Is the White House Orchestrating Lies About Romney? I'd Bet On It

I find this all too coincidental.

First, the White House accuses Charles Krauthammer — and, by extension Mitt Romney — of being a liar. When caught, they double down and use the "fake but accurate" defense. But when that didn't pass the smell test the White House was forced to apologize.

Remember, the real attack here was not aimed at Krauthammer, it was squarely at Mitt who, while abroad, had brought up the Churchill statue.

So, the White House calls Mitt a "liar" when, in fact, it's the White House that lied.

Then, in two totally unrelated moves, Obama runs an ad which not-so-subtly intones that Romney is a felon. Followed up by a smear by Harry Reid that he "heard" from a Bain "investor" that Romney had evaded taxes.

Three stories, all accusing Romney of being a liar, a felon, and a tax cheat within three days and I'm supposed to believe that the White House isn't orchestrating this?? I'm supposed to believe that the fabrication that was the Churchill bust story was a ..... mistake?

Sorry, I ain't buying it.

In fact, if the journalist that was interviewing Harry Reid had any balls he'd have asked him if his "friend" that tipped him on Romney's fabricated malfeasance didn't work in the White House?

Because if I was a betting man, that's where my money would be.

Journo, Not Terrorists, Banned from Twitter

shabaab_twitter_account.jpg

Howie gave us the meh on why journalist Gery Adams getting his Twitter account yanked is really nothing compared to what we on the right have experienced in social media. I had my Facebook account yanked, no media outrage there.

But to put this into even better perspective, consider the fact that several terrorist organizations have their own Twitter accounts.

For instance, the al Qaeda linked al Shabaab Tweets here and here and here. Notice that all the users identify themselves as belonging to or associated with the State Department designated terrorist organization, and that they do so in English. That last link being an official spokesperson for the terrorist group.

Or check out the Twitter page for Hamas' armed wing, the al-Qssam Brigades. They're not hiding who they are. The Twitter page tells us that it is, "The official web site of Al Qassam Brigades in Palestine."

The Taliban even have their own Twitter account. We're at war with the Taliban.

Not only is that really outrageous, it's also illegal.

So, this whole outrage by the media is simply naval gazing: media outrage because it affects .... the media. The same goes for the Romney "kiss my ass" outrage of the day. The "victim" here was a member of the .... media.

These people are the enemy of common sense.

UPDATE: It gets worse -- the guy's Twitter suspension was lifted. I don't mind that, not at all. But why was it lifted? After much outrage and "backlash".

When was the last time the media foamed at the mouth over something truly worth a bit of backlash?

I dunno, like maybe the fact that people who kill innocent civilians and American servicemen are on f*cking Twitter?!??!?!!!!!

Good News: Taliban Expect Windfall of Convoy Protection Money to Finance Afghan Jihad

That's not to mention the legitimate charge that Pakistan requires from each truck, some of which will go to their intelligence arm the ISI who will in turn use it to finance Jihad.

Stripes.com:

KANDAHAR, Afghanistan (AP) -- As the United States trumpeted its success in persuading Pakistan to end its seven-month blockade of supplies for NATO troops in Afghanistan, another group privately cheered its good fortune: the Taliban.

Pakistan reopened the supply route in early July after the U.S. apologized for the deaths of the soldiers.

"Stopping these supplies caused us real trouble," a Taliban commander who leads about 60 insurgents in eastern Ghazni province told The Associated Press in an interview. "Earnings dropped down pretty badly. Therefore the rebellion was not as strong as we had planned."

A second Taliban commander who controls several dozen fighters in southern Kandahar province said the money from security companies was a key source of financing for the insurgency, which uses it to pay fighters and buy weapons, ammunition and other supplies.

"We are able to make money in bundles," the commander told the AP by telephone. "Therefore, the NATO supply is very important for us."

Like I said, I'd truck the whole damned army up through Russia and Eastern Europe to whatever ports are available despite the cost. Because whatever that cost is it can't be more than the cost of trusting the Pakistanis.

First They Came For Politically Incorrect Bloggers

When anti-Jihad bloggers we're being flagged off Facebook no one said anything.

When right leaning bloggers were being selectively purged from ad services, no one said a word.

When bloggers who use pseudonyms (especially on the right) were being banned and purged from Facebook, Google Plus and Google's ad service, Nope nada not a word. Its good because people who use pseudonyms might "misbehave" they said.

So now I'm supposed to give a rat's ass that a gasp, real journalist named Guy Adams, has been banned from Twitter by powerful interests at NBC over criticism of the Olympics?

What a whiny bitch! Put on your digital big girl panties like the rest of us and deal with it.

Update: Adams' suspension has been lifted.

Lulz: Wife of Retarded Would-be Terrorist Charged

Richard-Dart-aka-salahuddin-al-britani.jpg
Richard Dart, aka Salahuddin al-Britani

In the world of online jihad he was known as "Salahuddin Al Britani", but to the government that sent him welfare checks he was Richard Dart. Dart and a number of his friends were recently arrested as they tried to head to Pakistan for jihadi training. Dart's wife, Ayan Hadi, is charged with covering up her husband's crime.

Notice that she's allowed to wear a full niqab to the hearing, with only her eyes showing. You'd think as a matter of safety, of public record, and of procedural due process that she'd be forced to show her face.

Oh, and she's pregnant. Which has all of the terror supporters on the intertubez crying foul. Apparently the kuffar are supposed to let terrorist supporters go when they get themselves knocked up:

Ayan Hadi, 30, who is pregnant, is due to appear before magistrates in September accused of withholding information about the preparation of acts of terrorism, the Old Bailey heard.

Her husband, Richard Dart, has been charged with travelling to Asia for terrorism training....

Wearing full-length Islamic dress, including a veil that showed only her eyes, she appeared via video-link from Holloway prison.

Here's a video of Dart. Notice that it's on the YouTube page of Muslims Against Crusades, another among a long list of groups once run by Anjem Choudary which are now banned in the UK.

The BBC also featured Dart in a video called "My Brother the Islamist" in which he calls himself a "jihadist" and admits supporting al Qaeda. The video also records Dart's conversion to Islam, the shahada administered by none other than .... Anjem Choudary.

Which means that Dart was on everyone's radar and he knew it. So, in addition to being a would-be terrorist, he's also a retard. Which is kind of redundant, I know.

So, where's Choudary today? Not in jail. In fact, he posted a video to his YouTube page yesterday.

Since the number of close associates of Anjem Choudary presently in jail must be well over two dozen now, then it seems increasingly likely that the Brits are either intentionally not prosecuting him because he's a magnet to terrorists or that he's worked out a deal with the government in which he turns over the really serious terrorists to them.

I'm increasingly inclined to believe the latter. Which, by Choudary's own belief system, makes him a traitor.

I have no doubt, this man voted for Barack Hussein Obama.

JULY 31--Suspicious that his live-in girlfriend was planning an affair, a Tennessee man confronted the woman after spotting a photo of an unknown guy on her Facebook page, according to a police report.

Lowell Turpin, 40, “angrily demanded to know who the male was,” reported Anderson County Sheriff’s Department investigators.

Crystal Gray, 38, “replied that it was a picture of Mitt Romney.”

He went on to smash the computer in an attempt to get at the man living on his girlfriend's Facebook page.

FTO Jamaat-ud-Dawa Raising Finds via Twitter and Facebook

International Herald Tribune:

Taking advantage of the global outreach of social media networks like Facebook and Twitter, the controversial charity Jamaatud Dawa (JuD) sent out an appeal on its official Twitter account asking people to donate Zakat and Fitrah for the Holy month of Ramazan.

India has blamed JuD chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed for masterminding the 2008 terror attacks in Mumbai. Taking cue from New Delhi, the United States also announced bounty for information leading to the prosecution and conviction of Hafiz Saeed.

Through its Twitter account, the JuD appealed to its 2,186 followers for donations for itself and for its welfare arm, the Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation Pakistan (FIFP).
The FIFP appeal was also made from the Twitter account of JuD, which has been under sanctions from the United Nations Security Council.

Our friend's Pakistan who are required by treaty as a UN member to enforce the sanctions against JuD have decided not to.
The JuD says that since it is not banned in Pakistan, it can collect funds.

“Everyone knows that when the UNSC slapped sanctions on Jamaatud Dawa, we moved the Lahore High Court against it – which ruled in our favour,” said Khalid Waleed, chief coordinator of JuD’s political cell, which is headed by Abdur Rehman Makki.

Clearly since both Facebook and Twitter are American companies the Obama administration could order Facebook and Twitter to suspend JuD. As well they should, because we all know that at least a portion of these funds will go to finance Jihad against our forces in Afghanistan, not to mention terrorism directed at our much more trustworthy ally India.

Myself I find it hard to blame the backstabbing Pakistanis much when our own government does not enforce the sanctions that are on the books now.

Of course the leftist douchebags running these companies could do the right thing and stop hosting terrorists as well, but why would they when there is no price to pay?

JuD's website www.jamatdawa.org is hosted by another member nation Singapore.

Italian Olympic Athletes Honor Israeli Munich Victims

I only wish other teams had joined them. Perhaps it was a spontaneous gesture and the other teams were unaware. But maybe this noble act will encourage other teams to pay respects in their own way.

From Arutz Sheva 7:

The Italian Olympic team at the London Olympic Games made a noble gesture Sunday and stood in silence outside the quarters of the Israeli team, in memory of the 11 athletes slain in the Munich Olympics 40 years ago, Voice of Israel radio reported Sunday.

About 30 Italians were present at the ceremony, including Italy's Minister of Sport, the heads of the Italian Olympic Committee and athletes. Israeli Olympic Committee head Tzvi Varshaviak and Olympic delegation leader Efraim Zinger also took part.

Others have taken a moment to remember the victims as well:

According to an unverified report on the internet, the pilot and crew of a British airliner headed for Israel Thursday did what the Olympics Committee refused to do, and observed a moment of silence in memory of the Israel athletes murdered in Munich in 1972.

The "USA Stands with Israel" Facebook page, with over 10,000 subscribers, reported that the heartwarming gesture was made by a pilot for EasyJet, on a flight headed from the firm's home base of Luton, England, to Tel Aviv.

"The pilot came on the intercom and informed the passengers that the crew will be observing a minute of silence as they fly over Munich and he invited the passengers to join them in remembering the Israeli sportsmen who were murdered there at the Olympic Games 40 years ago," according to the report.

Sharia Tourism

No, it's not a tour of famous stoning pits or plans to watch amputations and executions. Sharia tourism is the latest attempt to boost travel to Egypt. Why visit the pagan Pyramids when you can spend an afternoon on a Sea-Doo with assurances your wife won't enjoy it as much as you and your son do?

China Going to the Moon

Mainly to rub in that we can't....

China will next year attempt to land an exploratory craft on the moon for the first time, state media reported, in the latest project in its ambitious space programme.

If successful, the landing would be China's first on the lunar surface and mark a new milestone in its space development. It is part of a project to orbit, land on and return from the moon, Xinhua said.

China said in its last white paper on space it was working towards landing a man on the moon, although it has not given a time frame.

White House: Fake But Accurate Churchill Bust Story
UDATE: NYT Doesn't Fact Check White House

churchill_bust_whitehouse.JPG
Obi Wan Kenobe Visits the White House: This is not the Churchill bust you're looking for.

Krauthammer is entirely too civil here. He gives White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer far too much leeway -- saying over and over again that it was a "mistake" and that Pfeiffer should just admit it and move on -- in the lie he orchestrated about the Winston Churchill bust that was removed by Obama in the Oval Office.

Come on, a "mistake"? This was no mistake. This was an intentional lie. It's the worse kind of lie: the lie crafted to make the other guy look like a liar.

Go check out the carefully worded post at the White House's official website, and the tepid update that clarifies the earlier lie.

Look at the wording very carefully. It seems apparent that Pfeiffer knows that Obama's critics are talking about a different bust of Churchill, yet he "fact checks" this by talking about the one bust that remains.

There are two busts. One of them removed from the Oval Office. The one Obama's critics are talking about. And Pfeiffer claims that the critics are lying because there is a second bust of Churchill in a different wing of the White House that hasn't been sent back to the Brits.

Then he posts a picture of that second bust.

But read the entire post, nowhere in it does he mention the first bust in his response. He's intentionally banking on readers not knowing that there is a second bust.

In lawyer speak he's not lying, he's simply answering a question by only volunteering certain information.

Bust A was removed. See, Obama's critics are liars because Bust B is still in the White House!

In church I was always taught that there were sins of commission and sins of omission. Those wrongs we do by acting, and those wrongs we do by not acting.

Lies work that way too. Check out the wording on the White House blog:

Now, normally we wouldn’t address a rumor that’s so patently false, but just this morning the Washington Post’s Charles Krauthammer repeated this ridiculous claim in his column. He said President Obama “started his Presidency by returning to the British Embassy the< bust of Winston Churchill that had graced the Oval Office.”

This is 100% false. The bust still in the White House. In the Residence. Outside the Treaty Room.

See how this works? He responds to Krauthammer's criticism by giving unrelated information, but information so obscure that he believed no one would be able to call him on it. A lie of omission.

The worst part here is that after being caught in the lie, instead of apologizing for it, the White House doubles down with Dan Rather "fake but accurate" defense in an update:

The original Churchill bust remained on display in the residence. The idea put forward by Charles Krauthammer and others that President Obama returned the Churchill bust or refused to display the bust because of antipathy towards the British is completely false and an urban legend that continues to circulate to this day.
Uhhhhhh, what?

So, yes the story we circulated that the Oval Office Churchill bust was never removed was a fabrication .... but since the greater narrative -- that Obama didn't remove the bust out of malice for the Brits or for the Conservative Prime Minister -- is true, then the carefully crafted intentional lie is okay?

That's how I read it. And I don't think I'm being unfair here.

The White House lied intentionally to make Krauthammer -- and, by extension Mitt Romney -- look like a liar. And their defense is that the greater narrative defines TRUTH, not the fabricated facts.

Sound familiar?

Remember: Lies in defense of TRUTH are no lies.

UPDATE
: It's telling, isn't it? That the NY Times doesn't seem to think fact checking the White House is worth any time or effort. Because, you know, they can be trusted.

Deadbeat Obama2012 Wants Taxpayers to Pay for Campaign Security

LA Times:

Newport Beach City Manager Dave Kiff billed the campaigns of President Obama and presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney for police security at their separate fundraisers this year in the city.

Now that the Romney campaign paid its bill, the city is left in the awkward position of trying to collect from Obama.

... Kiff says the Police Department did raise the issue with the Secret Service before the president's visit.

"At that time, our staff was told that the Secret Service would not reimburse the city," Kiff wrote in an email, "and that we should check with the president's campaign or the DNC."

The Romney campaign paid its bill last week, about a month after the city sent its invoice. The Obama bill, on the other hand, was sent in May and has not been paid.

City spokeswoman Tara Finnigan said the city's billing system would be sending past-due notices.

About three weeks ago, the Democratic National Committee contacted the city and told officials to deal with the Secret Service.

And Joe Biden for one is not happy about it,,
Via Obama2012: And the only way someone like Mitt Romney -- who's asking Americans to put him in charge of their taxes while refusing to come clean about his own, who wants to repeal Obamacare, end Medicare as we know it and give more tax breaks to billionaires who don't need them -- defeats someone like Barack Obama, is if the other side spends us into oblivion.
So Joe, do you mean that Romney is making you look bad by paying his bills? Instead of, you know, blowing them off and laying them on the taxpayers? I mean to hear you talk I thought you were all for policemen getting paid? No?

Pakistani Muslim Sued For Running Jews Out of Santa Monica Hotel

Jewish Press:

Two years ago Ryan and other twenty- and thirty-something Jews planned to raise money to send children of fallen IDF soldiers to camp with a charity event at the Hotel Shangri-La in Santa Monica, California.

On the morning of July 11, 2010, Ryan and others arrived at the hotel and began setting up Friends of the IDF banners, literature and piles of shirts for the event guests.

But the event was aborted after, according to one employee’s sworn testimony, the hotel’s owner told staff members, “Get the [expletive deleted] Jews out of my pool.” Then the hotel security and other employees began removing the materials and ordering the guests to leave.

Turn out the hotel is actually run by the man's daughter..
Tehmina (Tamie) Adaya, a Pakistani-American Muslim, is the owner of the Shangri-La. Her father, Ahmad Adaya, was a founding partner of the California real estate company IDS Real Estate Group. He also was a founder and benefactor of the New Horizon School for Muslim religious education in Southern California.

The father bought the Shangri-La Hotel in the 1980‘s and the daughter took it over in 2004,

Tehmina Adaya also runs a blog here. Where she talks about how much she loves Vidal Sassoon, hate to break it you Tehmina, Sassoon was also, you know, a Jew.

Shumukh Forum Gripped by Spyware Paranoia

Wired:

A prominent poster on the elite password-protected jihadi web site Shumukh has told fellow forum members his account on the site has been hacked to send spyware to fellow forum participants.

The user, who goes by the handle “Yaman Mukhadab,” posted on August 28 that “it seems that someone is using my account and is somehow sending messages with my name to the members,” according to Flashpoint Partners, which translated the discussion for Danger Room. Shumukh uses software from vBulletin, which allows members to send private messages to each other.

Mukhadab’s handiwork has attracted attention beyond the forum. He was one of the contributors to the site’s lame recent attempt at creating a fantasy target wishlist comprised of American security industry leaders, defense officials and other public figures.

He claims to have become aware of the hack after seeing “a number of messages from the brothers in private [on the forum account] replying to what they thought was a message from me.” He wrote that “the dangerous thing in the matter is that they say that I had sent them a message including a link for download, which they downloaded.”

Spencer Ackerman was unavailable for comment on this outrageous violation of Jihadi Privacy.

Jawa Report denies any involvement although we admit we find it very entertaining.

Mali Unwed Couple Stoned To Death

Ah, Taliban style Shariah law strikes again

The man and woman were buried up to their necks, then pelted with stones until they died.

The northern half of Mali has been overrun by rebels - Tuareg and Islamist - following a coup in Mali's capital.

Aguelhok in the region of Kidal was one of the first to be captured by Tuareg separatist rebels.

The Islamists in Aguelhok stoned the couple to death in front of about 200 people, officials said.

"I was there. The Islamists took the unmarried couple to the centre of Aguelhok. The couple was placed in two holes and the Islamists stoned them to death," a local government official told the AFP news agency.

"The woman fainted after the first few blows," he said, adding that the man had shouted out once and then fallen silent.

"Romney: The Wimp Factor" Did What Obama Has Failed To Do

romney_newsweek_wimp.jpg

Romney took it to the Palestinian Authority and said what needed to be said, they suck.

The Belfast Telegraph decided to carry the water for the PA as well as Obama:

Romney gaffes continue in Israel

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has outraged Palestinian leaders after declaring that Israeli culture allowed it to be more economically successful.

"As you come here and you see the GDP per capita, for instance, in Israel which is about 21,000 dollars, and compare that with the GDP per capita just across the areas managed by the Palestinian Authority, which is more like 10,000 dollars per capita, you notice such a dramatically stark difference in economic vitality," he said in Jerusalem.

The reaction of Palestinian leaders was swift and pointed[...]

It is a racist statement and this man doesn't realise that the Palestinian economy cannot reach its potential because there is an Israeli occupation," said Saeb Erekat, a senior aide to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.[More...]

PA must be worried America's money sieve to them may dry up, as it should, if Romney is elected. Abbas has refused to recognize Israel and yet, against Congress, Obama has upped payments of our hard earned tax dollars to them.

In ”Leading From Behind: The Reluctant President and the Advisors Who Decide for Him,“ Richard Miniter writes that Obama canceled the “kill” mission in January 2011, again in February, and a third time in March. Obama’s close adviser Valerie Jarrett persuaded him to hold off each time...

UN Arms Treaty Fails!

There was great gnashing of teeth among the "world powers" who sought to usurp our second amendment by way of treaty.

Rianovosti:

The UN Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty has failed to approve the world’s first binding document on trade in conventional arms. Its organizers blame the United States and Russia. Washington demanded that the new treaty must not limit Americans’ right to bear arms, while Moscow was displeased with the ban on selling arms to troubled regimes.

The four-week conference began in New York in early July. Its organizers eventually said the signing would have to be postponed for an indefinite period. Argentine Ambassador Roberto Garcia Moritan, who chaired the conference, said they knew that “this was going to be difficult to achieve” but still hoped for a treaty.

This is great news. Although look for a second and thrid attempt to be undertaken when its felt if can slip without your noticing.

It speaks to the importance of this year's elections in the Senate. A body which will have to approve this by a 2/3 majority if it is ever passed. Although DICK Durbin told me not to worry about it because it can not be enforced until the senate acts. Which is not entirely true. The US would be expected to act in good faith once agreeing to the treaty until the senate voted.

One can't imagine the Obama administration not signing this agreement if there has not been the public outcry and activism. I think Dick Morris, not your average right wing extremist, deserves a lot of credit for getting the word out and helping us all put pressure on the Obama administration. As close as the election is Obama knew it was a loser if he'd signed it.

Lets make sure it never comes up again, if Obama were to win reelection and never have to answer to the public for singing this treaty. He'd do it in a heartbeat.

Hat Tip: Ken.

How is it in the 21st Century slavery still exists? Instead of praising and applauding Saudi Arabia for this small concession, we should be shaming them for their society's abuse of women and human rights. Next thing you know, we'll be cheering when some Islamic country allows its slaves to walk behind its women.

NBC Edits Out Tribute To Victims Of Islamic Terrorism

If you are watching the Olympics in the States, there's a part of the opening ceremony NBC chose to leave out. While the Olympic Committee opted not to have a moment of silence for the Israeli athletes murdered in 1972, they did have a tribute for the victims of the 7/7 Islamic terrorist attacks.

The tribute included the Christian hymn, "Abide With Me" performed by Scottish singer Emeli Sandé. NBC opted not to air it.

From Deadspin via Pat Dollard:

The major transitional element of today’s London Olympics opening ceremony was a downtempo performance of adoptive sporting anthem “Abide With Me” by Scottish singer Emeli Sandé. The song and accompanying dance were a tribute to the victims of the 7/7 terror attacks in London that claimed 52 victims days after the 2012 Summer Olympic hosts were named. (It’s also been suggested the performance was a memorial to the war dead.)

Regardless, it was a rather significant and emotional moment in the opening ceremony, coming just before the parade of nations—and it wasn’t aired in the United States. Instead, viewers were treated to a lengthy and meaningless Ryan Seacrest interview of Michael Phelps.

Here's the tribute NBC didn't want you to see:

Update by SH: Olympics Choreographer Slams NBC For Cutting Tribute: ‘Is It Not Commercial Enough?’

The song is very beautiful. I've included another recording of better sound quality below the fold, along with the lyrics.

Update by Howie: This is really outrageous. I blogged this event back in the day when I'd just begin blogging.

Original Jawa coverage here,here,here and here.

Never forget!


Abide with me; fast falls the eventide;
The darkness deepens; Lord with me abide.
When other helpers fail and comforts flee,
Help of the helpless, O abide with me.

Swift to its close ebbs out life's little day;
Earth's joys grow dim; its glories pass away;
Change and decay in all around I see;
O Thou who changest not, abide with me.

I need Thy presence every passing hour.
What but Thy grace can foil the tempter's power?
Who, like Thyself, my guide and stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine, Lord, abide with me.

I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless;
Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness.
Where is death's sting? Where, grave, thy victory?
I triumph still, if Thou abide with me.

Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes;
Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies.
Heaven's morning breaks, and earth's vain shadows flee;
In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me.

Guns and Chick-fil-A a Matter of Trust

Peter Ingemi hit the nail on the head with this:

I have heard a lot of people on the left self righteously complain that conservatives are unwilling to agree to “common sense gun control” that we are unreasonable fanatics who would oppose restrictions on the ownership of Sherman Tanks.

Most of all; we are totally wrong to believe that the left is after our guns just because of the proposed assault weapon ban.

Why would we have such a belief, how can the folks on the right even think we on the left are after their guns, all their guns?

The answer: Chick-Fil-A

Twenty years ago there was nobody NOBODY nationally who was pushing the idea of gay marriage. If Bill Clinton had come out for Gay Marriage in 1992 he would have lost 49 states.

Then came the VT Supreme Court ruling requiring civil partnerships.

Egypt: Muslims Set Fire To Copts Houses Over Burned Hole in Shirt

Who knew ironing shirts for a living could possibly get one killed

Police imposed tight security measures in the village of Dahshur, Badrasheen, on Saturday in after sectarian clashes between Muslims and Copts the day before.

The clashes started on Friday when a Christian makwagi, a person who irons clothes for a living, burned a shirt owned by a Muslim customer while ironing it.

Muslims later set fire to Christian homes in the village, which is on the southern outskirts of Cairo, and at least one person was wounded as Muslims and Coptic Christians traded fire bombs.

Utah: Gun carrying man ends stabbing spree at Salt Lake grocery store

Awesome:

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - A citizen with a gun stopped a knife wielding man as he began stabbing people Thursday evening at the downtown Salt Lake City Smith's store[...]

Espinoza says, the knife wielding man seriously injured two people. "There is blood all over. One got stabbed in the stomach and got stabbed in the head and held his hands and got stabbed all over the arms."

Then, before the suspect could find another victim - a citizen with a gun stopped the madness. "A guy pulled gun on him and told him to drop his weapon or he would shoot him. So, he dropped his weapon and the people from Smith's grabbed him."

Apparently the attacker kept saying "you killed my people" during the stabbing.

Obama: Thanks to Roads, Not Hard Work and Second Mortgage on My House, My Wife's Business Is Succeeding.

My wife is about to move her business out of the house and into a stand alone property that we’re buying. While I appreciate all of you for paying your taxes so that we can share the road with you, we also paid those same taxes. It wasn’t the road that built my wife’s business. It was her hard work.

And the second mortgage we took out on our house in order to make the dream come true. Whether her business fails or succeeds the roads will still be there. If it fails, we lose our house. That’s called risk. We’re the ones taking it. But if it succeeds? Then we profit from it. That’s called reward.

We’re the ones taking the risk. We’re the ones that will reap the reward.

It’s a fundamental American value and something the current occupant of the White House doesn’t understand.

Oh, and she's already hired one employee and is about to hire two more. She's a job creator.

But guess what? She's not hiring the employees because she wants to create jobs. She's hiring people because we want to make more money, and the employees are a means to that ends.

Businesses don't get started or expand to create jobs. If you think that, you're an idiot.

Businesses get started to make money. If that makes you unhappy, grow up.

What got me thinking about this are the fact that I just signed the refinance papers and these two excellent Romney videos I've posted up at Blogs4Mitt. If you haven't seen them, take the two minutes and watch them both. If you have, be sure to send them to any and all of your Obama supporting friends or any independents or undecideds.

Go on. Do it now!

This election is critical.

And if your Obama friends reply with, "But Mitt Romney outsourced jobs to China!". Tell them to grow up. On net, it's not true. But even if it was so what? Bain Capital was started to make money, not to create jobs. That's the way things work in the real world.

Hijab Issue at the London Olympics

We all know how this will end[h/t @ShirazMaher]

LONDON — Talks were under way Friday to allow a woman judo athlete to compete for Saudi Arabia at the Olympics after the sport’s governing federation said she would not be allowed to wear a headscarf.

Saudi Arabia, which sent its first two female Olympians to the London Games, had only agreed to let women participate if they adhered to the kingdom’s conservative Islamic traditions, including wearing a headscarf.

But on Thursday, the International Judo Federation said the Saudi fighter, Wojdan Ali Seraj Abdulrahim Shahrkhani, would not be allowed to wear a headscarf because it was against principles of judo and raised safety concerns. She may also be the first judoka to fight at the Olympics who does not hold a black belt in judo, a Japanese martial art.

[Continue reading]

She will most likely be allowed to wear it, be strangled during the competition and her family will sue the IOC.

At least that's what I think will happen.

Anti-Semitic dhimmis at the IOC have caved to Lebanon's Judo team and erected a barrier between them and the Israeli Judo team

After an outcry from Muslim nations, the anti-Semitic dhimmis at the IOC refused to do, during opening ceremonies, a "moment of silence" in memory of the Israeli athletes who were murdered by Pali terrorists at the 1972 Munich Olympics

Yes, she will be allowed to wear her "head covering"...

DHS Offers Tips To Survive A Shooting

The Department of Homeland Security offers some tips that might help you survive a shooting rampage:

Let me see if I can narrow the video down for you:

1. Unlike home-grown terrorists who plant bombs, crazed shooters won't be white guys in hoodies. They'll be white guys with military crew cuts.

2. Buildings that prohibit legally concealed handguns are prime targets of crazed shooters. They figure, if they're going to kill a bunch of people anyway, why not break a few additional laws. The bastard probably also tore the labels off his mattress before he left home.

3. RUN AWAY! Try and grab a few slower people to take with you. They'll make a great distraction if you run into the shooter. (This also works well during Zombie attacks.)

4. HIDE! Turn off phones. Because, while a huge Xerox copier blocking the door won't reveal your hiding place to the shooter, the Obama speech snippet you use as a ring tone might.

5. KILL the one woman who screams "OH MY GOD!" as soon as you whisper "Shhh! There's a lunatic shooter in the building!"

6. FIGHT! The shooter will most likely leave you alone if you pelt him with office supplies. Imagine how many lives could have been saved had the victims in Colorado just thrown their popcorn at the attacker. Plus, everyone knows an object thrown goes much faster and is more accurate than a bullet fired from a rifle.

7. The fact you survive without a weapon proves beyond all doubt GUN CONTROL works! If you don't survive, well, that just means we need more gun control.

Democrat Senators Try to Slip Gun Control Into Rider on Cyber Security Bill

Er, shocking.

The Hill:

Democratic senators have offered an amendment to the cybersecurity bill that would limit the purchase of high capacity gun magazines for some consumers.

Shortly after the Cybersecurity Act gained Senate approval to proceed to filing proposed amendments and a vote next week, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), a sponsor of the gun control amendment, came to the floor to defend the idea of implementing some “reasonable” gun control measures.

The amendment was sponsored by Democratic Sens. Frank Lautenberg (N.J.), Barbara Boxer (Calif.), Jack Reed (R.I.), Bob Menendez (N.J.), Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), Schumer and Dianne Feinstein (Calif.). S.A. 2575 would make it illegal to transfer or possess large capacity feeding devices such as gun magazines, belts, feed stripes and drums of more than 10 rounds of ammunition with the exception of .22 caliber rim fire ammunition.

Among the Female Fighters in Kurdistan

I had high hopes for this 3 part Vice series on female fighters in Kurdistan. It turns out, I wasn't let down. It was entertaining. But not for the reason I expected.

Go watch the video. It's almost comedy. Not so much the female soldiers, as the pencil necked emo guy they sent to do the story.

Imagine a guy who is the spitting image of Rahel Maddow showing up to interview a bunch of left wing guerrillas wearing brightly colored Izod polos and jeans rolled up just enough to reveal designer boots. The tone of the video though doesn't seem to indicate that the narrator is really the brunt of the joke.

I guess this guy seems pretty normal in New York. In Kurdistan, not so much.

So, think of this as kind of a reverse Crocodile Dundee. Which I think is the plot of Crocodile Dundee II. Only instead of the Australian outback, you get the mountains of Kurdistan. And instead of that hot blonde chick, a gay guy that looks like Rachel Maddow.

Yeah, I know the description isn't really the video's selling point. But there's comedic value. And along the way you might learn a thing or two about the various armed Kurdish groups in Northern Iraq.

I'll also use this as a reminder that Kurdistan ought to be an independent sovereign country. These people love us, and I think they would be a much better partner in the region than the current Iraq regime. Certainly more so than the Turks.

North Korean athletes in seclusion after flag flap

ooops sk flag.jpg

Ooopsy

GLASGOW, Scotland – The flag flap that overshadowed the start of women's soccer at the London Olympics might be consigned to a list of human errors by organizers, but it could hardly have been more insulting to North Koreans.

The team from the reclusive communist country was back in seclusion at a hotel in Glasgow on Thursday after accepting profuse apologies from Olympic organizers, who mistakenly displayed the South Korean flag when introducing North Korean players before a game Wednesday night.

The North Koreans refused to take the field and considered withdrawing from the tournament in protest, before finally agreeing to play Colombia. The game started more than an hour late, and the North Koreans won 2-0.

"Winning the game can't compensate for the mistake," North Korea coach Sin Ui Gun said through an interpreter after the game, still angry about such a major gaffe on the first day of Olympic competition. "I just want to stress once again that our players' images and names can't be shown alongside the South Korea flag."[More...]

Readings from the Book of Barack

1 In the beginning Govt created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the economy was formless and void, darkness was over the surface of the ATMs, and the Spirit of Govt was hovering over the land.

3 And Govt said, “Let there be spending,” and there was spending. 4 Govt saw that the spending was good, and that it separated the light from the darkness. 5 Govt called the spending Investments, and this he did in the first day.

6 Then Govt said, “Let there be roads and bridges across the waters, and let dams divide the waters from the waters.” 7 Thus Govt made the infrastructure and the patronage jobs for eternity under the firmament from the Potomac which was above the firmament; and it was so. 8 And Govt called the firmament Washington.

‘Auschwitz-Like Conditions’: U.S. General Accused of Massive Afghan Cover-Up to Protect Obama During Election Year

OMG:

The Blaze

(The Blaze/AP) — US military officers accused one of the highest-ranking US commanders in Afghanistan, Lieutenant General William Caldwell, of trying to cover up a horrifying scandal at a taxpayer-funded hospital in Kabul to limit bad news in an election year, the AFP reports.

Colonel Mark Fassl, who testified Tuesday, said he was shocked when Lt. Gen. William Caldwell cited the then-upcoming 2010 congressional elections as the reason not to investigate the hospital.

The general reportedly said at the time: “How could we … make this request with elections coming? He calls me Bill.”

Col. Fassl said he believed the “he” in that statement was a reference to President Obama.

Two retired colonels who worked with the training command also told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee that Caldwell did not want an investigation of the Dawood National Military Hospital, and one described the building as having “Auschwitz-like conditions.”

U.S. taxpayers spent more than $150 million on the hospital in just 18 months, according to CNN

Shocking News! al-Qaeda Active in Syria

The Age:

THE image has become a staple of the Syrian revolution, a video of masked men calling themselves the Free Syrian Army and with AK-47s. But there was one unsettling difference.

In the background are two flags of al-Qaeda. ''We are now forming suicide cells to make jihad in the name of God,'' said a speaker using the classical Arabic favoured by al-Qaeda.

alnusramay2012.JPG
Similar video here, note the AQ flag is the lesser known text only version

Posted on YouTube, it is one more piece of evidence that al-Qaeda and other Islamic extremists are doing their best to hijack the Syrian revolution.

US intelligence officials are publicly concerned and Iraqi officials openly alarmed.

Of course al-Qaeda is involved. However since the deaths of UBL and al-Libi al-Qaeda is not quite what we think of as al-Qaeda in the 9/11 sense. The Pakistani core is much less relevant. The deaths of the core leaders have in effect given the green light for inspired lower level Jihadis who now know that there is no hope in waiting for al-Qaeda's core leadership to act.

al-Qaeda now is more of a Salafi state of mind rather than the defined group of Islamic mobsters that it once was. That state of mind gaining in popularity with the rise Arab spring conflicts and in spite of the deaths of the core leadership. The truth is that al-Qaeda and other Salafi Jihadi groups will be active in any conflict in the Middle East. There is no way around it.

So one might say that we've won the battles of Iraq and Afghanistan on the ground and al-Qaeda has lost. Many times al-Qaeda fighters lost favor in the areas they controlled by their own brutal hand more than by the force of our arms. But if the standard by which you measure al-Qaeda's success are its inspiration of Salafist Jihadi movements. Well, the results are much less clear.

The hard core Jiahdis will seek to impose their will on the population. Of course they will seek to insert themselves into any place where anarchy allows them to gain power by force. I'm even willing to tolerate a few Jihiadis helping Muslims fight to be free, given that its their business and its up to those in those nations to determine their future. Its given that the end result will be somewhat less radical than al-Qaeda. Also, so long as al-Qaeda is engaged there they are less likely to attack us in the west except in cases of extreme opportunity. I mean why would they need to attack us at home? We're not particularly in their way at the moment.

Afterward will come the real danger. When peace returns the dedicated Jihadi will once again turn his attention to Israel and its allies in the west. And with these new "Democracies" made up of 60 percent Islamists and 20 percent radical Jiahdis I'm not feeling particularly optimistic about it.

Sandcrawler PSA: Discussion of Anglo-Saxon Heritage Offensive

The Romney campaign has denied any discussion of Romney's pasty white English heritage while in England.

I'm really not sure why. Discussion of any other heritage is not offensive. I never really got why the Kenyan official was canned for talking about Obama's Kenyan heritage? Various communities talk about their heritage all the time and its not offensive.

But as the nation's first black president, Obama's connection to the African-American community remains special. Obama has an 87 percent ..
So what's offensive about that? I mean Obama and a lot of people in America have a shared African heritage, culture and traditions that are distinct from others. Another word for distinct... special.

Distinct from say American Indian culture, of Italian, Spanish, Arab, Irish, Polynesian, Korean, Chinese culture. The list goes on and on. And its all generally considered positive, no?

But Anglo-Saxon culture and heritage, now that's effing offensive doubleclutch. I can't explain it, it just is. So don't talk about it. Unless you're Irish, the Irish are exempt because they are alcohol challenged.

Military Judge Holds Nidal Hasan In Contempt: Shave Or Be Shaved

FORT HOOD, Texas - In an Article 39A hearing July 25 in the case of U.S. vs. Maj. Nidal Hasan, the Military Judge Col. Gregory Gross began the morning with a contempt hearing for Hasan's failure to comply with Army grooming standards and appear in court clean shaven.

Gross found the accused in contempt and fined him $1,000, the maximum amount the court could impose as a fine under the court-martial contempt statute. After conducting the contempt hearing, the accused refused to voluntarily shave and watched the remainder of the hearing outside the courtroom via a close-circuit television feed. The military judge further informed the accused that if he did not voluntarily shave, Gross would likely compel a shaving sometime in the future so the accused could personally attend forthcoming court-martial hearings.

Cornhole Watch: Anthony Hayne of #Occupy Cleveland Pleads Guilty to All Charges

One of five men charged with plotting to bomb an Ohio highway bridge pleaded guilty Wednesday and agreed to testify against his co-defendants.

Anthony Hayne, 35, of Cleveland, pleaded to all three counts against him in U.S. District Court. His attorney, Michael O’Shea, said Hayne hopes to get leniency in return for his testimony.

That's quite ironic given Tony's previous comments about snitches on facebook.

Oh how the mighty have fallen. The charges were as follows. Conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction, attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction and conspiracy to destroy property used in interstate commerce.

The mother of Connor Stevens, one of five Occupy Cleveland members accused of attempting to bomb a Cleveland-area bridge on April 30, called for the death of the FBI informant in the case at a protest this morning. “People are infuriated by sexual predators: put ‘em away, kill ‘em, how dare we have sexual predators! You know what that informant is? A sexual predator, only it’s under the guise of the FBI,” said Gail Stevens, discussing the case with reporters in Akron.

Syrian rebels modified a captured Syrian Army tank to camouflage it. It's amazing what a few tree branches and some cardboard boxes can do.

See if you can spot the tank in the picture below:

I know, it's tough to see under all the camouflage. When you give up, go below the fold where I've circled the tank. Also below the fold, video of the new Stealth tank in action.

Xariif Lives in Southern Cal?

Utah Goat man mystery solved:

They speculated he might have been an extreme wildlife enthusiast who just wanted to get as close as possible to the goats. A few days after the spotting, state wildlife authorities received an anonymous call from an “agitated man” who simply said, “Leave goat man alone. He’s done nothing wrong.”

This week, however, the mystery was solved.

Phil Douglass of the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources said he received a call Monday from a 57-year-old Southern California hunter who explained he was merely trying out his goat suit in preparation for a mountain goat hunt in Canada next year.

Xariif prolly thinks Canuck goats are purdier or something.

Aurora: Holmes Sent Chilling Notebook to Psychiatrist Before Attack

aurora victims.jpg
Slideshow: Family, friends remember these victims of the Aurora massacre

It's unclear how long the package sat in the mailroom.

The source said the package had been in the mailroom since July 12, though another source who confirmed the discovery to FoxNews.com could not say if the package arrived prior to Friday's massacre. It was not clear why it had not been delivered to the psychiatrist. The notebook is now in possession of the FBI, sources told FoxNews.com.
A FoxNews.com exclusive
Police and FBI agents were called to the University of Colorado Anschutz medical campus in Aurora on Monday morning after the psychiatrist, who is also a professor at the school, reported receiving a package believed to be from the suspect. Although that package turned out to be from someone else and harmless, a search of the Campus Services' mailroom turned up another package sent to the psychiatrist with Holmes’ name in the return address, the source told FoxNews.com.

A second law enforcement source said authorities got a warrant from a county judge and took the package away Monday night. When it was opened, its chilling contents were revealed

“Inside the package was a notebook full of details about how he was going to kill people,” the source told FoxNews.com. “There were drawings of what he was going to do in it - drawings and illustrations of the massacre."

Egyptian athletes 'given fake Nike kits' to wear at London Games

Via the Telegraph

It is understood the Egyptian Olympic Committee chose a vendor for its athletes’ training and village wear who supplied counterfeit clothing bearing the Nike brand.

Yomna Khallaf, 20, a member of Egypt’s synchronised swimming team, confirmed on Twitter that the athletes were given fake Nike wear

Here is her tweet:

Further

A spokesman from Nike said: “Nike was recently made aware that the Egyptian Olympic Committee (EOC) chose a vendor for its athletes' training and village wear who is alleged to have supplied counterfeit footwear and apparel bearing the Nike trademarks[...]

"Nike’s authorised distributor in Egypt has sent two official communications to the EOC on this issue and no response has been received.

"On July 20, 2012, Nike also sent a written communication to the EOC requesting the committee to take immediate action. To date, we have not received a response.

Hmmm, with increased security at the 2012 Olympics this incident definitely needs to be looked into thoroughly.

R.I.P. Sherman Hemsley

The 70's was really a breakthrough decade for the modern sitcom. Before that, most sitcoms were very tame and family-oriented. But in the 70's, sitcoms started to tackle controversial issues, such as racism, feminism, homosexuality, poverty, abortion, war, etc - all sorts of subjects that were taboo before.

I lived my childhood during that period when the "All In The Family" spin-offs were the rage. I loved Maude, Three's Company, M*A*S*H, Soap, but my favorite was The Jeffersons. I'm not sure why because I certainly don't fit the obvious target audience demographic.

The character of George Jefferson was so easy to hate. He was abrasive, racist, bigoted, and arrogant. But in the end, he always did the right thing. He had a good heart, he loved his family, and took care of his friends.

R.I.P. Sherman. You're movin' on up.

What do the following attacks all have in common?

  • Dr. Amy Bishop Shooting Spree
  • Discovery Channel Hostage-taker

  • Times Square Bomber
  • Andrew Joseph Stack's IRS Building Plane Attack
  • Fort Hood Shooting

I Guess That's One Way To Go...

In an extraordinary case of jealousy, a Nigerian man - husband of six - was allegedly raped to death by his five spouses as he was paying too much attention to his sixth wife in east-central Benue state.

Uroko Onoja, a wealthy businessman, was having sex with his youngest wife when the other five women attacked him with knives and sticks, demanding that he have sex with all of them at once.

Onoja, who resisted their attack, was overpowered by the women who ordered that the sex march begin with the youngest wife and to continue in that order to the top, Nigeria's Daily reported.

Onoja stopped breathing when the fifth woman was making her way to the bed. (Source)

If he thought 5 were impossible to satisfy, now he has to deal with 72!

Superbad Use For Burkas

Haha, purchasing liquor from a liquor store! The clerks are too afraid to challenge a Muslimah, so they don't even ask for ID!

TORONTO - Three liquor stores recently sold booze to a 14-year-old boy whose identity was hidden because he was wearing a full-length burka and face veil at the time, a Sun News Network exclusive has found.

The teenager, clad in an Islamic female's traditional garb of a burka, headscarf and facial covering, shopped in three different LCBO stores north of Toronto last Wednesday.

The article notes that the Sun News, who organized the stunt, also tried to buy liquor using other facial coverings such as motorcycle helmets and Halloween masks. In those cases, the store clerk asked for ID and demanded the customer reveal his face.

I'm am certain, had these same clerks asked a real Muslimah to remove her facial covering, they would have been accused of discrimination and the government would have charged them with a hate crime.

Damned if they do, damned if they don't. And that's just the position Islamists like to see the kufar.

French Muslims Found Committee For Virtue and Vice

So nice to see young Muslims involved in the community.

Police in the south of France have launched an investigation after a woman claimed she was beaten up by seven men in Viviez for attending a party during Ramadan.

The young woman, originally from Morocco, was driving home from the party on Friday night when two other cars trapped hers, newspaper Midi Libre reports.

The men are reported to have beaten her up before leaving without saying anything.

Apparently she didn't learn after the committee applied Sharia the first time.
On her way to the station*(to report the first beating), the seven men tracked her down again and assaulted her a second a time.

According to the woman, the men issued threats and said: “You are a bad Muslim”, and “you bring shame to Islam because you went to a party on a day of Ramadan.”

Bulgarian PM: Bus Attacker Part of Larger Terror Cell

Bulgaria's PM doesn't go far as to name Hezbollah as behind the attack, but the message seems pretty clear: it was Hezbollah

The suicide bomber who killed six people in Bulgaria last week was part of a sophisticated group of conspirators, Prime Minister Boiko Borisov has said.

He said the group had arrived in Bulgaria a month before the attack....

hose involved used "leased vehicles, they moved in different cities so as not to be seen together, and no two of them can be seen in one place on any security camera".

"There was absolutely no chance of preventing such an act of violence," the prime minister insisted.

"We could have only detected it by chance or if we had been informed by the services that such activities were under way in Bulgaria."

Meanwhile, our morally superior cohorts in the EU have once again declined the chance of labeling Hezbollah a terrorist organization.

Miracle: Crab Looks Like Osama bin Laden (or Anwar al-Awlaki)!

Insert a Yakov Smirnoff type joke here. The punchline goes something like: In Saudi Arabia, crabs get you!

osama_bin_laden_crab.jpg

Yeah, I know, the joke needs some work. But check that out. If that isn't freaky-deaky, I don't know what is.

But maybe this is some sort of cosmic revelation that Western eschatology is wrong, and that reincarnation is real? I don't know. You'd think the ironic cosmos would reincarnate bin Laden's soul into something kosher. That way, the dreaded J-O-O could eat him and he'd end up coming out the south end of a rabbi at the annual meeting of the Pentaverite.

And, on second glance, the crab looks less like Osama bin Laden than it does Anwar al-Awlaki to me.

And given his predilection towards low-end prostitutes, then it was pretty much a given that Awlaki had crabs.

Now crabs have him.

See, I knew I could improve that joke!

What The Press Isn't Saying About Threats Against Huma Abedin

Huma Abedin is the wife of Anthony Wiener of Weinergate infamy.

There's a lot of chatter about a NJ Muslim questioned in threats made against Huma as well as a lot of chatter about her possible connections to members of the anti Semitic Muslim Sisterhood. But very little about the nature of the threats against Huma.

While Anthony Wiener pretty much cold busted himself behaving badly, its good to see they have been able to repair things for the most part. Huma recently gave birth to their first child. Hopefully Mr. Wiener will find in that a reason to grow up.

I digress, on to the matter of the threats against Huma. While I've been unable to locate the threat and the origin and the individual are unknown, listed as generic Muslim from NJ the most popular complaint against Huma from Muslims on Islamic forums is the fact that she is married to a Jew.

Really disappointed, she claims she is a practicing Muslim but is married to a pathetic scum Yehudi..

...she is practising muslim and married a pervert jew????

She is a disgrace... ...has married a scum Yehudi man.

disgusting ... and Now "they are expecting their first child"

There's even a Imam issued Fatwa against her marriage to a Jew instead of a proper Pakistani Muslim.

More examples here.

While I find Michelle Bachmann's opinion that since Huma's parents were close the brotherhood then she is automatically suspect ignorant and far fetched. Even more far fetched is that Bachmann's statement had anything to do with Islamist threats against Huma. That's just the narrative the MSM wants to feed the ignorant for obvious political reasons.

Islamists hated Huma for marrying a Jew before Michelle Bachmann mentioned her and they'll continue to hate Huma for the same reason long after Bachmann's comments are forgotten.

Update: American Thinker:

Huma Abedin's public violation of such an authoritative, mainstream Islamic "edict" -- issued specifically for the guidance of North American Muslims -- would seem to merit investigation by serious journalists seeking a rationale for the threat against her by a Muslim male.
Indeed.

Pakistan Wants Drone Control

Our allies Pakistan.

CNN:

The new chief of Pakistan's spy agency will urge the United States to end drone strikes on Pakistani soil and identify targets that the country's security forces can then attack, a senior intelligence official said.

Lt. Gen. Zahirul Islam will deliver the message during a meeting with the head of the CIA on August 2, said the Pakistani intelligence official, who did not want to be named because he is not authorized to speak to the media.

"You (the U.S.) develop a target and let us hit it," Islam will tell CIA Director David Petraeus, the official said. "It would be ideal if the U.S. provides drone technology to Pakistan."

Dear Mr. Islam, We were born at night, but not last night. We all know what would happen if we did that. The targets would be forewarned by the ISI and by the time any drones arrived there would be no target. Or Pakistan would veto or demonstrate intentional incompetence in hitting said targets. I mean you couldn't even find bin-Laden in your own back yard, and yeah we all believed that was due to your incompetence.

Retarded Quote of the Day by Jan Schakowski

There is so much deceptive about Democrat Jan Schakowski's BS comments on the Aurora Shooting.

But can you just imagine if those who were holding guns legally in that theater stood up...
Jan there was no one legally armed in the theater. While Colorado has a concealed carry law, the theater banned weapons from its premises. Concealed carry in a place of business that bans it is unlawful. So your contention that there were people legally holding weapons in the theater is false.
and started shooting at this shooter and we would have had a real shoot-out at the neighborhood theater..
So the only thing worse than an unarmed group of defenseless people being slaughtered would be a smattering of armed people with the ability to return fire to slow down or even stop the Aurora shooter. My God what if Mr. Holmes would have been killed or something?

So well at least we know who's side Ms. Schakowski's on. The murderer's side.

Xariff Spotted Chasing Herd of Goats

In defense of Xariff, those are some pretty sexy goats:

Utah authorities are working to identify a man spotted dressed in a goat suit among a herd of wild goats in the mountains of northern Utah.

The photographer who snapped blurry photos of the individual, dubbed "goat man," told Fox affiliate KSTU-TV that he spotted the man Sunday as he was descending Ben Lomond peak, about 40 miles north of Salt Lake City.

"He was clumsy, working his way down the cliff trying to catch up with the rest of the herd," photographer Coty Creighton told the station. "With the binoculars, I could clearly see it was a guy dressed up in a homemade goat suit."

Video: It's Pretty Easy for a Terrorist to Get a Fake Pakistani Passport

One official quoted in the story calls it, "An open door to al Qaeda." You really need to watch the video to see how unbelievably easy it is for a terrorist to get a passport in Pakistan.

And to put this into perspective: 150,000 Pakistani rupees is slightly less than $1,600 US pesos.

I don't know if that's just the politician's cut of it, the cost of the fake Olympic visa, or the package deal for the whole scam, but even if that figure represents only 1/3 of the cost then you're only talking a measly $5000 or so for a member of one of Pakistan's numerous jihadi groups to get a free pass to travel the globe.

If I was Ace-of-Spades, I'd say the sh*t just got real. But I'm not and I'm not that witty. Instead I'll just leave it at we're boned. Big time.

The most important post-9/11 security program for keeping bad guys out of the country is the no-fly list. But the basic point of information on that list is the name of the passenger coming into the country. Alter that name on a passport -- and remember, these aren't fake passports, these are real passports with a fake name on them -- and we're uber boned.

This should also remind us that much of the tenuous relationship that exists between the US and our "allies" in Pakistan has to do with the failed state nature of that country. Pakistan is not now nor has ever been a modern nation state in any sense of the term. This starts with the fact that they do not control much of the territory that they claim is under their sovereignty, but stretches right into the fact that their so-called "government" is run by people with as much credibility as Nigerian e-mail scanners.

Think about that. Our national security is tied to Pakistanis not turning a blind eye to people who would do us harm.

Boned.

Possibly the greatest virus ever? Here's an email from an Iranian nuclear scientist:

I am writing you to inform you that our nuclear program has once again been compromised and attacked by a new worm with exploits which have shut down our automation network at Natanz and another facility Fordo near Qom.

According to the email our cyber experts sent to our teams, they believe a hacker tool Metasploit was used. The hackers had access to our VPN. The automation network and Siemens hardware were attacked and shut down. I only know very little about these cyber issues as I am scientist not a computer expert.

There was also some music playing randomly on several of the workstations during the middle of the night with the volume maxed out. I believe it was playing 'Thunderstruck' by AC/DC.

Rep. Kieth Ellison really does have extensive ties to Islamist front groups in America. He may not be an Islamist himself, but the fact that he accepts money from these groups and worse, raises money for them, tells me that he cares more about some odd notion of Islamic unity than he does about the Constitutional principal of the separation of mosque and state.

I believe in the power of prayer. I don't think I know anybody in Aurora, CO, but my prayers are for the families.

I have a theory. Just looking at the douchebag, or should I refer to him as the 'alleged' douchebag, this guy is narcissistic. He grew up playing baseball on teams and leagues that didn't keep score and at season's end everyone got a trophy.

Mr. James Holmes never experienced failure.

So, when he experienced life as an adult, he resorted to behavior motivated by his poorly-taught brain which was nourished in thoughts that he could never fail.

Mommy always comes kisses and ice cream.

Last I heard, 12 dead and 58 wounded.

A torrent of violent attacks ripped through Iraq Monday, killing at least 91 people and wounding 172 in the deadliest day of attacks this year.

Fast and Furious, the Yemen version

Without much fanfare or explanation, the US State Department revised its defense export policy on Yemen and will now consider applications for licenses to export lethal defense articles to Yemen.

The July 3, 2012 Federal Register notice updates the US International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and lifts the “presumption of denial” that had been in place since 1992.

In an earlier opening to US-based military contractors and suppliers, the ITAR was revised in August 2011 to allow the export of non-lethal defense articles and services to Yemen.

In the latest ITAR update, the State Department asserted that lifting the arms embargo would enhance US national security and that, “Yemen has taken important steps to stabilize the country, including holding successful presidential elections in February 2012.”

Post revolution Yemen

The 33-year dictatorship of Field Marshall Ali Abdullah Saleh came to an end following a year of nationwide, massive street demonstrations demanding complete regime change. Hundreds of unarmed citizens were killed and over ten thousand wounded as Yemen’s armed forces, headed by Saleh’s relatives, tried to shoot, bomb and burn the protesters into submission.

Saleh and his regime, notorious for brutality and grand corruption, received immunity under a US and Saudi sponsored deal in exchange for Saleh’s resignation. Despite ample evidence of war crimes and financial malfeasance prior to and during the Yemeni revolution, Saleh was neither exiled nor sanctioned. There has been no accounting for the billions stolen from the Yemeni treasury. The US maintains that Saleh is an esteemed leader, welcomed on the political scene.

With 10 million registered voters in Yemen, 6.6 million voted in February’s single candidate election for Saleh’s vice president, Abdu Mansour Hadi. As president, Hadi has achieved significant gains against al Qaeda following decades of Saleh’s appeasement and manipulation of the fanatical group.

However Saleh loyalists continue to thwart progress in Yemen administratively and through covert acts like bombing oil pipelines and a new round of al Qaeda "jailbreaks. Saleh’s paid pens launched a smear campaign against the newly appointed and quite effective Human Rights minister, Hooria Mansour, prompted her boycott of cabinet meetings.

Among the many challenges Hadi faces, the most urgent is child starvation. More than one million Yemeni children are acutely malnourished and 60% suffer from chronic malnutrition, UNICEF said this week. Yemen is also facing a devastating water shortage and 70% of Yemenis have no access to healthcare.

Following the revolution, Yemenis remain largely fragmented and at odds, with many groups and individuals jostling to achieve narrow interests and goals. The lack of communications infrastructure and political experience means that rival groups and former opponents have yet to form a clear national consensus that the rescue of the starving children is the nation’s top priority. Saleh's overthrow has not yet shifted the balance of power between the citizenry and the elite, but instead instead resulted in a partial and ongoing re-shuffle of elites.

As a result, protests across the nation continued following the election, demanding the removal of Saleh’s son Ahmed Saleh, commander of the Special Forces, and Saleh’s nephew Yahya Saleh, commander of the Central Security. The pair are the primary conduits of US counter-terror efforts and recipients of US CT funds and equipment. Ahmed Saleh is reported to own four condos in Washington, D.C. for which he paid 5.5 million dollars in cash.

Continuing US loyalty to Saleh’s relatives baffles and frustrates Yemenis. Nobel Laureate Tawakkol Karman said, “I cannot believe the US didn’t know of Saleh’s relationship to al Qaeda.” Karman also described ousted president Ali Saleh as "the real hand" behind al Qaeda.

Judge Hamoud al Hittar was Minister of Endowments and spearheaded Yemen's earlier efforts to reform imprisoned al Qaeda operatives through dialog and Koranic debate. He resigned the Ministry in 2011 following regime excesses during the revolution. Al Hittar recently described Ansar al Sharia, the extremist group that occupied several southern towns until Hadi's election, as a blend of al Qaeda operatives, Saleh loyalists and those with local grievances.

Al Hittar also said, "some relatives of Saleh personally contacted with Al-Qaeda operatives and hampered the completion of investigation on the case of USS Cole." Many others have warned of the nexus between the Saleh's mafia and al Qaeda.

In June 2012, President Obama notified Congress of direct US military actions in Yemen, as required by the 1973 War Powers Resolution, stating “The U.S. military has also been working closely with the Yemeni government to operationally dismantle and ultimately eliminate the terrorist threat posed by al-Qa’ida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), the most active and dangerous affiliate of al-Qa’ida today. Our joint efforts have resulted in direct action against a limited number of AQAP operatives and senior leaders in that country who posed a terrorist threat to the United States and our interests.”

In addition to the State Department’s July 3 move to open the floodgates for arms and contractors, the Pentagon announced that it will resume shipping about $112 million in weapons and equipment for counter-terrorism operations, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta wrote to congressional defense committees on July 5.

Yemen received $252 million in counter-terrorism funding through mid 2010. Shipments were later suspended after state forces, including the Air Force and units commanded by Ahmed and Yahya Saleh, turned their weapons against protesters.

US humanitarian and development aid to Yemen is expected to top $175 million this year.

The faulty Blue Lantern

Yemeni protesters and elites and US officials all consider the restructuring of the Yemeni military and security forces as a top priority. However the phrase has differing meanings to each group. For Yemenis "restructuring" means decommissioning Saleh's relatives; to the US it means arming them.

Additionally, many in Yemen and the US have valid concerns about the US ability to effectively monitor US military shipments to Yemen. US embassy personnel have had difficulty in conducting “Blue Lantern” spot checks on US supplied weapons as far back as 2004, according to one Wikileaks cable.

As a result, in July 2008, the first-ever bilateral agreement between the Yemeni and American armed forces was concluded. In a press release posted to the website of the US embassy in Sana’a, then Ambassador Seche said the End Use Monitoring Agreement (EUMA) for U.S-sponsored military and security assistance would prevent “the misuse or illicit transfer of these items and service.” The press release and all references to the 2008 EUMA have since been scrubbed from the US embassy’s website.

Despite the EUMA, in 2009 US trained counter-terror units and US supplied equipment were routinely diverted to internal armed conflicts in northern Yemen, according to diplomatic cables released by Wikileaks. "In the cables, US diplomats complain that their requests for Yemen to halt such diversions were having little effect," Human Rights Watch remarked in calling for an investigation into US counter-terrorism assistance to Yemen.

A January 2010 report issued by Senate Committee on Foreign Relations found that some of the weapons the US government had shipped to the Yemeni military could not be accounted for and that the Yemeni military was “likely” diverting US counter-terror assistance to wage war against their own citizens in the north. The Foreign Relations Committee's fact finding mission further expressed uncertainty that US Embassy personnel fully understood what the EUMA required, and that diversion was prohibited. The report noted,

This potential misuse of security assistance underscores the importance of enhancing the current (2008) end-use monitoring regime for U.S.-provided equipment. Indeed, the existing end-use monitoring protocols in place have revealed discrepancies between U.S. records of security assistance and those that are in the possession of Yemeni defense forces.

At a House Foreign Affairs Committee meeting on Yemen a month later, Member Ron Klein (D-FL) noted, “The worst thing we can have for our country, and our troops, and our interests over there is to find that U.S. weapons are being used against us.”

In response, Jeffery Feltman, Assistant Secretary of State assured the committee that, “We're very aware of the human -- of a poor human rights record in Yemen. We're very aware of the fact that the country is awash in a black -- in a black market on weapons. So these factors very much play into how we do the monitoring.”

In December 2010, Human Rights Watch urged the US to “investigate Yemen's apparent diversion of US counterterrorism assistance to an abusive military campaign unrelated to terrorist threats and suspend such aid unless the misuse has stopped.” However, US support was only curtailed in mid-2011 when such abuses occurred in the full glare of the western media attending the popular uprising against Saleh's regime.

Fanning the fire

The impending influx of private contractors and new gun sales to a variety of end users in Yemen permitted under the ITAR revision magnify these concerns about the diversion of US supplied weapons onto the Yemeni black market and their use against civilians and for political ends.

With the loyalty of some units in the military and security services, and vast chunks of the state bureaucracies, lying with former President Saleh and competing commanders, President Hadi’s task of wresting control of the state from al Qaeda and private militias is daunting.

The ITAR’s revision in its policy on Yemen may arise from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s vision for a State Department that actively prevents low intensity conflicts. In a speech at a military trade show, Ms Clinton cited US intervention in Yemen as an example of her vision of a more integrated and effective nexus between foreign partners, US diplomats and Special Forces, the Danger Room reports,

The State Department has stood up a new bureau of Conflict and Stabilization Operations, which Clinton said “is working to put into practice lessons learned over the past decade and institutionalize a civilian surge capacity to deal with crises and hotspots.” Together, Special Operations Forces and State’s new Conflict Bureau are the twin arms of an expanding institution for waging small, low-intensity shadow wars all over the world.

But rumor has it Clinton’s vision has its detractors — and that its implementation in hotspots such as Yemen and Congo has made some Special Operations Forces officers very unhappy. In Yemen, in particular, some commando officers look upon the State Department’s expanding shadow-war powers as a bureaucratic intrusion on what should be military territory. A source tells Danger Room that in Yemen State has effectively hijacked all U.S. counter-terrorism funding, requiring a labyrinthine approval process for even small expenditures. According to detractors, the funding control is a way of cementing State’s expansion into the Special Operations Forces traditional remit.

The introduction of private defense contractors and commercial weapons vendors to Yemen in an effort to stabilize the state, enhance its reach and thwart al Qaeda carries both potential risk and reward. With the US’s proven inability to keep track of its prior military shipments, the revision of the ITAR has the potential to inflame low intensity conflicts already underway. Many of these internal disputes have deep roots and long histories; others are a result of the reconfigurations that occurred during and after the 2011 Yemen Revolution.

At the same time, the Yemeni military and security services are sorely in need of re-organization, training, standardized methods and modern equipment. A strong legal framework including respect for civil and human rights, and the rights of the soldiers themselves, needs be introduced from the top down and the bottom up. An impartial body in Yemen should also provide oversight and limitations on imports allowed under the revised US ITAR.

Yemeni service men and women, police and security officers, are in the cross hairs of al Qaeda with assassinations and suicide bombers targeting them nearly daily. And like other sectors of the ravaged and dysfunctional Yemen state, the military and security services could benefit greatly from international aid and support. But the focus of the US State Department must remain on creating an effective and cohesive national force that serves all the Yemeni people and not only urgent US counter-terror interests.

Police Seek Second Person of Interest in Aurora Murders

AURORA, Colo. — Sources tell FOX31 Denver reporter Justin Joseph that a second man is now a person-of-interest in the Aurora theater shooting investigation. We are not disclosing his identity because he has not been charged.

... Sources tell Justin Joseph someone made either a call or a text from the person of interest’s phone threatening violence if James Egan Holmes was not released from jail. That call prompted police to issue an alert to find and detain him.

21 People Burned Walking On Hot Coals

I can understand the first guy getting burned. He's all fired up, ready to show everyone how tough he is, he's going to go for it.

I can understand the second guy as well. He sees the first guy get burned, but he's probably thinking the first guy wasn't motivated enough or he did it wrong somehow. The second guy would be determined to prove he can do it despite what happened to the first guy.

Maybe, you can even make a case for the third guy. He might be thinking the first two are morons, they didn't follow directions, let's show them how its done...

But if you are the twenty-first guy, WTF are you thinking? The tortured screams of agony of 20 other people didn't discourage you in any way?

From The Blaze:

Fire officials in California say at least 21 people were treated for burns after attendees of an event for motivational speaker Tony Robbins tried to walk on hot coals.

The San Jose Mercury News reports that at least three people went to a hospital and most suffered second- or third-degree burns. [...]

Witness Jonathan Correll says he heard “screams of agony.” He explained it was hard to watch as one young woman appeared to be in so much pain.

“I heard wails of pain, screams of agony,” he said. “It was horrific.”

No, three is horrific.

Bulgarian authorities release artist’s sketch of man said to have helped Burgas terrorist

bulgarian terrorist helper.jpg

Via The Times of Israel

[B]ulgarian authorities on Friday released an artist’s sketch of a man believed to have helped the bomber who blew up a bus full of Israeli tourists in Burgas on Wednesday, killing five Israelis and the Bulgarian bus driver.

Bulgarian officials have been quoted in the past two days as saying the suicide bomber was not Bulgarian, but had some local assistance.[...]

According to one eyewitness report, the man [bomber..ed] got talking to a group of tourists from Holland, and told them that his mother was Dutch and his father was Iranian.

Attacker had short hair, not long
Bulgarian prosecutors said the attacker had short hair, not the long hair seen in the security video footage captured of him at the airport. A witness said he appeared to be wearing a wig[...]

Afrodita Petrova, the owner of the car rental company, told Bulgarian National TV that the suspect had short dark hair when visiting the office. She said he was the same person from the video camera footage and appeared to be wearing a wig.

He spoke English with an Arab accent,” she said.

Bomber spoke "English with Arab accent" and "mother Dutch and father Iranian".

Also, (h/t @webradius), the image above is supposedly an "American" that goes by the name of David Jepson. Another fake ID holder like the bomber?

Googlish

Release: Bulgarian police director in the last hours hunting for another suspect, who seemed Assistant of the terrorist who carried out the attack Burgas, which killed five Israelis and a Bulgarian citizen and injuring dozens. Security forces suspect that the Assistant, David Jepson, an American citizen, holds possession of another bomb.
Hmmm

Man Shouting "Allahu Akbar" Tries To Grab Olympic Torch

From Mediaite:

A young man tried, rather unsuccessfully, to snatch the Olympic torch as it made its way through England this morning. The 17-year-old appears to have been waiting behind a car as torch bearer Anna Skora made her way down the road, leaping out to try and grab the lit torch away from her as she prepared to pass it on to fellow runner Graham White.

The teen had somehow managed to make his way through the police escorts running alongside Skora, but the runner was able to maintain her grasp on the torch. Reports say he shouted “Allahu Akbar” (“God is great”) after his attempt, eventually being led away by security.

Did the BBC edit the audio?

Below the fold, another angle in which he can be heard shouting. Quite clearly, in fact, even at what appears to be about the same distance away. Makes you wonder if the BBC video above was deliberately edited. I've turned the volume all the way up but still can't hear his shout. I can hear other noises - whistling, chattering, cries, grunting and scuffling, but no "Allahu akbar."

Batman Massacre (suspect Identified as one James Holmes)(Bumped)

aurora shooter.jpg
U of Colorado, Denver released his picture

*****Sticky for short while******

That's the headline I woke up to this morning. The attack on a theater in Aurora Colorado occurred late last night. 14 12[update..SH] are confirmed dead via NPR this morning.

A heavily armed gunman killed at least 14 people and wounded 50 more during an early Friday morning screening of the new Batman movie at an Aurora, Colorado, theater, police Chief Dan Oates told reporters.

Police arrested a man believed to be the shooter in a rear parking lot of the theater, Frank Fania, a police spokesman, told CNN. The suspect was not immediately identified, though Fania said he was believed to be in his early 20s.
"He did not resist. He did not put up a fight," Fania said. Police seized a rifle and a handgun from the suspect, and another gun was found in the theater, he said.

The killer first set off what might have been a pepper spray bomb and then shot at guests in the theater as they fled. The theater was a mutiplex located in a large mall. The suspect is in custody.

There is no word on the identity or motive of the suspect at this time.

Update: The suspect is identified as a man named James Holmes.

Police chief Dan Oates told reporters that an apartment block in the north of Aurora had been evacuated as they investigated that information.

The gunman was named as James Holmes, by FBI and Department of Homeland Security sources.

...Another witness, Chayyiel Jackson, told the BBC: "During the first action scene in the movie, on the right side a dude came in all blacked out, with a black mask. At first we thought it was part of the movie event.

"He threw tear gas across the crowd and after that people started to panic. He pulled out a rifle and started shooting.

Update by SH: The shooter is 24 years old and and a local resident. The police are searching his apartment now
Local news reports showed aerial video of police cautiously searching Holmes' apartment, some five miles from the Century Aurora 16 theater, as the suspect reportedly told police he had explosives inside.
Update II by SH: Two[same person...ed] of those killed identified, both she moved from Texas to Colorado. Jessica Ghawi, originally from San Antonio and Jessica Redfield:[Note update below. Per commenter TinDenver she uses Redfield as her TV anchor name]
6:36 AM: Our Melody Mendez is reporting that another one of the 12 dead is Jessica Refield, a native of Texas who moved to Colorado last year. She interned for FOX31 for a brief time. Mendez said she was a huge sports fan, who also interned for a Denver radio station.


Eerily, Redfield, was at Toronto's Eaton Center when the mass shooting happened in June of this year

I can’t get this odd feeling out of my chest. This empty, almost sickening feeling won’t go away. I noticed this feeling when I was in the Eaton Center in Toronto just seconds before someone opened fire in the food court. An odd feeling which led me to go outside and unknowingly out of harm‘s way.
Update III: FNC is reporting Jessica Redfield also goes by the name Jessica Ghawi. So strike the update above about 2 different people. Per TinDever Redfield is her TV anchor name.

Update IV by SH: Police say shooting suspect's home has been booby trapped. "Sophisticated setup":

8:58 Aurora Police are saying that the third floor of James Holme’s apartment is boobie-trapped with sophisticated explosives. The entire building and surrounding area at 17th and Oswego have been evacuated.

9:11 AM: Police say they’ve evacuated 5 buildings near suspect James Holmes’ booby-trapped apartment. “It appears that’s sufficient at this time,” officials said. They continued to say “it could be hours, it could be days” until the apartment is ruled safe again.

9:15 AM: CU-Denver Medical Campus said that suspected shooter was a student in the Fall of 2011. He was studying some form of neuroscience at the Medical Campus and withdrew in June.

Update V by SH: 6 yr old child has died, father confirmed to FNC

Update VI by SH: Service members from Buckley AFB among injured:

Service members from Buckley Air Force Base, Colo., are among those injured in the early morning shooting Friday in Aurora, Colo. that left at least 12 people dead, base spokeswoman Master Sgt. Jill LaVoie said.

It is not yet known how many were injured or if they were all from the Air Force, LaVoie said. The shooting happened at a movie theater about five miles from the base.

Live Press briefing on now, watch here

[Update 7:16p news conference]71 70 injured (small number injured getting out of theater, rest of 70 shot), 12 killed. 10 died at crime scene and 2 in the hospital.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to those affected by this tragedy.

Update VII: Regarding our troops at theater, per CNN

Washington (CNN) -- U.S. troops were among the casualties in the shooting rampage at the Colorado movie theater, including a sailor who was listed as unaccounted for, the Pentagon said Friday.

The Defense Department released a statement that said one sailor was injured and another one, known to have been at the theater, was unaccounted for. Two airmen were wounded in the incident, it said.

News conference 7:16p: Work on booby trapped apartment ceased until tomorrow morning. Unbelievable amount of ammunition perp purchased over the internet. He purchased his weapons locally.

Note: No longer sticky, but will update if any new and confirmed developments happen. Law enforcement have their hands full, especially the situation at his apartment building.

Update by Howie 07/22/12/ So I guess the chief is lying when he said didn't leak the Joker meme to NY. When I saw the red and green windows in the apartment . Well.

I'm not sure why they are being so difficult about telling more about the suspect. But I have some ideas about that. It will become clear in some days. I suspect a lot of things will become much clearer. I predict the perp does use the internet (just not in his name, wink wink) and is not the totally isolated recluse he's portrayed as. Nor is he insane. And also life is playing out pretty much like Batman.

Joker? Really? I sense something....

Update again. See I told you.

aurora22n-2-web.jpg

Judging by his eyes in the picture he's seriously on the shit.

I can't find an image of the red and green windows? I've only seen it in a live shot from Fox. Then they didn't show it anymore? If anyone has the image please drop it in comments.

Obama Campaign Attacks Romney For Quoting Obama

"If you’ve got a business - you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen."

That's what Obama said, according to Mitt Romney. The Obama Campaign is claiming Obama didn't say it.

Let's go to the tape:

Obama sounds like his philosophy is very much like another politician from history. Joseph Goebbles said:

"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State."

Obama is telling some whoppers now! Let's see how often he can repeat them. Lies are the only way Obama can get re-elected.

"Senior US Official": Bulgaria Terror Attack Tit -For-Tat For Israel Ops vs Iranian Nuke Program

We are "tit for tat" according to a anon US official

WTF?

BURGAS, Bulgaria — A senior American official confirmed Israel’s assertions on Thursday that the suicide bomber who killed five Israelis in an attack here on Wednesday was a member of a Hezbollah cell operating in Bulgaria.

The official said the current American intelligence assessment is that the bomber was “acting under broad guidance” to hit Israeli targets when the opportunity presented itself. That guidance was given to Hezbollah, a Lebanese militant group, by its primary sponsor, Iran, he said.

The attacks, the official said, were in retaliation for the assassinations of Iranian nuclear scientists by Israeli agents, something that Israel has neither confirmed nor denied. “This was tit for tat,” said the American official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the investigation was still underway[...]

For their part[NYT gotta put this in], Iranian officials condemned the attack and all acts of terrorism. “Terrorism endangers the lives of innocents,” said a spokesman for the Foreign Ministry, Ramin Mehmanparast, according to Iran’s state Arabic-language television channel, Al Alam.

Gawd, has the Obama administration gone completely mad?

Five Israeli Victims of Bulgaria Terror Attack Named

bulgaria bombing victims.jpg

Via JPost

The Interior Ministry released on Thursday the names of the five Israelis murdered in a suicide bombing in Bulgaria Wednesday: Itzik Colangi, 28, Amir Menashe, 28, Elior Price, 26, Maor Harosh, 25, and Kochava Shriki, 44.

Itzik Colangi and Amir Menashe were good friends from Petah Tikva. Colangi's wife GIlat gave birth to their first child, Noya, four months ago, and his birthday was two weeks ago. The couple decided to celebrate in Burgas with their friends Natalie and Amir Menashe, who have a ten-month-old son, Rom. Gilat was severely injured and Natalie was lightly injured from the terrorist attack, while Itzik and Amir were killed while packing their luggage onto the bus.

Elior Price, a student, and Maor Harosh, an electrician, grew up together in Acre and went on vacation to Bulgaria with another close friend, Daniel Fahima. Harosh and Price were killed, while Fahima was severely injured.

Kochava Shriki of Rishon Lezion, was pregnant for the first time after years of fertility treatments. She gave her family the good news shortly before leaving for vacation in Bulgaria with her husband Yitzhak. After the attack, Yitzhak, who was injured, searched for Kochava in the rubble and in the hospital in Bulgaria, and learned of her death a day later.[More...]

Again, our thoughts and prayers are with family and friends of these innocents.

Senseless, senseless killing of innocents.

You know, if you're going to call 911 to complain about a bad mugshot, you should really put on some makeup and fix your hair before you make the call. Because they are going to come right out and make another picture!

A Winder Police Department report notes that Fowler dialed 911 on July 15 “in reference to being upset about a picture.” In a conversation with a cop, Fowler explained that she “was upset about how she looked on the front page of the Bad and Busted printing.”

As a result of the 911 call about her mug shot, Fowler was afforded the opportunity to pose for a fresh booking photo since she was charged with unlawful use of 911 and disorderly conduct.

Report: Bulgaria Bus Bombing: Suicide Bomber a 'Caucasian with Michigan License' (Updated/Bumped: Bomber NOT Identified as Mehdi Ghezali)

bulgaria_2.jpg
Image credit: @einfal

Fake ID's?

The suspected suicide bomber who killed seven people in a blast that ripped apart a bus full of Israeli tourists was carrying a Michigan drivers licence, according to AP.

Authorities are investigating the identity of the bomber who struck at Sarafovo international airport in the resort city of Burgas, around 250 miles east of the capital, Sofia.

The Sofia News Agency said, however, that the bomber was carrying a US passport, identifying him as a Michigan resident, which is believed to be fake.

Initial reports suggested that the explosion was caused by a bomb placed in the luggage compartment of the bus. INvestigations carried out by Bulgarian authorities in conjunction with the FBI, CIA and Israeli authorities now points to a suicide bomber described as a caucasian man with long hair and sports attire, according to the report.

Bulgaria's interior minister, Tsvetan Tsvetanov told the Associated Press that the suspected bomber appeared on security tape for almost an hour before the attack, which injured dozens and claimed eight lives including the bomber's.

Update by SH: Hmmm, back to suicide bomber now? Makes more sense as a witness who was injured stated as soon as "a" person entered the bus the explosion happened.

Michigan license? I wonder about this: Hezbollah Operatives in the Bay Area and this: Hezbollah TV in Bay Area.

Just a thought. Update

A check by the F.B.I. showed that the suicide bomber was carrying a fake U.S. passport as well as a fake driver’s license of a person that doesn’t exist. The attack was carried out at the Bourgas airport shortly after the tourists had boarded their bus at the airport.
Ignore my "just a thought" in this case, but...Hezbollah is alive and well in the US

Bulgaria: Possible 3 7 Dead (in Suicide?) Bombing on Israeli Tour Bus

Update by Howie: The bomber is identified as Mehdi Ghezali.

806990_133_190.jpg
Ghezali was detained in Guantánamo Bay military prison between January 2002 and July 2004 after being captured in the Tora Bora mountains in Pakistan close to the border with Afghanistan where a US bombing campaign was carried out in order to capture AL Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden. Ghezali was released from Guantánamo without any charge and on his return to Sweden spoke of his experiences of torture during his detainment.
Hat Tip: Webradius.

More on Mehdi Ghezali long history as a Jihadi here.

He studied in UK under Omar Bakri Muhammad, he was captured in by the Pakistanis as well.

On 10 September 2009, the Swedish television programme Rapport reported that Ghezali was among a group of twelve foreign citizens who had been arrested one week earlier in the Dera Ghazi Khan District in Punjab, Pakistan, on suspicions of having ties to al-Qaeda. Pakistani security officials reported the 12 men were captured on 28 August 2009. Among the twelve arrested men, three (including Ghezali) were Swedish, seven were Turkish, one was Russian and another one was an Iranian citizen. According to the Pakistani police chief Mohammad Rizwan, the individuals were arrested when they were trying to sneak into the Punjab province through a checkpoint.

According to Rizwan, the police had found CDs, exchange money and literature which all indicated links to terrorist activity. Following their arrest, Ghezali and the two other Swedish citizens were moved to Islamabad.Rizwan described Ghezali as "a very dangerous man".

...The Swedes were released on 10 October 2009. They were placed on a plane to Sweden at 800 GMT. Rehman Malik Pakistan’s Minister of the Interior had told Swedish diplomats on 6 October 2009 that he would be receiving a formal report on the Swedes on 7 October 2009, and that he would make a decision about their continued detention at that point. Swedish paper The Local reported one additional anonymous allegation, that the group "were found in a prohibited area near a nuclear power facility."

For his part Ghazali always claimed to be innocent and mistreated by officials from all the states involved and that claims of his Jihadism were based on Islamophobia
His lawyers expressed concern that Swedish intelligence officials continued to keep Ghezali under surveillance. They expressed concern that the press speculation that his travel to Pakistan had been inspired by support for jihadism was unfair and unsupported by any evidence.
Uh yeah.

Update II: I'm getting reports that Bulgaria is denying it was Ghezali. Will update if it becomes clear that is the case.

Update III: Sweden too denies the bomber was Ghazali. Reports are that Facebook users noted the similarity in appearance between this tape of the bomber and previous images of Ghazali. The story spread from there.

Here is an image of the fake ID of the bomber that shows he's clearly not Ghazali.

1214272988.jpg

Although the Bulgarian Media reported...

Bulgarian media quoted the country's interior minister as saying that the man who was responsible for the attack in a Burgas airport, which killed five and wounded 34 Israelis, is Ghezali, who is a 33-year-old Swedish citizen of Algerian descent.
Also of interest is the fake Michigan ID shows a Louisiana address.

Hmmm, has Aaron Walker (aka Worthing) clipped the lawfare wings of the bigot/racist, convicted dope dealer/perjurer/Speedway Bomber/domestic terrorist turned left wing political activist/serial litigant Brett Kimberlin?

If I'm not mistaken, well, read the link below:

Previous:

Aaron reminds everyone do not contact, harass, email, etc Team Kimberlin, or their families, etc. The screencaps, emails, etc will be used for more lawfare. Besides, why turn yourself into those that disgust you as much as this group does They don't deserve to be threatened either is what I am getting at. First Amendment rights are for all citizens of this beautiful country, and eventually Team Kimberlin will understand that...eventually.[ Even their "apparent" astroturfed comments have failed.]

By posting about "Team Kimberlin" I am not threatening anyone, just linking to the facts. I wasn't asked to post this by Walker nor has anyone else "asked me" to post anything about "Team Kimberlin.

Samir Khan's aka Inshallashaheed Mommy Sues Over His Death

Samirkhanrocketscientist.JPG

Lawfare Blog

The ACLU has filed suit over the deaths in drone strikes of three U.S. citizens: Anwar Al-Aulaqi, his 16-year-old son, and AQAP propagandist Samir Khan. The complaint is available here. The ACLU’s press release is available here. I haven’t yet read the complaint, which just became available a few moments ago, but Hina Shamsi, director of the ACLU’s National Security Project, says the following in an email:
Our lawsuit, which is against senior CIA and military officials, charges that the killings of U.S. citizens Anwar Al-Aulaqi, Samir Khan, and 16-year-old Abdulrahman Al-Aulaqi in Yemen last year violated the Constitution’s guarantee against the deprivation of life without due process of law.

We argue that since 2002, and routinely since 2009, the United States has carried out deliberate and premeditated killings of suspected terrorists overseas, outside the context of armed conflict, based on vague legal standards, a closed executive process, and evidence never presented to the courts.

The problem Mom and Daddy is that Samir was armed and was a member of al-Qaeda in an area where hostilities between AQAP and the US were known to run both ways. AQAP planning and executing attacks against the US and the US involved in active operations against al-Qaeda and its affiliates in Yemen.

Even Samir's online moniker InshallaShaheed indicates he sought to be martyred and he wanted to be martyred while working for his favorite group of terrorists, al-Qaeda

Your son was an unlawful belligerent working in support of a terrorist group that had declared war against the US. Not to mention treason. He deserved a much worse death than the one he was given and The American Calumniator Liberties Union has picked a loser on this one.

Oh and Samir's father Zafar Khan can suck it!

Bulgaria: Possible 3 7 Dead in Suicide Bomber Attack Israeli Tour Bus (Updated)

bulgaria bombing of Israelis.jpg
Smoke rises from airport terminal in Burgas, Bulgaria, after suicide bombing of bus carrying Israeli tourists. (Israel Channel 2)

[Image credit: FOXNews]

07/19/2012 update here. It was a suicide bomber and not a bomb in the luggage hold that killed 5 Israelis, 1 Bulgarian (the bus driver) and a unknown, as yet, suicide bomber. The terrorist had a fake Michigan drivers license and passport.

________________________________________________________________

Developing..

Arutz Sheva

An explosion on a bus transporting Israeli tourists at the airport near the city of Burgas in Bulgaria has left at least three Israelis dead. Some reports say there are five dead.

The Foreign Ministry has announced that it is sending personnel to the site.

Voice of Israel Radio said that 25 people are wounded. It said that a suicide bomber boarded the bus before the explosion occurred, but other reports said the explosion came from the bus's luggage hold.

Update: Via JPost
Three Israelis[updated to 7...ed] were killed and many injured when a suicide bomber blew up an Israeli tourist bus at the airport of the Bulgarian city of Burgas on Wednesday, the 18th anniversary of the Iran-sponsored attack on the AMIA Jewish center in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The bus was carrying Israeli tourists who landed in Bulgaria at a 4:45 p.m, and was meant to take them to Bulgaria's Sunny Beach resort. Two adjacent buses were also damaged in the blast.

Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman spoke with his Bulgarian counterpart Nikolay Mladenov in relation to the explosion.

Mladenov is heading to the site of the blast and said that he will bring Liberman up to date when he arrives.

Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by this senseless killing of innocents.

Update by Howie :Bulgarian Press reports.

Panic is rampant because the parking lot full of cars, taxis and tourists, transmit agencies. "Everywhere there are body parts, is staggering," said a witness of what happened to the site Burgas24. According to BNT blast happened on Bourgas Airport shortly after 17:30. The group has included a total of 40 Israeli travelers who had arrived for the 8-day summer vacation in Bulgaria. They had to stay at the "Chrysanthemum" in Sunny Beach. More than 20 people were admitted to hospital in Burgas, and four are in critical condition,
There has been no claim on the bombing but the date of the attack is significant and suggests Iran.

Update by SH: At least 7 were killed and 27 wounded per FOXNews via The Right Scoop

PM Netanyahu "All signs point to Iran"

Update by SH: Via Haaretz

8:24 P.M.: Several internet sites in Bulgaria reports that government authorities ignored warnings and alerts by Israeli and Russian sources over a possible attack

8:15 P.M.: Burgus Mayor Dimitar Nikolov tells Bulgarian media that 33 Israeli tourists have been hospitalized, and nine other Israelis are still missing.

8:03 P.M.: Bulgarian media reports that one of those killed is a local tour guide

8:00 P.M.: Michal, the mother of Ron Parhan who flew to Bulgaria on Wednesday, said that her daughter called her in panic, and said that someone blew himself up on the bus. “She sustained cuts and was bleeding, they removed her through the window of the bus. She was hysterical, and is there without a cell phone, so she could not say much” (Revital Hovel).

7:52 P.M.: Bulgarian news agency reports 30 wounded in the attack, four of which are in serious condition[...]

7:50 P.M.: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu: "Iran is responsible for the terror attack in Bulgaria, we will have a strong response against Iranian terror."

Update: Initial reports stated suicide bombing but apparently a bomb was placed in the luggage hold of the bus
Initial reports claimed a suicide bomber carried out the attack, but later reports indicated that a bomb was placed in the bus’s luggage hold.

The victims are believed to have arrived on a charter flight from Tel Aviv that landed at 4:50 p.m. local time. Bulgarian TV reports that an anonymous caller to a tourist office said Israelis would be “welcomed by two bombs.

Update by SH:

Via Times of Israel[who have been liveblogging]

Of those injured in the blast, 10 are said to be undergoing surgery in Bulgaria at present. Another 20 are less badly hurt, and the plan is for them to be flown home from early tomorrow for treatment[...]

Latest info: There were 47 people on the bus, most of them young, heading for the Sunny Beach resort. Along with the seven dead, three more people are in life-threatening condition, and another 30-plus are injured.

Update: 5 Israelis were killed, the other two were apparently the tour guide and the bus driver who were from Bulgaria.

A comment from one of our resident Islamists trolls.:

Really the Islamic Messiah will rekill Jesus? And didn't you just confirm.. .. He Lives!

Maybe you should leave your death cult and convert now, while you're still ahead.

Who is a liar but whoever denies that Yeshua is The Messiah? Such a person is a false messiah. He who denies The Father denies also the Son.

Jihadists in Germany Pose Terrorist Threat to America and its Allies, says New TRAC Analysis

Like we didn't know already, but, this is a good read.

Via PRWeb

Although the current hotbed of militant Islam is generally thought to be concentrated in Yemen and Somalia, some of the most dangerous leaders and terrorist cells directed at the “far enemy” (U.S. and its European allies) are in Germany. That’s the assertion of a new analysis of the extreme branch of Islam known as Salafism that has been added to the Publishing Center in Terrorism Research & Analysis Consortium (TRAC), an online resource center for the study of terrorism and political violence. The analysis reveals how Germany’s Salafist groups are deeply connected to the most prominent jihadist leaders and are the perpetrators of homegrown, sophisticated plots and attacks against U.S. and European targets.

“Germany has seen a growing number of radicalized German Muslims and recent converts willing to take up arms,” said Maha Hamdan, author of the analysis and a noted researcher on Salafism and jihad. “Those Jihadists are overwhelmingly not foreign born immigrants. Many are natural born Germans who have converted from a Western religion to Islam. What is unique about these German-born converts to Islam is their attraction to militancy.”

[ Continue reading]

While reading the article I thought of this from May: German Police Suspend Officer Over Islamists (Salafists) Links.
......Questioned about his activities, Ali K. had said Muslims must put their religious beliefs before loyalty to German laws and institutions, Lindemann said, triggering concern in the police about how reliable he was as an officer.
The video below shows the same Salafist group the officer has links to. Note the al-Qaeda flags they have at app 1:04:

In the PRWeb article it was noted:

Hamdan examines the background and influence of German clerics who have established ties with the Taliban, al Qaeda and its highest-ranking leaders
Be sure and read it all.

Pallywood Art: Exhibition Displays Fake Artwork By 'Children'

gaza_original_art.jpg
(Original art? Left, 2009 cartoon by Carlos Latuff, and, right, spontaneous artwork by a child in Gaza.)

Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East (CJPME) is sponsoring an art exhibit with works they claim are done by children ages 5 - 14. Art experts agree that either these children are extraordinarily gifted beyond even the likes of Michelangelo or the works are fake:

gazamecapic.jpg

...the sponsoring organization, the Middle East Children’s Alliance (MECA) claims that the pictures were drawn by children from 9 to 11 years of age. That’s nonsense. Look at the drawing above. Note how the viewer’s eye is drawn to the slightly off-center focal point, the child cowering in the corner, the suggestion of despair evoked by the black shading around him. Look at the effective representation of the soldier’s face with a few strokes. Look at the sureness of the lines, the bold strokes. Whoever drew this was either an adult artist or a remarkable prodigy, sophisticated both artistically and politically.

(FresnoZionism via Elder of Ziyon)

Read more HERE and HERE.

As an Art non-Expert, it is difficult for me to determine whether the artworks are truly by children or not. As many others with much more experience have pointed out, the techniques seem far too advanced for children.

Below the fold, I found a few more pieces in the exhibit that are suspect. What do you think?

Obama V. Clinton On Taxes

Thanks to Dick Morris for putting this up. I think it makes a strong argument that President Obama is being deceptive when he talks about Clinton tax rates.

Dick Morris:
President Obama is trying to re-write history when he says that his tax program is the same as Bill Clinton supported “when 23 million jobs were created.”

It’s not that way at all. Clinton’s 1993 increase of personal income taxes on the top bracket to 39.6% had a very negative effect on the economy. It was only after Clinton’s 1997 cut the capital gains tax – the opposite of what Obama proposes – that job growth really piled up.

...Clinton suddenly saw the error of his ways and began to hold down spending and push for a tax cut. In 1997, he and the Republican Congress combined to cut capital gains taxes from 28% (the rate to which Bush had increased it) to 20%. The result was electrifying! Real wage growth was 6.5% in the four years after the tax cut compared to minuscule wage growth of 0.8% over the four years after Clinton’s tax increase!

Read the rest.

Another difference, Bill Clinton was at least capable of adjustment when needed, but Obama's Neo-Communist ideology prevents him from accepting similar adjustments.

Youtube Moderators Join Obama Campaign

I for one am like all shocked and stuff that Jihadtube's moderators Favor the Obama campaign over the Romney's campaign.

Huffpo: Two days after President Barack Obama's campaign put out a brutal ad making fun of Mitt Romney's singing abilities, the Romney campaign responded in kind with a web video mocking Obama for singing Al Green's "Let's Stay Together."

However, on Monday afternoon, that video was no longer available.

It was taken down by a "copyright claim". Yeah right...
"Our use was 100% proper, under fair use, and we plan to defend ourselves," said a Romney campaign spokesperson.
Welcome to the club Mitt.

Ethiopian Muslims Reject Moderate Islamic Sect That Rejects Violence

In favor of more mainstream Islam, that is an Islam that is ultra-conservative and favors violence.

Hundreds of thousands of irate Ethiopian Muslims took to the streets of Addis Ababa this weekend – Africa’s biggest protests since Tahrir Square. They want the government to stop meddling in their religious affairs, and acknowledge that Muslims can’t remain a marginalised minority. Ethiopia’s Christian-led government better make some concessions quickly, or risk finding out exactly how many irate Muslims there really are.

.. more recent spark for the unrest has been the government’s perceived meddling in religious affairs by encouraging and supporting one minority Muslim sect over the more mainstream others. Terrified of the potential emergence of Al Shabaab-style fundamentalist Islam, Zenawi’s administration has promoted one particular sect of Islam, the Al Ahbash, which opposes ultra-conservative ideology and rejects violence. This has included appointing Al Ahbash clerics to lead the Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs, despite the fact that the Al Ahbash are pretty far from mainstream Islam – in Ethiopia and anywhere else.

Glad we cleared that up.

Fatwa Worthy Post

It would be difficult to top the Sodomy fatwa, but ListVerse compiled of some of the dumber ones. This is my favorite out of the somewhat outdated list:

According to Muslim Internet Forum Multaqa Ahl al Hadeeth, “Emoticons are forbidden because of its imitation to Allah’s creatures whether it is original or mixture or even deformed one and since the picture is the face and the face is what makes the real picture then emoticons which represent faces that express emotions then all that add up to make them Haram.” Additionally, “A woman should not use these images when speaking to a man who is not her mahram, because these faces are used to express how she is feeling, so it is as if she is smiling, laughing, acting shy and so on, and a woman should not do that with a non-mahram man. It is only permissible for a woman to speak to men in cases of necessity, so long as that is in a public chat room and not in private correspondence.”

Oregon County Extorts Taxpayers By Releasing Accused Murderers

Like they couldn't trim down the welfare budget by making a few able-bodies go to work...

From FNC:

A $100 million budget deficit in Oregon's Lane County has prompted the sheriff to release nearly 100 detainees and inmates from his jail, including several accused of killing people. Ninety-two prisoners were freed over three days this month as the jail closed a whole wing of its 507-bed facility.

“It was horrifying,” says Lane County Sheriff Tom Turner. “All the effort to get those people into the jail is now gone, wasted.”

I understand the U.S. Forest Service regulations, under Clinton's Administration, severely limited the lumber industry. And I can really understand releasing non-violent offenders during difficult financial times, but to release accused murderers waiting for trial? A 507 bed facility couldn't accommodate a few murderers? This is nothing short of extortion.

Zombie Preparation - Zombie Proof Your Car

Face it, when the Zombie Apocalypse begins, your vehicle may become your most important piece of survival equipment. You'll need to be able to move fast and securely.

If you're really poor (like me), this video will teach you how to modify your own vehicle with items from around the house:

Below the fold, more vehicle options for the Zombie Apocalypse.

If you are fortunate enough to have $300,000 lying around, this is the vehicle you'll want to have:

knight_XV_truck.jpg

It features:

  • FLIR night vision cameras*** mounted front and rear, on individual screens
  • Roof mounted rear view camera
  • Keyless entry system
  • Transparent, tinted, armor glass throughout
  • Tandem tinted moon roof panels (transparent armor) with privacy shades
  • ASC Ballistic run flat system on all tires
  • Securilok** passive anti theft key system
  • Ballistic fiberglass (with Kevlar) Bumpers and Fenders
  • Armored Grille

All standard. Some useful options include remote starter, surveillance cameras, external listening devices, bolt lock door system, oxygen kits, external smoke security, and electrostatic window tinting.

And for those of you who don't have $300,000 to drop on an anti-Zombie vehicle, Ford Fiesta has an economical alternative:

Remember, there will only be three types of people left once the Zombie Apocalypse starts: Conservatives, Zombies, and food. There will be no place or tolerance for socialism in a post-Zombie world. Survival of the fittest.

Egyptians Greet Hillary's Motorcade Yelling "Monica Monica Monica" While Throwing Tomatoes and Shoes

Who knew Egyptians were interested in Bill, I didn't have sex with that woman, Clinton's stained blue dress?

Protesters threw tomatoes and shoes at U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s motorcade on Sunday during her first visit to Egypt since the election of Islamist President Mohamed Mursi[...]

Protesters chanted: “Monica, Monica”, a reference to Former President Bill Clinton’s extra-marital affair. Some chanted: “leave, Clinton”, Egyptian security officials said.

It was not clear who the protesters were or what political affiliations they had[????..ed]Protesters outside Clinton’s hotel on Saturday night chanted anti-Islamist slogans, accusing the United States of backing the Muslim Brotherhood’s rise to power.

Frankly, their "disgust" was misplaced. Bill Clinton deserves their scorn, not Hillary. As to the "anti-Islamist slogans" Reuters chose to include in their reporting would lead one to believe anti-Muslim Brotherhood people were the ones shouting Monica and throwing shoes and tomatoes.

So, why did Reuters feel the need to add the anti-Islamist protest? Well, maybe because Egypt's Orthodox, Evangelical church leaders refused to meet with Hillary because, they felt, the US was supporting Ikhwan (Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood) from day one.

Representatives of Egypt's Orthodox and Evangelical churches on Sunday morning declined invitations to meet with US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to protest perceived US interference in Egypt's internal affairs.

Bishop Marcus of the Coptic Orthodox Church told Ahram Online that the clergymen's refusal to attend the meeting with Clinton was intended to voice "our rejection of US intervention in Egypt's domestic affairs and the Americans' strategy of favouring certain Egyptian political currents over others."

Safwat El-Beyadi, head of Egypt's Evangelical Church, likewise refused to meet with Clinton, as did the leaders of other churches

Why should they feel that way? Could it be because Obama bypassed Congress and gave Ikhwan our hard earned tax monies? Or that, here in the US, Obama has his very own Shariah Czar who is connected to the Muslim Brotherhood?

Nothing to see here because the chants "Monica Monica Monica" and shoes, tomato throwing involved a democrat.

Remember GW in Iraq? Like 24/7?

Remember Christians in Iraq? No?

Who, exactly, are the bad guyz in Reuters reporting? The Muslim Brotherhood or the Christians? Has Reuters ever enhanced & photo shopped images, ever?

Nothing to see here, move along.

PC Killed Shafilea Ahmed?

So, the victim of an honor killing -- Shafilea Ahmed -- begged the local government to give her a place to stay because her mom and dad were teaming up on her to teach her a lesson on what it means to be a good Pakistani girl. The article uses her pleas as evidence that her parents had a track record of beating her.

But it seems to miss the point, doesn't it? Isn't the real story hear that the town council either said no or drug its feet in helping this girl out? If she was in need of emergency housing, shouldn't she have gotten it, you know, quick like?

So, why didn't they give it to her? My immediate reaction for government do-gooder types is to question whether or not they ever heard of anything like honor killings back in 2002? That they had only heard positive things through government endorsed brain washing diversity training about people from other countries and cultures and how wonderful their lives were before the imperialist white man ruined it all so they just couldn't believe her story.

The other question I have is whether or not they have battered women's shelters in the UK and if emergency housing wasn't available right away shouldn't she have been directed to a local shelter? Women's shelters are ubiquitous here in the US, which is why you can find one even in the bass ackward one light town I live in.

India Daily News:

Shafilea Ahmed was desperately trying to find emergency housing away from her parents just days before being flown to Pakistan, a court heard yesterday.

In her application to Warrington Borough Council the 17-year-old said she wanted to leave home because she was being “forced” into an arranged marriage.

Shafilea, whom the prosecution alleges is the victim of a so-called honour killing, went on to claim she had been the victim of “regular incidents of violence” from the age of 15 or 16.

“One parent would hold me while the other would hit me,” she wrote

More Change, Less Hope for Islam's Rising Generation

I believe the children our our future, the Saudis teach them and let them lead the way... Mark Steyn:

The mistake made by virtually the entire Western media during the Arab Spring was to assume that social progress is like technological progress — that, like the wheel or the internal-combustion engine, women’s rights and gay rights cannot be disinvented. They can, very easily.

In Egypt, the youth who voted for the Muslim Brotherhood are more fiercely Islamic than their grandparents who backed Nasser’s revolution in 1952. In Tunisia, the young are more proscriptive than the secular old-timers who turned a blind eye to the country’s bars and brothels. In the developed world, we’re told that Westernization is “inevitable.” “Just wait and see,” say the blithely complacent inevitablists. “They haven’t yet had time to Westernize.” But Westernization is every bit as resistible in Brussels and Toronto as it’s proved in Cairo and Jalalabad. In the first ever poll of Irish Muslims, 37 percent said they would like Ireland to be governed by Islamic law. When the same question was put to young Irish Muslims, it was 57 percent. In other words, the hope’n’change generation are less Westernized than their parents. Thirty-six percent of young British Muslims think the penalty for apostasy — i.e., leaving Islam — should be death. Had you asked the same question of British Muslims in 1970, I doubt the enthusiasts would have cracked double figures.

Unlike the dopes droning the halfwit slogans at the Obama rallies, these guys mean it. The children are our future. That’s the problem.

Taliban Open Wounds of Injured Warriors

Yes, I'm still on vacation. I know, it's a tough life being in academia but what are you gonna do?

Anyway, I have a few minutes free and Debbie from Right Truth sent me this article in the Pakistani Daily Times. The author was watching a Taliban propaganda video. Apparently she had become numb to the images of beheaded civilians and attacks on NATO bases. Having spent hundreds of hours watching the same videos, I get that.

No, what really bothered her were images of wounded warriors here in the US being used by the Taliban for their own propaganda. And you know what, she's right. First, they try to kill these young men. And when they fail at that, they use them in other ways. It's one thing to suffer injury in the service of your country, it's quite another when those wounds are used by your enemies for their own purposes.

If the powers-that-be won't take action against enemy propagandists for the million reasons I've given in the past, won't they at least take action to protect the identities and integrity of those who have already given so much?

'Ancient Creature' Washes Up On Kuwaiti Beach

From The Arab Times:

Man from 'yore' shocks people: Some people relaxing inside their chalets at Subiyya were frightened by the presence of a person with long hair, as he reportedly emerged from the water naked, murmuring and singing in a language they could not comprehend while dancing, reports Al-Watan Arabic daily.

Out of the belief that the man could be an 'ancient creature', they called the police, as others took pictures of him.

Upon arrival, police arrested and detained the man at the area police station. Preliminary investigation revealed that the man comes from an Asian country. A case has since been registered for thorough investigation.

Below the fold, more amusing crime reports from Kuwait.

‘Strange incident’: In a very strange incident a Kuwaiti academician who is known for his radical views allegedly locked himself in the outer bathroom of the US Embassy in an attempt to put pressure on the embassy staff to allow him to meet the Ambassador, reports Al-Anba daily.

A security source said a police force headed by Director of Hawalli Security Directorate Brigadier Ghloum rushed to the spot and it took more than an hour to convince the academician to leave. He was then referred to the State Security police for interrogation.

The daily gave no other details.

Police also stated they think the jinn may be responsible for the man's strange behavior. In America, we call them "#Occupiers."

Sheikha Furaiha lamented that cases related to sexual solicitation, assault and rape are increasing to such an extent that it will lead to a morality crisis for the future generations if appropriate measures are not taken to prevent or curb this phenomenon. [...]

She insisted on implementation of background check on expatriate workers who enter the country without a good conduct certificate, adding that the violations could be from labor offices that are importing laborers from other countries without checking the background.

Yes, they should instead be doing good, moral, Islamic things, like beheading infidels, hanging gays, and flogging unveiled women...

Lover ‘faints’ as Husband home early finds his wife in strangers arms: An Arab man who returned home unexpectedly was shocked on seeing his wife in the arms of her lover. Irate, he threatened both of them with a knife and sources say the lover got so scared that he fainted, reports Al-Rai daily.

The husband then called the Operations Room following which police and paramedics rushed the lover to Mubarak Al-Kabeer Hospital.

The wife denied any wrongdoing and claimed that somebody knocked at the door and she opened, thinking it must be a vendor and added that the man attempted to rape her. All three of them were referred to public prosecution.

The old 'playing possum' trick!

Raids net over 100 Males, females, gays ‘fun-seekers’: About 130 male and female youths and 40 drunken people were arrested and 14 others referred for deportation during a security campaign officers from the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) organized, under the supervision of Assistant Undersecretary for Security Affairs Major General Sheikh Ahmad Al-Khalifa.

Security sources confirmed the weekend raid across the country was based on the instructions of Sheikh Al-Khalifa.

Among the 130 people arrested in suspicious apartments were 65 females, 78 males, 4 gays and 2 transvestites.

Anuses For Allah

(Hat Tip: Don Laird via 0000 [and Pizza the Hut in comments])

When the forbidden becomes permissible.

Others inquired further by asking for formal fatwas. Citing his desire for "martyrdom and the virgins of paradise," one jihadi, (possibly al-Asiri himself) asked another sheikh, "Is it permissible for me to let one of the jihadi brothers sodomize me to widen my anus if the intention is good?"

After praising Allah, the sheikh's fatwa began by declaring that sodomy is forbidden in Islam,

However, jihad comes first, for it is the pinnacle of Islam, and if the pinnacle of Islam can only be achieved through sodomy, then there is no wrong in it. For the overarching rule of [Islamic] jurisprudence asserts that "necessity makes permissible the prohibited." And if obligatory matters can only be achieved by performing the prohibited, then it becomes obligatory to perform the prohibited, and there is no greater duty than jihad. After he sodomizes you, you must ask Allah for forgiveness and praise him all the more. And know that Allah will reward the jihadis on the Day of Resurrection, according to their intentions—and your intention, Allah willing, is for the victory of Islam, and we ask that Allah accept it of you.

Two important and complementary points emerge from this view: 1) that jihad is the "pinnacle" of Islam—for it makes Islam supreme (based on a hadith, the formerly oral history of the life of Muhammad); and 2) that "necessity makes permissible the prohibited." These axioms are not limited to modern day fatwas, but in fact, were crystallized centuries and ago agreed to by the ulema [Islam's leading religious scholars]. The result is that—because making Islam supreme through jihad is the greatest priority—anything and everything that is otherwise banned becomes permissible. All that comes to matter is one's intention, or niyya.

From here one may understand the many ostensible incongruities of Islamic history: lying is forbidden—but permissible to empower Islam; intentionally killing women and children is forbidden—but permissible when performed during holy war, or jihad; suicide is forbidden—but also permissible during jihad, only then called "martyrdom."

Greyrooster just emailed. He wants the Jihadi brother's phone number. Sorry, Rooster, I don't have it. Try the bulletin board at your mosque.

Feminist Journalist Charged With Hate Crime For Trying To Help A Muslim Woman

Bwahahahaha! A liberal undone by liberalism.

From the Daily Mail via Breitbart:

She was waiting to pay at the checkout when she noticed a man with two small children also queuing. They were joined by a woman wearing a hijab and a long black tunic who began unloading an overflowing trolley, one item at a time.

She says: 'I glanced over and thought, “This poor woman's going to be there for hours.” Her husband was standing closest to me, so I said to him, “Will you help her?”

'He said, “I've got the children.” I said, “Well, I can help her” and he replied, “What's it to you?” I said, “This is what feminism's about - women helping women.”

He said, “Oh, get lost.” I looked at the woman and said, “We live in a society in Britain where rights are equal - if you need help you can ask for it.” ' [...]

The couple became infuriated. 'The husband came up behind me and said in my ear, “You f*** off,” which I found very intimidating,' Miss Heathcote-Drury says. 'I wanted to get out of the shop as quickly as possible, but he approached me again.'

She called for a security guard and when one arrived, he began speaking to the man. Meanwhile, Miss Heathcote-Drury, who had paid for her shopping, was making her escape down the aisle when she claims she felt a sharp pain in her left shin and stumbled.

'The woman was standing with her hand on her hip and smirking. She wanted to humiliate me. Then she hit me on the left cheek.'

Read the rest.

Photographer and feminist Cinnamon Heathcote-Drury was ultimately charged with a hate crime, even though she was the one attacked. The politically correct, multiculturally-sensitive police officers took the Muslim couples accusations as fact, without ever hearing Heathcote-Drury's side of the story.

But I'm not sympathetic. As Warner Todd Houston at Breitbart says:

Her liberal ideology is responsible for giving this Muslim couple no reason at all to adopt her cultural ways. So, why should this Muslim man help his wife, anyway? His culture doesn't allow for that, and this journalist's culture is telling him that his culture is a-okay.

The fact that the Muslim couple then used the weakness in the journalist's own culture to attack her by perverting her so-called "hate crime" laws -- well, that is just too funny.

Liberals made this multicultural, PC bed. Now let them sleep in it.

Obama Administration Sucks Terrorist Ass in Return For Pakistani Help

You know I don't really get why the Haqqani network would not be covered by previous UN and US declarations of the Taliban as foreign terrorist organization?

But then again the Obama administration has not really enforced the designations against the Taliban, even going so far as to approve a Taliban embassy in Qatar.

And last September, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said U.S. officials were "in the final formal review" for designating the entire Haqqani network as a terrorist organization. So what is taking so long?

In a word: Pakistan.

"If you designate the Haqqani network an FTO, then there would be significant pressure placed on the United States and the international community to designate Pakistan a state sponsor of terrorism," Rick "Ozzie" Nelson of the Center for Strategic and International Studies told Security Clearance. "It would be hard to avoid going down that road."

But Pakistan is a state sponsor of terrorism, both domestically and outside Pakistan. Has been for many years. Islamists everywhere cite Pakistian's nuclear arms as a critical deterrent in providing a base of operations for the Islamization of THE WORLD!

I'd rather drive half the army across Russia and Europe than see America suck off Pakistan for a route to the sea. But Obama seems OK with it.

What a effing pussy or an Islamist... you decide.

Millions Thousands Hundreds Tens Of Muslims Protest Abuse Of Women In Afghanistan

Talk about a "tiny minority"! I guess 50 out of 1.2 billion is better than none...

From FNC:

Dozens of men and women took to the streets of Kabul on Wednesday to protest the recent public slaying of an Afghan woman accused of adultery whose gruesome, execution-style killing was captured on video. [...]

The crowd of about 50 demonstrators carried large white sheets that said "International community: Where is the protection and justice for Afghan women?" They marched from the Afghan Ministry of Women's Affairs to a traffic circle near a U.N. compound, and some shouted: "Death to those who did this act!"

In case you're wondering, 50 out of 1.2 billion is 0.00000416%. Meanwhile, in polls, 13% of Western Muslims support terrorism, at least some of the time, to protect Islam's reputation. That percentage sky-rockets to as much as 78% in Islamic countries. As for Sharia Law - the very rule that legalizes abusing, subjugating, and killing women - polls have shown the percentages vary from 40% in Western societies to as much as 82% in Islamic countries.

Isn't it ironic that regions with the religion that claims to be the most peaceful, the most tolerant, and the most respectful of women are the most dangerous places for a woman to live? And yet feminist groups like Code Pink and N.O.W. only protest abuses in Western civilizations.

Sandcrawler PSA: Otis is Super Valuable!

Otis is an opossum that hangs at my place.

Yahoo:

Opossums may someday provide an antidote to nearly all forms of poison, including everything from snakebites to ricin.

effingpossum.JPG

The Journal of Venomous Animals and Toxins has found that the American opossum produces a protein known as Lethal Toxin-Neutralizing Factor (LTNF). And as the Boing Boing blog points out, the LTNF protein is exactly what it sounds like, seeking out otherwise lethal poisons that have entered an opossum's body and neutralizing them.

Amazingly, tests on the opossum LTNF found that the protein even left the marsupial creatures immune to poisons from snakes on other continents that the American opossum had not been previously exposed to.

Jon Voight Defends Brad Pitt's Mother From Vicious Leftist Attacks

Brad Pitt, an Obama supporter, has been silent on the verbal attacks and death threats against his mother since she voiced her support of Mitt Romney.

Jon Voight decided to do what Jane Pitt's son should have done:

Last week, Brad Pitt’s mother Jane Pitt hit headlines after penning a response letter-to-the-editor of her local newspaper, Missouri’s Springfield News Leader, in which she advocated support for Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, referring to him as a “a family man with high morals, business experience, who is against abortion, and shares Christian conviction concerning homosexuality.” [...]

However, it seems the backlash surrounding Jane’s opinion has become so vehement that she has reportedly been “scared into silence.”

According to WND, Mrs. Pitt has not only been the victim of vulgar and hate-filled attacks, but she has also received death threats which have left her very frightened. [...]

But Mrs. Pitt has at least one high-profile supporter on her daughter-in-law's side of the family: Jolie's dad Jon Voight!

“Good for her,” Voight told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column, adding that he agrees with the points-of-view expressed by Jane.

Good for Jon! I've always enjoyed his work. And I own his old LeBaron convertible. ;)

Prominent Muslim Clerics Call On Egypt To Destroy The Great Pyramids

(Hat Tip: Gateway Pundit)

That didn't take long.

According to several reports in the Arabic media, prominent Muslim clerics have begun to call for the demolition of Egypt's Great Pyramids--or, in the words of Saudi Sheikh Ali bin Said al-Rabi'i, those "symbols of paganism," which Egypt's Salafi party has long planned to cover with wax. Most recently, Bahrain's "Sheikh of Sunni Sheikhs" and President of National Unity, Abd al-Latif al-Mahmoud, called on Egypt's new president, Muhammad Morsi, to "destroy the Pyramids and accomplish what the Sahabi Amr bin al-As could not."

This is a reference to the Muslim Prophet Muhammad's companion, Amr bin al-As and his Arabian tribesmen, who invaded and conquered Egypt circa 641. Under al-As and subsequent Muslim rule, many Egyptian antiquities were destroyed as relics of infidelity. While most Western academics argue otherwise, according to early Muslim writers, the great Library of Alexandria itself--deemed a repository of pagan knowledge contradicting the Koran--was destroyed under bin al-As's reign and in compliance with Caliph Omar's command.

However, while book-burning was an easy activity in the 7th century, destroying the mountain-like pyramids and their guardian Sphinx was not--even if Egypt's Medieval Mamluk rulers "de-nosed" the latter during target practice (though popular legend still attributes it to a Westerner, Napoleon).

Now, however, as Bahrain's "Sheikh of Sheikhs" observes, and thanks to modern technology, the pyramids can be destroyed. The only question left is whether the Muslim Brotherhood president of Egypt is "pious" enough--if he is willing to complete the Islamization process that started under the hands of Egypt's first Islamic conqueror.

Nor is such a course of action implausible. History is laden with examples of Muslims destroying their own pre-Islamic heritage--starting with Islam's prophet Muhammad himself, who destroyed Arabia's Ka'ba temple, transforming it into a mosque.

Islamists want to destroy anything that displays the greatness of non-Islamic societies. They destroy ancient statues, historical buildings & churches, relics - any beauty created by non-Muslims. They want to re-write history, first by eliminating all evidence of other pre-Islamic civilizations and then by fraudulently attributing all advances throughout history to Islamic innovations that never existed.

It is very sad to think, if we continue this path of appeasement, future generations will be denied the true cultural history of our world.

Remember - the entire foundation of Islam was designed by Muhammad to commit the genocide of every non-Islam culture. Genocide is not only defined as killing certain groups of people, but also suffocating cultures to the point they decline rather than expand. From Wikipedia:

a legal definition is found in the 1948 United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (CPPCG). Article 2 of this convention defines genocide as "any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such: killing members of the group; causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life, calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; [and] forcibly transferring children of the group to another group."

The Pact of Umar shows several examples. It limits non-Muslim societies living under Islamic rule to the point they can only decrease in population - limits in the number of offspring, bans on new church construction or repairs of old, severe penalties for encouraging Muslims to convert while Muslims may convert Christians without interference, etc.

Then there's Sharia. Muslim males are allowed to marry any woman, yet Muslim females are not allowed to marry any other than a Muslim man. Under Sharia Law, the children are always the religion of their father. Apostates face execution if they decide to convert from Islam, but followers of other faiths face no penalty for converting to Islam. Child marriages ensure young girls are under a Muslim male's control during all her child bearing years.

Under Sharia, slander is also a crime punishable by death. But slander in Islam is not the same as slander in the West. We think of slander as being an untruth which maliciously harms the reputation of a person. Slander in Islam is anything negative about Islam, Muhammad, or the Quran, whether its true or not.

Create a perpetual flow of positive propaganda, eliminate all criticism, destroy all evidence of non-Islamic successes, systematically kill any one who questions or has opposing views, then you have a recipe for genocide.

Certainly, not all Muslims have these views or support my assertion. But the fact is, these things are all at the core of Islam.

Obamanomics Outsourced: Our Offshoring President

The Obama campaign has been constantly on the attack mode regarding Romney's so called "offshoring" of jobs while he was running Bain Capital.

... So President Obama, head of an administration that paid foreign companies almost $29 billion for services like food, gas, and space travel last year is attacking Romney for “offshoring…” when FactCheck.org declared, ” we found no evidence to support the claim that Romney — while he was still running Bain Capital — shipped American jobs overseas.”

So, just to clarify on the amount of business contracts each candidate has sent to foreign and overseas companies:

President Obama: Almost $29 billion.

Mitt Romney: $0.

Obama Administration to Subvert Second Amendment by Treaty

Dick was on Hannity last night. I admit I don't watch much Tee Vee but I think he made two important points. One that Obama's proposal to go back to Clinton administration taxes is false. Clinton cut capital gains taxes while Obama's proposal raises them higher than they were under the Clinton Administration.

The other point is about the US entering a UN treaty on small arms.

Dick Morris:

On July 27th, the nations of the world are scheduled to meet in New York to sign a global Arms Trade Treaty (ATT). Disguised as a way to prevent the proliferation of small arms throughout the world, it is, in fact, a backdoor way to legislate gun control in the United States and effectively repeal our Second Amendment.

The ATT will set up a global body which will require all nations to regulate firearms so that they can prevent their exportation to other countries. Inevitably, this will require countries to inventory the guns in private hands and to register them. A gun ban is not far away.

The ATT, under the Supremacy Clause of the US Constitution, would have the power of a constitutional amendment and would, effectively, repeal the Second Amendment guaranteeing us the right to bear arms. We must fight to stop the US from signing the treaty and, if we fail, block Senate ratification.

Please sign the petition and include your name and address so we can send it to your Congressman and Senators.

Click Here to sign the petition to stop the US from signing the Arms Trade Treaty!

UK: Husband & His Family Killed Pregnant Wife...
Believing She Was Possessed By Jinn

www.west-midlands.police.uk screen capture 2012-7-9-18-47-40.jpg
Image: Midlands Police

Probably an arranged marriage:

A HUSBAND and his family have been found guilty of murdering a pregnant young wife at her Birmingham home, in the belief that she had been possessed by Jinn spirits.

Naila Mumtaz died in hospital on 8 July 2009, after being found collapsed at her home in Craythorne Avenue. Paramedics were called to the address by family members, however the 21-year-old could not be saved and she was pronounced dead a short time later.

Naila, who was six-months pregnant at the time of her death, died as a result of smothering, according to a post mortem examination, and the trial heard that members of her husband’s family had deliberately caused her death.

The court heard how Naila’s husband, father-in-law, mother-in-law, and her sister-in-law’s husband believed that the young woman, who had arrived in Birmingham some two years earlier from Pakistan, had been possessed by Jinn spirits.

Disgusting.

Stalkercrat: Democrat Hiding In Bushes, Taking Videos of GOP & Posting Online

Now, this is creepy

I’m not joking about it either. Ohio Rep. Jim Renacci (R) told Politico that a neighbor had caught somebody doing precisely that, and I’m pretty sure Politico believes him: they have collected some really, really creepy videos (including one targeting Renacci) of what is apparently an organized effort to sit outside candidate/legislator houses and businesses and… film them. In many cases, going for a 360 degree shot that shows the entire exterior – and if you haven’t already gotten a certain wariness from this new wrinkle in the political process, then really, that last bit should be setting off alarm bells. There’s a point where this sort of thing becomes ‘casing’ a place; looking for weak points in building security qualifies.[More...]
This is happening with the full support of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee
They[Democrats] say showcasing the homes — most of which are spacious and neatly maintained[Politico apparently needed to add that comment] — underscores what will be a key avenue of attack for the party this fall: communicating that Republicans just can’t relate to economically struggling voters.

“House Republicans have spent this entire Congress trying to hide that they’re protecting benefits for millionaires and perks for themselves instead of protecting the middle class, but we won’t let them keep it secret any longer,” Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee spokesman Jesse Ferguson wrote in an email.[More..]

Good News! Iran Elected to Top U.N. Arms Trade Treaty Post

Via UN Watch

GENEVA, July 8 - Iran was elected to a top post on the UN Arms Trade Treaty conference, revealed UN Watch today in an exclusive report. The Geneva-based human rights group is calling on UN chief Ban Ki-moon, who addressed the conference on the same day, to condemn the selection of the Tehran regime.

Although the U.N. conference website and summary fail to name the 15 members elected to the bureau on July 3rd, UN Watch has discovered that the countries elected to the five regional groups include Iran, Japan, and South Korea for the Asian group; Kenya, Egypt and Nigeria for Africa; Azerbaijan, Belarus, and Ukraine for Eastern Europe; Australia, Netherlands and Switzerland for the Western Europe & Others Group; and Mexico and two others for Latin America. ( See U.N. webcast here, announcing election of Iran at minute 4:45.)

The United Nations Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty, which opened last week and runs until July 27, promises to deliver a new agreement to regulate the transfer of arms.[More...]

London: Suspected Al Qaeda Terrorist Caught At Olympic Park

Via Telegraph

A suspected terrorist who MI5 believe is a would-be suicide bomber was found repeatedly near the Olympic Games venue.

The alleged al-Qaeda militant was caught crossing through the Olympic Park five times, breaking a ban imposed by the Home Secretary, The Sunday Telegraph has learned.

The 24 year-old has previously tried to get to Afghanistan, allegedly for terrorist training, and is suspected of fighting for the Somali Islamist group al Shabaab, which has been responsible for thousands of deaths, including those of Western aid workers. He is accused of trying to recruit other Britons to its cause.

A Home Office lawyer warned after his discovery in the Olympic area that the man - known as CF - wanted to “re-engage in terrorism-related activities, either in the UK or Somalia” and is “determined to continue to adhere to his Islamist extremist agenda”.

His detention is the most serious security alert yet to hit the Olympic Park.

One wonders, how many more are out there.

Brett Kimberlin to ABC News Arletta Saenz: I Have No Online Presence
Brett Kimberlin To Judge Rupp: I Run Nonprofits, I Use The Internet Everyday

Update on my previews post regarding convicted domestic terrorist Brett kimberlin vs Aaron Walker and Kimberlins online presence

At this time Arlette Saenz of ABC News hasn't answered my tweets about my previous post regarding Kimbelin's statement to her that he has no online presence yet he tells judges he uses the net everyday.

Just trying to get to the truth out there, that's all. He has perjured himself in the courts before so...

Ask here @ArlettaSaenz if you so choose and link to to my previous post.

I want media, any media, to ask him why he lied to Arlette Saenz at ABC News.

I just want answers why "Team Kimberlin" want to shut people up.

Brett Kimberlin: "I Don't Maintain Any Online Presence Except When I Use The Internet Everyday" ...

Aaron Walker (aka Worthing) is transcribing the audio from Thursday's hearing, Kimberlin vs Walker, in which Walker OWND Kimberlin.

This part stuck out to me about his use of the internet:

K[Kimberlin] (continued): He’s saying, oh, I should turn off my Google alert, I should turn off my computer, if I don’t want to get that information. That’s like saying if you get threatening calls you should turn off your phone, or if you get threatening letters in the mail, that you shut down your mail service. That’s not, you can’t do that in your day and age. I run non-profits, I use the internet every day, I cannot turn these things off. He can turn them off. I can’t. And that’s the point. I want him to turn it off.
I knew I had read this before from him about his use of the internet.

I did, via Patterico:

Brett Kimberlin to ABC News:
Kimberlin denied he was responsible for the post, even saying that he does not maintain any online presence and said he and his family have been victims of threats themselves and accused the bloggers of constructing a “false narrative” about him.

“I don’t blog, I don’t comment, I don’t tweet on any blogs at all. This is a right-wing attack on me and my organizations and it’s a smear job. It’s a swift boat action against us,” Kimberlin said. “What they’re doing is an obstruction of justice and it’s defamatory. We’re cooperating with the authorities in this matter. They have engaged in a massive smear campaign against us that has resulted in death threats to me and my family and to others associated with us.”

This is the second time he has been caught in a lie he told ABC News. [Update: Just to make matters clear, the conversation he had with Arlette Saenz at ABC involved SWATtings, no one accused Kimberlin of the SWATtings yet he stated to ABC News he maintained no online presence]

Yeah, the bigot/racist, convicted dope dealer/perjurer/Speedway Bomber/domestic terrorist turned left wing political activist doesn't maintain online presence only when he maintains online presence everyday.

Aaron reminds everyone do not contact, harass, email, etc Team Kimberlin, or their families, etc. The screencaps, emails, etc will be used for more lawfare. Besides, why turn yourself into those that disgust you as much as this group does They don't deserve to be threatened either is what I am getting at. First Amendment rights are for all citizens of this beautiful country, and eventually Team Kimberlin will understand that...eventually.[ Even their "apparent" astroturfed comments have failed.]

By posting about "Team Kimberlin" I am not threatening anyone, just linking to the facts. I wasn't asked to post this by Walker nor has anyone else "asked me" to post anything about "Team Kimberlin.

Obama's "Sharia Czar" Mohamed Magid Gives Award To Jew Hater Dawud Walid

Via Patrick Poole

Mohamed Magid is the Obama administration’s go-to guy for Muslim outreach and advise on international affairs and counterterrorism. He is a regular visitor to the White House (even when the administration wants to conceal it), attends important administration speeches on the US Middle East policy at the State Department, he counsels the Department of Justice to criminalize defamation of Islam, he entertains the deputy national security adviser at his DC-area mosque, and he serves on the Department of Homeland Security’s Countering Violent Extremism Working Group. He also advises the FBI and many other federal agencies.

He has also been profiled by Time Magazine and the Huffington Post has even dubbed him “America’s Imam“. His ubiquitous presence across the Obama administration undoubtedly makes him the most influential and sought after Muslim authority in the country.

Imam Magid also serves as the president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). In that capacity last weekend he presided over ISNA’s “ Diversity Forum” held in Dearborn (where Muslim residents were recently video recorded stoning Christian protestors).

One of the speakers at the ISNA Diversity Forum was CAIR-Michigan executive director Dawud Walid. Imam Magid even gave a “diversity award” to Walid, as seen in the photo below:

[Continue reading]

Hmmm, remember ISNA was conducting classes at Ft. Hood on Islam to troops about to deploy to Afghanistan?

ISNA are unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation terror trial. They were established here in 1980 by American members of the Muslim Brotherhood. I could go on and on.

Iraq: Suicide Bomber Kills 7 Of Own Family

Because they were pro- government

The bomber entered the home of his cousin, the local Sahwa leader, on Friday night as the extended family was gathered for a meal, said a police official in Ramadi, the capital of Anbar province, 115 kilometres west of Baghdad.

He approached the militiaman and detonated his explosives, killing his target as well as his wife, three of their teenage children, his brother and another relative, said the official.

Taliban Mujahidiot Publicly Execute Woman Near Kabul (video added)

Her crime? Adultery

How did the charge of adultery come to be? The Taliban mujahidiot who killed her and another Taliban mujahidiot were both involved with her. This was their way of handling the dispute:

Salangi said two Taliban commanders were sexually involved with the woman in Parwan, either through rape or romantically, and decided to torture her and then kill her to settle a dispute between the two of them.

"They are outlaws, murderers, and like savages they killed the woman," he said, adding that the Taliban exerted considerable sway in his province.

Earlier this week a 30-year-old woman and two of her children were beheaded in eastern Afghanistan by a man police said was her divorced husband, the latest of a string of so-called "honour killings".

Cowardly bastages, all of them. They need to be taken out and castrated, chop chop.

Anti-Terror Police Arrest Seventh Person In London Probe

Update on DMartyr's post from Thursday.

Via BBC

A 22-year-old woman has been arrested in east London in connection with an ongoing counter-terrorism operation, the Metropolitan Police has said.

Officers arrested the woman at a property in Hackney during the early hours of Saturday morning, it added.

She is being held on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism.

Police have been given until 12 July to detain six people arrested on Thursday as part of the same investigation.

This is the second female arrested. On Thursday, five men and one woman were arrested. You can read more about these arrests at the forum

Update: As I noted on DMartyr's post, one of those arrested on Thursday was Muslim convert Richard Dart (aka Salahuddin Al Britani). Here is a video featuring him from our favorite OWND group " Muslims Against Crusades". The group planned, but failed, to interrupt the Royal Wedding:

On the 29th April 2011 the world will witness the royal Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

But it is not enjoyment time for the Muslims Against Crusaders, who plan to Disrupt the wedding to highlight the atrocities committed in Muslim lands which is supported by the royal family including the so called Queen, Prince William and Prince Harry etc.

Hence, in this video clip Salahuddin Al Britani aka Richard Dart, who recently appeared in the BBC3 show "My brother the Islamist" will be highlighting some of the reasons behind the disruption of the royal wedding.

Kenya: Arrested Iranian Agents 30-Bomb Plot

They planned on using one hell of a lot of BOOM, 15 kilos of RDX worth.

They scoped out multiple targets:

The pair made notes during drive-by surveillance in the Kenyan capital but did not take photographs for fear of raising suspicions, police said[...]

Ahmad Abolfathi Mohammad and Sayed Mansour Mousavi were arrested after Kenyan police linked them to a package containing explosives delivered to a warehouse near Mombasa, Kenya's main coast city.

The pair planned to detonate up to 30 bombs targeting British, US, Israeli and Saudi Arabian interests, including tourist facilities and commercial and government buildings, investigators believe.[...]

"They were driving around Nairobi, they went past the British High Commission, they went past the [Nairobi Hebrew Congregation] synagogue in town, they went to the Israeli embassy. It is very clear that they were casing these places, that they were up to no good. From what we saw, their intention was clear to plan and execute terrorism attacks."

In other Iranian terror news, this one a bit closer to home, there are Iranian Missile Sites in Venezuela.

Jordanian MP Pulls a Gun On His Critic During Live TV Debate

Lively debate! Shoes thrown, accusations of being a Mossad agent and ends with a gun being drawn.

Jordanian member of parliament pulled a gun on a political activist during a furious debate live on Jordanian TV on Friday.

The MP, named in a YouTube clip of the confrontation as Mohammed Shawabka, was debating a political activist named in the clip as Mansour Sayf al-Din Murad, discussing aspects of Jordanian politics including attitudes surrounding the uprising in Syria.

As the discussion became more heated, each of the men accused the other of various crimes and deviancies, including working for the Israeli Mossad intelligence agency. “You’re a Mossad agent,” said one. “You’re a big crook,” said the other.

The video description explains a bit more about "deviancies".
One is calling the other a syrian spy, who reciprocates by calling him "a mossad spy" when the guy on the left curses the other guy's mom, the later throw a shoe at him, and then pulls up a gun.
Thanks for the link Anna, I needed that.

ISLAMABAD — A pair of missiles fired by a U.S. drone killed at least nine suspected militants near the Afghan border on Friday, Pakistani intelligence officials said.

Several insurgents were also wounded in the attack that destroyed a compound near Miran Shah, the main town of the North Waziristan tribal region, the two officials said. The militants were believed to be fighters loyal to Hafiz Gul Bahadur, a militant commander whose forces frequently target U.S. and NATO forces in neighboring Afghanistan. A similar drone attack on Sunday killed eight of Bahadur’s fighters

Egyptian Copts Declare Creation of Christian Brotherhood

To counter influence of the Muslim Brotherhood

Good on them

A group of Coptic activists in Egypt announced the establishment of the Christian Brotherhood to counter the growing influence of the Muslim Brotherhood, Al-Arabiya news reported.[...]

The new group, Fahmi pointed out, is not meant to compete with Muslims but with the rise of political Islam.

“Muslims are something and Islamists are something else and it is not true that we wanted to a Copt to take part in presidential elections,” he said.

“With Mohammed Mursi’s victory, we felt that Egypt is about to turn into a religious state so we decided to create the group as a means of peaceful resistance against Islamist powers,” said Amir Ayad who was quoted by an Egyptian daily.

BTW, Juan Cole thinks Morsi, is just like Thomas Jefferson:
Mohamed Morsi: [in the 1920’s, the Egyptians] said: “The constitution is our Koran.”

They wanted to show that the constitution is a great thing. But Imam [Hassan] Al-Banna, Allah’s mercy upon him, said to them: “No, the Koran is our constitution.”

The Koran was and will continue to be our constitution.

The Koran will continue to be our constitution.

Mohamed Morsi: The Koran is our constitution.

TSA Agent Forgets To Plug In Metal Detector

The TSA supervisors knew something was wrong when no one had been groped patted down after several hours.

From New York Post via JihadWatch:

The TSA’s bungling reached a new low yesterday when a JFK Airport terminal had to be evacuated and hundreds of passengers marched back through security screening all because one dimwitted agent failed to realize his metal detector had been unplugged, sources told The Post.

The stunning error led to hours of delays, two planes called back from the runway and infinite frustration for furious passengers. [...]

The chaos at Terminal 7 was caused by screener Alija Abdul Majed, who had manned Lane No. 1 during the morning shift with no idea his metal detector had no juice, sources said.

UK: Seven Men Arrested in Anti-Terror Raids

Add seven more to the eight DMartyr posted on yesterday

BBC

Seven men have been arrested by police in anti-terror raids after weapons were found hidden in a car, police say.

Six men from the West Midlands and one from West Yorkshire were detained over three days, West Midlands Police said.

They said the car was stopped on the M1 in South Yorkshire on Saturday - a search later found firearms, offensive weapons and other material inside[...]

Three men aged 23, 26 and 27 from Sparkhill, Birmingham, were arrested on Tuesday morning.

A 22-year-old from Alum Rock, Birmingham, a 24-year-old from Moseley and a 22-year-old from Smethwick, West Midlands, were arrested on Wednesday evening.

A 43-year old man from Kirklees, West Yorkshire, was arrested on Thursday.

I wonder if any of those arrested were on benefits.

Update: Interesting article at The Spectator regarding these arrests:

Prevent strategy still needs political will

West Midlands Police have just announced seven arrests as part of an investigation into alleged terrorist activity. This follows the detention of six individuals on similar charges across London yesterday. Together, they reveal just how active the Islamist network in the UK remains and the potency of its ongoing threat.

One of those arrested in London yesterday, a convert, Richard Dart (also known as Salahuddin al-Britani) first came to prominence last year when his step-brother featured him in a documentary called ‘My brother the Islamist’. It offered a rare observational view on the inability of one family to comprehend the militancy and millenarianism of their son[...]

Cameron made it clear in Munich that he regards Islamist extremism tout court as the problem, and not just violent extremism. Labour had previously concerned itself with only the latter formulation, while some Whitehall mandarins are known to have pushed back vociferously against Cameron’s desire to broaden the counter-terrorism remit.

Money quotes:
Recalibrating the theory behind Prevent has been an uphill battle for Cameron. Too many reputations across Whitehall are staked on its success and mandarins have been reluctant to admit its shortcomings. That fight may have been won, but not enough of its outgrow has yet been translated into active policy on the ground.

The corollary is that – just as it was under Labour – extremists are free to continue their activities with relative impunity until someone strays into committing offences that attract police attention. Cameron committed himself to changing that and to intervening much further upstream. He now needs *someone in government willing to take it up and see it through.

*Reminds you of someone/something? Work place violence at Ft Hood come to mind? Or, Overseas Contingency Operation. How about man-caused disasters? Islamists?

#OccupySeattle: "Money Is The New Tea!"

Um... okaay.

#Occutards scramble to collect money thrown out a high building by other #Occutards to prove only greedy corporations exploit people for money... No wait, it was to show how easily donated money can be tossed away to unworthy causes... No... Hell, I don't know what the point was.

They did it. And much like the rest of the #Occupy movement, they have no clue what it protested.

Here's some advice for the #Occutards:

Below the fold, must (not) see video - 19 minutes of a few fluttering dollar bills an #Occutard thought was important enough to post at youtube. I felt sorry for him, so I linked it..

Six Seven Eight Terrorists Arrested In UK (Updated)

Members of the Religion of Peace™? No way!!11!!

I'm shocked, SHOCKED, I tell ya!

From AP:

A total of six people were arrested there and in separate raids in other parts of the capital, but Scotland Yard said the operation was not linked to the upcoming games, due to kick off on July 27.

Police didn't identify the suspects, who range in age from 18 to 30.

However Mizanur Rahman, who is involved with a Muslim activist group, said all those arrested were British Muslims. He said the three men taken into custody in Stratford, the neighborhood that contains Olympic Park, were brothers and claimed that one was a former police support officer.

Scotland Yard declined to comment on the claim.

Update II: (Un)Related, it hasn't been a good summer for Islamic terrorists (H/T: Anna in comments)...

From The Telegraph:

Minh Quang Pham, 29, is said to have sworn an oath of allegiance to al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsular (AQAP) after leaving Britain to join the terrorist group in December 2010. [...]

He is said to have “facilitated communications and provided expert advice and assistance in photography and graphic design” for AQAP’s media wing.

He allegedly met two American citizens, referred to only as “American CC-1” and “American CC-2”, working with the former to produce online propaganda for AQAP.

At the time Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan, both of whom were US citizens, were running the propaganda operation for AQAP which included the notorious on-line magazine called “Inspire.”

Update III: Going for the Hat Trick, another Islamic terrorist arrested, though this one in France, not the UK. This one appears to be a major enabler. Hat tip to Howie.

Expect updates on both all three stories.

Update IV by SH: The Telegraph's story on Samir Khan's assistant Pham aka "Amin" is way behind. I posted on it on the 29th of last month

Your welcome

Update V by SH More on the London arrests at the forum Of those arrested, Salahuddin al Britani was one of them, his JihadTube account is here

Personal Security Mandate

Police services cost the American tax-payer billions of dollars per year. Medical and emergency services to help crime victims add to that cost. A simple solution: mandate that all law-abiding citizens purchase weapons to defend themselves and protect their families.

People who refuse add an unnecessary burden on tax-payers and, therefore, should pay a penalty if they choose not to protect themselves.

Plane Hijacking With A Happy Ending

Six Muslims (now, there's a surprise!) attempted to hijack a plane during a Chinese flight. Only four made it out alive.

Two would-be plane hijackers were beaten to death by passengers and crew aboard a flight bound for the regional Chinese capital of Urumqi on Friday, The Global Times reports. The men died in the hospital from the injuries they suffered at the hands of those whom they thought would be their victims.

There were a total of six men involved in the foiled plot to hijack the Tianjin Airlines flight. All of the men were reportedly Uyghurs, a local Muslim ethnic minority.

I love a story with a happy ending. The only thing that could have made it better is if all six hijackers were killed, instead of only two. But this is a start.

Below the fold, a re-enactment of how the passengers may have subdued and, ultimately, beat to death the hijackers.

Actress: Defacing Property For Obama Okay

"Ted" actress, Mila Kunis, says it's okay to vandalize property for the right reason. In her case, the 'right' reason is showing support for Barack Obama:

On expressing her politics through art…

Glamour: Do you fund-raise for Obama?

Mila Kunis: More like street-art-based stuff in Los Angeles that I can’t talk about … because I’m pretty sure it’s illegal.

Glamour: You graffiti?

Mila Kunis: Mm-hmm. I’d rather do that. I don’t need attention for it. What I truly believe in I will do privately.

So, I guess she wouldn't object to a little Romney "street-art" on her own property? No, of course she would. Because like most leftists, she's a hypocrite.

Mila Kunis... SUCKS!

In your face, Mila:

Let Freedom Ring: Aaron Walker Talks About The Day He Was Arrested For Blogging

"But such is the irresistible nature of truth, that all it asks, and all it wants is the liberty of appearing"~Thomas Paine

Aaron's Independence Day post deals with the day he was arrested for blogging about a public figure, Brett Kimberlin A bigot/racist/convicted perjurer/dope dealer/domestic terrorist turned political activist.

Very fitting.

His excellent post is a must read, "Let Freedom Ring"

Aaron's emergency stay ends tomorrow, he returns to court to see if he still can speak, blog about what the Speedway Bomber has done to silence him.

Yes, Let Freedom Ring. First Amendment rights belong to all Americans, not just Team Kimberlin

Previous:

Aaron reminds everyone do not contact, harass, email etc Team Kimberlin. The screencaps, emails, etc will be used for more lawfare. Besides, why turn yourself into those that disgust you as much as this group does They don't deserve to be threatened either is what I am getting at. First Amendment rights are for all citizens of this beautiful country, and eventually Team Kimberlin will understand that...eventually.[ Even their "apparent" astroturfed comments have failed.]

By posting about "Team Kimberlin" I am not threatening anyone, just linking to the facts. I wasn't asked to post this by Walker nor has anyone else "asked me" to post anything about this.

Pakistan: A Man Burned a Koran, Mob Burns Man To Death

mobburnsmanpakistan.jpg
Jawas condemn Pakistani extremism

BBC:

A Pakistani mob has taken a man accused of blasphemy from a police station and burnt him to death, police say.

The man was being held for allegedly burning a copy of the Koran in public. The incident took place on the outskirts of Bahawalpur, in Punjab province.

Witnesses said hundreds of people looked on as he screamed for help.

The police said they were "outnumbered" by the mob. Also, they said the "unknown" man was mentally unstable.
"We were totally outnumbered. There were too many of them and they were hysterical. Eventually, they succeeded in taking him away," said one.

The man was reportedly beaten and dragged to the spot where he is said to have desecrated the Koran.

The mob then poured petrol on him and set him on fire, according to witnesses.

No arrests have been made, yet.

Remember, the Obama administration apologized to this country. Also, Pakistan's army and Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency has been implicated in the 2008 Mumbai attack

Apologize for what?!?

Update: Brett Kimberlin, Convicted Perjurer & Bigot Plus Brandon Darby Announces a Lawsuit Against Neal Rauscher

"The mind of a bigot is like the pupil of the eye; the more light you pour upon it, the more it will contract"~Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.

Did I also mention Brett Kimberlin is also a racist?

I haven't updated on Team Kimberlin in awhile and when I saw Walker's post it made my blood boil. What a worthless piece of excrement this convicted domestic terrorist is. Aaron Walker (aka Worthing) has mentioned his disabilites; dysgraphia, dyslexia, ADD and is a diabetic. Oh, he also takes Lipitor for his cholesterol. Maybe Kimberlin is jealous Walker graduated from Harvard Law School OR thought Walker will fold, cower. Doesn't appear to be happening, Mr Speedway Bomber.

Brett Kimberlin used what Aaron had noted on his blog to tell a judge Walker has "mental problems', he should see a "psychologist", etc etc etc.

Walker has now posted the transcripts that show how this convicted perjurer/domestic terrorist turned political activist acts in front of a judge.

www.scribd.com screen capture 2012-7-3-15-56-59_walker.jpg

Now go read Walker's post: The Story I Couldn't Tell Pt III:The May 22 Hearing and Brett Kimberlin’s Bigotry Towards Me

Also, a development happened today in regards to Team Kimberlin:

Team Kimberlin may have tried to smear the wrong person.

SWATting, accuse the accuser, the Team Kimberlin way

I forgot to add, Aaron goes back to court the day after tomorrow

After you are done enjoying fireworks on the Fourth, on July 5, 2012 we will have a hearing on this peace order with Brett Kimberlin. After all the stay lasts only until the full hearing, so in theory the judge could re-impose all the restrictions Vaughey imposed in the first one.
Re-impose meaning he won't be able to speak Kimberlin's name, blog about him. Nothing! His First Amendment rights were literally taken away from him due to deceiver, bigot, convicted purgerer/domestic terrorist Brett Kimberlin.

Follow Aaron's Twitter feed for more information (plus read link above) for those who are in the area and would like to support Aaron. Some people did show up last time and were a witness to his arrest.

Pakistani Extorts Apology from Obama Administration

WSJ:

Pakistan agreed Tuesday to reopen North Atlantic Treaty Organization supply routes to Afghanistan after U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton apologized for the deaths of two dozen Pakistani troops in a November border clash, apparently ending a seven-month standoff that complicated U.S. war aims.

The U.S. apology was an about-face for the Obama administration, which had refused to say it was sorry for the Nov. 26 incident along the Afghanistan border.

"We are sorry for the losses suffered by the Pakistani military," Mrs. Clinton told Pakistani Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar, according to a statement issued by the State Department. "We are committed to working closely with Pakistan and Afghanistan to prevent this from ever happening again."

Well f*ck me a running.

Official Jawa Report editorial position on the matter is as follows.

Dear Pakistan, Suck it!

You can quote us on that.

Arab Spring! Egyptian Group Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice Authority Murders Muslim for Walking Muslima Home

Egyptian Independent:

Hundreds of citizens in the district of Arbaeen in Suez organized a funeral procession for a student killed by religious extremists on Sunday.

Ahmed Hussein Eid, an engineering student, was reportedly killed by hardline Islamists who refused to let him walk alone with his fiancée because it was a religious taboo.

The procession began at the victim’s house after Eid’s body was brought in an ambulance from Suez Canal University Hospital.

His father, Hussein Eid, refused to accept condolences before his murderers are brought to justice. He said his son was taking his fiancée home when three bearded motorbike riders stopped him and rebuked him for walking alone with his fiancée. He added that Ahmed argued with the three before one of them stabbed him.

A Facebook page for a group calling itself “Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice Authority,” likely modeling itself on Saudi Arabia’s religious police, claimed responsibility for the killing.

Just think how proud President Obama must be of the "progress" since his speech in Egypt. Um yeah.

Texas: ICE Agent Shot, Authorities Search For Leads

Thankfully, the unnamed agent is expected to survive

NEAR HARGILL — A federal agent is expected to survive after being shot early Tuesday morning in eastern Hidalgo County.

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Homeland Security Investigations agent was working along State Highway 186 near Farm-to-Market Road 493, just west of the Hidalgo-Willacy county line, when he was shot in the abdomen about 3:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Treviño, whose agency is assisting the FBI-led investigation into the shooting, said the agent sustained two gunshot wounds. He said his office was providing crime scene investigators and other manpower to assist in the probe.

Details surrounding the gunfire remained unclear late Tuesday morning.[More....]

Sudden Jihad Syndrome In Dearborn, Michigan

A few days ago, Rusty posted this video about a confrontation between Christian protesters and Muslims. The police stood idly by while the Muslim suspects threw bottles and rocks at the peaceful Christian protesters.

Outside the right wing blog-o-sphere, you probably wouldn't have heard or read anything about that incident. But apparently, there was much more that happened that day, which also hasn't been reported by the mainstream media (From Answering Muslims via Gateway Pundit):

one of the Muslims got in his SUV, drove up over the hill, accelerated and came right at us where we were standing. This guy came directly at us and we had to jump out of the way and he came screaming by us. Both of the police cars stopped him, pulled him out and cuffed him and he showed no remorse. The police actually have it on video because both police cars had there dash cameras on, so it’s not like it’s my word against his. Then mosque security came out and said that they knew this guy and that we provoked him and the Dearborn Police officer yelled at the security guard and told him if he didn’t back off he would also be arrested for hindering a police investigation.

US Government: No Evidence Mermaids Exist

Your tax dollars at work:

There is no evidence that mermaids exist, a US government scientific agency has said.

The National Ocean Service made the unusual declaration in response to public inquiries following a TV show on the mythical creatures.

Of course there's no evidence. Like UFOs, Bigfoot & the Loch Ness monster, mermaids are very careful not to appear in areas people are likely to know how to hold a camera steady.

Despite the lack of evidence, scientists still have been unable to explain this bizarre sighting:

Alexandra Pennell Ain't Skeerd!

Remember leftist activist Alexandra Pennell?

Ooopsy!

The day Alexandra Pennell addressed an anti-hate rally at Central Connecticut State University about the anti-gay messages scrawled on her door, police had begun to question her claims.

Twice the video surveillance system placed in Pennell's room to help police identify the person responsible for scrawling the notes had been disabled, in one case just before a note was slid under Pennell's dorm room door.

Police say only after they set up a second camera in a hall closet — a camera that Pennell did not know about — did they learn the truth: Pennell had been writing the notes herself.

The 19-year-old from Trumbull has been thrown out of Central and barred from attending any state university for five years. She also faces eight felony counts of fabricating evidence, eight misdemeanor charges of lying to police, eight misdemeanor counts of filing a false police report and one count of making a false statement to police.

...She continued writing and leaving the notes, she wrote in the letter to Dooley, because of the attention it brought her, especially from Dooley and another friend.

That's an example of what happens when Munchhausen's meets bad gay.

Florida Dem & Close DNC Ally Of Debbie Wasserman Schultz Goes On Anti-Israel Tirade Accuses Jewish State Of Running Mass Concentration Prison Camps...…
(Updated)

Update: The spin begins, Evelyn Garcia[BizPacReview] has resigned from her position at the DNC, but, she will NOT give up her campaign to run for state rep.

She's horrible,” said Dan Liftman, legislative aide to U.S. Rep. Alcee Hastings[aka Corruptocrat], D-Miramar. “She could harm the president and Debbie Wasserman Schultz.”

Though Liftman said he’s known about the emails “for a while,” Palm Beach County Democratic Chairman Mark Alan Siegel told BPR he saw the emails for the first time Monday morning.[Sure Chair Siegel, sure...ed]

More from the Palm Beach Post
...County Democratic Party Chairman Mark Alan Siegel accepted Garcia’s resignation Monday afternoon. He called the emails “grossly inappropriate.”[...]

Garcia, a Haitian-American, was elected to the Democratic National Committee in 2008, after serving as a delegate to the party’s national convention in Denver earlier that year.

She issued a resignation statement Friday afternoon, saying that’s she wrote it “with great sadness and a heavy heart.” She said the private emails had been released “by someone I believed was my friend.”

“In passionately advocating my position supporting the rights of people I felt were being harmed, I used language that I now regret,” she wrote. “The gist of the conversation had to do with my concern for innocent people being oppressed, but such support for the oppressed does not diminish my support for the good people of Israel.”

Nice spin you have there Garcia. One would think she would thank the Jewish State for the aid they gave Haiti after the 2010 devastating earthquake. IDF set up search and rescue operations as well as having the first fully equipped field hospital.

Begin original post...................................

The person who has released these emails should be commended: " When I heard this person was running for office, I felt the public should know about the emails."

garcia_schultz.jpgBizPacReview

Local Democrats are in an uproar about a series of emails about Israel, sent last year by one of their representatives to the Democratic National Committee, and a candidate for state representative.

In the emails, Evelyn Garcia, one of Palm Beach County's representatives to the DNC, a Democratic Executive Committee member, and a candidate for State House, District 88, accuses Israel of "crimes against humanity" and of running "mass concentration prison camps".

The email exchange began with Garcia forwarding an email by Code Pink, "Time for a New Middle East Policy," which announced a conference opposing President Obama's pandering to the, "pro-occupation lobby."

Report: Al Qaeda Trained Mumbai Attackers

Apparently, the attack would have been a lot a lot worse, my gawd.

Had all the 25 militants completed the training and made it to Mumbai the carnage would have been much worse," a senior Indian official told the Deccan Chronicle.
This is an update on my prior post: Key Mumbai Plotter Arrested in Saudi Arabia

Via the LWJ[Image credit also]

Sayed Zabiuddin Ansari, the alleged facilitator of the 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai, has proven to be a "treasure trove of information" for Indian investigators, according to new reports in the Indian press. Ansari has reportedly revealed that al Qaeda was tasked with training the Mumbai attackers in a Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) training camp close to the Pakistan-Iran border.

It is not entirely clear where the camp was located, as Ansari has been unable to pinpoint its location for investigators. But according to at least one article, the LeT camp was inside Afghanistan. LeT terrorists are known to operate in both Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Ansari (a.k.a. Abu Jundal) was captured inside Saudi Arabia and then transferred to Indian custody in June. [See LWJ report, Key Mumbai plotter arrested in Saudi Arabia.]

The Deccan Chronicle reports that Ansari's interrogation reports say he has explained that there is a "great degree of coordination now between Lashkar, Al Qaeda and even the Taliban."

[Continue reading]

You can also add Pakistan's ISI's cooperation to the group as I noted in my prior post and further stated in LWJ's article above.

h/t @CO2HOG

Interestingly, I like to communicate, via Twitter, with terror supporters. He/she/it has this to say about Abu Jundal:

My dua:

May the mujahidiot scream out in pain, continue to sing out like a canary, scream out in pain. Rinse, repeat over and over until they gain all the info he holds. Then spit and p*ss on him.

Fatwa?

Note: the comment I made is mine and mine alone.

Murdock: Scientology 'Creepy' And 'Evil'

That may be true. I don't particularly care for Scientology. But there's something very hypocritical - maybe even itself evil - about calling the cult creepy for allegedly spying on the estranged spouse of a member, when the same criticism about Islam over "honor killings" is deemed racist and Islamophobic.

behead_those_who_insult_cruise.jpg

Can you imagine if any public figure called Islam "creepy" and "evil" after an estranged wife from a prominent Western Muslim was brutally murdered for speaking out against the ideology? Can you imagine the hypocritical outrage if an Islamic apostate publicly announced she was leaving her Muslim husband because she feared he was involving their daughter too much in the religion?

Minimally, he, or she, would be called a racist, an islamophobe, a bigot.

Oh wait, it's already happening.

Brace yourself for the same condemnation of those mocking Mormonism or calling Scientology a cult. Just don't hold your breath.

Anti-Semitic Hungarian Leader Learned He Has Jewish Roots

Telegraph

Csanad Szegedi, a member of the European parliament and regional leader of Jobbik, said he learned "not long ago that I had parents of Jewish origins, that's the big news."

"I'm not saying I wasn't surprised by this news," he added, noting it would take a while to "digest" the information. [...]

In his latest interview he noted however: "I think that what counts is not to know who is a pure race Hungarian, the important thing is the way one behaves as a Hungarian."

Jewish leaders have mocked his "Hungarian statement".
...Jozsef Horvath, former head of Maccabi Hungary and president of Budapest’s Beit Shalom synagogue, called Szegedi's remarks "interesting."

"I will ask Holocaust survivors in my family if anyone inquired whether they behaved like Hungarians before they were rounded up to be sent to their deaths,” he told JTA

I especially like this remark by Mr Prasquier:
Dr. Richard Prasquier, the president of CRIF, the umbrella group of France’s Jewish community, reacted with dismissive irony to the news.

“We can but offer our sympathies in light of the terrible discovery,” Prasquier said. “In different circumstances, the appropriate solution would be hara-kiri [the Japanese suicidal form of disembowlment]. Having not chosen this option, the unfortunate Szegedi is forced to embark on philosophical pursuits superior to his intellectual capacity."

He can rest assured there are plenty of self hating Jews out there. Only time will tell if he becomes one of them

Want to Repeal Obamacare? Here's Something You Can Do RIGHT NOW.

Do you really want to see Obamacare REPEALED?

Do you think Mitch McConnell and his type are raring to get that done?

While Jim DeMint and his band of rebels can be counted on to fight hard for repeal, the Senate's establishment moderates are looking to "replace" it with something different. If you've been around for the earlier episodes of this series, you know that's code for "doing jack squat."

As usual, the Senate Republicans need some 'spine-stiffening.'

If you want to hold the Senate Republicans' feet to the fire on Obamacare, there's one thing you can do RIGHT NOW: help elect TED CRUZ to the U.S. Senate. If you're outside of Texas, you can sign up to make phone calls:

If you're in Texas, you can go to TedCruz.org and sign up to volunteer locally. Either way, this Texas Senate race is CRITICAL, and your help is needed.

Report: Al Qaeda Planning To Bomb U.S. Plane In Run-Up To Olympics?

The "report" on this is sketchy at best. Apparently this comes from British intelligence officials.

Via NYPost

Intelligence officials have uncovered a new al Qaeda plot to bomb a US passenger jet in the run-up to the London Olympics, according to a new report.

Al Qaeda's Yemen-based terror cell, the same organization behind the 2009 attempted underwear bombing and a similar terror plot uncovered by a CIA informant less than two months ago, is believed to be behind this latest planned attack, according to the Sunday Times of London.

The plan is not specifically targeted to the Olympics, intelligence officials told the paper, and instead should be seen as another attempt by al Qaeda's Yemen affiliate to blow up a US plane

“There is terrorist plotting going on irrespective of the Olympics. The only thing that connects this to the Olympics is the fact that they are about to happen,” said a Whitehall official.

Al Qaeda has recruited a Norwegian convert who goes by the Islamic name of Muslim Abu Abdurrahman[More...]

Combat Journalists and Live Tweeting Taliban Attack On Spozhmai Hotel: The Interview

I read Laura Walker's prior post, which she mentions, and was going to do a post on it until I noticed she did her 'part 2'. I also was watching the combat journalists Tweets, in real time, during the Taliban's attack on the Spozhmai Hotel. Needless to say I felt, and feared, for them.

You may want to read her prior post first, though, to get the back story on these interviews. Plus, she also has screencaps of the Tweets.

SOFREP

In my previous post I told you about the Taliban’s attack on the Spozhmai Hotel, and how the phenomenon of live tweeting a terror attack was so startling, that the combat journalists became part of the story.

Anyone who was paying attention on Twitter had a harrowing sense of what it was like to be there – and what it is like to be a combat journalist arriving on scene without weapons or any plan other than to make sure the world knows what is really happening.

Two of the combat journalists who were on the scene and live tweeting the hotel siege while under heavy fire happen to be good friends of mine, and both have been featured in the news this past week for this event.

I thought I would share a little bit about what it is they do with SOFREP readers, and they’ve graciously agreed. For personal security reasons, we chose to redact some answers. Hope you’ll understand, neither of these gentlemen are beloved by terrorists.

Meet Mustafa Kazemi and AMukhtar.

Awesome interview, be sure and read it all

BTW, The Jawa Report bloggers must be doing something wrong. Navy SEAL Brandon Webb who is Editor in Chief of SOFREP has had two recent death threats, on the same day, and in Arabic even!

Not fair!
