The Democrats are panicking   
What else can explain the astonishing errors they have made recently? John Kerry has, of course, been making an ass of himself every time he appears in public, most recently by attacking President Bush's religion while simultaneously telling his own church's leaders to shut up and stop presuming to give him moral guidance, insisting that every price increase is a tax increase, and having his spokesperson give credence to the lunatic idea that Bill Clinton will be his Secretary of State.

[Update: Being a steadfast ignorer of all things MTV, I missed the actual latest self-inflicted Kerry disaster: he publicly blamed Bush for terrorism during his "Choose or Lose" appearance (via Hugh Hewitt).]

And this last week the Democrats did something which only makes sense as an expression of blind, stupid panic: They invited the American people to cast their vote on the issue of terrorism.

Stupid, stupid. Thank you, Lord, for making them so stupid.

Before Richard Clarke popped up with his accusations, an unofficial truce had been in effect: the blame for intelligence failures and general lack of seriousness on terrorism would be parcelled out about equally between the parties. Although occasionally a Paul O'Neill or a Frank Gaffney would squeeze off a shot over the barricades, this truce, in the main, was holding. Both sides saw the danger in playing the blame game instead of focusing on the future. So why did the Democrats choose to break this truce and embrace Richard Clarke's bizarre and indefensible assertion that President Clinton was better on terrorism than President Bush?

[Update: And do it without even bothering to check on Clarke's past statements? Clarke himself is, at best, an egomaniac and a fantasist who might not have understood that his assertions would be questioned and contradictions publicized, but that can't explain why the Dems so eagerly jumped in bed with him.]

The only reason I can see is panic. Kerry's big chance--well, his only chance, really--was to get America's mind off terrorism and onto the economy and domestic issues.

But with the economy picking up steam, and with the Bush team successfully portraying Kerry as a tax-raiser and flip-flopper, panic set in. When Kerry's poll numbers started to fall (and I'd love to see the Dems' internal polling numbers), the Democrats decided (or perhaps they stumbled) on a desperation move: They would try to pin all the blame for our government's failures against terrorism on President Bush.

This was, of course, stupid. By doing this, not only have the Democrats ensured that terrorism is an even bigger issue in the campaign that it might have been, but they've opened the door for Republicans to point out Clinton's failings on terrorism, which are by any rational measure far worse than Bush's. Had the Republicans started the blame-throwing, they would have looked petty. Now, they merely look like they are answering the Democrats' charges calmly and reasonably.

And of course, it's only natural that the Republicans go on to point out that the Clinton anti-terrorism "strategy" would also be the Kerry "strategy." No one who is thinking clearly could have thought that was a good strategy for the Democrats.

So be confident...but not overconfident. President Bush will still need a lot of help. So join the winning team today, and help make it the winning team.

Kerry considers Bill Clinton for Secretary of State:

When asked about making the offer to Clinton, Kerry spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter went out of her way to avoid denials.

"President Clinton would clearly help the United States regain the respect of our allies across the world," Cutter told the New York Daily News on Thursday, before insisting it was too early to name potential Cabinet picks.

Yard Sales for the President!   
I had this brilliant idea the other day (though a bit of websurfing tells me that some Dean supporters had it first, which scares me a little):

I was planning to hold a yard sale this spring. Why not, I thought, hold the yard sale to benefit the Bush-Cheney campaign?

Of course, ideally I would like to simply announce that "All proceeds will be donated to the Bush campaign," but I don't know if that's feasible under our current campaign finance regime (I sent the question to a campaign official; when I get an answer I'll post it).

Other possibilities:

"All proceeds will go to buy Bush-Cheney '04 materials for independent distribution."

Since none of the money from the Bush online store goes to the campaign, campaign finance laws wouldn't come into play. And such a move would reduce the necessity for the campaign to buy and distribute buttons, bumper stickers, and the like. For every ten bucks you and I spend on campaign materials, that's ten bucks the campaign can spend somewhere else.

"All proceeds will be donated to [insert name of independent pro-Bush group]."

As long as the group is independent of the campaign, what can the FEC do about it? When last I looked, the First Amendment was still part of the Constitution.

Any other ideas for what to do with the money? Leave a comment at the end of this post.

Of course, another option would be to simply keep the money from the sale, and then make a donation out of your own pocket which just happens to be in the amount you made at the sale. However, I think it's preferable to announce that proceeds will go to help the President, even if they won't be donated directly to the campaign.

I know that advertising it as a "yard sale for the President" will turn off Democrats and reduce potential customers, but the money is really only one part of the scheme. The idea is also to register new Republican voters and recruit Bush campaign volunteers. If you advertise a "Bush-Cheney yard sale," you will disproportionately attract Bush-friendly patrons.

Remember to pick up some voter-registration forms at your local elections office (in some states, you can photocopy forms, in others you need originals). Also, contact your local Bush campaign or Republican Party to get some forms for campaign volunteers to fill out.

Here's a draft newspaper ad (composed on the assumption that donations to the campaign are out):

Re-elect President Bush! [ADDRESS DELETED], Sat. 8-4. Books, sci-fi, VHS and DVD movies, knick-knacks, collectibles, cold pop, misc. Also: register to vote, and volunteer for President Bush's campaign. All proceeds will go to buy Bush-Cheney '04 materials for independent distribution in Spokane. This sale is not affiliated with, nor will any proceeds be donated to, Bush-Cheney '04, Inc.

If a whole bunch of people in the same area had their sales on the same day (or banded together and threw one big sale), it might even get some media coverage.

Anyway, it's something to think about.

Your country needs you.   
Jack Kelly nails it.

We now know how Campaign 2004 will unfold: A Democrat will accuse President Bush of having started the Chicago fire, or poisoning Halloween candy or whatever. The news media will trumpet the charges, no matter how preposterous. When Bush aides deny the charges, and provide evidence refuting them, journalists will accuse Bush of making "personal attacks."

Yep. And we can't trust anyone to make our case except us. We are not only fighting the Kerry campaign and the Democratic Party, but the major media as well. If we sit on our butts hoping that people will learn the truth, we will lose, because most people think "the truth" is what they get from Peter Jennings and Dan Rather.

These people will say--and do--anything to win.

It's up to you and me to get the truth about President Bush and John Kerry out to voters.

And the way to do that is to volunteer for the campaign.

Don't have time? Nonsense. You can find an hour or two a week. Or is playing golf or watching TV more important to you than the future of your country? You'll wait until later? Why?! The Democratic assault has already begun and we need to fight right now! If you wait long enough, you may find yourself watching President Kerry's inauguration on CNN.

You don't even have to leave your home. You can make phone calls for the campaign right from your own house.

Volunteers are especially important in battleground states such as Washington. The Bush campaign is going to fight hard for Washington's eleven electoral votes. But to do that, the campaign needs you.

If you are in the 5th Congressional District, download this form (.TXT file) and fill it out in any text editor (such as Notepad; don't worry about formatting, as long as I can tell which answer goes where). Then e-mail it to me and I will send it on to the campaign.

Only you can ensure the re-election of the President. The fate of the country is in your hands.

Kerry: Don't call that liar a liar!   
"John Kerry said Saturday the White House is committing character assassination with its treatment of former counterterror chief Richard Clarke to avoid responding to questions about national security."

And remember, Mr. President: John Kerry knows something about assassinations for real!

Of course, it should not surprise us that Senator Kerry desperately wishes to delegitimize the exposure of lies.

Oh, well, that's what we need: a President whose words aren't taken seriously.



Bush-Cheney '04!
Well, so much for Clarke.   
In August 2002, Richard Clarke gave a background briefing to reporters in which he contradicted his current claims. According to Clarke, the Bush Administration began strengthening our counterterrorism efforts--including those directed specifically at al-Qaeda--in January 2001.

RICHARD CLARKE: Actually, I've got about seven points, let me just go through them quickly. Um, the first point, I think the overall point is, there was no plan on Al Qaeda that was passed from the Clinton administration to the Bush administration.

Second point is that the Clinton administration had a strategy in place, effectively dating from 1998. And there were a number of issues on the table since 1998. And they remained on the table when that administration went out of office — issues like aiding the Northern Alliance in Afghanistan, changing our Pakistan policy -- uh, changing our policy toward Uzbekistan. And in January 2001, the incoming Bush administration was briefed on the existing strategy. They were also briefed on these series of issues that had not been decided on in a couple of years.

And the third point is the Bush administration decided then, you know, mid-January, to do two things. One, vigorously pursue the existing policy, including all of the lethal covert action findings, which we've now made public to some extent.

And the point is, while this big review was going on, there were still in effect, the lethal findings were still in effect. The second thing the administration decided to do is to initiate a process to look at those issues which had been on the table for a couple of years and get them decided.

So, point five, that process which was initiated in the first week in February, uh, decided in principle, uh in the spring to add to the existing Clinton strategy and to increase CIA resources, for example, for covert action, five-fold, to go after Al Qaeda.

The sixth point, the newly-appointed deputies — and you had to remember, the deputies didn't get into office until late March, early April. The deputies then tasked the development of the implementation details, uh, of these new decisions that they were endorsing, and sending out to the principals.

Over the course of the summer — last point — they developed implementation details, the principals met at the end of the summer, approved them in their first meeting, changed the strategy by authorizing the increase in funding five-fold, changing the policy on Pakistan, changing the policy on Uzbekistan, changing the policy on the Northern Alliance assistance.

And then changed the strategy from one of rollback with Al Qaeda over the course [of] five years, which it had been, to a new strategy that called for the rapid elimination of al Qaeda. That is in fact the timeline....

JIM ANGLE: You're saying that the Bush administration did not stop anything that the Clinton administration was doing while it was making these decisions, and by the end of the summer had increased money for covert action five-fold. Is that correct?

CLARKE: All of that's correct....

CLARKE: ...And you know, the other thing to bear in mind is the shift from the rollback strategy to the elimination strategy. When President Bush told us in March [2001] to stop swatting at flies and just solve this problem, then that was the strategic direction that changed the NSPD from one of rollback to one of elimination.

This is almost too easy. Just remember: our opponents will say and do anything to win.

Tom Daschle: for the President to campaign is an "abuse of power."   
(Via Blogs for Bush.)

This is it for the Dems. This is the best they've got, and they're trotting it out every chance they get: the accusation that President Bush has the unmitigated gall to actually campaign for re-election.

This is not a tactic for a party which thinks it can win.

I hear (e.g., in Kate O'Beirne's latest National Review [print] piece) that some Republicans are "panicking."

For God's sake, why?! We should be battling overconfidence and complacency right now. Kerry is fast becoming a joke, his campaign is apparently in disarray, and the Democratic leadership is behaving like they see no chance of winning anything ths year.

Clarke's claims don't hold water   
A Free Republic poster found documentary proof:

Richard Clarke's press briefing on the "International Crime Assessment," December 2000.

Not one mention of al-Qaeda or Usama bin Laden.

Here is what he said about the Taliban:

MR. CLARKE: I expect that early next week the United Nations Security Council will pass for the second time a series of sanctions against the Taliban regime that rules most of Afghanistan. That resolution will be co-sponsored by Russia and the United States and we expect it to gain widespread support in the Security Council.

There is, I think, almost universal recognition around the world that the Taliban regime that pretends to be the government of Afghanistan is a criminal organization and is threatening many countries, not just the United States, is threatening many countries in the Middle East and in the Caucuses in central Europe through terrorism and through the export of narcotics.

Obviously, the United States takes this threat seriously. And we are doing and have been doing a number of things in cooperation with our friends and allies. Some of those things are not terribly visible or at least are not yet terribly visible. And I think that the President has made clear that it's a high priority for this administration and I'm sure it will be a high priority for the next administration.

And what we have done over the course of the last several years is to use all means available to us, diplomatic, economic, intelligence activities. And we have used military force in the past against the government of Afghanistan. I trust the next administration will have a similar policy.

Q: But on the question of whether you would rule out using military force between now and January 20th -- time is running out.

MR. CLARKE: That's obviously something for the President to decide and I don't think it's appropriate to get into that here. But I think the important thing to recognize is that we have been using all means available to us to combat the threats emanating from Afghanistan and other countries have as well. And that's an ongoing program, for which the 20th of January doesn't have a great deal of significance.

Ooooh, he was serious about Afghanistan! UN sanctions and cruise missile strikes! Yeah, hit that camel's butt!

And perhaps most damning of all, here is what Clarke said about the biggest threat to US citizens:

Q: As far as international crimes go, what's the one largest threat to U.S. citizens right now?

MR. CLARKE: I think the largest threat is obviously posed by international narcotics smuggling, which costs a number of lives and costs an enormous amount of money. But more and more, we see that the people who are engaged in international narcotics smuggling are also engaged in other businesses, other illegal activities.

And whether it's counterfeiting or IPR violations or trafficking in women or drug violations, it all comes back to money. The reason that international criminals do what they do is to make money. And what the President asked us to do four years ago was to follow the money. And we have done that significantly in the Treasury Department programs, particularly over the course of the last year and a half.

So, Clinton's terrorism czar thought as late as December 2000 that dope smuggling was "the one largest threat to U.S. citizens," but it's Bush's fault that we didn't take out Usama bin Laden before 9/11?

Right.

Richard Clarke is a liar and a fool.

Update: The International Crime Assessment.

"Under predominantly Taliban rule, international terrorists and drug traffickers have been able to operate with impunity in Afghanistan. The Taliban have given sanctuary to renegade Saudi terrorist Usama Bin Ladin, allowing him and other terrorist groups to operate training camps in Afghanistan. Bin Ladin, in return, has used his extensive wealth and business network to help financially support the Taliban. Despite the Taliban's public condemnation of the illicit narcotics industry, virtually all of Afghanistan's opium poppy cultivation and morphine base and heroin processing laboratories are located in Taliban-controlled territory. The Taliban profits from the Afghan drug trade by taxing opium production and drug movements."

I haven't read the whole thing, but it seems that the report is concerned mostly with the threat from organized crime, especially drug smuggling. It mentions terrorism only insofar as it relates to drug smuggling. This meshes nicely with Clarke's statement above that drug smuggling is the greatest threat to Americans. It does not mesh with his recent statements about his attempts to warn the President about the threat from al-Qaeda.

Update: It does have a section on terrorism. It's pathetic.

And the section on the future barely mentions terrorism at all.

Update: Mansoor Ijaz says that Clarke personally intervened to block the extradition of Bin Laden from Sudan.

Update: Winds of Change points out that Clarke himself was one of those who planned and defended the bombing of Sudan's al-Shifa pharmaceutical plant on the grounds that Bin Laden and Iraq were working together to make chemical weapons. (Via Blogs for Bush.)

Update: Clarke's resignation letter:

"It has been an enormous privilege to serve you these last 24 months," said the Jan. 20, 2003, letter from Clarke to Bush. "I will always remember the courage, determination, calm, and leadership you demonstrated on September 11th."

Richard Clarke: Bush not aggressive enough on Iraq's WMDs   
Waitaminnit! Isn't Richard Clarke the guy who's saying that Bush was too aggressive on Iraq's WMDs?

Yeah, but this was in 1992, and he was talking about the first President Bush.

I suppose the situation has changed since then: he couldn't very well attack this Republican President in this election year for being too soft on Iraq; I guess he had to take whatever shot he could.

The counterprotest   
There were about two dozen of us (maybe a few more), up against two or three hundred of the lefties, who seemed to be a nice mixture of the idiotic and the insane. We started out in Franklin Park, where the lefties were gathered in the center of the park where no one could see them, while we stood on Division where all the traffic was. Noticing this, some of the lefties moved over to Division, but eventually their crowd control people moved them away from us.

One man I talked to was a Vietnam vet who has a couple of sons in Iraq (there was a good contingent of military relatives there, God bless them). He told me that he was out at the airport when Kerry came to Spokane and Kerry and his entire contingent acted like arrogant jerks. Kerry didn't want to go through security. One of his aides wouldn't let the cop have a cold drink because they were only for reporters (what is it with these people and the law enforcement personnel who are protecting them?). This is secondhand, of course, but I see no reason to doubt the man's word. Besides, it just sounds like Kerry, doesn't it?

There was also a crew from KXLY there, so we may be on TV tonight.

We were careful not to invade the lefties' space, but a few of them weren't so courteous. A couple of particularly creepy ones came over and started pestering us, and when they were informed that we didn't want them there, started whining "It's a public park!" and refusing to go away. When I tried to explain the concept of "rudeness" to them, it quickly became obvious that they were simply too arrogant and stupid to understand. This is the salient fact about the modern left: they just can't keep their noses out of other people's business, and they can't understand why they should.

Another, older leftie wandered over with a sign memorializing Rachel Corrie (or as I call her, "Patty") the dimwitted leftie broad who was squooshed by a bulldozer as she worked to facilitate the mass murder of Jews. When I asked him if he also mourned the death of Adolf Eichmann, who died for pretty much the same reason (though in a less timely fashion), he informed me that there were "no homicidal gas chambers in Germany." Although technically he's right (the gas chambers were in Poland), I can't imagine what his point was, if not to deny that the Holocaust happened (and the fact that his pro-Jew-killer sign read "Israel, stop killing peace" lets you pretty well figure out what he thinks about Jews and the people who murder them). I dunno, maybe he's just a senile old coot. Anyway, he didn't laugh at the "Patty" joke, which proves he's got no sense of humor.

After a few speeches, the lefties marched up to the military recruiting station on Francis. About eight or ten of us drove our cars up there (hey, we're Republicans) and waited for them to arrive. It was less interesting up there. They tried to surround us and drown out our message about supporting the troops, so we moved off to the sides. After a while, they got bored and went away. Then, after a further while, so did we.

One thing I can tell you: they may have outnumbered us, but (judging by the number of people honking and waving or giving a thumbs-up) we were far more popular, even with all the Bush-Cheney signs (which probably turned off a lot decent, patriotic Americans who support Kerry out of ignorance). We were even more popular up at the recruiting station, when those with the Bush signs had gone (the closest was my "God bless the President" sign, which I worded specifically to support him as the President rather than as a candidate).

Another thing I noticed: there were no Kerry signs or material, while there were a lot of Bush signs on our side. This cannot bode well for the Kerry campaign. If the hardcore activist Bush-hating left isn't even enthusiastic enough about him to wear a button or carry a sign, how is he going to appeal to swing voters in the battleground states, who are at least willing to consider voting for the President?

Brave men and women are risking their lives overseas to defend this nation from its enemies. Is a couple of hours on a Saturday afternoon too much to ask from the rest of us to defend our President and our troops against character assassination?

Update: We'll meet at the southeast corner of the park at 12:45, which is the corner of Division and Queen (diagonally across from Northtown Mall).

Another moonbat for Kerry   
Noam Chomsky endorses the foul-mouthed liar.



Bush-Cheney '04!
What's the fuss?   
From the Drudge Report:

"Former White House terrorism advisor Richard Clarke tells Lesley Stahl that on September 11, 2001 and the day after - when it was clear Al Qaeda had carried out the terrorist attacks - the Bush administration was considering bombing Iraq in retaliation."

OK. Sounds good to me.

I really don't understand what I'm supposed to be outraged about. You see, I don't believe there are any good terrorists.

On September 11, 2001, I was calling for an immediate declaration of war against all terrorist-sponsoring states, as well as the assassination of any terrorist we could get in our sights, including Yasser Arafat and Gerry Adams, whether or not they had committed these particular mass murders.

Richard Clarke, on the other hand, doesn't think we should be mean to mass murderers unless we can tie them to 9/11. Well, screw that. Terrorism is terrorism, and people such as Richard Clarke who still fail to understand that must be driven from public life and never allowed to return--whether they are politicians or career bureaucrats. Clarke's shock and outrage that Saddam was considered a target in the war against the terrorists is proof of nothing except his own incompetence to have any part in the direction of that war.

Not to mention the fact that he isn't even right.

Volunteer. Donate. Vote.

Only you can ensure that the Richard Clarkes of the world are kept away from the levers of power.

Update: Richard Clarke really is incompetent.

But with his retirement, Clarke's career accomplishments should be noted.

In 1986, as a State Department bureaucrat with pull, he came up with a plan to battle terrorism and subvert Muammar Qaddafi by having SR-71s produce sonic booms over Libya. This was to be accompanied by rafts washing onto the sands of Tripoli, the aim of which was to create the illusion of a coming attack. When this nonsense was revealed, it created embarrassment for the Reagan administration and was buried.

In 1998, according to the New Republic, Clarke "played a key role in the Clinton administration's misguided retaliation for the bombings of the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, which targeted bin Laden's terrorist camps in Afghanistan and a pharmaceutical factory in Sudan." The pharmaceutical factory was, apparently, just a pharmaceutical factory, and we now know how impressed bin Laden was by cruise missiles that miss.

Of course, none of this will stop CBS from presenting him as some sort of expert on terrorism.

Flip-flop #4723   
Kerry backs off denials that he attended VVAW meeting at which members discussed assassinating several anti-Communist Senators.

Of course, Kerry was not himself in favor of these proposed assassinations (and still denies--at least until he's caught again--that he was present when they were discussed), but as Blogs for Bush points out, he also didn't notify authorities that VVAW was seriously considering committing these acts of terrorism.

Volunteer. Donate. Vote.

Only you can keep John Kerry out of the White House.

Debate: RNC Chairman vs DNC Chairman    
Ed Gillespie takes on Terry McAuliffe live on C-SPAN (Ch. 27 in Spokane) at 5 PM PST.

I haven't decided if I'm going to watch.

Update: Why is Democratic flack George Stephanapolous "moderating"?

Update 2: I'm already bored. Back to the Simpsons rerun.

Update 3: According to NRO's Kathryn Jean Lopez, McAuliffe lumped in partial-birth abortion with gay marriage as a "wedge issue." I hope the GOP saves that cut, since it proves beyond doubt that a "wedge issue" is nothing more than an issue on which Democrats disagree with a large majority of Americans.

Updated Bush "Troops" ad   
The Bush campaign, always wanting to play fair, has re-edited its "Troops" ad to include Kerry's response to the charge that he voted to abandon our troops: "I actually did vote for the $87 billion before I voted against it."

Strangely, the ad seem to be even more effective now that it includes Kerry's explanation.

(The new ad is "Troops-FoG.")

I hate taxes!   
Just got done paying my federal income and local property taxes. My federal taxes are considerably lower than they were last year (thank you, Mr. President, and so much for the filthy Democratic lie about "tax cuts for the rich"), but they're still too complicated considering the simplicity of my personal finances. God help people with complicated returns; no individual should ever have to pay someone to do his taxes. The next step for federal taxation should be a radical simplifying of the entire system. With President Bush, we've got a chance; with Kerry, taxes will be higher and even more complicated.

As far as state and local property taxes, we need to work on getting I-864 on the Washington State ballot this year to lower property taxes by 25%.

Calling all Spokane County Republicans   
Washington is a battleground state this year. The national Bush campaign is going to seriously contest our eleven electoral votes.

In 2000, President Bush got 51.9% of the vote (89,299 votes) in Spokane County.

The Bush campaign's goal for this year is 55.97% of the Spokane County vote, which is expected to be 110,360 votes.

To get those votes, the Bush campaign needs volunteers to go out and recruit more volunteers and to register new Republican voters.

If you are in Spokane County and support President Bush, then you must volunteer. And don't say you don't have time; do you have time to spend four years under a Kerry Administration? You have an hour a week which you can give the President and the nation; I know you do. More is even better, but whatever time you can give is terrific.

So download this form (.TXT file) and fill it out in any text editor. Then e-mail it to me and I will see that it gets to campaign officials. Or come to Franklin Park for the counterprotest on Saturday. I'll have signup forms, and others probably will as well.

Don't wake up on November 3rd to news of a Kerry victory because you were unwilling to give up a golf game or a soap opera.

Update: if you're not registered to vote, do it now. Go to the Washington Secretary of State's site, where you can download a registration form or request one by mail.

Update 2: Or go to the GOP team leader site where you can fill out the registration information online and then print out the form, all ready to mail.

Wictory Wednesday   
John Forbes Kerry is proud that he has (supposedly) received the support of unnamed "foreign leaders." But foreign leaders are, at best, concerned with the interests of their own countries (at worst, they are concerned with their own personal interests), and sometimes the interests even of our allies do not coincide with ours. Kerry's refusal to name the countries whose leaders want him elected should frighten Americans.

In whose interest does Kerry intend to govern? Jacques Chirac's? Jean-Bertrand Aristide's? Kim Jong-Il's? We don't know, because Kerry won't tell us.

We must start defeating this man now.

First, if you're not registered to vote, do it!

Get involved: Sign up as a volunteer. Contact your state and local Republican party. If you're in Spokane County, e-mail me and I will forward your e-mail to the 5th District Grassroots Coordinator. Or just come to the grassroots meeting tonight.

Attend pro-Bush, pro-America, pro-troop rallies in your area, such as the one this Saturday in Franklin Park in Spokane.

Donate: At the official Bush-Cheney 2004 site, or (up to $200) through Amazon.com.

Buy some Bush-Cheney 2004 stuff at the official George W. Bush online store. They have T-shirts, sweatshirts, scarves, hats, coffee mugs, and all kinds of cool doodads, as well as the more traditional campaign accoutrements such as lapel buttons, bumper stickers, and yard and rally signs (I'm partial to the "Americana" and "Bush-Cheney 2004" lines).

He isn't just French-looking   
(Via Blogs for Bush and HobbsOnline.)

John Kerry wants to fight terrorism with a Maginot-Line strategy, making customs agents, airport screeners, local police, and firefighters our first line of defense.

As important as all of these people are, customs agents, airport screeners, and local police are the last lines of defense, and firefighters are responsible for cleaning up the mess when defense fails.

And under a Kerry Administration, defense will fail. We cannot win this war by cowering in our homes waiting for the terrorists to come for us and hoping we can stop them on our doorsteps. Because they will come, as they did on September 11, and we will not always be able to stop them.

George W. Bush knows that we must go after our enemies where they are. If I may indulge in a cliché, the best defense is a good offense.

Kerry's Maginot Plan says not one word--not one single word--about taking the fight to our enemies.

George W. Bush wants to fight terrorists in Iraq and Afghanistan. John Kerry wants to fight them in New York and Washington. Which do you want?

Vote. Donate. Volunteer.

Because America needs your help.

Kerry hobnobs with a terrorist   


"Democratic presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., left, speaks with Martin McGuinness, Sinn Fein's chief negotiater, at a bookstore in Boston's Downtown Crossing Friday, March 12, 2004. McGuiness was in Massachusetts to speak at Harvard's JFK School of Government. (AP Photo/Elise Amendola)"

From the Telegraph:

MARTIN McGUINNESS was the commanding officer of the Provisional IRA's Derry Brigade for at least two years in the early 1970s and a key figure in the campaign of violence waged against British forces in Ulster, according to intelligence documents seen exclusively by The Telegraph....

During that period the Derry Brigade was regarded as one of the IRA's most destructive armed units. Security officials estimate that the terrorist group was responsible for murdering at least 30 members of the security forces, an intensive bombing campaign in Londonderry and numerous terrorist attacks.

A Northern Ireland security official told The Telegraph: "McGuinness was running the IRA in Londonderry for at least two years. He must bear responsibility for many of the atrocities that occurred during that period."

Kerry accused of cowardice   
Adhering to the journalistic standard established by our local litterbox liner, I've decided to link to the Telegraph story in which one of John Kerry's crewmates has accused him of cowardice under fire. Of course, the other members of that crew dispute this account, and one man's account may not be very strong evidence, but it's a lot better than anything the Spokesman-Review offers in support of its claims about President Bush, so what the hell?



Bush-Cheney '04!
The Toilet-Paper, er, I mean the Spokesman-Review smears Bush   
Our local fishwrap of record does its usual thorough job of blasting anti-Republican innuendo across its front page.

Note the one thing which does not appear in this story: any evidence at all that the claims in the piece are true.

This is typical of the Review, of course. I dropped my subscription to the snotrag when they tried to smear the anti-gun-control movement by tying it to a local serial killer.

These people simply cannot be trusted under any circumstances. They are not merely biased; they are thoroughly dishonest.

Remember, if you read it in the Spokesman-Review, it's probably a lie.

CNN: Kerry secures Democratic nomination   
Technically, he's still 27 delegates short, but he has the support of enough unpledged "superdelegates" to put him over the top.



Bush-Cheney '04!
Seattle Post-Intelligencer employed Iraqi spy!   
A former Democratic Congressional and Senate staffer and "anti-war" activist has been arrested for spying on behalf of Iraq's Ba'athists.

What's the Seattle Post-Intelligencer's headline on the AP dispatch?

"Accused spy is cousin of Bush staffer"

Of course, she also worked for several media outlets, including (as you might glean from my headline) the P-I itself.

No media bias here, nosirree!

Kerry has the media on his side (and they will clearly stop at nothing to get him elected). The President needs you. Look in the left-hand sidebar to see how you can get involved to help the President win Washington this November.

Update: Eugene Volokh points out that the woman is in fact not charged with spying, but with being an unregistered foreign agent. You'd think I, of all people, would know better than to assume that media reports are accurate.

Correction:

Apparently the bias was at the AP (though strangely, everyone who reported on this seems to have seen this headline at the P-I rather than anywhere else):

From Mark Steyn's March 21 Chicago Sun-Times column:

David McCumber, managing editor of the Post-Intelligencer, writes to point out that the headline was supplied not by the paper but by the Associated Press. Though it appeared with this headline on the Post-Intelligencer's Web site, by the time the story turned up in the print edition the paper's staff had rewritten it to play up the local angle: ''Former P-I Reporter Accused Of Iraq Ties.''

So what's the motive behind this, anyway? Who really did produce this ad, and why don't the Kerry people want us to know?

"'It was a mistake. It was a different Riverfront Media in another state,' says a Kerry campaign source. Which state? 'I don't know.'"

Mm-hm. Here's a Google search on "Riverfront Media."

So who exactly is "crooked" and "lying," Senator Kerry?

Wictory Wednesday!   

Some are skeptical that the war on terror is really a war at all. Just days ago my opponent indicated he's not comfortable using the word, "war," to describe the struggle we're in. He said, "I don't want to use that terminology." He also said the war on terror is far less of a military operation and far more of an intelligence-gathering, law enforcement operation. I disagree. Our nation followed that approach after the World Trade Center was bombed in 1993. The matter was handled in the courts, and thought by some to be settled. But the terrorists were still training in Afghanistan, plotting in other nations and drawing up more ambitious plans. And after the chaos and carnage of September the 11th, it is not enough to serve our enemies with legal papers. (Applause.) With those attacks, the terrorists and their supporters declared war on the United States of America, and war is what they got. (Applause.)

One very important part of this war is intelligence-gathering, as Senator Kerry noted. Yet, in 1995, two years after the attack on the World Trade Center, my opponent introduced a bill to cut the overall intelligence budget by one-and-a-half billion dollars. His bill was so deeply irresponsible that he didn't have a single co-sponsor in the United States Senate. Once again, Senator Kerry is trying to have it both ways. He's for good intelligence, yet he was willing to gut the intelligence services. And that is no way to lead a nation in a time of war. (Applause.)

Our intelligence professionals are taking great risks and doing a great job. And so are the men and women of the United States military. At bases across our country and the world, I have had the privilege of meeting with those who defend our country and sacrifice for our security. I've seen the great decency and their unselfish courage. I assure you, ladies and gentlemen, the cause of freedom is in good hands. (Applause.)
--President Bush, March 8, 2004

The Caucuses   
Well, as you know if you're among the regular readers of this blog (yeah, right: "regular readers"), the Washington State GOP precinct caucuses were tonight.

My precinct (one of many which shared a grade-school gym) was the object of much envy because there were three of us, including the Precinct Committee Officer. This turnout was well above average.

Coincidentally, my precinct also gets three delegates to the county convention in April, so now I'm a county convention delegate. It just goes to show you that your parents were right: in America, any young boy can grow up to be a county convention delegate.

We also had Shaun Cross, one of the 5th District Congressional candidates, in attendance, and my own PCO is the father of Cathy McMorris, another candidate. (The other two GOP candidates are Larry Sheahan, who had a staff member present to pass out literature, and Todd Mielke.)

Oh, and Jim Camden from the Birdcage-Liner, er, I mean the Spokesman-Review was there.

Update: Here's Camden's story and one from KREM.com.

RNC: Even Democrats were afraid of Kerry's proposed intelligence cuts   
Why, yes, this is the same John Kerry who is busily criticizing the President for intelligence failures in Iraq.

Just as it's the same John Kerry who claims the President denied our troops body armor after he himself voted to deny our troops body armor.

Perhaps I'm a cockeyed optimist (though I'm normally more the cynical pessimist type), but I can't believe the American people are going to send this creepy weasel to the White House.

But we still need to work hard to make sure it doesn't happen.



Bush-Cheney '04!
Eeeeeh, its a secret.   
TIME: Would you say your position on Iraq is a) it was a mistaken war; b) it was a necessary war fought in a bad way; or c) fill in the blank?
KERRY: I think George Bush rushed to war without exhausting the remedies available to him, without exhausting the diplomacy necessary to put the U.S. in the strongest position possible, without pulling together the logistics and the plan to shore up Iraq immediately and effectively.

TIME: And you as Commander in Chief would not have made these mistakes but would have gone to war?
KERRY: I didn't say that.

TIME: I'm asking.
KERRY: I can't tell you.

Teresa Heinz-Kerry: moral leper   
"When Teresa Heinz-Kerry arrived, she handed me a pin that read in the center: 'Asses of Evil' with 'Bush', 'Cheney', 'Rumsfeld' and 'Ashcroft' surrounding it."

This, of course, utterly disqualifies Ms. Heinz's husband from serving as President, but the "news" media will never, ever report it.

Update: Drudge has it now, but it's just a link to the Kerry blog. However, it's possible that Fox News, some conservative pundits, and possibly Limbaugh and/or Hannity might pick it up, giving it some traction.

9/11 families respond to the Heinz-funded attack on the President   
"There is no better testament to the leadership of President Bush than Sept. 11," the letter states. "In choosing our next leader we must not forget that day if we are to have a meaningful conversation....

"In the November election we will have a clear choice laid before the American people," the letter reads. "President Bush is rightly offering us that choice and the images of Sept. 11, although painful, are fundamental to that choice. The images in President Bush's campaign television ads are respectful of the memories of Sept. 11."

Bush-Cheney '04!
Wictory Wednesday!   
For the first time in my lifetime, I believe that the future of the Republic may actually hinge on the outcome of a single election. Not only would a President John Forbes Kerry return to the old way of dealing with (or, rather, not dealing with) terrorists--the way which led to September 11--but he would appoint federal judges who will continue the judicial assault on the rule of law. It would be nice if Congress had the guts to impeach and remove the black-robed would-be tyrants, but guts are in sadly short supply in those precincts. The only practical defense against the leftist judiciary's continued destruction of republican government is the re-election of President Bush--preferably with an increased Senate majority which will allow him to get more judges confirmed.
