This is What a Traitor Looks Like


Berkeley's City Council has voted to abrogate the rule of law in their city, and to commit overt treason against the United States:
BERKELEY, Calif. — Local officials in this liberal city say it's time for the U.S. Marines to move out.

The City Council has voted to tell the Marines their downtown recruiting station is not welcome and "if recruiters choose to stay, they do so as uninvited and unwelcome guests."...

"I believe in the Code Pink cause. The Marines don't belong here, they shouldn't have come here, and they should leave," said Berkeley Mayor Tom Bates.
Here is a picture of an American traitor, Berkely Mayor Tom Bates.

Master Bates, you and your treasonous council are unwelcome in my country. If you choose to stay, you do so as uninvited and unwelcome guests.

Reporters Might Be Threatened, Quick, Arrest Somebody

This just in from the Reporters Without Borders website [emphasis added]:
30.01 - Italy: threatening letters sent to five Italian dailies A letter containing two bullets and a message with death threats was left at the headquarters of the Il Giornale newspaper on 11 January. It was addressed to former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, the newspaper’s owner, and ended with the words “Allah is great.” A letter containing a single revolver bullet was received on 28 January at the Northern League daily, La Padania. It was accompanied by a letter proffering threats against the Northern League’s leader, Umberto Bossi, and also ended with the words “Allah is great.”

The La Repubblica daily has reported on its website that it, too, received a letter containing a bullet and death threats yesterday. It was addressed to the newspaper’s managing editor, Ezio Mauro. Similar letters addressed to the managing editor of the Corriere della Sera, Paolo Mieli, and to the managing editor of the business daily Il Sole 24 Ore, also containing bullets and threatening messages, were intercepted during the night of 28 January at a mail sorting centre.

Reporters Without Borders voices its concern about these threats and urges the authorities to pursue investigations aimed at identifying those responsible.
Oh, I get it. When journalists feel threatened, they want an immediate investigation. When they don't, they want to sabotage ongoing, secret efforts by western governments (especially if the western government is headed by a Republican).

Well, I don't know. We don't want to rush into an investigation like a bunch of cowboys, now. Could take some time to make sure we aren't trampling any terrorists' rights here, y'know. Guess we could put Barney on it. Deputy Fife!

Don't worry, Barney will coordinate with Inspector Clouseau.

Al Qaeda Admits Death of Commander in Afghanistan

From the Associated Press:
CAIRO, Egypt (AP) - One al-Qaida's top commanders in Afghanistan and a key liaison with Taliban, Abu Laith al-Libi, was killed according to a Web site used by militant groups.
"We congratulate the Islamic nation for the martyrdom of the sheik, the lion, Abu Laith al-Libi," said the banner which appeared in a section of the Web site reserved for affiliated militant groups and is not open to public posting.
That "martyrdom" consisted of being exterminated like a cockroach as a missile struck the safehouse in which al-Libi cowered:
One intelligence official in the area, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said a the bodies of those killed were badly mangled by the force of the explosion and it was difficult to identify those killed. The official estimated 12 people were killed, including Arabs, Turkmen from central Asia and local Taliban members.
Taliban flambeé au jus. Excellent.

More Proof That Life is not a Movie

A former model who headed a glamor bodyguard company in Russia was killed trying to prevent her Porsche from being carjacked:
Russia's most famous female bodyguard Anna Loginova has been killed after failing to prevent her own Porsche being carjacked.

The glamorous 29-year-old died from head injuries after clinging on to the door handle and being dragged along the street at high speed as the car screeched away.
Sadly, she seems to have believed her own press and paid for that belief with her life. And, of course, having her own car stolen like this would have been very bad for business.

Movies, television shows, and role-playing games all seem to giving women the message lately that size doesn't matter, that a 110 pound woman who takes a few jiu-jitsu lessons can foil a 220 pound male criminal. The laws of physics disagree.

NOW Kicks Teddy in the Nuts

The New York chapter of the National Organization for [some] Women has issued this press release following the Swimmer's endorsement of Barack Obama:
Senator Ted Kennedy Betrays Women by Not Standing for Hillary Clinton for President;
Ultimate Betrayal Felt by Women Everywhere

ALBANY, NY -- January 28 -- Women have just experienced the ultimate betrayal. Senator Kennedy’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton’s opponent in the Democratic presidential primary campaign has really hit women hard. Women have forgiven Kennedy, stuck up for him, stood by him, hushed the fact that he was late in his support of Title IX, the ERA, the Family Leave and Medical Act to name a few. Women have buried their anger that his support for the compromises in No Child Left Behind and the Medicare bogus drug benefit brought us the passage of these flawed bills. We have thanked him for his ardent support of many civil rights bills, BUT women are always waiting in the wings.

And now the greatest betrayal! We are repaid with his abandonment! He’s picked the new guy over us. He’s joined the list of progressive white men who can’t or won’t handle the prospect of a woman president who is Hillary Clinton (they will of course say they support a woman president, just not “this” one). “They” are Howard Dean and Jim Dean (Yup! That’s Howard’s brother) who run DFA (that’s the group and list from the Dean campaign that we women helped start and grow). They are Alternet, Progressive Democrats of America,, Kucinich lovers and all the other groups that take women's money, say they’ll do feminist and women’s rights issues one of these days, and conveniently forget to mention women and children when they talk about poverty or human needs or America’s future or whatever.

This latest move by Kennedy, is so telling about the status of and respect for women’s rights, women’s voices, women’s equality, women’s authority and our ability – indeed, our obligation - to promote and earn and deserve and elect, unabashedly, a President that is the first woman after centuries of men who “know what’s best for us.”
I could almost feel sorry for the Landwhale. Still, there's no mention of Chappaquiddick or the name, "Mary Jo." She was abandoned by Teddy and NOW.

New York Times Attacks John McCain

By endorsing him:
We have strong disagreements with all the Republicans running for president. The leading candidates have no plan for getting American troops out of Iraq. They are too wedded to discredited economic theories and unwilling even now to break with the legacy of President Bush. We disagree with them strongly on what makes a good Supreme Court justice.

Still, there is a choice to be made, and it is an easy one. Senator John McCain of Arizona is the only Republican who promises to end the George Bush style of governing from and on behalf of a small, angry fringe. With a record of working across the aisle to develop sound bipartisan legislation, he would offer a choice to a broader range of Americans than the rest of the Republican field.
Surely the NYT's editorial board realizes that, as an alleged news organization that has actively sought defeat for America in the War on Terror, their thumbs up has almost the same degree of negative impact as would endorsements by the Ku Klux Klan or the Benedict Arnold Society.

So, does this mean they really do like McCain, or do they see him as the strongest competition for their own party, the Democrats, and hope to destroy his campaign?

Locking the Barn Door After the Horse Is Gone

From an Agence France Presse story about Hillary defending Bill's shrill attacks on Barack Obama [emphasis added]:
Obama's campaign said it was unbecoming for a former commander-in-chief to be engaging in harsh attacks against a fellow Democrat and some party figures have advised Bill Clinton to tone down his words or risk tarnishing his presidential legacy.

"I think it's not presidential, it's not in keeping with the image of a former president, and I'm frankly surprised that he is taking this approach," said former Senate Democratic leader Tom Daschle, who has endorsed Obama.
Umm...impeachment, disbarment, stanky cigar, hosed down little blue dress, bimbo eruptions, rape accusation, charges of unwanted fondling? Bill's antics are very much in keeping with the image of this former president.

Padilla Gets Away With 17 years

Domestic al Qaeda terrorist Jose Padilla has been sentenced; unfortunately, the sentence isn't death, or even life:
MIAMI - Convicted terrorism conspirator Jose Padilla on Tuesday was sentenced to 17 years and four months in prison.
His co-conspirators got even less time:
The other two defendants are 45-year-old Adham Amin Hassoun, a computer programmer of Palestinian descent who allegedly recruited Padilla, and 46-year-old Kifah Wael Jayyousi, an engineer and schools administrator originally from Jordan who provided finances and propaganda for Islamic extremists in Chechnya, Afghanistan, Somalia and elsewhere, according to trial testimony.

Cooke sentenced Hassoun to 15 years and eight months. Jayyousi received 12 years and eight months.
Padilla's lawyers had the stones to whine that he deserved a lesser sentence because he was treated harshly. Maybe some inmate will show this scumbag what "harsh" really is.

Why do we do it? Patriotism. No really.

That, and the fact that Rusty thinks its cool that the inner circle of the Taliban knows his name. And wants him dead.

But mostly the patriotism. Not true patriotism as defined by the Left, mind you. You know, dissent. The kind of dissent where the patriot wants his country to lose in a war.
We have two Taliban websites left that are hosted in Europe. Be sure to email their providers. Keep your fingers crossed.

Still 32 of 34 is 94 percent. That's an A on about any scale.

Al Qaeda's US Allies Acknowledge 'Unproductive Year,' Will Redeploy

From the Politico via the Drudge Report:
After a series of legislative defeats in 2007 that saw the year end with more U.S. troops in Iraq than when it began, a coalition of anti-war groups is backing away from its multimillion-dollar drive to cut funding for the war and force Congress to pass timelines for bringing U.S. troops home.

In recognition of hard political reality, the groups instead will lower their sights and push for legislation to prevent President Bush from entering into a long-term agreement with the Iraqi government that could keep significant numbers of troops in Iraq for years to come.
The revised goal is actually sensible, since responsible members of Congress should be involved in long range international agreements.

On the other hand, a sudden attack of common sense isn't enough to excuse the years of useful idiocy on the part of these antiwar groups that, without question, encouraged terrorist leaders, thereby contributing to US casualties, which were then used to grief-pimp opposition to the war.

Court Rules That Chimpanzees Aren't People

Sort of, and, of course there will be an appeal. But, it now appears that the Austrian court is satisfied that Matthew Hiasl Pan is, in fact, a chimpanzee, rather than a human being. The real shame is that the lawyers and the idiots who hired them, who have just wasted thousands of hours of everyone's time arguing that Matthew Hiasl Pan, chimpanzee, is a person, are considered human, instead of being locked up in cages with their feces-flinging clients.

From the Associated Press:
VIENNA, Austria - Austria's Supreme Court has dashed hopes by animal rights activists to have a chimpanzee declared a person, a statement suggested Tuesday.

The court recently rejected a petition to appoint a trustee for the chimp, named Matthew Hiasl Pan, the Vienna-based Association Against Animal Factories said, and subsequently vowed to contact the European Court of Human Rights over the matter.
This is not a person. It is either a chimp, or an animal rights lawyer.

President Saleh,

It has been over seven years now since our son and his mates were brutally murdered in your country on October 12, 2000 when terrorists attacked the USS Cole and murdered 17 innocent young sailors and injured 39 more. Let me begin by thanking all the Yemenis who called us at our home and sent letters of condolence. The kindness, compassion, warmth and sympathy expressed in those calls and letters comforted us and gave us a strength that we carry with us today.

Red Chinese Beat Blogger to Death

Chinese blogger Wei Wenhua was filming a confrontation between villagers and municipal officials on his cell phone when fifty or so of the public servants set upon, and beat him to death.

Police have detained 24 municipal inspectors and are investigating more than 100 in the death of Wei Wenhua, a 41-year-old construction company executive, Xinhua reported on Friday.

The swift action by officials reflects concerns that the incident could spark larger protests against authorities, whose heavy-handed approach often arouses resentment.

Arab Press Sabotaged First Fallujah Attack

Propaganda from so-called "news" outlets al Jazeera and al Arabiya was cited, in a leaked secret intelligence assessment, for cutting short the first attack on Fallujah in April 2004.

From the report, via a story in the Washington Times:
"The outcome of a purely military contest in Fallujah was always a foregone conclusion — coalition victory," read the assessment, prepared by analysts at the U.S. Army's National Ground Intelligence Center, or NGIC.

"But Fallujah was not simply a military action, it was a political and informational battle. ... The effects of media coverage, enemy information operations and the fragility of the political environment conspired to force a halt to U.S. military operations," concluded the assessment.
Of course, American media outlets did their part as well, passing on the al Jazeera and al Arabiya reports as if they were actually coming from journalists [emphasis added]:
The authors said the press was "crucial to building political pressure to halt military operations," from the Iraqi government and the Coalition Provisional Authority, which resulted in a "unilateral cease-fire" by U.S. forces on April 9, after just five days of combat operations...

Crucial to the failure, the authors said, was the role of the Arabic satellite news channels Al Jazeera and Al Arabiya.
From the report itself, as published by Wikileaks, are facts that never seemed to find their way into al Jazeera or al Arabiya "news" reports:
• (S//REL TO USA, MCFI) Insurgents deliberately fought from sensitive areas such as mosques, schools, and residential areas. Mosques served as command centers, fighting positions, weapon caches, rallying points, and hospitals. Minarets were used by snipers, observers, and forward observers.

"Something stinks in New Hampshire," a commenter posted on the popular liberal site

Oh c'mon now, who believes that the Clintons would ever be involved in something this unsavory?

Iran Claims Video of Speedboats Faked

Proving that it is impossible to understimate the intelligence of the mullahcracy in Iran, its leaders are claiming that the US faked video of Iranian speedboats harassing American warships in the Strait of Hormuz:
And the state-run Press TV quoted a spokesman for Iran's Revolutionary Guard Navy as saying that the video "had been compiled using file pictures and the audio had been fabricated."
Just a small conspiracy involving hundreds of ordinary sailors and officers, mind you, though the claim should be sufficient to inflame the morons at DailyKos and DU.

Bicycles Shouldn't Play Chicken With Semis

WASHINGTON - Iranian boats harassed and provoked three American Navy ships in the strategic Strait of Hormuz, threatening to blow up the vessels, U.S. officials said Monday.

Iran’s Foreign Ministry said Monday the confrontation was “something normal” and was resolved, suggesting the Iranian boats had not recognized the U.S. vessels. National Security Council spokesman Gordon Johndroe said the Bush administration urges Iranians “to refrain from such provocative actions that could lead to a dangerous incident in the future.”

Military officials told NBC News that two U.S. Navy destroyers and one frigate were heading into the Persian Gulf through the international waters of the Strait of Hormuz when five armed "fast boats" of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard approached at high speed, darting in and out of the formation.
One of the boats reportedly approached within 200 yards, and was likely within seconds of being destroyed.

The big question: were the boat captains acting on behalf of Iran, or did they do this on their own? Overzealousness is one of the risks Ahmadinejad and the mullahs run by using fear of Americans to shore up their support.

Really Clumsy Moments in Propaganda History

The year has barely started and we already have a contender for the Running Dog Lackey of the Capitalist Imperialistic Hegemony Award. The Doggy, in the form of a sculpture depicting a lapdog licking his testicles, goes to that member of the MSM who most clumsily tries to forward his own personal political agenda. Competition is fierce.

Now, the thing about propaganda is, it's best to stick as close to the truth as possible. Otherwise, you end up putting out laughers like this:
A principal architect of the disastrous presidency of George W. Bush, Karl Rove, 57...
This is the opening line to a "Proust Questionnaire" on Karl Rove, and an admission that the writer was unable to outmaneuver Rove in the interview and make him expose his horns and forked tail.

By Proust's standard, one would have to consider FDR's Presidency a mega-disaster, what with an average of 9,009 American deaths per month during WWII, American citizens dumped into internment camps, and the empowerment of the Soviet Union.

And Lincoln? Supercatastrophickiciousexinghabeascorpus! More Americans killed than all other wars...combined; newpaper editors thrown into jail for sedition; accused spies held without formal charges and without the right of habeas corpus!

Stack that up against what we have today. A President who responded to direct attack - in Manhattan - with the destruction of two brutal and repressive regimes that were, just coincidentally, exporting terrorism; no followup terrorist attack for six years and counting; and re-election for a second term. And news media, such as the New York Times and Vanity Fair allowed to expose secret counter-terror programs - even print diagrams telling terrorists exactly where to shoot Marines for maximum effect - without a single editor seeing the inside of a jail cell.

Please bring us more disasters like this. Oh yeah, and more boneheads like this doctrinaire Vanity Fair idiot (and editors stupid enough to let them spout such nonsense).
