A President Must Have Credibility

Posted by wordforit on April 8, 2008

Like Don Bendell, I sold cars at a “Fast Track” dealership several years ago. In that five years, I learned much about human nature, including just how far some will go to make a buck or outsell a competitor. There were plenty who would ‘throw anyone in front of the bus’ to feed their greed. 

Don Bendell’s assessment in recognizing razzle-dazzle when someone thinks they are a ‘player’ of sorts are more wise words from those trying to warn the public before we end up with a President lacking patriotism. ~WordforIt

Many years ago, one of the jobs I held as a starving writer was selling cars, new and used, at what was called a “Fast track” dealership. It was straight commission and dog-eat-dog. The top salesman there, Bill, made well over $ 70,000 per year in the early seventies. That was a lot of income back then. It was simple: he smiled, turned on the charm, told every customer exactly what they wanted to hear, and then lied through his teeth.

I once overheard him respond to a customer who asked about a new Ford Pinto if it would get the EPA gas mileage listed on the sticker, and Bill answered with a question, “Is gas mileage what is really important to you?”

The man responded, “Yes, I have to drive many miles to work and back everyday.”

Bill laughed and put his hand on the man’s shoulder and said, “Man, did you come to the right place. The EPA ratings were done by the government, and you know how they screw things up. This car will actually get you at least 54 miles to the gallon between highway and city driving combined. Probably a lot more”

In actuality, the car would have gotten maybe 24 miles to the gallon. The man, like they all did, bought the car.

Another man’s biggest concern was rust. Ohio salted its roads in the winter, and he did not want his car eaten away. Bill immediately told him that the new Ford Mustangs were made out of recycled aluminum beer cans and would never rust, and he would throw in complete rust-proofing for only $ 285. The man bought the car. We were charged $ 8 by the dealership to rust proof a car, and any amount charged above that was profit, out of which we would get one fourth in commissions. The lies were so outlandish, I could not stand working there and never sold cars again.

Bill could turn on the charm with a smile and a golden tongue, stare into your eyes and ad lib the most outlandish lies I ever heard, and worse yet, people believed it hook, line, and sinker, and he was richly rewarded for the deceit.

It has been over three decades, and I have finally seen another Bill, but on a much grander scale. His name is Barrack Obama. He named his best-selling book after a sermon by his self-proclaimed mentor Reverend Jeremiah Wright, who married him and wife Michelle and baptized their family. He knows that Wright gave an award to Louis Farrakhan, one of the most outlandish racial bigots in America, and the horrific statements from sermons by Wright which are played all day long on the news were taken from his DVD’s sold by Obama’s church where Obama has attended for over 20 years. Barrack Obama claims he never heard Wright make any of the outlandish racist statements. Right! And people believe him! Duh!

Then, we have Hillary Clinton braving sniper fire from the Bosnian tooth fairy. The only difference between the two is that she would not be a good crooked car salesman. She does not even lie well at all.

Which now brings me to John McCain. I could not stand him for years. I testified for the Senate Select Committee on MIA/POW Affairs. John McCain tried to shut the committee down and people started saying he had something to hide. I was one of those who said it and passed some of the rumors that started about him. So, when McCain got the presumptive Republican nod, I wrote former POW’s I knew who were POWs with McCain in the Hanoi Hilton, such as Medal of Honor recipient Colonel Bud Day and asked them.

Bud Day, MOH wrote me and said, in part:

Dear Don: I was JSM’s first room-mate and commander in the Hanoi Hilton. He is brilliant, patriotic, loyal, gregarious, independent, feisty, a good follower, a good leader, republican….”

Bud finished with

“He does not have to have everyone’s approval to act. There is a lot of Ronald Reagan..Teddy Roosevelt…Harry Truman in his genes. Example…telling Reagan to get out of Lebanon. Telling GW, the SecDef, and the world that Rumsfeld policies were a failure…backing the surge (like from Vietnam) as the only correct choice….and being right both times.

“His combat experience and life experiences make him the solid choice for prez. John is clearly and unquestionably the best candidate in 2008…of either party, Best regards. Col. Bud Day, MOH.”

Paul Galanti gave me very similar raves about him, and Jim Warner, John McCain’s longtime cellmate and still very close friend and advisor, not only wrote me but has spoken to me on the phone several times, and he said,

“Don, if John had any hidden secrets from our time in the Hanoi Hilton or if any of the other rumors about him are true, simply tell me why are there 81 former Vietnam POW’s voluntarily working on his campaign?”

I learned that John McCain simply believed very strongly that there were no more live POW’s left behind, and he believed that as strongly as I believed that there were. But the important point is that he does not fold, and he does not lie to get someone’s vote.

John McCain stands his ground if he feels he is right. He also has faced down Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, and other Republican pundits because he is willing to work with Democrats and actually listen to their point of view. America clearly wants that in our President.

If ever there was a time in US history we need such a person in the White House, it is right now. We need someone with credibility, a quiet strength, and a total determination to stay the course on our national defense; because our pampered nation that now has way too many quick-fix wimps will perish if we don’t. The mullahs and jihadists do not want to be our buddies no matter how much we might suck up to them. They want our heads. The only body parts John McCain will give them is our collective middle finger.

For as much as we hear and read about John McCain’s military contribution in a negative light, here is a writer who went to the trouble of seeking answers from those who served with John McCain! I, for one, am glad to know the rumors of his betrayal are false; it’s bad enough to face war as a country, but even worse to think we don’t have loyal soldiers. ~ WordforIt

                               ____________________

Much like the Titanic that sank on April 15, 1912, the United States stands at a critical juncture in the history of our nation. Few realize it, but, like the Titanic, this nation smashed into a piece of legislation in 1965 that was never asked for or approved by the American public.

In 1965, our ‘Captain’ Lyndon B. Johnson along with helmsman Senator Teddy Kennedy drove America into an ‘iceberg’ of massive, unrestricted immigration that opened up the flood gates with the ‘Immigration Reform Act’. At first, the flow of one million immigrants annually wasn’t noticed. We were benevolent. Our country was big. There was plenty of room and resources.

However, the massive flow of humanity from that hit is still pouring into our country 38 years later and few seem to notice–much like the party-goers and dancing on the Titanic that kept up for hours after hitting the iceberg in the North Atlantic. However, even the invincible Titanic could not survive the onslaught from the constant flow of incoming water–slowly, methodically stealing its ability to stay afloat.

Today in the United States, 70 million immigrants later and pouring in at 2.3 million annually–both legal and illegal–our nation shudders from San Francisco to New York and from Chicago to Miami. We rose from 200 million to nearly 300 million in three decades. What was once a benefit to our country is now a full-scale overpopulation and societal crisis.

From stem to stern, our English language is under assault and our schools are drowning in ethnic violence, rapes, drugs and gang warfare. In California, Texas, Florida and Arizona, our hospitals suffer bankruptcies from non-paid services for 350,000 annual ‘anchor babies’. Ten million illegal immigrants displace jobs from America’s working poor and depress wages for many others. Leprosy, tuberculosis, Chagas Disease, hepatitis and other diseases ‘pour’ into our country within the bodies of illegal immigrants who avoid health screening before coming on board the United States. Even worse, clashing cultures with religions that celebrate ‘female genital mutilation’ and subjugation of women are growing in enclaves around our country. As Lincoln said, “A house divided against itself can not stand.”

On the environmental front, , our leaders are outsourcing and offshoring our jobs to Third World countries while they import the Third World into our country. America’s middle class is being driven into the unemployment lines. Our schools are becoming dysfunctional towers of Babel with over 140 languages. We can not stay afloat with this kind of linguistic chaos. Yes, we have compassion for immigrants, but it’s our country and our children. Their leaders need to take care of them in their countries. Unfortunately, Congress and leadership of this nation refuse to step below the water line to see how fast we are sinking. We’re $6.8 trillion in debt. There were 20 different languages on the California recall ballot. Whose country is this anyway? Our leaders are standing in the wheelhouse totally insulated and isolated from those of us who shovel the coal, build houses, repair cars, teach our kids, drive school busses and plow roads.

We can not save the world, but we can destroy our country if we fail to act.

Like the Titanic that cracked in half before plunging to the depths because no one stopped the incoming water, the United States like all great nations before us, could sink. You can see the signs all around our country. If you look around you, we’re shuddering from bow to aft – from the stacks to the rudder. Who is steering our nation and why are they heading toward more icebergs instead of changing course? What can you do? You are just as much an American patriot as Paul Revere, Betsy Ross, Thomas Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt, Susan B. Anthony, Lincoln and the soldiers from Valley Forge to the Jungles of Vietnam and deserts of Iraq. It’s time to start riding, stitching, writing, charging, demonstrating and fighting for our country within our country. We need to seal our borders against this incursion.

Since our leaders won’t stop this invasion of an ‘unarmed army’ of legal and illegal immigrants, it’s up to you. Our children face a dangerous future if we fail to take action. It wasn’t George Washington who beat the British army. It was every militiaman who shot from fence lines and trees. It wasn’t Ike who won WWII. It was every GI who slung a rifle over his soldier. Susan B. Anthony marched and Dr. Martin Luther King demonstrated. They, in their time, paid the price for defending America so we could enjoy our freedom. This is your time.

Why terrorist scum support the Democrats « MK’s Views – Down under on the right side

Posted by wordforit on March 28, 2008

Why terrorist scum support the Democrats « MK’s Views – Down under on the right side

Al-Qaeda trains its terrorists to resist known interrogation tactics, so the United States has a national-security interest in keeping such tactics secret. Congressional Democrats, however, tried to make the country’s techniques quite literally an open book: They wanted to restrict interrogators to the practices approved in the Army Field Manual, a publicly available document. Fortunately, President Bush vetoed the bill. Democrats are pretending that he acted out of enthusiasm for waterboarding. But that is not the issue: While waterboarding is rough stuff, the United States has not used it in five years, and even then employed the technique on a grand total of three terrorists. Their colleagues should not know what to expect from our interrogators, even if we know all too well what to expect from the Democrats.

MK covers a lot of ground and keeps a resolute watch on events. Click on the link above to read the rest of this post and many others to expand your understanding of international developments!
