November 4, 2004 - All the sure signs for a Kerry victory were there. The New England Patriots won the Super Bowl. The Boston Red Sox exorcised the Curse of the Bambino. The Washington Redskins longtime predictors of presidential races lost last Sunday, which has always meant a loss for the incumbent. And to add to that trifecta, the stock market was skittish, surely a sign of an incumbents defeat at the polls. But
The bin Laden tape backfired, telling the American electorate that the arch-terrorist was rooting for a Kerry victory.
The dozens of anti-Bush books that were cranked out for the past three years are now gathering dust.
The Bush lied mantra will go down in history as the catchphrase that failed.
The Democratic National Committee and its rabble-rousing chieftain, Terry McAuliffe, are now officially retro.
The headline-grabbing efforts of Joseph Wilson, Richard Clarke and all the other anti-Bush writers failed miserably.
The pollsters are finished, with Zogby dead last.
The mainstream media are finished. As if we needed any more proof of their bias, the nonpartisan Project for Excellence in Journalism has now documented that during a two-week period, 59 percent of the stories about Bush (on CBS, ABC, NBC, PBS's "News Hour," CNN and Fox News) and in The Washington Post and the New York Times were negative, compared to only 25 negative stories about John Kerry. In the print media, 68 percent of the stories were negative on Bush, but only 26 percent were negative on Kerry. This only proves that the so-called intelligentsia on both the East and Left coasts arent so smart after all and that liberal anchors and pundits should now be looking to Al-Jazeera for work.
Dan Rather forgeries and all has been thoroughly discredited.
60 Minutes and 60 Minutes II and their most biased reporters special mention to Lesley Stahl here have sacrificed all credibility.
The Hollywood hucksters have gooey egg on their Botoxed faces.
The rap stars are singing a different tune (or whatever their followers define as a tune).
The trial lawyers lost their case.
The Boss Bruce Springsteen flopped miserably.
The European press is even deader than it was before its arrogant nose- prying into our election.
The stem-cell research crowd has proven that bogus claims dont fly with the American electorate.
The Abu Ghraib scandal was recognized by most Americans with a sense of historical perspective as an aberration and not in any way a commentary on the decency and sacrifice of our heroic fighting forces.
The brouhaha over the presidents Air National Guard service fell flat but will soon be replaced by legitimate questions about Kerrys less than honorable discharge from the Navy.
The American electorate was not convinced that a relationship with fair-weather friends like Germany and France both of which we know now were deeply involved, philosophically and financially, in the U.N.-Iraq Oil-for-Food scandal was a prerequisite for a sound foreign policy.
George Soros has proven that America-hating, socialist-loving moneybags cannot buy an American election.
The 9/11 Commissions efforts to place culpability for September 11, 2001, on the president went nowhere, as Americans recognized GWBs stellar leadership in the War on Terror.
Michael Moore has proven that anti-American propaganda films have no influence among critical-thinking Americans.
The attacks on Bush by the secretary-general of the corrupt U.N., Kofi Annan, and the last-minute efforts by the director of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Mohamed ElBaradei, to swing the election to Kerry by claiming that American fighting forces lost 1/1000th of the explosives at Al-Qaqaa information at least 18 months old was promptly contradicted by more credible experts than those at the New York Times, which gave the story front-page coverage.
The pre-election bombings in Madrid and subsequent election of a socialist president and his withdrawal of troops from Iraq had no influence on our election, in spite of the socialist on the American ticket and his left-wing backers.
The American-Arab community has set itself back by voting against the incumbent in huge numbers one estimate was by 93 percent. As Rabbi Schmuley Boteach has written: George Bush has liberated more Arabs and Muslims than any other man in human history. In Saddam he also removed from power the man who murdered more Arabs than any other, a figure numbering, according to The New York Times, at least 800,000 Arabs (not to mention 300,000 Kurds). After 9/11 Bush also defended the Islamic faith eloquently as a religion of peace, even while many Americans were feeling implacable hostility. With all this Arab-Americans still see Bush as their enemy, which makes you wonder whether the Arabs really know who their friends are.
The American-Jewish communitys votes, at this point, are unknown. But I suspect that Jews came out in record numbers for Bush because they were convinced that never again would they be lead by a demagogue. They recognized that the Clinton-intoxicated Kerry would not have cut off the terrorist thug Arafat as Bush did, not have supported Israels right to defend itself against ongoing terrorism with the fence, not have challenged the corrupt, anti-Semitic United Nations, and not have pressured Israel to cede both land and security to a global test.
The late-in-the-campaign release of the Duelfer Report which repeated ad nauseam Kerrys claim of no WMDs didnt fool the voting public into either (1) believing it or (2) doubting the presidents rationale for going to war against the terrorist regime of Saddam Hussein.
The voters of America didnt buy the preposterous accusations that the president was responsible for the shortage of flu vaccines, would restore the draft, or would dismantle the Social Security system (clearly, they liked his innovative ideas to reform and improve it!).
The American electorate, in record numbers, watched the debates and, in their votes, decided that they preferred an honest and decisive leader to a slick, golden-tongued waffler whose poor mother, on her deathbed, felt that she had to summon up advice to a son who had clearly never learned the value of integrity, integrity, integrity.
The voters, who turned out in record number, said in no uncertain terms that they didnt want the fate of their country in the hands of a do-nothing senator with an ignominious post-Vietnam War record or his weird choice for vice president, John Edwards, an even more do-nothing senator, with the dubious distinction of having helped raise medical costs by exacting indefensibly exorbitant malpractice awards for his clients.
And then theres the Lefts unending mantra about the evils of Halliburton, yet another canard that voters didnt buy, given that glib socialists like Kerry and Edwards utterly failed to reach the majority of Americans, who fervently believe in capitalism and free markets.
In times of war, the American public has always been wise in its choice of leaders, except for Vietnam, when a weak wartime president gave weak military leaders weak orders and so lost a war we should have won, no thanks to John Kerry, who betrayed his fellow soldiers and his country, as he did again during his one-and-only presidential campaign.
Americans sensed the truth about his weak and hollow man. They took heed of his 20-year Senate record of voting consistently against Americas defense and military and intelligence budgets. They detected the bias in the mainstream media that, in spite of their best and most dishonest efforts, could not camouflage their candidates fatal character flaws or the stinking whiff of a traitor.
And they ultimately voted for a man President George W. Bush by the largest popular vote in American history. A man who embodies the best of Americas values: belief in God, allegiance to country, devotion to family and most important at this crucial time in our history the vision to fight the very real war we are in, the war against terrorism that has already taken not only the 3,000 lives that were lost on September 11, 2001, but also the precious lives that were lost to the ravages of al-Qaida during the 1990s, when a narcissistic, ineffectual egomaniac was at our countrys helm.
Congratulations, America! You have done us proud! And congratulations, President Bush! Your decisive victory insures that Americans know and appreciate a good man and a strong leader when they see him. May God give you strength and health and good fortune in the years that lie ahead.

They didn't pay enough attention to Art Bell's friend, Sean David Morton. He remote viewed a Bush win. Go Sean!
Of course, Sean also predicted a 1998 nuclear exchange between India and Pakistan that would kill 50 million. We'll forget that one. Maybe that's why the RATS didn't pay attention to him. Too bad for them.
Thank God we don't have to listen to the Halliburton mantra over and over and over and over...
What percentage of Bush supporters have a high school education vs. years of college? I think this data might point out the innate intelligence of the population vs. the brainwashing that takes place in our educational system from kindergarten to post grad.
He also remote viewed another Hurricane for Florida...
Kerry is also taller than Bush and People also say he has better hair.... Americans are getting smarter... They are going by the issues not by the looks!
God Stuff ~ Bump!
Oops ~ Good Stuff ~ Bump!
Oops ~ Good Stuff ~ Bump!
...... and "it's Bush's fault"!
Barf Alert ..........where's Miss Cleo?
How's that "investigation" going into whom "outed" Joe Wilson's "spy" wife??? Haven't seen that lying loser on TV in a long time.
Was that Coordinate Remote Viewing? Controlled Remote Viewing? Associate Remote Viewing? The Ed Dames school of Remote Viewing or the Ingo Swan traditional method as established back in the 70's?
The Plame Blame Game...........what a joke.
