Onward Christian Soldiers

Many of you are asking if I was truly unaware of my Jewish heritage until the other day. Let me assure you that yes, of course, my statement is true. I had absolutely no inkling of a whisp of an idea.

Now, I first heard an accusation that I had Jewish blood well over a decade ago. And it came up periodically over the years. But I naturally assumed it was just people casting aspersions. You never think something like that could actually be true. You never think something like this can happen to you.

Now it has. (And apparently there's no mistake here, because we've looked into every possible angle.) So I am proudly standing up to embrace my heritage and the fact that, according to the Torah, I was born a Jew... with... Jewish blood flowing through my... own veins.

Thanks for standing by me during this difficult and trying time. We must all try to remember that Jesus himself was a Jew. And Jews are known as "God's chosen people." Perhaps this is God's way of telling Virginians to choose George Felix Allen for Senate. God works in mysterious ways.

Whatever the case, you should all know that I still intend to represent you as a loyal Christian Republican.

Your Son of the South,

Fightin' Felix

Dear Felix,

I will certainly stand by you in this dark hour of your career; I think it was *shameful and shocking* that you were forced to admit, to having a connection to the Christ-murdering peanut-eatin' hook-noses. I'm glad that you stood your ground (at least at the beginning) and repelled all such aspersions cast at you; they were truelly disgustin'. I'm sure you will not fry in hell for yur mother's sins.

Yeah, it's true (maybe) that Jesus was a Jew. But we got rid of his Jewish outer shell good an' proper, didn't we? And his spirit is as white, blue-eyed and blond-haired as could be. Like yourself, in fact...

PS I'm glad you're chosen and protected on every front...

I'm surprised that so much is being made of him having one Jewish grandfather - a grandfather's ethnic specs aren't something that most of us pay great attention to.
And nobody is talking about how Allen copied Durbin's homework, an incident far more telling about Allen's character.
Let's have a website called
allencopiesdurbinshomework.org!

Oh, who *cares* about Durbin; he's just a ninny and a wimp, who don't even know the difference between "shall" and "will". I'm glad our Senator got his new! improved! version in first, before everyone in the Senate got confused by Durbin's grammatically incorrect one.

To come back to The Subject... I'm sooo glad to hear, Senator, that you like ham sandwiches and pork chops; it'a another thing we have in common. I always like to find common planks in the bridge between your exalted position and my own, ordinary (commmon? ha ha)one.

It may not be quite on topic, but I do have a burning question (but *not* a burning bush one. Ha ha)... The liberal media have ben carping so much recently on all the "fake" aspects (fake Virginian, fake cowboy, fake compassionate, fake
conservative, and now fake Christian)...

Your boots are *real snakeskin*, aren't they?

PS. Anon, if that's a real website, it's not a one-click one; I couldn't access it (and ah ain't typin' it in, nohow!). Anyway, it's Webb who's a one-issue candidate, not us. See for yourself -- his single issue seems to be to try and combat-boot our Senator from his place. Low class tactics.

I thought one was Jewish if one's mother was Jewish, so what's all this talk about grandfathers anyway? I'm confused.

"I thought one was Jewish if one's mother was Jewish, so what's all this talk about grandfathers anyway? I'm confused."

Yeah, it *is* a bit confusing, unless you're a dedicated racial purist (which I'm sure Felix is; just to busy to quibble about minor points. Besides, he won't patronize you and assume that you know less than he does; that's just the sterling guy he is)

80+ yrs ago (when Etta was born), grandmothers were no-count, *except* in the Jewish culture. So it's not surprising she's never mentioned, especially if she had not shared grandpa's fate (incarceration). But, if the grandpa was "it", chances are so was the grandma. So Etta would have been 100% both by blood and by -- *their* -- religion. While Felix is 50% by blood and 100% by -- *their* -- religion. For us, blood doesn't matter (unless a macaca shows), and his religion is 100% right, of course.

Dear Senator,

Apologies for two posts one right after another, but I wanted to make sure you'd notice this one...

PLEASE, please, can your campaign start rebutting the currently circulating piece of dirt? I don't give a d*** about your blood/religion statistics; I know you're a true, all-encompassing, compassionate to those less-blessed, but they're taking advantage of your generous heart.

They're now saying that your grandpa was not interned by Nazis. They're saying he was nailed by the Allies, after the Nazis had left Tunisia. For being a collaborator with the Vichy (sounds like soda to me, but that's what they sayin) govt...

I hope that's not true. I don't mind your being a kike -- in whatever proportion -- but I'd hate to think you had a Judas in your family tree. Jesus was not a jew, but Judas was; I know that from my priest. And if my acquaintances who say Jesus was a jew also should be right, then you'd be a jew twice over. I don't think I could stand the disappointment.

Yours, terribly disturbed

George Felix Allen is the man!!

Hannity gave an awesome speech the other night:
http://bigredlance.blogspot.com/2006/10/george-allen-rally-with-sean-hannity.html

Sen. Allen should be proud of his new-found Jewish roots. Why does the MSM have to make such a big deal about this? They'll do anything to tear down Sen. Allen, and that's just plain dumb.

Allen's Undisclosed Stock Options Were Worth Up to $1.1 Million

By Michael Forsythe and Miles Weiss

Oct. 10 (Bloomberg) -- Stock options that Senator George Allen described as worthless were worth as much as $1.1 million at one point, according to a review of Senate disclosure forms and U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filings.

The records appear to contradict remarks he made to the Associated Press. ``I got paid in stock options which were worthless,'' AP quoted him as saying.

Allen served as a board member of Chantilly, Virginia-based Xybernaut Corp. from 1998 until December 2000 and was awarded options on 110,000 shares during that period. His Senate financial disclosure form for 1999, required for candidates as well as officeholders, doesn't report that he owned the options.

The stock options issue didn't arise during a televised debate last night between Allen, a 54-year-old Republican, and Democratic nominee Jim Webb, 60. Nevertheless, Mark Rozell, a professor of public policy at George Mason University in Arlington, Virginia, said the issue poses a problem for Allen, who polls show is in a close race with Webb.

``In an election season in which congressional ethics and morality are at the top of public discussion, Allen may now be seen by much of the public as part of a larger problem afflicting his party,'' Rozell said.

Allen left Xybernaut at the end of 2000 after he was elected to the Senate. The company makes portable computers that can be strapped to the body for military or civilian uses.

SEC records showed that Allen owned 60,000 options at the end of 1999, worth $38,200. For 2000 and 2001, he filed amendments to his annual disclosures stating that he owned Xybernaut options.

60,000 Options

In March 2000, Allen held 60,000 options when Xybernaut shares closed at an all-time high of $23.75. That would have made the options worth $1.1 million, less commissions and fees, had Allen exercised them.

At that time, Allen could have paid $5.47 and $1.56 respectively for two groups of options, sold them and pocketed the difference. He was awarded another 50,000 options in October 2000.

Greg Walden, an attorney at Patton Boggs LLP in Washington who represents Allen, said the options with Xybernaut expired 90 days after Allen left the board in December 2000.

Walden said Allen never exercised the options. They became worthless as the share price fell. The company went bankrupt in 2005.

A filing by Allen, which Xybernaut forwarded to the SEC in February 2001, shows that he had the right to exercise all the options at the end of 2000. The options were to begin to expire in 2008. Allen also reported owning the options on his 2002 and 2003 Senate financial disclosures, long after Walden said they had expired.

Chief Executive

Xybernaut Chief Executive Perry Nolen referred reporters to Allen's Senate office. ``I've helped them by providing information to them. So it should be accurate,'' Nolen said.

The company, which now has a market capitalization of less than $1 million, raised $173 million from investors since first going public 10 years ago. It never had a profitable quarter.

By the end of 2000, Xybernaut's share price had plummeted to $1.69, and Allen's options were worth just $1,300.

In 2001, Allen's first year in the U.S. Senate, the company's share price recovered to $5.46 on May 25, which would have valued 110,000 options at $71,500 before commissions and other brokerage fees. Some of the options exceeded their strike price as recently as July 2004.

Allen wrote a letter to the U.S. Army on Xybernaut's behalf in December 2001, AP reported, citing John Reid, Allen's spokesman, who told AP he wouldn't disclose the contents of the letter. In September 2003 the U.S. Defense Department announced $2.13 million in contracts to buy the company's wearable computers.

Accounting Rule Change

In the Senate, Allen opposed an accounting rule change that requires companies to list options as an expense on their financial reports. Allen co-sponsored a measure to block the rule change and in a hearing that year linked the awarding of stock options to increasing the security of U.S. troops in Iraq.

He said stock options make investments in technology companies more attractive, leading to innovations that helped make ``it safer for our men and women in uniform.''

Allen's double-digit lead in the race was eroded following a comment he made about one of Webb's Indian-American campaign workers and media reports alleging he made racial slurs against blacks while a student at the University of Virginia in the 1970s. He has denied making racial slurs.

Dear Felix,

I am so sorry to hear that you are Jewish. Jesus must be rolling in his grave... er, his cloud... I know you felt singled out and demeaned by people wanting to know if you knew your roots. Congratulations by refuting them all with the ham sandwich comment -- very appropriate and adult of you.

I only hope your children never find out that you are Jewish. Otherwise, they may feel discriminated against. Your mother was wise to try and hide the truth from you because we know what Virginians think of Jews.

I will support you regardless of your race/religion/chewing tobacco. I applaud your defense of our country by insisting that more troops die to defend George Bush's honor. Thank you for staying the course. God (christian or jewish) bless Felix!

Dear Felix,

I am very disappointed. It is the evening of Nov 8 and you have not announced victory yet. Why not???

Surely, for someone of your experience, it would have been an easy task to ignore the 7+thousand vote difference *now* and fix the problem later?

In the meantime, Webb's crowing all over the place, celebrating his presumed "win", and you're taking it lying down. Why??? What are you waiting for? If you wait any longer, people will brand you as a "sore loser"

Announce a victory immediately, I beg you. And request a recount while you're at it. I hear there are plenty of little pockets in some parts of VA which may show only 400 registered voters but which would be willing to show 10 000 votes for you, if the price was right.

Please, please, please... If you don't move *soon*, all's lost and macacas win.

Yours, in dispair,
