Palestinian Illegal Immigrant Sues NYPD

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:59 PM

An illegal immigrant from the West Bank is suing the NYPD on the grounds that it failed to abide by Michael Bloomberg's seditious promise not to cooperate with federal immigration enforcement.

Waheed Saleh alleges that a cop tipped off immigration officials as to his unlawful presence in the country, in violation of Mayor Mike's irresponsible policy of not reporting illegal aliens until they commit further crimes. Saleh isn't exactly a model undocumented American; he drives an unlicensed cab, has a habit of getting into fights, and is believed to have tried to run someone over with his car. His case is based on the claim that ICE was tipped off only as revenge for a series of unsubstantiated complaints he has made against the police.

Instead of being set packing back to Terroristland with a boot print deeply embedded in his backside, Saleh is now wasting everyone's time and the taxpayers' money with a lawsuit that he may even win — assuming he shows up for court; he was let out on bail and his current whereabouts are unknown.

No country can be run like this indefinitely and survive.

One reason to start taking immigration enforcement seriously.

Fatuous Moonbat Slogan of the Day

In honor of Cesar Chavez day, Phoenix refused to pick up my garbage, and a moonbat at Bowling Green State University stood around holding this sign:


The people of Tibet will be glad to hear that the Dalai Lama's approach must have worked after all. Say, why didn't we try using nonviolence to defend ourselves on 9/11?

Selective Lessons

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:06 PM

Being a moonbat means learning only the lessons you want to learn. For example, a gunman pushed his way into the home of 77-year-old Illinois State Rep. Wyvetter Younge and stole her purse.

Being a Democrat, Younge drew the following conclusions from her experience:

This robbery and what's happening to this community is the result of a lack of a supportive system for our youth. We need jobs. This happened in broad daylight at noon. We need a mental health support system. This is further evidence of that.

As a result of the robbery, Younge is out $7. As a result of the kind of legislation she is likely to promote to make the system more supportive, taxpayers will be out $millions.

See if you can pick which one is more likely to rob you blind:

Moonbats Hold Up Wal-Marts for 5 Years

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:47 AM

Humans won a small victory over environmentalists Friday when a judge finally ruled after a five-year legal battle that Wal-Mart can build a couple of stores in Bakersfield.

The stores were green-lighted by the Bakersfield City Council back in 2003. But then a group of moonbats calling itself "Bakersfield Citizens for Local Control" stepped in. Opposition was largely based on Wal-Mart supposedly not having completed a satisfactory environmental impact report, though the chain was later asked to prove that its wide selection and low prices wouldn't put any other stores out of business. So much for economic freedom.

Lee Jamieson, the developer of one of the stores, observes:

This had nothing to do with the environment, this had to do with labor unions and shutting down Wal-Mart. [Moonbats used environmental law] as a club, and used it to blackmail people — and they did a good job of that.

That's what environmental law tends to be for. The primary objective isn't to save polar bears from their imaginary threats, but to cripple the capitalist system by any means possible, the better to usher in socialism.

Local Global Warming

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:53 AM

With even the U.N.'s IPCC admitting that global warming simply isn't happening, the media has been reduced to digging for evidence of local global warming.

I was startled to learn that here in the Southwest, the phenomenon has reached crisis proportions without my even noticing. Allegedly the temperature in the Colorado River Basin during 2003-2007 was 2.2°F hotter than the twentieth century average, which we're asked to believe has been causing economic havoc in the country's fastest growing region.

Next they'll attempt to induce panic by reporting that March has been warmer than February.

Jamaal Turner Is Dating Again

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:29 AM

Young women in search of a friendship that could develop into a relationship have the opportunity to "hit up" Jamaal Turner via the website Inmate-Connection.

Turner's very short relationship with first-grade teacher Bridget Kelly didn't turn out so well. They met when he broke into her home, kidnapped her, robbed her, raped her, beat her, shot her three times, and left her for dead. Her story is featured today on the show I Survived.

Her father, journalist Michael Kelly (not the Michael Kelly who died in Iraq), describes the climax of their date:

The rapist didn't want to look her in the eyes as he killed her, so he told her to turn around. From about five feet away, he fired a 9 mm bullet into her back, just left of her spine. The bullet missed her heart and exited below her left breast. She fell. He stood over her and fired again. The bullet entered her upper-left buttock, ripped through her colon and exited just above the pubic area. For good measure, he fired again, the third bullet slashing across her lower back and creasing the flesh of her right elbow.

Somehow she survived. Jamaal Turner shouldn't have.

Dating again.

Anti-KKK Book Banned by Thought Police

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:27 AM

Just how far does the Left want to take the brand of totalitarian thought control euphemistically called "political correctness"? A story from Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis offers a clue:

Keith Sampson, a janitor and part-time student at IUPUI brought the book Notre Dame vs. the Klan: How the Fighting Irish Defeated the Ku Klux Klan by Todd Tucker to work. Black coworkers disapproved; apparently they couldn't be bothered to read the whole title, but saw the words Ku Klux Klan and wanted it banned. The school's Affirmative Action Office shared their point of view.

Sampson received a menacing letter from the Thought Police [PDF], chastising him for showing "extremely poor judgment" and reminding him that if he is ever caught reading the book in the presence of his coworkers, he could be subject to "serious disciplinary action."

How long before Tucker's book is removed from libraries because blacks decide it's "offensive"? What will be the next topic we are forbidden from even reading about?

Obama: Babies Are Punishment

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:57 AM

The get an idea of the moral depravity personified by Barack Obama, you don't have to listen to the obscenity-laced anti-American rants of his 20-year mentor, Jeremiah Wright. Obama's own words get the message across loud and clear.

Obama on the miracle of childbirth:

Look, I got two daughters — 9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first about values and morals, but if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby.

Imagine learning about "values and morals" from a guy who thinks of children as punishment for not having gotten an abortion.

Will Richard Williams Join Obama Campaign?

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:27 PM

After 20 years of mentorship, Barack Obama was forced to terminate Jeremiah Wright's official role as an advisor two weeks ago. Obama must be in dire need of a new sounding board who can impart the sort of wisdom that will unite us so that we can Hope for Change.

I know just the man for the job: Richard Williams, father of the successful tennis stars Venus and Serena. A few of his wise words:

The white man hated me all my life and I hate him. That's no secret. I'm not even an American, it just so happens I was born in America. People are prejudiced in tennis. I don't think Venus or Serena was ever accepted by tennis. They never will be. But if you get some little white no-good trasher in America like Tracy Austin or Chris Evert who cannot hit the ball, they will claim this is great.

If Jeremiah Wright had gone into tennis instead of pseudo-religious leftist demagoguery, he might have said the same.

Williams would fit nicely in Obama's inner circle.

Hollywood Backs Chavez, Chavez Backs Al Qaeda

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:59 PM

Thor Halvorssen of the Human Rights Foundation has put his finger on why Hollywood likes the brutal socialist dictator Hugo Chavez so much:

What tickles [Sean] Penn and his ilk is that Chavez is the world's most visible opponent of the United States and the U.S. government.

Chavez's opposition to the USA has taken forms even more unseemly than allowing his ring to be kissed by treasonous vermin like Penn, Danny Glover, Kevin Spacey, Baba Wawa, Harry Belafonte, Oliver Stone, Cindy Sheehan, Naomi Campbell, et al.

After escaping to the USA, Air Force Major Juan Diaz Castillo, formerly Chavez's pilot, reported that Chavez responded to 9/11 by transferring $1 million to the Taliban, designating $900,000 for al Qaeda. The idea was to let Osama bin Laden know he has an ally in Venezuela, so long as it's under Chavez's thumb. On September 12, 2001, Chavez supporters burned an American flag in Caracas's main square.

America must be destroyed: it's the one thing all evil people can agree on.

Planned Parenthood Makes Record Profits

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:09 AM

Not all the economic news is grim:

A new annual report from Planned Parenthood shows the nation's largest abortion business has made over $1 billion in income for the first time in its history. The non-profit [sic] pro-abortion group shows the historical gain in its new annual report covering 2006-2007. […] Planned Parenthood reveals it has doubled "excess of revenue over expenses" funds from $55.7 million in 2005 to $112 million in 2006.

This cash bonanza results in part from increased productivity:

The report shows an increase in the number of provided abortions from 264,943 in 2005 to 289,650 in 2006.

Of course, the nonprofit status doesn't hurt. Neither does receiving over $336 million in government grants. What goes around, comes around: $10 million of that will go back to bureaucrats in the form of donations to pro-abortion candidates.

Cheer up, kid. You'll be helping Planned Parenthood's bottom line.

British Bus Driver Kicks Passengers Off to Pray to Allah

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:55 AM

As Britain degenerates into a carnival of Islam and moonbattery, even riding the bus becomes a challenge. In Langley, Berkshire:

A MUSLIM bus driver told stunned passengers to get off so he could PRAY. The white Islamic convert rolled out his prayer mat in the aisle and knelt on the floor facing Mecca. Passengers watched in amazement as he held out his palms towards the sky, bowed his head and began to chant.

When passengers complained that they had to get to work, the driver kicked them off. After he was done praising Allah, he let them get back on, but having noticed his potentially explosive rucksack, no one was willing to.

The driver, who calls himself Hrun, calmly explains his behavior:

I asked everyone to get off because I needed to pray. I was running late and had not had time.

Idiot Hour

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:52 AM

It's not often that I advise people to visit Google, a company that uses its immense power to close off traffic to sites not conforming to its leftist ideology. But you really have to check out its home page today:


Don't you just love trying to read white type on a black screen?

The idea is that Google has "turned the lights out" for Earth Hour, an event that entails moonbats pretending they have attained their dream of dragging humanity back to the Dark Ages.

A still more precious dream to militant moonbats is total conformity. We are to turn our lights off from 8:00 to 9:00 this evening per our local time zones, not because anyone who doesn't live in a padded room thinks it will improve the weather, but to demonstrate our obeisance to envirokooks' antihuman ideology.

This is why all reasonable people are called upon to turn on every light in their house during Earth Hour. Any hardship this imposes upon the polar bears will be more than made up for by all the energy Google is saving with their sanctimonious black screen.

Actually, Google admits that the black screen saves no energy at all. But it does cause eye strain. So long as we suffer for Gaia, that's the important thing.

Moonbats turned the lights off on Syndey Harbor Bridge. The planet is safe now.

Geert Wilders' Fitna, Take Two

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:54 PM

Last night I embedded a LiveLeak video of Geert Wilders' film Fitna. But as you may have heard, LiveLeak has taken it down due to death threats from the Religion of Peace, from which our leaders are not willing to make a serious attempt to protect us.

Now the video is hosted on Moonbattery's server. Say Anything has it up too.

The liberal establishment thinks we have no right to see a film that warns us of the threat we face from Islam. Yelps the U.N.'s contemptible Ban Ki-moon:

I condemn in the strongest terms the airing of Geert Wilders' offensively anti-Islamic film. There is no justification for hate speech or incitement to violence. The right of free speech is not at stake here.

The right of free speech is only the beginning of what's at stake. When we give that up, everything else we have will soon follow.

Here again is Geert Wilders' Fitna, which offers a glimpse of the world that awaits us if we don't have the spine to stand up to Islam and the quislings who would turn us over to it:

We'll know this is no longer America when Muslim thugs and their dhimmi collaborators can tell us what we can or cannot watch.

Red Light Cameras Deemed Too Effective

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:46 AM

Did you think the purpose of traffic fines is to make the roads safer? Guess again: it's to raise revenue for ever-expanding government. A case in point:

Dallas officials reviewed the numbers and decided that a quarter of the cameras they had installed to catch motorists running red lights were too effective. So they shut them down.
They are not alone. Faced with data showing that drivers pay attention to cameras at intersections — resulting in fewer ticketable violations and ever-shrinking revenue from fines — municipalities across the country are reconsidering red light cameras, which often work too well.

Good thing murder isn't punished with fines. Local officials would be handing out knives and slipping PCP into the beer at Yankees-Red Sox games in hopes of driving up revenue.

Is Lettuce Already Back to His Old Tricks?

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:29 AM

After the last time John McCain tried to ram through amnesty for the millions of illegal aliens colonizing our country, citizens rejected the treacherous attempt to undermine our sovereignty so resoundingly that he was left for dead politically. Yet he came back, like an unkillable fiend in a horror movie, purring that he had learned his lesson, and that he is now willing to stop undermining the defense of our country from foreign invasion.

Has Lettuce McAmnesty changed his spots? According to Blue Dog Rep. Heath Shuler (D-NC), the answer is a resounding no.

Shuler bucked his own party in an attempt to bring the Secure America through Verification and Enforcement Act to the House floor. The bill would strengthen border security and require employers to verify the status of new employees.

"It was going great until McCain blocked it," Shuler said.
McCain, a U.S. senator from Arizona, called Republicans in Congress and asked them not to sign the petition, Shuler said. He said after McCain's intervention, Republicans in the House were less willing to sign onto the bill.

A McCain spokesman denies everything. I hope the spokesman wasn't Juan Hernandez, the "ethnocentrist, border obliteration activist" who used to head up Mexico's Office of Mexicans Abroad, and was signed up by the McCain campaign as Hispanic Outreach Director.

At least, anybody but Obamination or Shrillary.

Goracle: Doubting His Prophecies Is Like Saying the Earth Is Flat

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:38 AM

As the hoax crumbles, and even his coconspirators on the U.N.'s IPCC quietly admit that there is no global warming, manmade or otherwise, Al Gore is ratcheting up the rhetoric:

Confronted by [CBS's Lesley] Stahl with the fact some prominent people, including the nation’s vice president, are not convinced that global warming is man-made, Gore responds: "You're talking about Dick Cheney. I think that those people are in such a tiny, tiny minority now with their point of view, they're almost like the ones who still believe that the moon landing was staged in a movie lot in Arizona and those who believe the world is flat," says Gore. "That demeans them a little bit, but it's not that far off," he tells Stahl.

Here's a better comparison: Al Gore and others who expect us to let ourselves be repressed and exploited, to diminish our standard of living, and to reverse the progress of civilization, all in the name of the global warming hoax are like evil priests still asking us to sacrifice our firstborn children to Moloch.

Obama's Church Sets Up Reverend Wrong in $1.6 Million Mansion

You can make quite a nice career out of denouncing America and white people in the name of Black Liberation Theology. Check out the 10,340-sqare-foot, $1.6 million, gated-community mansion B. Hussein Obama's church is building for his mentor Jeremiah Wright:


The home comes complete with a $10 million line of credit.

Ironically, when he's not spitting venom at Whitey or screaming "God damn America," Wright is often denouncing materialism. Maybe he figures that materialistic values encourage people to hold onto their money instead of giving it to him.

The only downside to his new digs: there might be white people in the neighborhood. Let's hope there are no Italians, who have earned the high honor of particular hatred from Obama's "sounding board." In a eulogy written last year, he referred to Italians' "garlic noses" and "Apartheid Rome," and even called Christ's crucifixion "a public lynching Italian style" (according to BLT ideology, Jesus was black).

Confirmed: Global Warming Isn't the Problem, Civilization Is

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:04 AM

At last a little honesty from the enviropsychos behind the global warming hoax. Kate Rawles, lecturer at the University of Cumbria and a flaming moonbat, sets off some echoes at Greenbang:

Greenbang: What do you think is wrong with the debate on climate change?
Dr Kate: It hasn't really got to grips with the fundamental problem, which is that Western, industrialised lifestyles are literally unsustainable. Climate change is just one symptom of this. WWF famously calculated that if everyone on earth were to enjoy the lifestyle of an average Western European, we would need three planet earths.
Not even the most optimistic believers in technology think that we can technofix this problem so that 6 billion people (let alone the projected 9 billion) can enjoy a western lifestyle without ecological meltdown. It follows that we urgently need to rethink what we currently mean by a "high standard of living" and move away from materialistic versions of this to an understanding of quality of life that could be enjoyed by everyone, without causing environmental mayhem. This is about values, not just about technology.

WWF in this context stands for World Wildlife Fund, not World Wrestling Federation — although the level of scientific credibility is about the same.

While preaching to the choir "Dr. Kate" lets slip the actual objectives of environmentalists: to keep the poor poor, and force the rich to join them, using whatever totalitarian measures will be required.

For thousands of years, the story of mankind has been an upward striving to improve our condition. Now this cult of evil lunatics wants us to reverse that trend, and force us to deliberately worsen our condition.

No matter how much they may care about polar bears, environmentalists clearly do not care about human beings. Even Nazism benefited Nazis. Radical environmentalism is so profoundly depraved that it does not benefit anyone. Yet this sick, pro-poverty ideology has so much influence in this country that we would rather buy oil from our enemies than drill for it in a godforsaken wasteland like ANWR.

Cop-Killer Mumia Abu-Jamal Given Another Break

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:21 AM

The boobs running our judicial system continue to dither around concerning the case of Mumia Abu-Jamal, who with the help of overwhelming evidence was convicted of murdering Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner a generation ago.

The psychopathic Abu-Jamal is in a class with Tookie Williams when it comes to personifying the reason we need the death penalty. Yet a federal appeals court has refused to reinstate the death sentence he so richly deserves.

No one in his right mind doubts Abu-Jamal's guilt. The court upheld his first-degree murder conviction. It's just a question of how seriously we want to take shooting police officers in the back. The race card is being played yet again, with Judge Thomas L. Ambro whining that blacks weren't given a chance to apply jury nullification to the case of a brother killing a white cop.

The odds that this scum won't die of natural causes are long. In the meantime, maybe he can tape some more college commencement addresses, as he has for U.C. Berkeley, Antioch College, Occidental College, and Evergreen State College.

Snuffing Out the Lights in San Francisco

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:09 AM

Taking effective action based on liberals' demented beliefs would result in catastrophe. Fortunately, they are often forced to settle for symbolism. Nothing could be more symbolic of where progressives would like to take us than snuffing out the lights that in turn symbolize mankind's triumph over the darkness:

San Francisco's picturesque skyline would be dark at night under a first-in-the-nation law proposed Tuesday that would mandate all skyscrapers turn off nonemergency lights after work hours. […] Under the proposal, energy-wasting scofflaws would face fines for each floor where lights are on, with $50 for the first infraction, $100 for the second and $250 for any subsequent violation. The proposal would also require businesses undergoing major renovations to install devices that would automatically turn off lights when nobody is in a room.

Ken Cleaveland of the Building Owners and Managers Association of San Francisco points out that any businesses wasting electricity are already being fined by higher electric bills, and that 90% of them in the city's downtown area are small businesses that can ill afford more government greed. But that doesn't change the fact that they are capitalist oppressors who must be punished for the sake of the polar bears.

For added symbolism, San Franfreakshow will participate in Earth Hour on Saturday, by encouraging people to turn off lights for an hour to help them envision a world without humans, on behalf of the World Wildlife Fund.

NUT Nuts Impose Dhimmitude on British Schools

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:19 PM

Britain's National Union of Teachers, aka NUT, doesn't think representatives of the military should be allowed in schools unless they're forced to denounce themselves. But don't go thinking these militant moonbats are closed-minded. They have nothing against Muslim imams coming to speak at public schools. In fact, they insist on it.

Also, meals will have to meet religious requirements, i.e., be halal. Prayer rooms must be provided. Holidays must take into account festivals and special days, presumably meaning Ramadan, Osama bin Laden's birthday, etc. Catholic and Anglican schools would be forbidden from "discriminating" against Muslim students.

In NUT's defense, the numbers do suggest that Islam is becoming Britain's predominant religion — unless moonbattery counts as a religion.

Japanese Moonbats: Baseball Causes Global Warming

Soon baseball season will be underway at last. Enjoy it while you can; our national pastime has been found to exacerbate the nonexistent global warming crisis:

Japanese professional baseball players have vowed to shorten playing time per game as part of the national pastime's contribution to the fight against global warming.
They will aim to cut playing time by six percent, or 12 minutes, from the average of three hours and 18 minutes per game, the Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB) commissioners' office said.
"When a professional baseball game is staged, a huge amount of carbon dioxides, a cause of global warming, is discharged because it requires use of energy to move players and spectators, supply electricity for lighting and other purposes and dispose of food and drink waste," NPB said in a statement.

Let's hope trimming a few minutes off of games is enough to save the polar bears, so the game doesn't have to be banned altogether.

Charlie Crist Open to Paying People for Being Black

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:31 AM

Possibly the most preposterous notion to come from the radical Left is that blacks should be given free money expropriated by force from everyone else as a reward for having ancestors who were given a hard time — just like the ancestors of every human being on the planet. I won't insult the reader's intelligence by explaining the absurdity of thinking this unjust and profoundly moronic concept would improve race relations. But someone needs to explain it to Florida's Governor:

The resolution stops short of calling for reparations for descendants of slaves, though Republican Gov. Charlie Crist said after the vote that he was open to the idea "if we can determine descendancy, certainly."

The resolution in question consisted of idiots like Crist wallowing in the neurotic white guilt that is creating monsters like Barack Obama and his circle of America-hating, racist kooks.

Horrifyingly, Crist appears to be under consideration for McCain's VP. There are limits to what conservatives can forgive.

Give out your money, Crist. Not ours.

Moonbats Go After McCain's Teeth, Smashed by Communist Torturers

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:54 AM

You can attack McCain from the right on immigration, oil drilling, global warming malarkey, freedom of speech, etc. But attacking him from the left is more of a challenge. Moonbat Molly Priesmeyer has been reduced to running a piece at Minnesota Monitor with this headline:

The dental gap: Does John McCain have presidential teeth?

McCain is accused of having teeth that "look like a mess of yellowed and contorted Chiclets."

Maybe Molly doesn't realize that they look like that because McCain had them broken off at the gumline at the Hanoi Hilton, while serving his country with the sort of courage and honor that would make a progressive's lip curl. But no: she does know, but the story remains on Minnesota Monitor's front page anyway. It doesn't look like an apology from Prissmeyer will be forthcoming.

Minnesota Monitor is bankrolled by George Soros, whose lackeys boast of having bought and paid for the Democrat Party.

Hugo Chavez Scared of John McCain

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:57 AM

Despite his flaws, John McCain does have a few things going for him. Most importantly, he is not Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton. Also, belligerent socialist thug Hugo Chavez seems to be afraid of him:

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said Republican Presidential candidate John McCain was seeking to promote war with Venezuela.
"Maybe he's seeking hawkish votes, from the right in Florida," Chavez said at a press conference today in Caracas with foreign correspondents. "Still, whoever wins we want to have better relations with the next U.S. president."

The "right in Florida" must be a reference to the many Cubans who have settled there, after having risked life and limb to escape a regime identical to the one Chavez has been establishing in Venezuela with Hollywood's effusive approval.

Chavez realizes that the thought of President McCain has made him wet his pants.

Obama's Church: Being Designated a Terrorist State by USA Is "a Great Honor"

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:36 AM

More hate-filled lunacy from the bizarre ultra-Left cult that serves Barack Obama as a church — from its newsletter, via Media Mythbusters Blog:


So Jesus wasn't a Jew, but the first Palestinian! Too bad the nasty Jews killed him, just like they've planned to kill blacks and Arabs with an "ethnic bomb," and Christians with their sinister "death squads."

I'll bet you didn't know that Libya was designated as a terrorist state not because it kept blowing up discos and airliners, but for opposing the righteous African struggle against white racists, which has turned out so magnificently in Zimbabwe. No wonder Obama's mentor Reverend Wrong and his colleague Louis Farrakhan were so keen to meet with Muammar Khaddafi.

Barack Obama has been attending this church since he was in this 20s, and gives to it generously. There are people walking around unsupervised and unmedicated who want him in the White House.

Beeb Teams Up with NUT against British Army

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:43 AM

The British Army does not actively recruit in schools, but will send in representatives if invited by schools to give kids an idea of what the military is about. According to the National Union of Teachers (which goes by the apt acronym NUT), this will not do.

The execrable BBC is only too happy to provide a soapbox for teacher Paul McGarr, who holds forth at length about what military personnel should be required to tell kids before being allowed into schools:

Join the Army and we will send you to carry out the imperialist occupation of other people's countries. Join the Army and we will send you to bomb, shoot and possibly torture fellow human beings in other countries. Join the Army and we will send you probably poorly equipped into situations where people will try to shoot or kill you because you are occupying other people's countries. Join the Army, and if you survive and come home, possibly injured or mentally damaged, you and your family will be shabbily treated.

Imagine if similar requirements were imposed on teachers unions and leftist media outlets like the BBC. They might be commanded to warn:

Become a moonbat and spew hysterical rubbish. Become a moonbat and stab your society's most honorable members in the back. Become a moonbat and assist the Muslim terrorists who want to kill you. Become a moonbat and behave like a snot-nosed child your entire life. Become a moonbat, and you'll deserve to be shabbily treated, because you will be shabby.

Skipping School Can Be Noble

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:31 PM

A bus tour by the group Vets for Freedom passed through the Twin Cities area today. It was to stop at Forest Lake High School, from which founder Captain Pete Hegeseth graduated. But the school didn't want the vets sullying the campus with their heroism, so they had to speak at the Forest Lake American Legion instead — where they were heard by dozens of students who skipped school to attend.

The vets were supposedly be "too political" to allow on campus. Apparently, local educrats didn't want kids exposed to what Hegeseth had to say:

I was out there for three days outside the neighborhood outside the green zone and I didn't hear a single shot fired or a single explosion. Markets were open, the Iraqi Army was out on the street corner — that's not political, that's what I saw first hand.

It's not political — but trying to prevent students from hearing it sure is.

Transgender Freakazoid Thomas Beatie Is Pregnant

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:03 PM

Men are men and women are women, much as moonbats might like to think otherwise:

Thomas Beatie, who used to be a woman, appeared in the most recent issue of The Advocate, a magazine for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender readers, Portland, Ore., television station KPTV reported.
Beatie wrote the article, which includes a picture of him while he was 22 weeks pregnant.

Used to be a woman? Obviously, she is still a woman, despite having herself physically and pharmacologically mutilated by a medical system that forgot the Hippocratic Oath long enough to indulge her in her morbidly depraved fantasies.

She is "married" to another woman. Who did the impregnating was left out of the story, which dutifully refers to her as "him."

Moonbat Professor: Let's Abandon the Written Word

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:23 AM

It's a good thing the education field is completely dominated by moonbats, because they're always the ones who come up with cutting-edge ideas — like no longer teaching children how to write:

My son, who is in third grade, spends much of his school day struggling to learn how to form the letter "G." Sometimes he writes it backwards. Sometimes the tail on his lowercase "T" goes the wrong way. His teachers keep telling him he may fail the state assessment standards. We have had several "interventions." Simon now fears taking up a pencil. Repeatedly being told his handwriting is bad (a fine-motor-skill issue) has become, in his mind, proof that he is a bad writer (an expression issue). He now hates writing, period.
This is absurd: I am a college professor and a freelance writer, and the only time I pick up a pen is to sign a credit-card receipt. Let's stop brutalizing our kids with years of drills on the proper formation of a cursive capital "S" — handwriting is a historical blip in the long history of writing technologies, and it's time to consign to the trash heap this artificial way of making letters, along with clay tablets, smoke signals, and other arcane technologies.

So, because her kid has a challenge to overcome, civilization should abandon the millennia-old tradition of the written word. I guess it'll be worth it, if it raises little Simon's self-esteem, without requiring him to exert any effort.

Michael Moore: "A Ferret with a Real Bad Thyroid Condition"

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:05 AM

As even moonbats can attest, liberal icon Michael Moore is one of the world's most unappealing human beings. A former employee is auctioning off the signed copy of Moore-on's diatribe Downsize This!, which he apparently received in lieu of pay for two weeks of work. Here's what he has to say on eBay:

Not to come off as some Right-Wing looney (I'm pretty darn liberal, obviously - otherwise I wouldn't have worked for the man), but the above autographed book is all I have from working for Michael Moore for two weeks. Hypocritical bas*ard! […]
Ya see, back in the days when I was younger and less crushed by life, I got the great opportunity to work as an Asst. Office Manager for Mr. Moore's production company, Dog Eat Dog Films. IT WAS THE MOST OPPRESSIVE JOB I HAVE EVER HAD! Almost the entire staff was comprised of unpaid interns, who did everything from pick up his dry-cleaning, to babysit his daughter. My job largely consisted of fielding calls from former interns, all begging Mr. Moore to at least send them a letter of recommendation (he never did). I was expected to work until 9PM every night, for no extra pay! Mr. Moore was a genuine WEIRDO who would view you as Mark David Chapman if you acknowledged his existence, but be insulted if you didn't seem in awe of this large celebrity! He had a big red copy of the Collected Marx on the bookshelf, right below his Emmys - which was odd, because I had seen him give a speech at IFFM a week earlier where he went out of his way to bring up during an anecdote that he'd never read, or even owned a Marx book. (nothing against Marx, mind you, but geez… It was a weird way to start the first day of work!)
Mr. Moore's staff provided NO TRAINING AT ALL to the intricacies of his very weird office, except for one briefing document that described what food the office must always have (I'm not joking at all, people! There was a half-page about Baked Lays potato chips)! Basically, after about a week of feeling like a pre-teen in an Upton Sinclair novel, I got the hell out of there! The horror was too much to bear. Ah well. I faired better than my roommate of the time, the guy who got me the job. He INTERNED for Mr. Moore for about 18 solid months. No pay whatsoever, and he COULDN'T EVEN GET A NICE REFERENCE LETTER from this meatnormous documentarian, even after a year of trying! (And I'm not even gonna get started on the difficulties this guy has had in the years since). Can you believe that crap? He's a HYPOCRITICAL BUTT-TASTER! He may make some real funny flicks, but it was like working for a ferret with a real bad thyroid condition.

Britain Going to 15 mph Speed Limits

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:01 AM

The latest jaw-dropper from Airstrip One:

Speed limits of just 15 miles-per-hour are to be introduced on major roads in planned new towns across the country as part of an effort to reduce global warming.

A speed limit that low will make cars no faster than bicycles. Traffic will be an absolute nightmare, with it taking everyone three times as long to get where they're going. The express purpose of totalitarian bureauweenies is to make driving so unpleasant that people will give up on using cars.

Next for Britain will be a complete ban on internal combustion engines, to be followed by restrictions on all post-medieval technology.

Meanwhile, even the U.N.'s IPCC admits that "global warming" — i.e., the slight warming trend experienced in the 80s and 90s — ended a decade ago.

If the British are going to revolt, they had better do it soon, while they still have a civilization to defend.

Twin City Moonbats Claim to Be Arming Themselves with Tasers

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:40 AM

If militant moonbats have their way, the Democrat convention won't be the only one where all hell breaks loose. From RNC Welcoming Committee:

The RNC Welcoming Committee (RNC-WC), an anarchist and anti-authoritarian organizing body based in the Twin Cities, announced today that it has ordered tasers for each of its members and friends. The announcement comes on the heels of last month's St. Paul City Council approval of a St. Paul Police Department (SPPD) request for 234 tasers. Due to a unique corporate-anarchist confidentiality agreement, the exact number of tasers or documentable evidence of this new order will not be disclosed.
Both the SPPD and RNC-WC taser orders are scheduled to arrive before the September 1 so-called Republican National Convention (RNC) in St. Paul.

Fortunately, anarchists are unlikely to acquire any weapons they can't find while Dumpster-diving, or buy with the change they sneak from their moms' purses.

Bad News from NY Times: Americans Living Longer

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:12 AM

Americans — both rich and poor — are living longer. The New York Times is appalled:

New government research has found "large and growing" disparities in life expectancy for richer and poorer Americans, paralleling the growth of income inequality in the last two decades.
Life expectancy for the nation as a whole has increased, the researchers said, but affluent people have experienced greater gains, and this, in turn, has caused a widening gap.

Could it be that the same factors that cause people to generate more wealth (e.g., self-discipline) also cause them to live longer? Nope; that doesn't stand up to the Gray Lady's Marxian analysis.

If you've ever seen Logan's Run, this ought to give you a chill:

The Democratic candidates for president, Senators Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York and Barack Obama of Illinois, have championed legislation to reduce such disparities[…]

Obviously wealth distribution doesn't go far enough to impose "social justice." We'll need a mandatory death age, to be sure that those living healthier lifestyles don't oppress those who spend their welfare checks on Big Macs and cases of Milwaukee's Best by living longer.

Not all Democrat ideas come from the Communist Manifesto.

More Shady Obama Connections

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:32 PM

While Barack Obama was a State Senator in Illinois, he sat on the nonprofit Woods Fund. This put him in a position to make shady but lucrative quid pro quo arrangements with his former boss Allison Davis and crooked slumlord Tony Rezko.

Also sitting on the board of the Woods Fund was William Ayers, an Obama fundraiser who is best known as the Weather Underground terrorist who announced in the September 11, 2001 edition of the New York Times that he didn't go far enough in his terrorist activities directed against the United States, which included setting bombs. He lived in hiding for years, but eventually emerged and escaped prosecution on a technicality. Unsurprisingly, he is now a college professor. It was at the home of Ayers and fellow terrorist Bernardine Dohrn that Obama was introduced into the cesspool of Chicago area politics.

While Obama was on the board, the Woods Fund awarded a $70,000 grant to the Arab American Action Network, a local group founded by Rashid and Mona Khalidi. Soon the Khalidis returned the favor, holding a fundraising event for Obama in his home. Rashid Khalidi is a well-known terrorist sympathizer who used to be director of the PLO press agency WAFA. He's a college professor too now.

As of yet, no connections have been found between Obama and the Symbionese Liberation Army — a point in favor of the SLA.

Joy Behar Reveals: Obama Isn't Racist

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:54 PM

It turns out Barack Obama and his demagogic pastor Jeremiah Wright aren't racists after all. They hate Whitey, all right — as Reverend Wrong makes abundantly clear in his sermons, and Obama through his choice of associations and in his book Dreams from My Father. But it's not racist to hate white people. Take it from ABC's noted philosopher Joy Behar:

[W]hen I was in college, I studied sociology. And what we learned is that racism is an institutional thing. It's not like, it's something that goes from the top down. In other words it's not something- if somebody is- you can't be racist if you're in the oppressed minority. It goes the other direction. The majority is racist to the oppressed minority.

Professor Behar then went on to inform her audience of slack-jawed idiots that it is "scientifically incorrect" to call black bigots racist for hating whites.

Tune in to The View tomorrow; Behar might explain why it isn't unpatriotic for blacks to hate America, getting Obama and his circle of America-loathing, ultra-Left racists off the hook altogether.

Dystopian Britain Gets a Little Scarier

[The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill] will permit lesbian couples to be registered as legal parents for the first time, allow the creation of human-animal hybrid embryos for scientific research and remove the requirement on IVF clinics to consider a child's need for a father.
It will also give the green light to the creation of "saviour siblings" — children genetically selected to be a donor for a sick brother or sister.

The next step will be keeping live babies in vats of fluid in case we need their livers later.

Labour MPs who haven't rid themselves of vestigial remnants of decency have to go along or else:

The last shake-up of fertility laws, in 1990, was subject to a free vote under the then Tory government. But so far Labour has refused to follow tradition on issues of conscience and allow MPs to vote as they wish on the legislation.
Instead, they face a whipped vote, meaning they could face disciplinary action if they refuse to support it.

Since We Won't Drill Our Oil, Cuba Will

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:22 AM

Sick of high gas prices? Don't blame the oil companies or even the Arabs. Blame moonbats:

Soon there will be rigs 45 miles off the coast of Florida tapping into oil and gas reserves nearly as large as those contained in a tiny frozen part of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. But the rigs will belong to Hugo[ Chavez]'s friend and ally, the Cuba of Fidel and Raul Castro.
The U.S. Geological Survey estimates that the North Cuban Basin contains as many as 9.3 billion barrels of oil (multiply by $100 plus) and almost 1 trillion cubic feet of natural gas.
Thanks to an agreement negotiated by Jimmy Carter that splits the 90 miles of water between the U.S. and Cuba for economic purposes, it will not be exploited by us. Since pools of oil do not respect international boundaries, Cuban rigs will be sucking dry oil that rightfully should be ours.

We don't extract the oil ourselves for the same reason we don't use the zillions of gallons waiting in the ANWR wasteland: environmental extremists dictate our energy policy.

At least prices should be coming down for Cuba.

Zimbabwe Blazes a Trail into the Future

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:57 AM

Zimbabwe provides another glimpse into America's eventual future, if through pure moonbattery we turn the country over to Barack Obama et al.:

President Robert Mugabe's regime is stepping up its intimidation of Zimbabwe's white farmers as he seeks a sixth term in office.
A few hundred landowners managed to stay put on small portions of their original properties despite Mr Mugabe's land seizures, which began in 2000 and destroyed commercial agriculture, the backbone of the economy. But the president's re-election campaign ahead of next weekend's election is driven by the notion that the country's independence is under threat.
He has long presented the farm confiscations as part of Zimbabwe's struggle for freedom.
Deon Theron, a vice-president of the Commercial Farmers Union, is on trial in Harare magistrates' court. He faces a two-year prison sentence if he is convicted of trespassing on the farm he bought 24 years ago.
His farm in Beatrice, about 40 miles south of Harare, used to produce about two per cent of all the milk consumed in the capital, but an eviction order was issued against the Therons a year ago. […]
Scores of white farmers who have survived daily torment from Mr Mugabe's travelling "war veterans" are now appearing in shabby courtrooms around the country, accused of defying eviction orders.
Zimbabwean-born George Fick and his wife Jill, who are also dairy farmers in Beatrice, went on trial in Harare this week and were told by the state that their desire to remain in their home was "frivolous and vexatious".

Meanwhile, inflation in Zimbabwe has hit 100,000%, and people are starving. But at least Mugabe's righteous campaign against Caucasian farmers has landed Zimbabwe the top position on the U.N.'s Sustainable Development Commission.

Animal Planet Goes Moonbatty

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:01 AM

Watched mostly by children and old people, Animal Planet is now targeting a more lucrative demographic by plunging off the deep end of moonbattery in an attempt to be "edgier":

A network crew returned to port in Australia last week after tagging along on a mission to interfere with a Japanese whaling expedition in the Antarctic. A miniseries about the experience, "Whale Wars," is expected to air this fall.
To make the series, Animal Planet worked with the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, activists who are considered heroic defenders of wildlife or dangerous meddlers, depending on your politics. On this trip, the group tossed rancid butter on Japanese ships to make the decks slippery and spoil whale meat, and diplomatic intervention was needed after two society members climbed aboard a Japanese ship.

In saner times, these vandals would be harpooned; slippery decks could get innocent sailors killed. Sea Shepherd moonbats sail under the Jolly Roger like the sociopathic outlaws they are, and have been accused of trying to sink ships.

Any notions that Animal Planet would take a neutral point of view have been dispelled:

Rivr Media and independent producer Dan Stone developed the idea for the series, said Rob Lundgren, the company's president. He described Stone as an "avid supporter" of the Sea Shepherd Society who has contributed money to the group.
"We're all really intrigued by people who want to … make a difference on the planet," Lundgren said.
Producers doubted they would be given access to Japanese whaling boats, so they didn't try. Makers of "Whale Wars" made no attempt to get the Japanese side of the story at all, Lundgren said.

Apparently there's only one side to environmental stories: the antihuman side. But hey, whatever helps the ratings and allows the network to tout its social consciousness.

Klaatu Arrives Too Late to Save Planet from Imaginary Crisis

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:31 PM

In the Cold War classic The Day the Earth Stood Still, an alien named Klaatu threatens to destroy the world if we won't stop squabbling. Though the Earth may stand still, Tinseltown has moved on to new causes for which to propagandize in the remake:

Fifty years later and Klaatu has a new message for humanity, but one with equally dire consequences should we choose to ignore it, Keanu Reeves, who is playing the alien in Scott Derrickson's upcoming remake, told MTV News.
"The first one was borne out of the cold war and nuclear détente. Klaatu came and was saying cease and desist with your violence. If you can't do it yourselves we're going to do it. That was the film of that day," Reeves explained. "The version I was just working on, instead of being man against man, it's more about man against nature. My Klaatu says that if the Earth dies, you die. If you die, the earth survives. I'm a friend to the earth."

If it's global warming Klaatu insists on saving us from, he got here a little late. Even the U.N. admits the warming trend has ended.

Confirmed: Global Warming Is Over

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:12 PM

Well, global warming was nice while it lasted.

Michael Duffy of Australia's ABC Radio National conducted an interesting interview with Jennifer Marohasy, biologist and senior fellow at the Institute of Public Affairs.

Duffy: Is the Earth still warming?
Marohasy: No, actually, there has been cooling, if you take 1998 as your point of reference. If you take 2002 as your point of reference, then temperatures have plateaued. This is certainly not what you'd expect if carbon dioxide is driving temperature because carbon dioxide levels have been increasing but temperatures have actually been coming down over the last 10 years.
Duffy: Is this a matter of any controversy?
Marohasy: Actually, no. The head of the [U.N.'s] IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) has actually acknowledged it. He talks about the apparent plateau in temperatures so far this century. So he recognises that in this century, over the past eight years, temperatures have plateaued … This is not what you'd expect, as I said, because if carbon dioxide is driving temperature then you'd expect that, given carbon dioxide levels have been continuing to increase, temperatures should be going up … So (it's) very unexpected, not something that's being discussed. It should be being discussed, though, because it's very significant.
Duffy: It's not only that it's not discussed. We never hear it, do we? Whenever there's any sort of weather event that can be linked into the global warming orthodoxy, it's put on the front page. But a fact like that, which is that global warming stopped a decade ago, is virtually never reported, which is extraordinary.

Still more extraordinary is people's continued willingness to take the moonbat establishment's word for anything whatsoever, after it has proven it will lie to us even about the weather.

According to Inside Bay Area, it is a newsworthy event when a moonbat claims to have gone a whole day without eating, so I didn't want to leave Moonbattery readers uninformed:

Jason Wong at times felt his body weakening. It took great effort just to stay awake in class. But in the end, he said it was all worth it. Wong, a senior, was one of 27 San Leandro High School students who took turns fasting for one day to honor the 40th anniversary of Cesar Chavez's 24-day fast for nonviolence. "It was an eye-opening experience," Wong said. "I learned that positive change can be made through nonviolent actions." […] In addition to honoring Chavez's efforts, students wanted to raise campus awareness about issues of violence, including child and domestic abuse, and violence toward the lesbian, bisexual, gay and transgender community.

The "positive change" brought about by Wrong's 1-day diet are left for the reader to imagine. Possibly he will be emitting less flatulence, thus alleviating global warming — proven by computer models to be a potential threat to the transgender community.

Perspective on Casualties in Iraq

Posted by Dave Blount at 1:07 PM

Screeches AP:

A roadside bomb killed three American soldiers north of Baghdad on Saturday, pushing the U.S. death toll in the five-year conflict to nearly 4,000. […] The latest deaths brought to 3,996 the number of U.S. service members and Pentagon civilians who have died since the war began on March 20, 2003, according to an Associated Press count. […] Sen. Robert Menendez [D] of New Jersey called on Bush to "face the reality" in Iraq and "tell us the truth" about the cost of the conflict as America is struggling with a faltering economy and mounting casualty tolls.

Menendez hopes to secure defeat by blowing the casualty figures out of proportion, failing to mention that well over 10 times that many Americans die in traffic accidents every year. Casualties in the Iraqi theater of our war with Islamic terrorists have been extremely low by historical standards. But as Senator Mendacious reaffirms, the first casualty in war is truth.

Senator Mendacious spins defeat out of victory.

Bottom Falling Out of California Public Schools

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:33 AM

In light of California's recent attempts to follow Nazi Germany's lead and ban homeschooling, it's particularly alarming to see the bottom falling out of the bloated monstrosity that is the state's public school system:

California, home to 1 in 9 American schoolchildren, is on the brink of what may be the biggest public education crisis in state history. Facing a $16 billion state budget shortfall, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has proposed $4.8 billion in school-funding cuts, or 10 percent of education spending.

The cuts may be a bluff, to frighten legislators into backing still higher taxes. But there are limits to how high taxes can be raised before the flow of productive Californians out of the state becomes a torrent, reducing the tax base to penniless Mexicans.

At least when California schools go completely bankrupt, children will no longer be force-fed homosexual propaganda, communism, or the global warming hoax.

Once again we see that something as important as education cannot be left in the hands of bureaucrats.

Westchester County Jail Succumbs to Dhimmitude

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:04 AM

We may not agree on whether the Constitution guarantees the right of political speech unfettered by government restrictions (i.e., McCain-Feingold) or the right to bear arms, but one thing has been settled in Westchester County, New York: Muslim criminals have a right to meals prepared in accordance with the dictates of their barbarous cult.

Westchester taxpayers will be disgusted to learn they have presumably been paying the salary of the county jail's official imam John Nashid, who of course supported this latest Muslim demand.

The special meals will add about 15¢ per dish to the cost of feeding these enemies of society. Good thing Christians don't make expensive demands. But then, the separation of church and state forbids us from listening to any demands Christians might make. Besides, Christians who follow their religion shouldn't be in jail. Muslims who follow theirs shouldn't be anywhere else.

New York City, site of one of the most horrific Muslim atrocities in all history, already serves halal meals in its jails.

Democrat Chickens May Roost in Denver

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:32 AM

Stock up on popcorn before the Democrat convention; it might turn out to be highly entertaining. Re-create 68, a moonbat cult devoted like many liberals to forcibly returning America to the hippie era, wants Denver to match the Chicago of 1968 for anarchy and mayhem.

Even the liberal Denver Post is getting sick of these punks:

People affiliated with Re-create 68 packed a city-sponsored lottery for park space with entries under various names, hoping to guarantee that they'd be the only ones to use Civic Center on the Sunday before the convention.
The permit instead went to the convention host committee in a blind drawing. The committee had submitted only one application for that date. It was a karmic kick in the pants, and Re-create 68 organizers didn't handle it like grownups.
Glenn Spagnuolo, a lead organizer for the group, said protesters, which he predicts will number 50,000, will gather at the central Denver park anyway.
He said there would have to be massive security at the park and the Pepsi Center, where the convention is taking place. That sounds like a threat.

Typically of moonbats, Re-create 68 uses the system to the extent it gets what it wants, then quickly resorts to threats and tantrums. Like all revolutionary wannabes, they vastly inflate their own numbers. But if the Shrillary vs. Osama Obama matchup doesn't get resolved to certain people's satisfaction, Re-create 68 rioters could have a lot of company.

As Jeremiah Wright or Ward Churchill might say, the Democrat Party's chickens are coming home to roost.

The idea is to make Denver 2008 into Chicago 1968.

Daily Kos Tearjerker

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:11 AM

In turns out the clownish Obama groupie Chris Matthews wasn't the only one moved to tears by BHO's lame "My White Grandma Was a Racist" speech. If your breakfast has settled, get a load of this post on Daily Kos:

My Mom has been a diehard HRC supporter from the start. She has a Hillary sign on her bedroom mirror. She has steadfastly resisted the rest of the family's onslaught in favor of Obama. And we have really worked hard. My Mom grew up white and poor in Detroit. And scared of black people. […] My Mom, the white grandmother of my black daughter, watched the speech. And she cried. She sat quietly for a few minutes without saying a single word…
Then she got up, walked into her bedroom and took down her HRC sign. My Mom has said some of the same things as Barack's grandmother I'm sure. But yesterday, a page was turned. An Eighty-two year old woman changed. I am ready to believe our nation can too.

Sample comments:

Just wow is all I can write through the tears.
I wept while reading Obama's speech. Then I wept again while watching it. I have teared up again and again reading the many personal accounts of how Obama's words have caused change and healing. Your story just got those tears going again.
weeping here

Et cetera ad nauseam. You don't know whether to laugh or throw up. These idiots are actually moved to tears by the righteousness of feeling guilty about being afraid of black on white violence.

Not even moonbats are crazy enough to believe that 82-year-old white ladies in Detroit run no risk of being physically attacked by blacks, just as no one sane enough to feed themselves could blame Obama's grandma for not liking it when an aggressive bum menaced her at a bus stop. The implication is that white people deserve to be assaulted, and are racists for not accepting the just punishment for having the wrong skin color.

Moonbattery is so depraved, it twists the mind even to examine it.

Obama's Church Supports Hamas Terrorists

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:52 AM

The latest from Barack Obama's church for the last 20 years, which even now he continues to support:

Sen. Barack Obama's Chicago church reprinted a manifesto by Hamas that defended terrorism as legitimate resistance, refused to recognize the right of Israel to exist and compared the terror group's official charter — which calls for the murder of Jews — to America's Declaration of Independence.

This is quite a surprise: I had no idea Obama et al. had such a high opinion of the Declaration of Independence.

Less surprising is that the Obama camp has advocated negotiating with and giving taxpayer money to this blood-drenched terror cult. Numerous Americans have been killed in Hamas terror attacks. Hamas spokesman Sheik Ahmad Bahr has called for the death of all Jews and Americans, "to the very last one." But I think Obama will be able to wrangle an exception.

The reprinted article, which appeared last July 22 on the page of the church's newsletter reserved for Obama's close friend and advisor for two decades, Jeremiah Wright, was written by Mousa Abu Marzook. BizzyBlog has a graphic.

Marzook is considered the brains behind Hamas, just as Rev. Wright is the soul behind Obama. He is a terrorist murderer who has planned dozens of attacks on innocent civilians, including suicide bombings, and is said to have been involved in setting up a Hamas terror network in the USA.

Mousa Abu Marzook may soon have a friend in the White House.

The Return of Jesse MacBeth

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:29 AM

Phony soldier Jesse MacBeth is back, still wallowing in theatrical self-pity as he employs his vivid imagination to explain why he couldn't even get through basic training, despite earlier claims that he had served in Iraq, witnessing all manner of macabre American atrocities.

Lowlights from an illiterate gush of lurid absurdity from someone claiming to be MacBeth:

well, iam fresh out of prison, and i see the world is still discussion me mostly bashing me, for the things that i have said i deserve it. but i know alot of you have been wanting to know the truth have been wanting to know why i did and said the things i did. first off let me say i had no ideah it would get this big i had no ideah it would become internation and that was not my intention. i simply wanted to get back at the army for the way they treated me in basic training. […] iam muslim and have been most of my life. […] during the secound one of my drill dgt (ds martin) appraoched me in the training bay in front of all the other iet soldiers in my platoon took the quran off my bunk spit in it and threw it across the room yelling "muslims dont belong in my army" and madde me crawl in his words" like the muslim dog i was" to get my holy book. […] he a and a couple of other iet soldiers beat me badly strip my cloths from me and tied me to the poll naked in the training bay. for the next 2 days i was tied there naked. pages of my quran were ripped out and shoved down my throat. bacon was shoved down my thrat. cold water was dumped on me. i was called hajji, sand 'n-word', and several other slurs. i was repeatedly punched kicked and spit on while i was tied i did not sleep for the days i was tied to the poll and i had to urniated on myself. i had open wounds and cuts on my face and all over mybody the only nourishment i got were the words of allah. that was enough to get me through it.

The lies he fed his eagerly believing fellow peace activists regarding American misdeeds in Iraq were supposedly his revenge for this ill treatment.

According to newly released records, it appears Hillary Clinton was in the White House as her husband stained Monica Lewinsky's infamous blue dress with his carbon emissions while he was supposed to be running the country. Imagine how the furniture would have flown had she happened to walk into the Oval Office as Bill emerged from the adjoining bathroom, escorting an intern half his age with telltale goop on her dress.

The records also show that Shrillary had 25 "private meetings" of her own right before Slick Willie's pardon spree, including two with Denise Rich, wife of fugitive criminal Marc Rich, whom her better half pardoned for tax evasion.

Moonbats Honor Their Protectors

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:45 AM

From yesterday's Anchorage Daily News:

Vandals dumped a bucket of red paint on a downtown veterans memorial this morning, the fifth anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, in what police suspect was a symbolic act of protest. Passers-by spotted the blood-toned paint on the Anchorage Veterans Memorial, in the Delaney Park Strip off I Street, during the morning commute and reported it to police. The soldier's helmet was blood red, with the paint dripping down to the ground below. […]
The statue was cleaned off by early afternoon, with only a hint of a reddish hue staining the greening copper shaped into a soldier holding a carbine. The blood-colored paint stained the snow beneath a placard that is part of the monument: "To those Alaska veterans whose eyes have seen what the protected will never know."

Britain Opens Door to Criminals, Slams It on Gurkha Heroes

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:24 AM

The way the U.K. lets Muslim colonizers overrun the country, you would think national sovereignty is taken no more seriously than at the Mexican border in the USA. However, there are foreigners British bureauweenies won't allow to stay: Gurkhas, the special Nepalese troops who have served the Crown with distinction for nearly 200 years, earning 26 Victoria Crosses.

While Britain slams the door in the Gurkhas' crestfallen faces, these folks are allowed to stay (via Daily Mail):

Learco Chindamo: Italian-born Chindamo will be allowed to stay in Britain despite his 12-year sentence for killing headmaster Philip Lawrence at his school in 1995. An immigration tribunal last year ruled that Chindamo, 27, could not be deported when he is freed because it would breach his right to a "family life". Chindamo, who moved to Britain when he was six, is eligible for parole this year.
Yonis Dirie: In 2006, a judge was told he could not deport the rapist because Dirie had been granted sanctuary in Britain. The drug addict and career criminal, a Somali, was given a ten-year sentence at the Old Bailey for the rape in 1990. Judge Gerald Gordon, QC, had asked if he could recommend the 40-year-old be deported for what he described as "a truly horrendous crime". But he was told that because Dirie had been given indefinite leave to remain in the UK, he could not be sent back to his war-torn home country unless the Home Secretary intervenes.
Carol Ajoh: The asylum seeker, who falsely claimed she was a lesbian, was allowed to stay in Britain in 2006 — despite being a married mother of six. Ajoh was not sent home to the Caribbean after a judge ruled it would violate her human rights. In the High Court, Mr Justice Collins said her 2002 claim that she would be persecuted in Jamaica over her sexuality was "totally bogus". But because she remarried and gave birth to three children while her case was being decided, he said it "lacked humanity" to remove her.
Afghan hijackers: In February 2000, nine Afghans hijacked a Boeing 727 and forced the crew to fly to Stansted so they could claim asylum. After a series of legal battles costing taxpayers up to £15million, they were denied refugee status but told they could stay here on "discretionary leave" for human rights reasons. It gave the men the right to work, housing and a full range of benefits worth tens of thousands of pounds.

A single word suffices to explain this bizarre state of affairs: moonbattery.

Global Warming Blamed for Flowers and Butterflies

Despite even the NOAA admitting that we just endured the coldest winter in 7 years, AP continues to report on the imaginary global warming crisis as though it were actually occurring, even insulting butterflies in the process:

WASHINGTON — The capital's famous cherry trees are primed to burst out in a perfect pink peak about the end of this month. Thirty years ago, the trees usually waited to bloom till around April 5.
In central California, the first of the field skipper sachem, a drab little butterfly, was fluttering about on March 12. Just 25 years ago, that creature predictably emerged there anywhere from mid-April to mid-May.

More Nickelodiousness from Linda Ellerbee

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:20 AM

Linda Ellerbee, a hard-left propagandist who specializes in brainwashing impressionable rug rats via Nickelodeon, has turned her attention to Mexico's illegal colonization of the Southwest, as reported by a sympathetic NY Daily News:

Paola is 13. Her sister, Vanessa, is 14. Their brother, Nahum, is 17. They live in a comfortable house in Roswell, N.M.
One morning, they heard a commotion downstairs and found agents from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) putting their father in handcuffs — the first step toward deporting both parents to their native Mexico.
This story is one of several Linda Ellerbee uses Sunday night in a "Nick News" special to illuminate a troubling consequence of our ongoing response to the complex issue of immigration.

Since the stormtroopers came for their parents, the poor teens have had to live alone, because Mom and Dad were sent packing back to their own country, and apparently didn't care to bring their children along. Quite the sob story! But…

Ellerbee starts the show by stressing that she's not taking sides in the larger immigration debate, just reminding us of its impact on children.

Nickelodious has touched on Southwestern issues before by denouncing the heroes who defended the Alamo. A teenage Hispanic girl was used as a mouthpiece to tell the kids:

The battle for the Alamo is often remembered as a rebellion of a small group of brave Texas farmers fighting against the Mexican army. What you may not know is that at the time, Texas was part of Mexico.
By the early 1800s, a lot of people living in San Antonio were farmers who brought their slaves with them. In 1829, Mexico abolished slavery and what followed was years of conflict between farmers who wanted to keep their slaves and Mexican authorities. This conflict led up to the battle for the Alamo.

If the next generation remembers the Alamo at all, it will be with shame instead of pride — if Linda Ellerbee and the rest of the leftist kooks running this execrable network have their way.

The shoes, Linda. You're 64 years old!

Obama: Oatmeal-Flavored Reverend Wrong

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:37 AM

Black pastors have been coming out of the woodwork to defend their race-baiting colleague Jeremiah Wright. Predictably, some of their commentary has been of the "Jeremiah's not a racist, you the racist, you cracker m*****f*****er!" variety. However, Reverend Jason A. Barr Jr. of the Macedonia Church of Pittsburgh offers a valuable insight:

The people who are having the most problems with Jeremiah Wright are white people. Barack can say the same kind of things, but he's going to dress it up in different language and in a way that doesn't appear to be offensive. In a real sense, Obama's speech was just as indicting of white America as Jeremiah's speech. It just wasn't delivered with the same passion or stridency.

Amen, Reverend Barr. Barack Obama is oatmeal-flavored Jeremiah Wright. Let's hope BHO's latte liberal supporters wake up to this fact before election day.

Reverend Frederick Haynes: Revealing Jeremiah Wright's Racism and Anti-Americanism Constitutes Lynching

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:17 AM

Exposed phony Barack Obama isn't the only one who regards the divisive demagogue Jeremiah Wright as a mentor. From a cached CNN article:

More than 50 black ministers from around the country participated in a 90-minute conference call Sunday with representatives of the Obama campaign, according to Dr. Frederick Haynes, one of the participants. […] Haynes, pastor of the 10,000-member Friendship-West Baptist Church of Dallas, Texas — who considers Wright a "mentor" — said there was a sense of "outrage," a feeling that Wright was "being lynched in the media" and reduced to sound bites by those "ignorant of black culture, black expression and the black church."

There you have it: objecting to or even failing to ignore Reverend Wrong's racist anti-American diatribes constitutes lynching — i.e., anti-black racism. Put Obama in the White House and we may soon see this principle established in the law.

In exchange for higher taxes, you'll be issued one of these.

Daily Kos Calls for Invasion of USA

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:10 AM

The Daily Kos — official voice of the Nutroots establishment, obsequiously courted by Democrat candidates — has called for the USA to be invaded and occupied by a foreign army, so as to help us "regain our compassion":

As a nation the United States no longer has the remotest idea about what it really feels like to be part of a war zone. […] We have allowed a Congress and an administration to encourage hate and to hi-jack our compassion. In fact, as a nation we have lost our compassion.
Is America at a point that to be able to really feel again, to regain that compassion, that it needs to be invaded and occupied in the same way that we have invaded and occupied Iraq? Would there be a greater chance that Americans will be more reluctant to accept the invasion of another country? Maybe seeing and feeling the same level of destruction that we have inflicted on Iraq, at least the American public will understand why invading another country is unconscionable except in the most dire circumstances — which means after that country has directly attacked the United States.

Apparently violating a ceasefire agreement, shooting at our planes, and trying to assassinate a former president don't count as directly attacking the United States.

Don't forget not to question their patriotism.

Obama Wanted Imus Fired

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:29 AM

By now most everyone has heard at least a little of the wildly over-the-top Caucasian-bashing from Barack Obama's mentor Jeremiah Wright. But have you heard that less than a year ago, Obama was demanding the cringingly apologetic Don Imus' head on a platter for saying "nappy-headed hos"?

No one accuses Imus of having any actual animus toward blacks, whereas Reverend Wright's hatred of Caucasians is the cornerstone of the warped theology he preaches to America-loathing, racist bobbleheads like Barack Obama. And yet, from last April 11:

In an interview with ABC News Wednesday afternoon, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., called for the firing of talk radio host Don Imus. Obama said he would never again appear on Imus' show, which is broadcast on CBS Radio and MSNBC television.
"I understand MSNBC has suspended Mr. Imus," Obama told ABC News, "but I would also say that there's nobody on my staff who would still be working for me if they made a comment like that about anybody of any ethnic group. And I would hope that NBC ends up having that same attitude."
Obama said he appeared once on Imus' show two years ago, and "I have no intention of returning."

Nonetheless he had no problem returning to Reverend Wrong's church of racist rants — for 20 years.

As you may have noticed, tolerance is a one-way street.

Obama Denounces His White Grandmother as a Racist

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:15 PM

By now you've been exposed to Barack Obama's lame attempt to justify his close 20-year association with the raving maniac Jeremiah Wright, a proponent of the depraved doctrine of black liberation theology, who uses his pulpit to whip up racial hatred and denounce America in some of the most extreme language imaginable.

Unsurprisingly, BHO read from his TelePrompTer a carefully crafted collection of cotton candy platitudes, race card guilt-tripping, and moral equivalency. Here's the part I found most noteworthy:

I can no more disown him [Reverend Wright] than I can my white grandmother — a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world, but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe.

Any white lady who doesn't fear black men on the street must go heavily armed. Even professional race-baiter Jesse Jackson is said to have admitted he felt relieved that people walking behind him on a dark street were white. If we could set aside the politically correct BS for a moment, blacks are much more likely to be violent criminals — in part a consequence of pernicious demagogues like Jeremiah Wright justifying their sociopathic behavior.

Basically BHO is saying: So maybe my mentor very publicly hates this country for being full of white people. But my white grandma's a racist too; she doesn't want to be mugged, and I even heard her utter ethnic stereotypes.

His grandmother — who raised him from age 10 — is still alive. I hope she doesn't mind being sacrificed to Obama's political ambitions.

Anyone still supporting Obama at this point will vote for him no matter what he does, so he may as well stop squirming around and put Reverend Wrong on his ticket as VP.

Posted by Dave Blount at 3:45 PM

It's amazing what you can learn in college, thanks in part to taxpayer funds. At University of Nevada-Las Vegas, you can learn in the student newspaper why Palestinians devote themselves to killing innocent civilians in their terror campaign to obliterate Israel. Writes Opinion Editor Sharief Ali:

Most may not like the answer, but it doesn't have to be liked because it is the truth — Palestinian militants target civilians because Israelis indiscriminately kill civilians when they are trying to kill "terrorists."

This absurd statement is all it took for Ali to excuse the horrific massacre inflicted by Jabel Mukaber at the Mercaz Harav yeshiva.

Of course, presumably Muslim college students aren't the only ones to equate terrorists with their victims. According to Barack Obama's close friend and 20-year advisor Jeremiah Wright, the atrocities of 9/11 were the equivalent of American behavior:

We bombed Hiroshima. We bombed Nagasaki. And we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon. And we never batted an eye. We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans. And now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back into our own front yards.

From the point of view of our potential next president's "sounding board," there is no moral difference between al Qaeda and the USA:

We cannot see how what we are doing is the same thing Al Qaeda is doing under a different color flag. Calling on the name of a different God to sanction and approve our murder and our mayhem.

Now that Reverend Wrong has turned over the job of Head Bigot at Obama's Trinity United Church of Christ to another inflammatory demagogue, maybe he'll take up writing newspaper editorials.

The line between moral relativism and pure evil has been crossed so many times, it's worn away to nothing.

As His Extremism Becomes More Evident, Obama's Support Rises Among Blacks

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:04 AM

How's this for horrifying:

Since it became public knowledge that Obama's close advisor Jeremiah Wright is a race-baiting maniac who noisily denounces America in the most inflammatory terms conceivable, black support for Obama has actually risen in the key Keystone State:

Black voters back Sen. Obama 76 - 18 percent, compared to 69 - 23 percent Feb. 27.

By encouraging blacks to foster largely bogus grievances, liberals have created a Frankenstein monster. The O.J. verdict was only a vague hint of things to come. If Robert Mugabe came to America and ran on a platform of confiscating white people's property as he's done to such disastrous effect in Zimbabwe, he would get the votes of Obama's base.

Maybe Obama should pose with O.J.

United Nations Stifles Free Speech

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:36 AM

Hypocritical, but hardly surprising:

Reporters covering the United Nations complain that the organization, whose Universal Declaration of Human Rights calls for freedom of the press, has been trying to stifle reporters covering the U.N. itself.

The U.N. does have a lot to hide:

In recent years, the United Nations has come under fire for corruption scandals, including allegations of bribery in the oil-for-food program, sexual abuse by U.N. relief workers, and, more recently, U.N. money allegedly ending up in North Korea's missile development program.

A favorite tactic for staving off reporters digging into its many scandals is for the U.N. to declare that there's an ongoing investigation, using this as an excuse not to answer questions. Since the investigations entail corrupt U.N. bureauweenies investigating themselves, they go around in circles until the coast is clear, then quietly die.

It's not as if reporters can utilize the Freedom of Information Act; the U.N. is above the laws of the mere nations it aspires to supplant.

Beatrice Edwards of the Government Accountability Project remarks on the U.N. and other international bodies:

If they are able to shut down free press or free speech inside, to the extent that they often try to, then we are really talking about very powerful, very wealthy, lawless organizations.

In a world controlled by the U.N., freedom of speech would disappear even faster than private property. Yet American taxpayers keep feeding it, like a pet baby crocodile that will grow and grow until it isn't a baby or a pet anymore.

The more we feed it, the bigger it will grow.

Black Liberation Theology, the Doctrine of Barack Obama's Church

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:44 AM

Barack Obama's stepfather may have tried bringing him up as a Muslim, but Obama is no Muslim now. His actual religion, to which he acknowledges being converted by the maniacal Jeremiah Wright some 20 years ago, is even more fundamentally hostile to American civilization. His Trinity United Church of Christ follows the bizarre doctrine of "black liberation theology," according to which Jesus Christ is black. More bizarre still, Jesus Christ is a black supremacist, who wants to stick it to Whitey.

Here's video of Obama's spiritual advisor assuring the mob of racist kooks that serves BHO as a church that Jesus is black:

Here he is telling Sean Hannity that he won't understand the church until he reads the works of "theologian" James Cone:

Cone is the most prominent proponent of black liberation theology. In his own words, here's what he believes:

Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him. The task of black theology is to kill Gods who do not belong to the black community … Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal. Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject his love.

A year from now, this country could be run by someone who has spent the last 20 years worshiping a god committed to "the destruction of the white enemy."

We would be better off making Charles Manson our next President.

Black Jesus doesn't like white folks.

Jeremiah Wright: Obama's Idea of a Great Leader

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:03 AM

Via Riehl World View, here's another video that had better become scarce if BHO is to be our first black supremacist president:

"A friend and a great leader, not just in Chicago but across the country." No wonder the viciously racist and anti-American Jeremiah Wright, who regards 9/11 as just comeuppance for "white America, the U.S. of KKK A.," ceased being an official advisor on Obama's campaign staff only last Friday.

But if people will buy the global warming hoax, maybe they'll buy the notion that Obama doesn't share the ideology of his close spiritual advisor of the last 20 years.

Global Warming Hoax Is a Stale Old Scare Warmed Over

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:00 AM

Other than having the militant backing of the world governmedia, the global warming hoax doesn't have a whole lot going for it — not even originality. An AP article in the Washington Post tried to scare readers into buying some more papers by gasping:

The Arctic ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot, according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consul Ifft, at Bergen, Norway.
Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers, he declared, all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone. Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met with as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes. Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm.
Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared. Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts, which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds.

This was back in 1922. If moonbats' precious ice was already melting away 86 years ago, you'd think it would all be gone by now, wouldn't you?

You could almost start to believe that the climate naturally fluctuates, regardless of what kind of light bulbs we use.

Liberalism Is Dead — Or at Least, It Smells Dead

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:30 PM

Former CNN correspondent Walter Rodgers has good news and bad news.

First the good — and it's great:

Few dare to say it, but it's time we acknowledged a sad truth about American politics: liberalism is dead — and it has been for 40 years.

Now the bad: Rodgers is a moonbat, and consequently the statement above has no validity whatsoever.

According to Rodgers' remarkable interpretation of American history, liberalism ceased to be a threat once we got rid of LBJ. Even Jimmy Carter — who threw away the Panama Canal and pretty much invented groveling dhimmitude in the face of Islamic terror — was "no liberal," Rodgers reveals. There's more you probably didn't know:

In 2000, the Supreme Court anointed right-wing Republican George W. Bush as president. His two terms have driven a stake through liberalism's heart.

Way to go, W! If only it were true. In reality, Bush 43 has let the size of government spiral out of control more irresponsibly than anyone since Johnson.

At least Rodgers can take solace in our surfeit of government programs, even if there could never be enough to suit him:

Liberalism may indeed be a political spent force, but we should fervently hope that the human decency and concern for our fellow man that spawned programs such as food stamps, Head Start, Aid for Dependent Children, and the Peace Corps, still speaks to the inherent and unselfish goodness that used to be America.

After denouncing his own country as selfish and no longer good for failing to conform to his extreme liberal ideology, Rodgers solemnly intones that the essence of liberalism is tolerance. That we indulge condescending moonbats as they spew insulting rubbish all over our newspapers proves we're all too tolerant.

Walter Rodgers, intolerant moonbat.

Clintonistas Boycott Kos

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:49 AM

A Clintonista going by the name Alegre has gone on strike — by which she means she will not post any more idiocy on the far-left Daily Kos until the other moonbats stop being mean to Shrillary on behalf of the Obamination:

I will not help drive up traffic or page-hits as long as my candidate — a good and fine DEMOCRAT — is attacked in such a horrid and sexist manner not only by other diarists, but by several of those posting to the front page. […] Instead, I will put my energy into posting at sites where my efforts aren't routinely trashed, spammed and ridiculed by a handful of angry, petty and spiteful folks who clearly have too much time on their hands.

Alegre observes that the Daily Kos's "tone, its essence has evolved into something ugly and destructive."

I reached a similar conclusion some time ago — when the site's founder Markos Moulitsas had this to say about American contractors murdered by terrorists while delivering food in Iraq:

Kos on contractors

No doubt fantasizing a breathless climb to the top of the barricades, Alegre calls upon her comrades to join her counter-Kos boycott — and dozens have.

As Sun Tzu probably said, Never interfere with an enemy that is fighting itself; just make some popcorn and sit back to watch.

DOT Makes Mockery of English Requirement for Mexican Truck Drivers

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:44 AM

So much for government guarantees that Mexican truck drivers hauling freight into the USA be proficient in English:

Mexican truck drivers allowed to travel throughout the U.S. under a Bush administration demonstration project may not be proficient in English, despite Department of Transportation assurances to the contrary.
A brochure on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's website instructs Mexican truck drivers, "Did you know … You MUST be able to read and speak English to drive trucks in the United States."
Still, at the Senate Commerce Committee oversight hearing Tuesday, Secretary of Transportation Mary Peters and DOT Inspector General Calvin L. Scovel III reluctantly admitted under intense questioning from Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., that Mexican drivers were being designated at the border as "proficient in English" even though they could explain U.S. traffic signs only in Spanish.

To get an idea of why the Mexican truck drivers are supposed to know English, check out this report on foreign bus drivers in Australia:

Non-English speaking drivers dominate the multi-million dollar inbound tourist market, which is increasingly being controlled by Chinese and Korean companies.
The situation has led the Office of Transport Safety Investigations (OTSI) demanding that all bus drivers take road knowledge tests in English. Foreign drivers currently can sit RTA tests in whatever language they chose.
The absurdity of the system was highlighted by the death of three Taiwanese tourists in 2005 when their driver, Hua Chen, lost control on a steep hill at Jamberoo, south of Wollongong.
Chen, a Chinese national who had been in Australia less than two months, could not read a sign warning the road was too steep for buses.

Though probably for the wrong reason (i.e., protectionism), Congress has been trying to put a stop to the Mexican trucker invasion. But for the Bush Administration, public safety comes far down the list below obliterating the border with Mexico.

Lo siento, Señor!

Forced Marriage Deemed Preferable to Offending Muslims

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:06 AM

Slavery, rape, and forced prostitution may be bad, but according to British educrats, there's something worse still: the risk of offending Muslims.

Schools in areas feared to have high rates of forced marriage are refusing to display posters on the issue because they are too hard-hitting, according to a government report.
Headteachers are unwilling to put up the posters for fear that they might offend some parents. The disclosure came in findings from the Department for Children, Schools and Families showing that 2,089 pupils were absent from school without explanation in 14 areas of England believed to have a high incidence of forced marriage.

Once again we see moonbats eager to sacrifice even the most fundamental of Western values in their eagerness to submit to Islam.

BBC Goes After the Crucifix

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:49 AM

There is no image too sacred for the BBC to attack, including even Christ on the cross. The historical revisionism so beloved by liberals gets heavy use in the Beeb's new taxpayer-financed drama "The Passion," which features Christ crucified in a fetal position.

The same program is said to cast the villains Judas, Pontius Pilate, and High Priest Caiaphas in a positive light, and to portray Mary as angry and unaware of what was happening. The series will climax on Easter Sunday.

To quote George Orwell:

He who controls the present, controls the past. He who controls the past, controls the future.

I wonder if Orwell would have written 1984, had he known moonbats would use it as an instruction manual.

An image the BBC wants to undermine.

Cindy Sheehan Backs Obama's America-Hating Pastor

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:02 AM

No wonder Barack Obama has made only perfunctory attempts to distance himself from his rabidly racist and anti-American "sounding board," Jeremiah Wright. Moderates will forget all about Reverend Wrong, as the Obamination's mainstream enablers can be counted on to let the story die. As for Obama's radical Left base — they have all the more reason to vote for him.

For example, Cindy Sheehan, whom the mainstream media anointed with absolute moral authority, backs Wrong to the hilt:

I sit here behind my computer screen in solidarity with Rev. Wright. Not only do I not denounce him, but I support him in telling the truth.

Mother Moonbat enthusiastically embraces the appalling claim by Obama's spiritual mentor that 9/11 was America's just punishment for being so awful:

Yes, with arrogant American exceptionalism, we were indignant when almost 3000 of our brothers and sisters were killed on 9-11.

If we weren't so arrogant, we would have realized that we had it coming. Sheehan notes that we dealt too roughly with Japan during WWII, since the Pearl Harbor attack didn't kill many civilians. We supported state terrorism by helping Israel defend itself from Palestinians who ask only for free money and to be left alone to kill Jews in peace. Even now America commits unspecified terrorist acts in Afghanistan and Iraq by oppressing gentle Taliban and al Qaeda freedom fighters — forcing them to travel backwards in time to punish us on 9/11, the day the chickens came home to roost, according to Ward Churchill, Jeremiah Wright, and Cindy Sheehan.

As for Michelle Obama's lack of pride in her country, the She-Hag proudly shares it:

I wish I could be proud of a nation that tortures people and imprisons them without basic legal rights. I wish I could be proud of a nation that has a sitting president that has been responsible for killing almost a million innocent Iraqi people in a misadventure that was based on lies and is for profit. I wish I could be proud of a nation that rapes its poor people to feed the already rich in a demented reverse Robin Hood affect. I wish I could be proud of a country where over a million children are homeless and hungry every night. I wish I could be proud of a nation that left our black brothers and sisters hanging off of their roofs after Katrina.

In short, if you agree that America sucks, vote Obama!

Revealed by Moonbats: Spitzer Framed to Hide Truth About 9/11

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:52 AM

The awful truth about Eliot Spitzer's downfall has been revealed by the probing journalists at

Reports consuming the US propaganda media organs and political elite today are centering upon the charges leveled against the Governor of New York, Eliot Spitzer […] who is said to have paid for the services of a high priced prostitute.
FSB reports circulating in the Kremlin today, however, point to a much more sinister effort behind the toppling of Governor Spitzer as he had just begun a new probe into Larry Silverstein, the owner of the World Trade Center brought down in the September 11, 2001 attacks upon the US, and the Bush Families Carlyle Group.

The rest is hard to follow, but it appears Bush, Wall Street capitalists, and the "media elite" conspired together to destroy Spitzer with phony charges, lest he reveal their insidious schemes, which have something to do with the secret truth behind the atrocities of 9/11. At least there's no mention of satanic cyborgs from Dimension 7.

The first moonbat to comment on this story at Democratic Underground opines:

MIHOP 9-11, and Spitzer was on to them. Believe it.

(MIHOP means "Made It Happen on Purpose"; i.e., President Bush and/or Karl Rove blew up the World Trade Center.)

Another squeaks:

Reralistically, in Bu*hworld, any enemy of the fascist state can be destroyed through devised or altered technology, without possibility of recourse.

Banned in Boston: Trans Fats

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:30 PM

A little more of your freedom to decide for yourself what to eat has been taken away:

Boston has joined others cities in banning artery-clogging trans fats from food served in restaurants and grocery stores. Businesses, as well as schools and hospitals, will have to stop using oils and spreads that contain trans fats. Prepackaged foods such as a bag of chips or cookies won't be included.
The city Public Health Commission approved the ban unanimously Thursday. Fines would be up to $1,000 per violation.

New York and Philadelphia already have trans fat bans. Once a national ban is in place, nanny staters can set to work banning sugar, or caffeine, or red meat, or whatever else strikes their fancy. When they've reduced us to living off plain oatmeal, they'll pass regulations ensuring that we don't eat it too hot and burn our mouths.

Mexican Consul Spokesman Claims American Territory for Mexico

Just as Hitler made the goals of the Nazi movement clear in advance in Mein Kampf, the "Reconquista" movement has been forthright about its objectives. Via Immigration Watchdog, here's Alberto Lozano, spokesman for Mexican Consul General Maria Arnau, taunting Americans in San Diego last Thursday.

They are not just here to commit crimes that Americans won't commit, to take welfare that Americans are too proud to take. They're not just here to fill up subsidized housing that Americans would rather have. They're not just here to loot the social security net. They're not just here to overwhelm the emergency rooms and to cause the schools to enter an academic death spiral. They are here on a Reconquista.

That is, they are here with the encouragement and assistance of the Mexican government, with the purpose of effecting the demographic conquest of the American Southwest. Since our government will barely lift a finger to defend us, it looks like they will succeed.

Obama's Church Bites the Media Hands That Feeds

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:14 PM

Great news: Barack Obama's racist, anti-American church is firing back at the media for grudgingly reporting on its alarming extremism, which with any luck will help keep the story alive.

Otis Moss III, the unhinged successor to Obama's mentor Jeremiah Wright, has been bellowing about how the racist and seditious cult calling itself the Trinity United Church has been "vilified" and subject to a "crucifixion" by those calling attention to Reverend Wrong's obscene ravings. A pious statement has been released, predictably comparing Wright to MLK, although a comparison with his colleague Louis Farrakhan would be far more apt.

Today Odious Dross III gave a sermon entitled "Why the Black Church Won't Shut Up," in the course of which he screamed:

Our very sanity is connected to the church. If it hadn't been for the church we would have lost our minds in the insanity of racism.

Dross is correct that insanity is at issue. That Obama's "church" is insane is beyond debate. The question is, are the liberals running the mainstream media crazy enough to stuff this issue down the memory hole as soon as they can, or will they help Americans understand just who Barack Obama and the fanatics around him really are?

Euroweenies Threaten USA with Trade War in the Name of the Global Warming Hoax

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:36 PM

Belligerent Euroweenies have displayed the unmitigated gall to demand the American economy be run in accordance with their envirosocialist dictates:

A European Union summit promised to push through legislation within 12 months to impose ambitious targets to reduce the 1990 level of carbon emissions by one fifth by 2020. The European leaders also pledged, however, to take action, if necessary, to counter unfair competition from less eco-friendly countries, such as China or the United States.
The French President, Nicolas Sarkozy, suggested that this could mean "carbon" taxes on manufactured goods from nations which refused to take radical action against global warming.

So much for our new ally Sarko, who in addition to threatening America with a trade war, wants to tighten ties with Muslims through a "Union for the Mediterranean."

Not having to shoulder the expensive burden of defending freedom around the world gives largely freeloading Europeans an economic advantage, but this is more than made up for by the inefficiency of their quasi-socialist economies. However, our government has been metastasizing out of control, eroding our position with every bloated budget.

Sanctions won't prevent the terrorist lunatics running Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons, largely because Europeans can't be counted on to go along with them. Yet they will impose sanctions on the USA for not deliberately hobbling our own economy and the world's in the name of a discredited hoax.

It should go with out saying that this is about protectionism, not the environment. Unfortunately, our next president may be enough of a left-wing idiot to fail to understand this and retaliate appropriately. But in the long run, Eurocrats would be wise not to push too hard against China and the USA — lest they push us into each other's arms, at the E.U.'s expense.

Meet Obama's New Preacher, Same as His Old Preacher

In case there is even one person gullible enough to believe Barack Obama's brazen lie that he was unfamiliar with the vociferously anti-American and anti-Caucasian opinions his pastor, spiritual mentor, close advisor, personal friend, and "sounding board" for the last 20 years, Jeremiah Wright, has been spewing from the pulpit, This Goes to 11 offers some information on Wright's replacement, the Reverend Otis Moss III, taken from a video that has unsurprisingly been pulled from YouTube.

Odious Moss has an explanation for the sonic sewage known as gangsta rap, as well as the well-known tendency of inner-city blacks to blow their welfare handouts on cocaine. Surprise: both are the work of the white man, specifically Ronald Reagan and music industry execs.

What did you think, Obama's church was going to bring in a guy who doesn't blame all the world's ills on Whitey? Escapist race hate is the basis of the Afrocentric cult that passes as his "religion."

For an example of what happens when people who think like this are put in positions of authority, refer to Robert Mugabe, who has plunged Zimbabwe into extreme poverty by expropriating farms from Caucasian devils, whom he blames even now for the crisis his moonbat ideology created.

Multiculturalism Blossoms in U.K.

Posted by Dave Blount at 1:44 PM

Here's an example of British multiculturalism that isn't getting much attention from the media:

A vicar was in hospital last night after being attacked in his churchyard by two youths[*] in what is being treated as a 'faith hate' crime.
Canon Michael Ainsworth, 57, was kicked and punched in the head as one of the attackers screamed "f***ing priest".
He was left lying on the ground with deep cuts, bruising and two black eyes.

*"Youths" is politically correct mediaspeak for young Muslim thugs. For confirmation, these youths are described as "Asian," another euphemism, which usually means "Muslim from Pakistan or Bangladesh."

Ainsworth's East London church had been attacked by Muslim colonizers before; the windows are smashed on a regular basis, sometimes during services. The "Asian youths" harass churchgoers, informing them that the building should be not a church but a mosque.

Soon it will be, unless the British rise up against their quisling government and start defending their endangered civilization.

Built in the early 18th century, St George-in-the-East is one of London's most historic churches.

Will Monkeys and White People Be Banned from TV Commercials?

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:35 AM

Chimpanzees have long delighted audiences by appearing in television commercials. The chimps used in PG Tips tea commercials were ranked the favorite ad character of all time in a British poll. Always the killjoy, PETA wants to put a stop to this.

Vague claims that TV star chimps are mistreated likely have no basis whatsoever. PETA's actual reason seems to be that the use of the animals as "frivolous subhumans" makes it harder to convince people that they are endangered. A poll is sited showing that 90% of zoo visitors think gorillas and orangutans are endangered, but only 72% think the same of lovable chimps.

A ban on using "subhumans" in TV ads could have broad implications under an Obama Administration. Obama has been heavily influenced throughout his adult life by a "church" that recently granted a lifetime achievement award to Louis Farrakhan, who holds that Caucasians, the "skunks of the planet," are not quite human:

White people are potential humans … they haven't evolved yet.

If PETA gets its way and endangered subhumans are forbidden from appearing in television ads, white actors would be ill-advised to vote for Obama.

Caucasians and monkeys may have similar status soon.

YouTube Pulls Reverend Wright Video

What a surprise: a YouTube video featuring Jeremiah Wright — close associate, spiritual mentor, and "sounding board" to Barack Obama for the last 20 years — has been pulled "due to terms of use violation."

Look for the mainstream media to follow Google's lead in dropping this down the memory hole as soon as they can get away with it.

It's disturbing enough that Google is using its immense power to censor political information harmful to the radical Left. Even more alarming is that they continue to back Obama, even knowing that behind his cotton candy rhetoric festers an ideology based on a commitment to our country's destruction.

Experts Confirm: Abortion Leads to Psychiatric Problems

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:38 AM

The "termination" of an innocent life isn't the only downside of abortion. There are also psychological consequences for the mothers who have to live with what they've done. Decades of moonbat cultural hegemony have not wiped out the inborn knowledge that killing your children is wrong.

The Sunday Times admits:

Women may be at risk of mental health breakdowns if they have abortions, a medical royal college has warned. The Royal College of Psychiatrists says women should not be allowed to have an abortion until they are counselled on the possible risk to their mental health.
This overturns the consensus that has stood for decades that the risk to mental health of continuing with an unwanted pregnancy outweighs the risks of living with the possible regrets of having an abortion.
MPs will shortly vote on a proposal to reduce the upper time limit for abortions "for social reasons" from 24 weeks to 20 weeks, a move not backed by the government. A Sunday Times poll today shows 59% of women would support such a reduction, with only 28% backing the status quo.

How's this for irony:

More than 90% of the 200,000 terminations in Britain every year are believed to be carried out because doctors believe that continuing with the pregnancy would cause greater mental strain.

How many lives have been lost due to this moonbattery-induced error?

Well, aside from the blindingly obvious reason that I prefer life over death, I didn't realize I was making fun of Christianity this week.

Admitting that they censor themselves out of fear of Islam could be a first step toward cartoonists and journalists gathering the courage to crawl out from under their desks.

Moonbat Fresh Climbs Down from Berkeley Tree

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:01 AM

At last a breath of sanity. Remember "Fresh," the moonbat who climbed into a tree in the middle of the U.C.-Berkeley campus, to protest various ridiculous causes and in hopes of drawing attention to himself? His name is Michael Schuck, and he has been shamed out of the tree not by the quivering and useless authorities but by a group calling itself Students Against Hippies in Trees.

When Schmuck at last climbed down after 17 days, the police finally did something — sort of. He was sited for illegally lodging and trespassing, then released.

Even at Berkeley, students were getting sick of the high expense required to indulge the spoilt hippies who infest the trees. Authorities have erected barricades and provided security, instead of simply dragging the vermin down and throwing them in jail where sociopaths belong.

The group Friends of Fresh also protested, but apparently Students Against Hippies in Trees got the better of them. Hopefully they will turn their attention to liberating the trees near Memorial Stadium from the moonbats that continue to infest them.

If only a movement called Students Against Moonbats in Government would come along to spare us from the national nightmare of an Obamination Administration.

Ted Kennedy Dumps Diesel Fuel into Nantucket Sound

Posted by Dave Blount at 12:17 PM

It isn't just young girls that Ted Kennedy likes to dump in the water. Via Cape Cod Today, here's his yacht Mya creating an oil slick by pumping diesel fuel into Nantucket Sound:


Like his Senate ally Lettuce McAmnesty, Chappaquiddick Ted has repeatedly voted to keep oil prices and our reliance on our enemies for fuel alarmingly high by voting against drilling in the godforsaken ANWR wasteland — presumably because he's such a keen environmentalist. But there's no harm in a little diesel fuel — so long as you just sail on the water and don't swim in it.

Aborted Babies Thrown into Dumpster

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:58 AM

CNS News provides an example of the reverence with which baby-killing moonbats at "family planning" clinics regard human life:

The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality and the Lathrup Village (Mich.) Police Department are investigating the contents of a dumpster behind the WomanCare abortion clinic where body parts of aborted babies, bio-hazardous materials and patients' medical records were found earlier this month.
"I was aware of the reality of abortion, but it was unnerving," Police Sgt. Vincent Lynch said of viewing the evidence, adding that "intact fetuses" were among the debris.

Lynch notes that the abortion mill is next to a residential area, and that animals could easily drag around the horrors they discover. Troy Newman of Operation Rescue comments on the practice of chucking dead babies in the garbage bin:

This outrageous behavior is what we've found is typical of many abortion clinics. Abortion by its very nature draws the lowest of the low to this kind of medicine. The fine doctors have life-saving, not life-ending practices.

If you've got an extremely strong stomach, check out the video of what pro-life activists found in the Dumpster:

At most a fine might be incurred for what was done with the dismembered babies. But improperly disposing of medical records could land someone in jail for 90 days.

Attacks on Recruiting Offices Are Widespread

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:29 AM

The tide of patriotism that unfurled flags across America in the wake of 9/11 has receded, to be replaced by a backlash from the America-hating ultra-Left. One product of this sickening phenomenon has been the success of the Obama candidacy. Another has been a wave of attacks on military recruiting offices.

These go beyond the spectacle in Berkeley and the terrorist attack in Times Square. Melanie Morgan reports:

Eight gunshots were fired at the recruiting office in Denver, Colo. A bomb was planted at the recruiting center in St. Louis. Human blood was splattered across a recruiting office in Ithaca, N.Y. Manure or feces were smeared on the offices of Toledo, Ohio, and Milwaukee, Wis. Recruiters cars have been firebombed in Alabama and Maryland.

A full report is available at Move America Forward, as well as this television ad:

It would be hard to imagine a more openly seditious gesture than attacking a military recruiting office. If Barack Obama is able to ride the rising tide of extremist moonbattery into the White House, the Commander in Chief will be the favored candidate of the animals behind these attacks. Our country will experience its greatest crisis since the Civil War.

WSJ Catches Obama in Lies on White-Hating Pastor

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:41 AM

Given their shared hatred of America, the white man, and Israel, it's hardly surprising that Barack Obama's lifelong spiritual mentor Jeremiah Wright granted a lifetime achievement award to the Nation of Islam's maniacal Louis Farrakhan. What's more surprising is that Obama would be arrogant enough to try playing it off with such easily demonstrable lies. The Wall Street Journal reports:

Mr. Obama went on to explain Mr. Wright's anti-Zionist statements as being rooted in his anger over the Jewish state's support for South Africa under its previous policy of apartheid. As with his previous claim that his church gave the award to Mr. Farrakhan because of his work with ex-offenders, Mr. Obama appears to have made that up.
Neither the presentation of the award nor the Trumpet article about the award mentions ex-offenders, and Mr. Wright's statements denouncing Israel have not been qualified in any way.

Obama does admit that it's "provocative" of his "sounding board" Wright to blame America for the Muslim atrocities of 9/11.

The WSJ also provides a few excerpts of the sermon Wright gave at Howard University in 2006, giving us a taste of the mentality Obama has been soaking up for the last 20 years — and that may soon prevail in the White House:

"We've got more black men in prison than there are in college," he began. "Racism is alive and well. Racism is how this country was founded and how this country is still run. No black man will ever be considered for president, no matter how hard you run Jesse [Jackson] and no black woman can ever be considered for anything outside what she can give with her body."
Mr. Wright thundered on: "America is still the No. 1 killer in the world… We are deeply involved in the importing of drugs, the exporting of guns, and the training of professional killers… We bombed Cambodia, Iraq and Nicaragua, killing women and children while trying to get public opinion turned against Castro and Ghadhafi… We put [Nelson] Mandela in prison and supported apartheid the whole 27 years he was there. We believe in white supremacy and black inferiority and believe it more than we believe in God."
His voice rising, Mr. Wright said, "We supported Zionism shamelessly while ignoring the Palestinians and branding anybody who spoke out against it as being anti-Semitic… We care nothing about human life if the end justifies the means…"
Concluding, Mr. Wright said: "We started the AIDS virus… We are only able to maintain our level of living by making sure that Third World people live in grinding poverty…"

To call Obama's associates liberal would be an insult to liberals. They are of the ultra-Left, prominently including his nasty wife, the unhinged race-baiter Wright, the communist Frank Marshall Davis, and unrepentant terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. The thread tying them together is an irrepressible hatred of America.

A member of the Manson Family would be no less qualified for the presidency.

Cuban Soccer Team Defects to America

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:44 AM

El Comandante may be out of the picture, but so long as you have free countries and socialist countries, you will have embarrassing defections. Seven members of Cuba's soccer team took advantage of an Olympic qualifying match in the USA to sneak away, exploiting the "wet foot, dry foot" policy that will allow them to apply for residency, having reached free soil.

No word from Michael Moore or the MSM on why Cubans are so eager to escape from all that marvelous free healthcare.

In the interest of reciprocity, we need to send a troupe of entertainers to Cuba, and give them a chance to defect. Danny Glover, Chevy Chase, and Linda Ronstadt are particularly defective.

Public Homosexual Acts to Be Legal in Amsterdam's Vondelpark

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:04 AM

The Telegraph confirms that public sex will be permitted under the new rules of conduct for Holland's best-known park.

Amsterdam's beautiful Vondelpark in the centre of city draws hordes of summer visitors, families, skaters and joggers. But the park's rose garden has become famous as a trysting spot for gay men looking for uncomplicated sexual encounters.

Reasons Alderman Paul van Grieken:

Why should we try to impose something that is actually impossible to impose, which also causes little bother for others and for a certain group actually means much pleasure?

Not to worry, we haven't reached complete anarchy just yet. The Jim McCreepy types will be asked to clear their AIDS-infected condoms away. Also, dog owners will face stiff fines if they let their pets run around without a leash.

During a year of monumental change, the Denver Film Society and Denver Office of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the Denver 2008 Convention Host Committee, invite you to share your definition of democracy. By giving you an outlet for your voice, we hope to come closer to our own definition of democracy!

Filmmakers have five minutes to answer the question, "How do you define democracy?" The top 25 videos will be screened publicly during the Democratic National Convention.

More Psychosis from Jeremiah Wright, High Priest of Obamaland

Posted by Dave Blount at 5:56 PM

A few more words of metaphysical wisdom from Barack Obama's close associate and spiritual mentor for the last two decades, the race-baiting, America-hating, foul-mouthed demagogue Jeremiah Wright:

At the conclusion of the most intensely vituperative and unnervingly unhinged denunciation of America I have ever heard, Reverend Wright evokes enthusiastic applause by thundering:

God has got to be sick of this shit!!!

It looks like this sick creep's evil God will get his revenge, once his acolyte Obama gets into the White House.

If only Obama were as Muslim as his politically correct name, it would be preferable to his actual religion, which is the worship of hatred for Caucasians and America.

The fact that his close ties to Wright aren't enough to end Obama's career as decisively as Eliot Spitzer's just ended means this country is headed for terrifying times.

Walter Williams Addresses the Biofuel Boondoggle

Posted by Dave Blount at 5:21 PM

Walter Williams lists a few of the reasons we need to pull the plug on the biofuel boondoggle immediately:

  • Because corrosive water cannot be removed from it, ethanol cannot be moved by pipeline, but only by more expensive and energy-intensive methods, like truck.
  • Ethanol is 20–30% less efficient than gasoline.
  • It takes 450 pounds of corn to produce enough ethanol to fill an SUV's tank.
  • It takes 1,700 gallons of water to make one gallon of ethanol.
  • It takes over a gallon of gasoline to produce a gallon of ethanol.

If ethanol made sense, the free market would produce it. Since it's insane, government subsidies are required:

That's why Congress has enacted major ethanol subsidies, about $1.05 to $1.38 a gallon, which is no less than a tax on consumers. In fact, there's a double tax — one in the form of ethanol subsidies and another in the form of handouts to corn farmers to the tune of $9.5 billion in 2005 alone.

Maybe our government is not so much pernicious and corrupt as well-meaning but incompetent. But…

If Congress and President Bush say we need less reliance on oil and greater use of renewable fuels, then why would Congress impose a stiff tariff, 54 cents a gallon, on ethanol from Brazil?

Ethanol is also driving up food prices worldwide. But on the positive side, it's helping politicians rake in donations from the companies that make it.

Muslims Use U.N. to Suppress Free Speech

Posted by Dave Blount at 4:26 PM

Just as communists are trying to use the United Nations to redistribute wealth in the name of the global warming hoax, Muslims are using it to suppress the right of free speech worldwide:

Islamic states are bidding to use the United Nations to limit freedom of expression and belief around the world, the global humanist body IHEU [International Humanist and Ethical Union] told the U.N.'s Human Rights Council on Wednesday.
In a statement submitted to the 48-nation Council, the IHEU said the 57 members of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC) were also aiming to undermine the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
"The Islamic states see human rights exclusively in Islamic terms, and by sheer weight of numbers this view is becoming dominant within the U.N. system. The implications for the universality of human rights are ominous," it said.

Ominous is putting it mildly. One of the best reasons I can think of to own a gun is that you'll need it when foreigners in blue helmets come to take it away.

Under E.U. Pressure, Sweden Gets Moonbattier

Sweden is introducing a new discrimination law, which will add age and "sexual identity" to gender, ethnic background, religion, disabilities, and "sexual preference" on the list of factors that make some animals more equal than others. There is to be a new Office of the Discrimination Ombudsman, and discrimination suits will be replaced by discrimination compensation.

Apparently this was instigated by menacing growls from Sweden's overlords in Brussels:

The EU threatened last summer to drag Sweden before the European Court of Justice if it didn't act to strengthen its laws and raise the level of available compensation.

Not even liberal Sweden is moonbatty enough for the European Union. But that will be corrected, now that it is no longer a country but only a province.

Sarah Mukherjee Defends Caucasians from BBC Bigots

Posted by Dave Blount at 2:57 PM

Political correctness has reached the point in Britain that the only people who dare stick up for maligned Caucasians are non-Europeans. The execrable BBC is running a series slandering whites, depicting the white working class as racist, violent, alcoholic, living off welfare, etc. Senior BBC reporter Sarah Mukherjee actually spoke up against the ham-fisted bigotry.

The reporter, who is Asian, made the comments after Richard Klein, the BBC's commissioning editor for documentaries, said that the corporation had been "brave" to make a series of programmes about the "prejudices, alienation, fears and confusion" of the white working class. He said in an interview with the BBC's in-house magazine Ariel that the season should be watched by anyone "who thinks the BBC no longer takes risks".

Mukherjee comments:

I think you'll find that firefighters, ambulance workers and soldiers are brave, rather than filmmakers. And am I the only one for whom this season leaves a nasty taste in the mouth? […L]istening to the patronising conversations in some newsrooms you'd think white, working-class Britain is one step away from anarchy, drinking themselves senseless and pausing only to draw benefits and beat up a few Asian and black people.

If elitist Beebster weenies really want to impress us with their bravery, let's see them risk trying to survive on the free market without subsidies expropriated by force from the people they insult.

Obama's Pastor: God Damn America

Posted by Dave Blount at 12:49 PM

Barack Obama's unwillingness to wear flag pins or place his hand on his heart during the National Anthem is starting to make sense now. So are his wife's diatribes against America, a country in which she has felt no pride. So too is the lifetime achievement award Obama's church dedicated to rabid racist demagogue Louis Farrakhan.

Here's some video of Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama's pastor for the last 20 years, who married him to his nasty wife and baptized their daughters, and whom Obama credits with inspiring the hokey title of The Audacity of Hope:

Lowlight: "No no no! Not God bless America! God damn America!"

As ABC notes, Wright holds that America brought on the Muslim atrocities of 9/11 with its own "terrorism." But according to Obama:

I don't think my church is actually particularly controversial.

Obama says he likes the Reverend's vehemently racist "social gospel" because it focuses on Africa.

Choice nuggets of the wisdom we may soon be importing into the White House, from the pulpit of Reverend Wright:

The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing "God Bless America." No, no, no, God damn America, that's in the Bible for killing innocent people. God damn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme.

…and, from a few days after 9/11…

We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye. We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards. America's chickens are coming home to roost

If "chickens are coming home to roost" sounds familiar, you're probably thinking of the hebephrenically anti-American Ward Churchill. Imagine people who think like Ward Churchill in charge of foreign policy.

NewsBusters notes that Wright publicly refers to Clarence Thomas as "Clarence Colon," Condoleezza Rice as "Con-damn-nesia," and our country as "white America, the U.S. of KKK A."

In case you haven't had enough yet, here's more video of the demented piece of scum who could soon be the most influential religious figure in the country:

Lowlight: "Jesus was a poor black man who lived in a country and lived in a culture that was controlled by rich white people."

Meanwhile, Geraldine Ferraro simply points out the obvious and indisputable fact that Obama wouldn't be where he is if he weren't black, and she gets thrown under the bus by Obama's opponent. America is not supposed to acknowledge what it is on the verge of doing to itself; it's too awful to acknowledge.

A Caucasian voting for Obama would be like a Jew voting for Hitler. Yet moonbattery has deranged this country to the point that many people will — out of sheer cultural self-hatred sailing under the flag of "political correctness."

If Obama is actually elected we will go from "God bless America" to "God damn America" to "God help America."

Ohio Public Schools Used to Promote Homosexuality

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:33 AM

Militant homosexual groups, with the help of their allies in teachers unions and the media, are pushing the use of Ohio public schools to indoctrinate children into approving of homosexual depravity.

Squeals Marcus DeLene, a "preference choice" activist from Youngstown:

Schools need to really push and explain this issue to children at an early age. I've spoken to groups all over Ohio and Michigan about being treated equal because of their sexual preference and listened to concerns. The number one concern I've come across is the groups of (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) people in all areas feel they are prejudiced most by the older generation who pass the hatred to the younger generations.

"The hatred" means disapproval of disgusting, disease-spreading practices that have been forbidden for good reason throughout the world and throughout history.

Activist groups and the NEA work hand in hand:

GroundSpark — formerly Women's Educational Media — recently released "It's STILL Elementary, Talking About Gay Issues In Schools," along with a teaching guide to help elementary and middle school teachers facilitate age-appropriate classroom discussions about gay and lesbian people. […] The National Education Association strongly encourages educators to use "It's STILL Elementary" as a means of ensuring a safe and supportive learning environment for every child.

Another translation: "a safe and supportive learning environment for every child" means "an atmosphere in which sexual depravity is encouraged in children."

No wonder so many horror movies feature evil zeroing in on kids. Once children are corrupted, evil's job is done.

Militants are running this up the flagpole at our public schools.

Trees Are Heroes to Moonbats

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:24 AM

Now I get why moonbats refuse to honor our heroes. They have their own heroes, which don't need any honor, because they aren't even sentient — namely, trees:

Humans need heroes — entities that inspire us to overcome life challenges by demonstrating inspiration, protection and endurance. As a child, descriptions of heroes came solely from my history books — men who conquered and dismantled empires. I sought heroes from other sources, and found them, surprisingly often, in trees. The word tree is from the Sanskrit word deru, which means to be firm or solid. From it comes the words tree, durable, trust, continue and endure — all typifying heroism. […] I have learned that heroes need not be restricted to humans who are framed by television screens or the rifled arches of a 21-gun salute. I need only look out to the maple tree in my own front yard.

Next moonbats will bestow their admiration upon rocks, which are more firm and solid still, and which perform a noble function by filling the otherwise empty spaces between their ears.

Rhode Island Patriot David Richardson Assailed

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:29 AM

Even the smallest gestures of national self-defense are rigorously suppressed by media moonbats, as our country is washed away in a flood of illegal Third-World immigration. David Richardson, owner of a heating equipment supply store, asked a couple of Spanish-speaking customers for their Social Security cards, believing them to be illegal aliens. He's a member of Rhode Islanders for Immigration Law Enforcement, a citizens group trying to do what it can, in the absence of a government willing to perform its most fundamental duty by defending the nation from foreign invasion. Richardson, who ought to be commended for his sense of civic duty, soon learned that the nail that sticks its head up gets hammered down.

Absurdly, he was accused of being prejudiced against people who speak Spanish, as if there were no correlation between the Spanish language and the millions upon millions of colonists illegally invading our country from Latin America. He was of course found guilty of oppressing the "brown-skinned."

Richardson has even been accused of breaking the law for trying to uphold it. ACLU jackal Steven Brown barks that Richardson is guilty of "unfair sales practices," as well as "discrimination on the basis of race or national origin."

Moonbat Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center helpfully stepped forward to squeak that this is what happens when people listen to talk radio:

We hear everyday from U.S. congressmen and television pundits and talk radio about the many terrible things brown-skinned immigrants are doing to this country — and they are almost universally false — but the reality is, they lead directly to incidents like this, and, less directly, to violence.

Clearly talk radio must be silenced immediately before it inspires fiends like David Richardson to tear open the poor brown-skinned people with their bare hands and feast gruntingly upon their living guts. When everyone gets their news from sources like the Providence Journal, they'll submit much more gracefully to their country's steady obliteration.

Britain Starts Banning Fire Extinguishers

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:17 PM

The coercive infantilization of the British populace has reached another milestone. Private citizens are forbidden from using weapons to defend themselves, so that if attacked by criminals they must submit to their fate in hopes the authorities will come rescue them. Now this mentality has been extended to fire extinguishers, which authorities are beginning to ban:

The canisters could be dangerous if people use them without training, risk assessors said. And they could encourage people to stay and tackle a blaze rather than flee. The Fire Service is backing the ban — which could be brought in across the country under new rules.

Mike Edwards lives in a 10-storey building where fire extinguishers will no longer be permitted. He comments:

The Fire Service can't quickly get their equipment above the eighth floor — so if someone is trapped they are now just expected to sit and burn.

Better whole buildings should go up in smoke than people should take matters into their own hands. Who knows what independent notions they might develop?

Britain has bypassed Orwellian totalitarianism and gone straight to a parody of it.

Jack Kevorkian Running for Congress

Posted by Dave Blount at 4:07 PM

Jack Kevorkian, aka Dr. Death, is running for Congress in suburban Detroit. From a speech last January at the University of Florida, here are some samples of the remarkable philosophy that would guide Dr. Death's legislative decisions:

You think you're free? You've been duped. You swallowed public propaganda… We have never been a totally free country; despite all the propaganda you've heard [and] the brainwashing you've taken.
I have no respect for the law; none! Because it's corrupt… the law is our enemy. No law can create a crime. […] law is an enemy to rights […] disobeying the law is not a crime … it's just disobeying the law.

Kevorkian opines that America is

no different than Nazi Germany; they were aggressive too, [but] they were more honest about it. See, unfortunately for the Nazis, there was another power that could counteract them, the United States. Who can counteract us? America is like a bull in a china shop. There is no way to fight them. They can do what they want, lie, cheat and steal … and they do.
[…] Why are you hated in the rest of the world? Why? Because they know what you are, but you don't know[…] We're a fascist country you know… I'm not proud to be an American; I'm not proud to be a genocidal aggressor. America is wrong. We are a criminal country… we have a criminal group in Washington, [a] bunch of criminal dictators.

Having spent 8+ years in the slammer for indulging in his hobby of assisting suicides, Dr. Death says he would focus on prison reform. Commentary from Holy

Kevorkian would be perfect for a political job in Michigan. The Democrats have driven the economy to death's door, and now Kevorkian can put it out of its misery.

Dr. Death's independent candidacy might actually benefit the country — if it draws enough votes from Democrats to keep them from taking the seat.

If elected, he can sit next to Dennis Kucinich.

Bureaucrats Once Took a Stand Against Mexican Invasion

It's not true that bureaucrats have never done anything about the border crisis.

At a news conference, the legislators said Sonora — Arizona's southern neighbor, made up of mostly small towns — cannot handle the demand for housing, jobs and schools it will face as illegal Mexican workers here return to their hometowns without jobs or money.

Why Peter Garrett Wants to Ban Plastic Bags

Posted by Dave Blount at 1:49 PM

Australia's Environment Minister Peter Garrett wants to ban plastic shopping bags. Why? As Andrew Bolt illustrates, it can't be for the reasons he's been giving:

"I think everybody agrees that having 4 billion plastic bags floating around Australia's environment is not desirable."

But only 0.8% are "floating around" as litter. Most are buried in landfills, where they have been found to minimize the greenhouse gas emissions we're supposed to take so seriously. The manufacture of paper bags produces five times as much of these emissions as for plastic bags.

"I remember that incredible story about a whale, I think it was beached somewhere in France, and it had 800 kilos worth of plastic bags and rubbish inside it, when they opened it up."

The whale in question had eaten 800 grams, not kilograms, of garbage — including a total of two plastic bags.

"There are some 4 billion of these plastic bags floating around … ending up affecting our wildlife…"

Apparently this refers to a claim that plastic bags kill over 100,000 marine mammals every year. It's based on a misreading of a study that didn't even mention plastic bags.

A little hyperbole can be expected from Garrett, who claims that Chernobyl "caused the deaths of more than 30,000 people." The real number: 50.

As for Garrett's actual motive for wanting to ban something so many of us find so useful, Bolt theorizes:

If plastic bags were used only to gather morning dew and wild berries, no green would rage against them as they rage now. But they are instead the ultimate symbol of wicked capitalism — a product made by oil and used to carry home factory-made goodies from bulging shops. No wonder they must be banned, and let us choke on that, we loathsome mammals of the mall.

As always, environmentalism boils down to a sneak attack on the capitalist system that has provided us with such excellent lives.

Only government can protect us from shopping bags.

Dispatch from New Mogadishu

Posted by Dave Blount at 12:38 PM

Hats off to Detroit, for providing such a massive warning sign alerting us as to where moonbattery is taking our country. The latest from New Mogadishu:

A former homicide lieutenant who investigated the death of exotic dancer Tamara Greene said in a sworn affidavit he suspects the woman was killed by a member of the Detroit Police Department. Alvin Bowman also said in the affidavit he is aware of links between Greene and "high-ranking city employees" and an unnamed associate of Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick.

Evidently, Greene had stripped for money at Kilpatrick's Manoogian Mansion, and was assassinated by the police, possibly because she wouldn't keep her mouth shut about having been seriously assaulted there by Kilpatrick's wife.

The Motor City Mayor has misused the police before:

The mayor is embroiled in controversy over $8.4 million in city settlements paid to three other former Detroit police officers who filed whistle-blower suits alleging they were retaliated against for reporting or investigating alleged wrongdoing by the mayor and his police bodyguards.

How could a goon like Kwame Kilpatrick get elected Mayor of a major American city? The same way the obviously underqualified leftist Barack Obama could be elected President.

Contract murders can get you in hot water, even in Detroit. Naturally Kilpatrick defends himself by playing the ever-reliable race card, even dropping the N word on live TV:

In the past 30 days, I've been called a n----- more than any time in my entire life.

The poor guy's a victim of racism. What's all this fuss about a dead stripper?

As with Eliot Spitzer, the media has been refusing to acknowledge that Kilpatrick is a Democrat. Maybe they just realize it's obvious.

Ban Ki-moonbat's Solution to Food Shortages: More of the Bureaucracy That Caused Them

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:21 AM

Worldwide, the price of food has been rising alarmingly. This is largely because global warming hysteria has enabled the boondoggle by which authoritarian bureauweenies use our money to subsidize inefficient biofuels, so that food goes into gas tanks instead of people's bellies. It is also due in part to authorities meddling with the free market in unhelpful attempts to address the food shortage.

No agency has done more to hype the global warming hoax than the United Nations, so it's fitting that top U.N. bureauweenie Ban Ki-moon should offer a solution. The first three steps are to:

  1. Give the U.N.'s World Food Program more money.
  2. "[S]trengthen U.N. programs to help developing countries deal with hunger."
  3. Address "the long-term consequences of climate change" — i.e., continue pushing the global warming farce.

They didn't make Ki-moonbat Secretary-General for nothing. He understands the vicious cycle that allows parasitical bureaucracies to continue metastasizing until they finally kill their host. It works like this:

  1. Bureaucrats invent a nonexistent problem, like global warming.
  2. Heavy-handed attempts to fix the imaginary problem create real problems.
  3. These real problems are used to justify bureaucratic expansion.
  4. More bureaucracy leads to more problems, requiring more bureaucracy.

Through this process, even the constitutionally lean American government has been allowed to bloat into a monstrous obscenity that will be our country's downfall.

Ban Ki-moonbat, bureauweenie extraordinaire.

The burqa is the wardrobe of choice for many Muslim women. It is worn over a woman's daily clothing, usually covering her from head to toe. Today, the burqa has gone designer, popping up on fashion runways in the West, like at this show by Norwegian designers Marked Moskva in Norway earlier this month. Here, a burqa evokes traditional Norwegian dress. The designers reportedly say they are aiming their collection at Muslims and non-Muslims.

Eliot Spitzer — Frankenstein Monster of the MSM

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:31 AM

As it comes to light that crusading moonbat Eliot Spitzer has been blowing $thousands in cathouses for years, journalists are scratching their hollow skulls and wondering how such a public figure could think he would get away with it. As Kimberley Strassel observes, they'll find an answer in the mirror:

[F]rom the start, the press corps acted as an adjunct of Spitzer power, rather than a skeptic of it. […] Time magazine bestowed upon Mr. Spitzer the title "Crusader of the Year," and likened him to Moses. Fortune dubbed him the "Enforcer." A fawning article in the Atlantic Monthly in 2004 explained he was "a rock star," and "the Democratic Party's future." In an uncritical 2006 biography, then Washington Post reporter Brooke Masters compared the attorney general to no less than Teddy Roosevelt.

This is because Spitzer played to journalists' jejune leftist ideology, posing as the "moral avenger" taking on the "Wall Street titan."

He knew what sort of storyline they'd be sympathetic to, and spun it.

Spitzer "played the media like a Stradivarius," catering to moonbat prejudices, rewarding toadies with valuable information, and slamming the door on anyone with the integrity to criticize him. The press helped him bully and smear his opponents, and buried anything that might embarrass him. Without this cooperation, he might not have been such a thug:

The Spitzer method was to target public companies and officials, leak allegations and out-of-context emails to a compliant press, watch the stock price fall, threaten a corporate indictment (a death sentence), and then move in for a quick settlement kill. There was rarely a trial, fair or unfair, involved.
On the substance, his court record speaks for itself. Most of Mr. Spitzer's high-profile charges have gone up in smoke. A New York state judge threw out his case against tax firm H&R Block. He lost his prosecution against Bank of America broker Ted Sihpol (whom Mr. Spitzer threatened to arrest in front of his child and pregnant wife). Mr. Spitzer was stopped by a federal judge from prying confidential information out of mortgage companies. Another New York judge blocked the heart of his suit against [former New York Stock Exchange chief Dick] Grasso. [Former American International Group CEO Maurice "Hank"] Greenberg continues to fight his civil charges. The press was foursquare behind Mr. Spitzer in all these cases, and in a better world they'd share some of his humiliation.

Spitzer thought he could get away with anything because he had the press on his side. Combined with great power this produced arrogance that attained sociopathic levels.

I wonder if there's anyone else in a position to assume great power, who has learned to count on fawning subservience from the mainstream press?

Another Spitzer in the making?

Serious Consequences for Buying Candy in High School

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:00 AM

An eighth-grade honors student is in big trouble in moonbatty New Haven, Connecticut:

Michael Sheridan was stripped of his title as class vice president, barred from attending an honors student dinner and suspended for a day after buying a bag of Skittles from a classmate.
The New Haven school system banned candy sales in 2003 as part of a district-wide school wellness policy, said school spokeswoman Catherine Sullivan-DeCarlo.

The poor kid had no idea that even buying a bag of Skittles from a classmate is now against the rules — not that you can expect kids to take the rules terribly seriously when common sense will tell them that their schools are asylums presided over by folks who should be wearing jackets with extra long sleeves, as they gibber about "wellness" and bash their noggins on the padded walls in the Quiet Room.

David Mamet Outgrows Moonbattery

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:20 AM

A member of the elite intelligentsia has cured himself of moonbattery. Playwright David Mamet, from yesterday's essay "Why I Am No Longer a 'Brain-Dead Liberal'":

I took the liberal view for many decades, but I believe I have changed my mind.

According to liberal ideology, everything is always wrong, so we must Hope for Change, to be imposed by an omnipotent bureaucracy.

But in my life, a brief review revealed, everything was not always wrong, and neither was nor is always wrong in the community in which I live, or in my country. Further, it was not always wrong in previous communities in which I lived, and among the various and mobile classes of which I was at various times a part. […]
What about the role of government? Well, in the abstract, coming from my time and background, I thought it was a rather good thing, but tallying up the ledger in those things which affect me and in those things I observe, I am hard-pressed to see an instance where the intervention of the government led to much beyond sorrow.

The whole edifice of liberalism started to crumble within him…

And I began to question my hatred for "the Corporations" — the hatred of which, I found, was but the flip side of my hunger for those goods and services they provide and without which we could not live. And I began to question my distrust of the "Bad, Bad Military" of my youth, which, I saw, was then and is now made up of those men and women who actually risk their lives to protect the rest of us from a very hostile world.

Mamet praises the free market as the best model for social organization and even calls Thomas Sowell "our greatest contemporary philosopher." Miserable liberals lost in the fever swamps of authoritarian moonbattery can take heart: there is still hope for you if you open your minds.

Now if he could just do something about those glasses…

Profiles in Moonbattery: Martina Navratilova

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:32 PM

Apparently whacking around a tennis ball isn't the best preparation for a second career in comparative politics. Martina Navratilova escaped the communist hellhole Czechoslovakia at age 18. Like so many before and after her, she was welcomed by America with open arms. Exchanging slavery for freedom, she became rich and famous beyond the wildest dreams of anyone left behind the Iron Curtain.

Unfortunately the great bounty bestowed by America can spoil people rotten — even people who know firsthand that the rest of the world isn't so lucky. The loudly lesbian Navratilova now wants us to know that she is ashamed of America because she doesn't like President Bush.

Here's what she's telling folks back in the Czech Republic, which would still be part of the slave state Czechoslovakia if not for America:

The thing is that we elected Bush. That is worse. Against that, nobody chose a communist government in Czechoslovakia.

Back in 2002, she was screeching to the receptive German media:

The most absurd part of my escape from the unjust system is that I have exchanged one system that suppresses free opinion for another.

I won't bother to explain the difference between a totalitarian regime that imprisons, tortures, and kills dissidents and America, where even an obnoxious moron like Navratilova can get her abhorrent opinions plastered across the news.

Navratilova has reestablished her Czech nationality. The nicest thing I can think of to say to her is: You made your fortune, lady. Now get the hell out.

A face that could scare Rosie O'Donnell straight.

Chilling Words

Posted by Dave Blount at 2:11 PM

The odds don't look good for Shrillary, but not everyone is convinced we've escaped the disgrace of the Clintons reinfesting the Oval Office. Peggy Noonan finishes a recent WSJ editorial on a chilling note:

I end with a deadly, deadpan prediction from Christopher Hitchens. Hillary is the next president, he told radio's Hugh Hewitt, because, "there's something horrible and undefeatable about people who have no life except the worship of power … people who don't want the meeting to end, the people who just are unstoppable, who only have one focus, no humanity, no character, nothing but the worship of money and power. They win in the end."
It was like Claude Rains summing up the meaning of everything in the film "Lawrence of Arabia": "One of them's mad and the other is wholly unscrupulous." It's the moment when you realize you just heard the truth, the meaning underlying all the drama. "They win in the end." Gave me a shudder.

The Clintons are like Jason Voorhees. No matter how dead he is at the end of the movie, there's always another sequel. If they could survive Slick Willy being impeached by the House for committing multiple felonies while in office, it's hard to believe a rookie like Obambi could kill them so that they actually stay dead.

Mugabe Admits to Hunger Crisis, Blames the White Man

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:02 AM

Leftist dictator Robert Mugabe has finally admitted that Zimbabwe — which features 100,000% inflation and fittingly chairs the U.N.'s Sustainable Development Commission — has a starvation problem. However, he didn't go so far as to admit that the crisis was created when he seized land from Caucasians who knew how to use it, and passed it out to blacks who didn't. As always, it is the white man who is somehow "racist" and to blame.

According to the World Food Program, 45% of Zimbabweans suffer chronic malnourishment due to "poor agricultural policies and a declining economy." Food production has fallen by 70%. Millions have escaped the country.

Ed Morrissey comments on the erstwhile Breadbasket of Africa:

[W]hen the Brits left the former Rhodesia, the farms actually produced enough food to feed Zimbabwe and a few other African nations as well. Zimbabwe was a net exporter of agriculture until Mugabe decided to seize the land and redistribute it[… N]ow the Zimbabweans starve on some of the best land in Africa.
This again proves something Westerners will do well to remember: almost all famine is political. Even weather-created crises usually pass quickly in systems based on stable and free-market economics. When oppressive regimes start making five-year plans and seizing land from proven producers, one can predict with deadly accuracy the starvation that will follow. In that sense, Mugabe differs little from Mao and Stalin.

But the good news is that, unless you believe Mugabe, Whitey isn't causing oppression anymore. He's just shoveling aid money down a bottomless pit of misery.

The High Environmental Cost of Enviromoonbattery

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:19 AM

Solar panels are not only inefficient, their manufacture has been turning parts of the world into toxic waste dumps:

Gaolong, China — The first time Li Gengxuan saw the dump trucks from the nearby factory pull into his village, he couldn't believe what happened. Stopping between the cornfields and the primary school playground, the workers dumped buckets of bubbling white liquid onto the ground. Then they turned around and drove right back through the gates of their compound without a word.
This ritual has been going on almost every day for nine months, Li and other villagers said.
In China, a country buckling with the breakneck pace of its industrial growth, such stories of environmental pollution are not uncommon. But the Luoyang Zhonggui High-Technology Co., here in the central plains of Henan Province near the Yellow River, stands out for one reason: It's a green energy company, producing polysilicon destined for solar energy panels sold around the world. But the byproduct of polysilicon production — silicon tetrachloride — is a highly toxic substance that poses environmental hazards.
"The land where you dump or bury it will be infertile. No grass or trees will grow in the place. … It is like dynamite — it is poisonous, it is polluting. Human beings can never touch it," said Ren Bingyan, a professor at the School of Material Sciences at Hebei Industrial University.

Kind of reminds you of Sudbury, Ontario, which now looks like some lifeless alien planet, thanks to nickel production for Prius batteries. It also brings to mind the rainforest getting plowed under to grow inefficient biofuels.

But the important thing is for liberals to feel they are "doing something" about the imaginary global warming crisis.

Two Days Detention for Patriotic Shirt

There's a much higher level of sensitivity these days. But it's based on reality.

Pink Dog Causes Problems with the Law in Boulder

In Boulder, Colorado — the moonbat enclave where pets are officially regarded as "companion animals" — a woman is being fined $1,000 for oppressing her poodle by dyeing it pink.

Joy Douglas's adorable Cici is a "breast-cancer awareness dog," thus the pink dye job. But not even preventing breast cancer is noble enough to excuse the barbaric practice of dog-dyeing.

Authorities have been using a section of the city code intended to prevent the dyeing of chicks and bunnies for Easter to prosecute her for staining Cici's fur with beet juice and Kool-Aid. Police would probably be happy to forget the whole thing, but concerned citizens keep calling to complain.

Moonbat Mob Assails 84-Year-Old Veteran at Karl Rove Speech

As is usually the case when anyone to the right of Vladimir Lenin speaks at a college campus, militant leftists attempted to silence Karl Rove when he appeared at the University of Iowa Sunday.

Tactics were typically infantile. Moonbats hollered and booed, stood with their back to the podium, etc. Some had to be removed by police after charging the stage, screaming that the mild-mannered Fox News analyst and former Bush political advisor should be arrested for apparently unspecified political crimes.

Rove easily got the better of the witless vermin, keeping his cool while insisting on his right to be heard.

More infuriating even than the attempt to silence political speech was the fascistic moonbats' treatment of 84-year-old veteran Bill Olin, who was told to "F--- off" when he asked the mob to stop shouting. Laments Olin:

I've lived in Iowa City more than 60 years, and I have never been more ashamed than I am tonight of the disrespect shown by these people.

Environazis Push to List Flourishing Polar Bears as Endangered Species

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:32 PM

Bent on the destruction of modern civilization, environmental totalitarians are exploiting our deranged courts in an attempt to force the Bush Administration to list polar bears as an endangered species.

Polar bear numbers have been on the rise, just as world temperatures have been heading in the opposite direction. Yet according to moonbat ideology, global warming is about to make polar bears extinct.

If their suit is successful, driving your car, running your lawnmower, or even breathing would make you guilty of oppressing endangered polar bears, regardless of where you live.

The implications are amazing. If envirofascists take this farce as far as they clearly would like to, the end of civilization will come not from plague, from nuclear war, from a giant meteorite, or even from something as believable as invading aliens, but from a lunatic overreaction to a nonexistent threat to man-eating beasts inhabiting a godforsaken wasteland at the far end of the world.

Trial Lawyer–Democrat Alliance Holds Up FISA

Posted by Dave Blount at 1:01 PM

Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) comments on the unconscionable irresponsibility of our Democrat-controlled House, which went on vacation rather than pass updates to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. The Protect America Act was allowed to expire almost a month ago, leaving Americans handcuffed by outdated legal restrictions that prevent surveillance of terrorists, with the obvious potential of getting Americans killed both at home and abroad. Why would Congressional Dems drag their feet on this crucial legislation?

Some 98 percent of America's electronic technology is owned by private companies, and their cooperation is essential in preventing terrorist attacks. But trial lawyers have filed lawsuits seeking billions of dollars from telecommunications firms that have helped our government stop another 9/11.
The Senate-passed bill provides protection against lawsuits for firms acting in good faith on government requests for help. This lawsuit protection is necessary to make certain they can protect their shareholders from legal expense even while they do their part to keep Americans safe.

But trial lawyers pony up quite a lot of cash for the Dems. Shysters who want to sue phone companies for cooperating with antiterror efforts include Matthew Bergman of Vashon, Washington, who has given over $400,000 to Democrats, and Mikal Watts of Corpus Cristi, Texas, was has given over $200,000 and who attempted to run for Cornyn's seat.

The FISA updates made it through the Senate despite 29 Democrats voting against them. Of these, 24 have accepted campaign contributions form trial lawyers who are suing the government for surveilling terrorists.

It's not just the Vatican hedging its bets by buying into the moonbat quasi-religion that is displacing Christianity. Via La Times:

In a major shift, Southern Baptist leaders say their denomination has been "too timid" on environmental issues and has a biblical duty to stop global warming.
The declaration, signed by the president of the Southern Baptist Convention and others, is being released today. It shows a growing sense of urgency about climate change even within groups that once dismissed claims of an overheating planet as a liberal ruse.

Ironically, this comes as evidence that the climate isn't even warming — much less warming because of human activity — is becoming impossible to ignore.

Florida Marlins relief pitcher Logan Kensing's family owns a ranch in Texas. To keep rapidly breeding wild pigs from wreaking havoc, Kensing thins their numbers from a helicopter. According to the militants at the Palm Beach County Environmental Coalition, this will not do.

Louis: I want you to f*** me, hurt me, make me bleed.
Man: I want to.
Louis: Yeah?
Man: I want to hurt you.
Louis: F*** me.
Man: Yeah.
Louis: Hard?
Man: Yeah. You been a bad boy?
(They begin to f***.)
(Louis slips his hand down the front of Joe's pants. They embrace more tightly. Louis pulls his hand out, smells and tastes his fingers, and then holds them for Joe to smell … they kiss again.)

Here's another:

Man: I think it broke. The rubber. You want me to keep going? (Little pause) Pull out? Should I —
Louis: Keep going. Infect me. I don't care. I don't care.

A little good news: after a six-week battle, enraged parents were able to get this moved from the required to the optional reading list.

The degeneration of our culture makes it hard to protect children from the depraved pornography liberal educrats would like to ram down their throats. Angels in America won two Tony awards, and the HBO version was nominated for an Emmy. Author Tony Kushner won the Pulitzer Prize. Obscenity is now mainstream, compliments of moonbattery.

In Favor of Extended Unemployment Benefits

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:31 AM

Moonbat Franklin Schneider explains why unemployment benefits should be extended, as both Shrillary and the Obamatron recently voted to do (McAmnesty missed the vote):

When the federal economic stimulus package hit the news in January, my latest run on unemployment was just going dry, and the mere prospect of getting another job was enough to make my testicles retract into my body. When reports surfaced that a three- or six-month (!!) unemployment extension was going to be part of the package, it seemed like government was finally doing something for the little guy, instead of just the fat cats and whiny Christians. I spent the next two weeks Google News-ing "unemployment extension economic stimulus" every 10 minutes.
When the package including the extension failed by one vote, I was so fucking pissed at the United States government that if an al-Qaeda recruiter had pitched me at that moment, I'd be in the Afghanistan desert as we speak, screaming Arabic at the top of my lungs while bayoneting an Uncle Sam mannequin.
I've been on unemployment three times in the past six years. Each time was better than the last, and each time I stayed on until the last cent was exhausted. I didn't even try to get a job; it was a paid vacation.

Vestigial remnants of the work ethic that built this country horrify Schneider:

Given a choice between getting a check every week for doing nothing and getting a check every week for flushing 40 hours of the prime of their lives down the toilet, they chose the latter. I mean, what kind of self-hating, masochistic Protestant bullshit is that?
Not only do I feel no guilt whatsoever about sucking from the state's teat, I feel that I'm absolutely entitled to it. First of all, the employer that fired me pays for half of my unemployment, and fuck them.

According to Marxist reasoning, Schneider explains, he has a right to expropriate his former employers' money. He sneers at people who "irreversibly fucked up" their lives by having children — which are expensive little burdens that make it hard to live off unemployment — and whines about how hard it is to get fired when you're a minority (he's half Korean). Then he gives helpful tips on shoplifting and how to meet unemployment requirements by sending out resumes that guarantee no one will hire you.

Who knows, maybe this is supposed to be parody. Moonbattery has reached the point where it's impossible to tell.

Barking Moonbat Richard Belzer Backs Obama

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:15 PM

Barack Obama has received an endorsement that will come as almost as small a surprise as the thumbs-up he got from Nicaragua's Marxist Daniel Ortega and Nation of Islam alumnus Rep Keith Ellison (D-MN): moonbat actor Richard Belzer, best known for publicly insulting American troops.

Still less surprising is the infantile reasoning that led Belzer to his choice:

I think the rest of the world, if they see that America elects a man of color I think they'll breathe a big sigh of relief and not think that we're this warmongering, rich white guy country.

Belzer must be extrapolating from his experience with the bathroom mirror in thinking that rich white guys are somehow a problem.

Financially successful Caucasians aren't the only people Belzer hates. Here's video of him managing to disgust not only Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) but possibly even his fellow moonbat Bill Maher with his foul-mouthed denunciation of American soldiers.

Arsonist Jennifer Kolar Set on Path to Crime by Campus Moonbattery

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:15 PM

The seeds of moonbattery planted at the University of Colorado blossomed into a life of crime for Earth Liberation Front terrorist Jennifer Kolar.

Kolar testified against Briana Waters, telling jurors that her former friend helped her and three others set a massive fire at the University of Washington. Kolar also admitted to trying in 1998 to burn down the Wray Gun Club in Wray [Colorado], one of four arsons she confessed to in her deal with prosecutors.

How did Kolar fall in with violent criminals?

Like many other ELF activists, Kolar described a path from academic promise to criminal infamy. She earned a bachelor's degree in applied mathematics from CU in 1995, a master's in astrophysics in 1997, then spent two years working toward a Ph.D. in oceanography, according to university records.
Kolar testified that she got her start in activism as an undergraduate working with the Colorado Public Interest Research Group, volunteering with Rocky Mountain Animal Defense and teaching at a student environmental center on the CU campus.

From there it was all downhill. COPIRG, by the way, is financed with student fees. Ward Churchill would be proud.

Brace Yourself for Governor Newsom

Posted by Dave Blount at 2:51 PM

To say that the Governator has been a disappointment would be putting it mildly, but California could do even worse:

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom is considering a 2010 run for governor — a campaign that would embrace many of the same divisive causes he has championed as mayor, including same-sex marriage, universal health care and protections for illegal immigrants, The Chronicle has learned.

Newsom has been building up his name recognition by writing opinion pieces for the unhinged ultra-left fever swamp Daily Kos, by squawking loudly about the righteousness of homosexual "marriage," and by posing in public with Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa Jr.

Under Newsom's guidance, San Francisco has degenerated into self-parody, calling for the 2004 election to be overturned, socializing medicine, killing JROTC, refusing to let the Marines film a recruiting commercial, and milking the global warming hoax for $millions in salaries for extraneous bureauweenies.

Newsom's mayoral accomplishments include:

His competition may include fellow flaming moonbats Jerry "Governor Moonbeam" Brown and fifth-columnist Antonio Villaraigosa. The Golden State's future looks anything but auriferous.

Moral Equivalence Permits an Abomination in Jerusalem

Posted by Dave Blount at 2:18 PM

The family of terrorist mass murderer Jebl Mukaber has erected a mourning tent in Jerusalem, commemorating the maniac who was able to kill eight innocent people at the Mercaz Harav yeshiva last Thursday before being gunned down. Above the tent flew the flags of the terror cults Hamas and Hezbollah, until police removed them.

According to an aide to Public Security Minster Avi Dichter, Mukaber's people have "every right" to put up the tent on Israeli territory, because what he did was no worse than the mass murder committed by Baruch Goldstein over 14 years ago.

Since Goldstein was such a bad guy, that must mean Jews have no right to object to crimes committed against them. Maybe next to the Mukaber tent they could put up a tent commemorating the poor Nazis who were hanged for their Holocaust crimes, so long as there's no swastika flag flying above.

Relatives Suing over Drunken Fool Drowning

Posted by Dave Blount at 1:18 PM

There is one positive aspect to the disintegration of our legal system into unmitigated moonbattery. It's easy to get rich now that you can sue anyone who has money for your own mistakes. You can even sue on behalf of others whose mistakes got them killed.

In Putnam Lake, north of New York City, a drunken Gladys Mendoza decided to take her 2-year-old nephew swimming, after the lifeguard went off duty. As sometimes happens to drunks who fail to stay away from the water, she drowned. Trying to swim in deep water with the kid on her back, she very nearly got him killed too.

Naturally, her relatives want to cash in. They claim that the Putnam Lake Community Council is to blame by allowing there to be "a large underwater boulder" that somehow caused her death. To have encountered the boulder, Mendoza would have to have been swimming six feet underwater.

Like many lawsuits, this one has no merit whatsoever. But you never know what a jury might decide. Maybe the Council should just pay the relatives to go away, as they're probably hoping. Better still, maybe swimming should just be banned, along with any other activities that could result in injury if engaged in by drunken idiots. That way, civilization won't get sued out of existence.

Moonbat Court Commissioner Marilyn Mackel Denies Foster Child Right to Join Marines

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:44 AM

Shawn Sage of Simi Valley has long dreamed of joining the Few and the Proud. Problem is, he's a foster child, so being 17 he can't sign up without the court's permission — which has been denied in a gesture of sedition:

In denying the Royal High School student delayed entry into the Marine Corps, Children's Court Commissioner Marilyn Mackel reportedly told Sage and a recruiter that she didn't approve of the Iraq war, didn't trust recruiters and didn't support the military.
"The judge said she didn't support the Iraq war for any reason why we're over there," said Marine recruiter Sgt. Guillermo Medrano of the Simi Valley USMC recruiting office.

The delayed enlistment program would allow Sage to finish his high school degree, lock in the sniper position he has his heart set on, and receive guidance from the Marines to prepare him for when his service would start. Sage's decision to join the Marines is fully supported by his foster parents.

By doing her part to undermine the war effort, Mackerel could be costing Sage a $10,000 signing bonus. At least she's a nondiscriminatory treasonous moonbat: she also denied delayed enlistment to "an eager Navy recruit." Her motives couldn't be more clear. Reports Sage's recruiter Medrano:

I even told Shawn, I said, "Dude, it feels like we've been burned at the stake at the Salem witch trial." She just had some kind of animosity toward military personnel.

This animosity is inherent to Mackerel's moonbat ideology: Ft. Hard Knox describes her as "a supporter of the ACLU and a Black Activist" who enjoys raving about "post-traumatic slavery disorder" and is the "contact person for the gay and lesbian law association."

The moonbat fifth column is broad, including city councils and domestic terrorists, in addition to judicial apparatchiks like Mackel. Very soon it may control the White House.

Environazis Gun for Video Games

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:06 AM

As with all totalitarian ideologies, environmentalists expect absolutely everything to comply to their dogma — right down to video games. Those who enjoy them will find a recent AFP report ominous:

Worldwide computer use requires 14 power stations for the necessary electricity, producing more harmful [sic] carbon dioxide emissions than the entire airline industry — not including the emissions created [from] manufacturing and shipping around the products in the first place.
And games consoles — of which 62 million were sold in last year — are the gas guzzlers of this industry, using huge amounts of energy to generate the necessary mindblowing graphics and sounds.
When played online, they are linked up to huge server farms which use even more energy.

Greenpeace deployed troops to the German IT fair CeBIT "vowing to sort the 'greenwash' from the genuine amid all the talk of green IT." It finds the gaming industry to be politically impure:

Nintendo provided no data for the investigation on its Wii console, Microsoft said they had no information, and Sony's details on the PlayStation were "very late and very insufficient," Greenpeace campaigner Zeina Al-Hajj said. Greenpeace suspects this speaks volumes.

Moonbattery Gets Mexicans Killed in Ecuador

Posted by Dave Blount at 3:06 PM

As many as half of the two dozen people killed in a Colombian raid on Marxist narco-terrorists hiding out in Ecuador may be Mexican moonbats, according to Ecuador's security minister.

A wounded Mexican student, 26-year-old Lucia Morett, has turned up in a Quito hospital. The Houston Comical reports:

The injured Mexican has ties to the national university's philosophy department, traditionally a bastion of leftist sympathies. […] Morett, who had finished most of her course work, has said she was visiting the FARC to research the guerrilla movement for her thesis, which she needs to graduate. […]
Radicalized leftist students from Mexico's national university […] have long supported revolutionary causes throughout the hemisphere. […] The FARC maintained a liaison office in Mexico City until 2002, when it was closed. El Universal reported Thursday that Morett had served in recent years as a key liaison between the FARC and national university groups.

Palestinians Celebrate Terrorist Massacre

Posted by Dave Blount at 1:55 PM

Good thing George Bush has been showering Palestinians with our money. With no need to work, they have plenty of free time for celebrations whenever innocent infidels are murdered by terrorists. Here they are living it up following last night's attack at Mercaz Harav yeshiva that killed eight students in Jerusalem, via Free Republic:



One more Palestinian party shot:


The AP caption for the last one reads:

Syrians and Palestinians, including representatives of the Damascus-based radical Palestinian factions, on Friday, March 7, 2008, wave flags and images of late George Habash, the founder of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, during a commemorative celebration in Damascus in honor of the deceased who passed away 40-days ago.

But the face on the flag doesn't look much like George Habash. Where have I seen it before?


Oh yeah.

Palestinians had the same reaction to 9/11.

Jonathan Kay comments:

I don't know that there is any more telling sign of the pathologized state of Palestinians society than that they see the targeted slaughter of children as an occasion for celebration. (And please: No letters accusing me of a double standard because I am not equally outraged by the (equally tragic) deaths of Palestinian children in Israeli counter-terrorism operations. Morally speaking, you cannot compare the deliberate targeting of students with the accidental death of children who have been seized upon as de facto human shields by Hamas terrorists.)
According to one report, an organization calling itself "the Martyrs of Imad Mughniyeh" took responsibility for the attack. If so, the symbolism is even more telling. Think about it: The Israelis eliminate one of the world's most deadly terrorists in a surgical strike that kills no one but the target. So the militant extremists from the Religion of Peace respond by … slaughtering students.
The hero here is Yitzhak Danon, a student at the yeshiva, who apparently had the honour of shooting the murderer. I guess the only good news to come out of this story is that this departed specimen from the Palestinians' crack al-Quds student-killer brigade was only one-quarter as competent as a mentally unstable Virginia campus shooter named Seung-Hui Cho.

Actually, the good news is that Israelis are permitted to defend themselves:

A seminary graduate who is an army officer and lives nearby rushed into the seminary with his weapon and killed the gunman, [seminary head David] Simchon told Israel Radio.
"He saw the terrorist shooting, and with amazing resourcefulness he went into one of the rooms and managed to kill him," he said. Police said the seminary graduate was assisted by another man who also shot the Palestinian.
The seminary serves some 400 high school students and young Israeli soldiers, and many of them carry arms.

Too bad only the bad guys have guns at places like Northern Illinois University and Virginia Tech.

How did Palestinian culture get to be so undeniably vicious and depraved? Three major factors have contributed:

  1. Islam, which assures them that being violent Muslims means they're always in the right, no matter what they do.
  2. A victim mentality, which assures them that being losers means they're always in the right, no matter what they do.
  3. Western moonbattery, which assures them that they can continue to live off free handouts, no matter what they do.

The Anti-Bali

Posted by Dave Blount at 12:16 PM

"Garbage in — gospel out." That's how astrophysicist and geoscientist Willie Soon described the process of the United Nations' IPCC using computer models to prop up the global warming hoax at the 2008 International Conference on Climate Change, which concluded this week in New York City. Marc Sheppard reports:

Granting a long overdue forum to noted dissenting scientists, economists and policy experts from around the world, the Heartland Institute-sponsored symposium at the Marriott Marquis offered welcomed reasoned analysis as alternative to last December's hysterical circus which was Bali. It also served as the perfect launch point for a long-awaited un-IPCC report — Nature, Not Human Activity, Rules the Climate: Summary for Policymakers of the Report of the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change [PDF].
Compiling the work of over 20 prominent fellow researchers, editor Fred Singer's NIPCC report distinguishes itself from the recent IPCC Fourth Assessment (AR4) and its predecessors in that it was not pre-programmed to "support the hypotheses of anthropogenic warming (AGW) and the control of greenhouse gases." Instead, the nearly 50 page document is a non-political authoritative rebuttal to the multi-government controlled IPCC's "errors and outright falsehoods" regarding warming's measurement, likely drivers, and overall impact.

Among the highlights were explanations as to why so many corporations are on board with a hoax that threatens to cripple the economy.

[T]he founder of explained GE's double-dipping ability to manufacture and sell windmills while receiving government subsidies for doing so. And how, under proposed cap-and-trade plans, companies like Alcoa and DOW will be eligible for retroactive carbon credits for emission abatements they've accomplished in the past. Oh, and who do you suppose owns the exchange where these carbon credits will be traded? Can you spell Goldman Sachs?

The appeal of the hoax for bureauweenies is more obvious. In the words of climate scientist Dr. Richard Lindzen:

Controlling Carbon is a bureaucrat's dream. If you control carbon you control life.

Predictably, the conference was trashed by the liberal media, to the extent it was covered at all. After all, they have a "consensus" to maintain.

Global Warming Hoax Has Been Good to Al Gore

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:39 AM

Though Al Gore failed as a presidential candidate, he has succeeded wildly as a con man, milking millions of dollars out of the global warming hoax:

Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore left the White House seven years ago with less than $2 million in assets, including a Virginia home and the family farm in Tennessee. Now he's making enough to put $35 million in hedge funds and other private partnerships.
Gore invested the money with Capricorn Investment Group LLC, a Palo Alto, California, firm that selects the private funds for clients and invests in makers of environmentally friendly products, according to a Feb. 1 securities filing. Capricorn was founded by billionaire Jeffrey Skoll, former president of EBay Inc. and an executive producer of Gore's Oscar-winning documentary film on global warming.

It looks like Gore stands to make $millions more — or even $billions, if the media can keep the hoax propped up long enough.

Thanks to global warming hysteria, the Goracle is able to charge a preposterously greedy $175,000 speaking fee. Already his net worth is well into nine figures. Not all of his riches come from the climate change hoax; he's made a mint from his involvement with left-leaning Google and Apple, which are no doubt grateful to him for inventing the Internet. But if Gore surpasses Warren Buffett at the top of the limousine liberal list, it will be through the clever strategy of using Capricorn to invest in products that his own overblown propaganda will inspire our increasingly authoritarian government to impose.

California Cracks Down on Homeschooling

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:55 AM

A lasting legacy of the Third Reich is the ban on homeschooling in Germany. You can see why an evil totalitarian regime would want to prevent children from bypassing government brainwashing. You can also see why California parents would want to spare their children from the unhinged depravity mandated in that state's public schools. Which brings us to this:

A California appeals court ruling clamping down on homeschooling by parents without teaching credentials sent shock waves across the state this week, leaving an estimated 166,000 children as possible truants and their parents at risk of prosecution. […] The Second District Court of Appeal ruled that California law requires parents to send their children to full-time public or private schools or have them taught by credentialed tutors at home. […] Parents can be criminally prosecuted for failing to comply, [Justice H. Walter] Croskey said.

This means that not only are Californians required to pay for the deranged agenda advanced in public schools, they have to subject their children to it. After all, it takes a village to turn your children in polysexual, communist moonbats who believe in the global warming hoax.

Obama Advisor Samantha Power Equates Waterboarding with Genocide

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:06 AM

Obama groupie and "senior advisor" Samantha Power has promised that Osama Obama will effect a "restoration of trust" with Britain by pandering to Europe's pacifistic liberal elite with his softness on Islamic terror, and by subjugating American sovereignty to the corrupt and despicable United Nations.

Jabbers the unhinged Power, who is described as "a key member of the Presidential hopeful's foreign policy team":

We have to show that we know we can't do it alone. It matters not just intrinsically that we close Guantanamo, it matters because we need to be credible at the UN. You can't be against genocide on a Monday and for water boarding on Tuesday, then on Wednesday show up at the UN.

The transitory discomfort of waterboarding has been applied to only a handful of top al Qaeda terrorists like 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheihk Mohammed, and has saved not only the Brooklyn Bridge, but many American lives. To compare it with genocide is childish and depraved — though no more depraved than fearing the moral judgments of the United Nations, whose fascistic Human Rights Council recently held a moment of silence for dead terrorists.

Power's qualifications as a presidential advisor include playing basketball with Tinseltown limousine Leninist George Clooney. She'll fit in well with a policy team that includes Merrill McPeak, who holds that the terrorists running Iran were actually our allies until George Bush hurt their feelings.

Gavin Newsom Pushes Discredited Tidal Power Boondoggle

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:50 PM

The point of government-imposed environmentalist measures is for insidious bureauweenies to increase their power and to posture. Whether they do society any good is doubtful but irrelevant. San Franfreakshow provides a case in point:

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom said Tuesday he still wants to submerge giant turbines below the waters of the Golden Gate Bridge as a way to generate energy for the city, despite a study that recently concluded the idea would cost tens of millions of dollars and is not financially feasible.
A study paid for by the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission found that the turbines would cost as much as $15 million each and $750,000 a year to maintain. Though the technology would make it possible [to] create power by harnessing tides in the bay, the small amount of power the turbines would generate does not make paying the hefty price tag worthwhile, the report concluded.
Newsom, however, said the findings won't deter him from pushing ahead with the idea.

Other bureauweenies had better climb aboard this extravagant boondoggle — or else:

The mayor's push to drop turbines below the bridge became part of the recent controversy surrounding the high-profile firing of San Francisco PUC General Manager Susan Leal, who said she backed away from the proposal when she received the results of the study commissioned by her agency. City Hall insiders said her disagreement with Newsom over the future of tidal power was part of the reason Leal was ousted from her job late last month.

Since Newsom wasn't interested in the results anyway, they might at least have shown the taxpayers a little mercy by not wasting money on the study.

The San Francisco PUC spent about $150,000 on its study, which concluded that a tidal power project in the bay would not only be expensive to build and operate, but the limited amount of power it would generate would also be expensive. Power generated from the tides would cost between 80 cents and $1.40 per kilowatt hour, according to the study. Pacific Gas and Electric Co.'s commercial rate for power, for example, is 12 cents per kilowatt hour.

Maybe raising the price of energy by over 1000% is part of a clever scheme to save the polar bears by repressing human activity levels.

Moonbat Infestations Spread in Berkeley Trees

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:34 AM

The arboreal moonbat infestations plaguing UC-Berkeley have spread to the center of campus, where an idiot calling himself "Fresh" has climbed into an oak tree and won't come down:

His concerns are broad — everything from Cal's deals with BP and Dow Chemical to how it treats campus custodians and Indian remains — but his major target is the UC Board of Regents that governs the university.
"They show no accountability to the students or community," said Fresh, whose face was mostly covered by a scarf [in imitation of the terrorists so admired by moonbats].

Fresh's actual concern is of course with drawing attention to himself. Inadvertently, he is providing a useful service, by publicizing the obnoxious absurdity of moonbats.

This service comes at a cost, but Fresh leaves that for others to pay:

The oak is now encircled by metal barricades erected Tuesday night, and two campus police officers are there around the clock, said Mitch Celaya, assistant chief of the UC Berkeley Police Department.

Typically of moonbats, he is making a mess:

He is now fasting on the juice of lemons and oranges, the remnants of which were scattered around the base of the tree.

As at the "Memorial Oak Grove" and UC-Santa Cruz, authorities have mainly themselves to blame, for lacking the fortitude to haul the moonbats out of the trees and throw them in jail on charges like trespassing, vandalism, and disturbing the peace.

Bush Shovels Our Money at Palestinian Terror Regime

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:04 AM

President Bush isn't letting a congressional ban stop him from shoveling piles of our money at the Palestinian terror regime:

US President George W. Bush announced Tuesday that he would override a congressional ban and transfer $150 million to the Palestinian Authority.
The United States has committed more than $500 million in aid money to the PA for 2008, but concerns about terrorism and corruption have caused Congress to ban direct money transfers to the Authority. Bush spokesmen said it is "crucial" to shore up PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and to prevent the financial collapse of the PA.

The theory is that Fatah terrorists aren't quite as evil as Hamas terrorists. But the many victims of Fatah-sponsored terror attacks are just as dead as Hamas' victims. I wonder what happened to this:

Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists.

U.N. Human Rights Council Holds Moment of Silence for Dead Terrorists

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:18 AM

At Iran's request, the fascistic obscenity calling itself the United Nations Human Rights Council held a moment of silence Tuesday for "martyrs in Gaza."

Officially, the gesture was on behalf of the "women and children who are nowadays under attack by the Zionist regime." Since "the Zionist regime" isn't attacking any women or children, the actual recipients of the U.N.'s sanctimonious tribute were Palestinian terrorists who got themselves killed while trying to kill Jews.

Yet American money continues to bankroll this depraved and pernicious organization.

Alien Arrested in Roswell, Moonbats Outraged

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:57 AM

A Roswell, New Mexico police officer has set off local moonbats by arresting an alien. It wasn't the kind from outer space but the much more plentiful Mexican variety, which soon will have completely overwhelmed the local population.

Karina Acosta, an 18-year-old pregnant Mexican, was busted for blocking a fire lane outside a school and for driving without a license. She'll be sent packing back to Chihuahua, from which she will probably return in time to drop her anchor baby.

Local liberals proclaim that schools should be off limits for immigration law enforcement. After all, we want the colonists who displace us to be educated, don't we? Whether the economy can afford to provide free education and healthcare for the hordes of Mexicans pouring over the undefended border is no concern of moonbats, who don't dirty themselves with the grubby details of conventional reality.

War on Military Recruiters Escalates with Bomb in Times Square

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:27 AM

It looks like the festering moonbattery that has resulted in the outlandish siege of the Marines recruiting office in Berkeley and the blockage of military transport in Olympia is spiraling out of control. Last night the military recruiting station in Times Square was bombed.

The Army, Marines, Navy and Air Force all recruit at the station, which is a favorite target of moonbat demonstrations thanks to its conspicuous location on a traffic island in the middle of the square. Fortunately the attack occurred at 3:45 AM, so no one was injured. Guests at a Marriott hotel four blocks away could feel the building shake from the blast.

Hopefully a few New Yorkers still remember the last time buildings shook from a terror attack. It's official: the enemy is within.

Harvard's Love for Fascistic Enemies Goes Way Back

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:07 AM

The sympathy of Ivy League educrats for America's fascistic enemies didn't begin on 9/11:

The Harvard University administration during the 1930s, led by President James Conant, ignored numerous opportunities to take a principled stand against the Hitler regime and the antisemitic outrages it perpetrated, and contributed to Nazi Germany's efforts to improve its image in the West. The administration's lack of concern about Nazi antisemitism was shared by many influential Harvard alumni and students. A faculty panel that supervised a mock trial of Hitler in 1934 ruled that Hitler's anti-Jewish actions were "irrelevant" to the debate. Nazi leaders were warmly welcomed to the Harvard campus and invited to prestigious social events, as the Harvard administration strove to build friendly relations with thoroughly Nazified universities in Germany. By doing so, Harvard's administration and many of its student leaders offered important encouragement to the Hitler regime as it intensified its persecution of the Jews and strengthened its armed forces.

If local Nazis had demanded Jew-free swim days, no doubt Harvard sports facilities would have complied.

Meet Commander Obama's Senior Military Advisor

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:49 PM

Just how much trouble will American be in if by some historical fluke Barack Hussein Obama becomes President? His most senior military advisor, General Merrill McPeak, offers a clue.

According to McGeek, Iran was our ally until W hurt its feelings:

"They were a big enemy of the Taliban," said the retired four-star general. "They cooperated with us quite completely in the initial phases of our Afghanistan operation. And it was us that insulted them by including them in the 'axis of evil' and making sure they understood we didn't like them very much."
McPeak, an Obama campaign co-chairman, was referring to Bush's post-September 11 speech in which he referred to North Korea, Iraq and Iran as an "axis of evil."
"That drove us apart," said McPeak. "Obama's idea is, why not talk to them. Why not see if there isn't some common ground. Certainly, the fight against al Qaeda would be one of them."

Soon after Iran's radical Islamic regime was conceived (with the assistance of the witless Jimmy Carter), it invaded our embassy in an overt act of war, holding Americans hostage for 444 days. In 1996, it killed 19 Americans in the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia, utilizing its cat's paw Hezbollah, which has been waging a terror war against our ally Israel. President Mad Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has promised to wipe Israel off the map, and has invited people to imagine a world without the USA. In light of their advanced nuclear weapons program, Iranians' threats carry some weight. Currently Iran is killing Americans in Iraq in an attempt to gain a stranglehold over the West's oil supply.

We're asked to believe that all of this is George Bush's fault, and that once Obama plays footsie with the ayatollahs, everything will be sweetness and light.

Having an IQ higher than a plant's, Frank Gaffney — a Pentagon policymaker in the Ronald Reagan administration and head of the Center for Security Policy — isn't buying it:

With all due respect to Gen. McPeak, what drives the United States and the Islamic Republic of Iran apart — and has since 1979 — is the unwavering antipathy of the regime in Tehran towards the United States, its ally Israel and freedom-loving, non-Islamist nations more generally.
It is not simply naïve, it is reckless to ignore: serial statements by the mullahs and their front man, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, about a world without America; their goons parading in Iranian cities shouting 'Death to America'; their active efforts to kill and maim Americans and Iraqis in the hope of defeating the United States in Iraq and rendering the latter an oil-rich satellite and new safe-haven for Iranian-backed terror; and accumulating evidence that Iran's Hezbollah proxies, and their intelligence agents are developing cells capable of unleashing deadly violence here as well as elsewhere. Even an individual without appreciable expertise in such matters like Sen. Obama should be able to discern these realities. It is inexplicable how a professional military officer like Gen. McPeak could fail to do so.

But there is an explanation: McWeak is a moonbat. If not, he would be doing everything in his power to protect America from Obama, not telling outlandish lies on his behalf.

Commander Obama would make Dukakis look like Patton.

Arun Gandhi Calls on Israel to Give Up and Die

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:34 PM

Great news for Israel: Arun Gandhi has come up with a solution to the Muslim hordes psychotically devoted to the destruction of this lonely outpost of democracy. Here goes:

Any nation that remains anchored to the past [i.e., the Holocaust, which Jews ought to just get over already] is unable to move ahead and, especially a nation that believes its survival can only be ensured by weapons and bombs. In Tel Aviv in 2004 I had the opportunity to speak to some Members of Parliament and Peace activists all of whom argued that the wall and the military build-up was necessary to protect the nation and the people. In other words, I asked, you believe that you can create a snake pit — with many deadly snakes in it — and expect to live in the pit secure and alive? What do you mean? they countered. Well, with your superior weapons and armaments and your attitude towards your neighbors would it not be right to say that you are creating a snake pit? How can anyone live peacefully in such an atmosphere? Would it not be better to befriend those who hate you? Can you not reach out and share your technological advancement with your neighbors and build a relationship?

Unless Gandhi is clinically retarded, he understands that any "technological advancement" shared with Arabs by a disarmed Israel would be applied toward driving the last Jew into the sea. Filter out the fatuous nonsense, and his message to Israel is: "Just die already."

Pretentious depravity seems to run in the family. Gandhi's famous granddad Mahatma also recommended that Jews submit to extermination for the greater glory of pacifism.

Arun Gandhi would make a fitting Secretary of State under President Obama.

Harvard Dhimmis Ban Men from Athletic Center

Posted by Dave Blount at 12:13 PM

While Barack the Obaminable bleats despicably about Muslims being rounded up and incarcerated, Harvard educrats give a better idea of the current state of affairs by banning men from the Quadrangle Recreational Athletic Center six times a week on behalf of the Harvard Islamic Society. Michael Graham reports:

When I asked Harvard spokesman Bob Mitchell about this new Sharia-friendly policy, he denied that they were banning anyone. "No, no," he told me, "we're permitting women to work out in an environment that accommodates their religion."
By banning all men from the facility, right?
"It's not 'banning,'" he insisted. "We're allowing, we're accommodating people."

Why don't we ban the word "ban" from the Newspeak dictionary? Then moonbat authoritarians won't have to twist themselves into such ridiculous knots.

Obama Accuses USA of Rounding Up Families for Having Arab Ancestry

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:24 AM

The wisdom of Barack Obamination, from a campaign ad that aired in Texas:

If there is an Arab-American family being rounded up without benefit of an attorney, it threatens my civil liberties.

Lance Fairchok comments on Obama's disgraceful insinuation that ethnic Arabs are being rounded up and thrown into concentration camps:

The bleak fantasy of Arab-American families interned for being Arabs and, of course, for being Muslim is very plausible to the radicals that help write his speeches. Senator Obama holds a wretched America in his heart, a country he has no pride in nor wishes to preserve. If his vision starts from failure, where will it end? There is no truth in his words, just as there is no substance. One may speak well, but still speak lies. An Obama presidency would be a disaster.

That this irresponsible left-wing fool is even considered a serious candidate suggests that a disaster is already underway.

Minnesota Moonbats May Sink Power Plant in South Dakota

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:19 AM

Plans to expand a power plant in South Dakota have been approved by the state's regulators, but not by those in neighboring Minnesota, which has resolved to generate 25% of its energy through "clean" sources — such as pixie dust and wishful thinking — by 2025. Since much of the power would be exported to Minnesota, the state that gave us Walter Mondale could sink the expansion:

"We're in a new era," said Dan Sharp, a spokesman for the five power companies proposing the project. "This is really a precedent-setting era where political activity in one state is having an impact on the economy and access to energy for people in other states."

Now your energy supply is threatened not only by the bureauweenies running your state, but by the kooks in charge of the state next door. Meanwhile, moonbats overtly hostile to the energy industry stand to take over the federal government. We could be in for some cold, dark winters.

Obama and Che

Humberto Fontova, Cuban immigrant and expert on the horrors of that country's communist regime, observes that it's hardly surprising Cuban flags featuring communist executioner Che Guevara would be prominently displayed by an Obama precinct captain.

He quotes Obama's frightening wife:

We live in isolation, and because of that isolation, we fear one another... [Barack Obama] is going to demand that you shed your cynicism, that you put down your division, that you come out of your isolation.
… Barack Obama will require you to work … that you move out of your comfort zones, that you push yourselves to be better, and that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual — uninvolved, uninformed.
… We have to fix our souls — our souls are broken in this nation … We can change the world!! … We can! … We can! … We can!

Then he quotes Cuba's answer to Heinrich Himmler, Che:

The most important revolutionary aspiration is to see human beings liberated from their alienation. Lack of education makes (some) take the solitary road toward satisfying their own personal ambitions…
The mass will carry out with matchless enthusiasm and discipline the tasks set by the government, whether in the field of the economy, culture, defense, sports, etc. … With ideological education the individual will reach total consciousness as a social being.
We must create a new consciousness, a New Man. We recognize the individual's quality of incompleteness, of being an unfinished product. The vestiges of the past are brought into the present in one's consciousness, and a continual labor is necessary to eradicate them … Society as a whole must be converted into a gigantic school.

Michelle Obama: America Is Rotten and Getting Worse

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:01 AM

Michelle Obama recently felt proud of her country for the first time, but that doesn't mean she likes the place. The New Yorker reports on her standard stump speech:

Obama begins with a broad assessment of life in America in 2008, and life is not good: we're a divided country, we're a country that is "just downright mean," we are "guided by fear," we're a nation of cynics, sloths, and complacents. "We have become a nation of struggling folks who are barely making it every day," she said, as heads bobbed in the pews. "Folks are just jammed up, and it's gotten worse over my lifetime. And, doggone it, I'm young. Forty-four!"
From these bleak generalities, Obama moves into specific complaints. Used to be, she will say, that you could count on a decent education in the neighborhood. But now there are all these charter schools and magnet schools that you have to "finagle" to get into. (Obama herself attended a magnet school, but never mind.) Health care is out of reach ("Let me tell you, don't get sick in America"), pensions are disappearing, college is too expensive, and even if you can figure out a way to go to college you won't be able to recoup the cost of the degree in many of the professions for which you needed it in the first place. "You're looking at a young couple that's just a few years out of debt," Obama said. "See, because, we went to those good schools, and we didn't have trust funds. I'm still waiting for Barack's trust fund. Especially after I heard that Dick Cheney was s'posed to be a relative or something. Give us something here!"

America has been awfully good to the wealthy corporate lawyer and possible next First Lady Michelle Obama. But moonbats only believe in guilt, not gratitude. Besides, if voters can't be convinced that America is awful, how can you sell them totalitarian Change as an end in itself?

America is "just downright mean."

Green Light for Communist Brainwashing in California Schools

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:16 AM

Now that glorification of homosexual and transsexual depravity is to be mandated in California schools, references to normal families are restricted, and global warming propaganda is to be imposed, militant moonbats have moved to the next step: instilling communism.

School property is not to be used by groups that advocate the overthrow of the American government — including communists. SB 1322 would change that. It would make it impossible to fire a teacher for being a member of the Communist Party, which aims to destroy democracy in America and replace it with a totalitarian slave state. Worse, it would "strike the law that prohibits a teacher giving instruction in a school or on public school property from teaching communism with the intent to indoctrinate or to inculcate in the mind of any pupil a preference for communism."

Teaching about communism is of course already allowed. SB 1322 applies to communist indoctrination, instilled by actual Stalinists on the taxpayers' dime. Just when you thought the Cold War was over.

Communist governments killed 100,000,000 of their own citizens in the course of the 20th century. But don't expect kids to learn that from their textbooks, which tend to be written to the demented specifications of the largest market, the Land of Fruits and Nuts.

Leftist N.Y. Times Publisher Evades Paying Taxes

Even the New York Times' leftist publisher Pinch Sulzberger only likes taxes when other people pay them. From the New York Sun:

It's not every day that one finds a tax policy argument in the world-famous gossip column of the New York Post, but there it was yesterday in "Page Six": The news was that the publisher of the New York Times, Arthur Sulzberger Jr., had sold his Upper West Side apartment to his wife for $3.25 million for what a Times spokeswoman described as "estate-planning purposes." The editors of Page Six have their wits about them; they noted the irony that the Times, as they put it, "is always for higher taxes." Sure enough, the Times editorialized on April 15, 2005, that "The only thing driving the push for repealing the estate tax is ideology. It sure isn't sound tax policy." We look forward to reading an editorial in the Times about what's "sound" in a tax law that drives a man to sell the apartment he lives in to his wife just to minimize taxes.

Apparently Pinch is a hypocrite as well as a traitor, a moonbat and a contemptible weenie. Pardon the redundancy.

British Socialized Medicine Rakes in Surplus While Cutting Services

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:23 AM

Socialized medicine may be a nightmare for patients, but it offers immense benefits to government bureaucracy, granting it not only power of life and death over citizens, but also a lucrative revenue stream. Even Britain's dysfunctional NHS is forecast to rake in a £1.8 billion surplus, thanks to cutting back on services and refusing to fund vital treatments.

Michael Summers, of the Patients’ Association, said: "When wards are closing and hospitals are cutting back on cleaning and nursing staff up and down the country, it is quite astonishing that they are generating such a huge surplus."
Last month a former Second World War airman, Jack Tagg, was told by his local primary care trust in Torbay, Devon, that he could not be given drug treatment for age-related macular degeneration because it was too expensive. The trust, which later relented but only on a technicality, is heading for a £7.8 million surplus, 3.5 per cent of turnover, this year.

Imagine if a company could charge whatever it liked for a product, without even having to provide the product, secure in the knowledge that you have to pay for it anyway or you'll go to jail. Try to top that for a lucrative business model. No wonder Democrats want to impose socialized medicine on the USA.

Underage Moonbats Wallow in Guilt over Slave Trade

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:56 AM

Filmmaker Michael Lienau and family, of Camano Island (near Seattle), have joined the Lifeline Expedition, an English organization dedicated to wallowing theatrically in neurotic guilt over the past practice of slavery. The irony that it was the British Navy that ended the international slave trade — which had existed throughout human history — more than a century ago is unlikely to have penetrated the cocoon of cultural self-hatred that insulates such moonbats from contemporary reality.

The Lienaus travel the world, abasing themselves with abject apologies for their nonexistent role in an industry that ceased to exist generations before they were born:

"I want to apologize on behalf of the United States for the enslavement of African children," Jacob Lienau said in 2006, when he was just 14 years old, in a stadium in Gambia.
"We're apologizing for the legacy of the slave trade, particularly where Christians were involved," Shari Lienau, mother of nine children, said at a Martin Luther King Jr. Day march in Everett that same year.
"I wanted to say I was sorry," Anna Lienau said two years ago, when she was 12 years old and saving money to travel to Africa to apologize.

Progressives must find it moving to see little kids brainwashed into hating themselves over the sins of remote ancestors. No doubt they'll grow up to pull the lever for Democrats, eyes blurry with tears of poignant sanctimony, even knowing that they are essentially pulling the lever to flush their own country down the toilet.

Weather Channel Founder John Coleman Proposes Suing Al Gore for Fraud

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:13 AM

John Coleman is not pleased with the moonbatty direction taken by the Weather Channel, which he founded in 1982:

The Weather Channel had great promise, and that's all gone now because they've made every mistake in the book on what they've done and how they've done it and it's very sad. […] Let's hope the new owners can recapture the vision and stop […] telling us what to think and start giving us useful weather information.

An example of the Weather Channel's heavy-handed moonbattery would be Heidi Cullen's demand that weather people who won't drink the global warming Kool-Aid be decertified by the American Meteorological Society.

Coleman has been fed to the teeth with the global warming hoax, and proposes we fight it by suing carbon credit hucksters for fraud:

[I] have a feeling this is the opening. If the lawyers will take the case — sue the people who sell carbon credits. That includes Al Gore. That lawsuit would get so much publicity, so much media attention. And as the experts went to the media stand to testify, I feel like that could become the vehicle to finally put some light on the fraud of global warming.

Lord Christopher Monckton, no friend of government thugs who exploit the global warming hoax, agrees that courts can be used to tear down this preposterous sham before it causes any more damage. In light of our Supreme Court's demented decision to categorize CO2 — i.e., our very breath — as a pollutant, I'm not so sure.

Rolling Stone Still Hasn't Graduated from Junior High

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:01 AM

The popularity of Barack Obamination's shallow leftist politics among those barely old enough to vote is unsurprising in light of the rhetoric seeping from the tween media. Check out what perpetually adolescent Rolling Stone has to say about conservatives:

All they have left to offer is this sad, dwindling, knee-jerk patriotism, a promise to keep selling world politics as a McHale's Navy rerun to a Middle America that wants nothing to do with realizing the world has changed since 1946. […] From the battering that McCain is taking lately from the likes of Limbaugh and skanky bitch-whore Ann Coulter, who vowed to campaign for Hillary if McCain gets the nomination, one wouldn't know that most of his supposed crimes were actually based on conservative principles.

Skanky bitch-whore. No doubt Rolling Stone readers regard this as sophisticated analysis, richly imbued with the nuance shunned by simplistic conservatives.

Following a risible attempt to characterize opposition to both tax cuts and border security as conservative positions, author Matt Taibbi resumes:

McCain has repeatedly displayed an inability to connect with the bloodthirsty, emotional imperatives of the Limbaugh-Hannity line of thinking, in which all nuance and pragmatism must be dismissed in favor of an all-out crush-the-demon position. […] This arrogant refusal to be a craven imbecile is what makes McCain suspect in the eyes of Limbaugh and Coulter, who are terrified at the prospect of a Republican president uninterested in book burnings.

But lest you think this moonbat is backhandedly endorsing McCain…

McCain may be even more crazy than the Republican mainstream on the issue that matters most of all: the war in Iraq and war in general. My guess is that Republican voters are not going to mind that McCain's candidacy might drive a stake through the heart of the weenie fascism of Rush and Hannity, once they figure out that the candidate is a solid bet to deliver them World War III.

We know this because

McCain's entire career has been dedicated to the idea that America must always have the right to solve its problems by force.

Enlightened liberals know that we do not have the right to resolve problems by force. Next time Muslims fly our planes full of our people into our skyscrapers full of more of our people, President Barack Hussein Obama will wisely send a nuanced letter of complaint to the United Nations and call it a day.

Eat a Whale for Gaia

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:12 PM

Here's a dilemma for moonbats: What would you rather do, save the whales, or save the planet?

Eat a whale and save the planet, a Norwegian pro-whaling lobby said on Monday of a study showing that harpooning the giant mammals is less damaging to the climate than farming livestock. […] The survey, focused on whale boats' fuel use, showed that a kilo (2.2 lbs) of whale meat represented just 1.9 kilo (4.2 lbs) of greenhouse gases against 15.8 for beef, 6.4 for pork and 4.6 for chicken.
"Basically it turns out that the best thing you can do for the planet is to eat whale meat compared to other types of meat," said Rune Froevik of the High North Alliance, which represents the interests of coastal communities in the Arctic.

On the other hand, greenhouse gas emissions are actually harmless. But if moonbats really think otherwise, they ought to support more whaling.

New York Times Credit Rating Approaching Junk Status

Posted by Dave Blount at 1:34 PM

It looks like sacrificing even the semblance of professionalism for the sake of moonbat ideology hasn't been a winning strategy for the New York Times:

The New York Times Co.'s continued struggles with declining advertising revenue prompted Standard & Poor's to caution Friday that it is inching closer to cutting the company's debt ratings.
S&P said it placed all of the Times' ratings, including its key long-term corporate credit rating, on CreditWatch with negative implications. In plain English, that means the rating agency is leaning heavily toward a downgrade unless current financial trends at the company improve.
S&P currently assigns the Times a long-term corporate credit rating of BBB. A one-notch downgrade would bring the rating down to BBB-. But in a research note Friday, S&P credit analyst Emile Courtney warned that a possible downgrade "may not be limited to one notch."
That would drop the Times' long-term rating to BB+ or worse, which would leave it at sub-investment grade, or junk.

Junk status would bring the Times' credit rating in line with its journalistic standards under Publisher Pinch Sulzberger, the left-wing weenie who has been steering the formerly respected paper toward bankruptcy in the name of moonbattery.

Barack Obama Already Screwing Up Relations with Canada

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:47 AM

There could be drawbacks to putting an adolescent in charge of American foreign policy, even if he does inspire moonbats with Hope for Change. Barack Hussein Obama has been pandering to rustbelt audiences in Ohio by advocating protectionism, while his staff whispers to our #1 trade partner Canada that he doesn't really mean it. Unlike most Democrats, Canada has started to wonder just what B.O. really does mean, if anything.

Obambi's handlers tried claiming they never told Canadians he wasn't sincere about strangling free trade. However, our northern neighbors produced documentation to the contrary. A memo from the meeting includes this tribute to Obama's sincerity:

Noting anxiety among many U.S. domestic audiences about the U.S. economic outlook, [Obama advisor Austan] Goolsbee candidly acknowledged the protectionist sentiment that has emerged, particularly in the Midwest, during the primary campaign. He cautioned that this messaging should not be taken out of context and should be viewed as more about political positioning than a clear articulation of policy plans.

In this context, "political positioning" means "pandering to voters with deliberate lies." The Obama folks have now gone to Plan B, pretending their guy was misunderstood. Thomas Lifson comments on the dustup:

Let's face facts: if Team Obama is capable of screwing up relations with the country most similar to us, the country that knows us best, and that has the biggest stake in the health of our economy and continuing American good will, imagine what kind of havoc would be created when dealing with the likes of the Russians, the Chinese, the Syrians, or the Palestinians.

Judging by their annoyance, it's doubtful the Canadians misunderstand B.O. But he'd better hope the American public does, or he'll never get elected.

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:16 AM

Remember Robert Kosilek, the convicted wife-murderer who successfully sued for expensive medical treatments to help him pretend he's a woman? He's fallen upon hard times:

A killer who sued to have a sex change claims her [sic] body is becoming more masculine again because she's [sic] being denied treatment in prison as she [sic] awaits a ruling in her [sic] bid for the surgery. Michelle Kosilek, formerly known as Robert, said that for months she [sic] has not been allowed to have court-approved hair-removal treatment or access to a specialist to discuss her [sic] testosterone levels.
"My breasts have shrunk, genitals have regained previous size and function, facial hair is thicker and scalp hair is thinner, all related to an elevated testosterone level," Kosilek said in a handwritten letter submitted to the court recently.

The heart bleeds.

Kosilek sued on the grounds that not forcing taxpayers to indulge him in his freakish fantasies would constitute cruel and unusual punishment. In 2002, U.S. District Judge Mark Wolf ruled that taxpayers owe the murderer hormone treatments, psychotherapy and laser hair removal. But Kosilek keeps suing because he won't stop feeling glum until he has a choppadickoffomy procedure. The judge still hasn't ruled on whether he'll get it.

The surgery would cost about $20,000. So far the corrections department has spent over $52,000 on experts to yap about it in court.

Enough rope to put Kosilek out of his misery and avenge his dead wife would cost about $10.

The old ways were often better.

Socialized Medicine Sends Canadians over the Border for Care

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:32 AM

Lucky thing for Canadians they have a country right next door that hasn't yet succumbed to socialized medicine:

More than 400 Canadians in the full throes of a heart attack or other cardiac emergency have been sent to the United States because no hospital can provide the lifesaving care they require here. […] At least 188 neurosurgery patients and 421 emergency cardiac patients have been sent to the United States from Ontario since the 2003-2004 fiscal year to Feb. 21 this year. Add to that 25 women with high-risk pregnancies sent south of the border in 2007.

This is just from Ontario. British Columbia has sent 75 pregnant women or newborns over the border in the last year.

Unfortunately, when Democrats manage to impose socialized medicine here, Canadians will no longer have a place to go to receive adequate medical care. Neither will Americans.

Airstrip One Cracks Down on Second Homes

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:17 AM

In the latest egregious expansion of bureaucratic power, the U.K.'s Gordon Brown is now clamping down on the ownership of second homes:

An inquiry commissioned by Gordon Brown will recommend local authorities have the power to prevent outsiders buying property they do not intend to make their main residence. […] They would have to win planning permission to change the house from fully occupied to a second home and could be refused by the council. The inquiry is also considering banning outsiders from buying newly built homes in such areas.
The move is likely to reduce the supply of houses in counties such as Cornwall, Devon and Norfolk available for use as second homes and push up their price.
There are concerns it could lead to "snooping" by council officials investigating how homes are used.

Britain certainly can't have private citizens using their own property as they see fit. While they're snooping, the bureauweenies should be sure to check that the garbage is being recycled properly.

Cute Knut Turns into Polar Bear

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:49 AM

Remember Cute Knut, the polar bear cub animal rights kooks wanted to kill? The funniest thing is happening to him: he's metamorphosing from a cuddly toy into a real live polar bear, the kind that will hunt down people to kill and eat. Good thing this glass is strong enough to withstand a mortar attack:


The global warming cult wants us to dread nice weather on the grounds that it would supposedly be inconvenient for these ferocious man-eating beasts in a godforsaken wasteland. No wonder the whole farce is starting to fizzle, despite all the propaganda the media has pumped out on its behalf.

B.O., the Self-Esteem Candidate

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:30 AM

How is it possible that so many moonbats could get so excited over Barack Hussein Obama, who quite obviously does not have the qualifications to be President? One theory is that he is the first candidate to represent the self-esteem generation:

Obama has tapped into is the first generation educated in schools focused on "self-esteem." Now, the products of self-esteem education have come of political age in substantial numbers, perhaps with profound implications for this and future elections.
For the past two decades, America's educational establishment has stressed the inculcation of self-esteem as the supreme educational goal. Self-respect — the product of struggle and achievement — is out; self-esteem — the entitlement to feel great self-worth regardless of actual accomplishment — is in.

Students are no longer required to learn, only to feel good about themselves. As SAT scores nosedive, grade averages soar. Reality is still out there, waiting to pounce on them when they leave school…

But not in Obama-world. That is a world of Hope; of Action; of Change You Can Believe In; of Yes We Can; of Coming Together; of Moving Forward Into the Future, and of other banalities that can mean absolutely anything to anyone. "I am asking you to take a chance on your own aspirations." It's all about us and our good feelings of youth and unity. Nothing so difficult as spelling out tough policy choices or arguing about a particular program's merits or ramifications is involved.
Why, that might instigate analysis, or arguments about right or wrong answers, which would divide us; that would interfere with our focus on how good we feel about ourselves and the restoration of the soft, fuzzy future which once belonged to us.

Obama Nation is the land where you can stay in school forever, a liberal school where 2+2=5 if that's what makes you feel good, and blacks built the pyramids if they feel entitled to have built them. You could hardly expect the President of Obama Nation to have actually earned his position — that would be so yesterday.

And as President, I will let you stay in school the rest of your lives.

BBC Spends Fortune on Ethnic Recruiting

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:00 AM

It's a good thing for the BBC that it's financed by a coercive license fee. Otherwise it would be unlikely to stay solvent doing business like this:

The BBC has sparked controversy by spending £750,000 of licence fee cash on coaching ethnic minority staff into top jobs. […T]he new mentoring scheme has been condemned as "politically correct" positive discrimination which will create resentment amongst staff. They are also bemused how the corporation can afford to spend £750,000 on the three year scheme when it is axing up to 1,800 jobs.
BBC plans will see half of the 30 places a year on the new scheme ring-fenced for staff from ethnic backgrounds. A further six each year will be handed to disabled applicants, with nine places remaining annually open to people from any background.

Nine people can be ethnic English and not crippled and still get a promotion. How very open-minded of the Beeb, whose workforce was described by former director general Greg Dyke as "hideously white."

If you think the BBC has a pro-Islam, anti-West slant now, wait until it manages to weed non-Muslims out of management positions in order to be "diverse."

Recyclable Garbage Secretly Dumped with the Rest

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:32 AM

Anyone surprised by this?

Hundreds of thousands of tons of material dutifully put out for recycling is being secretly dumped in landfill sites by councils in Britain.
Shocking new figures reveal that while some householders face stiff fines for breaching recycling laws, many councils are simply dumping huge quantities of the paper, glass and plastic they collect. […]
This is likely to be the tip of the iceberg as almost half of all councils did not release figures, including major authorities such as Birmingham, Bradford, Hull and Warwickshire.

The point of recycling is for moonbats to feel self-righteous and for bureaucrats to establish hegemony over our household routines. Actually recycling the garbage probably isn't cost-effective — not that cost-effectiveness is a concern when governments crusade on behalf of the environment.

Gloria Steinem: Vote for the Clintons, Redeem the Gynocide

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:01 PM

Despite Bill Clinton's appalling treatment of women — which probably includes rape — aging feminist icon Gloria Steinem wants him back in the White House. She supports his would-be co-president Shrillary on the grounds that electing her would be "redemption for the gynocide."

Gynocide means mass killing of women. Like most moonbats, Gloria Steinem lives in a grim fantasy world.

Slick Willie has flaws, even for a militant feminist. Though Steinem doesn't seem to have a problem with him exploiting powerful positions to impose himself on women sexually, she has denounced him for letting Republicans drag him along on the welfare reform that was so phenomenally successful of getting people off handouts and into jobs.

John McCain's courage and sacrifice on behalf of his country aren't enough to impress Ms. Steinem. He was repeatedly tortured during the 5 1/2 years he was held by Vietnamese communists. When offered release in a propaganda ploy, he refused. Sneers Steinem:

I mean, hello? This is supposed to be a qualification to be president? I don't think so.

Apparently courage, resolve, loyalty, patriotism and leadership are attributes no longer considered relevant to the highest office. Disagreeable as McCain's RINO politics often are, he inhabits a higher plane of existence than the Clintons and their supporters — so much higher that grubs like Gloria Steinem can't even grasp why she ought to respect him.

As for Barack Hussein Obama — Steinem wants him in the White House after the Clintons have another 8 years.

Feminazi Gloria Steinem a long, long time ago.

Notre Dame Honors Martin Sheen for His Moonbattery

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:33 PM

The University of Notre Dame has granted Tinseltown activist Martin Sheen with a medal to honor his lifelong commitment to moonbattery. A few of the accomplishments the educrats in South Bend saw fit to exalt:

  • Appeared in many left-wing films like Apocalypse Now, JFK, The American President, etc.
  • Terrified America by playing the President in the NBC series The Left Wing.
  • Called Bill Clinton "probably the brightest President of the 20th century."
  • Said President Bush "is like a bad comic working the crowd, a moron."
  • Got himself arrested numerous times for his infantile behavior at left-wing demonstrations.
  • Signed the wacky Not in Our Name statement, denouncing attempts to defend America from Islamic terrorism and accusing the USA of posing the most "grave dangers to the people of the world."
  • Participated in protests sponsored by hard-core Stalinists (International ANSWER).
  • Joined ultra-radical environmentalist cults like Rainforest Action Network and Earth Island Institute.
  • Loudly sided with Marxist Sandinistas against the USA.

Sheen has also denounced America as "a dysfunctional society." Here's his take on the removal of genocidal dictator Saddam Hussein from power:

By some demented form of logic, the men, women and children of Iraq are relegated to "collateral damage" as the dogs of war slouch toward Baghdad.

Those slouching dogs of war are the American troops who defend Sheen's right to be a jackass, and Notre Dame's right to award him medals for it. Fortunately they also defend our right to struggle against the sickness called moonbattery, which has turned both Hollywood and academia against America.

If only he kept his mouth taped more often.

Google Censors Criticism of Radical Islam

Posted by Dave Blount at 2:04 PM

As AP puts the squeeze on bloggers who dare challenge the establishment media, the dhimmi moonbats running Google have agreed to censor on behalf of radical Islam:

YouTube has agreed to scrub material critical of radical Islam after Pakistan's religious police crashed the popular site in protest. […] The offending video was a trailer for a Dutch documentary set for release next month that shows in detail how Islamic doctrine is an "inspiration for intolerance, murder and terror."

YouTube is part of Google's rapidly metastasizing information empire. Again we see that the mainstream media lies primarily not by what it says, but by what it avoids saying — or in the case of Google, what it prevents others from saying.

Employing cyberterrorism, the Pakistani government diverted YouTube traffic in a successful attempt to bully Google dhimmis into complying with its censorship demands.

Before long, those who are not part of the media establishment will be back to self-publishing on Xerox machines, while 99.99% of the public soaks up carefully filtered, pro-terrorist lies.

MSM Lawyers Up to Silence Critics

Posted by Dave Blount at 1:43 PM

When it comes to justice, you tend to get what you can afford to pay for, and the mainstream media has very deep pockets. The brazenly propagandistic Associated Press has exploited this sad fact, closing down by hauling it into court for posting copyrighted images.

The fair usage rules by which blogs put up images copyrighted by the establishment media apply particularly clearly in the case of, which is devoted to critiquing deceptive photographs used by the AP et al. to lead us around by the nose.

The site is going offline and is probably done for. How many bloggers can outspend the AP on lawyers? Unless some very crucial pro bono work is done, this could be the beginning of the end for the blogosphere — and for the free flow of information in general.

All-powerful Propagandists.

Global Warming Caused Space Shuttle Columbia to Fall Apart

The list of bad things not caused by the nonexistent climate change crisis continues to shrink, with ABC News suggesting that Space Shuttle Columbia may have come apart due to luminescent ice clouds caused by global warming. Tune in next week to hear how carbon emissions sank the Titanic and caused the Chicago fire of 1871.

Marion Cotillard Shows What It Takes to Win an Oscar

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:14 AM

For an up-and-coming actress, winning an Oscar is the key to Tinseltown. It can mean the difference between dwelling among royalty in $zillion mansions, and being forced to give up on stardom and do something constructive for a living. To win, a certain mentality is required. For example, few could say whether Marion Cotillard is good at acting, because hardly anyone saw the obscure French movie she got her Oscar for. But she certainly has a gift for spewing moonbattery.

Here she is explaining how she knows it was Americans, not Muslim terrorists, who destroyed the World Trade Center, killing thousands:

It was a money-sucker because they were finished, it seems to me, by 1973, and to re-cable all that, to bring up-to-date all the technology and everything, it was a lot more expensive, that work, than destroying them.

She also suggests we staged the 1969 moon landings. Unsurprisingly, Cotillard is an environmental activist who used to be a spokeswoman for Greenpeace.

Having been rewarded with an Oscar, she's all but guaranteed a life of lavish riches and worship by legions of bovine fools. But it's no biggie for Ms. Cotillard, who considers herself above "Anglo-Saxon ambition."
