Biden and Palin, "Tests" and Predictions
First there was Jeremiah Wright, and his parallel in the McCain/Palin camp, Thomas Murthee, the Third Wave witchhunter who launched Palin's political career.
Then there was Bill Ayers and his Palin doppelganger, the militant Alaskan secessionist and founder of the Alaskan Independence Party, Joe Vogler. Vogler had sought and received sponsorship from Iran to address the UN on the subject of Alaskan secession but was murdered in 1993 in a "plastic explosives deal gone bad."
We had ACORN on the left, and the purging of swing-state voter rolls on the right.
Then there was the abortion issue.
Palin castigated Obama for failing to vote in favor of the Born Alive Infant Protection Act in Illinois ( he voted "present" instead), even though Sarah in effect did likewise in Alaska by denying the Alaskan state legislature's request for extra debates on two anti-abortion bills (one requiring minors to obtain parental consent before having abortions and another outlawing partial-birth abortion except to save the life of the mother) and by refusing to allow the bills to be attached to the agenda of a special legislative session being held on her TOP legislative priority -- a new natural gas pipeline -- saying,
"Alaskans know I am pro-life and have never wavered in my belief in the sanctity of every human life. These issues are so important they shouldn't be diluted with oil and gas deliberations."
And, latest but not least, there's this.
Speaking at a fundraiser in Seattle on Sunday night, Joe Biden said:
“Mark my words, it will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We’re about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here . . . we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.”
Palin jumped on this immediately, saying,
"Biden's statement is the most bizarre yet. What the heck does that mean? Biden was suggesting that Obama is not prepared for the job. Even Biden believes that Obama is not ready to lead."
....and of course the right wing conspiracy nuts had a field day, twisting Biden's words into a dark insinuation that perhaps plans have already been made for just such a "test", should Obama be elected, and that Biden has prior knowledge of such plans.
But, look what was coming out of the Third Wave Church Movement (Palin's church is a participant in the Third Wave) back in September, a FULL MONTH before Biden's statement:
INTERCESSORS GO TO RED ALERT
FROM MARY GLAZIER, OF ALASKA
Subject: WARNING OF IMMINENT ATTACK
Date: Mon, 22 Sep 2008 14:45:43 -0800
Let me know if you receive anything,
Now, this in itself would hold little significance, were it not for the fact that Sarah Palin is a member of Mary Glazier's PRAYER GROUP -- McCain's vice presidential cantidate is a party to this stuff.
"There was a twenty-four year old woman that God began to speak to about entering into politics. She became a part of our prayer group out in Wasilla. Years later, became the mayor of Wasilla. And last year was elected Governor of the state of Alaska. Yes! Hallelujah! At her inauguration she dedicated the state to Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! Hallelujah!"
