Bart Debie writes in to report about his day in prison, revealing the workings of life on "the inside": unorganized, chaotic, unpleasant, multi-lingual, cross-cultural, but for this former police superintendent and member of Vlaams Belang, mercifully brief. (Note: Belgium is uneasily composed of French and Dutch speaking peoples.)

Thank you so much for your support, articles and  email.   Yesterday I went to the “Vorst” prison at about 9.00am. When I arrived I immediately discovered that hardly anyone spoke any Dutch. French was clearly the language to know. After I handed over my “gevangenisbriefje”--that is the official name and means “little prison letter”--I had to translate the reason for my conviction into the French language myself as the clerk was not able to understand Dutch. Can you imagine this? An official letter from the Ministry of Justice and I have to translate it myself. As I’m not al that familiar with the French judicial terminology, I had a problem. Luckily there was a police-officer...

What is there to say, I asked myself, that hasn't already been said? I decided there was one more question to ask Americans before Election Day:

Is Marxism--cultural, economic or revolutionary--presidential?

The answer is coming November 4, 2008. 

 

Just spoke to contacts overseas and learned that Bart Debie was released from Vorst prison late this afternoon. Details are sketchy, but it looks as if he will be allowed to serve out his sentence under some form of house arrest and electronic monitoring.    

I'm supposed to be writing my column, but I couldn't not stop to post this (via Michelle Malkin):

 



Melanie Phillips reports on the not merely degraded, not merely grotesque, but also thoroughly berserk and cruel state of British entertainment through an episode in which BBC "comedians," going for "laughs," publicly tormented and ridiculed 78-year-old Andrew Sachs (who many American viewers will remember as the waiter "Manuel" on the positively brilliant show "Fawlty Towers"). This has inspired a massive, and massively healthy outcry in Britain. Phillips explains:

To be exposed to British culture is to run a gauntlet of degradation, vulgarity, obscenity, prurience, voyeurism, cruelty and sadism. People suffer this onslaught in appalled silence. To protest is to court instant ridicule as a reactionary or would-be censor. But sometimes something happens which just blows the lid off, and the public’s fury and disgust and revulsion explode into the open. That’s what happened over the tormenting of Andrew...

Andy McCarthy has the question of the day:

If the LA Times released the Obama Khalidi Party tape and ABC put it on up against Obama's infomercial, which do you figure would get higher ratings?

Well, I know what I would watch....

Meanwhile, Binyamin L. Jolkovsky, editor of Jewish World Review, one of my column's homes on the Internet, is offering a reward to anyone who releases the...

Below is a brief video statement from Bart Debie, who, I expect as I am posting this, has already reported to Vorst prison outside Brussels today to begin serving a one-year sentence for "racism" as deemed by the Belgian state. I taped this snatch of video in Antwerp last summer while spending a few days in Belgium interviewing  many members of the Flemish secessionist and anti-Islamization party Vlaams Belang, Bart Debie included, along with Antwerp party leader Filip Dewinter, Frank Vanhecke of the European Parliament, party chairman Bruno Valkeniers, Alexandra Colen of the Belgian National Parliament, and Erland Pison of the Brussels Regional Parliment (Yes, they have a lot of parliaments in Belgium.) The quality may be less than Vistavision, but Debie is clear as he explains, standing behind his  formidable chair in the beautiful Antwerp city council chamber,  what it means to be stripped of...

Et tu, Washington Times?

See-Dubya writes in to highlight an AP story printed in The Washington Times on Monday titled: "Rumor Mill Keeps Candidates on the Defensive." The story opens:

Barack Obama is not a member of a socialist party. John McCain is not a foreigner. Sarah Palin is not son Trig's grandmother. And Joseph R. Biden Jr. is not dropping out of the race. Oh, and they're not all having sordid affairs. But it's rumor season again in this country, and with just days to go before the election, both campaigns are frantically knocking down these rumors....

Rumors?????? True, Obama IS not, to anyone's knowledge, a member of a socialist party, but he certainly WAS--and ran for office as such. (Seeing is believing.) Where do you think he got that "spread the wealth" stuff, anyway? Meanwhile, the Obama campaign doesn't have to waste any angst "frantically knocking down these rumors"--the...

      Photo: Bart Debie speaking to an Antwerp constituent, June  2008.

    “Funny enough, one does get used to the news.”     That’s what Bart Debie told me on confirming that, yes, he has been ordered to report to a Belgian prison on Wednesday—tomorrow--to begin serving a one-year term for “racism.”     Let me explain the ghastly surrealism of this sentence as meted out to this former police officer and former Antwerp City Council Member by the Belgian state: Debie neither made the racist remarks at issue, nor was he even present during the incident. This only adds horrific dashes of Kafka and Koestler to a politically correct prosecution of a member of the political opposition by what may be best described as fascistic little Belgium. Of course, expressing incredulity over Debie's utter innocence of "racism"  is not to admit to the legitimacy of such  "racism" prosecutions. Any such prosecutorial curb on...

Only a Marxist turn of mind could call the fact that the Civil Rights Movement didn't result in "redistributive change" "one of the tragedies" of that movement. (Come to think of it, the trillion or so taxpayer dollars that went into the Great Society sink hole wasn't exactly small "change," and it was plenty "redistributive.")

Such a tragedy is how Illinois State Senator Barack Obama characterized this supposed failure to drive the country into what sounds alarmingly like socialism in a radio interview in 2001. Or, as the New York Times, put it, "in a seven-year-old interview," which the reporter who wrote the story no doubt thought sounded older and creakier. Obama also said in 2001 that the Warren Court "wasn't that radical" given that it didn't venture "into the issues of redistribution of wealth and more basic issues of political and economic justice in this society." (Andy McCarthy points out that the Warren Court sponsored  a "criminal rights revolution" here ...even if it was less radical than the vision promoted by William Ayers' indictment of the criminal justice system, A Kind and Just Parent, ... which Obama publicly praised.... Sorry, folks; it's all connected.)

It's smoking gun time, folks. Whether the posse, as in the electorate, will, 1) ever get a whiff of what's coming out the barrel--namely, Marxist cant--or, 2) will care even if they do remains to be seen.

In this 2001 radio interview with then-Illinois State Senator Barack Obama, we hear this man who may be president discuss what he, coming at it from the  hard, hard Left, perceives to be the shortcomings of the US Constitution--namely, its supposed failure to provide for redistribution of wealth. Obama puts it this way:

...the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth and more basic issues of political and economic  justice in this society. And to that extent, as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn't that radical. It didn't break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution, at least as it's been interpreted, and the Warren Court interpreted it in the same way, that generally,...

When it comes to the supression of news, Andy McCarthy says it all (once more, with feeling) at NRO in an article about how the Los Angeles Times is refusing to release a videotape of a 2003 farewell party in Chicago at which Barack Obama not only sat through an Israel-bashing program but also gave a warm testimonial on behalf of the guest of honor Rashid Khalidi — former mouthpiece for master terrorist Yasser Arafat. This is the same Rashid Khalidi Obama now dismisses as someone he just "knows"--a la William Ayers, now, infamously, "just a guy in the neighborhood." (When asked about his relationship with Khalidi in a Florida synagogue this year, Obama said: "I do know him because he talked at the University of Chicago and he is Palestinian, and I do know him and I have had conversations with him. He is not one of...

Photo: A couple of Obama endorsers--Ahmed Yousef of Hamas and  Anisa Abd El-Fattah of the National Association of Muslim American Women, and a book they co-authored.

Colin Powell (Christopher Buckley, Scott McClellan, Ken Adelman, etc.) gets all the press, but today's column discusses some of Barack Obama's other endorsements, not to mention the political perils of the campaign's Muslim outreach program. (As in:  Excuse me, is there a jihadist in the house?)



NO ONE in the MSM is reporting on Barack Obama's membership in the socialist New Party. Stanley Kurtz adds his cry-in-the-wilderness on media silence here, where you will find links to his own reporting on Obama and the New Party, as well as to excellent scans of the New Party News  (Spring 1996) attesting to Obama's membership. These come not from the US media, of course, but from a blogger named New Zeal who is in on the story--in New Zealand.

As New Zeal points out, Obama is billed as a "New Party member," and not just "NP-endorsed."

If you wondered what happened to the immigration issue during this presidential election--namely, the political battle over the imundation of these United States by illegal aliens, largely from Mexico, from across the country's still undefended Southern border--enlighten yourself by reading Allan Wall's article on the topic at VDARE.com.

In "Who Can Sell Out the US Faster--McCain and Obama Slug It Out in Spanish," Wall picks up the trail of immigration, just last year a top political issue, in its now exclusively Spanish-language existence in Spanish-language US media. While the English-speaking (for now) majority hears nada on the topic, immigration is a hot topic in a Spanish-language ad war currently being waged between Obama and McCain  over which candidate can deliver more of amnesty faster.

A number of readers have asked whether Barack Obama's ties to bona fide radicals and subversives would jeopardize his ability to gain the security clearance necessary to be commander-in-chief. Daniel Pipes says indeed they would, writing: "Obama's multiple links to anti-Americans and subversives mean he would fail the standard security clearance process for Federal employees." He explains why here.

A little-noted October poll of more than 4,000 readers of Military Times shows overwhelming support for John McCain across the service branches, age groups, enlisted men and officers. Only in the category of race do poll numbers shift very dramatically, with black readers polling heavily in favor of Obama. (There is also a less significant but noticeable shift in support  among women.) Here are some of the numbers (and here is the story, with links): 

White/Non-Hispanic: 76% McCain, 17% Obama

Hispanic/Latino: 63% McCain, 27% Obama

Black: 12% McCain, 79% Obama

Age 18-34: 65% McCain, 27% Obama

Age 35 and above: 70% McCain, 21% Obama

Enlisted: 67% McCain, 24% Obama

Officers: 70% McCain, 22% Obama

Women: 53% McCain, 36% Obama

 

 

Obama's really winning big in the endorsement department:

"Iranian speaker Larijani: Iran Prefers Obama as US President"

 



The story of Colin Powell's week wasn't his (reptilian) endorsement of Barack Obama, it was his debut as a rocker of conscience with Nigerian performer Olu Maintain, whom Powell accompanied in singing "Yahoozee" at Royal Albert Hall.

(This is a true story.)

The BBC reports:

Mr Powell told the audience his own black identity mattered as much as ever and that Africa, with hard work and foreign investment, could prosper like Asia and Eastern Europe.

"I stand before you tonight as an African-American," Mr Powell said. "Many people have said to me you became secretary of state of the USA, is it still necessary to say that you are an African-American or that you are black, and I say, yes, so that we can remind our children. "It took a lot of people struggling to bring me to this point in history. I didn't just drop out...

My good friend Paul Belien of the Brussels Journal alerted me to today's post by A. Millar on the hackle-raising-scary emergence of a pro-jihadist bloc within the British Conservative Party called the Conservative Muslim Forum. Millar opens the discussion with a quotation from the group that says:

“If a political party wishes to campaign, constitutionally, for the abolition of democracy in the UK and its replacement by a totalitarian system, why should it not be free to do so?”

Millar writes:   These are the words of the Conservative Muslim Forum, in its report, An Unquiet World: A Response. It may be a rhetorical question, but having spent some time looking at this organization, I can say that I have very grave concerns about it, and about its influence on the Conservative Party, and, by extension, on British politics.

The Conservative Muslim Forum has been criticized...

OK. So Sayed Parwiz Kambakhsh won't be getting the death sentence for "blasphemy"---just a mere two decades rotting in an Afghan jail. No wonder he looks so unhappy.

The point remains that Afghanistan may be US-liberated, but it ain't free, nor does it wish to be--not so long as Islamic law (sharia) is the law of the land. And didn't we help write that law of the land? Never mind.

I have a big problem with whoever is elected president on November 4. Both Obama and McCain plan to "surge" more US troops into Afghanistan to "defeat" the Taliban and win....what? Message to next president: The US military should never be used to make the world safe for...

I finally figured out what "hope" and "change" mean to conservatives (loosely) who are endorsing Barack Obama. They "hope" the presidency will "change" Obama.

Here, taken from a couple of such endorsements, is what I mean:

President Obama will (I pray, secularly) surely understand that traditional left-politics aren’t going to get us out of this pit we’ve dug for ourselves.

--Christopher Buckley

I sure hope Obama is more open, centrist, sensible—dare I say, Clintonesque—than his liberal record indicates, than his cooperation with Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid portends.

--Ken Adelman

In other words, they hope Obama will not revert to Leftist type. Which doesn't exactly come under the heading of hard-headed analysis, no matter how deeply such conservatives (loosely) are weirdly and wildly affronted by the very sight and sound of Sarah Palin. They rail against...

Caught most of Sean Hannity's second special on Barack Obama's radical ties on Fox last night. Unforgettable tidbit: "Frank," who served as a father-figurelike racial counselor  to Obama, as described in Obama's Dreams from My Father, has been largely edited out of the audio version of the book. A Random House spokesman told Fox that such editing was Obama's decision, which makes sense since not only is he the author of the book, he is the recorded reader of the audio version.

"Frank," of course, has been identified by Cliff Kincaid as Frank Marshall Davis, a known communist. He has also been i.d.'d as a sexual deviant. Or maybe, like William Ayers, he was "just a guy in the neighborhood"?

When the history of this election is written--quite possibly in offline silence a la  those Irish monks who salvaged civilization during barbarous times--the role of the licky-lapdog media in the (literally) unchecked rise of Barack Obama will be seen as paramount.

"Partisan" isn't the word to describe the derelict, incurious subservience displayed by this robo-bama vanguard. I say this on reading only the latest bombshell about Obama's ties to the hard Left, if not socialist New Party of Chicago, which Stanley Kurtz examines here (along with the New Party's connections to ACORN...).

The media will just plug up its ears. Or write another hit piece about...Cindy McCain.

Still, just for the record--just for the monks--Kurtz wonders:

Protect Our Troops

Remember that problematic Status of Forces Agreement between the US and Iraq--the one that's been kicking around forever, sticking mainly on the matter of who--the US or Iraq--would have legal jurisdiction over American troops and contractors serving in Iraq?

And remember how the US has said that US jurisdiction over US personnel was non-negotiable?

Well, it looks as if everything is negotiable in the Mesopatamian souk. From today's Washington Post, a story about the latest "draft agreement":

BAGHDAD, Oct. 17 -- A number of senior Iraqi and U.S. politicians expressed strong reservations Friday about the terms of a draft agreement that gives IraqU.S. military bases here. the "primary right" -- subject to U.S. acquiescence -- to try American soldiers accused of serious crimes committed during off-duty hours outside

An English reader writes in:

How very tedious all we minions are, discussing Joe the Plumber ad nauseum, when clearly Obama, with his line about "sharing the wealth" really wants to talk about Joe Stalin

From PAGE SIX of the New York Post:

THOUGH he's battling GOP accusations that he's an Ivy League elitist, Barack Obama has a lifestyle of the rich and famous, like TV show host Robin Leach, who always signed off, "Champagne wishes and caviar dreams!" While he was at a meeting at the Waldorf-Astoria at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Michelle Obama called room service and ordered lobster hors d'oeuvres, two whole steamed lobsters, Iranian caviar and champagne, a tipster told Page Six.

Like wilding hordes, the media are now racing and ransacking through the life and livelihood of Joe the Plumber, grasping at the fistful of dirt, sucking at the salacious drop of juice, all to punish him. Why? For calling out the Barackian Idol, whose unscripted response to Joe on the Ohio hustings revealed radical and redistribution designs right out of Karl Marx. As Obama put it, straight and succint, "I think that when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody."

And here's the dangerously twisted problem: Instead of the media making it their duty to explore the origins and ramifications...

OPEC calls emergency meeting as oil prices plummet



This week's column explores an alternate universe where John McCain not only leads in the polls, he also has a web of ties to anti-American extremists. Read it  here or below:

We interrupt regular column writing to ... imagine John McCain ahead in the polls. Imagine that McCain had spent the last 20 years in the pews of a white supremacist church that supported an apartheid-like separationism from black people, and also that, until a few months ago, McCain had proudly claimed the church's white racist pastor as his "friend, mentor and pastor" -- even taking the title of his best-selling 2006 memoir from one of this man's sermons. Imagine further that, in the 1990s, McCain had directed foundation funding toward a white-separatist...

He's baaa-aaack.

Jesse Jackson, whose son Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. is, not incidentally, an Obama campaign co-chairman, had this to say to Amir Taheri writing in the New York Post:

"Zionists who have controlled American policy for decades" would lose some of their influence with Obama in the White House, and that "decades of putting Israel's interests first" would end.

Jackson also said: "Barack is determined to repair our relations with the world of Islam and Muslims," Jackson says. "Thanks to his background and ecumenical approach, he knows how Muslims feel while remaining committed to his own faith."

Reading through the painstaking reportage on Barack Obama as presented through this election cycle by Stanley Kurtz (latest here), you think: What do we need the MSM for when we have Kurtz's Obama oeuvre? Answer: We need them to spread it around. To analyze and parse the information. To gather more information. To pose the questions raised by this information to the Candidate Himself. To present all of this urgently important information  to the American people so they can decide if this extreme Leftist incubated in a hothouse of anti-Americanism should be our next president. Even as the MSM are content to feed off Obama campaign press releases, the pabulum about "hope" and "change" they offer us is poisoning the democratic process.

For example, did you know the reportedly "post-racial"...

How do they look at themselves in the media monitor every morning? The latest New Narrative to emerge from the MSM fever swamps is "Republican Rage" based on isolated heckler(s). How about Democratic Rage--as orchestrated, amplified and applauded by Democratic masses? Michelle Malkin does us a favor by putting it all together here, including video (below):

Photo: Obama and Odinga. Are they, as Odinga claims, cousins? Don't ask our media.

Writing in the Washington Times, Mark Hyman sums up what we know about Barack Obama's strangely special relationship with Raila Odinga, the Marxist prime minister of Kenya. Odinga is the Kenyan pol whose  backing from Kenyan Muslims rests on a memorandum of understanding he signed in August 2007 with Sheik Abdullahi Abdi, chairman of the National Muslim Leaders Forum. As Hyman writes:

The details of the MOU were shocking. In return for Muslim backing, Mr. Odinga promised to impose a number of measures favored by Muslims if he were elected president. Among these were recognition of "Islam as the only true religion," Islamic leaders would have an "oversight role to monitor activities of ALL other religions [emphasis in original]," installation of Shariah courts in every jurisdiction, a ban on Christian preaching, replacement...

Filip Dewinter  (above, center) on the violent "antifa" attack that prevented him from participating in a debate at the University of Ghent: “We were struck and beaten because we wanted access to a university for an approved debate. The so-called anti-fascists used fascist methods to try to silence us. This can not be allowed in a democracy.”

The Gates of Vienna is must-reading for otherwise inaccessible battle bulletins from the WOWC (War on Western Civilization).

The Obama campaign’s Muslim outreach director participated in a meeting in mid September that was attended by several controversial Muslim activists, NBC News has learned.

And who might they be?

For starters, there was...

...Mahdi Bray of the Muslim American Society, several of the participants said. The MAS website describes Bray as an imam and “long time civil and human rights activist.” Bray’s critics say he has a history of defending terrorists. They point to a video of Bray at a rally in 2000, for example, in which he can be seen pumping his fist in the air in support of the terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah. In a 2004 interview, he called the Israeli assassination of...

Sorry, folks--we've got to do our own research and analysis given that our mainstream news media, keepers of the First Amendment and all that, are hopelessy PrObama partisans.

Here's the beef at Powerline, via Politicallydrunk, and The Corner, via No Quarter.

 

 



Just watched, via Youtube, much of the excellent Lt. Col. Allen West (US Army, ret.), GOP candidate for Florida's 22nd District, debating incumbent Rep. Ron Klein (D), who, not at all incidentally these days, is the recipient of $789,238 in campaign contributions from the financial services industry--more than top leaders of his own financial-services-friendly Democratic party. Not suprisingly, Klein supported the bailout bill, which West, bless him, opposed.

...to do the heavy lifting for John McCain. And we couldn't even begin to try without spin-busting analysis like this from Andy McCarthy. (Don't miss the Obama-Ayers-Edward Said connection noted toward the end.)

From National Review Online yesterday (links in the original) in plenty of time, sigh, for the debate last night:

Why Won’t Obama Talk About Columbia? The years he won’t discuss may explain the Ayers tie he keeps lying about. By Andrew C. McCarthy Barack Obama does not want to talk about Columbia. Not even to his good friends at the New York Times, who’ve so reliably helped him bleach away his past — a past neck-deep in the hard Left radicalism he has gussied up but never abandoned. Why? I suspect it is because Columbia would shred his thin post-partisan camouflage. You might...

Michelle Malkin does some more of the heavy-lifting John McCain is shirking:

SYSTEMIC corruption of our election process continues. Barack Obama and his old friends at ACORN and Project Vote are leading the way. This radical revolution is taking place in your backyard. And as I've reported before, this voter-fraud racket is on your dime.

On Monday, the two groups announced the wrap-up of a 21-state voter-registration drive targeting low-income people and minorities in such battleground states as Ohio, Pennyslvania, Colorado, Florida, New Mexico and Wisconsin.

What's wrong with that? For starters, these two groups are militantly partisan outfits purporting to engage in nonpartisan activity. And their campaign comes amid an avalanche of fresh voter-fraud allegations involving ACORN in many of those same states.

ACORN has helped register over 1.27 million people nationwide. It gets 40 percent of its revenues from the taxpayers, with the rest coming from left-wing heavyweights...

"For a guy who's already authored two memoirs, he's not exactly an open book"  said John McCain of Barack Obama as McCain finally, today, began telling the American people what they need to know about Obama, Fannie Mae and what a "good idea" Obama thought sub prime mortagages were as recently as last year. Too little, too late? I don't think so--so long as he makes a clear, pointed case, relentlessly, no let-up, between now and Election Day: everything America needs to know about Obama--socialism, radicalism, anti-Americanism, ACORN, Ayers, Khalidi, Wright.
