pro-islamofascist-terrorist radical chic
WHY JOHN KERRY IS DANGEROUS FOR AMERICA

by Mia T, 5.15.04

As long as you've got a rich man on your arm, you don't need a big bag.

--Elizabeth Rickard

 

The $100 billion Iraqi Oil for Food program was by far the largest relief operation in the history of the United Nations. By extension, it's rapidly becoming the U.N.'s largest-ever scandal....

Those included rewarding friends and allies world-wide with oil allocations on very favorable terms, as well as extracting large kickbacks from oil traders and suppliers of humanitarian goods....

There can be little doubt that U.N. mismanagement contributed greatly to the negative perception of the anti-Saddam containment policy. There is also little doubt that the reward and kickback scheme--as well the possibility of exposure--was a factor as some countries weighed whether to back U.S.-led regime change in Iraq. There is even reason to suspect that some of the Saddam friends and allies who benefited may have been members of the U.N. Secretariat.

eave it to the French to make pro-islamofascist-terrorist radical chic all the rage.

They and their moneygrubbing, Oil-for-Food defrauding cohorts abroad, and their power-hungry would-be terrorist sympathizers here, are all sporting "THE LOOK."

(How many of those oh so trendy Kerry-clinton-Kennedy hate-America-first sound bites will Al-Jazeera broadcast today?)

The trusty triad's half-truths, exaggerations and outright lies, confounded by fog of war, vagaries of peace and uncharted territory of asymmetric warfare, remind us that things are not always what they first seem. The UN Oil-for-Food scandal, for example, has shown us it was not "going to war with Iraq" that was "all about oil," but rather, "not going to war with Iraq." The Left, we now see, had that one,
(as they have most things), exactly backward.

The dernier cri of seditious and corrupt Leftists everywhere, pro-islamofascist-terrorist radical chic renders the Left, irrespective of policy, no less dangerous to Western civilization than the terrorists they seek to aid and abet.

The Cycle of Violence:
NOW WITH HYPERLINKED INSTRUCTION MANUAL

by Mia T, 5.14.04



by Mia T, 5.13.04

 

hen ceci connolley referred the other night (Special Report-Brit Hume, FoxNews) to the decapitation of Nick Berg by the islamofascist animals as "part of the cycle of violence," my hair stood up on end.

It was clear to me that Connolley, a leftist, was attempting to subtlely equate that unspeakable subhuman horror with the Dems' BushBash du jour, the so-called Iraqi-prisoner abuse.

(Equating the two explicitly would never sell, and besides, doing so wouldn't exactly be an image-enhancing move for Ms. Connolley, whose punditry has been certified never to breach the safely tautological.)

When I began to hear other lefties use the same term in precisely the same context, it became clear that "cycle of violence" was the Kerry-DNC response to the al-Qaeda slaughter.

By virtually ignoring the Nick Berg decapitation and instead continuing to foment the Iraqi-prisoner-"abuse" scandal, by attempting to draw a "cycle of violence" moral equivalency between the subhuman terrorists and a few infantile Americans, the left exposes its seditious, America-hating, power-hungry hand, its fundamental unfitness to serve... and a despicable brand of clinto-Kerryesque opportunism rooted in 60s-liberal cluelessness.

I can almost hear the whining. "We were on a roll with the Iraqi-prisoner "abuse." Why the [expletive] did al Qaeda have to one-up the Iraqi thing and kill our momentum?"

Video Shows Beheading of American in Iraq


BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) -- A video posted Tuesday on an al-Qaida-linked Web site showed the beheading an American civilian in Iraq in what was said to be revenge for abuse of Iraqi prisoners.

The video showed five men wearing headscarves and black ski masks, standing over a bound man in an orange jumpsuit - similar to a prisoner's uniform. The man identified himself as Nick Berg, a U.S. civilian whose body was found Saturday near a highway overpass in Baghdad.

"My name is Nick Berg, my father's name is Michael, my mother's name is Suzanne," the man said on the video. "I have a brother and sister, David and Sarah. I live in ... Philadelphia."

After reading a statement, the men were seen pulling the man to his side and putting a large knife to his neck. A scream sounded as the men cut his head off, shouting "Allahu akbar!" - "God is great!" They then held the head up to the camera.

The slaying recalled the kidnapping and videotaped beheading of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl in 2002 in Pakistan. Four Islamic militants have been convicted of kidnapping Pearl, but seven other suspects - including those who allegedly slit his throat - remain at large.

Thinking like an Islamist propagandist: A senator's guide to understanding

WorldNetDaily.com | Wednesday, May 12, 2004 | Hugh Hewitt

It has become apparent over the past few months that a high number of United States senators either do not understand how their words can be used against American soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines, or do not care that those words might be so used.

On the assumption that elected officials are not indifferent to the lives of the young men and women serving in uniform, let's try to think like an Islamist extremist, trying hard to encourage one or more of his younger charges to either participate in an attack against a heavily armored American position or to even become a suicide bomber.

A small number of rogue soldiers have handed you a tremendous propaganda gift in the photos of the abuse of Iraqi captives, especially those showing the humiliation of men by women.

But the American president has done a wise thing, appearing on Arab television and with the King of Jordan to denounce this outrage in the harshest terms. In fact, he may have even come close to turning the tide in some places by contrasting the American response to the abuse with the silence that shrouds far worse horrors in even the "moderate" Arab states. A clever man, Bush, though perhaps you suspect it is not cleverness but deep integrity that motivates the American president's condemnation.

Then Rumsfeld allows himself to be publicly hounded by partisan opponents, another stroke of genius in telegraphing to the Arab world what real democracy looks like. Again you sense the tide may have already turned on this issue, though of course who knows, but that the next batch of photos may allow you to fan the flames of hate for a brief time. But you despair that even the street is getting the picture that this is the very rare exception to the rule of American integrity.

But then you thank heaven for Sen. Carl Levin &endash; the senior Democrat on the Armed Services Committee who allows himself to speak on television, and your videotape machine captures it via the miracle of satellite television. What does this senior American political official confess to? Roll the tape for your young jihadists:

This is not just a few guards in some kind of aberrant conduct. This is a much more systemic problem here. And military intelligence, including I have to believe the CIA have got to be held accountable, right up the chain.

Play it a few more times. In fact, send a copy to the Arab networks in case they missed it, and then distribute it to the imams teaching the young. Play the Levin quote again and again. Assure that would be jihadists around the globe have many chances to hear an admission of guilt for the "systemic" torture and murder of innocent Muslims around the world at the hands of the CIA, for that is what a senior U.S. senator said. We have the proof. The prisoner scandal is not a story of a handful of criminals in uniform, it is the story of the entire American enterprise &endash; Sen. Carl Levin said so!

This is just one example of many from the past week, month and indeed year as partisan ambition has poisoned the minds of Democrats in the Senate. I can only imagine what the parents of servicemen from Michigan must think of their senior senator's smear of their sons and daughters, but give Carl Levin the credit he routinely takes for himself of being wise in the way of the military and nuanced in his thinking. He meant what he said, correct? He wouldn't lie and endanger Americans just for temporary political advantage, would he?

Carl Levin has not a shred of evidence that the prisoner abuse is evidence of systemic prisoner abuse. The accusation is slander of the worst sort, as shameful as Minnesota Democratic Sen. Mark Dayton's public descent into incoherence on Friday when he slandered Gen. Myers with the charge of "suppression" of the abuse story, and then rambled off into a bizarre rant about sending more tanks to Iraq, which would only engender more violence.

The Democratic Party has lost its way, saying the most outrageous things in hopes of scoring points, and doing so in a way that makes the charges ready-made propaganda for our enemies &endash; propaganda of the deadliest sort. If they have a shred of decency left, they will stop before they do more harm. Levin and Dayton cannot recall their harmful statements which will shame their careers forever, but at least they can stop adding more tape to the arsenal of poison already in the hands of our terrorist enemies.




 

 

America's Real Two-Front War

 
 
by Mia T, 4.17.04
 

 


(viewing movie requires Flash Player 6, available HERE)


johnkerryisdangerousforamerica.blogspot.com


merica's real two-front war: fundamentalist Islam on the right and a fundamentally seditious clintonoid neo-neoliberalism on the left, both anarchic, both messianically, lethally intolerant, both amorally perverse, both killing Americans, both placing America at grave risk, both quite insane.

If we are to prevail, the rules of engagement--on both fronts--must change.

Marquis of Queensberry niceties, multicultural hypersensitivity, unipolar-power guilt, hegemony aversion (which is self-sabotage in the extreme--we must capture what we conquer--oil is the terrorist's lifeblood)... and, most important, the mutual-protection racket in Washington--pre-9/11 anachronisms all--are luxuries we can no longer afford.

Notwithstanding, the underlying premise of our hyperfastidious polity, (that we must remain in the system to save the system) is fallacious at best and tantamount to Lady Liberty lifting herself up by her own bootstraps.

To borrow from the Bard, let's start metaphorically, or better yet, economically and politically, by killing all the seditious solicitors, which include the clintons and their left-wing agitprop-and-money-laundering machine: the Viacom-Simon & Schuster-60-Minutes vertical operation, the horizontal (as in "soporific") Cronkite-ite news readers, the (hardly upright) Ben-Veniste goons and Gorelick sleepers, and, of course, the clueless, cacophonic, disproportionately loud, left-coast Barbra-Streisand contingent.

America must not pull her punches.

To prevail, America must defeat--thoroughly destroy--the enemy. On both fronts.

This was an excellent presentation for all of us. Thanks. I hope you forwarded this to many sites. After all, the media would never allow this presentation. But, other conservative sites would. This might be good if you could send this on to some newpapers, mags, et al just to see if they would print this material. Instead of all the left wing propaganda we see each and every day. After all, this is better than the Rall junk. Why not give our side ,equal representation.

thx.

The media have lost their way.Thankfully, we, the people, are devising ways of bypassing them.

Whether we remain free reduces to the race between the left's attempt to control these new, unconventional venues, (witness the clintons' attempt to insinuate themselves into the google operation) and our ability to create and strengthen and expand them.

U.S. Oil Probe Has Seized 20,000 Files
By JOHN SOLOMON
Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The U.S.-backed investigation into alleged abuses of the United Nations' Oil for Food program in Iraq has already collected more than 20,000 files from Saddam Hussein's old regime and hired an American accounting firm to conduct the review...

Allegations of corruption first surfaced in the Iraqi newspaper Al-Mada, which published a list of about 270 former government officials, activists, journalists and U.N. officials from more than 46 countries suspected of profiting from Iraqi oil sales under the program, which was designed to provided humanitarian relief to Iraqis after the first Gulf War in 1991.

Viacom....G. Soros >>> major funding source of the neo-liberal elites who wish to revamp our nation into their view of the world. We are at war with this group, just as we are at war with Iraq, a funding source for terrorism, most especially the Pali families willing to sacrifice their own children for the equivalent of $25,000 a pop, directly sent via Saddam.

One war is to keep our constitution alive, the other is to protect our nation by changing the face of the extremist muslim doctrine that enslaves other corners of the world.

I remain in awe of your perceptions, your eerily dead-on graphic ability to capture what is going down with an in-your-face reality jolt that raises the passion to an nTh degree.

Kerry IS DANGEROUS, the Kerr-ennedy, klintonian Marxist inspired attack of laying your own motives upon your enemy is a corrupting device that has kept the 'right' spinning on the defense for WAY TOO LONG!

I am going to share this entire thread with my parents over some good drinks and discussion...your genius is showing girl....once again.

We are all focusing on the bought-off UN and government officials.

It will be enlightening to discover exactly which activists and journalists were bought off.

'90s America set the standard, btw...
The clintons made our national security a commodity...
Now world security is a commodity...

[T]oday's endless ovation for World War II vets doesn't change the fact that this nation has behaved boorishly, with colossal disrespect. If we cared about that war, the men who won it and the ideas it suggests, we would teach our children (at least) four topics:

The major battles of the war....

The bestiality of the Japanese. The Japanese army saw captive soldiers as cowards, lower than lice. If we forget this we dishonor the thousands who were tortured and murdered, and put ourselves in danger of believing the soul-corroding lie that all cultures are equally bad or good. Some Americans nowadays seem to think America's behavior during the war was worse than Japan's--we did intern many loyal Americans of Japanese descent. That was unforgivable--and unspeakably trivial compared to Japan's unique achievement, mass murder one atrocity at a time.

In "The Other Nuremberg," Arnold Brackman cites (for instance) "the case of Lucas Doctolero, crucified, nails driven through hands, feet and skull"; "the case of a blind woman who was dragged from her home November 17, 1943, stripped naked, and hanged"; "five Filipinos thrown into a latrine and buried alive." In the Japanese-occupied Philippines alone, at least 131,028 civilians and Allied prisoners of war were murdered. The Japanese committed crimes against Allied POWs and Asians that would be hard still, today, for a respectable newspaper even to describe. Mr. Brackman's 1987 book must be read by everyone who cares about World War II and its veterans, or the human race.

The attitude of American intellectuals. Before Pearl Harbor but long after the character of Hitlerism was clear--after the Nuremberg laws, the Kristallnacht pogrom, the establishment of Dachau and the Gestapo--American intellectuals tended to be dead set? against the U.S. joining Britain's war on Hitler.

Today's students learn (sometimes) about right-wing isolationists like Charles Lindbergh and the America Firsters. They are less likely to read documents like this, which appeared in Partisan Review (the U.S. intelligentsia's No. 1 favorite mag) in fall 1939, signed by John Dewey, William Carlos Williams, Meyer Schapiro and many more of the era's leading lights. "The last war showed only too clearly that we can have no faith in imperialist crusades to bring freedom to any people. Our entry into the war, under the slogan of 'Stop Hitler!' would actually result in the immediate introduction of totalitarianism over here. . . . The American masses can best help [the German people] by fighting at home to keep their own liberties." The intelligentsia acted on its convictions. "By one means or another," Diana Trilling later wrote of this period, "most of the intellectuals of our acquaintance evaded the draft."

Why rake up these Profiles in Disgrace? Because in the Iraq War era they have a painfully familiar ring.

The UN Oil-for-Food scandal, for example, has shown us it was not "going to war with Iraq" that was "all about oil," but rather, "not going to war with Iraq." The Left, we now see, had that one,
(as they have most things), exactly backward.

The dernier cri of seditious and corrupt Leftists everywhere, pro-islamofascist-terrorist radical chic renders the Left, irrespective of policy, no less dangerous to Western civilization than the terrorists they seek to aid and abet.

Did Kerry not go to papa Bergs house of pain? And some on FR find the Berg think very very weird and possibly a John Walker Lindh episode.
