Fred Thompson’s Pan-Islamist Campaign Manager

July 27, 2007

As per Debbie Schlussel:

Don’t believe Thompson’s claim that he understands the Islamist jihadist threat to America. His announcement, yesterday, of his choice of Spencer Abraham as campaign manager, told us everything we need to know. Although Abraham, of Lebanese descent, is a Christian, he is a career water carrier for Islamists of the most extremist stripe and made that the cornerstone of his failed, one-term Senate career and equally lousy tenure as Energy Secretary.

As a Senator, he took marching orders from James Zogby of the pan-Islamist Arab American Institute, opposing profiling of Arabs, the use of secret evidence against Muslims (at the behest of Muslim groups), attempting to repeal the Clinton counterterrorism package, refusing to fund computer tracking of student and other foreign aliens, giving millions in our tax money right to Hezbollah, and putting CAIR on the map on Capitol Hill (taking the group’s officials around to meet other Senators and Members of Congress). He took campaign contributions from the relatives of Hezbollah-backed top Lebanese officials after he got the group millions in our tax money.

Spence was one of only two Senators in the entire U.S. Senate who refused to sign a letter calling on President Clinton to condemn Palestinian terrorism and Yasser Arafat. This was at the height of a series of homicide bombings in Israel in 1999 and 2000.

Michelle Malkin adds that besides being an Islamist sympathyzer, Spencer Abraham is also an Open Borders advocate:

In my 2002 book Invasion (p. 71, 76), I noted the open-borders obstructionism of former Sen. Spencer Abraham (R-Michigan), who fought to block the implementation of two different tracking databases–one for foreign student visa holders and the other for all temporary visitors (which was mandated by Section 110 of the 1996 Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act). Abraham led efforts to starve the first database of funding and crusaded several times to kill Section 110 altogether. On September 11, 2001, neither of those databases was in place. To this day, they remain incomplete.

Conservatives, Beware of Fred Thompson

July 10, 2007

This thoroughly researched article by Richard Viguerie sums up what conservatives can expect from Fred Dalton Thompson were he to become the next president. Here is an excerpt:

 

Conservatives who look to Thompson for salvation need to pause and consider his record—a record that includes these votes:

 

FOR restricting the rights of grassroots organizations to communicate with the public. See ACU’s vote 3, 1998.

 

FOR allowing the IRS to require political and policy organizations to disclose their membership—a vote against the constitutional rights of free association and privacy. (The Clinton Administration used such IRS intimidation against conservative groups that opposed them.) See ACU’s vote 11, 2000.

 

AGAINST impeachment proceedings against President Clinton, specifically the reappointment and reauthorization of managers (drawn from the Republican membership of the House Judiciary Committee) to conduct the impeachment trial in the Senate. See ACU’s vote 1, 1999.

 

AGAINST an accelerated elimination of the “marriage penalty.” See ACU’s vote 10, 2001.

 

FOR handouts to politicians, specifically taxpayer funding of presidential campaigns. See ACU’s vote 6, 1995.

 

FOR handouts to politicians, specifically congressional perks such as postage and broadcast time funded by taxpayers. See ACU’s vote 13, 1996.

 

AGAINST restraints on federal spending, specifically the Phil Gramm (R-TX) amendment to limit non-defense discretionary spending to the fiscal 1997 levels requested by President Clinton. See ACU’s vote 6, 1997.

 

FOR affirmative action in federal contracts. See ACU’s vote 9, 1995.

 

FOR the Legal Services Corporation, the perennial liberal boondoggle that provides political activism disguised as “legal services” to Democratic constituencies. See ACU’s vote 16, 1995, and vote 17, 1999.

 

FOR an increase in the minimum wage, which, of course, increases unemployment among the young and poor. See ACU’s vote 16, 1996.

 

FOR President Clinton’s nomination of Dr. David Satcher as U.S. Surgeon General. Among other things, Satcher opposed a full ban on partial-birth abortion. See ACU’s vote 1, 1998.

 

FOR open-ended military commitments, specifically in regard to U.S. troops in Kosovo. See ACU’s vote 8, 2000.

 

FOR corporate welfare, specifically the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC). See ACU’s vote 23. 1999.

 

AGAINST worker and shareholder rights, specifically the Hatch (R-UT) amendment to require unions and corporations to obtain permission from dues-paying members or shareholders before spending money on political activities. See ACU’s votes 4 and 5, 2001.

 

AGAINST property rights and FOR unlimited presidential power, specifically by allowing President Clinton to implement the American Heritage Rivers Initiative, which he established by executive order, without congressional approval. See ACU’s vote 20, 1997.

 

FOR restricting the First Amendment (free speech) rights of independent groups. See ACU’s vote 23, 1997.

 

FOR the trial lawyers lobby, and specifically against a bill that would put common-sense limitations on the medical malpractice suits that increase health costs for all of us. (Of course! He’s been a trial lawyer himself for some three decades.) See ACU’s vote 18, 2002.

 

And, last but not least:

 

FOR limitations on campaign freedom of speech, by limiting contributions to national political parties to $2,000 and limiting the rights of individuals and groups to participate in the political process in the two months before elections. See ACU’s vote 7, 2002.

Will Thompson’s Anti-Semitic roles turn him into an easy Target?

June 13, 2007

While the Conservatives Against Fred Thompson don’t hold Fred Dalton Thompson’s movie roles against him personally we are concerned by recent developments in the political landscape (ie. George Allen “macaca” episode) that point to a growing intolerance of any hint of racism connected to those who seek higher office.

Fred Dalton Thompson played a White Supremacist character bent on demonizing the Jewish folk and who disparagingly referred to blacks as “mud people”. At one point he is shown attending a neonazi rally where he is presented with a copy of Mein Kampf in a scene where he is visibly touched and shows a great depth of emotion.

Predictably, the opposition is already sharpening its knives.

The Conservatives Against Fred Thompson present Knox Pooley:

 

In another movie role that can be the cause of ridicule in some circles, Fred Dalton Thompson played an aging Superman:
