BUSH BLUNDERS ARE HARD TO KEEP UP WITH

BUSH BLUNDERS ARE HARD TO KEEP UP WITH

 

 

By Pastor Chuck Baldwin

May 12, 2003

NewsWithViews.com

The foibles and follies of this administration are too numerous to count. With the exception of Monica Lewinsky, they rival anything in the previous administration. Of course, most neocons refuse to notice. Therefore, this column will also be ignored.

However, for those who are interested in the truth, here are some of the latest examples of Bush's blunders:

*Bush threw his support behind a liberal Republican who supports increased taxes, abortion and additional gun control to be a Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate. That man is Illinois Governor Jim Edgar. Thankfully, Edgar decided to not seek the nomination, but that didn't stop Bush from doing his best to send another liberal to Washington, D.C. Next, watch for Bush to do the same thing in California.

*Bush continues his support for the Clinton-Gore gun ban enacted back in 1994. Despite objections from gun groups, including the National Rifle Association, the President is determined to re-institute the so-called "assault weapons" ban that is scheduled to sunset next year. So much for Bush being "pro-gun."

*As Commander-In-Chief, President Bush has the authority to establish guidelines and policies for our nation's military. When Bill Clinton became President, he implemented the infamous "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy allowing homosexuals to serve in the U.S. armed forces. Bush has continued that policy. Clinton also introduced women to front-line combat roles. And true to form, Bush continues this reprehensible Clinton policy. In fact, one would be extremely hard-pressed to find any Clinton policy that Bush has reversed! I can't think of a single one.

*NAFTA and GATT came into existence early in the Clinton administration. Bush continues those polices and even wants to expand them. He has proposed expanding this agreement throughout the Americas and is now calling for a Mideast Free Trade agreement. Say good-bye to more American jobs; say hello to more foreign goods and to more foreign workers.

*Bush is determined to oversee the creation of a Palestinian state. After sending American soldiers to fight and die in an undeclared war against Iraq, Bush wants to create another such country by giving the P.L.O. radicals their own nation. Clinton wanted to do the same thing, of course, but was shouted down by conservatives. Today, those same conservatives sit mute and dumb as Bush sets about to finish what Clinton started.

*Speaking of finishing what Clinton started, Bush successfully created the Department of Homeland Security and the totalitarian-laced USA Patriot Act. There is an even more egregious version currently worming its way into law. All this was the brainchild of Bill Clinton, of course. However, he could not accomplish his pernicious plans because conservatives and Republicans would not support them. Now they do.

*Bush is likely to invoke Executive Privilege in order to continue the cover-up about what he and other top government leaders knew prior to the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Some thirty days prior to the attacks, Bush reportedly received a CIA Intelligence Report which warned, "The attack will be spectacular and designed to inflict mass casualties against U.S. facilities or interests. Attack preparations have been made. Attack will occur with little or no warning." More details are leaking out almost daily.

A Democratic Presidential contender, Senator Bob Graham of Florida, says Bush knows much more than he is telling and is demanding that the administration come clean about what really took place. Before that happens, however, Bush will claim Executive Privilege and the truth will be covered up once again.

BUSH BETRAYS PRO-LIFE CAUSE AGAIN, BACKS FEDERAL AID TO OVERSEAS ABORTION PROVIDERS

 

 

By Pastor Chuck Baldwin

May 1, 2003

NewsWithViews.com

Again and again, President G. W. Bush has betrayed the pro-life cause. The latest example is his push for $15 billion in U.S. tax dollars to be sent to Africa for A.I.D.S prevention.

According to British sources, "President George W. Bush dismissed a bid by conservative Christians to restrict his $15 billion foreign initiative to fight A.I.D.S. to only those programs that reject abortion and promote abstinence." In other words, Bush proposes to send federal dollars to those organizations that promote abortion and promiscuity.

The New York Times concurred with the British report by saying, "Ignoring objections from his conservative base, President Bush is to make a Rose Garden speech on Tuesday in support of a $15 billion bill to fight A.I.D.S. internationally that will direct some money to groups that promote abortion."

By choosing to fund pro-abortion groups, Bush is breaking his word to pro-lifers and is proving, once again, that he has no real convictions regarding the life issue.

Furthermore, Bush is a living, breathing example of the old adage, "The man who has a reputation of an early-riser can sleep 'till noon." Bush enjoys the reputation of a pro-life, pro-family president and, therefore, is able to repeatedly endorse pro-abortion and pro-homosexual proposals, and few people even notice.

Bush has done every bit as much to promote the homosexual agenda as Bill Clinton did, maybe more. He has done absolutely nothing of substance to promote the life issue. Just the opposite. He has routinely compromised and capitulated the life issue to the point that it is now laughable when anyone calls this president "pro-life."

Overall, the A.I.D.S. epidemic is behaviorally spread. It is mostly spread through promiscuous homosexual sex. Of course, it is also spread through promiscuous heterosexual sex and through germ- infected intravenous drug needles.

The vast percentage of A.I.D.S. victims are reaping the consequences of their own decadent lifestyles. Sadly, the fallout of this disease also impacts many children, hemophiliacs and others, who have become the innocent victims of other people's sins. No amount of tax dollars will solve that problem. Only a repentant heart and changed lifestyle will cure the escalating spread of A.I.D.S. And, by the way, this remedy requires no federal tax dollars!

Perhaps one day conservative Christians will wake up to the fact that Mr. Bush seldom represents them and will decide to put their combined support and influence behind a principled conservative who will be faithful to the immutable laws upon which this nation was founded. Perhaps.

And your alternative is???? Or is it just easier to bitch like the Rats do?

Reminds me of a saying that one of my old battalion commanders used frequently: "Don't come to me with problems, only come to me with solutions." Advice this "pastor" should learn, as well as yourself if you believe this crap.

No, I merely agreeing with the Pastor that Bush is doing what the Rats do and you supporting him is supporting what the Rats do. Bush has already made it clear he is going to continue the ban on "assault weapons" and everything else he said was true.

I wouldn't call this rubbish. That would be an insult to garbage everywhere. This screed isn't worthwhile to line a litter box - it would make even a cat sick from having to be near it while defacating.

I should have listened to Jospeh Farah's (World Net Daily CEO/founder) warning about voting for Bush. I'd vote for Alan Keyes or maybe swing to the Constitution Party.

You are basically no different than the PC crowd that Tammy Bruce rights about in the death of right and wrong. Bush is no where near conservative and he proves that continually. Here someone writes about Bush supporting Clinton’s ban on “assault weapons” and you attack the messenger.

How soon we forget the very difficult stand he took early in his term regarding stem cell research. He stood his ground as well as he possibly could.

The supposed support by the President is merely posturing in order to draw the Dims out into full view. They are already obliging him by putting together a totally unacceptable bill - for anyone but Stalin. This legislation will never get out of committee - much less off of the House floor - and the President knows this. By drawing out the Dims, the public gets another look at how extreme the Rats really are shortly before election time. This is a good thing. By taking the Rats propaganda at face value (hook, line and sinker), you are underestimating the President just as his enemies do. If the shoe fits, then wear it.

"Strategery" strikes again. Just like so many times already, the President is light years ahead of anyone who plays chess only one or two moves at a time. Stop being so simple, and think ahead. The whining, complaining, and doubting before the game even starts is a liberal trait. Your handle is ill-fitting.

Did you know the Department of Education was recommended by the head of the Communist Party USA in a book titled, “Moving Toward Soviet America?” It is unconstitutional. Bush teamed up with Ted Kennedy, who he let co-author the bill, so they could lavishly spend billions more on a department that could not be audited because of such horrible book keeping. You want to censor me or call pointing out what Bush does….mere rubbish?

Isn't this the nutball who wrote a (completely non-satirical, at least in intent) piece entitled "Is Bush the Antichrist?"

He's a crybaby whose basic message is "If I don't get 101% of everything I demand politically I will abandon you with venomous castigation, and I don't care what the political realities are, I don't care that my ideas may be unelectable in a particular locale, I'd rather be a purist whining from President Hillary's future gulag than sully myself by aligning or cooperating by any heathen infidel less-than-a-perfect-Christian-social-conservative."

The guy only knows how to fracture, moan, and lose.

No, a liberal lies and says Bush was AWOL. I built a site called, Lies About Bush, dedicated to exposing those lies. I criticize what Bush does, which is continue unconstitutional policies like the ban enacted by Bill Clinton. He is acting like a liberal and I am not going to sit by an support it.

Well said. The President and his staff in the Administration are the most media savvy since Reagan. They know how legislative battles will play out in the press and they finesse them to Bush's greatest advantage. Tom Delay can do the dirty work and Bush can come out smelling roses. A few cave-dwellers are going to get confused and think Bush is somehow abandoning conservatism...but most understand how the game is played.

These 1% people want 100% and can't accept an agenda that is 95% what the right wants. Clinton had about 10% of the issues that he agreed with in public that are right wing issues and the dems said it's politics. The right says Bush is a sell out for giving up less then 10% to the left to get the public on his side.

Remember this little fact: Who voted to gut the military under Clinton in Mass?

The Freekin GOP !

The pastor didn’t side with Graham - he took what Graham asked and there is nothing wrong with his question. We should know what Clinton and Bush knew. We have that right and we should have a government accountable to us. You ignore the Clinton era gun ban and other important features.

This is one area where I disagree wholeheartedly with the president. I would hate to integrate our economy into the thirdd world economies of Latin and South America.

The rest of the stuff is silly--if the author really believes the items he's listed are comparable to the criminal behavior that characterized the Clinton administration, he's got some kind of delusional disorder. We are a country of 350 million people with competing agendas. The President has to maneuver carefully through numerous political minefields daily. I think he's doing a great job.
