DMartyr Gets Noticed
I love our readers but its always nice to get recognition from other bloggers. Huff Watcher over at The Algemeiner was kind enough to give me credit for noticing something the professional "researchers" and "journalists" at Huffington Post didn't.
And that is the space picture of the Gaza conflict. If you missed my post, read it HERE.
Huff Watcher also mentioned another blogger, "CandidBouncyGraySquirrel," who made a brilliant overlay of the space image and a map of Israel so you can see how all the ports line up:
The Huffington Post, and most of the MSM that ran with the pro-Palestinian version of "explosions in Gaza seen from space" still haven't issued a correction or clarification.
Thanks, Huff Watcher!

Jawa Report The Last Refuge of Buxom Wenches
An activist suggests we stop using the term Buxom Wench.
A term that fell out of favor over 100 years ago.
Fell out of favor 100 years ago, how on earth have we let this happen?
If there's one thing the world needs more of its Buxom Wenches!
Because Buxom Wenches always have been and always will be fun loving, independent, hetro women on the cutting edge of liberation! And always will be.
A world without Buxom Wenches would be a dull, colorless joyless place.

Book Review: Israel Strikes
One of the privileges of being a high powered blogger is that people are constantly sending me freebies (or trying). Mostly, I just turn them down. If I'm interested in your book I'll pay for the dang thing! If I accept a freebie and I don't say anything about it, chances are I didn't think much of it. Or at least, it was nothing I thought worth mentioning. It doesn't mean I hate your book, it just means, I dunno, I gave it a meh. Or meant to write something and then got all ADD and forgot about it.
At other times people buy ads in the sidebar and I just ignore them. A few months ago, though, I saw this book being advertised called Israel Strikes by William Strook and it seemed interesting so I bought it. That means I paid cold hard cash for it, just like the rest of you, so if you think my (short) review is biased by some kind of financial incentive then screw you guys, I'm going home.
Here's what I thought about it: Loved it!
So go buy the book. Now. It's only $2.99 on kindle. That's cheaper than a Big Mac and much more satisfying.
Synopsis: Israel bombs the hell out of everyone you and I think need to be bombed the hell out of. Lots of twists and turns. Bad people die, liberals whine, the reader comes away satisfied.
I'd say it's a kind of mini-version of Tom Clancy's World War III epic novel Red Storm Rising. But instead of the US vs the Soviets this is Israel vs. Iran & Hezbollah. It has that same multi-person point of view narrative that Clancy often employs, but maybe not as much technical detail (although there were a few times I found myself Googling this or that piece of military hardware). I especially like the Saudis role in the whole affair.
So, there it is. It's a pretty good read. It sat on my Kindle for a few months and I forgot I had bought it, but a couple of weeks ago I had a long flight and remembered it was on there and then couldn't put it down until I was through.
Any other good reads out there? Recommendations?
UPDATE: Oops, that should have been WWIII not WWII, obviously

Hot Olympic Skier Jackie Chamoun Boobies Cause Outrage in Lebanon
Lebanon’s fractured sense of national identity was on full display this week, as bloggers rallied online to defend the honor of a female Olympian, the skier Jackie Chamoun, accused by the country’s sports minister of tarnishing the nation’s image by posing for seminude photographs on the slopes outside Beirut.Oh the horror!
As the blogger Abir Ghattas explained, the photographs of the young skier and a colleague, and a risqué promotional video for the calendar they were used in, were unknown in Lebanon until a television channel, Al Jadeed, published them on Monday under the headline, “Scandal — Lebanese Skiing Champions Are Nude Starlets!”
More images of Jackie Chamoun below the fold.

Main Threats to Turkey: Jews, Porn and Youtube
Never mind the war in Syria, or Iraq or a plethora of other issues, what really scares the Turks are those tempting Jewesseses.
In the aftermath of the latest bout of protests in Turkey, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan identified the latest set of conspirators out to sabotage his government: pornographers. The pro-government newspaper the Star published a headline accusing the “porn lobby” of instigating violent protests....Um Yeah, I can kind of see their point....
But evidently now that the AKP has come under fire for corruption scandals, a nose-diving currency, a feud with the Gulenist movement, continued popular dissent, a tottering foreign policy, and a war next door, the porn-watching, Lufthansa-flying, interest-rate manipulating Jews have found their opportunity to pounce.

RACHEL MARSDEN – COME ON DOWN!As someone once said, read the rest.
Pre-amble: I have had years of people coming at me using sexual ploys to try and needle my true ID out of me – but this is the first time I have had someone come at me using my ‘dox’ to try and actually get sex. This is a hefty post so here’s a spoiler (full resolution download here) if you are short on time, you’ll get the skinny straight away, but I highly recommend reading this full post for context and completeness.
The first thing I would like you to take notice of here is the quote above, please bear in mind that I actually tweeted this exact quote out days ago when I started work on this particular blog post. My reasons for pointing this out will become apparent as you (hopefully) enjoy this latest episode of wacky. So what’s been going on then? Well it seems somebody has taken a little shine to me and is more than a little annoyed that, well, to put it bluntly, I have rejected her internet delivered aggressive sexual advances. Here’s the scoop:
So a couple weeks back I get followed by one @RachelMarsden - I briefly glanced at her profile and saw she appeared to be a National Security and Political commentator so I followed back. She almost instantaneously began to make aggressive sexual advances to me in Twitter Direct Messages while also insisting she knew my true identity. I get this kind of thing a lot, so I just blocked her as another troll/failed social engineer. Unfortunately I find myself blocking between 50-100 lunatics a day and so thought nothing of it. A short time later a person I have respect for on twitter, whose name I am not going to mention, but lets just say his name rhymes with ‘orange’, contacted me to explain to me that @RachelMarsden was truly upset that I had blocked her, vouched for her, and requested that I unblock her, and because it was ‘orange’ requesting it, I unblocked and followed. But that’s a rare occurrence, so I decided to check this woman out, thinking she must be pretty amazing at whatever it is she does.
WELL HOLY SHIT!!!
I immediately saw she’s outstanding at what she does. In fact, she’s been previously recognized the world over as a leader in her field. She’s a goddam convicted serial stalker. I shit you not. Here’s a small selection of her ‘awards’.

A 23-year-old political activist was last night revealed as the woman allegedly at the center of Anthony Weiner's latest sexting scandal - which took place a year after he resigned from office in disgrace.Hat Tip: JWF.
The woman, identified by Buzzfeed as 'Sydney Leathers', was named just hours after she is believed to have released copies of explicit conversations with the disgraced ex-Congressman and pictures of his genitals that she claims he sent her.
Sydney Elaine Leathers is a 23-year-old blogger for the Indiana Progressive Liberals and was a field organizer for Obama's re-election campaign. She once named Weiner as a political hero online.

Heartbreak Co-Conspirator in Jihad Jane Case Can't Pray in Irish Prison Because of the Porn
An Algerian man jailed in Ireland and wanted by the United States on terrorism charges filed a damages suit against the Irish state on Tuesday, saying his prison conditions were "not even suitable for animals".Oh the horror, if anyone has, you know, contact with some of Damache neighbors, ask them to put this one up for us.
Ali Charaf Damache is wanted by the FBI for conspiracy in a foiled international plot to murder a Swedish cartoonist whose depiction of the Prophet Mohammad with the body of a dog caused outrage in Muslim countries.
"Cork Prison is not even suitable for animals," Damache, 47, told the High Court. "There was a television and radio (in my cell). When I practiced my prayer they (cellmates) deliberately put the volume up (and) they put pictures of naked women on the wall. I can't pray in a place where there are naked pictures..."
Damache said he had been unable to wash before prayer and handling the Koran, as his faith requires, and was usually allowed to shower and change his underwear just once a week
Also I hear there is a rumor he's keeping hashish in his rectum. Better check that.
Damache was convicted in the Jihad Jane plot. Another accomplice Jihad Jamie (aka Jamie Paulin-Ramirez married Damache upon her arrival in Ireland only to find that Damache was only interested in the Muslima as a sex slave.

Angelina Jolie's Has Double Mastectomy
Angelina Jolie, one of Hollywood’s biggest and most visible stars, writes in a New York Times editorial about a very private medical decision she managed to keep secret.n April 27, I finished the three months of medical procedures that the mastectomies involved. During that time I have been able to keep this private and to carry on with my work.
But I am writing about it now because I hope that other women can benefit from my experience. Cancer is still a word that strikes fear into people’s hearts, producing a deep sense of powerlessness. But today it is possible to find out through a blood test whether you are highly susceptible to breast and ovarian cancer, and then take action.

Cleric Admonishes Hot Iranian Chicks; Asks Them to Cover Up;
Hot Iranian Chicks Kick His Ass
The feel good story of the day. CNN:
Two girls clobbered a cleric recently in a small town in Iran when he admonished one of them to cover herself more completely.
The cleric said he asked "politely," but the girl's angry reaction and some pugilistic double-teaming with her friend landed the holy man in the hospital, according to an account Monday in the semiofficial Mehr News Agency.
Jawa Hot Iranian Chick Image Credit
...She hit the man of the cloth, and he hit the ground.
"I don't remember what happened after that," he said. "I just felt her kicks and heard her insults."
Beheshti, who emerged from the infirmary three days later, said he did not file a complaint against the girls.
But he doesn't mind the local prosecutor's investigation into the matter either "as long as the case helps the cause of Islamic hijab."

Just a Link: The REAL Velvet Revolution
Velvet Revolution is the name of one of Brett Kimberlin's so-called non profit groups. His wiki and website are on the top of Google search. Now, originalvelvetrevolution.com wants to try to change that.
Bottom line is:
Brett Kimberlin and the Justice of Google
On November 19, 1989, the people of Prague, in the former state of Czechoslovakia, gathered to commemorate a massacre of Czech students by Nazi Germany fifty years earlier. By the end of the day, the gathering turned into a demonstration against a ruling Communist government that had begun massacring Czechs and Slovaks from virtually the moment the Nazis were booted out. By December 29, 1989, without a shot fired, the protesters had driven out their Communist masters, electing poet, playwright, and political prisoner Vaclav Havel as interim President. This peaceful revolt by a peaceful people against their Stalinist puppet government became known as the “Velvet Revolution”.
On November 30, 2004, convicted terrorist bomber, drug dealer, and perjurer Brett Kimberlin formed a Maryland corporation for the purpose of soliciting tax-exempt donations from the public and charitable foundations, to promote an alleged “network of more than 100 progressive organizations reaching millions of people demanding progressive change through our various campaigns”. Campaigns such as offering bounties for the head of the Chamber of Commerce, the impeachment of a Supreme Court Justice, and proof that John Kerry actually won the 2004 presidential election.
This corporation was also known as the Velvet Revolution, or “VelvetRevolution.US, Inc.” according to its corporate filings.
We believe it is a farce and a disgrace that Brett Kimberlin seeks to cloak his *nefarious acts under the name “Velvet Revolution”, a name which in the rest of the world stands for courage and dignity in the face of terror.Link to them, post on FB, follow them on on Twitter, whatevers.
The second result of a Google search for “Velvet Revolution” leads to Brett Kimberlin. This is unacceptable.
Brett Kimberlin, and his associate Brad Friedman, do not own the name “Velvet Revolution”. They do not, and cannot, claim trademark or copyright protection in the term, because in the realm of politics, where Kimberlin and Friedman seek to meddle, the term “Velvet Revolution” is more generic than “Jell-O”.
Likewise, we do not own the name “Velvet Revolution”. No one owns the term. The Czechs and Slovaks who put their lives on the line in 1989 have a pretty strong moral claim, but they’re all in MittelEuropa. The Czechs and Slovaks have bigger problems than one terrorist moonbat making a mockery of a First Amendment that they don’t have anyway.
So we’re taking the name back, for them.
What are your demands?
Our needs are simple. We seek to drive Brett Kimberlin’s fake Velvet Revolution into third place, or lower, on a Google search for the term. We estimate that we can do this within six months. Eventually we’d like to knock Wikipedia out of the top spot, but all things in their time.[ More...]

Because Blankmeyer alleges her mental health deteriorated while she was in that situation and the school did nothing to help her resolve it, she is suing the college for $150,000.

Senate Study on The Online Radicalization of Zachary Chesser of Revolution Muslim
The Internet and social media are integral ingredients in the rapid radicalization of homegrown terrorists, said a staff study by the Senate homeland security committee that recommended a coordinated government response to counter online radical propaganda and help communities intervene in the radicalization process.The .pdf copy of the study is here.
The report, released on Feb. 27 by the staff of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, was based on the close study of the personal writings of Zachary Chesser, the Bristow, VA man now serving a 25-year sentence for threatening the writers of the South Park television show, soliciting violent jihadists to desensitize law enforcement, and attempting to provide material support to Al-Shabaab.
The study also provides some unique detail into Chesser’s motivations and personality.
The Senate staff said Chesser’s case was a classic case study of how quickly online radicalization can occur compared to the traditional process of face to face contact between an aspirant and an established terrorist group.
Jawa report was not mentioned in the study, we were basically robbed. But we're getting really used to that ;)

It seems the efforts to ban this girl's slutty pics have backfired on the yearbook staff, making Sydney famous overnight. I bet that really burns their asses.

Super Committee Approaches Deadline
(Washington) Political wrangling within the Joint Deficit Reduction Committee continues with a deadline of November 23 for finding $1.5 trillion in deficit reduction.
They have been meeting for two months, poring over concepts and ideas already hashed out by three other groups over the past year.I suspect the committee will find a way to delay making a final decision.
But 10 days before their deadline, members of the so-called congressional "super committee" created to forge a deficit reduction deal indicated Sunday that they remain hung up on basic issues of tax and entitlement reform that have previously stymied agreement.
