November 1, 2002 --
That was some "memorial service" the Minnesota Democratic Party threw for the late Sen. Paul Wellstone the other night.
It started out dignified enough, with eulogies and poignant anecdotes.
But then it degenerated into a hysterical partisan pep rally in which speakers demanded that the GOP sit back and permit Wellstone's designated successor, former veep Walter Mondale, to take Tuesday's election by default.
This, after the Democrats - who'd called for a campaign moratorium until Wednesday - excoriated the Republicans for just raising the issue of campaign debates this weekend between Mondale and GOP candidate Norm Coleman.
Talk about hypocrisy!
It was, as former Rep. Vin Weber said, "a complete, total, absolute sham," adding that for Minnesota Democrats, "Wellstone's death, apparently, was just another campaign event."
No wonder even some Democratic officials are apologizing for an event they now concede went way over the top.
That the event was meant to be more than a simple memorial service was apparent when it was learned that labor unions were busing members to the rally, which was attended by some 20,000 people.
And forget about putting aside partisanship so that all those gathered - Republicans as well as Democrats - could share their sorrow at Wellstone's untimely death: When Republicans, like Sen. Trent Lott, appeared on the giant screens, the crowd erupted into jeers and catcalls.
Not to mention the fact that Wellstone's family publicly disinvited Vice President Dick Cheney - at least in part because of his strong public support of Coleman's candidacy.
Little wonder, then, that the most partisan of Democrats - Bill Clinton - was seen cheering the speakers on and pumping his fist in the air. He didn't bother wasting time with his trademark bite-the-lip sign of feigned grief.
Given that the event was broadcast live throughout Minnesota (and nationally on C-SPAN), it amounted to little more than a free, three-hour campaign commercial.
That Paul Wellstone himself would have loved it is beside the point; he was, after all, one of the most enthusiastically partisan members of the U.S. Senate.
The fact remains that, for all their protestations of outrage at the other side, behind their tears the Democrats were cynically engaged in politics as usual.
Here's hoping they pay a price for it at the polls Tuesday.
I know that every memorial service I have attended always has a concession stand open for business, adding to the solemnity of the occasion.
Mountaineer pointed out that in order to open a concession stand and have hot dogs, one must place orders with suppliers a day or two in advance.
Now, although they are trying to say things "got out of hand" and people got "carried away," the opening of the concession stands and the orders whicih must have been placed ahead of time belie this excuse.
In addition, Redleg Duke was on a commuter train seated near Bob Shrum and heard him working on Harkin's speech as he called different political big shots including Clinton.
They are, as usual, lying.
I fervently hope more comes out about the concession stands, and also what else was sold (beer and brats, campaign buttons, etc.).
IF certain campaign items were sold, several freepers have pointed out that they will have violated federal election law.
I'll bet half the 'rent-a-mob' folks didn't even know what they were there for. They were probably just told to bring money for lunch.
All people must do is remember that Bill Clinton and HIllary Clinton head an Organized crime syndicate which operates exactly as Organized Crime syndicates everywhere operate. The only difference is they are in politics....and through deceit and chicanery and murder they managed to keep control of the highest office in this nation. Had Vince Foster, Ron Brown, and a host of others not been murdered by the Clinton crime syndicate at fortuitous times, Bill Clinton would NOT have achieved or maintained his power. Had Senator Wellstone not been the recipient of another Clinton Crime Syndicate HIT - this last minute FREE THREE HOUR DEMOCRATIC PARTY BASH would not have been staged, Walter Mondale - father of one of Bill Clinton's tryst partners would not have been paid off for his acquiescence to his daughter's "involvement" with Bubba, and the humiliation of having one of the leading US Senate Liberals BEATEN in the Minnesota Senate election would not have been PREVENTED.
It is no accident, by the way, that Mineta managed to keep his job in the Bush administration.
(Oh - what harm can he do. Transportation secretary? so what)......
That the Wellstone children have evidently no suspicion that the people orchestrating this "rally" also orchestrated their father's death in order to STAGE this rally and ATTEMPT TO ENSURE HILLARY CLINTON'S POWER AS DICTATOR IN THE US SENATE is not surprising. The silence of the spouse and children and friends of Vince Foster and Ron Brown were bought too.
Everything, everything, everything is designed to keep her in POWER in the Senate which means the Senate majority must be maintained at all costs (including the murder of someone whose defeat would have helped ensure Hillary's LOSS of power as the Democrats lose control of the Senate).
We can only pray that evil has overplayed its hand again and the death party will be bringing its own demise upon itself and this latest Clinton Crime Syndicate Criminal endeavor will end differently than its others.
AMEN! May they pay the price all over the country.
First Annual Wellstone Memorial Midterm DNC Campaign Rally.
Nothing says mourning like a four dollar wiener.
This is verified by an interstellar communication I got from my friends on Beta E Ray in the Andromeda star system.
Don't forget. The Clintons have a history of this. What do you make of the Clinton body count?
"...But, if these so-called "progressives" feel content to entertain this conspiracy, then perhaps they should look inward, there are many presidential aspirants in the Democratic party, like Hillary Clinton, who will benefit greatly from the death of Wellstone."
But there ARE people who DO understand. I pray that some of those people might possibly be in the Bush administration.
Some do and do not care. Others do and are afraid of them. Others - the "masses" - do not know. They cannot imagine American "politicians" who commit murder - and get away with it (or so they think) - in order to achieve and maintain power.
Most Americans have never really studied Communism or Totalitarianism and have no idea the lengths to which those who lust for power will go to achieve that power. Most Americans are so long divorced from reality that they do not understand either the depths of depravity of man or the history of that depravity in the halls of "political" power in the world's history. America's uusually "nonviolent" political tradition is an anomaly. It is the manifestation and culmination of centuries of Judeo-Christian influence on Western Civilization. Many Americans think we are still under the domination of our Western Civilization foundations - and we are in many areas. But not in the hearts and minds of pure Marxist / Leninist / Stalinist totalitarians such as the Clintons. Hillary is the Stalinist. Bill is the Organized Crime Thug (as was his Uncle) with Communist leanings nourished in Moscow when our nation was at war with Communism! Perfect match. She has the "politics of meaning" - and he has the criminal mind. They both lust for power as no American politicians before them have EVER lusted. And, sadly, they have sold their souls for this power and they will reap the consequences. And of course many have died from their evil and many more will suffer and die because evil always has consequences...touches real people...brings real sorrow.
Only by God's grace!!!!! and mercy!!!! and, I imagine, the prayer and grit of many we don't know about - have those consequences been limited in scope...up to this point.
"When do you think Russian Communists finally realized in their hearts what Stalin really was?"
That is a very good question. I don't think the true communists CARED what Stalin was....as long as they were not touched. Today's communists certainly do not CARE what Stalin was. And they do not care what Hillary is. As long as they are not touched. But if we could just bring Vince Foster before us or Ron Brown before us or Mr. Carnahan before us or Paul Wellstone before us ------ and ask them if they care NOW about what Hillary and Bill Clinton (America's Stalinists) ARE --- I think we would get a different answer, don't you?
You know another person I wish we could bring before us to give a "testiomony" about the fact that Communists are, indeed, KILLERS - is Whitaker Chambers.
If there is anybody reading this who doubts the lengths to which the Clinton Communist Crime Syndicate will go / has gone to achieve and maintain power - they should read "Witness" by Whitaker Chambers.
They should also read another book: "Coming Out of the Ice".
They should probably also read about the Dixie Mafia and Bill Clinton's Uncle who headed that "nifty" Crime Syndicate. People may be infatuated with "The Sopranos" fiction. I am not particularly enthralled by people who regularly kill(ed) those who "pissed them off" or "got in their way" or "squealed" (told the truth) about their crimes.
As far as Stalin again - even today - he is admired in certain circles. His murder and enslavement of multiplied millions, as the Communist thug henchmen ruler of the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe means NOTHING to those who still think the communist ideal is "right".
The question I want to ask - to the skeptics - is this:
Why would it be impossible for an American "politician" who lusts for power to kill those who stand in his / her way to reaching their goals?
And, finally, if there existed a trail of death associated with the path ANY OTHER AMERICAN such as there exists associated with the path of Bill and HIllary Clinton, who could deny that ANY OTHER AMERICAN would become the target of serial murder investigations on the order of the recent sniper investigations????
Just forget that the Clintons are politicans and look at the trail of death and then decide: DOESN'T THIS TRAIL OF DEATH DESERVE THE SAME INVESTIGATION THAT WOULD OCCUR IF IT FOLLOWED ANY "ORDINARY" AMERICAN????
And, yes, Amen to your prayer for the wickedness that is in high places in this country. The highest.
Here is Psalm 94 again - there are so many that apply to our situation today:
1 O LORD , the God who avenges,
O God who avenges, shine forth.
2 Rise up, O Judge of the earth;
pay back to the proud what they deserve.
3 How long will the wicked, O LORD ,
how long will the wicked be jubilant?
4 They pour out arrogant words;
all the evildoers are full of boasting.
5 They crush your people, O LORD ;
they oppress your inheritance.
6 They slay the widow and the alien;
they murder the fatherless.
7 They say, "The LORD does not see;
the God of Jacob pays no heed."
8 Take heed, you senseless ones among the people;
you fools, when will you become wise?
9 Does he who implanted the ear not hear?
Does he who formed the eye not see?
10 Does he who disciplines nations not punish?
Does he who teaches man lack knowledge?
11 The LORD knows the thoughts of man;
he knows that they are futile.
12 Blessed is the man you discipline, O LORD ,
the man you teach from your law;
13 you grant him relief from days of trouble,
till a pit is dug for the wicked.
14 For the LORD will not reject his people;
he will never forsake his inheritance.
15 Judgment will again be founded on righteousness,
and all the upright in heart will follow it.
16 Who will rise up for me against the wicked?
Who will take a stand for me against evildoers?
17 Unless the LORD had given me help,
I would soon have dwelt in the silence of death.
18 When I said, "My foot is slipping,"
your love, O LORD , supported me.
19 When anxiety was great within me,
your consolation brought joy to my soul.
20 Can a corrupt throne be allied with you-
one that brings on misery by its decrees?
21 They band together against the righteous
and condemn the innocent to death.
22 But the LORD has become my fortress,
and my God the rock in whom I take refuge.
23 He will repay them for their sins
and destroy them for their wickedness;
the LORD our God will destroy them.
We can rest on the sure and certain promises of God.
It's not much, but at least it will be dignified, compared to that hootenanny they had on teevee last week.
If I can find a Shirley Temple wig, maybe I'll do my own special tribute to Wellstone's heartbroken son.
