America, once again, has had the wool pulled over
it's eyes by Democrats and Media.

Mark Foley is a sleaze ball and there is no excuse for his
perverted behavior, or attempted behavior with Pages, the
extent of which is really still unknown. Let me say first,
right up front, that I didn't want to get into this issue at all
because I find it so disgusting and despicable but because of media
misinformation and propaganda that has fooled even the US Congress,
I feel I have to speak up and expose the truth about what we've all
been seeing and hearing.
Not only is this issue not even about Mark Foley, it didn't
even happen the way the media is reporting it as you will see.
It was a prank by Washington Pages which led to an election campaign
issue by Democrats, and a feeding frenzy by the "drive-by
media". What you see in the media is not always what you get
Democrats are pretending to be so outraged by the actions of
Mark Foley and demanding investigations so that this sort of thing
never happens again, even to the extent of calling for the House
Speaker, Denny Hastert to step down. That's the giveaway right
there and that is what this is really all about. No doubt
Foley is guilty of plenty of wrongdoing and abuse of
his office, but doesn't the same sort of behavior go on
within the Democrat ranks of Congress as well, but never gets
reported in the media?
The real problem here is not the electing of Republicans,
but the electing of homosexuals to public office on either
side. Just like far left liberals, Communists, and alcoholics,
they don't belong there and sooner or later there is going to be
trouble. Congress should be respectable and represent the
vast majority of normal family oriented Americans who support
I said Dems are pretending to be outraged now, but where was
the outrage over Bill Clinton's illicit sex in the Oval Office with
interns, not to mention the alleged rape and attempted rape of
Kathleen Willy, Paula Jones, Anita Broderick, and Jennifer
Flowers? We're not talking cybersex here, we're talking real
sex and not always consensual. Not only was Clinton elected
and reelected to President, but still remains the idol and champion
of the Democratic Party.
Where was the outrage over Gerry Studds - the original "page
turner". He was censured (not fired) and he basically turned
his back on the Congress while they did that. He then
got three standing ovations from his Democrat brethren in
Congress. He was re-elected four times, and only "lost" his
seat when he retired.
Where was the outrage over Democrat Representative Barney
Franks, who didn't get busted sending private messages to his
boy friend - he was busted paying a male prostitute for services. He
was busted while using his elected position of power to clear his
boy friend from his felony past, with convictions for cocaine
possession, oral sodomy and "production of obscene items involving a
juvenile." Again, Democrats across the country ran to defend
Franks and make excuses for his perverted and irresponsible if not
Then there was New Jersey Governor James McGreevey who was
busted cheating on his wife and family with a young male office
assistant, Democrats again rushed to his side to defend his actions
as that of a closet homosexual who did not deserve to be tossed from
office on the basis of his sexual misconduct alone. The kept
him in office until after midterm elections to avoid the chance of
his replacement by a Republican Governor.
And who could forget Ted Kennedy's affair with young
campaign worker, Mary Jo Kopechne, which cost her her life in
the cold waters of the Chappaquiddick River? Were Democrats
outraged over that? No, they continue to reelect Kennedy to
the US Senate even to this day. The double standard
and hypocrisy is astounding, almost laughable if it
weren't having such a profound, negative effect on our
Democrats are never held responsible for their actions or pay a
price for them, while any wrong doing on the part of Republicans, no
matter how small, are immediately dealt with, and the
less-than-honorable are removed from office, often even before the
true facts come out. Democrats refuse to hold their own
responsible, while Republicans are often too quick to jump the gun,
often in the interest of public perception. If Democrats
won't hold their own responsible for their actions then maybe the
Republicans should do it for them, but so far they haven't. In
that perspective, Democrats in Congress are no different than the
people they represent.
But it's not just those examples of a double standard by
Democrats that we need to consider, but the fact that Foley did
nothing that isn't supported and approved of by
Democrats. There wouldn't be a NAMBLA (National Man Boy Love
Association) organization in America without the Democrats and
their legal wing - the ACLU. Democrats promote sex in
schools among children with their constant referrals to the subject
and teaching kids such things as putting condoms on bananas and oral
sex isn't really sex. They support and approve of
homosexuality as a part of their party platform and one of
their financial support groups. What Foley did was
perfectly normal behavior for most homosexuals and the very
kind of liberal behavior that Democrats promote, support, and
seem to want in this country.
Once again, we have Democrats pretending to be outraged over a
Republican behaving like a Democrat. They should be thrilled,
not outraged! Oh yes, I forgot - it's political campaign
season. Time to get out the "Democrat Campaign Play Book"
again and run it page by page.
Page 1: Release previously saved scandalous
material to the media wing of the Democratic party.
Page 2: Exaggerate facts to make it look like
more Republicans are involved than actually are.
Page 3: Claim it's a Republican conspiracy and
cover-up of major proportions.
Page 4: Call for Congressional
hearings and/or investigations.
Page 5: Try to involve Republican leadership
figures in the Conspiracy whenever possible.
Page 6: Call for Republican leaders to resign
(evidence of involvement isn't important).
7: Conduct loaded media polls and report on them
to show that Americans are turning
Page 8: Make the pre-planned poll results
the headline story in the media and on the front page
of the New York Times and Washington Post.
Page 9: Whenever possible, try to involve
the President and his administration in the scandal.
Page 10: Continue the propaganda attacks and
repeat the cycle (1 through 9) until election
We've seen this time and time again over the past several years
and it should come as no surprise to anyone anymore. This is
what the Foley scandal is all about, not about moral ethics in
Congress which Democrats could care less about unless their
own conduct reaches the public through some glitch in the media
or Conservative bloggers. And even then, instead of throwing
the guilty under the bus as the Republicans did with Tom Delay and
Trent Lott, they rush to defend them, as perhaps the Republicans
should sometimes do as well. It's all about using the media to
change public opinion just before an election and we still have
nearly 5 more weeks to go. Expect more scandals or just
charges of scandals from the Democrats who can't run an honest
campaign without basing it on dirt and gossip.
But now the real story of Mark Foley's cyber-encounter with
Pages is starting to come out. First we learn that
there was nothing improper or sexual in the emails that Denny
Hastert's staff learned about Last fall.
Hastert's staff received a complaint from the office of Rep.
Rodney Alexander, a Louisiana Republican, that a former page
Alexander had sponsored received an e-mail from Foley requesting a
photo and asking the 16-year-old what he wanted for his
birthday. Foley was warned by Hastert's Chief of Staff to
refrain from having any close personal contact with Pages and
to "knock it off". There was no mention or evidence of sexual
misconduct or any Instant Messages which we now know did
contain explicit sexual content. Hastert's office
took the proper action under the circumstances.
It turns out that the salacious and
sexual IMs were 3 years old and only now released in the media
during election campaigning. Yesterday it was learned that
the Page involved with Foley is now 21 years old, and was
not 16 as reported by the media, but 18 when the incident
took place. The screen name of the Page was accidentally
released by the ABC website and traced to it's owner, Jordan
Edmund, who was then identified as the Page in the IMs.
Matt Drudge of the Drudge
Report reported the
ABC ONLINE GLITCH LEADS TO IDENTITY OF FOLEY
FAMOUS IM EXCHANGE WAS WITH 18 YEAR
**UPDATE Thu Oct 05 2006 11:54:13 ET
posting on ABCNEWS.COM of an unredacted instant message sessions
between Rep. Mark Foley and a former congressional page has
exposed the identity of the now 21 year-old accuser.
website PASSIONATE AMERICA detailed the startling exposure late
The PASSIONATE AMERICA webmaster tells the
OKLAHOMAN that "he stumbled onto the
former page's AOL screen name when looking at transcripts of the
instant messages on ABC's Web site on Saturday. He said he typed a
slightly-different Web address into his browser and found a
version of the transcript with the screen name.
name of the young man was kept unredacted and housed on
ABCNEWS.COM servers for 5 days!
The information could be
ABC explains in a statement: "On
Friday, ABC News published instant messages between a former page
and Congressman Foley with the IM screen name of the teenage
victim redacted. Immediately, we discovered that in one instance,
the screen name of the teen on one IM exchange had not been
properly redacted. ABC News immediately took down the posting
[version 1], redacted the screen name and re-published the posting
[version 2]. We certainly believed that we had taken care of the
issue quickly. Last evening, after an inquiry from Matt Drudge, it
came to our attention that a blogger was able to access our
deleted file [version 1] by typing in a slightly modified web
address. To be clear, no one visiting our website would have
simply stumbled on the old version."
SEX CHAT WAS WITH 18
On Tuesday ABC news released a high-impact instant
message exchange between Foley and, as ABC explained, a young man
"under the age of 18."
ABC headlined the story: "New Foley
Instant Messages; Had Internet Sex While Awaiting House Vote"
But upon reviewing the records, the DRUDGE REPORT has
learned, the young man was in fact over the age of 18 at the time
of the exchange.
A network source explains, messages with
the young man and disgraced former Congressman Foley took place
before and after the 18th birthday.
Foley's cybersex exchange with a Page, as it turns out, wasn't with
a minor at all, but an adult. And if that wasn't enough to
quell the Democrat's phony outrage, there's more. It turns out
that the whole thing was a prank played by congressional Pages for
laughs. They must have been laughing all night at Mark Foley
after gathering around a computer and holding the reported IM
session with him. Today, Matt Drudge has the following report:
XXXXX DRUDGE REPORT XXXXX THU OCT 5 2006 2:53:48 ET XXXXX
CLAIM: FILTHY FOLEY ONLINE MESSAGES WERE PAGE
PRANK GONE AWRY
the DRUDGE REPORT**
According to two people close to
former congressional page Jordan Edmund, the now famous lurid AOL
Instant Message exchanges that led to the resignation of Mark
Foley were part of an online prank that by mistake got into the
hands of enemy political operatives, the DRUDGE REPORT can
According to one Oklahoma source who knows the
former page very well, Edmund, a conservative Republican,
goaded an unwitting Foley to type embarrassing comments that
were then shared with a small group of young Hill politicos. The
prank went awry when the saved IM sessions got into the hands of
political operatives favorable to Democrats.
source, an ally of Edmund, adamantly proclaims that the former
page is not a homosexual. The prank scenario was confirmed by a
second associate of Edmund. Both are fearful that their
political careers will be affected if they are publicly brought
into the investigation.
The prank scenario only applies to
the Edmund IM sessions and does not necessarily apply to any other
exchanges between the former congressman and others.
news come on the heels that Edmund has hired former Timothy
McVeigh attorney, Stephen Jones.
let's put this all into proper perspective. There is no
question that Mark Foley was engaging in improper conduct, not only
with Jordan Edmund, but with others as well. The extent of
this conduct was not known to the Republican leadership until last
Friday when it began appearing on ABC News and other news sources
according to House Speaker, Dennis Hastert. Foley was asked to
resign, and did, at that time. Case closed, or is it?
What did Democrats on the Page Committee know, and when did they
know it and not report it? Shouldn't that be a part of an
It would be if it were not for one
critical "coincidence". It's election campaign season and
Democrats need something to campaign on. How long have groups
funded by George Soros and Bill Clinton been sitting on these Foley
emails and IM messages, just waiting for election time to release
them? The point here isn't to inform the public of an issue of
importance by the media. It isn't to clean up Congress of
improper behavior by a Congressman. It isn't even an effort to
protect Pages from further abuse. It is
certainly not a coincidence that this news broke now anymore
than the release of Bob Woodward's new book or the out of
context leak by Democrats from the NIE report.
The whole point of this issue is
a part of what has become the normal campaign strategy by
the Democrats, and anyone who saw this as a news story or anything
else needs to wake up and smell the coffee. This wasn't the
first, and it won't be the last smear attack by the Left before
current midterm elections. Congressional Republicans really
need to start standing up and identifying these attacks for what
they are, instead of what they appear to be, and start fighting
I realize it is repugnant for
Republicans to use these kind of disgusting tactics against
Democrats, which in reality shows their moral high ground, but can
they afford not to? Dems want to do all this outrageous finger
pointing at Republicans, but pretend that their house is
cleaner. They need to be shown up for the hypocrites that they
are and Republicans need to forget their obsolete
"congressional club" mindsets which congressional Democrats broke
out of years ago when they started publicly attacking club
members on the other side of the isle.
If you can't beat them on the issues
that are important to Americans, then try to beat them with trumped
up scandals, distorted facts, and misrepresented and out of
context misinformation to change the subject and distract the
voters. Democrats have been getting better at this every year
since George Soros and MoveOn.org bought and paid for the
Democrat Party which no longer represents mainstream
The media feeding frenzy over this
Foley distraction, and I include Fox News in this as well, has
pushed all of the other Democrat inspired scandals off the
table for now, but as Rush Limbaugh said this morning, "The
Democrat's sewer is backing up" and their house is filling with
sewage and not much else. Why anyone would want to vote for a
politician who resorts to smear attacks instead of honest debates on
the issues in his campaign is beyond me. This kind of
campaigning says a lot more about the character and maturity of
the candidate than it does about his opponent. It tell me
that this is not the kind of person I want representing me in
Congress and making laws for the country.
