“And Now a Word from the Tooth Fairy . . .”
Vol: 45 Issue: 29 Wednesday, June 29, 2005
“The president’s frequent references to the terrorist attacks of September 11 show the weakness of his arguments . . . He is willing to exploit the sacred ground of 9/11, knowing that there is no connection between 9/11 and the war in Iraq.”
With this comment, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi demonstrated to those few remaining who still doubt it, that liberals live in an alternate universe than the rest of us.
Pelosi’s comments are so out of touch with reality that it is almost pointless to rebut them. Any rebuttal seems to me to automatically fit the ‘beer makes you drunk’ variety. (“Pssst! Did you hear? BEER can make you DRUNK!! Who knew?”)
According to Pelosi, (who evidently was unaware of beer’s consequences) the President KNOWS there is no connection between 9/11 and the war in Iraq. (Ummm, what the President KNOWS is what happens when one drinks too much beer. Judging by her comments, Ms. Pelosi does not).
At least, one can hope that the person who now occupies a leadership role in the government’s disloyal opposition was really drunk when she said that. The only alternative explanation is that she thinks her constituency must be.
Allow the appalling stupidity of Pelosi’s ‘rebuttal’ to the President’s speech sink in for a minute. Remember that she is one of the three top Democrats in the Democratic party.
If the Democrats held the majority in the Congress, Nancy Pelosi would be third-in-line in the national line of succession.
If something were to happen to the President, the Vice-President would take over. If something were to happen to both of them, the next in line would be the Speaker of the House. If the Dems held the majority, that would be Nancy Pelosi!
For the sake of argument, let’s take a second to review the main point of the liberal’s ‘rebuttal’.
‘There is no connection between 9/11 and the war in Iraq.’
The attacks on September 11 (I guess that is what Pelosi is referring to by 9/11 and not the police emergency telephone number, but who knows?) were perpetrated by al-Qaeda terrorists dedicated to the destruction of America’s representative republic and its replacement with an Islamic government.
Everybody still with me? Any disagreement so far?
The war AGAINST Iraq ended in April, 2003 with the fall of Saddam’s Ba’athist regime.
On June 28th of last year, the Coalition Provisional Government was replaced with an Iraqi government that was installed in a free election characterized by a voter turnout that made American voter participation in Election 2004 pale by comparison.
The war IN Iraq that our forces are now waging is against Abu Musab al-Zarqawi’s forces. Abu Musab al-Zarqawi is a top al-Qaeda commander who openly admits that he takes his orders from Osama bin-Laden.
al-Zarqawi has allowed his communiques between himself and bin-Laden to be intercepted so as to put any doubts to rest about his affiliation and intent.
For Pelosi and her followers, this is a difficult equation to master, so once again, I will type really, really slow . . . the connection between the war in Iraq and 9/11 is that, in both cases, the combatants, objectives and methods are the same.
On September 11, it was al-Qaeda against America. The war on terror is, from the American perspective, a war between America and al-Qaeda. The combatants in Iraq are Americans and al-Qaeda terrorists.
There is no CONNECTION between an Albanian goat and a Australian platypus.
There is no DIFFERENCE between 9/11 and the war we are now waging in Iraq.
To make it fly, the Democrats are pulling out all the old canards. NJ idiot Jon Corzine appeared on Fox News this morning to bring up ‘no weapons of mass destruction’ and ‘Bush lied’ to support Pelosi’s amazing contention 9/11 isn’t connected to the war against al-Qaeda in Iraq.
The New York Times had already published an editorial decrying the President’s ‘cynical exploitation’ of 9/11 before he had finished giving his speech.
By this morning, most of the headlines in the liberal media were parroting the same mantra.
Therefore, the Democrat’s desperate and transparent effort to portray itself as the party of truth, justice and the American way (as opposed to the lying liars who control all three houses of power) is gaining momentum among the useful idiots who are only too happy to provide propaganda victories to the enemy, provided it will boost their own short-term political prospects.
It boggles the mind. First, it is mind-boggling that an American politician would openly make such a seditious comment as part of a national rebuttal speech while American forces are literally still on the battlefield.
Secondly, that it would resonate throughout the liberal establishment the way that it has is simply stunning.
To hear other, presumably intelligent, well-read and well-educated American politicians repeat the claim puts me in mind of Election 2000, when the mantra of the mind-numbed was ‘every vote should count’ — as they simultaneously fought a pitched court battle to disqualify the ballots of our overseas military forces.
It’s like the Tooth Fairy is writing the Democrats’ speeches, which are evidently then vetted by the Queen of Hearts and March Hare before being delivered by the Mad Hatter.
Have these people no shame at all?
It is true that the 9/11 Commission found no link between Saddam’s Iraq and 9/11, (despite documents proving Uday and Qusai met with Osama in 1998 and promised to provide training facilities, so even that ‘truth’ is suspect).
But that bears zero relevance to the fact that it is the 9/11 terrorists we are fighting in Iraq today.
If, as Osama’s useful idiots like Pelosi contend, we pulled out of Iraq, what would happen then? Where would al-Qaeda go? Would all those foreign fighters in Iraq all buy houses in Baghdad, hang up their jihad suits and go job hunting?
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that the resources being directed against the US military in Iraq would be redirected against the US civilian homeland.
al-Qaeda fighters IN Iraq aren’t fighting FOR Iraq, they are fighting AGAINST Iraq. Their targets, apart from American soldiers, are Iraqi soldiers, politicians, policemen, school children, housewives, garbagemen, school teachers, etc., etc.
American soldiers aren’t IN Iraq fighting AGAINST Iraq, they are fighting FOR Iraq. THEIR targets are the fighters targeting those who are killing those on the list above, not Iraqis or the Iraqi government.
(I’m STILL typing real slow, in the unlikely event a liberal finds himself reading today’s briefing).
And not a word of what I’ve said is in defense of either the Republicans or the White House. (If that’s what you think, stand over there with Pelosi. Here’s your sign.)
It is a defense of America, who is under attack from all sides abroad, and under an even more vicious and deadly attack from within.
By quislings like Nancy Pelosi, Ted Kennedy, Jon Corzine, Dick Durbin and others from any ideology that would so cheerfully sacrifice America’s long-term interests for short-term political gain.
This sounds like a rant. Maybe it is, but it is not intended to be. Neither is it intended to be political, despite the subject matter. It is impossible to separate politics from Bible prophecy and make any sense of the Bible’s outline for last days.
The antichrist is a politician. He comes to power through the political process. His platform is deception on a global scale. To be successful, he will have to have the support of a broad global constituency already conditioned to believe a lie, if properly packaged and repeated often enough.
Throughout my lifetime, one of the prophecy questions that always troubled me was how someone as overtly evil as the antichrist would be able to pull the wool over the eyes of the kindest, most generous, and most sophisticated people the world has ever known, for such is the America I know and love.
But when something as, (dare I say it . . .? Yes, I must, it is the only appropriate adjective available), when something as STUPID as Pelosi’s comment that the war in Iraq is not connected to the war on terror is not immediately recognized for what it is, my question about ‘how’ is answered for me.
The Apostle Paul, writing of the last days, warned of ‘perilous times’ because those “without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God” would eventually gain positions of power to pave the way for the coming deceiver. (2 Timothy 3:3-4)
That certainly helps us get a better sense of “what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.” (2nd Thessalonians 2:6)
The ministry of the Spirit of Truth is removed with the believing Church at the Rapture. And when truth becomes meaningless, those people remaining will stand for nothing and fall for anything. We are almost there.
The anti-American, anti-God worldview of the liberal American Left mirrors that of most of the rest of the world.
It is a ‘perfect storm’ where treason is fashionable, patriotism is the exclusive domain of the ‘religious right’ and outright lies are indistinguishable from abject truth.
Or, as Solomon expressed it in Ecclesiastes 4:5, when “The fool foldeth his hands together, and eateth his own flesh.”
