Liberal leaders - who's the real enemy?

A brilliant scholar, author and academic, Paul Kengor has just released
his new book, "The Crusader: Ronald Reagan and the fall of Communism".

In it he describes the attempts by Ted Kennedy, John Tunney and other American Legislators to defeat Ronald Reagan by enlisting the help ofthe Soviet Union. This was at the height of the Cold War in 1983! Did it never occur to them that they were colluding with the enemy?! The facts are clear and substantiated by KGB memos and other Soviet diplomaticcommunications between Moscow and their ambassador to the US.

I wonder how much press the story will get in the mainstream media. Of course they have still not let go of Foley and need of Republican leadership to pay the price for one mans misdeeds. Let's see how aggressive they get in pursuing Ted Kennedy et al, and demanding their leaderships' resignation. It would not be possible for the mainstream media to be aggressive enough. Leaving aside Kennedy's history of letting a young woman die in 5 feet of water, it's now clear he's also guilty of treason. Literally! What will it take for Democratic leadership and their PR arm, the American mainstream media, to demand his resignation? Let's see who calls for an investigation in pursuit of the facts and appropriate punishment for this astonishing betrayal of us and our country. As a former Democrat, I am deeply ashamed of my support of these anti-American Quislings.

I used to believe that the difference in opinion between Liberal and Conservative leadership as honest political and policy disagreement, but it's become clear to me that the liberal leadership in this country have lost all American perspective and are willing pawns of any and all Anti-American forces within and without America. Including those who have declared war on you and I and kill American soldiers everyday.

Kengors book will give the mainstream media the opportunity to prove what they always breathlessly proclaim: that they are not biased. Of course they will fail. They have been on the enemies' team for decades. Paul Kengor will be labeled as a right wing religeous freak, who can't be trusted, so the facts don't matter. Let's watch, learn and see if I am wrong.

Let's not let this fade away. A report on these facts was done in the London Times in the early '90's. It never got legs. Things have changed since. We now have the Internet, it's blogs, Talk Radio and Fox News added to your voice to help in the battle of truth and justice.

Important YouTube news you won't hear about...

The brilliant conservative commentator Michele Malkin had her video commentaries removed from YouTube by YouTube's management. Her videos were removed and her account terminated for "offensive" content.

I believe that the Internet's most powerful effect on our culture is the ability of alternative information to flow around the world mostly unfettered by elite journalists who have traditionally had monopolistic control over news and information in the conventional media. We now have bloggers who have repeatedly shot down fraudulent stories by those journalists, and have had huge effects on elections, media companies and their content.

Now we have elitists in Internet media, attempting to take control over the Internet in the same fashion that CBS and their partners in the former "Big 3" did in TV after World War II.

The only mitigating factor in this outrageous power grab is the very Internet they are attempting to control has such low barrier to entry, that alternative broadcast channels will undoutedly allow her to publicize her videos and the foolishness of YouTubes decision.

Hopefully the incredible power and resources of YouTube and their new parent Google will not be able to squash Malkin.

When I heard of this censorship. I couldn'believeve it. Malkin is a very professional commentator, and while controversial, is hardly offensive in the conventional meaning of the word. If Malkin is offensive, then YouTube is itself offensive and should be shut down. (97% of YouTubes content is at best frivolous and often grossly offensive). If this ridiculous attempt to quash political speech weren't so important, I would laugh at the sillyness of YouTube management's judgement.

I hope Malkin can utilize her contacts in the media to publicize her plight and generate enough heat on YouTube to have them reverse their decision.

Let's help! Click here to send an e-mail to YouTube expressing your thoughts on the subject. Let's not let this battle in the political war go to the elitist censors without a fight.

Katrina Truth - Shame on the Media!

I was listening to Dennis Prager on the radio today. One of the most fair and thoughtful hosts in the history of talk radio. For those of you unfamiliar with Dennis, to say he's a restrained and careful communicator is definitely an understatement. His motto is, "I prefer clarity to agreement." He takes great pains to present each side of the story, usually greatly exaggerating the time allotted for the side he disagrees with.

I say all this to recommend a story by that "politically inflamed" hyperbolic media outlet known as Popular Mechanics. Dennis referred to a story run in March 2006 that addresses the facts of Hurricane Katrina, and it's aftermath.

It is an astonishing story to read. The positive aspects of the tragedy have been totally ignored in mainstream media. Really makes them look VERY bad. I've been jaded for years on the media as the result of all of my research and "info-obsession". But this story exposes surprising journalistic irresponsibility in the mainstream media even in light of my prior utter contempt for them.

You must read it! The link is the title above. When are they going to get it? There are reasons they are loosing audience. The fraud this article uncovers is a big one.

This says it all about Clinton, from someone who knows

Of course I will be pounded for attacking Clinton again, but he just won't go away! Like the country music song says, "How can I miss you if you never go away?"

It's incredible to see Clinton melt down on International TV. I thought Chris Wallace
was more than diplomatic in his expression of an important question. At least as important as asking GW Bush why he lied about Iraq.

It is sickening sometimes to see the liberal political games played with the media's complicity,
but as a dear friend always reminds me, "Just let 'em talk, they will reveal themselves
for what they are..."

Clinton did that Sunday, again.

I'm going to switch back...

It's too tough being a conservative. I would like to be right all the time, no matter what the facts are. Then I wouldn't have to research things, think deeply about things, or make any real commitments to particular positions. I could cut my reading load WAY down. I could pretend that good intentions and dialog is all that is required for security and prosperity. I'm really good at those, too!

I'm going to switch back to being liberal. It's much easier.

Here's what I mean:

The Democrats disassemble the CIA in the 70's, then trash the Bush administration for bad intelligence in the '90's.

Certain Clinton administration personnel create rules that prevent sharing of information between the CIA and the FBI. Liberals then attack the Bush administration for the fact that the agencies didn't cooperate in the fight against terror. In fact, the creator of those rules gets to sit on a commission that produces an official "non-partisan" report criticizing the Bush administration for following the rules she created during the Clinton administration.

Bill Clinton cripples the military in the '90's, then the Democrats pound the Bush administration for poor preparesness and stretching the military too thin.

The Democrats hand out money to every special interest and voter block known to man for the last 60 years, then trash the Bush administration for budget excesses in a time of war.

The Democrats in control of Louisiana and New Orleans misappropriate billions of dollars in levy and emergency preparesness funding over the last 5 decades or so, and whine about the Bush administration's handling of the Katrina aftermath.

The Democrats wail about the lack of effective preventative measures in the fight against Islamo-Fascists, then sabotage several important new programs to gather intelligence, prosecute the war, and prevent attacks on America.

The Democrats throw a fit about Fox News, talk radio, Bloggers and other alternative media being too Conservative, all the while funding (with "the people's" money no less),the ultra left wing NPR and PBS for the last 40 years.

The Liberals demand freedom of speech at all costs, yet Democratic Senators threaten to yank ABC's license because the content of a show about the fight against terrorism is too tough on Clinton. Of course it was tough on Bush, too, but that was conveniently left out of the equation.

The Democrats get to say EXACTLY the same incredibly hateful anti-American things as the Islamo-Fascists that want to destroy America say, and still be called patriotic Americans.

The liberals want to profit from the free market/capitalist system, but attack and destroy successful companies that produce profits for shareholders, jobs for working Americans, and taxes for them to squander.

The left wingers get on Air(head) America and scream wildly profane epithets about Conservatives, yet call Conservatives hateful and bigoted.

The Democrats get to call our military personnel baby killers, terrorists and cold-blooded murderers, and say they sincerely support the troops.

The Democrats demand Republicans only "accused" of wrong doing to immediately resign their position, while alowing Democrats "accused" of wrong doing to stay in position and even reward them with new positions of power.

The list goes on ad nauseum. It's much easier than trying to be somewhat consistant and logical, and sometimes wrong. I could be right all the time, with little effort. And I'd really feel good about all my new liberal friends. We could talk about all the stupid, mean, bigoted, unsophisticated &^$##%&* Republicans, all the while smug in my open minded, nuanced, tolerant diversity.

Na, I'd rather put in the effort, fight the uphill battle in the press, and be accused of being a stupid, mean, unsophosticated *%%#$^@. I hope quite a few more Democrats feel the same way. It's the only hope this country has.

9/11 - and another thing...

I know that America is divided in this war on terror. I know many Americans absolutely hate GW Bush. In putting all the amazing 9/11 coverage on radio and TV in perspective, it seemed to me that many who have been enthusiastically, even joyously trashing America, it's military personnel, the President and those who agree with him are using 9/11 as a way of rehabilitating their patriotic bona fides.

In today’s hand wringing, touchy feely mainstream media this passes for real support of our nation and it's people. Just like the anti-war demonstrators, they don't have to do anything difficult, just stand on the bodies of those who died defending their rights to attack and destroy those who defend them now. Demonstrators fulfill their debt of gratitude as Americans by ignorant, loud protestation and journalists have but to speak with a breathless dramatic empathy to prove they are Patriots who care.

Of course every other day they do everything they can to sabotage the efforts of those charged with preventing another 9/11 and pursuing those guilty of attacking America and murdering innocent Americans. These things include carrying news stories of outrageous, unproven charges without even the most elementary journalistic efforts at confirming the story. Time and time again this happens with no apologies, the "journalist" just steps on the carcasses of those destroyed while racing on to the next groundless attack.

Don't get me wrong; I disagree with our President on many important things. I think he could do many things better. But absolutely nothing compares to the importance of our winning this historic war. And I don’t pretend that I can speak or act irresponsibly without having a real effect on our soldiers and their enemies.

History will not be kind to you my friends. While your emotional tributes to those who were murdered are appreciated, it does not clean the blood from your hands you have so willingly thrust in the gore of your fellow Americans while in the pursuit of your incredibly transparent political manipulations.

9/11 again

As I have watched and listened to the many reviews, tributes and memorials of this historic day 5 years ago, I have found myself increasingly doubtful that we as a country have the understanding, the toughness; indeed the will to succeed in this war on terror.

I know how we ended up here. It has a lot to do with the demonization of manhood. There are many shameful legacies of the drug infected freethinking of the ‘60’s. This one is particularly dangerous in times that require quick, strong, sustained action. It isn’t cool to be rough, tough and aggressive. You’ll hear a lot of sophisticated types describe these traits as “cowboy” and unsophisticated. There is an unthinking exaltation of talk and the disparaging of decisiveness and tough action. This is the fallout of the feminism of the ‘60’s and ‘70’s that has castrated this country.

We have not been able to muster the common sense understanding that there is real evil in this world. We risk our lives, the lives of our loved ones and this very nation when we allow our political prejudices and personal conspiracy theories to prevent us from grasping the awful truth – that international evil wants to kill us and we must be willing to do whatever it takes to defeat it. I know there’s evil in the world, and I know it ain't us!

It’s ironic the evil to which we so weakly respond and often excuse and appease, has discarded and abused women and the critical role female traits play in a society and culture. Conversely, we have discarded men and the traditional characteristics of men: strength, physicality and aggression. So we find ourselves in a battle of civilizations, indeed for civilization itself, psychically disarmed by our foolish disdain for traditional male attributes. We may have become incapable of the terrible aggression that is needed to defeat these evil Islamic Fascists.

Two dysfunctional cultures, one in the interest of power and domination abusively discarding half the human equation; the other in the interest of equality, peace and understanding discarding the other, thereby guaranteeing victimhood in the face of the unbridled evil of the first. Sad irony, indeed.

We loose this battle and you’ll witness the violent destruction of feminism like you can’t believe. Just ask the Afghani’s. You’ll see a lock on the freedom of speech unlike anything any American can imagine. Prosperity, freedom, civil rights, social advancement. You name it, if you value it, it will be gone! Including, for some of us, our lives.

How many times do the evil ones have to declare war on us before we hear it? How many more times do they have to assassinate, behead, murder and destroy, before we unite and defeat them?

America has no enemy it cannot defeat, except one: lack of will. If we work together, with strength and determination for as long as it takes, no enemy can vanquish this great country. However, if we continue to bicker, attack our valiant defenders and sabotage ourselves, a few backward thousand will utterly destroy us.
