From WorldNetDaily...

http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=527...

Quote:
JERUSALEM – Everybody has an opinion about next Tuesday's midterm congressional election in the U.S. – including senior terrorist leaders interviewed by WND who say they hope Americans sweep the Democrats into power because of the party's position on withdrawing from Iraq, a move, as they see it, that ensures victory for the worldwide Islamic resistance.

The terrorists told WorldNetDaily an electoral win for the Democrats would prove to them Americans are "tired."

They rejected statements from some prominent Democrats in the U.S. that a withdrawal from Iraq would end the insurgency, explaining an evacuation would prove resistance works and would compel jihadists to continue fighting until America is destroyed.

They said a withdrawal would also embolden their own terror groups to enhance "resistance" against Israel.

"Of course Americans should vote Democrat," Jihad Jaara, a senior member of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terror group and the infamous leader of the 2002 siege of Bethlehem's Church of the Nativity, told WND.

I have a new plan for world domination:

1)Do something that people won't like at all, so that I become an enemy of the state

2)Close to election day, say that I wish X and Y win, when I really would rather see any other candidate to win

3)See how the sheeple vote 'against what I want', as opposed to voting what 's better for them.

Does anybody believe that the Madrid bombing had no effect on the elections in Spain a few years ago?

But, to put it more in perspective, I think if there were a Presidential election and a candidate preaching, "Pull all US troops out immediately," were elected, it could be construed that we were responding to terrorists.

Electing a few more Democrats this midterm election (which could be considered good or bad on a case by case basis) even if there are a few nutjobs among them advocating immediate withdrawal would be hard to see as capitulating to terrorism.

If you honestly believe that garbage, NOTHING will sway your vote save maybe Jesus coming down from Heaven to smack your retarded ass around.

Although I suppose it is the Democrat’s fault for adopting the campaign platform to “blow up all government buildings in the name of Allah.” I mean even I thought that might've been a faux pas...

-Wait, maybe that was a dream. Is Dick Cheney a ten story tall, radioactive marshmallow peep? Yeah, definitely a dream…

Heh heh. I know. As Larry the Cable Guy says, "It's kind of like driving in to a trailer park and screaming, 'Wal-Mart sucks.'" Bound to draw a mixed response.

The Madrid bombings have been analyzed to death by Spanish newspapers... I know, I read them. The bombings themselves had relatively little to do with the swing towards the socialist party. The conservative government's reaction to the bombings did cause a massive movement of typical non-voters to go to the booths and get rid of a government that lied to them in a time of crisis.

If, instead of trying to blame ETA for the bombings, Aznar and his crew had acted properly, I'd have no doubt the Spaniards would have reallied around him. His party's reaction made many of us feel cheated, and saw the government's response as a way to get points towards the elections: I mean, nobody in their right mind would think that ETA was to blame for a bombing like that. It's just not their modus operandi.

Spain decided to vote a bunch of liars out of office. Liars that had gone to war in Iraq against the will of their people anyway. I wish Americans were just as unforgiving when their chief lies to them.

Washington (Reuters) Nov 8 In a surprising turn of events the Amish Party has gained control of the U.S. House and Senate with 70% of the vote. This last minute come-from-way-way-way-behind victory was completely unforeseen by all political commentators, and was accomplished by an eleventh hour advertising campaign financed by Muslim terrorists.

On a similar note and more noteworthy, here is the US screwing around with the democratic process in a sovereign nation, with threats and financing the party that we support... BONUS: an extra special cameo appearance by the one and only Ollie North!

http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20061022/wl_nm/nicaragua_usa_dc

Quote:
MANAGUA, Nicaragua (Reuters) - Election monitors from the Organization of American states told Washington on Saturday not to meddle in Nicaragua's presidential election, which polls show Sandinista leader Daniel Ortega could win.


http://www.iht.com/articles/ap/2006/10/23/america/LA_POL_Nic...

Quote:
MANAGUA, Nicaragua Oliver North, the former White House aide at the heart of the Iran-Contra controversy, warned Monday against Sandinista leader Daniel Ortega's possible return to power if he wins Nicaragua's presidential election next month

A former Contra who is running as Ortega's vice president, however, said the United States should give the ex-revolutionary a chance.

In an exclusive interview with The Associated Press, Jaime Morales said presidential front-runner Ortega isn't the same man who led a war against Washington-backed Contra rebels in the 1980s.

"I believe in him because he has truly matured over the years," he said.

Morales was the spokesman for the Contras when Washington organized and funded their civil war against the Sandinistas. Ortega even seized Morales' six-bedroom estate and still lives there.

Ortega, who helped overthrow dictator Anastasio Somoza in 1979 and whose rule ended in electoral defeat in 1990, recently paid Morales an undisclosed amount for the estate, and the two reconciled this year.

Morales said he was "used" by the United States in the 1980s, and won't let that happen again if he becomes vice president. His comments come after a series of visits by U.S. congressional members and State Department officials warning that Ortega is a danger to the country's fragile democracy.

Morales lambasted the U.S. criticism as "blackmail."


http://www.therationalradical.com/dsep/0801/nicaragua-ortega...

Quote:
U.S. has allocated $5.6 million for "monitoring" and other "help" in the upcoming Nicaraguan presidential elections. (That number may be changing somewhat, according to an official I spoke to at the U.S. Agency for International Development, which will administer the funds. The final number will likely be at least the figure reported on the Agency's website.)

Proportional to the relative populations of Nicaragua (4.4 million) and the United States (280 million), the $5.6 million is the equivalent of a foreign country spending over $356 million to "assist" in a U.S. presidential election.

Such an action would cause an enormous uproar here, and never be tolerated. Remember the trouble caused by the much smaller Chinese contributions in the 1996 presidential election.

Indeed, how would the U.S. react were government officials of an infinitely more powerful nation to pressure the Republican or Democrat parties to change their candidate slate? Or if such foreign officials warned the U.S. people of dire consequences were the election to go in a way not desired by that foreign power?

Israel is the only area in the world where Bush's popularity is over (and way over) 50%.
Guess why?
No wonder they want to keep him in power.
No wonder this kind of information comes from that area.

Who talked about jews??
We're talking about Israel - to my knowledge, most jews do not live in Israel.
Criticizing Israel is completely different from criticizing Jews.

So, instead of jewish conspiracy, let's talk about Israeli lobbying. The AIPAC ( http://www.aipac.org/ ) is the most important lobby in Washington, and they don't hide their goals. A few years ago they were focusing on Iraq, now they are focussing on Iran. And of course the white house closely followed them - in short the main preoccupation of Israel become the main preoccupation of the white house.
