No No No To Communism
Sunsara Taylor, a/k/a Revolutionary Worker #1264, implores America to say NO to the Inauguration! No to Bush's "Monsters' Ball." Reading Sunsara's message makes me feel all warm and mushy, and damn proud to be an American!
Somehow we find ourselves, in 2005, in the United States, perched on the edge of utter darkness, re-fighting battles—for science, for truth, for the hopes and equality of women, for respect for other peoples, and for the value and the continued existence of the planet itself—that were supposed to have been settled and secured by now. This is not what we were prepared for. And it’s still hard to come to terms with.
What did you expect you dumb shit - this is America! Land of the Free. Home of the Brave. Take the hint, you and your lack of morals, your lack of values, your lies and deceptions and your politics are not welcome here in the United States of America. America has spoken!
With fanfare and bombast, an image of a mighty, unquestioned Dubya without significant opposition will be used to chill and extinguish the spirit and the hopes of millions around the world. Will people watch this inauguration alone in their homes, feeling swallowed up and suffocated? Will the millions who felt so sure-footed just two short months ago when leaving jobs and school, criss-crossing the country to prevent the re-election of George Bush, feel totally defeated and negated and helpless?
Um... that would be millions of chilled communists and chilled leftie communist sympathizers without spirit and hope. Most Americans consider this a good thing, we want the millions of communists and leftie communist sympathizers to feel totally defeated, negated and helpless. In fact, we don't just want you to feel it, we want you be totally defeated, negated and helpless! Why? Because this is America you jackass, and we celebrate freedom!
We are not only celebrating the Inauguration of President George W. Bush, we are celebrating the defeat of John F'n Kerry. We are celebrating the defeat of the Communist Party.
You don't like it? Move!

Here We Go Again...
A memory card which records voting data on a voting machine in Daytona Beach has failed and all 13,000 votes must be recounted.
When the error was discovered Monday, both parties were notified and everyone gathered around to watch the removal of the ballots and their storage in the vault. Now they have to talk about how to recount the ballots.
Mommy... make it stop....

America Can Do Better!
Nothing like a little media bias for The Great Pretender:
From the original MSNBC transcript of John Kerry’s interview with Tom Brokaw on October 28:
Brokaw: Someone has analyzed the President’s military aptitude tests and yours, and concluded that he has a higher IQ than you do.
Kerry: That’s great. More power. I don’t know how they’ve done it, because my record is not public. So I don’t know where you’re getting that from.
Jeepers. The Great Pretender has already gone on record saying all his records have been released. Rush sums is up well...
Campaign handlers claim Kerry isn't hiding any of his war records, insisting all have been released to the public. That simply is not true. Many more records -- including Kerry's medical records -- could and should be released.
On Aug. 23, the Pentagon responded to a Washington Post Freedom of Information Act request by turning over just six pages of the 100-page Kerry dossier. Why? Kerry wouldn't authorized the release of the full file.
On the issue of military service, Kerry boldly says: "Bring it on!" Yet he won't bring it out.
That's right Rush, and now with the help of MSNBC, he's covering it up!
MSNBC changed its version of the transcript, dated October 31, removing all reference to Kerry's military records:
Brokaw: “Someone has analyzed the president’s military aptitude tests and yours, and concluded that he has a higher IQ than you do.”
Kerry: “That’s great. More power. I don’t know how they’ve done it.”
By omitting that critical sentence, MSNBC has deliberately lied to America concerning what a presidential candidate said two days before the election. How dare they do such a thing?
I asked them. How much do you want to bet I get no response?

Weapons of Mass Confusion
Okay. Let me see if I got this straight.
60 Minutes was all set to run a bullsheite story the day before the election about how the "incompetent" President Bush screwed up and let Saddam's weapons of mass destruction slip through our hands.
Surprise, surprise, surprise. The story is a fraud.
Of course, true to form, and with no regard for the truth, The Great Pretender was all over it like white on rice.
But... but... there were no WMDS. Everyone knows that - don't they??
No matter. True or not, such a crock of bullsheite would have left the President swatting at flies for the few days before the election.
Alas! Before 60 Minutes could run the lie, the NY Times, pulled the rug out from under them and ran the story about the make-believe WMDs.
But wait... there's more! Enter... Russia!
So. The end result is that the NY Times bullsheite attack on President Bush turns into vindication for the President, as it confirms that there were WMDs, the UN was full of cash and caca, and... yes, the Iraqi War was necessary.
Well. It took a year of bullsheite mumbo jumbo but I guess we finally got that straightened out, didn't we.
So. Whatever will they come up with next?

Oy vey. What's Next?
How do you say 'pandering' in Yiddish?
Bubba in a beanie and other acts of desperation in the Sunshine State:
The final scramble for voter support in Florida, the biggest swing state, has drawn candidates and their surrogates almost daily. In this feverish environment, every voter is considered crucial. And in South Florida, Jewish voters took center stage on Tuesday.
No matter. Bubba in a beanie is still Bubba.
A recent poll by the American Jewish Committee indicated that Bush — a staunch defender of the conservative Israeli government — has gained support from Jewish Americans since he received only 19 percent of the Jewish vote in 2000. The September poll of 1,000 Jewish-Americans found 69 percent favored Kerry and 24 percent favored Bush.
"Bill Clinton's failed policies are part of the reason Israel faces the problems it has," said Edward Kone, a Parkland attorney who came to protest Clinton's appearance. "I like President Bush's policy of isolating (Palestinian leader) Yasser Arafat and not dealing with terrorists."

An excellent piece from the NY Post:
THERE is not going to be a military draft. No matter who is elected. No draft. None. Period.
The shameless lies told for political advantage, the immoral scare tactics behind the warnings that President Bush has a "secret plan" to bring back the draft, have reached a new low point in recent American politics.
Sen. John Kerry knows there isn't going to be a draft.
Sen. John Edwards, who doesn't know much else, knows there isn't going to be a draft.
The Democratic National Committee knows there isn't going to be a draft.
And they're all warning us that a draft is on the way — unless, of course, young people vote for the Democratic ticket.
Apart from assuming that all young Americans are cowards with no sense of patriotism, the naked dishonesty of the "draft scare" tactic is stunning even to someone who's watched politicians misbehave for decades.
There isn't going to be a draft.
Read the rest. You won't be sorry.
Top Israeli Rabbi Endorses Bush
Rabbi Shalom Yosef Elyashiv, responding to queries from Americans residing in Israel, has decided that Bush is better for Israel than his competitor, John Kerry, said an assistant to the rabbi, Haim Cohen.
"Apparently George Bush loves Israel and thus we need to vote for him," the rabbi said Tuesday, according to Cohen.
Elyashiv decided that the US is a "kingdom of grace," or great friend to Israel, and thus the elections there can directly influence the Jewish state, Cohen said.

Roe v. Wade
Been thinking about Roe v. Wade. I am trying to understand what the heck The Great Pretender meant when he was replying to a question about tax-funded abortion during the second debate.
"... you have to afford people their constitutional rights" ... "that means" ... "making certain that you don't deny a poor person the right to be able to have whatever the Constitution affords them if they can't afford it otherwise." -- John Kerry
So. Did Roe v. Wade determine that there is a Constitutional "Right to Privacy" with respect to a woman's body, health and medical decisions? Or did Rove v. Wade determine that there is a Constitutional Right to an Abortion?
According to The Great Pretender, if you can't afford the right to privacy, the taxpayers must provide it for you? I would like to know, how much does the right to privacy cost? Last time I looked, it was free.
In a nutshell, what Kerry is saying is, not only does he support abortion, but he supports the notion that abortion should be funded by tax dollars.
Well. I'm thinking... tax funded boob jobs are next. Sure, a little lift, why not? After all, a boob job is a private medical procedure. I am a woman, I have a constitutional right to choose to have such a procedure. But, problem is, I can't afford to have a boob job.
Under the Kerry interpretation of the Constitution, I have a constitutional right to have a boob job. If you don't pay for my boob job, you are denying me my constitutional rights. So cough up some cash.
Abortion is a legal medical procedure that a woman can choose to have, if she so desires. Yeah well, a boob job fits that criteria as well.
To say I have a right to have one and if I can't afford to have one, then the taxpayers have to pay for it is as close to insanity as you can get.

Top Kerry Donor Accused of Aiding Radical Iranian Clerics
(CNSNews.com) - A pro-democracy Iranian group based in the United States accuses a top fund-raiser for Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry of using his position to advance the agenda of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
The Kerry fund-raiser, New York-based investment banker Hassan Nemazee, is scheduled to be deposed in a civil lawsuit next week involving accusations that he has served as an agent for the Islamic government of Iran.
A group of Iranian expatriates, the Student Movement Coordinating Committee for Democracy in Iran, and two American authors plan to hold a press conference on Thursday to discuss the Iranian regime's influence on Sen. John Kerry's presidential campaign.
Ken Timmerman, author of several books on the Middle East, believes that Kerry "has adopted many of the positions that Tehran's lobbyists in America are tying to champion."

Tax Talk 2004
Tax Freedom Day® is the day when Americans will finally have earned enough money to pay off their total tax bill for the year.
So. Guess what kiddies? Tax Freedom Day in 2004 was celebrated on April 11th, the earliest Tax Freedom Day for 37 years. That's right!
"Because the bubble in 1999 and 2000 boosted tax collections to artificially high levels, the drop since then is all the more dramatic. In fact, it is the biggest drop in America's tax burden for at least a century." -- Scott Hodge, President of the Tax Foundation
Thank you George W. Bush! That's right.
The Great Pretender continues to consistently lie about taxes, claiming that Americans are actually paying more taxes under Bush but like most of his claims, this claim is easily refuted with data.
Consider that George Bush and John Kerry are both wealthy men. Consider that George Bush owns only one home, his ranch in Texas. Consider that Kerry owns four mansions, all worth several million dollars.
Consider that George Bush paid $250,000 in taxes this year; John Kerry paid $90,000.
That's right! Because of George Bush, you paid less taxes, I paid less taxes, we all paid less taxes. Even John Kerry paid less taxes.

What Would You Say?
What would you say if you knew that a certain texas oil baron was discovered to have received special oil allocations from Saddam Hussien?
What would you say if you knew that the same texas oil baron was discovered to have received the "lion's share" of all special oil allocations from Saddam Hussien?
What would you say if you knew that the same texas oil baron earned about $23 million in profits from those special allocations?
What would you say if you knew that the same texas oil baron had most likely helped Saddam to pay for purchases of arms in violation of the U.N. sanctions?
What would you say if you knew that the same texas oil baron was linked to Enron?
What would you say if you knew that the same texas oil baron was a personal friend, public supporter and political ally of Saddam Hussein?
What would you say if you knew that the same texas oil baron was Saddam's buddy even when the United States was at war with Hussein?
What would you say if you knew that the same texas oil baron also did business with Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi?
What would you say if you knew that the same texas oil baron lobbied for the lifting of sanctions against Iraq?
What would you say if you knew that the company owned by that same texas oil baron is now under subpoena from a federal grand jury in the Oil for Food scandal?
What would you say if you knew that the same texas oil baron donated big bucks to a political party?
Whatever you say, you can't say it about George Bush. Because the texas oil baron just so happens to be Oscar Wyatt. His money goes to the democrats and his support goes to John F. Kerry.

The Detroit Free Press reports that the Michigan Republican Party is asking four county prosecutors to file charges against filmmaker Michael Moore, charging that he illegally offered underwear, noodles and snacks to college students in exchange for their promise to vote.
Never mind that the law prohibits a person from contracting with another for something of value in exchange for agreeing to vote.
Habitual nonvoters were invited on stage to pledge to vote for Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry. First-time student voters are offered prizes such as clean underwear. Presumably, the underwear is not Michael's.
The GOP said Moore also offered students a clean dorm room, a year's supply of Tostitos and a package of Ramen noodles.
Hey Mikey... how about a carrot? No? I didn't think so.

Troops Prefer Bush To Kerry
So. The Great Pretender is not fooling our troops! That's right.
What is being hailed as an "unscientific survey" of U.S. military personnel shows they are behind President Bush by a 4-to-1 ratio. The "unscientific survey" was conducted Sept. 15-28 by the Army Times Publishing Co., which distributes the weekly newspapers Army Times, Navy Times, Air Force Times and Marine Corps Times. (Army Times Publishing is owned by Gannett, which also publishes USA TODAY.)
They received 4,165 responses on a secure Web site. The publisher cautioned that the results are not a scientific poll and for some reason, wants to stress the point that its readers are older, higher in rank and more career-oriented than the military as a whole.
I am sure Gannett was rather put out to publish any survey that showed 73% said they would vote for Bush if the election were held today; 18% said they would vote for Kerry. Too bad. I am sure if it came out for Kerry, "unscientific" would not be mentioned.
Bummer for Gannett and The Great Pretender.
Scientific or not, the experts who examined the survey results said they do not bode well for the Kerry campaign's efforts to woo the military, a traditionally Republican and conservative voting bloc. That's right, a traditionally Republican and conservative group that has strongly supported Republican presidential candidates in the post-Vietnam era.
Of the respondents, 59% identified themselves as Republicans, 20% as independents and 13% as Democrats.
Two-thirds of those responding said The Great Pretender's anti-war activities after he returned from Vietnam make them less likely to vote for him.
Scientific or not, "You can't dismiss" the results, said Peter Feaver, a Duke University political scientist who for years has studied the political leanings of the U.S. military. Feaver said it's unlikely that Bush will receive 70% of votes cast by military personnel. But the results suggest it will be difficult for Kerry to make substantial gains among a group that has strongly supported Republican presidential candidates in the post-Vietnam era.
Feaver said he suspects Kerry is losing support among those in uniform because he seems less committed than Bush to prosecuting the war in Iraq.

Debate: Kerry Lies Part 1
The Great Pretender's statements during this Debate perpetuate the same lies and in many cases completely contradict his statements prior to the Debate. Because they are so numerous and extensive, I am taking them on one by one.
"The president made the judgment to divert forces from under General Tommy Franks from Afghanistan before the Congress even approved it to begin to prepare to go to war in Iraq." -- John Kerry, Presidential Debate, September 30, 2004
Kerry has made this claim before:
September 21, 2004: During a press conference in Jacksonville Florida, Kerry suggested that Bush had taken needed troops out of Afghanistan.
September 21, 2004: In response to Kerry suggestion, Gen. Franks said in an ABC radio interview with Sean Hannity: "That's absolutely incorrect."
Despite direct, clear and unequivocal denial by Gen. Tommy Franks, Kerry still continued to lie about this to the American public before the Debate:
September 24, 2004: In his Philadelphia speech Sept. 24, Kerry declared: "All you have to do is ask Gen. Tommy Franks how surprised he was that those troops moved out of there (Afghanistan) when he was trying to do the job he was doing."
And Kerry continued to lie to the American people during the Debate:
September 30, 2004: "The president made the judgment to divert forces from under General Tommy Franks from Afghanistan before the Congress even approved it to begin to prepare to go to war in Iraq." -- John Kerry, Presidential Debate
At the risk of being repetitive: there is no denying the fact that the Great Pretender completely ignored the truth and deliberately lied to America and the rest of world both before and during the Debate.

Debate: Kerry Lies
I was behind most of America on viewing the debate because I was marching up and down US1 in front of the University of Miami to counter the anti-American left.
I admit to being a bit disappointed in the reports I was hearing on the radio about how how it went.
I have now caught up and I am completely disgusted by the manipulation of facts and flat out lies told by The Great Pretender during this debate. He again repeated the same old lies and continued to show a remarkable amount of ignorance with regard to the history of the United States of America and events both national and international.
I am offended at what Kerry said, for in making these statements, he assumes that I am too ignorant to know better and stupid enough to believe his lies, both before and during the debate.

Ann Nails It!
"The Swift Boat Veterans for Truth show the role of the individual in history. It wasn't Republican strategists who finished Kerry off two months before the election; it was the American people. The Swift Boat veterans came along and kicked Kerry in the shins and no matter how much heat they took, they were brave and wouldn't give up. ... CBS was forced to run a fake story so early in the campaign that it was exposed as a fraud -- only because of the Swift Boat vets. These brave men, many of them decorated war heroes, have now not only won the election for Bush, they have ended Dan Rather's career. It's often said that we never lost a battle in Vietnam, but that the war was lost at home by a seditious media demoralizing the American people. Ironically, the leader of that effort was Rather's predecessor at CBS News, Walter Cronkite, president of the Ho Chi Minh Admiration Society. It was Cronkite who went on air and lied about the Tet offensive, claiming it was a defeat for the Americans. He told the American people the war was over and we had lost. Ronald Reagan said CBS News officials should have been tried for treason for those broadcasts. CBS has already lost one war for America. The Swift Boat Vets weren't going to let CBS lose another one." --Ann Coulter

The Sweet Smell of Panic
The smell of panic is in the air according to a "veteran Democratic strategist" on the release of the TIME poll.
From the NY Post:
Democrats were reaching for the panic button yesterday amid growing fears that John Kerry is blowing the 2004 race — while President Bush basked in the glow of a successful New York convention.
"The smell of panic is in the air," said a veteran Democratic strategist as Time magazine reported that Bush has suddenly built an 11-point lead over Kerry.
Democratic angst was fueled by Kerry's decision to hold a shrill, post-midnight rally right after Bush's well-received convention speech and blast the wartime commander in chief as "unfit to lead."
"It looked reactionary and panicky and angry — not confident. That's not presidential," said a senior Democrat.
Others said Kerry is starting to look as tone-deaf as 1988 Massachusetts loser Michael Dukakis.
The stunning turnaround began after anti-Kerry Vietnam vets went on the air with TV attack ads noting how Kerry once painted fellow vets as war criminals.
Heh. Of course an "11 to 13 point bounce" caused a bit of panic over in Camp Kerry. Sure, especially since most everyone was convinced there weren't enough uncommitted voters to give anyone a bounce. Here's a little clue: lots of people don't bother to pay attention until right about now. And lots more will begin paying attention just in time for the debates.
Time to face a few facts.
1. The support for Kerry has always been soft. Yeah, you got the ranting and raving Anybody But Bush crowd but they don't count for much and they'd vote for Mickey Mouse as long he was a democrat.
2. There is no denying the fact that the SBVFT have brought to the foreground questions concerning Kerry's number one platform, his service in Vietnam, and following that, his anti-war stance.
3. Camp Kerry's reaction to the SBVFT was pathetic and did more damage than good. Threatened lawsuits, intimidation tactics, lawyer letters, and his supporting talking heads (Carville, Davis, Matthews) made screaming fools of themselves. Unimpressive to say the least.
4. Voters are considering things like leadership, trust, honesty, values and likeability - things they should consider when deciding who to vote for. Kerry is in big trouble there, for 20 years his leadership has been non-existent, and all this flip flopping brings his honesty and trustworthiness into question. And people just don't seem to like Kerry.
5. The top issue in the polls are terrorism and homeland security. America knows where both candidates stand on this. A kinder, more gentle approach is not the answer when the threat is well recognized and important to voters.
6. Bottom line, even for those who don't like Bush, now that America is getting a look at Kerry, Bush don't seem so bad.
August was not a good month for Kerry.
Consider Kerry's Thursday night whine and screech fest and September is off to a very bad start, it looks to be worse for Kerry than August.
Of course, Kerry's Thursday opening line was a classic: "Something important happened tonight, the Red Sox pulled within 2 1/2 games in the East." Really? Well, maybe that was in the Cambodian Baseball League, 'cause in the American League, my Yanks were still up 3 1/2. Ha!
KERRY LIED!!!! KERRY LIED!!! Sigh. How pathetic is that?
In September - we will be talking about Kerry's Senate record.
We have hardly touched on that juicy little topic as of yet.
Yupper. The smell of panic is in the air.
And to me, it smells like a breath of fresh air.
A Democrat Speaks
Listing all the weapon systems that Senator Kerry tried his best to shut down sounds like an auctioneer selling off our national security but Americans need to know the facts.
- The B-1 bomber, that Senator Kerry opposed, dropped 40% of the bombs in the first six months of Operation Enduring Freedom.
- The B-2 bomber, that Senator Kerry opposed, delivered air strikes against the Taliban in Afghanistan and Hussein’s command post in Iraq.
- The F-14A Tomcats, that Senator Kerry opposed, shot down Khadifi’s Libyan MIGs over the Gulf of Sidra.
- The modernized F-14D, that Senator Kerry opposed, delivered missile strikes against Tora Bora.
- The Apache helicopter, that Senator Kerry opposed, took out those Republican Guard tanks in Kuwait in the Gulf War.
- The F-15 Eagles, that Senator Kerry opposed, flew cover over our Nation’s Capital and this very city after 9/11.I could go on and on and on:
- Against the Patriot Missile that shot down Saddam Hussein’s scud missiles over Israel,
- Against the Aegis air-defense cruiser, Against the Strategic Defense Initiative.
- Against the Trident missile, against, against, against.This is the man who wants to be the Commander in Chief of our U.S. Armed Forces? U.S. forces armed with what? Spitballs?

Electoral College Swings
Yay!! The Electoral College swings to Bush!!
Bush aides interviewed in New York said that the Prez now has 288 electoral votes and is surging in even more states.
What's different from 2000?
Bush is also leading Kerry by 1 to 3 percent in likely voter polling, meaning he could win the popular vote, too. And the change isn't just a Bush-Cheney vision.
Pollster Tony Fabrizio has weighed the shift in the Electoral College and comes to this conclusion: Kerry's bad August, coupled with the swift boat controversy, has pushed Bush into the lead. "During the last two weeks of the swift boat controversy," he says in an E-mail, "there has been a dramatic 145-electoral-vote swing away from Kerry/Edwards to Bush/Cheney."
