Attn: ISIS (bumped)

All ur base are belong to us.

Thanks to @BemetOr8, Beer O'Clock, @meankitteh1, @wvubetasoldier.

We just want the Foley family to know the Jawas are doing what we can. May James RIP.

And it seems the world is finally coming around to our view that Islamic Terror Propaganda is something to be fought actively. We've noticed that providers, especially Google has been more cooperative in removing ISIS propaganda lately. Since Obama has acted in Iraq. Good for them. Not only are they taking down the Foley Murder videos they are erasing all traces from Google's Cache.

But lets get one thing clear, this is NOT President Obama's fault.

Evil people do evil things. ISIS are evil. We must fight evil. Its that simple.


And I also want to thank all those others across the web who are fighting this release.

There's more work to be done on this.


And down

Ha Double D!

ISIS Are Proud of Their Atrocities

Rusty asks that we read Ace's post on the James Foley murder.

In previous wars, America has demonized its opponents, claiming they've committed unspeakable atrocities. (It's an odd and disturbing fact that America never accused the Nazis of the Holocaust until after the war had been won, for fear of making it seem like a "War for Jews.")

As far as I know this is the first war where our enemies are so demonic that they proudly walk up to the camera and commit their atrocities as a commercial advertisement.

Even the Nazis exterminated the Jews in relative secret. (Not to claim that Germans didn't know something bad was going on -- just to say that even the Nazis realized such barbarity could not be carried out in the open.)

These people are true psychopaths.

Rusty has pointed out for years that we punish war crimes, while the Taliban, al-Qaeda and ISIS celebrate war crimes.

The only beef I really have with Ace's post is, These people are true psychopaths. It might have written as, These people are truly evil.

Because that's how I see Islamic terrorists. As the most evil thing currently manifest on this Earth.

Islamic State of Losers Issue Sternly Worded Letter to Freemasons

And to the Black of Washington which I assume is President Obama, ISIS are racists? Who knew.

I can't speak to the validity of the statement, other than its being passed around by various ISIS cheerleaders. ISIS cheerleaders recently passed around a faked Iranian phsyop Fatwa claiming ISIS called for genital mutilation of adult females. Some ISIS cheerleaders apparently agreed with it tho.



So there you have it folks ISIS didn't really get beaten and they are ready to die. And also, Juice! Crusaders! Romans! Whaaah!

Shut up kid!

Hat Tip: Some Jooo Hater.

Update: ISIS reference to Obama as a Black can also be translated as slave. Because among the other things ISIS is bringing back with its Kalifa is slavery.

That's right slavery.

Michael Brown's Autopsy Inconsistent With Witness Statements

(Hat Tip: @RedSteeze)


From The New York Times:

Michael Brown, the unarmed black teenager who was killed by a police officer, sparking protests around the nation, was shot at least six times, including twice in the head, a preliminary private autopsy performed on Sunday found.

One of the bullets entered the top of Mr. Brown's skull, suggesting his head was bent forward when it struck him and caused a fatal injury, according to Dr. Michael M. Baden, the former chief medical examiner for the City of New York, who flew to Missouri on Sunday at the family's request to conduct the separate autopsy. It was likely the last of bullets to hit him, he said.

Mr. Brown, 18, was also shot four times in the right arm, he said, adding that all the bullets were fired into his front.

What this proves is that 1) Brown was facing the officer and not running away as some witnesses have claimed, and 2) Brown did not have his arms raised in the air, as some witnesses have claimed.

In fact, all these wounds are consistent with Officer's Wilson claim that Brown was charging at him when he fired.

UPDATE: For those who claim the article says there were no close contact shots fired, read it again. It says:

The bullets did not appear to have been shot from very close range because no gunpowder was present on his body. However, that determination could change if it turns out that there is gunshot residue on Mr. Brown's clothing, to which Dr. Baden did not have access..

If your answer is: “you do not,” then you are exponentially wiser than the U.S. State Department.

Italy Stands Up to Terrorist Imam

And shows him the door.

Gazzetta del Sud.
Rome, August 5 - Interior Minister Angelino Alfano on Tuesday ordered an imam expelled from Italy for incitement to anti-Semitic hatred. "Oh Allah, count them one by one and kill them all," the Moroccan imam, Raoudi Albdelbar, allegedly preached in a Friday sermon last month in a mosque in the northern city of San Donà di Piave, near Venice. His videotaped sermon was released by the Washington, DC-based Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), which was founded by a former Israeli intelligence officer and an Israeli-born American political scientist. The interior ministry expelled the imam for "seriously disturbing the peace, endangering national security, and religious discrimination" after reports of the sermon and the videotape surfaced in Milan-based center-right daily Libero. "Uttering anti-Semitic sermons that explicitly incite to violence and sectarian hatred is not acceptable," Alfano said. "May my decision in this case be of warning to all those who think you can preach hatred in Italy". The Muslim community in the Veneto region approved of the minister's decision. "Islam is a religion on peace. Those who preach death must not be allowed inside the mosques," said Bouchaib Tanji, who is the president of the Veneto Islamic Federation and of the Assalam (Peace) association.
Here is the sermon that got the Imam expelled.

UK Bank Sanctions Terrorist

But it wasn't because of the UK government enforcing the law as in when the US freezes a terrorists assets through the Department of Treasury OFAC. It was due to the banks enforcing terrorist designations despite the governments failure to do so.

In late July, HSBC, a British multinational bank, closed the bank accounts of Anas Al-Tikriti, a prominent British Islamist activist, and his family. HSBC also closed down the bank accounts of the Cordoba Foundation, of which Tikriti is the Director, and the Finsbury Park Mosque.

In response to enquiries, the bank simply stated that to continue providing services would be outside the bank's "risk appetite."

This latest round of bank account closures has come as a surprise to counter-terrorism experts and much of the media, who note that the Cordoba Foundation and the Finsbury Park Mosque have enjoyed strong political support in the past.

Just a few weeks previously, HSBC also closed the accounts of the Ummah Welfare Trust, a leading British Islamist charity that has previously partnered with the Al Salah Islamic Association, described by the U.S. Treasury Department as "one of the largest and best-funded Hamas charitable organisations in the Palestinian territories." Senior Hamas officials have confirmed that Al Salah is "identified with us."

Anas Al-Tikriti, a senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood in Britain, had his bank account, along with that of his wife and two children, shut down by HSBC. Tikriti has been described as "one of the shrewdest UK-based Brotherhood activists … [who] has sought to persuade Western governments that they should fund Brotherhood groups as moderate alternatives to al-Qaeda."

Tikriti is also a vocal supporter of the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas, and he has regularly hosted a program on the Arab TV satellite station, Al-Hiwar, founded by Azzam Tamimi, Hamas's "special envoy" to the UK. Tamimi, in 2004, told the BBC that he would become a suicide bomber if he "had the opportunity," and described self-sacrifice for Palestine as "a noble cause."

Anas Al Tikriti (far left), a vocal supporter of Hamas, has met with President Obama. (See Picture)

In an interview with the Muslim Brotherhood's official website after the 2003 invasion of Iraq, Tikriti affirmed "the right of the Iraqis to engage in legitimate resistance against foreign occupation." He also has stated that the decision by the Muslim Council of Britain to boycott Holocaust Memorial Day was a "principled stand."

In response to HSBC's closure of his bank account, Tikriti claimed that, "HSBC has targeted my family because of my activity in defence of Gaza against the barbaric aggression of the Zionists" and because of his efforts to "oppose the military coup in Egypt."

While many would dispute Tikriti's conclusions, his instincts might be right. The one thing that connects Tikriti with the Cordoba Foundation, the Finsbury Park Mosque and the Ummah Welfare Trust is evidence of their support for the Muslim Brotherhood and the designated terrorist group, Hamas.

Thanks to The Lid via , I can't wait to say this,

Stable Hand!

Teh awesome!

Dueling Atrocities

Yesterday a defector from the Assad regime called Caesar released a report on the Assad's regime, its eliminating its opponents on an industrial scale.

At Hospital 601, not far from the presidential palace in Damascus, Syrian guards ran out of space to store the dead and had to use an adjoining warehouse where military vehicles were repaired.

A forensic photographer working for Syria's military police walked the rows and took pictures of the emaciated and disfigured corpses, most believed to be anti-Assad activists. Numbers written on the bodies and on white cards, the photographer said, told regime bureaucrats the identities of the deceased, when they died and which branch of the Syrian security services had held them.

U.S. investigators who have reviewed many of the photos say they believe at least 10,000 corpses were cataloged this way between 2011 and mid-2013. Investigators believe they weren't victims of regular warfare but of torture, and that the bodies were brought to the hospital from the Assad regime's sprawling network of prisons. They were told some appeared to have died on site.

The report comes complete with graphic images of the dead and highlighted evidence of torture. And Assad's forces to torture. I've seen videos of them chopping off wounded Jihadi's fingers and general abuse of corpses and the living. I've seen Assad's forces dumping Jihadi bodies by the dozen into ravines and rivers. In general they are pretty brutal..

The full report is here(pdf). And embedded her at the Guardian.


What a coincidence ISIS is also killing on an industrial scale and yesterday released a new video to prove just how efficient their genocide against the Iraqi Shia can be.

Near the end they are killing people and pushing them into the river. I guess to poison the water down stream. The dock they push the victims from is soaked in blood.






Q: So which side is worse?

A: Both.

Update: More at Gateway Pundit.

ISIS supporters cheered the bloody massacre video.

The comments on YouTube were overwhelmingly positive. One supporter called the massacre a “most beautiful Christmas bonus (present).” Another supporter praised the massacre with, “Allahu Akbar!”

Mormons Riot, Kill Woman & Baby Over "Book of Mormon: The Musical" Blasphemy

Yeah, I know, but if you can think of some other way to snark this without recycling the obvious joke then please feel free to start your own blog:

Rioting erupted as rumours spread that a young Ahmadi man, identified as Saqib, shared a blasphemous picture on Facebook, Pakistan Today reported.

It allegedly included the Kaaba — the cuboid building at the centre of the Grand Mosque in Mecca that Muslims face in prayer – and contained nudity.

A mob reportedly gathered outside Saqib’s house and started protesting.

When they moved to a doctor’s house where Ahmadis were thought to be hiding, someone inside reportedly shot at the mob and injured the man who had started the Facebook rumour.

The group then set five Ahmadi houses on fire, killing the woman and children and injuring several others.

Since these are Ahmadis being murdered in the name of the Religion of Peace, Ahmadis consider themselves Muslim, but some Sunni Muslims do not, then maybe the better headline analogy would be something like, "Mormon Woman and Baby Murdered by Presbyterians Riots for Blasphemous Facebook Post"?

In any event, you get the picture.

Cutting Through the Crap

As many of you know the media campaign against Israel by Hamas supporters has been plagued by recycled images posted as if they are happening today.

I think many Hamas propagandists and Israel haters don't really care that they are spinning lies, half truths and recycled images of other conflicts as "atrocities" committed against the Palestinians in the ongoing conflict.

I think they know they are inciting hatred with lies, they just don't care.

But for those of us interested in accuracy this presents a problem, not only in the Israel vs Hamas conflict but in other conflicts. Last week ISIS demanded that Christians in Mosul either pay the Jizya, flee or die. Various interviews of Christian fleeing Mosul indicted that ISIS was not only forcing them to feel, but robbing the refugees and also helping themselves to their property before blowing up their houses.

A copy of the Fatwa directing Christians to flee added some other details, for instance that ISIS had ordered all women in the area to undergo Female Genital Mutilation. The pact looked authentic and has many details of the Dhimmi pact that made sense as well as the ISIS logo. It turn out it was a fake probably circulated by Iran.

Well now there is an attempt to crowd source the effort to separate fact from fiction, a website called CITIZEN EVIDENCE LAB has been started by Amnesty International so that people can submit images and videos and they others can help fact check or find the original origin of these videos and images.

Its like an automated Dr. Rusty Shackleford.

A worthwhile project for sure. So well see how it work out. Hopefully it will help us cut through the fog of propaganda and get more accurate reports on what comes from where.

Obama's Regime Change in Libya Goes to Sh*t

Getting rid of Gaddafi, seemed like a good idea at the time. I mean after we turned him into ally of sorts, then we turned on him and gave Libya to al-Qaeda.


The US says it has temporarily evacuated its staff from the Libyan capital Tripoli over security concerns.

Staff, including marine guards providing security to the embassy, have been transferred to Tunisia "due to the ongoing violence resulting from clashes between Libyan militias," it adds.

Secretary of State John Kerry said there was a "real risk" to staff.

It comes amid fierce clashes between rival militias in the capital, with intense fighting at Tripoli airport.

I mean is there any other way to describe the current situation in Libya. We all talk about how dangerous it is that ISIS has taken territory in Iraq that can be used to train terrorists and attack the west. Libya has been like that every since Obama pushed Gaddafi off the edge.

But "at this point what does it really matter."

I'm reading a lot of pundits that say doesn't Obama even care or notice these foreign policy problems exploding. Because you really can't say that he appears upset.

This reminds me of his youth in Indonesia, his mother wrote that he was constantly teased by the Indonesian boys for being black and that his mom was divorced from his father. Yes Indonesian kids were racist against the young black Obama. They noticed the black a lot more than the mixed, even though probably their skin tone is probably not more than a shade apart.

I bring this up because his mother noted how he could take it, how he could ignore the cruelty being thrown at him and appear to be aloof and happy despite the hardship. How he could withdraw from his tormentors and be happy on his own or with just a few friends, discarding the "bad".

This is a pretty admirable quality in Obama really. Its a toughness.

But in the current situation it people just can't get why he's not tore up.

But I'm not so sure showing the world how much we don't give a f*ck we can really dish out really isn't a pretty good idea.

ISIS takes half of Iraq, we don't give a f*ck. Russia takes Ukriane, we don't give a f*ck.

I mean if it wasn't for the ethnic cleansing and genocide against Christians in the war torn Muslim world I could almost not give a F8ck.

Anyway your thoughts on the We Don't Give Even Half a F*ck strategy in comments.

Islamic State of Syria and Just Plain Stupid Orders Mannequins To Wear Hijab

Because, you now the Muj have been out on the trail for a long time and we don't want them, um temped.

ISIS has ordered shopkeepers in the Iraqi city of Mosul to cover the faces of mannequins, The Associated Press reported Tuesday.

The Sunni extremist group recently declared a caliphate – or Islamic State - covering parts of Syria and Iraq. Shop owners in Mosul said they had been told to cover the faces of male and female mannequins, apparently in line with strict interpretations of Shariah law that forbid statues or artwork depicting the human form.

You know why I'm in this now don't you, I mean the Muj are nothing if not entertaining.

Meanwhile, in Benghazi

No word on which YouTube video is to blame:

Islamist militants attacked an army base in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi on Monday, triggering fierce clashes involving helicopters and jets that killed at least seven people and wounded 40 others, residents and security sources said.

The violence followed a week of fighting between rival militias for control of Tripoli International Airport in the capital that has prompted the North Africa country to appeal for international help to stop Libya becoming a failed state.

Tripoli was calmer on Monday, but in Benghazi, militants linked to Islamist group Ansar al-Sharia attacked an army camp and were repelled by troops and forces loyal to renegade retired general Khalifa Haftar, who has been carrying out a self-declared war on Islamist fighters, security sources said.

CAIR Dumps Pretense And Posts Dead Babies in Support of Hamas

First about CAIR:

In 2008, the FBI discontinued its long-standing relationship with CAIR. Officials said the decision followed the conviction of the HLF directors for funneling millions of dollars to Hamas, revelations that Nihal Awad had participated in planning meetings with HLF, and CAIR's failure to provide details of its ties to Hamas.[59][60] During a 2008 retrial of the HLF case, FBI Special Agent Lara Burns labeled CAIR "a front group for Hamas."[61] In January 2009, the FBI's DC office instructed all field offices to cut ties with CAIR, as the ban extended into the Obama administration.[62]
Of course this week Nihal Awad was all over the Tee Vee whining about the NSA monitoring his communications, claiming he is as pure as the driven snow and the NSA was only motivated by the fact that he's Muslim.

So there is reason to think CAIR might be supporting Hamas, which is a specially declared terrorist entity as declared by the US dept of Treasury.

Today CAIR dropped the pretense and joined in the dead baby porn hate campaign that Hamas and its supporters are running against Israel.

Apparently CAIR thinks the news media is not printing enough dead Palestinian babies. But I've seen most if not all of the images and videos in their post.

Its little more than propagation of Hamas propaganda.

Israel Damned If They Do Damned If They Don't


Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, meanwhile, convened an emergency meeting of his Cabinet on Wednesday to discuss the crisis.

"This war is not against Hamas or another political party, but it is against the Palestinian people," he told the media afterward. "What do you call this crime? What is this crime known under international law? To kill entire families, is this collective punishment?

"This is called collective genocide."

The problem is that entire families are putting themselves at harms risk on purpose. Then when they are killed , the Palestinians point their one hand at Israel, while out the other side of their mouth they praise those willing to sacrifice themselves as human shields.


Also note the double standard, Hamas says any Israeli is a legitimate target, all of them. Civilians, mothers, babies. Whatever. Killing Jews is Halal you see.

But when one of them dies, oh my. Then the double narrative starts, calling it murder when at the same time praising the so called martyrs.

You have to watch the Prince of Lies. He's got you coming and going. You just have to stand up for yourself. And Israel is almost the last nation willing to stand against Islamic terrorists. Because they have little choice other than to defend themselves.

While we on the other hand, our President can Play pool while Rome burns and call for "restraint".

Lets face it, the west is screwed, unless it gets its act together very soon.

It seems to me that this has escalated very quickly, and sometimes I think every death in Israel is seen as political. Sometimes a murder or kidnapping is just that. But in the context of the conflict, we in the west are lucky enough to have the time and space to question these things. Whereas in Israel the dress rehearsal for the destruction of their nation is always on.

My whole life there has always been an Israel, with its current borders for the most part, what it has not given away recently for "peace". And the Palestinians have always been idiots, consumed with recovering a past that never existed. Always more concerned with hate and destruction than with making themselves a better future in spite of most of the world's wishes for them.

I and I think a lot of the world would support and help them, but those helping or supporting them can count on two things, the Palestinians Jew hatred screwing it up and a knife in the back. Its not worth helping them when they won't help themselves.

I'm pretty worried that rather than the usual ass whoppoin dealt out by the Israelis followed by a Hudna or peaceful period in which the Palestinians lick their wounds, I'm worried that this time it may indeed spin out of control.

To the North Lebanon and Syria are a mess, to the south, Egypt to the East Jordan is the last bastion of stability, but ISIS is eyeing Jordan from Iraq.

WWIII is about 13 years old now and it shows no signs of fading. Can we call it WWIII yet? I should think so, there's few parts of the world not affected by some sort of conflict with Islamic terrorists. The only reason we won't call it that is our own sensitivity about religion. We don't want to credit radical Islam with the power it currently holds. How long can we afford this denial?

It seems to me this could all go to sh*t for lack of a better term any time. I hope not. I've been raising alarms about Islamic terrorism and its doctrine being spread on the internet for some time. I was called alarmist, Zionist and an Islamophobe.

But now, after all this, the bud of terrorism has indeed bloomed while western freedom and liberty wilts away.

Liberals Explain that Current Fascist Tobacco Policy Really UnFascist

The Atlantic:

Under Nazi rule, Germany launched the first and most broadly reaching anti-smoking campaign of modern times. Smoking was discouraged in the workplace, and banned in cinemas, and in schools. Policemen and servicemen could not smoke in uniform, and it was not permitted to sell women cigarettes in cafes and other public places. Advertising tobacco products was restricted.

“Nazi officials moved aggressively in an all-out campaign against cigarette smoking in which tobacco was proclaimed ‘an enemy of the people,’” according to Proctor. Hitler frequently pointed out that he had quit smoking in 1919, and that fellow fascists Mussolini and Franco were also non-smokers, unlike Allied enemies Churchill, Stalin, and Roosevelt.

In true fascist fashion, warnings against smoking often featured Hitler himself, according to Proctor, with statements such as “Brother national socialist, do you know that your Fuhrer is against smoking and thinks that every German is responsible to the whole people for all his deeds and omissions, and does not have the right to damage his body with drugs?”

But banning smoking and E-cigs and large sugary snacks and white bread these days, totally unfascist.
Proctor is quick to say he does not mean to argue that it should in any way be celebrated. “The fear may be that by acknowledging such a work, one might somehow give credence to Nazi ideals or policy,” he says. “My intention is not to argue that today's anti-tobacco efforts have fascist roots, or that public health measures are in principle totalitarian.” However, he does conclude that “the Nazi campaign against tobacco was as fascist as the yellow stars and the death camps.”
Nah its the same, but you know, different. Like 7-Up is the uncola recent anti smoking and anti drug laws are unfascist.

Because surely a liberal nanny state can't be the same as the National Socialist Workers nanny state. It just can't.

I know my logic here is pretty bad. But but but.

Good News: al Qaeda So on the Run That US Warns of Airplane, Airport Bomb Plots

Two separate warnings today. First, a very specific threat of an attack in Uganda:

The U.S Embassy has received information from the Uganda Police Force (UPF) that according to intelligence sources there is a specific threat to attack Entebbe International Airport by an unknown terrorist group today, July 3rd, between the hours of 2100-2300. Individuals planning travel through the airport this evening may want to review their plans in light of this information.

U.S. Embassy Kampala wishes to remind U.S. citizens of the continued threat of potential terrorist attacks in the country. The targets for these attacks could include hotels, restaurants, nightclubs, shopping malls, diplomatic missions, transportation hubs, religious institutions, government offices, or public transportation.

And a more vague threat on airplanes elsewhere:
Security is tightening this morning at some overseas airports with direct flights to the U.S. because of concerns about al Qaeda's efforts to create an undetectable bomb, as well as the threat of Western militants trained in the Middle East.

Former CIA deputy director Mike Morell, now a CBS News analyst, said on "CBS This Morning" that the biggest threat would be those Western militants -- currently fighting in Syria -- joining forces with al Qaeda in Yemen, which has the unique capability to produce nonmetallic bombs.

Now that we've left Iraq and are "focused like a laser beam on al Qaeda", how's that working out for us?

Good News! al-Nusra Joins ISIS Umbrella

Channel News Asia:

Al-Qaeda's Syrian offshoot issued a loyalty pledge on Wednesday to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant at a tinderbox town on the Iraqi border, a monitor said.

The merger is significant as it opens the way for ISIL to take control of both sides of the border at Albu Kamal in Syria and Al-Qaim in Iraq, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

ISIL -- which aspires to create an Islamic state that straddles Iraq and Syria -- has spearheaded a lightning jihadist offensive that has captured swathes of territory north and west of Baghdad this month.

After months of clashes between the two sides, Al-Qaeda's official Syrian arm the Al-Nusra Front "pledged loyalty to ISIL" in Albu Kamal, said Observatory director Rami Abdel Rahman.

"The pledge comes amid advances by ISIL in Deir Ezzor province" in eastern Syria on the Iraqi border, Abdel Rahman told AFP.

An ISIL jihadist confirmed the reports on Twitter, and posted a photograph showing an Egyptian Al-Nusra Front commander shaking hands with a ISIL leader of Chechen origin.

Can we nuke them now? Or do we wait till they get to Amman?

US Cuts Off Nose to Spite Its Face in Afghanistan

We deserve to lose, don't we?

A legendary Special Forces commander was quietly forced to leave the U.S. Army after he admitted to a love affair with a Washington Post war correspondent, who quit her job to secretly live with him for almost a year in one of the most dangerous combat outposts in Afghanistan.

U.S. Army Special Operations Command never publicly disclosed that highly-decorated Green Beret Major Jim Gant was relieved of command at the end of a harrowing 22 months in combat in March 2012.

By the time he was yanked out of Afghanistan two years later because of his relationship with Tyson, Gant also had won over three Pashtun tribes with substantial influence throughout Kunar province. Top commanders had tasked him with turning the tide of a conflict America was losing, and in his corner of the war, Gant was winning.

When you have a winner, you back him.

Cornhole Watch: Kassim Alhimidi 26 Years to Life

We pray that Kassim keeps running his mouth thereby guaranteeing that his 26 years to life ends up being life.

A California judge sentenced an Iraqi immigrant Monday to 26 years-to-life in prison for his wife's fatal beating — an attack that initially drew international condemnation when authorities believed it was a hate crime.


The couple's oldest daughter, Fatima, found Shaima Alawadi, 32, in a pool of blood on the kitchen floor of their home in 2012 in El Cajon, a San Diego suburb that is home to the second-largest Iraqi population in the United States.

She died at a hospital two days later after suffering multiple fractures to her skull.

... Alhimidi will have to serve 26 years actual time before he is eligible for a parole hearing, but he will get credit for time already served since his November 2012 arrest.

Apparently Kassim would have rather been put to death that stay in prison, he offered to donate his organs. Well maybe, just maybe, one of the inmates will help him out.

But I kinda like that he's getting what he doesn't want. I'm also glad this is the very last time Kassim will appear on this blog.

American Flag a Threat to Muslims?

Keep your Flag Mr. Tran, its teh awesome!

KHOU: WEBSTER, Texas -- A Webster man says his apartment complex manager told him his American flag was a “threat to the Muslim community,” and that he has to take it down. But he’s not giving up without a fight.

Stepping onto Duy Tran's balcony in Webster, one thing is clear: "It means a lot to me," he said.

He's talking about his American flag that he proudly put up when he moved in just a few days ago. But then an apartment manager at the Lodge on El Dorado told him he had to take it down.

"What really stunned me is that she said it’s a threat towards the Muslim community,” said Tran. “I’m not a threat toward anybody."

Awesome: Qatar Gave US Supplied Stinger Missiles to Taliban

If true, this is ... pretty damning:

My sources in the US Special Operations community believe the Stinger fired against the Chinook [in Afghanistan in 2012] was part of the same lot the CIA turned over to the ­Qataris in early 2011, weapons Hillary Rodham Clinton’s State Department intended for anti-Khadafy forces in Libya.

They believe the Qataris delivered between 50 and 60 of those same Stingers to the Taliban in early 2012, and an additional 200 SA-24 Igla-S surface-to-air missiles.

Qatar now is expected to hold five Taliban commanders released from Guantanamo for a year before allowing them to go to Afghanistan.

Sure, let's trust these people. Oh, and on a very related note:
The deepest concerns of critics of President Obama’s decision to release five Taliban commanders from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba in exchange for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl may be coming to fruition.

One of the commanders, Noorullah Noori, has plans to return to Afghanistan to resume fighting against the U.S., according to NBC News which spoke to another Taliban commander.

“After arriving in Qatar, Noorullah Noori kept insisting he would go to Afghanistan and fight American forces there,” the commander told NBC News.

So, we have that to look forward to.

70 Years

Is a long time. I recently lost my hero, a WWII vet of the Pacific campaign, his brother, who fought and survived the liberation of France, died long ago at home on his couch.


They really were the greatest generation. As a young person, I recall there was nothing they couldn't do. Nothing was ever too hard.

We were so blessed to have had them. They will be sorely missed.

So for those of you who still have yours, cherish them. Time waits for no one.

Big Brother Goes Along For The Ride

You knew it was coming, might want to hang on that not so smart car, forever.

To get back to the speed limit helper thing. Using GPS, the car knows when you’re “speeding” — every single time you “speed.” This is easily done by comparing your velocity at any given moment with the posted limit on that road, which info the car downloads continuously via the GPS. The data about your “speeding” can be recorded — and transmitted.

Add a dash of insurance mafia lust to rifle your pockets — and your legal inability to tell them to piss off. You cannot — by law — say “no” to insurance. You must buy it. And they will tell you how much you’ll pay.

... Real-time dunning for every single instance of “speeding.” Perhaps by the insurance mafia — perhaps by the government. From our point of view, it amounts to the same thing.

Driving is about to become a bunch more expensive — and whole lot less fun.

Drug Cartels In Texas


Thanks to Obama's open borders and weak immigration laws, drug cartels are not only operating in our southern border states, but they are confident enough to threaten U.S. law enforcement:

EL PASO, Texas -- El Paso police are investigating two mysterious billboards that appeared just off I-10, each with a mannequin hanging from a noose.

"It's not an advertisement," said Mike Mons, regional manager for Lamar Outdoor advertising.

The first vandalized billboard off I-10 had Plata o Plomo in large black letters which translates into silver or lead. It is usually a warning targeting police or government officials in Mexico. The warning: work with a cartel and take a bribe or get a bullet.

Why the cartels are even bothering to threaten is beyond me. With the Obama Administration's border rules, border patrol agents are ordered to run away rather than confront illegals.

Iran Does Right Thing Stops Happy Song

There's, you know, a lot of outrage that some Iranians were arrested for making their own Happy video. Calling it un-Islamic.

I don't know about that but if I hear that f*cking song one more time I'm going to issue a Fatwa on my own ass.

Its the worst, most repeated piece of crap since the Macarena.

Everyone Wave Buh Bye to Kassim Alhimidi

EL CAJON, Calif. (AP) — An Iraqi immigrant convicted of beating his wife to death in what police initially believed was a hate crime could get life in prison at his sentencing scheduled for Thursday in San Diego County Superior Court.


Chaos broke out in the courtroom last month when Kassim Alhimidi was convicted of bludgeoning his wife with a tire iron at their El Cajon home in March 2012 because she planned to divorce him. Alhimidi wagged his finger and shook his head as the verdict was read, and his son was dragged from the courtroom while shouting out that his father was innocent.

Their eldest daughter, then 17, found Shaima Alawadi, 32, in a pool of blood on the kitchen floor. She died two days later.

A sliding glass door was shattered and a note found nearby read: "This is my country, go back to yours, you terrorist."

Investigators initially suspected the attack was a hate crime before determining that the note was a photocopy — possibly of a note found outside the family home a week earlier by one of the couple's five children.

Prosecutors told the San Diego County jury during a two-week trial that Alhimidi was distraught over his wife's plans to leave him and had urged his children and relatives to get her to stay. Detectives found documents in Alawadi's car indicating she planned to seek a divorce, and the eldest daughter, Fatima, told investigators that her mother wanted to move to Texas to be with her sister.

After the attack, Alhimidi went to the hospital, touched his wife as she lay unconscious in bed, and apologized to her, prosecutor Kurt Mechals said. An uncle of the children who was present told authorities that Alhimidi then turned to him and said that if his wife woke up, she might try to say that he had attacked her.

Tsk tsk tsk.

Updated 05/16/14: The sentencing was delayed until June 23. Bummer.

entencing has been delayed by more than a month for an Iraqi immigrant convicted of the beating death of his wife in what police initially believed was a hate crime.

A San Diego Superior Court judge rescheduled sentencing Thursday....
