ARE THE DEMOCRATS READY TO PROTECT THIS COUNTRY, OR NOT?

by Mark5019 / September 7, 2006 11:10 PM PDT

A little drama is also unfolding in Washington over the National Security Agency's wiretap program. Careful attention to this drama clearly shows that Democrats are much more consumed by their hatred of George Bush, and their desire to return to power inside the Beltway, than they are over the threat of future Islamic terrorist attacks on our country.

There is a proposal to take the 29 lawsuits that now exist against the wiretap program and have the FISA court (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) decide whether the wiretaps were legal or not. Now this sounds like a reasonable approach, does it not? The lawsuits, filed by Democrats and leftist groups, claim that the wiretaps were illegal. They file 29 different lawsuits. Here comes a proposal to take all 29 fact situations and present them to a duly constituted court, as well as to the Justice Department, to see if they pass muster .... and the Democrats say no.

Why do Democrats oppose this proposal? Because they're afraid. They're afraid that the FISA Court might actually rule that the wiretaps were absolutely legal in the first place, that no law was broken. To the Democrats it is more important to carry on their demonization of George Bush than it is to join with the rest of this country in fighting Islamic fascism and protecting our homeland. The return to power in Congress and the White House is Democrat job number one. We're left to wonder where on that list they've place the defense of our country and the safety of our citizens from Islamic terrorist attack.

Yesterday ...after the Democrats succeeded in turning aside Arlen Specter's proposal to submit the 29 lawsuits to the Justice Department and the FISA court, Democrat Senate Leader Harry Reid, standing alongside Hillary Clinton, actually stood before a press conference and said that it is the Republicans who are playing politics with national security.

The Democrats don't want a court to review the 29 wiretap lawsuits because they're afraid that the courts will side with the president, and its the Republicans who are playing politics with national security. Who's writing this stuff for them, Larry the Cable Guy?

Then the 2008 Democrat presidential candidate makes here appearance ... none other than Hillary Clinton herself! Hillary is there to present the great Democrat six-point plan for defending America.

very interesting

Typical partisan hatchet job, Mark.

And let me ask you this fundamental question -- if we're not a nation of laws, what's the difference between us and Russia, China, or Korea? Bush, gonzslez et al. would destroy America to save it, much like that infamous colonel's oxymoron about a village in South VietNam.

And what part of "illegal immigrant" do you not understand. Seems there are those that the laws of the nation apply to and those that they do not apply to.

Why won't the Dems and possible future President H.Clinton allow the 29 cases to be reviewed and judged upon by this Justice Department and the FISA court?

This IS a partisan hatchet job, DK....and it's NOT the Reps doing it.

do you never run out?

Show me where Bush, et al have broken the laws or compromised them. It's nonsense.

Pure slander to say they are destroying America.

Considering your opinion that laws can be enforced selectively depending on how you feel about them, your commment is rather hypocritical.

I agree! The Democrat claims & objections are pure BS!

It's too bad the Dems won't fight as hard for the country as they do for their power, perks, bennies, and payoffs.

FISA is establsihed by those laws you cite
by dirtyrich / September 8, 2006 1:06 AM PDT

and is fully empowered by those laws to judge matters such as the wiretaps. Your post reveals how little you either 1-care or 2-know about US law.

Maybe since you're asking a "fundamental" question, you should go back and study your fundamentals before you take a position. Nothing more sad than an individual standing up for something he knows so little about.

Dave, you said, "Typical partisan hatchet job, Mark". In the thread about the ABC 9/11 show you said, "Another partisan hatchet job". Is this your new all-purpose buzz phrase?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
