The columns highlighted below won’t appear on CNN, CBS, or NBC as they attempt to manipulate the American voter for elections being held on November 7. These propaganda artists spin their yarn, creating and imagining conspiracy theories with elaborate plotlines, yet when their stories unravel, the drive-by media never bothers to set the record straight.
The new day on Today began on Wednesday with Meredith Vierra in for Katie, and by this morning, they had Kelly O’Donnell on from the White House morphing the entire congressional election into a referendum on George Bush. These screeching liberals are replaying their dearest hopes from 2002, 2002, and 2004. It seems like the new day on Today means taking a page or two from the hey-day of Pravda.
I am afraid that the highly cultivated view of the war in Iraq thrust on the American people by the media, Jack Murtha, and all the remaining mouth pieces of the latest liberal creed will carry disproportionate value in the Fall voting. The media has tried to make us believe this before in 1980, 1988, 2000, 2002, and 2004. Promote the truth about our national security situation.
Robert Novak has a lot to say about the “leak scandal” that has captivated the liberal media for the last three years. Speaking of the mainstreamers, they haven’t said much since the truth came out. Maybe they have become such exquisite writers of fiction that they can peddle their convoluted plot to a Broadway Producer.
An accurate depiction of what Armitage actually said deepens the irony of him being my source. He was a foremost internal skeptic of the administration’s war policy, and I long had opposed military intervention in Iraq. Zealous foes of George W. Bush transformed me improbably into the president’s lapdog. But they cannot fit Armitage into the left-wing fantasy of a well-crafted White House conspiracy to destroy Joe and Valerie Wilson. The news that he and not Karl Rove was the leaker was devastating news for the Left.
Late in my hour-long interview with Armitage, I asked why the CIA had sent Wilson — lacking intelligence experience, nuclear policy or recent contact with Niger — on the African mission. He told the Washington Post last week that his answer was: “I don’t know, but I think his wife worked out there.”
Neither of us took notes, and nobody else was present. But I recalled our conversation that week in writing a column, while Armitage reconstructed it months later for federal prosecutors. He had told me unequivocally that Mrs. Wilson worked in the CIA’s Counter-Proliferation Division and that she had suggested her husband’s mission. As for his current implications that he never expected this to be published, he noted that the story of Mrs. Wilson’s role fit the style of the old Evans-Novak column — implying to me it continued reporting Washington inside information.
Michael Barone takes on Clown Wilson and his elaborate fiction made for an elitist political play in the inner sanctum of liberal expression. Remember Wilson saying that he “wanted Karl Rove frog marched in front of the White House.” It seems that Mr. Wilson should be doing a little marching of his own: right out to “Happy Times:” the local ward for the mentality unbalanced.
This was supposedly done to discredit Wilson’s July 2003 New York Times article, in which he said he had debunked George W. Bush’s claim that Iraq was trying to obtain uranium in Africa. The Wilson claim helped to embed the “Bush lied, people died” theme in public discourse.
It has long since come out that just about everything Wilson said was false. He was not, as he suggested, sent on his mission to Niger by Dick Cheney. He was recommended for the trip, contrary to his denial, by his wife, CIA employee Valerie Plame. He reported to the CIA that an Iraqi official had come to Niger on a trade mission in 1999 — evidence that tended to confirm rather than refute the British intelligence claim that Iraq was uranium-shopping in Africa — a claim that Britain’s Lord Butler judged “well founded.
Michelle Malkin hits the nail when it comes to the American Left and their views this week:
Let me sum up in two words how the unhinged Left copes with the threat of global jihad: “Kill Bush!”
On the fifth anniversary week of the September 11 attacks, the anger of entertainment industry liberals and anti-war zealots is directed not at Islamic terrorists telling us to convert or die. Not at American al Qaeda operative Adam Gadahn smirking at our country’s pain and praising the throat-slitting, children-incinerating hijackers as “strong-willed men.”
No, their thoughts are not focused on killing jihadists. Their dreams lie with killing George W. Bush. The mainstreaming of presidential assassination chic is on.
In her new book, “Peace Mom,” Cindy Sheehan confesses on page 29 that she has imagined going back in time and killing the infant George W. Bush in order to prevent the Iraq War. It’s the moonbat version of pre-emption. Sheehan admits she has entertained this infanticidal fantasy “often.” That ice-cream-and-coffee hunger strike is getting to her head.
