Max Baucus on Obamacare’s hidden agenda – redistribution of wealth

Thursday, March 25, 2010
Posted by: Hugh Hewitt at 5:08 PM

Max Baucus is the Chair of the Senate Finance Committee, and the Democrat most responsible fo Obamacare’s final shape other than Nancy Pelosi.

In an unusual speech on the Senate floor moments ago, Max Baucus declares that the “healthcare bill” to be  “an income shift, it is a shift, a leveling to help lower income middle income Americans.”  Baucus continued, “[t]oo often, much of late, the last couple three years the mal-distribution of income in America is gone up way too much, the wealthy are getting way, way too wealthy, and the middle income class is left behind.  Wages have not kept up with increased income of the highest income in America.  This legislation will have the effect of addressing that mal-distribution of income in America.”

Max Baucus on Obamacare’s hidden agenda – redistribution of wealth

Baucus’ candor is appreciated, though the fact that he waited until the bill passed to announce the real agenda behind the massive tax hikes isn’t a profile in courage.  And the seniors on fixed income who are about to lose Medicare Advantage would laugh at Baucus’ pseudo-populism.

The Lamest Excuse

The Lamest Excuse
By David Horowitz | December 29, 2006

That American progressives should have aligned themselves with the terrorists in
Gaza comes as no surprise and is hardly interesting. American progressives have aligned themselves with totalitarian movements since 1917 and, indeed, since 1789. It is what they do and who they are. What is interesting are the pathetic excuses they make for 21st Century Nazis. In the December 28th Nation Chris Hedges has a defense of Jimmy Carter’s latest effort to the throw the Jews to the lions. 

In the course of feeding the anti-Jewish frenzy of the Islamic crusade, Hedges explains the fratricidal mayhem between genocidal factions among the Palestinians in
Gaza. For those not paying attention, a highlight of this was assassination of three Palestinian children aged 3 to 9 on their way to school to punish their father for belonging to the wrong terrorist group. Approximately 500 Palestinians have been killed by other Palestinians in the same fracas. 

Hedges’ explanation is drawn from the fertile brain of an Israeli leftist: “[The Palestinians in
Gaza] are behaving as expected at the end of the extended experiment called ‘what happens when you imprison 1.3 million human beings in an enclosed space like battery hens.’” This is pretty neat. For forty years – since Israel liberated Gaza from Egyptian rule – Arabs have complained about the “occupation” of their “homeland,” one of innumerable Arab lies since the reason for the presence of Israeli troops was 1) Gaza was a hostile corridor across which Israel was invaded three times; 2) the Arabs have been in state of declared war against Israel since 1948; and 3) there were 7,000 Jews living in Gaza who, unlike the Arabs living in Israel, would be slaughtered if there were not Israeli troops to protect them. Hedges and his friends relentlessly overlook the genocidal ambitions of the Palestinians in discussing these issues. In 2005, the Israelis left Gaza and evacuated the Jews – by the way its most productive and law-abiding citizens of
Gaza. So now that it is liberated,
Gaza is – a prison! And of course the entire Middle East will be a prison until Jew-haters like Hamas and The Nation progressives have their way and
Israel is wiped off the map.

But this is only the beginning of the explanation. It seems that for progressives like Hedges, Palestinians have the brains of chickens. When cooped up, they kill each other. Actually, not even chickens are this brainless. They have to be more than cooped up, they have to be packed like sardines.

Gaza is a lot bigger than the Warsaw Ghetto, where 500, 000 Jews – unlike the Gazans – were actually imprisoned. Yet no Jews, in those circumstances, went around assassinating three- to nine-year-olds. Anne Frank and her family were actually penned up like battery hens. It didn’t make them killers. 

There are more than a million Arabs living in Israel – roughly the number of Arabs living in
Gaza. By The Nation’s standards, you could say they were penned up like battery hens. Yet they don’t go around killing each other. The reason is that in
Israel – unlike any other Arab state – they are free. They are even in the Israeli government. And unlike the Arabs in
Gaza they are not followers of a government sponsored death cult which teaches them to kill for Allah and especially to kill Jews. This death cult is the problem in the
Middle East, the source of the conflict and the reason why Palestinian factions are killing each other. 

The death cult calls on its followers – the very religious fanatics that progressives have embraces – to kill and be killed for God. Of course, the genocidal mission begins with the Crusader-Zionist alliance, Americans and Jews. Here is a frenzied utterance of the late and unlamented head of Hamas, Abdel Azziz al-Rantissi (mercifully executed by the Israelis): “We realize that Bush is the enemy of God, the enemy of Islam and Muslims.
America declared war on God. Sharon declared war on God and God declared war on America, Bush and

But that is only the beginning. If you are in the army of God then even the enemies in your own camp are not. During the current mayhem in Gaza, followers of Mahmoud Abbas and Fatah fired on a Hamas rally in the
West Bank. This was the response, as reported by ABC on December 16: “What a war Mahmoud Abbas you are launching, first against God, and then against Hamas,” senior Hamas leader Khalil al-Hayya told a Gaza City rally of 100,000 Hamas supporters, who fired their guns in the air and chanted ‘God is Greatest.’”

 In other words the sickness that has consumed the Palestinians of Gaza and the
West Bank is self-generated, an emanation of the death cult they have been nurturing for decades. But if you’re a progressive, blame it on the Jews. After all this is what your genocidal friends would say themselves.

The enemy within … America

CAIR’s Congressman

CAIR’s Congressman
By Joel Mowbray | November 6, 2006

Barring a cataclysmic event, Minnesotans tomorrow will elect the first-ever Muslim to the U.S. Congress, and odds are the media serenade won’t be far behind. 

What remains to be seen, though, is how many journalists will be willing to strike a discordant note by questioning Keith Ellison on his Nation of Islam past or his open embrace of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a group founded by two self-identified supporters of Islamic terrorism.


Defenders of the Democratic frontrunner thus far have dodged most legitimate questions, instead choosing to smear critics as Islamophobic bigots.  The tactic has worked, enabling Ellison to win comfortably the September 12 Democratic primary—and soon the general election.


But no amount of obfuscation or misdirection changes some simple facts: Ellis had a much deeper involvement with the Nation of Islam than he’s acknowledged, and he has forged an extremely close alliance with CAIR.  The organization’s officials, in fact, have helped raise over $50,000 for Ellison.  These are obviously legitimate—and necessary—questions, but few in the mainstream media have the stomach to go against the tide.  And with Ellison becoming the first-ever Muslim Congressman, the media “tide” isn’t hard to predict.


For the most part, Ellison hasn’t had to defend himself because most in the local media apparently don’t believe the candidate’s past and present affiliations warrant scrutiny.  Or maybe they just don’t want to be labeled bigots for questioning a Muslim about connections to certain Muslims.


When Ellison was taking heat this summer—including from other Democrats—state Democrat-Farm-Labor Party Chairman Brian Melendez lashed out at critics:  “There are people in this world who hear Muslim and think terrorist.  They’re bigots who wouldn’t vote for Ellison anyway.”  Of course there are anti-Muslim bigots, but there’s no evidence suggesting that any of Ellison’s public critics are.


The state DFL chairman not only sullied Ellison’s critics, but also almost certainly preempted others who might otherwise have asked uncomfortable questions.


Dishonest “apology”

Mainstream Media and Democrats: Terrorists’ Best Friends

Mainstream Media and Democrats: Terrorists’ Best


Written by Sher Zieve
Saturday, November 04, 2006
     It’s difficult to believe that the American left could hunker down even further, under the saturated-with-innocent-blood covers, with terrorists who have unequivocally announced their intentions to destroy us.  But, it has. 

      Recently, Bill O’Reilly of ”The Factor” program, asked leftist celebs Rosie O’Donnell and David Letterman if they wanted the
United States of America to win the war against terrorists.  Neither would answer.  In fact, when O’Reilly commented to Letterman that it was an easy question requiring a simple yes or no answer, instead of answering Letterman said that he was “being thoughtful.” 


     Thoughtful?  Letterman has to “think” about whether or not he wants the
United States or the Islamic terrorists to win?  These Islamists regularly and with impunity blow up infrastructures in the United Kingdom, Indonesia, Spain, and myriad other countries (including the
Center and the Pentagon in the
United States) and behead people on videotape.  And this leftist representative of the New York and Hollywood Industrial Entertainment Complex has to think about whether or not he wants the
United States or the terrorists to win?  

          This attitude is both reprehensible and appalling.  It is also the attitude voiced by the many elitist leftist celebrities (including George Clooney, Alec Baldwin, Barbra Streisand, and others) who have become extremely wealthy due to the ideologies and opportunities within the
USA.  Thesee are opportunities that, should the terrorist entities take over or destroy the country, would be lost to all of us.  But, the socialist Democrat “principles” allow for only the haves and the have-nots–“the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.”  One only need look to
France’s form of government for proof.


     Prime examples of Democrat politicians working to destroy the
United States seem to crop up almost every day.  We have Senate minority leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) voting against any programs that would protect the country–including the Patriot Act and the NSA terrorist surveillance programs.  Both of these politicos falsely claimed that the NSA program is wiretapping American citizens, instead of the reality that it was monitoring terrorist and potential terrorist calling patterns. Instead, the Democrats and even some of our liberal Republican leaders are proposing and passing legislation that gives terrorists U.S. constitutional rights!  Shameful. 


     Then, we have Senator Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) who calls U.S. soldiers Nazis and worse and Senator Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) accusing U.S. troops of committing torture–not the terrorists. 


     Note:  Those now continual thumping sounds, growing ever louder, you hear are our founding fathers rolling over in their graves.


     Not to be outdone by his buddies Durbin and Kennedy, on Monday Senator John Kerry (D-Mass.) trashed U.S. troops–again.  Kerry began actively vilifying U.S. soldiers in the 1970s, when he lied before a Senate committee about their having committed “atrocities” in the manner of “Genghis Kahn.”  In 2005, vilifying U.S. troops in Iraq, Kerry told CBS’s Face-the-Nation Bob Schieffer:  “And there is no reason, Bob, that young American soldiers need to be going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children, you know, women, breaking historical and religious customs.”  On Monday, Kerry decided it was time for him to deliver another blow to the
U.S. military. 

     Speaking before a group of assembled students at California’s
College, Kerry denigrated
U.S. soldiers’ educational level with: 
“You know education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well.  If you don’t, you get stuck in

     Under pressure from some of his colleagues, predominantly due to the fact that the November elections are almost upon us, Kerry offered a “non-apology apology.”  He said that his comments reflected a “botched joke.”  A joke?  Hardly.  I’ve watched the video of Kerry’s performance.  He was not joking.  Kerry even released an obviously rewritten sample of what he was “supposed” to say.  It was typical Kerry format: bobbing and weaving but always deceiving.


     Kerry’s comments are strongly indicative of the real Democrat attitude toward our troops–our frontline, some would argue our only line, against the terrorists enacting their terror on our shores.  But Democrats, despite some who are feigning a more “conservative” stance in their attempts to win elections, don’t like the military–at all.


     Last, but certainly not least, we have the mainstream media–far left in both design and practice.  Since shortly after 9/11/2001, these media have been working solidly to help the Islamo-fascists and to hurt the
United States.  The New York Times has published classified information on our national security programs over and over again–from printing U.S. programs that tracked terrorist financial transactions to our NSA call-monitoring programs.  It even gave specifics as to how the programs worked and were implemented.  The Washington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, and others quickly followed suit in publishing the specific programs’ data.  The leftist mainstream media’s hatred for President Bush has trumped their ostensible reason.  Do these actions constitute working for the terrorists?  Of course, they do.  We also have the CNN embedded-with-Islamic-terrorists “journalist” Michael Ware who reported on and sent a videotape of the terrorists performing the snuffing of an American soldier back to the CNN Mother Ship–the terrorists’ U.S. network.   


     Little to no doubt remains that the majority of Democrats and their media work against the
United States and for the Islamo-fascists–whether by design or due to naiveté.  The reason behind their madness doesn’t really matter.  The mere fact that it exists should send chills down the spines of each thinking and rational American.  The data are inimitable and compelling.  Want the possibility of losing the country to the very real threat of an Islamic caliphate?  Then, vote Democrat.  If you’d like the
United States to continue as a country, vote Republican.  It really is that straightforward.


     Your vote counts.  

Campaign Border Patrol

Campaign Border Patrol
By Quin Hillyer
Published 11/1/2006 12:08:55 AM

On the one issue that up until just two months ago was seen as being of intense interest to conservative voters — border security — most Republican congressional incumbents, especially in the House, actually have delivered in a big way. Most Democrats would take back that delivery. Intelligent Republican candidates would be wise to remind voters of these facts. And a documentary out last month, produced by conservative stalwart David Bossie of Citizens United, shows in stark relief why the issue is so important.

First, as for the movie: “Border War: The Battle Over Illegal Immigration,” is a tour de force. It doesn’t proselytize. It doesn’t announce a political position. But it leaves no doubt how vexing, and at times how incredibly dangerous, is the issue of illegal immigration. Ranchers on the border have their property littered, their livestock attacked, and sometimes their safety threatened, by illegals crossing from Mexico. Police and other law-enforcement officials are attacked and in some cases killed. Drugs are run and teenage girls molested, and agitators yell that American land actually should belong to the Mexican people anyway. And, lest we forget, many of the illegals themselves, ones who themselves are peaceful but impoverished, are abused or abandoned en route by paid human-smugglers out to make a quick buck.

And conservative U.S. Rep. J.D. Hayworth of Arizona is given lengthy opportunity to explain, with passion and plain-spoken eloquence (if that is not an oxymoron), why he supports ” get-tough” policies against the illegals.

But the documentary (available through or at retailers such as Wal-Mart, Blockbuster, Netflix and Amazon) also gives ample time, without the moviemakers doing any editorializing, to Enrique Morones, a man dedicated to the mission of caring for the illegals and who becomes increasingly activist in pushing for open borders. Filmed over the course of seven months, the documentary comes across as being scrupulously fair. Yet it’s almost impossible to finish the movie thinking anything other than that the borders must be better patrolled and protected, and that the illegal access must be stopped — because American lands and American citizenship must not be violated.

All that said, reasonable people can certainly disagree about what to do with the illegals already in the country, and about the comparative advantages and disadvantages, economically and culturally, to having a steady supply of low-wage workers. (I myself favor the Pence/Hutchison/Krieble plan that combines very tough enforcement with a free-market-driven approach to guest workers who have specific jobs and meet specific standards. Once enforcement is ensured, humanitarian and other concerns should be addressed, and the Pence plan does it well.) But the vast majority of the conservative intelligentsia and the conservative base consistently have insisted that no matter what approach is taken with illegals already here and with guest workers, the first thing that must be done is to seal the border. Border enforcement is the sine qua non for any further discussion of other reforms.

As all political observers know, the Senate originally passed a bill full of ” reforms” for guest workers but notably weak on enforcement. President George W. Bush supported the Senate approach. Millions of immigrants demonstrated against tough measures against illegals. But the House stood firm for enforcement first. It wouldn’t budge. And members of both chambers of Congress eventually got the message that, at least in the short term, the House position was overwhelmingly popular with more Americans, and certainly with more Americans who felt intensely about the issue, than was the Senate bill.

Against the cries of many Democrats, both the House and the Senate finally passed, and President Bush signed, a bill authorizing a strong system of fences along 700 miles of the U.S.-Mexican border. It was one example of a conservative promise made to conservatives that conservatives kept, in a way apparently favored by much of Middle America. As passionately as people felt about the issue all year long, it is an issue for which the promise-keeping incumbents ought to be rewarded at the polls on Election Day.

The reality of elections, however, often is that a deed once accomplished is promptly forgotten — especially when the election itself occurs before the now-passed law can possibly be implemented, and thus occurs before the voters can see physical manifestation of the legislative success. Hence, the Republicans (and it was mostly Republicans who pushed for the border fence) who won the legislative victory seem to be seeing little reward for it in the snapshot public opinion polls. Suddenly, border security seems less of an issue.

It shouldn’t be. The fact is that even though the fence is authorized, it still must be funded through annual Appropriations. If liberals take over Congress, the fence may never be built. For activists against illegal immigration, therefore, there ought to be plenty of reason to go to the polls and vote for the incumbents who did the activists’ will and kept their promises. Obviously, part of those promises still remains to be kept — and the more liberal party will never keep it.

In the last week of the campaigns across the country, the incumbents who pushed for the fence ought to use the illegal-immigration issue for all it is worth. The fence does not preclude further, humane, intelligent immigration reforms. But it should make the border less of a war zone. And that’s something to brag about, and to campaign on.

Fear the Terrorists, Not President Bush — On the left, my former party of choice, feels that the biggest issues confronting America are corporate greed, “the culture of corruption” (as if this does not occur on both sides), Wal-Mart, “big business,” churchgoing Christians, global warming and an assault on the civil liberties of us and terrorists. To deny this would be scandalously untrue — The “Drive-by” big city media feels the need to rant about how we “torture” terrorists, keep “secret prisons,” check phone records of suspected terrorists, regress back to Katrina whining, yada, yada and yada. The ACLU, “peace organizations,” the legal world, academia and Hollywood, not surprisingly, fall for this flawed, inane logic too. History has always proved these acrimonious fools wrong, and will again this time… if we’re not killed first by our enemies because of their devious behaviors.

Fear the Terrorists, Not President Bush
October 31st, 2006

Next Tuesday is midterm election day. When you cast your vote – if you choose to partake in this most honorable American tradition – please remember what is at stake.

On the left, my former party of choice, feels that the biggest issues confronting America are corporate greed, “the culture of corruption” (as if this does not occur on both sides), Wal-Mart, “big business,” churchgoing Christians, global warming and an assault on the civil liberties of us and terrorists. To deny this would be scandalously untrue.

On the right, my current “fearmongering” party of choice feels the biggest issue (singular) is to eliminating and freeing the world of Islamo-fascist Nazis. There is no denying this, and the sooner we, as in all other world wars, are free to do this, the better. My party wants to save the non-Muslim world, America, Israel and especially “liberal values” like sexual and gender freedoms (not just libertinism, but the freedom of women) freedom of religion, speech and of the press.

Unfortunately, aside from Radical Muslims, we have many domestic factors working against us:

The “Drive-by” big city media feels the need to rant about how we “torture” terrorists, keep “secret prisons,” check phone records of suspected terrorists, regress back to Katrina whining, yada, yada and yada. The ACLU, “peace organizations,” the legal world, academia and Hollywood, not surprisingly, fall for this flawed, inane logic too. History has always proved these acrimonious fools wrong, and will again this time… if we’re not killed first by our enemies because of their devious behaviors.

President Bush, sadly as of late, has fallen prey to dangerous political correctness and multi-cultural balderdash as he tries to unite this country. He has attempted to make good on his promise to be the great uniter, and the man has undeniably been more liberal than conservative the past year.

There is no need to do this, Mr. President.

This country was divided long before President Bush took office, and he has done his best to unite it. But many who hypocritically seek “redistribution of wealth” spend their weekends picking up wheatgrass at Whole Foods on their way to Nantucket, do not want to be united with Americans who attend church on Sunday, wave the flag, and enjoy Nascar, Applebee’s and saving money at Wal-Mart. Too bad for them. These arrogant, misguided folks have chosen to regressively look back, to sacrifice their platform to go after Mr. Bush (who is not up for re-election, by the way).

Fatuous liberals like Paul Krugman — who saw nothing wrong with comparing the backlash against the Dixie Chicks to the rise of Nazism — or the countless jabberers who have over the years denounced William F. Buckley Jr., Barry Goldwater, Sean Hannity et al. as fascists are difficult to respect, much less take seriously. As Jonah Goldberg wrote in September,

“One gets the sense that today’s liberals — beyond their phobia of offending the coalition of the oppressed (in this case, the Muslims of CAIR) — are reluctant to let Bush use “Islamic fascism” because they don’t want to give up their monopoly on the F-word.”

George Bush needs to stop trying so hard to make “peace” with those who despise us within our nation and are more concerned with meaningless impeachment than saving our world. His efforts have never been appreciated, but someday, like Reagan and those before him, perhaps they will. 

Thankfully, by the grace of G-d, the patriotic men and women of the military will save this nation as they always have. They will not get thanks from the coastal elites, but this is expected.

It’s not just that the wrong party could take power, but this party’s leaders, some of those who would be in charge of essential committees like Ways and Means, the Judiciary, Commerce, etc, are variously on record as not supporting Israel (and being proud of it!), raising taxes, ending free trade, drilling in ANWR (animals are more important than people, usually) and naturally, impeaching Bush. That will surely take our attention away from the Islamic Nazis, North Koreans and by October of next year, as opposed to fraudulent filmmakers who dream of Bush being dead, we all could be in severe peril. I’d personally put it at 50/50.

I hope that most Americans will take a deep breath, realize Bush had noble, correct intentions for freeing tens of millions from a madman and then remember that unemployment is the lowest in five years; the Dow is over 12,000 points. Inflation is 2.1 percent, the deficit is being dramatically reduced, and gas prices are falling. Let’s just hope that if the GOP maintains control, we don’t waste time, effort and money on Democrat protests and recounts. Which state this time? Indiana? Missouri? Do I hear Maryland?

Vote accordingly, and consider whether you want to tell your grandchildren you defeated carbon dioxide emissions or Islamo Nazi Fascists who threatened the free world.

13 Reasons to Vote Republican on Nov. 7 — Copy the text and email it to your friends

by Mona Charen 13 Reasons to Vote Republican on Nov. 7October 27, 2006 08:54 PM EST
I can understand why Democrats are jazzed about November’s election. The polls combined with the fawning media (“Oh, please, Sen. Obama, let us kiss the hem of your garment!”) are giving them goose bumps such as they have not experienced since “An Inconvenient Truth” debuted in theaters.What I don’t understand is the seeming tepidness of so many Republicans. Yes, the war in Iraq is a long, hard slog. The world is not Topeka, Kansas (would that it were). A journalist pointed out to President Bush at his most recent press conference that the Iraq war has now been going on as long as World War II did for the United States. Well, yes, but we lost 407,316 men in World War II. On Iwo Jima alone, we lost 6,800. This is not to say that the deaths of our people in Iraq should be trivialized. But comparisons with World War II — in terms of sacrifice and terrible price paid — are ridiculous.Republicans have abundant reasons to reserve a spot at their polling places on Election Day:

1) The economy. More than 6.6 million new jobs have been created since August 2003. Our 4.1 annual growth rate is superior to all other major industrialized nations. The Dow has set record highs multiple times in the past several weeks. Productivity is up, and the deficit is down. Real, after-tax income has grown by 15 percent since 2001. Inflation has remained low. As Vice President Cheney summed it up at a recent meeting with journalists, “What more do you want?” The tax cuts proposed by President Bush and passed by a Republican Congress can take a bow.

2) The Patriot Act. Democrats and liberals mourn this law as a gross infringement upon civil liberties. Yet the much-discussed abuses simply haven’t materialized. The law has, on the other hand, permitted the CIA and FBI to cooperate and share information about terrorist threats — at least so long as The New York Times isn’t publishing the details of our counterterrorism efforts on the front page.

3) The Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty, to which liberals clung with passionate intensity, has been cancelled, permitting us to work on missile defense. In the age of Kim Jong Il and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, is anyone (except Nancy Pelosi) sorry?

4) Immigration. Republicans in Congress insisted upon and got the first serious immigration restriction in decades. On Oct. 26, the president signed a law that will build a 700-mile fence along our southern border and, what is more important, does not offer amnesty.

5) There has not been another terrorist attack on American soil since 9/11. Who would have predicted that on 9/12?

6) Libya has surrendered its nuclear program.

7) A.Q. Khan’s nuclear smuggling network has been rolled up.

8) John Roberts and Samuel Alito sit on the U.S. Supreme Court.

9) Those Democrats who do not want to close Guantanamo Bay altogether want to give all of its inmates the full panoply of rights Americans enjoy in criminal procedures.

10) Democrats believe in immediate withdrawal from Iraq. If they succeed in forcing us to leave under these circumstances, the United States will suffer a stinging defeat in the war on terror. The terrorists already believe that they drove the Russians from Afghanistan and Israel from Lebanon and Gaza. They are convinced they chased us out of Lebanon in 1983 and from Somalia in 1993. According to Osama bin Laden and those who share his views, we are militarily strong but psychologically and spiritually weak. Like it or not — and no one likes it — we cannot leave Iraq now without utterly and decisively validating this analysis. We might as well run a white flag up the flagpole at the Capitol.

11) Democrats would like to eliminate the terrorist surveillance program.

12) If Democrats achieve a majority in the House, Barney Frank will chair the Financial Services Committee, Henry Waxman will head the Government Reform Committee, and Alcee Hastings will chair the Intelligence Committee.

13) Democrats believe that the proper response to Kim Jong Il’s nuclear test is “face to face talks.” That’s what the Clinton administration did for years. It worked out well, didn’t it?

Pre-Election SGO — If you own any stock in the New York Times, you’d better dump it before the election because the Times — like the rest of the 527 Media — will be the biggest loser of the 2006 election regardless of the other results. At about this time in 2004, I predicted that if Bush won, the media (especially Dan Rather) would lose. Two years later, Mr. Bush is still in the White House and Mr. Rather’s chair is now occupied by the excavatrix of the Couric Crater. Katie’s cuddly claptrap is running behind reruns of “Millionaire” in the Los Angeles market, and the only people who are surprised are the other occupants of the 527 Media cocoon.

Katie’s cuddly claptrap is running behind reruns of “Millionaire” in the Los Angeles market, and the only people who are surprised are the other occupants of the 527 Media cocoon.

Yesterday, it became official: there’s no difference between the Kos Kidz and the NYT editorial board. In a Sunday editorial the Times endorsed Nutroots Ned Lamont over Joe Lieberman (and whatshisname, the Republican nonentity in the Connecticut Senate race). My theory that the media are leading the Dems rather than the other way around thus requires a corollary: liberals are so blinded by rage at President Bush that they’re willing to follow the media’s anti-Bush anti-war lead, even if it takes them over a cliff.

Bush Derangement Syndrome manifests itself differently among its sufferers. In the New York Times‘ case, it erupts consistently in its eagerness to toss its long-time pals over the side for any measure of deviation from the Nutroots fringe. Christopher Shays — Connecticut Republican and recipient of several previous NYT endorsements — suffered the Times‘ endorsement of his opponent last week for the same reason the paper is now tossing Ol’ Joe to the sharks: he didn’t oppose the Iraq war sufficiently or agree that the president should be impeached for it. The endorsement of Lamont closes the BDS loop. Inside the 527 Media loop, no candidate can be supported who ever had a thought that varied from the BDS chant voiced by Lamontocrats the night of his primary victory: “bring them home, bring them home…” The sad part is that the Republicans can’t seem to grasp that this presents an opportunity for them. Well, not all Republicans suffer from that inability. At least two don’t and they’re both named “Cheney.”

It’s comforting to know that someone in the White House still understands what we’re up against. When radio interviewer Scott Hennen talked to the Veep about treatment of terrorist prisoners one question was, “Would you agree a dunk in the water is a no-brainer if it can save lives?” Mr. Cheney replied, “Well, it’s a no-brainer for me,” which led to a Chernobyl-like meltdown among the 527 Media. At the White House briefing the next morning, Tony Snow withstood a hilarious onslaught of righteous indignation as calm and well stated as Clouseau’s accusation that a suspect killed “in a writ of fealous jage.” Some smiling smartass girl ranted on for at least three minutes insisting that Snow explain what “a dunk in the water” meant if it didn’t mean “water-boarding.” (By the way, “water-boarding” is a means of breaking down a prisoner’s resistance to interrogation that makes the suspect believe he’s drowning.) The rest of the media munchkins were too busy jumping to conclusions to even listen to the answers to their own questions. Which proves a point and poses an essential question.

The media, at least the surrogate Lamontocrats among them, insist that terrorist prisoners should be treated the same way the Supreme Court requires a beat cop to treat a purse-snatcher caught on Rodeo Drive. Mr. Cheney made a point that resonates with every sensible American. If you want people to interrogate terrorist prisoners effectively, you’re going to have to use techniques that aren’t permitted in civilian law enforcement. Cheney didn’t agree with the idea of waterboarding, but so what? Was Khalid Sheik Mohammed “water boarded”? Possibly. And if so, that’s just fine by me. Whatever was done to KSM, the record shows that it succeeded in extracting information that led to the capture of other high-ranking al Qaeda terrorists and leaders, certainly saving an untold number of lives. This is one of the choices on November 7: Do you want terrorist prisoners treated — lawfully — in rough and innovative ways that work? If so, don’t vote for any Democrats.

And while the Veep was out there dispensing common sense, his better half was taking on the media in the way the Republicans should have been doing all year. On CNN with Wolf Blitzer, Lynn Cheney asked a pertinent question and made a couple of telling points.

CNN has been on an anti-Bush rampage unseen in its political activism since Rathergate put the phony Texas Air National Guard documents on the air. Its “Broken Government” special and anti-Rumsfeld rants dominate its pre-election “coverage”. Which didn’t escape Mrs. Cheney. Here’s the money quote from October 27, CNN last Friday night:

MRS. CHENEY: Well, you know, right there, Wolf, “Broken Government.” Now, what kind of stance is that? Here we are. We’re a country where we have been mightily challenged over the past six years. We’ve been through 9/11. We’ve been through Katrina.

The president and the vice president inherited a recession. We’re a country where the economy is healthy. That’s not broken. This government has acted very well. We’ve had tax cuts that are responsible for our healthy economy. We’re a country that was attacked five years ago. We haven’t been attacked since. What this government has done is effective. That’s not broken government…

BLITZER: You worked …

L. CHENEY: I watched your program last night and I was troubled.

BLITZER: All right. Well, that was probably the purpose, to get people to think, to get people to discuss these issues because a lot of conservatives and …

L. CHENEY: Well, all right, Wolf. I’m here to talk about my book, but if you want to talk about distortion…

BLITZER: We’ll talk about your book.

L. CHENEY: Well, right, but what is CNN doing running terrorist tape of terrorists shooting Americans? I mean, I thought Duncan Hunter asked you a very good question and you didn’t answer it. Do you want us to win?

BLITZER: The answer, of course, is we want the United States to win. We are Americans. There’s no doubt about that. Do you think we want terrorists to win?

L. CHENEY: Then why are you running terrorist propaganda?

BLITZER: With all due respect — with all due respect, this is not terrorist propaganda.

Oh, c’mon, Wolf. You’re caught, and you know it. Media bias is a thing of the past. You, and the others like you in the 527 Media, are producing campaign commercials for the Democrats and trying to pass them off as news. Thus the ever-deepening Couric Crater, the falling stock price of the NYT (down almost 60% in the past few years) and so forth. (I know, I know. Internet competition is driving newspaper stocks down, but liberal activism accelerates their decline.)

A week from tomorrow Americans will decide between saddling George W. Bush with a hostile Democratic Congress or with a Republican-controlled Senate dominated by presidential wannabes. Sigh. Vote Republican anyhow, if only to annoy the media.

Citizen Apathy is America’s Greatest Enemy

Citizen Apathy is America’s Greatest Enemy
Terrorism Jeffrey Epstein
October 17, 2006
For those of us engaged in the struggle to inform America about Radical Islam’s menacing threat to our homeland, we’ve encountered numerous obstacles along the way. Most challenging has been the mainstream media’s imposition of virtually impenetrable roadblocks – obstacles implemented to prevent us from reaching out to fellow citizens who share our concerns for national security and the safety of future generations. Fortunately, we’ve discovered alternative means to circumvent those barriers.

In the process, we also learned how to deal effectively with detractors and maneuver in an environment best described as “PC gone wild.” But bar none, the greatest challenge currently facing us, and placing our nation in harm’s way, is citizens’ apathy.

Sustained periods of uncertainty, especially when a nation is at war, should give rise to greater concern amongst the populace. We are currently engaged in a struggle for our very existence yet, astoundingly, few seem to take note or even care. This is true in nearly every case except, of course, for our Islamist enemies who are poised to benefit from our indifference.

The struggle against Islamofascism is clearly being lost on the home front. Consider the following:

▪ There are over 1.1 billion Muslims worldwide. According to conservative estimates, at least 10% or 110 million are radicalized and sworn to our death and destruction.

▪ Islamic religious leaders granted Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda the right to kill up to 10 million Americans. Experts agree that plans are in the works for catastrophic attacks involving weapons of mass destruction. Yet, our ultra politically correct policies prohibit racial profiling and other effective measures that should be employed by law enforcement agencies to protect us.

“We are currently engaged in fighting a war for our very survival against a cunning, ruthless and implacable enemy – an enemy that is skilled in using against us the rights guaranteed by our own Constitution. What future awaits your children?”

▪ Over 90% of American Mosques are Saudi funded and tainted by Wahabbi doctrine. Hate-inspired anti-American messages and literature are shared with their hungry audiences on our own soil.

▪ American institutions of higher learning like Harvard, Georgetown and many others have received multi-million dollar gifts from Saudi Arabians – funds being used to purchase influence and capture the minds of our youth.

▪ On an annual basis, tens of thousands of prisoners are being converted to Islam in our penal institutions. Upon release, many of these same felons are recruited into a standing army awaiting marching orders.

▪ Terrorist training facilities continue to operate freely within our borders.

▪ Muslim Students Associations (MSA’s), Islamic centers and Mosques across America and Canada sponsor paintball outings and promote survival skills. Paintball, in itself, may be a harmless sport but one must consider ulterior motives since the MSA’s also benefit from Saudi funding. The National MSA’s online publication promotes firearms training with the following quote that they attribute to Mohammed, “Power is shooting, power is shooting, power is shooting”. They also recommend to Muslim students that paintball is an excellent way to learn about combat. Why would a college-based, religious organization advocate sharpening combat skills?

▪ Despite its dark history and terrorist ties, CAIR (the Council of America-Islamic Relations) continues to exert tremendous influence in Washington. Their propaganda machine is supported by multi-million dollar donations from Saudi Arabia.

▪ In the words of CAIR’s Chairman, Omar Ahmad, “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to be dominant. The Koran should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth”.

▪ CAIR continues to host regional conferences for thousands of Muslims nationwide. Keynote Speakers include the likes of Siraj Wahhaj. According to the U.S. Attorney’s office, Wahhaj is the un-indicted co-conspirator of the 1993 WorldTradeCenter bombing.

▪ Our enemies are forthright when voicing their intentions to establish a caliphate and deliver the entire world to Allah. We are the ones who refuse to accept the fact that they mean business, so we continue to live in a state of lethal denial.

▪ Over 6,300 Muslim-inspired terrorist attacks have taken place worldwide since 9/11, and jihadists have threatened even the Pope’s life. Why do our leaders in Washington continue to refer to Islam as a religion of peace?

The future of America is in grave peril. Silent are the voices of those patriots who stand proud while paying homage to our nation’s fallen servicemen on Memorial Day.

Absent are the statesmen of a by-gone era when men served their nation with dignity and upheld their oaths to preserve the constitution.
We are currently engaged in fighting a war for our very survival against a cunning, ruthless and implacable enemy – an enemy that is skilled in using against us the rights guaranteed by our own Constitution.

What future awaits your children? Who will be there to protect them from this evil, if we fail to confront it now in earnest? The time has come for all concerned Americans to either rise up and take a stand or acquiesce and sink further into a state of apathy. A lack of action, at this point, will only seal the fate of our heirs. We owe it to our founding fathers who fought against great dangers themselves to ensure that we could avoid having to make a choice between death, conversion or enslavement from foreign enemies. The time has come for those of us who value life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness to unite, in a common front, and be heard.

To quote Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch: “In this era of violent intimidation, it is crucial for the continued life of our free society that we speak out, and do so fearlessly.”

Show your concern for the future of our great nation. Don’t abandon those who are engaged in a daily struggle, both here and abroad, and help us fight to preserve our American way of life.

America’s Truth Forum needs your financial support to continue to fight on your behalf. This struggle has nothing to do with partisan politics, instead it has everything to do with survival. Above all, please make the effort to attend the symposium this November 10th & 11th in Las Vegas, Nevada, and spread the word to other concerned Americans.

These events are designed to do nothing more than provide a forum for the dissemination of the truth – facts provided by internationally recognized counterterrorism experts that could prove potentially life saving for you and your family. There will be no better opportunity to engage the experts in dialogue.
