THE CRIMINAL LEFTIST ELITE PARADISE Print E-mail
Written by Dagny D'Anconia   
Thursday, 23 August 2007

(In Part 1 of this series, The Many Ways to Bribe Politicians, it was shown how many ways politicians can be secretly bribed - especially when offshore operations are considered.  In part 2, The Dominican Connection, it was shown that FinCEN has not acted to shut down the Dominican Republic's money laundering operations - even though it is an egregious drug pathway and money launderer. We continue to connect the dots...)

The Dominican Republic provides a major path and organization for distribution of Colombian cocaine coming into the US.  Yet the Caribbean country was given a pass while other countries have been cleaned up.  What connections does the DR have?  Quite a bit it seems: 

Bill and Hillary Clinton have so many connections to the Dominican Republic that it is hard to know where to start.  From terrorist recipients of pardons, to real estate, to meetings with fellow leftists - the Dominican Republic has been their home away from home.

EURIPIDES’ RECIPE Print E-mail

Friday, 17 August 2007

Last month, Tom "Take ‘Em Out" Tancredo (R-CO) set off another political tsunami when he proclaimed on a talk radio show that if Moslem terrorists attacked America with nuclear weapons, we should respond in kind by wiping out Mecca.

Everyone from the terrorist accomplices at CAIR to the terrorist appeasers at State was suitably outraged.  Which was fine with Tom, for the whole purpose of his remark was to rattle their cages.  And to add a whiff of substance to the whispers about Project Ultimate Deterrence.

You learned about it almost three years ago (10/04) in Mad in Mecca  -- the possibility that there already is a W-80 warhead from a cruise missile secretly buried somewhere in Mecca and satellite signal-ready to detonate with enough plutonium to render Islam's holiest site uninhabitable for several thousand years.

This was further discussed (1/05) in George Bush and the Sword of Damocles:  Why There hasn't Been Another 9-11

Yet holding Mecca as a nuclear hostage is not the only strategy in Ultimate Deterrence.  There is another:  Project Jahannam.  You learned about it a little over a year ago (4/06) in No Moslems Go To Heaven, and again this spring (4/07) in Jahannam in Jolo.

Jahannam is Arabic for Islam's Hell.

It's all part of something called Euripides' Recipe.

HOW MERV GRIFFIN ENHANCED AND EXTENDED THE LIVES OF MILLIONS Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler   
Thursday, 16 August 2007

I first met Merv in 1977.  Intrigued by my book, The Adventurer's Guide which explained how regular folks could have great adventures around the world, he had me as a guest on The Merv Griffin Show

We hit it off so well that I ended up being a co-host for his shows featuring famous adventurers and explorers as guests, such as Thor Hyerdahl, Jacques Cousteau, and Lowell Thomas.

Whenever I got back from my latest adventure, living with cannibals in New Guinea, skydiving on the North Pole, taking elephants over the Alps, I'd get a call from Merv asking how soon could I be on the show.

One conversation with Merv, however, ended up affecting the lives of millions for the better, quite possibly yours.  Millions of people in America are alive today, will live longer, and are in better health because of this one conversation I had with Merv.  It wasn't on his show.  It was in a restaurant at the Riviera Hotel in Vegas.

BY WANTING AMERICA TO LOSE, DEMOCRATS WILL LOSE IN 2008 Print E-mail
Written by Tony Blankley   
Thursday, 16 August 2007

The Democrats, after spending the winter, spring and early summer frantically calling for getting out of Iraq as fast as their little feet can carry them, are now, as autumn approaches, demonstrating their Olympic-class back-pedaling skills.

By winter (with the complicity of the drive-by media) the Democrats hope to expunge the historic record of their failure of war nerve this spring. This is the moment for Republicans from the president, to the candidates for president, to the incumbents and challengers for offices all the way down to dog catcher (and especially dog catcher) to remind the public of the springtime Democrat Party defeatism and lost nerve.

The leadership of the Democrat Party has, by its public words this spring, disgraced themselves for a generation. Republicans have the right - and the duty - to engrave in the public mind the springtime Democrat perfidy and cowardice in the face of the enemy.

SLAUGHTERING INNOCENTS TO IMPRESS CONGRESS Print E-mail
Written by Ralph Peters   
Thursday, 16 August 2007

On Tuesday, August 14, Al Qaeda terrorists detonated four massive truck bombs in three Iraqi villages, killing at least 250 civilians (perhaps as many as 500) and wounding many more. The bombings were a sign of Al Qaeda's frustration, desperation and fear.

Al Qaeda has been badly battered. It's lost top leaders and thousands of cadres. Even more painful for the Islamists, they've lost ground among the people of Iraq, including former allies. Iraqis got a good taste of Al Qaeda. Now they're spitting it out.

Thus the purpose of these dramatic bombings is that Al Qaeda needs to portray Iraq as a continuing failure of U.S. policy. Those dead and maimed Iraqis were just props: The intended audience was Congress

The foreign terrorists slaughtering the innocent recognize that their only remaining hope of pulling off a come-from-way-behind win is to convince your senator and your congressman or -woman that it's politically expedient to hand a default victory to a defeated Al Qaeda.

WE ARE WINNING IN IRAQ – WHEN DO WE GET TO WIN IN IRAN? Print E-mail
Written by Michael Ledeen   
Friday, 17 August 2007

In reality - for what little it matters nowadays, either here or in the Middle East - we are winning the battle of Iraq. The percentage increase in Iranian activity, combined with a drop in the number of attacks, is another way of saying that al Qaeda is being destroyed for a second time, and the Iranians are scrambling to fill the void.

But they are on the run, just as is al Qaeda, as you can tell by the back-and-forth shuttling of their factotum Moqtadah al Sadr, between Iran and Iraq. If their scheme was working in Iraq, he'd sit still. He's scrambling because they're in trouble.

They're in trouble at home, too. Indeed, things are so bad that the government itself has open fissures, the latest caused by the resignation of the minister of industry and mines, and by the public testimony of the minister of welfare:

PROOF OF WARMING: IT’S ALMOST AS HOT AS THE 1930s Print E-mail
Written by Jack Kelly   
Thursday, 16 August 2007

It was a small change, made quietly two weeks ago on the website of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies.  But it could have big implications.

Al Gore claimed in his 2006 crockumentary "An Inconvenient Truth" that nine of the ten hottest years in history have been in the last decade, with 1998 the warmest year on record.

Not so, says the GISS, which is affiliated with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and Columbia University, and is headed by Dr. James Hansen, scientific godfather of global warming alarmism. 

According to the GISS, the hottest years ever in the U.S. were, in order: 1934, 1998, 1921, 2006, 1931, 1999, 1953, 1990, 1938 and 1939. 
Only one year in the last five (2006, 4th) is on this list, and only three in the last ten, compared to four in the 1930s.

PRIMARY INSANITY Print E-mail
Written by Jack Kelly   
Friday, 17 August 2007

America's democracy has always had its flaws, but it has long been considered the best. Our political "leaders" are changing that.

Those of you who have lives may not have noticed that our presidential nominating process, which in recent years has been teetering on the brink of insanity, has plunged into madness.

The Iowa caucuses traditionally have been held eight days before the New Hampshire primary.  If New Hampshire moves its primary to Jan. 8, and Iowa keeps the normal separation, then the Iowa caucuses would be held on New Year's Day.

Though caucus goers may make better choices when they're roaring drunk, and it would be delightful to make political reporters work that day, this is unlikely to happen.  New Hampshire is likely to opt for its first ever Saturday primary, so Iowa can hold its caucus during the election year, though barely after the college football bowl games have ended. 

But at this writing it is possible the voting for president in 2008 will begin in 2007.

HOW TO TALK WITH A LIBERAL Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Joel Wade   
Friday, 17 August 2007

During the French Revolution, the more radical Jacobin faction began sitting to the left of the president of the Assembly, the more conservative Girondins to his right. Thus began the usage of the terms "left" and "right" to describe one's political convictions.

The conservatives of that time included men such as Condorcet and Thomas Paine, men who supported the revolution wholeheartedly, but did not support the more radical and bloodthirsty actions of Jacobins such as Marat, Robespierre, and Danton, that would become the Reign of Terror.

The thinking of those on the right at the time was somewhat more akin to the that of the American Revolution, while those on the left could be seen as the precursors to the horrific show trials, purges and mass starvations of the future Communists and Nazis (who were socialists, despite efforts by the left to portray them as fascists, and to portray fascists as "right wing").

We now live in better times. But in the rants and hysteria of people on the left today we hear echoes of the Jacobin strain of long ago - for example the intolerance of any dissenting views as shown in the wish to bring back the "Fairness Doctrine" to stifle those pesky right wing voices on talk radio, and the labeling of those who question the gospel of global warming as "Deniers."

How do you talk with such people?

THE BOURNE ABSURDITY Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler   
Thursday, 09 August 2007

I took my sons, Brandon and Jackson, to see the latest episode of Matt Damon's film franchise, The Bourne Ultimatum.  Like its predecessors, The Bourne Identity and The Bourne Supremacy, it's great edge-of-the-seat entertainment and extremely well-directed, a first-rate example of action-genre film-making craft.

For anyone who knows anything about the CIA, it is also totally absurd.

You probably know the films' premise.  Damon plays Jason Bourne, a CIA assassin who has suffered amnesia due to a botched hit attempt.  His efforts to recover his identity and memories arouse the suspicion of CIA officials running illegal secret programs, who then send out a succession of assassins to eliminate him.

The term "CIA assassin," of course, will bring an instant guffaw of cynical laughter to those familiar with Langley.  Proof that such folks do not exist is that Hugo Chavez is not dead.

Movies love to portray CIA "assets" (as the Bourne films call them) as incredibly skilled and deadly, ruthless professional Terminators - whose mission is to hunt down either each other or innocent civilians, never actual bad guys and real enemies of the US.

Why can't Hollywood make a spy-action flick with at least a semblance of reality to it - say about a super-agent faced with world-class incompetence and collusion of CIA operatives in Pakistan, who end-runs them and goes for the villains within the Pakistani government who run both the Taliban terrorists and the heroin smuggling in Afghanistan?

That's what's really going on - the CIA led around with a Pak ring through its nose, rather than the movie image of hyper-efficiency and competence - and Hollywood is as clueless about it as Barack Hussein Obama Junior.

THE IMPORTANCE OF HELPING MEXICO Print E-mail
Written by Ralph Peters   
Friday, 10 August 2007

Imagine if our country were so ravaged by drug cartels that the president sent the military into a third of the states to break the terror.

That's where Mexico is today. We all pay the price.

Narcotraficante infighting took over 3,000 lives in Mexico last year as the Sinaloa and Gulf cartels struggled for turf. With government officials and police officers facing the old choice of "silver or lead," out-of-control corruption plagued the country.

Entire states fell under the influence of the drug lords. Narco-violence spread to previously safe regions, such as Monterrey - the most prosperous city between the Amazon and the Rio Grande. By late 2006, Mexico faced its gravest internal crisis since the Revolution of 1910.

In response, Mexicans elected a tough president, Felipe Calderon. And President Calderon took action, ordering the army into nine states and deploying troops to cities such as Tijuana and the run-down resort of Acapulco.

But the drug lords are fighting back. Today, the level of violence transcends mere crime. Mexico faces a narco-insurrection. And its government needs help.

THE LEFT’S ANTI-MILITARY DISHONESTY Print E-mail
Written by Jack Kelly   
Friday, 10 August 2007

What began as a controversy over the credibility of the New Republic's "Baghdad Diarist" is morphing into questions about the integrity of Franklin Foer, editor of the venerable liberal magazine.

The controversy began July 13 when the Diarist, a soldier in Iraq, wrote of three instances of shocking behavior.  The soldier has now been identified as Private Scott Thomas Beauchamp.  It is clear that he lied - either to Army investigators or to the magazine.

But why was the liberal magazine's editor so eager to believe his lies?

[Note by JW: Franklin Foer interviewed me at length for a story he was writing on the Reagan Doctrine in 2003.  The description and quotes of me are accurate, but the whole article turned out to be an anti-conservative screed.  The cover story, Founding Fakers, in the August 18, 2003 issue of The New Republic, demonstrates Foer's left-wing intellectual dishonesty.]

WORKER’S WOES IN IRAN Print E-mail
Written by Michael Ledeen   
Friday, 10 August 2007

Mansour Osanloo, who heads the Tehran bus workers' union, was thrown into the infamous Evin prison for the third time last month, after a highly successful European trip on which he tried to inform his Western trade-union brothers of the mounting repression against Iranian workers.

During his previous incarcerations, Osanloo had been brutally tortured. Films were distributed showing bruises on his body, and his tongue had been slit.

One of Osanloo's fellow union organizers, Mahmoud Salehi of the Saqez Bakery Workers' Association, has been jailed in the city of Sanandaj (Kurdistan Province), where he is said to be in serious medical difficulties.

The International Trade Union Confederation and the International Transport Workers' Federation have appropriately called for pickets, protests, and letter-writing campaigns demanding the release of these two brave men.

So far as I know, no labor union is planning to demonstrate for them in this country, and certainly the American government has not said a word on their behalf.
