Chris "Tingles" Matthews: The Jerk Store Called - They're Running Out Of You!

This past week has been difficult for Chris "Tingles" Matthews.

First, he was in a heated exchange with RNC chairman Reince Priebus. Matthews accused the GOP of using racist euphemisms and code words to somehow influence 'racist' Americans. Priebus was clearly unraveled by Matthews' irrational accusations.

Matthews tried the same thing on Newt Gingrich later the same day. But Newt turned the tables on him.

After an MSNBC segment at the RNC, Matthews was on the receiving end of some hecklers. An MSNBC producer came to Matthews defense and shoved the hecklers. You can hear the witness account to that incident HERE.

Today in a restaurant, Matthews got into another confrontation, this time with several GOP delegates. The delegates were taunting Matthews (which I don't condone) and asked him if he got a thrill up his leg during Romney's speech. Matthews left the restaurant, only to angrily (racist code word, sorry) irately return several minutes later to say:

“What’s this, a douchebag convention?”

Seinfeld couldn't have done better. Maybe the guys were douchebags. But really, Tingles, is that the best you could do, even after a few moments to think about a comeback?

When questioned by The Hill about the insult, Matthews stated:

“I was trying in my way to engage, as I often do, with critics, hoping to find some common ground. Sometimes it works out better than this.”

I know I always like to converse with people who call me a douchebag. It's a great icebreaker.

Chris, word of advice - slow down. It's only September. At this rate you are going to have a breakdown before Halloween. I want you to keep it together. At least until November 6th. Then I'll enjoy watching you unravel the rest of the way. Keep this in your thoughts until then: President Romney. Get used to it.

Artist Jon McNaughton Debuts 'Obamanation' Interactive Painting...

Obamanation (One Painting That Says It All)

I chose to use an undisclosed studio so I could paint privately, without interruption, to focus on the task of embedding in a single painting all the subtle, mindless, radical and dangerous atrocities of the Obama administration.

I am just one person, a citizen of this country using my first amendment rights to speak out through my art. This is my declaration that we have never had a president do more to harm our country than Barack Obama.

To those who scoff or wish to trivialize this painting, I challenge you... I DARE YOU... study the links of the various symbols and metaphors that you see. There are over 60 in the painting. No person can analyze this image and learn about these facts and still, in good conscience, vote for Obama in 2012.

Report: Sinai Man Killed (Beheaded) for Cooperating With Israel

Arutz Sheva

Bedouins found a severed head near Egypt's border with Israel on Friday, security officials told the Bethlehem-based Ma’an news agency.

The officials indicated that jihadi groups in the Sinai were behind the murder.

Security sources said the head, found near the al-Ouja crossing with Israel, most likely belonged to Mnayzel Barikat, who disappeared two days ago.

The sources added that Barikat was seized by local terrorist groups who accuse him of cooperating with Israel in killing a terrorist in the Sinai Peninsula on Sunday.

Iran's Ayatollah Khamenei Hearts #Occupy

The Ayatollah Khamenei gave his seal of approval to the #Occupy movement:

The Ayatollah Ali Khamenei – the “supreme leader” of Iran – praised America’s “Occupy Wall Street” movement on Thursday, calling it a reflection of people around the world who are “losing their patience” with the dominance of the United States and Israel in the international community.

(Hat Tip: Gateway Pundit)

Maybe I'm way off here, but if a radical Iranian tyrant notorious for killing protesters in his own country gave approval for a movement I supported, I'd have to seriously re-think my whole position. But that's just me.

Below the fold, let's ask an Iranian protester if the "supreme leader's" comments about the #Occupy movement reflects those of the Iranian people...

Mitt Romney, America's Hope [UPDATE: Video Added]

Any one still have doubts that Mitt has the goods? If you didn't watch last night's acceptance speech by the next President of the United States, we have the full video posted over at Blogs4Mitt. Before you answer the question, watch the speech.

Last night was the first night I actually watched more than the headline speech. I watched off and on for, I dunno, an hour and a half or so before Mitt's speech. So I caught all of Clint Eastwood's er, what would you call that? Stand up routine?

I know people are defending Eastwood, but it was just .... sad. I was embarrassed. Not by the implied "go f*ck yourself" jokes. I don't think those were inappropriate. It was the delivery. He just seemed like an old man who couldn't get his thoughts straight. Which is sad on so many levels.

Mostly it was embarrassment for him. He really is one of the greatest Hollywood has ever produced. To see him reduced to this? Whoever decided to put him on stage without a script needs to be fired. I hope that if and when I ever begin to lose my faculties that no one will think it a good idea to hand me a microphone. It's a matter of dignity. And I'm pretty sure this is why Nancy Reagan kept Ronnie out of the spotlight during his twilight years.

That was the only bummer of the night, everything else was excellent.

My favorite speech of the night actually came from someone else who was ill prepared to appear before millions of people. It was the couple that was in Mitt Romney's congregation, the ones who had lost their son. The husband was a retired fire fighter and you could tell he was way nervous. [UPDATE: SH found the video and I've added it below]

But unlike Clint Eastwood, the veteran professional actor who you'd expect a smooth delivery from, this guy's nervousness actually made the speech better. And when he starts reading his wife's lines and you can kind of see her quietly trying to get him to stop, it was priceless.

When he was talking about his son's death and Romney's involvement in helping them? I just lost it. It was touching.

I guess two can play the Oprah game. But unlike Obama's handlers who I expect will march people on to stage telling stories about how Obama saved them because of this or that government program, these people had been actually touched by Romney personally. This is real human interaction, not the phony interaction of "caring" President through the medium of government bureaucrats.

It was a home run in the Shackleford household. If you didn't see the speech I'm talking about, you really need to. I can't remember the name of the couple, but if you find the YouTube video do me a favor and drop a line. UPDATE: Video added below.

But I came out of last night feeling energized. Which was the whole point of the affair. It worked.

I know some of you have been skeptical about Mitt's conservative creds, but do you have any doubts now? If you do, I would suggest that you aren't being fair.

Normally, one would expect last night's speech to be the one where the Republican candidate began his turn towards the center. But it wasn't. Mitt covered every conservative theme on the books. It's because Mitt really is a conservative, not the moderate some naysayers suggest.

Over the summer I spent an evening with one of Mitt Romney's former aids who happens to be an old friend of mine. We talked about where Mitt was politically. If I understand what he was saying correctly, Romney is certainly more conservative than, say, a George W. Bush on most issues and definitely more than a John McCain.

While he's certainly to the left of me, I've never thought of myself as anything other than on the libertarian fringes of the party. Think of a Ron Paul guy tempered by a little thing I like to call "reality". In other words, I don't necessarily consider myself in the mainstream.

And if I would go all Chris Matthews last night and get a serious tingling sensation up and down my leg as Romney articulated the greatness of America as not lying in government programs, but in the liberty to pursue our own economic interests free of government control -- then we have to give credit where credit is due: Mitt Romney isn't just an acceptable candidate, he's a damn good one!

And I'm guessing he'll be a damn fine President as well.

UPDATE: Here's the video below that I was talking about.

UPDATE: And apparently Ed Morissey and Byron York agree about the moving story of the Oparowskis. But it wasn't just the story, it was the fact that they came off as real people. Not just some teleprompter reading partisans.

I'll also add that Geraghty over at NRO agrees with me about Romney's knockout of a speech.

#Eastwooding

eastwooding.jpg

Last night at the RNC when Clint Eastwood came on stage he had a empty chair next to him. The chair denoted empty suit ala empty chair Obama. He did what other Hollywood stars have failed to do, or dared to do, make fun of Obama. He is paying for this dearly now as most of the Hollywood and MFM are attacking him over it. I would imagine he doesn't really give a sh*t.

Oh, the narcissist in chief didn't like it either:

Syria: Christians Beheaded; Suicide Bomb Kills Dozens

The Syrian Army and the FSA (Free Syrian Army) have been battling in a civil war for months. But Jihadists still find the time to kill a few Infidels....

Damascus (Agenzia Fides) - A terrorist attack hit innocent Christian faithful and innocent Druzes in the area of Jaramana, a suburb of Damascus: yesterday, August 28, at 2 pm, a bomb in a car was detonated while a crowd of faithful, families, elderly people, women and children, were heading to the cemetery to bury two young people. The two had died the day before, on August 27, also victims of an IED. As the crowd, after the funeral, was accompanying the deceased to the burial, a taxi exploded causing 12 deaths (according to other sources 27), including 5 children, and injuring more than 50 people.

[...]

Today in Zamalka a family of Armenian Christians was found murdered, and all members of the family horribly decapitated. The execution brings to mind the work of radical Islamist Salafis.

Exposing the Leftist Douche Calling for Mitt Romney's Murder

I guess I'm late to the game, but this guy Joshua Scott Albert had put up a Facebook page advocating the murder of Mitt Romney.

The Facebook page is down, but this guy still has a blog. I won't link it but Marezilla has a pretty good expose on him here.

I'm pretty sure that if this guy was a Tea Partier and he had advocated the murder of the President, that the story would lead on CNN and MSNBC for the next 24 hours followed by another 48 hours on calls for "civility in public discourse" or some other nonsense.

Thirty year old Aminat Kurbanova converts to Islam then splodes self for her goat humping mujahid husband:

Said Afandi, 74, the powerful leader of a Sufi Muslim brotherhood in Russia's unstable province of Dagestan, was killed Tuesday along with six other people, including an 11-year-old boy, in the central village of Chirkei by the bomber, who approached his house disguised as a pilgrim. Afandi's tens of thousands of followers included influential officials, clerics and businessmen.

Police in Dagestan said Wednesday that the bomber was Aminat Kurbanova, a 30-year-old resident of Dagestan's capital, Makhachkala. The Interfax news agency claimed she was an ethnic Russian woman who had converted to Islam after marrying an Islamist militant.

Awesome RNC Speeches: My Mom, the Ex-Democrat? (bumped)

How awesome was Ann Romney's speech last night? Awesome enough that my retired school teacher of a mom texted me saying that I should get my 13 year old daughter to watch it.

My mom is a Democrat. Or perhaps I should say was?

Growing up we talked about politics a lot. And by we, I mean my Dad and I. Not my mom. Never my mom.

My mom is the sort that avoids confrontation at all costs. So if ever my Dad and I had the slightest disagreement over something she would kindly excuse herself from the room.

She is completely apolitical. I have never heard her discuss politics. Ever.

Occasionally she would let out who she was going to vote for. Always a Democrat. Her choice of the Democratic candidate always seemed linked to her job as a public school teacher. Democrats promised more money, she voted for them.

But that is complete conjecture on my part. Like I said, she never talked politics.

For her to actually watch Ann Romney's speech last night is a surprise to me. But for her to actually want to talk about it? To get others to watch it?

I'm shocked. Totally shocked.

This does not bode well for Barack Obama. It seems that he has lost my mom. I'm betting there are a whole lot of people out there who are like my mom.

We have Ann Romney's full speech here at Blogs4Mitt. And Chris Christie's speech is here.

Take my mom's advice and watch them.

LA Times: RNC Puts a Brown Face on a White Party

la-na-tt-white-party.jpg

Tell me again, just who is racist?

...The reality is, there are great and growing numbers of Blacks, Hispanics and other so called minorities within the Republican base. While not in proportion to the Democrats, any one who knows any thing understands that the GOP vigorously pursues outreach efforts within those communities. But rather than report, or weigh in on that, it’s as if the media is frightened by it, instead, straining itself to portray the GOP as the party of the white, where no other color is accepted, or deemed worthy, somehow. That’s not only a myth it’s a lie.

Thomas was staying in a shed in back of a military surplus store and Sea was sleeping in a tent on the same property, located in "Romneyville."

Sea took a piece of cardboard from Thomas' shed and that prompted the fight, police said. Sea was being held at the county jail. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney.

Forget Our Nation's Security, There's an Oscar To Be Won For Pres 'Gutsy Call'....

president_hollywood.jpg

Judicial watch obtained a stack of "overlooked" CIA records detailing meetings with bin Laden filmakers

...The records – which should have been produced months ago pursuant to a court order in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed on January 21, 2012 – include records from a “stack” of “overlooked” documents discovered by the CIA in July 2012. The following are highlights from the records, which include internal DOD, White House and CIA email correspondence with the filmmakers:
According to a June 15, 2011, email from Benjamin Rhodes, Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications, to then Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs Doug Wilson, then-CIA Director of Public Affairs George Little, and Deputy White House Press Secretary Jaime Smith, the Obama White House was intent on “trying to have visibility into the UBL (Usama bin Laden) projects.”

“…we are trying to have visibility into the UBL projects and this is likely the most high profile one. Would like to have whatever group is going around in here at the WH [White House] to get a sense of what they’re doing / what cooperation they’re seeking. Jamie will be POC [point of contact].”

According to e-mail exchange on June 7, 2011, CIA spokesperson Marie E. Harf openly discussed providing preferential treatment to the Boal/Bigelow project over others related to the bin Laden killing: “I know we don’t pick favorites but it makes sense to get behind a winning horse…Mark and Kathryn’s movie is going to be the first and the biggest. It’s got the most money behind it, and two Oscar winners on board…”

In a July 20, 2011, e-mail, Mark Boal writes to thank then-CIA Director of Public Affairs George Little for “pulling for him” with the agency, noting that it made, “all the difference.” Little responds: “…I can’t tell you how excited we all are (at DOD and CIA) about the project…PS – I want you to know how good I’ve been not mentioning the premiere tickets. :)”

A 19-year-old Michigan State University student is recovering at home in Oakland County today after surgery overnight for a broken jaw his family says stems from a brutal hate crime.

Two men at a party early Sunday attacked Zachary Tennen, a journalism sophomore at MSU, after asking whether he was Jewish, his mother, Tina Tennen, said today.

They raised their arms in a Nazi salute, chanting “Heil Hitler” and then knocked Tennen unconscious, she said.

While he was out, the men stapled his mouth, putting a staple into his gum, she said.

Tennen said her son said no one at the party helped him as he was attacked then thrown out of the gathering

Tuesday's Sexual Health News: "18 Again" Virginity Cream...

18 again.jpg

Virginity cream sparks Indian sex debate

An Indian company has launched what it claims is the country's first vagina tightening cream, saying it will make women feel "like a virgin" again. The company says it is about empowering women, but critics say it is doing the opposite. The BBC's Rajini Vaidyanathan in Mumbai reports.

It is certainly a bold claim. As the music starts playing on the advertisement for the 18 Again cream, a sari-clad woman is singing and dancing.

It is an unusual take on Bollywood.

"I feel like a virgin," she croons, although the advert makes it clear she is not.

Her shocked in-laws look on, before her husband joins her for some salsa-style dancing.

"Feels like the very first time," she continues, as she is twirled around.

Cut away to her mother-in-law who begins by responding with a disgusted look on her face, but by the end of the advert even she has been won over, and is seen buying the product online.

Word is Xariif tried it on himself, hilarity ensued.

Gaza: Rachel Corrie Pancake Breakfast

Ran out of syrup.

An Israeli court has ruled

that the state of Israel was not at fault for the death of US activist Rachel Corrie, who was killed in the Gaza Strip by an Israeli army bulldozer in 2003.

Ms Corrie's family had brought a civil claim for negligence against the Israeli ministry of defence.

The judge said the 23-year-old's death was a "regrettable accident" and that the state was not responsible.

She had been trying to stop Palestinian homes being pulled down in Gaza.

Judge Oded Gershon, presiding at the court in the town of Haifa, said Ms Corrie had been protecting terrorists in a designated combat zone.

Terror Investigation: Florida Imam Abu Taubah (aka Marcus Dwayne Robertson): Akhi, This Is What a General's Star Looks Like

Marcus Dwayne Robertson

The "akhi" was Jonathan Paul Jimenez. Being a smert mujahid, Jimenez planned on financing his jihad by:

Federal agents accuse Jimenez of being a tax cheat to collect a fraudulent $5,000 refund that would be used to pay for his travel. He had the check sent to one of Robertson's Orange County homes.
To bring everyone up to date now:
To remind everyone, Abu Taubah a/k/a Marcus Dwayne Robertson was arrested in August of 2011 on one Federal count of possession of a weapon by a convicted felon.
Taubah originally plead not guilty, but later changed his plea to guilty. The weapons charge was just part of a larger picture.

WFTV:

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. —

On Monday night, WFTV learned more about what federal agents say a central Florida Imam and another local man, who are facing charges in an FBI anti-terrorism investigation, were planning[...]

New documents allege Robertson was training Jonathan Paul Jimenez, who had moved to central Florida from New York, in skills necessary to "participate in violent jihad overseas," skills like martial arts, firearms and knife training.

Federal prosecutors said in June 2011, Jimenez, with the help of Robertson and others, was making plans to travel overseas.

According to documents, during a recorded call, Jimenez told a confidential government source that Robertson told him "it was permissible or obligatory to kill members of the armed forces, specifically generals" and that Robertson showed him what a general's stars look like.

"Hurricane Isaac Is God's Punishment for GOP"

I kept telling myself over the weekend that I needed to cruise over to the Democratic Underground to see which lunatic was going to be first to make the claim that Hurricane Isaac is God's punishment for the Republican party's stance on Medicare. I didn't get around to it.

Besides, wouldn't a post from one of the radical Islamist websites making the same claim, but this time linking it to Allah's wrath on the puppets of the Zionist entity? But I didn't do that either.

I knew someone would make the claim that the hurricane was God's punishment for the GOP, I just think that it would have come from World Net Daily. I guess my decision never to read WND again was the right one as this is what passes for an editorial at the home of Birthers and other fringe crazies these days:

Could Hurricane Isaac’s disrupting of the Republican convention here be tied to recent policy decisions by the GOP leadership and Barack Obama?

That question is being raised by Bible prophecy expert William Koenig, whose book, “Eye to Eye: Facing the Consequences of Dividing Israel,” links catastrophic hurricanes hitting the U.S. with changes in policy toward Israel....

“This is the second straight Republican convention postponed due to a major hurricane,” points out Koenig. “And this is the third straight Republican convention that became secondary news due to a hurricane. Bush was pressuring Israel during the times of the 2004 and 2008 conventions.”

Apparently the only other entity in the universe who cares about the Republican Party platform outside a few dozen party activists and MSNBC hosts is the Lord of Hosts, YWHY!

NC Jihadi Sentenced to 18 Years

After pleading guilty, he worked as a cooperating witness. So, I guess 18 years isn't bad:

The ringleader of a North Carolina terror cell was sentenced to 18 years in prison Friday in connection with a plot to wage violent jihad overseas.

Daniel Patrick Boyd pleaded guilty in February 2011 to conspiring to provide material support to terrorists and plotting to murder, kidnap and maim people overseas. Between 1989 and 1992, Boyd received military-style training in terrorist camps in Pakistan and Afghanistan for the purpose of engaging in jihadi attacks. He also fought Soviet troops alongside the mujahideen in Afghanistan, court records show.

Video: Sufi Mosque Bulldozed in Broad Daylight in Libya

The good news? Some people were arrested for the attack on the Sufi shrine. And the perps were kind enough to video part of the destruction.

The bad news? It was done in broad daylight with no fear of a government response because some of those involved were the very people who's job it was to protect the mosque:

The demolition of the large Sha'ab mosque happened in broad daylight on Saturday, drawing condemnation from government officials and Libyans across the country and abroad.

In Zlitan, witnesses said that an armed group, claiming to be Salafis, carried out the assault on the Sufi shrine, the tomb of Abdel Salam al-Asmar, a 15th-century Muslim scholar....

"What is truly regrettable and suspicious is that some of those who took part in these destruction activities are supposed to be of the security forces and from the revolutionaries," Magariaf told reporters on Saturday night.

And this isn't an isolated incident. Last week a Sufi library and another Sufi mosque were both attacked by the Salafis.

How The Mad Mullahs Helped Recent Earthquake Victims

irgc_poster.jpg

By sending the IRGC to boldly attack a earthquake relief camp in Eastern Azerbaijan

At midnight on August 23, security and IRGC forces attacked a relief camp set up to help earthquake victims in Eastern Azerbaijan. Thirty five volunteer students and relief workers who had gathered to help the earthquake victims at the camp, located on the road between Tabriz and Varzaghan, were arrested and transferred to Tabriz Intelligence Office. All items donated by individuals and stored in the camp’s warehouse were transferred to an unknown location and the warehouse was sealed.

According to Kaleme Website, last Thursday all arrested women and three of the men were released on bail.

France Begins Reconquista of France

Apparently France's socialist government has decided that enough is enough and has plans to take back the so-called "no-go zones", mostly Muslim immigrant neighborhoods where the troubled "youths" own the night.

Consider this one of the positive things about Leftist governments. When the Right is in power, actions such as these would be construed as "Islamaphobic" in the press. When the Left does the same thing, it's just establishing "law and order".

Caption This: Neil Didn't Do It Himself

Our Narcissist Commander-In-Chief honored a great America hero from the Space Race era by posting a picture of himself gazing at the crescent moon.

obama-space.jpg
(Click For Full Image)

UPDATE: Something struck me as odd about this picture, beyond the narcissistic value. I noted the crescent moon in jest, but that made me curious enough to check the moon phases since Neil Armstrong passed away on the 25th. The moon phase that day was a "waxing gibbous," which means it appeared to be more than a half moon but less than a full moon, and was (is) increasing the illuminated area. So, assuming this picture was taken a day or two after Neil's death, the moon in the picture should be closer to full than a crescent.

I wonder why Obama is gazing at a clearly crescent moon? My conspiratorial side has a few ideas, but I'll spare you.

SooperMexican noticed this as well, and discovered the picture is actually a stock photo.

Taliban Disapproves Dance Party

Ya think?

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Insurgents beheaded 17 civilians in a Taliban-controlled area of southern Afghanistan, apparently because they attended a dance party that flouted the extreme brand of Islam embraced by the militants, officials said Monday. [...]

The victims were part of a large group that had gathered late Sunday in Helmand province's Musa Qala district for a celebration involving music and dancing, said district government chief Neyamatullah Khan. He said the Taliban slaughtered them to show their disapproval of the event.

KABUL, Afghanistan – A NATO airstrike in eastern Afghanistan killed a dozen militants including a senior leader of the Taliban in Pakistan, the international military coalition said Saturday, dealing a blow to armed extremists operating on both sides of the countries' porous border. The strike in Afghanistan's eastern Kunar province killed Mullah Dadullah, the self-proclaimed Taliban leader in Pakistan's Bajur tribal area that lies across the border, late Friday afternoon, coalition spokesman Maj. Martyn Crighton.

Al-Qaeda Online Threatens Navy SEAL Involved in bin Laden Raid

Finally, an idle threat I'd like to see the eHadis actually try. It's not really a fair fight. A wannabe al Qaeda member who lives in his mom's basement and fantasizes about goat porn and jihad, vs. a member of SEAL Team 6.

I almost feel sorry for the guy.

Yeah, please try it. Also, bring along a fellow jihadi to video tape the attempted murder. I'll pop some popcorn in anticipation:

Users on several militant Islamic websites affiliated with al-Qaida have posted the name and photo of a former Navy SEAL identified as the author of an upcoming book on the commando raid that killed Osama bin Laden. The posts called for his "destruction" in revenge for the al-Qaida founder’s killing....

"Oh Allah, make an example of him for the whole world and give him dark days ahead," read another....

"Here is the first picture of the dog who murdered the martyr Shaykh Usama Bin Laden," wrote one of the posters, using an alternate spelling of bin Laden's name. "May Allah have mercy on [bin Laden]."

Where's Xariif?

It seems he got himself into a bit of trouble:

...officers near University Avenue were told by a dispatcher to look out for "a white male in a red pickup performing oral sex on a white dildo." [...]

After pulling over Brian Wutschke, 45, of Farmington, police searched the interior of his truck and found a sex toy under a flannel shirt. They also noted several pairs of women's panties strewn around the interior, including hanging from the rear-view mirror and the gear shift.

When they performed a pat-down search of the man and reached "the waistline area," officers could feel something vibrating. The man then informed them he also had a sex toy inserted inside him.

My question is: can you really perform oral sex on a dildo? I mean, I know you can have sex with a dildo, but doesn't on a dildo imply the device is getting some sort of pleasure out of it? Does anyone know which is grammatically correct?

That leads me to an idea. I wonder if anyone has come up with a dildo that talks dirty to the person using it? I bet there's a market out there for that... In comments, let me know what you think a talking dildo should say.

One other thing, I bet after this post gets archived, if you Google "dildo" The Jawa Report will be on top. No need to thank me now.

Kansas City GSA Employee Works From Home -- In Hawaii

What a gig!

Kansas City, Missouri (CNN) -- The General Services Administration, already under investigation for lavish spending, allowed an employee to telecommute from Hawaii even though he is based at the GSA's Kansas City, Missouri, office, a CNN investigation has found.

It cost more than $24,000 for the business development specialist to travel to and from the mainland United States over the past year.

He is among several hundred GSA "virtual" workers who also travel to various conferences and their home offices, costing the agency millions of dollars over the past three years[...]

And a GSA employee in Kansas City, who requested anonymity, said that hiring someone in Hawaii to work for the Kansas City region was ludicrous.

"It doesn't make sense," the employee said. "When you consider everything you need when you hire someone, it would have been better to look for someone in the Kansas City area. It would have reduced the cost of travel by at least 70 percent when you look at just the airfare of what it takes to from Honolulu to Washington, D.C., where a lot of business is done.

Multiple People Shot Near Empire State Bldg, Police Say
2 Dead Including Shooter
Perp Named: Jeffrey Johnson

Developing

I am hearing the gunman, now dead, was fired and came back to his former work place and started shooting indiscriminately.

Update:

A dispute between coworkers exploded into gunfire outside the Empire State Building this morning — with the guman killing an innocent bystander before he was fatally shot by police, sources said.

There were a total of 10 people struck — and the 9 a.m. shooting sent panicked pedestrians scrambling from the jam-packed intersection of 34th Street and Fifth Avenue[...]

It’s unclear what sparked the deadly argument, which happened in the heart of the morning rush on a street loaded with commuters and tourists.

The two men fought right on the sidewalk before one suddenly drew his weapon and opened fire.

Responding NYPD cops fatally shot the gunman.

Update II: News conference, Jeffrey Johnson, age 53, was the gunmen. Johnson was employed at Hazan Imports and was let go in a company downsizing. 2 dead, Johnson and a unnamed bystander age 43. Johnson tried to kill the responding police officers and the police killed him.

Why Does Obama Have Anti-Israel Activists On His List of Rabbi Supporters?

Because, they are the only kind he likes?

[Yid With Lid]Note: I received a press release today from the Republican Jewish Coalition informing me that one of the Rabbis on the President's "Rabbis for Obama" list (Gottlieb) was an Anti-Israel activist. Over my lunchtime brisket sandwich from Bens, I decided to see if the President had any others like Rabbi Gottlieb on his list. Before I opened my can of Dr. Browns cream soda, I found eight more.

Earlier this week the Obama campaign announced the formation of “Rabbis For Obama," featuring over 600 rabbis from across the country and across all Jewish denominations dedicated to four more years of big government and anti-Israel policies.

The campaign didn’t bother to check the list, or simply didn’t care who was on it ,because at least eight of the Rabbis on the list are members of the Rabbinical Council of The Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP)--an organization named by the Anti-Defamation League as one of the 10 most anti-Israel organizations in America (I am sure their mothers are proud).

Ruthless Killer Anders Breivik: Norway Court Finds Him Sane

And sentences him to 21 yrs of cornholing:

A Norwegian court has found that mass killer Anders Behring Breivik is sane and sentenced him to 21 years in jail.

Breivik admitted killing 77 people and wounding more than 240 others when he bombed central Oslo and then opened fire at an island youth camp last year.

He insisted he was sane and refused to plead guilty, seeking to justify his attacks by saying they were necessary to stop the "Islamisation" of Norway.

Prosecutors had called for him to be considered insane.

The five judges were unanimous in ruling that Breivik was sane.

He was convicted of terrorism and premeditated murder, and given the maximum sentence of 21 years' imprisonment.

However, that can be prolonged at a later date if he is deemed to remain a danger to society.

Lock him up with Bubba and throw away the damn key...

And Now A Moment of Political Science: Model Shows Romney Landslide

As a practicing political scientist, it's good to know my profession has finally come up with a predictive model I approve of -- meaning, one which predicts what I hope will happen. However, given that the most important independent variable in the model (the thing that causes Romney to win) is economic in nature, doesn't that presume that in this election cycle the media will do it's job and inform the American people of just how bad the economy has been under Obama?

That is to say, is it the economy that pushes the predicted voting pattern or is it perceptions of the economy? If it's the former and the model is correct then there is really not much Obama can do and all that Mitt needs to do to assure a win is keep breathing.

However, if the model is dependent on perceptions of the economy then the media can thwart Mitt's chances of winning. This is empirically the worst recovery in 60 years, but you wouldn't know that by watching most news reports. Too many people I know simply do not understand how bad it is and how this President has underperformed on so many economic indicators.

Why? Sure, part of it is partisanship, but a good deal of it -- especially among the critical swing and independent voters -- is because they really think the most pressing issue of the day is whatever it is CNN is talking about. And that sure aint the economy.

In other words, the mainstream media can have a major affect on what people think about the economy. And as long as they boycott the subject, then the traditional economic predictors of successful Presidential races won't matter.

Which is why my advice to the Romney camp is to start spending money on a national campaign to inform people just how bad the Obama "recovery" has been. They can't count on the news to report it, so they are going to be on their own. This means less money spent on state-specific ads, and more money on national ads.

Do this and let the numbers speak for themselves. If they do, the election is in the bag -- in a big way.

Here's the press release from the professors who did the study:

--------------
A University of Colorado analysis of state-by-state factors leading to the Electoral College selection of every U.S. president since 1980 forecasts that the 2012 winner will be Mitt Romney.

The key is the economy, say political science professors Kenneth Bickers of CU-Boulder and Michael Berry of CU Denver. Their prediction model stresses economic data from the 50 states and the District of Columbia, including both state and national unemployment figures as well as changes in real per capita income, among other factors.

Based on our forecasting model, it becomes clear that the president is in electoral trouble,” said Bickers, also director of the CU in DC Internship Program.

According to their analysis, President Barack Obama will win 218 votes in the Electoral College, short of the 270 he needs. And though they chiefly focus on the Electoral College, the political scientists predict Romney will win 52.9 percent of the popular vote to Obama’s 47.1 percent, when considering only the two major political parties.

“For the last eight presidential elections, this model has correctly predicted the winner,” said Berry. “The economy has seen some improvement since President Obama took office. What remains to be seen is whether voters will consider the economy in relative or absolute terms. If it’s the former, the president may receive credit for the economy’s trajectory and win a second term. In the latter case, Romney should pick up a number of states Obama won in 2008.”

Their model correctly predicted all elections since 1980, including two years when independent candidates ran strongly, 1980 and 1992. It also correctly predicted the outcome in 2000, when Al Gore received the most popular vote but George W. Bush won the election.

The study will be published this month in PS: Political Science & Politics, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Political Science Association. It will be among about a dozen election prediction models, but one of only two to focus on the Electoral College.

While many forecast models are based on the popular vote, the Electoral College model developed by Bickers and Berry is the only one of its type to include more than one state-level measure of economic conditions.

In addition to state and national unemployment rates, the authors looked at per capita income, which indicates the extent to which people have more or less disposable income. Research shows that these two factors affect the major parties differently: Voters hold Democrats more responsible for unemployment rates while Republicans are held more responsible for per capita income.

Accordingly — and depending largely on which party is in the White House at the time — each factor can either help or hurt the major parties disproportionately.

Their results show that “the apparent advantage of being a Democratic candidate and holding the White House disappears when the national unemployment rate hits 5.6 percent,” Berry said. The results indicate, according to Bickers, “that the incumbency advantage enjoyed by President Obama, though statistically significant, is not great enough to offset high rates of unemployment currently experienced in many of the states.”

In an examination of other factors, the authors found that none of the following had any statistically significant effect on whether a state ultimately went for a particular candidate: The location of a party’s national convention; the home state of the vice president; or the partisanship of state governors.

In 2012, “What is striking about our state-level economic indicator forecast is the expectation that Obama will lose almost all of the states currently considered as swing states, including North Carolina, Virginia, New Hampshire, Colorado, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Florida,” Bickers said.

In Colorado, which went for Obama in 2008, the model predicts that Romney will receive 51.9 percent of the vote to Obama’s 48.1 percent, again with only the two major parties considered.

The authors also provided caveats. Factors they said may affect their prediction include the timeframe of the economic data used in the study and close tallies in certain states. The current data was taken five months in advance of the Nov. 6 election and they plan to update it with more current economic data in September. A second factor is that states very close to a 50-50 split may fall an unexpected direction.

“As scholars and pundits well know, each election has unique elements that could lead one or more states to behave in ways in a particular election that the model is unable to correctly predict,” Berry said.

Election prediction models “suggest that presidential elections are about big things and the stewardship of the national economy,” Bickers said. “It’s not about gaffes, political commercials or day-to-day campaign tactics. I find that heartening for our democracy.”

ICE Agents File Suit Against Napolitano Over 'Amnesty' Program..

Previously a sexual harassment lawsuit was filed against Nappy, and now this:

FOX

Ten federal immigration agents have filed suit against Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano claiming recent directives are forcing them to break the law and ignore their duties when it comes to deporting illegal immigrants.

The suit was filed Thursday in Texas federal court by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials. It challenges recent directives allowing some illegal immigrants -- particularly non-felons and those who came to the U.S. as children -- to stay and, in some cases, get work permits.

The suit, obtained by Fox News, says the agents are being forced to "violate federal law." It says the new directive "unconstitutionally usurps and encroaches upon the legislative powers of Congress." ICE Director John Morton is also named as a defendant.

Kris Kobach, lead attorney on the case, equated the move to give thousands of illegal immigrants a reprieve to the failed Fast and Furious gun-walking operation. [More...]

I hope the outcome of this has a happy ending as this administration is definitely not going to be pleased.

The State Department: "What Palestinian Honor Killings"?!?!

I just about fell off my chair when I read this, especially since I just did a post on honor crimes.

Monday's Daily Press Briefing at the State Department started with Iran's "chest beating" comments about Israel. Natch, a "skinny dipping" question, to hell with talking about the Mad Mullahs

Let’s go to what’s on your minds.

QUESTION: I guess we could kind of stay on the Israel theme. I’m wondering if the – your travel advice, your Travel Warning, or your Consular Information Sheets for Israel have a section on skinny-dipping in the Sea of Galilee – (laughter) – and if not, whether you might be willing to add such a section for certain members of Congress.

MS. NULAND: I think I’m not going to wade into that one at all, Matt. (Laughter.) Thank you for the opportunity, however.

Back to the point of honor crimes, this is pathetic:
QUESTION: So what was the purpose of the meeting with the Quartet? I mean, did it have, like, an agenda? And what was hoped to arrive at, and did he arrive at it?

MS. NULAND: Well, as you know, he saw Prime Minister Netanyahu, he saw President Abbas, he saw many members of their governments, he saw the negotiators. So we always – at the end of those kinds of rounds of intensive dialogue, he generally meets with the Quartet to read them out, to compare notes on what they’ve got from their own meetings, so further coordination with the Quartet.

QUESTION: And finally – I know you guys issued a statement regarding the money on Friday; you responded to the question that was asked by Mr. Matt Lee the day before. I wanted to ask whether you also made conditional on the judicial process in the West Bank. Because as it seems, honor killing is on the rise, and there is a loophole in the law that basically allows the killers to go free. Do you ever make – like, reforming the law to tackle this issue that is becoming a real problem?

MS. NULAND: You mean linking money to this particular --

QUESTION: Yeah. I mean, you linked it to other aspects, to other good behaviors by the Palestinians, but do you ever link it to such things?

MS. NULAND: I don’t have anything particular on that. If we have something – I mean, in general, as you know, this money is designed to support strong institutions of the Palestinian Authority, democratic institutions increasing their services to the Palestinian people. So the degree to which we have issues there and the way governance is handled, we obviously are clear with the Palestinian Authority.

QUESTION: Is this an issue that the State Department would raise – the rise of honor killing?

MS. NULAND: Obviously, it sounds like the kind of issue we would generally raise in the context of our human rights discussion, yeah.

Please, Jill.

QUESTION: Iraq.

MS. NULAND: Yeah. The scarf is the color of your eyes, my dear.

,b>QUESTION: Oh, thank you. They’re – actually, they’re red, but –

MS. NULAND: (Laughter.) We won’t ask about your Eid al-Fitr celebrations.

The broom just swept Palis honor crimes under the rug.

This is the real "War on Women" this administration is afraid to called out for fear of being called Islamophobic.

2k Words on Hollywood's Obsession w/ America's Worst President

If the people we put on our money is a reflection of who we think are the greatest American statesman in history, then it's clear what Hollywood thinks history will record of Pres. Obama.

Here's a screenshot of a $50 bill from the movie Total Recall (2012), set sometime in the future. Yes, that's President Obama's mug you see.

obama_money_total_recall.jpg

And this up close screen cap from the TV show Terra Nova, also set in the future. That would also be President Obama's portrait.

Yeah, I know, it's pretty subtle. And it's not like we didn't already know who the vast majority of Hollywood supports. But isn't it kind of odd that they choose the worst President in modern history as their hero? Jimmy Carter seems like a much likelier candidate for future monetary fame than Barack Obama.

The PJ Tatler has obtained documents from the Justice Department detailing efforts to recruit attorneys and staff who are dwarfs or who have “psychiatric disabilities” or “severe intellectual disabilities.” On May 31, 2012, Assistant Attorney General Tom Perez issued a directive to affirmatively recruit people with these “targeted disabilities.” ...

Those with “targeted disabilities” may be hired through a “non-competitive” appointment. That means they don’t have to endure the regular civil service competition among applicants, but can be plucked from the stack of resumes and hired immediately instead.

*With apologies to retards for the insulting comparison between them and Eric Holder.

Crony Capitalism: More Obama Friends Get Massive "Stimulus" Funds

Chicago Energy Behemoth Scored $200 Million in Stimulus Funds:

Exelon’s top executives were early and frequent supporters of Mr. Obama as he rose from the Illinois State Senate to the White House. John W. Rogers Jr., a friend of the president’s and one of his top fund-raisers, is an Exelon board member. David Axelrod, Mr. Obama’s longtime political strategist, once worked as an Exelon consultant, and Rahm Emanuel, the Chicago mayor and Mr. Obama’s former chief of staff, helped create the company through a corporate merger in 2000 while working as an investment banker....

Exelon, which provides power to more than 6.6 million customers in at least 16 states and the District of Columbia, was chosen as one of only six electric utilities nationwide for the maximum $200 million stimulus grant from the Energy Department. And when the Treasury Department granted loans for renewable energy projects, Exelon landed a commitment for up to $646 million allowing it, on extremely generous financial terms, to finance one of the world’s largest photovoltaic solar projects.

Like I've been saying, it's good to know the King.

Forms Of "Honour" Based Violence And Oppression

This is what Obama's favorite activist, Sandra Fluke, should turn her attention to instead of you conservative bitches, pay for my birth control!

While killing in the name of ‘honour’ is the most discussed aspect of the phenomenon, this is only one aspect of a nexus of control over women’s lives. Women in ‘honour’ cultures may be subjected to constant surveillance, without which it is assumed they may transgress the honour code and bring the family into disrepute. This may imply that women from these cultures have little privacy at home, and few opportunities to socialise outside their kinship network. The family may try to restrict women’s movements to ensure they do not develop relationships outside the family or community grouping, meaning a reduction on women’s freedom of movement and association. Such an ethic of control may reduce women’s opportunities to take part in the social world, form relationships of their choosing, and to seek help in the event of violence or coercion. Women (and men) are expected to conform to the wishes of their elders who are presumed to be acting in for the greater good of the family as a whole; those who insist upon their autonomy are considered selfish and disruptive to the family, and its honour.

Where a perceived slight to the family ‘honour’ has occurred, responses vary, according to the family’s preferences and the public nature of the ‘dishonouring’ behaviour.

Forced abortions and hymen repair

Abductions and imprisonment

Forced marriage

Honor suicide

Honor killings

Islamist Mind Games: How German Islamists Recruit Young Men For Jihad

Interesting background on a "hunter", or Islamist recruiter and another young man who became another "hunter's" prey.

The following is just a few snippets, so be sure and read it all.

Via Spiegel

Young Muslim men in Germany are systematically trying to recruit their peers for jihad using sophisticated rhetoric and psychology and by targeting vulnerable youths who are searching for direction in life. Two men who have quit the scene tell their story to SPIEGEL, providing a rare look into a dangerous underground.

He worked at his uncle's falafel stand and read Immanuel Kant, and later Plato and Nietzsche. In the end, he became a radical Islamist, recruiting new talent for a Muslim holy war in the middle of the German city of Hamburg. Djamal was the hunter.

Bora, 23, grew up on the Reeperbahn, a street in Hamburg's entertainment and red-light district. His parents are from Turkey. His mother sells Tupperware and his father has a store. For a long time, Bora didn't know what to do with himself. He wanted to have fun, but he was always searching for something meaningful. Then he met radical Islamists. Bora was the prey.

The basement bar where they are now sitting was their common territory for about a year. It was a place where hunters could find their prey.

The bar used to be a hangout for radical leftists called "Hinkelstein." First-year students would go there to listen to radical leaders, and it was a gateway of sorts on the path to the left-wing extremist milieu.

By the time Djamal had hit upon this basement bar as a place where he could do his work -- namely separating his prey from German society -- the leftists were long gone. The bar's new clientele were also looking for answers, but in the Koran instead of in the writings of Marx and Lenin[...]

Targeting Santa Claus Muslims

"Our strategy was always the same," says Djamal: sit down, start talking about God, take a look around to see if anyone seems interested, and invite "the brother" to join the group. Then a process began that Djamal and his fellow proselytizers had worked out in role-playing games in a motel room in an industrial part of Hamburg. In the exercises, one person was always the "victim," or infidel, while the others would try to "catch" him. A person is considered caught when he believes in the existence of God and starts to become interested in Islam.

Bora, the "easy prey," is part of a generation of young children of immigrants who were born in German cities and grew up there. Their parents have raised them in traditional Islamic ways, but the children tend to work out their own version of Islam. Pierre Vogel (radical cleric...ed) calls them "Santa Claus Muslims." They know that pork is forbidden for Muslims, but they've tried it anyway, perhaps at their first soccer match. They know that drinking alcohol is a sin for Muslims, as is sex before marriage, and yet they party every weekend.

Not So Much Hate Post (Bumped & Updated)

UPDATE: Turns out, it may not have been any sort of "hate crime" at all. An anonymous caller (probably frightened of retaliation from the Religion of Peace™) said he left the spoiled bacon for stray animals.

As my dog would say, "IT'S BACON!"

According to the NYPD, this:

bacon222.jpg

is a hate crime if left laying around on the ground.

Always playing the victim, Muslim leaders are equating this "hate crime" with placing burning crosses on a black person's lawn or painting swastikas on a Synagogue:

Police computer experts are trying to locate the identity of that person, whom Muslim organizers of the prayer service said was clearly trying to taunt Muslims through intimidation, like other symbols disturbing to African-Americans or Jews.

“Whether burning crosses or swastikas, a small minority are trying to threaten other people,” said Muneer Awad, executive director of the New York chapter of the Council on Islamic Relations.

Who knew the bacon in my fridge invoked imagery akin to lynchings and the holocaust?

More of my hate below the fold.

Well, it kind of looks to me like O-I-H-I...

The funniest thing is that the initial reaction of the left wing media was to come out defending Obama by claiming the picture was photoshopped. Had Romney, or anyone closely associated with his campaign, made such a mistake, there would have been absolutely no query of its authenticity and it would be frontpage news for a week.

The Washington Post has since altered its article and removed the tweets about it being photoshopped. Fortunately, The Washington Examiner saved screen shots.

CAIR's Advocacy Director Promotes Anti-Americanism and Jew Hatred at DC Rally

Investigative Project:

laims of Jewish control of the media and American politics and alleged war-mongering by Israel and America dominated speeches Friday at an Iranian-inspired rally in Washington, D.C.

731_large.jpg

"If you love America, you love lying, you love rape, you love murder, you love killing," said Abdul Alim Musa, imam of Washington D.C.'s Masjid Al-Islam and head of a separatist movement called As-Sabiqun. "And then, the Zionist, diabolical, sinister Israeli. Nobody in history, they cry about some Holocaust, we had five or ten people get killed."

Its not us that loves killing, how many times have we been told by Muslims that "we love death as much as you love life." To explain and justify Jihad and terrorism, hmmmm?

If you'r not familiar with Imam Musa..

Abdul Alim was born in Arkansas in 1945 but grew up in Oakland, California during the 1960s. It was during this period that he associated with H. Rap Brown (Imam Jamil Al-Amin), who later converted to Islam.

Having set up a drug dealing operation in Colombia, Musa was arrested on charges including heroin smuggling, currency smuggling and assaulting a federal agent. After evading the authorities for several years, Musa fled to Algeria, where he came in contact with several self-exiled Black Panther leaders such as Eldridge Cleaver. After returning to the US, he turned himself in and was eventually incarcerated at the U.S. Federal Penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kan., among other institutions.

While in prison, Musa converted to orthodox Islam...

Of course he blamed his spreading of Heroin in the black community on da Jooos.

Its not the first time we've caught CAIR hanging with the Jihadi crowd.

Wow: Inside the Sick World of Google's Censors

This is pretty messed up. Mostly this guy was exposed to the sickest of the sick: child pornography. He tells how all of Google's censors are contract employees and how none of them was ever picked up by the company.

I can kind of see that maybe Google has a point. The author tells about how he realized that after being exposed to up to 15k horrifying images a day that maybe he needed therapy.

Do you really think another ten years of that exposure is healthy?

But thrown in there is this, about the guy assigned to looking at al Qaeda videos:

But no one talks about it. Like the guy I knew at YouTube. He was the guy who knew everything about child porn, knew everything about beheadings. I worked with him very closely and every time a new video by Al Qaeda came up, he was the first guy to see it. He had to see it for everybody. But he was a contractor and they didn’t hire him. He has no idea why. His manager called the recruiters and said, do you have any idea what this guy does? They had no idea. If you’re a contractor, you’re just a name and a department.
This actually might explain a thing or two about Google's on-again off-again erratic behavior in taking down jihadi videos. If there's just one or two (day and night shift) guys assigned to deciding which videos are legitimately pro-terrorism and which aren't, and those people get replaced every single year, then perhaps we have a case of no institutional memory and simple lack of knowledge about the subject.

But what's so revealing in this article is that it shows bad corporate practice on Google's part. Yes, Google should be held liable for any and all acts of terrorism in which at least part of the inspiration came through YouTube videos.

Perhaps having contractors rotate in and out might be good when it comes to kiddie porn. But you'd think that the same rule of mental health wouldn't apply to terrorist videos, the vast majority of which would be simple propaganda and not acts of horrific violence.

Thanks to Tim.

Saudi Cleric: Holocaust "A Myth Of Tremendous Proportions"...

No doubt, another favorite cleric of our resident, who lives in mommies basement, Islamist troll Xariif

[ACLJ]A disturbing new video has surfaced featuring an interview with a prominent Saudi Arabian Islamic Cleric by the name of Salman Al-Ouda. In his chilling words, Al-Ouda casually dismisses the Holocaust, saying it has become “a myth of tremendous proportions.”

Without hesitation, Al-Ouda went on to claim that “the role of the Jews is to wreak destruction, to wage war, and to practice deception and extortion.” And that the Jewish people “believe that they have the right to kill anyone who does not adhere to their religion.”

Named in the top 500 most influential Muslims in the world, Salman Al-Ouda is currently a member of the International Union for Muslim Scholars and on its Board of Trustees. He is also director of the Arabic edition of the website Islam Today, appears on a number of TV shows, and authors newspaper articles.

With over a million Twitter followers, Al-Ouda is considered to be one of Saudi Arabia’s most prominent religious spokespersons[More....]

Police Charge Nebraska Woman with False Report

I thought I was following up on an earlier post. But no, here's yet another Munchausen's sufferer.

CNN: A Nebraska "hate crime" that targeted an openly gay woman and that triggered responses from candlelight vigils locally to Facebook postings of support nationwide was staged by the alleged victim, authorities said Tuesday as they charged the woman with lying to police.

Charlie Rogers -- a former basketball player for the University of Nebraska who identifies herself as lesbian -- told police that three masked men entered her home on July 22, stripped her, tied her down, and carved homophobic slurs into her body before attempting to set her and the house on fire.

But the Lincoln Police Department said Tuesday that "the physical evidence conflicted with Charlie Rogers' version of events" and that "extensive investigation revealed numerous inconsistencies."

Tampa police find bricks, pipes & other "suspicious" items on rooftop just days before Republican convention

NBPP/Occupy/Anarchist's - hey, they found our stash?

TAMPA, Fla. - Tampa police said Tuesday that they confiscated pipes, bricks and other "suspicious" items from the rooftop of a downtown building located about a mile from where next week's Republican National Convention will be held.

Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor said she believes the items were put there by protesters for use during RNC demonstrations. She added that some RNC-related graffiti was also found at the building, but wouldn't elaborate.

"It is disconcerting but it's not surprising," she said. "This is normally how things proceed leading up to a large event."

Tampa will host the RNC at a downtown stadium from Aug. 27-30.[More...]

Radical Islam Joins the DNC

No, I'm not kidding:

radical islam_dnc convention.png
[Breeanne Howe/RedState]Starting at the end of this month the Democratic National Convention will open with a focus on Islam. 20,000 Muslims are expected to attend according to the Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs (BIMA), the national Muslim American non-profit coordinating the two days of events they claim are non-political. ”Jumah at the DNC” begins August 29 and will start with a Friday afternoon jummah prayer followed by other unnamed programs and events, leading up to the Islamic Regal Banquet. The following day will be an all day Islamic Cultural and Fun Fest which will include discussions on the topics of Islamaphobia, Anti-Shariah, Middle Eastern Crisis, Patriot Act, National Defense Authorization Act and more. The purpose, according to BIMA, is to attract national and international attention to the plight of American Muslims and to hold political parties accountable for issues that affect them. However, not all Muslims feel that BIMA represents them and M. Zuhdi Jasser M.D., Founder and President of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, has expressed serious concerns.
It is troubling that the Democratic National Convention has decided to promote and lend its name and national political platform to the organizers of the “Jummah at the DNC”. The leaders of this event – Jibril Hough and Imam Siraj Wahhaj as advertised are no moderates. They are radicals. These individuals embrace Islamist supremacy and have demonstrated support for radical ideologies.

A quick Google search by the DNC would have shown them that Hough and Wahhaj are leaders in the separatist American Islamist movement. While they may be able to get a few thousand Muslims to attend the event, they are NOT going to be mainstream Muslims. Most will likely come from Hough and Wahhaj’s radical networks that have long been entrenched in the Charlotte area. Make no mistake they are part of the Islamist movement.

This is not about their right of assembly; this group under a different name pulled the same stunt at the US capitol in 2009 claiming 20k and getting 2-3k. THIS IS ABOUT the DNC calling this an “official function” listing these radicals as typical of the DNC community and more importantly about this organization speaking out AS representing supposedly typical American Muslims (or “Mainstream”).

If that is who the DNC is consorting with then all Americans, Democrats should be concerned. There are many patriotic Muslims who are part of both parties, and when radical ideologues like this do a demonstration of “solidarity” in the name of our faith and choose an imam like Siraj Wahhaj who I saw with my own eyes in 1995 seditiously say it his duty and our duty as Muslims to replace the US Constitution with the Quran- then we need to speak up!

Their jummah (group) prayer is supposedly against the Patriot Act, the NYPD, and Islamophobia and is actually NOT about our democracy but about empowering their Islamist and MB (Muslim Brotherhood) sympathetic groups into the very fabric of the political system so that Americans become anesthetized. We need American Muslims to speak up and marginalize these radicals. The DNC needs to understand and reject them because of their radical history and ideas.

The Canadian Boxer Turned Terrorist Killed in Dagestan

Canadian boxer terrorist William Plotnikov, right, in Dagestan

One thing about Russia, they kill 'em and bag 'em, cased closed:

In the video he shot inside his hut in the mountains of Dagestan last winter, William Plotnikov narrated as he panned from the black flag of jihad to three bearded rebels and their assault rifles.

Then he turned the camera on himself.

“I ask Allah that the next season he’ll give us the opportunity to kill as many kafirs [non-believers] as we can, just to shred them to pieces,” William said. “Allah is almighty.”

Watching the clip on the computer in his apartment north of Toronto last week, Vitaly Plotnikov looked both heartbroken and perplexed. It was hard for him to accept that this was his son.

“It’s just like a different person to me,” he said.

Russian security forces announced last month that they had killed William, a 23-year-old Canadian, during a gun battle in Dagestan[ More...]

Israel, America Bashed at Iranian-Inspired DC Rally

www.algemeiner.com screen capture 2012-8-21-20-7-39.jpg

Islamist maggots do what maggots do, they eat sh*t:

Claims of Jewish control of the media and American politics and alleged war-mongering by Israel and America dominated speeches Friday at an Iranian-inspired rally in Washington, D.C.

“If you love America, you love lying, you love rape, you love murder, you love killing,” said Abdul Alim Musa, imam of Washington D.C.’s Masjid Al-Islam and head of a separatist movement called As-Sabiqun. “And then, the Zionist, diabolical, sinister Israeli. Nobody in history, they cry about some Holocaust, we had five or ten people get killed.”

Similar rallies were held in New York, Chicago, Detroit and other cities. The rallies were promoted by American University’s Students for Justice in Palestine chapter, and through personal Twitter posts by Cyrus McGoldrick (@CyrusMcGoldrick...ed], advocacy director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) New York chapter.

Resolutions adapted by Quds Day organizers endorse Hamas rule and call for a “one-state solution” to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The “one-state” idea is a non-violent means of eliminating Israel, because the greater number of Palestinians would eliminate Israel as a Jewish state. “We support a peaceful dismantling of the Zionist State and a referendum with participation from the Christians, Jews and Muslims within the present day borders of the Zionist State, as well as participation from Palestinians within the occupied territories and refugee camps scattered across the region in deciding their fate,” a resolution reads.

The resolutions dismiss Palestinian terrorism as “side issues.”[More...]

Now I know why Xariif has been spamming posts today about the Holocaust, he follows these Islamist assmaggots.

I guess that makes Xariif a assmaggot too!

Can Civilized People Let a Sociopath Like Tamimi be Adulated?

tammimi terrorist bitch.jpg
Ahlam Tamimi, Mass Murderess

Planned and help carry out a suicide bombing at the Sbarro Restaurant in downtown Jerusalem on Aug 9th, 2001. 16 civilians were killed, including 7 children:

sbarro victims.jpg
Image source: Israeli Frontline

130 others were wounded.

Tamimi was released from a Israeli prison on October 2011 in a prisoner swap deal for Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit. She is now a Arabic media darling.

This article is a must read in it's entirety:

Op-ed: The Sbarro murderess is a media star . If you don't speak Arabic, you may not know it, nor whether the Arab world approves. It does.

By Arnold and Frimet Roth

Malki Roth, 15, daughter of the writers, was murdered in the Sbarro bombing planned by the ever-smiling Arab media darling, Ahlam Tamimi.

malka roth.jpg
Malki Roth

What might civilized people be thinking when sociopaths like Tamimi bask in adulation?

After receiving some offline comments on the Tamimi speech we publicized on our blog yesterday, we have a few further thoughts to share. The urge to do this is triggered by a sense that something deeply disturbing is going on; it's being ignored or willfully not noticed by people who ought to be noticing.

When a politician or public figure on our side of the fence makes an ignorant or stupid, smart or incisive statement, particularly when it's about the Arabs (you know the examples), his/her comments are greeted with near-instant analysis and frequently with condemnation from a global array of press and politicians[...]

Now think for a moment about how Ahlam Tamimi and her hundreds of published interviews and speeches are treated by global public opinion. Pay attention in particular to how Arabs view her, since they are her principal audience.

No one - certainly not the woman herself - denies the fact that she planned and carried out a premeditated killing on a large and vicious scale, which was the whole point of doing it.

The law convicted her on the basis that she's a murderer; she says (more or less) that she did it for the freedom and honour of her nation. The fact that she planned to kill and succeeded mightily has never been in dispute.

She does not miss an opportunity to say that it was children, and specifically Jewish children, and even more specifically orthodox Jewish children like ours, who were the target.

She regrets that she did not kill more - it's there in yesterday's video and in numerous other speeches and earlier videos recorded in her Jordanian freedom.

1k Words on the Teleprompter in Chief of the USA

obama-teleprompter.jpg

Okay, maybe more than 1k words since I feel the need to say something about this Scarecrow of a President. Scarecrow was the one who needed a brain, right?

I know some partisans on the right give Obama flack for spending so much time on the campaign trail, raising money, and on the golf courses -- far more time than he governs. But personally I'd much rather that he was engaged in non-governmental activities like sitting in front of a computer and playing Party Bingo all day. Less opportunity for damage that way.

Seriously, does anything better illustrate the Obama President than this photo? It is the perfect allegory of the alleged "smartest man in the room". A guy so smart that the very first opportunity his handlers give him to become unleashed from the teleprompter that he unleashes his now infamous he didn't build that diatribe.

Again, like most human evils suffered financial and human capital in the service of Jewish culture homosexuality was widely spread in the three areas of arts and culture, propaganda and political activists. The specific activities of the established literary awards for writers who write on the subject of homosexuality to the same Zionist political and social support bases in different countries, especially European countries have scope. Based on a survey of the "American Airlines" and the website "Gysyty" has been carried out, the most popular gay city of Tel Aviv is on the ground.

Israel's promotion of homosexuality in the world and is one of the great propaganda like the gay parade is organized in different countries. "Michael Oren," Israel's ambassador to the annual conference of homosexuals in America, "The gay community in Israel, are an integral part of such persons in different sectors of society, including the army, the Knesset, the judiciary, doctors, engineers, teachers and philosophers are seen, Israel is a gay paradise.

Rep. Walsh Response to Homegrown Radical Islamic Terrorism

I missed this on the 15th, but still well worth the watch now:

Transcript below the fold:

Transcript:

Last week I spoke about the threat that radical Islam poses to America.

I've said what I've said hundreds of times,

While the overwhelming majority of Muslim Americans are as peace loving as everyone else, there are radical Islamists right here in the United States trying to kill Americans and destroy this county.

The Committee on Homeland Security, of which I am a member, has held numerous hearings on this issue.

We've heard from countless experts, including Obama Administration officials about this growing homegrown threat from radical Islam.

However, some want to pretend that these threats do not exist.

CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, wants me to apologize for what I said.

It is important to know that The Department of Homeland Security and the FBI have severed all ties with CAIR because of their ties to terrorism.

Let me be clear... .

bowing down to political correctness has and will get Americans killed, we must always speak the truth to this threat no matter how politically incorrect.

Yet, Tammy Duckworth agrees with CAIR, when she calls me irresponsible.

Tammy, what exactly did I say that you disagree with?

Yes or no, do you agree with the Obama Administration that there is a homegrown threat that exists from a radical strain of Islam?

Ms Duckworth, if you truly think my remarks are irresponsible, I invite you to join me in a debate on this very issue.

This issue is much too important for sound bites.

Now A Crime: Walking A Dog Near A Muslim Protest

At my "Hate Post" post about bacon being a hate crime because it was left in public place Muslims were planning to gather, a commenter, The Sanity Inspector, asked if arresting people for walking dogs near Mosques was in our dhimmi future.

Some of us laughed at the absurdity (if not, the insane probability) of it. I did. Until I found this:

O Canada, our home and native Islamic land...

BlazingCatFur has the story.

Paul Ryan Tells a PA Crowd He's a Catholic Deer Hunter & Proud To Cling To His Guns & Religion

PaulRyan-with-10pt-Wis_-buck(1).jpg

BAM!.

Ryan just served a direct hit on Obama's comment at a 2008 fundraiser at San Francisco's billionaires row[Zombie]

Here is a transcript of Obama's words (this is an EXACT transcript -- versions posted elsewhere had some minor errors):
You go into some of these small towns in Pennsylvania, a lot of them -- like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them. And they've gone through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. So it's not surprising then that they get bitter, and they cling to guns, or religion, or antipathy toward people who aren't like them, or anti-immigrant sentiment, or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.
Heh

Romney Has a Bain Problem?
Obama Puts Another Bain Alum In His Budget Office

Obama Bane.jpg
Image credit: Bosch Fawstin

My, my:

President Obama’s Office of Management and Budget is turning into something of a Bain alumni reunion, although you won’t hear about it from the president.

Obama picked Jeff Zients to lead the OMB earlier this year, as the attacks on Romney’s Bain Capital career were heating up in the Republican Primary. Zients worked at Bain and Company from 1988-1990, as The Washington Examiner first reported, although his White House biography made no mention of the fact. (Update: Zients’ White House bio now mentions that he worked at Bain, but the biography distributed to reporters when he was picked did not.)[More...]

DaTechGuy: Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan and Cheryl at St. Anselm College

Examiner

Yesterday Mitt Romney held his 100th Town Hall meeting at the quad on St. Anselm College in New Hampshire.

It was the first appearance in the Grannie State for Paul Ryan since being named to the GOP ticket and it generated a lot of excitement among the GOP faithful.

The program began at 10:30 and the "doors" opened at 8:30 but the line began forming long before. When I arrived at the secret service station about 7:15 there was already a large crowd waiting to be admitted. After getting my credentials and setting up I went back and interviewed people in line. Three things stood out in these interviews:

1. The meme we have heard for the last week concerning Paul Ryan was his position on Medicare (The Ryan Plan) would be poison with senior citizens. In the line however seniors where impressed by Paul Ryan, a gentleman named Win Hutchenson attended with his grandchildren saying[...]

3. When I repeated the story of the Obama campaign "intentionally limiting crowd size at their events because of security and cost" concerning wanting smaller crowds" due to cost it consistently produced laughter (Even the clerk at the college book store laughed when I mentioned it when buying batteries for my camera). This can't be good for the Obama campaign.

Survey: Democrats More Racist Than Republicans

Alex over at Marginal Revolution shows that Republicans and Democrats are just about equally racist. Which is odd, because I'm constantly hearing from just about all the powers that be that Republicans have the market on racism cornered.

But as Maetenloch points out, just about equally racist isn't the same thing as equally racist.

It turns out, Democrats are slightly more racist than Republicans.

favor_laws_interracial_marriage.jpg

would_vote_black_president.jpg

Some people may not vote for Barack Obama because he's black just as some won't vote for Mitt Romney because he's Mormon. Bigots, like the poor, will always be with us.

But let us put to rest the myth that Democrats are somehow more enlightened than Republicans on race issues. And then let these statistics assuage the guilt of over educated suburbanites who are thinking they might not vote for Obama this time around but don't dare say it aloud for fear of being thought a bumpkin who has a Klan outfit in hidden in the back of the closet.

Also, I'm banning myself for being a racist.

Gen Martin Dempsey's Plane Damaged From Rocket Attack on Bagram Air Base

Thank goodness General Dempsey wasn't harmed.

Via BBC

An insurgent rocket attack on a US air base in Afghanistan has damaged the plane of America's top military officer while he was on a visit there.

Gen Martin Dempsey, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, was not near the plane at the time but two US maintenance crew were slightly injured.

The attack happened late on Monday night at the US air base in Bagram.

He was in Afghanistan to discuss a growing number of attacks against Nato soldiers by Afghan security personnel.

Gen Dempsey had arrived on Monday in a C-17 transport aircraft which was parked at Bagram.

A statement from Nato's Isaf force said shrapnel from "an indirect fire round" had damaged the plane as well as a Nato helicopter.[More...]

What's with the BBC using lower case for NATO, ISAF? Should I now use Bbc instead of BBC for them?

"Ben Gurion Airport, Israel

A U.S. Jewish immigrant’s child uses the toilet when arriving at Ben Gurion Airport on August 14, 2012, near Tel Aviv, Israel. About 350 immigrants arrived on a special flight from the United States today and were greeted by Prime Minister Netanyahu during a ceremony at the airport.

127 of the new immigrants are expected to join the Israeli army in the next month."[More...]

They later removed the image

Cornhole Watch For Two White Supremacist

David Joseph “Joey” Pedersen 32 & Holly Ann Grigsby 25

F'n Nazi loving scum. "Joey" needs his SWP (aka Supreme White Power), *Hitler and *swastika tattoos scrubbed off him with a dirty wire brush.

Cornhole watch for the bitch? Well, you know.

Via Seattle Times

...The pair is accused of killing Pedersen’s father, David “Red” Pedersen, and stepmother, Leslie “DeeDee” Pedersen, on Sept. 26 in Everett. They’re also accused of killing two men in Oregon and California in the following week.
white supremacist victims.jpg
The victims, image credit: Oregon Live

Grigsby told police they shot the Oregon man “because his last name made them think he was Jewish,” according to charging documents. The California victim was black[..]

*Pedersen has a tattoo of a swastika on his chest above his heart and an image of Adolf Hitler on his stomach

The Federal Indictment is below:

PORTLAND, OR—David Joseph “Joey” Pedersen, 32, and Holly Ann Grigsby, 25, both of Portland, were indicted yesterday for racketeering activity in violation of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, RICO conspiracy, using a firearm in a crime of violence that caused death, kidnapping resulting in death, carjacking resulting in death, transportation of stolen vehicles, aggravated identity theft, credit card fraud, and being a felon in possession of a firearm, Amanda Marshall, U.S. Attorney for the District of Oregon, announced today. The charges all stem from an alleged 10-day crime spree that spanned from Everett, Washington, to Eureka, California, and included four murders.

Grigsby is scheduled to appear for arraignment before a U.S. Magistrate Judge in Seattle on August 20, 2012, at 2:30 p.m. Pedersen’s arraignment will be scheduled in Portland in the near future.

“The indictment in this case alleges horrendous crimes were committed as part of defendants’ white supremacist campaign to kidnap and murder targets on the basis of race, color, religion, and perceived ‘degenerate’ conduct,” said U.S. Attorney Marshall. “These crimes victimize not only individuals and their families, but entire communities. This indictment shows that we will work tirelessly with our federal and state partners to pursue allegations of bigotry and prejudice in order to protect all of our citizens from hate and violence. No one should live in fear of being attacked because of their race, religion, ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability. We hope this indictment brings the victims’ families one step closer to justice.”

The indictment charges that Pedersen and Grigsby were members of a criminal enterprise whose members and associates engaged in acts of violence and other criminal activity to promote a white supremacist movement to “purify” and “preserve” the white race. They are further charged with targeting Jewish leaders, members of prominent Jewish organizations, and other “Zionists” and using the media to publicize their movement in an attempt to spark a revolution. It is alleged that, among other things, Pedersen and Grigsby robbed victims in order to finance the enterprise and obtain cars for transportation and that they murdered victims to eliminate witnesses and avoid apprehension and prosecution. Pedersen and Grigsby are charged with the following crimes and racketeering acts, among others:

the murder, kidnapping, and robbery of Pedersen’s father, David Joseph “Red” Pedersen, of Everett, on September 26, 2011, as well as using a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence that resulted in death, the interstate transportation of Red Pedersen’s stolen vehicle, and credit card fraud and aggravated identify theft based on their use of Red Pedersen’s stolen credit cards;
the murder, kidnapping, and robbery of Pedersen’s stepmother, Leslie “Dee Dee” Pedersen, of Everett, on September 26, 2011, as well as credit card fraud and aggravated identify theft based on their use of Leslie Pedersen’s stolen credit cards;
the murder, kidnapping, and robbery of Cody Faye Myers, of Lafayette, Oregon, on October 1, 2011, as well as carjacking, using a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence that resulted in death, and interstate transportation of a stolen vehicle;
the murder, kidnapping, and robbery of Reginald Clark, of Eureka, on October 3, 2011, as well as using a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence that resulted in death; and
being a felon in possession of a firearm, which includes allegations that Pedersen is an armed career criminal.

“The FBI, along with our local and state law enforcement partners, put great value on protecting every American’s rights to worship freely and live without fear—regardless of race or religion,” said Greg Fowler, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI in Oregon. “Fairness, equality, and dignity are of fundamental importance under the U.S. Constitution, and we work each day to honor and uphold those civil liberties.”

The federal charges stem from an investigation led by the FBI; the Oregon State Police; the Everett Police Department; and the Eureka Police Department, with assistance from the Oregon Department of Corrections; Lincoln County, Oregon Sheriff’s Office; Lincoln County Major Crimes Team; Linn County, Oregon Sheriff’s Office; Benton County, Oregon Sheriff’s Office; Corvallis, Oregon Police Department; Salem, Oregon Police Department, Keizer, Oregon Police Department; California Highway Patrol; Yuba County, California Sheriff’s Office; Portland Police Bureau; U.S. Marshals Service; Tillamook County, Oregon Sheriff’s Office; Philomath, Oregon Police Department; Lebanon, Oregon Police Department; Stayton, Oregon Police Department; Snohomish County, Washington Sheriff’s Office; and the Oregon Department of Justice. This multi-state investigation is ongoing.

The use of a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence which causes death, such as the crimes charged in counts three, five, and 12, carries a maximum penalty of death or consecutive sentences of imprisonment from 10 years to life. Kidnapping and carjacking resulting in death, as charged in counts four and 11, also carry a maximum penalty of death or imprisonment for any number of years up to life. The decision about whether to seek the death penalty will be made personally by the Attorney General of the United States at a later date. The other crimes charged in the indictment carry maximum penalties ranging from 10 years to life imprisonment and up to a $250,000 fine.

An indictment is only an accusation of a crime, and defendants should be presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Jane Shoemaker and Hannah Horsley.

U.S. officials said Monday they seized $150 million connected to a scheme in which entities linked to Hezbollah allegedly used the U.S. financial system to launder money through West Africa and back to the group’s base of Lebanon.

The seizure stems from a civil lawsuit filed last year by federal prosecutors in Manhattan against defunct Lebanese Canadian Bank, or LCB, and two Lebanese exchange houses seeking more than $480 million in funds allegedly derived from drug trafficking and other criminal activity passing through the U.S. financial system.[More...]

An Interview with an anti-Chomskyite

I hate Chomsky. The man is a fool who uses big words to disguise his shallow "theories".

Theories are based on the simple notion that a change in something (X) or some things (X1 + X2) causes a change in something else (Y). It's really not that difficult to understand.

However, Chomsky seems not to get this fundamental notion about the relationship between cause and affect.

Why? Because Chomsky, literally, blames America for everything bad that has happened in the last 100 years. Which is a problem because different affects (Y) cannot be attributed to the same cause (X). The same is true of the inverse: Different causes (X) cannot be attributed to the same affect (Y).

So, when America acts (X) it causes something bad (Y). When America doesn't act (X) it causes something bad (Y). Both cannot be simultaneously true.

Chomsky doesn't have theories, he has a world view. A simple one. America is bad, mmmmkay.

Michael J. Totten interviews Benjamin Kerstein about his new book Diary of an Anti-Chomskyite. Here's an excerpt:

I think people come to Chomsky and essentially worship him for precisely that reason. He allows them to feel justified in their refusal to think. They never have to ask themselves any difficult questions or provide any difficult answers. It’s a form of intellectual cowardice essentially, but I'm sure you can see its appeal....

In any event, blaming anything and everything bad that happens in the world on the United States has always been Chomsky's default position. So once he'd exhausted all other possibilities of escape, that's what he fell back on. And he'll keep doing it until his dying day. You will never get a mea culpa from him on anything, and certainly not on Cambodia, which is probably the biggest disgrace of his career.

It's a good read, check it out.

Fake Texts Causes Mass Panic in India

India is accusing Pakistan of orchestrating mass panic among migrants who fled Muslim/Hindu - Muslim/not-the-right-kind-of-Muslim conflicts. Apparently mass texts were sent around showing images of dead bodies claiming that Muslim were going to kill the immigrants for (insert grievance of the day here). and although the entire thing was a hoax, apparently people took the threat seriously enough that it caused mass panic and migration:

A day earlier the ministry's second-ranking official said doctored images of bodies had been messaged to thousands of migrants from India's north-east living in big cities further south, including Chennai, Mumbai, Pune and Bangalore.

Authorities said misleading text messages and other social media began circulating last week with warnings that Muslims would attack students and migrants from the north-east.

Tens of thousands of people hurriedly boarded overcrowded trains to return to their home region as Indian leaders pleaded for calm and the government banned bulk mobile texting.

Those fleeing feared reprisals stemming from ethnic clashes in the north-eastern state of Assam in the past few months, which have killed 77 people and displaced more than 400,000

3rd strike in 24 hours kills two in North Waziristan
Senior Taliban Killed While Group Gathered for Execution (BUMPED)

They hit the clean up crew.. ...

Now I'm really curious as to who was the target.

“At least two militants were killed and two others wounded when a US drone fired two missiles at the site of this morning’s attack where militants were removing the wreckage of their two destroyed vehicles,” a security official told AFP.

Another security official confirmed the attack and casualties.

The Shawal district of North Waziristan region is considered a bastion of Taliban and al Qaeda-linked militants.

Earlier today, Pakistani intelligence officials said missiles fired from unmanned American spy planes hit two vehicles near the Afghan border, killing at least seven militants.
UPDATE by RS:America, f*ck yeah.
Afghan and coalition officials confirmed today that a senior Taliban leader, Maulawi Nur Mohammad, and his deputy, Atiqullah were among the dozens of heavily armed insurgents killed in a precision airstrike, in a remote area of Chapah Darah district, Kunar province, yesterday.
And
A coalition airstrike killed more than 20 Taliban insurgents after they had gathered to oversee a public execution in northeastern Afghanistan on Saturday, Afghan officials said.

Pakistan: Even The Disabled Aren't Safe From Blasphemy Laws

Random Jawa image of So did Mohammed

"A furious crowd" of Shariah loving Pakistanis ordered this disabled girl be punished. Cowardly Pakistani police complied:

Pakistan's president has ordered a report into the arrest of a girl with mental disabilities, reportedly as young as 11, accused of desecrating pages of the Koran.

Police say the girl was arrested last week in a Christian area of the capital, Islamabad, after a furious crowd demanded she be punished.

Officials said the girl could not properly answer police questions.

Her parents have been taken into protective custody following threats.

Many other Christian families have fled the neighbourhood after unrest erupted. Reports say that police arrested her under pressure from the large crowd.

It is thought that the girl has Down's syndrome, which is a congenital condition that causes various degrees of learning difficulties and certain physical abnormalities.

Apparently, the girl had pages of "a" Koran in a garbage bag or something.

Update: I thought this was a double post, but as it turns out it isn't. Howie's post has the original arrest report

Border Town Caught Lying About Data to Make Crime go "Down"

They say that there are lies, damn lies, and statistics. That isn't true. It's a myth that statistics can be made to "say anything you want them to". In fact, the reason we use statistics is to obtain less biased results then with non-empirical studies.

This doesn't mean that statistical analysis are perfect, just that they are usually less flawed than most of the alternatives.

But that is based on several assumptions about the statistics. The most important being that they are accurately reported.

So, when a Sheriff's department along the Texas/Mexico border actively under-reports crime then I'd say we have a problem:

But how accurate are the statistics that the local law enforcement agencies send their states and ultimately to the federal government? PJM/PJTV has obtained exclusive hidden camera video from inside the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office. In this video, a crime analyst – the person responsible for entering official data into the Uniform Crime Reporting system from the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office – admits that the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office manipulates its crime statistics systematically.
This is important for two reasons. First, it's fraud and the Sheriff in question is an elected Democrat. Second, it skews the crime data -- data used by President Obama to claim that we don't need tougher border enforcement because, Look, crime is down along the border!

READ THE REST.

Pakistani Muslims Thirst for 11-year-old Christian Girl's Blood

The worlds leading producer of unprocessed human excrement, Pakistans wonderful Muslime citizens want to set her on fire for "burning a Koran." Which as we all know, even an inaccurate rumor of a burned Koran is enough.

An 11-year-old Christian girl has been arrested and detained on charges of blasphemy for allegedly desecrating pages from the Quran in the Pakistan capital Islamabad.

According to a statement released by the President's office on Sunday, the girl, identified as Ramsha, was accused by a local resident of burning pages of the Muslim holy text after she gathered paper as fuel for cooking.

Niazi said that 150 people had gathered on Friday where the neighborhood's Christian population lived and threatened to burn down their houses.
"The mob wanted to burn the girl to give her a lesson," he told CNN.

Other Christian families living in the area have fled fearing a backlash, he added.

And they wonder why the rest of the world describes Pakistan as savages?

6 more 'militants' killed in drone strike in North Waziristan

Not every day you see 5 drones swarm one vehicle...very curious.

Roggio

The US launched the second drone strike today in the past 24 hour in an area known as a terrorist haven in the Taliban-controlled tribal agency of North Waziristan.

The remotely piloted Predators or the more advanced Reapers fired several missiles at a vehicle in the Mana area in the Shawal Valley in North Waziristan, according to AFP and Geo News. Five drones were seen circling over the attack site before and after the strike.

Pakistani officials said that between four and six "militants" were killed in the strike, but did not disclose their identities. No senior al Qaeda or Taliban leaders were reported killed.

The strike is the second in Shawal in the past 24 hours. On Saturday, the drones hit a compound in the village of Shuwedar in the Shawal Valley in North Waziristan, killing six more "militants," according to Pakistani officials. Pakistan's Foreign Ministry objected to the earlier strike in Shawal, and called the US incursions "a violation of its sovereignty and territorial integrity and also in contravention of international law," according to Dawn.

They really wanted to be sure someone was dead.

Dear Thugs: Don't Argue With a Woman Holding a Gun

Or her ax and knife wielding daughters

Martha Lewis of Dora, Ala. told WVTM-TV it was about 3 a.m. Tuesday morning when she heard a loud noise, which turned out to be someone kicking in her door. Lewis said she called the police and grabbed her gun, then went to her daughters’ room and told them each to get something to defend themselves with. She said one grabbed an ax and one got a butcher knife.

They were at the top of the stairs when they saw a man standing there at the bottom.

“I knew when he stepped on the landing that I would have to shoot him,” Lewis told the station. “He starts like coming up the stairs and he said, ‘would you shoot me?‘ And I said ’I don’t want to have to but I will.’”

Ignoring her warnings, the man kept coming — and that’s when Lewis said she fired.[More....]

Its getting harder and harder to dislike the al-Qaeda supporting Salafis these days.

Samir Kuntar, the disgusting child-murdering terrorist who is considered a hero to the Palestinian Arabs, visited Tunisia this week.

And he was almost lynched.

...The reason for the attack was that Kuntar enraged the Salafists by criticizing the Syrian uprising and praising the Assad regime in Syria, which has been killing tens of thousands of its citizens over the past year and a half.

Free Speech Victory in Germany: Mo-Toons OK in Protest

I'd like to see all hate-speech laws repealed everywhere, but this is a step in the right direction. A German court has said that displaying offensive cartoons of the Muslim prophet Muhammad does not constitute hate-speech:

The court said it “rejected the urgent complaint filed by three Islamic mosque congregations to prevent the ‘citizens’ movement Pro Deutschland from showing so-called Mohammed caricatures in front of their premises during demonstrations on Saturday”.

It said the cartoons were protected as “artistic freedom” and could not legally be considered as abuse of a religious group.

“Simply showing the Mohammed cartoons does not qualify as a call to hatred or violence against a specific segment of the population,” the court said.

Pure Insanity

(NSFW!)

From The Huffinton Post (all emphasis mine):

Frantic wives searched for missing loved ones, President Jacob Zuma rushed home from a regional summit and some miners vowed a fight to the death Friday as police announced a shocking casualty toll from the previous day's shooting by officers of striking miners: 34 dead and 78 wounded.

Wives of miners at the Lonmin platinum mine northwest of Johannesburg took the place of dead and wounded husbands on Friday in staging a protest. But this time instead of asking for higher wages as the miners had done, the women demanded to know why police had opened fire Thursday with automatic rifles, pistols and shotguns on the strikers, many of whom had been armed with spears, machetes and clubs. Police said at a news conference that it was in self-defense, noting that strikers even possessed a pistol taken from a police officer they had beaten to death on Monday.

At least 10 other people were killed during the week-old strike, including two police officers battered to death by strikers and two mine security guards burned alive when strikers set their vehicle ablaze.

You can see in the video above, the armed miners did charge the police. The police had every right to defend themselves.

Some of you may be wondering why I used a liberal rag like The Huffington Post as a source. I surfed over there out of curiosity. I wanted to see how liberals are viewing this very clear instance of self defense by police.

That's where the real insanity begins. While a very few commenters justified the deadly forced used by police, a majority blamed corporate greed. Here's a sampling:

"This is just sickening. The world wide 1% are determined to take the most money to their graves and in doing so they are killing, destroying, maiming and forcing their will on everyone else."

"Now, that's how the 1% handles a strike!"

"This is massacre. The police chief has to be removed and those that guided this massacre detained and charged."

"If by removed...you mean tried, convicted, and executed then I agree."

"What they need to do now, to ensure that this never happens again, is to kill as many of the "police" that took part in this. They really do need to kill them. Kill them in their sleep."

"This is the Republicans vision for the future of the US. They want to eliminate unions so this happens instead. "

"Don't you just loooove the smell of guns and capitalism in the morning?"

"This was sick. The police should have had rubber bullets and more options other than lethal force. "

"Fascism.........................alive and well............."

"Shocking! Why would they do this? It benefits no one. Wreaks of Koch Brother tactics against Unions and workers rights unfortunately."

"Even if the miners did act violently, there was no reason for the police to use that amount of deadly force against them. There are MANY non lethal riot and crowd control weapons available to police"

Read more insanity.

UPDATE: SS Has 295 Armed Criminal Investigators

A followup to a post a couple of days ago about the Social Security Administration ordering 170k rounds of .357 hollow points. Apparently, the ammo isn't for security guards but for their criminal fraud investigation division. They have 295 fraud investigators who are federal law enforcement officers.

170k/295 = 576 rounds per agent. That's not that much, even if their shooting range qualifications only come quarterly -- not monthly as I had supposed, like many LEOs. It may seem like a lot for those who don't know much about guns or law enforcement, but trust me this is not a big number. And the fact that they are hollow points would only shock people who know literally nothing about the kind of ammo any one who carries a gun.

So, case closed.

Dave Chapelle: Prophet

I think we already covered the story of a leader of Hungary's openly antisemitic party who is Jewish. If not, mea culpa -- I intended to.

Anyway, someone sent me the link this morning and I couldn't help but think of that Chapelle Show skit about the blind black KKK leader.

Man, I wish Chapelle hadn't freaked out and stop doing his show. I miss his stuff.

On a related note I was listening to Fresh Air on NPR this morning and they were rerunning an interview with Sacha Baron Cohen about his movie The Dictator. Cohen is supposed to be some kind of "brave" comedian.

All I could think, though, during the interview was just how big of a giant pussy he is. There's nothing brave about what he does. He simply takes conventional liberal wisdom as a matter of course and then makes people who don't agree with him out to be fools.

There's nothing brave about agreeing with all of your peers and the people you surround yourself with. It's sycophantic.

So, like I said, he's a big pussy.

Funny sometimes -- I thought Borat was hilarious, his other films? Not so much -- but not brave.

Chappelle on the other hand? I have to hand it to him, he set out to offend every one and did. Even if that meant challenging conventional liberal wisdom.

Russian judge has found three members of the provocative punk band Pussy Riot guilty of hooliganism, in one of the most closely watched cases in recent Russian history.
We sure hope they don't get a full seven years for what amounts to disturbing the peace.

That and also that Nadezhda Tolokonnikova gets a really hot cellmate to comfort her during the long cold Russian winter.

New Racist Code Word: "Anger"

According to MSNBC's co-host Touré, the word "anger" is the newest racist code word that white people use to refer to black people. He called it a "niggerization" of Obama:

Obama is Not His Brother's Keeper ... Literally

Leftists love to use the violent force of government to take away your money and give it to the poor. They think this substitutes for the moral imperative of taking care of the needy. Some leftist Christians also mistake the force of government with the voluntary nature of charity. The imagine the state as an extension of the church.

Barack Obama claims he's a Christian. That's his claim.

With that in mind let us examine the Judeo-Christian imperative to take care of one's brother. I seem to recall one Pharisees asking Jesus what that meant. Jesus' answer was the parable of the Good Samaritan. The message being something like every one, even your enemy, is your brother.

But you know who is also your brother? Your brother.

Dinesh D’Souza:

A few days ago I received a call from a man I recently met named George. He was a bit flustered, and soon informed me that his young son was sick with a chest condition. He pleaded with me to send him $1,000 to cover the medical bills. Since George was at the hospital I asked him to let me speak to a nurse, and she confirmed that George’s son was indeed ill. So I agreed to send George the money through Western Union. He was profusely grateful. But before I hung up I asked George, “Why are you coming to me?” He said, “I have no one else to ask.” Then he said something that astounded me, “Dinesh, you are like a brother to me.”

Actually, George has a real life brother who just happens to be the president of the United States. (George Obama is the youngest of eight children sired by Barack Obama Sr.) George’s brother is a multimillionaire and the most powerful man in the world. Moreover, George’s brother has framed his re-election campaign around the “fair share” theme that we owe obligations to those who are less fortunate.

One of Obama’s favorite phrases comes right out of the Bible: “We are our brother’s keeper.” Yet he has not contributed a penny to help his own brother. And evidently George does not believe, even in times of emergency, that he can turn to his brother in the White House for help.

Perhaps Barack Obama was absent from Rev. Wright's church the week of that Good Samaritan sermon the same way he was absent all those times his former pastor damned America?

Not So Fast: Hezbollah iPad, iPhone, Android App Back

Ugh. They're ba-aack:

Hezbollah’s smart­phone appli­ca­tion, launched at the end of July but promptly removed by Apple and Google, has been rere­leased for the Android oper­at­ing sys­tem and is “back on Ipad and Iphone,” accord­ing to Al-Manar, the Lebanese ter­ror­ist organization’s satel­lite tele­vi­sion station....

n an effort to avoid dis­trib­u­tor poli­cies and con­trol, the new appli­ca­tions are down­load­able directly from Al-Manar’s web­site, which is hosted British server. The web­site also pro­vides instruc­tions, along with screen shots, on con­fig­ur­ing Android phones to accept appli­ca­tions “not sourced in Android Market.”

Wouldn't it just be easier to kill some people here? No, I am being serious. And by "kill" I do mean, you know, kill. I have no problem killing any one in Hezbollah. You join, you forfeit your life. Even if you are a so-called "journalist" or webmaster for the terror group.

The good news:

Facebook management has ordered the removal of pages belonging to Hezbollah and its Al-Manar television network, Israel Radio reported on Thursday.

According to the report, the decision to ban Hezbollah from the popular social networking site was made due to Facebook's policy against terror incitement and hate propagation. The U.S. State Department included Al-Manar on its Terrorism Exclusion List in December 2004.

Oh My, Media Matters Eric Boehlert Steps In It Again: "former Navy SEALs don't have guts"....

A Navy SEAL responds

Scott Taylor is a former Navy SEAL of eight and a half years, and was a 2010 GOP candidate for Congress. He is now a member of the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund.

Taylor responded to Boehlert’s tweet in a phone interview with The Daily Caller and said that his group of special forces operators is “clearly not gutless.”

“We’re clearly not gutless. We’re in the public right now, completely out there,” Taylor said.

“Everything’s out there. It’s interesting how the left is trying to frame this as a partisan issue. I don’t care what party people are from within our group,” Taylor said. “This issue is about national security leaks.”[More...]

Wait ... The Feds Haven't Talked to Jon Corzine Yet?

Ummm, I couldn't help but notice this little doozy of an admission while I was scanning Hot Air this AM:

A criminal investigation into the collapse of the brokerage firm MF Global and the disappearance of about $1 billion in customer money is now heading into its final stage without charges expected against any top executives.

After 10 months of stitching together evidence on the firm’s demise, criminal investigators are concluding that chaos and porous risk controls at the firm, rather than fraud, allowed the money to disappear, according to people involved in the case....

In the most telling indication yet that the MF Global investigation is winding down, federal authorities are seeking to interview the former chief of the firm, Jon S. Corzine, next month, according to the people involved in the case. Authorities hope that Mr. Corzine, who is expected to accept the invitation, will shed light on the actions of other employees at MF Global.

They've been investigating MF Global for TEN MONTHS and STILL HAVEN'T TALKED TO THE HEAD OF MF GLOBAL, FORMER DEMOCRATIC SENATOR JON CORZINE?????

SHOULDN'T HE HAVE BEEN THE FIRST PERSON THEY TALKED TO??

WTF?!?!?!!!!!

Hotel Owner Found Liable for Evicting Juice for Being too Hebrew

For the record, I am squarely in the camp that believes that private property means private. Which means I believe that business owners should be able to exclude any one they want for any reason. Let fools act foolishly and let the chips fall where they may.

I do not believe government has the right to force us to be good.

But as long as laws exist protecting people from discrimination, I guess it's a good thing that in this case it was applied equally. However, I have to wonder to what extent the court came to the conclusion that the Muslim owner was liable because that is how the law ought to be applied? Or, to what extent this seemingly fair conclusion was reached because the victim was part of a minority class?

What we have here is a case of one minority group -- a Muslim -- showing bigotry toward another minority group -- Jews. To the liberal mindset, the victim is always the group with less power -- the minority. So, to them, justice is about equalizing power.

What would have happened, I wonder, if the victim had been part of a class that held power -- a white guy who was a one-percenter?

I know the law as it currently stands forbids most types of discrimination, but this isn't a question of the law -- it's a question of how judges apply the law. And given that many judges share in the leftist perspective of justice as equalizing power differentials, I just can't help but wonder if the outcome would have been different with different plaintiffs and defendants?

Sorry, I wax philosophical. Classes start next week and I'm in the middle of preparing for a section of Constitutional Law. The more I teach it the more I realize just how dumb lawyers and judges can be.

Virginia Bakery #IBuiltThis "Crumb & Get It Cookie Company": Sorry, No Plug For Joe Biden

Crumbandgetit.jpg
Image via the company's Facebook page[Note update]

BigG

Vice President Joe Biden’s advance team approached the owner of a local Virginia mom and pop bakery -- “Crumb and Get It” -- and asked him if the bakery could host an event for Biden on Wednesday[...]

"This is an opportunity of a lifetime but essentially I said 'No offense to you or the campaign but I just decline you guys coming in here,” McMurray told reporters. “At that time she said 'Are you sure? There's going to be a lot of press, a lot of activity,’"

McMurray said “very simply, ‘you didn’t build that’” was the reason why he declined the invitation, noting that, “speaking of small businesses and entrepreneurs all across this country and actually last night my wife was up all night. No sleep, she's worked a full 24 hours."

Good on him!

Crumb & Get It website

Update: The picture above from the cookie companies FB page is of Ross Murty, co-owner of the Village Corner Deli, who did host the Biden event....and wore that shirt!

Ross Murty likes business, but he doesn’t like President Obama.

And so the co-owner of the Village Corner Deli here agreed to cater Obama’s visit Wednesday — but not before donning a T-shirt blaring the message: “Government didn’t build my business. I did.”

Sweet

Update II: Just like clockwork, Obamabots/leftist's are trying to destroy Ross Murty's business.

Dishonorable Disclosures: How the Obama Administration Puts Politics Above National Security

Wow, this is a great video. I've been hearing about it for a few days, but actually watching it changed my mind as to its importance. You have to watch this. If not now, later than. Pass it around to your friends.

Here's how it's described:

Intelligence and Special Operations forces are furious and frustrated at how President Obama and those in positions of authority have exploited their service for political advantage. Countless leaks, interviews and decisions by the Obama Administration and other government officials have undermined the success of our Intelligence and Special Operations forces and put future missions and personnel at risk.

The unwarranted and dangerous public disclosure of Special Forces Operations is so serious -- that for the first time ever -- former operators have agreed to risk their reputations and go 'on the record' in a special documentary titled "Dishonorable Disclosures." Its goal is to educate America about serious breaches of security and prevent them from ever happening again.

Thanks to Blackfive for reminding me of this.

UPDATE: Trust me on this one. Just get through to about the 7 or 8 minute mark, and it just lays it all on the line. How the White House put lives in jeopardy by leaking sensitive information for political gain.

The takeaway quote about the Obama Administration's leaks which lead to the arrest and conviction of the Pakistani doctor who provided key intelligence which led to the bin Laden raid comes from retired CIA officer Fred Rustman:

What was done was stupid. But it was more than stupid because it was done with malice aforethought. It was done for a political purpose. And that's what I find terrible.
Seriously, go watch this. When you're done, send it to everyone you know.

Arab Spring! Two Rockets Hit Southern Israel

Eilat is the southernmost town in Israel, a little outcrop of civilization wedged between Egypt's Sinai and Jordan. I'm guessing the attack came from the Egyptian side where, as you know, al Qaeda and their fellow-travelers have a solid foothold:

An Eilat Sub-District Police spokesman said two massive explosions were heard in Israel's southern-most city Wednesday evening. The IDF confirmed that following reports of blasts, forces have begun scouring the area to check whether the explosions were a result of a Grad rocket attack.

Social Security Administration Prepares For Martial Law Civil Unrest

UPDATE By DMartyr: Okay, when I initially read this story, it did shock me. I associate the Social Security Administration with providing benefits to the elderly. So, at first, I didn't see a need for a large quantity of ammunition. But after reading responses, both in comments and Rusty's update, I see this really is an over-blown story. The SSA does employ law enforcement agents. They do have a fraud division that may need and use firearms. And the number of bullets ordered is relatively few if they are also used in training.

I concede my initial concern was unfounded and I apologize for posting this story. In my zeal to provide thought provoking topics here at The Jawa Report, I fail to research properly. I will leave the post up for the sake of discourse.

UPDATE: Changed some links and added the SSA request form (under the fold)

ssa_ammo.jpg
(Click to link to General Services Administration Request Page)

With hollow points:

First the DHS needed 450 million rounds of ammunition, then the NOAA requested 46,000 rounds, now we've discovered an online request at FBO.Gov calling for 174,000 rounds of ammunition for the Social Security Administration.

The request actually calls for 174K .357 hollow points that arguably have as much stopping power as any bullet out there, and hollow point to do as much damage to soft tissue as possible on top of that.

WTF? Okay, now I'm scared. Obama is not going to give up his power without a fight. And he doesn't care how many of us he has to take out to keep it.

In case some of you are unfamiliar with weapons and bullets, below the fold I've included two three very short videos, one showing the result of normal ammunition and the other showing the result of hollow points. Also below the fold, the Social Security Administrations request for the ammunition.

Related:
Obama Administration Prepares For Martial Law Domestic Riots During Election Season

UPDATE by Rusty: Just to make it clear, I do not think anything nefarious is going on here. Not at all. DMartyr got the link from Drudge who, as you know, can be a bit of a paranoid from time to time. Like all the recent links reporting *gasp* drones over US soil. As if somehow that was more shocking than the number of police helicopters already in the air.

Anyway, to put the numbers above in context think of how many Social Security offices there are in the US. Hundreds and hundreds. And think about how many of the larger ones have to have security guards. And think about how much 174,000 divided by the hundreds of security guards there are and you actually get a low number.

Some rough math yields something in the range from 150 - 300 rounds per guard.

Hell, I fire that much on any given weekend.

And for gun enthusiasts out there you know that you should be practicing with the same rounds you'd use under real life firing scenarios. Now, I know most of us don't do that. I personally only fire my more expensive rounds on rare occasions and shoot the cheap stuff when I'm having fun.

But I expect these government types should be shooting the more expensive stuff when practicing.

Moreover, if the armed guards carry badges then I'd expect that they'd be required to be at the range at least once a month. Which means at least one clip's worth every 30 days. Assuming they are carrying Glock 31s with a standard 15 round clip then that's 180 rounds fired on the practice range per officer per year.

You see how that ads up real quick?

The reason I'm going on about this is because this is how conspiracy theories get spread. They take an actual fact, but without context try to shock the reader into thinking something abnormal or nefarious is going on. When in actuality 174k hollow points isn't that many. Even for an agency like the Social Security Administration.

Regular ammunition:

Shooting at Family Research Council
UPDATE: ID'd as Floyd Corkin

FRC.org:

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Family Research Council President Tony Perkins made the following comments after an FRC security guard was shot this morning:

"The police are investigating this incident. Our first concern is with our colleague who was shot today. Our concern is for him and his family."

The FRC describes itself as a pro-life, pro-family and pro-faith lobby in DC.

Yesterday they mourned the loss of Nellie Gray, founder of the March for Life.

The group is described by leftists as, you know, hateful due to their opposition to gay marriage. See here, here and here. The group has drawn special disdain from Charles Johnson at Little Green Footballs.

More on the incident here at the Washington Examiner.

Two people, including one security guard, were shot at the office of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C., this morning.

“The police are investigating this incident,” said FRC President Tony Perkins in a statement on the shooting. “Our first concern is with our colleague who was shot today. Our concern is for him and his family.”

The shooter was also reportedly shot, according to a local news report, which notes that the FBI is at the scene.

More at Protein Wisdom.
sometimes good people just love so very much — and hate hate with such a burning, righteous hatred — that they make these kinds of principled mistakes.
According to the link to FOX Jeff posted the gunman who is in his twenties expressed opposition to FRC's policy positions.
The suspect "made statements regarding their policies, and then opened fire with a gun striking a security guard," a source told Fox News. WJLA-TV7 reported the suspect was also shot.

Authorities were treating the attack as a case of domestic terrorism.

Update: Apparently the shooter was holding a Chic Fil A bag and told told the security guard it was, "Not about you, it was what this place stands for."

Hat Tip: Ace.

Take these reports with a grain of salt, but just one grain. Methinks you're not going to need the whole shaker.

UPDATE by Rusty: His name seems to be Floyd Corkin. Here's a pic.

floyd_corkin.jpg

It's looking more and more like this nut was outraged over the FRC's backing of the policy stance on gay marriage which President Obama was elected on.

Updated by Howie 08/16/12 at 07:32 cdt:

CBS: A man suspected of shooting and wounding a security guard in the lobby of a Christian lobbying group had been volunteering at a community center for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.

..David Mariner is executive director of The DC Center for the LGBT Community. He says Corkins had been volunteering at the center for about the past 6 months. Mariner describes Corkins as "kind, gentle and unassuming."

While police have not yet stated what motivated Corkins, a coalition of 25 gay rights groups released a statement through GLAAD condemning the shooting.

"The motivation and circumstances behind today's tragedy are still unknown, but regardless of what emerges as the reason for this shooting, we utterly reject and condemn such violence. We wish for a swift and complete recovery for the victim of this terrible incident," the statement read.

Update: Chuck doubles down on teh hate.
make no mistake: the Family Research Council is, and remains, a far right hate group, trafficking in bigotry and religious fanaticism in order to deprive gay people of human rights. “Hate group” is the correct term for what they are, and no one should stop referring to them as such
*H8er!

Of course one could rewrite Chucky's statement on reverse to show that those who support gay marriage are intolerant haters of Strait, religious and center-right folk.

Lulz: "American Muslim Political Action Committee" Headed by Democrat, Truther

I saw this story over at the Washington Free Beacon and just couldn't pass. I wanted to, but my Zionist controllers in the Illuminati wouldn't let me.

MD Rabbi Alam served as chairman of the National Democratic Party Asian American Caucus, was a local campaign manager for Barack Obama, and has been invited to the White House. He just lost his bid to become the Democratic party's nominee to for the Missouri Secretary of State.

No doubt his defeat was orchestrated by ... *cough* .... monied interests in New York.

Wink, wink. Nudge, nudge. Say no more.

He tells The Washington Free Beacon:

Asked if he considers himself “anti-Zionist,” Alam responded, “No, I do not.”
Yet the AMPAC website's FAQ states:
A: The history of the Jewish-Zionist lobby AIPAC shows that it is more effective to be “radical” and express one's views strongly and honestly, than to be fearful and timid. The best defense is a good offense. Most of our seemingly “radical” positions are closely aligned with the views of the majority of the American people, who oppose the 9/11 wars, want to cut military spending, dislike the Patriot Act and other unconstitutional laws, and hate big bankster usury. Polls even show that 36% of the American people think it is likely that 9/11 was a false-flag operation! That is more people than voted for President Obama.
And just so you don't take any of this the wrong way, AMPAC will be a non-partisan PAC:
AMPAC is nonpartisan. But our support for candidates will be partly determined by their positions on issues important to Muslims. For example, in the Republican Party, Mitt Romney is a strong supporter of Zionism and the “war on terror” while Ron Paul is not, so we would be inclined to support Paul over Romney.
Go read the whole story. The website's owner claims he didn't know what was on the website. Which might have been believable -- honestly, I don't know everything on my own website, especially the gay porn posted by Howie -- except for the fact that Mr. Alam seems to be the sole author and this isn't some random post, but rather the FAQ page.

I've backed the website up just in case all of the offending material mysteriously disappears.

Here's a bit of the really good stuff just so you know the above aren't isolated or out-of-context quote:

Q: What are “the views and values of Muslims?” Aren't Muslims diverse in their political views?

A: AMPAC will focus on those issues that are of special importance to the Muslim community, and where there is a significant degree of agreement among Muslims. For example, there is widespread agreement in the community (though this is censored by the current leadership) that the “war on terror” is a hoax and that the official story of 9/11 is not true. See: http://muslimsforasafeamerica.org/?p=83 Since Muslims have suffered extreme discrimination due to the phony “war on terror,” this issue deserves to be at the top of Muslims' list of political priorities. Also, the majority of Muslims are pro-peace, anti-Terrorist, and opposed to usury (riba). Perhaps most importantly, Muslims oppose corruption (al-fasaad) and support clean, honest and transparent governance. We will support candidates according to their positions on these and other important issues.

By the way, that link in the quote above takes you to this:
Many Muslims in America don’t believe that any Muslims were involved in the 9/11 attacks. A 2007 Pew Research Center study found that 60 percent of Muslims in America are not convinced that Arabs were involved in 9/11; 40 percent do believe Arabs were involved. Pew confirmed the findings of a poll, conducted on the fifth anniversary of 9/11, at the Islamic Society of North America’s (ISNA) annual convention, which found that 62 percent of American Muslims are not convinced that Muslims were involved in 9/11; 38 percent do believe Muslims were involved. A 2002 Hamilton College/Zogby International poll of Muslims (citizens and non-citizens) living in America found that 66% are not convinced that Al Qaeda carried out the 9/11 attacks; 34% said Al Qaeda carried out the 9/11 attacks.

The poll at the ISNA convention also showed that most American Muslims are unconvinced that al-Qaeda is a real organization, operated by Muslims who are trying to attack America. (And the poll showed that most American Muslims are unconvinced that Muslims committed the July 2005 train and bus bombings in London.)

Many also believe that alleged plots discovered since 9/11 were set-ups by government informants, entrapping Muslims who posed no real threat to America....

The Pew study found that 74 percent of Muslims in America don’t believe America’s “War on Terror” is a sincere effort to reduce international terrorism. The poll at the ISNA convention showed that 68 percent of American Muslims believe the American government is at war with the religion of Islam.

So, if Arabs and Muslims weren't behind 9/11, who was? They don't say, but a composite sketch drawn up various non-eyewitnesses gives us the following rough visual of the identity of the perpetrators.

Get the Dead Out

Woman Admits to Poisoning Boyfriend With Visine Drops.

But she wasn't trying to kill him, she swears she only wanted more attention.

A 33-year-old Pennsylvania woman could spend the rest of her life in prison after admitting to police that she repeatedly poisoned her boyfriend with Visine eye drops for more than three years in a bid for his attention.

Nesbitt had been sick for years with symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and blood pressure and breathing problems, according to police. His doctor, Dr. Harry Johnston, alerted authorities in after detecting traces of tetrahydrozoline, a chemical found in eye drops, in Nesbitt's blood tests.

I really hope my better half doesn't hear about this.

'Brigades of Osama bin Laden' forms in the West Bank

What, are the terrorists running out of cool names.

A new jihadist group calling itself the Brigades of Osama bin Laden has announced its formation, in a statement that was recently released on terrorist-linked web forums.

The Brigades of Osama bin Laden issued a statement, which was released on Aug. 10 by the Al Minbar Media Foundation and subsequently published on its Internet forum, according to the SITE Intelligence Group. The statement was subsequently "posted on other jihadist forums such as Ansar al Mujahideen," but then "deleted by forum administrators," SITE noted.

I suppose AMEF is more interested in the jihad in Syria or something.

Sayful Islam Hearts al Qaeda

sayful_islam_al_qaeda_flag.jpg

This is Ishtiaq Alamgir, aka Sayful Islam (Sword of Islam). He lives in London, is on the public dole, and could be seen as recently as last week protesting the "terrorists" at the Olympics. By "terrorists" he meant the USA, Britain, Israel, etc.

The flag flying behind him in this video is that of al Qaeda (screencap above). Evidence shows Sayful Islam has distributed literature by Osama bin Laden online.

Terrorist: I do not think that word means what Sayful Islam thinks it means.

Obama May Not Be President Only For Black America, But He Is President Only For Democratic America

A few days ago, President Obama said something that was, imo, surprisingly worthy. When asked why he hasn't done more for black owned businesses in America, Obama responded that he was not President of 'Black' America, but President of all Americans.

However, he is apparently not the President of Republican Americans. At a campaign stop at the Iowa State Fair yesterday, Obama bought a round of beers. He specifically excluded one person who did not support his political views:

Civility. It's a leftist thing. You wouldn't understand.

UPDATE: At one point, you can hear the beer tent operator, Mike Cunningham II, say "Let's stimulate the economy here..." (That's what I heard. I could be wrong.) The owner estimates he lost over $25,000 after his beer tent was shut down in preparation for Obama's visit:

Obama’s fair stop Monday evening required shutdown of the popular Bud Tent, the heart of fairgrounds nightlife at the intersection of E. 33rd Street and Grand Avenue. Fairgoers eager to greet the president were ushered inside, screened and scanned by the Secret Service and penned in by yellow caution tape. The entire production required at least two hours, and the president’s sleek black coach bus pulled away from the Bud Tent by 8:30 p.m.

So much for stimulating the economy...

Report: Syrian Rebels Hang Shi'ite Child After Killing Family

The image of that dear child is heart wrenching

Brutal pictures emerged from Syria of a small Shi’ite child who was hanged by rebel forces after his entire family had been murdered.

The pictures were published by a human rights activists reporting from Iraq. Iraq’s news website, Qanon, reported that the rebels attacked the family in the Seyede Zainab neighborhood of Damascus

The brutality of the rebel forces have largely gone unreported in the Western media (see RadicalIslam’s related video, { “Media Bias Muddies Waters in Syria”). However, in recent days, online videos have surfaced showing how the rebels deal with those they perceive as loyal to the regime.

Somali Piracy Case

From a Reuters report:

A Somali man who acted as a ransom negotiator for pirates who seized an American yacht last year and killed four American hostages was sentenced on Monday by a U.S. federal judge to serve 12 life sentences.

Mohammad Shibin was convicted in April on 15 charges including piracy, hostage taking, kidnapping and conspiracy.

He was paid $30,000 to $50,000 in cash for his negotiating services, according to a federal indictment.

In a courtroom in Norfolk, Virginia, U.S. District Judge Robert Doumar sentenced Shibin to serve 10 concurrent life sentences, two consecutive life sentences and two 20-year sentences and ordered him to pay $5.4 million in restitution.

"Mohammad Shibin was a key participant in two of the most heinous acts of piracy in modern memory," U.S. Attorney Neil MacBride said in a statement.

MacBride also said, "Shibin will die in federal prison." Remember, the feds don't do parole.

Good News: Islamists Taking Over 4th Branch in Egypt

We've all heard that the ruling Islamists in Egypt flexed their muscles over the weekend and fired military officers seen as too cozy with the West. What went under the radar screen and is equally important is that they've also fired all of the editors of the state run papers and replaced them with more reliable apparatchiks -- namely, Islamists.

This latter phenomenon is much more indicative of the direction of Egypt than the former. Firing generals can be taken as a good sign by some of a civilian government exercising authority over the military. But replacing the former sycophants in the state run media with a new cadre of sycophants is the kind of move which signals that Egypt's revolution is less about democracy than it is about replacing the old system of oppression with a new system of oppression.

And although I'm against oppression in all its forms in all nations of the world, as an American let me suggest that who oppresses the Egyptian people is really none of my business. It's not that I don't care, I do, it's that I care more about us than I do about them.

So have fun with that Islamism thing, Egypt. Because you actually elected these guys then you get what you deserve.

Business Leaving Obama's Home State

If you want to know the effect of Illinois Democrat policies on business, ask no further than Democrat State Sen. Mike Frerichs.

Warner Todd Huston writes today about Democrat State Sen. Mike Frerichs (photo right) who is running for reelection in the 52nd District against John Bambenek. Warner writes about how Frerichs claims(sic) he’s about small businesses in Illinois. Yet, things have gotten so bad during his term in office that his own family is moving their business out of Illinois and into Indiana.
Gayle Frerichs, who lives in Tuscola but drives 60 miles one-way to his company headquarters in Covington, said he didn’t like to get thrown into the middle of a political campaign. But he confirmed many of Bambenek’s points about Illinois and its business climate.

He said he saved between $90,000 and $100,000 a year by moving his business to Indiana. Much of the saving was in reduced workers compensation costs, but he also has lower costs in taxes, license plates and health care for his 20 or so employees.

…Gayle Frerichs said he had been looking into moving his business out of Illinois for some time. “But the final straw was when Illinois raised its income taxes. That did it for me,” he said.

These are the same tax, borrow and spend policies that Barack Obama cut his teeth on in Illinois state government, the same policies he is now bringing to to whole of America.

House Asks Federal Court to Rule Against Attorney General’s Stonewalling in #FastandFurious

issa_terri_holder.jpg
#FastAndFurious
The civil suit was filed today[yesterday..ed] in Federal District Court for the District of Columbia by the General Counsel to the House of Representatives on behalf of the Oversight Committee.

Click here for a copy of the civil action filed today[yesterday...ed].

(WASHINGTON)—Today[yesterday..ed], the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee filed a civil action to compel U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to produce documents related to Operation Fast and Furious subpoenaed by the Committee on October 11, 2011. Among other things, the House’s legal action seeks to obtain documents covered by the subpoena that will show why the Justice Department took ten months to retract a February 4, 2011 letter which contained false denials of the reckless investigative tactics used in Operation Fast and Furious. After months of stonewalling by the Attorney General and his staff, and minutes before the Oversight Committee convened a business meeting to consider a resolution holding the Attorney General in contempt, President Obama invoked an eleventh hour assertion of executive privilege over the documents. The House’s filing asks the federal court to rule that President Obama’s assertion of executive privilege was invalid and compel Attorney General Eric Holder to produce subpoenaed documents.

Whistle Blower Docs: "Ill. State Workers Forced to Attend Pelosi, Jesse Jackson Jr. Event on Taxpayers Dime

Documents and a whistle-blower affidavit obtained by The Daily Caller charge that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Illinois Democratic Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., and Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr., participated in an unethical — and possibly illegal — effort to force 76 employees of an Illinois state agency to engage in political activity on the taxpayers’ dime.

According to the whistle-blower, Rev. Jackson also encouraged the government employees to load first-generation and low-income college students up with student loan debt — because Democrats in Congress, he allegedly promised, would eventually pass laws to forgive that debt later. “[T]hose people will continue to vote Democratic,” Jackson Sr. said, according to the whistle-blower.

#WOW: Killing and beating women is a negative part of Arab identity, says university lecturer on PA TV

The real war on women (WOW)

Palestinian Authority TV interview with Yusuf Jabarrrn, Israeli Arab lecturer at the Technion:
Jabareen: "Part of our identity is to kill women, for example, to kill women, to beat women..."
Host: "You generalize."
Jabareen: "No. I don't generalize."
Host: "Not everyone is the same."
Jabareen: "Part of our identity is to attack women - we must acknowledge it. Every society has its defects and its charms. Palestinian identity has its charms, but there are things we have adopted from Arab culture for centuries that harm the individual and the woman. For example, in recent months, look how many women were killed in Lod, in Ramle, and in Acre, and so on. That's part of our identity."

Muslim Hospital Tech Hates Jews Loves Porn

If they wheel you into the operating room and you see this dude there, he'll be ignoring your heart lung machine, fapping and praising Allah during the procedure. Now just relax.

14.1n011.mtsinai2.c--300x300.jpg

NY Post:

A Mount Sinai Hospital technician — responsible for running complicated equipment during open-heart surgeries — watched porn on his smartphone as patients lay with their lives in the balance just inches away, according to a bombshell lawsuit by former cardiovascular tech Sandra Morris.

She said Cercioglu’s porn habit was so “commonplace [in the operating room] that other perfusionists routinely joked about his behavior,” according to the lawsuit she filed last week.

In her suit, filed July 31, Morris also alleged that Cercioglu, a Muslim, regularly degraded her for being female and an observant Jew. He went so far as to blast her publicly as a “dumb Jew bitch” in front of co-workers, the lawsuit claims.

“Ms. Morris was told several times [by Cercioglu and Lazala] . . . that she cannot work on [those] cases because she doesn’t have a ‘d--k,’ ” her suit claims.

Romney Named #1 Gentile "Positively Influencing the Jewish Future"

Over at the algemeiner they've compiled a list of the top-10 non-Jews "Positively Influencing the Jewish Future" and Mitt Romney is #1 on their list:

Love or hate his politics, Romney’s vocal support for Israel as a contender for the world’s top job, has challenged the incumbent and many Americans to rediscover their own understanding of the United States’ special relationship with the Jewish state.

His tough stance on Iran has put the Ayatollahs on notice. In his recent trip to the Holy Land, he acknowledged Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and cited the historic connection of the Jewish people with the land, which has gone a long way in underlining the Jewish narrative regarding Israel on the world stage, thereby earning him the top spot this year.

Good for you Mitt!

Arab Spring! Tunisian Activist Arrested for Drinking During Ramadaan

Euronews:

A Tunisian secular activist and blogger was arrested on Sunday for drinking alcohol during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, a move set to anger the opposition which is suspicious of the Islamist-led government’s policies on public morality.

Soufiene Chourabi made a name for himself criticising former President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali’s policies before the start of a revolt that later toppled the autocrat and sparked a wave of popular protests that came to be known as the “Arab Spring”.

Chourabi has since warned that the Ennahda Islamist Movement – which is leading the current government – is imposing an increasing number of restrictions on public freedom. A few days before his arrest, he had called for a protest in front of the Interior Ministry to demand greater liberty.

Remember alcohol is forbidden under Sharia (Islamic religious law).
Anis Zine, his lawyer, said Chourabi was arrested along with two of his friends early on Sunday when police spotted them drinking on a beach in the western town of Menzel Temime.

He may be charged with public drunkenness and breaching morality and could be jailed for six months if found guilty, Zine added.

Hey al Qaeda, Leave Those Kids Alone!

I'm pretty sure Pink Floyd didn't have this in mind when they wrote The Wall:

Al-Qaeda has been setting up “terrorist schools” to allegedly confine kidnapped young children and brainwash them into future attacks on western countries, the Daily Mail reported on Sunday.

The “school” keeps the young children, all under the age of ten and some as young as seven, chained to beds while they are taught a very extreme version of Islam, the newspaper stated. It has been claimed that they were also taught about suicide bombings and told they would go to paradise if they committed suicide in “martyrdom operations.”

“The images suggest al-Shabaab has turned to slavery in order to produce a generation of child soldiers and suicide bombers.” Doyle, author of Terror Base UK and Terror Tracker told the Sunday Mirror.

HAMAS Leader Takes A Break From Israel Bashing To Get Life-Saving Treatment In Israel For Relative

Palestinians will gladly accept Israel's advanced technology and medical treatment to save their own lives. But then, they'll just as happily send their children on a suicide mission to kill the very same doctors who saved them.

Hypocrisy knows no bounds in the Palestinian world.

From FNC:

HAIFA, Israel – Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh has no problem calling for the destruction of Israel and blaming it for attacks linked to his own party, but when his relative needs life-saving heart surgery, only Israeli doctors will do.

I wonder, do terrorists HAMAS members have to pay for treatment up front, or does Israel just send them a bill later? 'Cause if it were me, I'd just take their address to send a missile bill. Really. That was just a typo. I meant bill. Seriously.

You voted and this week's Corps Top Shot comes from Cpl. Isaac Lamberth. Lamberth said: "During my time on this deployment, I've come to really enjoy flying with HMH-362. I've been looking for opportunities to really spotlight the squadron since they are to be deactivated once they finish this deployment. The three American flags surrounding the corporal looked so patriotic and made me proud to be a Marine. To me, it showed there are young people in this country still willing to volunteer during wartime and go into harm's way for their country. The Marine manning a .50 cal on the ramp with three American flags behind him really set off the photo and just screams 'Merica. It makes one proud to be an American."

"There is an unofficial saying that if a 53 is bleeding hydraulic fluid, then you know you're safe, if it isn't then you're in trouble. The inside of a CH-53D Sea Stallion is very greasy, slippery and dirty and you're constantly getting showered in hydraulic fluid. Some of the aircraft in HMH-362 have flown since the Vietnam War and are quite dirty."

Cpl. Chan Lathung, a native of Oakland, Calif., and a crew chief with Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 362, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (Forward), scans the surrounding area for insurgent activity during a general support flight over Helmand province, Afghanistan, July 27. The squadron flies several general support flights weekly delivering mail, food and ammunition to troops throughout the area.

Video: Obama: Let's Repeat Auto Bailout With Every Industry

Pres. Obama says at a campaign event in Pueblo, CO that he wants to repeat the auto bailout in every industry (August 9, 2012).

Yesterday, Ace noted Politico has now "fixed" the story

because they claim they were "unclear" about Obama's intent, about his main thrust. Although they don't say so, they're attempting to now say Obama did not mean he wants to heavily invest government money in every industry -- even though his actual examples are about precisely that (subsidies for the wind farm industry, for example).

Another case where the Obama Palace Guard actually has a scoop but refuses to report it, or at least report it as such -- thus Drudge sweeps in and gets it right.

And Drudge does get it right, despite Politico's attempt to cover up yet another "I didn't say that" moment by Obama.

Another Muslime Gets Life

Florida Muslim who set wife on fire gets life in prison.

Khalid Abeljawwad Mohd was found guilty in June of various charges related to the attack on Rema Jamel in March 27, 2010 after she asked him to help extend her visa.

“Mohd told her he would not help her and that he intended to bring his second wife from Jordan, where it is legal to have multiple wives, to live in Palatka,” the State Attorney’s Office said in a statement.

Mohd then told her she could not take her children with her back to Jordan and he threatened to kill her and bury her in the back yard, the statement said.

She suffered second- and third-degree burns over 75 percent of her body. She testified at his two-day trial in June and during his sentencing hearing Wednesday.

She is permanently disfigured and in constant pain. Doctors told her she needs about a dozen more surgeries.

I guess he was just a misunderstanderer of Islam. I mean I'm always hearing how Islam is good for women.

Zimmerman Prosecutor "Accidentally" Releases Damaging Evidence

Damaging to George Zimmerman, that is.

From The Smoking Gun:

In an embarrassing screw-up, Florida prosecutors today accidentally distributed a post-mortem photo of Trayvon Martin as well as copies of George Zimmerman’s college records, material that Florida law considers confidential and exempt from disclosure.

Coincidentally (and IMO), neither of these items helps Zimmerman, but rather harms his case. The photocopy of Martin's body serves only to inflame the public that had, over the last few weeks, simmered down about the case, and the school records reveal Zimmerman was not a very good student, possibly tainting the jury pool against him.

How the school records are even relevant in this case is beyond me. But the image is very revealing:

Cornhole Watch: Naser Jason Abdo Gets Double Life +60 Years

Islamic terrorist Jason Abdo will be spending a long long long time in Federal Pound Jason in the Ass Prison.

Statesman:

federal judge this morning sentenced Pfc. Naser Jason Abdo to two consecutive life sentences, plus 60 years in prison for plotting to bomb and shoot Fort Hood soldiers in 2011.
Abdo, who represented himself at the sentencing hearing after dismissing his court-appointed lawyers last month, told U.S. District Judge Walter Smith that he remains committed to “jihad,” an Arabic word meaning struggle, that in some Islamic contexts can mean holy war.

“I don’t ask the court for mercy because Allah is the one who gives me mercy,” Adbo said, referring to God in Arabic. He said he was motivated by what he called crimes committed by the U.S. and the U.S. military against Muslims.
“I have continued to answer the call of jihad and will continue to the day I am called to account for my deeds,” he continued

Yeah? Well I guess Allah will have to wait 60 years past your second death.

A Occupy protester in the Pennsylvania town of Easton was arrested and faces attempted bank robbery charges for holding a sign saying “you’re being robbed” during an organized event at a bank.

Dave Gorczynski, 22, held another sign that said, “Give a man a gun, he can rob a bank. Give a man a bank, and he can rob a country,” reported the Express-Times newspaper. He was arrested and charged with attempted robbery, a felony, making terroristic threats, and disorderly conduct.

Ooops, I guess the police didn't get the Obama memo

RNC Pounds #Obama2012's Stephanie Cutter In New Ad: What Else?

The Republican National Committee releases "What Else?" as President Obama's campaign continues to lie about its relationship with the disgusting ad put out by President Obama's Super PAC. After refusing to denounce the lies and distortion of the ad, the Obama campaign repeatedly claimed it had no idea about Joe Soptic's story even though they had him tell the same story during an OFA conference call earlier this spring. So, their actions beg the question--what else are they lying about?

Where's Rusty? Phobic Edition

He's busy explaining, you know, stuff.

A young man who told police he was beaten up in a would-be hate crime appeared in court today admitting that he made the entire incident up.

The story of Joseph Baken travelled from Missoula, Montana across the country when a picture of his scratched and bruised face made waves on the internet.

Now, Baken has declared in court that he made the false police report after video surfaced of him attempting to do a back flip and failing.

Mali Muslims Hope To Win Hearts And Minds

The Religion of Peace™...

An armed Islamist group occupying northern Mali said Thursday it hopes to win over the country's south to its ideology and create an Islamic state. [...]

"We hope to be able to peacefully convince the people of this country (southern Mali) to join us so that all our efforts can be directed against the common enemy," Ansar Dine spokesman Senda Ould Boumama told an Islamist website called "Defenders of Jihadists".

The "common enemy" was described as non-Muslim "miscreants". [...]

On Wednesday MUJAO cut off a thief's hand, 10 days after Ansar Dine publicly stoned an unmarried couple to death.

Yes, a few peacefully amputated limbs and a good peaceful stoning always wins the crowds over.

CNN: Obama Super PAC Lying About Romney “Cancer Victim”

If you're in a swing state you may have already seen an ad claiming a man's wife died because Bain capital shut down his factory and he lost health insurance. The implication being that Romney killed this guy's wife.

What the ad doesn't tell you is that: a) the steel plant was already going bankrupt before Bain capital bought it; b) that Bain tried and failed to turn the steel plant around; c) that Mitt Romney had left Bain capital two years before the plant was closed, the relationship he had with the company after that was simply pro-forma; d) the man's wife had health insurance from her employer, even after the man was laid off; e) the woman wasn't diagnosed with cancer until 7 years after Mitt Romney left Bain.

Now, this CNN report I've posted below never goes so far as to say the advertisement is a "lie", instead calling it "inaccurate". That's about as good as we can expect from a network clearly in the bag for Obama.

But this isn't just an inaccurate ad, it's a disgusting falsification trying to pin the death of a woman on Mitt Romney which in my mind is the worst kind of lie I've seen yet coming from the Obama camp.

People die every day. People with health insurance die every day. People with health insurance die every day from cancer that isn't detected until it's too late.

I blame Obama. I'm sure I could construct some sort of "relationship" between the President, his actions, and the "victim" which are just as valid, and just as tenuous, as the one constructed between Mitt Romney and this man's wife.

Here's the report:

Lifestyle Fascist Adam Smith Also Obama2012 Donor

Telegraph:

An Adam Smith of Tuscon, Arizona, donated $250 to Obama For America on May 10, 2012. This Smith listed his address as “Engineering and Research Associates Inc.” Engineering and Research Associates Inc. is the full business title of Vante. Is America’s most unpleasant Chick-fil-A customer also an Obama supporter? It’s interesting to note that the FEC records the donation as coming in on May 10 – that's one day after the President issued his formal support for gay marriage on May 9.

But most times liberal anger expresses as a lifestyle fascism so perverse in its mix of total liberty and totalitarianism that it reads like a Monty Python sketch written by Michel Foucault. “You must be free – whether you like it or not.” Hillary Rosen thinks housewives are lazy princesses. Michael Bloomberg wants to be the world’s dietician. Barack Obama would force churches to choose contraception over conscience. The causes may be just, but they do not justify the use of state power to coerce agreement with them. Moreover, they all involve the use of extreme language that demonises opponents. In one of its latest ads, Obama’s SuperPAC basically accuses Mitt Romney of firing a man and then killing his wife.

If you're objecting to the use of the word Fascist. Well, Rahm Emanuel and other leftist government officials were behaving in a fascist manner when they sought to ban Chic Fil A from doing business in their cities. In these cases the autocratic politicians sought to impose their will and values upon the private sector through their power as public officials. Yup.

Update: See what I mean.

White House Told Authorities Not To Crack Down On #Occupy Protesters

No surprise here

The Obama administration told law enforcement authorities to go easy on Occupy Wall Street protesters, even though they were violating local laws, according to documents obtained by watchdog group Judicial Watch.

Emails from the General Services Administration show that the federal agency, acting on orders from the White House, told federal law enforcement authorities in Portland, Ore., not to enforce curfews on protesters camped out on federal property. JudicialWatch.org obtained the emails through a Freedom of Information Act request lodged last year.

In one exchange from Nov. 6, 2011, officials from the Department of Homeland Security and the GSA discuss a group of 11 protesters camped out at the federally-owned Terry Schrunk Plaza.

UPDATE By DMartyr: I just wanted to add my two cents (one cent after taxes) -
the White House, via the General Services Administration, ordered law enforcement not to intervene unless there was "a threat to public safety." Take a good long look at the list below the fold. From vandalism to terrorism, from child molestations to rapes & murders, apparently the Obama Administration doesn't consider any of these things to be a threat to public safety. If killing innocent people and fire bombing buildings aren't a threat to this Administration, what is?

SBD™: US kills AQAP bombmaker, 9 fighters in pair of strikes in Yemen

I love it when terrorists are sploded by drone (SBD™)

The US launched two drone strikes against al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula in Yemen today[yesterday...ed], killing a senior bombmaker and nine other fighters. The US has now conducted three strikes in Yemen in the past four days. Meanwhile, jihadists named one of the AQAP fighters killed in Saturday's drone strike.

In the first strike, the unmanned Predators or Reapers fired several missiles at two vehicles traveling in the town of Rawdah in Baydah province, The Associated Press reported. Yemeni officials said that Abdullah Awad al Masri, a wanted bombmaker who is also known as Abou Osama al Maribi, was killed in the strike. It is unclear if he is a Yemeni, however, as his surname, al Masri, indicates he is an Egyptian.

Two Egyptians, a Tunisian, a Saudi, and a Bahraini were among the seven AQAP fighters killed in the strike. Their identities have not been disclosed.

Aly Raisman Remembers Israelis

New York Post:

It wasn’t a gloved-fist salute from the medal stand, but Jewish-American gymnast Aly Raisman made quite a statement yesterday by winning a gold medal and invoking the memory of the Israeli athletes killed 40 years ago in Munich.

Raisman finished first in the women’s floor exercise, but she deserves to have another medal draped around her neck for having the chutzpah to face the world and do what needed to be done and say what needed to be said.

At the same Olympic Games where bigoted organizers stubbornly refused to honor the slain athletes with a moment of silence, 18-year-old Raisman loudly shocked observers first by winning, then by paying her own tribute to 11 sportsmen who died long before she was born.

Wisconsin Gunman Wade Michael Page's Ex-Girlfriend Arrested

mistymcook.jpg
Hate on display: Undated photo of Misty Cook

Possessing a firearm is a no no for a convicted felon

Police say they have arrested the former girlfriend of Wade Michael Page, the man who allegedly shot and killed six people in a Sikh temple, after authorities say they found a gun in her Milwaukee home.

Cook was taken into custody on the grounds that she is prohibited from having a gun as a convicted felon, a federal law enforcement official said. Cook was convicted in 2002 for fleeing and eluding a traffic officer.

Milwaukee police released a statement Tuesday after the arrest of Misty Cook, saying, "In a joint investigation with the FBI, the South Milwaukee Police Department has arrested Misty Cook on the crime of felon in possession of a firearm. Charges will be sought through the Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office."[...]

University of Nebraska criminology professor Pete Simi didn't comment on Cook but says he interviewed Page for a project researching white supremacists from 2001-03.

"When he joined his first white power music band, this really changed his life," he said, adding that Page told him his neo-Nazi beliefs came after serving in the Army.[Natch, bring the military into this. Nappy must be proud...ed]

"He [Page] saw and experienced things that angered him, convinced him whites were victimized," Simi said.

Cook might be able to fill in the gaps of what transpired in the weeks and months prior to Sunday's shooting, sources said. Cook's relationship with Page fell apart in the weeks leading up to his alleged shooting spree.

I watched a newscast and they noted she works across the street from the Sikh Temple.

Update: Wade Michael Page is dead, having shot himself in the head.

While Obama Gives Amnesty To Illegals, Hard-Working Productive Legal Immigrants Are Being Deported

UPDATE II: Change.org links removed over privacy concerns (Thanks, Dude). FoxNews is now reporting Laura will be able to stay in America thanks to the intervention by Sen. Claire McCaskill.

UPDATE: Some in comments are questioning the facts presented so far in this case. There may very well be more involved here. I'll keep an eye for new information, both in the news and in comments.

Obama's DREAM Act only applies to illegal immigrants - those who have violated and disrespected our laws. Immigrants who have come to America the correct way, those who have respected and obeyed our laws, do not have protection.

lauragray.jpg

One example, Laura Gray. Her family came to America legally. Her parents and grandparents did everything they were supposed to do under our laws. But when Laura turned 21 today, her visa ran out.

Laura's family have started a petition (emphasis their's):

On August 8th, when she turns twenty-one Lauren will no longer be allowed to be a dependent on her parents visa's. She will be forced to leave the place that she calls home, and deported to a country that is very "foreign" to her. Her family, friends and everything she knows and loves are all here in the United States. In many eyes, Lauren is already an upstanding citizen.

Obama recently announced the DREAM Act which will allow illegal immigrants under 35, who came to the United States as minors, a temporary work visa. If they serve two years in the military or complete two years of higher education they are also granted six years of temporary residency. Lauren meets every qualification for Obama's DREAM Act, except she has done one thing wrong. She did everything right. Since Lauren is here as a legal immigrant, and her parents have patiently worked with the United States government since 2003 to legalize all members of their family, the DREAM ACT will not honor her.

Wrong nationality, wrong language, wrong mentality about the United States. Laura, you should have learn Spanish, come to America illegally through Mexico, and then paraded your hatred for this country for all to see while demanding free handouts from the American tax-payer.

Then you would have qualified to stay here.

Where's Rusty? Or, Why Barack Obama Hates the Small Businesswoman

My wife's new business property is finally up and running. I spent most of last four days trying to get the place cleaned up and ready for her to move in. She's in and thanks to her hard work and effort -- not government roads -- she not only has expanded her home based business but also hired three people to work for her.

Before today's rant, let me quote from my previous rant about Obama's philosophy of why business are started, succeed, or fail: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.I stand by those words, only it's worse than that. Much, much worse.

The regulatory burden on even a small business like my wife's is substantial. How substantial? At least one of my wife's employees was hired just to free up her time so that she could spend it doing required paper work for the government.

That's 1/3 of our labor costs devoted specifically to overcoming the regulatory burden.

But it's worse than that because in the last few months we've had to go through so many hurdles just to get the proper approvals from the proper bureaucrats. One of those bureaucratic agencies said "no" to one of our licensing applications, meaning our profit potential was cut in half.

And the reasoning behind rejecting that license application? There were too many similar businesses in the area. In other words, a government bureaucrat decided that our area didn't need another of the same businesses because that might jeopardize the profits of my wife's competitors.

Most liberals like to fool themselves into thinking that government agencies are set up to protect the consumer from monopolies and oligarchies. Instead, the reality is that many of these licensing agencies are set up to protect businesses from competition.

Of course, they don't ever say that this is their mission. They claim these licensing restrictions are a way of ensuring that a public need is met. Their reasoning is that some needed industries won't make needed capital investments if they aren't guaranteed a certain rate of return. Licensing restrictions restrict competition and make it harder for "much needed businesses" to go under.

In reality this means that previously established or politically connected businesses are given preference over start ups. The government, in the name of the public good, now restricts competition and stifles innovation.

Now, don't get me wrong, my wife's business will succeed with or without the additional licenses she sought. She's just that good. But our profit margin would have been at least double what it is now had the government not interfered in the free market all in the name of the public good.

But it gets even more ironical than that. About a month into trying to figure out all of the paperwork, I suggested that my wife get a hold of someone from the Small Business Administration. She did, and it was the SBA that helped my wife finalize much of what needed to be done in order to push through everything required.

You might be tempted to call me a hypocrite. The SBA is a federal entity. The SBA really helped. I'm not sure we could have made it through the process as quickly as we did (and it was still a three month process!) without them.

But the hypocrisy lies not with us, but with those who actually believe the government helps, not hinders, business.

While it's true that the SBA was helpful, why was their help necessary? Because of government regulations.

In other words, our government is so large and complex that it requires a separate government agency just to help regular folks understand how to navigate its complexities.

Think about that. Government is so big that without an army of lawyers at your disposal it requires yet another government agency just to explain it all to the layman.

We required help from the government in order to protect us from the government. It's win-win if you are in favor of bigger government! First you pile on so many regulations that your business is sure never to succeed, then you start yet another government agency in order to help you stay afloat from sinking under the weight of regulations from other government agencies.

It's maddening.

So, the next time someone tells you that without government there would be no roads simply point out that it's a straw man argument. No one is arguing that we shouldn't have roads.

Let me publicly declare that I like roads. I'm pro-road!

What I'm not in favor of is a government which micromanages risk in the name of "the public good". Which seeks "fairness" at the expense of liberty. And which shields the ignorant, stupid, or evil from the natural consequences of their actions.

Emails: Geithner, Treasury Drove Cutoff Of Non-Union Delphi Workers Pensions

Obama administration officials lying under oath isn't really lying even though there are emails proving the lies.

Hope/Change:

Emails obtained by The Daily Caller show that the U.S. Treasury Department, led by Timothy Geithner, was the driving force behind terminating the pensions of 20,000 salaried retirees at the Delphi auto parts manufacturing company.

The move, made in 2009 while the Obama administration implemented its auto bailout plan, appears to have been made solely because those retirees were not members of labor unions.

The internal government emails contradict sworn testimony, in federal court and before Congress, given by several Obama administration figures. They also indicate that the administration misled lawmakers and the courts about the sequence of events surrounding the termination of those non-union pensions, and that administration figures violated federal law.

Delphi, a General Motors company, is one of the world’s largest automotive parts manufacturers. Twenty thousand of its workers lost nearly their entire pensions when the government bailed out GM. At the same time, Delphi employees who were members of the United Auto Workers union saw their pensions topped off and made whole.

Bank Helped Iran Launder 250 Million Billion

ABC:

A British bank schemed with the Iranian government to launder $250 billion from 2001 to 2007, leaving the United States' financial system "vulnerable to terrorists," New York's financial regulator charged Monday.

In a statement released Monday night, Standard Chartered Bank said it "strongly rejects" and "contests" the New York regulators' portrayal of its transactions with Iranian banks. It said it voluntarily began reviewing the transactions since 2010 with U.S. regulators and the findings don't match the accusations leveled at the bank Monday.

State Financial Services Superintendent Benjamin Lawsky signed an order that requires London-based Standard Chartered Bank to answer his questions following an investigation into "wire stripping," the practice of removing crucial identifiers in financial transactions.

The state agency called the bank a rogue institution and quoted one of its executives as saying: "You (expletive) Americans. Who are you to tell us, the rest of the world, that we're not going to deal with Iranians."

F*ck the Cloud

At least someone else sees the issues with large cloud providers owning the servers, the data and not to mention you, your identity and regulating how those are presented to the world.

Yahoo: Steve Wozniak, who co-founded Apple with the late Steve Jobs, predicted "horrible problems" in the coming years as cloud-based computing takes hold.

But the engineering wizard behind the progenitor of today's personal computer, the Apple II, was most outspoken on the shift away from hard disks towards uploading data into remote servers, known as cloud computing.

"I really worry about everything going to the cloud," he said. "I think it's going to be horrendous. I think there are going to be a lot of horrible problems in the next five years."

He added: "With the cloud, you don't own anything. You already signed it away" through the legalistic terms of service with a cloud provider that computer users must agree to.

"I want to feel that I own things," Wozniak said. "A lot of people feel, 'Oh, everything is really on my computer,' but I say the more we transfer everything onto the web, onto the cloud, the less we're going to have control over it."

Jihadists Murder 15 Egyptian Muslims In Failed Attempt to Kidnap Israelis

But don't worry about them killing 15 Muslims on Ramadaan because in Islam any forbidden thing is OK if its for Jihad, yeah?

NYT's:

JERUSALEM — The Israeli defense minister, Ehud Barak, said on Monday that a terrorist attack that killed 15 Egyptian soldiers on Sunday night should serve as “a wake-up call” to the new Egyptian president about the growing danger in the Sinai Peninsula and the border between the two nations.

Masked gunmen attacked an Egyptian Army checkpoint around sundown on Sunday, as the soldiers were preparing to break their Ramadan fast. Lt. Col. Avital Leibovich, an Israeli military spokeswoman, said on Monday that the gunmen then seized an armored vehicle and a truck, and stormed the fence at the Kerem Shalom crossing into Israel with the apparent goal of kidnapping an Israeli soldier or civilians.

And don't worry about these particular Jihadists doing this again.

Shooting At Sikh Temple (Updated/Bumped Killer Identified as Wade Michael Page)
Update: Person of Interest Sought

wade_larger.jpg
SH: Wade Michael's photo above from his band's "End Apathy" Myspace page Note the pseudo-swastika with the No 14 tattoo

POI_sikhshootings.jpg
SH: Cops are seeking the above person of interest Interviewed & released

The only good coming out of this story is that we won't have to give the shooter a trial or free room and board. I hope he rots in hell.

Breitbart is reporting as many as three shooters may be involved, and some children may be being held hostage.

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: At least four people were shot just before 11 a.m. at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek Sunday morning and a police SWAT team entered the building before noon and brought uninjured people out of the building at 7512 S. Howell Ave. Among those who were shot was the president of the temple. People were in the temple as early as 6:30 a.m. Sunday and many more were arriving for a service that was to begin about 11:30 a.m. There were reports that children were taken to the building’s basement after shots were fired. Someone who sent a text message to a Journal Sentinel reporter shortly before noon said that there were two shooters with children possibly as hostages. And the head priest was locked inside a restroom with a cell phone and that there were as many as 20-to-30 victims.

Please say prayers for the victims and a safe rescue if there are, in fact, hostages.

Just a personal observation, I wonder if this was an attempt by a deranged, radical group or individual who may have attacked these Sikhs thinking they were Muslims. No matter the victims, attacking the innocent is NEVER an acceptable solution. I think I can safely speak for my fellow Jawas when I say we all repudiate such a vile and cowardly act against anyone.

UPDATE: Amazing. How often have we seen authorities insisting "no connection to terrorism" when a crazed gunman runs around shouting, "Allahu Akbar!"? But already police are declaring this one an act of terrorism before they even have a motive.

I think it is an act of terrorism. But there's some hypocrisy in the way these things are labeled depending on who the victims are and who the perpetrators are.

FoxNews video added:

UPDATE II: There are conflicting stories about the number of assailants involved. Obama weighs in unusually soon for this type of incident.

UPDATE III: It appears now there was only one shooter.

Will update as new details emerge.

UPDATE IV by Howie 08/06/12: The killer is tentatively identified as..

Law enforcement sources familiar with the investigation named him Monday as Wade Michael Page, 40. One law enforcement official said he owned the gun used in the shooting legally.

He had apparently served on active duty, a U.S. official familiar with his record said. The source declined to give further details.

If anyone has anything to add on Mr. Page please comment.

UPDATE V: Confirmed, Page was a well Skin Head known and played in various Neo Nazi bands.

The man who allegedly murdered six people at a Sikh temple in suburban Milwaukee yesterday, identified in media reports as Wade Michael Page, was a frustrated neo-Nazi who had been the leader of a racist white-power band.

In 2010, Page, then the leader of the band End Apathy, gave an interview to the white supremacist website Label 56.

Hat Tip: Intelwire.

He was also received a Not Honorable discharge from the service.

Possible twitter feed here.

UPDATE VI by DMartyr:
This guy apparently has tattoo "sleeves." That is, multiple tattoos covering both arms from wrist to shoulder. So, why did the police feel the need to only mention a 9/11 tattoo?

Also, since when is a lone gunman a terrorist, while a shooter with connections to al Qaeda is just a lone gunman? Again, I do think this should be considered terrorism, since it is an attack against innocent people for the purpose of furthering a political agenda. But our government is so blatantly two-faced when it comes to labeling these incidents.

UPDATE VII by SH: The "9/11 tattoo" was bs spewing forth according to the FBI

Carlson of the FBI told the Journal Sentinel that there is no 9-11 tattoo on Page's body. Several national news organizations had reported Sunday that the shooter had such a tattoo.

The only criminal contact the Cumberland County department had on Page was a charge of writing a worthless check in October 1997.

Save Our Balls

It's really a shame that people can't just play with their balls without the Government interfering. Because a few irresponsible parents allow their children to play with their balls, the rest of us - us responsible adults - may have our balls taken away from us. The Government thinks you shouldn't be able to have any.

This video explains how you can help Save Our Balls:

It's not too late. You can still buy some balls HERE. But hurry. They may not be available for long. (And don't forget, Christmas isn't far off. BuckyBalls would make a great present for an adult!)

Obama Administration Frees Terrorist Who Tortured To Death 5 Captured U.S. Soldiers

From Breitbart:

Judicial Watch reports that Hezbollah commander Ali Mussa Daqduq, who tortured and killed 5 U.S. soldiers in Iraq and was detained by U.S. forces in early 2007, will be freed by an Iraqi court--the inevitable, and predictable, result of an Obama administration decision to hand him over to Iraqi authorities rather than bring him to Guantanamo Bay.

Justice for Shafilea Ahmed:

A couple who killed their 'westernised' teenage daughter because they believed she had brought shame on the family were convicted of her murder today - nine years after the brutal killing.

Iftikhar Ahmed, 52, and his wife Farzana, 49, of Liverpool Road, Warrington, Cheshire, suffocated Shafilea, 17, with a plastic bag in 2003 in an apparent 'honour killing'.

They were jailed for at least 25 years each.

99%-er Living in $1.2 Million House

My favorite part from this Zombie essay? No, it wasn't the radical lesbians against the only gay-friendly country in the Middle East (Israel). It was the owner of the $1.2 million home declaring himself part of the 99%:

I literally laughed out loud a few hours later when I saw this “We Are the 99%” sign on a house in a very pricey neighborhood in the Berkeley hills. Although you might not be able to tell due to the weed-choked front yard, homes in this area are famously expensive. Out of curiosity, I noted down the address and later looked up the home’s estimated assessed value on one of those real estate property records Web sites: $1.2 million.

Nothing better illustrates the deep-seated hypocrisy and cognitive dissonance of the Berkeley worldview than someone who lives in a $1.2 million home imagining that they are part of “the 99%.” Berkeleyans are in general quite highly paid and well-off, but they are ashamed of their success, and so pretend to be poor. Not so ashamed that they actually give up their privilege, mind you: it’s much easier to put a “We Are the 99%” sign in the window of your mansion than it is to actually experience any hardship.

Indeed.

What Lone Wolf Terrorists?

Ah, yes, the so-called "lone wolf" terrorist. This type of terrorist is more dangerous because they are harder to detect. Which is why in the waning days of his life, al Qaeda in the Arabian Penninsula's American publicist urged his compatriots to take up arms lone wolf style.

But what if most of these lone wolves weren't so lonely? That's what one study from Prof. Gabriel Weimann of the University of Haifa suggests:

According to Prof. Weimann, most of the “lonely wolves” make contact, share information, and acquire training through the Internet, whether from sites that are linked with terror organizations, from forums supporting such organizations, or from other platforms. In addition to this sort of “regular” activity on the web, social networks provide these individuals with their virtual wolfpack: a virtual community of people who think like them, who share their ideals, and with whom they can consult and share advice. “The virtual community gives the ‘lone wolf’ social environment, support, and moral encouragement,” Prof. Weimann notes.

The researcher presents a number of examples of such terrorists who supposedly acted alone. It was revealed that American officer Nidal Hasan, who shot and killed thirteen American soldiers, had communicated with a known terrorist through the Internet. Arif Uka, a young Bosnian who shot and killed American soldiers in Frankfurt, was a Facebook friend of various known Islamist radicals.

Another known example is the Internet activity that followed Mohamed Merah’s attack killing four Jews in Toulouse a number of months ago. Monitoring the web, Prof. Weimann has observed that immediately after Merah was killed in a police siege, members of Jihadist online forums began praising Merah’s act and encouraged additional acts like it. A Facebook page praising the killings was promptly created and by the time it was closed down with the involvement of the French government, 500 Facebook users had joined it. According to Prof. Weimann, it is these types of forums and activity that must be monitored to locate and identify the next “lone wolf”.

Wait, so you're telling me terrorists use the internet and are on social networking sites like Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter? Who knew?

Cornhole Watch: Brit Muslim Convicted of Rape and Sexual Abuse

Although the story doesn't mention the Muslim thing its not like Shabir Ahmed's group were part of the Penny Mob.

The jailed leader of a Rochdale sex ring has received a further term of 22 years for 30 child rape charges.

Shabir Ahmed, 59, of Oldham, was one of nine men convicted of sex offences against children at Liverpool Crown Court in May.

This is in addition to his prior sentence of 19 years. But the judge is allowing him to serve those sentences concurrently. So probably not a lot of extra time.
The jury was told that Ahmed, of Windsor Road, had treated his victim as a "possession" using her for his own sexual gratification and that the girl had been abused on "an almost weekly basis".

Ahmed was one of the nine men from Rochdale and Oldham who were found guilty of exploiting girls as young as 13 at two takeaway restaurants in the Heywood area of Rochdale.

He was convicted at Liverpool Crown Court of two rapes, aiding and abetting rape, sexual assault and trafficking for the purposes of sexual exploitation.

One can only hope that by the time Shabir gets out of prison, his rectum will be in prime condition for Jihad.

Twins Jailed for Fake Charity Fundraising for Terrorism

There's something about twins that can make any story of terrorism that much creepier. I blame Stephen King:

Identical twin brothers who posed as charity collectors to raise thousands of pounds for overseas Al-Qaeda fighters were jailed yesterday.

Shabir and Shafiq Ali, 25, imitated legitimate fundraisers on street stalls collecting money for Palestinians and the world’s poor.

But the pair were in fact wiring money to their elder brother after he travelled to Somalia to join the bloody Islamic insurgency....

They were inspired by Al-Qaeda hate preacher Anwar Al-Awlaki, the mastermind behind a series of bomb attacks who was killed in a drone strike last year.

Meanwhile, over at The New Yorker, more stupidity on al-Awlaki's killing.

Under this logic then al Qaeda's next strategic move would be to exclusively recruit Americans. That way we wouldn't be able to kill any of them for fear of hurting the liberal sensitivities of Manhattanites,the ACLU, and any one else who wants to replace drones with airdropped federal marshals delivering summons notices to caves in tribal Pakistan.

Arab Spring! "Moderate" Islamists Propose Outlawing Blasphemy

I'm told by liberals, multiculturalists, and social relativists that so-called "moderate Islamism" is the hope of the Arab world. Apparently the Tunisians didn't get the memo:

The ruling moderate, Islamist party Ennahda proposed a new bill that would ban blasphemy in Tunisia, yesterday August 1. In an interview with Shems FM, Habib Khedher, a member of Ennahda and the Constituent Assembly, stated that violators of the law could be sentenced to up to two years in jail, while repeat offenders could be sentenced to as many as four years in prison.

According to a report by the Associated Press, the new law is proposed by Ennahda, and would make “insults, profanity, derision, and representation of Allah and Mohammed,” illegal.

You know what would solve world hunger? The annihilation of Israel

Oh, how we long for the coming golden age when the lamb shall lie down with the lion, every child shall have a guardian kitteh, and every hungry family shall have their bellies filled with Chic-fil-a sandwiches. And in order to do this we must annihilate Israel. Or so says the President of Iran:

n a speech published on his website Thursday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said the ultimate goal of world forces must be the annihilation of Israel...

Ahmadinejad added that "liberating Palestine" would solve all the world's problems, although he did not elaborate on exactly how that might work.

“Qods Day is not merely a strategic solution for the Palestinian problem, as it is to be viewed as a key for solving the world problems," he said.

He added: "Anyone who loves freedom and justice must strive for the annihilation of the Zionist regime in order to pave the way for world justice and freedom.”

Just Say No To Olympic Sharia

Daily Mail:

Four topless activists from a women's rights group were arrested today after they carried out a protest in central London.

Police were called to City Hall to deal with the protesters, who had accused the Olympics' governing body of having supported 'bloody' Islamist regimes.

It said: 'Femen requires the states that apply the laws of sharia be shut out of the Olympic games, because of the inhumanity of these laws, which are in total contradiction with Olympic principles that are peace and philanthropy.

With the support of the IOC, these Islamist governments use the participation of women in the Olympic games to hide thousands of victims and dead.

'If the IOC keeps flirting with radical Islam, new Olympic disciplines, such as stoning or speed raping will be added to the competition.'

Not only do I like boobies, I also agree with their assessment of Sharia.

The actions of Mr. Smith do not reflect our corporate values in any manner. Vante is an equal opportunity company with a diverse workforce, which holds diverse opinions. We respect the right of our employees and all Americans to hold and express their personal opinions, however, we also expect our company officers to behave in a manner commensurate with their position and in a respectful fashion that conveys these values of civility with others.

We hope that the general population does not hold Mr. Smith’s actions against Vante and its employees.

'Ultralight' Terrorists? Spain Says Al Qaeda Planned Airborne Attack

Cornhole Watch On #FAIL Mujahideen

Spanish police arrested three suspected al Qaeda operatives Wednesday out of fear they planned an airborne attack in Europe, according to Spain's interior minister, Jorge Fernandez Diaz.

While local authorities have arrested dozens of alleged militants since 2004, when a key Madrid train station was attacked, Spanish media reported these were the first caught with explosives, meaning they had become an operational cell.

The three suspects -- two from ex-Soviet republics and a Turk -- had timers and enough explosives to blow up a bus, Diaz said in a press conference in Madrid. Police believe at least two of those arrested had practiced flying small "ultralight" airplanes or using small drones, Diaz said.

[Continue reading]

According to Haaretz
The suspects were arrested in Cadiz and Ciudad Real, two of them on a bus en route to France.

Spanish police told El Paiz that explosive materials found in the home of the Turk was strong enough to "completely destroy a bus".

At least one of the suspects was trained at a terrorist camp in Pakistan, according tp Spanish media. The organization had apparently been seeking out Spanish-speaking "lone wolves" in Saudi Arabia, according to El Pais.

Someone said: "there will be an explosion in their Jihanuseses, just not the kind they were expecting ;-)"

In addition, the Chairman of the PA Supreme Court for Shari'ah Law said PA law should prohibit even non-Muslims and those who cannot fast for health reasons from eating in public during the month. Sheikh Yusuf Ida'is explained: "Our streets are Islamic," and formal legislation should be enacted to "severely punish" anyone who eats publicly during Ramadan.

ICNA Embraces America's Favorite Salafi Preacher

qadhi_icna_2012.jpg

Via IPT

Yasir Qadhi, billed by the New York Times as "one of the most influential conservative clerics in American Islam," recently told one of the nation's largest Islamic conferences that the Quran "destroys" American capitalism.

"Who amongst us would have predicted five years ago that this nation would despise and hate the very [economic] system that they used to claim was the reason for their success?" he asked hundreds at a session of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA)'s national conference in late May. "Now the system has been destroyed and demolished. Now 99 percent of America is saying Occupy Wall Street."

"This is a Pharonic society that we enjoy the pyramids, but you cannot enjoy pyramids without millions of slaves. And this is what this society has become," Qadhi said, repeating a classic Muslim metaphor for a society filled with corruption. Although his speech was intended to introduce a Somali charity worker, Qadhi used his time to call for converting America and radically altering its culture.[...]

Qadhi didn't limit his comments to attacking America's economic system. He argued that had the Muslims engaged OWS protesters, they might have taken control of the movement and made huge gains in converts.[More...]

Ahh, OWS, Islamofacists heart you. How fitting.

Are We Safer Since Obama Got Elected?

I actually don't buy much of what these guys are selling. Overall Obama has been the worst President of the last 50 years (have you checked out those national debt numbers lately?), but the one area where I think Obama gets at least a C and has surprised me the most is his handling of terrorism.

Could he have done better? Sure. And most of his achievements really come from the fact that he's allowed Bush era policies to continue. Which, to be honest, I thought he was going to pull the plug on from day one.

Call it grading a President on the curve of extremely low expectations.

Over the past few years I've changed positions on closing Guantanamo and civilian trials for terrorists. The track record at Justice in locking up terrorists with long sentences is actually better than the military tribunals -- both under Bush and Obama.

We have dozens of convicted potential terrorists rotting in super-max prisons thanks to the FBI and DOJ. People convicted based only on intention. At the same time we have dozens of actual terrorists who had actually taken up arms and participated in violent jihad, but who the military decided to let go. Many of these have returned to jihad, including al Qaeda.

So, the empirical evidence just doesn't mesh with my expectations about what I thought would happen in civilian courts vs. military courts. I expected that Constitutional rights, lawyers and juries would mean lesser sentences and jihadis getting off on technicalities. I expected that the military would be more gung ho in executing swift and harsh justice.

It turns out, our civilian judges and juries are much harsher and swifter than military commissions. This is true both under the Bush era commissions and the reconstituted ones presently used.

So, I was wrong on that point and those still belaboring it seem to have be ignoring what is actually happening in our courts.

However, the points about closing black sites and ending harsh interrogation are well made. On this Obama was wrong, and he and the Left continue to be in a state of denial over the value of these two programs.

And yes, I do think ending these programs have made us less safe. But only marginally so.

I think this is balanced by the fact that Obama didn't stop drone strikes and, in fact, allowed the CIA to expand the Bush-era program.

So, not an A or a "B+", but a solid back row just getting by by the skin of his teeth C on terrorism.

I've also pointed out more than once the odd hypocrisy that Obama thinks its wrong to hurt someone suspected of being a terrorist or of detaining them, but he has no problem killing them. A dead terrorist gives us no intel, that is true, but a dead terrorist is also a good terrorist.

There's something cathartic about that. In the ideal world you'd first gather intel from a terrorist and then kill them. Win-win as far as I'm concerned. But we don't live in an ideal world and sometimes just knowing that they're dead is good enough.

Anyway, here's the ad. Judge for yourself.

PS -- I think that foreign policy and handling of the war in Afghanistan are related but separate issues brought up by the ad. So, don't take the above post to imply that I think he's doing an adequate job on either of those. Especially on his handling of Afghanistan, Obama has been abysmal.

The press is having fun today amplifying the complaint of Palestinian "negotiator" Saeb Ereikat that comments Mitt Romney made in Jerusalem yesterday are "racist." What was Romney's offense? In the course of expressing amazement at Israel's economic miracle, he merely pointed out that cultural differences lead to differences in economic performance.

The funny thing is, there's another candidate for president who has also made this point, and in fact made it repeatedly over the past few years. That candidate is the current president, Barack Obama.

In his famous 2009 “Speech to the Muslim World” in Cairo, he said:

“But all of us must recognize that education and innovation will be the currency of the 21st century -- and in too many Muslim communities, there remains underinvestment in these areas.”

He pointed out that "a woman who is denied an education is denied equality... And it is no coincidence that countries where women are well educated are far more likely to be prosperous."

Of course both are right. No one can be blamed for the current state of Arab Muslim nations except the Muslim Arabs that live there.

Well except for the Jews, Amerikkka, England, global warming, Luxembourg, Elvis and Jello Pudding. But mostly Elvis.

Religion of Peace Roundup

You could say there were only 10,283 attacks by Islamic terrorists last year, that's down by over 1000. Or you could say al-Qaeda is building operational capability.

Muhammad Zawahiri credits al-Qaeda for inspiring Arab Spring, which removed the despotic Arab Regimes that were, you know, preventing the proper killing of Jews.

Somali twins admit UK terror fundraising.

These and other just wonderful updates at Intelwire.
