The Netroots Meltdown Begins

By
September 28, 2006

via My Due Dilligence … lest anyone forget the site started with a stock scheme theme.

Lieberman is throwing the whole party under the bus. It’s time for 2008 candidates to step up.

Update: I think this is a major error on Lieberman’s part. He has run a pretty good general election campaign, casting himself as a bipartisan uniter and generally lying about his record. That has largely worked because it’s been the narrative in Connecticut for 18 years. Lieberman’s still holding on to a piece of the Democratic vote, which he’ll need to keep to win.

That’s in reaction to this interview courtesy of Pajamas Media today.

Lieberman – the former Democrat now running as an Independent to retain his Connecticut senate seat – was asked by PJM’s CEO Roger Simon if he could forgive once close friends Chris Dodd, Al Gore and Teddy Kennedy, for endorsing his opponent Ned Lamont, the former Democratic Party vice-presidential candidate responded: "I can forgive … but I probably won’t forget."

Given that, courtesy of Instapundit, Lieberman leads Lamont by ten points in the polls, which bus is it Lieberman is throwing the party under? The one they attempted to drive over his Senate career? A clue for the Netroots, once the Dem leaders and 2008 candidates read the writing on the wall, they are going to cut their losses and begin to make amends. That’s basically the message Lieberman is sending, as the story linked also reports that Lamont has lost momentum ten points back.

The Netroots had fun in a Democrat Primary, but the adults know Lieberman has to caucus with the Dems, or who knows what might be at risk after November. Get over it, dudes … the professional pols aren’t going to dish dirt at Lieberman, not when he’s holding a ten point lead over an empty suit who already overspent in an attempt to buy a Senate seat.

    I’d like to see Lieberman punish the Dems after the election with a few votes for Republican issues.

  2. Matt Stoller obviously doesnt know Roger L. Simon

    Honestly I dont know very much about Matt Stoller or his site MYDD. I have read it on a few occasions and usually find their points to come from somewhere out in left field let alone the left.

    Are Saddams Saddemocrats Behind The George Allen Lynching
    As Fox News would say: “We report, You Decide!”
    Let’s start off with George Allen critic, to say the least, Larry
    Sabato.
    First let us travel back in time to the Wednesday, October 23rd,
    2002 issue of a publication called THE CAVALIER DAILY
    when “Politicians, professors and students gather to celebrate Larry
    J. Sabato’s 50th birthday and raise money for the Center for
    Politics” Surely Mr.Sabato’s 50th birthday party must have been an
    unforgettable
    occasion for him. You can see a photo or Mr. Sabato being teased by
    Senator
    Allen at Sabato’s 50th birthday bash at

    Please pay particular attention to the following item in the article
    below in which Senator Warner is comparing the invitation to the
    50th birthday
    party for Larry Sabato to Marlon Brando’s “offer you can’t refuse”.
    Surely that
    line must have stuck with Larry Sabato.
    Larry Sabato must have remembered that line.
    “U.S. Senator John Warner, R-Va., compared the invitation to
    Marlon Brando’s “offer you can’t refuse.”
    In case you are not a fan of The Godfather, which starred Marlon
    Brando Senator Warner’s 2002 reference was to Marlon Brando’s
    character Don Vito Corleone,The Godfather,”Don Vito’s line, “I’m
    going to make him an offer he can’t refuse” was voted as the second
    most memorable line in cinema history in a 2005 poll”
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Godfather
    The reference is to a character being pressured by The Godfather to
    use a film star favored by The Godfather waking up to find the
    severed head of a horse in his bed.
    item immediately below is from the Wednesday, October 23rd,
    2002 issue of a publication called THE CAVALIER DAILY
    “Life
    Birthday Bashing
    Politicians, professors and students gather to celebrate Larry J.
    Sabato’s 50th birthday and raise money for the Center for Politics
    Katie Sullivan , Cavalier Daily Associate Editor
    A conversational hum filled the hotel lobby as men and women in
    business suits congregated in small groups.
    “Can I get two minutes when you’re done here?” one businessman said
    to another. Hearty greetings were exchanged while college students
    and interns searched for a chance to network.
    In a corner, a table holding platters of fruit and cheese stood near
    a cash bar where even beer was poured into wine glasses.
    Nearby, a long line waited to pick up their pre-printed nametags. An
    aide asked for the Virginia attorney general’s nametag, only to find
    that his nametag had not been printed.
    As Virginia Gov. Mark R. Warner slowly worked his way through the
    crowd, a server holding a xylophone wandered in the throng, striking
    random notes to encourage the group to move into the dining room.
    Clearly, these people could only have gathered for one reason—to
    celebrate Politics Prof. Larry J. Sabato’s 50th birthday.
    Virginia politicians, political analysts, journalists and University
    students and alumni gathered Monday night in the Richmond Marriot to
    wish Sabato a happy birthday.
    Rather than traditional cake and candles, however, a few prominent
    Virginia politicians humorously chose to light something else on
    fire—Sabato’s reputation.
    Warner said he accepted the invitation to speak for the opportunity
    to give Sabato some of his own medicine.
    “Larry’s been roasting all of us for years,” Warner said. “Turnabout
    is fair play.”
    The celebration, called the “Sabato Five-O,” took the form of a
    roast a la Comedy Central. The event also served as a fundraiser for
    The University of Virginia Center for Politics, of which Sabato
    serves as director.
    The Center for Politics, located on Old Ivy Road , uses various
    research and outreach programs to promote civic education and
    participation around Virginia .
    After the crowd made its way into the dining room, former Virginia
    Gov. L. Douglas Wilder introduced himself as emcee of the night’s
    festivities, and proceeded to introduce a video, much like those
    shown at bachelor parties.
    The video started out with photos of Sabato’s youth, then moved to
    doctored photographs including Sabato as Elvis and an onlooker in
    the fateful photograph of former President Clinton and Monica
    Lewinsky. The video then featured birthday wishes from some of the
    media’s most prominent political talk shows, such as Crossfire, The
    Capital Gang and The Beltway Boys.
    The Beltway Boys, Mort Kondracke and Fred Barnes, named Sabato as
    their favorite guest, even if “he doesn’t always know what he’s
    talking about. His greatest strength is that he’s always there.”
    University alumna and NBC Today Show anchor Katie Couric also taped
    a personal message, as well as fellow alumnus and FOX news anchor
    Brit Hume, who encouraged Sabato to “prevail in your long struggle
    against shyness.”
    The program then gave six of Virginia `s most powerful politicians
    the opportunity to poke fun at a man who, as he himself claimed, has
    predicted defeat for every one of them.
    Virginia Lt. Gov. Tim Kaine called the head table “the greatest
    group of Virginia politicians since Thomas Jefferson ate by
    himself.”
    Much was said about Sabato’s willingness to comply with the news
    media. AOL Editorial cartoonist Bob Gorrell showed the crowd a pie
    chart, claiming to cater to Sabato’s love of precise polling data.
    According to the chart, 60 percent of the audience were thrilled to
    be there, 30 percent were moderately pleased, and 10 percent were
    incredibly inconvenienced. He also called Sabato “the Pez dispenser
    of sound bytes.”
    Virginia Attorney General Jerry Kilgore spoke about Sabato’s ability
    to state the obvious and make it sound profound, then joked about
    Sabato’s abundance of media exposure.
    “He spends so much time in front of the camera lights,” Kilgore
    said, “that when he opens his fridge at night he speaks for three
    minutes.”
    Kilgore also mentioned Sabato’s record for predicting the outcomes
    of elections.
    “In ancient times, prophets who got it wrong were taken out and
    stoned,” he laughed.
    Several of the roasters mentioned a fear that if they turned down
    the invitation to speak, they later would receive some roasting of
    their own in Sabato’s political analysis.
    U.S. Senator George Allen, R-Va., cited a need to keep Sabato off
    their backs.
    “There are places we’d rather be,” Allen said. “But we didn’t want
    to cross the good professor.”
    U.S. Senator John Warner, R-Va., compared the invitation to Marlon
    Brando’s “offer you can’t refuse.”
    Several speakers also joked about the dinner’s fundraising function,
    calling it “extortion.”
    Warner claimed it was only the beginning of a series of fundraisers
    to support various state agencies, including ABC stores and the
    Virginia Museum .
    Allen mentioned budgets cuts facing the University as well, and,
    indicating Warner, said, “If he cuts your budget next year, Larry,
    put it in your file as something mean a Democrat did to you.”
    Allen, who attended the University as an undergraduate with Sabato,
    remembered Sabato’s beginnings as a student who wanted to fight the
    power of special interest groups.
    “Then I see this gathering,” Allen said. “You make Hillary Clinton
    look like a pike.”
    Other commentary centered on Sabato’s role as a professor.
    Warner, citing Sabato’s frequent role as a debate moderator, posed a
    question of his own to the man of the hour: “Larry, do you require
    students to buy your textbooks to line your own pockets, or because
    nobody else will?”
    The night did include some serious moments, with Warner promising
    the state would come through the budget crisis and that the actions
    of the sniper would not keep the state from “moving forward.”
    The dinner raised over $166,000 for the Center for Politics, which
    Sabato claimed was a third of the money needed to compensate for
    budget cuts.
    Sabato, always the academic, took advantage of the night as an
    educational opportunity. Two of his classes dined at sponsored
    tables, and each of his students met the roasting politicians and
    took pictures with them.
    Fourth-year College student Audrey Wagner, who is in Sabato’s
    Virginia Government and Politics class, said she valued the
    opportunity to see the figures discussed in class in person.
    “Mr. Sabato’s class is a class where you learn the kind of things
    you can’t learn from textbooks,” Wagner said. “It’s great to
    understand some of the inside jokes the politicians made this
    evening just because I’m in his class.”
    Sabato, who has been roasted before, said he enjoyed the event
    enormously.
    “I would walk over hot coals while barefoot to raise money for my
    beloved University,” he said.

    We have a million dollar question about Larry Sabato. From “AJR,
    American Journalism Review April/May 2005 issue The Quote
    Machines By Mark Francis Cohen
    Mark Francis Cohen, whose work has appeared in the Washington Post
    and the New York Times, is a contributing editor at Washingtonian
    magazine.
    Larry J. Sabato, who bills himself on the paid speaking circuit
    as “probably the most quoted college professor in the land,”
    recently donated $1 million to the University of Virginia .
    That sum of money—estimated to be 12 to 13 times the scholar’s
    annual salary—makes Sabato, 52, the most generous faculty member the
    university has ever employed. Actually, it’s one of the biggest
    gifts an active professor has handed to a school anywhere.
    So where did Sabato get all this cash? “Thank goodness for compound
    interest,” the mustachioed pundit told the Washington Post the day
    his gift was announced. “It’s amazing what you can live on eating
    Kraft Macaroni & Cheese for dinner.”
    “Still, a prudent lifestyle and savvy investment decisions hardly
    explain Sabato’s beneficence. The scholar has amassed mounds of
    extra cash writing 23 books and moonlighting as a public speaker.
    He’s a successful pundit whose words and face blanket the newspapers
    and airwaves, appearances that boost his profile and his cachet on
    the speaking circuit….it has become routine for individual editors,
    say on a national desk, to forbid reporters from using certain
    pundits as sources. Many editors interviewed for this article would
    only admit such prohibitions anonymously. “I have told my reporters
    not to use Larry Sabato anymore,” says the editor of a publication
    that covers Congress.”
    You decide: Where did Sabato get the million dollars? Why would “the
    editor of a publication that covers Congress” have told
    his “reporters not to use Larry Sabato anymore.” ?
    Dr. Shelton said Mr. Allen used the N-word only around white
    teammates.
    Dr. Shelton said the incident with the deer head occurred during
    their college days when he, Mr. Allen, and another teammate who has

    “Virginia Senator Denies Using `N Word’
    George Allen: Accusation By Ex-College Teammate `Absolutely False’
    “I don’t remember ever using that word and it is absolutely false
    that that was ever part of my vocabulary.”
    RICHMOND, Va., Sept. 25, 2006
    (AP) Sen. George Allen on Monday denounced as “ludicrously false”
    claims from a former college football teammate that he frequently
    used a racial slur to refer to black people.
    Dr. Ken Shelton, now a radiologist in Hendersonville , N.C. , also
    alleges that Allen, a former University of Virginia quarterback,
    once stuffed the severed head of a deer into a black household’s
    oversized mail box.
    In an Associated Press interview, Allen vehemently denied the
    allegations Shelton made in an article published in the online
    magazine Salon.com and an AP interview Sunday night.
    His campaign released statements from four other ex-teammates
    defending Allen and rejecting Shelton `s claims.
    “The story and his comments and assertions in there are completely
    false,” Allen said during an interview with AP reporters and
    editors. “I don’t remember ever using that word and it is absolutely
    false that that was ever part of my vocabulary.”
    Questions about racial insensitivity have dogged the Republican
    throughout his re-election bid against Democrat Jim Webb. His use of
    the word “macaca” in referring to a Webb campaign volunteer of
    Indian descent in August prompted an outcry. The word denotes a
    genus of monkeys and, in some cultures, is considered an ethnic
    slur.
    Shelton , a tight end and wide receiver for the Cavaliers in the
    early 1970s, said Allen used the N-word only around white teammates.
    During a deer hunt with Allen in the early 1970s, Shelton said,
    Allen asked whether black families lived in the area before stuffing
    a female deer’s head into the mail box of a black household.
    “George insisted on taking the severed head, and I was a little
    shocked by that,” Shelton said.
    “This was just after the movie `The Godfather’ came out with the
    severed horse’s head in the bed,” Shelton told the AP.
    Doug Jones, who said he roomed with Shelton at Virginia , said in a
    statement that he never saw or heard anything from Allen that
    supports Shelton `s claims.
    “I never heard George Allen use any racially disparaging word nor
    did I ever witness or hear about him acting in a racially
    insensitive manner,” Jones said.”
    Jim Webb, a.k.a. James Webb is Senator Allen’s opponent in the
    Virginia Senate
    race this year. Webb is an opponent of the liberation of Iraq. Webb
    is one of
    what we like to call Saddam’s Saddemocrats The following item on Jim
    Webb,
    a.k.a. James Webb. comes from his campaign website:

    research and medical education, as well as some other focus areas,
    in Buffalo, Toronto and Hendersonville. The Cummings Foundation
    previously funded Pardee’s Emergency Department expansion.
    The Perry N. Rudnick Donor Advised Fund of the Community Foundation
    of Henderson County has awarded a $25,000 grant toward the project.
    The Community Foundation of Henderson County supports charitable
    programs in the greater Henderson County area. It was founded in
    1983 and administers over 400 funds with assets of over $67 million.
    South Financial Group Foundation, formerly known as the Carolina
    First Foundation, has awarded a $5,000 grant toward the creation of

    life for the community.
    In addition to these three grants, more than $179,000 has been
    raised from the Pardee Hospital Auxiliary and other generous
    benefactors. Proceeds from the 11th Annual Tournament of Champions
    will also go toward the Center, contributing to a total of nearly
    $323,000 in funds raised for this project.

    that organization states:
    “The National Conference of Christians and Jews, changed its name in
    the 1990’s to better reflect its mission to build whole and
    inclusive communities. The historic name confused many, who
    believed that NCCJ was an interfaith organization. Therefore the
    new name is not a change in vision, but rather an affirmation of our
    abiding commitment to embrace the diversity of our nation.
    NCCJ is the only national human relations organization that focuses
    on a broad range of “isms,” the multiple manifestations of
    discrimination and oppression that are based on one’s religion,
    race, gender, sexual orientation, bias crimes to racial profiling –
    the challenges ahead are real. To confront and overcome them, NCCJ
    maintains an abiding commitment to work with decision-makers and
    leaders to support their work to build an inclusive society.”
    Now all of these things are of course worthy goals. Medical research
    is
    admirable, so is fighting the ills of tobacco, although Webb himself
    admits to
    being someone who has chewed tobacco for many years, and certainly
    fighting
    discrimination of any sort is a worthy goal. It is the interesting
    cross
    connections between the characters involved in the character
    assassination and
    overall lynching of Senator Allen that lead us to believe that there
    are just
    too many coincidences involved to be pure coincidence. However, to
    paraphrase
    Fox News once again, “We report, you decide!” What do you think of
    the so-called
    coincidences in this story? Are they more than mere coincidence?
    “Larry Sabato.. a classmate of Allen’s in the early 1970s, said in a
    televised interview Monday that Allen used the “n-word.”
    Earlier, Dr. Ken Shelton — a radiologist who played football with
    Allen at the University of Virginia in the early 1970s — said Allen
    not only used the slur frequently but also once stuffed a severed
    deer head into a black family’s mailbox…. Christopher LaCivita, an
    Allen strategist… said Allen and Sabato were not friends nor did
    they associate with each other in college. ” Sabato, director of the
    University of Virginia Center for Politics, would not say how he
    knew Allen used the slur. He told Chris Matthews on MSNBC that he
    did not know whether it was true that Allen used the word frequently.
    “I’m simply going to stay with what I know is the case, and the fact
    is he did use the n-word, whether he’s denying it or not,” Sabato
    said.
    However, Tuesday, Sabato acknowledged he has never directly heard
    Allen use the slur.

    UVA’s Larry Sabato had strong words about Sen. George Allen (R-VA)
    on “Hardball” last night:
    MSNBC’s Matthews: “What about these charges that he actually used
    the bad language that some of us are familiar with in this country—
    in fact, most Americans are—the bad language about people from
    another, other background—did he do it?”
    Sabato: “I can’t say how frequently he did it, but I don’t believe
    him when he denies never having done it.”
    More Sabato: “I’m simply going to say that I’m going to stay with
    what I know is the case. And the fact is that he did use the `N’
    word, whether he’s denying it now or not. He did use it. It was
    the `70s, you’re right, it was a harsh term, it was an obscenity at
    this as far as I’m concerned.”
    Matthews: “How do you know about the `N’ word? How do you know,
    Larry, about the `N’ word?”
    Sabato: “Because there is other evidence that I’m not going to go
    into on your show, Chris, sorry.”
    Asked if he heard Allen use the word: “I’m not going to go into any
    more details” (“Hardball,” MSNBC, 9/25).

    Rough translation of op-ed that appeared in Yediot Achronot – 12
    Adar:
    A band of Islamic terrorists kidnapped Daniel Pearl – a Wall Street
    Journal correspondent, a month ago, in Pakistan . His captors held
    him
    hostage, degraded him, hit him and tortured him. Afterwards, they
    slit his
    throat, chopped off his head and grossly mutilated his body. They
    documented their crimes on video. Daniel Pearls, last words, as they
    appear on the video are: “I am a Jew, my father and mother were
    Jews.”
    The decapitated head of Daniel Pearl, a son of two Israeli parents
    who
    emigrated from Israel to America , has still not been brought to a
    proper
    Jewish grave among the nation of Israel .
    Let us contemplate the significance of his last words that were
    uttered in
    the hateful faces of his murderers.
    “I am a Jew”, said Pearl , meaning I am the son of the nation and of
    the
    fate of the Jewish people. “I am a Jew”, meaning I am a link in the
    long
    chain of persecution, Exiles, pogroms and death camps. “I am a Jew”,
    meaning this is my own personal Holocaust.
    When Daniel Pearl said “I am a Jew” he died sanctifying G-d’s name.
    But Daniel Pearl also said, “My father and my mother are also
    Jews.” Meaning: In my last moments of life I proclaim that I am
    reconnecting to the fathers of my parents – to my Jewish ancestors.
    I am
    not only the proud son of this persecuted nation, I am the proud son
    of
    these survivors, this strong nation, who can never be defeated. My
    son,
    who is now in my wife’s womb, will be a Jew just like me. You can
    kill me
    but you can’t kill him. You can’t kill us.
    Daniel Pearl said “I am a Jew” as a prayer and as a message. Pearl
    wanted
    the whole world to know that he was butchered by his Muslim captors
    because he was a Jew, and not because he was a reporter or an
    American.
    Thus his words are a last will and request to Israel , the Jewish
    state.
    Gibson charged with drunken driving
    Misdemeanors carry maximum of six months in jail
    Thursday, August 3, 2006
    LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) — Mel Gibson was charged Wednesday
    with misdemeanor drunken driving, as well as driving with an
    elevated blood alcohol level and an open container of alcohol in his
    car, prosecutors said….During his arrest, Gibson asked the arresting
    deputy whether he was a Jew and said, “F—ing Jews. The Jews are
    responsible for all the wars in the world,” according to a sheriff’s
    report obtained by the entertainment Web site TMZ.com, which is
    owned by CNN.com parent company Time Warner.
    Mel Gibson Drives Drunk, Swears Uncontrollably, Hates Jewish People,
    Threatens Cops,
    Worried that Gibson might become violent, the deputy on the scene,
    James Mee, told the actor he would not be handcuffed as long as he
    cooperated. As the two stood next to the hood of the patrol car, the
    deputy asked Gibson to get inside, at which point Mel
    proclaimed “I’m not going to get in your car,” and bolted to his own
    vehicle. The deputy quickly subdued Gibson, cuffed him and put him
    inside the patrol car.
    The deputy taped the entire exchange between himself and Gibson,
    from the time of the traffic stop to the time Gibson was put in the
    patrol car, and that the tape fully corroborates the written report
    obtained by TMZ.
    It gets better/worse. Once inside the car, Gibson began banging
    against the seat.
    “You motherf–ker. I’m going to f–k you,” he yelled.
    The deputy, in the report, wrote that “Gibson almost continually
    [sic] threatened me saying he `owns Malibu ‘ and will spend all of
    his money to `get even’ with me.” The report also states that Gibson
    launched into a tirade of anti-Semitic statements, exclaiming “F–
    king Jews… The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world.”
    Gibson then asked the deputy if he is Jewish.
    The deputy became alarmed as Gibson’s tirade escalated, and called
    ahead for a sergeant to meet them when they arrived at the station.
    When they arrived, a sergeant began videotaping Gibson, who noticed
    the camera and then said, “What the f–k do you think you’re doing?”
    Gibson then allegedly saw a female sergeant and yelled, “What do you
    think you’re looking at, sugar tits?”
    TMZ has been told that Gibson took two blood alcohol tests, which
    were videotaped, and continued saying how “f–ked” he was and how he
    was going to “f–k” the deputy who arrested him. He was then put in a
    cell with handcuffs on. He said he needed to urinate, and tried
    manipulating his hands to unzip his pants. Afraid Gibson was going
    to urinate on the floor of the cell, the deputy asked someone to
    take Gibson to the bathroom.
    After leaving the bathroom, Gibson demanded to make a phone call,
    and was taken to a pay phone, where he began bashing the receiver
    against the phone when he didn’t hear a dial tone. Gibson was warned
    that if he damaged the phone he could be charged with felony
    vandalism. Gibson was then asked, and refused, to sign the necessary
    paperwork, and was thrown in a detox cell.
    Deputy Mee wrote an eight-page report detailing Mel Gibson’s rampage
    and comments. Sources say the sergeant on duty felt the written
    report was inflammatory, especially given the current situation in
    Israel . It was mentioned several times that Gibson had
    incited “anti-Jewish sentiment” and “For a drunk driving arrest, is
    this really worth all that?”
    Deputy Mee was then ordered to write a second report, leaving the
    comments about Jews out. Sources say he was told the sanitized
    report would end up in the media, and that he could file a
    supplemental report that contained the incendiary information, which
    would be locked in the commander’s safe.
    Initially, a Sheriff’s official told TMZ the arrest occurred without
    incident. On Friday night, spokesman Steve Whitmore told TMZ:
    “The L.A. County Sheriff’s Department investigation into the arrest
    of Mr. Gibson on suspicion of driving under the influence will be
    complete and will contain every factual piece of evidence. Nothing
    will be sanitized. There was absolutely no favoritism shown to this
    suspect or any other. When this file is presented to the Los Angeles
    County District Attorney, it will contain everything. Nothing will
    be left out.”

    by Liba Pearson I don’t know what kind of Jew Daniel
    Pearl was—if he went to synagogue regularly or thought about keeping
    kosher. And it just doesn’t matter.
    These days in Israel , I’ve noticed that cab drivers no longer only
    say “have a nice day” when you get out of the cab. Instead they
    say, “Have a quiet day.” By that, they mean: “Let’s hope no one dies
    today.” Because it seems that almost every day comes another horror—
    two teenagers blown up in a pizza shop, an old man bludgeoned to
    death in a soccer stadium just inside Palestinian territory, a
    mother and her developmentally disabled daughter shot in their home
    by a demon who will later be proclaimed a hero by people who live a
    half hour’s drive from me…
    Not every few months, or few weeks; the unthinkable is occurring so
    frequently that thought stops.
    With each headline, I pause and reflect… and it is too much and I
    close my eyes tightly. I try to comprehend how this happens, how can
    they do this…
    But I understand that I cannot understand.
    On Friday, shortly before I ran out for Shabbat, I saw that Daniel
    Pearl, the Wall Street Journal reporter, had been killed by his
    captors. I can’t say that I was surprised. But, still, I had a
    moment—longer even than usual—where I grieved.
    I read the obituaries: about his joviality, his love of music, his
    propensity for walking around the newsroom in bare feet. And the
    reports were now “releasing” the information that Daniel Pearl was
    Jewish. To us—to Jews—this came as no surprise. His name, his
    face… we already knew that. And as silly as it seemed that his
    captors might not know it themselves, I understood why his family
    had asked that it not be reported.
    It wasn’t until after Shabbat that I read what Daniel Pearl’s last
    words were:
    “I am a Jew. My mother is a Jew…”
    That was the last thing he uttered before one of his captors stepped
    up behind him and slit his throat.
    That was apparently the last thing he uttered before one his captors
    stepped up behind him and slit his throat. Then they beheaded him,
    and they videotaped the entire grisly spectacle. Those words—they
    beheaded him—must be said in a whisper. They don’t make sense, even
    to me—and I live in a place where children are killed for eating
    pizza.
    They beheaded him.
    Things like that don’t happen. The gruesomeness of it, the
    barbarism…
    But that’s not what stuck in my head.
    He was a Jew and his mother was a Jew.
    I don’t know what “kind” of Jew he was—if he went to synagogue
    regularly or thought about keeping kosher, if he considered himself
    a member of any of the particular “streams” of Judaism (maybe he was
    Refoconservadoxal) or not, or if his pretty wife is Jewish, or if he
    planned on giving the son she is carrying a bris.
    And it just doesn’t matter.
    This is something that the wicked men who killed him understand,
    sometimes, much better than we do. Whether he was right or left,
    whether he was completely assimilated or wildly and fervently
    observant—Daniel Pearl was just a Jew.
    As I sat reading eulogies, with tears brimming in my eyes,
    Mordechai’s admonition to Esther came into my head: “Do not imagine
    that you will be able to escape in the king’s palace any more than
    any other Jew.”
    Just like the old man beaten to death in a soccer field, like the
    teenagers eating pizza, the mother and daughter… They all
    committed the same crime: Being a Jew.
    I do not understand.
    This past Shabbat, we read Parshat Zachor, when the entire
    congregation repeats: “Remember what Amalek did to you on the way…”
    Amalek led his tribe in an attack on the Jews as they wearily made
    their way out of Egypt . His deeds were most dastardly: he attacked
    the Jews’ rear, where the old and sick and weakest were. Ironically,
    he was a grandson of Esau’s—and therefore not-so-distantly related
    to the Jews. And yet he attacked just after the miraculous splitting
    of the Red Sea : He feared neither the Jews nor God.
    Why did he do it? Our sages answer simply: because Amalek was evil.
    Not forgetting what Amalek did to us on means remembering that there
    is such a thing as simple wickedness, and remembering Amalek rebukes
    the notion that everyone is motivated by some sort of rational self-
    interest.
    Evil deserves only to be eradicated.
    Thousands of people were slaughtered as they sat in their offices in
    New York and there are those who say we must “understand” why those
    who perpetrated the deed did so.
    Evil cannot be simply explained by reason. Evil deserves not to be
    understood, twisted into some shape that we recognize as rational
    behavior: Evil deserves only to be eradicated. Our charge to
    remember Amalek confronts us with that.
    We so want to rationalize evil into something we can wrap our
    intellects around: We want to believe that Hitler had some sort of
    gruesome Jewish kindergarten teacher and acted out his frustrations
    on the whole Jewish people. Mordechai set off Haman’s dreadful
    inferiority complex. And maybe Amalek himself had appallingly low
    self-esteem?
    No.
    Nor can we any better understand the actions of the men who stepped
    in front of a video camera and murdered Danny Pearl.
    “I am a Jew. My mother is a Jew…”
    When he said that, they killed him. We know for what he was
    executed, what crime he committed.
    Parshat Zachor concludes: “It shall be that when God lets you rest
    from all your surrounding enemies in the land that God gave you as a
    heritage to bequeath, you are to erase the memory of Amalek from
    beneath the heaven. Do not forget.” And, just like the old man in
    the soccer field, and the mother and daughter, and the kids in the
    pizza shop, we must never forget what Amalek did to Danny Pearl.
    Marianne Pearl said that Danny Pearl’s spirit lives on.
    And after I am galled each time that I can go on with my day after
    the choking pause when I hear about the old man, or the mother and
    daughter, or the kids… or Danny Pearl, I know that going on, going
    downtown, refusing to be cowed by the fear the modern-day Amaleks
    spread, continuing to live life as a proud, committed Jew—that is
    the only victory I understand.

    This next item is excerpted from The Man in the High Castle by
    Philip K. Dick “The loudspeaker at the end of the aisle
    said “Achtung, meine Damen und Herren.” In his seat, Mr. Baynes
    started, opened his eyes. Through the window to his right he could
    see, far below, the brown and green of land, and then blue. The
    Pacific. The rocket, he realized, had begun its long slow descent.
    In German first, then Japanese, and at last English, the loudspeaker
    explained that no one was to smoke or to untie himself from his
    padded seat. The descent, it explained, would take eight minutes.
    The retro-jets started then, so suddenly and loudly, shaking the
    ship so violently, that a number of passengers gasped. Mr. Baynes
    smiled, and in the aisle seat across from him, another passenger, a
    younger man with close-cropped blond hair, also smiled.
    “Sie furchten dass—” the young man began, but Mr. Baynes saidat
    once, in English:
    “I’m sorry; I don’t speak German.” The young German gazed at
    himquestioningly, and so he saidthe same thing in German.
    “No German?” the young German said, amazed, in accented English.
    “I am Swedish,” Baynes said
    “You embarked at Tempelhof.”
    “Yes, I was in Germany on business. My business carries me to a
    number of countries.”
    Clearly, the young German could not believe that anyone in the
    modern world, anyone who had international business dealings and
    rode—could afford to ride—on the latest Lufthansa rocket, could or
    would not speak German. To Baynes he said, “What line are you in,
    mein Herr?”
    “Plastics. Polyesters. Resins. Ersatz—industrial uses. Do you see?
    No consumers’ commodities.”
    ” Sweden has a plastics industry?” Disbelief.
    “Yes, a very good one. If you will give me your name I will have a
    firm brochure mailed to you.” Mr. Baynes brought out his pen and pad.
    “Never mind. It would be wasted on me. I am an artist, not a
    commercial man. No offense. Possibly you have seen my work while on
    the Continent. Alex Lotze” He waited.
    “Afraid I do not care for modern art,” Mr. Baynes said”I like the
    old prewar cubists and abstractionists. I like a picture to mean
    something, not merely to represent the ideal.” He turned away.
    “But that’s the task of art,” Lotze said. “To advance the
    spirituality of man, over the sensual. Your abstract art represented
    a period of spiritual decadence, of spiritual chaos, due to the
    disintegration of society, the old plutocracy. The Jewish and
    capitalist millionaires, the international set that supported the
    decadent art. Those times are over; art has to—go on—it can’t stay
    still.”
    Baynes nodded, gazing out the window.
    “Have you been to the Pacific before?”Lotze asked.
    “Several times.”
    “Not I. There is an exhibition in San Francisco of my work, arranged
    by Dr. Goebbels’ office, with the Japanese authorities. A cultural
    exchange to promote understanding and goodwill. We must ease
    tensions between the East and West, don’t you think? We must have
    more communication, and art can do that.”
    Baynes nodded. Below, beyond the ring of fire from the rocket, the
    city of San Francisco and the Bay could now be seen.
    “Where does one eat in San Francisco ?” Lotze was saying. “I have
    reservations at the Palace Hotel, but my understanding is that one
    can find good food in the international section, such as the
    Chinatown .”
    “True,” Baynes said.
    “Are prices high in San Francisco ? I am out of pocket for this
    trip. The Ministry is very frugal.” Lotze laughed.
    “Depends on the exchange rate you can manage. I presume you’re
    carrying Reichsbank drafts. I suggest you go to the Bank of Tokyo on
    Samson Street and exchange there.”
    “Danke sehr,”Lotze said . “I would have done it at the hotel.”
    The rocket had almost reached the ground. Now Baynes could see the
    airfield itself, hangars, parking lots, the autobahn from the city,
    the houses. . . very lovely view, he thought. Mountains and water,
    and a few bits of fog drifting in at the Golden Gate .
    “What is that enormous structure below?” Lotze asked. “It is half-
    finished, open at one side. A spaceport? The Nipponese have no
    spacecraft, I thought.”
    With a smile, Baynes said, “That’s Golden Poppy Stadium. The
    baseball park.”
    Lotze laughed. “Yes, they love baseball. Incredible. They have begun
    work on that great structure for a pastime, an idle time-wasting
    sport—”
    Interrupting, Baynes said “It is finished. That’s its permanent
    shape. Open on one side. A new architectural design. They are very
    proud of it.”
    “It looks,” Lotze said, gazing down, “as if it was designed by a
    Jew.”
    Baynes regarded the man for a time. He felt, strongly for a moment,
    the unbalanced quality, the psychotic streak, in the German mind.
    Did Lotze actually mean what he said? Was it a truly spontaneous
    remark?
    “I hope we will see one another later on in San Francisco ,” Lotze
    said, as the rocket touched the ground. “I will be at loose ends
    without a countryman to talk to.”
    “I’m not a countryman of yours,” Baynes said.
    “Oh, yes; that’s so. But racially, you’re quite close. For all
    intents and purposes the same.” Lotze began to stir around in his
    seat, getting ready to unfasten the elaborate belts.
    Am I racially kin to this man? Baynes wondered. So closely so that
    for all intents and purposes it is the same? Then it is in me, too,
    the psychotic streak. A psychotic world we live in. The madmen are
    in power. How long have we known this? Faced this? And—how many of
    us do know it? Not Lotze. Perhaps if you know you are insane then
    you are not insane. Or you are becoming sane, finally. Waking up. I
    suppose only a few are aware of all this. Isolated persons here and
    there. But the broad masses. . . what do they think? All these
    hundreds of thousands in this city, here. Do they imagine that they
    live in a sane world? Or do they guess, glimpse, the truth. . . ?
    But, he thought, what does it mean, insane? A legal definition. What
    do I mean? I feel it, see it, but what is it?
    He thought, It is something they do, something they are. It is—their
    unconsciousness. Their lack of knowledge about others. Their not
    being aware of what they do to others, the destruction they have
    caused and are causing. No, he thought. That isn’t it, I don’t know;
    I sense it, intuit it. But—they are purposely cruel . . . is that
    it? No. God, he thought. I can’t find it, make it clear. Do they
    ignore parts of reality? Yes. But it is more. It is their plans.
    Yes, their plans. The conquering of the planets. Something frenzied
    and demented, as was their conquering of Africa, and before that,
    Europe and Asia .
    Their view; it is cosmic. Not of a man here, a child there, but air
    abstraction: race, land. Volk. Land. Blut. Ehre. Not of honorable
    men but of Ehre itself, honor; the abstract is real, the actual is
    invisible to them. Die Güte, but not good men, this good man. It is
    their sense of space and time. They see through the here, the now,
    into the vast black deep beyond, the unchanging. And that is fatal
    to life. Because eventually there will be no life; there was once
    only the dust particles in space, the hot hydrogen gases, nothing
    more, and it will come again. This is an interval, ein Augenblick.
    The cosmic process is hurrying on, crushing life back into the
    granite and methane; the wheel turns for all life. It is all
    temporary. And they—these madmen—respond to the granite, the dust,
    the longing of the inanimate; they want to aid Natur.
    And, he thought, I know why. They want to be the agents, not the
    victims, of history. They identify with God’s power and believe they
    are godlike. That is their basic madness. They are overcome by some
    archetype; their egos have expanded psychotically so that they
    cannot tell where they begin and the godhead leaves off. It is not
    hubris, not pride; it is inflation of the ego to its ultimate
    confusion between him who worships and that which is worshiped. Man
    has not eaten God; God has eaten man.
    What they do not comprehend is man’s helplessness. I am weak, small,
    of no consequence to the universe. It does not notice me; I live on
    unseen. But why is that bad? Isn’t it better that way? Whom the gods
    notice they destroy. Be small. . . and you will escape the jealousy
    of the great.
    As he unfastened his own belt, Baynes said, “Mr. Lotze, I have never
    told anyone this. I am a Jew. Do you understand?”
    Lotze stared at him piteously.
    “You would not have known” Baynes said, “because I do not in any
    physical way appear Jewish; I have had my nose altered, my large
    greasy pores made smaller, my skin chemically lightened, the shape
    of my skull changed. In short, physically I cannot be detected. I
    can and have often walked in the highest circles of Nazi society. No
    one will ever discover me. And—” He paused, standing close, very
    close to Lotze and speaking in a low voice which only Lotze could
    hear. “And there are others of us. Do you hear? We did not die. We
    still exist. We live on unseen.”
    After a moment Lotze stuttered, “The Security Police—”
    “The SD can go over my record,” Baynes said . “You can report me.
    But I have very high connections. Some of them are Aryan, some are
    other Jews in top positions in Berlin . Your report will be
    discounted, and then, presently, I will report you. And through
    these same connections, you will find yourself in Protective
    Custody.” He smiled, nodded and walked up the aisle of the ship,
    away from Lotze, to join the other passengers.
    Everyone descended the ramp, onto the cold, windy field. At the
    bottom, Baynes found himself once more momentarily near Lotze.
    “In fact,” Baynes said, walking beside Lotze, “I do not like your
    looks, Mr. Lotze so I think I will report you anyhow.” He strode on,
    then, leaving Lotze behind.

    George Allen’s Jewish Heritage Confirmed
    http://politics.wizbangblog.com/2006/09/20/george-allens-jewish-
    heritage-confirmed.php
    In a statement on AllenHQ and in in interview with The Jewish Daily
    Forward, Senator George Allen addresses the ethnicity of his parents.
    Yesterday, I found it especially reprehensible that a reporter would
    impugn the attitudes of my mother, as Ms. Peggy Fox did in her first
    question at the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce Senate debate. My
    mother and father both taught me to abhor bigotry, and Ms. Fox’s
    suggestion to the contrary was deeply offensive.”
    “The notion peddled by the Webb campaign that I am somehow
    embarrassed by my heritage is equally offensive, and also absurd.”
    “I was raised as a Christian and my mother was raised as a
    Christian. And I embrace and take great pride in every aspect of my
    diverse heritage, including my Lumbroso family line’s Jewish
    heritage, which I learned about from a recent magazine article and
    my mother confirmed.”
    “On several occasions through the years, I have mentioned publicly
    that my mother’s father was incarcerated by the Nazis. I have never
    known whether he was persecuted by the Nazis because of his
    nationality, his religious faith, his role as a community leader, or
    his part in the anti-Nazi resistance. What I do know is that my
    grandfather’s imprisonment by the Nazis had a profound impact on my
    mother. It was a subject she found painful to discuss and so we
    almost never discussed it.”
    “Some may find it odd that I have not probed deeply into the details
    of my family history, but it’s a fact. We in the Allen household
    were simply taught that what matters is a person’s character,
    integrity, effort, and performance – not race, gender, ethnicity or
    religion. And so whenever we would ask my mother through the years
    about our family background on her side, the answer always was, `Who
    cares about that?'”
    “My mother has lived a long and full life, and I hope and pray she
    will enjoy many more years. She deserves respect and she also
    deserves privacy, especially where painful memories are concerned. I
    sincerely hope that simple decency will be respected.”
    In case you missed the question, here it is:
    “It has been reported,” said Fox, that “your grandfather Felix, whom
    you were given your middle name for, was Jewish. Could you please
    tell us whether your forebears include Jews and, if so, at which
    point Jewish identity might have ended?”
    In a campaign most notable for missteps, Allen’s response confounds
    pundits, but in our estimation plays very well to potential voters,
    at a visceral, emotional level. He wasn’t being questioned about a
    his family history, he was being accused of hiding it. The
    desperation of Jim Webb’s Netroots Coordinator Lowell Feld to make
    this persona matter an issue should be spotlighted by the Allen
    campaign – repeatedly. Privacy, or more importantly inappropriate
    incursions into ones private life, is an issue that everyone can
    identify with, and voters have a history of being very supportive of
    politicians requests to allow them a level of privacy in their
    family – for example Clinton and Bush’s protectiveness of their
    daughters privacy.
    This clip, where Allen’s justifiable outrage at the tone and
    aspersions of the question, will go along way toward erasing the
    memory of the “macaca” video.
    The response shows an Allen who is passionate, raw, unscripted, and
    protective of his family. Anyone who thinks those qualities are a
    negative with voters is just deluding themselves.”

    Former Navy Secretary Virginia US Senate Candidate James Webb has
    been a long
    time opponent of the liberation of Iraq. When he was Secretary of
    the Navy he
    urged that the US attack Saddam’s enemy Iran. While we support the
    liberation of
    both Iraq and Iran, it is clear that the US tilt towards Iraq and
    against Iran
    in the Iran-Iraq war helped to set Iran on its current anti-American
    path.
    That tilt was a major mistake. Webb’s role in that tilt as Secretary
    of the Navy
    during part of the Iran-Iraq war is examined briefly here. Hopefully
    those who
    are naive enough to think of former Navy Secretary Webb as a
    peacemaker will
    have their eyes opened by this brief look at some of his history.

    OF HOW THE WHITE HOUSE ILLEGALLY ARMED IRAQ by Alan Friedman ASIN:
    0553096508
    “In January 1987, as the” (Iran-Iraq)”war entered its seventh year
    and the
    combined death toll neared one million people, Iran began yet
    another major
    offensive. This time it pushed deep into Iraqi territory. Saddam
    Hussein needed
    help-but he also required reassurance from Washington about its
    intentions,
    since revelations in the Iran-Contra scandal were now detailing the
    U.S. covert
    military aid that had been going to his enemy, Iran. From Baghdad’s
    point of
    view, Washington was either ambivalent or duplicitous.
    Thanks to the rival pro-Iraq and pro-Iran factions inside the
    government, the
    United States had indeed sent out very confusing signals.
    Nonetheless, the
    secret shipments to Iran paled when compared with the support given
    Saddam, and
    William Casey led the drive to placate Iraq. He had already met with
    Tariq Aziz
    at the United Nations to make sure Iraq was happy with the flow of
    intelligence
    it was receiving, and he encouraged Aziz to go ahead with more
    attacks on
    Iranian economic targets.
    Then netural ships in the Persian Gulf began coming under attack
    from both Iran
    and Iraq. Those of oil-rich Kuwait were of particular concern to the
    administration. Kuwaiti leaders wanted their oil tankers protected
    by either
    Moscow of Washington, and in March 1987 top U.S. officials including
    Caspar
    Weinberger, George Schultz aand Admiral William Crowe, the chairman
    of the Joint
    Chiefs of Staff, decided to defend Kuwaiti vessels that were
    navigating the
    Gulf.
    Two months later, on May 17th, pro-Iraqi officials such as
    Weinberger suffered
    an instant case of political whiplash when a U.S. frigate, the
    Stark, was
    attacked by an Iraqi warplane and thirty-seven Americans on board
    were
    killed….The Stark incident underscored the increasingly risky state
    of affairs
    in the Gulf, and it was followed by a formal announcement from
    President Reagan
    that the United States would reflag Kuwaiti oil tankers so that the
    U.S. Navy
    could escort them.”
    You can see photos of the USS Stark in the
    VICTIMS OF ARAB ATTACKS photo album at

    “May 17 1987, had started out as a routine day in the Persian gulf,
    we were to
    soon be on patrol escorting the newly flagged Kuwaiti Oil tankers.
    Little Did I
    know that day would change my life forever .we were always thinking
    of The world
    and our loved ones back at home, to get this over with do our duty
    to our
    country .I had just helped Daniel Homicki, move into my old bunk,
    and I went on
    my last watch ,my commitment to the Navy was up.
    What was supposed to be a good last memory for me went horribly
    wrong. The
    excitement of coming home was over shadowed by an Iraqi attack that
    killed 37 of
    my shipmates, and wounded many more, I narrowly escaped death myself
    by being on
    a SH2 Sea sprite helicopter.”

    “USS STARK
    On May 17, 1987, the Oliver Hazard Perry class frigate, USS Stark
    (FFG 31) was
    hit by two Exocet anti-ship cruise missiles fired by an Iraqi F-1
    Mirage fighter
    aircraft while operating in the central Persian Gulf. The explosion
    of the first
    missile caused extensive structural damage and flooding. Combustion
    of the
    burning propellant of both missiles immediately caused intense fires

    throughout the ship. There were 37 deaths and 5 injuries reported as
    a result of
    the attack.

    When the USS Stark (FFG-31) took a hit from a pair of Exocet
    missiles in the
    Persian Gulf in 1987, its port side fire mains ruptured and its
    precious supply
    of A-FFF Foam, which quickly extinguishes Class B oil fires, became
    unavailable.
    Additionally, the ship’s damage control and fire fighting inventory
    did not
    include many of the important fire fighting and life saving
    equipment that
    ordinary fire fighters ashore use every day.
    The Stark incident killed 37 sailors, injured 21 others and caused

    the following is excerpted from:” The Stormy Departure of a Navy
    Secretary who
    veered off course(Washington Post, March 7, 1988) “Webb also
    attempted to dispel
    concerns over a magazine article he’d written years earlier
    entitled “Women
    Can’t Fight” by opening more non-combat jobs to women….. Webb”
    (told) “a group
    of newspaper editors and reporters that he believed the United
    States should
    respond to Iranian hostilities with strikes that would prevent
    further
    aggression rather than hitting small military targets. The United
    States
    recently had destroyed Iranian oil platforms used for communications
    and
    launching small boats.”
    the following is excerpted from:”A Tangled Webb By Colonel Paul E.
    Roush, U.S.
    Marine Corps (Retired)When James Webb wrote “Women Can’t Fight” for
    Washingtonian magazine in 1979, he initiated an assault that
    continues to the
    present day. The assault primarily is on women, but it extends much
    further. It
    is an assault on the Naval Academy and on the naval service. . . .
    It is an assault on civilian control of the military and ultimately
    on the
    constitutional constraints that define the relation between citizen
    and soldier.
    His 1981 book, A Sense of Honor, continued to press certain elements
    of the
    assault. In particular, it decried congressional legislation
    regarding hazing.
    In an article entitled “The War on the Military Culture” in The
    Weekly Standard
    in January 1997, he returned again to some of the basic themes that
    have marked
    his writings over the years.
    The content of James Webb’s writing matters for several reasons.
    First, he is a
    person of influence—a highly decorated small-unit combat leader, an
    accomplished
    writer, a former Secretary of the Navy. Second, his writings are an
    appeal to
    the politics of resentment, one result of which is to foster
    cynicism toward the
    institution and the profession. Third, many midshipmen continue to
    refer to his
    ideas and to be shaped by them in their formative years of
    preparation for
    future leadership roles in the Navy and Marine Corps.
    Accordingly, it is worth giving careful attention to what I see as
    his central
    themes.Theme #1: Stress is fungible and is the means by which
    warriors are made
    at the Naval Academy.Webb seems to believe that response to stress
    generalizes
    almost without limit. In other words, if one learns to deal with one
    kind of
    stress, one is assured of being able to deal with all other kinds of
    stress.
    He uses this theory to defend the use of physical abuse at the Naval
    Academy.The
    argument goes something like this: Being abused physically by those
    in power is
    stressful. Combat also is stressful. Learning to endure the stress
    of physical
    abuse therefore will allow one to face the stress of combat without
    being
    debilitated by it.
    This belief undergirds the notion that the way for a midshipman to
    become a
    warrior is to submit to a regimen of pervasive, arbitrary physical
    and
    psychological abuse at the hands of other barely post-pubescent
    midshipmen who
    have never heard a shot fired in anger. These slightly older
    midshipmen, despite
    their utter lack of combat experience, will know how to create
    warriors. They
    will harass, haze, and brutalize. Then they will separate the
    victims into two
    piles: the worthy and the worthless. Those who submit to and thrive
    on brutality
    will be the worthy; those who do not tolerate it or do not thrive on
    it will be
    counted among the worthless.
    This theme is central to “Women Can’t Fight.” Webb apparently
    believes he owes
    his prowess on the battlefield to the fact that, as a midshipman at
    the Naval
    Academy, he was severely beaten with a cricket bat by a group of
    upperclassmen
    and otherwise exposed to physical assaults. It is a major point in A
    Sense of
    Honor that a plebe is indoctrinated by being severely stressed by an
    upperclassman—never mind that in the process the upperclassman
    violates the
    hazing laws legislated by Congress.
    From this perspective, A Sense of Honor is an object lesson in and a
    glorification of the violation of congressional legislation. Because
    Congress is
    granted the right to make laws governing the armed forces by the
    Constitution,
    the book is also a model of how one violates one’s commissioning
    oath to support
    and defend the Constitution without any mental reservation or
    purpose of
    evasion.
    Stress always has played a part in plebe training, but not always
    did it extend
    to the type of physical abuse Jim Webb recounts. Vice Admirals
    William Lawrence
    and James Stockdale (here, addressing the Brigade of Midshipmen),
    both
    distinguished leaders and warriors, noted that their Naval Academy
    experience
    did not include such abuse.
    Theme #2: Women at the Naval Academy preclude the development of
    warriors.In
    “Women Can’t Fight,” Webb expresses the view that the presence of
    women poisons
    the preparation of men for combat command and that the process of
    training for
    combat leadership at the Naval Academy has been sterilized as a
    result.
    Consider the implications of this particular theme: If the presence
    of women in
    the college experience prevents the brutality that is necessary to
    the
    inculcation of warriorhood, the Marine Corps is in deep trouble.
    After all,
    Naval Academy graduates are a minority within the Marine Corps
    officer cadre;
    most of that cadre went to college with women and missed out on
    being physically
    abused by upperclassmen.
    Does that mean that the majority of the officers in the Marine Corps
    are
    incompetent warriors?The answer, of course, is no; non-academy
    Marine Corps
    officers learn to be warriors at Quantico, which is the same place
    Naval Academy
    graduates learn to be the kind of warriors the Marine Corps wants.
    Theme #3: Military women are the beneficiaries of a pervasive, pro-
    women double
    standard.In “Women Can’t Fight,” Webb grumbles that women are
    advantaged at
    every turn. He is incensed by the fact that the media spend more time
    interviewing women than men, thereby conferring on women undeserved
    attention
    and falsely inferred merit.From the beginning, there has been
    complaining about
    the fact that there are differences in the physical readiness tests.
    The women, it turned out, could receive a given grade with lower
    scores than
    were required from the men for the same grade. Of course, the men
    seldom mention
    the fact that they are allowed to weigh about 30 pounds more than a
    woman of
    their same height before being placed on a weight-control program.
    When that difference is pointed out, they tend to have a sudden
    burst of insight
    in which they see that physiological and anatomical differences
    really do need
    to be taken into account.The unwarranted litany of half-truths with
    regard to
    alleged double standards creates—and, in my judgment, is calculated
    to
    create—resentment among the men.There is a particular aspect of the
    politics of
    resentment on which Webb’s writings seem fixated, namely, resentment
    against
    those who ascribe leadership abilities to women.
    He asserts in “Women Can’t Fight” that women were being rated higher
    in
    leadership by officers than they had been by their male peers.
    Things had gone
    so far by the time Webb wrote his article that peer ratings had been
    discontinued. Webb was mortified; this meant that there was no way
    for a woman’s
    male peers to prevent her from being assigned to leadership
    positions, given
    what he saw as the craven propensity of the company officers to
    impute unmerited
    favor to female midshipmen.Webb does not explain why those male
    company
    officers, who had graduated from an all-male Naval Academy in which
    physical
    abuse was the order of the day, would be so lacking in moral
    courage, so unable
    to deal with the stress engendered by pressure from above that they
    would lie on
    command about the abilities of the women in their companies.
    The implication is that women were unworthy and that all the men
    knew this, but
    the officers were under pressure to artificially and un

Anne Lauvergeon is listed as number eight in The 100 Most Powerful Women at:

    We wonder if Anne Lauvergeon and Hillary Rodham Clinton may have met at some function or other of something called the “Young Leaders Program”. The program is described as: “The Young Leaders is the flagship program of the French-American Foundation and continues to be central to the Foundation’s success in deepening understanding between France and the United States. The program was created in 1981 in response to observations that the close working relationships between French and American leaders in the post-war period were waning as new, younger leaders rose with little exposure to their transatlantic counterparts. From its inception, the program has taken small groups of carefully selected up-and-coming leaders in government, business, the media, the military and the non-profit sector and provided them the opportunity to spend four days discussing issues of common concern and, most importantly, getting to know each other. The relaxed atmosphere and the off-the-record nature of the conferences have fostered trenchant and open discussions of policy and social issues, and have been very successful in facilitating the development of a new network of transatlantic leaders. The 18 meetings which have been held since 1981 have been attended by 250 influential men and women, many of whom have gone on to positions of significant responsibility. Young Leaders include such prominent American as President Clinton, Senators Bill Bradley and Hillary Clinton, General Wesley Clark, …as well as business leaders… On the French side, past participants include several distinguished business leaders, such as, Anne Lauvergeon (with Areva)…Roundtables are moderated by past participants with relevant expertise. An emphasis is always placed on creating an informal, frank dialogue: discussions are therefore strictly off-the-record. The group stays together throughout the length of the conference,with meals, free time and group activities providing further opportunities to develop personal relationships and networks, and promote cross-cultural understanding….”

    “Iran Asks France to Oversee Enrichment
    October 3rd, 2006 By ANGELA CHARLTON Associated Press Writer PARIS A top Iranian nuclear official proposed Tuesday that France create a consortium to enrich uranium in Iran, saying that could satisfy international demands for outside oversight of Tehran ‘s nuclear program. “To be able to arrive at a solution, we have just had an idea. We propose that France create a consortium for the production in Iran of enriched uranium,” Mohammad Saeedi, deputy chief of Iran ‘s Atomic Energy Organization, told France-Info radio.”That way France , through the companies Eurodif and Areva, could control in a tangible way our enrichment activities,” he said.
    Eurodif is a branch of Areva, a French state-controlled nuclear manufacturer, and was created in part with Iranian backing in the 1970s.”…European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana gave a cautious response to the proposal, saying the idea of a consortium had long been discussed in his talks with Larijani. “It’s an interesting thing, but it’s difficult to put it in place,” Solana said on the sidelines of an EU defense ministers’ meeting in Finland .Iranian state television, in a commentary Tuesday, said the proposal amounted to a “a test … to assess the extent of the French government’s realism and flexibility.” It said timing of the proposal following talks between Larijani and Solana “shows Iran ‘s determination in seeking a negotiated settlement” over Tehran ‘s nuclear activities….Iran’s participation in Eurodif was reduced after the 1979 revolution, and now Iran has a “purely financial” stake of about 11 percent through a joint French-Iranian company called Sofidif, Hufnagel said.”

    “It was hardly a secret that Saddam was aiming to develop nuclear weapons. He ahd already shelled out $3 billion, purchasing much of the equipment from the french.

    “Although Saddam had been obtaining most of his arms from the Soviet Union since the early 1970s, the top of the line equipment he really craved was Western. So he had begun cultivating the Europeans, especially the French, and in September 1975 he found himself flying into Paris for a champagne reception offered by Prime Mnister Jacques Chirac. It was not long before France, which saw billions of francs worth of business just over the horizon, began selling Saddam missiles, helicopters, defense electronics, and ultimately the materials and technology he needed to construct a nuclear reactor. So obvious was his intended use of this technology that the French press even allowed itself some grim humor, referring to the Iraqi reactor as “O’Chirac” . After he apporved the Osirak deal and other weapons transactions for Baghdad, he became known in certain French business circles as “Mr.Iraq.”

    “If Baghdad’s nuclear weapons ambitions were acknowledged by London and Washington at the same time they were officially condemmed by them, the same was true of Iraqi chemical weapons development. The Iraqis would frequently order BNL to provide funds to finance a huge petrochemicals complex called PC2, located above seventy kilometers south of Baghdad, near the natural gas feeder lines that came from the southern oil fields. PC2 was to be the pride of the Iraqi military establishment because it had the support of contractors from the United States, Japan, Italy, France and Britain. More significant, as Western intelligence agents knew, although PC2 would manufacture normal petrochemicals upon completion, like many of Saddam’s disquised operations, it would be dual-use. This meant it would be able to generate chemical compounds needed to make mustard gas and nerve gas as well. The head of Iraq’s chemicals industry, Lieutenant General Amer Hamoudi al Saadi, was proud of PC2. Al Saadi was himself a dual operative-his other job was as head of Saddam’s ballistic missile and chemical weapons programs, reporting to Hussein Kamel and his father-in-law, Saddam Hussein.”
    One focus of this post is the alleged French connection in the George Allen lynching. We wonder if anyone knows if the James Webb mentioned immediately below might have been a relative of the James Webb, a.k.a. Jim Webb, who is running for Senate in Virginia. If so please post your sources one way or the other which either establish a connection or establish that there is no connection.

Jim Webb who is running for Senate in Virginia. Webb evidently has some affinity for France as he posits a “showdown between American-French forces and Cuban-Soviets “Something to Die for: A Novel (Hardcover)
    by James H. Webb …this book is based on his experience as a Pentagon insider and frequent visitor to the halls of power.
    Some have dismissed the book’s premise (a showdown between American-French forces and Cuban-Soviets) as outlandish. To do so is not only to neglect the era this book came out of, but to ignore the lessons about “small” wars, political manipulation of the military and the American public’s fickle nature.”
    Here is Webb writing as very much a Francophile:

    Mr. Webb, former secretary of the Navy, is the author of eight
    books, including “Fields of Fire,” a novel about the Vietnam War. He
    is now a Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate in Virginia.

    Hell In a Very Small Place” by Bernard Fall (Lippincott, 1966). For anyone who believes that France’s Dien Bien Phu operation in Vietnam in 1954 was little more than a blunder, and for anyone who believes that the French were not capable fighters in Vietnam, this comprehensive and often surprising nonfiction account of the siege that brought France to its knees will be a deserved surprise. Bernard Fall, the Frenchman who was the most perceptive observer of Vietnam’s shaky march away from French colonialism, wrote several books about Vietnam; he was killed while on a patrol with the U.S. Marines in 1966. This book—his best—shows us the under appreciated complexities of that war, the regional issues that drove many local decisions and the tragic heroism of France’s finest fighting forces.

    Given the Webb campaign’s history of “alleged” anti-Semitism we were hardly surprised by Webb’s choice of another favorite book, this one from the perspective of one of Hitler’s soldiers.
    Here is Webb commenting on another of his favorite books:
    “The Forgotten Soldier” by Guy Sajer (Harper & Row, 1971). This memoir from the perspective of one who fought on the German side in World War II is probably the most overwhelming book ever written about ground combat. Guy Sajer, an Alsatian drafted into the German army, fought for three years as an infantry soldier, mostly on the Russian front. Germany fielded an army of 12 million soldiers and lost 3.7 million combat dead, a preponderance of those casualties occurring in the mind-boggling, massive engagements with the Soviets. Sajer, who had no politics and little enthusiasm for soldiering, nonetheless demands an understanding of the immensity of this human experience, and is the perfect voice to ask for it.”

    “Francois Mitterrand’s political career spanned half a century, and his 14 years as president made him France ‘s longest serving leader since Napoleon III. Peter Morgan of Independent Television News remembers Mitterrand just after his death. Morgan’s report precedes a discussion between Washington Post senior foreign correspondent Jim Hoagland and Charlayne Hunter-Gault.
    PETER MORGAN, ITN: Francois Mitterrand worked at first for Marshal Petain’s pro-Nazi Vichy government. Later, he downplayed his ties with that regime and stressed his work for the Resistance. FRANCOIS MITTERRAND: (speaking through interpreter) I started my political life in the Resistance. It was there that I had my first responsibility.
    PETER MORGAN: But a recently discovered photograph showing Mitterrand with Marshal Petain suggested a more uncomfortable truth. Mitterrand continued to lead a political double life, cultivating the extreme right and the extreme left to further his career. Soon after the liberation, Mitterrand joined the government as its youngest minister, but when DeGaulle returned to power in 1958, Mitterrand left the government. In political exile, the former conservative discovered Socialism. DeGaulle always ridiculed the conversion.” http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/remember/mitterrand_1-8b.html “A recent biography revealed Mitterrand flirted with fascism as a young man and was also, for a time, an admirer of the pro-Nazi collaborationist leader Marchal Petain. Mitterrand himself helped the author’s research and never disavowed the facts presented in the biography.” http://www.cnn.com/WORLD/9601/mitterand/ “Even in death, Mitterrand remains a controversial and contradictory figure. After the Nazi conquest of France , he spent a year working for the collaborationist Vichy government… he defended associates who had aided the persecution of Jews under the Vichy regime.” http://www.amazon.com/Francois-Mitterand-Ronald-Tiersky/dp/0312129084 Bitter Scent : The Case of L’Oreal, Nazis, and The Arab Boycott Michael Bar-Zohar Publisher Information:
    New York : Dutton. Penguin, 1996.
    ISBN: 0525940685
    “The business of L’Oreal is beauty. It is the world’s largest cosmetics firm.” This startling book shows the other face of beauty. It is the story of how this giant company became a haven for ex-Nazis. It reveals the illegal alliance the L’Oreal forged with the Arab Boycott Bureau. And it brings to light the secret link between the L’Oreal high command and the President of France himself, Francois Mitterrand—a link cast in the darkness of the Nazi past. Above all, it tells the story of what happened when L’Oreal partner Jean Frydman, a former French Resistance hero who had fought against anti-Semitism all his life, stumbled upon and exposed the shocking truth about L’Oreal and its web of concealed Nazi collaborators. Making it his crusade to unmask the cosmetics firm’s long history of Nazi connections, Frydman filed suit against L’Oreal for forgery, perjury, and racial discrimination. “Though the Nazi movement of the 1930s and 1940s appears to be moribund, vestiges still remain—and in some unlikely places. Official biographer of David Ben-Gurion and novelist, Bar-Zohar documents the very strange truth of how certain top L’Oreal managers collaborated with Hitler and how they conspired to eradicate an existing Arab boycott on their products in the 1990s. The story begins—and ends—with Jean Frydman, a French-Israeli executive running one of the cosmetic giant’s subsidiaries. Told to resign for no apparently valid reason, Frydman launched a series of investigations and lawsuits that eventually led to the resignations of high-ranking businessmen. Jacques Correze, the president of L’Oreal’s Cosmair in New York City , was part of La Cagoule, a band of Hitler sympathizers; and Andre Bettencourt, a L’Oreal director and friend of French president Mitterrand, was found to have been on the payroll of the propaganda ministry of Nazi Germany. Revelations such as these shocked the world press—and will probably do the same for readers in this well-wrought, fact-filled book.”
    Library Journal: “Bar-Zohar. a specialist on Jewish-Arab relations, presents another masterpiece (previously published in Israel ) about the corruptions and violations of France ‘s anti-boycott laws by L’Oreal, a giant French conglomerate, with the ‘zealous cooperation of the French embassy in Damascus ‘ and other important French dignitaries. Bar-Zohar relates how L’Oreal yielded to the Arab boycott of Israeli products, which started even before the birth of the state of Israel . He also gives a fascinating look into France ‘s murky past during World War II, following the complex story of President Francois Mitterand’s right-wing connections during his youth, activities as an official of the Petain government at Vichy , and his continued and shadowy ties with top L’Oreal executives. The author also delves into the shadowy past of L’Oreal owner Andre Bettencourt, a cabinet minister, senator, and recipient of the Resistance medal who was on the payroll of the Propaganda Ministry of Nazi Germany. Bar-Zohar’s work is richly detailed and clearly argued but not well documented. It is a remarkable work designed for nonspecialists.”
    Publishers Weekly: “In 1989, Jean Frydman, a director of L’Oreal, the highly profitable Paris-based cosmetics conglomerate, learned he had “resigned” at a board of directors meeting that never actually took place. A hero of the French Resistance, founder of Paravision (a L’Oreal subsidiary), a Jew and a part-time resident of Israel , Frydman suspected that his resignation had been forged to meet the demands of the Arab League, which, at that time, was enforcing an illegal ban in both France and the U.S. on businesses with ties to Israel . He later began to suspect that the instigator of his removal was Jacques Correze, a former Nazi collaborator and convicted war criminal who was head of the company’s U.S. operation.
    The ensuing lawsuits created a scandal in France . As retold by Bar-
    Zohar, a novelist and a biographer of David Ben-Gurion, L’Oreal was
    a hotbed of former Nazi sympathizers all too willing to bribe and be
    pressured by anti-Zionists. It also had friends in high places, Bar-
    Zohar claims, as high as French President Francois Mitterand.”

    “Trouble With Uranium Processing Co. H. Josef Hebert
    Associated Press April 11, 2000 WASHINGTON (AP) – Less than two years after the government sold its uranium business, the private company it created to take on the job is mired in financial quicksand. The deal is also jeopardizing a crucial nuclear security agreement with Russia , critics say. USEC Inc.’s (NYSE:USU -news) first 20 months as a private company have been anything but smooth. Its stock has dropped 70 percent, its credit rating is in junk bond territory, and its earnings have nose dived. Amid the financial turmoil, lawmakers and others are questioning the sale. A congressional investigation has been under way for a year, with the first public hearings scheduled this week. While investors have lost millions of dollars, some of the people who pushed hardest for an initial stock offering have profited handsomely.
    “A number of lobbyists, company insiders and investment bankers made a killing financially,” said Charles Lewis, director of the Center for Public Integrity, a private government watchdog.
    In all, Wall Street bankers, Washington lawyers and lobbyists – many with close ties to the Clinton administration – earned more than $75 million on the $1.9 billion sale, according to contracts and interviews. Among those talking up the stock offering in 1998 on Capitol Hill and in the White House were Susan Thomases, a New York lawyer and confidante of Hillary Rodham Clinton, and Greg Simon, formerly Vice President Al Gore’s domestic policy adviser. The law firm of Skadden Arps, which represented President Clinton in the Paula Jones case, was USEC’s lead attorney in the deal.”

    “What Wilson Didn’t Say About Africa Joseph Wilson’s Silent Partners By Fedora with help from a few FReeper friends Former ambassador Joseph Wilson has been a leading spokesman for critics who accuse President Bush of basing his case for war against Iraq on forged documents purporting that Iraq attempted to buy uranium from Niger.
    Wilson’s charge has been discredited by a Senate investigation,1 but
    what
    remains unanswered are questions arising from what is now known
    about French
    intelligence’s role…The role of France and Wilson in undermining
    Bush’s case
    for war looks particularly curious in light of disclosures about
    Saddam
    Hussein’s bribery of foreign political and business figures during
    the course of
    the Oil-for-Food program from 1996 to 2003. Saddam’s web of graft
    spun in many
    directions: among others, to UN officials,Russian and Chinese oil
    companies,
    British critics of Tony Blair’s Iraq policies, and US critics of
    President
    Bush’s Iraq policies, as well as France. Near the center of the web
    was the
    Banque Nationale de Paris, where Iraq’s Oil-for-Food revenues were
    initially
    kept until 2001, when they were redistributed among several
    undisclosed banks
    approved by Iraq. Meanwhile French oil company TotalFinaElf received
    Oil-for-Food vouchers and held a contract to develop oil fields in
    southern
    Iraq.2
    Already in December 2001, Russia had announced it would not support a US attack on Iraq.3 Then shortly after President Bush’s January 29, 2002 State of the Union Address named Iraq as a member of a terrorist-sponsoring “Axis of Evil”, France announced on February 22, 2002 that Europe would not support a US attack on Iraq.4 French intelligence soon began a campaign to discredit the US case for war against Iraq. In 1999, French intelligence had begun investigating the security of uranium supplies in Niger, where uranium production was controlled by a consortium led by the French mining company COGEMA, a division of the French state-owned nuclear energy firm AREVA.
    Wilson, a lifetime Francophile, had spent the bulk of his diplomatic career in former French African colonies like Niger.7 His second wife from 1986 to 1998, Jacqueline, had served the French embassy in Burundi as a “cultural counselor” (a function often used as a cover by French intelligence).8 From Wilson’s experience in Niger he was familiar with the Niger uranium industry. Additionally, he had worked in Iraq during the days leading up to the Gulf War. (Intriguingly, on the eve of Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait Wilson had dined at the home of an arms dealer who bought weapons for Iraq from France; a Vanity Fair profile on Wilson mentions his wife’s presence at this event, but Wilson’s book states “I was the only guest.”).9 Wilson ran his company out of the offices of an investment company called Rock Creek Corporation. Rock Creek was controlled by Mohammed Alamoudi, whom Wilson had met in 1997 at a reception organized for the World Bank by Westar Group. Alamoudi was a member of the Saudi-Ethiopian Alamoudi dynasty, which was heavily invested in the segments of the African economy Wilson was seeking to penetrate. The Alamoudi-affiliated company Delta Services—a Swiss subsidiary of the Saudi company Delta Oil—handled Iraqi oil export contracts in 2000 and 2001 and was revealed in 2003 as a recipient of Iraqi Oil-for-Food vouchers channeled through Abu Abbas, a Palestinian terrorist with Iraqi connections. Delta Services also cooperated with Afghanistan’s Taliban regime in a project to build an oil pipeline from Afghanistan to Pakistan, prior to this project’s suspension in 1998. In 1999, Alamoudi was accused by USA Today reporter Jack Kelley of heading a bank which was being investigated for financing Al Qaeda. USA Today printed retractions of several details in Kelley’s article in 2004, after another member of the Alamoudi family—Abdurahman Alamoudi, a prominent American Muslim lobbyist—was indicted on terror-related charges involving a Libyan-backed conspiracy to assassinate Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Abdullah.
    Abdurahman was ultimately convicted in October 2004 and sentenced to
    23 years in prison.12 Under Mohammed Alamoudi’s direction, Rock
    Creek was chaired by Elias Aburdene, an Arab-American international
    banking advisor and lobbyist who had previously advised banks linked
    to organized crime and intelligence community figures involved in
    the S&L Scam. In 2003 and 2004 Aburdene donated to the Sandhills
    Political Action Committee, which was affiliated with Senator Chuck
    Hagel, 13 a leading Republican critic of the Bush administration’s
    Iraq policy.14
    While Wilson was pursuing his foreign investment ventures, he also served as a foreign policy advisor to the 2000 Presidential campaign of Al Gore. A company the Gore family had a long-term relationship with, Occidental Petroleum, shared business interests with Alamoudi-affiliated companies in Africa and the Middle East, and employed as Vice President for Middle East business Odeh Aburdene,24 who shared a complex network of relationships with Rock Creek’s Elias Aburdene and Joseph Wilson—notably, all three contributed to Arab-American Congressional Caucus leader Nick Rahall,25 who supported Muslim lobbying groups linked to terrorists and opposed military action in Iraq.26 Abdurahman Alamoudi also contributed to Rahall, and sat on the steering committee of Arab Americans for Clinton/Gore ‘96 along with his associate James Zogby, who later advised Gore’s 2000 Presidential campaign.27 Wilson had worked as an aide to Gore from 1985 to 1986 and had developed a friendly relationship with him.
    Wilson says Gore was the first person outside the State Department
    to contact him expressing support when he was caught in Iraq in the
    middle of the diplomatic crisis leading up to the Gulf War. In 1997
    Gore recommended Wilson to President Clinton to help him plan a trip
    to Africa. When Wilson began publicly opposing Bush’s Iraq policy in
    2002, Gore was still considered a potential candidate in the 2004
    election. Gore’s speeches were then being sponsored by the antiwar
    group Moveon.org, which Wilson would support in September 2003 in an
    attempt to petition Congress against appropriating funds for Iraq
    operations.28 Moveon.org was financed by billionaire George Soros,29
    who had business interests encompassing, among other things, the BTC
    Pipeline that Mohammed Alamoudi’s Delta Oil was helping build.30
    Later, after Gore announced in December 2002 that he would not be
    running in the 2004 campaign,31 Moveon.org began supporting John
    Kerry’s campaign.32 Wilson began advising Kerry’s campaign on
    foreign policy matters around May 2003, several months prior to his
    public entry into the Niger uranium controversy.33
    Another question that might be raised is why Wilson and the CIA’s investigation did not explore at least the possibility of the French-led company COGEMA covertly allowing Niger to sell uranium to Iraq.
    In Wilson’s book, while explaining the method that led him to
    conclude the report of Niger selling uranium to Iraq was false,
    Wilson explains that he ruled out the possibility of an off-the-
    books transaction partly because “COGEMA, as the managing partner,
    would have had to know and be complicit.”37 This seems to rule out a
    priori the very thing Wilson was sent to investigate, and in the
    process, to rule out the possibility of French complicity in arming
    Saddam Hussein’s regime, which seems a hasty exoneration in light of
    the fact that France had a long history of selling Iraq military
    equipment and resisting UN sanctions against Iraq.38 It is now known
    that in fact French companies were helping Iraq skirt UN
    sanctions.39”

    We thought you might wish to find out a bit more about C.A.I.R. from “Daniel Pipes, a former Reagan administration Middle East aide who now runs the Middle East Forum in Philadelphia and the wonderfully informative Web site DanielPipes.org: Mr. Pipes says:
    “CAIR is a particularly worrisome organization because it has succeeded in portraying itself as a public affairs organization promoting ‘interest and understanding among the general public with regards to Islam and Muslims in North America.’ In fact, this organization is radical to the core; it seeks nothing less than the imposition of Islamist mores on the United States.” Mr. Pipes notes that CAIR’s record includes the following: “Apologizing for such killers as Hamas (a group associated with the murder of 7 Americans) and Usama bin Ladin (charged with the Tanzania and Kenya embassy bombings a year ago). . . . Helping promote terrorism: In the words of Steve Pomerantz, a former Chief of Counter-terrorism for the FBI, ‘CAIR, its leaders, and its activities, effectively give aid to international terrorist groups.’ . . . Intimidation of patriotic Muslims who disagree with CAIR’s chauvinist agenda: In one case (Sheikh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani), the FBI is looking into charges that he received death threats after renouncing the chauvinists. . . Defense of even the most archaic and barbaric of customs associated with Islam: When a prosecutor in Cleveland argued that the bail of two young men being held for an ‘honor killing’ of their female cousin should be increased, CAIR replied by accusing him of ‘ethnic and religious stereotyping’ and called for a formal investigation into the prosecutor’s actions.” In addition, as anti-terrorism expert Steven Emerson has noted in Congressional testimony, CAIR co-sponsored a May 24, 1998, all-day program in the Walt Whitman Auditorium of Brooklyn College in Brooklyn, New York. As Mr. Emerson testified, “In Arabic,Wagdi Ghuniem, a militant Islamic cleric from Egypt, mesmerized his audience, with his relentless tirade against the Jews, reminding them of the Jews’ ‘infidelity,’ ‘stealth’ and ‘deceit.’ Known for his folksy deliveries and exhortations to commit violence against the Jews, Ghuniem did not disappoint his crowd, several of whom had come just to hear him. The conflict with the Jews, he said, was not over land but one of religion. ‘The problem of Palestine is not a problem of belief. suppose the Jews said “Palestine-you [Muslims] can take it.” Would it then be ok? What would we tell them? No! The problem is belief, it is not a problem of land.’” Mr. Emerson continued: “Ghuniem then led his rapt audience, which numbered as many as 500, in a special song, the audience responsively repeating each refrain: ‘No to the Jews, Descendants of the Apes.’” Says Mr. Pipes: “In short, CAIR represents not the great civilization of Islam but a radical utopian movement originating in the Middle East that seeks to impose its ways on the United States. Americans should consider themselves warned: a new danger exists in their midst.”

    that organization states:
    “The National Conference of Christians and Jews, changed its name in the 1990’s to better reflect its mission to build whole and inclusive communities. The historic name confused many, who believed that NCCJ was an interfaith organization. Therefore the new name is not a change in vision, but rather an affirmation of our abiding commitment to embrace the diversity of our nation. NCCJ is the only national human relations organization that focuses on a broad range of “isms,” the multiple manifestations of discrimination and oppression that are based on one’s religion, race, gender, sexual orientation, bias crimes to racial profiling – the challenges ahead are real. To confront and overcome them, NCCJ maintains an abiding commitment to work with decision-makers and leaders to support their work to build an inclusive society.” Now all of these things are of course worthy goals. Medical research is admirable, so is fighting the ills of tobacco, although Webb himself admits to being someone who has chewed tobacco for many years, and certainly fighting discrimination of any sort is a worthy goal. It is the interesting cross connections between the characters involved in the character assassination and overall lynching of Senator Allen that lead us to believe that there are just too many coincidences involved to be pure coincidence. However, to paraphrase Fox News once again, “We report, you decide!” What do you think of the so-called coincidences in this story? Are they more than mere coincidence?

    Recall if you will Doctor Ken Shelton. Dr. Who? No not the British science fiction series time traveler in any of his many incarnations. Doctor Ken Shelton is the man we firmly believe is lying. Of course lies are nothing new to Saddam’s Saddemocrats. Recall if you will the 2004 fake Dan Rather memo falsely accusing President Bush on his National Guard record. The Big Lie is nothing new to these people. They are masters of The Big Lie. We think Shelton is falsely accusing Virginia Republican US Senator George Allen. We believe that what Shelton is saying is absolutely untrue. “During a deer hunt with Allen in the early 1970s” Shelton lied, “Allen asked whether black families lived in the area before stuffing a female deer’s head into the mail box of a black household. “George insisted on taking the severed head, and I was a little shocked by that,” Shelton lied. “This was just after the movie ‘The Godfather’ came out with the severed horse’s head in the bed,” Shelton lied to the AP. Doug Jones, who said he roomed with Shelton at Virginia, said in a statement that he never saw or heard anything from Allen that supports Shelton ‘s claims. “I never heard George Allen use any racially disparaging word nor did I ever witness or hear about him acting in a racially insensitive manner,” Jones said.”
    Please pay particular attention to the following item in the article below in which Senator Warner is comparing the invitation to the 50th birthday party for Larry Sabato to Marlon Brando’s “offer you can’t refuse”.
    Surely that line must have stuck with Larry Sabato.
    Larry Sabato must have remembered that line.
    “U.S. Senator John Warner, R-Va., compared the invitation to Marlon Brando’s “offer you can’t refuse.”
    In case you are not a fan of The Godfather, which starred Marlon
    Brando Senator Warner’s 2002 reference was to Marlon Brando’s
    character Don Vito Corleone, The Godfather,” Don Vito’s line, “I’m
    going to make him an offer he can’t refuse” was voted as the second
    most memorable line in cinema history in a 2005 poll”
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Godfather
    The reference is to a character being pressured by The Godfather to use a film star favored by The Godfather waking up to find the severed head of a horse in his bed.
    item immediately below is excerpted from the Wednesday, October
    23rd,
    2002 issue of a publication called THE CAVALIER DAILY
    “Life
    Birthday Bashing
    Politicians, professors and students gather to celebrate Larry J.
    Sabato’s 50th birthday and raise money for the Center for Politics…
    Katie
    Sullivan , Cavalier Daily Associate Editor
    … Clearly, these people could only have gathered for one reason—to celebrate Politics Prof. Larry J. Sabato’s 50th birthday. Virginia politicians, political analysts, journalists and University students and alumni gathered Monday night in the Richmond Marriot to wish Sabato a happy birthday… a few prominent Virginia politicians humorously chose to light something else on fire—Sabato’s reputation.
    The celebration, called the “Sabato Five-O,” took the form of a roast a la Comedy Central. The event also served as a fundraiser for The University of Virginia Center for Politics, of which Sabato serves as director.
    The Center for Politics, located on Old Ivy Road …After the crowd
    made its way
    into the dining room, former Virginia
    Gov. L. Douglas Wilder introduced himself as emcee of the night’s festivities, and proceeded to introduce a video, much like those shown at bachelor parties.
    The video started out with photos of Sabato’s youth, then moved to
    doctored photographs including Sabato as Elvis and an onlooker in
    the fateful photograph of former President Clinton and Monica
    Lewinsky. …The program then gave six of Virginia ‘s most powerful
    politicians
    the opportunity to poke fun at a man who, as he himself claimed, has
    predicted defeat for every one of them…. Virginia Attorney General
    Jerry Kilgore
    spoke about Sabato’s ability
    to state the obvious and make it sound profound, then joked about Sabato’s abundance of media exposure.
    “He spends so much time in front of the camera lights,” Kilgore said, “that when he opens his fridge at night he speaks for three minutes.”… U.S. Senator George Allen, R-Va., cited a need to keep Sabato off their backs.
    “There are places we’d rather be,” Allen said. “But we didn’t want to cross the good professor.”
    U.S. Senator John Warner, R-Va., compared the invitation to Marlon Brando’s “offer you can’t refuse.”
    …Allen mentioned budgets cuts facing the University as well, and, indicating Warner, said, “If he cuts your budget next year, Larry, put it in your file as something mean a Democrat did to you.” Allen, who attended the University as an undergraduate with Sabato, remembered Sabato’s beginnings as a student who wanted to fight the power of special interest groups.
    “Then I see this gathering,” Allen said. “You make Hillary Clinton look like a pike.”
    Other commentary centered on Sabato’s role as a professor…
    Politics Prof. Larry J. Sabato covers his face in embarassment as U.S. Senator George Allen teases Sabato about his excessive on-camera time.

    Here is an excerpt from the bio of one George Beam:
    “George Beam Senior Vice President, Nuclear Services AREVA NP Inc. George Beam is currently Senior Vice President of Nuclear Services for AREVA NP Inc. Beam started his career as a Reactor Engineer at the Oconee Nuclear Station in 1977. After two years, he left to attend business school,after which he started work at Babcock & Wilcox in its Nuclear Services business in 1981. He initially started out on staff as a Strategic Planner, followed by several assignments in Business Development/Marketing for Steam Generator and Reactor Services. In 1992, Beam became the General Manager for the Plant Services business responsible for all field services performed by B&W Nuclear Technologies, excluding steam generator services. In 1998, he was promoted to Vice President, Steam Generator Services. Beam received a Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Math and Computer Science from the University of Virginia , a Master of Science in Nuclear Engineering from N.C. State , and a Master of Business Administration from the University of Virginia . He is a registered professional engineer in the state of Virginia .” source:

    PS0&L=US&SYNC=Y
    You may have heard of George Beam, currently Senior Vice President of Nuclear Services for AREVA NP Inc., recently Writing about the imaginary deer hunt, which was really a hunt that never happened
    DALE EISMAN, wrote in The Virginian-Pilot on September 28, 2006 about one “George Beam, now an executive at a nuclear engineering firm based in Lynchburg,(Virginia).”
    Beam, wrote Eisman: “was not part of the hunting party.” Which is of course true because there was no hunt and no hunting party to begin with.
    Eisman writes that Beam “ told the Associated Press that one of the hunters, his now-deceased roommate, Bill Lanahan, described the incident to him later over a beer. “Billy Lanahan told me they cut the head off a deer and stuffed it in a mailbox. He didn’t say whose idea it was, and he didn’t say, at least not in my presence, anything about a black family or a black neighborhood,”
    In our opinion Beam lied to the AP.
    Eisman’s article continued: “Allen insisted Monday that “The deer head story is… pure fabrication, absolutely false.” The senator and several of his former classmates also have denied allegations that he routinely used the “n” word to refer to blacks.
    Beam did not return several calls Wednesday from The Virginian-Pilot…Dick Wadhams, Allen’s campaign manager, insisted Wednesday that there is no evidence to support Shelton ‘s claim and called Shelton and Beam “sad and pathetic” for bringing Lanahan, who died earlier this year, into the dispute. “The incident did not occur. This gentleman is just piling on to a false story,” he said of Beam, adding later that “I have no idea why he would do it.”
    (The fabricated “hunt” allegedly)
    the article being quoted continues:
    “took place on land owned by Lanahan’s family in Louisa County ,
    east of Charlottesville. Maj. Donald Lowe of the Louisa Sheriff’s Department said Wednesday that a search this week of department records failed to produce any evidence of a complaint concerning a deer’s head….Lowe said the sheriff’s department also has interviewed several deputies from the early 1970s as well as with black community leaders at the time. None recalled any complaint concerning a deer’s head.…

    We do not believe Areva Senior Vice President George Beam’s story about the imaginary “deer hunt”.
    Here is Beam being quoted on August 2, 2006
    AREVA wins contract for replacement reactor vessel head project at
    Diablo Canyon power plant…AREVA, through its subsidiary AREVA NP, has received a contract from Pacific Gas & Electric Company for two replacement reactor vessel heads at the Diablo Canyon Power Plant Units One and Two. “The replacement Reactor Vessel Closure Head (RVCH) project is particularly exciting because we are working with AREVA to fabricate RVCHs in the United States for the first time in many years.” “A replacement reactor vessel head with a state-of-the-art integrated head assembly is one of the best economic options for a commercial nuclear utility to choose in today’s cost and safety conscious environment to ensure continued operational safety as well as guarantee shorter outage durations and less cumulative personnel dose in the future. AREVA looks forward to working with PG&E to provide clean, safe, cost effective nuclear power for years to come” said George Beam, Senior Vice President of AREVA NP Inc.”
    The axis of evil certainly figures into this story. Whether it is Iran, Iraq or North Korea.
    “Reprocessing is the chemical separation of the spent fuel into its
    three parts—plutonium, uranium, and highly radioactive reactor
    waste. Several countries have the capability to reprocess North
    Korea’s spent fuel, but only two—the United Kingdom and
    France —have companies that offer commercial reprocessing services.\3 These
    companies also have direct experience in reprocessing magnox fuel—the type of
    fuel used in
    North Korea ‘s 5-MW(e) reactor.\4 Two companies provide commercial reprocessing
    services—British Nuclear Fuels plc. (BNFL) of the
    United Kingdom and Cogema of France—and both have expressed interest in
    reprocessing North Korea’s spent fuel.\5 If either of these companies is
    selected to do the reprocessing, under normal circumstances, the repackaged
    spent fuel would be picked up, transported to the company’s reprocessing
    facility, and placed in interim storage until it is reprocessed. Neither company
    would normally take title to the spent fuel or the
    products of reprocessing so, unless other arrangements are made, the
    separated materials would be stored for up to 5 years and,
    eventually, returned to the country of origin. The specific terms of
    the commercial arrangement would be defined in a contract between the
    parties. According to BNFL, other matters—such as ownership and
    liability for the fuel after its removal—would be defined in letters
    between the governments. According to BNFL, reprocessing
    North Korea ‘s spent fuel would result in approximately 25 kilograms of
    plutonium, 50,000 kilograms of uranium, and 160 liters (one canister) of
    high-level waste. If the spent fuel is reprocessed, the separated plutonium and
    uranium would
    be purified and converted into stable compounds that can be safely
    stored until final disposal.\6 The separated uranium and plutonium
    could be used as fuel for a nuclear power reactor. If not used as
    fuel, the plutonium would be disposed of in an underground
    radioactive waste repository, and the uranium would be stored for its
    economic value and potential use. The radioactive waste would be
    mixed with melted glass and poured into a steel canister to harden—a
    process called vitrification—and eventually disposed of in an
    underground repository.\7
    BNFL representatives estimated that it would cost between $50 million
    to $100 million to transport and reprocess
    North Korea ‘s spent fuel,
    treat the waste, and store the resulting products for up to 5
    years.\8 In addition to the cost of reprocessing, costs would also be
    incurred for the final disposal of the plutonium and the one canister
    of radioactive waste in an underground repository. We could not
    determine the costs of disposing of these materials because, among
    other factors, the disposal location and the cost of preparing the
    materials for disposal are not known.\9”

    We firmly believe Senator Allen’s denial of the deer head story.
    How it was fabricated. Who fabricated it, remains to be seen.
    Here now some background material to consider:

    “Angry Hillary threw book at Secret Service agent
    First lady hit her limo driver in back for allegedly ‘eavesdropping’
    on chat
    June 7, 2003 By Paul Sperry WorldNetDaily.com
    WASHINGTON – In a fit of rage, former first lady Hillary Clinton threw a book at a Secret Service agent, hitting him in the back as he was driving her here in a limousine during the 1996 campaign, former Secret Service officers and agents tell WorldNetDaily.
    She accused the plainclothes agent of “eavesdropping” on her conversation with another passenger in the back seat of the limo, the agents say. The missile she hurled was a painful message for him to mind his own business.
    Hillary Rodham Clinton
    “The book hit him in the back, and it wasn’t lobbed – she was angry,” said a retired uniformed Secret Service officer familiar with the incident.
    “She was under the impression that he was eavesdropping on her
    conversation,” he
    added. “Here he’s the driver, but he was eavesdropping? I don’t know
    how you get
    around that.”
    He said there was no center divider in her vehicle.
    “It was in a limo,” he said. “There’s no separation in hers, not the
    one she was
    in.” The veteran officer, who helped coordinate security in advance
    of President
    Clinton’s trips, says the book was in the back of the limo. “It was
    something
    that she was carrying.”
    Cadillac limousine used by first lady in 1995.
    He said both Clintons viewed Secret Service personnel as “Republican spies,” since many of them worked in the previous Republican administrations. And they were “very skeptical of us.”
    Another retired Secret Service veteran, a plainclothes agent assigned to Clinton’s security detail, corroborated the book-throwing account. “Yeah, it’s true,” he said, without elaborating.
    Though retired from the service, both White House veterans have found jobs in the Homeland Security Department, and they asked that their names be withheld.
    Attempts to reach the driver assigned to Hillary’s protective detail, also retired from the service and working in another federal agency, were unsuccessful.
    A Washington Metro Police detective also recalled hearing of the incident at the time, adding that the former first lady “was pretty sh—ty to the Secret Service guys.” Phone calls to Clinton’s office were not returned. The New York senator is on a book tour.
    The Secret Service officer who did presidential advance said she often spoke in “unacceptable language to officers and to agents.”
    He said the lack of respect stemmed in large part from an overriding suspicion allegedly held by the Clintons that agents doubled as Republican plants, relaying dirt to the first couple’s political enemies. Cutting security posts “When they came into office, because the Republicans were in for so long, they thought everybody in the Secret Service was a Republican spy,” said the Secret Service veteran, who calls himself an Independent. Soon after they took over the White House, the Clintons had agents removed from sensitive areas and permanently eliminated their posts, he says.
    “They requested specific posts be removed so that agents in the uniformed division were out of earshot of the conversations,” he said. “For instance, inside the mansion itself, I know of at least two [posts] that were relocated,” the f

  6. CLINTONS CONNECTED TO THE GEORGE ALLEN LYNCHING
    The latest hot internet speculation is that BOTH Bill and Hillary
    Clinton may well be connected to the lynching of Virginia Republican
    US Senator George Allen. Whether this is mere internet speculation,
    or whether
    it goes farther than that and is actually true remains to be seen.
    Here now the speculation, as Fox News would say: “We Report You

    Recall if you will Doctor Ken Shelton. Dr. Who?
    No not the British science fiction series time traveler in any of
    his many
    incarnations.
    Doctor Ken Shelton is the man accusing Virginia Republican US
    Senator George
    Allen of
    things we firmly believe are absolutely untrue. “During a deer hunt
    with Allen
    in the early 1970s, Shelton said, Allen asked whether black families
    lived in
    the area before stuffing
    a female deer’s head into the mail box of a black household.
    ”George insisted on taking the severed head, and I was a little
    shocked by that,” Shelton said.
    ”This was just after the movie ‘The Godfather’ came out with the
    severed horse’s head in the bed,” Shelton told the AP.
    Doug Jones, who said he roomed with Shelton at Virginia , said in a
    statement that he never saw or heard anything from Allen that
    supports Shelton ‘s claims.
    ”I never heard George Allen use any racially disparaging word nor
    did I ever witness or hear about him acting in a racially
    insensitive manner,” Jones said.”
    What the news stories are NOT
    telling you is that Doctor Ken Shelton is the founder of something
    called Tobacco FREE for Life Tobacco Free for Life – Teaching kids

    research and medical education, as well as some other focus areas,
    in Buffalo, Toronto and Hendersonville. The Cummings Foundation
    previously funded Pardee’s Emergency Department expansion.
    The Perry N. Rudnick Donor Advised Fund of the Community Foundation

    inclusive communities. The historic name confused many, who
    believed that NCCJ was an interfaith organization. Therefore the
    new name is not a change in vision, but rather an affirmation of our
    abiding commitment to embrace the diversity of our nation.
    NCCJ is the only national human relations organization that focuses
    on a broad range of “isms,” the multiple manifestations of
    discrimination and oppression that are based on one’s religion,
    race, gender, sexual orientation, bias crimes to racial profiling –
    the challenges ahead are real. To confront and overcome them, NCCJ
    maintains an abiding commitment to work with decision-makers and
    leaders to support their work to build an inclusive society.”
    Now all of these things are of course worthy goals. Medical research
    is
    admirable, so is fighting the ills of tobacco, although Webb himself
    admits to
    being someone who has chewed tobacco for many years, and certainly
    fighting
    discrimination of any sort is a worthy goal. It is the interesting
    cross
    connections between the characters involved in the character
    assassination and
    overall lynching of Senator Allen that lead us to believe that there
    are just
    too many coincidences involved to be pure coincidence. However, to
    paraphrase
    Fox News once again, “We report, you decide!” What do you think of
    the so-called
    coincidences in this story? Are they more than mere coincidence?
    As far back as May of 2006 Larry Sabato was so concerned about who
    would challenge Republican US Senator George Allen in the Virginia
    Senate Race in 2006 that he was calling one of the Democratic
    candidates for the nomination “The worst candidate I have ever
    seen.” That candidate, Harris Miller, did not get nominated.
    The candidate who was nominated was former Navy Secretary James
    Webb, a.k.a. Jim Webb.
    Sabato in May of 2006 said of George Allen in 2008, “Sabato ranks
    him as one of three GOP hopefuls who have an actual shot at winning
    the nomination.”

    Larry and Me
    I had the good fortune to be able to speak with UVA Prof. Larry
    Sabato yesterday after an event in D.C. I got the chance to ask him
    about some of the hot topics in the Virginia blogosphere and he had
    some interesting things to say.
    ”The worst candidate I have ever seen.” “A joke.” “Won’t even look
    you in the eye when he is talking to you.”
    Who might you ask is he describing?
    None other than 2006 Democrat senate hopeful Harris Miller.
    However, Sabato wouldn’t go so far as to say that Miller wouldn’t be
    the nominee. While the good Professor didn’t shy away from making
    predictions in any other race he was asked about, he didn’t even
    make a guess on the Democrat senate primary next month. Why? Well,
    he seems convinced that there is a large Democrat contingent who
    will never vote for Jim Webb on the sole basis that he was a Reagan
    appointee.
    What he would say is that neither Miller nor Webb would defeat
    George Allen in November. He said that Webb would make it more
    interesting than Miller, but they would both ultimately lose.
    Aside from Democrats not voting for Webb on the basis of his ties to
    the Reagan Administration, Sabato claimed that there are organized
    efforts by Republicans to vote in the Democrat primary for Miller on
    the basis that he is such a horrible candidate and would lose worse
    than Webb to Allen in November. (If there are indeed such efforts, I
    have yet to hear of them.)
    On George Allen in 2008, Sabato ranks him as one of three GOP
    hopefuls who have an actual shot at winning the nomination, the
    other two being John McCain and Mitt Romney. Sabato pointed out the
    weaknesses of all three candidates—McCain being a maverick in a
    party that hasn’t nominated a maverick since Wendell Wilke; Romney
    being Governor of Massachusetts which automatically makes him
    suspect to conservatives; and Allen being more Bush than Bush in a
    time when W’s approval ratings are in the basement.
    Finally, closer to home, I posed the question to Prof. Sabato about
    whether PWC Chairman Sean Connaughton has a future at the statewide
    level in Virginia . Sabato thought that without a doubt he does, but
    said Connaughton might have to wait a cycle or two in order to give
    himself a chance to remake his image after he was, as Sabato put
    it, “unfairly characterized as a Tom Davis-moderate” during the 2005
    Lt. Gov. primary.
    So, there you have it—straight from Sabato’s mouth to my ears and
    typed here by my fingers.

    That Larry Sabato was concerned about who might be elected President
    in 2008 is clear. Here’s Sabato being quoted about a Hillary blunder:
    ”A blunder for Clinton ?
    By THOMAS M. DeFRANK
    DAILY NEWS WASHINGTON BUREAU
    WASHINGTON – Hillary Clinton’s painstakingly crafted campaign to
    soften her limousine liberal pedigree for 2008 hit a speed bump in
    Harlem yesterday.
    Ever since being elected to the Senate, New York ‘s junior senator
    has strived to persuade moderate and independent voters she’s not
    just another Hollywood lefty.
    But her likening of House Republican leaders to slave-era plantation
    overseers at least momentarily complicates her move-to-the-middle
    blueprint.
    ”The use of the word ‘plantation’ is terribly unwise,” said Larry
    Sabato, director of the University of Virginia ‘s Center for
    Politics. “It will just reinforce the view most Americans have of
    Hillary Clinton as being very liberal.”
    It could have been worse, Sabato added: “At least she didn’t mention
    Hitler.”

    Another election day has passed and two of the most frequently
    quoted pundits, Bruce Cain of the University of California at
    Berkeley and Larry Sabato of the University of Virginia , are all
    over the news, giving their supposedly unbiased opinions.
    A quick search of Federal Election Commission records at
    NewsMeat.com reveals that Cain gave Sen. John Kerry $300 last year
    and Sabato donated $500 in 1999 to Utah Democrat James Matheson’s
    winning run for a seat in the House.
    Yet, good luck locating a single news story that quotes either man
    and references the political donations they’ve made.
    Sabato’s official site, the Crystal Ball, evaluates Rep. Matheson’s
    race in 2006, and he doesn’t mention his contribution to Matheson. I
    guess Sabato doesn’t believe in full disclosure and transparency.

    Let’s start off with George Allen critic, to say the least, Larry
    Sabato.
    First let us travel back in time to the Wednesday, October 23rd,
    2002 issue of a publication called THE CAVALIER DAILY
    when “Politicians, professors and students gather to celebrate Larry
    J. Sabato’s 50th birthday and raise money for the Center for
    Politics” Surely Mr.Sabato’s 50th birthday party must have been an
    unforgettable
    occasion for him. You can see a photo or Mr. Sabato being teased by

    time.”
    http://www.cavalierdaily.com/CVArticle.asp?ID=13613&pid=918
    Please pay particular attention to the following item in the article
    below in which Senator Warner is comparing the invitation to the
    50th birthday
    party for Larry Sabato to Marlon Brando’s “offer you can’t refuse”.
    Surely that
    line must have stuck with Larry Sabato.
    Larry Sabato must have remembered that line.
    ”U.S. Senator John Warner, R-Va., compared the invitation to
    Marlon Brando’s “offer you can’t refuse.”
    In case you are not a fan of The Godfather, which starred Marlon
    Brando Senator Warner’s 2002 reference was to Marlon Brando’s
    character Don Vito Corleone,The Godfather,”Don Vito’s line, “I’m
    going to make him an offer he can’t refuse” was voted as the second
    most memorable line in cinema history in a 2005 poll”

    The reference is to a character being pressured by The Godfather to
    use a film star favored by The Godfather waking up to find the
    severed head of a horse in his bed.

    Birthday Bashing
    Politicians, professors and students gather to celebrate Larry J.
    Sabato’s 50th birthday and raise money for the Center for Politics…
    Katie
    Sullivan , Cavalier Daily Associate Editor
    …Virginia Gov. Mark R. Warner slowly worked his way through the
    crowd,….
    Clearly, these people could only have gathered for one reason—to
    celebrate Politics Prof. Larry J. Sabato’s 50th birthday.
    Virginia politicians, political analysts, journalists and University
    students and alumni gathered Monday night in the Richmond Marriot to
    wish Sabato a happy birthday.
    Rather than traditional cake and candles, however, a few prominent
    Virginia politicians humorously chose to light something else on
    fire—Sabato’s reputation.
    Warner said he accepted the invitation to speak for the opportunity
    to give Sabato some of his own medicine.
    ”Larry’s been roasting all of us for years,” Warner said. “Turnabout
    is fair play.”
    The celebration, called the “Sabato Five-O,” took the form of a
    roast a la Comedy Central. The event also served as a fundraiser for
    The University of Virginia Center for Politics, of which Sabato
    serves as director.
    The Center for Politics, located on Old Ivy Road …After the crowd
    made its way
    into the dining room, former Virginia
    Gov. L. Douglas Wilder introduced himself as emcee of the night’s
    festivities, and proceeded to introduce a video, much like those
    shown at bachelor parties.
    The video started out with photos of Sabato’s youth, then moved to
    doctored photographs including Sabato as Elvis and an onlooker in
    the fateful photograph of former President Clinton and Monica
    Lewinsky. …The program then gave six of Virginia ‘s most powerful
    politicians
    the opportunity to poke fun at a man who, as he himself claimed, has
    predicted defeat for every one of them…. Virginia Attorney General
    Jerry Kilgore
    spoke about Sabato’s ability
    to state the obvious and make it sound profound, then joked about
    Sabato’s abundance of media exposure.
    ”He spends so much time in front of the camera lights,” Kilgore
    said, “that when he opens his fridge at night he speaks for three
    minutes.”…
    U.S. Senator George Allen, R-Va., cited a need to keep Sabato off
    their backs.
    ”There are places we’d rather be,” Allen said. “But we didn’t want
    to cross the good professor.”
    U.S. Senator John Warner, R-Va., compared the invitation to Marlon
    Brando’s “offer you can’t refuse.”
    …Allen mentioned budgets cuts facing the University as well, and,
    indicating Warner, said, “If he cuts your budget next year, Larry,
    put it in your file as something mean a Democrat did to you.”
    Allen, who attended the University as an undergraduate with Sabato,
    remembered Sabato’s beginnings as a student who wanted to fight the
    power of special interest groups.
    ”Then I see this gathering,” Allen said. “You make Hillary Clinton
    look like a pike.”
    Other commentary centered on Sabato’s role as a professor…

    We have a million dollar question about Larry Sabato. From “AJR,
    American Journalism Review April/May 2005 issue The Quote
    Machines By Mark Francis Cohen
    Mark Francis Cohen, whose work has appeared in the Washington Post
    and the New York Times, is a contributing editor at Washingtonian
    magazine.
    Larry J. Sabato, who bills himself on the paid speaking circuit
    as “probably the most quoted college professor in the land,”
    recently donated $1 million to the University of Virginia .
    That sum of money—estimated to be 12 to 13 times the scholar’s
    annual salary—makes Sabato, 52, the most generous faculty member the
    university has ever employed. Actually, it’s one of the biggest
    gifts an active professor has handed to a school anywhere.
    So where did Sabato get all this cash? “Thank goodness for compound
    interest,” the mustachioed pundit told the Washington Post the day
    his gift was announced. “It’s amazing what you can live on eating
    Kraft Macaroni & Cheese for dinner.”
    ”Still, a prudent lifestyle and savvy investment decisions hardly
    explain Sabato’s beneficence. The scholar has amassed mounds of
    extra cash writing 23 books and moonlighting as a public speaker.
    He’s a successful pundit whose words and face blanket the newspapers
    and airwaves, appearances that boost his profile and his cachet on
    the speaking circuit….it has become routine for individual editors,
    say on a national desk, to forbid reporters from using certain
    pundits as sources. Many editors interviewed for this article would
    only admit such prohibitions anonymously. “I have told my reporters
    not to use Larry Sabato anymore,” says the editor of a publication
    that covers Congress.”
    You decide: Where did Sabato get the million dollars? Why would “the
    editor of a publication that covers Congress” have told
    his “reporters not to use Larry Sabato anymore.” ?
    Dr. Shelton said Mr. Allen used the N-word only around white
    teammates.
    Dr. Shelton said the incident with the deer head occurred during

    ”Virginia Senator Denies Using ‘N Word’
    George Allen: Accusation By Ex-College Teammate ‘Absolutely False’
    ”I don’t remember ever using that word and it is absolutely false
    that that was ever part of my vocabulary.”
    RICHMOND, Va., Sept. 25, 2006
    (AP) Sen. George Allen on Monday denounced as “ludicrously false”
    claims from a former college football teammate that he frequently
    used a racial slur to refer to black people.
    Dr. Ken Shelton, now a radiologist in Hendersonville , N.C. , also
    alleges that Allen, a former University of Virginia quarterback,
    once stuffed the severed head of a deer into a black household’s
    oversized mail box.
    In an Associated Press interview, Allen vehemently denied the
    allegations Shelton made in an article published in the online
    magazine Salon.com and an AP interview Sunday night.
    His campaign released statements from four other ex-teammates
    defending Allen and rejecting Shelton ‘s claims.
    ”The story and his comments and assertions in there are completely
    false,” Allen said during an interview with AP reporters and
    editors. “I don’t remember ever using that word and it is absolutely
    false that that was ever part of my vocabulary.”
    Questions about racial insensitivity have dogged the Republican
    throughout his re-election bid against Democrat Jim Webb.
    Shelton , a tight end and wide receiver for the Cavaliers in the
    early 1970s, said Allen used the N-word only around white teammates….
    During a deer hunt with Allen in the early 1970s, Shelton said,
    Allen asked whether black families lived in the area before stuffing
    a female deer’s head into the mail box of a black household.
    ”George insisted on taking the severed head, and I was a little
    shocked by that,” Shelton said.
    ”This was just after the movie ‘The Godfather’ came out with the
    severed horse’s head in the bed,” Shelton told the AP.
    Doug Jones, who said he roomed with Shelton at Virginia , said in a
    statement that he never saw or heard anything from Allen that
    supports Shelton ‘s claims.
    ”I never heard George Allen use any racially disparaging word nor
    did I ever witness or hear about him acting in a racially
    insensitive manner,” Jones said.”
    Jim Webb, a.k.a. James Webb is Senator Allen’s opponent in the
    Virginia Senate
    race this year. Webb is an opponent of the liberation of Iraq. Webb

    ”Webb’s alleged use of a racial epithet
    In late September, Webb was asked if he had ever used the “N-word.”
    Webb replied that “I don’t think that there’s anyone who grew up
    around the South that hasn’t had the word pass through their lips at
    one time in their life.” Webb noted that that word and a lot of
    other epithets were in “Fields of Fire,” a novel Webb wrote about
    the Vietnam War.
    Allen campaign officials referred reporters to Dan Cragg, a former
    acquaintance of Webb’s. Craig said that Webb told him in 1983 that
    Webb and members of his ROTC unit at the University of Southern
    California would “hop into their cars, and would go down to Watts ,”
    taking fake rifles, yell out epithets, “point the rifles at them,
    pull the triggers and then drive off laughing.”

    By contrast, although he has wrongfully been painted as a racist by the
    Saddemocrat controlled media US Senator George Allen, Republican of Virginia is
    no such thing. He is in fact, just the opposite.
    As a US Senator George Allen sponsored legislation to award $1.25 billion in
    grants for computers and technology for historically black colleges and
    universities — the measure died in the US House of Representatives.
    “I have worked very hard in the Senate to reach out to all Americans, regardless
    of their race, religion, ethnicity or gender,” Senator George Allen said.
    Senator George Allen proposed that the Senate apologize for its failure to enact
    anti-lynching laws in the 1930’s and 40’s.
    In fact Senator Allen is being politically lynched every day in the Saddemocrat
    controlled media. He is no racist.
    We have what we believe is a credible theory about the so-called
    ”macaca” incident. What we did not know at the time the so-called
    ”macaca” story appeared was that Senator Allen’s mother is Jewish.
    We found that out later. Jews of the generation of Senator Allen’s mother
    frequently speak one version of Yiddish or another.
    Here is some of the coverage of the so-called “macaca” incident:
    “This fellow here, over here with the yellow shirt, Macaca, or whatever his name
    is, he’s with my opponent,” Mr. Allen said on Friday night at a rally in Breaks,
    next to the Kentucky border. “He’s following us around everywhere. And it’s just
    great…. The senator’s communications director, John Reid, said in an interview
    Tuesday that Allen campaign workers had good-naturedly nicknamed Mr. Sidarth
    “Mohawk” because he would not disclose his name and the sobriquet seemed
    appropriate for Mr. Sidarth’s hairstyle. Perhaps, Mr. Reid suggested, “Mohawk”
    morphed into “macaca,” with results that turned out to be regrettable.
    After his initial use of the term, Mr. Allen went on to urge the crowd to “give
    a welcome to Macaca here. Welcome to America and the real world of Virginia
    .”Mr. Reid said those words were not an effort to stamp a “foreigner” label on
    Mr. Sidarth, who was born in Fairfax County , Va. People who follow the campaign
    of Mr. Allen, who was born in California , know that he often talks about “the
    real America , real people in the real world,” meaning people outside the
    Washington Beltway, Mr. Reid said. Mr. Allen expressed further regrets on
    Tuesday, saying, “I apologize if my comments offended this young man.”
    What we believe Senator Allen was trying to say was
    fakakta: Yiddish for crazy, all mixed up.

    We believe that Senator Allen would have heard one version of that word or
    another frequently as a child from his Jewish mother or one or more of his other
    Jewish relatives,some of whom spoke several languages.

    years, as one individual, and *** Bank, the credit card side of it – absolutely
    dreadful.”
    There are thousands of online examples of the word fakakta
    which is also sometimes spelled in a variety of other ways including
    fekakte or verkakte, among others. We cannot blame Senator Allen for
    mispronouncing fakakta as “macaca”. He certainly never meant to use any sort of
    racial slur or epithet.
    ”In October of 1983
    (according to a report in The Jerusalem Post), Syrian television
    showed 16-year-old girls-trainees in the Syrian Ba’ath Party
    militia-fondling live snakes as President Hafez Assad and other
    Syrian leaders looked on approvingly. Martial music reached a
    crescendo as the girls suddenly bit the snakes with their teeth, repeatedly tore
    off flesh and spat it out as blood ran down their chins. As the leaders
    applauded, the girls
    then attached the snakes to sticks and grilled them over the fire,
    eating them triumphantly. After this, militiamen “strangled puppies and drank
    their blood.” Such demonstrations are clearly intended to send a message to the
    regime’s domestic opponents.”

    ”The Wall Street Journal October 25, 1990 With a sudden flash of
    teeth and claws, our new Syrian ally has pounced on what remains of
    Lebanon. Syrian troops, who have been occupying most of Lebanon
    since 1984, overran the headquarters of General Michel Aoun, the
    military chief of Lebanon’s Maronite Christians, on Oct. 13. No
    organized military resistance to Syria now exists in what was once
    the Arab world’s best approximation of democracy. *** With
    Washington’s smiles turning back toward Damascus, Syrian President
    Hafez Assad grabbed his opportunity, and General Aoun has been
    driven to seek refuge in the French Embassy in Beirut. At least 30,
    and perhaps as many as 100, of General Aoun’s followers were
    captured by Syrian soldiers, handcuffed, lined up and shot in the
    back of the head. On Sunday in the town of Baabda, gunmen in
    Lebanese army uniforms murdered another of the few remaining
    Lebanese leaders to dare to oppose Syrian control-Danny Chamoun-and
    his wife and two young sons. France has asked the United Nations to
    investigate the atrocities that have followed the Syrian takeover.
    The U.S has not joined that request. The State Department,
    instantaneous and eager in its condemnation of Israel, has yet to
    mumble a word of displeasure about Syria’s killings. As the Syrians
    descend on Lebanon, so soon after their brother Baathists consumed
    Kuwait, we hope the Bush Administration is able to sustain a clear-
    eyed view of America’s new Middle Eastern ally, Hafez Assad.”
    Can you imagine the nightmare of Hillary Rodham Clinton elected
    President in 2008 and James Webb,a.k.a. Jim Webb, elected Vice President in
    2008? What sort of views does Webb have of Bashir al Assad, the son of the
    Syrian dictator Hafez Al Assad, and his Baathist regime?
    Here is Webb being quoted about Syria, the nation from which and
    through which most of the terrorists who are murdering Americans and coalition
    forces and innocent Iraqis right now come from,in 2006:
    ”On the current situation in the Middle East, Webb said he believes
    the U.S. must befriend Syria and try to use that country as an ally…”
    And if under President Hillary Rodham Clinton and Vice President James Webb,
    a.k.a. Jim Webb, or President Webb should something happen to Presdient Hillary
    Rodham Clinton the U.S. befriends Syria and tries to use Syria as an ally what
    country or countries will
    Syria be used as an ally against?
    Against Israel? Syria is no friend of Israel. So if under President Hillary
    Rodham Clinton and Vice President James Webb, a.k.a. Jim Webb
    America becomes the friend of Syria and the Syria is the enemy of
    Israel does America become the enemy of Israel? Does America nuke
    Israel? Does America round up American Jews and open extermination camps? In
    America can a sitting US Senator be asked whether he has Jewish ancestry? Think
    it can’t happen here? It just did in Virginia!

    SYRIAN THREAT, ROCKET THREATS
    Tensions with Syria continue, while Israel Air Force officer says
    short-range rockets are the main threat.
    Syria’s Information Minister Muhsin Bilal says the “Syrian nation will not wait
    much longer for the return of the Golan Heights.” He told the Egyptian Al-Ahram
    newspaper that though Syria has waited patiently for 16 years hoping the “peace
    for land” formula would be implemented, “nothing has happened.” In the
    meanwhile, an Israel Air Force officer said today that the main threat against
    Israel today stems from short-range rockets from Gaza, Lebanon and possibly
    Judea and Samaria. “If the IDF had had full intelligence on everything going on
    in southern Lebanon near Israel, we could have prepared better for a better
    solution, both from the air and on the ground, to the short-range Katyusha
    missiles,” he said. The officer said that the maps used by the Air Force were
    more up-to-date than those used by the ground forces.Two Kassam rockets were
    fired by Palestinian terrorists in Gaza Monday morning. The rockets landed just
    short of the northern Gaza border fence, causing no damage.”
    And what of Hamas, whose headquarters are in Damascus,Syria?
    ”Report: Hamas weighing large-scale conflict with Israel
    …Hamas smuggled hundreds of tons of weapons from Egypt into Gaza Strip Aaron
    Klein, WND Hamas has succeeded in smuggling “hundreds of tons” of weapons from
    Egypt into the Gaza Strip and is preparing for the possibility of launching a
    large-scale conflict with Israel… Hamas has smuggled from the Egyptian Sinai
    desert between several hundred and 1,300 tons of advanced rockets; anti-tank and
    anti-aircraft missiles; rocket propelled grenades; raw explosives; rifles;
    ammunition; and other heavy weaponry….Israel withdrew from the Gaza Strip last
    year. In a deal brokered in November by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, the
    Egypt-Gaza border, once controlled by the Jewish state, now is manned by
    Egyptian and (so-calle) “palestinian” security officials and is observed by
    European monitors. The monitors reportedly have fled their duty several times
    the past few months. Israeli security officials have noted multiple breaches in
    border security, including the transport of terrorists and weapons across the
    border. They say several key sections of the border are penetrable and that
    smuggling tunnels that snake under the border are “thriving.” …since the
    Jewish state withdrew from Gaza, the (so-called) “palestinians” successfully
    have transferred hundreds of tons of weapons into the Strip. “If we don’t move
    to counter this smuggling, it will continue and create a situation in Gaza
    similar to the one in southern Lebanon,” (Yuval Diskin,
    director of Israel’s Shin Bet Security Services, said)referring to Hizbullah’s
    development of large rocket and weapons arsenals in south Lebanon for use
    against Israel. Hizbullah ‘turning Gaza into south Lebanon’… “he is right. We
    are turning Gaza into south Lebanon,” said Abu Ahmed, northern Gaza leader for
    the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terror group. “We learned from Hizbullah’s victory
    that Israel can be defeated if we know how to hit them and if we are well
    prepared,” Abu Ahmed said. “We are importing rockets and the knowledge to launch
    them and we are also making many plans for battle.” Abu Abdullah, a leader of
    Hamas’ so-called “military wing” told WND his group is preparing for war against
    Israel. “In the last 15 months, even though the fighters of Hamas kept the
    cease-fire, we did not stop making important advancements and professional
    training on the military level. In the future, after Hamas is obliged to stop
    the cease-fire, the world shall see our new military capabilities,” said Abu
    Abdullah, who is considered one of the most important operational members of
    Hamas’ Izzedine al-Qassam Martyrs Brigades, Hamas’ declared “resistance”
    department. Al Aqsa’s Abu Ahmed said his group is receiving help from Hizbullah
    to import long-range rockets and train in guerrilla warfare tactics. “We have
    warm relations with Hizbullah, which helps with some of the training programs,”
    Abu Ahmed said. “We don’t have anything to be ashamed of – that we are dealing
    with Hizbullah and that we are receiving training and information from them.” He
    said Hizbullah maintains cells in the Sinai. “The Sinai is an excellent ground
    for training, the exchange of information and weapons and for meetings on how to
    turn every piece of land into usable territory for a confrontation with Israel,”
    Abu Ahmed said. The terror leader said (so-called) “palestinian” groups are
    developing war bunkers inside Gaza imilar to the underground Hizbullah lairs
    Israel found during last month’s war in Lebanon. “Our preparations include the
    building of special bunkers. Of course, we are taking into consideration that
    Gaza is not the same topography as Lebanon,” Abu Ahmed said. During its
    confrontation with Hizbullah, Israel destroyed scores of complex bunkers that
    snaked along the Lebanese side of the Israel-Lebanon border. Military officials
    said they were surprised by the scale of the Hizbullah bunkers, in which Israeli
    troops reportedly found war rooms stocked with advanced eavesdropping and
    surveillance equipment they noted were made by Iran. Abu Ahmed said the most
    important “tool” in the so-called “palestinian resistance arsenal was rockets.
    He said his group learned from Hizbullah that Israel can be defeated with
    missiles. “We saw that with the capacity to bombard the Israeli population with
    hundreds of rockets every day we can change the strategic balance with Israel,”
    he said. Since Israel’s Gaza withdrawal, so-called “palestinian” terror groups
    have been regularly firing rockets at nearby Jewish communities. The terrorists
    generally have fired three versions of Qassam rockets, improvised steel
    projectiles filled with explosives and fuel. Qassams can travel between one and
    five miles depending on the sophistication of the particular rocket.
    Israel has noted improvements in Qassams, including rockets carrying double
    engines. Israeli security officials say a large number of Katyusha rockets have
    been brought into Gaza. Katyushas can travel about 12 miles and can deliver
    large payloads. Hizbullah fired more than 2,800 Katyusha rockets into Israel in
    July and August, devastating many northern towns. In August, Islamic Jihad fired
    a Katyusha rocket into the Israeli Negev. It landed in an empty area. In June
    the group fired a Katyusha-like rocket that traveled about nine miles. “The
    Katyusha we fired (in August) shows we can have every weapon we need,” said Abu
    Ahmed. “It is only a matter of a small period before Gaza is ready for war.”
    James Webb, a.k.a. Jim Webb, Senator Allen’s opponent in the
    November 2006 Election appears to be a man who will say and perhaps do anything
    to get elected. Here is Webb being quoted :
    By Todd Jackson on Tuesday August 1st, 2006
    ”The country, too, should tailor an affirmative action plan that
    would aid only blacks, Webb said, because that’s the only group of people to be
    systematically held down decade after decade in the U.S.” “On the current
    situation in the Middle East, Webb said he believes the U.S.must befriend Syria
    and try to use that country as an ally…””Webb, sitting in an easy chair in
    Democrat Warren Campbell’s living room,acknowledged that he’s got name
    recognition issues—particularly in Western Virginia—a day after a Mason-Dixon
    poll revealed that 33 percent of 625 survey
    respondents statewide don’t know who he is. The same poll showed
    that incumbent Republican Sen. George Allen’s name recognition is 97
    percent.Moreover, 58 percent say Allen is doing a good or excellent job. Three
    months from Election Day, Allen leads Webb by 16 percentage points, the poll
    found.

    whispering to black voters?
    ”To understand me, you’ve got to look at things like my mother. My
    mother grew up in East Arkansas. When her father died, they were the only white
    family living in a black section of town. They had to follow the crops, picked
    cotton, strawberries . . . there is not a black family in this country that had
    it rougher than they did. I am still finding out how rough things were.”
    (Washington Post, 12/8/1985).
    ”Affirmative action, which originally sought to repair the state-
    induced damage to blacks from slavery and its aftermath, has within one
    generation brought about a permeating state-sponsored racism that is as odious
    as the Jim Crow laws it sought to countermand. A Soviet-style bureaucracy of
    political commissars now
    monitors every level of our society to ensure that racial and
    gender “diversity” matches pre-ordained models, using the awesome powers of
    government to make certain that white males are not “overrepresented” in
    education, employment or
    government contracts.” (Wall Street Journal, 5/22/00)
    ”It would be folly to assume that affirmative action has done
    anything but exacerbate these disparities” (Wall Street Journal, 6/19/95)
    ”[The racial polices established by Clinton for the military are]
    absolute stupidity,” said former Navy Secretary James Webb, who has

    at large.”

    Writings Scrutinized During Campaign for Democratic Nomination

    RICHMOND—Democratic Senate candidate James Webb has a childhood
    memory of relatives living hard lives in southwest Virginia
    communities with no electricity.
    That’s why when he started studying affirmative action programs as a
    law student, he came to a question: Why was preferential treatment
    given on the job to all kinds of ethnic groups that were considered
    disadvantaged—Latinos, Asians, blacks, Native Americans—but
    not to
    working-class whites struggling to overcome poverty?”
    Kind of reminds me of voting for the $87 billion before voting

    anyone can remember Kerry’s 2004 flip flops.
    A historical note, this writer went to Mississippi in the 1960s to

    the use of the
    so-called “n” word in some of the articles being quoted. I find the
    word to be
    offensive and atrocious.
    I have included it sparingly where it exists in some of the articles

    quoted for the sake of accurately relaying what some of the articles
    being
    quoted are saying. Nonetheless I am repelled by the word itself, and
    by those
    who would use it against other human beings. I do not believe that
    Senator Allen
    ever used it against anyone. I do believe that James Webb, a.k.a.
    Jim Webb did
    and may still do so. Moreover Webb is not the only one to have
    allegedly used,
    and possibly still be using, such an atrocious racial slur.

    More Than Sex: The Secrets of Bill and Hillary Clinton Revealed by
    Arkansas State Trooper NewsMax.com
    September 14, 1999 Washington – An Arkansas State Trooper who once guarded Bill
    Clinton has revealed startling new information about Bill and Hillary Rodham
    Clinton. Trooper Larry Patterson, a recently retired 32-year veteran of the
    state police,
    had been the most senior member of the elite Governor’s Security
    Detail during the period Bill Clinton served as Governor. During that time,
    Patterson became privy to Bill and Hillary Clinton’s most closely guarded
    secrets. Patterson told his story exclusively to NewsMax.com and Internet
    Vortex. NewsMax.com has
    published More than Sex: The Secrets of Bill and Hillary Clinton
    Revealed — a two-hour audio cassette tape of Christopher Ruddy’s interview with
    Trooper Larry Patterson. In More than Sex Patterson makes bombshell revelations,
    some of which
    have never been disclosed before: Organized Crime. The press has ignored
    reporting of this critical issue, but
    Patterson says Clinton had a close relationship with the head of the
    Dixie Mafia—Arkansas’ homegrown organized crime family that has grown in recent
    years through drug trafficking. Patterson said Clinton regularly received gifts
    from
    the reputed mob boss. Ethnic Slurs about Jews. Both Hillary and Bill Clinton
    frequently used slurs during heated arguments with each other, Patterson said.
    Among the epithets they
    frequently hurled at each other were anti-Semitic slurs such
    as ‘mother f—in’ Jew’ or ‘Jew bastard’. Patterson said such references were
    heard frequently during the years he served the Clintons. Patterson said Clinton
    loved telling
    ethnic jokes and frequently told jokes that were anti-Semitic.
    The use of the “N” word. Patterson said Bill Clinton would use the
    word “nigger” — the “N” word — when he was angry with African-American
    opponents. He recalls the use of the word in describing a black, Arkansas
    activist who was critical
    of Clinton. Patterson said Clinton also used the “N” word during the
    1992 campaign Hitler and Mein Kampf. Bill Clinton, Patterson said, spoke
    admiringly of Hitler and was fascinated by his book Mein Kampf.

    In 2004 John Forbes Kerry launched what was seen by many as a pre-emptive strike
    against the Bush-Cheney re-election campaign by discussing the sexual
    orientation of Vice President Cheney’s daughter. Some years earlier, published
    reports in a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania newspaper had alleged that Theresa Heinz,
    who later became Theresa Heinz Kerry, was a lesbian. In light of the
    vulnerability to charges of racism in the story immediately above one wonders
    whether history was in a sense repeating itself when
    the baseless charges of racism against US Senator George Allen of Virginia were
    aired by the Saddemocrat controlled media. Kerry’s 2004 campaign was taken over
    by Clintonistas in the fall of 2004.

    ’Clintonistas’ Rally Behind Kerry’s Presidential Bid
    AFP: 9/22/2004 WEST PALM BEACH, United States (AFP) – Democratic Senator John
    Kerry‘s White House bid has become more combative, more open to reporters and
    delivered a more focused message recently which
    observers have attributed to the influence of former Bill Clinton
    administration staffers. Under advice from the ‘Clintonistas‘, according to US
    media reports, the veteran Massachusetts senator‘s campaign has clicked into a
    higher gear just 41 days before Amercians go to the polls on November 2. The
    Democratic presidential hopeful interrupted his campaigning across Florida on
    Tuesday to hold a press conference, his first in more than seven weeks, at which
    he lambasted President George W. Bush‘s credibility over Iraq.
    Kerry last spoke took questions from the press on August 9, despite
    the growing number of reporters who are following the Democrat
    around the country. Kerry criticized Bush who has also kept his distance from
    the press. …Under the guidance of former Clinton era White House spokesman Joe
    Lockhart, and other former high-powered ‘Clintonistas‘ including James Carville,
    Paul Begala,… the Democratic candidate has become more combative and less
    nuanced.
    Kerry has notably increased his attacks on Bush, concentrating his
    fire on Bush‘s handling of Iraq in clear-cut language.
    Citing the “chaos” and “colossal errors” in Bush‘s decision to go to
    war against the former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein in March 2003,
    Kerry laid into Bush in a speech on Iraq this week at New York
    University.
    According to Michael McCurry, another former Clinton spokesman who
    has joined the Kerry campaign, the speech was “exactly what you‘d
    expect, many people have said this was a speech that you needed to
    give.”
    The Democratic candidate, who has pulled back of late in some polls,
    has said he always performs better as he approaches the finishing
    tape in political campaigns.
    ”Tonight I‘m going to talk softly, but carry a big stick, the guys
    have got me in a fighting mood,” Kerry told thousands of supporters
    at an Orlando rally late Tuesday.
    ”There is a time for everything and it was time for him to take off
    the gloves,” Kerry‘s wife Teresa told a New York audience at a fund-
    raising dinner for her husband.
    Kerry has not hidden the fact that Bill Clinton‘s seemingly
    inexhaustable energy might be rubbing off: “He is probably the best
    observer of American politics, the only Democrat who‘s won twice in
    50 years or more, he is worth listening to,” Kerry told CBS talk-
    show host David Letterman earlier this week.
    Explaining the recent ramping up of his campaign, Kerry said “a
    campaign grows, a presidential campaign is an enormous undertaking,
    suddenly you‘re building a multimillion dollar corporation.
    You grow and there are stages in it, we have fabulous people in
    place, nobody was fired, we just hired more people and brought in
    more talent,” he added.”

    ”The Clintonista “Coups.” At several critical junctures Kerry’s
    campaign (and
    the candidate himself), struggled to find sure footing. Following
    the missteps
    of August, Clinton veteran James Carville confronted Kerry campaign
    manager Mary
    Beth Cahill, telling her she had to step aside and let newly arrived
    Joe
    Lockhart run the campaign. So worked up, Carville began to cry,
    imploring
    Cahill: “You’ve got to let him do it.” Carville continued, “Nobody
    can gain
    power without someone losing power.” Carville threatened to go
    on “Meet the

    Cahill didn’t
    give effective control to Lockhart.”

    ”Former Reagan Navy Secretary and now Democratic Senate hopeful from
    Virginia James Webb is being accused of anti-Semitism for a flier
    produced against his opponent Harris Miller.
    By James Joyner
    Senate candidate James H. Webb, President Reagan’s former Navy
    secretary, was criticized by his Jewish opponent Friday over a
    campaign flier that depicted the opponent with a hooked nose and
    cash spilling from his pockets. The flier was intended for
    distribution among labor groups. It was titled “Miller the Job
    Killer,” referring to Webb’s opponent for the Democratic nomination
    in Tuesday’s primary, businessman Harris Miller.
    The flier, drawn in comic-book cartoon style, depicts Miller with a
    grotesquely hooked nose and cash overflowing from his suit pockets
    as he orders an underling to find ways to export U.S. jobs overseas.
    The flier refers to Miller as the “anti-Christ of outsourcing.”
    Miller called it “despicable.” “One of the things I hoped we would
    keep out of this campaign, because it has nothing to do with the
    campaign, is my religion and my background,” Miller said.” source:

    MONEY FROM THE AMERICAN MUSLIM ALLIANCE
    it is no wonder that the American Muslim Alliance chapter in
    Massachusetts held
    what it called a “successful fundraiser” for First Lady Hillary
    Clinton at the
    Park Plaza Hotel in Boston on June 13, 2000. AMA Massachusetts Chair
    Tahir Ali
    said afterwards, “We are attempting to send an important message to
    all AMA
    chapters: we must support all who have [Muslim] interests at heart,
    regardless
    of what part of the country they are running in.”
    EMERSON’S TESTIMONY
    According to Steve Emerson, a well-known investigative journalist
    specializing
    in militant Islamic organizations, the AMA’s leaders “have
    sanctioned terrorism,
    published anti-Semitic statements, and repeatedly hosted conferences
    that were
    forums for denunciations of Jews and exhortations to wage jihad.”
    Faced with
    pressure on the matter, Mrs. Clinton announced on Oct. 25th that she
    was
    returning the $50,000 in campaign contributions raised for her by
    the AMA. She
    failed to give a credible explanation as to why it took her more
    than four
    months from June 13th until October 25th until she saw it
    necessary to
    return the money.
    Mr. Emerson, in a recent Wall Street Journal article, noted: “As
    first lady,
    Mrs. Clinton began in 1996 an outreach program to Muslim leaders in
    the U.S.
    With America’s Muslim population at some six million and growing, an
    effort to
    include the community’s leaders in the mainstream of American
    politics is
    unquestionably a worthy undertaking. But curiously, nearly all of
    the leaders
    with whom Mrs. Clinton elected to meet came from Islamic
    fundamentalist
    organizations. A review of the statements, publications and
    conferences of the
    groups Mrs. Clinton embraced shows unambiguously that they have long
    advocated
    or justified violence. By meeting with these groups, the first lady
    lent them
    legitimacy as “mainstream” and “moderate”.”
    But this should not be unexpected, considering Mrs. Clinton’s past
    radical
    affiliations. During the 1980’s, ultra-liberal lawyer Hillary Rodham-
    Clinton
    served on the board of the New World Foundation, which funneled
    money to the
    Palestine Liberation Organization, at a time when the PLO was
    officially
    recognized by the United States as a terrorist organization.
    Similarly, in February 1996, Hillary hosted a reception at the White
    House for
    leaders of Hamas-supporting groups such as the American Muslim
    Council and the
    Council on American-Islamic Relations. And in January, 1998, Hillary
    hosted
    another White House reception honoring Muslim leaders and the Muslim
    Public
    Affairs Council who defended militant Islamic fundamentalism and
    also supported
    radical Islamic groups.
    THE REAL HILLARY
    This, then, is the real Hillary Rodham-Clinton. An ambitious woman
    willing to
    utter any banal cliche on behalf of “Israel’s security” to placate
    unaware New
    York Jewish voters, but one whose pre-Senate race record on Israel
    is appalling.
    It’s a record of supporting the terrorist PLO, even before the 1993
    signing of
    the first Oslo Agreement on the White House lawn, of ignoring
    blatant calumny
    heaped on Israel by Suha Arafat, of supporting the creation of a
    Palestinian PLO
    State, of hosting and legitimizing extremist Islamic groups in the
    United
    States. Most recently, it included taking campaign contributions
    from these very
    same evil, anti-Semitic organizations – until being caught with her
    hand in the
    extremist Islamic cookie jar. This is the very same Hillary Rodham-
    Clinton who
    now claims to be Israel’s friend.”

    ”Allen: Webb camp anti-Semitic
    BY JEFF E. SCHAPIRO
    TIMES-DISPATCH STAFF WRITER
    Thursday, September 21, 2006
    U.S. Sen. George Allen, R-Va., is accusing challenger Jim Webb of
    anti-Semitism for spotlighting Allen’s newly acknowledged Jewish
    ancestry on Democratic blogs.”There is a common thread that is
    running through the Webb campaign,” Allen campaign manager Dick
    Wadhams said yesterday. “It has a clear anti-Semitic overtone to it.”
    Webb’s press secretary, Kristian Denny Todd, dismissed the claim
    as “slash-and-burn campaign tactics” and a bid to “make George Allen
    a sympathetic figure by rallying his base against the big, bad
    media.”
    The Allen broadside followed the latest complication for his re-
    election effort: confirming he is part Jewish after angrily ducking
    a question on his heritage during a debate Monday with Webb.
    Allen said his maternal grandfather, an Italian jailed in Tunisia
    by the Nazis, was Jewish. Allen said he learned of his grandfather’s
    religion, in part, after recent discussions with his mother.

    Politics and Bedfellows An Age Old Story Told Once AgainWe do not know what to make of the gossip being circulated aboutlikely 2008Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton these days.It seemsstrange that material which appears to be damaging about her wouldsurface overtwo years before the 2008 Presidential Election. Yet such materialis surfacingall over the place these days. Perhaps it is relevant to her currentcampaignfor re-election to the US Senate in New York State where up untilrecently shehad been viewed as an odds on favorite to win re-election by a widemargin.That, however, was before the arab terrorist threats against ThePope began.”Mujahideen’s Army threatens Pope with suicide attackGeorge Conger and JPost staff, THE JERUSALEM POST Sep. 16, 2006As security was beefed up around Pope Benedict XVI on Saturdaynight, the Mujahideen’s Army movement in Iraq threatened to carryout a suicide attack against the Pope in revenge for his commentsabout Islam and jihad….Churches attacked in Gaza,(and in Judea andSamaria)…On a website used by rebel movements in Iraq, a messageposted by theMujahideen’s Army said members of the organization would “smash thecrosses inthe house of the dog from Rome.” European religious and politicalleaders havebacked the Pope in the wake of the Muslim protests over his academiclecture atRegensburg University Tuesday…”New York State is heavily Roman Catholic, as are many key states inPresidentialElectoral Politics, and in the 2006 race, where key US Senate racesin New YorkState, Pennsylvania, New Jersey,Connecticut and Rhode Island, andelsewhere,might easily be swayed by a shift in Roman Catholic voters away fromDemocrats,who are widely viewed to be appeasers of arab terrorists, if notallies of arabterrorists, towards Republicans, who are widely viewed as protectorsof Americaand the rest of the civilized world from the threat of arabterrorism.Though the name Arthur Turco is known to few Americans today, if theallegationsabout his romantic and political relationship with Hillary RodhamClinton in1969 when Hillary was at Yale turn out to be true Arthur Turco’sname mightbecome as much a household word as Monica Lewinsky’s name was in thelate 1990s.Unlike Monica Lewinsky however, Arthur Turco in 1969 was no starryeyed 20something intern being sexually used and abused by the most charmingPresidentof the United States ever to hold that office.Gerald Lefcourt, David Brothers, Abbie Hofmann, Dave Dellinger,WilliamKunstler, Jerry Rubin, and Arthur Turco can be seen at a BlackPanther Rally atFederal Court, in a photo taken on March 22nd, 1969. Arthur Turco isthe cleanshaven white man in the dark glasses,wearing a tie with his hand inthe pocketof his rain coat, standing behind bearded Jerry Rubin.You can see the photo in which Turco appears athttp://groups.yahoo.com/group/KnowTheEnemy/in the Birds of A Feather photo album athttp://ph.groups.yahoo.com/group/KnowTheEnemy/photosArthur Turco was the New York City based leader of a weird whitegroup calledTHE PATRIOTS in 1969. THE PATRIOTS were allied with THE BLACKPANTHERS and aPuerto Rican group called THE YOUNG LORDS in something called THERAINBOWCOALITION. This was a different group from the Jesse Jackson relatedRainbowCoalition group.THE PATRIOTS operated relatively openly from an office in far uptownManhattanbut reputedly also used one or more covert “Safe House” styleapartments in theCHELSEA section of Manhattan. Some of those “Safe House” styleapartments wereallegedly fortress like places,allegedly filled with heavy weaponsincludingexplosives, as well as handguns, and automatic weapons.Some alleged background on Black Panther Party attorney and ally,Arthur Turcomay be found athttp://www.citypaper.com/news/story.asp?id=11450which describes Arthur Turco as the “Panthers’ New Yorklawyer,Arthur Turco.”The article states that : “Caplan says he believes that thePanthers’ New Yorklawyer, Arthur Turco, was the ringleader in the commission of thiscrime. “Hewas apparently in the house when the torture and the murder tookplace and waspart of the conspiracy to kill and remove the body,”Below is an example of a post which dates back to the Bill Clintonera we founddescribing some of the story.”Back in 1969 a group of Black Panthers decided that a fellow blacknamed Alex Rackley needed to die. Rackley was a fellow Panthersuspected ofdisloyalty. Rackley was first tied to a chair. Once safelyimmobilizedhis’friends’tortured him for hours by, among other things, pouringboiling wateron him. When theygot tired of torturing Rackley, Black Panther member Warren Kimbotook Mr.Rackley outside and put a bullet in his head. Rackley’s bodywas laterfound floating in a river about 25 miles north of New Haven, Conn.Perhaps at this point you’re curious as to what happened to theseBlack Panthers. In 1977, that’s only eight years later, only one ofthe killerswas still in jail. The shooter, Warren Kimbro, managed to get ascholarship toHarvard. He later became an assistant dean at Eastern ConnecticutState College.Isn’t that something? As a ‘60s radical you can pump a bullet intosomeone’shead,and a few years later, in the same state, you can become anassistant college dean! Only in America! Erica Huggins was the ladywho servedthe Panthers by boiling the water for Mr.Rackley’s torture. Some years later Ms. Huggins was elected to aCalifornia School Board.How in the world do you think these killers got off soeasy? Maybe it was in some part due to the efforts of two people whocame to thedefense of the Panthers. These two people actually went so far as toshut downYale University with demonstrations in defense of the accused BlackPanthersduring their trial. One of these people was none other than Bill LanLee. Mr.Lee, orMr. Lan Lee, as the case may be, isn’t a college dean. He isn’t amember of a California School Board. He is now head of the U.S.JusticeDepartment’s Civil Rights Division.O.K., so who was the other Panther defender?Is this other notable Panther defender now a school board member? Isthis other Panther apologist now an assistant college dean? No,Neither! Theother Panther defender was, like Lee, a radical law student at YaleUniversityat the time. She is now known as The “smartest woman in the world.”She is noneotherthan…Hillary Rodham Clinton.”We checked Hillary’s official White House bio and found that:”In 1969, Hillary entered Yale Law School, where she served on theBoard of Editors of Yale Law Review and Social Action…”source:http://www.whitehouse.gov/history/firstladies/hc42.htmlWe also dug up the 1997 piece below on Bill Lan Lee”G.O.P Leader Says Nominee Will Be Halted November 10, 1997, MondayBy STEVEN A.

His distinguished military career and loyalty to theprinciples of MaoTse-tung were the basis for his rise to second position in theChinese Communistleadership. He was involved in an unsuccessful coup d’etat in 1971.”)We would like to know what, if anything, you have found about thisstory? Is there any truth to it at all? We do not know.Then there is the matter of the Balkan Wars of the 1990s. FamedJewish columnistA.M.Rosenthal of THE NEW YORK TIMES called Bill Clinton, who he hadbacked inthe 1992 Presidential race against then President George HerbertWalker Bush,BOMBER BILL because of Clinton’s prosecution of the Balkan Wars ofthe 1990s.In those wars some 5,000 Serbian civilians were slaughtered inGuernica like airraids. Many of the same targets in Serbia that were bombed by theLuftwaffe inWorld War Two were bombed by the Luftwaffe in 1999.Bill Clinton turned the US Airforce into AIR BIN LADEN, flyingmissions againstSerbians who were fighting against Osama bin Laden’s forces in theBalkans.Why would Bill Clinton, the former anti-war activist of the1960s,who haddemonstrated against the Vietnam War,wage war against Serbia asPresident of theUnited States in the 1990s?The 22nd Amendment to the US Constitution limits Presidential termsof office to2 terms. Bill Clinton was elected to those 2 terms and served them.His lastfull year in office was 2000, the year his wife, Hillary RodhamClinton waselected to the US Senate from New York State. He left office onJanuary 20th,2001.Many observers viewed the 2000 US Senate race in which she waselected from NewYork State as a stepping stone to the White House for Hillary RodhamClinton.In New York State winning state wide Republican candidates need thenominationof the New York State Republican Party to be augmented by thenominaton of theNew York State Conservative Party.Winning statewide without BOTH nominations is not an easy thing foranyRepublican candidate in New York State.The website of the New York State Conservative Party proudlyproclaims : “The1994 elections were a breakthrough for the Conservative Party as weprovided themargin of victory for Governor George E. Pataki with the 326,605votes cast onour line.”source:http://www.cpnys.org/history/history.htmlIn New York State the votes of candidates on for example theRepublican Partyline may be combined with votes for the same candidates received onfor examplethe New York State Conservative Party line.Thus winning the nomination of the New York State Conservative Partyis vital tomaking a successful statewide run for office in New York State.Things were not shaping up at all well for Rudy Guiliani, who wasthe odds onfavorite for the Republican nomination for the US Senate race in2000 againstHillary Rodham Clinton.”Giuliani at Fund-Raiser, but Not Conservative Party’sNovember 17, 1999, WednesdayBy DAVID M.

An editorial in itspublication, The Spotlight, pointed out that “the 112 issues orlegislative positions that Liberty Lobby has taken over the past 40years…shows that Pat Buchanan stands with us.” The predominantissuethey share is Holocaust revisionism, the spearhead of theinternational anti-Semitic movement. Buchanan used his syndicatedcolumn and his office as communications director in the Reagan WhiteHouse from 1981-1987 to assist pro-Nazi Eastern Europeanorganizationsin trying to block the denaturalization and deportation of KarlLinnas, John Demjanjuk, and at least seventeen others who had beencharged by the U.S. Justice Department’s Office of SpecialInvestigations or had been convicted in federal courts of concealingwar crimes in order to gain illegal entry into the U.S. The KarlLinnas Case In 1981 the Federal District Court in Westbury, NYstripped 67-year-old Karl Linnas of his citizenship for having liedtoimmigration officials thirty years earlier about his Nazi past.Linnas’s crimes, the judge said, “were such as to offend the decencyof any civilized society.” From 1941-43 Linnas had commanded a Naziconcentration camp at Tartu, Estonia, where he directed andpersonallytook part in the murder of thousands of men, women, and children whowere shot into anti-tank ditches. A 1986 federal appeals court upheldhis deportation order, ruling that the evidence against the defendantwas “overwhelming and largely uncontroverted.” Summarily rejectingthecourt’s findings because evidence had been obtained from the SovietUnion, Buchanan orchestrated a national media effort to exonerateLinnas, demanding that his citizenship be reinstated. He championedthe Linnas cause in his syndicated newspaper column and TV program”Crossfire,” and arranged for then U.S. Attorney General Edwin MeeseIII to meet with him and members of Eastern European organizationswhohailed Linnas as a hero. On March 31, l987, Menachem Rosensaft,founder of the International Network of Children of HolocaustSurvivors, wrote a New York Times Op-Ed piece calling for acongressional investigation to determine whether any Americanofficialor functionary had intervened on Mr. Linnas’s behalf. Buchananresponded by saying it was the Office of Special Investigations thatneeded to be investigated. “Let us get it all out in the open,” hewrote, “nothing un-American can live in the sunlight.” AttorneyGeneral Meese delayed the deportation of Linnas as long as possible,all the while searching for a haven. After sixteen countries hadrefused, Panama agreed to accept Linnas “on humanitarian grounds.”News of the decision prompted Rosensaft and others to intercede withPanamanian officials in Washington, who told them that theirgovernment had not been informed of Linnas’s wartime atrocities.Panama withdrew its offer and issued a statement saying that “ourcountry and our Government reject and condemn the crimes committed byfascists.” On April 20, 1987, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to heara final appeal. At that point Meese was legally bound to comply withthe deportation order. Linnas was flown to the Soviet Union and threemonths later died in a prison hospital while awaiting trial.”http://uahc.org/rjmag/1096ca.htmlThe obvious question came to mind. Was the potential third partyDioGuardi 2000 Senate candidacy, which could have guaranteed Hillarythe US Senate seat from New York a “big payoff” for the Clintons forthe 1999 pro-Albanian Balkan war against Serbia which saw Kosovostolen from Serbia?http://aacl.com/indexmain.htmlis the url of a group which describes itself at that website as”the Albanian American Civic League. The Civic League was foundedby former Congressman Joseph DioGuardi and aboard of Albanian Americans in 1989 as the only registeredlobby in Washington, DC, representing the concerns andinterests of the Albanian people.Pay close attention to the phrase “living side by side in” found inthe quote below, and note how it has since been used by advocates ofa so-called Two State Solution, which envisages a so-called “palestinian” state “living side by side in” so-called “peace” with Israel.In reality the so-called Two StateSolution is more like Hitler’s infamous FINAL SOLUTION, as it isreally a Two Step or Two Stage plan, with the first step being getIsrael to hand over everything it will without total war, and thenwage total war against Israel from the land Israel hands over todestroy the rest of Israel.The self-described”purpose of the Civic League is to further the human rights and thenational cause of the divided nation of more than seven millionAlbanians living side by side in the Balkans in Albania, Kosova,western Macedonia, southeastern Montenegro, Presheve, Medvegje,Bujanovc (southern Serbia), and Chameria (northern Greece). Bybringing the political perspectives of 400,000 Albanian Americans tothe US Government, the civic League works to end the repressionand oppression of Albanians living under hostile Slavic Communistregimes in the Balkans and to preserve the culture, identity andhuman rights of Albanians throughout the world.”While you are digesting that quote, which sounds to me to be morethan a bit like the propaganda sprouted by the nazis about theso-called “Sudetenland”http://www.humboldt.edu/~rescuers/book/Chlup/chluplinks/sudeten.htmlhttp://motlc.wiesenthal.org/albums/palbum/p02/a0133p5.htmlhttp://www.humboldt.edu/~rescuers/book/Chlup/chluplinks/munich.htmlhttp://www.humboldt.edu/~rescuers/book/Chlup/czechcon.htmland other places inhabited by Germans and others which used theGerman population as a pretext for annexation and in some cases warby Germany.Saddam did the same thing when he move arabs into Kurdish sectionsof so-called Iraq.Syria has moved a million so-called “civilian” FIFTH COLUMNISTS intoLebanon, a nation which numbers under four million people, notcounting those million Syrian FIFTH COLUMNISTS.NATO bombed Belgrade TV repeatedly, after Belgrade TVstarted to show the comedic film “Wag the Dog” which is about a USPresident who starts an Albanian War while he is in the midst of asex scandal.Ken Starr, where are you now that we really do need you? (Ken Starrwas the anti-Clinton prosecutor who got nowhere in his attempts tooust Bill Clinton from the Presidency.)Some more thoughts from a different source are quoted below:”Fri, 2 Jul 1999 From: SendMeHack@aol.com SendMeHack at aol.comVOICE OF THE GRUNTSPECIAL REPORTFROM BEN WORKS BUYING AN INTERVENTION:KOSOVO AND ALBANIAN PAC MONEY IN CONGRESS By Benjamin Works,Director,The Strategic Issues Research Institute Hack and I, along with aselect group of others, have been at war with the KLA over its heroinand terrorist connections. We also knew something about how politicalmoney bought this war policy. Here’s the story. Back in 1995,
    late inthe Bosnian war, I got a reference to a 1986 Senate Resolutionproposed by Senator Bob Dole of Kansas, decrying Yugoslavian officialoppression of the Albanian population of Kosovo-that’s 1986, when theAlbanian Autonomous government was still fully operational. JosephDioGuardi, a New York Republican, sponsored the companion HouseResolution, both of which never emerged from committee. I got a copyof that Senate Resolution Nr. 150 from the Congressional Register ofJune 19, 1986 and then let it sit in my file for a long time, whilethe NATO occupation of Bosnia appeared to keep things calm.Meanwhile, Bob Dole managed to lose the 1996 Presidential Election,then vigorously supported Mr. Clinton’s year-by-year extensions forkeeping some 6900 US soldiers in Bosnia.As the KLA insurrection inKosovo reached civil war levels, I began to think about thatresolution and how it misrepresented history. I had done considerablereading on the origins of the Yugoslav conflicts, pulling WashingtonPost, New York Times and other reports from the 1980s, bearing onKosovo and the collapse of the Federative Republic’s communistgovernment under the pressure of ethnic-nationalism.Well, pieces fit together showing that all along it has been theethnicnationalist fascist losers of World War II in Croatia, Bosnia andKosovo whohave been exploiting the political process in Germany and the UnitedStates.Their goal has been to effect the division of Yugoslavia and thecleansing ofSerbian populations from their territories, while purportingthat “GreaterSerbia” was the menace to European security and not the post-fascist “GreaterCroatia” and “Greater Albania.”Survivors of the Croat Ustashe movement in southern Germany begantheir work in the 1960s, but Joseph DioGuardi must be given creditfor a sustained campaign to influence Congress beginning in themid-1970s. DioGuardi, an Albanian American whose ancestors came froman Albanian transplant community in the heel of Italy, sat inCongress for several years in the mid-1980s as a ConservativeRepublican from New York’s Westchester County, but creating aGreater Albania was his agenda as a map on his website shows(www.aapac.com).”His Political ActionCommittee (PAC) activities are easy to follow from 1988 on. Whatmakes the PAC and individual contributions to campaigns moreinteresting is the demonstrated connection between the Kosovo HeroinMafia, its “pizza connection” distribution (“inherited” from theGambino crime family) and money-laundering networks, and the numberof pizzaria owner-contributors listed in DioGuardi’s filings. TheCroats and Albanians came up with big pots of laundered money, thenspread it around selectively, with American politicians helping topersuade other members in Congress.I have indications of a political alliance between DioGuardi and BobDole going as far back as the early 1970s, but have not yet got allthe evidence in hand. What I do have is sufficient to reachtentative conclusions about how foreign policy, in a democracy, canbe “bought”-that is precisely what happened in the case of theKosovo Air War. In early 1987, kicking off his 1988 bid to wrest theGOP nomination from then-vice president George Bush, Dole received$1.2 million from Albanian American supporters in New York City,while DioGuardi received $50,000 at the same dinner.I expect the funding trail goes back further, at least to Dole’s 1976campaign.It certainly continued from 1987 through to the present.As the collapse of Yugoslavia loomed, the Croatian and Albanianlobbies continued their campaign:Defense & Foreign Affairs Strategic Policy, Mar 31, 1993 issue,reported as much as $50 million was larded around Capitol Hill in atwo-year period which saw the defeat of George Bush and led to BobDole’s control of the Republican party: The United States Congress,still reeling from a series of financial scandals involvingrepresentatives and senators, is now bracing for a new problem: themassive financial “contributions” which have been made to electionfunds of politicians by Croatian sources over the past two to threeyears.One Congressional investigator told Defense & Foreign AffairsStrategic Policy that the donations and expenditures on Washingtonlobbying by the Croatians over the past two years “could well exceed$50-million.””Much of this came directly from Croatian lobbyists,and some from Croatian American businessmen “Many of the campaigncontributions have been recorded legally,” the investigator said,”but many are questionable. But what is more important is that therehas been a pervasive attempt to push the United States along a linedefined by foreign powers-Croatia and Germany-and it has not beensubtle. Elected officials are being told to either support theCroatian line or face either a removal of funding or are told thatfunding will be given to their opponents. Or they are literallybribed into supporting the Croatian line.This was going on long before Croatia even made its open bid forrecognition as an independent state.” Now, as to individualcontributions, there are campaign contribution limits onindividuals, then there are Political Action Committees(PACs), “Soft Money” contributed to the parties and fed back tocandidates, and there is the time-honoredcustom of passing bundles of hundred dollar bills in brown paperbags to favored candidates. Federal Election Commission (FEC)records are on-line (http://www.tray.com/fecinfo/)and I have been able retrieve records for Joseph DioGuardi’s PACsgoing back to the 1988 election cycle, and have also tested BobDole’s 1996 Campaign and Liddy Dole’s Campaign-2000.It is all there in the lists of candidates and contributors. Inparticular, most of the Congressmen speaking loudest against Serbiaand Serbs are those receiving money from DioGuardi’s PAC. Some havesimply been beguiled,others may be more disingenuous.Recipients come from both sides of the aisle but are mostly membersof the House or Senate foreign relationscommittees…These records do not reveal monster sums of money, butdemonstrate the tip of the iceberg, where “soft money,” individualdeclared contributions and bags full of $100 bills also find theirway to select candidates.It is clear that Bob Dole and Joe DioGuardi, in league with Croatand Bosnian fascist emigrees, worked very effectively to set up USforeign policy to dismantle Yugoslavia and ruin the Serb people.They have succeeded admirably because they were organized andpersistent, while their opponents were disorganized and, ultimately,outnumbered by the overwhelming flood of media propaganda.Now, the US taxpayer is on the hook for Billions of Dollars, whileour servicepersonnel will be tied down for years in Bosnia and Kosovo,againattempting thekind of nation building that failed sospectacularly in Somalia and Haiti.

As bothcongressman and senator, Torricelli has championed the cause of arevolutionary Iranian group, the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK), identifiedby the U.S. State Department as a terrorist organization. ManyIranian-born MEK sympathizers have given Torricelli money ($136,000,according to one estimate), including $1,000 from Canada’s chief MEKorganizer, who wrote her check to Torricelli from her new home inWashington a week after an Ottawa court upheld her deportation,according to The American Spectator. Torricelli, in turn,
    sponsoredseveral resolutions and letters supporting the group as a “democraticalternative” to the Muslim fundamentalist regime and protesting U.S.sanctions against it-the Mujahedin advocacy group in America, theNational Council of Resistance, was labeled an “alias for the MEK” bythe State Department and barred from receiving any funds to operateonU.S. soil. The State Department is on solid ground. Although itportrays itself as a democratic grass-roots opposition, the MEKkilledU.S. military attachés in the 1970s and called for restrictions onJewish businesses; its military wing is based in armed camps in Iraq,backed by Saddam Hussein. In the past two years, it has openlyclaimedcredit for the killing of three high-ranking members of the Iraniangovernment, according to congressional testimony by then-AssistantSecretary of State Martin Indyk. Fears about Iranian terrorist-linkeddonors even led Torricelli’s staff to joke among themselves about whowould go outside to “start the car to see if it blows up,” a sourcerecalls.- Torricelli has also managed to appeal to organizations withvirulent anti-Semitic positions. In 1993, for instance, he was thekeynote speaker at a banquet co-sponsored by the United Associationfor Studies and Research (UASR), an organization identified byanti-terrorism experts and Israeli intelligence officials as thepolitical front for the Hamas terrorist group. Torricelli sat on thedais next to Ahmed Bin Yousef, the head of UASR, who champions theHamas cause. When attacked for his appearance at the banquet duringhis Senate campaign, Torricelli claimed in a news conference that hedidn’t know that the UASR was a sponsor or that it was tied to Hamas.Apparently he missed the front-page story in The New York Timesseveral months earlier that exposed its alleged terroristconnections.Torricelli is endlessly creative in trolling for support from ethniccommunities. He founded a congressional Pakistani caucus and told adinner hosted by a Pakistani-American PAC in 1996 exactly what theywanted to hear: “Pakistan cannot be intimidated into acceptingnuclearnonproliferation as was attempted by the U.S. Congress.”Clinton raises money for Sen.

Cloyes married Joseph DioGuardi in June 1998 according tothematerial about her excerpted from below in which she is describedas “BalkanAffairs Adviser” to the Albanian American Civic League,whosePresident is JosephDioGuardi, which states that :”In 1983, she coauthored a bookentitled To Workand To Love with German political theologian Dorothee Soelle andjoined thestaff of The Seabury Press as an editor. Following the closure ofthe house in1984, she became marketing director and editorial consultant inBlack andwomen’s studies at Orbis Books.In 1986, she joined the staff of Lawrence Hill & Company, anoffshoot of thebreakup of Hill & Wang, as associate publisher. The pressspecialized in AfricanAmerican and African studies, the Middle East, women’s studies, andcontroversial domestic and international political issues. WhenLarry Hill diedin 1988, she took over the house and was its publisher until the endof 1995.Some of the noteworthy titles that she published are The Politics ofHeroin: CIAComplicity in the Global Drug Trade by Alfred W. McCoy, Assata: AnAutobiographyby Assata Shakur, Ghosts in Our Blood: With Malcolm X in Africa,England, andthe Caribbean by Jan Carew, My Friend, the Enemy by Uri Avnery, andM.I.A. orMythmaking in America by H. Bruce Franklin.In 1995, she published Yugoslavia’s Ethnic Nightmare, the first bookon thecauses and far-reaching consequences of the Balkan conflict writtenfrom theperspective of Bosnian Muslim, Croatian, Serbian, and Macedonianjournalists whoopposed the war inside the former Yugoslavia. That year she becamethe BalkanAffairs Adviser to the Albanian American Civic League. She has sincewritten andlectured widely about the Albanian dimension of the Balkan conflictand madeeight trips to the region.Cloyes proposed the first Congressional hearing on the Albaniandimension of theBalkan conflict. Following the hearing in February 1995, whichincludedrepresentatives fromall the Albanian lands in the former Yugoslavia, she and CivicLeague PresidentJoseph DioGuardi traveled with Yugoslav dissident Mihaljo Mihaljovto Macedoniaat the invitation of Albanian leaders there to monitor the reopeningof theAlbanian-language University of Tetova. The Macedonian governmentattacked theuniversity on the morning of their departure, killing a student,woundinghundreds, and jailing the professors. In September of that year, shetraveled toTirana with DioGuardi and Congressman Benjamin Gilman, chair of theHouseCommittee on InternationalRelations, to meet with then President Sali Berisha and to Istanbulto make thecase for thethe independence of Kosova at the National Press center and at theUniversity ofMarmara.Cloyes has testified before Congress at two historic turning pointsin the lifeof the Albanian nation. In July 1996, she testified on behalf of theState ofAlbania before the House Committee on International Relations andexposed therole of Nicholas Gage of the Panepirotic Federation and the AlbanianCommunistsin attempting to overthrow the democratically elected government ofSaliBerisha. In 1998, she testified in support of U.S. troop deploymentin Kosova,following Bob Dole, Jean Kirkpatrick, and Henry Kissinger.In February 1998, after the Serbian army attacked Drenice, Cloyesworked withCNN to gain more complete coverage of the crisis in Kosova. InMarch, she andDioGuardi shifted the focus of a Congressional hearing with U.S.Balkan envoyRobert Gelbard from Bosnia to Kosova, and positioned the questionsthat forcedGelbard to retract his earlier depiction of the KLA as a “terrorist”organization. In August of that year, she published two majorarticles on U.S.foreign policy in the Balkans: “The Agony of Kosova” and “PresidingoverGenocide: The Shame of the West.” Cloyes is the author of the CivicLeague’sOctober 1999 public declaration, entitled “Resolving the AlbanianNationalQuestion,” which examines the internal and external factors thatstand in theway of creating a free and independent Kosova and bringing a justand lastingpeace to the Balkans.With the start of the NATO bombing campaign against Serbia in March1999, Cloyesand DioGuardi appeared separately and together on more than 50 radioand TVbroadcasts. Since the war ended in June 1999, they have made threetrips toKosova to report back to Congress on postwar conditions.Cloyes and DioGuardi were married in June 1998.”SOURCE:http://aacl.com/shirley2.htmlIf the name Assata Shakur in the bio of Mrs. Joseph DioGuardi aboverang anybells with you it is likely that you recall that Assata Shakur isthe alias ofJoanne Chesimard.

On 13 October 2003—some 32 years later—the manresponsible was found guilty of his murder in Fulton County SuperiorCourt.Freddie Hilton (51) was convicted of murder in the long-ago death ofJimmyGreene in a case prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Al Dixon,SeniorAssistant District Attorney Michele McCutcheon, and Senior AssistantDistrictAttorney Peggy Katz. Atlanta Police Detective Jimmy Rose and SeniorInvestigatorM.C. Cox of the District Attorney’s Office investigated the case.JudgeStephanie Manis will sentence Hilton on 10 November, and he faces apossibledouble life sentence in prison.At the time of the murder, Hilton was a member of an organizationknown as the”Black Liberation Army,” a militant group infamous for attacks on lawenforcement officers in New York City and across the country. Ahandful of thegroup’s members had come to Atlanta after breaking away from theBlack PantherParty in the early 1970s. Hilton was among these.Officer Greene, engaged to be married and the father of one infantdaughter, wassitting in his vehicle at a gas station at the intersection ofMemorial Driveand Boulevard when he was approached by Hilton and his now-dead co-conspiratorTwyman Meyers. Hilton shot Officer Greene three times at closerange, stole hisrevolver and badge, and fled the scene. A witness saw Greene slumpedover in thefront seat and soon realized he had been shot. Greene died two hourslater.Several other former BLA members testified at the trial that Hiltonand Meyersreturned to the group’s residence where the pair bragged of thekilling.Shortly after the incident, Atlanta police found a witness who saidhe heardHilton confess to the killing, but then-District Attorney LewisSlaton feltthere was not enough evidence to bring formal charges. So the storyendedthere…or so it seemed.In early 2001, Detective Rose received a call from New York CityPoliceDetective Chris Karolkowski who had come across Hilton as a suspectin a childmolestation case and soon discovered that he had been the primesuspect inGreene’s murder. Rose soon re-opened the case, and, with the help ofInvestigator Cox, a Grand Jury indicted Hilton for the murder inJuly of lastyear. (Incidentally, Rose and Cox received the National Associationof PoliceOrganizations’ highest honor last year for their work on the case.)Hilton, whohad changed his name to Kamau Sadiki and was now working intelecommunicationsin New York, was brought back to Atlanta to face trial.Aside from justice for Officer Greene, perhaps the most positiveaspect of thispainful incident was the re-uniting of Greene’s long-estrangeddaughter MelodyAdams (now 34) of North Carolina with aunts and uncles she had neverknown.Hearing about the trial in the news, Adams traveled to Atlanta tosit in on thetrial and soon revealed her identity to other family members inattendance. Afamily long-separated by a brutal crime was now re-united.”SOURCE:http://www.fultonda.org/featuredarticle/30years.htmThe Albanian Connection; As Italians Move Up, a New Group Does thePizza and Pasta source: THE NEW YORK TIMESMore information.

Not all of these sex slaves’ clients aresoldiers andinternational workers, but their presence has greatly fuelled thedemand forbrothels in the Balkans. Certainly, the volume of trafficking,which picked upin the spring of 1999 as soon as Nato troops arrived in Macedonia inanticipation of military strikes against Yugoslavia [1], has greatlyincreasedsince the Kosovo war. Finally, the West has helped to create thelink betweenthe supply and the demand by supporting, in the Kosovo war, the veryAlbanianMafia which now controls this market. The fact that there is somuch reportingnow on the matter of sex slaves may be an indication that the powersthat be inthe West are beginning to ditch those whom they portrayed during thespring of1999 as passive and innocent victims….It is clear that the Albanian Mafia controls prostitution in Italy,and that avery large number of prostitutes there are effectively slaves.Although not allthe girls in Italy are from Moldova – many come from Nigeria andAlbania – ithas been affirmed by one of the leading authorities on prostitutionthat theyare kept in captivity. “All the women currently on the streets (ofItaly) areslaves. The proof is that the Nigerians, the Albanians, theRomanians and thewomen from Eastern European countries all have their passports takenaway bytheir pimps. There is not one metre of street in which prostitutionis notcontrolled by criminals,” according to Don Oreste Benzi, a priest inVerona whohas founded a charity which works with prostitutes. Benzi goeson, “TheAlbanians operate in family clans, in ‘joint ventures’ with theMafia in EasternEurope and Italy. No new pimp can start operating in Italy withou
    tpaying apercentage to the person who already controls the territory. Anymistakes arepunished by death. For the Albanians, vendetta is second nature:the conceptof forgiveness does not exist.”[7] According to Benzi’s charity, theAssociation of the Community of Pope John XXIII, 48% of theprostitutes in Italyare from Eastern Europe; 35%-40% are minors (from 12 to 18 yearsold); and 26%have been kidnapped and taken from their countries of origin byforce.[8]source:http://www.bhhrg.org/CountryReport.asp?ReportID=160&CountryID=16Hillary Clinton has also masqueraded as someone concerned aboutChildren’sRights. Once again, the Balkan Wars perpetrated by her husband BillClintonactually harmed children too.”Sexual exploitation of childrenAn especially appalling aspect of the trade in human beings is thesexualexploitation of children. BHHRG representatives interviewed MarianaPetersel,the Director of Save the Children in Moldova, whose organisation hasstarted tohouse and rehabilitate young women and girls who have been forcedinto sexslavery. The youngest victim with which they have dealt was nineyears old.260 victims of sex slavery have been housed and helped by Save theChildrenduring 2000.
