"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. All who rage against you will surely be ashamed and disgraced; those who oppose you will be as nothing and perish." (Isaiah 41:10-11)

Big Ketchup

The term plays on the way that liberal activists refer to large corporations; e.g., Big Oil or Big Tobacco. However, Heinz is known to contribute more to conservatives, and did not give John Kerry any donations in 2004, and it was found Heinz officials contribute to Republican causes, and not Democratic causes. One former Board of Directors member (Lynn Swann) is a Republican candidate for Governor in Pennsylvania.

Foghorn Leghorn
Former United States Senator from South Carolina Fritz Hollings.
Forehead, the
Paul Begala, former Clinton counselor and co-host of CNN's Crossfire.
For those of you in Rio Linda or Palm Beach County
This phrase is often used by Limbaugh as an introduction to an explanation of somewhat complicated subjects (and sometimes even simple subjects), insinuating that the listenership in Rio Linda, California is not very bright. This practice began after Limbaugh drove through Rio Linda and saw trash and cars on cinder blocks in front yards and he sarcastically stereotyped the residents as ignorant hillbillies needing extra help to understand concepts. Since the Florida butterfly ballot controversy during the 2000 Presidential Election, Limbaugh has also used West Palm Beach instead of or in addition to Rio Linda.

Limbaugh's fingers, referring to his former cigarette-smoking habit. (Limbaugh still smokes cigars.)

Helmet Head

Hillary Rodham Rodham
Former US First Lady and current US Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY). This name coined when Clinton demanded that the press use her maiden name in all references to her after her husband Bill Clinton was elected to the US Presidency in 1992. Limbaugh has since used this to imply that Clinton has been politically campaigning for US Presidency ever since 1992, at the expense of nominally estranging her from her husband. Limbaugh claims (tongue-in-cheek) that he uses the double Rodham to help publicize Ms. Clinton's maiden name to the press.
Hillary Rotten Rodman Clinton
Former US First Lady and current US Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY). This nickname recalls Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders' malapropism in which she referred to Clinton as Hillary Rotten Rodman Clinton.

Illustrating absurdity by being absurd
A tactic Limbaugh uses to lampoon many of the tenets of liberalism. Limbaugh takes a liberal tenet and pretends to believe either the tenet itself or some analogous belief, trying to demonstrate the ridiculous nature of the belief. See reductio ad absurdum.
It's not the nature of the evidence; it's the seriousness of the charge.
A quotation that Limbaugh often uses to illustrate a tactic that he says is commonly used by liberals. Republicans or prominent conservatives are accused of grave crimes or scandals with little or no evidence of wrongdoing, and the magnitude of the accusation is used to deflect criticism of investigating unsubstantiated charges. The subject is politically damaged by the fact of an investigation without necessarily having done anything wrong. This quotation dates back to the accusation made by opponents of the nomination of Clarence Thomas to be Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court in 1991. He was accused of sexual harassment of Anita Hill.
Jack the Dripper
Dr. Jack Kevorkian, an outspoken and controversial advocate of physician-assisted suicide. The moniker is a play on words referring both to the serial killer known as Jack the Ripper, and the intravenous "suicide machine" Kevorkian devised and employed. Limbaugh has also referred to Kevorkian as "Dr. Death."
Jean Francois Kerry
2004 Democratic US presidential candidate Senator John Kerry (D-MA). Limbaugh uses the French analog of his first and middle name to mock Kerry's alleged elitist views and ancestral ties to French royalty.[2]
John Effing Kerry
2004 Democratic US presidential candidate Senator John Kerry (D-MA). Limbaugh uses the nickname to mock Kerry's use of the word fuck in a Rolling Stone interview. It also serves to mock Kerry's use of his middle initial F. to emphasize a nominal similarity between John F. Kerry and John F. Kennedy.
WASHINGTON (AP) December 7, 2003 ...John Kerry used profane language to assess President Bush's Iraq policy, and Bush's chief of staff said Sunday the Democratic presidential candidate was out of line. The Massachusetts senator uttered a profanity in an interview in the latest Rolling Stone magazine to express his dismay over Bush's handling of Iraq. When asked in the interview about the success of rival candidate Howard Dean, whose anti-war message has resounded with supporters, Kerry responded: When I voted for the war, I voted for what I thought was best for the country. Did I expect Howard Dean to go off to the left and say, `I'm against everything?' Sure. Did I expect George Bush to f--- it up as badly as he did? I don't think anybody did.
John Filibuster Kerry
2004 Democratic US presidential candidate Senator John Kerry (D-MA). Limbaugh adopted this nickname once the New York Times called the Democratic Party on the carpet to filibuster the vote on Judge Samuel Alito. Kerry, obviously responding to the Times editorial, made an appearance the same day and boldly promised a filibuster.
John Kerry, who by the way served in Vietnam
2004 Democratic US presidential candidate Senator John Kerry (D-MA). Limbaugh used this phrase to make parody of Kerry's apparent zeal to mention as often as possible that he served in the Vietnam War. This phrase is also commonly used by James Taranto in his Best of the Web Today column on OpinionJournal.
John Squid Kerry
2004 Democratic US presidential candidate Senator John Kerry (D-MA). The nickname started being used after it was learned that Kerry was eating squid with his back turned away from the TV at a Washington D.C. restaurant during President George W. Bush's speech after Hurricane Katrina. Kerry's camp criticized the speech, but he was purportedly still at the restaurant after the speech ended and the criticism came out.
Jumpin' Jim Jeffords
Senator Jim Jeffords (I-VT). Jeffords, elected as a Republican in 2000, left the Republican party in 2001 to become an independent and announced his intention to caucus with the Democratic Party. This effectively passed control of the Senate to the Democratic party, which they retained until the next Congress was inaugurated on January 3, 2003.

testicle lockbox

The Epitome of Morality and Virtue
Posterboy for the American Way of Life
Lover of Mankind, Protector of Motherhood, Supporter of Fatherhood (in most cases), and General All Round Good Guy

"Duck Soup" Liberals

The Secret Truth about DNC Political Theater: "If you don't read, watch, or listen to the Liberal Media, then you are UNINFORMED. If you do read, watch, or listen to the Liberal Media, then you are MISINFORMED."


The word “canard” (French for duck) refers to a deliberately false story. It seems to apply aptly to the preposterous reporting by a Liberal, “Duck Soup” Media known for ethical disregard, intellectual buffoonery, and political cynicism in time of crisis. A very famous quote by Rufus T. Firefly [Groucho Marx] in “Duck Soup” (1933) accurately represents the public policy position of Liberals on National Security. As the movie quotation indicates, “Duck Soup” Liberals have no respect for the heavy sacrifice required of military personnel.

"And remember, while you're out there risking life and limb through shot and shell, we'll be in here thinking what a sucker you are!"

Most Liberals attempt to conceal their left-wing extremism. They pretend to be humane and moderate, but advocate an insane, radical agenda. Fortunately, Liberals can’t fool all of the people all of the time. As a practical matter, how does one identify members of the extremist, lunatic fringe while they pretend to be reasonable and respectable? James Whitcomb Riley (1849-1916) offered the best advice.

“When I see a bird that walks like a duck and swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, I call that bird a duck.”

A Nuclear Iran Means World War III.

If we don't act decisively against Iran,

then Iran will act decisively against us.

- - -

I'm a real estate broker in the state of Connecticut. I'm located about sixty miles northeast of New York City. I used to be in the U.S. Navy. I've been to the Indian Ocean and the Persian Gulf. I joined because I wanted to challenge the Iranians after the American hostages were taken into captivity.

Some people believe that God will stop a war between Muslims, Jews, and Christians. Remember, Islam is not so much a religion as it is an extremely intolerant, violent, and despotic POLITICAL SYSTEM. Will God tolerate an inhuman political system? Did God tolerate slavery in the United States during the nineteenth century?

The Civil War occurred between 1861 and 1865. Abraham Lincoln quoted Psalm 19:9 in the Old Testament during his second Inaugural Address. He said that "the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether." About six hundred thousand (600,000) people died in the Civil War. So you see that God might not choose to avert a global nuclear conflict. Humanity might suffer the consequences of "His terrible swift sword."

As Benjamin Netanyahu said, Iran is Germany and this is 1938. Islamic Fascism will cause a global military conflict. However, be assured that a Nuclear Iran will suffer worse consequences then did Germany between 1939 and 1945. Millions will die. World War Three might be far worse than World War Two.

The United States might seem like a "paper tiger" because of the Liberal Democrats in the U.S. Congress. However, we are a paper tiger who will use nuclear weapons against Iran if provoked. Don't forget that we didn't hesitate to use them against Imperial Japan. We will have the political will to defeat Iran by ANY means necessary.

During the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962, John F. Kennedy warned the USSR that ANY missile launched from Cuba against ANY country in the Western Hemisphere would be considered as an attack by the Soviet Union against the United States, requiring a FULL-RETALIATORY RESPONSE upon the Soviet Union.

If Iran attacks Israel with nuclear weapons, then we will annihilate Iran without hesitation. Do not underestimate our resolve to punish Iran preemptively for such provocative aggression. We will annihilate Iran and anybody else who conspires with them. The Iranians (i.e., Persians) are extremely prideful. Their arrogance in a nuclear world will cause their complete annihilation.

In the end, it won't be "Death to Israel" or "Death to America." It will be "Death to Iran" because Iranians had pursued the extremist agenda of a suicidal religious CULT. These circumstances bear striking similarity to the circumstances in NAZI Germany. Remember that the terms "Jihad" and "Mein Kampf" both mean "My Struggle." History is about to repeat itself. The world might suffer the consequences of "His terrible swift sword."

"Iran Can Still Be Stopped" by Benjamin Netanyahu

Iran can still be stopped

Webmaster Date published: 18/12/2006

By Benjamin Netanyahu

December 14, 2006

Under the Olmert government Israel is rapidly veering toward an unprecedented political and security collapse, while Iran rushes to develop nuclear weapons. The leaders of Iran brazenly deny the first Holocaust, as they work feverishly to bring on a second one.

Israel can now be likened to the proverbial bus speeding uncontrollably towards the abyss, with the bus driver worn-out, confused and helpless.

Let´s examine some recent developments which all share one common feature – the weak leadership of Israel´s present government:

1. Hezbollah and Hamas are rapidly rearming as a result of the Olmert government's decision not to act against them. Dozens of Kassam rockets have struck Sderot and the western Negev since the cease-fire in Gaza was declared. The government continues to refrain from response.

2. US Secretary of Defense Bob Gates stated recently that an Iranian nuclear attack on Israel cannot be ruled out and that the United States will act against Iran as a last resort only. These troubling statements raise doubts as to whether the United States truly intends to stop Iran in its bid to acquire nuclear weapons.

3. The Baker-Hamilton report calls for American negotiations with Iran and Syria in order to extricate American forces from Iraq. Although the report does not reflect the Bush administration's policy on Iraq, it encourages a fundamental shift in US policy on Iran: from isolation to engagement. Engagement and dialogue hardly conform with a policy of severe sanctions to stop Iran´s nuclear program.

4. The Baker report also argues that an Israeli-Palestinian agreement is a prerequisite for solving the remaining problems in the Middle East. This is an obvious attempt at linkage: if only Israel would make more territorial concessions to the Palestinians, the Iraq and Iran problems would be solved. In reality, it´s the other way around. Once we stop the nuclear program of Iran – which Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh called "the strategic backbone of Hamas" - it will be far easier to solve the conflict with the Palestinians and Syria.

What can we learn from these developments? How are they connected?

Weakness attracts pressure.

The weakness of Olmert´s government is causing a continuous deterioration in Israel's position in the Middle East and the world.

If the government of Israel accepts daily rocket fire Israeli towns, why should the rest of the world respond any differently? When the Olmert government reacts pusillanimously to the flagrant declarations of Iran´s president to wipe Israel off the map, why should the rest of the world act against him?

In their report, Baker and Hamilton give their view of Israel´s present leadership: "The vast majority of the Israeli body politic is tired of being a nation perpetually at war." Regrettably, Mr. Olmert himself echoed this fatigue in a speech he gave last year in New York to the Israel Policy Forum on June 9, 2005, significantly one year before the fumbled Second Lebanon War: "We are tired of fighting, we are tired of being courageous, we are tired of winning, we are tired of defeating our enemies" When Israel´s prime minister projects such fatigue and feebleness, is it any wonder the rest of the world attributes such notions to Israel as a whole?

This must be changed. The overriding principle that should guide us is not weakness but strength. The key to ensuring the existence of Israel lies in continuously building our national power. If you live in a tough and violent neighborhood, you must be strong to survive. The State of Israel must thus focus its efforts on bolstering its power, and it must begin as soon as possible. I shall have more to say about this at a later date. Now we must concentrate on one urgent task: Stopping Iran from developing nuclear weapons.

This requires action along two parallel efforts:

a. The Diplomatic-Public Relations Effort:

We must undertake an intensive public opinion campaign focusing primarily on the United States. Our goal should be to vigorously encourage President Bush to live up to his explicit pledge not to allow Iran to arm itself with nuclear weapons. We must make it clear to the US Administration, the Congress and the American people that a nuclear Iran constitutes a threat not just to Israel but to the United States and the entire world. The top priority of the free world should be clearly set: preventing radical Islamic regimes from acquiring nuclear weapons.

b. The Independent Israeli Defense Effort:

Notwithstanding this international effort, Israel must make all the necessary preparations to defend itself by itself. The government of Israel must harness all national resources to this supreme goal. The prime minister must direct the Mossad, the IDF and the other security services, as well as the authorities responsible for civil defense, to act summarily under a national master plan aimed at removing this existential threat. The prime minister must personally monitor the progress of this plan on a daily basis. He must not let up for a moment and he must not delegate this responsibility to anyone else.

On his recent visit to Washington Mr. Olmert rightfully announced that Israel could not accept nuclear weapons in Iran. Yet his actions do not live up to his words. In reality, the current Israeli government lacks direction and leadership. While Iran tenaciously and steadily moves forward with its nuclear program, the Israeli government is preoccupied with creating "agendas" for the media (e.g., the initiative for changing the election system) or with announcing superfluous and dangerous plans, such as Mr. Olmert´s recently announced plan to give up more territory to the Palestinians that will only be used later as launching sites for more Iranian missiles.

It is time for the prime minister of Israel to put the task of ensuring our survival above all else. If he does, I can guarantee him that my colleagues and I will provide him with unwavering support in confronting the Iranian threat, just as we did during the war in Lebanon this past summer. But if Mr. Olmert fails to rise to the task, he must step down immediately and clear the way for a leadership that will ensure our survival and our future.
