Bush Scoreboard 2nd Term

Thank you!

BUSH SCORECARD TOP 25

These are the 25 most appalling of over 100 liberal and ungodly things George W. Bush has done just between the election and the inauguration (which was 78 days).

All of them can be found at Bush Scorecard:
http://bushscorecard.blogspot.com/

I will continue to update the Scorecard, but at a much slower rate after the inauguration, only hitting the most egregious violations. I don't have time to keep this up at this pace for four years. I believe I've proven my point 100 times over that Bush is no conservative and no better than Kerry would've been.

As liberal as John Kerry is, he'd have to give up sleeping to keep up with Bush so far. If you voted for Bush - YOU GOT KERRY anyway! - at least Kerry's policies: Pro-abortion, pro-sodomite, pro-Muslim, pro-illegal alien, pro-infringements on our rights, pro-gun control, anti-Christianity.

Bush is wasting no time in betraying the "moral" contingent that he admits put him into office. He USED the faithful Bush-bots to get their votes and now they're not needed any more so he is openly discarding them like trash. But his supporters are undaunted in their admiration. It seems like these Bush-bots actually LIKE getting stabbed in the back. At least a cheap whore gets paid for her services, the Bush-bots got used and they will end up paying as well.

And we thought Bill Clinton was "Slick". He was an amateur compared to Bush.

1. Arlen Specter positioned to block conservative judges.

(http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=41378)

Bush campaigned for pro-abort, pro-queer Specter, helping him to a 1% win over conservative Republican Pat Toomey. Now Specter promises to block conservative judges, and the evidence shows Bush knew that's what he was getting.

2. Bush push to reward Illegal Aliens for being lawbreakers.

(http://www.washtimes.com/national/20041110-123424-5467r.htm)

President Bush yesterday moved aggressively to resurrect his plan to relax rules against illegal immigration, a move bound to anger conservatives just days after they helped re-elect him.

3. Bush names Pro-abort Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.

www.covenantnews.com/politics/www.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=542&u=/ap/20041110/ap_on_go_ca_st_pe/bush_cabinet_23&printer=1

Besides being pro-abortion, Gonzales cast the deciding vote denying parental consent when minor daughters have abortions.Gonzales wrote a controversial February 2002 memo in which Bush claimed the right to waive anti-torture law. He is also an advocate of illegal alien benefits.

4. Bush vows to create a Palestinian state(by taking land from Israel).

(http://www.cnn.com/2004/ALLPOLITICS/11/12/bush.blair/index.html)

Many Christians believe this violates the promise to Abraham in Gen. 12, and it certainly is an unconstitutional act of interference with a sovereign nation (but that's the 'in' thing with Bush, see Iraq.)

5. Bush push to renew Patriot Act intrusions into our rights.

http://www.hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/S/
SECOND_TERM_LAW_ENFORCEMENT?SITE=MTBILELN&SECTION=POLITICS&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT

Surveillance, information, wiretaps, banking records, "Sneak & Peek" , no-knock warrants where the owner is not informed. If accused, no speedy trial, no counsel, no appeal, no evidence, and worst of all, no presumption of innocence.The UN version (ICC) lets them determine who they perceive is a threat, and no one (or nation) can appeal.

6. Bush adds three more sodomites to his administration (from six to nine).

(http://www.bluelemur.com/index.php?p=426)

(
http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/c/a/2002/12/29/MN184289.DTL)

One of them was his ‘04 campaign manager. Yes, Bush’s campaign was RUN by a queer.

7. Bush persecutes pro-lifers.

http://www.covenantnews.com/abortion/

http://www.covenantnews.com/abortion/archives/008263.html

Bush supports the FACE Act which prevents pro-lifers from protesting near abortion chambers. Pro-abortionists however, can protest anywhere they want, even right at the abortuaries.

8. Bush supports queers in military.

http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=41741

Even with AIDS and STDs rising again, Bush supports the current policy of allowing sodomites into the military.

9. Bush fund$ terrorists!

http://www.reuters.com/newsArticle.jhtml?type=topNews&storyID=7029964

Foreign aid is unconstitutional as it is. Aid to our enemies is stupid and suicidal. But here Bush is giving our tax money to a TERRORIST organization - while we are supposedly fighting a war against terror!

10. Bush administration betrays Gulf War POWs.

http://www.thenewamerican.com/

12-13-04 p. 8 Our government has betrayed our POWs from previous wars, why should this one be any different? The Bush administration intervened in court on the side of Saddam Hussein and Iraq to erase the POW's judgment from the books.

11. No Christ in Bush Christmas.

http://www.covenantnews.com/newswire/archives/008760.html

http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=42027

Oops! A minor oversight by our Christian President. He remembered Santa, Rudolph, Hanukkah, the Menorah, and even Kwanzaa - but forgot Jesus Christ!

12. No Cross for Bush - but a Moon.

http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=42039

"Brother" Bush is joining arms with those who believe Sun Myung Moon is the real Messiah who came to finish what Jesus failed to accomplish. He must be getting bored with lauding Allah. They threw crosses in a dumpster to prove their point, but the crosses are not the issue, honoring Moon is. This is simply blasphemy on the part of Bush. I'm glad I didn't vote for this wickedness.

13. Queers love Georgie boy.

http://www.thenewamerican.com/artman/publish/article_19.shtml

One of the last places of refuge for Bush-bots is to claim that the sodomite lobby despises him. The 12-21-04 issue of the leading "gay rights" journal, the Advocate, puts the lie to that claim. The queers love and appreciate the man who has furthered their agenda more than anyone to ever sit in the Oval Office.

14. Non-terrorist charged under Patriot Act.

http://www.apnews.myway.com/article/20050105/D87DUR3O0.html

The guy might have committed an infraction, but he is not a terrorist and he is an American citizen and should be dealt with by normal American law, not some ostensively anti-terror act. That was not supposed to be the purpose of anti-terror legislation. What are they going to take first under the guise of preventing terror, my Bible, my guns, my cardboard cutters, or my laser pointers?

15. Inauguration to be porn exhibit by "Bush babes".

Now we know what W was conferring with Slick about - he was getting advice on how to make his daughters look like expensive sluts for the coronation ball. Fortunately these depictions of their inaugural gowns are drawings, so you won't have to expose yourself to actual pornography if you check these links, but if you watch the coronation inauguration, with Jenna and Barbara actually wearing these things, you will get more than an eyeful. What a shame a 'Christian' president will have his daughters dressing like whores, wearing backless gowns with the fronts low-cut almost to the belly button.

The gowns are reminiscent of the splash made by "J-Lo" a few years ago with her low-cut gown. Perhaps we could call Jenna "J-Ho", and I guess Barbara is "B-Lo".

Ps 101:3 I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes:

16. Bush tabs Clinton keeper for Homeland Security.

When Bernard Kerik withdrew as the choice for Homeland Czar over scandals, from another "Nannygate" to sexual impropriety, I was reminded of Janet Reno, who stepped into her office "under the radar" because of a similar situation. I'm convinced that Reno was Clinton's original 'man' for the job, but she would've been harder to get confirmed if other candidates hadn't pulled out. I told people to watch out, the replacement will be the guy Bush really wants, but he would have some baggage that would've hindered him, but now he'll be approved easily.

How's this for "baggage" on Mr. Chertoff?

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6813011/

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6812230/

Bill Clinton fired all the U.S. attorneys … except one: New Jersey U.S. Attorney Michael Chertof ... even Democrats applauded. … “Chertoff has the resume to be an excellent H.S. Sec.,” said Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y.

TG: The most liberal of Democrats love Chertoff. How can that be if he is a genuine conservative?A Harvard grad, Chertoff played a central role in the nation’s response to the 9-11 attacks.

... [and] in the U.S. Patriot Act ...

TG: So he's already taken a central role in assailing the freedoms of Americans without doing anything to thwart terrorists? Well, he fits right in with the Bush administration.

Chertoff played a major role in the investigation of the Clintons’ Arkansas business dealings; the suicide of Vincent Foster, a Clinton aide and former law partner of Hillary Clinton; and other allegations against the Clintons.

TG: The Clintons skated and Foster's death was never solved. Chertoff must be quite adept at sweeping things under the rug. No wonder he had problems with his nanny. He’ll perform admirably as the Homeland Czar. The KGB and Gestapo will be so envious.

17. Bush claims faith is not under attack.

http://www.washingtontimes.com/national/20050111-101004-3771r.htm

Bush said … he does not think that faith is under attack by culture at large ...

Presidents must get the best mind-altering drugs on the black market! Someone tell this idiot about Judge Roy Moore, General Boykins, Indianapolis Baptist Temple, and the Philly Five (among many other examples)!

18. Pilots not considered "in combat".

http://www.washtimes.com/national/20050111-101005-5277r.html

Somewhere a comedian is struggling to make ends meet who would be better as President, because our President could sure make it as a comedian. In order to meet the requirement that women are still not officially allowed into combat, Bush has redefined combat to exclude pilots. That is a kick in the manhood of every war pilot in history. Perhaps Bush doesn't believe pilots are actually combatants because he's judging by HIS OWN experience as a military pilot.

19. Bush's faith-based initiative exposed.

http://www.story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/ap/20050115/ap_on_re_us/faith_based_lawsuit.htm

An Arizona church was disqualified for faith-based funds because they were "injecting religion" into the program, including encouraging people to witness their faith, read the scriptures, and attend church services. Excuse me, but isn't that what a church is SUPPOSED to do? Federal funding always comes with federal control, and this program is simply an attempt to secularize and neuter churches, bring them under control of the government, and keep them from serving God.

A Christian with the spiritual discernment of Mr. Potato Head could see the devil in that with his eyes closed.

20. Bush best buddy admits W not conservative.

Newsmax.com Insider Report: After 75 examples in 75 days now his own best friend confirms it with point #75. Bush is NOT a conservative, even on the homosexual agenda. Who would ever think Bush wouldn't be as conservative as his image? Why I'm so surprised you could knock me over with a feather!

· Asked about President Bush's views on gay marriage, Betts declined to comment. He did add, "I don't think he's as conservative a person as the media generally characterizes him as."

21. Sissy Bush drops queer-marriage amendment.

http://www.covenantnews.com/newswire/archives/009269.html

http://www.kentucky.com/mld/kentucky/news/nation/10657618.htm

http://www.365gay.com/newscon05/01/011605bush.htm

This one should count at least double. The last refuge for Bush-bots was to parrot, "At least he wants to ban same-sex marriages!" NOT ANYMORE! He got your vote, now he doesn't even have to pretend to be conservative. He can stab you in the back and hit you below the belt.

John Kerry never pulled a flip-flop of this magnitude.

To be honest, a Federal amendment was dangerous anyway, as it would give the fedgov authority over marriage, but it was Bush's effort to appear pro-family, now he doesn't even have that appearance.

22. Bush supports over-the-counter abortions.

http://www.covenantnews.com/newswire/archives/009271.html

http://www.thestate.com/mld/thestate/10660891.htm

Can any sane Christian conservative still support this wicked man? Now he's advocating making the "morning after" abortifacient pill as available as aspirin. More babies will be killed by this convenient pill than by all other methods combined, but some of you will still insist Bush is pro-life. Items #21 and #22 should convince the most loyal, worshipful Bush-bot, that their hero is a FRAUD (like I told them years ago) and unworthy of the support of any Christian. But many will remain true to their beloved Sun Myung Bush, no matter what the facts are.

23. Gonzales joins W in aim to ban semi-autos.

http://www.chron.com/cs/CDA/ssistory.mpl/nation/2997962

Now the president and his attorney general both support banning semi-automatic weapons, despite the fact that such arms are a Constitutional right. Do you think four more years of Bush will give us more or less gun rights? More or less homosexual agenda? More or less illegal aliens? More or less abortion? Okay, so exactly what is conservative about Bush?

24. Log Cabin queers share key agenda with GWB.

http://www.cnsnews.com//ViewPolitics.asp?Page=\Politics\archive\200501\POL20050119b.html

Once again, even though they sometimes have to pretend to be opposed to the alleged conservatism of George Bush, the Republican sodomites know an ally when they see one. The sodomites know Bush is not conservative in this agenda (#31), his best friend knows he's not conservative on homosexual agenda (#75) - only willfully ignorant Christians refuse to acknowledge the truth.

25. Inauguration security by terrorists?

http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=42454

I couldn't make stuff up that would be as far out as things really are. The justification for the extravagant expenditures for the upcoming coronation was the threat of terror (which should be under control with all the anti-terror laws that have been passed). Now it turns out that part of the security will involve two terrorist organizations - including the group that ordered an assassination of Bush when he visited Columbia!


BUSH SODOMITE SCORECARD

After abortion, the moral issue most important to Christians is the abomination of sodomy. President Bush claims to be pro-family and against homosexuality, but again, his actions betray his smooth words. GWB has named more homosexuals to government positions than all previous presidents combined.

His predecessor, Bill Clinton, named one to his original staff. He tried to name another and Congress rejected him. The same Congress, Republican controlled, “rubber stamps” as many queer nominees as Bush wants to name.

His first campaign was managed by Mary Matalin, who told a Philadelphia reception for GOP homosexuals, "We are here to honor gay and lesbian Republicans ... To be a REAL CONSERVATIVE is to be PRO-GAY,"

His second campaign was led by purported sodomite Ken Mehlman. His Vice-President, Dick Cheney, has a lesbian daughter, who was prominent in the recent campaign, after being kept from the public view in 2000..

Here is the Bush record on homosexual issues:

These are only from the election to the inauguration.

1. Lesbian partner on stage.

(http://www.headlines.agapepress.org/archive/11/122004h.asp)

The day after George Bush and Dick Cheney were reelected. W allows his VP to not only put his lesbian daughter on the platform, but to bring her lesbian 'partner' up on the stage along with other 'spouses'. This was a spit in the eye of the conservative moral contingent of Americans who put Bush and Cheney into office. What a way to start his second term!

2. Arlen Specter positioned to block conservative judges.

http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=41378

Bush campaigned for pro-abort, pro-queer Specter, helping him to a 1% win over conservative Republican Pat Toomey. Now Specter promises to block conservative judges, and the evidence shows Bush knew that's what he was getting.

3. Bush adds three more sodomites to his administration (from six to nine).

http://www.bluelemur.com/index.php?p=426

http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/c/a/2002/12/29/MN184289.DTL

One of them was his ‘04 campaign manager. Yes, Bush’s campaign was RUN by a queer.

4. Bush supports queers in military.

http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=41741

Even with AIDS and STDs rising again, Bush supports the current policy of allowing sodomites into the military.

5. Bush hosts reception for queer rocker Elton John.

http://www.thisislondon.com/showbiz/articles/15128792?source=Evening%20Standard&ct=5

Why not honor a sodomite performer? He honored Ozzy Osbourne, the drug-drenched leader of the occultist rock band Black Sabbath during his first term. Maybe he can have them both play at his coronation/inauguration.

6. Queers love Georgie boy.

http://www.thenewamerican.com/artman/publish/article_19.shtml

One of the last places of refuge for Bush-bots is to claim that the sodomite lobby despises him. The 12-21-04 issue of the leading "gay rights" journal, the Advocate, puts the lie to that claim. The queers love and appreciate the man who has furthered their agenda more than anyone to ever sit in the Oval Office.

7. Bush best buddy admits W not conservative.

9. Bush media payoff is queer.

http://www.aboms.com/

http://www.queerday.com/archives/007472.html

Back in item #52 on the main Scorecard we learned about GWB paying off a media outlet to promote his unconstitutional education program. Well it turns out that the point man, Armstrong Williams, was accused by a *male* employee of sexual harassment, and Williams paid the guy off.

No wonder Bush was so eager to help. He was probably just generously helping the pansy pundit recoup his losses, payoff for payoff.

The suit said Armstrong “grabbed [Gregory’s] buttocks and penis, tried to kiss him, and climbed into his hotel-room bed …10. Log Cabin queers share key agenda with GWB.

10. Log Cabin queers share key agenda with GWB.

The sodomites know Bush is not conservative in this agenda (#31), his best friend knows he's not conservative on homosexual agenda (#75) - only willfully ignorant Christians refuse to acknowledge the truth.

BUSH ABORTION SCORECARD

Murder by abortion has long been one of the most serious issues to a Christian conservative. President Bush occasionally says things that make him seem to be pro-life. This list of the things he has supported and done indicates that his walk does not match his talk - he is NOT pro-life.

This Scorecard only documents President Bush’s behavior concerning abortion from the November 2004 election, up to the January 2005 inauguration.

Prior to then we know a few things already (and I have full documentation for each claim):· Bush is in favor of killing babies conceived by rape or incest.

· Bush has stated that America is not ready to overturn Roe vs. Wade (even though 30 states would overturn it).
· Bush has allowed more tax dollars to pay for abortions during his term than any previous president.
· Bush has nominated several pro-abortion candidates to a variety of offices.
· Bush approved the distribution of “morning after” pills, like RU-486, which actually perform abortions by preventing implantation.
· Bush is the first president to allow federal tax money (unconstitutionally) to pay for fetal stem-cell research on the already killed fetuses.
· Bush’s “Partial Birth Abortion Ban” did not ban any abortions. It reclassified partial-birth as infanticide, designated the navel as the acceptable killing line instead of the neck, and became the first law to ever consider the other kinds of abortion to be “legitimate” (Roe was a court ruling, not law).
· Christians no longer seem to consider the abortion of babies as a disqualifying issue. There was a time when a Christian would not vote for a candidate who supported abortion at all. That’s been reduced to which candidate says he'll kill less babies.

With those things in mind, here is the Bush Abortion Scorecard list of pro-abortion positions by Bush just since the ‘04 election:


1. Arlen Specter positioned to block conservative judges.

http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=41378

Bush campaigned for pro-abort, pro-queer Specter, helping him to a 1% win over conservative Republican Pat Toomey. Now Specter promises to block conservative judges, and the evidence shows Bush knew that's what he was getting.

2. Bush names Pro-abort Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.

http://www.covenantnews.com/politics/

http://www.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=542&u=/ap/20041110/ap_on_go_ca_st_pe/bush_cabinet_23&printer=1

Besides being pro-abortion, Gonzales cast the deciding vote denying parental consent when minor daughters have abortions. Gonzales wrote a controversial February 2002 memo in which Bush claimed the right to waive anti-torture law. He is also an advocate of illegal alien benefits. In 1996 as Bush’s general counsel, Gonzo got the then Texas Governor out of jury duty which kept him from having to disclose his 1976 arrest for drunk driving.

3. Bush replaces pro-abort Powell with pro-abort Rice as Sec. of State.

http://www.covenantnews.com/abortion/archives/008028.html

And calls this liberal, pro-abortion, black woman "the face of America". She wanted to be Sec. of Defense. She already stabbed Israel in the back in the Bandar situation.

4. Bush persecutes pro-lifers.

http://www.covenantnews.com/abortion/

http://www.covenantnews.com/abortion/archives/008263.html

Bush supports the FACE Act which prevents pro-lifers from protesting near abortion chambers. Pro-abortionists however, can protest anywhere they want, even right at the abortuaries.

5. Bush signs unconstitutional budget, with abortion regulation.

http://www.covenantnews.com/newswire/archives/008786.html

In a typical example of submitting to "the lesser of evils", President Bush signed the unconstitutional omnibus Federal health budget. It contains many unconstitutional expenditures, and options for abortion services. Of course it could have been even MORE unconstitutional and even more permissive on abortion, so that somehow makes this bill acceptable to compromisers.

6. Bush Nominates Backstabber to U.S. Court.

http://www.covenantnews.com/freedom/

http://www.montgomeryadvertiser.com/NEWSV5/storyV5NUPRYOR24W.htm

http://www.spofga.org/ten_commandments/2004/oct/bill_pryor.phtml

Recently, Bush named Bill Pryor to finish a term, now he's making him the permanent justice. Pryor is the judge in Alabama who ran Roy Moore out of office over the Ten Commandment monument. Pryor has also supported such liberal things as abortion and gambling in previous rulings. Wasn't one of the main things the Bush-bots cried about was the importance of judicial nominees?

7. Bush stonewalling on Gonzales.

http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=10000103&sid=aZKEt_nX7im0&refer=us

With Gonzales' record of supporting torture and eliminating Constitutional protections (not to mention being pro-abortion), it's no surprise that a wicked man would want to hide his record (which says just what about GWB?). Why, Gonzales might want to apply the Patriot Act to non-terrorist Americans!

8. Bush push to shackle churches using faith-based funds.

http://www.apnews.myway.com/article/20050103/D87CS0J81.html

Anything the government funds, the government controls. This faith-based idea of "Brother" Bush is nothing but a scam to bring more churches under the thumb of Big-Brother. This aid comes with strings (chains) attached preventing a church from witnessing to the benefactors. Yes, "Brother" Bush's plan will prevent Christians from testifying for Christ or protesting abortion or the homosexual agenda.

9. Women warriors.

http://www.bible-researcher.com/women/getpreg.html

Bush policies have encouraged women to get pregnant to avoid being sent to Iraq - but the military is catching on and sending them anyway, right after the child is born. This will have the chillingly perverse effect of giving female soldiers more incentive to have abortions.

10. Bush supports over-the-counter abortions.

http://www.covenantnews.com/newswire/archives/009271.html

http://www.thestate.com/mld/thestate/10660891.htm

Can any sane Christian conservative still support this wicked man? Now he's advocating making the "morning after" abortifacient pill as available as aspirin.

More babies will be killed by this convenient pill than by all other methods combined, but some of you will still insist Bush is pro-life.

This item should convince the most loyal, worshipful Bush-bot, that their hero is a FRAUD (like I told them years ago) and unworthy of the support of any Christian. But many will remain true to their beloved Sun Myung Bush, no matter what the facts are.

11. Another pro-abort for GOP chair.

http://www.nytimes.com/2005/01/14/politics/14conserv.html

Ken Mehlmen is the reported sodomite who ran Bush's election campaign and was rewarded with the chairmanship of the GOP. To compliment the homosexualization of the Bush administration, Mehlmen named key Republican abortion advocate, Joann Davidson, to be his co-chair.

Did you expect (Big) Brother Bush to surround himself with conservative Christians?


BUSH CHRISTIAN SCORECARD

Many of George W. Bush’s positions have relevance to his professed Christianity, but I’ve stuck with the ones that are directly relevant. His positions on abortion and the sodomite agenda are included on their own Scorecards. Remember, these are just between the election and the inauguration.

1. Bush insinuates that Yasser Arafat is going to heaven.

(http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=41360)

Admittedly this is an assumption, but when Bush's spokesman was asked twice if this meant Bush was a Universalist (all religions lead to heaven), the spokesman refuse to answer despite Bush's own clear words affirming Universalist doctrine (aolsvc.news.aol.com/elections/article.adp?id=20041026095909990008). It is clear that Bush believes Muslims are going to heaven.

2. Bush vows to create a Palestinian state (by taking land from Israel).

(http://www.cnn.com/2004/ALLPOLITICS/11/12/bush.blair/index.html)

Many Christians believe this violates the promise to Abraham in Gen 12, and it certainly is an unconstitutional act of interference with a sovereign nation (but that's the 'in' thing with Bush, see Iraq.)

3. Bush fund$ Muslim terrorists!

http://www.reuters.com/newsArticle.jhtml?type=topNews&storyID=7029964

Foreign aid is unconstitutional as it is. Aid to our enemies is stupid and suicidal. But here Bush is giving our tax money to an Islamic TERRORIST organization - while we are supposedly fighting a war against terror!

4. Bush to sign Muslim-partner law.

http://www.covenantnews.com/politics/

http://www.washtimes.com/upi-breaking/20041215-110705-3120r.htm

Washington, DC -- President George W. Bush is expected this week to sign into law a bill that officially binds Washington to engage into a long-term economic and political partnership with its key Muslim allies. The bill, called the Sept. 11th Recommendations Implementation Act, was passed by Congress last week, and with Bush's signature it will become a law. The Sept. 11 Act also suggests various proposals for improving America's image in the Islamic world and for helping its Muslim allies combat internal extremism.

5. Peace, peace, no peace.

http://www.news.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2004/12/20/wbush20.xml

http://www.debka.com/article.php?size=big&aid=952

Out of one side of his mouth, GWB assures us we'll have peace in the Middle East by the end of his term, but out of the other side of his mouth he causes discord with Israeli leader Ariel Sharon. Either Bush has been munching on those "magic" mushrooms, or he thinks he's the antichrist.

Oops! A minor oversight by our Christian President. He remembered Santa, Rudolph, Hanukkah, the Menorah, and even Kwanzaa - but forgot Jesus Christ!

7. No Cross for Bush - but a Moon.

"Brother" Bush is joining arms with those who believe Sun Myung Moon is the real Messiah who came to finish what Jesus failed to accomplish. He must be getting bored with lauding Allah. They threw crosses in a dumpster to prove their point, but the crosses are not the issue, honoring Moon is. This is simply blasphemy on the part of Bush. I'm glad I didn't vote for this wickedness.

GWB makes no mention of Jesus Christ in his Christmas address, which would surely offend many Christians. However he would never offend a Muslim or a radical black, so he'll remember Kwanzaa and Ramadan. BTW, what is an "African American"? Is there a country called Africa that we have some kind of dual citizenship agreement with?

Not too long ago Bush named Bill Pryor to finish a term, now he's making him the permanent candidate. Pryor is the judge in Alabama who ran Judge Roy Moore out of office over the Ten Commandment monument. Pryor has also supported such liberal things as abortion and gambling in previous rulings. Wasn't one of the main things the Bush-bots cried about was the importance of judicial nominees?

10. Bush push to shackle churches using faith-based funds.

http://www.apnews.myway.com/article/20050103/D87CS0J81.html

Anything the government funds, the government controls. This faith-based idea of "Brother" Bush is nothing but a scam to bring more churches under the thumb of Big-Brother. This aid comes with strings (chains) attached preventing a church from witnessing to the benefactors. "Brother" Bush's plan will prevent Christians from testifying for Christ.

11. No crosses at inauguration.

http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=42258

Again, crosses are symbols and I don't believe God is pleased with them anyway, but that's NOT why the Bush administration has now twice been anti-cross. It is another repudiation of anything thought to be Christian.

12. GWB invites Abbas to White House.

http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/525351.html

We've already seen that Abbas is every bit as radical as the late Yasser Arafat (http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=42304), but Bush will pretend he's 'more moderate' (a more moderate terrorist?). Abbas' consorting with the RCC is also quite 'interesting'. Remember, Arafat's wife, Suha, was Catholic. What strange bedfellows Islam and the RCC appear to be.

13. Inauguration to be porn exhibit by "Bush babes".

Now we know what W was conferring with Slick about in #55 - he was getting advice on how to make his daughters look like expensive sluts for the coronation ball. Fortunately these depictions of their inaugural gowns are drawings, so you won't have to expose yourself to actual pornography if you check these links, but if you watch the coronation inauguration, with Jenna and Barbara actually wearing these things, you will get more than an eyeful. What a shame a 'Christian' president will have his daughters dressing like whores, wearing backless gowns with the fronts low-cut almost to the belly button.

The gowns are reminiscent of the splash made by "J-Lo" a few years ago with her low-cut gown. Perhaps we could call Jenna "J-Ho", and I guess Barbara is "B-Lo".

Presidents must get the best mind-altering drugs on the black market! Someone tell this idiot about Judge Roy Moore, General Boykins, Indianapolis Baptist Temple, and the Philly Five (among many other examples)!

15. Bush's faith-based initiative exposed.

http://www.story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/ap/20050115/ap_on_re_us/faith_based_lawsuit

An Arizona church was disqualified for faith-based funds because they were "injecting religion" into the program, including encouraging people to witness their faith, read the scriptures, and attend church services. Excuse me, but isn't that what a church is SUPPOSED to do?

Federal funding always comes with federal control, and this program is simply an attempt to secularize and neuter churches, bring them under control of the government, and keep them from serving God.

A Christian with the spiritual discernment of Mr. Potato Head could see the devil in that with his eyes closed.

16. Inauguration security by Muslim terrorists?

http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=42454

I couldn't make stuff up that would be as far out as things really are. The justification for the extravagant expenditures for the upcoming coronation was the threat of terror (which should be under control with all the anti-terror laws that have been passed). Now it turns out that part of the security will involve two terrorist organizations - including the Islamic group that ordered an assassination of Bush when he visited Columbia!

17. Bush elevates Koran in Inaugural Address.

http://www.thetarpit.blogspot.com/2005/01/president-bush-takes-oath-on-bible.html

After being sworn in George W. Bush gave his Inaugural Address, which included the following:

That edifice of character is built in families, supported by communities with standards, and sustained in our national life by the truths of Sinai, the Sermon on the Mount, the words of the Koran, and the varied faiths of our people.

Of course the Bible and the Koran conflict greatly. They cannot both build the same kind of society. Notice that only two examples of the Bible are alluded to (and one of them is probably also in the Koran), but the WORDS of the Koran (assumedly ALL of them), and the varied FAITHS of OTHER people (non-Christians) are lauded. He is making it out that America was built by the Koran, other faiths, and just a sprinkling of Christianity.

18. Bush invokes New World Order in Inaugural.

http://www.thestate.com/mld/thestate/10691575.htm

When our Founders declared a new order of the ages; when soldiers died in wave upon wave for a union based on liberty; when citizens marched in peaceful outrage under the banner "Freedom Now" they were acting on an ancient hope that is meant to be fulfilled.

"A new order of the ages" is the translation of a motto on the reverse side of the Great Seal of the United States (http://www.greatseal.com) which can be seen on the back of the dollar bill, in Latin as, "Novus Ordo Seclorum", a synonym for "new world order", described as the government of the Antichrist in the book of Revelation in the Bible.

19. Homeland Czar defended bin-Laden.

This is the guy Bush tabbed to be in charge of Homeland security? A lawyer who has defended a terrorist financier who funded Islamic terrorist Osama bin Laden - the guy we are supposed to be fighting this war on terror against? Any Bush-bot who can't see what's going on now should be given up for dead (at least from the neck up).

20. Prayers to Allah for 2nd term.

During his first term, President Bush had Muslims pray to Allah in the White House. (Big) "Brother" Bush said he prayed to the same god that they did. He also said Muslims can go to heaven.

Though allegedly reading the Bible every day for the past four years, Bush proved that he hasn't learned even the basics by having Muslims and Jews offer prayers at his second inauguration.

Prayer service starts work of Bush's second term

Four days of celebrations surrounding Bush's inauguration culminated with a National Prayer Service on Friday, following a tradition set by the nation's first chief executive, George Washington.

Instrumental and choral music filled the church and an interfaith lineup of Christian, Jewish and Muslim clergy helped celebrate through prayer the events of the day before Bush's swearing-in at the Capitol.

TG: I seriously doubt that George Washington set a tradition of having pagans pray at his inauguration.

2 Cor 6:14-17 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

Ezek 44:23 ... teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.

Exod 20:2-3 I am the LORD thy God... Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

Bush has repeatedly confused Allah with the God of the Bible, says he worships and prays to the same god as Muslims (he even invited some to pray at the White House), believes non-Christians can go to heaven, has lauded the Pope, and worshipped at a Shinto shrine. If he is a Christian, he is not a very good one.

# 99 War costs astronomical.

The oil we got from conquering Iraq was supposed to pay for this war. Instead this has been the most expensive war EVER, and has added 15% to the federal budget.

Analysis: How Bush got Iraq war cost wrong

By Martin Sieff
UPI Senior News Analyst
January 26, 2005

WASHINGTON -- President George W. Bush is spending the political capital of his decisive re-election just as he said he would. But he is being forced to spend it where he least expected -- to fund the soaring, ongoing costs of the endless war in Iraq with no end in sight.

On Wednesday Bush took to the forum of a news conference, a format he clearly loathes and avoids more than any other president in modern U.S. history, to make the case for an additional $80 billion to fund the war over the next fiscal year alone. By the White House's own estimates, that will boost the soaring annual federal budget deficit for 2005 to $427 billion, the greatest in U.S. history.

It was not supposed to be this way. The liberation of Iraq was to have been the war that paid for itself in spades and gave U.S. corporations the inside track on the greatest energy bonanza of the 21st century. Instead, it has become a fiscal nightmare, a monetary Vietnam that already accounts for around 15 percent of the annual U.S. budget deficit, a figure likely to only grow remorselessly into the unforeseeable future.

One of the most comprehensive analyses of the war's costs was published in December by Anthony Cordesman of the Center for Strategic and International Studies. He projected the cost of the war to the end of 2004 at $128 billion plus unfunded future equipment replacement, upgrades and major maintenance of $5 billion to $10 billion. By the end of 2005, Cordesman concluded, that figure would soar to $212 billion to $232 billion, again without including equipment maintenance, upgrades and replacements. By the end of 2007, even assuming the war does not spread or get dramatically worse than it currently is, Cordesman projected its cost at $308 billion to $328 billion.

How did it get so bad? In financial terms it should have been a sure thing. The Energy Information Administration records that Iraq is believed to have the second-largest reserves of high-quality, easily accessible oil in the world -- more than 112 billion barrels.

In the run up to the 2003 U.S.-led conquest of Iraq to topple its dictator Saddam Hussein, conferences and studies commissioned by hawkish conservative think tanks in Washington debated and prepared models for privatization of the Iraqi oil industry with, of course, major U.S. participation.

A Heritage Foundation study by Ariel Cohen and Gerald O'Driscoll argued, "The Bush administration should provide leadership and guidance for the future Iraqi government ... (including) a massive, orderly and transparent privatization of state-owned enterprises, especially the restructuring and privatization of the oil sector." Commented John B. Judis in The New Republic on Jan. 20, 2003, "The study has been well-received by administration neo-conservatives."

Neo-conservative pundits with equal faith and fervor argued that Iraqi oil revenues would finance the country's own reconstruction after the war and that they could even be used to offset some U.S. military operating costs, surely a cheap price to pay for liberating the Iraqi people from Saddam's terrible yoke. But it hasn't worked out that way.

The cost of the war itself rapidly exceeded previous public projections from the office of the secretary of defense. At an April 16, 2004, news conference, then-Pentagon comptroller Dov Zakheim acknowledged that the cost of the war to that point came to $10 billion-$12 billion. But the cost of returning troops to base would be another $5 billion-$7 billion, plus another $9 billion for the 3 1/2 weeks of combat operations, bringing the total cost at that point to between $24 billion-$28 billion. Since then the continued cost of occupying Iraq and of the continued pacification and counter-guerrilla operations mounted there has been widely estimated at around $1 billion a week.

Combining these two figures -- the Pentagon's own admitted costs of the war and the generally accepted cost of occupation operations, the costofwar.com Web site has estimated the cost of the war for the fiscal year after it took place at $76 billion. Far from being a windfall to the U.S. economy, the Iraq war has already proven itself to be a ball and chain around the economy's neck.

What happened to the vast oil-production bonanza that was going to flow from Iraq? It hasn't happened, and quite possibly never will. No one doubts the oil is there. But what the war planners and energy strategists never factored into their considerations was that, far from welcoming the U.S. Army and Marines as their liberators, the Iraqis -- Sunni and Shiite alike -- might resent any continued U.S. military occupation and very quickly make it too hot to handle, which is exactly what has happened.

The Pentagon hawks and their favorite energy strategists also turned out to have no strategy for rebuilding Iraq or maintaining security in the oil fields and pipelines running from them.

First, they assumed an almost bloodless march to Baghdad instead of three weeks of high-speed and utterly successful, but still heavy, fighting. Collateral damage to oil facilities was considerably greater than anticipated.

Second, and far more important, the grand strategy, insofar as there was one, anticipated an orderly takeover of occupation duties by an undersized U.S. military force that could rapidly be half evacuated. This plan ignored the warnings of Army Chief of Staff Gen. Eric Shinseki that hundreds of thousands of U.S. troops would be needed to ensure security in Iraq, including the security necessary to rebuild and operate the country's oil industry. Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz even hung Shinseki out to dry publicly for making this estimate. But since then he has had to swallow crow.

So far, no significant amounts of Iraqi oil have been produced for world markets since the war ended. Therefore Iraqi oil exports, which were running at 2.6 million to 2.8 million barrels per day before the war began in March, have now further dropped.

Further, U.S. planners never anticipated the rapid emergence of a nationwide guerrilla war against the U.S. occupation, which is resulting in about one U.S. soldier killed per day. And as part of this guerrilla war, sabotage operations against oil pipelines are already widespread. Even with 140,000 U.S. troops in Iraq, they are spread far too thinly to aggressively fight the guerrilla war, lock down Iraq's borders with Iran and Syria and protect the oil facilities and pipelines at the same time. Furthermore, the troops currently deployed are not trained in police tactics.

In the meantime, the supposed "macro-economic" benefit of "liberating" Iraqi oil for the world market not only has not happened, precisely the opposite has occurred. Iraq is now in a far worse position to export either crude or refined oil to the world markets. As a result, the continuing effect of the war has been to strengthen the market position of the three leading global producers, Saudi Arabia, Russia and Iran, while keeping global energy prices relatively high and thereby adding a further burden to the U.S. annual balance-of trade-deficit, already by far the largest of any country in world history.

And even if Iraqi oil finally starts to flow under optimum conditions, the total amount of revenue realistically projected from it would do no more than balance the already horrendous costs of the U.S. occupation.

John Cassidy made the relevant calculations in the July 14 issue of The New Yorker. He wrote: "Assuming that oil prices hover around twenty-five dollars a barrel, which is in the middle of OPEC's target range (twenty-two to twenty-eight dollars a barrel), a resurgent Iraqi oil industry producing six million barrels of oil a day for export would generate about fifty-five billion dollars a year in revenues."

But the cost to the United States of occupying Iraq is already running at between $52 billion to $78 billion a year on the U.S. government's own projections. And even if none of that $55 billion went to offset the costs of U.S. occupation, divided among the 30 million people of Iraq, it comes to, as Cassidy wrote, "about five dollars per person per day -- enough to place Iraq above the World Bank's global poverty line of two dollars a day, but not by very much."

Thus, the escalating woes of Iraq and the soaring costs of the war have boosted the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and imposed huge additional budgetary strains on the United States at the worst possible time -- precisely the opposite outcome from the confident predictions the war's champions so loudly and repeatedly made.

No wonder the president felt the need to brave a press conference Wednesday to try and convince Congress and the U.S. people to give him that extra $80 billion.

# 98 Another reporter paid off by Bush to be biased.

I wonder how many media moguls have been paid off to propagandize in favor of Bush initiatives that we don't know about? Conservatives will brush this stuff off as no big deal, especially if it's a program they support, but bribery is still bribery. If Clinton had done this to boost his programs, conservatives would still be howling about it after he's been out of office for four years.

On the bright side, we haven't learned that this reporter is a sodomite - yet.

ANOTHER COLUMNIST WAS PAID TO PROMOTE BUSH PROPOSAL

Tue Jan 25 2005
20:13:59 ET

In 2002, syndicated columnist Maggie Gallagher repeatedly defended President Bush's push for a $300 million initiative encouraging marriage as a way of strengthening families.

But Gallagher failed to mention that she had a $21,500 contract with the Department of Health and Human Services to help promote the president's proposal, reveals Howard Kurtz in Wednesday runs of the WASHINGTON POST.

"The Bush marriage initiative would emphasize the importance of marriage to poor couples" and "educate teens on the value of delaying childbearing until marriage," she wrote in National Review Online, for example, adding that this could "carry big payoffs down the road for taxpayers and children.

"Gallagher explains to Kurtz: "Did I violate journalistic ethics by not disclosing it? I don't know. You tell me."

She said she would have "been happy to tell anyone who called me" about the contract but that "frankly, it never occurred to me" to disclose it.

National Review Editor Rich Lowry said of the HHS contract: "We would have preferred that she told us, and we would have disclosed it in her bio."

Security Risk?

by: Melissa Johnson and Sander Hicks,
News Reporter and Special to the Star -

Federal Appeals Court Judge Michael Chertoff’s ties to the financiers of the Sept. 11 attacks may prevent his confirmation as Homeland Security Chief.

According to a June 20, 2000 article in the The Record of Bergen County, New Jersey, Chertoff defended accused terrorist financier Dr. Magdy Elamir.

Elamir’s HMO was sued by the State of New Jersey to recoup $16.7 million in losses. At least $5.7 million went “to unknown parties... by means of wire transfers to bank accounts where the beneficial owner of the account is unknown,” according to the article.

Foreign intelligence reports given to then chairman of the House International Relations Committee Ben Gilman, R-New York, in 1998 accused Magdy Elamir of having “had financial ties with Osama bin Laden for years,” according to an Aug. 2, 2002 Dateline NBC broadcast.

In 1999, Magdy Elamir and brother Mohamed were named suspects in Operation Diamondback, an FBI/ATF undercover infiltration of Pakistani arms merchants who sought to arm Osama bin Laden with conventional and nuclear weapons, according to independent researcher and former New Jersey police officer Allan Duncan and taped transcripts with FBI informant Randy Glass.

Mohamed Elamir tried to purchase “small arms and ammunition” in a recorded telephone conversation with Glass, according to Dateline.

Dateline confirmed that Elamir and his corporations had paid at least $5,000 to Egyptian arms dealer Diaa Mohsen, who Elamir referred to on camera as a family friend.

Moshen was sentenced to 30 months for his involvement in Operation Diamondback. However, Elamir was never convicted. Duncan, who was hired by family members of the Sept. 11 victims to research government ties to the attacks, said the reason Magdy Elamir was never convicted was because he was never charged with a crime.

“By the time Operation Diamondback culminated in arrests in the summer of 2001, Michael Chertoff was the Assistant Attorney General in charge of the criminal division and Operation Diamondback would have fallen under his prevue since it was a criminal case and not a counterterrorism case,” Duncan said.

From 1990 to 1994, Chertoff was U.S. Attorney for the District of New Jersey, during the period when the first attack on the World Trade Center took place.

Omar Abdel-Rahman preached at the Al Salam mosque and was later arrested for his role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, according to Dateline.

Magdy Elamir was one of the Al Salam mosque’s financial supporters.

“The Jersey City area and particularly the Al Salam mosque were allowed to continue to be one of the major hubs of terrorist activity in the United States,” Duncan said.

In October 2001, Chertoff was appointed head of Operation Green Quest, a multi-agency initiative to target sources of funding for terrorist organizations, according to a U.S. Customs Service press release.

Chertoff told the Associated Press on Oct. 25, 2001 that, “The lifeblood of terrorism is money, and if we cut the money we cut the blood supply.”

Chertoff served in the capacity of Assistant Attorney General of the criminal division at the Department of Justice from 2001 to 2003. While acting in this position, Chertoff played a central role in formulating U.S. anti-terrorism policy — from increasing the FBI’s authority to conduct domestic surveillance at religious gatherings to the effort to secretly detain hundreds of Middle Easterners in the United States.

Chertoff was one of the chief architects of the Title III of the USA PATRIOT Act, also known as the International Money Laundering Abatement and Financial Anti-Terrorism Act of 2001. Chertoff was then nominated to the Third Circuit U.S Court of Appeals in June 2003.

Though there is no formal career path for federal judges, it is common for appellate judges to have served as district judges prior to appointments, according to the Administrative Office of the United States Courts. Despite having never served in the judiciary, Chertoff was made a federal judge whose jurisdiction includes Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and the Virgin Islands.

After 19 months, President Bush nominated Chertoff to the position of Secretary of Homeland Security.

Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, a government advocacy watchdog agency, has noticed Chertoff’s advancement from Assistant Attorney General of the Department of Justice to Secretary of Homeland Security nominee over the past four years.

“It’s an exceptional rise to power,” said Fitton.

Whether or not Chertoff had prior knowledge of Elamir’s alleged connections to Diaa Mohsen and bin Laden is unknown.

Calls to Chertoff’s office were not returned.

Senate confirmations hearings for Chertoff have yet to be scheduled, according to the office of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.

# 96 Everything but what is needed.

Bush is proposing spending gajillions of dollars for all kinds of alleged programs to combat terror, but he withdrew funds to beef up our borders, one of the few things that might really help. It's almost as if he doesn't really want to hinder the terrorists.

President won't add 2,000 border agents

Despite signing bill calling for bigger staff, Bush budget will not include needed funds

January 25, 2005

© 2005 WorldNetDaily.com

Despite his signing a bill authorizing 2,000 new border agents, President Bush will not ask Congress for enough money to fund them.

Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge told USA Today yesterday that the administration's new budget will propose "good incremental increase" in the number of agents but would not approach the 2,000 level.

As part of the intelligence bill passed last month, Congress proposed nearly doubling the number of Border Patrol agents by adding 10,000 over five years. But Ridge scoffed at such an increase, saying it would be an inefficient use of homeland security funds.

"The notion that you're going to have 10,000 is sort of a fool's gold," Ridge told the paper. "It's nice to say you're going to have 10,000 more Border Patrol agents in five years, but what other part of Homeland Security do you want to take the money from?"

(TG: ANY part!)

He said it makes more sense to pay for a combination of more agents and better technology, such as ground sensors and cameras.

T.J. Bonner, president of the National Border Patrol Council, criticized the lack of funding.

"Cameras don't catch people, people catch people," he told USA Today. "If you don't have the agents you're not going to catch the people your technology sees."

The number of illegal aliens in the U.S. grows daily with estimates ranging from 8 million to 20 million.

White House: Deficit Will Hit Record $427B

By ALAN FRAM, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON - The White House will project that this year's federal deficit will hit $427 billion, a senior administration official said Tuesday, a record amount partly driven by wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The official, among three who briefed reporters on condition of anonymity, said the estimate was a conservative one that assumed some higher spending than other analysts use.

Last February, the White House projected that the 2004 shortfall would hit $521 billion, only to see it come in at $412 billion. The official said the figure represented progress because it would be smaller than last year's record $412 billion shortfall when compared to the size of the growing U.S. economy. That ratio is a key measure of the deficit's potency.

"Our projections will show we remain on track to cut the deficit in half by 2009," one of President Bush's budget goals, the official told reporters. Even so, the number was among a blizzard of figures released Tuesday that illustrated how federal deficits remain a problem that Bush and Congress must reckon with.

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said that thanks to tax cuts and hurricane aid passed since its last calculations in September, the 10-year deficit had worsened since then by $503 billion, not counting war expenditures.

The congressional analysts projected that this year's deficit would hit $368 billion — which would be the third highest ever — excluding war costs. Adding expenditures for Iraq and Afghanistan operations would push this year's red ink to about $400 billion, said Congress' nonpartisan budget analyst.

Underscoring budget pressures hounding lawmakers, senior administration officials invited reporters to the White House to outline their upcoming request for an additional $80 billion, or slightly more, to help pay this year's costs of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

"I am grateful that Congress in a strong bipartisan fashion has consistently voted to support our troops, and I urge it to do so again," Bush said in a written statement.

There is little doubt lawmakers will follow Bush's lead, as they have repeatedly since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. The latest proposal would bring war spending so far to about $308 billion, including $25 billion to rebuild Iraq and Afghanistan, according to the Congressional Research Service, which provides reports to lawmakers.

Bush plans to send his 2006 budget to Congress on Feb. 7. It will not include a request for more war funds for that year, the officials said, saving that request for later.

Tuesday's forecast by the Congressional Budget Office was widely awaited at the start of a year when Bush and Republicans are likely to propose tight spending restraints — and battle Democrats and some GOP lawmakers over those plans.

The budget office projected $855 billion in shortfalls for the decade ending in 2015. The office estimated that deficits would gradually fade into slight surpluses by 2012 — but not many were taking that forecast at face value. In making those estimates, the budget office assumed that current tax and spending laws would be unchanged, as it is required to do by law.

The practice is designed to give lawmakers a neutral starting point to work from when crafting legislation. As a result, the budget office projections omitted war costs and some of Bush's top legislative priorities.

The budget office said assuming U.S. troop strength in Iraq and Afghanistan stays steady through next year and then declines gradually, those wars would add $590 billion to the decade's deficits. Bush's proposal to prevent his tax cuts from expiring — and easing the impact of the alternative minimum tax on middle-income Americans, a move both parties favor — could add red ink exceeding $2.3 trillion, the budget office said.

The budget office did not say how much Bush's plans to revamp Social Security would cost, but it has been estimated at $1 trillion to $2 trillion. On the other hand, the budget office assumed most domestic programs would grow at the same rate as inflation. Keeping such spending at about the same level as this year for the entire decade — which Bush may come close to proposing — could reduce deficits by $1.3 trillion over the period, the budget office said.

Republicans used the deficit figures to argue that budget savings must be found this year, including from popular benefit programs. "If we do nothing, our kids and grandkids will be overwhelmed by the costs of our inaction," said Senate Budget Committee Chairman Judd Gregg, R-N.H. Democrats blamed Bush and the GOP for the daunting piles of red ink.

"Republicans control the House, the Senate and the White House, but they can't control the budget and they can't escape responsibility for its dismal condition," said Rep. John Spratt of South Carolina, top Democrat on the House Budget Committee.

The administration officials provided little new detail about their war package. They said of the $80 billion, about $75 billion would be for the Defense Department, with most of it for the Army. They said such spending would include personnel costs, the start of an effort to add at least 17 combat brigades to the Army and replacing worn out equipment.

The rest of the money would largely be for aid the State Department would give to U.S. allies and for other expenses. Included would be money to help new Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas, to build an embassy in Baghdad and to aid victims of fighting in Sudan's Darfur province.

The cost of the embassy alone has been estimated at $1.5 billion. They did not state whether the request would include aid for Indian Ocean countries staggered by the tsunami. But one said the United States was spending $5 million daily there, and the administration would seek a "significant request, very generous assistance."

The United States has already committed $350 million to tsunami recovery efforts.

# 94 Bush pushes LOST treaty again.

He tried last year to get us LOST and was rebuffed. He tried again last month to get us LOST and failed again (#44 http://usinfo.state.gov/gi/Archive/2004/Dec/17-588638.html). But Bush is persistent, and he's trying again while his supporters are still drunk from the inauguration. If only he had this kind of persistence to try to make abortion and the sodomite agenda illegal, he would probably be successful.

THE NEW WORLD DISORDER

Sovereignty-sapping U.N. accord gets new life

Rice says Bush 'would like to see' Law of the Sea Treaty passed in Senate

The Law of the Sea Treaty, or LOST, a U.N. agreement decried by U.S. sovereignty advocates who were able to prevent consideration by the United States Senate last year, appears to have new life after comments made by Secretary of State-designate Condoleezza Rice at her confirmation hearings.

The international treaty, which gives a U.N. agency called the Seabed Authority control of over 70 percent of the earth's surface and natural resources, was thought to be a slam-dunk for approval in the Senate last year, but opponents pressured members of the body, including Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., and no vote was held.

Bush administration officials have pushed for the treaty's passage, as has Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind. Lugar held hearings on the legislation in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee last year, but failed to allow opponents of the treaty to testify.

According to an e-mail alert from the American Conservative Union, Lugar then "exerted pressure on Majority Leader Bill Frist to bring the matter to the full Senate – without debate and without a recorded vote." Besides giving the U.N. power over seven-tenths of the earth's surface, the treaty would have authority to tax by requiring a permit to engage in any activity affecting the seabed, such as oil drilling or mining. The permit would cost $250,000.

The Seabed Authority could also require royalty payments for minerals extracted.

# 93 Bush promotes democracy in Inaugural.

" So it is the policy of the United States to seek and support the growth of democratic movements and institutions in every nation and culture, with the ultimate goal of ending tyranny in our world."

America is not a democracy, she is a republic. That's one of the reasons people hate the Pledge of Allegiance which is given "to the Republic, for which it stands".

A democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on dinner. It is mob rule.

Our representative, Constitutional Republic provides for inalienable rights, which cannot be abrogated by majority vote, or even unanimous vote. The founders of America loathed a democracy.

# 92 Bush invokes New World Order in Inaugural.

"When our Founders declared a new order of the ages; when soldiers died in wave upon wave for a union based on liberty; when citizens marched in peaceful outrage under the banner "Freedom Now" they were acting on an ancient hope that is meant to be fulfilled."

The term "a new order of the ages" is the translation of a motto on the reverse side of the Great Seal of the United States (www.greatseal.com) which can be seen on the back of the dollar bill, written in Latin as, "Novus Ordo Seclorum", a synonym for "new world order".

# 91 Bush elevates Koran in Inaugural Address.

After being sworn in George W. Bush gave his Inaugural Address, which included the following:

That edifice of character is built in families, supported by communities with standards, and sustained in our national life by the truths of Sinai, the Sermon on the Mount, the words of the Koran, and the varied faiths of our people.

Of course the Bible and the Koran conflict greatly. They cannot both build the same kind of society. Notice that only two examples of the Bible are alluded to (and one of them is probably also in the Koran), but the WORDS of the Koran (assumedly ALL of them), and the varied FAITHS of OTHER people (non-Christians) are lauded.

He is making it out that America was built by the Koran, other faiths, and just a sprinkling of Christianity.

"The words of the Koran?"

Those are the words of Mohammed, a 7th Century Arabian conqueror and tyrant. At what point did the Koran become a contributor to the American ideal of freedom? At what point did multiculturalism and political correctness make it so imperative that even a Republican President would choose to ignore the truth and elevate the likes of Mohammed to the level of even Moses, let alone of Jesus?

The truths of Sinai are embodied in the Ten Commandments. The Sermon on the Mount is an essential revelation of the teachings and character of Jesus Christ. These are implicitly understood as foundational elements of Western and American Civilization. Can this be said of the words of the Koran? Sura 9 of the Koran is understood by Muslim scholars to be the last Sura "given" to Mohammed, and as such is the final word, trumping any previous Sura with which it might conflict. It is essentially the Great Commission of Mohammedans, and not surprisingly, it deals extensively with the practice of jihad, or holy war.

Here are a few passages from Sura 9: 9:5

But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, an seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war); but if they repent, and establish regular prayers and practise regular charity, then open the way for them: for God is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.

That doesn't sound much like "turn the other cheek." What President Bush has done in his address is reiterate his fundamental misunderstanding of the nature of the war America now fights. The words of the Koran do not reinforce America's ideal of freedom; the words of Mohammed directly inspire the mortal threat that Islam poses to American Civilization.

If we do not understand our enemy, what are our prospects for victory?
