Sandcrawler PSA: Communism and You

Venezuela's Combie Apocalypse continues.

The Venezuelan case is a textbook example of the evolution of socialism. While the Soviets and the Maoists had intricate five-year plans, Venezuela had essentially one big plan: Use the profits from state-run oil companies to fund a massive welfare state, and use the leverage thus gained to fortify support for Hugo Chŕvez and his political party until they achieved power sufficient to move Venezuela’s assets and its people around like pawns on a chessboard. The problem is that people are not chessmen. Chŕvez et al. turned out to be pretty poor chess players, but even if they had been grandmasters, it would not have been enough. Economies cannot in fact be controlled and managed in the way that socialists imagine,

...No one yet knows how many deaths Venezuelan socialism will inflict on Venezuela. But it is a fact that children are starving to death in what was, not so long ago, South America’s wealthiest country. In the 1950s, Venezuela’s GDP per capita was about the same as West Germany’s. (Some of you younger readers may want to read up on why there was such a thing as West Germany. That’s another chapter in the annals of socialism.) Being rich is no prophylactic against tyranny or anarchy.

Sandcrawler PSA: Half Pint is Raycyst!


The board of the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), a division of the American Library Association, made the unanimous decision to remove the name of author Laura Ingalls Wilder from a major children’s book award at a meeting in New Orleans on Saturday.

The name of the prize has been changed from the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award to the Children’s Literature Legacy Award, the Guardian reports.

The association, which took the vote at its board meeting in New Orleans, said the vote “was greeted by a standing ovation by the audience in attendance,” Fox News reports.

Wilder is best known for her beloved Little House on the Prairie novels, which the ALSC has stated “includes expressions of stereotypical attitudes inconsistent with ALSC’s core values” based on Wilder’s portrayal of black people and Native Americans.

RIP: Charles Krauthammer

I hate talking up when cancer wins.

But what a tough old bird Charles was, he faced many challenges, and when facing the ultimate challenge he handled it the same damned way. No sugar coating, strait to the point.

Well done, RIP.

Note From Iran: Annihilate Da Yahood

Remember today's earlier post where Muslims scapegoat all their problems on Jews, its not just the Sunnis, its Ummah wide.

Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said on Friday that Zionist regime will be uprooted surely with the efforts of Muslim nations.
He made the above remark in the presence of a group of officials, Islamic countries’ ambassadors and people from different walks of life on the occasion of advent of Eid al-Fitr.

The problem of the Zionist regime is illegitimacy, he said, adding, “a regime which was founded based on falsehood will surely be annihilated with the efforts of all Muslim nations.”

The Leader pointed to the unity, amity and removal of disputes as one of the most important factors of dignity of the Islamic community and Ummah and said, “Zionist regime is the main cause of discord and difference in the region and among Islamic nations.”

Perhaps Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei is due a little inward reflection, rather than blaming others for his failures?

Nahhh, that's just crazy talk.

Mullah Fazlullah is Dead Jim

Happy Eid!

KABUL, Afghanistan -- An Afghan Defense Ministry official says a U.S. drone strike in northeastern Kunar province has killed Pakistani Taliban chief Mullah Fazlullah. Defense Ministry spokesman Mohammad Radmanish told CBS News and other media outlets on Friday that Fazlullah was traveling in a vehicle along with an unknown number of his fighters when it was struck by a missile on Thursday morning.


According to a statement attributed to U.S. Forces-Afghanistan spokesman, Lt. Col Martin O'Donnell, the U.S. carried out a "counterterrorism strike" Thursday near in the border region between Afghanistan and Pakistan targeting "a senior leader of a designated terrorist organization."

Obviously a case of Missilosis....

Interview: Former Jihadi Jason Walter

At the Investigative project, the focus is on the views of Islamic terrorists towards Jews. An it makes sense, no matter what for of extremism you're talking about, antisemitism is a key indicator of how likely any nut is to act out violently.

Its ubiquitous among all Islamic terrorists, and its source is the Koran.

Jason Walters: I was very radical, and as [a] radical Muslim you are extremely anti-Semitic. But the more and more I deradicalized, the more guilty about this I felt. I've been terribly unjust, and I very much wish to set this right. I have to make good, as someone who previously stood on the wrong side, who has made a horrible mistake. This has become a core theme for me, as much for Jews as Israelis. And not just that: I see also that the pit of anti-Semitism that I myself fell into has now, in one way or another, become normalized in society. It's becoming mainstream. Maybe not as virulently as with Muslims, but you find everywhere the same old stereotypes. There is no balance anymore in the debate over Jews and Israel.

NIW: How did anti-Semitism play out when you were in your radical phase?

JW: Mostly in an obsession with conspiracy theories. As a Salafi-jihadist, anti-Semitism is tied up in your worldview. It is a premise that guides all your perceptions. The dogma is: The Jews refused Mohammed, they are intrinsically bad, they are cursed. There are various hadiths [the Islamic book of the statements and actions of Mohammed] wherein Jews are called the henchmen of the devil, of the anti-Christ. One of the signs the Day of Judgment has arrived is that the Jews will all be assembled at some point in the Middle East, and then, under the direction of Jesus, no less, will be eradicated. It colors your worldview, your thinking, your behavior. You demonize all that is Jewish. During my trial and while I was still living in that world, I thought: The outcome of this will be determined in Tel Aviv. That is where my sentence will ultimately be written."

He laughs. He was brought to justice as an active member of the Hofstadgroep, a radical Islamic group in the Netherlands, one of whose members, Mohammed Bouyeri, killed Theo van Gogh in November, 2004. During a subsequent police raid at the Hofstadgroep headquarters in The Hague, Walters threw a hand grenade at the officers.

Read the rest.

People of Wal Mart: Good Gun Control Edition

Some days you just can't win.

Police say a man who tried to carjack two people was thwarted after the victims both pulled out guns to protect themselves.

Detectives said the incident began when Hill robbed a Walmart liquor store, and attempted to flee in a silver Ford SUV. However, witnesses said the vehicle would not start, so he first tried to carjack Scott Reardean at knifepoint, cutting him on his arms and legs.

“I reached in between my glove box and my console, between my seats, reached down and got my weapon and brandished it for him,” Reardean told WJXT. “He was like, ‘Don’t shoot me.’ I was like, ‘Then get out of here.’”

Hill then jumped into the passenger seat of a woman’s car in a Starbucks drive-thru. Police said the woman got out of her car and grabbed a pistol from her trunk, pointing it at Hill until he ran off.

If all else fails, get a haircut!
Ultimately, police found Hill inside the bathroom of a Supercuts, where he surrendered.
Um, never mind.

America Welcomes Abdullahi Ahmed Abdullahi

Enjoy your stay, we'll be giving you accommodations for 30 to 60 years.

EDMONTON — An Alberta judge has granted an extradition order for a man facing terrorism charges in the United States after he allegedly helped pay for his relatives to travel to Syria.

Abdullahi Ahmed Abdullahi, 33, is accused of being part of a January 2014 jewelry store robbery in Edmonton to fund the Syrian trips.

“I am satisfied that the test … is met,” Court of Queen’s Bench Justice John Little said Thursday. “And I am satisfied that Mr. Abdullahi is the person sought by the United States.

“I therefore order his committal into custody to await surrender.”

Abdullahi shouted in court after the decision came down, but his comments couldn’t be heard in the public gallery. His family and friends were visibly distraught.

Sandcrawler Suggestions: US to Drop ISIS Fighter Back in Syria, Please Add Go-Pro Live Feed

Some people and outraged, you know, that the US is going to release an ISIS Jihadi who just happens to be a dual US/Saudi citizen back in Syria where he was found, sans papers, but with $4100 US dollars and prior notification of Kurdish forces.

The Trump administration is planning to release a suspected ISIS fighter in Syria with more than $4,000 in cash and a new cellphone, a Pentagon official said in a court filing released on Thursday.

“Upon his release, the Petitioner will be given $4,210 in cash, the same amount he had in his possession when was captured,” the Pentagon official, Mark Mitchell, said in a declaration filed in U.S. District Court in Washington. “He will also be provided a new cellular phone (in its original sealed packaging), which he can activate and use if he desires to do so. He will be provided sufficient food and water to last for several days.”

Seems fair to me..... but I do have a problem.

I feel we're not exploiting this incident to its fullest potential. I suggest we attach a go-pro to him and kick him out of a camera equipped plane with a parachute.

We can call it Survivor: Syrian Jihadi Edition, I mean I think that would be a popular show! We can make it a series where we test a new Jihadi's fate every week.

It will be Yuge!

In an interview with the Iranian state TV broadcast on May 30 and circulated by activists on social media networks, Larijani narrated the details of the Iranian regime’s relations with al-Qaeda and how the Iranian intelligence supervised the passage and relocation of al-Qaeda members in Iran.
