Fred Thompson

still competitive in Iowa....

Note from his campaign staff:
"I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know that we've more than exceeded our goal of $248,846, and raised over $266,000. We issued a bold challenge, and you responded in kind. Our new ad 'Substance,' which began running today, will stay on the air in Iowa statewide through the Caucus on January 3rd. Thank you very much to everyone who contributed. It means a lot to Fred while he's in Iowa campaigning hard."

The prosperity gospel preachers...

Patriot Post for Thompson

“I don’t question the validity of praising Fred Thompson for being the first major candidate to present a feasible plan for fixing Social Security, but your seemingly unqualified support for him and belief that he should be the next Republican Party presidential nominee is, at best, confusing.” —Colorado Springs, Colorado

Editor’s Reply: “Unqualified support?” We give the highest ranking to Thompson because, as noted in our 2008 Presidential Candidate Profiles, when taking into account all the qualifications necessary for a successful presidency—record, experience, capability, character, qualifications and, of course, their ability to read and understand our Constitution as it was written, Thompson comes out on top. Do we agree with every thing he supports or does not support—no... nor is that true with any other candidate. In fact, if the only criterion was “constitutional constructionism” Ron Paul would come out on top. But Thompson stands head and shoulders above the other candidates when it comes to overall qualifications.

Food for Thought

A man whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War Two owned a number of large industries and estates. When asked how many German peoplewere true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism.

"Very few people were true Nazis "he said," but many enjoyed the return ofGerman pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those whojust thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories"

We are told again and again by "experts" and "talking heads" that Islam is the religion of peace, and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant.It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the specter of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.

The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history.

It is the fanatics who march.It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout
Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honor kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and
homosexuals.The hard quantifiable fact is that the "peaceful majority", the "silent majority" is cowed and extraneous. Communist Russia comprised Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people.

The peaceful majority were irrelevant. China's huge population, it was peaceful as well,
but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people.

The average Japanese individual prior to World War 2 was not a warmongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asian an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword, shovel and bayonet.

And, who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery. Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were "peace loving"? History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our powers of reason we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points: Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence. Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don't speak up, because like my friend from Germany, they will awake one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will have begun.

Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans,
Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because
the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late. As for us who watch it all unfold; we must pay attention to the only group that counts; the fanatics who threaten our way of life.

Lastly, at the risk of offending, anyone who doubts that the issue is erious and just deletes
this email without sending it on, can contribute tothe passiveness that allows the problems to expand. So, extend yourself a bit and send this on and on and on!! Let us hope that thousands, world wide, read this - think about it - and send it on.

France

“No Western nation has done more than the France of retiring President Jacques Chirac to undermine our foreign policy. But anti-Americanism in France, like anti-Americanism in America, largely is confined to a privileged elite... His win is the most significant because it was the most decisive; it came in the country where official anti-American sentiment was greatest, and because France has a seat on the UN Security Council. What this could mean is that the diplomatic cooperation we didn’t get from Europe with regard to Iraq may be forthcoming in confrontations with Iran and Syria. The (long) odds that their rogue behavior can be reined in without war have gone up. However heartened we are by the warm applause Mr. Sarkozy’s pro American sentiments received, we must assume he was elected more in spite of them than because of them. Sarko won because a solid majority of Frenchmen are disgusted with the sclerotic economy French socialism has produced, and are frightened and angered by a rising crime rate, especially in the Muslim-dominated suburbs. He will succeed or fail depending on how he does domestically... In the meantime, we have a friend in the Elysee Palace for the first time in a very, very long time. That’s something to toast with French champagne.” —Jack Kelly

A New Direction

The Democrats now promise "A New Direction For America ".

"The stock market is at a new all-time high and America's 401 K's are back.

A new direction from there means, what?

Unemployment is at 25 year lows.

A new direction from there means, what?

Taxes are at 20 year lows.

A new direction from there means, what?

Federal tax revenues are at all-time highs.

A new direction from there means, what?

The Federal deficit is down almost 50%, just as predicted over last year.

A new direction from there means. what? Home valuations are up 200% over the past 3.5 years.

A new direction from there means, what?

Inflation is in check, hovering at 20 year lows.

A new direction from there means, what?

Not a single terrorist attack on US soil since 9/11/ 01 .

A new direction from there means, what?

Osama bin Laden is living under a rock in a dark cave, having not surfaced in years, if he's alive at all, while 95% of Al Qaida's top dogs are either dead or in custody, cooperating with US Intel.

A new direction from there means, what?

Several major terrorist attacks already thwarted by US and British Intel, including the recent planned attack involving 10 Jumbo Jets being exploded in mid-air over major US cities in order to celebrate the anniversary of the 9/11/ 01 attacks.

A new direction from there means, what?

Just as President Bush foretold us on a number of occasions, Iraq was to be made "ground zero" for the war on terrorism -- and just as President Bush said they would, terrorist cells from all over the region are arriving from the shadows of their hiding places and flooding into Iraq in order to gettheir faces blown off by US Marines rather than boarding planes and heading to the United States to wage war on us here.

A new direction from there means, what?

Now let me see, do I have this right?

I can expect:

The economy to go South

Illegals to go North Taxes to go Up

Employment to go Down

Terrorism to come In

Tax breaks to go Out

Social Security to go Away

Health Care to go the same way gas prices have gone

But what the heck! I can gain comfort by knowing that Nancy P, Hillary C, John K, Edward K,Howard D, Harry R and Obama have worked hard to create a comprehensive National Security Plan, Health Care Plan, Immigration Reform Plan, Gay Rights Plan, Same Sex Marriage Plan, Abortion On Demand Plan, Tolerance of Everyone and Everything Plan, How to Return all Troops to the U. S. in The Next Six Months Plan, A Get Tough Plan, adapted from the French Plan by the same name and a How Everyone Can Become as Wealthy as We Are Plan. I forgot the No More Katrina Storm Plan.

Now I know why I feel good after the elections. I am going to be able to sleep so much better at nights knowing these dedicated politicians are thinking of me and my welfare.
