An Apple a Day
An Apple a Day ...Awesome photo.
You voted, and March's photo of the month comes from Cpl. Reece Lodder. Lodder was with 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, on the way to meet with Afghan National Police when he noticed two small boys run up to Lance Cpl. Tom Morton. “Even in the middle of a mission that demanded his full attention, the tall, tattooed infantryman took a moment to make the children's day," said Lodder. "He didn't have to stop or interact with the kids, but he chose to. I thought it was a reflection of his character - and a greater reflection of the Marines around him."
U.S. Marine Lance Cpl. Tom Morton, a 23-year-old team leader with 3rd Platoon, Kilo Company, 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, and native of Nashville, Tenn., hands an Afghan child a toy during a security patrol here, Feb. 25. On the patrol, the 3rd Platoon Marines partnered with Afghan National Police to search for insurgent activity in Safar Bazaar, Garmsir district's busiest commercial center. They mentor the ANP in a partnered combat operations center at PB Bury, and patrol with them throughout Safar. The partnership is a vital part of preparing the Afghan National Security Forces to assume lead security responsibility in Garmsir.

SC Teacher Abuses Student To Demonstrate How Nazis Abused Jews
Apparently, the cafeteria refused to let her use an oven for the "interactive demonstration" about the holocaust.
A Bluffton Middle School teacher is accused of grabbing a seventh-grader by his shirt collar, forcing him under a desk and telling him, "This is what the Nazis do to Jews," according to the Bluffton Police Department.
The student's parents decided to press charges.
A lawyer for social studies teacher Patricia Mulholland said she was merely conducting an "interactive demonstration" on the Holocaust during a class Wednesday. (Source)
Dear Comrades: New Obama slogan, Forward, has long ties to Marxism, socialism
For your reading pleasure:[Washington Times]
The Obama campaign apparently didn't look backwards into history when selecting its new campaign slogan, "Forward" — a word with a long and rich association with European Marxism.[...]
The slogan "Forward!" reflected the conviction of European Marxists and radicals that their movements reflected the march of history, which would move forward past capitalism and into socialism and communism.
al-Qaeda Still Hiding Messages in Porn
On May 16 last year, a 22-year-old Austrian named Maqsood Lodin was being questioned by police in Berlin. He had recently returned from Pakistan via Budapest, Hungary, and then traveled overland to Germany. His interrogators were surprised to find that hidden in his underpants were a digital storage device and memory cards.All your porn are belong to us.
Buried inside them was a pornographic video called "Kick Ass" -- and a file marked "Sexy Tanja."
Several weeks later, after laborious efforts to crack a password and software to make the file almost invisible, German investigators discovered encoded inside the actual video a treasure trove of intelligence -- more than 100 al Qaeda documents that included an inside track on some of the terror group's most audacious plots and a road map for future operations.

New al Qaeda Chief Also Leader of Pakistani Taliban
Al Qaeda has named a new chief of Pakistani operations. They have to do this quite a bit given that each new chief is killed in a drone strike:
Al-Qaeda has named Farman Ali Shinwari, a resident of the restive Khyber tribal region and whose brothers have been associated with terrorism in Kashmir, as its new chief in Pakistan.But the real news here is buried in the story. You know how we are always being told by the wishful-thinkers on the Left that al Qaeda and the Taliban aren't the same thing? Well, read on and prepared to have your hopes for a "diplomatic solution" dashed:
He also served as the head of Harkat-ul-Mujahideen and is currently said to be leading a faction of the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan in Waziristan.The family that jihads together, or something.
Hazrat Ali alias Abu Mas’ab, another of Shinwari’s brothers, heads a Taliban faction called the Abdullah Azam Brigade.
Shinwari’s other brothers, Rehmat Nabi, Matiullah and Raziullah, have all fought in Kashmir with the Harkat-ul-Ansar. They later joined the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan.
Oh, and for those of you who pin your hopes for defeating terror on "education" take note of this distressing factoid: He has a Master's Degree in International Relations.
Al Qaeda (IM) Offers Prisoner Swap for Abu Qatada
This would be the same Abu Qatada who claims he isn't a member of al Qaeda. This really helps his case, right?
"The initiative to the British Government is to release its citizen Stephen Malcolm, who also has South African nationality, if it deports Abu Qatada to one of the ‘Arab Spring’ countries," the statement read. "If Britain ignores this offer it will bear the consequences of handing Abu Qatada to the Jordanian government."
Syria: Assad Stages Damascus Bombings
Move Over Pallywood, Here comes Assadywood?
Via Michael J Totten[read it all]
This video was compiled using footage broadcast by Syrian state-owned TV following several large explosions in the Maidan district of central Damascus on January 6, 2012. Within minutes, Syrian regime declared Al-Qa'eda the culprit and vowed to retaliate "with an iron fist". Syrian democracy activists accused the regime itself of executing the bombings, in order to legitimize its ongoing crackdown. No victims' names were ever released.Any suggestions other than Assadywood?
Report: Haqqani Leader Tracked Down
Okay, if we have him ..... then let's kill the SOB:
US forces traced Sirajuddin Haqqani, the elusive operating chief of the al-Qaeda linked Haqqani network recently to Waziristan's main town of Miran Shah in Northwestern Pakistan.Keep your fingers crossed!
Sirajuddin was found by American forces to be in the turbulent town during the recent audacious militant attacks on the Afghan capital Kabul.
This is for the first time that US officials have acknowledged tracing the Haqqani faction Taliban leader whose outfit they blame for the number of attacks on American establishments including the US embassy and NATO headquarters in Kabul.
Rusty Declares War on Women
Updated: Chechen Women Killed for Loose Morals
Wait, lesbians need birth control???
UPDATE: Here's what a real war on women looks like:
Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov publicly announced that the dead women had “loose morals” and were rightfully shot by male relatives. He went on to describe women as the property of their husbands, and said their main role is to bear children.Thanks to William Teach.
“If a woman runs around and if a man runs around with her, both of them should be killed,” said Mr. Kadyrov, who often has stated his goal of making Chechnya “more Islamic than the Islamists.”

Israel: Benjamin Netanyahu's Father Dies
Wow, he was 102:
JERUSALEM, Israel -- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's father, Prof. Ben-Zion Netanyahu, passed away in his Jerusalem residence early Monday morning at the age of 102. The prime minister visited with his father for the last time on Sunday.Our thoughts and prayers are with PM Netanyahu, his family and many friends.
A prolific writer, editor and historian, and professor emeritus at Cornell University, Ben-Zion wrote extensively on the history of the Jewish people in Spain. In the 1950s, he edited the Encyclopedia Hebraica. Decades ago, he even predicted the rise of Islamic fundamentalism and the downing of the Twin Towers.[More...]
RIP Ben-Zion Netanyahu, may the memory of you be a blessing..
Al Armendariz Under Obama Bus: Top EPA Official Resigns After Crucify Comment

Therefore, Obama sucks and leads America Forward toward disaster. Great logic, I know, but it is still accurate.Obama campaign slogan "Forward" apparently was taken from MSNBC.

BMW Sued Over Boner
Personally, I would think it would take at least a Lamborghini to have that effect on me if I were a guy...
SAN FRANCISCO (WWJ) - BMW North America has probably had to deal with plenty of unusual lawsuits, but one filed last week may be a first — a California man says the seat on his motorcycle has given him an erection he just can’t shake. [...]
He said he’s had the erection non-stop for 20 months. (Source)
He should have read the warning label. It says if the erection lasts longer than four hours you should seek medical attention.
A year after U.S. forces killed Osama bin Laden, most policy makers and pundits believe al Qaeda is near collapse. "Another nail in the coffin," one senior U.S. official told me after the death of an al Qaeda operative in Pakistan last month from a U.S. drone strike. In testimony before the Senate in February, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said the core al Qaeda is likely becoming of "symbolic importance."
This conclusion is presumptuous. As the administration looks eastward—a strategy that incorporates China's rise—underestimating al Qaeda would be a dangerous mistake. With a handful of regimes teetering from the Arab Spring, al Qaeda is pushing into the vacuum and riding a resurgent wave as its affiliates engage in a violent campaign of attacks across the Middle East and North Africa.
Good News: Another German Jihadist Killed in Afghanistan
Bad News: Not German Jihadist Salahudin Ibn Jafar
A German jihadist is thought to have been killed in an airstrike carried out by US drones on March 9 in Pakistan's Taliban-controlled tribal agency of South Waziristan.Read more:
The German, a known "Islamist" from Aachen, has been identified at Samir H., according to a report in Der Spiegel. Samir was one of 13 Taliban and "foreign fighters" who were killed in the March 9 strike in Makeen, South Waziristan. In that strike, the remotely-piloted US strike aircraft fired missiles at a pickup truck transporting Taliban fighters.
Samir was the "son of a Tunisian father and a German mother" and was "born and raised in East Germany," according to Jih@d, a website that tracks European jihadists. Samir "traveled to Pakistan in October 2009 with his wife and two children, and joined the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU). In November 2009 Samir´s sister, at the age of 18, followed her older brother and made her way to the Waziristan tribal region."
When I see the words dead German Jihadist I always hope for Salahudin Ibn Jafar.
Oh well maybe next time.
Progressives Suspected in Twitter Exploitation
Apparently, liberal users of the social networking site Twitter have organized to exploit Twitter's spam notification system attempting to get conservative Twitter users' accounts suspended.
From Breitbart's Dana Loesch:
Earlier this evening my husband, Chris Loesch, had his Twitter account suspended. There have been stories going around of conservatives getting suspended from Twitter over innocuous things while accounts like @KillZimmerman (an account which threatened to kill George Zimmerman) and other such accounts were left active for weeks. After a user remarked about me being raped and murdered, Chris and others defended me.
Big surprise that efforts to suppress free speech come from the Left.
UPDATE by SH: Malkin's @Twitchy has continuing updates on this. Check it here. Some conservatives supporting #FreeChrisLoesch have also been suspended.
BTW, B'emet Or, you are on the progs hit list.

Revenge of the Bronies
And what is a "brony," you ask?
Kurt Schlichter sums it up at Big Hollywood:
There are grown men out there who devote themselves to the rainbow-unicorn-sparkly-pastel fantasy world of the children’s TV show “My Little Pony.”
Schlichter goes on to question the manhood of adult males who avidly follow an animated show designed for pre-pubescent girls.
Dare I say that Kurt is beating a dead horse?
And now, the bronies have responded:
Rabbi Boteach Blasts Savages Anti-Christian Rant: Westboro Of The Left..
Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, a popular Orthodox rabbi famous for his writings on sex and popular culture, has blasted White House-endorsed sex columnist Dan Savage for his attack on the Bible and Christianity in front of an audience of high school students, comparing Savage's remarks to the hateful bigotry of the Westboro Baptist Church.
In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, Rabbi Boteach said:As an orthodox Rabbi with a gay orthodox Jewish brother, I have endeavored mightily to reconcile the dictates of my faith with the most human, loving, and respectful approach to homosexuality. I have counseled hundreds of gay men and women of faith who seek to find their place in G-d's love amid a gay lifestyle. Such efforts at reconciliation are undone by the gratuitous hate-filled bigotry of people like Dan Savage whose response to prejudice against gays is to offer insulting and degrading prejudices against religion.[More..[

The New York Times’ War on Police
Especially Commisioner Ray Kelly
Accuracy in Media - At The New York Times annual meeting on April 25, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Arthur Sulzberger Jr. denied that his paper was waging a war on the New York City Police Department and its commissioner, Ray Kelly. The denials are not convincing.The Times has an axe to grind, Ray Kelly appeared in The Third Jihad and The Times would have none of that calling it "Islamophobic"
As I arrived in New York City for the annual meeting, the reason for the recent intensity of this campaign became apparent. Other papers were full of stories about how Kelly, who is very popular with city residents, is being pushed by New York City Republican officials to run for mayor.
The New York Daily News is reporting that Kelly’s job approval rating is at 77%, while his 63% favorability rating among city voters was “by far the highest of anyone considering a mayoral run next year.”
The Times is determined to do something about that. On the same day as the annual meeting, the Times published a puff piece on how New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, the leading Democrat for the office, could become the city’s first homosexual mayor. The paper happily reported that, on May 19, Quinn will marry her girlfriend, Kim M. Catullo.
The paper added, “This year began with the revelation that a film offensive to Muslims, which included an interview with Mr. Kelly, had been shown to many officers.”A few days I posted about The Muslim Brotherhood smearing Dr Jasser, the narrator of the film, on Twitter. Sadly, some anti-jihad or #waronislam twits are also after Dr Jasser. He is a staunch believer of reform and the separation of "Mosque and State". Not good enough for these twits.
The latter reference is to the film that Rusty Weiss covered in his recent special report for AIM, “Journalism, Jihad and The New York Times.” At the annual meeting, Sulzberger defended a series of articles and an opinion piece that distorted the nature of the film “The Third Jihad” and attacked Kelly for appearing in it. The Times complained that the film, which highlights the threat posed by radical Islam, should not have been shown to police officers as part of their police training.
In fact, the film is narrated by a Muslim and is only offensive to radical Muslims, the kind that associate with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), linked to the terror group Hamas. It was CAIR and the George Soros-funded Brennan Center for Justice that ginned up the controversy over the film.
British Muslim Beheaded by Pakistani Taliban (Update BLF Faction)
The beheaded corpse of a British aid worker has been discovered in the Pakistani city of Quetta, almost four months after he was kidnapped.Savages..
The body of Khalil Rasjed Dale was discovered on a road outside the city, in southern Baluchistan province, with a note saying he had been killed because a ransom had not been paid.
Dale, who had been working for the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), was kidnapped in January while driving near the organisation's Quetta office.
"We are devastated," said ICRC director general Yves Daccord. ''Khalil was a trusted and very experienced Red Cross staff member who significantly contributed to the humanitarian cause."
"All of us at the ICRC and at the British Red Cross share the grief and outrage of Khalil's family and friends."
The 60-year-old Muslim convert was a longstanding ICRC and British Red Cross worker. He had been managing an ICRC health programme in Quetta for almost a year.
Update: The Taliban spokesman want us to make clear this was not the Taliban so much as the Baloch Liberation Army. Which is a distinct group of Not Taliban Taliban that operates in Southwestern Pakistan and Afghanistan.

DOJ Asked to Investigate How Obama Campaign Co-Chair Obtained Stolen IRS Tax Return
Human Rights Campaign/Huffington Post/Obama Campaign. Marriage made in Hell.
The National Organization for Marriage is asking the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate and prosecute the individuals responsible for leaking the organization’s confidential U.S. tax return and then illegally publishing it.Just when you think you've heard it all, more crap like this happens.
The stolen tax return was first published by the Human Rights Campaign and subsequently the Huffington Post. HRC is led by Joe Solmonese, who also serves as a co-chairman of President Obama's reelection committee.
In an April 25 letter to Kathryn Keneally, assistant attorney general for DOJ’s tax division, NOM President Brian Brown and Chairman John C. Eastman request an immediate investigation “to identify the person(s) responsible for these illegal actions.” (The letter is published below.)
Brown will provide an update on the brewing scandal at The Bloggers Briefing. Breitbart TV, in partnership with The Heritage Foundation, will air it live on Tuesday at noon ET.
As previously reported by the Breitbart News Network, NOM’s confidential tax return was disclosed by the Human Rights Campaign and Huffington Post on March 30 in an attempt to expose the group’s donors. Publication of the material is a felony, punishable by a fine of up to $5,000 and/or imprisonment for up to five years.[Continue reading]
Prison Masturbation Offenders
(Hartford, Connecticut) At the Northern Correctional Institution, masturbating male inmates have been regularly observed by female workers.
According to Lisamarie Fontano, president of the prison workers union, over 500 official masturbation reports were recorded last year.
As a result, lawmakers have introduced legislation to seemingly criminalize acts of masturbation committed while incarcerated. It's reported that those prison inmates caught whipping the frosting will be required to register as sex offenders upon release from prison.
It's not clear how the scheme will work but it is conceivable that the offending inmate would simply have his file tagged for a post-release administrative adjustment.

The Real Keynesian Economic Winner Germany
I was listening to Paul Krugman's argument for how digging ourselves into a deeper hole will save us all yesterday.
The New York Times columnist and Nobel laureate argues that Keynesian economics got us out of a much worse depression in the 1930s, so if we were to follow Keynesian prescriptions now, we could get out of this one too.I've heard a lot of discussion about this. Where the UK's dip in GDP was blamed on cutting spending. The US's weak growth is because we're not borrowing enough money.
Spending cuts are always labeled as austerity. Whatever it is "austerity" must be bad.
But what they don't want to talk about is that all these countries who were applying Keynesian economics during the last ten years before the recent recession are now begging for loans from Germany.
Germany began looking at deficit during the good times. Just like Krugman says we should have done. It hurt their growth somewhat during that period. Even so, in the end Germany could afford to apply Keynesian stimulus to their economy when needed.
Apparently they also have enough money to finance the Keynesian stimulus on top of the past Keynesian stimulus for the rest of Europe as well, or so the countries who wish to apply more Keynesian stimulus on top of the Keynesian stimulus applied to the Keynesian stimulus would tell you.
Austerity has been very good for Germany, no?
Quite simply we have not made the tough decisions that would have put us in a position to win at Keynesian game. Germany did.
Afghans Kill Another US Soldier
An elite Afghan soldier shot dead an American mentor and his translator at a U.S. base, Afghan officials said on Friday, in the first rogue shooting blamed on the country's new and closely vetted special forces.If we're in Afghanistan to teach the Afghan army how to kill people, mission accomplished. Its high time we let the Afghans and the Taliban kill each other instead of us.
"The shooting took place after a verbal conflict where the Afghan special forces soldier opened fire and killed an American special forces member and his translator," Hamid told Reuters.
Hamid said U.S. soldiers had immediately fired back and killed the gunman, as well as another Afghan special forces soldiers who was caught up in the ensuing crossfire.
If we want to operate in Afghanistan fine. I'm for being there so we can kill our enemies so long as we can do that effectively. As far as working closely with our friends there, Friends? What Friends?
I will give Obama credit. I didn't think he could utterly lose all advantage we held in Afghanistan in less than four years. Especially when Osama went down. But he's really outperformed in this area.
In Afghanistan its really very much about perceptions. Obama is seen as the weak horse. Over time they know, he will apologize, he will give concessions. He will grovel.Captain John Kirby, a Pentagon spokesman, said that though it was often impossible to determine the motives for such shootings, U.S. officials believed the majority of the attacks were driven by "personal grievances" rather than Taliban infiltration or inspiration.
...Quite often people resolve their personal problems by resorting to the use of a weapon. It's more of a cultural thing here.Its just their culture?
WTF? What culture would that be? Hmmm?
Moving on this is not the response we need. The response has to be that this is unacceptable. Where's our blood money? And sternly.
Of course then Reuters runs Taliban Spokeman Qari Yousef Ahmadi's immediate claim that the Taliban were behind the shooting. The problem with this is Ahmadi is known to be a liar located in Pakistan. The website where he will post the same false propaganda is still operating freely here.
But who needs that when you have Reuters?
Update: Legal Insurrection.
Obama’s foreign policy has been a profound disaster, subjugating generations of women throughout the region to fundamentalist tyranny as Obama concocts a false “war on women” campaign theme against Republicans.
Dan Savage Bullies Christian HS Students Curses Bible Talks About his Parter's Package
As many as 100 high school students walked out of a national journalism conference after an anti-bullying speaker began cursing, attacked the Bible and reportedly called those who refused to listen to his rant “pansy asses.”More here and here.
The speaker was Dan Savage, founder of the “It Gets Better” project, an anti-bullying campaign that has reached more than 40 million viewers with contributors ranging from President Obama to Hollywood stars. Savage also writes a sex advice column called “Savage Love.”
Savage, and his husband, were also guests at the White House for President Obama’s 2011 LGBT Pride Month reception. He was also invited to a White House anti-bullying conference.
Savage was supposed to be delivering a speech about anti-bullying at the National High School Journalism Conference sponsored by the Journalism Education Association and the National Scholastic Press Association. But it turned into an episode of Christian-bashing.
Rick Tuttle, the journalism advisor for Sutter Union High School in California, was among several thousand people in the audience. He said they thought the speech was one thing – but it turned into something else.
“I thought this would be about anti-bullying,” Tuttle told Fox news. “It turned into a pointed attack on Christian beliefs.”
I find it odd that he's asked to speak about bullying issues. His advocacy for gay issues and his open hostility towards conservatives, republicans and people of all faiths is well known and easily available on his Wiki page.
Carl Romanelli should be dragged behind a pickup truck until there's nothing left but the ropeAnd...
I wish the Republicans were all fucking dead..But that's how the leftist education clique works. They will excuse hatred and bullying so long as its against "the other".
Claims of ignorance about Dan Savages past by these educators are almost laughable. He's even been invited into Obama's white house and praised by the administration for his "work". But they didn't know he was an asshole? Right.

Top al-Qaida bomb maker in Yemen, Ibrahim Hassan al-Asiri, resurfaces
WASHINGTON (AP) - When a drone strike killed one of the leaders of al-Qaida's affiliate in Yemen[AQAP,,ed] last year, U.S. intelligence officials thought they also had wiped out the terrorist group's top bomb maker.There is a hellfire out there somewhere with his name on it.
Soon it became apparent that Ibrahim Hassan al-Asiri, the brains behind sophisticated bombs that have been used in attempts to attack the U.S., was still alive. A hunted al-Asiri went underground, knowing the U.S. was after him, particularly after the U.S. killed Anwar al-Awlaki, one of the Yemen group's top leaders.
But U.S. counterterrorism officials say he has resurfaced. They worry he might be at work doing what he does best: building bombs that could defeat airline security, The Associated Press has learned.
Donate to Romney? Obama Will Put You On His PUBLIC List Shaming YouFor Betting Against America
Unreal, oh wait.
Try this thought experiment: You decide to donate money to Mitt Romney. You want change in the Oval Office, so you engage in your democratic right to send a check.Obama does acknowledge rules, Alinsky's Rules for Radicals...
Several days later, President Barack Obama, the most powerful man on the planet, singles you out by name. His campaign brands you a Romney donor, shames you for “betting against America,” and accuses you of having a “less-than-reputable” record. The message from the man who controls the Justice Department (which can indict you), the SEC (which can fine you), and the IRS (which can audit you), is clear: You made a mistake donating that money.
Are you worried?
Richard Nixon’s “enemies list” appalled the country for the simple reason that presidents hold a unique trust. Unlike senators or congressmen, presidents alone represent all Americans. Their powers—to jail, to fine, to bankrupt—are also so vast as to require restraint. Any president who targets a private citizen for his politics is de facto engaged in government intimidation and threats. This is why presidents since Nixon have carefully avoided the practice.
Save Mr. Obama, who acknowledges no rules.[More...]
Taliban Website Hacked For The Third Time This Year
Update: Added what I believe to be the recent image[h/t Laura Walker via B'emet Or]
Nice! Not that I condone hacking, but this hack was delicious,
wish I had a screencap of it:
KABUL — Hackers have for the third time in less than a year crippled the main website of the Afghan Taliban, with a Taliban spokesman on Friday blaming Western intelligence agencies amid an intensifying cyber war with the insurgents.Tell me again why this website has not been suspended, permanently?
The unidentified hackers broke into the Taliban’s El Emara website twice on Thursday, replacing usual insurgent victory messages with images of executions and support for the Afghan government and security forces in English, Arabic and Pashto.
Some of the photographs showed women being shot in the head or hanged by former Taliban executioners, while another showed two women in head-to-toe burkas being beaten.
“Violence is wrong in all its forms, especially the encouragement by the Taliban of cowardly betrayal and the senseless murder of innocent civilians,” a screenshot from Afghan Pajhwok News showed the message as saying in English.
“The Afghan Security Forces are accountable to Allah and the Afghan people, and seek to restore peace as the foreigners leave the land,” it said.
Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told Reuters that the website was hacked around 12:30 am on Thursday and fixed in three hours, before being breached again at midday and put out of commission again. It was still being repaired on Friday
It serves no purpose except for propaganda, AND, raising funds.
I added a larger screencap of the full image at the bottom of the image above:

"And I think one of the things you learn about yourself as you get older are what are your strengths and what are your interests. And for me it’s other stuff that is not being the president. So I probably won’t run."
EAGnews.org EXCLUSIVE: Botched Gender Bender Day leads to Social Justice Week
"Gender Bender Day" sounds nasty, no wonder it wasn't well received.
Read the story at EAGnews.orgI am getting pretty sick of leftist using the Marxist code word, "Social Justice", for everything they deem wrong with our great country.
An EAGnews.org producer who attended the events interviewed Dean of Students Grace Moody, asking how such activities prepare students for higher education.
Moody explained that Social Justice Week came about after a botched "Gender Bender Day," held during Spirit Week in the fall. On that day, boys could dress like girls and vice versa, with the goal being to make the school more inclusive for students who struggle with their gender identity.
It backfired, resulting in the identity-questioning students feeling ridiculed. School leaders decided a full-blown Social Justice Week was warranted. Moody thought the school could handle it because Jones College Prep is "pretty hip and pretty progressive and pretty open-minded."

Are Muslims More Violent And Criminal?
Danish psychologist Nicolai Sennels wrote an essay on his conclusions after studying Muslim and non-Muslim youths at a Copenhagen youth prison. Sennels discovered a distinct difference between the two groups.
As a psychologist in Copenhagen's youth prison I had a unique chance to get insights into the culture and religion of Muslims and the causes for the violent behaviour and high crime rates among Muslim immigrants. My Muslim clients told me their stories from their families and communities, about life in their home countries, about their experiences with and views on non-Muslims and the Danish society. I had around 150 Muslim and 100 Danish clients on my couch. They all came from the same age group (12-17 years) and the two groups had on average the same social and economic background. Most of them were found guilty, but a large part also proved to be innocent. I thus had a very good opportunity to compare Muslims and non-Muslims psychologically.
The conclusion is that there are strong psychological differences between Muslims and non-Muslims. It is also clear that Muslim culture influences Muslims in a way that makes them more likely to become criminal and display anti-social behaviour - especially towards non-Muslims and non-Islamic authorities.
The report is long, but well worth the time. It covers different areas of the Muslim psyche and compares with non-Muslims from similar social environments. The conclusions are fascinating, if not surprising.

Isn't this the same move that kills a man after 5 heartbeats in Kill Bill?
April 19, a female scooter rider killed a man by squeezing his testicles for the packing dispute, in Haikou City, Hainan Province.
It was learned, the woman, 41 years old, rode on her scooter to an elementary school in Meilan District, Haikou City to pick up her child that day. When she wanted to pack her scooter in front of a shop, she was rejected by the shop owner, a 42-year-old male.
The two parties soon fell into a quarrel, and then the physical confrontation. [...]
During the fight, the middle aged woman manged to grab the man’s testicles, and squeezed them till he finally collapsed on the ground.
The man was immediately rushed to hospital, but unfortunately died there despite of efforts. (Source)
Operation Fast and Furious: Contempt of Congress Charges Drafted Against Holder(Correction)
As Katie Pavlich noted: "It's on"

UPDATE: House Oversight Committee said the "rumors" are untrue

#VetThePrez: Critical Race Theorist (Derrick Bell) Wrote Blurb in Dreams From My Father... After Request From Obama
Barack Obama’s association with radical Critical Race Theory professor Derrick Bell did not end after Harvard Law School--and certainly not at the April 24, 1990 rally at which Obama embraced Bell, literally and figuratively. Breitbart News has discovered a letter sent by Obama to Bell in February 1995 in which Obama asks Bell to review--and to blurb--an early version of Obama’s autobiography, then entitled Dreams of My Father.Breitbart News notes the 1st edition of the book, which is rare, has the blurb. Be sure to read it all.

Erik Stakelbeck covers Muslim Brotherhood in America Course launch

Al Shabaab Has Not Denied Rumors of Abu Mansoor Al-Amriki's (aka Omar Hammimi) Death
Earlier today a supposed statement by al-Shabaab was put out stating Hammimi was alive and well and stuff. But wait, was it really from al-Shabaab?
The problem with the AP report is that Somalimemo.net, the website that released the statement, is not an official Shabaab website. Abdulkadir M. Wa'ays, a former United Nations researcher and a leading authority on Shabaab who is based in Belgium, told The Long War Journal the following:Today, Howie spotted a video, dated yesterday, from Hammimi: Abu mansoor al-amriki A Quick Message. They just recycled one from a year ago.I can confirm to you that al-Shabaab had not issued any official statement on the matter as yet and that the AP is just using as [an official] Shabaab statement an opinion piece published by a pro-Shabaab Somali language website Somalimemo.net, which is not, BTW, al-Shabaab's official website as reported by the AP.[ More...]

It will also see the minimum age of marriage lowered to 14 and the ridding of women's rights of getting education and employment.

Senator James M. Inhofe (R-Okla.) Responds to EPA Apology For Using The Word Crucify..(Update-WH Press Conf)
[Update: Video of Carney questioned at the press conference today. The media was certainly trying to help their bud Obama out. The video is below the fold]
If you didn't read my post last night, the background on this is here
Also read Energy in Debth's background on EPA's Al Armendariz. Note, the article has since been updated to include Armendariz apology:
EID has followed closely the actions of EPA’s Region 6 office in Dallas, and specifically its decision to issue an endangerment order against Range Resources back in 2010 despite clear scientific evidence in contradiction of its charges (embarrassingly for the agency, EPA had to withdraw that order earlier this year). This includes pointing out how the Administrator for that office, Al Armendariz, gleefully emailed activists in the area (prior to the official announcement) that EPA was “about to make a lot of news” and that it was “time to Tivo channel 8.”Alinksy's Rules for Radicals at play.
That news, of course, was that EPA “determined” Range Resources had contaminated drinking water in Parker County, Texas. Local anti-shale activist Sharon Wilson cheerfully responded, “Hats off to the new Sheriff and his deputies!”[...]
One of Armendariz’s original claims to fame — or infamy, perhaps — was his paper in 2009, which found that “the oil and gas sector likely has greater emissions than motor vehicles” in the five counties comprising the Dallas-Fort Worth region (“emissions,” in this case, referred to nitrogen oxides [NOx] and volatile organic compounds [VOCs]). That paper, written while Armendariz was a professor at Southern Methodist University, was widely celebrated by activists, who — possibly as a “thank you” to the professor — actively pushed for Armendariz to be appointed Administrator of EPA’s Region VI office. Upon assuming office, groups like the Sierra Club celebrated, calling it “great news” because the industry was “having an ‘oh sh–’ moment” about the appointment Other shale opponents, including area resident Sharon Wilson, appeared happily in pictures with Armendariz.
To this day, opposition groups still cite the talking point that oil and gas production generates more emissions than all the cars and trucks in the DFW region, a claim that ultimately gets traced back to Armendariz’s paper.

Shaima Alawadi's Husband and Children Back in the US
The family of an Iraqi-American woman fatally beaten in her El Cajon home continues to wait for answers a month after her slaying.I doubted that Kassim Alhimidi would even return to the US.
El Cajon police have not announced any arrests or named any suspects in the killing of Shaima Alawadi, 32. The mother of five died a few days after she was found unconscious with a head injury in the dining room of her Skyview Street home on March 21.
Her sister Esmah Alawadi said Monday that the family continues to call detectives looking for updates but is told the case remains under investigation.
“We have not been sleeping at night. It’s 24 hours talking about it,” said Alawadi, who lives in Texas. “It’s restless. The only thing we want is justice now. We lost her, at least her kids (need to) know that (police) will take care of the person who did it.”
Shaima Alawadi’s husband and the couple’s two older children are back home in El Cajon after spending about two weeks in Iraq for the burial and to mourn with relatives. Alawadi’s father is a Shia cleric in Iraq.
It says that only the two elder children returned. I assume that means the eldest daughter Fatima who was at home during when Shaima was killed and the eldest son Muhammad.

Senator James M. Inhofe (R-Okla.) to Investigate EPA's Crucify Them Strategy
Update: Forbes has a excellent read for background on this: EPA Official Not Only Touted 'Crucifying' Oil Companies, He Tried It Also read Energy in Debt's article showing Armendariz link to environmentalists
EPA's website, Area 6, fear mongering order against Range Resources. No proof, just one citizen complaining. Oh, Al Armendariz apologized last night for his comment. Too late beotch.
Lengthy, but well worth the watch:
In a speech on the Senate floor, Senator James M. Inhofe (R-Okla.), Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, announces that he has launched an investigation into the Obama-EPA's apparent "crucify them" strategy targeted at American energy producers. This investigation will look into EPA's actions towards domestic energy production specifically in light of the agency's recent efforts relating to hydraulic fracturing.
Inhofe's announcement today follows several questionable statements from top EPA officials, including comments released in a little-watched video from 2010, which reveals EPA Region VI Administrator Al Armendariz admitting that EPA's "general philosophy" is to "crucify" and "make examples" of oil and gas companies.

Islamic Circle of North American Still Supporting Terrorism
I've excerpted the following from the Investigative Project, but have taken the quotes out of order to show the timeline of events.
At the 2009 ICNA conference, one of the key note speakers was Egyptian Islamist Ragheb Elsergany. In his speech, he explicitly endorsed terrorist activities and groups. In response, many organizations condemned Elsergany's remarks. The ICNA claimed the speaker's endorsement of terrorism did not represent the group's views.
But if the ICNA was as shocked and appaled at the remarks as they claim, then how come they invited him back as a keynote speaker to the same conference in 2011? Oh, and they're repeating the "we're all shocked" claim that they made two years earlier:
In 2009, Elsergany explicitly endorsed jihad and told Muslims it is their duty to help finance it.Read the rest.
"It is required to act in ways to please Allah, and one of the greatest of them is jihad in the way of Allah, and one of the greatest of them is supporting the fighters, and the mujahideen [Islamic warriors] and the besieged, and those in need there in Palestine," he said in an Arabic session entitled "The Gaza Struggle." ....
While one-time extremist statements might be viewed as a fluke, Elsergany was at the center of controversy for ICNA's 2009 conference, for making similar comments....
In response, ICNA claimed that the inflammatory rhetoric was unexpected and not representative of the rest of the conference....
But not only did ICNA invite Elsergany back, his picture was featured in a scrolling montage of speakers on the conference website's home page....
At the group's latest conference last December, Egyptian Islamist Ragheb Elsergany envisioned a day soon when "all of Palestine" would be liberated. Elsergany said the rise of Islamist governments in the Middle East and North Africa was clearing the way for "the Zionist entity" to "vanish absolutely."
The ICNA, like many Islamic organizations, loves to condemn terrorism. But they define terrorism in such a way that Jews can never be victims and therefore any one that kills them isn't a terrorist.

Work Related Accident Kills Lebanon's Most Wanted Terrorist ... In Syria
I'm not totally down on the Syrian uprising. Next to Iran, the Assad regime stands out as the foremost state sponsor of terror in the region. Without Syria, there is no Hezbollah.
But let's not kid ourselves about who the Syrian resistance are. If the Assad regime falls everything will not be peachy keen:
Abdel-Ghani Jawhar, Lebanon's most wanted militant Islamist terrorist, has been killed while planting bombs for the rebel movement in Syria, raising fresh concerns about the growing influence of radicals in the opposition to the Assad regime....All is not well in Syria.
According to one report, he blew himself up when a bomb he was preparing detonated prematurely.
He was the head of Fatah-al-Islam, a militant group that had fought the official Lebanese army and other militias. It is alleged to have loose ties with al-Qaeda, and is certainly part of a wider network of militant Sunni groups whose involvement in the Syrian opposition has alarmed not only potential western backers but also the opposition itself.
Smearing Zuhdi Jasser On Twitter
This is an older article from Free Beacon regarding Jasser's appointment to the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom.
A coalition of far-left American Muslim groups are waging a coordinated media campaign to smear Zuhdi Jasser, a prominent Muslim interfaith leader with moderate views and a pro-democracy outlook.A Muslim Brotherhood member and editor at Ikhwanweb, enjoys smearing Dr Jasser on twitter:
Jasser, the founder and president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, a pro-Muslim, pro-American advocacy group, was recently appointed by Sen. Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) to the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), an advisory body that aims to increase religious freedom.
Soon after Jasser’s March appointment to USCIRF, controversial Muslim groups—such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the Muslim Public Affairs Council—launched a crusade to tarnish Jasser’s reputation within the Muslim community[More...]
Yesterday, I posted about him here
Hazem Malky, 36 -- a self-described "certified Twitter addict" who previously tweeted prolifically @hazemmalky publicly, but recently locked his account to avoid "hate-tweets" -- is an editor at Ikhwanweb and *medical doctor by training. Currently based in New York, he also prefers to use a pseudonym, citing worries over "Zionist elements" and the United States government
Interesting tweets/retweets he has, I might add. One linked to an article regarding Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood aka Freedom and Justice party "visiting" Washington. The title? Successful Invasion of the Muslim Brotherhood in Washington. The article is in Arabic and my first thought was goolish translate didn't translate the word correctly. Not so, one commenter didn't seem too pleased with the title.
This evil Zionist has a couple more screencaps from Hazem Malky, who hides his identity and lives in New York:
No surprise the Muslim Brotherhood is smearing Dr Jasser, aren't they really behind all the smears?

Was America Conned in the Shaima Alawadi Murder Case?
At the time of this murder by a supposed white Islamophobe in El Cajon, California, on the other side of America the shooting death of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman was triggering widespread anger among African Americans.Do bears you know.
However, the bubble soon burst. A police report said the attacker was not a white male, but “a skinny dark-skinned male” who was seen running from the area of Alawadi’s house on the morning of the murder.
Then it was disclosed the murdered woman was seeking a divorce. Instead of a hate crime, the possibility of an honour killing was now being considered.
The Muslim groups have since gone into full retreat. Their latest campaign is to ensure “honour killing” does not appear in the media, but rather “domestic violence.”

Currently based in New York, he also prefers to use a pseudonym, citing worries over "Zionist elements" and the United States government.

Abdo and the two officers were in an elevator in the Waco Federal Building when he bit completely through his lip and then spat what one source said was a significant amount of blood on the two officers.
The incident happened after U.S. District Judge Walter Smith ruled that Abdo’s confession is admissible.

Good News: War on Terror Officially Over
If it's over, then to paraphrase Han Solo why don't we blow this thing and go home?
"The war on terror is over," one senior State Department official who works on Mideast issues told me. "Now that we have killed most of al Qaida, now that people have come to see legitimate means of expression, people who once might have gone into al Qaida see an opportunity for a legitimate Islamism."Legitimate Islamism. I'm wondering exactly what that would look like? Because if we care about the basic rights of people, then not even moderate Islamism is a goal worthy of pursuing.
If we're going to declare the war on terror over, maybe someone should tell our opponents.

For some reason still unknown, Twitter suspended the group’s account. They’ve tried to get answers about the cause of the suspension. But no replies.

Lying at the NY Times About Domestic Terrorism
****sticky, scroll for newer****
Andrew F. March has an editorial at the NY Times in which he bemoans the conviction of Tarek Mehanna. In it he claims that Mehanna's prosecution was nothing more than an unconstitutional attack against free speech. That Mehanna had been convicted of speech crimes, or worse, "thought crimes".
Nothing could be further from the truth.
Mehanna was tried and convicted for material aid to a terrorist organization. In this case, that aid was in the translating of material for and in behalf of al Qaeda. Yes, translation is a form of speech, but in the case of al Qaeda it is, in fact, also material support.
What March would have us believe is that the First Amendment of the Constitution protects speech openly advocating violence against American soldiers engaged in an actual shooting war.
That there is legal precedent to such thinking there is no doubt. I've never accused the Supreme Court nor the legal profession in general of clear thinking.
But at some point a legal argument leaves the realm of slippery slope sophistry and becomes an out and out lie. For instance, take March's justification of Mehanna's major work of translation on behalf of al Qaeda, "39 Ways to Serve and Participate in Jihad". In it, he makes the incredible claim that:
The text in fact shows Muslims numerous ways to help fellow Muslims suffering in their own lands, without engaging in violence.[emphasis mine]Obviously Mr. March hasn't actually read the text. I happen to have a copy of it in front of me. Here's what it actually says:
So, the Muslims today are left with no choice but that of Jihad and the language of weaponry...Mehanna translated this. I could quote literally hundreds of similar passages advocating violent jihad from the document. The gist of the document is that violent jihad is an obligation on Muslims. Any Muslim that does not support this violent jihad must have a very good reason. And those who do not actually take up arms are under an obligation to finance jihad.
So, iron is not to be fought except with iron, and force is not to be met except
There is no solution except for the greatest Jihad * World peace no longer satisfies us,
There is no peace for the enemy. This is a legislation * and belief in every Muslim heart....
To claim otherwise, as March does, is simply a lie.
Further, Mehanna did not simply translate some scholarly work. He did so for and behalf of at Tibyan publications for the express purpose of recruiting and inciting others to join organizations such as al Qaeda and the Taliban.
Context matters. At Tibyan shares membership with al Qaeda. It cannot be viewed as a separate organization. Al Qaeda has several related media organizations. For instance, their media production arm is called "As Sahab". Their distribution network is called "al Fajr".
At Tibyan was founded as a means of supporting al Qaeda with a translation arm. Mehanna knew this. He intended to recruit people for violent jihad. Which is why he first got in trouble with law enforcement: his buddy had just gone off to violent jihad, and Mehanna lied about it to them.
Moreover, Mehanna was not some lone wolf radical. He was an integral node in a global jihadist movement that recruited Muslims in the West for jihad in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Somalia. March fails to mention his connections to real world terrorists when he argues that Mehanna's case doesn't rise to the level of 'material support' as defined in the Holder v. Humanitarian Law Project (2010) decision.
Mehanna worked for an organization, at Tibyan. That organization may be virtual, but in the 21st century physical proximity is no longer a defining characteristic of organization. And at Tibyan was really connected to al Qaeda. Mehanna knew this. He knew actual terrorists. This is not some abstract connect-the-dots relationship either: He actually knew them.
Like who? Mehanna knew Daniel Maldanoda, who went to Somalia to join al Shabaab, and lied to the FBI about it. Mehanna knew Samir Khan, who went to Yemen to join al Qaeda where he was killed. Mehanna knew Ahmad Abousamra, who fled to Syria after being questioned by the FBI. It is also likely that Mehanna knew dozens of other internet jihadis turned real-life jihadis.
Mehanna's words literally led to others committing crimes. In fact, this was his intention. Which I think is the very definition of unprotected speech under the Brandenburg standard.
He was not advocating violence in the abstract, now was he advocating support of some hypothetical jihad. He advocated very specific acts of violence against US soldiers, and he did so in the context of those soldiers engaging in actual warfare on an actual battlefield. And many of his readers took that advice to heart, and went on to actually fight.
But if March and the NY Times have their way, then any support of al Qaeda short of actually taking up arms would be legal. What would we say, then, of an Osama bin Laden or Ayman al-Zawahiri, who actually have never fired a shot but who's role in the organization is simply encouraging others to do the fighting and dying? Under their standard, would the propaganda produced by Joseph Goebbels now be considered protected speech?
Tarek Mahanna is no martyr for the First Amendment, he was a warrior for the global jihad. That a warrior may use the pen rather than the sword is simply a fact of modern warfare. Any one disputing this is living in a fantasy world.

"It hardly inspires the public confidence that a white 20-something can obtain the ballot of the first black Attorney General." - Rep. Trent Franks
"I'm shocked that the Attorney General isn't shocked. I'm shocked that the Attorney General hasn't offered a response to this in a meaningful way... It took James O'Keefe to get this ACORN issue brought before America." - Rep. Steve King

TUESDAY, APRIL 24: The Muslim Brotherhood in America (A 10-Part Course by Frank Gaffney)
Losing the Jihadists' War on America[read it all]
COMING TUESDAY, APRIL 24 at http://muslimbrotherhoodinamerica.com
Have you wondered why, for over ten years -- despite countless man-years spent waiting in airport security lines, over a trillion dollars spent, the loss of thousands of lives in wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and endless efforts to ensure that no offense is given to seemingly permanently aggrieved Islamist activists --we are no closer to victory in the so-called "war on terror" than we were on 9/11?
The missing answer and its online location will be unveiled on Tuesday, April 24 in a new web-based, ten-part video course presented by Frank Gaffney, President of the Center for Security Policy.
Washington, D.C., April 23, 2012 At a press conference on Tuesday, April 24th, Center for Security Policy President Frank Gaffney and two former top leaders of the U.S. intelligence community will address a question millions of Americans have pondered: Why, despite more than ten years of efforts – involving, among other things, the loss of thousands of lives in wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, well-over a trillion dollars spent, countless man-years wasted waiting in airport security lines and endless efforts to ensure that no offense is given to seemingly permanently aggrieved Islamist activists – are we no closer to victory in the so-called “war on terror” than we were on 9/11? In fact, such a prospect is becoming more remote by the day--and no one seems able to explain the reason why. The missing answer will be revealed tomorrow at the National Press Club at 9:30 a.m. with the unveiling of a new web-based, ten-part video course called “The Muslim Brotherhood in America: The Enemy Within,” presented by Mr. Gaffney. He will be joined on the occasion of this roll-out by the co-leaders of Team B II, the group of 19 national security professionals and other experts who published in November 2010 the highly acclaimed analysis, Shariah: The Threat to America:I'm looking forward to watching this.

Two U.S. Marines vs. Two Burglars
(Jacksonville, North Carolina)
Two Camp Lejeune Marines returned home early Sunday morning to find two men in their house. The intruders didn't make it out of the house alive.Heh, crime doesn't pay.
33-year-old, Maurice Skinner and 33-year-old, Diego Everette were identified by police as the men killed in the burglary attempt. Both men are from Jacksonville.
Skinner and Everette were pronounced dead at the scene, but according to Jacksonville Police Chief, Mike Yaniero it is unlikely that anyone will be charged in the shooting.
"The investigation is ongoing, however at this time there is no evidence to suggest that criminal charges be filed."

Gas Speculation is Good
The president's proposal calls for an extra $52 million dollars in funding to expand the scope of government oversight, which would include hiring more "cops on the beat," expanding enforcement authority, upgrading technology regulators need to track complex oil markets, and increasing penalties for speculators found guilty of manipulating oil markets illegally, a senior white house official told reporters.As Rusty says Obama is prone to drag up little issues to distract from large ones.
Traders would also have to cough up their own cash to back trades, in essence requiring them to have more skin in the game and hopefully reducing volatility--and price spikes--in oil markets.
First of all gas is not expensive because of speculation. Gas is high first of all due to Obama's poor foreign policy. Tensions and unrest in much of the middle east and the stand off between Iran and Israel create uncertainty, uncertainty = higher prices. Another reason is that we are exporting large quantities of refined fuel to South America. They have demand and are willing to pay top dollar for fuel. They will probably get smart and increase their refining capacity but until then its a free market.
Other factors include devaluation of the dollar and Obama's domestic energy policy. Although those are the longer term pressures work to make a bursting fuel price bubble unlikely.
Speculation is the reason that supply is always available. There is always a willing seller if the price is right.
The only provision that is even arguable is the margin requirement. That investors are required to put up more of their own money and use less borrowed capital. O'Reilly was for this and points to it being one of the few things in which he agrees with Obama administration. In this case Bill and Obama are both wrong.
The only way this is helpful is if we are in gas bubble. If gas prices should suddenly fall rapidly an investor might lose not only his money he might not be able to sell his commodity for enough to even cover his loans. You get the picture, big banks could lose money. The investor could lose his ass.
Of course the administration obviously thinks the risk of gas prices falling rapidly are slim to none. Especially since they do so much to insure they remain high. So why mess with the margins? Because it plays well in focus groups where investors are painted as the evil 1%.
But again the same forces that guarantee supply by adding a few cents to price are also the same forces that will save consumers money if and when gas prices begin to fall. Fewer gas speculators will mean fewer losers rushing to sell ahead of a falling price. This will artificially support a falling price above the natural bottom of the cycle.
The best option, rather than to set up straw man demons to trot before the electorate, is to let the markets work. And the markets are working. Prices are falling slightly because consumers have been forced to lower demand by higher prices. Once that trend of a falling price becomes evident speculators will help push the price down further by selling their fuel commodities. Then consumers will start to tick up demand a bit. And the whole process starts over again.
Elect a competent president with a better foreign policy that reduces international tensions and prices will fall even further.
The free market is the best guarantor of supply when you need it and also the best way to balance demand with available supply. Tinkering with this might be politically popular but it won't help consumers. Its also the best regulator against foolish over investing when the electric fence of losing your ass asserts its consequences.
I don't like high prices much myself and I for one look forward winning on cheaper gas at the expense of those who sold too late.

Pakistani Boy Abused to Death at Madrassa
The death of a 12-year-old student reported to have been tortured to death by his Quran teacher in Lahore has prompted the Punjab chief minister to call for an inquiry into the incident.Religion of something something.....
Mohammad Jamil was a madrassa student where he was studying the Quran from Qari Muhammad Jameel and a teacher whose name remains unknown.
The young boy is said to have been tortured by his teachers so severely that he was taken to four different hospitals by his parents for treatment for stomach pain but eventually died according to a report in the Express Tribune on Sunday.
The boy’s father registered a case with the police which raided the madrassa looking for the teachers, both of whom are said to have escaped.
He blames the teachers for the torture and the doctors for negligence in his son’s treatment.
Reports of abuse in Pakistan’s madrassas (religious schools) are not uncommon.
Last year police raided a madrassa in Karachi and found a dozen boys chained in the basement, deprived of food and forced to join the Taliban reported the Los Angeles Times in December.
Earlier this month, three students of a madrassa in Kabirwala, all under the age of five, were abused by their teacher for plucking flowers at the school gardens reported the Express Tribune.

Going by the code name "Cyber Terrorist," the hacker also attacked a site belonging to the Danish cartoonists who drew cartoons of the Muslim prophet Mohammed.

Bailed Out BofA Drops Gun Company For Political Reasons?
McMillan Group posted this Thursday on their Facebook page
McMillan Fiberglass Stocks, McMillan Firearms Manufacturing, McMillan Group International have been collectively banking with Bank of America for 12 years. Today Mr. Ray Fox, Senior Vice President, Market Manager, Business Banking, Global Commercial Banking came to my office. He scheduled the meeting as an “account analysis” meeting in order to evaluate the two lines of credit we have with them. He spent 5 minutes talking about how McMillan has changed in the last 5 years and have become more of a firearms manufacturer than a supplier of accessories.The above image says a lot, does BofA really believe gun owners are going to come guns a blazin? Gawd.
At this point I interrupted him and asked “Can I possible save you some time so that you don’t waste your breath? What you are going to tell me is that because we are in the firearms manufacturing business you no longer what my business.”
“That is correct” he says.
I replied “That is okay, we will move our accounts as soon as possible. We can find a 2nd Amendment friendly bank that will be glad to have our business. You won’t mind if I tell the NRA, SCI and everyone one I know that BofA is not firearms industry friendly?”
“You have to do what you must” he said.
“So you are telling me this is a politically motivated decision, is that right?”
Mr Fox confirmed that it was. At which point I told him that the meeting was over and there was nothing let for him to say.
I think it is import for all Americans who believe in and support our 2nd amendment right to keep and bear arms should know when a business does not support these rights. What you do with that knowledge is up to you. When I don’t agree with a business’ political position I can not in good conscience support them. We will soon no longer be accepting Bank of America credit cards as payment for our products.

Flashback January of this year[Malkin]
Well, isn't this rich? And I do mean rich. President Obama, man of the people, will deliver his presidential nomination acceptance speech at the Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, N.C. -- so that Democratic Party fundraisers can reward big donors with skyboxes and other lavish perks.Nice!!
As usual, the White House and its allies are trying to camouflage naked partisan money-grubbing in populist garb.
Back to the present: The Operations Director of the McMillan Group, Kelly McMillan, spoke to the Daily Caller:
Operations director Kelly McMillan told the Daily Caller that his company has never been late on a payment and has never bounced a check. The debt outstanding on its line of credit is at 61 percent.Also, Bob Owens has more on this:
But at the bank’s request, he said, the McMillan group of companies would soon be paying off its credit line and closing its accounts.[More...[
.......McMillan products are of particular import in Afghanistan and in Iraq, where snipers and designated marksmen armed with long-range precision rifles performed (and still perform) vital scouting and overwatch functions protecting maneuver units. The extended range of these weapons allows forces to engage with and destroy enemy forces before they are in range to accurately fire against American soldiers and Marines.AllahP also posted about this last night.....must read I might add..
Per McMillan’s statement, a politically partisan bank has severed the lines of credit to a company important to our national security. This act has likely added difficulty to the company’s ability to operate, to research product improvements, and to deliver products on time. Bank of America’s stance — especially if this signals a new policy regarding dealing with all arms manufacturers — could potentially effect the readiness of American soldiers in combat zones and the operational efficiency of some of America’s most highly trained and effective units.
Bank of America was the recipient of well over 100 billion dollars in federal money. They are also one of just two vendors processing payments for Barack Obama’s 2012 presidential campaign, employing a system that disables safeguards against illegal foreign donations. Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina, is the site of the Democratic Nation Convention in September.
This is at least the third time Bank of America has implemented a discriminatory policy against gun manufacturers. In early 2001, a scandal erupted over the bank’s attempt to discriminate against another Arizona-based company. The resulting public outrage forced a reversal of the policy.

Fiction: Romney's Grandfather was Polygamist
Fact: Obama's Father was Polygamist
You gotta love it when the Democrats try accusing Mitt Romney of being the grandson of a polygamist, which isn't true, when the fact is that Obama's father was one:
Mitt Romney's grandparents, Gaskell and Anna Romney, however, were not among them. They wed in 1895, and it was the only marriage for each of them. You have to go back three generations, to Gaskell's father, Miles Park Romney (1843-1904), to find a polygamous ancestor of Mitt Romney....Bwahahahahaaaa!
[Barack] Obama's father ... was also polygamous in keeping with local custom, taking an informal Kenyan wife who preceded Obama's mother but remained a consort, according to accounts by local people and the senator himself.
Great News: FBI Stops Sharing Terror Intel w/ Local Law Enforcement
UPDATE: FBI Reverses
Without making a public or private announcement, the FBI has ended critical intelligence sharing with all 77 law enforcement fusion centers nationwide. This policy was implemented less than two days after a top FBI official told Congress about the FBI’s extensive efforts to share intelligence with state and local partners.I repeat: WTF!!???!!!???!!!!
On Monday, a state fusion center official told PJ Media:
"The FBI has effectively put us out of business. We are right back to September 10." [READ THE REST]
Seriously, this hast to be wrong. Read the whole thing. If this is true, we have essentially taken local law enforcement out of the CT loop.
UPDATE 5/21/2012 AM: After I first linked to the PJM article a friend of mine who actually works in a Fusion Center wrote me and said that as far as she knew the FBI was still going to provide them with info.
It wasn't clear to me, though, whether the specific form of intel was still going to be forthcoming. Namely, the Personal Information Intelligence reports.
But I heard back from Patrick Poole over that the coverage of the new policy of not sharing critical information with local law enforcement had been reversed:
On a conference call this afternoon, the FBI announced a reversal of its decision to cut off the intelligence sharing of information from the Terrorist Screening Center (TSC). The FBI shut down reporting to the 77 fusion centers on March 1, and PJM reported on the shutdown yesterday.Great news! It's also heartening to see that we bloggers can actually have an impact still.
The FBI had announced that that it would be resuming the TSC reporting this coming Monday, but without the Personal Information Intelligence (PII) that fusion centers had previously had access to (as I updated on the article yesterday afternoon). Fusion center officials had said yesterday that resuming the TSC reports without the PII would be “effectively useless.”
As recently as Wednesday, FBI officials were telling fusion centers and congressional staffers that PII would not be included in the resumed reporting. Two days and one PJ Media exclusive report later, and the FBI had completely changed course. It remains to be seen if the reporting is as the FBI represented it will be when it resumes on Monday.
Presumably, someone at FBI headquarters made this decision but had hoped the new policy would be implemented quietly. They didn't get their wish.

Tahrir Square: The people want Hazem Abu Ismail, Hazem will rip out America's fangs!
The peaceful protesters where demonstrating against the disqualification of Salafist presidential candidate Hazem Abu-Ismail.
"You need to get a lot louder, because I can't hear you at all. Now, let's try it again: Hazem will rip out America's fangs!" His brow shiny with sweat, the man lowers his microphone and smiles broadly as the response comes — from the entire square, it seems. A few more rounds of call and response and the chant suddenly changes. For a few surreal moments, the only thing that can be heard in Tahrir is, "The people want Hazem Abu Ismail."The unnamed flag in the above image:
Abu Ismail is a former contestant in the presidential race whose recent disqualification by the Presidential Elections Commission has raised the tempers of his wide constituency.
Snaking through the crowd is a procession of ten bearded youth, hoisting black flags that read "Mohamed is God's prophet" and "The Quran is our constitution." A young man runs up to them to take a picture. From his neck dangles a laminated card promoting the FJP'[Muslim Brotherhood's party...ed]presidential candidate Mohamed Morsy, but carrying a picture of their excluded former frontrunner Khairat al-ShaterThis old man is not happy with this "group':
At least one person is unhappy with the day's outcome. An elderly man slaps his palms together and shakes his head as he watches an Abu Ismail supporter continue to rile up the massive crowd. "What are we doing? What are those people doing?" he turns to ask this reporter. Not waiting for an answer, he turns around and addresses a large group of veiled women repeating the endless stream of pro-Hazem chants. "Is this what you wanted?" he asks one of them.Oh well, to bring up what the flag represents would lead to speaking about their native son, Al Qaeda #1 - Ayman al-Zawahiri.
"Yes," she replies without hesitation. "I'm not ashamed to say I want what's right."
The old man gawks at her momentarily, and then pushes past this reporter, muttering, "Yeah, because Hazem started the revolution, didn't he, you dumb bitch."
pffft I will just call the flag Charlie Brown, you know, to play along...

Hamid Karzai Suddenly Making Loads of Sense
Ever since Obama decided that his "surge" in Afghanistan should be composed of half as many troops needed to actually get the job done, I've been vacillating on whether we should stay or go. On the one hand, loosing a war to the Taliban would be disastrous for our foreign policy for decades to come. On the other hand, if we aren't fighting to win then what's the point?
But now? If our alleged "ally" in Afghanistan wants us out, then it's time we get out:
President Hamid Karzai said Thursday that a speeded-up departure of Western troops from his country is the only way to prevent a recurrence of "painful experiences" such as the sight of American soldiers posing with the body parts of dead insurgents.Yeah, I'd hate for Afghans to have to go through the "pain" of looking at a picture of a dead guy next to an infidel.
What about the pain of those American soldiers wounded fighting for your country? Or the pain of an American soldier's wife or child who won't ever see their father or husband again because he died fighting for your country?
If the Afghans are going to act like children -- who feign outrage every time a photo of a dead guy appears but not over the dead suicide bomber trying to kill people -- or savages -- who feign outrage over a book being burned -- then maybe we should give them their wish and let them take over full responsibility for their own fate.
But, here's the warning. Should you fail to keep the Taliban or other like minded people from taking over, then all bets are off. If that should happen, then it's carpet bombing time.
I'm sick of our guys dying over there for people who are only slightly less bad then the alternative.
And yes, I know we aren't fighting for them. I know we're over there fighting for us. I think fighting for us is always a good idea.
But at some point you have to weigh the costs of re-invading the country against the costs of occupying it indefinitely.
Somewhere around 2009 I think we crossed the magic threshold where it became obvious that this whole nation building exercise was futile and where it just becomes less expensive in terms of both blood and treasure to plan on annihilating the country every 20 years.
AQIM Set to Claim Victory in Prisoner Swap for Prisoner Who Was Already Set to be Released
A prominent jihadi on twitter claims that a woman convicted in Germnany of helping the al Qaeda linked Islamic Jihad Union is being released. German news sources confirm the report.
Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) had demanded the release of Filiz Gelowicz, who goes by the jihadi name Umm Sayfullah al-Ansari , in exchange for the release of hostage Edgar Fritz Raupach. This is from the message released from AQIM:
We demand that you release the sister ‘Umm Sayf Allah Al-Ansariya’ from prison and compensate her financially for the damages she faced due to your injustices, and award her the freedom whether to stay [in Germany] or receive political asylum in a country that protects her rights and dignity. And in exchange for that we will release your citizen.Umm Sayfullah was part of the Saurland Group which planned to blow up US bases in Germany. Her husband had gone to Pakisstan to receive terror training from the IJU.
AQIM only made those demands last month. But the deal is she was set to be freed on parole this month anyway.
In other words, they demanded the release of a prisoner who was already set to be released.
For once, it looks like this "prisoner swap" might actually work out to our advantage.
Thanks to Aaron Zelin for clarifying that for me.

Amal Abdulfattah al-Sadah, 29, wed Osama at the age of 17 as she wanted a "holy warrior" husband, supported his war on the West and went on the run with him after 9/11....
In an interview Al-Sadah's brother Zakaria Al-Sadah said: "We would definitely like to live in the UK - we have nothing against the UK or its people. Amal would migrate there if given a chance.
"She loves humanity and likes to live in a liberal environment. She is not an extremist.

3 Arrested at Heathrow on Suspicions of Terrorism
LONDON — Three men have been arrested at Heathrow Airport and held on suspicion of “possessing articles and documents with intent to use them for terrorist purposes overseas,” the police said on Friday.What might those "articles & documents" be?
The suspects, residents of Britain’s second-largest city, Birmingham, were arrested Thursday night as they arrived from Oman. The police did not release their names.

Possible Motive in Shaima Alawadi Murder
I read this on Huffington Post yesterday. Shaima Alawadi's daughter Fatima was involved in an incident where she jumped out of her mom's car after being caught with a boy. Its also known that Fatima wanted to marry this boy who turns out to be an Iraqi Chaldean Christian against the wishes of her family who had arranged for her to marry someone else.
The person who witnessed the incident and called police also wrote an online posting about it on a website before Shaima Alawadi was murdered.
Huffpo: When college student Enrique Cervantes wrote an essay about seeing two people having sex in a car in front of his house, he never expected that it might shed light on a murder investigation.This sheds a whole new light on possible motive and highlights the folly of allowing Shaima's husband to leave the country for Iraq. Kassim Alhimidi took his son and his daughter Fatima with him to Iraq. He told CAIR he would return within two weeks of his wife's funeral. Its already been more than two weeks and no Kassim.
However, that story -- submitted as part of an oral history of El Cajon, a city just east of San Diego -- may help explain the murder of Iraqi refugee Shaima Alawadi, and offer a possible motive for her family members.
A few months after the vehicle incident and two months prior to Alawadi's death, Cervantes wrote about seeing Alhimidi in the car for SoSayWeAll.com, a San Diego-based nonprofit that is currently collecting "a people's history of East San Diego County."
Cervantes said he saw two people having sex in front of his house in the middle of the day and called the police.
Before police arrived, Cervantes went to the car to warn them and saw a teenage girl in a hijab with a man who looked to be in his early 20s. His piece describes the encounter:The guy saw me coming and adjusted his pants. The girl pulled a blanket over her legs and smiled, her cheeks blossoming into red. What the f***, I almost said out loud. She was wearing one of those things on her head that Muslims wear. It was light purple; it looked nice on her skin. Her skin was brown as mine. It looked nice with that shade of purple, like an Egyptian princess.
I for one doubt he will return of his own free will and its likely that his story will play sympathetically to the Iraqis should he be indicted. Getting extradition will be a challenge.
Also Fatima Alawadi is in danger. ts likely that Kassim will stand to benefit financially from the arranged marriage of 17 year old Fatima, who is quickly approaching the age of consent, wants to marry the Chaldean Christian, Yacub.
Besides forced marriage against her will its also possible that Fatima's virginity or lack thereof could become an issue. We already know there may have already been one honor killing in the family, no?
The previous story of a hate crime against Muslims because of a note at the crime scene that was parroted by CAIR and many media outlets gave cover for Hassim to leave the country.
Where is CAIR and all those media outlets now? They are suddenly silent.

Heartbreak: Multiple Unconfirmed Sightings of Abu Mansoor Al-Amriki (aka Omar Hammimi)
Somalia Report claims that Hammimi was sighted going to prayers Tuesday at the Jama ul_Qadeem mosque near Beera Xuriyada. He was under arrest and heavily guarded according to the reports.
The reports are by word of mouth and no photos or videos were available to lend more credibility.
If this is the case its quite unusual, al-Shabaab is known for quick deliberations and even quicker carrying out of sentences by the Sura Council. Usually always ending in the quick death or dismemberment of someone.
Ex-Federal Officials Investigated After Advocating For Terror Group
Companies representing former FBI Director Louis Freeh and former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Hugh Shelton have received federal subpoenas as part of a Treasury Department investigation into the source of payments to ex-federal officials who openly advocated for removing an Iranian dissident group from the State Department’s terror list, sources told NBC News.Nothing to see here, move along..
The Treasury Department also sent a subpoena to a speaking company for former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, an MSNBC contributor, who made $160,000 throughout 2011 for appearing at conferences and rallies in places like Paris, Brussels and Geneva.
Federal investigators are looking to see if these officials took payments from the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (MEK), a designated terrorist group, and thereby violating federal law barring financial dealings with terrorist groups, NBC’s Michael Isikoff reported.

Another Truther at MSNBC
There are very few things in life dumber than 9/11 trutherism and few widespread conspiracy theories as despicable. So, why would MSNBC employ a Truther as the go-to guy on all things race related?
On September 7th, 2009, Touré sent the following tweets about the incident.And this isn't all in the past, Toure and Piers Morgan of CNN are currently going back and forth on twitter over the subject.
“Van Jones was forced to resign partly bc questions the truth of 9/11 but that Pentagon attack is really fishy…”
“How could a plane crash into the Pentagon? And not appear on video cameras?? And leave little wreckage??? #Don’tbuyitfiremenow.”
“This fascinating video raises questions about the Pentagon attack: 757 or missle? http://bit.ly/12AOlN”
The tweets didn’t get Touré canned from his job as “idea writer” at Time or commentator at MSNBC.
So, why hasn't Toure been fired? It seems to me that this is another example of the Left's not-so subtle racism of lowered expectations.
A white guy says this: Fired! A black guy? Oh, we have to listen to what the "community" is saying or some such nonsense.
It's the same reason why MSNBC keeps a guy like Al Sharpton employed. He can get away with stuff that no white guy let alone a conservative of minority ethnicity would ever get away with.
Tell me why I'm wrong? I'd really like to believe something else is at work here.
#OWS Celebrates Holocaust Day w/ Antisemitic Cartoons
To give them their due, there are a lot of people in the comments pissed off about the picture. But, there are also 43 likes and 59 people sharing the photo (as of this writing).
So, is this a one-offer that we who already have a low opinion of the #OWS crowd use as "proof" of what we already "know"? Bad analysis based on a single case rather than a representative sample.
I'm thinking the latter, but I'll be the first to admit I'm more than a little bias.
But, I do have a reason for why I think a group like the #OWS crowd is much more likely to be filled with antisemites than, say, the Tea Party movement. Because fundamentally #OWS is premised on a conspiracy theory. That theory is that a small cabal of people -- those behind the "corporations" -- secretly manipulate the government and major institutions to their own advantage.
Sound familiar? Just add the word "Jews" to the mix and that, my friends, is the core belief of modern antisemitism.
Thanks to a member of the secret cabal.

Video: MA Man Openly Supports Terrorist
I spend a lot of time on this blog complaining about extremists on the internet. The vast majority of those extremists are Islamists. Of those, the vast majority will never actually kill any one, but they praise groups like al Qaeda that do.
Meet the right-wing equivalent of the eHadi fanboys of Osama bin Laden. His name is Kevin Forts, he's 23, and he's from Worcester, MA. And he thinks that the mass-murdering child killer Anders Behring Breivik is a hero.
I especially love how he claims that Breivik's act of terrorism was necessary but that it shouldn't be repeated. It sounds like about a thousand Islamists I've heard over the years saying pretty much the same thing. Just switch out Breivik's name for Osama bin Laden and the atrocity at Utoya for 9/11 and you've nailed the archetype.
I hope he gets his ass kicked and when he does, put me on the jury of the guy charged with assault.
Over at MilitaryPhotos someone reminded me that even Charles Manson has penpals. Which is true enough, but someone like this scares me at a little deeper level then your run of the mill schizo. There's something more disturbing about a sociopath with a cause then one without one.
Video: West African Taliban Act Pretty Much Like You'd Expect
The video is in French, but I think you'll get the picture from all of the shouts of Allahu akbar, indiscriminate firing of AK-47s into the air, and burning ... well, pretty much everything they could get their hands on.
You'd think that the burning of the African idols -- some of which may have some historic value -- would be the real cause of my outrage over this. You'd be wrong. It's when they desecrate the flag of California that my blood began to boil.
As much as I hate California, I'll always be a Californian at heart. I guess it's one of those things where it's okay for us to disparage the state, but not for the bloody Islamists. I hate these guys.
I think the comparisons between these al Qaeda linked militants in Mali and the Taliban are so patently obvious that they don't merit any lengthy discussion. But I will note one last thing before you watch the video: these guys are proud of their actions, they're doing this for the camera. So, enjoy the show!
Thanks to a guy on Twitter who I'm pretty sure will soon be at the uncomfortable end of a Predator drone strike.

Worst President Ever Number of the Day: $5,027,761,476,484.56
I guess people are beginning to take notice of my series of posts on Obama's record deficit spending. Either that, or great minds think alike. Probably the latter. But if I were the media God, I'd run these on a daily basis:
In the 39 months since Barack Obama took the oath of office as president of the United States, the federal government’s debt has increased by $5,027,761,476,484.56.Spread the word to every one you know.
Although he has served less than a term, Obama is now the first American president to see the federal government's debt increase by more than $5 trillion during his time in office.
Everything the President talks about -- everything -- is simply his efforts to distract you from this. Don't let him get away with it.
No sour grapes here, I'm happy the figures are getting some attention.
Holocaust Martyrs’ and Heroes’ Remembrance Day, 2012
Holocaust Martyrs’ and Heroes’ Remembrance Day (Yom Hashoah in Hebrew) is a national day of commemoration in Israel, on which the six million Jews murdered in the Holocaust are memorialised. It is a solemn day, beginning at sunset on the 27th of the month of Nisan (Today, April 18, 2012) and ending the following evening, according to the traditional Jewish custom of marking a day. Places of entertainment are closed and memorial ceremonies are held throughout the country.Never forget, never again.
The central ceremonies, in the evening and the following morning, are held at Yad Vashem and are broadcast on the television. Marking the start of the day – in the presence of the President of the State of Israel and the Prime Minister, dignitaries, survivors, children of survivors and their families, gather together with the general public to take part in the memorial ceremony at Yad Vashem in which six torches, representing the six million murdered Jews, are lit.
The following morning, the ceremony at Yad Vashem begins with the sounding of a siren for two minutes throughout the entire country. For the duration of the sounding, work is halted, people walking in the streets stop, cars pull off to the side of the road and everybody stands at silent attention in reverence to the victims of the Holocaust. Afterward, the focus of the ceremony at Yad Vashem is the laying of wreaths at the foot of the six torches, by dignitaries and the representatives of survivor groups and institutions. Other sites of remembrance in Israel, such as the Ghetto Fighters’ Kibbutz and Kibbutz Yad Mordechai, also host memorial ceremonies, as do schools, military bases, municipalities and places of work.

Advocating Murder of Every Single Jew on Earth Not Anti-Israel Enough For Media Matters' Eric Boehlert
Senior Fellow Eric Boehlert, one of the faces of the organization, has a dicey record when it comes to Israel and the Jews. On September 11, 2001, he wrote a piece for Salon.com defending American Muslims from the supposed anti-Muslim hysteria brewing. In that piece, he recounted a Muslim rally in Paterson, New Jersey:Hey the Koran says that every single Jew must die,. If you're not cool with that you're just a bigoted genocide-o-phobe."We won't rest until all the Jews are dead," said a burly young man. "Shame on America," said another bitter-faced youth. "For helping Israel to kill Palestinians," said a third.In the wake of the WTC attacks, however, those brash sentiments were muted.
“We won’t rest until all the Jews are dead” is not a “brash sentiment.” It is open genocidal anti-Semitism. But not to Eric Boehlert, apparently.

Truly Scary Statistic of the Day
Or, Why Democrats Really Are a Bunch of Moochers
Update: Are We This Stupid?
Over at Drudge he's running the headline "Only 85 Million Pay Fed Taxes" based on a Tax Foundation report showing just that. There are plenty of scary statistics in there, most of them which you are already familiar with. Such as the finding that those making over $50,000 pay 93.3% of the total tax burden. You do the math, but that means that those making under $50k only pay 6.7% of the feds tax revenue.
How can you have a democracy when a plurality of people don't pay?
But, you know what sticks out in my mind as the worst thing in the report?
Out of the 143 million tax returns that were filed with the IRS in 2010, 58 million – or 41 percent – of those filers were non-payers....In other words, not only are those making under $50k not paying any income taxes .... lots of them are actually being paid off by the government!
But Tax Foundation data also shows that people who didn’t pay any income tax received $105 billion in refundable tax credits from the IRS
That is, they have an effective tax rate that is negative.
If this isn't directly buying votes, I don't know what is.
File under: why tax reform will probably never happen without a few major riots.
Or, why I hate it when the French are right:
“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years.”UPDATE: Try to square the fact that the vast majority of the so-called "working class" is either paying nothing, next to nothing, or is being directly subsidized through negative taxation with the circle of the perception fed to them by the Democratic party and their media allies that they are being exploited by the wealthy:
~Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America
In the CNN/ORC survey, 68% of respondents said the current tax system benefits the rich and is unfair to ordinary workers, compared with 29% who disagreed with that view.Unfair: I do not think that word means what you think it means.
Home Alone IV: Lost in Afghanistan
Taliban Commander Turns Self In, Demands Reward on Himself
Sometimes a story is so bizarre and funny, it has to be true. Take this account of a Taliban commander who turned himself in to collect the reward ... on himself:
Mohammad Ashan, a mid-level Taliban commander in Paktika province, strolled toward a police checkpoint in the district of Sar Howza with a wanted poster bearing his own face. He demanded the finder’s fee referenced on the poster: $100....An imbecile? Really? You don't say?!?!?!!!
“[US forces] asked him, ‘Is this you?’ Mohammad Ashan answered with an incredible amount of enthusiasm, ‘Yes, yes, that’s me! Can I get my award now?’” recalled SPC Matthew Baker....
“This guy is the Taliban equivalent of the ‘Home Alone” burglars,” one U.S. official said....
“Clearly,” one U.S. official said, “the man is an imbecile.”

Attn al-Shabaab: Shafik Hammami Wants to Know if His Son is Dead or Alive
The least you can do is let Omar Hammimi's father Shafik know the status of his allegedly beheaded traitor of a son.
DAPHNE, Alabama -- Shafik Hammami has no special insights into the fate of the son he lost contact with years ago. He and his wife, like the rest of Alabama, await confirmation of reports in Somalia that Omar Hammami has been betrayed by the terrorist organization he joined in 2006.After all he is a Muslim and his son was fighting for you. Your silence on the matter is causing him great worry. If you have any honor, you will speak and tell the truth and not obfuscate behind any more excuses.
“I have not heard anything other than what I’ve read in the newspaper,” Shafik Hammami said this afternoon from his home in Daphne. “We are like anyone else. We haven’t had any confirmation.”
...U.S. officials have been unable to confirm those reports, though, and the elder Hammami said he has had no contact with the government. The last few weeks have been particularly difficult for the family, he said.

Photo Op: U.S. Sends Anti-Israel Advisor to Anti-Semitic Sweden
U.S. President Barack Obama's controversial anti-Semitism advisor, Hannah Rosenthal, will be visiting Sweden on April 24 to meet with Ilmar Reepalu, the famously anti-Israel mayor of the city of Malmö.Related:
According to the American embassy in Stockholm, Rosenthal has been following the rise of anti-Semitism in Malmö for some time and wants to make sure that there are no politicians in the area that encourage discrimination, racism or hatred for Jews.
Rosenthal's visit to Sweden is likely to amount to little more than an empty photo opportunity. This is because Rosenthal and Reepalu are both self-styled "progressives" who hold the insidious belief that Jews are to blame for anti-Semitism because of their support for Israel.
Like other European countries, Sweden has experienced a significant uptick in anti-Semitic hate-crimes in recent years. Jews in Sweden are frequently subject to harassment and some have been physically assaulted; Jewish cemeteries in the country have repeatedly been desecrated; Jewish worshippers have been abused on their way home from prayer; and Jews have been taunted in the streets by masked men chanting phrases such as "Hitler, Hitler" and "Dirty Jew." Some Jews in Sweden have stopped attending prayer services out of fear for their safety.[More...]
Great Moments in FAIL: Mumbai Bomber's Wife Warned US, US Ignored
If true, then this would be the second time in recent years where a family member dropped the dime on a would-be jihadi to embassy workers, and those warning were either ignored or, through bureaucratic mishandling, weren't acted upon. You'll remember that Senior Crispy Crotch's father also warned someone at the US embassy in Nigeria that his son was up to no good. But for the grace of God and a defective bomb, hundreds of Americans would be dead.

Non-Sarcastic Good News: Abu Qatada Arrested, Deportation Proceedings Begin Again
I'm guessing he has been a naughty, naughty boy since the Brits let him out of jail in February at the behest of the European Court for Human Rights. He was barred from leading prayers at mosque, using cell phones, surfing the internet (for porn, I'm sure), or public transportation. But I can envision a dozen scenarios where he continues to preach al Qaeda's message, but stays technically within the boundaries of his probation.
The bad news is that he's been successful at fighting extradition for six years already. The good news is that at least he's not on the street:
The Home Office said in a statement on Tuesday that British Border Agency officers “have today arrested Abu Qatada and told him that we intend to resume deportation proceedings against him.”And if he does go back to Jordan and he's tortured? No tears here.

Jews who disparage Israel and their fellow Jews are today’s wicked sons and daughters
In it, he takes to task the NYTimes op-ed by Peter Beinart, columnist Tom Friedman, and M. J. Rosenberg, formerly of Media Matters[..ed]
...........Beinart, Friedman, Rosenberg and others in this clique of Jewish Israel-detractors decry charges of anti-Semitism. Yet they actively hold Israel and Jews to an unattainable double standard, promote the idea that Jews secretly control, or attempt to control, global politics and disseminate charges that Jews are a disloyal fifth column. To say this is not anti-Semitism is to say The Protocols of the Elders of Zion is not anti-Semitic.Excellent put down of these self-hating Jews, I might add...
These Jewish Israel-detractors disparage “geriatric” pro-Israel Americans, pretending to speak for young, cool Jews. How ironic, then, that they personify a concept illustrated in the Haggada, written, according to scholars, in the third or fourth century.
Israel’s Jewish defamers are the embodiment of the Wicked Son who, had he been in Egypt at the Exodus, would not have been redeemed. What makes this son wicked and unworthy of redemption? Only that he sets himself apart from, and above, the rest of his people.[More..]

Taliban Poisons 150 Muslim Girls
About 150 Afghan schoolgirls were poisoned on Tuesday after drinking contaminated water at a high school in the country's north, officials said, blaming it on conservative radicals opposed to female education.Hat Tip: Michael Yon.
Since the 2001 toppling of the Taliban, which banned education for women and girls, females have returned to schools, especially in Kabul.
But periodic attacks still occur against girls, teachers and their school buildings, usually in the more conservative south and east of the country, from where the Taliban insurgency draws most support.
"We are 100 percent sure that the water they drunk inside their classes was poisoned. This is either the work of those who are against girls' education or irresponsible armed individuals," said Jan Mohammad Nabizada, a spokesman for education department in northern Takhar province.

al-Qaeda in Iraq Leader Blows Up His Wife and Kids
What a Loser!
BAQOUBA, Iraq: An alleged Al-Qaeda member blew up his house in Iraq’s Diyala province during a raid Monday, killing himself and four family members, while five people died in other attacks, security sources said.Just before Iraqi soldiers entered the home “of an Al-Qaeda member in Saadiyah, he blew up the house and killed himself, his wife, and three children,” who were between 5 and 15 years old, Iraqi army First Lieutenant Abbas al-Tamimi said.
The suspected Al-Qaeda member, Hussein Abdul-Sattar, destroyed the house northeast of Baqouba, the capital of Diyala in central Iraq, about noon (0900 GMT), Tamimi said.
Iraqi army Major Ahmad al-Juburi confirmed that “the terrorist was killed with his family, which consisted of his wife and his children.”
Libyan Rebels We are not al-Qaeda but we would love to join.
Libya is in chaos and ripe for a takeover by extremists, argues VICE News correspondent Sherif Elhelwa in his new documentary "Waiting for al-Qaeda." Traveling into the heart of the pro-al-Qaeda faction in Libya's east, Elhelwa shows the real life of Libya's Islamist movement.But like Rusty says. Its not anything to worry about much. Its just normal there.
"As an oil-rich country packed with rebels who were wary of authority, Libya had left the door open to extremist groups hungry for power. The question wasn't if al-Qaeda would spread into Libya, but when," Elhelwa states. His quest to bring the story to light began when he saw the black flag of al-Qaeda flying over the rebel central headquarters in Benghazi. When he confronted a local guard over the symbolism, he was told, "whomever speaks ill of this flag, we will cut off his tongue."

Her clients appeared to be younger people, in their teens and mid-20s, said Sgt. Scott Kapral.Police also found some thirty odd cats and four dogs in the condemned house Crofoot was using.

Good News: Mali Instituting Sharia Law
I've been following these developments for a few weeks, but keep forgetting to comment on them. The short version: Mali is embroiled in a civil war, with Islamists in the north with links to al Qaeda taking over several cities.
Here are some statements from the Ansar Dine, the Islamist rebels in charge, on how sharia is to be implemented in the city of Kidal. This is what the Washington Post claims is part of an effort of the group to "win hearts and minds"? Ooookay, but only if the hearts and minds being won over are squarely in that camp that thinks the Taliban are reasonable folks, and, hey, wouldn't our country be awesome if we were just a little bit more like Saudi Arabia?
Firstly: Women are banned from going out unveiled and – if they wanted to go out - they have wear a clothing that covers...I like that part about smoking. These guys would feel right at home in California!
Secondly: The mixing of men and women is prohibited either it be on motorcycles and cars, or on the street and in the houses....
Thirdly: Smoking is prohibited in the streets and the evidence from the Sharia on the prohibition of smoking in all its kinds because it consists of malice and much harm...
Fourthly: Who violates and disobeys Allah Almighty after this statement will be subjected to the punishment of the Sharia
Surprise: Tea Partiers Rallying for Mitt?
Yeah, you heard that right. I was a bit surprised myself.

Stakelbeck on Terror: D.C. Area Islamic Store Still Selling Radical Materials
In June 2010, my exclusive report on the radical materials being sold at Halalco--the Washington, D.C. area’s largest Islamic supermarket--first aired on CBN. I recounted my investigation into Halalco, which is located in Falls Church, Va., just minutes from the nation’s capital, in Chapter 5 of my book, The Terrorist Next Door.To complain about this is Islamophobic!
In addition to tons of hate-filled books by leading Muslim Brotherhood ideologues like Yusuf al-Qaradawi and convicted terrorists such as “The Hook,” Abu Hamza al-Masri, Halalco also featured notorious anti-Semitic tracts, like The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, not to mention a large library of CDs and DVDs by Khalid Yasin and other assorted radical Islamist mouthpieces.
In short, Halalco sells the kind of materials that have served to radicalize many young American Muslims. But the coup de grace and focus of my report was my discovery that Halalco was featuring a large display of CDs and DVDs by the not-so-dearly-departed Al Qaeda cleric Anwar al-Awalaki—just one day after Awlaki had released a videotape calling for the killing of American civilians. I confronted the owner of Halalco about it on camera (click on the viewer below to watch the report) and the Awlaki display—magically—disappeared.
But being caught red-handed peddling the works of one of the world’s most wanted terrorists apparently had little effect on Halalco’s choice in inventory. Intrepid journalist Patrick Poole, a good friend of the Stakelbeck on Terror show, recently paid a visit to Halalco and came up with a very interesting find.[Continue reading]
Shoe Bomb Conspirator Turns State's Evidence, Sentence Reduced
I'm conflicted: on the one hand, this guy conspired with Richard Reid to blow up an airplane! On the other hand, now he's going to testify against Adis Medunjanin, who's being tried in NYC as we speak (see below).
So, worst case scenario is that Saajid Badat gets out of a British jail early while a guy who threatened America gets a longer sentence.
Yeah, I can live with that. My apologies to British readers, but this appears to be a zero sum game: our win is your loss. That kinda sucks, no?
NYC Subway Bomb Plot Trial Begins
You'd think there would be a treason charge in here somewhere. One of the two on trial today is an American citizen. And you can't blame Obama on this either, none of the American citizens indicted under Bush ever faced a treason charge. Except, of course, Adam Gadahn -- who is still at large. I know treason is a tougher charge to convict on, but come one? If being trained by al Qaeda and then trying to attack the US doesn't fit the definition of treason under the Constitution, then what does?
Adis Medunjanin, 27, and two other New York men were recruited by Adnan Shukrijumah, one of al-Qaeda’s top operatives, for a planned bombing of subway lines in Manhattan in 2009, according to the U.S. government. The two other men, Najibullah Zazi and Zarein Ahmedzay, pleaded guilty in 2010.
“In September 2009, three men were prepared to strap bombs to their bodies and walk into crowded subway cars,” Assistant U.S. Attorney James P. Loonam told jurors in federal court in Brooklyn today. “These men came so close, within days, of carrying out this act before they were stopped.”
O'Keefe's Voter Fraud Investigation: Ben Jealous, Bill Maher, and David Brock Offered Ballot in Nation's Capitol

And if people posing as celebrities can get a ballot to vote in their name, what about those of us who aren't famous?

Dickhead Ahmed Offers 10 Million Bounty for US Presidents
He's offering it because he's offended that the US would go after al-Qaeda linked terrorist in LeT leader Hafiz Mohammad Saeed
The British peer reportedly said: "'If the US can announce a reward of $10 million for the (capture) of Hafiz Saeed, I can announce a bounty of £10 million (for the capture of) President Obama and his predecessor, George Bush."Not really surprising. The UK harbors all kinds of America Hating terrorists. I mean they have not suspended the Taliban's DNS service as required under international law even though the URL is registered by a UK company and the registrar is also under UK jurisdiction.
Documents found by US special forces at Osama bin Laden's final hideaway in Abbottabad, 22 miles north of Haripur, last year apparently linked Saeed with the al-Qaeda leader. The evidence was said to have shown that bin Laden played a key role in planning the 2008 Mumbai attacks.
In its statement suspending Lord Ahmed the Labour Party said: "The international community is rightly doing all in its power to seek justice for the victims of the Mumbai bombings and halt terrorism."
Norway: Anders Breivik Pleads Not Guilty, Acted In Self Defense....

Anders Behring Breivik attacked a youth camp organised by the governing Labour party on the island of Utoeya, after setting off a car bomb in the capital.
He told the court he "acknowledged" the acts committed, but said he did not accept criminal responsibility[...]
At the end of the indictment, he told the court: "I acknowledge the acts, but not criminal guilt - I claim I was doing it in self-defence."
Taliban Blatantly Raising Funds Over the Internet
Obama Cool With That
Given this weekends blatant attack by the Taliban, I was reminded of this last week.
The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan Financial commissionDespite the Taliban's laughable English skills sadly this is no joke.
...Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan which stood up with Muslim Ummah’s physical and financial support, are still waging legitimate Jihad single-handedly with mere help from common sincere Islam-loving masses and is in dire need of financial assistance from the Muslim brothers worldwide for its military and non-military expenditures.
...However, what if you were not prepared to fight in the way of Allah, either financially or in soul ? Prophet (sallallu alaihe wa salaam) says in Sahi Muslim "One who died but did not fight in the way of Allah nor did he express any desire or determination for Jihad died the death of a hypocrite."
Thus, save yourself from a greater hardship in the Hereafter and protect yourself against hellfire.
There is no life worth living except the life of the Hereafter and our hereafter depends on our present.
Let us save up for our Hereafter by doing our share of Jihad responding to the call of Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan and offer our monetary aid and donation to the financial officials of the Islamic Emirate so that it may be used to meet the requirements of the Jihad and Mujahideen fighting the invading forces on the ground in appropriate ways.
In case of any contributions,please contact the financial commission of Afghanistan on the following Email address.

I learned how to send money to the Taliban via one of their twitter feeds.
So here we have American, British and Indonesian companies all helping the Taliban spread their message and raise funds.
In case we've forgotten this is unlawful both under US and International law.
President of the United States William J. Clinton declared Executive order 13129.
This was replaced by President Bush's executive orders 13268, 13224, 13372 and 13284 as well as the International Emergency Economic Powers Act
Providing business services, even free ones, to the Taliban violates the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA) in the US. Each IEEPA violation of carries a fine of up to $250,000.Here's an example of an IEEPA prosecution for support of Hezbollah.
Providing business services to the Taliban also violates the Charter of the United Nations (Anti-terrorism — Persons and Entities) List, under United Nations Security Council Resolution 1373 of which Canada & the US have recognized as a legally binding resolution.
It also violates UN Security Council adopted Resolution 1267, of which Canada & the US recognize as binding law. "Asset holders are under an obligation to freeze the assets or economic resources of persons involved in terrorism as listed in the Consolidated List", of which the Taliban are listed.
So lets face it. The Taliban exist on the web due to one factor and one factor only. The Administration's tolerance of their presence. There are plenty of tools at both the domestic and international level for them to exert pressure on the nations and providers who lend their systems to the Taliban's presence.
These are not the top tier forums where intelligence gathering on high level terrorists take place. These websites are static and target the general public.
We've exerted a bit of pressure of our own a few times Since the Obama administration has taken office. And the results have been quite different than under previous administrations.
It seems there is a deliberate failure to enforce these sanctions against the Taliban. The Obama administration has approved a Taliban embassy in Qatar and is seeking talks with the Taliban. It makes sense, given the administrations strategy, that interfering with the Taliban's messaging and fundraising would also be off limits. It might upset these delicate negotiations, No?
So tell me how's that been working out for you Mr. President?
Meanwhile, in northern Pakistan, Taliban militants raided a prison in Bannu, CNN reported, freeing 384 inmates.That good huh?
Four prison officials were wounded in the two-hour attack, CNN said. According to a Pakistani information minister, 21 of the 384 escaped prisoners were "high-profile" militants, and the raid was apparently designed to free a senior Taliban commander.
"This is beyond terrorism," Iftikhar Hussain, the information minister of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province, told CNN. "Such an attack challenges the writ of the state."

Anonymous Hacker, AnonwOrmer, PWND By These Boobies (Update)
Last week, Higinio O. Ochoa III was charged by the FBI with hacking into US law enforcement agencies and releasing phone numbers and home addresses of police officers. You're looking at the evidence the FBI used to nail him.Oh, the irony:
HOUSTON (CBS Houston) - The evidence that the Federal Bureau of Investigations gathered against an alleged Galveston hacker didn’t come from a techno-chase through the expansive Internet. Instead, the FBI used the information embedded in a photograph of his girlfriend’s breasts.Heh...
Higinio O. Ochoa, 30, is a Linux administrator by day, but by night he’s accused of being part of the group “CabinCr3w,” an affiliate of the hacktivist organization Anonymous.
According to Gizmodo, Ochoa allegedly used the Twitter handle @Anonw0rmer to link to a site boasting personal information on law enforcement officials, along with a picture of a young women in a low-cut shirt that read, “PwNd by w0rmer & CabinCr3w.”[More...]
Update: I've added the complaint below the fold(Scribd):
al-Shabaab Executes Abu Mansoor Al-Amriki? (Update: Beheaded?)
There are unconfirmed reports of the possible execution of an Alabama man who joined a Somali terrorist group several years ago.This rumor and other that he was killed in combat have been circulating widely the past few days. That was Omar Hammimi's complaint. That the Somali members of al-Shabaab were using the western recruits as cannon fodder.
American Abu Mansoor Al-Amriki (aka Omar Hammimi ) joined the Jihadist group Al-Shabaab in 1999, eventually becoming one of the group's top commanders.
He is rumored to have been executed by other commanders over a dispute about the terrorist group's future.
The reports have been unconfirmed by NBC News and by Al-Shabaab, which has its own press office.
al-Shabaab has not issued any statement despite several requests by yours truly for proof of life. But according to Sharia airing your dirty laundry in front of the Kufr is not allowed, Un-Islamic . So I'm not surprised they have refused to update anyone on his status regardless.
That would be the same sin that would get him offed when he upload the the above video.
Update: 04/14/12: This account of his death comes from the Islamic Awakening forum.
"According to Somalia's Gedo Online, Hammami was the only one absent from a recent meeting attended by top al-Shabaab leaders in Baraawe. Al-Shabaab reportedly hunted down Hammami after he left Marka in the Lower Shabelle region. He was reportedly beheaded on the spot and buried somewhere between Marka and Baraawe. According to the report, the alleged execution angered some al-Shabaab leaders, who accused al-Shabaab leader Ahmed Abdi Godane of ordering the execution. A group of foreign fighters and other top al-Shabaab members, including Fuad Mohamed Khalaf, also known as Fuad Shongoole, reportedly fled to the Galgala Mountains following the news of the execution."Even more here.
Bumped from 04/13 to 04/15. The rumor of Hammimi's death has now risen to a dull roar. Still no confirmation or denial from al-Shabaab. They call it a sensitive matter.
Sandcrawler PSA Tornadoes!
Apparently things got a bit worse since I checked last night. They had predicted these storms 24 hours in advance and last night it appeared it was fizzling. One bad one in Iowa but reports were listing winds of about 60 mph. Not bad for mid-west storms.
Now reports are it got worse overnight and 5 people have died in storms in Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa. Worst hit was Woodward Oklahoma were all the deaths occurred.
Round two shaping up today appears to be further south out of Nebraska and Kansas into Mo and Ark. I'm a little jaded by these so I tend not to get too upset. But they are dangerous no matter how used to it we are. Stay alert folks.

Taliban Attack Frees Hundreds in Pakistan
From ABC News:
Almost 400 prisoners have escaped from a jail in north-west Pakistan after it was attacked by Islamist militants armed with guns and rocket-propelled grenades, a senior police official says.I'm sure there wasn't any inside help from our gallant Pakistani allies.
Some of those who escaped from the jail in the town of Bannu in the early morning on Sunday were militants, an intelligence official said.

Roadside Pooper Pinched by Trooper
(Fort Pierce, Florida) A 30-something woman, Melissa Mansfield (aka Mellisa Mansfield), has been accused of indecent exposure after being caught by a Florida Highway Patrol trooper as she was taking a dump on the berm of Interstate 95.
According to the trooper:
As I approached the vehicle I clearly observed a white female squatting on the passenger side of the vehicle with her pants down below her knees defecating with moderate traffic flowing.Mansfield reportedly had no driver's license and the car she was driving was reported stolen in Key West. She was booked into custody on charges of indecent exposure, vehicle theft, and operating a motor vehicle without a valid license.
She had no expectation of privacy due to the fact she did [not] open the rear passenger door to shield herself from the view of oncoming traffics. I asked her what she was doing and she stated, "I am going to the bathroom."

Also known as the ‘Welcome to Palestine’ campaign, the ‘Air Flotilla 2′ is yet another attempt to undermine Israel’s legitimacy and manufacture anti-Israel publicity.

Horrible Weapon Used in Bank Robbery Attempt
I'd usually have some sort of smart-ass remark for a story like this.
Utica police tell local media outlets that Lawrence Deptola went into city bank Thursday afternoon and threatened a teller with the [toilet] plunger.I'm familiar with the Utica area, and some of the denizens are a little odd, I but have absolutely no idea what this guy was thinking.
Police responded after two other banks had previously called authorities about a suspicious man entering their buildings.
Deptola was arrested after a foot chase and charged with attempted third-degree robbery.
Lashkar-e-Tayyiba Supporter Sentenced to 12 Years
A Virginia resident and native of Pakistan was sentenced to 12 years in prison Friday for providing material support to the Lashkar-e-Tayyiba (LeT), a designated foreign terrorist group.So you'd think that Youtube would get the idea that hosting propaganda in support of LeT and Jammat ud-Dawah is unlawful.
Jubair Ahmad was born and raised in Pakistan, where he received religious and commando training from the LeT. He moved to the United States with his family in 2007 when he was 19. In 2009, the FBI opened an investigation against Ahmad after obtaining information tying him to Lashkar.
According to court records, Ahmad produced and posted a propaganda video in September 2010 for the LeT on YouTube to help the terrorist group broaden its support base and recruit potential jihadists. The five-minute video included images of LeT chief Hafeez Saeed as well as "jihadi martyrs and armored trucks exploding after having been hit by Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs)."

Midterm Liveblogging: Woe for our Democracy Edition!
I was listening to Neil Boortz yesterday while I was fishing (caught a bunch of striped bass!) and he kept citing some report in which he claimed that enough Americans are too stupid to know they're even stupid, and this means that maybe we're too stupid to govern ourselves.
So, maybe it's time to bring literacy tests back? That they just got a bad rap because of the way segregationists used them to exclude blacks from voting?
I dunno, I used to be the kind of guy who would be the first to argue against restrictions on voting.
But after 10 years of teaching introduction to American Government at the college level, I'm not so sure anymore. I actually had a few people who didn't know who the Vice President of the United Staes was on the last midterm. I really have to wonder if they should be voting.
I'm giving a midterm as we speak. About 1/3 of the class has already dropped out. But there's at least 25% of the class that should have dropped out, but haven't. And why not? Because they can't do basic math. They don't realize that if you fail the first two midterms miserably that the math doesn't add up to a passing grade.
But is that, as Boortz claimed, the result of stupidity? I don't know. Could it be that these "stupid" students aren't inherently stupid but are just the result of 12 years of social promotion in public schools?
That is, their whole life they've been giving passing grades just for showing up. It's programmed into them. They have adapted their lives to the incentive structure that they are used to.
When asked to "perform" they just don't know how.
I guess the question is: Are thy inherently stupid -- a reflection of low reasoning abilities due to genetics, the Idiocrosy scenario -- or are they the product of a system that rewards them for stupidity and therefore the system is to blame?
I have to believe it's the latter. I hope it's the latter. We can deal with the latter.
Okay, back to class. I'm not looking forward to grading these. No matter what the cause of the low performance of college students who supposedly already passed a high school civics class, I still have to deal with the effects.
And so do you. The worst of them being the current occupant of the White House.
Chuck Woolery Solves the Illegal Immigrant Problem
Can we afford to sustain James E. McWilliams?
Farmers could avoid this waste by exploiting animals only for their manure, allowing them to live out the entirety of their lives on the farm, all the while doing their own breeding and growing of feed. But they’d better have a trust fund.I mean he's made of meat and produces twice as much green house gas your average person. At least the NY Times is taking his green suggestions and only exploiting his manure.
The big hole in McWilliams' plan? If we kept livestock on a farm, protected from predators and never butchering any of them, their natural breeding rate would mean we'd soon be overrun with cattle and pigs.
Remember a fence only stops happy livestock so next they would escape and eat up all his arugula.

Video: Revealed-Al Shabaab plot to attack Nairobi and Mombasa
Published on Apr 12, 2012 by NTVKenya
There could be a plot hatched by the Al-Shabaab that could be at an advanced stage, to kill and maim what could be hundreds of Kenyans in Nairobi and Mombasa. NTV has obtained exclusive footage of Al-Shabaab agents packing what an analyst has called highly dangerous explosives, and a conversation that points to where these explosives may be headed. The video, our sources say was recorded just five days ago, and the plan it is believed, is to simultaneously detonate two sets of explosives in Nairobi and Mombasa. John-Allan Namu report
Fatwa This: Women Can't Speak of Islam
Then, several months ago, I received an e-mail from Roberta Bonazzi, who runs the European Foundation for Democracy (EFD), to alert me to a YouTube video of Manji’s frightening encounter with Muslim extremists from“Sharia4Belgium” at an EFD-sponsored event in December in Amsterdam.At least she's looking into the connection, but while she goes after liberals she too falls victim to equating the issues in Islamic society to culture. Yeah its just culture.... that's it.
There, about 20 angry men burst into the room in which Manji was having a moderated discussion with Tofik Dibi, a member of Holland’s Green Party. They threatened to break Manji’s neck, but she and Dibi refused to leave and, after the police arrested a few of the bullies, the event resumed.
...With culture as her target, Manji takes aim at Muslims who prefer her more individualistic interpretation of Islam but are afraid to speak out, and at Western liberals who are too blinded by their multicultural sensitivities and moral relativism, and too fearful of being labeled anti-Islamic bigots, to confront the honor killings and child abuse that are all-too-common in Islamic society.
Anyway here is the video of Shaira4Belgium's attack on Manji for speaking her mind.
Despite Sharia4Belgium's proven terror connections, two convictions in Belgium, a firebombing of a Mosque that resulted in the dead of a Shia Imam and its links to Mohammad Merah they are still operating freely on the web.

Developing: 2 CG Members Found Dead At Coast Guard Base on Kodiak Island
KODIAK, Alaska (AP) - U.S. Coast Guard officials say two Coast Guard members are dead in shootings at a communications station on an Alaska island.Will update when more information becomes available.
Officials said Thursday it's unclear if the deaths at the Coast Guard Station on Kodiak Island are a double homicide or murder-suicide.
Update: News Release from the Coast Guard:
News ReleaseThe families and friends of those killed are also in our thoughts and prayers.

Coast Guard investigating 2 fatalities at Communications Station Kodiak
KODIAK, Alaska — The Coast Guard is working with federal, state and local law enforcement agencies to investigate the shooting deaths of two members at Coast Guard Communications Station Kodiak Thursday.
As a safety precaution the base and local schools are on lockdown until we can ensure no threat exists.
"It is possible that the suspect remains at large," said Capt. Jesse Moore, commanding officer, Coast Guard Base Support Unit Kodiak. "Since we don't have all the details, we strongly advise that all Kodiak residents to remain vigilant and to report any suspicious activity to local law enforcement officials."
"We are deeply saddened that we lost two shipmates," said Moore. "This is a rare occurrence and we are going to do everything possible to ensure we find out exactly what happened."
"Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of our lost shipmates and we will provide all the necessary support and guidance they need as they grieve their loved ones," said Moore.
The names of the deceased will not be released until next of kin notifications are complete.

Apparently We Surrendered
No one told the American People but apparently we submitted to Islam last week.
When the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood came to America it was to secure our surrender.
Welcome to Dhimmitude America now all you have to do is STFU and pay the Jizya and the Muslims will be merciful on you second class infidels.
Update: That is if the Brother's really even want the money at the moment. Refusing the money we're sure to offer might be even more in their interest.
Asia Times has a warning article online today that ought to be read by anyone with a passing interest in current events. It details what is likely to happen when Egypt’s money and food run out, something that is likely to happen sooner rather than later. Hoarding of both hard currency and consumables has already begun and it’s only going to get worse.
What's With All The Disappearing News on The Murder of Shaima Alawadi?
So I go to Google News to look for updates and I find this.
Notfound, down the memory hole.
Try next story.
Notfound, also down the memory hole.
In fact Google News has no updates at all since March 27th? Why is it that all the interest in this woman's death has suddenly dissolved into thin air? Why are the only stories that remain parroting the hate crime narrative while none list recent developments in the evidence?
What does she not deserve justice? Is there some sort of problem with the narrative?
When will her family return to the US to help investigators clear up this issue and find justice for Shaima?
Apparently CAIR don't care about Shamina now. But it never hurts to ask I always say.

Turkey Has Become World's Leading Hotspot Of Honor Killings
Such a nice woman/gay/lesbian, it would be a shame if you shame us~Turkey
So Gov Perry was on to something"There's no honor in killing" top Judge tells Muslim family..…after the Islamists came to power in 2002 and opened the gates of gradual Islamization of Turkey, after 8 decades of strict secular rule, Turkey has risen to be the world’s “number one honor killing country“, with a killing rate 5 times higher than that of Pakistan, known to be notorious for honor killing[...]
In Pakistan, notorious for honor killing, Human Rights Commission of Pakistan recorded 943 cases of such killings in 2011, and about 100 less in 2010. That means Turkey had about double the number of honor killings in 2009 as compared the number honor-killed in Pakistan in 2011. Given Pakistan has a population of 177 million as compared to Turkey’s 75 million, Turkey has an honor-killing rate, which is greater than 5 times higher than that of Pakistan. So, undoubtedly, Turkey is the number one country in the world in terms of total number of honor killings happening every year, and its honor-killing rate is also nearly at the top amongst all countries in the world[More..]

Shocking! FOXNEWS Gawker Mole Fired
Fox News on Wednesday said it was firing an employee who had anonymously posted videos and comments about behind-the-scenes workdays at the television network, leading media website Gawker to dub him the "mole."Here's the Gawker post.
Joe Muto, who had worked as an associate producer on commentator Bill O'Reilly's show at Fox, began his postings on social media websites on Tuesday, and Gawker then began publishing "installments" from the "mole" on its website.
After being suspended, Muto posted a picture of himself late on Wednesday afternoon inside Gawker's office saying "It's Me, Joe: The Fox Mole."
Two hours ago I was called into a meeting with Dianne Brandi, the Fox News Executive Vice President of Legal and Business Affairs and suspended indefinitely... with pay, oddly enough.Well that went well didn't it?
They nailed me.
I am a weasel, a traitor, a sell-out and every bad word you can throw at me....
And I'm sure the crazy blog money will replace the salary and benefits he earned at FOX.

Congressmen To Mahmoud Abbas: Helen Thomas Award May Damage Palestinian Aid
With you know who in the WH, ain't gonna happen. Just sayin..
Two ranking congressmen sent a letter to the Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, warning him over awarding anti-Semitic journalist Helen Thomas, the Israeli daily Haaretz reports. The congressmen expressed frustration over the blatant incitement of the act, as well as a pattern of undermining peace talks with hate speech.A reminder on why the PLO gave Thomas a award on behalf of Abbas:
Republican Steve Chabot, Chairman of the Middle East and South Asia Subcommittee, and Eliot Engel, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, wrote that the move was "tantamount to accepting and agreeing with her call for Jews in Palestine to go back to Poland, Germany and America and everywhere else."[More...]
Canada: Dear Mayor of Fredericton, New Brunswick & Vagrant Web (Bumped-Update)
The owner of Vagrant Web has replied to my post. I want to thank Carter McLaughlin for looking into this and clearing this up. Our finest and bravest certainly will thank him:
I was made aware of your blog post and the reason behind that post by tweets to my personal Twitter account, @carter_vagrant. I did not notice and did reply to any tweets to the @vagrantweb account because of the reasons I will mention below.I would also like to thank @Flippintheray for directing my tweets, and link to my post, to @carter_vagran.
I previously developed and released a social media sharing plugin for the Joomla CMS called "VagrantWeb Social Buttons". This plugin was a simple content sharing plugin released on the Joomla Extensions Directory. As part of the settings, you could enter your own Twitter account to be tagged, much like Sharethis plugins add the "via @sharethis" tag to the tweet. The default setting on the plugin was set to "via @vagrantweb".
Regrettably, this plugin appears to be used by nefarious and hateful organizations on their websites, as by design.. the plugin was available to anyone and everyone. I of course, do not condone, and in fact, condemn the use of this plugin by any hateful, illegal group.
It's highly regrettable that my companies name has been attached in any way to content being shared on Twitter that is of this horrible nature.
This plugin was deleted by myself from the Joomla Extensions Directory and is not supported in any way.
Please share this with your blog followers.

Al Qaeda Finds Yet Another Reason to Make Empty Threat Against the UK
Al Qaeda is back .. and this time, it's personal:
In a statement signed by Al-Qaeda’s general command and published on jihadist forums, the terror network said Abu Qatada’s extradition would “open the gates of evil” on “Britain and its citizens everywhere.”I think my initial snark for this post was to observe that al Qaeda had been threatening the UK for any other number of reasons, so what's the big deal here?
“We warn the British government against extraditing Sheikh Abu Qatada to Jordan,” where he faces terror charges, said the statement, which called on London to “act with reason and wisdom … or it will regret it.”
And then, I just realized that the real snark here is the observation that Abu Qatada claims that he was not a member of al Qaeda ... and here is al Qaeda threatening the UK if they deport him to Jordan. But, you know, he's not a member or anything. Never has been ......

Muslims Face Backlash After Jihad Mass Murder
On March 19th, just days after killing two French soldiers, Muslim Mohamed Merah arrived at a Jewish school in Toulouse. He calmly gunned down a father and his two young sons. He then entered the school, caught 8 year-old Miriam Monsonego and, holding her by her hair, shot her. As she slumped to the floor bleeding, he fired two more shots into her head.
All four were murdered only for being Jewish.
But the barbarity doesn't end there. The above is just the tip of the iceberg. The real victims in this case are Muslims. The real tragedy is what they have had to endure since Merah went on his violent rampage:
The attacks in France committed by Mohammed Merah, a French-born Muslim whose parents migrated from Algeria, have millions of Muslims living in the West worried about the potential consequences. [...]
Many friends who wear the hijab and live in Europe reported getting angry looks after the attacks, said Malika, 29, a German of Moroccan background who works in a bank and declined to have her last name published.
OH, THE HUMANITY! I just can't read any more. You can read more at Jihad Watch.
The next time you light a candle for those innocent Toulouse victims, make certain you also light one for the Muslimahs who are now getting dirty looks from the kufar.
Obama Administration: Deadly Islamic Terrorist Attacks Against Christians In Nigeria Have Nothing To Do With Religion
Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs Johnnie Carson said Monday that “religion is not driving extremist violence” in Nigeria--just one day after a Christian church conducting an Easter service was targeted by a car bombing that left 39 dead.
Similarly, on Christmas Day, the Nigerian Islamist terrorist group, Boko Haram, attacked a Catholic church in that country, killing more than 40 people.
“I want to take this opportunity to stress one key point and that is that religion is not driving extremist violence either in Jos or northern Nigeria,” Assistant Secretary of State Carson said Monday at a forum on U.S. policy toward Nigeria held at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Washington, D.C.
No one can be this naturally clueless. The lengths through which the Obama Administration has gone to defend Islamists throughout the world goes far beyond ordinary - even extraordinary - ignorance. I can only concluded Obama's attitudes toward Muslims is a legitimate favoritism that makes little sense coming from a self-professed Christian.
I don't want to be one to jump on the 'Obama is a closet Muslim' bandwagon, but there is something intrinsically wrong with a 'Christian' defending and protecting the violent faith of Islam to such an extent.
It really reminds me of the Jüdischer Ordnungsdienst during the holocaust. These were police units the Nazis employed to keep the Jewish ghettos under control. Members of these police units - all Jews - not only kept other Jews in line, but also served to infiltrate the Jewish resistance and oversaw the deportation of people to extermination camps. Surely, they must have resorted to some manipulation or deceit in order to perpetrate such a crime against their own people. I find it difficult to believe so many would have gone so willing to that fate.
While it may be offensive to some to compare modern day politics with such an historical atrocity, I think it is comparable with the systematic destruction of our society by the current administration, and to the treasonous betrayal of all those who suffer under the oppression of radical Islamists. We must reminds ourselves that, what liberals and progressives call a 'tiny minority of misunderstanders' control every major Muslim nation and is rapidly expanding throughout the African continent.
Willful ignorance is not a solution to terrorism. Nor is appeasement or reasoning. As long as we allow ourselves to be manipulated into believing there is no religious motivation behind Islamic terrorism, it becomes more difficult to resist a destructive offense that has no other definition.

Why They Hate and Fear US
To be honest, I was beginning to lose hope that we could make a difference. But Datechguy has this:
During his talk in Lexington Mass. last year Andrew Breitbart urged those in attendance to carry a camera and report and even if it was no more than a Kindergarten teacher pushing an agenda to send him the story and he would make it national. If you are a blogger willing to report on those local stories and promote them up the blog ecosystem you have the power to make a difference. Breitbart understood this and so does every member of the MSM with an agenda who dismisses bloggers and tweeters.To some extent corporate blogging has kind of killed what we bloggers do. Actually, it's not really blogging if you're getting a paycheck for it from someone. It's .... something else.
That more than anything else is why they hate you and fear you.
And it's becoming harder and harder for us to make a difference. Because the "big guys" who used to link us are now all owned by some think tank or media group. And they just link each other.
Andrew Breitbart was really the exception to this rule.
So, I want to believe we bloggers can make a difference. I just hope the next Breitbart is waiting in the wings, ready to make his appearance on the scene.
Obama's Cynical Electoral 'Multipliers'

Having Barack Obama as Reference on Your Resume'
No sooner had the absolutely horrifying unemployment report for March been released than we received an update on the status of engineer Darin Wedel, who became one of America’s most famous job seekers two months ago.
At that time, Wedel’s wife Jennifer found herself in one of President Obama’s gimmicky “online chat” events, and asked the President why the government is passing out so many visas for foreign workers when large numbers of Americans with excellent job skills are unemployed. Darin Wedel was a semiconductor engineer at Texas Instruments, but lost his job three years ago.
...And as for Darin Wedel, well, he still doesn’t have a job.
al-Qaeda Beheads Woman in Yemen
Al Qaeda beheaded a woman for not being a good Muslim in the south eastern town of Rada'a, said local sources on Wednesday.I would like to say this is a rare public murder by al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, but its not especially of late.
Al Qaeda fighters stormed the house of Mrs AlSharifa Amer, in Bani Zeyad, Rada'a, and slaughtered her and took the head and hang it in front of the house of Mohammed Mohammed Al Awbali. Mrs Amer is locally known as a popular doctor who treats sick people by herbs .
The sources said that Al Qaeda considered the woman as an enemy of Allah for being a "trickster".
Sandcrawler PSA: Top 8 Signs a Cyber Jihadi Might be Dangerous
While there are many factors that could indicate an individual online is considering committing a terrorist act, there is no smoking gun to determine who will actually act out, said Alix Levine, director of research at Cronus Global, in a recent presentation at the 2012 GovSec conference in Washington.Hat Tip: Stable Hand.
“On the Internet you can be anyone you want to be," said Levine, who assists and advises government officials on tracking and spotting potential terrorists. "You can be Osama bin Laden or support [those views] in forums." But an individual “won’t necessarily act that way in the real world. At what point does virtual and reality collide? What pushes someone over the edge?”
Some online behaviors of known terrorists that could indicate a predilection towards physical violence include:Posting pictures of themselves with weapons.
Posting but removing other incendiary posts to avoid detection by law enforcement.
Threatening celebrities to gain fame.
Disseminating terrorist propaganda.
Access to elite (i.e., password protected) radical forums.
Creating their own propaganda.
Public posts of their desire to be part of the movement.
Creating content to help others strategically plan violent activities.
Jennifer Love Hewitt's Boobie Shrinkage
The Lifetime network has shrunken Jennifer Love Hewitt's boobs for an ad about her new show The Client List that was run in a weekly entertainment magazine.
Apparently it was an effort to make her less threatening to their mostly female audience.
Daily Caller: Since the 1990s there has been a fascination with Jennifer Love Hewitt’s body. Now, Lifetime, has gone and done the unthinkable.Above is the altered image.
On a poster advertising Hewitt’s latest television series, “The Client List,” the network downsized her God-given assets from busty to, well, not-so-busty
The motivation behind this appalling act is unclear, especially since the series features a barely-clothed Hewitt as Riley Parks — a struggling mother of two who moonlights as a masseuse at a spa that provides happy endings.
And below is the original that proves that Jennifer Love Hewitt is the Chuck Norris of Boobs.

Teacher Leaves Job and Family for Girl, 18, Then Gets Arrested for Sexual Misconduct with Another Girl
(Modesto, California) In mid-February, a 41-year-old business teacher at Enochs High School, James Hooker, left his family and quit his job to live with an 18-year-old female student, Jordan Powers.
Controversy erupted and persists with the school district, the teachers union, parents and the media weighing in.
Hooker and Powers seemingly lived in conjugal bliss until last week when Hooker was arrested for sexual misconduct with a different teen girl 14 years ago. Powers apparently felt betrayed and left, announcing they were through.
Check the video update.
Last Saturday, Hooker was released from custody on $50,000 bond. Latest report indicates Hooker is now trying to win back his teenage paramour.
Worst President Ever Number of the Day: $1.15 Trillion
And why Obamacare and Romneycare are fundamentally different
That's how much Obamcare is going to cost us. That's trillion, with a "T".
This is what that number looks like when written out completely:
As explained at The Tatler:
A new study out this morning finds that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is expected to add as much as $530 billion (and at least $340 billion) to federal deficits while increasing spending by more than $1.15 trillion.Great job Obama!
I don't much like Romneycare, either. But when when conservatives are no longer able to distinguish between the powers granted to state governments (unlimited, except where specifically prohibited) and the powers granted to the federal government (limited, except where specifically granted), then they've ceased to be conservatives and have morphed into something else.
That's the legal distinction, and it's what is at the heart to the Obamacare challenge in the Supreme Court.
If you don't understand this not so subtle distinction between Romneycare and Obamacare then you've kind of missed out on Constitution 101.
The point being that the "Romney and Obama are indistinguishable from each other" crowd are just dead wrong on this issue. They think there is an amorphous "government" which is limited by the Constitution. Not the case. Not the case at all.
The Founding Father's specifically left out of the original writing of the Constitution a Bill of Rights. Why? Here's Alexander Hamilton in Federalist 84. Remember, the Left often says he's the guy who believed in some sort of unlimited federal power:
I go further, and affirm that bills of rights, in the sense and in the extent in which they are contended for, are not only unnecessary in the proposed constitution, but would even be dangerous. They would contain various exceptions to powers which are not granted; and on this very account, would afford a colourable pretext to claim more than were granted. For why declare that things shall not be done which there is no power to do?In other words, they didn't want a Bill of Rights because implicit in the notion that "these are the things the Federal government can't do" is an underlying premise that it has some sort of general power.
Which it doesn't. All of the Founding Fathers, even the ones like Hamilton with a notion of a somewhat more expansive Federal power, agreed that the Federal government was limited to those things enumerated in Article I, sec. 8 of the Constitution.
But those limitations did not apply to the states.
Which is why, when they finally relented and adopted the Bill of Rights as a political maneuver to win over those states wavering on the question of ratification, they adopted the 10th Amendment.
Call it an exclamation point to the argument that states are generally all powerful but the federal government isn't (!). It reads simply:
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.So, was Obamacare based on Romneycare? Yes, but that misses the entire point of the lawsuit and Constitutional claims against it.
The real question is: Does the federal government have the exact same powers to regulate the health, safety, and morals of the citizenry (the "police power") that the states do?
The answer of course is NO!
I support many things at the state level which I do not support at the federal level. This does not make me a hypocrite, it makes me an informed citizen.
The same applies to Romney. It is perfectly consistent to support state health care mandates and oppose federal mandates modeled after them. It does not make one a hypocrite or "etch-a-sketch" wishy-washy just because one supports something at the state level but opposes them at the federal level.
It just makes you a believer in the Constitution. Something I thought we conservatives were all about?
I'm not saying that Romney is perfectly consistent across all of his policy views. But frankly if we wanted perfectly consistent we'd nominate Ron Paul.
Consistency, like all other values, is of prime importance. Until it's not. At some point on the political spectrum consistency begins to look a lot less like something of value and a lot more like extremism or pie-in-the-sky romanticism.
I guess I'm saying that I'm tired of this particular albatross being tied around Mitt Romney's neck when in this case it just isn't a fair criticism. Obama can say all he wants that his health care "reforms" were modeled after those of Mitt Romney. But what this "Constitutional scholar" does not get is the Constitution itself. That what he studied and taught in law school was not Constitutional scholarship at all, but rather sophisticated liberal apologetics about why the Constitution really means any thing liberals want it to mean.
James Madison, in Federalist #44 prophesies of this particular election. No, I'm not claiming divine wisdom here, but he was rather on the nose when he responded to those objecting to the necessary and proper clause which claimed that Congress would use it as a way to expand the very limited powers given to the Federal government. He says:
If it be asked what is to be the consequence, in case the Congress shall misconstrue this part of the Constitution, and exercise powers not warranted by its true meaning.Obama and the Democratic Congress have usurped their Constitutional powers. Ultimately, the way to redress this problem is to throw them out of office and elect officials who pledge to honor the Constitution's limitations on federal power. We've already done this in the House. Now it's time to do the same in the Senate and in the White House.
I answer .... the success of the usurpation will depend on the executive and judiciary departments, which are to expound and give effect to the legislative acts; and in the last resort a remedy must be obtained from the people who can, by the election of more faithful representatives, annul the acts of the usurpers.
Realistically, only one man stands a chance of beating Obama and overturning Obamacare and the trillion dollars of new spending it represents. That man is Mitt Romney.

Seriously Good News! British terror suspects can be extradited to the US
No more preaching from behind bars for Abu, aka Hook, Hamza..
The European Court of Human Rights has today ruled that Britain can extradite five terrorism suspects to the US. Abu Hamza, Babar Ahmad, Syed Talha Ahsan, Adel Abdel Bari and Khalid al-Fawwaz will now all be tried in the US, while the case of Haroon Rashid Aswat has been adjourned so his mental condition can be assessed further.h/t El_Grillo
Most of the focus on this case has been on Abu Hamza (because he is such a notorious figure and such a significant jihadist figurehead) and the Brits Ahmad and Ahsan, who it has already been shown in a US court ran the jihadist website Azzam Publications here in the UK. However, there has been a lack of focus on the significance of the other two men – al-Fawwaz and Bari, two old school jihadis indicted in the same US charge sheet as al-Qaeda luminaries Osama bin Laden, Ayman Zawahiri and Mohammed Atef and accused of involvement in al-Qaeda’s 1998 embassy bombings.[More...]

Iran Captures Super-Sekrit Zionist Terrorist Team
Oh noes, they caught the Zohan!
Iranian security forces arrested an Israeli-backed “terrorist team” days before crucial nuclear talks with world powers, the Intelligence Ministry announced Tuesday.Could not be verified .... you don't say?
The announcement, reported by the state-run Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA), said that “terrorists, backed by the Zionists,” were arrested following months of intelligence operations in central and border provinces and that the “Zionist regional headquarters” was discovered in a regional country....
Like previous Iranian reports on arrests of spies and terrorists, Tuesday’s claim could not be independently verified.
Meanwhile, over at the IRNA website, the "President" of Iran claims that Ignorance of the Quran is the root cause of all human suffering.
For once, we're in total agreement.

Real Winners of Maryland Mega Millions
Two public school teachers and a school administrator who call themselves "The Three Amigos" are sharing the spoils of last month's record Mega Millions jackpot, planning trips to Europe, new homes and children's college educations, Maryland Lottery officials said Tuesday.Apparently Mirlande Wilson's new life for her kids won't be including any Lotto winnings nor her former occupation at McDonalds.
The Maryland winners claimed their proceeds Monday and chose to remain anonymous, but the lottery agency shared some details in a news conference, including the fact that each of the three friends works multiple jobs to make ends meet.
"If it can't be you, these people are precisely the people you would want to see win," Maryland Lottery director Stephen Martino said.

Grandpa, Patriot (aka The Raptor) Claims Credit For Taking Down Al Qaeda Websites
Allahu Snackbar, and, Allah knows best..
EXCLUSIVE: An American hacker, who calls himself “The Raptor” and claims to be a grandfather waging his own war on terror, is taking credit for a series of takedowns of online forums used by Al Qaeda sympathizers, FoxNews.com has learned.Whether he is the one or not, it's always good to keep al-Qaeda/sympathizers guessing.
Calling himself a patriot acting on behalf of U.S. troops serving overseas, The Raptor claims to be behind last month’s attack on Al Qaeda’s main online forum, Shamukh Islamic Network, and a handful of other sites and forums, including Ansar al-Mujahideen, where jihadists gather online to issue threats and exhort one another to acts of terror. The sites went down on March 22, and most remained dark for nearly two weeks. As the websites stayed offline, The Raptor taunted his targets on Twitter, daring them to “bring it.”
Who is taking it down is an interesting question, but does it matter?” asked Jeff Bardin, cyberterror expert and former Air Force Arabic linguist who is now a principal at the private intelligence firm Treadstone 71.
If experts can’t be sure who is taking the jihadist sites down, it is unlikely the extremists who run them and post on them can, either. But it is all but certain they’ve been stung by the taunts of someone calling himself The Raptor, or as his Twitter handle is spelled, “the3raptor.”
“Just another infidel defending cyberspace for God and country,” The Raptor describes himself on Twitter.[...]
“Credit is for banks -- I don't care about credit,” he told FoxNews.com. “I care about our kids surviving, and innocent people living in distant lands being able to go about their lives without fearing being blown up or being hacked into pieces. People can attribute actions to whomever or whatever they like, I don’t care.
“When the blood stops flowing, the historians can make of it what they wish,” he said. “I’ll just smile and play with my grandkids.”[More...]
The Real George Zimmerman Speaks Out
George Zimmerman has started his own website in order to speak out. Of course, he cannot comment on the case itself, since possible prosecution is still pending. (On that point, I have no confidence Florida State Attorney Angela Corey will rule fairly. The fact she dismissed using a Grand Jury indicates to me she intends to usurp the tide of public opinion to her own advantage. I doubt she would have taken the responsibility upon herself to make a highly unpopular decision.)
At his website, Zimmerman warns against dubious agencies collecting money for his "defense fund." These agencies are not authorized by him or his legal representatives. If you would like to contribute to his defense fund, you should donate through his site and not any others.
I do feel for Zimmerman. Not because of that "life altering event" that destroyed many lives, but because of the injustice being so blatantly perpetrated by our own Government, which is supposed to protect citizens and ensure due process, and by "civil rights" leaders who seem intent on denying Zimmerman his civil rights.
It's really a tragedy all around. For Trayvon Martin, a man with his entire life ahead of him, killed so young - an all too common fate for young black men. For George Zimmerman, a good Samaritan whose decisions, justifiable or not, resulted in Martin's death and shattered his own life in the process. For the families of both men who have, in one way or another, lost a loved one. And for our entire nation, which is supposed to be a beacon for justice and equality, yet has been reduced racial division, partisan politics, and a primordial, exploitative lust for mob vengeance.
There can never be a true 'winner' in this case. The very best we can hope is that lessons are learned from the mistakes and no more lives are lost in the process.
Zimmerman's Family Challenges Eric Holder To Do His Job
A family member of George Zimmerman sent a letter to the United States Attorney General Eric Holder. In the letter, the person demanded Holder uphold the law:
The Zimmerman family is in hiding because of the threats that have been made against us, yet the DOJ has maintained an eerie silence on this matter. These threats are very public. If you haven’t been paying attention just do a Google search and you will find plenty. Since when can a group of people in the United States put a bounty on someone’s head, circulate Wanted posters publicly, and still be walking the streets?

Abdullah Dhu Al-Bajadin: Sit Back, Relax and Enjoy the 1st Issue of Al-Qaeda Airlines Magazine
Move over Samir Khan (pun? intended) "How to make a bomb in your Mom's kitchen", here comes a explosive expert, jihadi Abdullah Dhu Al-Bajadin, to take your place.
73 pages long apparently, lots of pictures?
Also five videos, with English subtitles, s/b uploaded shortly by jihadis, wouldn't want to miss out on how to manufacture chemicals at home.
Al Qaeda's many-headed media beast is back at it — a bomb-making expert has published a new e-magazine providing how-to info for would-be terrorists.Why Google bomb making instructions when you have al-Bajadinoogle it all together!
The first installment to circulate through jihadist online circles is ominously titled Al Qaeda Airlines and features an image of a silhouetted twin-engine airliner climbing into the sunset. The 73-page text was penned by longtime jihadist and explosives guru Abdullah Dhu al-Bajadin, according to the SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors jihadist Web traffic. The mysterious figure is credited with writing an Internet encyclopedia of terror tradecraft, and once fielded online questions about bomb-making from wanna-be evildoers.
From a Arabic forum:
In an attempt to change the routine that will be the new file in another area is the area of explosives - the Department of poisons, gases and drugs (sleeping pills) have chosen in the first issue to be a special substance chloroform narcotic and toxic in the same time - we chose him because he can Mujahid Alambtdy prepare it at home Mtafrh and materials in the grocery and supermarket and non-suspicious and Mtafrh all over the world and therefore will not need to Mujahid laboratory tools are expensive - with careful, dear brother to follow the wishes you all mentioned in the first issue of the new magazineChloroform! Yea, that's the ticket:
This is the issue of the Review of the files that took a long time in preparation because of the large number of studies on this article and more than one language and therefore abounded contradictions, especially in experiments on animals - anesthesia - or toxic dose - but thank God we were able to get out the file from the vortex to choose the appropriate the Mujahid at this timeh/t
Hamas' War on Women
I'd say asking women to blow themselves up qualifies, no?
Hope For Sale
(London, England) Hope goes for £1 per block.
A supermarket will this week start selling "hope" alongside its baked beans and bananas, in the latest initiative aimed at persuading the cash-strapped public to give more money to charity.It would be interesting if a store starts selling blocks of change to accompany the hope.
Wooden blocks roughly the size of box of Maltesers branded with the single word "hope" will be interspersed with groceries at branches of Budgens in Crouch End and Belsize Park in London in a pilot scheme. Shoppers will be urged to take them to the till where they will be charged £1 per block which the retailer will forward to the Alzheimer's Society – the block is returned to the shelf.
The tactic is aimed at countering a national slump in charity donations.
Obama State Department Ordered Customs Not to Search Muslim Brotherhood Delegates Despite Ties to Terrorists, Child Porn Investigation
I get the idea that diplomacy is about lying to your enemies. I'm okay with that. I'm also okay with talking to the Brotherhood. We talked to the Soviets for 50 years, in fact had a pretty big embassy. I've been to that embassy dozens of times. Seen the shell of a building that was supposed to be the embassy, the one which we had to abandon when hundreds of bugs were found in it.
We lie to them, they lie to us. That's fine.
But I really have to wonder: Does the Obama Administration understand that these people are our enemies? That no matter how much they moderate their tone, their preferred system of government is inherently antithetical to ours?
Seriously, I don't know the answer. And I suspect that the State Department is just naive enough that they actually believe that these people can be co-opted into becoming our allies.
Which might help explain this:
The State Department broke with normal procedures last week when it ordered the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) not to conduct a secondary inspection on members of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) on their way to visit government officials and think tanks in the United States.Not to mention their ties to many terrorist offshoots, like Hamas, which is the Brotherhood's official branch in Gaza.
This happened despite the fact that one member of the delegation had been implicated – though not charged – in a U.S. child pornography investigation, the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) has learned.
UPDATE: Very much related --- Why won't Obama do more to promote freedom abroad?
Convicted al Qaeda Blogger: Hey, I'm a Humanitarian!

A man convicted of conspiring to help al Qaeda has written a letter to the judge who will sentence him, highlighting his work as a teacher and his plan -- before his arrest -- to set up a diabetes treatment clinic in Saudi Arabia.
Tarek Mehanna is scheduled to be sentenced Thursday. He was convicted in December of four terror-related charges and three charges of lying to authorities.

Heartache: San Diego Bartenders Complain Mitt Romney Hasn't Stopped By for a Drink
I saw this link over at Drudge about Mitt Romney spending the weekend in San Diego along with a pic of him heading out into the surf. Now, I'm from Cali, and I can tell you that in April the water is freezing. So, I hope the guy had a much thicker wetsuit than the one depicted in the photo which is what we call a "spring suit" but which is really a misnomer since no one in their right mind would wear one in early April.
But I clicked on over the link where there was a local news video embedded about the Romneys being in town. The newsies interviewed two local bartenders who were mystified about why Mitt Romney and his family haven't been by for a few drinks.
Mitt Romney and his family not going to bars. A Mormon. Not going to a bar. It's a great mystery.
This is news? Only in San Diego my friends. Only in San Diego.
UPDATE: This might help explain it. To be honest, at first I thought the reporters were just goofing. But it turns out they really may be that dumb.
5 Jihadis Walk Into a Field With a Shovel and an IED ....
Update by DMartyr: Last video has been passed around as Jihadists getting blown up, but when originally released, it was described as friendlies getting blown up. Since we don't want to make light of brave (however, not necessarily smart) friendlies getting hurt or killed, I've replaced the video with another.
Plus, I added bonus videos of IED placers getting owned below the fold. Of course, Rusty's joke no longer makes sense, so I remove it as well. ;)

#OccupyAlbany: Occupiers Meet With An All-Star Cast Of Domestic Terrorists
A recent meeting titled The Weather Underground Meets Occupy Wall Street, held in a small city in upstate New York, was billed as a mundane book event to celebrate U.S. “political prisoner” David Gilbert's new memoir, Love and Struggle.As DMartyr always notes:
But, as revealed in a newly released video, the forum featured characters that were anything but mundane--the list reading like a veritable who’s-who of former Weather Underground activists. These were not simply low-level members but some of the more notorious radicals in the movement--men and women with ties to the infamous Bill Ayers, individuals with ties to bombing schemes on military servicemen, and convicted cop-killers
The video features only the introductory 16-minute segment and not the entire length of the Underground/Occupy meeting. Regardless, it remains quite revealing. One of the hosts of the event, Naomi Jaffe, praises Kathy Boudin, a close Ayers associate who was involved in a bomb plot gone wrong[More...]

The More Things Change
A woman filed a battery complaint against Lindsay Lohan on Saturday, accusing the actress of shoving her at a West Hollywood nightclub two nights earlier, according to a Los Angeles County Sheriff's official.Lohan denied even being present at the nightclub.
"It's just an allegation," Sgt. Chris Bowman said. "It's been received by our detectives."
A detective will check the validity of the complaint, Bowman said.
Lohan is still on a less restrictive probation and could face over 260 days if she commits any crimes.
So the world hasn't changed much over the Easter weekend. Muslims still murder Christians for peace and Lindsay is still in the news.

HE IS RISEN!
Below are excerpts from the Gospels of Matthew and John. The reason I love these two accounts is that they are both made by eyewitnesses, and like all eyewitness accounts of the same event they differ.
I especially like John's account, how he inserts himself into the story using the third person. Is it just me, or is there a bit of false humility in that? It's just so ... human. It makes it more believable to me.
From all of us, to all of you Happy Easter!
THE GOOD NEWS AS TOLD BY MATTHEW, AN EYEWITNESS
The Guard at the Tomb
The next day, the one after Preparation Day, the chief priests and the Pharisees went to Pilate. “Sir,” they said, “we remember that while he was still alive that deceiver said, ‘After three days I will rise again.’ So give the order for the tomb to be made secure until the third day. Otherwise, his disciples may come and steal the body and tell the people that he has been raised from the dead. This last deception will be worse than the first.”
“Take a guard,” Pilate answered. “Go, make the tomb as secure as you know how.” So they went and made the tomb secure by putting a seal on the stone and posting the guard.
Jesus Has Risen
After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.
There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.
The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”
So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.” ...
The Great Commission
Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
THE GOOD NEWS ACCORDING TO JOHN, AN EYEWITNESS
The Empty Tomb
Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance. So she came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!”
So Peter and the other disciple started for the tomb. Both were running, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. He bent over and looked in at the strips of linen lying there but did not go in. Then Simon Peter came along behind him and went straight into the tomb. He saw the strips of linen lying there, as well as the cloth that had been wrapped around Jesus’ head. The cloth was still lying in its place, separate from the linen. Finally the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went inside. He saw and believed. (They still did not understand from Scripture that Jesus had to rise from the dead.) Then the disciples went back to where they were staying.
Jesus Appears to Mary Magdalene
Now Mary stood outside the tomb crying. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb and saw two angels in white, seated where Jesus’ body had been, one at the head and the other at the foot.
They asked her, “Woman, why are you crying?”
“They have taken my Lord away,” she said, “and I don’t know where they have put him.” At this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus.
He asked her, “Woman, why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?”
Thinking he was the gardener, she said, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him.”
Jesus said to her, “Mary.”
She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic, “Rabboni!” (which means “Teacher”).
Jesus said, “Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’”
Mary Magdalene went to the disciples with the news: “I have seen the Lord!” And she told them that he had said these things to her.
Jesus Appears to His Disciples
On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord.
Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive anyone’s sins, their sins are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.”
Jesus Appears to Thomas
Now Thomas (also known as Didymus[a]), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. 25 So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord!”
But he said to them, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.”
A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.”
Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!”
Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
Jesus performed many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. But these are written that you may believe[b] that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.
Jesus and the Miraculous Catch of Fish
Afterward Jesus appeared again to his disciples, by the Sea of Galilee. It happened this way: Simon Peter, Thomas (also known as Didymus), Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two other disciples were together. “I’m going out to fish,” Simon Peter told them, and they said, “We’ll go with you.” So they went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing.
Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus.
He called out to them, “Friends, haven’t you any fish?”
“No,” they answered.
He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish.
Then the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” As soon as Simon Peter heard him say, “It is the Lord,” he wrapped his outer garment around him (for he had taken it off) and jumped into the water. The other disciples followed in the boat, towing the net full of fish, for they were not far from shore, about a hundred yards. When they landed, they saw a fire of burning coals there with fish on it, and some bread.
Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish you have just caught.” So Simon Peter climbed back into the boat and dragged the net ashore. It was full of large fish, 153, but even with so many the net was not torn. Jesus said to them, “Come and have breakfast.” None of the disciples dared ask him, “Who are you?” They knew it was the Lord. Jesus came, took the bread and gave it to them, and did the same with the fish. This was now the third time Jesus appeared to his disciples after he was raised from the dead.
When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?
“Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.”
Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.”
Again Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”
He answered, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.”
Jesus said, “Take care of my sheep.”
The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”
Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.”
Jesus said, “Feed my sheep. Very truly I tell you, when you were younger you dressed yourself and went where you wanted; but when you are old you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go.” Jesus said this to indicate the kind of death by which Peter would glorify God. Then he said to him, “Follow me!”
Peter turned and saw that the disciple whom Jesus loved was following them. (This was the one who had leaned back against Jesus at the supper and had said, “Lord, who is going to betray you?”) When Peter saw him, he asked, “Lord, what about him?”
Jesus answered, “If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? You must follow me.” Because of this, the rumor spread among the believers that this disciple would not die. But Jesus did not say that he would not die; he only said, “If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you?”
This is the disciple who testifies to these things and who wrote them down. We know that his testimony is true.
Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.
THE FINAL WORDS OF JOHN THE REVELATOR
He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.”
Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.
The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen.
Yet Political Correctness Is Stronger Than All
During his Easter sermon, Pope Benedict XVI had a few words about the current condition of our world, but I can't help thinking he carefully - and deliberately - avoided actually naming the one ideological force most threatening the world today.
"Life is stronger than death. Good is stronger than evil. Love is stronger than hate. Truth is stronger than lies," Benedict, wearing white robes in a symbol of new life, told the faithful in a packed St. Peter's Basilica.
Still, Benedict worried in his homily: "The darkness that poses a real threat to mankind, after all, is the fact that he can see and investigate tangible material things, but cannot see where the world is going or whence it comes, where our own life is going, what is good and what is evil."
Many of us do see where the world is going. Most of us do know what is good and what is evil. But too few of us have the courage to speak about it for fear of being branded 'racists.'

Easter Sunday in Iran: 12 Iranian Christians to Stand Trial
Via BosNewsLife[image credit]
TEHRAN, IRAN (BosNewsLife)-- Twelve Christians are to stand trial in Iran on Easter Sunday on charges including "crimes against the order", an activist assisting them with advocacy told BosNewsLife.Evil Mad Mullahs...
Jason DeMars, director of the Present Truth Ministries group, said Friday that the Christians are facing the court in the northeastern city of Rasht, though "they were earlier for the same 'crimes' last year in [the Caspian Sea city of] Bandar Anzali."
"This highlights once again, that it is illegal to be a Christian in Iran," De Mars said.
Among the Christians is Pastor Matthias Haghnejad and his wife Anahita Khadeimi, he explained. Others were identified as Mahmoud Khosh-Hal and his wife Hava Saadetmend, Amir Goldoust, Mina Goldoust, Zhaina Bahremand, Fatemah Modir-Nouri, Mehrdad Habibzade, Milad Radef, Behzad Taalipasand and Amin Pishkar.

Happy Good Friday / Passover **Sticky**
For our Jewish friends, Chag Pesach Sameach. For we Christians, have a blessed Good Friday. I know Howie already posted about it, but I wanted John's version of the events that happened on that day up. In his gospel, John reminds his readers that he was there. That he saw this happen with his own eyes.
And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King! But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar. Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away.
And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha: Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst. And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS.
This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin. Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews. Pilate answered, What I have written I have written.
Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also his coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.
They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did.
Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene.
When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!
Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.
After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.
Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a sponge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth.
When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
Now it was the day of Preparation, and the next day was to be a special Sabbath. Because the Jewish leaders did not want the bodies left on the crosses during the Sabbath, they asked Pilate to have the legs broken and the bodies taken down. The soldiers therefore came and broke the legs of the first man who had been crucified with Jesus, and then those of the other.
But when they came to Jesus and found that he was already dead, they did not break his legs. Instead, one of the soldiers pierced Jesus’ side with a spear, bringing a sudden flow of blood and water.
The man who saw it has given testimony, and his testimony is true. He knows that he tells the truth, and he testifies so that you also may believe.
These things happened so that the scripture would be fulfilled: “Not one of his bones will be broken,” and, as another scripture says, “They will look on the one they have pierced.”
Later, Joseph of Arimathea asked Pilate for the body of Jesus. Now Joseph was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly because he feared the Jewish leaders. With Pilate’s permission, he came and took the body away. He was accompanied by Nicodemus, the man who earlier had visited Jesus at night. Nicodemus brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about seventy-five pounds. Taking Jesus’ body, the two of them wrapped it, with the spices, in strips of linen. This was in accordance with Jewish burial customs.
At the place where Jesus was crucified, there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb, in which no one had ever been laid. Because it was the Jewish day of Preparation and since the tomb was nearby, they laid Jesus there.
Iraq War Veteran & Wounded Warrior Jeremy Feldbusch Throws Strike On Opening Day 1st Pitch
Did I mention he is blind?
Sports can be like a bubble. Strangers who happen to be fans of a certain sport or team can get together and enjoy each others' company for hours. And sometimes, there are moments at a stadium or ballpark where something truly special happens. Something that really is worth celebrating.God Bless him!
At the Pittsburgh Pirates home opener on Thursday, Jeremy Feldbusch did what so many other people have done before him. He was given the opportunity to throw out the first pitch in front of a sellout crowd.
Feldbusch's toss was a little bit different. Feldbusch is blind in both eyes from serving a tour of duty in Iraq. According to his biography on the Champions of Change website, it happened when a piece of shrapnel took out his right eye and damaged the optic nerve in the left frontal lobe of his brain.
Worst President in History Graph of the Day: How Will the "Buffet Rule" Help the Deficit?
That's some serious plan you got there to balance the budget, President Obama.
*I've been stealing a lot graphs from Ace lately, but I have three excuses for that. 1) I'm lazy 2) We share a server so I can just steal images w/ impunity 3) We're pretty much on the same page about what makes this election so critical, and what makes Obama an exceptionally terrible President. I mean, this guy makes me long for the good ol' days of Bill Clinton. Or Jimmy Carter. And since the MSM is trying to distract us in any way they can from the debt crisis, it's our job to spread this information around.

Wow, WAVY livestream showing the crash site here
Hoodies & Hijabs
The critical leftist media and racebaiters believe:
The Trayvon Martin killing was a hate-crime because:
1.) George Zimmerman was 'white' and, therefore, must have been a racist.
2.) Trayvon Martin was black and wore a hoodie. Therefore, he was a victim of racial profiling.
3.) The police are white and, therefore, cover-up crimes committed by whites against blacks.
4.) No cuts or evidence of broken nose on grainy video footage. If any cuts and bruises on Zimmerman's head do exist, they could have been self-inflicted.
5.) Just because there's a new face in a gated community is no reason for a neighborhood watch volunteer to get suspicious, unless he is racist.
6.) Screams heard on the 911 tape might not have been Zimmerman's. The fact Zimmerman told police at the scene minutes after the shooting he was screaming for help might have just been a devious ploy by Zimmerman to cover his ass in case Trayvon Martin's screams were recorded.
7.) Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, followed Martin after accurately answering the 911 operator's question about race by saying, "he looks black." Just because Zimmerman lost sight of Martin and started to return to his vehicle doesn't mean he stopped following.
8.) Zimmerman is heard saying "It's f--king cold" during the 911 call, but if you turn the volume down until it's barely audible and you tilt your head a certain way, it sounds like "f--king coon."
9.) Zimmerman said, "they always get away" proving he hates when blacks are not arrested or shot.
10.) All the witness accounts support Zimmerman's claims, which proves all the witnesses are either white racists or Uncle Toms.
11.) George Zimmerman had a gun, proving he was out looking for trouble.
12.) Trayvon Martin had some Skittles and tea, proving he couldn't have attacked anyone.
13.) Martin looked cute and innocent.
14.) Zimmerman looked rough and once wore county lock-up orange.
15.) Martin looked like President Obama's son would look if he had one.
16.) Zimmerman didn't.
The Shaima Alawadi killing was a hate-crime because:
1.) a note left at the scene said it was.

Child Abuse on Display in Gaza
I want to be a terrorist when I grow up!
You know how Hamas is always blaming Islamic Jihad when missiles are fired from Gaza into Israel? It wasn't us, it was Islamic Jihad!
If Hamas and Islamic Jihad really aren't in bed together, then what is Hamas doing allowing their "rivals" hold rallies in the Gaza strip? You don't see them giving the same privilege to Fatah.
Thanks to John.
Report: US in Proxy War with Pakistan
Also, US on Verge of Finding Zawahiri
Bruce Riedel, an erstwhile Central Intelligence Agency analyst and senior National Security Council official in the Clinton administration .... [says] "The United States and Pakistan effectively are fighting a proxy war in Afghanistan," he said, and noted that "it is the ISI (Inter-Services Intelligence) that makes it possible for the Afghan Taliban to function as it functions today."It's one of those things, though, that you wonder if saying this kind of thing out loud is useful -- because it's the truth -- or counterproductive, because there are actually some parts of the Pakistani military and ISI who are on our side?
Riedel said, "If there was no ISI support, there would still be an Afghan Taliban, but not at the level of capability that they have today."
Which brings us to the real problem: the Pakistani state itself.
The problem with Pakistan is not the number of bad apples spoiling the barrel, it's that the barrel itself was ill conceived in the first place. The country was founded on the notion that Muslims need their own country. A theory that "Indians" are different from "Pakistanis".
It substitutes religion for ethnicity or nationality. Muslims cannot be ruled by non-Muslims. How do you fight off extremism when the very foundational theory of your state is Islamic supremacism?
The only really piece of good news here is some speculation that we have a bead on Zawahiri:
Riedel also said he believed that Osama bin Laden's deputy, Ayman al-Zawahiri is somewhere in Pakistan occupied Kashmir, "relatively close to Rawalpindi," and that the Central Investigation Agency would find him "sometime in the foreseeable future. They are on the track. They have demonstrated, in finding Osama bin Laden, that they've cracked the code to penetrating how the Al Qaeda communicates, and they will find Ayman al-Zawahiri."I don't know how reliable that last part is, but if it's true then let's git-r-done and kill the SOB already.
Rep Joe Walsh (R Ill) Questions Labor Dept Propaganda..
Thanks to Adam Kredo, more waste of our hard earned tax dollars has been exposed. Also, thank you Rep Walsh for not ignoring this:
I feel violated just thinking my money went to anything race baiters are in. Yuk
Rep. Joe Walsh (R., Ill.) is calling on Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis to explain why the department posted a series of overtly political posters throughout the building.
Walsh is responding to a Free Beacon report revealing that signs posted in at least 20 DOL elevators depict Secretary Hilda Solis carrying a bullhorn and rallying alongside the Rev. Al Sharpton. Next to the pictures is a quote from Solis that reads in part: “We all march in our own way.”
Walsh, who sits on the Congressional Oversight Committee, condemned the posters as “propaganda” and demanded to know how much money the department has spent to produce the signs.[Continue reading]
Obama is hosting the Women's Economic forum today with nary a conservative woman in site, but, Secretary Solis is there!! I had a bit of fun with Solis on a hastag, which conservatives quickly overtook - #womenseconforum. I linked to Rep Walsh's statement. Not that it will do any good, but at least I tried, I don't like feeling dirty.
Arab Spring! Tunisians Jailed Seven Years for Insulting Muhammad on Facebook
But don't worry, Obi-One has explained that these are just the pains of New Democracy and we shouldn't worry about these countries becoming al-Qaeda inspired Sharia states.
Two young Tunisians have been sentenced to seven years in prison for posting cartoons of the prophet Mohammad on Facebook, in a case that has fuelled allegations the country’s new Islamist leaders are gagging free speech.Hope.....change...
“They were sentenced. . . to seven years in prison for violation of morality, and disturbing public order,” said Chokri Nefti, a justice ministry spokesman.
Pay The Lady
What a bunch of giant walking dicks the folks who work at the Moorhead Minnesota Police Department are.
Stacy Knutson, a struggling Minnesota waitress and mother of five, says she was searching for a "miracle" to help her family with financial problems.Update: Sunlight is indeed the best disinfectant.
But that "miracle" quickly came and went after police seized a $12,000 tip.
Police seized the money and originally told Knutson that if no one claimed it after 60 days, it was hers. She was later told 90 days, Richie said. When 90 days passed, Knutson was still without the $12,000.
Police told Knutson the money was being held as "drug money" and she would receive a $1,000 reward instead,
Still when it was just she and the right thing to do against them? Meh, who cares. But now....
I'd say the county attorney and police chief opponents' poll numbers just went way up.
Henceforth I Call You Not Servants
This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
These things I command you, that ye love one another. If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me.
If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin. He that hateth me hateth my Father also. If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.
But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause. But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me: And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.
These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended. They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.

DNC Appoints 'Jewbag' To Collect 'Jew Cash'
A young staffer of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.) has been appointed the DNC's Jewish outreach liaison. The staffer, Dani Gilbert, posted pictures on Facebook of her and her friends holding cash and referring to themselves as "Jewbags" and the "Jew cash money team."

It's Only Funny Until Someone Gets Hurt - Then It's HILARIOUS!
A cringe-worthy story from the "Oh, no you didn't go there" files.
Reber, the victim told cops, first struck him repeatedly in the head before latching onto his scrotum and “squeezing as hard as she could.”
The victim recalled that Reber “refused to let go of his scrotum,” but that he was “finally able to pry his scrotum from Reber’s hand” after they fell to the ground during the scuffle. The man then called an ambulance, which transported him to Ball Memorial Hospital.
A cop reported that the man had blood on his shirt and “a long wide tear on his scrotum,” which had been “completely torn loose from his body.”
Holy crap! They fell OFF? I'm as shocked as when I discovered nipples were removable as well!
Thank god the right hospital was nearby...
Lol, spare me in the comments. I know what the writer meant, it just sounded so much more fun the way I read it. ;)
Worst President Ever Chart of the Day: Obama's Road to Bankrupting the US
HT: Hot Air
Over at Commentary magazine Alana Goodman has a second chart up worth seeing. While Obama's "responsible" budget leads America down a path where interest on the debt exceeds national defense spending, the Paul Ryan budget -- endorsed by Mitt Romney and castigated by Obama as "irresponsible" -- doesn't go there. Under the Republican plan spending on interest on the debt is smaller than on national defense, and over the long run leads to a balanced budget. Granted, the Ryan plan doesn't get to a balanced budget for a very very long time, but the Obama plan (or lack of it) never balances the budget. Seriously, he doesn't eve set that as a goal.
Azzam.com Webmaster Babar Ahmad Coming to America
n an exclusive interview with the BBC, Babar Ahmad accused the police and prosecutors of mishandling his case.However after Azzam.com was taken down shortly after 9/11 2001, by what Azzam described a Zionist Khinspiracy , he sought web hosting in the US. He used that website to recruit, raise funds and publish propaganda in support of the Chechen Mujahideen and also the Taliban.
Mr Ahmad has been battling against extradition to the United States. He will find out next Tuesday if he will be sent to America.
The Metropolitan Police and Crown Prosecution Service have denied impropriety.
The unprecedented interview in the maximum security Long Lartin Prison came after the BBC challenged a government ban on filming Mr Ahmad.
...In his BBC interview, he says that the seven years he has spent in prison battling the US warrant are the result of a failure by British authorities to charge him.
He claims material seized during his arrest was sent to the United States, rather than being used against him in a trial in the UK.
"Had the Police and CPS put me on trial in 2003, which they have could have done, I would have left prison years ago - regardless of the verdict at trial.
12. AHMAD helped create, operate and maintain, and cause to create, operate and maintain, the websites referred to in paragraph 10 in Connecticut, Nevada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Malaysia and elsewhere, and other internet media which posted materials designed and intended to recruit mujahideen, raise funds for violent jihad, recruit personnel for the ChechenSo all the evidence was not gathered in the UK as Mr. Ahmad states.
Mujahideen, the Taliban and associated groups, and give instructions for travel to Pakistan and Afghanistan to fight with these groups, provide instructions for the surreptitious transfer of funds to the Taliban, and solicit military items for these groups, including gas masks and night vision goggles.
..It was part of the conspiracy that defendant AHMAD and other members of the
conspiracy provided through AZZAM PUBLICATIONS web sites instruction and a form letter to assist individuals in transporting cash funds from or through a place in the United States to a place outside the United States, to wit, Pakistan, for the purpose of delivering these funds to the Taliban.
Also for those of you who believe that supporting the Taliban online is just an exercise of Free speech and that companies and individuals who knowingly do so are not subject to prosecution...
On July 4, 1999, President of the United States William J. Clinton declared a national emergency to deal with the threat posed by Al-Qaida and the Taliban. Specifically, the President found that:Although its unlawful, the Taliban and other FTOs are known to maintain many websites, twitter feeds and Youtube channels. The Obama administration has done a terrible job of enforcing these sanctions to say the least.
[T]he actions and policies of the Taliban in Afghanistan, in allowing territory under its control in Afghanistan to be used as a safe haven and base of operations for Usama bin Ladin and the Al-Qaida organization who have committed and threaten to continue to commit acts of violence against the United States and its nationals, constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States.
In his Executive Order 13129, the President prohibited, among other things, United States persons from making or receiving any contribution of funds, goods, or services to or for the benefit of the Taliban. The Executive Order also blocked all property and interests in property of the Taliban and prohibited trade-related transactions by United States persons involving the territory of Afghanistan controlled by the Taliban. Further, the Executive Order prohibited United States persons from engaging in transactions for the Taliban's benefit and 3 prohibited any person from engaging in such transactions from the United States, including
sending money and military material to the Taliban

They Don't Speak For Us
[I]n a taped interview that will air this weekend on Bloomberg News, the chairman of the Republican Party is repudiating the Obama administration and top Democrats who claim there is a “war on women” because Republicans are pushing a bill that would stop the Obama HHS mandate.
The mandate, which requires religious groups to pay for birth control and drugs that may cause abortions for their employees, has drawn strong opposition from pro-life groups because of its pro-abortion and anti-conscience problems. That opposition has led to a backlash from Democrats and pro-abortion groups claiming conservatives and pro-life advocates are engaging in a “war on women.”[More..]
Meanwhile, a conservative women’s group, Smart Girl Politics Action, has launched “They Don’t Speak for Us,” a new video asking women to put the conversation back on real issues important to women.
Liberal bitches definitely don't speak for me!

Good Grades Through Good Sex
(Mannheim, Germany) A free callboy service is being offered to female students at the University of Mannheim to relieve stress from the pressures of school.
As a business model, it's a win-win formula: Two potential partners set out to profit from a mutual transaction. That must be how the three business students from the University of Mannheim in southwestern Germany, who call themselves Oskar, Christopher and Julius, imagined things to be when they decided to offer their services by creating what could best be described as a free brothel.Reportedly, five callboy one-night stands have occurred to date in Mannheim while other franchises of Bib:Love are being contemplated in Tübingen and Ulm.
They offer stressed-out, female students uncomplicated and anonymous one-night stands.[…]
They call their project Bib:Love -- a reference to the first letters of the German word Bibliothek, meaning library -- and the slogans which they have plastered on posters around the university's campus promise "Good Grades through Good Sex."

"It's F--king Cold"
The racial slur that never was. The media and the liberal propaganda machine has been going out of its way to make this non-racial story into a racial tinder box.
I posted a couple of nights ago that George Zimmerman, a man leftists have branded a racist based solely on inconclusive conjecture, has a history of fighting racial bias. But after weeks of headlining allegations of racism, the media is reluctantly examining alternatives to their one-sided, sloppy journalism.
Now listen to the painfully PG version of CNN's report:
I know its a lot to ask, especially since a person's life is at stake, but I can only hope the media will give this 'new' evidence the same attention and exposure they gave initial, erroneous conclusions.
I won't hold my breath.
Wacky Lottery 'Winner' Gets More Greedy
So far, there is no evidence this wacky woman really won the lottery. Who, in their right mind, goes public with claims of a multi-million dollar lottery win but then delays collecting the money?
It's bad enough, if she does have a winning ticket, that she snubbed her co-workers, who I believe did help purchase the ticket Wilson claims is the winner. But in one interview, Wilson made a very bizarre comment to reporter Mike Hellgren:
Hellgren: “You told your kids. Are they excited?”
Wilson: “They’re excited because it’s a different life for me.”
Does she plan not share with her immediate family? Wouldn't going from minimum wage to multi-millionaire be a new and different life for the entire family? Or is she simply that greedy?
I don't think this woman won anything. I think she's just a major attention whore.

At first, air traffic control didn't believe him, Blennerhassett said, but they started to take him seriously when he asked for a snake handler to meet the plane.
Why Would Terrorists Need Their Own Facebook?
The advantage and attraction of social networking isn't lost on the jihadist community, apparently. New postings on the Ansar al-Mujahideen Arabic forum have been discussing a proposal by one contributor to create a Facebook-like site for jihadists, according to SITE Intel Group, which monitors jihadists activities online.A quick search show that really there is no need for them to create their own when we're more than willing to host them on Facebook and Youtube.
The idea has surfaced as various jihadi sites have mysteriously gone dark, leaving some to speculate whether there was a covert takedown by a spy agency.
In a posting, the user identified as Rakan al-Ashja'i notes that the terror adherents depend on different online forums and social networking sites for posting propaganda and discussions.

أطلقوا سراح"أم سيف الله الأنصارية" نطلق لكم أسيركم
ـــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــ ـــــTo the German Government:
Release ‘Umm Sayf Allah Al-Ansariya,’ We’ll Release Your Prisonerـــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــ ـــــ
In the name of Allah the Most Merciful the Most Compassionate
Praise God that said: And why should ye not fight in the cause of Allah and of tho se who, being weak, are illtreated. Men, women, and children, whose cry is "Our Lord! rescue us from this town, whose people are oppressors; and raise for us from Thee One who will protect; and raise for us from Thee one who will help", and prayer and peace upon our master Muhammad and upon his pure family and companions, and thereafter:
We heard about the tragedy that the oppressed Muslim sister ‘Umm Sayf Allah Al-Ansariya’ (Phyllis Loftis) is living in the prisons of the Crusader Germany, and we were saddened, just as every free Muslim was saddened, by the confirmed news that mentioned her facing a very bad treatment, such as forcing her to take off her Hijab and humiliating her dignity with insults and beating, and forbidding her from the basic rights. And these are numerous injustices the country that claims to respect human rights is practicing against a weakened woman whose only crime is that she supported the just affairs of her Muslim Ummah.
And we, from the base of supporting the weakened Muslims in earth’s east and west, and in seeking to defend the oppressed, inform the country of Germany the following:
One. We inform you that your citizen ‘Edgar Fritz Raupach’ is held captive by the Mujahideen of Al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb.
Two. We demand that you release the sister ‘Umm Sayf Allah Al-Ansariya’ from prison and compensate her financially for the damages she faced due to your injustices, and award her the freedom whether to stay [in Germany] or receive political asylum in a country that protects her rights and dignity. And in exchange for that we will release your citizen.
Three. We warn you that the correct course of the negotiations file over this prisoner requires speed from you and not avoid preservation of his life. Also on this occasion, you should learn from the recent lesson taught to Britain by the Mujahideen…as the disingenuous act of her government and the wrong course of the negotiations file caused the death of the British and Italian captives.
Four. We have attached along with this statement a video-recorded outcry by your prisoner in which he demands you to preserve his life.
And in the end, we call upon the family and friends of the hostage, and the German public opinion, to mobilize quickly and pressure the German government to force it to end the suffering of the oppressed Muslim sister, whose release would be the only guarantee to preserve the life of your prisoner and his free return to you.

Iraqi-American Woman May Be Victim Of Honor Killing
Not that we, at The Jawa Report, didn't suspect it in the first place. I just wonder if the left-wing bloggers and the media, who refused to give Zimmerman the benefit of doubt despite evidence that supported his accounting of events yet so gullibly accepted the note in Shaima Alawadi's murder as absolute proof it was a hate crime, will admit to their mistake.
Search warrant records obtained Wednesday in the beating death of an Iraqi-American woman show a family in turmoil and cast doubt on the likelihood that her slaying was a hate crime.
Shaima Alawadi, a 32-year-old mother of five, was apparently planning to divorce her husband and move to Texas when she was killed, a family member told investigators, according to the court documents.
The records, filed in El Cajon Superior Court, also reveal Alawadi’s 17-year-old daughter, Fatima Alhimidi, who called 911 to report the attack, was distraught over her pending arranged marriage to a cousin.
One step forward - UT SanDiego casts doubt it was a hate crime.
Two steps back - UT San Diego refuses to to call it a possible "honor killing."
More questions that bear asking - Why did authorities in California allow the family to leave the country? Were the investigators initially fooled into believing it was, in fact, a hate crime, or was it just too politically incorrect to prevent Muslim murder suspects to leave the country? Did authorities fear backlash from the Muslim community if the family was not allowed to leave?

Forget the War on Women, What About the Women's War on ... Everyone?
In this case the women in question are female members of al Qaeda:
Women are becoming more lethal. In jihadist organizations — including even Al Qaeda, which had long banned females from violent roles — women are increasingly taking part in terrorist actions.If any of you saw Act of Valor you'll see some examples of this.
Since 1985, terrorism's so-called invisible women have accounted for a quarter of fatal attacks in Iraq, Egypt, Israel, Lebanon, Chechnya, Sri Lanka, Morocco and Palestine. My research found that by mid-2008, women had acted as suicide bombers 21 times in Iraq's markets and other civilian venues patronized by Shiites.
Also, if you haven't seen Act of Valor .... why do you hate America?
#OccupyWallSt: Unrepentant Domestic Terrorist Ayers PO'd Military Was Respected At Airport

Report: French Islamists Planned Kidnapping of Jewish Magistrate
More of #Toulouse shooters buds no doubt:
AFP - Some of the 16 suspected Islamic militants detained in France allegedly planned to kidnap a Jewish magistrate and other people, a source close to the investigation said on Tuesday.BTW, did you hear about this: France Kicks Militant Islamist Out Of Country, Promptly Moves To The UK…
"It looks like some of them planned to carry out kidnappings including that of a magistrate who has a Jewish-sounding name," the source said.
Another source confirmed that a Jewish magistrate from Lyon in central France was to be targeted.
The head of France's Central Directorate for Domestic Intelligence (DCRI), Bernard Squarcini, said on Saturday that those arrested the previous day were French nationals involved in "collective war-like training, linked to a violent, religious indoctrination".
Some of those arrested belonged to a suspected extremist group called Forsane Alizza, he said, and had been involved in paintball gun games.
Impeach SCOTUS If They Dare to Thwart the One
The problem with the current court is not merely that there is a good chance it will strike down a clearly constitutional law. The problem is that this decision would be the latest salvo in what seems to be a sustained effort on the part of the Roberts Court to return the country to the Gilded Age.Yes, exactly. SCOTUS wants us all transported back in time.
One of the scariest parts of this imbecilic diatribe is that the author is a law professor.

Supreme Court Scolds Obama For Warning
But then again, they shouldn't have to - it should have been covered in basic high school civics. (Do they still teach civics in high school, or has it been replaced with "Diversity training" and "Multiculturalism" classes?)
Anyway, Andrea Ryan at Gateway Pundit says it best:
The three branches of government are co-equal to prevent this sort of tyrannical behavior. But, Obama thinks he’s the only branch of government and the other two just interfere. Maybe next he’ll threaten to add six more Justices to the Supreme Court, like Roosevelt did 75 years ago.
I'm certain Obama and his cronies will find a way to circumvent any Supreme Court ruling against this health care abomination. It's not like the rule of law or the Constitution actually matters to this Administration...
Al Qaeda in Somalia Attack Theater
Here are your brave mujahideen. Clearly a theater packed with women and children is a legitimate military target. And since it was a
suicide bomber shahid that blew up the theater, you know the attack was intentional. No we didn't know there were women and children inside excuse for Allah's holy warriors this time.
Terror Free Somalia has exclusive photos of the after effects of the attack.
Update by Howie: Over lunch I was listening to NPR's Fresh Air where Jeffrey Gettleman recounts his reporting on Somalia and al-Shabaab.
In Somalia, we hadn't heard much about the rape issue. Of course, we knew it was going to go up during a conflict, that women are going to be exposed, that women were on the run with their families, but we weren't hearing a lot of detail. But then through sources of mine, we started hearing more and more. And this winter, I went to do a story specifically on this problem and I met more than a dozen women who gave me very detailed accounts of being raped, many of them by the Shabab."The entire podcast becomes available at 5:00 EDT. The quote above is from a section on al-Shabaab forced marriage and rape of young girls in Somalia. Not given in the print version is the Gettleman's explanation of how al-Shabaab justified taking young girls from their families. They families were given a choice, give your daughter or we'll kill her and the rest of you. Their justification was that their commanders needed women and to give them was helping the cause of Islam. Rejection of the offer was regarded as Un-Islamic or failure to support Islam and the penalty was death. Abu Manssou al-Amiriki, a famous al-Shabaab militant, is rumored to have taken and divorced up to 29 Somali girls. discarding current wives whenever he was about to exceed the Islamic quota of four by taking a new one.
That's some choice. Remember this is the type of Islamic Sharia that al-Qaeda and its allies wish to impose everywhere they gain power.

In December 2010, the son of a local police officer sucker punched a homeless black man outside a bar. The white attacker strutted away from the downed man, obviously proud of his cowardly achievement. Police arrived at the scene and declined to arrest him, despite the fact the unprovoked attack was captured on video.
Over the course of the next several weeks, the community expressed outrage but few stepped up to do anything to demand justice for the homeless man, Sherman Ware. The black community was indifferent. The NAACP ignored the incident. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton were nowhere to be found.
But one man was so determined to obtain justice for Sherman, he did what few others were willing to do. He stepped up and went door-to-door in black communities handing out fliers about the incident. He posted the fliers, put them on cars in parking lots, waited outside churches to give them to parishioners. He worked tirelessly exposing this injustice.
In January, his efforts finally paid off. In part, thanks to public pressure after the video was posted on Youtube, Justin Collison, a man with a violent history, was charged with sucker punching Sherman Ware.
In case you haven't guessed, the man who worked so hard to bring justice for a homeless black man when the NAACP and other civil rights leaders looked the other way is named below the fold.
(Hat Tip: IHateTheMedia)
Update: This story is breaking, so some of the details weren't so clear when I wrote the above. The man (named below the fold) was attempting to have the police officers held accountable for not arresting the attacker. The Daily Caller has more, including a copy of the flier distributed.
The man was George Zimmerman.
These noble efforts by Zimmerman to help a stranger get deserved justice were related by a family member who is now in hiding due to death threats. The family member sent this letter to the Sanford Chapter of the NAACP, which has continued to perpetuate the smear that George Zimmerman is a racist who killed Trayvon Martin for being black.
Don't expect to hear this story in the mainstream media.
Worst President Ever: One More Day of Obama Another $38 Billion in Debt
Yesterday the federal government under President Obama spent precisely $38,247,317,215.30 more than it took in.
That's one day under this Administration's failed policies. A single day and over $38 BILLION (that's with a "B") more in debt.
No wonder the media wants to talk about anything other than the economy and the debt crisis.
You can now return to talking about Treyvon Martin as you have been directed by your betters in the media.

Good News: al Qaeda Coming to New York!
Okay, maybe not, but over at a forum known to play host to many members of al Qaeda this has been posted.
Let me caution that if anything this is an indication of al Qaeda's aspirations not their imminent intentions. In other words, al Qaeda wants to hit New York again and although they've been doing their best to carry through ... we've been doing better.
However, the image itself wasn't a threat at all.
The picture itself was posted in an Arabic jihadi forum, but in a section which focuses on how to make images. It was used as an example of how to merge two images in Photoshop. So, this is less of a direct threat than it is more of an example to other jihadis how to use photoshop successfully to scare the kafir.
And you know what? It worked. I saw Rep. Peter King on Fox News this morning discussing his letter to Hillary Clinton asking the State Department to list Boko Haram as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO), something they've been dragging their feet on. And Fox showed this very image and asked Rep. King whether an attack was coming.
That's how psychological warfare works. Al Qaeda does a silly photoshop, and America holds its breath.
But two can play at that game. I happen to know that we do quite a bit of psychological warfare of our own. The thing is, we're better at it then they are.
The evidence? There is none. Which just happens to be the best marker of successful deception.

It's All Because Of Israel
President Barack Obama is blaming Israel for rising oil prices which is harming the U.S. economy:
The Obama administration is blaming Israel for the recent rise in global crude oil prices, according to a Sunday report in The World Tribune. The rise in fuel prices is deemed as harming the U.S. economy and has also hurt Obama in the polls as he seeks re-election in November.
Frankly, I think it's a nice change from blaming Bush...
More than three years into his presidency, and he still can't accept any responsibility. Only in Obama's narcissistic mind is his own legacy more important than the safety and security of an entire nation of people.

Occupy Lotto! I Won! I Won!
Mega Millions mania has plunged a Maryland McDonald’s into a bubbling cauldron of controversy hotter than a deep-fried apple pie.I bet last week she was all for spreading the wealth. No?
Workers at the fast-food joint who pooled their cash for tickets are furious at a colleague who claims she won with a ticket she bought for herself and has no intention of sharing.
“We had a group plan, but I went and played by myself. [The ‘winning’ ticket] wasn’t on the group plan,” McDonald’s “winner’’ Mirlande Wilson 37, told The Post yesterday, insisting she alone bought one of the three tickets nationwide that will split a record $656 million payout.
Filed under Assmaggots.
Update: Press conference scheduled:
Can one even assume that today is the day that Ms Wilson finds the courage to collect her winnings? The day she confesses that she has no winning ticket? Or that she has a sudden change of heart and is now willing to share the money or that she simply wishes to make up with everyone and resume her old life before this weekend’s fiasco arrived at her doorstep (where one can come across camped out journalists)?Popcorn please.

Illinois Teacher Skips Town with Female Student
(Cicero, Illinois) A 29-year-old teacher formerly at Acacia Academy in LaGrange Highlands, Laureth "Laurie" May, has been accused of kidnapping and sexual assault for skipping town and engaging in sex with a 17-year-old former female student.
Family and friends say her erratic behavior of late was out of character. Her fiance claims she was suffering from post-partum depression.May was booked into custody with bond set at an unusually high $500,000. Typically, teacher-student sex defendants are assessed much lower bond amounts.
May was found with her three sons and former student, Destiny Gruba, 17, in Florida on March 20.

Anna Chapman White House Sex Scandal
Steven Chu or Lesbian Lover?
Was Anna Chapman Trying to Seduce Steven Chu?
the lucky guy Russian spy Anna Chapman was about to ... what's the technical term here, get-it-on with? -- in the White House?
Also, would President Obama mind us calling her a slut? But the good kind. You know, hot.
Another revelation in the series is the real reason why the FBI swooped on Russian spy Anna Chapman in 2010. Top officials feared the glamorous Russian agent wanted to seduce one of US President Barack Obama's inner circle. Frank Figliuzzi, the FBI's head of counterintelligence, reveals how she got "closer and closer to higher and higher ranking leadership... she got close enough to disturb us".Okay, so Anna Chapman was trying to seduce someone in Obama's cabinet. Lucky guy.
The fear that Chapman would compromise a senior US official in a "honey trap" was a key reason for the arrest and deportation of the Russian spy ring of 10 people, of which she was a part, in 2010. "We were becoming very concerned," he says. "They were getting close enough to a sitting US cabinet member that we thought we could no longer allow this to continue."
Or was it even a guy? Ace notes that the gender of the individual she was trying to seduce isn't given in the story. Nice. Except, isn't the implication then ... a female cabinet member .... Chapman is in .... New York ...
Oh, G*d, please say he didn't go there! Oh, yes, he went there.
My mental eye, it burns!
Okay, that can't be the implication. I don't think my mental health could handle even the remotest possibly. So, if this is true at all -- and there are some serious doubts here, but has that ever stopped us from speculating? -- it was a guy.
But who is the lucky guy? I'm trying to track this down, but wasn't she or the guys she was working with doing some rather low level recon at nuclear energy conferences? If that's right, then that would mean the guy she was getting close to was ......
Sec. of Energy Steven "I-Was-for-$5-A-Gallon-Gas-Before-I-Was-Against-It" Chu.
I think I've been selling Anna Chapman short. Up until this point I figured she was just some bimbo that used her good looks to become famous. But to pretend you're into that? That takes talent.
I predict a long and fruitful career in Russia's version of Hollywood.
And now what you've all been waiting for .... the reason why I posted this in the first place ...... not safe for work Anna Chapman photos and links below!
UPDATE: I updated the post with the lesbian angle because frankly I didn't see what Ace was getting at before. And you know what? My life was better off without that thought occupying space in my mind. Much better off.
Now excuse me. I'm off to therapy.
Pics still below the fold.
Sorry. The Jawa Report editor-at-large (my wife) will not let us post nude photos of Anna Chapman. But email Howie and he might send you some. Half of his C drive is devoted exclusively to Anna Chapman nude photos and videos!
White House To Welcome Former Terror Group Leader And Accused Human Organ Trafficker
Joe Biden will welcome Hashim Thaçi to the White House this week. Thaçi is accused of operating a human organ trafficking crime ring that murdered Serbs and then harvested and sold their organs in the years leading up to the Kosovo War.
Thaçi was also the leader of the KLA - the Kosovo Liberation Army. The KLA (also known as UÇK) was a radical Islamic terrorist group accused of inhumane cruelty, rapes, torture, murders, and human rights violations. The media, at the time, opted to ignore these reports and instead focus on Serbian "concentration camps" that later turned out to be false.
The KLA was officially disbanded in 1999, but the group's leadership is still very active in Kosovar politics.
From my own blog archives:
A Muslim youth snaps a picture of his friend urinating into the ruins of a church freshly destroyed by other Muslims (Kosovo, 2004).
Notice the church columns were tagged with the UÇK logo years after the organization was supposedly disbanded.
I blogged extensively about Kosovo before joining The Jawa Report. You can read some of the background of the KLA terrorist organization and the Kosovo War HERE.
