THE DEBATE OVER CURTAILING UNPRECEDENTED DEMOCRATIC FILIBUSTERS of President George W. Bush’s judicial nominees exploded into open warfare this week. On Wednesday MoveOnPAC.org and its left comrades blitzed America with at least 192 rallies in 40+ states and saturated the nation’s airwaves with $500,000 worth of deceptive ads depicting Republicans as crazed rampaging elephants in an effort to intimidate Senators.
But the most surreal moment of this vicious propaganda onslaught by a coalition of far-Left groups (almost all of which are part of the Shadow Party funded by eccentric billionaire George Soros) was a Wednesday speech by former Vice President and failed 2000 Democratic presidential candidate Al Gore.
“This assault on the integrity of our constitutional design has been fueled by a small group claiming special knowledge of God’s will in American politics,” said Gore. “They even claim that those of us who disagree with their point of view are waging war against ‘people of faith.’ How dare they?”
“On a visit to San Francisco in the early 1980s, [Al Gore] told Diane Kefauver Rubin that God sometimes talked to him,” reported veteran ABC reporter Bob Zelnick in his biography Gore: A Political Life,
“That frightens me in a political person,” Zelnick recounted Rubin saying about Gore’s claim of divine communication.
Some enterprising reporter should ask Mr. Gore: “What has God told you? Which god or goddess was it? Do you believe you are on a mission from this god or goddess? Would you follow a command that this god gave you? Is this deity that talks with you Gaia, the ancient Greek pagan Earth Mother goddess of environmentalists like yourself?”
Gore was briefly a student at Vanderbilt University’s Divinity School in Nashville following his months of intense marijuana use while, as a U.S. Senator's son, he was stationed far away from combat in Vietnam.
Gore soon turned from God to journalism, then to the profession of his father who raised his elitist son as Prince Albert, a boy told from infancy that his destiny was someday to rule America. Al Gore clearly has never exorcised this ambition, as his return to the spotlight this week demonstrated.
Jesus turned down an offer from the ultimate boss of the Shadow Party to become ruler of the world (see Matthew 4:8-10), but Al Gore is no Jesus. Gore seems more than eager to dance in whatever way the puppet strings of the Shadow Party pull him to keep his political aspirations alive.
George Soros, the master puppeteer and Daddy Warbucks behind this week’s demonic war against Republicans, like Gore has a chilling history of megalomania. What follows are excerpts from Parts One and Two of Rachel Ehrenfeld’s and Shawn Macomber’s eye-opening FrontPageMagazine investigation “The Man Who Would Be Kingmaker”:
“If truth be known, I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood, which I felt I had to control, otherwise they might get me in trouble,” Soros once wrote. When asked to elaborate on that passage by The Independent, Soros said, “It is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of God, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.”
Soros' attempts at self-exposition can get pretty creepy at times, like in this passage from Underwriting Democracy: “I feel I must maintain a separation between myself and my persona. Without it I and my persona would be endangered…I hold my persona in high regard, from both a subjective and an objective point of view.”
“Next to my fantasies about being God, I also have very strong fantasies of being mad,” Soros once confided on British television. “In fact, my grandfather was actually paranoid. I have a lot of madness in my family. So far I have escaped it.”
This is the same George Soros who, as David Horowitz and Richard Poe document in their book The Shadow Party (2004, Center for the Study of Popular Culture), met with the millionaire founder of MoveOn.org on September 17, 2003, and has largely funded this far-left organization ever since.
The leaders of MoveOn.org, who marshaled this week’s frantic assault on Republicans, have their own delusions of grandeur and divinity. In a December 9, 2004 email to his group’s financial supporters, MoveOn PAC director Eli Pariser wrote these now-famous words about the just-defeated Democratic Party: “Now it’s our party: we bought it, we own it,” because of “more than $300 million” raised from Shadow Party fat cats and mechanisms that went into the Democratic Party campaigns.
Al Gore apparently agrees, seeing the real power in the upcoming presidential election year 2008 as Soros’ Shadow Party and bending his knee to serve the Dark Side of the Force.
Listen carefully and you can hear the hidden Shadow Party message behind Mr. Gore’s ranting this week against those he smears as “right wing religious extremists.” Truth be told, to a left-wing extremist like Mr. Gore who believes God speaks to him, or to a megalomaniac like Mr. Soros with “messianic…fantasies about being God,” anyone with a contrary religious or moral view is unacceptable.
What we see playing out this week is not a war between secular and religious people. It is a struggle by left-wing religious zealots who want to keep the power to impose their morality on all the rest of us through continued control of the nation’s judges.
It is leftists such as Al Gore and George Soros who, in violation of the U.S. Constitution, are imposing a religious test for public office. Such leftists now demand anyone who is a devout Roman Catholic, Orthodox Jew, or other believer whose faith upholds the sanctity of life must automatically be disqualified to be a federal judge. Who, then, are the religious bigots in this debate?
These leftists demand to have a minority veto power, contrary to the U.S. Constitution, on any and all federal judicial appointments. This is what they mean when defending the unprecedented use of the Senate filibuster to block judicial nominees who would win confirmation if given a full Senate vote. The filibuster has a tainted past used to block voting rights for African-Americans and to stifle the democratic votes of the majority.
We need to remember that Al Gore’s father, a U.S. Senator from Tennessee, voted against Civil Rights legislation in the early 1960s. And this Wednesday Prince Al spoke in the vilest, most dishonest terms against one of President Bush’s judicial nominees, the first black female to serve on California’s Supreme Court. The Gore racist gene lives on in Prince Al, as it does in the political party of the slaveowners, of the Ku Klux Klan and its former Grand Kleagle Senator Robert Byrd, of Jim Crow and Bull Connor – the still-racist Democratic Party.
Will these left-wing bigots prevail, backed as they are by the money of a George Soros who spent at least $27 million in 2004 to oust President Bush because, wrote Soros, Mr. Bush was making America “too powerful in the world”? Soros would prefer a weaker America, one more easily brought to its knees in a political (but not religious) sense.
We now know that Shadow Party millions from leftwing foundations were able to conjure a fraudulent “astroturf” simulation of a genuine grass roots uprising in behalf of campaign finance reform. And we know that the legislation lawmakers were thus conned into supporting had the effect of stifling the voices of ordinary Americans while amplifying the political clout of billionaire leftists like Soros. The Shadow Party eclipsed the light of truth on this issue, and our democracy is weaker because of it.
Democrats again seem determined to manipulate or block the voting rights of lawmakers representing the will of a growing conservative majority of people in our democratic republic.
It’s time the Democratic Party was told by the Federal Trade Commission that it must stop using this deceptive name if its policies continue to oppose democracy at every turn. As truth in advertising, Democrats should be required to wear a warning label identifying them as representing the Anti-Democratic Party.
And it’s time to remind religious bigots like Al Gore, George Soros, and MoveOn.org that one of the defining qualities that separates democracy from Pox Voculi elitists like themselves is this: Vox Populi, Vox Dei.
