  • Left-wing politicians think voters are stupid - (in Europe and in the USA)

    06/20/2005 7:27:01 PM PDT · by CHARLITE · 6 replies · 234+ views
    Left-wing politicians think voters are stupid. Why do American voters reject big government candidates like John Kerry? Why do European voters reject more power for the socialist bureaucrats in Brussels? The answer, in both cases, is that they are stupid. Or at least that is what left-wingers are convincing themselves according to this article: "Whatever the rights and wrongs of the populist rejection of the EU treaty, the manner in which the 'No' campaign is disparaged by professional politicians betrays a powerful anti-democratic temper. It appears that professional politicians attempt to account for their isolation from the electorate by pointing...
  • The constant forward - (humorous one about how internet traffic from elections has lost its frenzy!)

    Has anyone noticed the degradation of political activism as reflected in the quality of e-mail forwards? During the election, when this country was in the grip of political passion, the internet hummed with outraged forwards explicating and excoriating the current snakepits and malevolence of public policy. Every citizen in possession of a computer (and that's every citizen! Some citizens have several, one in every color for every mood!) forwarded madly his or her opinions. These forwards, judging by volume and pitch, were not just opinions: they were expressions of the forwarder's innermost soul, as radical in their way as the...

    You’d think before liberals started passing judgment on their opponents, they’d at least pull out the old dictionary every once in a while. Instead, the party of ’tolerance,’ ’compassion,’ and ’inclusion’ continues to take childish potshots at President Bush. The latest “I know you are but what am I” Democrat is Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, who last week said the following in the Las Vegas Review—Journal about President Bush: “I think this guy is a loser...He’s driving this country into bankruptcy...He’s got us in this intractable war in Iraq where we now have about 1,600 American soldiers dead and...

    Duplicity is the name of the game for America’s liberals. It has been standard practice of the Democratic Party for decades to create a problem through poorly conceived and unrealistic legislation, decry and obstruct any attempts by Republicans to fix the problems the Democrats created as “racist,” sexist,” or any of the other myriad of “-ists” they concoct, and then when the problem is not solved, blame the Republicans for doing nothing about it. There is no “vast left wing conspiracy” orchestrating all of this deceit from behind the scenes. No secret bunker under Berkley’s city hall where Hillary Clinton,...

    It looks like Teresa Heinz Kerry is rubbing off on her husband. And on Sen. Hillary Clinton. For the Republican Party, this is a very good thing. You'll recall that last month, Mrs. Heinz Kerry put on her shiniest tinfoil hat and blamed the Democrats' loss in November on rigged voting machines. As reported in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Mrs. Heinz Kerry openly questioned the election results and fixated on areas of the country where optical scanners were used to record votes. "Two brothers own 80 percent of the machines used in the United States," Mrs. Heinz Kerry intoned, and it...
  • Free speech is threatened - (Bruce Kesler on McCain-Feingold, implications for internet sites)

    03/13/2005 8:32:07 PM PST · by CHARLITE · 19 replies · 755+ views
    Settled jurisprudence was fairly settled against prior restraints on free speech, except for "shouting fire in a crowded theater" immediate causes of grave harm. Then, along came the McCain-Feingold electoral reforms. McCain-Feingold's supposedly greater interest of restricting the role of big money in campaigns allowed legal and donor restrictions on campaigning. The media is exempt from restrictions. Critics of McCain-Feingold called it an incumbent protection act to reduce the resources of challengers. Realists said McCain-Feingold would result in contributions flowing some way anyway. Opponents of McCain-Feingold warned it restricted free speech, and this could increase. If free speech is surrendered...

    It seems Republicans have been taking their recent landslide victory for granted both too much and too little. After winning 19 senate seats and reclaiming the presidency by a whopping 3.5 million margin in the largest popular vote in history, Republicans are apparently losing sight of those particular aspects of their social agenda which specifically accounted for this monumental success. Worse: the Democrats have been taking notes. Ironically, after months of incessant weeping and gnashing of teeth, the left may have ultimately learned more from the sobering election results than the GOP even has - so much that they have...

    Something occurred to me as a result of leftover November buzz (what happened in November?) about the American youth, that much-hyped group who were meant to have blown this election (oh that) out of the water. One question? Why did this youth vote necessarily ally itself with the challenger – why did that word, “youth,” send shivers down the spine of the incumbent? Why did their slogan, “Vote or Die” necessarily attach itself to the sly “Vote for Change”? Well, so here’s what occurred to me – there’s a disconnect somewhere in this formula, and there is, more importantly and...

    Prior to September 11, 2001, Afghanistan’s repressive Taliban regime was known to most of the world only on account of a single controversy involving its decision to destroy two ancient Buddhist statues. Of course reaction to this incident was one of universal outrage, loudly condemned across the political spectrum as an abominable example of religious tyranny. Yet this desire by the Taliban to obliterate all religious symbolism with which it took umbrage has an ominous parallel within the borders of America in the systematic efforts by the ACLU and its ideological supporters to expunge every Christian expression from the public...

    The unbelievable news came in on late last week.

This is the man that has raised money but has been at the helm of the Democratic Party under the biggest string of losses in the Party's history. Therein lies the problem. Americans just don't understand what is good for them. Especially in those fast growing Red States in the South and West, Democrats discuss with other Democrats at...

    In 2000, 2002, and again in 2004, “we the people” saw to it that Washington (and the country) would be led by conservatives who represent the ideas and the will of the moral conservative majority in America. The old saying applies for my fellow conservatives, “lead…don’t follow, or get run over!” To the Democratic members of congress I say, most Americans are far more tolerant than those whom they tolerate. Don’t continue to mistake this tolerance as acceptance, or support for immoral un-American behaviors. Nobody is that tolerant, as you can see in your election results. Most Americans are not...

    As a Bush re-election later this year looks increasingly likely, some left-wingers worry that Howard Dean is too risky a candidate to put up against a popular President. There is, of course, the obvious comparison to McGovern and the fear that a true believer may inevitably be a sure loser. There is also the worry that Dean may not in fact be so true a believer in the first place: he did support Newt Gingrich's Medicare reforms, after all, and has been a little too cozy with gun rights advocates; might he not betray the Left in order to appeal...

California Senator Barabra Boxer (D) is set to object to the Ohio Electoral Votes, on what basis, nobody knows. But the result will be the futile delay of the confirmation process for Bush's 2nd term, returning the Senate to its chamber for a wasted debate on the subject. Meanwhile, other Democrats prepare their assault on Bush's appointment of Gonzales, intended to replace our nations retiring Attorney General, again, wasting taxpayer resources for partisan political purposes.

    Back before the November election, many mainstream media pundits - trying desperately to get John Kerry elected -- began to harp on President Bush's unwillingness to stop certain federal gun control laws from expiring as scheduled. But their propaganda efforts came to naught because this issue was a non-starter with the American people. The fact is, in this day of post-911 increased security consciousness, most average Americans simply don't want more gun control. They want more guns on hand to defend themselves and their loved ones in the face of possible life-threatening danger. Soccer moms are now taking handgun proficiency...

Or is it the amazing fact that Ms. Hilton, a rich woman, proved herself as classless as a background-dancer in a Madonna video? These are questions that deserve deeper thought. Actually they’re not. We don’t need to discuss Paris Hilton anymore. We never needed to discuss her in the first place....

    It may have all started with James Carville’s infamous political phrase, “It’s the economy, stupid.” The phrase was not intended to insult the American public. Certainly, they were not stupid. It was the sitting president that was stupid, of course. In his presidency, he had won a war in the Middle East, chased the Iraqi army out of Kuwait, and generally enjoyed overwhelming approval ratings until America began to focus on the economy…because they were told it was bad, bad, bad. Lets see, was it a recession…..or was it a depression? Whatever. Of course, the economy in 1992 was not...

John O'Neill enlisted to counter the smears of American servicemen in Vietnam. No one else spoke up for us, so we had to. The mainstream press was...

    US Treasury Secretary John Snow said all options remained open for a bipartisan panel that will examine potentially far-reaching reforms to the American tax code. "The president will ask the panel and ask me to give him the very best thinking across the board on how to produce broad-based reform of the tax system. So everything is on the table," Snow said. The panel, which President George W. Bush has yet to appoint, will make its recommendations as soon as possible in 2005, and proposals could go to lawmakers before the end of next year, Snow told the "Fox News...

Very few – perhaps only one – can credibly claim to have helped pull the hand brake on a presidential campaign. John O'Neill had his day on the national stage 33 years ago, but this year he emerged from the weeds of his comfortable anonymity because of a burning belief that John Kerry would make an awful commander in chief – and had to be stopped. Love him or hate him, Mr. O'Neill turned a presidential election on its ear. For his drive, vision and...

Still delusional about Bush's win, Democrats now claim that they have no idea how anyone could actually believe that Howard Dean and Hillary Clinton are liberals.

    My conservative friends continue to tell me that the liberals (who just lost the election) “just don’t get it.” That is, liberals “don’t get” the destructiveness of the American Civil Liberties Union’s relentless efforts to ban any allusion to Christianity and any mention of God in a country that is 96 percent Christian. They “don’t get” that the vote recounts in Ohio and elsewhere – which are costing taxpayers millions of dollars – are not, as they claim, to insure the sanctity of the voting process, but rather a colossal example of sour grapes at its worst.

    Following the Republican landslide victories of the 1994 midterm elections, conservatives watched in amazement as Republican “moderates” proceeded to completely squander the ground they had gained, culminating in the defeat of Bob Dole in ‘96. In the aftermath of this year’s elections, ominous signs point towards a repeat performance. Apparently, Republican Party operatives didn’t really comprehend why, in the middle of Bill Clinton’s first term, they won big. And to this day, political analysts still don’t seem to grasp the situation. Among conservatives, the conventional wisdom is that the newly realigned GOP Congressional majority had wrongly presumed too much of...

    Among the things that were brought to light during the recent Presidential campaign was what I would term the "unconscious message" that the Democrats sent to Americans. This unconscious message was a function of, primarily, two things: The impact of standard-bearers — including Michael Moore, Susan Sarandon, and Whoopi Goldberg, among many others — who, because of their high profile, came to represent what the Democrat Party stood for to many Americans; and some of the tactics which the Democrats allowed to be employed in the name of electing their candidate. Indeed, while many high-profile Democratic spokespeople might have gotten...

The New York Times reports that Bush's chief political adviser, Karl Rove, said that "opposition to gay marriage was one of the most powerful forces in American politics today and that politicians ignored it at their peril." That's fascinating, coming from a paper that crusades for homosexual marriage and runs "wedding" announcements of homosexual couples. Obviously, the media are ignoring this "powerful force" of opposition to homosexual marriage, and have done so for years. In all 11 states, Rove noted, anti-homosexual marriage amendments or...

    In the aftermath of the 2000 presidential election, liberals raged at the ''injustice'' of the Electoral College. Consequently, they demanded the standard ''ix,'' echoed every four years, of amending the Constitution to select the president by popular vote. But although conservatives breathed a sigh of relief in 2000, the delayed determination of Ohio’s vote this year, and its decisive role in President Bush’s reelection, predictably resulted in rumblings from the right that, indeed the Electoral College needs to be discarded. Once again however, the wisdom of the founders has been made evident, for those who are willing to recognize it....

I addressed these concerns in the second paragraph: Debate, protest and even conscientious objection to war are essential elements of our political system, which is why such activities are protected by our Constitution. Treason is taking up arms against our nation, or giving aid and comfort to our enemies. Sedition is actively encouraging acts of treason. Treasonous and seditious activities are illegal; they are not protected as free speech. I never expect liberals to debate me on what I actually said. These...

"It was when we in the news business had to hunt for the Dramamine because of the motion sickness," he recalls. One wonders what Engberg would say about Cleveland anchor Sharon Reed of WOIO, who decided to go naked for a story in a craven race for ratings during November's sweeps.

In most political situations, men such as Mr. Soros would be alienated by any political party. However, as he made these statements, he was introduced by none other than New York Senator and 2008 presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton.

Since 1994, the Republicans have controlled both houses of Congress. While the 2000 presidential election has been sited as the “closest” in history (it was not) and, on those grounds, liberals would have the country believe that we are “deeply divided,” the 2004 election brings into focus a movement in the country that has been going on for some time.

    "Hi. Are you nuts? "Forgive me for being so blunt, but your reaction to our reelection of President Bush has been so outrageous that I'm wondering if you have quite literally lost your minds. One of Britain's largest newspapers ran a headline asking "How Can 59 Million Americans Be So Dumb?", and commentators in France all seemed to use the same word - bizarre -- to explain the election's outcome to their readers. In Germany the editors of Die Tageszeitung responded to our vote by writing that "Bush belongs at a war tribunal - not in the White House." And...
  • Two Americas? Jonathon Edwards Had a Point

    Apparently Senator John Edwards had a close brush with the truth some months back, though like the proverbial ''broken clock'' that shows the correct time twice each day, he didn’t linger for long on the cusps of reality. According to Edwards, we live in a split society, which he described as the ''two Americas.'' Edwards attempted to portray this nation as being divided between the ''haves'' and the ''have nots,'' by which he delineated between those who are financially well-off, as opposed to others who struggle to make ends meet. However, another far more insidious divide exists across the nation,...
  • Kerry Knows What Sunk His Ship

    Despite my total disgust with the biased media, I had decided to move to another topic. That is, until today when I heard John Kerry discuss the reasons for his failure to win the presidency. I didn’t mind his excuse regarding his party’s failure to get out the vote, even though his people got him more votes than any other candidate, save President Bush, in the history of our nation. How’s that for gratitude? But rather, it was his comments regarding how FOX Cable News, Sinclair Broadcasting, and talk radio had done him in. This excuse was so pitifully lame...

    As one of my good friends so kindly reminded me, CBS’s decision to dump Dan Rather from his throne at the Evening News is too little, and it comes way too late! It’s not personal, I don’t even know Dan Rather. It isn’t even political, it’s much bigger than any individual politician or even any particular political party. It’s about something much more important than Dan, CBS’s ratings, a single election, or anyone’s individual political ideology. Partisans on all sides debate among other things, who has control of America. Some think it’s the federal government, others think it is...
  • Why Liberals STILL Don't Get It

    In the chic salons of Manhattan and the trendy bistros of Los Angeles they are saying they same thing. "How could Bush have won?" ponder the elitist vanguard of the left-wing status quo. "I don't know a single person who voted for him." On the networks -- 12 hours after the rest of us realized that John Kerry had fallen -- Dan Rather scribbles permutations on colored Post-It notes in an attempt to prove to himself that his chosen man could still take the day. Surfing about, I noted talking heads all agog over how they missed it. In the...

    The Osama bin Laden video tape was big news in the final days of the campaign, and this news event was spun by the media so as not to benefit Bush. A Washington Post story by Dana Priest and Walter Pincus said that bin Laden had "injected himself into the final days of the U.S. presidential campaign, warning that American voters will be held accountable for electing any president who seeks to destroy al Qaeda and persecutes Muslims." But near the end of the article, if you read that far, the authors cited evidence that bin Laden was on the...
  • Now Behold the Liberal Crack-up

    History takes time. To understand the historic decline of the Democratic Party I have found it useful to reach back to a book I wrote in 1984, The Liberal Crack-Up. It is a diagnosis of what was then the core philosophy of the Democratic Party, liberalism, and a prognosis of its future. Doctor Tyrrell was not optimistic, but history takes time. . . . . The conservatism of President George W. Bush, a conservatism that has been governing America for most of the past 24 years, remains to these liberals shocking, dangerous, or "extremist," as they say. The liberalism of...
  • Cruising with the Swells of National Review: Dick Morris on Why Bush Won

    Your humble correspondent continues to slave away somewhere in the Caribbean (actually, at this juncture I am sitting in my stateroom looking out at Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands). Normally, I prattle on about my own concerns, but the words of much wiser men and women have been poured into my ears like the many tropical rum drinks I have… well, I've been hearing a lot of great stuff that I want to share. Today I want to focus on Dick Morris. He has said so many interesting things that it will take more than one piece to...

    You all recognize my name from the dozens of postings I've made on Free Republic ~ articles that supported the reelection of George W. Bush (we won!) and also about the egregious bias of the leftwing media that did everything in its power to undermine a sitting president and try to manipulate the election of a known traitor to his country. Now I've teamed up with a number of noted activists and unbiased journalists to fight the Mainstream Media (MSM). The plan is to address their advertisers and promise to (1) completely refrain from watching the biased TV and radio...
