Are you joking?
In 1940, there were not even 100 million Germans in Europe. Today, there are 1.2 BILLION Muslims spread throughout the world -- a ready made horde to descend upon the "infidels."
In 1945, ONLY the United States had the A-Bomb; Today, about 20 nations have the H-Bomb -- including Pakistan, which is ALWAYS perilously close to a Coup by Islamofascists. Additionally, the Communist allies of the Islamofascists -- North Korea -- have the bomb, and NEED desparately the $$ that Iran and other Islamic nations AND Islamofascist terrorist groups HAVE to spend. Add to that the fact that Iran itself is within 3 months to 3 years of developing their own bomb, and you have a recipe for Armageddon.
In 1938, when WW II started, Germany had almost NO domestic oil supply; Today, MOST Mulsim countries have MORE than enough oil and refining capacity to fuel their war machine, while the West DEPENDS on them for most of our oil, and we haven't built a new refinery in 3 DECADES, nor opened a new oil field to mass production in well over 20 years.
In 1941, our enemies were oceans away, making invasion unlikely, despite the attack on Pearl Harbor; Today, with the advent of modern aviation and shipping, and with the uncooperative nations on our borders AND the incompetence and unwillingness of our government to enforce border security, our nation is overrun by "illegal aliens" who are NOT just Hispanics, and who can bring ALMOST anything over the borders or into our ports -- even in pieces -- reassemble it, and use it against us. The WMD's would come first -- the invasion, a little later.
HOW are they more dangerous than the Nazi's? Hope that definitively answers the question.

I know you probably get a lot of messages asking you to read stuff on your show, but I BEG you to read this...... I would like you to tell America exactly what they did to their soldiers on Tuesday, and what WE think about our countrymen right now. "I hope you are satisfied with what you have done...
Today in the mess hall, where there is usually jovial conversation, there was silence, long faces, and broken spirits... Everyone, to include all American soldiers, marines, sailors, airmen, Iraqi Nationals, Bulgarian Soldiers, etc, etc... was speechless, tired, demoralized and stunned.... all ate in erie silence.....
Last night, while we watched the press conference with the President, there was utter discust, and the common feeling amongst us all that we soldiers are now the loneliest people on Earth.... we fight an enemy over here, and we have a country full of enemies to go home to that are our countrymen. We watched President Bush say his own political funeral, our commander and chief.. as well as ours..... He tried so hard to spin it, but... well.. there is no way to soften such a morale blow.
While you sit and Monday morning quarterback what we work so hard to do for you out here, just know that the spirit of your team is wounded..... YOU liberals, you America have done a great job of demoralizing us... Thank you.
Do us a favor though, when we do come home, spare us the ceremony....... We all now know that it is a bunch of crap, and what you think of us.......
I have to say that right now, I would rather be a pussy ass Frenchman, even though they have no will to fight, at least they have the balls to make a decision and stick with it...... They stuck to thier guns about staying out of this war, even if it was the wrong decision......America on the other hand, goes off half cocked, and when the decision appears to be a hard one, or something that might cost a little bit, they turn tail and run.....
WHAT A NATION OF PUSSIES!!!!
This week I am NOT proud to say that I am an American..........I think it is obvious why... See, we just have told the world that we are not a nation of people who are tough, and will fight for what we believe in... We have told the world that we are a giant coward that will shy away from any difficult challenge...
So, while you eat your cheetos, and sit there and watch your lazy ass get fatter, dumber and happier Joe Citizen.. Just remember this, I, and all my commrades payed a dear price to come this far and have you decide that we should fail...
Realize this, because of your action this week America.... do not expect so many men to be so willing to stand up for your next little whim just to be cut down in the middle of it all............
Realize this also.. you have just put a heavy price on the heads of us all...... Now that we are branded as cowards, we are an easy target, oh so inviting for the taking....... I swore to protect your children in your beds.... yet you fling the door wide open inspite of me to invite the scourge.... Well.... have it your way then.
Because of this, September 11th will soon be overshadowed by these same enemies.. my advice to you is get your lazy, self centered ass up and make peace with your God, and your family.. cause, time will come when they may not be there for you................Because you kicked me in the teeth, and so many others, I know I won't any more.. "

No, Conservatives didn't defeat Allen. Those who may claim on being "Conservative" fall into one of several possible categories.
First, there are those who stayed home on election day -- to "teach Republicans a lesson." They will be the ones who are taught a lesson over the next two years. At best, only unthinking, kneejerk "conservatives" took this path.
Second, there are those who voted FOR THE DEMOCRATS because Webb "claimed to be conservative." These people bought into the lie that this new crop of Dems are somehow "different" from the old school Pelosi's, Levin's, Kennedy's, Kerry's, etc... Face it, stooges, THEY LIED. And if the Webb's of the Democratic party DIDN'T lie, then they have already been marched before Pelosi and been TOLD to put their testosterone -- and any organ that excretes or produces such) in her little lock box. They can only have it back WHEN she says and for WHAT she deems it necessary.
Third, these so-called "conservatives" have been riding a bandwagon since 1994, or perhaps as far back as the Reagan era. This time, they jumped off. They were faux conservatives, Pseudo-conservatives -- nothing more.
Once again, however, it's not the stupid Republicans that will pay the price for their return for power -- it's the REAL conservatives who will be left holding the [EMPTY] bag.

It may be true that most of the newly elected Democrats are "more conservative than those of yesteryear," though I personally DON'T believe it -- they are just more adept at lying about exactly what they DO believe.
Regardless, when this "new class" of Democrats arrives in Washington DC, Nancy Pelosi will call them all into a conference room, and demand the following:
"Gentlemen (and Ladies), I hold in my hand a box. This is a lock box. As you exit this room, each of you will deposit all of the Testosterone you possess, and any element of your being that produces or excretes it.
You will speak ONLY when I tell you to, and then you will say ONLY what I tell you to. You will vote as I say, do as I say, and SMILE while you do it. In public, you will address me as Speaker Pelosi -- NEVER as Nancy, Ms. Pelosi, or the 'chick in charge.' Behind closed doors in our Caucus meeting, you will refer to me as 'Your Highness,' or 'Her Majesty.'
Failure to follow these instructions, or the theft of your Testosterone back for the purposes of growing a spine and speaking your mind is STRICTLY forbidden! VIolation will respult in the choice of another candidate in the primary -- or perhaps a visit to Fort Marcy Park courtesy of Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Remember these words, or else! That is all, Plebes...."

Election Day is over, the votes have been counted, and it's clear that conservatives took a beating. I have always maintained that Christian leaders should not make partisan endorsements — and I never have. But I am unashamed to say that I am a conservative.
In one sense, I think, all Bible-believers are conservative, because we believe in governing our lives by revealed truth rather than by man-made, utopian ideologies. Modern liberalism wants to remove all restraints on people's behavior. Conservatives believe in the moral law. So Bible - believers might be liberal on a lot of issues, at least in the common sense of that word, like helping the poor, but they would be fundamentally conservative in their disposition toward life.
So, what happened in Tuesday's election? The economy is strong. And it's true we're in an unpopular war, but people vote their pocketbooks most often. Yet the conservative movement, which had been gaining ground, has blown it. It has been defeated. Why?
The answer is one that may startle you. Conservatives lost because they deserved to. They failed to live up to the high standards of personal behavior they preach about. And that's what brought them down.
Is there a double standard here? Why should the case of Mark Foley have helped bring down the Republicans? After all, twenty years ago a Democratic congressman, Gerry Studds, had an affair with a male page, disclosed that he was a homosexual, got his wrist slapped by the House, and then got re - elected! Why has Foley's indiscretion turned into Foley-gate?
The answer is because it's just the tip of the iceberg. Look at how the conservatives for years railed against the Democratic liberal establishment and all of its money, the lobbying establishment, the junkets, the payoffs. The conservatives campaigned against it in 1994, only to take over Washington and do exactly the same thing. This is what is known as rank hypocrisy.
Is it unfair that when conservatives do things liberals do, that they, the conservatives, are labeled as hypocrites? No.
According to that great conservative thinker Russell Kirk, the first tenet of conservatism is the preservation of the moral order. True conservatives don't look at government as a plaything by which they can impose their latest ideas on the country; they look at political power as a guardianship, what Chesterton called the democracy of the dead. In other words, we have a debt to those who have gone before us, and the primary debt is to preserve the moral and constitutional order that our forebears fought to defend.
So when a conservative has a much - publicized affair or is outed for improper sexual behavior with pages, or digs into the congressional budget pot to hand out earmarks to his own district, he is a hypocrite to be scorned.
My hope and prayer is that conservatives in America will do some serious, sober soul - searching. We need to get our own act together before we can preach to others, or before we deserve to hold power. And if we break trust, we are breaking trust with the very essence of who we are. Our own character is at stake.
You can talk all you want about the unpopularity of President Bush, or the Iraq war, or immigration. But what this campaign really boiled down to was, well, when it comes to conservatives, it's character, stupid. If conservatives don’t learn that lesson, they will spend a long time in exile — and deservedly so.
Chuck Colson is the Chairman and Founder of BreakPoint and of Prison Fellowship Ministries.
I am not a big fan of Colson, but I generally agree with his assessment of this aspect of the election. Conservatives WERE/ARE hypocrites, and they deserved to lose. They left their principles, and didn't keep their promises, and they deserved to lose for that too.
Now, I didn't deserve to lose -- but I WILL. The Democrats will be merciless on those who kept them from their rightful thrones for the past 12 years. Cooperation to them is very easy to define -- it means CAPITULATION TO THEM.
But, who can argue that Conservatives didn't get just what they deserved? I honestly can't.
So why is it Conservatives are held to higher moral standards than Democrats? And isn't it a 'double standard'?
Let's face some facts. The electorate KNOWS before they ever vote for Democrats, that they HAVE NO MORALS. The entire nation has long been disabused of such notions as ethics or moral absolutes with regard to Democrats -- Ever heard of BILL CLINTON?!?
Conservatives, on the other hand, claim to believe in and support "moral absolutes," and a general "Judeo-Christian Ethic." When Republicans violate those moral and ethical standards to which they lay claim, the Electorate holds them accountable -- like this year. Abrhamoff, Foley, Burns, Allen.... Now, SOME of these people DID indeed violate their self-proclaimed standards, others DID NOT, but were deceptively portrayed as having done so by the Leftist MSM. In any case, the Electorate had seen enough.
Democrats, however, when they violate this same set of standards, are generally laughed off by the electorate, and their lawlessness and criminal behavior is largely ignored by the LEFTIST MSM. Why> Because the People generally KNOW Democratsd have NO morals or ethics, so they EXPECT this kind of behavior out of them. And, because the LEFTIST MSM has a vested interest in the LEFTIST Democratic Party, so they protect their comrades and hide their misdeeds.
A double standard? Colson can't be seeing this for the first time! He suffered dearly for it over 30 years ago! But, thanks be to God, He turned it around for Colson. Let's HOPE God wills to do so for the entire nation -- because we are in a devil of a mess.

I'm beginning to put together some coherent and thought out ideas in my mind of what is to come in light of the November 7 Elections...
To those who doubted me -- I told you so. I'm not gloating about being right though. Even though I KNEW what the outcome would be, I am saddened and disappointed. Not at all shocked or surprised...
THe AMerican people have virtually gauranteed the military loss of Iraq, which will set in motion devastating results. I don't CARE what happens to the idiots who voted to make this possible, but to my family and friends who had the intelligence and insight to understand what the future holds if short-sighted decisions are made. Most of all, though, I feel terribly bad for our troops. Guys and gals, we DO care, and I do support you. No one will abandon you, nor mock you when you come home. Not if I live and breath and am able to stand with you. And what you're doing won't be forgotten, or by God's grace wasted!
Now, for my perspective of what happens in Iraq as a result of November 7th:
With Rummy gone, and President Bush apparently more than willing to kiss up to the Dems, I think the troops have every right to feel demoralized.
I'd say that by mid-summer 2007, the Dems in Congress will begin defunding and forcing the withdrawal of our forces from Iraq -- whether Iraq is ready or not. It would perfectly follow the template of their actions in Southeast Asia. IN 1973, Nixon pulled our troops out of Vietnam -- an "honorable peace" -- with an established SV government, and a "promise" from the Communist NV's not to invade. Just in case, Nixon made a non-aggression pact with the SV's, so that in case the Communists DID invade, we would re-engage and help SV.
Then came Watergate, impeachment, and Nixon's resignation. Ford, an unelected lame duck was powerless when the NV's invaded SV in 1975. He practically BEGGED the Democratic Congress to allow our troops some kind of intervention to help our allies, whom we had PROMISED to support. The Democrats said, "no," defunded all US military operations in SOutheast Asia, and we abandoned our allies -- the South Vietnamese.
Then the NVA invaded Laos, using biological and chemical warfare -- hundreds of thousands were killed. Then the Khmer Rouge took over Cambodia -- MILLIONS were killed...
Expect Democrats -- DESPITE their "promises" -- to shoot for impeachment within the year, and to follow suit on defunding Iraq operation and handing over the Iraqi nation to Iran's Ayatollahs sometime shortly thereafter.
Then of course, just like Carter was elected in '76 because the American people didn't care, Hillary will be elected in '08 -- because the American People WON'T care.

After the absolutely idiotic and inane comments of Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass) last week, I allowed myself a moment of hope. Alas, it was short-lived. I now believe the bump Republicans enjoyed over the last week are fading.
My original perdiction several weeks (months) ago, was that Democrats would gain 22+ seats and regain control of the House, and that they would gain 5+ seats in the Senate -- 5 would bring a tie, 6 would give the Democrats control.
Last week in the wake of the Kerry fiasco, several Senate races tightened -- including Missouri, Montana and Virginia. All of these are Republican seats. All of them are "too close to call" according to pundits. I believe at least 2 of the three will be lost.
To Summarize my Senate perdictions with regard to the seats that are questionable:
Missouri Democrat gain -- McCaskill over Talent (by <1%)
Montana Democrat gain -- Tester over Burns (by 3%)
Ohio Democrat gain -- Brown over DeWine (by 5%)
Pennsylvania Democrat gain -- Casey over Santorum (by 6%)
Rhode Island Democrat gain -- Whitehouse over Chafee (3%+)
Virginia Democrat gain -- Webb over Allen (<1%)
If any of these are incorrect, it is likely to be either the Virginia or Missouri races. Republicans WON'T win both. I think Kyl in Arizona and Corker in Tennessee will BARELY hold on to their Republican seats -- but even these two seats are NOT a sure thing. The seats held by endangered Democrats like Cardin in Maryland, Menedez in New Jersey and Lieberman in Connecticut will remain safely Democrat it appears. Though Leiberman will technically be Independent, he has said he will remain part of the Democratic caucus -- if he had half a brain he could bargain with the Republicans for real power, but I suppose someone has to be the Democrats Don Quixote.
In short, Democrats win 5 or 6 seats, retake Senate.
There are too many House seats to single out, but here's my brief take:
The Democrats have an absolute lock on 13 current Republican seats, and will probably capture 9 more barring a political earthquake. I think they have a realistic shot at at least 3 other Republican seats. I predicted they would win 22+ seats weeks ago, and I've seen relatively little evidence that Republicans have cut into that margin. Though the Republicans MAY pick up one or two Democrat seats in toss-up races, the Democrats retaking the House at this point, from my observations, are beyond the abilities of Republicans to prevent.
In short, Democrats gain 22+, retake House.
Now some analysis and explanations. I think there are several reasons why Democrats will make such gains in the mid-term elections, and why they will retake Congress.
First, let's face it, Republican's have, after 12 years in charge of the Legislative branch of our Government, finally taxed the patience of many Conservatives beyond the breaking point. That process, for me, began WAY back in 1995 with the failure of Newt Gingrich to stand up to the Clinton Government shutdown. I left the Republican Party the next year -- with a little help from disastrous Republican Governor David Beasley in South Carolina. The failure of the Senate in 1999 to convict Comrade Clinton of the impeachment of High Crimes and Misdemeanors paved over the grave of my Republican life.
But instead of becoming MORE dedicated to the principles that got them there, Republicans in Senate in particular, have moderated their stands, compromised their principles -- in short, they've tried to BE Democrats while retaining the Republican labels. Examples? Illegal Immigration, deficit (and pork barrel) spending and failure to push for social issues important to the base. That kind of equivocation never works. Yellow Dog Democrats will NEVER vote for ANY Republican, and trying to be like them will only result in the loss of Republican Conservative base votes.
I find most ironic on this point the fact that the Republicans acutally have a better shot at KEEPING the Senate, while the more deserving Conservative House Republicans will almost certainly be lost.
Because I understand the stakes, I WILL be voting -- for Republicans -- tomorrow. But I'm afraid there are those who have forgotten the stakes...
Which leads to a second reason I think the Democrats will win. It's been over 5 years since 9/11. It's been over 5 years since a major terrorist attacks on the United States. It's been almost 6 years of the MSM (mainstream media) relentlessly pounding on President Bush, the Republican Congress, and the War against Islamofascism. They have largely succeeded in their effort to paint the President as incompetent or evil, to describe the Republican Congress as corrupt, and to portray the Global War in which we are engaged as "unwinnable," "another Vietnam," and "based on a lie." Because most Americans have a short attention span, and due to the fading memories of the events of 9/11, and because we no longer believe the principles of freedom are worth dying for, and because we think the price of fighting terror is too high; for all those reasons, the Democrats will likely win.
No matter how good the economy is, no matter how much income increases, or unemployment goes down or how dangerous our enemies in the world become, it just doesn't "feel right."
"Let's talk to Iran, and North Korea, and Osama," they say, "I mean, we need things. We like peace. If we stop bothering them will they leave us alone so we can play our video games and watch our DVD's and listen to our IPod's?"
These are all valid and observable reasons why I believe the Democrats will win. These are the reasons that our Islamofascist enemies in Al-Queda and and Iran, and our Communist foes in North Korea, Venezuela and Cuba, and those who tacitly back them -- like China and Russia -- desparately want the Democrats to win. Almost as desparately as their accomplices here in America -- the Liberal Democrats themselves.
Please, go vote tomorrow. MAKE ME WRONG! Otherwise, as I've recommended before, learn to speak Arabic. And you might want to go ahead and purchase your prayer rug, and ladies may need to visit the Burkha store....
I recently read a news article in a major Newspaper regarding former Senator John Danforths new book. Here's a portion of the article:.
"While promoting his new book, "Faith and Politics, How the 'Moral Values' Debate Divides America and How to Move Forward Together," Sen. Danforth urged his Republican Party to "disengage" from Christian voters – who have enabled it to win the last three national elections – saying religion has become too divisive a force in American politics.
Danforth, 70, an Episcopal priest, said politics today is too polarized and that the GOP spends too much time trying to appeal to the Christian right – which, in reality, is the party's base. "I think it is bad for the country and ultimately the Republican Party," Danforth declared."
You must understand that Danforth is an "old school" (read: RICH LIBERAL) Republican. He was in Congress for a couple of carefree decades, for those of his ilk. Republicans were a small minority, they had no REAL leadership responsibility, they were able to enjoy the high life, the lobbyist perks, the favor of the Ted Kennedys, Jim Wright's and Tip O'Neill's so long as they minded thier place...
All Danforth wants is those good ole days back. He doesn't want his party, his former colleagues, to have to deal with such serious issues as life and death (abortion, euthanasia, stem cell research funding, cloning, etc), moral questions (homosexual marriage) or survival (the Global War against Islamofascism). It's easier to let the Democrats do that.
Unfortunately, though MOST won't say it, I'm afraid there are too many "Republicans" STILL in office who actually agree with Danforth. Chafee anyone? Spectre? Hmmm...?
