    (The following article by David Horowitz first appeared in our March 24, 2004, issue. An updated version appeared last September 11. It has been further updated to reflect information that has come to light since then. With tonight's premiere of the ABC-TV movie "The Path to 9/11," the truth impact of the Left's policies in bringing about the nation's worst terrorist attack is finally coming to light. -- The Editors) * "While the nation was having a good laugh at the expense of Florida's hanging chads and butterfly ballots, Mohammed Atta and Marwan al Shehhi were there, in Florida, learning...
  • Kerry: Bush uses 9/11 as ‘political pawn’

    Sen. John F. Kerry yesterday blasted the Bush administration for war and homeland security policies that he said leave Americans more vulnerable to attack. Kerry’s remarks came in a Faneuil Hall speech on the eve of tomorrow’s five-year anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. In his fourth speech this year at the venue, Kerry accused the administration of using the tragedy that killed about 3,000 Americans to justify the war in Iraq. “It is immoral to treat 9/11 as a political pawn (to) excuse the invasion of Iraq,” Kerry said. “They were attacked and killed not by Saddam...
  • What the Left Never Will Understand About the War on Terror

    The first thing liberals fail to understand is that war is a serious business. If you are not prepared to take a side, you had better not stand in the middle of the battle field. Sit it out and remain silent, because the minute you speak, you have taken a side, whether you meant to or not, and if you speak against your own, you have chosen the wrong side. This error in judgment among liberals has earned them the current title of un-American or even Al Qaeda sympathizer.
  • Today's Democratic Party Intellectually and Morally Bankrupt

    09/07/2006 4:53:10 PM PDT · by restornu · 12 replies · 707+ views ^ | Sept 6 2006 | David Limbaugh
    Dear Readers: I have a new book coming out, and I think it's probably the most important book I've written so far. It's titled "Bankrupt: The Intellectual and Moral Bankruptcy of Today's Democratic Party." And here's why I think it's so important – and why it must be read before the upcoming elections. The sad fact is that the oldest continuous political party in the world is bankrupt. While the Republican Party is far from perfect and could do much better on immigration, domestic spending, and other issues, it does stand for principles beyond winning. It is the only party...

    National Review On Line ^ | 09-06-06 | Rich Lowry
    All things considered, Democrats would rather be talking about the economy; they think it is favorable ground for them. Yet Democrats are often undone by talking about the economy — more precisely, by how they talk about the economy. That is the argument of a persuasive paper by Anne Kim and Jim Kessler for the moderate Democrat outfit Third Way. They note that, for a self-styled “party of the middle class,” the Democrats don’t win many middle-class voters. Democrats tell themselves bedtime stories about why this is so, including the thesis advanced by Thomas Frank, author of What’s Wrong With...
  • CNN's Candy Crowley blasts Murtha, Dems for having no plans after Bush speech

    Appearing after Burkha Murtha's comments to the President's WOT speech this afternoon, CNN Political Analyst Candy Crowley was surprisingly sharp in her fair and balanced analysis of the Democratic response to the speech. When asked by bathroom queen Kyra Phillips for her opinion on the speech and the Dem response, eye Candy said the Dems continue to have the problem of not having any credible response, nor a plan to fight terrorism. She repeated some of Burkha's angry comments, and said it showed that apart from angry rhetoric denouncing the President, the Dems have nothing to offer.

Citing the escalating violence in the five weeks since the leaders' July 30 letter to the President, the letter calls for a new direction in Iraq to include the beginning of a phased redeployment of U.S. troops before the end of 2006. In addition to again urging the President...

    The American Thinker ^ | September 1, 2006 | James Lewis
    The Republicans are hardly the last word in human wisdom, but right now they are the only ones acting normal. Sure, Democrats think they are making sense, but that’s only when they talk to each other. There aren’t enough grey-beard loons in the country to win national elections. What the Dems don’t get is that they have flagrantly and repeatedly crossed a clear red line in American politics: The line between being for our country or against it. Forget the word “patriotism.” The question is, do Democrats favor a strong and vigorous America that protects itself—- and the entire West—-...
  • Pointless Criticism Does Nothing for National Security

    09/04/2006 8:34:47 AM PDT · by InvisibleChurch · 1 replies · 201+ views ^ | September 04, 2006
    Coleen Rowley has penned a piece over at the Huffington Post entitled “Demagoguery won’t keep us safe.” It is “classic” in terms of characterizing the Anti-war, Liberal, and Democratic stance in the war on terror. Firstly, while it is extremely critical of the current policies that are in use in the war on terror, it fails to offer a single alternative course of action. Anyone can be a critic, but to be a constructive critic requires that at a minimum, a plan to replace that which is in use. Secondly, the accusation that the effort that is in place is...

  • Howard Dean is Destroying the Democratic Party

    Howard Dean is Destroying the Democratic Party Which is in theory a good thing, but can make for a very unbalanced American political system over the next 20 years as non-GOPers grope for a new Party to challenge the GOP for power. The latest indicator of the Dean-led Democratic melt down comes from Robert Novak (4th item): Lifetime Democratic contributors have made good on their threat to stop giving money to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) so long as Howard Dean is its chairman. Some of the party's longtime money men warned that would happen when Dean took over the...

    What part of the war on terrorism do they support? Ann Coulter posted: August 23, 2006 6:23 p.m. Eastern © 2006 This year's Democratic plan for the future is another inane sound bite designed to trick American voters into trusting them with national security. To wit, they're claiming there is no connection between the war on terror and the war in Iraq, and while they're all for the war against terror – absolutely in favor of that war – they are adamantly opposed to the Iraq war. You know, the war where the U.S. military is killing thousands upon thousands...

    One of the most poignant moments in the presidential debates prior to the 2004 election occurred when Sen. John Kerry was pontificating about how he would halt the outsourcing of American jobs overseas. After outlining his approach—which predominantly consisted of giving incentives to American businesses to refrain from such nefarious behavior—Kerry was stopped cold by moderator Charles Gibson. To his everlasting credit, Gibson asked how Kerry could reasonably expect this to be effective when any incentives that could be offered would still pale by comparison to the amount companies would save by paying so much less per worker abroad than...

    University of Chicago Law Professor Cass Sunstein calls them as he sees them, as was obvious from his analyisis of the NSA's authority to conduct warrantless surveillance of Al Qaeda contactings its U.S. operatives.Now Professor Sunstein has written a telling little essay for The New Republic, which that magazine's headline writer has misrepresented with the title "Mortal Combat: By Stoking Fear, Republicans Gain An Edge Over Democrats." The essay says almost nothing about Republicans "stoking fear," although it includes the line "So Karl Rove knows exactly what he is doing."Rather, Professor Sunstein delivers some hard news for Democrats:  When Americans are...

    Since the 2006 elections are fast approaching and the war is the most important national issue, wouldn't it be helpful to prepare a simple flow chart to compare the Bush administration's policy on the war with that of his Democratic critics? One would think such an exercise would be unnecessary, since everyone knows what each side is advocating. But as ridiculous as it seems, no one has yet to flush out the Democrats on their position and the consequences flowing from it. They continue to hide behind their naked criticisms of President Bush and his policies, offering no intelligible alternative...

    WASHINGTON, Aug. 21 — President Bush seized today on Democratic calls for withdrawal from Iraq to make an election-year case that his political rivals did not properly understand the threats to the nation and would create a more dangerous world. It was the most direct attack Mr. Bush has made yet against the Democrats from a White House lectern this election year, and it effectively marked the beginning of a more outright political season for the president and his aides as they work to help Republicans maintain control of Congress this fall. The appearance marked an early, pre-Labor Day start...

    Sen. Joe Lieberman's upset loss to anti-war challenger Ned Lamont in Connecticut's primary confirms the rebirth and takeover by the Democratic Party's left wing that in the Vietnam era drove the party into the wilderness. Following the 1968 Democratic convention blow-out in Chicago and the resounding election defeat of the liberals, the party was marginalized for most of the next 24 years. Republicans appealed to the "silent majority," attracting independents as well as blue-collar and conservative Democrats who crossed the line in voting booths across America. More recently, the GOP strategy has been driven by the religious right aimed mainly...

    IN the 1960s, my sister was part of the Free Speech Movement at Berkeley. She was arrested in a civil rights sit-in. Naturally, she was a lifelong Democrat. Today, she is a “9-11 Republican.” She is not alone. My sister is no less committed to civil rights than before. But she believes that not being murdered by Islamist terrorists is also an important civil right. She is not sure that the Democratic Party completely agrees with her. For 9-11 Republicans, this is the most significant political issue. The GOP “gets it,” while the Democratic Party doesn't. Many recent former Democrats...

    The Democratic National Committee (DNC) has recommended that Nevada and South Carolina join Iowa and New Hampshire in holding presidential nominating contests in January 2008. This ill-conceived recommendation demonstrates that the Democratic Party has not yet learned the painful lessons of 2004. Early in the 2004 presidential election cycle, Democrats in Michigan and the District of Columbia challenged the first-in-the-nation status of Iowa and New Hampshire, arguing that those two unrepresentative states had undue power in choosing the party’s presidential nominee. Both threatened to move their contests to January, in violation of national party rules. Michigan and D.C. backed off...
