Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

Browsing Posts tagged quisling

Al-Awlaki is committing treason. I do not believe that he has been convicted of treason. In this Jack has a point. That being said …

I recall that in the out on the western frontier many a sheriff’s would put up ‘wanted dead or alive’ posters or even “wanted dead” posters in public spaces. The “wanted” were then typically made dead. The end result was that in the West many people by the beginning of the 20th century slept without locking their doors. Were those sheriff’s outside the law? At the very least al-Awlaki is an outlaw.

Consider this: during WWII Americans were caught during the battle of the bulge wearing American uniforms, but fighting for the Germans. These American were recruited before the war. They helped train Germans to speak better English and then they accompanied these German troops into battle to wreak havoc behind American lines. After capture they were shot without a trial. This was done on orders from Ike.

No one filed a charges against Eisenhower for killing these ‘allegedly’ treasonous Americans. Why? Because those who take up arms against us on the battlefield are at war with us. Because during war one does not have to abide by civilian rules of engagement on the battlefield. Similarly, we also did not read the Jap’s their Miranda rights before we turned a flamethrower on them as they hid in their bunkers.

Al-Awlaki is on the battlefield. The term battlefield has been forever more been changed by the Islamic Jihad that threatens our civilization. The battlefield now includes the cockpits of airliners. The discotheques, pizza parlors and bus stops of the world are also on the battlefield. The battlefield is not a plain in the middle of nowhere with armed uniformed men facing other uniformed armed men. The battlefield is now fought in a suitcase buried in the cargo compartment of an Airbus over Scotland.

The Islamic Jihadists like al-Awlaki hide behind their woman and children. From this position they attack our women and children. The likes of al-Awlaki do not wear uniforms to announce their allegiance. They attack the unarmed in their homes, offices and shops or on their way to these places. They do so because they are seeking to destroy our civilization.

What rules? What decency? What limits? This is a war being waged by a band of unwashed thugs, dressed in street garb — goaded on by imams such as al-Awlaki. In WWII we used intelligence to kill Admiral Yamamoto. He was the leader who planned the attack on Pearl Harbor. Al-Awlaki is a leader of the Jihadist army that plans attacks on civilians and soldiers alike. Killing him with high explosives is in line with the manner in which he kills. We used planes to target Yamamoto; the attack on our fleet was conducted with similar aircraft. Killing the Jihadist Al-Awlaki, a US citizen, who has placed himself on the battlefield, is an act of war during this time of war.

WWII was fought with armies using tanks, planes, and ships. The National Socialists used tanks, planes, and ships. Did we become National Socialists because we too used tanks, planes, and ships? The war today is conducted in the streets using bombs, with the chief target being those who are not wearing a uniform. Those we fight do not wear uniforms. Should we avoid killing them because they are not organized into battalions and dressed in some homogeneous garb?

The Jihadists use the Geneva convention as a weapon to be turned on the civilization that created it. Our civilization must defend itself from this perversion. Similarly, our constitution is not a suicide pact to be used against us. We must fight this war using what are the tanks and planes of this war. This means high explosives detonated without a notice of intent, in order to prosecute with extreme prejudice the Jihadist scum who would murder us in our sleep.

To the extent it is still a viable political entity, Rush says nominating McCain or Huckabee will be the coup de grace. Sounds about right.

Hey, it wouldn’t be that crazy, would it? They look good together.

Let the Huckster slide over to the Democratic side now – call it the “quisling ticket,” the “unity ticket” or maybe even the “dream ticket” if you want, since both men propose to fulfill our most audacious imaginings – and leave the Republican slot open for someone grounded in reality. That would balance the choice in November.

This may be the most interesting evidence yet that Mike Huckabee is, in fact, the Whore of Babylon:

They came to hear Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee speak, but first the crowd of hundreds had to sit through a soft-sell pitch on the wonders of multi-level marketing.

For half an hour, two businessmen paced the stage where Huckabee would soon stump. They never said the name of the company during their talks, but afterward some members of the crowd shared with others the good news of a company called Quixtar Inc.

Quixtar is a sibling company of multi-level marketing giant Amway – and, according to Huckabee’s public schedule, the host of the event.

“Religious” business people have had a longstanding affinity with multi-level marketing in this country, which if I was not on my lunch break I could go on and on about. Think Andy Willoughby. (And if you told me Andy was a Huckabee supporter, I suppose I would be less than shocked).

So, long story short, another reason to fear the Huckster.

It’s the beginning of the new year, and two established supporters of illegal immigration – Mike Huckabee and John McCain – are near the top of the Republican pecking order as the 2008 presidential primaries are about to begin.

For some indeterminate reason, I am inspired to remind all of my fellow GOP’ers to maintain a critical eye:

Just Say No To The Republican National Committee.

As we draw closer to the Iowa caucuses, the Golden Globes of modern political polling, here’s what we have on the Huckster:

Mike Huckabee is overselling his record of cracking down on illegal aliens as governor, claiming he ordered his state police to arrest illegal aliens when in fact he never signed the agreement with federal authorities that would have allowed it.

Mr. Huckabee signed a bill that began the process, but he never followed through with signing an agreement with the Department of Homeland Security to secure training for state police officers. Without it, they cannot enforce federal immigration law.

We do not need the quisling holding elected office.

Yes, when you are a front runner “that’s part of the deal,” as the Huckster so aptly put it: People check to see whether your statements are true.

Welcome to the big leagues – that wacky, schizoid realm where you are supposed to tell the truth.

Unfortunately, the Washington Post has fact-checked Mike Huckabee and discovered what so many others have been saying for nearly a month: Huckabee is truth-challenged.

One leading rival, Fred Thompson, has accused Huckabee of having “championed” an effort to permit illegal immigrants to benefit from in-state tuition rates at state universities. Huckabee has denied the charge, claiming that his support was limited to a much more restrictive scholarship program….

During his annual “State of the State address” to the Arkansas state legislature in January 2005, Huckabee proposed making “any student graduating from a high school in Arkansas” eligible for state financial aid. He said it was “terribly unjust” to deny such aid solely on the basis of the student’s immigration status, “a status that he had no decision in and no control over.”

It is hard to fathom how redirecting limited state resources from legal residents to trespassers is “unjust” in any way at all. The operating assumption must be that the legal residents who lost out would never know to complain.
