7 Teens Charged With Hate Crimes After Beating A 15-Year-Old Boy

Did I mention the 7 teens are black and the victim is Hispanic? (The media hasn't mentioned if the victim was a "white" Hispanic.)

From KATU.com:

The March 14 beating in Palmdale was captured on video and posted on YouTube, but has since been removed from the site. The seven boys, ages 13 to 16, were arrested Wednesday for investigation of assault and committing a hate crime, Lt. Don Ford said. [...]

During the beating, the teens made racially derogatory statements that were captured on the video, Ford said.

After the victim fell to the ground, the assailants kicked him multiple times in the head, knocked out several teeth and left shoe impressions on his skin, Ford said.

Would the authorities tell us if this senseless beating was in response to the Trayvon Martin case? Al Sharpton did call on his supporters to 'escalate' civil disobedience if George Zimmerman wasn't arrested.

No word, yet, if the victim looks like Obama's son would look if he had a son...

Sheriff: Concealed Weapon Saves Church From Man Armed With Shotgun

pistol.jpg

Epic WIN!

BOILING SPRINGS, S.C. (AP) — A South Carolina sheriff is praising a man with a concealed weapons permit who helped disarm someone who kicked in the door of a church armed with a shotgun[...]

Jesse Gates had already been to the Southside Freewill Baptist Church in Boiling Springs once Sunday morning, so the pastor’s grandson was keeping his eye on the parking lot when he saw Gates come back, this time taking a shotgun out of his trunk, Wright said.

They locked the door and they were calling 911 at the time. He didn’t draw his weapon or make any move or action toward this gentleman until he kicked the door open and forced the issue,” Wright said.

After Gates kicked in the door, the pistol pointed at him distracted him enough that the pastor was able to grab the shotgun. Members of the church kept him down until deputies arrived, Wright said.

Confirmed: French Mass Murderer Tied to Belgian Extremists, YouTube, & Google (UPDATED)

A banner promoting Cenored31's book

You guys remember Censored31? He's the Belgian al Qaeda supporter who used to troll the comments section. I goof on him from time to time. He's part of a network of extremists centered in Belgium, but which is also active in France and the Netherlands.

It's a small, small world:

A family with jihadist connections

Merah's path to radicalism remains murky but appears to have been influenced by family connections. His mother is married to Sabri Essid, a member of a Toulouse network that tried to recruit fighters to join al Qaeda in Iraq. Essid was convicted in a French court in 2009 after being detained in Syria in 2006 where he was running an al Qaeda safe house.

According to French security officials, Merah tried to visit his stepfather in prison in 2008 and sent him money.

His brother Abdelkader was also suspected of involvement in the same network but not charged. He has now been charged with complicity in the recent spate of murders.

A senior Belgian counterterrorism official has told CNN that Abdelkader Merah first came to their notice during a joint investigation in 2008 with French police into a Brussels, Belgium-based jihadist recruitment network. The network was sending Belgian and French militants to Cairo en route to join militants in Iraq -- and may also have connected Europeans to jihadist groups in the Afghanistan-Pakistan border region

So, Merah was on everyone's radar, yet no one did a thing about him? That's nice. Makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.

Not so incidentally, even though the leadership of Shariah4Belgium is sitting in jail their website continues to operate. Notice their avatar in the upper left hand corner of their webpage. That's al Qaeda's flag.

sharia4belgium_al-qaeda-flag.jpg

And just in case al Qaeda's flag being part of the banner representing the group was too subtle, they have this message from Osama bin Laden in their link banner rotation.

sharia4belgium_bin_laden.jpg

Didn't Mohammad Merah say he was motivated to kill little Jewish kids as revenge for what was happening in Palestine? It's almost as if he got that idea from somewhere.....

And our old friend Censored31? He wrote a book on how awesome al Qaeda is.

Here is their YouTube channel. Check out the videos. You'll notice that the number one visual motif common to them is .... the black flag of al Qaeda.

Howie complained about them to YouTube. The response he got was that Google's employees over at YouTube couldn't find anything in the videos that violated their TOS.

They openly fly the flag of al Qaeda, and Google thinks it's fine. I wonder how they'll feel when one of the victim's families sues them for wrongful death?

UPDATE: SH and I posted about the same time, so I just combined the meat of her post with this one. So, consider this a joint post between Rusty and SH.

NBC News Edits Zimmerman's 911 Call

Another glaring example of media bias.

From Breitbart:

In an NBC segment featuring George Zimmerman's 911 call on the night of the Trayvon Martin shooting, Zimmerman is heard saying: “This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.”

The full version, though, unfolds like this:

Zimmerman: “This guy looks like he’s up to no good, or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about.”
911 operator: “Okay. And this guy, is he white black or Hispanic?”
Zimmerman: “He looks black.”

NewsBusters discovered MSNBC.com made the same deceptive edit in their reporting.

This man will never get a fair trial.

Worst President Ever Number of the Week: $5.7 Billion

It's been five days since we've updated how much federal debt the Obama administration has racked up.

Five days, exactly $5,723,093,876.10 more federal debt.

It's a long number, so I'll shorten it for those of you having a hard time wrapping your head around 12 digits: The President's policies have put us $5.7 billion more in the hole .... this week.

To put that into context, the so-called "Buffet Rule" which Obama proposes to help "reduce the deficit" would raise less in one year than his administration overspent this week.

Caroline Glick: The State Department's Jerusalem syndrome

I went to the US Consulate this week to take care of certain family business. It was a thoroughly unpleasant experience. I think it is ironic that two days after my extremely unpleasant experience at the consulate, State Department Spokeswoman Victoria Nuland refused to say what the capital of Israel is. It was ironic because anyone who visits the consulate knows that the US's position on Jerusalem is in perfect alignment with that of Israel's worst enemies.
She ends with this, think about it [emphasis mine]:
Israelis who live in Jerusalem and need US consular services are required to go to the consulate in Jerusalem. You can't just go to Tel Aviv to avoid the unpleasantness. This again is due to the fact that the US does not recognize ANY Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem. From the State Department's perspective, people who live in Jerusalem -- even in Arnona and Rehavia and Ein Kerem etc. -- live in a DIFFERENT COUNTRY from people who live in Tel Aviv and Netanya. We can no more receive services from the embassy in Tel Aviv than we can receive services from the embassy in Amman.

I will be writing more about the US's adversarial treatment of Israel as embodied in its treatment of Jerusalem in next week's Jerusalem Post column. But suffice it to say here that Victoria Nuland's statement to AP reporter Matt Lee, (posted below in case you missed it), is a true depiction of America's policy on Jerusalem - and though it, on Israel.

Be sure and read it all

(Covington, Kentucky) A Kenton County grand jury has indicted 26-year-old Sarah Jones, a Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader who formerly taught at Dixie Heights High School, on charges of sexual abuse of a minor and unlawful use of electronics to induce a minor into sex.

Upon conviction, each charge is punishable by up to five years in prison.

Sarah's mother, Cheryl Jones, has also been indicted on a charge of tampering with evidence in the same case and faces a possible five years in prison if convicted.

Both Sarah and Cheryl Jones were booked into custody at the Kenton County Jail and released on bond.

'He Has Stolen Our Prick!'

ha-ha-god.jpg

In Nigeria, a good Samaritan assisted a man in a wheelchair only to discover the handicapped man stole his penis! When he began beating the man, presumably to get his penis back, other men rushed to defend the crippled man.

However, no good deed goes unpunished. As they helped the victim back into his wheelchair, they discovered that their penises (peni?) had been stolen as well!

“The shouts of, he has stolen our prick rented the air, which attracted great crowd, some of whom joined now in beating the Hausa cripple and eventually succeeded in burning his wheelchair”, they further told our reporter.

Before he could be lynched, police reportedly arrived on the scene and took them, that is, the four boys and the cripple to the Divisional Police station, Kala, along Mile 4, Ikwerre Road, Port Harcourt.

Visual examines confirmed all four penises were still intact on their rightful owners, though the men did complain their restored organs were now "lifeless." A medical examine indicated all four men were physically normal. No word on their mental conditions.

How Did bin-Laden Live Undetected in Pakistan?

AP via Google:

A widow of Osama bin Laden has told investigators that the al-Qaida leader lived in five safe houses while on the run in Pakistan and fathered four children — two of them born in government hospitals.

They raise fresh questions over how bin Laden was able to remain undetected for so long.

Answer: He didn't.... He never was "missing in Pakistan". Even entertaining the thought that he was is ridiculous.

French Detain 19 Muslim Terrorists

Time:

A police investigator told The Associated Press that the anti-terrorist section of the Criminal Brigade detained five men before dawn in Paris who had suspected links to an Islamist movement. Weapons were also seized, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity in line with the department's rules.

The other arrests took place in Toulouse, Marseille, Nantes and Lyon, the official said, adding that these raids were not linked to the inquiry into the slayings in Toulouse and Montauban.'

In Nantes, the head of Forsane Alizza, a radical Muslim group that formed two years ago, was among the detained. In October 2011, a preliminary inquiry was opened into the Forsane Alizza organization, and the French Interior Ministry broke up the group in February.

B. Majeed allegedly slit his 16-year-old daughter Lidya's throat after finding pictures of Tatlıtuğ and several other male actors on her cell phone, Turkey's daily Vatan reported.

Majeed allegedly sent his wife and children away so that he could be left alone with Lidya. "The father decided to kill his daughter and made plans for the murder," the report said.

Two Journalists Killed in Syria

LA Times' Blog:

Two freelance British journalists were shot and killed by Syrian security forces Monday in a town near the Turkish border in Idlib province, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists.

The journalists, both of Algerian descent, along with a third who was injured in the incident, were shooting a documentary about Syrians fleeing the conflict into Turkey, CPJ reported, citing media sources.

The statement came as another media watchdog group said a Syrian photographer had been kidnapped and killed. Neither report could be independently confirmed early Tuesday given the restrictions placed on independent media by the Syrian regime.

The two British journalists were identified as Naseem Intriri and Walid Bledi by the Spanish newspaper El Mundo.

She's against vigilantism, but she posted George Zimmerman's parents' address on twitter. Maybe she wants a beer summit. After second thoughts (and more than a few criticisms), Roseanne deleted the re-tweet.

She then threatened to post it again and go to Zimmerman's parents' house herself if authorities didn't act:

I wouldn't be scared of Roseanne. I'd say, "Bring it, bi@tch!" Unless she threatened to sing when she got there. In that case, I'd turn myself in.

CERN Scientist on Trial for al Qaeda Plot

Meet Dr. Adlene Hicheur, a physicist who worked at CERN and an aspiring member of al Qaeda. And how did he become radicalized and through what medium did he try to join an al Qaeda cell? The internet:

French anti-terrorist services have said they first flagged Hicheur because of his frequent visits to radical Islamic websites. However, the order for the scientist’s arrest came only after he began exchanging emails with “Shadow Phoenix”, the alleged pseudonym of Moustapha Debchi, a key player in the north African branch of al Qaeda.

Of the 35 emails allegedly exchanged between the two men, one will feature prominently during Hicheur’s trial. In June 2009, Debchi asked Hicheur: "Don't beat around the bush: are you prepared to work in a unit becoming active in France?"

The scientist replied: "Concerning your proposal, the answer is of course YES..."

The usual model of internet radicalization is of a young guy with an empty head which is filled with violent propaganda. But what do we make of one of France's most prominent physicists being radicalized the same way? It cannot be the case that these radicals are being "misled" because "they just don't know any better".

The answer, of course, has to be that they must already have been predisposed to violent radicalism:

In an interview with centre-left daily Le Monde, Hicheur’s lawyer, Patrick Baudouin, said his client was a moderate Muslim who was interested in his religion from a young age. He also said he developed a “critical view of the world”, in particular over the Iraq War and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Well, there you go. One man's moderate is another man's terrorist.

The terrorists in Fatah are constantly telling themselves that they are moderates, not like those crazy fanatics in Hamas. And the guys in Hamas consider themselves moderates, not like those crazy al Qaeda types. And so forth, and so on.

It's the problem many Muslims never seem to grapple with when the move to the West. In their own societies they may be very much a moderate. But measured against Western values they really are in the radical fringes.

When his family defends his al Qaeda sympathies written on Islamist forums and in emails with members of al Qaeda as "free speech", then it's not a stretch to infer that the family doesn't quite get what a "moderate" really looks like in the West.

I also can't help but wonder if his extensive stints within the walls of academia weren't just as important in shaping his worldview of who "the enemy" really was as was his religious upbringing? He spent time at some of the world's most prestigious universities -- for instance, Stanford -- where Marxist and other radicals find their ideas have a home.

Combine the two -- Leftist ideology and Islamic supremacy -- and that's just a recipe for disaster.

Ron Ben-Yishai: US Administration making deliberate effort to hinder Iran strike by leaking classified info

Yes Israel, Obama sux as CIC...

The United States is leaking information to the media in order to avert an Israeli strike in Iran: The US Administration recently shifted into high gear in its efforts to avert an Israeli strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities by the end of the year. The flood of reports in the American media in recent weeks attests not only to the genuine US fear that Israel intends to realize its threats; moreover, it indicates that the Obama Administration has decided to take its gloves off.

Indeed, in recent weeks the Administration shifted from persuasion efforts vis-à-vis decision-makers and Israel’s public opinion to a practical, targeted assassination of potential Israeli operations in Iran. This “surgical strike” is undertaken via reports in the American and British media, but the campaign’s aims are fully operational: To make it more difficult for Israeli decision-makers to order the IDF to carry out a strike, and what’s even graver, to erode the IDF’s capacity to launch such strike with minimal casualties.

The first and most important American objective is to eliminate potential operational options available to the IDF and the State of Israel. I have no intention of detailing or even hinting to the options which the US government aims to eliminate by exposing them in the media. A large part of the reports stem from false information or disinformation, and there is no reason to reveal to the Iranians what’s real and what isn’t. However, it is blatantly clear that reports in the past week alone have caused Israel substantive diplomatic damage, and possibly even military and operational damage. [More...]

Gawd..

The father of Shaima Alawadi, the Muslim woman beaten to death in her own home, wants to know the killer's motive:

Lakeside, California: The husband of an Iraqi-American woman who was found bludgeoned to death with a threatening note beside her made his first public remarks on Tuesday and demanded to know what motivated her killer.

Despite the media and pro-Islamic advocates all but declaring this crime to be the product of Islamophobic hate, the police believe it to be an isolated incident.

An anti-Muslim killer on the loose in one of the largest Iraqi communities in the country and police are not concerned about other violence by the same person? The police must be confident Shaima was specific target and not a random victim.

Another Witness In The Trayvon Martin Case

Another witness corroborates Zimmerman's account of the events that led to Trayvon Martin's death. This time, it's a young teen who lives in the area. Unfortunately, the media may have violated ethics standards by publishing the under aged witness's name. I have removed it in quoting this ABC News article:

In addition, an eyewitness, 13-year-old [Ed: name omitted because of age], told police he saw a man fitting Zimmerman's description lying on the grass moaning and crying for help just seconds before he heard the gunshot that killed Martin.

Also note in the same article, Martin's girlfriend's account of what she heard over the phone corroborates Zimmerman's account! Zimmerman claims he lost sight of Martin and started to return to his vehicle. It was then that Martin approached Zimmerman, asked him if him had a problem, and then attacked:

Martin's girlfriend had said in a recording obtained exclusively by ABC News that she heard Martin ask Zimmerman "why are your following me, and then the man asked, what are you doing around here." She then heard a scuffle break out and the line went dead.

"Why are you following me?" Other accounts have Martin using expletives. But giving him the benefit of doubt, and given Zimmerman was acting as a neighborhood Watch volunteer, the response is appropriate: "What are you doing around here?"

Martin didn't have to answer. He could have walked away. Or, he could have explained he was new in the neighborhood. Or, he could have told Zimmerman to f--k off and mind his own business.

But instead, he opted to viciously attack Zimmerman. At which point, Zimmerman had no choice but to defend himself.

In related news, The Daily Caller has discovered a second Twitter account Trayvon Martin used. A whole different image of Martin is emerging. The question is, will it get out to the public in time to save Zimmerman from being lynched?

Soldier Throws Himself in Front of Vehicle to Save Afghan Girl

Blogs.cnn:

According to the Rhode Island National Guard and the U.S. Army, Weichel was in a convoy a week ago with his unit in Laghman Province, in northeast Afghanistan. Some children were in the road in front of the convoy, and Weichel and other troops got out to move them out of the way.

Most of the children moved, but one little girl went back to pick up some brass shell casings in the road. Afghan civilians often recycle the casings, and the girl appeared to aim to do that. But a Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected vehicle was moving toward her, according to Lt. Col. Denis Riel of the Rhode Island National Guard.

MRAPs, as they are known, usually weigh more than 16 tons.

Weichel saw the massive truck bearing down on the girl and grabbed her out of the way. But in the process, the armored truck ran him over, Riel said.

The little girl is fine. Weichel died a short time later of his injuries.

War On Blacks Continues

Another unarmed black man gunned downed - this time by police:

Pasadena, Calif., police arrested a 911 caller Wednesday accused of fabricating an armed robbery story that led to the death of a black college student.

Kendrec McDade, 19, was shot dead by police in the city's northwest district at around 11:00pm last Saturday, the Pasadena Star-News reported.

Police were dispatched to the scene after a man, identified as Oscar Carillo, called 911 and said he had been robbed by two armed men who stole his laptop and backpack as he was buying tacos. [...]

McDade was shot dead after he allegedly made a motion towards his waistband, Pasadena police Lt. Phlunte Riddle said. A second officer also opened fire in fear for his colleague's safety. Sanchez also confirmed the initial shots were fired from inside the patrol car.

The teenager, a football standout at Azusa High School, died of his injuries at Huntington Memorial Hospital. No gun or stolen laptop was found.

Of course, this isn't a "war on blacks." This is just a terrible tragedy that comes in the wake of the Trayvon Martin protests. But, somehow, I doubt this case will garner the notoriety or outrage that very questionable case has.

Update: The Pasadena Star-News adds this:

[Police Chief Phillip] Sanchez said a videotape shot near the taco truck shows the 17-year-old reaching into Carrillo's car and allegedly grabbing both a backpack and a laptop computer. Sanchez said McDade acted as a "lookout" during the alleged burglary.

So, it appears the police officers had legitimate concerns. Police should always assume suspects are armed until they can establish otherwise. But in this case, the victim claimed they had a weapon. The question is whether the 911 caller deliberately lied about the suspects being armed or if the robbers gave him reason to believe they were.

Norway: Mullah Krekar Will Take Witness Stand in Breivik Trial

Image from Breivik's "manifesto"

And no, "Breivik is not crazy", his lawyer plans to prove

OSLO — Geir Lippestad will definitely cause some controversy with the approach he plans to take in the upcoming trial of Anders Breivik, Norway's infamous extreme-right terrorist. For starters, Lippestad, Breivik's defense attorney, intends to place Mullah Krekar — an Islamist extremist from Kurdish Iraq who has been living in Norway since 1991— on the witness stand.

In an interview with Le Monde, Lippestad outlined his strategy for this exceptional trial, which is scheduled to begin April 16, less than eight months after the double attack on July 22, 2011, in which 77 people died. The majority of the victims were attending a summer camp hosted by the youth wing of the governing Social Democratic party.[...]

A controversial star witness

By summoning Mullah Krekar to testify — potentially alongside other Islamists— Lippestad wants to show that "Islamists also believe that Europe is the setting for a war of religion and that it is not just a delusion that Breivik has imagined."

Krekar, real name Faraj Ahmad Najmuddin and often called the "most controversial refugee in Norway," used to be the leader of Ansar Al-Islam, a small Islamist group from Iraqi Kurdistan that carried out several attacks there. In a book published in Norway in 2004, Krekar admitted to having met Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan in about 1990 in the hope of receiving some financial help for his guerrilla group. He left the meeting empty handed.[continue reading]

I guess Krekar will enjoy taking a break from his prison cell or something.

PARIS - Algerian authorities have refused to allow the body of an al-Qaida-inspired gunman who killed seven people in France this month to be sent there for burial as his father had asked, an official at a top French mosque said on Thursday.

Mohamed Merah, a Frenchman of Algerian origin who was shot dead by a police sniper last week following a more than 30-hour siege at his home in the southern city of Toulouse, will instead be buried in Toulouse, Abdallah Zekri told Reuters.

Bilal Khar Doesn't Want to Be Embarrassed by What He Did to His Ex Wife

Yeah this guy...

A Pakistani former dancing girl left fighting for life by a 'horrific' acid attack has committed suicide a decade after being heavily facially disfigured.

Bilal_Khar_Pussy.jpg

Fakhra Younus, 33, leapt to her death from a sixth floor building in Rome 12 years after the acid attack which she said left her looking 'not human'.

At the time of her attack in May 2000, her ex-husband Bilal Khar was the man accused of entering her mother's house and pouring acid over Younus's face as she slept.

What's worse is after he got off, he showed no remorse.
Think Progress:
“The saddest part is that she realized that the system in Pakistan was never going to provide her with relief or remedy,” Nayyar Shabana Kiyani, an activist at The Aurat Foundation, told the AP. “She was totally disappointed that there was no justice available to her.”

In an interview after Younus’s death, Khar again denied that he was responsible for the acid attack, saying that a man with the same name committed the crime. And he criticized the media for bringing up the matter. “You people should be a little considerate,” said Khar. “I have three daughters and when they go to school people tease them.”

Tranny Cowboy Defends Trayvon Martin for Some Reason

I was watching TV this morning when I saw this tranny cowboy talking about about the Trayvon Martin case for some reason. And I told myself, "It's good to see that The Village People are making a comeback. I always wondered what they'd look like in their golden years. And also in drag."

frederica_wilson_drag_tranny-cowboy.jpg

But seriously, WTF? This person is really in Congress? You're not putting me on??? You're sure she's not some character from a movie where Tyler Perry plays all the parts????

I haven't really commented on this case because, to be honest, I'm not convinced Martin's supporters don't kind of have a point here.

But when you get people like Rep. Frederica Jackson -- wearing some kind of weird pink cowboy outfit -- sitting next to Rep. Corrinne Brown's gigantic wig, and you're most articulate spokesperson is Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee ...... um, you might want to reevaluate your PR strategy.

People like me would be a lot more sympathetic if the self appointed spokespeople for this cause weren't these clowns. Or at least, it would be easier for us to show our sympathy if we weren't so distracted by their idiotic outfits ... which are only half as idiotic as some of their statements.

Awesome: Pakistan to Charge bin Laden Family Members

Simply awesome:

A Pakistani court is set to charge five members of Osamabin Laden’s family with illegally entering and living in the country, their defense lawyer said Monday....

A Pakistani court will charge three of bin Laden’s widows and two of his daughters on April 2 when the hearing against them resumes, said their lawyer, Mohammad Amir. The court gave the five women copies of the case and evidence against them on Monday, he said.

You'd think knowing where the greatest mass murderer of the 21st Century was hiding would be the the real offense, but no: they're being charged with ... illegal immigration undocumented migrant status?

Somewhere some La Raza lawyer's heart beats a little faster thinking of the chance to protect the poor bin Laden family from this obvious violation of their human rights by the evil Pakistani government.

Woman Cries Foul After Giving Away Winning Lottery Ticket

From FNC:

A California woman’s generosity may have cost her $260,000, without her knowing it.

Emily Leach, a nurse at a veterans affairs hospital in Palo Alto who is still celebrating a $1 million Lotto win earlier this year, says she inadvertently handed a stranger her second winning Lotto ticket, The Mercury News reported.

She says last Friday she handed $100 bill to a man standing behind her on line at Liquor & Tobacco, a convenience store in Mountain View, Calif., the paper reported. But she told the paper that she accidentally mixed up a winning $260,000 lottery ticket with the money that she handed a man who appeared to be struggling financially.

Fox News Channel on television actually ran the surveillance video. The woman quite deliberately gave away the two tickets. It doesn't appear to me to be an accident, but more of a case of regret.

I'll post video as soon as I can find it. I checked Youtube and Fox but didn't see it up yet.

Expect This Care Under Obamacare

A woman called emergency services claiming she couldn't breath. The call was transferred to a nurse who, based only on the telephone exchange, determined that since the woman could speak, she could breath and, therefore, did not require an ambulance.

Jill Soderberg, 22, died in her home in the town of Timra, 241 miles (389km) north of Stockholm, on January 20, 2011, shortly after she had placed her third and last call to SOS Alarm emergency services requesting an ambulance, news website The Local reported Tuesday.

However, every time she rang, as per procedure, operators connected her to Vasternorrland County nurses who deemed that she was not sufficiently ill for an ambulance because she could still speak.

"I can't breathe," Soderberg, who was suffering chest pains, told operators, according to transcripts of the calls. "I want you to come and help me."

"The operator considered her to still be communicating verbally and decided that she didn't need an ambulance," Jill Soderberg's mother, Annika Soderberg, said.

The woman died from breathing problems caused by medications.

'White Slime' Sold to Americans as 'Food'

Concocted from rotting animal secretions that have been deliberately laced with bacteria, "White Slime" products are foisted upon unsuspecting Americans under a variety of trade names.

"White Slime" is also combined with otherwise wholesome fruits in the form of a binding matrix, holding the healthful food suspended in a thick, slippery solution that many believe gives off a noxious, sour odor.

In an apparent attempt to disguise the origins of this substance and market it, "White Slime" has been given the innocuous sounding sobriquet, "yogurt."

Democratic Congresswoman Wants To Arrest George Zimmerman "For His Own Safety"

Never mind it would be un-Constitutional to imprison a person without due process and that Zimmerman is innocent until proven guilty. Never mind that arresting a person "for their own safety" is a human rights violation more often associated with tyrannical governments seeking to oppose political dissent. And never mind that those who are threatening Zimmerman's safety will walk free without consequences for their behavior.

From Breitbart:

At a Congressional forum on the Hill yesterday at which killed Florida teenager Trayvon Martin’s parents were asked to testify, Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) took center stage. She claimed first that Martin had been victimized by racial profiling and a “botched police investigation.” But she went even further: George Zimmerman, the shooter in the case, she said, should be arrested “immediately for his own safety.”

The facts in the Trayvon Martin case have yet to be revealed. What little is out suggests that, while Zimmerman made some very poor choices in confronting Martin, it was Martin who escalated the encounter to a physical attack.

Florida law does not justify a physical response to a verbal attack. So, no matter what Zimmerman said to Martin, however wrong, Martin had no right to then violently attack Zimmerman.

Florida law does justify a physical response - including deadly force, if necessary - to a physical attack. You can say, perhaps correctly, Zimmerman provoked Martin by confronting him. But that provocation did not give Martin the right to strike Zimmerman, and then pummel him once he fell.

If you want to argue that Martin was in fear of his life, fine. But let's have some evidence. As it stands, all evidence supports the account given by Zimmerman and witnesses.

Briton Clive Dennis Arrested in Somalia

on suspicion of trying to join the African Taliban [aka al-Shabaab].

A BRITISH man was last night being quizzed in Somalia on suspicion of flying there to join a terror group linked to al-Qaeda.

Clive Dennis, 45, was arrested by immigration officers at Mogadishu’s Aden Adde International Airport.

A Somali news website claimed Jamican-born Dennis, who arrived from London via Nairobi, was carrying drugs and knives and had admitted he had travelled to the country “to help Islam”.

Spike Lee, et al. Endanger Innocent Elderly Couple; Retweet Their Address As George Zimmerman's (Updated & Bumped)

This is what comes from vigilante justice. Innocent people wrongly accused and attacked.

Spike Lee and thousands of his followers re-tweeted George Zimmerman's address just hours after the New Black Panthers posted a $10,000 bounty for the "capture" of Zimmerman. Many of the re-tweets included threats and incitement to violence.

Spike-Lee-twitter2.jpg
(Address obscured to protect the innocent)

The only problem is, it wasn't the correct address. That address belongs to an elderly couple who had nothing to do with the Trayvon Martin situation. Now they are living in fear that someone might try to collect on that bounty.

Nice going, Spike.

(Hat Tip: Gateway Pundit)

Update: The elderly couple has been forced to leave their home.

The couple has a son named William George Zimmerman, no relation to the George Zimmerman involved in the shooting of Trayvon Martin. William traced the tweets back to the original poster:

Zimmerman has implored the man to stop and said he received this response, "Black power all day. No justice, no peace" and an obscenity.

No justice, no peace. These instigators are perfectly happy terrorizing innocent people in order to blackmail authorities into arresting, convicting and punishing the shooter despite the evidence and rule of law.

Update by SH: The Smocking Gun interviewed the couple yesterday.

When told that Twitter posts containing her address continued to pour in this evening, an exasperated Elaine McClain remarked, “Maybe we should get a lawyer and send a cease and desist letter to Spike Lee.” (6 pages)
Yes, lawyer up and sue the p*ss out of him as well as @maccapone [aka Marcus D. Higgins] who originally started this mess.
The original tweet was sent to Lee (and numerous other celebrities like Will Smith, 50 Cent, and LeBron James) last Friday afternoon by Marcus Davonne Higgins, a 33-year-old Los Angeles man who uses the online handle “maccapone.” Higgins included the direction, “EVERYBODY REPOST THIS.”

Higgins, pictured at right, first began disseminating the Sanford address to his Twitter followers last Wednesday, including the claim that Zimmerman “Like the fat punk he is, he still lives at home with mommie & daddy.” In a simultaneous post to his Facebook wall, Higgins told his 4000 friends, “FEEL FREE TO REACH OUT & TOUCH HIM.” He also claimed in another post that, “REAL TALK MY PEOPLE OUT THERE IN FLORIDA JUST TOLD ME GEORGE ZIMMERMAN IS NOT AT HIS HOUSE THEY OUT THERE RIGHT NOW.”

Higgins’s dissemination of Zimmerman’s purported Edgewater Circle address was not, however, limited to cyberspace. At a protest rally last Thursday in an L.A. park near his Crenshaw home, Higgins held a sign containing Zimmerman’s name, address, and phone number.

Except, of course, none were accurate

Toulouse Terrorist's Father Threatens To Sue France For Killing His Son

The nerve of this jackass. He obviously failed as a father to instill any sense of decency and morality in his son, now he wants to sue the government for failing to arrest his son:

The father of Toulouse gunman Mohamed Merah on Tuesday said he planned to take the French state to court – for killing his son and failing to take him alive.

Benanel Merah told FRANCE 24 that police besieging his son’s Toulouse flat “could have used sleep-inducing gas and taken him like a baby.”

“Why were they so hasty?” he asked. “Why did they kill him? He could have been sentenced to many years in prison or even a life sentence. There is no death penalty in France.”

Hopefully, the families of Merah's victims will sue the father, not only for raising such a beast but also for failing to notify the authorities about his son's extremist views.

#Occupy Protester Suspected In Fatal Subway Fight

Police have identified an #Occupy protester as the man who pushed another off a subway platform on to the tracks.

Breitbart reports:

Police have identified a suspect in the fatal L train fight in Brooklyn as 33-year-old Ryan Beauchamp and have released surveillance video. A verbal and physical altercation on a subway platform lead to Joshua Basin, a college student from Queens being hit by an oncoming train over the weekend . Ryan Beauchamp, 33, is being sought by police in the altercation that caused 20-year-old Basin's death. Police identified Beauchamp, who is homeless, as a suspect through a previous arrest in connection with an Occupy Wall Street protest on Oct. 8, 2011,

Mullah Krekar Gets Prison

Mullah Krekar.jpg(Oslo, Norway) Islamist founder of Ansar al-Islam, Mullah Krekar, has been sentenced to five years in prison in Norway for issuing death threats. Good.

An Oslo district court found the 55-year-old guilty on Monday of threatening the life of Erna Solberg, a former government minister who signed an order expelling Krekar in 2003 because he was considered a threat to national security, the Agence France Presse reported.

Krekar, who came to Norway as a refugee from Iraq with his family in 1991, and whose real name is Najmeddine Faraj Ahmad, was also found guilty of threatening three other Kurds living in Norway who had burned pages of the Qu’ran or insulted it in other ways.

An appeal is being prepared.

Evidence: Merah Had Accomplice

If Mohammad Merah didn't send the snuff video showing him murdering his victims, then it certainly implies that he was not alone. So, his rantings to the media and the police about what "we" wanted, may not have been all bluster. Remember, he had gone to Pakistan and Afghanistan and trained with al Qaeda or one of its affiliates.

The evidence suggests the "lone wolf" narrative being foisted on us by the media may be way, way off:

A French official close to the investigation said it was not sent by Mohamed Merah, a 23-year-old Frenchman who was killed in a shootout Thursday after a 32-hour standoff with police at his apartment building in Toulouse.

Another official said the envelope sent to Al-Jazeera contained a Wednesday postmark from a large postal processing center for the area around Toulouse, meaning it was unclear exactly where it was mailed from. He could not say anything about who may have sent the video.

The first official said a technical analysis had concluded that it was not sent by Merah but did not indicate whether that analysis included fingerprints, DNA, surveillance or other data.

The Wednesday date would also seems to preclude Merah's brother from sending the video since he was arrested Wednesday morning. So, unless big bro dopped it in a mailbox the night before, then we have an accomplice still on the loose.

Al Qaeda Member Arrested in Spain for Internet Propaganda
UPDATE: Big Fish Online

It looks like we're finally getting things right:

The [Spanish] interior ministry said the man, who was identified only as M.H.A., was detained on suspicion of distributing videos which encouraged people to commit terrorist acts over the internet.

"His Internet activity revealed his membership of the terrorist organization and the dissemination of audiovisual products to induce, provoke and encourage terrorist acts," a statement said.

Hey Censored31 ... you're next.

UPDATE: Via Internet Haganah, Fox News has more details:

The suspect arrested in the eastern city of Valencia "administered one of the world's most important jihadist forums", dedicated to recruiting and indoctrinating Islamic terrorists, Interior Minister Jorge Fernandez Diaz said....

"He was known within the organization as Al Qaeda's librarian," Fernandez Diaz said, without specifying what that term meant in this case.

Apparently, jihadist propaganda was his full time job as he worked at it "8 - 15 hours a day". I'm guessing as the details emerge that we'll find out that he wasn't actually on al Qaeda's payroll but was on welfare.

Which means that Spain was paying him to recruit for al Qaeda. Thank you European socialism!

SF Anti-Obama Protest Draws More Than Any #Occupy Event This Year; Media Ignores

SF_protest_cath.jpg

From PJ Tatler via IHateTheMedia:

There was a large political protest in San Francisco a couple days ago. In fact, it was one of the largest ones this year and far out-drew any OccupySF protests since the earliest days of that movement.

And yet, the protest was almost completely ignored by the mainstream media.

Why?

Because it was organized by Catholic groups strongly opposing President Obama and his contraception mandate for religious organizations. Any event that opposes Obama is deemed by the media to be irrelevant and trivial, and can safely be swept under the rug.

Hmm... How Did They Know?

A commenter over at Gateway Pundit wonders how the family of Shaima Alawadi knew some very specific details about the crime. It was reported that the victim's cousin, speaking to al Arabiyah, said:

...the murderer snuck into the house on Wednesday morning from the back garden.

“The garden has no fence so he was able to break the glass of the kitchen window right away and apparently he did so without making a noise.”

Hussein added that the attacker then reached for the window handle, opened it, and got inside.

“He did so after watching Shaima’s husband drive away with four of the children he was taking to school. Only Shaima and her eldest daughter Fatima stayed in the house. Fatima was asleep.”

The murderer, Hussein recounted, saw Shaima in the dinning room and attacked her with an iron rod or a spanner.

“He first hit her on her forehead then on her right ear. The third strike was on the back of her head. This was followed by five fast and consecutive strikes on her head and shoulders.”

How did he know those specific details? The police have not released any information on possible suspects, if any. To me, it sounds more like a pre-conceived scenario being related as fact.

I have another question - why did the attacker leave a note? He just beat the victim unconscious, maybe even thinking she was dead. Why leave a note telling her to leave the country?

It all reminds me of a scene from The Sopranos. Paulie confronts some low-level drug dealers encroaching on Soprano turf. He sticks a gun in one punk's mouth:

Paulie: This is all a message to your friends. Stay away from port Newark. Don't even drive out to Jersey. Not even on Sundays.

Valdez: I'll tell them.

Paulie: They've been told. Twice. Now I'll tell 'em.

(Blows Valdez's head off)

See? No note necessary. Unless it's to throw investigators off...

CAIR Entering Trayvon Martin Case

It appears George Zimmerman's rampage against hoodies hasn't ended. He is now targeting hijabs.

IOL News via Gateway Pundit:

Dawud Walid, executive director of CAIR’s Michigan chapter, said Alawadi’s death was a primary topic of conversation among speakers and attendees on Sunday evening at the organisation’s annual banquet in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn.

He and others compared her slaying to that of Trayvon Martin, the unarmed Florida teen shot by a neighbourhood watch volunteer and whose case has ignited racial tensions.

“Treyvon was black wearing a hoodie. Shaima was wearing a hijab,” Walid said. “It’s the same racist principle at play that killed both of these individuals.”

Wait... it's about head wear? I thought it was all about racism and blacks being under attack! (I still can't figure out how a black man was elected President in such a racist country....)

Reports coming out reveal Trayvon may have initiated the first physical contact in the Florida case. In Florida, verbal assaults or threats do not justify using a weapon (including fists). However, defending against a physical threat does.

I only hope Shaima got in a few good licks on her killer before he overwhelmed her.

Obama Seeks Advice About Raising Daughters From Islamist

President Barack "My Christian Faith" Obama sought advice from Turkey's Recep Tayyip Erdogen on how to raise daughters:

President Barack Obama and Turkey’s controversial Islamist prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan have become such bosom buddies that Erdogan is giving Obama advice on raising his American daughters.

[...]

The two met in South Korea on Sunday, Eastern Time, to discuss Syria’s civil war and Iran’s nuclear weapons program, but they also talked about the president’s two daughters, Malia and Sasha, Obama said during a press conference, according to a White House statement.

Fortunately, the discussion never got a far as how to prevent girls from escaping stoning pits. I hear Obama is also seeking a good marital guide to keep his marriage strong and healthy.

Let's just hope he is elected out of office before he seeks advice on dealing with the kufr.

Mohammad Merah Sent Snuff Films of Toulouse Murders to al-Jazeera

CNN:

Al Jazeera's Paris bureau received video of the shootings in southwest France blamed on Mohammed Merah, and gave the material to the police, bureau chief Zied Tarrouche said Tuesday.

The edited footage contains images of the killings of seven people, along with music, religious singing and readings from the Quran, he said.

"You can hear the gunshots at the time of the killings. ... You can hear the cries of the victims," he said on CNN affiliate BFM-TV.

Merah, 23, was killed Thursday at the end of a 32-hour siege at the apartment in the city of Toulouse where he was holed up.

He was wanted in the killings of three French paratroopers, a rabbi and three children ages 4, 5, and 7. Two other people were seriously wounded in shootings blamed on him.

The video arrived by mail on Monday on a USB stick along with an unsigned letter crediting al Qaeda with the attacks, Tarrouche told CNN.

This is a common form of propaganda with al-Qaeda, the Taliban and other linked groups. Where a person or persons are murdered by terrorists on video. Usually they should Allahu Ackbar! and provide their Islamic interpretation of why this butchery is justified.

It's sick sick sick, and designed to create more murderers like Mohammad Merah for al-Qaeda.

But going after al-Qaeda and their supporters' speech makes you a bigot and an Islamophobe. Not going after it makes more dead people.

Hello ObamaCare Goodbye Tax Refund

Just listening to NPR this morning I'm struck by what is missing from all the, "ObamaCare's penalties are toothless.", chit chat.

One point made was, "You can't get blood from a turnip"., "You can't go to jail." and "No one can repo your car or anything like that." In other words they can't make you pay.

What they are trying to distract from is the fact that the program is administered by the IRS. So its pretty easy to see how the fines, and yes its a fine in my book, will be collected. They will simply deduct the fine from any tax return.

So this will affect millions of low income wage earners taking standard deductions. Those returns average around a thousand or two. Possibly a bit more with an earned income credit.

Those are the voters Obama claims to want to help. I doubt very much that taking the one check per year that they very much depend on will go over very well. And so do they, that's why they never mention that shrunken tax check part.

Former NAACP Leader Accuses Sharpton & Jackson Of Exploiting Treyvon Martin

Indeed they are

Heh, it's a nice distraction for Obama's failed policies, is it not? Our national debt is skyrocketing but all eyes are on this incident

Former NAACP leader C.L. Bryant is accusing Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton of “exploiting” the Trayvon Martin tragedy to “racially divide this country.”

“His family should be outraged at the fact that they’re using this child as the bait to inflame racial passions,” Rev. C.L. Bryant said in a Monday interview with The Daily Caller.

The conservative black pastor who was once the chapter president of the Garland, Texas NAACP called Jackson and Sharpton “race hustlers” and said they are “acting as though they are buzzards circling the carcass of this young boy.”[...]

“The epidemic is truly black on black crime,” Bryant said. “The greatest danger to the lives of young black men are young black men.”

“Why not be angry about the wholesale murder that goes on in the streets of Newark and Chicago?” he asked. “Why isn’t somebody angry about that six-year-old girl who was killed on her steps last weekend in a cross fire when two gang members in Chicago start shooting at each other? Why is there no outrage about that?”

Because that doesn't fit the Obama narrative, the more people not paying attention to Obama's failed policies the better to elect him with...no?

Hey, Obama even said "if I had a son he would look like Trayvon". Yeah, the Obama team is riding high on supposed white on black murder. Black on black murder, even if it involves a 6yr old child, doesn't fit the Obama narrative. Can't scream racism.

That is a sad, sadistic, cruel, etc. narrative that our prez appears to be following.

al-Qaeda's Presence in the New Libya

Combating Terrorism Center at West Point:

Since the uprising against Qadhafi began in February 2011, Libya has become a source of attention for jihadists and grave concern among regional and Western leaders. There are clear signs of jihadist efforts to infiltrate Libya, and even signs of some possible success for al-Qa`ida in establishing a limited presence in Libya. Security officials must be vigilant for signs of support for al-Qa`ida among Libyan militias and further expansion of the group’s reach, especially evidence of training and indoctrination of Libyans by al-Qa`ida-linked figures.

It appears that AQIM in particular has chosen to profit from the Libyan unrest by seizing weapons, but have remained ensconced in safe havens in northern Mali and Algeria. The same cannot be definitively said for other al-Qa`ida-linked figures, who are accustomed to operating clandestinely when setting up funding and operational networks and may be doing the same in Libya. Given al-Qa`ida’s expressed interest in the country and the key role Libyan militants have historically played in the organization, this concern cannot be easily dismissed.

Two UK Servicemen Killed by Afghan Soldier

Again why do we train people on how to kill us?

KABUL (Reuters) - An Afghan army soldier killed two NATO troops in southern Afghanistan on Monday, NATO forces and a provincial official said, in the latest attack by rogue Afghan security personnel on Western troops.

So-called insider attacks have mounted recently as tension between Afghanistan and its foreign backers rises over a series of incidents, including the burning of Korans at a NATO base and a massacre of 17 villagers for which a U.S. soldier was charged.

The latest incident took place at about 11 a.m. in Lashkar Gah in southern Helmand province at the main entrance to a base housing military and civilian reconstruction teams, the provincial governor's office said in a statement.

The attacker was shot dead by NATO soldiers, the alliance and the governor's office said. NATO did not identify the soldiers or give their nationality, although Helmand is the main area of operations for British forces in Afghanistan.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

"A joint Afghan and ISAF team is investigating the incident," said Captain Justin M. Brockhoff, a spokesman for the NATO-led International Security Assistant Force.

At this point, given what the future appears to be, it would be in our interest to teach our future opponents as little as possible.

Norwegian Home Town Love

(Trondheim, Norway) Energetic naked men have been demonstrating their affection for home town landmarks.

In a series of YouTube videos, the hormonal humpers take on Trondheim with such a vibrant display of orgiastic love-making that no viewer can be left unmoved.

But not everybody in the stunning old city appreciates the three videos that have so far emerged from the anonymous bonkers.

The city’s foremost educational institute, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), took exception to the fact that the filmmakers included its logo and slogan in a video of muscular young men simulating sex on the snowy steps of the university’s main building.

Reportedly, NTNU students are believed to have performed in the videos which were posted anonymously.

In any event, I suggest diminished sunlight or something makes Norwegians a bit loopy.

White House Clarifies Obama's Comments On Trayvon Martin

A top Obama adviser says the President's comments came from his parental instinct and had nothing to do with race:

A top presidential adviser said President Obama's decision to comment on the shooting death of an African-American teenager in Florida was motivated by parental instinct more than the incident's emergence as a racial issue.

Senior White House adviser David Plouffe said Obama reacted instinctively as a parent last week in saying that Americans needed "some soul searching" in the wake of the slaying of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin by a neighborhood watch volunteer. The gunman was not charged, prompting probes by the Justice Department and local authorities.

Obama said he supported the investigations, noting: "If I had son, he'd look like Trayvon."

Speaking on "Fox News Sunday," Plouffe said Obama "was speaking powerfully about this as a parent." Plouffe added that "no matter gender or race, this is a tragedy."

That does make sense. It was very similar to comments President Obama made about Allen Coon, the white 13-year-old who was set on fire by two black classmates. Obama said then, "If I had a son, he'd look like Allen."

Oh wait, Obama didn't say anything about Allen. My bad. I guess that 'parental instinct' didn't kick in then. I can't imagine why not.

Canadian Book Store Sells Guide To Properly Beat Your Wife

gift_muslim_couple_big.jpg

Did I mention it was a book for married Muslim couples?

In the book’s opening pages, it is written that “it might be necessary to restrain her with strength or even to threaten her.”

Later, its author advises that “the husband should treat the wife with kindness and love, even if she tends to be stupid and slow sometimes.”

Page 45 contains the rights of the husband, which include his wife’s inability to leave “his house without his permission,” and that his wife must “fulfil his desires” and “not allow herself to be untidy ... but should beautify herself for him ... ”

In terms of physical punishment, the book advises that a husband may scold her, “beat by hand or stick,” withhold money from her or “pull (her) by the ears,” but should “refrain from beating her excessively.”

Nothing says "I love you" like a good beating, but excessive beatings tend to ruin the mood.

Chuck Johnson Discovers Motive Behind Iraqi Muslimah's Murder

An update to this story.

Even though no suspects have been named, even though investigators are still searching for clues, even though motive has yet to be established, Charles Johnson over at Little green Footballs is certain he knows who is responsible for the beating death of an Iraqi immigrant:

I’m sure some will disagree with me, but I have no doubt that the climate of deranged xenophobia and anti-Muslim hatred built and fed by people like Newt Gingrich, Pamela Geller, and Robert Spencer played a large part in this brutal crime.

Damn, if only real detectives and police were that smart. It's so obvious it was an anti-Muslim hate crime 'cause there was a note that said so. And we all know hate crimes can't be faked.

I would drop a comment commending Chuckie on his detective work, but, unfortunately, I've been chucked a johnson.

Ironic Statement Of The Day

And a nice illustration of liberal hypocrisy:

Sen. Chuck Schumer is calling on the Justice Department to investigate so-called "Stand Your Ground" laws following the fatal shooting of an unarmed Florida teen. [...]

"These laws seem to be encouraging vigilantism by allowing individuals to use deadly force as a first resort," Schumer, D-N.Y., said in a statement.

Schumer asked Holder's department to probe whether the laws "are creating more violence than they are preventing," and whether potential murders are "going unprosecuted" because of them.

Senator Schumer had no comments about the $10,000 bounty the New Black Panthers have put on the head of George Zimmerman. The racist group hopes to increase the bounty to $1,000,000 through donations, mostly from black entertainers who support the call for vigilante justice.

Something Is Rotten In The State Of California...

A murder of an Iraqi immigrant + CAIR + a convenient note = recipe for propaganda

From FNC:

A 32-year-old woman from Iraq who was found severely beaten next to a threatening note saying "go back to your country" died on Saturday.

Hanif Mohebi, the director of the San Diego chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said he met with Shaima Alawadi's family members in the morning and was told that she was taken off life support around 3 p.m. [...]

A family friend, Sura Alzaidy, told UT San Diego that the attack apparently occurred after the father took the younger children to school. Alzaidy told the newspaper the family is from Iraq, and that Alawadi is a "respectful modest muhajiba," meaning she wears the traditional hijab, a head scarf.

How convenient CAIR happened to be there. My gut instinct is telling me this was an 'honor killing' made to look like a hate crime. Even if proven so, don't expect CAIR to admit otherwise.

And, whether it is a hate crime or an honor killing, I hope the person that did it rots in prison.

Female Sperm Hunters Attack - Travel Advisory

(Harare, Zimbabwe) Male hitchhikers in Zimbabwe, don't travel alone. Beware of attacks by female sperm harvesters.

According to the report, naïve travelers are picked up by "gangs of beautiful women" and are drugged and forced to have sex and later dumped on the freeways.

Some of the attackers are armed, using guns, knives and, in one instance, a live snake was used to overpower victims, before collecting their semen in condoms.

Reportedly, harvesters get hundreds of dollars for a sperm-filled condom which is used in witchcraft.

Worst President Ever Number of the Weekend: 3 Days, $1,522,047,977.90 More in Debt


Try not to fix the deficit. That would be impossible. Instead, only try to realize the truthiness: there is no deficit.

Between Tuesday March 20th and Friday March 22nd, 2012 (the last business day) $1,522,047,977.90 is the amount to the penny added by the Obama administration to the national debt.

That's three days of a failed Presidency and $1.5 BILLION more of your children's labor being sold to the Chinese.

UPDATE: I'm in a very Steyn mood today:

was in Australia earlier this month and there, as elsewhere on my recent travels, the consensus among the politicians I met (at least in private) was that Washington lacked the will for meaningful course correction, and that, therefore, the trick was to ensure that, when the behemoth goes over the cliff, you’re not dragged down with it. It is faintly surreal to be sitting in paneled offices lined by formal portraits listening to eminent persons who assume the collapse of the dominant global power is a fait accompli. “I don’t feel America is quite a First World country anymore,” a robustly pro-American Aussie told me, with a sigh of regret.

Brother of French Terrorist "Proud" He Killed

Mohamed Merah's brother, Abdelkader, described as an Islamic fundamentalist says he's proud that little bro killed a few apostates and Jews:

Le Point news weekly and other French media reported him as telling investigators he had no knowledge of his brother's acts, but that he was "proud" of them.
But don't worry, religion had absolutely nothing to do with it. Merah's uncle tells us this, so it must be true:
"Religion has nothing to do with this. He got worked up all by himself," the brother of Merah's mother, whose identity was withheld, said.
I don't blame all of Islam. But you'd have to be pretty stupid to believe that Merah's particular brand of the religion of peace was the prime motivator here. To deny that would be to deny reality.

Black Panthers Call For Lynching Of George Zimmerman

[Edit: A commenter alerted me that the image I had included may not have been Trayvon Martin. I acquired it from another blog, and it appears they have since removed the picture as well. I could not confirm the image from another source, so I opted to remove it. My sincere apologies if this caused any confusion. To replace the image, I am embedding a news report about a witness to the confrontation.]

The Black Panthers have issued "Wanted: Dead or Alive" posters for George Zimmerman, the shooter at the center of the controversial Florida neighborhood watch case.

Zimmerman claimed the shooting was in self-defense. Local investigators found no evidence to prove otherwise and, based on those findings, prosecutors declined to press charges.

The Family of the victim, understandably, is outraged. They received an outpouring of support from the community. But what's most disturbing is, in that support, there have been calls to execute the accused killer. No trial, no jury. Guilty without representation.

And the Obama Administration is silent. Well, not completely silent. President Obama took a moment to further incite emotions in this case by declaring the victim, Trayvon Martin, looked just like his own son would look if he had one.

Did you mean black, Mr. President Barrack "The Uniter" Obama? Instead of representing Americans as a whole, instead of defending the Constitution, instead of ensuring Zimmerman's rights are protected, the President of the United States has taken sides, based only on skin color.

For the record, I think the case needs to be further investigated. As a victim of a horrible circumstance, Martin deserves that much. But I also think Zimmerman, as a citizen of the United States, deserves a fair, impartial hearing. If evidence warrants, he should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. But lacking the evidence, Zimmerman should be considered innocent until proven otherwise.

It is frightening that, in America and in this day, some groups can so publicly call for the lynching of a citizen who has not been afforded his Constitutional rights, and the President does nothing.

If any harm comes to Zimmerman, especially before he receives a fair trial, his blood is on your hands, Obama. Of course, I doubt you'd care much.

Top Saudi Cleric Sheik Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah Wipe Out all Churches in the Arabian Peninsula

If they are not all destroyed it will be civil war without end.

Real Clear Politics:

Did you read about Sheik Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah, the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia, and his call this month to "destroy all the churches of the region?"

You might think that’s big news – big enough to garner some attention from America’s leading media – especially because the Grand Mufti is among the Muslim world’s leading authorities. He is President of the Supreme Council of Ulema [Islamic scholars] and Chairman of the Standing Committee for Scientific Research and Issuing of Fatwas, according to the Middle East Forum’s Raymond Ibrahim.

A Kuwaiti delegation had asked the Grand Mufti about a Kuwaiti parliament member’s call for the "removal" of churches in his country, later clarified to a ban on new ones. In response, the Grand Mufti called it "necessary to destroy all the churches of the region." He reportedly relied on the famous tradition, or "hadith," that the Prophet Mohammed ruled on his deathbed, "There are not to be two religions in the [Arabian] Peninsula."

California Spanish Teacher and Two Boys

(Montebello, California) This week, 42-year-old Spanish teacher at Roosevelt High School, Gabriela Cortez, pleaded not guilty at her arraignment on six felony counts of unlawful sexual intercourse with two male students.

Roosevelt High School is the flagship of Partnership for L.A. Schools, the pet project of Mayor Anthony Villaraigosa.

The Partnership focuses on turning around the lowest-performing schools in LAUSD.

We'd like to take this opportunity to point out this incident only offers proof that the organization mission--to create schools where "students experience more personalized attention from teachers"--is being carried out dutifully.

Prosecutors say that between January 2009 and November 2010 Cortez had sex with two male students, ages 16 and 17 at the time, at her home in Montebello.

Cortez remains free on bail. (More....)

Reworked version of Stuxnet relative Duqu worm found in Iran

Stuxnet Lives!

A new variant of the mysterious Duqu worm has been spotted in Iran by researchers from the security firm Symantec, marking the re-emergence of the close cousin of the Stuxnet cyberweapon after five months of dormancy.

The finding indicates that the unknown creators of Stuxnet — suspected by many to be the intelligence services of the U.S., of Israel or of both — are still at work.

In a Symantec blog posting Tuesday, the company identified a new component of the malware, a driver used to load Duqu onto computers when they restart. Analyzing the driver's code —"only one small part of the overall attack code" — Symantec's researchers found that the malware authors had reworked it to better evade detection by security products.

Duqu's builders also changed its encryption algorithm and rigged the malware loader to pose as a Microsoft driver. (The old driver was signed with a stolen Microsoft certificate.)

"Although we do not have all of the information regarding this infection, the emergence of this new file does show that the attackers are still active," Symantec wrote.

GIMF Loser Gets Five Years

One of he members of the group known as the Global Islamic Media Front was sentenced today to five years in German prison. Global Islamic Media Front is a group dedicated to translating and distributing al-Qaeda propaganda into many languages. The German branch was especially active.

Spiegel:

A German court on Thursday convicted a suspected al-Qaida supporter to five years in prison for promoting the international terrorist organization over the Internet. The higher regional court in Koblenz found Hussam S. guilty on 44 counts of publishing online propaganda for foreign terrorist groups like al-Qaida.

The man, born in Syria, had lived in Germany since 1990. Most recently, he was registered as a university student, but he has been in police custody since July 2010. Germany's Federal Prosecutor had called for a sentence of five and a half years.

According to the charges against Hussam S., he was one of the main people responsible for "jihadist propaganda on the Internet in the German language." Prosecutors noted, in particular, that he is believed to have posted video of an American being decapitated by al-Qaida on the web.

Lump of Gruel Killed Whitney Houston

No I'm not kidding really.

Whitney Houston died from an accidental drowning in a hotel bathtub, but the "effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use" were contributing factors in her death, the Los Angeles County Coroner said in an initial autopsy report released Thursday.
Looking up, atherosclerotic heart disease its not nearly exciting as the walking pharmacy part.
Atherosclerosis (also known as arteriosclerotic vascular disease or ASVD) is a condition in which an artery wall thickens as a result of the accumulation of fatty materials such as cholesterol. It is a syndrome affecting arterial blood vessels, a chronic inflammatory response in the walls of arteries...

The atheromatous plaque is divided into three distinct components:

The atheroma ("lump of gruel," from ἀθήρα, athera, gruel in Greek), which is the nodular accumulation of a soft, flaky, yellowish material at the center of large plaques, composed of macrophages nearest the lumen of the artery.

Underlying areas of cholesterol crystals.

Calcification at the outer base of older/more advanced lesions.

What happens is one of these lumps of gruel breaks off nad causes heart attack or stroke. The blockage can also occur on other areas of the body where there are large arteries.That's the speculated "event" that occurred before she went under water. They reported more water in her lungs than earlier reports which were said to be not enough to cause drowning.

Its likely that unless this condition was found she would have had problems with it eventually. Cocaine is known to increase blood pressure and heart rate. But eventually some other event probably would have triggered an attack.

These complications of advanced atherosclerosis are chronic, slowly progressive and cumulative. Most commonly, soft plaque suddenly ruptures (see vulnerable plaque), causing the formation of a thrombus that will rapidly slow or stop blood flow, leading to death of the tissues fed by the artery in approximately 5 minutes. This catastrophic event is called an infarction. One of the most common recognized scenarios is called coronary thrombosis of a coronary artery, causing myocardial infarction (a heart attack). The same process in an artery to the brain is commonly called stroke. Another common scenario in very advanced disease is claudication from insufficient blood supply to the legs, typically caused by a combination of both stenosis and aneurysmal segments narrowed with clots.

Atherosclerosis affects the entire artery tree, but mostly larger, high-pressure vessels such as the coronary, renal, femoral, cerebral, and carotid arteries. These are termed "clinically silent" because the person having the infarction does not notice the problem and does not seek medical help, or when they do, physicians do not recognize what has happened.

So there you have it folks. Live fast, love hard, die young. Its true.

France to Go After Jihadi Websites

Nicholas Sarkozy: The Jawa Report's biggest fan:

Sarkozy argued that it was time to treat those who browse extremist websites the same way as those who consume child pornography....

"Anyone who regularly consults Internet sites which promote terror or hatred or violence will be sentenced to prison," he told a campaign rally in Strasbourg, in eastern France. "What is possible for pedophiles should be possible for trainee terrorists and their supporters, too."

Amen brother. It is -- literally -- the same argument I've been using for years.

The critics of Sarkozy's proposal are already claiming that any one who now visits a jihadi website will be jailed. But I don't think that's the case at all. They're looking for regular visitors to jihadi websites, not the casual lookie-loo. The key words here being "regular visitors".

I'll note that the Forsane Alizza internet group, of which Mohammad Mera belonged, had 415 members. And that's just a single online extremist group. There are many more that cater to French speakers.

And even though France had outlawed the group, they continued to carry on their activities online. Banning organizations that support terror rings hallow in the internet age. So, we can't assemble together physically? We'll just get together online!

If you don't understand that cyberspace shares many of the characteristics of physical space, you've already ceded this important territory to the enemy.

Of course, Either Sarkozy doesn't realize the scale of the problem and he'll backpedal when he realizes that thousands of his citizens visit extremist websites, or it's time to invest in whatever French company makes striped uniforms.

Al Qaeda linked terror group, Jund al Khilafah, claims Toulouse shooting

Via Roggio

Jund al Khilafah, or Soldiers of the Caliphate, an al Qaeda and Haqqani Network-linked terror group that is based along the Afghan-Pakistani border, claimed credit for one of the shootings attributed to Mohamed Merah, a French citizen and resident of Toulouse who was killed in a shootout by French police earlier today after a two-day-long standoff. The terror group released a statement today that was published on several jihadist web forums. A portion of the statement, translated by the SITE Intelligence Group, is below:
On Tuesday, 19 March, one of the knights of Islam, our brother Yusuf al-Firansi [the French], we ask Allah to accept him, went out in an operation that shook the foundations of Zio-Crusaderdom in the whole world and filled the hearts of the enemies of Allah with fear. While we claim our responsibility for these blessed operations, we say that the crimes that Israel is committing against our people in the pure land of Palestine, and in Gaza in particular, will not pass without punishment. The mujahideen everywhere are determined to retaliate for every drop of blood that was spilled unjustly and aggressively in Palestine, Afghanistan, and other Muslim countries.[More...]
However, Jund al-Khilafa did not claim credit for the murder of the French soldiers...

Shocking News! Mother Warned French Authorities About Mohammed Merah Two Years Ago!

Times of Israel:

A French newspaper reported Wednesday evening that a woman twice complained to police about the suspect in the shooting attack on a Jewish school in Toulouse two years ago, after he tried to indoctrinate her son.

The angry mother of a teenage boy told the Telegramme newspaper that Mohammed Merah was trying to “recruit” her son to al-Qaeda with songs and videos.

“I am shocked. All these people had to die before they finally arrest Mohammed Merah. What an enormous waste,” said the woman, who asked to remain anonymous but asserted she’s willing to talk to the police. “The police knew this individual was dangerous and radicalized. I complained to the police twice about Mohammed Merah and tried to follow up several times.”

The woman said that Merah made her 15-year-old son listen to songs, which he said were from the Koran, but these were actually calls to go to war.

Merah took her son to his home, where several sabers hung on the wall, to further indoctrinate him. He made him watch al-Qaeda videos of women being shot in the head and men being strangled to death, the mother recalled.

It's not really that shocking. Authorities don't want to be violating al-Qaeda's free speech rights. You can kill al-Qaeda but to thwart their propaganda and recruiting would be cruel.

but often they judge the value of intelligence from surveillance to be greater than the risk to national security of letting them continue. Which is correct, I mean Merah wasn't really a risk to French national security, he was only dangerous to the people he murdered.

Just like Censored31's blog, although its smack dab in the middle of a bunch of dead bodies. Apparently its intelligence value is greater than the value of the lives of the dead people. How many more will have to die before the risk of allowing he and others like him to incite murder outweigh the value of the intelligence gathered? IMO we're way past that point with Anjem Choudary's groups.

Update: American officials didn't want Mohammed Merah on any plane that came near US airspace.

Shocking......

Toulouse Killer Had History Of Violence

Despite some claims that Mohammed Merah was "polite, gentle, and courteous" (scroll down to 12:35), a neighbor has come forward saying Merah threatened her and her family.

In one incident, Merah gave her 15-year-old son a quran and then forced him to watch beheading videos. She filed a complaint with police, who did nothing:

The mother filed a complaint with the police, which according to her caused Merah to become upset. “He came to the front of our home, threatened me and hit me. He said that I was an atheist and that I must pay like all the rest of France’s citizens,” she said.

She further stated that Merah claimed he would “wipe out all those who kill Muslims.” She stated that two days after the incident, Merah struck her son and daughter in the presence of eyewitnesses. However, no one intervened. The mother still has a copy of the complaint that was filed, as well as her daughter’s medical documents.

The woman also stated that the “true mind” behind the suspect was his brother Abdelkader, who is currently in police custody. “It is he who brainwashed [Merah] and often flew out of France,” she said.

Abdelkader is ion a path to become a great Islamic leader or Imam. That is, he appears to be good at motivating others to commit violence but he himself keeps his hands clean. In other words, a coward.

It reminds me of their prophet, Muhammad. He would preach the glory of martyrdom, but he made certain he was never in a position to be martyred himself. Not only did he distance himself from the battlefield, but he took extra precautions to ensure his own safety, such as wearing two coats of mail, surrounding himself with bodyguards willing to die for him, and retreating to nearby mountains when the fighting became too intense.

The great example for Muslims to follow.

They, of course, are the dour men and women of Ennahda, Tunisia's version of the Muslim Brotherhood.

“It is a fascist party,” Sghayier continued. “They tried to convince people they're just defending religion and they won the election that way, but they have a fascist program. They said if they win they will create 500,000 jobs for unemployed people, but they gave the ministry of employment to a different party. Nothing happened. They're not even trying. It's a fascist party because it's protecting the Salafists and other extremists. We don't only have the Salafists here, we also have Hizb ut-Tahrir. The interior minister did not even move his finger when the Tunisian national flag was attacked at Manouba University by Salafists. Last week, on March 7, they took down our country's flag and replaced it with their black flag.”

He was referring to the black Salafist flag, the same one used by the bloody Abbasid caliphate and al-Qaeda.

French Murderer for al-Qaeda Dead

Good News:

France shooting suspect dead after standoff with police in Toulouse apartment, Sarkozy's office and police confirm..
The Pepe' LePew of Jihad is dead.

CNN:

rench police burst into the apartment of a suspected al Qaeda-trained militant accused of killing seven people, prompting a shootout that ended with Mohammed Merah, gun in hand, jumping out a window to his death, authorities said Thursday.
More here on Merah's links to the Online Cyber Jihad community, including Sharia4Belgium, Sharia4France and Force de Defense Musulmane sur Internet...
News reports today have linked the Toulouse gunman responsible for the murders of seven people, now identified as French citizen Mohammed Merah, to a recently banned French extremist group with connections to Britain.

Named Forsane Alizza (FA – the Knights of Pride), the group bears many similarities to the UK-based al-Muhajiroun/Islam4UK network.

Its worthy to note that there has been a recent spate of Violence with Jihadis connected to Southwestern France and Belgium.

In fact one of the more famous of French speaking Jihadis had the attack on the Jewish school pegged While the French Police and the Media were still chasing after ghost Nazis. I don't feel this is coincidental.

Islamist Murders Jews; Media Rushes To Defend Islamism

Breitbart hit the nail on the head:

Left-wingers quickly jumped on the attacks to proclaim that it was white right-wingers at work. The anti-Israel, left-wing UK newspaper The Guardian quickly announced that “the shooting has already sent tremors through France's presidential election. The first to say what was on everyone's mind was not the Socialist challenger François Hollande but the centrist François Bayrou. He said the killings were the product of a sick society, with politicians who pointed the finger and inflamed passions.”

Of course, that was when the left thought it was a right-wing extremist who had committed the murders. The media and the leftists in the West would never deliberately use such inflammatory rhetoric to describe Islamic murders.

Can you imagine the outrage if Francois Hollande had been describing Islamism as "the product of a sick society"?

Breitbart goes on:

For those who live in the real world, this news is anything but surprising. Islamist radicals, including members of al-Qaeda, have routinely attacked Jews all over the world, from the Chabad of Mumbai to the attempted killings of Israeli diplomats in India and Georgia to the murder of Jews at the El-Al counter of the Los Angeles International Airport.

Yet the media wouldn’t draw that conclusion. Instead, they went into full-on Islam whitewashing, citing the usual liberal bromide that poverty causes Islamists to murder Jews. The Telegraph’s Ed West wrote: “Islam is not to blame for the Toulouse killings … It is not religion that turns some young Muslim men in the West violent, but the sense of alienation and frustration that inevitably comes from being a second-generation immigrant.”

Read it all.

Islamist Responsible For France School Shootings
Suspect Named Mohammed Merah Surrounded
Shooter Claims Belongs to al Qaeda
UPDATED/BUMPED/STICKY

france shooting_mug.jpg
Update: Image credit Haaretz

[Video the above image was taken from is below fold..SH]

Reuters is reporting that at least one member of an Islamist group is responsible for the shootings in France:

TOULOUSE, March 21 (Reuters) - Two French police officers were injured in a shoot-out during a raid on a house in Toulouse on Wednesday to arrest suspects in the killings of three children and a rabbi at a Jewish school in southwest France this week, a police source said.

The source said the raid began at 3:00 a.m. local time (0200 GMT) and was ongoing, but did not provide further details.

French news channel BFM TV said the suspects were linked to an Islamist group which it identified as Forsane Alizza. BFM said police were negotiating with a 24-year-old man inside the house.

Police believe only one was the shooter. It is unclear what role, if any, the other suspect(s) had in the gruesome murders.

Forsane Alizza is a French radical Islamic group know for flash mob-style protests. The group was supposedly disbanded in January for inciting racial hatred.

Some of you may have already read about it, but the killing of the little girl was especially cold-blooded. Yeshiva World has chilling details:

Witnesses explain the gunman stopped shooting for a brief moment, apparently to change clips in his gun. He entered the school and grabbed Miriam Monsonego (8) HY”D as she was running. He grabbed her hair and fired at her body. As she bled out and slumped to the floor, he listed her head and fired two shots at her head from point blank range to make certain his Jewish victim would not survive.
There is no part of hell hot enough for the savage who perpetrated these killings. There is no place in this world or the next for such cruelty. It is something no civilized human being could ever do to another.

Update by Howie: VOA:

French police identify the suspect as 24 year-old Mohammed Merah, a Frenchman of Algerian origin.

Police have him holed up in a house in Toulouse. Interior Minister Claude Gueant, who is outside the house, says police are determined to take Merah alive.

Gueant says the suspect claims he belongs to al-Qaida, and that he wanted to avenge Palestinian children killed in the Middle East. Police arrested his brother shortly after raiding the house early Wednesday.

The gunman is accused of murdering a rabbi and three children - ages four, five, and seven - at the Jewish school in Toulouse before driving off on a motorcycle.

Well so much for that Nazi theory.
Mohammed Merah visited Pakistan twice, in 2010 and 2011, and was arrested at Kandahar in southern Afghanistan at the end of 2010. The Afghan authorities notified French police.

After the first two shootings, in Toulouse and Montauban, he was "in the sights" of France's domestic intelligence service, the DCRI, along with others, an unnamed official told AFP news agency.

A crucial piece of evidence appears to have been an email account used to contact the first shooting victim, who had advertised a motorcycle online.

Update by SH: It is now being reported Merah may have been arrested Still sketchy. Update No, he wasn't arrested.

Read Jihadology's tweets on Storify for background on Forsane Alizza

A tweet from Internet Haganah shows on his timeline:

Just a reminder: as per repeated messages from AQ, if the Toulouse shooter says he's AQ, he is, period
Aaron also noted the standoff may take awhile. The shooter may be uploading videos he supposedly took during the shooting.

Update: The perp reportedly called France 24's Ebba Kalondo hours before raid [h/t J.M. Berger] Wow!

Update by DMartyr: Relax, everyone! Ed West at The Telegraph assures us it had nothing to do with Islam. We are all just a bunch of Islamophobes for even thinking it.

Update by DMartyr: Surveillance frames of suspect:

Update by SH: Forsane Alizza Background Brief by ICT's Jihadi Websites Monitoring Group [h/t Aaron]

UPDATE by Rusty: The Forsane Alizza website is down, but the Internet Archive has a backup of the site. Here's a translated screenshot of the site from July of last year to give you a taste of what these guys are all about.

forsane-alizza-website.jpg

And here is a link to their Daily Motion page. They have 53 videos there.

The common themes of both at first glance seems to be the usual combination of cries of "Islamophobia" mixed with a narrative about a 'war on Islam'. Of course, you-know-who (Zionists) are really behind this war.

One interesting tidbit though is a series of articles on Samuel Huntington's Clash of Civilizations. Only, this isn't the usual critique of the book that posited that the 'borders of Islam are bloody'. No, this is a guide on how to bring about a clash between Islam and the West.

It looks like our suspect may have been heeding that advice.

UPDATE by Rusty: I can't help but wonder out loud -- this guy was arrested in Afghanistan and then sent back to France. He was on the radar of Frencc intelligence. So, why the hell a) wasn't he arrested earlier? b) all the talk about a 'neo-Nazi'?

People don't go to Afghanistan on vacation. Especially people belonging to a group known to have terrorist sympathies.

Two alternative explanations come to mind. Either the jihadi problem in Toulouse is so big that it was impossible to round up the usual suspects in a timely manner, or the French authorities have become so PC that they cannot or will not name a Muslim as a person of interest for fear of being labeled Islamophobes.

Update by SH: Web footprints of perps group, Forsane Alizza

Also, some joker is pretending to be him on twitter, not a smart thing to do me thinks.

UPDATE by Rusty: Apparently, he has an older brother named Abdelkader Merah who has been implicated in a terrorism case before.

The family that jihads together .......

Update 03/22/12 at 7:39 CDT: Mohammed Merah is dead!

Toulouse Soldiers

The media made a big deal out of the first three victims - all soldiers - being Muslims of "North African" descent.

But when I look at these soldiers, I just don't see it. I can't tell whether they are Muslim, Christian or Jewish. Not from appearance. And, maybe it's just me, but I also can't tell their nationality or ethnicity. They could be my American neighbors or my British cousins.

They could be citizens of any nation and followers of any religion. But one thing that was evident by their appearance - they were soldiers.

toulose soldiers2.jpg
(Toulouse Victims from left to right: Corporal Abel Chennouf and Paratrooper Imad Ibn Ziaten. The third soldier is in critical condition. Our prayers that he fully recovers.)

Why the media instantly latched on background and religious beliefs can only, in my opinion, be attributed to the mainstream media's political correctness attitude. I have no doubt, playing on their ethnicity and Islamic faith was a deliberate ploy to drum up support for their Neo-Nazi narrative.

But what the media has also done to these brave soldiers is disgraced their honor, their valor, their patriotism, and diminished their very existence in order to push a politically correct multiculturalism agenda.

Shame on the media for further exploiting and victimizing these soldiers and their families.

UN Tweet Partly Responsible For Toulouse Massacre?

Anorak asks, "Did UN worker’s anti-Israel tweet provoke Mohammed Merah to murder?"

I think that's a very good question. Mohammed Merah claims he killed the Jewish children in revenge 'for deaths of Palestinian children'.

Just over a week ago, a UN national officer who tweets under the name @KhuloodBadawi posted a picture of a bloodied Palestinian girl. @KhuloodBadawi falsely attributed the killing to Israel:

khuloodbadawi_tweet1.png

In fact, the little girl had been mortally injured in a car accident back in 2006.

But did the image of a dead Palestinian child and a UN officer claiming the cause was Israeli attacks incite Mohammed Merah to execute little Miriam Monsonego?

Worst President Ever Number of the Week: $50 Billion
UPDATE: Most Unpatriotic President Ever?

Between March 13th -- the last time I posted on this -- and the close of the business day on March 19th the Obama Administration has added exactly $50,060,518,615.20 to the national debt.

You read that right. I actually had to calculate that three times because I couldn't believe the numbers, so I opened up Excel and just copied and pasted the total public debt on March 19th and then subtracted the total public debt on March 13th. Those are Treasury Department figures.

In the past week -- that's seven days -- the Obama Administration has added over 50 billion dollars to the national debt! That's BILLION with a B.

And yet he's trying to convince people that a mere $3 billion a year would help alleviate the debt?

On average Obama has added $2 billion to the debt every day. He deficit spends $3 billion every 1.5 days!

People, we've got to end all the other distractions. Obama and the media will try -- in fact, is trying and succeeding! -- to do anything and everything to draw the nation's attention away from the stark reality that is the mess Obama has made out of our national finances.

It's intentional. And we simply cannot play the game.

The next time any one in the media asks any Republican politician about the "war on women" the answer should be $50 billion: the amount of money women were asked to borrow from their children so President Obama could buy votes from those dependent on government.

Why does President Obama hate women and children so much?

UPDATE: If Bush's deficit spending was unpatriotic, what do we call the guy who's taken that figured and nearly doubled it in half as much time?

Number of the hour: $4,629,900,685,123.40 is the amount of money to the penny that Obama has added to the national debt since the day he took office (March 4, 2009) -- just over 3 years ago.

It took Bush two recessions, 9/11, two wars, two massive new entitlement programs, and eight years to do the same damage.

Unpatriotic: I do not think that word means what you think it means.

Thanks to SH for the reminder.

Enough of the Phony Outrage and the Phony War on Women

People, I can't take it anymore. All this phony outrage about what can or cannot be said about women.

If you want to make a point about the double standard applied to conservative women vs. liberal women that's fine. There is a point to be made there. There is a double standard. Keep pointing that out.

But I'm beginning to think that some people really want an apology from every one about every stupid little thing they've ever said about a woman. These modern day Victorians seem to believe that women need special protection from the slings and arrows of .... words?

Our ancestors treated women as second class citizens because they believed women were not as capable as men. They were thought of as something like a child. Their place was at home where they could be shielded from the harsh reality of the "man's world".

You people complaining about the war on women? It's you that believe women are incapable of defending themselves. It's you who believe that women have ears more sensitive than that of a man's. It's you who believe women are less capable than men.

You talk about women's empowerment, all the while treating them like little children. Either women can be criticized like men because they are equal, or they deserve special protection because they are less than equal.

I know, they have sophisticated arguments why women are both equal but also deserve special protection. Similar arguments were made in a book I once read: some animals are more equal than others.

That's been hard to swallow over the last week or two. But now I have to listen to people on our side of the debate complaining about ... the same damn thing?

I'm actually sympathetic to Bristol Palin's call for an apology from Obama, but not for the reasons she laid out. The reason Bristol Palin should have been off limits from the likes of Bill Maher has nothing to do with her sex.

Bristol Palin was a minor when she was skewered by the Left. We treat minors like children, incapable of fully defending themselves, because by definition they are children! People who say crass things about the minor children of politicians should be fired, boycotted, and occasionally punched in the mouth.

But all the rest? I just can't take it anymore. This silly your side is less classy then our side garbage where you go out and find comments on this or that website as proof that the other side is so much worse than our side.

It's like the entire media universe has been turned into the echo chamber that is the comments section of Little Green Footballs.

Look, people are assh*les. They say some really sh*tty things. They say these things about men and .... gasp! horror! ... women. Sometimes when they say these things they use words which some find offensive. Sometimes they say these words joking around. Sometimes the jokes are funny, sometimes they aren't.

I personally think these kinds of jokes are funny when the person telling them is the actual brunt of the joke. Playing the rube for a laugh. The sexist joke where the point isn't the joke itself but to make the person telling the joke look like a jerk.

And a racist joke every now and again can be .... funny. It all depends on the context. Is the point of the joke to demean the race? That's bad, but if the point is to make fun of the culture (as I think DeNero was going for) or make the guy telling the joke look like an idiot then even racist jokes can be good.

Which is in my mind what makes Stephen Colbert -- who plays the idiotic talking head to a tee -- funny, but Bill Maher and Jon Stewart -- who's humor consists solely of isn't every one but me stupid? -- not so much.

The point is that I don't want Rush Limbaugh to get fired for some stupid joke he made about a women, but neither do I want Bill Maher to get fired. At least, not for jokes about women. I'd like to see Maher fired for not being funny. Or insightful.

Women don't need our special protection. They're full capable human beings.

So, somebody call me when this whole stupid affair is over. I'll be the one not listening to talk radio, avoiding some of my favorite blogs, and skipping all the cable news networks. Because if I have to listen to one more sound bite where a politician uses the word "whore" again, I might just blow my brains out.

Also, I'm banning myself for being a misogynist for using the word "whore".

Media Labels Hispanic Man "White", Sans Ethnicity, In Shooting Of Black Teenager Trayvon Martin

Twitter is all a twit over this with nary a clue, or care, the shooter is Hispanic.

Via BigJ

On Friday night, a young African-American teenager, Trayvon Martin, was shot to death in Orlando by a neighborhood watch captain, George Zimmerman. The media immediately portrayed the death as a case of white on black racism. CBS News, on its Crimesider website, immediately called Zimmerman a “white neighborhood watch volunteer.” Martin’s parents accused the police of racism for not arresting Zimmerman.

There’s only one problem: Zimmerman is Hispanic. Within a few hours of its original report, CBS News was calling Zimmerman a mere “neighborhood watch captain,” without the racial modifier, quoting Zimmerman’s father to the effect that his son is Hispanic.

Not to lessen this teenager's death, but it is now being used as a cry against Florida's gun laws as well as screams of racism.

Time to buy more popcorn, I wanna see Al Sharpton make make a fool of himself

Note: "White neighborhood watch volunteer" is the spark that lit the fire.

Biden: Killing Bin Laden Most 'Audacious' Plan In 500 Years

Many of you don't realize it, but you experienced an important part of history. When Obama approved the killing of Osama bin Laden last year, it was the most DARING plan EVAH! (Or, at least in the past 500 years!)

Forget D-Day, Pearl Harbor, Gettysburg, the civil rights movement, Bunker Hill, Argonne Forest, Hiroshima, the Declaration of Independence, the adoption of the U.S. Constitution, the Space Race. They all pale in audacious comparison to Obama's decision to allow U.S. Seals to kill the most wanted terrorist in the world.

Just look at the intensity. They are watching the boldest plan in 500 years unfolding:

#Occupy Protesters Vandalized Historic Building And Statue

The Protesters of Peace & Social Justice™ are at it (again!) with more destruction and disrespect.

At their St. Louis rally this past weekend, they decided to spray paint a building in historic Reservoir Park:

stlouishouseoccupy.jpg

They spray painted a stone wall surrounding the reservoir with the words "occupy" and "attack" (there is a third word, but I can't read it.):

occupy_stlouis_vandalism.jpg

They also spray painted a 100-year-old statue and city landmark in the park:

occupy-vandal-statue.jpg
(Irony: Statue of Naked Truth is a symbol of truth and enlightenment.)

Must be a product of the American Dream.

(Hat Tip: Gateway Pundit)

Remember:

Obama supports these protesters.

Pelosi blesses them.

@AlecBaldwin thinks its "good".

Other 'products of the American Dream' that never seemed to affect the Tea Party...

Susan Chasnoff, an #Occupy protester, assures us this was not official actions of the #Occupy St. Louis movement.

But one has to wonder why no one from the #Occupy protest tried to stop the vandals. The vandals could not have gone unnoticed. The sheer amount of spray paint around the park indicates some culpability.

More pictures from StLToday:

occupy_vandals_stlouis.jpg

occupy_vandals_stlouis2.jpg

occupy_vandals_stlouis3.jpg

Update: A media representative of the St. Louis #Occupy movement, Chuck Whitthaus, had this to say about the graffiti:

"This is the first we've heard of this incident, we have no idea who might have done it nor do we care to speculate on it. With two people being shot by police in St. Louis over the weekend and the incident that happened Thursday we're more worried about brutal police violence and misconduct than graffiti. Occupy the Midwest was a group of individuals attempting to make decisions collectively through Our General Assembly process and no decision regarding graffiti came out of that body."

It's a vicious cycle, eh, Chuck? Violently protest the rich, destroy private property, vandalize city property, provoke police, resist police, and then you have to respond by violently protesting the police, destroying private property, vandalizing city property, provoking police, resisting police...

On and on it goes.

It's no wonder the #Occupy movement is so supportive of Palestine. They have the same mentality - attack, attack, attack, and then when their victim strikes back, they cry for more violence in retaliation.

Mob Of 20 Muslims Attack Man, Then Demand Revenge When Victim Fights Back

A mob of 20 angry Muslim men attacks two innocent bystanders. One of the victims, who suffered multiple skull fractures in the senseless, unprovoked beating, stabs a Muslim attacker to death. Prosecutors decline to charge the man because he clearly acted in self-defense.

But now the Muslim community is even more angry. They wanted the beating victim charged with murder. Since there were no charges, they want revenge.

Translated from Der Tagesspiegel via Jihad Watch:

After the fatal knife attack on an 18-year-old adolescent in Neukölln, there is talk of retaliation. Police officers visit families in the neighborhood and meeting places to talk about the release of the alleged offender.

It is an explosive mixture. Grief and anger determine the atmosphere in the neighborhood around the so-called "White Settlement" (Muslim ghetto) in Neukölln. In the new neighborhood, young people are using the word 'revenge' when talking about the fatal knife attack on 18-year-old Yusef El-A. 'I can guarantee one hundred percent that this will have a sequel. This is a separate universe with its own laws,' says Burak K. as he describes the tense situation.

China Selects Female Astronauts

Each female astronaut was selected based on having a flawless physique, pristine teeth, and absolutely no body odor. China is preparing for "long and tedious" space journeys with female astronauts joining men to "smooth out any tension."

Whether in space or not, I suggest most men are particularly fond of flawless women smoothing their tension.

UnFreakingBelievable! Zawahiri's Brother Walks

A military court has found him not guilty of all charges relating the the murder of Anwar Sadat.

mozawahii.jpgCNN:

Mohamed Al-Zawahiri is a member of the Egyptian Islamic Jihad, of which his brother was once a leader. The United States describes the group as a terrorist organization that merged with al Qaeda in 2001. Its "primary goals are to overthrow the Egyptian government and replace it with an Islamic state and attack U.S. and Israeli interest in Egypt and abroad," the U.S. State Department once said.

Five other Islamists charged with similar crimes were acquitted along with Al-Zawahiri, said Ghorab.

They are Abdel Aziz al-Jamal, Alaa Sarhan, Sayed Imam, Murgan Mustapha Salem and Mohamed Islamboli, the brother of the executed Islamist who killed Sadat, the attorney said.

France: Horrifying Account of Murder Of 8yr old Jewish School Girl

My word, what a cowardly bas**rd this killer is

......The local prosecutor, Michel Valet, said that a religious instructor, his two children and another child, the daughter of the school’s director, were killed in Monday’s attack and that a 17-year-old boy was seriously wounded. The killer “shot at everything he could see, children and adults, and some children were chased into the school,” Mr. Valet said.

The suspect pursued his last victim, an 8-year-old girl [Miriam Mosonego...ed], into the concrete courtyard, seizing and stopping her by her hair, said Nicole Yardeni, who leads the regional branch of the Crif, France’s most prominent Jewish association, and who viewed video surveillance footage of the killing.

His gun appeared to jam at that point, Ms. Yardeni said. Still holding the girl, the killer then changed weapons, from what police have identified as a 9 millimeter pistol to the .45-caliber. He shot her in the head and left, never removing his motorcycle helmet.

“It is unbearable that someone be able to dehumanize children to this point,” Ms. Yardeni said, choking back tears.[More..]

#VetThePrez: Bell's Critical Race Theory Promoted In Public Schools

obama_crt.jpg

Via BigG

A radical organization known as the Pacific Educational Group (PEG) is actively promoting Derrick Bell’s Critical Race Theory in public elementary and high schools nationwide, with an intense focus on what PEG calls “Systemic Racism.”

With the approval of the Obama administration, and under the guise of closing achievement gaps between black and white students, PEG is promoting teaching methods that discourage “black and brown” students from conforming to an inherently “white” -- and therefore racist -- curriculum.

PEG also encourages teachers to conform to the presumed cultural backgrounds of students, rather than focusing on norms of assessment and accountability.

Breitbart.com was alerted to the activity of PEG within schools by readers who responded to our reporting on President Barack Obama’s endorsement of Bell and his use of Critical Race Theory in his lectures at the University of Chicago.[Read it all...]

Notice the Che Guevara poster on the wall in this classroom, the video is from the PEG website via BreitbartTV:

Astroturfing Gun Policy

Don't miss Bob Owens' post at Pajamas Media on the Fast and Furious, Mexico and the Astroturfing of gun policy.

Fast and Furious was dependent on ATF officials bullying Arizona gun dealers into going along with the straw purchases of thousands of firearms. If they did not comply, they knew they faced the possibility of having their federal firearms licenses yanked and their livelihoods destroyed. At the point of purchase, the firearms obtained by straw purchasers were documented on a ATF Form 4473, a form used for logging purposes and for background checks. Section D of the document records the manufacturer or importer, model number, serial number, type, and caliber or gauge of each weapon purchased. The ATF then harvested this data, and logged it in a watch list.

From there, all they did was wait.

...They waited until someone died.

And once someone was dead then they had the had correct narrative to move forward.
The 90-percent lie repeated by every major cabinet official tied to a department involved in the plot and the president himself is the obvious link. President Obama, who promised Sarah Brady that he was working on gun control “under the radar,” used the 90-percent lie as an attempt to justify gun control. Attorney General Eric Holder, who became news again over the weekend for a 1995 campaign to demonize guns and gun-owners and who tried to use the terror attacks of 9/11 to justify gun control, pushed to reinstate the so-called “assault weapons” ban.

What excuse did Holder use to argue for reinstating the law? Guess.

Astroturf, the one trick pony of the Obama Administration.

al-Shabaab Arrests Abu Mansoor Al-Amriki?

Horn of Africa News:

The islamist militants of Al-shabab linked with Al-Qaeda have arrested on Monday a US-born jihadist in southern Somalia town, reports said.

Sources say some Al-shabab fighters have stormed the house of Abu Mansoor Al-Amriki in the town of Marko on Sunday afternoon and taken away to Qorioley district, just 120 Km away south of Mogadishu.

abu_mansoor_al-amrki-shabaab-trying-kill.jpg

Omar Hamami - better known as Abu Mansoor Al-Amriki - gave the warning in an undated video posted on several Somali websites and YouTube on Saturday, saying that his life is in danger from his fellow militants.

Judging from the comments on this video he is not long for this world.

Over the weekend al-Shabaab was quoted as saying, "Omar Hammami will face sharia justice over his unIslamic behavior."

Uh yeah.

Breitbart.com has uncovered video from 1995 of then-U.S. Attorney Eric Holder announcing a public campaign to "really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way."

Holder was addressing the Woman's National Democratic Club. In his remarks, broadcast by CSPAN 2, he explained that he intended to use anti-smoking campaigns as his model to "change the hearts and minds of people in Washington, DC" about guns.

"What we need to do is change the way in which people think about guns, especially young people, and make it something that's not cool, that it's not acceptable, it's not hip to carry a gun anymore, in the way in which we changed our attitudes about cigarettes."[More...]

India Commie Rebels Kidnap Italian Tourists in Orissa

Apparently, this is the first time Westerners have been kidnapped in Orissa

Maoist rebels have kidnapped two Italians in the eastern Indian state of Orissa, the first time Westerners have been abducted there.

Paulo Bosusco, 54, and Claudio Colangelo, 61, were abducted while trekking in the resort of Daringibadi in Kandhamal, officials said.

A Maoist spokesman accused the pair of photographing bathing women.

The rebels issued a list of demands for the men's release, including freeing top Maoist leaders.

Let's hope this pair are released, unharmed. Negotiating with crazy commie terrorists is a no win situation.

Swiss Teacher Kidnapped, American Murdered in Yemen

One day after two Swiss hostages escaped from Taliban captivity in Pakistan al-Qaeda in Yemen kidnapped a Swiss teacher in Yemen.

Today al-Qaeda claims to have killed an American that appears related to the case.

Gunmen shot dead an American teacher in the Yemeni province of Taiz on Sunday, two defense ministry officials said.

Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula -- the terror network's affiliate in Yemen -- claimed responsibility for the killing.

In a text message sent to Yemeni media outlets, the group said the victim was spreading Christianity to the Yemeni people, calling him one of the biggest missionaries in the country.

Recently AQAP also claimed it had killed an American CIA operative in an attack against the Yemeni military, if true that would be the second American killed there recently.

Also it might indicate revenge for the escape of the Swiss hostages in Pakistan?

Command and control in Pakistan? Nahhh.

Coptic Pope Dies in Egypt

Daily Egypt News:

CAIRO: Thousands of grieving Egyptian Copts streamed into St Mark's Cathedral in Cairo on Sunday to catch a last glimpse of their spiritual leader Pope Shenouda III, taking pictures on their mobile phones and weeping.

Shenouda died on Saturday aged 88, following a long illness, setting in motion the process to elect a new patriarch for the Middle East's largest Christian community.

He led the Copts, estimated at 10 percent of Egypt's population of more than 80 million, for the best part of a generation, during which the country was hit by a wave of Islamic militancy from which he sought to protect his people.

Shenuda's body, dressed in a golden crown and formal robes, with a gold knobbed staff cradled on his shoulder, was placed upright on the papal throne in the cathedral where it will remain on display until his funeral on Tuesday.

American Hostage Released in Iraq

Muqtada al Sadr's militiamen say they've released an American "soldier" they've been holding captive for the past nine months. The problem? There are no missing US soldiers in Iraq!

So this guy seems most likely to be a civilian. I think the closest we'll come to a "soldier" is maybe a private security contractor. If that's right, then I wonder if his firm paid a ransom?

The United Nations mission in Iraq says it has taken custody of a man whom two Shiite lawmakers described as a U.S. citizen who was held captive by an Iraqi militia....

Senior Sadrist official Abdul Hadi al-Mutairi said the man was a U.S. soldier named Michael Hill. But the U.S. Army said it does not know of any unaccounted for troops in Iraq. According to some media reports, the man said he was working in a civilian capacity at the time of his abduction.

Since Sadr answers to the Iranians, I can't help but wonder if the alternative to a ransom might be some sort of gesture by the Mullahs?

American Traitor Claims Shabaab Trying to Kill Him
Foreign Fighters Being Arrested, Killed by al Shabaab?
al-Shabaab Responds in Press Release(UPDATED:BUMPED)

abu_mansoor_al-amrki-shabaab-trying-kill.jpg

An Alabama native who left the US to fight with the al Qaeda pledged al Shabaab group in Somalia has issued a video in which he claims the group may now be trying to kill him. Omar Shafik Hammami -- calling himself "Abu Mansour al-Amriki" --- has appeared in several propaganda videos speaking on behalf of the al Qaeda affiliate. He speaks briefly in English starting around 43 seconds in.

Farewell.... Goodbye....

UPDATE by Rusty: I've transcribed the English portion of the video below. An Arabic speaker tells me that he says essentially the same thing in Arabic. Here it is:

To whomever it may reach from the Muslims I'm Abu Mansour al-Amriki.

I record this message today because I feel my life may be endangered by Harakat al-Shabaab al-Mujahideen, due to some differences that occurred between us regarding matters of the sharia and matters of strategy.

Also, I'll note that the video was uploaded today by a user calling himself somalimuhajirwarrior. Could this be his YouTube channel? It seems likely that it's either his or one of his close associates.

Notice the flag that he flies behind him. That's al Qaeda's flag. So, whatever differences he may have with al Shabaab, it doesn't sound like he's renounced his essential commitment to al Qaeda. Which is odd, given that al Shabaab officially joined al Qaeda just a few weeks ago. Some are even now calling them al Qaeda in East Africa (AQEA).

UPDATE: Over at OJihad Florian offers this possible explanation:

A European intelligence source recently spoke to me about the Somali situation and said Al-Shabaab has become very suspicious when it comes to foreign fighters. Some fighters – especially from Kenya and Ethiopia – had been accused of being spies and were executed. Perhaps Hammami is now facing a similar fate.
That would explain a lot.

UPDATE: Nothing showing up on Google News about this yet. However, trying to find some story with the Arabic parts of the video translated I came across an article that reminded me about something I hadn't thought about in some time.

When Hammami was in college, he was President of the local chapter of the Muslim Students Association. That would be the same MSA whose websites were being "monitored" by the NYPD which caused such a recent ruckus in the MFM.

UPDATE: I found this at a Kenyan source. It was published hours before the video was released, so there might be something to it:

Al-Amriki differed with [the spiritual leader of al Shabaab Ahmed] Godane over suspicious circumstances in which foreign fighters in the ranks of Al-Shabab were dying or being killed in combat, the highly-placed source said.

''We had information early today saying that two foreign fighters, Al-Misri and Salah-Udin - a German, were arrested and detained on the orders of Godane,'' the source told The Jackal News. The two fighters were inquiring from the leader of the rebels about the suspicious circumstances under which the jihadists were being dying, the source added.

This is indeed an interesting development. If nothing else, it means that there is some kind of discord going on within the ranks of al Shabaab. The kind of discord that Hammami believes could get him killed.

UPDATE: Interesting, his once loyal supporters and fans over at AMEF have removed the link to the video that was posted there just two hours ago. Apparently the central node of the English language online jihadosphere wants to keep what appears to be red-on-red violence out of sight and out of mind.

Hat Tip: Jihadology.

Update by Howie 03/17/2012. al-Shabaab's press office released the following statement today.

HSM is surprised by the video of Abu Mansoor #AlAmriki that surfaced on the internet recently claiming that his life is ‘endangered by HSM.

A formal investigation is just underway and HSM is still attempting to verify the authenticity as well as the motivations behind the video.

We assure our Muslim brothers that #AlAmriki is not endangered by the Mujahideen &our brother still enjoys all the privileges of brotherhood.

HSM Press Office.

Harakat Al-Shabaab Al Mujahideen.

So see there, they are guaranteeing al-Amriki's security, I bet he feels so much better. Just turn yourself in Bro. Surely the Muslims are merciful to the Muslims and harsh with the Kufr. Just trust them. No?

Ansar al-Sunnah Leader Arrested Crossing Into Syria

AFP:

FALLUJAH, Iraq — Iraqi security forces on Wednesday arrested the head of Ansar al-Sunna, a Sunni insurgent group said to be linked to Al-Qaeda, the counter-terrorism chief for Anbar province said.

"Iraqi forces today arrested the leader of Ansar al-Sunna, Walid Khaled Ali, as he tried to illegally infiltrate into Iraqi territory from Syria," Brigadier General Khaled al-Dulaimi told AFP.

He "tried to cross on foot near Al-Walid border post" into Anbar province in western Iraq, Dulaimi said.

...Ansar al-Sunna is an ultra-conservative Sunni Salafist group that has claimed several attacks against US and Iraqi security forces.

More on al-Qaeda and related groups recent activity in Libya and Syria here at Frontline"
The news comes just a week after Director of National Intelligence James Clapper testified to Congress that Al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI) is extending its reach into Syria and may have been behind high-profile suicide attacks on state facilities in Damascus in December and in Aleppo earlier this month.

FRONTLINE turned to Brian Fishman, a counterterrorism expert at the New America Foundation, to understand more about AQI’s ties to Syria and the likelihood that it is behind the recent attacks.

“In Libya, Egypt and Tunisia, Al Qaeda didn’t have a lot of game on the ground. They didn’t have major networks where they could exploit their own authority and influence in those rebellions. In Syria they do have those networks.”
As they say, read the rest.

Update: More bad Karma for Syria.

Three people were killed in a car bomb blast in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo Sunday, opposition activists said.

At least 25 others were wounded in the explosion, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Syrian state television described the blast as a "terrorist explosion" that occurred between two residential buildings. Opposition activists said the bomb detonated near the city's political security branch.

The blast occurred a day after a series of explosions in Damascus that killed dozens.

A Syrian rebel leader vehemently refuted the government's claim that so-called "terrorists" -- not the regime itself -- were behind the Damascus attacks.

The Post in Which I Agree With Osama bin Laden

If broken clocks get the time right twice a day, why not evil broken clocks?

Before his death, Osama bin Laden boldly commanded his network to organize special cells in Afghanistan and Pakistan to attack the aircraft of President Barack Obama and Gen. David Petraeus.

“The reason for concentrating on them,” the al-Qaeda leader explained to his top lieutenant, “is that Obama is the head of infidelity and killing him automatically will make (Vice President Joe) Biden take over the presidency. … Biden is totally unprepared for that post, which will lead the U.S. into a crisis. As for Petraeus, he is the man of the hour … and killing him would alter the war’s path” in Afghanistan.

UPDATE: Oh, snap! I totally didn't mean to imply that I agreed w/ bin Laden that Obama should be killed.

Hell no.

I meant, I agree with him that Biden is not now nor will he ever be ready for prime time as President.

Farrakhan Denies Muslim Slave Trade, Blames Jews

Here's an article by Charles Jacobs, President American Anti-Slavery Group, taking Louis Farrakhan's to task over anti-Semetic remarks about slavery:

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan addressed an estimated 600 students at UC Berkeley last Saturday, and told Black students not to befriend any Jew without first reading “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews,” a book whose thesis is that “the Jews” were behind the black slave trade.

Scholars both black and white have exposed the NOI book as a pack of lies, a modern day calumny which, much like their medieval analogues -- “the Jews poisoned the wells,” “the Jews make matzo with the blood of Christian children” --is meant to incite hatred for Jewish people. Dangerous hatred. The Daily Californian reports that Jewish students were hurt and shocked. No doubt.

But what will be more shocking perhaps is Minister Farrakhan’s own semi-secret relationship with the modern day slaving of African Blacks by people, and in countries, that the NOI leader has an interest to protect.

More on Santorum Porn Gate

Stacy McCain emailed a response to my post on Santorum's crusade against porn. You can view his post here.

Let me just note why I think he has this wrong and why I don't think the Daily Caller wasn't being unfair to Santorum. I think McCain makes two good points, but which miss the mark.

1) He notes that both Gingrich and Romney have made similar comments and/or pledges to "enforce present laws against obscenity".

So, he takes this as a double standard being imposed against Santorum: namely, that all three candidates share the same view on enforcing laws against obscenity.

But look closely at the policy statements of Romney and Gingrich vs. Santorum's. Romney's statement focuses on increased parental responsibilities and the "promotion of parental software controls that guard our children from Internet pornography.” Gingrich's response was a one liner, “Yes, I will appoint an Attorney General who will enforce these laws.”

They bare little resemblance to Santorum's focus on prohibiting the "distribution of hardcore (obscene) pornography on the Internet, on cable/satellite TV, on hotel/motel TV, in retail shops and through the mail or by common carrier.”

Romney and Gingrich understand that this just isn't a big issue. And that to the extent that it is, it's not something worth putting on their websites as a policy statement. It just doesn't merit the attention.

McCain tries to downplay this by saying that Santorum's policy statement on pornography is merely one of two dozen policy statement on his website.

So, you're saying that internet pornography is one of the top 25 issues our nation faces? I'm sorry, it isn't.

Maybe if we had a list of 1,000 issues that merited our attention, it might make that list. But top 25?

Umm, no.

Moreover, Romney and Gingrich were responding to a question posed to them. They didn't initiate a policy statement.

Clearly, Santorum and his campaign think this is an issue worthy of the candidates time. The other two? Not so much.

2) The second objection, as I take it, is that The Daily Caller was making this an issue now when the policy statement has been at Santorum's website for some time says something about their motivations.

Possibly. But the last time I checked Tucker Carlson wasn't in the bag for Mitt Romney, he was in the bag for Ron Paul. I'm not sure how this helps Ron Paul. Nothing can help Ron Paul.

The real explanation here, I think, is that nobody really took Santorum's presidential bid that seriously until recently. That is, he hasn't been vetted like the two other candidates have.

As I wrote two days ago:

The only reason Santorum polls so well against Obama is that most people don't know him. Of the three major candidates he's the least well known.

Romney is a known factor because he's been running for President for four years now. In addition, he's the front runner so he's garnered more attention than all the other candidates.

Gingrich is known because he was Speaker of the House.

Santorum? Outside a very narrow national constituency of pro-life activists, he's a mystery to most. Ambiguity is a good thing for candidates as it allows people to project their own attitudes on the politician.

But it won't last. As Santorum solidifies his claim that he's the only legitimate challenger to Romney, people will begin to get to know him.

And if he wins the nomination, do not think the MSM will allow him to remain out of the spotlight as they did with Obama. Santorum will be vetted. And when he is, many are not going to like what they see.

I'm wrong sometimes. I hope that I'm man enough to admit when I'm wrong.

But on this? No, I think I have this one right.

This is when Hanks[Tom Hanks narrates..ed] pipes in with the biggest laugh line of the video: “And when he faced his country, who looked to him for answers, he would not dwell in blame or dreamy idealism … As president, the tough decisions that he would make would not only determine the course of the nation, they’d reveal the character of the man.”

This is patently absurd. Obama has done nothing but blame George W. Bush for all of his problems, including foot fungus, for the last four years. His speeches are a constant combination of high-flown rhetoric (dreamy idealism, you might say) and purposeful falsehoods about his economic plans. This is not a president who took responsibility. This is a president who rammed through legislation, then blamed Bush when everything when wrong.[More...]

Driver Victim Of Spontaneous Combustion

An update to THIS story.

The AP is reporting:

A car that was stopped after a pursuit on a mountainous highway near San Diego exploded and burned Thursday, killing the driver and injuring a Border Patrol agent, authorities said.

There is no evidence that the driver was involved in smuggling migrants, drugs or weapons, said Border Patrol spokesman Steven Pitts.

Whew! Thank goodness! When you hear of cars exploding, you automatically think of terrorism and car bombs and suicide murderers. I'm so happy this appears to be a simple case of spontaneous combustion.

In fact, the investigation seems to be focusing on the fact that, ten years ago, smugglers often drove on the wrong side of the highway to avoid border patrol checkpoints.

America is safe again.

WTH? Marine Killed by Afghan Soldier Last Month

edward-dycus.jpg
RIP sir

Military initially listed his death as combat related.

Lance Cpl. Edward J. Dycus was shot in the back of the head while standing guard at Afghan-US Base

WASHINGTON – An Afghan soldier shot to death a 22-year-old Marine at an outpost in southwestern Afghanistan last month in a previously undisclosed case of apparent Afghan treachery that marked at least the seventh killing of an American military member by his supposed ally in the past six weeks, Marine officials said.

Lance Cpl. Edward J. Dycus of Greenville, Miss., was shot in the back of the head on Feb. 1 while standing guard at an Afghan-U.S. base in the Marja district of Helmand province. The exact circumstances have not been disclosed, but the Dycus family has been notified that he was killed by an Afghan soldier. Marine officials discussed the matter on condition of anonymity because it is still under investigation.

When the Pentagon announced Dycus' death the day after the shooting, it said he died "while conducting combat operations" in Helmand. It made no mention of treachery, which has become a growing problem for U.S. and allied forces as they work closely with Afghan forces to wind down the war.

The Associated Press inquired about the Dycus case after Maj. Gen. John Toolan, the top Marine commander in Afghanistan at the time, said in an AP interview March 7 that the Afghan government has been embarrassed by recent cases of Afghan soldiers turning their guns on their supposed partners.

"I had one just a month ago where a lance corporal was killed, shot in the back of the head, and the Afghan minister of defense was here the next day" to discuss custody of the shooter, Toolan said, speaking from his Regional Command-Southwest headquarters at Camp Leatherneck.[More....]

We must not embarrass the Afghan gov? Screw that!

Talk about a disservice to this brave young man and his family.

Rick Santorum Vows to Tackle Important Issues, Like Internet Porn

It was just yesterday that I was writing about why Santorum is the least electable of the three viable Republican candidates. Namely, that the reason people like Rick Santorum is that they don't know him. The people who know him best, his constituents, ousted Santorum -- the sitting incumbent who vastly outspent his rival -- in a landslide.

And why? Because he isn't capable of letting the social issues that are either minor or that no one cares about slide. As I said, "He's a guy who just doesn't know when to shut up about issues he cares about."

He's a crusader. But a crusader against things no one cares about. Or if they do it's number 29 on their list of 30 things they'd like the government to do. Like use the bully pulpit to denounce birth control.

And the power of the Justice Department to crack down on porn on the internet:

Santorum says in a statement posted to his website, “The Obama Administration has turned a blind eye to those who wish to preserve our culture from the scourge of pornography and has refused to enforce obscenity laws.”

If elected, he promises to “vigorously” enforce laws that “prohibit distribution of hardcore (obscene) pornography on the Internet, on cable/satellite TV, on hotel/motel TV, in retail shops and through the mail or by common carrier.”

As a matter of policy, internet porn isn't something so important that a government which borrows 40 cents on every dollar it spends should be concerned about.

As a matter of politics? It's just not something most of us care about. And it seems weird that Santorum does.

But try telling that to candidate Don Quixote.

Philly Man Arrested for Funding Terror

No homegrown extremism alert. The Islamic Jihad Union is an Usbek terror group which operates both in Uzbekistan and Pakistan in close coordination with al Qaeda and the Pakistani Taliban. Oddly, many of their members are from the Turkish community in Germany. This is truly an international terror group, and some of their supporters are right here in the USA.

FBI press release:

Bakhtiyor Jumaev, age 45, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, was arrested this morning without incident by members of the Philadelphia FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force, the Department of Justice announced today.

Jumaev was charged by criminal complaint in the District of Colorado with one count of conspiracy to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorism organization, specifically, the Islamic Jihad Union (IJU). If convicted, Jumaev faces a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison and up to a $250,000 fine. The defendant made his initial appearance in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia, where he was advised of his rights and the charges pending against him.

The FBI has been conducting an investigation into the activities of Jumaev and his associate, Jamshid Muhtorov, who was arrested in January 2012 on similar charges. According to the affidavit in support of the criminal complaint, Jumaev and Muhtorov pledged support for the IJU and Jumaev sent funds to Muhtorov specifically intended for the IJU. The IJU is an extremist organization that is responsible for a number of attacks and bombings, including attacks against coalition forces in Afghanistan. The IJU has been designated by the U.S. Secretary of State as a foreign terrorist organization.

This case was investigated by the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force, which is comprised of local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies in cities across the country, including the FBI’s JTTFs in Philadelphia and Denver. The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania assisted with this matter. The investigation was also aided by the Counterterrorism Section of the Justice Department’s National Security Division.

Jumaev and Muhtorov are being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Greg Holloway.

The charges in the complaint are allegations, and the defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

Attack Against Italian Synagogue Thwarted (bumped updated)

There are two people held in connection with a plot to bomb a synagogue in Milan:

Italian police say they have arrested a Moroccan man on suspicion of plotting an attack against a Milan synagogue.

explosivescoursecover.JPG

The LaPresse news agency says the 20-year-old was arrested Thursday morning in the Sardinian city of Cagliari.

Authorities also confiscated a computer they say contains plans for the attack, including details of the synagogue's security detail and potential access points.

The second person held was in the UK
LONDON (AP) -- British police say they've arrested a 40-year-old London woman possibly linked to an alleged plot against a Milan synagogue.

Scotland Yard said the woman was arrested in the early hours of Thursday morning on suspicion of collecting information useful to terrorism.

The common denominator, the internet. In this case Facebook
Anti-terrorism investigators identified the suspect - who has lived in Italy from age 6 - from Internet traffic including a Facebook page on how to assemble explosives.
Its worth noting that recently the Online Jihadi community has been passing around a document on explosives. Specifically a .pdf called The Explosives Course by Abu Khabbab al Misri. The document was translated to English by the online group called the Global Islamic Media Front(GIMF) with specializes in translating and distributing al-Qaeda propaganda online.

Update: The suspect arrested in Italy has been identified as one Mohamed Jarmoune.

article-2115431-122F1397000005DC-729_233x358.jpg
Police said Jarmoune had lived in Italy since he was six years old but he had 'come across their radar' as part of another investigation and when they began investigating his background discovered he had been looking at several Islamic extremist websites.

...He had detailed security measures for the synagogue and a pencil diagram appeared to show a series of four gas canisters connected to a battery, which was also linked to a mobile telephone, while other images showed the preparation of explosives.

Anti terror officers in Brescia also said that they had intercepted messages on various Islamic extremist websites and discussion boards, from Jarmoune in which he spoke of carrying out a 'jihad mission'.

Also found is his apartment besides the usual Islamic stuff was a bunch of Nazi stuff including flags and uniforms.

Jealous: Playboy Reads Dan Riehl "for the articles"

I've known Dan Riehl since a few weeks after I started this blog. But now he's hit the big time

PLAYBOY: Conservatives are as hard on you as liberals. Right-wing blogger Dan Riehl sniped that “this self-indulgent set of mega-breasts doesn’t belong anywhere near a TV studio commenting on anything.”

MCCAIN: Who says stuff like that? Some guys out there just can’t handle a woman with a strong opinion.

I imagine that Playboy is quoting Dan from that time he was at the mansion. But I thought what was said in the Grotto stayed in the Grotto?

"Allies": Pakistan Gives Life Sentence for Burning Koran

I'm for religious tolerance. I've argued over and over that Muslims have the right to build mosques wherever they want. I don't support burning Korans. I've never burned an actual Koran, although I've had some fun with photoshop at the expense of the intolerant who want to saddle me with their religious customs through compulsion.

But I might burn a Koran now. Because I can. Because I'm free. It's the principle of the thing:

A Pakistani court on Tuesday jailed a 42-year-old Muslim man for life for burning a Koran, officials said.

Naseem Ahmed, a father of three, was arrested last June on charges of desecrating Islam's holy book in Lasda village in Pakistani Kashmir, about 40 kilometres (25 miles) east of the regional capital Muzaffarabad.

No one is free in a country where blasphemy is outlawed. No one.

A fundamental human liberty is the right to criticize religion -- including the right to do things considered sacrilegious. People who are compelled by the force of law and threat of violence to respect religious icons and beliefs are by definition not free.

*I didn't actually burn this Koran. But I am having serious fantasies about it right now.

Al Qaeda Confirms Ilyas Kashmiri is Dead

“Pakistani Jihadi leaders like Ameer Baitullah Mehsud, Commander Ilyas Kashmiri, Commander Binyamin and Commander Badr Mansoor (may Allah have mercy upon them) are targeted in drone attacks and similarly the son of the respected Afghan leader Jalaluddin Haqqani”

FBI: Afghan Murders Could Incite Homegrown Terror

I know my original reaction was, "when do they ever need inciting"? But that kind of misses the point. They're always angry, but events such as what happened in Afghanistan might be the tipping point between angry and violent.

Seattle's King 5 News:

The FBI and Department of Homeland Security are warning that the massacre of 16 civilians in Afghanistan, allegedly at the hands of a soldier from Joint Base Lewis-McChord, could trigger extremists to retaliate here in the U.S....

The FBI and DHS said some websites circulated graphic pictures of Sunday's massacre and called for revenge against the U.S. military. The websites suggested that the military planned the killings and that there were more deaths than what was reported.

We've actually seen a number of incidents where already radicalized individuals felt they needed to take violent action in "revenge" for some alleged misdeed or another.

Sharia4Australia Founder Busted for Child Porn & Threats

Via Creeping Sharia comes this:

IBRAHIM Siddiq-Conlon, a Muslim convert who has argued for the imposition of sharia law in Australia, has been charged with making a hoax terrorist threat after he allegedly threatened to “wear some TNT” to Sydney’s Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.

sharia4aussies.JPG

Mr Siddiq-Conlon, who is behind the controversial organisation Sharia4Australia, has also been charged with child pornography offences after police allegedly found a number of illegal images on his home computer.

The western Sydney man yesterday declined to say if he was guilty of the pornography charges, which he admitted would attract “some minor punishment” under sharia law if he were found guilty.

“It might be a lashing, it might be jail, it might be a fine,” Mr Siddiq-Conlon said.

Swiss Hostages Escape Taliban

Awesome!

ISLAMABAD (AP) – A Swiss couple held captive by the Taliban in Pakistan since July turned up at an army post close to the Afghan border on Thursday and was flown to safety by the Pakistani military, an army spokesman said.

The Swiss man and woman, who were seized in July in the southwest of the country, were last seen in a militant video in October, saying their captors were threatening to kill them.

Maj. Gen. Athar Abbas said the couple showed up at an army post in Miran Shah in North Waziristan, an al-Qaida and Taliban stronghold. He said the couple was then flown to Peshawar, the main city in northwestern Pakistan, on an army helicopter.

Predictably the Taliban lied about the escape
"They say they escaped from the custody of militants," he said.

Two local Pakistani Taliban commanders said the couple had been freed, but only after an undisclosed ransom had been paid and some Taliban prisoners were released from Pakistani custody. They refused to give their names.

Yeah and I added up the Invader Casualty count on the Taliban's website the other day. Guess what, we're all dead already. Every last one of us.

Rambo: Traumatized Soldiers as Killers

One of the reasons I was so pissed at the soldier who murdered 16 Afghans earlier this week was that he conveniently gave leftists all the fuel they needed to their pre-established narrative about what "traumatized" vets are like.

Over at Blackfive, McQ brings it all home:

This is precisely what so many in the military and veteran’s community feared the reaction might be among some of the media.

It is a reminder of the “crazy Vietnam Vet” syndrome that infected the media during that era and afterward.

It's the vet as victim meme pushed by Hollywood since Vietnam.

They try to spin their coverage as concern for veterans, but it's not.

It's a simple cause --> effect relationship.

If war causes men into antisocial behavior, then the cure is to end war.

See, I told you it was all Bush's fault.

More Math Hurts Santorum's and Gingrich's Head
Why a Brokered Convention Will Pick Romney

Earlier today I was complaining about Gingrich's ego and Santorum's tiny little hands and in a comment someone mentioned something about if the current trend continued then Romney wouldn't be able to garner the "magic number" of 1144 delegates.

The point being, I think, that in a brokered convention Santorum or Gingrich could get the unpledged delegates to come over to their side and thus a path to victory for one of them.

Here's the problem with that: 463

Why is the number 463 significant? That's the number of unpledged delegates going to the convention this year. The problem with that path to victory is that these 463 "unpledged delegates" are generally elected officials and party activists. Of those 463, 340 are "soft pledges" and 123 of them are members of the RNC.

That is, most of these 463 "unpledged delegates" are actually pledged. Right now Romney has most of their votes. Of the rest, these are the same people who have been backing Romney from the get go. They are the establishment.

Of these 123 truly unpledged delegates (who are the equivalent of the DNC's "Superdelegates") 33 have already said they are supporting Mitt Romney.

Gingrich, Santorum, and Paul combined have only managed to garner support from 7 of them. That's not a trend which bodes well for Santorum or Gingrich in their now hoped for "brokered convention" scenario.

Now, if I have my political "narrative" right: Romney is the "establishment" candidate, and Santorum and Gingrich are the anti-establishment candidates.

Odd, I know, given that one is a twice elected US Senator and the other is the former Speaker of the House, but that's the narrative I'm hearing.

Why would the establishment jump ship and join ranks with the anti-establishment candidate(s)?

Especially if and when Romney has the most delegates? Even if Gingrich backs out, what's the argument from Santorum that the guy with less votes should be nominated over the guy with more votes?

Mathematically there is no path to victory for Gingrich. He's finished. He's now just a spoiler candidate.

And the pathway to victory for Santorum makes assumptions about which way unpledged delegates will go that just don't seem reasonable.

Unless Gingrich gets out NOW and throws all of his delegates behind Santorum, then there's really no way that either of them can win -- even in a brokered convention -- short of a dead hooker being found in the trunk of Romney's car.

Okay, so a brokered convention is more likely today than it was yesterday. But given that in a brokered convention Romney is still likely to win, then what's the point?

I know Santorum fans are putting their hope in the brokered convention scenario. But if I'm right then the only person that benefits is Obama, not Santorum.

Moroccan Girl Commits Suicide After Being Forced To Marry Rapist

It is unfortunately a common practice under Islamic law. Perpetrators of some sexual perversions and crimes can avoid punishment by marrying or taking on the responsibility of caring (i.e. providing food and shelter) for the victim. This, of course, only serves to further traumatize the victim who must live as a servant for the perpetrator's family.

from al Arabiya News:

A 16-year-old Moroccan girl has committed suicide after a judge ordered her to marry her rapist, according to Moroccan media reports.

Last year Amina’s parents filed charges against their daughter’s rapist, a man 10 years older than her but it was only recently that a judge in the northern city of Tangier decided that instead of punishing him, the two must be married.

The court’s decision to forcibly marry Amina to her rapist was supposed to “resolve” the damage of sexual violation against her, but it led to more suffering in the unwelcoming home of her rapist/husband’s family.

Traumatized by the painful experience of rape, Amina decided to end her life by consuming rat poison in the house of her husband’s family, according to the Moroccan daily al-Massae.

The problem is, Islamic Law focuses on the "shame" of the victim and her family rather than the rapist. This "shame" can only be removed by having the victim marry the rapist or simply killing her. In this sad case, the victim was forced to decide her own fate. She chose death.

Florida: Lake County Democratic Party Flag Flap:
I Pledge Allegiance to Obamas Face?..
UPDATED

obama_florida_flag.jpg
Image credit: FNC's main site

I guess they forgot to read the federal flag code, or, would like to change it with this display...Alinsky's Rules for Radicals come to mind.

“We’re proud of our president and we didn’t realize it was in violation"

A Florida Democratic Party outpost has taken down an American flag depicting an image of President Obama after a group of veterans complained that the flag had been desecrated.

The flag was flying underneath an American flag outside the Lake County Democratic Party headquarters. Instead of stars, the blue field featured an image of President Obama’s face.

obamaflag_2.jpg

That infuriated local veterans like Jim Bradford, the office manager at the Veterans Memorial at Fountain Park in nearby Leesburg.

“I couldn’t believe that anybody in their right mind would desecrate the American flag that way,” he told Fox News. “It was disrespectful.”

It’s a cult of personality to show his face, like Stalin or Mao,” said former Marine John Masterjohn in an interview with the Orlando Sentinel. “It’s despicable. They don’t realize how sick they are.”

I wonder how many other dem party headquarters are flying that flag?

UPDATE: Via another article at FNC regarding this, it gets worse...

...Bradford, an organizer with the Veterans Memorial at Fountain Park in Leesburg, Fla., snapped photos of the flag and distributed them to fellow veterans and friends. By late afternoon, he and several other veterans delivered a copy of the federal flag code to Nancy Hurlbert, chairwoman of the Lake County Democratic Party.

"We read that to her, but she would not accept that," Bradford said. "The discussion finally got a little bit heated."

The flag, which had been flying for several months without complaint and is available online for $12.95, was later removed by Hurlbert.

Bradford said Hurlbert apologized for the incident, but did not offer any promises that it wouldn't fly again.

"What really upsets me is that the flag had apparently been flying for months and no one had done anything about it," Bradford said. "I've got no hard feelings toward [Hurlbert], but people will be driving by there to make sure it doesn't go up again."

Hurlbert said Tuesday's incident was the first time anyone had complained about the flag, which she received as a gift two months ago.

"It leads me to believe that it's not about the flag," she told FoxNews.com. "Certain elements cannot accept Barack Obama as president."

Hurlbert said she intends to contact an attorney regarding the matter and remained non-committal as to whether she'll fly the flag again.

There you have it folks, Critical Race Theory at work here

Obama's Gift To Cameron: Wood Burning Grill

What, no algea fuel?

grill_steaks.jpg

For cooking up those healthy fat steaks. Maybe Biden will throw in a case of the $5,000 ones the middle class seems to enjoy...

On the occasion of the Official Visit, The President and Mrs. Obama gave the Prime Minister and Mrs. Cameron a one-of-a-kind Braten 1000 Series Grill hand made by Engelbrecht Grills and Cookers of Paxton, Illinois. Symbolizing the personal friendship between the President and Mrs. Obama and Prime Minister and Mrs. Cameron, the gift commemorates their May 2011 visit to 10 Downing Street where together they grilled and served food to American and British Armed Service Members. (Source)

Its actually a pretty nice gift, if you ask me. It's American made, grilling is an American past time, and it commemorates a service for our Troops. I'm actually impressed with the thought that went into the gift.

And I'd much rather have this grill than an iPod filled with Obama speeches.

POLLAK: Firing at Breitbart when he can’t fire back

Via WashingtonTimes

Andrew Breitbart would not have been surprised by the out- pouring of liberal hate after his death. He would have reveled in it, relished it, retweeted it. He enjoyed watching the left unmask itself, revealing pretensions at “civility” to be nothing more than bullying. He would have laughed to see Rolling Stone quietly pulling its ads off the page where Matt Taibbi - a drug-abusing misogynist, Andrew would have noted - had done his worst.

Nor would Andrew have been surprised at the outpouring of admiration from those on the left who truly understood him. Donna Brazile, for one,declared: “Andrew Breitbart was a conservative political combatant who was unafraid of his critics. We battled on and off air, but he was a genius.” More than a few Democrats know that unlike many in politics today - on both sides - Andrew stood for more voices, more debate, not less.

Andrew also cared - deeply - about truth. And he would have been disappointed - though not surprised - to see some of the most untruthful things about his life being said by those who call themselves fellow conservatives, those sophists who exploited Andrew’s death in the ceaseless effort to portray themselves as the urbane alternative to the great unwashed Tea Party masses in the dark interior of the Republican Party.

I can't do Mr Pollak's article justice with a few excerpts, so please be sure to put this on your must read today list.

Newt's Ego and Santorum's Tiny Hands

The real news last night? Mitt Romney extended his lead over Santorum and Gingrich:

DELEGATES WON
41 Romney
35 Santorum
24 Gingrich
1 Paul
So, after last night's big "win" for Santorum, Romney extended his lead over Santorum by six delegates.

I know math hurts Barbie's, Newt's, and Satorum's head, but the truth of the matter is that neither Santorum nor Newt are any closer to getting the nomination today then they were yesterday.

The only person that inched closer was Romney.

I know some of you think I'm in the bag for Romney, I'm not. In an ideal world I'd love a Gingrich Presidency. But I've explained my reasons why I don't think Gingrich can win here and here.

Gingrich just isn't as viable candidate as Romney. And after his post-victory comments last night, I've decided that I was 100% correct in my assessment about his ego.

Gingrich may be the only candidate who's ego could challenge that of Barrack Obama.

But if the choice came down to Gingrich or Santorum, and if the sole variable I was asked to chose on was "electability", I'd go with Gingrich.

Santorum is by far the weakest candidate. Why?

First, here's a guy who lost as a sitting incumbent -- by 16 points!

He complains about Romney's money advantage, but in 2006 he vastly outspent his opponent -- and still lost.

The people who know Santorum the best, his constituents, don't like him.

The only reason Santorum polls so well against Obama is that most people don't know him. Of the three major candidates he's the least well known.

Romney is a known factor because he's been running for President for four years now. In addition, he's the front runner so he's garnered more attention than all the other candidates.

Gingrich is known because he was Speaker of the House.

Santorum? Outside a very narrow national constituency of pro-life activists, he's a mystery to most. Ambiguity is a good thing for candidates as it allows people to project their own attitudes on the politician.

But it won't last. As Santorum solidifies his claim that he's the only legitimate challenger to Romney, people will begin to get to know him.

And if he wins the nomination, do not think the MSM will allow him to remain out of the spotlight as they did with Obama. Santorum will be vetted. And when he is, many are not going to like what they see.

Especially his hands. I've been complaining about them for awhile. Something I couldn't place my finger on. He seems kind of wierd when he moves his arms and his hands. Like a robot.

But last night I had an epiphany about why he seemed so weird whenever his hands came into focus. It's not just the robotic way he moves them. They're tiny. At least, compared to his head.

Superficial? Yeah. But, again, this election won't be won or lost on the issues. It will be won or lost on some very superficial things.

And Santorum's hands are a problem. Those and the sweater vests.

I just wanted to throw that out there. Also know that I don't think Santorum's tiny hands are his biggest problem. His biggest problem is that he doesn't know when to shut his mouth.

You think Rick Perry's gaffes were big, just wait until you get a load of Santorum's. You aint seen nothing yet. Only, Rick Perry's gaffes were gaffes. That is, momentary slips of the tongue. Not Santorum.

Ask Santorum about birth control and he'll go on a five minute tirade about the culture war and the attack on the traditional family. He's a guy who just doesn't know when to shut up about issues he cares about. And his commitment to Catholic orthodxy is something he just can't avoid talking about.

Gingrich is equally wedded to Catholic orthodoxy, but at least he knows how to discuss the issue without seeming a little bit off kilter. He does so in terms familiar to a secular society, terms which the rest of us can understand. Gingrich's flaws lay elsewhere.

The gist of this post is that for the first time in months I'm beginning to worry about the election. I think Republicans have a good shot this year. I think there best shot among the remaining three candidates (sorry Paul fans) is with Romney. I think Romney is not nearly as "moderate" as many of you think, especially on fiscal matters -- which is the most important issue in the race.

Gingrich? He has a shot, but the crystal ball says that could only happen with some combination of a bad economy, increased inflation, or a doubling or tripling of the number of debates with Obama.

But Santorum? Sure, he could win. But the general election will not come down to who opposed Obamacare most consistently in the past. Outside of those variables which cannot be controlled by any candidate (like the economy), it will come down to a lot of superficial things that no one likes to talk about. Like what a candidate looks like.

Like if his hands look like they're tiny.

Yeah, it's stupid. Welcome to America in 2012.

Gettysburg store pulls bobblehead dolls of President Lincoln assassin John Wilkes Booth

lincoln_booth.jpg

Classy, gawd.

Via NYDaily

GETTYSBURG, Pa. - Bobblehead dolls of the man who assassinated President Abraham Lincoln have been pulled from sale at the Gettysburg National Military Park visitors' center bookstore.

The dolls of John Wilkes Booth with a handgun were removed from shelves on Saturday, a day after a reporter for Hanover's The Evening Sun newspaper asked about them, officials said.

"On rare occasions, there's an item that might cause concern, and obviously the bobbleheads appeared to be doing that," Gettysburg Foundation spokeswoman Dru Anne Neil said Tuesday.

The Booth dolls, featuring big heads attached to the bodies by springs so they bobble, were available for only about a week before the park superintendent, the foundation president and the bookstore manager decided they shouldn't be for sale, Neil said.[More..]

I'm all for someone trying to make a buck, but this?

Photo: "Let Sleeping Dogs Lie"...

This photo is one of two from the Marines Facebook photo of the month competition:

Let Sleeping Dogs Lie
Let Sleeping Dogs Lie

You voted, and this week's Top Corps Shot comes from Cpl. Reece Lodder. Lodder shot this photo following a squad patrol to clear houses of insurgent activity as part of Operation Tageer Shamal in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. After five hours, the squad stopped to rest in an abandoned compound. All of the Marines and Afghan soldiers were exhausted, as were the IED detection dogs, so this trio decided to catch a quick nap. Even though he was tired, Lodder grabbed his camera and captured the moment. “I liked that the Redskins blanket was in the photo because it was an unusual slice of reality back home in the midst of a long operation and a drab desert. I think our fans like this photo because it’s an unusual, interesting image that visually, physically and emotionally gets to the core of what the Marines and the dog were feeling at this moment in time. It helps them feel, even if only in a small way, what we felt.”

Over the past five years, coalition forces have operated with Afghan National Security Forces to defeat the insurgency in the central Helmand River valley. Driven from the green zones, or populated areas, of districts in southern Helmand, enemy fighters have sought refuge in bed-down locations west of the Helmand River. This area on the outskirts of Garmsir district has been, until now, nearly untouched by the partnered forces and the Afghan government. During the operation, Jan. 4-8, Afghan forces and Marines with 3/3 cleared the area of insurgent activity, weapons and improvised explosive device-making materials, and held shuras to address the concerns of local elders.

Journalist Working for Iran Linked to Israeli Assassination Plot

Color me shocked -- SHOCKED -- that a journalist working for Iran's official propaganda outlet is tied to the plot to kill Israeli diplomats:

Syed Mohammad Ahmed Kazmi the Delhi-based freelance journalist who worked for Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) and also as a contractual news reader with Doordarshan’s Urdu News has been found to be involved in the conspiracy that was hatched to attack the Israeli woman diplomat in New Delhi.

His role was revealed after the Thailand Police searched the room rented by one Iranian woman Rohani Leila in Bangkok after the failed attack that had coincided with the attack on Tal Yehoshua-Koren on Aurangzeb Road on February 13.

Investigators had found Kazmi’s phone number from the house. Call records proved that Kazmi was in regular touch with the module that threw a bomb at the car of Israeli Embassy. Leila was part of the module that had tried to attack Israeli diplomats in Bangkok. Leila had fled Bangkok on February 5. Investigators say Kazmi was the main facilitator of the attack as he provided logistics to the bomber and helped in surveying the target in the Indian Capital.

Science! Liberals Less Tolerant!

Investors Business Daily

Not exactly shocking news for those exposed to them for years, but the respected Pew Research Center has determined that political liberals are far less tolerant of opposing views than regular Americans.

The new research found that instead of engaging in civil discourse or debate, fully 16% of liberals admitted to blocking, unfriending or overtly hiding someone on a social networking site because that person expressed views they disagreed with. That's double the percentage of conservatives and more than twice the percentage of political moderates who behaved like that.

The proportion jumps even higher when someone on a social site disagrees with a liberal's post.

“These guys don’t have a sense of the average folks out there,” he said. “They don’t know what it means to be middle class.”

Researchers found that people who took propranolol scored significantly lower on a standard test used to detect subconscious racial attitudes, than those who took a placebo. [...]

It is thought to work by blocking activation of the peripheral 'autonomic' nervous system, and in areas of the brain involved with formulating emotional responses, including fear, called the amygdalae.

The pill was also found to improve driving abilities among women, make white people better at basketball, and non-Asians noticed an improvement in math skills.

Muslim Journalist: Mosques Not Off Limits to Investigate

Meet Asra Nomani. She's a Muslim journalist who learned about radical Islamism the hard way. She was working with Daniel Pearl when he was kidnapped and then brutally murdered by al Qaeda. She's the coordinator of the Pearl Project at Georgetown University.

Now she's speaking out against CAIR's campaign to label all investigations of Muslim groups, mosques, and organizations as "Islamophobia":

“We're saying that you can't go into our mosques, you can't look at our Muslim organizations, you can't even look at Muslims because that's to target us," she told Fox News during an interview in suburban Washington. "But the truth is, we do have a problem in our Muslim community.” ....

“I think that there is a movement in America right now to claim this concept of Islamophobia, to say that people are hating on Islam," she said. "Let's be honest, there are people that do hate on Islam. But I think that (Police Commissioner) Ray Kelly and the New York Police Department have been targeted in this larger campaign to try to show that people are picking on Muslims.”...

She goes on to say how in Muslim countries, like Pakistan, mosques and religious organizations aren't consider off-limits for police investigations. Why should they be here?

She's making the point that I've been hammering on for the last year: there is a concerted effort by CAIR to claim that the reason so many Muslims have been arrested for terror related crimes is that they are victims of an Islamophobic system.

The MSM, of course, plays right along. They love a good story about the man victimizing yet another minority group.

These are the same people that don't get why critical race theory is controversial.

Muslim Journalist Defends Surveillance By NYPD, Says Some Muslims Use "Religion As A Cover"...

The savage beheading of fellow journalist, Daniel Pearl, "was a turning point" for journalist Asra Nomani

The New York Police Department has faced criticism for its surveillance of the Muslim community, but one prominent Muslim journalist defended the department in an interview with Fox News.

“We use religion as a cover,” said Asra Nomani, a 46-year-old journalist whose work has been published by the Wall Street Journal and The Daily Beast. Nomani, a native of India, says radical ideology is very real -- and damaging to all Muslims.

“We're saying that you can't go into our mosques, you can't look at our Muslim organizations, you can't even look at Muslims because that's to target us," she told Fox News during an interview in suburban Washington. "But the truth is, we do have a problem in our Muslim community.”[...]

Nomani worked with Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, who was kidnapped and his throat slit by Islamic radicals in Pakistan in February 2002. Pearl’s death was a personal turning point for Nomani in her thinking on religion.

“They did their prayer on the blood-soaked floor of the room where he was murdered. And so, that was when I knew that we needed to challenge how it is that people of supposed faith use religion to sanction their violence," she said.[More...]

And yes, she has received death threats.

Documentary 2009: The Mosque in Morgantown[official trailer below fold]

When Muslim writer and activist Asra Nomani returns to her hometown mosque in West Virginia, she believes she sees signs of trouble: exclusion of women, intolerance toward non-believers, suspicion of the West. Her resulting campaign for change alienates would-be allies in the mosque, leading many to wonder who most deserves the label of “extremist.” It isn’t long before members put forward a petition to expel her from the Islamic Center of Morgantown.

As Asra takes an increasingly different path from the community’s moderates – marching on the mosque, posting a manifesto on its door, storming out of a community meeting and challenging a visiting sheik about domestic violence – the film provides a rare look at the real controversies that divide a Muslim community.

Project Veritas: "Caught on Tape: Dead People and Clones Offered Ballots in Vermont Primary"..

I wonder if Mr O'Keefe will, again, be attacked by the MFM?

In the video, the agent repeatedly requests (but does not take) a Republican primary ballot. As he explained to Breitbart.com: "We wanted to remind viewers this is not a partisan issue. This is a situation wherein anyone -- Republican or Democrat -- can exploit the system."

The new video follows in the wake of a highly-politicized media attack on Mr. O’Keefe after his exposure of voter fraud in New Hampshire. Those videos resulted in calls from the left for O’Keefe’s arrest. However, the videos soon resulted in the New Hampshire State Senate passing a new bill requiring voter ID.

O'Keefe's new video from Vermont could not be more timely, coming the day after the U.S. Department of Justice's civil rights division blocked a Texas photo ID requirement for voters--to the applause of the American Civil Liberties Union, which claimed that the law was “discriminatory” against “Latinos, African-Americans, elderly citizens, and others.”

This video may make it a bit hard for the left & MFM to attack Mr O'Keefe. You'll see why:

Mr O'Keefe knows how the left and MFM work, so he provided a link to the full un-edited video, which is even more damning...ha!

On Super Tuesday in Vermont, Poll workers caught on tape handing out Ballots in names of dead people and giving out ballots in living people's names to anyone who walked in. Bars, hotels and city clerk issuing civil union all required ID.

They handed the ballots out to people under the following names:

Adam Berger
Cooper Fellows
Roger Audette DEAD
John E. Adams

Belgian Salafi Muslim Firebombs Shia Mosque Murders Imam

I saw this story breaking last night.

The Sun: RUSSELS (March 13, 2012): An axe-wielding arsonist burst into a Shiite Belgian mosque Monday, killing the imam and destroying much of the building in an attack local Muslims tipped as the work of Sunni extremists.

Police said the man, detained after mosque personnel trapped him inside the building, apparently used fuel to set fire to the Rida mosque near Brussels' international rail hub, killing 46-year-old father-of-four Abdallah Dadou.

The victim, who died of smoke inhalation, was described by worshipper Abdel Adouzeyneb, a 39-year-old real estate agent, as "a person who was loved by everybody -- he was open, well integrated, smiling and happy."

A second person who was with the victim at the time of the attack was lightly injured.

Police were unable to immediately name the suspect as he lacked identity papers, but authorities said the man described himself as a Muslim born in 1978. Authorities are investigating his motives and whether he had accomplices.

Azzedine Laghmich, an official at the mosque, told AFP the attacker was "a Salafist," who sprayed petrol inside the mosque before setting it alight and shouting Sunni slogans on his way out -- cries related to the conflict in Syria.

"All the eyewitness accounts said so," Laghmich added.

There is an active Salafi community in Belgium. The most famous of which is an Ansar al-Mujahideen forum member and well known online Jihadi called Censored31.

He is a member of the Sharia4(insert place here) crowd. Several members have been arrested for terror related activity Their spokesman Fouad Belkacem was recently convicted along with a another member for violating Belgian hate statues instituted after WWII that were designed to prevent Nazism and persecution of Jews.

You can find more information on our long standing feud with Sharia4Belgium and Censored31 here, here and here.

After the last convictions of members of the group, Censored31's blog was removed and he moved to the Google blogging platform here.

His last post was a graphic Youtube video showing an alleged massacre of Children by the Syrian regime. Inciting hatred with lots of gratuitous graphic images of dead babies is a frequent theme of Censored31's blog.

What bothers me most is that since the attack his blog and twitter feed have not been updated. I would have expected a post praising the attack, or at least some comment.

We will update when we know more about the perpetrator.

Update: They are having trouble identifying the attacker who keeps lying to them about his name and age. Which probably excludes our blogger friend of the act if not the inspiration. He would be known to Belgian authorities.


In other Belgian news, someone drove into a crowd of Police guarding a meeting King Albert and Qatar's ambassador to Belgium. Word is he "wanted to commit suicide. Nothing to see here, move along, move along.

Update: Censored31 showed up with his glowing praise of both attacks. He clears up that both attacks were by Muslims.

"Bismillah. The Muslim who broke Tuesday morning 8 police motorcyclists before the castle of Laeken was known to the manmade court, but was never convicted. He is a man of Algerian nationality aged 39.
Eight federal police motorcyclists who escorted the Taghoet Ambassador of Qatar and major ally of the West were struck Tuesday morning before the royal palace of King Albert Saksen-Coburg-Saalfeld. Three of them were seriously injured but their lives were no longer in danger on Tuesday evening,
The other Muslim arrested Monday in connection with the attack against the Shiite mosque in Anderlecht "Rida", performed his act in order to frighten the Shiite community present in Belgium. He believes the Shiite community is co-responsible for the genocide in Syria which began one year ago, he said during his hearing.
The Muslim claimed to be Moroccan residing "illegally" in Belgium, but refused to declare his real identity. He said he acted alone and decided this a couple of weeks ago. This proves that mulitculti failed once again in a system called democracy which oppresses the minority on every level (socio-economic, political, media, housing and legal. It might become a hot summer with the upcoming manmade elections and Allah knows best." Censored31 said.
If you have a relative or loved one killed or injured because of Censored31's incitement to murder. Sue Google. They have repeatedly ignored our pleas to remove Censored31's terrorist advocating blog.

And also he claims that Belgian authorities detained him Today Tuesday, but he was later released.

Death Penalty for Mass Murdering Soldier

Our guy in Afghanistan who murdered more than a dozen? I think he should get the death penalty.

Quickly. Publicly.

I'm not sure where we are in Afghanistan at the moment. I don't know if there still is a chance of pulling anything like a victory out of the hat.

But my gut tells me that this evil fool's actions just killed any last vestige of hope.

Let's face it, there are enough Afghanis who are just ignorant enough not to be able to differentiate between mass murders by the Taliban -- which are rewarded and celebrated -- and this man's mass murder, condemned by all.

If there is some remaining hope -- and I see less and less of it every day -- then this guy needs to be not only publicly condemned, but publicly executed. After a fair and speedy trial, of course.

If he is to receive the normal US style "fair trial" -- even under the UCMJ -- consisting of a year or more before an actual trial, and then several years of appeals, then I'm afraid that that's all she wrote. By the time justice is served this thing will have been long lost.

The liberal narrative is already beginning, the defense's case helped by six years of propaganda about military vets.

It wasn't his fault. He was injured in Iraq. A brain injury. He couldn't help it. It was Bush's fault!

So please powers that be, give this guy the kind of justice we all long for. Swift, and true. If not because it's the right thing to do, because it's the expedient thing to do.

If you don't, then it's time to pack up and come home.

That man may not have just murdered a score of innocent Afghans. He also may have murdered our chances of victory in the country that harbored those behind the 9/11 atrocities.

Yemen: AQAP hides hostages in US CT liaison's warehouse

Seriously, if you are looking for AQAP hostages in Yemen, its always a good idea to start with the land owned by deposed dictator Ali Saleh & his relatives including the US's Counter Terror liaison, Yahya Saleh, nephew of Ali, and specifically the al Maz warehouse in Jaar, Abyan:

Yemen Times: Dozens of soldiers are held inside the Al-Maz Company, owned by Yahya Saleh, nephew of former president Ali Abdullah Saleh. The soldiers were captured during armed confrontations in Dofas on March 4.

Sources close to Ansar Al-Sharia stated that no soldiers were wounded or killed during the recent (ed- US drone) raids.

The militants have demanded that 300 Al-Qaeda militants be released in return for the release of 72 captured soldiers.

With multiple news sites reporting, its likely true. Since the drones didn't hit the warehouse, the US probably also knows it as well. Collusion between al Qaeda and the top levels of the Saleh regime goes back decades and is undeniable.

The mystery is why the Obama administration is pushing, bullying and threatening the Yemeni opposition in order to keep Saleh's relatives as heads of the CT units and in other military and security posts.

There were public protests Friday across Yemen demanding Saleh's relatives be deposed from the military and security forces. Air Force pilots have been protesting for weeks to replace Saleh's corrupt brother as AF commander. The US ambassador told them to go back to work, repeatedly.

US Ambassador Feierstein also affirmed repeatedly that the Obama administration believes former dictator Ali Saleh has the right to remain in Yemen active in politics. Saleh was granted immunity for all his crimes as part of the US, UN transition plan. None of "his" assets have been frozen, although they are all ill gotten--stolen, embezzled or the result of black market smuggling.

US aid to Yemen was $326M since 2007. Yet the Yemeni military is still poorly trained and ill equipped as the recent AQ mutilation and slaughter of 150 soldiers demonstrates.

Meanwhile Saleh's son and head of another CT unit, Ahmed Saleh, has a $5M condo in DC. That's your taxpayer dollars right there people.

US officials highlight the very real and growing threat of AQAP. Yet contrary to national security concerns, the Obama admin is continuing its efforts to maintain and restore the Saleh regime, which has a long history of colluding with al Qaeda and diverting CT aid.

In 2007, an end use monitoring agreement was signed by the US and Yemen to prevent diversion of US CT funds and military equipment. A 2010 report by the Foreign Relations committee revealed many lapses in US monitoring, ie- missing equipment, US trained CT forces fighting the Houthis and not al Qaeda. The responsible US officials made few if any reforms as a result of the report, and the CT forces were involved in slaughtering hundreds of Yemeni protesters in 2011.

Update:

Yemen Post: An investigation commission found that the former commander of Southern Region Mahdi Maqwala was involved in supporting Al-Qaeda militants, an Emirate newspaper, Al-Bayan, has quoted Yemeni military sources as saying.

The sources told Al-Bayan on Sunday that Maqwala supported the militants with weapons and helped them to capture military positions in the southern governorate of Abyan....Yemeni politicians (ed- with formal statements) and analysts accused the ousted Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh of using Al-Qaeda to intimidate some Western countries with the aim of keeping his relatives in their military positions.

Governor of Abyan Saleh Al-Zawari has accused military and political services of surrendering Abyan to Al-Qaeda.

In remarks to a local Aden radio, the governor also revealed that tanks, cannons and other military equipments were surrendered to Al-Qaeda militants without any resistance, pointing out that those behaviors were clear evidence of the collusion of some military services with Al-Qaeda.

Someone Set Us Up The Bomb

IDF Blog

Two photos tweeted in the past 24 hours, both allegedly depicting the results of Israeli air strikes in Gaza in recent days, have been proven false.

1. The photo first tweeted by Khulood Badawi (@KhuloodBadawi) and later by Diana Alzeer (@ManaraRam), allegedly depicting a Palestinian girl killed by an Israeli air strike yesterday, was proven to have originated in 2006 and to have had nothing at all to do with Israeli action. This photo is now the top tweet for #Gaza, with over 300 retweets. It is completely false.

Badawi first tweeted the picture at noon on March 10, claiming it was linked to last night’s air strikes. Alzeer tweeted it on March 11, claiming the same.

Both were refuted by tweeter Avi Mayer (@avimayer), who found that the photo dated back to 2009 at least.

Further research revealed that the photo was taken in 2006 by Reuters, and that the girl, initially thought to have been killed in an Israeli air strike, was injured by falling off a swing. When confronted with this information, Alzeer stated that the photo was taken last night and forwarded to the press that day.

UPDATE by SH: I followed this on twitter and naturally joined in to disprove the lie:

10 Killed in Suicide Bombing Against Black Church

Jihad Watch:

A suicide car bomber attacked a Catholic church Sunday in the middle of Mass, killing at least 10 people in the latest violence targeting a church in a central Nigerian city plagued by unrest, a state official said. The bomb detonated as worshippers attended the final Mass of the day at St. Finbar's Catholic Church in Jos, a city where thousands have died in the last decade in religious and ethnic violence. Security at the gate of the church's compound stopped the suspicious car and the bomber detonated his explosives during an altercation that followed, Plateau state spokesman Pam Ayuba said.

The blast damaged the church's roof, blew out its windows and destroyed a portion of the fence surrounding the church's compound, Ayuba said. At least 10 people died, Ayuba said, while many others were wounded in the blast, including soldiers who also had been stationed at the church.

Christian Exodus from North Sudan

At the point of a gun:

Sudanese Christians who have barely a month to leave the north or risk being treated as foreigners are starting to move, but Christian leaders are concerned that the 8 April deadline set by Islamic-majority Sudan is unrealistic.

“We are very concerned. Moving is not easy. . . people have children in school. They have homes. . . It is almost impossible,” Roman Catholic Bishop Daniel Adwok, the Khartoum archdiocese auxiliary told ENInews in a telephone interview on 7 March.

Sudan in February announced the deadline for the former citizens it had stripped of nationality after South Sudan’s January 2011 vote to secede. The ultimatum will affect an estimated 500,000–700,000 people, who are mainly Christians of southern origin that still live in the north.

New Iraqi Government Complicit In Emo/Gay Teen Massacre?

iraq_warning_emos_gays2.jpg
(List of targeted teens. The warning at the top reads: "In the name of Allah. We strongly warn you, every licentious man or woman: if you didn’t stop this dirty behavior in four days then the punishment of Allah will be accomplished by the hands of Almojahdeen.")

The list was posted on March 8th in several neighborhoods. It warns that those named, and others who dress in similar 'emo' styles, have four days to alter behavior, leave the area, or face the consequences. That means tomorrow, March 12th, may see new bloodshed against innocent young people in Iraq.

From GME.com:

The Iraqi Interior Ministry knew about the plan to massacre ‘emo’ youths and LGBT people and are complicit in up to 100 killings, new evidence suggests.

GME can exclusively reveal that Iraqi officials had a list of people who were scheduled for slaughter but did nothing to protect them.

And a new list has been posted, posted on Palestine Street. It was put up three days ago and warns men and women in universities and colleges to stop behaving and dressing ‘immorally’ within four days. This means that a new wave of massacres may occur as early as tomorrow or Monday (12.3.12).

As GME reported yesterday, the kidnappings, torture and murders started on 6 February and have targeted those with alternative dress codes or have differing sexualities.

Not only was the Iraqi Government aware of the list, but they may have compiled a list of their own as a part of the investigation into the 'emo phenomenon'. It is not clear if the government's list contained the same names as the list posted around the neighborhoods.

Soldier Goes Off in Afghanistan (Bumped Updated)

WSJ:

KABUL—A U.S. serviceman walked off his base in southern Afghanistan and opened fire on local civilians early Sunday morning, killing at least 16 people and wounding several more, according to Afghan officials.

The serviceman, who went on the shooting spree in a village about a mile away from the U.S. base in the Panjway district of Kandahar province, has since been taken into custody by U.S.-led coalition forces.

There are few details at this time. It appears he had some folks in mind when he went AWOL. He later turned himself in.

Reading more info from Michael Yon.

There is already a lot of talk of Afghan Retribution of this this admittedly horrible incident. But let's be frank. This soldier is in custody and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. As well he should be. He knew when he turned himself in he was going either to a firing squad or life in prison.

Our enemy celebrates this sort of thing.

But it points out a lot of about Afghanistan. Our failure there is that we've not been willing to win. But admittedly the best you could really hope for in Afghanistan was to send a message to the Taliban and al-Qaeda, Maybe to have a base or two from which to keep them busy. And GTFO if you can.

That doesn't even mention the brilliant strategy of giving Pakistan money to kill us there.

I think Rusty said the other day something like, "But trying to paint one side as barbarians and the other side as doing the Lord's own work just doesn't apply when it comes to any conflict in the Middle East." The Afghans are same same, No?

10 Years slogging along there pretending that "Afghanistan can win." is hard on soldiers. But I don't think we should do as Michael Yon says and " pull out our main battle force."

No not quite. We should prosecute this man. But those who might show up to take arms against us are no friends of ours for the most part. They are enemies of the United States. Doesn't really matter how they got that way? We should protect our forces by reinforcing our "main battle force" and take some time to let the enemies of the United States die in lawful warfare.

Then I'm all for whatever. If you're saying lower our footprint in Afghanistan to a more strategic level because Afghanistan is a hopeless sh*thole. Well then by all means. But don't lose you head man!

Until we make that call, we need follow the course. Prosecute this soldier for his crimes. Support our troops in the field and fight the enemies of the United States to the best of our ability. And we need to state firmly that we intend to do so.

More at Long War Journal.

UPDATE by SH: ISAF Commander Statement:

ISAF Commander Statement on Civilian Casualties in Kandahar

NEWS RELEASE

2012-03-CA-006

WASHINGTON (March 11, 2012) - The Commander of the International Security Assistance Force, Gen. John R. Allen, released the following statement today:

"I was shocked and saddened to hear of the shooting incident today in Kandahar Province. I offer my profound regret and deepest condolences to the victims and their families. I pledge to all the noble people of Afghanistan my commitment to a rapid and thorough investigation.

In the meantime, we will continue to offer medical care for those who were injured in this shooting. We will maintain custody of the U.S. service member alleged to have perpetrated this attack. And we will cooperate fully with local Afghan authorities as we ascertain all the facts.

This deeply appalling incident in no way represents the values of ISAF and coalition troops or the abiding respect we feel for the Afghan people. Nor does it impugn or diminish the spirit of cooperation and partnership we have worked so hard to foster with the Afghan National Security Forces.

The men and women of ISAF join me in my sadness and they join me in extending their condolences.

I am absolutely dedicated to making sure that anyone who is found to have committed wrong-doing is held fully accountable."

Oh, Al Reuters appears to want to add a little salt to the wound Western Forces kill 16 civilians
(Reuters) - Western forces shot dead 16 civilians including nine children in southern Kandahar province on Sunday, Afghan officials said, in a rampage that witnesses said was carried out by American soldiers who were laughing and appeared drunk.

One Afghan father who said his children were killed in the shooting spree accused soldiers of later burning the bodies.

Witnesses told Reuters they saw a group of U.S. soldiers arrive at their village in Kandahar's Panjwayi district at around 2 am, enter homes and open fire.

From 1 soldier to a group!

HAMAS Requests Timeout To Re-Supply

Sadly, Israel will probably be politically pressured into giving it to them.

After more than 100 rockets were fired from Gaza into southern Israel over the weekend, the coastal enclave’s terrorist rulers are seeking a ceasefire.

Al-Nunu said Hamas is awaiting Israel’s response to the request for a ceasefire, which will be delivered through Egypt. Al-Nunu said that if Israel stops attacking in Gaza, Hamas would be willing to discuss putting an end to the rocket fire. (Source)

Arab Spring! Hundreds of Muslimas Call For Their Own Oppression in Tunisia

Yahoo:

Hundreds of Muslim women gathered near Tunis Saturday to call for the return of the caliphate, the defunct Islamic system of governance which they said was the only means of guaranteeing their rights.

The members of the Hizb ut-Tahrir party came from Islamic countries including Arab states, Indonesia and Turkey, as well as from Europe to debate the benefits of the system that disappeared nearly 90 years ago.

"This conference raises questions about the secular liberal way of life and asks whether it is a system that has succeed in securing the dignity and rights of women," chief spokeswoman Nasrin Nawaaz of the British branch of the party told AFP.

"Muslim women are gathering together saying that we no longer want to live under secular liberal democratic systems," she added.

"We want a new system, we want the khalifa system that historically has been tried and has succeeded in securing the rights of women."

Suicide Bomber Kills 14 at Funeral in Pakistan

CNN:

A suicide bomber targeted a funeral in northwest Pakistan on Sunday, killing at least 14 people and wounding 37 others, officials said.

The blast took place just outside Peshawar, the capital of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, said city police official Kalam Khan.

While no one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, authorities believe the target may have been members of the Awami National Party.
Khushdil Khan, a party member who is the deputy speaker of the provincial assembly, had gone to the funeral for a local woman. But he left before the suicide bomber walked up to mourners and blew himself up as they were leaving, police said.

The Awami National Party, which is part of the governing coalition led by Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani's Pakistan Peoples Party, is often targeted by the Taliban.

In February, an explosion outside a political rally in northwest Pakistan killed five people and wounded 10, officials said.

The Tehrik-e-Taliban, or Pakistani Taliban, claimed responsibility for the blast.

Expect no outrage of the murder of these Muslims. This will be overshadowed by today's incident in which a US serviceman took matters into his own hands.

There Has Been an Attack on a Bus Station in Kenya

CNN:

Scores of people are being treated for wounds from an explosion at a bus station in Nairobi, Red Cross in Kenya says..
kenyaexplosion.jpg

Turns out it was a series of grenades thrown at loading buses.

Naharnet: A bomb attack at a bus station in Nairobi on Saturday killed at least three people and wounded more than 20 others, Kenya police said.

A senior police official who did not want to be named told Agence France Presse it was believed several grenades had been thrown at the bus station.

"I just saw a vehicle pass and then someone just threw things that exploded," witness Charles Njenga told AFP.

"Many people have been injured," he added.

"I survived because I was in a bus that was still loading people."

It is the first such incident in the Kenyan capital since two grenade attacks carried out within 24 hours of each other last October killed one person and injured 30 others.

A Kenyan supporter of Somalia's Islamist Shebab fighters was arrested soon afterwards and was convicted after having confessed to the attacks.

This may be part of a running battle going on this weekend where al-Shabaab is trying to come back from the last few weeks ass kicking.
MOGADISHU - An offensive by Somalia's Islamist Shebab fighters on Ethiopian troops on Saturday left many combatants dead, military sources on both sides and witnesses said.

"The fighting around the village of Yurkut was the most intense since Ethiopian forces entered Somalia" in November, said one of the witnesses in the country's southwestern region, Abukar Moalim Yarow.

Military sources in both camps gave differing tolls but stressed the fierceness of the fighting, which lasted three hours, according to independent witnesses.

"The mujahideen fighters led their most important military incursion against enemy positions in Yurkut," Sheikh Mohamed Abu-Fatma, a top Shebab commander in the sector, said by telephone.

"We forced the enemy to temporarily abandon three barracks and we killed more than 40 of their men," he added.

Kalif Adan, a pro-government official, said from Baidoa that the Shebab "attacked Yurkut this morning. Many of them were killed in fierce fighting.

"The fighting is now over and (the Shebab) have been heavily beaten."

The hardline Shebab attacked Ethiopian positions in Yurkut, near the strategic town of Luuq, on the road linking the Somalia-Ethiopia border with Baidoa, a former rebel bastion in southern Somalia which Ethiopian forces recaptured last month.

Impending AQAP attack on US Embassy Sanna, Yemen: report

***Sticky until noonish, scroll down for newer posts***

The plan appears to be a diversionary attack in Mukallah Hadramout, then a vehicular swarm in the capital Sanaa with many targets including the US Embassy.

The Yemeni security has been making official statements about an impending attack in Hadramout and exactly which cars they are looking for, but this (in my view, reliable) report takes it the next step.

For earlier news reports on Ibrahim al Banna, see my post yesterday and then just keep clicking back through the earlier links and later trackbacks.

The short story is Ibrahim al Banna (Egyptian) was arrested in Hadramout in 2008 after a lethal January ambush on a Belgium tourist convoy in Shibam. He was tried and convicted in 2010, and reported killed in a 2011 drone strike. But then AQAP said he wasn’t dead after all, and it turned out that many of the 21 charged with the terrorist attack were convicted in absentia.

Yemen Observer: Reliable sources have said that al-Qaeda has been preparing for its largest operations yet in the capital city of Sana’a, operations aimed at strategic sites including military and security installments and embassies.

Sources said that al-Qaeda cells in the areas of Zindan and Arhab have trained for operations involving the storming of fortified sites, attacking fixed and mobile targets while aboard vehicles and motorbikes, and that al-Qaeda militants have entered Sana’a in preparation for carrying out their attacks in the coming few days.

The sources expect that al-Qaeda’s potential targets include the Airbase in Sana’a, the Interior Ministry, Republican Guard units and a number of embassies, including the American embassy.

Related: US drones strikes kill 25 AQ in Yemen overnight: "Moreover recent news that al-Shaba’a, the Ethiopian al-Qaeda wing had sent hundreds of Jihadists over to Abyan to join in Ansar al-Sharia, has been the cause of great concerns for both the government and the civilian population, as they feel their land could become the ground of a mighty war."

Ethiopians? al Shaba'a? 1) Maybe these are the nine mystery ships that everyone is talking about arriving before last Sunday's attack on the military base in Abyan that killed nearly 200 Yemeni soldiers. 2) How weak is AQAP that they need to import fighters?

There's also reports of drone strikes in Jaar, Abyan that destroyed the military equipment AQAP captured from the army last week-end. The Yemeni soldiers captured (who weren't beheaded or otherwise mutilated) were paraded around Jaar, forced to train the terrorists on how to operate the tanks, and now are threatened with execution if the govt doesn't release AQ prisoners.

Update: I fixed the Yemen Observer link, its quite a lengthy article and bumped the post from 730 to noon. Scroll down for new.

Update 2: The al Baydah airstrikes hit the AQAP training camp and targeted local al-Qaeda leader Abdulwahhab al-Homaiqani, the BBC reports. Its always good when there are no immediate reports of civilian casualties, I would have heard by now.

Charging Bear + Gun = Really Pissed Off Bear With Hankering For Human Flesh

A new study concludes carrying a firearm in bear country does little to discourage attacks:

Many people have wandered into bear country reassured that their trusted gun would keep them safe if they ever come face-to-face with an aggressive grizzly.

But experts have shattered that myth after carrying out a study of hundreds of animal attacks.

A Brigham Young University study found using a gun is no more effective at keeping people safe than not using a firearm.

In case you're wondering the real intent behind this "study," that is also buried in the middle of the article:

This finding is especially relevant given the 2010 law allowing guns in national parks.

Next study: How the presence of a handgun increases to chances of accidental shootings compared to encounters not involving a weapon.

Iraqi Islamists Stone To Death 90 - 100 'Emo' Teens

emo_004.jpg

Such irony that these Islamists would judge and execute anyone for "devil worship." In fact, if there is a Satan, it is fundamentalist Islam of which he is most proud.

From al Akhbar English:

At least 90 Iraqi teenagers with "emo" appearances have been stoned to death by religious extremists in Baghdad in the past month after an inflammatory interior ministry statement dubbed it "devil worshiping", activists said.

Iraq's Moral Police released a chilling statement on the interior ministry's website condemning the "emo phenomenon" among Iraqi youth, disturbingly declaring its intent to "eliminate" the trend. [...]

A group of armed men dressed in civilian clothing led dozens of teenagers to secluded areas a few days ago, stoned them to death, and then disposed their bodies in garbage dumpsters across the capital, according to activists.

The armed men are said to belong to “one of the most extremist religious groups” in Iraq.

“First they throw concrete blocks at the boy's arms, then at his legs, then the final blow is to his head, and if he is not dead then, they start all over again,” one person who managed to escape told Al-Akhbar.

al Arabia English has an image they claim is one of the victims. The image was posted on Facebook.

The Fake "Libyan Rebels Raped British Journalist to Death" Video

I'm calling shenanigans on this video purportedly of rebels in Benghazi, Libya, raping a French journalist who was working for the UK's Guardian -- to death.

Trust me, you don't want to watch this. I'm only doing this post because Howie and some of the others here were pretty upset when they heard about it.

However, there's no indication that it's real. None at all.

The video may be of a woman being raped -- it is horrible, do not watch! -- but there's nothing to indicate that these are "Benghazi rebels" as it claims.

I did some research into the video's origins. It seems to have first appeared here, at a pro-Ghaddafi website on Feb. 7th. The video was embedded on Vimeo, but has since been removed.

Several other websites and twitter accounts link the video, but none sooner than the Feb. 7th date of the pro-Ghaddafi website. Most of those linking the video are from people with a bone to pick with NATO -- namely Serbs and pro-Syrian government sympathizers.

From there it migrated to TheYNC.com, which specializes in disgusting snuff videos. The video was uploaded twice in two days. Oddly, the older of the two uploads to TheYNC had commentary about how evil NATO was, etc., etc. The next day an "uncensored" version was uploaded with no commentary, suggesting that the two videos had a common source -- probably the Vimeo version which has since been taken down.

Which means that the original video was probably uploaded by pro-Ghaddafi forces out to score points in the propaganda war.

It is a common tactic to take old shocking footage, relabel it as new shocking footage, and then spin it in such a way as to get the sympathetic audience outraged. For instance, remember the two American servicemen who were shot in Germany last year after one radical Islamist watched a scene from a Brian De Palma movie which was making rounds on the internet as "proof" American soldiers were raping Iraqi women?

This kind of BS happens all the time.

As disgusting as the video is, I just don't see any evidence at all that it came from Libya. It, like many other pieces of propaganda, simply cannot be verified and is likely the product of a sick mind combined with an agenda that includes keeping the West from meddling in Syria.

There may be many reasons why we should not have supported the anti-Ghaddafi forces in their uprising last year. There may be many reasons why we should not support those rising up against Assad in Syria. But trying to paint one side as barbarians and the other side as doing the Lord's own work just doesn't apply when it comes to any conflict in the Middle East. Both sides are full of the kind of men capable of doing what was done on this video.

Good News: Facebook Putting Soldier's Lives at Risk

I usually don't comment on what I think is mostly hype about the new big brother overlords of the interwebz. But this? I think this might be more than hype:

Soldiers' lives are being put at risk by geotagged photos - marked with a location - on social media sites like Facebook, the US Army has warned.

It says Facebook's new Timeline feature, which creates a map of places geotagged by users, also poses a risk to soldiers and their families

Many smartphones automatically geotag photos with GPS co-ordinates.

In 2007 four US Army helicopters were destroyed in Iraq after geotagged photos were posted on the internet.

By posting photos on Facebook or checking-in on social media sites like Foursquare or Gowalla, soldiers may reveal the exact location of their unit or their family, the US Army said in a statement. The release follows an army warning last year that geotag data in photos could tip off criminals.

So, if you're in the military, do us all a favor and turn off all geolocation on your iPhone. Your life could depend on it.

The Propaganda War Against the NYPD

This story by the AP uses a lot of scary words to describe the 'secretive' effort by the NYPD to 'monitor' Muslims.

Despite the allegedly nefarious plot to suppress the civil rights of Muslim Americans, there isn't a single allegation in the report that any Muslims had their civil rights violated.

In fact, the report lists two NYPD documents as the source of the alleged secret plot against Muslims. Both documents are nothing more than demographic in nature. Here is where Syrian born Muslims live and congregate, here is where Egyptians congregate.

The worst allegation is that the NYPD sent in people to see what was on TV. So, if I understand this correctly, the extent of the NYPD's "monitoring of Muslims" was confined to .... eating falafal and noting which places kept al Jazeera on?

The accusations made by the AP are nothing more than a regurgitation of a meme being pushed by the terror supporters in CAIR and their left wing allies. That narrative is that the reason so many Muslims have been arrested, indicted, and convicted in homegrown terror plots is that they are receiving unwarranted scrutiny by law enforcement.

That these terrorists are the victims, not the criminals.

Which meshes well with the Leftist worldview that criminals are simply societal victims, and that minority criminals are merely victims of the racist powers that be.

And so, Muslim criminals are really the victims of bigotry. Both CAIR and the Left can agree on that.

It's a meme CAIR has been pushing for some time now. And once you accept that notion that homegrown terrorists are victims, then it becomes a fairly straightforward process in collecting "evidence" that this world view is correct.

Hence, when it was revealed a few weeks ago that the NYPD had surfed the websites of various Muslim groups, the headline was that they were "monitoring the activities of Muslims".

Never mind that the Muslim Student Association -- one of the groups who's websites were surfed ("monitored" if you're paranoid) -- is in fact a hotbed of antisemitism and pro-terrorism support. If one was looking for homegrown terrorists, the MSA might actually be a good place to start.

Sure, most members of campus MSAs are clueless about the organizations foundational ties to radical Islam. But that's besides the point: most members of the KKK aren't terrorists, but if one wants to keep an eye out for right-wing extremists (and they really do exist!) one could do worse than hanging out at a Klan rally.

There is precisely zero evidence that the NYPD's intelligence gathering efforts have led to the trampling of any one's civil rights. None.

I heard yesterday that the NYPD's monitoring efforts have led to a breach in trust with the so-called "Muslim community". Besides the fact that there is no such thing as a "Muslim community" -- there are only Muslim communities -- I cannot help but think that these accusations came from people who already didn't trust law enforcement.

The NYPD's actions didn't cause the breach of trust, only that their actions are viewed by the paranoid as justifying a pre-existing lack of trust. Namely, that those accusations came from the terror supporters in CAIR, the ISNA, and the ICNA. The groups that claim to speak for the so-called "Muslim community" but which really speak only for those who claim Hamas isn't really a terrorist organization, that intentionally killing some (read -- > Jews ) civilians is justified, and that "one man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter".

If CAIR and their ilk really wanted to build more trust between law enforcement and the various Muslim communities in the US, then they would be doing more to convince Muslims that the FBI and police are really there to help. That terrorists do not and cannot distinguish between kafir civilians and Muslim civilians. And that the vast majority of the victims of terrorism around the world are Muslims.

Instead they focus on minor non-issues like this. Because, frankly, they have nothing else to support their paranoid world view.

Muslims in America should be thanking the NYPD for its efforts in trying to protect them, not condemning these same efforts.

Awesome: UBL's OTHER House for Rent

Not the house that he was killed in, another house in a ritzy (yeah, that's a relative term) neighborhood where bin Laden and his family lived in 2004 while he awaited the completion of his made to order mega compound.

And at $200 a month, you can't afford not to rent it!

Who still wants to argue that the Pakistanis didn't know UBL was safely tucked away in the suburbs?

#VetThePrez: If Some Liberals Call "Act of Valor" Propaganda

What would they call one of Obama's deceased BF, racist professor (the black equivalent of David Duke) Derrick Bell's movie "Space Raiders"?

Breitbart's BigH reviews the movie

The critics all agree – Professor Derrick Bell’s criminally overlooked film "Space Raiders" is a smash hit!

“I laughed, I cried, I damned America!” ~ Rev. Jeremiah Wright

“A blockbuster thrill-ride that finally shows America as the monster it is! Four red stars!” ~ Bill Ayers

“Space Traders invites you to open up your hearts and your minds to the words of Derrick Bell!” ~ President Barack Obama

Read and view it all, especially check out this alien
The aliens, through a hologram that looks and sounds like Ronald Reagan, asks for America to turn over all black Americans “in trade for solving your most pressing domestic catastrophes.” The story then follows the next five days as America debates this unusual offer.

Naturally, the nearly all-white Republican cabinet immediately embraces this innovative idea. Because, you know, Americans hate black people – at least, that’s what Bell and his critical race theorist buddies teach.

The Tornado That Shook the Earth

What's Up With That:

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — An Indiana University geophysical experiment detected unusual seismic signals associated with tornadoes that struck regions across the Midwest last week — information that may have value for meteorologists studying the atmospheric activity that precedes tornado disasters.

“The seismograms show a strong, low-frequency pulse beginning around 4:45 a.m. on Feb. 29. Our preliminary interpretation, based on other seismic records of tornadoes, suggests that we were recording not the tornado itself, but a large atmospheric pressure transient related to the large thunderstorms that spawned the tornadoes.”

Syrian Christian Group Declares Opposition to Assad

Pajamas Media:

On a rainy Friday in Washington, I gathered with passionate members of a Syrian opposition group representing a minority whose voices must be heard in the revolution and in the new Syria.

What, I asked the Syrian Christians for Democracy assembled around tables pushed together in the lounge of the Hotel George, is the one thing that Americans need to know about Bashar al-Assad?

“He’s killing kids,” Maroneh native and Boston diaspora leader Essam Francis answered succinctly.

....“Many of the Christians in the Middle East were terrified of the results, seeing what happened in countries such as Iraq and Libya and Egypt,” Stifo said. “It began to scare them of what could happen also in Syria. So we saw a lot of the Christians staying out of this completely.”

He said that it’s not true that the majority of Christians in Syria back the regime, but remained a “silent majority” out of uncertainty about the present and future.

“Our organization looked at this and said, well, it’s taking so long for Christians to make a move,” Stifo said. “We are with the revolution, and the regime was using this claim that Christians were backing them, that the minorities are all with the regime, and using this as leverage for them to stay in power.”

“So we decided to show that, no, the majority of Christians are not with the regime.”

...Francis noted that the support publicly shown for the opposition by al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri actually looks like a ploy to aid Assad.

“The Syrian regime helped al-Qaeda kill Americans in Iraq,” he said. “For al-Zawahiri to say something against the Syrian regime is not right. He did a favor for the regime to do that. He gave them reason to kill a lot more people.”

The Zawahiri statement referenced is the one released by al-Qaeda in Pakistan (well that's where he is) that was not translated from English or any other dialect for that matter.

Is American Traitor Adam Gadahn Dead?

Over at CNN there's a lengthy analysis on the steadily declining number of al Qaeda central videos translated into English. Except for a portion of a video released last year featuring American born convert Adam Gadahn speaking in his native English, there hasn't been a translated video since 2010.

Since we know that Gadahn was the translator for those earlier videos, I don't think it's crazy to speculate that he's dead.

Which would be awesome. There's something about a traitor that doesn't sit right with me. I understand how a kid growing up in Egypt could be brainwashed into thinking that America is the Great Satan and that political Islam is the answer to all of life's great problems, but a kid from Orange County? With greater light comes the greater sin.

The only other reason I can think of for the dramatic drop off is that the AQ leadership has lost faith in their English translation department. Which means that Gadahn is out of the loop or -- dead. And if he's out of the loop, what other use could they have for a fat ass from Southern California other than as a "volunteer" in a suicide squad?

So, I think Gadahn is dead. Insh'Allah.

NC Beheading Plot Suspect Gets Bail

To be fair, her part in the plot seems like it was limited to carrying messages from her visits with convicted terrorist Hysen Sherifi in prison to his brother on the outside. It was the brother that was actually trying to find someone to hire to behead three of the witnesses who testified against Sherifi at his terror trial in which he was convicted of being part of a larger plot to attack the Marine Corps base at Quantico, VA.

So, she's a small fish. But still ..... you get bail in a beheading plot?

A special education teacher charged with plotting to pay a hit man to behead witnesses who testified against a homegrown terrorist will be released on house arrest with a $1 million bond pending her trial, a federal judge ruled Thursday.

Nevine Aly Elshiekh, 46, could be sent to prison for life if convicted. But Senior U.S. District Judge W. Earl Britt determined she was not a threat to the public and unlikely to flee to her father's native Egypt or elsewhere overseas.

"I am doing this out of respect for your mother and father, and you must know if you violate the terms of your release, you place their future in jeopardy," Britt told Elshiekh during a hearing. Her lawyers said it could be next week before her family could put up the $1 million in cash or property needed to post her bond and meet other conditions the judge set for her release.

Is it just me, or does the familiar way in which the judge speaks of Elshiekh's parents indicate that they know each other? Elshiekh's father is a retired professor at NC State. I wonder if they know the judge? And if so, isn't there a conflict of interest here?

Two Western Hostages Murdered by al Qaeda

And yet, some people call them 'freedom fighters':

One British and one Italian hostage held in Nigeria by kidnappers who claimed links to al-Qaida have been killed during a joint rescue operation, the U.K. prime minister said Thursday.

Chris McManus and Franco Lamolinara, who had been working on a bank construction project in the country's restive north, were captured in May. It appeared that both hostages "were murdered by their captors before they could be rescued" by Nigerian and British forces, Prime Minister David Cameron said.

Point this story out the next time someone rolls out the 'one man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter' argument.

Ministry Irony: Pat Robertson Legalize Weed

Pat Robertson raised a few eyebrows by saying that if alcohol is a legal tax and regulated substance then Marijuana should be as well.

“I really believe we should treat marijuana the way we treat beverage alcohol,” Mr. Robertson said in an interview on Wednesday. “I’ve never used marijuana and I don’t intend to, but it’s just one of those things that I think: this war on drugs just hasn’t succeeded.”

He attributed much of the problem of overpopulated jails to a “liberal mindset to have an all-encompassing government.”

Then right on cue the Surgeon general went right out and proved Mr. Robertson right. In so much as all all-encompassing government statement.

Robertson also said that preachers who teach that Jesus made non-alcoholic wine for the wedding party were smoking too much herb.

Obama admin scrubs End Use Monitoring Agreement from Yemen embassy website?

Speaking of inventorying the Yemeni military, in June 2008, the US and Yemen signed an end use monitoring agreement on military hardware which the US embassy said, will allow for the verification of articles and services provided to Yemen under U.S.-sponsored military and security assistance, thus preventing the misuse or illicit transfer of these items and services.

So who's going to take the fall for the failure to monitor millions in US CT aid to Yemen? Or for their use against civilians, including the 2011 youth protesters and thousands in the South and Saada before the protests began, over the last four years? President Saleh's immunity deal doesn't extend to US officials.

Hey, lets just change the website and pretend it didn't happen!

Seriously, though, this is the link to the announcement that was available in June 2008 on the US Embassy's website, http://yemen.usembassy.gov/euma.html. Unfortunately the link is dead.

Being the optimistic, patriotic person I am, I searched the US embassy's website assuming it was just re-indexed but no, there is no reference to the 2008 End Use Monitoring Agreement on the site anymore. I searched by date and keywords. There's lots of old stuff including the Financial Systems Assessment Team (FSAT) report from 2007.

I would love to stand corrected on this; somebody show me where it is on the site and that the US is not doing stupid crap like deleting the notice (like they often revise the White House website when something gets uncomfortable.)

But much more importantly, back to my original question, who in the USG was responsible for end use monitoring for the last four years anyway, or more correctly who was derelict or knowingly passive, the only two options, as millions in US tax payer money was used against Saleh's political enemies (and thousands of civilians) as Al Qaeda got stronger?

Saleh's diversion of US granted aid and US trained counter-terror units was well known and openly discussed, as demonstrated by Wikileaks. More importantly, a Congressional fact finding survey entitled FOLLOWING THE MONEY IN YEMEN AND LEBANON: MAXIMIZING THE EFFECTIVENESS OF U.S. SECURITY ASSISTANCE AND INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL INSTITUTION LENDING COMMITTEE ON FOREIGN RELATIONS UNITED STATES SENATE dated Jan 5, 2010 clearly documents diversion of US military aid. There was either collusion or cluelessness in the US Embassy and State Department.

The Foreign Relations Committee's report expresses uncertainty that US Embassy personnel fully understood what the end use agreement required, and that diversion was prohibited.

This is a link to the 2011 US Congressional Service report on US mil aid to Yemen and a small part of the overall report:

1206 Defense Department Assistance In recent years, the Defense Department’s 1206 train and equip fund has become the major source of overt U.S. military aid to Yemen. Section 1206 Authority is a Department of Defense account designed to provide equipment, supplies, or training to foreign national military forces engaged in counter terrorist operations. Between FY2006 and FY2007, Yemen received approximately $30.3million in 1206 funding. In the last two fiscal years, it has received $221.8 million. As of mid-FY2010, Yemen is the largest global 1206 recipient, receiving $252.6 million. Pakistan is the second-largest recipient with $203.4 million.
This is only one section of total US military aid to Yemen. And as part of the transitional government's military restructuring, they are going to take an inventory. I hope the Foreign Relations Committee issues a follow on report.

bin-Laden's Wife Claims He Had Kidney Transplant in Pakistan

That should be something the US knows for sure.

Shaukat Qadir, 62, a former infantry commander, spent thousands of dollars of his own money and eight months of investigation putting together his report because he was suspicious of official explanations of bin Laden's life and death, the Times reports. Bin Laden was killed in Pakistan on May 2, 2011, by U.S. forces.

Among Qadir's claims:

Bin Laden's fifth wife, Amal Ahmed al-Sadah, told Pakistani interrogators that her husband underwent a kidney transplant in 2002, a claim that raises questions about who was helping him.

Another bin Laden wife told interrogators that her husband shaved his beard and disguised himself as a Pashtun tribal elder as he traveled between safe houses before settling in a house in Abottabad, Pakistan, in 2005.

Al-Qaeda operatives betrayed bin Laden for reward money from the United States. "They wanted bin Laden gone, and they wanted a share of the $25 million," Qadir says.

Of course the idea that bin-Laden was able to get a kidney in Pakistan undetected is almost like totally shocking.

Pakistan in a statement denied all this and instead claimed bin-Laden's kidney was stolen by.....

The Price for the US Helping in Syria

I follow Trump, I mean I follow a lot of people.... But one point I think he makes very well about Obama is that he is a poor negotiator. Given that negotiation with Arabs is impossible (see Ross Perot) that's not all his bad. I mean its hard to negotiate with someone who is not only duplicitous but what would the word be if your opponent actually has 8 versions of things.... Not just two.

Anyway intervention in Syria can only go badly. Really. Its a no win.

But if the Syrians are asking and yes they are.....

thousandsofsyrianbinladens.jpg

And yes that's a threat... What would thousands of bin-Ladens on Israel's border do with their spare time?

If they are asking us to free them from Iran and Assad's tyranny, there will have to be a price. A big price.

My minimum would be a 100 year security guarantee for Israel. That the new government of Syria would guarantee that it would not attack Israel for 100 years minimum. And that any Muslim in that nation of any sect would abide by that. No supporting or hiding terrorists. No Hizballah, no Hamas, No Al-Qaeda or Ansar al-Islam, nada squat nothing.

And that Syria, like Jordan, would become a force for stability and prosperity for all its neighbors including Lebanon and Israel.

And actually this is also Islamic, Sharia compliant even. Of course after 100 years..... you know.

If you doubt either that the rebels would agree or that they could deliver the answer has to be no.

If the rebels want to stop dying, well that's the price. But I doubt they would accept it. Remember what the #1 thing Muslims or at least the debatable Jihadi portion of them, love the most. Death.

Sucks, but its true....

Surprise? Another Charity Tied to al Qaeda

I always feel kind of dirty when I say this, but you just can't give money to an Islamic "charity":

A Canadian Muslim youth organization has been stripped of its charitable status after a Canada Revenue Agency investigation linked it to a Saudi-based group that allegedly financed Islamist terror campaigns.

An audit of the World Assembly of Muslim Youth revealed the charity had developed ties to a number of organizations that allegedly helped fund al-Qaeda operations around the world and failed to comply with a number of standards required for charities to maintain their status.

If you're Muslim and you need somewhere to funnel your charitable contributions, I really don't know what to say. I actually don't blame Muslims who give to these types of charities. Most of them give legitimate sounding pitches about "helping the widows and orphans in Kashmir" or some other place. Who wouldn't want to help widows and orphans?

What they don't tell you is that the money is a reward given to the families of terrorists. Or that for every dollar spent on a hospital, another dollar is used to by weapons.

And yes, I know it isn't fair to paint all Islamic charities as terror fronts. Not fair at all. But I think the precautionary principle applies to terrorism and since there is little or no vetting of what any charity actually does on the ground it is better to be safe than sorry.

It's not my fault that a good chunk of people in your religion mean to do evil in the world. If it's any one's fault, it's theirs.

Al Qaeda leader Ilyas Kashmiri not dead yet

Another undead al Qaeda, unfortunately

A senior al Qaeda leader who is one of the terror group's most dangerous military commanders and strategists, and who was reportedly killed in a drone strike last June, has been spotted at a meeting with the leader of the Movement of the Taliban in Pakistan.

Ilyas Kashmiri, who has served as the chief of al Qaeda's military operations and a member of its external operations council, as well as the head of the Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islami's Brigade 313, is said to have met with Hakeemullah Mehsud in North Waziristan, according to Daily Times.

Kashmiri "reportedly visited North Waziristan this week and held sittings with Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan [Movement of the Taliban in Pakistan] leader Hakeemullah Mehsud," Daily Times reported.

San Antonio School District Channeling Obama: School District Apologizes For Racist Chant After Basketball Game Victory

"USA! USA! USA!"

(I'm sorry to those I may have offended with the above "disturbing" comments.)

If I didn't know better, I'd swear this was satire. Not only did the school district apologize, they are now going to identify the students who participated in this 'racist' incident and force them to apologize. Plus, they'll be banned from attending title games.

Read it and weep:

SAN ANTONIO - A local school district is apologizing after an apparent incident of racism at a boys high school basketball game this past weekend.

When the final whistle blew Saturday, Alamo Heights celebrated a convincing victory over San Antonio Edison.

Alamo Heights Head Coach Andrew Brewer said he was proud of his team.

"Tremendously proud,” Brewer said. “Tremendously. It's the best group of kids."

But it was just after the trophy presentation when the coach was not proud of the chant coming from Alamo Heights fans.

"USA, USA, USA," they chanted.

[...]

Alamo Heights has apologized to SAISD and the students identified will also have to apologize and have been banned from the state title games.

"We think that you have to earn a right to be there and that's not a reflection of our school district," Brown said.

Both districts are now just trying to move past this disturbing incident.

How sickening it is that in America, you can't even be proud of your own country.

Shaffer: Awlaki a US agent before 9/11

Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer, former DIA analyst in the Able Danger data mining operation, says in a current interview that Anwar Al Awlaki was a US double or triple agent before 9/11.

That may account for the US closing its investigation of Anwar's connections to the "blind sheik" Omar Abdel Rahman in 1999. Once Awlaki's many ties to the 9/11 highjackers became clear, a JTTF San Diego investigation was reopened. But in 2002, US Attorney Gaouette rescinded an arrest warrant against Anwar for passport fraud, a day before he re-entered the US.

Anwar as a double agent for and a triple agent against the US might explain the utter communication breakdown between JTTF's DC and San Diego offices on Awlaki's email correspondence with the soon to be jihaddist murderer Nidal Hassan.

It might also explain why Awlaki was never charged with anything--not incitement, not conspiracy to murder, even after the Nigerian Abdumutallab said he met with Awlaki regarding the Dec 2009 airplane bombing plot hatched in Yemen. On the other hand, it could all be a string of incompetence and bad luck. I don't know which would be worse.

News Rescue In video, Lt.Col. Anthony Shaffer describes how Anwar al-Awlaki Was a triple agent, and an FBI Asset Before 9/11 on infowars. Anthony Shaffer is a U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel who gained fame for his claims about mishandled intelligence before the September 11 attacks and for the censoring of his book, Operation Dark Heart.


Shaffer and the Able Danger team also uncovered intelligence of an impending al Qaeda terror plot in the Gulf of Aden in the weeks immediately prior to the bombing of the USS Cole on Oct 12, 2000 in Yemen. Able Danger tried strenuously to issue a warning that, like DIA analyst Kye Fallis' was thwarted.

Despite the NSA's constant and years long monitoring of the Yemen hub and the CIA's surveillance of the 2000 Malaysia meeting where both the Cole attack and 9/11 were planned, no intelligence warning on the Cole bombing was generated or forwarded from those agencies either. (The CIA later withheld info on the Malaysia meeting from the FBI as it was investigating the Cole, leaving connections to the impending 9/11 attack unexplored.)

Lt. Shaffer was black balled by DIA after he went public with the 9/11 Commission's failure to include his testimony regarding the presence of Atta in the US. Commander Lippold was essentially forced to retire by DOD. Fallis quit DIA on the day of the Cole bombing.

The Malaysia meeting was attended by current AQAP leader Fahd al Quso and top AQ operatives from several nations. As I've been saying for nearly a decade, al Quso's unique threat level comes from his operational experience (blowing up a warship) coupled with his international connections and credibility.

Al Quso was indicted on over 50 counts of terrorism in NY's Southern District in 2003 following his 2002 escape from Aden jail. The Sanaa regime secretly released al Quso in May 2007 despite a ten year sentence handed down after his 2004 "recapture," the Washington Post reported. Al Quso finally made it to the MWT list in Nov 2009 and was designated Specially Designated Global Terrorist by the US State Department in Dec 2010.

The US began its drone campaign in Yemen with strikes in Dec 2009, where Awlaki and other AQAP leaders were supposedly meeting at Fahd al Quso's farm. Al Quso gave several media interviews recently, noting how lovely things are in the AQ occupied towns in Yemen, when they are not crucifying spies, beheading soldiers, looting banks and dehanding teen-agers.

In Response to Rustys Lack of Faith

I find Rusty's lack of faith disturbing.

Arguably the greatest Jedi Master of all time, Yoda was renowned throughout the galaxy for his ability with the Force and his great wisdom. Of all of his insights, probably his most famous piece of advice was given to Luke Skywalker on Dagobah: “Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try.”

Whilst we could spend time plenty of time explaining why this makes Yoda pretty much the single worst teacher of all time, we decided instead to check a few things called “facts” and see how Yoda stacked up against his own advice. Without further ado, here is a (non-exhaustive) chronological list of things the grossly incompetent Jedi Master tried (and completely failed) to do:

Convince Qui-Gon not to train Anakin.

Convince Obi-Wan not to train Anakin (several times).

Bully Anakin into not training to be a Jedi (no crap you sense fear in him, Yoda. He’s a nine-year-old kid who’s just been taken from his mother and is now standing in a room full of magical judgemental old people talking to a space goblin).

Realise that the only way ANYBODY could “Bring balance to the Force” would be by killing a crap load of Jedi.

Figure out the identity of the Sith Lord mastermind behind everything (despite INCREDIBLY FREQUENTLY BEING IN THE SAME ROOM).

Beat Count Dooku in a lightsaber fight.

Prevent Count Dooku from getting away after their lightsaber fight.

And I would argue the Empire hasn't failed. Oh no After Return of the Jedi Luke Skywalker becomes defacto Emperor. You kill the Emperor, you get his job. It doesn't matter if he wants the job or not. The adoring people will demand it. So as Darth Sideous says, "Everything is proceeding as I have forseen." Luke will have succeeded both Vader and Sideous. And although Yoda's record isn't outstanding he does predict, "Help them you could, but you will become an agent of evil."

So Luke will find himself the head of an Empire. Will he try to bring back democracy? The type of democracy where the Republic rotted from within. Or will he be tempted to take the short and easy path of the benevolent dictator? Which will inevitably lead him down a path to the Dark Side. All who have power are afraid of losing it.

And will Leia then cut her brother's hand off? Thus continuing the inevitable cycle of failure of both sides to bring peace and justice to the Galaxy?

Why Emperor Palpatine And Darth Vader Were Destined to Fail

Ha, I didn't see this last month when it came out, but it's destined to be an instant classic: Five leadership mistakes of the Galactic Empire. Here's a taste:

Mistake #1: Building an organization around particular people, rather than institutions.....

As the events of the movie make clear, the deaths of the Emperor and Darth Vader pretty much eliminated any opportunity for succession. A galaxy-wide organization was defeated simply by taking out two key individuals. Despite his decades of scheming, Palpatine’s organization barely lasted a day after he was gone.

Indeed, it seems that many in the Democratic party assumed that al Qaeda was run pretty much along these lines. Eliminate bin Laden, and it's game over, right?

Wrong.

Unfortunately, even bin Laden was smarter than Emperor Palpatine. His organization keeps ticking despite his untimely death.

In fact, bin Laden was more like Obi Wan Kenobi: we struck him down and he became more powerful than we could possibly imagine.

Thanks to John.

Classic: Arrested Anonymous Member Previously Arrested for Hacking Protest Warrior

I love the smell of arrested hippie in the morning:

[Jeremy] Hammond [aka Anarchaos] was arrested on access device fraud and hacking charges and is believed to have been the main person behind the devastating December hack on Stratfor, a private company that provides geopolitical analysis to governments and others. Millions of emails were stolen and then published on Wikileaks; credit card numbers and other confidential information were also stolen, law enforcement sources told FoxNews.com.

The sources said Hammond will be charged in a separate indictment, and they described him as a member of Anonymous.

And just who is Jeremy Hammond? The guy now charges with the Stratfor hack also hacked the pro-Iraq war patriots of Protest Warrior. From Wikipedia:
He was eventually arrested and charged with felony-level offenses relating to computer hacking and credit card fraud, arising from the 2004 intrusion into the website belonging to the group Protest Warrior. Hammond took a list of approximately 5000 credit card numbers, and had these numbers in his possession for a number of months...

Hammond was sentenced to 24 months in prison and 3 years' probation during which he may not participate in HackThisSite.org or anarchist activities.

Apparently he didn't learn his lesson the last time. Let's hope he serves some hard time this go around, and that he has an appropriately large cell mate.

Hamid Karzai Joins the Taliban

Chicago Tribune:

Afghanistan's president on Tuesday endorsed a "code of conduct" issued by an influential council of clerics that activists say represents a giant step backward for women's rights in the country.

The "code of conduct" issued Friday by the Ulema Council as part of a longer statement on national political issues is cast as a set of guidelines that religious women should obey voluntarily, but activists are concerned it will herald a reversal of the trend in Afghanistan since 2001 to pass laws aimed at expanding women's rights.

Among the rules: Women should not travel without a male guardian and women should not mingle with strange men in places like schools, markets or offices. Beating one's wife is prohibited only if there is no "Shariah-compliant reason," it said, referring to the principles of Islamic law.

Asked about the code of conduct at a press conference in the capital, Karzai said it was in line with Islamic law and was written in consultation with Afghan women's groups. He did not name the groups that were consulted.

"The clerics' council of Afghanistan did not put any limitations on women," Karzai said, adding: "It is the Shariah law of all Muslims and all Afghans."

That's right Sharia in all its forms is antithetical to Women's rights, Kufr's rights or the rights of Non-Muslims in a Muslim nation. And even to the rights of Muslims themselves.

Allowing Sharia to be instituted in the constitutions of both Iraq and Afghanistan was a huge mistake. A mistake that many Iraqis and Afghans will pay for with their lives.

Hat Tip: Abdulhadi.

Jihad Jane Co-Conspirator Who Talked Trash About Jawa Report Changes Plea to Guilty


Mohammad Hassan Khalid chats as "hassan" (his "kunya" = nickname) with Emerson "Goatly" Begolly, chatting as "Abu Nancy". Begolly was indicted in a terror plot unrelated to Jihad Jane

Our old friend Mohammad Hassan Khalid has decided to change his plea to guilty:

A Maryland teenager accused of helping a terror cell based in Ireland will plead guilty to a U.S. terrorism charge, according to court papers filed Monday.

Mohammad Hassan Khalid became a rare juvenile suspect held in FBI custody after his arrest last summer, when he was a 17-year-old high school student in Ellicott City, Md. Khalid had met a Pennsylvania woman who called herself Jihad Jane in an online chat room when he was 15 and had agreed to help her seek money and recruits to wage a Muslim holy war in Europe and South Asia, authorities said.

I wonder how he feels about my mother and my sexual orientation now? I'm guessing he's much more worried about the corn hole.

Sandra Fluke Background

Jammie Wearing Fool:

For me the interesting part of the story is the ever-evolving “coed”. I put that in quotes because in the beginning she was described as a Georgetown law student. It was then revealed that prior to attending Georgetown she was an active women’s right advocate. In one of her first interviews she is quoted as talking about how she reviewed Georgetown’s insurance policy prior to committing to attend, and seeing that it didn’t cover contraceptive services, she decided to attend with the express purpose of battling this policy. During this time, she was described as a 23-year-old coed. Magically, at the same time Congress is debating the forced coverage of contraception, she appears and is even brought to Capitol Hill to testify. This morning, in an interview with Matt Lauer on the Today show, it was revealed that she is 30 years old, NOT the 23 that had been reported all along.

In other words, folks, you are being played. She has been an activist all along and the Dems were just waiting for the appropriate time to play her.

While she is described as a “third year law student” they always fail to mention that she is also the past president of Law Students for Reproductive Justice.

Obama Win: Libya Breaks Into Two Countries

There were no tears shed here when that murdering bastard of American innocents was dragged from the back of that truck and shot in the head with a .45. Good f*cking riddance.

Yet, still, this is what we get when we intervene in a civil war: it's not going to end well, either way.

The easterners, who have declared autonomy, are saying that it's just like the federalism of the US and Germany. No worries. Except:

The Easterners have already formed their own army, the Barqa Supreme Military Council, which is independent from the NTC. The army is made up from revolutionaries who fought against Gaddafi rule last year. And now the forces are ready to fight for autonomy, Barqa commander Col. Hamid Al-Hassi says.

“Even if we had to take over the oil fields by deploying our forces there or risk another war, we will not hesitate for the sake of Barqa,” Hassi told the Associated Press.

Yeah, this is going to turn out well.

HuffPo Hearts Quran Verse 4:34

The Huffington Post has an article about how Allah's command for men to own, control and beat their wives into submission can abolish domestic violence.

Not included with the rather extensive article about Quran verse 4:34 is... well, the verse itself:

Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has given the one more (strength) than the other, and because they support them from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient, and guard in (the husband's) absence what Allah would have them guard. As to those women on whose part ye fear disloyalty and ill-conduct, admonish them (first), (Next), refuse to share their beds, (And last) beat them (lightly); but if they return to obedience, seek not against them Means (of annoyance): For Allah is Most High, great (above you all).

Where is Dr Rusty Shackleford? Slutty Co-Ed Edition XXV

He's applying for a job at Stonehill College because he heard they had a lot of super slutty students.

Blankmeyer claims in her lawsuit that her roommate, Laura, would have sex with her boyfriend while she was in the room and sleeping.

slutty-t-431.jpg

The roommate was having online and actual sex right in front of her,” Blankmeyer’s complaint states. She also claims that Laura would engage in “sexually inappropriate video chatting when Lindsay was in the room.”

Because Blankmeyer alleges her mental health deteriorated while she was in that situation and the school did nothing to help her resolve it, she is suing the college for $150,000.

Never Underestimate The Seething Hatred From The Left

“I never give them hell. I just tell the truth and they think it's hell.” ~Andrew Breitbart Channeling Harry S Truman
Some Daily Kos members are calling on Westboro Baptist to protest Andrew Breitbart's funeral.

Of course, the left is filled with useful idiots who hypocritically and arbitrarily apply their ever-shifting standard of morality, especial toward those they hate. The right has seen its fair share as well. But the difference is, the right doesn't take pride in those frothing miscreants misrepresenting the values we all should cherish.

We, on the right, walk a very fine line in defending unpopular, sometimes repulsive speech, even if we completely disagree. Sometimes we mock with it, though our sense of humor may be darker than many like. Sometimes, we exercise our own less-than-tasteful speech, just to prove we still have that right. And sometimes, we do it just to force others to turn the light of interrogation on themselves.

We, on the right, are not perfect. We sometimes may disagree with opposing yet free speech. We may mock it. We may deride it. But we never deliberately try to censor it because we disagree.

However, on the left, defending free speech only means agreeing with it. Because any other speech is squelched and the death of a dissenting voice is cheered.

Fortunately, the defense and free exercise of truth, never dies with the warrior protecting it. It is strengthened with each new voice, it appreciates in value with every drop of blood spilled for it, and then it is carried on by others.

LOL LulzSec PWND By Their Own Leader

lulzsec_lol.jpg
LulzSec's leader Hector Xavier Monsegur aka “Sabu”

FNC:

EXCLUSIVE: Law enforcement agents on two continents swooped in on top members of the infamous computer hacking group LulzSec early this morning, and acting largely on evidence gathered by the organization’s brazen leader -- who sources say has been secretly working for the government for months -- arrested three and charged two more with conspiracy.

Charges against four of the five were based on a conspiracy case filed in New York federal court, FoxNews.com has learned. An indictment charging the suspects, who include two men from Great Britain, two from Ireland and an American in Chicago, is expected to be unsealed Tuesday morning in the Southern District of New York[...]

As a result of Monsegur’s cooperation, which was confirmed by numerous senior-level officials, the remaining top-ranking members of LulzSec were arrested or hit with additional charges Tuesday morning. The five charged in the LulzSec conspiracy indictment expected to be unsealed were identified by sources as: Ryan Ackroyd, aka “Kayla” and Jake Davis, aka “Topiary,” both of London; Darren Martyn, aka “pwnsauce” and Donncha O’Cearrbhail, aka “palladium,” both of Ireland; and Jeremy Hammond aka “Anarchaos,” of Chicago.

Hammond was arrested on access device fraud and hacking charges and is believed to have been the main person behind the devastating December hack on U.S. security company Stratfor. Millions of emails were stolen and then published on Wikileaks; credit card numbers and other confidential information were also stolen, law enforcement sources told FoxNews.com.[More...]

And she won’t release it.

“There is only one archive tape of the play and I have it,” Dickler informed our source. “It is not in Chicago.”

But, but why does BigG have a image of 2 characters that appear to be in a play?

Muslim Arizona Mom Beat, Tortured Daughter For Refusing Arranged Marriage

As almost an afterthought in this story is that the victim's father actually tried to cut her throat. God forbid an attempted honor killing is reported... An 'honor beating' is so much more palatable to the masses.

An Iraqi mother accused of beating her teenage daughter for not going along with an arranged marriage pleaded not guilty Monday in a case police said involved burning the teen on her face and chest with a hot spoon.

Yusra Farhan, 50, entered the plea to charges of aggravated assault, unlawful imprisonment and resisting arrest.

The daughter, 19, refused to participate in an arranged marriage with a 38-year-old man, authorities said.

Two other defendants, the victim's sister, 18-year-old Tabarak Altameemi, and father, 45-year-old Mohammed Altameemi, also pleaded not guilty to assault and unlawful imprisonment.

MyFoxPhoenix.com cited court records showing that on Feb. 7 Mohammed Altameemi got mad at his daughter because she left night class with a boy. The father picked her up at school and took her home.

He is accused of cutting his daughter’s neck with a knife. Police say he admitted he was trying to kill her, but Tabarak Altameemi intervened.

The mother defended her actions by stating she didn't really beat her daughter, but only "slightly" beat her. And the girl's father was only going to "slightly" behead her...

Even Fox News cowers to political correctness.

Eric Boehlert, You Ignorant Slut

Thanks for the mention, but screw you, you dirty leftard slut for link whoring that other dirty leftard slut Charles Johnson and not linking my post directly.

Now, let's talk about you and your idiot savant friend Charles Johnson. Both of you, in your knee jerk left wing fashion failed to see the the intent of posting that picture. Why I ever expected a couple of mouth breathing knuckle dragging elitist pigs like you two to get it is beyond me. I knew you were reactionary morons, but, I did think that you might have a brain to share between you. Especially you, Boehlert. After all, you did say one nice thing about Andrew Breitbart after he died. Which is more than I can say for the sad sacks that usually populate the internet sewer that is Media Matters.

The fact that you leftists never get is that my post, like so many I've done here, was purely tongue in cheek. It was done, specifically, to get a rise out your side. And it worked!

Let me quote myself:

In related news, I'm waiting for confirmation from sources that the image beneath the fold is really that of Ms. Fluke. We get emails all the time from people claiming all kinds of things. It doesn't make them true, so we have to be careful.

The fact that you, Chuckles Johnson and your minions didn't understand that that was a lame attempt at humor only illustrates the fact the the leftist minority in this country has absolutely no sense of humor whatsoever.

That image is a photoshop that has been floating around for months. I even had one humorless Twittard tell me so:

So, while there might be a slut running around with a tramp stamp that says "Semen Demon," I never came right out and claimed it was Sandra Fluke. I just used it as, like Rush does, to illustrate absurdity by being absurd. Unlike Rush, though, I have no intention of apologizing.

As a matter of fact, knowing I'm causing outrageous outrage just makes me hoist a dram of single malt in joyous celebration. Keep 'em coming, losers.

Islamic extremist distribution in Germany....

Since they rather insist on having a bright light shone upon them, I present the following.

Figure 1 shows the location of members of the Ansar al-Mujahideen English Forum (AMEF) circa 2009, both in Germany and in surrounding countries. If I were to bother to make a similar map for any number of Arabic jihadi forums, from data collected at any time over the past ten years, the situation in Germany would appear very much the same. Europe is packed high and tight with these folks.

Figure 2 is a much more recent work, and is based on an examination of a German Islamic extremist network that is both linked to the German-language forum ahlu-sunnah.com, and also to Arid Uka, who killed two American service men at the Frankfurt Airport last year.

US Marine's Death Sentence Overturned in Iran

The misnomer below? There are no ex-Marines. Once a Marine, always a Marine. Or so my father -- the Marine -- told me all the time.

So, this Marine won't get the death penalty. But he's not out of the woods yet. I consider him a hostage. He's leverage for Iran. It's win-win for them. If the US or Israel bombs, then they'll regretfully announce that he committed suicide by shooting himself in the back. For now, though, they'll play the generous humanitarians and rescind the death sentence as a show of good will.

See, we're all moderates here:

Iran's Supreme Court has overturned a death sentence for spying handed down to former US Marine Amir Mirzai Hekmati, Iranian media reported on Monday, quoting a top judiciary official.

"The sentence was overturned by the Supreme Court ... The case has been sent back" to the court for retrial, prosecutor general Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ejei told a press conference, ISNA news agency reported without elaborating.

Take that, you Pakistani bastards:

The US maintains special forces' teams in India to train Indian forces in counter-terrorism, specifically against Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), evoking sharp reaction from CPI that why the government kept it under wraps and Parliament was not taken into confidence in the matter.

Admitting this for the first time, chief of US' Pacific Command (PACOM) Robert Willard told a Congressional hearing that both Washington and New Delhi were working closely against the threat of terrorism from LeT.

Like I've been saying for years: we don't need to commit ground troops in the coming conflict with Pakistan, the Indians have plenty of manpower to undertake that task.

Sandcrawler PSA: Where John McCain is Wrong

CNN is running where John McCain says we should lead a coalition of airstrikes against the Syrian regime.

And he's right in the sense that if the regime starts to win too big we should bomb them. And in instances where the rebels start to gain the upper hand, not likely, we should let the regime clean house up to a certain point. Then give the rebels some ammo and RPG's.

Thus maintaining a fine balance in the Arab dance of death in Syria. Where our enemies of all stripes can entertain themselves by killing each other off.

I call it The Fair and Balanced Interference Strategy.

And if you think its cruel and heartless, well I guess I've been hanging with too many Arab Islamists?

Whoa: Mitt Romney Tops Conservative Blog Poll

John Hawkins over at Right Wing News asked 250 right of center bloggers who they'd like to see as President. I'm pretty surprised by this, but of the 67 bloggers that responded Mitt Romney was the clear winner.

I'm stunned:

1) If you had to pick the GOP’s 2012 presidential nominee today, which of the following candidates would you select?

4) Ron Paul: 4.4% (3 votes)
3) Rick Santorum: 20.6% (14 votes)
2) Newt Gingrich: 27.9% (19 votes)
1) Mitt Romney: 47.1% (32 votes)

And when he pitted Romney vs. Gingrich or Santorum in a 1 on 1 race, Romney also beat each of them.

I keep hearing from Santorum that when you add up the not-Romney vote that it far exceeds the vote for Romney. It's a valid point.

But isn't it also true that if you add up the not-Santorum vote that it's even greater than the not-Romney vote? That's something to think about.

The only dark spot for Romney was when asked whether they would prefer Romney or some other unnamed Republican candidate. The unnamed candidate wins 53% to 47%.

So I guess the blogosphere is far less anti-Romney than I had thought.

Report: Iran Already Tested Nuke Bomb

I find this hard to believe. Or more precisely, I don't want to believe this. But stranger things have happened:

Iran may have tested a nuclear bomb in North Korea in 2010, Hans Rühle, who directed the planning department of the German Defense Ministry from 1982 to 1988, wrote on German daily Die Welt's website on Sunday.

According to his article, many intelligence agencies believe that of the two nuclear tests carried out in North Korea in 2010, at least one detonation was an Iranian atomic weapons device. Some intelligence agencies believe that North Korea used its nuclear weapons expertise to test a weapon of mass destruction on behalf of the Iranians .

If true, then I'm not sure I get the reason why Obama is putting the kibosh on Israel attacking Iranian nuclear facilities?

I take that back. I know perfectly well why he would want them to hold off.

It's an election year. Bombing Iran would send gas prices north of $5. And under those conditions Obama would lose.

It's the same reason we're already drawing down troops in Afghanistan. An election ploy.

Nothing is more important to this country than Obama being reelected. Not winning a war. Not an apocalyptic enemy who calls us the Great Satan with a nuclear weapon.

Obama, il est l'état

Thanks to Michael.

CNN PRODUCER NOTE davis316 shared these photos taken by his wife today of a counter-protest in Harrisburg, IL, against the controversial Westboro Baptist Church, who planned to protest a funeral for the people who died during the February 29 tornado. They estimate around 3,000 people showed up, forming a human chain to prevent the WBC picketers from approaching the funeral. 'The WBC people didn't even get out of the car,' he said.

Yeah, now we're talkin'.

Palin: West Should Be V.P.

Personally, I think Allen West would be wasted in the position of the Vice Presidency. He needs - and deserves - a position of much more power and influence.

(Un)Related: Allen West on Obama and Osama:

I agree with President Obama that he does not bluff, he prefers apologizing. Simply stated, talk is cheap when dealing with despots, dictators, autocrats, and theocrats. PM Netanyahu understands his neighborhood and we should defer to a former Israeli Commando on matters such as this instead of a community organizer.

I appreciate President Obama’s desire to seem tough but so far it has only resulted in the expansion of radical Islamist dominance in the middle east. And please stop with the Osama Bin Laden line, US Navy SEALS double-tapped that rascal.

VP? Pfft! He deserves so much more.

Apropo of North Korea

In light of recent news that the NORKS seek to restart talks:

Talks with North Korea are the porn shoots of diplomacy — staged, loveless, and ultimately unsatisfying exhibitionism after which nothing endures except for the sense of self-debasement, years of awkward explanations, and possibly a painful burning sensation.
I agree. Seen here, an erudite source in South Korea.

Rush Limbaugh Apologizes To Sandra "Not A Slut, I Just Like Having Sex Alot" Fluke

Why? I have no idea.

Well, I do have an idea. Major, long time advertisers started jumping ship. So I'm guessing his reasoning was purely financial.

In related news, I'm waiting for confirmation from sources that the image beneath the fold is really that of Ms. Fluke. We get emails all the time from people claiming all kinds of things. It doesn't make them true, so we have to be careful.

Update Thanks for the traffic! Sucker!

#Occupy Protesters Charged With Felony Robbery & Hate Crimes

Just like the Tea Party, eh?

They even stole her Barack Obama pin!

The confrontation happened about 6 p.m. Feb. 22 in the 4000 block of Piedmont Avenue. Police said that some Occupy Oakland protesters were demonstrating against a Wells Fargo bank branch there when a woman across the street expressed her opinion about the Occupy movement and the way it's being handled, Wingate said.

Wingate said a handful of protesters quickly surrounded the 42-year-old woman and prevented from leaving the area. Her wallet was taken from her purse, and protesters yanked a Barack Obama pin from her clothing, police said.

Wingate said she was also verbally abused, including making derogatory remarks about her perceived sexuality. A protester punched the woman and she was bruised and scratched in the altercation.

Hora charged the three with a felony robbery and a felony hate crime because the woman was injured in addition to being verbally insulted.

These protesters are nothing but cowards. It took three of them to bully and harass this one woman protecting her neighborhood.

So much for the #Occuturds allowing freedom of expression for those who disagree with them. If they treat their own this way, imagine how they'd treat those who are on opposite sides of the political spectrum!

Remember:

Obama supports these #Occupy protesters.

Pelosi blesses them.

@AlecBaldwin thinks its "good".

More Tornadoes Kill 31

But by the grace of God go I.

(CNN) -- Rescuers searched for survivors Saturday after powerful storms spawned tornadoes that killed dozens as they ripped through the South and Midwest, flattening towns and turning churches into shelters.

At least 28 people were killed: 15 in Indiana, 12 in Kentucky and one in Ohio.
Rescue workers combed through rubble overnight for dozens believed missing after the storms struck Friday, according to state and local authorities.

CNN's red breaking banner now says 31 people were killed.

Some video of the storms here.

What Homegrown Terror Problem? NYC Man Sentenced for Trying to join al Qaeda to Kill Americans

Remember, this week's outrage from the Left was over the revelation that some NYC cops monitored some Muslim webpages. No one was actually hurt, arrested, or denied any civil liberties, but apparently the outrage bar is pretty low these days and the status of "victim" is applied when the wrong eyeballs make internet contact with the protected class.

Meanwhile, a real life would be terrorist is sentenced to 27 years for trying to join al Qaeda to kill his fellow Americans. He was born and raised here, the son of Albanian parents.

So, if I understand the scorecard here. Surfing the web for terrorists from the group most likely to produce those terrorists: outrage. Treason: crickets.

Fox News:

A New York City man was sentenced to 27 years in prison Friday for traveling to the Middle East in a failed bid to join al-Qaida and avenge abuse of Muslims by killing American troops.

Kaziu and star witness Sulejah Hadzovic were two U.S.-born sons of Islamic immigrants from the former Yugoslavia who met in sixth grade. By 2008, "they pursued a growing interest in radical Islam" and began searching the Internet for opportunities to take up arms against U.S. troops....

The pair traveled in 2009 to Egypt, where Hadzovic they attended school, sought to obtain AK-47s and considered whether to take up arms in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Palestine or Somalia....

...once on his own, Kaziu tried, but failed, to join al-Qaida groups in Iraq, Afghanistan and the Balkans. He eventually made his way to Kosovo.

On the Albanian coast, he recorded a video that a prosecutor described as "his goodbye, contemplating how he would soon depart for paradise — a reward for those who die a martyr," and had bought a plane ticket to Pakistan. But he was captured local authorities before he could make the trip.

I sometimes hear Muslims claim the US is inherently racist. We have our fair share of racists, sadly.

Islam, they claim, is the cure for that racism.

But you ever notice that it's the white guys that have the hardest time joining al Qaeda?

Hypocrisy aint just a river in Egypt.
