As part of the yearly Fabulous 50 Blog Award Winners, we get the "Geert Wilders Award for Best Anti-Jihad Blogger".
As always, we are honored.
Now, let's use this as an excuse to get hammered!
Ah, who are we kidding: when have we ever needed an excuse?
Putin Vows to Annihilate Terrorists
As much as I dislike this guy Putin, I can't say I disagree with his sentiment:
Russian President Vladimir Putin has vowed to fight "terrorists until their complete annihilation", in his first comment on two suicide attacks in the southern city of Volgograd.Our prayers are with the victims.
The attacks, on Sunday and Monday, claimed a total of 34 lives.
Thousands of police are patrolling public transport and checking traffic in the city following the attacks, which injured some 60 people....
Investigators believe a male suicide attacker bombed the trolleybus and are studying fragments of his body in an effort to identify him. Police sources say the attack on the station may also have been the work of a male bomber.
Identical shrapnel was used in the bombs, according to Vladimir Markin, spokesman for Russia's Investigative Committee.
Analysts say the prime suspect for the attack is likely to be Doku Umarov, a fugitive Islamist militant leader from Chechnya.
Meanwhile, the semi-official website of Doku Umarov's group calls the suicide bombers "martyrs", without ever making an official claim that they were behind the two incidents of mass murder.
PS -- here's a bit of free advice to Alash Udugov: you are one dumb sonofabitch if you think the FSB is going to respect Canadian sovereignty and leave you alone. Friends of Udogov in Toronto would do well to pass this message along.
Yes, I Might Just Beat You to Death w/ Your Own Machine Gun
I've seen this floating around and maybe we've run it here, but it's a classic like Raiders of the Lost Ark. You can watch it over and over again, without ever getting bored.
From Cpl. Clifford Wooldridge's Navy Cross citation:
As he crouched back behind the wall to reload, he saw the barrel of an enemy machine gun appear from around the wall. Without hesitation, he dropped his empty weapon and seized the machine gun barrel. He overwhelmed the enemy fighter in hand-to-hand combat, killing him with several blows to the head with the enemy’s own machine gun.Yes, we are that good.
All Work And No Play
And U.K. Guardian reporter Laurence Topham has proclaimed himself going mad (along with his craving for banana peanut butter milkshakes) in this rather morose video diary in which he discovers that that the adventure to the Antarctic to report on "climate change" has brutally backfired to the extent of causing him to go stir crazy.

New Interview With Family of Warren Weinstein
ABC News interview with the family of Warren Weinstein who is believed to be held by al Qaeda leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri...I just wanted to note that although ABC claims its the first time they've spoken they gave an interview several months ago to BBC.

Climate Change Scientists Trapped In Antarctica - Too Much Ice To Rescue
Global warming is the damnedest thing. Just when you think you've got a handle on it, it screws you over 180°.
The Aurora Australis has abandoned its first attempt to cut through the ice surrounding the stranded Akademik Shokalskiy in Antarctica after moving just two nautical miles.
About 6am, the Aurora's captain, Murray Doyle, began to manoeuvre the icebreaker through thick wedges of consolidated sea ice.
But by 9am [midday Sydney time], the master made the call to turn the ship around and move back into open water.
"The ice became too thick for us to penetrate. Some of the floes are up to two metres of ice with a metre of snow on top and very compact.
The video at the top is actual footage from one of the icebreakers. So far, at least three icebreaker ships have attempted and failed to reach the scientists.
The word "irony" must not be in the leftist vocabulary.

Mugger Refuses Outdated Cell Phone
A gun-toting mugger in Central Park was so disappointed by his victim's cheap flip phone that he handed it back.
"Once he saw my phone, he looked at it like, 'What the f–k is this?' and gave it back to me," recalled Kevin Cook, 25, of Brooklyn. [...]
The gunman, who threatened to kill Cooke and his friend, was wearing a dark-green winter coat and blue jeans.(Source)
It appears another person, with a much better & newer phone, captured the attempted robbery on camera. T-Mobile decided to use the footage for a commercial:
Bad Gun Control
Authorities say 16-year-old Clifton Chatman was among a group of muggers who surrounded the unnamed victim on the night of December 14 and demanded his cellphone.
One of the robbers pulled out a handgun while the others went through the victim’s belongings in search of other valuables.
Though the victim had complied with all his assailants’ demands, the teen holding the gun shot him anyway.
However, in a surprising twist of fate, the bullet fired at the man bounced off his face and reportedly struck Chatman, killing him on the spot.
Muslim Seleka Rebels Chop Off Children's Heads
Its a good thing these weren't Muslim children or else I'd have to withstand billions of graphic internet posts of their mutilated corpses talking about what a horiffic crime it was.
According to Unicef, at least at least two children have been beheaded, and one of them mutilated, in the violence that has gripped Bangui since early December.
"We are witnessing unprecedented levels of violence against children. More and more children are being recruited into armed groups, and they are also being directly targeted in atrocious revenge attacks," said Souleymane Diabate, Unicef representative in CAR. "Targeted attacks against children are a violation of international humanitarian and human rights law and must stop immediately. Concrete action is needed now to prevent violence against children."
Sandcrawler PSA: Making Fun of Islam Really Really Dangerous
So pick on the Christians, because they take stuff Jesus said about killing not people pretty seriously.
Don't expect any wacky Islam-based skits when Monty Python reunites in the new year.Next some Muslim will be offended and cut his head off anyway because he portrayed Islam as too violent to make fun of.
The British troupe is known for poking fun at all manner of subjects, including religion in films like Monty Python's Life of Brian. But Monty Python member Michael Palin says making even an innocent joke about Islam puts a comic in the cross-hairs, and he prefers to stay far, far away from that. Religion in general is a far more touchy subject than it was 30 years ago, he says, but one religion makes mockery a dangerous business.
Damned if you do, damned if you don't.
Cornhole Watch: Officer Vagina
Officer Vagina swears he's totally 100% notgay! And to prove it he fingers men up the ass for no reason.
This gentleman violently inserted his finger into dozens of victims' anuses. Sometimes his friends held guns to the victims' heads to force them to comply. Why was he sentenced to just two years in prison? Because he was an officer with the Milwaukee police department!Enjoy your stay in Wisconsin's finest pound you in the ass prison Officer Vagina I mean Vagnini, whatever.Vagnini put his bare hand down the man’s pants, touched his scrotum and inserted fingers into his anus, the complaint says.

Louisiana Taliban: Marry Young Woman Who Can Cook
If something works, it works. To intellectuals, however, theory takes precedence over practice and ideological abstractions like “equality” are more important than actual success and happiness. So in the wake of their failure to destroy “Duck Dynasty” because of patriarch Phil Robertson’s alleged homophobia, now the Left has its collective panties in a bunch because, in 2009, Robertson said this:Hell those are some pretty civilized Talibans right there. Here in Bumfuct when you pass a car in which Talibs have their 14 year old debutantes in the back its the parents looking and pointing you out as "A man in a tie with a car!"“Make sure that she can cook a meal, you need to eat some meals that she cooks, check that out,” he said. “Make sure she carries her Bible. That’ll save you a lot of trouble down the road. And if she picks your ducks, now, that’s a woman.”
The Duck Commander company founder added: “You got to marry these girls when they are about 15 or 16, they’ll pick your ducks. You need to check with mom and dad about that of course.”
As far as marrying, that first baby can come any time, the rest take about nine months.
An Experiement In Article Versus Video
I was surfing around my news sites when I came across this story about two teenagers in Honduras. It was tragic from the beginning. Both lived with their families in poverty scavenging for a few dollars a day.
They soon discover stealing is much more profitable than any legal work they could find:
Edwin Mejia didn't want to go out and steal that morning.
The $75 he and his buddy had made the day before from the stolen motorcycle felt like a fortune compared to the $5 a day he earned selling his mother's tortillas. The 15-year-old lay in bed inside the wooden one-room house he shared with his 10 brothers and sisters and told his partner, Eduardo Aguilera, that he wasn't in the mood. [...]
Honduras never developed the democratic institutions that would guarantee a rule of law. Instead, it is a largely lawless land where there are few choices for the poor, heroes are scarce, and violence is a given.
I knew as soon as I started reading this article was written to invoke sympathy for criminals more than for the victim. Sure, there are a few mentions that the victim was also struggling to provide for his family, but the entire gist of the story was about the struggling poor reluctantly turning to lawlessness and their subsequent mistreatment within the Honduras judicial system.
What came next would last four hours.
The two teenagers, visibly nervous, ditched the bike and started running in the middle of a five-lane highway, desperately trying to stop anyone to give them a ride. They ran past a Clarion Hotel, a Burger King and a McDonald's. At one point, traffic video caught them trying to jump a moving bus, pointing their gun at the driver, who did not stop. [...]
Two policemen finally caught the boys in a parking lot near the Marriott Hotel, in the same block as the presidential palace.
Police won't say what happened next, but according to public prosecutor Alexis Santos, 40, the police officers started beating both the boys, focusing on Eduardo, whom they thought had fired the gun.
I admit, the story slant got me. While I sympathized with the young police officer who lost his life, I also felt sympathy for these two teenagers, who found themselves caught up in a life and death struggle after making a series of bad decisions.
After all, how many of us also made bad choices as a teen? Not to the extreme of killing someone, but poor decisions that might have spiraled beyond our control in a world more violent than our own?
And Edwin didn't even want to be there that day. The article tells me that in the very first line. He was just trying to survive in a harsh world.
A few biased accounts and a liberal media easily sways the mind and manipulates the point of view. Notice the article refers to the teens by their first names, but to the victim by the last name. That isn't an accident. First names humanize and make it more personal. Last names are more detached.
Since the article mentions a viral video of the incident, I knew that only viewing that video would expose the true measure of severity of the crime committed by those impoverished teens, without invoking any emotions of the reporter. Only seeing the victim in life, rather than a secondary character on an internet page, would capture the horror of the crime committed.
The viral video was noticeably excluded from the AP's "Big Story" about the crime. So I did a little digging and found it. It is posted below the fold.
Your assignment: Read the linked story. Think about how you feel about the two teenage criminals AP wants you to view as victims. Then watch the video. Do you feel the same? Discuss in comments.
UPDATE: A somewhat related post I did a couple of weeks ago, only this one has a happy ending. The teens in the story above were trying to commit a similar crime:
UPDATE II: Found another case with a happy ending. (Warning: Graphic)
Another Bombing in Russia
nother deadly blast has struck the southern Russian city of Volgograd, killing at least 14 people and further highlighting Russia's security challenges as it readies to host the Winter Olympics in less than six weeks.
An explosion hit a trolleybus near a busy market during the morning rush hour Monday, a day after a blast at Volgograd's main train station killed 17 people and wounded at least 35 others.

Suicide Bomber Kills 16 In Russian Railway Station
(Hat Tip: Gateway Pundit)
(Reuters) - A female suicide bomber detonated explosives in the entrance hall of a Russian train station on Sunday, investigators said, killing at least 16 people in the second deadly attack within three days as the country prepares to host the Winter Olympics.
The attacker detonated a shrapnel-filled bomb in front of a metal detector just inside the main entrance of the station in Volgograd, a busy hub north of the violence-plagued North Caucasus region on Russia's southern fringe.
Now taking bets on what motivated this woman to kill 16 innocent people. And don't everyone say 'Islam' you Islamophobes!
Where's Rusty? Man Beats Off 15 Police Officers While Masturbating In A Bar
For some reason, I'm more impressed than offended...
A Beaverton man was arrested following a string of erratic outbursts that culminated in the suspect allegedly masturbating in a Salem roadhouse, officials said. [...]
By the time a Marion County deputy arrived on scene, Frey had moved from the bar to the bathroom, but reportedly had not stopped pleasuring himself.
Frey allegedly resisted arrest, forcing the deputy to zap the suspect with a Taser multiple times, officials said. The Taser had no effect on Frey, who then allegedly starting fighting with the deputy, officials said.
At least 15 police officers from Salem, Keizer and Marion County rushed to the bar and were eventually able to take the suspect into custody, officials said. (Source)

I really think I can identify with this woman. Bring home the beer. Period.
South Carolina authorities say a 44-year-old woman angry at a man for returning home without beer on Christmas beat and stabbed him with a ceramic squirrel.
The Charleston County Sheriff's office says in a report that deputies found a man covered with blood when they arrived at Helen Williams' North Charleston home early Wednesday. She told investigators the man fell and cut himself, but couldn't explain why her hands and clothes were also bloody.

New Details Released About 2000 Ramallah Lynching
As though what we already knew wasn't gruesome enough:
The Yediot Aharonot newspaper revealed Tuesday new details of the brutal murders of reservists Yossi Avrahami and Vadim Nurzhitz (z"l). The soldiers were lynched in Ramallah in October 2000.
The soldiers lost their way to their base on October 12, 2000, ending up in the Palestinian Authority (PA) controlled city of Ramallah by mistake. PA police forces took the two into custody.
Word reached local PA residents that undercover Israeli agents were being held in the building; some 1000 rioters reportedly gathered outside. The IDF declined to take action to rescue the soldiers; they were eventually stormed by the rioters.
One PA terrorist, Aziz Salha, got to the soldiers first, where he brutally murdered them - stabbing, beating, and dismembering them along with other rioters. He famously then stuck his bloodstained hands out of the window of the room where the two were held, eliciting cheers from the crowd.
The newly revealed details describe how the soldiers were beaten, stabbed, and strangled while in Palestinian Authority Police custody.
What followed was an orgy of savagery. The lifeless bodies of the soldiers were thrown out the window, where the mob below tore the bodies apart and ate the organs:
This is what separates the civilized man and the savage man. The civilized man abhors such barbarism; savages revel in it.
"Knockout" Thug Charged With Hate Crime
One of these "knockout" cowards get charged with a federal hate crime. We've seen dozens of videos of young black thugs hitting unsuspecting white victims, sometimes fatally.
So what makes this case unique?
In this case, the thug is white and the victim is black. That makes this a hate crime, while the others, apparently, are not to this Administration.
Federal authorities said Thursday they have arrested and charged a Texas man in connection with the "knockout game," accusing him of a hate crime for targeting a black man for a vicious street attack.
Most knockout victims that have appeared in news reports have been white, but the Justice Department said in this instance the victim was a 79-year-old black man, and stepped in with federal charges. [...]
According to Justice officials, Mr. Barrett recorded himself on his cellphone attacking the 79-year-old man, laughing and saying "Knockout" as he runs away.
The 79-year-old man had his jaw broken in the Nov. 24 attack.
"The plan is to see if I were to hit a black person, would this be nationally televised?" Mr. Barrett says in the video, according to the authorities.
Didn't count on additional federal charges, did you, Conrad?
Barret got what he deserved. But so should every other coward who plays this despicable game.

Imperial Good News! Three Arab Terrorists Get Droned in Pakistan
They're dead Jim!
A suspected American drone fired two missiles at a home in a northwestern tribal region of Pakistan bordering Afghanistan, killing at least three foreign militants, Pakistani intelligence officials said Thursday.
The U.S. authorities often target Taliban, al-Qaida and their Pakistani supporters in the country's tribal regions.
The latest strike took place just before midnight Wednesday in the village of Qutab Khel in North Waziristan and initial reports gathered from their agents in the field suggested the slain men were Arabs, the two intelligence officials said. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media.
In Saudi Arabia Man Faces Death For Liking Arab Christians
1000 years ago Saudi Arabians ran around chopping each other's heads off just like the head hunting savages of New Guinea.
An online activist in Saudi Arabia whose views angered religious conservatives is threatened with apostasy charges that could result in his execution, CNN reports.
Raif Badawi, former editor of the "Saudi Arabian Liberals" website, is already serving a seven-year jail sentence but a judge has now recommended that he be tried for apostasy, according to his wife.
...A year ago, at a hearing before Jeddah District Court, a judge reportedly ordered Badawi to "repent to God". When he refused, the judge referred the case to a higher court, recommending that it try Badawi for apostasy. Part of the evidence for Badawi's supposed apostasy was that he had pressed the "Like" button on a Facebook page for Arab Christians.
The threat of execution appeared to be lifted in January when a court rejected the apostasy charge, but it now appears to have been revived.
al-Qaeda Murders 26 Christians on Baby Jesus' Birthday
At least 26 people were killed and 38 others were wounded on Wednesday when a car bomb exploded in a parking lot near St. John’s Roman Catholic Church in a southern neighborhood of Baghdad, according to police and medical officials.Here is some video of the bombing of the Assyrian market.
The bomb detonated at the end of Christmas prayers as worshipers were leaving the church in Dora, the officials said.
The victims, most of them Christians, included women and children, as well as a number of police officers posted to guard the church.
A few minutes before the bombing, and barely half a mile away, a series of three other explosions in a market in an Assyrian Christian neighborhood killed 11 people and wounded 22.
We must warn that its very graphic.
Thanks to Pam, but I'd like to note that the Allahu Ackbars coming from the Muslims present who are helping the victims are not the same Allahu Ackbars! that the al-Qaeda terrorists said when they let off the bomb.
al-Qaeda are murderous Murtad who should pay the price for this.

Muslim State of Ohio Employee Pleads Guilty to Bribery (Le Bump-ed)
The former State Deputy Treasurer of Ohio, exposed on The Jawa Report as a man with deep ties to Islamist extremists and of giving out state contracts to his friends and relatives, has pleaded guilty to bribery charges:
As his wife quietly cried in the federal courtroom, a former high-ranking Ohio official admitted yesterday to a $3.2 million kickback scheme that occurred while he was the state’s deputy treasurer.That crying wife? She was one of the recipients int he kickback scheme.
Amer Ahmad, 39, now of Chicago, pleaded guilty to bribery and to conspiracy to commit bribery, wire fraud and money laundering, two of the eight counts against him.
Apparently he pleaded guilty to keep his wife out of jail. But wait, there's more:
The most recent was Columbus attorney Mohammed Noure Alo, 35, who pleaded guilty on Friday to wire fraud. As part of a plea agreement, a conspiracy charge against Alo will be dropped.And how did Ahmad know Alo? The two attended a mosque with extremist ties together.
Ahmad’s troubles might be just beginning.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Douglas W. Squires said an investigation continues into questions about a contract that the state treasurer’s office had during Ahmad’s tenure with State Street Bank in Boston. The bank hired Alo, an immigration lawyer, as its lobbyist shortly before it received $32 million in contracts from the treasurer’s office.
So, watch out for the cornholes guys!
Thanks to Barbarossa.

Happy Birthday Jesus of Nazareth **STICKY**
*Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.”
When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born.
So they said to him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it is written by the prophet:
‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,Then Herod, when he had secretly called the wise men, determined from them what time the star appeared. And he sent them to Bethlehem and said, “Go and search carefully for the young Child, and when you have found Him, bring back word to me, that I may come and worship Him also.”
Are not the least among the rulers of Judah;
For out of you shall come a Ruler
Who will shepherd My people Israel.
When they heard the king, they departed; and behold, the star which they had seen in the East went before them, till it came and stood over where the young Child was. When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy. And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
Then, being divinely warned in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed for their own country another way.
Now when they had departed, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream, saying, “Arise, take the young Child and His mother, flee to Egypt, and stay there until I bring you word; for Herod will seek the young Child to destroy Him.”
When he arose, he took the young Child and His mother by night and departed for Egypt, and was there until the death of Herod, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying, “Out of Egypt I called My Son.”
Then Herod, when he saw that he was deceived by the wise men, was exceedingly angry; and he sent forth and put to death all the male children who were in Bethlehem and in all its districts, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had determined from the wise men. Then was fulfilled what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying:
A voice was heard in Ramah,Now when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt, saying, “Arise, take the young Child and His mother, and go to the land of Israel, for those who sought the young Child’s life are dead.” Then he arose, took the young Child and His mother, and came into the land of Israel.
Lamentation, weeping, and great mourning,
Rachel weeping for her children,
Refusing to be comforted,
Because they are no more.
But when he heard that Archelaus was reigning over Judea instead of his father Herod, he was afraid to go there. And being warned by God in a dream, he turned aside into the region of Galilee. And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, “He shall be called a Nazarene.”
*I'm not going to publicize nor lend one word to our normal coverage of the ROP for this will be the Lord's day and I will not allow the Prince of Lies to interfere with the Good News!
Christ is born!

Al Qaeda Apologizes For Indiscriminate Killings
Al Qaeda apologized for killing Muslims:
Qassim Al-Raimi, the head of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, released a video on Sunday in which he admitted that the attack was not meant to kill people in the hospital or the mosque that are part of the Yemeni Ministry of Defense compound. He asserted the cause was one al Qaeda fighter gone astray, saying, "We confess to this mistake and fault. We offer our apologies and condolences to the families of the victims. We did not want your lost ones; we did not target them on purpose. This is not of our religion or our morals." The apology video was released after surveillance video of the attack was released by the Yemeni government.
Yet their "morals" don't have a problem with killing the kuffar...
Notice the apology only came after the video showing their cold blooded killings was released.

'Tis The Season - Salvation Army Toy Giveaway Turns Violent
Organizers of a Salvation Army holiday toy distribution on Pittsburgh’s North Side planned to bring in more staff today after a crowd turned unruly Friday. [...]
When the doors opened, officials say things turned chaotic.
People were pushing, shoving and cutting in front of others.
Such a misguided sense of entitlement.
You would think parents who couldn't afford toys for their children would be more grateful. You would think they would be willing to wait patiently for donated items. But no. They expect to receive the items as though they earned them.

Where's Rusty? Joining the 'Cyber-Militia'
It's kind of a good idea, in theory. If we're ever under a real cyber-attack -- and by 'real' here, I mean large scale -- then you call up the 'cyber-militia' to counter it. I'll be first in line to volunteer. Howie, too. Provided the cyber-attack is connected to Kate Upton nude video containing malicious phishing code. He'd gladly spend hours working on that.
Part of the funding bill passed by Congress this week includes provisions that call for the Department of Defense to formally consider the creation of a part-time civilian force to assist in times of cyberattacks...Yeah, I'm not sure every state needs a Guard Unit dedicated to countering cyber-attacks. Isn't that kind of the whole idea behind cyber-threats? That they're non-spatially related? So, this seems like Congress just trying to get more of those fat DOD dollars directed homeward.
Some countries already have volunteer civilian "cyber militias"—Estonia, for example, has a civilian cyber reserve that it put together after cyberattacks on the country's national Internet infrastructure that appeared to originate from Russia. Maryland has created a cyberwarfare unit as part of its Air National Guard. But the Defense Department has resisted previous efforts by members of Congress to establish National Guard "Cyber and Computer Network Incident Response Teams" in every state.
But still, I like the idea in general. I'd even go farther. Why not an army of cyber-privateers?
Oh, thanks to @switch_d
More Somali 'Freedom Fighters' Arrested Trying to Blow up Soccer Game
On the one hand, it's soccer. On the other hand, there might be some innocent people in the stadium. Like, a devoted wife. Or a gay guy who's there to support his 'partner'. Or the mom of one of the players who, despite going to bed at night wondering where she went wrong, is determined to put a brave face on the whole thing:
Ethiopian police have arrested five more people suspected of plotting suicide bombings during Ethiopia's World Cup qualifying match against Nigeria in October, security officials said on Thursday.As much as we hate soccer, there has to be a better way than killing people to stop this evil sport!
The planned attack failed when two Somali suicide bombers accidentally blew themselves up a few kilometers (miles) from Addis Ababa Stadium where soccer fans were gathering.
The men who plotted the attack were all Somali nationals belonging to the militant Islamist group al Shabaab

Obamacare Heroin Hits The Streets
It costs more than regular heroin, it's weaker than regular heroin with lots of extra additives you don't want, it's nearly impossible to contact the dealer to make a purchase, and if you don't buy it, the drug dealer comes to your house and charges you a fine:
Massachusetts State Police on Friday confiscated 1,250 bags of heroin during a traffic stop -- and many of the bags were labeled "Obama care." [...]

Drowning in Oil?
The lakes and seas on Saturn's largest moon Titan hold massive amounts of liquid hydrocarbons — 40 times more than are found in Earth's proven oil reserves, new observations by NASA's Cassini spacecraft suggest.Its a bit hard to get to, but think of all that dirty dirty money.
Titan, which is about 1.5 times bigger than Earth's moon, harbors about 2,000 cubic miles (9,000 cubic kilometers) of liquid methane and ethane on its frigid surface, researchers announced last week. The hydrocarbons are almost all contained in an area near Titan's north pole that's just 660,000 square miles (1.62 million kilometers) in size, a region slightly larger than Alaska.
Cornhole Watch: Oded Orbac Needs 25 Year Supply of Astroglide
Oded Orbach, one of two U.S. citizens among a group of men accused in 2011 of trying to sell weapons to people they thought were Taliban militants, was sentenced to 25 years in prison on Wednesday in Manhattan federal court.He was willing to give weapons to kill US soldiers in exchange for heroin.
Orbach, 55, and former U.S. Army translator Alwar Pouryan, the other U.S. citizen netted in a sting, were convicted in April of conspiring to provide material support to terrorists and conspiring to acquire anti-aircraft missiles.
Sucks to be him.
Indian Muslim Cleric Issues Fatwa Against Gays and Sluts GLAAD Silent
Muslim cleric issues fatwa calling for homosexuals to be burnt alive, pushed from high wall or stoned.But its just their culture to burn gays alive, racists!
But gay activists everywhere know that Phil Robertson is the real threat.
The cleric went on to state that a slut, or woman in a forbidden sexual relationship outside of marriage has no rights or claims that that a wife would have in regards to property or child custody.
I mean even less rights than a wife has now which are few. Women seldom win custody or support under Islamic common law.
al-Karama Founder is Irhabi
Somehow I don't find it shocking that those advocating for terrorists "human rights" turn out to be, you know, terrorists. Not in the least.
Daily Beast: The U.S. government this week said the head of a human-rights organization working on behalf of Islamist political prisoners was also a financier for al Qaeda.The Treasury Department's designation is here.
Most of the world knows Abdul Rahman Omeir al-Naimi as a Qatari history professor and human-rights activist. The Swiss-based organization he founded, known as al-Karama from the Arab word for dignity, has worked closely with the United Nations and American human rights groups, most notably Human Rights Watch.
According to the U.S. government, however, al-Naimi is also a major financier of al Qaeda. On Wednesday, the Treasury Department issued a designation of al-Naimi that said he oversaw the transfer of hundreds of thousands of dollars to al Qaeda and its affiliates in Iraq, Somalia, Syria, and Yemen over the last 11 years. In 2013, the designation says, al-Naimi ordered the transfer of nearly $600,000 to al Qaeda via the group’s representative in Syria.

Go "Like" the facebook page "Boycott A&E" if you support Phil's right to freedom of expression. You don't have to necessarily support his views, but only his right to speak about his religious beliefs without being persecuted.
BTW, another way to show your support is to purchase Duck Commander products and NOT the Duck Dynasty products. The Robertson family owns the rights to Duck Commander. A&E owns Duck Dynasty.
Muslim Patrol Assigned to Cornhole Watch
"Vigilantes implementing Islam upon your necks:" that's what the thugs themselves call their actions. Proudly.Three members of a so-called 'Muslim Patrol' were today jailed at the Old Bailey for repeatedly trying to enforce Sharia law in East London.
Jordan Horner and another Islamic extremist told one couple they could not hold hands while walking down the street, because it was in a 'Muslim area'.
The radicals also attacked a group of men drinking in the road, and told a woman she would face 'hell fire' because of the way she was dressed.
Horner, 19, Ricardo MacFarlane, 36, and a 23-year-old man who cannot be named for legal reasons were sentenced to 68 weeks, 12 months and 24 weeks in prison respectively.
Good News! al-Qaeda Torturing Syrians
They are slowly sawing off people heads with knives for being Christian Alawite or just the wrong kind of Muslim, but hey at least they aren't water-boarding.
Amnesty International says that an Al-Qaeda–linked rebel group operating in Syria uses torture, flogging, and summary killings in secret prisons.Torture and murder its only wrong when the west does it and Allah (the most gracious the most merciful) knows best.
In an 18-page report issued on December 19, Amnesty International identified seven detention facilities it says are run by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) in the northern provinces of Aleppo and Al-Raqqa.
Philip Luther, Amnesty International's director for the Middle East and North Africa, says that those abducted by the ISIS "include children as young as eight who are held together with adults."
Amnesty has called on the international community "to take concrete steps to block the flow of arms and other support to [ISIS] and other armed groups implicated in committing war crimes."
Buy Them All Tickets: UK Jihadi Killed Fighting for al Qaeda in Syria
At this rate of kill off maybe the best policy option is to buy them all tickets to Turkey, greet them at the airport, and then escort them to the Syrian border?
Ifthekar Jaman, 23, died at the weekend in a battlefield clash 2,000 miles from his Hampshire home.Good riddance.
He was one of an estimated 350 British men to have taken up arms with Al Qaeda-linked groups in Syria – where they are known as British Kataa’ib, meaning British Brigade.
Speaking a month ago, Jaman declared he was ready to die as a martyr, vowing: ‘I don’t plan to come back. Life is for the hereafter… it’s an eternal paradise so the sacrifice is small.’...
He joined ISIL (the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant), a notorious group of Al Qaeda extremists waging jihad against the Syrian government.
The last known pictures of him, circulated online at the start of this month, show Jaman and another Briton armed with AK-47 assault rifles and stopping vehicles at a dust-blown checkpoint.
Soldiers for Allah Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale Are Convicted in Savage Murder of British Soldier
It didn’t take long for a British jury to decide on guilt for Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale, but then again, neither defendant denied murdering and nearly beheading Lee Rigby. Both pleaded not guilty, but claimed that the horrendous murder — which took 13 minutes to complete — was an act of war, not a crime. The jury felt differently:They will face life in prison in the UK but their heads should be up at the Tower of London right now. Right next to Anjem Choudary's.

Why We're Taking a Second Look at Assad
Eh, it could be worse:
Mere hours later, the engineer and 20 other members of the Syrian opposition -- doctors, city council members and activists -- escaped from Raqqa into Turkey. They weren't fleeing Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime, but a new and terrible power that has no face and goes by many names. The official name of this al-Qaida branch, which has broken away from Osama Bin Laden's successors, is the "Islamic State of Iraq and Syria" (ISIS). "Daaisch" is the most common abbreviation of the group's name in Syria. "But we call them the Army of Masks," says Basil, the engineer who fled the country, "because their men rarely show their faces. They dress in black, with their faces covered."The article goes on to repeat the party line that it's our fault that al Qaeda is growing so rapidly in Syria because had we just sent arms to the "moderates" then al Qaeda wouldn't be receiving so much support.
In addition to civil rights activist Halaibna, the group's thugs have kidnapped hundreds of others in Raqqa, where Assad's army was driven out back in March. The jihadists seized the chair of the city council, the heads of the civilian opposition, an Italian Jesuit and six European journalists. Anyone who opposes the ISIS fighters, or who is simply considered an unbeliever, disappears.
ISIS maintains four prisons for holding its hostages in this area alone. And Raqqa was only the beginning. In the last four months, the jihadist group, which was still essentially unknown in Syria at the start of this year, has seized control of several cities, as well as strategically important roads, oil fields and granaries.
And to that I say, bah-humbug!
We actually bombed in Libya, and how'd that work out for us? No, it's not our fault that these people can't get their sh*t together. They've never had it together, and no matter what we do they're never going to get their sh*t together.
Thanks to Lou.
When Iranian Terror Supporting Proxies Are Looking Like the Best Alternative
Wow, when Iran's Hezbollah supporting proxy in Syria is looking like the least-worst viable option, you know you're cause is sunk:
Western nations have indicated to the Syrian opposition that peace talks next month may not lead to the removal of President Bashar al-Assad and that his Alawite minority will remain key in any transitional administration, opposition sources said.....Lest we forget just how bad the Baathist regime in Syria really is, last night I watched watched the NRA's Life of Duty special Remembering Beirut. The bombing of the US Marine Barracks killed 241 US Servicemen.
"Our Western friends made it clear in London that Assad cannot be allowed to go now because they think chaos and an Islamist militant takeover would ensue," said one senior member of the Coalition who is close to officials from Saudi Arabia.
Noting the possibility of Assad holding a presidential election when his term formally ends next year, the Coalition member added: "Some do not even seem to mind if he runs again next year, forgetting he gassed his own people."
Yeah, Assad's regime supports these guys and Hezbollah fighters are actively participating on the war in Syria today. So, if we think that is the best option? I think it's not just the attrocities committed by the al Qaeda types, it's also that the opposition is so divided now that they spend just as much time killing each other as they do Assad's thugs. They keep this up it's not going to matter what a bunch of diplomats at a peace conference say, they're going to lose.

GLAAD Slams Saul of Tarsus
GLAAD apparently has a problem with Paul, as he has been is known since being struck blind on the road to Damascus by an unknown force calling itself Jesus in an attempt to forcibly convert him to Christianity .
Paul and his family claim to be Christian, but Pails’s lies about an entire community fly in the face of what true Christians believe,” said spokesperson Wilson Cruz. “He clearly knows nothing about gay people....The part that got GLAAD all riled up.
Now therefore, it is already an utter failure for you that you go to law against one another. Why do you not rather accept wrong? Why do you not rather let yourselves be cheated? 8 No, you yourselves do wrong and cheat, and you do these things to your brethren! 9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals,[a] nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.Heaven, it doesn't really matter who you are, you ain't getting in.
So if you are lucky enough to find grace and get to heaven every fornicator idolator, adulterer, homosexual, sodomite, thief, drunkard, dope fiend, reviler, or extortioner you meet will all have gotten there the same way you did, by grace.
So my advice, note *murderers missed the list and pray that by the grace of God you find yourself among the group of fine human beings listed above.
*No, murderers aren't listed, yet I find myself conflicted on that because Saul was nothing before his conversion if not an efficient killer of Christians.
Lawyer For Lee Rigby's Murderer Slobbers: Killer is 'Upright, Honorable, Sincere, With Absolute Honesty And Moral Conviction'
Because how could running over and attempting to behead an injured, defenseless human be anything other than honorable?
Michael Adebolajo, 28, and his friend Michael Adebowale, 22, hacked the 25 year-old soldier to death after running him over near Woolwich Barracks in south London.
Jurors have heard Adebolajo attempted to decapitate him with a meat cleaver before dragging his mutilated body in front of members of the public.
David Gottlieb, defending Adebolajo, emotionally told the jury: 'Here is a man who killed a British soldier.'
'He is a British citizen and he has shown himself to be honest, upright and honourable.
His voice cracked and he appeared to sob as he added: 'He is someone who is totally sincere, a man of absolute honesty and moral conviction.'
'The description of callous, barbaric, mutilating a body do not fit my client, it's not consistent with being a murderer.'

Syrian Islamic Front Inexplicably Refuses Talks With the West
The U.S. ambassador to Damascus has said a newly formed Islamist alliance in war-torn Syria has refused to meet with American officials, in an interview aired Wednesday on Al Arabiya News Channel.I mean it could be that maybe they are under the influence of al-Qaeda? Or the primary exporter of Wahhabism Saudi Arabia? Or both?
“The Islamic Front has refused to sit with us without giving any reason,” Robert Ford said, just one day after U.S. State Secretary John Kerry spoke of a “possible” meeting with Syria’s biggest opposition alliance
“We are ready to sit with them because we talk to all parties and political groups in Syria,” Ford told Al Arabiya, speaking in Arabic.
Just repeat to yourself Islam is a Religion of Peace and continue rocking quietly in the corner while your government ponders our next attempt at peace through dialogue.

The flood of North American crude oil is set to become a deluge as Mexico dismantles a 75-year-old barrier to foreign investment in its oil fields.Thanks to American Thinker for the pick me up.
Plagued by almost a decade of slumping output that has degraded Mexico’s take from a $100-a-barrel oil market, President Enrique Pena Nieto is seeking an end to the state monopoly over one of the biggest crude resources in the Western Hemisphere. The doubling in Mexican oil output that Citigroup Inc. said may result from inviting international explorers to drill would be equivalent to adding another Nigeria to world supply, or about 2.5 million barrels a day.

6 US Troops Killed in Copter Crash in A-Stan, Taliban Claim they Shot it Down
Six U.S. troops were killed in a helicopter crash on Tuesday in southern Afghanistan.And on cue, the Taliban take credit:
Other media reported the troops were NATO members; Fox News confirmed the troops were part of the NATO force but were Americans.
“The cause of the crash is under investigation,” NATO said in a statement reported by Fox News. “However, initial reporting indicates there was no enemy activity in the area at the time”
Military officials suspect engine failure is the cause of the crash, CNN reported.
Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate have shot down the helicopter of foreign troops in Shahjoi district today, according to officials reporting from southern Zabul province.Don't put too much faith in the Taliban's claim. They always claim helicopter crashes are the result of the 'mujahideen'.
The attack took place at around 03:00 pm local time today as the helicopter was flying over Ibraheem Khelo area at a low altitude, causing the chopper to violently plummet onto the ground in a ball of fire which killed all 8 invaders and crew onboard.
Syrian Rebels Burning People In Ovens
This is the side the Obama Administration (along with a few RINOs) has chosen to support:
"The situation was terrible - with killing, atrocities, and fear as the background. Unidentified armed men came into town, but it was obvious that they were Jabhat al-Nusra militants," Muhammad Al-Said said.
"The worst crime they committed was that they toasted people in ovens used to bake bread when those people came to buy it. They kidnapped and beat up many," he added.
According to Al-Said, the rebels committed the atrocities so they could place blame on government forces.
But the resident said that Adra citizens are "waiting for Syrian troops to save us from the terrorists, who came from other countries."
"Never again" is becoming "once again" under Islamic aggression. And sadly, the West is doing little, if anything, to address it.
Chessler: To Go From Unknown Group to Media Star, Bash Israel
Why did the unnoticed, far-left and very minor American Academic Association pick on Israel? Is there a better way to get attention?Well there is probably, but it involves explosives.
The American Studies Association - the organization which just voted to boycott Israeli academics and cultural institutions - did so via a grand total of 1,252 votes. Thus, two-thirds of the voters, or only 826 academics voted to boycott their Israeli counterparts - no, make that their Israeli superiors. The vote represents 21% of all eligible voting members and 17% of their total membership of 5,000.
This group launched no boycotts against Cuba, China, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Somalia,Pakistan, Iran, or Afghanistan - all places where dissent is a capital crime and where gender and religious apartheid are practiced; nor did they boycott Sudan, where anti-black slavery is openly practiced.
...But why is she - and her cohort - picking on Israel? Well, is there a better or quicker way of getting some attention?

Over 8500 Jihadi Moths to Syrian Flame
Individuals from Middle Eastern countries continue to represent the majority of foreign fighters (around 70 per cent). We estimate that up to 6,774 non-Syrian Arabs and an additional 523 non-Arabs from the (wider) region have gone to Syria.Read the rest.
The five countries with the largest numbers of foreign fighters in Syria are all part of the Middle East: Jordan is the single biggest contributor (up to 2,089), followed by Saudi Arabia (1,016), Tunisia (970), Lebanon (890), and Libya (556).
It must be noted, however, that the Middle Eastern figures are less reliable than those for Western Europe, as governments are less forthcoming with official estimates and there is less reporting of individual cases.
The detailed breakdown is as follows:
Once they Jihadists arrive in Syria they are caught in an Iranian meat grinder, why just today Iran claims that two senior al-Nusra front commanders were eliminated.
Two commanders of the Al-Nusra Front, namely Abu Hamzeh and Abu Ahmad Al-Mohajer, have been killed in fierce clashes in the past two days.Of course whenever al-Nusra is winning it the will of Allah, I wonder what they call it when they lose?
Ebrahim al-Mesri nicknamed Abu Zayd, commander of Sarih al-Modahemeh armed group, was killed in Jassem region in Daraa.
#Syria: Al-Sha'ar #Aleppo this morning, devastated with aerial bombing by the baathist regime.Oh I see, its a crime when someone else does it.
If this is not a classified as a crime against the people then what is a crime against the people?
How many must be martyred before it is classified as a crime?
How many must be made refugees before it is classified as a crime?
How many must be made homeless before it is classified as a crime?
The rulers of the muslim world have no honour that is clear by their inaction from doing what is required of them as rulers of muslim armies.

He's Da Champ! (Update Fatwas Issued)
The sign language interpreter widely ridiculed for his performance at the Nelson Mandela memorial stands by his work.So he seems pretty confident? I wonder how he got into this line of charades?
Thamsanqa Jantjie said Thursday that he is a fully qualified interpreter and has been trusted in the past with other big events.
"It has been many years I have been doing this job" he told CNN. "My portfolio shows that I have been a champion of what I have been doing."
He said he had been drawn to the job of interpreting because he was disabled.See his interpretations are not wrong its just that everyone else's interpretations of his interpretations are wrong.
"I am suffering from schizophrenia, which is controllable. I am under treatment," Jantjie said.

Tolerance: I Do Not Think It Means What Islam Thinks It Means
But remember, we are the 'Islamophobes' for daring to challenge such a brutal ideology.
A 72-year-old British doctor is in prison in Pakistan for "posing as a Muslim", charges that reveal an escalating ideological fight that often spills over into violence, Reuters reported.
Masood Ahmad is a quiet, reserved widower who returned to Pakistan to open a pharmacy in 1982 after decades of working in London to pay his children's school fees, his family said.
He is also an Ahmadi, a sect that consider themselves Muslim but believe in a prophet after Mohammed. A 1984 Pakistani law declared them non-Muslims, and Ahmadis can be jailed for three years for posing as a Muslim or outraging Muslims' feelings. [...]
Ahmad was arrested in Pakistan's eastern city of Lahore last month when two men posing as patients questioned him about his faith and used mobile phones to secretly record him reading a verse from the Koran.
"He (the patient) said you are like a father to me, please help me with some questions," said the doctor's older brother, Nasir Ahmad. "When (my brother) answered, they began beating him and dragged him outside by his neck."
Last year 20 cases against Ahmadis were registered, up from 10 cases in 2009. A bank clerk was arrested for wearing a ring with a Koranic verse and an entire family was charged for writing a Muslim greeting on a wedding invitation. (Source)

Moderate Muslim Suicide Bomber Blows Up Muslim Terrorists To Save Family Honor
Allah may have a bit to trouble sorting these victims. Who gets to go to paradise, the Muslims waging jihad in his name or the Muslim father defending his family honor? Who goes to hell, the man who killed Allah's soldiers or the terrorists killing peaceful Muslims?
Nazar Hassan, an engineer from the Syrian city of Adra, decided to detonate four grenades in case terrorists gained access to his home, Al-Alam reported Saturday.
Terrorists broke into the house and found Hassan and his wife along with their four children.
That is when Hassan decided to blow up himself along with his wife and children in an apparent bid to preserve the honor of his family, while also killing eight Takfiri terrorists in the process.

A Lie So Big, It Had to Come from the BBC
Get this, the guy who says he was a fan of Osama bin Laden, who was inspired to jihad by the "Revolution Muslim" website, and who was just caught trying (and failing) to blow up the Wichita, KA airport ......:
Mr Loewen, an aviation technician, does not appear to have been affiliated with any religious group, police said.Bwahahahahaaaa!!!
Seriously, when "YALAAAAAAAAAAAA!" dropped this in the comments of that last post I thought it must have been a joke. So I went to the BBC website to check out the claim, thinking, surely, this was one of those things in the headlines that was misleading and then when you got to the story it turns out the whole thing is how this guy, Terry Lee Loewen, was radicalized online and wanted to become a jihadi.
Nope. Not a word.
But it's worse than that. We've come to expect silence when it comes to the ROP, but this is worse than silence: it's outright propaganda.
They used to just mislead by omitting key information: lies of omission.
Lies of omission lend themselves to plausible deniability. Oh, did we fail to mention the guy was screaming Allahu akbar! as he tried to blow himself up? Oops, sorry.
But this is just out and out misleading the readers with false information.
I've went ahead and archived the post, lest sometime in the next hour that sentence suddenly disappears and a new one appears about how this guy was a big Osama bin Laden fan and had sent money to Younes Abdullah Muhammad's grieving wife.
Feds disrupt plot to bomb Wichita Airport (UPDATED: Radicalized by Revolution Muslim website)
Hi, I'm Terry. I like al Qaeda. Beans and frank!
A 58-year-old airport worker was charged Friday with allegedly planning a suicide bombing at a passenger terminal at the Wichita Mid-Continent Airport in Kansas.
The suspect, Terry Lee Loewen, an avionics technician who lives in Wichita, was arrested earlier in the day as he attempted to use his security pass to drive a vehicle that he thought contained explosives onto the tarmac at the airport, law enforcement officials said at a news conference in Wichita. In fact, the car contained only dummy explosives.
U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said Loewen spent months developing a plan to drive a carload of explosives to the airport terminal and that he was determined to trigger the bomb himself and die in the blast.
Loewen, who is white, became radicalized after reading extremist Islamic material on the Internet, Grissom said.

Here's the federal complaint filed against the guy.
UPDATE II: Oh, this is ripe: he was a fanboy of Revolution Muslim and was sending money to Jess "Younes Abdullah Muhammad" Morton's family. From pg. 7 of the complaint:
I have considered supporting some of our brothers and sisters in prison, and have been sending money to the family of Younnus Abdullah Muhammad, one of the founder [sic] of the Revolution Muslim website, which is the first website that really helped me understand what obedience to Allah(swt) was. He is doing eleven and a half years over the whole South Park fiasco; isn't democracy great?Also great? Your cornhole being violated by Younes Abdullah?

Jamaat-e-Islami Leader Executed in Banglesh
Bangladesh has executed the Islamist leader Abdul Kader Mullah, convicted of atrocities in the 1971 war of independence with Pakistan.He was convicted in the systematic rape in support of Pakistani rule as well as the murder of 344 non-Muslims.
He is the first person convicted by Bangladesh's International Crimes Tribunal (ICT) to be executed.
The ICT was set up in 2010 to investigate abuses committed during the 1971 conflict, in which some estimate three million people were killed.
Mullah was a senior leader of the Jamaat-e-Islami party.

"He fled as a result of the Islamic Front taking over his headquarters," a senior US official said.

Oregon Spends $300 Million To Sign Up 44 People For Obamacare
In case you are wondering, that's over $6.8 million per person. It would have been cheaper for Oregon taxpayers just to set up a million dollar trust fund to cover health insurance premiums for six times as many people.
From Washington Examiner:
Oregon, once touted as a model for President Obama's health care law, signed up just 44 people for insurance through November, despite spending more than $300 million on its state-based exchange.
The state’s exchange had the fewest sign-ups in the nation, according to a new report today by the Department of Health and Human Services.

The Star-Telegram reports that the families of those who died expressed their anger as Ethan Couch, 16, of Texas, escaped a possible 20 year prison sentence and instead was handed 10 years of probation.
Muslims Accuse Food Charity Of Racism
A Norwegian food charity is being accused of racism for serving Norwegian food to Muslim refugees. The ungrateful Muslim asylum seekers are demanding that the charity provide them with Middle Eastern foods:
You might think that the Muslims who have been evacuated from war-torn Syria would appreciate the kindness of the people of Norway. Think again. In the small Norwegian town of Hønefoss, a group of about twenty-five of them, protested their food. It's poison and they're not getting enough.
They want their Middle Eastern food, not what the Norwegians eat. They march through the town with "Hunger Strike" scribbled on their blue cafeteria trays, accusing the Norwegians of racism.

Another Way Obamacare Will Cost You
Aside from the obvious premium increases and lost hours, you'll be spending more in property taxes to pay for Obamacare:
A Missouri school district faces a $150,000 bill for Obamacare, according to a report on KMIZ-MO:
"The Affordable Care Act could cost the Jefferson City public schools more than a $150,000," said the news anchor.
"This came to light at last night's board meeting when district officials told board members they would have to pay health insurance for substitute teachers," says the other anchor.

Alive Saudi Woman Declared Dead; Sent To Morgue
A Saudi woman was sent to the hospital morgue after doctors erroneously declared her dead:
"I was declared dead at 11.45am after a Caesarian operation."
That was not from a horror movie, but an extract from of a newspaper interview with a Saudi woman who claims she was pronounced dead by doctors and locked in a corpse-filled morgue for two hours.
The macabre incident took place nearly two years ago, but the woman is still locked in a court battle against Jahra hospital in Kuwait City.
Things like this happen in many societies, most often in third world countries without modern medical technology. But in an Islamic society, maybe this has something to do with it:
Saudi Arabia has told its hospitals to prevent male doctors from checking dead women following a demand by the Gulf Kingdom's top Islamic scholar.
Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al Shaikh, Saudi Arabia's grand Mufti, sent a letter to the health ministry asking it to ensure male doctors at all hospitals in the country of 29 million people will not be allowed to check dead women either in medical or criminal cases.
"The Mufti made clear that the body of a woman whether alive or dead must be respected and should not be seen by males," Arar newspaper said.
Because respecting her body is much more important than saving her life.
Bwahahahahaha: Dan Rather Still Claiming His Story was "Fake, but True"
I often wonder what it would be like to live in the mind of Dan Rather. Are there unicorns there?
“With our story, the one that led to our difficulty, no question the story was true. What the complaint… was ‘Okay, your story was true, but where you got to the truth was flawed.’”Ha ha ha, by "flawed" he means the documents used to "prove" Bush hadn't fulfilled his National Guard obligations were obvious forgeries.
Your media elite: everything we say is true, even when it objectively isn't.
Bad News: Syrian Government Continues to Win Key Battles
Why is this bad? Because it seems to me that our only real interest in Syria is a stalemate. As long as the Mullah loving terrorists are killing the bin Laden loving terrorists, I'm happy.
To paraphrase Han Solo: Better them than me!
So, maybe it's time to start arming the FSA? Keep the war going and what not before it's too late and Assad's goons get such an upper hand that it's effectively over:
Syria's regime captured from rebel fighters a key town near Lebanon on Monday, as doubts were cast on any breakthrough at a Geneva peace conference slated for next month....Also, I think we should be selling arms to the Kurds no matter what happens with the other two factions. That way, no matter who wins, we have a reliable ally in the region. I just don't see either side taking back Kurdish territory, even after this thing is over.
But Observatory director Rami Abdel Rahman told AFP that the army had secured most of Nabak, including all of the western part of the town adjacent to the highway.
Pro-government newspaper Al-Watan said the highway, essential to move troops and weapons and cement regime control from Damascus to the central province of Homs, would reopen soon.
Russian President Putin Scraps RIA Novosti
RIA Novosti Headquarters
The Kremlin announced Monday the dissolution of RIA Novosti, the country’s major state-run news agency, amid a significant reorganization of state-owned media assets.Apparently, the shutdown of RIA Novosti, which 'must be carried out by the government within three months,' came as a surprise to the workers.
News agency RIA Novosti and the state-owned Voice of Russia radio will be scrapped and absorbed into a new media conglomerate called Rossiya Segodnya, according to a decree signed by President Vladimir Putin.
The move is the latest in a series of shifts in Russia’s news landscape, which appear to point toward a tightening of state control in the already heavily regulated media sector.

Eyewitnesses said Hsiao could be heard telling his girlfriend that they already had more bags than they could carry, but she insisted on hitting one more store where there was a sale on shoes.
An eyewitness said: "He told her she already had enough shoes, more shoes that she could wear in a lifetime, and it was pointless buying any more. She started shouting at him, accusing him of being a skinflint, and of spoiling Christmas. It was a really heated argument."
The argument continued until Hsiao threw the bags on the floor and himself over the balcony, dropping seven stories to his death and smashing Christmas decorations on the way down. He was killed on impact. (Source)
Knockout Game Goes Right
In an apparent case of the "Knockout Game" gone wrong, new video shows a man attempting to hit a girl and knock her down as part of the game, but his plan backfires when the woman hits him back.
The incident, which happened in a Las Vegas shopping mall, shows the woman retaliate as soon as she is hit by the man. She starts to beat him on the head when another man, who is reported to be her boyfriend, runs back to try to break it up when he realizes that the guy hit her.
"You hit a girl?" the apparent boyfriend asks before springing into defense mode and helping the woman beat the man. People are watching the incident unfold, asking what happened, before the woman and her boyfriend angrily walk away. (Source)

Islamists Invent New Way to Behead Captives
In a newly published video, made by an organization identified with Al Qaeda, terrorists proudly demonstrate what they call "the fastest way to behead Alawites."Update by Howie: The video is below the fold. Its from an Assad Regime source so there is the possibility that its pure constructed propaganda.
A captive is seen kneeling, his hands tied behind his body and his eyes covered with cloth. In front of him is a pickup truck equipped with a heavy machine gun. A member of the Islamist organization points the gun to the victim's head and fires, as cries of "Allahu akbar" are heard.

Teen Sisters Runaway To Syria To Help Rebels; Rebels Promptly Take Them Hostage
OSLO - Two teenaged Norwegian sisters who ran away from home in October, saying they wanted to help rebels in Syria, are indeed in the war-wracked country, a lawyer for their family confirmed Thursday. [...]
Their disappearance in mid-October, with messages to the family that they planned to go to Syria to support insurgents there, prompted Norway to launch an international search for them through Interpol.
Their father told NRK at the end of October that online messages he had received from the girls suggested they had made it to Syria, where they said they were being "held against their will" by rebels.
I'm not sure why Norway is going through the trouble of an international search through Interpol. These girls want to live under sharia law. They want to aid Islamic rebels. Their dreams are being fulfilled. Norway should leave them be.
3 Sentenced for Trying to Enforce Sharia in UK
This is good news:
Three members of a so-called 'Muslim Patrol' were today jailed at the Old Bailey for repeatedly trying to enforce Sharia law in East London.One of the dudes sentenced was often seen with Anjem Choudary (look for an albino looking kid with a shaggy red beard -- that's him). Another is well known online for his jihadi videos produced for Choudary's now defunct "shariah7UK" group. The last one wasn't name for some "legal" reasons. I assume it is because he's a minor.
Jordan Horner and another Islamic extremist told one couple they could not hold hands while walking down the street, because it was in a 'Muslim area'.
The radicals also attacked a group of men drinking in the road, and told a woman she would face 'hell fire' because of the way she was dressed.

Muslims Beat Man Nearly To Death For Daring To Help An Elderly Muslimah
VT Prasad has been hospitalised for severe injuries and internal bleeding.
According to police, 35 men suspected to be from Karnataka Forum for Dignity (KFD) attacked the reporter near his house, beating him up with clubs and sticks and dragged him to a distance of 100 metres before they dumped him.
The group tried to prevent him from being taken to hospital, blocking the road leading to Kolnad. When the ambulance arrived, they surrounded the vehicle and tried to drag him out. A strong crowd of locals intervened and shifted him to Mangalore hospital, where his condition is stated to be critical, but stable.
What offense did he commit to deserve such treatment by The Religion of Peace™?
Prasad helped an old Muslim woman who was living alone in abject poverty. He collected donations from local residents and helped her build a small house on a piece of land she owned.
I do not think "dignity" means what these Muslims think it means...

The young and healthy are flocking to a different gambling site than the Obamacare website:
Each of Atlantic City's twelve casinos can operate up to five gambling websites so long as they screen out customers from out of state. Peggy Holloway, senior credit officer for Moody's Investors Service, says the new sites will "appeal to a younger, more Internet-savvy demographic that might lack the discretionary budget to travel to one of Atlantic City's 12 casinos." And indeed, fifty thousand people signed up online for New Jersey’s gambling sites in the first week. That compares with 741 who signed up for Obamacare during all of October.
Obama's Lies About a Weakened al Qaeda "Complicated" by Facts says .... NY Times
When you've lost the Times, you've lost the narrative. I think Chomsky said something like that once. And you know what? On the rare occasion, Chomsky was right.
Now the Times doesn't come right out and say that Obama has been lying about al Qaeda being on the run. No, they say the facts have "complicated the narrative" being pushed by Obama.
Which is as close as the partisans at the NY Times will ever come to calling The One a liar:
The new signs of an energized but fragmented jihadist threat, stretching from Mali and Libya in the west to Yemen in the east, have complicated the narrative of a weakened Al Qaeda that President Obama offered in May in a landmark speech heralding the end of the war on terrorism. The leaders of the Senate and House intelligence committees, Senator Dianne Feinstein of California and Representative Mike Rogers of Michigan, raised warnings in an interview on CNN on Sunday when they said that Americans were “not safer” from terrorist attacks than they were in 2011.Not only are we "not safer" --- which could be read as "not unsafer, either" -- we are, in fact ... less safe today than we were four years ago.
It's not just the President Obama has taken his eye off the ball. He seems to think the game is over. Unfortunately the fat lady isn't singing. Instead, she's decided to blow the stadium up.
Today is a great day for freedom. On this day in 1933, the 21st Amendment was ratified, thus repealing Prohibition. My former colleague Brandon Arnold wrote about it a few years ago:I also have five gallons of an old bootleg wine recipe that is bubbling away. ETA Januaryish.
The website RepealDay.org urges celebrations of the “return to the rich traditions of craft fermentation and distillation, the legitimacy of the American bartender as a contributor to the culinary arts, and the responsible enjoyment of alcohol as a sacred social custom.” It’s easy! You don’t have to hold a party. Just go to a bar or liquor store and have a drink.
Eat drink and and be merry all ya Jawas.
NY Councilwoman: "Knock-Out" Game Is Da Joos Fault
The Joos are just too successful. That makes blacks resentful, according to soon-to-be Councilwoman Laurie Cumbo:
CROWN HEIGHTS — The alleged "knockout" attacks on Jewish residents of Crown Heights may stem from ongoing racial tension between the neighborhood's black and Jewish communities, a newly-elected Brooklyn politician said.
Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo, who was elected to represent Crown Heights starting in January, released an open letter Tuesday saying that many of her black constituents told her they feel threatened by the growth of the neighborhood's Jewish community -- and she fears the tension could be spiking the recent violence. [...]
"I respect and appreciate the Jewish community's family values and unity that has led to strong political, economic and cultural gains. While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success."
There's that sense of unearned entitlement of an Obama supporter.

American Teacher Murdered by Islamic Terrorists in Benghazi Libya
An American teacher working at an international school in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi was shot and killed Thursday, a school official confirmed to CBS News.Well what a mystery huh, who could have.... the American was so sweet?
Ronald Smith, a chemistry teacher at the International School Benghazi originally from Texas, was jogging at the time of the attack, according to the official.
“He was doing his morning exercise when gunmen just shot him. I don’t know why. He was so sweet with everyone,” Adel al Mansouri, director at the school in Benghazi, told Reuters.
It was not immediately clear who was responsible for the killing..
OK its Ansar al-Sharia doing the murdering and he was murdered because he was an American infidel. For the same reason they blame the Jews for everything.
Because they are racist against non-Muslims aka the Kuffar.
Its not that hard to understand, unless you have a problem with using the terms terrorist, murder and infidel in a story about Libya. You know Libya where Obama turned the country over to terrorists.
But hey Gaddafi is dead, so Obama can spike that football, do a little dance. But after the kick he's still down 41-7 to al-Qaeda in Libya with 2:00 remaining in the 4th.
Our thoughts go out to Mr. Smith's family. His murder was just the latest senseless and bigoted act from Ansar al-Sharia and its surely won't be the last.

And they gave out gift bags, how sweet!
FSA Fighters Take Nuns Hostage
How's that war in Syria working out for ya?
Opposition fighters abducted 12 nuns from a Christian village overrun by rebels, Syria’s Greek Orthodox patriarch and the head of a convent said Tuesday, adding to fears that hard-line Muslim rebels trying to overthrow President Bashar Assad were increasingly targeting Christians....Often times we mix up the Free Syrian Army with the various Islamist groups which are not part of the FSA. So, the FSA gets blamed for a lot of bad things that aren't, in fact, being done by them.
The nuns and three other women were seized Monday from the Greek Orthodox Mar Takla convent in the village of Maaloula and taken to the nearby rebel-held town of Yabroud, which also has a large Christian population, said Mother Superior Febronia Nabhan, head of the nearby Saidnaya Convent.
But this time? This time it looks like the FSA, which our government is funneling money to, is really behind the kidnappings:
Loay al-Mikdad, a spokesman for the mainstream rebel Free Syrian Army, denounced the behavior of some groups in Maaloula, but blamed the regime for placing tanks and other military hardware inside the village. Speaking to Al-Arabiya TV, he said rebels went into Maaloula not for sectarian reasons but because of its strategic location.So, if the secular moderates no longer have any control over the various "moderate" groups fighting under the FSA umbrella, then why should we be giving them money?
As a matter or regional and global strategy, it is in our interests that the Assad regime fall. But as a matter of tactics, it's not clear why falling to this particular group of rebels will actually improve the strategic situation. Sure, Assad's fall will bloody the nose of Iran and a resurgent Russia, but I really don't know if the chaos that ensues will strengthen our global position.

Hezbollah Blames JUICE for Assassination of Leader
And you know what? Normally they'd be right. But Lebanon is square in the middle of a proxy war between Sunni opponents of Syria's Assad regime and Hezbollah, which is sending its terrorists to fight on behalf of Assad.
So, consider this rhetoric. Both sides always blame the JOOs for everything bad that happens. They're like gremlins, those wascally Jews! Don't feed them after midnight.
Hezbollah on Wednesday said one of its leaders had been assassinated near Beirut and accused Israel of being behind the killing.I guess if I'm being honest with myself, I really don't care who killed this guy. The fact that he's dead is good enough.
"The Islamic resistance announces the death of one of its leaders, the martyr Hassan Hawlo al-Lakiss, who was assassinated near his house in the Hadath region" east of Beirut, Hezbollah television channel Al Manar said.
"Direct accusation is aimed of course against the Israeli enemy which had tried to eliminate our martyred brother again and again and in several places but had failed, until yesterday evening," a Hezbollah statement broadcast by the channel said.

Terror Supporting Pres. of SFSU General Union of Palestinian Students Also Keen on Stabbing Israelis
I'm guessing this guy is a Tea Partier
The fact that SFSU hasn't and won't do anything just goes to show that most of what passes for cultural sensitivity is just slang for we don't believe brown people are as morally accountable as white people. It's not even the soft bigotry of low expectations, it's the hard bigotry of believing Muslims don't have it in them to act in a civilized manner and therefore we'll treat them like children. Or retards.
And yes, this guy does support terrorism. The last time I checked, Hamas is a terrorist organization and it looks like he has fond feelings for them.
And the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, also a terrorist organization.
Background here. Someone do me a favor and let me know if SFSU actually does anything about this guy or the Palestinian student organization he leads.

Robert Spencer & Pamela Geller Banned From UK For Supporting Israel
The British government tried to cover its tracks. But a new cache of documents Robert Spencer and I have received in our battle to overturn our being banned from Britain reveal that a chief reason why we were banned from the country was because we strongly support Israel. As part of our lawsuit against the Queen of England and the Home Secretary et al, we have received numerous documents between the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the Office of Security and Counterterrorism, and the Home Secretary. In one of them, an official in the Foreign & Commonwealth Office whose name was redacted wrote this letter on May 7 to a recipient whose name was also redacted:
I have received initial feedback from Post to say that they do not expect that there would be any reaction from the US Administration to these exclusions.
We do have concerns with some of the reasoning in the sub, particularly citing pro-Israeli views and. [sic] Pro-Israeli views (and also support for waterboarding) apply to a large number of Americans, including former Presidents. If, for instance, Geller and Spencer were to request details of their exclusion under FOI/DPA or other mechanism, that being pro-Israeli is cited as a reason may be problematic and they could argue publically that their exclusion is on the basis of their support for Israel.
The UK has officially become antisemitic. If it finds Israeli supporters more objectionable than Islamist immigrants, then the United Kingdom is truly lost, the first major casualty in Islam's war against the West.

Blaming Terrorism on Climate Change
During the Dark Ages the ignorant masses blamed God or demons for every event that seemed out of the ordinary. Crops fail? It's the wrath of God. Turn into a newt? Got better? The Devil's consort, a witch.
We know that "Climate Change" is nothing more than the new mysticism because it isn't science. Scientific theories produce hypothesis which can be nullified. That's fancy talk for when theory claims something will happen, and it doesn't, then normally we say the theory is either wrong or needs some serious tweaking.
But with "Climate Change" everything is "proof" of the theory, and nothing that happens can disprove it -- the exact opposite of the scientific method. But which is perfectly in line with faith or mysticism.
So, the temperature is rising? Climate Change! The temperature is falling? Climate Change! Ice sheets get bigger? Climate Change! Ice sheets get smaller? Climate Change!
We need only wait a few more years until turning into a newt will also be blamed on Climate Change!
Climate change, the new God or the new Devil? Either way, it's the Dark Ages all over again. Actual headline: How climate change is helping Al Qaeda.
In order to back up the claim that climate change is responsible for the increase in terrorism in Africa, the rag then decides to ask ...... a guy who works for an "energy efficiency company" and two academics -- one at Berkeley and one at UT Austin. Only the green energy guy claims there's a connection. So, when the two academics come out and say there's no evidence that climate change is increasing conflict and therefore violent extermism -- with the UT Austin guy going so far as saying:
The science is just not there yet,The rag replies:
But those who live in the region see a direct — and very personal — linkGet that? Climate Change! is science. It's settled. But when the experts say, "Actually, there's no scientific evidence of a link between Climate Change! and violence" the media replies with .... well, a bunch of illiterate tribespeople and a guy with a personal stake in promoting green energy claim there's a link so there must be!
Science is science when it proves your point. But science isn't science when it doesn't. In fact, the narrative of illiterate villagers is also science when that narrative "proves" your point.
And having settled the question, what does the rag then propose as the solution? If you guess wrong, you're a moron:
Sloan advocates sustainable rural electrification via mini-hydro, solar or wind. “If you empower someone you give them the feeling that they have some control over their own fate,”So, there you are. In order to fight al Qaeda we need to adopt more green energy.
It's on: Hundreds of Boko Haram Fighters Overrun Nigerian Air Force Base
This low level terrorism stuff is beginning to look like a full blown insurgency/civil war:
Boko Haram, a Nigerian terrorist group with ties to al Qaeda, launched a major attack on a Nigerian Air Force base in the insurgency-wracked city of Maiduguri. A number of security personnel were killed and several aircraft were destroyed during the nighttime attack that is said to have been executed by hundreds of Boko Haram fighters.Not good.
Hundreds of fighters assaulted the base on the outskirts of Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state, using trucks and even a stolen armored personnel carrier, beginning at 2:30 a.m. local time, according to The Associated Press. Boko Haram fighters yelled "Allahu akbar" as they attacked.

Bailing his wife out of jail. Apparently she takes her 'Bama football seriously:
After an Iron Bowl party on Saturday turned violent, police have charged 28-year-old Adrian Laroze Briskey with murder for the shooting death of 36-year-old Michelle Lacette Shepherd....Which just goes to show that desegregation was a bad idea in Alabama. They really should have separate drinking fountains for Auburn and Tide fans!
When officers arrived, Shepherd was already dead. According to authorities, Briskey and Shepherd got into an argument after the game and the fight spilled into the parking lot. During the incident, Briskey allegedly shot Shepherd three times with a small caliber handgun. The women did not know each other prior to the party.
So, I almost had it right yesterday when I said I wasn't bailing Howie out.
America Is Weaker Against Terrorism Because It Has Failed To Recognize Islamic Motivation
This will not come as a surprise to those of you who are not so politically correct to whitewash Islam:
But important, ominous, and accurate as that assessment is, it was not the most important point made by these two respected lawmakers. Instead, it was Sen. Feinstein's observation in response to a question about what causes the "hatred" that makes our situation more perilous:There is a real displaced aggression in this very fundamentalist jihadist Islamic community, and that is that the West is responsible for everything that goes wrong and that the only thing that's going to solve this is Islamic shariah law.
What makes this incontrovertible statement so noteworthy? It is the fact that the intelligence community is not allowed to say it. Under Obama administration guidelines, for intelligence officers–and for that matter, law enforcement, Homeland Security and military personnel–to talk about Islamic jihadism and shariah as the motivation for terrorism can be a career-ending offense.
You can only deny truth for so long. As Sir Winston Churchill once said, "The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is."
There it is.
Atheist Christmas Billboard Campaign
I'm an Atheist. But these Atheist organizations are operated by cowards who, for some reason, feel threatened and intimidated by another person's beliefs. They can only defend their own beliefs by attacking someone else's.
I would even be willing to go out on a limb here and suggest these organizations are wholly liberal leaning. Not all Atheists are liberals. But those who are imposing their beliefs by demeaning others are. Just as leftists must attack others for having different opinions politically, these leftist Atheists must attack others for having different opinions spiritually.
But they are also cowards for another reason. Christianity is not a threat to Atheists. Our Christian nation was designed to protect everyone equally despite personal religious beliefs. Still these Atheists continue to attack Christianity. Yet, Islam, which routinely executes Atheists in Islamic countries, is ignored by these organizations.
There is a double standard. It is a double standard that only exposes their cowardice. Do these group post billboards during Ramadan? Of course not. That would require more testicular fortitude than they have.
They want demean those who disagree. They want to spread their hate under the guise of tolerance. But they also want to keep their heads.
An atheist organization is beginning a billboard campaign in Sacramento, California to encourage other atheists to "come out of the closet" as the Christmas season has believers turning their focus to faith in God.
According to a local ABC news affiliate, the Greater Sacramento Chapter of the Madison, Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation is erecting 55 billboards on Monday just as the Christmas season gets into full swing. The campaign, part of an ongoing endeavor titled, "Out of the Closet," hopes to let atheists know that having God in your life is not a necessity.
My biggest complaint with Christian conservatives is that they tend to lump all Atheists with these idiots. Most Atheists are not like this. Most Atheists don't care if you want to believe in a higher power or not. Just don't impose your spiritual beliefs on them.
When you equate all Atheists with those in these organizations, it is no different than equating all Christians with the Westboro Baptist loons. Stop judging.
And have a Merry Christmas.

Awesome: Israel Kills 3 al Qaeda Types
An Islamist group linked to al Qaeda has claimed three militants killed in the West Bank by Israeli forces last week as its members, and said this shows it has taken root in the occupied Palestinian territory...Oddly enough, the PA claims there are no al Qaeda supporters in the West Bank. Right.
Israeli officials had said the three men killed on Tuesday belonged to an al Qaeda-linked cell plotting attacks on Israeli and Palestinian targets. They said the men were shot after firing at Israeli troops who tried to arrest them.

Sharia In America: Dearborn Couple Harassed For Flying Israeli Flag
Apparently, Dearborn's Muslim residents are not happy to see Israeli supporters in their city. Of course, instead of ignoring them as most Americans would, these pious Muhammadans resort to intimidation:
The latest incident they fell victim to was paintballs splattered all over their home and cars Friday night . Now the family says they fear for their safety.
Terresa and Hussein Dakhlallah say it all started two years ago when they put an American flag and an Israeli flag up outside of their Dearborn home.
Terresa is American, but she grew up in Canada. Hussein is from Lebanon.
"They left Nazi signs in our front yard, " said Terresa. "Two people were standing there, one with a lighter and one with a gas tank, telling us that they were going to burn our home down."
The couple has been taunted over and over again -- even on Thanksgiving as Terresa began to decorate her home for Christmas.
And late Friday night a group men in an SUV came back firing paintballs at the cars and on the side of the house.
The couple is terrified and don't feel safe in their own home.
Now that Dearborn police are involved, the couple hopes things will get better before they get worse.

But What If She Comes Up With Four Witnesses To Say The Sea Raped Her?
Egyptian fatwas make women guilty of adultery when they swim in ocean, eat bananas, or leave the A/C on:
During Morsi's brief stint as president, the Muslim Brotherhood and the equally violently straight laced Salafists issued blatantly anti-women fatwas on a regular basis.
Arguably leading the list was the fatwa (Islamic religious ruling) issued that noted the Arab word for "sea" is masculine, therefore, if and when sea water comes into contact with a married woman's pelvic area, she literally committed adultery.
According to the fatwa, she becomes an 'adulteress' and should be punished.
The standard Sharia Law punishment for adultery for a woman is slowly stoning her to death.
Sure. Let's negotiate peace with these neanderthals.
