Galloway Begged the Police to Detain Us
I was informed by my friend, Peyvand Khorsandi about a Stop the War meeting in the House of Commons tonight where Galloway was speaking.RTWT. (MORE HERE.)
We decided to go along and meet this stooge of dictators face to face.
While queuing to go through the security, we told the policeman who was directing the people to different queues that we were going to Committee Room 19. Two of the Stop the War enthusiasts heard us and cheerily said to us 'Oh we are going to the same meeting as well. Are you Palestenians?' To which we replied 'We like Palestinians but we are Iranians'.
The two women got even more excited and replied 'Oh we also support Iran against the West!'. They must have thought all Iranians support the regime in Iran.
When I replied 'So why don't you go and live in Iran and allow two Iranian women to come here in your place and enjoy the same privileges you enjoy in the West', their initial enthusiasm was quickly turned into a shock. What a disappointment for them to find out we were not in the same ilk as them.
... As we entered the committee room, no one tried to stop us but the stares and the whispers indicated that many were uncomfortable about our presence. I quickly scanned the room, full of 'useful idiots', SWP's John Rees and Lindsay German were there in the back, but I had managed to get a seat right next to Galloway himself. I was told to move because that chair was reserved for another speaker. Well that was the closest I got to the Supreme Leader I thought and happily obliged to move one chair away.
Press TV presenter and Respect MP, Galloway started the meeting and it wasn't long before he went on about UK police brutality during the Gaza protests in London!
... I shouted 'How can you go on about police brutality in this country when you work for a regime whose police beat up, kill and rape peaceful protesters?'. That was it. Peyvand started backing me up as well by asking him how he can go on about police brutality in UK but remain silent about all the crimes that are going in Iran? and guess what?
The same Galloway who was going on about UK police brutality had to ask the police not only to remove us from the room but he also insisted they detain us in the House of Commons police room until their meeting was over and they had left the building.
You can't write a better script than that, can you? what a hypocrite Galloway and Stop the War mob are!
The same brutal 'Fascist' police they were referring to had to help them to hold their meeting.
GALLOWAY EPITOMIZES THE LEFT-JIHAD ALLIANCE. WHETHER IN GAZA OR SADDAM'S IRAQ OR IRAN.
FOR THINGS LIKE THIS, POLITICIANS LIKE GALLOWAY SHOULD BE CHARGED WITH TREASON AND SEDITION AND TRIED AND CONVICTED AND EXECUTED.
Other than that, Obama has been a complete failure.
A miserable failure.
Chief and primary among Obama's miscalculations was this: he ran as a post-partisan centrist.
By doing this he did not gain a mandate for the leftist policies he's trying to force down America's throat.
So he predetermined his political downfall.
This was why he tried to do so much so fast - the Porkulus and Obamacare and Cap & Trade in the first year: he felt that he could force it all through quickly and people might not catch on before the mid-term realignment. By then it wood be too late: America would be way on down the road to serfdom.
But his Chicago Machine-style opened people's eyes fast.
And independents and moderates who thought they were voting for a charming charismatic centrist discovered that Joe the Plumber was right.
They feel BURNED, and won't be burned again.
Obama is through. Done. Cooked. Overcooked Burnt.
A lame duck.
Have no fears: Speaker Boehner and majority leader McConnell will save the day.
OBAMA MORE FORCEFULLY DEFENDS TURKISH/MUSLIM GENOCIDE AGAINST CHRISTIAN ARMENIANS THAN HE DOES ISRAEL AT ALL
BBC: US will not adopt 'genocide' bill
The Obama administration has said it will seek to block a controversial bill describing as genocide the World War I killing of Armenians by Turks.
A congressional panel on Thursday approved the resolution, paving the way for a possible vote by the House.
But US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the administration would "work very hard" to prevent this.
Turkey voiced strong protests after the vote and recalled its ambassador from Washington for consultations.
Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said his country had been accused of a crime it did not commit, adding the resolution would harm Turkish-US relations.
President Abdullah Gul said Turkey - a key Nato ally of the US - would "not be responsible for the negative results that this event may lead to".
Change of position
Mrs Clinton - who had urged the House Foreign Affairs Committee not to hold the vote - said on Friday: "We are against this decision. Now we believe that the US Congress will not take any decision on this subject."
... During his campaign for the 2008 election, Mr Obama promised to brand the mass killings genocide.
BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA DEFENDING MUSLIM GENOCIDE OF CHRISTIANS!? WHOODATHUNKIT POSSIBLE.
CLEARLY, OBAMA IS SIDING WITH MUSLIM TURKEY AGAINST CHRISTIAN ARMENIA.
OBAMA ALSO SIDES WITH MUSLIMS AGAINST JEWS:
LAST WEEK, OBAMA CLEARLY SET OUT WHAT HIS CHIEF GOAL IN PALESTINIAN-ISRAELI TALKS: ESTABLISHING ANOTHER ARAB STATE, AND NOT ESTABLISHING DEFENSIBLE BORDERS FOR ISRAEL.
TURKEY, THE PALESTINIANS AND OBAMA ARE ENEMIES OF THE WEST.
THEY SHOULD BE TREATED AS SUCH:
- TURKEY SHOULD BE THROWN OUT OF NATO,
- ARABS SHOULD NOT GET A STATE,
- AND OBAMA SHOULD BE IMPEACHED.
MATT ARGUED THAT CLOTURE - WHICH IS HOLDING UP OBAMACARE IN THE SENATE - IS CONTRARY TO THE FOUNDING FATHERS' INTENT BECAUSE IT WASN'T IN THE CONSTITUTION; (CLOTURE IS A SENATE RULE; THE CONSTITUTION GIVES THE SENATE THE RIGHT TO MAKE ITS OWN RULES).
BUT HERE'S THE REAL BOTTOM-LINE:
- THE FOUNDING FATHERS INTENDED THE SENATE HAVE A COMPLETELY UNLIMITED DEBATE.
- CLOTURE WAS DESIGNED & PASSED BY THE OBAMALIKE POTUS WOODROW WILSON TO END UNLIMITED DEBATE. THAT WAS 1917.
- IT WAS ORIGINALLY SET AT 2/3'S OF THE SENATE TO END DEBATE AND FORCE A VOTE.
- IT WAS REDUCED IN THE 1979 TO 60 VOTES.
- REDUCING IT EVEN FURTHER WOULD TAKES US EVEN FURTHER FROM THE FOUNDING FATHER'S INTENT - NOT CLOSER TO IT.
ORIGINAL INTENT IS SOMETHING THE LEFT REJECTS.
THAT'S BECAUSE LEFTISTS ARE CHIEFLY CONCERNED WITH ACHIEVING THEIR SOCIALIST GOALS - AT ANY COST, AND THE US CONSTITUTION IS BASICALLY AN ANTI-STATIST DOCUMENT WHICH MAKES ESTABLISHING A SOCIALISTIC GOVERNMENT VERY DIFFICULT. (THANK GOD!)
THAT'S WHY LEFTISTS FAVOR TREATING THE US CONSTITUTION LIKE A "LIVING DOCUMENT" - SO THEY CAN TWIST ITS MEANING TO SUIT THEIR SOCIALIST AND GRAMSCIAN GOALS.
- REPEAT: THE CONSTITUTION INTENDED SENATORS TO BE ABLE TO DEBATE ALL ISSUES AND BILLS UNTIL EVERY SENATOR WAS HEARD TO HIS SATISFACTION.
- REPEAT: CLOTURE REQUIRING 65 VOTES (AS IT DID FROM 1919 TO 1979) DIMINISHES THAT. CLOTURE REQUIRING 60 VOTES (AS IT HAS BEEN SINCE 1979) DIMINISHES EVEN MORE.
- REDUCING CLOTURE TO A MERE MAJORITY VOTE WOULD BE CONTRARY TO WHAT THE FOUNDING FATHERS WANTED.
- IT WOULD MEAN THE MAJORITY COULD ALWAYS END DEBATE - AND THAT WOULD STIFLE DEMOCRACY, NOT ENHANCE IT.
NOT SURPRISING: HE'S A LEFTIST.

A study found that increasing the oxygen content in alcohol enabled people to process alcohol more rapidly and therefore avoid some of its negative effects.
Oxygen is used to process alcohol in the body and turn it into water and carbon dioxide.
By increasing dissolved oxygen concentrations in alcoholic drinks it is possible to help the body do the job, the study found.
Researchers carried out a series of tests with volunteers drinking beverages enriched with different amounts of oxygen.
Their blood-alcohol levels were then tested and it was found that alcohol was processed significantly quicker with drinks that had a higher oxygen content.
Professor Kwang-il Kwon, author of the study, said: "The oxygen-enriched alcohol beverage reduces plasma alcohol concentrations faster than a normal dissolved-oxygen alcohol beverage does.
"This could provide both clinical and real-life significance. The oxygen-enriched alcohol beverage would allow individuals to become sober faster, and reduce the side effects without a significant difference in alcohol's effects.
"Furthermore, the reduced time to a lower blood alcohol concentration may reduce alcohol-related accidents."
I'LL TAKE MINE ON THE ROCKS WITH A SPLASH OF WATER.
QUESTION: HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR A MAJOR BLOGGER TO CITE THIS STORY?

First the Obama Administration opened up the possibility of prosecuting CIA interrogators doing their jobs seeking information from terrorists. Then they tried to go after the Bush Administration lawyers who acted in good faith to protect us in the months after 9/11. Now some of the military brass are court-martialing three brave Navy SEALs for allegedly throwing a single punch at Iraqi terrorist leader Ahmed Hashim Abed. This is wrong.WHAT ABOUT BOB?
BOB KERREY, THAT IS - A DECORATED NAVY SEAL. FORMER SENATOR. DEMOCRAT CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENTIAL NOMINATION. 9/11 COMMISSION MEMBER. COLLEGE PRESIDENT.
HE IS SILENT.
IF HE WAS WILLING TO BE AS COURAGEOUS NOW AS HE WAS IN VIETNAM, THEN HE'D ATTACK OBAMA POLICIES AND DEFEND THE SEALS, TOO.
SADLY, JOE LIEBERMAN WAS THE LAST COURAGEOUS LIBERAL HAWK - AND THEY TOSSSED HIM FROM THE PARTY FOR IT.
THAT TELLS US EVERYTHING WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE DEMS.
KERREY: ARE YOU NO LONGER AS BRAVE AS LIEBERMAN?!?!
JERUSAELM MUSTN'T EVER BE DIVIDED AGAIN.
GUESS WHAT, IT WON'T BE.

The Axis of the Obsessed and Deranged
By FRANK RICHPublished: February 27, 2010
No one knows what history will make of the present — least of all journalists, who can at best write history’s sloppy first draft. But if I were to place an incautious bet on which political even will prove the most significant of February 2010, I wouldn’t choose the kabuki health care summit that generated all the ink and 24/7 cable chatter in Washington. I’d put my money instead on the murder-suicide of Andrew Joseph Stack III, the tax protester who flew a plane into an office building housing Internal Revenue Service employees in Austin, Tex., on Feb. 18. It was a flare with the dark afterlife of an omen.
...Stack was a lone madman, and it would be both glib and inaccurate to call him a card-carrying Tea Partier or a “Tea Party terrorist.” But he did leave behind a manifesto whose frothing anti-government, anti-tax rage overlaps with some of those marching under the Tea Party banner.
THEY MAKE BAGHDAD BOB LOOK LIKE WALTER CRONKITE.
Krugman was not impressed with Kyl's argument that extending unemployment benefits created an incentive that could actually increase unemployment.BWAHAHAHA!Krugman scoffs: "To me, that's a bizarre point of view—but then, I don't live in Mr. Kyl's universe."
What does textbook economics have to say about this question? Here is a passage from a textbook called "Macroeconomics":
- Public policy designed to help workers who lose their jobs can lead to structural unemployment as an unintended side effect.
- . . . In other countries, particularly in Europe, benefits are more generous and last longer. The drawback to this generosity is that it reduces a worker's incentive to quickly find a new job. Generous unemployment benefits in some European countries are widely believed to be one of the main causes of "Eurosclerosis," the persistent high unemployment that affects a number of European countries.
So it turns out that what Krugman calls Sen. Kyl's "bizarre point of view" is, in fact, textbook economics.
The authors of that textbook are Paul Krugman and Robin Wells.
Miss Wells is also known as Mrs. Paul Krugman.
KRUGMAN IS ONE OF THE LOWEST FORMS OF LIFE ON THE PLANET.
NO WONDER HE'S A LEADING LIGHT OF THE LEFT!
UPDATE: THE HYPCOCRITICAL COLUMN IS THE MOST EMAILED ARTCILE INTHE NTYIMES TODAY:
The United States government has committed to playing a role in indirect talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, and promised that if the talks were to fail, the U.S. will assign blame and take action, according to a document sent by the U.S. to the Palestinian Authority, which Haaretz obtained on Friday.
The U.S. government sent the document to the Palestinians responding to their inquires regarding the U.S. initiative to launch indirect talks between Israel and the Palestinians.
"We expect both parties to act seriously and in good faith. If one side, in our judgment, is not living up to our expectations, we will make our concerns clear and we will act accordingly to overcome that obstacle," it was written.
OBAMA DOESN'T CONSIDER THE SECURITY OF THE LONE PLURALIST DEMOCRACY AND THE ONLY JUDEO-CHRISTIAN AND WESTERN STATE IN THE REGION TO BE PARAMOUNT.
This commitment by the U.S. was a determining factor in the Palestinians' and the Arab League's decision to agree to the U.S. proposal on indirect talks.
The document also reveals that U.S. involvement will include "sharing messages between the parties and offering our own ideas and bridging proposals."
The U.S. also emphasized that their main concern is establishing a Palestinian state.
"Our core remains a viable, independent and sovereign Palestinian State with contiguous territory that ends the occupation that began in 1967," the document read.
THAT TELLS YOU EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT HIM - AND THE LEFT.
NYTIMES: Muslim Group Says Police Detained 7 Praying Men
The nation's largest Muslim advocacy organization has filed a complaint with police in a Las Vegas suburb, saying seven Muslim men from southern California were detained and told they were acting suspiciously while praying in a shopping center parking lot.THAT'S HOW IT STARTS - CREEPING SHARIA...
The Council on American-Islamic Relations said Friday it filed the complaint this week against the Henderson Police Department because it did not understand what was suspicious about the men.
''Our main concern is the police department looking at praying and the way they looked as probable cause for investigating those men,'' said CAIR spokeswoman Munira Syeda. ''They did nothing illegal.''
... The group says the men, whom it identified as being of various ethnic backgrounds including Middle Eastern and south Asian, were performing one of five required Muslim daily prayers in the lot while stopped to buy gas and food Dec. 20 during a roadtrip.
As they returned to their car, they were stopped by three officers and kept for about 40 minutes while three officers checked their backgrounds and searched their car, Syeda said.... A CAIR attorney said in a statement that the group was seeking discipline against the officers involved, changes to officer training and compensation for the emotional distress of the men.
''The scope and length of the stop was not reasonable under the circumstances, nor did it serve any legitimate investigative purpose,'' CAIR lawyer Ameena Qazi wrote in a letter to Henderson police.
UPDATE: THIS TYPE OF CREEPING SHARIA IS A FORM OF "LAWFARE":
the Italian author Oriana Fallaci had to live in fear of extradition to Switzerland because of her anti-Islam book ‘The Rage and the Pride’. The Dutch cartoonist Nekschot was arrested in his home in Amsterdam by 10 police men because of his anti-Islam drawings. Here in Britain, the American author Rachel Ehrenfeld was sued by a Saudi businessman for defamation. In the Netherlands Ayaan Hirsi Ali and in Australia two Christian pastors were sued. I could go on and on. Ladies and gentlemen, all throughout the West freedom loving people are facing this ongoing ‘legal jihad’. This is Islamic ‘lawfare’.(THAT'S FROM A SPEECH BY GEERT WILDERS - RTWT!)
AND THEN IT HEADS HERE:
AND IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT THEY SUE YOU AND THREATEN VIOLENCE AGAINST YOU AND THEN THIS IS HOW IT ENDS:
BUT IT NEEDN'T HAPPEN - AND EVEN IF IT DOES, IT'S NOT IRREVERSIBLE:
THE CATHEDRAL IN CORDOBA PROVES THAT IT'S NOT IRREVERSIBLE - IF WE FIGHT BACK! (IT WAS ONCE A MOSQUE AND IS NOW A CATHEDRAL)
THE SOONER AND THE HARDER WE FIGHT BACK THE BETTER!
GOOD NEWS FOR THE COUNTER-JIHAD HERE!

Dubai Police Chief on Thursday said a Hamas member leaked travel information about Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Mabhouh into Israel’s Mossad spy agency. Al-Mabhouh was murdered on Jan.19 in Dubai.IMHO: THIS WAS A FATAH EGYPT HIT.
In an interview with Al Arabiya TV, to be aired Friday, Lt. Gen. Dahi Khalfan said "Had we known who he was, we would not have allowed him in to Dubai. We do allow officials from Hamas’ political office, but not members involved in secretive work "
According to Khalfan, the culprits also made several mistakes that helped in identifying them like the way they were disguised. "For example, one of them was disguised as a tennis player and it was very obvious that he is not athletic at all and that he never played tennis in his entire life. It was also not logical that he spends hours on end in the hotel lobby with the tennis gear instead of going to play."
Mabhouh was betrayed from within, stressed Khalfan. "Someone from inside Hamas and who was close to him leaked information about his whereabouts to the Israel."
As for a Palestinian man detained in Dubai for alleged links to the case, Khalfan refused to give information about his political affiliation. "I personally do not care whether he is from Hamas or Fatah, but the U.A.E. is not a battlefield for warring factions."
IT'S NOT CO2 IN THE AIR.
Discovery, a First, Could Spur Exploration of Distant Mid-Ocean Ridge
From a Columbia University press release:
Scientists at Columbia’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory have found evidence of hydrothermal vents on the seafloor near Antarctica, formerly a blank spot on the map for researchers wanting to learn more about seafloor formation and the bizarre life forms drawn to these extreme environments.
Hydrothermal vents spew volcanically heated seawater from the planet’s underwater mountain ranges—the vast mid-ocean ridge system, where lava erupts and new crust forms. Chemicals dissolved in those vents influence ocean chemistry and sustain a complex web of organisms, much as sunlight does on land. In recent decades more than 220 vents have been discovered worldwide, but so far no one has looked for them in the rough and frigid waters off Antarctica.From her lab in Palisades, N.Y., geochemist Gisela Winckler recently took up the search. By analyzing thousands of oceanographic measurements, she and her Lamont colleagues pinpointed six spots on the remote Pacific Antarctic Ridge, about 2,000 miles from New Zealand, the closest inhabited country, and 1,000 miles from the west coast of Antarctica, where they think vents are likely to be found. The sites are described in a paper published THIS WEEK in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.
IT'S VOLCANIC ACTIVITY UNDER THE SEA.
AND IT AIN'T GOT NUTTIN' TO DI WITH HUMANITY.
IOW: AGW = TFBS.
As genetic modification goes it is a simple marriage of oil-rich marine algae and the easily grown canola seed crop, but its implications for global aquaculture are immense.
Most farmed fish species such as salmon, barramundi and kingfish need to eat fish to contain the sort of long-chain fatty acids which make them essential for a healthy human diet.
Aquaculture is the fastest-growing protein production sector in the food industry and already accounts for half of the fish consumed globally. By 2050 an additional 70 million tonnes will be required at the same time as wild caught stocks are predicted to be in severe decline.
The so-called Omega 3 Project is part of the CSIRO's Food Futures Flagship, which aims to add up to $3 billion to Australia's agrifood sector through frontier technology such as plant science.
Team member James Petrie says the next phase of its work will be to replicate its success with canola in a large-scale on-farm trial.
"We've got proof of concept, so what that means is we have proven a canola plant or a flax plant - an oil plant - is actually capable of making these long-chain omega 3 oils in the seed and building them up to relatively good levels," he said.
"What we've got to do now is take it out of the lab and onto the farm."
THIS IS GREAT NEWS. THE GREEN REVOLUTION SAVED A BILLION LIVES.
THE GM FOOD REVOLUTION WILL DO EVEN MORE GOOD - IF THE LEFT DOESN'T STOP IT. (EUROPE'S LEFT HAS SUCCESSFULLY KEPT FARMERS FROM GROWING GM FOOD - UNTIL NOW.)
AND AQUACULTURE WHICH CAN PROVIDE BOTH INCREDIBLY NUTRITIOUS FOOD AND ENERGY MIGHT BE THE KEY TO OUR FUTURE HEALTH AND PROSPERITY.
THIS PROVES - ONCE AGAIN - WE WILL INNOVATE OUR WAY INTO GREATER PROSPERITY - NOT REDISTRIBUTE OUR WAY TO IT.

SINCE MICHAEL FOOT'S 1983 LABOUR PARTY MANIFESTO." -
Michael Foot, the most improbable literary romantic to lead a major British party since Benjamin Disraeli, has died at the age of 96 after a turbulent political career that left him a much-loved but also deeply controversial figure.
A brilliant orator, steeped in Swift, Byron, Shelley and the great political struggles of the 17th century, Foot was first an incorrigible rebel who helped foster the left-right Bevanite split that damaged Labour throughout the 50s. A champion of British unilateral nuclear disarmament, one of the left's great postwar causes, he gradually moved towards office in the economic crisis of 1974.
Foot led Labour from 1980 to 1983, presiding over the party during the formation of the breakaway SDP. He resigned after Labour fell to a stunning defeat in the 1983 election, the voters having rejected a manifesto later called the "longest suicide note in history".
... n the crisis that followed the defeat of the Callaghan government and the rise of Margaret Thatcher, Foot led the Labour party from 1980 to 1983, presiding over it during the formation of the breakaway Social Democratic Party (SDP), which used his election over Denis Healey as the excuse for their defection.He stepped down in favour of his protege Neil Kinnock after Labour slumped to a stunning 145-seat defeat in the 1983 election in the wake of a manifesto that a Labour colleague called "the longest suicide note in history".
"The longest suicide note in history" is an epithet originally used by Gerald Kaufman to describe the United Kingdom Labour Party's left-wing 1983 election manifesto, which called for unilateral nuclear disarmament, withdrawal from the European Economic Community, abolition of the House of Lords and the re-nationalisation of recently de-nationalised industries like British Telecom, British Aerospace and the British Shipbuilding Corporation. Its far-left policies, along with the popularity gained by the current PM Margaret Thatcher over the Falklands War, contributed to an overwhelming victory for the incumbent Conservative party. This led to a turning point in the history of the party, which thereafter adopted more free market principles. The epithet referred not only to the orientation of the policies, but also to its marketing aspect. As a statement on internal democracy, party leader Michael Foot passed the edict that the manifesto would consist of all resolutions arrived at conference, making the manifesto over 700 pages long.FOOT WAS LIKE OBAMA I MANY WAYS:
- (1) BOTH'RE VERY LITERARY AND CONSIDERED GREAT ORATORS;
- (2) BOTH'RE HARDCORE LEFTISTS,
- (3) BOTH'RE DOVES;
- AND (4) BOTH LED THEIR PARTY DOWN TO DISASTROUS DEFEATS.
OBAMA LIED ALL DURING THE CAMPAIGN AND CLAIMED TO BE LIKE TONY BLAIR AND NOT MICHAEL FOOT.
FORTUNATELY FOR THE USA, AS POTUS OBAMA HAS HAD TO MAKE DECISIONS AND AS A RESULT HAS EXPOSED HIMSELF FOR WHAT HE TRULY IS.
AS A RESULT, INDEPENDENTS AND CENTRISTS WHO BELIEVED OBAMA WHEN HE REPEATEDLY SAID HE WAS A CENTRIST AND A POST-PARTISAN COALITION-BUILDER (AND AS A RESULT VOTED FOR HIM), HAVE SEEN THE LIGHT; HENCE THE ELECTION OF CHRISTIE, MCDONNELL AND BROWN.
ONE REASON OBAMA LIED WAS BECAUSE OF FOOT'S ELECTORAL FAILURE AND CLINTON'S AND BLAIR'S ELECTORAL SUCCESSES.
OBAMA AND HIS HANDLERS KNEW OBAMA COULDN'T WIN IF HE RAN AS HONESTLY FOR THE PRESIDENCY AS FOOT RAN FOR PM.
SO THEY LIED.
BUT THE TRUTH HAS WON.
THAT'S AS INEVITABLE AS DEATH ITSELF.
MICHAEL FOOT: RIP.
A U.S. congressional panel voted on Thursday to label as "genocide" the World War One-era massacre of Armenians by Turkish forces, prompting Turkey to recall its ambassador from Washington.THE MUSLIM TURKS MURDERED 1.5 MILLION CHRISTIAN ARMENIANS: IT WAS JIHAD BY ANOTHER NAME.
The House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee voted 23-22 to approve the non-binding resolution, which calls on President Barack Obama to ensure U.S. policy formally refers to the killings as genocide.
The action cleared the way for the measure to be considered by the full House but it was unclear whether it would actually come to a vote there. The Obama administration and Turkey had pressed lawmakers to drop the matter.
The vote triggered an immediate condemnation from Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan, who recalled Turkey's ambassador to Washington for consultations. Erdogan said he worried the measure would harm Turkish-U.S. ties and efforts by Muslim Turkey and Christian Armenia to end a century of hostility.
The vote put Obama in a tight spot between his desire to maintain good relations with Turkey, a Muslim but secular democracy that plays a vital role for U.S. interests from Iran to Afghanistan to the Middle East.
THE CONGRESSIONAL RESOLUTION MERELY RECOGNIZES THE TRUTH; THAT'S NOT ACCEPTABLE TO THE ISLAMIST PARTY DOMINATING TURKISH SOCIETY TODAY.
THIS SCHISM IS MERELY AN INDICATION OF HOW FAR TURKEY HAS SLID BACK UNDER ISLAMISM.
THEY ARE NO LONGER WESTERN - AS ATATURK HAD ENVISIONED TURKEY AD AS HE HAD TRANSFORMED THEM.
TURKEY IS NOW AN ISLAMIST STATE MORE IN IRAN'S CAMP THAN OURS OR THE WEST'S.
WE SHOULDN'T TRUST THEM AS MILITARY OR DIPLOMAITC ALLIES --- LEAST OF ALL NOW AS WE BATTLE GLOBAL JIHAD AND THE IRANIAN THREAT.
AS WE'VE POSTED NUMEROUS TIMES BEFORE: TURKEY SHOULD BE THROWN OUT OF NATO.

"The American people voted to restore integrity and honesty in Washington, D.C., and the Democrats intend to lead the most honest, most open and most ethical Congress in history," Pelosi said.Pelosi was wrong about Iraq.
She added, "And nowhere did the American people make it more clear that we need a new direction than in the war in Iraq. 'Stay the course' has not made our country safer, has not honored our commitment to our troops and has not made the region more stable. We cannot continue down this catastrophic path."
She called on the Bush administration to work with Democrats "to find a solution to the war in Iraq."
And she has not run the most ethical Congress ever.
It's the most despicable.
Wrong on Iraq. Wrong on healthcare. Wrong on stimulus. Corrupt.
WRONG FOR AMERICA.
Al-Quds Al-Araby yesterday reported an angle some of us pointed out at the time should not be discounted. They say that Hamas itself believe that “the security forces of an Arab state were behind the assassination”.OR A JOINT MOSSAD/PA/ARAB STATE VENTURE?Jordan and Egypt, eh? Perhaps David Miliband should now summon their ambassadors to the Foreign Office.
Mahmoud Nasser, a member of Hamas’ political bureau, told the newspaper that slain commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh was likely being tracked by agents from Jordan and Egypt prior to the January 19 killing.
Nasser said he had been given information regarding such efforts to kill Mabhouh, adding that the evidence indicated that the assassination was carried out earlier than the alleged agents had planned.
According to Nasser, Mabhouh was in possession of “dangerous” information seen as dangerous to particular Arab elements seeking to topple Islamist resistance.
THAT'S MY GUESS.
"It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world."Jefferson sounds more like Palin than Obama.
"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them."
the just completed decade (2001-2010) had the snowiest Northern Hemisphere winters on record. The just completed winter was also the second snowiest on record, exceeded only by 1978. Average winter snow extent during the past decade was greater than 45,500,000 km2, beating out the 1960s by about 70,000 km2, and beating out the 1990s by nearly 1,000,000 km2. [...]WUWT COMMENTERS:
- Average winter snow extent has increased since the 1990s, by nearly the area of Texas and California combined.
- Three of the four snowiest winters in the Rutgers record occurred during the last decade – the top four winters are (in order) 1978, 2010, 2008, 2003
- The third week of February, 2010 had the second highest weekly extent (52,170,000 m2) out of the 2,229 week record
[STEVE GODDARD:] this is the snowiest decade since the 1940’s in NYC… It will beat out the 1960’s…February 2001-2010 has the highest average for any decade…The top three February snowstorms came during the decade
... Squidly (17:33:42) : It appears to me, judging by the graph, that the warmest decades had less snow than the cooler ones. For example, the 70’s decade has almost as much snow as this decade, whereas the 90’s (supposedly the most severe of warming) had the least snow. So, when Al Gore says that “more snow is consistent with Gorebull Warming”, he is lying out his posterior, is he not?
... Willis Eschenbach (17:46:17) :
Well, there’s graphs, and there’s graphs. I always like to start out with a graph that shows the actual data, not some kind of reduced anomaly. That puts things in the proper perspective, and allows us to see how big the changes actually are. I used the same data used by Steve Goddard, starting in 1971 to avoid early gaps in the dataset.
Here’s that graph:
As you can see, all that this proves is that there is nothing unusual in the data. As I have argued before, there is nothing to be explained. There is nothing unusual about the temperature data. There is nothing unusual about the snowfall data. As far as I know, there is nothing in any climate data outside natural variations, nothing to require an explanation, whether it is CO2 or anything else.
THAT BEARS REPEATING:
There is nothing unusual about the temperature data. There is nothing unusual about the snowfall data. As far as I know, there is nothing in any climate data outside natural variations, nothing to require an explanation, whether it is CO2 or anything else.
There is nothing unusual about the temperature data. There is nothing unusual about the snowfall data. As far as I know, there is nothing in any climate data outside natural variations, nothing to require an explanation, whether it is CO2 or anything else.
IOW: AGW = TFBS.
MAKE IT VIRAL.
MAKE ALL YOUR DEMOCRAT FRIENDS WATCH IT AND SQUIRM.
EITHER THEY ADMIT OBAMA IS A LIAR AND A HYPCOCRITE OR THEY ADMIT THEY ARE HYPOCRITES.
HERE'S THE 2ND MOST IMPORTANT VIDEO.
ROUND UP HERE.
That leaves at least two things a problem for now: whether CAIR's agents know the address of her foster home, and, her legal immigration status. Her lawyers are seeking a special visa for this reason.

UPDATE: GLENN REYNOLDS HAS SIMILAR THOUGHTS:
HEH.Posted at 10:35 pm by Glenn Reynolds
WHO WILL RESIGN FIRST? Paterson? Or Rangel? After they defenestrated Harold Ford Jr., you’ve got to wonder if there’s a place for black men in New York politics anymore. Welcome to postracial America!

PROVING ONCE AGAIN THAT: MENDACIOUS AND SENSATIONALISTIC PROPAGANDA IS THE LAST REFUGE OF THE LEFT.
Complete round up here at MEMORANDUM.
The failure of greenhouse gas emissions regulations to pass through Congress and the steep global recession dealt a severe blow to the nascent market for trading in offset credits in the United States, as seen in data released yesterday by a top carbon market information firm in a new report.
Carbon offsetting in the United States continued to expand as more projects came online and more credits entered the market, said the carbon market information firm Point Carbon.
But the value of voluntary offset credits sharply declined, likely pulling the entire industry's value down to record lows as prices for the three most popularly traded credits fell the hardest.
THE CO2 BUBBLE HAS BURST.
AGW IS DEAD.

Mr Churchill, a campaigner for more resources for the armed forces, had battled the disease for two years. Son of Sir Winston’s only son Randolph, he worked as a foreign correspondent in the 1960s, then served as MP for the Manchester constituencies of Stretford and Davyhulme between 1970 and 1997.
He never achieved high political office but was an outspoken backbencher. In 1993 he was reprimanded by then Home Secretary, Michael Howard, for criticising what he called the “relentless flow” of immigrants from the Indian subcontinent.
Churchill was born in October 1940 at Chequers, the prime minister's official country residence, shortly after Royal Air Force pilots prevailed in the Battle of Britain. During it, Hitler's Luftwaffe was prevented from destroying Britain's air defenses or forcing the country to negotiate an armistice.
He was the son of Randolph Churchill and Pamela Digby, who scandalized London society with her affairs and who, in later life, as Pamela Harriman, became U.S. ambassador to France. The parents divorced in 1945.
"I never knew my parents together, so their split meant nothing to me," Churchill said in an interview with The Daily Telegraph in 2008. "But it did mean I got a great deal of grandparental sunlight."
He recalled staying at Chartwell, his grandfather's home southeast of London, and finding the old man "wreathed in cigar smoke with a whisky and soda already on his table" in the morning. The drink, he added, was very weak.
"Each afternoon, we'd spend a couple of hours together, laying bricks. If anyone had asked me what my grandfather did, I'd have said: He's a bricklayer,'" Churchill recalled.
The four-inch Roman relic, stored in an ornate box, was uncovered by archaeologists working at a fort thought to have been a former Knights Templar stronghold.HMMM: THE TEMPLARS SEEM TO HAVE THOUGHT THIS PARTICULAR NAIL WAS SIGNIFICANT...
It was buried with three skeletons and three swords, including one with the religious order's cross on its blade, on the tiny island of Ilheu de Pontinha, off Madeira.
The iron nail is of the type used in thousands of crucifixions - but it is special. Archaeologist Bryn Walters said: "It dates from the 1st to 2nd centuries. You'd expect the surface to be pitted and rough after so long. But this was smooth.
"It looks like it had been handled by a lot of people over a long period of time and the acid from their hands have given it a peculiar finish."
IF THE TRUTH IS ON YOUR SIDE YOU DO NOT LIE, YOU DO NOT HIDE DATA OR DEVELOP ALGORITHMS WHICH DISTORT CHERRY-PICKED DATA.
HE LIED BECAUSE THE FACTS SHOW THAT THERE IS NO AGW - CLIMATE CHANGE IS NATURAL AND DRIVEN BY OTHER THINGS THAN HUMANITY.

"The Last Train from Hiroshima": AFTER DISCOVERING EVEN MORE LIES, PUBLISHER WITHDRAWS LEFTIST BOOK ON HIROSHIMA
- IT'S LIKE GORE AND THE IPCC AND BELLESILE'S ATTACK ON THE 2ND AMENDMENT: PROPAGANDA BASED ON LIES.
- AS A MATTER OF FACT, I THINK THE PUBLISHER OF GORE'S BOOK AND THE DISTRIBUTOR OF HIS MOVIE SHOULD WITHDRAW THEM FOR THE SAME REASON.
- AND HIS CAMPAIGN CHARISMA HAS VANISHED;
- HE COULDN'T HELP CORZINE OR COAKLEY -
IOW: OBAMA COSTS MORE TO CARRY THAN HE'S WORTH!
(BTW: 11.3 MILLION HOMES ARE NOW UNDERWATER - JUST OVER 10% OF TOTAL MORTGAGES. IN 18 STATES, MORE THAN 20% OF THE MORTGAGES ARE UNDERWATER.)
MANY STARS HAVE DATED LOOKS. NOT HEDY LAMARR.
BTW: IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN "COME LIVE WITH ME" TRY TO. HEDY LAMARR AND JAMES STEWART.
CLICK PIC FOR RANGEL'S LATEST EPITAPH. OF YOU'VE LOST THE NYTIMES AND PETER BEINART... WEL, IT'S TIME TO GO!
I DEDICATE THIS SONG TO CHARLES RANGEL: IT'S THE LAST DANCE, SIR; TIME TO GO HOME - FOR GOOD!
OKAY, CHUCK: CUZ YOU WUZ A MARINE, I'LL GIVE YOU ONE MO TIME ROUND THE DANCE FLOOR - BUT THEN IT'S SPLITVILLE DUDE!
US President Barack Obama is planning "dramatic reductions" in the country's nuclear arsenal, a senior US administration official has said.
This would come as part of a sweeping policy review designed to prevent the spread of atomic weapons, he said.
He added that the new strategy will point to a greater role for conventional weapons.
Mr Obama is to meet his Defence Secretary Robert Gates later on Monday to discuss the new nuclear strategy.
The review "will point to dramatic reductions in the stockpile, while maintaining a strong and reliable deterrent through the investments that have been made in the budget," the official said.
IT MAKES NO SENSE. UNLESS OBAMA REALLY IS A CRYPTO-MUSLIM AND/OR RADICAL LEFTIE WHO HATES THE USA AND THE WEST AND WANTS TO US LOSE.
WHY NO SENSE!?
SIMPLE: THE WAY OF THE DOVES - UNILATERAL ARMS CUTS AND APPEASEMENT - ALWAYS LEADS TO WAR.
SOME MIGHT ARGUE WE KNOW MORE NOW THAN THEN.
January 26, 1989By PHILIP SHABECOFF, Special to the New York TimesCorrection Appended
WASHINGTON, Jan. 25— After examining climate data extending back nearly 100 years, a team of Government scientists has concluded that there has been no significant change in average temperatures or rainfall in the United States over that entire period.
While the nation’s weather in individual years or even for periods of years has been hotter or cooler and drier or wetter than in other periods, the new study shows that over the last century there has been no trend in one direction or another.The study, made by scientists for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration was published in the current issue of Geophysical Research Letters. It is based on temperature and precipitation readings taken at weather stations around the country from 1895 to 1987.
THE ECO-ALARMISTS MAY KNOW MORE - BUT MOST OF IT IS WRONG!
AGW = BS.
CO2 = HARMLESS.
AL GORE PSTFU.

PROVING ONCE AGAIN THAT WW4 HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ZIONISM OR THE GOP OR BUSHCHENEYHALLIBURTONGITMO.
THE ROOT CAUSE OF ISLAMIC MILITANCY - OR JIHADISM, OR WHATEVER YOU LIKE TO CALL IT - IS ISLAM.
ISLAM IS THE ROOT CAUSE.
THE JIHADISTS ARE NOT THE APOSTATES; THE ISLAMIC MILITANTS ARE THE ORTHODOX.
THEY ARE MERELY CARRYING OUT WHAT THE KORAN AND HADITHS AND THE SURA TELL THEM TO DO.
ISLAM IS NO MORE A RELIGION OF PEACE THAN BUDDHISM A RELIGION OF GLUTTONY.
IT MATTERS NOT IF THEY ARE ABU SAYYAF OR MOROCCAN OR ALGERIAN OR MALAY/THAI OR AFGHANI OR PAKI OR TURK OR IRANIAN OR EGYPTIAN OR AL QAEDA OR MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD OR CAIR.
THEY'RE ALL THE SAME.
THE SOONER WE ALL ACCEPT THIS THE BETTER.
IRAN WILL GET A NUKE SOON - IF WE DON'T ATTACK THEM FIRST.
PAKISTAN'S NUKES OR NOKO'S NUKES WILL PROBABLY END UP IN THE HANDS OF TERRORISTS SOONER OR LATER.
UNLESS WE DESTROY THEM FIRST.
THE CHOICE IS OURS.
David Neiwert / Crooks and Liars:Glenn Beck's eliminationist attacks on progressives: How long before someone acts on this violent rhetoric? — David Sirota observes in his column this week the really ugly nature of Glenn Beck's express hatred of progressives, embodied in his CPAC speech:
(UPDATE: I WRITE THIS HAVING SEEN VAN JONES SAY, AT THE NAACP, THAT HE LOVED BECK. HE SAID IT SEVERAL TIMES. TO ME IT SOUNDED LIKE A KISS FROM DON CORLEONE, A KISS OF DEATH.)
I FEAR FOR BECK'S LIFE MUCH MORE THAN THAT OF ANY LEADING LEFTIST.
THE LEFT IS FAR MORE DERANGED THAN THE RIGHT - (ESPECIALLY NOW THAT THE LEFT'S SAVIOUR - OBAMA - HAS BEEN EXPOSED AS AN INCOMPETENT, AND THEY LOOK TO BE HEADED FOR A FIASCO IN NOVEMBER).
UPDATE #2: LEFIESTS ARE NUTTIER THAN RIGHT-WINGER AND MORE VIOLENT: THE ANTHRAX KILLER WAS A LEFTIST OBAMA SUPPORTER. LEE HARVEY OSWALD WAS A LEFIST TOO. SO WAS CHARLES MANSON.
