It speaks

OBL (via Drudge): "Your security is not in the hands of Kerry or Bush or Al Qaeda. Your security is in your hands. Each state that doenst mess with our security has automatically secured their security."

I take this to mean that al Qaida will leave us alone if we elect John Kerry and, as his campaign has hinted, his administration turns its back on Israel. This offer, coupled with the lack of distinction between the words of OBL and those of Michael Moore (feted at the Democratic Convention and currently campaigning for Kerry) ought itself to be sufficient reason to vote for Bush. Some say he wants Bush to win and expects a pro-Bush backlash against his message, but I don't think so. The Islamists successfully threw the Spanish election to the anti-Iraq-war Socialists, and I'm guessing their assumption is that Americans will react the same way. We will know in four days whether the majority of Americans are courageous or cowardly.

Election, Post-Election Nightmare

We Vernon's Nightmare: he says that this election could resemble those in Germany and the Deep South in the 1930s. It's starting to look more and more like it, and things like this don't exactly allay these fears.

Brown Shirts strike again

NewsMax.com: Kerry Campaign Stops Pennsylvania Showing of 'Stolen Honor':

"'They just announced - within the hour - that the premier here is cancelled because the theater was threatened with litigation. Is this what free speech will look like under a Kerry administration if he gets elected?' Chronwatch asked."

No further comment needed.

Get out the vote vs. make up the vote

Thousands of new-voter cards in Ohio undeliverable (via href="http://www.drudgereport.com">Drudge)

Well, it's no quite as tacky as buying votes with crack, but more harmful in that somebody is disenfranchising thousands of voters by cancelling out their votes with the votes of non-existent people. The usual suspects, no doubt, and they will no doubt show up after the election with their lawyer SWAT teams to litigate that "every vote be counted" i.e. including those cast by thousands who don't exist.

Get out the vote? If this is what they mean by it, they should just get out.

Yasser, that's my candidate

WorldNetDaily: Yasser Arafat endorses Kerry: "Kerry will be much better for the Palestinian cause"

What does that mean? With Kerry in the White House, the wall will come down so that Palestinian down-and-outers can resume their heroic effort to blow up Jews? Or the Palestinians will be closer to their historic goal of "pushing the zionist entity into the sea"? Why are Muslim leaders calling for Kerry to be elected? I think these are good questions for swing voters.

See Akhmed shoot. Shoot, Akhmed! Shoot!

WorldNetDaily reports that Palestinian school children are being taught through school textbooks and music videos to hate and kill Jews. Here's an example of such "entertainment":

"You will not be saved, Oh Zionist, from the volcano of my country's stones, You are the target of my eyes, I will even willingly fall as a Shahid [Martyr for Allah]. You are the target of my eyes, I will even willingly fall as a Shahid. Allah Akbar, Oh the young ones."

How dysfunctional is a society when Eminem and Britney Spears seem like good role models by comparison? The day seems far off when, as Golda Meir once put it, Palestinians love their children more than they hate Jews.

More selective "investigation"

Power Line reports the outrage of a woman whose father died in Vietnam at ABC News' ability to see only what helps Kerry:

"Many of us kids of Vietnam participated in a huge rally on Capitol Hill on Sept. 12, hoping to explain how Kerry's actions impacted our lives, yet your ABC Washington bureau couldn't even walk down the street to cover it.

And now you send people to Vietnam?!!!! "


This woman promises a campaign against propagandists masqerading as journalists. This campaign is long overdue but will require millions of people realizing the extent of the problem and caring enough to do something about it.

Latest anti-democratic action by Democrats

According to Drudge, Kerry activists will he helping transport early ballots in Florida to their locations. Gee, I wonder what would happen to any votes for Bush among those in their possesstion? I wonder what will happen to democracy given that one of the two major parties has rejected the will of the people in favor of systematic election rigging?

You read it here first

Drudge: "What's going on? For one thing, the charge that Kerry is too liberal, which Bush emphasized mostly in the third and last debate on Wednesday night, seems to be sticking."

Here I am, days ahead of the curve. Too bad nobody reads my blog.

Beeb: What terrorism?

According to the BBC, "the perceived [terrorist] threat is a politically driven fantasy - and al-Qaida a dark illusion." --from The Guardian .

Don't worry, be happy! Exploding buildings? What exploding buildings?

It's heartening to know that the UK's taxpayer-funded news service is taking such a sober approach to things.

Iraq perspective

Death tolls in Iraq: a dozen today, a dozen tomorrow. So it's a disaster, it's all a mistake, right? (That evil Bush!)

Oh wait. They just dug up another of Saddam's mass graves. Hundreds of bodies: men, women and children.

Never mind.

Dems: let's sue over phony disenfranchisement

DNC: Make up claims of disenfranchisement, because we know those nasty Republicans do it anyway!

Either they believe this or they don't.

If they don't believe Republicans disenfranchise voters, then they are cynical liars.

If they do believe that such things still go on, then they minimize legitimate cases of disenfranchisement by crying wolf.

Either way, what is implied about how the Democrats truly view minorities?

Is this Karl Rove's October surprise?

Statement by John O'Neill on "Nightline" Appearance: "Further, one has to wonder why ABC News will not address the serious questions as to why John Kerry only received an honorable discharge through the act of then President Carter, seven years after his discharge, and had to have all of his military citations reissued, on the same day, when he became a United States Senator in 1985." (via Power Line)

Zogby Tracking: Undecideds breaking for Bush

NewsMax: "Pollster John Zogby: 'While Bush-- now at 48%-- had another good night continuing his upward trend, Kerry appears stuck at 44%. The good news for the President is that he has improved his performance among the small group of undecideds. "

I knew the 3rd debate damaged Kerry. I thought it was the ultra-liberal tag sticking, but the Mary Cheney business backfired on him too.

Paraplegic rips Edwards

Charles Krauthammer: "In my 25 years in Washington, I have never seen a more loathsome display of demagoguery. Hope is good. False hope is bad. Deliberately, for personal gain, raising false hope in the catastrophically afflicted is despicable." (via InstaPundit)

Even more despicable than registering dead and non-citizen voters, planning to invent phony cases of disenfranchisement in order to get court-ordered slective vote recounts as in Florida 2000, or vandalism and battery of Bush supporters and their property.

Can the moral mankruptcy of the Democrats be more complete?

3rd debate, translated out of the original tongues

Translating the Third Debate:

"And, of course, Kerry will heal the halt and the lame with them stem cells. Can’t forget that. Oh, and raising the dead. Vitally important that the dead be raised."

"Kerry: We gotta keep the current system. If we try to change it, the whole Ponzi scheme will collapse. No, reform wouldn’t be prudent. Besides, I have a record for fiscal responsibility.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

No, seriously, folks."

Haloscan commenting and trackback have been added to this blog.

Slight bump, begins taking on water

Just like the Titanic, I think there was fatal damage done to the Kerry campaign in tonight's debate, although it might not be evident immediately.

Bush tagged Kerry as an ultra-liberal. Mere name-calling in itself. However, the label was made to stick by Kerry's total inability to explain how he would pay for health care for all Americans without raising taxes on working families, and by Bush separating himself from Kerry on the question of activist judges, which Kerry was also silent on. All of Kerry's throwing out of facts, non-facts and statistics won't conceal the fact that he has been far from the mainstream since he left Vietnam and his record shows it. The jig is up.

Correction

In the last post I mentioned Democratic intimidation of the media but forgot to link. InstaPundit has it:

"Kerry Senior Advisor Chad Clanton to SINCLAIR Broadcasting: 'They better hope we don't win'"

Yes, Virginia, there are Brownshirts

NewsMax: Brownshirts on the March

"This kind of unrestrained thuggery is going on all across the nation, and the thugs are all supporters of [Democrats] - all of them acolytes of the Kerry/Edwards campaign, no matter how loudly the Democratic candidates disavow them."

I'm glad that people are starting to say it. Numerous reports from around the country of violent attacks on Bush-Cheney campaign offices (see also this), coupled with DNC attempts at censorship and intimidation of the media remind me of the depiction of Krystallnacht in the movie Inside the Third Reich, in which Albert Speer observes with puzzlement the abundant scenes of violence and accompanying media blackout.

More and more, it seems, Democratic activists are leaving behind civil debate and respect for the civil rights of others and resorting to intimidation and violence. I marvel at intelligent, decent coworkers whose hatred and fear of G.W. Bush is visceral and unreasoning. I think this country needs a remedial course on how democracy works, and why it is superior to dictatorships (however "enlightened") or mob rule.

Time for an ounce of prevention

Jonah Goldberg: Iran at the tipping point (via InstaPundit).

Sounds like the people of Iran would like to leave the Axis of Evil and rejoin the civilized world, and many of them are paying with their lives. What will the Western governments do? Offer platitudes and tut-tut until the mullahs have brutally reestablished control? Will they plan for war anyway because they don't believe the people have a chance, and so replace goodwill toward the West with a retrenchment of Iranian attitudes, thus helping the mullahs?

If we don't lift a finger to help the Iranian people now, future references to democracy, freedom and civil rights will rightly be dismissed as cynical, meaningless rhetoric. I actually doubt that current Western governments will mind, but do the people care?

Next up: credit for tying shoelaces

Fox News relates the next phase of dumbing down public schools: credit for lunch. Johnny can't spell "apple" but he knows why he should eat one.
