Benito … err … Rudy Giuliani is no Libertarian

Good article on the subject.

Why so-called pro-war libertarians like Eric Dondero support Rudy is beyond me. Probably because they aren’t first and foremost principled libertarians but are primarily social liberals. Per the Eric Donderoes of the world, “Islamofascists” in far away lands threaten their right to sin here at home. So to protect against that undesirable outcome, they want to sick Rudy and the full force of the US Military on those evil Islamofascist and kill all of them so sinners can continue to buy porn, fornicate and kill the unwanted byproduct of that act. (I guess you could sum that up in a slogan as “Kill Muslims so we can continue to make and kill babies.”)

Now exactly how those Islamofascists threaten their right to ogle women has never been clear to me. In the fearful, jingoistic wet dreams of ol’ Eric, I guess the Iranian Navy is traversing the Atlantic as we speak. Ready to land a large Normandy style assault force somewhere in Galveston Bay where they will quickly dispatch all resistance as they make their way from town to town slaughtering infidels. After they make quick work of all the gun toting Texans that stand in their way, they will single out poor Eric and burn him at the stake in a fire fueled exclusively by his porn stash.

That is the message of the hysterical Donderoesq “pro-war Libertarians.” Kill all them evil Fundamentalist Muslims or else all the young nubile American women will be forced to wear Burqas. How they get there from actually reality is anybody’s guess.

The ultimate illustration of the pro-war libertarian’s misplaced priorities is that they are supporting Benito who is about as close to a fascist as you will find in America. Indiscriminately killing Muslim makes for some strange bedfellows.

Keep Ron Paul in the June 5 New Hampshire Debate!

Dear Fellow Conservative:

 

The next Republican presidential debate is just days away. It will be held at 7:00 pm Eastern Time on Tuesday, June 5 in New Hampshire. Its sponsors are CNN, the Manchester (NH) Union Leader, and WMUR-TV. CNN will televise the debate, which is being hosted by Wolf Blitzer.

 

It’s up to you and I and all our conservative friends to make sure this is a real debate—with real conservative views allowed—and not a sham Soviet-style “debate” with just one Establishment-approved viewpoint expressed.

Anger Over Immigration Plan Surprises GOP Senators

Mike Tuggle

Many others in the ruling elite are surprised, too. After all, Americans have been scolded repeatedly that it’s racist to control the borders. Obviously, someone needs remedial brainwashing. How can DC impose its globalist agenda with such unenlightened views out there in flyover country? And those views are pretty intense:

North American Union

Here is a twenty-minute Powerpoint presentation on the treasonous North American Union. A very informative presentation.

The problem with the North American Union debate is a semantic one. Obviously under NAFTA and the SPP integration is taking place. How far it will go and whether this constitutes a union is the debate. I, personally, think that the outline of the SPP itself constitutes an attempt to create a union.

French to Pay Third-World Invaders to Leave

New [French] immigration minister, Brice Hortefeux, confirmed on Wednesday that the government is planning to offer incentives to more immigrants to return home voluntarily. “We must increase this measure to help voluntary return. I am very clearly committed to doing that,” Hortefeux said in an interview with RFI radio.Under the scheme, Paris will provide each family with a nest egg of €6,000 ($8,000) for when they go back to their country of origin. A similar scheme, which was introduced in 2005 and 2006, was taken up by around 3,000 families. ~ Der Spiegel via Steve Sailer

Good idea. I’d prefer to round them up and deport them. But this is better than nothing. At least the French are trying to prevent their country from becoming a third-world sewer. (Bush is actually encouraging it.)

Kirk, Hayek, and Strauss

Over at the neocon Corner they are discussing “Berkowitz’s Big Three”- Kirk, Hayek, and Strauss – as the most influential conservatives of our age. Of course, I think this list is wrongheaded.

Hayek was not a conservative, but rather a classical liberal. He was correct to oppose Marxism, but so did many others. Hayek supporters tend to be apologists for unbridled capitalism that in itself has become an “ism” not unlike Marxism.

Putting Strauss on this list is absurd. He was a mediocre thinker at best, and hardly a conservative. He was successful at peddling left-wing Jacobin thought as conservative, and at superimposing over the Greeks a modernist notion of natural right. Strauss should be in the top 3 for the Greatest Conman List or the Greatest Neocon / Neoliberal List, but not on any conservative list.

Hillary: Give Socialism a Second Chance

Mike Tuggle

Good news! We’re all gonna get money from the all-benevolent Federal government—thanks to almost-President Hillary Clinton:

Presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton outlined a broad economic vision Tuesday, saying it’s time to replace an “on your own” society with one based on shared responsibility and prosperity. The Democratic senator said what the Bush administration touts as an “ownership society” really is an “on your own” society that has widened the gap between rich and poor.

Neocon Fred Thompson to enter Race

A Fred Thomson aid has all but announced that Thompson will enter the race, which will change the demographics significantly. I doubt he’ll steal many Ron Paul or Tancredo supporters, but he will pull support from Giuliani, McCain and Romney.

Thompson will run as a “mainstream conservative,” which itself is misleading, since he is a neocon. He is a “fellow” at the American Enterprise Institute, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and, while in the Senate, had a lackluster voting record on immigration. He also is member of that suicide pact known as “nothing is wrong with unbridled free trade,” and he supports affirmative action.

Regardless, he’s a smart choice for the neocons. He’s just socially conservative enough and just tough enough on the borders to attract many movement conservatives.

Proof Paul Supporters Are Not Spamming

Below is a press release I received. First we need to define terms. If a single person or small group votes over and over again in the same poll then that is spamming. It is not spamming if sites supportive of Ron Paul direct their readers to a poll to vote as we often do here at Conservative Times. Since some here don’t necessarily support Paul, we usually don’t even say “go here and vote for Paul.” These polls reflect the intensity of Paul’s support, not its total size. But I guarantee you that the intensity of Paul’s Internet supporters is the envy of the other campaigns.

So the “Paul’s support is all illusionary” crowd, such as John Hawkins at Right Wing (sic) News, need to be corrected when they recklessly allege “spamming.” They are whistling past the graveyard.

Ron Paul Gets 91% in Straw Poll; Not the Work of Spammers

Popular online web site dedicated to election polls proves that the online support of Ron Paul is legitimate and not the work of spammers.

Mexicans boo Miss USA

MEXICO CITY — Many here south of the border reveled in her disastrous evening: First Miss USA Rachel Smith slipped and fell on her bottom during the Miss Universe evening gown competition. Then she was booed by hundreds in the Mexican audience.

The treatment of the Tennessee beauty queen was nothing personal. It had more to do with Mexico’s sometimes tense relationship with its powerful northern neighbor.

U.S. athletes have sparked a similar response. In 2005, when the U.S. played Mexico during a World Cup soccer qualifier, the crowd booed the U.S. national anthem and a smattering of fans chanted “Osama! Osama!” during the game. ~ AP

Those family values do not end at the border, you know.

Right Wing (sic) News is Bashing Ron Paul

The owner of the site, John Hawkins, is very hawkish. He was quoted in the National Review article on Ron Paul and called him a “kook.” See these threads.

I have posted a few comments. Let’s let Mr. Hawkins feel some pro-Ron Paul heat. Registration is required to post.

I had a run in with this site last year. John Hawkins posted some ignorant and derogatory slurs against the League of the South. He is not an authentic conservative, and properly understood he is not right-wing. (Nationalism is a leftist concept.) He is a nationalistic, militaristic, Statist. I pointed that out to him and his posters in the LoS comment thread, and it was like talking to the wall.

Cindy Sheehan Calls it Quits

See the full story here.

I found this statement interesting.

When Sheehan first took on Bush, she was a darling of the liberal left. “However, when I started to hold the Democratic Party to the same standards that I held the Republican Party, support for my cause started to erode and the ‘left’ started labeling me with the same slurs that the right used,” she wrote in the diary.

She said she sacrificed a 29-year marriage and endured threats to put all her energy into stopping the war. What she found, she wrote, was a movement “that often puts personal egos above peace and human life.”

She is right. To often it is all about party and not about doing what is right. That is true for Democrats and Republicans.
