Islamic Republic of America: Part 10

Back to picking on Islamofascism apologist John Esposito.

Before we delve into some of his published statements, it bears pointing out that we’re not talking about a mere scribe here. Esposito has served as president of the Middle East Studies Assocation and the American Council for the Study of Islamic Societies. As such, he has been in a position to influence the direction of scholarship on Islam in America, for better or worse.

Furthermore, Esposito is the founding director of Georgetown University’s Prince Waleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding. Hmm, where have we heard that name before?

Oh, yeah. Prince Wally, as he probably wouldn’t like to be known, is, as you might guess, a member of the Saudi royal family. He’s also the fifth or eighth wealthiest dude in the world, depending on the year and the yardstick. Probably the most newsworthy thing he did was offer New York City $10 million right after 9/11 for relief. It was famously thrown back in his face—and most deservedly so—by Hizzoner Rudy Guiliani, who didn’t like the polemical strings attached to it. Prince Wally had basically said in so many words that we had brought the attack upon ourselves by our misguided foreign policies. (Read “Israel.”)

Which brings us back to Professor Esposito. That’s pretty much his position on that issue, too. Just coincidentally, of course. The Georgetown Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding is the recipient of a $20 million endowment from Prince Wally, who gave the same amount to Harvard for a similar purpose. They had no such compunctions about accepting the Prince's money--or, apparently, foisting his worldview upon Americans.

So, what does Rudy Guiliani know that Georgetown and Harvard don’t? Try intellectual honesty for starters.

Mojo workin’ again

Our man in Tehran, Mahmoud “Mojo” Ahmadinejad, is at it again—trying to mess with American minds. His letter Wednesday to Americans—and to Dhimmicrats, too—is again something entirely different from what it appears. Last time, in May, The Roscoe Daley Report broke the news that beneath the surface Mojo’s letter to President Bush was a formulaic challenge to accept Islam or face the consequences.

Now, he’s doing the same with the rest of us. Beneath the soothing, slithery words lies the same veiled threat—repent of your wicked ways, accept Islam (“submission”) or face the consequences (jihad).

The giveaways are at the top and the bottom. Mojo concludes his missive with words from the Quran that are a backhanded slap at Christianity: “Glorified is God and Exalted above any partners they ascribe to Him.” [Emphasis added.] Translation: Christian infidels, drop your blasphemous beliefs that God has a Son. (BTW, I don’t know if Mojo is quite this screwed up himself, but many of his ilk believe that Mary is supposed to be the third person of the Trinity.)

Mojo opens with an equally ominous statement: “O, Almighty God, bestow upon humanity the perfect human being promised to all by You, and make us among his followers.” [Emphasis added.] Translation: He’s referring to the Mahdi or the 12th Imam, the Islamic messiah who will come in the last days to slay the infidels, destroy Israel, indict Karl Rove, etc.

The key here is that Mojo considers himself the advance man for the Madhi, who can only come when conditions are right—i.e., all of Islam pitted against all the infidels. Which means Mojo’s mission is to create those conditions through maximum disorder and conflict—the pious words of his epistle notwithstanding.

He who has ears to hear, let him hear. . .

We wonder: How many Dhimmicrats, who have played right into Mojo’s hand on Bush and the Iraq war, do you suppose will actually be taken in by this new nonsense, couched in the deceptive rhetoric of peace?

Islamic Republic of America: Part 9

So, what about those books by John Esposito? What in them has made them so attractive for Ibrahim Hooper’s Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) to underwrite their placement in public libraries across America?

Well, here’s what the review said in part about Esposito’s Islam: The Straight Path:

Most westerners equate Islam with terrorism. The reason is simple: Muslims rarely make the evening news unless engaged in hijackings, suicide bomb attacks or bloody confrontations with Israelis or with their co-religionists. In this 3rd edition of his book on Islam, John Esposito does much to correct this and other pervasive misconceptions surrounding this great world religion.

See? You probably thought we equated Islam with terrorism because most terrorists are Muslim. Silly you. Just shows you haven’t been reading enough Esposito—or CAIR press releases.

In fact, when CAIR’s chairman, Parvez Ahmed, publicly chided President Bush over his use of the term “Islamic fascism,” he challenged the administration to show a relationship between terrorism and any particular religion. This particular outrageous claim was conspicuously omitted in most mainstream mediocracy accounts, leaving one to wonder how it would have been treated if the administration had told such a whopper.

On the other hand, here’s a somewhat more critical take on another Esposito book, Unholy War: Terror in the Name of Islam (from The Weekly Standard, May 27, 2002):

So the events of September 11 represent a political and intellectual crisis for Esposito, who has long championed the view that the Islamic threat is phony or exaggerated: The West has falsely and prejudicially portrayed Muslims as radically other, the problems of the Islamic world are a legacy of Western colonial domination, and Muslim terrorism, however regrettable, is best understood as a reaction to America's one-sided support for Israel and the sanctions America has so cruelly imposed upon the people of Iraq.

Got that? The Islamic threat is phony and exaggerated, a product of our own ugly prejudice—and a result of our own misguided policies. We’ve only brought these things upon ourselves. Pay no attention to that terrorist behind the curtain. . .

Islamic Republic of America: Part 8

To call John Esposito a whore would be doing a grave disservice to the world’s oldest profession. At least whores are honest, more or less, about the nature of their business and whose side they’re on. Esposito doesn’t even begin to rise to that level.

So, who the heck is John Esposito?

He is an author and Georgetown University professor of Religion and International Affairs and director of the Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding there. (We’ll have more to say about all that at a later date.) He’s also the man Campus Watch calls the leading “apologist” for radical Islam. The fact that the Saudi-Wahhabi Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) pays to have Esposito’s books placed in “thousands of libraries across America” ought to tell us something.

So, now it’s big news when this “expert” pops off on the pope’s trip to Turkey. Pope Benedict XVI, you’ll remember, set off riots around the world by Islamniacs who were told the pontiff had insulted Islam, when all he had done was quote some medieval figure as representative of the other side in a religious debate. Forget little subtleties like whether the charge is even true or not. Draw your steel: Infidels have just shown some bare neck.

“Have Muslims overreacted to the pope’s statement?” Esposito asks in an article in Washington Report on Middle East Affairs. Then, incredibly he answers his own question: “Their responses need to be understood in the context of our post-9/11 world, with its greater polarization and alarming increases in Islamophobia. Many Muslims feel under siege.”

Oh, stop. You're killing me. My heart fain would break in twain.

Esposito goes on, in his predictably elitist fashion, to suggest that what is needed is more “dialogue.” To which we say dialogue, yes—if “get your knife off my children’s throats” qualifies as dialogue. And, dialogue, yes, if by that you mean encouraging the emergence of moderate Islamic leadership such as the Center for Islamic Pluralism, which rejects violence and truly seeks interfaith peace.

But absolutely no, if “dialogue” is just a code word for whoring for radicalism—like John Esposito does.

More to come…

ROSCOE’S Weak-End Review

Islamic Republic of America: Part 7

Currently reading Now They Call Me Infidel by Nonie Darwish, just off the presses. Nonie is a delightful lady, a former Egyptian Muslim, steeped in jihad and anti-Semitism, now an evangelical Christian living in America. Our interest was piqued by the opportunity to interview her for a project around the question of Islamofascism as an appropriate term. (Oh, is it ever.)

Nonie was one of the folks featured in the excellent documentary, Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West. She now heads an organization called Arabs for Israel and speaks around the country—or tries to. Seems some of our esteemed institutions of higher learning have sacrificed the free marketplace of ideas upon the altar of political correctness. In other words, you can’t say that here. She’s been canceled at several colleges and universities as too controversial after pressure being brought to bear from certain quarters.

One place where the issue of Nonie’s appearance is still being fought out is Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. If you check out their Web site, you’ll find lots of other interesting things that suggest broadmindedness to a fault—particularly an openness and interest in public nudity. Be free. Express yourself. Just so long as you don’t say that here.

Turns out that outside of Pakistan and a few other places, the most monolithic, fire-breathing strains of Islam are to be found in the United States, where 80 percent of the mosques are products of Saudi Wahhabism, and in the United Kingdom. Sadly, according to Nonie, many, many moderate Muslim immigrants end up becoming radicalized right here in America.

We have a prediction, one that may seem counterintuitive, but a compelling one nonetheless. Some things that people consider repugnant now may become increasingly attractive as our moral fabric as a people continues further to unravel and living conditions in Western democracies become more and more anarchic. Absolutists on free speech, for example, pushing the envelope past even the line of national security—and finding no pushback. Criminality and corruption increasingly out of control. Things that just can’t go on indefinitely.

Yes, we’re talking about Islam and Sharia law. Not so unthinkable, if you think about it. There’s a good deal of resistance-fatigue building on our side, with no end in sight on the other. Eventually, the attractions of a system that promises justice and law and order could become quite enticing. Many women may find a system of enforced virtue—and the security it affords—most attractive. You might be surprised. The day may come when giving in to the unending jihad may seem almost a relief.

Think about it. Our bet is that it’s quite likely to happen if we can’t get our own act together.

Regime change Syria

Enough is enough

Syria must be stopped. Forget Hezbollah. Aim for the head of the snake, or forget Lebanon.

Lebanon used to be 50-60 percent Christian and is now about 30 percent, or less, and shrinking fast, what with Islamofascism and assassinations. We should stand shoulder to shoulder with the Israelis and remind Syria that Damascus is a very short drive from Jerusalem, as they found out during the 1973 war when Israel probably could have taken it.

Personally, I don’t think there’s anything to be gained by the kind of jawboning that Bush and Blair are attempting, now in light of the latest assassination. Here’s the shameful death list:


February 2005 Rafik Hariri, former Prime Minister, truck filled with explosives

June 2005 Samir Kassir, a journalist, car bomb

June 2005 George Hawi, anti-Syria politician, car bomb

December 2005 Gebran Tueni, anti-Syria journalist and MP, car bomb

November 2006 Pierre Gemayel, Industry Minister, shot in car

What more do we need to know? Bashir Assad must go.

Table talk

Normally, this might not pass the Roscoe language test. Just bear in mind that the following statement was uttered by a family physician of our acquaintance who, no doubt, was making a simple clinical observation as a medical professional.

The conversation among the six of us had turned to politics and the agony of the election. Yours truly made the observation that these reversals are standard operating procedure during mid-term elections. If people were reacting at the polls with Republican fatigue, just wait until they get a load of the warts and pimples of the incoming Dhimmicrats.

To which Dr. Doug replied, “Warts and pimples? More like anal fissures, if you ask me.”

ASK ROSCOE: What’s a jihab?

Dear Roscoe:

Did you see where a British Airways employee couldn’t work unless she agreed to take off her cross necklace or wear it under her clothes? Yet, other religious types don’t have to wear their turbans or jihabs under their clothing. My only question is: I know what a turban is, but what he heck’s a jihab?

If I had my way, I’d ban all religion, mate.

--E. John

Dear E.:

Shoot, this here’s a jihab. (Click on the stupid Blogger-corrupted thing.) Could you imagine trying to wear something like that under your burqa? Talk about diaper rash. We’re sure there’s no religious discrimination here. Nope. Just sheer practicality, you know.

Unless, of course, you got it confused and they were really talking about a hijab. Now that’s a different story. This here’s a hijab.

Hope this helps clarify things a bit. What you really have to watch out for is them hajids. Or was that jihads? One of those. It’s all so confusing.

ROSCOE'S Mid-Weak Review

Yeah, we’ve been negligent. Post-election depression. Recuperation from brain-reduction surgery. Technical problems posting with Blogger Beta. And now an upper-respiratory thing that’s sapping the little that’s left. . .

But now the news, briefly:

You’ve heard, no doubt, about the 360-degree smoking ban in Belmont, Calif., in San Mateo County. That’s anywhere—in your car, in your home—doesn’t matter. That ought to rile just about everybody—left, right, smoker, non-smoker. And from what we hear, that’s just what’s happening. Our view is this deserves the nomination for 2006 Poster Child for Excessive Government. If the Belmont City Council has that much luxury for micromanagement of people’s lives, we wonder if they’ve applied the same scrutiny to other life issues. Like say, abortion. We hear that’s hazardous to human life, too.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer lady. So, new Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi loses her first major battle: Steny Hoyer beats her candidate, John “White Flag” Murtha, for House Majority Leader. During the dull days of Republican majorities, we kind of forgot just how entertaining the Dhimmicrats could be. We just heard that Murtha had some significant baggage that the mainstream mediocrats weren’t telling us about, as an unindicted co-conspirator from the old Abscam scandal. For that matter, Pelosi—darling of the Labor Left—is the subject of a section in Peter Schweizer’s classic book about liberal hypocrisy, Do As I Say (Not As I Do). Seems her vineyard and other restaurant and hotel interests—yep, non-union.

Name me one mainstream mediocracy outlet that’s covering this: Overseas and alternative media sources are reporting that Iran’s leader, Mahmoud “Mojo” Ahmadinejad, is claiming that the recent hostilities with Hezbollah destroyed half of Israel. (Wonder how everybody missed that little item.) So, hey, might as well just finish the job, right? Here’s one report:

One day after Likud leader Binyamin Netanyahu warned that the Iranian threat facing Israel was similar to the 1938 looming Nazi danger to European Jewry, the Israeli media reported that an Iranian newspaper had called on Muslims around the world to get ready: A "great war" to destroy the State of Israel was on the way, an October 29 editorial in Kehyan had exulted. Translated by MEMRI, the paper said half of Israel had been taken care of by the Lebanese Hizb'allah last July. "Now only half the path to [Israel's] destruction remains." The war would be waged by "millions" of Jihadists along Israel's extended border with Jordan, along Israel's southern border with Egypt, and on the Golan Heights, where Israel and Syria meet. "That day is not far off." [Jerusalem Newswire & Ynetnews]

Hill, that ain’t no bad dream

Go ahead, Hillary. Make my day.

That national health care thing was such a big winner 13 years ago, here’s my advice: Go for it. (Heh. Heh.) Pedal to the metal, baby.

Between their delirium over winning—ever get the idea that even they were surprised they actually won an election?—and their irresistible attraction to nanny-state public policy, the Dems just can’t seem to help themselves. Like a moth to a flame, there are just some things they can’t resist—like higher taxes, class envy, political correctness and socialized medicine.

At the time—1993—Hillary was in charge of the ill-fated attempt under hubby Bill to marry socialized medicine with free-market economics. This fiasco was euphemistically called “managed competition,” which is about as oxymoronic as flame-retardant charcoal briquettes or café au lait, hold the cream. Only with worse results.

The Associated Press account, for once, put that event in its proper historical perspective: “The failure of that effort helped Republicans win control of both the Senate and House the following year.”

The problem is there are just too many Americans with either the business sense or the common sense to be fooled by this kind of freakonomics. The truth they can’t easily hide is simply this: Wherever health care is turned into a line item in an annual federal budget, it always becomes a rationed commodity. And the rationing inevitably occurs along age lines. When budgets are tight (and when aren’t they?), coronary bypass procedures, for example, become unavailable to people over the age of, say, 67, until the next budget year. Then next year they become unavailable to anyone over the age of 69.

Sorry, sir, the bucks just ran out. And before these people ever get to the top of the waiting list, nature lends a hand by removing a goodly percentage from the list entirely. Too many Americans know this. Sure, there will be a clamoring and a lobbying from the usual suspects. But with the graying of America, I suspect we’re even less inclined to fall for a scheme like Hillary-care than we were 13 years ago.

As a serious issue, it’s a loser. But then, Hillary’s got to make a mark somewhere, if she hopes to be president in ’08. (Actually, in our book Mitt Romney is the guy who’s got the best handle on the health care issue by far.)

“Health care is coming back," Clinton warned, adding, "It may be a bad dream for some."

Yeah, like for the people of your party who hope to get re-elected next time around.

ROSCOE'S Weak-End Review

What’s the biggest mistake we could make?

Besides giving the Defeatocrats control of Congress, it’s this:
WASHINGTON (al Reuters)—Democrats, who won control of the U.S. Congress, said on Sunday they will push for a phased withdrawal of American troops from Iraq to begin in four to six months, but the White House cautioned against fixing timetables.
Especially in combination with this:
WASHINGTON (Roll Call)—Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), in line to become House Speaker in January, is throwing her support to Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.) in the race for Majority Leader, a move that will be an early test of her influence and will weigh heavily on Murtha's contest with Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) for the post.
Again, the only acceptable outcome of the Iraq war is victory. If we pull out prematurely, we are signing our own death warrant. It will be the biggest boost Islamofascist terrorists could hope to get. They will become an even bigger menace, and withdrawal won’t buy them off. They won’t be satisfied until American presence has been removed from every corner of the Middle East—and probably not even then. In their world, they have a problem with the very existence of Christians and Jews.

Trust me: It will not end with Iraq. The scourge of Islamofascism will only gain momentum. We already know the next demand is that we abandon Israel. Are we ready for that? The Defeatocrats, I believe, are. And that’s exactly where we’re heading.

Want to know what America will eventually look like under Defeatocrat leadership? Look at Europe—which is fast becoming Eurabia. It not only could happen here, but it’s virtually assured. We believe you can take that one to the bank.

And the bad news keeps coming

BEIRUT, Lebanon (CNN) -- A constitutional crisis in Lebanon is threatening plans for an international tribunal to try those allegedly involved in the assassination of the country's former Prime Minister. Prime Minister Fouad Siniora indicated Sunday he would formally announce support for the tribunal at a cabinet meeting Monday. But Lebanese President Emile Lahoud said Siniora's government lacks constitutional authority to make decisions because of Saturday's resignation of all five Shiite ministers from a 24-member cabinet.

White House Press Secretary Tony Snow said last week there was mounting evidence that Syria was working with Hezbollah to topple the Lebanese government in order to prevent establishment of the tribunal.

Castro not long for this world?

There are intelligence reports that Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, 80, has a terminal illness, possibly stomach cancer, and is not expected to live more than a year. Before breaking out the hats and horns, however, we need to remember that brother Raoul, who is just as evil, is firmly in charge. Cuba’s police state should be able to transition right through the Fidel demise without missing a beat. And the other bad news is that the Castro clan is known for a history of great longevity.

If you’ve noticed something funny

With this blog, it’s because we switched over to the new Beta version of Blogger, and it appears that they still have some bugs to work out. Which means so do we. Please bear with us as we de-bug.

ROSCOE’S Weak-End Review

Al-Qaeda mystery solved

Remember you heard it here first: The Associated Press didn’t know quite what to make of the latest rabid al Qaeda hyperventilation threatening to blow up the White House. Or at least this part of it:

"We will not rest from our Jihad until we are under the olive trees of Rumieh
and we have blown up the filthiest house—which is called the White House,"
al-Muhajir said. It was not clear what Rumieh was referring to.

But we know exactly what to make of it. Phonetically, it might have sounded like “Rumieh,” but what they meant was “Romiyya”—or, as the civilized world knows it, Rome. This refers to an Islamniac belief, actually dating all the way to Muhammad. To quote from the book of a close friend of Roscoe:

Across the Middle East the Islamic world has been abuzz with a prophecy of
Muhammad that has received scant attention until recently. Based on the
interpretation of a well-known Hadith, a number of Muslim clerics have been
teaching the faithful to expect the imminent fall of Rome to Islam.

There is one little complication: Rome already has a religion. It’s
called Roman Catholicism. The clerics say this fall will not necessarily be by
the sword, but by “preaching and ideology.” The West, they say, is suffering
spiritually from materialism, and western Europeans are ripe for mass

A preacher in Sudan declared, “The Muslims conquered Constantinople,
where Eastern Christianity is situated, and in the future, a mighty king will
arise for the Muslims; through him, Islam will spread and Rome will be

Constantinople—today known as Istanbul—was conquered in the 15th
century by the Ottoman Turks, successors to the Islamic caliphs. Representing an
empire (the Byzantines and the Eastern Church), this was probably the biggest
plum ever snatched from the Christian West. Its fall had been predicted by
Muhammad in the same Hadith. Rome and Constantinople were really twin imperial
capitals—and the second shoe had yet to drop.

The Muslim clerics are absolutely certain that Rome will soon be
theirs. They see the signs, and they have the prophet’s words. Muhammad had said
the city of Heracles (Constantinople) would fall first, then Romiyya (Rome).
There is no question about it. It is written.

[From The Middle East Conflict, Alpha Books, 2003. For more on this Islamic prophecy, see the Middle East Media Research Institute]

U.S. shoots self in hiney

Black Tuesday: As the delirious Bush impeachment team of Pelosi and Reid prepares to drag America into two years of nonstop political games, diversions, nonsense, gridlock, demagoguery, thuggery, posturing, self-flagellation and Frenchification, we pause now for a round-up of election reacts.

Europeans celebrate Bush smackdown

Evidencing the real origin of Bush Delusional Syndrome: Two hundred Socialist members of the European Parliament hailed the election results as “the beginning of the end of a six-year nightmare for the world.”

Swiss cheese: President George W. Bush has been taught a lesson in the United States mid-term elections, according to many Swiss newspaper leader writers on Thursday. They say he is reaping his just reward for his administration's conduct of the war in Iraq. And they are convinced that for the next two years Bush, termed "a cowboy" and even a "lame duck", will now be on the defensive.

And, but of course—France: "There is less White House in America now and a little less America in the world," said Dominique Moisi, special councillor at the French Institute of International Relations.

Elsewhere in the world

Pakistan: An opposition parliamentarian, Hafiz Hussain Ahmed, hoped for more. Mr Bush "deserves a Saddam-like death sentence," he said.

Syria: “President Bush is no longer acceptable worldwide,” said Suleiman Hadad, a lawmaker in Syria, whose autocratic government has been shunned by the U.S.

Iran: Iranian state television said in a commentary that the Republicans suffered losses because of “Bush’s wrong strategy in the Middle East” as well as “finanial corruption in the United States.”

Canada: And if one thing unites Europeans these days, it is opposition to Mr. Bush. A major poll of European citizens taken earlier this year by the Pew Global Attitudes Project, a series of worldwide public opinion surveys, found that only 30 per cent of Britons have any confidence that Mr. Bush will do the right thing in world affairs. That number falls to 25 per cent for Germans, 15 per cent for French citizens and 7 per cent for Spaniards. (Toronto Globe & Mail)

Iraq: "The vote shows the Iraqi and American people are of one mind about withdrawing U.S. troops," said Falah Hassan Shanshal, who leads the parliamentary bloc of radical anti-American Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr. "We hope the Democrats don't forget their campaign promises.”

One ray of sunshine

India: “If the people of the Middle East rejoice at Bush’s humbling and praise America’s system and get inspired by it, George Bush should be happy. So should we be.” (Jaithirth Rao, The Indian Express)

Wednesday, November 08, 2006

The unthinkable

Gone: The Senate—and any hope for confirmation of a Bush Supreme Court nominee who could be the fifth vote to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Gone: Hope for victory in Iraq and peace in the Middle East. What the Defeatocrats refuse to acknowledge is that the only correct formula there is peace through strength.

Gone: Any meaningful legislative initiatives over the next two lame-duck years, all of today’s pro forma happy talk notwithstanding. Welcome to gridlock, vetoes and higher taxes.

Just like that.

Prediction: Our enemies have been emboldened by this massive political defeat. Look for another attack on America like 9/11 very soon.

Tuesday, November 07, 2006


We're in no mood to hear any talk about silver linings--how two years of Nancy Pelosi as Screecher of the House will re-energize our base, etc. While there may be some truth to that, it's more than outweighed by the harm to our national security and our moral integrity to have such people leading our nation.

Case in point: If the Senate, too, is lost, kiss goodbye any further hope of a Supreme Court nominee getting through who could be a fifth vote to overturn Roe v. Wade. And if Roe v. Wade is not overturned, we risk divine judgment and dissolution as a nation. Perhaps we will know the outcome by dawn's early light, after the votes have been handcounted in Montana. . .

Meanwhile, we'd best be about strengthening what remains because if current trends continue, the slim margins by which we're able to protect life, marriage, children and families will be gone.

Case in point: California and Oregon just DEFEATED a parent's right to know if your daughter is about to have an abortion. (While you're still required to sign on the dotted line for her to get her ears pierced.)

Case in point: While a majority of Colorado voters did defeat a ballot initiative to decriminalize possession of small amounts of marijuana for personal use, 40 PERCENT VOTED FOR IT. What do you suppose that split will be a few years from now?

OK, it's after midnight and whenever we find ourselves typing in capital letters about the end of the world as we know it, it's definitely time to get some sleep.

Come quickly, Lord Jesus!

Hang 'em high

Saddam Hussein: To be hanged by the neck until dead.

And so, now the Left is saying the court verdict against the former Iraqi dictator is a Bush-Rove conspiracy to influence the election? What hypocrisy. And the people who put out such lunacy want us to trust them with national security?

Meanwhile, they're the very ones hatching dirty-trick surprises of their own in named attempts to influence the same election:

o The Mark Foley congressional page scandal--known for many moons, but revealed in October to cause maximum damage to Republicans.

o The State of Denial book by Carl Woodward, whose pubication was timed to cause maximumn damage.

o The Temptating Faith book by David Kuo, in which the author advocates Christians "fasting" from politics this election season. When Laura Ingraham charged him with timing the publication to dampen the evangelical vote, Kuo admitted on the air that the book had originally been schedule for publication in January, but his publisher moved it up to October for "timeliness."

o And now the gay sex-amphetamine scandal of evangelical leader Ted Haggard. Again, this story has been in the works for months, but the Denver media and gay prostitute Mike Jones timed its release to cause maximum damage. Jones admitted as much in news interviews, saying he wanted to expose this hypocrisy as Colorado voters were going to the polls to vote on gay marriage.

Hypocrisy? Compared with these rascals, Christians, conservatives and Republicans are rank amateurs. We're willing to predict a backlash at the polls over this garbage. Just one more example that evil always over-reaches.

November surprise

Roscoe hears that the forces of darkness are about to unleash a November surprise in yet another attempt to dishearten people of faith. This will involve the downfall of a major Christian leader in a most shocking manner. The news media have known about it for months, but apparently have been waiting for the opportune time to break it when it will cause maximum damage. You know, like at election time. . .

America, surrender (and vote Democrat)

Here’s yet another incredible story—one that everyone should read: Islamic terrorism leaders interviewed by WorldNetDaily have some advice for Americans:

1. Withdraw from Iraq.
2. Abandon Israel.
3. Vote Democrat.

Apparently after listening to pols like Nancy Pelosi, they have become convinced that Americans are soft, stupid and easily fooled. Come to think of it, on that basis it wouldn’t be an entirely unreasonable conclusion. One excerpt from the piece:

Many Democratic politicians and some from the Republican Party have stated a withdrawal from Iraq would end the insurgency there.

In a recent interview with CBS's "60 Minutes," House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, stated, "The jihadists (are) in Iraq. But that doesn't mean we stay there. They'll stay there as long as we're there."

Pelosi would become House speaker if the Democrats win the majority of seats in next week's elections.

WND read Pelosi's remarks to the terror leaders, who unanimously rejected her contention an American withdrawal would end the insurgency.
Islamic Jihad's Saadi, laughing, stated, "There is no chance that the resistance will stop."

He said an American withdrawal from Iraq would "prove the resistance is the most important tool and that this tool works. The victory of the Iraqi revolution will mark an important step in the history of the region and in the attitude regarding the United States."

Jihad Jaara said an American withdrawal would "mark the beginning of the collapse of this tyrant empire (America)."

We have some advice for good Americans, too: Read the whole story—and see that it gets some circulation. Everybody--on both sides of the aisle--needs to know the implications of this kind of political stupidity. I, for one, refuse to participate in the cutting of my own throat.

JOHN KERRY: Lest we forget

So, you think it's all been said about John Kerry's shameful remarks? Say it anyway. Say it over and over again till election day.

After all the October surprises and dirty tricks the Defeatocrats have been cooking up for weeks now and all the messages their accomplices in the mainstream mediocracy have been cranking out to discourage conservatives from turning out to vote, they deserve this. Boy, do they ever.

Talk about a silver platter. What could possibly illustrate the differences between the parties--and what's at stake in wartime--better than this revealing Kerry gaffe? And do you think the voters get this? Oh, yeah. Just listen to the buzz. This should have some kind of traction for a good while.

We close with this devastating commentary from Mark Steyn, thanks to Michelle Malkin:

If you talk to Democrats of the middle-class and upper-middle-class and (in John Heinz Kerry’s case) the neo-Gulf-emir-class, you’ll have heard the same thing a thousand times: these poor fellows in Iraq, they’re only there because they’re too poverty-stricken and ill-educated so they couldn’t become Senators and New York Times reporters and tenured Queer Studies professors like normal Americans do. That is, in fact, what they mean by the claim that they “support our troops”: they want to bring them home and retrain them so they’re not forced into taking jobs as Bush’s torturers and thugs. It’s part of the same condescension as describing soldiers as “our children”. If a 22-year old intern wants to drop to the Oval Office broadloom, she’s a grown woman exercising her freedom of choice. But, if a 28-year old guy wants to serve in Iraq, he’s a poor wee misguided Grade Six drop-out who doesn’t know any better. John Kerry’s soundbite is interesting not because it’s the umpteenth self-inflicted wound by Mister Nuance but because it gets right to the heart of the Democrats’ “support” for the troops.

Oh, ouch!
