"THE REPUIBLICANS HAVE A PLAN---AND IT IS CALLED FEAR"




Terrorism plots are back in the news. Threats from around the world are being hyped---especially threats that though "sexy"---like North Korea---aren't really threats at all, WHILE REAL THREATS LIKE THE REEMERGENCE OF THE TALIBAN IN AFGHANASTAN AND ISLAMIC EXTREMISTS TAKING OVER SOMALIA ARE NEVER MENTIONED. Too, there are more FALSE CLAIMS OF WMD HAVING BEEN DISCOVERED IN IRAQ.

It was WMD that the Department of Defense and experts have said were so old---leftover from the 1980s---as not to be harmful and were not the WMD Bush claimed as his reason for invading Iraq. NONETHELESS, IT IS WMD BEING SOLD TO GOP VOTERS BY THE LIKES OF HANNITY AND LIMBAUGH AS "PROOF" SADDAM HAD MASSIVE STOCKPILES OF, AND AN ONGOING WMD PROGRAM.

***Anybody who buys this crap is really stupid and are being used by the GOP. If they believe it, then they deserve it.

What does it mean? It means it's an election year and, therefore, BUSH AND REPUBLICANS NEED TO INSTILL FALSE FEAR AND OUTRIGHT LIE IN ORDER TO TRICK VOTERS INTO SUPPORTING THEM.

Since election 2004, America had faced few terrorist related threats. Suddenly, now that campaign 2006 is underway And Republicans are trailing in the polls, barely a day passes without a new threat of some sort being blared across the airwaves. THE THREATS ARE MAGNIFIED AND OVER-HYPED BY THE MEDIA IN A MANNER DESIGNED TO INSTILL FEAR IN THE HEARTS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

One week Iran is the face of "evil." The next it is Zarqawi. Then it is an amorphous thing called "homegrown terrorism," which was highlighted through the arrest of seven hapless fools in Miami. Suddenly the danger shifts and it is Norh Korea misfiring several harmless missiles. Yet, before the public can breathe a non-anxious breath, a plot to blowup tunnels in New York City is discovered and reported.

The problems with the so-called plot in New York are glaring: It had been reported that they want to contact Zarqawi, but there was no proof that they ever had. They, like the Miami terror-scare seven, were more "aspirational than operational." The FBI would like America to believe and you can bet Americans do, that these latest "terrorists" were going to flood New York City. Okay---first to do what it is claimed they wished to do, they would have had to drive a haul-pack (huge mining dump-truck sized load of explosives through the city. Then and here is the kicker---they would have been no flooding because water can't flow uphill. The river is lower than Manhattan...figure it out.

Just for good measure, however, the FBI is pretending not to be happy about the New York plot being made public because it may hamper their ability to capture all the people involved. The agency spoke of punishing whoever leaked the plot to the press.

Here is the question: When it is discovered that either Karl Rove or another GOP political operative or politician was responsible for the leak, will the FBI punish them? Or will they only punish the person if they are not linked to the Bush administration? Who knows, maybe Bush or Cheney "declassified" the information so Rove or another could "legally" release the information.

THE REPUBLICAN STRATEGY OF DIVIDING THE NATION WHILE INSPIRING THEIR BASE THROUGH "CULTURE WAR" ISSUES HAS FAILED. Word has leaked out that Rove intends to run a national "Swift Boat" campaign in any district that might be close. Bush has already said Republicans will hold onto both Houses of Congress---apparently not concerned about what voters might decide.

THE GOP STRATEGY IS CLEAR: The "culture war" is no longer a winner...it is time to strike the fear of "evil" back into the hearts of the American people. It is time for dire threats that aren't threats to be hyped in the media and it is time for terrorism threats to emerge on a weekly, if not daily basis.

AMERICA, BE AFRAID---IT IS ELECTION YEAR 2006 AND THE REPUBLICANS HAVE A PLAN: STRIKING FEAR IN THE HEART OF EVERY AMERICAN.
