The Video Democrats Don’t Want You To See

It’s not only the video that Democrats in Washington don’t want you to see. Apparently it’s also the video that the mainstream media doesn’t want you to see either. Otherwise, you wouldn’t have to come here or on YouTube to see it.

Here’s a sign of progress on the Afghanistan front. The Taliban leader Mullah Omar is offering a safe exit if we would just go home. Even radical Islamists believe in ‘hail marys.’

‘Reconsider your wrong decision of wrong occupation, and seek a safe exit to withdraw your forces,’ said the message, which the Taliban said came from Omar.

Darn if this doesn’t take ‘big brother’ to a whole new level. Have to admit, the company has a good sales pitch to municipalities. Use our product and get more taxes.

A new high-tech aerial photography system that can spot an illegal porch from 5,000 feet is being marketed to tax assessors as a way to grow revenue.


A fire chief can look at the image of a house and the nearest fire hydrant and know exactly how much hose to run. A police chief can mark the distance between his sniper and a dangerous man with a gun, or map out where a car chase is headed.

Why Pointing Fingers Instead Of Investigations?

Speaker Nancy Pelosi went into the House vote today by shoring up, or so she thought, the finger pointing of Republicans and the Bush administration. It turned out to be a preamble to failure. Perhaps she knew that she didn’t have enough Democrats to vote for the bailout either because the bill could have passed without a single Republican vote. Remembering Enron, you can bet the ranch that if any Republican could be held responsible that there would already have been investigations launched. I’m not certain, but maybe someone is holding Henry Waxman hostage somewhere?

All her finger pointing is meant to be a distraction from who is really to blame for the economic meltdown. Her Party. Everyone agrees that it was the result of bad mortgages. But no one seems willing to find out how we got there. For Chris Dodd and Barney Frank, there is good reason that Democrats don’t want to look too deep into the problem. They’re hoping to skate from responsibility by blaming it all on Bush and, as Pelosi called it today, runaway and unregulated economic policies. And they hope to get Obama elected before the American people find out the extent of his participation in it. To look at Obama today, he is acting as if he was an innocent bystander while the problem just snuck up on us.

Fact is, Sen. Barack Obama played no small part in contributing to the problem. And his fellow Democrats not only contributed to the problem, they started it, they made it worse, and they fought Republicans against any attempt at regulation reforms that could have prevented the situation that we find ourselves in today.

Obama's Debate 'Words, Just Words'

During the first Presidential debate last Friday night, Sen. Barack Obama made two powerful points that seemed to make some points for him and against Sen. John McCain. One was his ‘me too’ response to what McCain said about a bracelet he wears from a fallen soldier. The other was that Dr. Henry Kissinger, a McCain adviser, supported his view that the U.S. president should meet with Iran’s president and other rogue dictators without preconditions.

His dance about Henry Kissinger’s advice was deceptive, if not simply indicative of a candidate loose with the facts. But don’t expect the mainstream media to set the record straight.

Here is a quote from Dr. Kissinger immediately after the debate about Obama’s remark.

‘Senator McCain is right. I would not recommend the next President of the United States engage in talks with Iran at the Presidential level. My views on this issue are entirely compatible with the views of my friend Senator John McCain. We do not agree on everything, but we do agree that any negotiations with Iran must be geared to reality.’

The bracelet issue is really not much of an issue, except for the fact that Obama was asked by the family not to bring up their son’s name or use it in speeches and debates. The father and mother, since divorced, have both confirmed that point.

All that can be said about it with any certitude now is that Obama showed the world how deep his commitment to that soldier was when he didn’t even know his name. And, that for a man wanting to be Commander in Chief, he can not be trusted to keep his word to the mother of a fallen soldier.

For the mother’s part, she is an Obama supporter. She is reported to have said that Obama’s mention of her son on Friday was appropriate because he was responding after Sen. John McCain said a soldier’s mother gave him a bracelet.

ACORN And Sen. Barack Obama's Economic Crisis

Before getting interested in politics, the mention of the word acorn conjured up images of squirrels for me. Now that ACORN is an acronym, Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, it conjures up images of socialist squirrels of the human kind. And front and center in ACORN is the Democrat(ic) party’s candidate for president, Sen. Barack Obama from Illinois.

Rather than have 100 percent of any recovery realized by reselling these mortgages going to either retiring the national debt or being returned to the people whose money they used (that would be you and I), or a combination of the two, the original bailout plan was to give 20 percent of it to ACORN. This was a major objection of the Republicans in the House. Which also explains to me, why they were kept out of the process.

Now that ACORN is front and center in the minds of those that are paying attention to the current financial crisis, we all need to know why, for Democrats, they are front and center in the proposed bailout, especially since they are instrumental in creating the problem in the first place.

What Caused The Economic Crisis?

Excellent video that traces the current economic crisis to its origin. Its real origin, as opposed to what Sen. Christopher Dodd (D-MA) says was the origin. There’s a good political (for him) reason he doesn’t go ALL the way back. The seed for this failure was planted by the peanut farmer and Nobel Peace Prize recipient, former President Jimmy Carter.

This video moves along at a pretty good clip, so if you want to get a look at some of the screenshots that are shown, have your mouse pointer ready on the pause button.

Thanks to Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) for distribution of this video.

Alcee Hastings (D-FL) Uses Race Card On Jewish Group

Are you beginning to see that the antics of the racist Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama’s pastor for over 20 years, is not so much of an isolated incident as Democrats would have you believe? On Wednesday, speaking to the National Jewish Democratic Council, a group that applied pressure to disinvite Gov. Palin from an anti-Iran rally in New York, the Democratic congressman said . . .

‘anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks.’

And he follows it up with this statement . . .

‘If Sarah Palin isn’t enough of a reason for you to get over whatever your problem is with Barack Obama, then you damn well had better pay attention.’

He will be criticized, of course, for his racist and bigoted comments. But it is obvious that what we are seeing is Hastings simply following the lead of his candidate who said to a democrat audience, without any substantiation, predicting that John McCain and his Republican allies will try to scare them.

“Nobody thinks that Bush and McCain have a real answer to the challenges we face. So what they’re going to try to do is make you scared of me,” Obama said. “You know, he’s not patriotic enough, he’s got a funny name, you know, he doesn’t look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills.”

Then there’s this quote which I heard him say, ‘And oh, did I mention, he’s Black?’ Do you think that the Obama campaign can win an election by using such despicable tactics? Apparently, they think that they can.

CAIR Challenges 'Obsession' To The FEC

Following up on a recent post entitled ‘Delivering Propaganda,’ a group called CAIR (more on them later) is asking the Federal Election Commission to investigate whether The Clarion Fund, a nonprofit group that distributed the documentary ‘Obsession, Radical Islam’s War Against The West,’ is a “front” for an Israel-based group with a stealth goal of helping Republican presidential candidate John McCain.

Don’t you just love conspiracy theories? Please check your tinfoil turban at the door, and, watch out for those black helicopters. They’re coming for you.

It is quite telling that this Muslim group thinks that making people aware of ‘radical Islam’ is a political statement that helps a particular political party. To which all I can say is, oh well, if the shoe fits, wear it.

CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper said . . .

If you heighten the hysteria over national security or terrorism or do anything to make people more fearful, it’s clear they would trend toward McCain because that’s been his mantra throughout the campaign.

All About Hillary?

By now you’ve heard about the big rally in New York protesting the appearance of Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at the United Nations. Sen. Hillary Clinton had been scheduled to speak at the rally months ago. But when she learned that Gov. Sarah Palin was also invited to speak, she pulled out. She made what should have been a bipartisan, and non-political show of solidarity against the Iranian dictator, political. It’s all about Hillary.

But that wasn’t the only reason Clinton would not attend. She didn’t want to be upstaged by, the growing in popularity, Sarah Palin. And she didn’t want to be there to hear Jewish voters yelling ‘Sarah, Sarah.’ It’s not just about Hillary. Maintaining the Jewish block vote was also at stake and Democrats saw the presence of Palin as a political threat to ‘their’ constituency. Aryeh Spero writes in Human Events . . .

This direct connection that Sarah Palin, a woman from and of the people, would have had with a Jewish audience was something the liberals had to stifle. It certainly could have made a difference in the election and perhaps have provided the impetus for the long awaited shift among many Jews from Democrat to Republican.

So why was Gov. Palin disinvited? Because of pressure from Democrat operatives who threatened the sponsoring non-profit Jewish organizations with investigations into their tax exempt status if Palin were to attend. How it is not a political event when Hillary is there, but is a political event if Palin were there is for the lawyers to figure out, but for Jonh Q. Public it makes no sense whatsoever. Assemblyman Dov Hikind, D-Brooklyn, told CBS 2 HD . . .

“This is insulting. This is embarrassing, especially to Gov. Palin, to me and I think it should be to every single New Yorker.” “It’s an absolute shame that this has happened,” Hikind said. “To threaten organizations … to threaten the Conference of Presidents that if you don’t withdraw the invitation to Gov. Palin we’re going to look into your tax exempt status … that’s McCarthyism.”

The organizers bowed to the pressure rather than risk their tax exempt status. (What was the name of Rev. Wright’s tax exempt church again? Trinity something?) Sen. John McCain said this . . .

Governor Palin was pleased to accept an invitation to address this rally and show her resolve on this grave national security issue, regrettably that invitation has since been withdrawn under pressure from Democratic partisans. We stand shoulder to shoulder with Republicans, Democrats and independents alike to oppose Ahmadinejad’s goal of a nuclear armed Iran. Senator Obama’s campaign had the opportunity to join us. Senator Obama chose politics rather than the national interest.”

Just an example of hardball politics, where the Democrat party and their run for the White House comes before standing up against probably the next biggest threat to the world. If there ever was a non-partisan issue to get behind, this would be it.

Delivering Propaganda?

When I saw the heading of William E. Jackson, Jr.’s column in Editor & Publisher, ‘Delivering Propaganda, As If It is Toothpaste,’ it got my attention. But to learn that it was the documentary ‘Obsession‘ that he was talking about, my next thought was, maybe he should have targeted the NYT and the MSM with a title like that, ‘Delivering Propaganda,’ instead of this documentary.

That documentary has a history to it that Mr. Jackson apparently is not aware of, or chose to ignore. Because of pressure from the CAIR crowd, it was pulled from a multi-faceted series on PBS about radical Islam and the War On Terror. It correctly shows radical Islam for what it is, what it does, and what it believes.

No movie distributor would carry it, probably out of fear. And no major TV network would air it. It was that powerful of a presentation. So now that it is literally given away, Jackson calls it propaganda. Newspapers isn’t the only distribution method for Obsession. They are also using direct mail.

His article illustrates why some think that the mainstream media serves as the marketing wing of the DNC, and in some cases, al-Qaeda.
