for Simpson was his eagerly anticipated weekend card game.

"He was upset that he was going to miss his poker game that was planned at his house," said Pereira.

The plot thickens. I will keep abreast of this story and post more as it develops.

Clemens Speaks Before Texas High School Baseball Coaches

Roger Clemens spoke today to members of the Texas High School Baseball Coaches Association today in Waco. It was reported in the Houston Chronicle.

I have seen Roger Clemens pitch in person. He was remarkable. However, I think he probably did use performance enhancing drugs. Too many things in his statement do not add up, and I think where there is smoke, there is fire.

He was free to speak to the coaches and they were free to listen. The article stated he was warmly accepted. I would expect no less from a group that had invited him.

However I would love to have been there to see and hear him speak. It might have given me more insight into how he acted.

No matter how this goes, I will keep up with this story.

More on OJ Simpson's Bail Revocation

More facts have emerged concerning the bail revocation of OJ Simpson. It appears he had contact with co-defendant Clarence "C.J." Stewart who, along with Simpson, is charged with armed robbery. He left a message with a bail bondsman to give to Stewart. The conversation is below:

Hey, Miguel, it's me. I just want, want C.J. to know that the whole thing
all the time he was telling me that shit, you know, I hope he was telling me
the truth. Don't be trying to change the mother fucking shit now, mother
fucking asshole. I'm tired of this shit. Fed up with mother fuckers
changing what they told me. All right."
Simpson has to be the biggest fool on the planet. Did he think this conversation would not come out? I guess he feels that he is above question and whatever he does is a misunderstanding or someone else's fault.

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.
I hope they throw his sorry butt in jail until the trial, and after that find him guilty. Then he can rot in jail like the criminal he is.

OJ Simpson's Bail Revoked


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."

The LYING of Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton told another lie yesterday. Well, it might not have been a lie, but it was defiantly an untruth.

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.

  1. 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."
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

Sir Edmund Hillary Dead at 88

Sir Edmund Hillary, the unassuming beekeeper who conquered Mount Everest to win renown as one of the 20th century's greatest adventurers, has died, New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark announced Friday. He was 88.

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.

Views from the Front of My Computer Screen

I sit in my chair, looking at the computer screen and wonder what to post today. I cannot find anything in the news that catches my eye. Yes, there was a primary yesterday. Hillary Clinton and John McCain won. The "powers that be" say they had upsets. I really do not know. The polls had Barach Obama and Mitt Romney winning, but when you think about it, how did "they' know?

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.

McCain Wins NH Republican Primary

John McCain has been decalred the winner in the New Hampshire Republican Primary. Here are the results with 66% of the votes in:


Well, on to the next state.

Clinton Wins NH Democratic Primary

Fox news, along with the AP, is predicting Hillary Clinton as the winner of the New Hampshire Democratic Primary. With 71% of the votes cast, Clinton has 39% and Barack Obama has 36%, followed by Edwards with 17%, Richardson with 5% and Kucinich with 1%.

This is a surprise, but I think the "tearing up" clip of Hillary may have had a part in it.

Well, time will tell.

Hillary Taking a Nose Dive?

It seems to me that Hillary Clinton's drive to the White House may be on the said of the road with a flat tire. After being beaten in Iowa by Barack Obama and looking at the possibility of losing in New Hampshire, she might not be the shoe-in she felt she was.

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.

Clemens Holds Press Conference; Plays Tape

Roger Clemens held a press conference in Houston concerning his alleged use of performance enhancing drugs today (Monday).

I was listening to it on the radio and saw a piece of it on television. Clemens who had his lawyer Rusty Hardin with him, seemed very upset and was hostile to the press.

In addition, I have listened to the taped conversation between him (Clemens) and his former trainer Brian McNamee that was made on Friday. McNamee never admitted he was lying and Clemens never admitted he didn't use the drugs. Clemens did say he didn't do it (whatever that means).

McNamee asked Clemens repeatedly "What do you want me to do?" Clemens continually said he wanted someone to come out and tell the truth.

At the end of the tape, Clemens said he would visit with some people and get back with McNamee as to what he could do.

During the press conference, he stated he could not give a rats ass about numbers and records and the Hall of Fame. I can understand his being upset, but I think he is protesting too much.

Finally, Clemens filed a defamation suit against McNamee after the taped phone call. I will keep up on this and post more thoughts later.

Romney, Thompson, Hunter Win Delegates in Wyoming Caucus

It has been reported by Reuters that Mitt Romney, Fred Thompson, and Duncan Hunter have won delegates in the Wyoming Republican presidental caucus. Below is a copy of the article from Reuters.

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.

Cheating Mother "Explains" Essay for Hannah Montana Tickets

Various news services have reported that Priscilla Ceballos has "apologized" for a "bad decision" in trying to win Hannah Montana concerts for her daughter.

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.

The Logic of Hillary Clinton

I found this joke in an e mail and could not help passing it on. It follows the same logic that Hillary Clinton is using to defend her experience to be the President of the United States.

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.

Because of this she understands how to pick up a corner blitz and knows the terminology of the Packers offense. A poll of Packers fans shows that 50% of those polled supported the move.

Does this sound unbelievable to you? Yet Hillary Clinton makes the same claims as to why she is qualified to be President and 50% of democrats polled agreed.

Results of the Iowa Caucuses

Texas Truth followed the results of the Iowa Caucuses last night. I know it was only one state and it was Iowa, but it was fun to watch how the various candidates reacted to the incoming results.

Here are the official results obtained from

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.

Bill Clinton as a Supreme Court Justice?

I was surfing the net this evening, looking for interesting news items and came across an article on The article was about Hillary Clinton and one possible outcome if she is elected as President.

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."

Buffalo Sabres and Pittsburg Penguins Ready to Drop Puck in Outdoor Winter Classic

More than 73,000 fans are expected to cram Ralph Wilson Stadium on Tuesday to witness history as the hometown Buffalo Sabres will face off against the Pittsburgh Penguins in the NHL Winter Classic. It will be the second regular-season outdoor game and first in the United States.

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!!!!
