Insane Moonbat Horde Invades DC

Posted by Dave Blount at 5:15 PM

Peacenik moonbats converged on DC over the weekend, displaying their pathology for all to see. Age of Hooper returned from the spectacle with pictures and video that will scar the psyche of any decent person who lays eyes on them, so be warned. A few samples:

Bob Dougherty's Home Depot–Induced Diabetes Acts Up

Posted by Dave Blount at 4:26 PM

As announced in a press release sent out by his lawyer, Bob Dougherty was rushed to a Boulder hospital in a diabetic coma last weekend. It's a relief to hear that he's now "doing okay."

According to a pending lawsuit, Dougherty's diabetes, as well as his nightmares, insomnia, and post-traumatic stress disorder, were caused by Home Depot. Dougherty was availing himself of the facilities in a Louisville store when he discovered that some prankster had glued his rear end to the toilet seat. Paramedics had to unbolt the toilet seat while it was still attached to his behind.

Home Depot is to blame for this, supposedly, because employees at first thought his pleas for help were a hoax. How this could have caused his diabetes is unclear. Where's John Edwards when you need him?

Rush Sets Record Straight on "Phony Soldier" Ambush

Posted by Dave Blount at 12:32 PM

Remember the John Kerry wannabe Jesse Adam Macbeth, who invented extravagant tales of U.S. atrocities in Iraq, only to be found guilty of falsifying his military record? He claimed to have witnessed first hand the iniquities of the American soldiers Senator Durbin compares to Nazis and communists, allegedly including hanging burned bodies in mosques and routinely executing children. In actuality, Macbeth didn't make it through boot camp at Fort Benning.

Transcripts of Macbeth's phony allegations were translated into Arabic, and distributed via the Internet to help motivate terrorists. Also, he cheated the taxpayers out of $10,400 by claiming to have post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of his imaginary military career. Here's his Wikipedia bio.

Rush Limbaugh has accurately dismissed this cockroach as a "phony soldier." Either viciously lying or willfully divorced from reality, Senate Democrats — including Hanoi John Kerry — have seized on this to accuse Rush of maligning our troops.

Ersatz war hero Kerry has himself repeatedly insulted American troops, falsely accusing them of outlandish war crimes in Vietnam, of being losers and idiots, and of breaking into Iraqi homes "in the dead of night" to terrorize women and children. The hypocrisy of this traitor chastising Rush, who has never been anything but supportive of the military, would seem to be too extreme for even the most shameless Democrats.

As always, the Dems are counting on their mindless followers to be so tightly enveloped in the bubble of misinformation constructed by the liberal media as to have no clue as to the actual situation.

The dinosaur media and scoundrels like Kerry went running with some propaganda spat up by Media Matters, showing little if any interest in what Rush actually said or why he said it. Here's Rush setting the record straight:

Shrillary Proposes $5,000 Handout for Being Born

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:56 AM

If you think W spends like a drunken sailor, wait until Hillary Clinton moves back into the White House. Apparently she swiped her latest plan for giving away our money from the leftists at Time magazine. It calls for federal $5,000 payments to every baby who makes it past the abortionist.

Shrillary floated this notion while pandering to the Congressional Black Caucus, where the idea of being given other people's money just for existing predictably resonated. She didn't offer any idea of how much the program would cost (a lot), or how it would be paid for (still more excessive taxation).

According to Shrillary, we don't save because we can't afford to. I wonder why, with government vampires sucking half the blood from our veins so they can buy votes from the unproductive.

Environmentalist Bureaucrats Are Bad for the Environment

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:27 AM

It's a good thing manmade global warming isn't real, because if it were, the meddling of politically correct bureaucrats would be making it worse.

According to Nobel prize–winning chemist Paul J. Crutzen, most crops grown in the U.S. and Europe to make "green" fuel should actually increase global warming. The plants could produce up to 70% more greenhouse gases than conventional diesel, due to the nitrous oxide released by fertilizers.

Remarks Professor Keith Smith, coauthor of Crutzen's report:

As it's used at the moment, bioethanol from maize seems to be a pretty futile exercise.

In other global warming news, environmentalist restrictions on drilling for natural gas are making it difficult for power plants to transition from allegedly polar bear–oppressing coal. According to the National Petroleum Council, an estimated 79 trillion cubic feet of recoverable gas is going to waste beneath U.S. waters where drilling is banned, and 69 trillion cubic feet of off-limits gas is held in the Rocky Mountain region.

Attempting to cut greenhouse gas emissions without allowing this natural gas to be extracted will naturally drive up prices, inflicting a burden on all of us. But our economic hardship is a small price for bureaucrats to pay for their trendy green posturing.

The Bay Area puts its stamp on everything it touches. For example, snacks from Oakland-based Tainted Inc. come laced with marijuana.

Drugged foods include chocolate-covered pretzels, candy bars, cookies, marshmallow pies, ice cream, peanut butter, jelly, and even barbecue sauce. Laced snacks are reportedly more potent than smoked marijuana.

Tainted Inc. has used medical marijuana laws to justify its product line. However, DEA authorities aren't buying it. Four Bay Area houses have been raided in addition to the factory, and several arrests made.

Michigan's Excessive Deposit Law Leads to Fraud

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:30 AM

Michigan's exorbitant 10¢ per can deposit mandate has resulted in some enterprising crooks — apparently inspired by a Seinfeld episode — to smuggle in millions of out-of-state cans.

Authorities seized more than $500,000 in cash from the operation. According to Michigan State Police director Colonel Peter Munoz:

Each year, this type of activity defrauds the state [of] approximately $13 million.

As we have seen again and again with welfare and healthcare, wherever government intrudes, there will be large-scale fraud. At least somebody besides bureaucrats, lawyers, and shiftless layabouts benefit from the relentless growth of government: criminals do too. Unfortunately this adds still more to encroaching socialism's already outlandish costs.

Moonbats Campaign Against Hygiene

Posted by Dave Blount at 12:35 PM

Actress Cate Blanchett, who reportedly is helping to save the planet by no longer washing her hair, has insisted that the plumbing in her new mansion be constructed so that the inhabitants can drink their own wastewater.

This fits with Sheryl Crow's admonition that we should use only one square of toilet paper, and Drew Barrymore's announcement that she "took a poo in the woods hunched over like an animal" outside some crude Third-World village and found the experience "awesome."

As Mark Steyn notes:

[T]here's something very curious about a culture whose most beautiful [sic] women, the beneficiaries of every blessing this bountiful society can shower upon them, are so eager to flaunt their bodily waste in the public prints. And even more bizarre is their conviction that one of the most basic building blocks of modern life — hygiene — is now an example of Western consumerist excess.

Hygiene is what allows us not to waste a great deal of our time dying of nasty diseases like dysentery. But the Tinseltown campaign against it makes perfect sense in terms of moonbattery's penultimate desire: the dissolution of civilization. Beyond that there's only one thing left for progressives to progress toward: the end of the human race.

Red Cross Provides Support for Racist Jena 6 Marchers

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:35 AM

It seems that all's fair in love and moonbattery — even things that are unfair in war. Snopes confirms that the Red Cross has been supplying marchers in Jena, Louisiana with supplies.

The very symbol of the Red Cross signifies political neutrality, protecting its vehicles from attack in wartime. The organization is there to provide disaster relief, not to take sides.

But this doesn't apply in Jena, to which anti-Caucasian demagogue Jesse Jackson summoned an army of cockroaches to swarm over the town in protest not against six black thugs for beating a lone white guy unconscious and leaving him for dead, but against the authorities for arresting them.

Bottled water for troublemaking moonbats bused in from Detroit was paid for using "existing disaster relief funds," per the Red Cross itself — although in an astonishing display of gall, it has asked Louisiana taxpayers for reimbursement.

Verizon's NARAL Flip-Flop

Posted by Dave Blount at 2:28 PM

If there's one organization that any morally sane person could identify as not just wrongheaded but satanic, it's NARAL (formerly known as National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws). Among its priorities is forcing people who regard abortion as murder to finance the abortions of those who consider it a convenient way to get rid of unwanted babies. It opposes banning the nightmarish procedure known as partial-birth abortion, in which a baby is partially delivered before being gruesomely murdered by having scissors jammed into his or her skull.

Considering that until today it had a policy against distributing text messages on controversial topics, it's not surprising that Verizon balked at providing this service for NARAL. But even less surprising is the way Verizon instantly caved when the left-wing media started to holler.

More disturbing than NARAL witches texting high-fives to each other for all the babies they help kill is the mentality to which Verizon so quickly capitulated. Art Brodsky sums it up, writing for HuffPo before Verizon's reversal:

At some point, responsible leadership is going to have to wake up and realize that a private company's discretion is no substitute for public standards. It might be a good idea for the FCC to spell out what rights they think consumers still have, and for Congress to make its own judgments. Discretion has its limits.

In other words, don't make liberals angry, or it will be the State that determines what can or cannot be communicated.

Personally I don't agree with Verizon regulating the content of text messages. But those who are upset about it can always take their business elsewhere. The only censor that matters is the government, which by definition (a monopoly on force) does not allow competition.

Libs don't even need to pass legislation. Just the threat of it can effect a Finlandization of private companies, as when unscrupulous goons in the Senate (including Reid, Schumer, and Durbin) threatened to pull ABC's broadcast license over Path to 9/11 because parts of it depicted Bill Clinton in an accurate but unfavorable light. As a result, three minutes of the movie were cut, and the much-anticipated DVD has not been released.

Even Bloomberg Aghast at Spitzer's Irresponsibility

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:52 AM

Not even Michael Bloomberg is enough of a moonbat to be pleased by New York Governor Eliot Spitzer's plan to pander to illegal aliens by granting them drivers licenses.

Homeland Security has been urging states to tighten their identification standards for the sake of our safety, to which Spitzer responded with a one-finger salute. Ever Bloomers, no enemy of illegal immigrants, is annoyed that a New York drivers license will cease to be valid identification. For example, New Yorkers will be required to use passports to get on an airplane.

Bloomie frets:

I'm really skeptical that we should be issuing driver's licenses willy-nilly, because it then leads to lots of other problems in terms of voter registration and other things. But it's the governor's call.

Spitzer replied in his trademark rabid pit bull style:

[Bloomberg] is wrong at every level — dead wrong, factually wrong, legally wrong, morally wrong, ethically wrong.

The Governor must think there are an awful lot of illegal alien voters out there. Maybe he was inspired by the way Slick Willie pardoned FALN terrorists to help Shrillary get the Puerto Rican vote in her first Senate run.

Animals May Be Eligible for Welfare

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:15 AM

Moonbats in Austria are still at it, trying to get a chimpanzee legally defined as a person.

The chimp in question was brought into Austria for use in pharmaceutical research, but confiscated by authorities. It wound up at an animal shelter that has gone bankrupt, possibly because it costs €4,800 ($6,800) per month to house the animal.

Animal rights nuts are now headed to Austria's Supreme Court. They want the monkey declared a person so that a guardian can be appointed for it, ensuring that it won't "wind up homeless." I suspect this has something to do with the guardian collecting benefits on an animal's behalf.

Now a short lesson in moonbat taxonomy.

NY Times to Be Hoisted on Sarbox Petard?

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:37 AM

The Enron and WorldCom scandals provided moonbats with an opportunity to stick it to the capitalist system that makes our standard of living possible and that they so detest. They imposed the draconian Sarbanes-Oxley Act, which costs the business world $billions upon $billions per year to comply with absurdly extraneous punitive regulations. Even leftists like Nancy Pelousy and Schmuck Schumer admit that Sarbox burdens are excessive. But the quasi-Marxist New York Times loves it.

As American Thinker observes, the Gray Lady may get a taste of her own medicine. The recent debacle in which the Times granted a $77,508 discount to fellow moonbats at MoveOn.org on a disgraceful full-page ad sliming General Petraeus, admittedly in violation of its own policy, was an example of a "material weakness" in its internal controls. Sarbox-decreed punishments for not discovering such weaknesses and documenting them for the appropriate bureauweenies range up to 20 years in prison.

Jail punk would make a fitting second career for Times Publisher Pinch Sulzberger, don't you think?

The Gray Lady's blues don't end there. American Thinker also notes that Rupert Murdoch, who just acquired the Wall Street Journal, is already positioning himself to steal the Times' advertisers. Bankruptcy specialist Edward Altman devised the Z score to measure the risk of corporate bankruptcy. The lower the score, the more trouble a company is in. A score of 1.8 is "considered the upper bound of distress." WaPo's score is 4.118. The Times' score: 1.835. Time to start looking for a life raft.

Although Pinch is unfortunately unlikely to wind up in jail, he's unlikely to be running the Times for long either. Any White Knight stepping in to save the sinking paper would need a whole lot of money and politics acceptable to the Sulzberger/Ochs family. Candidates include Michael Bloomberg, George Soros, and any number of people from Dubai.

Rosie O'Donnell's Middle Eastern Fan Club

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:56 PM

Rosie O'Donnell may have lost her soapbox on The View, but she still has a ready fan base — among Muslim terrorists.

WND Jerusalem bureau chief Aaron Klein conducted interviews with members of terror groups such as al-Qaeda, Hezbollah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades in researching his new book Schmoozing With Terrorists: From Hollywood to the Holy Land, Jihadists Reveal Their Global Plans to a Jew! Among his findings: Rosie's message resonates.

Enthuses Ala Senakreh of Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades:

I agree with what this O'Donnell says. … We welcome Rosie O'Donnell to stay among us and to get to know the truth from being here, like many American peace activists are doing.

(If you're wondering why peace activists would be interested in hanging out with homicidal maniacs, click here.)

Klein managed to assemble a group of terrorist leaders, but unfortunately neglected to get coordinates to the Air Force. He read them a series of Rosie's political statements, and found that the terrorists lapped them up like Democrat housewives.

On the topic of their pampered colleagues at Camp Gitmo, they agreed with Rosie that America "robs them of their humanity" and that American soldiers "torture them on a daily basis." They also approved of her assertion that we shouldn't fear them because they are mothers and fathers.

Gitmo vacationer Khalid Sheikh Mohammed admits to planning "the 9/11 operation from A to Z" and to beheading the Wall Street Journal's Daniel Pearl. Rosie bellowed to her zombified audience that the poor guy was tortured into making a false confession. Abu Jihad of Islamic Jihad concurs:

I am sure the Americans tortured Mohammed and forced him to say these untrue things.

Rosie's theory that Iran's kidnapping of 15 British sailors was actually a hoax perpetrated at the behest of the Bush Administration also found a receptive audience, as did her ravings about controlled demolitions at Ground Zero, supposedly intended to destroy documents incriminating to Enron and other evil corporations.

No doubt when Rosie gets another show, Ramadan Adassi of Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades will be a guest of honor. His heartfelt endorsement:

I agree with everything O'Donnell said. Regarding September 11, there is no way the American intelligence and administration was not aware of what was going to happen that day. How come the Jews and Israelis disappeared from the buildings? Was it by miracle? They knew that an attack would take place. This meant that Zionist elements and the leading elements of the administration who are aligned with economic companies and interests, like Bush and Cheney's companies of oil, were very interested that the attack would succeed in order to start their campaign for the oil of Iran and Afghanistan [sic].

If Rosie has a hard time finding another gig, she might try Al Jazeera. The audience would love her, and a burka would do wonders for her appearance. Of course, they might cut her head off if they find out she's a lesbian, but she'd still be no worse off. Remember: "Radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam in a country like America."

Burkas could have been designed with Rosie in mind — if they came with mouth plugs.

Michael Bloomberg Echoes Michael Moore

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:52 AM

Michael Moore is widely recognized as perhaps the most profoundly vile human being to acquire access to the public stage as a result of the abhorrent propaganda he spews. A particularly contemptible example is his infamous comparison of the terrorists killing our troops in Iraq with the Minutemen who helped found this country. Appallingly, we now hear this same obscene comparison from the Mayor of New York.

From the New York Post:

In his most detailed comments on the Iraq war, Mayor Bloomberg last night suggested the United States was in the same difficult position as the British in the Revolutionary War — facing a determined band of insurgents.
Bloomberg said the comparison occurred to him when he visited his mother recently and was driving through Lexington, Mass., where a scrubby group of farmers rose up against a well-trained militia more than 200 years ago.
"We're the British," the mayor said during an interview with Tom Brokaw at Cooper Union, part of a series featuring potential presidential contenders hosted by former Gov. Mario Cuomo.

The difference from Moore is that Mayor Mike speaks from idiocy rather than malice. Fortunately the conspicuousness of this idiocy will spare us all from any serious threat of a Bloomberg presidency. If only Hillary were dumb enough to make public comparisons between Islamic terrorists and the Minutemen.

DU Moonbats Stick Up for Mad Mahmoud

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:05 AM

Once again we see that hostility to America trumps all else for moonbats. No one could be more adamantly opposed to everything liberals claim to believe in than Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. But since he hates America, they're willing to propagandize on his behalf. Check out some of these howlers from a piece at Democratic Underground:

[Ahmadinejad] is an elected President, not a Dictator.
[Mad Mahmoud's potentially genocidal anti-Semitism is a] vicious cycle of hatred for which both sides bear the responsibility (Israelis, and Arab/Muslims).
[Oil mega-exporter] Iran has a legitimate need for electrical power. Nuclear is a logical step for them that avoids turning horrible pollution (already) in cities like Tehran into an even worse nightmare.
Islam itself was very progressive in its view of women[…]
Peaceful dialog is ultimately what is needed here… Bush should have met him at ground zero with the hand of peace[…]

The first reader comment:

Carter would have met him.

For once, I agree with a moonbat. Carter probably would have — right at Ground Zero too, to the delight of moonbats and Islamic terrorists all around the world.

Little Kid Investigated for Hate Crime After Getting Beaten by Adult

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:29 AM

After a 35-year-old woman beat a 10-year-old boy with an iron bar, police were quick to react — by investigating the little kid for hate crimes violations.

The woman, whose name apparently has been withheld to protect the guilty, is a Slovak. To the moonbats running Britain, this constitutes a separate race, so that little Jake Stedman's alleged suggestion that she "go back to her own country" is racism, the modern equivalent of witchcraft.

Jake stands to be the youngest Briton yet to be officially charged with racism.

Florida Dem Leader Denounces Other States as "Terrorist"

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:38 AM

Not long after 9/11, I heard a moonbat shouting through a megaphone at a Manhattan rally that having to pay for housing was a form of terrorism. The liberal concept of terrorism hasn't grown any less demented, to judge by Florida Senate Democratic Leader Steve Geller, who has denounced Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina as "terrorist rogue states."

Given that he's a Democrat, Geller's plan to punish these evil states is predictable: he wants to sue them.

The "rogue states" stand accused of being permitted by the DNC to select delegates before February 5, and of threatening penalties against Dem candidates who campaign in Florida.

Unhinged though Geller may be, he's astute enough to have this to say:

The Republicans are so lucky that they're running against the Democrats. With everything that's happening right now, we may be the only party they can beat … We'll find a way to shoot ourselves in the foot, which is what we're doing right now.

It's appreciated.

A little follow-up on the story of MSNBC brownshirt David Shuster browbeating Republican Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn again and again with her failure to remember the name of the last soldier from her district to be killed in Iraq.

When Shuster sprang his gotcha trap, he identified the soldier as Pvt. Jeremy Bohannon — who as it turns out is not from Blackburn's district. Next time Shuster, prepare a better ambush, so you won't have to go back on the air to apologize.

• Last month, he called the Larry Craig scandal a "moral insult" to Hurricane Katrina victims.
• Shuster collaborated with left-wing fabulist Jason Leopold to spread false stories about the Bush admin.
• Giving play to wild accusations of "voter intimidation" in the 2006 elections (in case GOP won them).
• Relying on skewed, left-wing sources, Shuster falsely predicted that Bush aide Karl Rove would be indicted in the Valerie Plame investigation.

Boulder Student Moonbats Protest Pledge of Allegiance

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:26 AM

Boulder High School's oxymoronically named club "Student Worker" is waging a righteous campaign against the religious oppression so prominent in their festering nest of moonbattery by protesting the Pledge of Allegiance.

They've called for students to walk out of class every Thursday at 8:30 when the pledge is recited over the intercom, and gather in the courtyard to recite their own moonbat version:

I pledge allegiance to the flag and my constitutional rights with which it comes. And to the diversity, in which our nation stands, one nation, part of one planet, with liberty, freedom, choice and justice for all.

Their main problem with the real pledge is the reference to God. As you can see, they have substituted their own god, "diversity." By "choice" I assume they mean abortion.

The club's president, 17-year-old constitutional scholar Emma Martens, holds that the words "on nation, under God" violate the First Amendment, which ironically enough was intended in part to protect our religious freedom.

For a liberal, Martens is quite open-minded. She thinks students who want to hear the real pledge should be allowed to go off to the auditorium and listen to it on their lunch break — just so long as moonbats don't have to hear it, which would qualify as "almost religious oppression," on a par with sprinkling holy water on a vampire.

Berkeley Moonbat Calls for Extinction of Human Race

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:50 PM

If anyone has failed to figure out the ultimate objective of liberalism taken to its logical conclusion, the Berkeley Daily Planet makes it plain — moonbats literally want to put an end to the human race:

The hour of judgment is at hand for our planet. Doom is knocking on our door in the form of catastrophic climate change. Global warming not only threatens our so-called way of life, it threatens the very existence of the planet itself! […]
The only real, long term hope for the eco-sphere is a massive human population collapse, hopefully leading to the voluntary extinction of the human race. Already, a new urgency and groundswell of support is building for the idea that humans are a type of super toxin which the planet cannot sustain or support in the longterm. Cogent support for the voluntary extinction of the human race is well-articulated in all its ramifications and implications here: www.vhemt.org.

The idea that humans are a toxin has a precedent in Kurt Vonnegut's assertion that humans are "a disease on the face of this planet." Vonnegut's juvenile tripe is considered literature on today's college campuses.

The city and residents of Berkeley should be on the leading vanguard of the voluntary extinction of the human race. First of all, if China can implement a very sensible one child policy in urban centers, Berkeley voters should approve an advisory No Child policy for residents of our city. It could be our answer to the Bush regime’s No Child Left Behind Act! Next, on the state level we need to rally support for a ballot initiative which allows us to die with dignity when we choose to. When this option is legally enacted, Berkeley should be the first city in California to open a euthanasia clinic. Hopefully, if we are true to our principles, our city’s residents will be lined up for many blocks waiting for their turn to be recycled into the earth!

Unfortunately, dead Democrats still vote. Just ask ACORN. Back to Berkeley:

Even before that time, younger readers of the Planet in particular should refrain from having children. Every person less makes a huge difference; a far bigger difference than using rapid transit, riding your bike or recycling bottles once you are born. Readers of the Planet who are already parents and grandparents should actively discourage further destructive procreation by their relatives. If pets need to be neutered and spayed by law, so should humans for many of the same reasons!
Imagine if Berkeley has the honor of becoming the first human ghost town on earth to revert to a primal state of nature!

True enough, if you believe the fashionable rhetoric regarding global warming, the only thing we could do about it would be cease to exist. Calling for human extinction is nothing new among moonbats. Katharine Jefferts Schori, as Presiding Bishop of the moonbatty Episcopal Church, encourages people not to have children for the sake of "stewardship of the earth." Author David Benatar has devoted an entire book to arguing that it would be better if humans didn't exist.

So get with the program, progressives. Stop reproducing.

San Francisco vs. the Marines Blackout

Posted by Dave Blount at 1:12 PM

A little follow-up on San Francisco's refusal to let the Marines film a commercial there:

American Thinker reports that other than Fox News, USA Today, and a local ABC station, the mainstream media has completely ignored the story.

Too bad, because it has some interesting hooks. The Marines were denied by Film Commission Executive Director Stefanie Coyote, who we learn has been a teamster and is married to barking moonbat Peter Coyote. When she got onto thin ice by firing Film Commission Deputy Director Michael Billington without cause, leftist screwball Sean Penn came running to offer her public support.

Odds of Ms. Coyote becoming the next Mayor of San Francisco would probably improve from the current 500 to 1 if the papers would give her dissing of the Marines a little publicity.

At least, by refusing to cover it, the liberals who run the media tacitly acknowledge that this story reveals something awful about them.

Dutch Name Deemed Offensive by DMV

Posted by Dave Blount at 12:03 PM

Mike and Shelly Udink and their son Kalei have vanity license plates reading UDINK1 UDINK2, and UDINK3. But then Kawika Udink's application for UDINK4 was rejected, and now the state of Oregon wants the other plates returned.

It seems their Dutch name might be read as "You dink." The various meanings of the word "dink" include a sexual reference and, worse still, a racial slur against Vietnamese.

So far the Udinks have not been ordered to change their name.

Jena 6 Fact Check

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:31 AM

Anyone buying the liberal spin that the Jena 6 thugs are somehow the victims might want to examine a few of the facts:

It was widely reported that [Jena 6 thug Mychal] Bell, now 17, was an honor student with no prior criminal record. Although he had a high grade-point average, he was, in fact, on probation for at least two counts of battery and a count of criminal damage to property. In any event, his conviction was overturned because an appeals court ruled he should not have been tried as an adult.[…]
_The so-called "white tree" at Jena High, often reported to be the domain of only white students, was nothing of the sort, according to teachers and school administrators; students of all races, they say, congregated under it at one time or another.
_Two nooses — not three [which would symbolize the KKK] — were found dangling from the tree. Beyond being offensive to blacks, the nooses were cut down because black and white students "were playing with them, pulling on them, jump-swinging from them, and putting their heads through them," according to a black teacher who witnessed the scene.
_There was no connection between the September noose incident and December attack, according to Donald Washington, an attorney for the U.S. Justice Department in western Louisiana, who investigated claims that these events might be race-related hate crimes.
_The three youths accused of hanging the nooses were not suspended for just three days — they were isolated at an alternative school for about a month, and then given an in-school suspension for two weeks.
_The six-member jury that convicted Bell was, indeed, all white. However, only one in 10 people in LaSalle Parish is African American, and though black residents were selected randomly by computer and summoned for jury selection, none showed up.

Hopefully not all of the facts will be lost to history as moonbats strive to turn America into Zimbabwe by granting blacks the right to beat whites unconscious.

James Hansen, George Soros, and the Lack of Transparency

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:46 AM

Creepy NASA bureaucrat James Hansen once provided computer model support for the hysterical notion that burning fossil fuels would soon create a new ice age. More recently, he's been shilling for Al Gore, screeching that we're all doomed thanks to these same fossil fuels causing global warming, meanwhile sweeping bogus temperature readings under the rug.

No doubt the switch was largely a matter of keeping up with the liberal fads that the mainstream media passes off as news. But more importantly, Hansen was following the money.

We already knew that Hansen the global warming crusader was making a mint on prizes like the Heinz Award and the Dan David Prize. Now we learn that he was paid as much as $720,000 by the relentlessly anti-American George Soros' absurdly named Open Society Institute.

Too bad this wasn't public knowledge during Hansen's 1,400+ news interviews, during which he often screamed that he was being silenced by George Bush. But then Soros isn't known for transparency when it comes to financing moonbattery with his ill-gotten riches.

Other examples have come to light with the release of OSI's 2006 annual report:

OSI's ominously named Justice Fund, with a $17 million bankroll, helped instigate and finance the massive illegal immigrant rallies we saw last year.

The Hamdan v. Rumsfeld ruling that abolished special military commissions for Gitmo terrorists was obtained with Soros-financed lawyers.

Soros money helped sink a program called "Secure Flight" that matched passenger lists with terrorist names.

Lawyers who persuaded a Texas judge to block the tracking of terrorist cell phone communications were paid by Soros.

OSI partners with the Tides Foundation, which passes cash along to groups engaged in "direct action" — often a euphemism for eco-terrorism.

George Soros is a one-man termite colony, eating away at America's foundations on countless fronts. Perhaps best known of these fronts is MoveOn.org, recently in the news for its attack on General Petraeus, which crows of the Democrat Party:

Now it's our Party: we bought it, we own it, and we're going to take it back.

You might wonder why a cipher like Barack Obama is being taken seriously as a presidential candidate. It wouldn't be surprising to learn that Soros' cash has something to do with it.

Elton John's Nan Goldin Kiddie Porn Seized

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:03 AM

Child porn from Sir Elton John's private collection has been seized by British police from an exhibit at the Baltic modern art gallery in Tyneside, England, where it hung by similar works by its creator, photographer Nan Goldin, and others who have learned to transform degeneracy into cash via the sick sham that now passes for the world of art.

Goldin specializes in photographing prostitutes, homosexuals, transvestites, fellow drug addicts, derelicts, and other assorted perverts and weirdos, often during sex. The quality of her work is generally what you would expect from a drunk with a Polaroid, so the degenerate subject matter must be the whole point.

A sympathetic visitor to the exhibit had a strong enough stomach to partake of this haute couture:

There a man holding his penis, which is a bit odd and pictures of people in coffins who appear to be dead but may not be.
There are three exhibitions with very bizarre content and all carry warnings. Nan Goldin's was the most uncomfortable of the three but there was certainly nothing in any of them that I found grossly offensive.

Nonetheless, the idea of subjecting children to Goldin's world would make any decent person shudder in horror.

Yet not everyone objects. Richard Dorment of the Telegraph responds to the kiddie porn with a yawn and "Honi soit qui mal y pense" (Shamed be he who thinks evil of it). He does make an interesting point:

The trouble with censorship of any kind is that what shocks us today has a way of looking completely innocuous to the next generation.

Give some thought to the idea that in the future, no one will have a problem with naked children photographed in an aggressively depraved and sexual context. We do seem to be headed toward that future.

Descent Into Third-World Chaos Continues

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:38 AM

A couple more candidates for the list:

In Jonesboro, Georgia, Martin Flores was found guilty of jumping out of the bushes "undocumented Americans" often inhabit and trying to rape a 12-year-old:

Judge Matthew Simmons asked Flores if he wanted to say anything before he was sentenced Friday morning.
"No," he replied, "They just don't have any evidence against me. What kind of evidence do they have against me? If she was really hurt, why didn't they take her to the doctor?"
The court-appointed translator, standing next to the now-empty jury box, wearing a tan pant suit and a translators' headset, repeated the words in English as the prosecutor, defense attorney, judge and court recorders looked at the defiant defendant.
"Judge," said Lloyd Matthews, Flores' attorney, "that's our attempt to establish remorse."
Simmons told Flores that there was, actually, a lot of evidence against him.

Is Flores here legally? Who knows? Media reports often don't tell us.

The same goes for Cesar Mendez-Barrientos, who was arrested yesterday for knifing a guy in a Mount Kisco, New York laundry known as a hangout for illegals. Whether he's illegal or not, he'll be legal once politicians manage to push amnesty through.

Also in Mount Kisco, Jose Manuel Arias, whom the Journal News was honest enough to describe as an "illegal immigrant," bit a state trooper after being stopped for driving 100 mph while drunk and on drugs. It took several troopers to subdue him.

Welcome to the Third-World version of America.

Blasphemous Ad For San Francisco's Folsom Street Fair

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:02 AM

Check out the ad for San Franfreakshow's Folsom Street Fair:

folsom_street_fair.jpg

The fair describes itself as "the world's largest leather event." The city supports it by shutting down several city blocks and providing security. It is financed in part by the same South African–owned Miller Beer that has also supported illegal alien rallies.

Matt Barber of CWA comments:

"Gay" activists disingenuously call Christians "haters" and "homophobes" for honoring the Bible, but then lash out in this hateful manner toward the very people they accuse.
In their version of The Last Supper, Christ, Who gave His life for our sins, is despicably replaced by sin itself as the object of worship.

Barber calls upon California's lefty pols to condemn the ad, and:

We further challenge the media to cover this affront to Christianity with the same vigor as recent stories about cartoon depictions of Mohammed and other items offensive to the Muslim community.

Unfortunately, Christians would have to fly a few planes into buildings full of people before that will ever happen. The media only sides with the bad guys.

Animal Rights Kook Steals Bunny From Preschoolers

Posted by Dave Blount at 3:28 PM

AP reports from Spokane:

A pet rabbit named Sugar Bunny was stolen from a preschool and fliers protesting circus animal acts were left in its empty cage.
The preschool's children gathered in a circle Monday to remember Sugar Bunny.
"We talked about how some people have different ideas about animals," said teacher Lori Peters. "Some people don't think they should be in cages."

A 5-year-old had a more intelligent response:

Somebody stoled him. I'm sad.

The fliers targeted Ringling Brothers Circus, much hated by PETA and other militant moonbats for delighting little kids at the supposed expense of the animals.

As observed at BelchSpeak, this was almost certainly an inside job — i.e., a staffer with keys to the Community Building Children's Center abducted the rabbit. But chances of the perpetrator meeting with justice are slim.

More on Suppressed Path to 9/11 DVD

Posted by Dave Blount at 12:01 PM

National Review has more on the suppression of Path to 9/11's DVD release.

You might recall that Harry Reid and other Democrat thugs threatened to go after ABC's broadcasting license for daring to show the miniseries, which neglected to gloss over Bill Clinton's failure to take responsibility regarding Islamic terrorism. The show didn't flatter W either, but Republicans don't insist that the media refrain from presenting them in a negative light.

NR backs up Path to 9/11's credentials:

Because ABC insisted that Cyrus [Nowrasteh, the writer] accompany each scene with no less than two footnotes and two sources to verify that the assertions were true, the annotation he turned in was 50 pages longer than the script itself. ABC, their lawyers, and fact-checkers approved the script, and it went into production. […]
Michael Scheuer, former chief of the OBL unit at the CIA's counterterrorist center sent ABC News an e-mail, claiming, "the core of the movie is irrefutably true: the Clinton administration had 10 chances to capture or kill Bin Laden."
Gary Schroen, former CIA field agent who was the first American into Afghanistan after 9/11, said publicly, "…the movie is remarkably accurate." He also maintains that there were 13 such opportunities to capture Bin Laden. Lt. Col. Robert Patterson, chief White House military aide to President Clinton, said, "In terms of conveying how the Clinton administration handled its opportunities to get bin Laden, it's 100 percent factually correct… I was there with Clinton and Berger and watched the missed opportunities occur."

But after Bill Clinton denounced the movie as "lies in there parading as truth," CNN came to the rescue:

Wolf Blitzer provided Sandy Berger and William Cohen prime time on CNN in order to disparage the movie and demand that it be pulled off the air. None of them had in fact, viewed the film, which de facto prevented them from "lying" about it. In Berger's interview, Blitzer even failed to inquire about the 2003 incident, in which Berger stole original documents from the national archives, destroyed them, and then lied about it. It would have been a valuable and highly pertinent part of the interview, since Berger was in fact sent by Clinton, ostensibly to prepare for their testimony at the 9/11 Commission, and since Berger pled guilty to charges in April of 2005. Apparently there wasn't space to squeeze in a bit of worthwhile information, since interviewer and interviewee were set on discussing a movie both have admittedly not seen. In their own words, "only on CNN."

In a memorable scene of the miniseries, bin Laden escapes because Berger is too much of a useless bureauweenie to okay a strike.

It's a miracle the miniseries aired at all, although three minutes were censored to placate Harry Reid and his fellow goons. But the DVD remains in limbo long after it should have been released, though given the higher viewership of the miniseries, it stands to make an estimated $200 million.

Apparently Disney/ABC would rather forego the fortune than risk the wrath of Hillary Clinton before an election.

Confirmed: Bilingual Education Keeps Kids Behind

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:17 AM

A new study has stumbled upon the obvious: Bilingual education keeps Hispanics behind. From the Rocky Mountain News:

A study looking at whether poor children in Denver do better in wealthier schools turned up an unexpected — and far more controversial — finding that is raising questions about the use of Spanish in classrooms. The analysis by the Piton Foundation and the University of Colorado, to be released today, shows that students learning English make dramatically greater gains in wealthier schools than in poorer ones.
A key difference between the schools is that students in poorer schools typically learn English with help in their native language, generally Spanish.
In wealthier schools, students learning English are typically immersed in English.
"It raises more questions than it answers," Brad Jupp, senior academic adviser to Denver Public Schools Superintendent Michael Bennet, said of the study.

The main question it raises is: What possible purpose could bilingual education serve, other than to keep Hispanics poor and unassimilated so that they will be more likely to depend on government handouts and vote for Democrats?

Time to Chuck Hagel

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:38 AM

The time has come to throw the execrable Chuck Hagel out of the Republican Party. Then when he spews his Democrat talking points, his fellow moonbats won't be able to chirp, "Even a Republican Senator admits that blah blah blah…"

Here's Schmuck denouncing Republican attempts to defend us from Islamic terrorism:

The Republican Party has won two elections on the issue of fear and terrorism. [It's] going to try again.

"Fear" is a buzzword in this context. Standard Democrat procedure is to associate conservatives with the words "fear," "hate," and "corruption" at every opportunity — even if they have to make their own opportunities.

Hagel has decided we need to close down Club Gitmo, lest any useful information be obtained from the vacationing terrorists. According to liberal ideology, terrorists aren't lethal enemies; they're just criminals, in need of lawyers and rehabilitation. We certainly wouldn't want to oppress them by insisting they share information about upcoming terror attacks.

Gitmo has been exploited as a propaganda symbol by America's enemies. But closing it would hardly turn them into friends. The media would spin its closure as a validation of unfounded allegations, before moving on to the next propaganda front.

It would also leave us without a suitable place to detain terrorists. Too bad we can't store a few in the Hagel household.

Miracle Theater Rebukes Tinseltown Blasphemy

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:43 AM

The treasonous kooks at MoveOn.org aren't the only ones who can take out an ad in the paper. You might recall how actress Kathy Griffin recently accepted an Emmy by holding up the trophy and shouting:

A lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this. He had nothing to do with this. … Suck it, Jesus! This award is my god now.

In response to this all too characteristic blasphemy, members of the Miracle Theater in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee shelled out $100,000 for an ad in USA Today with this message:

"Enough is Enough!" The name of Jesus Christ should not be mocked, nor should those who love Him be slandered for their beliefs. It is time for people of faith around the country to stand firm against religious slander, bias, and bigotry of all types including Christianity!

They took out a second ad, announcing a petition asking for some modicum of respect from the entertainment industry.

The petition is less encouraging than the Miracle Theater itself. Sooner or later, demand for an alternative to the sewage gushing out of Hollyweird will create a supply. Its seeds might already be growing.

Daily Kos Chastises Newt For Defending Homosexuals

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:12 AM

Moonbats are in a double bind.They love Ahmadinejad because he is a terrorist sworn to our country's destruction. They love homosexuals, because their depraved lifestyle epitomizes decadence. But Ahmadinejad's regime has people killed for being homosexual.

The resolution to this conundrum is simple: throw a rock at Republicans and then disappear behind a smokescreen of anti-American rhetoric, as a raving lunatic did yesterday at Daily Kos.

Newt Gingrich set the Kostards off by objecting to people being executed for homosexuality in Iran. Sneers the Democrat Party's online Bible:

Ohhh, I see. Ahmadinejad is bad because his country kills gays. Ohhh. (By the way, Newt, Ahmadinejad was elected… unlike our own President[…]).

The author obliquely admits this isn't true, but then gives Newt what for:

Newt, you have no right to stand up for gays after leading the party of homophobes for all these years.

Funny, I thought "the party of homophobes" was led by Karl Rove from his secret headquarters in a hidden bunker beneath the White House. Why are the Republicans "the party of homophobes"? Because like Democrats who aren't stupid enough to enrage the electorate, they haven't endorsed the abomination of "gay marriage."

Then comes the smokescreen, before readers look too hard at the assertion that refusing to pretend homosexuals can be man and wife is more oppressive than having them killed. America is denounced for that kook at University of Florida getting himself Tasered, for converting gays to heterosexuality against their will, for habeas corpus being "gone," for warrantless wiretaps, for library records being subject to investigation, for the Abu Ghraib aberration, for deposing Saddam Hussein, for supposedly torturing the pampered terrorists at Club Gitmo, et cetera, et cetera, ad nauseam.

Few if any of the strident allegations have anything whatsoever to do with Newt objecting to homosexuals being executed in Iran. Squids squirt ink. Moonbats squirt denunciations of America.

Progressives ought to be glad someone is standing up for gays, even if it's Newt. It certainly won't be liberals themselves. The only threat to homosexuals besides their own lifestyle is Islam, and if liberals had enough character to stand up to that, they wouldn't be liberals.

San Francisco Nixes Marines Commercial

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:56 AM

Just about everyone appreciates the character, courage, and dedication of the U.S. Marines, who qualify as heroes just for getting through their training — except of course in San Francisco, which has once again put its hostility toward the military on record by denying Marines permission to film a recruitment commercial on the anniversary of 9/11.

Even New York City, infested though it is with moonbats, allowed the Marine's Silent Drill Platoon to film part of a recruitment commercial at Times Square during rush hour. After all, a society that doesn't offer a little consideration to its heroes runs the risk of running out of them. But heroes are a relic of the past best forgotten from the point of view of many San Franciscans, who having plunged whole-heartedly into the depths of degeneracy don't want to be reminded of the noble values the Marines represent.

The city's Film Commission Executive Director Stefanie Coyote would allow the commercial to be filmed only if there were no Marines in it. You see, to moonbats, Marines are icky, like guns and flags and churches.

While their betters fight and die for their freedom, the kooks running San Francisco have expressed their appreciation by banning junior ROTC, trying to ban the Blue Angels, and refusing a dock to the historic USS Iowa.

Imagine the whole country run by the sort of vermin in charge of San Francisco. How long could we survive? With SF's Nancy Pelosi atop Congress and the military-loathing Clintons on their way back to the White House, we may soon find out.

Bad Moonbat Rising: David Shuster

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:16 AM

The combination of the deterioration of mainstream journalism, desperation for ratings, and the off-the-cliff leftward movement of NBC as a whole is turning MSNBC into a breeding ground for barking moonbats. As if the oafish Chris Matthews and schizophrenic talking cockroach Keith Olbermann weren't two too many, there are more, including David Shuster, who substituted for Tucker Carlson yesterday.

Regarding the moronic and obscene four-word Rocky Mountain Collegian editorial insulting the President, Shuster opines:

I think it's great.

However, he regretted that left-wing students who hate the President are only publishing profane editorials, instead of marching in the streets like in the good old days (i.e., when they were helping Walter Cronkite cause our defeat in Vietnam).

Then on came Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) to talk about the disgraceful MoveOn.org/New York Times ad smearing General Petraeus. Shuster was waiting in ambush. Apropos of nothing, he struck with this:

What was the name of the last soldier from your district who was killed in Iraq?

Blackburn admitted she didn't happen to know.

Shuster persisted:

How come you didn't know the name?

Blackburn described some of the ways she and her staff help veterans and started to express appreciation for their sacrifice, but was interrupted by Shuster snarling:

Well, you weren't appreciative enough to know the name of this young man, he was 18 years old who was killed, yet you can say chapter and verse what goes on with the New York Times and MoveOn.org.

He kept going with it too, relentless as a pit bull with its jaws locked on your neck. This is what passes for journalism at MSNBC.

Clintons Kill GQ Story

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:11 PM

Just a minor example of the kind of ham-fisted censorship that will be in store for us if Shrillary gets herself elected Queen:

Early this summer, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign for president learned that the men's magazine GQ was working on a story the campaign was sure to hate: an account of infighting in Hillaryland.
So Clinton's aides pulled a page from the book of Hollywood publicists and offered GQ a stark choice: Kill the piece, or lose access to planned celebrity coverboy Bill Clinton.
Despite internal protests, GQ editor Jim Nelson met the Clinton campaign's demands, which had been delivered by Bill Clinton's spokesman, Jay Carson, several sources familiar with the conversations said.

Abomination in Alfred Lerner Hall

Posted by Dave Blount at 5:47 PM

As expected, Ahmadinejad used the soapbox provided by useful idiot tools at Columbia University to denounce America and cast doubt on the Holocaust, even as he arrogantly moves forward with plans to unleash a nuclear holocaust of his own.

This took place not only on the soil of a country with which Iran has been at war since 1979, not only in a city where thousands were killed by his fellow Islamic terrorists on 9/11, but in Alfred Lerner Hall, which was named after a Jewish philanthropist who served in the same Marine Corps whose ranks Ahmadinejad has been thinning in Iraq.

New York's Daily News gives some background:

Lerner, who died in 2002 at 69, was born in Brooklyn to Russian immigrants. He was a 1955 Columbia graduate and a Marine pilot. He became chairman of MBNA Corp. and owned the Cleveland Browns football team. Lerner donated a fortune to the Cleveland Clinic and created a fund to help families of first responders killed on 9/11. He also gave generously to the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous, which assists aging unsung heroes from World War II who helped save Jews during the Holocaust and educates teachers about the genocide.

Lerner gave $25 million to Columbia. If he had known the use to which they would put the hall they named after him, no doubt he would have found a more deserving recipient of his generosity.

Check out some of the comments that were spat at the Boston Herald's Michele McPhee for taking the brainless little brat to task:

Your just jealous because she has brains and you dont!
What is with editorialist reporter? Does she want to lick every cops buttons clean while she's foaming at the mouth with her populist pap.
Now please explain to me exactly what journalism school Herald reporters are supposed to go to: The Helen Keller School of Journalism perhaps?
They could have simply talked to her about the silly device instead of acting like a Gestapo Force.
Only a paranoid idiot could have thought that the device looked like a bomb. The girl's mistake was not realizing that Logan security is provided by paranoid gestapo.
Okay I get it. This column is performance art. You're trying to reflect the proudly belligerent ignorance of popular American thought.
It is reasonable for the media and everyone else to assume it was meant to look like a bomb simply because a dope and some dopey police thought it was a bomb?
I'm getting kind of tired of the country's most cowardly people wetting their pants and reducing our civil liberties because they're afraid of terrorists.
[Simpson's] only mistake was that she has not yet learned that most people in this country are less intelligent, more paranoid, not able to recognize wiring with the complexity of a flashlight, and especially in an airport will idiotically equate exposed wires with explosives.
Next time you see Michele McPhee's name on a story, know that she is going to pick on the little guy and suck up to the corrupt politicians and cover up for police mistakes just for her own personal advancement.

And on and on and on.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Outflanks Shrillary on the Left

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:53 AM

California's allegedly Republican Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has managed the impossible: he has outflanked Hillary Clinton on the left on healthcare.

According to the Governator, who was elected as an alternative to the left-wing government that has been ruining California, it isn't enough to socialize medicine for American citizens. Taxpayers must pony up for illegal aliens too.

Actually, taxpayers already pay for medical care for illegal aliens, who have been bankrupting hospitals throughout the country by getting free service at emergency rooms. But not even Shrillary or John Edwards are hard-left enough to include illegals in their socialized medicine schemes.

In other Schwarzenegger news, the Governator preached before the UN General Assembly today, exhorting world leaders to sabotage their economies in the name of the global warming hoax, as he has done in California.

One advantage of being Republican is you can maneuver as far to the left as you want. What are the infuriated constituents who were duped into voting for you going to do — vote Democrat?

If we're not able to weed the RINOs out of the Republican Party, what they will probably do is stay home — as in 2006, with such unpleasant consequences.

The leftists running Columbia University aren't the only ones to welcome visiting master terrorist Mahmoud Ahmadinejad with open arms. Team Tominthebox News Network reports that Mad Mahmoud spoke yesterday during the Sunday morning "time of gathering" of the Baker Street Unitarian Universalist Congregation.

After speaking for over an hour to a packed house, Ahmadinejad was rewarded with a standing ovation. The service concluded with the congregation joining hands with the terrorist and singing "We Shall Overcome."

Why would godless left-wing kooks admire the guy who runs a theocratic police state? They have a common enemy — us. The "Reverend" Odessa Alma Jennings-Hardworth of Baker Street explains:

We realize that President Ahmadinejad has made some statements which could be considered by some to be intolerant. Indeed, that might be true. But one must examine his overall demeanor. While Mr. Ahmadinejad is intolerant towards good things, he is also intolerant of those whom we consider intolerant in even more important matters, namely those of the far-right agenda. So we share a common intolerance of unfavorable intolerance and his intolerance of intolerance far out weights, in my opinion, his intolerance of those things tolerable. If there's one thing we cannot tolerate, it is intolerance, unless a greater intolerance exists towards those with even greater intolerance. I think our motives in having him speak, speak for themselves.

Before any trolls accuse me of falling for a hoax, let me state that this is a joke. Too bad it's no joke the way Ahmadinejad is exploiting our moonbat fifth column.

Daily Kos Writer Admits to "Crush" on Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:28 AM

When Columbia University educrats attempt to excuse themselves for providing a soapbox to America's worst enemy and the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism by proclaiming they'd do the same for Hitler, this is testimony to their depravity, not their open-mindedness. They're still not about to let ROTC on campus. But they aren't the only ones with a soft spot for Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Daily Kos, which is emerging as a major influence on the Democrat Party, put up a piece today entitled "Why I Have a Little Crush on Mahmoud Ahmadinejad." A few lowlights:

I know I'm a Jewish lesbian and he'd probably have me killed. But still, the guy speaks some blunt truths about the Bush Administration that make me swoon…
Okay, I admit it. Part of it is that he just looks cuddly. Possibly cuddly enough to turn me straight. […]
There are certainly many things about Ahmadinejad that I abhor — locking up dissidents, executing of gay folks, denying the fact of the Holocaust, potentially adding another dangerous nuclear power to the world and, in general, stifling democracy. Even still, I can't help but be turned on by his frank rhetoric calling out the horrors of the Bush Administration and, for that matter, generations of US foreign policy preceding. […]
Monday, when Ahmadinejad speaks at Columbia University in New York, I'll be listening. Maybe with a bottle of wine and some soft music playing in the background.

There you have it: no crime is so enormous that you can't make up for it with sufficient hostility to the United States. At least liberals are becoming less coy about whose side they're on: the side of absolutely anyone who wants to destroy this country.

Global Warmer Hoaxer James Hansen Once Pushed Global Cooling

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:43 PM

NASA bureaucrat James Hansen, who has been making a pretty penny by helping Al Gore prop up the global warming hoax, is a veteran of the global cooling hoax popular in the 1970s.

Investor's Business Daily reports that a 1971 Washington Post scare piece entitled "U.S. Scientist Sees New Ice Age Coming" fretted that burning fossil fuels discharges particles into the atmosphere that reflect the sun's rays back into space. Emissions over 5–10 years supposedly "could be sufficient to trigger an ice age."

The NASA research behind this hysteria was supported by a "computer program developed by Dr. James Hansen," the same guy who now refers to those who won't drink the global warming Kool-Aid as "court jesters."

IBD comments:

It's clear that Hansen is as much a political animal as he is a scientist. Did he switch from one approaching cataclysm to another because he thought it would be easier to sell to the public? Was it a career advancement move or an honest change of heart on science, based on empirical evidence?
If Hansen wants to change positions again, the time is now. With NASA having recently revised historical temperature data that Hansen himself compiled, the door has been opened for him to embrace the ice age projections of the early 1970s.
Could be he's feeling a little chill in the air again.

Brevity Is the Soul of Witlessness

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:21 AM

It sure is hard for conservatives to grapple with the nuanced sophistication of liberal elite journalists. Here come some more on the way up from the academic farm system. On Friday, Colorado State University's Rocky Mountain Collegian published an editorial entitled "Taser This." Here it is in its entirety (please excuse the profanity):

FUCK BUSH

This is the view of the Collegian editorial board.

The Taser reference is to Andrew Meyer, a moonbat journalism student at University of Florida who willfully got himself Tased at a John "Botched Joke" Kerry snorathon, apparently as a publicity stunt (entertaining video here).

Meyer paid a price for his moonbattery, and so have the lefties running the Rocky Mountain Collegian. Their juvenile rag has reportedly lost $30,000 in advertising and had to cut pay because of the fallout. But no doubt Editor David McSwine and the vulgar pointy-headed clowns who predominate on the editorial board can look forward to lucrative careers in the mainstream media.

Westchester County bureaufools are putting taxpayers' money to work by tooling around New York City's northern suburbs in a "Veggie Van" that runs on used cooking oil. Inside the van, citizens can watch DVDs hyping the global warming hoax, and collect propaganda on the alleged benefits of alternative fuels.

Soon more county vehicles will be running on restaurant waste. It's not a novel concept: deranged Hollyweird moonbat Daryl Hannah is known to putter around in such a vehicle. Here's Daryl being extracted from somebody else's tree by authorities:

Clooney Disregards Rules, Crashes Motorcycle

Rules don't apply to our Tinseltown royalty — which may be why the smug moonbat George Clooney felt entitled to pass on the right as he drove his motorcycle through Weehauken, New Jersey, across the Hudson from Manhattan.

However, the laws of nature apply even to glitterpigs. When the vehicle he was passing turned right, Loony and his passenger went flying.

Clooney broke a rib and his passenger a foot, but fortunately they were wearing helmets, so Clooney's pretty face is probably fine.

New York to Hand Out Drivers Licenses to Illegals

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:51 AM

New York State is the site of the worst terror attack in US history, carried out in part by people who were in the country illegally yet had acquired US drivers licenses. In the future this will be made easier still for terrorists, and for the illegal aliens who have been pouring into the state in massive numbers, rendering parts of it unlivable and the roads extremely hazardous.

Yesterday illegal alien advocates celebrated outside the offices of Governor Spitzer, delighted that people who are here illegally will no longer have to provide proof of citizenship to obtain a New York drivers license.

Spitzer explains why he would do such a thing to the state whose well-being is his responsibility:

As long as I'm governor we won't pretend they don't exist, cut them off from society.

"Cutting them off from society" ultimately refers to voting and entitlement benefits. Our safety is a small price to pay for more Democrat voters with their lips glued to the government teat.

Keith Olbermann: Moonbat or Parody?

Posted by Dave Blount at 4:51 PM

At this point, I'm ready for MSNBC's cartoonish Keith Olbermann to come out and admit his whole shtick is a put-on intended to ridicule obnoxious tinfoil-hat moonbats. During last night's regularly scheduled Bush denunciation, Olbermann blamed the President for General David Petraeus' reporting on progress in Iraq, and for not approving of the treasonous and despicable political attack on Petraeus that was spearheaded by MoveOn.org, with crucial support from the New York Times and Hillary Clinton.

Once he got going, Olbie couldn't stop himself until he had escalated his usual bilious hyperbole into outright lunacy. W was accused of planting a question at a press conference about the contemptible MoveOn.org ad attacking Petraeus, of "running away from the microphone" by saving the allegedly planted question for last, of transforming Petraeus into his "personal spokesman" and "front man" and a "political hack," of "vast" hypocrisy, and — in an amusing example of the pot calling the kettle black that highlighted Olbermann's own hypocrisy — of being "pissy" and "juvenile."

W also stands accused of hiding "behind the General's skirts," of "character assassination," of "changing the fabric of our nation," and of denying critics the right to respond. As Olbie yelps:

That, sir, is not only un-American. It is dictatorial.

It seems that Bush's main offense — I'm not sure if it was complaining about the disgraceful MoveOn.org ad or not preventing Petraeus from reporting to Congress — stops not far short of imposing martial law:

And in pimping General David Petraeus, sir, in violation of everything this country has been assiduously and vigilantly against for 220 years, you have tried to blur the gleaming radioactive demarcation between the military and the political, and to portray your party as the one associated with the military, and your opponents as the ones somehow antithetical to it.
You did it again today, sir, and you need to know how history will judge that line you just crossed. It is a line, thankfully only the first of a series of lines, that makes the military political, and the political military. It is a line which history shows is always the first one crossed when a democratic government in some other country has started down the long, slippery, suicidal slope towards a military junta. Get back behind that line, Mr. Bush, before some of your supporters mistake your dangerous and stupid transgression as a call to further politicize our military.

Now where would people get the idea that the party Olbermann shills for is antithetical to the military?

If Olbie is actually a closet Republican, he warrants kudos for pulling off the biggest hoax since global warming. Otherwise, he's in competition with Bill Maher for the title of most loathsome guy ever to gain regular access to the wrong end of a camera.

Death in the Post-Decency World

Posted by Dave Blount at 1:11 PM

Of the many wounds inflicted on us by moonbattery, the most grievous is the steady disintegration of our social standards, which is advanced by liberalism on every front — from the vilification of Christianity, to the election of sleazy lowlife like Bill Clinton to the highest offices, to the vile garbage fed to young people by the entertainment industry, to the rejection of mores in the name of "tolerance," to the bleeding heart sympathy with which society's worst enemies are invariably rewarded, and on and on ad nauseam.

From Hartlepool, England comes an indication of where all this is taking us.

Anthony Anderson, 27, was smoking marijuana and drinking with his friends when he came upon 50-year-old Christine Lakinski, who suffered from various medical conditions and had fallen unconscious in a doorway. When throwing a bucket of water on her failed to wake her up, Anderson tried urinating on her, while shouting, "This is YouTube material!" He also covered her with shaving cream. These festivities were filmed on a cell phone.

Miss Lakinski was later declared dead at the scene. If you don't want to spend your last moments the way she spent hers, do whatever you can to resist the erosion of our concept of decency.

Hey Moron! Pull Your Pants Up!

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:46 AM

Only one thing could be more idiotic than ordinances requiring morons to pull their pants up: some of the arguments against these ordinances.

Such a ban has just been proposed in Yonkers. But a similar one was rejected in Stratford, Connecticut, in part because it would promote the horror of racial profiling. Political correctness demands that we pretend all people are exactly the same, except that any behavior associated with blacks is sacrosanct.

But it gets worse:

During the discussion, city Police Officer Ken Davis said a decency law could increase conflict between officers and the community.
"Am I prepared to take it to another level if that person takes it to another level?" Davis asked.
Davis noted how some people in southwest Yonkers reacted angrily when officers got in a scuffle with a man who did not clean up after his dog on Hamilton Avenue. The family of Eric Brown accused police of brutality after Brown got in a scuffle Aug. 31 with officers who stopped him for that infraction.

In other words, some police don't want a ban against walking around with your pants around your knees because given the political climate, they would be afraid to enforce it.

The fact that these jerks with their pants falling off would be likely to give police trouble is the best argument in favor of the ban. Remember Rudy Giuliani's broken windows policy, which worked wonders to make New York City livable again by clamping down on minor infractions.

Unfortunately, Rudy is an aberration. Thanks to moonbattery, civilization on the whole is in retreat — reduced to squabbling over whether walking around with your underwear exposed is a civil rights issue.

Heroic Dan Is Saving Democracy With Greedy Lawsuit

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:44 AM

You might think that Dan Rather's $70 million lawsuit against his old CBS employers is inspired by a combination of runaway greed and his wounded ego. Actually, it's all about saving democracy from evil corporations and the Bushitler regime. Here's what the Dan has been gibbering on Larry King:

Somebody, sometime has got to take a stand and say democracy cannot survive, much less thrive with the level of big corporate and big government interference and intimidation in news.

According to a rather self-serving conspiracy theory, the clearly phony "Rathergate" documents with which the Dan tried to trash W's reputation right before the 2004 election were actually real, but that's been covered up by a secret alliance between CBS News and the White House.

Displaying a remarkable knack for irony, Blather dismissed an investigation into his use of fraudulent documents as "a fraud."

La Raza Tries to Dictate Local Politics in Kansas City

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:02 AM

The radical Left wants control over pretty much everything — right down to Kansas City's park board, which has incurred the wrath of the National Council of La Raza (The Race) by including 73-year-old grandmother Frances Semler. Mrs. Semler is a member of the noble volunteer group the Minutemen, which by monitoring the border and reporting incursions to the authorities hopes to encourage our useless government to get off its flabby behind and save this country.

Screams La Raza thug Janet Murguia:

A member of such a group, no matter how upstanding in other ways, should have no place representing Kansas City.

To punish KC, La Raza has threatened to hold its four-day 2009 convention somewhere else. This is expected to generate $5.5 million in local revenue. The equally anti-Caucasian NAACP is piling on, threatening to cancel a week-long convention in 2010, supposedly worth $9 million.

Both groups apparently feel they will benefit from the radical demographic shifts resulting from our colonization by Mexico. Actually, the NAACP won't benefit at all. But it's not going to pass up any chances to stick it to the white man.

Major kudos to Mayor Mark Funkhouser, who turned down Semler's offer to resign. If more politicians had spines, our country would still have a future.

Iranian Missile Attack Plans Confirmed

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:24 AM

Bad news — Jimmy Carter has this to bleat:

Iran is quite distant from Israel. I think it would be almost inconceivable that Iran would commit suicide by launching one or two missiles of any kind against the nation of Israel.

Given that Carter has never said anything in public that wasn't completely wrong, this makes an Iranian attack appear inevitable.

As for Iran being "quite distant" from Israel, Iran's deputy air force commander confirmed Wednesday that Israel is within range of Iran's medium-range missiles and bombers, which he threatened to use.

Carter then launched into his standard talking points on how the real problem is that President Bush hasn't given Palestinian terrorists whatever it takes to make them happy.

Columbia University Offers Soapbox to Ahmadinejad

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:27 PM

Iran's head terrorist Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been offered a soapbox by Columbia University, where his views on the evils of the Great Satan are sure to be much appreciated when he speaks there on Monday.

Most Columbia students had not even been born when Ahmadinejad and friends stormed the US embassy in Tehran — an act of war — and held Americans hostage for 444 days, as our useless President Jimmy Carter wobbled and wavered with his thumb up his butt. Via Anti-Mullah, here's Ahmadinejad then and now:

mahmoud_ahmadinejad_then_and_now.jpg

Another shot of Mad Mahmoud from the old embassy days:

Mahmoud_Ahmadinejad_hostages.jpg

Ahmadinejad's more recent exploits include developing nuclear weapons, with which he has promised to obliterate Israel, and waging a terrorist war against our troops in Iraq.

John McCain states the obvious:

A man who is directing the maiming and killing of American troops should not be given an invitation to speak at an American university.

Columbia's president Lee Bollinger will grant Ahmadinejad the honor of personally introducing him. Bollinger claims that he will confront Ahmadinejad with "sharp challenges." Obviously, the veteran terrorist is more than willing to face this moonbat's soggy challenges in exchange for the validation the entire farce will stamp upon his views, which include Holocaust denial.

Columbia doesn't let just anyone on its campus. For example, ROTC is not allowed. Righteous educrats including Bollinger don't want any grads defending the Great Satan by becoming officers in the US military.

The Minutemen also defend America by monitoring our borders. Columbia authorities were open-minded enough to allow Minutemen representatives to speak on campus — but the students weren't. Thuggish campus liberals actually stormed the stage, preventing the Minutemen from having their say.

Ahmadinejad's reception will be far warmer, given that he's an evil maniac sworn to America's destruction. Maybe Columbia will grant him an honorary degree in "Peace Studies."

While he's there, Mad Mahmoud might stop in and visit Columbia assistant professor Nicholas De Genova, who proclaimed that he wishes America would suffer "a million Mogadishus" in Iraq.

It's a good thing Osama bin Laden can't speak at Columbia. He would probably end up with Bollinger's job.

But then, why shouldn't bin Laden appear at Columbia? Either we are fighting back against Islamic terrorists or we aren't. If we are, why is Ahmadinejad still alive?

At least we'll be spared (barely) the spectacle of Ahmadinejad exploiting Ground Zero for a photo op.

Dead Derelict's Stolen Boots Bum Out Sean Penn

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:21 PM

For all the ferocious rhetoric coming out of moonbats about the evils of civilization, few are actually crazy enough to wander out into the wild and try to live without it. One who did is Christopher McCandless, who avoided the trappings of the material world by living in an old bus in the Alaska wilderness for the time it took him to starve to death.

Naturally this makes him a hero to the envirowackos infesting Tinseltown, who live in opulent mansions yet preach McCandless' deranged ideology. The deceased derelict is the subject of Sean Penn's latest movie, Into the Wild.

Visiting McCandless' last home, Penn was angered to find that someone had taken his boots, which had been left on the rotting bus for 15 years.

Grumbles Penn:

I can't help but think it was related to some of the imminent discussion about the movie coming, and somebody hungering to have an eBay item.

That is, someone other than Penn may be planning to exploit the poor lunatic's memory for financial gain. The nerve.

Venezuela Time

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:03 AM

With virtually no notice, Hugo Chavez has commanded Venezuelans to turn their clocks back half an hour.

On his live TV show, he and his brother, the education minister, clarified matters by telling everyone to move their clocks forward.

Whichever way the clocks go, Venezuela will soon be in its very own time zone. This is fitting for a country forced to pretend to live in an alternative reality, where socialism can lead to something other than poverty, oppression, and despair.

A mad scramble has ensued as the businesses that haven't yet been socialized out of existence try to get their computers reprogrammed to reflect the change, which may or may not take place Monday, depending on whether you listen to Chavez or his henchmen.

Normally time changes are publicized months in advance. But the cuckoo dictator shrugs off potential criticism:

I don't care if they call me crazy, the new time will go ahead, let them call me whatever they want.

Except it would be prudent not to be in Venezuela if you call him something accurate.

Dan Rather Sues CBS News

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:17 AM

rather-castro.jpg
The disgraced Dan in happier times.

A true moonbat is both paranoid and pathologically greedy for other people's money. Dan Rather qualifies on both counts, as he sues his former CBS bosses for $70 million for shoving him out the door after he tried to tip the 2004 election to John "Botched Joke" Kerry with a hit piece against President Bush that was based on phony documents.

According to the Dan, his bosses made him a scapegoat for a story that accused Bush of misconduct in the Texas Air National Guard, supposedly to "pacify" the White House. As with the many Democrats in Congress who voted to invade Iraq only because the wicked W made them do it, Dan's attempt to shove forged propaganda down our throats right before an election was actually the fault of higher-ups.

The suit alleges that bigwigs at CBS forced him to apologize against his will. Here's what the Dan said on his program:

The failure of CBS News to … properly, fully scrutinize the documents and their source led to our airing the documents when we should not have done so. It was a mistake. CBS News deeply regrets it. Also, I want to say personally and directly, I'm sorry.

Characteristically, he was lying. Evidently CBS News chief Andrew Heyward was standing off camera with a gun trained on the Dan's head.

When the Dan announced that his career at CBS was over, he claimed it had nothing to do with the Rathergate document scandal. He said:

It's time. It just felt right.

But now he says that too was a lie. CBS had at long last fired him.

Rather claims that his bosses damaged his reputation. At least we can all agree that his reputation has been damaged — beyond any hope of repair. But the Dan has been doing the job himself, not only by basing stories on crudely forged documents, but by indulging the same monstrous ego that gave birth to this lawsuit. The clownishly self-important Rather is probably best known for his aggressive insolence toward American presidents, and for walking off camera in a childish huff, leaving six minutes of dead air.

Even now the Dan is too proud to abandon his Air National Guard hit piece, claiming that CBS is involved in a sinister conspiracy to keep the truth suppressed. The story is said to be fake but accurate, thus meeting the Dan Rather standard of journalism that helped make CBS News the last-place joke it now is.

If people are going to sue each other for damaging reputations, maybe CBS should sue Rather; they were in first place among networks until he took over the anchor chair.

Cinnamon Stillwell's Venom Collection

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:50 AM

San Francisco's Cinnamon Stillwell describes herself as "a right-leaning columnist in a left-leaning town." That's not an easy thing to be, as evidenced by the deluge of moonbat hate mail she receives. A few slightly cleaned-up samples:

You are sickening for not calling the Chimpy McHitlerstein corruptocracy what it is and demanding Bush's impeachment. Bush stands against world justice and heads the worst Rogue State in the history of the world. Too bad you are blinded by your love of GW War Criminal. PS-I hope you get fired soon. You just dont fit in to SF. Move to Utah.
I wonder why someone who is so anti San Francisco wishes to stay here and constantly put the city down. Why don't you do us all a favor and move to Texas.
Dear Strawberry STINKwell — […] You are a facist bitch with nothing intelligent to say. Go directly to South Dakota, where maybe you might find some support of your kind. […] You are trash. You are filth.

Among coastal moonbats, only one thing could be worse than belonging in Jesusland — being a Nazi in bed with the Jews, who won't even admit that it wasn't really Muslims who blew up the World Trade Center:

I won't read your detritus again, its really not worth it, you sound like an admirer of Hitler […] Have an ugly day.
i recently read your inane diatribe in which you — similar to every other other fascist apologist — derided those with the courage to speak the truth about 9/11, while utterly and miserably failing to address ANY of the FACTS that the 9/11 truth movement has brought to light. … you are a disgusting, fascist apologist
wow your debunking 911 conspirators is well thought out and a perfect analysis … unfortunately, most of your descriptions describe people who believe the official story … and the denial of the jewish involvement screams of guilt … lets face it 911 was the best scam yet by the zionists.
If you have so much sympathy towards your butcher fake/forged mother country why don't you move to it and leave America for the Americans, you fifth column zionist! Or perhaps you are one of those conservative christian a--? Ha? Whatever peice of human flesh are you, move to Israel, and stop exploiting America to the advantage of you murderous fellow jews/zionist! … So be a good girl and leave America today. ok sweetheart. my warm and remote kisses go to all you f--ing israeli americans (enemy's fifth column).
Seriously, how much did the Jews pay you to write this slanderous filth?
It would be nice to know how much money you are getting from AIPAC [American Israel Public Affairs Committee] and whether or not you bought a new 5 series beemer with it?

Uh oh, it looks like the fifth-column Jew-lover Stillwell is so far out there, she considers the USA to be a sovereign country with a right to defend its borders from invasion:

I can think of so many things to tell u besides being a racist right wing immigrant hater bitch.
Thanks for making me read your article on immigration, a garbage can of vapid, racist tripe if I ever saw one. Why don't you go write for the Weekly standard or Ann coulter? The San Francisco Bay Area doesn't need more right-wing monkeyf-- insane racists…
Go f-- yourself, you narrow-minded, racist bitch.
the racism oozing from your weathered pores doesn't dilute the impact that the immigration rallies had, regardless of the tio tacos (think alberto gonzales), bananas, and other brain-washed wannabees who you wrote about in your latest racist rantings, otherwise called an article.........what you, and your racist minuteman brethren, are really afraid of are your conception of "brown hordes" taking over this country..........and you know what, you are absolutely right.........we will take over this racist country, send the illegal european descendants back to your not-so-lily-white europe, and eat our tacos while we read articles written by Chicano writers.

That sure told her for being a racist! But there's more. Moonbats also don't like it that she won't pretend she can see Emperor Albert's new suit:

Get a roll of duct tape and attach a hose to the tailpipe of your SUV, or whatever gas guzzling, luxury car it is that you obviously drive. Make sure there are no leaks-- so that NO FRESH AIR can mix in with that carbon monoxide that you're so fond of. Position the other end of the hose so that all that good ole' carbon monoxide can come into your car. Get inside and make sure all the windows are shut tightly. Start the engine and TAKE OFF!!! The sooner you get going, the sooner the rest of us can get on with the task of doing something to save the planet before we really have reached the tipping point!!! Oh, and before you leave, please email these instructions to all of your like-minded friends!!

But even if liberals are vicious and demented, at least they support the troops:

The only terrorist at this point is sick people like you […] While this administration...full of draft dodgers and frat boys…make unprepared war with American teenagers that are too irresponsible to hire in a convienience store. […] The end resault is the murders and rapes of innocent at the hands of US tax hired soldiers. You are an accessory to murder and rape. I hope you and your family suffer the same fate…I pray for it you sick f--.

Reconquista Claims Oregon Public Schools

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:34 PM

Wouldn't it be great if this could stop being America and be Mexico instead? You don't think so? The moonbats running public schools in Oregon sure do.

Oregon high schools are using a curriculum, textbooks, and other teaching materials provided by the Mexican government for teaching Spanish-speaking students. Even American history will be taught from the Mexican government's point of view — though it couldn't possibly be any worse than the anti-American bilge other students are probably learning.

The state has spent $10,000 on computers to support a Mexican educational website and plans to spend more. Now they're looking for more teachers who speak Spanish.

Similar programs have been launched in San Diego, Austin, and Yakima, Washington. It's all part Mexico's overt attempt to colonize US territory — and our own government's astonishing cooperation in this effort.

As for teaching the kids English so they can assimilate — are you kidding?

Jesse Jackson Denounces Obama

Posted by Dave Blount at 2:11 PM

Barack Obama may be an awful candidate, supported mainly by fools for shallow and idiotic reasons, but at least he isn't Jesse Jackson, who won 11 Democrat primaries in 1988, and who recently denounced Obama for "acting like he's white" by not aggressively taking up the cause of the Jena 6, a bunch of black thugs who beat up a white kid in Jena, Louisiana.

As a matter of fact, Obama is white. At least, he's as white as he is black. Via Longrange, here he is with his maternal grandparents:

ObamaGrandparents.jpg

But what his ethnicity should have to do with treating violent criminals as heroes, only Jesse Jackass could explain. Here he goes:

Jena is a defining moment, just like Selma was a defining moment.

Evidently the civil rights movement has degenerated to the point that it now incorporates the right to beat up whites. Next will come the right to seize white folks' property, à la Zimbabwe.

The idea of debt consolidation is that all the debts are combined and single payment and interest has to be given thus reducing chances of default. Today it is not difficult to start your business. Banks are there for financial support. You can either put in your own money or take debt from banks known as debt finance. You can lessen the risk by getting insurance for your business. There are other means besides taking loans such as real estate lease to provide property on lease. You can even get car insurance for the cars thanks to banks and their schemes life seems easier. However before going for any type of credits be it for example credit cards, it is better to have a look through credit card manual which identifies general activities and lending operations. This manual is for regulatory purposes.



Profiles in Countermoonbattery: Star Parker

Posted by Dave Blount at 12:40 PM

Kudos to Star Parker, for placing the blame for poverty in this country where it belongs: on the doorstep of Dems and their phony "war on poverty."

As she recently told the Heritage Foundation:

After 40 years of failure, they still insist that they want to expand this war, that they think they should pour more money into this war. Already, over $3 trillion has been spent on the war on poverty, and so far, we've not seen results.

Unless of course you count the results that Democrats actually seem to be after: more poverty, resulting in more government dependency, resulting in more votes.

Parker points out that the war on poverty is actually a war on four other things: family, thought, tradition, and religion. From her speech:

The poverty that we see today is directly related to people having children outside of marriage and then not working to support those children.
They started with the war on the Black family, and they totally destroyed this family. They spread this message of moral relativism and welfare dependency.
Lots of liberals got hold of the Black community and started convincing them that there is nothing wrong with dependence on government — we started seeing the Black family destroyed. We saw welfare policy enter in with rules that say don't work, don't save, don't get married, and we'll fix all of your life problems for you.

If only someone would fix the problems this creates for society. Parker credits the war on poverty for two out of three pregnancies in the black community ending in abortion, and seven of ten children who make it past Planned Parenthood et al. being born out of wedlock. Family breakdown inevitably leads to three awful things: crime, government dependency, and more power for liberals.

Parker knows what kind of trap the libs set, baited with free money extracted from our paychecks. She was a single welfare mother herself. Unlike many, she had the strength of character to rise out of that pit by becoming a Christian, getting an education, and starting a magazine. Now she's founder and president of the Coalition on Urban Renewal & Education (CURE), which focuses on faith-based and free market solutions to poverty.

Phoenix Cop Nick Erfle Murdered by Illegal Alien

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:53 AM

Police officer Nick Erfle survived cancer twice, but he has not survived our government's absolutely unacceptable refusal to defend the country from foreign invasion.

When Erfle confronted a jaywalker in Phoenix yesterday, he was shot in the face and killed. The jaywalker was Erik Jovani Martinez, one of millions of illegal immigrants who infest this country with the complicity of the gang of parasitical vampires that calls itself our government.

Martinez was deported just last year. But since we have no functioning government to defend our border from incursion, deportation is utterly meaningless.

After murdering Erfle, who was married with two children, Martinez commandeered a stopped car at gunpoint. At least there's a happy ending: Martinez was shot dead an hour later after pointing a gun at his hostage. Shooting illegal aliens on the spot is pretty much the only way to prevent them from continuing to indulge in their crimes, since our courts — like the federal government and the mainstream media — invariably take their side against both the police and law-abiding citizens.

Revolutions have been fought over less than our government's refusal to defend us from the Mexican invasion. A stake needs to be driven through the heart of every last bureaucratic moonbat who permitted this situation to get so far out of control.

Ken Buck, One of America's Few Defenders

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:59 AM

The handful of politicians with the integrity to address the illegal alien invasion includes Ken Buck, District Attorney of Colorado's Weld County. Here he is addressing a forum on the crisis in Greeley last night:

We have a case here where someone committed six DUIs under three different names in Weld County, and that person wasn't deported. They went out and committed vehicular homicide and killed somebody and that person left behind a wife and children.

There are countless stories like this. What is most tragic about them is that as Buck says:

[T]he crimes being committed by illegal immigrants are preventable.

That is, they are preventable assuming that the people of this country really do have control over the government, which is dominated in both parties by corrupt and irresponsible fools who simply could not care less about our safety or this country's future.

Having been forced into temporary retreat on their latest attempt to ram amnesty down our throats, they are now trying to sneak it in through the backdoor. Powerful Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL), who compares American soldiers to Nazis, has had the astonishing gall to sneak illegal alien amnesty provisions into a defense appropriations bill. Kate O'Beirne calls it "amnesty on the installment plan."

Khmer Rouge Honcho Nuon Chea Brought to Trial

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:23 AM

While Dems work overtime to secure an American defeat and its consequent bloodbath in Iraq, Cambodia is still cleaning up the mess they made in Southeast Asia a generation ago:

Nuon Chea, the top surviving leader of Cambodia's notorious Khmer Rouge, whose radical policies were responsible for the deaths of an estimated 1.7 million people, was charged Wednesday with crimes against humanity and war crimes.

The 82-year-old Nuon Chea joined the communist Khmer Rouge back in the 1950s. He was considered Pol Pot's right-hand man — a kind of Cambodian Che Guevara.

Too bad the Democrats who pulled the rug out from under South Vietnam, leading to the collapse of civilization in the region, won't also be held accountable. They are already absolving themselves from responsibility for the Nuon Cheas who will fill the vacuum if they succeed in forcing our retreat from Iraq.

Janet Reno Enters the Music Biz

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:56 AM

Former Attorney General is best known for sending in a paramilitary team to kidnap a small boy on behalf of a communist dictator; for sending in tanks to quash a cult, killing 74 men, women, and children in the process; and for her remarkable lack of interest in the illegal shenanigans of her boss Bill Clinton. But now she has another claim to fame, having released a three-CD set of historical songs.

John Murtha: Post-Surrender Bloodbath Won't Be Congress' Fault

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:53 PM

Proving that Democrats are perfectly aware that the surrender in Iraq they have been clamoring for will result in genocide, Abscam Jack Murtha preemptively asserts that the inevitable bloodbath won't be Congress' fault.

I'll keep the rebuttal short and simple: oh yes it will.

Despite the success of the surge, Murtha wants all the troops out ASAP in what could only be seen as an unconditional surrender to the al-Qaeda and Iranian-backed terrorists they've been fighting. He also wants legislation preventing permanent bases in Iraq, so that the brave soldiers who died fighting there will have done so to no strategic advantage for their country. Oh, and he wants to close Club Gitmo, and to ban what terrorist advocates call "torture" before it can save any more American lives.

If Murtha isn't on al-Qaeda's and/or Iran's payroll, he ought to be.

John Shadegg, Lonely Voice of Sanity

Posted by Dave Blount at 5:05 PM

Kudos to Arizona Rep. John Shadegg for his resistance to Governor Janet "Nappy" Napolitano's attempt (similar to New Jersey's Jon Corzine's) to sneak socialized medicine in through the backdoor via the insidious SCHIP program.

SCHIP was ostensibly intended to provide medical insurance to impoverished children. Who could argue with that, without being tarred as a villain by the media? But it has another, higher purpose: as the Wall Street Journal put it, to impose "HillaryCare on the installment plan."

This is accomplished by expanding the program to kids who don't need it, and even to kids who aren't kids but rather childless adults. Governors have an incentive to get as many people onto the SCHIP gravy train as possible, because it brings federal money into their state.

To his immense credit, Shadegg is one of the few to put our country's overall interests ahead of a mad scramble for collective loot. As he said in a statement:

The bill has no cap on income for coverage, and it even rewards states that lift income caps. Both the House and Senate bills are a dramatic expansion of government-run health care. The governor should focus on making sure SCHIP funds are spent on what they were originally intended to be spent on: children in low-income families who don't have health care coverage.

Meanwhile, Shrillary strives to make the sneaky SCHIP strategy moot by dictating government-regulated healthcare for all. She wants proof of insurance to be a requirement for getting a job. Next will come the requirement to have 666 stamped on your forehead before you can buy or sell goods.

Houssein Zorkot: Another Muslim Medical Maniac

Posted by Dave Blount at 3:45 PM

Remember the Muslim doctors who tried to blow up Piccadilly Circus and the Glasgow airport? No doubt we're incubating a few of our own. One that hatched prematurely is third-year Wayne State medical student Houssein Zorkot, who was arrested in a park in Dearbornistan with his face painted black, carrying a loaded AK-47 that he had acquired earlier that day.

Picking up the second-generation Lebanese immigrant wasn't easy. Zorkot ran away, resisted, and finally required a zap from a Taser. This occurred just a few days before the recent 9/11 anniversary, but the Detroit Free Press reports that the authorities still haven't figured out what to make of his behavior.

His website provides a few clues. It's at www.zorkot.org/JabalAmel.html and caused my browser to go haywire. Amidst all the paramilitary imagery, the site implies allegiance to Hezbollah. On the day Zorkot was arrested, he posted pictures of soldiers, along with the message "The Start of My Personal Jihad (in the US)."

Here's the local TV report, on a tip from K. Surprisingly it doesn't blame Zorkot's arrest on racial profiling.



Judge Chucks Out Global Warming Suit

Posted by Dave Blount at 2:34 PM

Amazing — more sanity from judges in northern California:

Yesterday the 9th Circus tossed out a suit brought by Rachel Corrie's parents against Caterpillar for manufacturing the bulldozer that made a Fruit Roll-Up out of their moonbat daughter. On the same day, US federal judge Martin Jenkins applied the brakes to an equally demented lawsuit brought by California's wacky attorney general Jerry Brown, formerly known as Governor Moonbeam.

Brown was hoping to loot automobile manufacturers for hundreds of $millions on the meritless grounds that they contribute to the imaginary climate change crisis.

As Jenkins observed in his ruling, the global warming hoax is a more appropriate subject for the political branches of our government — much as looters like Moonbeam might prefer to bypass the voters and expropriate fortunes by judicial decree.

Imagine the economic chaos if the country's most populous state were to succeed in declaring the maker of any car on its roads fair game to be pillaged. It could still happen — Brown could appeal to the infamous 9th Circus. From there the case would go to the Supremes, who have already ruled that CO2 — i.e., our very breath — is a dangerous pollutant.

Ricardo Cortez: Another Homicidal Peace Activist

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:56 AM

In the proud peacenik tradition of axe-murderer Carlos Hartmann and brutal maniac Christiaan Briggs, antiwar activist Ricardo Cortez was arrested for murdering his wife last Sunday in Greeley, Colorado.

Along with his wife, Cortez shot a man named Sam Jantz, who luckily survived. In a separate case, for which he took a plea bargain last week, he was charged with second-degree assault causing serious bodily injury, false imprisonment by force for more than 12 hours, felony menacing with a real or simulated weapon, and third-degree assault that recklessly caused injury. Also on the peace activist's resume are a couple of alcohol-related charges, including drunk driving.

By trying to bring about our defeat in Iraq, peace activists are enabling Islamic terrorists, who any idiot could see will impose absolute mayhem if we retreat. Folks like Cortez help us understand why that doesn't bother peaceniks.

Barry Manilow Declares War on Elizabeth Hasselbeck

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:29 AM

Exhibiting the open-minded tolerance in which liberals take so much pride, schmaltzy 70s pop star Barry Manilow has canceled an appearance on Rosie O'Donnell's old soapbox The View, on the grounds that he refuses to be interviewed by conservative Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

The King of Queaze denounces the ditsy but decent Hasselbeck as "dangerous" and "offensive," apparently because she is not a fan of abortion and doesn't advocate surrendering to al-Qaeda and Iranian-backed terrorists in Iraq.

Indicating how well Ron Paul fits in the Republican Party, Manilow has given the maximum allowed $2,300 to five presidential candidates this year: Shrillary Rotten, Osama Obama, Slow Joe Biden, the Breck Girl, and Paul. He's also been a big supporter of strident left-wing nut job Babs Boxer in the Senate.

Although Manilow was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, many of the cheesy tunes with which he induced mass nausea throughout the 70s were written by other people, ironically including "I Write the Songs."

Manilow has appeared on The View twice before with Hasselbeck present. The appearance that he just canceled for next Tuesday was booked back in July. Maybe he's afraid that the aging remnants of his fan base will react to his even being in the same room as a conservative the way liberal Seattle fans reacted to Hasselbeck's brother-in-law Matt giving a Seahawks jersey to President Bush.

Uncle Walter Rises From the Dead

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:32 AM

It doesn't matter how bad you kill Jason Voorhees or Michael Myers — they will still come back for yet another sequel. The same apparently holds true for the equally malignant Walter Cronkite, who retired over a quarter century ago when he hit 65.

Now "The Most Trusted Man in America," the left-wing propagandist who probably did more than any other individual to allow totalitarianism and genocide to prevail in Southeast Asia by persuading Americans to submit to defeat in Vietnam, is expected to sign with Retirement Living TV.

Cronkite's new cable network, which is carried by virtually no one, doesn't mind being the place where old anchors go when they're done. Says Elliot Jacobson, VP for programming and production:

If someone asserts that this is a graveyard for television anchors — well we're proud of that, because we think they bring incredible value.

Snakebite Blamed For Cross-Country Killing Spree

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:08 AM

These days every criminal has an excuse, but at least this one's original: Paul Devoe III, accused of killing six people, was allegedly set off by a rattlesnake bite.

According to his uncle Ed Nelson, medication prescribed for the snakebite combined with alcohol to create a psychological condition that rendered Devoe incapable of refraining from homicide.

He killed five people in Texas, then set off for his native Long Island. Along the way, he killed a woman in Pennsylvania so he could steal her car. But it was the snake's fault.

Says Suffolk County, New York District Attorney Thomas Spota:

I think a jury will summarily dismiss that defense.

But as O.J. could tell him, that depends on the jury. Maybe Devoe could get John Edwards on the case, and sue the doctor who prescribed the snakebite medication.

Dead Illegal Was Dead Drunk

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:27 AM

Mount Kisco, New York police officer George Bubaris is being railroaded in the name of multiculturalism for escorting out of town a publicly drunk illegal alien named Rene Javier Perez who later turned up dead, evidently a victim of the violence that is endemic among the perpetually drunk Guatemalan cavemen who infest the forests of Westchester County.

As always, the left-wing local media have sided with the cavemen, spinning the story to leave the impression that Bubaris took Perez out to some lonely place and killed him, though there is no evidence that happened. But now a glimpse of honesty has poked through the political correctness at the Journal News, which admits that Perez had a blood alcohol level six times the legal limit for driving.

We also learn that Perez — an illegal alien derelict with a long history of public intoxication — regained consciousness while being treated at Westchester Medical Center, where he was described as "confused" and "combative." He soon died of a cardiac arrest despite attempts to revive him.

Bubaris, who was following a standard, time-honored practice by escorting the belligerent drunk out of town, has been thanked for his efforts to preserve the peace by being charged with manslaughter, unlawful imprisonment, and official misconduct. He's out on $100,000 bail, having been suspended without pay.

These days, it's trying to prevent crime that doesn't pay.

MSM Discovers Maniacal Killer Che Guevara's "Dark Side"

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:31 AM

Not everybody worships Che Guevara, patron saint of moonbats who would really like to kill somebody. The Australian is open-minded enough to acknowledge The Hidden Face of Che, by escaped Cuban Jacobo Machover:

A romantic hero to legions of fans the world over, Ernesto "Che" Guevara, the poster boy of Marxist revolution, has come under assault as a cold-hearted monster four decades after his death in the Bolivian jungle.
A revisionist biography has highlighted Guevara's involvement in countless executions of "traitors" and counter-revolutionary "worms", offering a new glimpse of the dark side of the guerilla fighter who helped Fidel Castro seize power in Cuba.

The "dark side" of Che? As opposed to the light side?

A little background, from another escaped Cuban, Humberto Fontova:

Guevara was no more the brains of the Cuban Revolution than Cheka-head Felix Drezhinsky had been the brains of the Bolshevik Revolution, or Gestapo chief Himmler the brains of the National Socialist Revolution, or KGB head Beria the brains behind Stalinism. In fact Che performed the same role for Fidel Castro as Drezhinsky performed for Lenin, Himmler for Hitler and Beria for Stalin. Che Guevara was the Castro regime's chief executioner.

Guevara reportedly boasted of killing "several thousand" just during the first year of Castro's nightmarish regime. Below are a few Che quotes that illustrate his progressive wisdom.

Dismissing the objections of a colleague who understood the importance of trials and proof:

Go ahead and try them tomorrow morning — but execute them NOW!

From his Motorcycle Diaries, which acolyte Robert Redford managed to edit into a cinematic hagiography:

Crazy with fury I will stain my rifle red while slaughtering any enemy that falls in my hands! My nostrils dilate while savoring the acrid odor of gunpowder and blood. With the deaths of my enemies I prepare my being for the sacred fight and join the triumphant proletariat with a bestial howl!

Instructing his Revolutionary Tribunals:

We don't need proof to execute a man. We only need proof that it's necessary to execute him. A revolutionary must become a cold killing machine motivated by pure hate.

From a letter to his father:

I'd like to confess, papa, at that moment I discovered that I really like killing.

Summing up socialism, after describing how he shot some poor helpless guy in the head at point-blank range:

He went into convulsions for a while and was finally still. Now his belongings were mine.

To a 14-year-old boy, just before he personally blew the kid's brains out for trying to defend his father, who was also executed:

I said: KNEEL DOWN!

(The kid wouldn't kneel and had to be murdered standing up.)

That they would make a icon out of this fiend tells you all you need to know about progressives.

9th Circus Nixes Saint Pancake Suit

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:19 PM

What is the world coming to when greedy moonbats with a lawsuit can't even count on the 9th Circus anymore?

In a rare win for sanity, the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals refused to reinstate a suit brought by the parents of Rachel Corrie, aka Saint Pancake, against Caterpillar Inc. for manufacturing the bulldozer Corrie was enough of an idiot to get herself killed by standing in front of.

For once the court acknowledged the limits on its authority. Wrote Judge Kim McLane Wardlaw:

A court could not find in favor of the plaintiffs without implicitly questioning, and even condemning, United States foreign policy toward Israel. It is not the role of the courts to indirectly indict Israel for violating international law with military equipment the United States government provided and continues to provide.

As you might recall, Corrie stood in front of the bulldozer, whose driver had no way to see her, as part of a campaign on behalf of Palestinian terrorists. According to the suit, Caterpillar is civilly liable for aiding and abetting the alleged human rights violation of bulldozers being used to destroy buildings used by terrorists. However, not even the 9th Circus would go along with this.

But I'm sure Saint Pancake's admirers in the arts community will stay true to her cause. Maybe her fan club can ease the pain of this legal setback with another pancake breakfast.

Moonbat Inflation

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:11 PM

There are more than enough moonbats in this world without the leftist German press inflating their numbers.

The aggressively liberal Associated Press numbered the antiwar moonbats who descended on Washington over the weekend at "several thousand." But that's not what some Germans heard:

ARD Tagesschau, SZ and SPIEGEL ONLINE - "4,000 to 6,000" anti-war demonstrators

ZDF and Die Zeit - "About 10,000" anti-war demonstrators

TAZ - "Tens-of-thousands" of anti-war demonstrators

Die Welt - "50,000 anti-war demonstrators"

Die Presse (Austrian media site) - "Around 100,000 Americans marched against the war..."

Yet for some reason no one saw fit to exaggerate the 1,000 or so counterprotesters organized by Gathering of Eagles.

Chavez Lowers Boom on Private Schools

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:53 AM

No wonder liberals like Hugo Chavez. Now he's going after private schools:

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez threatened on Monday to close or take over any private school that refuses to submit to the oversight of his socialist government as it develops a new curriculum and textbooks.
"Society cannot allow the private sector to do whatever it wants," said Chavez, speaking on the first day of classes.
All schools, public and private, must admit state inspectors and submit to the government's new educational system, or be closed and nationalized, with the state taking responsibility for the education of their children, Chavez said.

The idea is to make sure all children are programmed with socialist propaganda, as prescribed by the government. This, along with monster payoffs from teachers unions, is the same reason our Democrat Party is such a devoted advocate of public education.

Both Chavez and the Dems might like to follow the lead of their fellow socialist Adolf Hitler, who banned homeschooling in Germany. It remains illegal to this day.

Sally Field Delivers Incoherent, Foul-Mouthed Anti-War Rant at Emmys

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:24 AM

The atrocious Kathy Griffin wasn't the only moonbat who had to be censored at this year's Emmy Awards for the sake of preserving some semblance of propriety. CBS reports on the performance of Sally Field, still cute as a button and about as intelligent:

Accepting her Emmy on Sunday night for lead actress in a drama series ("Brothers and Sisters"), Field stumbled halfway through, lost her train of thought, screeched at the audience to stop applauding so she could finish talking — and then was bleeped by Fox censors as she stammered through an anti-war rant.
"And, let's face it, if the mothers ruled the war, there would be no (expletive) wars in the first place," Field said, but Fox cut away for much of her comment.

Afterwards Field assured us that she "didn't have a political agenda."

Here's video of her edited and unedited speech.

The aging actress is best known for her 1985 Oscar acceptance speech in which she exclaimed:

I can't deny the fact that you like me. Right now, you really like me.

If you say so, Sally.

It occurs to a younger Sally that maybe people don't like her as much as she thought.



Hallowed Commandments of the Politically Correct Elitist

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:30 AM

The Irate Nation lists all 66 of the hallowed commandments of the politically correct elitist left-wing liberal. A few examples of the sacred rules guiding moonbats:

• You have to believe that standardized tests are racist, but racial quotas, preferential treatment and set-asides are not racist.

• You have to believe that gender roles are artificial, but being lesbian is natural.

• You have to believe that taxes are too low, but ATM fees are too high.

• You have to be against capital punishment for criminals, even murderers, but support abortion on demand.

• You have to believe that self-esteem is more important than actually doing something to earn it.

• You have to believe that there were never any weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, even though they were used against Iran, the Kurds and the Iraqi people and even though the many Democrats warned us about WMD before the Iraqi invasion.

• You are always to belittle and deride concepts such as optimism, patriotism, honor, honesty, faithfulness, fidelity, loyalty, courage, bravery, principles, trust, trustworthiness, reliability, responsibility, respect, common-courtesy, common decency, kindness, Good Samaritanism, sacrifice, patience, fortitude, values, integrity and character as being naive and passe. Call anyone who uses those words, "judgmental" and "intolerant."

• You are encouraged to lionize, venerate, yea, worship sloth, lust, self-centeredness, selfishness, instant gratification, slander, criminal behavior, drug addiction, degenerate behavior, promiscuous sex, lewd remarks and behavior, rudeness, crudeness, crassness, smutty language, vulgarity of all kinds, disrespect for authority, laws, law enforcement and military while showing respect for prostitution, drug dealing, gang-bangers, organized crime, pornography and generally everything that would aid in tearing down the social fabric of the United States of America and all she stands for.

• You have to support and promote socialized medicine as "Socialized medicine is based on the belief that, while individual bankruptcy by medical bills is tragic and wicked, bankrupting the entire country is beneficial and noble." ~ Nicolas Martin

• Remember, admission that morals and ethics are passe always gets you off the hook — but, do not hesitate to point out the immorality or unethical behavior of people who don't agree with Elitist Leftwing Liberals.

According to brigand Neelie Kroes, the EU Competition Commissioner:

The court has confirmed the Commission's view that consumers are suffering at the hands of Microsoft.

"Suffering" means having a free media player included with the Windows operating system. To alleviate this anguish, greedy EU parasites are fining Microsoft a record $613 million.

But there's more: Microsoft will be required to turn over information on its server protocols to rivals. This constitutes the intellectual property that Microsoft is in business to sell. Next the EU will demand that GM give cars to Volkswagen and Peugeot.

Madonna's Interest in the Kabbala Explained

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:41 AM

The vulgar and blasphemous moonbat who calls herself "Madonna," while cuddling with Shimon Peres over the weekend, declared herself to be an "ambassador for Judaism." She's not even Jewish, yet has devoted to the Kabbala the sort of occult interest other people with her depth of intellect usually funnel into numerology or palm reading.

The Material Girl was in Israel to attend a conference on the Kabbala that also drew the noisily anti-Christian Rosie O'Donnell. Madonna reportedly gushed to Peres:

You don't know how popular the Book of Splendor is among Hollywood actors.

The director of one of the most respected Kabbala yeshivot in Jerusalem explains the attraction:

It is a known fact in Kabbala that impurity and evil are inherently attracted to sanctity.
That's why people of Hollywood, a place of iniquity and lasciviousness, are naturally attracted to the holiness of Kabbala.

Frivolous fad-chasers are forbidden from studying the Kabbala. Even Jews are required first to review the entire Talmud and the legal commentaries, and to adhere scrupulously to the commandments. But of course, rules are for little people, not big shots from the entertainment world.

Maybe this explains why the glitterpigs are drawn to the Kabbala, yet spit on Christianity at every public opportunity. You can't express contempt for the Bible just by pretending to study it.

Red Arrow pilots have flown at over 4,000 events around the world. They planned their best display ever for the opening ceremonies at the 2012 Olympics in London, intending to present "a showcase of everything that is great about Britain."

The liberal bureaucrats who have been systematically dismantling everything that is great about Britain were appalled, and have banned the Red Arrows from performing. The Department of Culture, Media and Sport yelps that the Red Arrows are "not in keeping with the event" because they are "too militaristically British."

Rest assured, bureauweenies: a few more generations with you in control and you won't have to worry about Britons showing national pride, because there will be nothing left to take pride in — just fading memories of glory that public education will eventually eradicate.

Moonbat Demonstration Flops

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:07 PM

With marching orders from the communist front group ANSWER, moonbats converged on the capital yesterday, hellbent on changing the world. Fortunately they failed miserably.

But they did manage to provide a little outré entertainment. Age of Hooper has video, plus still pics including these gems:

Lincoln Chafee Leaves Republican Party

Posted by Dave Blount at 12:23 PM

What a surprise: Lincoln Chafee, former Rhode Island Senator and shameless RINO, is no longer a Republican.

Chafee often sided with Dems on key issues, and was enough of a moonbat to oppose the confirmation of John Bolton as UN Ambassador, after the national Republican Party supported him against conservative challenger Stephen Laffey in 2006, on the grounds that a liberal posing as a conservative would be more electable in the People's Republic of New England. This foolishness was justly rewarded when Democrat Sheldon Whitehouse took Chafing's seat.

Now if we can just get rid of John Warner, Schmuck Hagel, Olympia Snowe, Mel Martinez, Lindsey Grahamnesty, Lettuce McCain, et al., maybe we can restore enough integrity to the party to win some elections.

Hanoi Jane Caused Global Warming

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:33 AM

That Jane Fonda committed treason during the Vietnam War doesn't bother her fan base in the least. But maybe they will object to her having helped cause global warming with her hysterical propaganda movie The China Syndrome.

From the mouth of moonbattery itself, New York Times magazine:

"The China Syndrome" opened on March 16, 1979. With the no-nukes protest movement in full swing, the movie was attacked by the nuclear industry as an irresponsible act of leftist fear-mongering. Twelve days later, an accident occurred at the Three Mile Island nuclear plant in south-central Pennsylvania. […]
Although some radiation was released, there was no meltdown through to the other side of the Earth — no "China syndrome" — nor, in fact, did the T.M.I. accident produce any deaths, injuries or significant damage except to the plant itself.
What it did produce, stoked by "The China Syndrome," was a widespread panic. The nuclear industry, already foundering as a result of economic, regulatory and public pressures, halted plans for further expansion. And so, instead of becoming a nation with clean and cheap nuclear energy, as once seemed inevitable, the United States kept building power plants that burned coal and other fossil fuels. Today such plants account for 40 percent of the country's energy-related carbon-dioxide emissions. Anyone hunting for a global-warming villain can't help blaming those power plants — and can't help wondering too about the unintended consequences of Jane Fonda.

Fortunately for Hanoi Jane, true moonbats understand that the purpose of environmentalism is not to avert an imaginary climate crisis, but to inhibit and undermine civilization by any means possible. This she accomplished, as NewsBusters points out:

[A]nother finger that could be pointed at Fonda besides all the extra CO2 in the atmosphere is today's high oil and gas prices. After all, significantly less oil products would have been used in power plants that use such and homes that burn heating oil if more electricity was generated by nuclear facilities.
So, if you really want to pile on Fonda's foolishness, CO2 is only the beginning.
Regardless, maybe policymakers should look at how much damage was done by poor energy decisions decades ago — precipitated by alarmist eco-hysteria — and refuse to be bullied into the same mistakes today by folks like Al Gore who are similarly deluded as Fonda was back then.
Or, is that asking for too much from elected officials?

The apparent answer is yes. But what can you expect when those officials were elected by a populace that treats Hanoi Jane like royalty?

Feds: Tasers Only For American Citizens, Not Illegal Aliens

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:37 AM

Among the many special privileges granted to those who are in this country illegally: Tasers can't be used to keep them under control. The U.S. Office of Detention and Removal Operations (DRO) has imposed new regulations that ban contracting with local jails that use Tasers on illegals.

Many jails use the nonlethal devices to maintain order — which runs a distant second to sucking up to Mexican invaders in the federal government's priorities. Also, illegals must have a proper bed, instead of just a pad.

Tom Tancredo is outraged:

I think most citizens would think it extremely bizarre for the federal government to say that Tasers must never be used on an illegal alien when their use is legal for citizens. I hope that DRO will pull back from any effort to impose its "Taser rule" on jails operated by local law enforcement.
I also have other questions about the DRO detention standards imposed on local jail facilities. Where in federal law or regulations is it mandated that illegal aliens held in custody must have an assigned "bed" rather than a "pad" when the use of pads is legal for U.S. citizens? Why is there a different standard for the accommodation of illegal aliens than for citizens?

Some counties turn down substantial federal money to avoid the onerous regulations, which would require them to set up separate facilities for the privileged illegal aliens. Others have been forced to release illegal alien criminals due to DRO policies.

The DRO also forbids using dogs to control rioting inmates — if the inmates are illegal aliens. It pays to be special.

A Doddering Greenspan Echoes Moonbat Propaganda

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:58 AM

It looks like senility, his wife Andrea Mitchell of left-wing NBC News, or both have been wearing down Alan Greenspan. The 81-year-old is now spewing the sophomoric bumper sticker slogan "It's all about oil." Mumbles Greenscam:

I am saddened that it is politically inconvenient to acknowledge what everyone knows: the Iraq war is largely about oil.

Our relations with the Middle East in general are largely about oil. After all, oil is the lifeblood of our economy. If our oil supply were choked off, our economy would completely collapse and Americans would starve by the millions. Fighting to secure our oil supply is fighting for our very survival.

But to suggest that the war in Iraq is primarily about oil is to pander to some of the most simplistic propaganda ever to be gibbered by moonbats. If our policy is dictated by oil, why don't we sell oil-free Israel down the river to please its oil-rich Arab neighbors? We do we go to the immense trouble of trying to establish democracy in Iraq, instead of just installing a puppet dictator?

Maybe Greenspan has forgotten about 9/11, and the acute fear of hostile dictators like Saddam seeing to it that terrorists have weapons of mass destruction for the next attack. It could also be that Andrea has been shouting into his ear horn the preposterous liberal shibboleth that the war against terrorists in Iraq has nothing to do with the War on Terror.

Teacher Has 8th-Graders Ask Parents to Renounce US Citizenship

Posted by Dave Blount at 1:07 PM

The seditious brainwashing that passes for education in our public schools pushed the envelope over the brink on Tuesday, when 8th grade teacher Mike Brooks of Bidwell Junior High School in Chico, California sent a letter home with his students for their parents to sign. It declared that they were renouncing their American citizenship.

From the letter:

After careful consideration of the facts of our current situation, I have decided to announce to everyone that I am no longer a citizen of the United States, but a free and independent member of the global community.

Babbles Brooks:

I just wanted to start a discussion.

The letter was sent with no explanation or disclaimer. Some parents actually returned the letter signed. Others still have some respect for this country, like Michael Hill, who relays what his daughter Kaytlen reports having learned:

The lesson being taught in class was that the U.S. kidnaps innocent people and takes them to Cuba, where they are kept indefinitely and tortured.

Kaytlen broke into tears when recalling the tales Brooks had been telling of illegal wiretaps and other spying directed against the innocent. She said she would be in trouble if her father didn't sign the letter denouncing America.

Brooks will face no disciplinary action. Here's how Principal Joanne Parsley characterized his exercise in treason:

It was a well-intended lesson that didn't shake out too well.

According to Parsley, Brooks has no political agenda to advance.

Think very hard before turning your kids over to the cesspools liberals have made of our extravagantly expensive public schools.

Eating Pets in Socialist Utopia

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:00 AM

PETA fanatics may want to rethink their leftist inclinations, in light of the latest news from the socialist paradise in Zimbabwe:

Pets are being slaughtered for meat in shortage-stricken Zimbabwe and record numbers of animals have been surrendered to shelters or abandoned by owners no longer able to feed them, animal welfare activists say.
The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals [SPCA] said it could not feed surrendered animals or find them new homes and was being forced to kill them and destroy the corpses.
Animals, like people, are being hard hit by Zimbabwe's economic meltdown, with official inflation of more than 7,600 percent, the highest in the world. Independent estimates put real inflation closer to 25,000 percent and the International Monetary Fund has forecast it will reach 100,000 percent by the end of the year.

Vets have run out of drugs to put dogs down with. But a lot of people are killing their own dogs — and then eating them. Mystery meat sold on the black market in plastic bags of 22 pounds or more contains bone, fat, and offal, but no indication of where the meat came from. Hopefully it's from dogs and not people.

The SPCA has launched an awareness campaign on "the ethical and moral issues regarding the killing and consumption of trusted companion animals." A worldwide campaign to inform people of the horrors of socialism would be more constructive. In Zimbabwe, speaking out even on behalf of dogs can get you in trouble:

Animal activists say they have been threatened with arrest for speaking out and SPCA offices were raided by secret police agents of the Central Intelligence Organization on Thursday. SPCA inspectors said they were ordered not to release details of surrendered, abandoned, slain or eaten pets.

A government that disregards property rights isn't likely to worry about the rights of dogs:

Mugabe's critics say corruption and his stewardship of the economy have led to the crisis. They point to the often-violent, government seizures of thousands of white-owned commercial farms that began in 2000 and disrupted the agriculture-based economy in what was once a regional breadbasket.

At least Mugabe stuck it good to Whitey. If they ever manage to drive him out of Zimbabwe, he'll be a shoo-in for Mayor of Detroit.

John Stossel Attempts to Warn Us Back From the Brink

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:24 AM

As our country stumbles toward the abyss of socialized medicine, John Stossel does his best to save us from our own moonbattery with a few sane observations:

To Michael Moore, the insurance companies are crooks, and we'd be better off in places like Cuba, Canada, France or England — any country that offers socialized medicine. But in countries where health care's free, governments deal with that increased demand for it by limiting what's available. You've heard about the wait lists, but it goes beyond that. A British hospital proposed saving money by not washing bedsheets between patients and just turning the sheets over. Some Brits pull their own teeth; dental tools: pliers and bourbon.
Government rationing health care in Canada is why when Karen Jepp went into labor with her quadruplets last month, she flew to Montana to have the babies. No nearby neonatal unit in Canada had room for her.
And everyone is complaining about the millions of Americans who are uninsured. But is health insurance such a good thing? What if you had grocery insurance? You wouldn't care what things cost. Why buy hamburger? I'll just buy steak. Why use coupons? Why look for sales? I'll just buy — everything. My insurance company's paying. That increases costs, because when bills are paid with "other people's money," costs skyrocket.

The point of insurance should be to cover catastrophes, not to make everything "free."

Future generations, suffering the inevitable deprivations of socialized medicine, will look back in amazement at what we threw away. Unless of course liberals succeed at obliterating history and replacing it with their favorite "narrative" of racist, capitalist, homophobic exploitation. Then the future won't even know that our current society existed.

Europe to Open Muslim Floodgates Even Wider

Posted by Dave Blount at 2:05 PM

Unless you've been relying on the MSM for information, you probably know that massive immigration from Muslim countries has produced a crisis of historic proportions in Europe.

There are Muslim neighborhoods throughout western and northern Europe that not even ambulance crews can enter without a police escort. In France, Muslims set cars on fire by the hundreds. In Sweden, native women die their hair black or wear hijabs to avoid being raped. In Holland, famous artists are murdered on the street for making movies deemed unflattering toward Islam.

Given the relative birth rates of abortion-friendly Europeans versus the Muslim invaders, it is becoming obvious that unless drastic action is taken, Europe will be absorbed by the Arab world within the next century, with catastrophic consequences for Western Civilization.

Now at last EU bureaucrats have come up with a response to the crisis:

A huge increase in economic migration into the EU is being proposed by the European Commission.
It wants to relax controls and open the borders to an extra 20 million workers from Asia and Africa over the next two decades.

"Asia and Africa" in this context is a euphemism for "Muslim countries."

Corzine Defies Federal Government to Advance Socialized Medicine

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:58 AM

Speed limits and seatbelt laws aren't the only rules ignored by New Jersey's arrogant Democrat Governor Jon Corzine. He's declared that he will not obey federal rules that limit the expansion of government-subsidized healthcare to people who don't need it.

The program in question is State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), which liberals are using to slip socialized medicine in through the back door for the sake of the children — the children in question coming from families perfectly capable of buying their own insurance.

The strategy is the same used by drug dealers who give free samples to school kids. Liberals know that once people get hooked on receiving something "for free," they will come to see it as an entitlement. They are gambling that most of us are too stupid to understand that "free" healthcare is not only inadequate but extravagantly expensive.

In an attempt to prevent the cost of "free" healthcare from spiraling hopelessly out of control, rules were put in place to prevent families that earn more than two and a half times the poverty rate from exploiting SCHIP, which is supposedly intended to help those who can't help themselves. Corzine dismisses the rules as "onerous," so he's come up with his own rules. These advance socialism by handing out federal money to families making as much as 350% of the poverty rate.

Look for more Corzine types to emerge in the future. As moonbattery sucks our society down into decay, it's inevitable that the rule of law will deteriorate.

Fighting Back Against Eco-Fascism

The New Mexico Cattle Growers' Association and the Coalition of Arizona/New Mexico Counties for Stable Economic Growth are backing a lawsuit against the US Fish and Wildlife Service, which trampled on landowners' property rights by declaring 500 miles of riverbed to be critical habitat for the spikedance and loach minnow.

Damien Schiff of the Pacific Legal Foundation explains that the bureauweenies "ignored their legal duty to consider the economic impact of the designation" and that their regulations "pose flood dangers for ranchers and other rural landowners who can't shore up riverbanks or dredge streams and rivers to stop the buildup of silt."

Moonbattery May Lead to Food Shortages in Europe

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:28 AM

Venezuela won't be the last place where moonbattery results in food shortages, nor will orangutans be the last victims of the absurd biofuels fad. EU Referendum reports that a combination of bureaucratic incompetence and wasting farmland on biofuel crops could soon lead to food shortages in the European Union:

Evidence is beginning to accumulate to suggest that, not only has the EU's management of grain stocks been deficient, but its proposed emergency measures to bring more grain onto the market and stabilise food prices is going to be completely ineffective.
More worrying still, the EU commission is showing every sign that it has not the faintest idea of what is going on. As a result, we are set to see spiralling increases in the price of basic food commodities and there is the very real prospect of shortages.

EU bureaucrats misjudged the grain supply so badly that they sold off grain stocks last year, expecting a bumper harvest that never came. In reaction to the crisis, they're removing compulsory set-aside requirements for the next planting season. But most of the set-aside land is already dedicated to non-food production, prominently including inefficient but politically correct biofuel.

Already there has been a "pasta strike" in Italy over durum wheat prices, Premier Foods (the leading UK bread supplier) is complaining of runaway costs, and the OECD is warning that subsidies for biofuels will lead to spiraling food prices (in addition to the destruction of natural habitat).

But EU bureauweenies have dug in, and show no sign of giving up on their 10% biofuels quota.

It isn't only because of Stalin that socialism is associated with starvation.

Nobel Laureate Demands More Poverty

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:38 AM

The caliber of Nobel Peace Prize recipients hasn't improved much since the all-time lows hit when the award went to soul mates Yasser Arafat and Jimmy Carter. 2006 laureate Muhammad Yunus has been flapping his arms and screeching that it is "a matter of life and death" that poverty be imposed on the planet in the name of the global warming hoax.

Yunus yelps that his native Bangladesh is bearing the brunt of the climate change apocalypse. It will soon be submerged beneath a sea that he claims is rising three millimeters per year.

To interpose a little sane perspective, at this rate it would take the sea more than a century to rise one foot. Since the sea level naturally fluctuates (just like the climate), it's unlikely that it will keep rising for over 100 years — but not as unlikely as the notion that we could do anything about it.

Now back to Yunus' lunacy:

The worst part of it is, we (developing nations) are imitating the world which created pollution. So our lifestyle is imitating the lifestyle of the people who have already led the way. That is the most dangerous part of it.

In other words, he doesn't like it that developing nations are working their way out of abject poverty. Yunus wants poor countries to stay poor, and rich countries to become poor. Then Gaia will smile upon us for having sacrificed our well-being in obeisance.

Again we see that moonbats are not just wrong, but evil. Their objectives are to dismantle civilization and impose misery on the human race. But not to worry — I'm sure they're doing it for our own good.

Judge Rules Fellow Moonbats Can Continue to Infest Berkeley Trees

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:31 AM

The hippies infesting the trees in the Memorial Stadium oak grove in Berkeley can stay for now, despite permanently mutilating the trees and sloshing sewage on anyone passing below.

Alameda County Superior Court Judge Richard Keller declared they do not present an immediate fire threat (despite their propane tanks) or health problem (despite "an increasing number of excrement and urine spills").

The pretext for living in the trees is that UC Berkeley wants to cut some of them down for a sports facility. The court will hear three lawsuits intended to prevent the construction before making a final decision on what to do with the tree-hippies.

My guess is that most of them will end up working in education, though a few may run for office as Democrats.

Profiles in Countermoonbattery: Roberto Calderoli

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:51 PM

Italian Senator Roberto Calderoli is at it again, proving that not everyone is ready to bend over and accept dhimmitude.

When Silvio Berlusconi was Prime Minister, Calderoli lost his ministerial post for wearing a T-shirt featuring cartoons of Mohammad that Muslims chose to be offended by.

Now he's leading the charge against the construction of a mosque in northern Italy. He has promised to bring his own pig to the site of the mosque to "defile" it, and to eat "a nice plateful of pork chops to show my lack of sympathy for those who consider pork forbidden meat."

Mario Scialoja, an activist among Muslims in Italy, provided the predictable squawks of sanctimonious outrage:

Those words are highly offensive and indecent, especially as they are coming from an Italian lawmaker. It left me speechless.

If only.

You can hardly blame Italians for objecting to more mosques. An imam was busted just a few weeks ago for running a terrorist training school in a mosque in central Italy.

Moonbats will of course insist that we embrace our demise in the name of "multiculturalism." Calderoli has been denounced as a racist for putting up a little symbolic resistance to the Muslim conquest of Italy.

Dalton McGuinty: Curb Knife Violence With Ban on Handguns

Someone has been putting LSD in the liberal Kool-Aid again.

Times Gave MoveOn.org Massive Discount on Anti-Petraeus Attack Ad

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:12 AM

The New York Times did more than run a despicable full-page ad denouncing General David Petraeus in advance of his testimony on military progress in Iraq. As NewsBusters reports, it gave MoveOn.org an astounding 61% discount on the ad, definitively confirming that the ad was an extension of the treasonous pro-terrorist propaganda campaign that the Times passes off to its bobble-headed liberal readers as news.

Even running the ad was unconscionable. But the financially floundering Shady Gray Lady let the well-heeled far-left fanatics at MoveOn.org have the prominent full-page slot on the day they wanted for a token $65,000. The advertised rate is $167,157.

In effect, the Times picked up almost two thirds of the cost of an ad that personally attacked a noble American soldier as part of the Left's campaign to cause us to lose the war against al-Qaeda and Iranian-backed terrorists in Iraq. Just its way of commemorating the following day's 9/11 anniversary, I suppose. What would you expect of a newspaper run by a slimy left-wing twerp who openly sides with America's enemies?

Moonbats Lay Global Warming Groundwork For Ban on Meat

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:27 AM

The campaign to harness vegetarianism to the global warming hoax is picking up steam. AP reports that the planet is doomed if we keep eating cows.

Supposedly the farts of farm animals raised for their meat account for almost 25% of all "emissions." So obviously we need to start living off rabbit food.

Squawks nutritionist Geri Brewster:

If people knew that they were threatening the environment by eating more meat, they might think twice before ordering a burger.

Evidently she kept her face straight as she asked us to believe that refraining from eating a hamburger will have a beneficial effect on the weather.

Nothing any witchdoctor ever chanted in a trance by the light of a full moon could be any loonier than the global warming hoax. Yet like some mindless killing machine in a horror movie, it keeps on coming, encroaching ever further on our liberties, impossible to kill because revelations of its phoniness and absurdity just bounce right off the liberal ideology of the bureaucrats who run our lives with the help of official pronouncements from politically motivated "experts."

Proclaims Dr. Maria Neira, director of the World Health Organization's department of public health and the environment:

[E]ating less meat could definitely be one way to reduce gas emissions and climate change.

No doubt people alive today will one day be dragged off to gulags by United Nations authorities for ruining the weather by consuming animal flesh.

Chavez Censors Babies' Names

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:51 AM

Under socialism, pretty much everything is dictated by the government, including what you name your children:

As if Hugo Chávez doesn't have enough ways to repress his countrymen, a new parliamentary edict has been introduced to prohibit Venezuelan parents from naming their newborns anything other than 100 officially sanctioned Spanish names. Fed up with whimsical, hard-to-pronounce, or politically incorrect monikers such as Haynhecht, Yornaichel, Hochiminh, or (¡horrores!) Kennedy, officials want to go back to basics, according to The New York Times. Supporters of the legislation say it will protect children from ridicule. But efforts to purify cultures have not gone well historically. And what's next? Venezuela itself is said to have been named by an Italian, Amerigo Vespucci, who in 1499 christened it "Little Venice." Could "Chavezuela" be far behind?

Canadians Feeling the Squeeze of State-Imposed Dhimmitude

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:33 AM

Even some Canadian bureaucrats are getting fed up with the state-imposed dhimmitude that liberals call "multiculturalism." Another favorite progressive term is "reasonable accommodation," which since 9/11 has come to mean the suppression of our own culture in favor of Islam. From the Globe and Mail:

Christiane St-Laurent, an administrative assistant who works in one of the federal public-service buildings in Gatineau, listed several examples yesterday of how her office has become too politically correct.
Appearing on the second day of hearings at a Quebec commission on reasonable accommodation, Ms. St-Laurent said Quebec was right to build a secular society by removing all signs of Catholicism from public institutions such as hospitals and schools.
"The problem is that secularism is one-dimensional," she told the commission. "We took Catholicism out of our lives, but left all this room for all the other religions."
She listed several examples from her office, including a heated debate over whether she could decorate her cubicle for Christmas; how a Christmas party was renamed a "season's gathering" even though none of the employees expressed any concern; and the fact that a woman uses the only sink on her floor to wash her feet before daily prayers.
"Those sinks are the same that we might take our water from, that we might rinse our coffee cups from. So to me, it's shocking to wash your feet in the sink. I would hope people would be smart enough to say, 'It's a workplace. Faith and belief are a private matter and I will keep it to myself at home.' But apparently, it's not going both ways. People are expecting to arrive here and still live like they are in Baghdad."

Christiane shouldn't be surprised that the suppression of Christianity would inevitably leave us with something else in its stead.

Dennis Kucinich Demonstrates Why Traitors Used to Be Hanged

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:27 PM

Contentious as things get in Congress these days, there are some things everyone can agree on even there, like yesterday's September 11 commemoration resolution. It establishes the 11th of September as a day of remembrance, expresses sympathy for the families of the victims, and honors those who died fighting Islamic terrorism in Afghanistan and Iraq. Unsurprisingly, it passed unanimously.

Well, almost unanimously. Dennis Kucinich voted against the resolution.

He explained that he could not support the resolution because there was nothing in it about Congress's "obligation under the Constitution to save our nation from being destroyed from the lies that took us into Iraq."

Then he went on to demand that our troops' air hose be cut by ending their funding.

If you still feel that "traitor" is too strong a term for Kucinich, check out this video of him denouncing the USA on Syrian TV.

Jane Fonda was never tried for treason after pulling a similar stunt in North Vietnam, and Kucinich won't be either. In fact, his liberal constituents will keep right on electing him to Congress.

Once treason was regarded as a serious crime. People were hanged for it. Now it's a convenient way for moonbats to get their faces on TV.

Kathy Griffin Denounces Christ at Emmy Awards

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:33 PM

Self-proclaimed D-list celebrity Kathy Griffin has found a way to enhance her career. While accepting a creative arts Emmy last weekend for her reality show My Life on the D-List, she took the opportunity to denounce Jesus Christ:

[A] lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus.

Then she raised her Emmy aloft, made what Fox News describes as "an off-color remark about Christ," and declared:

This award is my god now!

Griffin's tasteless performance will be edited before it's shown on the E! channel Saturday. But no doubt her reputation in Tinseltown has been greatly enhanced.

What marvelous role models entertainers make for developing young people.

Victor Davis Hanson on Islam and Moonbattery

Posted by Dave Blount at 12:28 PM

Kudos to Victor Davis Hanson, for grasping the synergy between Islamic terrorism and moonbattery, and that of the two, the latter is a more serious threat to Western Civilization:

Bin Laden's killers tore off a great scab on September 11; at once they exposed to billions the evil of radical Islam and with it the Western world's shock, fright, and difficulty in confronting it and defeating it. That uncertainty ultimately does not arise from our enemies, but from within ourselves — this strange disease of thinking we fight back too much when we often do too little.
It was the particularly evil genius of bin Laden to see not that we are militarily weak as he alleged — indeed the United States is more powerful than ever — but that we are apologetic over the source of our bounty and the reasons for our success, to the point of a collective stasis.
The more we push for democratic change abroad, the more the democracy-hating terrorists slander us that we do not. The more we accommodate the religion and culture of detainees, the more the beheaders and bombers cry to the world that we are savage while musing among themselves that we are weak. The more that we tolerate the great asymmetry of reciprocity between Islam and the West; the more we are supposed to apologize for just that tolerance and liberality. The more we pay for outrageously priced oil, the more we are to concede that we are stealing it.
Our shock, and again their insight, is not that they level such absurd charges, but that they do so in such utter confidence that they will find a receptive audience in the West, an audience that has the desire and ability to curtail the American response.
We laugh that on this sixth anniversary a clownish Bin Laden, in dyed chin-whiskers no less, urges us from a cave in Waziristan to read more Chomsky and Scheuer. We laugh that radical Islam hates us for global warming, corporate profits, and high-priced mortgages. We laugh that its jihadists, as a result of these American "sins," were forced to kill us for the Neocons, and Richard Perle, and Hiroshima, and the 19th-century Indian wars, and all the other American crimes that Hollywood and the universities have globally peddled into a lucrative industry. But the laugh is not that fascists would so clumsily crib our Left to justify their killing, but that they are convinced that they could do so in such amateurish fashion to such great effect.
So is the joke on them or on us?
Bin Laden and his evil Rasputin Dr. Zawahiri were confident on September 11 that such guilt and self-loathing in our hearts could be seasoned, and that it could then be harvested through their own arts of revisionism, victimization, and lies. And consequently within a brief six years of his murdering, our own voices — indeed the very elites of the West — in the luxury of calm before the next attack, are often emboldened to proclaim that the government of America, not the terrorists abroad, is the real danger.
The great lesson of September 11 was not that the jihadists ever believed that they could kill us all. Rather, they trusted that enough of the West and indeed enough of us here in America, might at the end of the day declare that we had it coming.
In this long war, that belief was — and is — far deadlier even than an unhinged murderer at the controls of an airliner.

As attempts to pillory General Petraeus make clear, we can't fight the enemy that attacks from the outside before overcoming the more lethal ideological enemy that attacks us from within.

German Media Commemorates 9/11

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:29 AM

Yesterday the major German television network ZDF commemorated the anniversary of 9/11 by hyping the schlockumentary September 11, 2001 — Myth and Reality, which suggests that the American government was actually behind the Muslim atrocities (Davids Medienkritik has a translation).

Along with the piece, ZDF published a poll on who its readers think really "pulled the strings" on 9/11. The options listed give an indication of the childish and deranged mentality that predominates at ZDF:

  • Osama Bin Laden
  • Rüstungslobby (arms lobby)
  • George W. Bush
  • US-Behörden (US authorities)
  • Ich weiß nicht (I don't know)

The poll's results are more disturbing still:

ZDFpoll.gif

As you can see, only 27% understand that we did not blow up our own buildings on 9/11.

The moonbats who run the European media have created an alternate reality in which the America that defended them from fascism and communism represents pure evil and Muslim terrorists are innocent victims. Insane as it obviously is, Europeans are actually buying into it. If Europe hadn't enfeebled itself with socialism, we'd have to worry about the EU declaring war on us in defense of Islam.

More terrifying still, people right here in this country have opted to go with the bizarre alternate reality, and not only dim-witted movie stars. According to Zogby, only 53% of Progressives and Liberals believe the "official story" regarding 9/11; this number will probably continue to fall.

We are reaching the point where absolutely no lie is too grotesque for liberals to swallow, so long as it casts America as the villain.

Their party now controls both houses of Congress and could soon take the White House. The implications for America's future are obvious.

Peacenik Commits Random Axe Murder

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:33 AM

An ex-pat in the Netherlands was upset about his adopted country supporting his native USA against terrorists in Iraq, so he set off for the nearest barracks with an axe.

After spending the night in the forest outside the barracks, Carlos Hartmann of Tecumseh, Michigan concluded he couldn't get inside. So he made his way to a train station. But there were no soldiers on the platform.

With no other way to express his devotion to global peace, he buried his axe in the back of a bystander's head. The victim was student Thijs Geers.

According to Hartmann's lawyer:

He hates soldiers, and says that the army kills people, so it would be legitimate if he were also to kill someone … from the American military — or from its NATO allies.

Apparently killing a stand-in for a soldier is also legitimate. As any liberal can tell you, it's your noble aims that count, not the disastrous consequences of your sociopathic actions.

At least, thanks to Christiaan Briggs, psychotic violence from the peace and love crowd no longer catches us off guard.

Wacky Japanese Forego AC For Gaia

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:39 AM

The Wall Street Journal reports on the latest wacky Japanese fad: Cool Biz, which entails keeping office temperatures at 82°F to please Gaia.

To compensate, businessmen are encouraged to go without jackets and ties. But this doesn't quite cut it. According to Kozo Hirata, a physiology professor at Kobe Women's University, 82° is a comfortable indoor temperature only if you are thin, naked, and motionless.

Alternative cooling techniques have been encouraged. The city of Hiroshima provided four tons of recycled sewage water for "water-splashing ceremonies" that allegedly reduce the surrounding temperature by a few degrees.

Office workers squeamish about splashing sewage water on their desks have resorted to electric fans. But they'd better not use them too ostentatiously. In Shizuoka, a hotline has been set up so that whistle-blowers can report overcooling.

The effects of this idiocy on the climate can be reliably predicted at exactly zilch. The point must be to dupe people into thinking that warm weather in the summer really has become a problem that warrants draconian taxes and regulations.

Or is the whole global warming farce just an exercise in masochism? Maybe if we just passed out hair shirts to liberals, the rest of us could set the AC where it belongs.

Toronto's Moonbat Film Fest Features Kiddie Porn

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:30 PM

There's more to this year's Toronto Film Festival than tributes to Jimmy Carter's efforts on behalf of Hamas, just as former ACLU execs aren't the only ones who enjoy watching kiddie porn.

At least three screenings have been awarded to Nothing Is Private, which picks up where last year's Hounddog left off. As you might recall, the latter movie featured a 12-year-old being raped on screen.

Nothing Is Private stars a barely legal Summer Bishil, who is meant to be 13. She loses her virginity to an adult who later sodomizes her — with nothing left to the imagination. She also has an abnormal sexual relationship with a boy from school. The movie's characters are uniformly vile, and abuse the girl sexually, mentally, and physically from beginning to end.

Reviewer Roger Friedman describes the movie as verging "quite literally on kiddie porn" and "so odious that many people have simply walked out during the screenings."

In other words, it's cutting edge.

Where to next, movie people? I know: how about a pornographic movie about little boys being raped? Focusing exclusively on little girls would be sexist. Normally it would be forbidden to portray homosexuals in a negative light, but if the rapist is cast as a Catholic priest, our new priests of political correctness would be sure to grant an exception.

For an idea of where our culture is headed from there, refer to works of the Marquis de Sade.

Chavez Putting the Criminally Incompetent in Charge of Stolen Oil Facilities

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:34 PM

Socialism in action, via Upstreamonline:

Venezuela has named an engineer indicted for negligent refinery management as the new head of its Petro Anzoategui heavy oil project, which Caracas took over from US supermajor ConocoPhillips in June.
The move has raised concerns about whether state oil company PDVSA has enough qualified workers to run the four multibillion-dollar heavy oil projects in the Orinoco heavy oil belt which Chavez nationalised this year, Reuters reported.
Chavez in July introduced Manuel Medina as president of Petro Anzoategui, previously the Petrozuata joint venture between PDVSA and ConocoPhillips.
The state prosecutor's office in May said it filed criminal charges against Medina and three other employees of Venezuela's El Palito refinery for "negligent embezzlement" and damaging industry operations.
The four employees "fail(ed) to observe procedures established by corporate norms" during a maintenance shutdown in 2003 and 2004, leading to 116 spills in El Palito's alkylation unit between March 2004 and May 2007, the prosecutor's office said.

Communist thugs will always manage to strangle the goose that lays the golden eggs. Food shortages have already begun, but when Chavez and cronies have destroyed Venezuela's oil industry through corruption and incompetence, the real hunger will set in. No doubt America will be expected to send aid.

Artsy-Fartsy Moonbats Dishonor 9/11 Dead With Silly Cartoon

Posted by Dave Blount at 12:00 PM

Even moonbats acknowledge the dead on September 11 — by dishonoring them. For example, they chose today to debut 9-11/9-11 by Mel Chin.

Among the venues will be the Museum of Fine Arts in Chin's native Houston. The alleged artwork consists of a 24-minute cartoon based on a comic book. It attempts to equate 9/11 with a coup against Chilean socialist Salvador Allende in 1973, on the grounds that this also occurred on September 11.

Chin pontificates upon the objectives of his masterpiece:

I want us to resist an obsessive preoccupation with our American tragedy when so many other historic tragedies also are connected.

Resisting "an obsessive preoccupation" means embracing the progressive view that 9/11 wasn't such a big deal. Via Lucianne.com, here's someone escaping the flames at the World Trade Center who might disagree:

Cross-Dressing Freakazoids Stage "Pee-In" in Seattle Mall

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:32 AM

Two women who indulge their bizarre sexuality by pretending to be men were attending the "Gender Odyssey Conference" in Seattle earlier this month when they decided to invade the men's room in a mall. When real men objected, the freakazoids were ejected by security. Then it hit the fan.

365Gay.com reports:

The removal of the men [sic] from the washroom led to dozens of people who were attending the conference to stage what they called a "pee-in."

Imagine a mall full of militant cross-dressing weirdos urinating in protest against the tattered remnants of sanity — kind of like Dawn of the Dead as conceived by John Waters in his heyday.

Due to a recent Washington State law forbidding "discrimination" against homosexuals, transsexuals, and other assorted perverts, the he-ladies are expected to file a complaint with a human rights commission. No doubt the mall is in an expensive heap of trouble for siding with normal people instead of groveling before imperious freaks like the rest of modern society.



Teacher Regards Milk as Child Endangerment

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:41 AM

In 1984, Winston Smith was beaten and tortured until he came to see that 2+2=5. But the touchy-feely mollusks of our own growingly totalitarian regime of moonbattery disapprove of such insensitive tactics. Instead they exploit our looney-tunes legal system by filing lawsuits and child-endangerment charges.

Dave Warwak, an art teacher at the Fox River Grove Middle School in Illinois, wants the McHenry County state's attorney to file child-endangerment charges against his own school district for promoting animal products like milk as part of a healthy diet.

Warwacko also refuses to return to class until the school removes milk and all other animal products from its menu. You see, with liberals it's not enough to be a lunatic. You need to insist that your lunacy be imposed on the rest of society. This is the guiding principle of today's Democrat Party.

The former fishing guide Warwacko became a vegan only last January, but now demands that his school district immediately follow suit. This guy has a future in the Party. He has been praised by animal rights groups for ignoring orders to stop proselytizing to students about animal rights ideology.

Ironically, it is the lack of animal products in the diet that has been shown to endanger children. According to Professor Lindsay Allen, Director of the US Agricultural Research Service's Western Human Nutrition Research Center at the University of California at Davis:

Animal source foods have some nutrients which are not found anywhere else. If you're talking about feeding young children and pregnant women and lactating women I would go as far as to say it is unethical to withhold these foods during that period of life. … There's absolutely no question that it's unethical for parents to bring up their children as strict vegans.

No doubt future hate speech laws will be expanded to silence folks like Allen.

Hollyweird Does Jimmy the Dhimmi

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:57 AM

Tinseltown habitually heaps praise upon leftist dictators, while relentlessly propagandizing against America, so it is hardly surprising that the noisily treasonous Jimmy Carter would be seen as a suitable subject for a hagiography.

Yesterday Jimmy the Dhimmi joined Tinseltown leftists George Clooney and Brad Pitt at the world premiere of Man from Plains at the Toronto film festival. The movie follows Carter on an 8-month promotional tour for his appalling book Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid, widely acknowledged to be an outrageous collection of pro-terrorist lies. Don't take my word for it — listen to the liberal Alan Dershowitz. The book is so disgusting that it caused 14 members to resign from the Carter Center in protest. But as we have seen repeatedly in recent years, absolutely nothing is beneath Hollywood.

Carter held forth at the festival, spewing his usual moonbattery. He wants us to make friends with the terrorist regime he helped create in Iran. He worries about the rise of religious fundamentalism — no he doesn't mean the Muslims flying planes into our buildings; he's referring to Christians. He blames America for Palestinian terrorism, and announces that "the entire world now feels that America has let the Palestinians down."

His moronic wife chipped in, chirping that it's "shocking" that Israel would oppress terrorists by building a wall to prevent them from blowing up civilians.

You can't blame Carter for being bitter. He has discovered the secret to Middle East peace, but no one will listen to him. The key is "swapping land for peace."

Now why didn't we think of that before WWII? Oh we did, at the Munich Agreement? Never mind.

But in Israel it really will work. Once Israelis have swapped away the last square inch of their tiny country, Muslims will grant them peace — unless you count the terrorist war they have been waging against Jews and all other non-Muslims in every corner of the world.

Today's McCarthys

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:44 AM

The Left has no boogeyman more hated than Joseph McCarthy, who more than half a century ago ruined his own name by getting carried away in his attempts to defend America from our communist enemies. Yet the Left's tactics are highly reminiscent of McCarthy's, as Peter D. Feaver notes. He refers to the full-page MoveOn.org ad that the treasonous and despicable New York Times saw fit to run yesterday in an attempt to discredit General Petraeus before he could tell us of progress in Iraq:

It is a deliberate attack on the senior Army commander, in a major daily newspaper, with the intention of destroying as much of his credibility as possible so that his military advice could be more easily rejected by antiwar members of Congress.
The attack was part of an elaborate effort to undermine public support for the Iraq war, and was foreshadowed by an unnamed Democratic senator who told a reporter, "No one wants to call [Petraeus] a liar on national TV … The expectation is that the outside groups will do this for us." The effort is funded by powerful special interests, and has all the trappings of a major political campaign.
Precisely because it is so vicious, so public, and so deliberate, the attack on Petraeus cannot be ignored by either side in the Iraq debate. Supporters of the war are duty-bound, like Joseph Welch, to rise and ask of war opponents, "Have you left no sense of decency?" Antiwar members of Congress, like Senator McCarthy's allies, are obliged to answer.

Joseph Welch was the Army lawyer who famously pulled the rug out from under McCarthy by appealing to his decency. McCarthy's allies soon abandoned him. Unfortunately MoveOn.org's allies are unlikely to follow suit.

The American people have an inherent sense of decency that the media and entertainment industry have tried but failed to breed out of us. This does not bode well for today's Democrat Party.

Socialized Medicine 101

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:24 PM

Ward Churchill was only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to moonbattery at Colorado University. For a mere $3,100, students in the MBA and MS International Business programs can earn credit by traveling to Venezuela to watch Hugo Chavez choke the last gasps of freedom out of that country's healthcare system.

CU gushes of Chavez's tightening grip:

The Government of Venezuela has decided to give public health a very high priority, placing major emphasis on the training of large numbers of new doctors under a program entitled, "Barrio Adentro". This program is designed to bring medical services to every community, many for the first time. Venezuela's new Constitution approved by popular referendum and enacted in 2000 guarantees all citizens the right to health. To achieve this, it seeks to consolidate an effective primary health care network under a single ministry.

In other words, he's imposing HillaryCare — i.e., healthcare communism — which CU evidently expects business students to study and emulate.

The approach has worked well in Chavez's model, Cuba — if you listen to liberal propagandists. However, Cubans tell another story.

No doubt the Chavez regime will limit students to Potemkin hospitals, of the kind Cuba uses to spare European tourists the horror of what passes for healthcare for regular folks.

Via The Real Cuba, here are a few lessons in socialized medicine they probably don't teach at CU:

Sodom, Gomorrah, and Cornell

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:02 PM

What do you get when you cross a whorehouse with a freak show? These days, a college campus. The Cornell Daily Sun reports:

Cornell University has been making an effort in recent years to foster diversity and tolerance, promoting concepts like gender-neutrality to ensure the comfort and safety of students who Gwendolyn Dean, coordinator of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered or Questioning Resource Center called "gender non-conforming."
"One event at Cornell featuring a gender-neutral environment occured [sic] last fall in the form of Hillel-sponsored speed dating. Ga'avah, Cornell's LGBTQ Jewish group, held speed-dating for members of the LGTBQ community upstairs in Trillium."

Trillium is a 12,000-square-foot campus dining facility. Presumably "speed-dating" is a more convenient way to hook up than playing footsie in airport men's rooms. Speaking of men's rooms:

The issue of gender-neutrality comes up often regarding on-campus restrooms. There are approximately 13 universal restrooms on Cornell's campus that can be used by members of either sex. According to Dean, these restrooms are meant to protect people who don't conform to gender norms from being harassed by others.

Haven President Ashley McGovern philosophizes on perverts, Cornell bathrooms, and the institutionally encouraged degeneracy, debauchery, and depravity that are collectively referred to by liberals as "tolerance":

This is a microcosmic example of the gender segregation that occurs in our society at large, and the persistence in maintaining distinct binary gender categories; trying to make the identities of men and women vastly distinct, universal and static, which is not the case.

What kind of bizarre lunacy are they teaching young people in these snooty, overpriced, moonbat-infested universities?

The next right to be granted at Cornell: gender-neutral residence halls. Vince Hartman, the Arts & Sciences representative to the Student Assembly and Senior Class Council president, has introduced a resolution demanding them, on the grounds that denying students the "right to choose their roommates based on their preferences regardless of gender […] discriminates with the assumption that heterosexuality is universal."

Maybe homeschooling should be extended to the college years.

Madeleine Albright Joins the Preempt Petraeus Parade

Posted by Dave Blount at 1:20 PM

One of the reasons Islamic terrorism was able to fester uncontrolled through the 90s until it had progressed to the level of 9/11 is that astonishingly thick-witted Madeleine Albright was wallowing around the world as Secretary of State. Joining other moonbats in their attempts to preempt General Petraeus' report, Halfbright came out with an essay yesterday, calling on us to disregard military progress in Iraq, and crawl away with our tails between our legs.

The fate of Iraq would then be left to the ballyhooed International Community, featuring the sniveling weenies of the UN, who ran away and hid early in the conflict; the French and Germans, who more or less openly sided with Saddam; Syria, which is currently providing a conduit for foreign terrorists into Iraq; the ever trustworthy Saudis, who provided most of the hijackers on 9/11; and of course Iran, the world's leading state sponsor of Islamic terror.

Over to you, Madeleine:

Iran […] would be unlikely to isolate itself from a broad international program aimed at reconciliation. If it does, it would only hand a political victory to us and to the many Iraqi leaders, Shiite and Sunni alike, who would prefer to minimize Iranian influence.

Unbeknownst to Halfbright, anyone with an IQ in the vertebrate range can see that Iran is not going to stop using terrorism to jockey for position if the only credible resistance to its growing power — America — crawls away in self-imposed defeat.

Being a liberal, Halfbright not only wants us to lose, she wants us to abase ourselves in the process:

President Bush could do his part by admitting what the world knows — that many prewar criticisms of the invasion were on target. Such an admission would be just the shock a serious diplomatic project would need.
It would make it easier for European and Arab leaders to help, as their constituents are reluctant to bail out a President who still insists that he was right and they were wrong. Our troops face death every day; the least the President can do is face the truth.

Here's a truth that is truly difficult to face: If the Dems win in 2008, treasonous retards like Halfbright will be running our foreign policy again.

"Conservative" British Group Wants to Start Banning Appliances For Gaia

Global warming is highly unlikely to affect our standard of living — too bad the same can't be said for belief in global warming. As part of their campaign to pander to this politically correct hoax, Britain's alleged "conservatives" will propose banning appliances like plasma televisions on the grounds that they offend Gaia by using too much electricity.

The Quality of Life Policy Group, set up by Tory leader David Cameron, is also targeting refrigerators, freezers, personal computers, and DVD players for restrictions. Under the group's proposals, caps would be set on how much energy appliances can use; those that exceed the caps would be banned. This would include most plasma TVs.

The group also wants to stop using Gross Domestic Product as a measure of success in favor of "a model that measures people's happiness drawn up by Friends of the Earth."

In short, they are both authoritarians and kooks — just like Labour. It makes you wonder why people bother voting.

Dems Target Petraeus

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:12 AM

Unwilling to accept that America is winning the war, Democrats are targeting General David Petraeus in a preemptive attempt to discredit his report on progress in Iraq.

The New York Times, quasi-official organ of the Democrat Party, is running an ad by MoveOn.org, which apparently without irony denounces Petraeus as a traitor for being expected to bring news that is good for America but bad for its enemies — including internal enemies.

At this point, no one expects patriotism or responsibility from the New York Times, but even US Senators are participating in attempts to smear Petraeus. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) accuses:

I don't think he's an independent evaluator.

In other words, Petraeus is a stooge who will tell lies on behalf of the Bushitler regime.

Even the atrocious Joe Biden (D-DE) will grudgingly admit that there has been "some mild security progress" in Iraq — which can be interpreted to mean that the USA is kicking terrorist ass big time. But he says Petraeus is "dead flat wrong" if he doesn't want to retreat immediately.

Harry Reid (D-NV), who announced months ago that America has already been defeated by the terrorists, has come right out and called Petraeus a chronic liar without even waiting to hear the report. Reid sits atop a Senate that unanimously approved Petraeus as commander of US forces in Iraq earlier this year.

Meanwhile Dick Durbin (D-IL), who has publicly compared our troops to Nazis, is threatening to choke off their money supply.

As the Dems in the Senate and media are making clear once again, America's most dangerous and despicable enemies aren't in Iraq, Iran, or a cave in Pakistan. They are right here in this country, doing everything in their insidious power to destroy it from within.

Bin Laden's Perfect Hiding Place

No wonder no one could find bin Laden. He's been hiding where no one ever looks — on MSNBC. As John Gibson suggests, there could be a very good reason Osama bin Laden and rabid moonbat Keith Olbermann have never been seen together:

When Gibson says "Bathtub Boy," he is of course referring to Olbermann, who is said to hide in his bathtub when frightened.

G.I. Joe Coopted by Moonbats

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:05 AM

Not even G.I. Joe is safe from the corruption of moonbattery. After defending America from our enemies since the 1940s, the erstwhile "Real American Hero" abandons the U.S. Special Forces to become a defender of progressives' ultimate totalitarian dream, world government.

In a new movie to be distributed by Paramount, G.I. Joe has been perverted to stand for "Global Integrated Joint Operating Entity." According to Fox News:

The word is that in the current political climate, they're afraid that a heroic U.S. soldier won't fly.

Our country is at war, but according to Hollyweird, heroic American soldiers just aren't trendy.

As blogger Warner Todd Huston laments:

It's the last spit in the face of our military. The doll was G.I. Joe, the government-issued guy who was a hero and American. It was celebrating this one heroic soldier. They want to take even that away.

Sometimes it seems as if our real life G.I. Joes are fighting for a country that no longer exists. But America is still here, buried under the moonbattery. Hopefully it will reemerge before it suffocates.

Billionaire Oprah Hauls in Cash For Osama Obama

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:29 AM

If the philosophical outlook of the entertainment industry makes sense to you, Barack Hussein Obama could be your man. He's certainly Billionaire Oprah Winfrey's man. Fox News reports:

Oprah Winfrey rolled out the red carpet Saturday for Barack Obama at a gala fundraiser attended by high-wattage stars that was expected to raise $3 million for the Democratic presidential candidate.
The most powerful woman in show business celebrated her favorite candidate with 1,500 guests at her palatial estate in this coastal enclave south of Santa Barbara Tickets to the sold-out private event went for $2,300 apiece, keeping them within campaign finance limits.
Stevie Wonder performed for guests, who included Sidney Poitier, Forest Whitaker, Chris Rock, Cindy Crawford, Jimmy Connors, Linda Evans, Dennis Haysbert and many others. Will Smith, Jamie Foxx and Halle Berry also were expected[…]
Visitors were bused to Winfrey's secluded home from an equestrian center about 10 miles away. A solid line of limousines, BMWs, Bentleys and a few hybrid Priuses disgorged well-dressed guests.

When is Toyota going to come out with a stretch limo version of the Prius? There would certainly be a market for it among the fat cat fools who grease the wheels for Barry Hussein.

Oprah isn't any easier to take seriously than Phil Donahue, but she is actually quite powerful. Not only does she have $1.5 billion in the bank, but she controls a massive army of zombies whose shallow Weltanschauung is formed by daytime television. She's already raised over $58 million for Osama Obama's absurd candidacy. He must be very glad to have her as his sugar mama.

Ex-ACLU Big Wig Charles Rust-Tierney Gets Light Sentence For Sadistic Kiddie Porn

Posted by Dave Blount at 12:39 PM

Remember Charles Rust-Tierney, the former president of the ACLU's Virginia chapter who put that organization's campaign to legalize child pornography in a new light by getting busted for buying it? He's been sentenced to 7 years, a year less than the minimum suggested under federal guidelines.

WaPo reports:

Charles Rust-Tierney, 51, pleaded guilty in June to downloading hundreds of pornographic images of children as young as 4. Authorities said Rust-Tierney used a computer in his 11-year-old son's bedroom to view the files, which included a six-minute video that depicted sexual torture of children, set to a song by the rock band Nine Inch Nails. […]
Authorities said Rust-Tierney used his home computer to purchase Internet access to commercial child pornography Web sites at least five times between March 2005 and October 2006, spending about $420. During one two-week span, he accessed more than 850 digital image and video files of child pornography on one site. Many of these files showed children under the age of 12 being forced to engage in sexual acts with adult males, authorities said.

In addition to his ACLU activities, Rust-Tierney worked as a public defender representing the mentally ill in DC, and coached youth baseball, football, and soccer teams.

District Court Judge T.S. Ellis III, who handed down the relatively lenient sentence, told Rust-Tierney:

Your life really presents a mystery as to why there are two — two — Mr. Tierneys. Charles Tierney, the one who devoted his life to good works … [and] the other Charles Tierney, who committed serious crimes.

The real mystery is how a judge could be so naive as to see any inconsistency between advancing the ACLU's agenda, assisting the criminally insane, taking positions that involve contact with kids, and indulging in child pornography.

"Path to 9/11" DVD Suppressed?

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:45 AM

A little foretaste of life under the Shrillary regime:

Remember the miniseries "Path to 9/11," which made Slick Willie's fans blow a gasket because it refused to pretend he was as interested in catching bin Laden as he was in molesting interns? Its DVD release is on indefinite hold — apparently because the Hillary camp doesn't want it out.

As La Times reports:

With no date for the release, questions are being raised about whether political pressure is behind its current status as a stalled or discarded DVD project. The reasons are murky, but the miniseries' writer, Cyrus Nowrasteh, believes it's crystal clear: Powerful forces are out to protect Bill Clinton's presidential legacy and shield Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) from any potential collateral damage in her bid for the White House.

The miniseries received seven Emmy nominations and drew 25 million viewers in two nights, so it isn't for lack of interest that we can't get the DVD.

Nowrasteh has received death threats for not whitewashing Clinton's irresponsibility. He warns:

Whatever anyone may think about me or this movie, this is a bad precedent, a dangerous precedent, to allow a movie to be buried. Because the next time they'll go after another movie. The Bush administration may go after a movie. The next administration may go after a movie. No matter who it is, they may go after a movie. I think this town needs to stand up.

As unlikely as it is that Bush would try to dictate to Hollywood, it's more unlikely still that the town will grow a spine. Tinseltown will find it much easier just to suppress anything that Queen Shrillary wouldn't like.

Even leftist Oliver Stone seems to understand the implications:

This is a shame; it's censorship in the most blatant way. I'm not vouching for its accuracy — it's a dramatization — but it's an important work and needs to be seen.

As you'll recall, unscrupulous Democrat heavyweights like Harry Reid leaned heavily on ABC when the miniseries was first made, even threatening to pull ABC's broadcast license. They weren't quite able to kill the project, but did force revisions.

Given the climate in Hollyweird, it's a miracle the miniseries was made at all — the sort of miracle that isn't likely to be repeated.

Giuliani: Illegals Aren't Illegal

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:11 AM

Uh oh. Rudy Giuliani may not be quite so strong on security as he sometimes seems. From an interview with Glenn Beck:

GLENN: But isn't illegal immigration a crime in and of itself?

GIULIANI: No. […] I know that's very hard for people to understand, but it's not a federal crime.

GLENN: It's a misdemeanor but if you've been nailed, it is a crime. If you've been nailed, ship back and come back, it is a crime.

GIULIANI: Glenn, being an illegal immigrant, the 400,000 [illegals in NYC] were not prosecuted for crimes by the federal government, nor could they be. […] One of the things that congress wanted to do a year ago is to make it a crime, which indicates that it isn't.

GLENN: Should it be?

GIULIANI: Should it be? No, it shouldn't be because the government wouldn't be able to prosecute it. We couldn't prosecute 12 million people.

His solution? A "technological fence" that would signal the Border Patrol to come and politely ask the invaders to go away before they enter. But even a real fence wouldn't be sufficient if illegals know all they have to do is make it to US soil and they're home free because we don't have the will to enforce our laws.

Is there a security issue more critical than our government's craven refusal to defend America from invasion? If not, Rudy had better rethink his position or stop presenting himself as strong on security.

One day it will sink in that we can't have security without dealing with illegals.

Will Thompson Save Us From Global Warming Moonbattery?

Posted by Dave Blount at 12:13 PM

Even as the global warming hoax runs out of gas, momentum carries it forward as plodding bureaucrats use it as an excuse to impose crippling taxes and regulations. Few in politics have the courage to attack the nonexistent "consensus" propped up by the liberal media.

One exception is Senator James Inhofe (R-OK), who was hammering away at the hoax even before the scientific tide began to turn against it. Another could be Fred Thompson, whom Inhofe considers a potential champion against the Gulfstream Goracle and his pernicious acolytes.

Per CNS News:

"The Republicans will need a nominee for president who is willing to tell the truth, and so far the one out there with the most courage is Fred Thompson," said Inhofe. "He is aware of all the issues I've raised on global warming, and right now he's the only one I see who is willing to take this on."
Unlike many of his fellow Republicans, Thompson has demonstrated a willingness to confront elite opinion, Inhofe said. While Thompson is sure to antagonize the news media with his stand on global warming, Inhofe thinks he will find a receptive audience among average Americans.

He will also find a receptive audience among many scientists. For example, Ian Wilson, former operations astronomer at the Hubble Space Telescope Institute, has concluded that thanks to the Kyoto Protocol, the world is spending "trillions of dollars" that will result in negligible environmental impact. But:

Inhofe, now the ranking minority member of [the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee], said the political class continues to press ahead with policy prescriptions modeled after Kyoto despite the evidence that undermines man-made global warming theories.
While the U.S. government has not officially signed on to the Kyoto Protocol, state and local officials have been calling for caps on carbon dioxide emissions. In July, New Jersey became the first state to mandate significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.
With the U.S. Supreme Court officially declaring carbon dioxide a pollutant, Inhofe sees more opportunities for mischief among politicians eager to seize control of the private sector. A strong presidential candidate, who is not cowed by adverse press coverage, will be needed to help reverse this trend, and Thompson could do that, said Inhofe.

Someone better had. Global warming may not be a threat in the scientific sense, but politically, its danger could hardly be overstated. There is no extreme of authoritarian left-wing fanaticism that couldn't be justified with global warming dogma.

Thompson could be the one to put a stop to global warming moonbattery.



Al Franken For Senate Still Not Funny

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:28 AM

Amazingly enough, the obnoxious comedian Al Franken — known for his extreme left-wing political views — could still conceivably be elected to the Senate from Minnesota, with the help of cash infusions from his well-heeled Hollyweird friends.

No doubt Franken would transcend partisanship and reach across party lines in the interest of mature and responsible government. Via the Wall Street Journal, a couple quotes give insight into his mentality:

From Mr. Franken's 2005 book, "The Truth (With Jokes)"
"Republicans are shameless d**ks. No, that's not fair. Republican politicians are shameless d**ks."
From Mr. Franken's 2003 book, "Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them"
"But you know, I don't want to get into a whole partisan politics thing here. Not in this book, anyway. We'll leave that for my next book, I F***ing Hate Those Right-Wing Motherf***ers!, due out in October 2004."

You would think even the Democrat Party would have the self-respect to keep this vulgar and belligerent fool off a Senate ticket. But if Chappaquiddick Ted Kennedy and Hanoi John Kerry are allowed in the Senate, anything's possible.

Kucinich Sucks Up to Terrorist Dictator, Turns Up Nose at American Troops

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:45 AM

Thank you Dennis Kucinich, for making it clear to anyone with two brain cells to rub together whose side the Democrat Party is on in the clash between civilization and one of its most nightmarish alternatives. From WND:

After praising Syria following a meeting in Damascus with President Bashar Assad, Democratic presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich declared he will not visit troops in Iraq during his Middle East tour because he considers the American military presence in Iraq to be illegal.
"I feel the United States is engaging in an illegal occupation … I don't want to bless that occupation with my presence," Kucinich said in Lebanon, according to the Associated Press. "I will not do it."

Imagine Kucinich thinking that his presence on free soil could ever be a blessing.

But it's no surprise that he was welcome in Syria, which is rivaled only by Iran in its open support for Islamic terrorism and hostility toward the USA. Many of the foreign terrorists our troops are fighting in Iraq enter the country through Syria, with Baby Assad's implicit consent. Syria has formed a military alliance with our enemy Iran, and supplies critical support to Hezbollah and Hamas. For all intents and purposes, Syria is at war with the United States.

In more honorable times, Kucinich's behavior would have landed him in front of a firing squad. But if we were still living in those better days, he and other Democrats would never have the courage to flaunt their treason so openly.

Liberals Spew Bile at Seahawks For Being Polite to the President

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:00 PM

Liberal tolerance has shown its ugly face in Seattle, after Seahawk stars Matt Hasselbeck and Mack Strong went beyond the pale by presenting President Bush with a No. 43 jersey at a fundraiser for Rep. Dave Reichert in nearby Bellevue.

The local response was harsh. Bile was spat at Hasselbeck via voice mails, emails, and text messages. One loyal fan told him:

I hate you, I'll never wear your jersey, I'll never like the Seahawks again.

Whined a moonbat on a seattlepi.com blog:

To learn that two of the most popular Seahawks are strong (Bush) supporters ruins the season for me and my family.

This, for simply showing respect for the President of the United States.

It should be noted that while Hasselbeck and Strong tilt Republican, they once visited alleged Washington Governor Christine Gregoire and gave her an autographed football. Hasselbeck has met with Al Gore. I doubt they lost many Republican fans.

But then, Republicans just aren't tolerant like liberals.

Year Wait For Prostate Cancer Surgery Under Socialized Medicine

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:12 AM

The beauty of capitalism is that it allows resources to be distributed to meet needs as naturally as water seeking its level. Consider all the goods available at your local supermarket, all of them stocked fresh as often as needed. What would it be like if it were left to government bureaucrats to accomplish such a complicated task?

Socialized healthcare in Canada offers a clue. Since the free market has been taken out of the equation, resources are not distributed rationally. For example, there are four times as many urologists practicing in Nova Scotia as in Newfoundland, although Nova Scotia has less than double the population.

The shortage of urologists in eastern Canada is so severe that patients are waiting about a year for surgery. Laments Andy Grant, a member of a St. John's prostate cancer support group:

First of all, [patients deal with] the shock you might have prostate cancer, then the shock of being confirmed with prostate cancer. Now you have the shock of saying, "I have to wait until next year?"

Actually, they don't have to wait: there's still a free country right across their southern border. But having already paid excessively for their healthcare through taxes, not all Canadians can afford to pay again to actually see a doctor down here.

Not to worry though, the bureaucrats are on top of it. According to the inaptly named Health Minister Ross Wiseman:

We're in the process now of developing a physician human resource plan, and we hope to be able to, either in the early fall or late winter, roll out that strategy. [This] will identify the kinds of specialties and family practice doctors we have — where we need them [and] how many we need — and that will give us then a blueprint for the future.

Look for a workable solution to be successfully implemented sometime around when hell freezes over. In the meantime, tell your prostate cancer to wait.

DiCaprio Global Warming Movie Bombs

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:29 AM

Greenpeace cofounder Patrick Moore isn't the only one with no use for Tinseltown weenie Leonardo DiCaprio's attempt to climb aboard the global warming bandwagon just as an axle breaks and the wheels fall off.

Narrated and cowritten by DiCaprio, and based on a book by Err Un-American leftist Thom Hartmann (aspiring Senator Al Frankenberry's replacement), The 11th Hour has grossed a pathetic $417,913 from ticket sales 18 days after its release.

This despite plenty of friendly hype from The New York Slimes and See BS. The film is so boring that the audience reportedly fell asleep even at moonbat-infested Cannes.

Thankfully, The 11th Hour probably won't earn back what it cost to make. When the global warming hoax stops being profitable, Hollyweird will move on to its next bogus crusade, which with luck will be less economically pernicious.

Now We're Supposed to Be Afraid of Popcorn

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:46 AM

Add popcorn to the long list of things to fear:

A fondness for microwave buttered popcorn may have led a 53-year-old Colorado man to develop a serious lung condition that until now has been found only in people working in popcorn plants.
Lung specialists and even a top industry official say the case, the first of its kind, raises serious concerns about the safety of microwave butter-flavored popcorn.

The alleged problem is diacetyl, which ads the buttery taste and occurs naturally in dairy products. Hot diacetyl turns into a vapor that can cause damage to the lungs if inhaled often enough.

An overweight furniture salesman who referred to himself as "Mr. Popcorn" had been eating microwave popcorn at least twice a day for ten years. Reports his doctor:

When he broke open the bags, after the steam came out, he would often inhale the fragrance because he liked it so much.

The doctor told him to stop eating microwave popcorn. Six months later, the guy has lost 50 pounds and his lungs are better.

Screams Rep Rosa DeLauro (D-CT):

The government is not doing anything!

Look forward to popcorn ads that include a mandatory discourse on its alleged dangers. If those don't work, maybe government monitors could be installed in each home to ensure we don't eat popcorn for every meal.

Also look for popcorn prices to jump through the ceiling, when John Edwards types start looting the industry.

Global Warming Ending World, Africans Hardest Hit

It's going to get wetter and drier.

Now Global Warming Causes Heart Attacks

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:23 AM

Still not taking global warming seriously? How about this: it could cause… it could cause… it could cause heart attacks! That's the ticket! Forsake your modern ways or climate change will make your heart stop ticking!

The reasoning goes like this:

In higher temperatures, we sweat to get rid of heat. During that process, blood is sent to the skin where temperatures are cooler, which opens up the blood vessels. In turn, the heart rate rises and blood pressure drops. That combination can be dangerous for older people and those with weakened cardiovascular systems.

This explains why when people start to get older, they leave Florida for the nice cool Northeast.

Venezuela: Spanish For Zimbabwe

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:03 AM

Zimbabwe isn't the only potentially rich country whose economy is disintegrating under the inept regime of a leftist dictator. Hugo Chavez has a lot of room for error with all the oil revenue pouring into Venezuela. But no amount of money could make socialism work.

Even the left-leaning International Herald Tribune admits:

The Venezuelan economy, under the direction of President Hugo Chávez, is starting to unravel in the currency market.
While Venezuela earns record proceeds from oil exports, consumers face shortages of meat, flour and cooking oil. Annual inflation has risen to 16 percent, the highest in Latin America, as Chávez tripled government spending in four years.

The bolivar is down 70% since Chavez took power in 1999. A big devaluation is expected in the first quarter of 2008, when Chavez will issue new currency with three zeroes cut off the end of all denominations. Imagine if the $100 bill in your pocket turned into a $1 bill.

Only socialists could manage to destroy an economy that should be floating in money. Oil accounts for 90% of Venezuela's exports, and prices are up 155% over the past 5 years.

Look out, Colombia. In a few years real hunger will start to set in, and refugees will be pouring through the jungle across the Venezuelan border with the desperation of boat people trying to escape communist Vietnam. Another prediction: no matter how bad the unfolding catastrophe in Venezuela gets, moonbats will learn absolutely nothing from it, and our Democrat Party will continue to pull America toward socialism.

Ecoweenies Impose Third-World Enslavement For Gaia

Posted by Dave Blount at 2:13 PM

The leader of Britain's allegedly conservative party, David Cameron, offsets his carbon emissions the old-fashioned way: by enslaving the natives of India.

Cameron buys eco-indulgences from Climate Care, a company that discourages the use of modern technology among farmers in the Third World. As Brendan O'Neill puts it:

Cameron can fly around the world with a guilt-free conscience on the basis that, thousands of miles away, Indian villagers, bent over double, are working by hand rather than using machines that emit carbon.

Climate Care has been providing treadle pumps to poor families in rural India, so that they don't have to oppress the polar bears by using diesel engines. Treadle pumps could be found in British prisons up until a century ago, when they were banned because forcing convicts to use them was considered inhumane punishment.

Finding that "the best source of renewable energy is the human body itself," Climate Care expresses satisfaction on its website that children can be made to operate the treadle pumps.

O'Neill again:

Feeling guilty about your two-week break in Barbados, when you flew thousands of miles and lived it up with cocktails on sunlit beaches? Well, offset that guilt by sponsoring eco-friendly child labour in the developing world! Let an eight-year-old peasant pedal away your eco-remorse…

An added bonus of imposing primitive farming techniques on India is that the more people die of starvation, the fewer will be around to poison the ecosphere by exhaling CO2. Also, it will help prevent Indians from working their way out of poverty. If everybody in India started jetting around like David Cameron, think of all the carbon emissions! A couple centuries of that and the temperature might go up by half a degree or more.

Another Climate Care scheme involves forcing Indian peasants to burn dung instead of wood. Hey, easier for them to heat their little huts with dung than for Al Gore to use it to heat his whole mansion.

Speaking of conspicuous consumers, Britain's Prince Chucklehead, the world's leading argument against in-breeding, also buys off his eco-guilt by funding the fiends at Climate Care.

Do-Gooder Moonbats Poison Bangladesh

Posted by Dave Blount at 1:11 PM

Socializing medicine is only the beginning. Moonbats aspire to a higher objective: one-world government. The UN is laying the groundwork. Its countless agencies give us a taste of what life will be like under the thumb of benevolent bureauweenies in progressive utopia. UNICEF, for example, has poisoned the water supply in Bangladesh:

The story beggars belief. In the 1970s, international agencies headed by the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) began pumping millions of dollars of aid money into Bangladesh for tubewells to provide "clean" drinking water. According to the World Health Organization, the direct result has been the biggest outbreak of mass poisoning in history. Up to half the country's tubewells, now estimated to number 10 million, are poisoned. Tens, perhaps hundreds of thousands will die.
Why? Because nobody tested for the natural poison, arsenic, widely found in underground water. And when a doctor did find traces of the metal, and when Bangladeshi villagers did start turning up at doctors' surgeries with the tumours and telltale signs of arsenic poisoning, the results were swiftly buried so that nobody made the connection.
Even now as the scale of the calamity emerges, nobody is admitting culpability. Not UNICEF, which initiated the tubewells programme and paid for the first 900,000 wells, nor the World Bank, a fellow sponsor.

The bureaucrats had made up their mind that Bangladeshis should shun surface water, and instead pump up what the locals call the "devil's water." Now they say it will take 30 years to find all the poisoned wells — longer than it took to drill them. Belated attempts by the international bureaucracy to address the disaster it created remain mired in — what else? — bureaucracy.

Theodore Dalrymple takes this opportunity to help explain why private industry doesn't stand a chance against transnational do-gooders and their embryonic world government:

Let us perform a small thought experiment. Let us suppose that a commercial mining company had, in the course of its operations, poisoned the water supply of 70,000,000 people in this quite specific way. Would that have been regarded as "a sad irony", an unintended consequence of its search for profit, or perhaps as something rather more sinister and indeed typical of the way such companies operate? Would there not have been large demonstrations, probably turning soon to violence, against that company by those in the developed world who habitually express their solidarity with the impoverished victims of exploitation by their own nations' multinationals? It is unlikely that we would ever hear the end of the matter — in such a case, quite rightly.

However, since the main culprit is an agency of their beloved UN, the moonbats running the media haven't been able to work up much outrage over this story — if they've even acknowledged it.

Moonbats Tilt at Windmills

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:20 AM

It looks like windmills will not be the solution to our imaginary ecological crisis.

As noted yesterday, in addition to regarding fossil fuels and nuclear power with horror, moonbats oppose dams because they supposedly make it be too hot out and windmills because they inconvenience ground squirrels and wreck the view from the mansions of limousine liberals like Ted Kennedy and Walter Cronkite.

Now we learn that there are plenty more reasons to stand in righteous opposition to Gaia-raping windmills, and I'm not referring to their inefficiency. A moonbat activist in Cairnbrook, Pennsylvania

fears that a Gamesa Energy USA proposal to build 30 wind turbines on nearby Shaffer Mountain could endanger the hawks, falcons and, especially, the eastern golden eagles that fly low to feed along the Allegheny Front.

The problems don't stop there:

Many residents also oppose the project because of concerns about degradation of two "exceptional value" streams, impacts on the endangered Indiana bat, flashing strobe lights on the turbine towers, blade noise, forest fragmentation, tourism, aesthetics and even rattlesnakes.

Yet by goofing around with windmills, power companies are only obeying liberal bureaucrats' demands.

By law, the state must produce 18 percent of its energy from alternative sources by 2020, and the Rendell administration's goal is to boost wind power production to more than 3,000 megawatts during the next 15 years. That would require construction of about 1,400 wind turbines.

What a hassle life must be for the people who generate the power that makes our comfy lives possible. Imagine if they just said, "You're right, creating electricity oppresses bats and rattlesnakes. We're not going to do it anymore."

Not even liberals would like the consequences.

Hollyweird Airheads Bash Bush, America From Europe

Wrong Way Flanagan

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:33 PM

Foolishly taking global warming propaganda at face value, British yachtsman Adrian Flanagan thought he ought to be able to make the first solo Arctic sea passage across northern Russia. After all, the ice is melting, right?

Wrong. Flanagan has been stopped by ice, and wants Russia to send a nuclear-powered icebreaker to carry his boat off to safety.

His own safety ought to be his first concern. Polar bears, supposedly endangered by global warming, are one of the very few species that will hunt down and kill human beings for food, which probably explains their immense popularity among environmentalists. Flanagan has been warned that the area where he's anchored is crawling with them.

Flanagan's wife describes his mood as "pretty fed-up." The same could be said for everyone else who has come to realize that global warming is a crock.

Envirokooks Oppose Hydroelectric

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:46 AM

The envirowacko campaign against modern civilization continues with claims that even dams cause global warming.

Squawks Patrick McCully of International Rivers Network:

Often it's accepted that hydropower is a climate friendly technology but in fact probably all reservoirs around the world emit greenhouse gases and some of them, especially some of the ones in the tropics, emit very high quantities of greenhouse gases even comparable to, in some cases even much worse than, fossil fuels like coal and gas.

The idea is that vegetation upstream of a dam will rot, releasing the same gases dead things have been releasing for millions of years, but which have suddenly become toxic in accordance with environmentalist dogma.

IRN has been opposing the construction of dams all around the world since before the global warming hoax was cooked up. But like every other antihuman moonbat sect (including even PETA), they are opportunistically hooking their cart to the climate change mule.

Moonbats obstruct the use of fossil fuels, nuclear, and hydroelectric. Even inefficient but politically correct windmills are opposed because they might oppress ground squirrels or affect the view for rich leftists like Ted Kennedy and Walter Cronkite.

How are we supposed to generate the power to run civilization? We're not: civilization is the problem that liberalism is attempting to cure.

Antimoonbat Countergraffiti

Non-moonbats usually find more civilized ways of expressing themselves than spray-painting public property. But the Left's lunatic calls for surrender to Islamic terrorists should never go unanswered.

Free Phones For Hobos Maybe Not Such a Good Idea

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:11 AM

A crank caller who often goes by "Nomar" has been tying up emergency services in Vallejo, California with nearly 2,000 fake calls, sending emergency crews on goose chases with claims that he has had a heart attack, seen an injury accident, attempted suicide, been robbed, etc.

The calls come from San Francisco, to which rampant moonbattery has attracted derelicts from all over the country and beyond. Nomar appears to be one of them. His phone has been traced back to a company in Oklahoma that donated old employee cell phones to homeless people.

Authorities can't track down Nomar through his service carrier because he doesn't have one. Any cell phone can call 9-1-1 whether the owner has paid for service or not.

The do-gooder cell phone donors must be very pleased to have given Nomar something to do with his time. But the only thing you can give to the homeless that accomplishes any good is work.



Brits Catching on to Environmentalism Scam

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:15 AM

Just because Brits are succumbing to moonbattery doesn't mean they're stupid. According to a poll by YouGov, two thirds are aware that bureaucrats are exploiting the environmentalism fad as an excuse to expropriate more tax loot.

Studies back them up. One finds that the average British family is paying £400 more in special environmental taxes than it would cost to cover its alleged "carbon footprint." Green taxes raked in £21.9 billion in 2005; the supposed cost of carbon emissions that year was £11.7 billion.

Since the cost of carbon emissions is a fictional concept that experts pull out of their hats, if British bureaucrats are smart too they will make sure scientists understand that continued funding is contingent on revising theses costs upwards.

Another study finds that of all the money the British government expropriates in the name of Gaia, only 2% is given back in tax breaks. Targeted tax breaks would discourage pollution, but would also require bureauweenies to part with some of the money they so aggressively covet.

9/11 Was Just "Airplane Accidents"

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:51 AM

No wonder libs don't seem to think 9/11 was a big deal. According to Angelika Claussen, Chairwoman of the German branch of International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War, the Muslim terror attack on the World Trade Center that killed nearly 3,000 innocent people was actually just a couple of "airplane accidents." Watch her interviewer on Germany's coercively financed public television fail to react to this characterization:

At least she didn't say Bush was responsible.

Doctor Visits Mandatory Under Edwards' Socialized Medicine

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:49 AM

Guided by the liberal credo "That Which Isn't Forbidden Must Be Mandatory," John Edwards has announced that he wouldn't just socialize medicine — he would make visits to government bureaucrat-doctors obligatory:

If you are going to be in the system, you can't choose not to go to the doctor for 20 years. You have to go in and be checked and make sure that you are OK.

Who will be in the system? Why, "every single American."

Mental health would also be covered. You had better keep bad thoughts to yourself if you don't want to end up in a psychiatric facility.

From mandatory doctor visits, it will be a short hop to mandatory morning calisthenics, with a two-way telescreen to make sure you're taking part, just like in the liberal how-to manual 1984.

In other Edwards news, the Breck Girl admits he owns a new Ford Escape and a Chrysler Pacifica — both SUVs. As you'll recall, the other day he demanded that we peasants give up our SUVs, just as we will be asked to give up our freedom, our money, and our first-class healthcare if by some catastrophe a leftist like Edwards is elected.

Moonbat Artist Joe Rebholz Exploits Fallen Troops

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:36 AM

Hollyweird has-been Brian De Palma isn't the only treasonous moonbat to use his "art" to facilitate American defeat in Iraq. Tucson artist Joe Rebholz has been collecting images of fallen American soldiers to photoshop for his propagandistic exhibits.

Given the current political climate, he feels no need to hide his treasonous motives:

One of my ideas is to point out the cost of this war and make people think about whether it's worth it.

This is exactly what motivates al-Qaeda and Iranian-backed terrorists to set off bombs in crowded marketplaces and to maim our troops with IEDs. The objective is to undermine our resolve. When that happens, democracy dies: first in Iraq, then eventually here.

Arizona has a law against making a profit off the name or likeness of American personnel killed on foreign battlefields. The ACLU is fighting it of course, but they needn't bother, because there is a loophole large enough for a moonbat to drive a Prius through: an exception for anything its creator chooses to call "art."

Needless to say, Rebholz didn't get permission from the families of the soldiers whose deaths he exploits on behalf of those they died fighting.

Even Greenpeace Cofounder Pans DiCaprio Flop

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:36 PM

Tinseltown twit Leonardo DiCaprio's attempt to emulate his idol the Goracle can't even get a good word from the cofounder of Greenpeace.

DiCrappio narrated and cowrote The 11th Hour, which makes the case that human civilization is a bad idea, because people keep cutting down trees, thus causing cuddly animals to die of global warming.

But Greenpeace cofounder Patrick Moore points out that the carbon absorbed by trees is released back into the atmosphere if they're left to die and decompose:

Rather than cutting fewer trees and using less wood, DiCaprio and [longtime activist Tzeporah] Berman [who is featured in the movie] ought to promote the growth of more trees and the use of more wood. There is a misconception that cutting down an old tree will result in a net release of carbon. … Berman, a veteran of the forestry protest movement, should by now have learned that young forests outperform old growth in carbon sequestration.

If CO2 in the air really were a problem, it would make the most sense to cut down trees so that we can make houses out of them, then plant new trees — which is what our forestry industry is for.

You could hardly expect a twinkie like Leoretardo to know anything about science, but he might have picked a slightly less ignorant authority than Berman. But then the Goracle got away with relying on guys like NASA's sneaky James Hansen, a media whore who has been getting rich off the global warming hoax.

So far DiCaprio's movie has grossed $171,000 — probably about what he spends on manicures each year.

Democrat Party Organizes Against Pro-Troop Tour

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:52 AM

Move America Forward is launching a "Fight for Victory Tour," which will set off tomorrow with a rally in Carson City, Nevada, and climax with a giant "Let Our Troops Win" rally in DC on September 15. With all the contentiousness in politics these days, its nice to see rallies in support of something that no American could oppose — our troops' victory over Islamic terrorists in Iraq.

But wait, I'm forgetting the Democrat Party, which is organizing counterrallies in an attempt to shout down those who support our troops. A small sampling:

Democrats often claim that they too support the troops. This is an example of the "Big Lie" technique — as Hitler put it, telling a lie so outrageous that people don't believe anyone "could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously."

Their foreign policy is quite simple. It calls for the defeat of America and democracy and the triumph of terrorism and Islamic theocracy. That they are democratically elected should cause any reasonable person to shudder with horror.

Move America Forward is a nonpartisan group that welcomes anyone from any party who supports our troops and their mission. Its Fight for Victory Tour will feature 27 pro-troop rallies. Here's the route it will take:

Pete Seeger Proves It's Never Too Late to Grow Up

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:06 AM

Folk singer Pete Seeger, who was born in 1919, subscribed to the communist publication The New Masses in 1932, formally joined the Communist Party in 1942, and declared "I'm still a communist" as recently as 2004, has figured out that his old hero Joseph Stalin was not such a nice guy.

Though his singing voice "has been reduced to a throaty croak," Seeger has written a new song entitled "The Big Joe Blues." The lyrics include the lines:

I'm singing about old Joe, cruel Joe.
He ruled with an iron hand.
He put an end to the dreams of so many in every land.

Seeger went on several propaganda junkets to the Soviet Union during the height of the Cold War in the 1960s. Now he says:

I think I should have though, when I was in the Soviet Union — I should have asked "Can I see one of the old gulags?"

Seeger is 88 years old. Maybe there's still hope for Jane Fonda.

Schism in Moonbattery's Unholy Church

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:10 AM

Christianity has Catholics and Protestants. Islam has Shiites and Sunnis. Moonbattery may also be headed for a schism.

Al Gore, the jet-set High Priest of Antihuman Environmentalist Extremism, has preached that we must give up safe vehicles and putter around in little high-mileage deathtraps to demonstrate our subservience to Gaia. But PETA kooks prefer to focus on the notion that eating meat makes it be too hot out.

The animal rights nuts cling to a claim by the bureauweenies at the UN Food and Agriculture Organization that farm animals generate more greenhouse gas emissions than all forms of transportation combined, largely due to their (the animals') endless farting. If we didn't eat cows and pigs, we wouldn't raise them. If we didn't raise them, they wouldn't exist in significant numbers. Limit their numbers and we can limit their farts, thus saving us all from warm weather.

You would think that self-proclaimed advocates of animals would want to increase their numbers, but the animal rights movement is about hurting humans, not helping animals.

One of the humans they want to hurt is Al Gore, who will be delivering a sermon at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver October 2. The PETA kooks plan to be there with trucks toting billboards that will feature a cartoon of the Goracle eating a drumstick and the message:

Too Chicken to Go Vegetarian? Meat Is the #1 Cause of Global Warming.

Thanks PETA. If the global warming hoax is still considered by any credible person as anything but a joke, this should help straighten them out.

However, if moonbattery prevails, the joke will be anything but funny, as moonbat bureauweenies will use the whole "food causes global warming" notion to impose on us a diet that will not allow for healthy human development.
