 Graciously helping another financially struggling student get through school without breaking her parents’ bank account or causing Dad to miss any haircuts. From Mediaresearch.org:

National Public Radio reporter Nina Totenberg. . . is hiring the daughter of liberal Democrat presidential candidate John Edwards as a summer intern, and her NPR bosses “gave the green light, since the election is still 18 months away.”

Well that should certainly  be a relief to her parents who, like so many others,  have to choose between making the mortgage on their 28,000 square foot house, paying their restaurant tab or supporting their children.

Memo to John Edwards: Jesus Was Not a Leftist

Memo to John Edwards: Jesus Was Not a Leftist
By Dennis Prager
FrontPageMagazine.com | March 13, 2007

Democratic presidential candidate and former Sen. John Edwards told an interviewer from the religious website beliefnet.com that Jesus “would be disappointed” at how little Americans help the destitute who live among them. Jesus, Mr. Edwards said, “would be appalled” at our selfishness.

In the view of John Edwards and other Christians on the Left, Jesus would raise taxes, promote single-payer, i.e., socialized, medicine, be pro-choice and advocate same-sex marriage. But most of all, Jesus would be anti-war, opposed to the military and essentially be a pacifist.

This is based largely on one of His most famous statements: “Do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.”

The flaw in interpreting such statements as policy statements on how a nation should behave is that Jesus was speaking about the life of the individual — the micro — not about nations and the macro.

This confusion of micro and macro morality not only afflicts the Left, it also afflicts the Right. One example is when religious conservatives equate public and private cursing. While ideally one should refrain from using expletives in private as well as in public, there is no moral comparison between using such words in private conversations and using them in public. One trusts that if a religious conservative overheard a teacher using an expletive in a quiet conversation with one other person, he would not compare such speech to the teacher’s using that expletive while teaching a class. The first may be a personal sin, but the second is destructive of society.

Nevertheless it is the Left that is most oblivious to the distinction between the micro and the macro. Its understanding of Jesus is a good example. The Left would have us as a nation put this admonition of Jesus into practice: “If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.”

But Jesus was clearly referring to interpersonal relations. It is critically important when trying to understand any portion of the Bible or any other text to read a passage within the context of the surrounding material. As biblical commentaries often put it, “Context is king.”

Noting what precedes and what follows this verse shows that it deals with attitudes and behaviors of individuals in such matters as anger against another individual in one’s personal life, adultery, divorce, oath-taking, giving to the poor, prayer, fasting, prioritizing, worrying, etc. Jesus was talking about interpersonal relations and noted that in our relations with people in our lives, it is not generally a good idea to hit back.

Now imagine applying this to nations: Should we have said to the Japanese after they attacked Pearl Harbor, “Now that you have attacked us in the West, please also bomb our cities in the East”?

The idea that a country should offer its other cheek to an aggressor is simply immoral, not to mention suicidal. Such thinking renders Jesus and the Christian Bible foolish.

It also shows how hypocritical are the Left’s attacks on religious conservatives for taking the Bible literally. It is the Left that engages in a far more dangerous literalism when it applies Jesus’ words to national policy. Those on the religious Right who believe that God created the world in six 24-hour days are engaged in, I believe, a completely unnecessary literalism. But it is hardly dangerous. The Left’s biblical literalism, however, applying “turn the other cheek” to millions of its own citizens, is fatally dangerous.

Besides literalism, another point of hypocrisy: The Left attacks the religious Right for threatening to replace our democracy with a theocracy that will impose fundamentalist Christianity on the nation. Yet the people who loathe conservatives for using Scripture have no difficulty with those who cite Jesus’ words when arguing their positions — even when citing them incorrectly.

Jesus was no leftist. He was, among other things, a religious Jew who knew and believed his Hebrew Bible, which contains verses such as this one from Psalms: “Those of you who love God must hate evil.” That, not offering another city for terrorists to bomb, is likely what Jesus believed.

The John Edwards Problem

The John Edwards Problem

by Bill Levinson

John Edwards is growing proof that the Democratic Party has been hijacked by left-wing ideologues, many of whom are in the pay of the shadowy international financier George Soros. While Soros and his people have yet to make major inroads into state-level Democratic parties (those in the Pennsylvania Legislature seem to stand for traditional Democratic values), the national party is as out of control as the four hijacked airplanes were on that Tuesday morning in September 2001. Contrary to the claim by Soros’ minions at MoveOn.org that they “bought” the Democratic Party, the party belongs to middle-class working Americans, and it is past time to take it back.

In addition to proposing to knife our Armed Forces in the back, John Edwards has joined George Soros in denouncing Israel as a menace to peace. Edwards has also joined MoveOn.org in promoting the vilest imaginable forms of anti-Catholic hate speech, and the Democratic Party includes millions of Catholics who will doubtlessly vote Republican or stay home when they find out what Edwards’ people and MoveOn.org is saying about them. The same goes for Jewish voters who learn the truth about these people.

John Edwards Declares Jihad Against Israel reports,

In Variety, John Edwards placed his foot in his mouth while courting the Hollyweird crowd that has so far endeared themselves to Senator Barack Hussein Obama (bin Laden).

“There are other emerging fissures, as well. The aggressively photogenic John Edwards was cruising along, detailing his litany of liberal causes last week until, during question time, he invoked the “I” word — Israel. Perhaps the greatest short-term threat to world peace, Edwards remarked, was the possibility that Israel would bomb Iran’s nuclear facilities. As a chill descended on the gathering, the Edwards event was brought to a polite close.

Courting to the Anti-Zionist (PC for Anti-Semitic) Liberal Left, Edwards fails to place proper blame on the REAL TERRORISTS of the region, all of whom are followers of the Cartoon like Prophet Muhammad…ISLAM!

That’s right, Mr. Edwards, if all those Jooooooooooooz in Israel would just die, march into the sea, or dry up and blow away, there wouldn’t be any problems, right? It is Iran that, while hanging young women for “adultery” (which includes being a rape victim) and building nuclear bombs for the express purpose of dropping them not only on Israel but also the United States. It is Iran that is rated as a “Not Free” dictatorship by the independent group Freedom House. Nonetheless, is is Israel (a free democracy) that is, according to John Edwards and George Soros, the menace to regional and world peace.

The latest issue (February 26, 2007) of U.S. News & World Report shows how Edwards proposes to knife our Armed Forces in the back, bring disgrace and humiliation to the arms of the United States, and very likely get hundreds of Americans and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis killed in a replay of the evacuation of Saigon in the mid-1970s.

It’s time for Congress to use its power [over spending] to stop the escalation of this war and to keep this president from making another huge …ego driven mistake.” Edwards favors withdrawing 40,000 to 50,000 u.S. troops immediately to pressure the Iraqis to take charge of their own security…

Lest we forget other participants in President Bush’s so-called “ego driven mistake,”
# Hillary Rodham Clinton, Floor Speech of 10 October 2002 (from her own Senate Web site): “In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including Al Qaeda members, though there is apparently no evidence of his involvement in the terrible events of September 11, 2001.” http://clinton.senate.gov/speeches/iraq_101002.html
# John Kerry, 23 February 1998: “Saddam Hussein has already used these weapons and has made it clear that he has the intent to continue to try, by virtue of his duplicity and secrecy, to continue to do so. That is a threat to the stability of the Middle East. It is a threat with respect to the potential of terrorist activities on a global basis. It is a threat even to regions near but not exactly in the Middle East.”

Well, Mr. Edwards, what hole did you hide your suddenly new-found integrity in when you agreed to be John Kerry’s running mate? We can answer; you have no honor, character, ethics, or integrity, and you are unfit to hold any position of public trust in this country. That includes your current position as U.S. Senator.

John Edwards’ running mate in 2004: confessed war criminal and MoveOn.org-er who knifed his fellow Vietnam veterans for personal political gain

Now that we have covered Edwards’ attack on a fellow democracy, and his agenda of aiding the enemies of the United States in Iraq, we come to the vicious anti-Catholic hate speech sponsored by his bloggers Amanda Marcotte and Melissa McEwan. It seems that Edwards and his friends at MoveOn.org have revived the spirit of the vicious anti-Catholic cartoonist Thomas Nast, as shown by this official MoveOn.org cartoon of Pope Benedict waving a gavel in front of the U.S. Supreme Court.

Not to be left behind in promoting vicious hatred of American Catholics and contempt for Catholic religious beliefs, here is what Edwards’ classy and articulate bloggers Amanda Marcotte and Melissa McEwan had to say at Pandagon and Shakespeare’s Sister. (They recently left the Edwards campaign under pressure from enraged Catholics and other decent Americans, but this shows the kind of people with whom Edwards associates. There is no doubt that Edwards is willing to pander to Jew-haters, Catholic-haters, and bigots of every imaginable stripe for the purpose of garnering votes from the MoveOn.org wing of his party.)

Some reproductive rights links to consider while digesting Christmas leftovers by Edwards’ blogger Amanda Marcotte suggests that the Virgin Mary should have used contraceptives or had an abortion, which seems to be the meaning of “Plan B.”

Q: What if Mary had taken Plan B after the Lord filled her with his [explicit description of semen]?
A: You’d have to justify your misogyny with another ancient mythology.

…And, needless to say, the Catholic church is not about to let something like compassion for girls get in the way of using the state as an instrument to force women to bear more tithing Catholics.

The Catholic League adds that Edwards blogger Melissa McEwan smeared not only Catholics but all Christians as follows.

“On November 21, 2006, Melissa McEwan said on AlterNet that ‘some of Christianity’s most prominent leaders—including the Pope—regularly speak out against gay tolerance.’ On November 1, 2006, on her blogspot Shakespeare’s Sister, she referred to President Bush’s ‘wingnut Christofascist base’ when lashing out against religious conservatives.

This hate speech is neither accidental nor the work of rogue bloggers. It is entirely consistent with MoveOn.org’s anti-Catholic, anti-Semitic, and anti-Evangelical ideology, and it is doubtlessly consistent with John Edwards’ ideology as well.

The bottom line is that the Democratic Party has been hijacked by people who have nothing to do with core Democratic values. These include not only John Edwards, but also Barack Obama who has been bought and paid for by George Soros. Hillary Clinton, meanwhile, has taken support not only from Soros but also Michael Moore and Jane Fonda. It is past time for mainstream Democrats to take their party back from these ideological hijackers.

Good Guys and Bad Guys

Good Guys and Bad Guys

by Bill Levinson

Most Americans don’t need a program to tell the good guys from the bad guys in the Middle East, but there are some–like John Edwards and George Soros–who obviously do. The alternate explanation is that they know who the good guys are, but their loyalties have been bought by hostile foreign powers or domestic enemies (e.g. Soros) so they pretend that the good guys are the villains, and vice versa. Either way, Freedom House provides an excellent program for those who feel the need for one.

This column will also underscore the fact that, contrary to the assertions of anti-Semites, individuals whose loyalties have been bought with Islamofascist oil money, and the Soros-Occupied Government (SOG), Americans support Israel primarily because Israel is the good guy (democracy) and its enemies are the bad guys (dictatorships, theocracies, and terrorists) that have been the United States’ enemies since its foundation. This would be true if Israelis were Christians, Buddhists, or Hindus.

Let’s begin with the assertion by George Soros (whose generous campaign contributions have bought Barack Obama, whom Soros seeks to appoint as our country’s next President) that the United States is a menace to world peace that requires “de-Nazification.” Freedom House’s independent report simply reinforces what most of us already know: George Soros is a two-bit liar with no character, ethics, or integrity whatsoever, who allegedly collaborated with genuine Nazis during the Second World War. Ratings are on a 1 to 7 scale, with 1 being best and 7 worst.

United States of America (2006)
Political Rights: 1
Civil Liberties: 1
Status: Free

GNI/Capita: $37,870

Now let’s consider John Edwards, whose campaign was until recently promoting anti-Catholic hate of the worst kind. Edwards said that Israel is currently the greatest threat to world peace, while George Soros said that Israel’s policies are actually responsible for anti-Semitism. Again, let us go to the program that shows who are the good guys and who are the bad guys.

Israel (2006)
Political Rights: 1
Civil Liberties: 2*
Status: Free
GNI/Capita: $16,240

Life Expectancy: 80

Palestinian Authority-Administered Territories [Israel] (2006)
Political Rights: 5
Civil Liberties: 5*
Status: Not Free

GNI/Capita: na
Life Expectancy: na

Note that Gross National Income/ Capita is either not available or “not applicable,” as “Palestine” is essentially on international welfare and relief. The Palestinian-administered territories produce nothing whatsoever (other than mindless violence and religious intolerance), which is pretty typical of Israel’s enemies. Life expectency is, to paraphrase Thomas Hobbes, “brutish, nasty, and short” given the likelihood of being lynched by terrorists or blown up by sectarian violence.

Next we have John Edwards’ Iranian friends, whom he is afraid might be bombed by Israel to prevent them from blowing up Tel Aviv (or New York City) with a nuclear weapon, as Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has repeatedly threatened to do.

Iran (2006)
Political Rights: 6
Civil Liberties: 6
Status: Not Free

Population: 69,500,000
GNI/Capita: $2,010 [vs. $16, 240 for Israel]

Note that one Israeli is worth eight Iranians in terms of productivity, even though Iran has huge deposits of oil while Israel has almost none. This is doubtlessly because people who use cranes to erect buildings are far more productive than those who use cranes to hang women for “adultery,” which includes (under Iranian law) being raped.


According to John Edwards and George Soros, Israel is a menace to world peace. The individuals who are operating these cranes while building nuclear bombs are not a menace to world peace.

Now let us continue to Libya, which sentenced several Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian doctor to death as scapegoats for an AIDS epidemic. Our position is that Bulgaria has the right to invade Libya and liberate the medical personnel, no matter how many Libyans it has to kill in the process. In fact, any civilized nation has the right to invade Libya for this purpose, noting that Libya does not have a government or judicial system that any civilized nation is obliged to respect. This can be determined quite easily by looking at the “program:”

Bulgaria (2006)
Political Rights: 1
Civil Liberties: 2
Status: Free

Libya (2006)
Political Rights: 7
Civil Liberties: 7
Status: Not Free

There is only one side to this controversy, and that is Bulgaria’s side. Its citizens are being held hostage (along with a decent Palestinian) by barbarian savages worthy of nothing more than extermination like plague-carrying rats. The plague-carrying rats are, in fact, on a higher moral level than Moammar Khadafy and his supporters, since the rats never chose to carry the plague. In our book, Khadafy has no rights whatsoever, and the government of any civilized nation should feel free to take him out (as Ronald Reagan almost did) whenever it pleases. The same goes for Robert Mugabe:

Zimbabwe (2006)
Political Rights: 7
Civil Liberties: 6
Status: Not Free
GNI/Capita: $490 [was far higher under civilized Euro-American rule]
Life Expectancy: 41 [was far higher under civilized Euro-American rule]

A good American need not be an ethnic Bulgarian to support Bulgaria against Libya, any more than he or she needs to be Jewish to support Israel. To good Americans, free countries are the good guys while dictatorships and theocracies are the bad guys. The latter have been our country’s enemies ever since we fought our War of Independence to get away from a king. On the other hand, to AINOs (Americans In Name Only) who have sold their loyalties to domestic enemies or hostile foreign interests, democracies like Israel and the United States itself are bad guys, while “Not Free” dictatorships are revolutionary heroes worthy of emulation.

John Edwards Declares Jihad Against Israel

John Edwards Declares Jihad Against Israel

By The Rogue Jew

Liberal Democratic Presidential Candidate and failed John Kerry lackey John Edwards appears to be the latest “Blame The Joos” schmuck to appear on the scene.

This latest of John Edwards’ biased campaign, first against Catholics and now ”The Joos” makes me wonder if he were to get the Demoncratic nomination in 2008, would fellow “Blame the Jews” and Cop Beater Cindy McKinney come out of hiding to be his running mate?

In Variety, John Edwards placed his foot in his mouth while courting the Hollyweird crowd that has so far endeared themselves to Senator Barack Hussein Obama (bin Laden).

There are other emerging fissures, as well. The aggressively photogenic John Edwards was cruising along, detailing his litany of liberal causes last week until, during question time, he invoked the “I” word — Israel. Perhaps the greatest short-term threat to world peace, Edwards remarked, was the possibility that Israel would bomb Iran’s nuclear facilities. As a chill descended on the gathering, the Edwards event was brought to a polite close.


Courting to the Anti-Zionist (PC for Anti-Semitic) Liberal Left, Edwards fails to place proper blame on the REAL TERRORISTS of the region, all of whom are followers of the Cartoon like Prophet Muhammad…ISLAM!

Why doesn’t John Edwards mention the Midget Mullah Wannabe, Iranian President/Circus Midget Mahmoud Ahamadinejad and his quest for nuclear weapons in which to “Wipe Israel off the map”? What about Al Qaeda? Osama bin Laden? I’m quite sure that Global Warming is a bigger threat to the world then global Islamic Terrorism.

Unbelievable. Israel is the greatest threat for possibly being willing to defend itself, rather than the nation that is threatening the Jewish state with annihilation.

With logic like that, Edwards would make a better Secretary-General of the United Nations then President of the United States of America.

One should wonder if a southerner such as Edwards who is from North Carolina could be reviving the KKK as the enforcement arm of the Democratic Party in America. I would hope that because of this, the Liberal Jews of America would get the hint that the Demoncrats only care about the money blindly donated by Jews.

The truly scary thing about Edwards comes to light now…Could John Kerry have really been the brains of those two shcmucks?
