This Kerry remark, disgraceful as it is, was not an accident by a long shot.Â And the way he continues to stand behind that remark is proof enough that it was no accident.Â This is John Kerry, Vietnam veteran, jumping out in front of his potential competitors for the 2008 presidential election.Â This is good.Â The liberal left is right out there for everyone to see.Â Â Karl Rove couldn’t have done it better.Â John Kerry became Karl Rove’s October Surprise.
In Scooter Libby’s case, there was no crime until the investigation began. Special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald is standing by his prosecution of the ‘who leaked Valerie Plame Wilson’s name’ case by insisting that he needn’t have explain why no-one was charged for the leak, even now when everyone knows who the leaker is. It was Colin Powell’s State Dept deputy Richard Armitage who has publicly admitted as much.
What’s up with that?
One more statistic on the Muslim rioting in France. In addition to the more than 2500 police officers that have been injured in the first 6 months of 2006 . . .
In the first six months of 2006, some 21,000 cars were burned out and 2,882 attacks on police, fire and ambulance services were recorded.
French Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin’s solution is to “stiffen punishments for vandals after youths torched a bus in the southern city of Marseille, leaving a badly burnt woman fighting for her life.”
This north Philadelphia school was among the lowest performing in the city, qualifying for the No Child Left Behind program, three years in a row, beginning 2002.Â Now, they are among the best, winning a national award for their success.Â They don’t accept the soft bigotry of low expectations from their students nowadays.Â Their secret?Â “It’s all about challenging people to move to the next level,” Principal Barbara Adderly said.
The Iraqi court is scheduledÂ November 5 to deliver a verdictÂ for Saddam Hussein over the killing of 148 Shi’ite Muslims in the village of Dujail, two days before mid-term elections in this country.Â If he is found guilty, Saddam could go to the gallows.Â Â So why would the court change itsÂ agenda based on the mid-term elections in the United States?Â According to Mariam Karouny in Baghdad,Â “A guilty verdict could reflect positively on Bush as a vindication of his policy to overthrow Saddam in 2003.”Â I’d like to think that Saddam’s conviction would be no small victory for the people of Iraq.Â Â And being witnesses to how a functioning democratically-elected government of Iraq will administer justice, I just don’t see themÂ delaying theÂ announcement of the verdict one minute.Â
We have been hearing for years that Iraq is ‘Bush’s war,’ so I say to the victor goes the spoils.Â They can’t take credit forÂ prosecuting this war because they’ve been consumed with fighting to defeat Bush because of the war.Â I think I’ve said this before, but it bares repeating.Â If it’s good for Bush, it’s bad for the democrats.Â
AÂ guilty verdict would be a correct verdict.Â And it wouldn’t hurt Bush if it came down on Nov. 5.Â Although Bush isn’t running for anything, the democrats’ anthemÂ has been all anti-Iraq war, anti-war-on-terror, anti-Bush, all the time.Â
Regardless of when the verdict is announced, the American people already understand which party is tough on terror, and which party wants to confer constitutional rights to enemy combatants.Â That Saddam will be found guilty is, IMHO, a forgone conclusion.Â
We’ve seen how events external to an election can flip the outcome, as in Spain.Â So what kind of message does this send to the people of Iraq, trying to get things together over there, to find out that the other political party in the USÂ wants to get out of Iraq at any cost, and leave them to the terrorists and death squads, and rape rooms, and torture rooms?Â Â With friends like that, who needs enemies?Â It makes being an ally of the US a risky venture at best.Â Another message that is sent around the world.
It will be instructive to see the democrat leadership’s reaction to a guilty verdict, after years of defending him.Â It’ll go something like this,Â but you ‘haven’t got Osama yet, where’s Osama?’
BAGHDAD (Reuters) – A court trying Saddam Hussein for crimes against humanity could delay its verdict by a few days, the chief prosecutor said on Sunday, in a move that would shift the announcement until after U.S. midterm elections. Read onÂ
The media has never been accused of being either ethically or morally upright in the way they carry out, some might say abuse, their journalistic responsibility.Â Just look at the speculation, or rather the eager anticipation, that Newsweek and MSNBC exhibit in this article.
Responsibility is sacrificed in favor of enabling the enemy.Â In their view, enabling the enemy will also enable Democrats to get elected.Â Given the chance to do either, they will.Â And if they can do both, all the better.
Watch for Al Qaeda’s press release at a mainstream media outlet near you.
CNN, the network that admits withholding news unfavorable to Saddam, is another example.
Some have said, and democrats hope, that conservatives who have had it with Bush will stay home on election day.Â Ostensibly to punish Bush.Â I don’t buy into that theory.Â Conservatives are smarter than that and won’t commit political suicide.Â I think we learned a lessonÂ from the 1992 election.Â Democrats, on the other hand, just may have a stay-at-home problem of their own making that is taking on a racial component.
Democrat strategists and the New York Times talk about disillusionment of Black voters being up.Â A disillusionment of hearing year after year that an election lost isn’t an election lost, but rather an election stolen and manipulated.Â Their talking point worked so well, it seems, that they have convinced this voting block, apparently, that their vote doesn’t matter.Â Â
That’s a serious consequence for two reasons.Â First is that a voting block can beÂ manipulated to the point of believing our voting system is rigged, and second that a political party would seriously campaign on the stolen election sour grapes campaign instead of conceding a loss, no matter how close it was.Â But that’s where we are today.
France is on the verge. On the verge of losing their country or of standing up to ‘immigrants’ who are not there to assimilate into French society. They want to be French society. The pain will be minimized because they will promptly surrender.
But what do you call, if not a violent uprising, a stat like more than 2500 French police officers were injured by Muslims and Muslim gang activity so far in 2006. The police are asking for armored cars to go into some neighborhoods.
And this. . .
France’s huge Muslim minority community has come under the influence of agents often influenced and financed by Al Qaida. These agents have recruited Muslim youngsters for urban warfare in which police and government representatives are injured daily.
Similar invasions are on-going in other European countries. Will Europe morph into something else? Will the United States morph into something else? How? Or better yet, why?
“Marauding youths,” “protesters,” “immigrants”. . . Why not just call them that which distinguishes them from those who are not rioting? Muslims. Believe this, it is Muslims doing the rioting in Paris. From reading this Telegraph.co.uk article you’d never know it. Al-AP mentions the M’word in the fourth paragraph.
AP – Police deployed 4,000 reinforcements as marauding youths torched at least two public buses Friday, the anniversary of the deaths of two teenagers that ignited weeks of riots in largely immigrant housing projects across France.
