Nigel Farage’s final speech at the EU ended very dramatically when he was cut off for ‘disobeying the rules’ ahead of the Brexit withdrawal agreement vote

Nigel Farage’s final speech at the EU ended very dramatically when he was cut off for ‘disobeying the rules’ ahead of the Brexit withdrawal agreement vote.

The arrogance of the EU leadership as they are severely bitch slapped, but maintain their high moral ground. LOL just kidding.

"No more being bullied"

He gets cut off as he says "sovereign" I wonder if Angela Merkel went into Traitor Tremons.



And the semi Frumpy director of the show, I wonder who she is, brought up that the word "hate" was used.  Oh my.

She is a fine old Globalist\


Moana Loa is Ready to Blow and Flow. High Hits On the Caldera

stock here

Been watching this one ever more closely since the 2018 Volcanic event.

Moana Loa IS NOT a dormant volcano.   It does occasionally go off.   When you fly into Kona, and you should, you are amazed that the airport was carved out of a fresh enough lava field, no sign of any plant life it's that fresh.   

The 1868 EQ hit near my recently identified Magma Feeder Chamber.   It may have created or altered the Chamber area.    
https://science.sciencemag.org/content/235/4785/196.abstract

Abstract

To test whether a catastrophic earthquake could affect an active magma system, mean abundances (adjusted for "olivine control") of titanium, potassium, phosphorus, strontium, zirconium, and niobium of historic lavas erupted from Mauna Loa Volcano, Hawaii, after 1868 were analyzed and were found to decrease sharply relative to lavas erupted before 1868. This abrupt change in lava chemistry, accompanied by a halved lava-production rate for Mauna Loa after 1877, is interpreted to reflect the disruptive effects of a magnitude 7.5 earthquake in 1868. This interpretation represents a documentable case of changes in magmatic chemical variations initiated or accelerated by a major tectonic event.

OK, this is my invention, the Hill Billy Slice and Dox Method HBSD Magma Charting

By selecting just a thin slice of "latitude" .01 to be exact, and look at seismic activity in a cross sectional way, I was able to plot the "Feeder Magma Chamber" of Moana Loa and Kilauea and probably Pu'u o'o (Lava Lake that drained in the 2018 HVE)

So when I saw the two hits here today, I knew what it meant.  De nada, just time and a bit of intuition.

Muon work not needed, LOL

Success Is __________ Being Bought Out By Corrupt Evil Doers Who Shadow Run Websites Inserting a False Narrative

stock here....no it hasn't happened to me....yet LOL

1) Enenews
https://www.nukepro.net/2018/10/enenews-website-is-suspended-as-of-this.html

2) Zerohedge

Both have been bought out and Zombiefied

Enenews was an amazing site, talking about Fukushima, and one by one exposing the lies of the nuclear industry and their pimps that profit from them.      Clearly, it was bought out by the nuclear industry and then ran for a while, even with the original webmaster writing some of the articles.   It was controlled opposition that kept people there, kept them from becoming more effective whilst jumping ship to another site or organization that would really get something done.

Then one day, after most of the zeal was gone, and the infighting had become rampant, and a left versus right war was simmering always....they want us all divided.....it just went blank.

Another story about the Zombification of ENENEWS

https://www.nukepro.net/2017/07/enenews-hypothesis-of-buyout-by-nuclear.html 

Zerohedge

Zerohedge has been getting more and more shaky for maybe 1.5 years.   Lots of stories that I plain disagree with.

Several times they have pimped for the Nuclear Cartel.    But today's was over the top, a 2 part story, with the first part concluding that

If we want the system to be largely CO2-free, then the only available option is nuclear energy.
 https://www.zerohedge.com/energy/germanys-overdose-renewable-energy

It is kind of painful to read, they do have elements of the truth, as does the best lies.

And the comments
All that used fuel can be stored safely.  In the US we have already built a safe storage system at Yucca mt. but the enviro nazis won't let us use it.  The goal is to destroy human life on earth except for the elite.  If you knew a little about nuclear power you would not believe the disinformation put out about Fukushima.  There is a well funded world wide effort to destroy all useful energy sources because that would destroy our ability to feed clothe and house the current population.  Death is what they want and people like you are cheering them on.

Your ignorance regarding nuclear energy is astounding.  Leaving the plants empty and running for 3 days, you would notice nothing.  At worst a few would shut down themselves if something went wrong.  Ignorant fools like yourself should really just shut up.
 ------------------------------------------

One of my greatest disappointments in the human race is the failure of improved science, technology and communications capabilities to enlighten us in sufficient numbers to achieve critical mass, enabling us to arrive at common truths and to be able to act upon them in unison to our collective benefit.

Instead, we are plagued by our inability to sift through propaganda and discard our biases, leaving us to substitute 'emotion' for 'logic,' and thus dispersing our personal energies to the ethers, to no one's benefit except to those who control us.

We have trapped ourselves in a vicious cycle with no visible path from which to emerge. If we could achieve 'escape velocity,' as humans, the experience would be truly transcedental.




Largely correct. We have invested massive amounts of intellectual effort in science and practically zero in our humanity. Werner Erhard gave it a good try.

I suspect the so called dark ages may look dark because we are looking for scientific or economic progress and they were more interested in spirituality and humanities?


 

Large EQ Hits At Same Spot That Triggered the 2018 Hawaii Volcanic Event (HVE) and the 1975 Kalapana Tsunami

I follow this enough that I knew the location of yesterday's large earthquake....the location looked suspiciously like the 2018 Trigger.   So plotted on Google Earth, and yes indeed it was.

It's the blue one.  See Google Earth, 2nd Diagram which shows Yesterday's Trigger and the 2018 Trigger.    Almost exactly same place and DEPTH.   Depth is super important.   The 2018 Trigger was 5-4-2018.

You can right click and open these graphics in a new window and they are much more readable.

It's offshore from Kalapana.   On the USGS they label it as Leilani Estates.

Back in  1975 there was the Kalapana Earthquake, it was large, and triggered a tsunami that made it to Japan and California.   It only killed 2 people on the big island, it was very sparsely populated at the time.   A dozen residences total in a 20 mile span, 10 miles each way from the epicenter.   Not so now. 


It hit Oahu at 1 foot, 30 minutes later.    Oahu is exactly the opposite direction from this shoreline, so is partly protected, much a much larger tsunami may not work the same.    Los Angeles also saw a 1 foot tsunami, 6 hours later, or 350MPH wave speed.  

Some report the local wave at 45', others say it was at the top of the coconut trees, more like 60 feet.

The 2018 Trigger off Kalapana also set off 2 large quakes right in the Underwater Slump Field (SF),
the remnants of prior Slump events.    It destabilized the SF, which allowed movement on the above ground Hilina slump, which is clearly shown in this video I created that just shows above sea level EQ, you won't see the Slump Field quake on this as they are underwater.   I'll do another one showing those  SF EQ.

The time of yesterdays "Trigger" Quake was 22:23 UTC, Hawaii Time is UTC - 10H, so 12:23PM

The Kalapana Quake of 1975 was a huge 7.2 at 4:47 AM HST, I'll get into timing later.    Itself was apparently triggered by a 5.7M at 3:35AM nearby.

Note in the 2019 HVE most of the last minute forced evacuations were in the wee hours of the morning.  

The largest evacuation came the early morning of the day after the day that I formed my theory of GCR nucleation of gasses, and actually called the USGS and Mayor Kim and warned then of a possible large eruption and east riff activity.

So after yesterday's "Trigger" Hawaii has picked up to 5 EQ 2.5M and up in 24H.

So how does the 1975 Kalapana EQ line up with the 2018 Trigger and the Potential 2020 Trigger?

See Graphic, All three Triggers are within a mile.  



Here are 2 Video Presentations. 

The first is all above sea level EQ and it clearly shows the Hilina Slump get hit hard (think Kalapana area) and then that triggers the whole HVE of 2018.

The second video shows ALL earthquakes of 2018 into 2019: Notables.   

1) The Aug 5th 2018 shutdown of the volcano, Triggered by the 6.9 EQ in Indonesia on Aug 5th, 2018
(See graphic at far bottom of this article)

2) The late 2019 uptick in Hawaii EQ activity

Chief Scientist At Moana Loa, 2nd "Warning" in a Week, They Call It An "Update"

stock here -- I was first to call for the upcoming eruption, potentially at Kilauea but also possibly at Mauna Loa.  

On the 21st Jan I called out

A Series of Large and High Earthquakes On Mauna Loa, Portend a New Eruption Of Largest Volcano

I doubt that USGS follows my work, if they did they would be much further along on EQ prediction, LOL.   Shortly after my revelation, USGS came out with their first update and "warning".   Also at the link above. 

Now on Jan 28, USGS issues their second video update and warning, in the video at the bottom.

I am glad that USGS is not "covering up" this pending activity.   Usually their stance is "we will have
hundreds of small quakes about 1 days before an eruption", so this is good.   In 2018 USGS was read the riot act and was forced to stop all their updates as tourist travel plummeted, people were scared and uncertain.

The quiet sun, and the especially low and sustained low Kp (Earth magnetic field) index has blasted the earth with Cosmic Rays (high energy Gamma rays).   Thus adding energy to specific magma chambers, which then nucleates dissolved gases in the magma.

But as solar cycle 25 rolls in to a period of higher sunspot and magnetism, these can be triggers to an already "primed earth". 

I invented a cross sectional approach to analyzing seismic data to identify the Moana Loa magma
chamber in link below, and "high hits" continue as Moana Loa.   Image at top here, and link right below.   It's some good work.

https://www.nukepro.net/2020/01/cross-sectional-analysis-of-moana-loa.html

In video, Chief Scientist, doubles down, and says based on past behavior, the next eruption is likely to be in the summit area.   BINGO!

She also warns of a possible steam based  explosion based on the growing lake and presence of nearby magma.

Largest Quake Ever to Hit the Caribbean Hits at 7.7, and Epstein Still Didn't Kill Himself

stock here.

We have continued the Earthquake Alert that went into high gear last month, after 2 months of extremely low Kp index.

The first "real" sunspot with perumbra passed through earth effective zone yesterday and is heading to the eastern limb.    No flares or other dramatic stuff.

Here is how it works, and we continue EQ Alert, this non standard location does little to think that stress has been relieved on the main Ring of Fire.   Also expect more vulcanism.

The Quiet Sun (low sunspots) affects the Earth measured Kp index, a measure of the Earth's magnetic field / shield.    Low Kp (and it has been amazingly low since late last fall) means that much more Cosmic Rays get into the atmosphere and start their cascade of effects.

Some of these high energy particles penetrate the ground, to say 2 miles.   This adds energy to dissolved gasses in Magma, and some of those gases "nucleate" and start rising up, and like a ballon going high in the sky and less pressure, they get bigger and rise faster.  

So much of the worlds Magma chambers are "primed" ready to pop.      Now comes the sunspots, and they launch electromagnetic sheets and cones that connect via the Sun /Earth connection that is always there, now the Magnetic Shield takes a jolt, and this too can set off EQ. 

So here we are, primed.


 Epstein did not kill himself, and Google did not remove the fake tennis court inside the high bermed "ceremony area" on his island.     I caught this many month ago, the story is here.....

Bloomberg Total Hypocrisy As They Commit Defamation

I don't think a died in the wool lib is going to stumble across my site, and actually have their mind changed.

--------------------------------------------

Bloomberg thinks that if the President, who is totally responsible for foreign policy, uses even the slightest bit of favor asking of an foreign leader, that he should be removed from office.

But Bloomberg will use the full power of his machine to attack the President and ANYONE AND EVERYONE who supports the President, but it gets better....

Using a third party report about a book that isn't even out from an Establishment War Hawk who was fired by the President and quite mad about it.     And has all the reason in the world to make stuff up.

But even if Trump pressured The Ukranina president to look into element of corruption between US citizens and Ukraine, and their horrific long term record of corruption....So what?    oh because it was a political rivel, Joe Biden.....the Dems did not and do not for a second intend on running a creepy grabby old white men who has trouble with a train of thought, much less well thought out grammatical sentence. 

Bloomberg using a book written by a liar, that doesn't matter anyway even if true, and calling it "the Smoking Gun"

And more from Bloomberg

LOL -- Encouraging Senators to vote to CONVICT on impeachment, using any criteria they choose.

Important Elements Of Climate Variation -- One Does Not "Fight Climate" and Win, One Adjusts to Climate and Weather

In response to a Denier Shouter at ABC, I had this.

https://abcnews.go.com/Business/steve-mnuchin-tells-greta-thunberg-study-economics-discussing/story?id=68478525#comment-4773090868

Not at all a dodge, I am an expert in heliophysics, magnetic excursions, galactic cosmic rays, grand solar minimums, ice cores and other reconstructions, maunder minimum,, Dalton minimum.    I think there could be some small impact(of 'carbon'), like 2% of total warming.   

1) Low cloud cover,
2) Vulcanism,
3) The Pacific decadal oscillation,
4) Jet stream, and
5) Polar vortex
6) Ocean movement patterns influenced by the above

Are all much more important.

Climate "scientists" aka Grant Whores, on their high moral ground have been caught fudging almost every "climate" metric that there is.....because the end result is so important.    

We were lucky to live in the modern warm period after de-glaciating out of the little ice age.    The next 20 and 40 years should see cooling and famine, regime changes, and a serious bitch slapping to countries that invested in carbon extraction idiocy.    

We absolutely need to stop pollution, excessive use of pesticides and herbicides which can be greatly reduced if we just improve our soils and forest management.     Reduction of glyphosate will also improve water quality a lot  (it turns into phosphate among other things).   And no, having a penis up your rectum is not "an advancement in human rights and dignity"

Greta "we cannot care about criticism" and still do what we do.    In other words, we cannot even consider any other statement or argument, because we hold the high moral ground as the true believers.

Greta: "Entire ecosystems are dying" She is correct.   

The Greta Pacific Die Off (post Fukushima) and The Great Bug Die Off of 90%.    Bad signs.   

Unhealthy soils that act like Zombie soil that only produce when dosed with chemical fertilizers, Genetically modified seeds that can't even self re-produce.  

Then they must be blasted with deadly toxins that

1) wipe out insects including bees, 
2) cause asthma and other respiratory problems,
3) cause cancers and other morbidity,
4) and finally when they decompose they enter our waterways as phosphate and they grow and overgrow algae that are now often toxic themselves. 

Celebrity Deaths Immediately Before the Grammies -- Are There Coincidences?

 Kobe Bryant's death was a shock, 1-26-2020.    A day before the Grammies.   Conspiracies of
Hollywood flexing it's satanic muscles.  

 Like Whitney Houston who died 1 day before the Grammies in 2012, numerologists will love the 2-11-2012.

I feel like I am getting pretty conspiratorial with this post, BUT for many years now people have been pointing out the blatant satanic imagery used at the Grammies

And let the numerologist check the Kobe date of

And boy, do they sure like giving awards to the Globalists:
  1. Clinton HRC won "spoken word album in 1997 "It Takes a Village", otherwise known as "give us your kids and we will indoctrinate the hell out of the, at best".....
  2. Hussein Obama won in 2006 for "Dreams of my Father"
  3. Hussein won again in 2008 for "The Audacity of Hope"
  4. and now M. Obama wins for "Becoming"


2-11-2012 Whitney Houston found dead in the Beverly Hilton hotel.    A Grammy award celebration
was bring hosted by Clive Davis.

Like the suicide with 6 self inflicted nail gun hits to the head, this death was suspicious.

The coverage of the story did nothing to make one feel like they were getting the real story
https://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/whitney-houston-death-surprising-details-coroners-report/story?id=16076589
The Missing Items
The coroner reported that when found in her room at the Beverly Hilton, Houston's purse "decedent's California driver's license had been removed from the wallet, which was inside the purse, prior to my arrival."
contained her wallet, but the
"Also prior to my arrival, the majority of the decedent's prescription medication bottles had been removed from a brown bag that was on top of the table in the southeast corner of the living room, and then placed on top of that same table," the report reads.
 I mean, how could he know she had a California driver license, and how would he know that the license just was never there?   I mean, just silly to explain that bottles were taken out of a bag, unless he had knowledge of who did it and when and why, in which case that should just be explained.    So Whitney was popping  all kind of pills....and neatly putting the container back in a brown paper bag, that doesn't make sense.   And why wouldn't she just carry them in her Channel bag or toiletry kit?

They said they found 12 different medications, and only mentioned 2, Xanax and Flexeril.  They stated that the Xanax did not contribute to her death, and that overall presence of drugs in her body was "mild"

Forensic toxicologist Bruce Goldberger said the details about her blood from the toxicology report indicate that she was "acutely intoxicated from cocaine"
Really now?  Intoxicated by cocaine???   I can see bouncing of the walls all zipped up on cocaine....but "intoxicated"?   Nothing in this story smells right. 

Houston was discovered by her assistant the afternoon of Feb. 11 face down in a water-filled bathtub with a "bloody purge coming from her nose" and, according to the report, "there were two superficial abrasions to the left side of her forehead, and there was a superficial abrasion to the left side of the bridge of her nose."
Forensic pathologist Cyril Wecht said he does not fully concur with the final anatomical diagnoses on Houston, noting that the water in her tub at the Beverly Hilton was extremely hot at 93.5 degrees. He believes this indicates that Houston was not sitting in her tub, and somehow accidentally drowned.
"I think that she fell into this very hot water, that accounts for a little bruise that was seen in the left forehead area, some other pressure markings on the face, including the slight laceration of the lip, and the fact that she is lying face down," Wecht told ABC News. "I think that this lady fell into the water, she was unconscious, dead or dying when she fell into the tub.

93.5 is not hot.      Hot tubs run at 104.   Human bodies run around 98.5F It's just a silly non-sensical comment.

The Seth Rich Story Did Not Kill Itself----FBI Coverup Of Seth Rich's Murder, Rich Leaked the DNC Emails, Killing the Bogus "Russia" Narrative

Added some material at the far end, more info on Brazille and Shultz, and how his injuries were treatable and he should not have died.  He was 27 YO. 

And here, 2020, a recently found deep dive on Seth Rich

ON Feb 1 2020, Craig Murray did a further writeup, link below.   More analysis on why the family did not want to pursue further.


stock here, recently released emails show that the FBI took active efforts to "Squash" the Seth Rich

Story.   The Seth Rich story crushes the "Russia hacked the DNC" narrative

This is all from email release which is a 5MB file that you can download here:

https://app.box.com/s/w4sw8ko5ws7cutiyti0dfsggt4iux60k


First off let's introduce a "Deep State" site, with pictures of the "actors"

https://www.fbcoverup.com/docs/library/deep-state.html

Note how many are part of the Clinton Foundation.   A way to reward their bad behavior.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
All this has been researched and vetted by stock, so I am going to lay it out quick and dirty without support in this article.   Support is available at Nukepro, just search it.

A set of players took active measures to not just Kill Seth Rich  but to Kill the Seth Rich Story.

Seth Rich was a DNC staffer, he was a Bernie guy.    He saw how they were stealing any chance of a Caucus vote for Bernie.   Although a Democrat, Seth was also a great patriot.

So he decided to blow the DNC Bernie hit job, wide open, by releasing a bunch of DNC emails.

Seth Rich gave the emails to Wikileaks, which Wikileaks acknowledged (hedging because they never release their sources).

The data files on these emails shows the date and time that the files were created on the Thumbdrive.   Why do we know it was a Thumbdrive?   Because of the size of the files and the then related time stamp, we know the transfer rate.

The only way to transfer as fast as they did is with a Thumbdrive plugged directly into the host computer.

Do you get it already?

Russia could not have hacked in and got the emails, and transferred and created the files as quickly as the real data shows.     Russia didn't do it.  It was an inside job.

They killed Seth Rich.   They attempted to make it look like a botched robbery, but nothing was stolen.    He didn't die right away.

They took him to a nearby hospital, and he died a few hours later.   July 10, 2016

On July 22, Wikileaks released 20,000 emails proving that the DNC conspired to sabotage Bernie Sanders, leading to the resignation of Debbie Wasserman Schulz.

August 9, 2016 Wikileaks puts out a $20,000 reward for information about Seth Rich's murder.

 On August 10th, 2016 Peter Strzok discusses how the Seth Rich story was "Squashed" by the FBI.

On August 11, 2016 Strzok, Page, a Deep Staters from the FBI David Archey (Richmond Virginia) and Charles Mcgonigal (New York) discuss how they must have an in person only meeting.

Also involved all these discussions at the FBI re Seth Rich, was Jonathon Moffa.  He is a huge player who amazingly has escaped much of the lime light.













----------------------------------------------------------------------
Not as full facts, I have tried to stick to vetted facts, BUT

His brother did say that first responders found him as talkative at the scene, and very conscious but confused and gave his address as a prior address.   It was 4 AM after bar time, LOL.

He made it to the hospital alive, and there is a report from one Doctor at said hospital that he definitely looked like his injuries were treatable and should not have been a concern.

Reportedly Donna Brazille (who acted like his friend and maybe really was....but when the Deep State gives you orders under threat of exposing your felony level blackmail, she kills him anyway) visits, almost at same time as he gets to hospital, which is only like 6 minutes from 1st response.

Please advise on who was not allowed to visit him.

Do you know for sure which Hospital it was?   Someone else important was taken to same hospital.

stock out
==========================================
Seth Rich's former boss and co-boss are Donna Brazile and Debbie Wasserman-Shultz.
Both of who are directly linked to Imran Awan. Mr Awan is the greatest living hero of the Pakistan's war on the Imperialistic evil Obama worshiping Nation we call USA.

Imran is a Demi-God to our self admitted enemies and is walking free to Blackmail Congress on behalf of the grateful Nation of Pakistan.

I am not feeling grateful to perversion of Justice.

Beside they have to include truth once in a while because the narrative will crumble.

Transcript of Biden Speech in His Run For President 2007 -- Enlightening

Transcript of Joe Biden running for President in 2007

I so much more enjoy reading a transcript than watching a video.

Huge time saver, and the words do matter.

In the early part he is thanking those who showed up, talking about "the process" and asking people to Caucus For Me.    I mean, WTF does that even mean?

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Seems like Joe has had memory and credibility problems for  a long time.    See the claim that he was the one that gave women the right to vote.   Wow.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. IT'S GOOD TO BE BACK. IT'S GOOD TO BE BACK IN THIS ROOM. LITTLE WARMER LAST TIME I WAS HERE IN THIS ROOM. BUT THE CROWD WAS NO WARMER. CAN YOU ALL HEAR BACK HERE? DOES THAT HELP AT ALL IF I USE THAT? ALL RIGHT. LET ME TELL YOU, JOE MAY OR MAY NOT BE RIGHT, BUT JOE IS LUCKY TO HAVE CHIP INTRODUCE HIM. CHIP, REALLY, 

THAT WAS -- [APPLAUSE] CHIP, I LEAVE FOR NEW HAMPSHIRE TOMORROW AND THEN I'M BACK FOR 24 DAYS IN OHIO. I COULD USE YOU IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. MY STEERING COMMITTEE IS HERE.  

I THANK YOU VERY, VERY MUCH. FOLKS, THANKS FOR BEING MERE TONIGHT. AS I HAVE SAID TIME AND AGAIN -- AND I MEAN IT -- I KIND OF LOOK LIKE I'M BULGING HERE BECAUSE THE TWO NETWORKS HAVE ME WIRED. I DIDN'T WANT YOU TO THINK I HAVE GAINED THAT MUCH WEIGHT. MY WIFE IS WORRYING THAT I'M EATING TOO MANY DONUTS ON THE TRAIL. FOLKS, YOU KNOW, I SHOULD BEGIN BY THANKING YOU. I MEAN THAT SINCERELY, THANKING YOU FOR BEING HERE TONIGHT.  

THANKING FOR HOW EARNEST YOU ARE ABOUT THIS ELECTION PROCESS, THANKING YOU FOR BEING, LITERALLY, THE ONLY THING THAT STANDS BETWEEN FOLK IT IS LIKE ME WHO DON'T HAVE $100 MILLION AND DEMOCKLASI. THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS THAT IF NOT FOR YOU AND NEW HAMPSHIRE AS WELL, THIS WOULD GO TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER.  

BECAUSE THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS YOU COULDN'T DO THIS. WE CAMPAIGN LIKE THIS IN DELAWARE. I HAVE NOW BEEN -- I THINK WE ARE UP TO 289 IN 99 COUNTIES IN THIS TOUR. I HAVE BEEN TO ALL 89, BUT JUST THIS TOUR. FOLKS, EVERYWHERE I GO, EVERYWHERE I GO, IOWA TAKES THIS SERIOUSLY. EVERYWHERE I GO, IT'S AMAZING. I'M SURE EVERY OTHER CANDIDATE GETS THE SAME RECEPTION IN TERMS OF SAYING THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE. 

 YOU COME OUT. YOU COME OUT EARLY, LATE IN THE NIGHT, IN THE WEEKEND, WEEKDAYS, AND YOU ASK GOOD QUESTIONS. QUITE FRANKLY -- NO EXAGGERATION -- THERE WOULD BE NO POSSIBILITY, NO POSSIBILITY FOR THE REST OF THE COUNTRY TO GET A SENSE OF WHO WE ARE, WHAT WE THINK AND HOW DEEPLY OR NOT THINK DEEPLY, ABOUT THE VARIOUS SUBJECTS BECAUSE YOU ASK GREAT QUESTIONS AND GIVE US A SHOT.

 I THINK -- AND I MEAN THIS DISH THINK I'M GOING TO DO WELL IN IOWA. I THINK I'M GOING TO SURPRISE THE LIVING DEVIL OUT OF THE PUNDITS. [APPLAUSE] WHAT I WANT TO SAY TO YOU ALL IS I KNOW YOU GET TO SEE ALL THE CANDIDATES. I WAS ACTUALLY -- WE WERE IN -- I THINK IT WAS CENTERVILLE, AND SOMEONE SAID, YOU KNOW, SENATOR, I'M GOING TO YOU. I HAVE ONLY MET YOU FOUR TIMES, BUT I'M GOING TO CAUCUS FOR YOU. 

OKAY. ONLY IN IOWA WOULD ANYONE SAY THAT BUT THE OTHER SIDE OF THAT IS, FOLKS, YOU HAVE, YOU KNOW, THE REST OF THE COUNTRY ENVIES YOU. THE PARTIES, THE OTHER COUNTRY ENVIES YOU. I'M NOT SUCH -- SURE -- IT'S SUCH A GOOD THING FOR YOU BECAUSE YOU ARE GOING TO DETERMINE WHO THE NEXT PRESIDENT IS GOING TO BE. 

THERE'S ONLY GOING TO BE IN BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE, THERE ARE ONLY GOING TO BE SEVERAL TO GET THE TICKET PUNCHED TO GO TO THE NEXT STOP BECAUSE YOU ARE THE FILTER THROUGH WHICH WE HAVE TO GO. THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS IF YOU ARE NOT ONE OF THE CANDIDATES PICKED BY IOWA THEN YOU DON'T EVEN GET TO PARTICIPATE. THE REST OF THE QUOUNTRY DOESN'T GET TO SEE. DOESN'T GET TO SEE YOU. SO I THINK YOU HAVE A PRETTY SIGNIFICANT OBLIGATION AS WELL. I HOPE -- I HOPE -- YOU WILL DECIDE WHO AMONG US YOU THINK IS THE MOST QUALIFIED TO BE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. I THINK YOU HAVE THAT OBLIGATION TO SEND OUT TO THE REST OF THE COUNTRY THE PERSON OR PERSONS YOU THINK WHO ARE THE MOST QUALIFIED TO BE PRESIDENT RATHER THAN BUY INTO WHAT SOME OF MY COLLEAGUES ARE TALKING ABOUT, THE INEVITABILITY OF OTHER PEOPLE WINNING BECAUSE THEY HAVE MORE MONEY, LARGER STAFFS, BECAUSE THEY HAVE BEEN ABLE TO GET SIGNIFICANTLY MORE NATIONAL PRESS. 

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IF YOU CONCLUDE AT THE END OF THE DAY OR BY JANUARY THIRD THAT I'M THE MOST QUALIFIED PERSON, PLEASE CAUCUS FOR ME. 

 PLEASE DON'T SAY I THINK HE IS QUALIFIED. I THINK HE IS A GREAT GUY, BUT I DON'T THINK HE CAN WIN. I CAN WIN IF YOU CAUCUS FOR ME. I CAN WIN IF YOU CAUCUS FOR ME. [APPLAUSE] LET ME SAY A FEW THINGS. ABOUT WHY I'M RUNNING, AND THEN WITH YOUR PERMISSION, TAKE AS MANY QUESTIONS AS YOU MAY HAVE OR HEAR WHATEVER COMMENTS YOU MAY WANT TO MAKE FOR ME AND OTHERS TO HEAR. FOLKS, IT'S NOT AN EXAGGERATION TO SUGGEST THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ELECTION ANYONE WILL EVER PARTICIPATE IN IN THIS ROOM. AMERICA HAS NEVER BEEN MORE ISOLATED THAN TODAY, NEVER BEEN MORE ISOLATED IN THE WORLD THAN THIS MOMENT. FEWER PEOPLE, FEWER COUNTRIES RESPECT OUR JUDGMENT, PROBABLY THAN ANY TIME IN OUR HISTORY. ALL THE PROBLEMS WE FACE IN THIS WORLD, WE ARE UNABLE TO DEAL WITH THEM ALONE. WE NEED SUPPORT OF OTHER COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD. WE HAVE TO REGAIN OUR CREDIBILITY TO BE ABLE TO LEAD THE WORLD. AND THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES IS GOING TO HAVE THE SINGLE GREATEST OPPORTUNITY OF ANY PRESIDENT SINCE FRANKLIN ROOSEVELT TO LITERALLY SHAPE THE NATION AND SHAPE THE WORLD. THE SECOND POINT I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE TO YOU IS THAT WITH THAT OPPORTUNITY GOES AN INCREDIBLE OBLIGATION ON THE PART OF OUR PARTY. TO NOMINATE A MAN OR WOMAN WHO WILL BE ABLE TO, FROM THE MOMENT THEY ARE SWORN IN, TAKE CONTROL. HAVE A CLEAR SENSE OF WHAT HE OR SHE WISHES TO DO. HAVE A CLEAR NOTION OF WHAT THEY THINK AMERICA'S PLACE IN THE WORLD IS AND SHOULD BE. BECAUSE, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE REST OF THE WORLD IS WAITING. THE REST OF THE WORLD IS WAITING TO SEE WHAT AMERICA IS GOING TO DO. AS FRUSTRATING AS TO THE REST OF THE WORLD, THEY KNOW WE ARE THE INDISPENSABLE COUNTRY, TO USE MADELEINE ALBRIGHT'S PHRASE. NO OTHER COUNTRY IN THE WORLD HAS THE POTENTIAL, CAPACITY, TO PUT THE WORLD BACK ON TRACK. WE ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO CAN SO WITH IT GOES A SIGNIFICANT OBLIGATION. THE SECOND POINT I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE IS THAT WE HEAR TODAY FROM OTHER CANDIDATES -- I KNOW SOME OF YOU KNOW ME AND SOME KNOW ME PRETTY WELL -- I GENUINELY I LIKE AND ADMIRE THE PEOPLE I LIKE AND RUN WITH. CHRIS DODD IS ONE OF MY CLOSEST FRIENDS IN THE WORLD, BEYOND POLITICAL FRIENDS. HILLARY CLINTON AND I HAVE BEEN CLOSE FRIENDS SINCE 19 YEARS. BRBR AND I ARE FRIENDS. I THINK HE'S CRAZY, AND WE JOKE. BUT WE HAVE BEEN FRIENDS FOR A LONG, LONG TIME. SO I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING BUT ADMIRATION FOR THE PEOPLE -- AND OTHERS, JOHN JOHN, BARACK, JOFF ANYTHING BUT ADMIRATION FOR THEM. WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN FOR THE NEXT LITTLE BIT IS GOING TO BE IMPORTANT FOR US AND FOR THE WORLD. AND MY COLLEAGUES ALWAYS KID ME. IF YOU NOTICE, THEY THINK I WOULD ALL MAKE A GREAT SECRETARY OF STATE. I ADMIRE THAT FACT. THEY ARE ALL READY TO MAKE ME SECRETARY OF STATE, OR EAVEPB COUPLE FROM WHAT I AM HEARING, SOME ARE READY TO MAKE ME VICE PRESIDENT. THIS IS ALL WONDERFUL. I'M FLATTERED BY THE ATENTHS. BUT YOU HEAR FROM THE CANDIDATES WITH THE MOST MONEY THAT DEBATE ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT THIS IS A RACE ABOUT EXPERIENCE OR THIS IS A RACE AS TO WHO WILL CHANGE, WHO IS THE AGENT OF CHANGE. WELL, FOLKS, I WILL -- I TAKE NO BACKSEAT TO ANYONE RUNNING IN TERMS OF EXPERIENCE. I HAVE MORE EXPERIENCE THAN ANYBODY THAT'S RUNNING. BUT, YOU KNOW, EXPERIENCE ISN'T NECESSARILY ALL THAT GOOD UNLESS IT'S GOOD EXPERIENCE. YOU COULD HAVE 30 YEARS OF BAD EXPERIENCE, TOO. THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS THAT SENATOR CLINTON, WHO I ADMIRE A GREAT DEAL. TALKS ABOUT HER 35 YEARS EXPERIENCE. SHE DOES HAVE THAT. SHE TALKS ABOUT THE CHILDREN'S DEFENSE FUND. SHE DID GREAT WORK. BUT WHILE SHE WAS DOING THAT, I WAS WRITING LEGISLATION PROTECTING CHILDREN. SO MY EXPERIENCE FRKS IT'S EXPERIENCE, I HAVE MORE EXPERIENCE, AND CONSEQUENCIAL EXPERIENCE. IF IT'S CHANGE, WELL, THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS THAT I HAVE BEEN AN AGENT OF CHANGE IN THE UNITED STATES SENATE. THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER , 

EARLY ON WHEN I WAS A YOUNG SENATOR, WOMEN WEREN'T ABLE TO VOTE, GET A LOAN. FIRST THING I DID WAS CHANGE THAT, WHEN EVERYONE SAID IT WAS A BAD IDEA. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Seems like Joe has had memory and credibility problems for  a long time.    See the claim above that he was the one that gave women the right to vote.   Wow.  



PEOPLE SAID WE USED TO HAVE A DEBATE WE COULDN'T GET TOGETHER. REMEMBER THE DAYS, THOSE WHO ARE OLDER, OLDER THAN 30, WHO REMEMBER THE DAYS WHEN DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES GOT DEFEATED FROM THE HOUSE AND SENATE ON THE CRIME ISSUE BECAUSE WE HAD A SEVEN-ONE EDGE ON US OF BEING TOUGHER ON CRIME. I CAME ALONG AND SAID, YOU KNOW, THERE'S A WAY TO BOTH STOP CRIME AND SECURE CIVIL RIGHTS AND CIVIL LIBERTIES, AND I WROTE THE CRIME BILL THAT PUT $10 BILLION ON THE STREET FOR PREVENTION AND TREATMENT. AND I WAS ABLE TO PUT 100,000 COPS ON THE STREET IN THE BIDEN CRIME BILL. THAT WAS REAL CHANGE, A RADICAL DEPARTURE. I REMEMBER THE EDITORIALS SAYING, WE HAVE DONE THIS BEFORE. WHAT ARE WE DOING AGAIN? WE HAD NEVER COMBINED THE TWOFMENT THE VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN ACT. IT TOOK ME EIGHT YEARS TO GET THAT DUFPBLET YOU HAD A RELIGIOUS GROUPS ARGUING THIS WAS A FAMILY MATTER, THE MOST VILE CRIME IN AMERICA IS NOT A FAMILY MATTER. YOU HAD A VERY SERIOUS DIVISION. I HAD TO CONVINCE A SIGNIFICANT NUMBER OF REPUBLICANS TO JOIN US TO GET IT PASSED. THAT WAS A SIGNIFICANT CHANGE IN THE MIND SET OF AMERICA ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT WE HAD AN OBLIGATION TO EXPOSE THIS DIRTY SECRET. THE SAME THING GOES ON WITH REGARD TO BOSNIA. WHEN THEY WERE GOING, SOME OF YOU GOT UPSET WITH ME BECAUSE I PUMMELED POLITICALLY AND BANALERED PRESIDENT CLINTON TO GO TO WAR. I BADGERED HIM TO STOP THE GENOCIDE. TWO YEARS AFTER I STARTED THE EFFORT, HE DID. AND HE SAVED HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF LIVES. WE DIDN'T LOSE ONE AMERICAN LIFE. WE HAVE HAD 20,000 FORCES THERE, WESTERN FORCES THERE, FOR 10 YEARS. NOT ONE HAS DIED. THE GENOCIDE HAS ENDED. WOMEN AND CHILDREN AREN'T BEING PUT IN RAPE CAMPS AND SLAUGHTERED. [APPLAUSE] LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE POINT WAS WHEN I STARTED THAT, NO ONE SUPPORTED ME. AS A MATTER OF FACT, THE FIRST GUY TO SUPPORT ME WAS BOB DOLE ABOUT A YEAR LATER. SO IF WE ARE TALKING ABOUT CHANGE, IF THAT'S WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR, I HAVE A RECORD OF HAVING CHANGED THE ATTITUDE OF OUR PARTY, CHANGED THE ATTITUDE OF THE NATION ON SOME VERY IMPORTANT ISSUES. BUT THE TRUTH IS THIS ELECTION IS NEITHER ABOUT CHANGE NOR IS IT ABOUT EXPERIENCE. IT'S ABOUT ACTION. ACTION. THE WORLD IS MOVING SO RAPIDLY THAT THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES BETTER KNOW EXACTLY WHAT HE OR SHE IS GOING TO DO THE MOMENT THEY TAKE ELEPHANTS BECAUSE INACTION RESULTS IN CONSEQUENCES AS WELL AS ACTION. AND IT TAKES CONFIDENCE, EXPERIENCE, AND A TRACK RECORD TO HAVE THE CONFIDENCE TO TAKE SOME OF THE DECISIONS THAT HAVE TO BE MADE BY THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, 

BOTH DOMESTICALLY AND INTERNATIONALLY. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE NEITHER LIBERAL OR CONSERVATIVE. THEY ARE PRAGMATIC. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE BELIEVED THROUGHOUT OUR HISTORY THAT IF THERE'S A PROBLEM, APPLY OUR INGENUITY TO IT, COME UP WITH A PRAGMATIC SOLUTION, AND SOLVE IT. PEOPLE ARE LOOKING FOR US TO SOLVE THEIR PROBLEMS, NOT ENGAGE IN A DEBATE AND THE IDEOLOGICAL DISCOURSE. 

WE HAVE BEEN LED TO BELIEVE, AS DEMOCRATS, SOMETIMES EVEN BY DEMOCRATS, THAT THERE IS THIS GREAT DIVIDE IN THE UNITED STATES, IT'S RED AND BLUE. THAT IT'S FUNDAMENTALLY A DIVIDED NATION. WE EVEN GET THAT FROM SOME OF OUR DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES WHO SAY, ELECT ME AND I'LL TAKE ON THE RIGHT WING. I'LL BE ABLE TO FIGHT BACK.  

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE NOT DIVIDED. A WOMAN IN THIS COUNTRY RAISING TWO KIDS HAS NO DIFFERENT ASPIRATION FOR HER TWO CHILDREN THAN A SINGLE WOMAN RAISING TWO KIDS IN LOS ANGELES OR IN BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, OR IN LOUISIANA.  

THE ASPIRATIONS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE NOT ALL OF A SUDDEN BEEN FRACTURED. PRIOR TO THE 2002 ELECTION IF BILL CLINTON RAN AGAIN FOR OFFICE FOR THE THIRD TIME HE WOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO WIN LOUISIANA, MISSOURI, WEST VIRGINIA, SO ON, SO FORTH. WHY IS IT THE LAST EIGHT YEARS THAT WE ARE RED AND BLEW.  

THERE ARE 30 RED STATES AND 20 BLUE STATES, AND THE BEST WE CAN DO IS PICK OFF ONE OR TWO OF THOSE RED STATES. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IF I'M YOUR NOMINEE, I'M GOING TO CAMPAIGN FULL BORE IN AT LEAST 15 TO 18 OF THOSE RED STATES. [APPLAUSE] AND THE REASON I SAY THAT IS NOT ABOUT MY BELIEVING I CAN WIN EVERY ONE OF THOSE STATES, BUT IT'S ABOUT THE THINGS I CARE MOST ABOUT, WHETHER IT'S UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE, A 21ST CENTURY EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM, GLOBAL WARMING, ENVIRONMENTAL DEGRADATION, A DECENT, SERIOUS FARM BILL THAT FOCUSES ON CONSERVATION AND KEEPING THE FAMILY FARM ALIVE.  

WHATEVER IT IS, IS GOING TO REQUIRE A CONSENSUS ON THE PART OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. NOT ONE SINGLE THING I CARE ABOUT LENDS ITSELF TO A 51% SOLUTION. NOT ONE. DOES ANYBODY IN HERE THINK WE CAN GET NATIONAL HEALTHCARE WITHOUT GETTING A LOT OF THOSE PEOPLE IN THOSE RED STATES TO SUPPORT US?  

DOES ANYBODY THINK WE CAN GET NATIONAL HEALTHCARE WITHOUT GETTING 15% OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY TO JOIN US? SO, FOLKS, I'M NOT RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT TO HEAR HAIL TO THE CHIEF PLAY. I'LL DIE A HAPPY MAN NEVER HAVING HEARD IT. I'M RUNNING BECAUSE I WANT TO CHANGE THE NATION AND CHANGE THE WORLD. . EVERYTHING I CARE ABOUT.  

N ORDER FOR US TO BE ABLE TO REGAIN THE CONFIDENCE AND CREDIBILITY OF THE REST OF THE WORLD, TO DEAL WITH THOSE OTHER CRISES THAT ARE LOOMING OUT THERE, FROM PAKISTAN TO THE DEMOCRATIZATION OF LATIN AMERICA TO SEE AUTHORITARIAN REGIMES MOVING IN PLACE AND WHAT IS GOING ON IN INDIA AND TO THE MIDDLE EAST. IN ORDER TO REGAIN THE CONFIDENCE OF OTHER NATIONS TO FOLLOW US, WE HAVE TO SETTLE AND END THIS WAR IN IRAQ. NOBODY WANTS TO COOPERATE WITH US. THAT IS NOT HYPERBOLE, IT IS A FACT. SOME OF YOU HAVE HEARD ME SAY THIS BEFORE, I USED TO BE A RELATIVELY GOOD BASEBALL PLAYER. 

 I HAD A COACH USED TO TELL A JOKE, HE WOULD TELL THE STORY ABOUT GEORGE, THE CENTER FIELDER. IN FACT, HE WAS A STAR CENTERFIELDER AND IN THE FIRST TWO INNINGS HE MADE FOUR ERRORS. HE SAID, STEVE, CENTER FIELD, THE TIME RESUMES, AND THE FIRST PITCH, A FLY BALL OUT TO STEVE, IT HITS HIS GLOVE AND HE DROPS IT. THE COACH GOES NUTS, HE CALLS TIME OUT AND SAYS STEVE, YOU ARE OUT OF THERE. STEVE COMES TROTTING ACROSS THE FIELD INTO THE DUGOUT AND AS HE CRUSHES THE THIRD RACE LINE HE GRAB SOME OTHER NUMBERS AND SAYS, WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH YOU? GEORGE IS SCREWED UP CENTER FIELD SO BADLY THAT NO ONE CAN PLAY. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IT IS FUNNY BUT IT IS TRUE. IT IS FUNNY BUT IT IS TRUE. GEORGE HAS SCREWED UP CENTER FIELD THAT NO ONE WANTS TO PLAY WITH US. NOBODY WANTS TO PLAY WITH US.

 [APPLAUSE] FOR THE NEXT PRESIDENT TO GAIN THE CONFIDENCE, LITERALLY TO GAIN THE CONFIDENCE OF OTHER WORLD LEADERS, THE TEST FOR THE PRESIDENT WILL BE CAN THEY END THIS WAR IN IRAQ WITHOUT LEAVING CHAOS BEHIND? CAN THEY END THIS WAR IN IRAQ WITHOUT LEADING TO A REGIONAL WAR WHICH WILL AFFECT NOT ONLY THE REGION BUT THE REST OF THE WORLD? THAT IS WHAT OTHER WORLD LEADERS ARE LOOKING AT. LOOK, 

FOLKS, I KNOW I GOT IN TROUBLE -- I RAISED SOME CONTROVERSY A YEAR AND A HALF AGO WHEN I WAS ASKED ON "MEET THE PRESS," OR A SHOW LIKE THAT. I SAID THE PRESIDENT HAS NO PLAN TO WIN, HE HAS NO PLAN TO LEAVE. HIS ONLY PLAN IS TO HAND THIS OFF TO THE NEXT PRESIDENT. 

 IT TO ANY OF YOU DOUBT THAT THAT IS HIS PLAN? -- DO ANY OF YOU DOUBT THAT? HE MADE IT CRYSTAL CLEAR THAT THIS IS WHAT HE WOULD DO. THE MOMENT THE NEXT PRESIDENT IS SWORN INTO OFFICE, HE OR SHE LITERALLY BETWEEN RAISING THEIR RIGHT HAND AND PUTTING ON THE THEIR BALL GOWN OR TUXEDO TO GO TO THE INAUGURAL BALLS, WILL HAVE TO LITERALLY BE SITTING BEHIND A DESK CALLING OTHER WORLD LEADERS TO IMPLEMENT THE PLAN TO END THIS WAR. THERE IS ONLY ONE PLANT OUT THERE, THERE'S ONLY ONE, THERE'S ONLY ONE THAT IS RECEIVING THE OVERWHELMING SUPPORT FROM BOTH POLITICAL PARTIES, THERE IS ONLY ONE TO RECEIVE THE SUPPORT OF THE IRAQI LEADERSHIP THAT IS SPLIT AND KILLING ONE ANOTHER, THERE IS ONLY ONE THAT IS RECEIVED THE SUPPORT OF A SIGNIFICANT NUMBER OF OTHER WORLD LEADERS. I KNOW MOST OF THEM. NOT BECAUSE I AM IMPORTANT, JUST BECAUSE I HAD BEEN HANGING AROUND WITH THEM FOR THE LAST 35 YEARS. I HAVE BEEN ATTENDING A CONFERENCES WITH THEM WHEN THEY WERE YOUNG PARLIAMENTARIANS. 

 I KNOW THEM AND THEY KNOW THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO END AT THIS AND THAT IS TO SET UP A FEDERAL SYSTEM WITHIN IRAQ CONSISTENT WITH THEIR CONSTITUTION. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I GUARANTEE AS YOUR NEXT PRESIDENT, I WILL END THIS WAR. I WILL GET THE TROOPS HOME. I WILL NOT ONLY MAKE SURE THAT MY SON COMES HOME, BUT I WILL MAKE SURE THAT MY GRANDSON IS NOT HAVE TO GO BACK -- DOES NOT HAVE TO GO BACK. [APPLAUSE] UNTIL WE END THIS WAR, WE WILL NOT HAVE CREDIBILITY. WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO DEAL WITH PAKISTAN, IRAN, AFGHANISTAN, RUSSIA, CHINA. PEOPLE, WE NEED THE COOPERATION OF THE REST OF THE WORLD AND THEY NEED OUR LEADERSHIP. THERE IS THE SECOND REASON WHY I TALK ABOUT IRAQ. IRAQ IS ALSO AN IMPEDIMENT TO US IN DEALING WITH THE THINGS THAT MAKE ME A DEMOCRAT. THIS ELECTION IS ALL ABOUT SECURITY. IT IS NOT ONLY ABOUT OUR PHYSICAL SECURITY, IT IS NOT ONLY ABOUT OUR HOMELAND SECURITY, IT IS NOT ONLY ABOUT SECURITY IN THE STREETS SO YOU CAN WALK OUT AND NOT WORRY ABOUT DRUG DEALERS OR WHETHER YOUR KIDS ARE BEING SUCKED INTO A DRUG RING. IS NOT ONLY ABOUT THE PHYSICAL SAFETY OF OUR SCHOOLS, IT IS ABOUT ECONOMIC SECURITY. IT IS ABOUT HEALTH SECURITY PRINTED IT IS ABOUT EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY. -- IT IS ABOUT HEALTH SECURITY. IT IS ABOUT EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY. AS LONG AS WE ARE HEMORRHAGING $120 BILLION A YEAR IN THESE GOT AWFUL AND IT-- GOD-AWFUL AND OBSCENE TAX CUTS, HOW CAN WE DO WITH THESE ISSUES? I IMAGINE WHAT I CAN DO WITH $120 BILLION WE'RE SPENDING ON THIS WAR. I CAN MAKE SURE THAT EVERY SINGLE SOLITARY MAN, WOMAN, AND CHILD HAS HEALTH CARE. I CAN MAKE SURE THAT THE 40,000 -- 400,000 KIDS WHO GOT IT AND IS TO COLLEGE AND ARE UNABLE TO GO FOR FINANCIAL REASONS ARE ABLE TO GO. I CAN QUADRUPLE THE AMOUNT OF MONEY THAT WE INVEST IN ALTERNATE ENERGY SOURCES. I CAN MOVE IN A DIRECTION THAT LITERALLY ENHANCES THE POSSIBILITY OF CHILDREN CLIMBING OUT A POVERTY. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, UNTIL THIS WAR IS OVER, MY FLEXIBILITY AS YOUR PRESIDENT, NO MATTER WHAT ANYONE ELSE SAYS, IS SEVERELY CONSTRAINED BY THE AMOUNT OF MONEY THAT WE ARE HEMORRHAGING. I TALK ABOUT IRAQ A LOT, GOD WILLING MY GRANDCHILDREN WILL STUDY AND WHEN THEY DO THEIR SENIOR THESIS 25 YEARS FROM NOW OR 20 YEARS FROM NOW COME AT SOME GREAT UNIVERSITY, HOPEFULLY, THEY WILL WRITE AND LOOK BACK TO THE BEGINNING OF THE TWENTY FIRST CENTURY AND SAY THERE WERE THINGS MORE CONSEQUENTIAL THAN IRAQ -- GLOBAL WARMING, THE SPREAD OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS, THE INABILITY TO GRAB HOLD OF ARMS CONTROL ISSUES, ETC. IT ENDS RIGHT NOW. THIS INPUT AND IT PREVENTS US FROM DOING SO MUCH ELSE. THE SECOND POINT THAT I WANT TO MAKE IS THIS -- I AM SO FED UP WITH HEARING REPUBLICANS TALK ABOUT VALUES. I HAVE HAD IT UP TO HERE. [APPLAUSE] I CAN HARDLY WAIT TO DEBATE RUDY GIULIANI. I CAN HARDLY WAIT TO DEBATE MITT ROMNEY, I WAS COMING OUT OF MASS, SOME SUPPORTERS WERE KIND ENOUGH TO TAKE ME TO THE ST. PATRICK'S CHURCH IN COUNCIL BLUFFS AND THERE WERE A LOT OF NICE PEOPLE THERE. WE WERE GOING OFF TO MY NEXT EVENT AND PEOPLE WERE BEING VERY NICE AND THEY WANTED TO TAKE SOME PHOTOGRAPHS AND THINGS LIKE THAT. ONE COUPLE SAID, "I'M SURPRISED TO SEE YOU HERE AT MASS. " I SAID, WHY YOU SURPRISED? HE SAID, QUOTING WELL, YOU ARE A DEMOCRAT. " HE SAID, THAT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY HAS SO MUCH MORE VALUE AND MORAL STANDARDS. I LOOKED AT THEM AND I SAID, I JUST HEARD THE SAME GOSPEL YOU DID, I DO NOT RECALL SAYING CHRIST SAYING -- I DO NOT RECALL HEARING CHRIST SAYING THAT TORTURE WAS A GOOD THING. DID YOU HEAR ANYTHING THAT SOMEHOW IT WAS A GOOD IDEA THAT TO REWARD THE PHARISEES AND THE WEALTHY BUT NOT TO TAKE CARE OF THE KIDS? I DON'T REMEMBER HEARING THAT PART. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THESE GUYS IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY THAT ARE RUNNING, WITH THE POSSIBLE EXCEPTION OF JOHN MCCAIN, LISTEN TO WHAT THEY SAY. LISTEN TO WHAT THEY SAY. HELP CAN'T BE A HIGHER -- HOW CAN IT BE A HIGHER MORAL VALUE TO GIVE AN $85 BILLION TAX CUT TO PEOPLE WHOSE AVERAGE INCOME IS $1.4 MILLION A YEAR THEN IT IS TO INSURE EVERY CHILD IN AMERICA? HOW CAN THAT POSSIBLY BE A HIGHER MORAL VALUE? HOW CAN IT BE THAT IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, WE HAVE A REPUBLICAN PARTY WITH THE EXCEPTION OF JOHN MCCAIN, THE SENDING WATER BOARDING -- DEFENDING WATER BOARDING, EAVESDROPPING ON AMERICAN CITIZENS, INVASION OF OUR PRIVACY. HOW CAN THAT BE A VALUE THAT IS WORTH PURSUING, PROTECTING, AND CONTINUING IN THIS COUNTRY? LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THESE REPUBLICANS CONFUSED IDEOLOGY WITH MORALITY. THEY CONFUSE RHETORIC WITH ACTION. ONE OF THE THINGS, A MESSAGE TO YOU IS -- LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WE DEMOCRATS HAVE TO STOP BEING SO TIMID. WE HAVE TO STOP BEING AFRAID, WE HAVE TO STOP NOT TRUSTING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, NOT TRUSTING THAT THEY SHARE OUR VALUES. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE ASHAMED, WHETHER THEY HAVE ATEVER SET FOOT OUT OF THEIR CITY OR COUNTY, THAT ARE ASHAMED OF HOW WE ARE LOOKED AT IN THE WORLD. THEY KNOW THAT WE ARE GOOD PEOPLE. THEY KNOW THAT WE ARE A DECENT PEOPLE. THEY ARE ASHAMED OF THE FACT THAT WHEN THEY PICKED UP AT THE NATIONAL PRESS AND THE PAPERS AND FIND OUT HOW WE ARE REVIEWED BY THE REST OF THE WORLD. THEY ARE ANGRY ABOUT IT. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WE SHOULD NOT BE AFRAID TO SAY THAT WE OPPOSE TORTURE IN ANY FORM FOR ANY REASON AT ANY TIME FOR ANY CONSEQUENCE. [APPLAUSE] WE SHOULD STAND UP AND SAY WE WILL NOT IN ORDER TO FIGHT TERROR TONIGHT AMERICANS THEIR BASIC CIVIL LIBERTIES. -- A DENY AMERICANS THEIR BASIC CIVIL LIBERTIES. WE SHOULD NOT BE AFRAID TO SAY THAT WE ARE PREPARED, WE ARE PREPARED TO USE TAX DOLLARS TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERY SINGLE CHILD IN AMERICA HAS ACCESS TO A PHYSICIAN ON A REGULAR BASIS. WE SHOULD NOT BE AFRAID OF THIS STUFF. FOLKS, WE ARE SO USED TO THE REPUBLIC IS TALKING ABOUT US TAX-AND-SPEND DEMOCRATS. LET ME TELL YOU WHERE THE TAX AND SPEND PEOPLE ARE, WHEN THIS GUY TOOK OFFICE, GOD LOVE HIM, HE HAD A $200 BILLION SURPLUS. HE HAD A PROJECTED SURPLUS OF 5.8 TRILLION DOLLARS. I NOW REFER TO HIM AS [UNINTELLIGIBLE] IN SEVEN SHORT YEARS, HE HAS TURNED A PROJECTED SURPLUS OF ALMOST SIX TRILLION DOLLARS INTO A DEFICIT OF ALMOST FOUR TRILLION DOLLARS, THAT IS A 10 TRILLION DOLLAR HAT TRICK IN SEVEN YEARS. WHO COULD HAVE DONE THAT BUT HOUDINI? THIS IS NOT ABOUT THAT WE CANNOT AFFORD HEALTH CARE AND EDUCATION AND THE THINGS THAT WE CARE ABOUT, IT IS ABOUT CHANGING PRIORITIES. [APPLAUSE] THEY ARE SPENDING MONEY ON THE WRONG THINGS. WE WANT TO SPEND MONEY ON THE RIGHT THINGS AND BALANCE THE BUDGET IN THE PROCESS. LET ME REMIND YOU, WE BALANCED THE BUDGET. REMEMBER, EVEN DEMOCRATS FORGET THIS. EVEN THE DEMOCRATS FOR TO THIS. ALAN GREENSPAN, THE HIGH PRIEST OF FINANCE IN AMERICA AND MONETARY POLICY, HIS FIRST TESTIMONY BEFORE THE SENATE BUDGET COMMITTEE IN 2001, I BELIEVED IT WAS LATE JANUARY, IT COULD HAVE BEEN THE FIRST WEEK IN THAT JURY. HE SAID, I WILL PARAPHRASE, YOU CAN GO TO MY WEB SITE AND GET IT. HE SAID THAT WE ARE PAYING DOWN THE NATIONAL DEBT TO RAPIDLY. THAT IS WHAT HE SAID. HE ALSO SAID THAT THE DEMOCRATS ARE PAYING OFF THE NATIONAL DEBT WHEN THE WARRIORS WAS DEFLATIONARY -- WHEN THE WORRY WAS DEFLATION. THEREFORE, THEY JUSTIFIED THE ORGY OF TAX CUTS. WE BALANCED THE BUDGET AND WE PAID DOWN THE DEBT. WE DID NOT LAY ON OUR CHILDREN, THESE GUYS HAVE LAID UPON OUR CHILDREN AND GIVEN THEM TO THE CHINESE AND FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS, THE COST OF THE WAR AND THE COST OF THE TAX CUTS. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, FOUR MORE YEARS OF THIS WILL BE A DISASTER. FOLKS, YOU WILL SEE WHOEVER THE REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE IS CAMPAIGNING AS A MODERATE. REST ASSURED, IF THE NEXT PRESIDENT IS A REPUBLICAN, HIS NAME WILL BE GEORGE W. GIULIANI FOR GEORGE W. WHOEVER. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I WILL CONCLUDE BY SAYING THAT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING WE HAVE TO DO IS LEVEL WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.  

WE HAVE TO TRUST THEM A LITTLE BIT MORE. WE HAVE TO TELL THEM THE TRUTH AND GIVE THEM THE FACTS. WE HAVE TO TELL THEM WHAT THEY NEED TO KNOW, NOT WHAT THEY WANT TO HEAR. WE ARE A LOT TOUGHER, THEY ARE A LOT MORE STRONG THAN PEOPLE THINK THEY ARE PRINTED CANNOT TELL PEOPLE WHAT IS NOT TRUE. -- A LOT MORE STRONG THAN PEOPLE THINK THEY ARE. YOU CANNOT TELL PEOPLE WHAT IS NOT TRUE. 

YOU CANNOT TELL THEM THAT YOU WILL NOT SUPPORT FUNDING THE TROOPS BUT YOU WILL KEEP THEM IN THERE DURING YOUR FIRST TERM. YOU CANNOT TELL THINGS THAT TO NOT ADD UP. IT UNDERMINES THE CREDIBILITY OF OUR PARTY. YOU CANNOT CONTINUE TO BACK DOWN AND CONTINUE TO GIVE THEM VOTES ON DECLARING THE IRANIAN MILITARY FORCE A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION AND NOT UNDERSTANDING THE CONSEQUENCE OF THAT THAT WILL GO UP 25 THERE WAS A BARREL. THERE'S A SECURITY PREMIUM. -- $25 A GIRL. -- $25 A BARREL.  

THE MORE WE RATTLE THE SABER AND THE MORE WE TALK ABOUT WAR, THE MORE THE PRICE OF GASOLINE AND OIL GOES UP BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE WORRIED ABOUT IT. THEY ARE WORRIED ABOUT WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF THERE IS A WAR. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WE HAVE TO GET SMARTER.  

I AM ABSOLUTELY CONVINCED IF WE JUST LEVEL WITH PEOPLE, THEY WILL BE WITH US, TELL THEM THE TRUTH. THEY ARE NOT AFRAID TO TAKE ANY OF THE CHALLENGES THAT WE HAVE. I WILL CONCLUDE BY SAYING, YOU HEARD ME SAY IN ONE FORM OR ANOTHER BEFORE, AND ENGINE IF IMAGINE IF ON SEPTEMBER 15TH, 2001,  

THE PRESIDENT COULD HAVE SAID THAT WE HAVE BEEN DEALT A TRAGIC BLOW, 3000 OF OUR CITIZENS HAVE BEEN MURDERED, OUR ECONOMY IS IN DEEP TROUBLE. LIKE A FREE GENERATION -- LIKE EVERY GENERATION BEFORE US, 

WE WILL BE BETTER BEFORE. I MAKE TWO ANNOUNCEMENTS, I CALLED A MEETING OF THE WORLD'S MAJOR POWERS TO MEET ON OCTOBER 1ST SILICON BEGAN TO JOINTLY PLAN THE DEMISE OF THE RISE OF RADICAL FUNDAMENTALISM. -- ON OCTOBER 1ST TO BEGIN A PLAN. THIS WILL FREE US FROM THE IRON GRIP OF OLIGARCHS OF OIL BUT IT WILL REQUIRE SACRIFICE. 

 I ASK YOU AS PATRIOTIC AMERICANS TO JOIN ME IN MAKING THE SACRIFICE. WHO WOULD HAVE SAID THAT IS TOO TOUGH? DO NOT ASK ME TO DO THAT. WHAT NATION IN THE WORLD WOULD NOT HAVE SHOWN UP?  

WE HAD THE WORLD IN THE PALM OF OUR HANDS, AND FREE NATION, EVEN THOSE WHO ARE NOT FRIENDLY, WERE PREPARED TO SUPPORT US. EUROPE SAID, NATO SAID, AN ATTACK ON AMERICA IT IS AN ATTACK ON ALL OF US, WE ARE ALL OUT WAR.  

40,000 IRANIANS WENT TO THE ABANDONED AMERICAN EMBASSY AND LAID FLOWERS AND CANDLES. THE ENTIRE WORLD WAS PREPARED TO HELP BECAUSE THEY SAW THE VERY THING HAPPENING TO THEMSELVES. WHAT DID THIS PRESIDENT DO? HE SAID, FLY AND GO TO THE MALL, 

REMEMBER? AS MY BROTHER WOULD SAY, THE PRESIDENT HAS AN INSTINCT FOR THE CAPILLARY AS OPPOSED TO THE JUGULAR. IT WAS NECESSARY STUFF, BUT SO SMALL. THIS PRESIDENT WILL BE JUDGED VERY HARSHLY. NOT FOR THE MISTAKES THAT HE IS MADE, BUT HE WILL BE JUDGED HARSHLY FOR THE OPPORTUNITIES THAT HE SQUANDERED. 

 MY MESSAGE TO YOU IS, THE NEXT DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE AND OUR PARTY WILL BE JUDGED HARSHLY BY HISTORY IF THEY DO NOT TRUST THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ENOUGH TO UNDERSTAND THE SENTIMENT THAT RESIDES IN THEIR HEARTS IN THE YEAR 2007. MY FAVORITE POLL IS A GUY NAMED SHAME A STEAMY -- SEAMUS HANEY. IT CAN CONVEY AN EMOTION AND IDEA BETTER THAN A BOOK OF PROSE. I THINK HE CAPTURED, ALTHOUGH HE IS WRITING ABOUT SOMETHING DIFFERENT, 

HE CAPTURED WHAT I THINK IT'S A SENTIMENT OF MOST AMERICANS RIGHT NOW. HE SAID IN ONE OF THE STANCESOF"HISTORY TEACHES US NOT TO HOLD THIS SIDE OF THE GRAVE THE LONG FORWARD TIDAL WAVE OF JUSTICE RISES UP AND HOPE AND HISTORY BRIDE. " JOIN ME IN DOING THIS, BECAUSE I PROMISE YOU THAT IT IS WITHIN THE CAPACITY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. IT IS IN THE CAPACITY FOR THE LEADERSHIP OF A NEW PRESIDENT TO LITERALLY CHANGE THE DIRECTION OF THE WORLD AND REINVIGORATE THIS COUNTRY THAT WE'VE NOT SEEN SINCE WORLD WAR II. THAT IS WHAT I BELIEVE THAT WE CAN DO, WE DEMOCRATS HAVE TO ONCE AGAIN TRUST THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND TELL THEM THE TRUTH. IF YOU DO, THEY WILL RESPOND. THANK YOU FOR LISTENING AND I WOULD BE HAPPY TO TAKE ANY QUESTIONS. [APPLAUSE] YES, MA'AM? >> I AND A DISENFRANCHISED
