The Repercussions of Senator’s Frist’s Stance

Posted by Mark on August 4, 2005

Coming out in favor of embryonic stem cell research was not the smartest political move for Bill Frist. This is just the first of many consequences for this potential Presidential candidate.

Stop the ACLU Blogburst -The ACLU, Terror and Nevada

Posted by zaphriel on August 4, 2005

This is the promised part 2 of an interview I conducted with Dale Choate of the Nevada Independant Conservatives PAC. I decided to use it as my blogburst because it had allot to do with his oppinions towards the ACLU. To be fair, NICPAC, as it’s name suggests is a Nevada Centric organization. So now that you know the background, here goes…

Zaphriel: What is your attitude / stance toward the American Civil Liberties Union
(ACLU), both nationally and in Nevada?

Dale: I am also not currently aware of ACLU involvement in Nevada politics on any issue that we are addressing.

None of us at NICPAC are fans of the ACLU. Their defense of NAMBLA and attacks on religious freedoms under the guise of protecting civil liberties is plainly abhorrent. However there are lots of issues that NICPAC is working to address and we don’t have the size and ability right now to take on every issue that we would ideally like to. Right now we are trying to focus on Nevada politics and Nevada issues.

The ACLU’s opposition to the war on terror however does fall in the category of things that affect Nevada as terrorism is as much a threat here as it is anywhere.

The ACLU is an organization that was founded to protect our civil liberties from being infringed upon by the government. This is a noble ideal and it is worthwhile to have an organization devoted to protecting these liberties.

Sadly, the ACLU is an organization that has lost its way.

The ACLU no longer is about protecting the citizen’s civil liberties but is instead about advancing its own political agenda. The cases taken up by the ACLU and the causes they champion have little to do with what they were founded to accomplish.
The uproar that the ACLU is creating over the holding of captured terrorists at Guantanamo Bay clearly reveals this agenda.

The ACLU wants the terrorists to be treated in accordance with the Geneva convention. This is in spite of the fact that the Geneva Convention protocols explicitly state that these terrorists are not covered by the Geneva Convention. They have forfeited this protection by not fighting in uniform and by intentionally targeting civilians, both of which are forbidden.

Similarly the ACLU wants to give Constitutional Rights to the terrorists even though the Constitution makes no mention of rights for foreign nationals captured outside of the U.S.

The ACLU’s intentions here are not born of honorable and idealistic values based on civil liberties. Instead this can only be seen as an attempt to embarrass the Bush administration at any cost. For the ACLU, the ends now justify the means, and that is a sad state of affairs for an organization whose mission was to protect civil liberties.

I can back up Dale here, in my short tenure as the Stop Nevada Chapter Lead Contributor, I have found that the Nevada ACLU is rather inactive and unorganized. Dale here also echos several things that I have talked about over and over again. The ACLU is plainly pro-terror, (or at the very least Anti-anti-terror), and cares more about defaming the evil Bushitler than they are about those they should be concerned with, American Citizens.

I want to thank Dale and all the guys at NICPAC for allowing me to interview them even with their very busy schedules.

This was a production of Stop The ACLU Blogburst! If you would like to join us, register at the Protest The ACLU Portal. You will be added to our mailing list and emailed further instructions.

We are trying to raise money for full page ads and eventually commercials exposing the ACLU’s radical agenda.

So, Who’s Party is This Guy With?

Posted by Mark on August 4, 2005

If you aren’t a political junkie, you slept peacefully night before last, blissfully unaware of a special election in Ohio. But, the election did occur, for a vacated House seat. The current Congressman took a job in the Bush Administration, leaving the seat open. Shouldn’t have been a big deal. The seat has been solidly Republican for years. The Republican won the race 52% to 48%.

Take a look at the commercial run by one of the candidates. Go ahead. I’ll wait…

Back already? My tea hasn’t even boiled yet. Maybe you should watch it again..

Okay, now we’re both ready. So, who’s party do you think the candidate represented? If you said Republican, you’d be….wrong.

Yep, Hackett ran as a Democrat, but you couldn’t tell it from the ad. Nowhere does he mention he’s a Democrat. Also, nowhere does he mention that he called President Bush an SOB, or that he is a very committed Liberal.

Democrats who run as stealth candidates do a disservice to their party. But it says alot about how far to the right the country has moved when Democrats are forced to run someone like this in hopes of winning elections.
