Even for other Left-Wing Propagandists!

Like New York Senator
Hillary Clinton, Wisconsin Senator Russ Feingold has been busy the last few
years trying to establish a more moderate public image, sometimes distancing
himself from the far left extreme base in control of today’s Democratic
Party, often working with folks across the aisle like Arizona Senator John
McCain, who have already established themselves as world class RINO’s, (Republican
In Name Only).
As the 2006 mid-term
elections draw near, and Feingold begins to set his sights on a Presidential
run in 2008, he must find a way to re-connect with that left-wing base if he
hopes to have even a snowballs chance in a Presidential bid. It would also help
better align him as a potential VP choice in a Hillary bid for the White House.
But the eager beaver from
Wisconsin may have
stepped too far out on the political rhetoric limb in his recent senate
proposal to censure President Bush for his alleged illegal wiretap program
operated by the NSA. It’s no surprise his proposal is drawing fire from
both conservatives and moderates across the aisle. But even power-starved
left-wingers in his own camp are running from this proposal, smart enough to
realize that most Americans (even a few liberals) know the difference between
illegally wiretapping innocent Americans and normal intelligence operations
aimed at tracking and capturing terrorists and would be bombers currently
enjoying American freedoms and liberties.
Asked at a news
conference whether he would vote for the censure resolution, Senate Minority
Leader Harry Reid of Nevada
declined to endorse it. Sen. Joe Lieberman, D-Conn., said he had not read it
either and wasn't inclined simply to scold the president. "I'd prefer to see us solve the problem,"
Lieberman told reporters. What a concept, solving a potential problem versus
exploiting every problem, even where no problem exists…
drew empathy but no outright support from Democratic Leaders like Nancy Pelosi
across the hall either.
"A formal censure by Congress is an appropriate and
responsible first step to assure the public that when the president thinks he
can violate the law without consequences, Congress has the will to hold him
accountable," Feingold said in prepared remarks. A clear
oversight of the fact that no laws have been broken, no innocent Americans have
been “spied” on, and Bush has not only a right, but a
responsibility to use all legal available means to track terrorists here and
The censure resolution
reads: "Resolved that the United States Senate does hereby censure George W. Bush, president
of the United States, and does condemn his unlawful authorization of
wiretaps of Americans within the United States without obtaining the court orders required."
The most disturbing part
of this nonsense is the notion that would-be terrorists currently plotting and
planning the next 9/11 from the comfort of a US
residence, would qualify as “innocent Americans”, or Americans of
any sort for that matter. A great example of just how delusional and perverted
the progressive logic really
is…not to mention dangerous.
Throwing down the
gauntlet, VP Dick Cheney said “The
outrageous proposition that we ought to protect our enemies' ability to
communicate as it plots against America poses a key test of our Democratic leaders."
"Do they support the extreme and
counterproductive antics of a few or do they support a lawful program vital to
the security of this nation?” he added…noting, "The American people already made their decision,
they agree with the president."
That they have… and
just as Cheney suggests, most Americans support the idea that the President has
a very real responsibility to use our intelligence agencies to track would-be
killers, especially if they are already on American soil, and we know they are.
The very idea that we would not use all available intelligence resources to
trace communications between Al Qaeda cells operating abroad, and Al Qaeda
cells or sympathizers operating here, is insane. But then, have we not come to
expect insanity from the left-wing nuts among us? Including those who
unfortunately fooled local constituents into electing them to national
Likewise, the notion that
such a program would be vetted through known enemy sympathizers like Sen.
Rockefeller and several others is also insane. Rockefeller traveled to Syria
with Top Secret security information a month after 9/11, for the sole purpose
of warning our enemies of our not-so-secret
plans regarding Iraq.
Regime change in Iraq
was the established US
policy on Iraq
long before Bush ever took office. But Rockefeller sensed that Bush would
actually act on that policy, and he used his position on the Senate
Intelligence Committee to become an enemy informant, plain and simple. So
keeping Top Secret information secret in that committee had already been proven
Now, many ill-informed
average Americans are largely unaware of these and many other facts. But people
like Feingold are very much aware, which is to say, efforts like this censure
proposal by Feingold are outright overt attempts to intentionally mislead the
public. They are not just getting it wrong - they are intentionally creating or
perpetuating an outright lie.
democrats are now and must remain far from any political power. Despite their
“culture of corruption” campaign mantra targeting Republicans, most
Americans can see with their own eyes, the “culture of deceit and destruction”
which consumes today’s DNC.
MoveOn.org and Hollyweird
types will of course embrace and rally behind the lie. But already, people even
on the left, with a reluctant minimal knowledge of reality and an uncomfortable
ounce of common sense, are running from Feingold’s proposed resolution
like it’s laced with the black plague.
Senate Majority Leader
Bill Frist said: "Senator Feingold's
time would be better spent putting forth constructive ideas rather than using
cheap political tricks that compromise America's national security by sending a dangerous signal of
disunity around the globe."
Feingold stood alone in
the senate to oppose the 2001 Patriot Act. Two weeks ago, he and only three
other senators opposed a renewal of the law, even with new curbs on police
All of Feingold’s
recent leaps to the left will undoubtedly win him favor among left-wing
wacko’s from sea to shining sea. But that number is shrinking not growing
and it has never been more than an insignificant nutty few anyway.
His efforts will gain the
support of the far left. However, the absence of the sheep’s clothing
once again, reveals the wolf beneath…. If Americans can’t agree on
this, they can’t agree on anything!
