Paul Martin, Jack Layton And Corruption Of Government

I found Andrew Coyne's blog site tonight and must recommend it to all.

Now that events in Iraq and Lebanon and Syria and the rest of the Middle East have proven my dear leftist brother completely and totally wrong about Bush and Iraq and everything else since Arab terrorists killed almost four thousand people by prodigious attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, I'm going to relax on the international front and cast an eye to matters in Canada, where Americans can see what the Democrats would do should they return to power there.

In Canada, corruption is a natural outgrowth of the very existence of the left. Massive corruption follows the left like a shadow, as does violence. The reason Paul Martin is turning to Jack Layton is simple: Layton is game for access to anything resembling power. He is the cheapest of dates.

Captain Ed of Captain's Quarters weighs in: "Ironically, Martin may have saved his party by conducting the same kind of manipulation of Canadian tax money as Adscam, albeit legally this time. He has taken money from the tax base and used it to satisfy political allies and garner support for the Liberals. Layton, on the other hand, has deliberately bolstered a government with demonstrable ties to corruption and graft -- a position that will not likely win many new converts to the NDP among Canadians."

Until the vote window moves to Ontario. Can Ontarians possibly vote Liberal again given the scale of Liberal corruption? Ontarians need to understand that, in the case of another election, the rest of the country is expecting them to forego the selfishness that has so often coloured their judgement and elected disastrous federal Liberal governments, whose criminality is now on display for all to see. Can Ontario voters, just once, choose to uphold Canadian law?

We'll see.

Flattening Tom Friedman

I watched for about thirty seconds as Friedman tried to make the case for his new book, "The World Is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-first Century" on Charlie Rose and wondered how long before this would happen:

Power Line elegantly dismantles Thomas Friedman:

"Friedman is the oracle of the half-hearted left because he is the Hans Blix of commentators. He keeps himself safe by delivering something for everyone in his assessments. In the end this aids only those who are served by public uncertainty -- the cowards and the ruthless. But it also flatters the vanity of those who mistake their ambivalence for sophistication."(Emphasis added)

"Friedman's final pre-war piece today is a classic of smug gutlessness. He wants to see Saddam ousted. But he's disgusted with Bush. He's also ashamed of the French. So where does he stand? Everywhere and nowhere. He's adamant only that everybody's a beast or a fool except Tom. Whatever happens, he'll have been proven right. "

Just Kos

Little Green Footballs wedgies Markos Moulitsas "Screw Them" Zuniga's underpants up around his ears. Here's the whole thing:

"Markos Moulitsas Zuniga of Daily Kos has done his best to make it hard to find the comment he posted on April 1, 2004, about the Americans who were torn apart and hung from a bridge in Fallujah. He erased it from the Google cache and the Internet Archive, and redirects the “permalink” on the page to an unrelated page at his site, but I managed to find a URL that still works—until the Daily Koward notices our referrals: Daily Kos: Corpses on the Cover.

'Every death should be on the front page (2.70 / 40)

Let the people see what war is like. This isn’t an Xbox game. There are real repercussions to Bush’s folly.

That said, I feel nothing over the death of merceneries [sic]. They aren’t in Iraq because of orders, or because they are there trying to help the people make Iraq a better place. They are there to wage war for profit. Screw them.

UPDATE at 4/21/05 10:06:04 pm:'

To see Kos’s back-room machinations at work, click the date next to his name at the bottom of the post, which is supposed to be the permalink to his comment, and see where you end up."

That Markos Moulitsas "Screw Them" Zuniga is still thriving is hardly amazing: the hatred on the left has metastasized by leaps and bounds since he grunted out that putrid sentiment. I just hope he keeps on keeping on, because he has become a posterboy for the demise of the loony left. To paraphrase Hank Hill, just when I think I've heard the stupidest thing ever, Markos Moulitsas "Screw Them" Zuniga keeps right on talking.

I say we give him all the rope he asks for, and much more. Such as more links to the record.

The Stench Rises

As if the daily doses of scandal from the Gomery Inquiry weren't enough, Canada's international reputation is about to take another hit with yet another thread tying the Canadian government to Oil-For-Food, Saddam Hussein and Kofi Annan.

Yr. Fthfl. Svnt. has previously pointed out the strange connections between the French and Canadian ruling elites, the U.N. and Oil-For-Food. With each passing day the Canadian establishment, led by the Chretien-Martin Liberals, are looking more and more like a national infestation of dung-beetles.

Update: The Belmont Club is all over the story. Note the increase in heat and light being cast upon one Maurice F. Strong. Read it all.

Air America Augers In

Sky Captain O'Franken And The World Of Garafalo are going down soon, thanks to the marketplace of ideas. Bill O'Reilly gets it right during his conversation with Brian Anderson, author of South Park Conservatives: "I think it’s really simple. I just don’t think Americans whether they’re liberal, conservative, moderate want to hear that their country is terrible twenty-four hours a day."

Update: NRO's Byron York further examines Air America's Year Of Decline.

"'We're going to use Terri Schiavo later on,' Dean said of the [late] brain-damaged Floridian..."

That's right: that is Howard Dean, Leader of the Democrat Party in the U.S., preaching to the faithful on his plans for the 2006 elections.

Bush Unleashes Attack On Terrorist Lair

George W. Bush pressed on against a corrupt UN's designs and attacked Saddam in Iraq. He put the bastard in jail, killed or captured his dummies, imposed a democratic government (of course you can - he just did exactly that) and now the President is going after the organization that is the ultimate front for world terrorism: he has nominated John Bolton as the United States' Ambassador to the U.N. It's bold and brilliant and, like most of Dubya's decisions, will bear fruit for U.S. goals. Bolton will be approved and will then cut a swath at the U.N.

I'm listening to C-SPAN: Is it just me, or does it seem that the Democratic committee members are talking past Mr. Bolton and out to the hometown choir? Everyone knows what happens next: Barbara Boxer relentlessly accuses Bolton of being stupid and wrong and also hanging out with Condoleeza Rice.

Then Bolton will be confirmed.

Or so the Germans would have us believe.

Good News From Iraq

Arthur Chrenkoff, James Taranto and Joe Katzman regularly serve up the amazing Good News From Iraq. It's amazing because the good news is so good, and because Arthur Chrenkoff is the most thorough chronicler of the subject. It must be a ton of work, because it takes ages just to read through Chrenkoff's comments and excerpts, which become mere notes compared to the explosion of revelatory information one finds through voluminous links. Some stories are of practical matters, such as reconstruction and security; others show Iraqis adapting to and growing into the gigantic edifice of their newborn freedom.

There is good news from Iraq. The stories are better than fascinating; they are heartening and hopeful.

Kill Power Line!

Markos Moulitsas “Screw Them” Zuniga declares jihad for credibility and, judging by this steaming pile of crap, for good reason. This is an angry man-child, a juvenile. He is neither a writer nor a journalist; he's a monkey jacking off in the zoo for anyone who will stop and watch.

Meanwhile, Power Line has dutifully filed this review of the entire Schiavo-memo story, fully acknowledging its errors and those of other bloggers who got it wrong, but also pointing out the usual dance from a red-handed MSM. In stark contrast to the aforementioned, this article actually has grace, logic and honesty.

Now: does anyone remember the last time Markos Moulitsas “Screw Them” Zuniga reflected on any of his innumerable fiascos?

For instance, his heroic fight against the horrible crime of outing Valerie Plame, which certainly had Markos Moulitsas “Screw Them” Zuniga all worked up and rallying the opposition. Turns out the investigation was over and done months ago. And Plame loses. In case anyone needs reminding, we knew that here.

I know: I didn't notice any backtracking on Plame at Markos Moulitsas “Screw Them” Zuniga's website, either. And I'm willing to bet that I never will. While approaching even the lowliest level of journalism, Markos Moulitsas “Screw Them” Zuniga's website is at its core a gigantic memory hole for the left.

Thankfully, Zuniga's world is as Vegas: what happens there stays there.

"Next time you visit Lebanon, it will be a free country."

Spirit Of America has launched a blog that chronicles the return of Lebanon to her people. This cannot happen soon enough.

British Academics To Institutionalise Anti-Israeli Bigotry

The Palestinian propaganda campaign is set to claim a victory in Britain. Melanie Phillips alerts us to the accelerated intellectual downfall of British academia in The monstrous regiment of university teachers: "What is notable about the AUT motion is that it reflects the truly shocking ignorance of the region's history and current political reality, the resulting deep gullibility to propaganda based on lies, and the consequent vicious double standards and prejudice that now characterise British received opinion on the subject of Israel. Yet these are our university teachers, the very people responsible for shaping the assumptions of a society, whose own profound ignorance, prejudice and twisted morality are now on such conspicuous display."

When the only means for Jewish academics to maintain standing in their profession is to denounce, in the AUT's words, Israel's "colonial and racist policies", then ignorance, bigotry and totalitarianism in Britain's universities has well and truly won.



TNR Finds The Silver Lining

Martin Peretz has written a comprehensive review of Dubya's achievements and finds a lot of good; would that the DUh crowd were as flexible in their thinking. How long before Peretz faces vilification from the left?

Speaking of judging Dubya, I recommend Frontpage Magazine's symposium Appeasement Then And Now. The panel includes Pat Buchanan, Michael Ledeen, Dr. Charles Kupchan, Victor Davis Hanson, and Danielle Pletka.

AdScam and The U.N. Oil-For-Food Scandal: Joined At The Hip?

The Canadian AdScam hearings are now revealing a rampage of corruption and greed by the Liberal Party of Canada, especially its Quebec wing, that rivals anything found in France or the U.N. In fact, its growing tentacles may yet be shown to extend into that Mother Of All Scams, the U.N. Oil-For-Food scandal, according to this powerful exposé by the Western Standard’s Kevin Steel. Read the whole thing.

It's doubtful many Canadians are prepared to buy Paul Martin’s story that he did not know about AdScam; the man was Canada’s Finance Minister for the ten years leading up to his takeover of the Prime Minister’s Office from the vile Jean Chretien, on whose watch AdScam flourished, and against whom Martin schemed for that entire time. And the reality is this old saw: if as Canada's Minister of Finance he knew nothing about AdScam, then he sure as hell isn't qualified to lead the country. Conversely, if he did know about AdScam and looked the other way, perhaps in the knowledge that it could eventually hurt Chretien, then he is certainly eminently qualified to be Canadian Prime Minister and perhaps even Secretary-General of the United Nations.

Not surprisingly, it is now being reported that the Canadian government will soon take up a posture against the U.S. Congressional Oil-For-Food investigations by joining France, Spain, Russia, China, Germany and, inexplicably, Britain and Australia, in declaring support for Kofi Annan.

It's time to sink Canada's insanely greedy Liberal Party. All of them, including present PM Paul Martin, have got to go, now and for all time. They have long treated bovine Canadian taxpayers as dupes for their looting schemes, and seem prepared to rob them blind even if it means obstructing the U.S. in the U.N. Security Council and pimping for Saddam.

The good news is that bloggers seem ready to help Canadians take down their corrupt political/media establishments and rescue Canada from the Liberal Party once and for all.

George Bush told the truth. A great many of us knew it all along.

"The Commission found no evidence of political pressure to influence the Intelligence Community's pre-war assessments of Iraq's weapons programs. As we discuss in detail in the body of our report, analysts universally asserted that in no instance did political pressure cause them to skew or alter any of their analytical judgments. We conclude that it was the paucity of intelligence and poor analytical tradecraft, rather than political pressure, that produced the inaccurate pre-war intelligence assessments."
