We Now Return to our Regularly Scheduled Program: The Crackup of the Democratic Party

Via Fox News:

WASHINGTON — President Bush is nominating Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court, The Associated Press has learned, choosing a long-time federal judge embraced by judicial conservatives to replace retiring Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.

Bio: A strong conservative voice in his 15 years on the Philadelphia-based 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which is considered to be among the most liberal. He has been dubbed "Scalito" or "Scalia-lite" by some lawyers because his judicial philosophy invites comparisons to that of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.

Sometimes Leaders Have to Follow

"Trust me" government asks that we concentrate our hopes and dreams on one man; that we trust him to do what's best for us. Well my view of government places trust not in one person or one Party, but in those values that transcend persons and parties. The trust is where it belongs -- in the people. The responsibility to live up to that trust is where it belongs, in their elected leaders. That kind of relationship, between the people and their elected leaders, is a special kind of compact.

Dan Riehl ponders the latest THOUGHTCRIME:
"Why is it hilarious, pretty terrific, amusing and fun to say White Men Can't Jump, but seriously, seriously inappropriate, offensive and racist to say African-American kids can run ...?"

Iranian President: "Israel should be wiped from the map."

Who are we to meddle in the affairs of the Middle East with a nuclear Iran?

Via The Financial Times of London:

Mahmoud Ahmadi-Nejad, Iran'’s fundamentalist president, on Wednesday declared that Israel should be "“wiped off the map"” and warned Arab countries against developing economic ties with Israel in response to its withdrawal from Gaza.

"Anybody who recognises Israel will burn in the fire of the Islamic nation's fury," he said, in remarks aimed at Arab states.

South Park Skewers Media Coverage of Katrina


"South Park," the popular Comedy Central show about the misadventures of a group of four Colorado boys, criticized the news media Wednesday night for its overhyped coverage of Hurricane Katrina. In the episode, two of the boys, Stan Marsh and Eric Cartman, accidentally crash a boat into a beaver dam, flooding an entire town. In the aftermath, local and national media blame it on global warming, ridiculously exaggerate the extent of the damage, make up stories of rape, murder, "cannibalism," and tell tales of "hundreds of millions" of deaths in a town of 8,000 people."

Air America on Their Financial Health: What's Wrong with this Picture?

A friend who writes under deep background as Flora McDonald points out one very telling paragraph in a statement from AAR CEO Danny Goldberg attesting to the network's solvency:
Air America is in strong financial shape. Last week we started broadcasting from our new multi-million dollar studios. Several weeks earlier the Board of Directors of Air America's parent company accelerated re-payment of a loan from the Gloria Wise Boys and Girls Club of $875,000 two years in advance of a previously agreed upon re-payment plan. studios vs. destroying a Boys and Girls club...hmmm...providing health insurance for your employees vs. simply taking the money for health insurance out of their paychecks...lying about finances and ratings vs. admitting failure and your "non-profit" status. What's a Liberal network to do..??

Read all of Goldberg's letter here. He claims Right-wing media is to blame for AAR's money troubles and points the finger at Conservatives for trying to "stifle debate."

Seems to me it's not the Right that is "stifling debate" on AAR. It's their ratings.

Too Predictable

The mainstream media is nothing if not predictable.

This image below is from the front page of today with the very words I predicted they would use yesterday. (see my piece entitled "Nation Braces for Overuse of the words "Grim Milestone")

A Grim Milestone // Military funeral service in Brooklyn, N.Y. (© Andrew Lichtenstein/Corbis)

The defeatist and contrived nature of marking 2000 dead misses the point entirely. Yes, 2000 brave men and women have died helping to defeat Saddam - precisely so the possibility of millions perishing won't ever happen again.

Too bad 2000 brave Europeans didn't make the same choice in 1935 to fight and possibly die in Germany.

The "grim milestones" from that war are counted in the millions.

The People's Cube helps scare away Liberal monsters with the ghosts of work, responsibility, Karl Rove, and most frightening of all....FOX NEWS!


Indictments Expected: Rove Possibly Misled Prosecutors by Possibly Speaking on the Possible Confidentiality of a Possibly Undercover Agent

Did Karl Rove jeopardize possible undercover status of the wife of Joe Wilson, the former Ambassador who possibly may have been authorized to travel to Niger to discuss the possibility that Saddam was possibly not a threat?

It would appear that if you're a Republican without an indictment, you're not working hard enough.


Nation Braces for Overuse of the Words "Grim Milestone"

As American military deaths in Iraq approach 2000, the country braces for countless manufactured media pseudo-events marking this "grim miletone."

For a glimpse of what could have been, check out the alternative: (originally posted last Aug)

The Mathematics of Appeasement
2.5 years into the Iraq War: 27 Thousand Killed
(American & Iraqi Armies + Iraqi Civilians)

2.5 years into World War II: 17.5 Million Killed

(55 Million Total 1937-1945 Comprised of sixty-one different nationalities)

What if British and American tanks had smashed into Germany in 1935 demolishing Hitler's nascent Third Reich. Does anyone doubt that today the Left would still be decrying this "Unprovoked War of Aggression against Germany?"

The State of Modern Thought

"Ours is an age where ethics have become obsolete: they are superseded by science, deleted by psychology, and dismissed as emotive by philosophy. They drown in compassion, evaporate into aesthetics, and retreat before relativism. The usual moral distinctions between good and bad are simply drowned in a maudlin emotion in which we feel more sympathy for the murderer than the murdered, the adulterer than the betrayed, and where we have actually come to believe that the true guilty party - the one who caused it all is somehow the victim and not the perpetrator of the crime."

Does Air America Still Have a Pulse?

From the Washington Post last week concerning an AAR affiliate that services one of the most Liberal radio markets in the country --> Washington, DC:
Air America, the liberal talk network carried on WWRC-AM (1260), went from bad to nonexistent. After WWRC recorded a mere fraction of a rating point in the spring with syndicated shows from the likes of lefty talkers Al Franken, Janeane Garofalo and Stephanie Miller, Arbitron couldn't detect a measurable listenership for the station this time around.

Use This in Your Attack Ads

Winner of iPod Shuffle Contest Quoted in WSJ

Jason from Generation Why is quoted in Wall Street Journal asking why more media outlets aren't talking about our first domestic suicide bombing.
Many of the bloggers who have commented on the case said they were made suspicious by the involvement of the FBI and the Joint Terrorism Task Force in the investigation, as well as by the authorities' swift dismissal of a terrorist connection. "It leads me to believe that there's some sort of concerted effort to keep this quiet as long as possible," says Jason Smith, a legal consultant outside Houston who blogs as Texas Rainmaker.

Clooney Wrong - McCarthy Right

George Clooney's Goodnight and Good Luck omits the fact that at least 349 Americans were actively spying for the Soviet Union.

Declassified documents from the Venona Project show that McCarthy was right about Communist infiltration in the American government. Now, Hollywood attempts to peddle their self-indulgent version of martyrdom yet again. This time from the perspective of Edward R. Murrow - patron saint of today's mainstream media.

Who is buying it? Not many anymore. This witch hunt version of history is quickly becoming fiction in the "Information Reformation" age:

The Washington Post rips Clooney:
"...many Soviet spies [were] embedded in the U.S. government at the time. That's not all Clooney leaves out in his account of the Murrow-McCarthy fight: He leaves out the Cold War, the hot war in Korea, the Venona decrypts that proved how sophisticated and exhaustive the Russian intelligence initiative against the American target was."

Slate rolls its eyes:
"The film covers the five-month period from late 1953 to early 1954 during which Murrow combated the McCarthy-inspired hysteria over communist subversives with a quartet of programs on his weekly CBS series See It Now. The Venona transcripts have shown definitively that American communists and Soviet sympathizers, such as Alger Hiss and Julius Rosenberg, did gather information for Moscow..."

And, of course, Conservatives laugh:
From Human Events: "If George Clooney’s Good Night, and Good Luck is the best shot the left can unload on Joe McCarthy these days, the famous Red hunter is well on his way to a thorough rehabilitation."

Read my take on McCarthy and Venona below (originally posted last July)

Senator Joe McCarthy and Roy Cohn

"The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he doesn't exist."
--Charles Baudelaire

Thanks to the Venona project, a secret FBI/NSA/CIA program that intercepted and deciphered Soviet diplomatic transmissions from 1937 until 1980, it is clear now that McCarthy was exactly right about Communists in the American government. In fact, he had underestimated the depth, scope, and severity of the breach.

Soviet cables now make clear that 349 Americans were in fact working for Stalin from 1939-1957. The most famous among those confirmed as spies were Alger Hiss (whose unfortunate code name was "LIBERAL") and Julius and Ethel Rosenberg. See below for a listing of identified Communists.

Although Venona became public in 1995, relatively little attention has been paid to it. Conservatives must champion this as the biggest "I told you so!" of the ages. If we don't, apparently no one else will. The lack of attention paid to Venona tells us as much about academic and media agenda today as it does during McCarthy's time.

Simply put - Joe McCarthy deserves a posthumous apology from the US Senate. Further, the Democratic Party should own up to its grim history of Soviet appeasement, collaboration with, and support for a regime responsible for the deaths of over 100 million people. Some estimates have the Soviet machine responsible for over 170 million deaths worldwide.

Had the Democrats and Hollywood Left rejected and exposed Communists in their midst, perhaps the Cold War could have ended decades earlier with millions of lives saved.

However, with so many pledging their loyalties to the Russian cult of State, Liberals chose instead to destroy McCarthy, write fiction portraying "victimhood", and sling counter charges that the only danger we faced as Americans was from reckless Republicans with the audacity to ask about their fraternization with the enemy. While millions were marched off to gulags to dig their own graves, American Liberals sobbed hysterically about being blacklisted by film studios or questioned about their actual support for actual Communists. {Keep in mind that Democrats during this time supported the internment of thousands of innocent Japanese citizens.}

I guess it should come to no surprise how little attention has been paid to Venona by major media, the Democratic party, universities, high schools, show business, popular culture, etc.. Kids today are still reading Hawthorne's Scarlet Letter and Arthur Miller's The Crucible as allegories for McCarthy's crusade. Ann Coulter does a great job detailing this dynamic in her book, Treason.

How does this happen? CNN's Harvey Klehr examines the Red Scare and sums up major media's thoughts on the Venona revelations thus:

"This new evidence is forcing the revision of many of the prevailing myths about the internal communist threat to American democracy in the postwar era. None of it exculpates McCarthy. He remains a political bully who hurt a number of people."

A bully who hurt people? This would be a fine assessment of things had McCarthy not been right. How does Klehr suggest one should react to those secretly sending Stalin sensitive information? Tickling them into submission? I'm sure Nazi collaborators were "hurt" too when they were outed. And, I'll bet that cockroaches don't like it when the light turns on in the basement either.

In another "circle the wagons" assessment, the late Democratic Senator Daniel Moynihan reviewed the impact of Venona in a book entitled Secrecy: The American Experience published in 1998. In typical Liberal fashion, he blames everyone but the spies themselves and his own party's complicit tolerance of them. Below he specifically blames the FBI four decades later for keeping the spy list secret:

"Not for another forty years would government tell what it actually knew about the Communist conspiracy: there had indeed been one, but it had never been massive; it has first been contained, then suppressed. A democracy does not leave its citizens uninformed on these matters."

Not been massive? If you don't think that 349 Soviet spies working inside all three branches of government qualifies as massive, then what does? It's well known today that publicizing the names would have tipped off the Soviets that we had broken their codes. Knowing the risks involved, the names of those spying were kept confidential at the personal request of General Omar Bradley.

Suppressed? How so, Senator? Not one victim can be produced from McCarthy's crusade. Or, would detailing the damage done by Democrats during this era be too much even for today's Democrats to explain away? It's simply easier to claim, "There was no threat."

Sound familiar?

I take heart in the fact that what happened to McCarthy won't happen again. With tens of thousands of bloggers coming online everyday we're part of an "Information Reformation" that is returning truth to its rightful owners. The OMSM (once mainstream media) can no longer operate as the Ministry of Information for the Left. If they won't apply scrutiny - bloggers will.

Thanks to this new dynamic, Liberals now have to back up their charges as well as their denials. The Dick Durbins of the world now have to explain what they mean as their speeches are heard. Their behavior is observed. Their hyperbole deflated and their support for our enemies is more evident than ever. It's apparent now that we can't trust media to act as the "watchdog of government" if they attack and destroy those who would otherwise protects us.

In light of Venona, words like treason, sedition, and traitor have new relevance. Despite what Liberals would have you believe, loyalty is a valid topic for debate. There is dissent and loyal opposition - then there are lies from the mouths of Ted Kennedy, Howard Dean, Dick Durbin and company designed to embolden our enemies, slander our good names, and create more dangerous conditions for our soldiers.

Most likely, McCarthy will remain a bogeyman for some time to come. Without his convenient ghost to conjure , the Left would actually have to answer to critics questioning their aiding and abetting of our enemies.

Although the names and times have changed, the players are no different today than in McCarthy's time. We're at war, with many among us (mostly on the Left) claiming there is no real danger but that posed by John Ashcroft, or Alberto Gonzales, or Karl Rove, or Halliburton, or Conservatives in general. Meanwhile, the media seem content to report solely on the operational efficiency of the enemy or how American soldiers are forcing terrorist inmates to listen to rap music.

So when Michael Moore states, "Somebody needs to just say this: there is no terrorist threat..." you might reconsider his motives and take a look at the list of American traitors who comprised "no threat" 50 years ago.

Mapes: Bloggers are to Blame --> Advantage Bloggers

60 Minutes producer Mary Mapes: "And I would have gotten away with it if it weren't for those meddling kids!"

Veteran producer Mapes explains in her new book how anyone could confuse a thirty year old document with one written in Microsoft Office and then whoops... run a story charging the President of desertion all within weeks of the election.

--"Faxing changes a document in so many ways, large and small, that analyzing a memo that had been faxed -- in some cases not once, but twice -- was virtually impossible. The faxing destroyed the subtle arcs and lines in the letters. The characters bled into each other. The details of how the typed characters failed to line up perfectly inside each word were lost."

--"To these people [bloggers], there was no such thing as unbiased mainstream reporting, certainly not when it came to criticism of the president, no matter how tepid. To them, there was Fox News and everything else -- and everything else was liberal and unfair."

I'd love to take credit for this as parody. But unfortunately, "Tricks of the Trade" is an actual pamphlet distributed to prostitutes in the city of Brotherly Love.

To the mayor's credit, he "blew a gasket when he learned city funds were used" to make a how-to manual complete with tips on what to wear, price lists, time limits, whether to be on top, etc...

This booklet covers it all. (Warning: link has explicit descriptions of sex acts) For instance, I learned that "it's never a good idea to let a stranger tie you up."
Hmmm... How can I subscribe to this valuable information?

I also learned that NYC has similar publications for crack, heroin, and hormones -- although, not on the public dime. Thank You, Mr. Giuliani.

An Editorial with Numbers

Mainstream Media Hastens Own Irrelevance

Via Newsbusters

"The Associated Press is up to its old tricks again. In its latest doom and gloom piece, “Poll: Groups Unhappy with Bush Performance,” they report that the president’s approval rating dropped to 39% in the most recent AP/Ipsos poll. Add to that today’s CBS poll that has the number at 37% and Bush supporters might have reason to squirm…except that they don’t.

As is usual, these anti-Bush organizations under-poll Republicans while over-polling Democrats. The AP survey contained only 40% Republicans versus 48% Democrats, while the CBS boys tilted the playing field an amazing 43% to 57% in favor of the Dems.

A further dig into the AP/Ipsos numbers reveals just who is being polled. Of the “average” folks interviewed, only 50% were employed full-time, 47% had a combined household income under $50,000 a year and most curiously, 20%--or double the national level--claimed no religious affiliation."

These must be the same "average folks" who attended the War Protests.

Rove Looking at Possible Jail Time for That Thing About the Lady Whose Husband Did Something then Told Everyone it was a Secret or Something

High profile case tests limits of something about people who talk about things that may or may not have happened and/or may have been secret or not secret at some time.

Bush Must Replace O'Connor with A Woman

Mr. President, these women are lawyers too.
(Re-Posting this piece from July to highlight how much this Conservative wants the fight. Looks like others at the National Review agree.)

Many are recommending President Bush replace Sandra Day O'Connor with a female to ensure a woman's point of view will be heard on the nation's highest court.

I couldn't agree more. That's why we're recommending Ann Coulter.

Why not? She is a lawyer with an impeccable Conservative pedigree. Let's face it. Anyone he sends before the Senate for confirmation will have to survive the coming filibuster and the Democratic character assassination squads. Why not nominate someone who can fight back?

Too Right-wing, you say? Okay, how about Laura Ingraham?

Laura is an attorney too who even worked for Justice Clarence Thomas for a while. While she is a "hair" (no pun intended) to the Left of Coulter, she could definitely hold her own against Ted Kennedy, Dick Durbin, John Kerry, and friends. Heck, she might even stand a chance against John McCain.

On second thought, while both have the credentials, perhaps neither has the wisdom that comes only with more age and experience. You can't put too high a value on wisdom. So, this leaves us with only one possible choice:

Phyllis Schlafly

No, really.
Phyllis Schlafly is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Washington University; she received her J.D. from Washington University Law School, and received her Master's in Political Science from Harvard University. She has testified before more than 50 Congressional and State Legislative committees on constitutional, national defense, and family issues.

This remarkable woman combines the leadership of Ronald Reagan with the determination and stately presence of Margaret Thatcher. Take a good look Mr. President.

It is impossible to know who the President will ultimately send up before the Senate at this point. However, if his nominee turns out to be a woman, she might consider bringing along some pepper mace in her pocketbook.
