View Article  Clinton Unfit To Be Commander In Chief
Clinton talks a good game but she is skin deep when it comes to national security.
“I want us here in New York to imagine, if extremist terrorists were launching rocket attacks across the Mexican or Canadian border, would we stand by or would we defend America against these attacks from extremists?” she said to roars of approval.
Historically, Clinton has voted and spoken an opposite stance.
Hillary told the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) on 5/24/05 that "a nuclear-armed Iran is unacceptable" yet barely a month later, Senator Clinton voted to immunize the Mullah’s nukes from attack by denying our military a nuclear bunker buster bomb we need to destroy deep underground nuclear sites in Iran (Roll Call 171,7/1/05).
John Spencer expressed his concerns.
"If the Israelis hadn’t taken out the Iraqi nuclear program in 1981, Saddam Hussein would have had a nuclear bomb. We may well have to take out the Iranian nuclear program. Hillary Clinton is playing with fire when she denies our military the weapons they need to do it –because if the Iranian mullahs get nuclear weapons, they will use them "
Senator Clinton didn't offer specifics when she claimed to support “whatever steps are necessary” to defend Israel against Hamas, Hezbollah, Iran and Syria in the military conflict in the Middle East.  Her lack of details has more to do with a conflict of interest, some tied directly to her campaign fundraising.
Past is prologue -- including some recent flip-flopping.
This resolution sponsored by U.S. Senator Rick Santorum was backed by Democrats Evan Bayh of Indiana and Joe Lieberman of Connecticut.
Meanwhile, Roll Call reported early this year that Clinton zealously wants $1 million of U.S. taxpayer dollars pumped into the United Nations Human Rights Commission, a council slated to include Syria, Cuba, Zimbabwe, Sudan and Libya (Roll Call 73, 3/16/06).  Both Israel and the United States opposed creation of this council that was championed by China and Cuba.
Writing in the International Herald Tribune, former Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell and House Speaker Newt Gingrich called this commission supported by Clinton "inadequate" and "distorted":
We found that the Human Rights Commission had become so distorted that "countries with appalling, even monstrous, human rights records - Sudan, Syria, Zimbabwe, Libya, and Cuba, to name a few - could all be seated there." We believed that the situation had deteriorated to the point that the commission was failing at its primary task: monitoring, promoting, and enforcing human rights.
Mitchell and Gingrich even quoted Hillary's favorite First Lady:
Eleanor Roosevelt said "the field of human rights is not one in which compromises on fundamental principles are possible." Unfortunately, the proposed compromise put forward for the Human Rights Council does not adequately address the core institutional problem with the current commission - the requirement to keep human rights violators off the council, while keeping human rights defenders on.
John Spencer's noted Hillary's two faces on letting Syria be a judge of human rights.
"Senator Clinton must be back in her Suha Arafat kissing days. I agree with Speaker Gingrich and Senator Mitchell. American taxpayers shouldn’t have to pay for a Human Rights Council where the Syrians or the genocidal killers in Sudan sit in judgment."
Clinton's leanings seem more dictated by the almighty dollar than any regard for U.S. security.  The Senator has taken money from an anti-sanctions group called the American Iranian Council through wealthy businessmen Hassan Nemazee and Faraj Aalaei.
According to the Center for Responsive Politics, Namazee has contributed $4000 to Clinton’s reelection while Aalaei has given $1000.
The American Muslim Taskforce, composed of at least one Muslim lobbying group which has given money to Clinton, described Israel's defense against Palestinian aggression as "war crimes" this past November.  The American Muslim Taskforce has characterized Israel's fighting as "state-terror" -- and these statements came from a news outlet called The Muslim News.
Part of the American Muslim Alliance, this organization is not a friend of U.S. interests yet Hillary is monetarily entangled with them
"When Abdurahman Alamoudi, friend and sometime adviser on Islamic affairs to Hillary Rodham Clinton, stood before a Muslim crowd in Lafayette Park across from the White House this week and passionately declared his support for the terrorist organizations Hamas and Hezbollah, he was revealing the true face of "moderate" Islam."
Less than a year before September 11, Alamoudi was talking about overtaking the United States.

As revealed in last Friday's New York Daily News, Alamoudi, shortly before he began to work for the Clinton State Department in 1997 as a "goodwill ambassador" to Muslim countries, told the Islamic Association of Palestine in Chicago on December 29, 1996:

"I think if we are outside this country, we can say oh, Allah, destroy America, but once we are here, our mission in this country is to change it. There is no way for Muslims to be violent in America, no way. We have other means to do it. You can be violent anywhere else but in America."

News Max noted a Wall Street Journal article detailing how Clinton's conflicts went far beyond accepting money from the American Muslim Council in 2000 -- and that the obvious dangers long preceded her run for U.S. Senate.  She learned from her husband.

"As recounted by Steven Emerson in the March 13, 1996, Wall Street Journal, Alamoudi, then the executive director of the American Muslim Council, had repeated high-level contacts with the Clinton White House in late 1995 and early 1996, which happened to be the period immediately preceding the suicide bombings in Israel in early 1996. On November 9, 1995 he met with President Clinton and Vice President Gore at a meeting with 23 Muslim leaders at the White House. On December 8, National Security Adviser Anthony Lake met at the White House with Alamoudi and several board members of the American Muslim Council. On February 8, 1996, Mrs. Clinton wrote a newspaper column based on talking points provided by Alamoudi. And on February 20, 1996 (only a few days before the first Hamas bombing of the Number 18 bus in Jerusalem), Mrs. Clinton had Alamoudi's group draw up the Muslim guest list for a White House reception marking the end of the Muslim holy period of Ramadan, the first time such an event had ever been held at the White House."

As early as 1996, Clinton knew that accepting money from these Muslim lobbyists was risky business.

Israel National News documented Hillary Clinton accepting money from these same group.

"...The American Muslim Alliance chapter in Massachusetts held what it called a "successful fundraiser" for First Lady Hillary Clinton at the Park Plaza Hotel in Boston on June 13, 2000. AMA Massachusetts Chair Tahir Ali said afterwards, "We are attempting to send an important message to all AMA chapters: we must support all who have [Muslim] interests at heart, regardless of what part of the country they are running in."
John Spencer pointed out how Hillary's form of supposed "diplomacy" enables and appeases terrorist acts.
"Senator Clinton blames the Bush Administration for Hezbollah's attack against Israel. But Senator Clinton should look in the mirror. The war against Israeli democracy has been going on for fifty eight years. And this latest chapter has been sparked by years of American weakness in the face of terrorism. Senator Clinton says we should go back to policies of the past which she claims worked. While Hezbollah reigns rockets on Israel, Senator Clinton counsels diplomacy and engagement."
Will the rhetoric from Hillary Clinton be based on the highest bidder or what is best for the defense of the United States?
The Hill reported Democrats racing to propose resolutions signaling strong support for Israel during its violent showdown with Hezbollah, including a U.S. Senate resolution expected this week supporting “Israel’s right of self-defense … to take appropriate action to deter aggression by terrorist groups and their state sponsors” and condemning the governments of Iran and Syria for their financial backing of Hezbollah and Hamas.
John Spencer has been blunt on what America faces and why Hillary Clinton is not qualified to be Commander-In-Chief, let alone a U.S. Senator.
"Terrorists are watching. They see the senator from New York more concerned about their safety than ours. Senator Clinton is playing more to the ACLU now than the welfare of Americans facing the prospect of nuclear dirty bombs exploding in Times Square."

Ignore the woman behind the curtain!!!
"On the surface, the $182.85 and $145.77 charges at Hampton Inn on 5001 Fleur Drive seem to be the first hint that Clinton’s staff is networking in the critical 2008 presidential caucus state."
Friends of Hillary communications director Ann Lewis said the charges were a "bizarre, inexplicable clerical error."
“It caused quite a stir on our office,” she said yesterday. “But one of them was actually a staffer who went to Texas and the other was a photographer in Albany who went to F.O.H. events… We don’t know how it was billed to Iowa.”
Well, at least the photographer hadn't been in the Hamptons and the money wasn't spent on any black helicopters.
View Article  Marist Poll: Commanding Lead For Spencer

John Spencer has taken a commanding 21 point lead over his Republican opponent KT McFarland, 36-15, according to the most recent WNBC/Marist Poll.

In the first month since John Spencer was chosen as the Republican and Conservative nominee for U.S. Senate, the former Yonkers Mayor has ratcheted up his campaign.  He has the money, the message and momentum all on his side.

"Today's WNBC/Marist poll of registered New York voters swings the pendulum of (seemingly random) GOP primary poll results in the other direction, with John Spencer up 36% to 15%. The poll finds 49% undecided, but you've got to figure that most of those people won't wind up voting at all. It's that kind of race."

People will be coming out to vote and these are voters John Spencer can reach.  People know what's at stake in this U.S. Senate race and no one should underestimate the resolve of sentiment against Hillary Clinton.   Take a close look at those negatives.  Clinton's negatives continue to rise.  She has experienced no boost in poll numbers.  By no measure has John Spencer ever been turned back by Clinton and he has continued to whittle away at her margin.

According to a detailed Urban Elephants chart, every major polling source in New York state (Quinnipiac, Marist, Siena, Zogby, Strategic Vision) has shown John Spencer gaining ground on Hillary Clinton by margins of 2-6 percent in almost ever poll each have taken since the Spring.  As important, the polls have shown Hillary steadily losing ground and gaining much higher unfavorable ratings.

As people learn more about John Spencer, his numbers have steadily climbed -- and we must work even harder now to spread the word.  With Clinton's glass jaw showing, expect some seismic shifts in the coming weeks.

The dramatic gains in the Republican primary were due to Spencer's hard work and determination, competing with a crowd of five candidates over the past year.

The gains against U.S. Senator Hillary Clinton can only turn out to be as dramatic.
