2 Dead, 1 Wounded In Shooting At VFW Post In Florida
WINTER SPRINGS, Fla. – Police say two people are dead and another is injured after a shooting at a central Florida Veterans of Foreign Wars post.
Winter Springs Police said a charity motorcycle ride was supposed to depart from the post when the shooting broke out Sunday morning while the riders were eating breakfast. The Orlando Sentinel reports an unknown number of armed men came in and began firing. It's unclear if any of the attendees shot back.
Brandon Web Navy SEAL Chris Hagerman @SOFREP: September 11, 2001 - My Story
As the month of September comes to an end, I find myself reflecting on the events of September 11, 2001. So many things changed for America that day. Over a period of two hours, most of us watched as the World Trade Towers were turned into a pile of steel and burning debris, a major section of the Pentagon was reduced to rubble, and American Airlines Flight 93 plummeted to the earth. America was in a state of shock; most people were glued to their televisions or listened to their radios as the events unfolded. Every one of us remembers what we were doing during that horrific time, and I, like others, often reflect back on that day to remind myself who we are fighting and why.I remember the attack as clear today as when it happened 11years ago.
This day unified America, though sadly, only for a short period of time. Some were motivated to join the military to answer the call of duty, or were inspired by the bravery of our New York City firefighters, police officers, and emergency service personnel and join their ranks. There were many of us who had to answer all of the questions of our children – those innocent faces who asked, “Why?”. Our world changed forever.
Our country was rocked to the core that clear, sunny morning and I felt our loss deeply. That cowardly attack was an attack on my heart and soul. Those who died that day were my countrymen, my brothers and sisters – every one of them. Each of us experienced that day a different way, but what was amazing to me is that despite all of our differences, we stood strong and united as Americans. This is my story of that day.
I will never forget - I will never forgive

Univision To Air Tonight (7:00 p.m. ET/PT (6 p.m. Central)) The Untold Story Behind The "Fast and Furious" Scandal..
In July and August I worked on a post for Big Government about the human aspect of Operation Fast & Furious, the government gun walking operation that put guns into the hands of already dangerous Mexican drug cartels. The Old Media largely ignores Fast & Furious, but when they do pay attention, they scarcely mention the victims. Not until I put an enormous amount of pressure on The New York Times did they start saying "Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry" instead of just "a border patrol agent."I remember watching Obama, when attending a town hall with Univision, he was asked why he didn't fire Eric Holder. Obama went into a speel and lied by saying GW started the program.
TomorrowToday[ed], September 30, Univision will be airing “Aqui y Ahora” (Here and Now) about Fast & Furious. It will document the people who lost their lives because of this program. Univision’s investigative unit found many more deaths linked to Fast & Furious and will talk about them during the special, including the killing of 16 young people at a party.
“Well, first of all, I think it’s important for us to understand that the Fast and Furious program was a field-initiated program begun under the previous administration,” said President Obama.We are in a sad state of affairs when it takes Univision to investigate the Fast and Furious scandal.
Fast and Furious started in November 2009. Someone needs to remind President Obama he was president at that time, not President Bush. He also claimed Mr. Holder has held people accountable for their actions. However, no one has been held accountable. People have been allowed to resign quietly or reassigned to another position. No one has been fired. No one has been charged with any crime.
Video: 'Absolutely Uncertain' If Obama Will Have Israel's Back
A new, 18-minute mini-documentary follows the journey of Irina, a 23-year-old liberal, Jewish New Yorker who voted for Obama in 2008. Yet as her connection to Israel has grown, and she has learned more about the President's policies across the Middle East and towards Israel in particular, Irina has come to realize that "when the chips are down," the President may not "have Israel's back" as he says.
The short film features:

Quote Of The Day
An apparently remorseful Lee Boyd Malvo said something I thought especially inspiring and profound:
"Don't allow myself or Muhammad to continue to make you a victim for the rest of your life. It isn't worth it."
I don't intend to allow radical followers of Islam to victimize me. And I don't intend to sit back and ignore it while they victimize others, either.
(In case you don't recognize the name, Malvo is one of the convicted D.C. snipers.)

Texas Teacher Claims Victimization in Student Sex Case - Update
(Fort Worth, Texas) Last month, former Kennedale High School teacher Brittni Colleps was convicted on 16 counts of improper sexual relations with students for engaging in an orgy with five of her students.
As a result, Colleps was sentenced to five years in prison.
The most damning evidence against Colleps was that graphic, homemade videotape of her group sex.Although Texas law forbids teachers from engaging in sex with students, controversy regarding the Colleps case has surfaced because the male students were at least 18 years of age. (h/t Howie)
"I felt like I was victimized in that video, because I did not, I never gave my consent for it,” Colleps said in a jailhouse interview with “20/20” airing Friday night.

Canadian GITMO Detainee Omar Khadr Arrives In Canada
October of 2010 Khadr cops a plea for killing one of our finest and bravest in Afghanistan. His sentence was reduced to - 8 f'n years. "He was young and didn't know better" bs.
The youngest prisoner to be held at the Guantanamo Bay detention centre has been returned to his native Canada.After serving the rest of his 8 f'n years he will be free to do it again. While at GITMO he relished killing one of our finest and bravest: ""[While in custody] he would recall his killing of the US soldier and it would make him feel good"
Omar Khadr had been held at the US base in Cuba since 2002, after being detained in Afghanistan aged 15.
A military plane flew Khadr, the last Westerner at Guantanamo, to Canada early on Saturday.
He will serve the rest of his eight-year jail term in Canada. He pleaded guilty to killing a US soldier in Afghanistan.
Khadr left the prison on a US military plane and arrived at a Canadian air base in Trenton in Ontario province, from where he was transferred to the Millhaven maximum prison, Public Safety Minister Vic Toews told a news conference[...]
'Known al-Qaeda supporter'
The Khadrs have been called Canada's "first family of terror".
Omar Khadr's father, an associate of Osama Bin Laden, took the family to Peshawar, in Pakistan, to support the Afghan mujahideen in their war against the Soviets when Khadr was a child. The father died in a firefight with Pakistani troops near the Afghan border in 2003.
One brother is paralysed from the waist down after being wounded in that same battle. Another has just been released from jail in Toronto after successfully fighting extradition to the US on terror charges.
Omar Khadr's sister Zaynab and mother Maha are well-known in Canada for their extremist views.
1986: Born in Toronto
1996: Family moves to Jalalabad, Afghanistan, where it allegedly has regular encounters with Osama Bin Laden and other al-Qaeda leaders
2002: Khadr captured during clash between US and Afghan soldiers, and small group of militants
2007: Charged with murder, attempted murder, conspiracy, providing support to terrorism and spying
2008: Video shows Khadr being questioned by Canadian officials, and complaining of being denied access to proper medical treatment
2010: Pleads guilty and is sentenced to 40 years in prison, reduced to eight
2012: Returns to Canada

SFC Speer's Killer Leaves Gitmo
Northeastern U's Muslim Chaplain Removed After Video Exposes Support for Terrorists
In what may be the first time a Muslim religious figure was removed from a campus position by a university administration, Boston’s Northeastern University told Imam Abdullah Faaruuq that his services as chaplain for Muslim students were “no longer needed.” This happened just days after we published an expose documenting that Faaruuq is a supporter of convicted Islamist terrorists who is inciting Boston Muslims against the U.S government.Democrat Gov Deval Patrick of Massachusetts didn't appear to have a problem with this terror supporting Imam:
Our findings about Imam Faaruuq are summarized in our video: www.nuextremism.com. It shows that there is a culture of extremism at the Islamic Society of Northeastern University (ISNU) – the Muslim student group on campus that Faaruuq led as its “spiritual adviser.”
Among other extremist activity he brings to campus, Faaruuq has been active in a movement seeking to free convicted Al Qaeda terrorist Aafia Siddiqui and Tarek Mehanna. The video shows FBI Director Robert Mueller describing Siddiqui in 2004 as one of the seven most wanted Al Qaeda terrorists. Aafia Siddiqui, a young Pakistani-born MIT student, got involved with an Al Qaeda cell while in Boston. In 2008, she was arrested in Afghanistan and charged with attempted murder of FBI agents. In her possession were plans for a chemical attack on New York City and a large amount of cyanide. In 2010, she was convicted and sentenced to 86 years in jail.
On May 22nd, Massachusetts Governor Patrick embraced the radical leadership of the Muslim American Society (MAS), including Imam Abdullah Faarooq who told followers they must "pick up the gun and the sword" in response to the arrests of local Islamic extremist Aafia Siddiqui and terror suspect Tarek Mehanna. Full sermon by Imam Faaruuq is available here:Gov Patrick was one of the "rock stars" at the Democratic National Convention. His words "this election is the most important of our lifetime" rings true. Not for them but for us. Obama needs to go, like yesterday.

Canada: Muslim Mother Attempts Honor Killing
No doubt, Bahar likely considered her Muslim mother to be a moderate, not a savage...
As her crying husband spoke to Bahar in the basement of their Dorval home, Ms. Kaleki went upstairs and grabbed a large knife from the kitchen counter, the one she used to chop meat, she recounted. “I said, ‘This is the time.’ ”
She hid the knife under her T-shirt, returned to the basement, and told her husband the problem would best be resolved between mother and daughter. “Just leave us alone for five minutes,” she said she told him. “Don’t come until I call you.”
He left and she cuddled her first-born and told her to lie on her stomach so she could give her a back massage. “Then I stab her, stab her neck,” she confessed. “She said, ‘No Mom!’ I said, ‘It’s for your good. Let me finish.’ ”
Thank goodness the girl's father had the sense to stop the attack.
What led to this savage violence against a defenseless young girl? Maybe this:
A few months earlier, when Ms. Kaleki discovered Bahar was being harassed by an ex-boyfriend, she blamed her daughter. After speaking to the boy once on the phone, Ms. Kaleki decided he sounded like “a very good Muslim guy” and told Bahar he would make a good husband. “Probably you’ve done something to drive him crazy,” she told her. “I know you. You’re my daughter.” Bahar refused the idea of marriage, calling the boy a “psycho.”
A marriage refusal to a "very good Muslim" boy her mother spoke to once over the phone. That would set any parent off on a killing rampage...

Source Revealed Why Abdulmutallab's (aka Crispy Crotch) Underwear Was 'Moist'...
DETROIT (WXYZ) - In an exclusive interview with two FBI agents who cracked the case, 7 Action News Investigator Scott Lewis has new details that never came to light because "Underwear Bomber" Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab pleaded guilty to avoid a trial.Well, how do we know the underwear he previously wore was changed daily?!?
Abdulmutallab is the Nigerian man who tried to take down a jumbo jet over metro Detroit on Christmas Day in 2009.
Among other surprises the agents revealed that Abdulmutallab was working for Al-Qaeda, but he was not recruited by the terrorist organization.
FBI agents also say the Underwear Bomber might have inadvertently foiled his own plot because of his obsession about making sure the bomb would not be detected[...]
Surprisingly Abdulmutallab admitted he was a suicide bomber affiliated with Al-Qaeda. He told them what kind of device it was, said he was acting alone, and there were no other suicide bombers in the air.
"The world was on notice at that point; we may be under attack. We were able to share information pretty rapidly to alleviate some of that concern," Peissig says.
Agents say Abdulmutallab is exceptionally bright, well educated and good on his feet. On the way to the U.S. there were several times when he could have been tripped up and detected but he smooth-talked his way through. His obsession to detail is what apparently caused his suicide mission to fail.
Agents say he wore the underwear bomb for three weeks straight to get comfortable with it and make sure it would not be detected. They say he removed his specially modified underwear only to shower.
"So basically for three weeks he wore this garment, these underwear with this device in it. We think ultimately that is probably what caused the disruption in the sequence of events in the explosion," recalls Peissig.
Thankfully, he had bad bomb grooming habits.
Obama Hands Big Oil 1.8 Billion Per Year
As Victor Davis Hanson wrote in February, “Now What? The Obama administration’s real problem is existential: What if it gets what it wants, but then finds that either it or the country really is uncomfortable with what it got?”What the administration says it wants of course is to screw big oil and help out the little guy. Right? I mean isn't that the leftist narrative.
So there's Obama himself dogging the profits, saying a 1 cent increase in gas prices earn oil companies $200,000,000 per quarter. If you take the increase since Obama took office, $2.26 that adds up to 1.8 trillion $1,808,000,000.00 per year in increased profits.
Its like I explained to my son the other day. The liberal Democrats will tell you they are for the little guy. They are there to help. But if you are an oil company taking a percentage of the sale price as profit, which makes more profits? The higher price or the lower price? Of course even in the midst of the fog of teenage rebellion he was able to comprehend that paying more sucked.
The same is true for the little guy, what is better for your pocket book and freedom of travel. Less regulation and lower prices or course.
The world is full of paradoxes like that. That those who pay lip service to the evil oil companies, who describe higher energy prices as the right thing to do. Who claim to want to help the poor actually act opposite the interest of those them claim to support and in the interest of those who they claim to oppose.
Even Obama's current argument that no incentive is needed to encourage more exploration and production because the current price would support more exploration without incentives is flawed. Without such incentives the oil companies could just not explore and let the upward pressure on prices allow them to make more and more money on less and less supply.
One thing for sure Obama is always for higher oil prices and profits, unless its getting close to November during an election year. Tell me I'm wrong.
Hat Tip: Instapundit.
The Afghan Insult to Christians
This Christian symbol which indicates that Christians follow Jesus' teaching to be fishers of men is considered by Muslims to be a Mark of the Beast. I can't really think of a bigger insult to Christians than labeling them Anti-Christ.
Michael Yon: We like to think that after a decade of counterinsurgency, we have learned something. Have we? What does a cross on a helicopter mean? For some Afghans, it’s a mark of the beast. The poster above was hanging on a wall in eastern Afghanistan.While Islam demand that all others respect its books and symbols, such as the Moon God symbol of Allah and the Koran, not to mention the false prophet Muhammad, follower and prophet for the the Prince of Lies.
Of the approximate fifty evil symbols, most are crosses. Even the shape of an anchor is seen as unholy.
An Afghan friend translates:*Destroying the cross is an Islamic obligation*
1. Christians want to publish and spread their unholy and cursed religious logos and signs in different shapes and appearances in clean and holy Muslim society.
2. These Christianity signs (Crosses) have affected our Islamic society too
– even our mosques and our Menbers are not safe from those Christianity signs (Crosses).
Islam affords Christians and all other faiths no such courtesy.

MTA Sides With #ProudSavage
Mona Eltahawy, self proclaimed "liberal Muslim" and "#ProudSavage," scored a major victory against free speech. Her act of vandalism and assault spurred Metropolitan Transit Authority in New York to ban controversial advertisements. They haven't banned all political advertisements, only the ones that “would imminently incite or provoke violence or other immediate breach of the peace.”
In other words, advertisements against Jews, right-wingers, Conservatives, Republicans, Christians, etc. will continue to be displayed because these groups do not protest with violence or by breaching the peace.
The MTA is essentially rewarding savage behavior and punishing civilized, legal political displays.

Is Obamaphone Lady A Bussed In SEIU Protester Being Paid $11 An Hour?
A tale of two videos. First is the now famous Obamaphone lady. The second is of bussed in SEIU protesters outside the same Romney rally. The same person uploaded the videos to YouTube.
Same interviewer, same crowd, same Romney event. Although I don't see her in the second video I can only surmise that Obamaphone Lady was paid $11.00 an hour to protest. And she got her Obamaphone free.
Because she doesn't have a job. Supposedly.

PM Netanyahu Used a Visual Aid Of A "Red Line" During His Address To The UN General Assembly
My first impression when I saw the "bomb drawing" was of a certain turbaned guy, but that's just me.
There are a lot of "for" and "against" his use of a"cartoon" drawing.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu brought a visual aid with him today to the United Nations General Assembly. During his speech the Israeli Prime Minister explained the Iranian regime had already completed the first stage on their way to a nuclear bomb. The regime is working on the second stage. Netanyahu urged the members to draw a red line before the Iranians complete the second stage of their program.Due to the number of idiots at the UN I thought his drawing and explanation of the red line was right on.
Update: The photos the Associated Press of Terrorists and al-Reuters sent out to the wires shows Bibi in a Nazi salute.
What, were they offended of the bomb drawing?
Awesome: Faith Based Initiative Now Means Helping Muslim Brotherhood
Or at least that's what I think is the implication of Muslim Brotherhood supporter Hisham Y. Altalib going to the White House to meet Joshua DuBois, the director of President Obama’s Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.
Malkin sums it up like this:
This administration’s idea of domestic “faith-based outreach” is tea with Muslim Brotherhood community organizers who have embedded themselves in American life for four decades with the express intent of “eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within.” Meanwhile, our commander in chief is squawking to the world about YouTube videos. The Ikhwan are laughing their bloodstained robes off.
Note to Jeff (Inside Baseball) On the Irrelevance of Minor Blogs
I don't think it's you. The problem is the corporatizating of blogs.
Very few true blogs remain. In fact, can you name a true big blog that still remains a blog in it's truest sense -- independent and unmediated by editors?
I can think of two offhand. So, it's not a shunning. Not intentional. At least, not outside of the narrow blog wars we find ourselves in sometimes. It's just the new corporate reality of blogging.
We're Mel's Diner in a McDonalds world. We're not part of the supply chain. We just don't matter that much any more.
I'm not complaining, but I'd be lying if I didn't pine for the good old days when blogs were independent and pretty much every time I blegged for a link all the biggies would do it no questions asked.
It also makes for a much less interesting blogosphere. One which is increasingly looking like a minor reflection of Fox News.
But I for one welcome our new corporate overlords. So, Townhall, call me.
Man Cures Friend's Hiccups By Shooting Him In The Face

"The victim had the hiccups. The suspect pulled out a gun to scare him in order to stop the hiccups," said spokesman Carroll Smith of the Killeen, Texas, Police Department.

El Jueves Satirical Magazine Makes Fun Of Rage Boys
I really don't think Islamists understand "satire". Hell, they hadn't even seen the Innocence of Muslims video and they still went crazy as shit.
El Jueves, a Spanish satirical magazine, dedicates its front page to the riots in the Islamic World caused by the various representations of the Prophet.The magazines Facebook page, which shows the cover, has a lot of "dislikes" such as "f**k you bast**ds.
The riots were sparked by a video deemed blasphemous and cartoons published by French magazine Charlie Hebdo. This week, the Spanish weekly jokes around with the controversy.
In the cartoon that appears on the cover, various Muslims appear in a lineup under the title: "But does anyone knows what Muhammad looks like?".
Mayte Quílez, editor of El Jueves, told El Huffington Post that the cover "does not intend to portray Muhammad". "It's a parody of the situation we are experiencing" in Islamic countries.
"If you can’t depict Muhammad, how do you know it is him in the cartoons?" she asks.
El Jueves is posting different images to show how they make fun of everyone. For instance, Jews.
I tried to check their website out but it appears they are experiencing problems.
My tab reads: "El Jueves "Las Vegas Edition":

Pink Vaginas Are Going To South Waziristan To Protest CIA Drone Strikes
Yes, South f'n Waziristan. How they plan to make it into that area, I have no clue.
[ZIP]USA 26 September 2012: Seven Members of Veterans For Peace are part of a 40-member delegation organized by Code Pink and planning to be in Pakistan between September 28th and October 10th. VFP members Leah Bolger, Dave Dittemore, Bill Kelly, Jody Mackey, Rob Mulford, and Ann Wright will meet with drone victims’ families, elected officials, tribal elders, and residents of South Waziristan, where U.S. drone strikes have killed thousands, while injuring and making refugees of many more. Code Pink’s Medea Benjamin is an associate member of VFP.[More..]Yeah, the Taliban just love them some more so called NGO's necks to saw off, before they rape/sodomize them. Hell, they may even make it onto YouTube in a hostage video. Canadian and owner of Jihad Unspun, Beverly Giesbrecht (aka Khadija Abdul Qahaar), WAS a Taliban sympathizer. She died while in their captivity.
They better not get any of our guys killed saving their sorry asses. Or, f'up a drone strike in the area.
This is probably related: South Waziristan Peace March: PTI Prepares for Oct 6th With High Hopes
DI KHAN:Unbelievably f'n stupid liberal dhimmis.
On October 6, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) will march to South Waziristan with an estimated crowd of over 100,000 people, but many rival political parties of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) remain unconvinced about the likelihood of the rally.
The PTI’s organiser for South Waziristan Agency, Ajab Gul Wazir, told The Express Tribune that the march was keeping in tune with the preferences of the tribal people. The PTI has expressed its desire to sympathise with the unsuspecting victims of the ‘war on terror’. “Like the tribal people, we want to get out of this war,” said Wazir. “We have no security worries. We are marching with the tribes and not against them.”
PTI chief Imran Khan has also constantly played down security risks in the area. He claims that ground realities show that there are in fact less security risks in South Waziristan than in the settled areas In press conferences, he has also stipulated that the increased presence of security check posts along the road leading from Tank to South Waziristan will reduce threats. The PTI hopes that a strong presence of the Pakistan Army in the area will help the rally run smoother. The PTI Women’s Wing Central President, Fauzia Kasuri, has also claimed that women will attend the march, despite security risks.
Earlier, media reports surfaced that Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) members had threatened to kill the PTI leader if he entered the area. However, the TTP retracted the statement, saying that it would make a decision about its stance at a date closer to the march.

The diplomat, identified as Deputy Foreign Minister Ramin Nodehi Karast Mehman, was on foot when he was surrounded by anti-Iranian protesters Wednesday afternoon, NYPD Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne told FoxNews.com.
“He got separated from his motorcade," Browne said. "Presumably, he might have been somewhat frightened by the encounter.”
The desperate deputy despot flagged down a police officer who helped him get to safety, according to Browne.[More...]
Update: A comment on this video
the guy getting kicked and cursed at is Memandoost, the speaker of Iranian foreign ministry. He had joined the cowered Ahmadinejad ( the fake president of Iran ) at the today. After they walked out of UN, this dude and another guy ( Hezbolahi dude) decided to take a walk by the protesters. You see the rest on the video, he deserved every bit of this and more. I am happy THE NYPD stood strong and LET them get their ass kicked for a beautiful 4:40 seconds.Ha!

Admin Knew About Libya 9/11 Terror Attack, And What This Says About Obma's View of America (UPDATED w/ Correction)
I've been reluctant to talk about the Benghazi attack in which our ambassador, staffer, and
three two former special operators were murdered. Mostly because I suspected from the git go that this wasn't a mob that went bad, that it was the work of al Qaeda. I also suspected from day one that the three "private contractors" weren't there on a security detail, that they in Benghazi doing intelligence work. [UPDATE: Only two of them were former special operators, one, Sean "Vile Rat" Smith, was former Air Force but was there working in IT support]
This was a hit job. An al Qaeda assassination. And it was done on the anniversary of 9/11.
The reason for the reluctance is because this changes the narrative about the wisdom of having no Marines and a reduced security footprint at our Benghazi consulate.
Hindsight is always 20/20. In hindsight, of course we needed a larger security footprint. However, the imperative of protecting our diplomats must be weighed against another imperative: the need to gather intelligence on al Qaeda's presence in Libya.
And that, it would have seemed to those making the pre-attack decisions, was best served by our intelligence assets keeping a very low profile.
Benghazi, as the world is now learning, is the headquarters of Libya's al Qaeda affiliate where the group operated openly until at least last week. We needed to know what the group was up to, especially given the large numbers of arms that have gone missing in the now defunct Libyan army.
Benghazi, in other words, is not a safe place. But it is a place we needed to be.
Had I been making the calls prior to the consular attack, I think I would have stuck with low profile as well.
In other words, I don't fault the administration for failing to secure the consulate properly. Sometimes there is just no good move to make.
The four men who were killed died in the line of duty. At least three of them will have their names added to the unsung and unheralded heroes who died in the line of duty while on covert operations.
I don't fault the administration for their deaths. I fault al Qaeda.
Al Qaeda and their ilk suspect all Americans of being secret covert agents for the CIA. Which is why they so wholeheartedly kill any and all Americans they can capture in Muslim countries. They are simply paranoid.
But even the paranoid sometimes get it right. In this case the people they suspected of working against them really were.
Al Qaeda is to blame for these four deaths, not Obama.
But what does bother me is the reflexive way in which Obama blamed a movie for their deaths and not terrorists. What kind of a sick mind goes there? What kind of sick mind has the gut reaction of blaming American citizens exercising their First Amendment rights for the deaths of their compatriots abroad, and not those committing the actual acts of murder?
Our gut instincts sometimes turn out to be wrong. We should always be willing and ready to change our view of events when new information comes to light.
But I do think our initial reaction often reveals who we are at our core. And Obama's reaction to the murders in Benghazi really are revealing. They tell us that, at his core, Obama blames the ills of the world on America.
I didn't like Dinesh D'Souza's movie all that much. In my mind it went too far in trying to explain Obama's policies on a single factor. I came out of it dissatisfied.
But the Benghazi episode does suggest that D'Souza had it fundamentally right. That at least when it comes to foreign policy, Obama sees the US as the bad guy and the developing world as a victim of American neo-colonialism.
Americans were killed, and who was to blame for their deaths? Americans.
That is where Obama's gut goes. When in doubt, go directly to the default position of blame America first.
The man sickens me in this regard.
I think more telling than our default position, though, is just how recalcitrant we are in keeping that position as new information comes to light.
The longer it takes us to change our position when the facts contradict it, the more attached we are to our default position.
So, what to do with the news that within 24 hours the administration was receiving news that the Benghazi attack was probably done by al Qaeda, but that they kept their initial position that the attack was American induced mob violence for almost a week?
One way of dealing with it is to say that Obama lied and caused others to lie, because a terrorist attack on the anniversary of 9/11 would be politically damning.
But isn't another way of explaining the disconnect between the facts as they began to unfold and the administration's position that Obama wanted to believe that the movie was to blame?
We all do this. We don't want to admit that we are wrong because admitting that we are wrong goes against our world view. So we reject the facts because they do not fit our preconceived notions of the world.
In this case, that America is to blame.
So maybe Obama's only lie here is the one he tells to himself. That when Americans are attacked, that it is only the chickens coming home to roost.
As George Costanza taught us: it's not a lie if you believe it.
UPDATE: I've updated the post to reflect the fact that Sean "Vile Rat" Smith was in Benghazi not in security but with State as their IT guy. My apologies for not having the facts straight.
Video: Sitting With Iran
Video is by Let Freedom Ring USA:
A group critical of the president's foreign policy has unleashed an ad in key swing states accusing President Obama of favoring Iran over Israel, highlighting how U.S. officials didn't storm out of the United Nations this week when Iranian President Ahmadinejad said the Jewish state would be eliminated.
To be fair, the US 'boycotted' Ahmadinejad address to the UNGA today. I guess outcry over the above made them get their head of their assess.
For today, at least.

Egypt's Prez Morsi Wants Americans To Submit To Islam
Apparently a lot of YouTube viewers agree:
EngineerEg: Morsi is absolutely right, freedom of speech should not mean freedom to insult others. Should I be allowed under freedom of speech to start a rumor that your mother is whore, or that you're a homosexual when you're not? I don't think so. It should not be an absolute freedom that gives one the right to say whatever sick shit comes to anyone's mind and offend people left and right without a care in the world. Freedom of speech should mean freedom to express opinions in a decent civilized manner.Well, Morsi and "EngineerEg", prepare to be offended even more.
As for me, I will be stocking up on more popcorn.
A #ProudSavage is one who suppresses free speech in the name of free speech.
Enter Mona Eltahawy, an Egyptian-American activist, who decides to exercise her freedom of speech by defacing private property, assaulting a citizen defending that property, and then resisting arrest.

Survey: It's Only a War Crime When Republicans Do It
Also, Nuke the Terrorists!
A new poll shows that people are more likely to support the practice of harsh interrogation techniques under a Democratic administration then under a Republican one:
the poll numbers suggest that Americans have become more hawkish on counterterrorism policy since Barack Obama became president.And my favorite part?
Consider this: In an October 2007 Rasmussen poll, 27 percent of Americans surveyed said the United States should torture prisoners captured in the fight against terrorism, while 53 percent said it should not. In my YouGov poll, 41 percent said they would be willing to use torture -- a gain of 14 points -- while 34 percent would not, a decline of 19 points...
Respondents in 2012 are more pro-waterboarding, pro-threatening prisoners with dogs, pro-religious humiliation, and pro-forcing-prisoners-to-remain-naked-and-chained-in-uncomfortable-positions-in-cold-rooms....
Support for assassinating terrorists has also grown, though not as much as for torturing them. In part this is because assassinations have always been quite popular.
A quarter of all Americans are willing to use nuclear weapons to kill terrorists. No joke....Count me in that 25%.
To be honest, I threw in the nuclear bomb question on a lark, not expecting to find much. Boy, was I wrong.
So, I now have precisely one good reason to vote Obama.

Today's Fight Club assignment: produce a movie about the Prophet Mohammad. No, make that two movies:
Undaunted by the outcry over a YouTube trailer for "Innocence of Muslims," two ex-Muslim filmmakers are trying to develop separate feature-length biopics that would offer critical takes on Muhammad's life. Experts predict that those projects will trigger further anger and violence, as has accompanied nearly every attempt to portray the prophet in any media in recent decades. But some believe that the faith will inevitably embrace showing Muhammad on film as the best and most effective way to get his message to the masses.Tyler Durden would be so proud.

by far the fiercest demonstration took place in Green Bay's Lambeau Shrine parking lot where throngs of Packer faithful burned Texas flags and effigies of Roger Staubach as Lutheran pastors led them in chants of "Those who defame the Vince suck" and "Favre is Great."

Islamic Rage Boys Rage Because Of "Innocence of Muslims" & Mitt Romney
Yes Mitt Romney, I kid you not
[Al Arabiya]The film producers got exactly what they wanted by Jihad el-Khazen"Jihad" continued to bitch about what Romney made and paid in taxes.
In Lebanon, there is a saying [that loosely translates as]: Ember only hurts where it burns. In other words, pain – or harm – is only felt by those who are directly affected it by it[...]
On the same page, there was a story about protests in Pakistan against the foul anti-Islam film that insulted the Prophet, in which 20 people were killed. I had condemned the protests since day one, and I condemn them again today. The producers of the film are getting exactly what they wanted with the help of protesters blinded by ignorance.
Is there any better news for the enemies who produced the film to provoke Muslims, than to read that 20 Muslims here, ten there, and five elsewhere were killed while protesting their film, which is as vile as its producers are? The victims of these protests were Muslims, who were killed by Muslim policemen in Muslim countries, and did the exact bidding of the enemies of Islam and Muslims[...]
Before I forget, I want to note that the weekend edition of the Financial Times had published a story about Mitt Romney on its first page – the Republican candidate for the White House. The story angered me as much as Romney’s hawkish foreign policy and his alliance with war criminal Benjamin Netanyahu have done.
Romney supports Israel and Obama doesn't so Jihad needs to set the record straight with his readers or something.
Srzly, what in the hell are these people smoking for gawds sake, cow dung?

Why Was The Black Flag Of Jihad Flying In NYC On Sunday?
Islamists murdered four Americans in Benghazi and now the Muslim Day Parade sports the black flag of jihad?!?
[Update: Urban Infidel was at the parade has more images/videos here. The official magazine for the parade shows the Black Flag flying over the White House]
Related: Senator Tony Avello didn't like the rapping jihadette and stormed off the stage:
On a beautiful September Sunday afternoon, not far from the scene of the infamous Islamic jihad attack in lower Manhattan, Democrat New York State Senator Tony Avello came face-to-face with Muslim hatred for America and he did something that few people have the courage to do. He got up from his seat as a VIP Marshall of the 27th annual New York Muslim Parade and stormed off the stage in disgust!
Over one thousand Muslims in the audience and the large group of Muslim community leaders were shocked that the Senator would walk off the stage, even before it was his turn to speak. But, Tony Avella had enough of the blatant tirade of hate against America by "moderate" Muslim dignitary after by "moderate" Muslim dignitary and his love for America was more important than embarrassing a group of Muslim "wolves in sheep's clothing." Sure, the Muslim cultural jihadi's had the first amendment right to condemn America (which they could never do in their home countries) but Senator Avella had the right to exit, stage left!! Our hats are off to Senator Avella for taking a very public stand on a critically important issue. But a word of warning to the good Senator. The "wolves" will work their magic to lure you back into their den. If they succeed, your stand on principle for this great country, was for naught.Good on Senator Avella for doing the right thing.
Although, Obama would say, "it's because of the Innocence of Muslims video".
Obama can appease you assholes all he wants, not me.
Take your black flag and shove it up this:
As Obama said at the UN about "slandering your prophet, I guess I just did it and don't really give a shit.
How dare you fly your 'war flag' in NYC!
Obama: The Future Must Not Belong To Those Who Slander The Prophet Of Islam
The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. Yet to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see when the image of Jesus Christ is desecrated, churches are destroyed, or the Holocaust is denied. Let us condemn incitement against Sufi Muslims, and Shiite pilgrims. It is time to heed the words of Gandhi: “Intolerance is itself a form of violence and an obstacle to the growth of a true democratic spirit.” Together, we must work towards a world where we are strengthened by our differences, and not defined by them. That is what America embodies, and that is the vision we will support.
It is time to heed the words of Thomas Mann: “Tolerance becomes a crime when applied to evil.”
The future must never belong to those who would suppress freedom of speech, Mr. President. You, of all people, should know that.
I Thought Obama Did!
During an interview with Piers Morgan last night, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad explained that Osama bin Laden deserved a fair trial, instead of being shot to death by Navy SEALS.Didn't he get the message?

Maybe A'jad should tell Obama?
Maybe A'jad is too busy hanging gays and screaming Death to Israel/Death to America.

Note to Romney Camp: Start Sponsoring Real Housewives
Honey Boo-Boo and Family on TLC
Mitt Romney is right: we need to write off 47% of the electorate. Some of these people are stupid, some of utterly dependent on government, and others just don't do math.
The flip side of this is that Romney has 45% of the electorate in the bag. I'm voting for him. Most of you are voting for him. Every dollar spent on people like us is a dollar wasted.
So where should Romney, the RNC, and various PACs be spending there advertising dollars? Conventional wisdom says this money should be used in the swing states. In order to target the swing states, conventional wisdom tells us, massive amounts of money will be used to buy up air time in local markets in Ohio, Virginia, Florida, and elsewhere.
Money should be spent on these local markets. But not nearly as much as conventional wisdom suggests.
The fact is that every year fewer and fewer people are watching what local stations are broadcasting. If you are trying to reach people in Ohio, then one might be tempted to spend big money on the local ABC, NBC, CBS, and Fox affiliates.
But the truth is that on any given night the majority of TV watchers won't be watching the networks. For instance, last week's biggest hit was NBC's broadcast of NFL football. But that only garnered about 6% of the total households in America.
In other words, even on a big night 94% of people aren't tuned in to the networks.
So, what are they watching? Not the networks, that's for sure.
As cable and satellite TV have expanded the choices available to the consumer, more and more people find themselves watching programming more narrowly tailored to their tastes.
I, for one, watch a lot of the nerdy channels. Like History, National Geographic, Discovery, and Travel. Also, sports. My wife hates my shows.
Mrs. Shackleford watches a lot of those shows designed for the suburban wife. Reality shows on TLC and Bravo. I can't be in the same room as the TV when she has The Real Houswives on.
The only thing we have in common is that we never watch the networks any more. Never. The only exception to this rule being college football in my case.
We both figure that if a network show is good enough, it will make it into syndication and we'll catch it either late night (after the kids are asleep) or on Netflix.
Which is why it bothers me so much that I've seen precisely zero ads being run by the Romney camp on a single show I watch. Zero. Zilch.
My wife hasn't seen a single one either.
I have seen two Obama ads, though. One on CNN and one on ESPN. Cable networks that aren't bound by geography. Someone in the Obama campaign gets it.
This isn't rocket science. If you want to swing the swing voters, you have to go where they are. It's just lazy to assume that this means where they are is a reference to geography.
Geography no longer matters when it comes to TV.
Which is why Romney's people need to spend less money on broadcasters in Ohio, and more money on narrowcasters in the rest of the country.
Think of me as your typical in-the-bag Romney voter. Short of a dead prostitute in the back of Romney's limo, he can count on my vote.
Think of my wife as your typical kinda leaning Romney but finds politics distasteful and futile voter. If I didn't nag her I'm pretty sure she wouldn't vote at all.
The dirty little not-so-secret that the MSM doesn't like to talk about is that swing voters and true undecideds are also the least informed about politics.
How do you reach true swing voters like my wife? Advertise on The Real Housewives of (insert any city name here). Or her new favorite show, TLC's Honey Boo Boo.
Which is exactly where you'd expect to find those truly ignorant of politics and firmly embracing middle class values: watching the super rich leisure class and the very poor white trash make fools of themselves.
And the great thing about narrowcasters on cable and satellite is that they are much cheaper. Much, much cheaper. Which means the dollars spent are more effective.
So, Romney's people, I'm begging you, start spending your cash advertising on cable networks. Advertise on all the trash that passes for entertainment these days.
We are this close to winning this thing. But in order to put Mitt over the top you are going to have to accept the new media reality. And that reality is that spending all your money on geographically targeted campaigns is a big waste and could cost you the Presidency.
As distasteful as it might be, sponsoring reality TV shows about minor Kardashians is the best ticket to reaching the truly undecided voter in swing states.

Hello Abu Hamza, I'm Your Roommate Bubba
I love the smell of soap-on-a-rope in the morning:
He once described Britain as a "toilet" -- now, radical Muslim cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri is to be flushed out of the UK legal system and into a potential life sentence in America, the end of an era for perhaps London's most famous anti-Western preacher.It's about time. Let's just hope he's on the next plane out of Heathrow. I have a feeling he's going to find a federal prison less comfortable than the ones in the UK.
After nearly a decade of legal battles, a European court has ruled that the one-eyed, hook-handed al-Masri, who was convicted in a British court and jailed in 2006 for a variety of terror-related crimes, can be extradited to face terror charges in the U.S.
Which reminds me of the only funny joke from the movie Mallrats. It had to do with the Ben Affleck character having a certain predilection in which he lured vulnerable young women into having sex in an uncomfortable place.
The punchline being: You mean like in the back of a VW Bug?
Yeah, that was a good line.
Bad Ideas Never Die, They Just Recirculate in the UN
It's not a conspiracy when they openly tell you that they want to end freedom of speech and religion:
As the U.N. General Assembly convenes this week in New York, several leaders of mostly Muslim nations are suggesting that the world body consider sanctions on blasphemy, amid widespread protests against an amateur movie that denigrates Islam’s Prophet Muhammad.And who is leading the charge? Turkey's "moderate" Islamist leader:
“I am the prime minister of a nation, of which most are Muslims, that has declared anti-Semitism a crime against humanity. But the West hasn’t recognized Islamophobia as a crime against humanity. It has encouraged it,” Mr. Erdogan told reporters last week.I don't like laws outlawing anti-Semetism. But at least there's a basis for them in recent history. Unlike "Islamophobia" which has killed so few people that you'd really have to look long and hard to find an actual victim.
Turkey heads the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, a body of 57 nations, which has long pushed for a U.N. resolution condemning the “defamation of religion.”

Australian Jihadi Held Without Bail
A Melbourne man who was found with al-Qaeda magazines that described how to engage in violent jihad and gave tips on making bombs has been refused bail.Looking around we find that this person is a member of al-Furqan center in Melbourne. If you recall al-Furqan was also the name of al-Qaeda in Iraq's media distribution wing.
Adnan Karabegovic, 23, considered Australians to be "dirty convict pigs" and "filthy kafir" and was committed to a course of action that conflicted with the community, the Melbourne Magistrates Court has been told.
He was recorded in telephone intercepts speaking of his desire to smash a local Cambodian temple because the people there were "idol worshippers", the court heard at his bail application on Tuesday.
Karabegovic, who has been charged with collecting documents linked with the preparation of a terrorist act, also allegedly spoke of a wish to train in Bosnia.
Hat Tip: WebRadius.
Update by SH: There were terror raids across Melbourne which led to his arrest.
Islamic centre among properties raidedBTW, the jihadi arrested stated he only read the "opinions" in the Sammy inspired "Inspire al-Qaeda mag".
Among properties raided was the Al-Furqan Centre, an Islamic information centre in Springvale South.
The centre also engages in religious instruction and conducts lectures on Islam.
Its website carries videos of Islamist militia fighting in the Arab world, such as the uprising in Syria, separatists in Mali and reports of the Taliban infiltrating the Afghan army.
A Muslim Australian who occasionally prayed at the Al-Furqan Centre said they were a splinter group.
"The organisation itself has been around for a while, they have been on the fringes," the man said.
"They are a splinter group that decided to go their own way, they had their own ideologies and interpretations and the other stuff that goes with it."
"Opinions", yeah right.

What other potential valuable intelligence was left behind that could have been picked up by apparently anyone searching the grounds? Was any classified or top secret material also left? Do you still feel that there was adequate security at the compound, considering it was not only overrun but sensitive personal effects and possibly other intelligence remained out for anyone passing through to pick up? Your statement on CNN sounded pretty defensive--do you think it's the media's responsibility to help secure State Department assets overseas after they've been attacked?

New York Post Assembles Gift Basket For Ahmadinejad: 'Welcome to NYC, A'jad!'
This is a hilarious example of in yo face, bitch
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad arrived last night at the Warwick Hotel in Midtown in advance of his annual hate-spewing address to the UN General Assembly on Wednesday — and The Post tried to deliver him a gift fit for a despot.I can't stop laughing.
The anti-Semite’s special welcome basket — from New Yorkers with love — included such locally procured goodies as Gold’s Borscht, Manischewitz Gefilte Fish and smoked whitefish from the world-famous Murray’s Sturgeon House on the Upper West Side.
If Ahmadinejad (pronounced: I’m a dinner jacket) needed midnight munchies during his visit to this infidel city, there were also plenty of H&H bagels, onion bialys and Zabar’s cream cheese.
To cheer up the sourpuss hatemonger, there’s a $125 comped ticket to the off-Broadway play “Old Jews Telling Jokes” — booked in his name. It just might take the edge off his bloodthirsty desire to develop nuclear weapons and wipe Israel off the map.

Chris "Tingles" Matthews Further Slips From Reality; Claims Middle East 'Totally Peaceful' As It Has Been For 2,000 Years
Tingles lived in the Middle East (in Israel, of course) for a whole month and saw Jews and Muslims intermingling and "totally getting along" like they have been for 2,000 years:
“I went over and I lived a month in the Old City of Jerusalem…you have the guys in the black hats, the ultra-religious Jewish people…the Islamic people praying five times a day– all intermingling in the streets. Totally peaceful! It’s totally getting along together, it’s [been] going on for 2,000 years. People can live together with different religious beliefs.”
I wonder if he'd see that same peaceful mingling in other Middle East cities? Maybe in Tehran? How about Ramallah or Rafah? Or maybe even Mecca? Please, Tingles, please visit those cities and let us know how Jews and Muslims are living together with different religious beliefs.

Egyptian President Morsi Wants America To 'Fundamentally Change'..
It seems like only yesterday when Obama said "We are 5 days away from fundamentally transforming America".
Egypt’s New Leader Spells Out Terms for U.S.-Arab Ties[h/t @EricTrager18]
CAIRO — On the eve of his first trip to the United States as Egypt’s new Islamist president, Mohamed Morsi said the United States needed to fundamentally change its approach to the Arab world, showing greater respect for its values and helping build a Palestinian state, if it hoped to overcome decades of pent-up anger.What you are seeing here is the collapse of Obama's, the SCOAMF, "Cairo Doctrine"
A former leader of the Muslim Brotherhood and Egypt’s first democratically elected president, Mr. Morsi sought in a 90-minute interview with The New York Times to introduce himself to the American public and to revise the terms of relations between his country and the United States after the ouster of Hosni Mubarak, an autocratic but reliable ally.
[Charles Krauthammer]In the week following 9/11/12 something big happened: the collapse of the Cairo Doctrine, the centerpiece of President Obama’s foreign policy. It was to reset the very course of post-9/11 America, creating, after the (allegedly) brutal depredations of the Bush years, a profound rapprochement with the Islamic world.Obama, you built this.
Never lacking ambition or self-regard, Obama promised in Cairo, June 4, 2009, “a new beginning” offering Muslims “mutual respect,” unsubtly implying previous disrespect. Curious, as over the previous 20 years, America had six times committed its military forces on behalf of oppressed Muslims, three times for reasons of pure humanitarianism (Somalia, Bosnia, Kosovo), where no U.S. interests were at stake.[More...]
As for President Morsi:

In an unprecedented show of public anger at Libya's rampant militias, the crowd overwhelmed the compound of the Ansar Al-Shariah Brigade in the center of the eastern city of Benghazi.
Obama To Condemn The First Amendment Before The UN
Obama, stop your damn nonsense and man up for God's sake. The death of four Americans is on you and your administration's hands, not on the maker of that stupid video.
National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor previews the president's speech to the UN General Assembly next week:What's with "we reject" business? Sorry Obama, you do not speak for me in the "we". I am laughing at that stupid movie as is my right under the 1st Amendment. I am laughing at those who are killing each other over a video they haven't seen.
"UNGA always provides an opportunity for the President to put the international situation in context, and to put forward a vision of US leadership. I would certainly expect the President to address the recent unrest in the Muslim world, and the broader context of the democratic transitions in the Arab World."
"As he has in recent days, the President will make it clear that we reject the views in this video, while also underscoring that violence is never acceptable – a message that has been echoed by the leaders he has personally reached out to in places like Libya, Egypt and Yemen. He will also send a clear message that the United States will never retreat from the world; will bring justice to those who harm Americans; and will stand strongly for our democratic values abroad.
Most importantly, I am mourning the loss of four Americans murdered at the Benghazi Consulate. You are doing them a disservice, especially the former SEALs who fought for our rights! Shame on you Obama!

Jake Tapper: President Obama Falsely Claims Fast and Furious Program “Begun Under the Previous Administration”..
Jake Tapper went where no others at Politico dare to go, fact checking Obama:
Asked about the Fast and Furious program at the Univision forum on Thursday, President Obama falsely claimed that the program began under President George W. Bush.I suppose Tapper answered Rep Issa's question:
“I think it’s important for us to understand that the Fast and Furious program was a field-initiated program begun under the previous administration,” the president said. “When Eric Holder found out about it, he discontinued it. We assigned a inspector general to do a thorough report that was just issued, confirming that in fact Eric Holder did not know about this, that he took prompt action and the people who did initiate this were held accountable.”
In actuality, the Fast and Furious program was started in October 2009, nine months into the Obama presidency.
Previous programs involving ATF agents allowing guns to “walk” across the border so as to trace them were run during the Bush presidency, but not this particular “field-initiated program.”
White House officials did not respond to a request for comment after the falsehood was pointed out to them.[More...]
"Love the Prophet Day" Celebrated by Killing 15 (Death Toll Rising)
I guess this is the Islamic version of Christmas. Personally, I always look forward to December when I can celebrate Jesus' birth and life by going out and killing a bunch of people who I think disrespected Him.
PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) — Protests over an anti-Muslim film turned violent Friday across Pakistan, with police firing tear gas and live ammunition at thousands of demonstrators who threw rocks and set fire to buildings. At least 15 people were killed and dozens were injured.
Muslims also marched in at least a half-dozen other countries, with some burning American flags and effigies of U.S. President Barack Obama. [...]
The Pakistani government declared Friday to be a national holiday — "Love for the Prophet Day" — and encouraged peaceful protests.

Qatanani said he thinks agitators who slander Islam, or, more specifically, the Prophet Muhammad, incite violence and hence, pose a national security risk that threatens the safety of Americans at home and abroad.

Here are two quotes that I will never forget.Amen ma'am."It is easy to write a book about being a Navy SEAL, but it is very hard to write an obituary for one."

Convicted Terror Supporter: Help, I'm Being Oppressed!
Zach Chesser protesting at the White House
The latest letter from Zach Chesser. I think it's titled, Come and see the violence inherent in the system!
My name is Abu Talhah Zakariyya al-Amriiki (legally “Zachary Chesser) I am a Muslim prisoner in America, who has been arrested in the War on Islaam, the American Inquisition.Yes, a "war on Islam". That explains the President of the United States condemning words which disparage that particular religion. A war.
Yesterday, during the Maghrib prayer, a number of inmates and I were praying together. One of the guards came in upon us, and when we were finished he took down our names. He then went to write us all incident reports as a retaliation over the protests on behalf of the Prophet, sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam.Wow, an incident report. The horror!!!
There is a reason this particular prison doesn't let the inmates pray together. They also don't let them hold their own religious services. It's because all of the Muslim inmates at "Gitmo North" are convicted terror supporters.
When they speak of Islam, they mean the branch of Sunni Islam that supports terror. So if the prison is suppressing that? Well, I'm all for it.
Austin, Texas: Deers For Romney
[American Thinker]Texas may be a red state but the capital of Austin is Obama country. It's thus not unusual to see myriad Obama campaign signs in nice neighborhoods -- displayed on one manicured front lawn after another.Word is, the Republican Party of Texas has a deer whisperer on their staff.
How, then, to account in a pro-Obama neighborhood for a shocking act of vandalism occurring on the front lawn of Tom and Beth Priem -- their Obama sign destroyed, torn to shreds. They put a new sign up, and it happened again. Four times in all.
Was it the act of a violent and deranged Romney supporter? The Priems wanted to know. As reporter Pamela Cosel explained on the website of KXAN, a local television news channel:

French Mag Pictures Mohammad's Junk (Update: It Begins ...)(Update: Video Added)
Wow, and you thought simply showing an image of the "Prophet" Mohammad was going to get people killed?
I think I'm upping my ante to, say, 100 +/- 5 killed. And as many of you noted, this is France, so we'll throw in a couple of dozen cars for good measure.
These pictures actually are offensive. Which is why I'm showing them.
Maybe it's me, but isn't it weird that Muhammad's b-hole is censored but not his .... frank and beans?
Also, I don't speak French, but are the two naked images of Mohammad or of a Muslim invoking Muhammad's name? I can't really tell.
But to be on the safe side I'm going to say they're both Mohammad.
The safe side in this case being the side of freedom and liberty vs. the forces of darkness and repression.
And it is possible for a Muslim to be both offended by these images and still lend their voice to the forces of liberty by standing up for the right of people to mock their religion.
Hat tip: Zip
UPDATE: So, how do you get back at a French magazine for publishing naked images of Mohammad?
A small package bomb exploded inside a kosher grocery store in a Paris suburb Wednesday, wounding at least one person, according to an agency that tracks anti-Semitic attacks in France.Bomb Jews, of course. Every knows the Jews are the real power behind everything.
This also brings up an interesting point for the dead pool. So far we have people murdered in the name of defending Muhammad's honor category and French cars destroyed in the name of defending Islam category, but we forgot the people injured or mamed in the name of Islam category.
Sorry about that. We'll do better in the future.

"The West throughout history has not treated Islam with respect, but showed hostility [against it], and chose the path of conflict, rather than understanding," said Al-Tayyeb in a statement responding to a French newspaper's publication of cartoons insulting the Prophet Mohamed.
He said that Christianity in the west was affected by the Roman ideas which caused Christianity there to be impacted by the pagan ideas of the Romans.
He stressed that Islam has protected Eastern Christian [Orthodox] from prosecution by the West[say what???..ed], and moderate Copts admit this.

Which is funny if you think about it.

See Tony Rezko is good for something. But I digress, do these people really think Obama is going to forgive the same debts he actually paid back.
So if we "got rid of student loans" doesn't that mean these folks get no money. I'm not disinterested, The Xers paid ours back, no small feat. These kids need to man up and write off their 20s like the rest of us.
Accidental Donkey Love

Muslim Rage & The Last Gasp of Islamic Hate
Ayaan Hirsi Ali writes why she thinks the current uprisings in the Islamic world may be marking the end of Islamism:
How often have I endured bizarre conversations with government officials who cling to the illusion that the threat is temporary or that it can be negotiated. And then there are the even more delusional positions staked out by some prominent intellectuals who blame the writer, the politician, the filmmaker, or the cartoonist for provoking the threat. In the days after van Gogh was murdered, too many prominent Dutch individuals expressed precisely this position, declaring smugly, “Yes, of course killing is wrong, but Theo was a provocateur ...” Will they never cease looking for ever more ingenious ways of apologizing for free speech?
As the latest wave of indignation sweeps across the Muslim world, we should not be despondent. Yes, this is a setback for the Arab Spring. Yes, it is bloody, dangerous, and chaotic on the streets. Yes, innocent people are dying and their governments are powerless. But this too shall pass.
The article is a very optimistic view for everyone who supports free speech. Read it all.
It was supposed to provoke a discussion of why Muslims are so angry in the wake of the release of a film trailer critical of the Prophet Muhammad.
Instead, the hashtag became a way for many to critique Newsweek.
Silence! I Kill You!! (Literally)
Repeat this three times and you're in the club: There is no God but Allah, and Jeff Dunham is his prophet.

Obama on Civil Rights Movement: Not Focused Enough On Redistribution of Wealth
To be honest, this is the kind of stuff I heard all the time by my grad school professors. And since I took more than my fair share of grad level classes on Constitutional law, it became the the kind of thing I could look forward to nearly every single class session. In other words, this is mainstream thinking within academia.
But you know what? My professors were nearly universally left wing radicals. They just didn't know they were radicals because every one around them was also a radical.
It's a universe where anything right of Karl Marx is considered middle of the road.
Which is why I actually believe that Barack Obama doesn't consider himself a left winger. He fit in perfectly in academia. Even more perfectly in the world of "community organizers". And now he surrounds himself with sycophants and like minded people.
Check it out.
More People Vote than Work
And now we see the wisdom in a property requirement for voting:
In November 2008, the Americans who turned out to vote in the presidential election outnumbered the Americans who turned out to work full-time by more than 14 million.Now, I get it that a lot of those 14 million are retirees. And a lot of others are full-time stay at home moms. I get that.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, approximately 118,423,000 Americans worked full-time in November 2008. According to the University of California at Santa Barbara's American Presidency Project, 132,645,504 people turned out to vote in that month's presidential election.
The presidential election voters outnumbered the full-time workers by 14,222,504.
My wife left the work force for about 15 years to stay at home with our children and just opened her own business a couple of months ago.
Not every one who votes but doesn't work should be working.
But you know what? Some of those who vote but don't work should be working. They are on some sort of government assistance. Some are on welfare, others on disability when they shouldn't be, on unemployed because they think they are too good to take a job that's "beneath them", etc.
And since there are less people working today than in 2008, that means we are on track for even more non-workers involved in this election than last time.
One can only hope a good number of them will blame Obama for their inability to get a job rather than look to him for help and salvation from the mean capitalists who are only out for profit.

The "How many people will be murdered over French Mohammad cartoon?" betting pool
UPDATE 9/19/2012: The cover image below isn't half as offensive as the ones inside the magazine which show Muhammad naked. I've put the images of naked Mohammad here.
The French magazine Charlie Hedbo is planning on releasing another cartoon depicting the so-called "prophet" Muhammad.
Here's the image that is so "offensive". I mean, that's worth rioting over, right?
Before the paper even hit the streets the purveyors of perpetual outrage were lining up their minions to try and suppress free speech:
Even before news of Charlie Hebdo's plans emerged, France's large Muslim community was being urged to take to the streets in defiance of an official ban on demonstrations over the controversial film.So, let's start a dead pool here. I know it's in bad taste, but I'm in no mood to give these religious fascists even an inch.
Messages on Twitter and social networking sites called for demonstrations to be held Saturday in Paris, Marseille and other major cities, a week after police in the capital arrested 150 people for taking part in a rowdy protest near the US embassy.
Most messages read "Don't touch my Prophet", a variation of the French anti-racism slogan "Don't Touch my Mate" popular in the 1980s
I'm going with 20 +/- 3 murdered in the name of defending Muhammad's so-called "honor".
Sec. State Condemns Book of Mormon Desecration, Blasphemy Against the Prophet Joseph Smith
Wait, did I say Sec. State Hilary Clinton condemned making fun of Mormons?
'Hasa Diga Eebowai" is the hit number in Broadway's hit musical "The Book of Mormon," which won nine Tony awards last year. What does the phrase mean? I can't tell you, because it's unprintable in a family newspaper.I can, it means "F*ck you God!". Now imagine if the lyrics in the song had said, "F*ck you Allah!" what our government, under the current regime, would have said. There's more:
On the other hand, if you can afford to shell out several hundred bucks for a seat, then you can watch a Mormon missionary get his holy book stuffed—well, I can't tell you about that, either. Let's just say it has New York City audiences roaring with laughter.Also, I can tell you. His Book of Mormon get's stuffed up his ass.
Now, can you imagine if the book had been the Quran?
Quran desecrated in Broadway play!
Riots surely would have ensued, and our dear leaders would have condemned the play. Possibly, Trey Parker and Matt Stone would have been pulled from their homes in the middle of the night to answer completely "unrelated" charges.
The analogy is so perfect, that I've been making it for some time now. So perfect, in fact, that Hilary Clinton, who went out of her way to condemn a stupid YouTube video about Islam she hasn't seen has been silent about a stupid play about Mormonism which she has seen. This part, I didn't know:
The "Book of Mormon"—a performance of which Hillary Clinton attended last year, without registering a complaint—comes to mind as the administration falls over itself denouncing "Innocence of Muslims.I'd actually like to see the play. I hear it's funny. Even Mormons think it's funny (or some of them). But isn't the hypocrisy here just mind blowingly obvious? Yet liberals don't see it.
They praise anti-Mormonism. We know they do this because The Book of Mormon took home a bunch of awards, including best musical.
Yet anything you say about Islam is somehow beyond the pale. Outside reasonable discourse. Utterly despicable.
Stephens, in the article quoted above, seems to suggest that liberals do this because they are afraid of Muslims:
So let's get this straight: In the consensus view of modern American liberalism, it is hilarious to mock Mormons and Mormonism but outrageous to mock Muslims and Islam. Why? Maybe it's because nobody has ever been harmed, much less killed, making fun of Mormons....I think that might be partially explanatory. On Colbert last night he had a great line about not wanting to offend Muslims by showing a clip from the video because he didn't want to die.
The People's Front for the Liberation of Provo will not be gunning for a theater near you
But I think that for hard core liberals, lefties, and progressives that there is something more fundamental about their world view going on here. Namely, that lefties see good and bad in terms of have and have nots. Minorities without political power are good, and those with it are bad.
So, Mormons, like Jews, are the epitome of a religious minority that has succeeded despite prejudice. It's okay to make fun of Mormons.
Muslims, however, are seen as the victims of neocolonialism. American wars of aggression. At home Muslims are "victims" of a hostile and Islamophobic society.
"Victims" = "good".
When was the last time you heard any one -- any one -- in the mainstream press use the word Mormonophobia or Mormonophobe? Does the word even exist?
More telling about this double standard are the way Joseph Smith, the Mormon founding prophet, and Muhammad, Islam's founding prophet, are referred to. It's "the Prophet Muhammad", as if it was a matter of indisputable fact that Muhammad was a prophet. But when was the last time you heard someone in the MSM, Democratic party leadership, or in the Obama administration refer to "the Prophet Joseph Smith"?
Hell, I even find myself sometimes referring to Muhammad as "the Prophet Muhammad". Not because I think he is, not because I like the guy, but because you tend to repeat what you hear and nearly every one in power uses the phrase.
Do not mistake any of this for an endorsement of anti-Muslim attitudes. I am not anti-Muslim. I'm not even anti-Islam. There are a lot of Muslims who hate Islamists -- those who aspire to religious control of the state -- just as much as I do, or more.
I do believe there is such a thing as an irrational Islamophobia, just as I believe there is such a thing as an irrational fear of Mormons.
I believe both are very rare. Rare enough that a guy with a Muslim father and a middle name of "Hussein" was elected President. And rare enough that the most powerful man in the Senate and the next President of the United States are Mormon.
But cowtowing to Muslims who demand we respect their notions of blasphemy simply because they are endowed by the liberal elite with victim status crosses a line. It more than crosses a line, it betrays the very Constitution which our elected and appointed officers are sworn to uphold.
Hilary Clinton and her ilk in the elite media deserve nothing but contempt.
I take that back. She does deserve more. She deserves impeachment.
Egypt: Death Penalty for Americans Who Blaspheme Mohammad! (And why the time for disengagement is now)
What was the Obama administration saying about the Muslim Brotherhood being 'moderates' again?
Egypt's general prosecutor issued arrest warrants Tuesday for seven Egyptian Coptic Christians and a Florida-based American pastor and referred them to trial on charges linked to an anti-Islam film that has sparked riots across the Muslim world....The time has come for us to leave Muslim countries to their own devices. If they wish to civilize, I wish them all the best.
The prosecutor's office said in a statement that the accused, which includes the film's alleged producer, face charges of harming national unity, insulting and publicly attacking Islam and spreading false information. The office said they could face the death penalty, if convicted.
We tried supporting dictators and that didn't work. We tried supporting democracy, that didn't work. We tried nation building, and that didn't work.
Homer Simpson summed it up precisely. We tried our best and failed miserably. The lesson is: never try.
Not caring about what happens in the Muslim world is a cathartic and liberating experience. You should try it.
If a country can't protect our embassy, the answer is to close the embassy. If a country takes $1 billion of our dollars, and then returns the favor by indicting our citizens for religious "crimes", then stop giving them money.
If the Muslim world wishes to join the 21st century, I wish them all the luck in the world.
But if they don't? It's not my problem. I just don't care anymore.
I don't care about nation building in Afghanistan anymore. I don't care about the Muslim Brotherhood being in power in Egypt anymore. Let al Qaeda take over Tunisia. I. Just. Don't. Care.
Our foreign policy towards the Muslim world should simply be this: leave us the f*ck alone, if you don't we will utterly annihilate you. We will not invade. We will not depose. We will not nation build. We will destroy.
And if after being destroyed you choose to f*ck with us again, we will destroy you again. Until either you stop f*cking with us or you are all dead.
The nuclear option is on the table.
We will put no more American lives at risk to give you freedom. American freedom was won by American blood. Afghan freedom will be won by Afghan blood. Iraqi freedom will be won by Iraqi blood. Etc.
I've had it. I'm checking out. It's not my problem anymore. Call me when you've matured. I'm moving on.
So long Muslim world, and thanks for all the fish!
Mitt Romney Tells the Truth, Media Recoils in Horror
If I understand the latest Mitt Romney "gaffe" he said: 1)
Palestinians have “no interest whatsoever in establishing peace, and that the pathway to peace is almost unthinkable to accomplish.”and 2):
There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what…These are people who pay no income tax.I was going to respond to each of these alleged "gaffes" one by one, but then I got to thinking what gaffes?
Both statements are true and self evident. So, go Mitt!
Every one knows the Palestinians don't want peace. Duh.
Oh, sure, they want "peace" .... if by peace you mean the "one state solution" which is just a sophisticated way of saying the utter destruction of a Jewish state in the Middle East.
There are two types of people who think Mitt got this wrong:
1) Those in utter denial of reality
There is a third camp here that is angry over Mitt's statement. This camp doesn't think Mitt got it wrong, which is why I didn't include them in the above. Instead, this group thinks Mitt is exactly right, but think that it is not in America's best interest to say this out loud.
Personally, I'm not in that camp. I don't mind our future President being honest about the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. Lying to ourselves about the Palestinians has gotten us nowhere. We tried that strategy for the past 20 years, and it has failed. When a strategy fails, it's time to change it and try something else.
Let's give the truth a chance.
As to the second point, Mitt is right on again. Great going. More please!
Obama's electoral strategy has always been to divide Americans into discreet interests with each interest being dependent on government largess.
Obama goes after the farm vote by promising farmers more subsidies. He goes after blue collar workers by (finally) taking on China's manufacturing subsidies and currency manipulation. He goes after the poor by expanding WIC, welfare, and medicare. He goes after the lower middle class by extending tax breaks that only apply to them.
Any one who thinks that Obama's strategy isn't exactly how Mitt described it is in utter denial of the truth.
Which is why the media thinks this is a big deal. It isn't.
They only think it's a big deal because they are Obama partisans and liberals who think that votes ought to be bought by government largess.
The real scandal here is the media coverage. I get that Mother Jones thinks this is a scandal. Mother Jones is so far to the Left that they think Barack Obama is a mainstream conservative.
But for CNN or any other network of publication to claim non-partisanship to think this is a big deal? Sometimes the partisanship is subtle, but this time not so much.

Fox News Asks al Qaeda Leader's Bro: 'How Can You Call For a Protest About a Movie You Haven't Seen?'..
Zawahiri claims the title of the movie was the motivator for the protests? Huh? The protests were planned on the anniversary of 9/11 to demand for the release of the Blind Shiekh,, currently in a US prison for his role in the first World Trade Center attack. The video was just "window dressing".
I suppose MaZ also didn't want to discuss his re-issuing of bin Laden's 2004 "hudna" either. That wouldn't fit him using the "SCOAMF narrative". Obama, the SCOAMF, built this.
UPDATE by Rusty: I think the real value in the interview is Zawahiri confirms that under sharia the penalty for blasphemy is death.
Robert Davi Gets It
Call him an 'Islamophobe'? Robert Davi calls out Hollywood on Free Speech:
Was there an outcry when Christian churches were burned or blown up in the countries that do not tolerate other religions? How many of you have seen the beheading on camera of a young Arab convert to Christianity because he was considered an infidel? Yes, I saw his head cut off with a dull knife while blood spurt from his neck! There would have been more of an outcry from Hollywood if it was the slaughter of a seal!
What about the filmmaker who was killed in Holland for his film dealing with the treatment of woman in certain countries? So, while certain things are not politically correct to take on, it appears that others are fair game - like attacks on Scientology or Christianity or any other religion except of course, the most intolerant of all.
On the other side of the political spectrum, Randy Newman writes a new song aimed at 'racist' Republicans, "I'm Dreaming Of A White President."
Personally, I'm dreaming of a President who is actually proud of America as our Founding Fathers meant it to be.

CBS: The strategy for getting U.S. forces out of Afghanistan depends on training Afghan soldiers and police to protect the country themselves, but on Monday the U.S. military suspended most joint field operations with Afghan forces because so many Americans are being killed by the men they are training.President SCOAMF is really doing a bang up job in Afghanistan.
Libya Claims it Gave Three Days Warning to US
American diplomats were warned of possible violent unrest in Benghazi three days before the killings of US Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three members of his team, Libyan security officials say.There were other signs that tensions were elevated in the days and weeks prior which are clear in hindsight.
The claim came as the country's interim President, Mohammed el-Megarif, said his government had information that the attack on the US consulate had been planned by an Islamist group with links to al-Qa'ida and with foreigners taking part.
...The Independent has reported diplomatic sources who said that the threat of an attack against US interests in the region was known to the US administration 48 hours before it took place. The alert was issued by the State Department's Bureau of Diplomatic Security, but not made public. A State Department spokesman maintained: "We are not aware of any actionable intelligence indicating that an attack on the US Mission in Benghazi was planned or imminent."
Keep on your toes folks.

Free Syrian Army Executes Prisoners Then Blames Assad's Army For 'Civilian' Massacre
The Obama Administration has authorized support for the Free Syrian Army. But this video shows some of the atrocities being committed by these so-called "freedom fighters."
Description from the video:
Free syrian army kidnapped some civilians (supporters of alassad regime , we see some kids in the video too), Execute them in a brutal way. Then they made another video, claiming that these people are killed by the official syrian army (army that still loyal to alassad), the camera man was saying, oh arabs, oh muslims , look how alassad is killing us !!!!! allah akbar,,,,,
(WARNING: NSFW - Video shows the graphic aftermath of massacre)
Remember, kids, Islam is the religion of peace!

Putin: Hey, Let's Release Pussy Riot
Presumably, this was all in Putin's master plan for a four-way. It's like a three-way, but someone has to hold the camera!
Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on Wednesday called for three members of the punk band Pussy Riot to be freed, a sign that the women's release could be imminent since their case comes up for appeal on Oct. 1.In all seriousness, though, this is very much in line in repressive dictatorships. We see it all the time in Iran and similar countries. The play book goes something like this.
1) Police arrest subversive elements.
2) Court convicts subversive elements.
3) Dictator overturns court showing world that he's really a good guy.
The problem here, though, isn't the process. It looks like the process will eventually free the trio. No, the problem here is substantive. Can a nation truly be free when the substance of the law makes basic political and religious expression illegal?
I don't think so. No matter how many activists Putin releases and no matter how many Christians sentenced to death the Mullahs overturn, the fact remains that those countries have laws on the books which deny fundamental human freedoms.

Muslim Youths In Nigeria Crucify A Cat On The Cross To Protest Anti-Islam Film
I'll tell you one time, you're to blame.
Hat Tip: Pam.
Full Movie: The Innocence of Muslims [UPDATE: Not Full Movie]
So far we've only seen the rather pathetic trailer for the movie that is allegedly causing "outrage" in the Muslim world. Here's the entire movie.
Why post it? For the same reason that I carry a gun: Because I can.
Oddly, the video begins with some poorly edited al Qaeda propaganda videos. And I think the intro at the beginning about the poster being a Christian from Iraq is just something added on by the guy posting the video, not the ones who made it. But, that's just a guess.
Actually, I haven't watched it. I began to, and then started skipping around. I just don't have the time to watch something so poorly executed. It's embarrassing in that I'm embarrassed for the producer kind of a way.
It's flinchingly bad. I think the world would be served if it was viewed MST 3000 style.
However, I do have both the time and inclination to watch the Muslim world implode over something as stupid as this. Sometimes the best course of action is the one that reveals just who the enemies of freedom are.
Let it be noted that the apocalypse didn't start with the return of a messiah, the assassination of an Archduke, or with the accidental release of a government engineered virus.
It began with a movie. A pathetic movie.
If this is how future history records this moment, then civilization as we know it deserves an end.
UPDATE: Misplaced boldly went where I was too bored to go and watched the thing a little more in depth. Apparently it's just the same 15 minutes of footage found in the "trailer" looped over and over again.
So instead of wasting 90 minutes of your time it just wastes 15 minutes.
Anonymous Geniuses: Revolution Muslim Group Obviously a Cop Conspiracy to Make Muslims Look Bad
Also making Muslims look bad? Muslims.
But I digress. This is what happens when you see the world through the lenses of grand conspiracy lenses. Every bad thing in the world becomes part of the grand conspiracy. In this case, that extremists in the US are really government agents:
A prime candidate for such a "pseudo movement groups run by government agents" in NYPD jurisdiction must surely be Youssef al-Khattab's (Joseph Cohen's) Revolution Muslim. Cohen/al-Khattab, a former Orthodox Jew, and friends - themselves Muslim converts - could always be relied upon to make Muslims look as dangerous as possible at opportune moments. Despite having no mandate to speak for Muslims or any grassroots support whatsover Revolution Muslim were mysteriously given a platform to vent their views to a national audience on numerous occasions through the mainstream news channels.
Revolution Muslim members had been banned from their local Mosques and Muslim groups were skeptical of the group from the beginning.The vast majority of Muslim Americans despise Revolution Muslim and their hate-filled ideology. The New York mosque the group frequented banned them from setting foot inside the premises, forcing them to preach on the street corner. Many Muslim Americans question whether Revolution Muslim are real Muslims, and instead hold them to be agent provocateurs who wish to smear Islam. Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), said Revolution Muslim is “an extreme fringe group that has absolutely no credibility within the Muslim community” and that the “wild and irresponsible things” they say has led to “a strong suspicion [in the Muslim American community] that they’re merely a setup to make Muslims and Islam look bad. ”
The grand irony here? The image of Yousef in the original post was stolen from our server. Old school Jawa fans will remember that we wrote many a post claiming Yousef was an FBI informant. Mostly just to mess with Yousef.
Iran: UN Treaty Means we Can Sue Obama for Blasphemy
Like this would ever happen .... :
A senior Iranian official says US President Barack Obama could face legal action in connection with the production of an anti-Islam movie by an American Jew.Why am I suddenly thinking of that great exchange between Dan Ackroyd and Woody Allen from The Curse of the Jade Dragon?
“A complaint could be filed with US courts against Obama for his violation of articles 18 and 27 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) calling for respect of faiths,” Javad Mohammadi, the deputy head of the Supreme Council of Cultural Revolution (SCCR), said on Sunday.
“Article 18 and 27 of the ICCPR, adopted by the United Nation, stipulate that the religion and the rights of the minorities should be respected,” Mohammadi said.
"There's a word for people who think that everyone is conspiring against them."Also, I don't think this is actually related. If you bother to watch the video, the lawyer doesn't actually refuse to answer the question. He just keeps getting cut off by Congressman Franz who engages in gotcha questioning. The lawyer was trying to get out that staff doesn't comment on hypothetical legislation.
"That's right — perceptive."
So, this is far from some smoking gun about the Obama DOJ's real intentions.
Ministry of Irony: Muslim Protester Dies of Smoke Inhalation After Burning US Flag
One of the participants of the rally, Abdullah Ismail, passed away after he was taken to Mayo Hospital. Witnesses said he had complained of feeling unwell from the smoke from US flags burnt at the rally.
Cringe and propitiate: that's the Obama administration's response to the hucksters who have seized on a dopey YouTube trailer to enflame crowds across the Islamic world.Read the rest.
Blaming the video is convenient for the Obama administration. Blaming the video obviates questions about inadequate security at the Benghazi consulate. Even better, from the administration's point of view, the more we talk about the video, the less we talk about whether the administration made the right choices in its Libyan and Egyptian policies.

Islamists have destroyed the tomb of a Muslim saint in a northern Mali region under their control, two months after similar incidents in the region brought widespread condemnation, sources said Monday.I'll email Secretary Clinton to see if I can get a statement as to why this is all Amerikkkas fault.
"The Islamists on Saturday destroyed the mausoleum of Cheik El-Kebir, 330 kilometres from Gao," a local politician told AFP on condition of anonymity. "Twelve of them arrived at the site. They demolished the mausoleum with hammers, picks."
The sources said the Islamist militant Movement for Oneness and Jihad in West Africa (MUJAO) was responsible for the destruction.
Fatwa? Hezbollah Leader Calls For Week Of Deeply Uncivilized Rage Against Mohammed Video
Nasrallah out did himself by calling the movie "the worst attack ever on Islam".
...Nasrallah told followers to stagger their protests around the country. He called for protests in southern Beirut on Monday, in the southern city of Tyre on Wednesday, in the eastern city of Baalbek on Friday, in Bint Jbeil in south Lebanon on Saturday, and in Hermel in the eastern Bekaa valley region on Sunday. All are majority Shia areas.Dear Nasrallah, is this what you mean by drawing stuff?
He also called for people across the Islamic world to demonstrate against the film, which he described as "the worst attack ever on Islam, worse than the Satanic Verses by Salman Rushdie, the burning of the Quran in Afghanistan and the cartoons in the European media".
"There should be resolutions adopted in top international institutions, that are binding on all states and governments in the world, to forbid the defamation of religions," said Nasrallah, adding attacks on Muslims were "frequent".
"Those who write or draw or make such a film would know that they would be punished wherever they are, and they would not feel protected," the Hezbollah chief said.
He also blamed the United States for the film.
Howie wants one first, though.
Happy Constitution Day?
Make no mistake about it, our individual freedoms[h/t BSCANS] are under attack when a stupid film about Mohammed can get one arrested.
Sandcrawler PSA: Satirical Stereotypes of Jews Good
Satirical Stereotypes of Muslims/Islam Bad
This Satirical rap video by JuiceNews http://www.youtube.com/user/thejuicemedia called Big Brother is WWWatching You (feat. George Orwell) is called Political Satire, Because the Juice control everything. Juice = Jews.... Ha ha.
But whatever you do don't point out that the blank for the father's name on Muhammad's birth certificate reads "unknown". Or else you'll find yourself in trouble with Sandra Fluke!
Fatwa This: Salmon Rushdie Protests Deeply Uncivilized
And also on Morning Edition, author Salman Rushdie — who for more than two decades has been a marked man because Iranian leader Ayatollah Khomeini declared that his book The Satanic Verses was "against Islam" and that Rushdie was therefore "sentenced to death" — shared his view about the people responsible for such violence.If you listen to the whole interview, Rushdie at the end plays lip service to condemning the video behind all this. You can get the quote here.
It is the "mindset of the fanatic, mindset of the tyrant" to respond to an insult to one's religion with violence, Rushdie told host Steve Inskeep. "To murder people who had nothing to do with it," he added, is a "deeply uncivilized attitude."
"Something has gone wrong inside the Muslim world," Rushdie continued. Just a few decades ago, he said, major cities in the Arab and Muslim world were outward-looking. But "in the last half century, these cultures seem to have slid backwards into medievalism and represssion. ... It is one of the great self-inflicted wounds."
That is if the video is really what's behind this, rather than a bone tossed to the media. But since its OK to criticize the satirical film clip I might as well join the crowd.
The production value was crappy and it was basically a cheap assed knockoff of the Life of Brian. But it did have a few good jokes in it. I mean the ones where they tease Muhammad about being a little bastard were pretty funny. At least I thought so.
Video: Ambassador Stevens Being Dragged from Building
I've just finished reviewing this video that claims to be of the removal of Ambassador Stevens. The uploaded claims he is alive at this point, but its impossible to tell. One thing is clear there are many more of these pictures and videos circulating most likely on cell phone networks in Libya and elsewhere.
The Arabic title and descriptions with the video translate as.
U.S. Ambassador Maholt people of Benghazi saved before his deathUh yeah they are saving him. Which might be true, the middle east is famous for how they grab wounded people and finish them off saving them. But usually they take off dragging the saved person. These folks don't seem to be in any big hurry to me. I mean they seem more interesting in Praising Allah that they have the Ambassador and that he's 99% dead. But I'm sure secretary Clinton can explain that, no?
Moment directed the U.S. ambassador before his death.
Update: Like I said there will be many of these, Brietbart has another here. This video is much more clear.
Update:Two separate translators looking at this say the dialogue in the video as described in the NYT's is essentially accurate.
“I swear, he’s dead,” one Libyan says, peering in.Our sources say there is no indication that the crowd bore ill will towards the Ambassador and they did later take him to the hospital, although the video does not show a complete timeline.
“Bring him out, man! Bring him out,” another says.
“The man is alive. Move out of the way,” others shout. “Just bring him out, man.”
“Move, move, he is still alive!”
“Alive, Alive! God is great,” the crowd erupts, while someone calls to bring Mr. Stevens to a car.
Mr. Stevens was taken to a hospital, where a doctor tried to revive him, but said he was all but dead on arrival.

Muhammed Al-Zawahiri, Brother of Al Qaeda Leader, Proposes '10-Year Hudna' To The West
In March of this year, an Egyptian military court found Muhammed Zawahiri not guilty of all charges relating to the murder of Anwar Sadat. Yeah, Arab Spring!!
I guess when MaZ isn't busy leading protests in Cairo, he takes time to tell us to submit to Islam or something.
On September 15, 2012, the Saudi daily Al-Shuroukh published a document authored by Muhammad Al-Zawahiri, the brother of Al-Qaeda leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri, proposing a 10-year hudna to the U.S. the West. The document's publication followed Al-Zawahiri's presentation of the main points of the initiative in interviews with Western media.Bro of Zawahiri, you can shove that "hudna" up your arse. May you and your brother meet the same fate as bin-Laden, bitch.
In the preface to the document, Al-Zawahiri put himself forward as mediator, and explains the need for the initiative, and the reasoning behind it. He presented himself as a member of what he referred to generally as "the Islamic movement," and noted that the initiative aims to serve the interests of the movement and of the Muslims. Addressing the West, which he called "the Muslims' Enemy No. 1," he warns that the Muslims' war against it will only escalate, and that what has happened so far is only the beginning. In this way, he seeks to persuade the West that it is best for it to agree to a ceasefire now.
Al-Zawahiri then proceeded to lay out the main points of his hudna proposal, under which the Islamic movement will undertake not to attack the U.S. or the West in exchange for an end to Western interference in the affairs of the Islamic countries and Western agreement to the establishment of an Islamic state ruled by shari'a law in every country in which the majority of Muslims have expressed widespread support for it
In a September 12, 2012 interview with the Egyptian daily Al-Watan, Al-Zawahiri stressed that he had no connection to his brother, and that he had not shown him the text of the initiative[bullshit..ed]. He said that Osama bin Laden had proposed the same hudna in 2004, and that he was proposing it again now, on the anniversary of 9/11, in order to expose to the American people that its government was misleading it and was continuing the "war on terror" with the sole aim of protecting the interests of businessmen profiting from this false war. Also in the interview, Al-Zawahiri demanded that the U.S. end its occupation of the Muslim lands and its interference in their school curricula, and that it release the jihadis held its prisons. In return, he said, the jihadis will stop attacking U.S. interests in the region – but only if such an agreement is signed between representatives of the U.S. and Al-Qaeda.
Tell me again, Obama/Hillary/MFM, the stupid Mohammed video sparked the protests.

But Iran is guided by a leadership with an unbelievable fanaticism. It’s the same fanaticism that you see swarming your embassies…You want these fanatics to have nuclear weapons?Gregory then went on Twitter to apologize for his "use of words". Note how he used Jew/Jewish in "lower case jew/jewish":

He apologized for offending whomever only to offend again.
“I mean I heard some people suggest, David– I actually read this in the American press– they said, ‘Well, you know, if you take action, that’s a lot worse than having Iran with nuclear weapons.’ Some have even said that Iran with nuclear weapons would stabilize the Middle East…I think the people who say this have set a new standard for human stupidity.”Cue the lower case "jew/jewish" in Gregory's "non-apology".

Feds: US teen held n 'jihad' terrorist bomb attempt at Chicago bar[h/t The Sanity Inspector]
Adel Daoud, 18, of Hillside, was arrested Friday night when he tried to blow up what he thought was a car bomb in front of a downtown bar after undercover federal agents supplied him with a Jeep fitted with fake explosives, prosecutors announced today.Dan Riehl has some background on on this Occupy and Obama supporter
Daoud was charged today with trying to use a weapon of mass destruction and trying to destroy a building using explosives. Daoud had come to the FBI’s attention this spring after he posted something online, and after an FBI undercover agent contacted him, he “expressed an interest in engaging in violent jihad, either in the United States or overseas,” according to a news release from the U.S. attorney’s office.[More...]

US official: Nuclear bomb is our red line
How long before this is walked back....shelf life not even a day.
US President Barack Obama rejected an appeal by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to define a specific “red line” that Iran could not cross in its nuclear program, The New York Times reported Friday, citing an unnamed senior administration official.
According to the report, in an hour-long conversation on Tuesday Obama deflected Netanyahu’s proposal to make the size of Iran’s stockpile of close-to-bomb-grade uranium the threshold, that, if passed, would trigger a US military strike on the Islamic Republic's nuclear facilities.
While Obama reiterated the assurance that the US won't allow Iran to manufacture a atomic bomb, he was unwilling to agree on any specific action by the Islamic Republic – like reaching a defined threshold on nuclear material, or failing to adhere to a deadline on negotiations – that would lead to military action by the US.
“We need some ability for the president to have decision-making room,” said the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. “We have a red line, which is a nuclear weapon. We’re committed to that red line.”
Do these people realize they have just told the Iranians to launch as soon as they build a bomb...

Thoughts on the Clash of Civilizations
I'm often told by liberals that it is dangerous to believe that there is any merit in Samuel Huntington's Clash of Civilizations thesis.
For some odd reason they are under the impression that it is people in the West who have to be warned not to heed Huntington's theory. But what motivates them is not a belief that the theory is wrong, but that the theory is dangerous. They labor under the impression that if people in the West believe what is an allegedly empirical theory of how things are that those people will somehow normatively adopt the theory as the way things ought to be.
A self fulfilling theory, they think, that will only come to pass if people believe in it.
I think after the last few days it has become clear who it is that these do-gooders ought to be spending their time convincing. Here's a hint: it's not residents of Mississippi who are storming the Saudi embassy.
The same do-gooders ought to take their self-righteous message on how Islam is basically the same thing as Tibetan Buddhism to the streets of Cairo and Islamabad. It's not that I don't like such propaganda which is beneficial to our interests, it's just that such propagandists ought to be directed towards the right target audience. That target audience is not in Alabama.
While there is no doubt that Islamophobia -- like racism or homophobia -- is a real but relatively rare thing, the last time I checked the Islamophobes weren't murdering my compatriots. Hell, Islamophobes aren't even murdering Muslims.
So, if there is a clash of civilizations I very much doubt that it will be we, in the West, who will or have started it. It will be a bunch of religious fanatics in the Middle East and Asia. None of whom are Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, or other.
I don't mind one bit when Hilary Clinton and President Obama tell us that Islam is a religion of peace and that it is against Islamic principles to murder people over words. So long as their target audience is the Muslim world, not America. It's not America that needs to be convinced of this, it's Muslims.
I am offended by Mrs. Clinton's words today at what should have been a somber occasion. Those assembled did not need to be told that Islam doesn't condone violence. Muslims need to be told this. Not me.
And certainly not at a memorial service dedicated to those murdered by these savages.
It's a lot like lecturing rape victims on why it is that rape is bad. Sure, that's true, but shouldn't those words be reserved for rapists who didn't get the memo?

Caroline Glick: US-commanded MFO in Sinai under attack -- dead reported in compound
Israel media - Channel 2 - just reported that the US-commanded Multi-National Force Observors headquarters in the Sinai is under assault. Salafists laid seige to the building this afternoon and some 50 armed men stormed it. There is fighting going on in the building and there are dead inside.Obama administration: Must.Not.Offend.Muslims.
The MFO is the force that was established under the Israel-Egypt peace treaty. It is charged with guaranteeing the demilitarization of the Sinai.

Liberals: Muslims Are Like Children. With Guns. [UPDATE: Obama Admin -- Muslims Can't be Trusted w/ Free Speech]
Muslims defame Pop, zero Catholic riots, zero liberal calls for censorship
On the way in to work today I was listening to the Diane Rehm show on NPR and the panelists were discussing the YouTube video masquerading as a "movie" over which Muslims around the globe are so outraged over. The taxpayer supported host kept asking why the video couldn't be outlawed and doesn't a video making fun of Mohammad constitute the "yelling fire in a crowded theater" exception to the First Amendment?
Yes, the discussion was that silly. And yes, your tax dollars hard at work.
We all know liberals are condescending. It's just who they are. They think they know how to run your life better than you. They went to college.
But rarely is this condescending philosophy so nakedly apparent than it is today as so many of them openly discuss why Muslims can't be treated like adults.
Americans must censor themselves, but only when it comes to certain groups. We can make fun of Christians. Not only can you make fun of Mormons, when you do we will praise you.
Broadway show defaming Mormons. Zero riots, zero calls for censorship, 14 Tony awards.
We can make fun of just about any one in the world. Personally, I like a good Pollack joke. And did you hear the one about the drunk Irishman who walked into a bar? Yeah, you know the punchline.
But certain groups, they say, do not qualify as fully capable human beings accountable for their own choices and responsible for their own actions.
Rather, your actions cause them to behave in certain ways.
Unlike adults, these people are not responsible for their behavior. You are responsible for their behavior.
They are like children. Parents are responsible for the behavior of children. And other adults need to watch what they say around children. You wouldn't want them finding out there is no Santa Clause.
Liberals believe Muslims are not responsible for their own actions. You are responsible for their actions.
So while they give lip service to the notion that Islam is a great religion on par with all other great religions, when they also claim that people must censor themselves around Muslims --- and only Muslims --- they are revealing what they really think of Muslims.
And I don't think this is a subtle point. The cognitive dissonance between giving multiple Tony awards for The Book of Mormon: The Musical and then condemning any and all criticism of Islam as somehow on par with Holocaust denial is so massive that it cannot escape even the most casual observer.
If I were a Muslim I'd be genuinely offended every time some liberal condescendingly put the blame on those speaking offensive words rather than those violently reacting to those words as if they had no self control. As if they were children.
Either Muslims are adults and accountable for their own actions or they are not. Liberals believe they are not and calls for censorship are not evidence that this is the case, it is proof.
China's money Your tax dollars harder at work as your government asks YouTube to take down the offensive video:
Obama administration officials also flagged the trailer to YouTube and asked the company to review whether it violated the website's terms of serviceI actually don't mind YouTube deciding they don't want to have anything to do with the video. YouTube is a private company. They can censor what they want.
But the government of the United States encouraging censorship in my name? That crosses a line.
Also, where were the enlightened souls in the Obama administration when the Book of Mormon won all those Tonys?
Film Critic Jay Carney Insists "Offensive" Video Cause Of Middle East Unrest And Violence
Since when is our government in the business of judging and criticizing expressions of free speech?
From the video, Carney states:
This is a fairly volatile situation, and it is in response not to U.S. policy, not to, obviously, the administration, not to the American people. It is in response to a video – a film – that we have judged to be reprehensible and disgusting. That in no way justifies any violent reaction to it. But this is not a case of protests directed at the United States, writ large, or at U.S. policy. This is in response to a video that is offensive and – to Muslims.
Keep telling yourselves that, Jay. Somehow I believe, if the video was anti-Christian or anti-Jesus, you'd be defending the film maker's First Amendment rights.
November 6th will reveal whether Americans still buy into Obama's BS.
Update: Not only is the Obama Administration criticizing the video, they are attempting to censor free speech in order to appease violent protesters.

U.S. Government (aka, You, The Taxpayer) To Spend $100,000 For 30 Goats
From Fox Chicago:
[Amy Malick] says the city is looking at a pilot program of getting 30 goats to eat the grass and weeds in one, hard-to-mow area just east of Mannheim. [...]
The city says they've already received enthusiastic responses from a couple goat farmers interested in the bid, which is capped at $100,000. If all goes well, the goat grazing could be expanded to other areas of the airport. Just keep them away from Wrigley field.
I checked Xariif's dating site and found goats sell for as little as $10.
Leave it to government bureaucracy to pay 300 times more per goat. But I guess some of that expense goes toward 'goat specs'...

U.S. Embassy Tunis
September 14, 2012
Demonstrations are expected to take place today in the vicinity of the U.S. Embassy, and the security situation remains fluid. Media reports also indicate that demonstrations may take place in the Kasbah area in central Tunis. The U.S. Embassy remains open; however, access to the area around the Embassy may be restricted due to the demonstrations. If the security situation requires further changes to the availability of public services at the Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy, updates will be posted on the Embassy website: http://tunisia.usembassy.gov.
U.S. citizens should remain cautious and avoid areas where large gatherings may occur. Even demonstrations or events intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and possibly escalate into violence. U.S. citizens in Tunisia are urged to monitor local news reports and to plan their activities accordingly. U.S. citizens should review the current Country Specific Information for Tunisia.
Protesters also set fire to the American School in the Tunisian capital. The school was closed on Friday. "(U.S. President Barack) Obama, Obama, we are all Osamas," the protesters chanted, in reference to the slain al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden."First video" from inside embassy fromAllahu Snackbarers:
Another Egyptian Coptic Offense Against Islam Worthy of Death
1 August 2012Burned the shirt? OMFG! Why that is like totally Haram, surely the good Muslims will exact justice from these so called Copts for such an insult against the Prophet, Inshaallah?
Police in Dahshur early on Wednesday fired teargas to stop a Muslim mob from setting fire to a church, but the rioters instead torched several Christian properties and three police cars, officials said.
Ten policemen were among the 16 injured, according to the authorities.
The office of the local Coptic archbishop of Giza said the entire Christian population of Dahshur had now fled, according to the Associated Press.
The rioters "looted and torched shops, including a jewellery shop... and terrorised the local community, forcing them to leave their homes", the agency quoted the statement as saying.
Tension first erupted on Friday after a Christian laundry worker was accused by a Muslim client of singeing his shirt while ironing it.

Ministry of Boobies: Royal Edition
A French magazine on Friday published what appeared to be photos of Prince William's wife Kate sunbathing topless at a private house in southern France, prompting a strong condemnation from the royal family.I'm conflicted, I mean you know, Kate is hot. Popular. But then again what about my scruples. Then I remembered Jawa Report doesn't have any of that. So I did a little research.
Officials said the royal family was considering legal action for a "grotesque and totally unjustifiable" invasion of privacy in the same country where William's mother Princess Diana died while fleeing paparazzi.
The couple was "saddened" by the use of the photos, which appear genuine, royal officials said.
All I could come up with is a link to a picture of the cover of the magazine. Apparently France allows boobies on the cover? Looking at that, total suckage.
So the moral of the story is, if you're a royal or famous hot chick its always better when your boobie pics are done by a professional in attractive and artistic manner. Therefore I can't blame Her Royal Hotness for being outraged.
More here at Gawker where there is a link to all of them I can't see. So what are you folks in comments supposed to be doing? Some pirates you guys turned out to be today.

UK Media: Exclusive: America "Was Warned Of Embassy Attack And Did Nothing"...
The Independent UK:
The killings of the US ambassador to Libya and three of his staff were likely to have been the result of a serious and continuing security breach, The Independent can reveal.Remember, I have no way to confirm this and I really don't feel like even wanting to believe it. Our MFM is too interested in covering for the SCOAMF to expect them to do some actual like reporting stuff and getting down to the bottom of stuff. Oh, they did find the real name of the Mohammed movie guy. Frck em all to hell.
American officials believe the attack was planned, but Chris Stevens had been back in the country only a short while and the details of his visit to Benghazi, where he and his staff died, were meant to be confidential.
The US administration is now facing a crisis in Libya. Sensitive documents have gone missing from the consulate in Benghazi and the supposedly secret location of the "safe house" in the city, where the staff had retreated, came under sustained mortar attack. Other such refuges across the country are no longer deemed "safe".
Some of the missing papers from the consulate are said to list names of Libyans who are working with Americans, putting them potentially at risk from extremist groups, while some of the other documents are said to relate to oil contracts.
According to senior diplomatic sources, the US State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be targeted, but no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and "lockdown", under which movement is severely restricted[...]

Third American Murdered in Benghazi Attack Identified As Former Navy SEAL Glen Doherty Was SOFREP Contributor, Co-Wrote 21st Century Sniper w Brandon Webb4th American Murdered Identified AsFormer Navy SEAL Tyrone S. Woods
[bumped-scroll down for newer posts]
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
Glen Doherty, a former Navy SEAL from Massachusetts, was one of the victims of the deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, a family friend confirmed to Fox News[..]RIP sir.
A former ski instructor in Utah, Doherty reportedly trained as a sniper and medical officer after joining the Navy SEALs. He served for seven years before leaving to work at the private security firm.
Based on an account of the Benghazi attack provided by senior administration officials, Doherty was one of two people who died while trying to take cover from gunfire in the annex near the main U.S. consulate building. At least three others were wounded in the attack.
Update: More at Boston Globe:
A Winchester native, who was a former Navy SEAL, was one of four Americans killed in Libya by a mob of Islamic extremists, his sister said today.Indeed, it was well executed, the Libyan security team made sure of it.
Glen Doherty was 42 years old and was working for a private security company when he was killed with US Ambassador John Christopher Stevens in the American consulate in Benghazi Wednesday during what may have been a coordinated terrorist attack.
“He was on security detail and he was protecting the ambassador and also helping the wounded’’ when he was killed, said his sister, Katie Quigley of Marblehead[...]
Quigley said her family was officially notified around 5 p.m. Wednesday that he had been killed. She believes that the incident at the consulate was not a a random act of a few people upset about an inflammatory movie about the Muslim prophet Mohammed.
“I never thought he’d be another victim of September 11,’’ Quigley said.
“You have to understand. Glen was highly trained. He was the best of the best. He wouldn’t have gone down for some protest over a movie,’’ Quigley said. “This was serious, well-planned, well-executed. He was very good at what he did.’’

Update II: The SEALs lost another, Tyrone S. Woods was the other former SEAL murdered in the Benghazi attack.
I apologize I don't have a picture of him at this time[Updated below]. I would imagine his family needs time to grieve.
The attack on our diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya on Tuesday claimed the lives of four Americans. Yesterday, I spoke about two: Ambassador Chris Stevens and Information Management Officer Sean Smith. Today, we also recognize the two security personnel who died helping protect their colleagues. Tyrone S. Woods and Glen A. Doherty were both decorated military veterans who served our country with honor and distinction. Our thoughts, prayers, and deepest gratitude are with their families and friends. Our embassies could not carry on our critical work around the world without the service and sacrifice of brave people like Tyrone and Glen.Update: [h/t Mean Kitteh]Woods had recently moved to Henderson, Nevada
Tyrone’s friends and colleagues called him “Rone,” and they relied on his courage and skill, honed over two decades as a Navy SEAL. In uniform, he served multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. Since 2010, he protected American diplomatic personnel in dangerous posts from Central America to the Middle East. He had the hands of a healer as well as the arm of a warrior, earning distinction as a registered nurse and certified paramedic. All our hearts go out to Tyrone’s wife Dorothy and his three sons, Tyrone Jr., Hunter, and Kai, who was born just a few months ago.
We also grieve for Glen Doherty, called Bub, and his family: his father Bernard, his mother Barbara, his brother Gregory, and his sister Kathleen. Glen was also a former Navy SEAL and an experienced paramedic. And he put his life on the line many times, protecting Americans in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other hotspots. In the end, he died the way he lived – with selfless honor and unstinting valor.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends.
LAS VEGAS -- One of the four Americans killed in the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya on Wednesday had recently moved to the Las Vegas valley.
Tyrone Snowden Woods, 41, was a retired Navy SEAL senior chief petty officer, according to the U.S. Navy. He was providing security at the consulate, according to the State Department.
A neighbor confirmed Woods lived in Henderson, Nev. According to the State Department, Woods is survived by his wife, Dorothy and his three sons, Tyrone Jr., Hunter and Kai, who was born a few months ago.
RIP heroes and thank you for your service to our country.

White House clarifies Obama’s statement that Egypt is not an ‘ally’
Words fail me..
President Barack Obama didn't intend to signal any change in the U.S.-Egypt relationship last night when he said Egypt is not an "ally," the White House told The Cable today.Glad he cleared that up....god forbid he would shoot first and aim later. Jump on this Mitt Romney......HARD!
In an interview with Telemundo Wednesday night, Obama said that the U.S. relationship with the new Egyptian government was a "work in progress," and emphasized that the United States is counting on the government of Egypt to better protect the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, which was attacked by protesters on Sept. 11.
"I don't think that we would consider them an ally, but we don't consider them an enemy," Obama said. "They're a new government that is trying to find its way. They were democratically elected. I think that we are going to have to see how they respond to this incident."
That comment had Egypt watchers scratching their heads, especially since technically, Egypt was designated as a Major Non-NATO Ally in 1989 when Congress first passed the law creating that status, which gives them special privileges in cooperating with the United States, especially in the security and technology areanas.
White House spokesman Tommy Vietor told The Cable Thursday that the administration is not signaling a change in that status.
"I think folks are reading way too much into this," Vietor said. "‘Ally' is a legal term of art. We don't have a mutual defense treaty with Egypt like we do with our NATO allies. But as the president has said, Egypt is longstanding and close partner of the United States, and we have built on that foundation by supporting Egypt's transition to democracy and working with the new government."
Whose Democratic Party?
Via Free Beacon
A new advertisement scheduled to run in Florida makes the case that President Obama has pushed the Democratic Party to embrace anti-Israel policies, according to a copy of the ad obtained by the Free Beacon.Good on them.
In the coming days, the Emergency Committee for Israel, a pro-Israel advocacy organization, will release an ad entitled, “Whose Democratic Party?”
The spot, which will air during Sunday’s football game between the Miami Dolphins and the Oakland Raiders in what is being described as a “significant ad buy,” accuses Obama of leading his party to weaken the U.S.-Israel alliance.[ More...]
Reports: No Live Ammo For MarinesUpdate: Reports Not True
Via Free Beacon[h/t Moshe Ben Avram]
U.S. Marines defending the American embassy in Egypt were not permitted by the State Department to carry live ammunition, limiting their ability to respond to attacks like those this week on the U.S. consulate in Cairo.My blood is boiling at this time, if this is true only cements the dhimmitude in empty chairs administrations ROE!
Ambassador to Egypt Anne Patterson “did not permit U.S. Marine guards to carry live ammunition,” according to multiple reports on U.S. Marine Corps blogs spotted by Nightwatch. “She neutralized any U.S. military capability that was dedicated to preserve her life and protect the US Embassy.”
U.S. officials have yet to confirm or comment on the reports. Time magazine’s Battleland blog reported Thursday “Senior U.S. officials late Wednesday declined to discuss in detail the security at either Cairo or Benghazi, so answers may be slow in coming.”
If true, the reports indicate that Patterson shirked her obligation to protect U.S. interests, Nightwatch states.
Further Marine spokesman at Pentagon Lt Col Chris Hughes says these reports are NOT true. This is on the record:
“The Ambassador and RSO have been completely and appropriately engaged with the security situation. No restrictions on weapons or weapons status have been imposed. This information comes from the Det Commander at AMEMB Cairo.”
Libyan Officials: #Benghazi Consulate Attack Planned As 2-Part Jihadi Assault
A Libyan official said Thursday that the deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi was a planned, two-part operation that included a raid on a supposedly secret safe house -- an account that comports with what a top U.S. lawmaker told Fox News a day earlier[...]The SOB's of the Libyan "security dicks" certainly aided in giving the terrorists a heads up of where the "safe house" was.
Wanis al-Sharef, eastern Libya's deputy interior minister, then said on Thursday the attacks were suspected to have been timed to mark the 9/11 anniversary and that the militants used civilians protesting an anti-Islam film as cover for their action.
He said U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and another official were killed in the consulate, but that the attackers timed a second wave on the safe house just as Libyan and U.S. security forces were arriving to rescue evacuated consulate staff.
He said that second wave killed two more Americans and wounded nearly 30 Libyans and Americans.
Update: al-Reuters is apparently reporting Libya has arrested 4 men who may have aided in the attack. Hmmm, makes sense as what I referred to above
According to al-Sharef[Libyan Interior Ministry..ed], members of the Libyan security team seem to have indicated to the protesters the building to which the American officials had been relocated, and that building then came under attackPrevious:

Islam: The Untold Story
This is Tom Holland's documentary Islam: The Untold Story. Channel 4 was planning to air the program, but after the film was screened, Muslim outrage and threats forced the station to drop those plans. The program is still available on Channel 4's website, but viewing is limited to UK residents.
One important thing to note is that Tom Holland was unable to find direct evidence of Muhammad or authenticity of the Quran. Robert Spencer had the same problem while researching about Muhammad, and wrote about the lack of evidence in his book Did Muhammad Exist?.
Planning Spontaneous Outrage
n September 10th, advertisements that encouraged people to join in the protests of the film were in abundance.So we know we call September 11th Patriot Day, so what do the Egyptians in the Nour party call it?
The idea came from the Nour Salafist party’s Ahmed Khalil and Nadder Bakkar. Here is a rough translation:Nour Party announced in a statement on the official facebook page of the party, support for participation in the vigil held in front of the U.S. embassy on the fifth evening (Tuesday) to condemn the film for offending the Prophet (peace be upon him) on American television. The Engineer Jalal, once Secretary-General of the party, said that a number of party leaders are taking part in the vigil, led by Dr. Ahmed Khalil and Nader Bakkar, in addition to members of the party from the various provinces.”This was sent out one day before the 9/11 anniversary. So we can conclude that the agitation was started days before, then advertised on September 10 to turn out on September 11th specifically.
al-Qaeda day, I shit you not.
The Arabic sources show that this was in support of al-Qaeda day, posting al-Qaeda flags and some of the chanting was about reminding Americans that there are many al-Qaedas (ie Nour Party). Americans should ask themselves a hard question:And the ultimate goal, to implement Sharia law's prohibition against blasphemy against Islam. Which of course includes not only insults against the Prophet or Allah, but also includes any criticism or perceived derogatory opinions, even satire, of Islam.
They want to implement this not only on Muslim majority nations, but as a part of international law. To make you their subject, to dominate you, to create a crime that can be used to make Dhimmis of the entire international community.

al-Qaeda's 9/11 Messages
There's been a lot of talk about an al-Qaeda tape featuring Zawahiri, Ghadan talking about the death of al-Liby and calling on Libyans to exact revenge for his death.
On September 11, 2012, Al-Qaeda's media wing, Al-Sahab, released a new video featuring the group's leader, Ayman Al-Zawahiri; U.S. born spokesman Adam Gadahn; slain commander Abu Yahya Al-Libi; official in charge of da'wa and media in Urdu Ustad Ahmad Farooq; and old footage of the late radical Yemeni-American cleric Anwar Al-Awlaki.Its important that folks know what al-Qaeda is saying. Even more important would holding the Zawahiri brothers responsible for this week's violence.
The two-part video, titled "Truth Has Come and Falsehood has Perished," is over an hour and half in duration, and is in three versions – Arabic, English, and Urdu. The video was first posted on the jihadi forum Shumoukh Al-Islam.
Reports: Ambassador Stevens Qaddafi'd?
Yesterday I read reports that the Libyan doctor who pronounced Ambassador Stevens dead said he "Had bleeding in his stomach." Today there are unconfirmed reports that he was treated in a similar manner as was Gadhafi.
Washinton Times:According to the Lebanese news organization Tayyar.org, citing AFP news sources, U.S. ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens, who was killed by gunmen that stormed the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on Tuesday, was reportedly raped before being murdered. A google translation of the report says.Here is the original report as well as the video report from Libya.
A news report made by the Libyan Free Press is also reporting that Ambassador Stevens was sodomized before he was killed: "Libya - USA Ambassador in Bengazi sodomized and killed by his own al-Qaeda puppets."
I'd take this with a giant grain of salt. But its possible.
I for one was pretty upset by the way the Libyan rebels murdered Gadhafi in cold blood on video after his capture. Not so much that Gadhafi didn't have it coming but that we'd sided with war criminals.
Of course you can imagine the outrage from the left had the same been done to Saddam under Bush. It turns out Obama got a pass on that one. Not only did he get a pass but most folks disagree with me. Even making light of Gadhafi's fate.
Regardless of how Ambassador Stevens was murdered the left needs to stop making love to the Islamists and make a little war on those responsible. Because the results of the current policy are pretty much self evident.

US Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens Murdered in Benghazi LibyaConfirmed: FSO Sean Smith Also KilledReport: Libyan Ansar al-Sharia Has Claimed Responsibility For AttackUS: Attack Was Planned[Bumped]
The US ambassador to Lybia J. Christopher Stevens was murdered by Islamic militants on the 11th anniversary of 9/11. May he rest in peace. Three other staffers were also murdered in the attack.
Update by SH: Foreign Service Information Officer Sean Smith confirmed as one of the three others killed:
Sean Smith was a husband and a father of two, who joined the Department ten years ago. Like Chris, Sean was one of our best. Prior to arriving in Benghazi, he served in Baghdad, Pretoria, Montreal, and most recently The Hague.The Mittani, an online gaming community, posted this tribute to Smith: RIP Vile Rat[Update by SH] The RIP tribute also included this- chilling chat:
"(12:54:09 PM) vile_rat: assuming we don't die tonight. We saw one of our 'police' that guard the compound taking pictures.""Taking pictures" fits with what I updated below "Libyan security team seem to have indicated to the protesters the building to which the American officials had been relocated.
We pray for the families of those murdered and that justice is served on those who attack the United States.
The United States ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, was killed in a rocket attack on the U.S. Consulate in the city of Benghazi on Tuesday, President Obama said Wednesday.Despite the stated pretext for the attacks, I find the fact that they both occurred on the anniversary of 9/11 a bit more than a coincidence. After all the trailer for the film has been available since at least July. I always find that Islamists never do an organized attack without some pretext for justification, they have a very long list of such grievances.
"I strongly condemn the outrageous attack on our diplomatic facility in Benghazi, which took the lives of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens," Obama said in a statement.
"Chris was a courageous and exemplary representative of the United States," Obama said.
The other three victims were American security staff, said a contractor working at the mission, who asked not to be named for security reasons.
He said he saw all four bodies on the street Wednesday morning.
Libyan officials also blamed the attack on former elements of the Gadhafi regime. A claim that is also very dubious.
The reports are that he was killed by a rocket attack. I'm not sure but this image appears to show the ambassador's body in the hands of the attackers(also here). And all the staffers were drug into the streets according to reports.
I've some video of the scene below the fold. May those who murdered Ambassador Stevens and our citizens be brought to justice.
We will add updates as more information becomes available.
Update II: Its worth noting that al-Zawahiri called for revenge for the death of Abu Yahya al-Libi in a video message also timed close to the 9/11 anniversary.[Update by SH]:
According to al-Sharef[Libyan Interior Ministry..ed], the angry mob stormed the consulate after the U.S. troops who responded fired rounds into the air to try and disperse the crowd. Al-Sharef said there had been threats that Islamic militants might try to take revenge for the death of al Qaeda's No. 2 commander Abu Yahya al-Libi, who was killed in a U.S. drone strike in Pakistan in June, and he said the U.S. consulate should have been better protected.Update III by SH: This paragraph alone quoting Wanis al-Sharef, a Libyan Interior Ministry, is telling:
Confirming al-Libi's death for the first time in a video posted online Monday, al Qaeda chief Ayman Al-Zawahri called on Muslim's in al-Libi's native Libya to take revenge for his death.
He said Stevens, 52, and other officials were moved to a second building - deemed safer - after the initial wave of protests at the consulate compound. According to al-Sharef, members of the Libyan security team seem to have indicated to the protesters the building to which the American officials had been relocated, and that building then came under attack."Seemed to"? So in other words the security team decided to help out a bit.
Update IV: Apparently, the Libyan jihadi group, Ansar al-Sharia, has claimed responsibility for the attack
There have been indications in recent months that radical, armed Islamic groups have gained a foothold in Libya since the fall of the Qaddafi regime.
One of the groups to emerge in post-revolution Libya, Ansar al-Sharia, claimed responsibility Wednesday for the attack in Benghazi, which has been condemned by the country's new government.
Update V (Jane): Meet the Ambassador, in his own words:
Update VI by SH: What we have thought all along, the attack on the embassy was planned and the movie was used as an excuse:
CNNBut U.S. sources told CNN on Wednesday that the Benghazi attack was planned, and the attackers used the protest outside the consulate as a diversion. The sources could not say whether the attackers instigated the protest or merely took advantage of it, and they say they don't believe Stevens was specifically targeted.Ambassador Stevens was dragged through the streets[Image I won't show]
A senior U.S. official familiar with the details of the attack said a rocket-propelled grenade set the building ablaze, leaving the Americans facing a fire inside and attackers outside. Stevens and the others who died were separated from the rest of the staff while trying to escape to the roof of the building and succumbed to smoke inhalation, the senior official said.
Final moments of Chris Stevens, US Ambassador to Libya. He died of wounds after mob and Islamist attacked Ud embassy in Benghazi with rocket launchersSpinning about what happened continues.
Update VII by SH: Yes, I think so:[h/t Mean Kitteh]Did Libyan Security Forces Assist In Embassy Attack?
California-born ambassador Christopher Stevens was killed in the assault, but it was not clear how or where he died. U.S. consular staff were rushed to a safe house after the initial attack, Libya’s Deputy Interior Minister Wanis Al-Sharif said[...]With Sean Smith's chilling chat about security personnel "taking pictures" and what I updated about "security personnel "showing where the embassy staff where located". The answer is yes, absolutely.
An evacuation plane with U.S. commandos units then arrived from Tripoli to evacuate them from the house.
“It was supposed to be a secret place and we were surprised the armed groups knew about it
Update by SH: Sigh: 12 Photos Of Libyans Apologizing To Americans
Yet another update by SH: U.S. evacuates staff from Benghazi, cuts Tripoli embassy staff to unspecified "emergency" levels
Yet another update by SH: In a volatile area this administration feels one would be safe with a lock and key. Apology tour FAIL and 4 of our own died because of it.
No Marines, no bulletproof windows. No nothing-- except "lock and key security," also known as "no security."BTW, Obama skipped Intel briefing before the embassy attacks. Apparently he prefers to read the intel instead of meeting with his security advisers. 9/11 anniversary's are always a time to keep track of chatter, video's like Zawahiri released and stuff. Now Americans are dead and he can't vote present.
The administration "explains" this by saying it was an "interim facility." Apparently you don't have to fear attacks at an "interim facility." It's like a Church in the Highlander series.
Except it's not.
But it would be crude politics to say something like "Obama should have provided security at the 'interim facility.'"
How was he to know there was any danger? It's not like Benghazi has long been a, what are the right words?, an Al Qaeda stronghold or anything.
Oh wait. That's right, it always has been an Al Qaeda stronghold.
Now he's sending in ships and helicopters and Marines.[More, Ace is on a roll on the SCOAMF]
Update, again: No new information to speak of in this briefing. There is still no timeline on what happened to Ambassador Stevens after the attack and when they finally received his body several hours later: Briefing by Senior Administration Officials to Update Recent Events in Libya
Oh, and the AP of terrorists has identified the "real name" of the manager of the company that made the Mohammad film. Gee, who gives a flying f**k. He didn't kill Ambassador Stevens, Mr Smith and the two others. ROPMA did, dammit to hell!
AQAP #2 al Shihri may not be dead
Dagnabbit. In an interview in the Saudi Okaz, the Yemeni Interior Minister says he has no info on whether AQAP #2 al Shihiri was killed in an air strike, and he says to ask the Defense Ministry which originally reported the story through an anonymous official. Meanwhile AQAP denies he's dead, and they are usually the most accurate in this situation, unfortunately.
Its quite possible the US media was spun by the Yemeni DOD for the 9/11 anniversary. I thought it was way too quick for all the al Shihri obits, because the Yemeni Defense Ministry has released total disinformation time and time and time again, see my earlier post. I don't know if hes dead or not, but I wouldn't count on it. Its the fifth time he's been announced as killed or captured.

Muslim Brotherhood Condemns Embassy Attacks... Somewhat...
The Muslim Brotherhood's political arm, The Freedom and Justice Party, released this statement on the embassy attacks:
The Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) expresses strong condemnation of the film produced and promoted by US Coptic Christian individuals, which deals serious insults to the Prophet Mohammed.
The party considers the film a racist crime and a failed attempt to provoke sectarian strife between the two elements of the nation: Muslims and Christians.
Moreover, the FJP considers this movie totally unacceptable, from the moral and religious perspectives, and finds that it excessively goes far beyond all reasonable boundaries of the freedoms of opinion and expression.
The film is certainly a blatant violation of religious sanctities, international norms and conventions on human rights which emphasize that freedom of expression with respect to religion must be restricted by controls within the law that safeguard public interest, in order to protect lives, morals, rights and freedoms.
The FJP affirms that both elements of the Egyptian people – Christians and Muslims – have been and will always be united in the face of such despicable attempts that seek to foment conflict in this homeland, and to throw it in a deep abyss, a never-ending spiral of violence.
The FJP points that the best approach to combat these negative phenomena is by promoting dialogue among religions and cultures and to promote mutual understanding and joint action to address racism and extremism.
The FJP appeals to wise and honorable people of this country, especially the clergy in both Al-Azhar and the Church, as well as media professionals, to work hard to avoid sedition, and to expose those who instigated it, and to urgently bring them to trial, on charges of insulting heavenly religions, so that such acts are not repeated ever again.

Empty Chair President
Good leadership is most needed during a crisis. But a poor leader is absent during a crisis.
Below the fold, Footprints In The Sand, slightly modified.
One night an American had a dream. He dreamed
he was walking along the beach with the Obamessiah.
Across the sky flashed scenes from his life in America.
For each scene he noticed two sets of
footprints in the sand: one belonging
to him, and the other to the Obamessiah and Big Government.
When the last scene of his life flashed before him
and he was dying from endless debt, submission to inferior cultures
and had succumbed to the incompetent medical treatment under Obamacare,
he looked back at the footprints in the sand.
He noticed that many times along the path of
of the last four years there was only one set of footprints.
He also noticed that it happened at the very
lowest and saddest times in America.
This really bothered him and he
questioned the Obamessiah about it:
"President Obama, you said that once I decided to follow
you, you'd walk with me all the way.
You said we'd have hope & change.
But I have noticed that during the most
troublesome times in America, there is no hope
and only change for the worse.
There is only one set of footprints.
I don't understand why when
We needed a leader most you would leave."
The Obamessiah replied:
"Well, uh... uh... what I decided... (where's the teleprompter?)
During...um...hold on... during the difficult times caused by my predecessor,
when you... when you... see only one set of... uh... uh... footprints,
That was... that was then that I went to play golf."
Arab Spring! Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood Call For Nationwide Protests Over Outrage Over SomethingUpdate: Apology Not Accepted Kaffir!President Morsi's Tepid Response
The religion of perpetual outrage continues to rage:
Egypt's powerful Muslim Brotherhood on Wednesday called for nationwide protests Friday after a film deemed offensive to Islam sparked a deadly attack in Libya and furious protests in Cairo."Peaceful" my arse.
The Brotherhood calls "for peaceful protests on Friday outside all the main mosques in all of Egypt's provinces to denounce offenses to religion and to the Prophet," the Muslim Brotherhood's Secretary General Mahmud Hussein said in a statement.
He also urged all "national forces to join the protests."
The Muslim Brotherhood, from which President Mohammed Morsi emerged, is the largest and most organized political force in the country.
BTW, a little bit of OWS and Anonymous types joined alQaeda supporters protest yesterday:
Here are the the above rage boys in action:
Thanks to DMartyr
Update II: Now Deleted apology not accepted kaffir! They want more blood, hence this Friday's " million rage boys day of hate" protest.
In reaction to the film, hundreds of followers of Islamic movements yesterday surrounded the entrances leading to the American embassy in Cairo to denounce the film that offends the Prophet Muhammad, which was produced in collaboration with Coptic Egyptian immigrants in the United States. The US embassy had a heavy security presence in order to protect the premises.Blah, blah, blah.
The protest was attended by leaders of Islamic movements, most notably Mohammad al-Zawahiri, brother of al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri; a number of sons of Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, the Emir of the Gamaa Islamiyya group; Sheikh Gamal Saber, coordinator of the Hazimoun movement and Sheikh Abu-Yahya al-Masri, spokesman for the Salafist “Voice of Wisdom Coalition,” which called for the protests.
Zawahiri said that the US government's response — by issuing a statement through its embassy in Cairo condemning the producers of the video that insults the Prophet — was not enough. He added that the filmmakers should be arrested and brought to trial, like Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman [blind shiekh..cornholing in prison here..ed], who was falsely accused of slander and inciting violence.
Gamal Saber, coordinator of the Hazimoun movement and co-founder of the Egyptian Umma Party, said that there is ongoing coordination between Islamic and revolutionary forces to organize a million-man demonstration in the event of the film being aired in the United States. He said that the forces are demanding that US citizenship be revoked from the Coptic Egyptian immigrants involved in the production of the film and that they be prevented from entering Egypt.
Update: Egyptian President Morsi condemns the film makers too
[Googlish]The presidency deplores the most sinful condemnation try a class insulting Ali shrine Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) and condemns people who produced this extreme action and that the people Egyptian Muslims and Christians may reject this insulting sanctities. Also emphasizes the Presidency of the Republic that the Egyptian state is responsible for the protection of private and public property as well as diplomatic missions and the headquarters of embassies of different countries.Also stresses the respect and protection of the right of expression and the right to demonstrate peacefully within the law as Will oppose firmly any attempt is not responsible for lawlessness.Yeah, legal action aka Islamic blasphemy law.
This has commissioned Mr. President / Embassy of the Arab Republic of Egypt in the United States to take possible legal actions to respond to those persons who seek to sabotage the relations And dialogue between peoples and nations.
Not in your dreams bitch!
Where Were The Marines?
Security at the consulate was apparently provided by Libyan nationals hired by the United States. While security for American embassies is typically provided by our own Marines, the two Marines reported killed in yesterday's attacks appear not to have been stationed at the embassy, but were sent there from another unknown location as the violence erupted. There is also no indication if these two Marines were the only American military personnel on site at the time of Ambassador Stevens's death.
All reports indicate that the security forces at the consulate were overwhelmed by the size of the militant crowds and offered no resistance as they stormed the building, looted it, and killed the four Americans.
As the facts surrounding the destruction of the American consulate and death of Ambassador Stevens become known, investigators will focus on these questions: Did the State Department provide adequate security for our embassy staff there? If not, why not?
And finally, the most important question of all: Where were the Marines?
One of the most volatile areas in the world and our embassy wasn't proper protected? Of all the embassies, those near the "Arab spring" should have been given priority.
CBS News is also reporting that those same Libyan guards hired to protect the embassy may have moved the U.S. Ambassador and other embassy workers to a less secure build - and then told the angry mob where they were.
No words can adequately express the outrage I feel right now.

“The ships are definitely Russian,” said noted naval author Norman Polmar after reviewing hi-resolution photos from the event. “There’s no question of that in my mind.”
Naval experts concluded the background was a photo composite of Russian ships that were overflown by what appear to be U.S. trainer jets. It remains unclear how or why the Democratic Party used what’s believed to be images of the Russian Black Sea Fleet at their convention.
Remains unclear? Oh no, it's clear. Conventions are not run by rank and file party members, they're run by the hard core party faithful. And this clearly demonstrates that the people in charge of the Democrat party have no clue when it comes to our military. Hell, I'd bet most of the people who planned this years DNC were there to spit on our military when they came back from Vietnam.

MEMRI: Testing YouTube's 'Promotes Terrorism' Flagging Feature For Videos Of Osama Bin Laden, 9/11, Al-Qaeda – The Results: 58 Of 100 Remain Active
Certainly no surprise for the Jawa Report, we didn't make the category JihadTube for nothing. We are constantly frustrated that Google's YouTube doesn't do jack sh*t about terrorist propaganda videos. After constantly flagging videos just to see them remain because - "free speech" - cop-out bs. Also stuff like this:
In the past three years, as part of the MEMRI Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor (JTTM) Project, we determined that YouTube has emerged as the leading U.S. website for online jihad. It has replaced – and surpassed – websites administered by jihadists themselves, which were previously their venue of choice.It is good to know MEMRI is reporting this to the powers that be, but...., a hell of a lot of good it has done - so far.
MEMRI has briefed members of the U.S. government and Congress on this issue, and has also directly offered its assistance to YouTube in identifying videos that incite violence and terrorist acts for possible removal.

Arab Spring! Islamists Storm American Consulate in BenghaziReport: US Official Killed & Another Wounded

An armed mob has attacked the US consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi and set fire to the building, witnesses reported, in what they said was a protest at a film they said offended Islam.Update by SH: Report "An American has been killed in the protest". I will link when I have more info.
[Updated]Contacted by AFP, a US State Department official in Washington said US officials were still seeking information about the situation in Benghazi.
Asked whether the attack in Libya and the earlier demonstration against the US mission in Egypt could be connected, the official said it was unclear yet if the protests had been coordinated.
Another Libyan witness said armed men had closed the streets leading up to the consulate, among them ultra-conservative Salafists

Update by SH: Out of respect to the family of the US official killed I am putting the video below the fold:[Note: yet another update below fold]
Update: This is the original one by film maker Sam Becile:
Sam Bacile, an American citizen who said he produced, directed and wrote the two-hour film said he had not anticipated such a furious reaction.
Speaking from a telephone with a California number, he said the film was produced in English and he doesn't know who dubbed it in Arabic.
"The main problem is I am the first one to put on the screen someone who is (portraying) Muhammad. It makes them mad," he said in an interview in a telephone number in California. "But we have to open the door. After 9/11 everybody should be in front of the judge, even Jesus, even Muhammad."
He said many of the film's cast quit half way through the production, which he started "three or four" years ago, because they were afraid of Muslims.
He said the film also addresses the persecution of Copts in Egypt and blames the U.S. and its allies for fighting Muslims. "The U.S. should fight the ideology, not the people."
Morris Sadek, an Egyptian-born Christian in the U.S. known for his anti-Islam views, told The Associated Press from Washington that he was promoting the video on his website and on certain TV stations, which he did not identify.
He said the video "explains the problems of the Copts who suffer from Muslims," which he blamed on the Koran itself.

Portland School Principal: Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwiches Are Racist
It seems mentioning 'sandwiches' might offend people who don't eat sandwiches.
Verenice Gutierrez, principal at Harvey Scott K-8 School, seems to believe that there are racial connotations associated with the common lunch-time meal.
According to Gutierrez, using the example of a peanut butter sandwich in classroom lessons is technically a problematic and discriminatory move — one that was made by a teacher in her building last school year. While such a notion may bring out laughs among those who find it absurd, the principal explains her logic.
“What about Somali or Hispanic students, who might not eat sandwiches?,” she said. “Another way would be to say: ‘Americans eat peanut butter and jelly, do you have anything like that?’ Let them tell you. Maybe they eat torta. Or pita.”
The school's contact information is HERE. Tell them what a stupid, ignorant ass the principal is. Just say it nicely.

Angry protesters climbed the walls of the U.S. Embassy in Cairo on Tuesday and hauled down the American flag, replacing it with a black flag with Islamic emblems.
The incident prompted U.S. Embassy guards to fire off a volley of warning shots as a large crowd gathered outside, apparently upset about the production of a film thought to insult the Prophet Mohammed, said CNN producer Mohammed Fahmy, who was on the scene.

OBL Raid: Parents Of SEAL Team Six Member Say Unit Endangered By Obama Administration Statements
I salute them for coming forward to tell their story, their son and all of SEAL Team Six deserved better from this administration.
Identifying the Special Operations Force behind the Usama bin Laden raid amounted to placing a target on the back of the team members as well as their families, according to the parents of Aaron Vaughn, a member of SEAL Team Six who was killed in Afghanistan in 2011.I remember when Biden named them, my jaw literally dropped. It wasn't a "gaffe", it was stupidity.
The Vaughns spoke with Fox News as part of an ongoing report on the war in Afghanistan for an upcoming episode of the "Fox Files." While the Vaughns do not believe their son was part of the bin Laden mission, they said the entire team shared the victory, and eventually the shock, of being named.
“Aaron called me and said, 'Mom, you need to wipe your social media clean of any reference to me or any of my buddies. Just disconnect completely,'” Karen Vaughn said her son warned after Vice President Biden publicly identified the SEALs on May 3, 2011 -- two days after the raid. “He [Aaron] actually said to me, 'Mom, there's chatter, and all of our lives could be in danger, including yours' ... then I realized all of those families, you know, you're talking about a community of around three hundred families who were all of a sudden made targets by this administration.”[...]
Fox News asked the White House National Security spokesman and the vice president's office for a response, but none was immediately available.
The Pakistani doctor who aided the raid has felt this administrations stupidity also. ISI jailed and tortured him.
The Obama campaign continues to push that Rep Ryan has no foreign policy experience. Biden does.
San Jose Imam Arrested in Mexico, Hezbollah Ties
Another American Muslim arrested as a terrorist, yet I didn't see a single story about this over the past few days. Not even on Fox News. Jewish Press:
Over the weeked, three suspected members of the terrorist organization Hezbollah, a proxy group for Iran, were arrested in the capital city of the Yucatan Province, Mexico.After he served his time and was released, he jumped parole and fled to Mexico where he and two others were arrested over the weekend and then deported to the US. Local media reported that a full military style assault led to the trio's capture and that this was an indication that far more was going on here then a simple parole violation.
One of the three, Rafic Mohamad Labboun Allaboun, 44, is a Lebanese American. According to Benito Rosell Isaac, head of the Mexican National Migration Institute (INM) in Yucatan, Labboun had a warrant out for his arrest from Houston, Texas, and he was deported there within hours of his arrest. He had a court appearance on Monday morning, September 10, and then was returned to the San Jose division of the Northern District Court of California....
Labboun was convicted by a jury on July 19, 2010, on seven counts of bank fraud. The fraud involved the creation of false lines of credit between several US banks. Credit cards and checks from those lines were then used to obtain more than $100,000 in gold from Saudi Arabia. The money is believed to have ended up in Lebanon, and was allegedly used to finance terrorist activities by Hezbollah. The money was never recovered.

Louisville: Mahmoud Yousef Hindi Charged With Killing President of Spring Creek HOA
Because he prolly disagreed with the HOA over the height and width of his fence
[Creeping Sharia]LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A Louisville man accused of opening fire at a homeowners association meeting, killing one and critically wounding another[Update: **he passed away Sunday...ed], was ordered held on a $1 million bond Saturday at an initial court hearing where a prosecutor called him “the epitome of danger to the community.”Creeping Sharia linked to original article at HufPo. I was not surprised to see a lot of it's the HOA's fault! in comments there.
*A not guilty plea* was entered on behalf of 55-year-old Mahmoud Yousef Hindi to charges of murder, assault and wanton endangerment in the Thursday evening shooting at a church[...]
Police say Hindi, a doctor educated in Jordan, had a history of disputes with the homeowners group revolving around a fence that the association said didn’t meet its height or design requirements in the upscale neighborhood of Spring Creek.
The association’s attorney says the organization brought the zoning violation charges to the city. Hindi wrote several letters to the attorney, expressing anger and contempt for the attorney.
In one letter that ranted about several neighbors, Hindi cited the Quran, the theory of creationism, the idea that America has gone to Communism, threatens to form his own homeowners association and accused neighbors of stealing his “no trespassing signs” in the dispute over the fence.
“You would not believe some of the crap he wrote in these letters,” said Mark Wagner, a former president of the homeowners association. “It was rambling stuff.”
Wagner, who used to live near Hindi, said his predecessor as association president resigned from the post and abruptly moved from the neighborhood after having property-line disputes with Hindi.
“They were so scared of him that they moved,” Wagner said in a phone interview. “They dumped their house. They sold it to the first person who looked at their house … to get away from this guy.”[ More...

*While researching this, he confessed to the killing. So I suppose the "not guilty" plea he entered means our laws don't pertain to him or something.
A doctor charged with shooting one man to death and critically wounding another during a homeowners association meeting at Springdale Community Church Thursday evening confessed to the crimes, a Louisville Metro Police official said.**Family remembers man killed at Homeowners Association meeting
Mahmoud Yousef Hindi, 55, was charged Friday with killing the president of the Spring Creek Homeowners Association and wounding a member of the association’s board of directors.
Lt. Barry Wilkerson, commander of the homicide unit, said at a news conference that investigators were looking into reports from neighbors that the shooting stemmed from a dispute Hindi had with the homeowners association over a driveway and fence he had built on his property.
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Police said they are in the process of upgrading the charges the man who police said shot the president and vice president of his homeowners association.Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of these two gentlemen.
Mahmoud Yousef Hindi, 55, is already charged with the murder of David Merritt, 73. Merritt died Thursday night. Marvin Fisher, 69, passed away Sunday morning from his injuries.
Ministry of Boobies: Nipplegate Edtion
We always strive to post a lot of boobies, yet stay PG-13. That's a delicate balance.
The New Yorker has a Facebook page for our cartoons, which a lot of you like, or maybe it’s just one person with a lot of time on their hands, liking the page over and over again. But in any case, it’s a whole lotta like. We like that.I was going to really work hard on this post and add images of the offending squiggles, some boobie examples for more research and all that. Then I was thwarted by our server and the man. So you'll just have to settle for this link.
What we don’t like is that we got temporarily banned from Facebook for violating their community standards on “Nudity and Sex,” by posting this Mick Stevens cartoon:
He's been released on his own recognizance, he should be blogging shortly.
The arrest followed a Saturday night flight between Baltimore-Washington International Airport in Maryland and Denver. An affidavit filed in conjunction with the criminal complaint states that Drinan sat down, hooked up his laptop computer to the airline's Wi-Fi Internet service and began viewing pornography.
A person seated nearby noticed a man fondling himself and ultimately alerted a flight attendant, the Justice Department said, citing the affidavit. A male flight attendant arrived and, after finding the suspect's genitalia exposed, told him to "put his pants back together,"
Another Good Reason to Nuke Stuff
The Taliban have threatened to kill Prince Harry during his up and coming tour of duty.
A Taliban spokesman said Monday that the terror group would use "all our strength" to kidnap or kill the U.K's Prince Harry, who has just begun serving a four-month tour of duty as a chopper pilot in Afghanistan.Dear Taliban, if you so much as hurt one hair on his head, we'll give you such a pinch.
"We are using all our strength to get rid of him, either by killing or kidnapping," Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told Reuters by phone. "We have informed our commanders in Helmand to do whatever they can to eliminate him."
And also I'd like to thank those effing douchebags at Reuters, Hamid Shalizi in Kabul, Mohammed Abbas in London and Adrian Croft, for taking the time on this anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, when the Taliban are unable to spread propaganda via their websites, to not only suck off Zabihullah Mujahid but to help the entire Taliban and Haqqani network by calling them up, asking stupid effing questions and spreading their propaganda for them.
And also we'd like to thank Randy Krieder at ABC for helping the Reuters crew become the biggest assmaggots they can be.

(San Jose, California) A lawsuit against Apple alleging violation of the iPhone4 warranty was filed by Betsalel Williamson in January 2011.
Class-action status was sought with claims that Apple misleads consumers by asserting the glass case of the iPhone4 is ultradurable.
On the other hand, plaintiff Williamson alleged that the iPhone4 was "quickly scarred and broken by normal, foreseeable use."
Last week, U.S. District Judge Edward Davila dismissed the case remarking it's a stretch to suggest the "ordinary purpose" of the iPhone4 is to drop it. (more….)
Sweeeet! AQAP #2 Killed in Yemen
This hasn't been confirmed by the US yet, and Yemen has announced al-Shihri's death before, so we'll keep M.C. Hammer on ice. But until that time, one can hope:
Said al-Shihri, described as the second-in-command of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), has been killed in an operation in southern Yemen, government officials say.Keep your fingers crossed.
Al-Shihri was reportedly killed with six others in the Hadramawt area.
Some reports say Yemeni troops were involved, others that it was an air strike, possibly a US drone attack.

News? Pakistan Sees US as "Worst Enemy", not al Qaeda/Taliban/Haqqanis
Ok, let's be honest here: is any one really surprised by the "revelation" that the Pakistani ISI views the US as the biggest threat rather than al Qaeda, the Taliban, or the Haqqanis?
This is news in the sense that someone in Pakistan dares say it out loud. Normally, this is the kind of talk that gets people in Pakistan killed.
So, yeah, this is news in that sense.
Yet, the very fact that it is so rarely articulated makes it fascinating nonetheless:
“They said ‘The Americans are our worst enemies, worse than the Indians,’” [the Pakistani doctor jailed for helping the CIA find bin Laden, Shakil] Afridi, who spoke from inside Peshawar Central Jail, said as he recalled the brutal interrogation and torture he suffered after he was initially detained.As to the extent to which the Pakistanis are funding the terrorists in the Haqqani network? Well, I find this completely believable:
“I tried to argue that America was Pakistan’s biggest supporter – billions and billions of dollars in aid, social and military assistance -- but all they said was, ‘These are our worst enemies. You helped our enemies.’”
Afridi said that before he was moved to Peshawar in May, he met Abdul Kayyum, the nephew of a chief of the Wazir tribe, who had been apprehended by the ISI for reasons that are unclear.Not a revelation, per se, but still pretty damned annoying.
Kayyum explained to the doctor that three years earlier, his uncle, Khan Marjakee, had been instructed by the ISI to raise funds from the tribal community for the Haqqanis, which Marjakee then did.
“Without doubt, the Haqqanis are 100 percent supported by the ISI,” said Afridi.
He then goes on to say that Arabs -- presumably al Qaeda recruits -- caught by the ISI are sent packing to Afghanistan:
The militants were told by the ISI, ‘According to the Americans, we’re supposed to arrest you. We don’t want anything to do with you, but will support you by letting you go. Go back to Afghanistan and steer clear of the Americans.’ And then they would be released.”But apparently the same courtesy isn't extended to white guys caught trying to get to Afghanistan. White guys are routinely abused. I guess the ISI doesn't think it can go so far as to let them go. Or maybe they just don't like white guys. Anti-colonialism, and all that jazz.
Oh, and there's an American:
Afridi would talk to an American, referred to only as Brown, as the doctor was the only person who spoke fluent English there.This news about "Ismael Brown" is intriguing. Any speculation on who this guy is?
Brown was held for four months after he crossed illegally into Pakistan from Iran and was arrested in the southwest city of Quetta, notorious for its links with the Taliban. He had told the ISI he was on his way to Afghanistan.
“He was white skinned, had red hair and tattoos,” Afridi said. “He was a mason by profession and told me he came for jihad. He had converted to Islam five years before and had adopted the Muslim name Ismael.
“When he came back from interrogation, he told me he had been beaten very seriously. I last saw him on May 1. I have no idea what happened to him.”
Thanks to you-know-who.

Group Calls for Further Sanctions Against Islamophone Judge
If people suspicious of Islam are Islamophobes, doesn't that make people who are overly deferential to it Islamophones? I'm not talking about those who fear reprisals from Muslims for this or that imagined offense. Those people are just scared.
I'm talking about your typical liberal multiculturalist who perceives the world in terms of haves and have-nots. Between the powerful and the weak, with justice being accomplished only when the perceived weak group is protected from the powers that be.
Such, I believe, is the case of Judge Mark Martin who dismissed an assault case against a Muslim and then proceeded to lecture the victim for 15 minutes on why Freedom of Speech and Religion do not protect speech which offends Muslims.
The judge has already been privately rebuked by a judicial oversight board, but the folks at The Legal Project believe that further action against the judge is warranted and are appealing for tougher action.
I agree. Unfortunately, though, the rise of academic disciplines based on Marxist notions of power -- such as 'gender studies', 'African-American studies', etc. -- are nearly ubiquitous. On many college campuses classes based within these disciplines are part of the core required curriculum. So it shouldn't be any surprise that the most educated among us, indoctrinated to believe that the proper role of courts is in protecting minorities from the man, would come to the conclusion that the actual victim in this case wasn't, you know, the victim. Since white guys can never be the victim when they hold so much power in society.
So, Islamophones are those that are overly respectful of minority religions such as Islam. It's a statement that they are more enlightened than the rest of America.
You know the type. They drive a Prius and although they don't know much about the NBA and couldn't tell you who won last year's superbowl, they do watch every game of world cup soccer qualifying matches and once were the proud owners of WNBA season tickets.
Also, is the WNBA still a thing? I honestly don't know the answer to that.
Best Paid, Worst Performing Union Teachers Walk Off Job
Teachers with the highest average salary of $76,000 a year - before benefits - have gone on strike for more pay and better benefits. They currently pay only 3% of their full coverage health care benefits. Keep in mind, Chicago teachers have among the worst performance records. Only 56% of high schoolers go on to graduate.
The city had offered a 16% pay raise and the guarantee that annual raises for experience would never be rescinded, even if the city ran out of funds, but the teacher's union said it wasn't enough. The union is demanding, in addition to pay increases, better working conditions such as more councilors and social workers for the students. In other words, more union jobs at tax payer expense.
Expect Obama to
bribe the union for votes turn the the strike into a campaign issue.

UK: British Mosque Leaders Agree To Marry Girl Of 12U.S. Rep Ellison: "Republicans Are “Party of Hate” For Banning Shariah Law in Platform"....
"Secret marriages: Some Muslim religious leaders consent to marry a girl of 12 if she consents - and her parents keep it a secret":
British Muslim mosque leaders are agreeing to carry out secret marriages with child brides as young as 12 in the UK, it emerged today.The above is an example of what Rep Ellison supports - Shariah law. Is it any surprise CAIR darling Rep Ellison slammed Repubs for "banning Shariah". The following is the section he opposes:
According to the newspaper, the reporter[undercover] was told by Imam Mohamed Kassamali that 'under sharia [Islamic law] there is no problem' in marrying a 12-year-old.
But while he declared Islamic Law dictated a girl should see 'her first sign of puberty at the house of her husband', he admitted they would all get in to trouble if she went to police saying she was forced into the marriage[...]
When approached by the newspaper he insisted he would only have carried out the ceremony if it was allowed under British law and if both parties had not been coerced into the marriage[..]
The current British law allows for Imans to carry out religious marriage ceremonies of consenting brides and grooms aged under 16 so long as they don't have sex until they are 16.
Under Sharia law both parties must to consent to the marriage and they can then live as man and wife and have sex irrespective of age.
But under British law, the legal age of consent is 16, so a husband could be prosecuted for rape if he has sex with a girl under that age - even if it is his wife.
We The People: A Restoration of Constitutional Government[#16 below...ed]For Ellison, it boils down to this:
Subjecting American citizens to foreign laws is inimical to the spirit of the Constitution. It is one reason we oppose U.S. participation in the International Criminal Court. There must be no use of foreign law by U.S. courts in interpreting our Constitution and laws. Nor should foreign sources of law be used in State courts’ adjudication of criminal or civil matters.

Haqqani Network to be Declared Terrorist Org
Well, it's about five years too late, but it's something. State Department Press Release:
Today, I [Sec. State Hilary Clinton] have sent a report to Congress saying that the Haqqani Network meets the statutory criteria of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) for designation as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO). This action meets the requirements of the Haqqani Network Terrorist Designation Act of 2012 (P.L. 112-168). Based on that assessment, I notified Congress of my intent to designate the Haqqani Network as an FTO [Foreign Terrorist Organization] under the INA. I also intend to designate the organization as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist entity under Executive Order 13224.Since we know the Pakistanis support the Haqqani network, doesn't this now make Pakistan a state sponsor of terror?
The consequences of these designations include a prohibition against knowingly providing material support or resources to, or engaging in other transactions with, the Haqqani Network, and the freezing of all property and interests in property of the organization that are in the United States, or come within the United States, or the control of U.S. persons. These actions follow a series of other steps that the U.S. government already has taken against the Haqqanis. The Department of State previously designated key Haqqani Network leaders under E.O. 13224, and the Department of the Treasury has designated other militants with ties to the Haqqanis under the same authority. We also continue our robust campaign of diplomatic, military, and intelligence pressure on the network, demonstrating the United States’ resolve to degrade the organization’s ability to execute violent attacks.
I take this action in the context of our overall strategy in Afghanistan, the five lines of effort that President Obama laid out when he was in Afghanistan in May: increasing the capacity of Afghan security forces to fight insurgents; transitioning to Afghan security lead; building an enduring partnership with Afghanistan; pursuing Afghan-led reconciliation; and putting together an international consensus to support peace and stability in the region. We will continue to work with both Afghanistan and Pakistan to move these efforts forward and build a more peaceful and secure future.
Eastwood Breaks His Silence: I May Have Irritated a Lot of Lefties....
Eastwood says his convention appearance was 'mission accomplished'Oh, the narcissist in chief didn't like it either:
AFTER A week as topic No. 1 in American politics, former Carmel Mayor Clint Eastwood said the outpouring of criticism from left-wing reporters and liberal politicians after his appearance at the Republican National Convention last Thursday night, followed by an avalanche of support on Twitter and in the blogosphere, is all the proof anybody needs that his 12-minute discourse achieved exactly what he intended it to.
“President Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people,” Eastwood told The Pine Cone this week. “Romney and Ryan would do a much better job running the country, and that’s what everybody needs to know. I may have irritated a lot of the lefties, but I was aiming for people in the middle.”
Breaking his silence
For five days after he thrilled or horrified the nation by talking to an empty chair representing Obama on the night Mitt Romney accepted the Republican nomination for president, Eastwood remained silent while pundits and critics debated whether his remarks, and the rambling way he made them, had helped or hurt Romney’s chances of winning in November.
But in a wide-ranging interview with The Pine Cone Tuesday from his home in Pebble Beach, he said he had conveyed the messages he wanted to convey, and that the spontaneous nature of his presentation was intentional, too.
“I had three points I wanted to make,” Eastwood said. “That not everybody in Hollywood is on the left, that Obama has broken a lot of the promises he made when he took office, and that the people should feel free to get rid of any politician who’s not doing a good job. But I didn’t make up my mind exactly what I was going to say until I said it.”[...]
Even into his 80s, Eastwood has an unprecedented record of success in Hollywood, and is still making two movies a year. He’s currently starring in “Trouble with the Curve,” and is about to direct a remake of “A Star is Born” — things he obviously couldn’t do if he were a befuddled senior citizen. To locals who know him, the idea that he is uninformed or senile is laughable.
Well played Mr Eastwood, well played.

Canada Breaks Off Relations w/ State Sponsor of Terror
And who would that be? Iran. This is big. Very big. From the Canadian Foreign Affairs Office:
Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird today issued the following statement:I have mixed feelings about diplomatic responses like this. On the one hand, it sends a positive signal about state sponsors of terror like Iran.
“Canada has closed its embassy in Iran, effective immediately, and declared personae non gratae all remaining Iranian diplomats in Canada.
“Canada’s position on the regime in Iran is well known. Canada views the Government of Iran as the most significant threat to global peace and security in the world today.
“The Iranian regime is providing increasing military assistance to the Assad regime; it refuses to comply with UN resolutions pertaining to its nuclear program; it routinely threatens the existence of Israel and engages in racist anti-Semitic rhetoric and incitement to genocide; it is among the world’s worst violators of human rights; and it shelters and materially supports terrorist groups, requiring the Government of Canada to formally list Iran as a state sponsor of terrorism under the Justice for Victims of Terrorism Act.
“Moreover, the Iranian regime has shown blatant disregard for the Vienna Convention and its guarantee of protection for diplomatic personnel. Under the circumstances, Canada can no longer maintain a diplomatic presence in Iran. Our diplomats serve Canada as civilians, and their safety is our number one priority.
“Diplomatic relations between Canada and Iran have been suspended. All Canadian diplomatic staff have left Iran, and Iranian diplomats in Ottawa have been instructed to leave within five days.
“Canadians in Iran seeking routine consular and passport services should contact the Embassy of Canada in Ankara, Turkey, or any other Canadian mission. Those who require urgent assistance should contact the Emergency Watch and Response Centre in Ottawa, by calling collect at 613-996-8885 or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Canada has updated its Travel Reports and Warnings to advise Canadians to avoid all travel to Iran. Canadians who have Iranian nationality are warned in particular that the Iranian regime does not recognize the principle of dual nationality. By doing so, Iran makes it virtually impossible for Government of Canada officials to provide consular assistance to Iranian-Canadians in difficulty.”
On the other hand, most HUMINT operations are run out of embassies. So, closing an embassy means that many intelligence assets are lost. It's why I've long argued that we should reestablish diplomatic relations with Iran.
Sure, this will embarrass Iran. But do you think Iran really cares that much? Do you think that such diplomatic pressure is really going to make a difference? I don't.
The only saving grace here is that I'm not sure that Canada has much of a foreign intelligence gathering operation going on in Iran as it is. So, closing the embassy probably won't hurt us on that front.
I certainly hope the Brits don't follow suit.
PETA Unhappy About Happy Cows

#Forward2012 Democrats' Controversial Draft Platform Passed Unanimously in Detroit in August
MFM will get right on this soon or something.:
Democrats are pretending that flaws in their party's platform, which excluded much pro-Israel language and any reference to God, are the result of "technical oversight." The truth is that the Democrats' draft platform was the result of a meticulous process handled by Newark mayor Cory Booker, and passed unanimously on August 11th.[The 11th was the day Romney announced Ryan as his VP pick...ed]No surprise Axelrod and Jarrett promptly threw Booker under the bus:
Booker insisted that the platform be perfected in all its details, asking the platform committee for "an all-encompassing resolution, ensuring that this is a grammatically tight document." No oversights were noted.
"There was almost no debate, and very little rancor," observed National Public Radio reporter Sonari Glinton, who covered the passage of the Democratic platform that weekend. He had to dig deep into history to find the last times that a party platform had caused significant controversy...[More...]

#Forward2012 Report: White House Pressured Gallup To Change It's Polling Methodology
Image via Sodahead
Internal emails between senior officials at The Gallup Organization, obtained by The Daily Caller, show senior Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod attempting to subtly intimidate the respected polling firm when its numbers were unfavorable to the president.Chicago thuggery at it's finest on display here.
After Gallup declined to change its polling methodology, Obama’s Department of Justice hit it with an unrelated lawsuit that appears damning on its face.
TheDC is withholding the identities of the Gallup officials to protect them from potential retaliation from Obama’s campaign and his administration.

First this guy gets a

Children Hardest Hit by bin Laden Raid
Pakistan is accusing six foreign aid workers of helping the CIA in the lead up to the bin Laden raid. And this time, it's the children who are literally hardest hit:
Pakistani authorities have ordered six foreigners working for the aid group Save the Children to leave the country, officials said Thursday, suggesting the aid workers had been helping a foreign spy agency operating on Pakistani soil....
The Pakistani authorities have previously alleged that Save the Children was linked to the CIA's search in Pakistan for Osama bin Laden, accusations the organization has long denied. Bin Laden was killed in a U.S. Navy SEAL raid in Pakistan in May 2011.

Obama Approved Removal Of Israel, God Language In Platform[Say what again Axelrod, Jarret?]
How Many Losers Does it Take to Open for Bill Clinton?
1, 2, 3....... 30, 31, 50.
I have to say that Bill Clinton gave a good speech last night. That's standard fare for Bill. If you can get past a few conflicts such as praising Obama for cutting taxes while condemning other tax cuts. If you can overlook a few logical disconnects Bill always gives a good speech. Its just what he does.
The number one thing that Clinton did right, he did not let anyone from the Obama administration touch his speech. Do any of you really believe that anyone in Obama's camp could have done as well? Of course you don't. Bill gives a good speech every time. Obama gave one really good speech many years ago.
The issue here is that Bill Clinton isn't running for President. Barack Obama is running for President. And despite Slick Willie's praise Obama is no Bill Clinton. Not even close.
Obama's wing of the Democrat party is totally different animal than what was described in Bill Clinton's alternate universe. Obama takes his support not from the center left or even the moderates. His wing is much more the Sandra Fluke type. While Bill talks positively about Republican and conservatives and co-operation, Sandra's hate and false choices betray what that far left wing really thinks.
She paints a false choice in which the executive office is a dictatorship. That your vote will decide which dictator you will live under. Because that's how the far left sees the Presidency, the power she wants you to fear giving to Mitt Romney is the same power they imagine in the hands of Barack Obama. Her choice is very much different from Bill Clinton's co-operation, in the her mind the other side are bigots, rapists murderers of women.
That's not the bill of goods that Clinton was selling last night. No matter how much lipstick Bill puts on the Obama Administration it does nothing for the stink emanating from this White House.
So tonight make sure you watch closely, I predict you'll feel that the best night of the Democratic convention fell on a Wednesday. In November you'll be voting on Obama's record, not Bill Clinton's record. You'll be voting on an agenda driven by the far left, not by centrists. You'll be voting not on the job that Bill Clinton did, but on who is most qualified to lead this nation forward.
I think what happened right after Bill Left the stage shows very well what you'll be voting on. It didn't take the incompetents in New Democratic Party 15 minutes to undo Mr. Clinton's 48 minutes of work.
This is not your Father's Democrat party.

Thief Clutches Fresh Bullet Wound, Tells Homeowner, 'Sorry, Sorry' ..
Homeowner: "Don't move bitch.
Well he didn't say bitch, but:
James Frye, a 30-year-old would-be burglar, thought he’d make a quick buck when he kicked open the back door to a house at 1:45 a.m. last Friday. Unfortunately for the robber, the home was occupied by Wallace Turner, his wife, his five-year-old daughter, and his gun. That is what you call a lethal combination, as dangerous as a can of gasoline and a match.The perp had to lay there in pain, a LOT of pain until the cops came.
When he heard the crash, Turner said he grabbed his gun and ran downstairs to investigate. You might think that waking up in the middle of the night to an obvious home invasion would terrify a lot of people, but Turner told WISHTV news that he wasn’t about to back down. “He wasn’t getting past me,” he said firmly. “My wife and daughter were behind me.”
Turner confronted the robber, and that’s when Frye made his second biggest mistake of the night: he lunged forward at Turner[...]
The robber learned his lesson – and quickly – when Turner shot twice, striking Frye in the leg. The burglar attempted to flee and made it into the back yard before collapsing.
Turner followed suit and held the robber at gunpoint while his wife phoned police.
Turner reported that the burglar repeatedly said “Sorry,” but Turner’s stone-cold response was “Don’t move.” ...
I love happy endings.
What Hatch Act?: Group: FAA Bosses Urged Workers To Vote Democrat
The Washington, D.C.-based group Cause of Action sent a letter Wednesday to the U.S. Department of Transportation's inspector general saying that in May at a mandatory staff meeting in Seattle, two senior FAA managers told employees that if Republicans win the presidential and congressional elections, the agency would face budget cuts. They allegedly said that if Democrats win, their budget would remain largely unchanged.FORWARD comrades!
One of the managers is alleged to have said that "Republican politicians wished to cut the budget of the FAA, while Democratic politicians intended to keep the FAA budget at the same or similar levels as in recent years. Any cuts in the FAA budget would lead to furloughs, job losses, and pay reductions among FAA employees," the Cause of Action complaint said.

Islamic Extremism @ Northeastern University
Watch the video to the end, there's some possible good news in there. However, if Abdullah Faaruuq has been fired by Northeastern there's no evidence of it on Google News. So, wishful thinking?
One of the interesting things here is Faaruuq as a nexus of terror in the greater Boston area. He personally knew al Qaeda member Aafia Siddiqui and al Qaeda media producer Tarek Mehanna. And as I've documented, Mehanna personally showed up at Siddiqui's trial. The Faaruuq connection helps explain Mehanna's personal concern.
I'd love to see more of these videos at other campuses. Like, say, my alma mater which produced such luminaries as Egypt's new Muslim Brotherhood President, Mohamed Morsi.

Assassination Attempt at Canadian Political Rally
An Anglophone, that's an English speaker, opens fire on a Francophone, French speaker, after she wins an election.
A masked gunman opened fire during a midnight victory rally for Quebec's new premier, killing one person and wounding another. The new premier, Pauline Marois of the separatist Parti Quebecois, was whisked off the stage by guards while giving her speech and uninjured.
Montreal police Cmdr. Ian Lafreniere said the 62-year-old gunman, who has not been identified, opened fire in the back of the hall while Marois was giving her victory speech to hundreds of supporters at the Metropolis auditorium. She had just declared her firm conviction that Quebec needs to be a sovereign country before she was pulled off the stage.
"What's going on?" Marois told her security detail as they grabbed her arms and took her off the stage during the celebration of her party's victory in Tuesday's provincial election.
The gunman then fled outside where he set a small fire before he was captured, police said.
Police said they didn't know the gunman's motive. As the suspect was being dragged toward the police cruiser, he was heard shouting in French, "The English are waking up!"
Marois returned to the stage after the shooting and asked the crowd to peacefully disperse and then seemed to finish her speech. She left the hall amid a tight cordon of provincial police bodyguards.
Baby Jesus wept.

Indicted NY State Senator Shirley Huntley(D) Ran On ACORN, Union Ticket
Known as an advocate of education equality for poor minorities, Democrat Shirley Huntley got hauled away in handcuffs last week and slapped with a 20-count indictment that includes felonies such as tampering with evidence and falsifying business records. Huntley stole nearly $30,000 she steered to a fake charity that claimed to help poor parents navigate the city’s school system, according to the indictment.Nothing to see here, MFM not interested, move along.
The 74-year-old state senator named her sham nonprofit Parent Workshop, according to the New York Attorney General’s office. The fake charity claimed to help low-income folks deal with the city’s huge and complicated public school system. Instead, authorities say, the money was pocketed by Huntley’s niece, who served as the group’s treasurer, and another man, who is listed as president.
It turns out that Huntley ran for office on both the Democratic and Working Families Party (WFP) tickets, according to New York State election results reviewed by Judicial Watch. This is relevant because the WFP has very close ties to the famously corrupt nonprofit with close ties to President Obama, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN). In fact, JW found that the WFP shares office space in Brooklyn with two ACORN spinoffs, New York Communities for Change (NYCC) and the Mutual Housing Association of New York.
When ACORN finally got busted for fraud, Congress cut its federal funding (Defund ACORN Act) and the group simply rebranded, creating a series of spinoffs operated by the same crooked people. Read all about it in a Judicial Watch special report born out of an extensive investigation...

Memory Hole: Obama Was For Sub Prime Mortgage Lending
Daily Caller via Ace: President Barack Obama was a pioneering contributor to the national subprime real estate bubble, and roughly half of the 186 African-American clients in his landmark 1995 mortgage discrimination lawsuit against Citibank have since gone bankrupt or received foreclosure notices.Additional Irony.
As few as 19 of those 186 clients still own homes with clean credit ratings, following a decade in which Obama and other progressives pushed banks to provide mortgages to poor African Americans.
The startling failure rate among Obama’s private sector clients was discovered during The Daily Caller’s review of previously unpublished court information from the lawsuit that a young Obama helmed as the lead plaintiff’s attorney.
Since the mortgage bubble burst, some of his former clients are calling for a policy reversal.Obviously Mr. Buchanan is rayyycyyyst and this is all Bush's fault.
“If you see some people don’t make enough money to afford the mortgage, why would you give them a loan?” asked Obama client John Buchanan. “There should be some type of regulation against giving people loans they can’t afford.”

“The beauty of New York City is a naked girl can win a nice suit,” Kuby quipped.
The civil-rights lawyer said cops never should have arrested West because “public nudity is legal in New York City as long as it’s done for purposes of a performance, exhibition or show.”

ICE Sex Scandal
Immigration and Customs Enforcement Chief of Staff Suzanne Barr resigned Saturday amid charges that she created a “frat house” atmosphere of boozing and sexual harassment at the agency.Given the quick resignation and that no voices in the administration have spoken in Suzanne Barr's defense, I believe a credible level of truth can be attributed to the allegations. (More….)
Barr’s decision to quit came two weeks after she took a leave of absence after new raunchy charges from a pair of ICE employees.
One claimed that a hard-drinking Barr, longtime aide to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, approached him at a U.S. diplomat’s home with an offer of oral sex.
A second worker detailed a 2009 meeting in the office of ICE Director John Morton where a leering Barr made inappropriate comments to a senior employee.
“You a sexy mothaf----,” she purportedly purred before looking at his crotch and asking, “How long is it anyway?”
Homeland Security Agent James Hayes filed a May lawsuit accusing Napolitano of hiring female friends who created a work environment that was hostile to men.
Hayes claimed Barr cleared out the offices of three male employees and moved the nameplates, computers, telephones and other items into a men's bathroom at ICE headquarters.

Hamas: No Internet Porn For You!
The Islamist Hamas movement that rules Gaza issued a new law this week that forces Gaza’s ten main internet providers to block all access to any websites with pornographic content.Tech savy Gazans will have no problem with this:
"This move is aimed at preserving our morals,” Osama Al-Eisawi, Minister of Communication and Information Technology in the Hamas government said in a statement. “Our social fabric needs protection and we are actually protecting Internet users in Gaza.”
Al-Eisawi said that any Internet provider that does not obey the law will be closed down. He explained that the law is an extension of the one passed in 2008, when the filters to block pornography were put in place, but individual users could still choose to lift them. Now, that choice is no longer available.
Gazans are considered to be especially Internet-savvy, some believe because it is so difficult for them to leave Gaza to travel abroad (they need permits from either Israel or Egypt to leave Gaza).Meh
"I would like to think of myself and others as grown-up adults who have the freedom of choice over whether to put filters on our Internet connection or not,” Adam Al-Agha, a student sitting in front of a computer screen at an Internet café told The Media Line. “Youth here are very advanced when it comes to technology --we can easily surpass this barrier using certain techniques.”

No Jerry Lewis, No Telethon
The booting of Jerry Lewis will not be televised.
Lewis has been all but erased from the telethon’s memory. This year’s show, airing the Sunday night before Labor Day, has been further downsized, to just three hours .... It is no longer called a telethon, but simply an “entertainment special,” and there will be no tote board tallying the donations.As common courtesy, I suggest that Jerry Lewis deserves more. Maybe a tip of the hat and a heartfelt farewell, as a minimum.
In the press announcement of the event, Jerry Lewis’s name is nowhere mentioned.
The story behind Lewis’s departure remains untold. But a few things have become clear in the year since the awkward public breakup. Jerry Lewis was dumped by the MDA, the charity he had been identified with since the 1950s. He’s still bitter about it. And the telethon is withering without him.[…]
The pain is not hard to discern. “This was a hurt man,” says Richard Belzer, the stand-up comic and Law and Order co-star, who has developed a close, almost father-son relationship with Lewis. Jerry’s goodbye appearance was scrapped after he and the charity could not agree on its format and length. Lewis wanted to do it live; the MDA floated several pre-taped options — “all insulting,” Belzer claims.

Palestinian Admits To Poisoning Raanana Family
Cleared for publication: A Palestinian man residing in the West Bank village of Beit Furik, near Nablus, was arrested for allegedly poisoning a Raanana family and a police volunteer in October 2011.Maybe they should give him a taste of his own medicine. A little spoonful will make the hate go away or something. But, that's just me.
Adnan Othman Nasaara, 46, has reportedly admitted to lacing food and drink in the Lerner family home with pesticides, because he "hates Jews."[...]
The case dates back to mid October last year, when the Lerners were the victims of a home invasion. Shortly after reporting the incident to the police, Eyal Lerner – having taken a drink form a juice bottle in the family's kitchen – collapsed and was hospitalized in serious condition.
His wife, Yifat, and the couple's toddler son were hospitalized shortly thereafter in moderate condition. All three exhibited the symptoms of poisoning.
Nasaara was arrested following a joint operation by the police and the IDF. During a search of his home, police found several hazardous pesticides.
According to the police, he admitted his involvement in the case and reenacted it for the investigators.

DNC2012: Giant Sand Sculpture Idolizing Obama Is No More Update: Not Quite
Gee, they worked so hard fixing it after the rain, too!
It was taken down for security reasons cuz a bomb could he hidden in it.
A temporary sand sculpture was slated to be the "ultimate welcome mat" for visitors during the Democratic National Convention has been scrapped for security reasons.Maybe shipping 15.5 tons of sand from Myrtle beach where local, state and federal monies were, and are. being used to repair the diminishing shoreline wasn't such a good idea.
The sculpture was in the process of being built in front of the Ritz-Carlton and was slated to be unveiled to the public on Friday.
Myrtle Beach area beaches are wider than ever, the result of a two-year renourishment project completed in 1998. It pumped almost five million cubic yards of new sand onto the shores. This $60 million enhancement plan was conducted by the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers with federal, state and local funding in cooperation with Myrtle Beach area municipalities and a national dredging company[...]
Since the original 1998 replenishment, the beach was replenished in 2009 as well in order to protect people and property from storm damage along the shore. According to the US Army Corps of Engineers, it is scheduled to continue to be replenished with Federal, state and local money through 2046.
Yeah, a security threat. Bad publicity for empty chair had nothing at all to do with it.
Update: Hmmm, WBTV (link to security thingy) appears to be incorrect. It was unveiled today[h/t Kevin]. It was, however, damaged from the rains today.

Help a Good Guy Save His Dog
John Sutz has been a long time supporter of The Jawa Report, so I'm passing along this video he made to help raise money to save his dog.
Video: Obama Wants 4 More Years for What?
This is a pretty good example of a grassroots produced campaign video. The producer ought to cut it down to a minute so we could get this thing some air time.
Pass the link around.
Clint Eastwood was a nice surprise at the RNC. I've always like him. But his appearance got me thinking about other Republican Hollywood celebrities and who might have been a great guest speaker for the convention.
What Republican celebrity would you have like to have seen at the RNC convention and why?
Here are my picks (in no particular order):
Adam Sandler - I don't care for his toilet humor and I don't think I've ever heard him make a political speech. But I think his appearance would have really appealed to the younger generation, so long as he left the fart jokes out.
Jon Voight - Never a huge fan as an actor, but he won some major points with me with his open letter to Barack Obama. I would have loved to have seen him update his letter at the RNC.
Chuck Norris - 'Nough said.
It is difficult to limit it to three. A few others I like include Kelsey Grammer,
James Earl Jones,* and The Rock.
*Updated to strike out James Earl Jones. I had forgotten about his comments on the Tea Party. Also, some in comments mentioned Gary Sinise. He definitely deserves to be at the top of the list. I had even considered him for one of my top three. But in the course of writing the post, his name just slipped my mind. Sorry, Gary.
Speaking of Gary Sinise, I watched his Lt. Dan Band documentary "For The Common Good" just last weekend. If you haven't seen it, you are missing something really great. Trailer below the fold.
