Camille Paglia

I usualy avoid Salon like I would any bad area :) But I foolishly followed a Drudge link without looking to see where it would go and I arrived there :(

I'm glad I did. Camille seems to be what the Democratic party needs to hear more of. Granted she has her hang-ups like any good lefty does (mainly the war in Iraq and W not be articulate enough), but she says quite afew things that the left really needs to hear to become a great party once again.

Politics in America is always better with two strong parties. Hopefully the right will turn back around to where they were a few years ago, but until the left decides to live in this world instead of complaining about it, there won't be an opposition that will make the right straighten up. It's beyond scary to think of people that would vote for the present-day Democratic agenda just because they are upset with the current Republican leadership. If the horse you have isn't running fast enough, you don't buy a mule to replace it.
What has been your reaction to the huge uproar over Rep. Mark Foley, which was on the front pages of newspapers in Europe as well as the U.S. for two straight weeks?

Foley is obviously a moral degenerate, and the Republican House leadership has come across as pathetically bumbling and ineffectual. But the idea that this is some sort of major scandal in the history of American politics is ludicrous. This was a story that needed to be told for, you know, like two days.

Mark Foley was never on the radar of anyone outside the small circle of news junkies. So his fall and banishment from Washington were nothing but a drip in the torrential flood of current geopolitical problems. The way the Democratic leadership was in clear collusion with the major media to push this story in the month before the midterm election seems to me to have been a big fat gift to Ann Coulter and the other conservative commentators who say the mainstream media are simply the lapdogs of the Democrats. Every time I turned on the news it was "Foley, Foley, Foley!" -- and in suspiciously similar language and repetitive talking points.

Salon interview with Camille Paglia
I would encourage everyone to read the whole thing (scim the lefty parts if you must) and see what trouble we the right could be in if this opinion takes hold. Of course if the left were to become (most of) this woman's vision, the right would either have to strengthen up or become the moonbats of tomorrow.

Where are the women's right groups?

Sheik Taj Din Al Hilaly, a moslem leader in Australia recently made a speech about women. (h/t LGF)

In this 'shocking' speech, Hilaly states that rape and adultery are basically the fault of Woman.
“When it comes to adultery, it’s 90 percent the woman’s responsibility. Why? Because a woman owns the weapon of seduction. It’s she who takes off her clothes, shortens them, flirts, puts on make-up and powder and takes to the streets, God protect us, dallying. It’s she who shortens, raises and lowers. Then, it’s a look, a smile, a conversation, a greeting, a talk, a date, a meeting, a crime, then Long Bay jail. Then you get a judge, who has no mercy, and he gives you 65 years.”


This speech isn't a 'fringe' speech by a 'radical' muslim, this is what most of the muslims you see and hear on TV believe. In Islam, if a woman claims rape, she must have witnesses to back her up (male of course) or she is guilty. If a man feels he needs to beat his wife, Islam promotes and protects that. Women are treated worse than most slaves were treated in the pre-civil war south and not one women's rights groups (or heck not even many human rights groups) protest Islam that I can find.

If someone in this country speaks sharply to a woman, or touches her in a 'familiar' way, they could and probably will be labeled a sexist and face penalties. Women's rights groups will harp continuously in the US about any wrong done to women (note: I don't believe in abusing anyone and can't stand people that would hit their spouse in the name of love...) yet will be strangely silent when women are treated worse than animals in other countries. "You can't understand their culture." I hear that alot when speaking about conditions for women or 'infedels' in other countries, yet no one explains how understanding their culture would ever make this right.

In New Jersey, the Supreme Court has decided that the will of the people is superceded by the will of the Justices and told the legislature it has 180 days to rewrite the marriage laws to either 1) include a civil union or 2) make marriage legal for gay people. You'll find lots of women's rights groups, gay groups (under various monikers) and others that applaud that decision. Yet not one of these groups will protest the fact that in a Muslim country, not only do gays not get to marry or have civil unions, they are in fact executed for being a homosexual.

There is something severly wrong with this country when most of the complaining, legal work and typical b.s. are about more alleged wrongs in this country than about real wrongs in other countries.

Campaigning

Reading over at Observations picked this thought up:


Negative campaigning rules the day. Once one candidate employs negative ads, his or her opponent has little choice but to respond in kind. The result is that the American voter is attacked by a barrage of negative ads devoid of discussion of relevant and important issues. Is it any wonder, then, that we have the people we have in elected office?

Observations


I've been thinking about this same thing for awhile now. Is there one candidate or could there ever be one candidate (left or right) that could win an election (on any level) only using their own strong points and no negativity? This seems a two point question. Point 1 is there a candidate now or in the future that WILL run without using the 'tricks' that politicians use to win and smear the other guy. Point 2 is there a chance said person could win any election without using smear and such?


Maybe one day we'll get to find out. If I ever run for office, I hope I would be able to use the issues and my positions on them to get the votes, but since I'm not running, it's easier for me to say that.


Also, this little snippet:


Final comment on the election: The Republicans have done nothing to deserve being kept in the majority in the House and Senate, but the Democrats have done nothing to deserve replacing them.

Observations


This seems a popular thought on blogs on the right, yet these same blogs will quickly be able to give you the list of republican 'goods' that the democrats wouldn't have done. If you can defend your party (and do it well I might add) then what makes you think they didn't DESERVE it? All of the accomplishments that the republicans have put through since 9/11 are still accomplishments even when scandals break just before an election. Don't do the MSM's job for them by claiming the R's don't deserve to be in office.

Gov't wakeup?

Seems at least some people in the gov't have decided that Al-CNN is against the US. Word comes from KESQ TV:
SAN DIEGO The chair of the House Armed Services Committee asked the Pentagon today to remove C-N-N reporters embedded with U-S combat units.
The network televised portions of a video on Wednesday showing insurgent snipers targeting U-S military personnel.

Executives said the tape came to the network unexpectedly through contact with an insurgent leader.

Representative Duncan Hunter wrote in his letter that, quote, "C-N-N has now served as the publicist for an enemy propaganda film featuring the killing of an American soldier."
Story

When the gov't finally starts taking what the MSM says seriously enough to realize that they aren't 'neutral' then we'll start seeing a MSM that becomes neutral again.
But somehow, I doubt it.

    Al-CNN

    Al-CNN showed extremely bad judgment if they showed the tape for ‘journalistic honesty’ as they claim, but good judgment if they did it as propaganda for the enemy in Iraq.

    I have not and will not watch the video, unlike most moonbats, I realize that in war ‘actual’ people get killed and do not need to see it. Al-CNN hasn’t shown one piece (that I can find) of Americans killing ‘insurgents’ but as ratings decline (hello Fox) they felt they needed something to boost the bottom line. That and trying their best (the MSM in particular) into turning this war into Vietnam II.

    There have been many comparisons to this Ramadan and the Tet offensive during the Vietnam war. What most people don’t know (or realize) is that the Tet was a serious loss for the Communist forces and should have been the major turning point in the war in FAVOR of the U.S. and south Vietnamese. But, thanks to the MSM of the time, it became a major turning point away from winning that war. Realistically it’s hard to imagine losing a war that you win every battle in, but thanks to the MSM propaganda machine, that’s what happened.

    The MSM of today, the Al-CNN’s, Al-Reuters, et al, are trying their best (with help from the dhimmikrauts) of losing the war in Iraq. From Rosie (wrong) O’Donnell to ex-President Carter, there’s plenty of help for the MSM war machine.

    What can you/we do to stop this? Nothing, but we can help our country and our soldiers by voting this November and voting Republican. There’s no way our servicemen will survive or Iraq as a country will prosper if the dhimmis win Congress this year. The next two years would simply be impeachment and withdrawal. People need to really look in a mirror and decide if ‘punishing the republicans’ is worth what the results will entail.

    VOTE: it’s not a privilege, it’s not a right, it’s a DUTY

    Harry Reid

    From HotAir comes a Republican video about Harry "I'll amend my ethics" Reid and various other Dhimmikruat scandlas in a political ad.

    The ad itself needs more 'umphh' but at least it would get the word out (since the MSM isn't to helpful) on the fact that both parties seem to have thier problems and it should be the issues that decide votes, not the scandals. It's amazing that the scandals will dry up shortly after the vote, because they no longer matter then. The next major group of scandals will happen just before the next election. But what's more amazing is the number of people that vote based on scandals. They willingly vote for a candidate (or not against them) that doesn't share any of their views on the major issues because a 'scandal' was revealed before the election. These people need to be better educated on the issues. Especially what is important to them, there is no reason to vote for someone that is against what you believe in simply because of a scandal.

    Will this work? Not only are all these little influence scandals submerged in Foleygate, but after Duke Cunningham and Abramoff, a tu quoque about Democratic corruption isn’t the strongest card the GOP has to play. I hope.Nice to see Dirty Harry eat a little shinola, though. Click the image to watch.

    Iraqi War

    From the pages of USA Today comes a suprisingly pro-military piece on the Iraqi war:
    USA TODAY
    Our strategy is not static By Mark Kimmitt 2 hours, 14 minutes ago Most militaries know that success in war argues against an inflexible approach to strategy and tactics. Militaries that remain foolishly consistent and unable to react to an evolving tactical environment are likely to fail. The enemy we face inIraq,Afghanistan and elsewhere in the war on terrorism is a thinking enemy, and a thinking enemy will always seek to find an operational advantage, a seam in our defenses, or a weakness in our plan and tactics.

    Mark Kimmitt is deputy secretary of Defense for the Middle East.

    ACLU Most Conservative Organization in America

    According to them. hmm


    In the traditional sense, conservative means resistant to change or opposing change and they fit that bill somewhat (they refuse to believe that anything has happened since 9/10/01). Otherwise their claim falls short.


    They claim to fight to 'conserve the system of checks and balances and defend the Bill of Rights'. But they actually only try to defend against the Bill of Rights unless you are anti-christian, then they will help you gladly.


    The ACLU is for terrorists rights, foreign rights, immigrant rights, non-christian rights, abortion rights and deathly defends the establishment clause. They fail to take note that the establishment clause comes in two parts and that they are basically violating the second part with each religion-based lawsuit they jump on. Hopefully soon, someone will sue them for violating it, but we'll have to wait and see.


    Stop The ACLU

    Jay has this to add:
    One thing the ACLU is working to conserve is voter fraud. Conserving the right to vote for illegal immigrants, convicted felons, and dead people goes right along with the ACLU’s agenda to get dhimmicrats elected this election cycle. The ACLU expressed its disappointment when the House passed the Federal Election Integrity Act of 2006,” requiring voters to present a government-issued photo ID in order to vote in federal elections. In Missouri at least 16 St. Louis area Democrats were found guilty of election crimes in the last year and a half and now there is even more fraud going on. When Republican Gov. Matt Blunt signed a law requiring voters to provide I.D. the ACLU represented a group of Democrats to challenge the law. It was successful in striking down a similar law in Georgia and with the help of the 9th Circuit Arizona as well. They also fought voter ID laws in New Mexico, Michigan, and Indiana. Unfortunately for the ACLU they may not be able to pull things off in time over in Indiana.
    Stop The ACLU

    If the ACLU is allowed to continue to work actively against the US government and our people's rights, it will be the first step toward dhimmification of this country. More people need to look hard into just what the ACLU is doing and help to stop them. Support people like Jay and write to your congressmen about them as often as you can.

    NFL Stadiums threatened with 'dirty' bombs

    Stop The ACLU has the story about this latest threat.


    Like Jay (and the experts) I don't think this is a credible threat (odds are against terrorists getting 7 dirty bombs, much less one to an NFL stadium. But there is a possibility thanks to the ACLU.


    As Jay writes:


    Well, that isn’t exactly true. Thanks to the a lawsuit from the ACLU, Tampa’s Raymond James Studio were forced to stop all their searches. The ACLU also filed suit against the 49′rs to do halt their searches as well. I’m not sure if that case is settled or not. Surprising that they are not on the list being how easy the ACLU made it for them in Tampa. Hopefully the FBI’s scepticism is right and there is nothing to worry about. Still, threats like this highlight why security proceedures at these kind of events are so important, and why groups like the ACLU fighting against them is so dangerous

    Stop The ACLU


    He's referring to the security at NFL staduims after the ACLU got through with them, it's very scary to someone that has been and will go again to an NFL game.

    At a luncheon with editors and reporters at The Washington Times, Mr. Rove -- who is widely credited as the architect of the party's historic 2002 midterm election gains -- said Republicans are beginning to make significant headway in defining their party's differences from congressional Democrats, especially on national security.

    Thanks to an alert reader, we'd like to direct your attention to a speech that Retired U.S. Army Gen. Wesley Clark delivered at The University of Alabama on Friday. The former presidential candidate and current military analyst for Fox News had this to say about U.S. foreign policy and the Israeli war with Hezbollah:

    There's a lot of demonstrations out there against the American government and its policies. We've made some serious, serious mistakes, the latest being - it's hard to pick the latest - but one of them, recently, was the one where we sided with the Israelis in that air campaign in Lebanon. And instead of stopping the bombing, we were cheerleading it. It hurt Israel, it hurt Lebanon, and it hurt us. It helped Iran.

    Jawdropper of the Day (via LFG)

    Best comment from fjordman:
    No, it's anarcho-tyranny. The less control the authorities have with Muslims, the more control they want to exercise over non-Muslims. As problems in Europe get worse, which they will, the EU will move in an increasingly repressive direction until it either becomes a true, totalitarian entity or falls apart. This strange mix of powerful censorship of public debate, yet little control over public law and order, has by some been labelled anarcho-tyranny.

    The reason why European authorities are becoming increasingly totalitarian in their censorship efforts is to conceal the fact that they are no longer willing or able to uphold even the most basic security of their citizenry. If their governments are no longer capable of protecting them and their freedom of speech, Europeans may have to arm themselves to do this on their own. Michael Moore’s books, ridiculing American “gun nuts,” are bestsellers in Europe. Sadly, The Bill of Rights is less popular reading. Perhaps the time has come for Europeans to also take a second look at the Second Amendment – The right for the people to keep and bear arms.

    Marvellous: Britain gets a “First Amendment”
    by jonjayray on 10-12-06 @ 5:34 pm Filed under ACLU, News

    Americans must find the ongoing role of the House of Lords in the government of Britain to be puzzling at best and a total anachronism at worst. Yet it is not so. In recent years, the Lords have been tenacious defenders of once-treasured English liberties. They resisted tooth and nail the ban on hunting with hounds, for instance.

    Aircraft hits Manhattan building; 2 dead

    By COLEEN LONG, Associated Press Writer 14 minutes ago

    NEW YORK - A small plane crashed into an Upper East Side high-rise Wednesday, shooting flames out the windows, raining debris on the sidewalks below and rattling New Yorkers' nerves exactly one month after the fifth anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attack. Police confirmed 2 people are dead.


    Waiting for the investigation, but they don't suspect terrorism.

    Taxes

    A news article in the USAToday (vast right-wing newspaper...heh) says it all:

    Income tax cuts benefit all players

    By Kevin McCoy, USA TODAY
    Americans of every income have benefited from a drop in federal income tax rates as Bush administration tax cuts enacted since 2000 took effect, an independent analysis of newly released IRS data shows.

    But those earning $75,000 to $500,000 are shouldering a larger share of total taxes paid as millions more of them earn higher incomes and get hit with the Alternative Minimum Tax, the analysis also found.

    The review by the Tax Foundation, a non-partisan research group that favors low taxes, provides one of the first detailed looks at the impact of federal tax changes phased in between 2000 and 2004.

  • Now if someone could explain this to the people that still are upset about the 'rich' tax cuts, we'll all feel better.
