Alternative Histories: Blogging: April 1944

Posted by Mark on October 30, 2004

A Post just in from somewhere in the Multiverse:

Everyone knows we aren’t really winnng these wars with Germany and Japan. Oh, we’ve made some gains against the Axis of evil, but it’s been 3 years, and we STILL haven’t caught the bad guys who did this to us. Hitler is still sending out his propaganda, and he isn’t even the one who REALLY attacked us, after all. The links between Germany and Japan have been exaggerated by this administation, to say the least. And why are we attacking Italy? Mussolini doesn’t even have an army to speak of, and has never been a direct an imminent threat to this country. This President’s stubborness and misjudgement in going after Germany and Italy rather than the REAL enemy, Tojo and Japan, have led us to this quagmire. And, Roosevelt obviously has no real plan for peace. Eveyone know that. It’s obvious he’s seeking to make this some kind of World War in order to make good his cousin Teddy’s failed legacy. Everyone know that.

And look at our losses. Thousands of sons and fathers dead. And for what? We are still bottled up in England, for God’s sake. And the British, and that incompetent drunk Churchill appear to be our only real allies. Oh, some small countries have joined us, due to our coercion and bribery, but the bulk of the money and the dying are coming from the United States. Everyone knows that.

That’s why Roosevelt really should not be reelected. The man really is incompetent. We won’t even get in to his abysmal jobs record, or the burgeoning Federal Deficit. My God, we were attacked at Pearl Harbor 3 years ago! And, he was allying with Stalin, after all. Certainly he can’t be trusted to bring the war to a decent conclusion after allying with a known war criminal. And that new running mate of his! What’s his name, Truman? Good Lord. What does that say about Roosevelt’s judgement.

And our candidate knows how to win a war, having spent 4 months in the trenches in Belgium. Eveyone KNOWS those Trench Soldiers for Truth are all lying. Even after our candidate clarified that he did not spend Christmas with the Kaiser in 1917, but was CLOSE to Germany. Even then these 160 men won’t leave him alone.

Support our Troops. And remember what our Candidate has said in battleground states from Wisconsin to Iowa to his home state of Massachussetts, Help IS on The Way. Any One But Roosevelt in ’44.

The universes connect in odd ways, don’t they?

Hugh Hewitt Gone From the Chicago Market?

Posted by Mark on October 30, 2004

Very sad news for the Chicago radio market. Hugh Hewitt apparently will no longer be on. He has continued to be a major conservative voice, and the most reliable and ardent proponent of blogging in the media today. He was instrumental in breaking the Dan Rather story, and has continued to be a main source for opinion during the campaign season. Hopefully some station will realize the ratings value of having such a great conservative voice, and Hugh will once again fill the Chicago airwaves soon

An Update:

Just recieved an email from Hugh. He will be on WIND 560 from 8 to 11 pm in the Chicago Market That’s great news! .

Well, At Least Someone Has Absorbed the Democratic Talking Points

Posted by Mark on October 30, 2004

The Powerline Boys reinforce my first impressions of UBL’s rant:

He [Bush] adopted despotism and the crushing of freedoms from Arab rulers and called it the Patriot Act under the guise of combating terrorism. . . .

It’s Ashcroft’s fault. Where do you suppose he got that?

It never occurred to us that the commander in chief of the American forces would leave 50,000 citizens in the two towers to face those horrors alone at a time when they most needed him because he thought listening to a child discussing her goat and its ramming was more important than the planes and their ramming of the skyscrapers. This gave us three times the time needed to carry out the operations, thanks be to God. . . .

This is, of course, pure Michael Moore. Obviously bin Laden has seen Fahrenheit 9/11, or at least heard about it from other terrorists who have seen it. Just as obviously, they approve of Moore’s movie.

Do you suppose there are any Democrats honest enough to be embarrassed that Osama bin Laden has enthusiastically adopted their campaign themes?

Maybe the Bumper Sticker is right:
Ten out of Ten Terrorists Agree: Anyone But Bush.

It really is a September 11th world. UBL said alot of interesting things in this rant. One was this:

We didn't find difficulty dealing with Bush and his administration due to the similarity of his regime and the regims in our countries. Whish half of them are ruled by military and the other half by sons of kings and presidents and our experience with them is long. Both parties are arrogant and stubborn and the greediness and taking money without right and that similarity appeared during the visits of Bush to the region while people from our side were impressed by the US and hoped that these visits would influence our countries. Here he is being influenced by these regimes, Royal and military. And was feeling jealous they were staying for decades in power stealing the nations finances without anybody overseeing them. So he transferred the oppression of freedom and tyranny to his son and they call it the Patriot Law to fight terrorism. He was bright in putting his sons as governors in states and he didn't forget to transfer his experience from the rulers of our region to Florida to falsify elections to benefit from it in critical times.

The media is spouting the idea that the Bush administration UBL is talking about is W. But read the whole quote above. He’s talking about Bush 41. This is a nuanced (to use a Kerry term) reference to Iraq and Desert Storm. The only difference between Usama’s statement and a Michael Moore rant is that Usama has a longer term and better grasp on historical context. At least Usama knows there is and was a connection between himself and Iraq.

This is indeed a time to keep the radio on. Usama doesn’t make these tapes in vain. They’ve always been a harbinger of an attack. So it is now. With the weakness of Spain as the template, Usama’s plan has always been to influence the US election. And he intends to influence them in the same way he did before. All that’s missing is a Kerry/Edwards bumper sticker on his cave wall.

The question has always been:

Are you voting with the terrorists, or emphatically against them?

This has been, and remains, the only issue of the most important election since 1864.

America chose correctly then.

I pray we are courageous enough to choose correctly now.

Space Exploration: Who Will Take the Lead

Posted by Mark on October 29, 2004

Yet one more reason to vote for the President this Tuesday:

John Kerry’s sensibility is mostly against the human exploration of the solar system. His votes on space exploration have been, almost consistently, negative. His hostility towards the space shuttle and the International Space Station are just one indicator of how he feels about the whole idea of human exploration and colonization of the solar system. His record on space issues tracks closely with that of the senior Senator from Massachusetts, Ted Kennedy, who may be America’s single most anti-space politician since Bill Proxmire.

This article continues with a detailed look at the President’s record on Space Exploration over the past 4 years. Unlike many presidents, including his own father, Bush’s promises regarding the Moon and Mars have quietly been taking shape in realistic ways.

On the other hand, Kerry’s record once again betrays him.
