Speech Palin Would Have Given

I understand why Hillary did not want to go onstage with Sarah; she did not want to get upstaged by a mere Govenor. But why did the rally organizer’s cancel Palin? This girl is hitting some serious nerves.

The world must awake to the threat this man poses to all of us. Ahmadinejad denies that the Holocaust ever took place. He dreams of being an agent in a “Final Solution” — the elimination of the Jewish people. He has called Israel a “stinking corpse” that is “on its way to annihilation.” Such talk cannot be dismissed as the ravings of a madman — not when Iran just this summer tested long-range Shahab-3 missiles capable of striking Tel Aviv, not when the Iranian nuclear program is nearing completion, and not when Iran sponsors terrorists that threaten and kill innocent people around the world.

The Iranian government wants nuclear weapons. The International Atomic Energy Agency reports that Iran is running at least 3,800 centrifuges and that its uranium enrichment capacity is rapidly improving. According to news reports, U.S. intelligence agencies believe the Iranians may have enough nuclear material to produce a bomb within a year.

The world has condemned these activities. The United Nations Security Council has demanded that Iran suspend its illegal nuclear enrichment activities. It has levied three rounds of sanctions. How has Ahmadinejad responded? With the declaration that the “Iranian nation would not retreat one iota” from its nuclear program.

So, what should we do about this growing threat? First, we must succeed in Iraq. If we fail there, it will jeopardize the democracy the Iraqis have worked so hard to build, and empower the extremists in neighboring Iran. Iran has armed and trained terrorists who have killed our soldiers in Iraq, and it is Iran that would benefit from an American defeat in Iraq.

Hugh Hewitt has a look at this – and The New York Post has published the text of the remarks Palin was to have delivered.

Remembering 9/11

Today we pause to remember the tragic and senseless deaths of 2,996 souls, murdered in a blatant act of terrorism. Families, along with scores of others, gathered at the World Trade Center Memorial site, the Pentagon and in Pennsylvania to pay their respects.

It is a day worthy of our remembrance.

Winning Against Terrorists

George Bush

Ann Coulter wrote another of her blistering but humorous essays tweaking the noses of the Liberal Left. There wasn’t a major al-Qaida attack in 2003. Nor in 2004, 2005, 2006 or 2007. Liberals were flummoxed because they had set a standard of success that they expected Bush to fail. Grrrrr. The guns are winning. Bad guns. Very bad guns!

President Bush has correctly said, we have to be right 100 percent of the time.  However, the terrorists only have to be right one time. It is hard to believe, even for conservatives, that Bush has a perfect score for seven years. We have been so successful in fact that people have all but forgotten that the threat is real and dangerous. So they make jokes about the President and complain that we are fighting overseas.

Morose that there hasn’t been another terrorist attack on American soil for seven long years, liberals were ecstatic when Hurricane Gustav was headed toward New Orleans during the Republican National Convention last week. The networks gave the hurricane plenty of breaking-news coverage — but unfortunately it was Hurricane Katrina from 2005 they were covering.

On Keith Olbermann’s Aug. 29 show on MSNBC, Michael Moore said the possibility of a Category 3 hurricane hitting the United States “is proof that there is a God in heaven.” Olbermann responded: “A supremely good point.”

Actually, Olbermann said that a few minutes later to some other idiotic point Moore had made, but that’s how Moore would have edited the interview for one of his “documentaries,” so I will, too. I would only add that Michael Moore’s morbid obesity is proof that there is a Buddha.

I suggest you read the entire article. Especially the last two paragraphs. Bush 7, Terrorists 0.

Will Britain Survive Multiculturalism?

When former drug dealer and now born again Christian Paul Ray wrote in his blog that the Muslim drug gangs in his hometown of Luton were “savages,” he was arrested on suspicion of a hate crime.

“It’s ok for the Muslims to do what they’re doing, and no one arrests them, but then if we start saying and disagreeing with what’s actually happening, then we’re breaching community cohesion and we get arrested for it,” he explained.

Torture Lite

Let’s get some things straight. Nobody is a bad as the Nazi’s and Stalinist’s and “engaging in practices pretty close to torture” is not torture. One of the reasons America is politically debilitated is our propensity to use poetry rather than prose in our debates. We are more concerned with winning the argument than with stating the truth. You can thank postmodernism for this.
So, does torture work?

  • Newsweek boldly says, “No,” for the most part at least.
  • Slate grudgingly admits that “torture” has gained valuable knowledge that has stopped terrorist acts.
  • USA Today baits the reader with a headline on torture but shows some journalistic integrity by stating that most methods called torture are in fact legal interrogation techniques.

If torture is wrong, will someone please tell me why it is wrong. If we are merely the product of random biological and evolutionary processes then I say torture ’em. For that matter, kill them before they can kill us.

Torture is wrong because all men are made in God’s image. Torture is wrong because honoring God’s commands is more important than the threat terrorism presents to our lives. Torture is wrong because truth is TRUTH and we should not abandon it because the circumstances are harsh.

To the whining, namby, pamby ACLU liberals – either stop denying God and the Bible as the basis for law, morality and ethics or get out the electrodes and wire ’em up.

To the hawkish conservatives – being pro-life covers more than babies and you should read the rest of the Bible story.

Torture and the Geneva Convention

One view we might take would be to faithfully apply the Geneva Convention standards for the treatment of prisoners to countries that have committed to treat American prisoners by the Geneva standard. This would leave the terrorists ‘out in the cold’ so to speak.

Do Not Say that Islam is Violent

Has anyone actually read Pope Benedict’s recent speech? While the ancient reference to a 14th century Byzantine emperor was politically inept, it was part of a larger theme. More precisely, faith and reason are not only compatible but intertwined and that violence is not a good way to advance one’s spiritual convictions.

How do Muslims react? “Do not say that Islam is violent! If you say that Islam is violent, we will kill you and bomb the Vatican.

There is an intense media effort to defend true Islam as peaceful. There is an equally concentrated attempt to condemn Christianity for every injury or death possible in the last 2000 years. So, when Muslim terrorist’s kill a Nun it barely warrants 2 column inches on page 8.

How do moderate Muslims react? Do they condemn such violence? Do they call on terrorists to cease perverting true Islam and cease their activities? Do they point to their scriptures and demonstrate the peaceful nature of their teacher? To all these things NO.

The silence from the moderate Muslim community is quite loud. So who is pushing this “True Islam is peaceful” theme? The Americans.
