Times Shocked?

The NY Times is shocked . . . shocked! that the National Security Adminstration would listen in on international phone calls between Al-Qaeda terrorists and Americans. That would be the same New York Times that printed on the front page an illegally intercepted phone call between Newt Gingrich and John Boehner. Evidently, the NYT policy is that the political-hit-job-against-Republicans type is good eavesdropping and the prevent-terrorist-attacks type is bad eavesdropping.

Boland Amendment Redux?

Why are Democrats filibustering to prevent the U.S. Senate from voting on the Patriot Act? For five years the Democrat strategy has been to obstruct anything President Bush tries to do; but there may be something more sinister in this latest obstruction. Here is my theory:

Most Senate Democrats know perfectly well that the Patriot Act is not only necessary to homeland security, but that none of the abuses that critics worry about have occurred. So why would Democrats be willing to risk a terror attack against the U.S. by handcuffing our intelligence efforts? Because they don't believe that President Bush will risk a terror attack.

In the 1980's Democrats used the Budget process to prevent President Reagan from helping the Nicarauguan Contras against the Communist Sandanista government, and as a result the Iran-Contra scandal occurred, weakening the Reagan presidency. In fact, Democrats could almost taste a repeat of Watergate, and were flustered when Ollie North famously turned the tables on them.

So, what's Iran-Contra got to do with the Patriot Act? Just this: by letting the Patriot Act expire, Democrats are hoping to tempt Bush into carrying on the intel operations that were practiced under the authority of the Patriot Act, but which are now illegal. When Bush takes the bait -- so their fantasy goes -- the Democrats will finally have the noose with which to end the "illegitimate" Bush Presidency and sweep into power again, just like 1974.

The best part is that, if Bush continues the now-illegal Patriot Act activities, there will be no terror attack for the Dems to be blamed for, and once Democrats are restored to ruling Party status they can take whatever measures they deem necessary to protect the homeland. But, for Democrats it's first things first.

Tea Time

Two-hundred thirty-two years ago today American Patriots illustrated to the British Crown what they thought of being governed by laws that were not enacted by their own elected representatives. The Boston Tea Party was no act of anarchy, but a statement of principle. Free Men have the God-given right to be governed by officials whom they elect.

In the time since December 16, 1773 the appetite for Self-government seems to have waned somewhat in America, but the impulse to impose alien laws on the American People still burns bright among Liberal elites. Consider Supreme Court Justices Breyer, Kennedy and O’Connor citing foreign laws to invalidate the democratic acts of the Texas State Legislature and Executive. Consider Democrat stars Bill Clinton, Al Gore, John Kerry, etc… insisting that the United States abide by a Treaty that was rejected by our Constitutional institutions (i.e. the Senate voted 95-0 to reject the Kyoto Accords). Consider the insistence of American Leftists that the United States Congress should abdicate to the United Nations its sovereign authority to make war.

Americans today would do well to imbibe the spirit of liberty that motivated our forefathers to fill Boston Harbor with English tea two-plus centuries ago. Our heritage of freedom and self-government was dearly bought by the generation that fought The War for Independence, and has been maintained at a great cost of blood and treasure by succeeding generations of Americans. If we would honor the deeds of the Patriots of the Boston Tea Party we should never be docile when hard won freedoms are threatened by those who would impose alien rule on the People of this nation, whether Kings, Politicians or Courts.

Man of the Year

strong>My pick for 2005 Man of the Year: The Purple-fingered Iraqi Voter.


Three times in 2005 Iraqis proved the elitist snobs wrong, those who said that Arabs and Muslims just don't want or can't handle democracy. Iraqi voters braved terrorist threats to cast their ballots for an interim government, a federal constitution and the first democratically elected full-fledged government in their nation's long history.

Thanks to their fortitude, the military might of the United States and its Coalition allies, and the resolve and vision of President George W. Bush, Iraqis now have a better, more free life than they ever have, and a better, more free life than the People of any other Arab country.

The Iraqi voters deserve Man of the Year, hands down...or should I say Fingers Up?

Wrong Side of History?

Can you remember when Jimmy Carter declared the United States of America to have been "on the wrong side of history"? In order to get us on the "right" side of history Carter used the existence of human rights abuses by authoritarian allies of America as the rationale to take sides with (or at least keep out of the way of) "indigenous popular revolutionary movements."

The fruit of the Carter Doctrine included Marxist regimes in Angola, Uganda, Mozambique, Rhodesia/Zmibabwe and Nicaragua, as well as Marxist revolutionary movements in El Salvador, Ecuador, Costa Rica, South Africa, the Philippines, and most notoriously of all an Islamo-Facist Iran, whose violations of human rights surpass anything else the modern Middle-East had to offer in scale and kind, and which became the number one sugar-daddy of anti-American Islamist terrorism.

Well, the "historical dialectic" (actually the awesome might of the U.S. military and a Commander in Chief with vision and determination) has brought us to a place where the People of Iraq are asserting their human right to national self-determination against the terroist tyrants of Islamism, who would doom them to theocracy, and with whom does the Party of Jimmy Carter take sides?

Good Dissent and Bad Dissent

Remember the good old days (i.e. 2004) when Democrats chided us that "dissent is patriotic"? That would have been before Joe Lieberman dissented from the Democrat Party Line.

Defining Torture Down

Torture ain’t what it used to be. The media now routinely refers to anything from guards roughing up prisoners to holding terrorists in secret prisons as “torture.”

This re-definition has gone so far that it is now actually easier for an American to be accused of torture than to be accused of racism!

Now Showing

I'm taking my wife to see "The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe" tonight; but she initially did not want to go, because she wasn't interested in a political documentary about Bill and Hillary's White House scandal-control operation. She thought I said the movie title was "The Liar, The Witch and The War Room."

Coverage imbalance

The lamentable death of a young boy aboard a Southwest Airlines plane that slid off the runway at Chicago's Midway Airport yesterday has, in just 24 hours, already received more minutes of big media news coverage than the United Nations Oil-for-Food scandal.

Who says Liberals are anti-Christmas

The DCCC's mission is to elect more Democrats to Congress -- and House Minority Leader, Nancy Pelosi, (Defeatist, CA) is telling Americans that there is no better gift this holiday season than making a contribution toward throwing the Republicans right out of Congress.

I tuned in mid-way through John Kerry's complaint about young Americans breaking into homes and terrorizing children, and I initially assumed that Kerry was criticizing Bill Clinton and Janet Reno for the stormtrooper abduction of asylum seeker, Elian Gonzalez.

Alas, Kerry had simply reverted to form, and was demonizing American troops hunting terrorists in Iraq. The leopard cannot change his spots.

Innocent until...

Suspected Dirty Bomber, Jose Padilla, held in U.S. Military custody as an enemy combatant for over two years, has been indicted on terrorism-related federal charges. The indictment merely means that the accused will stand trial, not that Mr. Padilla is guilty.

By contrast, if his name was Tom DeLay the indictment would mean that he is guilty.

FINALLY!

The President and Vice President have FINALLY responded to the Democrat re-write of the history of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Why did it take so long for Bush and Cheney to respond to the outrageous Democrat charges that the Administration lied or manipulated WMD intel in order to start a war with Saddam Hussein?

Bush gave the Democrats three years to be motivated by patriotism to get behind America's War on Terror, but has finally concluded that Democrat Patriotism is a dry well.

George W. Bush is a hopeful man. Many of us reached that sad conclusion years ago.

Grim Milestone

Peace activists marked the grim milestone of the 2,000th torched car, as the "dialog" between disaffected youths and French Government Ministers entered its thirteenth day.

No rush to restore order

The French have once again demonstrated a depth of sophistication and maturity that American Cowboys like George W. Bush and his Neo-Con Cabal could never hope to attain. Refusing to rush to the use of force in response to the ongoing outburst of self-expression by French Youths who have allegedly burned and looted many towns around Paris, French authorities have insisted upon letting U.N. Inspectors complete their work, to determine whether or not the Youths actually possess matches.

While billions of francs worth of private and public property have allegedly been destroyed in the two-week rampage, without a forceful response from the Government, a spokesperson for the French Ministry of Culture was quick to point out that the Government of France would meet any encroachment upon the Louvre with the full strength of the French Military, unlike the low-brow Capitalist Pig Americans who protected Iraqi oil while the Baghdad Museum was being looted.

Live to Fight Another Day

On July 1, 2005, prior to the John Roberts Supreme Court nomination, I posted the following remarks:

"With the retirement of Justice Sandra Day O'Connor from the U.S. Supreme Court President Bush has the opportunity to either fire up or thoroughly demoralize the Conservative base of the Republican Party, just in time for the 2006 Election Cycle . . . Bush should choose the best Constitutionalist he can find and be well prepared to defeat the Democrats in the Court of Public Opinion. The Republican Base will rally to the cause, and gladly open their pocketbooks.

Bush's best pick for the Supreme Court will be any nominee that triggers the "Nuclear Option," because that will mean the swift filling of the Federal Courts with the President's nominees, an inspired and generous Republican base, and Democrats even more enraged and unhinged than they are today. So, why wait? Let the mushroom cloud roll, the sooner the better."


Well, the nomination of Harriet Miers certainly fit the "thoroughly demoralize" category, but now with Miers' withdrawal, President Bush has a new chance to pick the fight he can and should win. Not a fight with his own supporters this time, but a fight with the Leftist Democrat minority.

The Conservative Base of the Republican Party is anxious to kiss and make up with Bush, and fight for a Supreme Court nominee who fulfills the President's campaign promise of appointing judges in the mold of Scalia and Thomas.

The Miers withdrawal is a huge relief to Conservatives, and a great opportunity for Bush to lead Conservatives into a long-anticipated and thoroughly necessary fight.
