Republicans and former Republicans like me had prayed for deliverance from Clinton and his Democrats in 2000, when Gore won the popular election and Bush just squeaked into office. Immediately noticeable to our strain of staunch grassroots conservatives of Republican persuasion, were the Bush political proclivities of a big tax and spend, war-declaring liberal. The only qualification to this assessment was the Bush tax cut. Even true conservatives could see the folly of cutting taxes while initiating scream and burn spending in the form of a highly unnecessary and costly war.
The most disturbing dimension of this election is not just the outcome, but also the huge and unprecedented voter turnout. Of course, the numbers are not as yet finalized as of this writing, and as far as I am concerned, no real surprise. But the huge turnout is what is so disturbing. And then to have that turnout give Bush the best popular vote advantage ever!
A huge turnout should have been an indication of the momentum created by a virtual universal recognition and rejection by American voters of Bush's policies that have put our nation at so grave an economic and political risk. What were American voters thinking? And then, the answer becomes painfully clear: Americans weren't thinking, or simply are so ignorant of real world events that any intellectual inquiry is completely impossible. It can easily be concluded that their actions represented only a meaningless, perfunctory exercise of their "right to vote." Something is wrong, something needs to be done to correct it, and therefore, the need and right to vote must be exercised.
The policies of the Bush White House include putting the interests of Israel before our own. This culminated in the war with Iraq and the resultant skyrocketing prices for gasoline. The war has caused a huge increase in deficit spending and resulted in a national debt of $7.4 trillion. The increased price of oil is endangering profits of American industry and creating uncertainty both on Wall Street and internationally as regards the strength of our dollar abroad. The worsening war in Iraq virtually guarantees a serious ratcheting up of deadly terrorist activity against Americans both abroad and on our own soil. Let us, for a moment, carefully examine the latter outcome that will be our legacy as a result of the huge voter turnout favoring Bush.
The only accurate assessment of the most focused-upon issue of this election, the war on terror, was honestly addressed by only one professional politician: Osama bin Laden. Bin Laden answered every question honestly that any American could ever ask as regards the 9-11 terrorist attack. He even answered the question regarding why he attacked innocent American civilians instead of American military targets. For it was our military, collaborating with the Israeli military, that brought so much terror and death to his people. But as usual, the chief causative factor of American ignorance as regards world affairs and America's secret internal politics is our mainstream media. Isn't it ironic now how this dumbing down of Americans by our media caused their favorite, Senator John Kerry, to be defeated?
When bin Laden offered his "fireside chat" to America, courtesy of the professional news service Al-Jazeera, the latter reduced the 18-minute broadcast to key points transmuting it to a four-minute broadcast. But our media couldn't resist diluting and sabotaging it such that this vital news release was in effect no news at all. The most important point Osama made was this: "Whereas thinking people, when disaster strikes, make it their priority to look for its causes, in order to prevent it happening again. But I am amazed at you. Even though we are in the fourth year after the events of September 11th, Bush is still engaged in distortion, deception and hiding from you the real causes. And thus, the reasons are still there for a repeat of what occurred."
Although ABC TV carried bin Laden's primary message, which was to explain why the 9-11 terrorist attacks were carried out against US, offering the reason as our alliance with Israel that continues to kill innocent civilian Muslim men, women and children, the CBS Evening News broadcast on Friday evening, October 29th, never allowed the word "Israel" to be mentioned in its newscast even once. In fact, go to the CBS website and see if you can find the word "Israel" even now! A subsequent 1300 word article in The New York Times mentioned "Israel" only twice at its very end and not at all in any context associating 9-11 and Israel. This confirms the dangerous control of our news and information by American Zionists.
Since most Americans still get their news from The New York Times-controlled TV "news" media, and since the advent and power of talk radio and FOXNews to counter the "liberal" mainstream media has gained such momentum, a polarized yet uninformed electorate has been created as a result. This is precisely why a huge voter turnout resulted in a victory for Bush as opposed to the media's choice of Democrat John Kerry. Dan Rather's forged documents, and Walter Cronkite's absurd comments regarding bin Laden's tape as being arranged for by Karl Rove, didn't help matters at all. And the Jayson Blair/Walter Duranty albatross around the neck of the Times is a stigma they will be unable to shake for some time, if ever.
Osama bin Laden offered specifically in his broadcast: "I say to you, Allah knows that it had never occurred to us to strike the towers. But after it became unbearable and we witnessed the oppression and tyranny of the American/ Israeli coalition against our people in Palestine and Lebanon, it came to my mind. The events that affected my soul in a direct way started in 1982 when America permitted the Israelis to invade Lebanon and the American Sixth Fleet helped them in that. This bombardment began and many were killed and injured and others were terrorized and displaced. I couldn't forget those moving scenes, blood and severed limbs, women and children sprawled everywhere. Houses destroyed along with their occupants and high rises demolished over their residents, rockets raining down on our home without mercy."
The power and the overarching control of our government by a Zionist cabal controlling the Pentagon, and the power of the "Jewish lobby" that is AIPAC, which reigns supreme over both the White House and Congress, are what constitutes the real motive behind Osama's direct appeal to the American people. Clearly, Osama, and probably many in the world, were looking for this election to effectively renounce the policies of Bush and the Pentagon. Not only hasn't this happened but the huge voter turnout in favor of Bush will now send a message to bin Laden that there is no guilt in attacking American civilians directly. Sadly, the American people do not understand this.
The Department of Homeland Security, the TSA, the USA PATRIOT Act, and the airport strip searches will not protect US, not when the Bush administration's secret deal with Mexican President Vicente Fox for sprawling open borders allowing illegal aliens entry, as well as the relaxed monitoring of incoming truck shipments under NAFTA, make US so completely vulnerable to terrorist infiltration. In spite of the twenty-mile limit, it's only a matter of time before Bush will saddle American highways with NAFTA goodies for the Mexican trucking industry, making US even more vulnerable to illegally imported nuclear devices.
The bin Laden address directly to the American people asked naively for Americans to renounce its government while at the same time explaining precisely why we should expect a higher level of terrorist activity in the future. Neither our government nor our media are doing US any favors by not fully reporting this to alert US of the danger.
Democrats had a strong frontrunner in Howard Dean, whose campaign was torpedoed by the Zionist media. His only threat to Israel was a desire for America to play the role of an honest broker for peace in the Mid East by not taking one side over the other. The characterization of Israel as a ruthless fascist regime was offered by no less than one of the world's greatest geniuses, Albert Einstein. Does anyone dare to smear him with the term "anti-Semite?"
Both Democratic and Republican parties have totally lost sight of their primary responsibility to the American people, not only in terms of what is in their best interests, but also as regards our roots in constitutional, republican government. The only dimension of progressiveness this displays is our growing serfdom and dependency on the political party temporarily controlling our government.
administration has indeed received a mandate to continue on the same path.
Can the invasion of Iran, by either the US or Israel, be far off? Can
a universal military draft be far off either? What about a strengthening
Euro versus a weakening dollar? What about the growing capitalism in China
and India, and the loss of domestic jobs here? What does America have
to offer the free and growing global market? As far as the rest of the
world is concerned, our offerings seem to be increasingly limited to war,
death, plunder and destruction.
