Overweight Americans First Up for Envirogenocide

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:32 PM

Environmentalists frequently scream that there are too many people on the planet, implying some will have to go. We already know who goes last (environmentalists), but who goes first? LiveScience has the answer: overweight Americans.

[I]n the United States, obesity is at an all-time high; two-thirds of adults in the Land of Plenty are overweight or obese. Obesity is perhaps the ultimate symbol of resource consumption; it's visible proof that overweight people already has [sic] more than they need — and take more anyway. […] Overweight people create more air pollution than thin people do. It's simple physics: Extra pounds translate into extra fuel in automobiles and airplanes. Extra fuel means increased energy usage, oil drilling, and air pollution.

Plus you can get more soap and lampshades out of overweight people.

Leftist Bigot Mark Morford Craps in Hand, Flings It at Laura Bush

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:09 PM

As noted previously, moonbat columnist Mark Morford is the quintessential bigot. Here's the title of his latest disgorgement:

Laura Bush, docile doormat
Behold, the ideal Republican wife: Prim, sexless, nearly useless, lets the men do the real thinkin'. Hot!

She's not a gaudy, loud-mouthed ball-breaker like Shrillary or Tuh-reeza Heinz-Kerry, so she must be a pitiful victim of the heteronormative patriarchy. For being a lady, Laura Bush is denounced as "docile, prudish," a "limp wallflower" with a "dull-as-dishwater personality" — "the very epitome of nice, meek, domestic Republican female."

That's what women are like, out there in non-moonbat country. The bigotry gets thicker. Here's his sneering characterization of the traditional family:

It's not exactly a crime to simply want to be a good mother and housewife (noble and under-respected callings, both), to not seek the spotlight and not hunger for power and influence. And besides, meek, shy girls who want nothing more than to marry the male equivalent of a tub of spackling paste at age 22 and never think for themselves and never inspire anyone to do anything need role models, too.

As a writer for the San Francisco Comical, Morford can make a living finger-painting insulting caricatures of the decent, normal people he imagines himself to be in a position to despite. This helps explain why revelations of Obama's bigotry aren't hurting him much with his base.

Global Warming Hoaxers Discover Natural Variations

Posted by Dave Blount at 1:26 PM

Hoaxers are having to spin like whirling dervishes to keep the global warming farce alive in the face of cooling temperatures. Now we're asked to believe that global warming is real, but might not result in warmer temperatures until 2015 due to "natural variations."

There's no reason to think that natural variations don't account for all climate change, which is no more a problem than the fact that the weather yesterday was different from the weather today. But telling us that isn't going to generate any research grants, or justify any tax hikes or expansion of government control.

Profiles in Countermoonbattery: Russell Pearce

Posted by Dave Blount at 12:24 PM

Kudos to Arizona State Rep. Russell Pearce (R-Mesa), who is attempting to do something about the appalling anti-American propaganda taught on our dime in public schools. He's proposed a measure that would bar teachings hostile to democracy and Western civilization from public schools, and prohibit race-based hate groups like Antonio Villaraigosa's MEChA from operating on state university campuses.

The measure is in part a response to the outrageous situation in Tucson, where students are taught revolutionary moonbattery in classrooms festooned with portraits of our country's worst enemies.

Naturally liberals are aghast that anyone would challenge their taxpayer-financed brainwashing efforts. Rep. Pete Rios (D-Hayden) whimpered about the alleged chilling effect of schools having some of their funding withheld if they openly advocate the destruction of American civilization.

Religion, Family, and Conservative Values Cause Global Warming

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:46 AM

Religion, the traditional family, and refraining from killing your own children result in the ultimate wrong from the environmentalist point of view: human reproduction. The more humans there are, the more CO2 they will emit. According to moonbat theology, CO2 controls the weather. Therefore atheism, gay marriage, and abortion will save the polar bears, even if they don't need saving.

Don Feder explains it all in an excellent piece. A highlight:

Global Warming is the left's perfect storm — a force to demolish faith, family and freedom. There's no area of our lives that can't be invaded — taxed, controlled, regulated or obliterated — in the name of serving and protecting the planet.

The liberal agenda is so soul-chillingly evil that virtually no one would support it if it were presented openly. This is why Obama won't say anything more explicit than "hope" and "change" — and why the environmental movement is being employed as a Trojan Horse.

Al Franken Agrees to Cough Up $70,000 in Back Taxes

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:48 AM

Liberals are always generous with your money, but often stingy with their own. Failed Air America demagogue and current Senate candidate for Minnesota Al Franken in no exception. At least now that the noose has closed around his neck, he's agreed to cough up $70,000 in back taxes dating to 2003.

Franken whines that it's his accountant's fault for not telling him that even liberal elitists have to pay taxes. This hero of the working man also has to pay a $25,000 fine for illegally failing to carry workman's comp for his employees.

Looks like Al needs to come up with some cash. Maybe he could find a nice charity to rob.

Reverend Wrong Goes Overboard

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:03 PM

So Obama has finally acknowledged the necessity of throwing his spiritual mentor overboard.

Whatever happened to this:

What I value most about Pastor Wright is not his day-to-day political advice. He's much more of a sounding board for me to make sure that I am speaking as truthfully about what I believe as possible and that I'm not losing myself in some of the hype and hoopla and stress that's involved in national politics.

…and this:

[Jeremiah Wright is a] friend and a great leader, not just in Chicago but across the country.

…and this:

I can no more disown him [Wright] than I can disown the black community. I can no more disown him 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.

Then again, if he could toss the grandmother who raised him down the stairs by denouncing her as a racist, it couldn't be too hard to stick a knife in his "sounding board."

O'Bigot had Wright on his campaign staff until the "God Damn America" videos came to light. Even after that, he refused to condemn him. Yet after Wright proved at the National Press Club yesterday that he's too crazy and arrogant to lay low until after the election, it became clear that the loose cannon had to go over the gunwale.

We are now asked to believe that in the course of their close 20-year relationship, Obama was unaware of the deafeningly and relentlessly expressed opinions of the demagogue who recruited him into the depraved cult of black liberation theology. Apparently he thinks we're not only bitter, but retarded.

New York Times Stock Now One Notch Above Junk Status

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:13 PM

Looks like moonbattery doesn't pay:

Credit-ratings agency Standard & Poor's Ratings Services on Tuesday cut its long-term rating on newspaper publisher The New York Times Co., as its advertising revenue continues to fall.
S&P cut its corporate credit rating and senior unsecured debt rating to "BBB-" from "BBB."
"BBB-" is one notch above "junk bond" status. The ratings were removed from CreditWatch, but the outlook is negative, meaning another downgrade could occur.

No wonder liberals think their propaganda should be financed by taxpayers. The free market isn't supporting it.

BBC Fumbles Toward an Accurate Thought

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:00 PM

Amazing. Buried in with the typical condescending obtuseness and anti-gun hysteria, a BBC piece on guns in America includes this:

Wait till you get to London Texas, or Glasgow Montana, or Oxford Mississippi or Virgin Utah, for that matter, where every household is required by local ordinance to possess a gun.
Folks will have guns in all of these places and if you break into their homes they will probably kill you.
They will occasionally kill each other in anger or by mistake, but you never feel as unsafe as you can feel in south London.
It is a paradox. Along with the guns there is a tranquillity and civility about American life of which most British people can only dream.

One day the Beeb might even come to understand that it isn't a paradox.

Government Confiscates Child over Lemonade Mix-up

Posted by Dave Blount at 4:06 PM

One of the most frightening powers of the Nanny State is its ability to confiscate children on a whim.

Christopher Ratte doesn't watch much TV. When he ordered lemonade for his 7-year-old son Leo at a Detroit Tigers game, he didn't realize the Mike's Hard Lemonade he received was 5% alcohol. No problem: according to a blood test, Leo didn't drink any anyway.

But why was there a blood test? Because the authorities kidnapped Leo over the incident, rushing him to the hospital in an ambulance. After two days they gave him back to his mother — on the condition that Ratte move out of the house. It was a week before Ratte was allowed back in his own home.

Don Duquette, a U-M law professor who directs the university's Child Advocacy Law Clinic, represented Ratte and his wife. He notes sardonically that the most remarkable thing about the couple's case may be the relative speed with which they were reunited with Leo.

Meanwhile the media screams that we need more government, and presidential candidates ominously promise to deliver it.

Global Warming Causes AIDS

Posted by Dave Blount at 3:11 PM

Did you think AIDS is spread by homosexual depravity and intravenous drug fiends? Wrong! It's spread by global warming:

A leading professor of health and human rights, Daniel Tarantola, has cautioned that global warming will indirectly make citizens of developing countries even more vulnerable to death and severe ill health from HIV/AIDS.
"It was clear soon after the emergence of the HIV epidemic that discrimination, gender inequality and lack of access to essential services have made some populations more vulnerable than others,'' said Prof Tarantola, of the University of NSW.
Those problems had not gone away, he said, and today extra threats were lurking on the horizon "as the global economic situation deteriorates, food scarcity worsens and climate change begins to affect those who were already dependent on survival economies''.
"Climate change will trigger a chain of events which is likely to increase the stress on society and result in higher vulnerability to diseases including HIV,'' said Prof Tarantola[…]

You can throw your toothbrush away. They'll soon find that global warming is also responsible for halitosis and tooth decay.

Nanny State Tax Fiends Go After Soda

Posted by Dave Blount at 3:06 PM

As no one will be surprised to hear, punitive taxes on cigarettes were only the beginning:

Back when cigarette tax increases were justified by politicians on the grounds of paternalism (even though they really just wanted more money), critics argued that the same argument could be applied to other unhealthy activities and products like candy bars or soft drinks. But such criticisms were dismissed as being scare tactics and unrealistic. But now the nannies at groups like the totalitarian Center for the Science in the Public Interest are having their voices heard in the push towards even more state control over our lives (largely through tax policy), much like the American Cancer Society has done over the past two decades on cigarette taxes. Of course, all of this is in the name of public health. (You as an adult aren't smart enough to make up your own mind about what to drink.)
Policymakers in Maine are the latest to succumb to this pressure of raising money by targeting specific products. This time it goes beyond the usual suspects of cigarettes and alcohol. If you drink soda, you're now going to pay as much as 22 cents more for a 2-liter bottle. Yes, 22 cents more on that 2-liter bottle of Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Dr. Pepper, or even generic Sam's Choice Cola (assuming Wal-Marts are allowed in Maine).

At least it's good news for store owners in neighboring New Hampshire, who will be seeing a sharp rise in out-of-state business.

A Multicultural Celebration of Different Social Norms on the Streets of Britainistan

David Proctor, 16, made the mistake of asking a young "Asian" for directions in Bradford, England. The Pakistani colonist whistled over two friends and together they stripped David naked, beat him to a pulp, sicced dogs on him, stole his clothes and belongings, and left him bleeding and naked.

The kid already suffered from asthma. Now he has a broken nose, fractured cheekbone, broken teeth, and bitten ear.

A nurse attending to him confirmed that such incidents occur often in the area. But police are responding by trying to convince everyone that the crime was highly unusual. No doubt drawing attention to these occurrences is racist.

San Francisco Bureaucrats Throw Greed into Overdrive

Posted by Dave Blount at 12:43 PM

It takes serious money to fund all those gay pride parades and Fulsome Street public sex exhibits. Fortunately for San Francisco, taxpayers have lots of it. The latest confiscatory scheme: exorbitant fines if one of your recycling bins is visible from the street.

Due to the pointless recycling craze, every home gets three 32-gallon cans. If they are not kept completely out of sight, Mayor Newsom will hit you up for $100. If you have nowhere to put the cans, so much the better when it comes to raising revenue. Also, you have to have the cans off the street by 6 p.m. on collection day. If you're not home from work by 6, that's great — because you'll need to work hard to pay the fines.

DNC Airs Jihadist Propaganda

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:53 AM

Where do you suppose the DNC got the footage of American troops getting blown up by an IED for this ad, which is currently on the front page at Democrats.org:

Newsmax explores one likely possibility:

The footage appears similar to film taken by jihadists who videotape IED explosions that kill American combat troops. The jihadists place the video on the internet to tout their "kill Americans" campaign success. The Army estimates that more than 6,500 jihadist Web sites promote violence against America and American troops.
Many U.S. media outlets have refused to air excerpts from such videos for several reasons — including out of respect of the servicemen and women depicted in the videos. The DNC apparently does not agree.

As Michelle Malkin suggests, maybe they got the video from their friends at CNN.

Evidence accrues that a vote for Democrats is effectively a vote for al Qaeda. No wonder they're running an otherwise unqualified candidate whose name liberals can't tell apart from Osama bin Laden.

Smoking Bans Blamed for Global Warming

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:14 AM

How's this for a double bind: Moonbat-imposed indoor smoking bans are said to exacerbate moonbats' beloved global warming farce.

Fewer cigarettes get lit indoors in bars and restaurants because of smoking bans from California to Ireland but something else is going up in smoke from a sidewalk in central Oslo — about $100,000 a year in extra outdoor heating bills.
The heated pavement, installed at a cost of about $400,000, may be the most extreme example of an environmental side-effect of smoking bans: rocketing power use. […T]hink of all the thousands of extra gas and electricity heaters outdoors spurred by the smoking bans around the world…

If only global warming were real, soon we wouldn't need outdoor heaters. Unfortunately higher power bills are real enough. Once again we see that for every heavy-handed moonbat action, there is a reaction of unintended consequences that leaves the world worse off.

William Gray Targeted for Siding with Science against Global Warming Hoax

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:56 AM

Let this be a lesson to members of the scientific community who think truth and integrity are more important than the research grants scared up by the global warming hoax:

By pioneering the science of seasonal hurricane forecasting and teaching 70 graduate students who now populate the National Hurricane Center and other research outposts, William Gray turned a city far from the stormy seas into a hurricane research mecca.
But now the institution in Fort Collins, Colo., where he has worked for nearly half a century, has told Gray it may end its support of his seasonal forecasting.
As he enters his 25th year of predicting hurricane season activity, Colorado State University officials say handling media inquiries related to Gray's forecasting requires too much time and detracts from efforts to promote other professors' work.
But Gray, a highly visible and sometimes acerbic skeptic of climate change, says that's a "flimsy excuse" for the real motivation — a desire to push him aside because of his global warming criticism.
Among other comments, Gray has said global warming scientists are "brainwashing our children."

Other than his unwillingness to pretend he can see Emperor Gore's new clothes, there's no reason to pull the plug on Gray:

A professor of public relations at Boston University, Donald Wright, questioned why the university would want to pull back its support for Gray now, after he has published his forecasts for a quarter-century.
"It's seems peculiar that this is happening now," Wright said. "Given the national reputation that these reports have, you would think the university would want to continue to promote these forecasts."
Gray, he said, seems to deliver a lot of publicity bang for the buck. The seasonal forecasts are printed in newspapers around the country and splashed across the World Wide Web.

However, Gray's science-based hurricane predictions cannot complete with hoaxers' fantasy-based global warming predictions when it comes to extracting massive taxpayer-financed grants from the government. If he won't play along, he'll have to move along.

Ban Ki-Moonbat Demands $755 Million

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:21 AM

It's a textbook example of how the moonbat establishment works. First, they create a phony crisis out of thin air: global warming. Then they impose an extravagantly expensive solution to the imaginary problem, financed with our money: biofuels. As always, their solution causes a real problem: starvation.

Now that there's a real problem, we really need the authorities to fix it using our money. So the U.N.'s moonbat in chief has his hand out:

The immediate priority is to feed the hungry, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said, calling on the international community to provide the WFP [World Food Program] all of the $755 million in emergency funds it needs for the crisis.

What will happen to local farmers after $755 million in free food is dumped on the market? Probably they'll go out of business, creating an even greater crisis, requiring still more of our money to fix.

Outbreak of Honesty in Moonbatland

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:54 AM

Some moonbats have dropped the charade of pretending they "support the troops." Brace yourself for what they really think, without the sugary coating of polite lies. Here's the beginning of a piece by Ian Murphy:

So, 4000 rubes are dead. Cry me the Tigris. Another 30,000 have been seriously wounded. Boo fucking hoo. They got what they asked for — and cool robotic limbs, too.
Likely, just reading the above paragraph made you uncomfortable. But why?
The benevolence of America's "troops" is sacrosanct. Questioning their rectitude simply isn't done. It's the forbidden zone. We may rail against this tragic war, but our soldiers are lauded by all as saints. Why? They volunteered to partake in this savage idiocy, and for this they deserve our utmost respect? I think not.
The nearly two-thirds of us who know this war is bullshit need to stop sucking off the troops. They get enough action raping female soldiers and sodomizing Iraqi detainees.

Now if Obama could just follow Murphy's lead and take up honesty by joining his mentor Reverend Wright in a rousing rendition of God Damn America, we could all stop playing games and stand for what we stand for.

ABC Reports That Men Will Become Extinct

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:17 AM

Just as envirokooks envision a world without humans and Obama et al. envision a world without white people, feminazis like to fantasize about a world without men. Genetics professor Bryan Sykes, who encourages these morbid fantasies, has managed to draw attention to himself by declaring:

The Y chromosome is deteriorating and will, in my belief, disappear.

It's the Y chromosome that makes babies male. According to Sykes, 1% of men will have a mutation that reduces their fertility by 10% each generation. The Y chromosome cannot repair itself, so in about 125,000 years there won't be any more men.

Reverend Wrong Just Keeps Getting Scarier

One of several scary quotes from Barack Obama's spiritual mentor Jeremiah Wright's love fest with his fellow moonbats in the MSM today:

I do not in any way disagree with Dr. Cone, nor do I in any way diminish the inimitable and incomparable contributions that he has made and that he continues to make to the field of theology. Jim, incidentally, is a personal friend of mine.

Now a quote from this James Cone nut, founding father of Barack Obama's religion, black liberation theology:

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.

These people could be running the country within a year.

Even Condi Admits That Biofuels Cause Food Prices to Soar

Posted by Dave Blount at 2:02 PM

Taking a break from her evenhanded efforts to feed Israel to the Islamic crocodile, Condi Rice admits the obvious: the disastrous biofuel boondoggle is driving food prices through the stratosphere:

Setting aside farmland to produce biofuels like ethanol may be partly to blame for driving up world food prices, US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Monday.
"There has been apparently some effect, unintended consequence from the alternative fuels effort," Rice told a meeting in Washington when asked for the US government's view on skyrocketing food prices.
"Although we believe that while biofuels continue to be an extremely important piece of the alternative energy picture, obviously we want to make sure that it is not having an adverse affect," she said.

This from an administration that has gone out of its way to prop up biofuels, with the help of $billions looted from taxpayers.

Carbon Reductio ad Absurdum

Posted by Dave Blount at 1:49 PM

Both Shrillary and O'Bigot have endorsed the "80 by 50" target — that is, we should be forced to reduce our emissions of harmless CO2 by 80% by 2050. Lettuce McLame is less ambitious; he only wants a 65% reduction. Why not call for a 102% reduction by last Wednesday? Unless they really intend to make us easier to rule by destroying the country, it's all pie in the sky anyway.

Steven Hayward points out that a 80% reduction would mean limiting U.S. emissions to 1 billion metric tons. They haven't been that low since 1910, when the population was 92 million and the per capita income in current dollars was $6,000. In 2050, the population will be about 420 million, requiring per capita emissions of 2.5 tons. They weren't that low even in colonial days. The only countries that manage it are basket case hellholes like Haiti and Somalia.

As for alternative energy, France gets most of its electricity from nuclear energy, and still comes in at 6.5 metric tons. Renewable energy is about as likely as pixie dust to ever meet more than 20% of our energy needs.

Hopefully our presidential candidates are just lying through their teeth when they talk about reducing carbon emissions. Otherwise, the results will be horrific.

Despite the MSM's relentless envirowacko propaganda barrage, people would still object if bureaucrats tried to impose a Haitian standard of living on the USA overnight. That's why the targets are set a few decades in the future, so they can kill our economy gradually, raising taxes here, increasing regulation there, until bit by bit the Lilliputians are able drag down Gulliver and tie him to the ground.

Iraq War Increases American Stature in Asia

Posted by Dave Blount at 12:47 PM

Despite all the ankle-biting from moonbats who claim the world hates us for picking on poor little terror-supporting genocidal dictator Saddam Hussein, America's resolve in Iraq has increased our stature in Asia:

The US war in Iraq has strengthened its strategic position, especially in terms of key alliances, and the only way this could be reversed would be if it lost the will to continue the struggle and abandoned Iraq in defeat and disarray.
Surely the author of this sentence is on the ganja, you might say. Something a little weird in the coffee? It goes against every aspect of conventional wisdom.
But the author of this thesis, stated only marginally less boldly, is one of the US's most brilliant strategic analysts. Mike Green holds the Japan chair at Washington's Centre for Strategic and International Studies and was for several years the Asia director at the National Security Council. He is also one of America's foremost experts on Japan and northeast Asia generally.

Regardless of whether going into Iraq was wise given hindsight, it demonstrated resolve, courage, and the will to follow through on commitments — traits that are still respected in some corners of the world.

It's easier to lose respect than it is to earn it. If someone irresponsible enough to turn tail and run from Iraq ends up in the White House, we really will be in for some disdain.

According to the suit, Laswell weighed 413 pounds when he was jailed in September. Police say he and a co-defendant fatally beat and stabbed a man, then set his home on fire.

A typical Western diet is 2,000–3,000 calories a day. Laswell is getting 3,000. He also demands that meals be served hot.

Communist Ghouls Steal Girl's Brain

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:37 AM

There isn't much communists won't steal. From The Real Cuba:

The family of Beatriz Porco Calle, a young Bolivian girl who died from a rare illness while she was studying in Cuba, denounced that the Cuban government removed her brain and several internal organs before shipping the body back to Bolivia.
Local authorities told Bolivian newspaper Los Tiempos that they are investigating the case.
Sofia Porco Calle, a sister of the victim, told Los Tiempos that the Cuban Embassy in Bolivia notified the relatives that the girl had died, and told them that her body was going to be shipped back to Bolivia.
Sofia held a news conference where she said that all the other Bolivian students who were part of her sister's group, returned on the same flight that carried her sister's body back to her native country.
"I felt very bad, all the students were embracing their relatives but I received a coffin with my sister in it," she said.
The woman told the newspaper that several Cuban officials who came on the same flight wanted to take the body of her sister to another city to conduct an autopsy, but the family intervened and didn't allow the body to be moved.
"The autopsy was performed at the Hospital de Clinicas. My little sister's body didn't have any organs, teeth, eyes, it was without her tongue. There was a sponge in place of her brain and more sponges in her stomach," the woman said during the press conference.
The most incredible part of the story is that Cuban officials told the relatives of the dead student, that the deal that they signed with the Bolivian government says that those students who die while in Cuba will be sent back without their organs.
Is the Cuban regime selling human organs, or don't they want to tell the cause of death of the young girl? You decide.

From each corpse according to its ability, to each apparatchik according to his greed. This could be Bolivia's reward for letting leftist thug Evil Morales drag it into bed with wicked communist regimes.

Boston Machete Ban

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:48 AM

Amazingly enough, Boston is still finding new things to ban:

In the aftermath of an eruption of machete attacks across the Bay State, a Boston city councilor is proposing a ban on carrying the weapons in the Hub. […] Boston has an ordinance that prohibits people from carrying a blade longer than 2 inches. [Councilor Chuck] Turner's proposal, to be presented Wednesday, will update that ordinance to include machetes.

At first I was surprised that in Massachusetts, machetes have blades less than two inches long. Then I remembered that John "Botched Joke" Kerry and Chappaquiddick Ted Kennedy pass for Senators there.

U.N. Caught Dealing Arms, Smuggling

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:17 AM

If it's the wrong thing to do, you can count on the righteous globalists at the United Nations to do it. The latest:

The UN has covered up claims that its troops in Democratic Republic of Congo gave arms to militias and smuggled gold and ivory, the BBC has learned.

The U.N. is supposedly there to disarm warring factions, not to sell them guns. But any activity that keeps the blue helmet brigade too busy to rape children ought to be encouraged.

Having Lice Is Now Art

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:05 PM

Now all moonbats can be artists — all they need is their characteristic lousy hygiene:

Seven young artists from Berlin are trying to stretch the boundaries of art by living in an Israeli museum for three weeks with lice in their hair.

During the Holocaust, German propaganda referred to Jews as parasites. But lest you think this "artwork" is in bad taste, artist Vincent Grunwald explains its true meaning:

The idea is that we live in the museum as their guests, and at the same time we are hosting lice on our heads.

Deep stuff, huh? You probably need a degree in art appreciation to grasp the full import in all its profundity.

The next exhibit will probably feature Sheryl Crow after she's gone awhile without using more than one square of toilet paper. Bring a clothespin for your nose.

Handgun Ban Does Nothing to Lessen Violence in Chicago

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:41 PM

It turns out suspending the Second Amendment hasn't turned out too well in Chicago:

Chicago outlawed handgun sales in 1981. In the past week, there have been 40 shootings.

Unfortunately Barack Obama — a product of the Chicago's leftist political milieu — is unlikely to learn much from this. He wouldn't want any bitter, law-abiding citizens clinging to their guns when only criminals are supposed to have them.

Fallujah per Wikipedia

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:21 PM

In case you're ever tempted to rely on Wikipedia for information, this is what it has to say about American forces clearing terrorists out of Fallujah:

During the Second Battle of Fallujah, US forces cut off water and electricity to the city of 600,000 people. US forces used Chemical weapons against people of Fallujah. US air strikes have destroyed hospitals and medical centres. The US took over the Fallujah General Hospital and converted to a military hospital, thus denying the citizens of Fallujah any health care service. On 09 November 2004, US warplanes attacked the Nazzal Emergency Hospital in the centre of the city and completely destroyed it. Thirty-five patients were killed, including five children under the ages of 10 years. According to Amnesty International, "20 Iraqi medical staff [doctors and nurses] and dozens of other civilians were killed when a missile hit a Fallujah clinic on 09 November 2004". The air strike also destroyed the hospital medical supplies warehouse.
As of today, the exact number of civilians killed by the US assault on Fallujah is not known. According to the Allawi's government, more than 100,000 Iraqis have been killed and over 200,000 wounded and 200,000 were fled from the city. US forces used internationally banned weapons such as napalm and poison gas, phosphorous weapons and jet fuel, which makes the human body melt, to attack the city, given the high rate of civilian casualties.
Napalm and other chemical weapons were used heavily in the Jolan district of Fallujah. a district inhabited by half the inhabiters of the city.
The Iraqi Red Crescent Society was prevented by US forces from entering the city to provide supplies to the wounded civilians, and called the health conditions in and around Fallujah "catastrophic". Eyewitnesses say most of the victims are civilians, including, women, children, and unarmed men between the ages of 14-60 years old, who were prevented from leaving the city before the US onslaught. Furthermore, many children have died as a result of starvation, dehydration and outbreaks of diarrhoeal infections.

It could not be determined whether John Kerry was the author.

Rather than waste time disputing this lunacy point by point, I'll just limit my response to: Yeah, right.

Trudie Styler Sting Stinks of Eco-Hypocrisy

Posted by Dave Blount at 12:02 PM

Trudie Styler, wife of the bland pop star who calls himself Sting, is famous for two things: 1) her self-righteous environmental preachiness and 2) her massive carbon footprint.

Trudie blames it on her hubby:

"He has a 750-person crew to bring around the world and it is a difficult challenge.
"I would like to think that we both work pretty hard for the rights of indigenous people and for the rights of conservation of the Amazon rainforest, but we do need to get around. It's a difficult one."
Environmental experts labelled Sting's band, The Police, the dirtiest in the world because of the amount of pollution created during last year's reunion tour of the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Sweden, Germany, the UK, Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, China and Japan.
Miss Styler failed to mention in Thursday's interview that she and their family joined him on much of it.
She also forgot to add that a cavalcade of horseboxes has been known to travel between their Wiltshire pile, The Lake House, and their Tuscan estate twice a year when the family decamps for the summer.
Or indeed, the fact that the organic food she grows on the Italian-estate has to be transported to London for sale in Selfridges.
She was also accused in a recent tribunal of forcing her chef to travel 100 miles to prepare a bowl of pasta.

But she makes it all up to Gaia by denouncing American food for being "genetically modified."

Consumers Getting Wise to Green Swindle

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:41 AM

The liberal establishment has been hyping environmental mania so as to use it as a vehicle for its leftist agenda. The business community has played along, hoping to exploit it for profit. But here's an encouraging indication that the whole swindle may be running out of steam:

While many companies are now rushing to "go green," recent surveys show American consumers are getting turned off by the organic hype for three reasons: price, skepticism and confusion.

The confusion is over what exactly is meant by a product being "organic," "natural," "green," "eco-friendly," or whatever — other than that it will cost twice as much.

The percentage of consumers who believe organic products are good for them is down to 45%, while those who believe they're good for the environment has fallen to 48%, according to the latest survey from consulting firm WSL Strategic Retail. Both measures stood at a 54% approval rating two years ago.

There's a reason con men tend to take their loot and then move along to another town. Soon or later, people will figure out they're getting swindled.

Africans to Be Paid Not to Contract STDs

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:20 AM

File this one under Your Tax Dollar at Work:

Thousands of people in Africa will be paid to avoid unsafe sex, under a groundbreaking World Bank-backed experiment aimed at halting the spread of Aids.
The $1.8m trial — to be launched this year — will counsel 3,000 men and women aged 15-30 in southern rural Tanzania over three years, paying them on condition that periodic laboratory test results prove they have not contracted sexually transmitted infections.

The payments will amount to three months' wages for some participants.

You would think not contracting AIDS would be its own reward. Next we'll be paying Africans not to step on nails.

A Slavic American Response to Obama's Snobbery

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:50 AM

Mary Grabar presents possibly the best response yet to Obama's San Francisco denunciation of rural working class whites, and to the black privilege he personifies. Highlights from a very powerful piece:

We know who you're talking about, Barack Obama, when you talk about Pennsylvania and the Midwest, about small towns where the jobs have left. We know who you're talking about when you talk about those who "get bitter" and "cling to guns or religion."
You're talking about "those people."
You're talking about white people who have neither the family connections nor the racial credentials to gain entrance to the world that you inhabit. Many of the people you're talking about are those whose parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents were immigrants from Central and Eastern Europe who came to these places to work in steel mills, coal mines, and factories. We know the code words.
You're talking about people whose culture is little known. We have been pretty quiet. We never tried to impose our culture on everyone. We never insisted on putting pictures of ourselves in our native dress into schoolbooks or mandating that our stories and songs be part of the curriculums.
We tried to maintain our culture without government aid, by forming our own churches and groups, and building Polish, Ukrainian, and Slovenian halls.
We never wore buttons declaring "Slav Power" or grouped together for purposes of intimidation or violence.
The power we asked for was the power of the paycheck which we earned in factories, steel mills, coal mines, or by cleaning houses. Yet, we were taken aside and told that because of affirmative action it was no use trying to advance off the assembly line; we were told in "diversity workshops" that people of color had to be promoted over more qualified white people. […]
We paid cash for our houses and kept impeccable yards, yet saw the value of our homes plummet after marauding hoodlums came into our neighborhoods in riots that were celebrated by the intelligentsia in Manhattan penthouses, who saw such violence as justified expressions of outrage over past discrimination.
We went to public schools in those same neighborhoods only to be accosted for our skin color and the presumed "privilege" that teachers said we had. Rather than teach us what was good and beautiful about Western Civilization and the country to which our parents had fled, teachers gave us Marxist nonsense, if they bothered to teach at all. […]
Your white friends in San Francisco, Barack, probably had cleaning women like my mother (and me when I accompanied her and then had my own cleaning jobs from age 12). As white people from a certain class and with certain connections, your donors knew that their futures would be secure because of their inheritances and the connections they could make in the media, politics, and business. In fact, it would benefit them in the world of "radical chic" to hang around those like you and support your policies. […]
In fact, you and those wealthy donors sneer at white people who have had to do manual labor and who have paid for tuition at community colleges with the money earned that way, while our classmates received special scholarships and government grants — from our taxes.
You sneer at those like us who put our faith in God and not in those like you who would presume to know what's good for us and tell us what to do with our money and our children, and leave us with no ability to defend ourselves.
Well, Barack, coming from your Ivy League world, you would not know much about us. You would not have learned that because we come from people who, rather than letting their communist benefactors redistribute the food, burned the crops in their little fields before they were forcibly "collectivized." In Slovenia, they fought Tito's Partisans from the woods and held mass at night when the Communists banned church services. They remember what it's like to be hungry, ill, and living in little more than huts, while Marshall Tito and his communist cronies lived in villas. Now you live in a Chicago mansion and sneer at those like us who simply want to keep and defend our little three-bedroom ranches. You don't know what it's like to have family members die for the right to attend mass. […]
See, Barack, we know the system: Some are more "equal" than others.
And we know how you really feel about the "proletariat." We know this from our experience either directly or as an inheritance from our parents and grandparents. And that is why we came to America.

America as we know and love it will only survive as long as we have enough Mary Grabars standing up to elitist moonbattery.

Countermoonbattery from Greenpeace Founder Patrick Moore

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:06 AM

The two most salient facts of the supposed climate change crisis are: 1) there is no proof that human activity causes global warming; and 2) if carbon emissions really were causing a problem, the only effective solution would be nuclear power.

These facts have been resolutely ignored by an establishment that does not actually believe in global warming, but is only exploiting the hoax for its nefarious socialistic ends. But in the fever swamps of the environmental movement, you can find a few people who really do care about the environment, not all of whom are too flaky to draw rational conclusions:

Greenpeace founder Patrick Moore says there is no proof global warming is caused by humans, but it is likely enough that the world should turn to nuclear power[…]
"It's like buying fire insurance," Moore said. "We all own fire insurance even though there is a low risk we are going to get into an accident."
The only viable solution is to build hundreds of nuclear power plants over the next century, Moore told the Boise Metro Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday. There isn't enough potential for wind, solar, hydroelectric, and geothermal or other renewable energy sources, he said.

Moore began his career fighting nuclear testing. Somehow he managed to resist ideological ossification, so that he was able to live and learn.

Unfortunately many others in the environmental movement are reflexively antihuman, and will resist any modern technology that allows civilization to flourish.

Crackdown on Illegals Lowers Unemployment

Posted by Dave Blount at 3:19 PM

Hopefully this won't surprise anyone:

Unemployment rates are rising across the United States, except Oklahoma. That state is experiencing the most dramatic reduction in unemployment since 2007, an improvement many in Oklahoma attribute to the passage last year by the state legislature of a strong employment-focused immigration reform law.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics on Friday reported unemployment in Oklahoma had fallen to 3.1 percent in March, down from 4 percent in March last year, while unemployment nationwide was 5.1 percent, up from 4.4 percent in March last year.
"Oklahoma is no longer 'OK' for illegal aliens," said State Rep. Randy Terrill, who sponsored House Bill 1804 which passed by overwhelming majorities last year in both the House (84-14) and Senate (41-6) of the Oklahoma Legislature.
"The bottom line is illegal aliens will not come here if there are no jobs waiting for them," Terrill said. "They will not stay here if there is no government subsidy, and they certainly won't stay here if they know that if they ever encounter our state and local law enforcement officers, they will be physically detained until they are deported."

So if there are no illegals around to do the work for cheap, unemployed Americans will do it for a decent wage. Ingenious. Too bad there's no one as smart as Terrill running for President.

Socialism + Degeneracy =

Posted by Dave Blount at 2:23 PM

College students traveled to DC this week with Hollyweird harlot Amber Tamblyn to lobby Congress for passage of a bill that would lower the price of birth control on campus.

The legislation, introduced by Rep. Joseph Crowley D-N.Y. along with Sen. Claire McCaskill D-Mo., and presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama D-Ill., is called the Prevention Through Affordable Access Act. It has been introduced in both the Senate and House, but has yet to be passed.

John McCain Endorsing Obama?

Posted by Dave Blount at 12:32 PM

I have made every effort to stop detesting John McCain. Now I give up.

The Republican Party of North Carolina is running this perfectly reasonable ad:

The point is clear: Barack Obama is closely associated with creepy fanatics who hate this country intensely. Therefore, it would not be wise to elect the kind of idiots who endorse him.

Reflexively pandering to the leftist media, McLame has denounced the ad, demanding that it not be run, even while admitting that he hadn't seen it. As if he himself were endorsing O'Bigot, Lettuce appears to support the notion that any criticism of Obama or his despicable associates constitutes "racism."

If McMaverick doesn't manage to lose the election, it won't be because he didn't try.



Red Bull Blamed for Heart Attack

If you like energy drinks, enjoy them while you can. If Nanny State totalitarians like Michael Bloomberg don't go after them, ambulance chasers will:

A 40-year-old supermarket worker who suffered a fatal heart attack drank as many as four cans of Red Bull energy drink each night, the Daily Mail has reported.
Pathologist Dr. Ian Roberts said this week Alfredo Duran, 40, of Wheatley in Oxford, England, had an enlarged heart and the excessive caffeine he consumed each day may have contributed to his death.

A can of Red Bull has about as much caffeine as a cup of coffee — which is something else we'd better enjoy while bureaucrats still let us.

Could Food Shortages Sink Global Warming Hoax?

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:33 AM

Here's some good news: A few people are still sane enough to prefer real food to imaginary moonbattery:

The campaign against climate change could be set back by the global food crisis, as foreign populations turn against measures to use foodstuffs as substitutes for fossil fuels.
With prices for rice, wheat, and corn soaring, food-related unrest has broken out in places such as Haiti, Indonesia, and Afghanistan. Several countries have blocked the export of grain. There is even talk that governments could fall if they cannot bring food costs down.
One factor being blamed for the price hikes is the use of government subsidies to promote the use of corn for ethanol production. An estimated 30% of America’s corn crop now goes to fuel, not food.

The farther moonbats are able to push the global warming hoax, the higher the price the human race will have to pay. Let's end it right here.

When Elizabeth Hasselbeck, the token Homo sapien on ABC's freak show The View, pointed out the obvious fact that women are voting for Shrillary because she's allegedly a woman, and blacks for Barack O'Bigot because he's part black, the esteemed philosopher Whoopi Goldberg quickly put her in her place by condemning her point of view as "a very white way to look at it."

Germ Tallis Follow-up

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:02 AM

A little follow-up on German Tallis, the obnoxious Bush-basher who assaulted wheelchair-bound Maureen Lovetro Tuesday:

To no one's surprise, he's a 9/11 Truther, who agrees with Charlie Sheen et al. that President Bush blew up the World Trade Center.

Germ is a member of the moonbat cult We Are Change. His version of events can be found at Alex Jones' highly sympathetic Infowars, which reports that Talis

emphatically stated he did not assault the handicapped girl. In fact, he said, John Lovetro used his daughter "as a weapon" against him, ramming the wheelchair into his kneecaps and accusing him of attacking the girl.

Asking us to believe that a father used his wheelchair-bound daughter as a weapon to attack a peaceful psychopath is no more of an insult to our intelligence than any of the other paranoid psychosis coughed up by the Truther crowd, one of whom has posted the Lovetros's address and phone number on the Internet, so that they might be terrorized by legions of psychotic weirdos. Already they've had to disconnect their phone.

We Are Change provides video of Germ wasting the time of a Secret Service agent and harassing Laura and Jenna Bush. "Gary" is what the other moonbats call Tallis:

Profiles in Countermoonbattery: Dan Gillerman

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:09 AM

With John Bolton gone, if you hear any straight talk coming from the cave full of moonbats and dictators' toadies known as the U.N., it's probably the voice of Israel's ambassador Dan Gillerman:

Israel's ambassador to the United Nations on Thursday called former President Jimmy Carter "a bigot" for meeting with the leader of the militant Hamas movement in Syria.
Carter, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, "went to the region with soiled hands and came back with bloody hands after shaking the hand of Khaled Mashaal, the leader of Hamas," Ambassador Dan Gillerman told a luncheon briefing for reporters.

Carter's meeting was deliberately intended to undermine American policy toward Hamas. As Gillerman observes, it was "a very sad episode in American history" — which might be said of Jimmy the Dhimmi's entire existence.

Dirty Instruments Plague British Operating Theaters

Britain provides another glimpse of what we have to look forward to when Dems manage to socialize the healthcare sector:

Operating theatres are being thrown into chaos and operations cancelled because of broken, missing or dirty surgical instruments, surgeons say.

The situation has resulted from decontamination being done off-site at "supercenters." The Beeb predictably spins this as the fault of letting free enterprise seep into the system:

The Royal College of Surgeons of England […] said the problems have become worse since cleaning started to be handed over to private firms.

The real problem would seem to be excessive centralization, a typical symptom of socialism, as any survivor of the Soviet Union could tell you.

State Department Fights Terrorism by Revising Newspeak Dictionary

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:17 AM

Washington has adopted a cutting edge European tactic for fighting Islamic terrorism: banning words. The thousands of jihadists eager to die for the sake of killing as many of us as they can have all been eliminated in one fell swoop, now that the State Department has erased the word "jihadist" from the lexicon of approved words. Likewise, al Qaeda no longer exists as a movement, because Foggy Bottom bureauweenies aren't calling it one. The entire phenomenon of Islamofascism has been wished into the cornfield, because that word too has been struck from the dictionary.

Even if discouraging words that describe the enemy doesn't actually make the enemy go away, at least it will supposedly avoid "causing offense to moderates" — as if "moderate Muslim" weren't an oxymoron.

Eco-Kooks Punk Elle's Green Issue

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:25 PM

If even a moonbat like Thomas Friedman is getting pies thrown at him by environmental extremists, it shouldn't be too surprising that they have also targeted Elle magazine. A phony retraction sticker has been placed in the magazine reading as follows:

Following consultation with federal agencies, we at Elle wish to retract this article. Not because of the stream of factual inaccuracies beginning in the second sentence (there has never been a CrimethInc. convergence in Athens, Georgia), but because in the current political climate it is irresponsible to even pretend to give a fair hearing to radical anti-capitalists. Even if Anna's story is a cut-and-dried case of entrapment, we have to understand this as a necessary defense of our free market freedoms. Not to say that we are not concerned about the environment at Elle. On the contrary, the global environmental crisis offers unprecedented opportunities to promote sustainable fashions (p. 98), give the meat industry a makeover (p. 245), and renew faith in this country's discredited electoral process (p. 104); even the color green itself is making a comeback (p. 72). Consumer capitalism may be threatening life on earth, but there's simply no other option—that is, not unless you're willing to join the ranks of the eco-terrorists.

Apparently the sticker is turning up in copies of Elle's "green issue" throughout the country, appearing on a piece about the eco-terrorism movement based on the story of a teenage FBI informant. Elle's parent company denies placing the stickers.

Let's be glad the kooks behind this are still pulling juvenile pranks instead of putting Zyklon-B in our water supply — which would be entirely consistent with the ideology of environmental extremists.

Global Warming Update

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:01 PM

What with catastrophic global warming proceeding at such an alarming rate, regular updates are required for people to stay up to date on our planet's sweltering doom. From Science Daily:

The Antarctic deep sea is getting colder, which might stimulate the circulation of the oceanic water masses. This is the first result of the Polarstern expedition of the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research in the Helmholtz Association that has just ended in Punta Arenas/Chile. At the same time satellite images from the Antarctic summer have shown the largest sea-ice extent on record.

Ninety percent of the ice on this planet is in the Antarctic region. If ice is growing there, that means we can forget about the rising seas scenario Al Gore et al. have used to frighten money out of the gullible.

So far the only tangible symptom of the global warming crisis is rising food prices caused by the biofuels boondoggle — unless you count global warming having killed the Loch Ness Monster.

Thomas Friedman Pied by Eco-Commies

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:52 AM

Conservative speakers have long been used to campus progressives responding to their reasoned arguments by throwing food. Drunk on the success of Obama's campaign, the Left has become so radicalized that now even liberals can be targets if they are perceived to be insufficiently rabid. Yesterday's Brown Daily Herald reports from the vaunted Ivy League:

A female audience member ran on stage last night and threw a green pie at New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, who had just begun a lecture on environmentalism in Salomon 101. The woman had been sitting in the south side of the auditorium's front row when she pulled the pie out of a Brown Bookstore plastic bag that had been tucked in a red backpack and leapt out of her seat.
At the same time the woman threw the pie, a male accomplice seated a few rows back ran down the aisle and onto the stage, throwing small pamphlets explaining the actions into the crowd.
After the pie hit Friedman and splattered on his face and torso, the two jumped offstage and ran out of the southeast exit of the building, followed closely by a man trying to catch them. […]
The pamphlets thrown by the male accomplice identified the pair as the "Greenwash Guerillas," who wrote that they were acting "on behalf of the earth (sic) and all true environmentalists."
One side of the pamphlet contains an excerpt from a September 2006 review of Friedman's book, "The World is Flat," written by Raymond Lotta for the journal "Revolution," which styles itself as the "Voice of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA." The review is highly critical of Friedman, who the review claims cannot see his own errors while "seated in the business class of his analytical jetliner."
The other side contains five bullet-points explaining why "Thomas Friedman deserves a pie in the face," which include reasons like "his sickeningly cheery applaud for free market capitalism's conquest of the planet," and "for helping turn environmentalism into a fake plastic consumer product for the privileged."

I hate to be the one to break this to lunatic lefties, but modern environmentalism has always been fake and geared toward the privileged — that's why it's so popular among Ivy League students.

Needless to say, Huffington Post readers applaud the pie-throwing. Friedman needs to be silenced and humiliated because he is not sufficiently extreme on environmental issues — despite being the hysterical fanatic who called for "radical collective action" to combat the imaginary global warming crisis.

Minimum Wage Takes Toll on Restaurant Jobs

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:12 AM

The Wall Street Journal reports that restaurants are getting crunched by the slumping economy. Part of the problem is food prices being pushed through the ceiling by the biofuel boondoggle. Credit is tight, and so are consumers' fists. Also, there's this:

Adding to the pressure is a big jump in the minimum wage starting this summer, which will boost wages by 12% in some states.

As a result, chains are "shuttering sites and laying off workers." Vicorp Restaurants, which owns Bakers Square and the Village Inn restaurants, is filing for bankruptcy. No doubt hundreds will be thrown out of work.

Once again we see the minimum wage at work. By destroying low-paying, entry-level jobs, minimum wage laws are able to kick people off the bottom rung of the ladder, growing a constituency of government dependents who will support further business-crippling socialist legislation, which will create still more unemployment and dependency. This vicious cycle is what a liberal might call a "positive feedback loop."

Moonbat Assaults Girl in Wheelchair

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:45 AM

Another progressive profile in pleasantness:

A man heckling First Lady Laura Bush and daughter Jenna outside the 92nd Street Y was arrested after he punched a wheelchair-bound girl whose parents had told him to shut up, authorities said yesterday. German Talis, 22, was shouting obscenities at the Bushes, who were leaving the building Tuesday, when he crossed paths with Wendy and John Lovetro and their daughter Maureen, 18, who has cerebral palsy.

The Lovetros were trying to hear the Bushes talk about their children's book Read All About It. When they asked Talis to stop screaming obscenities, he responded by repeatedly punching Maureen. Who says liberals are a bunch of pussies?

Mexican Official Steals White House BlackBerries

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:27 AM

It's Thursday, the day the maintenance crew of illegal aliens comes through and cleans up the front of our condo. I have to keep an eye out the window, or they will invariably help themselves to a bouquet of our roses. The White House has a similar problem with blackberries — no wait, that's BlackBerries:

Whether he was up to no good or simply desperate to play BrickBreaker, a Mexican press attaché was caught on camera by Secret Service pocketing several White House BlackBerries during a recent meeting in New Orleans, FOX News has learned.
Sources with knowledge of the incident said the official, Rafael Quintero Curiel, served as the lead press advance person for the Mexican Delegation and was responsible for handling logistics and guiding the Mexican media around at the conference. He took six or seven of the handheld devices from a table outside a special room in the hotel where the Mexican delegation was meeting with President Bush earlier this week.
Everyone entering the room was required to leave his or her cell phone, BlackBerry and other such devices on the table, a common practice when high-level meetings are held. American officials discovered their missing belongings when they were leaving the session.
It didn't take long before Secret Service officials reviewed videotape taken by a surveillance camera and found footage showing Quintero Curiel absconding with the BlackBerries.
Sources said Quintero Curiel made it all the way to the airport before Secret Service officers caught up with him. He initially denied taking the devices, but after agents showed him the DVD, Quintero Curiel said it was purely accidental, gave them back, claimed diplomatic immunity and left New Orleans with the Mexican delegation.

No doubt this is a cultural thing we ought to be embracing.

Demented Law Leaves Italy Open to Invasion by Children

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:01 AM

Third World countries have seized on a typically moronic do-gooder law that forbids Italy from expelling minors to invade the country with flotillas of children, who arrive in leaky boats to land in the arms of the International Organization for Migration (IOM).

Peter Schatzer, the IOM's regional representative for the Mediterranean, said Italy was now caring for 7,000 minors, providing schooling and support at a cost of 200 million euros a year. 'It is an extremely costly exercise.' […] In 2007, 16,700 people arrived on the Italian islands of Sicily and Lampedusa. As many as 2,000 were unaccompanied minors.

The kids are expected to send money home. Often they serve as the European equivalent of anchor babies, establishing a foothold that allows the rest of the family to follow. The EU has a border patrol, called Frontex, but…

Frontex was more about search and rescue than returning people, Schatzer said.

Many illegal immigrants come through Libya, because it refuses all returns. Anyone who can't see where this is leading needs to read the prophetic book The Camp of the Saints by Jean Raspail.

England Is Erasing St. George to Placate Muslims

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:19 AM

England's patron saint is St. George, whose cross constitutes England's flag. A crowd of 10,000 was expected for the St. George Day parade in Bradford yesterday. But the parade didn't happen. Authorities nixed it, for fear it would inflame England's Muslim conquerors:

Community groups had planned to stage the multi-cultural event in Bradford and 1,500 schoolchildren were due to take part. Many of the youngsters had already made flags of St George to carry on the parade on April 23, which was designed to boost community cohesion. But last week police and council chiefs told the organisers that the event could not go ahead as planned for 'health and safety' reasons.

The reason a parade honoring St. George would threaten health and safety is that it might be attacked by Pakistani colonists, who rioted in Bradford in 2001.

Already there have been calls to drop St. George as the patron saint, "on the grounds that his image is too warlike and may offend Muslims."

The very existence of Britain offends Muslims. At the rate this recently great nation has been committing national suicide, they won't need to feel offended for long.

The Telegraph responds to the canceled parade:

Today, thousands of people the length and breadth of England will be celebrating Dragon Awareness Day. This is to draw attention to the blatant slaying of a member of the dragon community by St George, several centuries ago, and to call for a more positive attitude to these mythical monsters.
We also want to highlight our demands for 1) A full apology from the Prime Minister and the Queen; 2) Back-dated compensation for all those affected by the event; 3) Legislation to outlaw the demonising of dragons; 4) A Channel 4 documentary outlining the war crimes committed by St George, possibly leading to a trial, or at least a full public inquiry.

At least there are no Osama bin Laden Day parades in Britainistan — yet.

Who They Are: Sam Graham-Felsen

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:52 PM

Obama certainly attracts a colorful bunch of supporters. One is his official campaign blogger Sam Graham-Felsen, who has written for publications like The Nation and Socialist Viewpoint; the latter helpfully offers a page explaining Who We Are:

The Socialist Workers Organization was formed to advance the revolutionary Marxist political program in the United States. Our members are long time active participants in the socialist and labor movements. We agree with Karl Marx that society is divided into social classes whose interests are irreconcilable.
The capitalist ruling class of the United States exercises a virtual dictatorship not only over American society, but also over the entire world. This capitalist class rule is the basic cause of the poverty, wars, and the degradation of the natural environment. […]
To break the stranglehold of the capitalist minority over all of society, workers need their own political institutions. Workers and their unions need to break definitively with Democrats, Republicans, and other capitalist parties, all of which are dedicated to preserving and advancing the capitalist system of social, economic and political injustice.
Socialism, the ownership and democratic control of the means of production by the working class, and the removal of profit from the system of production, is the aim of Socialist Viewpoint, which reflects the political views of the Socialist Workers Organization.

This ideology has been tried more than once. Governments based on it killed over 100,000,000 of their own people in the course of the twentieth century, enslaving those who survived.

There's no need for Graham-Felsen to follow the part about breaking with the Democrat Party — not now that it is on the verge of being overrun by Marxists.

Graham-Felsen has also written for the Harvard Crimson, where he encouraged ultra-left anti-American zealot Noam Chomsky to tone down his repugnant rhetoric enough to gain wider acceptance. You can see why he would affix himself to Obama, who follows the strategy of smoothly saying nothing while surreptitiously advancing the same ideology our nuclear arsenal was built to keep at bay.

Preteen Moonbats Target Girl Scout Cookies

Posted by Dave Blount at 5:57 PM

You would think no one could object to Girl Scout Cookies. Yet they are a traditional part of our culture, and therefore subject to attempts at eradication by moonbats.

Middle school 12-year-olds Madison Vorva and Rhiannon Tomtishen discovered that palm oil production threatens the habitat of orangutans. If only they had learned this by reading Moonbattery, they also would have learned that it is occurring because the biofuel boondoggle, a symptom of the global warming hoax, has resulted in a grotesquely inflated demand for palm oil.

But protesting against the real problem — phony climate change hysteria — wouldn't earn the approval of educrats, who have been sending them out on an "education drive" to give presentations at area schools in moonbat-infested Ann Arbor, Michigan.

The producers of the cookies, ABC Bakers, plead that the palm oil they use is from previously cleared land. But this isn't good enough for the pint-sized eco-Nazis, who will apparently be awarded with a Girl Scout Silver Award for their efforts to cut off a major source of the organization's funding.

Palm oil demand has also increased because it is free of trans fats, against which Nanny Staters like Michael Bloomberg have been waging jihad.

The list of palm products goes far beyond Girl Scout Cookies. Madison and Rhiannon had better keep busy if they are going to save the orangutans.

More background on Obama's avid support from terrorists and tyrants can be found at Nice Deb.

So far as I know, Charles Manson hasn't come out with an endorsement. But I'm guessing he's an Obama man, based on the background of B.O. associate Bernadine Dohrn:

In the 1960s, Dohrn was a leader of the Students for a Democratic Society's "Weatherman" faction, which in 1969 went underground to become America's first terrorist cult. At a 1969 "War Council" in Flint, Michigan, Dohrn gave her most memorable and notorious speech to her followers. Holding her fingers in what became the Weatherman "fork salute," she said of the bloody murders recently committed by the Manson Family in which the pregnant actress Sharon Tate and a Folgers Coffee heiress and several other inhabitants of a Benedict Canyon mansion were brutally stabbed to death: "Dig it! First they killed those pigs, then they ate dinner in the same room with them. They even shoved a fork into the victim's stomach! Wild!" The "War Council" ended with a formal declaration of war against "AmeriKKKa," always spelled with three K's to signify the United States' allegedly ineradicable white racism.

Compared to Obama's crowd, Shrillary is downright square.

"Virtual Fence" Prototype Abandoned

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:44 AM

Surprise, surprise. The $20 million "virtual fence" prototype that it's virtually taken an armed insurrection to get the government to build will be scrapped on the grounds that it is useless at stemming the Mexican invasion.

The alleged "fence" consists of nine electronic surveillance towers spaced four miles apart. It will be replaced by another make-believe fence, which will have new cameras to take pictures of the Mexicans pouring over the border to bankrupt our social services and colonize the Southwest.

A minefield the length of the border would be thoroughly justified under the circumstances, but we'll never get one for the same reason our quisling government won't build a real fence: it is complicit in the invasion, which is providing votes for Democrats and cheap labor for plutocrats.

Obama Would Pull Plug on Space Program

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:26 AM

Absurdly, Obama's supporters have attempted to identify him with the last Democrat President who wasn't an unmitigated disaster, JFK. Among Kennedy's most notable accomplishments was the inspirational boost he gave our space program. Long after moonbats have managed to drag America down into ruin, we will be remembered as the first to walk on the moon, thanks in part to his vision. In stark contrast, Obama has been quietly promising to strangle the space program to save money for a massive transfer of wealth into the already bloated education bureaucracy.

B.O. assures us that he appreciates the importance of the space program, because he "grew up on Star Trek." Nonetheless, he doesn't think Space Shuttle liftoffs are very interesting, so why not just drop the whole thing? Translating his views into the usual vacuous rhetoric, he intones:

We're not going to have the engineers and the scientists to continue space exploration if we don't have kids who are able to read, write and compute.

Responds Lee Cary:

By the same logic, we should also suspend medical research grants and close down the National Institute of Health because we're not going to have physicians and biologists if we don't have kids who are able to read, write and compute.

The good news is that the imperative expansion of the human race into space will proceed. It's just that if moonbats like Obama have their way, it will be led by the Chicoms.

I Knew O'Bigot Reminded Me of Someone…

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:57 PM

Douglas MacKinnon reminds us where we've seen someone very much like Barack Obama before:

Barack Obama has labeled himself the "change" candidate. In doing so, he may well be replicating the failed campaign of another change candidate.
In 2006, far-left, ultra-wealthy Ned Lamont decided to challenge Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut for the Democrat nomination. Like Mr. Obama, Mr. Lamont was the product of a prestigious secondary school and Harvard University. Like Mr. Obama, Mr. Lamont predicated almost his entire campaign, and reason for being, on just one issue: his uniformed and naive opposition to the war in Iraq. Like Mr. Obama, Mr. Lamont eagerly sought and received, the blessing of radically left organizations like MoveOn.Org and the Daily Kos. Like Mr. Obama, Mr. Lamont was a political neophyte with almost no relevant experience.

A lack of qualifications didn't hurt Lamont with the fawning media or radicalized Democrat primary voters any more than it's hurting B.O. Sheer left-wing fanaticism was enough to see him through — until he got to the election, where grownups were allowed to participate. Lieberman ran as an independent and beat him. Likewise, Barack the Teenage Messiah will be in trouble when he has to step out of the playpen and explain himself to adults.

How broad and deep is the support for Mr. Obama? If he does secure the nomination, America will take time to pause. When it does, millions of voters will finally focus on the election. When they do, many will come to the conclusion that Mr. Obama is an illusion. A projection on a screen of a politician that does not exist. In the face of the hype and not ready to turn over the Oval Office to an illusion, millions of voters will dig deeper and discover a man with no experience who wants to add $900 billion to their tax burden, socialize medicine, and strip our military and intelligence services of the tools they need to monitor and defeat the terrorists poised to strike into the heart of America.
When such needed reflection takes place, Mr. Obama will be exposed as not an agent of change but as the national Mr. Lamont.

At that point, we may actually be thanking Obamination for helping us dodge the Shrillary bullet.

Europeans Lag Behind USA in Enviromoonbattery

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:11 PM

Hopefully we'll see less finger-wagging from Euromoonbats in light of this revelation:

Driven by rising demand, record high oil and natural gas prices, concerns over energy security and an aversion to nuclear energy, European countries are slated to put into operation about 50 coal-fired plants over the next five years, plants that will be in use for the next five decades.
In the United States, fewer new coal plants are likely to open up, in part because it is becoming harder to get regulatory permits and in part because nuclear power remains an alternative. Of 151 proposals in early 2007, more than 60 had been dropped by the year’s end, many blocked by state governments. Dozens of other are stuck in court challenges.

Actually nuclear reactors aren't easy to build here either — unlike in France. If only Europe would import some of our lawyers, activists, and spineless politicians, it might be able to regain the high moral ground in the farcical environmental craze.

Invention of Styrofoam Repealed

Ninety percent of the ice on the planet is in Antarctica, where it has been thickening. So how have hoaxers like Al Gore been able to convince so many gullible tools that we're all doomed because the ice is melting? One highly successful tactic is using documentary footage consisting of computer-generated scenes from cheesy science fiction movies.

Biofuels: The Template for Climate Crisis Solutions

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:28 AM

Biofuels give us an idea what we can expect from heavy-handed environmental campaigns. In the name of saving the planet from the nonexistent global warming crisis, the boondoggle has accomplished the following, according to two environmentalists:

  • Helped drive up food prices, contributing to a global crisis;
  • Led to "increased environmental damage," including dead zones in the Gulf of Mexico so polluted by fertilizer runoff that nothing can live;
  • Created "incentives for global deforestation, including in the Amazon basin";
  • Reduced U.S. oil consumption by 1% while eating up 25% of our corn production.

If there really were such a thing as carbon-induced global warming, biofuels would be making it worse by leading to the clearing of rainforests, which absorb massive amounts of carbon dioxide.

By now everyone except bureaucrats knows that biofuels are a complete failure. But the boondoggle will roll forward anyway, continuing to wreak havoc on both our standard of living and the environment. Once started, government initiatives are difficult if not impossible to stop, no matter how disastrous.

Taxpayers will still be subsidizing ruinous biofuels when the next catastrophic solution to the imaginary climate crisis is imposed.

Bolivia's left-wing president said unbridled industrial development was responsible for the pillaging of natural resources.

Britain's "Why Bother?" Economy

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:11 AM

You have to hand it to British bureaucrats: they have been overwhelmingly successful in their efforts to cultivate an ever-growing subclass of citizens unwilling and largely unable to do any useful labor, who exist only to vote for more benefits. From the Daily Mail:

A "why bother?" economy has been created in Britain which has left thousands with no motivation to work, a report published today concludes. Successive governments have encouraged a welfare culture that has left every family facing a £1,300 bill because the poor stay poor, it claims. The findings by the public services think tank Reform suggest that increased welfare dependency has made it more difficult for those on the lowest incomes to do better.
An education system with a "dismal record" of educating the poorest, and a complex welfare system, have together created a far more divided society than other European countries, it finds. Means-tested benefits and higher taxes have reduced the incentives available to those on low incomes to better themselves, Reform says. It concludes: "The unintended consequence has been a 'why bother?' economy in which a significant minority do not have the capability or motivation to succeed."

But assuming that the "why bother?" economy is an unintended consequence is an insult to the intelligence of liberal social engineers. Obviously if you pay people not to work, they won't work. Dennis Kucinich could figure it out.

Basically, liberalism has reduced humans to farm animals. Just like chickens are raised by farmers for their eggs, welfare dependents are raised by the State for their votes.

Muslims Demand Magic Meteor Mean Time

Today a billion Muslims pray facing the meteor. In Britainistan, graveyards and prison toilets are oriented with the meteor in mind.

Now Muslims are demanding that international time zones be based on the meteor, on the grounds that Mecca's longitude is in perfect alignment with magnetic north. Also, Greenwich Mean Time is a relic of British colonial oppression. Now that it's Muslims who do the oppressing, it must be changed to Mecca Mean Time, or maybe Magic Meteor Mean Time.

"The Battle to Reduce Waste" Claims Another Casualty

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:48 AM

The latest from trash-obsessed Airstrip One:

With his rubbish collected only once a fortnight, Gareth Corkhill's wheelie bin was so full the lid wouldn't shut. And for that, the father of four finds himself with a criminal record. Magistrates convicted the 26-year-old bus driver after hearing evidence that the lid was four inches ajar, which is against rules to stop bins overflowing.
He was ordered to pay £210 — a week's wages — after he declined to pay an on-the-spot fine imposed by the local council's bin police, who visited him wearing stab-proof vests and carrying photographic evidence of his crime.
To add insult to injury he was told to pay a £15 victim surcharge to help victims of violence — despite there being no victim — and threatened with prison if he failed to pay. Rapists, murderers and other violent criminals who have earned a jail sentence rather than a fine are immune from the penalty.
Yesterday the council, Copeland in Cumbria, said that Mr Corkhill's family had caused problems for "the battle to reduce waste".

Britons will also be fined if they put their bins out earlier than 7 a.m. — never mind that some people leave for work before then.

Anti-Obamination Ad

This should start airing tomorrow:

Obama opposed the death penalty for gang-related murders on the grounds that most of the animals who commit them are not Caucasian. As O'Bigot explained:

There's a strong overlap between gang affiliation and young men of color … I think it's problematic for them to be singled out as more likely to receive the death penalty for carrying out certain acts than are others who do the same thing.

It's not the crime that matters; it's the ethnicity of the criminal. Imagine a politician who refused to get tough on embezzlement on the grounds that it could land too many whites in jail.

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:24 AM

As a diplomat, Jimmy Carter would make a good shopping cart wrangler. The latest on his trip to Syria to play footsy with Hamas terrorist Khaled Mashaal:

Just hours after former President Jimmy Carter trumpeted Hamas' agreement to let Israel "live as a neighbor," the same terrorist leader he met with face-to-face vowed not to recognize the Jewish state.

Jimmy the Dhimmi opines:

The present strategy of excluding Hamas and excluding Syria is just not working.

As opposed to Carter's strategy toward Iran, which worked out spectacularly — for the Islamic terrorist movement.

Someone needs to remind the Dhimmi that he has been out of office for decades, and his deranged policy decisions are no longer relevant. Unfortunately he retains the ability to lend propaganda support to terrorists, and to make our country look foolish.

Kid with Down's Syndrome Charged with Racism

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:01 AM

The story of Jamie Bauld — who suffers from Down's syndrome — gives an idea of how crazy it's getting in Britain:

Last September, Jamie — who is 18 but cannot even tie his own shoelaces, needs help on the lavatory, mustn't be left alone in the house and still relies on his mother to tuck him up in bed at night — had an altercation with an Asian girl of a similar age, also a pupil at the special needs department of Motherwell College in Lanarkshire, where Jamie is a student.
Put quite simply — girl irritated boy, boy pushed girl and told her to go away. Then, girl responded by telling her teacher.
The two were sent their separate ways and their parents informed about the falling out.
Given their mental ages, it was no more significant than a playground spat between two five-year-olds. That should have been the end of it.
Instead, a notice was placed in the local newspaper — it is not known by whom — asking for witnesses to a "racial assault" at the college on the day in question.
Whether this notice led to the police investigation, or whether the family of the girl contacted them directly is still not clear. Either way, just over a week later, Jamie was charged with racism and assault.

"Asian" in this context almost certainly means "Pakistani." The Pakistanis displacing Britain's native population are a privileged class that must not be shown disrespect in any way — not even by a totally oblivious kid with Down's syndrome. After all, if Jamie is so innocent, how come he's Caucasian?

Moonbattery Causing Gas Crisis in Scotland

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:58 AM

The worldwide shortage of oil, an inevitable consequence of moonbatty restrictions on drilling and refining, is approaching crisis proportions in Scotland.

A union representing 1,200 employees at the Ineos refinery is exploiting the situation by choosing next week to walk off the job to extort higher pensions. Employing the typical leftist tactic of calling the kettle black, union officials have accused the refinery's operator of "economic terrorism."

The good news is that a few people are starting to understand that gas prices would be much more manageable if government weren't so greedy. Observes Mark Francis of the People's Fuel Lobby:

We are getting taxed to the hilt to pay for unnecessary spending by this government.

Already there has been panic buying of the sort that set off a full-scale crisis in 2000.

Soon people will have to choose between fuel and moonbattery. If we let our governments choose for us, the choice will be moonbattery.

PETA Outmoonbats the Goracle

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:09 AM

You would think no one could be more extreme than Al Gore on environmental issues. Yet PETA sociopaths have managed to outflank him on the left by demanding that he stop eating a normal human diet.

According to the lunatic logic of PETA and the U.N., eating meat causes global warming. This seems to have a lot to do with animal flatulence. If we didn't raise cows for food, there wouldn't be enough of them to heat up the planet with their farts.

Why PETA would want to save farm animals by limiting their numbers to a handful of specimens in zoos is not explained, unless they're actually so crazy they believe the U.N. that cows make it be too hot out.

Proving that the global warming hoax can be exploited to justify any nefarious leftist ideology, PETA is claiming that the #1 cause of the nonexistent global warming crisis is people eating meat.

Profiles in Countermoonbattery: Sue Myrick

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:36 AM

Not everyone in Congress is a squirming perfidious invertebrate willing to sell out America at the first opportunity. Rep. Sue Myrick (R-NC) has wisely called for Jimmy Carter's passport to be revoked in response to his treasonous powwows with Hamas terrorists. As Myrick wisely observes:

His actions reward terrorists, lend support and provide legitimacy to their belief that violence will eventually get them what they want.

These days it's apparently too much to ask that Carter be prosecuted for sedition (for which he was awarded a Nobel Prize). But revoking his passport to minimize the mischief he can cause in the future is the least we can do. Better still, since Carter has made it obvious that he hates this country anyway, he should be denied reentry. Then he could spend his waning years doing what he loves best: nibbling the toes of terrorists.

Myrick has proposed a 10-point plan to protect America from future 9/11's, which includes doing something about the orchestrated spread of radical Islam in our prisons and the military, and examining the nonprofit status of Hamas's American propaganda wing, CAIR.

Meanwhile, the rest of Congress is busy looking for the most insidious way to plunge the economy into a permanent depression in the name of the global warming hoax.

Now the Starving Are Really in Trouble

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:03 AM

As if the world's starving weren't in enough trouble as a result of unscrupulous politicians forcing us to put food in our gas tanks in the name of the global warming farce, now the U.N.'s clueless Ban Ki-Moonbat has promised to help them:

The U.N. chief warned Sunday that the world must urgently increase food production to ease skyrocketing prices and pledged to set up a task force on a crisis threatening to destabilize developing nations.
The cost of food has increased by around 40 percent since mid-2007 worldwide, and the strain has caused riots and protests in countries such as Cameroon, Burkina Faso, Haiti and Egypt.

Ki-Moonbat listed a number of reasons for the food shortage, apparently without mentioning the most obvious and easiest to fix: the biofuel boondoggle. His "task force" can be relied on to accomplish nothing more than extracting Western tax money to throw at wasteful palliative measures. On the bright side, it can't turn out any worse than the Iraq Oil for Food mess.

Absurdly, the U.N. pretends the world can cut poverty and CO2 emissions at the same time. But as global warming moonbattery rises, suppressing economic activity, so does human misery.

Moonbat Media Admits: Biofuels Cause Senseless Misery

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:27 PM

The pain that moonbats would inflict on the human race in the name of the global warming hoax is beginning to become apparent in the effect the biofuels boondoggle is having on world hunger. Even the Kool-Aid–guzzling dupes at AFP admit:

[A]s soaring prices for staples bring more of the planet's most vulnerable people face-to-face with starvation, the image of biofuels has suddenly changed from climate saviour to a horribly misguided experiment.
On Friday, the head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) said biofuels "posed a real moral problem" and called for a moratorium on using food crops to power cars, trucks and buses.
The vital problem of global warming "has to be balanced with the fact that there are people who are going to starve to death," said Dominique Strauss-Kahn.
"Producing biofuels is a crime against humanity," the UN's special rapporteur for the right to food, Jean Ziegler of Switzerland, said earlier.

If even AFP can see through biofuels, despite their heavy government backing, there may still be hope that the global warming hoax will be laughed into its grave before politicians can exploit it to wreak irrevocable harm on our economy and our liberty.

Newt Defects to the Enemy

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:33 PM

I always thought Newt Gingrich was a little too fond of government solutions but otherwise okay. I've revised that opinion in light of this:

The global warming hoax is the mother of all left-wing issues, the tactic moonbats are relying on to break the back of capitalism and impose totalitarian control over the economy and everything else that generates CO2 — up to and including breathing. Any conservative that sides with the Left by lending credence to the hoax, may as well side with it on everything else.

The cowardly and perfidious willingness of Republicans like Gingrich and McMaverick to play along with this farce is pushing us ever closer toward the European system of a single party with two different names, whereby no matter how an election turns out, the government wins, and the public loses.

Australian Health Experts Push toward Totalitarianism

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:56 AM

From Australia, a nation once known for its rugged, independent spirit:

Smoking would be banned for everyone born next year, junk food would be taxed and everyone would be subjected to a fitness test by 2020. […] These are just a few of the ideas from 100 of the nation's health experts who discussed the best way to combat obesity, reduce illness and promote a healthy lifestyle.
Health Minister Nicola Roxon said one idea put forward in a submission was an annual national fitness test where citizens would receive a financial incentive if they pass.

Free money for passing a fitness test? That's great — except the money isn't free; bureaucrats take it from you and then give you a little bit back if you live as you're told.

Surprisingly, there was no mention of mandatory telescreens, so that authorities can make sure everyone does their morning calisthenics. But then, it goes without saying that anything mentioned in 1984 will be implemented as soon as politically feasible.

Food is to be priced according to "environmental and health impact." I hadn't realized Australia is already a communist country where prices are set not by the market but by politicians.

Another idea is to promote death as a "positive experience." Moonbattery just keeps getting scarier.

Lest We Forget

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:34 AM

Yesterday was the 65th anniversary of the Warsaw ghetto uprising. Ceremonies were held in honor of Marek Edelman, the last surviving commander of the rebellion. A short history lesson:

After invading Poland in 1939, Nazi Germany set up ghettos nationwide to isolate the country's Jews and facilitate the "Final Solution" — half of the six million Jews who died in the Holocaust were Polish.
At its height, more than 450,000 were crammed into the walled Warsaw ghetto. About 100,000 died inside from starvation, disease and in summary executions. Most of the rest were sent to Treblinka in mass deportations which began in 1942.
In the ghetto, a handful of Jewish paramilitary groups, mostly made up of young people — Edelman was just 20 — coalesced into a poorly-armed force of around 1,000. The banner of one group was a blue Star of David on a white background, which caused Nazi ire when it was hoisted during the revolt. It became the flag of Israel. […]
The ghetto fighters first clashed with the Nazis on January 18-22, 1943, managing to hinder the deportations. On April 19, 1943, they took up arms again, as the Nazis moved to wipe out the remaining 60,000 ghetto dwellers.
"We knew perfectly well that there was no way we could win," Edelman told AFP in a recent interview. "It was a symbol of the fight for freedom. A symbol of standing up to Nazism, and of not giving in," he said. […]
Besides denting the Nazis' sense of superiority, the fighters managed to inflict some damage, killing and injuring a combined 300 troops.

Eventually the uprising was crushed by overwhelming force. Edelman was among a handful who survived by escaping through the sewers. The story makes it clear why Nazis didn't like for private citizens to have guns.

In related news, bitter, Bible-thumping Pennsylvania voters who cling to their guns might be interested in a report on Politico:

Barack Obama's presidential campaign has worked to assure uneasy gun owners that he believes the Constitution protects their rights and that he doesn't want to take away their guns.
But before he became a national political figure, he sat on the board of a Chicago-based foundation that doled out at least nine grants totaling nearly $2.7 million to groups that advocated the opposite positions.
The foundation funded legal scholarship advancing the theory that the Second Amendment does not protect individual gun owners' rights, as well as two groups that advocated handgun bans. And it paid to support a book called "Every Handgun Is Aimed at You: The Case for Banning Handguns." […]
In his appeal to gun owners, Obama has not emphasized his own legislative record, which includes supporting a ban on semiautomatic weapons and concealed weapons, and a limit on handgun purchases to one a month. He has blamed his staff for indicating on a questionnaire filled out during his 1996 state Senate bid under his name that he supports banning "the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns."

Race-obsessed statists do seem to have a problem with private citizens being able to defend themselves.

Obama's Wheels Start to Come Loose

Posted by Dave Blount at 2:00 PM

Last night the wheels began to come off for Barack Obama, when ABC's Charlie Gibson went off the reservation and asked him challenging questions during a debate. Obama's economic ineptitude immediately became obvious. The Wall Street Journal reports:

Time and again, the rookie Senator has said he would not raise taxes on middle-class earners, whom he describes as people with annual income lower than between $200,000 and $250,000. On Wednesday night, he repeated the vow. "I not only have pledged not to raise their taxes," said the Senator, "I've been the first candidate in this race to specifically say I would cut their taxes."
But Mr. Obama has also said he's open to raising — indeed, nearly doubling to 28% — the current top capital gains tax rate of 15%, which would in fact be a tax hike on some 100 million Americans who own stock, including millions of people who fit Mr. Obama's definition of middle class.
Mr. Gibson dared to point out this inconsistency, which regularly goes unmentioned in Mr. Obama's fawning press coverage. But Mr. Gibson also probed a little deeper, asking the candidate why he wants to increase the capital gains tax when history shows that a higher rate brings in less revenue.
"Bill Clinton in 1997 signed legislation that dropped the capital gains tax to 20%," said Mr. Gibson. "And George Bush has taken it down to 15%. And in each instance, when the rate dropped, revenues from the tax increased. The government took in more money. And in the 1980s, when the tax was increased to 28%, the revenues went down. So why raise it at all, especially given the fact that 100 million people in this country own stock and would be affected?"

Obama bobbed and weaved and gibbered, but could not even begin to answer the question. WSJ reaches the obvious conclusion:

Either the young Illinois Senator is ignorant of this revenue data, or he doesn't really care because he's a true income redistributionist who prefers high tax rates as a matter of ideological dogma regardless of the revenue consequences.

That is, Obama and his supporters are either:

  1. Ignorant fools.
  2. Malevolent socialist thugs.

A peek into his background suggests that Obama is more B than A, whereas many of his supporters are better characterized as A.

But his hard-core base, ignorant and foolish though it may be, leans heavily toward B, as demonstrated in the course of tantrums over Gibson daring to toss Obama anything other than the usual softballs. Check out this gem from Daily Kos (via DUmmie FUnnies):

Put me in charge and I will have these conglomerates broken up with their management and lackeys (Gibson, Stephanopoulos) in prison for a long time. Crimes against democracy will be defined, codified and punishments carried out forthwith.

Don't laugh too hard. In places like the North Korea and Cuba, people like this have managed to take control of the government.

Eco-Lunacy Drives Moonbats Insane

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:24 AM

Hard as it may be to believe, many liberals take their own eco-blather seriously. Given that they are hardly paragons of mental stability to begin with, their constant obsessing on consumer guilt and planetary doom are driving moonbats right over the edge. Some even come down with psychosomatic symptoms:

Sarah Edwards worries about the gasoline she burns, the paper towels she throws out, the litter on the beach, water pollution. She worries so much, it literally makes her sick.
"Fear, grief, anger, confusion and depression," Edwards says, pointing to the negativity that has manifested itself in real-life symptoms such as neck and shoulder pain, fibromyalgia and fatigue.
"I had so much pathos. It's so sad," says Edwards, who moved from California's crowded Santa Monica to a secluded cabin in Los Padres National Forest to help her cope.
Now, she says: "We only drive to the grocery store every three weeks. We have our own source of water. We compost and no longer heat every room on the first floor."
Edwards suffers from eco-anxiety, the growing angst experienced by those who can't handle the thought that they — or anyone — are in some way contributing to global warming, species extinction and dwindling natural resources.

Opportunists are "treating" kooks like Sarah by indulging them in their morbid fantasies:

Things have gotten so bad, a new kind of therapy has sprouted up to keep people from going nuts over the environment. It's called "eco-therapy" or "eco-psychology." The time on the couch isn't spent delving into a patient's childhood to find the source of misery. Instead, it looks at how much time a person spends in nature, the person's carbon footprint and what the individual is doing to save the planet. And the prescribed treatment may be as simple as a dose of recycling or — you guessed it — hugging a tree.

Patients are advised to consume less, take shorter showers, and read more of the global warming propaganda that made them go off the rails in the first place. For this they are charged upwards of $100 per hour. There's one born every minute.

If only the real cure for eco-anxiety were so simple as pointing out to these idiots that modern environmentalism is an insidious, antihuman lie, which leftists are exploiting as a Trojan horse to sneak in totalitarianism. But the true believers are probably such screw-up wrecks to begin with, Thorazine might be a more effective approach.

By the way, Sarah Edwards has a blog, at which she defines eco-anxiety as a "pre-traumatic stress syndrome." Someone call the men in white coats, and tell them to bring their butterfly nets.

Global Warming Charade Could Cripple Australia's LNG Industry

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:54 AM

The Australian government having fallen to irresponsible Labor moonbats led by Kevin Crud is bad news for the liquified natural gas industry. The government's greedy carbon trading scheme foolishness will effectively add a massive tax to Australian LNG exports — stifling investment and driving customers into the arms of Australia's Muslim competitors in places like Indonesia and Qatar.

The carbon trading scheme, in whatever guise it takes, is likely to have an impact on most Australian LNG projects, said Stuart Baker, an analyst at Morgan Stanley in Melbourne.
"Most of the LNG schemes that have been proposed around the country are fairly heavy emitters of CO2 so they are going to have to deal that into their thinking," Baker said. "Just about everybody who has a project will have to start to think about capturing the CO2 and sequestering it," or storing the carbon dioxide underground, which is untested technology, he said.

Physically, CO2 is absolutely harmless; in fact, it is to plants what oxygen is to animals. But ideologically, liberals regard it as unclean, because of its role in discredited global warming theology. The price we pay for this absurd prejudice is likely to be staggering.

Global Warming Propagandists Trivialize Iwo Jima

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:19 AM

Time magazine's desperate efforts to breathe new life into the flagging global warming swindle is not winning any friends among the greatest generation. Check out the April 21 cover:

TimeIwoJima.jpg

According to Time propagandists, we are to devote a WWII level of intensity toward empowering government bureaucracy and crippling our own economy in the name of the discredited hoax. Patriotism is to be replaced by reverence for the "red, white, and green."

Comments Lt. John Keith Wells, leader of the platoon that raised the flags on Mt. Suribachi:

That global warming is the biggest joke I've ever known. [W]e'll stick a dadgum tree up somebody's rear if they want that and think that's going to cure something.

Iwo Jima vet Donald Mates elaborates:

The second world war we knew was there. There's a big discussion. Some say there is global warming, some say there isn't. And to stick a tree in place of a flag on the Iwo Jima picture is just sacrilegious.

But the damp little weenies who run Time magazine live in their fantasies, and would be unable to comprehend a struggle against an enemy that isn't a fabrication. They got a small taste on 9/11, but quickly blocked that experience out of their minds.

Time aggressively advocates increasing taxes and regulation in the name of the global warming farce — i.e., they want the sort of excessively powerful government that the Marines were fighting at Iwo Jima. For more irony, see Time's 1974 claim that the sky is falling because of global cooling.

Managing editor Richard Stengel comments on the magazine's leftist advocacy journalism:

I have felt that one of the things that's needed in journalism is that you have to have a point of view about things. You can't always just say "on the one hand, on the other" and you decide. People trust us to make decisions. We're experts in what we do.

Three things I'd like to tell Stengel:

  1. The moonbat fantasists at Time are hardly "experts" at climate science, and even the real experts don't know which way the climate is going, only that it will continue to fluctuate as it always has.
  2. We little people most decidedly do not trust you pompous liars to make our decisions.
  3. Show some respect for the vets who, unlike the media establishment and its phony campaigns, deserve it.

British Dhimmis Barred from Their Own Pools

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:01 PM

A taste of things to come as Britain submits to Islam:

A father and his five-year-old son were turned away from their local swimming pool because they were the wrong religion. David Toube, 39, and his son Harry were told that the Sunday morning session was reserved for Muslim men only. Hackney Council, which runs the Clissold Leisure Centre in Stoke Newington, north London, claimed staff there had made a mistake. However, the Muslim-only session was advertised on its website.

You see, infidels are unclean.

If this is what it's like now, imagine in another generation or two, when Muslims are in the majority. The best possible scenario at that point would be for Britons to begin to fight back; then the country will turn into 1980s Lebanon as they are steadily ethnically cleansed out of existence, like Lebanese Christians. Either that or they will obey their government's orders just to lie there and die like they've been doing.

Dark Skin Will Get You a Light Sentence in Iowa

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:33 PM

The implications are terrifying:

Iowa Gov. Chet Culver today signed a bill that would require state officials to determine the potential impact on Iowa minorities of any legislation dealing with criminal sentencing and state grant programs.
Culver, a Democrat, signed House File 2393 at the John R. Grubb YMCA on Des Moines' near north side in the heart of one of the city's most racially diverse neighborhoods.
"This means when members of the general assembly and executive branch are considering legislation of this nature, we will now be able to do so with a clearer understanding of its potential effects, both positive and negative, on Iowa's minority communities," Culver said before signing the bill.

Apparently Culver's law means that if you are black and commit a crime in Iowa, you will receive a lighter sentence, owing to ethnic privilege. Or else sentences will be reduced for those crimes more likely to be committed by blacks. It's as if Barack Obama's people had already taken control.

The next step will be entirely separate sets of laws for blacks and whites, just as primitive Islamic societies have separate laws for Muslims and dhimmis.

In an attempt to justify this outrageous violation of the concept of equality before the law, Culver noted that blacks make up just 2% of Iowa's population, but almost 25% of the state's prison inmates. Likewise, they constitute 5% of elementary and secondary students, but account for 22% of suspensions and expulsions. By a staggering perversion of common sense, everyone except blacks are supposedly to blame for this.

Since it would be politically incorrect to acknowledge that the welfare state has destroyed the black family, resulting in a criminally dysfunctional subculture, we're asked to believe that all these people are thrown into jail or expelled from school just for being black. When politicians get away with telling lies this preposterous, society is headed for serious trouble.

Culver's deranged bill passed unanimously in the House, and 47-2 in the Senate.

This is where the problems begin! Cumberland County, NC officials say that Henry now has two dogs too many. He had three of his own and is caring for his son's two dog until his deployment ends in December.

Officials claim that Carroll is running an unlicensed kennel. According to some county documents, which are contradicted by others, a house becomes a kennel if it has four or more dogs in it.

Henry says that if he's forced to give up two of the dogs, he will give up two of his own beloved dogs rather than break the promise he made to his son who is defending his country.

Officious little bureauweenies always find a way to stick it to our troops and their families — and now even their pets. Extraneous laws for every occasion make it easy for them to harass whomever they please.

French Denounce English Language

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:04 AM

As Muslim colonization pushes France close enough to obliteration that cultural icons like Brigitte Bardot are forced to stand trial for violating the precepts of dhimmitude, at last the French are fighting back against the invasion — not the Islamic invasion that threats their existence, but the invasion of the English language.

To the barricades! That's the message of language purists aghast that the lyrics of France's entry in a hugely popular European song contest are — mon Dieu! — in English. Critics, including the French government, are adamant: Sebastien Tellier should not perform "Divine" at Eurovision — unless it is in French.
"A song represents the soul of a country," said Marc Favre d'Echallens, who heads a group dedicated to defending French against the growing use of English. "It appears logical that a song representing France be a French song sung in French," he said, denouncing cultural "uniformity" and the "hegemony" of the English language in the world today.
It's the latest battle in a war France has waged for decades to defend French against the encroachment — some call it the invasion — of the English language.

Ironically, people who speak English twice prevented France from being conquered and absorbed by people who speak German. We can't do much to prevent them from being conquered and absorbed by people who speak Arabic.

Another Endorsement for Barack O'Bigot

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:29 AM

Barack Obama's impressive list of endorsements keeps growing. To Hamas, Louis Farrakhan, Hanoi Jane Fonda, troop-maligning jackass Richard Belzer, Chappaquiddick Ted Kennedy, the Black Panthers, racist demagogue James Meeks, publicly homosexual Episcopal Bishop V. Gene Robinson, Marxist American adversary Daniel Ortega, and John "Botched Joke" Kerry we can now add aging pop star Bruce Springsteen.

"The Boss" likes Obama because he will create an America in which "nobody goes it alone." So much for rugged individualism. Springsteen prefers a world where all blades of grass are cut to the same height. He also likes that Obama will "fight for economic and racial justice" — i.e., steal from those who work to buy votes from those who don't, and help liberals wallow in their neurotic guilt by putting the screws to the white man.

Ironically, the lyrics to Springsteen's rather boring music often feature the kind of people Obama dismisses as bitter small town bigots desperately clinging to guns and Bibles. But you can't expect much ideological coherence from a pop star. All you can expect is moonbattery.

More on Abortion Artist Aliza Shvartz and Her School

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:54 AM

A little background on Aliza Shvartz, the Yale student who is literally aborting babies as her senior art project:

Here's some video of Ms. Shvartz sounding off about "patriarchal, you know, heteronormative trappings" and how we must "dismantle" civilization:

Aliza has a lot of derogatory things to say about institutions. Unfortunately, it is only slightly grown-up versions of Eliza Shvartz who are running most of our institutions — including Yale, which as noted previously, has gone out of its way to honor abortion before:

In commemoration of the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision, the 35th anniversary of which is this month, the Reproductive Rights Action League at Yale (RALY), in conjunction with Yale Medical Students for Choice, demonstrated different abortion methods and techniques, answered questions students had about the procedures and encouraged students to be active in abortion-rights groups during last night’s presentation. The presentation was part of a week-long celebration of the 35th anniversary of the landmark decision.

Medical student Rasha Khoury enthused about how "fun" and "inspiring" the festivities were, and about the "arms and stuff" you could see among the blended baby remains in an abortion device.

Thank you Aliza Shvartz, Rasha Khoury, Yale, and the entire elite moonbat establishment for reminding us once again that modern liberalism isn't just wrong — it is sick, evil, and obscene.

Abortion as an Art Form

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:33 AM

For sheer depravity, it wasn't easy for the art community to top publicly starving a dog to death — yet Yale art student Aliza Shvarts has managed:

Beginning next Tuesday, Shvarts will be displaying her senior art project, a documentation of a nine-month process during which she artificially inseminated herself "as often as possible" while periodically taking abortifacient drugs to induce miscarriages. Her exhibition will feature video recordings of these forced miscarriages as well as preserved collections of the blood from the process.

No, Shvarts is not staging a remake of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre in her own womb. It's all about moonbattery. In her own words:

I believe strongly that art should be a medium for politics and ideologies, not just a commodity. I think that I'm creating a project that lives up to the standard of what art is supposed to be.

There was a time when people this sick would have been subjected to an exorcism, or at the very least locked away in a mental asylum. Now, they're rewarded with degrees from Ivy League institutions. Soon Shvarts will be collecting your money via NEA grants.

Losses Won't Stop for Stop Loss

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:11 AM

It used to be that when Hollywood churned out garbage, it could hide behind the market. "We're just businessmen, giving people what they ask for." However, nobody is asking for the seditious trash it has been pumping out in an overt campaign to undermine our troops fighting terrorists abroad.

The latest case in point is Stop Loss. Due to its anti-American message, the movie received laudatory reviews. But for some reason no one wants to sit through it:

Friday's No. 7 Stop-Loss fell a spot to 8th after it opened to only $1.7 million Friday and Saturday from a limited 1,291 plays. It eked out a $4.5M weekend. Although the drama from MTV Films was the best-reviewed movie opening this weekend, Paramount wasn't expecting much because no Iraq war-themed movie has yet to perform at the box office. "It's not looking good," a studio source told me before the weekend. "No one wants to see Iraq war movies. No matter what we put out there in terms of great cast or trailers, people were completely turned off."

They could always try making a movie that doesn't cast Americans as the bad guys. But that would be pandering to the grubby marketplace, full of bitter yokel losers who cling to their guns and Bibles, etc.

Stop Loss has been out since March and has only grossed just over $10 million. The production budget was $25 million. The numbers are even grimmer for Brian De Palma's despicable Redacted, which has grossed about $750,000 worldwide since it came out last November.

You might think heads would be rolling after all the money flushed away on anti-war flops like Stop Loss, Redacted, Rendition, Lions for Lambs, In the Valley of Elah, Badland, Grace Is Gone, ad nauseam. If so, think again. The people running Hollyweird have more money than they know what to do with, or they wouldn't support Democrats. Maybe movies were about business in the olden days; now they are about disseminating moonbattery.

Hamas Endorses Obama

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:06 PM

Obama just keeps lining up those key endorsements: the Black Panthers, Jane Fonda — and now even Hamas, which unsurprisingly supports Obama's anti-Israeli (not to mention anti-American) foreign policy vision.

Gushes top Hamas honcho Ahmed Yousef:

We don't mind — actually we like Mr. Obama. We hope he will (win) the election and I do believe he is like John Kennedy, great man with great principle, and he has a vision to change America to make it in a position to lead the world community but not with domination and arrogance.

So far as I know, Satan hasn't endorsed Obama yet. But then, an endorsement by Satan would be redundant at this point.

Australian Schoolchildren Still Allowed to Say "Mother" and "Father" for Now

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:57 PM

Here's a little good news:

Schools will not move to stop using words like mum and dad, or girlfriend and boyfriend, the New South Wales Education Department says, despite reports that public schools are under pressure to provide gay-friendly environments.
Changes to terminology, such as using the word "partner" to cover heterosexual relationships, are being sought by gay lobbyists bent on reducing discrimination in a major anti-homophobia push in the state's schools, The Daily Telegraph reports.

What kind of demented world are we living in that schools have to deny they've forbidden words like "mother" at the behest of militant homosexuals who want to force their way into the heads of little kids?

Ethnically Privileged Allowed to Tell the Truth

Posted by Dave Blount at 3:01 PM

Mentioning the obvious and indisputable fact that Barack Obama owes his present political position to his skin color is like using the forbidden N word. Only the ethnically privileged can do it.

There was an outrage when Geraldine Ferraro said this:

If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. And if he was a woman of any color, he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept.

With typical callousness, Shrillary threw Ferraro under the bus. She took the opportunity to prove she would not tolerate such thought crimes by excommunicating the former VP candidate from her campaign.

Now Bob Johnson, founder of the outlandishly racist Black Entertainment Television says:

What I believe Geraldine Ferraro meant is that if you take a freshman senator from Illinois called "Jerry Smith" and he says I'm going to run for president, would he start off with 90 percent of the black vote? And the answer is, probably not…
Geraldine Ferraro said it right. The problem is, Geraldine Ferraro is white. This campaign has such a hair-trigger on anything racial … it is almost impossible for anybody to say anything.

Johnson also observed that Obama has the support of "the liberal media" — another obvious prerequisite to his success.

The response from that same liberal media was drowned out by the sound of crickets chirping in the distance.

What a privilege to be able to speak the truth without getting taken to the woodshed or worse. Of course, if you say something politically incorrect, you'll be ignored.

Why Jimmy Carter Prefers Dictatorships

Posted by Dave Blount at 12:06 PM

Here's one reason Jimmy Carter prefers dealing with dictatorships:

When I go to a dictatorship, I only have to talk to one person and that's the dictator, because he speaks for all the people. But in a democracy like Israel, there is a wide range of opinions and that counterbalances the disappointment that I have in not meeting with the people shaping Israeli power now in the government.

That is, in democracies like Israel, the government doesn't speak for the people, since it despises Carter too much to indulge him in his fantasy that he's conducting diplomacy. But the government does speak for the people in dictatorships, since these tend to be run by Carter's friends. I wonder how he reconciles this with his heroes Hamas having been democratically elected by the dysfunction terrorist society under control of the Palestinian Authority.

America is very resilient to have survived four years of this evil idiot in the White House.

Environmentalists Won't Even Allow Windmills

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:08 AM

Not even "green" energy tomfoolery like windmills can be pursued without opposition from moonbats:

The tiny, endangered Indiana bat lives on Shaffer Mountain in northeastern Somerset County and that should be enough to keep 30 big wind turbines off that ecologically sensitive Appalachian ridge, according to three environmental groups.

On behalf of their fellow bats, environmentalists will sue under the insidious Endangered Species Act. Supposedly bats, who use sonar to detect tiny flying insects as they swoop around at night pigging out on them, won't notice the 404-foot turbines — raising the danger that the bats could fly right into them, further flattening their noses.

At least Ted Kennedy wouldn't be able to see the turbines from his mansion.

Obviously any attempt to conduct human activity will be forestalled by environmentalists with their nuisance suits. Since there will be endless court battles anyway, power companies may as well stop goofing around with inefficient windmills and fight for the expanded drilling, refineries, and nuclear plants we need to grow and thrive.

The Quotable Obama Nation

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:22 AM

Right Wing News has collected some informative quotes from Barack Obama and his inner circle of America-loathing, ultra-Left elitists. A few samples:

Barack Obama:
And if that child should ever get the chance to travel the world and someone should ask her where is she from, we believe that she should always be able to hold her head high with pride in her voice when she answers, "I am an American." That is the course we seek. That is the change we are calling for.
Barack Obama:
I had learned not to care. I blew a few smoke rings, remembering those years. Pot had helped, and booze; maybe a little blow when you could afford it.
Barack Obama:
It was usually an effective tactic, another one of those tricks I had learned: (White) People were satisfied so long as you were courteous and smiled and made no sudden moves. They were more than satisfied, they were relieved — such a pleasant surprise to find a well-mannered young black man who didn't seem angry all the time.
Barack Obama:
The point I was making was not that Grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn't. But she is a typical white person…
Jeremiah 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 d*mn America, that's in the Bible for killing innocent people. God d*mn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God d*mn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme.
Jeremiah Wright:
In the 21st century, white America got a wake-up call after 9/11/01. White America and the western world came to realize that people of color had not gone away, faded into the woodwork or just "disappeared" as the Great White West kept on its merry way of ignoring black concerns.
Barack Obama:
What I value most about Pastor Wright is not his day-to-day political advice. He's much more of a sounding board for me to make sure that I am speaking as truthfully about what I believe as possible and that I'm not losing myself in some of the hype and hoopla and stress that's involved in national politics.
Michelle Obama:
(America is) just downright mean.
Michelle Obama:
The truth is, in order to get things like universal health care and a revamped education system, then someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more.

…and of course O'Bigot's latest hit single:

Barack Obama:
You got into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton Administration, and the Bush Administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.

Since I don't want Obama's old friend who helped launch his political career to feel left out, I've added a couple more:

Bill Ayers:
Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, Kill your parents.
Bill Ayers on September 11, 2001:
I don't regret setting bombs. I feel we didn't do enough.

Obama has done a fair job of keeping his views hidden behind a smokescreen of vacuous platitudes. It would be appalling to think many of his supporters even know what they are.

Susan Sarandon:
So I think (Obama) definitely has convinced people that he stands for change and for hope, and I can't wait to see what he stands for.

My hope is they don't have to find out the hard way.

The sea level rise will allegedly occur due to the "rapid melting of ice sheets." However, the Beebsters admit they don't even know whether ice on the whole is really melting:

Mary Lefkowitz Defends Reality from Moonbattery

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:43 AM

Kudos to Mary Lefkowitz, for standing up for truth against the politically correct lies that have been supplanting it in the increasingly bizarre realm of academia. Her new book History Lesson describes the ordeal she went through after attempting to defend factual reality from the bogus Afrocentrism movement, which rewrites history so that blacks built the pyramids and influenced classical Greek culture.

From a review in today's Wall Street Journal:

She concluded that the Afrocentric authors regarded history as a form of advocacy: Like other postmodernists, they believed that truth is impossible to know — that all "narratives" are socially constructed and thus possess an equal claim to legitimacy. At the time, traditional scholarship was generally under assault, but the classics were particularly vulnerable, because they purported to study the foundational texts of the West. Attacking the classics as a complex system of lies was emotionally important to those who wanted to take Western culture down a peg. Feelings and politics mattered, not scholarship. As Ms. Lefkowitz puts it: "[Bernal] seemed to be saying that the most persuasive narrative was the one with the most desirable result. In effect, he was preaching a kind of affirmative action program for the rewriting of history."

Martin Bernal is the author of a collection of preposterous Afrocentric lies entitled Black Athena. It represents what future generations will be taught instead of history if moonbattery triumphs.

Outraged by the nonscholarly approach of Afrocentric writers, she somewhat naïvely imagined that facts would put their extreme theories to rest. She noted, for instance, that Socrates couldn't have been black, as alleged, because his parents were Athenian citizens and blacks, in classical Athens, were not eligible for citizenship. She noted, as well, that Aristotle would have had a tough time stealing his philosophy from the library at Alexandria, since he died before the library was built. Such arguments went nowhere, Ms. Lefkowitz writes, with those who saw Greek philosophy "as yet another case of a colonialist European plundering of Africa."

To the Left, there is no objective truth, only ideology. Two plus two is five, if that's what dogma dictates.

It isn't enough for moonbats to corrupt our institutions, to steal our freedoms, to cripple our economy. They want to obliterate the factual reality upon which our civilization is based. Thankfully a few people like Mary Lefkowitz are still putting up resistance.

E.U. Claims Biofuel Farce Is Not a Crime Against Humanity

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:27 AM

Tough luck for the unwashed brown people who have to go without food so that elitist moonbats can congratulate themselves on the political correctness of the biofuels boondoggle:

The EU Commission on Monday rejected claims that producing biofuels is a "crime against humanity" that threatens food supplies, and vowed to stick to its goals as part of a climate change package.

Unfortunately, food shortages are real. E.U. bureauweenies live in the dimension of things that are not real, like global warming. In addition to causing food shortages, biofuels are inefficient, have no beneficial effect on the environment, and are causing the destruction of rainforests to produce palm oil. But those facts are real too, and therefore of no concern to the folks running the E.U. — and so the massive subsidies for biofuels, extracted from hapless taxpayers, will continue.

But there's some good news for hungry Third-Worlders: President Bush wants to alleviate the problem he helped cause by pushing biofuels. The solution is the usual: hand out more of our money.

Asked what he could reasonably accomplish for the gay community as president, Obama said he can "reasonably see" repeal of the "don't ask, don't tell" policy as well as signing legislation to ban workplace discrimination against gays.

He wants this to apply to "transgendered" freakazoids too.

Repealing "don't ask, don't tell" would mean forcibly imposing homosexuality on the armed forces. The effect on morale of a left-wing gerbil like Obama trying to turn the military into a San Francisco bathhouse should be obvious. Further, there would be functional problems, including the spread of disease, and the fact that anyone who didn't get the promotion they wanted, or didn't like getting yelled at during boot camp, could sue for discrimination after claiming to be gay.

As for banning workplace discrimination, this in effect means that homosexuals cannot be fired or refused promotions without the risk of crippling litigation. It establishes homosexuals — and potentially the transgendered, i.e., weirdos who pretend to be of the opposite sex — as superior citizens, with superior rights.

That certainly ought to be enough to get Obama the rainbow vote.

Meanwhile, all McCain offers conservatives is vague assurances that he'll try not to kick our teeth too far down our throats. But at least he isn't Obama.

Guess the Party Affiliation

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:25 PM

See if you can guess Texas State Rep. Borris Miles's party affiliation after reading this news report:

HOUSTON — An arrest warrant was issued on Monday for state Rep. Borris Miles, accused of deadly conduct, KPRC Local 2 reported. A Harris County assistant district attorney said that Miles was indicted in connection with two incidents in December where Miles was accused of pulling out a gun in a threatening manner. A Houston woman and her husband filed suit against Miles earlier this year, asking that he be tested for sexually transmitted diseases and claiming he forced a kiss on the woman at a holiday party. The Harris County District Attorney's Office investigated the complaint that Miles entered a St. Regis Hotel ballroom uninvited, confronting guests, displaying a pistol and forcibly kissing the woman. He is also accused of pulling a gun on a TSU regent's wife at a Rockets game at the Toyota Center the same night.

If you haven't guessed his affiliation yet, here's a giant clue: the news report doesn't say.

Another clue — he's been in the news before:

A state lawmaker who opposed a bill giving Texans stronger right to defend themselves with deadly force pulled a gun and shot a man he says was trying to steal copper wiring from a construction site, police said Monday.

The gunslinging Miles opposed the castle doctrine, which holds that no one has a duty to retreat from intruders in their own homes rather than use deadly force.

Obscene German Opera Laughs at 9/11

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:10 AM

German composer Karlheinz Stockhausen famously described the Muslim atrocities of 9/11 as "the greatest work of art ever." Now some other members of the German creative community are commemorating the event with art of their own:

A German opera house is to unveil a provocative new production staged in the ruins of New York's World Trade Centre. It features naked pensioners and Mickey Mouse masks, Hitler salutes and Elvis impersonators.
The self-consciously outrageous September 11th staging of Verdi's 'A Masked Ball' has been dreamed up by Austrian director Johann Kresnik. He has described the concoction as a populist critique of modern American society, aimed at showing up the disparities between rich and poor[…] though the production looks unlikely to win many prizes for the nuance of its message, Mr Kresnik has succeeded in his other aim, selling out the Erfurt opera house for the premiere.

Come on, Germans. You lost the war. Grow up and get over it.

O'Bigot: Sorry You're Too Stupid to Get It

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:40 AM

By now you've heard Barack Obama's open-minded views on small town America:

[I]t's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.

That is, anyone in favor of the Second Amendment, Christianity, or defending the borders from foreign invasion is just acting out in frustration at being a yokel loser. Plus, unlike enlightened practitioners of black liberation theology, they're all bigots.

But before you go thinking that Obama is some kind of narrow-minded, elitist jerk, here's the apology he issued when he got the word he'd put his foot in his mouth.

[O]bviously, if I worded things in a way that made people offended, I deeply regret that. The underlying truth of what I said remains, which is simply that people who have seen their way of life upended because of economic distress are frustrated and rightfully so.

Michael Goldfarb comments:

What a horrible non-apology. The wording was offensive, as was the "underlying truth." Also, this only addresses the bitterness part of the statement, the least offensive part. What about the implication that white folks seek refuge from economic distress in an irrational embrace of the Second Amendment? Or that unlike Obama, who came by his black liberation theology oh so honestly, the hicks of middle America come to their religion out of fear and xenophobia. I'd think a really different kind of politician would man up and take his lumps.

Once again, Obama shores up support from his base: an alliance of racist blacks who want to stick it to Whitey, and latte liberal snobs who hate all those little people in flyover country.

Alicia Keys Promises to Spread Message of Anti-Caucasian Race Hate

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:00 AM

Barack O'Bigot can count on the vote of zillionaire entertainer and fellow oppressed mulatto Alicia Keys, who sounds remarkably like Obama's spiritual mentor Jeremiah Wright as she explains how the white man created gangsta rap to convince blacks to kill each other.

Keys also reveals that the homicidal feud between the thugs Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. was driven "by the government and the media, to stop another great black leader from existing." Keys praises cop-killing Black Panther sociopath Huey Newton, lamenting that if he'd "had the outlets our musicians have today, it[anti-Caucasian race hate]'d be global. I have to figure out a way to do it myself."

The career of a white entertainer who promised to spread the message of the KKK would be over instantly. That's certainly fair, since as any black supremacist could tell you, only white people are racist.

Christians Sued for Not Participating in Homosexual Ceremony

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:25 AM

Some of us imagine we're self-employed, but we all have the same employer: the Government. We keep only as much of our earnings as it allows us to keep, and we do our jobs in accordance with its orders. A case in point:

The state of New Mexico has ordered a family owned photography company to pay more than $6,600 for declining a demand to take pictures at a same-sex ceremony, and a lawyer who is working on an appeal says it is an example of how "non-discrimination" or "hate" laws can be weapons in the hands of homosexual activists.

The Christian photographers who refused to participate in the depraved ceremony were forced to pay a litigious lesbian $6,637.94.

To advance its goal of increasing government dependency by undermining the traditional family, the establishment promotes homosexuality. You will assist in this promotion as required. Dereliction of this duty will be regarded as "discrimination" and punished accordingly.

Media Already Swinging Back to Global Cooling Hysteria

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:39 AM

Hold onto your wallets; the government has only just begun to loot us in the name of global warming, and already media propagandists are veering back to global cooling — where they were in the 1970s.

While policymakers have worried long and hard about global warming, which might raise Earth's temperature 1.4 to 5.8 degrees C by century's end, a growing body of evidence suggests natural forces could just as easily plunge Earth's average temperatures downward.

Having at last figured out that they have no idea what the weather will do more than a few days down the road, MSM alarmists are hedging their bets:

The possibility of a sudden freeze doesn't mean mankind can relax efforts to curb global warming, many scientists warn. Indeed, given the complexity of Earth's climate, human activities that spew greenhouse gases into the atmosphere may increase the potential for an abrupt cooling.

The one constant is change, so the hoaxers are now on firm ground. Whatever the weather does, we will have caused it with our wicked industrialized, capitalist ways. Only when we embrace Pol Pot's dream of agrarian socialism will the climate at last be constant.

Here's something I bet you didn't know: Dick Cavett is still alive. Age and irrelevance have not improved him. Here he is attempting to ridicule General David Petraeus's hard-earned decorations on the pages of the same New York Times that ran the infamous General Betray Us ad the last time Petraeus reported on our progress in Iraq:

I can't look at Petraeus — his uniform ornamented like a Christmas tree with honors, medals and ribbons — without thinking of the great Mort Sahl at the peak of his brilliance. He talked about meeting General Westmoreland in the Vietnam days. Mort, in a virtuoso display of his uncanny detailed knowledge — and memory — of such things, recited the lengthy list ("Distinguished Service Medal, Croix de Guerre with Chevron, Bronze Star, Pacific Campaign" and on and on), naming each of the half-acre of decorations, medals, ornaments, campaign ribbons and other fripperies festooning the general's sternum in gaudy display. Finishing the detailed list, Mort observed, "Very impressive!" Adding, "If you're twelve."

Try to imagine Cavett or any of his Gray Lady facilitators earning so much as a Girl Scouts ribbon.

Now Piracy Is a Human Right

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:14 PM

There was a time when the British Navy civilized the high seas. In the nineteenth century, it all but eradicated piracy and the slave trade. That was then; thanks to moonbattery, this is now:

The Royal Navy, once the scourge of brigands on the high seas, has been told by the Foreign Office not to detain pirates because doing so may breach their human rights. Warships patrolling pirate-infested waters, such as those off Somalia, have been warned that there is also a risk that captured pirates could claim asylum in Britain.

Gasps Conservative MP Julian Brazier:

These people commit horrendous offences. The solution is not to turn a blind eye but to turn them over to the local authorities. The convention on human rights quite rightly doesn't cover the high seas. It's a pathetic indictment of what our legal system has come to.

But local authorities might be Muslim, and punish the pirates harshly. Best just to let them inflict their mayhem, while liberal bureaucrats crouch in the corner and chew their fingernails.

At least for now there are no orders to escort the cutthroats to Britain to collect free housing and welfare checks.

In an attempt to retain some credibility, Emanuel is now backing away from his hysterical claim that global warming will cause a plague of hurricanes. Now he says there will be a reduction in the number of hurricanes over the next two centuries.

However, no one has disproved predictions by USA Today that global warming will cause giant snakes to invade America.

Phoenix Mayor Sics Feds on Sheriff Joe for Enforcing Immigration Law

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:26 PM

Phil Gordon, the damp rodent posing as Mayor of Phoenix, has it in for legendary Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who insists on enforcing the law, even if it means slowing down the Mexican conquest of Arizona by throwing illegal aliens in jail where they belong. Since Filmstrip Phil would have to stand on his own slumped shoulders to look Sheriff Joe in the naval, he's had to call in reinforcements:

PHOENIX - The mayor wants the FBI to investigate whether the local county sheriff has violated any civil rights laws with his recent high-profile crackdowns on illegal immigrants. […] In an April 4 letter to U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey, Mayor Phil Gordon asked the agency and the Justice Department's civil rights division to examine what he called discriminatory harassment and improper stops, searches, and arrests by sheriff's deputies in Maricopa County, which encompasses the metropolitan area.

Snivels Gordon:

Over the past few weeks, Sheriff Arpaio's actions have infringed on the civil rights of our residents. They have put our residents' well-being, and the well-being of law enforcement officers, at risk.

The latter lie is particularly unconscionable, in light of the deaths of Phoenix police officers like Nick Erfle and Marc Atkinson, who were gunned down by the illegal aliens. They might be alive today if Joe Arpaio wasn't the only one trying to stem the invasion.

Hopefully Phil's attempts to tattle to Mommy Washington will result in nothing more than egg on his repulsively squishy face. ICE officials confirm that Sheriff Joe has been acting in accordance with a formal agreement he has with their office that allows his deputies to enforce immigration laws. They certainly won't be enforced by Jack Harris, Gordon's moonbat toady of a police chief.

Terrorists Continue Activities from within British Jails

Posted by Dave Blount at 11:45 AM

One of the great advantages Muslims have in fighting an adversary that doesn't really want to win is that even if they get caught, they can continue to conduct their terrorist activities from behind bars. They don't even need to enlist left-wing lawyers like Lynne Stewart to assist them; all they need is easily smuggled mobile phones:

Terror suspects held at one of Britain's most secure jails are secretly accessing the internet to contact their supporters. The discovery raises fears that some of the UK's most dangerous terrorists could be plotting new attacks from inside prison.

About 3,500 mobile phones were confiscated from British prisoners last year. Looks like they missed a few.

Even Boston Globe Can See through Biofuel Boondoggle

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:53 AM

Time to get my eyes checked; I thought I saw something reasonable in the Boston Globe:

Corn should be used for food, not motor fuel, and yet the United States is committed to a policy that encourages farmers to turn an increasing amount of their crop into ethanol. This may save the nation a bit of the cost of imported oil, but it increases global-warming gases and contributes to higher food prices […] Ethanol consumes almost a quarter of US corn production. The energy self-sufficiency that all the candidates seek should not come at the expense of the environment or the food supply.

Even liberals gullible enough to believe in the phantom menace of "greenhouse gases" can see through the biofuel charade. But that won't make it go away:

Candidates for president need to tell Americans the truth about ethanol, but they are falling over themselves in pursuit of the farm belt vote. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton want more ethanol factories built than even President Bush envisaged when he called for 15 percent of US gasoline consumption to be replaced by alternative fuels by 2017. John McCain, who correctly called the ethanol push a boondoggle in 2000, now says that it is "a very important way to achieve energy independence."

If anyone in Washington were interested in energy independence, they would be remove the senseless restrictions that prevent us from drilling for our own oil, and building new refineries and nuclear plants. Like most everything promoted by the clowns running for president, biofuel is a dumb idea backed for unscrupulous motives.

There's a thin line between cynical and evil; senselessly taking food off the market in a time of shortages crosses it.

What Moonbattery Has Done to Britain

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:57 PM

Eleanor Mills tells Sunday Times readers of a bus ride with her daughter:

Suddenly there was a kerfuffle among the packed-in bodies by the doors. From the shouts, it seemed that a middle-aged white guy had stepped on a young black man’s foot. The bus stopped and as the doors opened, the young guy started punching the older man in the head. He wrestled him off the bus, kicked him to the ground and left him there. Calmly he got back on the bus.
Silence fell. My daughter looked at me anxiously. I hugged her and whispered not to worry, but when I looked up I inadvertently caught the thug’s eye. “What you f****** looking at?” he yelled. I cast my eyes down quickly, glad that there were many bodies rammed in between me and him. No one moved, said or did anything. We all tried, desperately, to mind our own business. The bus continued on. About three stops later he got off. The chatter resumed as if nothing had happened.
I don’t think that bus was full of cowards. We were just realists. We read the papers, we know the story about the man who got stabbed on a bus for asking a young guy to stop throwing chips at his girlfriend. The reality of the level of violence among a particular subsection of society is such that sometimes it’s just not safe to intervene any more. I didn’t want to be a hero if death could be the consequence. I just wanted to get home from a day out with my daughter with both of us in one piece. Like everyone else on that bus.

Not long ago, a generation of heroes saved Britain from the Nazis. The grandchildren of these heroes are now turning the country over to Third-World savages pouring in to collect welfare benefits. A more horrific tragedy would be difficult to imagine.

Costs Explode for Government-Run Healthcare in Taxachusetts

Posted by Dave Blount at 10:28 AM

Special thanks to Massachusetts, for warning us what's in store for the rest of the country if we let Democrats impose socialized medicine.

The state that gave us Ted Kennedy and John Kerry also features the most comprehensive government-imposed healthcare plan in the nation. Individuals are penalized for not having insurance, as are businesses that don't provide it to employees. Those below the poverty line get it on someone else's dime; even those making three times the poverty level can get subsidized.

How nice; another hyped crisis fixed by Big Government. But:

Two years after the state's landmark health law was signed, the cracks are starting to show. Costs are soaring and Massachusetts lawmakers are weighing a dollar-a-pack hike in the state's cigarette tax to help pay for a larger-than-expected enrollment in the law's subsidized insurance plans.

It remains to be seen whether smokers can be forced to carry the healthcare system on their backs. In the meantime, costs seem likely to top $1 billion.

Governor Coupe Deval bleats that "at least we are trying."

That's the problem. If government didn't try to do more than the Founding Fathers meant it to do, we could look at the future without wincing.

Barack O'Bigot's Church of Afro-Nazism

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:10 AM

black-theology-black-power.jpgKathy Shaidle offers some insight into the bizarre and menacing race-based ideology Barack Obama has steeped himself in for the last 20 years. As made clear by his mentor Jeremiah Wright, Obama's church adheres to the Black Liberation Theology beliefs of James Cone:

Like the pro-communist liberation theology that swept Central America in the 1980s and was repeatedly condemned by Pope John Paul II, Black Liberation Theology combines warmed-over 1960s vintage Marxism with carefully distorted biblical passages. However, in contrast to traditional Marxism, it emphasizes race rather than class. The Christian notion of "salvation" in the afterlife is superseded by "liberation" on earth, courtesy of the establishment of a socialist utopia.
The leading theorist of Black Liberation Theology is James Cone. Overtly racist, Cone's writings posit a black Jesus who leads African-Americans as the "chosen people." In Cone's cosmology, whites are "the devil," and "all white men are responsible for white oppression." Cone makes this point without ambiguity: "This country was founded for whites and everything that has happened in it has emerged from the white perspective," Cone has written. "What we need is the destruction of whiteness, which is the source of human misery in the world."
If whiteness stands for all that is evil, blackness symbolizes all that is good. "Black theology," says Cone, "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." Small wonder that some critics have condemned black liberation theology as "racist idolatry" and "Afro-Nazism."
Furthermore, according to Cone, "black values" are superior to American values. Sure enough, the "About Us" statement on Trinity's web page includes the following Cone-inspired declaration: "We are an African people, and remain 'true to our native land,' the mother continent, the cradle of civilization."
It is troubling that Barack Obama's closest friends and allies subscribe to an explicitly racist doctrine. Even more worrying is that the main exponent of Black Liberation Theology sees Obama as a kindred spirit. In the wake of the controversy surrounding Obama's pastor and Church, Cone said: "I've read both of Barack Obama's books, and I heard the speech [on race]. I don't see anything in the books or in the speech that contradicts black liberation theology."

A Caucasian American voting for Obama would be the equivalent of a Jew voting for Hitler.

Australian Paper Banned Criticism of Idiot Hour

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:05 AM

Even the lefties at Australia's The Age are getting fed up with being ordered to limit their reporting to propaganda that supports the global warming hoax.

The liberal paper's parent company Fairfax Media teamed up with the antihuman loons at the World Wildlife Fund to promote the guffaw-inducing Earth Hour PR campaign, which featured such absurd gestures as Google using a black background and The Age printing its Sunday edition an hour late. Age reporters were commanded to participate by not saying anything critical of the whole farce; to their credit, they resented it.

At a meeting on the editorial floor with editor-in-chief Andrew Jaspan, the natives got restless:

Some staff were openly hostile towards Jaspan, and at times interjected as he spoke. At a subsequent stop-work meeting, staff passed a resolution saying recent developments had undermined the separation between commercial considerations and editorial independence.
In a statement accompanying the resolution, staff said the Earth Hour partnership placed basic journalistic principles in jeopardy: "Reporters were pressured not to write negative stories and story topics followed a schedule drafted by Earth Hour organisers."

It's nice to know someone in the MSM still remembers the concept of basic journalistic principles.

British Court Backs Al Qaeda

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:56 AM

Abu Qatada, regarded as Osama bin Laden's "Ambassador to Europe," will have plenty of leisure time to pursue his extensive terrorist activities, now that the quisling moonbats ruling Britain have granted him a lifetime supply of free milk from the taxpayer teat.

Due to an insane ruling from the Court of Appeal, Qatada will soon be released from his high-security prison. Then he'll be eligible for £1,000 per month in welfare benefits.

Taxpayers also get to pay a fortune to keep him under 24-hour surveillance. Since hanging him would make too much sense to be feasible, and he can't be kept incarcerated, it might be nice to deport him back to his native Jordan. But no: the gibbering lunatics who run the courts in Britain have declared that would be a violation of his "human rights."

The ruling could effectively be overturned by the House of Lords. But then Qatada could just appeal to the moonbatty European Court of Human Rights, which is hardly likely to side with Western Civilization against al Qaeda.

Moonbat Quote of the Week

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:20 AM

Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-WV), on John McCain, who spent 5 1/2 years in communist custody during the Vietnam War, being tortured on a regular basis at the Hanoi Hilton on behalf of his country while scum like John Kerry propagandized for the enemy:

McCain was a fighter pilot, who dropped laser-guided missiles from 35,000 feet. He was long gone when they hit. What happened when they get to the ground? He doesn't know. You have to care about the lives of people.

Despite not caring about the lives of people, when the communists found out McCain was the son of an admiral and offered him release, he refused in a gesture of solidarity with his fellow prisoners, setting himself up for even more brutal treatment for defying his captors.

Unsurprisingly, Rockefeller supports Barack Obama, who is also endorsed by Jane Fonda, seen here flirting with the crew of an NVA anti-aircraft gun that could have shot down McCain's plane:

Antinatalism: Environmentalism's Ultimate Solution

Barbara Kay comments on the shockingly evil strain of environmentalism that takes the antihumanism of the whole green movement to its unnatural conclusion by calling on people to stop having children:

Anti-natalists are gentler exterminators than Nazis. No gassings, no ovens, just ideology induced suicide. The perfect world of the Nazis was judenrein — free of Jews. The ideal world of antinatalists like Watson is menschenrein — people-free.

Minnesota Taxpayers Fund Public Madrasa

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:04 AM

Katherine Kersten reports on what Minnesota taxpayers are financing at the public charter school Tarek ibn Ziyad Academy (TIZA):

TIZA has many characteristics that suggest a religious school. It shares the headquarters building of the Muslim American Society of Minnesota, whose mission is "establishing Islam in Minnesota." The building also houses a mosque. TIZA's executive director, Asad Zaman, is a Muslim imam, or religious leader, and its sponsor is an organization called Islamic Relief.
Students pray daily, the cafeteria serves halal food — permissible under Islamic law — and "Islamic Studies" is offered at the end of the school day.

Teachers' duties include the "ritual washing" of children in preparation for Islamic rituals. Testifies substitute teacher Amanda Getz:

The prayer I saw was not voluntary. The kids were corralled by adults and required to go to the assembly where prayer occurred.

No word on whether TIZA covers bomb-making in Arts & Crafts class. As for the wall of separation between church and state schools, that only applies to infidels.

Moonbats Blame Insanity on Global Warming

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:50 AM

There isn't much that moonbats won't try to blame on the nonexistent global warming crisis — including their own well-documented and apparently worsening mental problems:

"Psychosocial illnesses are a part of the various health issues associated with climate change," Poonam Khetrapal Singh, Deputy Regional Director, WHO, said.

WHO, the World Health Organization, is part of the corrupt and pernicious U.N., #1 worldwide promoter of the insidious global warming hoax.

Considering that it hasn't gotten any warmer since 1998, moonbats may soon have to confess that there unfortunately is no global warming, manmade or otherwise. But they'll have a ready excuse for years of telling lies about the weather: global warming baked their brains, causing them to have delusions that there is such a thing as global warming.

Jimmy Carter Plans to Schmooze with Hamas

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:21 AM

Jimmy "the Dhimmi" Carter is still conducting his absurd and despicable shadow presidency, with plans to visit the hostile dictatorship Syria, where apparently he will meet with Khaled Meshal, exiled leader of the terror group Hamas.

Former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton comments:

It's about par for the course from President Carter, demonstrating a lack of judgment typical of what he does. To go to Syria to visit Hamas at this point is just an ill-timed, ill-advised decision on his part.

Steve Emerson of the Investigative Project on Terrorism also finds it typical:

I'm not surprised that Carter would do this, as he has been supporting Palestinian extremism for many years.

The objective: to undermine the Bush Administration's policy of isolating Hamas, in hopes of weakening sanctions against the vicious terrorist organization.

Ibrahim Hooper of Hamas's American PR wing CAIR confirms Carter's pernicious motives with some oily gibbering about how the Dhimmi is a true partner for peace — i.e., a committed enemy of the USA, Israel, and non-Muslims in general.

Soon people like Carter could be in charge of our foreign policy again. To get an idea of what this will entail, recall that Iran was a civilized country allied with the USA before Carter's moonbatty policies helped create the current situation.

Obama Delegate Liquidated for Accidental Thought Crime

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:23 AM

Linda Ramirez-Sliwinski, an elected Obama delegate to the Democratic National Convention, was told to step down after she asked some kids to quit playing in a tree next to her house "like monkeys." Coincidentally the kids were black, elevating her innocent words to a thought crime, for which she was actually ticketed by local authorities in Carpentersville, Illinois. Soon afterwards, Obama Inc. threw her under the bus.

Ramirez-Sliwinski's crime was "divisive and unacceptable," according to an organization that wants the country run by a guy who believes that God hates white people. If you think you have to watch every word that comes out of your mouth now, wait for the reign of totalitarian moonbattery that awaits us under an Obama regime. No doubt using the word "denigrate" will result in a prison sentence.

Rules May Be Bent for Muslim Sex Offenders

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:00 AM

Laws are for infidels; the Muslims displacing them from Britain answer to a higher authority:

Muslim sex offenders could be allowed to opt out of a treatment programme being run by the Prison Service because it is against their religion.
The service's Muslim adviser, Ahtsham Ali, said there is a "legitimate Islamic position" that criminals should not discuss their crimes with others, as required in the Sex Offender Treatment Programme. […]
A Prison Service spokeswoman said that the next set of rules for the Sex Offender Treatment Programme would be sensitive to the needs of different faiths. "We are currently seeking to ensure that the policy for the Sex Offender Treatment Programme is sensitive to the diversity of religions within the prison context," she said.

If talking about your crime is a condition of early release, but is against Islamic ways, Muslims could have to stay in jail longer — constituting discrimination from the point of view of the dhimmified moonbats running Britain.

Too bad committing sex crimes in the first place isn't against their religion. Unfortunately, Muslims worship a pedophile who advocated rape.

The Difference between Giving and Taking

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:38 AM

Liberals are fond of sanctimoniously casting themselves as selflessly concerned about the plight of the less fortunate. Like everything from the Left that doesn't directly relate to a boot stamping on a human face, the pose is fake. George Will passes along a few facts from Arthur Brooks' book Who Really Cares: The Surprising Truth About Compassionate Conservatism:

Although liberal families' incomes average 6 percent higher than those of conservative families, conservative-headed households give, on average, 30 percent more to charity than the average liberal-headed household ($1,600 per year vs. $1,227).
Conservatives also donate more time and give more blood.
Residents of the states that voted for John Kerry in 2004 gave smaller percentages of their incomes to charity than did residents of states that voted for George Bush.
Bush carried 24 of the 25 states where charitable giving was above average.
In the 10 reddest states, in which Bush got more than 60 percent majorities, the average percentage of personal income donated to charity was 3.5. Residents of the bluest states, which gave Bush less than 40 percent, donated just 1.9 percent.
People who reject the idea that "government has a responsibility to reduce income inequality" give an average of four times more than people who accept that proposition.

Only with an election coming up are liberal candidates Barack O'Bigot and Shrillary Rotten ostentatiously ramping up their charitable giving. From 1998 through 2006, limousine leftist Obama gave $150,000 to charity, much of it to his mentor Jeremiah Wright's repugnant Church of Anti-American Race Hate. With everyone looking, he shelled out $240,000 last year — not so much giving, as buying public relations. Likewise, the Clintons started giving big a year ago — mainly to their own foundation, which isn't passing along the money. But they'll eagerly give $billions, once they get their hands on the federal purse.

The moral difference between giving your own money and giving someone else's money is as vast as the difference between right and wrong.

As often happens, pro-life demonstrators were set upon by belligerent moonbats. One Keith Sterkeson — apparently a friend of the abortion mill's owner, Wayne Webster — was particularly candid in his progressive views. A small exerpt:

Cameraman asks: Do you support abortion rights, sir?
Keith: I support what the fuckin' law says we can fuckin' do and the law says we can kill your fuckin' kids. That's what the law says.
Cameraman: Why do you support that?
Keith: (pointing to the chimney on an out building) That's where they burn the babies.
Cameraman zooms in on a chimney and asks, that chimney there?

Scientists Discover That Boys Will Be Boys

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:52 AM

The moonbat campaign to prissify the next generation by forbidding boys from playing with toy guns may be doomed to failure. Dr. Kim Wallen and colleagues at the Yerkes National Primate Research Center in Atlanta found that even among monkeys, boys prefer boys' toys, polysexual political correctness be damned:

Their conclusion contradicts those of the dominant psychological theory that the preference of boys for vehicles and toy soldiers and that of girls for dolls is down to social rather than innate influences.

Similar results have been found for vervet monkeys. A study of toy preferences among the offspring of latte liberals awaits funding.

Postmodern Moonbat History

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:31 PM

What postmodernism has done to art, moonbattery has begun to do to history. Some educators are advancing their goal of deconstructing reality by teaching our kids that Arabs beat Columbus to America:

[T]he Middle East Policy Council published a 540-page book called Arab World Studies Notebook, a teacher's guide for presenting Arab culture to young American students. The text, published five years ago, has a two-page chapter entitled, "Early Muslim Exploration Worldwide: Evidence of Muslims In the New World Before Columbus." The text says Arab Muslim explorers were here in America before Columbus, and married Algonquin Indians. These early marriages produced descendents who, by the 17th century, became Algonquin chiefs, like "Abdul-Rahim and Abdallah Ibn Malik."

As you might expect, these fantasies are the creation of the Muslim wing of our moonbat fifth column:

The author and editor of Arab World Studies Notebook is Audrey Park Shabbas, the Teacher Workshop Leader of MEPC's impressive educational program for grades 7-12. Shabbas, a Muslim convert and zealot, is a career advocate of Arabic culture. Executive Director of Arab World And Islamic Resources since 1995, she tirelessly champions the Arab Muslim "cause" in America.

Once again we see that moonbat propagandists have been reading their George Orwell:

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

This is why education has to be taken out of the hands of moonbats, while we still have a future, and while the past is still something that really happened.

Californian Nailed for Thought Crime

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:43 AM

Always on the cutting edge of moonbattery, California brings us the Mother of All Frivolous Discrimination Lawsuits. Dan Bader describes his case:

The State of California Department of Fair Employment & Housing filed a discrimination suit against me on behalf of the non-profit, Fair Housing Council Corporation of Orange County (FHCOC). Without any forewarning, the FHCOC filed a formal complaint with the State in October 2006 after purportedly viewing an 8 word phrase in a rental ad I posted on Craigslist.com.
The Council alleged that the phrase violated State & Federal laws against discriminatory advertising on the basis of familial status and demanded $4,000 in damages plus 5 years of continuing landlord education to be taken through the FHCOC and at an additional expense to me. This private, HUD funded non-profit corporation proclaimed that it — the corporation — was damaged by the 8 word phrase I used in my ad. No individual complained and is the "aggrieved party" in the lawsuit. The civil lawsuit was filed by the State of California's attorney, Ralph Tsong, Esq., in OC Superior Court on Nov. 30, 2007 and is seeking "unlimited damages."
The alleged discriminatory phrase I used in the body of the rental ad for my attached 480 sq. ft. mother-in-law unit was:
"Well suited for 1 or 2 professional adults"

Authorities found this phrase unacceptable on the grounds that it could be construed to discriminate against tenants with children, or else it discriminates against young people.

We have reached the ideal condition for a totalitarian society, where any statement, no matter how benign, can be considered a thought crime. Since we all constantly transgress, there is nothing for us to do but crouch in terror, hoping the authorities don't notice our guilt-ridden existences.

Absolut Reconquista Fallout

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:02 AM

Michelle Malkin has been collecting some of the fallout from Absolut's extremely ill-advised Reconquista ad campaign.

Here's a great letter that was emailed to Absolut suits in Sweden:

Absolut -
I run a bar in Pt. Richmond, California - where the Kaiser Liberty Ships were built during WWII. After seeing your ad Campaign where you show a western map of the United States in which California is part of Mexico again, I’ve decided to do the following…
1) Never carry Absolut. Ever.
2) Lower the price of Ketel One vodka to $2 a shot indefinitely to build loyalty.
3) Print a copy of your ad and put it above the Ketel One drink special.
4) Tell all my friends and family what Absolut thinks of the United States of America and our right to enforce border laws.
I am on the front line of illegal immigration and its effects. Where are you? Oh yes, Sweden.
Good riddance.
Sincerely,

When Is a Hate Crime Not a Hate Crime?

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:02 AM

Question: How do you know when a brutal, pointless killing isn't a hate crime?

Answer: When the victim is a white guy, killed by blacks.

In the City of Brotherly Love, Sean Patrick Conroy, "known for his gentle, easygoing nature," was beaten to death on a SEPTA platform in Center City on Wednesday afternoon by a gang of teenagers.

The attack has been characterized as "random." According to Homicide Captain Michael Costello:

We have no reason why this occurred. We don't believe it was a robbery. Despite the speculation, there is absolutely no indication that it was any type of a hate crime.

The media is keeping a lid on the ethnicity of the killers, confirming what names like Ameer Best, Rasheem Bell, and Nashir Fisher would lead you to assume. Further confirmation comes from Keenan Jones, cofounder of Black Entrepreneurs and Rap United Together, who says he's worked with many of the killer teens involved, and lamely attempts to excuse their behavior.

If four whites publicly beat to death a "random" black, it would likely generate a little more concern.

Even Beeb Hedging on Global Warming Farce

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:58 AM

Even the BBC, among the most resolutely ideological left-wing propaganda outlets, is edging closer to admitting that global warming is a hoax:

Global temperatures will drop slightly this year as a result of the cooling effect of the La Nina current in the Pacific, UN meteorologists have said. The World Meteorological Organization's secretary-general, Michel Jarraud, told the BBC it was likely that La Nina would continue into the summer. This would mean global temperatures have not risen since 1998, prompting some to question climate change theory.

However:

But experts say we are still clearly in a long-term warming trend — and they forecast a new record high temperature within five years.

Sure. Just like the Beeb's "experts" predicted 2007 would be the "warmest year on record." Too bad it didn't turn out that way.

Why not just have experts predict that a massive asteroid will strike the Earth if we don't institute an international totalitarian socialist government by the end of the year?

German News Agency Allegedly Pays Arabs to Riot

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:28 AM

Archeologists have been trying to uncover priceless historical clues in Silwan, just east of the Old City in Jerusalem. They have been impeded in this endeavor by Arabs and Jewish moonbats who claim that excavations disturb the lives of the Muslim locals. According to Hussein Siyam, the Arab Mukhtar (elder) of Silwan, there are two groups pouring money in to keep the protests going:

The Committee for the Protection of Property in Silwan is a group that gets money from Arab states and the Palestinian Authority. And so, it is interested in spending that money on conflict.

That is, the money we pay for oil since moonbats won't let us extract our own, as well as Western aid to the Palestinians, is once again going toward making trouble. As for the other group, Siyam asserts:

A German news company recruits activists here and gives them money to make problems in order to report on them.

According to Arutz Sheva:

A German journalist […] conceded that local Arabs were hired by foreign agencies — conceivably able to get the news fastest because they are involved in producing it.

As an experiment, we might see if Palestinians would wreak less havoc if the West stopped paying them to do it.

More Moonbat History from Howard Zinn

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:02 AM

Just how evil is America, according to the propaganda being force-fed to students? Howard Zinn's new book A People's History of American Empire — fittingly released on April Fools Day — offers a clue. Here's a promotional video, narrated by Tinseltown limousine Leninist Viggo Mortensen:

Outside of Barack Obama's church, more heavy-handed anti-American propaganda would be hard to imagine. Zinn teaches us that America has been a blight on the world from our earliest days, that we were bad guys even as we stopped the Nazis, and that we brought the Muslim atrocities of 9/11 on ourselves.

What makes these sick ravings particularly appalling is that Zinn has had enormous influence over what is passed off as history in our schools. His vicious anti-American screed A People's History of the United States serves as the main text in many college history courses.

The goal of Zinn and other moonbat educators is straightforward: to brainwash future generations into sharing their violent hatred for America and everything it stands for, assuring our great nation's destruction by twisting it against itself. The popularity of Barack Obama among those barely old enough to vote is horrifying evidence that this campaign has been succeeding.

Two turbaned Sikhs have filed a human rights complaint against International Forest Products, saying a new hard hat policy is preventing them from returning to their jobs at a Delta sawmill.

This is pretty ignorant and pretty insensitive of the employer to bring such a policy. We are living in the 21st century. We are living in the hub of multiculturalism.

ACLU Jackals Want Prisons Run in Accordance with Islam

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:56 PM

Inch by inch, ACLU vermin will push us out of our own country with suits so absurd, we don't know how to defend ourselves. The latest example:

The American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit Thursday claiming that a Wyoming State Penitentiary policy restricting prisoners' mealtimes violates the constitutional rights of two Muslim inmates. […] At issue is an alleged "20-minute rule" requiring inmates to eat their meals within 20 minutes after the food is delivered to a cell or common dining area, the lawsuit said. The lawsuit seeks for the inmates to be exempted from the rule because it forces them to choose between eating and practicing their religion.

The dishes need to be collected so they can be washed in time for the next meal. But that's no excuse for not having the prison schedule properly coordinated so that it never catches a Muslim while he's praising his satanic god.

If these losers wanted to be free to rub their faces on the floor whenever they pleased, they should have obeyed the law so as to stay out of prison. But our laws are treated as a joke. Only our enemies' laws are offered respect.

This solicitude for the sanctity of religious practices comes from the ACLU, which never misses an opportunity to repress Christianity. The hypocrisy of these jackals will leave you gasping for breath.

Homosexual Propaganda Pulled from Schools to Please Muslims

Political correctness imposes some difficult choices. Given a conflict between homosexual militants and Muslims, which should be obeyed? In dhimmified Britain, the answer is Muslims.

The books King & King and And Tango Makes Three, openly intended to promote homosexuality among kids too young to even grasp such perversions, have been pulled from a pair of primary schools, despite Bristol City Council's assertion that they were there for the sake of complying with gay rights laws. So was a book/DVD entitled That's a Family!, devoted to mainstreaming the idea of homosexual parenthood.

Any decent person would be appalled to find these vile books in a school library. The educrat response has been the usual: tough luck, we're the masters, if you don't like it you're a homophobe.

Living the High Life with Barry O'Bigot

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:13 AM

Barack Obama may think that God hates white people, but he's very open-minded toward homosexuals — so much so that he was having sex with them while smoking crack cocaine as recently as November 1999, according to the affidavit (PDF) of one Lawrence W. Sinclair.

Obama has two bases: disgruntled blacks who want to stick it to Whitey, and self-hating latte liberals who want to help them do it. Revelations of his mentor Jeremiah Wright's rabid denunciations of Caucasians and America shored up his support from the first base. Allegations of homosexuality ought to do the same with the latter. Yet the mainstream media, which knows all about the affidavit, has been keeping a lid on it, as if they think they can keep moderates in the dark long enough to get Obama into the White House.

Larry Sinclair makes his allegations:

Sure, he probably made up the whole episode. But then again, maybe not. Why don't the enquiring minds in the MSM want to know?

Simply because my people are hungry is no justification to give them poison.

There may have been more to this than sanctimonious malice on Mwanawasa's part. If Zambians planted any of the corn, European bureauweenies might have regarded all of their corn as tainted by the evil of modern technology, closing off a potential export market.

Shrillary Was Fired for Lying and Unethical Behavior

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:41 PM

I'm guessing that when Shrillary applies for jobs, she doesn't bother listing Jerry Zeifman as a reference.

Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, was general counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee back in the early 1970s. His was the onerous task of supervising young Shrillary when she cut her teeth on the Watergate investigation.

He should have known he was in for trouble when Ms. Rotten was recommended by her law professor, Burke Marshall — who was Ted Kennedy's chief counsel for Chappaquiddick.

Appalled at her behavior, Zeifman fired her and refused to give her a letter of recommendation. He explains why:

Because she was a liar. She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.

Shrillary and some coconspirators tried to deny Nixon the right to counsel during the investigation, because they were afraid that if Watergate mastermind E. Howard Hunt were cross-examined, he would spill the beans about much more serious activities that took place under JFK. During her covert struggle to deny the President a very fundamental right, she wrote a fraudulent legal brief and confiscated public documents.

It does sound like the Shrillary Rotten we've come to know and loathe.

Oil Execs Hauled Before Politburo

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:11 AM

Marxist demagogues like Rep. Edward Markey (D-MA) spent April Fool's Day grilling oil executives on how they dare make a profit by providing us with the oil we need, and why the price of this limited commodity keeps rising with demand. They could have gotten a couple of answers just by visiting Lone Star Times:

The answers lie in the fact that lawmakers have placed too high of a hurdle on refiners and have stopped exploration in the U.S. In favor of growing freaking corn. Idiots.

In addition to the government-imposed restrictions and biofuel lunacy, there are also the steep taxes on gasoline. As usual, the government is the problem, not the solution. But trying to explain that to guys like Malarkey would be as futile as attempting to teach them the laws of supply and demand.

British Arts Council Wants to Make Sure Grant Recipients Are Homosexual

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:49 AM

It's a good thing that many in the arts community have conformed to the sexual depravity that's so trendy these days. Otherwise, they might not be able to get grants from British taxpayers:

Organisations applying for grants are being asked to state how many board members are bisexual, homosexual, heterosexual, lesbian or whose inclinations are "not known".
Audrey Roy, the director of grants, said that the council needed to understand who its audience was and to whom its funding was going. "We see diversity as broader than race, ethnicity, faith and disability," she said. Question 22 of the Grants for the Arts forms, relating to sexual orientation, was not compulsory, she added, although the form states that it must be answered.

I wonder if by claiming to be non-Caucasian, Muslim, paraplegic, and homosexual, you can qualify for four times as big a grant.

CNN Founder: Global Warming Will Turn Us into Cannibals

Who better to interview on April Fool's Day than Ted Turner, the man who bequeathed CNN to the world. The Mouth from the South shared his wit and wisdom with PBS's Charlie Rose.

On not taking drastic, potentially depression-inducing action to curtail the nonexistent phenomenon of global warming:

Not doing it will be catastrophic. We'll be eight degrees hottest in ten, not ten but 30 or 40 years and basically none of the crops will grow. Most of the people will have died and the rest of us will be cannibals.

According to Turner, global warming will cause civilization to break down, as will "hanging on to our nuclear weapons" and failing to "stabilize the population" — a phrase that sounds particularly ominous coming from a lunatic who apologizes for the Stalinist regime in North Korea. According to Turner there are "too many people." Evidently some of us will have to go; I don't think he's volunteering himself, but he would probably volunteer you if he had the chance.

Turner also praised the al Qaeda and Iranian-backed terrorists killing our troops and attempting to abort democracy in Iraq are "patriots." Here's the audio.

Islamic Morality: As Simple As It Is Psychotic

Maybe the affection moonbats feel toward Muslims comes from a longing for moral clarity. There's quite a contrast between the liberal swamp of nuance and parsing and sanctimonious moral relativism on one hand, and the Islamic code on the other. For Muslims, morality is quite simple: they are good, and everyone else is bad:

A question-and-answer session with Imam Abdul Makin in an East London mosque asks why Allah would tell Muslims to kill and rape innocent non-Muslims, including their wives and daughters, according to Islam Watch.
"Because non-Muslims are never innocent, they are guilty of denying Allah and his prophet," the Imam says, according to the report. "If you don't believe me, here is the legal authority, the top Muslim lawyer of Britain."
The lawyer, Anjem Choudary, backs up the Imam's position, saying that all Muslims are innocent.
"You are innocent if you are a Muslim," Choudary tells the BBC. "Then you are innocent in the eyes of God. If you are not a Muslim, then you are guilty of not believing in God."
Choudary said he would not condemn a Muslim for any action.
"As a Muslim, I must support my Muslim brothers and sisters," Choudary said. "I must have hatred to everything that is not Muslim."

The chilling interview with Abdul Makin, who endorses murder and rape, can be found on Islam Watch. Here's video of Choudary sharing his enlightenment:

Any moonbat who tries to play the "Yeah but Christians are just as bad" card renounces any claim to be taken seriously.

Times Reporter Qais Mizher Was Officer Under Saddam

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:00 PM

Not all of Saddam's old thugs are employed as terrorists now. Some have taken up other pernicious activities. Writes New York Times reporter Qais Mizher:

Calling on my experience as a captain in the Iraqi Army before the 2003 invasion…

In case the significance of the Times employing Saddam's officers as reporters didn't slap you in the face, Richard Miniter amplifies:

Officers had to be selected and regularly vetted for loyalty and effectiveness. So Saddam decided that he could trust our intrepid correspondent and so did the New York Times. Makes you wonder: Would the Times have hired former Nazi officers to cover the three-year insurgency against the American presence in Germany in the late 1940s? Even if they spoke the language, knew the countryside well and said they “never really believed” in that evil ideology?

NewsBusters asks, why not? After all, the Gray Lady gave us Walter Duranty, who deliberately covered up the genocide inflicted by Stalin in the Ukraine.

The Times must figure that if the bad guys don't hang together, they're liable to hang separately — just like Mizher's old boss.

Gas Not Expensive Enough for Los Angeles Bureauweenies

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:37 PM

Did you think gas prices are too high? Wrong, say moonbats — they're not high enough. But not to worry, Los Angeles County bureauweenies plan to correct the situation by adding yet another 9¢ to the extravagant taxes people already pay on every gallon. It's for a good cause, of course: to save the planet from harmless carbon emissions.

Comments Jon Coupal of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association:

This seems to be a cashing in on public sympathies on global warming to generate additional funding for programs that already exist.

Here we see the main reason the global warming hoax is so popular: cashing in on it is so easy, everyone's doing it.

Price of Biofuel Moonbattery on the Rise

Posted by Dave Blount at 9:16 AM

Moonbattery is a luxury that we can't always afford. For example, how long can we keep the absurd biofuel boondoggle afloat in the face of news like this:

Food prices are soaring, a wealthier Asia is demanding better food and farmers can't keep up. In short, the world faces a food crisis and in some places it's already boiling over. Around the globe, people are protesting and governments are responding with often counterproductive controls on prices and exports — a new politics of scarcity in which ensuring food supplies is becoming a major challenge for the 21st century.

Mexico is immediately impacted by our deranged practice of putting corn into gas tanks instead of drilling for oil. That's where

tens of thousands took to the streets last year over the cost of tortillas, a national staple whose price rocketed in tandem with the price of corn (maize).

Despite the predictable socialist lunacy of price controls, moonbattery is already taking a hit from the food shortage:

After long opposition, Mexico's government is considering lifting a ban on genetically modified crops, to allow its farmers to compete with the United States, where high-yield, genetically modified corn is the norm. The European Union and parts of Africa have similar bans that could also be reconsidered.

Even some environmentalists see the idiocy of diverting food into inefficient biofuel.

As the West seeks to tackle the risk of global warming, a drive towards greener fuels is compounding the world's food problems. It is estimated that one in four bushels of corn from this year's U.S. corn crop will be diverted to make fuel ethanol.
"Turning food into fuel for cars is a major mistake on many fronts." said Janet Larsen, director of research at the Earth Policy Institute, an environmental group based in Washington. "One, we're already seeing higher food prices in the American supermarket. Two, perhaps more serious from a global perspective, we're seeing higher food prices in developing countries where it's escalated as far as people rioting in the streets."

Given a choice between food and moonbattery, people will tend to choose food. Unfortunately, governments don't always offer the choice.

Shrillary Can't Even Manage Healthcare for Her Own Campaign

Posted by Dave Blount at 8:25 AM

Hillary Clinton, who has openly longed for years to take control of all Americans' healthcare, hasn't even been able to manage the healthcare for her own staff: $292,000 in health insurance premiums have gone unpaid.

The predictable "check's in the mail" stories from the Clinton campaign notwithstanding, it has owed Aetna a fortune since last year. Apparently McCain doesn't owe a penny to insurance providers. I wonder who would be more likely to keep the deficit under control.

Global Warming Profiteer Wants to Pollute the Ocean

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:52 AM

Hopefully the global warming hoax will run out of gas soon, before ecokooks do something really destructive: not just to our economy and our liberty but to the environment. For example, San Francisco entrepreneur Dan Whaley wants to cash in on the hoax by selling carbon credits to arrest the nonexistent climate change crisis through "ocean fertilization" — i.e., by dumping massive amounts of iron slurry into the ocean.

Yes, it's nuts; but so is the provably false rhetoric gushing out of Al Gore, and many people still manage to take him seriously. Once people have convinced themselves that the weather is an urgent problem and it's up to them to control it, all manner of mischief becomes feasible.

The Earth's climate has had no problem regulating itself for millions of years. Hysterical moonbats and the greedy creeps who exploit them might not do quite as good a job.



More Fun from Hamas TV

Posted by Dave Blount at 7:05 AM

If you think the crapola television feeds our kids is bad, check out what the rug rats are watching in Gaza. MEMRI-TV has video of a puppet show that features a little kid knifing President Bush for Allah as punishment for the sins of America. Truly creepy.

At least now we know that not all the $zillions in aid the West sends over there is spent on weapons for terrorists. Maybe if we sent a little more, they could graduate from puppets to animation.

Goracle Plans Another Propaganda Blitz

Posted by Dave Blount at 6:46 AM

Having been out of the spotlight since last Sunday, when he declared on 60 Minutes that not believing in the global warming hoax is the equivalent of thinking the Earth is flat, Al Gore is yelling and flapping his arms again. Now he's launched a new three-year propaganda blitzkrieg to make us stop using energy.

The nonexistent climate crisis will be compared to defeating the Nazis and ending segregation. The initial $300 million is only the beginning of what will be flushed down this pernicious campaign. Evidently hysteria doesn't come cheap. But it takes money to make money, and global warming profiteering has left the Goracle with plenty to spend.

Focuses will be indoctrinating small children and lobbying for "bold steps" from the government.
