John Spencer has released a new commercial that criticizes Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton for failing to protect Americans.
Please view this hard-hitting and factual ad. Tell us what you think.
This is one message we must get out to New Yorkers.
It could have been another 9/11.
American civilians flying home, targeted by enemies of freedom, islamic fascists with a sole aim of destroying our way of life.
It was to be a violent terrorist threat, one that British and American intelligence prevented, thanks to parts of the Patriot Act and an NSA program Hillary Clinton didn't want.
Senator Clinton points fingers at the Patriot Act, playing to people's fears over wiretapping.
But it's surveillance that's saving lives, necessary efforts to protect Americans from a real terrorist threat.
Instead, Clinton voted to undermine the NSA and parts of the Patriot Act -- as The Spencer Blog has detailed.It was her way of appeasing the left-wing of her party, all in preparation for 2008.
Read the statement Senator Clinton put out against The Patriot Act and NSA wiretapping on December 16, 2005 -- just last year -- where she called such important provisions "unnecessary surveillance."
Here is a record of Senator Clinton's vote on that same day against the USA PATRIOT Improvement and Reauthorization Act of 2005.
It's "politically correct" but Hillary's wrong on national security.
You don't politicize foreign policy. You don't maniplate homeland security to suit your political ambitions.
John Spencer stated very clearly where he stands.
Hillary plays politics with our safety -- and she would leave us vulnerable.
We can't let Senator Clinton ascend any further. It's up to us to stop her.
Spencer For U.S. Senate needs your donations, now.
America needs your donations now.
We must stop this pandering to the left, Cinton's betrayal of necessary measures to keep us safe.
We must stop those undermining of our safety.
It's a war, sadly not one ending anytime soon. It's a war where we must be prepared and responsible.
It's not a war where anyone can play politics with our security. That's not what a U.S. Senator is supposed to do on the floor of Senate -- or in the court of public opinion. We need to send a message to Senator Clinton and the rest of those who put politics before our secuirity.
Please support the Spencer campaign to expose Senator Clinton's effort now.

One day after Senator Clinton tossed Joe Lieberman over the side against Ned Lamont, we got a chilling reminder of why we're fighting the war on terror. The United States cannot withdraw from the world and hide. Clinton's sitting on the fence in a time of crisis.
Clinton plays politics to "anti-war" left-wing extremism -- and hasn't been a leader on national security. Her endgame is running for the White House in 2008, not focusing on the job of being U.S. Senator for all Americans.
Senator Clinton has let down the people of New York.
John Spencer has pledged, "I won't play politics with our security."
"IT'S A WAR" were the words The New York Post used last week to describe the detection of a terrorist plot to destroy American airliners headed for New York.
John Spencer knows that The Patriot Act and NSA programs are necessary to keep Americans safe from terrorist threats.
Last week again proved the necessity of those precautions, a harrowing reminder that violent terrorist threats do exist --- AND that they must be countered with heightened U.S. intelligence efforts.
The President's terrorism adviser Fran Townsend told Larry Kudlow of CNBC that she credits the Patriot Act and National Security Agency wiretapping with helping uncover the plot (CNBC, 8/10).
Senator Clinton has continued to consistently oppose National Security Agency wiretapping:
But after vigorous criticism by John Spencer, Senator Clinton flip flopped to vote for a watered down version.
John Spencer commented on Clinton's continues hypocrisies.
Hillary Clinton does play politics with national security, the worst kind, to improve her presidential fortunes rather than protecting the people of New York.
