Virginia is for Lovers...Lovers of Child Porn That Is

A couple of recent polls have actually shown Senate candidate and author of Kiddie Sex novels, Jim Webb, gaining a slight advantage over George Allen.

Kind of sick.

American Legion Demands Kerry Apologize For Implying Troops Are Stupid

Mentally-Disturbed "Liberal-Democrat-Blogger" Attacks Senators George Allen and Elizabeth Dole in Charlottesville

This is pretty much the low behavior you would expect from a so called "Progressive."

However, if you click on the story, you'll see that the Democrat Party has selectively ripped out a piece of the video where the lunatic blogger is being subdued by security.

Then they put it on YouTube, under this title: "Allen Staffers Attack Man At Campaign Stop."

I have another title that the Democrats would like: "Poor John Wilkes Booth Hung by Evil Pro-Lincoln Supporters."

Florida: Brown-Waite Cruising by 13 pts.

Ohio: Schmidt Leads Wulsin by 8 pts.

This is good news, because she was considered one of the most vulnerable Republicans in November, ever since she narrowly won her seat in a special election earlier this year.

Maryland: Steele and Cardin Tied at 46

You will notice that the Green Party Candidate is taking in 3 percent of the vote. That might end up deciding the election.

Alabama: Riley Cruising, Leads Baxley by 21 pts.

Too bad there are no competitive house races in Alabama, because Riley's big win could help any GOP candidates who are in an iffy situation.

Colorado: Musgrave Ahead by 10 pts.

Washington: Reichert Ahead, 50 to 47

Maine: Snowe Has Huge Lead

According to Real Clear Politics, the latest Rasmussen poll gives her a 46 pt. lead.

My hope is that she has some coat-tails, and helps Mr. Woodcock beat Mr. Baldacci for Maine's governorship.

Even More Nazi Hijinks at Columbia University

More YouTube Censoring

I tried to find some hightlights of the Santorum/Casey Jr. debates on YouTube to post for you, but not much to my surprise, I mostly found pro-Casey propaganda and only a few pro-Santorum snippets and do-dads that had nothing to do with the debate.

Instead, YouTube had videos with such names as "Santorum Rage," " Santorum Plays the Dead Father Card" and of course "Watch Bob Casey offer a New Direction and Rick Santorum offer more of the same."

By the way, who is Bobby Casey Jr. to say anyone else is using a "dead father card?" The only reason a simple empty-suit like Bobby Jr. is being considered for any political office at all is his dead father.

If left to his own devices, Bobby Jr. would be lucky to be working as a ... well I don't want to insult anybody who is working hard at a job by equating them with Casey, so I'll leave it to your imagination.

Pennsylvania: Santorum Kicks Casey Jr. Butt in Debate

Unbelievable! Everybody is talking about how Santorum totally destroyed Bobby Casey Jr. Can Casey really be as dumb a he appeared to be? I just hope that a lot of people in Pennsylvania were watching this debate. If they were, Santorum will pull out this election.

How YouTube Censors Christians & Conservatives

YouTube has "dismembered conservative and politically incorrect speech" in the past, pulling videos critical of Islam and even banning popular conservative blogger Michelle Malkin, who is also a WND columnist.

Sexually suggestive videos were found on the site unblocked, as were entire episodes of television shows. So was a clip from a movie depicting the assassination of President Bush, "Death of a President."

"Perfectly OK to show our soldiers getting killed, but they'll be damned if they allow that anti-democrat ad," added "Spaceman Spiff" in a "Newsbusters online dialogue. "This [is] very scary to me. However, not surprising. But, now that they are owned by Google, we'll certainly be seeing a lot more of this censoring."

Florida: Is Crist Cruising to Easy Win?

If things remain the way they are, the Crist rising tide will certainly lift all GOP boats.
Still, imagine what it could have been like if Jeb Bush had decided to run against Bill Nelson...
There would not be talk of Democrats seizing the Senate, and there would be even more coat-tails available for Republicans lower down on the ticket.

Democrat Hypocrisy on Foley

The reaction of Democrats back in 1983 to the Gerry Studds scandal was more in keeping with its position in this cultural divide. Massachusetts Rep. Studds had had sex with a 17-year-old male page, to which Democrats merely tsk-tsked. Some argued that the relationship was consensual, so no harm, no foul. Studds was re-elected for six more terms and must be glad that he left Congress before it became a firing offense just to send sexually charged instant messages to former pages. —Rich Lowry

Florida: Katherine Harris a Dark Horse?

Congresswoman Katherine Harris is only 17 pts. behind Bill Nelson. That may seem like a lot, but considering she was never given a chance, this is an uncomfortably small lead for the incumbent Senator. If Harris can narrow the gap a little more, then a strong win by Charlie Crist in the Governors race might be just be all the coat tails she needs to squeak into the Senate and mash some egg in the face of the mainstream media who never gave her a chance. Actually, I never gave her a chance either...

The Gettysburg Address

"Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation or any nation so conceived and so dedicated can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting-place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead who struggled here have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living rather to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us--that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion--that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth."

-- Abraham Lincoln
November 19, 1863

45 Goals of the Communist Party (1963)

  • 01. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
  • 02. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
  • 03. Develop the illustion that total disarmament by the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
  • 04. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
  • 05. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
  • 06. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
  • 07. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.
  • 08. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under the supervision of the U.N.
  • 09. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
  • 10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.
  • 11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)
  • 12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
  • 13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
  • 14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
  • 15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
  • 16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
  • 17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
  • 18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
  • 19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
  • 20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.
  • 21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
  • 22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."
  • 23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."
  • 24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.
  • 25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
  • 26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."
  • 27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a "religious crutch."
  • 28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."
  • 29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
  • 30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."
  • 31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
  • 32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
  • 33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
  • 34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
  • 35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
  • 36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
  • 37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
  • 38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].
  • 39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
  • 40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
  • 41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
  • 42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use ["]united force["] to solve economic, political or social problems.
  • 43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.
  • 44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.
  • 45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.
