The People vs. Ted Kennedy

The People vs. Ted Kennedy

James Lewis
Well, it’s taken 45 years, but finally the American people have rendered a verdict on Senator Ted Kennedy — or as close as wel’ll ever get. Mr. Kennedy is responsible for our immigration mess more than any other  human being on the planet. But last night he was on ABC News complaining that the borders are porous!  That is unmitigated gall. Who has been the most powerful Senator on immigration for four decades? Who has left the door open, with malice aforethought, to change American democraphics? Who has surely blocked enforcement more than anyone else?

For Ted Kennedy to spin the defeat of the Senate immigration bill as a defeat for border enforcement shows the same lack of conscience that we saw displayed in the case of Mary Jo Kopechne, so many years ago.  It is high time for the people of Massachussetts to throw out Kerry and Kennedy, and start from scratch. They can’t possibly do any worse. With leaders like this, it is no wonder the Democrat Party has adopted American defeat in the war on terror as its overriding foreign policy goal.

Internet posting prior to car bomb attempt: “Today I say: Rejoice, by Allah, London shall be bombed.”

Internet posting prior to car bomb attempt: “Today I say: Rejoice, by Allah, London shall be bombed.”

“Was London Bomb Plot Heralded On Web?” by Tucker Reals for CBS News:

Hours before London explosives technicians dismantled a large car bomb in the heart of the British capital’s tourist-rich theater district, a message appeared on one of the most widely used jihadist Internet forums, saying: “Today I say: Rejoice, by Allah, London shall be bombed.”

CBS News found the posting, which went on for nearly 300 words, on the “al Hesbah” chat room. It was left by a person who goes by the name abu Osama al-Hazeen, who appears regularly on the forum. The comment was posted on the forum, according to time stamp, at 08:09 a.m. British time on June 28 — about 17 hours before the bomb was found early on June 29.

Al Hesbah is frequently used by international Sunni militant groups, including al Qaeda and the Taliban, to post propaganda videos and messages in their fight against the West.

There was no way for CBS News to independently confirm any connection between the posting made Thursday night and the car bomb found Friday.

Al-Hazeen’s message begins: “In the name of God, the most compassionate, the most merciful. Is Britain Longing for al Qaeda’s bombings?”

No.

Al-Hazeen decries the recent knighthood of controversial author Salman Rushdie as a blow felt by all British Muslims. “This ‘honoring’ came at a crucial time, a time when the whole nation is reeling from the crusaders attacks on all Muslim lands,” he said, in an apparent reference to the British role in Iraq.

“We say to Britain: The Emir of al Qaeda, Sheikh Osama, has once threatened you, and he carried out his threats. Today I say: Rejoice, by Allah, London shall be bombed,” the message reads.

Speaking at a news conference Friday after the bomb scare in central London, the Metropolitan Police force’s Counter-Terrorism Commander Peter Clarke said that officials had “no indication that we were going to be attacked this way”.

Prior to the Thursday night posting by al-Hazeen, there had been no specific allusions to threats against London or Britain seen on al Hesbah, or any other major jihadist forums in recent weeks.

Several responses to the posting by other forum members expressed hope that an attack against London would be realized in the near future.

In response, al-Hazeen urges patience, saying, “Victory is very close, but you are just rushing it.”

Imam Bush strikes again

Imam Bush strikes again

If anyone wants to know why Muslims the world over tell pollsters the United States is at war with Islam, just read President Bush’s speech at the Islamic Center of Washington, especially the part about American-style religious freedom — in the president’s words, “what we wish for the world.”

He began this way: “For those who seek a true understanding of our country, they need to look no farther than here.”

No — not the mosque itself, but down the street it occupies. “This Muslim center sits quietly down the road from a synagogue, a Lutheran church, a Catholic parish, a Greek Orthodox chapel, a Buddhist temple — each with faithful followers who practice their deeply held beliefs and live side by side in peace,” the president explained, standing in his Islamically observant stocking feet before a cool Muslim audience. “This is what freedom offers: societies where people can live and worship as they choose without intimidation, without suspicion, without a knock on the door from the secret police.”

As one who has attended a bar mitzvah at that synagogue down the road, I have news for the president: Freedom, American-style, has changed. To enter, I passed an armed guard holding an automatic weapon manning the door. Armed guards like him man many such doors in many such cities. In fact, so common is it for religious worship to require armed protection today that we miss the implications: the degree to which freedom to worship without fear in America has been curtailed by the open-ended threat of Buddhist violence.

Whoops, sorry. I mean, curtailed by the open-ended threat of Greek Orthodox violence. Or was that Catholic or Lutheran violence?

No, the peril to the synagogue was and remains Islamic violence. The resulting diminution of freedom is a symptom of advancing dhimmitude — the diminished cultural condition of non-Muslims living in relation to Islam.

So, freedom of worship ain’t what it used to be. But even in its terror-constrained state, the spread of American religious freedom actually threatens religiously unfree Islamic cultures, which, for example, consider “apostasy” — deciding not to be Muslim — a capital crime.

But that threat is only on paper. Where Americans actually become involved in the Islamic world, sharia (Islamic law) is protected, as shockingly attested by sharia’s primacy in the American-fostered constitutions of Iraq, Afghanistan and the Palestinian Authority. The president doesn’t seem to understand that. I don’t think he even understands sharia, under which the primacy of Islam is absolute, while other religions are “tolerated” at the high cost of dhimmitude.

Nearly six years after 9/11, nearly six years after first visiting the Islamic Center — and proclaiming “Islam is peace” — President Bush has learned nothing.

In fact, his peroration on freedom at the Islamic Center mainly underscored “America’s respect for the Muslim faith here at home.” Abroad, too. Even as he was asking Muslim leaders (again) “to denounce organizations that use the veneer of Islamic belief to support and fund violence,” the president announced that the United States would send an envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), a global Islamic support group. “Our special envoy,” the president said, “will listen to and learn from representatives from Muslim states and will share with them America’s views and values.”

What can the Free World learn from the Unfree World? Maybe something about the Cairo Declaration of Human Rights in Islam adopted by the foreign ministers of the OIC in 1990. In dire contrast to the United Nation’s 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Islamic document recognizes only human rights sanctioned by sharia — which, basically, leaves women and non-Muslims without much in terms of human rights.

Hmm. Might Bush — or anyone in our leadership, civilian or military — notice the unbridgeable cultural differences revealed by these disparate notions of human rights? Alas, probably not. Islam’s still peace, according to the president. Those pesky “extremists” fighting jihad are not, he said, “the true face of Islam.”

There Imam Bush goes again. “I am astonished by President Bush when he claims there is nothing in the Quran that justifies jihad violence in the name of Islam,” jailed Islamic scholar Abu Qatada said under similar circumstances almost six years ago. “Is he some kind of Islamic scholar? Has he ever actually read the Quran?”

No. He’s just leader of the Free World — a Free World that has become less free and more dhimmified on his severely myopic watch.

Democrats: Call Joe Lieberman NOW Obama: a word meaning, “He Who Speaks with Forked Tongue”

Democrats: Call Joe Lieberman NOW

Obama: a word meaning, “He Who Speaks with Forked Tongue”
by Bill Levinson

At least that is what we would conclude based on its typical context. The latest communication from Barack Obama underscores the need for Democrats to find a qualified Presidential candidate between now and next Spring’s primary elections. It is eminently clear that none of the self-serving frauds who are currently running are qualified for any position of public trust or responsibility in the United States. The National Jewish Democratic Council has, in fact, openly set standards that disqualify Clinton, Obama, and Edwards right out of the starting box. The Republicans can and should cite this standard if Clinton, Obama, or Edwards becomes next year’s nominee.

The latest communication we received from Barack Obama’s campaign manager, David Ploufe, underscores Obama’s total lack of character, ethics, and integrity. He is nothing more than a big phony smile on top of an empty suit. At present, his chief supporter seems to be a scantily-clad woman with what looks like a ring or stud in her tongue who has a crush on Barack Obama whom, as we remember, is currently married to Michelle Obama. We are not interested in hearing anything he has to say about the issues, because we don’t believe anything he says. Although we don’t agree with Senator Lieberman on all the issues either, we respect him and we will certainly listen to what he has to say before deciding how to vote next year–if he becomes the Democratic nominee.

This is what we just received from David Ploufe in response to complaints about Obama’s ongoing association with and endorsement of racist and anti-Semitic individuals and organizations. These include Al Sharpton and his National Action Network, Allan Houston (who with a Knicks teammate said Jews were responsible for Jesus’ death), Jeremiah Wright, and MoveOn.org.

The stakes couldn’t be higher. We have a President who stubbornly refuses to end a war that has cost us thousands of lives and billions of dollars. We have a vice president who believes he’s completely above the law. And yesterday, the Supreme Court essentially threw out the Brown v. Board of Education ruling.

For the next 48 hours, we have a chance to define ourselves and our movement as a force for serious change and a new kind of politics.

We have highlighted Obama’s “cut, run, and show the terrorists our backs” statement that shows his total lack of fitness to protect the United States from its enemies. We have also established that Barack Obama is a liar (we assume that he approves everything Mr. Ploufe says) like his supporters at the National “Jewish” “Democratic” Council.

To anyone who would still claim there are few differences between Democrats and Republicans, consider this: but for a few incorrectly counted votes in Florida or a handful of votes in Ohio, we wouldn’t have the Supreme Court of the United States acting to undermine Brown v. Board of education today.

It is easy enough to tell when a NJDC blogger has lied; his words appear on NJDC’s blog. According to NJDC, Al Gore really won the 2000 election, and Elvis Presley is alive and well in a UFO. As is usual with both the NJDC and Barack Obama, there is a considerable discrepency with what they tell us and what the truth actually is. The U.S. Supreme Court did not overturn or undermine Brown vs. Board of Education, which makes it illegal for bigots to keep Black children out of white schools. The U.S. Supreme Court did exactly the right thing but, as is usual with both the National “Jewish” “Democratic” Council and Barack Obama, black is white, day is night, and so on. Or, to quote the witches in Macbeth, “Fair is foul and foul is fair.”

Supreme Court Rejects School Race Plans

Chief Justice John Roberts asserted in his majority opinion that by classifying students by race, the school districts are perpetuating the unequal treatment the Brown decision outlawed. “The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race,” Roberts said.

…Justice Clarence Thomas, the court’s only black member, wrote a separate opinion endorsing the ruling and taking issue with the dissenters’ view of the Brown case.

“What was wrong in 1954 cannot be right today,” he said. “The plans before us base school assignment decisions on students’ race. Because ‘our Constitution is colorblind and neither knows nor tolerates classes among citizens,’ such race-based decisionmaking is unconstitutional.”

There seems to be an enormous difference with the truth (as shown above) and the image NJDC and Obama want to paint of racists standing at the schoolhouse door with attack dogs and fire hoses to keep Black children out. (Speaking of racists who stood in the schoohouse door, Obama signed a MoveOn.org fundraising letter for a genuine Ku Klux Klan Kleagle who once corresponded with the famous segregationist Theodore Bilbo.) For the record, we have never recognized the legitimacy of forced busing of students to achieve racial integration, and we support parents and communities that refuse to cooperate with such activities.

Now that we have established that both NJDC and Barack Obama have completely misrepresented the U.S. Supreme Court decision, we will cite the National Jewish Democratic Council’s standard under which Obama, Clinton, and Edwards are not qualified to hold public office.

Location of Presidential Announcement Suggests Romney Needs American and Jewish Histories 101

Location of Presidential Announcement Suggests Romney Needs American and Jewish Histories 101

Below is NJDC’s statement this morning on former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney.

It is tough enough for Romney’s campaign to explain away his ever-changing views on social issues — now, he trips up his own considerable efforts to court Jewish political support.

National Jewish Democratic Council Decries Mitt Romney’s Embrace of Henry Ford

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: David Goldenberg

February 12, 2007

Washington, DC – The National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC) expressed its deep concerns today about Republican Mitt Romney’s decision to announce his candidacy for President from the Henry Ford Museum in Detroit, Michigan. Located on grounds formally owned by Ford, the museum is a testament to the life of Henry Ford, a notorious anti-Semite and xenophobe whose belief that Jews were second-class, inferior citizens were expressed in detail in his writings on his theory of Americanization. Ford was also bestowed with the Grand Service Cross of the Supreme Order of the German Eagle by Adolph Hitler. [NJDC, as usual, omits little facts like the one that the award was for Ford’s industrial work, not for anti-Semitic activities.]

“NJDC is deeply troubled by Governor Romney’s choice of locations to announce his Presidential campaign. Romney has been traveling the country talking about inclusiveness and understanding of people from all walks of life. Yet he chooses to kick his presidential campaign on the former estate of a well-known and outspoken anti-Semite and xenophobe. Mitt Romney’s embrace of Henry Ford and association of Ford’s legacy with his presidential campaign raises serious questions about either the sincerity of Romney’s words or his understanding of basic American history,” said NJDC Executive Director Ira Forman.

…”Mitt Romney’s courtship of the Jewish community has primarily occurred within the realm of political fundraising. He will soon find out, however, that simple pro-Israel platitudes will only get him so far in the Jewish community. We hope that Mitt Romney will dedicate himself to learning American history – and especially the history of the American Jewish community,” Forman concluded.

Good. Ira Forman (the same individual who signed his name to a whitewash of MoveOn.org’s anti-Semitic hate speech, which was later found to include anti-Catholic hate speech and 9/11 denial as well) has just set a standard under the name, “National Jewish Democratic Council.” The standard says that appearing at the museum of a long-dead EX-antisemite who retracted and repudiated his offensive publications disqualifies a candidate for consideration. Under Ira Forman’s standards, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and John Edwards are unfit to hold public office in the United States.

Clinton, Obama, and Edwards endorse living and unrepentant racist and anti-Semite

Senator Hillary Clinton (NY): “I have enjoyed a long and positive relationship with Reverend Al Sharpton and National Action Network, and I don’t ever remember saying “no” to them and I intend to remain their partner in civil rights as I clean the dirt from under the carpet in the oval office when I am elected President”

Senator Barack Obama (Ill): “Reverend Sharpton is a voice for the voiceless, and a voice for the dispossessed. What National Action Network has done is so important to change America, and it must be changed from the bottom up.”

Senator John Edwards: “I will work with National Action Network to fight poverty and seek justice for those marginalized in our society.”


Barack Obama with Live Anti-Semite and Racist

“NJDC is deeply troubled by Governor Romney’s choice of locations to announce his Presidential campaign. Romney has been traveling the country talking about inclusiveness and understanding of people from all walks of life. Yet he chooses to kick his presidential campaign on the former estate of a well-known and outspoken anti-Semite and xenophobe. Mitt Romney’s embrace of Henry Ford and association of Ford’s legacy with his presidential campaign raises serious questions about either the sincerity of Romney’s words or his understanding of basic American history,” said NJDC Executive Director Ira Forman.

The fact that Barack Obama campaigned at the headquarters of an active hate organization that was involved in the burning of a Jewish-owned store in Harlem (Freddy’s Fashion Mart) and appeared arm in arm with a well-known and outspoken anti-Semite (and racist who, unlike Ford, never repudiated his actions) raises serious questions about either the sincerity of Obama’s words or his basic ethics, character, and integrity.

We add that she has been accused of using the phrase “Jew bastard,” which has also been used by Sharpton’s entourage. There is controversy over whether she really used this slur, but her appearance with another bigot whose followers use this kind of language and worse makes the story more and not less believable.

We repeated Ira Forman’s statement twice for a reason: to underscore the importance of the Republican Party repeating it over and over, in the context of the pictures shown above, should Clinton, Obama, or Edwards become the Democrats’ nominee. We cannot overemphasize how devastating it is to judge someone by their own side’s standards, and the National Jewish Democratic Council has set a standard that disqualifies all three front runners. This is why it is so important for Democrats to contact Joe Lieberman (”Jew Lieberman” as they called him at MoveOn.org while trying to replace him with an unqualified individual like Ned Lamont) and encourage him to step into the race. Lieberman’s character, ethics, and integrity are, in contrast to those of Barack Obama, highly respected. The same applies to his standing on national security issues. Lieberman could win next November, and he is probably the only Democrat who can.

=============================================
Footnote:
David Ploufe’s fundraising pitch says, “We’re less than 10,000 donations away, and your donation will count towards the goal. Please make a donation during these critical final 48 hours:”

Our questions for Mr. Ploufe:

(1) If people donate money and later discover that Barack Obama consorts openly with, and/or endorses, prominent racists and anti-Semites like Al Sharpton, and hate groups like the National Action Network, will your campaign return their money?

(2) Do you or do you not believe that the people whom you are asking to donate money have a right to know that Obama appeared with and endorsed Al Sharpton and his National Action Network?

Iran: It’s Time for a Progressive Revolution

By: Amil Imani

The thuggish revolution in Iran, better known as the Islamic Revolution of Iran, was anything but a progressive movement. This was a conscious assault on the 2500 year old Persian Empire and the progressive Iranian people in the twentieth century. This untimely revolution outrageously installed the most oppressive theocratic Islamic system known to the history of mankind. With that, it renewed an era of Islamic terrorism and the revival of its never-ending passion for world domination.

Hamas Mouse Beaten To Death By Israeli

Hamas Mouse Beaten To Death By Israeli

Israeli snaps after mouse calls him a terrorist

hamas mouse

(AP)Hamas TV on Friday broadcast what it said was the last episode of a weekly children’s show featuring “Farfour,” a Mickey Mouse look-alike who had made worldwide headlines for preaching Islamic domination and armed struggle to youngsters.

In the final skit, Farfour was beaten to death by an actor posing as an Israeli official trying to buy Farfour’s land. At one point, Farfour called the Israeli a “terrorist.”

“Farfour was martyred while defending his land,” said Sara, the teen presenter. He was killed “by the killers of children,” she added.

The weekly show, featuring a giant black-and-white rodent with a high- pitched voice, had attracted worldwide attention because the character urged Palestinian children to kill Israelis. It was broadcast on Hamas- affiliated Al Aqsa TV.

Station officials said Friday that Farfour was taken off the air to make room for new programs. Station manager Mohammed Bilal said he did not know what would be shown instead.
