Palin in Blaine, MN

During a campaign stop in Blaine, Minn., on Friday, Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin lamented that neither she nor Hillary Clinton would be able to attend next week’s anti-Iran rally in New York City and vowed that she and GOP presidential hopeful John McCain “will not waver in our commitment” to prevent Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad from obtaining nuclear weapons and potentially starting “a second Holocaust.”

I just made it through 8 years of the Texas idiot rule, and there is no way I can be afraid of Ahmadinejad. Ahmadinejad is much more intelligent then Bush.
Bush was actually terrorizing the whole globe.
If you measured the two men by their degrees of sanity, Bush would be kept in a cage.
As for Sarah, she is simply a fanatical evangelical who has no business anywhere near the “button”. The button would mean a shortcut to the RAPTURE, to Sarah.

Paolo, okay, okay. Maybe you are right! Maybe I believe you.  How many do you want to believe you?  WIll one do?  Well, I believe what I’ve read, heard, and seen.  And still you seem right!  So what is the next thing to do?  Screaming won’t help. Next thing is to say exactly how both political parties are making it up over Iran and nuclear weapons.  Where are they getting their information?  Give us some facts! Citations, proof! You know the drill.

I have lost count of the number times I have had to write the following, both on this web site and many others.

Sarah Palin and John McCain (and, to be fair, Barack Obama and Joe Biden as well) make soaring statements about how “we” must prevent Iran from “acquiring nuclear weapons.”

None of these moral midgets can show me any evidence whatsoever that Iran even has such a program!

Iran has allowed thorough inspections of its nuclear power facilities by the IAEA under Mohammed Al-Baradei. Those inspections have turned up NO EVIDENCE WHATSOEVER of any nuclear weapons program.

In other words, the two major parties are making stuff up as they go. Folks, do you still doubt that we’re dealing with two wings of the same party? It’s called the War Party.

Iran, as a signatory to the NPT, is GUARANTEED the right to enrich its own uranium for use in power production. Israel, as others have pointed out, refuses to sign on to the NPT, for obvious reasons: they have actually built scores of nuclear weapons.

Iran’s leadership has consistently condemned the acquisition of nuclear weapons as contrary to their religion.

Regarding the allegation that Iran wants a “second Holocaust,” Jews are guaranteed the right to practice their religion in Iran, and are given a seat in Iran’s parliament despite their small percentage of the population.

Iran has not attacked another nation in hundreds of years. How many nations has America attacked in that period of time?

It seems they’re attempting to “slip us” a MIC-ky.  Damn that MIC, and whose side is Ahmadinejad on…?  He certainly APPEARS to be on the side of our MIC.  Maybe, they “slipped him” a few big ones.

Sure, Palin is great at acting tough, but here is one little pesky thing she is not thinking of.  We just bailed out Wall Street to the tune of $700 billion dollars which can reach as high as $1 trillion dollars.  We have spent conservatively $500 billion on the war in Iraq and we have a budget deficit of over $400 billion dollars.  We also have a national deficit of $9.6 trillion dollars and a trade deficit of $6.5 trillion dollars.  Gov. Palin we are flat broke and we have the right to know where any further funding for yet another war will come from.  Also, do not forget, Gov. Palin, you are not opposed to going to war with Russia.

You can act tough, but as always, it is we the people who fund these wars and bailouts.

Pro-Israel PACs Swett It Out in New Hampshire
By Janet McMahon

“As part of their continuing campaign to keep John Sununu out of the U.S. Senate—an effort which failed in 2002, when then-Representative Sununu (R-NH) was first elected to “the world’s greatest deliberative body”—pro-Israel PACs bestowed a whopping $44,000 on would-be Democratic opponent Katrina Swett in 2007. In case that name doesn’t ring a bell, Swett is the daughter of the late Rep. Tom Lantos (D-CA), who was one of Israel’s most ardent champions in the House. Her husband is former Rep. Dick Swett (D-NH), who, after two terms in the House and an unsuccessful Senate bid, managed to amass a respectable $95,500 in pro-Israel PAC contributions. Will Sununu’s Democratic opponent, former Gov. Jeanne Shaheen, who received $72,022 in pro-Israel PAC contributions to oppose Sununu in 2002, find it in herself to rise above the spurn?

So eileen and robert, what do you want to do with all the rich Jews in America?  You don’t think for a minute or even a nanosecond they are going to go away, do you?  Agreed that Israel needs to be as responsive to IREA inspections. Why are they exempt?  The public has a right to know.  Why?  Because our tax dollars, even if a lot is paid by rich Jews, are going towards helping Israel.  Even if Israel needs help against the huge Arab coalition aided by Russia and China.  I have been hearing about the strong arm tactics of AIPAC for months and months on these forums but only such cliches as the root of all evil is the love of money are offered.  It is so nice to be made aware of the stinking pig world, but what are we to do with the swine?  All the swine?  And Jews don’t even like hogs.  I know I know I cast aspersions on poor pigs and piglets (they are sort of like stars and starlets).  How do you propose to make the guvamint enforce the laws, i.e., the Logan Act?  With all the TD forums I have collected, I have a book on AIPAC and Islamophobia.  So we have both, Israelophobia and Islamophobia.  An interesting state of affairs.  But if I may, discretely, point out that both regions are religion based.  Isn’t that even more interesting?  Where are their respective gods in this business?  As Tom Waits plaintively sings, “God’s Away on Business.”  Yahweh, Allah, where are youuuuu?  Youuuu whooo!  Maybe the Gods are Out To Lunch?  They are to this non-militant atheist. 

The pig poet offers this:
  “You’ll never change a pig into a sheep
  unless it had a sheep for a muhtha.”

Robert has inspired me to offer this excerpt from WAWA Blog July 7, 2008:

Patriot Follows the Money and Exposes Foreign Agents

Grant F. Smith, Director for the Institute of Research Middle East Policy publication, “Foreign Agents: The American Israel Public Affairs Committee from the 1963 Fulbright Hearings to the 2005 Espionage Scandal” exposes how US Middle East policy has been formulated and thrives due to the dearth of relevant reporting on AIPAC’s activities. This book should be read by every American tax payer, Congress and foreign policy maker.

It begins with Senator Fulbright’s on target questions to Jewish-Agency-funded US foreign agents who did not register with the Justice Department or disclose their true financing, funding flows and covert activities and illuminates how AIPAC: the American Israel Public Affairs Committee operates “within a murky nexus regulated by four important but seldom enforced US laws.” [1]


The lax enforcement of The Logan Act, The Foreign Agents Registration Act/FARA, the 1917 Espionage Act, Thompson Memorandum guidelines for prosecuting corporate crime coupled with the fear of being labeled anti-Semitic and a media who have failed at their commission to seek and report the truth have all colluded to exert an undue influence over Congress and thus; we the people of America to be “under the de facto influence of a powerful foreign interest.” [2]


Smith documents how AIPAC-a constellation of individuals and organizations that make up the “Israel lobby” continue to actively steer USA foreign policy in a militant and pro-Israel only direction.

Senator Fulbright’s concerns over activities of unregistered foreign agents who worked to influence public opinion and policy resulted in the 1963 Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearings to investigate the Jewish Agency and uncovered the “conduit” operation run by the American Zionist Council. In 1959, The American Zionist Council was renamed AIPAC.

Within eight years, the Council received over a half a million “from the Jewish Agency to create a favorable opinion in this country for Israeli government policies. The Senate investigation closed down the conduit, but the extensive propaganda activities still go on…[and] by 1998, “US aid to Israel exceeded $3 billion a year, the highest amount of US aid given to any country.” [3]

“AIPAC’s illegal tactics harm America…[and] corporate crime inflicts far more damage on society than all street crime combined…Harvard economist Thomas Stauffer estimated the total cost of [the] prolonged conflict in the Middle East at $3 trillion [in 2002 USA dollars and he] lays a good deal of the blame for this at the doorstep of AIPAC.” [4]


...It has been said that the root of all evil is the love of money, and most nefarious are the consequences of nearly two-trillion American dollars which have reaped “special trade advantages, and preferential contracts. U.S. aid to Israel cost some 275,000 American jobs each year…Additional known items include loan guarantees-which the U.S. most probably will be forced to cover-special contracts for Israeli firms, legal and illegal transfers of marketable U.S. military technology, de facto exemption from U.S. trade protection provisions, and discounted sales or free transfers of U.S. military equipment…net purchases by U.S. parties of Israel Bonds, adds at least $40 billion to the total…U.S. jobs and exports have been affected, adding to costs and losses…As U.S. relations with Mid East countries deteriorated, trade was lost. Worsening political relations resulted in the loss of hundreds of thousands of U.S. jobs…thanks to the Israel lobby.” [5]

The Rest:

SARAH, SHUT UP!!! STOP STOP STOP. HOW F———STUPID DO YOU THINK JEWS ARE? THIS IS NOT GOING TO GET YOU OR MCCAIN ONE SINGLE VOTE EXCEPT FROM THE HANDFUL—AND IT REALLY IS A LITTLE HANDFUL—OF RIGHTWING JEWS IN THIS COUNTRY. MOST OF US WOULD NOT TOUCH IRAN WITH A 10,000-MILE POLE. Israel has enough problems with its own hawks. Don’t you think that if it were feasible to attack Iranian uranium enrichment and other installations without killing zillions of civilians Israel would already have done it (as they did with Iraq’s nuclear plant WITHOUT any invasion, one simple airstrike)?

Do you really want America to attack another Middle Eastern country and get into another unwinnable war by any standard? Ahmadinejad says a lot of things, and a lot of it is garbled in the translation. Even if he meant what you think he said, even if he is willing to martyr himself and most of the Iranian people in a nuclear exchange, HE IS NOT IN CONTROL. The mullahs are in control. They may hate Israel but they are NOT self-destructive. They may not care about their human rights pr, they may torture and kill Canadian ladies photographing their prisons and all the rest of it, but they are NOT suicidal.

If it’s Israel you are concerned about, you may have noticed that Iran’s Hezbollah is all over Lebanon but have not launched all-out war against Israel, nor has Hamas which Iran also largely funds. If they wanted to overrun and destroy Israel Hezbollah and Hamas could possibly do it but they aren’t trying to. Why do you think that is? Because they worry about Israeli nuclear capability. If they really wanted to destroy Israel with a nuclear weapon Israel would probably retaliate and the mullahs know this, they aren’t stupid. Look: the Pakistanis have nuclear weaponry, Pakistan is the home of some of the most Islamist of the Islamists. Some of their tribal regions shelter Taliban and bin Laden and Zawahiri, remember? If Pakistan wanted to they could use their nuclear weapons against Israel or India, but they don’t, even though the Hindus and Sikhs have, since partition, probably massacred far more Moslems than there are in all the Palestinian refugee camps, and the Moslems have massacred many Hindus and Sikhs.

A word about Iran. Some of my best friends—people I ride horses with, celebrate the solstice with, break bread and recite poetry with—are Iranians, and most of them came to this country when their revolution that overturned the Shah set up the mullahs, whom they detest even more than they did the Shah. Some of them are atheists, some of them are Zoroastrians, a few are Moslem but not very observant. None of them like what is going on in Iran. They worry about their families in Iran.

Iranians are Persian. They were Persian long before Mohammed invented his religion. The Iranian population is not a monolith of Islamists. Some are, there are religious police, but many many more are just average Moslems and a few Christians. There university students are, well, like students everywhere. Most of them do not aspire to join the Revolutionary Guard. I don’t know when or if they will get the mullahs off their backs, but I am morally certain that if the U.S. or Israel attacks Iran, it will do nothing but enrage the population and make those who now sneer at the mullahs reconsider. They are very proud of their Persian heritage and many of them dislike being lumped with Arabs.

Please don’t try to bring democracy to Iran, or act in what you think are Israel’s best interests (and being a Zionist you can be sure I think very carefully about what Israel’s best interests are).  Our country simply cannot endure another round of stupid, destructive, immoral, endless-war policy. We can’t afford it morally or financially or any other way. It’s just wrong. And this posture does not make you look tough—just stupid and evil.

“The oft repeated comment ascribed to President Ahmadinejad, that “Israel must be wiped off the map,” was addressed by Virginia Tilley, Professor of political science who wrote:

“In his October 2005 speech, Mr. Ahmadinejad never used the word “map” or the term “wiped off”. According to Farsi-language experts like Juan Cole and even right-wing services like MEMRI, what he actually said was “this regime that is occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time.”

“In this speech to an annual anti-Zionist conference, Mr. Ahmadinejad was being prophetic, not threatening. He was citing Imam Khomeini, who said this line in the 1980s (a period when Israel was actually selling arms to Iran, so apparently it was not viewed as so ghastly then). Mr. Ahmadinejad had just reminded his audience that the Shah’s regime, the Soviet Union, and Saddam Hussein had all seemed enormously powerful and immovable, yet the first two had vanished almost beyond recall and the third now languished in prison. So, too, the “occupying regime” in Jerusalem would someday be gone. His message was, in essence, “This too shall pass.” http://www.counterpunch.org/tilley08282006.html

Israel is the ONLY Mid East state with WMD’s.

Israel has NOT signed the NPT [Iran has] and has never allowed IAEA inspectors into their underground WMD facility that was exposed by the 56 photos that Mordecahi Vanunu shot in 1985.

Israel has forbidden Vanunu the right to speak to ANY foreigners.

Palin is an absurdity thrown into the political forum to do exactly what middlepath suggests.  This is a country of 305,206,212 people.  Just stop to think for a moment.  Of that number, about 174,800,000 were registered in 2004, that is a little over 55% the voting age population (for verification see http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0781453.html).  There is no doubt there is a larger number for the 2008 election.

What is the significance of this statistic?  Well what percentage of almost 175 million people is thought to be paying attention to election information? 

Then what kind of information is it that sticks in the minds of people, and we will assume that everybody is ordinary here? 

It doesn’t matter one whit who Palin sees in the world.  While she is the current darling of the Republicans, she has no status in the eyes of the world.  Do you really think Ahmadinejad cares what the hell she thinks or says?  It has all been said already by those who matter.  She is just a shrill voice mouthing what her masters tell her to say.  A marionette.

Graphic design companies and advertising agencies make billions of dollars designing ads and campaigns that will capture the attention immediately.  Psychology can say what kinds of information rivets the listener faster and most indelibly.  Politics is a science and you had better believe that. 

Point is that whoever can seduce the mind of the public best will win this election.  It is not about truth nor culture.  It is about mental seduction.  It is about the lure and temptation, what excites the mind.  Biden is lethargic.  His message is true and good, but his delivery is old manish.  He is not thrilling anybody really.  Interest yes, excite no.  Palin is young and female which is very very new in the world of Republican politics.  Meaning a real candidate for the office of.  Hillary was a candidate for the party selection, but was not selected.  So while she was a candidate for President, it no longer counts.  Geraldine Ferraro made it farther, but was not an electrifying force although she was the first woman to be selected to run for Vice President way back in 1984.  McCain and Obama are better voices than the VP candidates.  Obama is not as gripping as he needs to be if he is going to win.  He needs to ratchet up his glamour, his passion.  He may be passionate about his issues but his delivery is almost academically humdrum.  He needs to whip up the crowd every time he is in the public arena.  He needs to whip McCain’s butt verbally.

Since the public is numbed by television and computer speed and glossy instantaneous delivery of messages, advisors to the candidates need to constantly keep that in mind when writing speeches for the candidates.  Obviously Palin’s advisors are doing the better good job of showing off the skirt and the mouth that wears lipstick.

So this ‘End of Days’ Fanatic is pointing her finger at Iran’s Pres, while she and her Church are tidying up for the ‘Rapture’?
‘Alaska will be a Refuge from Armegeddon’?
Although I find Speaking in tongues to be rather biarre behavior- In Psychology I think thye refer to that a ‘Disassociative ’ behavior, and I have to wonder how they can be sure as to Who exactly they think they are Communicating with. Why is it their visiting pastor from Kenya (who demanded God help her ‘Make her Way’) saw it fit to run a woman out of the Kenyan village for ‘Witchcraft’ but does not view ‘tongues’ as Demonic Possession? Perhaps that is the whole Idea behind this babbble and contortions- connecting with the One who hates humanity enough to rejoice in a ‘Holy War’, resulting in mass Destruction and Untold numbers of Deaths throughout the World. What entity would require the help of Mere mortals to pull off this end of Days Scheme..“Could it be Satan?”
Palin has proven she takes her Religion very seriously and relies on it for Political decisions…
What entity would be elated by killing wolves from a plane jus tto get theri Trophy Left leg? What Entity would Revel in the chance to not only destroy a Wildlife Refuge(Anwar) but also find the process useful in increasing Global Warming leading to more Hurricanes, Droughts, Flooding, Animal Extincitons, Increased Damage to our protective Ozone??? What Entity has always been Jealous a ‘man’ and has worked through them do fulfill it’s agenda- because it is NOT Almighty?Hillary scared the hell out of me because of her Parroting Mac’s desire to bomb Iran without provocation ‘Obliterate Iran’ were her exact words- but between Hillary ,Mac and Palin; Sarah takes the Grand Prize for most Deadly- She has HER religious convictions and Servitude reinforcing her sociopathic meglomania.
What amazes me About the entire Oil Drum beat to war with Iran..Is they have no Nukes at this time, Yet we are supposed to see Israel (about 200 Nuke War heads) as the underdog in this Rhetoical Fight..‘Sticks and Stones’.
What also baffles me is how Jews NOT living in Israel are ablr to set the Israeli agenda…. Over ahlf those who live EVERYDAY worrying about Bombings in their neighborhoods WANT to Work out a Compromise, a Peaceful settlement. Bu those who live safely in Boca Raton are ready to blow the shit out of anything, as long as they can hit the Sale at Macy’s by Noon!
Seems to me those who feel this Way should return to their ‘homeland’ - If you are going to Pick a Fight (costing poss. millions of lifes) YOU Should be ready to accept the consequences.
And for All Jews who Fall for this ‘Jews For Christ’ or ‘Friends of Israel’ ask them exactly how many Jewish Seats will be available on ‘Judgement Day’- ZERO…Only 144,000 Seats will be available for Jews Who have CONVERTED to this Heretical form of ‘Chrisitanity’
So who are actual Friends of the Jewish Community, or Israel..Those who respect your Religious Doctrines, Who are fighting for a Peaceful Solution and reject rhetoric which puts Isaelites in further Harms way. We are Real Christians who follow the Teaching which promote ‘Turning the other Cheek’ and Love thy Neighbor. It is Muslims who refer back to the Old testiment as part of their encompassing Religoous teachings, who have lived side by side with th eJewish community , when psuedo Christians were Blaming YOU for Christs Cruxifiction. It is the Buddhists who hold to the Credo, to do no harm to any living thing. It is even New Age Religions who not only look back to your ancient doctrines for enlightenment and instruction, but have also been persecuted for their beliefs( Wicca). Palin and her Consorts like Hagee, are DECEIVERS!They are working towards Exterminating All of Us!

P.T.‘s comment: Yes!  WE are the ones with blood on our hands and if McPalin gets in, we’re going to have to bathe in it.

jpw: Sarah does think she is top billing in this campaign. I heard her giving a speech and she stated “the Palin/McCain”, on Countdown with Keith Olberman Thursday night. She has already thrown John out with the trash, he just doesn’t know it yet.

Somebody said, “It’s about time to cash in your 401K, stock up on canned food and shot guns.”

I’ve been raising and canning my own food for some time now and I’m thinking real hard about that shot gun.

This won’t end, I meen the lies, the looting and the killing, untill They(the entitled) have it all.  Until our social and economic structure is so caotic that even They can’t take any more.

You’ll know it has happened when the lights go out, the oil stops flowing, you have to dig into that stash of canned beans and the scoundrels(Them) will have fled the country with their(our) $billions$.

I just hope that we don’t have to resort to that shot gun to defend the stash.  It’s happened in other countries.

Now that’s a little over the top I know and I’m not suggesting that it will happen any time soon, but that’s the dirrection we’re heading and civilization does seem to go through a colapse and renewal every 300 years or so.  We’ve about had our run.

So keep the old skills alive and garden like your life depends on it.

Somebody should tell Ms. Bridge to Nowhere she is hanging around with a guy who sings “Bomb, bomb, bomb, Iran” in public places.  McCain is more inclined to bring on a holocaust than prevent one.  .  . But wait isn’t this what Palin’s pastor in Wasilla also wants to bring on?  Yes, except I think he calls it Armageddon.

Ahmadinejad is willing to say quite extreme things.  As is Governor Palin.  Pretty good match there - lots of media attention to 2 of the lightest-weight leaders gaining broad media attention.

Notice that she says “I will”  Humm, shouldn’t it be (since she is only running as VP on the ticket) “we will”.  Sounds to me that she thinks she is running as the top of the ticket.  Palin for President?  I think that’s more to the point than whatever else you hear her say.  Pay attention, nation - this isn’t the first time she’s made this Freudian slip.

You know, it’s coming to the point where I can hardly stomach watching or hearing Sarah Palin. Really, she makes me sick.

As with G.W.Bush, I don’t know which makes me sicker: That what she has to say is so clueless, arrogant and ignorant; or that this country’s political process could possibly elevate someone this incompent to such a position.

We already have a second Holocaust.  The dead caused by the U.S. war on Iraq may now be over one million.
