Guard Plan Fails To Meet First Deadline

What a shock, the administration has failed to come up with even half of the 2500 Guardsmen that were supposed to be on a southern border by today. As of yesterday, less than 1000 were in place.

Granted, they are mostly being used to do oil changes and tire rotation for the Border Patrol and not in any real way to be an illegal invasion deterrrent. It just goes to show that everyone throughout the Bush organization knows this is simply posturing, while he tries to get his amnesty bill rammed down our throats. (see the previous post)

National Guard officials said Thursday that they probably won't reach the 2,500 target until early to mid-July and won't make the 6,000 deadline, either. Also, they said the number of troops will fluctuate from week to week over the course of the two-year mission.

"We now anticipate major waves in our deployment. There won't always be 6,000. That will be the maximum," Munn said.

What a great non plan, Mr. President, you and your boys must be proud.

Chertoff Threatens Congress With Greater Ineptness

From CNN: Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff said Thursday that the problem of illegal immigration into the United States will worsen if Congress does not pass immigration reform measures before the end of the year.

Is that a threat? If Congress doesn't sell out as the president desires, Homeland Security will see to it that things get so remarkably bad that Congress will have no choice but to cave in to the Bush agenda. HS will continue to fail to execute the nation's laws and when confronted with their ineptitude, failure and dereliction of duty they will blame Congress for not granting amnesty and making the problem go away. We know, as your crony John McCain told us, it's not amnesty it's a banana.

"Congress has an opportunity and it has a responsibility to act this year to tackle this problem," Chertoff said in a speech in Washington. "The president has used the tools of the so-called 'bully pulpit' to speak very aggressively and clearly about the comprehensive solution he thinks is appropriate. ... That is the way presidents move Congress."

Well, Michael, let me explain to you the way the American people move Congress. We tell them if they don't execute the will of the American people we will vote them out of office.

You should start updating your resume since not only can't you explain why you have failed to secure our borders, but admit you plan to allow them to become more porous.

Instead of telling Congress what to do, go back to your office and read and try to comprehend your job description and see if you can find it within yourself to truly serve the good people of this country.

UnAmerican Civil Liberties Union

The ACLU is now in cahoots with a foreign organization to investigate our government's tracking of financial information to thwart terrorism. The group is Privacy International and the ACLU plans to assist it.

"Privacy rights are being violated on both sides of the Atlantic and we welcome a European investigation to get to the bottom of this," said Barry Steinhardt, Director of the ACLU's Technology and Liberty Project.

"The ACLU has been providing Privacy International with information about American law and the status of any investigations here, while they have been keeping us abreast of European developments," said Steinhardt. "More and more we're seeing civil liberties being violated across national boundaries, and so civil liberties groups have to respond by working together to defend those liberties across national boundaries."

Steinhardt added, "things have reached a crisis point when some of our best hopes for preserving privacy in America lie with foreign commissioners."

What gall, what absolute unfettered betrayal of our nation for this subversive scum to go outside the confines of our own country in their attempt to undermine the war on terror. If there was ever a time to lay this duplicitous organization to a fast and final demise, it is now. What is there that is American that remains about the American Civil Liberties Union? The resounding answer is NOTHING!

Read it on their own subversive site.

Tails Thrown At Turkish Embassy?

Thanks to
Tongue Tied for finding this one.

The Turkish media have just crossed the silly line (see here) into the absurdity box.

This is taken directly from Turks.US Daily News.

Three suspects have been taken into custody by French police in connection with last Saturday's Molotov *censored*tail attack on the Turkish embassy in Paris.

While an application has been made to increase the period of the suspects’ detention to six days, it is expected that they will be charged with carrying out an attack on behalf of a terrorist organization.

In the attack on the Turkish Embassy, two Molotov *censored*tails were thrown which caused damage to the embassy entrance but no casualties were reported.

The suspects were identified after eyewitnesses informed the police of the registration number of the car in which the attackers fled.

The Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) or the Revolutionary People's Liberation Party/Front (DHKP/C) may have been responsible for the attack.

In April this year, Turkey's Paris embassy had been the target of another Molotov *censored*tail attack carried out by unknown persons.

Whoever was given the *censored*ignment to write this, certainly got carried away.

The Choice Is Life Or Death

The US Supreme Court has refused to hear whether the "Choose Life" license plates of Tennessee constitute "viewpoint discrimination." The suit had been brought by the ACLU and abortion advocates.

Now that the high court has agreed not to hear the case, the appeals court decision permitting the plates stands. Hedy M. Weinberg, executive director of the ACLU of Tennessee, said she was disappointed. Of course she was.

I don't get it, what license plate would reflect the opposing viewpoint of Choose Life? Not, Pro Choice, because Choose Life already implies there is a choice to be made. If you want to oppose the Choose Life viewpoint then what do you proclaim? Choose Death with a little skull and crossbones pictured? Or, maybe Choose Abortion; I don't want to imagine the visual.

It's sad to consider there would be many people driving around proclaiming these messages on their vehicles. Still, we are dealing with the left and the disciples of Margaret Sanger, the mother of Planned Parenthood and the advocate of sterilizing the "unfit."

Another Kerry "Plan"

Realizing how long alcohol has powered Teddy Kennedy, John Kerry has decided to
unveil a national energy plan that sounds more like an old wish list than a plan. Where have we heard this before? Let's reduce oil imports, have more cars using alternative fuels and cut greenhouse gas emissions. That's the wish list, the plan? Make the oil companies provide ethanol at the pumps and use tax credits to promote hybrid vehicles. John, rehashing the same tired old rhetoric about our gasoline addiction is hardly a plan. If you want to do something constructive, release your military records to the general public.

North Quotes Churchill

Go to this Washington Times commentary by Oliver North, it is well worth the read. Succinct and to the point, North explains why it's fortunate Winston Churchill didn't have war heroes like Kerry and Murtha to contend with.

He quotes Churchill,
"Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival."

Would that we had one man like Winston Churchill in our senate today.

Where Were Her Rights?

A great story from CNS about Republican minority leader Ted Harvey in the Colorado House. Upon learning of a celebration honoring Planned Parenthood which he described as a "90 year legacy of genocide," Ted invited Gianna Jessen to sing the national anthem in the Colorado House.

The article goes on to say:

Jessen agreed and Harvey introduced her to his colleagues as a "friend with cerebral palsy." He asked Speaker Andrew Romanoff if Jessen could sing the national anthem and the speaker agreed.

During the song, Jessen lost her balance and leaned on Harvey for support. When she began to forget the words, saying that she was nervous, legislators and guests began to sing along with her.

After she was finished, the speaker, according to Harvey, stated, "Let us give her a hand not only for her performance today but also for her advocacy work," for cerebral palsy.

Harvey also said a reporter for a Denver newspaper told Jessen that "her rendition captured the spirit of the national anthem more powerfully than any she had ever heard before."

What Ted Harvey hadn't told anyone was that a failed abortion at a Planned Parenthood clinic had caused Jessen to be born weighing two pounds and afflicted with cerebral palsy.

When he began to introduce her legislators cheered loudly, and House Majority Leader Alice Madden, who had introduced the bill honoring the Planned Parenthood chapter, approached Jessen to congratulate her for overcoming her difficulties with cerebral palsy.

But, once Harvey got to the part about Jessen surviving an abortion the mood in the House quickly changed.

Read the whole article to see the villainous reaction by the liberals when confronted by the tragic results of their abortion agenda.

Gianna Jessen put it so well when she said, "We need to discuss the humanity of it. I'm glad to be able to speak up for children in the womb. If abortion is about women's rights, where were my rights?"

Of course, Madden and Romanoff are trying to paint Ted Harvey as the bad guy, saying he used this woman for political purposes. That is a tactic of the liberals, who are only interested in others as marketable victims to be utilized in advancing their schemes. As usual they project their own abominable motives on to others.

The Next Battle In The Christmas Tree War

Legislation recently taken up by a House Judiciary subcommittee would prohibit damages and attorney fees from being awarded to plaintiffs in cases over public religious displays according to CNS.

PERA (H.R. 2679), the Public Expression of Religion Act would amend two federal laws that are currently used by groups like the ACLU to extort behavior out of individuals.

The article states further:

Rees Lloyd, a former ACLU employee who went on to work as a judge advocate for the American Legion, also testified in favor of the bill; his written testimony stated that there is no need for the ACLU to have its attorney fees paid in religious display cases it challenges in court.

"As a former ACLU attorney, I know to a certainty that the ACLU's litigation is carried out by staff attorneys, or by pro bono attorneys who are in fact precluded from receiving fees under the ACLU's own policies," said Lloyd.

He provided many instances in which he felt unjustified attorney fees were paid to the ACLU:

$1 million was given to the ACLU by the Dover, Pa., School Board in the "Dover Design Theory Case" when the ACLU claimed that teaching "intelligent design" alongside Darwinian Theory violated the Establishment Clause.

Another involved a Ten Commandments monument that was ordered removed from Alabama's state judicial building in 2003. The ACLU and sister organizations received $500,000 in attorney fees.

Lloyd also cited the Redlands, Calif., City Council, which voted to remove the cross in 2005 from its City Seal because the ACLU threatened to sue. Lloyd said the only reason given for the vote was the fear that court-awarded attorney fees would take away taxpayer funds needed for city services.

Because the city could not afford to change all of the seals, employees who had badges -- police, fire, emergency services -- were called in and had holes drilled through the crosses of their badges to comply with the ACLU's demands.

The threat of such attorney fees, according to Lloyd, "is having a chilling effect on the exercise of fundamental First Amendment rights."

It is about time something was done to give the defendants protection from the financial intimidation of the ACLU.

"For The Country Folk To Be Up And To Arm"

Hazelton, Pennsylvania is taking steps to do what the Federal Government refuses to do. "Illegal immigrants are destroying the city," said Mayor Lou Barletta, "I don't want them here, period."

So begins a crackdown with a measure that would revoke the business licenses of companies that employ illegals, fine landlords who rent to illegals a $1000 and make English the official language of the city.

This is what will probably have to happen around the nation since President Bush and his cabal for a new North America have no intention of securing our borders.

Other examples of cities taking the lead include San Bernardino, California where voters will decide whether to adopt a measure similar to the one in Hazleton. An Idaho county has filed a racketeering lawsuit against agricultural companies accused of hiring illegals. And, in New Hampshire, two police chiefs began arresting illegals for trespassing.

It is sad that it has come to this, but it is the grassroots determination of average citizens that has always arisen to protect America when she is in need.

Kerry's Coven For Cutting And Running

John "Frenchy" Kerry, leader of the unholy 13 and proud papa of the "Cut and Run" bill, watched as it was slain in the Senate last week.

Those screaming Yea for our defeat by redeploying (read retreat) in order to further their Bush bashing agenda, abandon the people of Iraq to terrorists and murderers and achieve defeat in the war on terror are as follows:

Daniel Akaka (D-Hi)

Babs Boxer (D-CA)

Dick "The Turban" Durbin (D-IL)

Russ Feingold (D-WI)

Tom Harkin (D-IA)

Daniel Inouye (D-HI)

James Jeffords (I-VT)

Teddy "Chappaquidick" Kennedy (D-MA)

John "Frenchy" Kerry (D-MA)

Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ)

Patrick Leahy (D-VT)

Robert Menendez (D-NJ)

Ron Wyden (D-OR)

These are the senators that we need to target. The names are all familiar because they have time and time again tried to undermine our nation. They have attacked her sovereignty, her armed forces and her people. They have done all they can to weaken the foundations of the United States and besmirch her pride and reputation. They claim to be patriots but their actions belie their words.

Let us hope the voters have the good sense to ride them out of Washington on a pole.

Sears Tower Target

From CNN comes a report of an indictment against seven men with a plan to "kill all the devils we can."

Named in the indictment is Narseal Batiste, who allegedly told a federal undercover agent who he thought was a member of al Qaeda that he was organizing a mission to build an Islamic army to wage a jihad in the United States.

The document says that Batiste "recruited and supervised individuals in order to organize and train for a mission to wage war against the United States government, which included a plot to destroy by explosives the Sears Tower in Chicago, Illinois," the nation's tallest building.

Federal sources said five of the seven suspects were Americans, one was an illegal alien from Haiti whose visa had expired and the last was a resident alien.

Some sources also reported that some of the men had surveyed the buildings they allegedly were targeting and taken photos.

How long before the ACLU and CAIR come rushing to the rescue?

Sarandon's Talking And She Can't Shut Up

Looney liberal Susan Sarandon now wants to tell us how to secure our borders. The big mouthed harridan has criticized the proposed wall along the Mexican border. She says "we," that's us folks, should build schools for the Mexicans.

First of all you pernicious witch, if you want to spend money on schools for other countries do not include the rest of us in your half baked liberal schemes. If our tax money is to be spent on education then let it be spent here. Our public schools are nothing to write home about, evidenced by your own inability to think logically, and certainly could use an infusion of cash and an upgrade in skills.

Second, if you want to throw money at a problem, use yours. Abandon all that you have and give it to the poor and needy and stop preaching to the rest of us while still clinging to your Hollywood lifestyle.

I am sick of you and those like you spouting your foolishness about the war on terror and whatever else is the liberal topic du jour. Why don't you and your friends buy a big island, invite in all those you perceive as oppressed, and sing Kumbaya till the cows come home. If nothing else, not having to listen to you will seem like world peace to the rest of us.

Thanks, I think, to NewsMax.

It's A Triple Play

Another senior member of al Qaeda has been captured. This guy has yet to be identified by the military, but it seems like we're on a roll. Zarqawi got his just deserts about two weeks ago and Sheikh Mansur, another terrorist, was sent to look for Allah just a few days before this raid. That's three in a row.

In describing this new arrest the military said, "He is known to be involved in facilitating foreign terrorists throughout central Iraq, and is suspected of having ties to previous attacks on Coalition and Iraqi forces."

A round of applause for our forces in Iraq.

The Nemesis Of Justice

Kent Willis, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union in Virginia.

There is a new law in Virginia; it's part of the changes the state is making to sex offender laws. The goal is to have tougher punishments and better monitoring of the offenders once they're released.

This particular law, which takes effect July 1st, requires public and private colleges to send the state police the names, social security numbers and birth dates for all the students they accept.

The bill passed unanimously and Republican state Senator Kenneth Stolle, the bill's chief Senate sponsor, said the legislation was an important part of the effort to prevent sex abuse.

"We would be housing some of these sex offenders in an area that is close to other students," he said. "The only way we could ensure that this information was verified was to feed the information to the state police."

"I've got two kids in college right now," said Stolle, "You're going to have a . . . hard time explaining to me why my daughter is living next door to a sexual offender. My guess is every parent out there would have the same expectation that I do."

Schools will send the information electronically to police, who will check it against the state and national sex offender registries, said Col. W. Steven Flaherty, superintendent of the state police.

If a prospective student is a registered sex offender and enrolls in the school, police will check to see if the offender fills out a change of address form within the required 72 hours. If the offender does not, police will investigate.

The school also is notified that a sex offender is among the students who enroll.

Personal information of those who are not registered sex offenders will be destroyed. "Essentially, this information comes to us. We bounce it against the sex offender registry. If we don't get a hit, we don't keep the information," Flaherty said.

Polly Franks, a Virginia advocate for victims of sex crimes, said the risk of harm from offenders trumps privacy concerns. Two of Franks' young relatives were sexually assaulted by a neighbor who, unbeknownst to Franks, had been convicted of sex crimes in Texas.

And now, the rest of the story. Yes, you guessed it, the ACLU has issues. What were the odds?

"This law may not technically violate federal law, but it certainly violates the spirit of federal law intended to maintain student privacy rights," said Kent Willis, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union in Virginia.

For the ACLU to even broach the subject of the spirit of the law is the height of hypocrisy. This group has raped and defiled justice herself in order to protect the guilty at the expense of the innocent. That is a violation of justice without equal. If anything, the ACLU is the nemesis of justice.

As Senator Stolle puts it, "You can't stop protecting people because you're afraid that efforts . . . are going to be abused." It seems, senator, you can and you will if you're a card carrying member of the ACLU.

Thou Shalt Not Watch Soccer

Guess what? If you're Muslim you can't enjoy soccer. That's what "The Saved Sect" jihadist website in Britain says.

Soccer plants the seeds of nationalism, and is therefore part of a "colonial crusader scheme" to divide Muslims and cause them to stray from the vision of a unified Islamic identity, the website told readers: "The sad fact of the matter is that many Muslims have fallen for this new religion and they too carry the national flag.

The statement, aimed at calling on British Muslims to disassociate themselves with the World Cup in Germany, ended with a quote by Muhammad condemning nationalism.

First they came for Piglet and next it's the pigskin. Where will it all end?

Turkey Attacks Pigs

What is it about cartoons that frightens these people?

From Australia's comes word that TRT (Turkey's public television) has barred Winnie the Pooh because it has a pig as one of its heroes. In order to be consistent, several other cartoons featuring pigs also were banned.

The station considered editing the Piglet scenes, but apparently the little guy was in just too many scenes to make it practical. I'm glad they gave so much thought to this because it allows us to see the scope of their integrity. logic and acumen.

This is a Muslim country that supposed to be secular?

Shift Happens

Has the John Kerry balancing act resulted in brain damage?

John Kerry never seems to get it right and constantly has to try and reinvent himself. He has gone from fighting in Vietnam to describing his fellow veterans as those "who are given the chance to die for the biggest nothing in history." He now has moved from backing the war in Iraq to saying he was wrong to support a mistake. John's addiction to second-guessing himself is his own affair, but, unfortunately, he wants to second-guess everyone else also.

Whatever the mood of the public opinion polls, the Sunshine Patriot, is there.

John, just show us everything in your military records so there will be no second-guessing about that.

John Kerry testimony before the US Senate April, 1971:"While I wouldn't presume to compare my own experience, I have taken a great deal of criticism since I myself in 1965 took issue with the then President Johnson over his policies. I did what I could within my particular role in the Government to persuade both President Johnson and subsequent political leaders that this was not in the interests of our country. I did this, not because I thought they were evil men inherently or they were morally misguided, but their political judgment was wrong. All of us, of course, know that as fallible human beings we all make errors of judgment."

John Kerry statement at Take Back America Conference June, 2006:"It's not enough to argue with the logistics or to argue about the details or the manner of the conflict's execution or the failures of competence, as great as they are. It is essential to acknowledge that the war itself was a mistake, to say the simple words that contain more truth than pride. We were misled. We were given evidence that was not true. It was wrong, and I was wrong to vote for that Iraqi resolution."

She Missed The Art Appreciation Class

The Telegraph reports an attack on the villa and museum of Egyptian sculptor Hassan Heshmat. Three pieces of art were damaged by a black clad and veiled woman screaming, "Infidels, infidels! Obviously, she is a little more than just an outspoken art critic.

Indeed, this just seems to be another example of religiously motivated violence and destruction so common in that part of the world and a "cultural treasure" they would like to begin exporting to the West.

The attack followed a fatwa by the Grand Mufti of Cairo, Ali Gomaa, which banned all decorative statues of living beings.

Quoting the article:

"We are seeing an increase of conservative, Islamist feeling," said Nabil Abdel Fatah, from the Al Ahram centre for Political and Strategic studies in Cairo.

"The Islamisation of Egyptian society is happening from the bottom up, and now it has reached the middle classes - the doctors, the lawyers.

"Over the next few years political Islam will grow and grow," he added. "The duality between secular and religious is very dangerous and will lead to a very serious conflict in Egyptian society.

We are already seeing terror attacks. And we will see new radical groups who will want to change the state in the most basic way - by suicide bombs and assassination."

If Egypt falls to these philistines, not only might we lose some of the greatest art treasures known to mankind, but the threat of islamofascism to the civilized world will be greater than ever before.

As they have elsewhere, they are trying to use the election process in Egypt to gain the upper hand. Although, critics in the West love to refer to any democratic steps in Egypt as a charade would it be better to have a Hamas style victory by the Muslim Brotherhood?

The truth is, when open elections are held in that part of the world, it becomes painfully obvious that the so called peace loving majority is non existent and it is the fanatics that carry the day. When the majority of your eligible voters are violence dependent street rabble, it is difficult to justify a democratic process.

Bush Too Busy For Border

WorldNetDaily reports that President Bush has refused to meet with border law enforcement officials in Texas for a second time. Is anyone shocked?

Representative Ted Poe, Republican of Texas is a member of the House subcommittee on international terrorism and nonproliferation. He said, "The next terrorist is not going to come in through screening at Kennedy airport.We already have information that people from the Middle East have come through the border from Mexico. They assimilate in Mexico learning to speak Spanish and adopt customs and then they cross the border into the United States."

How frightening is that? Apparently not at all to our president and the majority of senators.

A group that includes all 26 border county sheriffs from California, New Mexico, Arizona and Texas,the Southwestern Sheriffs' Border Coalition, wanted to speak to the president on the increasingly dangerous situation along the border.

A letter issued Monday by the White House and signed by La Rhonda M. Houston, deputy director of the Office of Appointments and Scheduling, said: "The president would appreciate the opportunity to visit with border sheriffs. Regrettably, it will not be possible for us to arrange such a meeting. I know that you understand with the tremendous demands of the president's time, he must often miss special opportunities, as is the case this time."

Hola! Bush doesn't want to hear it because it conflicts with his open borders for North America and amnesty for everyone plan.

Instead he programs White House automatons to repeat phrases like, "President Bush is committed to ensuring that our nation's borders are secure." If Bush or anyone else believes are borders are anywhere near secure, or are in the process of becoming secure, they should be commited.

If I hear one more White House mouthpiece mention the National Guard deployment as if it will significantly assist border security, I will puke.

The president and the majority of the senate have an agenda that is in direct oppostion to the wishes of the American people. They are bound and determined to ram it down the peoples' throats and public opinion be damned. Only the House can save us and that is why we must return those who reflect the will of the people to office come election time. All others must go down to resounding defeat, regardless of party affiliation.

What Is The Law?

Another example of forgiveness and mercy brought to you by the religion of peace and tolerance:

From the Khaleej Times comes the story of a Pakastani Muslim accused of insulting Muhammad.

Blasphemy is against the law in Pakistan and is punishable by death. Although cases are not uncommon, the death sentence is never carried out because of "lack of evidence."

So two Muslims took it upon themselves to serve as judge, jury and executioner and set upon the man with knives while he was exiting the courtroom. The victim died after receiving 15 stab wounds in the chest and two police officials were also hurt while trying to protect him.

Police described the two assailants as "religious fanatics," of which there seems to be no shortage in the land of Pakistan. A Muslim cleric was killed by a mob last week after a rival "religious" group accused him of burning pages from the Koran.

The article ends by saying the Independent Human Rights Commission of Pakistan said the killing of the cleric illustrated how the blasphemy law was abused by people to settle personal and religious disputes.

"We've been demanding that the government change the law radically so people can't misuse it," said the commisssion head.

Do they really think that a law is going to dissuade these islamomaniacs from dealing out death to perceived blasphemers? Get real. These savages are driven by some primal rage and are addicted to the rush they get from the violence that ensues. To deal with them as rational, logical sentient creatures is absurd and potentially suicidal.

We Should Expect Nothing Less

A Brooklyn federal judge dealt, John Gleeson tossed out portions of a class-action lawsuit originally filed in 2002 against former Attorney General John Ashcroft, FBI head Robert Mueller, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the warden of Brooklyn's Metropolitan Detention Center and numerous prison guards.

"After the September 11 attacks, our government used all available law-enforcement tools to ferret out the persons responsible for those atrocities and to prevent additional acts of terrorism. "We should expect nothing less," the judge wrote in a 99-page decision.

The detainees, who were all picked up for minor immigration violations such as expired visas, claimed they were unlawfully rounded up and detained immediately after 9/11. The court wisely ruled that authorities were well within their rights to hold illegal immigrants as they investigated the terror attacks.

Once in a while, common sense still prevails. Of course, we must wait and see what the appeals bring.

The Bare Facts Of Risk Taking

By way of comes this strange tale of nude risk taking.

If the girl still marries this guy, she deserves what she gets. I personally feel the wrong man got arrested.

A man ran naked through his neighborhood, trying to show his hesitant girlfriend that taking risks is important. Someone needs to explain to this guy that there are risks to be taken and others that are foolhardy.

The two were discussing marriage when the woman said she wasn't sure if she was ready, according to Ann Arbor police reports. A fortuitous feeling on her part.

To convince her, he stripped down and ran across the street, but had to duck into some bushes when he saw another couple walking down the street.

The other couple saw the bushes rustling and bare feet sticking out underneath, so the man drew his handgun and ordered the naked guy to come out.

The naked man ran away, but the armed man gave chase and fired a shot. Then the naked man fell to the ground, suffering minor injuries. If he had any pride, that would have suffered worst of all.

Police arrested the gunman on charges of aggravated assault and carrying a concealed weapon. The naked man was not arrested.

Dead Man Walking

I wonder how it feels to be the new "al-Qaida in Iraq" leader. Abu Ayyub al-Masri, an Egyptian explosives expert seems to have acquired that dubious distinction. He has been identified on a militant website by the nom de guerre Abu Hamza al-Muhajer, and has vowed to avenge the death of Zarqawi. More likely, he has just signed his own death warrant.

No matter, he has been a terrorist since 1982, since his involvement in the Egyptian Islamic Jihad, which was then led by Osama bin Laden's minion Ayman al-Zawahri. He also spent time training with terrorists in Afghanistan starting in 1999. In late 2001, al-Masri began to work with al-Zarqawi in Falluja.

So with a terrorist rap sheet this long, the sooner we send him the bad end of a hellfire missile, the better. If I were al-Masri I wouldn't be making any long term purchases while I got my affairs in order.

The Color Of Frozen Assets

By way of The Times-Picayune comes word that on Al Sharpton's radio show Tuesday, William Jefferson suggested there was a racial motive in the case against him, particularly in the May 20th raid of his Capitol Hill office.

"In 219 years, not one member's office has ever been raided," Jefferson said. "When the first one raided is an African-American's, it does require some investigators being very careful to see why in this case it is being treated differently."

Sure, and I suppose it was the Klan that planted the $90,000 in your freezer, William, divided among various frozen food containers. Or was that where you kept your savings because you don't trust how the banks take care of black folks' money?

This kind of nonsense is encouraged by people like Sharpton and many on the Black Caucus. Their initial inclination is to play the race card before the facts are aired and confirmed. I would say that if Jefferson is found guilty it will reflect poorly on them, but I don't know how Sharpton could possibly sink any lower.

Jefferson, like any other American, deserves his fair day in court. Let him have it, but when you're caught hiding $90,000 in your fridge at home, the only color issue is where did you get the green?!

Finding A Thumbdrive In His Pocket

I was hoping that besides eliminating Zarqawi we would also benefit by finding all kinds of goodies that would help to further cripple al-Qaeda.

Well, lo and behold Iraq's National Security Adviser, Mouwafak al-Rubaie, has described the documents and computer data found as a “huge treasure.” He said he believed the security situation in the country would improve enough to allow a large number of U.S.-led forces to leave Iraq by the end of this year, and a majority to depart by the end of next year. “And maybe the last soldier will leave Iraq by mid-2008,” he said.

A laptop, flashdrive and other documents were found in the debris of the attack and more information has been uncovered in raids of other terrorist hideouts since then.

This is my favorite part of the story. The press, always looking for the negative spin, asked how he could be sure the information was authentic. Al-Rubaie replied “there is nothing more authentic than finding a thumbdrive in his pocket.”

Freedom Of Violence Defended

The Detroit Free Press tells us that "In a year when violence at Detroit Public Schools has made headlines, the district has agreed to stop random weapons sweeps and cut back on other security measures as part of a settlement in a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union. "

The article goes on to say the settlement has some students and parents worried about safety.

Random weapons searches have been a tactic used to deter crime in Detroit Public Schools for at least the past two decades.

Michael J. Steinberg of the ACLU said his plaintiffs filed the suit because they didn't want to see the schoolhouse turned into a jailhouse. I guess a killing field is more to their liking.

Other parents feel quite differently than the shills for the ACLU.

"The most innocent looking one could be the guilty one," said Tami Miller, whose 15-year-old daughter, Makyia Miller, will be a sophomore next year at Mumford High School.

The random searches, she said, "helped to protect the kids from outside dangers."

Some students are frightened by the end of random searches.

"We've had plenty of incidents where people have brought guns or knives or blades," said Lasanna Dodd , 17, an 11th-grader.

"If they're not going to do those searches anymore, that makes me want to go to different schools," in another city, she said.

Once again, the ACLU has managed to force the authorities to cater to the whims of the minority by sacrificing the security and freedoms of the majority.

Long May She Wave Over One Nation Under God


I am the Flag
Howard Schnauber

I am the flag of the United States of America.
My name is Old Glory.
I fly atop the world's tallest buildings.
I stand watch in America's halls of justice.
I fly majestically over institutions of learning.
I stand guard with power in the world.
Look up ... and see me.

I stand for peace, honor, truth and justice.
I stand for freedom.
I am confident.
I am arrogant.
I am proud.

When I am flown with my fellow banners,
my head is a little higher,
my colors a little truer.

I bow to no one!
I am recognized all over the world.
I am worshipped -- I am saluted.
I am loved -- I am revered.
I am respected -- and I am feared.

I have fought in every battle of every war
for more then 200 years.
I was flown at Valley Forge,
Gettysburg, Shiloh and Appamatox.
I was there at San Juan Hill,
the trenches of France,
in the Argonne Forest,
Anzio, Rome, and the beaches of Normandy.
Guam, Okinawa, Korea and
KheSan, Saigon, Vietnam know me.
I was there.

I led my troops.
I was dirty, battleworn and tired,
but my soldiers cheered me
And I was proud.
I have been burned, torn and trampled
on the streets of countries I have helped set free.
It does not hurt, for I am invincible.

I have been soiled upon, burned, torn
and trampled on the streets of my country.
And when it's by those whom I've served in battle -- it hurts.
But I shall overcome -- for I am strong.

I have slipped the bonds of Earth
and stood watch over the uncharted frontiers of space
from my vantage point on the moon.
I have borne silent witness
to all of America's finest hours.
But my finest hours are yet to come.

When I am torn into strips and used as bandages
for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
When I am flown at half-mast to honor my soldier,
Or when I lie in the trembling arms of a grieving parent
at the grave of their fallen son or daughter,
I am proud.

My name is 'Old Glory'!
Long may I wave
o'er the land of the free
and the home of the brave.

Please forward this message to all who still love and respect me, that I may continued to fly proudly for another two hundred years.

Time For A Career Change

Whenever I feel I'm having a bad day, I try to remind myself what others may be going through on a daily basis. After all, I could be making a living as this go-kart driver or, worse yet, one of the two manual handlers. Read more at Reuters.

Live "sex shows" of bulls mounting a simulated cow have become a big attraction at an agricultural exhibition taking place in New Zealand.

The fake 'cow' -- a small go-kart with natural cowhide on its roof -- was developed by Ambreed New Zealand Ltd. to collect semen from bulls more safely and efficiently and improve artificial breeding of cows.

Similar machines are widely used in Europe but have yet to be introduced in New Zealand, where dairy products are its largest export.

The go-kart, driven by a human operator, draws close to a bull and adjusts to the proper height.

The experience can be a little alarming.

"It's quite a daunting feeling when you consider you've got a bull there that weighs a thousand kilograms sitting on top of you and is in quite an aggressive mood," Andrew Medley, production manager at Ambreed, told Reuters.

Bull semen is commonly obtained using a rubber device known as an artificial vagina which is put in place manually by two handlers.

Unsecured Homeland Security Department

CNN tells us that a retired NYC policeman, Bruce DeCell,used a forged Mexican identification to gain access to the Homeland Security Department headquarters in Washington. These are the people who are supposed to be securing the country and keeping us from further terrorist attacks?

Read the article to see how not even the slightest attempt was made to verify the authenticity of DeCell's documentation.

Jarrod Agen, a Homeland Security spokesman, told CNN, "In response to this incident, we are following up on the allegations, and we seek to ensure that an incident like this does not occur again."

An incident like this should not have happened in a post-9/11 world period. If the attack on the towers wasn't enough to keep you on alert, what will it take?

"At no time was there a threat to the DHS building or its personnel," Agen babbled on. Are you taking credit for that, Jarrod? Or do you admit that by luck and the grace of God it was
Bruce DeCell who waltzed through your fake security and not some psycho bent on destruction.

"It's very frustrating," DeCell told CNN. "I'm an unpaid citizen who had a loss on 9/11, and they're not doing what they need to do to prevent another 9/11. It's very discouraging for me."

As it is for all of us, Mr. DeCell. The problem is that it will probably cost no one their job at any significant level of authority and it will be dismissed with more worthless statements like the tripe offered by Jarrod Agen. God, help us and protect us because obviously our government won't and or can't.

Make Kerry Produce The Records

A must read to see the devious and manipulative John Kerry "in action" is at Real Clear Politics. John Kerry's Skimmer Scam by Thomas Lipscomb is not to be missed. Also, read by the same author, The Truth, John Kerry, and The New York Times.

It is tragic that this self aggrandizing liar actually got as close as he did to the White House.

Unless we can all review Kerry's complete and unadulterated military files we will never know what actually really happened. Yet, it is hardly expected that Kerry will let anyone shine the light of truth on his patchwork of lies and historical rewrites.

The Hunt For Bin Laden Intensifies

According to The Herald, as many as 400 elite British, American, Australian, Polish and Canadian special forces troopers are to be transferred from Iraq to Afghanistan to step up the hunt for Osama bin Laden.

They are the teams responsible for locating Abu Musab al Zarqawi and they were also central in capturing Saddam Hussein, cornering and killing his sons Uday and Qusay, and rescuing the British hostage Norman Kember.

Bin Laden
and his jackal, Egyptian doctor Ayman al Zawahiri, avoid direct contact with each other, but they are both believed to be in the area of the mountainous Afghan provinces that share a border with Pakistan's tribal territories. That encompasses about 10,000 square miles of harsh, unforgiving landscape.

The allied special forces who will join the search include the British and Australian SAS, Poland's Grom commandos, Canada's Joint Task Force Two specialists, and US Delta and Navy Seal teams. God speed.

Edwards Beats Clinton In Iowa Poll

This surprised me. In a poll in Iowa that tested support among likely Iowa caucus participants, John Edwards came in first as a potential Democrat candidate for president in 2008. Thirty percent of the Iowans liked him as opposed to second place Hillary who got twenty six percent. Kerry came in a distant third with twelve percent.

I really was not looking at Edwards as a viable candidate and I'm not saying this makes him one, but I would not have guessed he would beat Hillary out anywhere. It probably says more about the vulnerability of Clinton than it does the viability of Edwards.

Tom Vilsack the governor of Iowa came in fourth with ten percent. That's more, I'm sure, than he would garner in any other state.

Five other potential Democratic presidential candidates listed in the poll bring up the rear with no more than three percent each.

The poll has a margin of error of 4.9 percentage points.

More Dead Terrorists

The terrorists are continuing to take a beating as the Pakastani army reports killing more than 30 in a training camp raid on Saturday. Arabs, Uzbeks and locals were among the dead who were believed to have been responsible for attacks in Afghanistan.

“It was a highly successful operation,” said top Pakistan army spokesman Maj. Gen. Shaukat Sultan.

We need to keep the pressure on these killers, worldwide. They must feel they have no refuge, no safe haven and know we can and will exterminate them without mercy.

The fat lady may not have sung yet for Osama, but hopefully he can hear her footsteps approaching the stage.

Book Banning Broads Of Jersey

NewsMax reports that two New Jersey Assemblywomen are attempting to implement book banning in their state. Joan Quigley and Linda Stender want retailers in their state to ban the sale of Ann Coulter's new book "Godless: The Church of Liberalism." Among other things, the book criticizes the four 9/11 widows known as "the Jersey Girls."

Not content to call upon their constituents to boycott the book, these two actually are calling for censorship by requesting retailers not even make it available to the public statewide. Obviously the Democrats disdain for Coulter is so great they would like to remove her right to free speech. Do they really believe there are no people in the state of New Jersey who want and have a right to have access to this book? Of course not, this is a blatant attempt to draw attention to themselves and get some attention for their pathetic political aspirations.

They are quoted, "No one in New Jersey should buy this book and allow Ann Coulter to profit from her hate-mongering. We are asking New Jersey retailers statewide to stand with us and express their outrage by refusing to carry or sell copies of Coulter's book. Her hate-filled attacks on our 9-11 widows has no place on New Jersey bookshelves."

For no other reason than this I encourage everyone, especially in New Jersey, to purchase a copy and put the "Book Banning Broads of Jersey" in their place.

Justice Strikes Again

Justice has come to another of the islamofascist killers.

Back in April I wrote about the appointment of Jamal Abu Samhadana as chief of a new security force comprised of Hamas members. Samhadana had said that his new position would not halt his involvement in attacks on Israel. He was also number 2 on Israel's most wanted list.

Samhadana is quoted as saying, "We have only one enemy. They are Jews. We have no other enemy." He was one of the founders of the Popular Resistance Committees, a terrorist group that blew up several Israeli tanks in Gaza and killed three US security guards in a deadly bombing attack on a US diplomatic convoy. He was killed by an Israeli air strike on a PRC training camp Thurday night in the southern Gaza town of Rafah. Militants there were planning a large-scale attack on Israel. The Israeli military would neither confirm nor deny that Abu Samhadana had been the intended target.

Of course, this has resulted in the stock mob of psychotics pulling the dead body from the morgue, parading it through the streets while screaming their usual assortment of impotent death threats to the civilized populations of the world.

Meanwhile, I'm hoping the devil is having a dilemma regarding whether Zarqawi or Samhadana gets the warmer spot in hell.

Everything Is Up For Sale

The male Cindy Sheehan, Michael Berg, whose son Nick was beheaded in Iraq says he feels no sense of relief at Zarqawi's death even though the CIA said Zarqawi was probably the one wielding the knife in a video of the murder.

Berg, who is running as a Green Party candidate (what were the odds?), has repeatedly blamed Bush and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld for his 26-year-old son's death.

Asked what would give him satisfaction, Berg, said, "The end of the war and getting rid of George Bush."

Berg has admitted his son was a big fan of George Bush; "On this we disagreed vehemently," he said.

So for personal political reasons this leftwing looney joins the grief for sale subversives. Disgusting!

By way of Reuters.

Here's a better reaction:

The brother of Ken Bigley, a British engineer beheaded by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's group, said Thursday that he expected the extremist will rot in hell.

"The man was an animal and he deserved what he got. And may he rot in hell," Paul Bigley told Channel Four television on Thursday.

Al-Zarqawi's followers captured Ken Bigley, held him for weeks and filmed his beheading in 2004. Bigley's death traumatized his native Liverpool and his body has not been recovered.

"He's gone. The world has rid themselves of a very bad person. So he thinks he's going to paradise? I'm convinced the man is in hell," Paul Bigley said.

By way of MSNBC

Now Serving

According to a report in the Scotsman, Zarqawi's relatives are praying for 1000 "Zarqawis" to fight the Americans in his place. These Islamist lemmings will never learn.

"If this is true then he is a martyr for Islam. This is a major loss for Islam," Zarqawi's brother-in-law, Saleh al-Hami said.

You got that right, al-Hami, Islamofacism lost again and the good guys won another one.

"This is a tragedy. We are all sad here," said Zarqawi's uncle, Yazm Khalayleh, 64.

The only thing sad and tragic is that we didn't get the rest of you psychotic cretins along with him. Take a number and get in line.

Swiss Cheese For Brains

By way of The Washington Times.

A proposal from the Senate Intelligence Committee that would exempt federal agencies from provisions of the Privacy Act in the name of the war against terrorism has, of course, gotten the attention of the ACLU.

"If this is enacted, the Privacy Act will look like Swiss cheese," exaggerated ACLU legislative counsel Tim Sparapani.

The bill would allow U.S. intelligence agencies to access personal information about Americans held by other federal departments or agencies if it is believed relevant to counter-terrorism or counter-proliferation.

A Democratic committee staffer defended the proposal, telling UPI that the exemptions were "narrowly drawn to address the kinds of problems we found during our Sept. 11 inquiry," when U.S. agencies failed to pool information about known al-Qaida militants who were thus able to slip into the country.

In language that seems calculated to assuage the fears of privacy advocates, the bill states that "nothing in the amendments made by this section shall be deemed to constitute authority for the receipt, collection, or retention of information unless" it is "otherwise authorized by the Constitution, laws, or executive orders of the United States."

The Democratic staffer argued that "this is lawfully collected information. What sense does it make not to share it in an appropriately limited fashion," as envisaged in the bill?

Not good enough for the paranoia poster boy from the ACLU. Sparapani contends that in the wake of the revelations about the National Security Agency program of warrantless counter-terrorist surveillance, the time for giving the administration the benefit of the doubt on such issues was past.

Meanwhile, the threat of domestic terrorism grows as evidenced by what happened in Canada recently. CBS NEWS, only three days ago, reported that U.S. officials believe recent incidents point to an imminent threat. The article stated:

The next attack here, officials predict, will bear no resemblance to Sept. 11. The casualty toll will not be that high, the target probably not that big. We may not even recognize it for what it is at first, they say. But it's coming — of that they seem certain.

But, the ACLU would have us caught with our pants down and our heads up our butts, crying "Who did that?"

If Tim Sparapani wants to see Swiss cheese he should get a brain scan.

Rest In Pieces

Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, one of the the most wanted terrorists in the world, is dead. He was killed in an airstrike near Baquba, Iraq, it was announced today.

While it is cause for celebration, the war is far from over. Zarqawi is only one of many who would cast their mantle of evil over the earth. This war will not end in our lifetime but for these spawn of Satan it will always end the same.

Only Following Orders

According to CIA documents released yesterday, back in 1958 we knew the whereabouts and the alias of Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann and did nothing.

After discovering the horrors of the concentration camps and seeing firsthand the heinous crimes of the Third Reich, allowing the mastermind of the Jewish extermination plan to remain free is unconscionable. Those members of our government that allowed this to happen seem no better than the perpetrators themselves.

In order to protect members of the West German government who were certainly guilty of collusion with Hitler's Nazis (
Hans Globke), the CIA turned a blind eye to the fact that Eichmann was living in Argentina using the alias Klement. Although he was not a card carrying member of the Nazi Party, Globke had served in the Jewish Affairs department of the Nazi government during World War II and was involved in writing laws designed to remove Jews from German society. The CIA worked closely with him and assisted the West German government in protecting him.

How sad, that after all the tragedy, we were still not moved to seek justice for those many victims. What a disgusting blemish on the character of our nation.

The good news is Eichmann was captured by a team of Mossad agents in 1960, later tried by an Israeli court, found guilty on all counts and sentenced to death.

Bilbray Beats Busby

Well. here's one house seat the donks didn't win. In California, Republican Brian Bilbray, has won the race against Francine "You don't need papers for voting" Busby. I guess encouraging illegals to register and vote didn't help her.

This was a race the Democrats were hoping would set a trend for gaining the House back in the fall. Bilbray is also the guy recently snubbed by John "Banana Amenesty" McCain.

Everything considered this is a joyful moment because the illegal loving amnesty crowd got put in their place and that is what every upcoming election needs to accomplish. Democrat or Republican, if they support this amnesty let's vote them out.

Oh, The Days Of The Kerry Bloggers

LA Observed tells us that on Thursday John Kerry met with a few liberal bloggers in California. Although requesting his remarks be off the record, some of the bloggers ignored him and posted what he said anyway. Even liberals can't trust liberals.

One blog wrote that Kerry "agreed completely with someone's assessment that everything that Bush does is solely for the purpose of looting the country. He basically said that Bush and his cohorts are criminals" and that "at some other point he referred to Supreme Court Justices Alito, Scalia, and Roberts as 'Idiots.'"

Although one might be suspicious of the leftwing sources that blogged these quotes, it is not hard to imagine them spewing from the arrogant mouth of John Kerry. Considering the college grades we saw from Kerry's published records, he is hardly in position to be calling anyone an idiot, let alone two men who have accomplished so much.

Kerry continues adding to his his unblemished record of duplicity and deceit. John, show us all what is in your 180.

Syrian Opposition Forms Government

Exiled Syrian opposition leaders announced the creation of a united front on Friday aimed at forming a transitional government to bring about "regime change" from President Bashar Assad to democracy.

Former Vice President Abdel-Halim Khaddam, who broke with Assad last year after serving under his late father Hafez Assad, told a news conference: "All factions of the Syrian opposition and activists have come to the conclusion that the regime in Syria has to be changed."

He spoke after a two-day meeting in Brussels of Syrian opposition groups, including the Muslim Brotherhood, liberals, communists and Kurds, at which they drew up a joint declaration on a six-month transition period for a post-Assad era.

One has to wonder how this will come about in a country as repressive as Syria. Assad keeps a tight lid on everything. Also, even though the opposition claims to be moderate and says it would not impose Islamic Sharia law, how moderate can any group be that includes the Muslim Brotherhood.

Going, Going, Completely Gone

Over at Memri TV is a video clip #1147 of a Palestinian auction to raise money for the Hamas government. The item up for bid is the jacket of Salah Shehada, the top man on Israel's Most Wanted list until he was eliminated by an F-16 missle attack back in 2002.

Read the transcript at Memri, it contains some exchanges between the auctioneer and the crowd. For example:

Auctioneer: Who is your leader?

Crowd: The Prophet.

Auctioneer: What is your constitution?

Crowd: The Koran.

Auctioneer: What is your path?

Crowd: The Jihad.

Auctioneer: What is your highest aspiration?

Crowd: Death for the sake of Allah.

Auctioneer: Let all the countries of the world hear: What is your highest aspiration?

Crowd: Death for the sake of Allah.

And people want us to negotiate with these psychotics?

Learn To Delude

Schools in Victoria, Australia are being asked to abolish the words "mother" and "father" in a new teachers manual. In this latest catering to the gay agenda lunacy, teachers are asked to use "parent" or "carer" instead.

The manual, called Learn to Include, says schools should also put up posters of gay celebrities and avoid gender specific toys. It encourages having pupils as young as five act out scenarios in which they have two moms and have discussions about discrimination.

The Marines Really Know How To Maximize The Use Of Camouflage.


Covert Conspiracy In The UK

In articles from the Telegraph, the terrorist threat facing Britain is described as having developed into a "covert conspiracy" involving hundreds of men and women living ordinary lives in the nation's suburbs, security sources have revealed.

Unbeknown to their families and friends, they form a silent 1,200-strong "army" of terrorists. They are believed to be involved in at least 20 major plots that they hope will bring death and destruction to Britain.

An example is the arrest of two brothers, Mohammed Abul Kahar, 23, and Abul Koyair, 20, on Friday.

It is believed they were were planning a chemical attack in London similar to the one on the Tokyo subway. Police said they were searching for an "improvised device rather than a sophisticated weapon" capable of releasing chemicals.

The Telegraph reports it is suspected that a new atrocity was planned on or close to the anniversary of the July 7 attacks on London, when four terrorists killed themselves and 52 others, and injured more than 700 people. This would have provided a rallying call to al-Qa'eda sympathisers to carry on their "jihad" - or holy war - against the West.

It certainly seems likely that based on what has just happened in Canada and the UK that we will shortly see the same sort of activity here on our own shores. Perhaps the signal has been given to the Muslim sleeper cells in the West to join the war in earnest.

All the more reason to secure the borders, north and south, the ports, east and west, and make certain we monitor who and what are entering this country. Despite all the pandering to political correctness, it is obvious from those apprehended in Canada and the UK that it is still mostly young Muslim males that are involved in these plots. Domestic surveillance of potential cell members in this country should be going on 24/7 because what we don't know can hurt us.

It is time to quit making the moonbats happy and stop scrutinizing grannies at airports. We should shine the spotlight on the likely terrorist candidates.

Prison Fellowship Ministries To Appeal Decision

Why would you attack a successful religious prison program unless it's out of sheer hostility toward Christianity? Prison Fellowship Ministries, founded by Chuck Colson was sued by Americans United for Separation of Church and State.

U.S. District Judge Robert Pratt has ordered them to cease the program at the Newton Correctional Facility in Iowa and repay the state $1.53 million.

Ministry president Mark Earley said in a statement Friday that the group plans to appeal the ruling and believes its program is constitutional.

"This decision, if allowed to stand, will enshrine religious discrimination," Earley said. "It has attacked the right of people of faith to operate on a level playing field in the public arena and to provide services to those who volunteered to receive them."

This program has met some real needs, I am familiar with it and have heard, first hand, from wardens and former prisoners about the good things it has accomplished.

How mean spirited can one be to wish to deprive those incarcerated from benefiting from the word of God, a chance some of them have never had before. The reverend Barry Lynn and his group have much to answer for.

Thanks to CNN.
