America under attack
Andi C over at Andi’s World has written about one of the most disgusting articles I have read in a long time. Apparently Georgia State Senator Steen Miles (D) tried to get a resolution through the local state government to recognize Jane Fonda for all her charitable work in the state. When I was in the Marine Corps during Vietnam ERA we had a much used expression, “NFW!”
This was a dumb move, even for a Democrat. The resolution failed to pass when all the Senators but one voted against it. Even Miles voted against the resolution in the end. Jane Fonda tried to get the senator to withdraw the resolution but a Republican senator insisted on a vote to get it on record:
“I can think of no living American who is less worthy of this honor,” Republican Sen. John Douglas declared. “She is as guilty of treason as Benedict Arnold and Tokyo Rose.”
On July 25, 2005 All Headlines News covered a story about Jane Fonda starting another one of her war protests. This one will be a road trip that will begin March 11, 2006:
Santa Fe, NM (AHN) – Jane Fonda will be taking her anti-war act across the country, starting in March 2006, when she will ride a bus, run on vegetable-oil, to anti-war protests against Operation: Iraqi Freedom.“I can’t go into any detail except to say that it’s going to be pretty exciting,” Fonda tells the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
“I’ve decided I’m coming out,” Fonda told an audience in Santa Fe, New Mexico over the weekend in support of her book “My Life So Far.”
“I have not taken a stand on any war since Vietnam. I carry a lot of baggage from that.”
So why now. I’ll tell you what I think, her book and politics! Jane Fonda is the third largest contributor to the Shadow Party. The Shadow Party is made up of 527’s that came about due to a loophole in the McCain-Feingold Act of March 27, 2002. George Soros, Hillary Clinton and Harold McEwan Ickes are the main people who established and organized the Shadow Party. Supposedly it supports the Democratic party. But things are not always as they seem. The recent elections and the up coming Presidential election have been in the sights of the DSA and its front organizations and affiliates since the mid nineties.
Let’s take a little walk through history:
When Bill and Hillary Clinton first occupied the White House in 1993, the media celebrated the symbolic transfer of power from the World War II generation – exemplified by the highly-decorated combat airman George Herbert Walker Bush – to the baby boom generation, which the Clintons epitomized.In truth, the comparison was less than half correct. Baby boomers had fought and died as bravely as their fathers had done. More than three million served in Vietnam – about two-thirds of that number voluntarily. Over 58,000 died on its battlefields.
The Clintons represented only a part of the baby boom – the draft-dodgers, anti-war activists and New Left radicals. Theirs, however, was that portion of the 1960s generation on which the media chose to shine its spotlight. And theirs is the portion that strives, to this day, to lead Americans down the discredited paths of socialism and other “progressive” creeds.
They are the Shadow Party.
I lived through that time in history. I was part of it. I saw first hand how these people systematically moved out into the forefront of the “hippie” crowd. The Civil Rights Movement and the War in Vietnam had a tremendous effect on my generation. Raised in the shadows of World War II and the Cold War and Atom Bomb anxiety had a profound effect on all of us. Some like the hippies cried out for peace, love, understanding, and harmony. Others like the radical groups [Black Panthers, Weather Underground, and Socialists] took advantage of the hippie movement or rather culture and used it to meet their own political agenda. Those people have all grown up now and faded into the obscurity of time like the domestic uncertainty and violence of the time, or did they? Discoverthe network.org has some interesting points and information about these radical group and people in the sixties’. Read on:
The New Left Returns
The New Left never died. It merely changed its tactics.
The Shadow Party replicates with eerie faithfulness the Dionysian counterculture of the 1960s, with its use of rock concert fundraisers; its advocacy of marijuana legalization; its deployment of gutter language as a weapon of protest; its resort to organized street violence; and its hysterical jeremiads against George Bush and the War on Terror.More importantly, however, it commands a power that the youthful rebels of the 1960s never wielded. Aging veterans of the New Left have spent thirty-five years infiltrating U.S. institutions at every level, acquiring influential positions in government, finance, academia, the bar, organized labor, medicine, and even in police departments, the armed forces and the intelligence community.
The Shadow Party is the ultimate instrument of the New Left’s drive for power. As the baby boomers ripen into middle age, it represents their last, best hope to achieve the revolution for which they have yearned all their lives.
To understand their movements today, it is helpful to go back and revisit the events that occurred during the Vietnam era in the sixties and seventies.
An uncanny number of Shadow Party leaders played direct roles in the New Left movement of the 1960s. Many bear a heavy share of personal responsibility for the military catastrophe in Vietnam.Jane Fonda, for example, has been the third-largest financial contributor to the Shadow Party in 2004. Few Vietnam veterans will ever forget “Hanoi Jane’s” propaganda tours of North Vietnam, or her radio broadcasts during which she denounced U.S. troops as war criminals and called on GIs to defect.
Democrat candidate John Kerry has a similar reputation among veterans. His 1971 testimony before the Fullbright Committee, during which he accused U.S. troops of systematic torture, massacres and other war crimes, enabled North Vietnamese jailers, propagandists and interrogators to justify the real tortures they inflicted on U.S. prisoners.
We can see this same complicity today with one major exception. Vietnam did not declare war on us, attack us, or promise to destroy us and cast our ashes into the wind to be spread to the four corners of the world. That means that if Jane Fonda or any other American gives aide to our enemy, under the Constitution, they are committing “treason!” Jane Fonda and her comrades need to take heed these words. We are in a state of war in a fight for our lives and our very existence.
Perhaps no living American carries a heavier burden of personal responsibility for the Vietnam disaster than John Kerry’s mentor and political sponsor, Senator Edward Moore Kennedy.Now in his seventies, Kennedy is preparing to pass the torch of the Democrat Party to his baby boom successors. But that torch represents something far different today than it did on January 20, 1961, when President John F. Kennedy declared in his inaugural address:
“[T]he same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe – the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God.
Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans
“Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.”
Today, Edward Kennedy champions the very belief that his brother denounced – that “the rights of man come from the generosity of the state.” Instead of calling on Americans to “support any friend” and “oppose any foe,” Ted Kennedy works daily to undermine America’s war effort, with speeches as strident as any that emanated from the New Left during the Vietnam era.
“Before the war, week after week after week after week, we were told lie after lie after lie after lie,” Kennedy roared from the Senate floor on October 16, 2003. “Iraq was not a breeding ground for terrorism. Our invasion has made it one.”
In the same speech, Kennedy thundered, “The trumped-up reasons for going to war have collapsed [T]he president’s war is revealed as mindless, needless, senseless and reckless.”
The invasion of Iraq “could well become one of the worst blunders in more than two centuries of American foreign policy,” Kennedy charged in a January 14, 2004 speech before a gathering sponsored by Hillary Clinton’s think tank, the Center for American Progress.
And finally, Kennedy declared in an April 5, 2004 speech at the Brookings Institution:
“This president has now created the largest credibility gap since Richard Nixon. He has broken the basic bond of trust with the American people. He’s the problem, not the solution. Iraq is George Bush’s Vietnam, and this country needs a new president.”
In fact, it is Kennedy, not President Bush, who seems determined to treat America to a repeat of the Vietnam catastrophe. And he is just the man to do it.
How Kennedy Lost the War in Vietnam
Leftwing historians have carefully insulated Ted Kennedy from the taint of Vietnam. “His name hardly appears in most histories of the Vietnam War,” writes Laurence Leamer in Sons of Camelot, “but the work he did may have had as much impact on changing public opinion as any of the addresses given by his brother [Robert F. Kennedy] or other antiwar senators.”Indeed, as the Vietnam War neared its end, Ted Kennedy’s activities undermined U.S. strategy in ways far more concrete than the impotent posturing of such prominent Senate doves as George McGovern and Eugene McCarthy.
Historians have tried hard to conceal the glee with which America’s enemies overseas greeted Nixon’s downfall. Had Nixon remained in power, South Vietnam might well have retained its freedom.
Nixon had vowed to re-deploy US troops in Vietnam if the Communists broke their treaty. His threat was credible. Nixon had invaded Cambodia, bombed Hanoi and mined Haiphong in the face of fierce protests at home and abroad. The Communists feared him, because they knew he would act.
The threat of U.S. intervention had kept Taiwan and South Korea free for decades, under circumstances very like those of Vietnam. Nixon’s peace plan could have worked. But Ted Kennedy made sure that Nixon had no opportunity to keep his promise to the Vietnamese.
By the time General Giap’s tanks came rolling into Saigon in 1975, Nixon was gone.
It is ironic, in hindsight, that Kennedy skewered Nixon for precisely the sorts of illegal harassment and surveillance that his brothers Jack and Bobby had routinely inflicted on their political foes. As America’s uncrowned royal family, the Kennedys could get away with such abuses. Nixon could not.Ted Kennedy brought all the power of his family’s political machine to bear in ousting Richard Nixon. He personally wrote the “Special Prosecutor” law which doomed Nixon to an open-ended witch hunt, without budget limitations, then strong-armed Nixon’s Attorney General Elliot Richardson into appointing Kennedy loyalist Archibald Cox as America’s first Special Prosecutor.
Kennedy conspired with Cox to stack the Watergate investigation with hundreds of New Left zealots and Kennedy family retainers. No fewer than eight of Cox’s eleven special counsels were Kennedy operatives who had served in the JFK administration.
Nixon’s resignation on August 9, 1974 snuffed out the last light of hope for the beleaguered people of Southeast Asia.
Between 1973 and 1974, Kennedy pushed through a series of bills that cut U.S. funding to South Vietnam by 80 percent. In so doing, he doomed Vietnam and Cambodia to years of Communist tyranny and genocide. Two-and-a-half million Indochinese were slaughtered by the Communists in the three years that followed.
With ample supplies and funding, it is possible that the South Vietnamese and Cambodians could have held out – with no need for U.S. troops. But once Kennedy cut their funding, they fell like wheat before the Communist scythe.
The movers and shakers of today’s Shadow Party learned their craft at Kennedy’s knee. Some – like John Kerry – learned it directly from the Master himself. Kerry worked on Ted Kennedy’s 1962 Senate campaign. A Kennedy speechwriter – Adam Walinsky – helped Kerry prepare his infamous 1971 testimony to the Fullbright Committee, in which he denounced U.S. troops as war criminals.Others, less prominent than Kerry, followed the Master’s example from afar. But in one way or another, virtually every baby boomer in the Shadow Party arose from the caldron of New Left activism that Kennedy had stirred.
Even as the last American troops were pulling out of Vietnam, Bill Clinton and Harold Ickes worked behind the scenes to cut financial aid to our allies in South Vietnam and Cambodia. Clinton first met Ickes in 1970 when they worked together on Project Pursestrings – a grassroots lobbying effort to push through the Hatfield-McGovern Amendment, which called for pulling the plug on U.S. funding of anti-Communist forces in southeast Asia.
In 1973, the House Judiciary Committee invited one Hillary Rodham to join its team of investigators seeking causes to impeach Richard Nixon. The 26-year-old attorney’s radical, antiwar activism had caught their attention. Hers was just the sort of crusading spirit they needed for the Nixon probe.
How do our troops and veterans feel about Jane Fonda? I’m sure we all know but let’s read it in the words of one of our Vietnam vets in the context of today’s War on Terror:
“Jihad JaneWith a hat tip to Ollie North for the title
What a prize to show for her life of toil,
A bus that runs on vegetable oil;
To keep it running will prove no strain,
Run a fuel line from her peanut brain.
As once again she shows us all
How wrong we are and how we’ll fall.
She’ll grant no quarter, cut no slack,
Get her picture taken on a camel’s back.
Jihad Jane will show us once again,
She’s smarter than all the President’s men;
I doubt Sun Tzu could tell us more
Than Jihad Jane when it comes to war;
She’ll save the world, bold Barbarella,
More wily and wise than any Army fella.
While she fancies herself truly Machiavellian
A more apt description is piggy Orwellian.
It’s true Jane could write an encyclopedia
On fooling the drooling mainstream media.
Princes of primetime breathlessly follow;
Sputum she spouts they eagerly swallow.
Trumpet her tripe as trustworthy truth,
Pushing her pap down the throats of our youth.
Reporters will climb right on down in that sewer,
Covering every mile of Jane’s veggie-fueled tour.
While wiser minds wait, holding their breath,
Warily wondering just how much death
All her agitprop antics will incite this time,
And whose lives will be forfeit for one fool’s crime.
In most scripts of life, we become wiser with age;
But this airhead actress cannot get to that page.
So she’ll be well remembered, as well she should,
As the dumbest damned broad in Hollywood.

We must not sit back complacently and allow these radicals to again succeed in their plot to undermine the efforts of our government and our troops. We must not let them get away with enabling our enemies and therefore supporting our enemies. There is much more at stake here than the spread of Communism in a few small countries in Southeast Asia. The peace and security of our country and the world are in jeopardy. The Islamists waging war on us and the rest of the world offer only three choices” conversion, slavery, or death!
We also must stop the travesty that is occurring in the media under the guise of the First Amendment! Many of these Shadow Party members own or control our media. They dictate what news will or will not be given to the public. They are practicing censorship. They are hiding behind the First Amendment to prevent the public from discovering their insidious plot to create the Revolution they were unable to ignite in the sixties.
These people are far more dangerous than the terrorists. They stay in the “shadows” as they work to destroy America from within. They are educated and have infiltrated every level of our government, labor unions, educational systems, and legal systems. They must be stopped.
One of the best ways to stop them is to destroy their anonymity. By exposing their names, they lose their one major advantage and their one major tool necessary to succeed. Once exposed, they can no longer carry out their secret agendas. If we all look at our own elected officials, their backgrounds, their supporters, we can stop their efforts. If necessary we can vote them out of office. I for one “will not go quietly into the night!”
