Anti-American, Anti-Israel Signs From Oct. 28 S.F. ANSWER Rally

From the Lefist website IndyBay.org, here are photos of protesters who attended an anti-America, anti-Israel rally in San Francisco on Oct. 28. The rally was sponsored by International ANSWER, front group for the Stalinist Worker's World Party.

Is there any doubt whose side these people are on?

Sheehan Supporter to Mother of Fallen Soldier: "Did they go out & kill & rape & sodomize some children in front of their parents?"

Parents of soldiers in Iraq came to counter Cindy Sheehan last night at Fresno State, stating Sheehan did not speak for them.

Among them was Robin Butterfield of Clovis, whose son, Anthony, was killed on July 29th.

Video from KMPH-TV in Fresno (click here) shows one pathetic little creep from Peace Fresno mocking these parents.

"How many people lost someone in the military? Well his heart. Did they go out and kill and rape and sodomize some children in front of their parents?" said the terrorist apologist from Peace Fresno.

These so-called "peace activists" claim they "support the troops but not the war." This video proves that statement is nothing but a lie. Not only do they hate the military, they hate this country.

Politicizing Disease, Hurricanes, Terrorism etc.--Democrats Need A New Party Mascot

In their desperate effort to gain power at any cost, there's no issue in America that the Democrat Party will not exploit for political purposes.

Look at the list. The death and destruction from Hurricane Katrina was used to blast President Bush and Republicans as cold-hearted racists who caused destructive hurricanes due to global warming.

The "Jersey Girls" were used to blame Bush (not the terrorists) for the deaths of their husbands on 9/11. Likewise, Cindy Sheehan was used to blame Bush (not the terrorists) for the death of her son, Casey in Iraq. When they're not bashing the military, Democrat politicians have used flag draped coffins in campaign ads. The Democrat Lt. Governor of Pennsylvania, Catherine Baker Knoll, invited herself to the funeral of a soldier killed in Iraq to express opposition of the war to the bereaved family.

Diseases and government funding of embryonic stem cell research is another exploited issue. Remember the utter hatred and contempt Democrats had towards the great Ronald Reagan? His death from Alzheimer's disease was used by Hanoi John Kerry to politicize embryonic stem cell research. Democrats even had Reagan's son, Ron, speak at their 2004 National Convention.

Reagan wasn't the only person used by Democrats to promote an agenda. John "Breck Girl" Edwards outdid Benny Hinn in the phony faith healer department, stating if John Kerry were elected President, people like actor Christopher Reeve would walk again.

Now comes the advertisement for Democrat candidates by actor Michael J. Fox in several swing states. Fox, who suffers from Parkinson’s Disease, implies that Republicans who oppose government funding of embryonic stem cell research are opposed to curing Parkinson's Disease.

That is absurd!

But the bigger lie is that stem cell research is not illegal in the United States. The issue for Democrats is the government funding of the embryonic type of research. Limits have been placed on this for understandably ethical reasons. Quite simply, it amounts to a destruction of human life. It would also be a government boondoggle to the abortion industry.

Yet this has become another issue for Democrats and their PR flaks in the MSM to use in bashing Republicans and Conservatives. Rush Limbaugh has simply pointed out, from Fox's own book, how the actor has not taken his medicine for appearances testifying before Congress. However, the liberal MSM twisted one line from Rush's commentary to create the illusion Rush had personally attacked Fox, which he did not. I'm sure liberal smear merchants, like David Crock of the George Soros funded Media Matters, had a hand in passing this talking point on to their MSM allies.

The point is, liberals use people like Fox, the Jersey Girls, Sheehan, et al, in order to present "unassailable" victims to politicize tragedy, death and disease.

With that in mind, I would like to present this proposition to the Democrat Party. Perhaps it is time to change your party mascot, as the donkey is no longer an appropriate symbol of your party. May I suggest this as your new party mascot. (see below)

Our Proposed new Democrat Party mascot, the buzzard

IJ Watch -- Cheerleaders for Democrat Majority

I told friends in during the 2004 election that the mainstream media was so biased towards Democrats that even a deaf, dumb and blind person could spot it.

Two years later, the MSM is so biased towards Democrats even the dead could recognize it.

Case in point is the Marin Independent Journal, the local propaganda sheet for the Democratic/anti-American Left.

On Sunday's front page was a New York Slimes story entitled "Guarded but Optimistic, Democrats are Daring to Believe." In Tuesday's paper was the banner story from AP "If Democrats Take Control..."

Why is the IJ so giddy about a Congress led by Dirty Harry Reid and Nasty Nancy Bella-Pelosi (a.k.a. The King & Queen of Mean)? Here's why. The subhead on the jump page states "New Congress would seek reduction of U.S. role in Iraq, probe origins of war." Code words for impeachment.

The IJ, like most MSM outlets, the Leftist grassroots and the Democratic party want nothing more than the defeat of our armed forces so they can claim a political victory over a president they hate with a vitriolic passion.

The results would be destructive for America, in a dangerous time.

Bush Assassination Movie Coming to Rafael Theatre

The outrageous "movie" "Death of a President," which depicts the assassination of George W. Bush in October 2007, is opening at the Rafael Theatre in downtown San Rafael October 27th.

The film opened at the Toronto International Film Festival and won the Fipresci Prize from international critics "for the audacity with which it distorts reality, to reveal a larger truth." Jim Emerson wrote a glowing review on Roger Ebert.com, calling the film "seamless, intelligent and maybe even necessary to an understanding of George W. Bush's role in the world today, and his place in the wider scope of history."

Two major movie theatre companies have refused to show "Death of a President." Regal Theatre spokesman Dick Westerling said, "We do not feel it is appropriate to portray the future assassination of a president, therefore we do not intend to program this film at any of our theaters."

To some extent, there is a "larger truth" to this movie. It shows the psychotic hatred and paranoia of the Left towards President Bush and his administration. The fact that movie theatres like the Rafael and others shows not just the lack of respect for President Bush, but also for the Office of President of the United States itself. Would there be the same glowing critical response if someone was sick enough to make a movie about the murder of, lets say, a prominent gay leader or a liberal icon? I doubt it.

The Left loves to lecture about "love and tolerance" while denouncing "hate." Movies like "Death of a President" illustrate instead that they are nothing but hypocrites who don't "practice what they preach."

FOX News Rejects Move America Forward Ad Critical of Clinton

This is unbelieveable! FOX news must have developed a yellow streak after the liberal fallout from the Clinton interview.

From WorldNetDaily.

"A new television ad that is part of a campaign by the Move America Forward organization to counter ex-President Bill Clinton's recent assertions about his administration's efforts to combat Islamic terrorism has been rejected by Fox News.

"Fox News Channel told Move America Forward that they had decided under no circumstances would they allow the organization to broadcast the ad," Debra Argel Bastian, the group's military outreach coordinator, said.

A spokesman for Fox News told WND that the advertisement made a claim about Clinton that wasn't documented, so the ad wasn't accepted. "


Yet, according to the story, CNN & CNN Headline News have agreed to run the ad.

Outrageous!

Angela Davis Corrupts Young Minds at Marin Academy

Some private schools are just as bad, if not worse, than many public schools in terms of ideology.

Take Marin Academy in San Rafael, which should be renamed Marin Academy of Leftist Indoctrination.

Last March, students at the school took part in an anti-war "rally" and speech by David Harris, a 1960's anti-war activist. As with most liberal schools, there was no speaker offering a patriotic, pro-troops message to the students.

Friday, the students were treated to an address by radical Angela Davis for the academy's Civil Rights and Human Rights in a Democracy conference.

In a story of her "lecture" in the Marin IJ, Davis, an admitted Communist and a professor at UC Santa Cruz, used her speech to attack President Bush and a 700 mile border fence. She also rationalized her role in purchasing guns used in the 1970 murder of a Marin County Judge and whined about being labeled a terrorist by President Richard Nixon.

"It's complicated. You have to keep in mind there were revolutions going on across the world," Davis was quoted by the IJ.

According to the IJ's glowing coverage, Davis has her admirers.

"Davis' actions continue to inspire us," said Tia Hicks, a senior at the Academy.

Obviously, due to its one-sided learning environment, no one at Marin Academy informed Tia and others of how extreme Davis is. Here is a link to Angela's radical past from Discover the Network.

Davis bought the guns used by Jonathan Jackson to murder Marin County Judge Harold Haley. Haley, two jurors, and an assistant district attorney were held hostage in a plot to free her lover, Black Panther George Jackson.

Davis was later acquitted for her role in the murder. One juror even gave a clenched-fist salute to news cameras and joined other jurors in a victory party for Davis.

She was a recipient of the International Lenin Peace Prize in 1979 and leads a movement against the so-called "Prison Industrial Complex," arguing that incarcerated minorities are "political prisoners."

Davis was quoted as saying, "The only path of liberation for black people is that which leads toward complete and radical overthrow of the capitalist class."

Nice inspiration for young minds, huh Tia?

What is on the agenda for next year at Marin Academy? A lecture on “Alternative Views of al-Queda” given by John Walker Lindh via satellite from prison?

Transcendental Meditation at Terra Linda High?

Today's Marin IJ has a story entitled "Relaxation or Religion" about plans by Terra Linda High School to launch a transcendental meditation program at the school, which has sparked opposition as well as defenders.

According to the article, Principal Carole Ramsey became enthusiastic about TM after attending a speech by filmmaker David Lynch. Lynch also heads a foundation that is giving the school a $175,000 grant to launch the program. The foundation funds similar programs in Washington DC and Detroit.

Transcendental Meditation gained public attention through high profile celebrities like The Beatles, Mia Farrow, as well as filmmaker Lynch. Many see TM as not just a religion, but as a religious cult. Steven Hassan's Freedom of Mind website links to several articles critical of TM. A former Moonie, Hassan said about TM in a July 1987 Washington Compost article, "They want you to dress and think and speak in a certain way and not to ask questions. They go into hypnotic trances and shut off who they are as a person." Among the more outlandish claims by TM is how the meditation can cause some to levitate from the ground.

According to The Skeptic's Dictionary, representatives of TM have made several attempts to infiltrate the public schools. TM reps claim the meditation will reduce teen pregnancy, violence and increase test scores. The California Teachers Association (CTA) even had TM reps at a November 2000 workshop entitled "Stopping the Fear - Creating Violence Free Public Schools & Communities" in Sacramento. The Natural Law Party is TM's way of entering the political realms.

Lynda Nichols a consultant with the state Department of Education doesn't see a problem with TM at Terra Linda High, noting that it is not a mandatory class.

"The parents that are concerned should just not let their children attend. The district is certainly within their right to offer it," Nichols was quoted in the IJ.

Well Ms. Nichols, what is right about allowing a religious cult in taxpayer funded public schools? Your job is to teach our children how to read and write, not chanting mantras.

If you're a Christian, you're essentially forbidden to show any sign of your faith on a public school campus. Yet in Marin County CA, classes have gone on field trips to the mosque where "Ratboy" John Walker Lindh converted to Islam. Earlier this year, San Rafael High School's facilities were used for an military recruiting resistance presentation by local anti-American groups. Last month, the IJ had a photo of students at one Marin County school forming a human "peace symbol" to celebrate UN International Peace Day.

When do students ever find time to learn about US History instead of "multiculturalism", in addition to the three R’s in Marin County schools? I waiting for the day when San Rafael Public Schools will allow a patriotic organization to give a presentation countering the anti-military message they allowed on their campuses?

Principal Ramsey will conduct a meeting for parents to obtain more information at Terra Linda School Library this Thursday at 7 p.m. Their address is 320 Nova Albion Way in San Rafael and their phone number is (415)492-3100. I recommend all parents who are opposed to this TM program attend and make their voices heard. As always, be respectful.

John Kerry Jokes About Assassinating Bush--Where's The Secret Service?

Hanoi John Kerry appeared on Bill Maher's HBO show Real Time last Friday. After a lighthearted discussion of what Kerry did for his wife's birthday, the following exchange took place.

MAHER: You could have went to New Hampshire and killed two birds with one
stone.

KERRY: Or, I could have gone to 1600 Pennsylvania and killed the real bird with one stone.

John Kerry's not ashamed to have the video posted on his website. Even liberal blogs thought Kerry's assassination joke was funny, Javelin, posting on The Democratic Daily wrote:

"OMG, that was classic where he said if he wanted to kill two birds with one stone he would have vacationed at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue…….I haven’t laughed so hard since 'I am a hunter, but I have never hunted with an AK-47'."


From books, paintings, signs at supposed anti-war rallies, radio hosts on Hot-Air America and now a movie, assassinating George W. Bush has become a talking point among liberals, with practically no outrage from the MSM or a Secret Service investigation. Compare that to 1994 when then Senator Jesse Helms made a similar joke about Bill Clinton that was taken as a assassination threat. There was media outrage and even a Secret Service investigation.

No wonder North Korea can threaten world peace with nuclear tests or Iran can pursue nuclear weapons and fuel the terrorist insurgency in Iraq. Americas enemies see via the internet and worldwide media the disrespect the so-called "loyal opposition" gives the President of the United States. It doesn't help matters when a treasonous bastard like John Kerry, their 2004 nominee for President, makes assassination jokes on national TV and gets away with it.

Kerry needs to be reminded of U.S. Code Title 18, Part 1, Chapter 41, Sect 871 and should be paid a visit from the Secret Service. Just because he is a Senator and a liberal Democrat doesn't make him above the law.

Hanoi John also needs to be reminded about his words in his concession speech from November 3, 2004.

"We (Bush & Kerry) talked about the danger of division in our country, and the need — the desperate need — for unity, for finding the common ground, coming together. Today, I hope that we can begin the healing."


Sen. Kerry, joking about killing the President is not a way to heal the divisions in America which you and your party created. Your plea for "healing" and "common ground" is just like the Democratic pledge of unity after 9/11, nothing but empty words.

Per Drudge Report -- IM Messages in Foleygate Were Pranks

Per the Drudge Report.

According to two people close to former congressional page Jordan Edmund, the now famous lurid AOL Instant Message exchanges that led to the resignation of Mark Foley were part of an online prank that by mistake got into the hands of enemy political operatives, the DRUDGE REPORT can reveal.

According to one Oklahoma source who knows the former page very well, Edmund, a conservative Republican, goaded an unwitting Foley to type embarrassing comments that were then shared with a small group of young Hill politicos. The prank went awry when the saved IM sessions got into the hands of political operatives favorable to Democrats.

The primary source, an ally of Edmund, adamantly proclaims that the former page is not a homosexual. The prank scenario was confirmed by a second associate of Edmund. Both are fearful that their political careers will be affected if they are publicly brought into the matter.

The news come on the heels that Edmund has hired former Timothy McVeigh attorney, Stephen Jones.

More Leftist Racism On Display

While browsing various blogs, I came upon this post from the Leftist website A Call To Action. It is a link to a story by "Gucci Marxist" Robert Scheer. However, it is the photo posted with the story that caught my attention.


More Leftist racism on display. Wonder if the blogger behind A Call To Action might be related to the following DemoKKKratic Senator?

Gay Activists Held Onto Foley Info For Exposure During Midterm Election

UPDATE: Drudge Report - The Foley IM exchange was with an 18 year old.

From Gateway Pundit:

** THIS STORY IS ABOUT TO BUST OPEN! **What we know now...Radical Gay Rights Activists held on to information about Representative Foley for months and years. These "Rights Activists" knew that representative Foley had relationships with "young men less than half his age." They did their own investigation on Foley. They even flew in their sources in to be interviewed about the Representative. They shared this information with the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. They held on to the information for over a year. They wrote about how they would break the story at midterm elections.


Posted by Mike Rodgers on BlogActive.com on March 22, 2005 is the following:

....Everyone already knows Foley's a self hating closet case. When we get closer to the mid-term elections, I am sure more will surface.

Here's the $64,000 question: What did Pelosi and the DNCC know and when did they know it?

Group Tied To Clintons Calling Republican Voters To Ask For Hastert Resignation

This is getting more & more suspicious by the day. I'm not making excuses for what Mark Foley did. He was right to resign and, if found guilty of breaking any laws, should be punished to the full extent of the law.

However, I'm curious why these text messages were held by someone for three years and just now released to the media. What about the George Soros funded blog behind the release of some of these messages?

Then, as I listened to the Mark Levin Show this afternoon, a couple of callers mentioned they'd received phone calls with taped messages asking them to call their Congressperson demanding Speaker Dennis Hastert's resignation.

Sgt. Tim Sumner, a great American who contributes to MarkLevinFan.com did some research and found the following about the group making these calls - AmericanFamilyVoices.org.

Sgt. Tim writes:

A search revealed AmericanFamilyVoices.org is registered to a Carol of Eugene, Oregon, the Trevelyan Strategy Group, and the CTSG organization. A further search revealed the President of American Family Voices to be Mike Lux who has a very interesting resume:

He is the founder of Progressive Strategies LLCserved at the William Jefferson Clinton White House as a Special Assistant to the President for Public Liaison…Since leaving the White House in April 1995, Lux has become a significant fundraiser for progressive causes and candidates. He was a 1996 Clinton-Gore Finance Committee Vice Chair, and served in the 1996 cycle as a Democratic National Business Council Vice Chair. He has raised money for numerous charitable causes and political candidates over the last three years. Prior to his service at the White House, Lux was Constituency Director on both the 1992 Clinton-Gore campaign and the Presidential transition. Lux was also a senior staffer for the Joseph R. Biden, Jr. and Paul Simon campaigns in the 1988 cycle….

Lux is currently (January 29, 2003) involved in assisting Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) “in assembling and raising money for a new outside organization designed to provide a voice to the party’s progressive wing…

A search for the Trevelyan Strategy Group linked it to Emerging Democratic Majority, where is says the, “web site and E-newsletter is produced by Ruy Teixeira in collaboration with McPherson Associates and The Carol / Trevelyan Strategy Group.”

In other words, a leftist liberal organization, whose President may also work for Senator Clinton, is calling Republicans to tell them to demand that the Republican leadership resign. Makes you wonder if the still unconfirmed reports that a watchdog group may have withheld Foley’s instant messages, political hack groups, and certain Democrats are in cahoots. I am not saying that they did anything wrong or criminal; I am just wondering aloud.
