What The Democrats Are Missing: From a Democrat

Posted by Mark on April 19, 2005

I’ve not read anything this deep in a long time. Mike Gecan nails the problem for the Democrat Party, and the Left in general. While I disagree with his conclusions, his explanation of the problem is well worth reading. Here’s hoping the Democrats just blow right by this peice. If they take it to heart, the Republican Party is in trouble in ’06 and ’08.

Of course, that’s assuming the Republicans don’t shoot themselves in the foot between now and then. Sigh.

Habemus Papam!…

Posted by zaphriel on April 19, 2005

“Dear brothers and sisters, after the great Pope John Paul II, the cardinals have elected me – a simple, humble worker in the vineyard of the Lord,”
Pope Benedict XVI


Long may he live in service to the Lord.
Z.

Update: If you are interested in a more complete biography, The New Oklahoma Democrat has a good write-up.

In Memoriam: The Oklahoma Bombing

Posted by Mark on April 19, 2005

 
I can think of no better way to honor the memory of those who died in The Murrah Federal Building than to recommend this book by Jayna Davis.  In detail, with the kind of supporting evidence that would stand up in a court of law, she presents the case that there was far more to the Oklahoma bombing than McVeigh and Nichols.  She presents witnesses, sworn affadavits, and names John Doe 2 specifically.  She also explains the sad story of government incompetence and coverup that followed the bombing.
 
If you know me, or have read Liberty for any length of time, you know I don’t do conspiracy theories. I take great pleasure in shooting down folks who can’t support their arguments with verifiable facts.  I’ve tried very hard to shoot down Jayna Davis. Not only because she indicts the Clinton Administration, but because she also reports that the cover-up has continued through the Bush Administration, right up to and past 9/11.   I’ve been unable to find any flaws in her case. Her arguments are compelling, relentless, and backed by reams of sworn testimony ignored by Federal Investigators. She managed to convince David Shippers, who is no easy sell. And she’s convinced me. Hopefully, if her book convinces enough people, the Government will have to take notice.
 
Jayna’s website is here. I’d appreciate it if you’d buy the book through my link, if possible. But any way you can read it, please do. Then pass it on.

Dancing to Strauss: A Leftist Canard

Posted by Mark on April 19, 2005

Joe over at The New Oklahoma Democrat threw me a curve today. I’ve been reading conservative material for a long time, and never came across the name of Leo Strauss. Yet, according to Joe, Professor Strauss is the “Father of the Neo-Cons.” This link helps put the argument in some perspective. Here’s another great link on the same topic from The Politic.
So, what happens when you do a Google search with the words Wolfowitz and Strauss?

This.

Now I’m no rocket scientist, just a guy from a little town in Oklahoma transplanted to the frozen north of Chicago, but it sure looks like much of the alleged Straussian influence comes from lefty sites, or sites repeating the same stuff. I’m open to being wrong here, and really am not sure I care. But I’ve spent some time on this , so thought I’d share what I found. I’m expecting Joe to correct me on the above. If so, I’ll prominently post how wrong I am.

By the way, hop over to Joe’s site for a view on politics completely different from my own. It’s a great site, and well worth bookmarking.
