"ALL CAPS IN DEFENSE OF LIBERTY IS NO VICE."
Saturday, October 30, 2004
Kerry and his minions on the Left has tried and tried and tried to make people afraid by saying over and over and over that Bush will: restart the draft; cut and then privatize social security; ban all abortions; take away your right to free speech; wage an endless war; expand the nuclear arms race and proliferation; put Muslims in concentration camps; and establish a state religion. And oh yeah.,.. That terrorism thing: we’ll defeat them ONLY after we get the Germans and the French and the UN to send their vaunted troops in to replace ours; and the only terrorists we need to worry about are those controlled by OBL - we do not need to deal with the state that sponsor or harbor terrorists, or who might sell them WMD.
Bush tells us the only thing we need to fear is appeasing the Jihadoterrorists - terrorists who have murdered: +150,000 Algerians; 1,500,000 Sudanese, 1,000's of Nigerians; 1,000's of Israelis, 1,000's of Indians; 1,000's of Afghanis; 1,000's of Pakistanis; 1000's Russians; 1,000's of Filipinos; 1,000's of Iranians; and over 3,000 Americans on 9/11.
So... What’s the difference between these two candidate’s campaigns - aren’t they the same - aren’t they like all politicians: running on fear?
NO. The things Kerry wanyts you to fear are PHANTOMS. Fantasies of the Left. The Jihadoterrorists are very real.
Because Kerry would rather you fear Phantoms than real Jihadoterroris, Kerry is nothing more a two-bit demagogue unfit to become CinC.
But it’s worse: Because not only does Kerry say that we should vote for him because we should fear his Phantoms more than Jihadoterrorism, he claims that HIS strategy for fighting alQaeda is better than Bush’s. But his over-valuation of multi-lateralism (treating it as an end in itself, rather than as a preferred means to other ends) and his lifetime record of anti-defense spending and of advocating accommodation with tyrants (the USSR, Castro, the Sandinistas, Saddam) and of advocating unilateral disarmament (as when he advocated the Nuclear Freeze in the 1980's and opposed Reagan’s defense build-up, and when he said during the 3rd debate that he would unilaterally stop the RESEARCH we are currently doing to convert some of our nuclear missiles into bunker-busting missiles which would only detonates after penetrating hundreds of feet underground - ion order to be able to destroy hidden WMD labs and depots in North Korea or anywhere else).
This proves that Kerry could not be any more wrong for the Oval Office - especially in a time of war.
A REAL war - one that is NOT a euphemism, as Holbrooke (Kerry’s chief foreign policy advisor) recently said.

TODAY I VOTED FOR BUSH! Because I don't want to go back to square one in the GWOT - or back to Ground Zero
In this poltical season, many people become victims of distortions of fact about many things: deaths in Iraq, deficits, stolen munitions, the draft, economic malaise. Many people worry because Kerry keeps saying that the economy is a disaster, or - as the Manhattan elite put it: "If Bush wins, the world as we know it will end." Well here are the facts in perspective:
1 - Stolen Munitions:
Wow, 380 tons of munitions at one munitions dump 20 miles south of Baghdad are missing. Forget the fact that these munitions went missing before our troops captured that dump. What's 380 out of the 400,000 tons already recovered at 1 dump out of 10,000 dumps already identified. Paul Bremer says that Saddam purchased almost 1,000,000 tons of munitions, mostly from France, China and Germany. Now, John Kerry calls for Bush's scalp for the 380 tons. Numerically brain-dead.
Even if it was lost on our watch, IT IS'NT 1/10th of 1% of what we have ALREADY found and destroyed - over 400,000 tons. And RDX is NOT SEMTEX, and no more explosive than TNT.
2 - Deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan:
We have conducted and won two wars and lost less than 300 soldiers in the hot portion of those wars. Apparently the hand-wringers are in a catatonic fit about it. Forget that we lost 58,000 in Vietnam, 50,000 in Korea and 300,000 in WWII. It goes to show that if the NYT has the immaterial and insignificant to blow into a worldwide controversy, they will lie, deceive and omit the issue to their anti-American end. We have yet to lose even 1/2 as many volunteer military soldiers as we lost innocents on 9/11.
3 - The Deficits:
Conservatives are wild about Bush's failure to veto any spending bill in his first term. Discarding the issue that the legislature only asked him to sign what Bush had previously approved, the importance of this particular deficit is totally immaterial and insignificant. Americans GDP is running at $11.7 Trillion this year. A $415 Billion deficit is just about 4% thereof. Now with a war, stock-market bubble bursting, recession-fighting, accounting scandals, tax cuts, etc., please give me a break; (in WW2 we ran up a DEFICIT that was 50% - THAT'S FIFTY PERCENT of GDP.) Has this 4% deficit driven up interest rates. No. This deficit is immaterial and insignificant. And have you forgotten that the net worth of households and non-profit orgs is running at an annual increase of $3.2 Trillion.
Why a draft. There is no reason. Just a scare tactic by the Democrat scoundrels. Why have 400,000 boots on the ground. We won the Afghan war with less than 10,000. And in many cases major encounters were won with air power and small special ops troops. We are now in the era of digital wars. Our capabilities are so sophisticated that no one left Baghdad even though we were bombing day and night. Adults should look at the numbers and get real.
John Kerry says the economy is a mess. Gee, A third of every dollar spent in the world ends up in an American's bank account. What a mess. What a greedy ingrate this Lurch is. He has no executive experience. No concept of the job he is aspiring to. Elevating him to Commander in Chief is tantamount to putting a bus driver in charge of Harvard. His managerial skill is questionable, suspect and untested. Unemployment at 5.4%. Wow. Best percentage in 20 years. And the economy grew by more than 4% in the last quarter. Kerry's Hoover comparison is pure demagoguery.

PARIS, Oct. 28 (Xinhuanet) -- France will be always on the side of the Palestinian Authority leader Yasser Arafat, French Foreign Minister Michel Barnier declared Thursday. "France, as I told you (Arafat) in Ramallah on June 30, will be always on your side to back your effort in favor of a just and negotiated peace," Barnier said. "It is with concern and sympathy that I keep informed of the development of your health," said Barnier.

But Kerry? He was as cold as Soviet ice. There is not a real human being beneath Kerry's skin; he's a phony through and through - which is why he has so much trouble being consistent on anything & everything, on any policy: because he has no core beliefs -- other than to reflexively berate the US military, and favor BIG GOVERNMENT.
One can NEVER say the same thing about any spoech ever given by Kerry. Even when Kerry speaks about events SEARED SEARED SEARED into his memory. I wonder why? Heh...
Hunch on why the Old Media is touting Bogus national polls which show a slight Kerry lead: they're aiding and abetting a theft....
We all know HOW they could do this: they tweak the sample in order to skew the results.
HERE's MY REASONING: for the last week Bush has been gaining in several BLUE states - Hawaii, Michigan, New Jersey, Michigan, Minnesota, New Mexico - and Bush has substantial leads in Iowa and Wisconsin. ALL BLUE STATES.
The Old Media NEEDED these BOGUS polls in order to be able to claim that the race as "tightening" - when in fact Bush is consolidating his his lead.
The Old Media knows that their bogus polls won't CHANGE MINDS, so... what effect do they REALLY THINK THEY'LL HAVE!?
They can help make the THEFT of the election by the Democrats SEEM valid.
You see, the ONLY hope for the Democrats is to STEAL the election by voter fraud, and they intend to intimidate the courts to support their attempted fraud. If NO NATIONAL POLLS show Kerry in the lead, their case would be thought of INCREDULOUS by the public, and laughed out of the court. The bogus polls are a necessary part of the strategy. The Old Media and the Left - and the Democrat Party they now control - know they need a few bogus polls to help make the phony election results credible!
Oh... oh... oh, you say: "the Old Media would NEVER stoop to that!"
Sure. Yeah. Right. They LIED about al Qaqaa in NYTrogate, and blew ABU GRAIB all out of proportion, and they used FORGED MEMOS to try to rehash a decades old lie about Bush's National Guard service. All to smear the president.
Faking polls may be the LEAST of their crimes! But a crucial one if the Democrats hope to get away with STEALING THE ELECTION.
BOTTOM-LINE: GET OUT AND VOTE, AND WATCH THE POLLS CAREFULLY.

ASIDE: Old Europe is also under the hypnotic sway of post-modernism and moral/cultural relativism. One reason they are drawn to it is because they are - after the bloody 20th Century - very war weary, and because they blame nationalism and ethnocentrism for all the blood-spilling.
Cultural relativism allows them to go on being who & what they are culturally - (Frenchy French or Germanic Germans) - without making it necessary to belittle their neighbors. By asserting that "all cultures (and value systems) are equal" they believe they can avoid a repeat of WW1 or WW2. That's why they reflexively seek accommodation and appeasement. Chamberlain epitomized this: his revulsion towards WW1 made him appease Hitler, rather than confront Hitler. As we all know, that appeasement didn't work - in fact it made WW2 worse than it might have been because Hitler was confronted later than he might have been, and he was much stronger militarily in 1941 than he was in 1936.
The same is true now - in the GWOT, or WW4. The Bush Doctrine is the anti-Chamberlain doctrine; it rejects the "let's wait & see" and the "let's only counter-attack after we've been attacked" strategies. The Bush Doctrine does this because of two things:(1) the Jihadoterrorists cannot be deterred; (because to the Jihadoterrorists death is a promotion). And (2) in an age where portable WMD's can kill millions, retaliation is not sufficient.
Bush's belief that there are such things as GOOD and EVIL is precisely WHY the Left hates him; Bush's belief is EXACTLY the OPPOSITE of post-modernism; it's why they think he's a rube, or a religious fanatic. Bush believes that there are such things as goodness and truth; the Left does NOT; in fact, they think this is what makes them SOPHISTICATED. Well... the Emperor who had no clothes on thought he was sophisticated, too! IOW: It's just as Orwell said - some things are so dumb only an intellectual can believe them!

TWO KEY FACTS THE OLD MEDIA WON'T TELL THE PUBIC: (1) The 380 tons of plastique explosives not there when US military forces took control of the area. And (2) that US forces have disposed of (or taken control of) 400,000 tons of explosives since kicking out Saddam. The 380 tons - not even 1% of what was in Iraq, under Saddam's control - were probably destroyed by the USAF during the war.
Why were these facts ignored by the NY Times and their Left-wing buddies in the Old Media?
Because the Left-wingers who dominate Old Media have NO SHAME.
The coming "KERRY INTIFADA": My 10/17/04 prediction of DNC election riots confirmed by Elizabeth Edwards (via DRUDGE)
"In addition to false registrations, and a plan for lawyers to preemptively attack the GOP and all the pro-Bush results in these states, I predict they'll mobilize demonstrations which will rapidly devolve into riots - with the MSM's pre-positioned lights & cameras rolling to show the rioters in a flattering light - just as they do with the terrorists in Gaza and the West Bank."
Elizabeth Edwards has confirmed this to be a fact. IN FACT: THE WIDESPREAD VIOLENCE AGAINST LOCAL BC'04 HQ'S AND LOCAL GOP HQ'S ALL ACROSS THE USA MUST BE SEEN IN THIS LIGHT; IT PROVES THAT THE KERRY INTIFADA HAS ALREADY BEGUN!
UPDATE: NEED MORE PROOF? Here's a list (with links) of KERRY INTFADA attacks (from an LGF commenter): Bush/Cheney HQ in Flagstaff, Arizona vandalized http://www.azdailysu...

DRUDGE has the proof that the DNC leadership is aware of this - maybe even behind it: an audiotape (from C-SPAN) of her telling a Kerry supporter that there will be riots, but only if the Kerry Campaign LOSES! Either she knows it's the plan, or she believes that Kerry supporters are lawless thugs. Probably both!
Go to DRUDGE; listen to her - and then decide for yourselves.
To me this is just more proof that the DNC has devolved into a racket that should be charged under RICO laws.

I'd like to add, that the Jihadoterrorists who are going into Iraq are not terrorizing Pakistan or Afghanistan or Saudi Arabia or the West Bank, or Turkey, or Europe - or anywhere else they might have headed if we were not on the offensive in Iraq. Or do you think that - to paraphrase Bush's recent comments about Zarqawi - the Jihadoterrorists who enter Iraq to creat chaos and fear would be peacefully minding their own business and leading quiet lives if we were NOT in Iraq?! Every Jihadoterrorist we kill in Iraq is one less Jihadoterrorist who can takeover a school ANYWHERE, or bomb a bus ANYWHERE, or crash a jet into a building ANYWHERE. And although we - and our allies - continue to confront and kill terrorists all over the world (in The Philippines and in S.E. Asia, and Central Asia, and Russia, and the Caucasus, and in Africa, and South Asia) the main campaign is now in Iraq. If we want to defeat the Jihadoterrorists and win the GWOT then we must defeat them in Iraq.
This will require that the USA have a Commander in Chief who is resolute, who will not waiver or fold when things go badly - as they do in every war.
Bush will stay the course.
Kerry - based on his lifelong commitment to cutting Pentagon budgets, his reflexive embrace of appeasement, and his lifelong pacifism - as proved by his opposition to the Vietnam War, the Cold War, and our actions in Nicaragua, Grenada, Panama, and Kuwait - cannot be trusted to stay the course.
Bush will attain victory - at any cost.
Kerry will not. Kerry has said that he will weigh the costs of waging war - what they cost us in terms of multilateralism or alliances or in taxes, or in deficits. Kerry has just as much said that he values those things as much as victory. Kerry confuses "means" with "ends."
If alliances and balanced-budgets hinder our ability to win the GWOT, then we MUST win the GWOT with fewer alliances and with bigger deficits. This is as simple as putting first things first - as the brilliant management guru Steve Covey once said.
Which leads me to the subject of my next long post - "CHARACTER AND THE PRESIDENCY" - which will examine Bush and Kerry in view of Covey's insights into what makes people good effective leaders.
Guardian/Observer - the leading Left-wing British Newspaper -admits a Kerry victory is a victory for the Jihadoterrorists
"Why Tony would vote for Dubya"
"His advisers have been telling Mr Blair he will be best served by regime change in Washington. The Prime Minister isn't convinced"
written by columnist Andrew Rawnsley
"Bush has run for a second term as a 'War President'. Even if the reasons for his defeat were more complicated, his eviction from the White House would be widely taken as a vote of no confidence in the war by the country that led it. Even if this was not true, Islamic terrorism would claim it as a great victory."
The enemy will claim a Kerry victory as their own victory. Is there a better reason NOT to vote for Kerry??!?!?!?!
How would we know if Teresa Heinz-Kerry owned Halliburton, or not.
Or any other big company that does business with the federal government.
Or companies that out-source jobs?
We don't know, now; we'll only find out if they release her tax returns and holdings.
That's why the Kerry's must release their complete tax returns and her total current holdings - AT ONCE.
If Bush had been stone-walling the MSM on his medical records and tax recoirds and miltary records the way Kerry is, they'd be agitating for his impeachment.
"Kerry Stops in Texas Without Knowing It
Sunday October 24, 2004 3:46 AM / By NEDRA PICKLER / Associated Press
ANTHONY, Texas (AP) - Democrat John Kerry briefly relaxed on rival President Bush's home turf Saturday but apparently wasn't even aware of it. [...] When asked which side of the line they were on, Kerry looked at Richardson, who said with a nod that they were in New Mexico. But their waitress and the police keeping watch outside the restaurant said it is in Anthony, Texas, not Anthony, N.M."
Figgers: after all (as his frequent flip-flopping has shown) Kerry NEVER really knows where he stands!
