GET TOUGH ON TERRORISTS

CLINTON MUST EXPLAIN VOTE AGAINST MILITARY TRIALS

John Spencer, the Republican-Conservative candidate for U.S. Senate, today called on Senator Hillary Clinton to explain why she “voted against justice being served on those who wage war on America.”

Spencer was referring to an amendment (Senate Amendment 5086) that would have gutted legislation allowing military trials for terrorists like 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

John Spencer said; “Yesterday, Senator Clinton voted against justice being served on those who wage war on America and quite frankly, I’m shocked. The amendment she voted for yesterday would have gutted the legislation that would allow military trials for blood thirsty terrorists; Terrorists, whose only goal is to murder Americans, whenever and wherever they can. I’m talking about individuals like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. who masterminded the attacks on 9/11 and who, according to Pakistani President Musharraf, personally beheaded Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl. Senator Clinton needs to be held accountable for this vote and she should explain why she is intent on treating cold blooded murders with kid gloves. Her actions amaze me, as I’m sure they amaze the loved ones of those who perished on 9/11.”

Dick Morris Makes Clinton Prediction in Blogger Conference Call

One Jerusalem today organized a blogger conference call with noted political strategist Dick Morris.



Mr. Morris is best known as a central strategist in Bill Clinton's re-election campaign for President of the United States.

Last week, Mr. Morris and Eileen McGann published a critical article about the Clinton's that the Main Stream Media largely ignored. Entitled "Emir's A Gusher for Bill and Hillary" the op-ed charges that Bill Clinton and those in the inner circle of both Clintons have enjoyed large financial benefits from Clinton's relationship with Sheik Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum. This story involves the controversial Dubai ports deal.

Since publication of this largely ignored column the news media has been hotly debating President Clinton's handling of the hunt for Osama bin Laden. Did he do enough or didn't he? Did Senator Clinton know that her campaign consultants were on the payroll of the Sheik?

In its continuing effort to bring to the blogosphere information that the Main Stream Media downplays or ignores One Jerusalem took the opportunity to have one of the most astute Clinton watchers give his perspective.

Dick Morris came out of the corner swinging...

Dick Morris first talked about a Latest Clinton Scandal... the "Sheik Shakedown" Scandal!

Bill and Hillary Clinton's connection between the emir of Dubai, Sheik Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, seems ever more intimate. There is no six degrees of separation here! And, just how is Clinton being compensated for helping the Sheik?

* We don't know.
* There is a substantial basis for believing that it is a very large sum.
* The flip side is that there is a political side to this involving Sheik Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
* The emir is not a great guy. He is cited in a Miami court case for camel jockeying- child camel riders, a very dangerous profession especially for children.
The political reputations of the Clintons are linked to this story.

This was touched on briefly in the spring.

More on the Clintons and the November Election:

* Clinton was a dismal failure in fighting terrorism.

Dick Morris told Bill Clinton that his legacy would include how he dealt with the terrorism. He failed!

Hillary is a European liberal and believes that they have a system that we need.
Was Clinton deliberate in his interview? 9-11 Report (and the conservative blogs) contradicts everything that the Clinton's said during his FOX interview.

There is nothing Bill does that is out of control. His rages are the ultimate form of control. The closer you get to the truth the more vociferous he is with his indignation. Once the issue was raised about how he fought terrorism, he thought he had to unload. September is always his month. Not this year. Bill stepped on his story and brought attention to the Clinton years. This was a mistake. Ask Bill about something that hits close to home and he rages.

Sandy Berger was trying to take documents with hand written notes that would implicate the Clintons. This essentially knocked him out of the race for the Secretary of State. He was covering for the Clintons and actually destroyed some of the documents that he stole.

Dick writes columns for The Hill and the New York Post.

Clinton threatened the media last week in an interview on Thursday morning about getting too close.

Gore would be the only one to beat Hillary next year in the primaries. He won't.

When Hillary wins the democratic primary she has a very good chance of winning the national election.
The under-represented single women will come out in droves to vote for her.

Kerry had 9 million new voters.
With Hillary in the race, there will be a huge increase in voter turnout. Blacks and Hispanics adore the Clintons.

Q: Why did Sandy Berger only got a wrist slap?
Morris: Bush helped the Clintons.
Bush pardoned the Clintons and their people.
Bush linked Bill Clinton to his father, Bush Sr., in Katrina and the tsunami relief and this elevated Bill tremendously.
Laura Bush just last week spoke at the Clinton Summit.
The Bushes did more to elevate the Clintons than anyone.

Midterms?
The country wants to vote democrat. The country feels protected. The issues that remain lean toward the democrats. The scandals are horrific and the attempts to reform miniscule. Most people do approve of Patriot Act and wiretapping.

Bush every single day has to push the terror issue. It is very hard to make prediction at this point. Today 3-4 Republican and some house seats would be lost but this will change and slant towards the democrats in the month of October.

Next week One Jerusalem will have an expert on the Middle East and International Terrorism talk about the Bangladeshi journalist who is on trial for blasphemy and faces the death sentence.

Among the bloggers on the call: Banagor from Broadsword, Don from Liberally Conservative, Jerry Gordon from Israpundit, Pamela from Atlas Shrugs, Anne Lieberman from Boker Tov Boulder, Michael Illions and Hank Butehorn from Conservatives with Attitude, Omri from Mere Rhetoric, Jim Hoft from Gateway Pundit, Kim Priestap from Wizbang, and Chad from GDLL.

One Jerusalem has audio posted from the call.
View Article  Dick Morris calls Senator Clinton a "European Socialist"

Word has spread about a blogger's conference call held yesterday with Dick Morris that was hosted Allen Roth of The One Jerusalem Blog.

Among the bloggers on the call:  Banagor from Broadsword, Don from Liberally Conservative, Jerry Gordon from Israpundit, Pamela from Atlas Shrugs, Anne Lieberman from Boker Tov Boulder, Michael Illions and Hank Butehorn from Conservatives with Attitude, Omri from Mere Rhetoric, Jim Hoft from Gateway Pundit, Kim Priestap from Wizbang, and Chad from GDLL.

"Last week, Mr. Morris and Eileen McGann published a critical article about the Clinton's that the Main Stream Media largely ignored.

This story involves the controversial Dubai ports deal."

In addition to predicting that the Clinton couple's financial dalliance with the emir of Dubai would be "the scandal of '08" when Hillary Clinton runs for president, Morris called Senator Clinton a "European socialist" and warned that she was "Nixonian" in her ambitions.

Kim Priestap of Whizbang took note of how Bill Clinton's outburst last Sunday might draw attention away from Hillary:

"I asked Dick how Bill's outburst on Fox News Sunday could actually help the Dems when the interview did one thing: focus everyone's attention on Bill Clinton rather than on issues that actually help the Dems. After all, when Bill Clinton takes center stage, it's all Bill Clinton, all the time, and he sucks everything away from the Dems - it's cannibalistic in a way. Dick agreed and said that Bill Clinton's interview will hurt the Democrats for a variety of reasons. First, the interview brings attention back to terrorism, which is always bad for Democrats. Second, it also brings attention to Bill's temperament. Finally, it sucks all the attention away from Hillary, so now the question is how is Bill going to help get the attention back to her?"

The New York Post reported that John Spencer observed how Senator Clinton and her husband were now resorting to theatrics.

"This act is getting old and the American people realize it. The time has come to stop the theatrics."

Pamela at Atlast Shrugs agreed that Bill Clinton's outburst was calculated.

Today on ABC News— - Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich believes former President Clinton's blow up during an interview on "Fox News Sunday" -- and the escalating war of words over whether he or President Bush mishandled opportunities to catch or kill Osama bin Laden before the Sept. 11 attacks -- was premeditated to shore up support for Democrats ahead of the November midterm elections.

"I think that as the most experienced professional in the Democratic Party, he didn't walk onto that set and suddenly get upset," Gingrich said. "He probably decided in advance he was going to pick a fight with Chris Wallace."

This, Gingrich said, may have been a good strategy.

"I think as a calculated political decision, it's reasonably smart," he said.

SPENCER: MORE HELP NEEDED TO BATTLE METH

PLEDGES TO FIGHT FOR MORE FEDERAL AID FOR NY STATE

"One sees the obvious need for increased federal support for law enforcement,

first responders and the Haz-Mat crews that deal with lab and dump sites."


 

At a morning news conference in Bath, NY, John Spencer, the Republican and Conservative candidate for U.S. Senate, called for increased federal aid in the battle against “Meth Labs” in New York’s Southern Tier.

Joining Mayor Spencer at the news conference, which took place in front of the County Jail, were Steuben County District Attorney John Tunney and Sheriff Richard Tweddell.

“I came to Steuben County today to call for increased federal assistance in the war on Methamphetamines and in particular assistance in helping states and local governments deal with the problems created by “meth labs’ and “dump sites’ located within their boundaries," said Spencer.

Spencer noted that crystal meth is a drug that creates a wide range of challenges in the communities where it is a problem.

"The problems it creates go far beyond the typical incidents of increased crime and decreased quality of life associated with most drugs," explained Spencer. "Meth, directly and indirectly, threatens the health and well being of family members, neighbors, first responders, and the environment every time a lab or dump site is discovered. It is a drug that is highly addictive, fairly easy to manufacture and relatively inexpensive.  But its biggest threat lies in its volatility during production and the toxic by-products it creates; every pound produced in a lab creates 5 pounds of toxic waste. This waste is almost always dumped indiscriminately into to the environment and an active lab is constantly at risk of exploding.” 

The most recent report issued by the DEA (2005) shows an increase in use and manufacture of methamphetamines in 3 regions of the country. New York State falls into two of those regions; the Great Lakes and the Northeast. And while use has stabilized in the New York City metro area, it has increased in rural upstate areas. Seizures of labs or dump sites in the state rose from 2 in the year 2000 to 20 in 2005.

 

The increase in states to our south and west were even greater and presents a disturbing trend. When local law enforcement (nationwide) was asked which drug was viewed as posing the greatest threat 39.2% said Methamphetamines, with 4 drug types dividing the remaining 60.8%.

Spencer continued:

“Meth labs clustered in the vicinity of state borders present unique problems for law enforcement. Couple that with the rural nature of this region on both the Pennsylvania and New York sides of the border and one sees the obvious need for increased federal support for law enforcement, first responders and the Haz-Mat crews that deal with lab and dump sites. As Senator, I’ll fight to see that New York receives its fair share of federal support.”
